I'ltalmoai Agreement to Tako Action

Afternoon, February 1.
at 6 O'clock.
i AHINOTON Fob. e. The senate was
trotted -to a distinct sensation today by
.dr. Patterson idem., Colo.), wno followed
up hU letliemcnt of ' last Saturday from
inc democratic caucus by Introducing In
the senate a resolution In effect declaring
i lie urtiona of tne cuueus to have been
contrary to tiie constitution of the United
Mutes. Apparently the senator's action
waft nnexp-cted on the part of a majority
of the seiiHtors and they listened atten
tively an the reading of the rather lung
preamble progressed, evidently not a littlo
concerned as to what should como next.
Mr. Patterson made no effort to secure
me privilege of discussing tho resolution
today,' but gave notice that he would . ad
dress the senate uKn it tomorrow, or
tho Urat available day afterwards. It Is
expected that the democrats generally will
resist the adoption of the resolution and
that the icpuullcan senutors will sustain
Mr. 1'attcrson's contention.
Aside from the effect on Mr. Patterson's
political future, the resolution raises a
question as to the right for animated dis
cussion' and wide margin for differences
of opinion. In all probability several days
will elapse before the question Is settled.
Before Mr. l'atterson's matter came up
Mr. Bucon had given sfotlce of a speech
for tomorrow, so it la probably that Mr.
Patterson' spoeoh will be postponed until
.Mr. Calllngcr succeeded during the day
ln the fixing of a date for voting on the
shipping bill, the hour named being
Wednesday, the 14th lust., al 6 p. m.
Several bills were passed during the day
and Mr Teller made a speech In opposi
tion to the shipping bill.
Mr. Foraker announced that he had no
Intention of attempting to delay action on
the statehood bill.
Mr. Patterson's Resolution.'
Mr. Patterson caused a sensation by In
troducing and' having read the following
Whereas, The constitution of the United
Hlates provides that the senate of the
United b la tea shall be composed of two sen-
ators from each slate, chosen by the legla
lulorl thereof, and that uacii senator auaU
W hereto. Imuih senator before assuming
tlie duties of his ottlce is required nolenimy
to swear or affirm that he will support and
defend the constitution of the Cnited States
and that be will faithfully discharge the
duties of the ottloe upon wnlch he Is about
to enter; and.
Whereas. The following resolutions were
nreiiented and adopted by more tnan two
thirds of the renaiora present at the demo
cratic caucus tnere was inserted uie reso
lutions adopted by the democratic caucus);
Whereas, The appurcnt purpose of said
resolutions and actions was Improperly to
induce or coerce democratic senators who
uilglu bellnve that the best Interests of the
country required the ratification of said
treaty, and because thereof held It to be
their duty to vote for Ua ratification, and
Into disregarding that part of their oaths
In which they declared that they would

of tho Count and Countess do Castellane
express little hope, that any adjustment of
their differences will be brought abuut, but i
as divorce proceedings under the French ,
law are very lengthy, new developments
may occur before the case comes up for

Count St. Rene Talllandler. who was the
French minister at Fex during the Fiunco-
German crisis last summer. The count had
talks with Ambassador White and other
delegates. His presence Is considered to
relate to the private dixcusstons going on
between tho delegates on the main Franco-

the outlook continues hopeful, but they ad

powers are not yet resulting in securing
an exact baxls for accord.
BERLIN, Feb. 5. Germany's attitude to
ward the proposition to place tho control
of the Slorocoan police In the hands of
France and Spain is one of firm opposition,
since tho arrangement would, according to
the German view, amount practically to
give France authority over the police, which
Germany hitherto has steadily resisted.

CHICAGO. Feb. S But one witness was
on the stand today In the packers' case.
This was C M. McFarlanc, office manager
for Morris & Co. His evidence related to
the manner In which the agents of the gov
ernment were given Information In the
case of Morris & Co. The cross-examination
by District Attorney Morrison was ex
ceedingly sharp. Just before the adjourn
ment of court today the district attorney
put some leading westlon- regarding the
wnrklng of the Oppenhelmer company.

During tho noon recess of court Attorney j
General Moody said In reply to questions:
"I notice that the attorneys for the
packers have produced evidence to the ef
fect that Commissioner Garfield said that
he would not give to the Department of
Justice the information he secured from

Moody AaaUta District Attorney.
The cross-examination of Mr. McFarlane
by District Attorney Morrison related en-
tirely to the facts shown In the books and
what could be shown by them. Frequently
tho attorneys for the packers strenuously
objected to the questions asked by the dls-
trlct attorney, saying that he was trying to
forco from the witness tacts bearing on the
main Issue of the case.
"Waa there anything in those hooks to
show that there was a combination between
the packers?" asked the district attorney.

tlon was sustained Dy me courc

"Did you ever hear Mr. Morris say that

causo there was something In them that
might Incriminate him?"
"1 think noL"
"Do your hooks show all of the profits?"
I "Do they show the dividends paid by the
I Onnenheimer Mnnufncturinc comnanv?"
I The witness produced a book allowing an
account for more than H.tiOO. which amount
he declared to be a dividend from the Op- i
i perhelmer company. j

! "I want to show thnt the Item on
book relative to these casings Is not
reel, and that the statements of this
ness regarding them are not true."
"That is not so," said the witness.
"Walt a moment, don't get excited,"
piled the district attorney.
"Ths government Is doing something here
that is a violation of the law," said Attor
ney Hynes, who is In court for the packers.

were on their feet at this Juncture, and
all of them tried tn talk to the court at

talked earnestly with the dlstrirt attor
ney, making suggestions us to the method
"Did you not aay in your opening statu
ment that these men had not been sworn
and could not he prosecuted for perjury?"
asked the court.
"Ves. but that has nothing to do with
this matter," replied the district attorney.
"1 have Ihe right to teat the credibility of
these books, ami of this witness."
"Don't you want to elicit from this wit
ness an answer to the effect that the Op-
penhelmer company was an illegal com-
binatlon? asked Judge Humphrey.
"No, sir. We have all the Information
on that we need," replied the district at
torney. "We do not have to depend on
this evidence for the other case."
Tho i-ourt then ruled against the govern
ment, and ordered the questions regarding

RURAL HEADQUARTERS MOVE
Change in Poitoffice Sjetem
Difiiion to Eaneae City.
ACTION TAKEN ON .CORE OF ECQNCMY
Office of Unperlnteuflent la Abolished
nnd Field Anents Report to Chief
of Inspectors of the l'ost
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Feb. a. (Special Tele
gram.) As has been anticipated the rurl
free delivery division headquarters at
Omaha is marked for a change In July,
the beglnntng of the next fiscal year. Ever
since the change made In transferring the
rural free delivery service from the fourth
assistant postmaster general to the first
assistant postmaster general and placing
all general agents under the Inspector In
charge there has been more or less Inquiry
as to where the. division agents would land.
In the transfer of division headquarters in
the creation of the Omaha division there
was considerable criticism on account of
Omnha succeeding over Kansas City. Post
master General Cortelyou found that In
the transfer he was saving the government
some money In locating the division head
quarters at Omaha. Now the new change
is to be made and the division headquarters
will terminate In July, according to the
following letter which Senator Millard to
day'recelved from Postmaster General Cor
telyou: Referring to your letter of recent date.
making inquiry as to discontinuance of di
vision headquarters, rural free delivery
service, at Omaha, I have to say that on
December 1, by the reorganization of the
department, rural ugents were assigned to
the division of inspectors, and it Is the In
tention to consolidate the two forces at an
early date. After July 1 next It Is expected
thnt all of the rural agents will become
postottice inspectors " and will report dl-r.-ctly
to tho inspectors In charge of di
visions. This will not make any difference
in the number of agents assigned to each
state or the manner of handling tho work.
The postofhee Inspectors who now work In
the stute of Nebraska will report to tho
Inspector In charge at Kansus City. The
consolidation of the Omaha headquarters
with that of Kansas City will be In the
Interest of economy, and us tho division
headquarters In connected with the Held
service largely by use of the malls the lo
cation of the headquarters can make but
little difference. In the new arrangement
