DISTR ICT APPROPRIATIONS
The flgue Agd Upa bY the On
Previstem made fe. Raising the Dam
Comprem ises on Other
Late yesterday afteMoo Senator GOrman
presented the conferened report on the
District appropriation bill to the Senate.
It was not read at length In its unintel
ligibla formal shape, but, at the suggestion
of Senator Chandler, it was laid over until
teday for detailed explanation. As was
intimated in last evening's Star, the Sen
ate conferees agreed to the reinsertion of
the House item appropriating 125,000 for
the work of raising the dam at Great Falls.
In answer to a question from Mr. Aldrich.
Mr. Gorman said that the Senate ILad
agreed to the House provision, with the
addition that the dam, together with the
other improvements as to the water supply,
shal.l be under the proper officer, leaving
Gen. Casey as consulting engineer. The
provision making this appropriation as it
is r.ew agreed upon between the two houses
Is as follows:
"For raising the height of the dam at
Great Falls, together with the cost of such
other work as may be found necessary in
connection therewith, including the cost of
strengthening the conduit, and for dam
ages on account of flooding of land and
other damages, 125,000, for which amount
and purposes the available balance of the
appropriation for increasing the water sup
ply of the city of Washington shall be ap
plicable, subject. to all the provisions and
restrictions of the act to increase the water
supply of the city of Washington, and for
other purposes, approved July 15, 1882, and
of the act approved July 5, 1884, making
appropriations for the expenses of the gov
ernment of the' District of Columbia, as to
apportionment and settlement between the
United States and the District of Colum
bia, and the refunding thereof. And in the
execution of this work Gen. Thomas L.
Casey shall be asso::ated with the proper
officer in charge of the Washington aque
duct as consulting engineer.'
"For testing the tunnel conduit to deter
mine the amount of its leakage, $25,000, to
to taken from the appropriation 'for In
creasing the water supply of Washington.
D.C.,' to be immediately available.
"There shall be prepared, upon careful in
vestigaion by the proper officer of the gov
ernment having charge of the Washington
aqueduct and the water supply to the city
of Washington, a full and detailed report,
which shall be submitted to Congress on the
first Monday in December, 1895, upon the
feasibility and propriety of completing the
tunnel conduit as now projected; the com
pletion of the new reservoir, Including its
dam or any modifications to the same deem
ed necessary; and upon the results as to
the supply of water to the city when said
dam, the raising of the dam at the Great
Falls, the conduit, and reservoir are com
pleted. And if such officer and consulting
engineer shall conclude that it is imprac
ticable, or too expensive, to repair such
tunnel conduit, then they shall report some
plan for bringing 4ncreased water supply
from the reservoir in Georgetown to Wash
ington by pipes or otherwise.
"Each separate item of the report shall
be accompanied by a detailed estimate of
the cost of the work required and the neces
sary costs, not to exceed $10,000, connected
with the inquiry and reports, shall be de
frayed from the appropriation for 'increas
ing the water supply of Washington, D.C. '
Provided, That in the preparation of this
report Gen. Thomas L. Casey, United States
'Army, shall be associated with the proper
officer of the government in charge of the
aqueduct as consulting engineer, and his
signature shall be appended to said report
in said capacity, and said report shali "Iso
be accompanied with the judgment of the
chief of engineers, and made to the Secre
tary of War, who shall transmit the salne
to Congress with his views thereon."
Mr. Harris asked if the raising of the
dam Is made to depend upon any investi
gation or action of Colonel Elliot or Gen
Mr. Gorman answered that the appropria
tion is made directly and Is to be consum
mated without any further examination
so far as the dam is concerned, but an
examination is to be made in relation to
the abandoned tunnel.

DECLARED TAUBENECK A TRAITOR.
Resolutions Adopted by the National
Reform Press Associatiom.
At yesterday's convention of the Nation
al Reform Press Association a letter was
read from H. E. Taubeneck, the chairman
of the people's party national organia
tion, setting forth his views as to how the
party should be managed and threatening
that unless these are carried out he will
resign his present position.
The executive committee held a kong
session, in which a heated discussion of
President Taubeneck's letter was had. It
was plainly the sense of the majority that
Taubeneck's proposition was entirely in
Imnical to the interests of the people's
party, -and the following committee was
appointed to draft resolutions on the ques
tion: F. K. Burkett. Mississippi; Harry
Tracey, Texas; W. A. Hotchkiss, Minne
sota; Dr. S. MeMakin, Knsas, and J. P.
The committee soon 'reported a set of
resolutions, declaring it to be the sense
of the convention that any one who would
work for or suggest such divergent ideas
as manifested by Mr. Taubeneck was a
traitor to the cause and unworthy of the
party's support. The resolutions were
TO REIIABILITATE SILVER.
Resolution to De Introduced In Paz'
A meetirg of the British parliamentary
committee of the Bimetallic League last
night approved the bimetallic resolution
which Robert Lacey IEverett, representing
southwestern Suffolk, will move next Tues
day. The resolution is to the effect that
the house of commons regards with Increas
ing apprehension the constant fluctuations
and the growing divergence in the relative
value of gold and silver, and heartily con
curs In the recent expression on the part
of the government of France and the par
liament of Germany regarding the serious
evils resulting therefrom.
It therefore urges upon the government
of England the desirability of co-operat
ing with other nations In an International
conference to consider what measures can
be taken to rehabilitate silver, or mitigate
the evils which it is claimed arise from
the demonetizing of the white metal.
Death of Mr. Wolf's Mother,
The mother of Mr. Simon Wolf of this
city, Mrs. Amelia Wolf, died yesterday in
Philadelphia, at the age of eighty-five.
The funeral will take place tomorrow at
1547 North 6th street, Philadelphia, at the

M. S. Mayer. The lecture Mr. Wolf pro
posed giving tomorrow night at the Acad
emy of Music will be postponed one week.

The opening session of the Industrial Le
gion, an auxiliary of the populist party,
was held a~t Kansas City last evening.

mander-in-chlt of that organization, -de
