WAtHiNOTON, December 15. Stna'.u
Among the memorials presented in
the Senate today t one by Senator
Frye, from the Bath, Me., Board of
Trade, against the admission of foreign
built ships to Ameiioan registry.
Among the bills Introduced and re
ferred were the following: By Sen
ator Vance To rfpeal chapter 27 of
the ads of 1883, relating to the civil
BOTVtCB ' ' '
The following bills were reported
from tlie PoetofOce Committee sod
placed an the calendar: To amend
the post! mosey order system ; to ex
tend the free delivery tvitem.
Senator Van Wvck offered a resolu
tion calling on the Secretary of War
for information as to bow the Missouri
River Commission has apportioned
certain money apornptiated in tbe.
river and harbor bill lor improvement
of the Missouri river at Omaha and
other points in Nebraska and Iowa.
The resolution gave rise tr considera
ble dicti9sion,pending which Ben
atcr Cullom presented the con
ference report on the interstate
commeCi bill and asked that
it be printed, and suggested that
he would next Monday ask the ben
ate to take it np, when, if debate were
desirfd, it mixtit be postponed. He
hoped, however, that no Senator
would innlat an a motion to postpone
It until aftr the holidays.
Senator Hoar said the matter was
one in which bis constituency had a
very deep inleieat. It required deep
study, not only on the part of those
who had to vote on it, but on the part
of the bnsineHS interests of the coun
try, and he intimated that, as the
Christmas holidays would probably
begin nnxt week, the report should go
over until after the holidays.
Senator Cullom did not know that
the Satiate would have any holiday.
All that he desired now was to have
the renirt laid on the table and print
ed, tie wou dcallit up early next
week, aud then if there was a desire
to dhcus) it it might bo over, but he
preieired not to aitree to that at this
time. He read a statement explana
tory of the report, and said the object
of the bill, as reported, was to I ring
about that stability of rates which the
railroads themselves were trying to
bring about under the system of pool
ing. He believed that the appre
hension expressed by the Senators
from Uonnec'lcut would prove to be
Senator Pla't, one of the conferees,
said he had withheld his eignature
from the report. He ' might, per
haps (although with great reluct mce),
have consent d to all the recommenda
tions of the report but one that was
the surrender i,t the provisions of the
Senate bill directinn the commission
ers to investigate the system of, pool
ing between railroad, and the substi
tuting fr that provision the absolute
prohibiting of pooling, lie thonght
the public prejudice existing against
pooling by railroads was Urgoly the
result of mlsoppruhenBion as to the
nature and tiled of the pooling sys
tem upon the general welfare of the
country. All interstate commerce by
railroads was transacted today under
fiooling arrangements, and the aluo
ate prohibition of such a system
migi.t work great evils.
After further diecustion the report
was ordered printed, and Senator Cul
lum gave notice that he would call it
up next Tutsdav, and if the Senate
desired to discuss it at length it might
o over until atinr uie nouuaye, out
is was very anxious to secure final
action at this Bession. particularly as
the Supreme Court had rulud recently
that it was the proviuce of Congress
to legislate on the tuhject.
Senator Mcl'bereon otleretl a resolu
tion, which was adopted, calling on
the Secretary of War for information
as to the proposed bridge scross the
Arthur Rill, between New Jersey and
The resolution offered by Senator
Van Wvck in relation to the Improve
ment of the Misaouri river, was again
taken up and further disencsed.
Before rouil :ig to a vote on the reso
lution the hour of 2 o'clock arrived,
when the unfinished business of yes
tmdav (the bill repealing iho tenure
of ollure a-t) came up and whs, on mo
tion of Sdnator Hoar, allowed to Maud
over till tomorrow as unfinished busi
ness. Senator Piatt then called up his res
olution that En'OQtlve nominations
shall hereafter he considered in open
session, exuept when (therwise or
dered by a vote of the Senate.
Senator Morrill moved an amend
ment by striking out the words "Exec
utive nominations" and inserting in
lieu those oi the words "reciprocity
treaties, so called." lie bad no ob
jection to that change.
Senator Piatt characterised the
amendment as a case of "Greeks bear
Senator Hoar moved to lay tuo reso
lution on the table. Agreed to yeas,
33; nays, 21.
Senator Beck called np (he bill pro
hibiting Siina'.ors or H pres -ntative
from acting as attorneys for subsidized
railroad companies, tiio question be
ing on the Btibetitule reported from
the Jud.aa-y Committee. He op
posed the substitute and advocated
the bill s introduced by himseif, aud
which, he eaid, had been denounced
by leading members of the Judiciary
Committee as an inf ingement of the
rights ol attorneys in too Seca'.e and
House. The substitute reported by
the Jodiciary Committea was so ubsj
lutely unjust and absurd, that he was
anxious to hear the grounds on which
the committee presented it The
subsiitute was a burlerque on all
legislation, and was so intended by
the chairman and leading members of
the committee. If it wai eo intended,
then the committee had coma short of
its duty. II the original bill wasa bad
one, tin committee should have so
reported j but Instead of doing so, it
had adopted allot the original bill and
had carried it to a .point where no
body nuM vote for iu
Hanatir Pugh, a member of the Jo
diciary Committee, justified the sub
stitute, H was opposed to all such
legislation, bnt if it was to be enacted,
ha would have it carried out to its full
Senator Beck declared the substi
tute was unworthy of the committee
that reported it, and that the commit
tee's action was in bad faith. The ob
ject was to defeat a meaiure which
Senators dared not vote down di
rectly. Senator Pugh did not believe the
Senator from Kentucky intended to
charge the committee with bad faith.
Senator Beck did not know what the
Eentleman considered bad faith. He
a 1 given his opinion ai to a rcpoit
mads to the Senate.
Senabr Pugh said if there was to be
adj legislation on the subject he
would haw it aa comprehensive as It
had been mad in tha ambatltate.
Senator Beck denounced it as in
decent for Senators and members to
sit and vote npon measures affeotiag
great railroad eompanlea to ths amount
of hundreds of millions while having
the money of those companies In their
pockets. Public right, common de
cency and the honor of every Senator
and Representative waa Involved in
having the world to understand that
no man was sitting in either bonse as
the hireling or the retained attorney
or the agent of the subsidised railroad
corporations. He had introduced the
bill in good faith, thinking it to be a
bill which every Senator would be glad
to vote for so as to prevent any such
suggestion, and he ws amaced at find
ing a substitute reported for it, which
was going far beyond any po.nt that
any Senator would want to go. He
wanted a fair vote taken on the bill ai
introduced, and not to have the bill
killed by ii discretion.
Senator Maxey advocated ths origi
nal bill, and on beha f of his absent
colleague (Senator Coke) offered an
amendment, which has the eflect
substantially of retiring the bill to its
original form as introduced by Senator
Senator Call expressed his decided
opposition to the bill. There was no
necessity for it. II tbe Senator from
Kentucky knew of any such case as
he suggested tbe remedy was In a
resolution of expulsion. He reminded
the Senator that he (Beck) had
voted sgainat the bill forfeiting
the Northern Paciflo railroad grant,
while he (Call) and others onprsed
to the Beck bill had voted for the for
feiture of tho Northern Pacific grant ;
but it was rot to be presumed that
the vot's had not been given honestly.
The Beck bill nr 100 such bills would
not bsve the eff.ct proposed. It the
Senators were to be bought they
rvoald bs bought all the same. He
argusd, also, that the bill was uncon
stitutional. Without reaching a vote the Senate
went into executive session, and when
tbe doors were reopened adjourned.
The Speaker appointed Messrs,
Caldwell, Eden and Cooper aa con
ferees on the electoral count bill.
After the transaction of some unim
portant routine business the House, in
the morning hour, went into Commit
tee of the Whole, Mr. Crisp (Ua.) in
the chair, on the bill for the allotment
of land in severalty to Indians,
Pending consideration the commit

pired, aud the bill went over as unfin
Oa motion of Mr. Warner (Mo.), a
bill was passed bringing the cities of
Atlanta, Oalvtst on, St Paul. Minne
apolis, Indianapolis, Kansas City and
Omaha under the provisions of sec
tion 6191 of the Revised Statutes,
which rf quires national banks in cer
tain cities to keep on band in money
of the United States a sum equal to
25 per cent, of their circulation and
The House then went into Commit
tee of the Whole, Mr. Hammond (Ua.)
in the chair, on the sundry Civil Ap
Mr. Dingley (Me.) offored aa amend
ment appropriating (147,500 for the
cons'ruction of a lighthouse supply
steamer for use on the At antic and
Gulf coasts. Adopted yeas, 91; nays,
' Mr. Symes (Col.) offered several
amendments, increasing tbe appropri
ations for the Signal Service Bureau,
and these being opposed by Mr. Ran
dall, he proceeded to oritioise that
gentleman's action as chairman of the
Committee on Appropriations. He
did not envy the gentleman who lived
upon the Atantio coast his narrow
minded statesmanship which did not
croes the Mississippi river. If the
gentlomen did lot grow fitsttnough
on the principles of statesmanship to
extend some privileges to tbe people
of the West, those psople would see
that a man waa made chairman of the
Committee on Appropriations whose
vision expended beyoud the few signal
stations on the Atlantic coait.
Mr. Randall, in reply, said that the
pending bill carried mora appropria
tions for the Pacific coast than any
similar bill for years past. He thonght
he knew his duty moderately well, and
he did not propose to be frightened
from the performance of that duty
certainly not by words of such dems
gognery as bad emanated from the
Kentlunan from Colorado,
Mr. Symes thonRht the gentleman
had read the dictiounry f ir the mean
ing ol tho word deioagoguary. A
demagogue, is defined by the beet po
litical writers of this country, was a
tniiu who was a protended leader of a
great party, and who had as his only
stcck In triJe the ability to go through
appropriations with a clioeae paring
knife, and cutting oft a fow drllars
here and a few dollars there, make a
reduction of 'i.OOd.OOO from the ap
propriations of last year. If that was
the statesmanship of the great leaders
of the Democratic party liod save the
country from such tUUustnanship.
Langhter and applause.
Mr. Randall predicted that the Dem
ocratic party would liva and thrive
and control in this country, without
regard to the gnntletian's opinion as
to its leadership. Applause.
The amendments aer rejected.
Pending further consideration of the
bill, .the committee rose.
Mr. Bun s (Mo.), from the Commit
tee on Appropriations, reported a bill
to supply a deficiency in the appro
priations lor puhlio printing. Com
mittee of the Whole. I' appropriates
185,000 for public printing and bind
ing; $17,000 for dietiuct.ve paper for
United States securities, and $6000 for
the loi'olnage of silver.
The Houb then adjourned.
All Medical Authorities
Agree that catarrh is no more nor lem
than an inflammation of the lining

Nasal catarrh and all catarrhal aflec

to treat them as such. No conscien

It is held by eminent medical men
that sooner or later a epecifio will be

humanity sutlers. The facta justify

MURDER AM ROBBERY.
A CLVB Or H EG HOES ORGANIZED
Cotton, Provisions , Whisky, Etc., and
if Detected Sworn to Klil tbe
Charleston, 8 O., December 15.
A week ago the New and Courier pub
lished A dispatch from York county,
8. C, repotting that a white man
named John Lee Goods had been ro
beaten and mangled tbat he soon
died, and tbat fonr colored men had
been arrested as the murderers and
committed to jail. It was stated that
the theory was that some of the ne
gioes bad been detected by the bjy iu
the act of stealing cotton from his
father's field, and tbat to prevent their
arrest tbey killed him. There was
great excitement in the county in co:
tequence, aud reveral more arrests
were made. The Newt and Courier, to
get at all ths facte, sent a special c r
respondent to York, and will publish
tomorrow tbe result of bis investiga
tion, There is evidently an alnrming
state of affairs in York county, and it
is proved conclusively that an org-ni-ration
exists among ths colored peo
ple which contemplates murder In tt.e
event of the detection of any member
accused of crime. Twenty six negroes
are now under arrett The inqaeston
the body of the mnrdered boy be
fore a discreet jury brought out ail
the facts. One of the negroes
turned State's'evidence, and another
admitted tbat he killed a man who
was murdered in tbe county eighteen
months ago. Several of the colored
witnesses at the inquest swore dis
tinctly that they had a club or clau in
the county f r the purpose of stealing
cotton, provisions, whisky, .etc. Tha
members were to steal whatever tbey
wanted, and, if detected, were sworn
tt kill the person who deter ted them.
The club had different names, but was
general 'y known as tbe ' Ri-ing Star
Lodge No. 24 of the Grand United Or
der of National Laborers and Protect
ive Society of North America."
The charter came from Charlotte,
N. O , and is dated December, 1884.
The charter however, would seem to
show tbat the society had ouly benev
olent and fraternal objects. Among
other things revealed at the icqaeet
was a plot to waylay Mr. E las Inman,
who was thought to have inouey, but
the aaaassin missed him.
One of the witnesses gave a detailed
account of tbe murder of the poor
boy, John Lee Goode, and also the
names'of his accomplices in crime.
The talk of a general lynching has
abated, but the indignation and un
rest are intense.
A Report In Aukwor to Senator In
Washington, December 14. The
Secreta-y of the Treasury transmitted
to the Senate a report prepared by Mr.
Miller, Commissioner of Internal Rev
enue, iu answer to Senator Ingalls's re
solution calling for information in re
gird to the operations ot the oleomar
garine law. By this report It appears
that since November 1st, the date at
which the law went into operation,
special taxts provided for therein
have been assessed on , thirty-four
manufactories of oleomargarine; on
204 wholesale dealers and on 20,4 '5
retail dealers. The number ol pound
of oleomrrgarioe asnersed at 2 cents
per pound is "4,430,140. A table
is given, showing tha number of per
sons and firms who have paid the
special taxas imposed and the quantity
of oleomargarine aaeeed in eflch
collection dis rict of the United Slates.
This shows that tbo principal collec
tions were in the First Illinois Dis
trict, where 2.613,700 pounds were
taxed. The other districts where the
collections were above the average
were as follows: Colorado, 101,951
pounds; Kaniaa, 278.551 ; Third Mas
cachuwtts Dn trier, 156,394 : First New
York District, 191,079; Second New
Yoik District, 255,454; Rhode Island,
284,320. Of the manufacturing eetab
linhmetits, 10 are in tho First Illinois
D.sttict, 6 in Kanr-as, 3 in the Second
New York District, 3 in the Eigh
teenth Oiiio District and 5 in
Rhode Island. None of tbe
other dhtricts contain more than
two factories. The wholesale dealers
are coffined principally to the f blow
ing district': Firxt Illinois, second
Misachu8;tts, first Michigan, Khode
Inland and Lmisiata. Then) are not
more than (our wholesale dealers iu
any one cf the other districts. Tue re

the First Illinois District, third Massa

Khode Island, firt Pennsylvania and
Connecticut, ia tho order named
The above figures are taken from tho
returns so far as received. In the case
of Rhode Island the collection rt turns
ant complete only to Novembrr 15;h,

ttie districts In which the collections
appear to be small.
