The biscuit company, better known as the

The Chinese exclusion bill was then
taken up, and the presiding officer put the
question on the adoption of the substitute
reported by the committee on foreign re
lations. Mr. Sherman gave the only
aflirmative vote, and, tbere being no vote
iu the negative, the presiding officer de
clared the substituee adopted. Immedi
ately Mr. Mitchell (who had the floor to
speak against the substitute) came into
the chamber. The presiding officer was
proceeding to put the question again,
when Mr. Butler said that he understood
that the substitute had been Adopted. The
presiding officer admitted that ho had so
decided, but said that he would put the
"The senator from Ohio." said Mr. But
ler, "was unanimous." Laughter.
"While the chair did so decide." said the
presiding officer, "the chair will count it
as no vote."
Mr. Mitchell, instead of proceeding with
his own argument against the substitute,
yielded the floor to Mr. Squire, who spoke
m favor of the house bill, or of some other
vigorous measure to enforce the exclusion
Mr. Mitchell next argued against the
The discussion was continued until 4
o'clock, when a vote was taken on the
substitute reported from the committee on
foreign relations for the house bill. The
substitute was agreed to yeas,43; nays,14.
Messrs. Cockrell and Vest of Missouri
and Peffer and Perkins of Kansas voted
with the yeas.
Mr. Piatt moved to amend the substi
stute, so as to exclude from the anti
Chinese laws to be extended for ten years
the Scott exclusion act of 18SS. and made a
brief argument iu support of the amend
ment. Mr. Sherman said that ho was not in
clined to vote for the amendment, al
though, he declared, the Scott law was one
of the most vicious laws that had been
passed since he bad been in congress. Its
passage, he said, was the result of a mere
race between the two political parties to
try and influence the vote of the Pacific
coast in the last presidential election.
Mr. Piatt's amendment was rejected 8
Mr. Chandler offered an amendment in
creasing the penalty for the unlawful
coming of Chinese laborers. Rejected,

Tho bill, as amended, was then passed
without division. The title was amended
so as to read: "To prohibit the coming of

by federal officials. Tb- reo4nteo under
vrhlcb tils committee ia proceeding recite
in the preamble that Theodore Roosevelt,
civil service commissioner, in May, 1S91,
reported to the civil service commission
that a number of federal officeholders iu
Baltimore took an active part iu a primary
election there and spent money for politi
cal expenses, and. as they admitted, vio
lated the United States civil service stat
utes, tbe punishmintof which is dismissal
from office and imprisonment: that the
commission, upon Mr. Roosevelt's find
ings, recommended to the president the
dismissal of the cuilty officials, and that
the CivilService;ReformI issocintion of Bal
timore called attention to the fact that no
official action had been taken in conse
quence. Therefore, the committee was
directed to ascertain whether any of the
guilty officials are in office, and whether
they have been indicted or prosecuted.
Postmaster General Wauamaker was tbe
first witness. Cnairman Andrew stated
that twenty-one of the officials violating
the law were in the Baltimore postoffice.
He asked if any of these persons were still
in office or had been indicted.
The postmaster general replied that all
were still in the employ of the government
and that none had been indicted. Hp said
that the postmaster asserted that injustice
had been done the employes in Mr. Roose
velt's report. The witness thereupon or
dered an investigation by postoffice in
spectors, who reported that, m their
opinion, the facts did notjustiiy tne uis
missal of the employes or any one of them
for violation of the civil service laws, as
charged. The employes in the case, said
the witness, were poor men soldiers and
the sons of soldiers and the amount of
their contributions was not much larger
than the sum that would be required to
pay for printing tho report of the civil

asked if there was any law authorizing an
investigation by inspectors.
The postmaster general was unabla to
point to any such law, but ex
plained the precedents aud functions of
the inspectors. Iu this case Postmaster
Johnson had been reprimanded.
Mr. Andrew wished to know why the
postmaster had been reprimanded.
The witness replied: "For allowing his
men to be in the position of making state
ments that could be excepted to. If these
men gave an impressiou to the civil ser
vice commissioners that could not be veri
fied under oath, that makes trouble for
To Mr. Boatner the postmaster general
said that if the men were engaged in as
sessing each other, or in coercing votes,
these actions were certainly violations of
law. but tho men denied that they had
Mr. Boatner asked of what xise was the
civil service commission if the heads of
departments had authority to go behind
the commissioner's report and direct an
investigation on their own account.
Tbe postmaster general replied that this
was the first intimation given to him that
the civil service commission had control of
a department independent of its head, and
could step in and order dismissals at its
own sweet will.
Mr. Andrew asked the postmaster gen
eral if an employe who made one state
ment in April and another at a subsequent
time, contradicting absolutely his former
statement, ought to be retained.
Wr. Wanamaker said that he did not
think that any untruthful person ought to
bo employed, but he called attention to the
fact that nineteen meu contended that
they did not say the words attributed to
them. Mr. Wanamaker admitted that he
had not read all of the inspectors' report.
SUPREME COURT DECISIONS.
Washington, April 23. The United
States supreme court today held that
there was" no penalty imposed by the
oleomargarine act upon dealers who ro
fused or neglected to keep books and
make the monthly returns of receipts and
sales of oleomargarine required by tho ieg
ulatious issued under the provisions of
the act by the commissioner of internal
revenue. The court says that a matter
cannot be made a legal offense by a regu
lation of a department. If conress had
intended to make liable to a penalty deal
ers who failed to keep the required books
it should have doue so by direct enact
ment. Washington, April (25. Chief Justice
Fuller today rendered opinions in the
United States supreme court in two more
cases in the long list of litigations arising
out of the insolvency of the Wabush rail
road company. The first case was brought
by the Qaiucy (Missouri) and Pacific rail
road company agniust the Wabash re
ceivers. When the Wntoash became insol
vent the r.ilrond company surrendered its
property into the custody of the court and
receivers were appointed, with directions
to pay the rentals which had accrued, or
which might accrue. The receivers report
ed that, among others, the earnings of tbo
Quincy company had not (while others
had) since their acquisition been sufficient
to pay the operating expenses, cost of
maintenance aud interest. The Quincy
company's road was leased to the W abash
system. The court directed the payment
of interest on the paying branches, but
that the earnings of the paying branches
should not be used to pay interest or
rentals on tbe non-earning branches. The
Quincy company petitioned for and obtain
ed possession of its road, and afterward
brought the present suit, praying the court
to allow tho company rentals, claims for
repairs and taxes paid from tbe funds of
the Wabash company, and for tbe Quincy
company preferential rights.
The court, in an opinion by Chief Justice
Fuller, affirms the decree of tho circuit
court of the United btates for the eastern
district of Missouri, denying the relief
sought. Ihe court made the same ordfir
iu a similar suit brought by the St.
Joseph and St. Lonis Railroad company
against the Wabash railroad receivers.
