jfay Make Railroad Officials More
Honest—lnterstate Commerce
La W Considered
Associated Press Special Wire
WASHINGTON, March 18.-The house
today agreed to the conference report of
the agricultural appropriation bill, and
-then went into committee on the whole and
resumed consideration of the postoffice ap
propriation bill.
Cooper of Texas, Democrat, offered an
amendment providing that star route con
tracts should be made only with persons
residing in the states and territories
through which the routes pass. He said
the practice of making contracts with stur
route syndicates should cease. The amend
ment was ruled out on a point of order.
Moon of Tennessee, Democrat, made a
point of order against the appropriation of
$225,000 for pneumatic tube service.
The point of order was overruled and an
extended debate followed upon the merits
of the tube syslem. Loud, chairman of the
committee, defended the appropriation,
declaring that the system was a demon
strated success and should be continued.
The appropriation finally was retained.
McEwan of New Jersey, Republican, of
fered an amendment to the appropriation
of $30,500,000 for railroad transportation,
providing that the dates when the malls
should be weighed, to furnish a basis for
the compensation of railroads, should be
■Communicated secretly to postmasters.
McEwan declared that the chief deficien
cy in the postoffice revenues was due to
rallrod weighing of mails. It was extor
tionate, dishonest and unfair, and he ex
pressed the opinion that the fabrication of
false weights could be prevented if the
railroads had no knowledge in advance of
Just when the weighing was to take place.
Grosvenor of Ohio. Republican, made a
point of order against the amendment and
it was sustained.
Loud read a letter from the postofflce
department, indicating the necessity of a
specific statute making the stuffing of the
malls during the weighing period a mis
demeanor, punishable by a heavy fine.
Loud submitted the draft of an amend
ment drawn at the postoffice department.
It made it a misdemeanor for any person
to place or cause to be placed In the mails
anything during the regular weighing peri
od, with Intent to increase the weight of
the mails and the compensation paid there
for. It made the offense punishable by a
fine of not less than $500 nor more than
$2000 and imprisonment not to exceed five
years. The amendment was adopted with
out division.
Several other amendments were ruled
out on points of order. All were directed
at the appropriation bill for railroad trans
portation. One proposed to create a com
mission to investigate the subject of mail
transportation, and another to reduce the
amount to $15,000,000. Without completing
the bill, the house at 5 p. m. adjourned un
til tomorrow.
Interstate Commerce Law Is in Need
of Revision
WASHINGTON, March 18—The senate
committee on interstate commerce today
resumed its hearing on the Cullom bill,
amending the present interstate commerce
law. Judge M. A. Knapp of the interstate
commerce committee appeared to speak In
favor of the proposed bill. He said the sit
uation, so far as the present law was con
cerned, had resolved itself into this, that
the original machinery—the present law
crude and ineffective in some respects,
has practically broken down. The proposed
bill Is to provide new machinery, by which
the principles involved in the original law
may be made effective.
Judge Knapp explained that the courts
had seriously affected the law by their de
Senator Tillman inquired what reason
there was for believing that the courts
would not define away the proposed bill, as
they had the present law.
Judge Knapp replied that it was impos
sible to foretell whatlhe courts might do.
"The best we can do," said he, "is to care
fully and thoughtfully legislate on this
"It does not seem," said Mr. Tillman,
"that plain English alone is sufficient as
applied to railroads."
"Or as applied to section 22 of the tariff
law," interjected Senator Elkins.
Continuing his statement. Judge Knapp
said that section 4 of the present law had,
In its operation, been seriously crippled by
the decisions of the court. The proposed
substitute for that section, he said, is prac
tically the British law and has received
the approval of the commission, after the
most careful thought.
"As it is proposed," said Judge Knapp,
"the section will be in entire harmony with
the measure as a whole, which confers
the right upon carriers to establish rates
that are higher for short than for longer
One provision of the proposed bill, Judge
Knapp explained, made it imperative upon
railroads to publish their freight and pas
senger tariffs. In that respect he deemed
. the existing law faulty. Another important
amendment to the existing law, Judge
Knnpp believed, was that which read: "No
change shall be made in the schedule of
rates, fares and charges filed and published
as aforesaid, unless the carrier flies with
the commission a statement of such
changes and posts new schedules as here
inbefore provided, or plainly indicates such
changes upon those already posted, at
least 60 days before tho going into effect of
such changes."
Judge Knapp explained at length some
of the provisions of the proposed bill, de
scribing the technical differences between
them and those of the existing law. He
had not concluded when the committee
WASHINGTON. March is._Tho senate
committee on privileges and elections today
authorized a favorable report on the
amendment to the constitution nf the
United States introduced by Senator Hoar,
changing the time of the year for the ex
piration of tho terms of the president, vice
president, senators and representatives In
congress from March 4th until the last
Wednesday in April.
The change Is made to take effect in
1901, and if the amendment should be ac
cepted by congress and be ratified by a
lufflclent number of states, it would have
the effect of extending the terms of Presi
dent McKinley and Vice President Hobart
for almost two months. The object of the
amendment Is to avoid the harsh weather
which sometimes interferes with Inaugural
ceremonies when held on the 4th of March.
WASHINGTON, March 18.-By request
ot Secretary Long, the issue as to the en
actment into law of the naval personnel
bill will not be precipitated until the naval
appropriation bill ls passed by the house.
This change of view of the administration
was communicated to the house committee
on naval affaire today by Assistant Secre
tary Roosevelt, who appeared before the
committee at the request of Secretary
Long. Assistant Secretary Roosevelt went
$o the Capitol with the express purpose,
ander Secretary Long's direction, to urge
the Incorporation of the entire personnel
bill In the appropriation bill. He had a
brief personal Interview with Chairman
Boutelle, and, previous to Mr. Roosevelt's
appearance before the committee, the two
had a talk with Speaker Reed that lasted
an hour and a half. The speaker Informed
them that the bill, as an amendment,
would be subject to a point of order, and,
after some further discussion as to secur
ing a rule later on, Mr. Roosevelt and Mr.
Boutelle returned tn the committee, where
the latter advised against putting any por
tion of the personnel bill Into the appro
priation measure.
Some days ago Secretary Long, Captain
CroWnlnshlcld and some of the other na
val chiefs had a hearing before the com
mittee, In which the secretary stated that
he would be glad to have the entire per
sonnel bill put in as part ot the appropria
tion bill. Falling that, there were certain
features of that measure of which the
necessity is great, which he wanted In
serted now.
He subsequently submitted to the com
mittee a formal provision containing the
items deemed necessary at this time and
which he had verbally recommended.
These were to provide In the appropria
tion bill for the authority for the follow
Omission of two years' cruising compro
mise for a third of the course of training
for the naval cadets at Annapolis, and al
lowing cadets graduating from the Annapo
lis academy to be commissioned in service
without the final two j-ears of the course.
Second, changing the title of the cadet to
a midshipman. Third, Increasing the en
gineer corps by 100 skilled machinists.
Fourth, increasing the number of assist
ant paymasters by 15; and, fifth, adding 20
acting assistant engineers. The recom
mendations made by the administration
would bring 22 cadet engineers and 62 line
cadets Into immediate commission.
These recommendations, except the last
two, were set aside today, at the request
of the administration, to differentiate en
tirely the two bills.
The only items formerly recommended
that will be Included will be those relating
to assistant pas-masters and the assistant
engineers, which are considered in the
light of emergency provisions.
Representative Foss of Illinois, chairman
of the sub-committee, gave formal assur
ance that as soon as the appropriation bill
had been passed by the house, his sub
committee wou/d begin consideration of the
personnel bill, and that there would be
no avoidable delay in action.
Arrested for Burglary
A man was arrested Thursday evening
by Officer Singleton on Los Angeles street
on suspicion, and it is now thought that
the prisoner, who gave the name of Frank
Atlow, committed, in company with a
partner, a burglary of the rooms of George
Barrows and J. Mllcovlch, waiters, resid
ing at the Woodland lodging bouse, 241
South Main street. Just before 8 o'clock
Thursday evening the proprietor of the
house saw two men walking down the
stairs with a bundle of clothes. Later It
was discovered that the room of the two
waiters had been entered by burglars and
some clothing carried off. Atlow tried to
dispose of the clothes to a Los Angeles
street second-hand dealer, but the latter
got suspicious and had Officer Singleton
arrest him. Atlow was Identified yester
day as one of the men who had been seen
leaving the Woodlawn lodging house. His
pal escaped.
Got His Money Back
Fred Galvln of Ventura was twice
buncoed Thursday, but with the aid of De
tective Goodman succeeded in regaining a
portion of his money. Galvin, who has
spent a considerable portion of his young
life on a ranch, wandered Into a poker
joint at 139 North Main street, and sat In
a quiet little game. He lost a little change,
and then handed a $20 gold piece to some
body In the place to get changed. The
man handed him a couple of $5 gold pieces,
a $5 bill and some change. Galvin left with
the $15 and discovered hat the bill was
of Peruvian denomination. He called at the
police station yesterday, and Detective
Goodman took the man from the joint to
the station. The latter gave Galvin his
$5 and claimed the entire affair had been
a mistake, which it had been on the part of
A Verdict of Suicide
An inquest was held yesterday morning
on the remains of Richard Sonntag, the
bookkeeper of the Capitol Milling com
pany, who died Thursday afternoon from a
dose of morphine. The jury decided that
the poison was taken with suicidal intent.
No additional facts were brought out other
than the statement of the butcher who
was with Sonntag. The deceased had asked
him to get some morphine, which he failed
to do. It was evident from this that Sonn
tag had already provided himself with the
drug, but had desired some additional to
insure his death.

If a flood Chance Offers Reconciliation
of the Cuban Insurgents Will
Be Effected
WASHINGTON, March 18.—A disting
uished sssemblage of officials, represent
ing In their several capacities the Spanish
government and the Insular government
of Cuba, met here today. They Included the
Spanish Minister, who, In this instance,
acts as the special plenipotentiary officer
for the negotiation ot commercial treat
ies; Senor Angulo, special delegate of the
Cuban government; Senor Leonine Varela,
the Cubans control of their tariff affairs.
Havana, Joint commissioner, and Senor
Cadrana, of the Cuban Finance Division,
joint commissioner.
Primarily these officials have met to
open negotiations for commercial treat
ies between the United States, Spain and
Cuba, but in view of the present condition
of affairs, it ls not Improbable that their
connections with all the official branches
of the Spanish and Cuban governments
will permit their deliberations to take a
wider range.
Senor Varela comes direct from Havana,
accompanied by Senor Wm. Graele, his sec
retary. Senor Angulo came from Havana
some weeks ago, stopping first at New
York and arriving here last night. He is
accompanied by Mme. Angulo. Senor
Cadrana will arrive tomorrow, being now
en route from Havana.
In anticipation of the meeting on Senor
Cadrana's arrival, the Spanish Minister has
conferred with Commissioner Kasson,
with a view to arranging the opening ot
Reciprocity propositions have been un
der consideration by both governments for
some time. Considerable preliminary work
was accomplished by Minister Woodford
and the Spanish authorities at Madrid.
This is now to be carried forward and In
execution of the autonomy plan that gives
Cubans control of their tariff affairs.
Messrs. Angulo, Varela and Cadrana have
been designated by the Cuban Cabinet to
represent that body. Coming at this time
of emergency, however, the suggestion has
been made that the Cuban Commissioners
would not confine their efforts strictly to
commercial affairs if the opportunity pre
sented of aiding a reconciliation of the In
That this is in view, cannot be confirmed
in any political quarter, but it Is thought
that such a move would be made if there
were any promise of Its success.
Senor Anguelo, who ls at the head of the
commissioners appointed by the Cuban
cabinet, talked freely today concerning the
purposes of his mission. Mr. Anguelo said
that his authority was confined strictly to
commercial affairs between the United
States and Cuba. The present emergency
might Involve features which the Cuban
government would desire him to act upon,
but that would require further instruc
tion, as his only present purpose was to
deal with the commercial treaty.
Mr. Anguelo said the Cuban people de
sired self-government. Heretofore he had
felt that Spain was not willing to grant
real autonomy. When, however, Spain
put into force the present autonomous plan
it was accepted by the most advanced au
tonomists in Cuba as fully meeting their
desires. He and others, who had always
belonged to the rudical autonomist wing,
were convinced, he said, that when the
passions of the moment passed away all
Cubans would accept autonomy as giving
them home rule In its fullest sense. The
delay in subduing the Insurgents and the
failure of that element to accept autonomy
was due, Mr. Anguelo said, to the passion
engendered by Weyler's policy.
As these changes did not affect Spanish
sovereignty, he had no doubt of Spain's
accepting them when they were brought
forward In the proper form, as the Spanish
government had always declared that it
wished for autonomy, not in mere name,
but in reality. Senor Anguelo said this
modification in the autonomy plan was
quite lengthy and had been placed In the
form of a manifesto by tha. autonomist
party of Cuba.
Mr. Anguelo stated that he had no doubt
that the Cuban problem would be solved
without a conflict between the United
States and Spain. It would have been set
tled before this time, he said, if the pres
ent agitation had not influenced those who
were about to accept autonomy and In
duced them to adopt an expectant attitude.
When asked as to the present war prepa
rations and the prospect of a conflict be
tween the United States and Spain, he
said: "I do not believe there is to be a
j conflict between the United States and
Spain over Cuba, first, since the death of
Senor Canovas, the policy has been such
that the United States can have no pre
text or causet for resentment, neither as a
nation nor as a defender of the rights of the
people of the western continent in their
conflicts with the European nations, be
cause Spain, In the use of its sovereign will
and following the suggestion of the United
States government, has granted to the
I people of Cuba all the liberties compatible
j with the historic rights of Spain over tho
Island of Cuba as recognized by all civil
ized nations, the United States included.
"Secondly, because 1 cannot assume that
the wise statesmen who direct the policies
of this great nation, which represents in
an admirable manner the realization of
modern democracy, would put in jeopardy
all its wonderful Institutions by inaugurat
ing without plausible cause a policy of
military adventures which ls Incompat
ible with any genuine republic, inasmuch
as such a policy, even if attended by mil
itary success, would inevitably lead to tho
establishment of might—which ls always
an enemy of liberty—over right, which (s
now supreme. No, this nation, which, to
the admiration of the world, submitted to
the domain of right in such a grave con
flict as that of the Alabama, will not gain
say its own history and rob the civilized
world by making the destinies of this great
people depend on the eventuality of an
armed conflict without any motive or pre
Senor Anguelo and his Cuban colleagues
probably will be presented to Secretary
Sherman tomorrow, and their formal ne
gotiations will follow thereafter. .

NEW YORK, March 18.—The officials of
tho Methodist Board of Foreign Missions
have received no information about the at
tack on the American medical mission In
the suburbs of Chung King Fu on the
Yang Tse Klang by a native mob. The of
ficers of the board believe, however, that
the dispatch r, tores to their mission at
that place. The mission was established by
the Methodists In 1881, and the staff at
' present is Rev. Q. A. Myers, Treasurer;
Spencer Lewis, Superintendent, and W.
IH. Manley and J. O. Curlow. The medical
I staff consists of Drs. Woolsey and J. M.
Dr. McCartney has been stationed in
China for a number of years. Dr. Woolsey
lias been there a year.
The native population does not take
kindly to the efforts of the physicians to
relievo their sufferings.
Previously they had attacked the Roman
Catholic missionaries. Threats were made
when the Methodists sent physicians there
that they would not be allowed to prac
tice. The natives declared they did not
want any attendance from foreigners.
About Christmas time last year Dr. F.
M. Woolsey went to Kiang Peh, across the
river, to render medical assistance. He was
accompanied by a trained assistant and a
coolie. While In the neighborhood of the
Yamen Dr. Woolsey was attacked by some
natives. The crowd soon became uproar
ious and Insulting and seemed to be largely
made up of the student military class. In
spite of their Insults, Dr. Woolsey began
his work and ministered to the people for
two hours. An appeal to the authorities
was unsuccessful and Dr. Woolsey retired
whereon there was another attack, tbe
crowd yelling and hurling stones and other
Dr. Woolsey was struck several times
about the body and he was severely cut.
There was no attempt to protect him, al
though the attack was fiercest when Dr.
Woolsey was near the Tamen. The case
was put Into the hands of the American
Consul for investigation. Later two per
sons were arrested for participation In the
attack anfl were sentenced to receive 600
strokes from a bamboo and to be Impris

LONDON, March 18.—At the cabinet
council today there was an anxious dis
cussion of the new developments of French
demands in China. The Duke of Devon
shire, lord president of the British council,
who presided, has decided to postpone his
intended departure for the Riviera. All
the newspapers this morning comment on
the impossible nature of the French do
mands. The Times says:
"China ls inclined to yield through her
fear of an occupation of Hal Nan. It may
be necessary to make It very plain to the
Chinese mind that worse things than the
occupation of Hat Nan will happen if China
undertakes to settle by a mere ex parte
agreement with a third power questions
which immediately affect the safety and
prosperity of one of our most Important
possessions In the east."
The Dally Mall says: "What does It
mean? A coaling station and a railroad are
all very well; but if It comes to admitting
a French title to Hinterland or Burmah
and' Hongkong Great Britain must oppose
to the utmost of her influence and power."
