"I have voted to postpone the con sideration of the nomination," nald he. "because I have not reached the con clusion and I want a, further Investiga tion and more Information."

Under a spe- clal rule, which aroused the protests of the Itepubllcati minority, the Hoime paved the way to-day for attaching as riders to tho pending agricultural ap propriation measure the cotton futures, the warehouse licensing and the grain standardization bills. The first of these was adopted as an amendment. The other two will be probably added to the measure to-morrow. The minority leader charged the Democrats with throttling debate aisJ gagglim the House to add legislative riders to appropriation bills. The move of the majority is looked on aa pre saging the adoption of drastic methods to speed up legislation and force through the House the Admltilwtratlon's pro gramme. lUpresentatlve Lenroot of Wisconsin laid the responsibility for the gag rule at the doors of the Southern members. I do not like to raise the cry of sectionalism." ho said, "but to-day cot ton Is king. You Democrat! are In the saddle and you arc going to put through tills rule to limit debate to serve your own purposes. As a soil to the members from the North and middle West you arc thioning In this grain standardiza tion bill. It Is only a nop and little or nothing will be accomplished by It." IteprescntatUo Harris retorted that the Democrats in framing the rule had been much more liberal than the Repub licans bud been In their day by allowing a c-rtaln amount of debate and oppor tunity for amendment "Yes." said Mr. Lenroot. "ami you re member what hnvpened to them?" The grain tamtnrdlzatlon and the warehouse licensing bill", which have passed one or both branches of Con gress before, will be adopted to-morrow, and the appropriation bill completed. DEADLOCK ON ARMY BILL. Conferees Cannot .arn-e on ano.OOO Itrgulars. Washington, April 25. Conferees on the army bill have been deadlocked over the proposed Increase of the regu lar army to 2SO,O0n. The failure to respond to the Gov- eminent'. Invitation to enlist under tho authorization by Congress of an Increase of tho regular army to Its full legal strength was cited to-day as an argil-1 ment that it is runic to try to raise an army up to i'SO.OOO under present con ditions, Tills was pointed out by Sn.i tor Hughes at the time the Senate , adopted tho amendment to the army bill , In the Senate, and Senator Hughes, who voted for the Increase, said It would be of no Bvall unless Congress raised the pay of the enlisted men. The Senator offered an amendment to raise me pay to 825 a month, but It failed. The House conferees have stood out against the proposed Increase and say tha,t If Congress authorizes an army or 2u0,000 the strength will be a paper strength simply and the recruiting under present conditions will never succeed. The Senate conferees have argued that the amendments made by tho Sen ate In the bill providing for vocational training and the shortening of the term of enlistment with the Inducements of fered for reenllstment will stimulate In terest It, Joining the army.

To-day's esti mate was that between 140.000 nnd inO,000 would be the number. They nra still coming In, though In decreasing numbers. The cost of this enterprise Is estimated at 1250,000, This fact Impelled Senator Hunting to s'iy ho would demand a Senatorial Investigation of tho sources of the funds. In the final rush of the last two days the senders abandoned day and night letters and despatched many at stialght commercial rates, some messages costing 14 or 85 each. Coupled with the desire of Congress men to-dn: to know whom tho money came frum was the desire to know who put the stop order on the telegrams. It was reported that the original plan had been to bombard Congress with 000,000 messages. Just' before Senator Hunting sug gestea a public in-ulry "sr. lY.ir.clsco reported 10,000 telegrams on hand for Washington; Milwaukee reported 5,000.

Under ordinary circumstance a week would be consumed In the consideration of the bill. Tho ohvious purpose of the Democrats to-night Is to make fchort shrift of It.
