of the next me'g, vetoing the hill

Mr. Mateon 1ml J moved ita refer

I . slating llit the reference of the
bill would be the rndof it, moved that
ita roDeidention be postponed until

done, lie nould see no good lenHnn
why this hill should be singled oat for
report on Friday fioin-naiong the num
ber f vetoed bil 8 then Ircfoio the
coin mi' tee.
Mr. Burrows could not teo that the
committee was iuc 'itied to ait very
diiiirent'y on the veto megengta, and
he did not think tlio inatrneiiona to
report back a spuria! bill would great'y
interfere wi h the purpose of the com
mittee n to the balance.
Mr. Jin kson I'll attacked the veto
H)licy ot the i'nsident, who, ho de

uuwjit y l''B reason was apparent
on lhe face of his message, lie was
in sympathy with a patty opposed to
pensioning Union 2oldinrg, and lie did
not proposs that any Union eoldier
should be pensioned if ho could
avoid it. It va slid that tbe Presi
dent meant right. He did mean right
to please a certain element in the
country, but not right to please hon
est, loyal people.
Mr. McMillin Toon. The present
President haa signed more private pen
sion billa than any other President in
the same apace of time.
Mr. Jackson And he baa vetoed
ten times more good ones than all
other President put together.
Mr. Ptriins Kas.J addressed hint
self to a consideration oi the pending
messages, and criticised the position
taken by the President that the gov
ernment should not a who ita soldiers
against quarrelsome propensities or
nn provoked assaults.
Mr. Mateon thought that the mes
sages should be considered carefully.
Uentlemon on the other side seemed
adverae to get at the I'reaident.
Demncrata were determined that tbe
President should have fair play, and
they would stand by that poiition. It
was not fair play to tbe President to
undertake upon a hasty consideration
tr pass a bill owr his veto.
Mr. Mragg Wis. raid that there
seemed to be an idea in the liouso
that it was the duty of the 1'iosident
to abdicate his ollice in favor of a ma
jority of the Committee on Invalid
nslotis. Whenever, in exercise of
i constitutional perogntives given
ti, he exnmined legislation to see
tether it was provident and wise, it
. is charged that he hnd perpetrated
..it outrage ou the American people.
Ho (Mr. JSrsgg) maintained that the
President was honestly discharging
his duty when in the exercise ol his
judgment he sout leg'alation back to
the Hons with his reasons for with
holding his approval. The House
Bhould a t upon the question, not with
demagogical speeches, but with judi
cial and deliberative consideration.
He (Mr, ltraggi was glad to llnd that
at lust there was a man iu ihe execu
tive chair who had the nerve, and
courage to place his hand upon legis
lation when he thought it improper,
whether it weie pension or railroad
legiKlation. Applause on the Hanio
cra'icsldel. dmgrcss had irnne alto-
other too mr iu the wuy of pension
egi'lation but there waa a class of
aohliera for whom there never was a
Vuice raised in the llonee. The v
weio the men who in April, May,
Junsand July, )Si;l, tilled the ranks
of the army actuated only hy patriotic
tlesirts to sustain the national Hug.
lk'foro the Home went further in pen
hiouiiig the dead wood of tho army it
should make sumo provision for the
wen who went to the front in 1X01.
He sent to the Ulerk's desk and had
read a letter fiotn one of these men
who ia at the Hampton r-'oldier's
11 )ino, comnendirig bis courso in re
gard to pensions, r.diculing the policy
of Congress and making use of such
atrong exprefs'ons m to lead Mr.
ltrowne, of lnd'iiiia, to inquire mucus
ttca'ly whatutr it win a veto message
that wns b log read.
Mr. Hu rowa's motion to ins'ruct
was rejected yen., 10!'; rays, 131
and the mersaue was referred to ttie
Committee ou invalid Pensions
The next message was vetoing a bill
granting a pension so Catharine Mc
Carthy. Mr. Matson moved iU; .ference to
(.tin Committee on Invalid PdiiBions,
and Mr. Browne moved instructions
requiring tho committee to report it
back on or before Monday next.
Mr. Brown criticised ihe action of
the l'nsden, and invoked Uod's
intK'y on tho mau who had the heart
to veto a bid (or the relief of a man
who bad died iu the line of duly to his
country. He faroastically retlmt.-d on
tbe manner in which the experienced
eoldier the Commander in Chief rf
thoarmy treited bis comrades. Hi
Kxcjllency belonged to that claw 1 1
mea who during the war were afraid
of nothing but danger, but now he
s'ood valorously armed cap-a-pie, with
ve'oes in bis hands, letween the tin
for tinate aoldieis and tbe Treasury of
tbe United States. President Cleve
land would go down to posterity as
the gret American objtctor.
Mr. Conger ia.l resented the lan--guaga
u ed by the President as throw
ing ehira upon the motives of Con
gress and as insultiug to the Union
Mr. lUynn Pa. took the same view
a id sngge-tedthat tbe Democrats who
tttood by the vetoes would have their
in nhcod very severely taxed.
Mr. Cannon III read in the vetces
thi story that wnile Cleveland waa
.President there would be no further
pmsion legis'ation. There were great
questions in this country calling for
tue attention ol tbe Kxecutive, yet
tbe Preaident brushed them all aetde
and appeared anxious to rater to no
body except that little lolld knot that
came from the solid South. He
.wanted to get their applause. They
'- cast 8 )Hd votes in nominating conven
tions. There be stood looking through
a gimlet bole with a magnifying glass,
bunting (or causes and heaping de
rision npon the heads of the poor
.men who lott their health in the i.er-
vice of the coontry. That waa statea
tranship. Applause on tbe Kepublican
aide, which was received with answer
ing applatre and laughter from the
Democrats. "Oil yea," contined Mr.
Cannon, "and I tell you that you wdl
have to defend it before November."
Renewed applause on Ihe Demo
cratic side. Tbe gentlemen who are
clapping their bands can defend it;
they have the kind of constituents
who believe in it. Applause and
laughter on the Kepublican miti.j
You will have to defend it before
November. These men who ars en
titled to their pensions, w.tli their
friends and with public opinion and a
aeuaeol justice in this country,, will
send a Congrats here which will pa'S
these bills and other proper pension
legislation over the Presidents veto."
Applause on the Kepublican side.
Mr. Mat'on drew a comparison be
twecn tbe work of Kepuhlicrn and
J emocratic Congresses, for tbe purpose
of pointing out that nearly all the pen
sion legislation of importance had been
enee'ed by Democratic Congresses.
Only a few days ago the Republicans
had filibustered agaicst a proposition
to raise monev lor tbe payment of
pensions. Ge.t'emen in talking about
these vetoes f irgot that nearly all cf
these bills had been vetoed by a Re
publican Couimiseiooer of Pensions,
Mr. Weaver la. thought that no
disrespect would be shown to the Pres
ident by Immediate action on the
veto, and he therefore opposed its ref
erence to a committee.

Mr. MaUon moved iti reference,
and in order to shut oil debate, de
manded (lie previous question.
Mr, (iroaveuor Ohio, who origi
nally introduced the bill, desired some
time to dinars it, and upon Mr. Mat
son declining to yield, the Republicans
refrained from voting aud thus broke
up a quorum.
A call of the llouaa was ordered and
the doors closed.
The Houto then industriously re
frained from doing anything for a
quarter of an hour, when further pro
ceedings under the call were dispensed
with; and having thus completed the
circle, the House ttarted out upoa
another one, tho Republicans again
refraining from voting, when another
call was ordered. The only thing
which prevented the completion of a
second circle web tbe arrival of the
hour of 5 o'clock, when under Ita pre
vious order the House adjourned.
The Striate. Seuator Plumb pr?-
sen'cd the petition of John A. Kirk-
Patrick a pension in whose iavor
lias been votoed.
The petition waa read in full. Ho
aaked the Senate to do him a small
act of justice and rasa this -bill over
tho veto. It was evident, he (aid,
that in vetoing this bill the President
hail relinquished his ollice ami made
himself "merely the month tdece of
some quill driving slave of tho cir
cumlocution Bhop, the Pension Office.
If the President had read tho papers
he never would have been so silly."
Heappea's to Congress againBt the
malignant injustice of the President.
Referred to tho Committee on Pen
On motion of Senator Edmunds, it
was ordered that the (Senate m.et at

pose of making free of toll the com

plained that his substitute did not
rcciguige the Canal Company as the
owners of the improvement,. It simply
contemplated (what the original act of
Congress contemplated) the making of
this canal free to commerce, and it
was to be done by leitiibursiug to the

tor Gibson, who said that the proposed
improvement would make very di
rect inland water communication be

on the Berwick bay. This bayou was
a navigable stream on which s'oam
boats bad been running for forty years.

remarkable mecs'gd the section of the
treaty wn'cn r.ad atlected the i'reai
dent so senaiblv." The committee
which had reported the bill had (he
eaid) thought thet it was regarding
the rights of tbe Indians. That arti
cle was in these words, "For the pur

Senator McMillan .defended and ex
plained tbe action ol tbe committee.
The amendment was rejected yea,
22, nays, 22.
S-na'or Harris argued against Ihe
amendment striking cut the item for
$2000 for Hiawasse river, Tennessee.
Senator McMillan defended it, re
marking that the Senate waa taking
on itsell the responsibility for appro
priations not lecommended by tbe
Committee of Commerce, not asked
by tho Board of Engineers. The
amendment was f greed to yeas, 25;
Senator Pugh argued against the
amendment reducing the appropria
tion for the Tennessee river at Mussel
Shoals from ;5l),000 to $250,000.
Senator McMillan defended the
amendment. He stated that the total
amount already expended on this
work was $2,574,C0t, the amount
necessary for its completion was $1,
470,000, and the amount which should
be expeuded for tho next fiscal year
was estimated at $55,000. The com
mittee had agreed to recommend 50
per cent, of that amount.
Tbe amendment was agreed to
yeas, 23; nay a, 22.
Sonator Blackburn opposed the
amendment sti iking out tbe item of
$5000 for the south fork of Cumber
land river, Ky. The amendment was
agreed to yeas, 23 ; nays, 20.
Senator Blackburn argued against
the Bmei.dment reducing the item for
trie Kentucky river from $2'D tH)0 to
$100,000. He btatcd that, with the
completion of the work (on which
trio SUto of Kentucky had already
expended over $1,000,000 and tho
United States over $500,000). there
would be six ftet draught of water ia
this liver for 200 miles all the year
round. It would drain as rich a lum
ber and mineiul region as could be
found on the continent.
Senator Vest defended the action of
the committee, and stated he was well
acquainted with the Kentucky rivir,
hitving been born on its banks, and
that unless ita character wns very
much changed it was a small, narrow,
deep Btream, with overhanging trees.
He was opposed to the idea of States
or companies undertaking works of
internal impiovement and then pro
poring to uulohd Biich works on tho
Fedeial Government. IU was in favor
of keeping in repair the live locks and
dams turned over to the Federal Gov
ernment by the S:a'e ( ( Kentucky,
but he would net construct now works
of tho kind.
Senator Blackburn Does the Sena
tor mean to be understood that the
contract between the Federal Govern
ment and the State of Kentucky in
1H79 stopped with the repairing ol the
tivo lecks and dams on the river?
Senator Vest 1 do, Mr. Blackburn.
I take issue with the Senator and sav
that the contract was that the Fed
eral Government aesumed not to io
pair these live locks, but to secure
Black water navigation for 200 miles
Without disposing of tbe amend
ment, the Senate adjourned.

during June was in the main nnfavor

in the present grassy condition of the
cotton crop, la many localities, es
pecially in Mississippi, Tesnessee and
Alabama, lands platittd in coiton have
been abandoned owing to tbe long

Dr. Win! imiih. Sii I ifnive a rule I have
obaerTed ft many years, tbe value of your
remedy promptina me to any. in reply to
your renueit, what I know of your CblH
Cure. The .irivate assurances of iu efficacy
I had, and the good results of its effects I
had observed on Mr. R. W. Meredith, who,
for more than fifteen years, had been fore
man of my cilice, Induced me io tesi n in
my family. The result have been entirely
satisfactory. The first ewe, was of two
years' etandina, in wnicn I neneve every

rary relief the chills returnina periodically
ana wltn seemingly moreaiea severiijr.
Your eure broke them at once, and there hat
hn no rAciirmnAji of them for more than
ii months. The other ease was ot a milder
form, and yielded more reaatiy to otner
remedies; but the chills would return at in
tervals until your medicine waa used, since
which time, now several months, they have
entirely disappeared. From the opportu
