OF @PAZ= wA3 SURVIVORS TO AWATa.AWATK ethg of committm 3gprgeting . ach Body to Be Xdd in This City Tomarrow. The final steps for the amaigamatln Of the Spanish War Veterans and the ptish American War Veterans are to be taken at a meeting of the committees of both or ganizations to be held jointly 'In this cidt beginning tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock. The meeting will probably cofitinue through two days. This meeting Is the culmihation of the negotiations that have been in prog res for the past year for the consolidation of the organizations; each of the two hav ing practically the same origin'and many of the same members. The first society, the Spanish War Vetetans. was organized in this city Immediately after the war with Spain. There was great enthusiasm at the time of the organization, and a number of prominent officers of the regular and vol unteer army Immediately affiliated with the society. The officers elected at the first na tional convention, which was held In this city, were all, with one or two exceptions, from among the prominent general officers of the army during the war, and the or ganization bade fair to be to the veterans of the Spanish-American war what the G. A. R. Is to the veterans of the civil war. Internal dissensions disturbed the even tenor of the business of the organization, however, which culminated In a factional fight between a minority led by the ad jutant general, W. C. Liller, and the ma jority, led by the most of the other officeds of the national organization. As a result of the fight Mr. Liller withdrew from the society and organized the Spanish-American War Veterans. He immediately obtained a strong following and became adjutant gen eral of the new organization. Business Interests Clash. The scheme of organization was practi cally the same in both, and was similar in some respects to the G. A. R. The business of the two societies, which had identical In terests, began to clash, and the officers finally reached the conclusion that the best way to preserve an association of Spanish war veterans was to effect an amalgama tion of the two. There were also a number of smaller socleties of veterans of this war which it was desired to draw into one large body. About this time Mr. Roosevelt succeeded to the presidency, and both of the Spanish war organizations desired to enroll him as a member. Committees from both organi zations waited on him and invited him to join, but hg declined on the ground that he did not desire to belong to two organiza tions with the same objects and suggested an amalgamation. He is reported to have said that he did not believe it feasible for the two organizations to continue. This occurred last winter. Steps were Immediately taken by the two organizations to draw up plans for amalga mation and committees were appointed to meet jointly and prepare a constitution id code of by-laws. The plane desided upon by this committee were reported to the na tional cofnventions of the two organizations last summer, which were held in Detroit and Indianapolis. President Roosevelt spoke at both conventions, and urged uni formity of action among the Spanish war veterans. It had been expected that the two conventions would ratify what the joint committee had done, but for some reason this was not accomplished. However, an other joint committee was named, with power to act finally, and It Is this commit tee which meets tomorrow. Personnel of the Committee. The new committee Includes Col. M. Em met Urell, commander-in-chief of the Span ish War Veterans; Capt. C. C. Dyer, his adjutant general, and the following mem bers of the organization over which Colonel Urell presides: Col. Francis C. Ward of Buffalo, N. Y.; Capt. Champe R. Andrews of New York city; Maj. Charles M. Miller of Canton, Ohio; Chaplain W. H. S. Rea ney, U. S. N.; Capt. L. M. Lipscomb of this city and Capt. Hamilton Ward, Jr., of New York city. From the Spanish-American War Veterans there will be Gen. J. Rulings of Oil City, Pa.; Gen. James Coryell of Philadelphia, Pa., both past commanders in-chief of their organization; Col. Edward J. Dimmick of Chicago; Capt. Henry F. Allers of Newark, N. J.; Col. R. B. Harri-. son . of Indianapolis, Ind.; Capt. Charles Davis of Troy, N. Y.; Capt. Ambrose Hig gins of Philadelphia, Pa., and Maj. F. C. Bryan of this city. The joint committee, will meet tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock at the Ebbitt House and will elect temporary officers. The Lre dentials of the various members of the committee will then be examined and a recess will be taken at noon to visit the White House. President Roosevelt will receive the committee and after the re ception the members will go to the Barton, where lunch will be served and where the remainder of the meetings of the commit tee will be held. During the meeting a constitution will be adopted, by-laws framed, officers for the new organization selected, a name chosen, insignia designed and every detail of the organization perfected. The time and place for the first annual convention of the con solidated body will then be selected and a uniform for the organization will be de cided upon. Just what this will be has not been determined, deftiitely, but It will probably be the blue and gray that* nas become so popular with the veterans of the Spanish war. It is considered as positive that the place for the annual convention of the new organization will be Washington and the time a date In September or Je-' tober next. NOT APPLICABLE TO 1XrABJriES. The Statute Providing for Certiflcaten of Merit of Conspicuous Conduct. Attorney General Knox has given an opinion to the Secretary of the Navy in regard to the conferring of certificates of merit in the marine corps. The case In point is that of Sergeant Patrick J. Sulli van, United States Marine Corps, who was commended by ex-Secretary Long for con spicuous and meritorious conduct in the battle near Tien Tsin, China, June 21, 1900. The Question was whether section 1216 of the Revised Statutes, as amended, Is ap plicable to the marine corps. The Attorney General held that it Is not, and stated his conclusions on the questions as follows:. "Section 1216 In Its present form provides that when any enlisted man of the army shall have distinguished himself In the service, the President may, at the recom-~ mendation of the commanding offBcer of the regiment or the chief of the corps to which the enlisted man belongs, grant him a certificate -of merit. -This is an explicit provision for enlisted men of the army, not of the navy or of .the marine corps. It' seems to me to be exclusive, for there Is a corresponding provision for the navy which in its original form conferred upon seamen a gratuity and medal of honor for distin guished and heroic service. By the act of March 3, 1901, this reward was expressly extended to any elsted man of the navy or marine corps who shall have distin guished himself in battle or displayed ex traordinary herols.n In'the line of his pro fession. 'In view -of this clear distinctidn created by ther terms of the .lawr between the en listed men of the army and of the navy and the marine corps, respectively, in regard .to e:straordlhary reward for distlit guished service, it does net seem to me that section 1216 of the Revised Statutes assmil lating the marine earps to the army In re speet to ordinary pay, allowances, and boun ty for re-enlisting is applicable'to the spe cial reward for gallant service soas to bring the marine corps within section 12zw In consequence of these views, I have the honor to answer your Inquiry in the nega tive.".

Detectives in the employ of the Southern Railroad Company are'engaged in Investi gating the wrecking of the foth -bound New York and Florida express, which oc curred at Ravensworth, ten miles below Alexandria. early Sunday morning. It to the declared Intention of the company to fix the responsibility for the disaster, it It Is Possible to do no, and in order to further the efforts in this direction General Man ager C. H. Ackert has offered &reward of $50 for the arrestof the person'or persons who caused the derailment of the express. The offer of this sum was made with aL view of securing the assistance of others, thus adding to t1lb efforts of the railroad detectives. That the wreck was the result of mali cious design in regarded now by the com Pany officials an being as gFood as proved. All of the circumstances which have come to light under the present investigation lend weight to this conclusion. The perfect condition of the switch and main track only a short i tis direthe wreck, an proved by the safe passage of several, trains; the absence of the switch light when the Ill-fated -engine turned the curve Just to the north of It, and the absence of the switch lock, which would have been In Its place had It been handled by a railroad employe, toger the it many other facts, have Influenced the officials in directing their energies to the apprehension of some person as the perpetrator of a malicious deed. Although Mr. A. Gordon Jones, superin tendent of the Washington division of the Southern, was Inclinedto dc i the the ory of robbrry as the motive for the as sumed crime, many rpalroad men hold the view that the wrecker Intended his work for toihe sorthbound Chesapeake and Ohio express, which, passes Ravensworth about midnighet. hae New York and Florida ex press, being nearly two -hours late, was running within a the minutes of the sched ulen of the tesapeake and Ohio train. Previous Attehet to Wreck Train. Several years prgo7.an attempt was made at Ravensworth: to- wreck this express, and since then there haVe been evidences on a number of occasions of other attempts which proved bartive owing to the vig Hlance of the railroad men. The Chesapeake and Ohio thin wa understood to carry large sums of money for the express com panies Saturday evenings, and the expectx tion of securlugethiswas supposed to be the motive for the *tte'its. The fact that-na ifbbery followed either wreck was- supposede by Division Superin tendent -Jonds -'o indicate that the eforts were madeout enmity .or .the road rather.thaK-becaumaofot,aas,expectation of: gain. But it-of gwinted out that the man or men supposed to have wrecked the ex p'ress Sunday last might have been con cealed near the scene, and that the Inten tion of robbery wais abandoned after It was discovered that the Southern, instead of the Chesap 'eake and Ohio train, had run into The fact thatp"T fi O lo thOe passenger day coach and sleepers remained on the rails prevented the chance of a tragic end ing to a honeymoon just then begun. In one of the cars was the GallaudettCockrel wedding party. No one was brijured. for tunately, and the parties continued their journey to Florida later Sunday morning. Reports ade to Executive Body.

Before the Women's Democratic Club of Brooklyn, yesterday afternoon, 'William -Jennings Bryan made an address, in which he said: "I would like to se the democratic party stand for something. I read .a great deal about men who can win, and the newspa pers are full of statements concerning this and that public candidate. When I look over the stories concerning these men I see that these men stand for nothing and that they will doenothijig if they areletected. "When I first went to Congress there was ,a democratic President in the White House, an& what did he stand for? Nothing. When he made up his cabinet he took into It men who were not In sympaAy with the major ity of their party. "He put men into office who cared noth ing for the wishes of their party. And when that President left the White House his party was weaker than when he went there. During a recent national campaign that former President took himself out of the party and took most of his officeholders with him. Disturbed the Harmony. "While I was in Congress I banded to gether with a number of other congressmen to compel that President to do something. but we were told that we were harmony disturbers and that we must not disturb harmony. I believe that' when harmony stands for nothing It should be opposed and fought vigorously. "We are told even now that we must not disturb the harmony that prevails. That we must not Injure the chance of winning. I declare to you that I stand for the prin ciples that I have always stood for, and when I change them everybody will know It "The men who are howling for harmony the loudest now are those who opposed the party in 189. If they were right then they ought not to want to associate with us, and if they were wrong and are sorry for it they ought to say so. "We want a democrat who is a democrat all of the time to lead us and not a man Whose plans and specifications you have to 1 look up to find out where he belongs." When questioned about this part of his speech after the meeting Mr.- Bryan de clared: ' "I certainly meant Mr. Cleveland. My words could not be misunderstood. The conditions I mentioned are a matter of his tory." GUEST OF XEMEERS Supreme Commander of Lady Macca bees in the City. Mrs. Lillian M.

REPO3T ON TME ROUS AIT A Numbei of.Vry Imputoat Amn. mat-Three 3epub4cana Vote With the Democrat. The Senate committee on the judiciary yesterday- eencludqd consideration of the House anti-tirust bill, ina deeited to report It to the Sate .wth a number of very im portant amendments. The most Important changes were mide in connection with sec tions 0 and 7 of the House bill, for which the Senate committee will recommend com plete substitutes. Section 6, as the bill passed the House. I prohibited peirsons engaged' in violating the provisions of the- law from using any of the Instrumentalities of interstate commerce. This purpose is retained in the substitute 1 of the Senate committee, but the'sope of I the provision is enlarged, so that, as agreed t on, it reads as follows: Penalty for Engaging in Xonopoly. "That no corporation engaged in the pro- a luction, manufacture or sale of any article 4 which may be the subject of interstate com- t merce attempting to monopolize the produc tion, manUfacture or sale thereof in any state, by discrimination in prices, or by giv ing special privileges or rebates, or In any i Ather manner whatever, in order to prevent b )r hinder competition therein, with respect i to such article, shall In any way engage in interstate commerce for the purpose of aid [ng or facilitating, either directly or- In lirectly, such production, manufacture, or sale with intent to monopolize the produc ion, manufacture or sale of any such arti .le; nor shall any other person or corpora ion in any way engage in interstate com nerce, in buying, selling, or disposing of my such article of commerce, for the pur pose of enabling such first-mentioned cor poration to engage or to continue to engage ln such production, manufacture or sale, I with such intent. The business of any per- 0 ion or corporation engaged In the manu .acture, production, or sale of any manufac ured article that may be the subject of = Interstate commerce, which by reason of )wnership or control of lands, growing tim per or other vegetable products, or con taining coal, oil, iron or other minerals or netals used in the manufacture of such Lrticles, or by reason of ownership or con rol of the instrumentalities of manufac 'ure, production or sale, shall have the power to control or affect, in whole or in part, the prices of sa!d articles throughout he United States, so as to prevent, fore- 1 stall, stifle, Oestroy or hinder competition :herein, and which shall be so conducted, n whole or in part, as to prevent, forestall, stifle, destroy or hinder such competition ts hereby declared to be a monopoly within the meaning of this section. The foregoing 11 lefinition shall not be held to Include a busi- 'I iess founded on a secret process, so long as the secret Is confined to one manufacturer )r producer. "Any person violating either of the pro- e visions of this section, or aiding, abetting, $ issisting or counseling any other person or t corporation to violate the same, shall, on aonviction, be punished by a fine of not more than $5,000 or by imprisonment in the penitentiary for not more than five years, )r by both such fine and Imprisonment, at the discretion of the court. Any corpora ion violating the provisions of this section d shall, for every such act, forfeit to the United States the sum of $5,000, to be re ,overed as in other cases of penalties; and ( lor the purpose of said forfeiture every sale of goods, wares or merchandise for shipment outside the state where said cor- D )oration is located and doing business with u :he intent so to monopolize, and every con :ract for such sale, and every shipment of such articles pursuant to such sale or con ;ract, and every act of discrimination. with t such intent, in prices or of giving special a privileges or rebates shall be considered a violation of this section." - The new section also prescribes the con litions under which it shall be unlawful 1 lor any corporation hereafter organized to t mngage in interstate commerce. These con- . iltions are as follows: b First. The capital stock of such corpora- p tion has been fixed at a sum greater than c the sum actually paid in in cash or in c property at its actual cash value, unless . the excess has been actually subscribed by - bona fide subscribers and is subject to call in the manner provided by the law of the state where organized. Second. The paid-up capital stock of such corporation has been increased by the purchase with its own stock of the stock f other corporations at a value in excess Df a fair cash value of the latter, or Paid for with its own stock at a valuation less than a fair cash value. Third. The paid-up capital stock of such corporation has been increased by the pur chase with its own stock, at par or less, of property at a valuation based on earning capacity and good will, when such valua tion -is in excess of the cost of duplicating said property, if the property be manufac- | turing or producing plants, railways or steam vessels, or is in excess of its fair cash value if the property be mines, real estate or any class of unimproved property. Section 7 of the House bill imposed a line of $5,000 on common carriers for the violation of this act or the existing inter state commerce law. The substitute uses the word "corporation" instead of the words "common carrier," and provides for a forfeit to the United States, and adds: "For the purposes of said forfeiture every sale of goods, wares or merchandise for shipment outside the state Mrhere said cor poration is located arid .doing business, and every contract for ^auch sale, and every shipment of such articleG pursuant to such sale or contract, and if such corporation be a common carrier, every day that It en gages in the business of carrying on inter state commerce -shall constitute a violation f this section." . A fine of $5,000 or imprisonment for five years or both is imposed on persons who nay knowingly cause or aid any corpora dion to violate these statutes. e Party Lines Broken. It was over these two substitutes that the pl :ommittee had its sharpest contest and clos st votes. They were carried by the full lemocratic vote with the assistance of three ~ epublicans. the senators voting for the es smendments being: Messrs. Hoar, Nelson tnd McComas, republicans, and Bacon, Pet us, Turner. Blackburn and Culberson, lemocrats.
