A lively tilt occurred in the River and
Harbor. Committee between Hermann
and Jones of Virginia. Since Blanchard '
is out and Catchines became chairman
of the committee Hermann had secured
increased . appropriations for Yaquina
and Tillamook Bays and the Columbia
and Willamette rivers. Jones made a
bitter onslaught on Hermann's efforts,
and ridiculed the small commerce of the ,
first two named places, and moved to re
consider the vote bv which Iiercunn
had secured the increased allowances.
This led to an excited personal contrv
versy, Hermann warmly relented the
criticism of these waterway's, and cave

nre, the Representative says, is designed
t put corporations in the hands of re
ceivers appointed bv Judges and courts
of the United States in the same condi

these taxes as if no receiver existed. It
often happens that corporations by order
of the United Stales Courts pass into
the bands of receivers and remain there
for, a number of years, during which
time taxes assessed aaainst them and
their property are paid or not paid, ac
cording to the judgment and hcrelion
and sometimes the cr-ike of the Fed
