MEMPHIS, Tenn.. May iT.-After three
dsya devoted almost exclusively to the
appeal of the suspended division, composed
of members of the Chicago Great Western
system, the convention of the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers late today voted
to sustain the suspension, but after some
further debate It was agreed that If the
representatives of the division who were
present would acknowledge their errors
and request the restoration of the charter
It would be granted and the members re
Instated In the. order. This action followed
and the charter was ordered restored.
The members and ' division were ordered
suspended about .three years ago for vio
lation of a law of the order relative to
the employment of engineers on an ac
quired road of the Chicago Great Western
system and the appeal was instituted at the
convention held at ls Angeles in 1SD4.

After the address of the lower house in
reply to the speech from the throne was
adopted the house adjourned aubject to the
call of the president. '
After the .reading of the final draft, M.

for a unanimous rote.- Count Hayden
stated that he and his friends, though ap
proving of the . address Jn general, were un
able to vote for certain details and would

ing the long three days of debate the ex

attacks against the ''mllflness" of the var
ious paragraphs only to break agalnat the
firmness of the restraint of the chiefs of
the party. When the discussion had been
finished the deputies, with the exhortationa
of the country to speedy action ringing in

though they had been, already in session
fourteen hours, took a recess until 2 o'clock

As if running a race to see which would
be the first to present to Kmperor Nlcholaa
a demand for amnesty, the council of the
empire also was in session well into the
early morning hours discussing Its address
Jn reply to the speech from the throne.
This document, which If far simpler and
more conservative than that of the lower
h cruse, proposes an amnesty which doea not
Include those who ara coupled with political
offenses, murder or violation of property
rights In other words, political aasaiwlns
or participants In agrarian excesses.

address, was altered aV the last moment by

erltlcrsms "of lndeflnHfies In the express
"full political amnesty , substituted . am

Justice for-lhe Army.
The commission also accepted a new
clause to meet the wishes of discontented
In the army and navy, asking the emperor
to revise the conditions of the service On
the basis of right and -Justice.
The last feature of the debate was an at
tempt by Prof. Kavalevsky to Introduce a
declaration in favor of peace and Pan-
