Senators Urge Suspension of
MANY MEMBERf ) MAKE MOTIONS.
Two Bills and Tv/o Resolutions on the
Subject Arc Introduced House Ad-
JoUrna After a Lively Tilt Over
the Army Bill.
Washington , Jpn. 6. When the son
ata reconvened yesterday , after the
holiday recess , few senators were ab
sent. Almost Immediately a discus
sion began regarding lye coal situa
tion. Mr. Lodge prefaced his Introduc
tion of a bill suspending for ninety
days the duty on coal , with the state
ment that in New England there was
much distress owing to the scarcity of
coal and that unless relief was af
forded at once a number of factories
would have to shut down. He was
aware , he said , that such a bill should
originate In the house of representa
tives , but It was his desire to call the
attention of the senate committee to
the state of affairs. Mr. Culberson
followed with a resolution providing
for the removal of the duty on anthra
cite coal and asked its Immediate con
sideration. Mr. Platt ( Conn. ) object
ed , saying that it was his understand
ing that there was no duty on anthra
cite coal. Mr. Vest took exception to
this statement and said that the board
of general appraisers and President
Roosevelt had decided that such a
duty Is Imposed. Mr. Vest also Intro
duced a resolution on the subject. An
other resolution bearing on the subject
of coal , Introduced by Mr. Jones
( Ark. ) , recited the charge of W. R.
Hearst that there was an Illegal com
bination among certain railroads to
control the shipment of anthracite
coal and called on the attorney gen
eral for the evidence which It was al
leged had been secured by him. It
caused a lively debater In which sev
eral Republican senators vigorously
resented what they thought was a re
flection on the attorney general. The
discussion continued until 2 o'clock ,
when the resolution went over , being
displaced by the omnibus statehood
bill. Mr. Nelson ( Minn. ) addressed
the senate In opposition to the bill and
favored single statehood for Oklahoma
and Indian territory.
The house resumed work yesterday
after a recess of two weeks , but within
two hours the machinery broke down
for lack of a quorum. The bill to cre
ate a general staff In the1 army was
