PASS APPROPRIATION BILL
Oivil Semco Lobalo is Closed , bnt No
Vole is Taken ,
OPPOSITION OVERLOOKS HOUSE RULES
Dt'nlU to iMnke a .Motion to Strike Out
While In Committee of the
Wliolc , nnil All the Talk
c , . I In Wanted.
WASHINGTON , Jen. 11. The civil service
debate , which waa Inaugurated In the house
a week ago , ended today. It opened with o
row , but ended very tamely , There was tiot
even a vote ou the appropriation In the ex
ecutive , legislative and Judicial appropriation
bill. The republicans who are seeking tc
modify or repeal the law decided to let the
debate come to a close today , but It required
the casting vote ot the speaker to accomplish
this.
There are ccanicllng statements as to the
hltuatlon In which the future conduct of the
war against civil service Is left. The oppo
nents ot the law ogrccd that the fight U tc
bo kept up , and It Is positively stated by Mr ,
1'earaon ( rep. . N. C. ) that aasurancrs have
beta received from thcso In authority In the
, hou.3o Hat an opportunity will be glvi'.i In
the future for a bill to modify the law. But
from other sources the statement cannot be
'confirmed.
The dctatooa quite dull until the clcs-
Ing hour , when Mr. Simpson , the Kansas
populist , cnllv ( < ncd It with sonic reference tc
tin ) Ohio senatorial election , Mr. Bailey , the
'democratic leader , made a clear statement
ot tiic minority position , which Indlcateo thai
the minority will vote to repeal , but not tc
inodlty ihu law. The principal speech \vua
made by IMr. Broslus , clulrman ot the civil
service committee , who dcfeitJed the law In
a two-hour speech.
DSU1ATK IS LIMITED.
Mr. Moody ( rep. , tAliss. ) In charge cl
the executive and Judicial approprlatloi
bill , In accordance with the uotlc
given by him yesterday , inovei li
ue house , immediately alter the reading o
the journal , thai all debate on the etvi
Eervlco Item bo closed today at G o'clock
Considerable opposition ua. ) manifested tc
the motion , but the steering committee en <
the republican opponents to the civil acrvlc
law hail agreed ou this program. The an
tagonlmn today to the motion to close de
bate came principally from the democrats
Thu latter were well aupporteJ by the popu
lists and a few republicans who believed th
debate should go on. After ? .ome wrangling
the previous iiucatlcin was ordered on th
dciLanil cf Mr. Moody , but the rising vol
on the motion to clcee the debate was very
closoJ-ajes , ! )2 ; nays , 85 and ou demand o
the democrats the roil wes called.
When the roll call was concluded , th
motion to close debate stood defeated b
six votes. A recapitulation ot the vote wa
callcJ for and It was whispered about tha
assurances had been received from the rule
committee that time would be given for th
consideration of the measure prepared by
itho republican opponents of the law. Thre
republicans then changed their votes , making
It a tie. The speaker announced the vet
125 to 125.
"A tie , " added the speaker , "and the dial
votes aye. " Thus the speaker saved the day
and the motion to close the debate wa
carried.The republicans applauJcd moa
vociferously. The debate was then resumed
Mr. Bioslus , the chairman of the commit
tee on civil service , opened today's debat
with an claborato defense ot the merit sys
tern and an argument for sustaining the law
Mr. Pearson ( rep. . , N. 0. ) asked how tht
statement that the civil service law wa
economical could be reconciled with the fjc
that the employes of thd govurnment had al
moat doubled sli-.co 1893.
BHOSIUS DEFENDS THE LAW.
Mr. Broslus ( rep. , Pa , , denleil , this wa
true. The advocates of the spoils aystcm
hu said , had repeated Uic statement mill
they believe It. Mr. BIOMUS said the power
of the Civil iSenvlco commission were very
limited. They could do little except at tht
direction ot the president and when mem
bers hurled their Javelins they went eve
thu heads of the commission and burlec
themselves In the Hank of thu chief exocu
tlvo. Speaking of Mr. Orosvenor's attacl
on Carl Schurz , 'Mr. flroslus said the lalto
probably threw It aside .after ho had read
it , with Carlisle's remark : "Another fou
chimney caught fire. " Mr. Llrosius spoke
for over two hours.
'Mr. ' McGuIre ( dcm. , Cal. ) defended the las
administration against the charge of whole
ealo lemovals and commended the efficiency
of the service , especially In the publli
printing ofllco , which had been an especla
point of assault from the outside. Ex-Pub
lie Printer Benedict , ho said , had reduced
the force In his otllce from 3,000 to 2,80 (
and had Inaugurated conspicuous reforms.
Ho charged Mr. Landls ( rep. , Iml. ) , who
amused the house several days ago with
some private memoranda of Mr. Bencdlrt'o
secretary , with Juggling and distorting tht
record. Ho read a lutter from Mr. Benedict's
.secretary , who Is now In the classified sc-iv
Ice , challenging some uf Mr. Landts' crate
incuts , and offering to resign If the Indiana
member could substantiate them.
SIMPSON TAKES A TUKN.
After aomo remarks by Messrs. Boll ( pop. ,
Colo. ) and Mr. Eddy ( rep. , Minn. ) , Mr. Simp
son ( pop. , Kan. ) enlivened the closing hour
of the debate with a reference to the sena
torial contest In Ohio. Ho said the debute
had been prolonged whllo the republican *
out io Ohio wero'maklng promises to the
boys In the trenches Inthe Interest of Sen
ator Hanna. It was all u hlutf , &aU Mr.
Simpson , nothing was to bo done , and now !
tlmt Senator Hanna's election was secured
the mask was thrown oft and a vote was tel
l > o taken tonight on this bill. Whether the
house would luvo an opportunity later to
consider a bill for the repeal of the ! nid
would depend ou the speaker , said Mr.
Simpson.
"He Is the whole thing , " exclaimed
Simpson , "acid runs the houao. " 'Laughter. )
"Have you consulted the speaker ? " asked
Mr. Qulgg.
' "No , " replied Mr , Slmpsro , "ho never cca-
sulti mo and I never consult him. "
IMr. alien ( Jem. , Mlra. ) entertained the
honso with one of his short , humorous
pcecliM. .
'Mr. ' Bailey ( dem. , Tex. ) , 1ho loader of the
minority , closed the debate with some re
marks defining the attitude of the democrats.
It was difficult , ho raid , to bcllovo In the
nhicertty of the oflicr side when In one.
breath the republicans avow their adher
ence to the law and In the next demand Its
practical destruction. If the law was good ,
ho eald , It ought to bo extended ; If not It
should bo repealed. TCio democrats , bo said ,
wcro ready to vlpo It oft the statute booki' .
They did not bellevo in llfo tenure. Wiillo
the repeal of the law might turn some of
their friends out of onice , they stood by their
party platform.
With the conclusion of Mr. Calley's re
marks t'ho ' time expired. It was then dis
covered that 'thcBo ' who desired to veto to
etrlko out the appropriation for the Civil
Service commlns-lon had neglected to make
the motion In vomnit'teo of the whole , No
vole , therefore , could be taken aud the bill
waa passed without dlvUlon.

dated January 1. 1893 , continuing In fore *
until December 31. 1S99 , tbo order of Male
25 , 1897 , authorizing certain named rallroii
companies to charge less for the traniporta

There was a great deal of talk on tlu-j
streets yesterday conccniing the request of
.Messrs. Klynn , Wyman and Cressey for a
twenty-five years gas franchise. The manner
In' ' which the request was sprung on the ,
council and the fact that the ordinance
granting the franchise had already been pre
pared , caused a great many people to thlnlt
that It was another case ot sell out am'i
some oven went so far aa to asserti that the
promoters were working In , the Interest ot
the Omaha , Gas company.
As the ordinance was withdrawn when the
fight on technicality In tbo council com
menced the document still remains private
property aud all of the provisions , conces
sions , otc.will not bo known until It Is
properly Introduced ot the next meeting o'
the council. However , the promoters want
a franchise to run twenty-five years nn4
they are willing to pay a royalty of 3 cents
on every thousand feet of gas sold. It Is
stipulated that a plant shall bo erected
within the city limits and that the main ,
offices of the compa-ny shall be maintained *
here. Slorc than this the applicants want !
two years In which to erect the works and
have everything In working order. They
arc willing to give sufficient bond and It Is
asserted that there Is plenty ot money be-
* hlncl the scheme.
Without a doubt the people of South
Omaha would bo pleased to have a gas plant
erected here and a member of the council
speaking about the matter yesterday said
that ho favored the new franchise , provider
a plant for the manufacture of gas would bt
erected here.
John Flyun , one of the promoters , said ho
was in earnest about the matter and thin
there would bu no sell out. He was anxious
to have both kinds of light In this city am ?
he claimed that there was room enough hero
for both electric light and gas companies.
It is not the desire. It Is understood , to In
terfere In any way with the franchise now-
held by the Omaha Gas company and no at
tempt will bo made by the promoters of the
new concern to have the existing franchise
annulled.
These who are In a position to know as
sert that the parties Interested propose mak
ing gas by the recently patented process. It
Is further claimed that by this process gas
can bo made so that there will be a good
profit made at the rate , ot $1 per thousand
feet. By the provisions of the franchise
held 1)y the Omaha Gas company the rate to
ho charged Is $1.50 per thousand feet to pri
vate consumers andi $1 per thousand feet to
the olty. Tlio- new company will , It Is
claimed , sell gas for street lighting pur
poses to the. city for 70 cents per thousand
feet. j
Councllmen Mort and Tralnor arc known
to bo opposed to the new ordinance and Ir ,
Is claimed that Kelly Is on the fence. Thil
promoters , however , assert that when the
time comes they will bo able to muster six-
votes and thus carry the deal through. What
: he mayor will do should the ordinance pasa
, s cot known.

/Managers / of the packing houses hero wore
pleased to learn yeserday through the col
umns ot The neo tint the proposed tax or
i cents per piece for meat Inspection had
jeen abandoned by Secretary Wilson of the
Department of Agriculture. According to
iho plan suggested thla tax was to bo pala
jy packers whoso meats were Inspected IOY
export. It la claimed that the promulgation
of such an order would have proved a sertou.t
drawback to the packers whose export tradu
s extensive. This tax , It is claimed , was tc ,
lave been used to defray the expenses of a
nlcroscoplcal examination ,
At the present time all of the South
Omaha pickers have largo export orders on
mud and an average of 300 pieces are ex
amined a day for the Cudahy houao alone.
The other packers fall slightly below this ,
ait there la more work for the mlcroscoplsta
low than the present force can handle.
In examining a hog for export the gov-
eminent tagger selects thrco samples from
pi-n 3Qima . one from the diaphragm , crio
rom the neck and the other from the loin ,
f evidence of disease Is round In the sain-
ilo first examined the other samples from
ho same animal are not placed under the
ulcroscopcj but should the first samplu
Drove all right the others are examined.
Vhcn a diseased hog Is found It U con-
emncil and thrown Into a rendering vat.
"hcso fjainplcs , when rut from the carcass ,
ro placed In a tin box and numbered to
orrespond with the number placed on the
arcom by the tagger. For the Cudahy house
alone a tax of G cents on each Inspection
would amount to at loist $0,000 u yeir
while , the other houses would be taxed al
most ad much. The income derived fron <
thla proposed tax would have more thai :
paid the expenses of thu microscopical de
partment here , oven with the Increasoi'i
force needed.
