said he could see no way of stopping dila
tory proceedings, they would give an ob

Wednesday ome adjustment may be

senate leaders are determined not to

possibly cause delay.
HOLMAN MIGHTY DETERMINED.
Be Cat la World's Fair a Private
Corporation and Is Full of Fight.
Chairman Holman, of the house com
mittee on appropriations, said to a re
porter for the United Press last evening,
talking of the World's fair appropriation

most important measures outside of tha
grnera'. appropriation bills were the Chi
nese exclusion act, the "intermediate" and
army nurse pension bills, the bill to en
forc? reciprocal trade relations with Can

agriculture to the cabinet officers, who

cies Some Hill That Failed.
The Bland silver biil faiied in the house
as did also the fret" coinage bill which
passed the senate: the several tariff bills
passed by the house failed in the senate,
as did also tiie bills providing for the ad
mission of New Mexico and Arizona as
states. Among the m;st important meas
ures passi'd by the senate and not acted
upon by the house were the following: To
facilitate the.settlenient. claimfor arrears
and bounty; the pure food bill"; toincrease
the rate of pension fot certain cases of deaf
ness; for the better enforcement of the im
migration laws. A laree number of public
building an.t claim bills, passed by the
senate also failed in the house.

both houses ftnrl been Ecnt to the president
for his signature. There are twenty of
these bills still under Consideration by the
executive, lie vetoed two and permitted
three to become laws without his signa
ture. It was a great congress for investi
gations, most of them being for the manu
facture of campaign thunder, for this is
presidential year. Both senate and house
had committees trjing to find gut the e
feet of the JeKiiiley bill on the industrial
classes, and in both cases the majorities of
the committees found it out to their own
satisfaction and sodid the minorities. And
the reoorts differed as widely ns the views
of the two parties on the tariff.

Tli en there was the investigation of the
sweating system by a house committeu

the pension oi'ice inquiry, where the
Democrats reports I (Jeneral K ium so

concluded. The civil service reform com
mittee found a nugget at, Baltimore which
enabled it to charge that Wanamaker

and yet kept them on the roll.
The Casen of Content.
There were only six com ested election
cases and four of them were acted upon.
The only one of note was that of the Twenty-eighth
Xcw York district. This was
notable from the fact that the house elec
tions committee reported in favor of
Xoyes, the Republican, but the house re
jected the report and gave the seat to the
Democrat. It was a case in which Senator
Hill took great interest.

where Cashier l.-tvi Say That Ample
Funds Are Held Uneasiness in All
lart of tlie I'nlon.
Inpianapous, Aug. 1. The application
for the appointment of a receiver for the
Order of the Iron Hall has created uneasi
ness in all parts of the Union, and hun
dreds of dispatches are being received by
the local officers asking for particulars and
demanding to know the exact condition of
the order. The gravest reports are current
involving the luuds which are or ought to
be in the hands of the supreme officers. So
far as they relate to the officers in general,
the reports have been indignantly denied,
but an adequate denial is wanting, inas
much as the report relate more directly to
Chief Justice Somerby, who is absent from
the city and cannot, therefore, be heard.
Will Prosecute Somerby Criminally.
The Iron Hall's attorneys have been in
structed to re-ist the appointment of a re
ceiver on the ground that none is needed.
The attorneys say a member has no right
to apply for a receiver, and that the action
is one based on a spite against Justice
Somerby on the part of Daniel W. Knefler,
one of the plaintiffs. In an interview
Charles Smith, of Duncan & Smith, attor
neys for plaintiff, denied that the suit is a
friendly cue, but said Somerby would be
prosecuted criminally. Smith further
said: "Why, they have paid this year over
ll.OMO.oiX), ami there are due yet this year
fl.SJO.OOO iu claims. How are they going
to meet it?"
Cashier Davis Statement.
Supreme cashier Davis said: "We have
about C5.IK-0 members in the United States
and Canada. Our membership in Indiana
is about 1, 500. I think we have now about
$l,tHA',i 00 in the Indianapolis banks. The
company has ample funds to meet all ma
turing obligations, and they will be met
as usual, and the business of the company
will go on. As soon as Mr. Somerby re
turns steps will le taken to meet all obli
gations. It is not true that an unusually
large sum was withdraw n from the local
banks and sent east to Sotuerby's bank.
We are paying all claims that are due
and will continue to do so."
Why the Miit Was Urouglit.
A. II. Baker, of the BakenS: Randolph
Printing company, one of the plaintiffs,
said: "The chief reason for our suit was
this; The Irou Hall carries a cash capital

In the meantime the location of Free
man D. Somerby, chief just ice of the order,
is a mystery. last evening Mark C. Davis
was asked if he had heard from Somerby.
"Not a line," was the reply.
"What do you think of his absence and
failure to communicate with you?''
"I don't know what to thiuk. What do
"Rather strange, isu't it?"
"All I can say is I am disappointed in
