Washington, Dec. 18.—Congress lias heeded the petition of Portland, Or., for an appropriation foi transportation of supplies to the starving Klondikers. the bill which passed the house appro 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 service. Hawley asked for immediate consid eration of the resolution, and it was adopted. Secretary Alger, in anticipation of immediate action by congress, has be gun to prepare plans for carrying out the intent of the bill. To this end, 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 how supplies can be sent across the passes to Dawson.

Washington, Dec. 18.—The president today sent the following nominations to the senate: Joseph McKenna, to be associate justice of the supreme court of the United States; Charles G. Dawes, of Illinois, to be controller of the currency. The Day in Congreaa. Washington, Dec. 18.—In the senate today. Fritchard, chairman of the civil service investigating committee, de livered a brief speech upon the execu tion of the civil service law, as de veloped by his committee. Frye, of the committee on commerce, favorably reported and the senate passed a bill directing the secretary of the treasury to purchase or construct a suitable boat for the revenue service on the Yukon, to cost not to exceed $40,- 000. Cannon of Utah offered and had passed a resolution directing the secre tary of the treasury to furnish the sen ate information regarding filibustering off the coast of Florida. 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.
