id onltred to lie ovr oue day, pro
viding lor an investigation of the mat
ter of the appointment of Indian

lution reiitea that in the mat'er of
euch appoin'menta it is iUtil "that

I'Ditfd Ktstee certain of the lands

Senator Van Wyck said the bill pro
pofed to forieit from Wallulla to Port
land a portion ol the oriuinal grant
over w tiu h the NorUiern l'aciflc lail
rod did not now contemplate build
ing a line. His (Van W ye k's) objec
tion to the bill was that there
were lamia along other unfinished tor
tious ol the ruad and some along
portions that bad been finished wblcu
should bo included in the bill. Tbe
bill, as It stood, he laid, if paed,
would be a legislative declaration that
the matter of forfeiture bad been
passed on by Congress and tLat no
other forfeiture proceedings could be
undertaken. He moved an amend
ment lor the corumit'ee bil1, which
amendment provides for the forfeiture
of all the Northern l'aeitic ta lrcal
grant eicept lands I r which the linns
were completed before July 4, 1H7H,
and except the liiilit of way.
f-onator Call (aid that toe commit'
tee bill was really a pioposiiion to
confirm and not to forego a giant of
eome 4H,()00,0U0 acres o land to the
Northern 1'iriUo Itailrowl Company.
It was e rpiivalcDt to a gift by Congress
of -'00,(i)0 or f 300,000 to a few indi
viduals. He piotepted against it.
The hour of 2 o'clock ariivirg, tbe
bill went over, and tionator Mil er
aiibmitted the conference report on
the hill "abolishing certain fees, etc.,"
in connection with American ship
ping. (This is the bill containing the
Frye amendment authorlairg the
President to deny by proclamation t )
veasels of foreign countries such priv
ilegtsaasre denied to American ves
sels in snch foreign countries.) The
report was concurred in.
Hortfttor Miller ezplainrd that the
-bill an agreed to in conference was
substantially as it wai pai&ed by the
Nena'or Stanford then called up the
resolutions introduced by him, ex
pressing the loirow of the Henute st
the death of the jato Senator John F.
Mil'cr of California. The rfsolntions
having been offered, Honattr Ktinford
thn a1;n led ti (ion. Miller in foaling
terms. Senator Htanfi rd hridly out
lined the lite of Senator Miller Iroiu
Ins birth tlnongh the varied phases
of his career as student, lawyer, citi
zen, sohher and Senator.
After epeeches by Senators Ed
mime's, Vnorhees, L'gan, Heirs', Har
rison and l'o'pli, tho resolutions were
agreed to( and in further respect for
the durea-I'd the Sena'o a 'joiunecl.
Mr. Dikgley Me. from ti n commit
tee of coulerence nut! nutted tho rep rt
of tliHt CKiiimiitee on the shipping
Mr.Bnckenridge f Ky. thought that
the consideration of the report ehould
be poatpo' ed until the motuupraof the
House had an opportunity to examine
the provisions of tbe bill carefully.
The question Involved in tho Frye
amendment was broader than a II rat
blush It might appear to be. It not
only conferred privileges, but Imposed
adutyiipon tbe President tJwithiliaw
from foreign vufssls certain commer
cial privileges when those privileges
had tbcen denied to American vessels
in the country to which such fore'gn
vessels belonged, Tho supposed need,
for tbe provision r ue out of the recent
troubles with Canada, but there waa
not a word in the bill a oat fishing
veeefili. There was no hurry for the
passage cf this bill, and it could be
considered more fully at some future
day than it cculd now. There waa no
danger of a war, ami the Executive
bad uoiVr consideration tho setl le
nient of tbe Canadian fishery trouble.
Mr. Dunn lArk. mid the provision
did not apply t) tue fishery question.
Mr. Jtrtvkenridge thought, if they
were true, tVere was leos necesH'y for
bants in riuaing the bill, letaiiFo there
was no otlier pending question on or
relative to commercial privileges he
tween the United States and other
countries. The objection to the pro
vision wan that it enabled tho Presi
dent to place an embargo npon Cana
dian versels. He would go as fur as
the gentleman from Maine, but he
wanted M be ciear ai ti what he was
do'.ng. He did not he ieva in retali
atory or revengeful legislation. He
believed more in diplomatic inter
course, in patient end honett, r sndid
correspondence, w'th a view of reich
irgasettionii'iit.tban he did in xoui
tive inUr.'erenee and retaliatory
measures. He had no doubt that the
Canadian iliflioulty would be settled.
Two greit rntlone like the United
States and Euglaud were Dot going to
fall out about a matter cf Until tig,
which coald be settled by negotiation.
After so mo further debat, the re
port was agreed to without division.
A number of committee reports
were submitted, after which the House
went into committee of tbe whole for

called by Mr. G'adrtone aseembled at
tbe Foreign Office this aft-irnoon. Ti e
meeting was wed attended by the
Premier's supporters, but nens of tbe
known Hartington or Cfiamber'a n
dirsenters were present. Mr. Glad
stone was cheered when he entered.
Heat ence proceeded to thebusine s
on band and announced that the gov
ernment bad decided to modify the
clause, No. 24, of tbe borne rule bill,
excluoing Iiish Re preservatives from
Wes'mioister. He did not state what
the nature of the promised modifica
tion waa to be, but did s ate that the
government bad decided to modify
tbe clause provided the bill pawo.l its
second reading and wis referred to a
sel ct committee for action during the
autumn tussion of Parliament. The
meetirg cordially approved the por
tion taken by Mr. GlacVone. Tbe
Piemier'a foPowera now exprers them
selves as eanguice of the success cf
his Iiish policy. They do not ipvk
as it they feel at all tbat any cone s
s'ons have been made to ibe
Chamberlain and Uartingtin frl
lowing, but maintain that Mr.
GladttODe has defended tbe govern
ment's po icy in a way so clear and
satl-faciory that Liberal waverera can
no longer withhold their approval, and
mustra'ly o tbe Piemiera support.
This, it ia thought by the government
paity, must result in practically break
ing down tbe so-called di sident oppo
sition, as it will leave no Liberal not
actuated by purely perron al motives
any grounds lor hostile feelings.
Later. Hit. Gladstone declared that
he would at the autumn teseion of
Parliament introduce an amended
Irish home rnle bill. A number of
the Liberal dis-identa who did net
care to risk compromising tbemrclvcs
by attending tbe meeting have balled
with undisguised ratiefaclion tbe atti
tude of apparent conciliation adopted
by the Premier. These cow openly
proclaim their Intention to return to
their paitr a lg ance and vote wit'i
the government for the sec and read
ing. Among the first to announce
their returo have been Mr. John
Fotober Moulton, Rid teal member rf
Parliament for Clabham, and Mr.
Samuel Wbithread, Liberal member
for Bedford. Both were adherents of
Lord Hartington before today's
meeting; both have since announced
themselves as suppoitars of Mr. Glad
8'ione. Mr. Wiinbiend's accession is,
perhaps, the mott icflurntial tlint tbe
Premier cut d have desitod. Ho is
the gentlemao refeired to as a wine
counselor by Mr. Uladetone in his
great 8 seech ict.rrducing the borne
rule bill on the 8th of Ap il; and, by
re a1 on of bis high character and sound
judgment, bus long been a conspic
uous member of the Liberal party,
liuaidea tbo above named, a number
of other difsidents have opsnly pro
nounced themselves eatisfled with Mr.
Gladstone's present attitude and the
concessions he Iks promised to make
and declared their intsntion to vote
for tbe second reading.
The general opinion this afternoon
is tbat the borne rule bill will now
certainly pass tbe eecnnd reading.

death is announced to-day. Prior to
doing so I bad looked npon an en-

the late Mrs. Bancroft. The face is
that of a gentle, earnest and thought
