S'-niito. WASHINGTON', Feb. 3T.—The reading of the journal of Tuesday having been dispensed with, and there being no morning business, the sundry civil appropriation bill was laid before the senate. Several small amendments were offered to the sundry civil bill and agreed to. including the following: ^Appropriating £25,000 for a hospital at Fort M'ea-de, S. D. . Tlie Gorman amendment for the issue of SIOO.000,000 of 3 per cent, certificates of indebtedness and requiring United States bonds to be offered to the public for twenty days was then taken up, it being section 2 of the bill. Senator Berry (dem., Ark.) made a point of order against the amendment as general legislation on an appropriation bill. Senator nill (dem., K- Y.), before a decision of the point of order, moved to amend the' amendment by adding the words: "And hereafter all treasury notes and United States notes that may be redeemed shall not be reissued, but shall be canceled.' 1 A long discussion ensued on the point of order made by Senator Berry and the amendment offered by Senator Hill, Senator Gorman leading in the debate in speaking to his own amendment. He submitted to the senate that it could not afford to adjourn until provision should be made to meet an expected deficiency, unless congress desired the issue of 4 per cent, bonds, running thirty years, or 5 per cent, bonds running ten years. Think! Thcr« Will B« » Shortage. Senator Gorman said that the answer made by the secretary of tho treasury to the resolution of the senate (as to the condition of the trewrary) was, on itafxse, misleading. It had b«ec g-ot up by clerk* and bookkespers, and had not had the close inspection of B« ttwnffht tut the secretary was mistaken, ana tliat at the end' of the fiscal year on June 30, 1S03, there would be a deficiency of 500.000,000. It is not wise for congress to adjourn, he said, "leaving the treasury department with the open declaration made by the president of the United Slates, that, in an emergency, he will continue to sell bonds. Tliat is too expensive. It is piling up a public debt iu a form that is distasteful to the people of this country." lie did not criticise the president for the action he hud taken, buthe wanted the policy changed so that congress should provide sufficient money, thus leaving no excuse to sell bonds. After a long debate, Senator (.iorraan, recognizing the impossibility of having action on the amendment providing for the issuing of 5100,000,000 of treasury cerUfieai.es to meet the current; expenses of the government without endangering the passage of the remaining ^appropriation bills, withdrew the amendment. .Unvo tho PivHitlciit.'* Approval.

HAYWARD CASE DRAGS. JU.-f.Misc Wold-mined lr Ponnililo to Fasten Crime on A«lry. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Feb. 27.—The defense in the Hayward murder case seems determined to fasten the responsibility for tho highway robbery of April ~'7. IS'.M, on Adrian llayward, the confessing brother of the accused. The chief incident of the session of the criminal court Wednesday morning was the testimony given by l-'red- llorst, of the post office alley livery stable, that Adry llavward hired a horse at 0 p. ni. on, that very date and returned it at 10:30. This would hnvc given him time to take part in the hold-up of his brother and Miss Ging and Miss Vedder, with whom he was driving.. The defense expects to show by other witnesses that Adry was seen near the scene of the robbery that night. The defense also devoted some time Wednesday morning to proving that Miss Ging had actually contemplated going into the millinery business on "xicollet avenue, an 'iutention_ which, would explain her desire to borrow money from. Harry Hayward. The agent of the property, to whom she talked of renting, and two ladies for whom she had worked, and to whom she had talked of her project, gave the evidence. A watch repairer in the employ of Eustis Brothers testified as to the leaving for repairs by Harry Hayward of the watch which figured in the Blixt story of the tin-box episode. The watch was left on the morning of the day of the murder. There are renewed fears that the jury may not be able to stand the long strain of the trial successfully, o'-'uror S. H.
