Hoqhg of Keprencntalives.
WASHINGTON. June 22.?Opponents
of the annexation of Hawaii again oc?
cupied tiie intention of the Senate to?
day. Air. White of California, resuni? d
his speech begun yesterday, _but aftet
speaking two hours yielded the lloor to
Mr. Pettigrew, of South Dakota, who
discusse<i the resolutions for an hour
and a half. Mr. White has nut eon
eluded his speech, Mr. Pettigrew tak?
ing up the argument against the res?
olutions merely to afford him an oppor?
tunity to rest.
The conference report on the Indian
appropriation hill was presented to the
Senate and read, but no effort was
made to dispose of it. It was sharply
criticized, however, and the Indications
are that its adoption will be contested
because of the elimination of the Sen?
ate free homestead amendment and tl e
acknowledgment of the right, in cer?
tain circumstances and conditions, of
Indians to lease mineral lands.
A joint resolution was passed author?
izing the?Pri'sident of the United .'-tat 3
to invite, through the proper channels,
the governments of England. Prance.
Germany, Austria. Russia, Belgium.
Switzerland, Mexico and Venezuela to
send details of infantry, artillery and
cavalry to this country to participate
in a military jubilee to be held in Mad?
ison Square Garden, New York, by the
trustees of the Red Cross Society of
New York. The jubilee is to be held
during the two weeks beginning De?
cember 26. 1S9S.
Mr. Davis, of Minnesota, chairman of
the committee on foreign relations, ask?
ed immediate consideration of the fol?
That the secretary of the navy Is di?
rected to inform the Senate whether
Lieutenant i-Iobsun and those who were
captured with him have been or are
confined by the Spanish authorities
within the line of lire or under the fire
of the United Stales fleet; and. If so.
at what place or places they are or
have been so confined: also to inform
the Senate what efforts have been
made to effect the exchange of such
prisoners and with what results; also
to transmit to the Senate copies of the
correspondence or report upon the sub?
jects of this inquiry.
The resolution was agreed to.
At 4:45 I?. M. the Senat?; went inlo

HOITSR OF REPRESENTATIVES.
WASHINGTON. June 22.?Today's
session of the House was uneventful
with the exception of a brief, but se?
vere denunciation by Mr. Simpson
(Populist), of Kansas, of Representa?
tive Grosvenur's speech at the Ohio
State Republican Convention. The crit?
icised portion was relative to alleged
failure of the Democrats and Populists
to vote for appropriation bills succeed?
ing the precipitation of .the war and
the originnl appropriation of $50,0(10,000
for the national defense. _
A bill Incorporating the National
Congress of Mothers was passed. It
was called up by Mr. Linney (Republi?
can), of North Carolina, and after, be?
ing read Mr. Moody (Republican), of
Massachusetts, created a laugh by
feigning ignorance of its provisions and
asking Mr. I.lnney if there was any?
thing contemplated by the bill or or?
ganization kindred to the artificial
hatching of chickens.
Mr. Linney assured him there was
nothing of the kind in the bill.
Several private bills were passed and
then the House went Into committee of
the whole to consider District of Col?
umbia legislation, and. at 2:12 P. M.

"The plant which is to be erected bv
the company will have a capacity of

for the erection of a wire rod mill near

M. Depew has partly recanted hhs ot>

Requested by the correspondent o;
the Associated Press to summarize hit
views of French and English opinion
on war questions. Dr. Depew said:
"The sentiment in Frunce is about
what it would be in the United Stute?
If England and France were fighting
and every paper In the Uniled State?

nouncing the injustice or their going to

that England was poor and was thn

actuated by nothing but a pure brut*
desire to steal England's property.
"That's what all the papers but three
are doing in France. When we also
consider that France and Spain are
both of the Latin race and of the satni
religion, and that Frenchmen have
I hundreds of millions invested in Spain,
we need not be surprised that the feel

When the talk turned on Rngland,
the interviewer suggested that the
sympathies of the British aristocracy
were largely with the Spanish. Dr. De?
pew said he had not found them so.
"I have met many of them during my

enthusiastically with us. The women
are all with us. That is the best test.
