WASHINGTON, May 13.-The house to- ranch of Oeorg McMillan. All the mem- day was again in the throes of a tariff discussion, the entire day being spent in the consideration of the Philippine tariff bill. It encountered no serious opposition, however, although Messrs. Harrison (N. Y.) and Underwood (Ala.) criticised it gen erally. After the reading of the bill had been concluded further action was deferred until Monday. Speaker Cannon's policy of not appoint ing con.mlttoes was upheld by a substantial majority after Mr. Garrett (Tenn.) had sought to have him directed to name the committee on Insular affairs. By a vote of 74 to IN a resolution by Mr. Garrett of Tennessee, directing the speaker forthwith to appoint a committee on insular affairs to consider the president's Porto Rlcan message, was defeated in the house today. Mr Olmsted of Pennsylvania offered a bill amendatory to the act creating a civil government In Porto Rtco. It provides th&t "If at the terrrlnatlon of any session of the legislature the appropriations neces sary for the support of the government shall not lave been made an amount equal to the sums appropriated in the last appro priation bills for such purposes shall be deemed to be appropriated." The bill also authorized the president to designate one of the executive departments of the nattonsl government to take charge of Porto Rlcan affairs. ' Mr. Clark of Missouri objected to Imme diate consideration on the ground that the president's message had as yet not been referred to committee. A statement by Mr. Olmsted thst ths bill was Identical in terms to the laws pertain Ing to the Philippines and Hawaii and that the matter was one of great urgency did not affect Mr. Carlk, who insisted on his objection. In consequence the bill lies on ths speaker's table, WADDELL EASY TO MANAGE Philadelphia Manacer Teariaea far Pitcher In Divorce Salt. 8T. LOUIS. Mo., May 13. -That Geoije E.
