IMMIGRATION COMMISSION ENDANGERED CONGRESS DECLINES TO GIVE IT MORE FUNDS POLICY DENOUNCED, AND BODY MAY BE DISSOLVED Extinction by Starvation Threatens Federal Committee Founded Under the Roosevelt Adminis. tration [Associated Press] WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—8y cut ling oft a deficiency appropria tion of $125,000 for the national Immigration commission the house to day lent its support to several mem ben, led by Representative Macon of Arkansas, who denounced the commis sion and its work and threatened It with Immediate extinction. Unless 'friends of the commission succeed in having the Item restored to the urgent deficiency appropHHtinn hill in the senate it will be compelled to suspend for lack of funds. The commission was created by an act of congress February 20, 1907. It has brought out a number of Inter esting reports dialing with conditions in immigrant ships and lives of aliens after their arrival in this country. Several other r;ports are in course of preparation. Senator DlHingham of Vermont is chairman of the commission, other members being Senator Lodge, Rep resentatives Howell of New Jersey, Bennett of New York and Burnett of Alabama, and Prof. J. W. Jenks of Cor nell university, and William K. Wheeler of San Francisco. Mr. Macon made a point of order against the appropriation on the ground it was not a deficiency. Then came a general assault against the commission by several members, Mr. Macon making a scathing attack on the body. He charged that the com mission had gone on a junketing ex pedition abroad, had spent $657,993 and had accomplished practically nothing. Denounces Cornell Mr. Maeon said that Prof. Janks devoted the first part of each week to his duties at Cornell, an Institution which he characterized as . "playing politics all the time." He said that William K. Wheeler, who .was also secretary of the Merchants Shippers association of San Francisco, drawing $10.00 a year from the association and $7500 from the commission, regarded the latter office as a political sinecure. . "I am advised," paid Mr. Macon, "that this commission went abroad in the summer of 1907, it sailed May 18 and returned September 17, and thai no report of the trip has ever been published and, in my judgment, will not, for It seems the trip was a plea sure junket for most of the members, rather than an information gathering trip. "The commission made no progress until forced to do so by the late Sen ator Latlmer of South Carolina, who threatened to return homo on the next steamer and inform the government on the floor of the senate that the com mission intended mearely to delay im migration investigation. "Messrs. Latimer, Burnett and How ell, of the commission, were allowed to go to work, while the chairman told Mr. Wheeler to come with him and enjoy himself, that the immigration problem had been thoroughly investi gated by the individual commissioners, and that only he and another know the real purpose of the commission. "I cannot swear to these facts be cause I was not present, but my in formation has been received from a reliable citizen. The members who went abroad were Dillingham. T-siti mer, Burnett, Howell and Wheeler, and they were accompanied by their families and two of the secretaries of the commission, one of them, a Mr. Crane, who, I am advised, is a nephew of Senator Crane of Massachusetts, and the other, Mr. Husband, Senator DillinghanVs secretary. Auditor Protests "I have heard that the auditor for the state department has entered a protest against a certain member of the commission for charging up as part of his expense account the amounts paid out by him for laundry, hair cuts, shampoo, shines and auto mobile rides for pleasure on the Ap plan way. "I understand that Mr. Bennett and his secretary have been abroad sev eral times at the expense of the com mission. He is one of the three mem bers of the steering committee." Mr. Macon referred to Prof. Jenks' work as influencing students "In the political way the party in power would have them walk." He declared the commission's report contained a mass of matter that could be culled at any time from the police courts. ( Chairman Tawncy of the appropria tion committee condemned the prac tice of creating commissions with "permanent appropriations." Instead of incurring expenses and then asking congress for the money to meet them, as the immigration commission had done, he said such work should be provided for by annual appropriations. Declaring that he believed the com mission had delayed its final report to prevent legislation restricting immi gration because an election was at> i proachlng, Representative Burnett \t Alabama, a member of the commis | lion, said he believed it should have concluded its work before now. SAVINGS BANK BILL READY WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—Senators Lodge and Carter had conferences with President Taft today on the postal pav ings bank bill now in committee, it is understood the bill will bo reported out tomorrow.

USE OF PUBLIC FUNDS PROBED LAND OFFICE COMMISSIONER DENIES CHARGES IMMIGRATION BODY WILL GET NO APPROPRIATION Urgent Deficiency Bill, Carrying $5, --000,000, Adopted with Reduc tion —Lloyd's Successor Appointed [Associated Press] i WASHINGTON. Jan. Refusing to appropriate any money for the ex pense of the immigration commission! the house today passed the urgent de ficiency bill, carrying, nearly $5,000,000. This Is a reduction of more than $1,000,000 under estimates submitted by the treasury department. Following the action taken by the Democratic caucus, the house appoint ed Mr. Graham of Illinois to succeed Mr. Lloyd of Missouri as a member of the Ballinger-Pinchot • Investigation committee. In the senate Mr. Tillman criticised the administration far failing to pros ecute suits against the Southern Pa cific railroad for recovering public lands granted to the railroad under the condition that it should be sold In tracts of 180 acres at not more than $2.50 an acre. Both houses will be in session to morrow. Condensation of the testimony before the last hearing- of the committee as reported In these dispatches led to the omission of an important statement of Commissioner Dennett of the general land office, regarding the charge that private telegrams were paid for out of the funds of the department. ■' This is what the commissioner said, as shown by the stenographer's record: Dennett's Reply "I have no knowledge of "any such telegrams being sent, with the excep tion of two telegrams which were sent to the commissioner of the . general land office at a critical time, stating certain remarks which were being made in a paper. These telegrams, after having been received, were taken to the chief of field service and the Western Union was notified that they must not be charged to the public land appropriation; that they related to private matters; that no bill would be authorized which was submitted for those telegrams." It appears from the record that this statement was substantiated by Mr. Newburgh, assistant chief of tho ac counts division; the purport of the testimony of both being that the tele grams referred to as transmitting newspaper articles were not paid for by the department at all. Examined by Mr. Hitchcock, Com missioner Dennett agreed to furnish a detailed statement of all expenditures from the million-dollar fund around which revolve charges of improper use, and also to furnish a list of trans fers of employes on the civil service roll, "or Schwartz rolls.". Ho denied that salaries were increased generally when employes wero transferred to ■'Schwartz roll." Mr. Hitchcock said he could not agree to answer all questions because of the naturally confidential character of his sources of Information in the interior department, and the punish ment that would follow the exposure of those sources. Mr. Dennett said a little more than $5000 worth of furniture, including carpets and rugs, had been bought for use in the general land office under the $1,000,000 public domain protection fund, but that it was all incidental to the work under that appropriation, and -was of .the cheapest kind of ma terial and bought under the regular contract system. He said the $1,000,000 appropriation had enabled the bureau to catch up largely with the work of protecting tho public domain. DICKINSON PLANS TRIP TO ISLANDS Secretary of War Chosen by Taft for Official Globe Trotter—Will Also Visit Canal Region Fre quently NEW YORK, Jan. 24.—Secretary of War Dickinson, who mtui-ned last wci-lr' from an extended trip to Porto llico and Cuba, a rently has been chosen by President Taft to do the oliicinl globe trotting for the present administration.

"The president lias told me it is his desire that 1 visit the Philippine! and Ha waii. No plans have been made for the trip, and I cannot say how soon I shall leave." The secretary of war expects also to make frequent journeys to Panama before the canal is completed. He expressed confidence that the ditch would be finished as promised, by January 1, 1915. Mr. Dickinson .said he had heard rumors in Washington that Col. Roosevelt, upon his return from Af rica, is to take active charge of the, construction of the canal.
