First Session of 36th Congress
Erouglit to a Close.
Washington, June 8. Congress ad
Jo.imcd sine die at 5 o'clock yesterday
afternoon. For the senate- it was a
Jay of nailing. The naval appropria
tion (.ill the stumbling block to final
adjournment cou'd not be agreed to
by the conferees of the two houses, and
tr.e disagreement was reported to the
senate early In the day. The report
as accepted by the senate, which re
fused to request another conference,
although Mr.- Hale expressed the belief
that an agreement might be reached.
At ?, o'clock, after several recesses had
t-en taken it became known to the sen
ate that th? house had concurred in. the
senate amrdnvnt remaining in con
troversy, and F'.n afterward the house
resolution providing for final adjourn
ment was pa?s'd. an amendment fixing
the b'Mjr at 5 o'clock. June 7.
It was not until 4:1) o'clock, twenty
minutes before the h.iur fixed for ad-j'-urnmer.t,
that th pr-sident pro tern, j
11? the senate, Mr. Fry-. a:lixed his sig- j
nature to the naval bill. j
With some other measures it was hur
ried to the president, who was in wait- j
irs in his nwm at the capitol and was i
e lined ty him a few minutes later. I
Tie concluding hour f the session
was purely a social ses.-ion. No busi- I
r.ess L 'Vi n i the udptlni of the cus-
torvary resolution of thanks to the j
chair (Mr. Frye) was accomplished. !
In a knowiadgnv-nt of the compli- j
nv-T.t Mr. Fry d-livered a brief and j
graceful speech, which was received j
wsth cordial applause throughout the i
chamber. j
The conclusion of the work of the i

session, and when the gavel fell finally
expressions of relief and gladness were
heard from all senators.
IN THE HOUSE
Washington, June S.Ia marked con
trast with the exciting scenes attend
ing the bitter struggles of the closin
hours of the session, Speaker Hender
son laid down his gavel at 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon at the conclusion
of one of the most picturesque scenes
which has ever occurred in the hall of
representatives. During a brief recess
taken n-ithin 20 minutes of the time
fixed for the final adjournment to give
the president an opportunity to affix
his signature to the bills that were be
ing rushed to him for approval, a
group of members, led by Mr. Mercer
(Xev.i, Mr. Fail (Tex), Mr. Fitzger
ald (Mais.) and Mr. Tawney (Minn.)
congregated in the area to the left of
the speaker's rostrum and began sing
ing patriotic ail's. The galleries were
banked to the doors. "Columbia. Gem
of the Ocean," "Auld Lang Syne,"
"The Red, White and Blue." succes
sively rang out. As the singing pro
ceeded members joined the group until
without regard to age or party the en
tire membership of the house joined in
the chorus. The spectators in the gal
leries applauded each song until the
strains cf "Dixie" filled the hall. Then
their unbounded enthusiasm broke out
in wild cheers. But the enthusiasm
"Dixie" evoked was not to be compared
with the remarkable demonstration
wliich followed when, in a clear, ring
ing tenor. Mr. Fitzgerald (Mass.) start
ed the national anthem with the in
spiring words "Through the dawn's
eariy light"
The principal feature of the closing
day in the house was the reversal of its
action in turning down the conferees on
the naval bill for yielding on the item
relating to ocean surveys. Over night
the sentiment of the house underwent
a complete change and the members
voted by a. large majority to accept
outright the senate amendment, which
goes much further than the compro
mise which the conferees offered. The
new conferees. led by Mr. Cannon, who
ha 1 brought in a
compromise which
tney conisuered more satisfactory, were
itmiminiously pushed aside. It was a
distinct victory for the old conferees.
Messrs. Foss (111 ), Dawson (W. Va.),
and Cummings X. T.). The other fea
ture of the closing day was the course
of Mr. Lentz (O.) in blocking unani
mous consent legislation. For three
days he has objected to bills because
the majority would, not allow the tes
timony in the Coeur d'Alene investiga
tion to be printed, and he maintained
his position to the end.

BIBLE FOR RAIL ROAD MEN.
One Presented to Santa Fe Engineers
and Firemen Shows Result of Use.
A table in the reading room of the en
gineers and firemen of the Santa Fe in
this city is piled high with technical pa
pers and magazines. The only book to
be found on the table is a Bible. The
book appears to have had considerable
use, although it has not been the pro
perty of the reading room for a very
great length of time.
" The book is an International Teachers"
Bible with a concordance, references,
and helps, together with a full set of
maps. On the front fly leaf is found the
following:
The A. T. & S. F. Railroad Engineers

This Bible is presented for the use of
the men using this room, by a feilow
railroad man in the hope that it may in
terest, instruct, or help while away a
lonely hour, with the fervent wish that
we who have to take our lives in our
hands and the lives of our fellow be
ines, may realize our responsibilities
and be preserved from all harm.
With the best wishes and kindest re

BOERS AND UNION PACIFIC.
Representative Wes3els"Will Lay Pro
posals Before His People.
Chicago, June 8. A vigorous effort is
being made by officials of the Union Fa-
cific Railway company to induce Boers
to come to this country and settle on
the cheap lands owned by the corpora
tion along its lines in Kansas, Nebraska,
Wyoming and other western states. C.
E. W antland, one or tne chief land
agents of the company, visited Wash
ington during the recent stay of the en
voys in that city and conferred with
thern. it is said, regarding the com
pany's colonization scheme.
Mr. Wantland, who is of Dutch an
cestry, is confident that thousands of
the farmers of the Transvaal will come
to the United States rather than submit
to British rule if the result of the pres
ent war favors the latter nation. The
railroad company has promised to re
fund all railroad fares paid by the Boers
from any port in the country to he
western lands provided the ticket pur
chaser buys 320 acres of land.
It is understood that the Boers in the
Transvaal will leave there if their in
dependence is taken from them and fa
vorable offers from this country would
be listened to eagerly, according to the
Boer envoys. Mr. Wessels, one of the
representatives of the South African
Republic, said yesterday: "While we
believe that the Boers win obtain free
dom, or at least partial freedom, within
a year or so, if not at once, we are very
uncertain as to the future. If anv def
inite offer is made to us as the official
representatives cf the people in South
Africa we shall be glad to lay it before
them and give them an- opportunity to
aeciae wnetner tney wish, to come to
America or not."

ger trains and riding out to the repair
shop suburbs. These trips continue dur

thoroughly accustomed to stealing they
begin to extend their journeys. Becom
ing braver they make a run to Color

Senatorial Question
Investigation
Behind
OFFICIAL FOR BURTON.
Senator Eater's Friends Are
Consequently Aggrieved.
Charges Were Preferred by A.
E. Greene of Lecompton.
The Sixth congressional district Re
publicans have been involved for some
weeks in a quarrel over Cyrus Ander
son, receiver of the United States land
office at Colby, an effort being made to
have Anderson removed from office.
The quarrel has ended by the report
of Commissioner Bingham Herman of
the general land office, who has sustain
ed Anderson and finds that the receiver
is not guilty of the charges. The
charges were made by A. R. Greene of
Lecompton, an examiner for the land
offices. A dispatch from Washington
tells the following story of the trou
ble:
"The fight was opened on Anderson
by Greene on March 8. In a report to
the department he made several charges
against the receiver, among others
that the receiver was absent from his
office without leave, that he permitted
his clerk to sign his name to important
official documents, that he made fase
certificates, and that he was in col
lusion with other parties to secure gov
ernment land for his own use for a
small amount In support of the charges
an affidavit of a former clerk in the
office, A. L, Rich, was tiled by the in
spector. "Receiver Anderson was notified of
the charges preferred against him and
in reply denied each and every one ex
cept the one charging him with absent
ing himself from office without leave.
He also produced an affidavit from A.
L. Rich which placed Inspector Greene
in an embarrassing situation. In this
affidavit Rich swore that he was in
duced by Greene to sign the first affi
davit; that he did not know what it
contained as he read it over very hur
riedly; that in consideration of his
signing it Greene and P.egister Will
coxson promised to see that he was re
instated in the civil service and station
ed at New Orleans at $1,200 per year.
Rich produced a letter from Wllicoxson
in which the latter said that Senator
Baker, 'being at the head of the civil
service committee, can fix matters O.
K., and that he (Willcoxson) 'could
always get help from Senator Baker
when every one else fails.'
"From a Kansan now holding a posi
tion here, but n ho keeps in close touch
with polities at home, it is asserted
that the movement to remove Anderson
due to the senatorial squabble in
that state. Senator Baker named An
derson for receiver of the Colby land
office. Anderson is now working for
J. R. Burton. Greene also owes his
appointment to Senator Baker and, in
order to punish Anderson for his in
gratitude towards Baker, concluded to
have him removed rrom otnee. sut
Commissioner Hermann, of the general
land office, stood by Anderson.
"A supplemental charge was made
th.tf Anderson was a hard drinker. To
offset this, affidavits w-ere produced to
show that Anderson had always been
a total abstainer; that he does rot even.
know what liquor tastes like, and its
hilarious effect is a stranger to him.
"In his report to the secretary of the
interior, the land commissioner re
views all of the evidence submitted in
the case at length.
"Neglect of duty, habitual careless
ness and absence without leave formed
the basis of charges 1 and 2. Speak
ing of them, the land commissioner
says:
"The Inspector's specifications of
these charges are that the receiver was
absent from his office about one-fifth
of the time when he should have been
there, that he was grossly careless in
his handling of important official pa
pers, and that he permitted his clerk to
sign his name to receipts which he
should have signed himself. In sup
port of these, the inspector presented
the atfidavit or A. l. Kicn. a ion-mer
clerk In the office. No other testi
mony was adduced. In his affidavit
Rich declared that the receiver would
absent himself for intervals of three
and four days at a time; that he was
away fully one-fifth or the time and
that, on one occasion, a whole day was
spent in searching for a homestead ap
plication which tne receiver nan mis-
id. This office is now in receipt or
an afnnavit trora Air. Kicn iu wmcn
he says the Inspector Greene called
at his office on Marcn Lo last ana re

week later, when he consented to make
it, after being urgently requested to
do so by th" inspector and Register
Willcoxson of the Colby land office, and

influenced in the matter." The affida
vit, he says, was prepared by In
spector Greene and he signed it with
out reading it carefully. He asked to
modify his first sworn, statement so
that it w-ould read that Receiver An
derson was not absent over four or"
five days a month, including the time ,
lost on account of the severe sickness
of the receiver. In the matter of care
lessness, he declared that it was stated
in an unfair manner and that Mr. An
derson was as painstaking as any re
ceiver ever was. The records show
that the receiver was absent probably
fifty days in the twenty-six - months.
He admits that he did wrong in ab
senting himself without leave, and
while he disclaims any attempt to jus
tf his acts he says that other officers
of his acquaintance had done the same
thing.
"As to' tW charge of neglect of duty
and habitual carelessness it is recalled
that Mr. Greene has failed to find or re
port any fact" from the records of his
office which show that the receiver has
faiied to perform his entire duties. The
Coiby land office has been inspected four
times by Inspector Greene. In his report
on August 1. Isito. the inspector said: 'The
hooks r,f the receiver are fairly well kept,
the officers devote their entire time to
their official duties and are capable and
deserving men.'
"On May 11. 1SW, the inspector 'found
the receiver on duty and hard at work.
The office was in good shape.'
On December 4. the inspector in his re
port said: 'The management of the of
fice is good, the officers are faithful and
capable, and the work is in fine condition
in the office.'
"In his report on March 8. Inspector
Greene says, among other things: 'The
business of the office is well in hand, anci
the volume is large. Only by the indefa
tigable work ot the register has it ben
possible to keep up the current work. I
disiike exceedingly to except the receiver
from this statement, but he is not atten
tive to his duties and is derelict in other
respects.' But the inspector fails to men
tion any fact disclosed by the records of
the office which in any way supports this
assertion. He neither gives the source of
his information nor afterward supports
his charges by the testimony of any othr
person except Rich, who, in a second affi-
davit, discredits his own statements made
in the first one. There is nothing in the
charge- that the receiver permitted his
clerk to sig-n his name to important tesral
documents. The clerk only signed his
name to unimportant matters, such as is
the custom in every office of trust.
"As to the fourth charge, that the re-
ceiver made false certificates, in that he
signed weekly statements of cash in blank
for ue during his absence, it can not be
sustained
The f'fth charge, that the receiver was
guilty of collusion with an applicant for
the purchase of lands for his own u?" and
benefit contrary to law. was also explain
ed satisfactorily and dismissed.
