Gal- Inger fuvurutily reported Proctor's resolution providing for a committee of senators to visit Cuba and Porto Hlco with a view to ascertaining the condl- lons on the Islands and reporting them, with recornmomlatlons to the senate, jut on llnle's objection to present consideration, the resolution was placed in the calendar. On motion of Hoar t was ordered that on Fel>, 22, Immediately nfter the senate convenes, Wash- ngton's farewell address be read by Wolcott. A bill authorizing General A. 3. Bntew, of the United Slaleg army, to accept the decoration of the Legion of ionor conferred upon him by the presl- lent of the French republic was passed. A lilll to extend the time for the con- trucllon of a bridge across the Columbia river between the states of Oregon and Washington by the Oregon and Washington Bridge company was lass&d. Koinnrka by Teller. Teller in the course of a speech said hat the purchase of territory from Mexico after the Mexican war was >arallel with the present purchase from jpaln. In this case Mexico was pros- rate at our feet and we said "we want Gltte of your territory and we will pay ypu for It." We held It first by conquest and then by. purchase. No mater what was the provocation of the war that was the case. It was a great nd grand acquisition, he said, second nly to the Louisiana purchase which nnde the Mexican purchase possible. [•his was what we proposed to do with Spain. We had conquered her and now proposed to purchase some of her territory and pay her $20,000,000, a mere lagatelle. Teller c.a'd he would ask the people of the Philippines what they vanted In the way of government and give It to them. The sooner the people governed themselves the better. He jclieved Ihe people of Luzon capable of n.-lf -government. Will Nut 1'nrmlt Revolution*. In answer to a question by Tlllman, he said \ve would not permit revolu- lons like those which occurred in South America. Teller read a letter from Admiral Dewey saying that the people of he Philippines can be easily governed. He also read a portion of a letter from an army officer to the same effect. In Admiral Dewey's letter he said that he lad not the slightest difficulty In deal- ne with the Phlllpplnos. Teller "said hut he would have the people given all he encouragement possible and It they developed qualities of statehood he vould grant them that. At the conclusion of Teller's speech Elklns called up the bill relating to American registry ot wrecked foreign vessels. At 2 o'clock • the NIcaraguan canal bill was taken up and Caffrey addressed the senate, Puliigs In the Houae. At the opening session of the house Cannon called up the conference report on the army and navy deficiency ill! and moved Its adoption. De Armond of Missouri asked whether the reapproprlatlon of the balance of the 00,000,000 to be expended under the direction of the president would In any vay sanction or authorize the payment out of that fund of J100.000 each to Whitelaw Reid and Judge Day for eerv- ces as peace commissioners. Cannon said he knew nothing about It, and on his statement that this reapproprlatlon made no change authorizing such an expenditure the report was adopted. The house next took up the agricultural appropriation bill. TO RAISK MAINE AND COLON. ifuvy Department Doolde. to ISBUC Adver- tlHeiuenta for Bids. Washington, Dec. 21.— Secretary Long will soon Issue advertisements calling 'or proposals for raising the Maine and the Cristobal Colon In accordance with the decision of the board of construction, to which the matter had been referred. The uoard has had under consideration several propositions from engineers and wrecking companies, presenting feasible schemes for raising those vessels and delivering them at the New York or the Norfolk navy I'ard, without Involving the government n any expense unless their efforts were successful. It was, however. Impossible to moke any selection from the proposals, and In view of the fact that so many contractors of apparent trustworthiness were willing to put their confidence to the test in attempting to raise the ves- cels and running the risk of failure, the members of the board agreed that It would be advisable to have an open competition and award the work to the bidder who would be willing to accept the most reasonable compensation, other things being equal. In the advertise. ment suggested by the board' bidders will be Informed that they must furnish to the navy department satisfactory bonds In such amount that the government will be fully protected against lops through Incompetency or carelessness. _ 1'UOCLAMA.TIOM NOT YET SENT. Document Axertluir Control Over Philippine* Tu Do ItevUed. Washington, Dec. 21. —Contrary to tho general Idea In olllclal circles the president did not have a copy o^f the proclamation asserting control o'f the Philippines mailed to Major General Otis for promulgation at Manila. The draft of the proclamation Is still In Washington and will be read and perhaps revised by the president before being transmitted to General Otis. The Intention to mall U will be adhered to. Hgwevor, nobody here knows the date when the document will finally leave the hands of the government. It la regarded as Improbable that th« president will make public the text of the proclamation before Its promulga lion. In the several weeks that must elapse before the assumption of au thorlty over thu archipelago General Otis will endeavor to make 1 nn amicable arrangement with Agulnaldo through which the Filipino forces will lay down their arms. While the real reason for delaying the transmission of the proclamation IB not disclosed It Is bt-llevc-d that the president Is not willing to allow It to pass out of his hands until he has read the exact terms of the treaty of Purls con earning the Philippines There are several ofllclalN hero who think that for mal possession will not be asserted until all (he Bpanlsti troops liavo been withdrawn from thu Ulunds.

Pana, Ills., Dec. 21.—Pana was again thrown Into a state of Intense excitement by mysterious shooting on East First street.

The bullet, which was fired through an upstairs window of the residence of a non-union miner named Neal, who resides near Hashaw's residence, glazed young Rashaw.'s head and he was telled by the force of the ball. The bullet was from a Springileld rifle, which was taken from Neal by a squad of soldiers who made double-quick to the scene of the shooting. Citizens flocked to Neal's residence on hearing the report of the rille.

The}' were held up by soldiers and relieved of arms before being permitted to proceed to mine's stockade. The union miners are remaining quiet.
