Conferees finally Agreed on tbe Naval Appropriation CM In the V House the Members Closed With Songs and' General Rejoicing. WASHINGTON, June --Congress adjourned sine die at 5 o'clock this af ternoon. For the Senate it was a day of waiting. The naval appropriation, bill a stumbline block to final ad journment could not be agreed to by theTConferees of the two houses and the disagreement was reported to the Sen ate early in the day. At t o clock, atter several recesses had been taken, it bacaiue known to the Senate that the House had con curred in the Senate amendment re maining in controversy, and soon after ward tli e House resolution, providing for ifir.al adjournment, was passed. The concluding hour of the Senate -was pure ly a social session-. IN THE HOUSE. ; Washington. June 7. In marked contrast with; the exciting incidents at- tending the bitter struggles of the elos ina hours of the session. Speaker Hen derson laid down his gavel at 5 o'clock trus Afternoon, at the conclusion of one cf the most picturesque scenes which has ever occurred in the Hall of Repre sentatives. Party passion and personat rancor, which have brought the house to the brink of actual riots, at times, dur ing last 48 hours, gave way at the clos ing half hour to good fellowship, which ended in a partiotic outburst that stir red the crowded galleries to the . highest pitch of enthusiasm. During the brief recess, taken within so minutes' of the time ifixed fr final adjournment to Rive the President -an opportunity to afhx -his signature to the bills that were being rushed to him for approval, a group of members, led by Mercer, Ball. Fitzgerald and Tawey, congregated in the area to the left of the Speaker s rostrum and began : singing patriotic airs. The galleries were bank ed to the doors. "Columbia, Gem of the Ocaen," "Auld lng Syne," "The Red. White and d33ue," -successively rang out. As the Ringing proceeded other members joined the group until, without regard to age or party, the en tire membership of the 'House joined in the choruses. The spectators in the iralleries ap plauded each song until the straps of Dixie" ftilea the hall. Then their un bounded enthusiasm broke out in Wild cheers. But , the enthusiasm "Dixie" evoked was not to lc compared with the remarkable demonstration which follow ed, when, in a' clear and ringing tenor. Fitzgerald.

LENTZ AN OBSTRUCTIONIST. Washington. June 7. Durincr the closing hours of t! House, Lent; 'got in another word about the Cocur d'Alenc testimony, which drew from lacey,- Kepublican of Iowa, a shot to the effect that the minority view of the Coeur d'Aletre trouble had not been sustained in Idaho yesterday, where the Democrats, had endorsed Governor Stcuncn berg's action. , I uo not believe 'it; Lentz replied. At any rate, he was- not endorsed in Shoshone. county where all the facts are known." Ovcrstrect, Republican of ; Indiana, attempted to bait Lentz with a resolu tion to gtve the condemned cannon to the Sons of Veterans, but Lentz, with the remark that $h Sons of Veterans wouki like to read the story of how their fathers were confined in the "bull pen" at Wardrver, said he would not object, and tbe resolution was adopted, Dayton moved that the House recede and concirr in- the Senate amendment to the naval bill, continuing, the six years course for cadets, but providing that a cadet at Annapolis, front each Congressional district, should be ap--pointed every four years. The motion was agreed to: This action removed the Ust stumbling block, and finally passed the naral appropriation bi'.l. t Lentz-- made frequent interruptions, and at one time managed to get in with a partial statement: In. answer, to Lacer. I hare a telegram from Coeur d'Alcne county, saying: 'Governor Steunenberji cut a watermelon today but' ". A sharp rapping of the gavel cut Ltntz oft. Tbe principal feature of the closing day in the House -was the reversal of its action, last night, in turning down the cbnferecs on the Naval bill, for yielding one item pertaining to ocean surrey. Over night th4 sentiment of the Houe underwent' a complete change, and today the members voted, by a large majority, to accept outright the Senate -amendment,, which goes much further tban the compromise which the conferee offered last night. The new conferees, led t by Cannon, who had trrought in a' compromise which they considered more satisfac SECTION EIGHT PAGES tory, were igmiminbusly pushed aside. It was a distinct victory for "the first conferees. Foss. Dayton and Cum mings. Thcother feature of the clos ing day was the course of Lentz, Dem ocrat of Ohio, in blocking unanimous " consent legislation For three days he objected to bills because the . ma-1 jority would not allow the testimony In the Cocur d'Alcne investigation to be printed, and he maintained his po rtion to the end. . - . BATTLE WITH D0XERS. CHINESE TROOPS ENGAGE A REKELi BAND. British Marines, with a Machine Gun, to. Force the; Road to the Chinese .Capital. LONDON. June f, special dis patch from Sluitighai, dated 7:jto'f- m. today, says: -The 'Dowager "Empress has ordered General Neili St . Chong. with .3000 men, to protect the railroad at Peking. A severe fight has occurred with the" "Boxers,' whose ranks in clude many soldiers from the other general commands.: When- the battle ended, 200 dead were left, on the field. The 'dispatch goes on to say: "One hundred and eighty British atrarincs, with a machine gun, are alout to force the passage from Tien Tsin to Peking. Altogether, about Qew British have been landed from the Heel, a greater number than have landed from the conibinct vessels of the otlicr powers. This evi dence of Great Britain's intention to assert her position strongly gives great satisfaction here." ! - . ' WHO THE "BOXERS" ARE. Such confusion as exists as to pre. cisely who and what the Chinese ''Box ers are is probabiy due to the rapidity and frequency with 'which the nitivc seeret Societivs-of China 'change their names when they desire to continue their organization andl purposes free from the survtiJlatice ot the govern ment. When at last an edict oi sup pression is isncd . the society imly takes a new title (and goes oiias if nothing had happened." . ; The society of Boxers is supposed to number eleven millions of nun. It wat originally a sort of 'law and or!t-r league, organized for protection anainjt the baivJits with which the province of Shan-img was infested. Its tianie was then Ta Tan llwcl, whkh mean "The Society of the Great Sword." It is a law and order, league gone wrong. As this society became 11101c powtTfut many dishonest and designing persons entered . it, and in ni!tin;crrii cases directed its: efforts agairwt per sonal enemies whom they - represented; to be bandits and lawless person'.' Some of these victims, looking Jor lu.tp from the persecutions of the Great Sword Society,' turned to the Christian missionaries, , especially, it is said . the German Catholics. They profesrd conversion and the missionaries sought to protect them. , - A scries of ' outrages on Christians followed until, in last October, the Christian nations forced the govern ment to send a force against the Great Swords. There was a battle, followed by the report of the Governor of Shan Tung that the so-called rebel were honest country folk. : Then the Great Sword Society disap peared, by edict, and in its place sprang ready-made the "Universal Society of Boxers," with the old organization and purposes and with the added nlca of fighting all iorcign influence -miscion-ary or othcrwtse--and of having the government help it. The operation of the society and the outrages tommitted by it have since continued, and have constantly become bolder. : The Chinese name for the fociety i I-Ho-Tuon. the I meaning righteous ness, the .Ho standing for peace and Tuon meaning fist. vAs to the increased influence of Rus sia at Pckin tlic professor explains it by pointing e.ut that Russia declined to join the other powers in making repre sentations to the Pekin government with respect to the Boxer movement, basing her Tcfuial upon-the fact that she is an Asiatic; power.
