Subsequently several amendments of a liilnor character were attached to the meas ure. ure.Mr. . Allen enlivened the proceedings a few minutes before adjournment by making an attack upon Speaker Heed for preventing the enactment , as the Nebraska senator de clared , of meritorious legislation sent to the house of representatives by the senate. Ho denounced the speaker's actltti In this regard " " and to the gard aa a "disgrace" to congress American people. When a point of order \vas \ made against him for the use of Im proper language concerning the other branch of congress , Mr. Allen said that ho wan stating only the truth , and that ho was re- sptxislblo here or elsewhere , at any time , for his statements. It was expected to conclude the considera tion of the pending bill today , but when an appeal was taken by Mr. Allen from the ruling of the vice president that an amend ment offered by Mr. Thurnton was not In order , the point of order was made by Mr. Allen that a quorum was nut present. A roll call disclosing the absence ot a quorum , the senate adjourned. GENERAL IJOOTII PUAYS. General William Ilooth of London , founder of the Salvatlcu Army , of ficiated na chaplain at the opening today of the senate's session. He Invoked the dlvlno blessing upon the senate and Its members , and bctiought the Great Huler of All to continue his favor to these here gathered for the ruling and regulation of this great and mighty nation , and that all that might hero bo done be to the honor and glory of God. He prayed that his country might move forward In the march of Christianity BO that It might be an example to all other nations of the earth. Mr. and Mra. Hooth-Tuckor , the son-in-law mid daughter of General Uootli , were In the gallery during the prayer. 1'rcvlous to the meeting of the senate the entire party hold a brief reception In the vice president's room. Mr. Kryo ( Mo. ) ropcctcd favorably from the committee on commerce a bill to amend the Icw s relating to navigation. Ho said that PS tfio proposed bill related only to Alaskan waters It was necessary that prompt action should be taken. The bill was passed with out division. Mr. Chandler ( N. II. ) gave notice that he. would tomorrow call up the Cocbett case Im mediately after the morning business. The Indian appropriation bill was then con sidered. Considerable discussion arose over an amendment iiroposud 'by ' the committee pro viding "that hereafter no Indian or tribe of Indians shall lease for mining purposes 1 nds that are not patented to said In dians. " CORPORATION'S HAVE A GRAFT. Mr. Rawllns supported the amendment nnil referred to efforts that are constantly being maJo by private Individuals and cor porations to secure- Indian lands , part'cularly mineral lands by lease from the Indians with the npproval of the secretary of the Irturlor. .Ho , said that when ho came here in 1S93. nu application -was .pending before the secretary of the Interior for approval of a lease of 386,000 acres of land In the "Ur.compahgre reservation , containing valu able depos.ts of gllsonlte. The le-iso toad ibepn d.talned ( by an Individual through , the connivance of the Indian agent , and at once turnoJ ever to the American Asphalt com pany. The agents and attorneys of this cor- 1 iioratlou. iMr. Rawllns said , had came to Washington , and representing that they con trolled senators and representatives , and had griMt Influence In high political circles , were trying to force the approval ot thtxr lease. .Ultimately , he said , a lease covering about GOO acres was approved. Xci.v , ho declared , these same persons were "endeavoring to defeat the committee amend ment to prevent the Indians from leasing ' Thdr lands. Ho believed In opening the niln- Vral lands by the government , Ihn leasing ot them to Individuals or companies , and the application of the proceeds for the benefit of the Indians. With , thlfl argument Mr. Allen took lssui > . He maintained that the Indiana had a higher and better right to the land than the more permission to roam ovcc It. hunting and fish ing and feedliig their ponies. Ho held that the Indians had a right to mine for the mineral suppc-scd or known to be In the bnd or cut the timber growing thereon , and If the Individual Indians or the Indian tribe Old not desice to , mine the land , they had the .right to lease privileges to such poraom as they pleased under reasonable restriction. THEY HAVE AN ADVANTAGE. Mr. Allen raid he did not dcwiro to 1m- 'pugn ' anybody's motives , but ho could readily conceive that these who resided near these valuable gUsanltc lands , being thor oughly familial wltti the location of the .mineral deposits , might-bo anxious to open these lands to location by white people , as wuch opening would afford them Eti Immense Advantage over the people from other parts , who were unfamiliar with the matter. The committee amendment was agrees ! to. At the conclusion of the reading ot the .bill It was thrown open to amendment. Mr. Kyle proposed an , amendment that all or any part of the sum of $108.335 now In the treasury to the credit of ttio Sioux Iti- iillans of the Orcw Creek Indian reservation in South Dakota may bo used for the pur- oliaso of such cattle and agricultural linple- 'mcnts as will promote their welfare. The 'nmemlmc'iit was agreed to. Mr. Wilson ( Wash. ) presented and secured the adoption of at * amendment appropriating ? 30OQO for school buildings atwl repairs co the Puyallup reservation In Washington. .In vlow of this amendment Mr. Allison prcrented and had adopted a commltteo umcndment reducing the sum appropriated liy the bill for the construction , purchase , le-asu and repair ot school ibulldlnga from J200.000 to $170,000. Mr. Wilson aUo secured an amendment opening the south half of the Convlllo Indian loacrvatlon In Washington to mineral opera tion. tion.Mr , Allen presented nn amendment re storing the annuities of the Santee Sioux Indiana , Mr. Allison made a point of order ngalnot the amendment. Ho said It would Involve the payment of at least $3,000.000 , and. per- liana double that amount. Mr. Allen raid ho < lld not want so Impor tant an amendment as that "whistled down the wind" 'by a point ot order. Ho Bald ho did not want to bo "picked up and emitted out like a candle , " ibut desired an oppor tunity to discuss It. Mr. Allison said ho was convinced that , there wad not the shadow of right In thtA proposed amendment. Ho Insisted on this point of order , but Mr. Allen withdrew the amendment. An amoudmont was adopted appropriating $23,000 for the construction and equipment of an Indian Industrial achool on the Port Krc-sh military reservation In Montana on a Bl'n lint exceeding 1,000 acres , Vi. Jones ( Ark. ) offered an amendment to the bill of the agreements between the United States commissioners to negotiate with the five civilized tribes , -and the com- m'sslonorg on the part of the Scmlnole na tion , and It was agreed to , ALLEN CRITICIZES REED. In the course of the discussion ot an amendment offered < by Mr , Thurston , against which a point of order was nude by Mr. Allison , Mr , Allen made a sharp attack upon the speaker of the houio of representatives. Ho declared tliat It was Imposalblo to secure the passage through the house of many incrltorlous measures , because 0110 man stood at the entrance ot tbo caverns Into which proposed legislation was dumped ana would permit nothing to bo done Ot which ho did not approve. Ho nald that "In th other cml of the capital this one man stand for .123 , and hU bold , unwarranted , undlg Mined action was a disgrace to the congrcs and to the American people. " Mr. Fryo said thd senator ( Allen ) was him self out of order , -while speaking to a poln of order. Mr. Allen eald he had no desire to vlolat the rules and did not think he had violate- - them , as he hail not referreJ to any man b ; name , nor any particular end of the cap lt.il. lt.il.This This was received with sarcastic laughte by other senators , and even < Mr , Allci smiled. Further along In his remarks Mr. Allei reverted to the power exercised by thi speaker ot the house , declaring that in vlcv of the Impossibility of necurlng consldera tlon of meritorious legislation the trutl ought to bo known to all the people In thi country. If the truth hurt or It It brok ( any rules ho was not responsible. "I wani It understood , " said Mr. Allen , "that I hole myself responsible at any time and In nnj place for such statements aa I may make 01 * liav'e made on this subject. " Mr , Allison's point ot order was sustained by the vice president. Mr , Allen took an appeal to the senate from the vlco president's ruling. Mr. Hoai moved to lay the appeal on the table. Mr , Allen made the point of no quorum and roll call disclosed tlio presence ot but thirty- n Inn senators not a quorum. The senate , on motion ot Mr. Allison , at C:15 : p. in. adjourned , IIOUSH SHOWS SOME HAT1 TIMIMSIt DritiocrnlN 'llenort in KIllliiiolerliiK t Ohtnln Their Point. WASHINGTON , Vcb. 10. The house was In n very bad temper today end the whole setulon was consumed In filibustering against two bills ot mlnors Importance , one to Issue a duplicate check end the other to make Hocklatul , Me. , a subport of entry. Neither got further than the engrossment and third reading. The trouble arose over the en forcement of the rule aialnst the discussion of Irrelevant subjects when Mr. Handy ( dem. , Del. ) attempted to reply on the flooi during the consideration of these bills to a letter recently written by Thomas V. Bay ard In denunciation of the free silver de mocracy. Roll call followed roll call all day kcig , and partisan spirit reached a hlgli pitch. Klnally , when It bccamo evident that no progress could bo made with the bills presented , an adjournment was taken until Monday. Mr. Walker ( rep. , Va. ) , In the house , to day presented the report of the committee on elections No. 3 on the contested election case of Thorp against Epea from the Fourth district of Virginia. The majority report was signed by all the republican members of the committee and was In favor of ceat- kig the contestant , Mr , Thorp. Mr. Holley , the democratic lender , got time from Mr. Perkins ( rep. , la. ) during the con sideration of a bill to authorize a duplicate of the check Isoued by Charles E. Medics- ncy , an Indian agent , In favor ot C. J. Hoi- man & Brother for $2,819 , and yielded thirty minutes of It to Mr. Handy ( dem. . Del. ) Some question was raised as to the right of Mr. Dalley to yield time , and considerable friction developed. Mr. Tawney ( rep. , Minn. ) Intimated In an Undertone that Mr. Bailey had secured tlmo under falce pretenses. "Of course the gentleman does not mean that , " paid Mr. Bailey , "but It he does I de nounce It as Infamously false. " The situation immediately became strained and when Mr. Handy launched his remarks , which proved to bo a criticism ot Hon. Thomas P. Bayard's recent utterances on the money question , objection waa made that his remarks were irrelevant. Party feeling became strained by the incident , and the democrats retaliated 'by ' contesting the passage - sago of the bill. The 'previous question was ordered , 1 > ut another roll call was forced on an Inslg1- nlflcant Incident. On this vote most of the democrats , under lead of Mr. Bailey , de clined to ypte , but the speaker noted enough members present to make up a quorum and the amendment was adopted. On the next vote on the engrossment and third reading of the 1)111 the speaker could only count /140 / present and a call of the house was ordered. A quorum appeared and 'the bill was or dered to be engrossed. Mr. Bailey then formally demanded the reading of the engrbsscd iblll. As this could not. of course , be done , the 1)111 was laid aside. The speaker then .began a call for the committees for the presentation of 'bills. ' This was the first tlmo this order of busl- no33 has been entered upon at this session. On the first bill presented Mr. Bailey again got the floor and again yielded to Mr. Handy. Ho had only uttered a few sen tences , stating that ho Intended to reply to Mr. Bayard , when Mr. Dalzell called him to order. Mr. Bailey protested vehemently that there wns no way of determining whether Jlr. Handy was In order or not. Mr. Dalzell replied that the statement was a. mere evasion. Mr. Williams ( dem. , Miss. ) and several others were drawn Into the controversy. Suddenly the speaker straightened up In his chair and addressing Mr. Bailey , said : "That tlio gentleman from Delaware Is out ot order can certainly not be disputed by gentlemen who are looking each other In the face. " Continuing the speaker said that while It had been the custom to allow the widest latitude In debate In the committee of the whole that had not been the practice In the house. There the debate was confined to the subject under consideration and he thought members on both sides must admit that It would not bo suitable to fasten upon them a system by which all manner of ques tions could bo discussed nt any time. It was wise , ho said , to conform to the princi ples that governed every parliamentary body. Mr. Bailey. In reply , maintained that cus tom was an binding as the rule , and ho con tended that It had always been the practice to give gentlemen latltiftle. Ho fcad never knowci , be said , a case where a gentleman was called to order , unless ho was attacking some ono or Indulging in personalities. Ho called attention that last week for two hours during the consideration of a pension bill In the house n debate on Pacific railroads had fitmo on. "Yet today , " lie said , "the rule was Invoked on this side. When a gentle man on this side desires to reply to an at tack on. him. and all those associated with him. ho Is silenced. I appeal to gentleman on the older side to reflect how far the prac tice they contend for can no. " The speaker said ho had no desire to enforce - force the rules rigorously , except when they wore Invoked. If tbo rule had not been en forced co other occasions , It was the mis fortune of those other occasions. There was no _ longer any pretence that Mr. Handy In tended to discuss the pending bill. It becoming evident that the democrats Intended to continue the filibuster , and as the house had no regular business to pro ceed with , Mr , Dlnglcy nt this Juncture moved an adjournment until Monday. 'Mr. Richardson ( dem , , Tcnn. ) , who , with his fellow democrats , desired to have a ses sion tomorrow for the consideration of pri vate bills , contested this motion with a plain motion to adjourn. The speaker ruled that Mr , Dlngloy's mo tion took precedence. The motion was carried , 128 to 110. Mr. Henderson ( rep. , la. ) , chairman of the Judiciary committee , asked unanimous con sent for the consideration of the bankruptcy bill on Wednesday , Thursday and Saturday ot next week , with provision for a vote at 4 o'clock on the following Monday. There was no objection , and the order being en tered at 4:25 : p. m , the house adjourned until Monday.

SURPRISES WAR DEPARTMENT OFFICER ! of Kacnrt of Troop * Ilm llocii AMXCIIO < I To ! > > ' Cnnnillnu , OIUelnlN nnd llrltlMli Jlliiiftter. WASHINGTON , Feb. 10. In view of thi apparentdisposition , ot the Canadian author Itles to prevent the United States troop : from accompanying the relief expcditloi Into the gold country , a brief review of thi correspondence that has so far taken placi between the two governments may bo It order. The negotiations proper started Deccmbei 30 last between Acting Secretary Mclklcjoht ot the War department and Mr. Sltton , tula Ister of the Interior for Canada , then It Washington. The official reports show thai a complcto agreement , as it was understood at the tlmo , was reached as to the course to bo followed by the expedition , and iti escort. Soon after Mr. Slfton's return tc Ottawa a question arose os to the free ad mission ot supplies to bo taken In by the government expedition In case they were i' bo sold nt cost , which was disposed of by c prompt telegram from Mr. Slfton In answoi to Mr. Melklcjohn , saying that It was In tended to charge no duty upon provision ! to bo sent In. Mr. Slfton also reminded Mr Melklejohn of the stipulation between then that no unofficial or unauthorized porsonf should accompany the expedition. To facili tate free entry ho asked for a certified list of the persons and an Inventory ot the out fit of the expedition. In confirmation of this came a note from Sir Julian Pauncefote , the British ambassador , confirming the state ment as to free entry of goods and having this Important paragraph as bearing on the present controveisy : "Also that conyovt may be accompanied by such reasonable es corts as the United States government may deslro to provide for them and each cottvoy shall bo likewise accompanied by a Canad ian officer , the expense of such Canadian officer being borne by the Dominion govern- mcnt. " COMDS AS A SURPRISE. Supposing that this understanding was perfect , It came as a surprise to the Wai department when Mr. Sltton , on January 27 wrote that he took It for granted that the Ifty-flvo enlisted men who were to accom- lany the expedition were not Intended to ga Beyond the boundary line , which , ho says , 'Is provisionally at the summit of the moun- : alns about the middle of the pass. " Mr. Slfton added that the arrangement Into which he had entered was that he shouli ] furnish escort for the American expedition and ho had accordingly sent forward the men for the purpose. In reply , under date of January 31 , Mr. Melklejohn said that his understanding was that the entire escort designated by our government should ac company the expedition to Its destination as necessary to render assistance In over coming anticipated difficulties , subject to Canadian law and to be accompanied by a Canadian officer. Enlisted men Instead of civilians wcro selected as more available md amenable to discipline and costing less. The escort Is not regarded as a military ex pedition , but on Omadlan soil Its service vlll be lot a civil nature. < Mr. Jlclklejohn hereupon reminded Mr. lalfton ot the agree ment with Sir Julian as to the "reasonable escort" 'to be permitted. Ho points to the condition that would confront the expedition t it arrives upon the Canadian "border " with supplies and , had to go beyond to meet miigry and. desperate people without a single arm for the protection of the expedition , its supplies or equipments. So far no further communication haa been , Md with th'n Canadian government on this subject The outo to be , followed iby -expedition Is herefore uncertain. YOtr.VG WIDOWS TOGKT PENSIONS.

The corridors of the Southern hole ! where the national assembly of thi League ot American Wheelmen Is hold Ing Us session , present the aspests o a national political convention. The nu nierous state delegations have been holding meetings and caucusing for their respective candidates ever since their arrival. While Isaac Potter , the national president ot the League of American Wheelmen , Is In UK load for re-election to his present position friends of his only opponent , George D GldoDn of Pennsylvania , ex-chairman of the racing "board " , say their favorite may sur prise him with his strength when the tlnu for balloting begins. President Potter's sup porters assert ho will go Into the convention with moro than enough votes to elect him. The action of the Pennsylvania delegation last night precludes the possibility of sup port trom that division for Gideon. It Is asverted that lie will have ot least. 100 votea to 'begin with. Thcso votes will probably como from the Now England states , Massa chusetts especially , Ohio and from some southern and western divisions. Just before the assembly convened the .Illinois delegation , which , as one of the del egates expressed It , was between the devil and tbo deep sea , held a caucus to decide which candidate to support. The Illinois delegation unanimously decided to cast Its fourteen votes for Gideon and stand by him throughout.

PRESIDENT POTTER'S KEPORT. The report of President Isaac B. Potterr primarily dwelt at length upon the progress it the good roads movement in the league. Ho then called attention to the fact that ten states ; .have passed laws requiring bicycles to 'Te carried as baggftigc without exra eharge , and bills are now pending In the legislatures of Kentucky. Vlrlglnla and Maryland for the same purpose. This policy on the Long Island railroad alone Increased the traffic from 40,000 cycling passengers In 1890 to 100,500 In 1SD7. ifo recommended that the publishing of an executive bulletin of news and notes relating to the general work of : heleagxio and C'ts separate divisions bo con tinued. Ho also recommended the continu ance of the loan fund which served on ex cellent purpose within the last year. During the past year 54,793 new menibers lave joined the league and. 48,017 of the old members have renewed. But , as In former years , the percentage of renewals Is toy no : ndans satisfactory. In closing his report , President Potter dwelt briefly on the dis satisfaction that nvas expressed In southern California owing to the fa'lluro ' of the passage - sago of an amendment at the last assembly : o sanction Sunday racing. Ho maintained that the deliberate judgment of the national assembly must at nil times prevail. SECRETARY BAt-ISETT'S RiBPORT. Secretary Abbot B > issett , In his report said the year 1897 had seen the membership grow from 72,000 to 102,000 , and the finances iai shown a very healthy condition. The membership roll shows a gain of 42 per cent. The largest "percentage " shown In the past was 87 per cent. In 1S70. Tbo grgjs tlncomo 'or 1S97 > was $165,012 , an Increase ot $41- 54C over 1S9C. Among the several divisions during 1897 was distributed $91.504 , Sub scriptions to the Bulletin amounted tn $25- 247 , and to Its publishers was paid $39,239 , , naklng the 'Bulletin ' cost the Uaguo $13,992. The number of T > aid subscriptions received was 100,990. League club fees amounted to :50S. : As Instructed at the last assembly , the vork of re-nurribertng tlio membership cards ias 'been ' begun , 'but It Is expected at least two'years will be consumed In perfecting the alphabetical Index. The report of the auditing committee , com- > osed ot J. Fred Adams , John J. Van Hort and George L. McCacthy , showed that the oaguo had In its treasury over $15,000. The irlnclpal heavy receipts for the past year were : Applications , $95.887 ; renewals , $36- 012 ; subscriptions , $25,247. The heavy ex penditures were : Distributions among dl- Islons , $91,504 ; Bulletin account , $39,239. The report of Albert Mott , chairman of tbo racing board , showed that during the year the receipts by the racing board amounted o $9,42C , the expenditures $7,691 , leaving n manco ! on hand of $1S32. During the year ! ,012 race meets were hold , where 17.31G raced lad been given , participated in by 9,000 racing men , who have won and received racing and pacemaklng prizes to the value of $1,654,020. Ono new feature that has Improved bi cycle racingtn the past season Is the en- runco Into It ot capitalists and business men. They are In It for an Investment and to get proper returns , consequently heir meets are conducted In a business- Iko manner and with system. The racing anctlon privilege is not only necessary , but t is n wise measure in fostering this class of recreation and entertainment for the public. The control by the League of American Wheelmen , without direct pe cuniary profit , invites public confidence to in extent that could not be accomplished n any other munnci. Mr. Mott called attention to tbo manner of ietcrmlnlng the professional national Cham- ) lon and asserted It Is at fault. "For bvlous reasons , " ho continued , "the national amateur championships should bo deter mined entirely at tbo national meet and there Mould bo but ono champion , " In the report of Otto Dorner , chairman ot he committee on Improvement of the high- vays , ho stated a vast amount of personal ffort had been expended upon the good roads vork ! a moat of the states , and many ac- Ivo minds had devoted themselves entbu- lastlcally and persistently to the cause. Apart from the continuous general agitation going on all over the country , the good oads movement has made considerable peclfic progress In a number of states. The report of the committee on tranapor- atlra stated that with the exception of onnsylvanla- Maryland , Delaware , Vlr- Inla , West Virginia , Indiana , southern Illnols and Florida , tbo railroads carry vhccls by force of law , while these otatca re Included by voluntary concession. The ey to the eastern situation Is now In the into of Indlmm.

The report ot the metriborshlp commltteo submitted by Chairman George L. Cook showed that out of 100,000 applicants and members , Just forty-oinc had complaints or objectlccis ontcrrd against them tor cnusca other than tnrllglblllty , and In twenty ot thMo Instances , the objections wcro over ruled as trivial or unfounded , The report ot the commltteo on rights and privileges , submitted by Chairman Walter S. Jenkins , comprised the citation ot numerous Instances where that committed had been applied to from all over the * coun try for opinions concerning the rights and privileges of riders , from complaints re lating to collisions to constitutional quw tlcxis. In all caara answers wcro given that would tenil to produce harmony where seem ing discord threatened. The next business before the anscmbly was the election of officers nnd nominations for president wore declared In order.

Another list of professionals , made public last night , who desired reinstatement to the amateur class , was passed up to the as sembly without the recommendation ot the lacing board and was promptly laid on the table by a unanimous vote. The consideration ot amendments to the constitution and by-laws of the Icaguo was then begum. The first was an amendment to article 111 of ( section 1 , of the constitution. .Mr. Cook of Rhode Island and Mr. Lawson - son of Kentucky moved to strike out the word "amateur. " Tuls would have the effect ot admitting to membership In the league member. } In the professional classes , which had hitherto been entirely excluded. EVERYBODY TALKS. There ensued a moat Interesting drbate. In which It seemed every delegate present par ticipated , and advanced his views for and against the matter. At times the debate became acrimonious. Every opportunity was given the delegates to bo heard , before the previous question was presented. As the result of the ballot the amendment failed of adoption , ifi2 to 143. An 325 votes In all wore cast , 217 waa the number re quired to carry It , An aiw'.ysla of tdo vote showed that most of the opposition ( o the admission of "pros" to membership came from the cast , Now York and New Jersey voting solidly against the adoption or the amendment , thus Insuring Its defeat. It was notable that Massachusetts and Rhode Island voted solidly for the amendment. Asldo from these two states and nineteen votes from Pennsylvania , the main support of the amendment came from the divisions south and west of the Allegheny mountains. Tbo second amendment proposed to article III , section 1 , of the constitution , failed to be oven considered , for It was discovered that it had not been published as required. A mo- tlon to cast It asldo was adopted. The next amendment was adopted , after some debito , nd n few changes had been made In the wording. In brief It provided that the board of officers of any state di vision shall have the power to establish a Junior membership of the League of Ameri can Wheelrren , to bo subject to the control and management ot the board of officers of ItiB state division In which the junior mem ber resides , Such junior membership shall consists or persons between the ages of 12 and IS years , who must be a member of the family or a ward of a regular member of the Lcugue of American Wheelmen In good standing at the time of the presentation ot the application for membership aa a junior member ot the league.
