Leone: representing that they had been damaged in their business interests in the sum of $1,404.

The petitioners pray that the amount men tioned be paid to them in full. Report referred to the special cora- mitte on road contracts. Hep. Robertson presented the report of the Judiciary Committee on House bill G'J. relating to answers in actions involving title to land, recommending indefinite postponement. Ren. Robertson reported for the Ju diciary Committee on House bill 10. relating to the descent of property of adopted children in part, as follows: "While the bill at first sight makes a just rule of descent, we do not think it wise to make any change for the reason that, in the early history of this country there was considerable litigation as to the status and rights of adopted children and our Supreme Court then laid down certain princi ples with clearness and precision. On the basis of these decisions walls have been made, children adopted either as heirs or otherwise, and property has been settled. "We consider that, in view of these facts, it would be unwise to make any change in the status or inheritabilit: of adopted children or in the disposi tion of their property. ",We recommend that the ibill be in definitely postponed." Report laid on the table to be con sidered with the bill. Rep. Pogue presented rtihe report of the Finance Committee, a document of 92 pages, on the result of the investi gation into the books and works of the various departments of tthe Gov ernment. This was very complete and exhaustive. The report was laid on the table to ibe considered with Senate bills 4 ?nd 5. At 11 a. m. House adjourned. SPEAKER REED'S OPPOSITION. The conflicting reports as to the at titude of Speaker Reed upon present consideration of the Hawaiian resolu tions in the House and the persistent rumors of existing differences between the Speaker and republican leaders in the House prompted today the follow ing statement of the Speaker's posi tion. It was furnished by one who reviewed the entire situation with him yesterday: "The question is not of Hawaiian an nexation at all. Probably a majority of the republicans of the House are for it if obliged to vote; but many pre fer not to have the question up, be cause it will lead to delay, keep Con gress here all summer and prevent them from looking after their districts, and at the same time not annex Ha waii. "If the annexation bill cannot pass and action on it will prevent speedy action on the revenue bill, it seems bad politics to bring it up solely to cause trouble. If the Senate passes it under Mr. Lodge's lead, it will have free way in the House. In a word the question is not of annexation, but of sound party politics. "All the talk about quarrels be tween Mr. Dingley and Mr. Hitt and the Speaker is the result of overzeal of those interested. The main thing is for the Congress to pass the revenue bill, make the appropriations, avoid a long session, free Washington from local politics and leave the President and his advisers time to prosecute the war to a successful conclusion. An nexationists will then take care of themselves." Washington Star. BRYAN A COLONEL. A dispatch from Lincoln, Neb., to San Francisco says: Adjutant General Berry has re ceived a telegram from Secretary Al ger saying that the Third Regiment of Nebraska Volunteer Infrantry, organ ized by W. J. Bryan, had been accepted by the Government and that it would be added to the contingent going to the Philippines. When this news was recieved Mr. Bryan was so notified, and went to Governor Holcomb's office and a col ference was held, the outcome of which, although it has not yet been publicly announced, was that Bryan was appointed Colonel of the regiment and given his commission. Adjutant General Berry at once issued the first general order in the history of the new regiment. It was addressed to the members and officers, urging them to drill, perfect their organization and be ready for the call to mobilize in this city. Later news from Washington was to the effect that mustering officers ; would be sent here for the near future and the regiment sworn in and or dered to San Francisco, where the First of this city, under Colonel Bratt, is already located. A SPANISH TRICK. NEW YORK, June 2. A St. Louis special to the Herald says: Lupercio Martinez, a Cuban of this city, has re- ceived letters from the City of Mexico ; and Vera Cruz;, stating that Spanish j ship owners are sailing their ships un- ' der the flag of Mexico. The corre spondents say that they have called the attention of the Mexican authori ties to this fact and that they will assist the United States in preventing any misuse of the Mexican flag. They further say that several of the steam ships sailing from Mexican ports on the gulf that hoisted the Mexican flag have been successful in going through the blockade with supplies for Havana. On May 21 two steamships suceeded in making Havana by having Mexican clearance papers and flying Mexican flags. Martinez says that he will forward the letters to the authorities in Wash ington and will also give the names of Mexicans to whom they can write for confirmation of his correspondent's statement. : COMMISSIONS ADVANCED.
