iVOULD COST HOSEY Senate Committee Changes Will Not Be Made With out Opposition. CONDUCIVE OF EXTRAVAGANCE Similar Changes in the House Increased Expenses 75 Cents Per Capita. WASHINGTON. July 2.—A question, Trhich is engaging no small share of at tention among senators who arj look ing forward to the business of the next •efsion of congress is that concerning Ih© effort whitrh it is^ well tindt rstood Will be mtfcle to nave^the appropriation tails distributed among a number of committees iu the senate as ixj the house. There has not been a congress tante the house iur.de the change from liie system of having one committee handle all the appropriation bills when a similar change has not been agitated in the senate, but the more conserva tive senators have so far succeeded in preventing the movement from gaining formidable headway. The agitation has begun much earlier than usual for the next congress and was in working Shape when the last session adjourned. It is coupled with a general desire —among the iu»w members to secure a more satisfactory representation on the committees generally and includes •mong its promoters a sufficient num ber of senators to cause the conserva tives to feel 110 slight decree o£ appre hension over the possibilities. Older Men Opposed. The older men iu the senate will, as a class, oppose the innovation, and they too have been getting their forces into line. The opposition will be based largely on the ground that the change It made will have a tendency to pro juove extravagance in'expcnditure, and tlif* experience of the house will be pointed to in support of the contention. There are members in both houses who assort that the change made in method in the house has been productive of very marked increases in the annual appro priations and they quote figures to ifaow that this has been the case. The first change there was made in 1880, when the appropriations for the ex penses of the agricultural department were first put in an independent bill, and that measure plaoed in the hands pf the committee on agriculture, and 4be river and harbor appropriation bill fut into the hands of an independent Committee. Previous to that the appro priation bills, save that for the pay Bient of pensions (which is excluded from all calculations) amounted to $2.t9 per capita of the population of the United States. During the next four years during which no further change was made, there was a slight increase, but it was not regarded as of sufficient importauce to excite remark or to afford good ground for opposing the proposition when it came up in the Forty-eighth congress, to take the army, the diplomatic and consular, the Indian, the military academy, the nary and the postoffi^e bills from the com mittee on appropriations, and give them to the various house committees having charge of th- kindred subjects. liicretUM-il 75 L'cuta I'er Capita. The change was accordingly made. The new system was rigorously at tacked at the beginning of the Fifty •econd congress and a calculation, which has been unearthed since the preseut agitation for a change in the seuate was inaugurated, was made by the house experts, showing an increase in the appropriation under the new system of over 75 cents per capita, ex clnsive of pensions. This the opponents of the distribu tion plan claimed, as they do now, was the result of divided responsibility. The same statement showed that up to that time the incrass figured on a per capita basis had amounted in the aggre gate to i}174,nu!i,5J40. Estimates made to the present time bring tha figures np to 1200,000,000. In view of these tacts, sa^d a senator, a few days since, who opposed the similar change in the senate, would we have had a shortage in the treasury and been compelled to borrow money to meet running ex penses if the change had not been made from the old way of doing business in the house, and if this had been the re sult with only one of the houses doing business in this way, what might we not expect if both houses should adopt it. Before this change was made in the house, the senate had never been known to reduce a house appropriation bill, but it has happened frequently gince. Prctlcally a Lottery.
