"lie Steering Committee of the
Senate Looking After It
No Amendments of Any Importance
Were Adopted
fropo.-ltlon to Get the Pooling Bill to s Vote
F.vcn it a Sunday Session Is
to Be Held
Washington, Feb. 22.—The Democratic
steering committee of the Senate, alter
many postponements, held a meeting to**
day ami decided to recommend Co the
Senate that Senator Hutlcr should be per
mitted to move at 3 o'clock tomorrow for
the consideration of the pooling bill,
that this bill should be continued as the
unfinished business until 12 o'olocJc Mon
day, and if ItShould not be disopsed of by
that time it should give place to other
business. The programme was imme
diately construed into a decision to hold
a Sunday session and this fact was made
the most of by those Senators who oppose
the bill. I'hc advocates of the bill did not
idtnir in many words that their pur
pose included a Sunday session, but they
toufesst"! tllttt if they should succeed in
felting the bill up they would use their
ltnio-t endeavors to have it. voted upon
•efoiv the; expiration of the time set for
.ts consideration, ami as this time would
include only about, three hours of the
S'lttirdav session and one hour of the
Monday session they would necessarily
have very limited time for the bill with
out either night or a Sunday session.
When Senator Butler, who was cha r
nian of tiie Interstate Commerce Commit
tee, who hits charge of the bill, was asked
what his purpose was, as to a Sunday ses
sion, he said he did not wont to be quoted
a- saying anything that could be con
strued into a threat, and be would only
say he would use his best endeavors to
get the bill before the Senate, and that if
he should succeed in that he would con
tinue his exertions in its behalf until a
rote could be reached. He felt confident
of the success of the bill in case a vote
COUld be reached, and he believed a clear
majority would be shown on the vote for
consideration. While Senator Butler
would name no figures, it is understood
other friends of the bill claim that a llnal
vote would show two-thirds of the Senate
in favor of it. The opponents concede
that if a vote should be taken it
would pass, but they are determined
in the. declaration that it shall not reach
the point when the test of its strength
shall be made. The tactics which they
will pursue were forsbadowed in Senator
Pettigrew's brief speech in the Senate
just prior to the adjournment tonight.
The feeling is such as to make it clear
there will be a very sharp clash when the
effort is made to take up the hill, and the
indications are for a period of mostdecided
paliamentuy sparring against the meas
ure, which will probably be led by Sena
tor (iorman on the Democratic side and
Senator Aldrich and Chandler among the

Quay presented ft memorial from the
Manufacturers' Club of Philadelphia
strongly urging that the cause of the
financial distress was the assault on tho
American protective system, anil indig
nantly protesting against the course of
the President in borrowing money from a
foreign syndicate. The memorial closed
with an earnest appeal to Senators and
members to so adjust the tariff duties as
to overcome the distress of the Treasury.
The House provision that the Secretary
of the Interior reduco expenditures for
contract schools 20 per cent annually, so
that at the end of live years such expendi
tures shall cease, was struck out, but the
appropriation is reduced 20 per cent from
last year's expenditures.
Whm the executive bill comes before
the Senate a motion will bo made to
strike out the provision for the Utah
Commission. It is claimed that as Utah
will become a state in the fall, with full
powers, the commission should be abol
ished. The commission will continue un
til July 1.
Himator Mills has given notice of the
tallowing amendment to the sundry civil
•ppropriation bill: "And all laws which
■ uthoritse the Secretary of the Treasury to
ell bonds for any purpose are hereby re
pealed. "
There were numerous objections, and
linong them one from Mr. Pettigrew
which was emphasized by the brief but
pointed statement he made.
It was in the nature of a disclosure that
ii private agreement had been reached
among the Senators whereby the pooling
bill will be taken up at 3 o'clook tomor.
row afternoon and held before the Senate
all night and over Sunday until passed.
The statement came so unexpectedly
tine) was the sequel to such active work
-uroii ;hout the day by tho friends of the
pooling bill that it created something of
a sensation among the Senators and spec
tators. Mr. Pettigrcw added to this an
nouncement that he would take effective
steps to defeat the passage of the pooling
bill by objecting to the disposal of the
Indian appropriation bill or other meas-'
lives having precedence. The contract
school item of the Indian bill was com
pleted in such form as to provide a 20 per
cent reduction from the expenditures ot
last year. Mr. Morgan of Alabama spoke
throughout the afternoon in favor of a
judicial system for the Indian Territory,
but his amendment to that effect was
finally ruled out of order. Two House
bills were passed amending the articles
of regulation of the navy. A spirited
contest arose over the construction of the
bridge over the Delaware River at Phila
delphia. It was linally agreed to take a
vote on the question tomorrow noon.
Mr. (iorman secured unanimous con
sent that unobjected cases on tho calendar
should be taken up at night sessions
next Tuesday.
The Indian appropriation bill wan then
taken up. The pending amendment was
that of Mr. Pettlgrew, of South Dakota,
that of the $1,104,3f>0 appropriated for
industrial and day schools for Indians
$715,000 shall be used for contract schools,
and that 20 per cent of the latter shall be
used in purchasing such contract schools
as may be offered for sale.
A vote was taken on the amendment of
the Appropriation Committee, striking
out the House provision that the Secre
tary of the Interior should reduce the ex
penditures 20 per cent annually, so that
at the end of live years the entire expend
iture for sectarian Indian schools shall be
at an end. The committee amendment
was sustained —yeas, 41; nays, 23.
The cffe tof tliis was to do away with
the House provision for the gradual aban
donment of the contract schools during
thi' next live years.
The Petti grew amendment was defeated
—yeas, 13; nays, 3(1.
Lodge withdrew his amendment offered
last night, fixing three years as the limit
for the abandoning of the contract s hools
instead of rive years.
With the changes made, the provision
for Indian schools makes a reduction of
20 per cent from the expenditures last
year, but leaves future Congresses to make
such further reductions as they see fit.
Morgan offered an amendment for the
establishment of United States courts in
the Indian Territory. He spoke of the
barbarous condition of affairs among the
live civilized tribes, where an armed ven
detta existed.
Perry urged that a territorial form of
government was the best remedy for the
evils existing in the Indian country.
Train robbery, lawlessness of all kinds
and the absorption of Indian lands by a
few persons constituted the main abuses.
The discussion of conditions in the In
dian Territory lasted through the after
Mills made a point, of order against
Morgan's amendment on the ground it
was new legislation and being submitted
to the Senate the amendment was de
clared not in order.
Call, in charge of the Indian bill, sought
to have a time fixed for a final vote. There
were objections.
"If this bill does not pass today or early
tomorrow," said Call, "then some of the
remaining large appropriation bills will
surely fail."
At this point Pettlgrew, Republican of
South Dakota, came forward with a most
emphatic objection.
"It is understood," said he, "that a
plan is on foot to get this bill out of the
way and then to take up the pooling bill
at 3 o'clock tomorrow ami sit it out even
over Sunday. 1 want to say here and
now distinctly that the plan will not suc
ceed if I can prevent it. And what is
more the pooling bill cannot become a
law if I can do anything to prevent it,
especially it cannot he passed on Sun
Pettlgrew make his statement with the
evident consciousness that the Senate
rules permitted the opposition of one man
to be very effective. this, anil the other
objections, prevented any time being
lixed for completing the Indian bill.
Call was willing to lix it at any time be
fore adjournment, but Chandler objected
and then, at 5:16, the Senate went into
executive session and ten minutes later
The Home Hears Some Objections from Mr.
Washingotn, Feb. 22.—When the speaker
called the House to Order at 11 o'clock,
less than fifty members were present.
On motion of Mr. Bynum the Senate
joint resolution was adopted extending to
Mexico the thanks of Congress for the
high honors paid Isaac P. Gray, late
United States Minister.
Martin of Indians, chairman of the
Committee on invalid Pensions, asked
unanimous consent to extend the evening
sessions tonight (for considering private
pension bills) to 12 o'clock.
Jones of Virginia objected,
After a debate, in which the propriety
of the Government taking a hand in
suppressing railroad strikes was disc ussed,
the motion to strikeout the appropriation
for the pay of marshals was withdrawn.
The House then into Committee of tho
Whole and resumed consideration of the
general deficency appropriation bill.
When the paragraph relating to the
eleventh census was reached Mr. Hepburn
wanted to know when the reports of the
last, census were to be published. Five
years had elapsed, he said, and yet but
two of the twenty-six volumes had reached
the public.
Mr. Breckinridge, in charge of the bill,
replied that all tho material would be in
the hands of the printer by March Ist,
and the volume would be published there
after as rapidly as possible.
Mr. Livingston, Democrat of Georgia,
moved to strike out the appropriation of
$121),tlOO for United States marshals fees.
It precipitated some discussion.
Mr. Boatner criticized the appropria
tion on the ground that no specific claims
of these had been furnished.
Mr. Cameron, Republican of Illinois,
defended the appropriation. A large por
tion of the sum was to pay deputy mar
shal) who were in Chicago on the occa
sion of the riots there a year ago. The
amount of these fees could only be estim
ated, for, he said, vouchers were not
transmitted to the Department of Justice
until they were paid.
On motion of Mr. Boatner a prnvi sion
was added to the paragraph requiring the
Attorney-Genera! to report to Congress a
list of the persons to whom this money
should be paid and the amounts paid
Gradually the discussion drifted into
the question of the Government taking v
hand in the suppression of the strike.
Mr. Breckinridge expressed his appre
hension that the doors were opening too
wide when great corporations were allowed
to go into the courts and secure protec
tion for their property at great expense to
the Government.
Henderson, Republican, of lowa, in an
eloquent response, called attention to the
resolution passed by Congress after the
Piesident had sent troops to Chicago
commending his action. The Govern
ment, said he, must afford protection to
interstate commerce and must enforce the
mandates of the courts.
"I am glad," said he, "to live in a
country where the'executivo met his duty,
as Mr. Cleveland did, manfully and cour
ageously, and where Congress with one
voice endorsed his action.
"The storm tins now blown over," he
continued, "and the men who took their
lives in their hands, who responded to
the call of the law and helped to execute
it, should have their pay. Most of them
are poor. Now, when the trouble is
passed, can we afford to haggle and growl
about paying them their due? Shame
upon Congress if it fails to do its duty."
Mr. Livingston argued that it was not a
question of refusing to pay the honest ob
ligations, of tho -Government, but it
claimed that much of this appropriation
would illegally go to deputy marshals who
were illegally engaged in protecting pri
vate property which should have been
protected at the expense of the city of
Mr. Livingston finally withdrew his mo
tion to strike out the appropriation.
Mr. Livingston offered an amendment
to pay C. B. Payne, Charles Morgan, N.
0. Mordccai and the Southern Steamship
Company $2910 for mail services rendered
some time ago. The amendment went
over temporarily, as did one offered hy
Mr. Tracey, Democrat of New York, to
pay the employees of the House and Sen
ate an extra month's pay.
An amendment to pay the widow of
Thomas McCoy of St. Paul, the late Con
sul General at Liberia, $2000, was agreed to.
Mr. Terry, Democrat of Arkansas, of
fered an amendment to pay Jason Black
burn of Little Rock, Ark., a member of
the Fortieth Congress from Louisiana,
$17,700, the balance of salary due him.
The chairman of the Committee of the
Whole (Mr. Tarsney) ruled the amend
ment out of order.
Without oomple ing the consideration of
the bill the committee rose.
A bill was passed to amend an act
granting a right of way through the In
dian Territory to the Kansus and Gulf
Railway Company-: also, on motion of
Tracy, the Senate bill to postpone the
time for the enforcement of the new regu
lations tn prevent collisions at sea.
At fi o'clock the House took a recess
until 8 o'clock, the night session to be de
voted to the consideration of private pen
sion bills.

so far as the department is is In

Blackburn's: Amendment to the
Civil Service Bill
Must File Statements to Show What
They Have Done
No Bounty Will Be Paid Persons Engaged
In Refining Imported Sugars—The
Commissioners' Powers
Washington, Feb. 22.—Senator Black
burn, on behalf of the committee on ap
propriations, today introduced an amend
ment to the sundry civil bill to provide
for the payment of the full bounty on th*
sugar produced in 1893, and for the pay
ment of eight-tenths of a cent per pound
on the production of 1894. The amend
ment for payment of the first class claims
carries an appropriation of $238,289 and is
as follows:
That there shall be paid by the Secre
tary of the Treasury to those producers
and nianuracturers of sugar in the United
States from maple sap, beets, sorghum or
raw sugar cane grown in the United
States, who complied with the provisions
of the bounty laws as contained in the
schedules of the tariff act of 1800, a
bounty of two cents a pound on all sugar
testing not less than ninety degrees by
the polariscope and one anil three-quarter
cents per pound on all sugars testing less
than ninety and not more than eighty de
grees, manufactured and produced by them
previous to the 28th of August, 1804, and
upon which no bounty has previously
been paid.
The provision for the payment of a part
of last year's bounty is that there shall be
paid to those producers who complied
with tbe McKinley bounty law by filing
application for license and the bonds re
quired prior to July 1, 1395, and who
would have been entitled to receive a
license bounty of 8-10ths of a cent a pound
on sugars actually manufactured and pro
duced in the United States, testing not
less than HO degrees, during the period of
the fiscal year ending June 30, 1805, com
prised in the period commencing August
28, 1894, aud ending June 80, 1896, and for
this purpose tf),000,000 is appropriated.
No bounty is to be paid to any person
engaged in refining sugars which have
been imported into the United States, or
produced in the United States, upon
which the bounty herein provided for has
already been applied for.
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue
is empowered to make regulations for the
payment of the bounty and to employ two
revenue agents, in addition to those al
ready employed, for the transaction of the
Bold Roy Bandits Brought Up With a
Round Turn
San Francisco, Feb. 22. —A. gang of boy
pirates, after operating with singular
boldness and remarkable success for the
past 18 months has been rounded up and
the quartette landed in prison. The en
tire outfit, comprising a sloop and row
boat, a wagon and team, with a large
quantity of provisions, was captured.
Captain Wilcox, known as tbe "King ol
tbe Pirates," is an experienced sailor
and piloted tbe craft across the bay on
stormy nights, which best suited the
piratical operations. The gang boldly
sailed up to tbe wharf, and under cover
of darkness, stole anything they could And
on the wharves or on vessels discharging
cargo. Provisions were preferred, as most
easily sold. All the plunder was taken to
the Alameda side and unloaded on tbe San
Leandro bay, where a warehouse was lo
cated for the storage of the stolen goods,
subsequently sold from door to door at
prices far below the market rates. So bold
were the pirates that they continued their
depredations on a wholesale order, and
their low prices were explained on the
pretense of a cut in provisions by whole
sale houses. Their capture was the result
of incautiously offering a large consign
ment of Hour at one-third the market

the Hour delivered on the following day,
meanwhile notifying the police. Kvidence

Wealthy Pagans Will Lease and Operate the
Bidwell Rancho
San Francisco, Feb. 22.—A syndicate of
wealthy Chinese of this city, composed of
members of the Six Companies, has se
cured a lease of the fruit ranch
owned by General John C. Bid
well, the Chico millionaire. Bidwell's
orchard was for many years the most ex
tensive in the state and still ranks second,
containing between 4000 ami nOOO acres
planted in deciduous fruits. Nor has tbe
syndicate stopped at the one place. Sev
eral large orchards in the northern
fruit belt, comprising the districts
about Maryiville. Vina, Willows, Red
Bluff and Oroville, aggregating several
thousand acres, have been secured at
rentals from $1000 to $5000 a year. The
past two seasons have been so unprofit
able to orchardists that they are glad to
lease to Chinese, who are able to hire
coolies at half the wages a
white man would be obliged to
pay them and can thus afford to pay big
rentals. A local cannery, owned ami op
erated by Chinese, will handle the prod
ucts of these leased ranches. In the
orchards white laborers will be unable to
obtain employment, and serious labor
troubles are feared during the coming sea
