Tne bdi wi placed on the calendar The Ht-u- took up as a special ordor tu eleotion of directors cf ti:e D?;ii aud Dumb School at Morgans.;;. On motion it was postponed.' Aile;. said some doubt had arisen anions thr Senators as to whether there shou d I e a joint ballot or separate ballot for Cue members of the board of interna, improvements, and that the Snuate had held a separate tlecUon.

Thirty-ninth Day. The Houne passed the suffrage bill by a vote of l to 27. The debate was orened by Roundtree, chairman of the committee that reported the bill. The bill before the House was. he said, a substitute ft,r the original Winston bill prepared by the committee. Roundtree reed from the constitution of Massachusetts, which State has an educational qualiii cation, except that tho defendants of all persons who could vote on May 1 1867, can vote. He Haul: "There U not the slightest difference of principle between that law and the one we now have under consideration. Ocrs is to protect us agaist ignorant negraa. The Massachusetts law is to protect the State from ignorant foreigners. A perfect whirlwind of applause, lasting nearly a minute greeted the conclusion of Mr. Rountree's spoech. which was delivered with powerful effect. He was fol lowed by Isaac Smith, colored, of Craven. Of all sad thoughts to him the saddest was that the very peo ple whom he had hold up to his rate as their best friends were now about to disfranchise them. The negro, he said, regarded their right to vote as the dearest thing on earth. "I tell you in four years from now you'll want to re consider today's action and can't." Fortieth Day.

The House took up another special order a batch of bills regarding salaries aud fees of State officials and the heads of various institutions, etc. There was also a substitute presented by the com mittee on salaries and fees. The sub stitute was therefore considered. The bill does not affect the salaries of the present State and judicial officers, as the constitution forbids suoh legisla tion.

The next section reduced from 825 to 815 clerk's fees in case there is contest of an ac count. The House rejected this section.

The vote waa yeas 4:1; nays 43. The Speaker broke the tie by voting no and was applauded. W0IRIED BY THE CLEIILLAS. Wae Soldiers Wounded, One of Whom Bat Since Died. A special from Washington says: Oeneral Otia has cabled the War De partment the names of nine American oldiers wounded on Tariqnina road, north of the pumping station, Friday. Of these, Private George Adams, com pany A, First Nebraska, died. The re portsTof such skirmishes as those noted above, and the stories of frequent fir ing by concealed natives, upon the American outposts, have conveyed the impression to the officials here that General Otis is being rapidly brought to a pass where he most assume a most vigorous offensive campaign. Although no instructions have yet been sent to him it is assumed that he will feel jus tified soon in doing this to prevent the demoralization of his troops, and also to make his position tenable in the approaching wet season. The nature f the country around Manila favors the tactics the insurgents Beem to have adopted, after learning that they could not faco the American soldiers in the open field, and it doubtless will be General Otis' task, just as soon as his reenfercements reach him, to clear them away. In is estimated that at the rate of progress now making by the transport Grant, tho 1,800 troops on that ship will land at Manila aboat March 4. A couple of weeks later the Sherman will arrive at the same place with a similar number of troops and two weeks after that the Sheridan is due with the troops now embarking at New York. Loubet Elected President. A special from Paris says M. Loubet was elected President Saturday after noon. He received 483 votes, against 279 oast for M. Meline, and 50 scatter ing. The newly-elected President has promised to devote his best efforts to fulfilling the wishes of the country and to "reunite the Republicans who have drifted asunder by the current of un happy evonts." The new President comes from the part of France where the Roman power lasted longer, name ly, Marsanne, in the department of Drome. He gives the impression of remote Latin origin, and looks to be a solid, practical man, who sees the facts of life just as they are. As President of the Senate he has official and other experiences that will be useful to him as President of the republic, but he is essentially a plain middle-class mau, whose mind was sharpened by his practice at the bar in the provincial town of Montelimar in the south of France. lie is there most popular, and every one at Montelimar counts himself a personal friend of Loubet, who, as mayor, co-councillor, Deputy and Senator, always acted as the ser vant of the public. Obliging to his neighbors, he was as accessible as was Grant or Lincoln, and not less unpre tending. To Limit Suffrage. A special from Raleigh, N. C, says: An amendment to the constitution of North Carolina, limiting suffrage, has been adopted by both branches of the General Assembly. It passed the House by a vote of 81 to 27, and the Senate by a vote of 41 to 6. It will be eubmitte 1 to a vote of the people in August, 1901, at the same time State officers are voted for. The avowed ob ject of the amendment is to eliminate the ignorant negro vote. To do this educatioaal, property and poll tax qualifications are prescribed. But this is made iceffective as to white people by the further provision that any per son car; vote who was entitled to vote on January 1, 1867, or anytime prior thereto, or whose ancestors were so en titled to vote. Six Negro, s Drown, d. At Bishoville, S. C, a negro man named Ned Bostic found that the water of the river was rising around his house. He got an old boat and placing his family, consisting of his wife, Emily, and his children, Irene, Ben, Rollins and Burrell,m it, tried to reach a point of safety. As he neared the bridge on the Wilmington, Columbia & Augusta Railroad, however, the boat went to pieces and the entire party was drowned. Oyster Boats Carried Out to Sea. A special from Cape Charles, Va., says: Fifty oyster sloops and schoon ers have been carried out to sea by drifting ice frcm Magothy's Bay. It is believed many are manned and the crews may suffer from exposure and hunger. Tugs will be sent to overhaul the drifting vessels. The recent order of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad for five thousand steel coal cars to be built by the Pressed Steel Company and the Carnegie Com pany, brings the total purchases of the receivers of the Baltimore & Ohio Rail road up to 30,864 since March 1st, 1896. The locomotive purchases during that time have been 216, of which about 20 re still to be delivered. The Company has also purchased rive postal cars, ten express cars, ten combination cars and six dining cars. Five Frozen Bodies Float Ashore. A special from Cape Charles, Va,, says: Shelly Banks, an old colored man who drives a delivery wagon be tween here and Capeville, was found frozen to death in a snow drift about two miles from his home. Five bodies, two white and three colored, floated ashore on Smith's Island. It is thought the men were trying to get ashore on the ice from a boat and were frozen. A special from Brunswick, Ga., says the Ma' lory steamer, City of San An tonio, from New York to that city, is over due and grave apprehension ia felt for its safety. The San Antonio ia re ported to have 100 tourists on board from New York and Boston for Flor ida. Stealinf Water in Havana. Enormous frauds in the water distri bution in Havana have been discovered by the committee appointed to inquire into the finances of the city. It appears that one-fifth of the householders in Havana have been stealing water, with the connivance of the the Alcades .de Barrios aud the mayors of 39 wards, who are also water inspectors in their respective districts, the city losing by this means between $60,000 and $80,000 a year, a percentage of this amount go ing into the pockets of the alcades. The frauds have been perpetrated for years back. Now comes an endless chain idea that possesses the merit" of distinct originality. A Milwaukee, preacnei by this method has nearly 20,000 per sons praying for the conversion of sin ner of that wicked city.

The President in Boston. Boston, Mass. (Special.) The crowning event of the day ard the principal feature of the President's visit to Boston was the banquet ten dered him by the Home Market Club at Mechanics Hall. The Presidential party left the Hotel Touraine under cavalry escort at 4:20 and proceeded through an immense cheering crowd direet to Mechanic's Hall. The recep tion was held in Paul Revere Hall, and for over three-quarters of an hour President McKinley and other dis tinguished guests stood ia line and were introduced and shook hands with fully 2,500 persons. At 6 o'clock the bugle sounded, announcing that the banquet was ready to be serve I and the immense company marched into the hall, while the band played. The President's table was made conspicuous by immense boquets of American Beauty roses and pinks. On the walls were large portraits of Washington, Lincoln and McKinley and underneath was the word "Liberators" in large let ters. Upon the balcony was a picture of Admiral Dewey, with the motto, "To the Captain of a German ship: You must not sail by the United States flag without saluting it." and his famous command at Manila: "You may fire, Gridley, when ready." President Mc Kinley sat at the front of the platform and among those at his table were Mayor Quinoy, of Boston; Secretary Long, Secretary Alger, Governor Wol cott, Secretary Gage; Postmaster Gen eral Smith and Secretary Bliss.
