HER PORTION OF DEBT OUT
STANDING WHEN STATES
REPORT TC) COURT
Based Settlement on - Contract
Arising Ont of Constitution
Adopted in 1863.
(Dy UtoeUtwI Frc??.)
WASHINGTON. 'Jan. 22.-West
Virginia's share of the debt .outstand
ing against Virginia when thc States
separated in 1861 waa fixed in a spe
cial master's report to the supreme
court today at more than SI 2,000,000,
The report,^ presented by Special
Master Charles E. Llttlefleld after a
long series ot hearings, is expected
to be made the order of the court.
The court held in'lilli that West
Virginia must pay $7,100,000 of the
principal ot the debt, which totalled
$33,000,000. The questions cf Inter
est and participation in Virginia's as
sets In 1861 were not decided.
The special master reported that
Weat Virgina was entitled , lo share
to the extent of SMQO.ObO, minus
some $500,000 already .paid. In the
Virgina sinking fund and turnpike end
railroad bonds on which the debt wat
based and which were valued ai a to
tal of $14,000,000. He also-held, how
ever, that West Virginia must pay not
only the $7,100,000 principal, designat
ed in tho court's dov?co. hut interest
on it from 1861. Representatives oj
West Virginia tonight estimated that
Interest at $8,000,000; bondholders
claim lt will amount to $14,000,000.
"I believe that the provision to* thc
sinking fund was Intended to
?B^?|jfc y^rtty pf .?trtttrtHri^M-c ftnti
ffffPHp^?aid' the matter, referring
to a provision in the Weat Virginia
constitution, "and that the same wisc
provision that applied thereto before
the separation and that the 'accru
ing interest' for which Weat Virginia
was bound to provide and which she
was required to assume by the con
tract, was the 'accruing interest' or
tba erleting debt. a'.*4?nc*>d hy the
terms of us bonds, making the amount
not only definite and certain, but un
inseparable part of debt itself. If
this construction is correct, West
Virginia Would be liable for 23 l-l
per cent, (the ratio of West Vir
ginia's resources to those of Virginia)
of 'accruing interest* of such portion
Df debt aa she ultimately turns, out to
be liable to pay."
Virginia'- suit to compel West Vir
ginia to assume a share of the 1861
gebt was begun In the supreme court
in 1907. The, 1911 decision left ad
tustment regarding Interest and par
ticipation in assets to the States them
selves. After a Joint commission'rep
resenting them failed to aeree. Vir
ginia asked the .court in 19?1 to en
ter a final decree in the case.
Wost Wglnta at the same tim?
laked to be allowed to share In thc
Virginia assets at the date of separa
tion and Virginia' asked" that West
Virginia be compelled to nay Interest
from that date. West Virginia held
lt should pay Interest only from thc
late of the court's final decree. Mr.
LittlefieM criticised that contention.

WASHINGTON. Jan, 22.-For more
than three hours today President
Wilson listened, to appeals that he sign
the Immigration bill and pleas that
be vpto lt, voiced by spokesmen ot 500
men and women who packed the Bast
room of-the White House.
The speakers were labor . leaders,
publicists, social workers, students
and others, most ot them contending
tor'or against the literacy test. Those
Opposed to the bill declared the lit
eracy teat and others of its restrictive
features are not true tests of the fit
ness of an Immigrant; those advocating
the bill argued such restrictions were
needed to preserve the standards ol
life ot American working men.
At .the conclusion of the argumenta
President Wilson said he would 'act
on the bill soon. Unless he signs ox
vot?os it by midnight Thursday it will
become a law without his signature.
T'JO president has indicated strongly,
however, that he will veto the meas
ure because of the literacy test.

otter the president's veto are freely

J. H. Patten, of Farriers' National
Congress ? and the Farmers' National

wanted further restrictions against
immigration before ways of distribut

When Patten charged that many ol
the bill's opponents desired to "PJUS

ped him and asked thai the "question
of motive" be omitted..
The president's approval of. the bill
as a protecUon to American working
men was urged by William M. Clark,
who said he represented organization?
