priates $175,000, and the senate resolu­
tion $250,000. It will be necessary be­
fore either becomes a law, for congress
to got together on a common basis.
The house bill encountered practical­
ly no opposition. As passed, the sum
carried by it is to be expended under
the direction of the secretary of war
for the purchase, transporation and dis­
tribution of subsistence stores. It pro­
vides thaL these subsistence stores may
be sold at prices fixed by the secretary
of war, or donated where the people are
unable to pay for them. It empowers
him to purchase reindeer and employ
drivers not citizens of the United
States, and allows him to dispose of
the reindeer.
Represenative Cannon brought for­
ward the bill, and Sayers and Bailey
spoke in favor of it. Cannon submit­
ted to the house a statement prepared
by Dr. Sheldon Jackson, one of the
agents of the commissioner of educa­
tion, who was in the region as late as
September 15, that there would be no
suffering as far up the river as Fort
Yukon, but that the food supply on the
Upper Yukon would not last beyond
March, atxi he indorsed the recommen­
dation of the secretary of war that food
be sent in by reindeer via Dyea.
Cannon said:
“ Whether these miners are in Ameri­
can or British territory, whether they
are American or British subjects, if
they are starving, it does not become
the American congress to hesitate about
voting them relief.!’
The bill was passed without division,
although there were scattering noes
when the speaker called for the nega­
tive vote.
Secretary Alger was on the floor dur­
ing the debate.
Hawley, of the military affairs com­
mittee, reported to the senate the Mc­
Bride relief resolution. The committee
struck out all but the enacting clause,
and amended the resolution by appro­
priating $250,000, which is to be used
by the secretary of war for the purchase
of subsistence and supplies and for their
transporation and distnubtion, the con­
sent of the Canadian government first
to be obtained to pass over Canadian
territory. The resolution further pro­
vided that the supplies are to be dis­
tributed among the needy miners as the
secretary of war may determine, and
that the supplies are to be transported
by means of reindeer, the reindeer to
be sold after they have performed their

eration of the resolution, and it was
Secretary Alger, in anticipation of
immediate action by congress, has be­

this afternoon he sent a telegram to
General Merriam, commanding the de­
partment of the Columbia, at Van­
couver barracks, directing him to send
two or three competent officers of the
army to Dyea and vicinity to recoon-
noiter and report to the department

In the House.
In the house Hitt, chairman of the
committee on foreign affaire, secured
unanimous consent for the considera­
tion of the bill passed by the senate
yesterday to prohibit pelagic sealing
by citizens of the United States. He
explained its scope and purposes and
the necessity for its enactment.
Hopkins thought a time limit Bhould
be placed on the operation of the act,
so that in case negotiations with Great
Britain should collapse, our citizens
should not be at a disadvantage.
Johnson made a vigorous speech of
an hour in opposition to the bill. He
argued that the effect of this bill and
the negotiations now being conducted
would be the bolstering up of two great
British industries, one in Behring sea
and the other in London. The present
herd was not worth protecting. The
purpose was to build up a new herd.
