CONFER WITH PRESIDENT
Attorney General Moody and OonumBsionar
Garfield Talk Over Packers Decision.
QUESTION OF APPEAL IS NOT SETTLED
Bill 'ow Pending; Before Cnnsjress
May Give Opportunity to Hare
Rating; of Jsdge Hum
WASHINGTON, March 22. President
Roosevelt had an extended conference today
with General Attorney Moody, Secretary
Taft and James A. Garfield, commissioner
of corporations, concerning the adverse de
cision rendered in Chicago yesterday by
Judge Humphrey In tiie beef packers' case.
No details of the conference were obtain
able at the White House, but It Is certain
that Attorney General Moody proposes to
look carefully Into tho law bearing upon
the- matter with a view of ascertaining
whether an appeal from the decision of
Judge Humphrey by the' government will
Ho. The'- decision relieving the Individual
officials of tho packers' corporations from
prosecution is a serious obstacle to the
The prosecution of the corporations will
continue, of course, but It .was the desire
of the government to place the responsi
bility fur violations oi the law upon offi
cials of the corporations where they are
found to be guilty ot such violations. . In
whatever efforts may be made by the at
torney general and other officials of the
Department of Justice to secure an appeal
from the decision of Judge Humphrey this
point will be kept to tht front. . It could
not be decided at the conference today
whether an appeal from the decision would
lie, but that question will be gone over
very carefully and If In the opinion of the
law officers of the government a founda
tion for an uppeul cun be made it will be
yvt Law Pending.
Attorney General Moody declined to .dis
cuss the merits of Judge Humphrey's de
cision. It was. he said, of Very great Im
portance not only as affecting tills particu
lar case, but as laying down a principle
which. If sustained, must have a very. seri
ous effect upon all future prosecutions by
the government for violations of the anti
trust and Interstate commerce laws. It Is
poaslble that the government has n right
of appeal under existing law, but In any
event a bill is now before congress which
provides a remedy In such cases. It pro
vides that in all criminal prosecutions the
I'nltcd States shall have the same right
of review by writ of error that is given to
the defendant, including the right to a
bill of exceptions.
It also provides that the act shall take
effect at and utter Its po&aage and shall
apply to cases pending. This bill, which
has been favorably reported by the house
Judiciary committee, embodies the recom
mendations made by Attorney General
Moody In hi last annual report to congress.

words and votes. It was developed at once,
however, that there were votes enough to
carry out tho program of the leaders.
Then followed forty minutes of fiery
speeches, Borne of which provoked the
amusement of the large attendance of mem
bers and the crowded galleries. Then came
the final vote on the adoption of the rule,
which 175 members approved and 15 op
posed. The features of the debate were remarks
by J. .tdam Bede of Minnesota, during
which he told of his approval of the presi
dent, particularly because he had given
his daughter in marriage to a member of
the house of representatives, and not to a
degenerate prince, or to a representative
of "that house of detention at the other
end Of the capitol."
Mr. Dalzell of Pennsylvania championed
the special rule, and Mr. Williams, the
minority leader, suggested that republi
cans would need the special prayer of tho
chaplain after they had made their record
on statehood. Several other short speeches
Mr. Dalsell, as soon as the rule had been
read, demanded ' the previous question,
which, If ordered, carried with It forty min
utes' debate, to be divided equally between
the friends and opponents of the rule. On
a rising vote H9 voted tar the' previous
question' nttd 124 ftgalnst.
On demand of Mr. Williams, minority
leader, a roll-call was ordered.
The roll call resulted In ordering tj1(.
previous question, the vote being 171 to
140. Mr. Dalzell was recognised for twenty
minutes and began an explanation of the
reason for the special rile.
By a vote of 176 to 15 the house adopted
the statehood rule and the speaker ap
pointed Hamilton (Mich.). Brick (Ind.) and
Moon tTenn.) conferrees.
The republicans who voted with the dem
ocrats against ordering the. previous ques

Bede, Beidler, Itonynge, Brown, Calder

In opposition Mr. Williams, the democratic
floor leader, pointed out that a vote to
adopt the special rule was a vote against
concurrence with the senate amendments.
Ordinarily "under the rules of the house a
motion in concur would be In order.
"The u Liu I course of procedure this

MIXED POLICE AT ALL PORTS
Settlement for Moroccan Question Said to
Come, .tram President. Eooeetelt
PROPOSITION NOT LIKED BY FRANCE
Probable Friction Between French
and ftpanlah officers I.
the Prlnrlpal Objec
tion. PARle?, "'March 2S. The suggestion of a
mixed police at all ports. Including Cas
Blanc, on which the hopes of en eventual
solution of' the Moroccan difficulty are
founded, emanated from President Toose
velt. according to the Temps' Algeclras
jorrespondent, who says:
Instead of giving ot France the sole con
trol of a eertsln ntimlier of ports and to
Spain like control of an equal number of
ports. It Is Suggested to appoint an equal
number of French and Spanish officers at
each port. Rivalry or the acquisition of
special spheres of influence, It Is U' ged.
would thus be avoided. The siigges'l'n Is
from President Roosevelt, who considers
that such a combination Is most conform
able to the mindples laid down bv the
conference. Tho Intention of this proposed
solution may be excellent, but It Is not
practical and Is full of danger.
Commenting on this dispatch, the Temps
gives President Roosevelt full credit for a
desire to preserve the purely Franco:8pan
Ish character of the police mandate and
exclude therefrom such a restrictive combi
nation as the proposal to place Cas Blanca
under a third power, but points out that
It Is a proposition which would appear to
appeal to the conference no more than the
Casa Blanca schema and will not be accept
able to either France or Stmln. Personal
differences between' French and Spanish
officer, the paper says, would undermine
the effective character of the police organi
sation and leave the Moroccan government
an opening to take advantage of the petty
personal rivalries of the onlears In order
to continue the 'condition of anarchy.
Whit Mar Present Proposition.
ALGECLRAS, Spain, March 22.-Herr von
Radowitg, ihe senior German representative
at the conference on Moroccan reforms,
was slightly Indisposed today, and as a re
sult the meeting of the delegates which
was to have been held today was post
poned until Saturday nect, when the new
Austrian: police proposition will lie pre
Ambassador White, Sir Arthur Nicholson
and Count Welserschelmb, respectively the
American, British and Austrian delegates,
were In conference all day, but with what
results has not been made known, the
gentlemen named maintaining the strictest
reserve. There is a decided Impression,
however, that It was satisfactory and con
fidence la felt that the way Is being paved
for an early agreement. It is understood
that the fresh Austrian proposals formed
the subject of 'dlsoussion, and although the
nature of the proposals has not been offi
cially stated. It la believed they contained
a revised suggestion for a mixed police at
all Moroocan ports, Including, Casa Blanca.
Thus. Instead of French officials controll
ing four ports and the Spaniards four
others an equal number of French and
Spanlah officers will act together at each
port. Confidence- generally reigns that a
solution- will he attained along these lines.
It Is uncertain who will take' the Initia
tive In placing the scheme before the con
ference. Mr. White Is actively furthering
the suggestion, but It Is possible the neces
sity of his direct Interference before the
conference may itiot arlsV. -
