GORMAN AMENDMENT ADOPTED
It Provides That the Army Shell Not
tte Increased Permanently Beyond
1901 House Proceedings In Uetail.
VVahington, March 1. After aeon
test that will be memorable in the his
tory of the senate, the compromise
army reorganization bill was passed
this evening at 7:10. When the sen
ate oonveiied, at II o'clock this morn
ing, it seemed more than likely that
the bill might he passed during the
day. Gorman, of Maryland, insisted
that his amendment providing that the
army should not bo increased perma
nently, or beyond July 1, 1901, be in
corporated in the measure. For sev
eral hours it appeared probable tWit his
insistence at least would throw the
bill over until tomorrow, and perhaps
defeat it. An agreement was reached
finally, however, and Gorman's amend
ment, in a slightly modified form, was
accepted. The vote was 55 to 13.
Then the senate took np the sundry
civil bill and completed its reading, all
the committee amendments being
agreed to, except those relating to the
District of Columbia. The bill was
then laid aside to be completed tomor
row. In the House.
The houBe was in session seven hours
today, and sent to the senate two moie
appropriation bills, the army, which

The former carried about t'9,000,
000, and the latter, approximately,
(4,700,000. The final conference re
port upon the Indian appropriation bill
was also adopted. The only amend
ment of importance attached to the
army bill was one giving two months'
extra pay to enlisted men in the regu
lar army who served beyond the limits
of the United States during the war
with Spain, and one month's extra pay
to those who served in the United
States. The discussion of the admin
istration's policy relative to the Phil
ippines, which has been occupying the
attention of the members to the exclu
sion of almost everything else during
the consideration of appropriation bills
for the last two weeks, was continued
today, several speeches being made on

Spanish Commissioners Rossato and

The Washington Senate Passes an Ap
propriation of S3S.OUO.
In the Washington senate Saturday
there were passed five bills appropirat
ir.g a total of (20,000, establishing fish
hatcheries as follows: At Willapa
harbor, Wenatchee, Skykomieh, Nook
sack and Snohomish rivers.
A bill regulating the praotice of phar
macy was passed by a unanimous vote.
- Other bills passed were: Authoriz
ing the appointment of deputy coal
mine inspector; authorizing counties to
invest the surplus ourrent expense fund
(this bill carries an emergency clause);
one bill was favorably recommended.
It set the legal rate of interest at 6 per

The government has received a long

but refuses to impart its contents.
The Imparoial, which asserts that it

the Americans and the Tagalos. The
courage and stubbornness of the latter
have caused great anxiety to the
Americans, who do not conceal their
belief that the war will be a lonsr and
desperate one. There is the greatest

Discredited In Washington.
Washington, Feb. 28. The govern
ment officials here discredit the state
ment in the above dispatoh that the
foreign warships are disembarking
troops at Manila. Spanish sources of ,
information, respecting affairs in the
Philippine islands, are not to be relied
upon, they say, as tlie press and peo
ple of Spain do not hesitate to circu
late statements inimical to the inter
ests of this country.
Such of the dispatches reaching the
war department today from General
Otis that were made public were eon
fined to routine matters, while Secre
tary Long said tonight he had not n
word from Admiral Dewey during the
entire day. - General Otis has repeat
edly stated in bis dispatches to the
authorities here that he lias the situa
tion well in hand, and there is no rea-
son to believe lie would have trouble
in keeping order at Manila, where the
cream of bis troops are stationed.

Manila, Feb. 28. Last night the
rebels concentiated in such numbers
near the Chinese cemetery tiiat General
McArthur anticipated an attack and
asked for reinforcements. Two com
panies of the Twenty-third regulars
were sent to Calocan, and a battalion
of the Twentieth regulars to the ceme
tery, at about midnight, but the expect
ed attack was not made. The rebels,
after making a great noise with bogle
calls and yells of "viva independent
oia," and "muoho malo Americanos,"
and firing volleys, disappeared in the
It is believed their leaders are get-
ting desperate, and are attempting to
force the United States troops iO make
an attack, in the hope of breaking
through the American lines, but the
rebels are evidently unwilling to be
pacified when facing the Americans. -It
is just possible, however, that
they may be goaded into such a move
before more reinforcements arrive.
Kansas City, Feb. 28. The Times

Guatemala, in Central America. Ac
