The passage by the Senate without op?

for Ihn survey of Norfolk hai'hor, with
a view to getting a thirty foot or a thirty

ADJOURNMENT FOR HOLIDAYS
In Hottse Resolution is Agreed
to Requesting Papers in Con?

<By. Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Doc. lO.-Aftor
a msslon of two nnd a quarter hotire, thu
Senate lo-day adjourned until Janunrj,
4th. To-day's sitting was devoted largely
to a speech by Mr, Pettus, of Alabama,
on tno situation In Panama, in which h?
took the position that the recognition of
h? rtpubllo of ,Panama by the United
States had been premature and oft euch
a character as to render tt of doubtful
Senator Gormuii sought, but failed, to
eacure an order upon the Postinaetor
Clonerai directing him to send to the Sen?
ato the full record of tho Postofflco De?
partment His resolution to this Affect
was dereated tor the Urne by an objoc
tlor, from Mr. Quay.
Thev Morgan resolution, offered yostorv*
doy, was laid before tho Sonato, and Mr.
Puttua said that if Panama was an In?
dependent' nation it was Important to
know whether It was legitimately such.
"Was It," ho asked, "legitimately
brought Into being, or woe It unlawfully
and untimely ripped from tho mother'?
He said It was Important to know
whether the participation of tho United
SI a ten In tho birth of tho new nation
had been of a character to tarnish the
hont^r of this country.
"God forbid I" he exclaimed, ?'that thle
giant republic of ours should over become
Ino great to maintain Its own honor."
Mr. Pettus announced It to be hla pur?
pose to. Confi 13 his consideration to the
legal aspects of tho case, adding that if
the recitals should prove a severe refloc- I
tlon upon the administration the fault
must be attributed to the law and not I
to himself, He quoted authorities to show !
that do facto governments should only '
bo leeognlzed when established and de?
clared that, such law was a severe com?
mentary upon what the United States
has been doing, In Panama. No logic,
ho snld, could he sufficient to defend an
Mr. Pettus contended that if the United
States should take the canal property In
Piinarna, we should pay part of Colom?
bia's public debt, yet ho feared that thle
would not be done, even though, de?
manded by common law and ordinary
decency. He aleo declared that Colom?
bia had a right to reject its treaty with
the United States if it so desired. He
asserted that one brigade of regular
United States troops would be sufficient
tn cope with the entire force of Colom?
bia, but surely, he snld, the great power
given us. by .the Master was not to be
ui*ed by us like a bully.
.."Whenever," he added, "the nation gets
too large tO'>be*'.Just? lt; will be too large
to be respectad by Its own citizens.','
He declared -thai war against Colombia
had already been [practically waged, but
argued that no' ot-tter"authority than Con?
gress could assume this rcs|>nslblllty.
After an executive session the Senate
adjourned until January 4, 1901.
WASHINGTON. D. C. December 19.
Tho House, after being In ?aision a half
an hour to-day. adjourned tor the holiday
recess. A resolution was Hgreed to by
which the. Postmaster-General was re?
quested to forward to the' House the pa
pera ln connection with the recent post
Tho action ot yesterday, authorizing
the Commltteo on Expenditures In the
Postoffice Department, of which Mr.
Warner Is chairman, to request the pa-?
pers, was vacated, the Speaker having
announced thai a careful count of the
vote on which the previous question was
ordered yesterday on the motion of Mi.
Wanger. to agree to the resolution authoi?
Izlng his committee to request tho pa?
pers, showed that with Ihe Speaker's
own vote the final vote was a tie?107 tu
107?and the previous question had not
been ordered. Mr. Williams, the minority
leader, then offered a substitute resolu?
tion, providing that tho papers come di?
rect to the House, Instead of to ? com?
mittee, which was agreed to without op?
position, Mr. Payne (Republican, New
York), suggesting, after. Mr, Williams had
spoken, that the resolution would re?
?oive tho unanimous vote of the House
without further dlflcuesloa.
Mr. Cowherd (Democrat, Missouri), ?
member of tho Postoftice Commltteo,
spoke for that committee, saying the
chairman. Mr. Ovorstroet, had suggested
tho widest publicity to the papers re?
ceived from ihe department,
Mr. Williams, addressing Mr. Cowherd,
said: "1 want to suggost to tho gentle?
man that It has been reported, as shown
by portions of tho report of Messrs. Bo?
naparte and oCnrad, that certain things
had beon covered up; especially In con?
nection with Mr. Heath." Mr. Cowherd
replied ? "1 think the gentleman from Mis
slKslppI misunderstands tho report? I un?
derstand tho report of Mesure. Conrad
and Bonaparte to be on the aotlon of
the Postoftice Department on tho Tulloch
o barges, where It waa said there waa un
attempt to covor up something In re?
gard to Mr. Heath. I do not understand
that report to say that the report of
Fourth Assistant Postmnster-Uenoral
Brlslow, aa printed, covering about 4O0
pages, was In any way an attempt, to
cover up anything about that gentleman
or anybody else. My Impression Is If the
gentleman will examne that report ho
will nee that the ooverlng up referred to
was tho act of the Postmaster-General
In refusing to Investigate tho Tuiloch
charges." _ ?
