Proceeding to the calemlii", the
Senate resumed consideration of the
bill to divide the Sioux Indian reserv
ation in Dakota, which continued up
t o 2 o'clock, when Senator Vest took
the floor on the Dakota bill. ' lie dis
claimed any hostility, nenoaal or po
litical, to the people of Dako'a, and
claimed himself to be a Western man,
and pioud of the Wet tarn country
and it mtgnltlcent development,
lie desired t look at the question in

the standpoint of elevated statesman

acrimonious spirit be relied on the Re
publicins, that never had they filled
to take advantage cf party filing md
bias in pu'ting through their meas
ures. II ('aiu!or Vest) vim a Dem
ocrat, and was pmud tf tbe fact.
Without regard to politics, however,
in tbe qneeiion, he would be a coward
if he did not stand where he now
stcoJ. He asked why repeated refer
ences hid been made in debate by the
Kepublicans to party feeling? Why
had reference been mads to the tact
that the people r t Dakota were largely
composed ol Union soldiers, and
teat that (net might account fortleir
rntiveness on their po'itical situation T
Mr. Vest could show, and would bt
l ire he got through, that many brave
ex-Union veterans who had be?n shot
and shelled and eaber-strnck, a ad he
honored them for It, who were now
residing in Dski 1, were earnestly oj
pised to the measure reported from
the Senate Conmittee on Territo
ries; but he denied the rig) t
t any man to peculiar privileges in
thl country because oi having (otigl t
under one flty, because of having
espousod any cause, because of having
tlone his duty to bis principle and
convict ens as he under 03d them.
Justice tbmld be done t all men.
Why tbruft before the people, in utl

At tbe hearing given to-day by the
Senate Committee on . Patent i, to
authorise publisher and others inter
ested in the subject of International
copyright, Mr. Gardner Hubbard ad
dressed the cem rait tee in opposition
to tue paasag ot any copyright bill.
Mr. James Unssell Lowell, president
cf the American Copyright Loegne,
waa introduced by Mr. Ureen, the
eeorttary of the league, and spoke at
some length in favor of tbe panuge (i
an International copyright bill. In
rerlv to Mr. Hubbard "he said nobody
would maintain that there was
property in an idea. The property right
waa in the fashion of presenting tbe
idea. Tbe constitution recogn!sd
thl In granting patent. Patents
ware nothing but idea fashioned in a
certain way. For inrtince the Bell
telephone was precisely parallel case
with books, lie declared there waa
one kind of bosk better than cheap
books, and these were books honestly
come by. lie took the morel view of
the question. Many of the argument
used by Mr. Uubbard might be
need in defense of pocket-picking.
One could live much easier if lie could
live upon the labors of other people,
but this waa d4 considered honett
when he was young. Mr. Dowell spoke
for an hour, ctmily in reply to in
quiries addressed to btm by member
of the committee. Mr. James Welch,
president of the Typographical Union
of Philadelphia, and representing the
unions of the entire country, addressed
the committee, and presented a me
morial in support of the Chase bill and
in opposition to the llawley bill. Ia
reply to inquiries, he I !d the Hawley
bill, amended as suggested by Senator
Hawley yesterday, by the insertion (
provisiea requiring foreign works
copyrighted here to be minted In this

families of both date back to our firtt
settlers. The boys have, never trav

have never been associated in any way
with foreigner of any clime, and 1

that dancing would cot likely begin

ed, or expressed, in the publication
that thl arrangement wai in defer
