Washington, Dec. 8.—At the opening of the senate session Hawley, ehalrman of the mllltnry affairs committee, Introduced n bill for the reorganization of the regular army. Hoar secured the Idoptlon of a resolution that a committee of seven senators be appointed to whom shall be referred that part of the president's message which relates to the celbratlon of the centennial of the city Of Washington as capital of the United States. At 1?:16 p. m., on motion of Lodge, the senate went Into executive session, nt which a long debate was held upon the subject of confirmation of the Hawaiian commls- Bloners. Started by Uoar, The debate was started by Senator Hoar, who made a vigorous protest against the practice of appointing senators upon such a commission. He said these senators were when appointed, acting under the direction of and became the duly authorized agents of the president, to carry out his Ideas and wishes, What became of their functions as senators, he ashed, when the report -they make, as In the case of the Hawaiian commission, came before the senate, a co-ordinate branch ot the government? In the case of the Joint high commission now negotiating a treaty with Great Britain, and the peace 'commission now In Paris, there were the same objections, but applied with greater force. Senators should hold aloof from such positions because their acts as commissioners were to be passed upon by themselves as senators, a very reprehensible practice in tht opinion of Hoar. Supporting the President. He intimated that senators, acting for the president as a commission, which, when dealing with a foreign country, had to act as a body, might be placed In the position of supporting a cause which they as senators would reject. The method of appointing senators on commissions was defended by Morgan and Platt of Connecticut, who claimed there was nothing inconsistent In so doing. The debate then became general, and the constitutional prerogatives of the president and the rights of the senate were discussed at length upon the legal and technical phase of the subject. DOINGS IN THE HOUSE. The Antl-Scnlping Bill Called Dp by Hepburn of Iowa* Washington, Dec. 8.—The bill to carry Into effect the recommendations of the international American conference by the Incorporation of the International American bank at the last session had }een made a special order for the day. out In th'e absence of Hill ot Connecticut, who had charge of the measure. Walker of Massachusetts, chairman of the committee on banking and currency, asked that It go over for one week without prejudice. There was no objection and it was so ordered. The resignation of Warren B. Hooker of New York, who has accepted a ludgeahlp In New York, was laid before :he house. Paynes of New York asked unanimous consent to consider the senate bill to amend the laws relating to American seamen, but Hepburn of owa demanded the regular order. This was the call of committees. The first committee called was the committee on nterstatecommerce and Hepburn called up the antl-scalping bill. Hepburn of- 'ered to make in arrangement regard- ng the time to be occupied in debating the bill. '. White of Illinois said there ivas opposition to the measure. Adamson of Georgia, who made the minority report, was absent. Bland of Missouri said he desired to raise the question" ot consideration, but the ipeaker announced that it was too late. Bland said that an Important bill like his should be debated at length and he objected to the offer of an hour on a side. All efforis to effect an agreement as to time failed and Hepburn was hereupon recignizrd for an-hour. He rlelded to Sherman of New York, who explained that the bill was very slml- ar to the one passed by the house dur- ng the last congress. The changes vei'e mainly restrictive upon cprpora- lons.

KAISER WAS DISAPPOINTED. Squalid Decay of Jerunaltim Shattered • Lone-Chorlnhcd mutton. Berlin, Dec. 8.—Disappointment was the dominant Impression left In the kaiser's mind by his visit to the holy land. Ills addres's to the evangelical clergy of Bethlehem, now first published, candidly expressed that feeling. He paid: "To describe the Impressions of the last few days, I must, say that I am, above all things, very disappointed. I did not want to say that here, but as I have heard that my court chaplain felt the same thing, I will not keep It from you. It may be that the unfavorable approach to the town of Jerusalem contributed to this, but when one sees the state of things al holy places, and what goes on there, It cuts Into one's heart. "Only the Christian life can make an Impression upon Mohammedans. Nobody can wonder If they have no respect for Christians In ecclesiastical matters, as the Christians are divided. They must be prevented, even by force, from quarreling with one another at this sacred spot." The emperor said since his return: "My visit to Jerusalem has shattered the dearest illusion of my heart. Its squilld and undignified decay are Indescribable." CALLS IN ALL STATE AIIMS. Sheriff at I'nna AI«o Withdraws nil '><•!>- uUea and Trouble In Feared, Pana, Ills., Dec. 8.—Sheriff Thomas J. Downey has succeeded Sheriff Coburn and his first act was to demand all the state guns In use at the mines, which he secured and turned over to Colonel Wells. Operators, however, have plenty of guns and having armed the negroes a serious outbreak Is liable to come at any time. Sheriff Downey also discharged all of the deputy sheriffs and Mayor Penwell will put on an extra force of police, which threatens to cause a clash of civil authorities. Reports are that union miners Intend capturing negroes as they go to and from the shafts and "make formidable examples" of them. In consequence Colonel Wells has his entire command on provost duty, parading every street and disarming all persons found with guns, Row Over Federal Prisoners. Columbus, O., Dec. 8.—The board of managers of the Ohio penitentiary and the United States government are tangled up in a dispute over Ihe maintenance of federal prisoners. During the Spanish War the penitentiary managers raised the price of boarding federal prisoners from 33 to 35 cents a day per capita, owing to the increased price of provisions. The government has declined to pay more than 33 cents In the future and the board declined to accept the cut. The Ohio officials announce that unless 35 cents per day Is paid for the federal prisoners they must pack their clothes and go. Firebug In a Tenement House. St. Louis. Dec. 8.—A tenement house at 1728 Franklin avenue, occupied by eleven families, aggregating sixty persons, was set on fire by some one unknown before sunrise, and but for the quickness of Claude Brown, a 10-year- old'boy living next door, who alarmed the occupants, many lives would have aeen lost. The occupants of the build- rig escaped In their night clothes. When Lhe Homes were finally extinguished It was discovered that the basement had been saturated with coal oil and set on fire. _ Farmers' Xational Congress, Fort Worth, Tex., Dec. 8.—The second day's session of the Farmers' National congress convened at 10 o'clock.

Counsel. Informed the court that this statement would show that after Mr. Marsh had assumed the presidency of the bank IIP found that there existed a deficiency In the bank of over $1,000,000. He had no doubt erred In covering this deficiency, but the load was too much for the bank to carry, and finally resulted In Its failure. No Profit to Marsh. Counsel said the defendant never profited one dollar through the bank's losses and that when he fled over seven years ago he had not with him one dollar of the bank's money. The court dismissed the matter by Informing counsel that he would remand the prisoner until Tuesday next, when he would Impose sentence after hearing counsel's plea. He, however, would not make this case an exception and would not go into any Investigation of the bank's affairs. He would merely listen to counsel's statement relative to defendant's acts with the object of determining the extent of punishment to be Imposed. ,. Gone to Search for A nil roe. Vancouver, B.
