The Original Package Bill
Causes a Stir.
The House Passes the Cliicamuuga
Military Hill and the River
and Harbor Kill.
Washington, May 28. Senator Sher
man from tho committee on foreign
affairs, reported an amendment to the
consular and diplomatic appropriation
bill, authorizing the President to carry
into effect the recommendations of the
international conference by tho appoint
ment of three commissioners to repre
sent the United States in the Inter
Colonial Railway commission. Also to
detail from the army and navy, otlicers
to serve us engineers under such com
mission. The Senate bill subjecting iniorted
liquors to the laws of several states was
then taken up. Faulkner expressed
himself in favor of doing something.
Of passing some bill that would relieve
the situation that now confronts congress.
In speaking of the regulation of the
liquor tratlic, he said he himself believed
as did the people of his State, that tho
high license system was tho true
method of dealing with the question.
He had given notice of an amendment
somewhat similar to the substitute
reported by the Judiciary com
mittee. He criticised tho sub
stitute, objecting, for instance,
to the use of tho word "prohibition,"
and suggested that the object could be
obtained by the use of tho word "re
qulation." Wilson, of Iowa, did not agree with
Faulkner and argued in favor of the
Pugh argued in favor of tho bill and
said its defeat would leavo tho states in
a mo-it serious predicament.
Mr. Call expressed sympathy with the
idea that tho States hail nbsolute con
trol of tho trallic in intoxicating liquor
and was willing to bo for almost any
bill which would attain that end.
Calla yielded the floor to Allison, who
presented the conference report on the
army appropriation bill. Ingalls in
quired what had been done in regard
to the Senate amendment prohib
iting the sale of liquor at canteens. Al
lison said the provision had leen modi
lied to read: "That no alcoholic liquors,
lwer or wine shall bo sold or supplied
enlisted men in any canteen or iost
trader's store in any State or Territory
in which the sale "of alcoholic liquors,
beer or wine is prohibited by
law." Replying to a question
by Iilair, AllNon f-nil, tho Senate con
ferees found it necessary to yield to the
House conferees in the matter.
There was quite a spirited debate on
this ioint. Iilair held that it is an en
tire surrender of the proposition. Alli
son said of course the provision applies
only to States and Territories wliero
prohibitory laws prevail. The House
conferees were unanimous in insisting
that the Senate provisions should not
remain in the bill. Paddock said it is
within bonds to state that nineteen
twentieths of the troops are stationed out
sido of the States and Territories where
prohibitory laws are enforced. Allison
said that the Senate conferees did tho
best they could in the matter. Iilair in
sisted that the language adopted is a
substantial surrender of the senate
prorito and that the annv canteen will
remain in substantially full force.
Ingalls said either the control of the
army so far as tho sale of intoxicating
liquor is concerned ought to be in
the United States or it ought not.
Congress ought either to say all sol
diers shall have the opportunity of get
ting drunk or it ought not. The propo
sition to leave the control of the ques
tion to the local legislation seems inde
fensible and so far as tho Senate is con
cerned it would bo more manly to relin
quish the whole thing absolutely rather
than to have it so mutilated.
Allison withdrew tho report and said
he would call it tomorrow.
The Honso fortification bill was re
ported with amendments and laid on
The conference report on tho bill for
a public building at Cedar Hapids, Iowa,
was agreed to.
Consideration of the liquor bill was
resumed. Pierce criticised tho argu
ments, of some of the Democratic Sena
tors, and made an argument in support
of the bill. Turpie said the Senate nad
under consideration no duty whatever
to perform on this subject. With
respect to tho shoddy, transparent and
gauzy essence, or imago of an essence,
that is called, "Moral Sentiment Behind
Prohibitory Legislations," ho did not
ltelieve we had denomination of coin
to measure its value. After further
debate the Senate adjourned.
Washington, May 28. Hon. Richard

The bill passed appropriating $125,000
for tho establishment of a national mili
tary park at tho battlefield of Chica
mauga. A conference was ordered on
the appropriation bill.
Tho House went into committee of
the whole on the river and harlwr bill.
The endiiig question was on the point
of order raised by McCreary against tho

order. On motion of Duiinel tho sec
tion declaring it shall not bo lawful to
construct bridges over any navigable
water-way pf tho United States within
the limits of a State without obtaining
tho approval of tho Secretary of War
was then stricken out. The conimitteo

Dockery moved to recommit the bill
with instructions to tho conimitteo on
rivers and harbors to report it back
with tho Hennepin cnnal clause
stricken out. Tho motion was lost.
Tho bill then passed without division,
after which tho house adjourned.

convention of railroad commissioners
was held hero to-day. Chairman Cooley,
of the Inter-state Commerce commission,
presiding. The report ol the committee
on legislation said that a lack of uni
formity in railway legislation is due first

want of harmony in the legislation of

mended that the main features of the
Inter-state Commerce law be made a part
of tho law of the different States and
that laws be enacted by Congress secur
ing uniformity in various details of
railroad equipment and management
with a view to the greater safety for
employes and the public.

Inter-state Commerce commission
showed that during the year ending
