ments by Mr Morgan of Alabama and
Mr Frye of Maine reported favorably
the Joint resolution of Representative
Doolittle of Washington for the ap
pointment of a joint commission of
three senators and six members to in
vestigate the present states of the
Nicaragua canal project Senator
Morgan recited at length the past his
tory of the enterprise and its struggle
to obtain government recognition
Ho thought the time had come when
it should be decided whether the
United States would aid the project
or abandon it altogether lie declared
the world was determined to have the
canal and if the United States should
not build it some other nation would
He pointed out the advantages of the
control of tho canal by the United
States and earnestly hoped tbe reso
lution would be adopted Mr Frye
also spoko in favor of the resolution
He stated that tho government which
controls the Nicaragua canal would
also control tho Hawaiian islands and
it would be useless for this country to
annex thoso islands unless the control
of the canal was assumed

the admission of Arizona was put
through under whip and spur and
the bill for tho admission of New
Mexico was well under way when a
debate was precipitated that lasted
until adjournment The bulk of the
eastern opposition to the territories

predicated on the theory that whilo
tbe eastern states rich in wealth and
strong in population aro able to hold
their own in tbe house where the
basis of representation is the popula
tion the influence of the great states
of the union will bo overbalanced by
the increased state representation in

but one of the members changed his

To Caocne oa Tarln
Washington Dec 13 Although
forty members of the house have re
quested a caucus on the tariff bill it
Is not sure the bill will receive such
consideration Chairman Holman of
the caucus to whom the request was
presented Immediately held a confer
ence with Chairman Wilson of the
ways and means committee but noth
ing was definitely agreed upon Hol
man was taken sick beforo tho con
ference ended and went home If
Holman should not recover before the
bill is reported it is not likely that he
will issue a call for a caucus They
believe that forty or fifty Democrats
can bo found who will voto with the
Republicans and thereby the bill will
be amended in the house
Heelied Tariff Mil
Washington Dec 12 The re
vised tariff bill was laid before the
ways and means committee yesterday
morning tho changes most important
being the pearl button and tin plate
schedules Members of the majority
of the committee say the changes
were mostly from ad valorem to spe
cific duties where such changes were
necessary from a business sta Jpoint
The bill was taken up by the full
committee by sections and the
republican members offered amend
ments and discussed the bill
from time to time It is tho inten
tion of tbe majority members to vote
down all amendments offered by tho
Republicans and roport the bill as
soon as possible in its present revised
condition Tbo committee reached
the sugar schedule before adjourn
ment but no vote was taftcn neither
was there any amendment offered
It is likely an amsndmont will be
offered this morning but no change
will bo mado The majority members
say that the bill as it now stands will
be reported to the house It is expect
ed the committee will be able to get
through with tho consideration of the
bill today and it will bo reported to
tho house Wednesday or Thursday
During the discussion of tho bill Mr
Reed offered a resolution that as it
was shown that under the proposed
bill the revenue would be 72000000
short it was desirable that the com
mittee be informed in what way the
deficiency was to be met Mr Wilson
replied that the dcSiency was to bo
mot by internal revenue taxation but
tbe schedules were not completed
To Stand Unchanged
Washington Dec 14 The ways
and means committee has about com
pleted Its customs bilL Yesterday it
agreed to the bill aa it now stands
thus announcing that it would make
no more changes It had good reason
to do this as every change made since
the bill first made its appearance has
been greeted with the loudest kind of
disapproving expression It is said
that the committee agreed at tho last
moment to depart from its determina
tion to separate by two bills all arti
cles subject to internal duties and ar
ticles subject to custom duties This
departure is In putting In the customs
bill the tax on cigarettes This tax
is said to be raised from 50 cents per

turned a verdict of 15000 against
tho Missouri Kansas and Texas road
for having last May carried for Hosier
Bros 2300 head of Texas cattle from
Midland Tex to Hartford Kan
from tho importation of which Texas
fever was communicated to Kansas
cattle with disastrous results The
question of law at Issue in the case is
a vital one to transportation lines and
stockmen and is one which has never
besn decided by tbe United States su
preme court The supreme court bas
held that tho Missouri law prohibit
ing transportation lines from carrying
Texas cattle is void and that the Iowa
law making the owners of cattle com
municating disease responsible is
valid In this case however
the Kansas live stock sanitary
commission had issued a pernit
for tho cattlo and tho road had
complied with all the state and na
tional quarantine laws so that mtk
ing ho road liable under the circum
stances is a new departure aA

executive building The moeting was
short but wildly enthusiastic The
spirit of 76 prevailed and tho = o
who heard tho ringing cheers whicu
welcomed tho speech of President
Hatch of the annexation club and the
presentation of the following resolu
tions knew that tho monarchy oven
though restored by superior force of
the United States would be short
lived Since this mass meeting the
6plrit of enthusiasm which first pro
vailed among the royalists has been
in a state of fluctuation and some of
tho clearest headed leaders admit
that the success of restoration in the
present or futuro depends on tho
armed protection of the monarchy by
the United Stat03 Following aro the
resolutions adopted by the mass meet
ing November 25
Resolved 1 That we have read
with surprise and regret the recom
mendation of tho secretary of stato of
tbe United States to tho president to
restore tho monarchy lately existing
in Hawaii
2 That wo condemn the assump
tion of the secretary that tho right ol
the provisional government to exist
terminated by his refusal to resubmit
to the senate the treaty of union
pending between tho two countries
and also his assumption that the pro
visional government had at that very
tlmo submitted tho question of its
continued existence to the arbitration
of tho president or any other power
3 That we supporttothobestof our
ability tho provisional government In
resisting any attack upon it which
may be contrary to tho usage of na
tions There are over 2000 men ready
for service Orders have been issued
that no nation would bo allowed to

treated Companies of sharpshooters
all trained men will occupy the four
corner towers from tho basement to

male will allow the government to

750 to 810 troops in the executive
buildings and ammunition and stores
have been provided to withstand a
continuous attack for a month or more
should hostilities break out The
