Washington,Jan. 3.-la the senate the^resolution heretofore offered by Voorhee*^calling lii|Min the secretary of the taterior^for a list of the homestead, timber culture,^and pre-emption entries to public lamis^canceled after the Issuance of the final re^^ceipt and ci rtihVate therefor during the^present administration for causes other^than voluntary relinquishment was agreed^to
Mitchell(dTered * resolution (agreed to)^calling on the secretaries if war and the^Interior department for copies of records^and papers relative to the at m^-e o4 volun^tatffg in Washington e*)d Idaho territory in^the \t/ IVrees war of 1*77.
Thesenate then resumed the considera^tlon of the taritf hill, tue pending question^be I tiki Vest's amend meM te paragraphing^to change the duty on cotton t lire ad, yarn,^werpd. etc , valued at not exceeding 25^eeau per pound, from lO cents imtikhh.i1^to 3s per cent ud valorem. After a speech^of some length from Vance, Vest'fl ameitfj^merit was rejeeted Ley the. usual parl^|vote,^yeas 20, na^s 24
Vestcalled attention to the other Hems^in paragraph IIS, hut said he would not of'^ler any amendment or ask any vote on^them, hut he would simply remark the^duty on these items was increased in order^to exclude all foreign competition, as far^as possible, so as to enable American man*^ufacturers to hold the market at whatever
Rricethey saw tit to impose. He moved,^owever, to amend paragraph 314, relating^to spool thread of cotton, by striking out^7 cents per dozen spools and inaerting 40^per cent, advalorem. lie quoted from the^statements made by the spool cotton man^^ufacturers before the tariff commission In^1HK2 and before the ways and means com^^mittee in 1K84, to show that they asked a^less rate of protection In 1KH4 than in 1nh2.^After a lengthy discussion the amendment^was rejected^yeas 18, nays 21. No fur^^ther amendment was offered Ut paragraph^814, nor was any offered to paragraphs S15,^81A or 817, all relating to cotton sloth.^Vance moved two amendments to para^graph SIN and one to 31W, all of which were^rejected. I'ugh then proceeded to address^the, senate In a set speech on^the tariff. In concluding his remarks^be adverted to the question of^race supremacy In the south, and aald as to^that there could be no concession or no^compromise among white people. Who^^ever was the friend of the white race In re^^gard to supremacy in government waa his^friend, irrespective of politics, and who^ever was the enemy of the white race on^the questions Involving race supremacy^was his enemy. The fidelity of the white^men to each other on the race queatlon has^been unfaltering and hound to prove Itself^in action on the side of maintaining the^actual supremacy of the white rsee in the^posaesslon and exercise of all governmental^powers. ^*ueh fidelity of white men to^each other in the southern states for such^purposes had txen established under the^dire necessity of self preservation, and^white men every where might rest assured^that no allurements of office aud no differ^^ence as to the taritf lawscouldever degrade^them to the recognition of negro equaliza^^tion.
Vancemoved to amend paragraph 330,^relating to stockings, by reducing the rate^from 36 to 30 per cent, advalorem. and^asked for the jeas and navs. Aldrlch ap^^pealed to Vance not to demand the yeas^and nays a* there was prohahly no quorum^present, and he wished to get th:ough the^common schedule to-da\, but Vance would^not consent, as he did not want the^schedule tinlahed to day. The senate then,^having disposed of three and a half pages^of the bill to-day, adjourned.
Onmotion of Toole, of Montana, the^senate amendment was concurred tn to the^house hill appropriating #33,000 to enable^the secretary of war to issue to the Kovernor^of Montana military stores for the use of^the militia of that territory. On motion of^McKenna, of California, the senate bill^was passed appropriating $3,h00 for the^relief of William K. Wheaton, ex-register,^and Charles II. Chaiuberlalu, ex receiver,^of the land office at .San Francisco. Heed,^Maine, reported a resolution i r Iding that^during the remainder of the present session^there shall be no call of states and terri^^tories on the first and third Mondays of^each month. These Mondays are what are^known as suspension days, and the ohjeci^of the resolution is to prevent the opponents^of thel'nion Pacific funding measure and^theOklahoma bill from filibustering against^an attempt to pass these measures under a^suspension of the rules by introducing^voluminous hills under the call of states^and consuming the day by a demand for^their reading In full. Heed demanded^the previous question on the adoption^of the resolution, which called^forth a vigorous protest from Anderson, of^Kansas, who has heen one of the chief an^tagsniits of the I'nloa Paciflc bUU. He^asked that two hours debate be allowed on^the resolution, but Heed declined to accede^tsthe request on the ground that he hail^teen requested hy the committee to demand^the previous question. Kandall, (Pennsyl^^vania), a mt^ r of the cotuiuittea rjOJ^rules, stated there had in en a division ia^the eornmittee upon the resolution. A rider^son demanded the yeas and nays on order^isg the previous qiiestioa, when no quorum^voted, the roll msclosiBg 114 Votes is the^affirmative and 2* in the negative, Randall^being the only inemlter of the committee^on rules voting with the minority. A call^of the house was ordered.
Thecall showed the presence of 171^members, elgst mors than a quorum, but^a margin too narrow, and proceedings un^^der the call were not suspended. The aer^geant-at-arms was dispatched marrentthe^absentees and the house drearily waited for^him to make a report. As this was not^forthcoming, at I o'clock the house ad^^journed.

ABrotherhood Committee and Bur.^lington Officials Bring the Big^Railroad Strike to an End.
TheOld Engineers to Be Qiven the^Preference When Vacancies Oc^^cur, and the Hatchet to Be^Buried Out of Sight.
Chk'aoo,Jan. S^ This evening the^Burlington ^strike^ was admitted by both^pin ties to the controversy to be practically^settled. The conference today between^the officials of the road and the committee^of nine resulted In an amicable agreement^on nearly all the points at Issue, and It la^contidently expected a complete under^standing will be readied to morrow morn^lug. The only hitch In the arrangements^for ending the strike was one of the minor^demands of the committee, which the of^^ficials did not feel justified in granting^without first consulting with President^Perkins and the directors of the company^lu Boston. They requested time, there^lore, to exchange telegrams with the^Itoston othclals and they have no^doubt that full authority will be^recet ved to accept an y propositi* in^of the committee that Is fair and reason^aide. When the committee of nine called^at the general offices of the Burlington this^morning, Vice Presidents Stone snd Peas
eywere waiting advices from Boston, and^asked that tiie Ctuiference.be dolsjed until^8 o'clock In the afternoon Chairman t'av^ener readily asseuted to this, aud at ihe^hour named he and his associates returned^and were received. They were iu session^from 8 o'clock until twenty minutes past 5,^when they encountered an obstacle in the^raising of a point which the Burlington^people had overlooked and were not pre^^pared to meet without further advices from^eastern headquarters. It was then decided^to adjourn uutll 10:Su a. m. to morrow. The^faces of the committee aud of the Burling^ton officials were wreathed with aintles^when they parted for the night
TheTimes will say: ' It la under^hUmhI that by the terms of the agree^^ment the idd Q engineers will^be placed again upon a square footing, In^^stead of being black listed by nearly all^the railroads in the country. The Burling^^ton itself will set an example by giving^the strikers employment in preference to
.tiers whenever vacancies occur, and by^burying completely out of sight the hatchet^which was dug up ten mouths ago. Both^Vice-President Stone and Chairman^Cavener declined to give any of the de^^tails of the meeting or the nature of the^conclusions.
TheBallet Essreesed Thatthe Members of Har^^rison's Oablnat Have Been Decided Upon
Indianatoms, Jan. 8.^ The chief Inter^^est here to-day centered lu the visit of Sen^ator HUcock, wao arrived from Washing^^ton at 12:80 and drove direct to the resi^^dence ol the president-elect, arriving about^1 o'clock, Just In time to partake of the^noonday meal. Luncheon over, the gen^^eral and his guest repaired to the library,^where they remained closeted together In^earnest conversation until 8:16, when the^senator took his leave. No third party^was present during the long conference,^therefore no one Is able to state positively^what passe.i between them unless one or^the other chooses to divulge it. lien, liar^11son talked freely of the visit to an Associ^^ated Press correspondent this evening, but^said nothing not already known.
Thesenator, whose carriage never left^the door during his long conference, drove^rapidly to the depot. Arriving there he^had to pass a cordon of reporters who lay^in wait. To their numerous inquiries he^simply said: ^Gentlemen, my visit was an^uneventful one. both politically and per^sonally.^ These are the winds three of^the correapendente who were present at-^trlbute to him. They agree that the dis^^tinguished gentleman was apparently lu a^disgruntled state of mind, either real or^assumed. When he boarded the train for^Cleveland His apparent til humor,^which is not chronic with him,^when considered in connection with the^general and complacent frame of mind In^which the writer found ^ien. Harrison only^an hour or so later, Is more significant than^the words attributed to the aenator. After^along day's conference with several dis^ilnguished public men, It would seem but^nature* that Gen. Il.trrtson should show^algns of fatigue and absence of h.s usual^urbanity; but on the contrary be was will)^out sign of worry. A good many of the^gentleman's friends believe the cabinet Is^about finished, and if these Incidents are of^any interest or value, they would seem to^strengthen this view of the situation.
Butthe day brought another senatorial^pilgrim lu the person of Mr. Plumb, who^arrived this morning from the west. Ills^conference with Gen. Harrison was feas^than an hour, and he left at 2 o'clock for^Washington In an Intel view Senator^Plumb said he m-reiy stopp. dover to have^a general talk with the president. w . i ||e^waa not pressing any name for a cabinet^position. Kanaai had no candidate,. He^was in fsvor of an extra session of con^gress aud believed the party and public^uecesalty would Induce President Harrison^to call congress together. He was In favor^of a vigorous and early investigation of the^colored vote In the south. He thought that^Blaine would alt at the head of the new^^ abinet-
Anothervisitor of prominence waa Hon.^Moses W. Field, of Uetrolt. If tie came^here with a special object he kept it to him^^self. He talked freely, however, and said^among other things he had no dnubt what^^ever out that Gen. Alger would be^one of President Harrison's cabinet. He^was equally confident in his opinion that^Blame would be aecretary of state.
NoFavors to Ask.
Inihanai'omh,Jan. 8.^Mrs. J. Kllen^Foster, the Iowa temperance lecturer, who^was at the head of the organization of re^^publican women during the late campaign,^arrived In the city to-day. She will call^upon Gen. Harrison to-morrow and con^^gratulate him. This afternoon Mrs. Foster^delivered a lecture to the ladies, wherein^she urged them to maintain their csmpalgu^organizations for the purpose of educating^women in political matters. Mrs. Foster^says she proposes to tell (ten. Ilanison^what the women did toward electing htm,^and asserts that many of the i ad lea secured^direct pledges of votes for the republican^candidates. ^We stand on the republican

Indianapolis,Jan. 8.^The announce^^ment from Washington today that the^president had withdrawn the nomination^of I,eon o. Bailey as district attorney for^Indiana aud substituted the name of Judge^Solomon Clay-pool, of this city, crested^great surprise. It is learned to-night thst^Judge Clay pool received an autograph let^^ter from President Cleveland last Thurs^^day, asking him to come quietly and Imme^^diately to Washington. lie left the same^evening and had a long conference with^President Clevrland and returned home^Saturday night. Not even Acting District^Attorney Bailey knew of Clay pool's trip to^Washington, and Bailey was loth to believe^to-night thst bis nomination had been^withdrawn.
ADecision by the Secretary of the interior In^Savor of California.
Wasminoton,Jan. 8. ^In the case of the^l' nitcd Slates vs. the Mate of California,^Involving the question of the right of the^state to Indemnity school lands to compen^^sate ior deficiencies in fractional townships,^made so by reason of swamp land found^therein, the secretary has reversed the de^^cision of the commissioner of the general^land office and sustained the validity of^said sections. The sections of this case^were spproved and certified to the state^prior to the act of March 1, 1H77, as laud In^^uring to the state under the act of Feb. 'JO,^1H5V, providing for school land indemnity^to compensate for deficiencies where school^sections were wanting, or where townships^were fractional for any cause whatever.^The commissioner held said sections in^^valid for the reason that they were based^upon alleged deficiencies In fractional^townships, caused by awauip found there^^in and held said sections for cancellation,^and directed they be disposed of under the^proviso of the second section of the act of^March 1, 1*77, which allows the purchaser^from the state to purchase laid lands of the^government where said selections were in^^valid and not confirmed hy the act of 1N77.
Inreversing this decision the secretary^held the state is uot entitled, as others, un^^der the language of the various acts pro^^viding tor indemnity for school lands In^the state of California, to make selections^lu lieu of swamp lands merely because they^are swamp and overflowed, hut holds that^under the statutes applicable to the state of^California, directing surveys In said state,^townships were made fractional by reason^of the existence of swamps and over^^flowed lands in the same manner and with^the same effect as In other states and re^^sulted from surveys being made fractional^by bodies of water, whether fresh or salt,^of such character as to be meandered and^i hereforesueb fractional townships, made so^hy reason id the survey thereof,f uruish a ha^sis for indemnity selections under the act of^Feb. 2fl, 1HM*. which provided for selections^to compensate deficiencies for school sec^^tions where sections sixteen and thirty-six^are fractional lu quality, or where oueor^l^oth are wanting by reason of the town^^ship being fractional or from any natural^cause whatever.
