London, May 3. May D.ty Has come

with eaual force to the day in England.

Hymn," with wonderful enthusiasm. No
troops were visible throughout the day.

manifested today when Mr. Bryan moved
the passage of the free binding twine bill.
Though, under the rules, but half an hour
was permitted for debate, it was only
after a good deal of skirmishing that a
sufficient number of members could b
mustered to occupy that brief space of
time. The Democrats were not en:husi
nstic and tho Republicans wero apathetic.
No iuterest was taken in the vote. After
a brief wait the Democrats managed to
secure a quorum, and a motion to suspend
the rules and pass the bill wns agreed to

York, Colburu of Wisconsin and Cadmus

(Republicans) in the affirmative.
On motion of Mr. Blouuc the rules were

WASHINGTON", May 2. Numerous peti
tions were presented against legislation
for the closing of the world's fair on Sun
day. In presenting a petition for legislation
for the closing of the world's fair on Sun
day. Mr. Vest described it as a "machine
petition." It had beeu periodically, he
said, addressed to the senators, and it con
tained a remarkable resolution, pledgint;
the signers to refuse henceforth to support
for any office or position of trust any sena
toror member who should vote for further
aid of any kind for the world's fair, except
on the conditions named in the memorial.
Whetever might be his vote, he said, on
the question, he certainly should pay no
attention to that sort ot resolutions. As
to the closing of the fair on Sunday, that
question was before a committee, of which
he was a member, and was being consider
ed very carefully. A much more serious
question, however, was an to the expendi
tures. The speaker then criticised what
he called the reckless expenditure of
money by the exposition mauagers.
The calendar was then taken up.
Among tho bills passed wns one fixing
the price of lands entered under the
desert Und laws at IL25 per acre.
After an executive session the benatc ad
journed. THE CIVIL SERVICE INQUIRY.
Washington. May 2. The house com
mittee on civil service reform today re
sumed the investigation into the conduct
of certain employes iu the civil service in
Secretary Foster was tho first witness.
He bad beard of the cnarge made by Com
missioner Roosevelt agaiu.it two men con
nected with the customs service in Balti
more. The charge was collecting money
for political purposes. They had been
reprimanded by the commissioner. He
was inclined to think this punishment
sufficient but finally said that he should
very much doubt if it was consistent with
the good of the public service to keep such
man in office, and he should want to know
all the facts before taking action.
Commissioner Roosevelt was then ex
amined. He said that he bad made an ex
amination of the workings of the Balti
more postoffice and custom house and had
recommended the removal of twenty-one
employes lor violation of the civil servlc
law, but no action was taken. He sal J
that it was absolutely impossible to upset
his conclusions; for they were based on
the confessions of the accused persons,
made at the very time the events took
place. Bearing on the statement of the
postmaster general that it Li not the duty
of the commission to make any report to
the head of the department, Mr. Roose
velt produced two letters from Mr. Wana
maker, asking the commission to make a
just examination and to report to him.
Mr. Roosevelt quoted from th testimony
of Mr. Wacamaker when, in speaking of
the accused men, be said: "When they
declare to the postoffice Inspector that they
have not made such statement, and when
they do that under oath, you are bound to
take their statement"."
"It seems to me," said Mr. RooKvelt.
"that It in a private business an investi
gation into one ot its branches should dU
clcso that twenty-one men were cheating
the men being canght redbanded acd
confessing their guilt it woold ls very
unwiw to accept the oaths of these ume
men six months Iatr that they were in
correct, and that they bad lied when they
made their confession."
Mr. Roosevelt concluded hU statement
by saying; "Th amount of it is that
all tbee men are plainly guilty, npoa their
own confcMion; that they made this con
fession in terms wjjjch it in impossible to
misunderstand and a. equally lmpoibls
to retrnct; that nothing iLrj hare aid
since, or can say iu the future, can in any
way explain away this confession, and
their utjuet conduct, as implied In tb
report of the pottoffice tnpector, aimply
shown that tney are not entitled to a par
ticle of grace or consideration, Tfii U not
the time to consider whether the law is
wie or cot. 1; is on the statute book and
I am appointed to ee that it Is enforced;
and I have simply done my duty in point
ing out its violation and is recommending

on salt from the Kansas fields to various
points in favor of the salt fields of Michi
gan. It is held that any advantage which inures
to the Michigan salt manufacturers from
the rates to points in Iowa. Illinois, Mis
souri and Nebraska are advantages aris
ing from natural situations, and that the
low rates to Missouri river points are in
fluenced by conditions which are beyond
the defendants' control, and which existed
before Kansas salt was discovered. As to
thesa rates, the complaints are dismissed
It is held, tnrther, that the rates on salt
to points south and southwest of Hutchin
son. Kan., and St. Louis do constitute an
undue preference in favor of Michigan as
against Kansas salt, and that they should
be readjusted by the Santa Fe system, and
that, while observing the law as to louj;
and short hauls, the advantage of distance
belonging to the Kansas salt fields shall be
given to them in any territory supplied by
the mines which lie as near or nearer tb
Hutchinson than to St, Louis.
THE ANTI-CHINESE BILL.
Washington. May i The conferees on
the Chinese exclusion bill have reached an
agreement on the basis of the bill passed
by the scuate, with certain important ad
ditions that were insisted upon by the
house conferees. As agreed upon the biil
is practically a re-nactment for ten years
of the existing law; with the following;
additional provisions: No Chinese pei
son is to be released on bail pending ac
tion on a writ of habeas corpus; all Chi
nese laborers now in the Unitd States are
compelled to obtain registration certifi
cates, and all other persons other than la
borers may apply for such certificates,
for which no cnarge is to be made. This
feature of the law is to be carried out
under the direction of the internal reve
nue bureau of the treasury department.
Mr. Sherman and Representative Hitt
did not sigu the conference report, but it
is understood that they agreed not to
make any fight against it.
