IteiiKirU of CniiKroMunii I). .1. Footer In Pntor of n Conference on the Menturr. Following ate the r'Ui.irKs of Hep. D. .7. Foster, on the adoption of the rule in House, March 22d. sending the statehood bill, relumed ft run the Senate with amendment", to conference. Mr. Speaker, every consideration of propriety and orikily piorcdure lequlres the adoption of this rule, and tho refer ence of this bill to a committee of con ference. This bill does not repiesent any I hasty action on the part of the House, or I on Hie part of the majority of the House. , Tile bill was repoited by a committee that had carefully conxldered it. The I majority of lbe House, which Is rcspons Ilble for legislation heie. and wh'ch never hesitates to assume that responsibility, went into conference lo consider wliat should be done with the bill, and after due ron-idcr.ition It decided that tile House onqht to pass the bill nnd send it to the Senate for its Concurrence. The House acted upon the lecommendatlon of lh.it majority, and passed the bill and sent it to the Senate for its com urrence. Now, if Hie members of the lloase com prising that republican majority which passed the bill have any convictions nt their own. if they are actuated by what they believe to he for the best Interests 'of this gieat country, they ought to stand liy tho-e convictions and send the bill to conference. They should Indicate by their action here thai they aro not to be. turn ed aside 01 to lx; blown down by every bieath of hot air that conies to us from the north end of the Capitol. (Applause and laughter.) The bill as It passed the House, embodied the statehood for Ari Kona nnd New Mexico. And nothing has 'occurred during the few weeks that have i elapsed sinco the bill passed the. House to , change in any way tho question of state hood for those two Territories. The char acter of the two Territories has not c hanged in this brief time. Their popula tion has not materially increased. The sands are as parched, the mines as lich, the irrigated patches as green and fertile, as when we voted for double statehood If, therefore, wo who supported the bill u few weeks ago have any self-respect. If we have any tegnril for the dignity and prestige of tli" House, we will stand by Hiis resolution and send the bill to con- Why, our distinguished friends on the other side, who nre urging us now hi the mint earnest way to back down and con cur in the amendment ot tho t-'ennte .cutting out statehood for Arizona and New Mexico, would be standing m their places Jeering at us for our lack f leadership, for our lack of ability to resist the encio.ichnients of the Senate if wo were pioposlng to yield at this time and agree to the Penalo'aniend ment cutting out statehood for those two Territories. ;. aro nf)t Itermlniug to-day wli.it will be it.- fate of the hill. AVc aie deciding to-day Hint the bill, with the Semite am.i. Iments, shall take the usual course-sh.iU tent to a committee of conference When that committee srports the Hons, will have an nppnttunlty to determine whit Its final position upon tin. proposi tions Involved shall te. Now we are standing for our sejf-respei t, We arc standing for the dignity and Integiltv .unci prestige of the Mouse. We aie stnnil 'Ing for the proposition that when, as the (representatives of S'l.OOO.tVH people, we, af iter due consideration, dellbeiately crystal- nzii our tonvictioiiB nnd send to the Sen nte for concurrence a bill embodvlnc Jthoe. convictions, we are not to be ex pected to surrender to or adopt tho sug gestlons of that great body until we have had an opportunity to meet It In confer- jence and to satisfy II, If possible, that w'e, mid not it, are rigid, It Is a matter of hlstoiy that in the r."th Congress the House considered this very mutter, and finally sent to the Sen ate for concurrence a bill creating four States out of theso four Territories. You remember what became nf that bill, Yon recall how the Senato so amended it as to provide for the very double statehood lor which tin; House Is struggling In Its effort" to pass this bill. It Is a further matter of history that In tho TiSth Congress the Mouse, after reflecting up,,,, ,no course taken by the Senulo In the preced ing Congiess, and aHer many personal Interviews with many of the member1) of the Senate, passed a bill providing fur the s.ime double statehood for which the Senate had stood in the preceding Con gress. That bill failed to receive (he np prov.il of tho Senate, lint we were as sured that tho failure was duo to acci dent. Then at tho opening of this filth Congiess, after listening to tho lecom mendatlon of President Itoosevelt Indors ing Hie double statehood proposition, this bill was passed nnd sent to the Seunto for It coiicui icnce. The propositions in volved In this bill, therefnrn 111 e not new lo the Congress. Kach nf the coordinate branches of the Congress has expiessed its view upon these propositions, Now. let us send the hill to conference. Ami let us send It with sufficient momentum 10 Impress upon the other coordinate biauch of Congress that In passing the hill Hie I Inure stoo.l for Us c onvictions. (Applause,) WOMAN'S WAV.

Somebody must look after the general health of the Knsllsli language. The Hon. Andrew C'ainegle has provided trained nur.'es for its orthography. Here Is the Hon. ImcIoi Hayncr. of Maryland, saying In the Senate: "That looks very much like the court had never expressed an opinion on the subject that bound them in any way." Mr. Lodge may be said to represent the purHt and Puritan essentially the gram marian'sspirit. Kven if he had quarrel ed with Mr. Hnyner's numbers we should not; and as for the Idiom with "like" It 1m racy ot Snulli and the Southwest. Somewhat as "Father" Taylor, of llos ton, iald of his son-in-law, we say of "like" in this use that while not a saint. It Is one of the sweetest little sinners In the woi Id. The Hon. Henjamin Hyan Tillman often has a homely, Hunyanese, Defoeian, downright speech that Is most attractive. For Instance: "I am trying to clean mv own skirts without throwing rocks t any one else." lie doesn't mean the everlasting rocks, but pebbles, such .1 "rock" as David "heaved" at Goliath. To throw "rocks," to "rock" the party of the second part, wns one of tho delights of Imyhood when Plancus was president. "Rock," In the noun sense at least, covers ,1 wide area, Maine prohibition and the Palmetto dis pensary have both been "rocked." Mr. Tillman arid tho "Yankee?" are at 0110 on "rocks." Possibly, however, tho lion. Shelby Moore Cullom and other occiden tals may have heaved "dornlcks" in boy hood's happy days. Of "locks" (the noun) In this senre ono dictionary says superciliously: "Vulgar. TJ. P." Another word deposit vault calls It "colloeiulal, local, U. P." Not too se verely local; of laigcr range, perhaps, than the lexicographer guessed. Collo eiulal'.' How damning! What Is language for? And "vulgar" Is only "common." Wo congratulate Mr. Tillman on being "colloquial," "vulgar." "local," and "I'nl ted Slates," Now the Hon, Champ Clark, the Pike County Pitt, hits the celling of tho House with his sublime head and says: "Wo spent nearly the whole dny jow crlng about corporations." ".lowering:" we thank Missouri for the word. It speaks for Itself. It looks llko a Urn cousin of "Jawing," a descendant nf "Jaw," or Its. brother "jow," One dic tionary admits "Jowering as a noun only: "(Dial, 1 S.) n dispute, contention. "Dispute" and "contention" 1110 pale and nasty fellows by the side of "Jow ering." "Speaker Cannon had a Jowering with the Senate." "Oen, Ciiosveuor jow- ered with his constituents." "Mr. Till- innn Is it great jowerer." I he language Is enriched, The pure nlr of the Ozaiks makes the pages of the dictionary flutter.

Kadi egg greeted with wild huzzas by tho spec ial group of backers of that pen, and toward tho close of the competition tha enthusiasm became almost rloions. Thrro was some inclination to suspect several of the titleless contestants of surreptitiously Introducing eggs in to the nests during the night, and d. pito tho fact that the pens were lock ed nnd sealed every night, on several occasions eggs were found In one oC the cages next mornlnn. The owner of tlieso hens claimed that they wera "nlsht layers," and two all-night ses sions were held to test his statement. In both cases all tho birds went to roost and stayed there till morning. Mr. Hosenthal-Murphy, the owner ot tho supposed night layers, wns much put out by their failure to make good nnd said he could not understand It. His hens were eventually ruled out for professionalism-. It was discovered that they had laid for money during the moulting season, Tho event was so Important that Consul D.mlcls of Sheffield sent a re port on it to Wasnington. He an nounces that tho winner was a pen of four Huff Orpingtons, who laid 120 eggs In one month. It was conclusively shown by this match, says Mr. Daniels, that style and tine feathers don't mako ,1 prize winner among hens. Oftentimes tho showiest nnd most motherly looking birds were the poor est layers. Kven the fact that a hens father was a prize winner and medal holder seems to cut little ice. In lay ing, continues the consul, what stands a bird in good stead Is the fact that its mother and grandmother wero great layers and that Its male, parenta also camo of 11 good laying strain. It thus appears that hcrdlty plays a3 im portant a part among hens as It does in tho human race. Wcw York Globe. SHOULD PRESERVE NIAGARA!

Democratic! leaders of the Ilouso have been Incubat ing a plan to force the majority to net 011 labor legislation. Thero have been nu merous confluences of late to this end, and piobably theie will be a full parly con ference befoio long to discuss the wisdom of laying down an ultimatum to the speaker. It has virtually been ngieed th.it state hood shall be put In the balance with tho antl-ln.limctlon bill and the eniplovcrs' liabilities' bill, Tho passage of those thtco lneaMiies, they believe, can be sreured if tho speaker and the committee on rule can ho hroiiRht to terms. The plan Is to rcfuso all unanimous consent unless an agreement is made on these bills, and to demand roll calls mercilessly on all de Mied legislation, As long as the minority can muster forty votes the speaker can mako little headway with tho business of the House, Tho object of the democrats primarily Is to get action for s-nUhoma and Indian Territory, but they look for party advan tage, also from their favorable attitude toward the labor legislation.
