Sundry Civil Bill Car
Funds for the St. Louis
k. Memorial Bridge Between the City
of WaHhiacton and Arlington
Cemetery Provided For.
WASHINGTON, May 31 At the
conclusion of the session, lasting eight
hours, the Senate this evening passed
the sundry civil appropriation bill,
which has been under considerataon
for nearly a week.. An amendment,
providing for the . appropriation of
$5,000,000 for the Louisiana purchase
exposition to' be. field in St. Louis, in
1903. was continued in the bill. An
effort was made to reduce the amount
to be appropriated.' but it was unsuc
cessful. The amendnunt was incor
porated, providing for thw beginning
of work on the Memorial bridge, be
tween Washington and Arlington cem
etery, to be erected in memory of the
dead of both the Union and Confeder
ate armies. tWhile the bill carries only
$xcjmq for the project, it is expected,
ultimately, to cot about $5,000,000.
An amendment was also added to the
measure, providing for the adjustment
of certain claims of the states of New
York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Dela
ware. California, Oregon and South
Carolina. The passage of the sundry
civil bill leaves only two general ap
propriation bills to be acted upon by
the Senate the Military Academy, and
the general oehciency measures. It is
expected they will, be pased by Satur
THE CLARK CASE.
Washington, May 31. The Senate
committee on privileges and elections
have reached an agreement with the
friends of Senator Clark, of Montana.
to allow the Senator's case to rest
where it is. with the understanding
that no further steps shall.be taken to
have either Clark's or Maginnis' cre
dentials refe-rcd to the committee, and
that no further action shall be taken
on the resolution of the committee con
cerning Senator Clark's election.
FOR AN AMENDMENT.
Washington. May 3t. The IIou?e.
today, under a special order, adopted.
after an exceedingly hot debate, in
which the leaders on Doth sides charged
each other in playing to the political
galleries, entered upon the consideration
of the resolution reported from the ju
diciary committee, proposing a con
stitutional amendment, to lodge in
Congress the power to "define, regu
late, control, prohibit or dissolve trusts.
monopolies or combinations. Under
lb terms of the order today, "with a
night session tonight, was devoted to
debate, and tomorrow at 5 o'clock the
vote is to be taken without an oppor
tunity to amend. .
. Saturday is to be devoted to the bill
to amend the Sherman anti-trust law.
The Democrats charged that the pro-
posctt constitutional amendment was
ohjcctionanie in every way so tnat it
was a mere political pretext, that it was
unnecessary and was proposed at the
end of the session .for election pur
pose in the coming campaign. The
Kepubhcans repudiate the charge 01
bad faith. The constitutional amend
ment requires a two-thirds 'vote to
adopt it, or tyfr votes, with the present
membership of the House. The Re
publicans have only ibo votes, tiity less
than the requisite two-thirds.

Statesman: TliC; work of the great
Conference; will end tomorrow at 2:30
p. m. The final action on the
amusement section) was taken This
morning, which leaves the law of the
church as it was. The debate on Sat
urday brought on the w.ldest scene
ever witnessed on the floor 0 a Gen
eral Conference. The trouble is, In so
large a body of men. there are those
who have a very low sen.e of what is.
proper, and feel inclined to treat seri
ous questions with a di-gree of levity,
not tolerated by the majority. J It was
feared that the report of the commit
tee would povoke a Witer debate, out
an adjustment of widely diffeting opin
ions, in relation to Mr. AlcKinley's re
sponsibility in setting aside tine Anti
Canteen bill, was wisely adjusted, and
a storm was prevented: The minority
report, which was the -same as the ma
jority report except in its references to
Mie I'rcswwrnt, was nnaiiy aiMJjmu. jvir.
Dickey, chairman of- the committee,
was wise in his management of the
whole .matter, and though standing
resilutely jfor the; majority report, was
nuxlerate and manly in closing the de
bate. Gemral Odell. Givernor Shaw,
of Iowa, jand . Judge Yates, ; recently
nominated by the Republicans of Illi
nois for (.Governor, each attempted
amendments calculated to modify the
present and- past utterances or me
church on; the entire question of tem
perance. But there was no distKisitinn
upon the ! pirt of the Conference to
submit to any modification, hence aH
of -the projKised amendments were
voted down with no uncertain voice.
I believe, I am wkhin the' Ixiund of
rhc facts in the case -when I -say, from
the actions and utterances of the Gen
eral Conference of 1900. the Metiliodist
Episcopal church has enlisted in a war-,
fare against licensed rum, which Is to
be continued until the evil .is driven
from every foot of soil over which "Old
Glory" floats. The only difference ex
isting, is a difference as to the best
methd of carrying forward the fight.
All differences in this matter will in
time be adjusted, and the victory wilt
be complete. -i J 1
