Washington, Teb. 11 A curious 11
lusttatlon of tho extremely loose busi
ness methods of coiiricss was futnlshed
In the senate today, when Ml. Vest, of
Missouri, teported back fioni the com
mittee on commerce a house bill which
had been refeiied to that committee
and stated that the same bill pieciselv
had passed both houses at tho ptesent
session, had been nppiove'd and signed
b the president and was now a law.
Tho diplomatic and consulni appio
pilntlon bill, cairylng' an asgiegate of
$1,C05,30S, was pushed after some caus
tic temarks by Mr. Morgan, of Ala
bama, on an Item of $10,000 foi a min
ister plenipotentinty to the states of
Is'lcaiagua, Costa Rica and Salvador.
Two of these states, he said, had, ac
coidlng to newspaper lepoits, foimod,
with Honduras, a new government,
called the Qi eater Republic of Cen
tral America, Bending a minister to
"Washington who had been formally
received by the president and closing
their lespecthe foielgn olllces, so that
an Ameilcail minister could hold no
diplomatic lclatlons with them hull
's idualh Hut, of this change, the
piesident of the United States had not
condescended to glo any Infoimatlon
to congress or the people.
Mr. Moigan spoke of the state of af
fnlis us having brought about a ery
awkwaid complication; but he said
that he had no pioposltlon to make
about it. Neither had Mi. Hale, of
Maine, who was in charge of the bill,
and who lecognized the force of Mi.
Moi gan's obsmvntians, but said that
the committee on uppiopiintlons had
thought it better to leae the usual
Item In the bill and let the state de
pal tment ariange the dltllculty in a
was that might seem best to It.
An ugieement was reached to have
tho Note on tho confeienee lenoit to
the Immigration bill taken at 4 p. m.
At 1 JO o'clock the senate went Into
executive session on the ntbitratlon
treats, and continued to sit with closed
doois till 4 45 p. m , when it adjourned.
THE LIBRARY ROBBHRY.
It has been ascei tallied that the rob
bery of piiceless uutogiaphs peipe
trated at tho congtesslonal llbiaiy was
elteeted by means of duplicate keys.
It has been In piogtess since last Au
gust. A partial examination discloses
oei 100 documents missing Tlio
room In which they were kept was one
of the upper chambers of the Ubiaij,
and the confusion incident to the
change of iuaitors to the new build
ing is beliecd to have facilitated tne
thefts. The two clerks of the congres
sional llbraiy, Philip McElhone and
Louis McKay Tinner, who disposed
of some of the missing documents in
New York, and who uie accused ot the
theft, waived examination bofoie the
United States commlssionei this
morning. Turner was committed in
default of ball and McElhone was le
leased on W.000 ball.
The dlscovety of the absti action of
these documents hus led to an older
foi genet at examination of the ai ch
ives of the libiary, which Is now in
A BIMETALLIC DEBATE.
A misplaced semicolon in the bill
providing for the lefunding of the
bonded Indebtedness of the several tei
litories was the innocent cause of a
wholly unexpected debute on the mon
etary question in the house todaj, last
ing two or tluee houis. Two or tlneo
jeais ago congtesfl authoilzed Arizona
to sell some "gold bonds" upon the te
quest of M A. Smith, then a delegate
flom that ten Hon, because the tei
lltoiy could get better tonus foi such
bonds than foi "lawful nionej" bonds.
The bill under discussion authorised
the lelundlng of these paitlculai bonds
in gold bonds, but the piesence of a
semicolon in the text suggested to tho
mind of Mi. McMIliln, of Tennessee,
the possibility that the bill could be
so constt ued as to vvanunt the Issue of
gold bonds for all the bonds mentioned.
Tiom Mr. Payne's. New Yoik, deelaia
tion that he could see no haim that
Vvould utise If all the bonds weie made
pas able in gold, a lively discussion
sprang up in which many membeis took
puit, and which took a. wide lange.
The most impoitant statements In the
couise of the debate weie those by Mi.
Knox, of Massachusetts, in chaige of
tho bill to the effect that the country
was upon a Bold basis, that It would
doubtless continue on that basis, that It
would not Initiate any international
blmatallic confeienee and that there
was sufficient statesmanship In the Re
publican paity to provide for the laig
est possible use of sllvei, and that it
would not be through the unlimited
coinage of tho metal.
At. Mr. Knox's suggestion the semi
colon was replaced by a comma; on Mr.
McMllltn's suggestion the bonds, olhei
than the Arizona gold bonds named,
were made payable In the "lawful
money of tho United States," and the
bill was then passed.
The sundry civil appropi lation bill
for the year ending June SO, 189S, was
teported by Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, and
placed on the calendni.
Mr. Baitlett, of Georgia, presented
the unanimous repoit of elections com
mittee No. 1 upon the contest of Thos,
K. Watson vs, J. C. C. Black fiom the
Tenth district of Geoigla In favor of
Black and stated he would call It up
at the tlrst opportunity. The bill male
ing appropriations (a total of $9,253,325)
for fortifications for the year ending
June 30, 1S9S, was consldeied and
The postofTIce appioprlation bill was
taken up In committee of tho whole
and discussed for an hour without ac
tion. The house then, at C.10, ad
