IT WftS PASSED Sundry Civil Bill Carried Through Funds for the St. Louis Exposition. k. Memorial Bridge Between the City of WaHhiacton and Arlington Cemetery Provided For. WASHINGTON, May 31 At the conclusion of the session, lasting eight hours, the Senate this evening passed the sundry civil appropriation bill, which has been under considerataon for nearly a week.. An amendment, providing for the . appropriation of $5,000,000 for the Louisiana purchase exposition to' be. field in St. Louis, in 1903. was continued in the bill. An effort was made to reduce the amount to be appropriated.' but it was unsuccessful. The amendnunt was incorporated, providing for thw beginning of work on the Memorial bridge, between Washington and Arlington cemetery, to be erected in memory of the dead of both the Union and Confederate armies. tWhile the bill carries only $xcjmq for the project, it is expected, ultimately, to cot about $5,000,000. An amendment was also added to the measure, providing for the adjustment of certain claims of the states of New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware. California, Oregon and South Carolina. The passage of the sundry civil bill leaves only two general appropriation bills to be acted upon by the Senate the Military Academy, and the general oehciency measures. It is expected they will, be pased by Saturday night. THE CLARK CASE. Washington, May 31. The Senate committee on privileges and elections have reached an agreement with the friends of Senator Clark, of Montana. to allow the Senator's case to rest where it is. with the understanding that no further steps shall.be taken to have either Clark's or Maginnis' cre dentials refe-rcd to the committee, and that no further action shall be taken on the resolution of the committee concerning Senator Clark's election. FOR AN AMENDMENT. Washington. May 3t. The IIou?e. today, under a special order, adopted. after an exceedingly hot debate, in which the leaders on Doth sides charged each other in playing to the political galleries, entered upon the consideration of the resolution reported from the judiciary committee, proposing a con stitutional amendment, to lodge in Congress the power to "define, regu late, control, prohibit or dissolve trusts. monopolies or combinations. Under lb terms of the order today, "with a night session tonight, was devoted to debate, and tomorrow at 5 o'clock the vote is to be taken without an oppor tunity to amend. . . Saturday is to be devoted to the bill to amend the Sherman anti-trust law. The Democrats charged that the pro- posctt constitutional amendment was ohjcctionanie in every way so tnat it was a mere political pretext, that it was unnecessary and was proposed at the end of the session .for election pur pose in the coming campaign. The Kepubhcans repudiate the charge 01 bad faith. The constitutional amend ment requires a two-thirds 'vote to adopt it, or tyfr votes, with the present membership of the House. The Re publicans have only ibo votes, tiity less than the requisite two-thirds. BRYAN IN CONTROL. New Jersey Democrats Praise Him as Ineir tribune. Trenton. N. J.; May .it.

"George Titus a, farmer and stock rafeer. who live a few miles above -Leb anon, was shot yesterday by John Craft, a stcck buyer, lne dispute arose over the delivery of some cattle which Titus had sold, to Craft, and began Tuesday evening." Craft sent a mian to get the cattle and Titus refused to let them go unless they were paid for when delivered. On Tuesday evening Craft drove to the home of Titus and in a conversation some words passed between the men when Craft called Titus a liar, for which Thus slruck him in the face with) his" fist. i i j "Yesterday 1 afternoon" Craft and one of the men who were helping drive cattle, went ' to Titus place to ut the cattle, and after they hal been tamed out into the road and paid for. Craft repeated the words of the day before, and at the same jtime. acording to Titus' statement, held a revolver in his hand 1 in his coat pocket pointed at Titus.

May 28.-Edilor Statesman: TliC; work of the great Conference; will end tomorrow at 2:30 p. m. The final action on the amusement section) was taken This morning, which leaves the law of the church as it was. The debate on Saturday brought on the w.ldest scene-ever witnessed on the floor 0 a General Conference. The trouble is, In so large a body of men. there are those who have a very low sen.e of what is. proper, and feel inclined to treat serious questions with a di-gree of levity, not tolerated by the majority. J It was feared that the report of the committee would povoke a Witer debate, out an adjustment of widely diffeting opinions, in relation to Mr. AlcKinley's re sponsibility in setting aside tine Anti-Canteen bill, was wisely adjusted, and a storm was prevented: The minority report, which was the -same as the ma jority report except in its references to Mie I'rcswwrnt, was nnaiiy aiMJjmu. jvir. Dickey, chairman of- the committee, was wise in his management of the whole .matter, and though standing resilutely jfor the; majority report, was nuxlerate and manly in closing the debate. Gemral Odell. Givernor Shaw, of Iowa, jand . Judge Yates, ; recently nominated by the Republicans of Illinois for (.Governor, each attempted amendments calculated to modify the present and- past utterances or me church on; the entire question of temperance. But there was no distKisitinn upon the ! pirt of the Conference to submit to any modification, hence aH of -the projKised amendments were voted down with no uncertain voice. I believe, I am wkhin the' Ixiund of rhc facts in the case -when I -say, from the actions and utterances of the Gen eral Conference of 1900. the Metiliodist Episcopal church has enlisted in a war-, fare against licensed rum, which Is to be continued until the evil .is driven from every foot of soil over which "Old Glory" floats. The only difference existing, is a difference as to the best methd of carrying forward the fight. All differences in this matter will in time be adjusted, and the victory wilt be complete. -i J 1 The newly elected Bishops were consecrated yesterday at .3 p. -jn., in the Auditorium, before a large congregation. l am not able, yet. to report, which orie of the Bishops, will be stationed irt the Northwest. .
