"Slush Fund" Attacked.
WASHINGTON', Feb. 8. In connec
tion with a resolution offered by Sen
ator Dolllver providing for the print
ing of a detailed statement of expen
ditures of the Agricultural Depart
ment, there was an incidental discus
sion of the forestry bureau in the Ken
ate today. The resolution was adopted.
Senator Dixon, of Montana, asked
why the Agricultural Department had
been singled out. In doing so he com
plained of discrimination against the
Department because of the Balllnger
If the expense account-of the forest
bureau was to be printed, he wanted
accounts of the Land Offloe printed
also. He wanted to know what had
been done with the $1. 000, 000 appypri
ated for special agents.
Hangers Attend School.
He also would have the Postoffice
Department and other department ac
counts printed. He desired especially
to know whether It were true that
the Oovernment was paying railways 9
-ents a pound for carrying matter for
which the express company paid one
half cf a cent.
Mr. Dixon also undertook to correct
'what he said was a misapprehension
'concerning expenditures for the edu
cation of forest rangers. He said that
Ht had been charged that $200,000 had
been paid for the education of these
onen, whereas in Western state univer
sities, where rangers were admitted, no
tuition was charged. He said there
pWere foir such institutions, and that
160 rangers had been admitted. He
watd that, when attending these schoolB,
they were under Government pay, but
'that the attendance had come In the
Winter, when there was nothing they
icould do in their regular work.
Tillman Calls It "Humbug."
In response to a query from Mr. Till
lir.hn, Mr. Dixon admitted that t"he rang
ers were not appointed until after they
lhad undergone a civil service examina
tion and, Avhen the Montana Senator
Wieclared that even then the rangers
needed further instruction, the .South
Carolinian declared the whole thing a
Mr. Money expressed the opinion that
1he document should be' printed. He
waid that the present agricultural law

He did not approve of the system and
thought the forestry service should
,ibe thoroughly classified.

Dixon ga'e notice that he would offer

UESERVE Fl'XD IS DEBATED
Fear of Too Large Accumulation
Kj pressed by Senator.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 8. The reserve
feature of the postal savings bank bill
received especial attention when that
measure was taken up In the Senate to
day. Deprecating any tendency toward
a reserve jund. Mr. Rrlftow said that the
amendment pujepested by Senator Page
providing for such a fund would result in
the accumulation of from J4O.000.000 to
rro.ooo.noo. This he did not consider
Mr. Hallinger contended for an ample
provision for a reserve as necessary to
protect -poor depositors. The section
regulating deposits was attacked tjy Sen
ator Burton because it committed the
Government to an experiment in banking
which he never could Indorse.
Inevitably, he said, bank deposits would
seek their centers in the large cities, and
this law of finance and of trade should
be recognized it the bill.
