Morgan Inclined to Find Out How Sen
atorial Aspirants for the Presidency
Stand on the Sliver Question.
Washington, April 1. The special pen
sion investigating committee of the house
resumed its session yesterday. Commis
sioner Raum again took the stand. Enloe
asked it Mr. Lineweaver had returned
from his trip out of the city. Raum said
Enloe Can yon tell me where he ha been?
Kanm I can if yon desire to know.
Judge Paj son here remarked that it wason
his advice that Commissioner Raum kept qniet
i regard to Mr. Lineweaver's whereabouts
.nd he tL. :-!.: that it had better be kept
qniet for a d;.y or two, when it would be
proper to dim-lose Lineweaver's movements.
Payson added ihatifthe object of air. Liue
wenvcr's trip was pi von publicity now it misht
defeat the pnrpoMe intended, which was per
fectly justifiable, and had no connection with
the investigation as far as it had trone. The
matter w.ls dropped for the present.
Wanted to Observe Fleming.
The case of J. ". Chapman, pension attorney
of New Haven, Conn., was brought np. Kaum
said that Chapman had a very poor idea of tho
law, but had a trn at many influential friends.
Among them was Senator Piatt. Chapman
had tieen twice disbarred from practice be
fore the pennon nfliio. His reinstatement
and last conviction for taking illegal fees oc
curred several weeks ntf and following close
OiHin each other.
"A few days ago." snid Ftiloe, ! asked if
you had a special examiner sprosser of Pitts
burg called to Washington to spot newspaiKT
"He was not here to spot," said the commis
sioner. "I called him here to mnkesom,- olv-
servations in retard to Mr. Fleming."
"What sort ol oliservatiniisV'
"To see what course Mr. Flcmitic wns nur-
Siling at that time." replied General Kanm.
A Measure of S I f-l'rot eel ion.
Ranm stated that a number of men were
endeavoring to destroy him and his influence
in the office, break down the office and bring
it into disrepute. Fleming was the principal
among the-- men. but he could not find out
anything and let the matter drop. Fleming
was correspondent of the Indianapolis Sen
tinel, but he regarded him as a piratical fellow
who had no standing with newspaper men and
had him watched. Some discussion arose as to
whether Sprosser was engaged to watch pen
sion office employes, the coiumissioaer claim
ing that Fleming was the man to t e watched,
but if any jx-nsion office employes associated
with Fleming they were, of course, seen.
Kxplaining a Pension Case.
Details of a pension claim of Mrs. TTattio
Kee, of Terre Haute. Ind.. widow of Major
Xee, for a pension were discussed. Enloe's ob
ject being to rind out if Raum was not aniioni
to grant the pension and violate the rules of
the office by not permitting the claim to go
through the regular channels. Haum stated
in reply to Fnloe that the case did not go to the
medical examining board, as it was considered
unnecessary by the chief of the board of re
view, and there were legal features in the case
to be decided. He acted simply on the author
ity vested in the commissioner of pensions.
AS TO A POLITICAL POLICY.
Cen. Hanoi Denies That His I'.ureau Is
a Kciuhliraii Machine.
Kanm said he did not have in mind like ac
tion in similar cases, but would look it up. In
answer to Judge l's.n Commissioner Hau in
said he had power to annul the decisions made
by subordinates. If he had not this power ho
would not be the commissioner. Enloe asked
the witness if he had any consultation with
employes of the H-nsion office altom using their
influence to prevent this investigation. "No,
sir." said General Katun. "To no one inside or
outside the office." In the course of question
ing Euloe asked limun if it was not his tiohcy
to use the medical boards and special examin
ers throughout the country as Ik. laical ma
chines for the KepuliHcau party. Kaum de
nied having such a policy iu the office, mt ia
answer to Enlou snid that if Democrats iu tha
field used their influence he would call them in.
AVby Indiana Is So Lucky.
General Kaum said bo was a Republican and
believed in the Republican party. When it
came toassigning men in the field he made it a
point to find oni their politics, but never let
politics stand ia the way of executing the law.
He did not assign more special examiners iu
doubtful states just tiefore elections, nor give
more pensions to doubtful states. The com
missioner statiil that it happened that more
pensions had liecn granted in Indiana than in
other states for the reason that it was close po
litically, and since the meeting of this con
gress, in which all the members from Indiana
were Democrats except two, the members had
sent in more call slips than the members from
other states. Jf be knew of anybody in the
pension office who discriminated against states
he would discharge him.
Five Million That He Didn't Want.
Enloe referred to Sr.(Ki.KHl .of the pension
fund which the commissioner had turned into
the treasury, and asked the commissioner if it
was not to help the secretary of the treasury
who was m a strait. General Kautrrsaid it was
not done for that purpose. He had no use for
the money for inmsion purposes and person
ally informed the secretary that he had that
amount on hand and was ready to turn It in,
and acting tinder the secretary's instructions
he sent the money by telegraph.
The committee then adjourned.
BLAND EXPLAINS THE "CLOTURE.".,
He Says There Is a Misunderstanding of
What the Silver Men Want.
Washington-, April 1. Bland says that
there is considerable misunderstanding re
garding the proposition to bring in a "clo
ture" rule on the silver bilL
The difficulty be said we have with the sil
ver bill is an apparent misunderstanding as to
the nature of the rule that the speaker had
intended to report to the house. It is not a
cloture rule, further than it is in aid of the
previous question, and this has been the clo
ture rule of the house for fifty yeara. The
rule proposed to be reported is simply a rule
to prevent filibustering by declaring it out of
rderfor the speaker to entertain motions of
a filibustering character.
The House Permitted to Decide.
The standing rules already adopted give
the committee on rules power to stop filibuster
ing. That is to say the committee on rules re
ports a rule to the house providing that pend
ing a proposition on which the house wishes to
come to a vote the speaker is prohibited from
entertaining filibustering motions. When
this rule is reported the house itself must
adopt it or reject it, so that it is the house
which must determine whether or not if.
wishes to stop filibustering.
The Difference 1b Last Congress. .
The rules In last congress gave the speaker
absolute power to refuse to entertain dilatory
motions, while the rules of this congress vest
this power in tne House iiseu, out tuo nouse
cannot act upon it without the report from the
committee on rules. The enemies of the silver
bin, he said, it seemed had learued that the
speaker intended to report a rule to prevent
filibustering and had immediately raised a
cry against "cloture," and a great many mem
bers lieing new were misled as to its actual
Cited a Historical Casa.
Bland cited a case under Randall's ad
ministration as speaker, when filibuster
ing had become so great that it became
impossible to pass a bill where there were
a few opponents. It was a notable fact, h
said, tha General Anderson, of Iowa, then
a member of the house, acting alone pre
vented any business being transacted in
the house for several days, until the
speaker, the house, and the country had
become disgusted with the scene.
WANTS TO SMOKE 'EM OUT.
Morgan Grows Inquisitive as to Senators1
Views on Silver.
Washington, April 1. Morgan offered
in the senate yesterday a scries of resolu
tions regarding silver which were not so
remarkable as the purpose Morgan had in
offering them. The pith of the resolutions
was an inquiry into the effect of the act of
July 14. on the price of silver. But
the purpose of Morgan was shown in hU
Wants Senators to Stand Up.
He said ho wished to ascertain the opinions
of senators on this point, and whether there
were senators who permitted the shadows of
roming heroes in the presidential contest to
come between them and their rotes on what ho
considered important questions of the day. In
his own state of Alabama, with an industrious
ud frugal iopulation, there was today very
. -Hons embarrassment for the need of a'cur
renc y, though thoy bad redundant crops. It
was important to ascertain whether this dif
ficulty arose from domestic or foreign causes,
and whether it was open to a remedy regard
less of who should be the presidential candi?!
date either of the Kcpublicans or l)emocrats.-
Some Pointed Allusions Made.
There were senators on the Democratic
side of the chamber who were looming up
as presidential candidates from whom it
was desired to secure expression of their
views o:i this subject.
Teller Ami some on our side, too.
Morgan said it was urged that to dis
cuss this silver question now might hurt
the party ia November, llawley asked
MortMii Your party.
llawley Not a bit.
Why He Hoesii t Want n Caucus.
Sherman asked the senator from Alabama
if be wanted to find out the views of the Dem
ocratic senators why he did not take their
votes in a Democratic caucus. Morgan replied
because votes iu Democratic caucuses always
had a ltearing more or les direct upon party
chums and dominations, while votes in this
body were not subject to such influences.
INVENTION OF THE TELEGRAPH.
A Claimant Who ISrlngs a Prtitest From
Washington, April 1. Mrs. Leila
Morse-Kummel, daughter of the late
l'rof. Korse of telegraphic fame, has ad
dressed a letter to the joiut committee on
library protesting against the passage of
the bill introduced by McPherson for the
purchase for $10,000 from Stephen Vail, of
New York city, of the "original tele
graphic recording receiver inveuted by his
father Arthur Vail, "used upon the first
telegraph line ever constructed between
Washington and Baltimore.

She states that her father's claim to
have been the sole inventor of the orig
inal telegraph instrument has been es
tablished by undoubted proof and had
been upheld by a decision of the United
Suites supreme court and she begs to be
spared the necessity of lighting over again
the battle that her father won in support
of the originality of his invention.

Personal Interviews Now.
Washington, April 1. President Ilarri
sou has abandoned his contemplated duck
ing trip'iu order to personally conduct the
negotiations for a renewal of the modus
Vivendi, having brought the matter to a
point where it seems probable that an
agreement would be made. He was busily
engaged most of yesterday upon this
subject. In the afternoon General Foster
was with him some time and later Sena
tor Morgan, a member ol the senate com
mute on foreign relations, spent a half
hour with the presideut. There has been
no further written correspondence be
tweeu the governments, the negotiations
proceeding wholly by personal interviews,
and the president's confidence that an
agreement will be speedily reached is be
lieved to be well founded. ,

Congressional Doings iu Krlef.
Washington, April 1. Morgan caused
a sensation in the senate yesterday by the
introduction of a series of silver resolu
tions for reference to the finance commit
tee in order, he said, to find out how sena
torial aspirants for the presidency stand.
The senate adopted the house provision in
the Indian bill authorizing the president
in future to appoint army officers as In
dian agents, but with a proviso giving
him discretion to continue to appoint
civilians where he deemed it desirable.
The house continued the discussion of
the free wool bill, the following members
speaking in favor of the measure: Wheeler
of Alabama. Stockuale of Mississippi,
Johnson of Ohio, Voumans and Stout of
Michigan, while Grout of Vermont and
Brosius of Pennsylvania opposed the bilL
A Sanguine People's Party Man.
Washington, April L Representa
tive. Watson, of Georgia, says as a result
of the defeat of the silver bill: "No power
on earth can now keep Georgia from going
into the electoral college with the Peo
ple's party delegation. I confidently be
lieve that the same is true of several other
southern states. What the Democrats
may do with the silver bill hereafter is
comparatively unimportant. They have
had their opportunity."
The Italian Indemnity Case.

state department fails to confirm the press
