Wah!M^t^^.i. Jan. 31. The senate rrh^sua committee reporUit hack with sm*md^menu the house hill to provide for taking^the eleventh and suhsrquent cemmses.^Mr. Sherman, from the committee on fm-^eifiu relathiiis, re|Mtrteil two ameiKluieuts^to the diplomatic und consular appropr^^tion bill t4^ protect American Interests lu^Samoa. The concurrent reHolutlon lor^c.unit iiik' the electoral vote tn joint session^Feb. IS was passed. ItlodKelt, N. J.,ex-^plain. .1 he was paired with Kiridlebcofer^on the taritT hill when It came to a vole,^believing Klddleberiter was in favor ol the^bill, instead of op|^osed to it, hm appeared^t^^ i^e the fact. The senate bill grant^ink^ the I''it Mom A ttoulben^railroad right ^^t way through^part of the Crow reservation in^Montana passed. Mi* nnaifs anti trust^bill was taken up and amended hy striking^out of the first section the words ^that^competes with any similar article upon^whi' h duly Is levied by the I'nlted States,^^snd Inserting the words ^in due course of^trade.^ Sherman then proposed the bill^go over till Ui-morrow to allow Hoar to of^^fer amend ments to 1L 1 loar said lie^wanted to make it more stringent. The^bill went over till to morrow, 'the senate^took up the hniiHe hill for the relief of state^national hanks in the matter of cotton^eiatasBi it occasioned considerable discus*^^ioft the i|iiestion being as to the loyalt) of^the hanks at the time tin- cotton was tsken.^After some debate the hill passed.
Kryeasked unanimous consent that the^spcml older (the racittc railroad funding^hill hhould he given urecedencw over other^*|.. orders; agreed to. Krye said a vote^would l^e taken on the hill this week. Tin-^hill was then taken up and laid aside as^unfinished business. Chandler gave m^tice^he would, not later than Friday, ask the^senate to take action on his resolution pro-^posiiitf an investigation of the election in^Louisiana last April. The sMsietef Co^lumhla appropriation hill was taken up,^but not disposed of, and after an executive^session the senate adjourned.
TMhouse went into committee of the^whole on the sundry civil bill. Lawler,^Illinois, offered an amendment approprial^ing S60.000 tor reuairs and preserving the^custom bouse building at Chicago: agreed^to. handes, Illinois, moved to strikeout^the clause of the bill providing foi the use^of steam presses in the bureau of engrav^^ing and printing and that a royalty shall^l^e paid not exceeding one cent per thous^^and iuipressious. A long discussion ensuexl^as to the relative merits of hand ureases^and steam presses, during which nutter-^worth said the organization uf hand plate^printers had declared war upon the ateam^machines ai d determined they should go.^If they ought to go on their merits let them^go, but it they ought nut to go on their^merits, the tact that these gentlemen de^^sired them to go was not the slightest rea^^son for putting tin in nut. He had been^told that the meu wno worked on steam^presses wete hissed and annoyed while go^^ing to and from work by hand printers. If^*hTs were true, the secretary of the treas^^ury and superintendent of the bureau^ought to be impearhtd for not vindicating^the rights of a mau in this country^to earn his bread. A coiuuni^tee had been appointed hy the^house to ^o^.k into the character of the work^of steam presses, and he was soiicitlmis to^know wh^ther witnesses testified as they^would have testified had It not been for a^reik'ii of terror established in the bureau,^If such a reign hail been established. Muitr^a eolkMBf ensued between I*utter vorth,^Koran (0MO) and Kar^|uhar in which^the latter spoke for the orgam/eu n.-^chamcsof the land who had, he said, In *n^the men who built and kept up the In^^dustries of the country. Hutterworth sal t^lie approved of combinations of labor, hu^he dfdiiot approve of force being used h^exclude any American from anv walk In^life or calling, it was needless for^BMsbl rs to shut their eves to the I net that^some ol those organizations starved wid^^ows and orphans Into compliance with^their tu hen's. He had not suggested the^Knights of Labor were opposed to the In^^troduction of labor saving machinery; but^he knew some times misguided men, un-^der the belief that it was against their in^^terest, had protested and fought even to^the use uf violence against their Introduc^tion. All that he insisted upon^was that tl I members should stand^hy their deliberate iudgine^t and not^yield to tbe suggestion that it would^shorten their nolillcsl lite not to do so. He^... DM d the right of any association to say^to a boy that he should not learn the trade^of his father. Against that right he in^veluhed. So long as huckstering politi^^cians yielded ti. the trade winds set In mo^^tion here or there, just so long^would tree institutions u in dan^^ger: not because men did not know^better, but because they did not have the^courage to do better. If tins house ha^l^done Its duty the children of thr men who^had made and kept this repubhc would not^Se crowded out of employment hy the ship^loads of Iszzuoni from Kumpe who landed^dally on our shores. tfoBM Immigrants^brought Im energy, thought some money,^moral make-up and manhood, but we were^having thrown upon our shores every hour^men who represented nothing upon food's^esrth except an appetite, a stomach, and an^alimentary caual. Congress had not dared^In the presence of political necessity to^stand by the homes of the country. He^hop* d this congress would do so before the^session was over, hut he protected that no^association In the world had the right to^punish hun and starve htm to death be^cause he hired this man or that.
Craiu,of Texas, said he was surprised to^see the distinguished representative of the^republican party, which ha^I posed as the^friend and champion ol the lalK^rtng men.^because they had done what capital had^dime organized themselves for protect ion.^It was by organization that they had done^what capital had done, organized^themselves for their own pro^tectlon. It was bv organization^that they compelled their employers^to pay the rate of wages they demand, and^were able to obtain tbe present rate. Karon^har offered an amendment that none of the^money appropriated should he used In the^repair of steam presses and White, Vew^York, an amendment fixing the royalty at^$1 per thousand impressions. Pending a^vote on any amendment the committee^rose and the house adjourned.

Indianapolis*Jau. 28. -The moat In^^teresting event of the day was the visit of^John Wannamaker, of Philadelphia, to the^president eh ct. lie wss cordially wel^corned by both ^ieueral and Mrs. Harrison^aud in a few momenta they sat dow n at^lunch. It was tbe first meeting between^the general aud his guest, who came alone.^After dinner they retired to the back par^lor and engaged in conference. I*^one of the longest held by^general since his election, li^fully three hours, showing they must have^had a good desl to talk about No third^party was present at the conference, which^concluded at 4 o'clock Mr. Wannamaker^re entered hi* carriage and was driven to^the depot Here he was corraled by cor^respondents, to whom BS stated he could^not talk on political malters. In reply u^^a question whether he had been tendered^a place in the cabinet, he replied that ^ o n.^Harrison could answer that question with^better propriety than he could, aud would^not state whether he was tiotng abroad, or^making an equivocal answer as though he^might or might not sail for Kuroue. He^was lu a very pb*asant frame of mind and^said he was greatly pleased with both ^ o-n^and Mrs. Harrison. Mr. Wannamaker left^on the 5 p. ru. train. There^Is a wide divergence of opinion^here among the wise men as to the cause or^result of Waimamaker's visit. Col. John^(\ New and other well posted gentlemen^are of opinion that he was called here to be^tendered a cabinet berth. There are other^gentlemen, however, who hold quite the^contrary view and think his coming Is a^pretty sure Indication that he will not be^Invited Into the cabinet

SomaIntaraatlng Information from Montana's^Qardan Bpol.
MajorPeter Konan, the vetern agent of^the Flathead Indian reservation, always^has something of Interest to say regarding^the reservation, when properly approached.^The major holds the distinction of being^ruie of Montana's pioneer journalists, and^therefore whatever he says goes as gospel^truth. An Inukprndknt reporter found^him In a pleasant mood at the Cosmopoli^^tan last night. Major Konan conslderi the^Mat head reservation the moat picturesque,^spot in the 1'nlted States, and when dilat^^ing on Its beauties grows poetically a|a^^o uent. It is t he garden spot of^Montana, with its hills and dells,^raviues and rivers, lakes and water^^falls and cataract with a fall in some places^of 1,000 feet It is the poet's haven and ths^hunter's paradise. Major Konan says that^many distinguished people from the Fast^spent several weeks In hunting In the Flat^^head last fall, among whom were the Irish^earl of Caliadoti and CapL Kadcllff. Last^year Sir Kdward Itodda, of Kngland, visit^^ed the reservstlon for the sole purpose of^securing specimens of Rocky Mountain^goat and had the good fortune to kill thir^^teen, which he took back to Kngland and^had idem set up In his palace. He recently^had the group photographed and sent^Major Kouan one of the pictures.
'Ihereservation, Major Uorian says, con^^tains l,:ioo,iioo acres, and Is inhabi^^ts! hy about 2,000 Flathead Indians, si.^Ignatius school, the largest Indian school^In the country, has 210 students, who are^instructed hy the missionary fathers and^sisters; the former look after the boys and^ihe latter take charge of the girls. School^Is In session all the year around, excepting^a short vacation lu summer, and the major^feels proud to state that he can produce as^good scholars as can be seen anywhere, in^similar branches of learning. The tuition^Is uot confined to text books alone, but es^^tablished schools of all kinds of trades re^^ceive atU'iitlon and towards which the pu^^pils show great aptitude. The principal^mechanical branches taught are, carj^enter-^Ing harness and saddle making, grist mills^and saw mills, black smithing, and all kinds^ot gardening and farming, lies ides these^the school has a brass band of twenty In^struments which, for the production of^good music, will not take a back seat for^any musical organization in Montana.
Thenew college In course of erection,^Mr. Konan statas, Is fast hearing comple^^tion. It Is constructed of w^mm1, Is three^stories high and when completed will .cost^in the neighborhood of 860,000. It Is being^built hy the missionary fathers under con^tract with the government,the fathers to re^^ceive, besides an appropriation from con^^gress, tn much annually for the tuition of^each pupil.
Thehealth of the tribe has been excep^^tionally fine the past year, which hai^proven a very prosperous one. The In^dlans all live in (heir owu bouses, a num^her of which were erected during 1HKN, and^the farming products were greatly in^creased as compared with former years^the principal productions being wheat^oats and vegetables of all kinds. There^arc several prosperous Indian stockraisers^ou the reservation, three of whom, Mr. Ko^^nan estimates their wealth to be between^815 000 and 820,000 each.
MajorKonan says of the new mission on^the Crow reservation that Kev. L. Van^OOTBsj ^ I . the pioneer missionary and^early parish priest of Helena, who has had^charge of St Ignatius Mission on the Flat^^head reservation for the past fifteen years^was recently transferred to St. \avler,^( row agency. This mission wss estab^^lished last year by the Catholic mission^arles, and Is meeting with good sueeesa^The Indians number about 2,800 They^know hut little about religion, but they are^well disposed snd very Friendly towards^the missionaries. The fathers have already^over one hundred children at their school,^and it is reported that both the boys and^the girts are doing splendidly, considering^the short time thev nave been under tub^tion. St. Xavier Mission Is situated In^bleak, c old country, and though It Is con^sldered a nice location, It by no means^compares with In beauty St. Ignatius, lu^Missoula county. Fort Custer u twenty^three miles north of the Mission and Is^commanded by'tten. Dudley.
Incompany with OoL Hroadwater, Major
Konanleaves for Hutu* this morning, but
willreturn lu the evening.
About8 JO o'clock laat evening 'Paint^er^ Eng, a booster employed at Crosby A^Fisher's gambling rooms, escaped with^$240 which he ^won^ at the high for luck^game, the same layout at which Murphy^recently got away with a hundred dollars.^The scheme was successfully worked by^the ^Painter.^ and although Flaher had a^vague apprehension that something was^wrong, he was squarely beat at his own^business. A reporter for the Indbpbmd-^ent approached a booster for some en^^lightenment on the subject, but was^snubbed by that distinguished Individual.^The scribe then stepped Into the den, with^the aforesaid booster a close second.^A number of dissipated tramps and hard-^looking characters were carelessly loung^^ing around the games and noticing the^harmless looking young man enter, whom^they mistakably thought had a few dollars,^several began to ^win.^ One booster the 1^reporter noticed taking from a plethoric^tin box a handful of silver dollars, and^walking up U^ a game began playing his^money with the recklessness of a Woleott.^Hoost -r No i in the meantime ^put the^proprietors on^ t. the unoffending young^man and one of the latter personages^stepped up, but the reporter broke the con^^versation with ^C^mh1 evening, sir, are you^the proprietor
**Naw,1 ain't the perprietor.
Mr.Fisher, the proprietor, then chipped^In with:
What'nh^1 do you want In here^
Thereporter Informed him he was look^^ing for news, and having heard that one of^bis employes absconded with funds he^would like to bear if such was the case.
Naw, there ain't been no money stole^here,^ replied the proprietor, ^and If there^has 'been It wasn't your money, no bow.^What nsper arc von reportln* for^
Onbeing told the Ini^ki^kni^knt, he
f;rewvery warm In the collar, and in^auguage more aggesalve than polite said^^Weil, look a here; that d^n Inhhin^dent has lieen paying toomuch attention^to my business lately and 1 think the best^thing you can do is to get out of here right^ofT.'r
Atuotly gang of roughs had by this^time gathered around the item chaser, only^waiting the signal to forcibly eject him.^Hut he assured the lusolent little proprle-^u^r that he was making no disturbance and^would go out when he felt like it.
Ifyou don't get out of bete In a minute^you'll find yourself on the sidewalk and^there will ls^ a disturbance.
ItIs needless to add that the reporter felt^like getting out In a hurry, so bidding the^oroprteUir good night and plessant dreams^he left, congratulating himself that he es^^caped alive, as he never before got Into^such a tough looking crowd.
Mr.Fisher was of course In any thing but^a pleasant frame of mind over the loss of^his 8240. The way It happened was that^the booster brought a ^sucker^ Into the^room and ^worked^ him at the high for^luck game; the ^sucker'' lost of course and^the bo.^ter won. After the '^sucker^ lost^abqut S10 he quit, while during the same^time Kng scooped In $240, ana left the^place. The ^booster^ understanding bis^business followed htm. Together they^walked down Main street with Mr Fisher,^who suspected something wrong, bringing^up the rear at a respectful distance. They^stopped In front of a sa^^loon on the corner of Sixth avenue^where Fisher joined them. The sucker^was posted and acted in a manner which^led Fisher to tadleve the booster was work^^ing bis man In grand atyle. It was un^^doubtedly the Intention of the ^Paluter^^to skip w bet) he got down Maiu street, but^as he noticed Fisher following he changed^his tactics and after taking a drlnc all^three retraced their steps up town to play^some more, i hey did not enter the Kldo-^rado this time, hut stepped Into a gambling^house three doors below. At this place the^^sucker^ had occasion to walk to the rear^and the booster not to lose sight^of his man went out with^him. A moment IaU*r Fisher went out^hut there was no sign of the booster; he^iiad skipped, (ireat Mm motion followed^as the very clever Mr. Fisher realized he^was duped. Three or four trusted em^^ployes of his were at once sent out to skir^^mish for the absconder, but at last ac^^counts the ^Painter^ was not caught. The^only way the money can be recoverd Is to^forcibly take it from Kng if found, ss the^decision In the Murphy case leaves tr ^^sure thing games without any recourse to^the law.

Aneffort is being made to have McKen-^zle of Anaconda, and Hilly Hawkins come^together In a twenty round contest, the^fight to be also conducted under the aus^^pices of the Clipper club.
Areport Is current that a local sport Is^corresponding with eastern thumpars to^Induce one of them to come out here and^^do up^ Duncan McDonald, but as Dune,^vowed not to enter the ring again,^when he joined the army of Henedicts^about a year ago, any effort to force him^will prove futile.
Areport comes from San Francisco that^Jas. Harry, who figured conspicuously In^sporting circles In this city about a year^ago, is now serving out an elghteeu year^sentence in the San (Jjueutin penitentiary^for stealing. Harry was tn Hutte about a^month ago and bilked some Frenchmen^who backed him tn a tight with McKeuzie,^of Anaconda, lie shortly afterwards left^for San Francisco, from where he origin^^ally came. It Is said that while on the^train be robbed a passenger of $l,noo. The^passenger was a clever one, however, and^instantly suspected Harry, hut instead of^accusing.hin: h^ ^ i^ minted him with the uews^of his loss, saying he thought he left the^money at a hotel. He became confidential^with Harry and told him he Intended tele^^graphing back to have the hotel proprietor^search for the money, but he wss really^telegraphing ahead to San Francisco to^have an officer In readiness to arrest Harry,^which was done as soon as the place waa^reached. The money was all recovered. It^Is said, and as a thief fares as badly as the^average murderer in California, Harry was^sentenced to eighteen y ears at hard labor.
