THE DAY WASTED
No Business Transacted in
GIVEN UP TO FILIBUSTERING
Cannon Wanted. Consideration of the
Sundry Givil Bill, While the Ml
norltr Sotfpht to Promote Pri
vate' Clalxno Nothing Done.
WASHINGTON,-? Feb. 15. Under the
leadership of Cannon, chairman of the
appropriations comrpJttc,e, a long filibus
ter consumed the time of the House to
day. Cannon desired, the- House to pro
ceed "with the 6undryclvil Appropriation
bill, while the Democrats desired to de.
vote the day to the consideration of pri
vate claims. It -was the last day under
the rules -which could be devoted to
claims at this Congress ,a"nd notices had
been .sent out yesterday asking the Dem
ocrats to be In their seats today. As a
result. "Cannon -was outwitted, but he
Kept up the fight all day, forcing roll calls
for three hours and later filibustering In
committee of the whole. The net result
was that the "whole day was wasted.
In anticipation of a contest over the
right of way. Underwood (Dem. Ala.),
the Democratic whip, had sent out notice
yesterday to all the Democrats to be In
their seats today, and there was an un
usually full attendance on that side of
the House. When Cannon saw the drift
he called across the aisle to Richardson
(Dem. Tenn.), the minority leader:
"You're trying to loot the Treasury
On a rising vote, Cannon's motion tpis
defeated. 62 to 74, whereupon ayes atod
noes were called for and the clerk called
the roll. The motion was lost, 105 to.
128, Just before the vote was announced1
Cannon changed his vote irom aye to
no. In order to be in a position to move
a reconsideration of the vote. Immediate
ly upon the announcement of the. vote he
entered his motion to reconsider. Rich
ardson made the point of order that the
motion was dilators. This point of 'order,
coming from a Democrat, provoked some
"It Is clearly dilatory," Richardson con
tinued, when Cannon broke in, "The gen
tleman sent out notices to secure the at
tendance of his party friends."
"The chair overrules the point of or
der," announced the Speaker.
"Then, I move to lay the motion on the
table," cried Richardson.
Upon a rising vote, on this motion, the
opposition showed a majority, whereupon
Cannon called for tellers.
"I make the point that the demand Is
dilatory," shouted Richardson.
"I desire a little time to get our people
here," called back Cannon across the
aisle. "You got yours here."
"The chair sustains the point of order
upon the statement of the gentleman from
Illinois." said the Speaker.
The fact that a veteran tactician like
Cannon should have thus lowered his
guard and have laid himself open to such
a decision provoked howls of laughter on
the Democratic side. The Illinois, member
was attempting to address the chair, when
Moody (Rep. Mass.) called for the aVes
and noes and the demand was sustained.
Cannon's motion to reconsider that last
vote wa laid on the table. 121 to 129.
When the announcement of the -xote was
inadfe Cannon and Richardson were
both upon their feet, demanding recogni
tion. Cannon was recognized and called
up the resolution to reconsider the vote
by which the bill to Issue a duplicate of
a lost check drawn by William H.
Comegys, Paymaster United States Army.
In favor of George P. White, was passed
This bill was passed on the last private
bill day and a motion to reconsider was
entered. There was much difficulty In
getting a vote, but finally the motion to
reconsider prevailed. The question wheth
er the bill should pass ordinarily would
have come next, but the Speaker held
that a motion to postpone the further
consideration of the bill until the next
day upon which private bills were In or
der was In order. Cannon entered such
a motion and it was carried without di
vision. This cleared the way for Richardson,
who moved that the House go Into com
mittee of the whole to consider private
bills, and despite Cannon's objection, the
Richardson motion prevailed, 120 to 103
and the private calendar was taken up.
The remainder of the session was oc
cupied in disposing of two 6mall bills in
committee of the whole. Cannon con
tinued to filibuster to the end, and when
the bills were referred to the House he
made the point of no quorum, and at
B:35 the House adjourned.
WILCOX IS EXONERATED.
House Committee Confirms
lUpht to n Seat.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. Delegate Wil
cox, of Hawaii, today scored a distinct
triumph in securing a unanimous vote
of the House committee on elctions No.
1, confirming his right to a seat In the
House of Representatives and holding
that the charges filed against him were
not sufficient to warrant his removal.
Chairman Tayler was authorized to
make the report to that effect, which will
be submitted la'about a week. After the
meeting Mr. Tayler explained the general
considerations which had influenced the
decision of the committee. The case was
not considered so much in Its technical
aspects, but rather on broad grounds, all
the circumstances, conditions and sur
roundings applicable to Hawaii as one
of our new Insular possessions being tak
en into consideration.
As a delegate from -a. new territory it
was not felt that Wilcox should be met
with the same strict conviction required.
In sustaining the right of a Representa
tive in Congress to his seat, as the dele
gate has only limited powers, and Is little
more than an agent. As to the charges
of treason, the letters placed In evidence
were written prior to the organic act
making Hawaii a teritory, and there was
no disposition to go Jntp these prior Is
sues. Whatever may have been the tech
nical irregularity of the election, there
was the saving fact that a perfect ma
chinery of election was established, a bal
lot box was regularly provided, practic
ally every one participated In the voting,
and the will of the people was expressed.
"And on broad political grounds," said
Mr. Tayler, "we felt that the people of
these Insular possessions should under
stand that they were not to be met by
mere technical objections which . would
deprive them of representation."
Partial Agreement on Indian Bill.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. The conferees
of the Senate and House have reported
a partial agreement on the Indian ap
propriation bill. The 'principal Items up
on which the committee will report a
disagreement are thse relating to the'
San Carlos dam, allowing prospecting
on Indian reservations, making the de-'
cisions of the Dawes Commission for the
enrollment In Indian Territory when ap
proved by the Secretary of the Interior
and the Slsseton and Wahpeton claims
Oleo Bill Will Be Called Up.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. As a result
oflthe.dellberatlons of the Senate steering
committee today, the oleomargarine bill
wll probably be called up in the Senate
tomorrow to the temporary displacement
- -the ship subsidy bill. There Is every
reason to believe It will fall of action.
Indeed, there Is quite a general under
standing that after tomorrow there will
be very little consideration given to any
measure except appropriation bills and
conference reports. There Is considerable
pressure on the friends of the subsidy
bill to withdraw it. but so far they have
declined to yield. There was discussion
of the prospect of an extra session, and
the opinion was quite general that the
outlook In that direction Is favorable.
More Time For Reclamation
WASHINGTON. Feb. 15. Representa
tive Wilson, of Idaho, from the House
committee on arid lands, today filed a
favorable report upon the bill to extend
the provisions of the Carey act indefin
itely. This act, pissed in 1835, gave to
each of the arid land states 1,000,000 acres
of land upon the consideration that the
state would reclaim them within 10 years.
Since the passage of the bill, Idaho,
Utah, Montana and Wyoming have made
application for the segregation of S50.000
acres for reclamation. It was found,
however, that the lands could not be re
claimed within the period fixed in the
Carey act, and this bill extends the time
Favor the Arid Land Bill.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. Senator Hans
brougb referred to the Interior Depart
ment for an opinion on his bill provid
ing that all moneys received from the sale
of public lands In the arid and semi-arid
regions shall be set aside as an "arid
land reclamation fund," for the construc
tion of reservoirs and other hydraulic
works for the storage and dlvprslon of
water. Commissioner Hermann, of the
General Land Office, has recommended to
the Secretary of the Interior that a fa
vorable report be made on the bill with
amendments to meet several suggestions
ho has offered.
A Snmpnon-Sehley Compromise.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 15. Senator Mc
Comas is making an effort to secure a
compromise which will permit confirma
tion of the President's nominations ad
vancing various officers of Admiral Samp
son's fleet for. meritorious conduct dur
ing the Spanish war. He suggests that

and that Congress can pass a resolution
creating the grade of vice-admiral, with
the understanding that those officers be
given, the position. Some opposition Is
made by, supporters of Admiral Schley,
who fear 'that he would not be given the
senior position by the President.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. The Senate
committee on commerce today considered
thc'iquestiQn of attaching to the river and
harbor bill a provision authorizing the
acquisition of right of way of the propos
ed Nicaragua Canal. Senator Elklns is
pressing the mater, but there Is vigorous
opposition to the amendment on the
ground that it would overload the jlver
and harbor bill and also because It makes
no definite appropriation.
St. LonlM Fair Rill.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 15. The special
committee on the Louisiana Purchase Ex
position, at a meeting held this after
noon, authorized Chairman Tawnev next

It was shortly after the war that he

consummate effrontery" had turned upon
the Senator from Rhode Island (Aldrich)
and had demanded 'of him to "withdraw
the bill. The Incident reminded him of
the fable In which the wolf charged the
lamb in the stream below with muddying
the water. Chandler declared that the
opposition to the subsidy bill was com
posed only of a conglomerate of various
political parties and Insisted that the
Senate and the country would realize
thoroughly that their tactics were those
of filibusters and nothing else.
Statement by Hnnna.
Hanna addressed the Senate briefly on
the bill ind was given careful attention
both by the Senators and the galleries.
He said that he had listened with as
tonishment to many statements that had
been made Concerning It by the opposi
tion. Mam statements had been made,
many insinuations had been suggested
that would bring the blush of shame to
any Senator's cheek. He had listened
"to the scolding of the Senator from
Colorado," but desired to remind him that
the Senators were not children, and he
desired him to understand that ho had a
purpose and a desire to uphold and ex
tend the interests of the advocates of
the pending measure. He did not know,
as the Senator had stated, that the bill
would not pass at the present session.
An honest and earnest purpose to secure
the passage of the bill was being made,
because its advocates believed that the
enactment of the measure would tend to
the upbuilding of the merchant marine
and extend the shipbuilding Industry of
"I know something about economic
measures," said he. "I think I .am en
titled to the same consideration In con
nection with such measures as Is ac
corded to any other Senator. I do not
propose to be considered as advocating
any measure to loot the Treasury when
I am working for the Interests of the

the last campaign to break down the
principles advocated by the Republican
party, and, shaking his finger at Teller,
he added: "You got your verdict and jou
will get It again."
He insisted that being honest and
earnest In his advocacy of the shipping
bill, he should be accorded fair and just
"I'll not be sidetracked," he declared,
"by any Senator of the opposition. If I
am to take a side track I will decide
myself when I shall take It."
He next resented the Insinuations that
he said had been made against him as
the chairman of the National Republican
committee. He said he was not advocat
ing the pending bill in the interests of his
party, but In the Interests of the whole
,flt It Is the object of measures pend
ing before Congress merely to get money
out of the Treasury." said Hanna, In
conclusion, "what Is the river and harbor
bill? I say that there are provisions m
that bill that would make the shipping
bill look pale."
Teller made a brief reply to Hanna and
the Senate, at 6 o'clock, adjourned.
"Will Re Brought Up Xext Seanion.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15. The subsidy
bill Is positively dead for this session.
The meeting of the Republican leaders
today positively decided that, and, more
over, Frye and Hanna realize that It
can not be passed this session. If there
Is an extra session there Is a possibility
that the bill, amended to meet the criti
cism of Republican Senators, will be
brought forward, and an effort made to

Doctors on the Stand at the Hamil
ton Murder Trial.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.. Feb. 15. The
medical experts continued their testimony
today In the trial of Frank H. Hamilton,
on the charge of murdering Leonard Day.
Dr. Erdmann, professor of anatomy for
the University of Minnesota, by the aid
of an articulated skeleton, and also using
one of the state's attorneys for Illustra
tion, showed how, In his opinion, the fatal
knife-thrust was delivered from behind
Day, and how, with the sharp edge of the
blade toward the back of the murdered
man's body, a piece was clipped out of a
rib. The state's attorneys, aided by oth
er medical experts, put him through a rig
Id cross-examination, but failed to shake
him In his dtductlons.
Dr. George E. Rlcker testified as to the
bruises on Hamilton's head after the af
fray, and said they might all have been
caused by one blow with some Instrument.
Paul Gyllstrom. a reporter who covered
the affair for the Times, testified that,
during all the time he was at the West
Hotel, Hamilton made no confession, nor
did he say anything about the matter.
Dr. J. L. Stone, who attended Hamilton
at the jail, testified to the various contu
sions on the prisoner's head, and said
they probably were all made by a cane or
stick of some kind.
R. L. Lewis, recalled, could not remem
ber whether he had sent a pair of trou
sers containing a bloody handkerchief to
a cleaning and repairing establishment.
If so, they were not the ones he had on
that night at the West Hotel.
The defense.rested In the afternoon, and
court adjoufned until tomorrow. The prin
cipal evidence of the afternoon had to do
with Evans' trousers, sent to a cleaning
house the day after the murder. H. G.
Robinson, an employe of the house, testi
fied to having received the clothing and
to having noticed a clot of blood on one
leg and something like a cut about an
Inch below the knee. A. G. Gilbert, an
other employe, corroborated the evidence
as to the bloodstain and the cut, and add
ed that there was also a, tear that had

Kee, of Boston, when he was arrested in
the act of smuggling six of his country

Maine border, which led to the belief that
an organized band of Chinese have been
engaged In smuggling their fellows Into
this country, with the collusion of Gov

many letters, which gave a clew to the
methods employed In evading the Immi
gration laws. In one of the letters Sam
spoke of having successfully brought 1000
Chinamen across the border In the past
Sam, who was at one time a Chinese In
spector, was at the head of the organiza
tion. A Chinaman who was to be smug
gled In was furnished with a certificate of
earlier date, containing an original valid
second sheet, with the affidavits and sig
natures of two white witnesses, testifying
to the applicant being a merchant In this
country. To this sheet there was annexed
one photograph of the man seeking admis
sion, and a forgery of the United States
Commissioner's seal, which was necessary
to make the certificate good. The favored
method, it Is said, was to cross the line in
the district of some Commissioner sup
posed to "friendly," and then take special
pains to be arrested. A casual examina

for admission, before they departed from
