THE SAINT PAUL GLOBE.
SESSION'S FIRST SKIRMISH.
Currency and Civil Service Debate Precip=
itated in the House.
Jim. BBOSVENDB
DEDLfIHES HIS
INDEPENDENCE.
Dingley Attacked by Walker, the Head of the Bank
ing Committee — The Differences Regarding the
Disposition of the President's Message Finally
Compromised.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7.— The session
of the house today, though it lasted
but two hours, witnessed a very lively
skirmish over the question of distrib
uting the president's message to the
various committees clothed with juris
diction over the subjects dealt with.
The conflict of authority came between
the ways and means committee and the
banking and currency committee. The
battle raged all along the line. During
the debate Gen. Grosvenor, of Ohio,
fired the first gun against the civil
service law, and this also brought the
friends and enemies of that measure
Into action. Mr. Johnson (Ind.), in a
rinsing warning, declared that, if a
1 ill to emasculate the civil service law
were passed, it would meet the presi
dential veto. Eventually Mr. Dingley,
in deference to the- opposition of the
members of the banking and currency
committee, agreed to a modification of
the order of distribution so as to send
to the ways and means committee all
matters relating to the "revenues, the
bonded debt of the country and the
treaties affecting the revenues." The
resolution was then adopted.
After the session Chairman Walker
claimed he had won a decisive victory,
and that his committee, under the or
der, would have jurisdiction of a meas
ure to, as he expressed it, convert the
greenbacks into gold certificates. But
members of the ways and means com
mittee insisted that changes of ver
biage in the order would not affect
their jurisdiction.
Mr. Dingley, after the routine pre
liminaries, from the committee on ways
and means, presented a resolution
adopted by that committee for the dis
tribution of the president's message
to the several committees having juris
diction of the various subjects treated.
Mr. Walker (Rep., Mass.), chairman of
the banking and currency committee,
asked for a rereading of the portion
of the resolution giving the ways and
means committee jurisdiction of all the
portions relating to "the revenues, the
national finances, the public debt and
the preservation of the public credit."
A very considerable debate followed
upon what the language of the resolu
tion meant, and the issue as to juris
diction on the currency problem as be
tween the ways and means and the
banking and currency committees was
sharply raised.
Before the debate, which lasted over
an hour, had been concluded, the house
was plunged into a debate on the cur
rency problem. Mr. Walker, after the
re-reading of the resolution, asked
with some heat what was left to his
committee.
Mr. Eingley replied suavely that all
matters relating to banking and cur
rency under the resolution would go
to the banking and currency commit
tee.
"There seems to be a decided con
flict of opinion as to what matters
refer to banking and currency," ex
claimed Mr. Walker, rather sharply.
Mr. Dingley protested that the lan
guage of the resolution was identical
with that of former resolutions on
the same subject, but he was immedi
ately bombarded with questions as
to the practical effect of the resolu
tion's language.
Mr. Bailey (Texas), the minority
leader, attacked the flank of Mr. Ding
ley. He wanted to know specifically
whether a measure to effectuate the
recommendations of the president on
the currency would go to the ways
and means or currency committee.
Mr. Dingley avoided a direct re
sponse.
"If it is proposed to retire the green
backs in the manner recommended by
the president, where would it go?"
asked Mr. Bailey.
Mr. Johnson (Rep., Ind.) pressed Mr.
Dingley along the same line.
"I would leave the determination of
that question to the speaker," at last
replied Mr. Dingley. The house
laughed.
Mr. Walker then got the floor and
indignantly protested that, if the
questions relating to our legal tender
money, which lay at the very founda
tion of our banking and currency
laws, were to come under the juris
diction of the ways and means com
mittee, the committee on banking and
currency might as well be dissolved.
If it was to be shorn of its responsi
bility, why continue it? He avowed
that in the last congress his commjt
tee had been steadily disregarded. Its
members had cooled their heels in
the speaker's lobby, he said, and, when
at last they were allowed to bring
in a bill, the previous question had
been demanded without permission for
debate, and he had been allowed to
address the house only by unanimous
consent.
Mr. Cow (Dem., Term.). the senior
Democratic member of the currency
committee, seconded the protest of
Mr. Walker.
Mr. Grosvenor (Rep., O.) diverted the
whole course of the debate by an at
tack on the civil service law, which
was several times enthusiastically ap
plauded both by members on the floor
and spectators in the galleries. At
the outset, he repudiated the idea that
opposition to the civil service law
involved an affront to the president.
Congress was empowered to deal with
the subject, and the president had
referred it to congress. He heartily
agreed with the president "that there
were places in the classified service
which ought to be exempt."
"I am glad." said Mr. Grosvenor,
"to go that far with the president,
even if I am compelled to part com
pany with him when he says the civil
service system has the official sanction
of the people."
Mr. Grosvenor declared that he had
kt-pt in touch with the sentiment of the
country, and that if the question were
submitted to the people west of the
Allegheny mountains, it would be bur
ied under their overwhelming condem
nation. His remarks in denunciation
of "life tenure in office" were met with

PfIRTY SQUfIBBLE.
uproarious applause from the galleries,
in which many members on the floor
heartily joined.
Mr. Bailey (Dem., Tex.) comment Ted
Mr. Grosvenor's utterances against
building up an office-holding class in
this country — a doctrine, he sa : d, which
was almost litterally emlxidied in the
Chicago platform (Democratic ap
plause).
"That is the only grod feature of that
platform, " ejaculated Mr. Steele (Rep.,
Ind.) amid laughter on the Republican
side.
Mr. Cochran (D:m., Mo.) in a satirical
speech spoke of the injustice of turning
over a subject which Mr. Walker had
freely admitted he knew all about to
Mr. Dingley, who had fathered a tariff
bill that had already produced $i0,10J,
--000 deficit.
Mr. Bland (Dem., Mo.) averred that
it was well understood that nothing
would be done with the currency prob
lem, and Mr. Bodine (Dem., Mo.) al
leged that the civil service law was a .
humbug, which the West and South op
posed. The latter gave some amusing
illustrations of its operations and caus
ed a laugh by the statement that Mr.
Cleveland had been some time in the
White house before he discovered" that
the United States were not bounded on
tho West by the Allegheny mountains.
During the progress of the debate
Messrs. Walker and Johnson had con
sulted with Mr. Dingley and a modifr-a
-tion of the resolution of distribution
was agreed upon. It struck out the
words "the national finances, the pub
lic debt, the preservation of the gov
ernment credit," and gave the ways
and means committee jurisdiction over
all matters in the message relating "to
the revenue, the bonded debt of the
United States and to the treaties of tho
United States affecting the revenue."
When this amendment was presented
the opposition withdrew and the reso
lution was adopted without division.
The house then, at 2 o'clock, adjourned.
SEX ATE SESSION.
Contest for Hie Itiuht of Way Is
Pendingr.
WASHINGTON. Dec. 7.— A new
member, H. D. S. Money, of Mississippi,
was introduced in the senate today, ail
after some brief criticism of the form
of his credentials, the oath of office was
administered to him. Mr. Money was
as- signed to the seat formerly occupied
by Mr. Daniel, of Virginia, the latter
securing the seat in the center of the
Democratic sid-?. which was occupied
by the late Senator George. During
the session 108 bills, many of which j
were private pension measures, were
introduced in addition to several joint
resolutions ard tome senate ri solutions.
An interesting contest for precedence
in consideration of Mr. Lodge's immi
gration bill and the proposed legislation
to confer authority upon the president
to act for the protection of the govern
nunt's interest at the sale of the
Kansas Pacific was pjndirg at th J close
of the session. The probab ; lity is that
it will be amicably arranged before the
senate convenes tomorrow.
Mr. Pettigiew (S. D.), during the day,
secured the passage of a reso'ution c I!
--ing upon the interstate commerce com
mission to furnish the senate a list of
the railroad companies, which have
complied wholly, in part or net at all,
with the law of congress providing that
safety appliances be affixed to railread
cars; the resolution also calls for the
total number of persons killed by the
railroads during the past year.
KNEW HER SON.
i'r.-siii.-iii MeKinley Recognised by
HiH Mother.
CANTON, 0., Dec. 7. — Once more the
children of Nancy Allison McKinley
have gathered about her couch, and
the reunion is complete. The president
and Mrs. McKinley arrived today and
find the aged mother still living. With
the children are Mrs. Abigail Osborne,
mother of Consul William Osborne;
Miss Sarah Duncan, who came from
Chicago, where she is attending school;
her brother. Jack Duncan, who came
today from an Eastern school, and
the other grandchildren, who have
been summoned from their studies and
their homes, together with other rela
tives, making the immediate family cir
cle almost complete. In the midst of
the deep sorrow of the family there is
a feeling of joy that the president has
been permitted to reach his mother's
bedside before the inevitable dissolu
tion came and that the mother might
again realize his presence and he knew
that he had been recognized. These
hopes have been granted them, and j
they now patiently and resignedly
await the end.
The president and Mrs. McKinley, to
gether with other relatives from the
East, came early in the morning, the
latter part of the journey being made
on a special train. They were taken
to the homestead as rapidly as possi
ble, and as they entered the sick room
the dying woman rallied and for a mo
ment plainly evinced her recognition of
her son and others about her. The
president has remained almost con
stantly at the bedside since his ar
rival and kept tonight's vigil, relieving
others of the children who have been
so constantly at the bedside. He re
mained close to the house all day, going
out only for a little air and exercise,
taking a walk near the house.

German Expedition
flassacred in Africa.
LONDON, Dec. 7.— According to mall ad

coast, southeast of the Cameroons, in the
Banoko country, a German expedition con
sisting of six white officers and 200 natives
recently met with a severe reverse at the

Talked of Killing Himself.
THOSE people who were in the billiard room at the Merchants hotel
yesterday, right after lunch, witnessed rather a sensational Incident,
which was the more perplexing to them as they were permitted to
remain in ignorance as to the final denouement.
Chief Grain Inspector Clausen w:>s playing billiards with a friend after
lunch, when in rushed a man who. after spying the inspector, went up to
him and at the finish of same excited remarks which were not entirely audi
ble to the astonished on-!ockers, yelled at the top of his voice, "It's not
right, and I tell ; you right now I'll not stand it. I did not get a fair
deal, and I hold you responsible for it. That stuff came from the coun
try to me in good: shape, and through your faulty grading at Mlnnf ajwlis I
have suffered a loss of $25,000, and I tell you again I do not mean to stand
It. It has about ruined me, and as soon as I get home I shall end my
existence."
Before the thunderstruck spectators realized what was happening Mr.
Clausen took the man by the arm. and led him out of the billiard room
through the corridor of the hotel, and to the storm entry, where he stood
and talked with him for possbly ten minutes. Then the man disappeared
and Mr. Clausen, rejoined by his friend, went up Fourth street to his office
In the Endicott.
The man was of medium stature, quietly dressed and with a perfectly
smooth face. He appeared to be suffering from unusual tension of some
kind. Nobody knew who he was. It was said he had sought the Inspector
at the latter's office, and had been told he was at the Merchants. Where he
went Is not known. Mr. Clausen was seen during the afternoon at his
office, but denied all knowledge of any such unpleasantness. He had, he
said, just returned from the hotel, where he had been with Banker Stephens,
of Crookston.
The people in the hotel, including the attaches of the place, who had
witnessed the affair, believed the man was a Minneapolis wheat man. The
view was expressed that he might have been under the Influence of liquor,
but the general opinion was that he was suffering from a great mental
strain. His manner was excited, and his calling Mr. Clausen by name left
no doubt in their minds that he knew to whom he was speaking. He ex
pressed his determination to the grain Inspector to put an end to his un
happy life by the use of laudanum when he reached Minneapolis. Later
in the afternoon Mr. Clausen, although he did not mention the mxn's name,
discussed the unpleasant affair with some friends, and gave it as his opinion
that the man fancied thai he had been swindled in the matter of grades on
some wheat sent in from the country to the Minneapolis market.
DEFEAT FOR DREYFIS.
Action of the Government Approved
by the Senate.
PARIS, Dec. 7.— ln anticipation of
an exciting session of the senate, the
precincts of the Luxembourg palace
were crowded today, and the police
were called into requisition to keep the
people moving. There were many ladies
and persons of prominence in the gal
leries of "the senate, and there was a
full attendance of senators. When the
opening formalities had been concluded)
the president, M. Loubet, announced
that M. Scheurer-Kestnar desired to
interpellate the government in the per
sons of the premier, M. Meline, and
the minister for war, Gen. Billot, in
regard to their declarations in the
chamber of deputies on Saturday last,
on the subject of ttu- alleged false im
prisonment of Alfred Dreytus, a former
captain of artillery, convicted by a
court martial of selling military secrets
to the agents of a foreign power.
The premier signified his readiness to
answer the questions put to him, and
the senate decided to open the discus
sion forthwith. M. Scheurer-Kestnar
then reviewed the Dreyfus case at
length.
The minister for war, Gen. Billot,
replied that M. Scheurer-Kestnar had
submitted no evidence. He had con
tended, the minister explained, that the
anonymous note was the basis of the
whole affair, and that, if it was snuwn
not to have been written by Dreyfus,

LONDON, Dec. B.— A dispatch to the

that China, hoping for the evacuation

to all the demands of Germany. The
Times, dealing editorially with the sit

permanent occupation of Kiao-Chau,
and points out that the evidence is
