000 In direct appropriations for work
The appropriation for improvement

Inserted at Che end of the paragraph
that before entering on any work; ex
amination shall be made by the board
of engineers with a view of modifying
the project In such way as to diminish
the cost thereof and If the project can
be modified, work Is to be done In ac
cordance with such modification. Oth
erwise it Is to be In accordance with
the project submitted by Captain Har
ris. IN THE SENATE.
Important senate amendments ' in
clude the following:

cotract Instead of $222,000; Columbia

guage retained an appropriation of

Washington! May 2?.-a fruitless
effort wa made just before adjourn
ment of the senate today to secure an
agreement on time for v.ite on the
Philippine bill. Discussion indicated
that some day next week, eventu Riy.
would be agreed upon, but no time was
fixed on alternate Tuesdays, beginning
next week for a vote on the Philippine
bill, Ntcaraguan canal and Cuban re
ciprocity bill and that final adjourn
ment be agreed on for the fourth
Tuesday, but it was too startling to
be taken seriously, although some sen
ators regarded it favorably. For sev
eral hours today Patterson discussed
the Philippine bill, concluding his
speech of yesterday. He urged that
Filipinos be granted independence and
drew an eloquent word picture o' turn
ing over to the Flllpdnos by the United
State of the Island when they had
established the government.
