THE MOKlsriSTG TIMES, THJJ.BSpAY, JULY 15, 1897
The Wish to Avoid Action Ou the
Pacific Railroads Matter.
MORGAN MAKES THE CHARGE
Ur. Genr, Chairman of tlie Pacific
Hnilroads Committee, lodlijnaiirly
but Ineffectively 31a Ues Denial.
llarh Criticism of tlie Deal
Hade bv President Cleveland.
" Tbedsvelopments in the Senate yesterday
demonstrate that the Republicans will per
mit the passage of only such legislation
tills session as fceems convenient for tli-ir
party or ample enough to.pay that party's
debts. There were Federal important mat
ters to come before the Senate yesterday,
namely, the Tacific Railroad resolution
of Senator Harris, the Hawaiian treaty
and the Berry resolution that this Government-
shall- demand tlie release of Oiia
.Melton and incldentaUy other American
prisoners In Cuba.
Tiie Pacific Railroad resolution was
perhaps the least important of the.-e, but
i, came up Sirt and was blocked from a
JittJe arter noon until the adjourameut
of the Senate at 5 p. m.
,. Mr. Morgan charged Mr. Gear.ths i-hair-'
limit of tlie Pacific Railroad committee,
with filibufcterins, which charge Mr.
Gear dramatically, indignantly, but hope
lessly denied. Tliat the whole actiou of
the Senate on the Republican side was
filibuster was apparent It is Baid than
tlie. Republicans went too far, and that
before tlie session closes they will be
juiie sick of dilatory tactics.
Altligugh the l'aciric Railroad matter
was not finished yesterday, the Democrats
CAuldnotobtalnfrom Mr. Gearanynssurancc
that It will be continued today.
There Is alro no assurance that the Berry
resolution: which was reported favorably
yesterday, -will be considered today, or to
morrow, or at any time As to the
'Hawaiian treaty it is fa'.rly well under
stood that it will not be disponed of at
There w.is only a handful of Senators
present at noon , the hour of meeting of Uie
Sent te. A quorum "was , lio wever, obta incd
after long -waiting and with the assistance
of the sergeant-at-arms, and -work was
begun. Mr. Harris, of Kansas, called up
tis resolution on the Pacific Raslrjad
matter, the object of the resolution being
to have the President suspend tin opera
tion of tlie secret contract, stated to have
been entered into between Prciid-fnt
Curt-land and the Pacific Railroad re
oiga nidation roinmittce
A few moments after a quorum was ob
tained. A resolution came over from the House,
authorizing the Secretary of War to grant
permission for tlie erection of a temporary
studio on a public reservation, in which to
work oil the btatue of Gen. Sherman.
Mi. Harris yielded to have this resolu
AVhon it had been read Mr. Morgan took
the floor to maintain the duty of the Sen
at- to consider the Harris resolution, al
though he would not antagonize the reso
tlon just read.
He would not filibuster as the Republi
cans were doing. Mr Morgan proceeded
to state the duty of the Senate when he
-was Intermpted by Mr. Hale, who called
attention to the fact that the matter
lefbre the Senate was the resolution re
lating to the Sherman statue.
Mr. Morgan yielded and Mr. Thurston
Epoke at some length, In which lie re
ferred "with wme feeling to the circum
stance that when he was making a speech
on this Pacific Railroad matter he was
cut off by the ''single objection of the
Senator from Alabama" (Mr. Morgan).
He "said that he never had objection to
the matter coming up when there was
chance for full discussion.
Mr. Gear denied that he obstructed the
piogress of the Harris resolution. Tlie
time, he said, had been spent in calling
the roll. He thought the question w:;.?
one which should be discussed both by
the Senate and House, but besides that
it contained objectionable features, such
as the investment by the Government of
$09,000,000 in the road, and operating
it on Government account, ne was op
posed to governmental control of railroads.
Mr. Thurston reiterated that the matter
ought to be discussed before a full Sen
ate. Mr. Hariis made a short argument, In
-which be directed his attcntiou to the
debtor and creditor view of the transac
tion. Mr. Harris quoted freely from tbe
testimony taken in the investigation to
show the great loss to the Government,
and the fi oozing out of the minor stock
holders As to the sinking fund, he said
It cither belonged to the original com
pany or to the Government, and that in
either case it did not belong to the pros
pective purchasers, the new organisation.
He thought that the Government taking
any other action than was contemplated
by the acts of 1S62 and 1S04, would be
to sacrifice the public welfare to which
It was pledged. Mr. Harris reviewed at
Miiip length the early history of the con
struction of one of the lines the Kansas
Pacific: and the many ways in Which jobs
and siiandals were made possible and
Mr- Harris attacked the "secret con
tract" between the reorganization com
mittee and the late executive, the lute
lamented executive, rather- It was a
dark lantern conspiracy, a twin to tl'e bond
Baby., a disgrace and a shame to the nation-
Mr. Morgan charged Mr. Thurston with
doing all he could to prevent Congress
from interfering with the actiou taken
by President Oeveland with reference to
the road. Mr. Thurston was even now
opposing the Harris resolution, as lie had
opposed it consistently all along: nnd the
attempt to discuss the matter was met by
Mr. Gear protested violently against
the Imputation of filibustering.
Mr. Morgan charged that the objection
-was interposed on the part of the Union
Pacific Railroad, and that It was done to
secure delay. Some of the receivers of
the road, he declared, were members of
the new organization. Mr. Morgan showed,
and asked any one to deny it, that by the
arrangements permitted by the late Presi
dent ttrsse now manipulators were really
bidding 28,700,000 Instead of $45,
700,000, and yet they were valuing tlie
property at $200,000,000. All tlie con
tributions that -were ever made to the road
-were by the people, aadaous by themanipu
latcrs. It was the duty of Congress to
Intervene and protect the public Interests.
It was not a political question. No one
knew what had been done between the re
organization company and President Cleve
land, Therefore, there was either a
written contract between them, or, if
there had been one, it is not now on file.
It wns evidently one not completed, and
the present President has a right to recall
or suspend such agreement. At any rate
the contract had not been completed, and
the transfer for the sinking fund had not
been made, and all that was asked was
that the President look into the matter
and suspend the negotiations at once.
If the present resolution was passed it
web very doubtful if any court would
execute the contract alleged to have bf en
entered into between the late ricsldenfc
anil the reorganization committee The
superior power of Congress in the matter,
lie said, could be inferred from tlie fact
that the CongiesJ had a right to .suspend
and to annul, it necessary, the charter of
Mr. Morgan said that all that was asked
was .that the President continue the case
until Congress could act. He called at
tention to the fact that Mr. Cleveland
put off' this agreement with Fitzgerald
until the last days of his Administration.
If theie had been no extra session, the
scheme would have been executed by a
decree in court, and the whole mutter
would have been disposed of by
the time Congress met again. He believed
that that "was the plan of those in
terested. Mr. Thurston replied to Mr. Morgan. He
submitted, as pait of his remarks,
reports from the Department of the In
terior and from the Attorney General, to
snow that all of the correspondence re
lating lo the agreement could be hud m
these departments. Mr. Thurston said
.that there was nothing dark or hidden
in the matter, no plan to defraud the
Government, because the overtures were
made by Gov. Hundley, acting for ths
Government, even to the proposition re
lating to tlie -sinking fund. Mr Hiadley
also stipulated that the sale should be an
Mr. Turpie said that nothing had yet
been shown to justify the sale or theink
ing fund. '
Mr. Thurston said that the sinking fund
didn't cut any figure. Tlie Govern
ment was to get $-15,000,000 over all
claims for tlie read, this to include the
sinking fund, which amounts to about
$17,000,000. In other words, the Gov
ernment could keep the sinking fund, and
the committee's bid would be only $23,
000,000, the whole debt of the Govern
ment being about $50,000,000.
Mr. Turpie So that in either case the
Government would get less than DO cents
on the -dollar.
Mr. Thurston said that he was not mak
ing any speciul plea for the company. The
first and second mortgages were due, and
thero was no reason why the Government
holding such mortgages should not be
brought into court for an open sale. The
people of the .Northwest were looking for
a new ownership. They could then regu
late rates, which they could not do nor
under federal operation He took no stock
in the constant clamor against the evils of
corporations. He said that if the Senate
passed the Harris resolution it would re
lease the $4,000,000 forfeit put up by
the prospective purchasers. If that were
released there was no telling what tiie
bids -would be at the sale. If there was
a bigger guarantee bid offered he wdnld
ov. for the resolution. Mr. Thurston, in
answer to a question from Senator Davis,
said that the $-15,000,000 bid was net to
After tills speech Mr. Davis moved an
Senator Sewell protested that the reso
lution referring to the Sherman statue
had not been passed It was accordingly
taken up and passed unanimously.
Mr. Allen asked IT the Harris resolution
-would be taken up today. Mr. Gear
would make no promises, and the motion
to go into executive session was put jnd
carried, after which session the Senate
adjourned until today at noon.
STOL12X MONEY HECO VERED.
Proprietor Iloliues' CukIi Found Tin
der n Hndiutor tit the Jefferson.
Mr. Fred Holmes, proprietor of the Hotel
Jefferson, corner of Sixth street and Louisi
ana avenue, came hurriedly into police
headquarters yesterday and notified Do
tectlved Weedon and Hartignn that $35
had Just, been stolen from his cash drawer.
The detectives hurried lo the hotel, and
wliile making a preliminary examination
were informed by a youth who slops in the
house that a drunken man had just stag
gered out of the basement.
The man was overhauled and proved
to be a Maryland physician, about "half
teas over," who had been in the bar .f
the hotel to get another drink. The in
toxicated doctor quickly proved an alibi,
and the detectives returned to the hotel
and found that the drawer had beta fil
tered by means of a duplicate key, ami
rrlocked after the money was stolen. The
Maryland physician, in the meantime, stag
gered across the street to the police court,
where he had been summoned as a wit
ness. The detectives then searched the-house,
end, after ransacking a number of rooms
founa the $35 under a radiator in cue of
the upstairs apartments, where it had been
placed by the thief.
A boy was suspected of the theft, and
taten to police headquarters, but Mr.
Holmes declined to prosecute him.

didates for the Place.'
Beginning -with today the office ot
corouer will be vacant until u Miccest-or
to Dr. Charles M. Hainmett is appointed.
Yesterday the. Commissioners received Dr.
llarnmtt's ieslgnatiou of Hie office, to
take effect on August 1. It was, how
ever, accompanied by- a request for tbe
a-jjular leave of absence, which was
granted and will take effect today anil con
tinue for fifteen days. In the interim it
is believed that Deputy Coioner Glaze
brook will officiate as he lias done on
previous occasions during the absence of
Dr. Hanimet was appointed coroner
tJ-ree years ago ly President Cleveland
and lias made a most thorough and'effi
cient official. Duiing Iris term of office
hundreds of cases have come under his
jurisdiction, all of which have received
careful investigation. Dr. Hammett lias
fir some time been considering the ad
visability or giving up tlie office, owing
tottic large volume or workwhlchdevolved
upon him. After his vacation he will
devote his entire time to private practice,
and continue nfc hi old location, No. (544 F
There is considerable speculat'on as to
the probable successor of -Dr. Hammett.
At present the leadiug candidates in the
field are Deputy Corouer Glazebrook and
Dr William P. Carr, chief of the staff or
the Emergency Hospital. A rumor was
current last night that Dr. Carr had
already been tendered the office, and
would foon enter upon the discharge of
his dut'es. This, however, the tiiiehir
denied last night, and even said that
he had not been consulted in the matter.
He admitted that possibly some of his
friends were looking after his Interests
in that respect, hut he had not yet
decided whether or not lie would accept
tlie position if offered it. As to his
having received the nppointment or been
assured of It, there was no truth In the
It is generally conceded that Dr. Glaze
brook stands a pood show of becoming
coroner Certainly he ie well qualified to
fill the position, not alone on account of
hi? ability ns a physician, but his knowledge
of the duties of the office as well. It will
probably be several days liefore the selec
tion is made known.
AN ILLJIGATj ACT.
Police Judge Kluihuil Said to Ilnve
Kxceeded His Authority.
It is claimed by District officials that
the sending of Italph G. Ilyer, the ophnn
smoking young man, to Jail by Judge
Kimball, to be examined there as to his
mental condition, is an illegal proceeding.
It is said tnerc is no law which permits
Judge-Kimball, oi any other official, to
commit a supposed lunatic charged with
crime to jail for examination. The proper
touise, it is said, was for the Judge to
have summoned two reputable physicians
to examine Hyer, and if they concluded
that he was tainted with insanity to have
certified him to the Secretary of the In
terior for a jury examination and commit
ment to Rt. Elizabeth's.
In cases of prisoners charged with mls
demeanoiK It is different. They being
alleged violators of District ordinances
can be committed to the workhouse and
tno'-e examined by the physicians employ

PEKMJLT TO A RAILWAY.
Commissioners Allow Trnclt to Be

The Commissioners yesterday granted a
permit to President Handle, of the Capitol
Railway Company, to relay the
track on the Navy .Yard Bridge acros

the Johnson Company's section, No. 800,
an eighty -six pound grooved rail.
This will enable the railway company
to cross the bridge, and the, selection of
the rail by the company will also clear
the way- for the Commissioners to go
ahead with the proposed repairs to the

the Metropolitan Railway Company for the
enfcuinsr year as follows:
President Robert D. Weaver.
Vice President A. B, Grunwell.
Secretary and General Manager G. B.
Treasurer W. G. Wilson.
When Hie meeting had been called to
order, Grirfin B. Coleman read the fiscal
statement or the ompany for the jear.
The gro'-s receipts had ben 1.181.1-13,
au increaf-e of $207,448.07 over the le
ceipts for the preceding y?ar.
President Harries then read his annual
leport A synopsis or this follows:
"When 1 was elected president," said
Maj. Harries, "there was laid out for
me a program most formidable in its
dimensions and character. Boycotted by
every local labor organization, and with
its diameter and future threatened by
every Knight of Labor in the land, th!s
company "Was awkwardly situated. What
ever It wanted or the authorities was
Byhtematicnlly and persistently opposed by
powerful agencies, with which a large
proportion of tlie public sympathized. To
remove this -entiiuontwas the task which
faced me at the ouUct.
"To bring about a better state of af
fairs. I devoted all mytlmeandenergy.aim
to such effect that wliea we made our ap
pearance berore Congress in behalf of our
Tight to extend out the Columbia road, we -had
the friendly assistance of every labor
organization in the city with the ex
ception of the Knights of Labor. That
legislation, to secure, which not one
dollar wna dishonestly spent, gave lo this
rompany a fiaucluse cne vaiue or wnicn
will daily become more apparent. The
economies have been general. Operating
expen.-es have been reducSd to a thor
oughly biisluess-llke basU. Never has the
company's working force been in such fine
conditii-n. There Is no friction among
the subordinates. Conductors nnd motor
men are satisfied. They have lieeii falrly
dealt wit'i. Their minor, yet annoying,
discomforts have been removed. Hours of
labor have been shortened and their toil
properly ameliorated. The men have been
treated as men, and the consequence is
mutual affection, of which I am, and al
ways shall be, most proud No fault can
be found with the plant or equipment.
Plans for the reinforcement of power at
both stations are being worked out To
the carrying of passengers we have added
thebu.sincw of carrying United States mall.
The financial situation Is no satisfactory."
Major Harries then dealt in statistics
to show the advance made during the
year. He closed by saying: "With this
sin-wing I am perfectly content. I have
nothing to legret and nothing to apologize
John B. Lamer moved that this report
be printed, and that a copy of it be sent

only be a question of a little time -when
It would get into the papers, and he

be published alout the report which Presi

stock vote, and the result of this was
that the report was tabled.
Mr. C. R. Spence, of the Mercantile
Trust and Deposit. Company, of Baltimore,
the corporation which, it is said, furnished
the canital for the installation of the
electric system on the Metropolitan lines,
was present, and urged that the report
should be printed.
Mr. Dorsey Claggett protested against
the candidacy of Griffin B. Coleman for
director. Mr. Coleman was secretary nnd
general manager of the company, and It
was bad business forjn that he should
also bo a director In the company.
It was decided that no publicity should
be given to the report of, PresidentHarries

Sugar had a tumble yesterday, hut only
a serious one hecaui-c tome people had
thought it was going to 150 without a halt
The Uiup leIC ii anil up to tne highsat

end of the day.
I'efeterday morning's Capitol gossip in
timated that the Conference Committee
wan not hiving smooth sailing ou the es
sential feature ot the tariff udl. The al
leged eompioniise over the sugar tched
ule -.vas said to he in danger, and it was
also reported that the leaders ot the House
were determined to have the sugar duties
conform to the prcviblons of the original
Speculative holders let go of their sugar
et'iek at the openlug, and the sharp decline
was the feature ot the early morning
market. On the break, however, there ay
prared to he buying, which may be et
plained either on the score of manipula
tion or of the support which tlie short
interest put out at the rapid advance jould
naturally create. The stock was, however,
faith- well held at the decline.
On the other hand, both the activity
and strength of Sugar were transferred
to other portions of the list. The market
was firm and advanced steadily, almost
without breaks. The immediate future
movements of .Sugar, those induced by
speculative influences, are certainly prob
lematical, thrugh there seems very .good
reaon to believe that the stock- will con
tinue for some time as high as at present,
and maybe advance, not taking into ac
count the small speculative fluctuations.
The professional gossipers arc only now
announcing that Mr. Rockefeller is ac
quiring Sugar stock. The facts were told
in this column several weeks ago, with
considerable elaboration, and were re
iterated esterday. There can be no ques
tion of their reliability.
It is said that there lias been a merging
ot interests between Lackawanna and
Northern New Jersey.
Mr. Robert LIndblom, Mr. Sllsby's cor
respondent, says of wheat:
"The market acts just right to suit me
from a bull point of view.

and who made it his business to post
himself on the crop situation while there,
talks very hopefully of the grain ship

Jt is thought by A good many people
that- St. Paul will be In the lead of ad
vances from now until fall and beyond.
Dow, Jones & Co. say of the grangers:
"The renewed activity in the grangers
is very acceptable to bull leaders, for
they look on this group as the surest
of any of the lists, for crop prospects have
been tn no way diminished. Increased
dividends all through tlie Southwest are
more than probable this fall. The buying

Chicago, July 14. Wheat was strong
and weak by turns. Receipt-iof new wheat
and the strength of the markets abroad
continue the feature- Minneapolis made
big sales of flour, 50,000. tarrels, today.
Bradstreet's showed a decrease of 4,
946,000 ImshelE In the world's available
supply last week against 2,011,000 bushels
a year ago, and Liverpool was reported
bidding 4 cents higher for Kansas hard
wheat than a -week ago- The market
opened very strong and was met with a
flood of selling orders by longs and local
bear crowd. The early sellers replaced
their wheat on the decline, and a very
sharp recovery followed. When the Brad
street's statement came out the trade
took it as the r roper time to sell their
wheat, and the market was unable to sus
tain the heavy offerings.

To the Editor ot The Times:
I have just had my attention called to
an article in this morning's Times, headed
"Intrigue at the CapltoL"
About four yeurs ago I was employed
by Mr. Page as "cashier"' at the Senate
restaurant, and continued to act In that
capacity until Monday morning last, when
I was summarily discharged by 2dr. Page.
In May last. Page sold out a halt in
terest in tho6tockon hand in the restaurant
to one lticbard N. Shaw, a colored em
ploye (the rest ot the property being al
ready mortgaged), and he then left the
city wim ins ramiiy anu eriects ror Maine
and left me, as before, In charge of the
cash. About three weeks ago, lt was
suggested to mo that an effort wa- being
made by an outsider to secure the restau
rant, and as lt was more than probable
that a change was to bo made, I had best
apply. Beliuving that Mr. Page had per
manently removed from the city, and
having heard him state that he wasbbinu:

the businoss, if properly conducted, with,
rensomriile charges, would pay handsomely,
T gave my consent to some friends to take
the position it it should be the pleasure of
the Committee on Rules to give It to me;
but I distinctly stated that I could not, and
would not, neglect my duties as cashier,
or request the signature of any Senator
so long as I remained In Page's employ.
Friends In the meanwhile prepared a pe
tition and secured the signatures of a num
ber ot Senators. Some one in the restau-
rant evidently notified Page; he returned
tc the city on Sunday last. Ou Monday
morning I went to my desk in the restau
rant as usual. I found Page in the room,
lie Immediately said: "Your services will
no longer be required here; give me. the
keys." I expressed my willingness to
quit and surrender the keys, provided ho
would settle my wages for the month;
this he refused to do. I therefore brought
suit against Page and Ills partuer Shaw
before Justice Bundy. The ease was tried
on yesterday at 3 p. m., and it was settled
by Page paying something less than $10
ot the sum due me. I accepted the com
promise, because I believed it was all I
could get- II. It. TAPPAN.
