aoelved from the House at 12:45 p. m., and was
at once referred to the Committee on Ap
piprlations and ordered printed.
Mr. Windom offered a concurrent resolution
postponling the time of final adjournment to
noon on Thursday, June 20, and said that It
would be impossible to get through with the
appropriation bills by Monday noon. He of
fered the resolution now, as Senatore might
be preparing to leave on Monday, and would
allit p to-morrow.
The Senate then took up the resolution of
the House asking an investigation of the
case of Edward O. M. Condon, and it was
A message was received from the House an
nouncng its non-concurrence in the Senate
amendments to the river and harbor bill.
Mr. Sargent moved to recede from the
Senate amendments and pass the bill as it
came from the House. The motion was re
jeoted-yeas 28, nays 86-and Messrs. Spen
oer, McMillan and Ransom appointed con
ferrees on the part of the Senate.
The post route bill, which was returned
from the House. with its objection that it
trenches upon the rights of the House in the
matter of raising revenue, was at once taken
Ujr. Ferry moved that a committee of con
lerence be asked.
A lengthy discussion ensued relative to the
rights of the two houses, and the question
was finally settled by the adoption of a reso
Iution for a committee of conference to con
fer with a like committee of the House touch
ipg the matters of difference and Messrs.
Ferry, Kirkwood and Maxey here appointed
The following bills on the calendar were
disposed of: The bill in relation to the Kansas
Pacifl Railroad, known as the Kansas Pa
Railroad funding bill; the bill authoriz
ing the construction of a first class light
house on Tillamoc Head Oregon; the bill to
amend section 3835 of the Revised Statutes
relating to deficiencies in the accounts of
Mr. Windom, from the conference commit
tee on the legislative appropriation bill, re
ported the non-agreement of the conference
committee. He explained that there could be
an understanding reached on the proposition
in relation to clerks in departments by mutu
al concessions and compromise, each meeting
the other half way. In the matter of the
Fourth and Fifth Auditors, the House would
concur. The main difference was whether
the Senate should exercise its judgment in re
lation to the number and compensation of its
own em loyess.
Mr. Thurman emphatically indicated his
intention to insist upon the Senate amend
ment in relation to its employees.
Mr. Bayard was surprised that after the
elaborate and protracted discussion of this
question in 1876, it should have ever been
Mr. Anthony also supported the amend
jnent and thought it due to the dignity of the
Senate that the amendment be insisted on.
Mr. Windom asked for the yeas and nays
on the motion to insist that the conference
.committee might know the feeling of the
-Senate. The Senate insisted on its amend
meats; yeas 59, nays Messrs. Coke and Mc
S'eer, 2, and a new conference was then or

lie Lands, reported back the memorial of
William McGarrahan with the recommenda
tion that the petition be denied, and that the
eomfnittee be discharged from its further
consideration, with leave to write out and
submit its report hereafter. So ordered.
Mr. Matthews entered a motion to recon
sider the vote by which the eight hour law
was postponed until the next session.
On motion of Mr. Sargent, the Senate, at
6:55 p. m., went into executive session, and
when the doors were again opened, adjourned.
After the journal had been read Mr. Reagan
moved to take up the Senate amendments to
the river and harbor bill, and refer them to a
committee of conference.
Mr. Waddell, of North Carolina, antagonized
this with a resolution to take up the post
route bill. He couldn't understand why Mr.
Reagan could be recognized, and he should
not. He had been trying to get the floor, and
he did not think that Mr. Reagan was the
next on the list.
The Speaker said that Mr. Reagan had
made a motion which was in the interest of
Mr. Waddell thought that the post route bill
was as much in the interest of the public as
the other bill.
The regular order having been demanded,
the Speaker said that the real regular order
was the consideration of the business which
came over from Tuesday night, which was the
bill for the relief of the heirs of the late Rear
Admiral Dahlgren. The latter bill was passed,
and then ensued another struggle for the floor.
Mr. Reagan wanted it for the river and
As against the other motions Mr. Mills
moved to go to business on the private calen
Mr. Waddell again said that Mr. Reagan
was not on the list to move to suspend the
The Speaker, however, recognized him, and
the bill was referred to a conference commit
tee by a vote of 140 to 25.
Mr. Mills' motion to go on with business
on the private calendar was then defeated.
Yeas 102 nays 134.
Mr. Waddell then moved to take up the
post route bill, and refer it to a committee of
Mr. Eden rose to a parliamentary inquiry,
d wanted to know whether the Brazilian
as idy was not in that bill.
Mr. Waddell (interrupting) said that was
lot a arliamentary request.
ThekSpeaker said he had not heard the
<gentleman sufficiently to know whether it
was a question of order or not.
Mr. Waddell (sarcastically): I was not
aware before that the Speaker was deaf.
Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, rose to what he
said was a question of privilege and pro
oeeded to argue avainst the authority of the
Senate to put amendments on the post route
Mr. Waddell, Mr. Mills and others objected
-that it was not in order for Mr. Cunnon to dis
an this question under a motion to sus
vend the rules.
The Speaker said Mr. Cannon had risen to a
-question of privilege and he would hear him.
After some discussion Mr. Cannon offered a
resolution that the bill be returned to the
Senate with the announcement that the

useould do wold be to non-ncur and
defeat the bill.
Mr. Cannon's resolution was adopted by a
vote of 168 yeas to 88 nays, and the bill was
ordered to be returned to the Senate.
The Speaker appointed Messrs. Reagan,
ReLina and Dunnel the conference committee
on the river and harbor appropriation bill.
Mr. Atkins, of Tennessee, submitted the
conference report on the legislative appro
priation bill. He said that the only point of
difference between the two Houses was as to
the pay of the employees of the Senate and
Hhouse. The House had yielded to $1000
clerkship, and on other points insisted that
the Senate employees should not receive more
than House employees.
Mr. Durham said he had devoted great at
tention to this conference, and he concurred
with Mr. Atkins that the house should not
give the Senate what it demanded.
Mr. Fry, of Maine, suggested that the Sen
ate was an independent body, and the House
had no more right to fix the salariesof Senate
employees than the Senate had to dictate to
Mr. Foster argued that the House had as
much right to say what the salaries and num
boer of the Senate employees should be as it
had to express an opinion with regard to em
ployees in the bureaus. If Senators were
more gouty and venerable than the members
of the House, it was no reason why they
should have more employees than the House.
Mr. Chalmers and others suggested that
the House recede from its disagreement to
the Senate amendment, and it was construed
as an expression of the opinion of the House
that their conference committee should re
cede, and under that understanding a new
conference committee was appointed.
On motion of Mr. Eden the House took up
and concurred in the Senate amendment to
the bill authorizing the payment of claims
allowed by the Southern Claims Committee.
On motion of Mr. Rice, of Ohio, the rules
were suspended so as to authorize a session
for to-night for pension bills, and if any time
is left thereafter that the private calendar be
taken up as on objection day.
Mr. Burchard, of Illinois, moved to suspend
the rules and pass the following preamble
Whereas, At a joint meeting of the two
houses of the Forty-fourth Congress, con
vened pursuant to law, and for the purpose
of ascertaining and counting the votes for
President and Vice President for the term
commencing March 4, 1877, and upon counting
the votes R. B. Hayes was declared elected
President and William A. Wheeler was de
clared elected Vice President for such term;
Resolved, That no subsequent Congress, in
either house has jurisdiction to revise the
action at such joint meeting, and any attempt
by either house to annul or disregard such
action on the title to office arising therefrom
would be revolutionary and disapproved by
Mr. Townsend and others suggested that
the word revolutionary be omitted, but Mr.
Burchard declined to modify the resolution.
The yeas and nays were ordered. As the
roll call progressed, the Democrats as a rule,
withheld their votes and gathered in a knot
to the right of the Speaker, causing a great
deal of confusion, so that the clerk could not
hear the responses of the members.
Mr. White, of Pennsylvania, moved that the
House adjourn in order that the Democrats
might hold a caucus.
Th.le Speaker decided that the motion
coupled with that condition was not in order.
The roll call was then completed. and the
result was announced, 216 yeas to 21 nays.

Mr. Hartridge, of Georgia, then rose to a
question of privilege, and presented a report
on the memorial of the Maryland Legislature
and the bill introduced by Mr. Kimmell, in
relation to the President's title. He said
that this report was agreed upon this morn
ing, but as the chairman of the Judiciary
Committee, Mr. Knott, was sick and desired
to present a dissenting report, it was pro
posed not to present the report until to-mor
row morning; but in view of the fact that Mr.
Burchard had brought the subject to the at
tention of the House he felt absolved from all
personal obligation to Mr. Knott and would
now present the report of the committee.
The previous question was demanded and
the report and resolution were adopted by" a
vote of 234 to 14.
Mr. Hartridge asked permission that Mr.
Knott might submit his separate views, and
also that Mr. Butler might submit his.
Mr. Springer, who had voted on roll call,
asked leave to make a statement in explana
tion, but the House refused permission. He
wanted to say that he was opposed to all
The following gentlemen voted in the nega
tive: Messrs. Blackurn, Bliss, Boone, Cook,
Cox of New York, Hamilton, Henry, Kim

of Georgia, Springer and Warner-14.
Mr. Ewing, of Ohio moved to suspend the
rules, so as to take from the Speaker's table
the bill for the repeal of the resumption act,
to non-concur in the Senate amendments, and
ask a committee of conference.
Mr. Conger inquired if Mr. Ewing was next
on the list for recognition.
The Speaker said this was public and gen
eral business, and he always recognized gen
tlemen to bring up such business.
The motion of Mr. Ewing was rejected,
yeas 113, nays 115.
The House then at 4:30 p. m. took a recess
until 7:30 p. m.
When the House reassembled at 7:30 p. m.
Speaker Randall announced that the session
was for action on pension bills.
A large number were reported and referred
to the private calendar.
The House then went into committee of the
whole, Mr. Mills, of Texas, in the chair, and a
great many bills for pensions and for the re
lief of disabled soldiers were passed. Several
private bills for claims were also passed, and
the House at 10:30 p. m. adjourned.

THE CANAL BANK UBTTLEHENT.
Editor Democrat-I omitted to state one of
the strongest points against the Canal Bank
tax settlement, and it is too important to
In levying the sum total of taxes on the
people, the law divides the same iato certain
proportions and appropriates these propor
tions to specific purposes, and one proportion
cannot be used for any other than its legjti
In thus dividing the sum total a certain
pýrtion is set apart to pay the interest on the
funded debt, and, as I understand, it is made
a felony to divert any part of thisfund for the
payment of interest.
If the whole Canal Bank tax of $20,300 is
paid in warrants, then is every specific pmr
pose for which the tax is levied deprived of its
proportion; among others, that of the inter
est on the public debt.
With matters in this condition, it is hard to
see how the Auditor and Treasurer are going
to balande the books of their respective
offices. A most experienced and expert book
keeper tells me the strain will be too great,
and that something is bound to break when
the tension is applied. DEMOCRAT.
NEW ORLEANS, June 14, 1878.
Editor Democrat-In yesterday morning's
issue ( f your journal is published an extract
from a St. Landry paper, crit ,sing the con
stitutional amendments which are to be voted
on at the next general election, on the ground
that one of the amendments abolishes the Su
preme Court of the State, substituting noth
ing in its stead, thus practically leaving the
State without a Supreme Court. This criti
cism-which was originally, it is believed,
advanced by the Ouachita Telegram-is
based upon a grave error as to what the
amendments pro ose, the error being
the impression that one of the amend
ments abrogates article 75 of the present con
stitution, which is not the case. The bare
reading of the proposed amendments
as found in the acts of 1878, page 120, will
make it obvious that the writers of the
criticisms referred to were laboring under a
mistake of fact in taking it for granted that
the amendments proposed to strike out
article 75, when such is not the case. Of
course the criticism thus founded on an error
of fact is entirely illusory. By giving this
note a place in your valuable paper you will
correct any opinion which may have been
unadvisedly created by the mentioned
SECOND DIsTMICT COURT.

owner of four warrants as transferee of F. C.
Mahan to whom they were issued in 1871. They
were placed in the safe of the Loan and Pledge
Association. and there remained until the ef
fects of that corporation ware seized by the
civil sheriff under a writ of fieri facias issued
by Judge Hawkins, of the late Superlor District

The rinderpest is rapidly carrying off the
comparatively few head of cattle in Turkey
which have escaped the ravages of war. A
few weeks ago the disease was confined to the
European provinces of the empire; but lately
it has shown itself and is rapidly spreading
through Asiatic Turkey. Thousands of cattle
are dying every week in thevilayets of Smyr
na and Hudavendighlar, and unless the gov
ernment promptly adopt and put in force
measures to prevent the further spread of the
contagion, one of the richest sources of the
wealth of Turkey will be destroyed. Already
meat is becoming scarce in the capital.
New Britain township, Bucks county, Pa.,
contains an eccentric old farmer by the name
of Elias Black, who believes in keeping every
thing on his place. He has not sold any hay
for years. He never thrashes more grain
than he can use, and the rest is allowed to
stand in the stacks for mice and vermin to
feed on. One field of about four acres is lit
erally covered with stacks, some of them
fully fifteen years old. Over 200 stacks may
be counted on the place. It is the most novel
sight ever witnessed on a farm to see hun
dreds of stacks all closely huddled together,
reminding one of the pictures of an Indian
lodge or an African Kraal.
