ren Enjoy the Occasion.
Washington, March 31. The Eas
ter Monday- egg rolling at the White
House lot today was unique in the
history of the feast Previous Juve
nile occupants of the White House
have had to be content to watch the
sport from the windows of the. execu
tive mansion, but today all the Roose
vent children and their companions
took active part Such a wonderful
attraction as this greatc outdoor fes
tival has not been known since the
practice began years and years ago.
All the children of- the city crowded
the beautiful lawns, rolling eggs down
the slopes and then tumbling them
selves after them. Boys in the pret
tiest and brightest clothes mingled
with young newsboys and street gam
Ins. Girls with nurses and little mis
ses who never knew what it was to be
watched at their sport, helped to
swell the throng. Here and there gay
young belles frjomi society's most sa
cred precincts paused for a bright
half-hour to watch the crowds of
happy children, and over all floated
the music of the marine band.
Thousands' of children made it a hap
py day, but it is safe to say that none
were gayer than Kennit, Archibald
and Quintin. Roosevelt

lowed to be recorded In favor of. the
measure. The democrats who voted

Virginia; McClelland, of New York.
Democrats who voted against the bill
are: Cooper, of Texas; Newlands, of

session was an animated one. Fifteen
or 20 amendments were voted upon,
all being defeated except that offered
by Grosvenor, requesting Cuba to
adopt the American contract labor
law, as well as the immigration and
exclusion laws, before reciprocity ar
rangements shall go into effect. All
attempts to amend the bill in accord
ance with the views and wishes of the
heat sugar men failed miserably. The
test came on Tawney's amendment re
ducing the differential on refined
sugar. Chairman Payne ruled this
amendment out of order, as not ger
maine. Tawney appealed from the
decision of the chair, but the chair
was sustained by the full republican
vote, Bave Tawney. Among the
amendments defeated were those by
McClelland, making the reduction 50
40, 30 and 25 per cent, Instead of 20
per cent, and by Tawney that the new
