THE SUN, BALTIMORE, THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARX 17, 1901. 6 - .THE LIST OF GAMES Baltimore Athletic Club Makes Up Its Program. PREP SCHOOL QUESTION IS UP Shall Students Of Citr College And Polytechnic Institute Be Classed With Marsto&'s And Dunham's Following Is a list of events to be given at the games of tbe Baltimore Athletic Club at Fifth Regiment Armory on February 16. The events are both open and ln-terscholastle. Forty-yard dash, relay race, 220-yard dash, 440-yard run, SSO-yard run, running high jump, pole vault, standlngbroad Jump, 13-pound shot. Wrestling: 125-pound special, lightweight, middleweight, heavyweight. The open track and field events will be handicaps, and first and second prizes In the shape of gold medals will be awarded In each. The wrestling will be for the championship of the Atlantic Division of the Amateur Athletic Union. Following Is the committee In charge: P. L. Small, A. G. Lawrence, Dr. B. Merrill Ilopklnson, Le-Koy Gresham, G. E. Lamb, chairman. The question has been raised as to whether the students of the City College and Polytechnic Institute shall be admitted in tbecoining Baltimore Athletic Club games In the same class as those of Marston's, the Boys Latin School and Deichmann's School. The matter has been brought to the attention of President Hopklnson, of the Atlantic Division of the A. A. U. He said at first that there did not appear to him to be any particular reason why they should not be thus admitted. After considering over It, however, he said he was inclined to regard the three schools as a class by them, selves. He was sure such students would not apply for entrance as a competitor In a class set apart for "prep" students. He savs he has been Informed that a graduate of "the City College is admitted to Hopkins University without examination and a "Tech" graduate is surely not preparing for a university course. The question may be fully discussed by the games committee, when arguments from both sides will gladly be heard and considered. Dr. Hopklnson proposes that the City College and Polytechnic Institute candidates name a committee to meet a like committee from Marston's. the Boys Latin School and Deichmann's, together with the members of the games committee of the B. A. C, and adjust the matter. Dr. Hopklnson said either he or Capt. George E. Lamb, of the B. A. C, would, if desired, arrange such a meeting. In the open games, which will be handicapped, the B. A. C. committee will receive entries from anyone residing In the jurisdiction of the Atlantic Association of the A. A. U. who secures a registration card from a member of the registration committee. AK-icnltnral' Xew Athletic Control Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. College Park, Md., Jan. 16. At a large meeting of the athletic association of the Maryland Agricultural College last night a great change in the association and Its method of conducting athletics was effected. A new constitution was adopted which takes much of the responsibility out of the hands of the students and places it jointly In the hands of some of the members of the faculty and three undergraduates. Heretofore the students have had entire charge. By the change this committee nominates and the association elects all future officers, but it Is required to send In names of more than one nominee. The members of the committee Intend to object to any other than bona fide students taking part in future Intercollegiate contests in order that the college may go Into any new Maryland intercollegiate organization which may be formed.

Therefore a general invitation will be extended to all. SPLIT IN TURF CONGRESS Jfew Body To Be Known As Tne Western Jockey Clnb To Form. Chicago, Jan. 16. "The .Chicago, St. Louis, Xew Orleans, Latonla, Tanforan, Memphis and Louisville tracks will withdraw from the present Turf Congress and organize a new body similar to the Eastern Jockey Club," said a prominent delegate to the session of the Turf Congress held here today. "This will mean the dissolution of the present Turf Congress, the throwing out of the smaller Southern tracks and the organization of a strong Western body, with a board of stewards that will be extremely1 powerful in turf matters." This combination Includes the big tracks of the West, with the exception of Little Rock, a few small Southern tracks, Oakland and Ingleslde, the latter of which has not been In operation this season. These tracks will be provided for, however, if the present plans carry. The smaller tracks will be licensed by the larger and more powerful combine. Any track not so licensed will be called an outlaw. The new body, If It goes through, will be named the Western Jockey Club and will fix all racing dates. Col. F. M. Apperson, of Little Rock, In speaking of the contemplated change said: "The Turf Congress will not dissolve. It will go on as before. The clubs which will remain in it will be Highland Park, Newport, Nashville and Little Rock." The problem of disposing of a surplus of $45,000, which has gradually been accumulating in the treasury, was the principal business which confronted the members of the American Turf Congress when they met here today. Some favored a pro rata distribution of the money among the members, while others suggested that it be used for other purposes and a provision made for its ultimate return to those from whom it had been collected on licenses or fines. The division of the money was finally accomplished. Each track now in the Turf Congress secures $2,900. This leaves the sum of $2,600 In the treasury to cover present expenses. It is said that each of the big tracks will turn its $2,900 into the treasury of the new jockey club. THE RUNNING TURF Suspensions At Sew Orleans. . New Orleans, Jan. 16.

OLD SITE ON THE YORK ROAD . 1 Papers Signed For A Five-Year Tenure Stands To Cost ?20,000 To .Go tp Soon Railway Arrangements. President Sidney S. Frank, of the Baltimore Baseball Club, stated last night that the company had closed a contract for a five-year lease of the old baseball grounds,. York road and Twenty-eighth and Twenty-ninth streets. The property belongs to the Brady estate. It was used as a baseball ground by the Baltimore Baseball Club of the Atlantic and American Associations during the season of 1890, when the late William Barnie was manager of the club. The land Is about 430 feet equate and Is perfectly level. The grounds are about three blocks north of Union Park. President Frank said the management had agreed to spare no expense In fitting up the new diamond. The stands, it was estimated, will cost from $15,000 to $20,000. Within the next few days the plans of the architects will be received and the contracts will be given out for the necessary work. The stands are to be of the most approved modern construction, and an effort will be made to have them as comfortable as possible. The railway conditions are to be arranged shortly, and It is believed that th grounds can be reached from the center of Baltimore in 15 minutes, and probably 12 minutes can be made the limit. At present the only line going directly to the new ball park Is the York road line. The St. Paul street line, which runs over the elevated structure on North street, goes close to the park, and passengers can go to York road and Waverly avenue or alight at St. Paul and Twenty-ninth streets as the line now runs. There would be little trouble, however. In running the line directly to the ground. President Frank announces that there will be nothing requiring Mr. Johnson's attention here. All the important preliminary work is finished and the rest will fall to Manager McGraw, who, he was confident, would be found to have a strong club together when he was ready to show his hand. ANOTHER GAME OF R0B1S0N? Said To Have Made Tempting Offers To Donovan and Burkett. New York, Jan. 16. The World tomorrow will publish a story saying that another result of the recent assembling of league magnates came to light yesterday. It was a bold swing to give the Protective Association a black eye by inducing two prominent League players to sign contracts for 1901. A few days ago Robison sent for Pat Donovan and Jesse Burkett, members of last year's St. Louis team, to come to this city. "Mr. Robison offered me a contract to manage the St. Louis club next season," said Donovan, "at a salary that would be highly satisfactory to me. I am a member of the Ball Players' Association, and therefore told Mr. Robison that, in Justice to him and myself, I could not sign at present. I explained that if I signed now, and afterward the players were forced to yield to the League, my position would be anything but a pleasant one as manager of the team. "I was offered a good roll by Mr. Robison," said Burkett. "I have been In Mr. Robison's employ for 10 years, and always found him liberal and square. But under the present circumstances I had to refuse to sign." j Ban Johnson Starts East. Chicago, Jan. 16. President Ban Johnson, of the American League, left tonight for Cleveland. There he will be joined by C. W. Somers, who is carrying on negotiations for an American League club in Boston, and the pair will proceed East, visiting Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Boston. Since the defection of Wat-kins, of Indianapolis, there Is no longer any concealment of the fact that the American League proposes entering the Hub. In speaking of baseball conditions, Mr. Johnson said: "Boston is a good city. It is now only a question of time, and If our plans do not fall we will have a club there this year. Watkins is too strongly under National Influencethe Influence of John T. Brpsh for us to enro much about his actions. Indianapolis has always been a trouble-maker, and the club has marred the harmonious workings of our body. Confidentially, its withdrawal will be a boon, although I have a marked respect for Watkins' baseball ability." . It Doesn't Care For Baltimore. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. New York, Jan. 16. Delegates to the proposed American Association, which may be formed in New York this week to pl7 baseball, arrived this afternoon. A. II. Koch represents the club to be formed in Philadelphia. H. D. Quinn the Milwaukee Club, C. S. Havenor the Chicago Club. W. A. Watkins the Indianapolis Club, Harry Pulliam the Louisville Club and Arthur Irwin the Boston Club. Other delegates will reach this city tomorrow, when, it Is said, a temporary organization will be formed. It Is then the Intention of the promoters of the new association to make a formal application for recognition under the national agreement to the national board of arbitration. It Is understood tho members of the board are within call where they can act upon the petition. At present there seems to be some disinclination to accept Baltimore as a member of the new league, for the reason that Baltimore has been a "championship city" for so long that building up the game with anything but a team of star players is considered a hardship.

Brownley, who attended the bowling congress In Chicago last week, returned home early yesterday morning and were met by a delegation of friends at the station. Mr. Schneider explained the unexpected visit of Mr. Brownley to Chicago, and the Cud-ahy kidnapping case was strongly recalled. Mr. Brownley went to Mount Royal Station to see the Baltimore bowlers off on Sunday, January 6. He was persuaded to ride as far as Camden Station. When Camden Station was reached he was persuaded to go as far as Washington. When Washington was reached the conductor told Mr. Brownley that he could ride as far as Washington Junction and would there meet a train which was bound directly back to Baltimore. Mr. Brownley went to the junction, but when he attempted to leave the car the doors were locked and he was informed that he had been kidnapped. Then he was taken to Chicago. He wanted to cohie home from Chicago as soon as the bowling tourney was over, but Mr. Schneider hypnotized him, and Mr. Brownley went to .Milwaukee with Mr. Schneider and did not get home until yesterday. Brownley had with him only the clothes he wore, but others of the party opened their grips, and from these and the Chicago stores he got supplies which enabled hlra to pull through all right. The two Milwaukee tourists say the trip was very enjoyable. They found that Milwaukee was an Important beer-brewing center, and even Mr. Schneider could not drink all that was In the city. They said they found many Westerners who became their friends and promised to give the two Innocents a chance to return hospitalities In this city. , Drag Of Warrenton Hunt. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Warrenton, Ya., Jan. 16. The drag of the Warrenton Hunt Club this afternoon could not have been given under more favorable conditions. The weather was charming and the ground In fine condition. The meet was at the Warren Green Hotel and the start was made from Will Carter's farm on the Waterloo pike; thence through the farms of Hayes, McCabe, historic old "Oakwood,"now owned by Mrs. A D. Payne and the finish was at Clifton, the lovely mountain home of Majoor R. P. Barry. , . Mr. Hoffman Phlllpp, of Washington, was the only rider who came to grief, and he can only blame a stiff stake-and-rlder fence for his fall. In the run were: Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Portman, Miss Leiter, Miss Phlllpp, the Misses Barry, Mr. and Mrs. Barker, Miss Hicks, Sowers Stone, Maddux. Dr. Carter, Benner, Gaines, Smith and Phlllpp. Men Needed On Defender Worlc. Bristol, R. I., Jan. 16.-The present delay in setting up the frames on the keel of the Herreshoff boat is understood to be due to the fact that all the mechanics needed In the construction work have not been engaged. It is thought that the full force of men will be ready In a week and then frame-setting will start and continue without a break. Many of the bent frames have been deposited In the boat-shed, and alreadj markings have been made on the lead keel for the bronze plates. The stem casting shows but little difference in outline from that on the Columbia. It Is quite straight, with an easy rise from the turn near the forward bilge at the waterllne. These Sailors Are Snowed In. Deer Island, Maine, Jan. 16. Captain Rhodes, of the new Herreshoff cup defender, who came here several days ago to select a crew for the new yacht, has returned home without having accomplished his purpose. A heavy snowstorm made It impossible for Captain Rhodes to make his way about the island. When leaving, he- said he expected to be back within a few days. SPORTING MISCELLANY The eleventh round of the Baltimore City College Chess Club's tournament will be played this afternoon. ,. At Massillon, Ohio, Art Sims, of Akron, and Eddie Gardner, of Wheeling, fought 20 rounds, Sims being awarded the decision. Sims had all the better of it and during the closing rounds hit Gardner at will. At New Britain, Conn., Tuesday night Willie Lewis, of New York, was knocked otit by Hugh Mc-Padden. cf New York city, after four rounds of pretty fiphting. James Burke, of New Y'ork, was given a decision over Joseph Handler, cf Newark, in the tenth round of what was to have been a 15-round go. George West, one of the foremost drivers of light harness horses in the country, is dving at his home in Chicago. On Tuesday night his physicians announced that the end seemed only a question of hours. West was taken ill with an ailment of the liver when he sailed from Queenstown three weeks ago on his return from a trip abroad. Ferdinand Poggenburg played strong billiards Tuesday night against l'rank Gardner in the second game of the tournament for the championship of the National Association of Amateur Billiard Players at the Hanover Club, Brooklyn. He won by a score of 300 to 111, nearly breaking all amateur records for single average. He made 9 21-31. A meeting of the Association of Road Drivers and Amateur Horsemen, which is being organized by Mr. Christian Rosenbrock, was called for last night at the Diamond After a conference with those who attended, Mr. Rosenbrock stated that there were too few present to hold a meeting and it would be postponed until next Wednesday night. In the meantime invitations would be sent to a number of horsemen. It is stated at New Haven that although negotiations have not yet begun between Yale and Harvard and Oxford and Cambridge in regard to an athletic meeting this year such negotiations may soon begin. The main trouble heretofore has been the harmonizing of Yale and Harvard as to the place of meeting. Harvard having heretofore believed that the meeting should take place at Cambridge, while Yale has stood out for neutTal grounds. Harvard will probably come to Y'ale'g views. DISTRICT OF COLUSIBIA Proposed Gasf And Electric Lighting Combine Cheers KorMiss Gould. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Washington, Jan. 16. Concerning a House bill to provide for the consolidation of the local gas companies and their merger with the electric lighting companies of the District, the Commissioners have written Representative Babcock, of the House Committee on the District of Columbia, recommending that the measure be approved, with certain amendments. They reserve their judgment as to the wisdom of permitting consolidation of the gas and electric lighting companies. It would be wiser, they think, to govern the issue of stock by the proposed consolidated concern as the gas companies are now controlled, "under the supervision of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia." They ask finally that "where asphalt pavements or trees are Injured or destroyed by leakage the company owning such mains shall be responsible for such damage or loss." Under contracts said to have been concluded by the Washington Traction and Electric Company the ' plant of the old United States Electric Light Company, on B street, near Fourteenth, northwest, will be enlarged to extend completely along the block to Thlrteen-and-a-Half street. Within the building thus enlarged will be placed generators and dynamos of an aggregate capacity of 30,000 horse-power, more than twice the amount of . the current now needed for all purposes. The present power stations of the Brlghtwood line, the Columbia Railroad and tbe Potomac Power Company are to be closed. It is thought the total cost will not be less than $600,000. The contracts are said to preclude the union of the electric lighting companies and the gas companies of the city contemplated In a bill reported upon by the Commissioners and referred to above. Miss Helen Gould, Secretary and Mrs. Long, Assistant Secretary and Mrs. Hack-ett, Rear-Admiral and Mrs. Hlgglnson, Captain and Mrs. Jewell, Commander Everett and Mrs. Davis visited the local Soldiers, Sailors and Marines' Club last evening on the occasion of the club's monthly entertainment.

HAZING IS ROCNDLI SCORED Senator Money- Thinks The Hazee Justified In Killing; The Hniers-Itivers And Harbors Bill Passes. Washington, Jan. 16. A final vote upon the pending Army Reorganization bill will be taken by the Senate at 4 o'clock Friday afternoon, under the terms of an agreement reached late today. Speeches In opposition to the bill were delivered today by Mr. Allen (Fop., Neb.), Mr. Teller (S. R., Col.) and Mr. Butler (Pop., N. C). Mr. McCumber JRep., N. D.), made an argument In support of the measure. The feature of the debate was the denunciation of the practice of hazing at the West Point Military Academy. Mr. Allen, MrY..Money, of Mississippi, and Mr. McCumber declared It to be an evidence of brutality and cowardice, the Mississippi Senator maintaining that a cadet whom others attempted to haze would be justified In killing his assailants. He declared that If he were a cadet upon whom such cowardly brutality were attempted he would kill those who assaulted him, If he had to wait 100 years for the opportunity. Mr. Teller's Objection. Mr. Teller moved to strike out that paragraph in the Army Reorganization bill which empowered the President to place on the retired list any officer who has been suspended from duty by sentence of court-martial or by executive order In mitigation of such sentence. Mr. Teller said that the paragraph might apply to Major Joseph W. Wham, whose record he dwelt upon as a splendid one, filled with acts of gallantry at Nashville, Franklin and other battlefields. He read a number of recommendations from Influential people urging Major Wham's appointment as paymaster-general, and said this recommendation- seemed to have brought on Major Wham an infamous prosecution. ' The amendment was accepted by the committee and it was agreed to. Mr. Carter asked that a final vote upon the bill and all amendments then pending be taken at 4 o'clock tomorrow. Mr. Allen said that for the time being he would object, although subsequently he might withdraw his objection. Mr. Allen then entered upon an extended discussion of the pending measure, declaring his opposition to it in any form it might be presented. He declared it was wrong in its purposes and radically wrong constitutionally. There was no good reason for the passage of the measure in its present form. Adverting to the Philippine question, which he said he had no purpose to discuss, he maintained: "The Filipinos never owed allegiance to the United States and do not today. They owe allegiance only to their own island government, however weak and puny it may be. They are not rebels, though they may be Insurgents. I im opposed to this bill because its avowed' purpose Is to provide soldiers to be sent to the Philippines."' Discussing the presentation a few days ago of a petition of 2,006 Filipinos to the Senate, Mr. Allen urged that the signers of the appeal simply were exercising their right to appeal to Congress, yet, he said, the petition was denounced by Mr. Hawley as treason. "The flippancy with which the term traitor and treason are being used these days," said Mr. Allen, "Is getting to be a stench In the nostrils of some of us." Barbarity At est Point. In the course of his remarks Mr. Allen discussed vigorously the situation at West Point as brought out by the pending investigation. He declared that brutality had been developed there which ought not to be expected to exist among barbarians. "This thing called hazing prize fighting!" exclaimed Mr. Allen. "Why, the prize fighter Is a gentleman compared with some of those young ruflians at West Point. Indeed, life has been lost recently." After a brief review of the Booz case, Mr. Allen declared that the first thing a fourth class man meets at West Point Is brutal assault and humiliating Indignity. "And these things," shouted Mr. Allen, "take place within the knowledge of the oflBeers of the Institution! These new cadets are compelled to eat soap, they are compelled to get down on their knees and jump like a frog, and they are compelled to endure other indignities which I would not dare In this presence to mention." "Some of the regular army officers say hazing cannot be helped that It cannot be prevented. You place one of the old volunteer officers at the head of that institution and in six weeks he will put. a stop to It or ther will be some dead cadets there. "This brutal outrage ought to be suppressed and it can be suppressed. Boy or man, he who will use his superior strength In humiliating or brutally treating a weaker person is a coward. And yet this bill encournges and supports West Point as at present it is conducted. "With authority, I would stop that brutality at West Point," declared Mr. Allen, "or I would dismantle the school and turn over to the various States the education of the youth of the country for military purposes. , . "I have Information which leads me to believe that hazing at West Point Is resorted to for the purpose of forcing out of the Institution cadets appointed from civil life, in order to make room for the sons of army officers. And if they cannot force out the cadet by humiliation and intimidation, they prescribe a course of examination which is in their own hands and which they could not pass themselves, and thus force the proscribed cadet from the school." Mr. Gallinger Interrupted to say that the testimony taken by the investigating committee showed that young Grant and young Sheridan had been hazed quite as seriously as any others. Warranted A Killing;, Says Money. Mr. Money (Miss.) declared that the hazing never was warranted and that he knew of some .cadets who have been hazed to the point of danger. "They were hazed to a degree," said Mr. Money, with deep feeling, "that would have "warranted the hazee In killing the hazers." "They ought to have been killed," Interjected Mr. Allen. "And I want to say," continued Mr. Money, "that if I were a cadet at West Point and were hazed In so cowardly and brutal a manner I would kill the hazers, If the opportunity did not come for a hundred years afterward." Continuing his discussion of the action of the cadets at West Point, Mr. Allen said: "Those cadets carry hazing almost to the extent of taking life, and in one Instance recently they have taken life, and the Senator from Mississippi Money says they have taken life In several Instances." Mr. McCumber (N. D.) argued In support of the pending bill. Incidentally he vigorously handled the practice of hazing at West Point. "That practice," said he, "creates the worst character of brutality and the worst character of cowardice. Any bully who Is guilty of attempting to punish one who is physically unable to meet him Is such a coward that he should be discharged from the service." Back To The Philippines. Discussing the situation in the Philippines Mr. Teller declared the conditions in the islands bad not Improved since the United States had succeeded Spain there. Capable and intelligent observers, Mr. Teller asserted, had pronounced the Filipinos as fit to govern themselves as any other Oriental race.' In conclusion, Mr. Teller said: "I am not In favor of giving up the Islands. I want to hold them, because I think that would be betfVr fo the Filipinos, and that the Islands would be valuable to us. If, however, we can hold them only by force there Is no consideration, financial, commercial, or any other, that will Justify us In retaining them." Me. Butler (N. C.) In opposing the pending measure, said he was ready now to vote for auy army that the Government might need for the presenfemergency, or any emergency that might arise, but he was unalterably opposed to the creation of a lftiK landing army. He urged that not a Hlngle reasou had been furnished for tho creutlon of an army of 100.0(H) soldiers and for the rejection of the proposition to supply to the Government o volunteer army fo? service In the Philippines." "Kvory soldier In the army under this bill will be a volunteer," Interjected Mr. Hawley. "We do not regard It as per-mnnent standing army. The longest po-rlod of enlistment Is only three years. We will be here next year and can take care of the lt mil Ion ah may be deemed desirable." Mr. Butler responded that that wi'.i a mere sham and dodge and wot a reason for th proponed action, Mr. llawley aiiked for nnnnlmoua consent thflt n final vote be taken on the bill and r.mendnienti at 8 o'clock tomorrow. Mr. Danltsl (Va.)objected. Mr, Hawley theo modified hit request to fix the time for final voting at 4 o'clock on Friday. To this no objection was entered and the agreement was announced formally. ' I.".'.--- The Senate then at 5 o'clock, on motion of Mr. Foraker, went Into executive session, r.nd at 5.50 P. M. adjourned. Senator Daniel today suggested several amendments to the Army bill. One of them Is as follows: The President of the United States shall have the power, notwithstanding any provision in this act, to promote any officer of the army to any vacancy in the next highest rank, and any enlisted man to ft vacant second lieutenancy, for distinguished braTery in the face of the enemy in any action hereafter occurring. , IT CARRIES NEARLY 860,000,000 Tfce Hone Passed The Rivers And Harbors Appropriation Bill. Washington', Jan. 16. The Rivers and Harbors Appropriation bill was passed to: day by the House. The bill has been under consideration for over a week and has been assailed from mfany quarters, . but Its friends have stood solidly by It and de- Ufeated every amendment to which the River and Harbor Committee would not agree. j The bill . passed practically as it came from the committee. It carries slightly less than, .$60,000,000. of which $23,000,000 Is In direct appropriations. The friends of the Missouri river improvement, although they were unsuccessful In securing what they desired, persuaded Chairman Burton to offer an amendment to permit owners of property abutting on the Missouri to build dykes and wing dams for Its protection vvhere such structures do not Interfere with the navigation of the stream. Chafttee On Lootfngr. Before proceeding with the bill Mr. Hull (Iowa), chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs, reported back the De Armond resolution calling uporr the War Department for all Information relative to the alleged action of General Chaffee In protesting against the looting of China with the recommendation that It lie on the table. Accompanying the report Mr. Hull submitted the letter of the Secretary of War, already published, explaining the difficulty In obtaining the required information and pointing out that It could not be procured until after the expiration of the present Congress. Mr. De Armond (Mo.), the author of the resolution, said that he had been moved to Introduce it by a paragraph in the newspapers which was very creditable to General Chaffee, in which it was recited that he had rebuked or protestedagainst the conduct of an officer of a foreign Government in regard to the looting of China. The paragraph Indicated that neither the American commander nor the American soldiers were responsible for the barbarity and dishonesty which had taken place in that unhappy country. He desired only to procure official confirmation of the reports, but the reasons given by the Secretary of War for not pressing the resolution were entirely satisfactory to him. The resolution was then laid upon the table and the House went Into committee of the whole and resumed the consideration of yie Rivers and Harbors bill. Canadian Boundary Waters. Chairman Burton offered a substitute for Section 4. which was adopted. It authorized the President to invite Great Britain to Join in an international commission, composed of three members from each country, to report from time to time upon the conditions and uses of the waters adja cent to the boundary line between tne United States and Canada, including all the waters of the lakes and rivers whose waters flow by the St. Lawrence to the Atlantic ocean; also upon the maintenance and regulation of suitable levels and upon the effect upon the shores of the waters and upon the interests of navigation by reason of their diversion from their natural flow and to report upon the measures to regulate such diversions and to enter into such agreements and make such recommendations as shall best subserve the interests of navigation. It also authorized the President to appoint the United States members of the commission and authorized them to employ experts, etc. Mr. Corliss (Mich.) remarked that he considered this amendment the most Important provision in the bill. Mr. Cushman (Wash.) offered an amendment to appropriate $100,000 for continuing. the improvement between Puget sound and Lakes Union and Washington. It was lost. Upon the completion of the bill Mr. Cushman attempted to prevent the committee from rising and reporting the bill to the House, but he was overwhelmed, the vote standing 185 to 2. The committee accordingly rose. Mr. Cushman moved to recommit the bill. He demanded the yeas and nays, but was supported by only four, members. This motion being lost. Mr. Sulzer (N. T.) demanded the yeas and nays on the passage of the bill. Only 13 members backed the demand and the bill was passed without division. The Inauguration Expenses. The Senate concurrent resolution to pay the expenses of the Inauguration of the President and Vice-President, which was recommitted yesterday, amended so as to conform to the instructions of the House to provide for a joint committee of the House and Senate under whose auspices the inauguration ceremonies should take place, was adopted. Another concurrent resolution in pursuance of the foregoing to provide for the joint committee to be appointed by the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate to arrange the details of the Inauguration ceremonies also was adopted. Then, at 5.15 P. M., the House adjourned. 3IDDD OUTWITTED BELL Twas Only Natural He Should Act While The Other Was Away. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Washingox, Jan. 16. Representatives Mudd and Bell, of Colorado, had a lively dispute in the House today during the discussion of the River and Harbor bill, in which Mr. Mudd came out, the victor in handsome style. Representative Bell Monday, during the temporary absence of Mr. Mudd. objected to the provision appropriating $6,000 for the improvement of the Patuxent river, and the item was laid aside. Today it was called up by Mr. Mudd, and he explained that the sum is reasonable and that the commerce of the river justified its expenditure. The only opposition to the project comes from the Chesapeake Beach Railroad Company, which, under its charter from the Maryland Legislature, is required to operate a draw in Its bridge over the Patuxent river in case the stream is made navigable above the crossing point. The company does not wish the Improvement made, and as the promoters of this company are from Colorado, Mr. Otto Mears, Its president, enlisted the services of Mr. Bell against Mr. Mudd's project. Mr. Mudd said he had asked but $11,000 for the streams In his district only about one-fifteenth of the average allowance to other districts. It was because he had not asked more, he said, he supposed some people thought he should not be allowed tbe small sum he had asked. After this explanation the item was passed over favorably. ' A few minutes later Mr. Bell, who had been absent, entered the House and, observing he had been defeated, took Mr. Burton, chairman of tho "committee, severely to task for having the Item acted upon in his absence. Mr. Burton rather tartly remarked that he was engaged In the passage of a great appropriation bill and was not keeping track of the attendance of members. Mr. Mudd explained that he understood It was through courtesy to him that no action had been taken on the matter In his absence, as It was for a river In his district, and made no objection when Mr. Burton acceded to Mr: Bell's request that they should return to the Item. Mr. Bell then made an attack on the appropriation, saying that since the railroad had been constructed it handled all the commerce In that vicinity and the commerce on that part of the Tatuxent did not amount to $1,000 a year. The railroad had spent $1,500,000 In building a road and had connection with the Baltimore and Ohio which enabled shippers to reach Baltimore with their goods, and there was absolutely no necessity for further improvement of the stream, especially as the proposed Improvement extended only an eighth of a mile above the railroad bridge. He ha,d a letter from Mr. Menre read which substantiated his statements. Mr. Mudd made a stirring rejoinder to Mr. Bell. The latter had based his plea he said, wholly on the ground that the railroad corporation had objected to the Improvement. Here was a member of the House, elected from Colorado as a champion of the people, "posing as being against all corporations and corporate Interests, attacking a provision for the benefit of the poople in another part of the country where he had no Interest."

PLENTY OF PLACES TO FILL Over 1,000 Vacancies In The New Army Tbe Merchants And Miners' Company's Claim Still Pending:. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Washington", Jan. 16. No reasonable doubt exists that the Army Reorganization bill will be passed when the vote is taken Friday afternoon in the Senate. It will then go to conference,; where It Is believed all matters In dispute between the two houses may be speedily adjusted and the bill become a law within a few days. , Great relief will be afforded the Administration by the Dassaze of this act. as the time Is growing perilously short, and with- j out such action its military projects In the Philippines would be seriously crippled. The Republicans are not a unit on the Increase of the arms, and while there has been considerable talk of an extra session In case the bill Is not passed at this session, it is regarded by those who have followed the matter closely as extremely problematical whether a bill for an army of 100,000 men could be passed at an extra session. It certainly would not should the Supreme Court hand down a decision adverse to the Government's contention. Should the court so decide It is asserted that many Republicans will favor relinquishing the Philippines rather than retain them as territories of the United States, their products admitted free and their people to be permitted to pass to and fro between the Islands and the United States without restraint. It Is said their tobacco and sugar would ruin the same Interests In the United States If admitted without a tariff, and there would be a great desire on the part of the Senators and others Interested In these Industries to let go of the islands as. soon as possible after such a decision of the Supreme Court. Must Push It Through. This state of affairs is given by some as one of the reasons for the haste displayed by the leading Republicans In securing the passage of the bill, so as to have It out of the road before the opinion of the Supreme Court can be handed down. As the Supreme Court takes a recess in February, it Is probable that no opinion will be rendered until hear the close of Congress or possibly after. Many think that the old standing army of 25,000 to 27,000 men was amply large and would never vote for an increase save as a military necessity. This they find in the condition of affairs In the Philippines. With that In mind the Republican leaders are of the opinion that the opportunity must be seized at all cost. It was whispered about the corridors of the Senate end of the Capitol today that Senator Hanna had agreed that- if the Army bill were permitted to slide through the Shipping bill would not come up this session, and It was on this basis the agreement was made to vote at 4 o'clock Friday. Friends of the Shipping bill, however, deny that any agreement has been made to sidetrack it and say it will be pressed as hard as ever. Mr. HannaT may find himself opposed In the support of the Shipping bill by Mr. Quay, who has had no cause to love Mr. Hanna. Many Promotions Pending. Hundreds of promotions aw.ii; officers In all branches of the army when the Reorganization bill Is passed. - In the line there are about 800 who will be advanced, and there will be upward of 1,000 vacancies in the several arms and grades which must be filled from the volunteer service. The War Department has compiled a statement showing just where the promotions will occur. The cavalry is probably the greatest beneficiary under the provisions of the bill, and there has been considerable criticism that the percentage of cavalrymen allowed In proportion to infantry and artillery is heavier than authorized by any army in the world. In the cavalry branch 5 colonels will be advanced to the rank of brigadier-general, 10 lieutenant-colonels are made colonels, 25 majors lieutenant-colonels and 120 first lieutenants made captains, while 110 captains become majors, making a total of 370 promotions in that arm. .) In the artillery 5 colonels become brigadiers, 10 lietrtenant-colonels become colonels. 20 majors become lieutenant-colonels, 117 captains become majors and 93 first lieutenants become captains, making a total of 250 promotions In the artillery. In the infantry there will be 5 colonels made brigadiers, 10 lieutenant-colonels promoted, 25 majors, 125 captains, 175 first lieutenants, or 340 promotions in all grades. Summed up, the promotions in the three arms will be as follows: Colonels, 15; lieutenant-colonels, 30; majors, 75; captains, 352; first lieutenants, 3S8, or a total of S60. The number of appointments In the various arms and grades that must be made as a result of these promotions are as follows: Cavalry, 55 first lieutenants and 225 second lieutenants; artillery. 111 first lieutenants and 204 second lieutenants; infantry, 325 second lieutenants. The total number of appointments that therefore must be made from the volunteer service will be 280 in the cavalry, 315 in the artillery and 325 in the infantry. Totalized, there will be 166 first lieutenants appointed In tbe three arms and 754 second lieutenants, or a grand total of 920 appointments that must be made by the President to the army from the volunteer service. It Is to be noted that no volunteer appointments are to be above the rank of first lieutenant, and that all the other promotions resulting from the bill are to come from the regulars now In the army. Hagerstown Man's Claim. Representative Pearre today secured from -the Committee on Claims a favorable report for the claim of Albion Christy, of Hagerstown, Md., for $286.80. Mr. Christy's father was an Inspector of hulls In the Government service before the Civil War and was stationed at Savanah. After war was declared he remained in the South and the Treasury suspended payment on the warrant for his salary due to the amount stated." Mr. Christy has had his claim before Congress for some years. Tbe M. And 31. Company's Claim. Mr. Charles Wilson, of Baltimore, was at the Capitol today in regard to the claim of the Merchants and Miners' Transportation Company against the Government. Mr. Wilson saw Mr. Wachter, who has been Interested in the matter, and the Importance of this claim was presented to various members of the Committee on Claims by him and Mr. Wilson. It so happens that through the efforts of Mr. Pearre in the House and Mr. McComas In the Senate an Item' was included in the omnibus claims bills Introduced in both houses for the payment of this claim. At Mr. Peafre's request, Mr. Mahon, of Pennsylvania, chairman of the Committee on Claims, had the item placed In the House bill. It directs the Secretary of the Treasury to refund to the Merchants and Miners' Transportation Company "the amount of the earnings by the steamships Ben de Ford and S. Til. Spauldlng deducted from the purchase money thereof at the time said vessels were taken possession of by the United States; that In addition thereto there shall be refunded to the said company, and in the manner aforesaid, the difference between the market value of said steamships when sold at public sale by the United States and the arbitrary valuation paid at the time of said seizure and enforced purchase." All that remains is to secure the passage of the claims bill with this provision in It. The members of the Claims Committee have become impatient because of tbe pressure brought to bear on them in bo-half of this claim, when they have done everything that could be done by including It In the bill. The Impression prevails that this bill will not pass at this session. Mr. Wilson also sought the extension for five years of the Unvezaght patent for the separation of ore, which must be done by act of Congress. The ore crushers are manufactured In New York. ANNAPOLIS IMPROVEMENTS Chairman Burton Secures Adoption Of An Amendment For A Survey. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Washington, Jan. 16. Just before the River and Harbor bill was passed by the House Chairman Burton secured the adoption of an amendment providing for the survey of the Severn rlveB and Annapolis harbor. Instead of attempting to force the amendment through the House through Mr. Burton's wishes, as many other members did, Mr. Mudd Induced Mr. Bnrton to present it himself , and thus secured Its passage. Mr. Denny made no attempt to secure the adoption of an amendment providing for a survey for a 30-foot channel to Baltimore. Every attempt of this kind has been a failure, and time after time members of the House were defeated in their efforts to amend the bill for. the purpose of caring for some project or other. So Mr. Denny thought discretion the better part nt r!w nri. rather than face certain de- feat in the House, preferred to take a chance on sncceaa In the Hpnnt Tho t n malulng members of the Maryland delegation fully concurred in his views and every effort will be made to secure the adoption of the amendment In the Senate through Senators McComas and Wellington. CIVILIANS TYANT TO PARADE Numerous Organization Are Applying? To Marshal Warner. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Washington, Jan. 16. Chairman Edson, of the Inaugural Committee, and Marshal B. H. Warner,-of the civic division of the parade, reported today that the applications for civilian organizations outnumbered by 40 per cent, the applications received at this time four years ago. It Is now definitely decided that the Blaine Club, of Cincinnati, Is not to be In line. Several weeks ago that organization announced It would not come because suitable quarters could not be obtained. The Inaugural Committee then wrote offering to find quarters according to any standard the officers of the club might establish. Word was received today that the club could not accept the offer. During the morning Chairman Edson and Chairman John B. Larner, Jr., of the subcommittee on parks and reviewing stands, conferred with several Treasury Department officials on the stand to be erected near the Treasury Building. In order that the structure may conform with the plans of the committee, it has boon agreed that the stand shall be built by Mr. Laftier's'subcommittee and the cost apportioned among the clerks. SHAVING DOWN BIDS Newport News And Bath Companies 3Iay Get Contracts. Washington, Jan. 16. President Orcott and Judge Payson, of the Newport News Shipbuilding Company, and the Hyde Brothers, representing the Bath Iron Works, held a conference today with Secretary Long and his bureau chiefs respecting the department's offer to each of. these concerns of a contract for building a sheathed bat tleship, providing the bids were brought within the appropriation. The limit of cost for the sheathed battleship was $3,600,000, but from this sum the department deducted about $85,000 for expenses of superintendence and for coppering the hull. The Newport News bid of S3,593,000 was consequently not very much beyond tbe available sum, and the Bath bid of $3,590,000 was even nearer the department's figure. But the cuts made In the specifications, including an elecric lighting plant, amount to at least $150,000, and today's argument was devoted by the representatives of the firms to showing that they could not properly be expected to make the heavy sacrifice Involved 'n restoring the Items stricken out. They produced calculations by their experts to establish their contention that the ships could be built at the Government figure and according to the full specifications only at an absolute loss. Secretary Long took these representations under consideration and it appears a compromise can be reached. TO FORCES OF LAND AND SEA Orders Issued To Members Of Both Arms Of Tbe Service.
