SUMMARY OF THE DAY IN CONGRESS THE SENATE. Washington, June 28.—The Senate con sumed the greater part of tlie day dis cussing the House building bill, the time being occupied in the main by efforts on the part of individual senators to secure increased amounts allotted for public buildings in cities and towns of their respective states. In no instance of this character were they successful, but in the case of San Juan, Porto Rico, Senator Foraker secured an advance from $J00, 000 to $300,000. There was quite general confidence that many of the defects com plained of would lie remedied in con ference. In reporting the bill Senator Scott, chairman of the committee on public buildings and grounds, referred to it as the "pork barrel." The agricultural appropriation bill made Its appearance in the Senate again dur ing the day in a partial conference re port. The report, was complete except with reference to the meat inspection provision and on that another conference was ordered. There was some desultory discussion of the conference roport on the pure food bill, but its disposition was postponed until tomorrow. The conference report on the Lake Erie and Ohio river ship canal bill was accepted Without debate. The LaPollette bill regulating hours of employment for trainmen was displaced by tile building bill. Senator Tillman found opportunity to make his long deferred speech on the ejection In March Inst of Mrs. Minor Morris from tlie White House by direc tion of Assistant Secretary Barnes. He reiterated his charge that Mrs. Morris had been tHitrageously treated, and said that the President had endorsed the ac tion by appointing Haines as postmaster of Washington. The last of the great appropriation bills, the general deficiency bill, was reached during the day, and a night session was held for its consideration. THE HOUSE. Washington. June 28.—The House work ed under forced draught today and ac complished an immense amount of bus iness preparatory to adjournment at the week's end. Conference reports on several measures were adopted without debate but it re quired special rules in other particulars to affect consideration and adoption of tome Important conference agreements. Interest centered about the conference reports on the railroad rate 1*111 and the agricultural appropriation bill, but both these reports were considered and adopt ed under a blanket rule permitting the consideration of conference reports with out being printed in the Record. The House expressed its confidence in Us conferees on the agricultural bill by Instructing them not to recede from the meat inspection amendment by a vote of 103 to 45. On the rate bill there was a general expression of satisfaction that that meas ure had been perfected. Without taking a recess the House la bored from 11 o'clock this morning until adjournment at 11 o’clock tonight, dur ing which time many hills on the pri vate calendar were passed. After the legislative business which kept the House at tlie grind stone until 8 o'clock, had been disposed of. crowded galleries listened to another series of po litical speeches. — /.i week—Matinees Tuesday, Thurs day and i Saturday.

T**, ,ck for Lower ires ,DE DISCUSSED jlph Says the Local As Closely Watches Every . tructure—$4,000,000 igaged in Building. iiard Randolph, the well-known prea c of the Halle-Randolph Manufactur eompany, and president of the Ala .a-Tcnnessee Retail Lumber Dealers* .relation, yesterday discussed the lum ber market, and the building going on in Birmingham at present. The feature of the interview was that recently there has been In course of construction In Birming ham $4,000,000 worth of building, and that construction work Is still being contin ued. His remarks concerning the prevail ing price of lumber, to the effect that the bottom Iras practically been reached. Is taken to be of material interest. Asked concerning the Importance, of the lumber traffic in the south, as compared to the Iron and coal Industry, Mr. Ran dolph declared that in tonnage the amount of lumber shipped from Alabama and Mississippi annually would compare favor ably with the coal and Iron shipped. The detailed statement of Mr. Randolph follows: Much Building. "Yes. there is much building being done now in the city and suburbs. Our associa tion in May employed a man to make a thorough canvass of the district to find out exactly the value, and localities In which most of the building material com ing Into the city was being used. This was done with a view, not only of ascer taining these facts, hut to find out if there was any Infringement by the whole sale men and manufacturers In the terri tory of the retail dealer, and to know if the high prices of building material then prevailing prevented the building of homes ami rental property, necessary to accom modate tlie ever-lncreaalng Inflow of peo ple to our section. "This canvass was most thorough and satisfactory to members of our associa tion. It showed the actual investment and expenditure of something over $4,000,000 and the nerve, confidence and determina tion of our people to keep up with the demands for Improvements made neces sary by our rapid growth, notwithstanding the fact that there was an Increase of something over Sl>4 per cent In the price of building material over prices which we had heretofore been paying. Making Close Study. "About the first of the month It became apparent to the members of the associa tion and to those engaged In handling building materials, that the top had been reached In prices, that the unprecedented demand tn the eastern market for our yellow pine timber was on I he wane, and that a very serious condition confronted the retail dealer who had been forced to buy stock at high prices. The apprehen sion was that a falling market would not only entail a serious loss In his stock, hut would curtail er stop building operations. Consequently, our dealers are making a close study of the situation and watching with more than usual interest for every new building started. "Notwithstanding that thus far the $4. tMto.Ooo of Improvements ascertained to be under way In May and the reported tumble In prices, the good work goes on in the city, on the South and North High lands. surburban towns and the ever in creasing "new cities" all around us. Some Holding Off. "Still we apprehend that there are some property owners holding up projected im provements. waiting for the bottom to be reached In prices of building material, and to such I want to say, that the bot tom has practically been reached In the price or yellow pine lumber In this mar ket and that my firm, the Halle-Randolph Manufacturing company published In your issue of last Sunday a retail price sheet of yellow pine lumber used In this mar ket and will continue to publish such list each Sunday for the information of those Interested In building operations and the prices therein listed a/re somewhat high er than those that have prevailed in years past. "Owing to the tact that the small saw mill shipping on a 5 cent freight rate, have practically cut all the timber avail able and as the retail dealers are now Ki tting SO per cent of their supplies on a 10 cent rate, a difference of from $2 to *3 per thousand, from mills south of us, to whom Is open the export trade, we will find In the future that the prices of lum ber In this market -will he controlled by this export demand and not as hereto fore by local consumption from small mills. Keep Up the Work. •'Therefore, it behooves us all to keep un the good work while the season Is favor able for building operations and every property owner who -has tho^prlce should continue to build so long as a tenant is available and furnish to the at ranger com ing to our city, neat, attractive homes w ith all modern Improvements and there by make him satisfied to stay with us and help build up the district. ‘it Is not the variation in the price of lumber of a dollar or two per thousand that cuts any figure. It's the new citizen and tenant that make the Investment good." _ CITY ITEMS Grand Larceny.—-Reynolds Jones, was tried in the police court yester day for grand larceny and convicted. He was fined $50 and 90 days. Name Omitted.—In compiling the list of “Third Avenue Hustlers” and those contributing to the Electric Esplanade the name of 1. R.

New York. June 2#.—Harry Kendall Thaw was Indicted today for murder In the first degree for the killing of Stan ford White last Monday night on the Madison Square Roof Garden. Ills wife, Evlyn Nesbitt Thaw, appeared as a witness before the grand jury, but begged to bo excused from giving any tes timony whatever. She was treated with < veiy consideration by Assistant District Attorney Oarvan, and by the jurors, who did ret Insist that she should answer any questions. Thaw will plead to the indictment m court tomorrow morning. No time will he .?et for the trial until Dlst • **t Attorney Jerome returns to the city next week. Formal Verdict Rendered. The grand jury's consideration of the case was brief and followed a perfunctory InqtiCr t before a coroner*.4 Jury whh h nr aid the testimony of sevaiat eye wl' ncssra to the tragedy, and rendered a f^r nat verdict that White’s deaeh had been eausro by young Traw. The latter calmly listened to the testimony, and whlle*the ; jury was out, he chatted with his counsel and a policeman sitting nearby, laugh- j ! ing aloud at one stage of the conversa tion. When the jury had completed its verdict Thaw was recommitted to the Tombs without bail. His Indictment was an nounced soon afterwards. Mrs. Thaw, fol lowing her appearance before the grand jury, crossed the Bridge of Sighs and entered the city prison to see her hus band. They talked together for a long while ahd when Mrs. Thaw finally at tempted to leave the great granite build ing she found her way blocked by the largest crowd, the police sav. that has ever gathered about the structure. She was virtually held a prisoner by the In quisitive throng for thirty minutes, when reserves from many police precincts man aged finally to clear a way for her. White Is Buried. Stanford White was buried today with simple ceremonies at St. Janies. T., I., where he had a summer home. The ser vices were 'held In the St. James’ Episco pal church and the interment was made in the graveyard surrounding the quaint little edifice. Tn the opinion of physicians who per formed the autopsy on White's body., the life of the architect was shortened not more than two years by the bullets from Thaw’s pistol. He was found to be suf fering from Bright’s disease, from Incip ient tuberculosis and from fatty degenera tion of the liver. Mrs. Thaw’s appearance before the grand jury had been looked forward to n itli considerable interest ao it was thought she possibly would tak'' advan tage of the occasion to throw some ad ditional light upon the trap. dy. After being ushered into th“ grand Jury room, Mrs. Thaw was asked: “Wlmt is your name?” “Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw.” “How old are you?” “Twenty years.” “When did you Inst see and meet Stan ford White, the deceased?" Asked to Be Excused. Without becoming excited In tiirt least, hut In a calm and rather forceful man ner, she replied clearly, with emphasis on each word: “l hope that you gentlemen will not Insist that T shall answer any mme ques tions. T must respectfully decline to an swer the questions you intend to ask me. I say this with all respect to you gui* tlemen." Mr. Gnrvan then asked her: “Why don’t you wish to answer?" Addressing the foreman, Mrs. Thaw re plied earnestly: “I might say something that might To harm to my husband, and a wife ought to do all she can to protect her husband. T beg of you not to Insist In putting further questions to me, because if you do. f will have to decline to answer" Addressing the jury, Mr. Gnrvan Is said to have stated that the district attorney’s office would not insist, unless th» grand jury so desired. The jurymen then held a short con sultation among themselves, and finally, after a few minutes, the foreman, turn ing to Mrs. Thaw, said: “The grand Jury has no deslr * to ask further questions, unless you desire to tell them anything.’’ Mrs. Thaw simply replied: “Thank you." She was then excused. Paint “Mixed on the I Premises The best architects always specify: ‘‘Pure White Lead and Pure X '4Hr Linseed Oil in original packages, to be mix/*1 on the prem- ties." Thq are two rea- sons: first, - make sure no .substitute is used in the place of Pure White Lead; and second, that the paint shall be mixed to suit the particular wood and the climatic conditions of the locality. If architects with scientific knowledge and professional reputation are so careful to make sure that only the best | l materials shall be used, is it not ft quite as incumbent on the ” ‘siw house owner to do as J much for himself, when not employing protes sional aid? Painters of reputation never quarrel with these specifications, because they realize the materials called for are necessary to a satisfactory job. If a painter is con scientious, he wilt of his own accord use nothing but White Lead which ia known to be pure. The standard is COLLIER Pure White Lead (Made by the Old Dutch Process) fiend for a booklet containing several handsome reproductions of actual houses, offering valuable suggestions for a color acheme in painting four house.

Mr. Dean was Indicted on the charge during the last sitting of the grand Jury at this place. Mr. Dean was defended by by Attorney T. T. Huey. The case has been appealed.

Judge Jackson, however, held that the company operates a railroad and must abide by the requirement. It is urfderstood that the case is one for testing the question and will be carried to the supreme court for a final decision. Notes and Personals.

HOUSE STANDS PAT ON MEAT INSPECTION BILL Washington, June 28.—Mr. Wadsworth called up the partial conference report .on the agricultural appropriation bill in the House today and it was agreed to with out discussion. Mr. Wadsworth then moved that the House insist on its disagreement to the item in disagreement of the meat Inspec tion amendment. After some discussion over the parlia mentary situation Mr. Wadsworth's mo tion that the house further insist on its disagreement was adopted on a division, 175 to 43. Then Mr. Wadsworth sprang a surprise on the House by sending to the desk a resolution that it is the sense of the House that the conferees do not recede, from its amendment known as the meat inspection amendment, and the House was face to face with the proposition of having a contest with the Senate. Mr. Wadsworth after referring to the disagreement about the date going on the cans and insisting that it was necessary passed to the legal questions involved. His platform was simple and expressed in two propositions. The passage of this Hill was necessary for the protection of our foreign commerce, and for tlie benefit of public health. Mr. Davis of Minnesota, favored what Is known as the Proctor substitute which he saief had been the substance of his minority report. It provided that $3,000,000 j be appropriated annually, and that a Lax ] of 5 cents a head on cattle and 3 cents j on sheep and hogs be collected and be j paid into tiie treasury. This item it was ; asserted would produce an amount equal j to half the cost of Inspection. This posl- . tion was also advocated by Mr. Bowie of Alabama. A vigorous protest against placing any charge on the packer was made by Mr. Burleson of Texas. Tile packer, lie said, would immediately shift the burden on the cattle growers. Mr. William of Mississippi said tlio situation is tills: “These peoplo (tile packers) have been and are voluntarily endangering the pub lic health, ami now they want the public to pay them for quitting It." Mr. Henry of Texas wanted to he right on tile question, and said lie would vote that the government should pay the tax. He called to the attention of Mr. Wil liams the quarantine hill which provided that tile government should pay tile cost, and that tile gentleman had voted for it, | and now he wanted to put a like cost, a , sanitation cost, upon the packers. “Rally round tile conferees." was the 1 slogan of Mr. Payne of New York, “stand by the Judgment of the House. Put the inspection on the government, where it belongs, and make this Inspection a model for the world." ^ rc among Mr. Payne's Impassioned sentences. The resolution that it was the sense of the House that the conferees refuse to recede, was then adopted, 193 to 45. The advocates of making the packers pay for the Inspection endeavored to secure a roll | call, but only nineteen members demand- | ed a roll call, and the chair appointed Mr. Wadsworth. Mr. Scott and Mr. lamb as the conferees on the part of the House. Fourth of July Excursiong.

Melville Drennen, former mayor of Birmingham, was asked yesterday after noon if any further steps would be taken on the part of the defense in tiie matter of the return of the salary which it is al leged that he drew in excess of the stat utes of the state, when chief executive of t'he city. Mr. Drennen did not make a' positive reply. "I have been so busy,’' said he, “that 1 have not had time to discuss this matter with my attorney. I am unable, therefore, to say Just what steps 1 will lake.” As is known, some months ago suit was brought against Mr. Drennen for the re covery of that portion of his salary which was alleged to bo in excess of tiie amount which the statutes of the state allow. It was a question then as to whether or not the City Council had the right to raise he mayors salary to an amount which exceeded that stipulated by the state. The matter through various tri bunals was subsequently carried, and it was finally decided against the defense. Judging from the statement of ex-Mayor Drennen yesterday afternoon it all de pends on what advise his attorney gives him as to whether tiie suit will lie carried still further, or whether it will he ended by the payment of the findings of tiie court.
