CHANGE GRAFT BILL
Hill and Harriman Responsible
for Profable Amendments.
STEAL WILL BE MADE LESS
Subsidies to Steamship Lines From
San Francisco and Seattle Will
Probably Be Eliminated, But
Spreckels May Get Gifts.
CHICAGO. Jan. 29. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Washington says:
Although the subsidy bill was report
ed to the House by a series of suspic
ious steps. It has not had an easy time
of It since then and the prospect now
Is that if put through at all It will be
only after a serious amendment. J.
J. Hill and E. H. Harriman, are prin
cipally responsible for the repeated
black eyes which have been given the
bill of late.
Mr. Watson, of Indiana, the Repub
lican whip of the House, who has un
dertaken the work of putting the bill
through made a canvass of Republican
members of the House, only to find
that It would be impossible to secure
a majority for a hard and fast rule
which would prevent all amendments
to the committee bill.
It has been decided, therefore, to
let the subsidy measure come up on
its merits and receive such treatment
In the way of amendment as may be
measured out to It.
Unless some further sharp practice
Is resorted to, and It Is hardly likely
the speaker Cannon would consent to
such a thing, it Is almost certain that
the proposed subsidies to the Hill and
Harriman Steamship lines from Seat
tle and San Francisco to Japan would
be cut out of the measure. There Is
a chance that the 1200,000 gifts to
Spreckels for the line he has been
running by way of Hawaii to New
Zealand and Australia may be retain
ed. If the Hill and Harriman para
graphs go through at all the amount
of the subsidy almost certainly will be
reduced. The most probable compro
mlse Is to retain the mall subsides
for the lines to South America but
changing the two lines proposed to
Rio Janlero and Buenos Ay res so that
one of them might start from a Clulf
port and the other from New York or

A telegram was received and posted
at the Western t'nlon office In tols
city yesterday mrning from North
Head, announcing that a four-masted
schooner, the Irene, from San Fran
cisco, vi in distress In the lower
harbor, or just beyond It. It seem-'
that the vessel came up to the bar
the night before and held off and on
till daylight, when her master took a
notion to come In. He did so, and
had cleared the bar when the wind
hauled on him and he let go his an
chor In good safe water and awaited
the coming of the tug which he knew
would not be long In heading out. The
Wallula went down on her early
schedule und son,-, had the Irene In
the city channel, ready for her up
river towage. There was never a mo
ment of danger for her. and her cap

ported in distress when he had flown

position to warrant their bending.

for service at Nushigak Hay .luring t In
coming salmon season. Her (barter

has severity days In which to make

ample time. Captain Murchlson, who
has sailed before In Alaskan waters,
Is anxious to make the promise voy
age once more.
The matter of the repairing of the
British bark Melanope, now in the
lower harbor here, Is still In statue
