In the House, tlio report of the Committee
on Itivcrs and Harbors, recommending the pas
eago of tlio bill over tlio President's veto, was
read. The objections of tbo Picsidcnt were
reviewed in detail. All but 27 of the 417 pro
jects in tbo bill, tlio report bays, wore contained
in previous river aud harbor bills. It was also
claimed that most of tlio piojccts were con
tained in the bill of 1S90, upon which the lato
Gen. Casey submitted a report, sayiug that but
eight were of limited local benefit. It is also
stated that the bill waB prepared after careful
examination of the reports of Engineers. The
President alluded to " iniproviduiitly-planiied
projects," but the committee assort that provis
ion has been made for prosecuting works,
whore there seemed a doubt concerning thorn,
by modified projects all to be done under tbo
direction of tho Engineers. It is also claimed
that the President is indefinite in his language
in not specifying the objcctiouablo jcatures of
Replying to the assertion of the President
that there are appropriations for works which
private parlies have actually agreed to do, tho
committee says that the information upon
which tho President bases his objection is
wholly without foundation. As to the cash ap
propriation of $14,000,000, the committee says
that this is to bespread over twoyenrsand not
expended in one fiscal year. It is also asserted
that tho President places the amount under tho
contract svhtem about 2,000.000 higher than
the bill, and that instead ol $20,000,000 uelns
cxponded duiiug the year ending Juno 30,
1898, as assorted by tho President, the commit
tee says that in case all contracts authorized
were immediately entered into nnt-uioio than
$16,G12,873 could be expended in any one year.
The report nlso SHys the President is in error
in saying that there will be another appropria
tion for smaller schemes "not coveted in tho
Answering tho charges of extravagance, the
committee says that for the past six years tho
averiigo expenditure has been $1(5,700.000, and
estimates from tho present hill and the appro
priations for 1SDS and 1900 that tho average ex
penditure for tbo next sir years will bo $13,
100.000. The bill was passed by a vote of 220 to 60, a
wide margin over the necessary two-thirds.

that he had learned from ofl!cial sources tho

Craighill made no reply, but in response to a
telegraphic query answered that tho letter bad
been "referred to the Secretary of War for in

bad been given. "So that, for reasons best

bitterly, "it is considered htst not to go into

In tho Senate, tho conference report on the
Naval appropriatiop bill was takcn up in an
ticipation of a vote on Mr. Quay's motion that
the Senate recede from its amendment reduc
ing tho number of now battleships from four to
two. Mr. Gorman said two questions wero in
volved one, whether it was wise to order four
battleships when defects in thoso already or

in session considering improvements in con
struction. The other question was as to tho ex

alterably opposed to building four ships, con
sidering tho condition of tho Treasury and tho
improvements being made in naval construc
tion" Tho Senator spoko of tho charges made In tho
Senate by Mr. Chandler, Mr. Tillman ana
others, that tho armor manufacturers wero
"robbitig the Government unmercifully." If
this charge was true, tho officers of the Govern
ment wero derelict in their duty in not report
ing tho fact to Congress, and the work of ship
building should bo stonncd. Mr. Gorman did
not believe any investigation had shown that
Secretary Whitney or Secretary Tracy, two
groat Secretaries of tho Navy, who contracted
with tho Carnegio and Bethlehom works, had
made improvident agreements. The Senator
considered tho contracts wiso and beneficial.
Today the United States stood ahead of tho
world in its product of armor, tho speed of
ships and perfection of naval machinery.
Mr. Chnndler asserted that information be
fore the Uawtl Committee showed that the
cost of production of urmor-plato at tho Car
negie and Bethlehem works was less than $300
a ton, aud that by a combination the price
charged tho Government was $530 aud $G00 a
Mr. Quay's motion to recede from the battle
ship reduction amendment was defeated.
Tho items of ships and armor were commit

A partial conference report on the Indian
appropriation bill was agreed to. Mr. Potti
grew (S. IX, R.) in chargo of tho Indian bill,
then sought to have tho remaining items of

Tho voto was thon taken on tho majority

Fiuday, June 5.
In tho Senate, Mr. Morgan Ala., D.) asked
for action on his resolution requesting tho
President for information as to the capture of
the loiupclitor by u Spanibh warship anil the
condemnation to death of United Slates citi
zens - whether any demand has been made for
the release of tho United Slates citizens. Mr.
Morgan read the statutes requiring tho Presi
dent to make a demand for tho release of an
American citizen. Ho arnucd that it was tho
duty of tho President, under the Constitution,
to levep Congress advised on the state of tho
Union, and in particular on foreign affairs.
Mr. Morgan said he had great respect for
the offico of President; it was an American
characteristic to be proud of their Government.
But this as a Government of law. not of pri
vate will. ThcSenato had requested in forma
tion of the President, and he had replied that
it was incompatible with the public interest,
although section 2001 of tho statutes provided
when a demand was made for the release of an
American cilizeu ''that alt the facts relative
thereto shall, as soon as practicable, bo com
municated by tho President to Congress."
The resolution wetit to the calendar.
In the House, Mr. Grosvenor (Ohio. R.) called
up his resolution requesting the President aud
tho several Cabinet crilicera for a detailed state
ment of the removals from office since March 3,
3 893, and the appointments since that date, to
gether with tho number of ex-soldiers who have
been appointed, promoted, reduced or removed.
Mr. Grosvenor demanded the previous question
and refused toyield to Mr. Doekery (Miss., IX),
who wanted to offer an amendment to extend
the resolution so as to go back to March 3, 1SS9,
and tako in the last Administration, Mr.
Uockcry suggested that, unless his amendment
were adopted, the resolution might bu sus
pected of partisanship.
Mr. Grosvenor laughingly expressed his
amazement at such a suggestion. When the
previous question was demanded Mr. McMilliu
demanded the yeas and nays, aud tho resolu
tion was adopted.
The vote was thon taken on tho contested
election case of Martin vf. Lockhart, from the
Seventh North Carolina District, ending in tho
seating of Mr. Martin.
.Mr. Moody (Mass.. R.) then called up tho
contested election cibe of Rinaker vs. Downing,
fiom tho Sixteenth Illinois District.
Oniy three Republicans Messrs. EvjvnsfKv.),
Moody (M.ifs.) and Sherman (N. Y.) voted
with tbo Democrats. Mr. Rinaker was escorted
to the bar of the House by Mr. Cook (.111.),
where the oath was administered to him.
Saturday, June G.
In tho Senate, Mr. Allison (Iowa, R.) re
ported a partial agreement on tho Sundry
Civil bill. Ho explained that a number wero
still open, including thoso for new public
buildings at Salt Lake City, and at the Capi
tals of the new States, Idaho, Wyoming, aud
.Montana, ana additions for the public build'
iucs at Kansas Citv. Savannah, ami C&miloii
As to the last-named
cities, ho said, tho
buildings were wear completion, but work
could not go on unlets small additional appro
priations were madr. But the lloiibc con
ferees positively refused, said Mr. Allison, to
assent to any public building items.
Mr. Dubois made a vigorous plea for public
buildings at the new Capitals.
After further debate tho Senate conferees
wore instructed to insibt on all tho public
building items, tho yea and nay vote resulting
.i8 to 0. Similar action was taken as to the
Brussels' Exposition and other items.
Tho final conference report on the Indian
appropriation bill was agreed to. The item as
lo contract Indian schools is modified bv limit
iuc their time of continuance until July, 15U7,
iubtead of July 1, 1S93.
Mr. Hale presented a conference report on
tho Naval appropriation bill. Jt fixed tho
number of battleships at three, and $425 a ton
as the maximum price of armor.
Mr. Chandler cntiei ed the agreement. Ho
said tho third battleship would not bo ad
vanced a day by being authorized now instead
of next Winter. Two battleships a year wero
Mr. Jiawloy (Conn., R.) deplored Mr. Chand

After further debate tho conforenco roport
was agieed lo 21 to 22.
In tho House, the President's veto of tho
General Deficiency bill was aimlauded bv that
portion of the Houso which had opposed tho
French Spoliation claims, including many Re
publicans. Chairman Cannon gave notice that-
uc woum move lo pass, after a voto on the veto,
a bill precisely similar to tho one vetoed, with
the omission of the claims put on bv tho Sen
ate. Mr. Mahon (Pa., R.) spoke with great warmth.
"I want to put against tho geutlomau at the
other end of the avenue men like Calhoun
Clay, and Webster," he said. " and I prefer to
take their judgment on legal questions rather
than that of tho man who now occupies tho
Presidential chair. He had repudiated his own
party, bo has repudiated tho courts of tho
United states, and now he proposes to repudi
ate Congress. This is not a matter for tho
President to settle. If we propose to let him
dictate what bills are to bo passed, wo might as
well go home."
Mr. Gfrosvcuor (Ohio, E.) said tho President I
had "fulminatod rehashing of all the stale
Democratic arguments for repudiating theio
claims," and had deliberately misstated tho
facts, as there wero no insurance claims in tho
Tho President in a recent message. Mr. Gros
venor concluded, had said that patriotism in
this country was at a low ebb, but it would be
news to tho people of this country who woro
counting tho few remaining days that tho
President had in offico to know that thoy must
look to him for patriotism.
Mr. Evans (Ky., D.) and Mr. Wellington
(Md., R.) pleaded for tho Southern war claims,
aud tho latter incidetally said that he bad
heard that a Republican and Democratic mem
ber of the Appropriations Committee had as
sured tho President that if ho votocd tho bill
they would sco. that tho Houso passed such a
bill as ho wanted.
In roply Mr. Cannon said: "Tho Doficioncy
bill is dead as Julius Cesar. Wo aro all anx
ious to get away "
Ho was interrupted with cries of "No, no,"
and ho remarked : Well, then, stay, if you
want to." Ho explained that ho had prepared
tho new bill becauso thero was not timo for
tho committee to framo a new one, and had
omitted the Bowman act claims becauso they
could not bo put on a bill originating in tho
Houso under therulos, and should not, so long
as he had tho power to make a point of ordor.
The voto on tho passago of tho hill was:
Yeas 172, nays 43, a wido margin over tho
necessary two-thirds to pass a bill under sus
pension of the rules.
Tho conforenco report on tho Sundry Civil
appropriation bill was reported by Mr. Cannon
and sent back for further conference, tho
Houso rejecting motions to accept tho public
Tho compromise to end appropriations to
sectarian schools on July 1, 1897, inspired an
eloquent speech from Mr. Fitzgerald (Mass.,
IX). He asserted that millions had been spent
in building Indian schools on the understand
ing that they would receive Government aid.
Millions of tho property of tho Catholic Church
was to be destroyed without justice or fairness.
Mr. Cooncr (Wis.. K.X renlvinp. said: ''I
deny that this Government has any right to
tako my money to leach tho Catholic religion
to a Comanche, or the Methodist to a Modoc.
It is no part of tho duty of this Government
to teach an Indian that tho Popo is infallible."
Tho report was disagreed to 5S to G5 aud tho
bill sent back to conference
Monday, June 8.
In thoScnate, when tho new Deficiency bill,
framed to meet tho President's veto, had been
read, Mr. Harris (Tcnn., D.) offered au amend
ment covering claims under the Bowman act
which had been omitted in tho Houso bill, al
though there was no specific objection to them
in the veto message."
The Vice-President submitted to thoSonato
a point of oidor agaiiibt tho amendment, and
it was voted to bo out of order.
The Deficiency bill was then passed, as it
came from tho House.
Tho Immigration bill was taken up, and Mr.
Morgan (Ala., D.) spoko in support of his
amendment that tho restrictions of tho act
should uot apply to persons coming to this
country from Cuba. Ho said no country had
contributed a bettorclassof people to our popu
lation than Cuba. Its citizens, ho said, come
to escape tho persecutions of Spain, aud to livo
uudcr free institutions.
In tho House. Mr. Payne (N. V., R.) moved
tho passage, under suspension of tho rulc3, of
the bill to amend the laws lelatiug to American
seamen. He oxplaincd that the bill had been
framed by tho Committeo on Merchant Marino
and Fisheries after a thorough investigation of
the subject. Both tho shipping interests and
the Sailors' Association had been consulted.
Every vestige of imprisonment for violation of
the contract between the Master aud seaman
was.stricken out of existing law by tho bill. It
provided a new scale of rations, and inado many
other changes in existing law looking to iho
amelioration of tho condition of American sail
ors. Tho bill was passed without division.
A ter futthcr routine matters recess was
taken until Wednesday, when it is expected
Congress will adjourn.

Atthc close of tho war Capt. Bourko was ap

to the West Point Academy, from which ho

.Statement of a
A-Well-Known Man Whose Words Carry Weight
From the Evening
Tho average veteran, as 13 well known, is
wont to glow over war memories, and ho en
deavors, in his ardor, to doubly impress hi3
hearers with thrilling tale3 of the Rebellion.
This is as reasonable as it is natural, and
none but ho who has passed through shot
and shell realizes how narrow his escape
from the very jaws of death, for in the strife
nud smoko of battle little recks the soldier
whether tho hissing bullet sings his sudden
requiem or the chords of lifo are severed by
the sharp slcel. He, therefore, who has
passed with safety and honor tlirongh such
stirring scenes can rightly rejoice at his
record, while he may pardonably point to
tho fact of havinir proffered his life-blood to
preserve the integrity and unity of ouo of
tho noblest nations upon earth.
When, however, he reverts to incidents of
more recent occuncnco bespeaks in calmer
feeliug but none the less certain sound, and
when snch ulterances are born of personal
experience, then his words are assuredly en
titled to the deepest weight. Add to this
that the narrator is a native and life-long
rtsident, aud there certainly can he nothing
lacking iu point of credence or affirmation.
This is particularly applicable to the case of
George S. Pierce, thau whom there is no
belter known or more highly respected
citizen in Pawtttcket, li. I., and vicinity.
Sir. Pierce resides with his brother, Henry
A. Pierce, Ivq., ex-Aesiataut Paymaster of
the United States Senate, at No. 12 Mulberry
Street, Pawtuckct, and an interview was so
cheerfully accorded as to agreeably lessen
the task of the reporter.
" I was born here about fifty-two years
ago," began Mr. Pierce, "and have never
dwelt elsewhere, except temporarily, and
that was during the Civil War, when I
served in the First Rhode Island Cavalry
and in theEIetentli Rhode Island Regiment.

Times, ratclucket, R. I,
at the Rhode Island Hospital, and the opera
tion was most successful. About nine or
ten years ago I began to suffer somewhat
from urinary tronbles. I consulted physi
cian after physician, and resorted to kidney
remedies and various patent medicines, each
and all promising, a3 usual, a safe, sure and
speedy cure. It was all, however, of little
avail, and ray sufferings seemed to increase
with the intermittent attacks. Repeatedly
did I have to rest from active labor iu my
business as a beltmakcr, and after retaining
water for two and even three days at a time,
the only relief seemed to finally come
tlirongh the reactionary force of nature.
"Abont nine or ten months ago, while
suffering one of these painful attacks, I was
advised by a fellow-workman to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. He
recited lu'9 own symptoms, so identical to
mine, and of which be had been cured, and
I, with some misgivings, I confess, procured
a box of Pink Pills. At first I took but one,
later two, and have swallowed as many as
three at one dose. To be candid, I had not
finished the first box before I was greatly
relieved, and such a pleasing reality tan
best be appreciated by a patient snfferer.
f With the second and third boxes I continued
to improve,. until I was something like my
former self. Of course, I keep a box of Pink
Pills always at hand as a safeguard, but
have to take only a few, say once a fortnight
or three weeks, and then chiefly for the
appetite. I am probably five feet six inches
in height, weigh approximately 175 pounds,
and must confess am enjoying good health.
While leaving the public to judge as to
whether wonders have been worked in my
case, I must state that Pink Pills have done
me the most good of any medicinal prepara
tion that I have been able to obtain. Local
druggists have sent to my door the agents of
various patent remedies, of which I have
used bottles -upon bottles and boxes upon
boxes, but I could not honestly or honorably
say a word in their behalf. This testimonial,
however, I give cheerfully and voluntarily."

At 2 o'clock in tho afternoon the Hancock
statue was unvailed. Tho coremouies wero
much the same as at the Meade unvailing in
tho morning. Battery C fired a salute, Gen.
Gobin transferred tho statuo to tho State, and
Gov. Hastings received it. Tho oratiou was
delivered by Gen. Henry II. Bingham, the Con
gressman from Philadelphia, who was on Gen.
Hancock's Staff at Gettysburg.
Among the distinguished men present were
Maj.-Gen. Nelson A. Miles, commanding tho
United Stale3 Army; Brig.-Gan. John R.
Brooke, U. S. A.,who commands the Department
of tho Platte,; Col. Geo. Moade, the sou of Gen.
Meade; Lieut.-Col. William Brooke Rawlo,
and Maj. Edward Carpenter, of Philadelphia,
aud Col. Fiuloy Anderson, of New York, who
was on Hancock's staff. Gen. Daniel E. Sickles
was unablo to attend.
The Hancock statue stands on East Cemetery

gateway. The statue is 10 feet high, resting
