Contract Arising Out of Constitution Adopted in 1863. (By JUtocUted Vre*,) WASHINGTON, "Jan. 22.-Weat Virginia'? share of the debt outstand ing against Virginia when tho States ncparated in 1861 was fixed in a spe cial master's report to the supreme court today at more than $1 -',000,000. The report,/ presented br Special afaater Charles K. Littlefleld after a long series Of hearings, ls expected to be made the order of the court. The court held in 1911 that West Virginia must pay $7.100.000 of the principal of the dert, which totalled $33.000.000. The qvestions of inter net and participation in Virginia's as ceta in 1861 were no: decided. -The special master reported that West Virgina was entitled to share to the extent of $3,400,<fo0, minus como 1500,000 already paid, in the Virgina sinking fund and turnpike and railroad bonds on which the debt was based and which were valued at a to tal of $14,000,000. He siso held, how- , ever, that West Virginia must pay not only the $7,100,000 principal, designat ed in the court's deere tv but interest on it from 1861. Representatives of West Virginia tonight estimated tb ut interest at $8,000.000; bondholders claim it will amount to $14,000.000. "I believe that the provision fo:- tho ^stetting ju^nrUy*8 inten^^^'Mtmattt". to u provision in tho West Virginia constitution, "and that thc same wise provision, that applied thereto before the . S?paration and that the 'accru ing Interest' for which Weet' Virginia was bound to provide and which she waa required to assume by the con tract, was the 'accruing interest' on the existing debt, evidenced by the .'<"-ui? of Ita bonds, making the amount not only dennlte certain, but an Inseparable part of debt itself. If this construction la correct, West Virginia would be liable for 23 1-2 per cent, (the ratio of Weat Vir ginia's resources to those of Virginia) ol' *aecrui;g Interest' cf such portion of Oebt as -she ultimately turns out to be 1U ble to pay." Virginia's suit to compel West Vir ginia to assume a share of the T861 debi was begun In the supreme court In 1907. The 1911 decision left ?d iustment regarding Interest and par ticipation In assets to the States them selves. After a Joint commisolon rep resenting them failed to agree. Vir ginia asked the .court in 1911 to en ter a final decree in the case. West Wgtata. at the same time asked to be allowed to share In the Virginia assets at the date of separa tion ,and Virginia' asked* that West Virginia be compelled to nay interest from that date. Wiest Virginia held lt eho-uid pay interest only from the date of the courts final decree. Mri Llttjefieid criticised that contention. Vletory For We?t V?ratela. CHARLESON. W.

TO HEARS APPEALS FOR AND AGAINST IMMIGRATION BILL WILL ACT ON THE MEASURE SOON! Unies* Signed or Vetoed by Mid night Thursday It Becomes a ' Law. (By Associated X-nwt.) WASHINGTON*, Jan. 22.-For more! than three hours today President! Wilson listened, to appeals that ho sign ' the immigration bill and pleas that] he v.Ho it, voiced by spokesmen ot 500 men and women who packed the East room of-the White House. The speakers were labor . leaders, ! publicists, social workers, students and others, most of them contending for or against the literacy test. Those) opposed to the bill, declared the lit eracy test and others of its restrictive | features are not true tests of the fit ness of an immigrant; tboseadvocatlng j the bill argued such restrictions were needed to preserve the standards of life of American working men. At .the conclusion of the arguments j President Wilson said he would ? act I on the bill soon. Unless ho signa oz vetoes it by midnight Thursday it will j become a law without his signuture. The president has indicated strongly, however, that he will veto the meas ure because of the literacy test. The possibilities of repasslug the bill over the president's veto are freoly dtscasscd- in congressional circles- j When President Taft vetoed an immi gration bill because of the literacy the senate promptly repasted it veto, but i\ few votes of tho the house. SOniS champions of tue hill believe both houses could now re pasa IL Its opponents are sure lt ta impossible. The nresfdept at todey's haartet! sharply called to order one speak? r j who discussed the motives of the o:.- | position aide, but freely allowed ap plause which followed the close, of j most of the addresses. J. H. Patten, of Farmers' National Congress and the Farmers' Nationall Union, told the president the farmers wanted further restrictions against immigration- before ways of distribut ing newcomers were worked out. When Patten charged that many of] the bil I'M opponents desired to "Knis slanlze" America, thc president stop ped him and asked that thc "question of motive" be omitted. The president's approval of the bill j as a protection to American working] men was urged by William M. Clark, who said he represented organizations ] of. railroad emplojV numbering 350, 000 men. F. A. Dennis, who said he repre sented 245,000 members of religious I and patriotic organizations in New Jersey and New York, also favored the j test Opening argument for opponents ot] the bill, Representative Galllvan, of Boston, asked all on his sid? of the | question to rise, but President Wil son objected, saying he would not be | influenced by numbers. Saul Cohen, representing the Inde pendent Order of King Bolouon, spoke against the measure "The Immigrant laborer lifts the na tive akil lea laborer on his back to higher things and therefore I can not understand why organised labor is against immigration," asid former Representative Cockran, of New York.
