MB, HANNA SPEAKS
Opposes Selection of the Nio aragua Route. IN FAVOR OF PANAMA PASSAGE OF THE MILITARY ACADEMY BILL. Mr. Sibley Addresses the House in Favor of the Anti-An archy Bill. When the Senate convened today to re sume. at o'clock, the consideration of the isthmian canal bill five lurge maps deplet ing various phases of the canal question were displayed about the wall of the cham ber. Presumably these were to enable Mr. Hanna (Ohio), who was to speak upon the measure. To illustrate his remarks. It was noticeable that on one of the maps all the volcanoes were marked, the active vol canoes being indicated in red and the ex tinct in black It was a very unusual thing for such diagrams to be displayed in the Senate and they attracted much attention. At the conclusion of routine business the following bills were imssed: To divide the district of Alaska into three recording and judicial divisions: to authorize the con struction of a bridge across the Wassamaw river at Conway. S. C., by the Conway and Seashore Railroad Company. Cosoideration then was resumed of the mitltarx academy appropriation bill. Mr. Bate (Tenn.) continued his objection, be gun yesterday, to the large amount pro vide by the measure for improvements at West Point. He considered such a propo sition as extravagant. lie moved to amend by striking from the bill all propositions relating to the proposed improvements at West Point involving an expenditure ultimately of $G,uOO,OtM). Mr. Warren (Wyo.), In charge of the bill, explained that the Improvements were ab solutely necessary, many of the buildings constituting the academy having been in use sine- islti. They were insanitary, un comfortable and inconvenient. They were unworthy of the I'nited States and unfitted for the purposes for which they were used. The contemplated improvements were en tirely necessary. In the course of a few years the academy would be rebuilt prop erly and at not too great expense. Mr Harris (Kansas) opposed Mr. Hate's amendment, expressing the wish that there were s.ooo cadets at West Point, those not needed in the army returning to civil life. These men would form a tine reserve force to be on call for the defense of th nation. Mr Hate's amendment was rejected and the bill was passed. Mr. Hanna on the Canal Bill. At 2 o'clock the isthmian canal bill was taken tip and Mr. Hanna liegan his speech In opposition to the Nicaragua route. He began with a review of the progress of transportation throughout the world. Mr. Hanna said we had passed the sen timental sta^e and reached the practical stage. It was now a question that if we wanted a canal for our commerce we want ed the b-st canal. Mr. Hanna pointed out the fact that the shorter route and saving of expense was Important in canal construction, and these elements were in favor of the I'anama rout-'. THE HOUSE. The House today proceeded without pre liminary business with the consideration of the inti-an.irchy bill. Mr. Sibley (Pa.), the first speaker, earnestly favored the pas rage of the bill. In the course of his remarks Mr. Sibley sald: "When loving hands consigned to mother earth the mortal remains of Will lam McKtnley. that sense of Justice which Is so predominant in American character demanded in unmistakable tones that there should be made the clear and distinct dec laration that those who plotted treason to the governm- nt and advocated murder of rulers should find that a land enriched by the blood of patriots and martyrs too small to hold those who should conspire for its overthrow. The patriotism of our nation believed that almost the first act of the American Congress would be so to legislate that in the future neither a Johann Most nor an Kmma Goldman, the more responsi ble authors of such crime, should escape punishment. "Notwithstanding the fact that the first recommendation made by the President in his annual message to Congress dealt with the subject, six months have rolled around, and for the first time this is a topic of dis cussion in this body." In closing he said: "In the strength of our purpose, and endowed with the cour age of our convictions, we will send to an archy and all her brood the message that Carrield once delivered, when uj>on the death of l.incoln this nation was plunged In panic and despair. "God reitrns, and the government at Washington still lives." " Mr. Sibley was warmly applauded when he concluded. Mr. Loud Opposed. Mr. I.oud (Cal.) opposed the bill. He said lie sympathized with the motives which prompted the proposed legislation, but nevertheless he believed Congress was about to act upon Impulse. If the matter went over until the next session he did not think it would ever be heard of again. If he could bring himself to believe that there was a word or line in the bill which would protect the life of the President he would accept the remainder, bad as it was. The legislation was unnecessary, he de clared. No assassin of a I*resident had ever escaped the death penalty, and none ever would. Mr. Loud referred In his re marks to the intemperate criflcism of the President sometimes indulged in by public n en in <"oneress and by the press, which tended to inflame the public mind, and said that this was one of the lessons to be 1- irne.1 from the assassination of the late President which public men should take home to themselves. Mr. Woolen (Texas! and Mr. DeArmond (Mo.? also questioned the wisdom of the passage of the bill. Had Inception in Cincinnati. CINCINNATI. Ohio.

Large Block of Ground Chosen on 17th Street South of Corcoran Art Gallery. A decision has been reached as to a loca tion for the proposed building for the head quarters in this city of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The site selected is on the west side of 17th street" between C and D streets northwest, opposite the grounds south of the White House and just south of the building of the Corcoran Art Gallery. The latter owns the entire front age on 17th street of the square between New York avenue and E street, while the Daughters will acquire the entire frontage on the same street of the square between C and D streets. The area is believed to be ample, as it comprises some iW.000 square feet. There is an extended frontage of 210 feet on 17th street and about 160 feet on both C and D streets. It is thought that the exposure on three strefts is of special advantage, as the main feature of the proposed new structure Is to be a hall with a stating capacity of about 2.000. Here will be held the annua' gather ings of the organization, and provision will also be made for offices for the permanent headquarters of the society In this city. Mrs. Fairbanks, the president of the so ciety. and the ladies associated with her, have given the subject of a location care ful consideration, and It is believed that their choice will be found to more nearly meet the requirements than any of the numerous places that have been submitted. The avenue cars now run down F and G streets, and the Metropolitan cars pass the corner of 17th and H streets, so that the new location is within easy access of the two street car systems of this city. BECOBD NOT HEBE YET. Besult of Gen. Smith's Trial Not Of ficially Known. The announcement that the record of the trial of Brigadier General Smith had been received here and was under consideration by the President is premature. It is said at the War Department that the record cannot possibly arrive here for several days yet. If it was brought over on the transport Meade, which arrived at San Francisco Monday, it ought to get hete this evening or tomorrow, but there is no certainty that the papers were brought on that vessel. It was currently reported in Manila at the conclusion of the trial that General Smith had been acquitted, but that report has never been officially confirmed. By his personal direction the President himself will review the proceedings and findings of the court. MB. HAM'S BESIGNATION. Byron Waite of Detroit His Probable Successor. The President has accepted the resigna tion of C. W. Ham. president of the board j of general appraisers in New York. The resignation is to take effect August 1. It is und< rstood to be due to the condition of Mr. Ham's health. The President has decided to appoint By ron Waite. a Detroit lawyer, to fill the va cancy. Several candidates have been pro posed. ADJ OUBNMENT BESOLUTION. Mr. Buppert Proposes to End Congress on the 28th Instant. A joint resolution was introduced in the House today by Mr. Kuppert oT New York, providing for the adjournment of the two houses of Congress on the 28th day of June. This is the lirst adjournment resolution which has been Introduced in the present session. THE CHALMETTE CAMP. Report of Col. Crowder Sent to the House by the Pfesident. The President today sent to the House the reix>rt of Col. Crowder. who made the investigation of the charges of Governor Heard of Louisiana that the neutrality laws were being, violated at Chalme>tte, La., by the collection of military^ supplies. In transmitting the report the President says: "I transmit herewith a copy of the report from Colonel Crowder, the officer who made the investigation referred to, and a copy of a letter which, by my direction, the Secre tary of State addressed on the 3d of this month to the governor of Louisiana, being an answer to a communication from Gov ernor Heard in which he charged certain violations of the neutrality laws of the United States at the i>ort of Chalmette, La., which communication, with its inclosures, has already been laid before the House of Representatives in compliance with its reso lution of April 10, 1002, and is printed In House document No. 5fi8, Fifty-seventh Congress, first session." A STATUE OF STEUBEN. House Committee Votes for a $50,000 Appropriation. The House committee on library yesterday ordered a favorable report upon a bill ap propriating $5O,000 for an eeiuestrian statue of Baron Steuben to be erected In Wash ington. Baron Steuben was a distinguished officer of the Prussian army, who in 1777 tendered his services to General Washington, later becoming inspector general of the army, with the rank of major general, serving on the court-martial of Benedict Arnold, and preparing the manual of discipline for the Continental forces. Congress, In 1790 voted ! him a life annuity of $2,."i0o, and New York gave him lti.000 acres, forming the town ship of Steuben, where he lived up to the time of his death. The committee also favorably reported the bill of Representative Fitzgerald. New York, appropriating $100,000 for the monu ment to the martyrs who died on British prison ships, to be erected in Fort Green Park. Brooklyn. 'Filipinos Free to Come. The President has made response to a resolution adopted by the Senate at the in stance of Senator Hoar a few days since making inquiry as to wjhether there is any law in force in the Philippines preventing natives from coming to the United States. The President expressed no opinion of his own. but inclosed the following statement from Secretary Root: "The War Depart ment knows of no law or regulation in force in the Philippine Islands which will prevent any native of those islands who may so de sire. not under arrest and against whom no charge of any offense against the United States Is pending, from coming to the United States and stating his views or de sires t? the President or either house of Congri ss." District a Defendant. Suit at law to recover damages in the sum of $10,000 was instituted late this af ternoon bv John Roilow against the Dis trict of Columbia and Warren F. Brenlzer. It is alleged that January 27 last, while on B street between Cth and 7th streets, the plaintiff drove a wagon over an Improperly filled trench, the wheels sank and the wagon was overturned and the plaintiff sustained painful Injury- Attorneys Davis and Tucker appear for Mr. Rollow. Favor Local Man for Judge. A large number of members of the bar assembled at the city hall at 3:15 o'clock this afternoon in response to the call for a special meeting to protest against the sug gested appointment of other than a local lawyer as associate justice of Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, to suc ceed the late Justice Bradley. \ TEE LEAK NOT FOUND PAPERS IN ARNOLD CASE WERE IN MANY HANDS. Secretary Soot Declines to Be Quoted on Probable Course of the War Department. Secretary Root declines to say anything for publication as to the probable course of action of the War Department in the matter of the charges filed against Lieut. Arnold of the 4th Cavalry and Sergeant Matthews of the same regiment for alleged cruelties to Filipinos beyond the statement that he has ordered the trial of the ser geant by court-martial and an investigation of the charges against Lieut. Arnold, with a view to determining future action in his ! case. Colonel Crowder of the Judge advocate general's department is conducting the in vestigation of the Arnold case. A previous investigation of the case satisfied the offi cials that the papers on file in the case, including the charges made by Private Weir, did not justify court-martial proceed ings in that case. It is learned at the War Department this afternoon that the effort to ascertain how Senator Culberson secured copies of the papers in this case has so far proved un successful. It is stated further that noth ing had been developed by the investigation into the matter up to this time to implicate Lieutenant General Miles personally in the transaction despite the strong intimations to that effect in outside quarters. The papers went through the hand3 of many clerks in the offices of the Secretary, the adjutant general, the judge advocate genera# and the lieutenant general, and the leak at the department?if there was one has not yet been traced. Lieut. Gen. Miles, who is now at Fort Ililey, Kans., has been out of the city since Monday, but the offi cers at headquarters disclaim any knowl edge as to how Senator Culberson obtained the copies he submitted to the Senate. All the other officers at the department through whose hands the papers passed also deny most emphatically any responsibility for the alleged leakage. In the absence of any direct information Implicating General Miles personally of dis courtesy in the matter, it is not regarded as likely that any disciplinary measures will l>e adopted. The friends of that officer deprecate what they term the efforts of his enemies to widen the breach between him self and the Secretary of War in the mat" ter. HISSES FOR BRIDAL PARTY. Thousand Women Restrained Only by Efforts of Police. WORCESTER, Mass., June 5.?One of the most sensational scenes ever witnessed at a church in this city was enacted at St. John's Roman Catholic Church here yester day when Mary E. Donaher, a teacher in the public schools of Worcester, was mar ried to Dr. Maurice W. Quinn, a dentist of Brockton. As the wedding party entered the church it was met by hisses from 1,000 women, who had apparently gathered for that particular purpose. A detail of police was present to protect the bride and bridegroom, hut it was entire ly powerless to maintain order. The women rushed by Rnd around the police, close to the wedding party, and gave vent to their feelings in no uncertain man ner. The demonstration grew out of the attempted shooting of Dr. Quinn. several days ago. by Miss Bertha Condon of this Cny. who asserted Quinn had betrayed her under promise of marriage. NAPLES COURT OF INQUIRY. Secretary Moody Expects to Announce the Findings Saturday. Secretary Moody said today that he ex pected to make public the findings of the court of inquiry which investigated the cases of Captain Wynne and his brother officers of the Chicago Saturday morning. Captain Dayton, commanding the Chicago, was President of the court and the inves tigation was conducted at Naples. There is no doubt in naval circles that the court recommended that no further proceedings be had and the Impression is general that the matter will be allowed to drop. The delay in announcing the result Is said to be due to a knotty legal proposition which arose in the case of one of the officers ar rested at Venice. Baltimore and Potomac Elects Officers. BALTIMORE, Md? June r>.?At the an nual meeting of the stockholders of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Company these directors were re-elected: Charles E. Pugh and R. D. Barclay of Philadelphia, John Cassels of Washington. D. C., Samuel Cox. jr., of Charles county, Robert C. Hall. Michael Jenkins and John B. Ramsay of Baltimore. At a subsequent meeting of the directors officers were re-elected as follows: President, George C. Wilklns of Baltimore; vice president, Chas. K. Pugh of Philadel phia; treasurer, Robert W. Smith of Phila delphia. and secretary, James P. Kerr of Baltimore. Appointment of Naval Cadets. The naval bill, as rei>orted to the Senate from the naval committee, contains a pro vision for the appointment annually of ninety-five cadets to the Naval Academy. They will be divided among senators and representatives on the same general basis that exists today, except that the President will have fifteen Instead of ten appoint ments annually, and the District of Colum bia together with the territories will have one each. When the bill was in the House an amendment was offered providing for the appointment of o(H) cadets during the next four years, but it was thrown out of the bill on a point of order. The Senate | committee's amendment will doubtless be acceptable to the House. An Oleomargarine Decision. The commissioner of internal revenue has ruled that manufacturers of oleomargarine may store the product of their factories, after the tax Is paid thereon, in cold stor age or other warehouses away from their factory premises, and make such deliveries fiom such warehouses, provided the sales are completed at the factory in accordance with existing regulations, and such deliv eries can be made by manufacturers who shall have renewed their qualifications as such after July 1.

ATTACK'ON GRANGERS II J - A BEARS tttf.tr PRESENCE FlELT IN MARKET. i Margin Operators More Pessimistic? Dividend Declared 011 Northwest ern?Lower Level for Coalers. Sportal Dispatch to The Evening Star. NEW YORK, Junfc 5.?Selling by western Interests and the growing belief that pres ent conditions favored a lower market be fore a higher one resulted In an Increased volume of business and a lower level of prices this morning. The selling was mixed In character, but represented liquidation as well as renewed selling for the short account. The news of the day was not adverse, at least not more so than for a week past, but the technical condition of the market was considered to lavor declines as the only means of attracting business. A weak account was uncovered as the re sult "of the selling, and margin operators became more pessimistic in the presence of a half point decline than at any time during the last two weeks of unfavorable develop ments. The western operators were free sellers, and nearly all of the speculative favorites sold off from % to 1*4 per cent. The selling of St. Paul had been a feature for several days, and the fact that it was continued today led to a general selling of the Granger roads. The one development of Importance was the declaration of an extra dividend of 1 per cent on both classes of Northwestern stock, but this announcement failed to stimulate the general market. As a re flection of railroad prosperity and the wisdom of conservative management the announcement is encouraging. Early In the day there was some good buying of Pennsylvania by semi-investment interests, but conditions even in this case were re garded as justifying caution. The support in the coal stocks was less effective than on previous days, and all of the active issues, particularly Reading's, sold down in sympathy with the market. It is significant that these stocks, while directly concerned with the labor troubles, show quite as much resistance as any of their neighbors. Unconfirmed rumors of a certain strike in the soft coal fields helped to increase the general mistrust of the situation. Realizing sates In Canadian Pacific forced a further sharp decline in price, but the street was disposed to regard this setback as being an incident to an overdone ad vance. IimfclHijFraction stocks the recent buyers were credited with selling to take profits owing to their failure to arouse a public interest rtn the effort to advance prices. * 1 The steel, stocks were distinctly heavy under selling of scattered -holdings due to the somewhat confused condition of senti ment respecting Hhese. Issues. There was some evidence of' two factions in American sugar, trao(i\interests being credited with a willingness ,%o buy on a scale down. Copper ne^'s was mixed in character, but Boston hoifees sold Amalgamated on the theory that 'recapitalization might be nec essary In order t? bring that company into a proper relation to existing conditions. The industrial list as a whole sold off mod erately. soyie of the higher priced Issues, such as Wjjstlnghouse, making substantial declines. Money was in good supply around 3 per cent.fbut the demand was light. Money Is not easy to the extent indicated by the loaning rate and any unusual de mand would force a sharp advance. Con sidering the low bank reserves, the July disbursements, crop needs and the money borrowed In . Europe, the summer market will have to restrict its demands upon the banks or work Injury to prices.

Movement to Secure Legislation Re quiring Sunday Closing of Stores. With President P. B. Otterbae-k presiding the regular monthly meeting of the Retail Grocers' Protective Association. Incorporat ed last month under the laws of the District of Columbia, was held last evening in the organization's hall on 6th street northwest. About one-flfth of the entire membership, which is now claimed to be 300, was present and indulged in the discussion relating to the Sunday closing of stores, as proposed by legislation now pending before Congn ss, the Bikers' Protective Association with reference to the delivery of hot bread, and a number o/ other matters. President Otterback read letters received from various grocers and wholesale tirms. the nature of which was very encouraging to the efforts of the association. These let ters also promised the hearty support of the writers. A communication from the Bakers' Pro tetcive Association was read and plactd be fore the association. It was stated in the letter that the Bakers' Association had \i>ALi.i-v'. L.y t'liv ?.1..vriiVitcUiv? As sociation that such drivers as are tmplovid on what is known as the late, or afternoon, shift of duty, would not. after a certain date, be willing to work until 11 o'cloek in 1 the morning. In other words the commu nication stated when local grocers might j expect to receive fresh bread for the noon and early afternoon trade. The Grocers' Association expressed a willingness to ac cept the change in the t me of delivery from 11 o'clock a. m. to I o'clock in the afternoon. It is the purpose of the grocers' associa tion to secure legislation which will force the closing of stores on Sunday. Youthful Wanderers. Two small colored girls. Annie and Edna Simms. four and five years old. respective ly. are being cared for at the house of de- ; tention. Yesterday afternoon they were ' found on the Rockville road by a farmer who was on his way to this city. They | were lost and the farmer brought them to ! Georgetown, where he left them, and they ? were picked up by a colored man named William Thornton, whose home is on O street northwest between 25th and 31th streets. Mr. Thornton cared for the chil- j dren over night and today he took them to 1 the forth precinct police station, where he ' turned them over to the desk sergeant. To this official the children said they had been ? driven from their home, near Itockviile, by theii stepmother. FAMOUS LIBERTY BELL. Relic of '76 to Be Taken Through Washington Monday Next.
