From All of the Triol'
WASHIXOTON, June 26.—The senate
Pacific railroads lias
agreed to report favorably the resolution
introduced by Senator Harris of Kan
sas, expressing the sense of the senate
that the United States should redeem
the Union Pacific railway from prior
liens and take steps to foreclose the
government mortgage. The resolution
was amended by the addition of a pro
vision at the instance of Senator Mor
gan requesting ihe president to "sus-
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
'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
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.

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
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.

DUBUVL'E, la., June 26.—Archbishop
Hennessy created a sensation by an at
tack on the public schools in au address
to the pupus at St. Clara's academy,
Sinsinawa, Wis. He denounced them as
irreligious and therefore dangerous for
future generations claimed tliat the
Catholics paid one-seventh of the $500,
000,0:0 whi 'h it costs to support the
public schools, but were denied the
privileges of religious education. The
entire address Was a denunciation of the
public schools system aud laudatory of
the parish schools.

vigorously against the action of the
United States as to Hawaii, which, it
adds, may soon be followed by an at

"Europe," it says, "has every reason
to oppose the Strengthening of the

Absence of a Qnornm Gives Mr.
Vest an Opportunity For
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.
Mr. Morgan referred incidentally to
Japan's protest against the annexation
of Hawaii to the United States,
Nuciifierfeit at
which subject he said he thought Japan
possible ground of complaint.
It was unfortunate at this particular
time to have this particular nation
feel tlio ferocity of this tariff bill, al
though Mr. Morgan declared there was
not a nation from Mexico to Turkey
which did not know that the United
States was about to enter upon a war
against the commerce of the world.
Mr. White's amendment, limiting
the duties to 200 per cent, was rejected,
2:} to 28.
The silk schedule was completed and
tobacco taken up.
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
English Opinion of .lupanV Attitude.
LONDON, June 2*.—The Daily Graphic
say*editorially: "Japan is likely to de
feat her own ends by addressing a belli
cose remonstrance to the United States i and surgeon,
oil the subject of Hawaii.^ The policy of
annexation is not very popular in Amer
ica, but any attempt at dictation will
only be resented and will strengthen
the case for the annexationists."
