The Deficiency Appropriation^Bills Under Discussion.
Morganand Thurston Lock Horns Over^tbe Pacific Railroads Question^Liable to Indefinitely Postpone^the Chambers Session.
Washington.July 12^ In the senate^to-day a resolution by Butler was^agreed to directing the secretary of^state to secure from the diplomatic rep^^resentatives abroad full information as^to the operation of postal telegraphs,^telephones and |M^stal savings banks^Consideration of the deficiency appro^^priation bill was then resumed.
Theexpediency of attaching private^claims to the bill was discussed at^length. Foraker had offered an amend^^ment covering three Insurance claims^adjudicated under the Bowman act^Hale made a point of order against the^amendment. The vice president In de^^ciding the point held that ^private^^referred to such measures as were for^the lM^neflt of individuals without tp-^plicatlon to the general public. For this^reason the Foraker amendment nil^ruled out as covering private claims.
Thedecision operated to exclude a^large number of private claims which^were to be offered as amendments to^the deficiency bill. In view of this ex- I^elusion of private claims Hale secured^the adoption of an amendment appro^^priating 11.000 for extra labor to enable^the committee on claims to examine^fully all pending claims and to report^a comprehensive bill covering all meri^^torious claims, to the next session of^congress.
ilearoffered an amendment for the^payment of a judgment of the court of^c laims for tl.310.427 In favor of the^Southern Pacific railroad company. Al^^len proposed a modification of the^amendment providing that the money^Is^ retained in the treasury until the^final adjustment of the claims of the^I'nlted States against the Southern Pa^^cific and Central Pacific railroads.^White took occasion to say that If this^amendment was pressed In its original^form there would be protracted debate,^and no Immediate adjournment. Hale^appealed to his associates not to^press the amendment, saying he would^move to table It If extended debate re^^sulted Chandler also argued that the^session might be indefinitely prolonged^If the amendment was pressed. There^^upon Hear withdrew the amendment.
Morganoffered another Pacific rail^^road amendment providing that no part^of the slaking fund ui tie I'nlon Paci^^fic Railroad company held in the treas^^ury of the I'nlted States In pursuance^of the agreement between the president^of the I'nlted States or any officer of^the I'nlted States and L.iuls Fitzger^^ald, chairman of the reorganization^committee of the I'nlon Paelfic railroad^company or any other company or eat.^company or any other Company^or corporation should be sur^^rendered. Morgan spoke at length In^support of the amendment, saying the^pending agreement between the execu^^tive branc h of the government and the^I'nlon Pacific reorganization committee^was in flagrant disregard of the law^amounting to robbery, which, when^fully understood, would cause umuze-^tnent among the Americ an people.
Morganseverely crilloiseef the agree^^ment made with the reorganization^committee. At another point Thurston^uWimrtd to Morgan s reference to hl;n^as counsel for the receivers of the Pa^^cific railroad, saying lie had not acted^In that capacity since December, lSDa,^and while a political service might not^Involve any ciuestion of propriety yet,^it was desirable to have the facts up-^pOaf correctly. The receivers and their^counsel win officers of the court ap^^pointing them. Thurston said.
Morganmade un extended legal argu^^ment to show that the I'nlon Pacific-^railroad property could not be sold^without the consent of congress.^Thurston look exception to Morgan's^claim that the government's lien wan^not confined to aided portions of the^road, but embraced all Its property,^whether aided or not. Thurston con^^tended that the I'nlted States supreme^court had held the Hen of the goveri.^ment to extend only to the mileage aid^^ed by the Issue of subsidy bonds. Mor^^gan spoke for over three hours, ap^^pealing to his associates to support the^amendment and prevent the consum^^mation of w hat he regarded as a seri^^ous menace to the government.
Hale.In charge of the bill, made the^point of order that the Morgan amend^^ment was new legislation and not ap^^propriate in an appropriation bill. He^agreed, however, to withdraw the point^of order If a vote eould lie taken with^^out delay.
Whindemanded a yea and nay vote,^which pr^iiiil*.*d to bring business to a^halt as Hale declared there was not^a nuorum in the chamber or In the^city.
Thurstonbriefly controverted the^points of Morgan's argument, saying^the (lending proposition was designed^to prevent the taking of the I'nlon Pa^^cific ciuestion out of the politics of the^West and also to endanger a settlemet^,^on a most advantageous basis. He re^^newed the (ailnt of order withdrawn^by Hale. The presiding officer. Clark^of Wyoming, temporarily in the chair,^announced that he would submit the^isilnt of order to the senate.
Thevote was about to be taken when^Hale withdraw that paragraph of the^bill to which Morgan's provision was^an amendment, thus disposing of the^entire subject. The hill was then laid^aside and at 4: :V, o'clock the senate^held an executive session and ad^^journed.

Thehouse conferees were standing
stifflyfor the house schedule on wool,^contending that the sen.it. salsa would^be most oppressive upon manufacturers.^The senate classification of third class^wools Is especially objectionable to the^carpet manufacturers and Senators Pen^^rose and Quay have been ^stive during^the day In their efforts to secure an ad^^vance to 12 cents In the value of wool^that may bt admitted at four cents. The^senate schedules make 10 cents the figure^of tlemarkatlon In value fixing a duly of^seven cents a iiouuel on .ill wool above^that price. The Pennsylvania senators^say that under tln^ classlil. alien ^^^ per^cent of the carpet wool* would I., made^to pay seven cents duty and tin result^would be to close out many of the carpet^makers.

Chicago.July 12.^Chairman Caldwell of^the Western Passenger association left^to-night for San Francisco for tbe pur^^pose of taking charge of the Kast bound^Christian Kndeavor business for all tbs^roads of the association. A meeting of^the association was held to-day aad af^^ter the situation had been thoroughly^discussed It win decided that tbe beat^thing to do was for the chairman to go^to San Francisco In person and see that^the rates and arrangements for the coaV^ventlon are carried out.
Caldwellhas most ample powers salt^^to matter what action he may decide^upon after reaching San Francisco, the^road, of his association 'will back him Ie^the fullest extent. The situation In Saa^Francisco has !^*^*n quite serious and^the western roads are determined to^prevent the impending demoralisation if^they can. There are three things ht^which the western roads claim agree^^ment i. being violated. One Is the sc-^tion of the Colorado and t'tah roads la^allowing stop overs after It was agreed^no stop overs should be allowed on east-^bound tickets save by the northern^transportation roads which remained^out of the competition for the west^^bound business which wss guaranteed to^them
Therouels of the. Western Passenger^association now will make every effort^to see that the northern roads are treat^^ed a. cording to tht contract. Another^matter Is the action of the Southern Pa-^cine In extending the time of sale for^ihe return tickets, which western roads^believe will result in demoralisation of^rates, the third matter Is reported pay^^ment of commissions in San Francisco,^which Is contrary to agreement. All that^tile western roads desire is to prevent^any demorallsuiion in rates and to see^that the good faith Is kept with Worths*^em transcontinental roads.
