BIGGER lEMI DEBATED
HI JR. HALE OPPOSES IT.
Fights Bill Providing More Men for
Coast Artillery.
ryv—n The Trlbun* Bureau.]
"Washington, Dec, 18.— Senators Warren and
Hale took the principal parts la a brief Senate
debate to-day, which Is regarded as highly *'»
nlncant by those who are prone to look below
the surface and especially to try to see the mind
Of the President in things which appear to pave
the way for the rnrryin - Into effect of executive
recommendations.
As the Senate was attempting to clear Its cal
endar, the bill providing for an Increase In the
coast artillery was called, and Senator Warren
tirped Ita Immediate consideration and passage.
Senator Hale objected. Fayinjj that the army was
larg-e enough and that he was opposed to fur
ther Increasing the military establishment. Mr.
■Warren retorted that It was useless for Con
gress to pn on adding to the fortifications of the
country if M was bbsiUlli»c to provide tho men
necessary to man the defences and operate tho
guns which at proat expense are being constant
ly mounted along the coasts. Tho Senators
sparred for some little time, and tho bill finally
went over for future consideration, but not until
Senator Warren had demonstrated that ho was
In earnest In his intention of pressing its cas
aar?.
From what was said. Smtitors believe that the
<£airraan of the- Committee on Military Affairs
means that he will oppose the provisions of the
Fortifications Appropriation bill, in which many
Senators who find it expedient to secure large
appropriations for thrir respective states are in
terested, unless Ihe Smato will pass the bill In
creasing the artillery, and it Is not thought like
ly that Senators who are interested In fortifica
tions appropriations will carry their opposition
to the other mr-asure so far as to Jeopardize a
till In which their co'.istitutcnts : ■'■ •■•■ ■ deep and
abiding interest. It will be remembered that In
his annual message the President devoted con
dderable space to the npccssity of providing ad
ditional coast artillery forces it man the fortifi
cations already in existence.
In the debate Mr. Warren remarked that he
■houM presß this bill to a vote before the Forti
fications Appropriation bill came up. as he be
lieved it useless to arpropriata between $0,000.
000 and £15.000.000 a year to Increase tho fortl
flcutlons of the country and then fail to provide
teen to properly man them.
"We now have thn-e kut.s to every man," he
remarked, "it::d have expended moro than $100.
000,000 In carrying out the t-rheme of fcrtinca
tionß recommended by the Endicott Heard, and
yet have nia-de no ir.ciease in tho artillery
corps."
"Th<» Senator ought to have added." inter
rupted fior.ntor Hale, that we have no
enemies," Mr. Hale eaid that the argument of
the erir.y had been "that you couid not have
en army wiUiout guns, and when the guns are
eupi'lifd fhfy turn about ur.d say what la the
-..-.-■ without
tr.en?"
"It Is a constant pressure on the part of the
array to aggrandize itself." he continued, "first
Jfor men urA then for guns. There is no end
to it."
Senator Warren PiiegePtel that he would like
to hear from Mr. Kale regarding the navy, as
Mr. Hnle was a member of the Xaval Commit
tee, nnd ns the annual Increase for the navy
\vns from S10.«m0,000 to $20,000,000.
"Th<» Senator is rlelit," responded Mr. Hal*.
The dteeasa is Just as d<v>p in the navy, and I
am inclined to think d^per than it is In the
trmy. I have triod for years and ehnll try
egaln this year to keep down naval expenditures.
J3ut Ihe military establishments axe alike. Each
is seeking to ruTcrar.dize itself.
"I don't purpose tht» people of tho country ap
prer!ate it — I don't know that the Senate does —
that two-thirds of the revenues r,f the <-<v>nlry
to-day are devoted to tho payment of tho hur
ders of pnst wnrs, like pensions, and expendi
tures in vir-w cf future wars. Of al! the taxes
that are laid, and all tha revenues collected.
Dearly two-thirds are expended for the military.
in r broad way."
Frr.ator Pcott observed that during: the summer
be h;ul visited nlno coast fortifications and
found the big, new, exper.sive guns sewed up in
canvas, nff<--r having >>eer. rubhr-d in vaseline. He
Bnouid demand that rorae measure be passr-d to
eeeure ;>.d r -qunie care of these guns, or thru no
further expense be incurred in that direction, he
paid.

Minneapolis, Dee. 18.— The second day of th©
Interstate Commerce CommlFsion inquiry Into
rfbrthwast transportation conditions toroucM out
facts of flrpt Importance relative to the efforts
upun Qm oovntry of the grain blockade. Tho
commission had given over tht» first duy vrry
larpHy to tho fuel Inquiry, with the Idea of re
llewfag fljstness. and to this end had pent tele
grams of inquiry to many points, asklnp as to
the coal supply and how long It would last.
Telegrams began to pour In to-day, and when
re;.resfiital!vos wore In from over twenty towns
It was dear that the commission had acted none
too quickly In obtaining the promise of co
• :on on the pan of the coal companies and
the railroads In relieving distress, for in come
parts of the country farmers have been burning:
their femes and outbuildings, and In other towns
piles cf valuable lumber were cut up Into fuel
to keep people from freezing.
The Carmen got into the inquiry later. They
came in numbers from Xorth Dakota and told
tho commission the ttory of the effect of the
'.c upon the price of wheat. They eaid
prioee had been depressed abnormally because
elevmtora were full, that wheat lay on the
ground at many points, that there was no open
market, ;>nd the farmers had cither to eacrinV6

COXFEItS ABOUT CARS.
President Tells Senator Ilansbrough
He Will Take Up Question.
Washington. Dec. IS.— A conference at the
White House to-day Indicated that the Presi
dent Js taking great Interest in proposals for a
legislative remedy for the car shortage which
has been causing a fuel and food famine In the
Northwest. The President sent for Senator
Hansbrouph. and asked him whether the actual
Hanger of suffering was so great as has been
reported. The North Dakota Senator said that
from dispatches he has received, conditions In
us state, Minnesota and South Dakota had not
been exaggerated. The President promised to
give the question his personal attention, with a
view to alleviating any immediate suffering:, and
said he desired Senator Hansbrough to devote
time and thought to some remedy to avoid a re
currence of present conditions.
The plan Senator llansbrou£h has In mind Is
tho Mage of a law which would compel the
railroads to anticipate extraordinary movements
of fuel, grain or other commodities and to pre
rare to take care of such shipments when they
are offered. It has been suggested that the
Interstate Commerce Commission could Investi
gate probable excessive offerings for shipment
of commodities of all kinds and compel the rail
roads to furnish the- transportation. It Is be*
lleved by tenator Hansbrough that If a law of
tins character were passed the railroads would
lw> able to contract for the use of equipment
from roads In the South and other parts of tho
country when tho demand for rolling stock Is
not great during the winter or the crop moving
Beaaona The North Dakota Senator will en
deavor to perfect a measure of come character
calculated to reach the evil which annually re
eults in Immense financial loss to the farmer be
cause of not -being able to market his crop, and
actual Bufffiinji in winter by reason of not being
able to get fueL
Interstate Commerce Commissioner Clark ap
peared before the House Committee on Public
I^ands to-day In support of the President's su£
eestlon that the government cease to sell coal
lands and lease them hereafter to mining com
panies. He reiterated his charge that great
corporations in league with railroads have "cox
nered" coal lands nnd forced the prices up to
an unreasonably high point
When asked as to the present difficulty in
getting cars. Mr. Clark replied that in his opin
ion Shippers wore as much to blame as carriers
He Raid thousands of cars are delayed unneces
sarily In lai . ■ centres by the failure of reoeivrs
to unload thorn promptly. In Mr. Clark's opinion
railways are buying cars and locomotives as
rapidly as they can get them.
ST. LOUIS INVESTIGATION BEGINS.
American Car and Foundry Company's Out
put Mortgaged for Nine Months.
'St Louis, Dec. IS.— Interstate Commerce
Commission convened in the Federal Building
to-day and began an investigation Into the
shortage of freight cars. The hearing is ex
pected to end to-morrow afternoon, when th«
members of the commission will go to Kansas
City and resume the Investigation.
Commissioner C. A. Prouty presided, and wit
nesses were examined by P. J. Parrell, attorney
for tho commission. Vice-President Mcßi of
the American Car and Foundry Company testi
fied that the manufacture of cars had increased
17> per cent In quantity and &0 per cent in qual
ity in the last few years.
Mr. Mcßrlde said his company was about six
weeks behind in deliveries, and that the capac
ity of the plant was mortgaged for future deliv
ery about nine months.
The witness said his company shipped B.GII
cars in October, 7.600 in November and would
ship boo in December. He continued:
"I think the roads would place a great many
more orders if they could get prompt delivery.
We could manufacture 15 per cent more can if
we could get the material and labor. Wo have
as much difficulty In getting labor as material.
Tho material wo find most difficult to get is
lumber."

bermen's Club asked to be beard. C. 11. Hen

INSUFFICIENT YARDAGE ONE CAUBE.
Kansas City, Mo., Dec. "The Journal" says to
day that lack not only of cars and locomotives, but
insufficient yardage, warehouses and elevators are
the causes that have brought about freight con
gestion In Kansas City and probably elsewhere.
Every freight house In Kansas City is gorged and
every storage track i 3 crowded. As many cars are.
waiting to be unloaded as are waiting to be loaded.
The loads cannot be dumped on the ground, and the
empties cannot be loaded faster than about bo
many a day. The roads are frequently forced to
order cars brought to Kansas City instantly, with
out waiting for loads, because when the loads ar
rive here there is no place to put them. Ware
houses end elevators must bo emptied before they
car. be refilled.

Eleventh. Avenue Committee Protests Against
Further Hearings.
H. G. Schneider, chairman of the Eleventh Ave
nue Track Removal Committee, which is made up
of residents and merchants of -the "infected dis
trict," sent yesterday an open letter to Mayor
McClellan and the Board of Estimate and Appor
tionment calling attention to the fact that De
cember 21, the day set for a hearing on the removal
of the tracks from Twelfth avenue between 68th
and GOth streets, 13 the day on which the road has
been ordered to remove those tracks. He asked if
this was going to be construed as another delay In
the railroad's favor, allowing it to drag along its
proceedings until January, when it could pet the
Baxe-Stanley law amended. His letter continues:
Wo ask for on immediate opinion by the Corpora
tion Counsel as to the validity of all the rights and
franchises of this railroad to the public streets
enumerated in Chief Engineer Rice's report and.
abov« all, that you do not by action, except to
insist on track removal, imperil the city's unques
tioned right to Eleventh avenue as a route for a
subway to relieve the congestion and give real
rapid transit to tho long neglected section of the
West Bids or worse to preclude criminal prosecu
tion of this railroad for Its illegal seizure of our
people's streets. We have found the State Rail
road Commission openly favoring the road at the
expense of the people's rights to use their own
streets, and the long delay of the Rapid Transit
Commission helping the road; now your action
could prevent prosecution and legalize Its theft of
the upper end of Twelfth avenue.
THAW TRIAL SET FOR JANTTAKY 21.
Date Hastened by Application of Counsel —
May Come Before Fitzgerald.
The trial of Harry Kendall Thaw for the murder
of Stanford White was set yesterday for Monday,
January 21. in the Criminal Branch of the Supreme
Court. This date was fixed by Justice Newburser
when the motion for the dismissal of the indict
ment against Thaw or the appointing of a date for
the trial was to have been argued.
Clifford W. Hartridgs and John B. Gleason ap
peared for Thaw. The District Attorney's office
was represented by Acting District Attorney
■'Smyth.
Thaw's counsel withdrew their demand for the
taking of testimony by commissions. It is believed
that the sentiment of Thaw himself sras the culmi
nating point in their conviction that they bad bet
ter make haste. Justice Fitzgerald la assigned to
the Criminal Branch < i" the Supreme Court for the
January Term. but It is not at nil certain th.it ho
will try the case.
