Wabhisoton. March 5. lhute.
Alter the call of committees for reports
of a private nature, the Honse went

HcCreary JKy. in the chair) on the

The total nmoaLt earned by the bill
y?ai 1634,402. Five - thousand five
bundled and uiutty dollara was ap
propriated forcompentationcf ipecal
agei.t cf th'i Treasury to examine the
nooks oi the reveral sub-treasuries.
Part of this deficiency aroEe in the
fiscal year ending Jane 30, 1885, on
acconnt of a special examination re
. quired by a r) fa'cation in the New
Orleans c-ub-Treasury. The appro
ptiation for the current year had be
come exhausted, principally because
the expense ( examination had be
come greater on account of the large
amount of silver in the various sub
treasuries. Six thousand dollars was
appropriated for repairs of the Treas
ury Department building. Twelve
thousand dollars was appropriated to
continue the propagation of food
fishes in the Gulf of Mexico. An ap
propriation of 1170,000 was made for
famishing artificial limbs to Union
soldiers. The deficiency of $185,000
ia the fees of juiors and witnesses bad
arisen from the extraordinary ex
penses attending trials in Utah Terri
tory. There was appropriated for
the armament of the four new cruis
ers $51,803. The first appropriation
for the cruisers had been an unguarded
appropriation. It had been an appro
pn'a'ion that left it within the power
of the Secretory of the Navy to leave
the money in one bureau, and take it
out of that bureau after obligations
had been incurred in aiother. Con
gress has Bti adily improved the modes
and methods of making the appropria
tions, and from the date of the Robe
son bill to the present hour, legisle
t.'on, under the direction of the Ap
propriation Committee, had been a
vast improvement over the legislation
that preceded it.
Aft?r a leog debate comrri'tee rose
and tba bill was passed. Yeas, 220;
the House then went into commit
tee of the whole on the private calen
dar. The committee soon rose and the
House, altar passing two private bills,
took a recess nntil 7:30 o'clock, the

tion of pension bills.
At its evening session the House
pawed fifty pension bills and ad

have the restrictions of the impoitv
tion into Germany of, American pork
removed, and one prating that the

A resolution offered by Senator Hale
was agreed to, calling on the Secretary
of the Navy for a variety of informa
tion concerning the Dolphin, Boston,
Atlanta and Chicago. The call in
cludes information as to changes from
the original plans of those ships, and
the causes of such changes; corres
pondence with the Naval Advisorv

General relating thereto, and any cor
respondence showing that the con
tractor was in financial difficulty when

On motion oi Ser ator Blair the ed
ucation bill was then taken up.
An amendment cflered by Senator
Logan was agreed to, providing that
"the Secretary cf the Interior is
charged with the proner administra
ticn of this lnw, through the Commis
sioner oi ivi ucation, and these two
cfiiceaare authorized, with the ap
proval ot me rresiaent, to mass all
needful rules and regulations not in
consistent with the provisions of the
bill to carry out thoBe provisions.
Senator Logan said bis object was to
establish a sort of board instead of
leaving questions arising under the
nill ei.tirely to the Secretary of the
Interior. The amendment was agreed
An amendment offered by Senator
Dolph wai agreed to, requiring from
- each State full information each year
as to the number of school districts in
such State, and, if any, part of the
State shall not have been divided into
echool districts, the reason for the
failure to so divide; also, the relative
numbers cf white and colored chil
dren in the eeve-al school districts,
An amendment offered by Senator
Ingalls waa agreed to, requiring that
the annual report from each State
. shall show the wages paid to common
- school teachers.
Another, amendment, offered by
Senator Dolph, was agreed to, substi
tuting the census cf 1890 for that of
1880 as the basis of distribution for
the moneys of the bill after the cen
sus figures ef 1890 shall have been re
ceived, the figures of 1880 to operate
Senator Brarts offered an amend
ment providing that if any State
should decline or relinquish its quota
cf the moneys under the bill tne
amount bo declined or relinquished
should go to increase the quota of the
States accepting. This, Senator Evarts
said, would settle the question that
had been raised as to what waa to be
tome cf any part of the money not ac
cepted by S'ates.
Sera'er Blair favored the amend
ment, though he had no doubt that
every State would accept its quota.
Senator Maiey opposed it as "emi
nently unjust," Texas, he said, could
take care of her own school eystsm,
and if Texai, with the view cf light
ening the burdens of general tuition
through the country, should decline
to accept any money under the bill it
would be ur just to turn the quo'a of
Texas over to too other States aa pait
of their qno'a.
Senator Evarts'e amendment was
agreed to yea?, f 5 ; nayp, 23.
An amendment offered by Senator
Spooner was agreed to, requiring the

plated by the bill the teaching of phy
siology and hygiene, with special
reference to the nature of alcoholic
drink", tobacco and other narcotics
and their effects on the human evetem

Sena-or Call moved to include in
the bill industrial education, so thit
part cf the money may t,o for that
Secator Plumb cflered an amend
ment providing that no Stats should
be entitled to any of this educational
fund until it ehall tile with the
Secretary of the Interior a sample of
each school book in use in its common
schools. Senator Plumb said be hoped
this amendment would commend
itself to the Senator from Maseacbu
setts, (Senator Hoar), who had made
sectional speeches in Massachusetts
and catholic speeches in the Senate,
Senator Hoar inquired whether
Senator Plumb meactto insinuate that
he (Senator Hoar) made speeches in
the Senate differed to those he de
livered anywhere else.
Senator Plumb replied that the Sen
ator had spoken in Massachuseiti of
the great frauds in the Southern Stttes
and he (Senator Plumb) had been
fairly overwhelmed at the catholicity
oi uis laie speecnes in me oenntt.
Senator Hoar ea;d he had alwava
and everywhere expressed his abhor
rence and condemnation cf the elec
tion outrages in the South and had
gone to the extreme of his power to
get tne national anthority to put down
these outrages. On the other baud
he (Senator Hoar) had f or sixteen
years everywhere advocated national
aid to education in the South.
Senate r Plumh said he meant no re
flection on the Senator, but waa sim
ply contrasting his confidence in the
Southern States on the subject of edu
cation with his want of confidence in
them in the matter of elections. Ser a
tor Hoar believed the two oron-
sitions entirely reconciliable. He had
favored trusting the Southern people
with the suffrage after the war, be
cause he did not think we could have
a republican government with vassal
States. He knew it was taking a risk,
but republican government had itself
been a risk. He would intrust the
Southern people with the administra
tion of this bill for the same reason
that he had intrusted them with the
rights of American citizens afler the
war, and with the same confidence in
the manhood of the Southern people.
Sera' or Plumb held in his hand a
school history of the United States
written by teachers of high schools of
Virginia and Kentucky, which, Sena
tor Plumb said, the government ought
not to permit to be used; the book
ought to be expurgated.
Senator Edmunds It has gone into
a State of inocuous desuetude now.
Senator Plumb said the book delib
erately falsified history, characterizing
the Union armies as about whollv com
posed of immigrants, and never speak
ing bnt with disrespect of the com
manders of the Union soldiers aa well
as with contempt of the soldiers them
Senator Enstis Where is it used ?
Senator Piumb did net know, but
bad been told by a Southern man tha
the book, bad as it was, was not as bad
as ethers that to his personal know
ledge were used. Senator Plumb a!d
we might difier as to the merits of the
great struggle, but he had never heard
aNoithern man speak with anything
but personal respect cf the Southern
soldiers or their commanders. There
was no necessity to falafy history.
The National Government should not
pay oot money to educate the youth
of the South to look with contempt on
the soldiers of the North aj cowards
and poltroons, or as anything other
tbau brave, manly and patriotic men.
Senator Plumb's amendment was re
jected as a whole, but on his renewing
the part of the amendment requiring
that camples of the school-books be
filed in the Interior Department, with
out making the State's title to the
money depend on euch filing, it was
Other amendments of detail wr

llimats destination of which is some

tie swore that Arnold was dragged
into a thicket and shot in the head bv
Simon Vox, who afterward stabbed
