MITCHELL ON THE MEETING
Thlaks National Clvle Federation
Will Minimise possibility
INDIANAPOUS. Feb. 23. President
Mitchell of tha United Mlna Workers of
America discussed today the meeting of
the executive committee of the National
Clvlo federation at 'New York, from which
ha haa Just returned. 1 '
Tha executive committee waa appointed
to consider ways and means of bringing
labor and capital Into closer relationship.
Tha committee adopted a constitution and
by-laws and hereafter will meat onca each
year, unless called together by an emer
gency. President Mitchell firmly believes
that the object for which tha comnJttee
waa appointed will be aehleved and points
to tbe settling of the big strike tt gar
ment worhra. in flew .York roceruiyJln
wnich oyer su.ooo . persons were out, aa
one of the results already obtained.
Tha agreement In thlp strike was reached
entirely through the instrumentality of
members 'of the Committee, the garment
workers being granted a shorter working
day, from nine to eight hours and a half.
Said President Mitchell: "While It will.
of course, not avert all strikes, it will re
duce them materially and minimise tbe
possibility of long-drawn-out struggles In
which vaitt sums of money are lost both
to the employers and their men. Tha com
mittee will act whenever it is requested to
do ao and whera the opportunity presents
itself will offer Its services voluntarily.
It will not attempt to arbitrate differences,
of course, unless there Is a request from
both sides and then only when It is agreed
to abide by Its decision."

NOYES TO . BE DISMISSED
Attorney General Knox Finds Alaskan
Judge Gnllty of Mia
eoadact. WASHINGTON. Feb.x 23. Attorney Gen
eral Knox-haa delivered to the president
his findings In the matter ot the charges
filed against Arthur H. Noyea. Judge of the
second division ot the United States court
for Alaska. . Tha charges allege incom
petency and corruption, although the at
torney general says tha charge of dis
honesty wss not pressed. After reviewing
tha casa at length tha attorney general
concludes bis report aa follows:
Such waa the end of thla Nome litiga
tion, out of Which has sprung so much
complaint, bitterness and public scandal.
After review it remains that tba actual
consequences of thuae prooeedliifis In the
Alaska district court were to bring that
court into dlcrespect, and to impair publio
confidence In Its wise and Impartial admin
istration of Justice.
In view of the foregoing, and after the
most careful consideration. I hava con-clti-led:
First That tha appointment of a re
ceiver In the rases referred to, without no
tice to the defendants, and the refusal
upon hearing to discharge the receiver,
S-nd. the consequent dlHpoaaesslon of the
defendants ot their property, were not
justined under the facts, the pleadings and
the principles of equity.
Second That tin-re is no Justification
shown for the reruanl by Judg Noya to
settle a Mil of ckctititlwiiS at ti. li.tuc
of the defendants and for tha retusul to
allow them an appeal. V
Third That aftr an appeal had been
allowed by the circuit court of appeals,
and after a writ of supersedeas hid been
served on Judge Noyea, the plaintiffs and
the receiver. Judge Noyejr attitude toward
the writ was one of hostility and obstruc
tion, whU-h waa totally inconsistent with
his Judicial duty toward a superior court
and toward the litigants, seeking through
that court reversal of hla Judicial action.
Konrth That J mice Nvs should forth
with ba removed from ottlce,
Tba president will approve of these find
ings and promptly dismiss Judge Noyea from

PUNISHMENT FOR SENATORS

AT LEAST ONE MONTH 0F OSTRACISM
Farther Apologies Are Reejnlred to
Be Snhmltted In Writing Before
Belligerents Are Pnrged of
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. The topic ot
chief interest, In senatorial circles today,
and, la fact, everywhere In official Washing
ton, was the fight in the senate yesterday
between Senatora Tillman and McLaurln
of Sonth Carolina. Numerous conferences
hava been held among senators as to what
should ba done to preserve tha dignity of
the senate and to manifest Its sentiment
with reference to tbe two senators who
violated Its traditions. While no plan ot
procsdure has been agreed upon. It ta
learned that there will be deliberate action
and it Is likely It will not ba less than
thirty days before tbe South Carolina sen
ators are restored to their full power at
senators, thla deliberation on their casa
being la tbe nature of a punishment, since
they will not ha allowed to 'address tbe
senate nor to vote until no longer In
contempt cf the senate.
Senator Burrows la chairman of tha com
mittee oa privileges and elections, and to
night ha. said that In advance of any meet
ing ot tbe committee he could not say
what would ba done, but he added that
tha matter Is ot such serious Import that
it must receive careful consideration. It
will be a day or two before the committee
meet to take up tba resolution referred
to it by the senata.
Rcqalre Farther Apologies.
It Is understood the conferences among
senatora have shown that tha South Caro
lina senatora have not been sufficiently pun
ished, and that the committee wll require
further apologlea to be submitted to ' it
In writing, -with the assurance that such
apology will ba msde to the senata, before
the aenstors hava been sufficiently purged
of tha contempt. t
Tha whole matter, as stated In tbe sen
ate report yesterday, is without precedent,
and the senate is now to make a precedent
in the matter of punishment and In re
quiring sufficient apology. The conferences
today developed the fact that the senators
regard, the matter with all the aeriousness
with which they dealt with It yesterday,
and that they intend to take such action
as will prevent, if possible, similar epi
sodes occurring In tha future.
Tillman end MeLanrla Reticent.
Neither Senators TiHrnan or McLaurln
were disposed to enter into any discussion
today regarding tha happenings In tba
senata yesterday. Senator Tillman, how
ever, did say, in reply to questions as to
whether there had been any developments
In the caae, that nothing haa occurred.
Ke said: "So far as my own. purposes
are concerned, I am simply awaiting de
velopments, and will act in accordance with
my Judgment aa' tbey unfold themselves. "

PHILIPPINE DAY IN SENATE
Even tha ' Prince's Visit Is Rot to
Interfere with Vote on
WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. In accordance
with the agreement heretofore reached, tha
senata will begin voting at 4 o'clock tomor
row on the Philippine tariff bill. All the
time of ths day's aesslon previous to that
hour will ba devoted ta speeches for and
against tbe bill, tha time to be divided
between tha supporters and tha opponents
of the bill.
The opinion has been advanced that yes
terday's episode between Senators Tillman
and McLaurln might hava the effect of
causing a postponement of tha time for
taking the vote in order to permit those
senators to speak who have desired to do
ao, but there is no probability of any
change of program. The senate regards a
unanimous consent agreement sacredly and
never allows anything to Interfere with It.
According to the present program. Prince
Henry will be a witness of a part of ths
ceremony ot tallying the vote on tha first
bill, and ha will ba allowed to observe It
either from tbe floor ot the senate or from
the gallery, as he may prefer. Probably
all ot ths members will be presented to
him, but It Is not Intended that his pres
ence shall Interfere In any way with tha
prosecution ot tbe business ot tha senate.
The Irrigation bill now holds the -place
of vantage on the senate calendar, next to
the Philippine bill, and probably will re
ceive tha attention of tbe senata after tbe
rtiilUiplii bill Is out of tha way. There la.
however, some impatience on ths part ot
tba friends of the ship subsidy bill over the
present arrangement, and . If the irriga
tion bill should consume a great deal ot
time there may be an effort to displace It.
All will depend upon tbe action of tha re
publican steering committee.
Tha bill mrklng appropriations for con
gress and the different departments of the
government will be reported to the senata
during the week and probably will be taken
up for action tha next day after It Is re
On Thursday the senate will unite with
tha house In tha ceremonies in honor of tha
memory of President McKiniey.
