TALE OF A PIG IRON TRUST.

made by the Carnegie Iron company
to form a trust, controlling the entire
pig iron trade of the country.
Local iron dealers recently received
communications from the Carnegie

considered and advancing lengthy
arguments to prove the benefit a trust
would be to all concerned.
The promoters of the project propose

for its suddenness and for the tem

shipment sold at $9 Wednesday of last

NGTON, Feb. 10.— During al
entire session of the senate
Indian appropriation was un

en (Neb.) enlivened the pro
a few minutes before ad

ious legislation, sent to the house of
Iresentatlves by the senate. He de.
meed the speaker's action in this
ard as a "disgrace" to the congress
1 «-to the American people.
Then a point of order was made
against him for the use of improper
language, concerning the other branch
of congress, Mr. Allen said that he was
stating only the truth.
Gen. William Booth, of London,
founder of the Salvation Army, offi
ciated as chaplain at the opening today
of the senate's session. Mr. and Mrs
Booth-Tucker, the son-in-law and
daughter of Gen. Booth, -were in the
gallery during the prayer. Previous
to the meeting of the senate the entire
party held a brief reception in the
vice president's room.
Mr. Chandler (N. H.) gave notice that
he would, tomorrow, call up the Corb.tt
case immediately after the morning
The Indian appropriation bill was
then considered. Considerable discus
sion arose over an amendment proposed
by the committee, providing 'that here
after r.o Indian or tribe of Indians shall
lease for mining purposes lands that
are not patented to said Indians."
Mr. Rawlins supported the amend
ment and referred to efforts that are
constantly being made by private in
dividuals and corporations to secure
Ir.diar. lands, particularly mineral
lands, by lease from the Indians with
the approval of the secretary of the

and entertainment for the public. The
control by the L. A. W., without direct
pecuniary profit, invites public confi
dence to an extent that could not be
accomplished ln any other manner."
Mr. Mott called attention to the
manner of determining the amateur
national championship and claimed it
Is at fault.
"For obvious reasons," he continued,
"the national amateur championship
should be determined entirely at the

Potter Again President.
The next business before the assem
bly was the election of officers and
nominations for president were de
clared in order.
Vice President Morrison took the
chair at this point in the proceedings
and Mr. Van Valkenburg. of Wiscon
sin, at the request of the Empire state,
placed in nomination Isaac B. Potter,

After the enthusiasm over the nomi
nation of Mr. Potter had subsided,

Chief Consul Jenkins, of New York,

Fred Gerlach, of Chicago, on behalf

nomination George D. Gideon, of
Pennsylvania, ex-chairman of the na

as the Moses of the league.
This created almost as much enihu

second vice pres'dent and J. C. T-m< r

The committee amendment was
agreed to and at the conclusion of the
reading of ths bill it was thrown open
Mr. Kyle (S. D.) proposed an amerd
ment that all or any part of the sum
of SIGS.SL'S. now in the treasury to the
credit of the Sioux Indians of the Crow
Creek reservation in South Dakota,
may be used for the purchase of such
cattle and agricultural implements as
will promote their welfare. The amend
ment was agreed to.
Mr. Wilson (Wash.) presented and
secured the adoption of an amendment
appropriating $30,000 for school build
ings and repairs on the Puyallup re^er- j
vation in Washington.
An amendment was adopted appro- !
priating $25,000 for the construction and j
equipment of an Tndion industrial !
school of the Fort Keogh military j
reservation in Montana on a site not j
exceeding 1.000 acres.
Mr. Jones (Ark.) ofTered as an amend
ment to the bill the agreement between ]
the I'nited States commissioners to |
negotiate with the five civilized tribes !
and the commissioners on the part of !
the Seminole nation, and it was agreed !
In the course of the discussion of an
amendment offered by Mr. Thurston, |
Mr. Allen (Neb.) made a sharp attack
upon the speaker of the house of repre
sentatives. He declared that it was
impossible to secure the passage,
through the house, of many meritorious
measures because one man stood at the '
entrance of the caverns Into which pro
posed legislation was dumped, and
■.yr uld permit nothing to be done about
that of which he did not approve. He
"In the other end of the capitol this
one man stands for 328 and his bold,
unwarranted, undignified action was a
disgrace to the congress and to the
Further along in his remarks Mr. Al
len reverted to the power exercised by
the speaker of the house, declaring '
that in view of the impossibility of se
curing consideration of meritorious leg
islation the truth ought to be known
to all people in the country. If the
truth hurt or if it broke any rules he
was not responsible.
"I want it understood," said Mr. Al
len, "that I hold myself responsible
at any time and in any place for such
statements as I may make or hav_
made on this subject."
Mr. Allison made a point of order
against the language used and was
sustained by the vice president.
Mr. Allen took an appeal to the sen-
nomination for treasurer. The unani

each by the secretary and they were

an end today in the defeat ofrthe proposition.
A measure with this end view was in
troduced by Representative Simuel Smith, of
Michigan, and it recei\id the', indorsement of
Commissioer of Pensib*ps Evans. The ques
tion has been agitating the committee at
each of its meetings, and today, after a very
spirited discussion. Representative Norton

demanding a vote on the question of favorably
reporting it to the house.
The vote disclosed five members of the
