prior lo the meeting of the Hciiut. Two
subji-rts wrr under consideration. One was
Willi re fere nc to putting all cleiks on lb
annual li.ts, payment to b made out of lb
contingent fund. '1 Iter was a general scull
mnl lu fsvor of doing this, but tb question
of lu legality being raised, no conclusion
was reached. Il Is Inferred from what was
said that the legal doubt will he snllli lent to
defeat the scheme, allhoiiuh that is not
absolutely certain. The other subject was;
"Hball (senator L'oks's ieech on lb Mouth
ern election outrage. Ih' snswered."
Th conclusion, while not formally x
pleased. Was thai tbeie should la! 110 further
(lim-uasjon of th subject at this session.
A fo r Ihe adjoin mucin of th Krnste, th
Repiihllc.il caucus resumed it sitting ami

ment of clerks which would result In an
overdraft Uxm the contingent fund was
Illegal, and, therefore, lb scheme to mske
all committee clerks annual clerk will lad.

should be spared tho necessity of using bis
retnulnlug eye to conduct bis olhVlalcor-
rcspomif nco. it wns aho niuilly decided not
to contin'.ie tho debate on ihe Soiilbern
election outrages. The general opinion, so
far as expressed, was that Ihe Nenate might
reasonably expect to lie able to adjourn
Wednesday or Thursday of next week.

Wasuinuton, March 27. The resolution
heretofore offered by Mr, Mitchell authoris
ing tho Committee on Minos and Mining to
continue its impilry into the canso of delay
in considering uncontested cases In the min
eral divisions of Ibe general landollleo was
taken up and referred to tho Coiniiiitleo on
Mines and Mining.
Tho resolution heretofore offered by Mr.
Butler deducing that the tenure of the rres
ident pro lent, docs not expire at the meet
ing of Congress ufler a recess, but Is held ut
the pleasure of the hViiulc, was taken up,
and Mr. George made a ronstitulional argu
ment iu opposition to it.
. Mr. Kvarts said that after a careful exam
ination n( tlie Constitution be was convinced
that thero was really no doubt of the coin la
tency of the Seuulo to chooso a presiding of
llcer to net whenever the occasion should
arise, and that il would be very Inconvenient
to tolerate .my opposite view. He bad pre
laired a resolution which he thought would
cover ull thu point, it was in tills lan
guage: Resolved, That II la competent to the Pen
ate to elect a President pro tempore, who
ahull hold the oilier during the pleasure of
the Nenute ami until another Is selected, sod
shall execute th duties thereof whenever
the Vice 'President Is absent.
Mr. Butler thought that thetpieallounuubt
to bo settled, but as the Kcnate was not likely
to remain in session more than a week or ten
iluvs longer there could lie no Inconvenience
in letting Ibi mutter remain as II wss. He
therefore suggested that hla ow n resolution,
and that by Mr. Kvarts. should lie refernil
to Iho Coiumitlee on I'rivileees and KleO'
lions. This, after a protracted session, wss
Mr. (ull one red a resolution, which was
refernil in the Cniumitli' un Military Af
fairs, reciting that an appropriation of inn,'
nisi wns made in IohA to enable Ih Ni-n lary
of War to aciitiire a giNwl and Valid title to
the Forlajlmwn military reservation in Texas
and to extinguish nil claims for Its pajt use
and occupancy; that by reason of disnilli's 11.
lo respective aliurea of clalinauls the law had
never been executed, and that din liuienlal v
evidence on III lu Ihe War Ivpartnirnt
showed Hint $.si,uil would be a large price to
I my for llin proert.v ami Its osvupaiicy, and
nstructing the Committee oil Military Af

of War to withhold payment of any
