IM FOR CANAL
Senate Disposes of the
THERE IS NO DIVISION
Bailey Warmly Attacks Civil
AN OUT-AND-OUT SPOILSMAN
Texan Says if He Were President
He Would Not Allow a Demo
cratic Indorsement to
The Senate passed the Panama Canal
bill, and -eras then treated to a spirited
speech, by Bailey on civil eervice.
Bailey announced In plain terms that
ba bad no sympathy "with the lrldlscent
dream of civil service. He declared
that each party should control the
patronage -while In power, and vowed
himself a spoilsman. Hale was In ac
cord with much that Bailey eaid, but
thought that Congress could not bo In
duced to change the law, even though
convinced that It should be changed.
The appropriation for the service waa
under debate when the Senate adjourned.
tloned that one of the chief offenders
had been a Democrat. He predicted
that If the present system should bo
continued the country "would soon havo
a civil pension list.
Hale Interrupted Bailey -with the
statement that he fully agreed -with
much that tho Texan had said; yet, ho
added. It "was Impossible to cet a
chanjre because of tho unwllllnfirnesa of
Congrrss to put Itself on record. He
called attention to tho fact that when
ever there was a rollcall on the sub
ject In the House of Representatives
it failed to sustain other votes agralnst
tho civil service system. "In view of
this fact," he asked, "does tho Senator
from Texas think there is the slight
est chance of a change?"
Pall Resting on Congress.
Bailey replied that he did not think
there was, and Hale said:
"Is there not a sort of pall resting:
on Congress which prevents its ex
pressing: its conviction as to what
should be done?"
Gallinser asked -concerning: executive
orders creating: civil service positions
for many hundred employes in tho
rural delivery service. "You mieht
have someone in the Senate ask ih
Postmaster-General what members of
Congress recommended their appoint
ments" remarked Bailey, and a laugh
was provoked at this reference to the
recent controversy In the House.
At 5:40, the Senate adjourned.
MOVE TO GET MOYER OUT.
WASHINGTON. April 15. Tho Senate
today passed a Joint resolution ordering
tho printing of 10,000 copies of the report
of the Anthracite Coal Strike Commission.
Tho Joint resolution authorizing Major
T. "W. Symons, of the Corps of Engineers,
to act as consulting engineer in connec
tion with the navigable canals of New
Tork, was adopted without debate.
The postofflce appropriation bill was re
ferred to a conference committee.
A bill extending to the outlying posses
sions of the United States the law pro
hibiting the transmission by express of
obscene literature from one state to an
other, was passed.
Tho Panama Canal bill was taken up
and its reading continued. When the last
section of the bill, that providing for a
Government depository In the canal zone,
was reached, Aldrlch moved It be
stricken out, saying the committee
on finance was of the opinion that It
should not be retained, notwithstanding
the recommendation of the Secretary of
Morgan congratulated Aldrich upon the
motion, at the same time expressing his
"I am astonished at the Senator's bold
ness in venturing upon a course not in
dorsed by the Executive department," he
said, "but I hail it as an indication of the
return to the virility manifested by the
Senate in its earlier days." (Laughter.)
Halo, upon the suggestion of Aldrlch and
Hopkins, withdrew his amendment requir
ing that men, supplies, etc, be shipped
to the Isthmus in American vessels. It
was also suggested that the McComas
amendment extending the coastwise laws
to the business with Panama be with
drawn, and Morgan made this suggestion
the basis of a speech In which he said
that unless the United States should take
complete possession of the canal zone it
could not adequately regulate such mat
ters as the admission of supplies or men
to be used on the canal.
President to Approve Salaries.
Spooner took issue with this view, con
tending that the United States would have
as much right to regulate these matters
as If the canal were entirely within the
limits of this country. Spooner spoke in
favor of the amendment proposed by Mor
gan that the pardoning power rest in tho
Governor instead of in the commission.
He moved also that a new section be add
ed providing that all salaries or other
compensation fixed by the commission
shall be subject to the approval of tho
The amendment was adopted, as well as
one requiring more Tigld accounting to
the President by members of the commis
sion. Baker offered an amendment at the end
of the first section of the bill providing
that "the payment of 510.000,000 to Panama
provided for in article 14 of the treatv
shall bo made in lieu of the indefinite ap
propriation made in the third section of
the act of June 28, 1S02, and is hereby ap
propriated." The amendment was adopt
ed after an explanation that this would
clear away all doubt as to the authority
to make the payment.
Morgan mado a final speech against
tho bill and ceased speaking at 3:25 P.
M. In less than a minute afterward,
tho bill was passed. There was no di
vision. Immediately after the passage) of the
canal bill, the sundry civil appropria
tion bill was taken up and the reading
of the amendments begun.
Bailey Attacks Civil Service.
There was no debate until tho amend
ment authorizing the Secretary of the
Interior to appoint agents for the pro
tection of publlo timber, "without re
gard to party affiliation," was reported.
Gorman made an inquiry concerning the
civil service feature of tho provision,
whereupon Bailey made an attack on
practices under the civil service law.
He spoke of tho civil sorvico require
ment as a "dream, an lrridescent
dream," and added the conviction "that
the present President has suspended the
civil service law in order to make poli
tical appointments more times than all
of his predecessors." Ho then an
nounced himself a spoilsman and said
that ho "delighted in it," adding ho
never had been able to attain the intel
lectual enthusiasm of those who would
entirely disassociate an applicant for
office from political conviction.
"I believe," he said, "that to the vic
tor tho spoils belong, and if I had my
way under a Republican administration,
I would not allow a Democratic in
dorsement to be filed, nor would I as a
Democrat permit the filing of a Repub
lican Indorsement under a Democratic
Asks No Favor of Enemies.
Tie added that he would ask no fa
vors of political enemies, and said if
such favors were granted he would not
think much of those who granted
them, as he would know that they
would expect favors 4n return. He had
no complaint, he declared, that the
Republicans now appoint their parti
sans, and he did not complain when
there were violations of tho law under
present conditions. There never had
been more scandals in the department
than since tho present system was in
augurated, ho said, and if the Republi
cans had been able to turn the Demo
cratic rascals out of office when they
took control of the Government, they
would not now be able to plead every
time the Postofflce scandal was men-
Miners' Federation Asks Court to Re
lease President on Habeas Corpus.
DENVER, Colo., April 15. Attorney F.
B. Richardson, representing tho Western
Federation of Miners, today filed In tho
State Supreme Court an application for
a writ of habeas corpus for Charles H.
Moyer, president of the federation, who
has been held as a prisoner by the mili
tary authorities at Telluride nearly three
weeks. The petition recites the "refusal
of Adjutant-General Sherman M. Bell to
obey the writ of the District Court," and
alleges that the incarceration of Mr.
Moyer by the military is arbitrary, wicked
and unlawful, and furthermore Is in
violation of the fourth amendment to'the
Constitution of the United States and in
violation of the state laws.
Declarations are mado that there is not
and has never been a state of insurrec
tion and rebellion In San Miguel County.
Assertions are made that Mr. Moyer has
been subjected to the grossest indignities
for the purpose, the application aays, of
causing him to show some trifling act
of disobedience so his captors may slap
CHURCH AVEETED HASSACRE.
Russian Influence Used for First
Time to Allay Race Trouble.
ST. PETERSBURG, April 15. It has
Just developed that the powerful influ
ences of the church was used in. Bessar
abia to prevent trouble between Chris
tians and Jews. For the first time, so far
as known, the church stepped in to avert
another Klshlnef affair.
From the beginning of the war, Jews in
Bessarabia, like the rest of the popula
tion, had shown their readiness to serve
their fatherland, which was expressed In
their declarations of loyalty to the throne
and their donations to tho sick and
wounded. This was pointed out by the
Governor, who urged the bishop to direct
his clergy to communicate the facts to
the people. The bishop immediately in
structed all the priests of his diocese to
explain on every convenient occasion the
loyalty and patriotism of tne Jews and
to point out that reports to the contrary
were false, adding that he should be In
formed of all cases where enmity was
displayed toward the Jews.
In St. Petersburg this order is regarded
as an extraordinary precaution, which is
bound to influence the future relations of
the Christians and Jews.

Makes a Confession.
JACKSON, Miss., April 15. Ed. Gam
mons, who murdered Lake Kinney and
the latter's daughter Fannie, with whom
he was In love, at Walter "Valley recent
ly, has made a confession. His statement
regarding the death of the young woman
is sensational. He says after he killed
Mr. Kinney in the field, he went to the
house and told tho girl of his deed. At
first they planned to run away and be
married, but the girl changed her mind
and asked him to kill her, which he says
he refused at first to do. Then she tried
to get the pistol away from him. He
then told her to step off a few paces and
turn her back, which she did, when he
shot and killed her.

Alabama Congressman Says the Re

Consideration of tho general deflclen.
cy bill was resumed In the House, after
a number of minor bills had been
passed. Tho President's recent order
reffardln-; service pensions was at
tacked by Underwood (Dem., Ala.),
who contended there was no -warront
In law for It. The President -was also
criticised by Hay (Dem., Va.) because
of certain suspensions of the civil serv
ice rules and regulations. General de
bate on the deficiency bill closes today,
and the bill will be read for amendment.

WASHINGTON April 15. When the
House met today, a resolution was agreed
to directing the Secretary of tho Treasury
to furnish the House with tho names of
National banks which during the months
of September, October, November, De
cember, 1903, and January, February and
March, ISOi, applied to him for the retire
ment of National bank notes and the
amount of such notes so retired.
Bills were passed authorizing the Secre
tary of the Treasury to enlarge the build
ing site In the City of Los Angeles, Cal.,
and to increase the limit of cost of such
building, providing for an additional Cir
cuit Court Judge in the First Judicial Dis
trict; amending the revised statutes so as
to provide for the detail of retired officers
of the Army and Navy to assist In mili
tary instruction in schools; permitting tho
Missouri, Kansas & Oklahoma Railroad
Company to soil its franchise and prop
erties to the Missouri, Kansas & Texas
The general deficiency bill was taken
up for furthor consideration, and an
agreement reached limiting general debato
to four hours.
Underwood (Dem., Ala.) attacked the
provision in the bill supplying a defi
ciency of $4,000,000 for pensions, which,
be said, represented 1,500.000 as the result
of the President's recent order regarding
ago disability, and asked if there was
proper authority of law to pay those pen
sions under that order.
Underwood said the Republicans were
undertaking to sustain the order of senil
ity issued by President Cleveland. "If
Cleveland were rlcht" said Hemenwsv.
"we would have to retire some of our
distinguished gentlemen from public life."
After remarking that the Democrats
were not attempting to sustain Mr. Clfvp-
lanas oraer, Linaerwood asserted he had
long repudiated tho ex-President on that
Criticising the proposed early adjourn
ment. Underwood inquired if it was be
cause the Republicans were afraid to in
vestigate the frauds known to exist In
tho Government departments and permit
the country "to look at the books." "Tho
power of legislation," he said, "has been
transferred to the Preldent, although the
Republicans still Insist on being allowed
to pass appropriation bills."
Hay (Dem.. Va.) criticised President
Roosevelt for the number of suspensions
of the civil service law, rules and regu
lations. He said that, although while
serving on the Civil Service Commission,
the President had been most strenuous In
posing as "the great civil service- reform
er," he, since he came Into executive office,
had made 00 suspensions of the law,
whereas In Cleveland's two administra
tions and the administration of Presi
dent Harrison no suspensions were or
dered, and only three such suspensions
had been made by McKInley.
Cromer (Ind.) criticised the apportion
ment of appointments to Federal offices..
The House agreed to hold a session
on Sunday, April 21, for the delivery of
eulogies on the life and character of the
late Senator M. A. Hanna and Represen
tative Sklles, of Ohio.
At 5:10 P. M. the House adjourned.
VETERANS HAVE WRONG IDEA
Age-Pensioning Order Does Not Give
Them Two Allowances.
I WASHINGTON, April 15. To make
clear the actual effect of the provisions
of the recent pension-age order of Com
missioner Ware, the following official
statement was made today:
"There seems to be an Impression among
many of the old soldiers that allowances
of pensions under the 'age order' of the
Commissioner of Pensions are an addition
to pensions allowed heretofore.
"This Is an erroneous Idea of tho order.
The law prohibits the payment of more
than one pension to a person for the same
period, and the effect of the order on
those having a pension already will be
only to increase such up to the age limit,
if the pension already drawn Is below
WILL TAKE UP STATEHOOD BILL
Republican Members of Committee
to Get It Up in House Tuesday.
WASHINGTON, April 15. The Repub
lican members of the House today by
unanimous vote agreed to take up tho
statehood bill recently reported from the
committee on territories and begin Its
consideration in the Houes Tuesday. The
length of debate is to be fixed by a rule
to be presented from the committee on
rules, probably on Monday. This' rule
will permit only ono amendment to the
bill as reported from the committee, and
probably will limit debate to four hours.
This amendment will require that the
constitutions of the new states to be
formed shall contain provisions against
the sale of liquor to Indians.
Tho proposition before the caucus was
a resolution presented by Representative
Hamilton, of Michigan, chairman of the
committee on territories. Mr. Hamilton
and nearly every Republican member of
the committee on territories made
speeches in favor of the bill.
Confirmed by Hawaiian Senate.
HONOLULU, April 15. The Territorial
Legislature has adopted practically with
out change a bill making appropriations
for territorial expenses as recommended
by Governor Carter. The Senate has con
firmed a number of recess appointments,
also the nomination of A. J. Campbell to
succeed A. N. Kopolkal as Territorial
Treasurer. Kopolkal was appointed Judge
of tho Second Circuit Court recently by
President Rooseyeit to succeed J. W.
Kalua, removed. The Senate also con
firmed the nomination of L. E. Pinkham
as President of the Territorial Board of
Health. The special session of the Legis
lature will probably adjourn next Mon
day. Thus far there has been the great
est harmony between the House, Senate
and Executive Department.
Prospects for Philippine Bill Poor.
WASHINGTON, April 15. The prospects
are not regarded as flattering for the
passage at this session of Congress In
Its present form of the Lodge-Cooper bill
for the adoption of the act governing the
Philippine Islands. Secretary Taft has
been apprised of the situation, and Is
making personal appeals to Democratic
members not to oppose its passage. A
movement has been started looking to the
abandonment of the section giving Gov
ernment aid to railroad building in tho
Philippines. If this is eliminated and sev
eral other amendments can be agreed
on in advance. It Is probable the bill will
