FIRED BY CANNON Speaker of the House Treats Sen ate to Dose of Its Own Medicine. r-'ib BLOCKADE CHARGES ASTUTELY DENIED Some Sore Statesme n. Say Holds Up Bills of Foes of House Measures. Journal fpecial Service. Washington, March 15."Uncle Joe" Cannon is givi ng the Senate a dose of its own medicine. j* the a*- ger and dismay of theupper house, JS blocking the Passage^ otMiis_ which senators personally are inter ested. The senate has exercised, and can exercise, its prerogative in killing or amending out of all shape bills of great national importance sent to it by the house, but the house, thru its speaker, is beginning to show it, too, can play at this game, and with measures which affect directly the relations of senators and their constituents. Several senators declare the policy Speaker Cannon has adopted is of such a high-handed character as to call for the sharpest condemnation. Thoste' 1' who have righ' osenators measures transmitted tvoted the senate by the house have no difficulty, their disgruntled colleagues allege, in getting Speaker Cannon's approval of measures in which they respectively are interested. Under Cannon's Ban. But it is a different proposition with men who voted against joint statehood r antagonized the Philippine tariff bill. Thev have secured the enactment of "bills appropriating money for the erec tion Of public buildings in their states, or for irrigation improvements, or what not. And when these measures go to the house they are referred to the prop er committees, and then the chairman of the* committee goes to the speaker and asks permission to get the Dill he has reported before the house. "No, sir!" thunders the speaker, I am against that bill." Speaker Is Astute. There is no reason given. The speak er is too astute for that, and if he were taxed with refusing to permit the house to consider a bill fathered by an anti statehood senator or an anti-Philippine senator, he would deny he was influ enced by any other motive than doing what seemed to him to. be in the best Mil interest of- the T^e^eJfe-Bat^ t&JteitH-th^^ ai8RTUJVtlea senators, tails, thejr .knw thewtirkihgs of the" speaker's mind and are convinced he is penalizing them for voting in opposition to measures which he forced thru the house.

The emperor is said to be amazed at the revelations made by the Jewish deputation which the pre mier received in audience March 7, and to have informed Count Witte that it was urgently necessary to settle the question immediately. Count" Witte, who has steadily supported the plea for equal rights for the Jews, but who here tofore has contended that it was a matter for the national assembly to set tle, is understood to have talked quite bluntly to his majesty regarding the in mamexable difficulties -which his oppon ent^ -were raising on this and other questions, and he is said to have gone to the extent of requesting permission to resign the premiership. The emperor, it is added, would not listen to this,- insisting that Count Witte must remain in office, and at the same time instructing him to prepare a project providing for the equality of the Jews for presentation to the na tional assembly.

After the last convention of the mine workers, adjourned Feb. 2, following a conference with the operators which had failed to arrive at a wage agree ment, a strike on April 1 seemed inevit able unless something should intervene. At that convention -the miners de manded an per cent, thincrease admissionwagetheoflouth-%12sfoni western states, a 7 per cent differential between machine and pick mining, a 12U per cent advanee for yardaga, and dead work, prohibition of employment of boys under 16 years of age, an eight hour day, a one-year contract and a ruh-of-mme basis. The Byan Besotatioft? The miners also adopted a resolution offered by Mr.-Ryan of Illinois that no district should sign a wage agreement until all the districts signed. This ac tion, known as the Byan resolution, will come before the convention for ac tion. TTnless it is rescinded, the bitum inous miners cannot sign a wage agree ment until the anthracite miners sign' an agreement with their operators. The operators, on the other hand, de manded a reduction of from 10 to 152 per cent, protection against stampedevJ strikes and a better system of adiudica^^ ting local troubles. ?M When the convention met today, dif-"sp ferences that have appeared to exist be--*'| tween President Mitchell and Vice!

The anthracite scale eoinmittee did not meet as planned. The meeting will be held probably tonight. The com mittee is to receive the operators' re ply. Members of the committee ex press the belief that no lengthy reply to the operators would be advisable, and it seems probable that the entire matter will be left to an anthracite convention which probably will be called to meet at Shamokin or Wilkes barre the week after next. ,,TAFT IN A QUAKBABY Debates with Brothers the Offer of piac* on the Bsrrch.
