Uy Aspo'Mitte-2 Press.
AVAHHINOTON, T)pp. ".-An appro
priation of $11,000.00(1 was Voted today
toward the construction of the Panama
canal, The amount was n compromise
between the $16,600,000 curried in the
bill under consideration, and mi esti
mate of something over $?,oun,ooo rec«
brhmended by Mr. WlUlamn, the Demo*
cratla leader, to carry on the work un
til the middle df January. Mr. Hep
burn, in chargo of tho bill, sugprosloil
that something over *U,000,000 would
carry on the work until March. Thfire
was no intention manifested to delay
tho work, the only argument for cutting
down tho orlßlniil estimate being that
closer scrutiny might bo had of the es
timate, Tho bill was amended in uc
1 ordanee with suggestions '•'£ Mr. Munn
uf Illinois', directing tho president to ro
qulre annual reports from canal offi
cers covering: all details of ihn work,
requiring such employes to «lvc con
gress any Information It inny dcslro,
and rcstrlcttiiß till expenditurea to
money appropriated by congress and
to that received by tho operation of the
property of the PHiiatna railroad. Oth
mvise the bill was not amended and It
contains besides the appropriation v,
provision removing v. tax disability
against the proposed bonds to bo Issued
lor the construction of the canal, thus
placing the bonds oil v. footing with
other government bonds, as available
lor security for national bank circula
tion and to reimburse the treasury for
the money appropriated in thu bill.
Bond Provision Attacked
The bond provision in the bill was a
point of attack today. Mr. Williams
of Mississippi offered several unsuc
cessful amendments^ all seeking to
abandon the policy of issuing bonds for
the canal work; on the. ground that
there is sufficient available funds in
the treasury to meet all needed de
mandß for the canal work. Mr. Over
street of Indian;) did not succeed in
amending tho bill so that the $10,000
000 already expended In canal construc
tion might be refunded t') the treasury
from the. sale of tho canal bonds. The
bond policy of the. two parties occa
sioned the feature of the debate, and
resulted in limited political discussions.
Secretary Taft, accompanied by the
auditor and purchasing agant of thn
canal commission, came to the capltol
and remained available to give any In
formation that might he asked for on
the floor, but they were not called
upon. With the bill out of the way.
and no committees appointed to begin
consideration of th e several thousand
measures that have been Introduced
since the session began, the house ad
journed until Monday.
The Day's Proceedings
Reading of tho Panama camrt appro
priation bill was resumed in the house
on the convening of that body today.
The first amendment was presented
by Mr. Williams. He moved to cut
the appropriation from 516,500,000 to
$6,853,333, stilting that he -had come to
the conclusion that this latter sum was
sufficient to meet the needs of the com
mission to January 15 next.
The amount has been arrived at by
taking the Indebtedness of the com
mission, which they had stated was
$4,500,000. He had added to this the
December estimates, amounting to $° -
The point was made by Mr. Tawney
that It was impossible to segregate
lrom the estimates the liabilities of the
commission due In December on equip
ment purchased by the commission
It was contested by Mr. Williams that
theso supplies were not to be delivered
until June, and payment need not be
made until delivery. Mr. Tawney held
that payment might be necessary be
fore delivery, aceordiug to terms of
An amendment to that of Mr. Wil
liams was offered by Mr. Prince of
Illinois, making the appropriation $10 -
000,000, basing his argument on the
speedy appointment of committees,
which, lie said, should take up and
make a careful examination of the es
timates furnished. Mr. Prince was of
the opinion that $10,000,000 was a suf
ficient sum to moot all emergency ne
cessities. He wan also opposed to the
issuance of bonds. He said there were
$13«,000,000 In tho treasury und $55,000 -
000 of government money in national
Mr. Hepburn Is Questioned
Mr. Clark of -Missouri asked Mr
Hepburn if all or most of the supplies
for the canal were not purchased by
the New York and Washington pur*
chasing agents, although otber agents
were located ut] Now Orleans and Tu
Mr. Hepburn had no Information.
Mr. Clark: "How many ships have
Mr. Hepburn: "Five."
"Why don't some of them ply be

"I cannot say."
"What I want to say Is that In. my
opinion discrimination Ih being made

tho Mississippi river, and j maintain
that cheaper nil- water rules cuuld bo
made from Pittsburg by way uf New

Concluding the debate on the pond
ing amendment. Mr. Hepburn opposed
culling down the sum to the amount
proposed by Mr. Williams, if it was

the appropriations, ho said, at liiunt
enough money should bo made avail

Council for Thomas F. Ryan, who
bought the James 11. Hydfi stock
nf the. Equitable Life Assurance so
ciety, conferred with Chnrles K.
Hughes, counsel fnr the Investigating
committee, today and said afterward
that Mr. Ryan is holding himself In
readiness to testify before tho com
One of tho points brought out. by Mr
Hughes In today's hearing was the fact
that the Mutual Reserve Life Insurance
company had paid $134,000 to the widow
of Kdward B. Harper, former presi
dent of that company, since Mr. Har
per's death in ISOR. The money Is de
rived from commissions which former
President Harper drew on all the busi
ness written by tho company. His
widow, who has since remarried, con
tinues to receive the commissions.
Incident to this inquiry Mr. Hughes
discovered an Instance In which $8000
had been paid to President Frederick
A. Burntißin of the Mutual Reserve
Life Insurance company In 1896, an.!
concerning which Vice President
George V. Kldredge of thnt company
testified that he knew nothing. The
bookkeeper who mado the payment
from the contingent fund said ho did
not know what it was paid for.
The affairs of the Security Mutual
Life Insurance company of Blngham
ton, N. V., again were under Investi
gation today. One of the interesting
things brought out was the statement
of President Charles M. Turner of that
company that he had employed a few
years ago D. H. Keefer, one of the
clerks In the office of the state super
lnttmdent of Insurance at Albany, to
act as a consulting actuary of the Se
curity Mutual company at $15,000 a
year. For all Mr, Turner knew, he
said, the arrangement still Is In -force;
Clarence H. Venner applied to Su
preme Court Justice Greenbaum yes
terday for a mandamus directing John
A. McCall, as president of the New
York Life, to furnish him with a com
plete list of the policy holders, sup
plemented by their addresses and the
amounts of their policies.
Tho object of Vernier's move is to
obtain proxies to be used at the flec
tion of trustees next April.
Counsel representing McCall opposed
the application strenuously and ■ sub
mitted an affidavit by McCall, In which
A'enner's motives are attacked.
McCall In his affidavit says that the
name and address of a policy holder are
considered confidential matters in an
Insurance office and that if a list were
given to A r enner he might use it to the
company's disadvantage and his own
Decision was reserved.

Confused Their Orders
From the Union Pacific It is officially
announced that the wreck was caused
by the engineer and conductor of the
freight confusing their orders. They
had received orders to meet four pas
senger trains, the lust of which was
tho Overland Limited, at Ahsay, a
siding 5 miles west of liock Springs.
The freight took the siding and when
three of the passenger trains, all of
which were running close together, had
passed Ahsay, the freight started west
without waiting for the Overlnnd Lim
ited. This latter train und the freight
came together head-on, one and a half
miles west of Ahsay. Engineer Brink
of the freight, is among the killed, and
his fireman, Oscar Peterson, was se
riously injured. Conductor Roy Dar
rell, of the freight, admitted that he
had become confused, thinking that all
the trains which he expected to meet
at Ahsay had passed.
Fortunately the wreck occurred
within a short distance of the Wyoming
state hospital, which is located near
Rock Springs. The injured were all
removed to that Institution.
The two engines, the diner, baggage
and mail cars, were completely wrecked
and took fire Immediately following the
wreck, being completely destroyed. Two
mull dorks and the three cooks were
pinioned beneath the cars In which
Ihey were employed and their bodies.
Incinerated beyond Identification, were
later removed from the wreck. The
bodies of tho other employes killed
were removed before the tire reached
The wreck was cleared away early In

limited train and bnggage cars picked
up at Itock Springs. The train is ex

The Union Pacific has done every
