Committee Makes a Report of the Result of
Their Labors.
Mr. Hill Doubts the Propriety of
Trying to Find Out Whether News
paper Men Can Tell the Truth The
Hawaiian Question Looms Up
Again Amendments Offered to the
Tariff Bill.
Wasiiinoton, May 29.
THE morning hour (or rather half
hour) in tho senate today was
consumed in au attempt to ob
tain aetion on the Hawaiian
resolution of Mr. Turpi (Dem., Ind.),
reported some months ago hy the com
mittee on foreign relations. Amend
ments to it were offered by Mr. Peffer
(Pop.. Kan.) and Mr. Vest (Dein., Mo.).
Mr. Vest's amendment declared iu
favor of letting the people of the Sand
wich islands choose their own form of
government and line of policy was laid
on the table by a vote of 38 to 18.
The tariff bill was taken up at 10 30
and a motion was made by Mr. Peffer
to lay it aside tomporarily and to re
sume consideration of the Hawaiian
resolution. This was defeated by a
party vote; yeas, 20; nays, 28. Tho
twonty-eight negative votes were cast
by the Democrats, and the twenty-six
affirmative votes by the Republicans,
and Messrs. Allen. Kyle and Peffer as
Bpaeobot in opposition to tho bill
were made by Senator Proctor, (Ver
mont), and Senator Pettigrow, (South
Dakota). At the close of Mr. Petti
grew's remarks Senator Gray, (Dela
ware), chairm in of the senate select
committee to investigate newspaper
statements as to senators speculating
in the stock of the Sugar Trust, made
a report that tho newspaper corres
pondents, on whoso statements the in
quiry had been ordered, had refused to
answer certain questions, aud had also
refused to r?veal the sources of their
information. Tho point was rsiied
and pressed by Mr. Hill, (Now York),
that tho report presented no question
of privilege.
mr. hill's argument.
Mr. Hill argued that tho senate had
a right to direct the presiding officor
not to proceed lurthor in the matter
until after further action of the senate.
He had no sort of Interest, personal or
etherwise, he said in the investigation.
It was proper enough that tho senate
should investigate the charge of brl b
ery. But the report on that question had
been presented and that portion of the
work had been substantially completed
He doubted the wisdom of tho other
proceeding. He doubted tho propriety
of endeavoring to find out whether
newspaper men always told the truth.
If the senate understood that great
work it would he !;ept busy the end of
time. Senators could speculate in sugar
stock, or iu silver, or In any other kind
of stock, and would violate no law In
doing go.
To a remark by Mr. Gray, Mr. Hill
replied that the senators referred to by
tue newspaper men could he placed
upon the stand.
"They are the accused parties," Mr.
Gray objected.
''They are not accused in any sense
of a crime in law," said Mr. Hill.
"This subject is being investigated for
the purpose of vindicating this senate
for tbe purpose of ascertaining the
truth. The best way if ynu desire to
go into the inquiry is to summon sena
tors. "
"How are we to ascertain," Mr. Al
len asked, "who they are, when the
witnesses refutie to disclose their names
or the sources of their information."
"Swear them all if yon have any
donbt about it," Mr. Hill replied with
snap, nnd tbe gallaries upplauded,
The discussion continued for some
time in the above strain but finally
Mr. Hill's opposition was overborne,
and a rnling made by the vice-president
that the question was ono of high
privilege, and that tho ronort required
no action on the purt of the eonate
the statute making it his duty to cer
tify the facts to the district attorney,
who is then to take action lu the prem
ises. And there the matter stood at
the adjournment with an additional
resolution offered by Mr. Dolph, Ore
gon, for the presentation of tho recal
citrant witnesses at the lnr of the een
ate for contempt of its authority.
The amendments that were offered
to the lumber schedule of tbe tariff
bill on Monday by Mr. Hale, Maine,
restoring the provisions of the existing
law as to sawed and dressed lumber,
and by Mr. Peffer, Kausas, to reduce
these dnlios by one hulf, and to place
undressed lumber on the free list, were
severally voted down, and an amend
ment by Mr. Allen, Nebraska, to put
logs, lumber, shingles nnd common
building materials on tbe free list, was
pending when the senate at 0,25 ad
journed until Thursday.

Jenkins Condemned.
New York, May 29. The railroad
ers' convention nt this morning's ses
sion practically completed a platform.
Tho snbstuuee ef it was made public
as follows:
The con von lion voted in favor of n
compulsory advisory law. It voted in
favor of electing railway commission
ers by a direct vote of tho people in the
various states instead of their being
appointed as at present. The recent
decision of several federal judges on
questions of rights and liberties of the
wage earners and the railroads are de
nounced ns unjust, unconstitutional
and un-American. Disapproval is ex
pressed of Jndge Jenkins' docisiou and
unqualified approval to tho position
taken by Judge Culdwsll,
Tho committee reported Judgo .Tonk
in's net to be a gross ubuso of thu
federal power. The different railway
men's associations nre asked to unite on
legislative lines to ask for national and
state laws for redress of grievaucea.
The ndoption of laws guarantee
ing to employes injured in their
duties redress through tbe courts
is asked for on the grounds that tbe
men are performing public functions,
ane are in a meusnre public servants,
and that the public stionld look otter

to the United Mine Workirs of Amer

the incorporation of tho postal tele

Gloomy Gathering at Philadelphia to
Discuss the Bituminous Strike
PiiiLADF.LrniA, May 28 A majority
of tho soft coal operators of Central
Pennsylvania se in to be congregated
in this city at preaeut. Most of them
today spent the time in visiting tho
offices of thu different bituminous
mines and exchanging views upon the
striko situation and the result of yes
terday's conference. With many of
ihom there is a hopo that tbe visit of
Mr. Per wind and Mr. Scott to Harris
Imrg to confer with Governor Patti
son upon the si tu ition, may result in
some measures ot mediation or arbitra
tion, Others again take a gloomy view of
the situation nnd relnctuntly admit
that they fear blood will be shod be
fore the striko will bi settled. If the
committee of throe authorized by the
conference yesterday to devise a plan
of action for the resumption of work
lias beou appointed, tboir names were
not made oublic today. It is nrobable,
bowovor, that Mr. Berwind, chairman
of tbe meeting, did not uppoiut tho
committee, but is awaiting the result
of bis meeting with tho governor be
fore he does so.

The opyra tors contend that this uction
of McBrlde's will intivita'nly cause the
collapse of the strike. They argue that
the conditions are entirely different in
the various slates where bituminous
OO aj is mined, aud that a resumption of
work in Oiiio, for Instance, would not
effect the Puunsylvaniu market.
