SENATOR CHANDLKU's PUOPOSITION TO RE-ENACT
TBE DIRECT TAX BIM.?OBSTRUCTIONISTS
?TTMIPT TO DEFEND THEIR CONDUCT?
SCENES IN THC HOUSE.
[ST TKLEOSAra TO THSJ TRISCSS, J
Washington, April O.-The deadlock In the
House continues. All business is at a standstill.
Four lifths of the members are compelled to sub?
mit to thc dictation of a handful of Southern
brigadiers. The end is as far distant as ever. A
compromise is out of thc question.
In the meantime public business of course
must, suffer. Thc appropriation bills ought to be
bussed before (ho end of thc fiscal year, or before
Juue HO, 1MB, Less than eighty-two days re?
main in which to do this. Even then, no ac?
count is taken of thc time, which thc Senate will
necessarily noaJn to consider these bills. But
In the present coudition of things no appropria?
tion hill can bc considered. Tho House is still
proceeding under a sin-cial order to consider the
Direct Tax bill, and as long us April 4 lasts iu
the House nothing else can be touche.}. The at?
titude of the Speaker in this whole matter is
severely criticised. Under tin- guise of strictly
?'-Trying out the ruh-s of the House, In- is lilly
playing into the hands of the filibusters, with
v.iiom be is evidently in sympathy. The propo?
sition of ii Dumber ol Dcuiot nils who ure ni favor
of the imssage of the Direct Tux bill to hold a
caucus is, .,1 eon rae, being stoutly opposed by
Messrs. Oates and Breckiiuidge, the [caders of
in- Bllburterlni Mint:, a eanoua would result in
tl,- Southern brigadiera being compelled tu re?
treat from the position they now occupy so de
liantly and this they do hot propose to expos.
'I he disquiet lui conduct of the Southern men
engaged in defeating the will ot the majority is
a fair Indication of what the representativea of
tin" lute Confederaey would attempt to accom?
plish wen- they nure mure in full possession nf
the Government, with no Republican Senate,and
without a determined Republican minority ni tho
House to (nee their Impudent demands.
BOUTHEBB WARCLAIMM BO BUGABOO.
The talk of Sotitii.-ru war claims hus often been
decried in late years M a tiiek of politicians to
revive sectional feeling, bm nothing so startling
probably ever suggested its.lt to the bnagination
ol a political propuot as that twenty-three years
alter the suppreMUOo of tin- Rebellion,
n leading momno of the House Ju?
diciary CoaBJUlUcc should rise m his
s.ut and propose the refunulng ol' the rot*on
i.i \ iii exchange tor the repaj mem to loyal States ut'
money Imposed upon them under the Act ut August
'?, IBB1. And yet tins is wi.al, Colonel <?ates and
Ins Southern friends have tue hardihood now io
propose. The Nunn etui hardly otford to deceive
itself any lunger .is tu Hie true nature and 111
teiiiiun of siieh political buahwackers. For many
years the North has been giving expression to a
willingness to tax itself for ihe benefit of thc
boam. The propooition to devote ST",uno.ono for
educational purposes under the Blair lull was
nothing inure nor less than a contribution to be
levied upon Northern communities ia favor of
Southern States. Under that bill, Sun.nun.lum
would have gone to State* .south of Mason and
Dixon's line. Their representatives tumbled over
one another in the race to secure the plunder.
Their line hair-splitting theories about the Con?
stitution were thrown lo the winds, and a sickly
sentimentality in the North applauded the pro
pi.sal as a peace otfering tu Ihe Impoverished
South. And here within two months utter the
passage nf the I'.Iair bill in the Senate is tlie
Hii-wer to thia Billing "I lin- tatted calf. The op?
position of the Brigadiers csnr.ot be explained un
any other ground than that their association with
the swineherds has alt',- tbci Obliterated their
sense 0f right and wronir.
Tin- proposition isa perfeetlj simple on*. Here
was a tax raised upon all the States. Some paid
it; Borne didn't. Those timi d!3 either wish
thone Stat.s that did not pay the tax tu nav it
now. or to tie given back the nioner which they
? ld under the impression that it, would be a
harden distributed equally arnon? nil States
In other words, they want tu remove an In
equalitv of taxation and repair an net of In?
justice as far as it is in their power to do so.
BEBATOB CBABBLER'fl PROPOSITION.
Now Senator Chandler proposes tin- adoption
of a very simple plan, in view of the dishonest
attitude boaotingiy assumed by these Southern
Brigadiera. It is so simple that, it is strange

Burlington yards In this city. About 7 o'clock a
Burlington train with some freight cars was coming
Intn the yards from the Chicago and Western Indiana
tracks. The rah was occupied by one of the new
?witchmen, besides the new engineer and fireman.
At Forty seventh st. a large crowd of strikers, sympa?
thizers and ruffians was standing at the crossing, and
as the engine approached, some stones were thrown.
One of them broke the cab window and struck Charles
Sommers. He was not hurt much, but Immediately
drew his revol'-er and fired at the crowd. The bullet
struck James Moylan, a fouudryraan, in the leg above
the knee, Inflicting a serious wound. A rush was
made for the engine, but all on board drew revolvers
and pointed them at the crowd. The throttle was
pulled open, and the train dashed away from tho mob
without further casualties, although one or two harm?
less shuts were exchanged. On reaching fortieth Pt
another large crowd was met. The temper of the
men was ugly. A .shower of stones greeted t>ho en?
gine, and while lt was rapidly passing the mob, Som?
mers again fired. This time his bullet struek
Michael Walsh, a Wabash ongln-or. The wounded
man was removed lo Ihe hoapttel, where his wound
was pron mured falal. Tho police after tins 10000*1
shooting telephoned ahead. The engine was Inter
Mated at Thirty first st., and rimmers wa* arrested.
"Wo aro now In BOBMSetea of PMBO Infor?

a meeting of the directors of thu road has been called

"Furthermore," he WOBt on, "everything now

Pani Morton said: "President Perkins ls In Iowa,

It is a silly rumor without any foundation of truth
Tho strikers still show a bold front. Letters aro

wrecks of engines which lie around the yards, of the
different towns, wherever tho Bullington hus a track.
