Tho industrial department of tho

wielded by tho Civic Federation lies
as much in the mutual understand

New York, April 21. J. P. Morgan,
who is now abroad, has practically
consummated a plan to combine all
tho leading transatlantic steamship
lines. London dispatches to tho Asso
ciated priss announcing the combina
tion were confirmed at the Morgan
banking house. The companies to bo
consolidated will, it is understood, in
clude the American nnd Jtcri Star
lines, White Star line, Dominion line,
Atlantic Transport lino and the Ley
land lino. Probable additions to this
list arc the Cunard, Wilson and Holland-American
companies, and it is
understood that a "working agree
ment" will be reached with tho other
lending transatlantic companies.
Mr. Morgan has given tho matter
much of hi:t time since his arrival on
tho other side. It Is too early yet
to give the exact scope of the bchemc,
but as now outlined there will be an
American holding company into which
ull the steamship companies which
propose to enter the combination will
put their stock holdings "pool their
issues" In exactly the name way that
the various concerns embraced in tho
United States Steel corporation threw
in their holdings, receiving in return
stock of the main parent company.
Just what the capitalization of tho
compnny will be is not yet known
but the amount is likely to be well
in excess of $150,000,000. This phase
of tho project will depend entirely
upon tho number of steamships taken
into the combination.

Washington, April 19. Tho demo
crats and the republican insurgents
rode rough-shod over tho house lend
ers yesterday when the voting began
on the Cuban reciprocity bill. They
overthrew the ruling of tho chair in
committee of tho whole on tho ques
tion of the germaneness of an amend
ment to remove the differential from
refined sugar during tho existence
of the reciprocity agreement pro
vided for in tho bill. Tho vote to
overrule tho decision of tho chair,
made by Jtr. Sherman, of New York,
was 171 to 130, republicans to the
number of 37 joining with a solid
democratic vote to accomplish this
result. Having won this ireliminnry
victory, the amendment was adopted
in committee, 104 to 111, nnd later in
tho house by a still larger majority,
199 to 105. On this occasion 61 re
publicans voted with the democrats
for tho amendment. The bill then
was passed by nn overwhelming ma
jority, 217 to 52.
An analysis of the vote shows that
121 republicans and 123 democrats
voted for the amended bill nnd 42 re
publicans and ten democrats ngainst
it The voting on tho bill was tho
culmination of a long struggle which
began almost with the opening of
this session of congress and after two
weeks of continuous debate, during
which much bitterness was aroused.
Yesterday's debate was of an exceed
ingly lively character, the feature be
ing echoes of Thursday night's demo
cratic caucus. To that caucus tho
defeat of the republican leaders who
sought to pass tho bill without
amendment is attributable. Previous
to the holding of the caucus the dem
ocrats were very much divided and
the opposition of the republicnn beet
sugar men showed signs of disin
tegrating. The bill ns passed authorizes the
president, as soon us may bo after
the establishment of an independent
government in Cuba nnd the enact
ment by said government of immi
gration, exclusion and contract labor
laws as restrictive as those of tho
United States, to negotiate a recip
rocal trade agreement with Cuba
by which, in return for equivalent
concessions, the United States will
grant a reduction of 20 per cent, from
the Dinglcy rates on goods coming
into the United States from Cuba,
such agreement to continue until De
cember 1, 1903. During tho existence
of such agreement the duty on re
