KOt TIM': PROCEEDINGS OF SENATES
Favored In Senate,
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, March l.-(Bpeelal.) The son
Hat! recommended for passage the Lincoln
charter bill and a house bill drafted to
amend the charter of cities of the second
class of from 5,000 population to 25,000. At
tho same time Senator Miller, who had
pushed hla own charter bill providing a
commission form of government for Lin
coln, introduced "by request" the charter
bill prepared by Mayor Brown of Lincoln.
The committee of the whole waa obliged
to take notice of the charter bill for small
cities, H. R. 129, by Leliligh of Otoe, be
cause Senator Howell of Douglas made a
strong plea for it on the ground it was
necessary to rush it through to prevent tho
city council of Nebraska City from grant,
lng a renewal of a franchise to the water
j company 1 nthat city without sumblttlng
It to a vote of the people. Senator Howell
said It was reprehensible for a corporation
to get a foothold In a small city and the
legislature should see to It that whatever
possible to be done was done to help out
the small city dwellers. , .
Randall of Madison objected to the char
ter in one particular because It prohibited
a person' or corporation outside the city
from contracting with the city for power
or light, but the senate overruled the ob
jection recommending the emasure for
third rending and later passing the bill on
The Lincoln charter bill, 8. F. 260. by Mil
ler of . Lancaster, was :TeWimodd 'for

and S. F. 263, to provide that where a sani
tary dlBtrict for the purpose pf straighten
ing a stream, exists within the boundaries
of a city, the council of the city shall be
the trustees thereof. These, Were recom
mended to pass.
The senate indefinitely postponed the bill
by Henry of Colfax, raising the salaries
of county superintendents and one by
Miller of Lancaater, giving the regents the
power to establish new departments at the
State university, the latter because a house
bill similar in every particular is already
in the senate having passed the lower
The committee of the whole took up
8. F. 28 by Fuller of Seward, a blU. that
will prevent the State Board of Equaliza
tion from raising or lowering the total
valuations of the state as has been per
mitted under the present revenue law. The
discussion of this, question raised a. number
of political Issues and the senators en
gaged in a spirited controversy, finally
recommending the bill for passage by a
strict party vote of 17 to 10.
The senate passed the following bills:

WASHINGTON, March l.-Transactlng

that the present congress Is drawing to a
In his endeavor to maintain a semblance
of order the speaker was constantly
pounding his gavel at members and ad
monishing members to cease conversation.
After two hours of stormy debate the
so-called Appalachian and White mountain
forest reserve bill, amended 6 as to apply
Its provisions to all states, was passed by
a narrow majority of ten. Measures of this
character had been before the house in
one shapn or another for many years and
today's Action witnessed the partial con
summation of a policy In connection with
the consummation of the forests unceas
ingly pressed by, it advocates. By the
terms of the bill the national forest reser
vation commission la created for the pur
pose of acquiring by purchase or condemna
tion the lands needed to promote or in
protect the navigability of streams on
whose watershed they lie. The house bill
Is a substitute for that of the senate and
the measure will now go to conference.
The final conference- reports on tho army,
naval and fortifications appropriation bills
were referred to and the measures will
now go to the president for signature. In
addition to this a vast amount of miscel
laneous business was disposed of. A reso
lution designed as a concession to the so
called Insurgents amending the rules s
as to provide one day each week for a call
of committees gave rise to Immediate dis
cussion and waa adopted by a narrow mar
gin of six, the vote standing 168 to It??.
After a short discussion the house almost
unanimously insisted on Its disagreement
with the senate on the amendment to the
legislative, executive and judicial appropri

went back to conference.

Hopelessly at Sea
on Steel Merger
Disagreement Will Be Reported on
Resolution for Investigation at
This Morning's Meeting.
WASHINGTON. March 1. Th aenat
committee on judiciary toda voted to
report a disagreement on the resolution
providing for an lavaaragatlon of the ab
sorption ot th Tennessee Coal and Iron
company by th United States Steel corpor
ation. The decision, not to submit either of the
reports of the sub-committee was reached
after a great deal of discussion. Finally
Senator Fulton moved that a disagreement
be reported and that each senator should
should have the Individual right reserved
to him to make such expression of views
to the senate as he desired.
This motion waa adopted by a vote of
seven to five, the affirmative vote being
Messrs Clark of Wyoming, Depew, Foraker,
Dillingham, Knox, Fulton and Clarke of
Arkansas, and the negative votes were
Nelson, Kittredge, Culberson, Overman and
Rayner. Senator Bacon waa not preaent.
No vote waa taken by the committee on
either side of the reports of the sub-committee.
Mr. Foraker suggested that the
committee should report to the senate that
the president Wan not authorised by law
to permit the merger, such report being
In direct response to the Inquiry of the
senate. Mr. Foraker finally gave way to
the suggestion of Mr. Fulton. The views of
Mr. Bacon were expressed In a letter to
the committee and it is expected that
later he will amplify these and present
them to the senate.
Any views submitted to the senate will
be considered "Individual" reports, not
having the sanction of the committee.
This In generally regarded a a com
promise, aa a number of senator had
drafted a report declaring the merger to
be In violation of the Sherman anti-trust
law, and rebuking President Roosevelt for
his part In the transactiona, while others
declared it was not the function of the
committee to pass upon these questions.
