NOT VERY WELL PLEASED. The Southern Pacific Makes Another Request for a Conference. Chicago. April 29. — Another request ■was received from the Southern Pacific yes terday for a conference of the interested lines upon the emigrant question. All things are ripe for such a conference if any assurance could be obtained that the Union Pacific weald be a partner to it, or would be willing to observe the results of the meeting as binding upon it. There is no question bat that the South ern Pacific is growing v«ry restless under the present condition of affairs, and it will bring all the pressure it can bear upon the Union Pacific. It has tried its hand on the Hues of the Western Passenger Asso ciation and has found them immovable. The only thine that c*n be made to give way is the Union Pacific, for the other lines say they will not budge an inch. They have already given up to tbe Union Pacific all they propose to surrender. General Passenger Agent Goodman made the request to-day for a conference, and, although no formal ans.ver has as yet been tendered to him there is much proba bility that the conference will be held. The Western Passenger Association lines were for a time disposed to hold their regular May meeting at Hot Springs, Ark., but they have given up that idea. Kates nro in too shaky a condition at present to admit of the general passenger agents going so far from Chicago. Tue meeting will therefore be held, as usual, in Chi cago. HAD NO QUORUM. Absence of Members Compels the House to Adjourn. Washington*, April 29 — Some routine business was transacted at the opening of the House yest°riay.

The House then went into committee of tbe whole and took up the army appropria tion bill, which carries $23,568,264, $477, --355 less than the appropriations of the cur rent fiscal year. During the debate on tbe bill tbe roll was called u?«der tbe rule, and no quorum being developed, the absentees were re, ported to the House, and then at 3:55 o'clock the House adjourned.

The New York Senator Not Advised of Its Progress. PLANNING FOR AN ADVANTAGE. Supporters of the Tariff Bill Fear They Lack Votes Enough to Put It on Its Passage. Washington, April 29.— The course which the tariff debate may take in tbe Senate this week will depend entirely upon developments from day to day. Tbe agreement for the limitation of debate on the tariff to certain hours each day has expired, and the Republicans have shown no deposition to renew it. Tbe Demo- crats have been unsuccessful In the ad vance of the hour for tbe meeting from 11 o'clock to 12, but they only gel the bill up each day after tbe disuosal of the routine morning business by an aye and i ay vote, and are making progress by el bowing themselves along. They have not yet decided whether they will attempt to extend tbe debate until a later date. Their programme in this respect will de pend upon the progress that may be madp with the compromise now on hand. The feeling is general on the Democratic side that if they get a bill which commands the support of the entire Democratic side of the chamber the Republican antagonism will weaken; that the opposition will be content to make earnest protest, but with out any effort to prolong tne final vote be yond the time necessary to discuss the various schedules in a business-like man ner and that night sessions may not be resorted to. Senator Harris said to-day that he thought if the Pwepublicans only became convinced that there was no prospect of opposition to the bill among the Demo crats tney woilld yield gracefully to the iu evitable and allow the bill to pass after expressing their reasuns for their antag onism. "If we succed in reaching ihat state," he said, "and Republican Senators take this view of the matter and conduct them selves accordingly, it win not be the policy of the Democratic management of the bill to impose acy unusual hardships on Sen ators." He declined to say what course would be adopted in case the developments should not be as satisfactory as he hopes, because he would in that event have to consult with other members of the Demo cratic steering committee as to the course to be pursued; but it is known from pre vious utterances of his that his policy in case the opposition should continue ob durate, whether the Democrats perfect their agreement or not, would be to extend the hours of the dally sessions, compel the Republicans to consume all the time de voted to speeches and force the bill along as rapidly as possible in the face of the ppusition. It is even possible that if the Republicans do not indicate a willingness to confine themselves to what is called legit imate discussion, night sessions may be very suddenly precipitated, as the Demo cratic leaders teel the early disposal of the bill to be of the utmost importance. The Republicans have not yet eiven up the hope of a schism in Democratic ranks, and they will announce no policy different from that which they have been pursuing until it is made manifest that all the Democratic Senators have united upon a Dill. If such unison Is not shown they will continue the present tactics, with probably more frequent roll calls and a more decided protest against longer hours than have yet been adopted. They have not yet decided upon a course in case of a Democratic agreement, but there are some indications that If one Is reached the op position will not be so stubborn, as it is realized that it would in that event be futile in the end. They are counting on the absence ot Senator Hill at this time and tbe fact that he could not have been fully advised of the compromise under consider ation. They evidently think it probable that it would not meet his expectations, and if it should not they hope for further dissatisfaction In the party. There are few set speeches in prospect for this week. Senator Aldrich will prob ably speak during the week, and Senators Squire and Kyle may also ask for time to deliver speeches. The continuation of the speech of Senators Quay and Dolpb may also be counted upon as occasion may re- require. Toe House will continue work ou the appropriation bills this week. The Re publicans developed a restrictive policy during the consideration of the diplomatic and consular bill, which was computed last Thursday, consuming an entire week by means of unimportant amend ments to unimportant item 9. The Demo crats fear thai) this policy is to be con tinued In furtherance of a well prepaied programme to delay the passage of tbe regular appropriation bill. Should it be developed during the week that such is tbe fact a special order may be necessary to expedite matters. 1 After the completion of tbe army bill, the consideration of which was begun yes terday, it is probable Mr. Dockery will be allowed to bring forward bis bill reported from the Joint Committee on Expenditures In tbe departments to reorganize the sys tem of accounting in the Treasury De partment, which is designed to reduce expenditures in the department $180,000. It is necessary that the bill sbould be disposed uf before the legislative, execu tive and judical appropriation bill, now in process of completion by the Appropria tion Committee, is framed, as t :e changes it makes in the existing law must be incor porated in that Dili, and as soon as it is out of the way the river and harbor bill is to be called up. In case the Republicans per sist in an obstructive programme an at tempt will be make to pass it a week from to-morrow under suspension of the rules. The managers of the House are very much in earnest in their determination not to permit any resolutions bearing on the Coxey movement to gel into tbe arena of debate. They do not believe this subject should be agitated. It is intended that the subject cannot be, by any possibility or construction, considered privileged, and any request tor unanimous consent for consideration will be promptly obj»cted to. The only way in which the subject can be discussed in the House is under debate, on ! one of the pending appropriation bills, and such discussion can only eventuate in talk. Mutual Concessions Made.

JIM EXPLAINS IT. He Mad Not Intended to Fight Jack- son Until Autumn. Loxdox, April 30. — The Sportsman pub lishes an interview with Corbett in regard to his fight with Jackson, and deposit re cently made by Davies. He says: "The Parson is simply bluffing. After the fight at Jacksonville, Davies, Brady and myself had a quiet talk, and it was understood that the fight with Jackson would not occur until autumn. I would not have come to England and mapped out a big programme if I had to fight a mnn In June, and if Jackson believes all Davies says, why is he not training instead of playing? Davies is simply bragging for advertisement. If Davies will make it worth my while to close my engagements by making a small bet 1 will cut short my tour and fight Jackson when and where he likes."

In some respects the strike situation is un changed from last night, although there have been some interesting developments. The proposition of the commercial bodies of the two cities for a submission to an arbitration board of five disinterested per sons has been generally discussed, being the chief topic at the union mens' mass meeting at Labor Hall this afternoon. Mayor Eustis of Minneapolis and Labor Commissioner Powell were present and addressed iho men, urging them to accept the proposition for arbitration. The sug gestion was fairly hooted down. At the same hour, in another part of the city, President Hill was telling some business men he wou'd agree to any fair proposi tion for arbitration ou the condition that the men resume work at once. President Hill said he could not tight and arbitrate at the same time, and made this one condi tion of immediate resumption of work in case arbitration was agreed upon. President Debs privately said he was in favor of the scheme proposed by the com mercial bodies, but when lie addressed the Labor Hall mass-meeting be spoke as a mouthpiece of a committee whose major ity is against him and very rßdical, and he oaid that the men Had demanded justice and that arbitration wns therefore out of the question. After this announcement and the formal rejection of the arbitration by the masi-meeting Mr. Debs went to his hotel with other labor leaders for the pur pose of seeing if it was not possible tocome to an agreement that would be acceptable to both the men and the company. So far as any official action of tne union is con cerned the proposition tor arbitration has been rejected, and the strikers are in the same position as formerly demanding their last year's pay and admitting no possibiU uv of a compromise.

D., April 29. — The local members of the American Railway Union have a scheme on foot which they think will cause the Great Northern consider able expense and may result In the com pany having to pay the salaries of the Deputy Marshals employed ostensibly to protect the mails, but In reality, they say, to enable the Great Northern passenger trains to run. The men claim that the company has sent out trains having neither mails nor mail agents aboard, although mailcars were attached to each end of the traiu and they were manned by United States Deputy Marshals, thus fraudulently securing the service of the Deputy Marshals to enable them to run a train, under the guise of securing the pro tection for the United Stales mails. They will lay the matter before Coogress at once.

The congregation or the Star of the Sea Churcb on Eightn and Point Lobos avenues, Richmond, was surprised when at the morning mass yesterday a choir of South Sea Islanders participated in the services. Since the Midwinter Fair opened this congre gation has on more than oue occasion received new impressions on the universally of the r, Jl c cliurc " and Its great variety of faith ful adherents. About a month ago a Syiian Bishop officiated before ttiem a mass according to the Synau rite, and different iv many details from that of the Latin church. Then the pic turesquely attired denizens ot Cairo street, who had been regarded a* followers or Mo hammed, showed themselves to be devout Cai ho lies, attached to the same devotions and hold ing the same b lief. But yesterday the voices never before heard In a Catholic Cbuich choir in Sau FrancHco— deep, fullchested notes harmoniously blended and softened wl'ii a mellow richness peculiar to the Inhabitants of the Pacific isl ands—created an Impression altogether new and certainly very agreeable. The South Sea Island natives were trained Iv harmony and their pronunciation of the Latin was refreshing because It was not faulty. About thirty of them occupied tbe choir gal lery. They attentied mass with reverence, som - of them leading from latjre prayerbooks, and some telling their beads devoutly. The men weie all brave, stilwart fellows, with good open faces, inetr blic< hatr was bleached with lime, which Is used in their home as a protection against the tropical sun. In dies* they were all alike, each having a warm blue woolen shirt, tray tweed suit, cap and comfortable shoes, the last however, being anything but comfortable to their Ideas. Half a dozen women dressed in short skirts and bodices of co:ton stuff aiul flannel shawl«, also attended, occasionally blending their voices with the war riors. All were familiar with the mass In Latin and -antr without a hitch, that would Indicate a lack of knowledge. The music appioached a simple chaut, all houah at times it wax tai-en from celebiated masses. Every word wa» sung InLitin. Afier the consecration a hymu was sung In the natives' language as translated by Fiench priests. It wa* a simple melody, ren dered much as Hawaiian* sing, with a pleasing effect. After mass Father Coyle returned to the altar and gave the rosaiy in Latin, and the natives i esuonded iv that tongue to the edification of all present. These visitors are natives of tbe Wallls and Kortuna Islands In the South Pacific uudei a French protectorate. They are under the spir itual care of Father Joseph, S. J., and Father Oilveo, both Fienca priests, whose mission is confined to those Islands. The natives are at present livinu at the Midwinter Fair. Dead on the Desert. San Diego, AdiN 29 —a.
