Mr. Cox, of New York, endeavored to pro
pound some inquiries, but his voice was lost
amid cries for the regular order, and in the din
and uproar that followed, with Atkins, Eden
and other members all trying to make them
selves heard, the question was seconded.
The conference report was then agreed to
yeas 150 nays 98.
Consideration of the internal revenue bill
was then resumed, the pending question being
on the amendment offered by Mr. Townsend.
After discussion, the remarks for the moat
part being inaudible in the confusion, the
amendment was rejected.
A -message was received from the Senate an
nouncing the passage of a concurrent resolu
tion extending the session until Thursday
next. (Shouts of no, no.)

age of the bill as formerly provided. Adopted.
Mr. Foster offered an amendment providing
that the tax on tobacco shall be collected at
the rate of 24 cents per pound until 1900. He
said it was perfectly evident that the bill could
not pass this season. If this matter were car

aster to that interest. He appealed to the
gentlemen who favored a reduction to settle

Mr. Knott, chairman of the judiciary com
mittee presented his views in opposition to the
report of the committee on the Kimmell bill
and the resolutions of the Maryland legislature
on the subject of the Presdential election. He
said he would be content himself to have the
paper printed in the record, but some gentle
men desired to have it read, and if there was
no objection he would read it. He then stepped
to the clerk's desk and was about to read his re
port, quite voluminous, when Mr. Tucker ob
jected to that consumption of time until after
the tobacco bill should be disposed of.
Mr. Sprmper moved to suspend the rules in
order to extend that privilege to Mr. Knott and
the motion was agreed to. Mr. Knott there
upon read the paper, the tenor of which has
been already indicated. Knott holds that the
great underlying question to be determined
was not the one which the committee seemed
to consider paramount to all others. It was
not merely whether the present incumbents of
the Presidential and Vice Presidential offices
should be disturbed, but it had a wider range
and reached to an infinitely profounder depth.
It was true it might incidentally affect the
title of a couple of citizens to the honors and
emoluments of certain high and important of
fices now claimed by them, but it also involved
the dignity and sovereignty of thirty-eight in
dependent and coequal States, as well as the
rights and liberties of forty millions of people.
The conclusion of the report is in these words:
Let the representatives of the people teach
the people by a solemn resolution that posses
sion is better than right, and usurpation
stronger than law that returning boards are
supreme, and that the law is voiceless, then,
indeed, will the people realize that the law has
abdicated, and that force has besn enthroned,
and then will the country indeed become Mexi
ennized, force will be resorted to to redress
wrong as well as to sustain it, and recourse will
be had to the sterner arbitrament of the bullet,
and after usurpation shall hive succeeded
usurpation, anarchy will come like night and
seal the fate of this great republic forever.
Mr. Hewitt (N. Y.) presonted the report of
the conference committee on the army appro
priation. He explained the report and said in
regard to the pause comitatus clause, "we have
this day secured to the people of this country
the same great provisions, which, after a strug
gle of 200 years the commons of England secur
ed for Great Britain. (Derisive laughter on
the Republican side.)
The report was agreed to, yeas 142, nays 55.
WASHINGTON, June 15.At the evening see.
ion Mr. Ward offered a resolution providing
VOLUME I. *ST. PAUL, SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 16, 1878. NUMBER 153.

on this the conferees were directed to yield,

ence committee was then adopted, and the
speaker appointed the same conference com
The House then resumed consideration of the
internal revenue bill. Mr. Hewitt, of New
York, offered an amendment for the establish
ment of the bonded warehouses for the export
of tobacco. Adopted.
Mr. Harrison offered an amendment estab
lishing an income tax ranging from one per
cent, on incomes of over $2,000, up to 10 per
cent, on incomes of $400,000.
Points of order were made against the amend
ment, but were overruled by the chair.
At the conclusion of the reading of the
amendment. Mr. Harrison inquired whether if
he withdrew the amendment the House Would
allow a separate vote to betaken on the income
tax bill. (Shouts of regular order never 1 ob
ject to the withdrawal.)
After a lively discussion and amid much
confusion a vote was taken on the amendment,
and though Harrison encouraged his friends
with exclaiming, "Up, friends of the people,"
it was defeated on a division 56 to 106. The
yeas and nays were demanded and ordered by
the Republican side of the House and resulted
yeas 94, yeas 139. This cannot be considered
as a test vote, as many Democrats who other
wise would have voted for the proposition
voted against it, fearing it would imperil the
passage of the hill.
Mr. Burchard moved to strike out the eight
eenth section of the bill, prohibiting the as
sessment of a tax upon insolvent banks.
Pending action and amid great uproar and
confusion the House adjourned.

BEFORE THE POTTER INVESTIGAT-
The Secretary of The Louisiana Electoral
College Before the CommitteeSome
Explanations About the Forged Certifi
cates-Kellogrg lecline to Appear for
WASHINGTON, June 15.The Potter commit
tee resumed its session to-day, and H. Conquest
Clarke, formerly secretary to Governor Kel
logg, and now in the internal revenue depart,
ment, was examined regarding the Louisiana
certificates. He recognized the first and sec
ond set of certificates in possession of the com
mittee as the ones prepared by him. Ander
son having stated there was an error in the cer
tificates, Governor Kellogg requested witness to
examine them. Witness was present when
Gov. Kellogg signed the second set of certifi
cates and had himself sealed them up and for
warded them to Washington. He also sealed
the first set and handed them to the district
judge. All the signatures of the first set were
Bigned in presence of witness. Witness did
not prepare the messenger's authority charged
with delivery of the second set of certifi
cates. He was of the opinion that the au
thority which the bearer of the second set of
certificates presented was the authority pre
pared for the messenger of the first set, Gen.
When the committee reassembled, Clarke
testified he was under the impression he also
saw Brewster sign the second set of certificates
and that the gentleman signed in the com
mittee room and not in the Governor's office as
Brewster testified yesterday. He had read a
statement in a Cincinnati paper to the effect
that some of the signatures of the Louisiana
HAD BEEN FOBGED,
and thought he clipped the paragraph from
the paper and subsequently enclosed it in a
letter to Governor Kellogg, inquiring what it
meant, but he had never received a reply to the
letter. Never heard anything while in New
Orleans of the so-called Sherman letter. In
consequence of objection made by Governor
Kellogg and the handwriting in the first set of
certificates, witness had caused a number of
extra copies to be made by a clerk in the office
writing a plainer band, he, the witness, there
fore had a number of certificates in excess of
those required for use of the electoral college.
After further unimportant testimony, witness
was excused and
was recalled, remaining on the stand but about
five minutes, when Chairman Potter announced
that he had requested Senator Kellogg to ap
pear before the committee, but had received a
verbal message from him saying he could not
comply with the request at present.
The committee adjourned until Monday.

Frank Bromskey, a Bohemian shoemaker,
while engaged at about 6 o'clock yesterday
evening near the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.
Paul depot, at tho foot of Jackson street, in
hunting for drift timber, discovered the body
of a newly-born female child floating in the
water. The coroner being at once notified,
made an examination of the.corpse, but discov
ered no marks of violence upon it, thereby
leading to the inference that the infant must
have been cast into the water shortly after its
birth, probably with the intention of hiding
some one's shame. No inquest was held, and
the coroner directed that the remains be inter
red in Oakland cemetery, at 7 A. M. to-day.
