"WASHINGTON". Feb. 9 Almost the
entire session of the Senate today was
devoted to the consideration of the ur
gent deficiency appropriation bill, which
wan passed practically as It was report
ed from the committee on appropriations.
The only discussion was over an amend
ment suggested by Patterson to strike
out the provision relieving- alien work
men on the canal from the operation of
the cisht-hour day law. Patterson con
tended that to require men to labor more
than eight, hours a day in the tropics
was inhuman and argued that the re
quirement would do Injustice to Ameri
can labor. Several Senators on both sides
of the chamber controverted the position.
The amendment was voted down without
resort to a roll calL
At the beginning of the session For
akcr presented an amendment to the
statehood bill, directing the method of
proceeding in Arizona and New Mexico
oh the question of admission. It directs
that within SO days after the approval of
the statehood bill the Governors of the
two territories shall, respectively, call
elections for submitting the question of
statehood. Voters of the two proposed
states shall vote separately, and the
union shall not be consummated until a
majority of the votes in each territory
arc cast In the affirmative
The urgent deficiency appropriation
bill was laid before the Senate and de
bated at length.
Patterson moved to strike out the pro
Mskm abrogating the eight-hour law
upon the canal zone. Money opposed the
"What It all means in plain, brutal
English, Is that there is being prepared
on the Isthmus a slaughter-house for
aliens, and that the canal Is to be built
at a fearful cost, not only of money, but
-of life," responded Patterson in persist
ing in his amendment.
Galllnger called attention to the state
ment of the canal officials that sanitary
conditions on the Isthmus were much
Improved, and Patterson replied that
these statements did not correspond with
tike testimony given to Senators.
Tillman also took issue with Patterson,
saying that "when the Colorado Senator
makes an appeal for alien labor he would
better look a little closer home and con
sider the American laborer, who in the
end must pay for building the canal."
Patterson withdrew his amendment
and offered another fixing the limit of a
day's labor on canal work at 10 hours
Instead of eight. The amendment was
TJUman expressed dl.saUsfaction with
the relationship between the Canal Com
mission and the Panama Railroad Com
pany, and said he hoped the Canal Com
mission would find means of unifying the
canal and the road. Hale agreed with
Tillman on this point.
The bill was then passed, and at 3:0S

irCSHES PRIVATE PENSIONS
mouse Breaks Speed Record and
Amends Philippine Tariff.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9.-The ' House
today ground out Its usual semi-monthly
gTist of private pensions, passing in 72
minutes 429 bills for the benefit of vet
erans who arc barred for one reason or
another from coming In under the general
statute, and thus made a new speed rec
ord for SUCh bills. Bevntv.fiT-
of the benficiaries arc either blind or
bed-ridden. This order, with a number of
minor bills and the passage of two
amendments to the Philippine tariff act
of 1905, constituted the transactions of the
day. The tariff amendments place Amer
ican cotton goods on an equality, so far
as the cost of production is concerned,
with European goods. Low grades of
shoes were admitted at a lower tariff. The
House adjourned until Monday.
The bill to amend the Philippine tariff
act was called up by Payne (N. Y.). chair
man of the ways and means committee.
He explained that the bill related to cot
ton goods and shoes. The cotton manu
facturers in this country, ho said, made
goods 22 Inches wide European manu
facturers weave in double this width and
then cut the strip in the center, thus sav
ing half the cost. These goods are known
in the trade as "false salvage" goods, and
on them the rate Is raised to the point
which does away with the discrimination
against American goods. Low grade and
children's shoes are placed in a lower
class, making the tariff less, as Payne
stated, to encourage the wearing of shoes
in the islands. No one wished to debate
the bill, which passed without objection.
GOVERNMENT OF CANAIi ZONE
Jfagoon Tells Senate Committee
Many Interesting Things.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 9. Charles EL Ma
goon. Governor of the Panama Canal
Zone, was before the Senate committee on
interoceanlc canals today, and gave his
testimony in connection with the investi
gation of the canal work. In response to
a request from Chairman Millard, Govern
or Magoon outlined conditions upon the
isthmus when he was assigned to duty
there last Spring. He had, he said, found
an excellent organization for the Govern
ment zone, but men there were much
overworked and anxious over the possible
effects of tire reorganization. No re
movals were made.
He said the sanitary force was also
well organized, and it had done and is
now doing excellent work. The Govern
ment had been especially fortunate In se
curing in the force a number of Army
men who had been engaged in the sanita
tion of Cuba, Governor Magoon contend
ed that fever conditions In Panama are
better than formerly.
Under examination by Morgan, the
question was raised whether tho
courts, as constituted by the Isthmian
Canal Commission, could deny to an
American citizen his inherent right to
trial by Jury when charged with a capital
offense. Judge Magoon said that pre
sented a serious question.
In a general discussion of the subject.
Senator Knox said he should not like to
decide what the ruling of the United
States Supreme Court would be in this
matter. Jury trials are not had In the
canal zone, nor In the Philippines nor
in the latter had the Supreme Court up
held the system as applied to the trial
of a native Filipino. Senator Knox said
he could not say what the decision would
be If an American, going to possessions
of the United States, were tried and con
victed in like manner.
At the afternoon session. Judge Magoon
continued his explanation of the govern
ment of the Canal Zone. Ho said that the
apparent 49 per cent profit made by this
Government through, the purchase and use
of Panaman stamps surcharged '"Canal
Zone," would not pay the coet of the pos
tal service in the zone, and said legisla
tion would be necessary to adjust the
matter. About half the land there is
claimed by private parties.
Ono explanation given by Governor Ma
goon of the interest the United States had
In establishing the Panama currency was
that the use of American money
doubled the .price of everything, as the
people wanted as many silver dollars
worth 100 cents as they had received pesos
worth 50 cents for articles sold.
Discussing .the necessity for the coin
age system and the agreement by which
the United States agreed to maintain the
parity and tho associated banks agreed
to supply sliver to the Commission, Gov
ernor Magoon said that the new currency
became so popular that it was almost im
mediately absorbed by commerce.
Morgan asked If the United States
should not establish a Subtreasury on tho
Isthmus to aggravate the necessity for
silver. Governor Magoon replied that that
could be done, but that as rapidly as the
silver was shipped to the Treasury and
paid out it would disappear and never
como back; that the people liked the
money because It was stable, and It drove
out all other circulating mediums.
"That Is about the most logical free
sllvcr plan exploited since Mr. Cleve
land ' began Morgan. He had meant
to say Mr. Bryan, but after a pause ho
completed his observation as he began,
and said: "Since Mr. Clevoland disap
peared." The examination of Governor Magoon
will be continued Monday.

on the resolution introduced by Repre
sentative Sulzcr. of New York. In re
gard to the sales of old New York
Custom-House property. The resolu
tion called for information as to whon
the deed was executed where it was
deposited, and why It has yot been re
corded In New York County, and for
Information in connection with the sale
of the propertj'.
Mr. Sulzcr stated to the committee
that the authorities in New York have
not been able to find when the deed
was executed or where It was depos
ited, or any information concerning it.
He also assailed the Treasury Depart
ment for the transaction, pronouncing
It an unspeakable outrage on the Gov
ernment and on the City of New York.
He stated that the property was worth
$6,300,000 when it was sold, and Is
worth $13,000,0j0 now. He stated that
more than 51.000,000 had already been
paid to the National City Banlc for rent.
He further stated that not a dollar
bad been paid for the property by the
National City Bank. He declared that
there ought to be an investigation by
Congress of the whole affair.
Secretary Taylor, of tho Treasury
Department, replied to the charges. In
the first place, he said, no deed had ever
been executed; therefore It could not be
deposited anywhere, and could not be
recorded. The reason the deed had not
been executed was because the property
-was not fully paid for, and, under the
contract, tho National City Bank was
not compelled to make final payment
and get the deed until the new Custom
House was completed.
In reply to the charge that the Na
tional City Bank had not paid a dollar
for the property, he said the full
amount had been actually transferred
to the credit of the Government at tho
Subtreasury in New York, making a
payment as complete a though tho ac
tual currency bad been paid over.
Mr. Taylor stated that tho transac
tion connected with the sale of tho
Custom-House property was as Clean
and intelligent a transaction as any
ever made by a public ofllper.
The resolution of Mr. Sulzer provides
that the Attorney-General shall furnish
Information about the deed. The com
mittee agreed to make a favorable re
port on Mr. Bulzer's resolution after It
shall have been amended so that the
Secretary of the Treasury Is named as
