Speaker Beckley Backs the Member in
Position Taken---The Senate at
Work as Usual.
The House yesterday morning adopted the report of its committee
calling for the appropriation of $40,000 to make a representation of the
wealth and resources of the territory at the St. Louis Exposition,
although that sensible action was not taken without some frivolous objec
tion and then it proceeded to squander the afternoon in the discussion of
two items in the emergency appropriation bill which, after all, were
passed as they are in the bill without change. Perhaps the members
of the House are of the opinion that the emergency the bill is intended
to meet is not a pressing one. And it developed in the discussion yes
terday that some of the members had little emergencies of their own in
their several districts which they wanted met. But, after all, a quicker
way to get the appropriations they wanted would have been to pass the
items in the bill, and then ask for what they wanted.
1 However, beyond the waste of time, it all did not come to much.
