Congress Appropriates $10,000,000 for
Washington, T. C. Disregarding
parly lines, the house Monday night
adopted a resolution to appropriate
510,000,000 for the purchase of food
supplies for destituto women and chil
dren In Germany.
Sent to tho senate by a vote of 210
to 97, the measure stipulated that the
foodstuffs were to bo bought in the
United States and transported to Ger
many in shipping board vessels.
Three hours were devoted to debate,
after which a gcoro of amendments
were offered. Only ouo, by Repre
sentativo Jones, democrat of Texas,
which provided that the supplies
should be purchased wherever possibl
inrougn tanners organizations, was
adopted, ICS to OS.
A amendment by Representative
Fitzgerald, republican, Ohio, would
have sought to prevent expenditure of
any of tho appropriations until a sol
dler bonus bill was enacted into law.
It was thrown out on a point of order,
while an amendment by Itcproscnla
tlve Underbill, republican, Massachu
setts, to withhold tho appropriation
until tho German government spends
mi equal amount for tho sumo purpose,
was rejected, 10S to 81.
Itepresntalivo Fish, republican, New-
York, author of the resolution, and an
ex-service man, led tho fight for adop
tion, while Representative Conally,
democrat, Texas, directed the uttack
against the measure.
Representative liurton, republican
Ohio, declared tho resolution to be
constitutional, while an opposite view
was taken by Representative Tucker,
democrat, Virginia. Tho Ohio mem
ber said it afforded an opportunity for
"charily" and needed relief. Mr. Tuck
r Insisted It would tend to consult-
date the German vote, but would mean
nothing as a relief measure because
but 2 1-5 cents per day was available
for each of Germany's 2,500,000, chil
li ren.
Tho resolution, Representative Mc
Keown, democrat, Oklahoma, said at
tempts to excuso tho United States
lack of a foreign policy" nnd instead
or relief, Franco should bo made to
adopt "u proper course" towards Ger
many or "pay her debt to the United
States." On (ho contrary, Representn
tivo I.n Cuardin, republican insurgent
New York, declared tho bill would do
more good In fivo minutes thun the
league of nations In fivo years."
A warm appeal for tho resolution
was made by Representative Cooper,
republican insurgent, Wisconsin, who
said that although Germany might
have sufficient food, It was destitute
of money with which to purchase It.

urday began their fight for lower
freight rates on stock shipments from
tho producing centers to distributing

aminer of the interstate commerce
commission. The complainants are
the Cattle & Horse Raisers' associa
tion of Oregon, Northwest Livestock
Shippers' Traffic league and Portland

ers' association, the Cattle & Horse

tlon has been brought are the North
ern Pacific, Oregon-Washington Rail
road & Navigation company, Oregon
Short Lino railroad and the Spokane.
Portland and Seuttlo railway.
Tho approximate reduction asked,
although tho voluminous tariffs show
considerable variation, amounts to
about $15 a car on shipments from
Idaho and eustern Oregon to Portland,
Seattle and Tacoma.
Addltionul new rates aro asked, in
cluding a double deck rate on hogs
from eastern Oregon, which it is said
would save from $00 to $70 a car, a
reduction of from $30 to $40 a cur on
the double deck rate on hogs from
Idaho and tho establishment of rates
for diversified farmers providing for
a deck of sheep above a dock of hogs
or ubovo a deck of calves.

Idaho, during the morning hearing pre
seated u detailed study of the traffic
situation. Ho testified to the material

ments on tho lines under fire, from the
interior points to Salt Lake and points
in Colorado, Is considerably less than
the rate charged on shipments to the
Pacific coast, although the distance is
(ho same and tho comparative con
ditions of haul equal. The cast bound
rates, he showed, average about $20 a
car above tho rates to Portland, Se
attle and Tacoma.
