today made short work ot the Senate

motion made yesterday by Mr. Wheeler
to report the bill favorably to the House
Derore action was taken on this motion

present excepting Mr. Crisp and Mr. Mo
Laurin, a report which he had drawn on
the bill in anticipation of today's meet
ing. Uhis report was long and its reading
consumed twenty minutes. It Is described
in a general way as a criticism of the ad
ministration for its insistence that the
present tariff law will furnish sufficient
revenue for the necessities of the gov
ernment. MU. DINGLEY'S CONCLUSIONS.
It contained also a criticism ot the
Senate for its failure to concur In the
revenue measure sent to that body carly
iti the session-, and expressed regret that
the Senate had done nothing to relieve
the situation, but- had, on the contrary,
Mr. Dinglej's conclusions were that the
adoption or the bond bill by Congress would
result In panic, ruin and bankruptcy.-
When Mr. Dlngley finished Mr. Grosrrcnor
moved to amend Mr. Wheeler's motion by
substituting the word "adversely" for "fa
vorable," and on this he demanded the
jeas and nays.
Those who voted to report the bill to
the House adversely were Chairman Dlng
ley, and Messrs. Pajnc, Dalzell, Hopkins,
Grosvenor, Russell, Dolllvcr, Steele, John
son, Evans and Tawncy, Republicans, and
Messrs. Turner and Cobb, Democrats.
The two negative rotes were cast by
Messrs. Wheeler and McMillln.
Mr. Hopkins stated that If the minority

given to thcin.
Mr. Wheeler replied that he regarded the
proposition as so Important that It should
be brought before tlio House without de
lay. Hctated that he would endeavor to
prepare .1 report reflecting the views of
the minority this afternoon.
In this report Mr. Wheeler will show that

"The purpose of the bill is so obvious that
little need be said in its advocacy further
than that there exists ih the city of Wash
ington no memorial romemorative of the
services to the country of the private sol
diers and sailors. Congress has expended
considerable sums of money to give to the
people fitting representations in stone or

that nothing could be more suitable than ro
place in some one of the beautiful parks
within the city of Washington a handsome
