Introduced lu tho Houso and referred

port as adopted will bo submitted to tho
"For years tho people of tho United
States In great numbers, with en
thusiasm nnd unanimity, In various
ways, by petitions, resolutions In the
public press nnd through their repre
sentatives in Congress, havo signified
their earnest dcslro that tho 400th au
nlversnry of the discovery of America
by Christopher Columbus should bo
recognized and commemorated by this
nation in 1802. Thoy would havo this
generation record Its gratoful apprecia
tion of tho genius and tho courageous
faith of litis great man, whoso life and
services con ti United bo much to
tho pi ogress and elevation of man
kind, and not only tho pcoplo of
this country, but pcoplo of tho world
should be invited to participate
nnd contrlbuto lo tho grandeur of tho
celebration: It is indicated by a recog
nized public sentiment that this cele
bration shall includo appropriate cere
monies and n World's Fair and exhibi
tion unsurpassed and unequalcd If pos
sible by any national commemoration
that has preceded it.
"Tho commltteo In unanimously pre
senting the report believe that tho
celebration proposed is a deserved
recognition of tho great services of
Christopher Columbus, and that It will
lead tho pcoplo of tho United Statos
to appreciate with greater patriot
ism the boncflcenco of frco
institutions and tho achieved national
greatness of their country, nnd that by
the interchange with our own pcoplo
nnd thoso of other nations, who will bo
brought together tho material Interests
and prosperity of all will bo pro
moted." With this report aro the two bills
heretofore outlined, one applicable to
Washington and the other to cither of
tin- mhiv linen cities.
Accotnpanyine the report is tho fol
"Jlcfohctl, That on the day following
the close of the debalo upon tho

immediately after tho leading of tho

When tho Houso met at 11 o'clock
to day the array of empty seats was
noticeable, not more than two dozen
membcis being present. Protests were
cntcied by Messrs. Relliy of Pennsyl
vania and Stewart of Georgia against
tho adoption of the proposed codo of
Mr. Raines of Now York upheld and
defended the action of Speaker Bccd.
Sir. Barnes of Georgia, referring to
nn assertion that had been made on the
Republican side that the Jcifetsonlan
system of government was to be over
tlnown and the Hamiltonlaii system in
augurated, said that no ono could go
farther than ho in admiration of Hamil
ton, but he could not forget that
Hamilton's system had been unquali
fiedly rejected by tho fatheis of tho
Republic, llo objected to the removal
of obstiuctlon which had for a century
stood as a ban lev against the public
Treasury, against subsidies nnd men
who would build up tho monoy power.
Mr. Kelly ot Kansas, in iletenulng
tho Speaker's course, alluded to tho
reference by Mr. Reed to tho ruling of
Governor Hill wheu presiding over tho
Nuw York Senato, and said that If in
tho course of human events tho Repub
lican pat ty put the name of Thomas
11. Reed at tho head of the Presidential
ticket in 1892, nnd tho Democratic
paity put nt tho head of its ticket tho
namo of David B. Hill, tho Democrats
would go before tho country aud claim

Mr. Pendleton of West Virginia said
that while ho strongly dissented from
the mlings of tho Speaker, he had dono
bo in a gentlemanly manner. There
fore, ho was surprised to see in a

in his district a statement that when he
was unseated tho Democrats would loso

Mr. Kelly of Kansas sugcestcd that
this was a proper tlino to apologize.
Mr. Pendleton said that he had noth

him nt tho last election, and who would
voto for him at tho noxt, to know that,

Consideration of tho rules then pro
ceeded. Mr. Bynum of Indiana offered an
amendment piovidlng that when any
bill for tlio iuci caso of pension, or for
ginntingpenslons not formerly provided
for, comes up, It shall bo in order to
offer nn amendment providing by taxi
lion for tho payment thcicof.
The amendment was opposed by Mr.
Thomas of Wisconsin, who declared
that its object was to bury all pension
legislation in tho Houso.
Mr. Spluola denied this statoment,
and asserted that the Dcmocrallo sldo
of tho House would bo found as truo as
steel to the roal interests of tho veterans
of tho countty, but believed that a tax
should be placed especially for the pur
pose of paying pensions.
Mr. Allen of Michigan said ho was
glad this heinous amendment sprang
from tho brain of a gentleman trained
in Indiana politics, belonging to
i hat class of men who were 'poaco
men in war and war men hi peace. Dis
guised ns it might bo, this proposition
was intended lo thwart any nttompt to
nlloviato tho condition of soldiers by
any further pension legislation.
Mr. Clements of Georgia supported
tho amendment, and expressed a belief
Hint the soldiers did not demand ox,
travnganco in tho granting of ponslons.
Mr. Grosvcnor said tho amendment
was tho most antagonistic and hostile
proposition over mado on tho floor
of tho House, and ono which
tho soldiers of tho country thoroughly
understood. It had first been made
by Mr. Morrison of Illinois. Whero
was, that gentleman now? Gentle
men on the other sldo would havo
to go on record on this nmendment,
and if they voted for it tho trumpet of
tho Political Gabriel would never call
them to judgment ngain,
Mr. Bynum inquired why tho Demo
crats had not been put on lccord two
years ago on this very proposition, in
stead of filibustering against a voto.
Mr. Grosvcnor replied that there had
been no other way to dofcat tho blttor
hostility shown to tho soldiers of tho
country. When hostility to the old
soldiers was rifo filibustering was
Mr. Bynum said his record would
show that ho had been In favor of
every pension measure that had boon re
ported to tho Houso from n commit
tee, and ho was ready to voto
for every such measure; but ho pro
posed that thero should bo monoy in tho
treasury to pay tho pensions. After
further discussion tho amendment was
rejected yeas 00, nays 101.

Who Killed Ilonton.
Tho Washington people arc perfectly
familiar with tho killing of Adicr In
tho Marble Saloon by Frank Ward.
Tho man who committed this crime
made an urgent appeal through ills at

court for admission to bail. Men who
wcro qualified to give security to the
extent of $59,000 or moro for the ap

The indictment against Ward was for
murder, nnd It was dlscietlonary with
tho judgo, but he prcfencd to remand
the defendant to jail without bill, and
ho is there yet.
"You may not be familiar with the
Washington ciimlnal record," said a
well known attorney lo a Critic ic
poiter, "but just let mo give you a
uointer. If you will remember, Mc
Clelland, who killed Benton early in
January, was admitted to ball on Satur
day in tho sum of $2,500. McClelland,
if I understand right, has been Indicted
for manslaughter, which Is classed as a
bailablo crime. Tho record of the
clerk of tho Cilminal Court shows that
McClelland is charged with tho killing
ot j. u. iscnton, ana tuo sureties given
for his appearance aro Rosann Korts
and James Dripp3.
"Of course tho classification of the
ciimc as between Ward and McClelland
rested with tho giaiul jury, and tho
evidence introduced there rather gavo
tlio defendant tho benefit of the differ
ence between minder and manslaughter.
I am satisfied, however, that on tho
tiial It will bo shown that McClelland
not only alienated tho affections of Ben
ton's wife, but proceeded to very ef
fectually kill him nnd dcllbeiatclv load
him with cold lead afterwards. When

Colonel Robert Is tho last gentleman
In the world that ono would tako for a

and below tho medium height. Ho is
a bruuetto of pronounced type; his full
beard is n dark brown that is almost
black, and tho oyes that look out
through tho glasses of his spectacles aio
dark and large nnd thoughtful. Ho looks
moro like a professor of advanced
science than ho does like a colonel in
the regular army, nnd gives one tho im
mediate impression that he is a man of
great force of character and unflagging
energy nnd ono who will not como to
a final decision on nny matter until
he has examined it calmly aud con
scientiously. Immediately after Dr. TIndall had
administered the oath tho three Com
missloncrs retired to tho Board room,
and the District of Columbia again had

Tho meeting lasted only ashoit time,
and Ihe former organization was con

At 1 o'clock, in company with Major

Tho bridge is to be of iron, con

bo the broadest Btruclttro of Its kind in

to construct an avenue 150 feet wide,

miles down tho river. All the property
owners along the louto havo been seen
and lmvo checi fully signed a list signi

It is claimed by those in charge of
Ihe affair that the bridge is necessary
for the accommodation of the peoplo
of the District of Columbia and tho al
jncent counties of Maryland; that it is it

and Hint it furnishes n tliicct route to
