Considered by the Senate in the
Form of a Bill for Furloughs
A Dull Day in the House, the Calm After the
Free Biker Storm. . ,
Washington, March 28. In the Senate
to-day a bill to Include Lot Xo. fiS, Block
89, Hot Springs, Ark., in the publlo reserva
tion there, was passed. Among the bills re
ported from committees and placed on the
calendar were the following: Appropriating
$100,000 for a public building at Pierre, a
D.; to secure the introduction of domestic
reindeer into Alaska. Mr. Morgan offered
a resolution, which was agreed to, calling
on the President for the correspondence
with the Argentine Republic on the subject
of reciprocity, and for information as to arti
cles exported thereto from the United States
on which the United Stales requires a 're
duction of the customs duties imposed by
the Argentine Republic so as to make re;
ciprocity fair and equal.
The Senate bill !o allow 30 days leave to
employes in the Bureau of Engraving and
Printing was then taken up and discussed.
Air. Sherman said there was some reason
why annual lurloughs should be given to
men in regular, permanent employment
tinder the Government, but none why it
should be given to men employed on piece
Why Mr. Test Opposed the Bill.
Mr. Vest was opposed to the whole sys
tem. If it were applied to private life it
ould virtually stop employment through
out the country. He wanted the professed
friends of the workingmen those who un
derstand bow to manipulate the labor vote
to understand that they wound find the pas
sage of the bill a difficult campaign experi
ment. Mr. Hale remarked that the workingmen
of the country had no interest in the matter.
They were not at all concerned in the move
ment. It was all the other way. In passing
the bill, tbe Senate would not be legislating
in the public interest, but legislating for
class interests and against the workingmen.
After further discussion Mr. Hale moved
to lay the bill on the table. The motion
was defeated Teas, 16; nays, 33. The vote
in detail was as follows:
Yeas Messrs. Allison, Berry, Cockrell,
Coke. Glbon, of Louisiana; Hale, Hoar,
Jones, of Arkansas; Hansom, Sawver, Stock
bridee, Vance, Vest, Washburn, tVhlte and
Nays Messrs. Allen, Bate, Butler, Call,
Cameron, Carey, Chandler, Colquitt, Cullom,
Davis, Dawes, Dixon. Dubois, Gibson, of
Maryland: Gorman, HansbrouRh, Kyle, Mc
Millan, JIcFhoron, Morgan, Palmer, Peffer,
Perkins. Fettisrow, Prjgh, Sander. Shoup,
Squire. Stanford, Stewart, Tnrpie, Yilas and
Voorhees 33.
An Amendment Quickly Agreed to.
Mr. Hale in order that the Senate might
see what was before It in the matter, and
what would be irristibly demanded, offered
as an amendment the insertion of an addit
ional section making the provisions of the
law apply to aU regnlar employes of the
United States whether they be employed by
the year, the month, the week, or the day.
The amendment was agreed to, without a
division, and then the bill was recommitted
to the Committee on Education and Labor.
House bill to amend the act of August 6,
1888, authorizing the construction of a
bridge across the Mississippi river at Bur

Mr. Vest, from the Judiciary Committee,
reported a bill to fix the terms for holding
court in the Eastern district of Texas, and
it was passed. After an executive session,
the Senate adjourned.
A Dull Day in the Hotuo.
Although the news had gone forth that
the Committee on Rules would not to-day
report a resolution for the consideration of
the silver bill, the House galleries were
filled with spectators, and there was an air
of anxiety pervading the members in the
Chamber. The Speaker laid before the
House a communication from Representa
tive Joseph McKenna. of the Sixth District
of California, informing the House that he
had sent his resignation as Representative
to the Governor of California. The com
munication was spread upon the journal.
The Speaker also laid before the House a
communication from D. D. Donovan, ot the
Sixth Ohio District, stating that on page
2030 of the Congressional Record he was
recorded as voting in the negative on Mr.
Burrows' motion to lay the bill(silver)on the
table. He was not in the. hall when his
name was called on this or any other roll
pertaining to the silver bill. As his physi
cian; Dr. Hazen, had given positive orders
that he should not leave his room, he was
obliged to write instead of making an expla
nation in person before the House. Ine
Speaker stated that the correction would be
made and the communication spread upon
the journal.
On motion of Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, a
resolution was adopted calling on the Secre

More Spicy Testimony In the Investigation
of the Pension Office Attorneys and
Employes Who Kept Knnnlnj I. O. TJ.
Accounts with thoEanm Family.
"Washington', March 2S. G. . Lock
wood, a patent attorney of this city, for
merly Chief Clerk of the Interior Depart
ment, was the first witness called' by the
Pension Office Investigating Committee,
to-day. "Witness told of a request that
General Raum made to him for a loan of
money for a lew days, to help him out He
could not loan the Commissioner the money
himself, but tooc him to Mr. Thompson,
the President of the National Metropolitan
Bank, who he thought might accom
modate him. Mr. Thompson refused
to accommodate the Commissioner because
of some personal feeling against him (the
Commissioner) on account ot the latter's
refusal to promote a clerk in the Pension
Office that he (Mr. Thompson) and other
persons, including Senator Plumb, had
asked him to promote. Mr. Thompson
agreed subsequently to lend the money to
Mr. Lockwoo, who in turn loaned it to the
Commissioner. The Commissioner dis
claimed to him (witness) that he had any
feeling against Mr. Thompson, but said he
would soon have a large number of promo
tions to make, and would consider the case.
The loan was subsequently paid.
A Bank President's Testimony.
Mr. John "W. Thompson, the President of
the National Metropolitan Bank, referred
to by the previous witness, testified that he
knew General Raum, but not intimately.
He detailed the circumstances attending the
request for a loan. He had told Mr. Lock
wood, the attorney,, that he had no feeling
in the matter: that he had not much confi
dence in Raum, and that he was a good deal
of a politician. He (witness) had expressed
to the Commissioner the hope that if it was
consistent with his duty he would make the
promotion. He did not know whether Mr.
Lockwood spoke to the Commissioner about
it or not at the time, as General Baum was
in the office, bnt out of hearing. "Witness
refused to give the name of the lady clerk
whoid promotion he had asked for. She
said subsequently that she had not been pro
moted, and hod been treated a little roughly
by Green B. Banm, Jr. "Witness stated that
he had said he had no confidence in General
Baum. The witness declared that he did
not seek to compensate or bribe General
Kaum to secure the promotion.
"William H. Barker, formerly Chief of
the Becord Division of the Pension Office,
was the next witness, He said there had
been charges preferred against him while
in the Pension Office of borrowing money
from employes and not returning it These
charges followed him to the Treasury De
partment, where he had obtained a position,
and he resigned. "Witness said the entire
amount of money he had borrowed in "Wash
ington was 5620, and he had lost $12,000 in
speculation. He had received, he admit
ted, information from "W. "W. Dudley in re
gard to stocks, on which he nan actea.
Telephoning to Dudley at' All Times.
The witness also said that persons in the
Pension Office -had spoken to him about
iford. one of his assistants, using the office
telephone after business hours, one of the
persons to whom he would talk being "W.
V. Dudley. Mrs. Pithian had once offered
him (Barker) money in return lor promo
tion. "Witness reported the matter to
Green B. Raum, Jr., and Mrs. Pithian was
not promoted. Witness said he had bor
rowed $50 from a clerk named Donohne,
whom he had made a section chief, Dono
hue getting the money from,a clerk named
Morse. The note not being paid, Donohue
wrote witness a letter during office hours
saying that unless the money were paid im
mediately, Morse would have him (Barker)
arrested. "Witness paid the money and im
mediately reduced Donohue to a clerkship,
(but without reduction in salary) for in
subordination, in writing such a letter dur
ing office hours. After a good deal of ques
tioning the witness said Gscen B. Raum, Jr.,
probably got a part 'of the 550, as he and
witness were borrowing money back and
forth of each other.
Thomas Farnett,an attorney and formerly
an employe of the Pension Office, was the
next witness. He told of the ciroumstances
attending his discharge and his efforts to
secure a reinstatement. He attributed his
failure to cet back to his refusal to recog
nize John Baum (son of the Commissioner),
as an attorney in a case in which there was a
fee of $35 involved, unless he obtained the
consent of the Attorney of Record.
Indiana Claims Advanced Kefore Election.
"Witness said that before the election of
1890 there were pension claims from the
State of Indiana advanced for a considera
tion. He cited a case from Columbus, Ind.,
he had handled, in which Mr. J. J. Dunbar,
Representative Cooper's opponent for Con
gress, was interested.
Regarding the working of the completed
files order, witness said that about 5 per
cent of the cases that were sent to his divi
sion as complete were really complete.
The first lot of cases that came along were
Lemon's cases, "which always came up
smiling with a complete slip." These cases
of Mr. Lemon's included many old claims
that had been in the omce lor a long time.
"Witness regarded the completed files order
as a detriment to business.
In concluding a reply to a question, wit
ness remarked that he would like to show
in parallel columns his record in contrast
with that of the Commissioner in discharg
ing him, and at the same time keeping
Theodore Smith and a number of women
reputed to be of bad moral character in
office. This remark was finally stricken
out, and the committee adjourned till

A Close Call.
Mr. J. P. Blaize, an extensive real estate
dealer in this city, narrowly escaped one of
the severest attacks of pneumonia while in
the northern part of the State -during the
recent blizzard. Mr. Blaize had occasion to
drive several miles during the storm and
was so thoroughly chilled that he was una
ble to get warm, and inside of an honr after
his return he was threatened with a severe
case of pneumonia or lung fever. Mr. Blaize
sent to the nearest drugstore and got a bot
tle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, of
which he had often heard, and took a num
ber of large doses. He says the effect was
wonderful and that is a short time he was
breathing quite easily. He kept on taking
the medicine and the next day was able to
come to Des Moines. Mr. Blaize regards
his cure as simply wonderful and says he
