fFYom The Tilhun* Bine* 1
Washington. April 2.
dent learned last nicM from 'he member*
of Congress whom he asked to th« White
House to confer on the prospects Of the
postal savin** bank bill that Its path
through the House- was far from ttSt«a
with roues, and that, if It can bt pACsed
at all. it will be only under the party lash.
To that end a caucus was called, to be
held *s toon as the interstate commerce
1 HI Is passed, at which an effort will be
niid* to reach some form of compromise
between the extreme \lews of ih» Insur
gent*, as nr bodied in the Fenatc I ill and
the conservative vie*? of the regulars
Rcprf^entntive Weeks told th" President
that of the nineteen members of the House
rornmitte* only two. Moaars. Stafford nn<!
M;r«Jv-k. were cordially iti favor of the
ill!, although a majority of the committee
will support It because It was promised in
the national platform and because Mr. Taft
has made I a part of h.s legislative, riio
irn.:r.me. Jt Is believed that a. bill can be
got through the Hou^. but it is not denied
that the. obstacles are not far from In-
M.pcrable. The Senate bill makes It Impos
sii:e for the deposits in the proposed banks
to be Invested in the of the
'i. it* v States, even though they pay an
sn-pl« rate of Interest, except In time ••'
grave emergency. The local bankers, util
izing locai sentiment and the bugaboo «>f
cc-ctrallzatlrn of funds in Wall Street. ha\e
f/c<-e»ded in inciting the insurgents to take
a stand Inimical. in the opinion of the ret;
ulars and of the administration, to the
federal government and to good business
principles. If lag views of the regulars
prevail in he. proposed caucus, it i. feared
the til! will be so amended, by the < limi
nation of the provision for the deposit by
the government cf the postal funds in the
lo<a'i bank?, as to alienate, the suppcrt of
the Insurgents. On the o - he; hard, if to.>
great concession* are m:«de to the insur
gent view, there is danger of alii natlng the
support «'i" the regulars. It is batWeCß this
*?■ yiia and this Ckaryadai that the leaders
must t'f-er, but they have plrdged them
sc^xrs ;o the President to make an earnest
effort, which. In view of their personal at
titude toward the legislation, Is a striking
tribute to the leadership si Mr. Taf». The

ions as to what Attorney General Wick
orsham meant by certain passages in his
nummary of the Glavis charges. This line
of cross-examination continued for three or
four hours. Two of the Democratic mem
bers of the committee took advantage, of
tie dulnf-ss to gn to sleep in their chairs,
while the Republican members amused
themselves writing notes and tilling sto

and then filled In the blank space with
words composed of letters found in the
name of Glavis's attorney. Another mem
bers of the committee drvoteu much of his
time to writing leaotutlopa, which were
passed around the table for inspection.
Among the resolutions which seemed to
meet general approval was the following:

said that Mi Lot* had not accurately

was this: A few days after he was dis

No Progress Made on Interstate
Commerce Bill.
Democrats Hold Up Lodge Res
olution — Crawford Eulo
gises Roosevelt.
[From The Tribune Bureau. 1
Washington. April 22. -Political drhate
held the boards In the Senate to-day, and
as a result no business was transacted,
although the session began an hour In ,•?
vance of the usual meeting; time. The
Lodsre resolution authorizing an expendi
ture of $Co.ooo by the ' select committee
which Is Investigating wages, prices. etc.,
was debated for nearly two hours. The
Democrats are holding up this resolution,
as it gives them an opportunity to make
political speeches on the tariff, the cost
of living and other topics which are Is he
features of the approaching Congress cam
pa'Kn. Senator Hughes, of Colorado,
male the lnnsrest speech on the resolution
to-day, devoting most of his attention to
the tariff question and attempting to point
out that the high cost cf living is due
to the schedules of the Payne law. He
Charged tha members of the committee
with partisan motive*. The Republican
Senators who are supporting the I,od*e
resolution feel that the Democrats are
making little political capital by taking
this kind of procedure, inasmuch as they
are preventing a vote being taken on a
measure which aims to furnish the sinews
of war to enable Congress to get at the
facts as to why prices are high. The reso
lution was laid aside until to-morrow.
When the Lodge resolution was super
seded by the interstate commerce bill
Senator Crawford, of South Dakota,
m::<]»- a loag speech In favor of his amend
ment requiring the Interstate Commerce
Commission to approve traffic agreements
before they become effective. Mr. Crawford
took issue with Senator Cummins and
other critics of his amendment, who have
charged that It is a backward step in the
regulation of interstate curriers. He
quoted ex-Preslilent Roosevelt, President
Taft and the Republican platform in sup
port of his amendment. Mr. Crawford as
serted that Mr. Roosevelt was still a
"living force, notwithstanding he may nor
he President. It makes no difference. he
ndded. ' whethe- he is in the jungles of
Africa or in some discussion In Rome or in
Vienna or Paris or London, he still is a
living force, and I believe he will continue
to be so as long as he lives."
Still a Roosevelt Follower.
Mr. Ciawford further asserted that Mr.
Roosevelt was the foremost figure in the
Tnlted States, and he pave credit to him
for putting more life into the agitation
for railroad legislation than any one else
and forcing Congress* to act. The ex-
President was eulogized as "the bold
knicht" of hi? time, who led the fight for
the reform, and his commendation of the
specific legislation In question was held
up as worthy of all emulation and Imita
tion. 'I have been a follower of Mi and
still am," he declared.
Mr. Crawford quoted from Mr. Roose
velt's messaces and contended that the Re
publican platform of 190S, declaring for
agreements "made subject to the approval
Of IbS Interstate Commerce Commission."
was In accord with Mr, Roosevelt's views.
Senator Clapp pointed out that Mr. Roose
velt's declaration had specifically favored
the "previous" approval of the commission.
Mr. Crawford asserted that no lawyer of
standing would contend that under the
pending amendment working agreements
subject to the approval of the commission
would be effective without such approval.
Mr. Claap said that both Senators Al
clrich and Elkins had so construed the
possibilities, but in reply to a question from
Mr Crawford Mr. Klkins said he had been
incorrectly quoted.
Mr. Aldrich was not then in the chamber.

Mr Crawford siid thit he and the mi

of having the commission pass on every

His Lawyers Attack Governor
Hughes's Opinion.
Both Sides to Submit Brief 3
Next Friday — Pittsburg
Jury Disagrees.
Judge Holt. In the United State* Circuit
Court, decided yesterday to have the counsel
who are fighting for and against the ex
tradition of Prank N Hoflstot. wanted In
Pittsburff on a conspiracy charge in ton
nection with the bribery of aldermen, sub
mit briefs next Friday. Mr. Hoftstot Is the
president of the Pressed Steel Car Com
pany and of the German National Bank
of Allegheny. The Indictment found In
Pittsburg alleged that on June 3. IS**, he
paid a sum of money to obtain the de
posit!" of the funds of the city for his bank.
It was said that the payment of 1E2.000 wm
made at the Hotel Imperial, in this city.
Mr. Hoffstot was In court with his three
lawyers. Adrian H. Joline. John D. Lindsay
and Adrian H. I-arkin. He Is of medium
height, stout, gray and smooth faced and
of ruddy complexion. Again and again
while the arguments were in progress he
put his left hand to hU ear to hear and
leaned far forward.
Mr. Joline's argument against extradi
tion and for the writ of habeas corpus was
in the main an attack on Governor
Hugh's opinion when granting the appli
cation for requisition papers, George Gor
don Battle, who represented tin Pittsburg
district attorney, W. A. Plakeley, was as
sisted by Robert S. Johnstone, of District
Attorney Whitmans staff.
Mr Battle quoted authorities and cited
eases in which the Judges refused to rule
in matters relating to Interstate causes,
and said that in every Instance there was
the statement of an exception only when
the circumstances were urgent and pecul
iar. They were neither urgent nor peculiar
in this case, he said.
The Pier™ rare In Missouri In the Texas
prosecution of {.he C jj company was cited
by Mr. Lindsay m similar to the one under
consideration. He safd that the court In
that case held that it was essentially a
proceeding for the T'nlted States courts, as
it was a constitutional question. Mr. BattU
then made a motion to quash the writ, and
Judge Holt reserved decision. In begin
ning his argument Mr Joline attacked the
statement in the papers in th« case thai
