P' nd proceedings to carry into effect the ULTccment alleged to have been made to sell the interests of the United States in the Union Pacific railroad, and in the f-inking fund until further action of i-i ingress is had in reference thereto." The action of the committee was unanimous. Senator Harris was au thorized to make the report. Mr. Harris' Viotrs. In presenting the resolution to tin senate Mr. Harris will introduce are port which, while it is not authorized u* a committee report, gives the Kan sas senator's views and indicates the reasons of tlie committee for the action taken. In this respect it is stated that it was the intention of congress that 1 'acific railroads should constitute a con tinuous national highway, and thus pn K veils: "When the executive department of the government consents to an arrange ment by which this fundamental object of the law is absolutely and forever di l. ated, and the great line so highly prized is to be divided up among warring and conflicting interest it is time for au earnest and .emphatic protest all 011 the iart i congress, and when, further, it is found that the executive not only per mits, but actually participates and aids 111 the execution of this destruction, as shown by the correspondence as given by the letters from the attorney general in response to the senate resolution of Jan. 23 and March 26, 1897, and hereto attached, and actually proposes to con sent to a surrender of the sinking fund and tlio enormous sacrifice of the pecu niary interests of the government, it would seem beyond the power of the most able of corporation agencies to sat isfactorily explain such action. This correspondence shows letters from various government directors highly approving this unlawful proceeding. If we are to believe the current news of the day, some of the directors are largely interested^! the proposed new and be convinced. organization, and history seems about to n-ioat itself, and the practices of the Credit Mobilier, and the construction of the comianies of the past to be once more revived and put in operation. If the government has knowledge of this plan of reorganization it has not been communicated to congress and the haste in the sale of the property under the existing agreement with the former executive, which is evidently a part of the plan required requires the active intervention of congress in demanding a full knowledge of the plan ill course of execution." Figures are added »o show that under the ]iri ]osed reorganization the govern ment would lose $24,7N4,31M, and it is also claimed tliat the great losses would be sustained by other creditors. SIEGE OF HAIL STONES. To]M'ka, leaveiilrip »treni?th Kan., Kxperlences the Wont Storm of the Kind in Its History. TOPRK Kan., June 2(5.—The worst hail storm known in the history of I Kansas struck this city shortly after 0 p.m. Hail stones weighing 12 to 16 ounces stripped the treesof their foliage, smashed window panes on every hand, including the finest plate glass store fronts, cut down telegraph and tele phone wires, riddled awnings and in flicted unprecedented damage through out the city. Dogs were struck in the streets and instantly killed. Horses were knocked to their knees to rise again and dash away in mad fright. Many runaways occurred throughout the city. When the fury of the storm had passed dead birds wire found every where. Heavy WlaJ ud Terrific Lightning accompanied the storm. Topeka looks like a city .that- has withstood a siege of war guns. There are not a dozen build ings in the town that are not almost window less and many roofs were caved in. The roofs of street cars also were pierced. Tin- damage wrought can let ter be imagined when it is known that the hail stones ranged in size from that of a hen's egg to an ostrich egg and that yo minutes after the storm one hail tone was picked up which measured 14 inches in circumference. Surgeons are busy dressing the wounds of persons injured in the storm, several of whom may die. Many were hurt in runaways on the streets. CREATED A SENSATION.

Western Senators Beg For a Re duction on Silks But Are •3T- Defeated. Absence of a Qnornm Gives Mr. Vest an Opportunity For Sarcasm. WASHINGTON, June 26. —'The resolu tion of Mr. Hale (Me.) relative to re stricting the privileges of ex-senators on the floor of the senate to those not in terested in legislation and claims, was referred without comment to the com mittee 011 rules. Consideration of the wool schedule of the tariff bill was resumed at paragraph 307 relating to aubosson, axinin.ster, nioqnette and chenille carpets. Mr. Vest (Mo.) moved to strike out the specific rate. The vote was 17 to 24, four short of a quorum. There was some delay in announcing the result, owing to the anxiety to secure a quorum, but Mr. Vest insisted on a speedy an nouncement, remarking that the suffer ing country could not wait while Re publican senators mustered a quorum. When the want of a quorum was an nounced, Mr. Vest derisively said: "And this, with the country just wal lowing and dying while the bill waits." "The senator is out of order," inter posed Mr. Chandler jocularly. "And so is the country," added Mr. Gray (Del.) A call of the senate brought 52 sena tors to the chamber, and Mr. Vest's amendment was then rejected—21 to 26. The consideration of the wool sched ule was completed at 1 o'clock. Mr. Vest offered a number of amendments but was defeated in each instance, the schedule being adopted as suggested by the finance committee. The silk sched ule was at once taken up. l'reelpitiited a Livt-ly le1»ate. The silk schedule precipitated quite A lively debate, the Western and coast senators contending that committee rates were excessive, prohibitive and burdensome. They "claimed the rates run from 70 to 700 per cent. Messrs. Jones, Vest, Mantle, White, Teller and Piatt (Conn.) took part in the debate. The latter held that the government figures showed the rates to average 75 per cent. Efforts to reduce the com mittee rates were rejected.

OPPOSING THE POPULAR WILL Act of the Canadian Senate May Wipe It Out of Kxintcncc. NEW YORK, June 2FI.—A dispatch from Ottawa, Out., to The Press says: A political crisis that may result in a radical change in the constitution of Canada is imminent. The senate, a majority of whose members are Torv derelicts of past federal and provincial governments, has declined to ratify cer tain contracts made by the present Lib eral ministry. The ministry have put into the estimates items which enable them to carry on the contracts. Should the senate defeat them an appeal to the people against the senate will l)e in evitable. This is the lirst time in its history that the senate has undertaken to grapple with the lower house, elected by the people. The outcome will be watched with intense interest, for it may be the legiiining of the end of the senate. English Opinion of .lupanV Attitude.
