WASHINGTON. May 23. A couple of
dozen angry senators. Democrats and Re
publicans, argued and schemed lor an hour
this afternoon endeavoring to frame a
rlan to chastise the House for sending to
the Senate an Instructed conference com
mittee. They did not agree on a plan and
will take the matter up Monday. The con
ference committee referred to Is one which
was instructed to disagree to the Senate
amendment to the army appropriation bill,
a portion of which provides for the sale
of the Indianapolis arsenal and the pur
chase of military post grounds there.
When the senators learned of the action
of the llo'ise and the ppeeceh of Repre
sentative Hcmenway in which he said that
it was high time for the House to demon
strate to the Senate that they had rights,
they were very Indignant, as stated in
Wednesday's Journal. They have been
talking about the resolution ever since
and when Senator Proctor made a motion
that a conference committee be appointed
by the Senate there was a general uprising.
Spooner made a strong protest, Foraker
wanted to ignore the House request and
refuse to appoint a conference committee,
as did many others, but Hoar thought bet
ter and submitted a motion asking the
House to give the Senate a full and free
conference, which was impossible &3 long
as the House conferees were instructed, a
proceeding which was unheard of until ten
days ago. when the House sent an Instruct
ed committee to the Senate. Messrs. Al
lison, Tettus, Teller and others expressed
their displeasure over the action of the
House, but before a vote was taken the
time for taking up the Philippine bill ar
The Fresldent has revoked the old execu

lieutenant general commanding the army
(General Miles) and the adjutant general
(General Corbin in turn are to assume the
duties of secretary of war in the absence
of the secretary and the assistant secre
tary. The President's order of revocation,
which is dated yesterday, leaves the depart-m-nt
without a head in the event of the
shtsence of the secretary and nsslstant sec
retary, unless such head is specifically dts
lcnated on tarn occasion. Hoth the secre

secretary of war." It Is presumed that
similar special orders will be made desig
nating Mr. Schofield to perform these duties
whenever the secretary and assistant sec
retary are absent in the future.
Secretary Root has issued an order which
revives an old order of Jan. IS. 1SS6, provid
ing that in the absence of the head of a
bureau the senior officer of the department
or corps on duty In the bureau shall as
sume temporary charge. The significance
of the order lies in the limitation "on duty
in the bureau." Under the application of
this limitation no officer on duty outside
of the bureau could assume charge, as does
Colonel Ward, of General Mlles's headquar
ters, in the case of the adjutant general's
office, but General Corbin's duties would
ordinarily be assumed by Colonel Carter.

Representative Stephens, of Texas, to
day introduced a resolution that is directly
aimed at the tender of a monument of
Frederick the Great to the United States.
It sets forth that the United States should
not accept from any foreign nation or erect
In any public place any statue of any King,
Emperor, prince or potentate who has
ruled or is now ruling any nation by the
supposed divine right of kings. The reso
lution further sets forth that the accept
ance of such a statue by this government
would be a repudiation of its basic princi
ples as enunciated in the bill of rights and
Constitution, an insult to the memories of
our revolutionary fathers, an admission
that one man may govern a nation without
the consent of the governed, and after his
death have his stntue erected in our He
public and the blessings of the divine right
of kings to rule thereby approved.
W. P. Hinds, first vice president of the
Louisville & Nashville Railroad, appeared
before the interstate and foreign commerce
committee of the House to-day in opposi
tion to the bill to extend the powers of the
Int?rstate-commerce Commission. He said
the bill gave entirely too great a power to
the commission and would interlere seri
ously with the development of railroad
properties. The tendency of the times, he
said, was toward a reduction in rates.
The Senate committee on judiciary to-day
amended the conspiracy bill passed by the
House so as to read: "That no agree
ment, combination or contract not involv
ing injury to property or a breach of the
peace by or between two or more persons
to do or procure to be done, or not to do or

and another, or between any Territory or

District of Columbia, or with foreign na

and any State or States or foreign nations,
shall be deemed criminal, nor shall those
engaged therein be indictable or otherwise

Mr. RooseTelt Respond In a Pretty
Speech and Drinks to the Health
of President Loubet.
ANNAPOLIS. Md.. May 23. The luncheon
given to-day on board the French battle
ship Gaulois in honor of President Roose
velt was one of the most memorable inci
dents of the visit of the distinguished
French soldiers and sailors to this country
who are here to join in the celebration of
the unveiling of the monument to the
memory of General Rochambeau, which
takes place in Washington to-morrow.
The chief guest of honor at the table
next to President Roosevelt was Governor
Smith, of Maryland, who was assigned a
seat near the chief magistrate. Admiral
Dewey sat next to Governor Smith. Imme
diately opposite the President was Mme.
Cambon, wife of the French ambassador,
and on his right Mrs. Root, wife of the
secretary of war, and on his left Mrs.
Lodge, wife of the Massachusetts senator.
Next to Mrs. Lodge was General Brugere,
commander of the French armies, and to
the left of Mrs. Lodge was Admiral Four
nier, inspector general of the French navy.
After the delicacies of a choice French
menu had been discussed Ambassador Cam
bon arose and in the name of President
Loubet of the French republic bid a hearty
welcome to all who were present. He was
especially complimentary In his allusions to
President Roosevelt, in whose hands, he
said, the precious liberties of the American
people were safe. He concluded by offer
ing a toast "to the President of the
glorious American Republic, which had set
the example of popular liberty not only for
France, but for the wide world."
President Roosevelt replied in his hap
piest manner, though speaking with un
usual deliberation as though he measured
every word he uttered. After expressing
the appreciation of the American people
for the friendly spirit whicn prompted the
sending of a battleship and so many illus
trious soldiers and sailors to the unveiling
of the Rochambeau statue the President
"Mr. Ambassador, we appreciate what
France has done in sending to our shores
on this occasion such a magnificent war
ship, and we appreciate the choice of those
who were sent here; and, Mr. Cambon, we
thank you for your happy good judgment
in selecting such an illustrious commander
of the army and navy to send to us on the
auspicious occasion of the unveiling of the
Rochambeau statue. One hundred and
twenty years ago the valor of the soldiers
and sailors of France exerted, according to
the Judgment of historians, the determin
ing Influence in making this country a free
and independent country, and because of
that France must always occupy a cher
ished place in our hearts. Mr. Ambassa
dor, I thank you personally for the cour
tesy which has been extended to me. It
has been a source of valued information to
be permitted to see and inspect this splen
did French vessel, and I have been duly
impressed by its superior mechanism and
by the superior physique and discipline of
your men. I am sure I speak for the
American navy when I say it has been a
source of pleasure that such a splendid
specimen of French naval architecture as
the Gaulois has visited our shores on such
a friendly mission, and in its name I thank
you. Let me, on behalf of all the people
of the United States, and with the certain
conviction that I have expressed their sen
timents, drink to the health of President
Loubet and to the continued prosperity of
the mighty nation of which he is Pres
ident." General Brugere followed with a felicitous
speech, concluding, with a toast to the mem
ories of Rochambeau and Washington,
which was drunk standing, as were all the
Secretary of War Root delivered a brief
but happy address, in which he reminded
his hearers that the Gaulois then rested on
the same waters which washed the shores
of Yorktown. In conclusion he offered the
following pretty toast: "I drink to the
army of France, ever faithful and gentle
in friendship, ever fearless and gallant in
Admiral Fournier and Secretary of the
Navy Moody spoke next. Ambassador
Cambon concluded the speech-making by
again arising and dwelling upon the chival
rous character of the American people.
"I now propose a toast." said he. "to Mrs.
Roosevelt, the first lady of the land." a
proposition which elicited a most enthusi
The company then arose and the Presi
dent, accompanied by his daughter and
Secretaries Root and Moody and their
wives and Mrs. Lodge and a few others,
went to his launch, which was in waiting.
As he proceeded to the Dolphin, which was
lying near by to take him to Annapolis, a
salute of twenty-one guns was fired. Im
mediately thereafter another launch, con
taining General Miles. Governor Smith. Am
bassador to France Porter, General Corbin
and others, left for the Standish, which
was to take them to the Annapolis wharf.
As the Standish steamed away the Gaulois
fired a salute In honor of Governor Smith
and General Miles. President Roosevelt left
Annapolis on the 4:30 train for Washington.
