In this part of the house' amendments. It
provides that this act shall not apply to
meat products that have been Inspected by
the national government. Senator Root
called attention to this and declared It
would prevent the condemnation of meat

the national Inspectors, even though they
should become putrid and unsanitary. -'

Aldrlch of Butler started the discussion
by moving that the house amendments be
hot conourred In, and Aahton moved that
they b concurred In. Senator Root de
clared there was an attempt to run ths
amendments through without consideration
and referred to the "boss lobbyist hanging
over the railing." Patrick continued the
, fight on the bouse amendments and msde
some personal allusions to Senator Aahton.
He aald the latter had always rushed to

Senator Ash ton jumped to his feet and
Interrupted Patrick In the middle of a
sentence. He began by - denouncing re
marks Intended te attack the Integrity Of
senators and declared the remark of Sen
ator Patrick was false.
"I want to say that it Is a deliberate
-lie,'! he declared,, disregarding the efforts
of lieutenant Governor Hopewell to. eall
him to order.
Patrick continued hie remarks, but re
frained from referring to Senator Ashton
ngaln. He read a statement from former
Senator W. W. Toung denouncing a catarrh
cure. He also made some pointed remarks
at certain lobbyists.
Senator Root called the attention of
Senator Ashton to ths provision of the
amendments regarding meat products, and
the latter said he did not know of the ex
istence of such amendments, and he then
consented to the matter going to a con
ference committee. He made a general
apology to the senate for what he had
previously said, but specifically stated he
would not apologfke to Senator Patrick.

headed a movement to cut out the appro

headed by Adjutant General Culver to
cripple the Grand Island Institution In
favor ot the Mllford home.
, Aldrlch declared the old soldiers pre
ferred the Mllford home, because ths Orand

Monument to Thayer.
Senator Randall this morning made a
fight to increase the J1.JE0 appropriation for
a monument to General Thayer to $6,009.
He declared the . larger amount would be
necessary to erect a shaft suitable to com
memorate the memory of one of Nebraska's
lesdlng cltlsens. He made an address In
which he reviewed the work of General
Thayer at some length. His amendment
was voted down and the bill as originally
drawn recommended to pass. '
Among the appropriation bills recom
mended to pass In the seriate was the one
appropriating $16,000 for a KebrSska ex
hibit at the Seattle exposition. The gen
eral appropriation bill was taken' up- for a
short time this morning and the amount
appropriated for repair and servant hire
at the governor's mansion was increased
from $8,000 to $4,000. The action of the
committee reducing the appropriation of
$26,000 for the ' experiment station at North
Platte to $30,000 was reversed under an
agreement that the appropriation for ths
payment of wolf bounties should be cut
down from' $40,000 to $30,000.

NEW YORK. April I Congressmsn It
T. Ralney of Illinois, after spending eight
days In the Panama canal sone, today re
turned here enthusiastic over the progress
made, but most unfavorably Impressed with
the management of the commissary de
partment. A careful investigation of the commis
sariat would, Mr. Ralney believes, bring to
light a scandal "second only to the scandal
of the Spanish-American war."
The chief trouble, he thought, lay In the
fact that meat arriving at the Isthmus well
preserved, was not met at the dock, as
was supposed, by refrigerator cars, but
Instead was leisurely transferred In a tem
perature of between SO and 90 degrees, with
the result that unless. served with a strong
garlic dressing or gravy It was unpal
atable. Mr. Ralney said that he would prove
that the lunch served to the congressional
party that recently visited the Isthmus
and "which was supposed to consist of ths
same menu served daily to canal workers
at a cost of 10 cents a man, was In reality
ordered Ave days In advance and cost $1.65
-a plate. While the commissariat was sup
posed to serve food at Cost, the stewards,
he said, were ordered to make a profit of
at least $60 to $t a week. Shoes that
could be bought In the United States for
$1 a pair were sold by the commissariat.
the congressman declared, at $8 a pair.
Beyond a poorly organised commissary
department, however, Mr. Ralney . said he
found nothing to criticise.
Work Progressing Rapidly.
"I visited the Isthmus alone," ' he said.
"I Inspected that portion of the . canal
Where work Is In progress and am well
satisfied that the work is progressing fa
vorably. The excavations are made rapidly
and the removal of dirt Is remarkable. If
the work Is continued at the rate now
made there Is no doubt that It Will be
finished In five years and the locks can
be built In the same time. The organisa
tion of the force In all departments, except
commissary, Is thorough and friendly ri
valry exists between the different gangs In
the excavation work. Over 176 mllee of
trackage Is In use and 600 trains move
over the rood dally, making It the busiest
piece of railroad In the world.
"The cdmmlssarlat Is the only ground
for complaint Over 100 men In all parts
of the Isthmus complained to me of the
food. The meat is brought down from
the United States on vessels provided with
refrigerators and arrives at the Isthmus
In splendid condition. It Is supposed to be
mot there at the docks by refrigerator cars.
The heat Is between 80 and Ot) degrees.
The meat Is" transferred very leisurely, and
this Is where the trouble arises.
Expensive Lnnc.H for Congressmen.
"Recently a congressional party of fifty
three visited the Isthmus and while there
was Served with lunch In one of the dining
halls. Ths guests were told that It was the
same lunch served from day to day to the
employes at a cost of 90 cents. I can prove
tW th.. iuncn oraered
that that lunch was ordered five days In
advance and oost $1.66 per head.
' "Again, recently some members of com
mercial clubs from Bt Ljuls and other
cities also visited the Isthmus and were
served with luncheon in- the Culebra din
ing hall. They were told that the lunch,
with tba exception of the cigars and wines,
was the same as Is served to the employes
for 10 rents a head. Why, the oyster soup
alone coet SO cents a head.
"Ths day President Roosevelt visited the
Isthmus he was served with a 'thlrty-oent'
meal. I find out that It was generally un
derstood that the president would eat at
one of the dining halls, so all were ready
for him and had ready an unusually well
served lunch.
Meats la Bad Condition.
"All meals are well served except the
