Ilolli 1 louses of I lie N.ilional Assembly
MoNi'Av. Most of the new Senators
were on the floor when Vice-President
Hobart ailed the Senate to order at
noon. Senator I hivis, chairman of the
Foreign Relations Committee offered a
resolution referring back to that com
mittee the treaty of arbitration. The
resolution was adopted. While in Ex
ecutive session the Senate confirmed
the nomination of Mr. James. All
parties in the Senate devoted consider
able time to the solution of the prob
lem of tilling the Senate committees.
Ti'i:siav. - For a little more than two
hours this afternoon the l'emocrats of
the Senate endeavored to reach some
conclusion upon the question of or
ganizing the Senate. Like the Repub
lican caucus of Saturday, it was fruit
less in results. The effort to take the
organization from the Republicans was
antagonized by some leading democrats
for various reasons. The result of lhe
two-hours' session, therefore, was con
centrated in the appointment of a com
mittee of conference. The belief on the
part of the h'nding Republican Senators
is that the silver lemocrats cannot
count on the vote of gold l'emoerats in
any plan that contemplates the organi
zation of the committees by the silver
vote ot tli' Senate.
Wr.OM.soAV There was an unusually
large attendance of Senators at the
opening session. Ex-Senator Hansom,
of North Carolina, now minister to
Mexico, was on the lloor and was cor
dially greeted by his old associates.
The ' Vice -President laid before the
Senate a communication from Governor
Kiadlev. of Kentucky, setting forth
that he had appointed Andrew T.
Wood, of Montgomery county, Ky., as
Senr-tor from that State. The com
munication w as referred to the commit
tee on privileges and elections.
Mr. Hoar gave notice of two amend
ments to the rules, w hich were read.
Thev were both radical innovations
upon the practice of the Senate for a
centurv past. l he first was "to enable
the Senate to act on legislation when it
desires, after reasonable debate." It
provides that when any bill or resolu
tion has been under consideration more
than one lav any Senator could demand
the debate closed. If a majority of the
Senators so decided, thre should be a
vote without further delay. The other
was in relation to calls of the Senate, so
that if a suggestion be made of the ab
sence of a quorum, the presiding offi
cer, instead of instantly ordering a call
to he made, shall determine the matter
and report whether there is or not.
' iter some executive business and
h-ciissioti the Senate adjourned sine
Try It Yonrself.
A very curious fact Is the impossi
bility of moving your eye w hile exam
ining the reflection of that organ in a
mirror. It Is really the most movable
part of the face; yet. if you hold your
head tixtnl and try to move your eye
while watching it. you cannot do it
even the one-thousandth of an inch.
Of course, if you look at the reflection
f the muse, or any other part of the
face, your eye must move to see it.
Rut the strange thing is that the mo
ment you endeavor to jiercelve the mo
tion the eye Is fixed. This Is one of the
reasons why a person's expression as
seen by himself in a glass is quite dif
ferent from xv hat It Is when seen by
WKKK'S ItKVIKW OK TRADE.
Continued Activity and Fairly Steady
Bradstreet's weekly reriew of trade
says: "Continued activity in various
industrial lines, based on au expanding
consumptive demand, fairly steady
prices for staples, further improvement
in railroad earnings and widespread
confidence that the volume of business
will expand materially in the near fu
ture, constitute the trade features of the
week. Jobbers at Chicago and St.
Louis do not find the activity
expected at this time, but re
port a fairly- steady- request by
mail order and visiting buyers.
"Rank clearings, as a tra haroma
ter, point to a temporary check to the
tendency to increase noted earlier in
the year, the week's total. i'.rJ'.i.OOO.Ooo,
being H per cent, less than last week
and 2 per cent, less than the second
week of March, ls.Mi. February gross
railroad earnings tend to improve, al
though comparisons with that mouth
in loitij still favor last year. Total
earnings of 1 lt railroads for February,
this year, aggregated $:4,1-j,.I01, a de
crease of 7-1 of 1 per cent. from, the
total of February, 1 :!. This is a bet
ter showing than that in January or in
any month since September. The
coalers, trunk lines and the South
western roads all show gains in Febru
ary over a year ago. "
R. G. Dun and Co. in their week's
leview say: "lhe money markets con
tinue especially favorable to industrial
recovery, and there is no such specula
tive epedemie as to lock up an exces
sive share of available capital. Cotton
is not active, though a sixteenth higher,
for the curtailment of consumption by
many mills does not yet help prices in
the least; nor the suspension of print
cloth reports, and dealers so generally
hold back orders for other goods that
the tone is weak.
"Jrou furnaces, March 1, were pro
ducing Hi;,!lMt ton: weekly, 7,027 tons,
or 4 per cent, more than Feb. 1, and
although visible stocks have increased
:0,trJ4. the increase in four weeks, still
more furnaces have started this month.
The demand for finished products still
lags behind the supply of pig iron, ex
cept in the great steel works whose
fctocks are not reported, but their orders
without doubt cover the full production
for several months. Eessemer pig i.i a
shade low er, but no other change in quo
tations appear, ami there is a gradual in
crease in the demand for plates, sheets
ami all the wire family tit products.
With the advent of spring without, and
outdoor work, much more business is
expected. The starting of the Mary
land Rail Works under contract with
the Carnegie Company, in order to
make shipments by water more cheaply
is significant. The volume of business
shown by clearings is but l.s per cent,
smaller than last year.
"The failures for the past week have
been 2" in the United States, against
;JD0 last year, and 01 in Canada, against
00 last year.

Remarkable Kecord of a Week
Money Uolng Invested.
The Manufacturers' Record's weekly
report of Southern business interests
shows that industrial and financial mat
ters are receiving increased attention,
and that the indications throughout the
South generally point to a marked im
provement in business affairs. During
the week the Georgia Kailroad and
Ranking Company has sold . 1,000. on.)
5 per cent. lion. Is to retire ( per cent,
bonds; the Seaboard Air line has sold
$1,000,000 " per ceut. bonds to retire s
percent, bonds; the details have been
completed for the building hy leading
cotton manufacturers of New England
of a Soon. i ii m cotton mill in Alabama;
contracts have been let for the con
struction of the buildings for the steel
plant in liirniingham. thus definitely
assuring the establishment of large
steel works in that city; a company has
been organized to develop a :,0!i0-horse
power near Gainesville, (in., tr elec

week; a company to lnanufacturecro.-s
arms and insulator pins for electr c
w ires has purchased l.ooo acres of t m
ber land in North Carolina, and w ill is
tablish a large plant.
There are but a few indications to il
lustrate the diversity and extent of the
industrial enterprise reported during
the past week. In all parts of the
South, and in all lines of industry, as
well as in railroad construction, the in
dications for increased business seem to
be more promising than for many
months. There is no great rush, but
a steady, gradual improvement that in
dicates a solid and substantial growth
with, increasing activity in the near fu
ture. Seventy-two titles au Hour.
The riant System has broken the
100-mile fast record in the South xvith

THE DREADED SAN JOSE SCALE
Makes Its Appearance Murder In
Mitchell County Suit for Dam
The following bulletin has been sent
out by the North Carolina Agricultural
Lxjieriniental Station: "The Experi
ment Station regrets to announce that
the dreaded San Jose scale has reached
North Ca oliua. Bulletin No. 130 de
scribes ine character of this destructive
pest, the damage w hich it has done to
the fruit industry in other States and
w hat it is likely to do in North Caro-
l.na, unless it is stopied at once. It is
stated ia the bulletin that from a single
pair three billion insects may result in
a single season. Although these scale
insects do not move from one place to
another of their own accord, vet they
are blown by the wind or else carried
on the feet of birds to other orchards
not infested. Such is the rapidity of
increase that these orchards will scon
be covered and thetrees w ill be destroy
ed in a very- short while, besides being
a standing menace to other localities.
The Horticultural Society, aided by the
Experiment Station, has prepared a bill
which is now being considered by the
Legislature, the puriose of which is
to rppoint an unsalaried commission to
prevent the introduction and spread of
such pests. There are other insects and
fungous pests as bad as the San Jose
scale. The commission, if established,
will prevent large losses in horticul
tural and agricultural crops from other
pests. Some of these pests are: The
cotton boll weevil, now proceeding
northward from Mexico and lexas; the
gypsy moth (to destroy which the Stale
of Massachusetts has already spent
$0.10,000); the tobacco leaf miner, a re
cently discovered insect of most de
structive tendency, and the peach yel
lows, which has practically ruined the
peach orchards of many States. The
above bulletin contains a copy of the
bill now before the General Assembly.
It is believed to be one of the most im
portant that the Legislature has before
it for consideration.
The Exiieriment station, at Raleigh,
for a number of years past has been de
veloping a sugar corn that would have
the prierities of held corn adapted to
this latitude, combined with tho table
qualities of ordinary sugar corn. It is
believed that characteristics o: such a
cross are now permanently fixed. The
station desires to place a small package
of the corn in the hands of careful par
ties who will give it atrial ami who w ill
promise to reirt results next fall. This
should not bo plan tec near field corn.
Io applicants who will agree to the
above conditions and will Feudfotir
cents for xetiun jiostago and expense of
mailing, the station will be glad to
send packages as long as the supply-
lasts. Apply to tho North I arolimi
