WASHINGTON , April 1J. Comparatively
little business WM transacted by the senate
today , all of ( be senator * being fttlgueJ
on account of their long vigil lost night
over the Cuban resolutions.
Consideration of the eundry civil appro
priation bill wan resumed and the wide latl-
< udo of debate permitted under the rules oi
the enate afforded opportunity for some ex
planation * to be made concerning the action
of the senate upon the Cuban question.
Mr. Cockrcll ( Mo. ) and Mr. Bacon ( Ga. )
Vxplilned the action of the democrats In voting
ing against the conference report lo the
early hours of thla morning and the col
loquies that ensued between them and some
of tde republican acnatora were spicy and
A running fire of debate was precipitated ,
nwlikd waa participated In by Mr. Mantle
( Mont. ) , Mr. Cannon ( Utah ) , Mr. Halo ( Me. ) ,
Mr. Spooncr ( Win. ) , and others , the dlscua-
lon lasting about tliree hours.
I At the opening ot the session the excit
ing and mcmcntous occnta ot the last week
bid given nay to a dull and somber routine.
'Attendance ' on the floor and in the galleries
wad small.
At 12:27 p. m. a message "was received fcom
tbo house announcing the signature of the
speaker to the Cuban resolutions.
Right minute * afterward tpo vice presi
dent announced his signature to the resolu
In accordance with 'his announcement made
yesterday illat lie proposed to Insist on the
recognition ot the Cuban republic , Mr. Allen
( Neb. ) offered the following resolution , which
i a referred to the committee on foreign
relations. .
That > th ? political Indepfnrtenoe of the re
public of Cuba , the cupltnl ot which is lo
cated ftt Oubltoa , Is hereby recognized by
illici Unltnl States of America n3 the lawful
Rovernmrnt ot the trVaml of Cuba ! that the
lUnlted Stntcn hercl/y ipUtljres to the Bald

othur lmU > btedn' c.'f ' Sp.iln , contracted dur-
, Jng or prior to hostilities between the re-
tprc'lve KOveTnnN.r.t8 of Cuba and Spain.
Mr. Stewart ( Ncv. ) said the resolution re
minded him of the very ancient and sapient
echemo of locking the door after the horse
is stolen.
Mr. Allen declared that he was quite satis
fied that under the present arrangement the
Island of Cuba would pass Into the hands
of "financial cormorants and financial buz-
tirds" unless the United States should at
once take measures to protect the Island and
Its people.
The senate then resumed .consideration of
the sundry civil bill.
Mr. Pettus ( Ala. ) offered an amendment
providing for the coaling of shifts of war and
itholr bargea at the wharves of Mobile , Ala. ,
and providing for an appropriation of $200,000
lo be expended by the secretary of war as he
may decide.
Mr. Pettua urged that this Tvas a war
Bieaaure and ought to bo adopted.
Mr. Gorman ( Md. ) urged Mr. Pettus to
withdraw the amendment. Other senators ,
Jio said , withheld similar amendments which
they had been urged to press because it was
not desirable that the sundry civil bill should
tie a river and harbor measure.
Mr. Pettus then withdrew the amendment.
In the course of a dry routine dlrcusslon
of a minor amendment to the pending bill
Mr. Cockrell ( Mo. ) Injected sonte life Into
the debate by throwing down the gauntlet
to Mr. Hale for some utterances the latter
had made during the Cuban debate.
He expressed the , desire that Mr. 'Hale
would uce his great Influence , to get the re-
publlcana In line on the pending amendment
Mr. Halo expressed the hope that all re
ipubllcans would be In ) solid phalanx In sup
port of their president and their party. "I
may be pardoned , too , tor expressing the
hope. " said Mr. Hale , tauntingly , "that all
democrats add all members of other parties
hall be found supporting not the president
Icaie , but the country , la all patriotic mat
ter * . "
"I , .too , sball welcome the day when men
of all parties may Join with the president
In support of patriotic policies , " declared
Mr. Coekrell. "but If the president of the
United States expects me to be a tall to
JiU kite and to swing along to bio ccat
talla he will find himself greatly mistaken. "
Mr. Cockrell then launched Into on ex
tended speech In Wh'lch he oharply attacked
the administration and congress for their
action on the Cuban question.
iMr. Cockrell reverted to the purpose of
the resolution psjwed early this morning , in
timating that It would enable thoao so ln-
cllncO to take advantags ot the Cuban pa
When he referred to the action ot the
enote and of congteei * -yesterday Mr.
Halo Interrupted him > to Inquire why It wax
, th t tha democrato ot the senate practically
a a body voted against the action for which
they had been clamoring for months. "I
can understand , " lie eald , "the senator from
iMlcsotul may have become a trifle sensitive
over night. "
"Not at all , " declared Mr. Cockrell ,
mover was moro glad ot any vote that I
ever cant than that I cast la the early
liours ot thU morning. The vote * we cost
were a manifestation of devotion to principle ,
to the principles long upheld by the Cuban
patriots. "
'Mr. ' Hale then called attention to the fore
cast ho had made last Saturday night , which
was In effect that the democrats were op
posed to any action. He did not expect hla
forecast so soon substantiated.
i.Mr. Cockrell replied that when the ques
tion finally came before .the senate It was
on the particular matter 04 to whether the
recognition of Independence should be In
corporated In the resolution. That amend
ment. Mr. Cockrell contended , was the only
point In Issue on the final vote.
"As a matter of fact. " interjected M .
Spooner , "this wbolo business waa a party
play and a democratic party play and they
cannot put men on this side in a hole by
any exhibition of a 'boiler than thou * policy
on that point. "
Mr. Bacon ( aa. ) continued the discussion
of the position of the democrats , taking the
came pcsttlon he took last night , that as
the democrats had voted time and again in
support of their position , eo they voted to
sustain It by opposing the conference report
which atruck out tfco provttloo for recogni
tion of Independence.
He contended that as matters of differ
ence only go Into the conference , the vote
of the senate on the conference report waa
only en the Turple amendment for the recog
nition ot the Insurgents , and that consequently
quently thee who had voted against the
conference report had only again recorded
themselves In favor of the Turple amend-
, sBeiit.
i Mr. I ) a ecu and Mr. Spooner fell Into a
technical dbcusslon as to wliat woo Implied
in a vote for a conference report , In which
tuany senators participated.
Mr. Uacon declared that tha resolutions
would bave become a law If the Turple
amendment bad prevailed , tb only differ
ent being that In that event the Insurgent
government would tvive been recognized *
To thla proposition many republicans
shouted "No , " "No , " In unkton , but ncoe at
that time attempted to explain the reiooai
( or their distent.
All this had trecrft In ( ( IB way ot Interrup
tion during Mr. Cockrell's speech. He re
sumed at thU point hla discussion * of tha
preildeni's policy , which , ho contended , from
the president's own language , meant Inter
vention la the shape of "hostile constraint'
upas , botfc parties to U * Cubaa war , upoa
the Cubans as much i upon the Spaniards.
II contended tfat this policy only looked
o a pacification ot the taUnd of Cuba , not
to the expulsion , of the Spaniards , or tha
eatabllshme-nt of a republic In Cuba.
Without concluding his speech , Mr. Cock-
rflt yielded for an executive sivilon at 3:40. :
D. m.
At 4:05 : p. m. the senate adjourned.

WASHINGTON , April 19. The house pre
sented a most desolate appearance when It
convened at noon after the weary all-night
While the journal was being read Mr.
\itzer \ ( rep. , la. ) , chairman ot the commit
tee on enrolled bills , brought In the Cuban
resolutions , which had been enrolled under
his personal direction.
The speaker Immediately signed them and
as soon as the reading of the Journal was
concluded , at 12:16 : p. m. , he announced his
signature. There was no demonstration.
The enrolling clerk at hli side seized the
resolutions and hurried with them across the
Mr. Orosvenor then , ai o question ot
pprsonal privilege , had read * t the clerk's
desk an editorial tii a New York paper
commenting on his statement In the
bouse on April 7. that "this nor will bo
fought under the banner of the republican
administration of this government or It
will not bo foueht at all. "
Mr.Grosvenor explained the circum
stances under which the statement waa
made. Ho had been delighted with the
record the democratic party had made and
in the statement ho had only meant that
as the present administration had tbrce
years to run that the war which was upon
us must bo fought during Its llfo or not
at all. Ho had meant no reflection and
had appealed to both sides of the house to
stand by the executive , who had been as
"In tills connection , " concluded Mr.
Grosvenor. "I desire to ray this war will
be energetically uaced , both in a military
sense and In the legislation necessary to
carry It en , and I believe the response to
the call to arms will be unanimous. There
will be no political dlvlHon. U will come
from democrats and populists , as well as
from republicans , and especially do I be
lieve the reiponso of patriotism will come
from every southern state , and that the
whole union will share the triumphant
echo of loyalty. " ( Great applause. )
Mr. Dlngley said that In view ot the
fact that the house had been sitting all
night and that the members were weary
he would move to adjourn. Accordingly ,
at 12:32 : p , m. , the house adjourned.

Side Light ! on the Movement of Troopi
Show Some Humor ,
Ponr-Foo'teil Dewe-rter Who Delayed
the Start of the Twenty-Hrooml
InfnnJry Sleeping Citrn nnil
Cars to Sit l'i > In.
There are many humorous as well as pa
thetic Incident ! connected with the moving
of the government troops. Those who wont
to Port Crook on Monday atternoon to say
good-bye to the Twenty-second rww quite 3 *
many things that atruck them as funny as
they did those quieter affairs that moved
them to sympathy. One of the most laugh
able of the former kind waa the search In
the darkness of the night for an obstreper
ous mule that positively refused to go to
war and seized the Orst opportunity to de
It was well along toward 9 o'closk and the
work of loading the train that was to carry
the property of the Twenty-second was pro
ceeding slowly enough. Several hones and
more mules had balked o.i reaching the
gangplank leading up lo the freight oar ? ,
but this particular mule was the first that
could not be ultimately landed for the ex
pedition. After a few unsuccessful at
tempts .had been made to get him Into the
car ho was allowed a few minutes' rest at
the bottom of the gangplank for another
round. Mr. Mule knew a good thing when
ho saw It. and not being much of a jingo ,
he just gave a leap , took a 'running Rt.trt ,
knocked over a pair of hostl ra and wai
away Inward the paralo grounds before ti.o
auartormaftter was * Informed of the deser
tion. The report of hU departure wis
dulv made and nassed on un to the high
est officers. A hastily asssmh'cfl ' court
declared that Mr. mule shouU not be wit
was not free and Independent. A requlirt-
tlon was Issued for his ointuro aivJ return
to the car. Mr. Mule did not agree with
the flndlnir of the court. While .ho train
was kept waiting .ill the other animals
and property being parke.l , and while the
Omahans were curikie tne mule that Indi
rectly -caused the delay of the train on
which they were 'to return home , three
privates wore se-archlne all over 'ho brMd
narade eroundp and In othw parts of ! hu
post for the missing mule. They mljlit as
well have/ used their lanterns to hunt for
an honest man. for no trace of the mule
rould ba found. Thoueh ho was fannied
tram Cuba to Harlem , Mr. Mule had the
unique honor of be'ng the only deserter
from the Twentv-second whose'ubsentiitlon
could can to .1 delay of an hour and a' half
In the departure of the specUl train.
Another ludicrous matfer Uiat did not
escape attention waa to watch' Charles Mason
Talcott , the affable- assistant superintendent
of the Pullman Palace Car company , making
up berths In the eleepers and Instructing
some brand now porters In their multi
tudinous duties lo and about ttie caw. The
present movement of troops U the greatest
of this kind since the war and It la also
the blggfat movement of travel that western
reads have been called upon to handle since
the Christian Endeavorers Journeyed across
the continent laet summer. The result Is a
discrepancy between the supply and the de-
mead of sleeping care , botti flrst-clnss and
second-elate , or standard and tourist. The
award ol transportation of the Twenty-second
to the Missouri Pacific came ao quickly on
Sunday night that there were not enough
Bleeping cars on hind and there was also
a shortage In linen and porters. Some sleep
ers not In use were hurried up from Kanaat
City , Mo. , and Mr. Talcott went down from
hero with a aupply of linen for tbj > cars and
some young colored men he had hastily
drafted Into the service. He had a merry
time of It In breaking In his ebony under- ,
studlrs , and " hey had , an equal Interesting ,
time In 'thelr first wrestle with a Piillmah
berth. Ao the train that was to leave In the
afternoon did not got away until late at night
the new porters had plenty of time to prac
tice on making the berths , and one of them
made and unmade ono bed no less than eev-
cnteen times for practice during that Interval.
The average soldier in the army wants a
bed when he travels and as a rule his com- ,
mandlng officer agrees with him. The mem
ory of times when soldiers had to travel In
clock cars does not help the ordinary pri
vate to rest more comfortably In u high-
back coach or a chair car. Standard sleep
ers are always furnished the officer ? , but
tourist Bleeping cars cannot always be bad
for the prhates and Uncle Sam could not
think of affording flrst-clau sleepers for all
his soldier * . The -railroad - companies do not
keep a supply of tourist sleepers on hand.
The oars belong to the sleeping car com
panies and most of those for use on western
roads are kept In Chicago and Buffalo. Con
sequently there la a delay in getting them
out to points for service when they are
wanted. This fact explains why chair cars
and coaches wore mostly need In the move
ment of the army. The army could not
wait until the tourist cars were obtained
from the distant yards of > th sleeping car
The troops at Fort Crook , except the offi
cers , were moved In comfortable high-back
coaches , but the eoldlers would have much
preferred the tourist sleeping cars , which
would have allowed them to lie down and
Bleep during the night time. But the tour
ist deepens were not to .bo obtained without
a wait of several days and the Twenty-nee-
end had Instructions to move on to Mobile
' at once. The commandant of ono of the
'posts in Indian Territory telegraphed here
yesterday that he would not move his
soldiers unless tourist sleepera were fur
nished them. Of court * he did not mean
what he wrote , but the Incident shows that
there Is a manifest opposition to making the
privates getting their sleep enroute while
sitting up In a straightbackcoach or chair
Chief QowrtemtHMite * ' 'Asked to Skip

Captain Samuel R. Jones , acting . ' chief
quartermaster of the Department of the Mis
souri , .last evening received a telegram from
the War department Indicating quickened
preparation throughout the army. Some
tlmo ago the department received word to
ship by freight all the available pack tralno
that could be obtained la the department
to St. Louis. Last night a telegram was
received ordering Captain Joneu to get all
pack trains available at once and to for
ward the same by expreea to St. Lou la.
A prominent army officer of the Depart
ment of the- Missouri last evening eald :
"There Is no truth In the report that there
have been a large number of desertions from
the Twenty-second before or after leaving
Fort Crook , or during the departure. Til ere
are always a few men skip out whenever a
regiment leaves a post , sad there were four
or five during the last fortnight at For :
Crook. That Is all there Is to report. "
Incidentally , It has coat the government

Department of the Mlminiirl Get * It *
Men Off Knrlj.
Nearly all the troops In the Djpartment
ot the Missouri have now started on their
Journey to Chlckamauga and Mobile. With
regard to expeditious movement , from the
time the general orders to move were re
ceived until the troops were traveling on
the road , It Is conceded by railroad men
that this department la far ahead of all
the others. The credit for the handling of
the trocps In thla department la largely
due to Captain Samuel R. JonoJ of thU city ,
who Is assistant to. Chief Quartermaster
Pond of th's department , and who of late
has been acting ' as chief quar
termaster. Captain Jones has been
ably asalstei In this work by T. P.
Mahoney , master ot traa-pa'tatlon , whoso
long experience with the Union Pacific has
groitiy aide ! him In solving the railroad
problems as tbey have come up. Captain
Jones will remain at'department headquar
ters In 'this city , and It Is probable that
he will have direct supervision of < thc trcrts-
portatlon of all the mllltla and volunteers
that may te called out by the president
from this department. Master of Transpor
tation Ma-honey will leave for Mciblle on

In view of the mobilization of United
States troops In the southeast and a prospec
tive campaign In Cuba , the provisioning of
euch a bady of troops becomes one of the
most Important questions with willed tfao
routine or the Army department has to deal ,
Orders have already been seal out tor the
purchase of supplies in large quantities , and
Omaha , by virtue of Its prominence as a
packing center. Is likely to profit to a con
siderable extent. The Cudihy Packing com
pany lias already sold a big consignment of
biK to the government end Swifts and
Hammonds are also expecting to assist In
providing some of the rations for Uncle Sim's
soldiers. Information was received here yes
terday that sixty refrigerator ears were on
their way to Omaha to be used In conveying
packing house products to Uio army. TXil/J
Intelligence Is confirmed at the local trelgbt
offices , but at army headquarters nothing Is
know'uof the matter. The array officials eay
that'auch ' an order would undoubtedly como
from outsldo of this department and that It
is very probable that bids bave been called
for on alxty cars of beef. They say , however ,
that not raore than one or two cars would be
shipped from Oratha at a time , ae one car of
beef would bo enough to feed the 5,000 troops
that will be at Chlckamauga for flve days.
The troops that will be mobilized in the
south will be provided with thirty cJiyn'
rations. Theao will be In the shape of the
regular Belt ) rations and It Is stated that
It would be .no unusual tax on the sourcea
of supply to provide these rations for an
army of 200,000 men or ten times as many
as are being mobilized at Chlckamuuga ,
Tampa , Mobile and New Orleans. The pya-
tcm of purchase , transportation and dlstrlbu-
tlon hao all been .carefully Worked out and
It is believed that It will bo sufficient to
meet any emergency without confusion. The
expense ot furnU'hlng ' supplies will not be
much greater than In times ot peace and the
resources of this country are DO limitless
that nothing less than putting 1,000,000 men
In the field would bo likely to materially
affect the marketn.
The field rations which will bo made up
and shipped to the mobilized troop. ! In the
aouth consist of the following articles , the
net weight of each per thousand ratloni be
ing as follows : Bacon , 750 pounds ; bard
bread , a species of cracker , 1,000 pounds ;
baked beans. 150 pounds ; potatoea , 1,000
pounds ; coffee , roasted , SO pounds ; sugar , 150
pounds ; vinegar , SO pounds ; candles , IS
pounds ; soap , 40 pounds ; eilt , 40 pounds ;
black pepper , 2V , pounds ; a total of 3,307ft
pounds net , or 3.63S pounds grots.
It Is estimated that It will take 50,000
pounds of the field ration for each regiment.
Thla ration will be augmented later on by
purchases In the various localities by sub
sistence officers , who are authorized to pur
chase delicacies of the season and other at
tractive diet which add greatly to the mces.
