A variety of subjects occupied the
attention of the House during the con?
sideration or the sundry civil appro?
priation bill to-day. Mr. Mahany, of
New York, made an attack on the
patriotism of some of the social lead?
ers or New York whom, he said, held
high revel while the nation was bowed
down 'with grief over tho loss of lire
resulting from the Maine explosion.
Mr. Mahany referred to the vegetable
parly given by Abrain S. Hewott, of
New York, on the evening of February
17th. He also made it vicious assault
on a New York paper for Us opposition
to pneumatic tube system for trans?
mission of the malls In New York, Bos?
ton. Philadelphia and Brooklyn. The
Item appropriating $25,000 for power for
this system occasioned a good deal of
debate, but It stood In the bill.
The appropriation of $75.000 for the
detection of violations of the Intcrnul
revenue laws caused some debate. Mr.
Kitchen (Dem.), and Mr. Dtnncy (Rep.),
of North Carolina, were bitter In their
denunciation of the Injustice of the
system of paying for information. The
former moved to strike out the Item.
It placed a premium, they contended,
upon false prosecutions. Last year,
Mr. Llnney said. Information was
lodged against 3,300 persons, but there
were only 789 arrests. These wholesale
charges against the people of his State,
especially those In tho western portion,
he said, had prejudiced the officials
here, and he appealed to the House to
remove the injustice done his people.
Mr. Graff (Hep.), of Illinois, warmly
defended the appropriation. Over $10,
000.000 in taxes were puld In his dis?
trict, he said, by legitimate distillers.
But Immense frauds were practiced on
the revenue. It wns estimated that 35
per cent, of the whiskey consumed In
this country was Illicitly distilled. The
small number of convictions he attri?
buted to the fact that the communities
and Juries were In sympathy with the
offenders. A fund of this character,
he said, was accessory to secure in?
formation of moonshiners.
Mr. Kitchen denounced the "dirty
I scoundrels" who Informed for pay, and
declared that frivolous persecution
would not cease as long as the Gov?
ernment paid for testimony.
Chairman Cannon explained that the
increase in the appropriations for this
i fund from $50.000 to $75.000 was due to
?the increase of the tax on whiskey to
$1.10 a gallon. A gallon of whiskey cost
less than 20 cents. The evasion of the
tax gave a profit of 00 cents a gallon.
The mere statement of the case showed
the necessity for using other than ordi?
nary means for securing Information.
iMr. Evans (Rep., Kentucky), who Is
an ex-conimlssionor of internal revenue.
I favored the appropriation, and said the
' opposition to this item proceeded upon
the theory that the moonshine Industry
must and shall be preserved. He was
opposed to that doctrine. Ho pointed
out the extreme difficulty of ascertain?
ing violation.? of law. yet It was a fact
that there were States In the Union
where it was Impossible to sell whiskey
for $1.10 a gallon, because of the Im?
mense amount Illicitly distilled. He de?
nied that any portion of this fund was
used to buy testimony. It was, he said,
a Blander upon the appropriation and
upon the administration of the law to
intimate that the Government bribed
witnesses. Whenever a Representative
opposed this appropriation upon the
floor of the House It would be found that
illicit distilling was one of the industries
of bis district.
Mr. Swanson (Dem., Virginia), in ad?
vocacy of the motion, said the cases
trumped up by the Informers crowded
the United State? courts, and their
prosecution cost the United Sta.tes an?
nually from one half to a million dollars
more than the property seised.
After some further debate by Messrs.
T?te (Dem., Georgia) and .Pearson
(?Rep., North Carolina), In favor of the
motion, and by Mr. Bayers (Dem., Tex?
as). In opposition to It. the vote was
taken and the motion to strike out the
appropriation was adopted.
?Mr. Cannon gave notice that he would
ask for an aye and nay vote when the
bill was reponted to the House.
Tlte appropriation for continuing the
Investigation of the seal (|ues:lon went
out on a point of order. P?rty-slif pages
of the bill were disposed of to-day.
