Washington, Jan . 15. A spirited dls-cut-sion
wua pteqipltutcd in tlm senate
today by some temaiks submitted by
Mr. Hale, of Maine, in respect to bills
relating to the foimatlon of a naval rc
stre, which he introduced. Ho took
ptioiig ground against the organization
of n naval rcscne, his comments being
construed by sonic of the benutor.s Into
a i eflpetlou upon volunteer soldiers and
Kind mllltla. Half a dozen senatois
were on tlieir feet in an instant to de
fend the -volunteer and the National
Gua: d of tlie various states, and the
debate took so -wide a range that sen
atois went back in tlieir lecollcctions
to the dujss of the levolullon to seek
Illustrations for their ai guments. While
no action was possible at this time, It is
HUt'ly the diseus-slons upon the lueas
uie, should they bo tepeated, would be
ciy llely. No business of important e
was tiansactod, the time of tlie senate
being consumed by ln.Uteis of loutine
After the adjournment of the senate,
Mr. Hale said the naval leseivo bill in
loduced bv him today had been pic
lented bv request of persons iutetested
n smh legislation. In the same man
.i( r he had intiocluecd bills lepirsont
Jng both the nay dpp.iilment's Ipws
nlitl that of indildunls or in gniiiiMtlonft
on the question of a naval rescue. He
peisonully, however, did not stand coiii
initted to any of them and he ques
tioned whether any satisfactory lesults
would tome from them.
In the rourse of the debate today, Mr.
Hoar mudc thoieruuilt that it was tlie
New Ihiglaiidsaliora who won ourvin
dependence in the war of the i evolu
tion, whereupon Mr. Tillman insisted
that Mr. Hoar should give some of the
eiedlt of gaining Independence to other
states besides Now Kngland. Amid
laughter and applause, he declnicd:
"There's, glory enough to go round, as
our great admital in command at the
battle of Santiago said."
In the senate today Mr. Hoar intro
duced the following resolution:
"That the president, if in his judg
ment, it be not incompatible with the
public interest, be requested to inform
the senate whether the department of
state has any ofilcial Information
whether the British government ex
acts duties on goods intended for pils
oners of war in Bermuda, In violation
of article 16 of the convention adopted
at The Hague, which Is as follows:
Gifts and relief in kind for prlsoneis
of wur shall be admitted free of all du
ties of entry and others, as - ell as of
payments for carriage by the govern
ment railways.' "
In explanation of his icsolutton, Mr.
Hoar said that some charitable organi
zations in this countt y had sent sup
plies and comforts to Boer pilsoneis
detained in Bermuda. Upon these sup
plies duties had been collected in con
travention of The Hague tieaty. ifo

About nine or ten 1ms came on the
hill es-teiduy afternoon, after school
hours, with a big "bob" sled belonging
to a boy named Charley Murray. There
were scveial other "bobs" on the hill,
but Mm ray's "double ilpuei" was the
biggest ancl fastest of them all, und the
lads who weio tiding on it woie tlie
most envied youngsters within two
The "bob" started down the hill about
4 SO with an extra big load on and
skimmed along over the snow at a ter
rific rate of speed. A coloied man di Iv
lng a horse and buggy belonging to F.
S. Godfrey, started to dilve out of
Kressler coutt into Pine street at about
the same time and had Just reached the
center of the street when the "bob"
came flying past Jeffeison avenue.
Cries of warning were given nnd the
coloied man drove light across the
stieet, thinking that the steeisman ot
the "bob" would tuin to the left. The
lattei thou slit that the dilver would
stand still, and turned to the light. The
lesult was a teirlfic collision, The "bob"
sailed Into the buggy with gieut foice,
tinning it ovet and tin owing the hois-e

tin own to the giound, but c-taped In

on tlie "double rippei" went sailing Into
the air In all dliections, and the sled
Itself was ruined almost beyond icpnir.
Jerome Caveney, a 10-year-old lad, ic

Wilkes-Hnrre, Pa., Jan. IB. At to
day's sessions of the United Mjno
"Wot Iters' convention, Dlstilct No. 1, a
consldciable amount of business was
tumsacted. Kesolutlons weio adopted
and forwarded to the secretary of the
national coinentlon of mlncto, which

notices to all the opeiators in the an
thracite legion lenuesting them to meet
the inlneis In joint confciencc to con
sider the giloxauccs promulgated by
the Hapleton convention. The most Im
portant of these gileances are an
eight-hour day, coal to be mined by the
ton, instead of the car, and the recog
nition ot the mlticis' union. A resolu
tion was rilbci adopted which will piob
ttbly put a stop to some ot the petty
strikes in this leelon. Tlie 'resolution
piovldes that the membeis of any local

theiefore, not fair to tlie mlneis th.it
they should be at the mercy of the

last July, when the statlonaty fheincn
