Providence, Dec. 31. Dean & Shlbley,
( brokers and bankers, have taken charge
of the arrangements to consolidate the
paper manufacturers of this country.
This deal will involve about $40,000,000.
It will include the mills making writ
ing, bond, wrapping, ledger, envelope
and news paper. The purpose of this
consolidation of conflicting interests Is
to eliminate competition, to stop over
production, to make a condensation of
the lines of manufacture so that the
mill best adapted to make a certain
grade of paper may restrict its atten
tion to that specialty, thus by utilizing
all the machinery and capital invested
to the best advantage to get the best

This force, which Is under the command
of General Marcus P. Miller, consists
of the Eighteenth regular infantry.
Battery G of the Sixth regular artillery
and the Fifty-first Iowa volunteers. It
was parried on three transports and
convoyed by the cruiser Baltimore and
the gunboat Callao. General Miller is
regarded by the war department offi
cials as a very capable officer.
The general instructions which have
been given to General Otis regarding
his Intercourse with the insurgents are
to deal kindly with them, but to be very
firm when called upon to make a de
cision. It is hoped by the administra
tion that General Miller has already
succeeded in getting possession of Hollo
without .serious trouble, and it is be
lieved that if he has done so the back
bone of insurgent opposition to the au
thority of the United States will be bro
ken, especially in view of the fact that
Aguinaldo's old cabinet has refused to
serve him any longer and that there
have been many defections from the
ranks of his followers on the lBland of
Larger Force Needed.
Officials of the war department would
feel much easier if General Otis had a
larger force at his disposal in the Phil
ippines. Six regiments of regular In

Its full war strength of 1,272 men, are
under orders for the Philippines, but
none has yet started. It had been hop
ed that there would be no necessity of
bringing matters to an issue with the
Insurgents until after the arrival of
these regiments. General Rios has,
however, disarranged the plans of the
administration In this matter by sur
rendering Iloilo Just before the arrival
of the American troops.
There are circumstances In connection

belief in some quarters that it was the
result of orders from Madrid, given for
the express purpose of giving trouble

Had he delayed his surrender only a
few days he could have turned the city
over to the American troops sent by
General Otis to occupy the city. This
dispatch, received from General Otis,
dated Manila, Dec. 27, Bhows that he be
lieves the Spanish commander acted
under orders from Madrid:
"Sent Colonel Potter on fast vessel to
Iloilo on the 24th to communicate with
Spanish general, Rios; latter evacuated
evening of 24th and Potter 39 hours
late; Insurgents took possession of city
on 26th, and Potter found Aguinaldo's
flag flymg. Cannot now report probable
results; will not hear from there for
four days, as no cable communications.
Spanish forces have evacuated all sta
tions in southern islands, except Zam
boanga, Mindanao, by orders, as they
say, from Madrid."

What Everybody Koows,

Charnb-rlain, an intimate friend.
The immediate cause of death was
pneumonia, which dcveloied from an
attack of grip contracted about a week
ago. The venerable senator was con
fined ti his home but seven days.
In tlie death of lion. Justin Smith
Morrill the senate lost its senior mem
ber in point of service and its oldest in
agt-. He had served continuously In the
senate for more than 31 years, and he
was 88 years old on the 14th of April
last. With the single exception of Hon.
Galusha Grow of the house of repre
sentatives, he was the only man In con
gress whose congressional career began
prior to the beginning of the civil war,
and he had the honor over Mr. Grow In
that his congressional service had been
continuous, covering in the senate and
house combined almost 44 years. Mr.
Monill was a native of Vermont. He
was first elected a member of the
Thirty-fourth congress, taking his seat
at the first assembling of that body aft
er the 4th of March, 1855. He was re
elected to the Thirty-fifth. Thirty-sixth,
Thirty-seventh, Thirty-eighth and Thirty-ninth
congresses and was In 1867
elected to the senate to succeed Hon.
Luke P. Poland. He held his seat In the
senate since that date without interrup
tion, having been elected six times suc
cessively. His present term, to which
he was chosen in 1896, would not have
expired until 1903.
It was at the beginning of the war
that Mr. Morrill's practical business
training, first brought him forward as
a man of national reputation. He was
the author of the Morrill tariff act of
1861, which was the basis of all tariff
legislation of war times. In 1864 he be
came chairman of the committee on
ways and means, the principal commit
tee of the house, and at that critical
time of especial importance.
After entering the senate Mr. Morrill
continued to give his attention largely
to financial and commercial questions,
and during the greater part of his term
of service he was identified as a. mem
ber of the committee on finance, which
committee deals especially with these
subjects. He became chairman of this
committee in 1877, succeeding Senator
Sherman when the latter entered the
cabinet of President Hayes, and he held
this position continuously after that
date except during the Forty-sixth and
Fifty-third congresses, when the Demo
cratic party controlled the senate, and
during those intervals he continued at
the head of the Republican representa
tion on the committee.
During his long career Mr. Morrill
gave his attention to many questions,
and no man in public life was more
given than he to taking up a subject and
holding on to it through years and
years until consummated. He was the
real father of the scheme for the con'
struction of a building for the Con
gressional library, and to him and Sen
ator Voorhees, who early Joined him In
pressing this question upon congress, is
the splendid library building a monu
ment. Very near to his heart also was
the plan for the erection of a sister
building for the United States supreme
court. He had been pressing a measure
looking to the construction of such a
building for many years and had on
three different occasions prevailed up
on the senate to pass his bill for this
purpose. His last appearance in the
senate was on the 19th Inst., when he
made a speech of half an hour's dura
tion In advocacy of the supreme court
building. He at the same time prevail
ed upon the senate to pass the bill In
the face of some opposition. To Sena
tor Morrill probably more than any
one else was the present splendid en
dowment of most of the state agricul
tural colleges due. He was the author
of the original bill giving aid to these
colleges from the proceeds of the sales
of the public lands, and he had never
refused them the encouragement of his
Mr. Morrill was an Indefatigable
worker, and, while not an orator, he
spoke gracefully and forcibly and was
always listened to attentively. His
great age and high position caused blm
to be universally esteemed by the other
members of the senate.

Badger Moore Gets Nineteen Years.
William A. E. Moore was sentenced
by Recorder Goff in New York Tues
day to 19 years in the state pris
on for robbing Martin Mahon on the
night of Nov. 4 in the rooms occupied
by Moore and his wife, Fayne Strahan
Moore, in the Hotel Grenoble, by what
is known as the badger game. Within
half an hour after the imposing of the
sentence Moore's lawyers had procured
a temporary stay of sentence from Jus
tice Daly of the supreme court.
Moore was found guilty after two
trials, the first ending in a disagree
ment of the Jury. The second trial was
concluded two weeks ago, but sentence
was deferred. Mrs. Moore, the wo
man in the case, was tried last week
for complicity in the crime. She stren
uously denied on the witness stand that
she had any knowledge of Moore's
scheme to rob Mahon. After a trial last
ing six days the case was submitted to
the jury, which was unable to agree up
on a verdict, having been in dellbera
tlon 24 hours.
Mrs. Moore was remanded to the
Tombs and will probably be arraigned
for a second trial next week.
