SANITARY REGULATIONS Washington March 1 The pan American congress has adopted the report of the committee on the subject of sanitary regulations The report after discussing the question of sanitation as it effects nations recommends thB consideration of tho following propositions by the conference That taking the existing state of relations between the nations of America it is as practicable as it is advisable lor the promotion of those relations to establish perfect accord with respect to sanitary regulations that the greater part of the ports of South America on the Atlantic are guided and governed by decisions of the International convention of Rio de Janeiro of 18S7 that although it does not appear that the plans of the sanitary congress of Lima of 1889 havo passed into tho category of late national compacts it is to be hoped they will be accepted by the governments that participated in said congress because these plans were discussed and approved by medical men of acknowledged ability that the sanitary convention of Rio de Janeiro of 1887 and the draughts of the congress of Lima of 1889 agree in essential provisions to such an extent that it may be said they constitute one set of rules that if they were duly observed iu all America they would prevent under the circumstances tho conflict which usuully arises between the obligation to care for the public health and the principle of freedom of communication between the countries that the nations of Central and North America wore not represented either in the snnitary convention of Rio de Janeiro orthe congress of Lima but they might easily accept and apply to their respective ports on both oceans these sanitary regulations SEDGWICK POST A Second Lodge of the Grand Army Estab f limbed in Fort Worth Capt George

position in the house legarding the Worlds fair that its papers resorted to personal vituperation and petty slings to whip every member in lino who had an opinion not in accordance with the Chicago idea This is not journalism nor is it good breeding Mr Kilgore can afford to stand upon tue record he has made in congress He is a conscientious fearless and independent man He is not an obstructionist in the general meaning of the term He Is desirous of legislat ng for the greatest good for the greatest number and he na3 always been consistent In his policy and vote upon all public

Gazette and shot across the wires to the principal papere in the United States is without an iota of truth In fact nothing uncommon has been found either in the shape of an old fort excavation or anything else of the kind m tho region indicated fifty miles west of Paris The report is without the semblance of probability and comes purely from the scenes where imagination holds forth the form of things un unknown As the foregoing was written by the correspondent of the Dallas News before the article appeared in TnE Gazette it shows that the writer did not know anything about the matter It was an apology for being scooped and being a novice in journalism and unacquainted with its amenities ho did not know what else to say No one here doubts the story in any particular and the correspondent of the News would have gladly sent it to his paper if he had known it It will be noticed that the item in the News says tho place is fifty miles northwest of Paris when it was stated in Tub Gazette that it was fifty miles northeast The following items from tho Dallas News are significant AIT OLD OLD STORY Blossom Tex Feb 25 The old fort story which is not new now at all probably took shape in
