"For three years past the Communist

bops of securing . information as to

the constitution and tbe laws thst
would provide a mod of sett'ement
ol tne ulraitroua dispute between
capital and labor. Tbe committee
bad decided tbat the pending measure
was tne Dest that U could (ormnlate,
It wai simple, voluntary arbitration,
He knew thai this was disappointing
to many members of the Hons. He
knew that there was a feeling
in tne brent oi many men
tbat this was not what
was expected, bnt if they would but
redtet, they wcu'd realizt tbat the
first thing to consider wai, how far
they could regulate the disputes by an
appesl to public opinion. If this
met hoi failed, then he conld see but
one other, and tbat was tbe itroEg arm
of tbe government to ttk the great
corporation by tbe tbioat and toll
tbem tbey moat yield to arbitration ;
that they must submit tbe differences
between them and tbelr workmen to
some peaceful agreement; that the
government could not bave the condi
tions of affalu tbat to-day prevailed
throughout fire States of tbe Union
practical , revolution all business
suspended, end the people of -. greet
cities suffering from the increased cost
of f Md and fuel. .
He simply knew tbat the workmen
bad stated tbat ther were willing to
arbitrate their grlevi nces and he k new
bat tbe president of the Mtscoari Pa-
cflo had not Tat consented to do it.
lo be meantime, thank heaven, tbe
br i , second thonght of American
WOrknen had kent the atrike within
boundt, and he was convinced that
thy wmld prevent ; any diiaitrons
conaeqotacea until the termination of
the issue, .The Committee on Labor
wa unanihoualT of the nninion that
this bill wu the best that could be
pawed now tu invoke the public pin
ion of the COUMrv and to cnmnnl nun
in this case as fa all other cases, to ap
reai w r.sson, ra,a not to 088 brute

Mr. Kelly IPa l said that he would
vote for th, bill, bat cs that wai bi
purpose, he wanted to say in advance
to the worklngmen oVthe country tbat
it was atrlck on theii credulity and a
irauu. ne asaeu ine if ntieman Irom

Mr. O'Neil could only jioswer by
ititlng that in Livingston' works
which the gentleman bad evident'y

piece id machliirrvr together. Why
did'not tbe geDtUman from I'ennayl

tearing down T I
Mr. Kelly said tbat he wonIA vote
for any bill which would give relief to
oppressed labor, but he would not
vote lor ten mass oi wsras, unless nis
vots wai accompanied by tbe notice
that the bill meant nothing.
Mr. Foran 1 0. 1 was no mors opposed
to the pending bill than he wai to
diinklng a glass of wa'er. Both were
harmless. The bill could injure no
one, but it could accomplish no good.
There was no more arbitration in this
bill than there was flesh cn a doctor a
Skeleton. Referring to the Missouri
r.citio strike, he (aid that the work-
Sen had asked for arbitration and Jiy
ould had refused. If the arbiliation
were accepted it would be because Mr.
Oould bad become aatixfiad that it wrs
far his interest to end the controversy,
and not because he loved the principle
of aibitratlnn, Suppose he did not
desire to arbitm'e; then the bill went
f .r rotblng. There was no lung in it.
The labor problem could not be set
tled by arbitration or by legislation.
It wai deeper, and went beyond legir
l.tion. Tbe ides tbat Congress could
ia one day solves problem which had
been btfore the civilized world fr
axes and ages was nonsense. . It
could hot be done. The dillicnlty
was In the unjust distribution of
wealth. If, by law, wealth could be
distributed, something conld be done;
but nothing conld be done by passing
arbitration laws. Just aa soon a men
of wealth and property were made to
understand (wbfther by education or
something more svious) that their in
terest demanded that their neighbors
should be as happy and as contented
at themselves, and that tbelr property
and llTes were in jeopardy when liv
ing ia a community where everybody
was dhsitufied. when they learned
that fact the problem would bs solved
and not before. Tbe only way that
the problem could bo solved was for
tbe wealthy, men to consecrate their
lives to the amelioration of the condi
tion of the workfngmen.
Mr. Hammond Oa opposed the
bill. - - ,
Mr, Weaver Iowa said that the
remedy for labor troubles mast come
irom a proper law to reguiate inter
state co amerce, and from a law which
would create a condition in our econ
omic system so tbat ths employer
could afford to py the laboring man
what his labor wa worth.- There was
no disposition on the part of the work
ingmen to violate law. Tbey desired
to earn their living in the sweat of
their fans. The trouble wai that
they conld not get the opportunity to
work. The remedy w aa to give the
country an increased volume of cur
rency. This labor question was purely
and simply a question of money.
Mr KeedMe. said that what the
laboring men ne ded and desired was
that there should be tbat careful ex
amination of the whole matter which
could lead to an agreement. It may
tnrn out, he said, tbat this legislation
will amount to little; it may turn out
that it amounts to much, (suppose
we try it, and when we learn more, do

Dated on tne Anglian law, sni

Tbere was a third party 'he pro

Mr. Keagan I lex I opposed the bill
on the ground that it would take from
tbe local tribunal, where it btlongio,
me sainstmem na settiemeut i t a
local question -a qneetion betwe n
ths hirer snd tbe laborer. Tbe reme
dy for troubles like the present was
to be found through the bal ot box by
the election of State Legislature and
Congresses and Presidents who wonld
respect tbe rigats of tie people, and
who wonld stop ths system of tbe
robbery of tbe many foil the bant tit of
the few, which bad beet going on for
tbe hut twenty years. Until tbeco
large corporations were controlled by
law; until tbe robbery of tbe pro

Mexican frontier line, with a view to
a mutual agreement of tho govern

States that may facilitate such recla
The army bill wa then placed be
fore the Senate and Senator Logan
continued his remarks on tlie bill and
in answer to Senntor Teller's speech
After several other speeches the
question went over, and Senntor
Vance addressed the Senate in sup
port of his bill to repeal the civil ser
vice law. The act, in Senator Vance's
opinion, was wholly unconstltution il,
and in voluntarily submitting to its
provisions tho President waa surrend
ering his prerogative, which it was his
iltlty to protect, llie people tjy tlie
eviction of 1H4 liaa declared tor a
cliaYqe of officers in this republic, but
their will hadliot been respected. The
IVesidentJiad bound himself, not only
iy uie law itseit. mit Dv extra letral
troniise, to extend the spirit of the
iw to offices nKyer contemplated by
it. The result was that political ene
mies ana spies surrrmnded every ad
ministrative omcer. This was trying
t serve the Lord with the devil for
an active partner. ' The whole thing
was a humbug, and irt partial proof
he read an advertisement offering, for
1U centa, to supply a series ot exauu
nation questions which would qualify
anybody to pass a civil service exam
ination. Ihe civil service law was
an attempt of the Republican party
ttHUiKMtp for the exposures of the
many' tArruptions of that party. It
should Ac, have been called "un act
to regulnte and improve the civil
service, but ihe last will and testa
ment of the he-publican party. Mr.
Vance wits only that a Demo
cratic President hud become its
executor instead ot atVninistrator At

said that out of over 7000 vtlicers in

tho President's tender and touching
farewell to the putative parent of civil
service reform, Commissioner Katon,
bespoke of those who opposed this
law as the worst elements of both par.
ties. There was no earthly doubt that
the great majority of tho IVinocriitie
party were opposed to that law. If,
then, the "worst elements", of the
Democratic party were in a majority,
the party was indeed in a bad way.
Senator Vance having stated that at
tho time of the paMsape of the civil
service law the government depart
ment were working night and day to
make all the appointments possible
before the bill should become a law.
Senator Teller made it distinct and
positive denial of the statement. He
said it bad been so said in some news
paper, but it waa an entire mistake.-
Senator .Dolph then addressed the
Senate in ' support of the bill for the
ailmiwwui of Washington Territory,
lie claimed that from every point of
view tho Territory was entitled to ad
