which prevailed yesterday among Senator
I tor and Representatives over Preal
1 dent Roosevelts virtual declaration in
hie annual meesage that Congressmen
bad restricted the operations of the
Government Secret Service became they
did not themselves wish to be investi
gated grew greater today Yesterday
many of the legislators had not heard of
er read Mr Roosevellsstrlctures Today
V all of them were acquainted with what
many have construed ae an insult to the
legislative branch There la to be a
public outbreak of resentment and it will
come noon
The SenatorS are just 05 angry as their
younger and more excitable brethren
of the House but their indignation is
not as much in evidence Over on the
House side of the Capitol there was A
buzzing of excitement in cloakrooms
and committee rooms which lasted nil
day When adjournment time came it
had been pretty well agreed among the
leaders Republican nnd Democratic
that something ought to bo dono to make
Mr Roosevelt understand that Congress
did not Intend to sit idlr I > and have the
country made tlhelif > ihil It va full I
of corruption and fearjd tho light The
Home at least Intends to strike baoi
The plan will probably be ready for exe
cution tomorrow
Early this afternoon Champ Clark the
new Democratic leader in the House
and SW gf Shorey of Kentucky ono of
the foremost men of the Democratic
side wnt to the Republican leaders and
tod them flatly that the Democratic
membership did not purpose to permit
the Presidents reflections on Congress
to pass unnoticed From that time on
there were conferences which most
of the big men on both sides of the House
rarticipnted among them in addition
to Clark and Shorter being Sereno F
Payne John DaJrell and James A i Tawney
the Republican floor leaders After talk
is things over for a while they decided
0 ceo Speaker Cannon but a short con
wtion with him convinced them that
it niqht be undesirable to have the
SpeaLer as the presiding officer of the
House brought into the matter BO their
subw uent conferences did not include
Mr C ann n
The Democratic iei4erstollie Repub
lican leaders that they regarded aa pref
erableto jemove whatever action Was
decided on fmapy tinge of partisan
V ship and for Uisf reason they were anxious
to bring about nn agreement bqtwees
both parties chamber so that solid
V front might be presented in sh wing
resentment of Mr Roosevelts attitude
They Mid that it Republicans would
not agree to join withthe Democrats In
this the Democrats would go It alone
and they intimated that if action ws
Y taken by their side of the House without
1 the concurrence ot the Republicans it
I would take the form of a resolution of
censure of the President or at least of a
protest against the language employed
V hv him In his message particularly his
statement that the chief argument in favor
or a proviiion of law enacted last year
curtailing tbs operations of the Secret
Service was that Congressmen them
alves did riot wish to be investigated
and his suggestion generally interpreted
M sarcastic that Congress might make
n pedal exception in favor of itself so as
prevent the use of Secret Service men
in investigative Congressmen
But the Democratic leaders foundthat i
V he captains of the opposition were not
inaympalhelio A decision to unite on
tome form of expression of the Houses
indignation was reached without trouble
end after that the only difficulty was to
determine jutt what was the beat thing
to he done that would obtain the support
of practically the entire membership of
the House The idea of making formal
protest was abandoned and after con
siderable discussion it was decided not
to adopt a suggestion which however
WAS very favorably received that that
portion ot the Presidents message re
lating to the Secret Service should be re
turned to him with an explanation of the
reasons of the House for refusing to ro
lf lve It
From present prospect the leader will
present to the House resolution assert
I ing the dignity and the right of the Housa
m matters of legislation A tentative
agreement to do this waa reached when
th conferences the leaders adjourned
It was not Intended in this resolution to
make a direct reference to what the
President said in his message but to
fcne naming on the President that the
legislative branch of the Government it
not to be lectured by the Executive and
that it will not countenance by silence
An attempt on the part of the President

WASHINGTON Dec 8 Tbere 8 a
good deal of talk in Washington today
about the Identity and personality of
Al Jennings of Oklahoma who appeared
at the White Houae last night More of
two exhibitors of a moving picture show
in which wolf hunting and other typical
wild Western scenes were depicted for
the benefit of President Roosevelt and
a company of distinguished guests who
had dined at the Presidents table Mr
Jenningsa coworker was Jack Aber
nathy United States Marshal of one of
the Oklahoma judicial districts Mr
Abernathy as Tnt BUN has told finds
much amusement in catching em alive
the em In this case referring to fierce
wolves of the plains and timber lands
With tho advertisement obtained from
their appearance at the White House
Mr Abernathy and Mr Jennings intend
to tour the country with their moving
picture show according to statements
made by Mr Jennings to fellow Okla
lomans In Washington
I may or may not havo been noticeable
t the White House guests last night that
in one of the scenes depicted which il
lustrated the gentle art of holding 11
and robbing a railway train Mr Jennings
who had POe before the camera and
whoso picture was displayed on the can
vas tacked to the White Houso wall
showed himself to be an accomplished
actor in his part of the performance
At any rate the fact became known to
day that Mr Jennings had some connec
tion with a train robbery in the Southwest
several years ago which caused him to be
entangled in the meshes of the law
For his part in this performance of
which the White House depletion was
reminiscent Mr Jennings was sentenced
to a term in the penitentiary Part of
this term ho served On June 2310 the
sentence was commuted and InFebruary
1007 President Roosevelt granted a par
don restoring his citizenship rights

Guadeloupe from South American and
West Indian ports arrived here this
morning Among her passengers was
President Cipriano Castro of Venezuela
and h party
Tho Governor of Santander visited
Senor Castro on board the steamer and
saluted him in the name of the Spanish
Government and the local authorities
Soflor Castro then telegraphed greetings
toiLing Alfonso He said to an Inter
viewer that he had an excellent voyage
and that his health was rather better
He added
I intended to undergo an operation
In Berlin by Dr Israel but I hear he has
just died I shall therefore be compelled
to find another specialist In Berlin or
elsewhere My plan is not only to get
cured but to arrange certain diplomatic
affairs with Paris and particularly to
confer with various companies interested
In Venezuela I shall be delighted to
become acquainted with France I shall
perhaps stay at Bordeaux where I will
arrive tomorrow I
LoNDON Dee 10The Telegraphs I
Santander correspondent says that Presi
dent Castro was not aware of tho French
Intention to exclude him from France
and does not believe it He is confident
that the French Government will welcome
him courteously He received lengthy
despatches from Paris The correspond
ent adds that Castro looks ill and that his
suite consider his condition serious They
do not conceal their fear of the result
of an operation owing to his weakened
PAIII Dec 9It ia now stated that
the attitude of Franco toward President
Castro depends to a great extent on his
attitude toward France He will prob
ably b requested to apologize to At
Maigny the French Minister whom he
expelled from Voneniela I the apology
Is made he will bo allowed to enter Franco
I it is refused ho will h conducted to
the frontier
According to the French newspapers
Castros suite ridicule the idea that he
is ill or that he is expatriating himself
He intends to consult specialists but his
chief object is to arrange Venezuelas
diplomatic difficulties with foreign coun
tries He was seen every day by the
other passengers on the steamer Guade
loupe He walked on the bridge for
hours and talked with his suite He was
apparently in the beat possible spirits
M Morlou French Minister to Per was
the only passenger with whom he talked
lengthily To him he told his plans and
showed him papers which he believed
would change Francos attitude toward
him He is willing to make important
concessions in order to resume friendly
relations M Merlon < teegraphed from
Santander to Paris on this subject
Among President Castros suite it is
denied that be ever said he was proud of I
being on bad terms with most Govern
ments or that he wished to create a
southern Slates confederation against
FArop and America I Is said Presi
dent Castro docs not fear that a revolu
tion will take placo In Venezuela during
his absent He has perfect faith In
VicePresident Gomes powers
Castro has disregarded the Venez
uelan Consuls warning that he may b
humiliated at Bordeaux He II sure he
will be welcomed to France Ho made
the first advances before leaving Caracas
by authorizing tho return of several i
French citizens whom he had exiled
TiE HAOUF Deo I Nothing official
can be obtained hero concerning the re
ported revolt in Venezuea which how
ever Is regarded as probable It is sug
gested that President Cast ros journey was
taken less with tho idea of obtaining
surgical treatment than to save his skin
and enjoy his fortune of H50fwooo which

that the atmosphere of Mars affects the
spectrum in the same way though only
onefifth as much a doe the earths
Those who disbelieve in life on Mar
have known their point would be proved
could the absence of an atmosphere be
shown while on the other hand Lowell
and his staff have ben at work seeking
what evidence there might be in favor
of an atmosphere
At the last opposition about a year
ago Dr V N Sllpher an assistant at
Lowell Observatory at Flagstaff Aria
took photographs of the spectrum of
Mars with comparison photographs from
the moon on the same plate These plate
showed to an unusual extent the red end
of the spectrum So much extended was
it that certain line notably A and C
not usually to be found in photographs
were in a place convenient for observa
The greater strength of the line was
evident in the hurtian spectra and In
