For several hours today Mr. Patterson of
Colorado discussed the Philippines question,
concluding the speech which he began yes
terday. After reviewing and commenting
on the general Philippines question, be at
tacked the pending till, particularly He
provisions regarding the holding of lands.
He declared that It was monstrous and
never should be enacted Into law. He urged
that the Filipinos be granted their Inde
pendence and drew4 an eloquent Word pic
ture of the turning over to the Filipinos
by the United States of the Islands when
they had established a government.
Army Appropriation Bill.
Early In the session a committee was ap
pointed by the senate to confer with a like
committee of the houae about the disagree
ment wblch hae arisen between the two
houaea as to the army appropriation bin.
Mr. Burrows, chairman of the senate com
mittee on privileges and electlone, reported
that the committee was , opposed to the
house resolution providing for the election
of senators by the people; that a majority
of the committee was in favor of the Depew
amendment, providing that the election of
senators In all states shall be uniform and
congress shall have power to enforce 'tne
amendment, and finally, that the majority
of the committee waa opposed to the resolu
tion as reported.
Mr. Burrows said that the committee by
a majority vole had refused to report the
resolution as amended to the senate, either
favorably or adversely. He said the com
mittee had not directed him to report the
resolution to the senate either favorably
Mr. Wellington of Maryland moved- to
discharge the committee from further con
sideration of the resolution. This motion
went over at the suggestion of Mr. Hoar.
A resolution offered by Mr. Hoar yester
day requesting the president to Inform the
senate whether there la any law which
would prevent any Filipino, not under ar
rest, from coming to the United States and
stating his views, or desires, as to hla coun
try, to the president ,or to either branch
of congress, was adopted.
Patterson Resnmee Hla gpeech.
Consideration was then resumed of the
Philippine government bill, Mr. Patterson
continuing his speech in opposition to the
administration 'a policy In the .Philippines.
Mr. Patterson said he had changed, his
opinion and ha declared that he, would
rather have the honor of baring taken
the position of tbe senior senator from
Massachusette (Mr. Hoar) upon thla Phil-
Ipptne question I ban.' to havetie c
of glory .that'' lf 'vouchsafed t to

Mr. Spooner insisted that he had not
departed from his -position, al stated in
his quoted speech, In the. slightest degree,
while Mn' Patterson' had gone far afield
from the editorial .he had written.

error and had" admitted' It. . Other sena

Discussing the pending Dill Mr. Patter-
sen maintained- that uider ' ltr corporations
could bold alrnoat any amount of land
Three tor four, individuals could, organize
themselves into a bond red different cor
porations, he maintained, and. thus acquire
aa unlimited amount of land. i
He urged the' enactment of the bill pre
sented by the . minority, . whjch, he said,
favored . giving to lfee Filipinos their lnde
pendence under" such restrictions' as would
give them a stable government and perma
nent peace. ' He paid a high tribute' to the
Filipinos at a ;Chrtattan people and he aa
aerted that there never '-was a Christian

that the policy of the government wae re

In conclusion, Mf. Patterso drew a vivid
word picture 'of the day,, which be hoped
would come when Governor Taftr or Admiral
Dewey, or 6era - Miles, or some other
official representing the United States would
urn over the Philippine island to tbe Fili
pino government, a ceremony such ae re.
cently had occurred in Cuba. .
In the course of a colloquy between Mr.
Lodge and Mr. Dnbola at the conclusion of
Mr. Patterson's speech. It waa developed
that four speeches yet remained to be de
llrered in the general debate by Mr,
Spooner, Mr. Bacon, Mr. Clay and Mr. Car
mack. Mr. Dubois suggested that the mi
nority, so far aa he knew, would be glad
to vote next Tueaday. Thl statement led
to a discussion as to holding a session of
the senate on Memorial day. Mr. Oalllnger
of New Hampshire protested against a ses
sion on that day.
Mr. Lodge gave notice that en Thursdsy
next he would ask that a time for a vote
on the bill be fixed.

WASHINGTON. May 27. (Special Tele
gram.) The conference committee of the
two house . having in charge the public
building bill finally agreed tonight upon
all items In controversy and the confer.
ence report will be submitted to the two
The house -conferee receded on the sen
ate amendment appropriating 245,000 ad
ditional for the Omaha pottofflce and cue
torn house, and as there were no other
matters in dispute affecting Nebraska, Item
for that state will be reported a follows:
Three hundred thousand dollar for Lin
coln, 115,000 for Omaha, $125,000 tor Hast
ings and $100,000 for Norfolk.
A number of change will be reported In
Iowa Item, there being stubborn resist
ance on the part Of the house sgalnat any
material reduction in appropriation made
for Iowa town by the houae bill. Repre
sentative Connor of the Tenth dlstrlot, a
member of the committee on publto build
ings and grounds, has been persistent In hi
effort to get tbe eenate to recede from It
ametfdment te the bill reducing the appro
priation for Boone and a a retult of hla
persistence the senate finally agreed to
tho bouse provision and restored the Boone
appropriation vf $100,004.
De Motaes Gets a Cat.
As the eenate receded from It amend
ment cutting tii appropriation for Boone
they could do no less than recede from
their amendment cutting down the appro
priation for Marsballtown and they restored
the appropriation for that city to $83,000, a
passed by tbe house. In view of the re
cessions of the senate conferees for Boone
and Marsballtown it became necessary for
the house committee to do a little bit of
receding, and after a great deal of discus
sion it was decided to limit the cost of the
site for the new poBtofflce at De Molnea
to $150,000, the house bill having given De
Moines $125,000 and the eenate $160,000.
As a compromise both conference commit
tees agreed that $160,000 would about cover
the situation so, far as the capital of the
Hawkeye atate Is concerned.
Yankton, S. D., will get $7,000 for a site
the senate having agreed to knock off $500
from the amount appropriated by Its bill.
