He said In part: ".Mr. Ilobart was removed from his earthly career ut an when t.'ie manniticellt status of his manhood was reaching its prime; when the grand elements of his charm-tor were ripening to their full development; when liis great usefulness to tlie nation was becoming more aud more apparent. Ills public duties were marked by 7.0111 and devotion to the Interests of the people. The general welfare rather than the conserving of private interests ongiigeil Ills time anil attention. The performance of his duties as president of the senate has ever evoked the favorable criticism of the members of this body, and the justness and fairness of his rulings have elicited their warmest commendation. The character of Mr. Holmrt was as the open day—neither darkness nor shadow rested upon it. The lessons of life, whose pleasant remembrances rob even death of sadness, let UN treasure and may they prove a stimulating .influence in' the conduct of our own." Nobly Hounded Career. Chauncoy M. Depew said In part: 'Mr. Holmrt. won the warm affection of his party associates aud the esteem and respect of his party antagonists. Ho had the faculty of the wisely busy man of always having plenty 'of time, and that he shared with his friends in that hearty aud healthy companionship which has made his name a hospitable memory at the Capitol. Though he died in his prime, with apparently years of usefulness before him, yet his was a full and rich life aud a nobly rounded career. It Is fitting that such a man should fall In battle with his armor on. The consplcuousness of his departure gives lustre to his example. Statesmen, citizen, husband, father, friend, the suin of his worth among us Is that he performed, with faithfulness and fidelity, with conscientious care and magnetic ardor, nil the duties of public and private life." Eulogistic speeches were nlso made by other members of the senate. PrueeedliiRH In the House. In the house a resolution was offered by Tawnoy of Minnesota calling upon the secretary ofr the treasury for in formation ns to the states iu which oleomargarine Is shipped and distributed, the amount in pounds and the nnmlier of licenses for its nmnu fupturn was adopted. It was agreed that when the house adjourned It be to meet on Friday. The house then took n recess until 1 o'clock. The remainder of the session after that hour was devoted to eulogies upon the life and public services of the lute Itopre sentatlvo llreon of Nebraska. AVHITKSIDK CKOSS-HXAMIMiM.

Holly Conlf»tc<l. Manila. Jan. 11.—After u long and tiresome ninrcli from San Pedro Mutate General Schwan's brigade reached Muntinlupa. Tlie enemy left a half hour prior to the arrival of the Maeabebe scouts. They were then ret rent ing to the sou^h. A cavalry scouting party was sent southward, and reported Hint tlie Insurgents were a short distance off. The Insurgents o|iened lire and the cavalry returned to camp, having had orders not to en- agage tin' enemy. General Sclnvaii divided his command, sending two bat- lalions of the Thirtieth regiment and Forty-sixth regiment with a wagon train along the coast toward Hinang. Tlie general himself proceeded along with the Macabebe scouts and Steele's battalion of tlie Twentieth regiment. Colonel Hayes" cavalry and three mountain guns. He took the trail inland toward Hlnang." Kni'Otlllti'rt'll tlu* Klirlliy. AVhen a short distance from tlio town the Macabebe scouts and Hayes' fifty cavalry scouts encountered the enemy. The insurgents were sooi: routed. Two Americans were wounded. The enemy ret fated avross the mountain region of Silam. Major XoIanV squadron of the Klev- entii cavalry went several miles to the westward, but failed to develop anything. San I'cdro Tuiiacan was deserted, and three gun-carriages, found in the canetleld. were evidence that the guns had been recently removed. After our troops had readied (lie broad ricelii'ld near Henan the enemy were discovered calmly watching the advancing troops. They then occupied a position with the protection of a low stone wall along the creek a quarter of a mile long. The Mm-abebe scouts deployed, followed by Steele's battalion of the Thirtieth regiment. Hani righting KxpiM'tiMl. The enemy were in plain vie.w. A formation was effected and the Americans were soon within range. When they .were about 100 yards distant the enemy opened lire, killing Corporal .lohnson, Company K. nu : d wounding two men of Company F of tlie Thirtieth regiment. The men were never before under lire, but advanced cheering. The insurgents retreated to the town. AVhen our troops reached the outskirts they observed the enemy down tlie road in tlie plaza. Hayes' tlfty cavalry scouts charged aud were received with only-a few shots. Th< enemy disappeared, but the presenci of ninny amigos Indicated that they were resorting to the old tactics. Sev eral natives who had discarded their uniforms were found and arrested. The natives here say tlmt the insurgents had six companies of fifty men under General 11 oriel. lilMirKi'iit !.<>*» I iikilow n. They occupied the town and sent a wagon train toward Sllln, or Carmono. \Vheu they heard of General Schwan's advance they left approximately twenty men as n rear guard. The Insurgents' loss is unknown. Four bodies were found, and also one wounded man. Several rifles were captured. Colonel Milliard of the Thirty-ninth regiment entered the town of Raiding three days ago and drove out the in sin-gents. The latter returned subsequently. A scouting party reports I lint the enemy is two miles outside of the Silin road. It is believed that th( American advance will be hotly con tested. IXCHEASK IX FLKE LOSSES.

London. Jan. 11.—Tlie Anus lean flour sely.ed off Uelagoa bay has been released. United States Ambassador Choate had an Interview with tin; Marquis of Salisbury aud received a verbal reply to the representations of the Washington government. The British uoto on this subject was sent later to Die United States embassy. The gist of it was cabled to Washington. In brief, foodstuffs are not considered contraband of war unless intended for the enemy. Durban. Jan. 11.—The British authorities have released the German steamer Her/.og. which was seized Jan. (i while on her way to I-orenzo Marques. London. Jan. 11.—The plight of British arms in South Africa is overshadowed for the present by the storm which is bursting over the head of the home government. The Manchester speeches of Mr. Balfour. the govol'n- nient leader in the house of commons, have loosened such a torrent of comment from the press and individuals' of his own party that wore parliament to reassemble today it is doubtful if the Conservatives would retain power in spite of their tremendous majority of the past session. No Longer Conrealed. 'f'he pent-up dissalisfactiou wltl: the government's lack of energy iu Caging the war is no longer concealed. When such ardent Conservative papers as The Times and Globe come out boldly with reproof there is no knowing whore the agitation will cud. Tho provi %-ial press has already ti:l;en up the cry. For the moment Mr. Hal- four Is the scapegoat, but there i:< a terrible rod in pickle for the Martinis of. Lansdowne. while Lord Salisbury and other cabinet ministers will not escape unless a wonderful change, comes over the war situation. The Associated Press learns that the Conservative leaders privately admit the gravity of the situation, but fall to see what can be done. Meanwhile the successes in Hie field will abate the popular clamor. Some of the Conservative papers go so far as to regret the extreme age of the cabinet ministers nutl refer to the cabinet as n body of patriarchs. Under these circumstances it Is doubtful "whether events transpiring before the reassembling of parliament would be poworfuf enough to restore confidence in the govern* meut and maintain its majority. \VolHpley May lie Saerllleed. There Is the Important alternative that Lord I.ansdowne or Lord Wolse- loy may lie sacrificed. A representative of tho Associated Press learns that Lord Wolsoloy not only disapproved of Lord Koberts' appointment to the chief command of the British troops, but'- allowed his disapproval to be. generally known. It Is a fact that Lord Wolseley knew nothing of the government's Intention In this respect until he saw the announcement of the appoint tiiciil in the newspapers. Whatever ensues, the Immediate future will doubtless see attacks on the government such as Lord Salihuuy has not had to withstand during all the course of his political career. There is a singular dearth of news from all parts of the I heat or of war. General French supplements his advices by reporting that Captain Itl- cardo and four troopers of the Life Guards an- missing, showing that his reciiiinoiii-rlng parly mot with opposition. _ Karl of AVII U.vliiK.
