Personal controversies at a late honr yestcr-

been friven to the routine of agreeing on

At 5 o'clis?k Butler of North Carolina
moved to take up his bill prohibiting the
further isriie of interest -bearing bonds.
Hill immediately moved an adjournment,
securing an aye and "viy vote in order to
gain time, ine motion to adjourn was
defeated, whereupon Chandler followed
with a motion for an executive session.
Pettigrcw asked leavo to offer a supple

diately demanded tho full reading of the
report. This was an unexpected move for
lay. as the report was very voluminous.

The presiding oftlccr (Faulkner) ruled
that Hill's demand was regular and di
rected the clerk to" proceed with the read

Allen interposed a chorus of protests.
Allen said he hoped the senate would not
violate every decency and propriety by

At this point a more hesfi-d colloquy oc

spoke with much feeling, saying he had
never known the spirit of unanimous

PENSION VKTO f et aside.
Hoover's Rill Passed Over the President's
Objection Other Matters.
Washington, May 22. So much of the
time of the house was occupied in ran
sidcring the president's veto of a bill to
pension Francis E. Hoover, a private in
the Sixty-fourth O. V. I., and in listening
to a personal explanation from Orosvenor
relative to a newspaper misrepresentation
of his posit ion on the subject of recipro
city, thnt the time for debato on the Phil
lips commission bill wns extended until
today nt 4 o'clock. The bill provides for
the appointment by the president of
non partisan commission of twenty -one
even representatives each from labor,
agriculture nnd business, to collate infor
mation nnd consider nnd recommend
gislation to mvt the problems presented
by latxir. agriculture and capital.
At the opening of the session urosvenor
had rend a ashington spivial to a Cm
clnnnti pnper charging that at a recent
nns timt of thewnvsand means committee
fu pledging himself to vote to report a
reciproritv bill he had voted against it
Orosvenor said the correspondent had un
doulit"dlr been grosslv Imposed npon.
There had been a constant reiteration of
the charge that the w.tys and means com
mittee was rent by factional dissensions.
This charge hud no foundation in fact.
There wns no difference of opinion among
the Republicans of the committee as to
the ultimate purpose of the Kepuhlican
party to carry to triumph the doctrine of

thnt the hill be passed over the veto and

committee can never assent tothat as long
as there is a dollar in the treasury." Kirk

presented more than the usual absurdities
of a nlea or confession oi evidence.
Willis concluded the debate with a ten-

and degradation of the veto power; a re- I
assertion of the idea conveyed In Cleve

The roll wns then called on the motion
to nass the bill over the veto and resulted
196 to 47. The division was generally along
pnrty lines, but Loud of California, Quigg

Democrats to support the veto, and Cock-
