Jefferson City, Mo., March 14.— Appropriation bills provlOing for the expenditures of more than $73,000,000 during the 1925-26 biennial period were today started on their way towards final passage in the Missouri legislature when the house spent the entire day session In engrossing seven of the- principal appropriation measures. After a recess of an hour and a half at 6. p. m., the house met In night session and took up for consideration and engrossment the fee and fund appropriation bill, calling for thB further expenditure of approximately $8,500,000 during 192526. The relief appropriation bill, carrying a total of $657,000, was engrossed by the house Friday night. Try to Speed Up Bills. Working determinedly against the fleeting hours, which continue to shorten the four remaining days of the regular seventy-day session of the legislature, the house bent every effort to speed the appropriation bill on their way to final passage In an effort to have them cross the barrier before the seventy days expire at midnight next Wednesday. The largest appropriation bill, the measure providing for the expenditure of funds for construction of a new $60,000,000 state highway system, calls for a total expenditure of $58,700,588 during 1925-2G. A total of $30,000,000 of this amount will be money from the sale of state road bonds during each of the two years. There will be $15,000,000 of the bonds sold In 1925 and another $15.000,000 In 1926, as provided by the recently adopted good roads proposal known as proposition No. 50. Although the appropriation bills already engrossed total more than $75,000,000 and much more money is provided in other bills to be passed, not all of It comes out of the general revenue fund, which, it Is estimated, will have receipts totalling approximately $21,000,000 during 1925-26. The other money comes from fees and funds earned by self-supporting state departments and Institutions, the sale of road bonds, state automobile -license fees, the new state gasoline tax, various federal aid received by the state, and money received from other sources.

Although It Is unconstitutional to hold a Sunday session this is avoided by merely continuing tomorrow under the guise of Saturday's session, thus making the legislative record clear and show that only a Saturday session was held.

Shepherd had been held Incommunicado and persistently questioned by Mr. Crowe and his assistants. Shepherd said that he had made no admissions, and that being detained a while longer could not make any difference, as he had nothing to do with the death of young McCUn­ tock. He denied the statements of Dr. C. C. Falman, proprietor of a school of bacteriology, that he had studied there, had taken back for $50 a letter he had written regarding a course, or that he had taken three test tubes filled with typhoid bacilli.

William Scott Stewart, noted trial attorney, speaking in behalf of Mr. Shepherd, said that his client "technically is entitled to a discharge at this time," but rather than "precipitate a charge of murder, we want to give Mr. Crowe time to look carefully Into the case." He termed the accusations against Mr. Shepherd a "conspiracy to deprive him of his rights under a will."

Young McCUntock died last December 4 of typhoid fever while Ills fiancee, Miss Isabelle Pope, waited with a marriage license to be married to him when he recovered consciousness. ^ it was some weeks later when Judge Olson, acting, he said, after receipt of an anonymous letter, demanded that the death be Investigated.

Senator Robinson, Arkansas, the democratic leader, drowned out both senators with a demand to present a point of order and meantime taking a position between the Kentucky and Virginia senators. Senator Ernst finally was taken off his feet, but the hubbub continued and Senator Reed, republican, Pennsylvania, attempted to throw the senate Into executive session so as to shut out the scene from the crowded galleries that watched in eager expectancy. Order Is Restoi-cd. That failed, but order finally was restored when Senator Borah, republican, Idaiio, told the senate that "It is a very pathetic thing and a very pitiable thing that we have reached a point here In the senate of the United States where we cannot discuss public questions without Indulging In such personalities."

Washington. March 14.—President Coolidgo will offer Charles B. Warren a recess appointment as attorney general in the event that his nomination is rejected a second time by the senate, it was announced today at the White house. Upon receiving the information, the senate deferred a vote on the nomination until 2:30 p. m. Monday, after democratic leaders had declared the senate must meet fearlessly and decisively the challenge to it.s constitutional authority which they .said the executive had thrown down. Action a Surprise. The White house pronouncement, made on the president's behalf by Secretary Sanders, came as a complete surprise to leaders on both sides In tlie senate who had received word earlier In the day that the executive was considering the selection of another for the post. Reports to this effect were circulated generally In the chamber after Senator Curtis of Kansas, the republican floor leader, had returned from a conference with Mr. Coolidge at the White house and had consulted with a number of his colleagues in an effort to obtain an agreement to defer action of the nomination until Monday. Senator Walsh, democrat. Montana, a leader In the opposition to the appointment, refused to consent to that arrangement and debate was opened.

Senator Reed, democrat, Missouri, asserted that the president was, in effect, saying that he would override the constitution by putting into office a man the senate, in exercising its authority under the constitution, had said \^as unfitted for the position. There was no reply to these statements from the republican side of the chamber, but some friends of the president said that, in proposing a recess appointment to Mr. Warren he would bo wholly within his rights recognized by the congress In the passage of the act prohibiting payment of salary to offl- cliils appointed after the rejection of their nomination by the senate. These friends also said that the president was advised as to repeated opinions handed down by attorney generals In the past that the executive had full authority to make «, recess appointment imder the present circumstances.
