. ach Body to Be Xdd in This
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
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-'

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
"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
'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

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

tendent -Jonds -'o indicate that the eforts
were madeout enmity .or .the road

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

Before the Women's Democratic Club of
Brooklyn, yesterday afternoon, 'William
-Jennings Bryan made an address, in which
"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
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
"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
"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

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

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
