ARA. PROTECTION TRIUMPHS.
Mr. Morrison's Motion in Con
gress Yesterday to Pro
ceed to the
Consideration of Tariff Legisla
tion was Summarily Sat
Down on by
A Yea audjN'ay Tole of 134 Against
to 149 in Favor of tlie Motion
11) not Votinr.
An Effort to Create an Additional As
sociate Territorial Judge For ZS'ew
Mexico Failed of Success.
Likewise a Proposition to Reorgan
ize the Jifaval Establisracnt; The
House Wasn't Ready for it.
Washington, d. C, Dec. 18. On mo
tion of Mr. Ward, of Indiana, the senate
amendment to the liouae bills authorizing
the employment of mail messengers in the
postal service was non-concurred in, and a
conference was ordered.
In the morning hour 3Ir. Hill, of Ohio,
on behalf of the committee on territories,
culled up the bill providing for an addi
tional associate judge of the supreme count
of the territory of .New Mexico.
Mr. Barnes, of Georgia, opposed the bill
because it uid not provide :i clearly defined
territory over which the government was
to be established, the extent of territory Ic
ing dependent upon tne ability of the gov
ernment to induce or coerce live civilized
nations to surrender a portion of their land.
He believed the honor of the country would
be allectul b' the bill, for good faith to
ward the delenseiess and inollensive people
required that it should not pass.
Pending action the committee rose, the
morning hour having expired.
Instantly a hush fell over the house, the
noise in the galleries ceased and all eyes
turned upon Morrison, who arising in his
Mr. Speaker, I move that the house re
solve itself into committee of the whole on

considering the revenue bill.

in the house, and many members with pen

Owing to the deaths of Messrs. Downey,

showing that live members were absent
without pairs. These were Mr. Aiken of

call up the naval re-organization bill but
was antagonized by 3Ir. Crisp with the Pa
cific railroad funding bill, and the speaker
ruled that the question first taken on call
ing up the latter measure, as it was the
prior special order.
3Ir. Springer opposed the measure; he
wished its consideration postponed until
after the holidays at which" time he hoped
to have the privilege of submitting some
i einarks upon the bill; perhaps some amend
ments to it. If its consideration was
piessed at this time lie would resort to all
parliamentary motions to defeat it.
On a standing vote there was a majority
of 117 to 40 in favor of its consideration.
3Ir. Holman demanded the yeas and
nays, pending which Mr. Springer made a
fillibustering motion to adjourn, which at
2:15 was carried, its oppouents not having
sufficient force to order the yeas and nays.
CONVICT I.AUOr. XO GOOD.
Washington-, Dec. 18. Representative
Bragg, chairmau of the committee on
military affairs has submitted n report to
the house to accompany-the army bill,
which contains the following criticism
upon the boot and shoe department of the
Leavenworth military prison: The com
mittee find on investigation, that for the
last fiscal year there was drawn from the
clothing fund by the management of the
military prison at Leavenworth $1G0,S03,
and the boots and shoes of the army have
been and are being manufactured at such
prices by the militar3r convicts that the
commite are satisfied that the boots and
shoes manufactured at the prison cost more
necessarily than if they were made and fur
nished upon contract of manufacturers of
boots and shoes. Theie is of necessity that
lack of skill and art in a convict which are
found in a professional workman; in fact
the tables of the cost of shoes in the army
for a series of j'ears proved that the low
price of labor advances' the cost of shoes
and boots for the army.
It is also asserted by officers of the army
that the convict shoe i not substantially
made and that the worlunanship is defect
ive so that the shoe h of little value. But
in fairness it must be stated that is stoutly
denied, and the committee do not feel will
ing to express an opinion at this time upon
this boot question upon which they ma' be
called to act in future. Upon a full per
centage of rJl the facts bearing upon the
question the committee, however, cannot
forbear from expressing their conviction
that the United States government should
not build up a manufactory to be run b'
convict labor in competition with the hon
est laborer who supports his family by the
product of his labor.
It is also the belief of the committee that
a sentence to the prison for desertion fol
lowed by an education as a shoemaker, har
ncssmaker, chairmaker or a broommakcr,
good quarters, good living, a suit of clothes
at the expiration of the term of sentence,
transportation to his home and five dollars
to refresh himself with, has no such terror
in it as to tend to suppress the crime. In a
humanitarian point of view much can be
said in favor of it, but as aid to military
disciphne the committee think it too weak.
The committee, as a .step in the progress of
reformation, have put a limit of 12,"5,000
upon the amount that shall be expended
out of the clothing fund at the military
prison for the current year, and e.pre.- i
hope that in tho near future the business of
shoe making as a penalty f'r desertion will

Trunk Lino Pool Suits.
Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 18. Attorney
General Cassiday's call upon the Pennsyl
vania railroad compatvy's principal execu
tive officers to appear before him today to
give information in the case aud trunk Hne
pool suits, brought out President Roberts,
Second Vice-President Thompson and their
attorneys, Messrs. Scott, McKeigh and Lo
gan. Mr. Roberts was instructed by the
attorneys to answer all proper questions,
after which he toik the stand and was
sworn. Mr. Kendall then began the cross
examination. Mr. Roberts explained at length his
official relations with the Pennsylvania
railroad and other corporations. Defen
dants in this suit told how the lines of the
compairy ran as well as those of its connec
tions, nearly a score in number, includiug
nearly all of the important lines east of St.
Louis. The Pennsylvania company was a
large stockholder in many of them. Wit
ness was chairman of the" president's com
mittee of the trunk Hne3 and Albert Fink
was commissioner of the pool. In reply to
Cassiday Mr. Roberts said he thought his
company had copies of the minutes of the
proceedings of the trunk line organization
and consented to produce them. Continu
ing Mr. Roberts said:

Under cross-examination by Mr. Mc
Gesive Mr. Roberts said that "the pooling
arrangement wjis merely made up to do
what the law failed to do. Without such
arrangement the wildest competiuon would
take place and one shipper would never
know whether his competitors were getting
better rates or not. Any such arrange
ment as would hurt the public would be
ten times more hurtful to the railroad com
panies. Mr. Roberts said also that the Pennsyl
vania railroad company had frequently
been on the eve of withdrawing from this
contract. The directors of the company
have raised the question of the legality of
the contract and have only remained in it
for the purpose of protecting the state in
the matter of freight rates as providec by
the trunk line commission.
Mr. McGestive asked: How much per
centage of your total tariff is in this pool?
Mr. Roberts Our entire through busi
ness is only about S per cent, of the whole
business of the company, and I cannot say
what percentage of our west bound freight
is in the pool.
Mr. McGestive asked Mr. Roberts with
reference to the national feeling concerning
pools. He said that from consultations he
had had he believed the United States sen
ate was strongly disposed to favor a pool
ing arrangement. For himself, he believed
in the greatest publicity of the rates estab
lished by the pool.
Are you willing to ithdraw from the
pool? asked Mr. Cassiday.

Because I don't think the people acree

State vs Federal Courts.
Chicago, Dec. 18. A special to the
Timesrom Lincoln, Neb., says: Attor
ney General Leesc transmitted his report
to the governor today. He makes the
somewhat startling and unusual WeTv7fal0Tlie denial is that the Granda are
tion that the U. S. courts are infringing
upon the courts of our state. He says. I
find that there is such a growing tendency
on the part of the fedcruT courts to extend
their power that the machincr' of our state
Courts is almost purulved. '1 his is enured
b' a strange construction of the federal
judiciary act, and from the most trilling
pretext the courts are looked to as the final
tribunal in the declaration of a criminal
trial. The above act has liecn so construed
that in the discretion of a federal
judge a prisoner in our state
penitentiary who having been duly con
victed in our district court with judgment
of conviction affirmed by our state supreme
court, can be released by a habeas corpus,
and the state is allowed to carry its con
victcd felons to and from the federal
courts wherever they may be given, and
that to the judge's decision it would be
grcatlj' to the interest of our jeople that
the jurisdiction of the federal courts should
be given in express terms and should be so
limited in every respect that the poor man
can ligiatate his rights as well as the rich
man, and where an eastern money lender
feels perfectly safe in loaning his monej
on Nebraska farms, he should be com
pelled to go into our Nebraska courts for
redress in case of a violation of the con
tract. The Wall Street Menagerie.
