Sundry Civil Measure Ioean't Get Left
Concession of the Bouse on the Pln

the Committee That Investigated His
Charges A Report That Is no Comfort

Hurries to Loon Lake.
Washington, Aug. 6. The first session
of the Fifty-second congress adjourned
last night at 11 o'clock having settled the
differences between the house and senate
on the sundry civil bill, and given the
World's fair directors $2,500,000 with
which towag along and do $5,000,000 worth
of work. The World's fair man sighs
when he thinks of the sum appropriated,
but consoles himself with the thought
that there will be another session in Decem
ber, and that it will not be followed by a
general election. The first business taken
up in the house was the Durborow fair
Went Through Very Kasily.
There was no trouble in gettingthe "half
loaf for the fair through. There was
some speaking, bat not much, on the sub
ject pending, some of the speakers stray
ins away and getting in their work on
some other issue. Cummings of New
York went down with his anti-fair colors
flying. Fellows of the same state made a
brilliant little speech for the enterprise.
Cummings said: "It is with a feeling of
pride that I reflect that I have filibustered
against this looting proposition." For this
he received the enthusiastic applause of
one solitary man from Texas, Kilgore. He
then read in a sarcastic manner telegrams
demanding that he vote for the World's
Fellows Idea of the Fair.
In the course of his speech Fellows said
after reading the resolution adopted' by
the Democratic national convention:
"This resolution which I have read in
your hearing recognizes as distinctly as
language can express thought two ideas.
The first is that this exposition is a national
undertaking. It so declares in words.
Second, it imposes upon the Democratic
party, in so far as a convention can
bind its representatives, the duiy
of making a contribution of financial
aid to that governmental enterprise. And
with the highest respect fgr the opinions
of my associates on this side of the house,
when I come to receive direction that shall
control my action as a Democrat I prefer
to receive it from a convention where
every cone ressional district in the United
States has its representative rather than
to take it from a part of my colleagues
upon this floor."
Takes a Parting Miot at Raam.
During the debate in committee of the
whole the "fire" was scattering. Enloe
took the opportunity to "blast" Commis
sioner Kaum, declaring the commissioner
the greatest curiosity of the age, "who, de
spite the blots on his official career, had
been retained in office by the power of the
president." This brought a reply from
Dolliver, who defended Kaum and his rec
ord. Brosius of Pennsylvania said it was
cowardly to attack a man who could not
reply. He defended Haum's administra
tion. The bill being reported to the house
and the speeches of Fellows and others
completed a vote was soon reached.
The World's Pair's Great Day.
It is a peculiar fact that Friday has been
a lucky day for the fair. Everything of
favorable importance to the World's fair
has happened on Friday. The bill creat
ing the fair was introduced on Friday; the
bill was passed on Friday; the president
signed it on Friday; the first meeting of
the national commission was held on Fri
day; Columbus discovered America on Fri
day; the dedication of the fair will be held
on Friday. And so to complete the mat
ter as far as it has gone the Durborow bill
passed on Friday. The first vote was on a
substitute permitting the fair man-'
agers to buy $3,000,000 in silver bullion
and have it coined into $5,000,000. This
was beaten 76 to 139.
The Final Vote on the BUI.
Then the question came up on the pas
sage of the $J,500.WX) bill, the vote being
yeas, 131; nays, 83. The vote against the
bill was as follows: Alexander, Antony,
Bacon, Bailey, liankhead, Beeman,
Blanchard, Branch, Breckinridge of Ar
kansas, Breckinridge of Kentucky, Bunn,
Byrne, Cate, Clarke of Alabama, Cobb of
Alabama, Cobb of Missouri, Covert,

Watson, Winn. The Republicans all
voted for the bill.
REACHED ADJOURNMENT AT LAST.
The Hons Recedes from the Piokerton
Amendment Closing Transactions.
After the passage of the world's fair bill
the house took recess until 7 p. m. and
promptly at that hour the speaker called
the members to order. A few bills were
passed of no particular interest, and then
Holman presented the conference report
on the sundry civil bilL He said the bill
was $2,600,000 greater than passed by the
house and 9,600,000 less than as passed by
the senate. Concerning the Pinkerton de
tective clause of the bill Holman admitted
that the amendment adopted by the house
was a little too broad, and that in the in
terest of a speedy adjournment of the
house the cosferrees were obliged to accept
the substitute submitted on the part of
the senate. .
Blmpson Utters a Protest.
Holman added that the Beaate had
appointed a committee to investigate the
matter. The house had done likewise and
it was for these committees to investigate
and make a report before action should be
taken. Simpson denounced the act of
representatives of the house in surrender
ing to the representatives of the "plutocracy
of the country." "You'll hear from this
in the election in the fall," said Simpson,
"and any one that votes for this amend
ment should be left at home." Simpson's
time expired while he was speaking and
he concluded with tbe remark that the
great steel works at Homestead were
properly called "steal." The speaker
directed the official reporter to strike out
all Simpson said after the gavel fell. ,
Preparations to Quit Business.
But Simpson's protest had no effect and
the previous question was demanded, sec
onded and carried, and the report adopted
by a vote of 169 to 14. A resolution was
then adopted to appoint the customary
committee to join a like senate committed
to wait on the president and ascertain
whether he had any lurther communica
tions for congress. The committee was
appointed with McMillin as chairman.
Passed Private Pension 15111s.
Tn the interim between the transaction
of further business the house devoted it
self to private pension and relief bills and
a large number of them were passed. At
10:40 o'clock the secretary of the senate re
ported that the senate had adopted the
resolution of the house agreed to last week
providing for adjournment at 2 o'clock
last Monday with amendment providing
that adjournment should take place at 11
o'clock last night. The resolution as
amended was agreed to. Then McMillin
reported that the president had no further
business to present to congress.
. To Codify the Pension Laws.
Pearson of Ohio offered a concurrent
resolution providing for the appointment
of a committee of two members from the
house and a similar number from the
senate to codify and simplify existing pen
sion laws during the recess of congress,
and after some verbal changes had been
made the resolution was agreed to. It
was just one minute of 11 when a resolu
tion was offered directing the president to
invite representatives of the nations of the
;arth to attend the international arbitra
tion congress to be held in Chicago dur
ing the World's fair. This went through
They were Too Late.
It lacked five seconds of the eleventh
hour when a dozen members shouted wild
ly for recognition, waving papers in their
hands. But they were too late. Speaker
Crisp announced that the hour of 11
o'clock had ariived, and, bringing his
gavel down on his desk with a bang, de
clared the first session of the Fifty-second
congress adjourned without day. Then
there was handshaking and many good
byes and in balf an hour the house of
representatives was deserted.
THEY SAT DOWN ON WATSON.
hibitors at tne worm's fair was adopted.
The report of the committee which
investigated Watson's charges of
drunkenness, etc., severely .censur
ing Watson and declaring his
charges unfounded, was recrived and a
recess takeu to 7 p. m. at which session
the conference report on the sundry civU
bill was adopted, receding from the Pin
kertous cl.au.e on the part of the house.
This ended the business and the usual
committee to wait on t he president having
reported that he had nothing further to
communicate to congress, the house ad
jouned at 11 p. m. to December next.
Hurried Off" to Sve His Wife.
Washington, Aug. 6. President Harri
son left the city last night shortly after
11 o'clock, going directly too Loon laka
to see his wife, and will probably be gone
about a month.
Carpenters for Kight Hours.
ST. Lot'ls, Aug. 6. At yesterday's ses
sion of the Carpenters' Brotherhood a res
olution was adopted ordering the district
councils in the different states to prepare
bills making eight hours a day's labor and
present them to the different legislatures
and insist upon their passage.
The Charges of Irunkenness are Not
Washington, Aug. 6 The report of the
committee that investigated Watson's
charge that "drunken members had been
seen to reel through the aisles of the
house, a disgrace to the republic, and that
urunken members had debated issues on
the floor and had been heard to ask:
'Mr. Speaker, where was I atf " was given
to the house yesterday, and "rip Mr.
Watson up" with "ghoulish glee." "We
have no hesitation," the report says, "in
declaring that the charges in the sense
which the au'.hor intended they should be
believed, are false and libelous under the
strictest legal definition of those terms.".
Where Watson Was Wrong. I
The trouble with Watson's charge, which
occurred in a campaign book, was that it
was too comprehensive. He wrote in the
plural, the report says, and when the
charge was sifted it was found that in
the case of the drunken speaker he had
reference to but one man, and when that
particular case was investigated it was
found that Cobb, on the testimony of
thirty-two witnesses, wasn't drunk at all.
It cast an imputation on the whole house,
while the author admits that the house as
a body is innocent. The charge is a libel
for which the committee is at loss to find
either motive or excuse.
A Ittbuke to the Georgian.
Tbe report recommends the adoption of
a resolution reciting that Watson's
charges are false and constitute an un
warr ented nssault on the honor and digni
ty of the bouse and have the unqualified
disapproval of that body. Grout for the
Republicans submits a minority report
declaring that the charges are unfounded
and to say the least a gross exaggeration,
hardly pardonable by reason of the lie
cense of debate. The recommendation is
that if Watr-en will withdraw and apolo
gize the resolution in the majority report
be not adopted.
