three speeches on the railroad rste bill
In the senate today. Messrs. McCreary,
llaliey and Heyburn were the orators. Mr.
McCreary announced his determination to
voto for the bill, whether amended or not,
but said that he would not object to a
reasonable provision for the review of the
Interstate Commerce commission's findings.
Mr. Bailey replied to criticisms of his
suggestion for a prohibition In ' the bill
against the suspension of the commission's
orders by courts below the supreme court.

The senate today adopted a resolution, by
Mr. Hansbrough, directing the secretary of
the Interior to furnish on the first Mon
day In December, 190, the names of per
sons and firms or corporations who have
relinquished to the United States land In
the vicinity of forest reservations. The
Information required is to include tha
names of those who have not selected lands
In lieu of those relinauished, and the sec
retary Is instructed to provide the means
for such persons taking patents to lands
to which they are entitled.
Mr. McCreary was the (lrst speaker on

was called up by Mr. Tillman at 12:

More than a dosen decisions fiom the
fourth Dallas to the li7th United States,
he said, proved the power of congress to
control tho Jurisdiction of the equity pro
ctedlngs as a ell as tho law proceedings in
the ftderal courts. ' Mr. Bailey laid espe
clul stress upon the contention that con
gress may prescribe the Jurisdiction of the.
subordinate courts, which it creates. Mr.
Ralley declared that all he was contending
for was to have the rates fixed by the com
mission stand until finully adjudicated by
the court, becausu he believed it might be
assumed that any rato established by that
body would be mure Just than the rates of
the railroad companies, the one disinter

(From a Stsft Correspondent. I
WASHINGTON. Marc h W.-t Special Tele
gram.) The bill Introdui-ed by Senator j
Hurkett creating a new federal Judicial
aismcv, to te Known as tne souinern ju
dicial district of Nebraska, following the
meander of the Platte river, was reported
favorably to the senate today by the Ju
Senator Kittredge. in his report on th"
bill. Includes a letter from Judge Munger
supporting the bill. In whli'h he states that
during 1"J court wss In session days,
during 1!M 376 days snd from January 1 to
November 1, 16. 15 days. When flrty-two
Sundays In each year are added to the
total number of days court was In session
Judge Monger bellevs some relief should
be given him. The report of the attorney
general for 1904 shows the total Judgments
rendered In civil suits In Iowa during the
fiscal year ending June JO, 194, amounted
to I72.K7. as against $557,133 In Nebraska
during the same period. Further, the re
port states that there Is a Inrge amount of
government land hi Nebraska, and from
the nature of it it will probably always re
main government land. Illegal fencing, Il
legal hnmesteading and civil and criminal
business contribute their share to the doc
ket, together with Irrigation projects and
litigation growing out of the North Plutte
project In the western part of the state. It
Is contended that the additional cost to the
government In the establishment of - this
new federal Judicial UlatrlcL will be saved
In reduced witness fees and other charges
against the government. According to pop
ulation the districts created by the bill will
divide the state as follows: North, district,
53,905; south district, 6o2.39t.

More Pension for Widows.
Representative Hinshaw appeared befor
the Invalid pensions committee In behalf
of his bill to pension widows of civil war
soldiers uniformly at $12 per month, with
some exception as to large incomes. Mr.
Hinshaw would not haaard a guess as to
the disposition the committee will make of
his bill, but he hopes for a favorable re
port. . '..
Pollard Opposes Free Needs.
Congressman Pollard is opposed to the
free distribution of seeds on the part of the
government and will vote o sustain the
agricultural committee's recommendation
that the govcrnnvM discontinue the prac
tice f issuing sctds. ; Mr. Pollard believes
In . spending. tU ;moie- which, it annually
costs the government. for seeds in improvr
Ing the productive quality of corn, wheat,
oats and other,, coreals. He believes the
money spent for free seeds could be spent
with larger results In scientific experimen
tation, with, the object of Improving the
general agricultural conditions.
Cash for Forest Experiments.
' Senator Burkett Is much Interested in
the nursery and tr.ee planting operations
how being carried on In the Dismal river
forest reserve near Halsey, Neb. The ex
periments In tree growing In the sandhill
country, now being conducted by the
bureau of forestry, are producing splendid
results, and In order tnat these experi
ments may be still further continued Sena
tor Burkett today Introduced an amend
ment to the agricultural appropriation bill
providing for the expending of 115,000 for
the extension of experimental forest plant
ing on the forest reserves In Nebraska.
Test of Liquor Law.
Congressman Kennedy presented today
in the supreme court a motion for leave
to Ale an application for habeas corpus on
behalf of James Lincoln, now connned-ln
the Douglas county Jail. Lincoln is an al
lottee of land granted to him on the Win
nebago reservation, in Thurston county.
He was indicted in the United States dis
trict court at Omaha . for Introducing
liquor Into the reservation, and was con
victed and sentenced., to the Douglas
county Jail for sixty days and fined $100
and costs. It is asserted by attorneys for
Lincoln that the conviction is lllegul and
void, and that habeas co.pus proceedings
Is the direct method of testing the ques
tion. Accompanying the papers is a stip
ulation of facta signed by District Attor
ney Goss on behalf of the government and
by attorneys for the defendant. Should the
court grant leave to file the application, at.
torneys for Lincoln will come to Washing
ton to argue It, as Mr. Kennedy is not an
attorney in the case. He apptured simply
as a matter of form and out of courtesy
to W. 8. Summers. The court will not be
in session again until April 2. The appli
cation fchows that the proceedings aro on
the suggestion of Judge Muugrr.
