The conferees on the Morrison surplus

CONFERENCE COMMITTEE1?' KEI'OKTs.
The sundry civil service bill, which has
been regarded as the main obstacle in the
the way of a speedy adjournment of con
gress, was agreed upon by the conferees to
day. The eo:ist survey "item, inserted by
the senate remains substantially as it passed
the senate, while the provision for the pro
tection and improvement of the
Yellowstone park is the same a
that made in the original bill. The con.
ferees upon the Northern Pacific forfeiture
bill and to rejeal the pre-emption and tim
ber culture law met this noon and after a
short conference adjourned, having failed
to agree with regard to the points at issue
in either bill. It is not now expected that
another conference will be held. Amonr

A member of the foreign affairs commit
tee holding close relations with the admin
istration, stated tonight that the adoption of
the Cutting resolutions, should they pass
the house tomorrow, would imply much
more than seemed to be generally supposed.
In the first place, lie said, Mexico had been
asked to release this man Cutting. Mexico
has refused and has given reasons. These
resolutions declare those reasons insufficient
and request the president to renew the de
mand. Should this renewed demand be re
fused our minister will be at once with
drawn and then in all probability an extra
session of congress would have to be called.
Mr. Belmont, the chairman of the house
committee on foreign affairs, is working
most earnestly for the release of Mr. Cut
ting. FORTY-NINTH CONGRESS.
Washington, Aug. 3. Mr. Hale, from
the conference committee on the deficiency
bill, submitted a report and proceeded to
explain it in legard to certain claims from
the income tax paid by non-resident aliens,

had turned out partially and the senate en
tirely put in the bill. It had turned out in
conference that there were objections to
some of those put in the senate, and the
conference returned that these items might
be referred back to the secretary of the
treasury with instructions to report the facts
to congress at the next session as to the
item for the Brazil Steamship company.
The appropriations were struck out and a
claue substituted directing the postmaster
general to report at the next session the
amount of service rendered and the sum
justly and equitably due. The item to pay

Mr. Allison reported back the house joint
resolution to continue the appropriations
Mr. Plumb and Mr. Edmunds objected
to its present consideration.
Mr. Allison asked that the objection be
withdrawn and stated that if the resolution
were not passed the employes whose com

civil bill could not be paid for the time in
tervening between the last day of Jul' and
the day when that bill would receive the
Mr. Plumb declared to withdraw the ob
jection, being williugdie said to leave with
the house the responsibility for its tardiness
in sending appropriation bills to the senate.
The change of rule in the house by which
seven or eight of ihe general appropriation
bills were taken from the appropriation
committee had not cone deep enouch. He
might particularize to show where the
blame rested, but as the house tolerated an
autocracy which controlled its business it
became itself responsible for all the delay.
The joint resolution was placed on the
Mr. Allison, from the same committee,
reported back the house adjournment reso
lution, with an amendment changing the
time from the2Sthof July to 4 p. m. on
the 4th of August.
Mr. Hoar expressed his dissent to the
passage of this or any other adjournment
resolution until the senate had considered
the bill reported by him from the judicial
committee on April 19 for "Inquests under
national authority." He referred to the
massacres during" the last few years in
Louisiana, South Carolina, Mississippi,
Alabama, and other southern states, and
stated that in every one of these cases, so
far as was shown to the people of the north
by the press, a negro and a Re
publican was tue victim, and a Democrat
and a white man the aggressor. If any of
these outrages had been perpetrated on an
American citizen in Mexico or Canada,
congress would not adjourn until it had
made provisions to put the natural defenses
in a condition for war.
Mr. Kcnna protested against the speech
made by the senator from Massachusetts in
the closing hours of the session. That
speech would go into the Record and would
go into the campaign as a bloody-shirt
campaign document (with a frank on it),
carried free through the mails for the pur
pose of agitating sectional sentiments and
feelings which, so far as he was concerned,
were dead and would remain so forever.
Mr. Saul-bcrv expressed his surprise that
a senator with the experience of the sena
tor from JI:isachusctts should have so far
departed from all legislative propriety as to
inject into the discussion of an adjourn
ment resolution the virulence of such a
speech. From the exhibition made by the
Republican senators while the speech was
being made (many senators having left
their seats) he knew that it had not the ap
proval of those with whom the senator was
Mr. Eustis denied that a single outrage
had taken place in the state of Louisiana
for many years past which had not been
the subject of investigation, discussion and
Mr. Berry alo protested against Mr.
Hoars speech, and stated that so far as the
state of Arkansas was concerned, order and
quiet had prevailed there since the Demo
cratic party came into power in 1S74.
3Ir. Dawes approved Mr. Hoar's position
in the matter.
Mr. Gibon expressed hissurprise and re
gret that the senator from Massachusetts
(3Ir. Hoar) should have brousrht into the
senate at this hour of the session a subject
calculated to create sectional debate.
Mr. noar defended the bill and said he
had on several occasions spoken of his in
tention to bring it up before adjournment
He did not se how it was sectional. It ap
plied to north and south and defended the
Chinaman as well as the necro.
Mr. Blaine objected to the further con
sideration of the adjournment resolution
and it was placed on the callendar.
Mr. Blaine then called up the report of
the committee on pensions in the case of the
vetoed bill giving a pension to Marv J.I
.Nonage. The debate on it was interupted
to allow the confrerees on the river and
Iiarbor bill to report an airreement. The

Mr. Willis, of Kentucky, presented the
conference report on the river aud harbor
appropriation bill and it was read at length.
Mr. Springer criticised the bill as re
ported from"the conference because it re
fused to accept the Illinois and Michigan
canal and to mt'ke an appropriation for the
Hennepin canal, but as the bill provided
for some important improvements he would
withdraw his opposition to its passage aud
let the men who had stricken out the Hen
nepin appropriation take the responsibility
for such action.
Mr. Miller closed the discussion in a three
minute speech in favor of the report and it
was agreed to yeas 121, nays 98.
Mr. Burns, of Missouri, submitted the
conference report upon the deficiency ap
propriation bill and it was agreed to.
3Ir. Morrison, of Illinois, submitted the
conference report on the sundry civil bill.
The reading of the report consumed nearly
an hour, and as 5 o'clock was near at hand
Mr. Holman, of Indiana, wished its con
sideration to go over until tomorrow, say

Special Dispatch to the Dally Eagle.
Wellington Kan., Aug. 3. A young
man named Roberts, from Great Bend,

During the past week burglaries have
been almost a nightly occurrence. They
carry a pair of editor's scissors and a rod
with a hook on the end, and

For a fortnight no one has complained of
