Washington, April 21. Without a
word of discussion of the merits of the
measure, the senate today passed thn
river and harbor bill, carrying in ap
propriations about $70,000,000. So thor
oughly had the bill been considered by
the commerce commission that every
senator was content that It should puss
as reported from the committee.
As no senator was prepared today to
begin debate on the I'hillpplne govern
ment bill, the measure, after a few
minutes of informal discussion, went
over until tomorrow.
Tlie house today entered on consider
ation of the military academy appro
priation bill. In addition to the regular
items, it contains provision for the ex
tensive improvement of the giouiiils
and buildings at West Point. These im
provements are to cost $6,500,000, of
which a little over $3,000,000 Is appropri
ated in I he bill. Twenty-four of the
thirty pages of the bill were completed.
During the general debate on the
military academy bill, Mr. Gilbert
(Kentucky) precipitated a discussion on
the race question, which was partici
pated in by Mr. Uillett (Massachusetts),
Ulackburn (North Carolina), W. W.
Kltchih (North Carolina) and Mr.

The Democrats of the house of rep
resentatives held a caucus tonight to
consider the Philippine civil government
bill agreed on by the Democratic mem
bers of the insular committee. The
caucus lasted until shortly before mid
night, when a resolution by Represen
tative Jones, of Virginia, was adopted,
unanimously approving the minority
bill and requesting the Democratic
senators in order to reconcile any dlf
lerenees existing as to tiie details of a
Philippine measure, to reach an agree
ment upon one bill to be urged In
both branches of congress.
1 efore the adoption of his resolution,
the Democratic members of the Insu
lar committee explained the terms of
the four separate Philippine measures
now proposed. The Republican bill in
the s-enule provides a temporary form
of civil government, in effect continuing-
the present system. The Republi
can house bill proposes a complete form
of civil government, with a Philippine
legislature. The Democratic: bills,
both In the senute und In the house,
look to ultimate independence of the
Islands, but the house measure goes
nioie In detail on the period preceding
independence, fixing July 4, 1011, as the
date for complete insula:- Independence,
it is with a view to reconciling the de

CAN SUE THE
Difference Between the Case Brought
by That State Against the Secur
ities Company and the One
Instituted in Minnesota.
By Kxtftisitc Wile from The Associated l'rcm.
Washington, April 21. The United
States Supreme court today granted
leave to the state of Washington toullo
an original bill for an injunction
against the Great Northern Railroad
"ompany, the Northern Pacilie. Rail
road company and the Northern Secur
ities company in accordance- with the
petition of that state recently Hied in
The opinion In the case was delivered
by Chief Justice Fuller, who salri that
the court had always exercised the ut
most care In its proceedings in original
cases and that the present decision to
grant leave to file vas intended to be
entirely without prejudice to cither par
ty at interest.
The chief justice's opinion was very
brief. It consisted of a review of orig
inal cases of the same character which
have been brought to the attention of
the court. The two most important of
those cited were that of the state of
Louisiana against the state of Texas,
concerning the quarantine regulation of
the latter state, in which leave wis
given to file, and that of the stute of
Minnesota against the Northern Seourl
lles company, in which the petition to
llh; was denied.
Referring to the latter the chief jus
lice said the petition had been refused
because of the insuperable objection
that indispensable parties to the case
could not be brought into the court.
That objection did not. however, con
front the court in the present case, and
the court felt that becuu.se of its desire
to pioceed with the utmost care and
deliberation in all cases where original
actions are brought in this court, the
precedent of the Loulsluna-Texas case
should be followed rather than, that of
the Minnesota case In the present In
stance. Hence leave to file would be
granted and subpoenas would bo is
sued returnable on the first day of the
next term of the court in October.
The following suits are pending
against the Securities company:
United States vs. the Northern Se
curities company; for the purpose of
testing the question whether the case
comes within the federal anti-trust act.
Minnesota vs. the Northern Securi
ties company In state court, on the
claim that the case Is within the stat
utes of that state and also of the fed
eral anti-trust act.
State of Washington vs. the Northern
Securities company, for an Injunction
by the United States, on the ground
that the case Is' within certain consti
tutional prohibitions of the stute of
Peter Power vs. the Northern Pacific.

ENTIRE COLORED FAMILY
Police Incline to a Theory of Murder
Dy Ux-diuive Wire fiom The Associated TreM.
Chicago, April 21. Dead In a stuffy
bedroom In 'a crowded tenement, In
State street, the bodies of an entire
colored family, numbering seven per
sons, were found tonight, gnawed by
rats and In an advaived state of de
composition. The nollce Incline to a
theory of murder and suicide by poison.
The family Is that of James Butler, un
upholrterer, and consisted of Butler, his
wlte and live childien. They had been
dead for eight days.
While the members of his family wore
either partly or wholly undiessed, the
body of Butler was entirely clothed. He
had seemingly thrown himself In des
peration ucrofes the corpses of his wife
and children some time after the poison
had acted on them. Butler had fre
quent dllllcullles with his wife and had
made tin eats to do away with his fina
lly. It Is thought that despondency, due
lo brooding over the conditions sur-
rpunding his family, who were In utter
poverty, caused Butler to become In
sane and laky the lives of all sevun,

Before the candidates for admission
on trial were presented, the bishop
made a few remarks.
"What the Lord wonts with such a
large reserve force of Methodist min
isters, I often wonder," said the bishop.
"Sometimes I think they are to bo In
demand In the foreign Held. Sometimes
I wonder whether the Lord wants all
the preachers In this country to have
a Methodist training. AVo have un
over-supply; some other churches have
an under supply. I cannot advise our
candidates to go Into other churches.
Yet the Methodist training will not
"harm them. I'd rather belong to a
church that has enough vitality and
spirituality to supply our own pulpits
and to have a few left for those too
poor to fill their own. Perhaps that
may be part of our mission. I don't
like to assume that It Is, There will be
room when some of these older breth
ren kindly go to heaven, but we don't
want to hurry them.
"It Is growing to be a problem what
to do with the youngest and the oldest
men. The pastorates do not usk for old
men. They all want the young und vig
orous, but wo have such a large num
ber of small appointments In our con

Of 145 Passengers on the City
of Pittsburg One-Half
By Exelushe Wire from the Associated l'rcs.
Cairo, 111., April 21. After searching
two days, tho death roll of the burned
steamer City of Pittsburg has not been
reduced at nil from the first, reports.
Of the 1-13 people on the boat when It
burned yesterday morning, about one
half are still missing, and tonight no
further hope for them Is expressed. The
books and valuables of the boat, crew
and passengers arc still in the ruins.
The wreck Is above water and still
smoldering tonight. Owing to the heat
ed condition of the hull, search for those
cremated, in It has not been begun, and
very few of the bodies of those drowned
have been recovered, owing to the swift
current at the scene of the disaster.
At tho coroner's Inquest today over
the bodies of Captain Sylvester Doss
and Miss Maria Tisslm, nothing was
developed as to the origin, cause or 10
sponslblllty for the disaster. Captain
Phillips testified that ho could not ac
count for the origin of the tire, unless
an electric wire hud started it. Ho
stated that, so far us he knew, fifty-six
lives were lost. The coroner was ad
vised ot other bodies having been le
covered at distances from this city, but
none of them have been Identified.
Many stories have been told today by
the survivors of their thrilling experi
ences in escaping from the burning
boat and some of them are of a most
startling character. A'lctlms were from
points along the Ohio valley, and have
left a trail of bereavement from Pitts
burg to the Mississippi.

Wilkes-Barre, Pa April 21. After one of the most animated contests
in the history of the county, Attorney General John P. Elkin carried the Third
district today by a majority of two, securing both delegates to the state con
vention. Representative Dr. William 'Marion, the anti-machine candidate,
was defeated for renomination by the organization candidate, Evan R. Morgan,
The leaders of both the Elkin and Watres factions were working up to the
very moment of the vote taking, and repeated efforts were made to have the
convention take a recess so that more influence could be brought to bear on a
few who had promised each party and were doubtful. So close were these
motions that each was defeated by a tie vote. Sol Bacharach, Lee Hol
comb, Jerry Hoover, and other prominent regulars were chief among the
workers doing all they could for Elkin.
The names of Dr. D. W. Dodson and Richard Lewis were" presented by
the Elkin men and James Edwards and James Turner by the Watres party.
The vote '"s 26 to 24 for the Elkin delegates. Dr. William Mahon was bad
ly defeated vy Evan R. Morgan, the stalwart candidate for the legislature",
withdrawing his name when he had 12 1-2 votes to Morgan's 22 1-2.
The resolutions endorsed Congressman W. H. Palmer, who is out for re
election, and had the following to say about Elkin :
"That the delegate elected in the Third Legislative district are in
structed to vote for and in every honorable way promote the nomination
for Governor of Hon. John P. Elkin at the state convention, as we do be
lieve he is entitled to this recognition at the hands of the party. He has,
during the past seven years, stood in the front of the battle for the supre
macy of Republicanism in Pennsylvania.
"Ho has been the general in command whom the people wore delight
ed to follow. He has the confidence of the voters of Pennsylvania today,
and the efforts being made to side-track him will be prevented by our
people. The American people believe in fair play and think Hon. John
P. Elkin should be the Republican standards hearer at the approaching
The Fourth District.
Hrzleton, Pa April 21, James G. Harvey, of Hazleton, was this af
ternoon nominated by acclamation as the Republican candidate for the legls;
ature from the Fourth Legislative district of Luzerne, John Gernheard, "of
