Mr. Moon .previously, in presenting the views of the minority, said: Moor\ Had Talked for Minority. "Mr. Speaker, the controversy between the two parties in this House on the admission of the territories of Arizona and New Mexico, and Oklahoma and Indian Territory, has been very sharp and strong for some years past. The dem ocratic party or its representatives in this body, have felt that it. was to the Interest of all the people of the United States that the balance of power in this government between the sections might be preserved in the federal Senate with four states being made instead of tw«r> out of these territories. But in the con sideration of the case of Oklahoma and Indian Territory we were confronted with the principle that has always been sa cred to the democratic party—the de mand of the people of these two territo ries for statehood together. Yielding our own views in order that the voice of the people might be heard, the minority of the committee on territories readily acceded to the proposition of the majority for the union of Oklahoma and Indian Territory. For the very reason that we agreed to the union of these two territo ries we have opposed the union of Arizona % and New Mexico, because it was appar ent to us that the people of those ter ritories did not desire union, and we felt that it was against the principles of government, against the theory of both parties to force an unwelcome union upon two territories. (Applause.) “The principle tteit moved us in the other case was lacking. We said that this House ought not to enforce the union of these two territories. We saw this House by a large majority, vote us down as the majority of the commit tee had done. Again In conference, after the bill Fame from the Senate, we saw the contention or the House was sus tained by a majority of the conferees, and then from the speaker we witnessed that w'hich seldom has occurred in this or any other body. Delegate Smith’s Words. Delegate 8mith answered Mr. Moon and In his speech to which the speaker took umbrage, ho said: "Mr. Speaker: Three times through the House of Representatives; twice demo cratic and once republican, and in a re publican House having the support of sev eral members now on this territorial com mittee. we have succeeded in passing bills for the creation of separate states out of Mexico and Arizona. The less said about the way this bill has fared the better for the history of this Congress. ‘There is a law in Arizona that If one legislator trades with another on the legislation before that body he is guilty of a very high misdemeanor and if the governor shall attempt in that benighted land to use his veto power, he would be absolutely voted down in every degree. We shall at the next session of this Congress, when the election returns are shown, demonstrate to this House wheth er or not. in spite of what 1 conceive to be a bribe of $5,000,000 in this bill—and T rejected that before the committee— we have a people above such considers f Doctor G win' CURES Varicocele, Stricture, Loss of Manly Vigor, I Piles, Kidney and Bladder Trouble Private Dleeases all chronic diseases ' OF MEN AND WOMEN Successfully Treated and Cured.

(Applause on the dem ocratic side.) INSPECTION BILL FAILS TO PLEASE (Continued from First Page) disposal of an executive officer to be drawn upon at his discretion, without leg islative enactment, seems to your commit, tee to be an abdication on the part of Congress of one of its important func tions. “Practically all of the precedents touch ing the payment* of government officials are In. line with the recommendation your committee has made in this case. “There seems to be good reason why this praotice should be changed now. The pure-food bill now pending before Congress, if enacted Into law. will entail for Its enforcement a very considerable expense. “One of t'he most important results which it is hoped will follow this legisla tion will be the reatoratloti of public con fidence not only in our own ‘country but In other countries, in the purity and wholesonieness of American meat and meat food products. “Your committee does not believe that ' tills object would be attained by legisla tion which requires those who are to be inspected to pay the cost of the inspection. On the contrary, we believe that the knowledge of this fact would discredit the inspection and cast suspicion upon it. Favors Payment By Government. ”Jn his recent message to Congress, transmitting the Neill-Reynolds' report, the President of the United States recom mended that the cost of the proposed in spection be borne by the packers, but stated plainly that he would favor ihe government's paying it were it not for the danger of an insufficient appropria tion. Your committee believe they have met this objection by the provision in corporated in the substitute. This provi sion follows the language of a provision for a similar purpose which has been satisfactory for many years in supplying Ihe requirements of the customs ser vice.” A minority report is in course of prepa ration by Representatives Us mb of Vir ginia and Bowie of Alabama, and will be filed with the House tomorrow. The Minority Report. The minority report of t'he House com mittee on agriculture tomorrow will con tain three main points of difference with the majority provision. These sre: 1. That the cost should not be put on the government. 2. The court review. 3. The waiving of the civil service reg ulations for one year In the appointment of Inspectors. As to t'he cost provision the report will state that the appropriation of $2,000,000 can be justified only on two grounds: 1. As a. means of preserving the busi ness of the packers. 2. The protection of the health of the A merican people. The answer of the minority to the first is that the packers are well able to take care of themselves, and should expect to pay the expenses Incident to the preser vation of Oheir business. As to the second, if the packers have been the faolty ones In bringing about the conditions requiring drastic remedies, they should be willing to bear the cost of the remedy. The court review amendment accord ing to the minority report gives the right of review to the packers, but gives no such right to the government, thereby creating a dangerous precedent. The waiving of the civil service regula tions, It is contended, ‘will fill the pack ing houses with inspectors appointed by political Influence which would handicap them as free agents Marine Hospitals td!

GREAT INJUSTICE DONE TO PACKERS --’ Manufacturers Take a Look for Themselves LITTLE FAULT TO FIND Some Improvements Could Be Made In Minor Departments, But They Not of Especial Im portance. Chicago, June 14.— the committee of the National Association of Manufacturers, appointed to make an examination of the packing establishments at the Union stockyards, has completed its work, and will submit its report to the National as sociation tomorrow. The committee con sisted of President Van Cleve of St. Louis, president of the National association; David li. Pardy, ex-president of the Na tional association of Indianapolis, and El liott Durand of Chicago, vice president for Illinois. All are practical business men. and j familiar with the general conditions of j factory work. They say in their report \ that with no announcement of Intention ; they presented themselves before the j packers and requested to be allowed to j make an investigation on their own ac- i count. They were given the freedom of the plant singly or collectively with guides, or without, as they might elect. Work Was Systematic. “The work of Inspection," the commit- i tee says, "was not conducted In a hap hazard way, but was systematized, laid out and followed point by point to a final conclusion. Dr. Jos. Hughes, president of the Chicago Veterinary college, ac companied the committee, and the as sistance of the Chief government inspec tor was Invoked, and they rendered val uable service In the way of expert testi mony /ind a detailed description of their ! part of the work. The committee followed the government inspector in their regular routine from start to finish, and it is said not a carcass escaped their eyes, and if by any carelessness on the part of a single individual an animal did escape, it would be detected by some one of the three inspectors. It was amply demonstrated that if there was a question of doubt re garding the healthful condition of a car cass, the suspect from that moment passed out of the Jurisdiction of the fac tory employers, was placed under lock and key until It entered the rendering tank." The committee learned from the gov ernment inspectors that 93 per cent of the stockyard traffic was in fresh meat against which very little complaint has been entered, the principal charges be ing against the curing and canning de partments. The committee did find much to criticise In the way of sanitary con ditions and’asked idt a conference of the principal owners of the large pack ing houses, which was cheerfully granted. To these reports the committee presented every point of opinion of individual mem bers. Great Injustice Done. “In summing up,” the committee said, "we decided that a great injustice has been done as well as an irreparable dam age to the greatest industry of the coun try. While many details of a trivial na ture might be improved upon the gen eral conditions involving sanitary, gen eral cleanliness and a production of whole some food 'were far better than the average hotel kitchen, or even the kitchen of a large percentage of private resi dences and largely superior to conditions found in a large per cent of the smaller markets In city and country. “The sanitary conditions of the work men in the summer time while not per fect, were all that could be expected, where so many are congregated In close proximity. “None of the factories is conducted as a show plant, but as a plain, every-day business, where everything possible Is turned to account, like all other well oonducted business enterprises." No Evidence of Offer to Pay. * Madison. Wls..

The revolutionary propaganda, has been conducted so actively among the sol diers of the Preobrajensky guard regi ment which has been considered one of the most faithful in the service, that the commander of the regiment hss ordered the reading of ail correspondence ad dressed to enlisted men. Quantities of letters to soldiers from their home villages have been seized in which the writers implored the soldiers not to act against Parliament, If they should be ordered to do so. but rather to defend the deputies. The propaganda is also affecting officers at the capital, a number of whom have been relieved from duty with regiments In sympathy with the revolutionists.
