By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Pret.
Washington, May 2. The house to
day passed the anti-conspiracy bill re
ported from tho judiciary committee,
without a word of debate. It came up
rather unexpectedly, and Mr. Littlefleld
(Maine), who had filed a minority re
port on the bill and had intended to
offer some amendments, came in Just
as it was put upon Its passage and the
vote was taken before he understood
what wus going on. The bill is as fol
lows: That no agreement, combination or 'contract by
or between two or moro persons to do or pro.
cure to be done or not to do, or procure not fo bo
done, nnv net in contemplation or furtherance of
any trade dispute between employers and em
ploy ei in the nistilet of Columbia, or in any ter.

shall nny restraining order or injunction be issued
with lelitlou thereto. Nothing- In thW art shall

The amendment providing the ma
chinery for tho enforcement of the per
sonal tax law of the District of Colom
bia, passed in 1S78, was placed on the
District appropriation bill as a rider
and the bill was passed. The. bill to
provide diplomatic, and consular offi
cers for the republic of Cuba also as
v In the Senate.
A lively debate was precipitated in
the senate today by Mr! jrltchard
(North Carolina) by some remarks he
made on political methods In North
Carolina, In the course of a discussion
of the Philippine bill. He suggested
that some of the methods employed by
the opponents of the bill in this coun
try ought to be reformed and told of
xvhat is called the "sand cure", in North
Carolina, the victim having his face
crushed Into the sand to stifle his cries,
while he was being beaten to Intimi
date him politically.
Mr. Simmons (North Carolina) de
clared that he never heard of such a
practice, and the debate concerning
North Carolina politics was fully
launched. Mr. Prltchard charged that
the "red shirts" rode over the state to
terrorize Republican voters. Mr. Sim
mons denied that statement, and in
sisted that the "red shirts" never had
committed an unlawful act, and, as a
matter of fact, intended only to organ
ize the voters of the state. The debats
waxed warm, Mr. Prltchard declaring
vthat he had been approached by am
emissary of the Democratic party with
a proposition to drop the Impeachment
proceedings against Republican judges
In North Carolina If he would nollo
prosequi cases pending in the courts
against certain Democrats for election
frauds. Mr. Simmons unqualifiedly de
nied that such a proposition had been
made by authority of the Democratic
The Rosebud Indian reservation bill
and the sundry civil bill were again
considered, but not completed.
