PrcaulcnC Adams says of the reports of liis
interview with the secretary of the in eripr :
' There 'u absolutely * no truth in the stories
that I proto ted against the government
report. I.did nothing of the kind. The rail
road commission mentioned to the secretary of
the interior ihat I wa * in town , and the latter
sent for me. Wo had a p'easant '
chat for ten minutes. No reference vras
made to report , but the reporters jumped to
the conclusion that I was protesting against
lomethin/ . The i ep irt contains some unpleas
ant facts but nothing mjro than everybody
knows and no exception can bo taken to it
by the ciimpany. Government wai given
every facility to get at the facts and nil this
talk about ttrictures and inferences and pro
tests is non euso. The report makes no
chirgoj ogai.ist the company but simply states
facts which havoloug bdon published.

preliminary discussion as to the probablu ad

the adoption of the amendments proposed to
the bill , Beck said the coimnisiloucr of pen
sions had cstinihtoJ the amount at about

about * 2oG,000,000 to a bill that originally
called for § 5,000,000. Ho presumed tno In
