Washington , .Juno 20. An Isthmian
canal , while not assured , Is nearer to
construction than it has over been.
, The -senate yesterday , by a majority
of eight votes , adopted the Spooner
substitute for the Hepburn Nicaragua
canal bill , the vote on the substltuto
being 42 to 34. After two amend *
xnents to the measure had been adopt *
ed , one providing for a commission
of seven to supervise the construction
of the canal and the other providing
for the issuance of $130,000,000 of 2
per cent gold bonds to raise money
with which to construct the waterway ,
It was passed by a vote of G7 to G.
It has been evident for several days
that the Spooner substitute , which , In
brief , provides that the president shall
Eclcct the Panama route if he can ob
tain a clear title to the Panama
Canal company's property , but otherWise -
Wise he shall adopt the Nicaragua
V , rout would command the votes of a
majority of the senate. The Panama
route was considered more desirable
by the senate than the Nicaragua
The only question left open la the
title to the property , and that the
president will determine If the house
ehould adopt the senate's ' amendment
to Us , bill. , .
Morgan ( Ala. ) closed the day's do-
Late with an earnest appeal for the
adoption of the Nicaragua route. He
had been preceded by Clark . ( Mont. )
In support of th $ Nicaragua route.
nnd. Allison ( la. ) In support of the
Spooner proposition. Only minor
atnendments , .except , those Indicated ,
wer9 adopted , all othcrjs being voted

> The senate Miad some debate over
the trouble Into which It had gotten
with the house over amendments , to
the 'army appropriation bill and finally
nsked for a conference with the house ,
finally ignoring "the otfenslve mes
sage" which causejl the trouble.
-The Spooner amendment , as adopt
ed , provides that thq president ,
through the , law officers of the govern-
aenf , shall determine whether a clear
title can be secured of the. Panama
property , rights and concessions. If
he shall be satisfied that such title
can be obtained , he shall purchase
the property , rights and concessions
for $40,000,000. If , In his Opinion , a.
clear title cannot be obtained , he shall
proceed to construct an isthmian ca
nal by the Nicaragua route.
Section 5 appropriates ? 10,000,000
toward the project contemplated anc
provides that appropriations are not
to exceed the aggregate additional
Bum of $135,000.000 If the Panama
route be adopted , or $180,000,000

Contends In the House That It Should
_ N Be a Party Question.
HJj Washington , , June 207-jThe .opening
" ' '
"day _ of .ih'e4 week's 'debate , on the Phil
Ipplne government bill In the house
jwas signalized by a remarkably
"strong and exhaustive speech b ;
Cooper ( Wls. ) , chairman of the com
xnlttee on Insular affairs. He spoke
for almost three1 hours andxwas given
close attention b'y both sides of the
bouse. Much of the speech was a
general defense of the policy pursuec
by the administration and drew re
peateu applause from his side of the
bouse. Ho contended that the prob
lem of the Philippines should not be
n party question ; that both polltlca
parties brought "on the war with
Spain and the votes of members o
b'oth parties ratified the. treaty which
made the Islands 'American territory
The most tolling portion of his speech
was the parallel ho drew between the
present attitude of. the opposition ant
the attitude of the opposition during
and immediately succeeding the civl
vmr. Jones ( Va. ) made an able pro
eentntlon of the Democratic position

UNED AT WHITE HOUSE.
President Entertains Senators Who
.Are Favorable to Reciprocity.
Washlrgton , June 20. The prcal *
dent hist night gavoka dinner to about
a. dozen leading iRejpubUcan aonatort
favorable to Cuban reciprocity ano )
discussed with them the ways and ,
means 9f securing a * reduction of the
duty on 'Cuban products in orc.or that
the pledges made to Cuba may bo re
deemed. Among those at the dinner
wore Senators Allison , Aldrich , Halo ,
Spooner. Lodge nnd Platt.
, The president Is steadfast In his
determination that In some form or
other and at the earliest opportunity
hero shall bo secured to the now re
public of Cuba a substantial reduction
of the Import tariff on her exporta
o the United States so that her people
ple may feel that this country has
copt every promise made to them and
mve done nil that could bo fairly ex
pected to assure permanence nnd
irosperlty to their newly established
; oveinment. How or when the result
will bo obtained Is a matter that the
president must leave to future devel
opments , but It can be stated by au
thority that the administration will
continue unremitting In its endeavors
until It accomplishes Cuban reciproc
ity In some form or other.
The president and the senators also
considered the question of the final
adjournment of congress and after Its
consideration , one of those present
expressed the opinion that congress
would adjourn by the first week In
July. He hardly thought anything
would be done In a legislative way on
Cuban reciprocity at this season.

SETTLEMENT NOW POSTPONED.
Calling of National Miners' Conven
tion Suspends Negotiations.
Wilkosbarre , Pa. , June 20. Now
( .hat the call lor a special national
convention has been made for July 17 ,
It Is not expected there will bo any
very Important developments in the
coal strike situation until that timo.
A little dissatisfaction was ex
pressed by some of the strikers that
the date of the convention was sot a
mdnth hence. They feel that some
thing ought to be done without wait
ing thirty days. While the loaders
around strike headquarters will not
talk , it Is believed the fixing of the
date for July 17 was a wise move. A
total suspension , or even a partial
curtailment of production , would have
a serious effect on the business Inter
ests of the country , and it is hoped
that during the next month some plan
may be devised by which such a state
of affairs can be avoided. A total sus
pension of coal mining Is practically
impossible , because the United Mine
Workers' organization could not con
trol all the miners in the country.
Conditions in the anthracite region
remain unchanged. The entire coal
belt was extremely quiet.
Strikers Use Dynamite.
Roanoke , Va. , June 20. The bodies
of Henry Hartson and Peter Hartson ,

iamson , W. Va. , where they were
killed by an explosion of dynamite in
a mine , yesterday. A miner who ac
companied the remains is reported as
having said that about twenty-five
miners were at work In a mine near
Williamson when a crowd of strikers ,
armed with rifles , demanded that they
[ Should come out. Uppn the miners re
fusing to , _ obey the strikers threw a
quantity of dynamite Into one shaft ,
which exploded , killing five men. As
soon as the survivors cameout _ of the
shaft the strikers fired upon them ,
Injuring several , though none was
thought to be fatally shot.

Pittsburgh' Kan. , June 20 , The
