New York feb. Nelson a. Filles gave out a statement after having denied several published interviews attributed to him.

At the time that i went before the War Board investigating committee i had Only received repins from 14 of the commanders. Now i have 30 reports. A they ail Tell the same Story.

He was asked what tribunal he had in mind or to whom he would furnish this proof and in reply said a i made that statement i response to the offer of the beef men to $100,000 for evidence of the truth of my allegations against their product. I looked on their offer As a Bluff and took that Way of answering it i have no tribunal in mind. I have the greatest abundance of evidence to support the charges i made and do not think that any part of the $1,000 need be spent in More general Miles has received a Telegram from colonel a. A.

Minority report on Hanna Payne shipping startling calculation. Instead of a cents i is claimed the figure will Hun into millions of dollars before All the cont met Are paid. Washington feb. 1. The minority report on the Hanna Payne shipping Bill was filed in the House of representatives. It was prepared by representative Handy of Delaware and is a severe and somewhat a Quot Ronal arraignment of Che measure and those who would receive bounties under it. The report says a this Bill is one that was prepared and brought to Congress by a voluntary committee of ship owners and Elp builders representing tile gentlemen who will i receive the Bounty which i the Bill proposes to give from the pub lie Treasury. The Bill As it is reported to the House is in almost the exact form and Grants to a Penny the bounties demanded by the gentlemen who Are to receive them. The Bill is therefore naturally and entirely satisfactory to the a interests which have organized this movement to secure the vast sums carried in the Bill As a gratuity to be used in carrying on their private business and enlarging the pro fits thereof. A the Bill provides not simply for bounties but for bounties which once granted cannot thereafter be taken away. If this Bill be passed the contracts will be quickly made and once entered into no future Congress can in Honor break them or refuse to make the necessary appropriations to them. To do so would look like repudiating a National obligation. A the 20-year bounties thus provided Are put in the Bill in the language of go Many a cents a but when the writhe metical calculation is made to find Bow big these bounties by cents will prove to be when the time comes to them we find that they must be figured in tens of millions of dollars. A by a careful and conservative estimate we find that the government will be obligated by the contracts Likely to be entered into during the first 12 months under this Bill to bounties amounting to More than $165,000,000. And this includes Only the shipping now in sight and the shipping which must be built will Cost probably not less than $400,000,000. A of this enormous Bounty the Lions share will go to the International navigation company. This company will receive in the aggregate More than $57,000,000. This strikes us As a monstrous proposition. In this Bill it is provided that a Man who builds a great and speedy Ocean Steamer shall be paid bounties in 20 years amounting to twice the whole Cost of the boat. A to build up once More a great merchant Marine should be one of the patriotic ambitions of american statesmanship. It can be done by taking off the shackles and giving american Enterprise. American Industry and american seamen shop an equal Chance. Everything needed in building and equipping a ship should be admitted free of customs duty. Ship supplies should also be on the free list. A this Bill a says the report in conclusion a is the offspring of Mere Bounty beggars and should be repudiated by representatives of both political parties. It is vicious in principle. It is not necessary for the rehabilitation of our merchant Marine to give hundreds of millions of the people s Money. The Bill is wholly failed to Tass. Little Rock feb. the House by a vote of 61 to 23, a Senate Bill appropriating $6,000 for immediate use by the state Board of health to stamp out smallpox in the state of Arkansas was Defeated. Seven Days ago governor Jones sent a special message to the legislature asking for the appropriation. The first levee. Dublin feb. first levee of the season took place and was largely attended.
