Fitzgerald Takes Umbrage at Presi
dent's Action on Grazing Bill.
Washington , April 5. 'Iho houaa
during its session listened to a crit
icism of the president on the part ol
Fitzgerald ( N. Y. ) for tbo failure ol
the chief executive properly to nilvlsu
the house as to the objections ho had
to the bill opening 505,000 acres ol
land for grazing purposes in Okla
homa territory instead of advising UK
members of the Indian affairs com
mlttee as to the weakness of tha
measure so that it might be aa.eulud
to meet the wishes of the commis
sioner of Indian affairs. Fitzgerald ,
In the course of his strictures on tha
president , said :
"This is not Russia. The president
! not like the czar , who originates
and enacts legislation. The president
may recommend , but ho can neithei
originate nor enact legislation. Some
body may say this is trivial. Tha
history of all governments with par
liamentary Institutions shows thai
the failure to resist trivial encroach'
ments on the part of the chief execu
tive has led to vast encroachments ,
until the legislative branch of tha
government existed in name only. "
The postoffico appropriation bill
was then taken up , but beyond tha
explanation of the bill by the chair
man of the postoffice committee. Oven
treet , no headway was made.
NEWLANDS"SPEAKS ON RATE BILL
Advocates Amendments Providing foi
Washington , April 5. In the senata
k Nowlands discussed the railroad rate
bill and Daniel the question of thi
lack ot representation by the southern
states In the public service. Newlanda
advocated amendments to the rate bill
providing for the national incorpora
tion of railroads and announced him
self as favorable to the governmental
ownership of those utilities. Daniel's
speech was based on a provision in
the urgent deficiency appropriation
bill for the representation of the Unit
ed States at the next pan-American
congress , to be held In Rio Janeiro ,
ext July. He said that the plans ol
the state department did not contem
plate representation of the south 01
the far west , and then entered upon a
general consideration of southern par
ticipation in public affairs , contending
that political differences should not
be permitted to prevent such partici
pation on a broader scale. The de
ficiency bill was amended so as to
provide for more delegates , and , aa
amended , was passed.
The senate passed a bill Increasing
the limit of cost for the pMbllc buildIng -

President Mitchell Says Situation
New York , April u. It la the gen
eral belief of those who are closely
watching the situation about the an
thracite miners' headquarters in this
city thai the minerb have definitely
decided to inodlly their domandb. and
will present them to tlie operators
probably this altoinoon. Some of the
members , ot the committee privately
admitted before coming to New York
that the original demands were great
er than the mlneis really expected to
get and the leaders could afford to
trim them down and still leave the
workers enough to be satisfied. It is
believed that if the operators will
meet the men half way on some ot
the demands they have made , such
as a reconstruction of the conciliation
board , an eight-hour day and an in
crease in pay for some classes of labor
the miners would seriously consider
the proposition of renewing the strnco
commission award for not more than
one year. The miners have all along
asserted they would not bind themselves
solves to .any agreement for three
All the district leaders received re
ports from the anthracite fields and
notwithstanding reports that more
coal was mined than yesterday , they
declared the situation was satisfac
tory to them. President Mitchell Is
devoting almost as much time to the
situation , in the bituminous field as
he is to the hard coal region. He Is
hourly in receipt of telegrams from
the Vjest. ; When asked how matters
too'iTjn the soft coal flelda ; > he said :
' ' / 'Emir'ely'satisfactory to me."EvdryJ
thing IB turning outtas I expected , , and' '
I bolle'yetUo situation-in the wost'will
Boon b'ojcljeared up. "
Whe'n. .PresidentMitchell ,
formed th'at President Roosevelt'had '
declined to Interfere with the soft
coal troubles , he showed great Inter
est and inquired if the text of the
president's communication had been
made public. He refused to comment
on the president's action , but ho plain
ly showed he was much gratified at
the stand the president has taken.
In the bituminous field there were
more mines In operation than on the
previous day , and many more are to
resume within a day or two. The
number of men at work In the Pitts-
burg district , however , was not as
largo as was expected. This was duo ,
it Is said , to the factional troubles
within the miners' union in that terri
tory. Negotiations arc under way be
tween the miners and operators In
several districts outside of the cen
tral and southwestern territories , and
while no agreements have yet been
reached , no serious trouble is antici

Man Entombed In France Early In
March Comes Out Alive.
Lens , France , April 5. Another llv <
ing survlvcr of the mine disaster at
Courrleres March 10 was discovered
and brought out of the pit.
The finding of another miner allvo
after twenty-five days' entombment
caused intense excitement. The man
was found in pit 4. Ho was In good
condition. According to his first
statements this man , Auguste Merlon ,
suffered less than the preceding res
cued men. Ho is thirty-two years old
and was born in the same place as
Nemy , the leader of the thirteen men
rescued March 30.
As the news spread through the re
gion It caused extreme exasperation
against the engineers who have been
directing the salvage work. M. Leon ,
the state engineer , when he arrived
at the pit was surrounded by a crowa
of people , who cursed and swore at
him , one woman going so far as to
strike the engineer.
Borton described his experience as
follows : "I found some lunch bags
which had belonged to the men who
had been killed by the explosion , and
I lived on Jhe food I found In them.
'I sufjerei from the scold and 'took
