Two Important Measures Are Dis
posed of In the Senate.
MILITARY AND REVENUE
Hazing Paragraph Instructs the Su
perintendent of the Milltnry Acad
emy to Make Such Rules as Will
Effectually Prevent the Piactlce of
Hazing House Committee Makes
Report Tax Modified on Tobacco i
and Cigars by House Committee.
Hi KmIikIu- Wire (rem ilie AhmmIjihI I'h -.
Washington. Feb. C. Two Important
measures were disposed or by the sen
ate today, the military academy ap
propriation hilt and the war revenue
reduction measure. The former was
under consideration less than an hour.
The only change made In It was the
strengthening of the provision against
hazing at West Point.
During the remainder of the after
noon session the war revenue redue- I
Hon bill was befoie the senate. A
determined but unsuccessful effort was
nnido to reduce the tax on bank checks
and to provide that telegraph and
express companies should bear tho
burden of tho tax on messages and
packages ,ent. Tho finance commit
tee's amendment levying a lax on
transactions In so-called "bucket
shops" modifying the tax on c-lgais
and flgureltes, and providing for a
rebate on unbroken packages of to
bacco, In addition to several others ot
a minor character, were adopted.
An amendment substituting an in
come tax for the war revenue meas
ure, offered by Mr. Morgan, of Ala
bama, was rejected by a party vote,
'M to 3S.
As agreed to, the hazing paragraph
in tho military academy appropria
tion reads as follows: "That the su
perintendent of the military academy
shall make such rules, to be apprtned
by the secretary of war, as will ef
fectually ltrevent the practice of haz
ing; unci any cadet found guilty of
participating In or encouraging or
countenancing such practice; shall be
smumaiily expelled fiom the academy
and shall not thereafter be reappoint
ed to the corps of cadets or be eligible
for appointment an a--coiiiinlsjloncd
oillcer In the army or navy."
Hnzlng Committee Reports.
The special committee of the house
which Investigated hazing at West
Point has practically completed Its la
hors ami has framed lis report and tho
bill which will be pioposell as a remedy
for the evil. Iloth bill and report will
be profented to the house as soon a
they can b printed .The onnunittes
held an extended session today, going
over the report and discussing the
terms of the proposed 1 -glslatlon. The
recommendations will be very strln
g"iit and it is said that today's action
el the senate In providing expulsion
from the academy and Ineligibility for
army appointment Is exceedingly mild
compared with the legislation proposed
by tho special committee.
Willie the committee withholds tho
details ot the report until It can bo
presented to the house. It Is under
stood that the recommendations are
along lines heretofore Indicated, em
bracing expulsion for hazing or for
sending or accepting ti challenge, or
for any participation In a challenge
or Its results; closer association be
tween acadsniy official and cadets with
a. view to placing full knowledge of
what is going on within the range of
the officials, and Increased responsi
bility for the action of cadets, and in
eligibility for re-appolntinent as endpt
or for appointment to the army In case
of dismissal for hazing. The stringent
details of the provisions are under
stood to give them additional force.
Fostofllcc Appropriation Debate.
Debate on the postottlce appropria
tion bill consumed another day In the
house. About two hours were occupied
by Chairman Loud, of the postofllce
committee, who was n member of the
postal committee, In the discussion ot
the subjects Investigated- by It. The
t-t-mniudwr of the time was occupied In
debate upon the three subjects, pneu
matic tube service, special mall facili
ties and railway mall pay. .Mr. Htirke,
of Texas, and Mr. Williams, of Missis
sippi, opposed the appropriation for
special mall facilities to the south.
Ml. Swaiiion, of Virginia, defended the
nppropilatlon, and Mr. Cowherd, of
Missouri, championed the appropria
tion for special facjlities between Kan
sas City and Nowton, Kansas. It was
agreed before adjournment today that
debate should close tomorrow nt U'.:iO
p. in., when the votes should be taken
upon the several amendments which

FIRST SIGNS OF BREAK.
Miners nt Columbus Decide to Re
cede from Position Taken,
lly VJvcltinho w'lro from Th Associated Trcm.
Columbus. O., Feb. 6. The first sign
of a. break In the Htand taken by
either side In the conference between
the coal operators nnd miners this af
ternoon when It was decided by the
miners that they would recede from
the position thuy took In the Indianap
olis convention. At least they receded
to tho extent of leaving the miner
members of the scale committee free
to make tho best terms possible, sub
ject lo approval before final accept
ance. This Is Bxpected to simplify
matters to a. considerable degree. Af
ter the Joint conference had spent tho
greater part of the day In discussing
the resolution to put the run of mine
basis In all stales, the question, hav
ing one.- been voted down, was re
I'eired hack to the scale committee.
They were Instructed to consider tho
whole matter. The conference then
adjourned, subject lo the call of the
committee. It was nt this time that
tlm lust sign of a concession made Us
appearance, when the miners asked
that the time of the committees meet
ing be fixed for T o'clock, that they
might have opportunity for a con
feieneo. This was agreed to by tho
operators, .and tin- miners at onoo
went Into scciet session, which re
sulted In leaving the question of fix
ing a scale committee, who were re
quired, however, to lvporfl back their
) action for approval before terms could
j finally be reached.
I The scale committee held a very
brief session tonight nnd after ap
pointing a sub-commltfee to take the
;eale question adjourned until 9 o'clock
tomorrow. The object In appointing a
silh-committee Is to facilitate the work,
the original committee of thirty-two
Inning proven unwleldly. Since the
first signs of a tlueatened break In the
agreement both the operators and min
ers have become all the more deter
mined to prevent It. The only hope ot
a settlement, however, rests upon tho
feeling that It would be a calamity If
the conference should adjourn without
agreeing upon a scale and that no
effort must be spared to avert such a

Mrs. Nation Is heading for Chicago to

today, when told that Mrs. Nation hart
announced her Intention of visiting
this city with her followers.
"If she is, she had bettir iciunin
aw-ay and avoid double. Here a sa
loon Is recognized ns a legal institution
entitled to the full protection of the
law. As a consequence, It Is only
proper to say that no assaults on them
will be tolerated. If Mrs. Nation un
derstands these things, persists In dis
orderly conduct, inciting riot and ma
licious mischief, I am afraid tlr will
have to settle tines as fast a she In
dulges In offenses."
Arrangements were completed by
the Press Club of Chicago and Mrs.
Nation's representative, whereby she
will lecture nt the Auditorium next
Tuesday under the auspices ot the
Pi ess club.
Alts. Nation's visit, nccordlng to Iter
friends, will be a peaceful one. and
she will not undertake to destroy any

contractor and -owner of boats, who
had considerable transpoitatioii con

The ptovost marshal and Secret cji--vlce

the police nnd Carranza t lie latter was
placed In conllii'-meut in thu Alula

Curium) was arrested tonight, and af
ter considerable questioning was senL
to the same station. The men are
charged with conducting the business
of buying copra (the dried kernel of
the cocoatiut broken up for export)
from Insurgents' picslilentcs at Pag

liUguna De Bay, and also with paying
assessments for the Insurgent cause.
The evidence adduced tonight was to
the elfcct that the prisoner have sup

Insurgent uniforms. Both the Insur

dealt with Carranza nnd Caiman, are
now imprisoned In Manila. One of
them, Fabella, fears hanging, because
he was captured as an Insurgent after
having sworn allegiance to the Fulled
States. He made strong statements
tending to Implicate Carman and Car

of 1,'eyes, who became presldente of
Pagsanjan nftcr Fabella.
The police have letters and verbal
statements from Carman, who sought
Fabellu's release, asserting that he
was a patriotic subject. I According lo
papers found both the profddentcs are
culpable Insurgents. Carranza and
Ciii-mnn admit trading with Insurgents
but deny contributing to iheir cause
or furnishing them with supplies. Car
