A fight over the division of the build ing appropriation for the atate university occupied a large part of tha afternoon aesslon. In the forenoon the senate com mittee of tha whole added to the general appropriation bill 360,000 for tha comple tion of buildings at the state farm, and It was the understanding of a number of the senator that the 1100,000 taken out of the 1-mlll levy would bo allowed to be used for an engineering building on th campus. The standing committee had recommended that thl money be ex pended on the farm," and when H. R. 71, appropriating the 1-mlll levy, came up, McKesson of Lancaster moved that the recommendation of the oommlttee be not concurred In, but that the regenta be al lowed to expend the money If they eavr fit for an engineering building. Ashton, Epperson, Aldrlch, Latta and Patrick mad the principal arguments against the . motion, while McKesson, Sackett and King fought for It. It wa asserted by those favoring the approprlar tlon for the engineering building that thla department of the university Is more crowded than any other part and that the money wa needod there worse than at th farm. The opponents of the mo tion contended the money would be of more value to the state at the farm than on the campus. The fight wa a hot on and th motion was loat by a email ma jority. McKesson then sought to strike out other part of the committee amendment to permit a part of tho money to be used for an engineering building, but thl wa also voted down. The bill wa then recom monded to pass. Tho appropriation aa It now etands give the farm 1160.000 for build ings and tha university proper nothing. Of the money tlOC.OOO com from the 1-mlll levy and 360,000 from the general fund.

Harrlman'a railroad transactions was begun before the Inter state Commerce commission today. Tha caae commenced at 10 o'clock and when the commission adjourned for the day at 4:30 Mr.. HarrJman'a attorneys had not con cluded their presentation In his behalf. The first of the series of addresne waa mad by Attorney Paul D. Cravath, Who represented not only Mr. Harrlman, but also Kuhn. Loeb r Co., and he wa fol lowed by Judge R. 8. Lovett and John O. Millburn. Mr. Cravath dealt especially with the Chicago Alton recapitalisation, while Mr. Lovett devoted moat of hi at tention to the attack upon the consolida tion of the Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific roads, whloh waa brought about largely through Mr. Harrlman' Instru mentality. Mr. Millburn had not concluded when the commission adjourned, but so far aa he went he dealt entirely with the union of the two Pacific railroads. Mr. Cravath contended that the Chicago Alton transaction had been misunder stood' by both th commission and th pub lic and he declared the proceeding fol lowed waa not unusual in financial trans actions. Mr. Lovett also gave aome atten tion to the Chicago A Alton affair. Insist ing, that the public had suffered no loss on account of th method of th recapi talisation. With reference to th Southern and Union Paclflo roads he declared they were not competing lines, but argued that even If they were the transaction had not been illegal, because the Southern Paclflo had been purchased outright by the Union Pacific, which was not in contravention of the constitution. Mr. MUlbdrn eald the general application of the anti-trust law to the railroad of the 'country, as it was proposed to apply It In th Southern Paolfle-Unlon Paclflo deal,' would put every system upon the de fensive and that most of them would have greater difficulty than would the Union Pacific system In meeting the attacks. WASHINGTON.
