Washington, May 4.?The outlined
programme for the Senate procedure
this week was shattered early In the
day's session by two unexpected mo?
tions. When the Intended action to
consider the river and harbor hill was
attempted, It was antagonized by a mo?
tion to consider the Dupont election
oase. Mr. Mitchell, with considerable
display ot feeling sought to prevent this,
but, by an aye and nay vote, resulting
33 to 31, the Senate decided to take up
the Dupont oase. Later an agreement
was effeoted to postpone the matter un?
til the river and harbor bill was passed;
the final vote in the election case to be
taken two days after consideration was
At 2 o'clock Mr. Peffer occasioned
another flurry. At that time the bond
resolution was laid before the Senate as
the unfinished business. It was sup?

Mr. Hill declared that this "political
financial-partisan" resolution was en?
titled to no privilege.
Mr. Shorman said he thought the bond
resolution should be acted on promptly.
Mr. Frye, in charge of the river and
harbor bill, finally moved to proceed
with that bili. Tbe effect of the motion
if adopted would have been to displace
the bond resolution and practically de?
feat it. The motion waa defeated 28
When the vote was announoed Mr.
Frye remarked that he was Indifferent
to the result,but It should be understood
that this action was a rerloua blow to
the river and harbor bill.
Mr. Hill then secured the floor taking
up the thread of hit speech opposing the
bond resolution begun many days ago.
Mr. Hill referred to the "Massachu?
setts and Maryland combination" in
speaking of the votes of Mr. Lodge and
Gorman just given favor of the bond
resolution. The Senator spoke of Mr.
Pfeffer's recent course In striking out
ot the resolutions the offensive Insinua?

out any objectionable features in the
resolution, adding that he would like to

not open to offensive criticism.
Mr. Hill responded that this debate
had forood tbe author of tbe resolution
to strike out tbe offensive statements.
"I would bave the Senate treat John

old oase of hard luck that lost us so
many games last year seemed to strike
the boys in yesterday's exhibition.

would invariably knook an easy one to
the infield and a double play was the
Then again the Mountaineers did not
seem to be able to hit the ball until
after two men were out. Whltehlll

on a fumble by Magee, and scoring on a
hit by T?te. The latter also scored on
a wild throw by Rollins to third.
The locals were blanked then until
tho fourth, Wrigley made a two-base
hit and scored on a ball knooked to
Hellman, who let it pass him. This
ended the run getting for the locals.
The Grangers were blanked in the
first inning, but in the second Roiman
hit safely and crossed the rubber on the
three bagger made by Hargrove.
The visitors succeeded In Bcorlng ono
run in the fourth, one in the sixth and
one in tho seventh inning, and in the
eighth three men ohased over tho rub?

the game easily. The score;_
