WASHINGTON, Feb. 18. Appropri

the bill providing for sundry civil ex
penses for 1908 were reported to tho
house today .y the committee on ap
propriations. The amount carried in

The committee failed to Include ai
clause in the l>illl > i l l preventing the Bal«
of beer In natlonaj soldiers' homes
after March 4, 8 prohibition Included
in last year's bill, but it is generally
believed that the UuUSe "ill add the
provision when the measure ie taken
up on the Moor.
Amnng the limitations in the bill is
one which will work a revolution In
the affairs of the Spanish treaty; claims
commission. At present the govern
ment pays the c..s; of taking the evi
dence of claimants, but the bill provides
that hereafter claimants are to bear
this expense.
Members of the committee believe
this change will lessen the number of I
cases and prevent the preparation ol
such oases, for claims of the sort which
are presented by succeeding genera
tions of claimants.

EIGHT-HOUR BILL
IS NOW ASSURED
STREET RAILWAY EMPLOYES
WIN OUT
Little Opposition Arises In the Senate,
but Hard Fight Takes Place
in Lower Chamber of
Legislature
Bj \ oi lit' 'i Press
BACRAMENT< >, PV b. 19 The eight
hour r daj bill tor itreel railway em
ployes, which was Introduced In the
senate by Senator Leavltl and in the
lower house by Grove L, Johnson, was
passed today In both houses of the leg
islature.
The measure was passed by tne
senate with little or no opposition,
only two dissenting votes being cast.
but In the assembly it developed Into
a bitter tight between the Los Angeles
and San Francisco delegations which
lor a little while threatened to assume
the proportions of a serious rupture be
tween those two delegations.
Following th. advocacy of the bill by
Mr. Johnson, who stated that delega
tions of the San Francisco and Sacra
mento car men had called on him ami
were In favor of the bill. Stanton,
Transue and Cogswell opposed the
measure, declaring: that the Los An- 1
geles car men protested against its
passage on the ground it would cut
clown their dally earnings, as they were
paid according to the number of hours
worked.
They believed that the Los Angeles
car men were entitled to as much con
sideration as those of San Francisco,
ln fact that numerically they were
stronger.
Target for Cross Fire
Transue put up a determined fight
against the bill and at once became the
target for a cross fire of questions from
the San Francisco delegation which
waxed warm and became personal.
Coghlan; in speaking for the bill, went
off on tangent, made a long discourse
on politics, capital and labor and pre
dicted the rising of a new and greater
labor party.
i Transue replied somewhat sarcastic
ally and was next in a wordy war
: with Hartman of the San Francisco
delegation, who said that the delega- j
tion of street car men, which Stanton i
asserted had called on him, did not
represent the Los Angeles car men and
intimated that the latter were afraid
to favor the measure or ask for any
thing for fear of being discharged. I
Eshlenian of Berkeley expressed the
opinion that the Los Angeles car men
were the "biggest buffaloed bunch in
the state," which brought forth a hot
I rejoinder from Stanton and Transue.
The latter wanted to know whether
, the real purpose of the bill was to com
pel the street railway companies to pay
as much for eight hours as for ten.
This was denied. The bill passed by
a vote of 48 to 13.

SENATOR SMOOT
DEFENDS HIMSELF
EXPLAINS HOW HE REGARDS
POLYGAMY
Utah's Representative in Congress Is
in Poor Voice and Reads Speech.
-ry Is Only Half
Filled
lly Ansofl itcd Press.
WASIHMi Ti>X. Feb. \\> Senator
Sin. "it made Ids Ion;; expected speech
In his own case In the senate today.
He road hl« spei eh, w hlch was den old
of oratorical effort, and the senator's
voice u;i! at no time raised much BDOVS
iversational tone.
Tb. re was only a iaif attendance of
senators and the galleries were half
filled, The meagerness of the audience
Was due to the fact thai lhe senate
in, i nt the unusual early hour of ii
o'i :... k.
Mr. sm was warmly congratulated
by many persons when lie took his
goat. He was follow d bj Senator Dll
lngham, who made an argument In
support of the Utah senator. Mr.
Sn t said:
i desire to state, as i have
heretofore stated to the senate and to
the country, that I am not and never
have been a poUgandst. 1 have never
had but one wife and she is my present
wife.
"There has been a more or less preva
lent opinion that the doctrine of
polygamy was obligatory upon the
members of the Mormon church when
in truth and In fact no such Obligatory
doctrine has ever existed. The revela
tion concerning polygamy, as originally
made and as always Interpreted, is
permissible and not mandatory. As a
matter of fact only a small percentage
of the adherents of the faith have ever
been polygamists. The vast majority
Of the adult members from Its founda
tion to the present have been monoga
mists.
Part of Their Religion
"The Mormon people, however, re
gard this doctrlns — although permissible
In character as part of their religious
faith and when the law was passed de
nouncing its practice, the enforcement
of the law was resisted on the ground
that it was unconstitutional, as being
an Interference with their religious lib
erty. Appeals were takt'ii to the high
est courts of the United states, every
phase of the subject was tested In the
courts and the law was Upheld. Then
the church adopted the manifesto
against polygamy, which was ratified
by the general conference of the i pie
and thereupon the practice of polygamy
for the future was abandoned.
•'In closing, let me say, under my
obligation as a senator what I have
said under oath before the committee,
that 1 have never taken any oath nr
obligation, religious or otherwise, which
conflicts in the slightest degree with my
duty as a senator or as n citizen.
"I owe no allegiance to any church
or organisation which in any way In
terferes with my supreme allegiance In
civil affairs to my country — an al
legiance which I freely, fully and gladly
give."

WOMAN SUFFRAGE
IS VOTED DOWN
ELOQUENT PLEA FAILS TO WIN
VOTES
Los Angeles and San Francisco Dele.
gations Go on Record as Op.
posed to tile Promised
Amendment
By Associated Press.
SACRAMENTO, Feb. 19.— The legis
lature today placed Itself on record ;ia
opposed to woman's suffrage by killing
the proposed constitutional amendment
which extended to women the right to
vote at all elections.
The measure, which was introduced tti
the assembly by Grove L. Johnson and
by Senator Wright of San Diego In the
senate was defeated ill both houses, or
rather failed to get the required two
thirds vote to be adopted.
Had the measure been adopted hy the
legislature the question of whether or
not women should be given the elective
franchise, would have been submitted
to the people of the state at the next
general election.
Senator Wright made an earnest pl> a
In the senate for women's suffrage, and
Mr. Johnson championed the cause of
the opposite sex in the lower house, each
one showing why women are as w< 11
qualified to vote as men and expressed
the opinion that they would use the
ballot In a better and wiser manner
than men.
How Votes Stood
The vote stood lv In favor to 15
against in the senate, eight short of tho
required two-thirds, and 47 to 28 in the
assembly, seven votes short. Notice of
reconsideration of the vote was given In
both houses.
The defeat in the assembly was
largely due to the voting on the part of
the Los Angeles members, and nearly
all Of the San Francisco delegations.
Bell, Stanton and Transue of the Los
Anyeies delegation voted against the
measure. No one opposed the measure
on the floor of the house.
The vote in favor of the opposite s^x
by Senator Greeiiwoll, who recently
figured In an alleged sensational episode
in Bakersfleld, was greeted wltn it
hearty cheer and roar of laughter.
Senator Camlnetti caused some amuse
ment by asking Senator Wright how he
would determine when a woman was 21
years of age.
