The principal flght today over the agri
cultural bill took place on the Beverldgo
amendment requiring the packers to pay
the cost of administering the meat Inspec
tion law. This amendment was defeated
on a point of order. Mr. Beverldge secured
the adoption of an amendment which re
quires the date of canning and Inspection
to appear on the label of the can contain
ing meat products.
The postofllce bill was passed In an hour
and fifteen minutes. Amendments adding
tl.S8R.75! for the extension of the pneumatic
mall service and requiring postal cars to
be lightrd with electricity were adopted.
Mr. Lodge secured the passage of the
Philippine agricultural bank bill. An
amendment offered by Senator Culberson,
declaring- the Intention of the United
States to abandon the Islands aa soon as
a stable Independent government ahould be
ertnbllshed, was defeated.
The senate also passed a bill granting a

When the agricultural bill was taken
up the Fulton amendment providing
that no forest reserves shall hereafter be
created or enlarged without an act of con
gress In the states of Oregon, Washington,
Idaho, Montana. Colorado and Wyoming
was adopted without debate. The amend
ment adding $1,000,000 for the Improvements
In forest reserves was also adopted with
Senator Beverldge offered an amendment
providing that hereafter the date of Inspec
tion and canning must be placed on the
label of meat product. This was agreed
to without discussion. Mr. Bceertdge then
offered his amendment placing the cost of
meat Inspection on the packers and took
the floor to address the senate on Its ne
cessity. Mr. Warren gave notice that at
the proper time he shouM mnke a point
of order against this amendment. Mr.
Beverldge made the point that the only op
position to his amendment came from the
packers and that they, being the bene
ficiaries of the act, should be compelled
to pay the cost.
Interjecting an endorsement of the
amendment Senator Galllnger remarked
that he hoped that If Mr. Beverldge was
defeated today on a point of order he
would bring the question before the sen
ate In a special bill early In the next con
gress. "And we will fight this matter to
the finish and see whether the American
people are to be taxed -with an expense
which belongs to the packers."
The Beverldge amendment placing the
cost of meat Inspection on the packors was
ruled out on a point of order. The vice
president remarked that there was not a
senator present who would not have to
concede that It was aa "general legisla
tion" obnoxious to the rules of the senate.
The vice president Invited an appeal from
his decision, but none was made.
An amendment was agreed to at the sug
gestion of Mr. Heyburn which will permit
settlers on public lands In Irrigation areas
to pay up and receive title to their lands
after residence of five years without wait
ing the present prescribed time, which Is
ten years. The bill was then passed.

By a vote of 43 to 14 the senate today
passed the Lodge agricultural Philippine
bank bill. The senate first laid on the table
an amendment by Mr. Culberson, disclaim
ing any Intention on the part of the United
States to remain permanently In the Phil
ippines, but asserting that whenever a
stable. Independent government shall be
established, the United States will with
draw. The amendment la Identical In lan
guage with a resolution presented In Feb
ruary, 1809, by Mr. Bacon. At that time
there was a tie vote. on the proposition,
and It was defeated by the vice president
casting his vote In the negative.
Mr. McCreary pressed the Philippine tariff
bill as an amendment to the bank bill, but
on motion of Mr. Lodge It was laid on the
table by a vote of 47 to 11.
The Philippine bank bill was amended at
the suggestion of Mr. Culberson by a re
quirement that tike banlfmay not hold
lands which it has acquired on mortgage
foreclosure longer than ten years.

The bill was amended to provide for the

The ratification of the treaty follows a
a debate In executive session, during which
Mr. Bacon of Oeorgla condemned the

treaty authorised, the United States to
examine Into the debts and pay what was
Justly due. The pending treaty, said Mr.
Bacon, provides for the scaling down of
the Dominican debts to about 50 per cent
of their face value, with the exception of
the claim of the San Domingo Improve

capitalists, which Is to receive about VO
per cent of the face value. These capital
ists, said Mr. Bacon, have uaed tnls gov
ernment as a catspaw. He expressed the
belief that a large part of the iebta were
fraudulent and that In providing for the
payment, without opportunity to adjust
the claims, the United States Is aiding
graft and participating in an unjust bur
den on the republic.
Mr. Bacon suggested the senate commit
tee on foreign relations had amended the
former treaty by Inaerttng a new article
which declared that the United States
should not be responsible for any act cf
omission or commission in adjusting the
Dominican debt, and that the treaty should
not be regarded as a precedent. The pres
ent treaty. Mr. Bacon said, carefully elim
inates this provision, which he thought
was done with the Idea that the United

SHIP SUBSIDY BILL. IX HOI SE
Aareemeat to Take Flaal Vote oa
Sahstltote Friday Afternoon.
WASHINGTON. Feb. . Ship subsidy se
cured a marked Impetus today In the house,
which Just before adjournment adopted a
rula that will probably Insure the passage
by the house of the Llttauer substitute for
the senate bill and reault before the final
adjournment In positive legislation.
The rule was reported by Mr. Dalxell In
the shape of a resolution providing that
the compromise bill shall be considered
with debate limited to five hours and that
the final vote shall be taken not later than
next Friday afternoon at $ o'clock. Tho
rule was adopted by a vote of 168 to 122,
twenty-four republicans voting with the
democrats In opposition to the rule.
The rule was agTeed upon unexpectedly
by the rules committee at a meeting held
after the visit of Secretary Root to the
capltol and It was very generally under
stood that the administration was respon
sible for the committee's action.
The conference report on the Indian ap
propriation bill was adopted, as was the
conference report on the bill providing for
the allotment and distribution of Indian
Mr. Williams, minority leader, opposed
the rule. Democracy, he said, was against
this measure. It was In the Interest of the
rich and against the poor; of those who
had against those who had not.
Mr. Williams thought It worse than the
tariff, because the latter professes a virtue,
while this was a naked special privilege,
saying. "It Is class legislation, naked, un
blushing, running wild."
Mr. Hlnshaw of Nebraska thought the
bill would tend to decrease the shipping
Industries of the country, and he was
opnosed to both rule and bill.
Mr. Grosvenor closed the debate on the
rule. He said the bill. If passed, will not
take a single dollar out of the treasury of
the United States, but rather add to the
profits, because It would enlarge the foreign
mall service. He continued:
"Some men have been going about here
telling the people that this bill will not
produce the building of a single ship. Let
me tell you that these contracts cannot
be awarded until there is proof that there
are at least twenty-seven ships built abso
lutely from the keel up and that they are
approved by the Navy depftment aa capa
ble of traveling sixteen knots an hour In
continuous service, built In American ship
yards and manned by American sailors.
Tbts will drive out of the contract every
ship of the Harrlman line. There Is not
one ship of the Harrlman line or one ship
of the Jim Hill line that can go ten knots
an hour under any pressure that can be
put upon it. Bo we simply propose to
extend our mall service to South America
and the orient."
The resolution, as reported from the
committee on rules, was adopted, yeas 168,
nays 122. Twenty-four republicans voted
with the democrats In opposition to the
rule, as follows:
Burton, Ohio; Campbell, Kansas; Chap

counsel for Webb and the state was rep
resented by County Attorney Shipp. The
defense demanded a change of Judge and

the bench In place of Judge Carpenter. Tha

minutes when a verdict of acquittal was
agreed upon. The case of the State against

received last December, and Is now In
