CONGRESS DECLINES TO GIVE

Extinction by Starvation Threatens
Federal Committee Founded Under

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24.—8y cut

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
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.
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
"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
"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
"I have heard that the auditor for
the state department has entered a
protest against a certain member of

part of his expense account the
amounts paid out by him for laundry,

"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

i WASHINGTON. Jan. Refusing
to appropriate any money for the ex

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

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:
"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
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
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
He said the $1,000,000 appropriation
had enabled the bureau to catch up
largely with the work of protecting
tho public domain.
