Washington". D. C, Dec. 9. The house
amendments to the senate bill for the relief
of graduates of the United States military
academy and to fix their pay, was among
the matters submitted by the presiding
officer to the senate today. The amend
ment provides that cadets shall be allowed
full pay as second lieutenants from date of
graduation to date of acceptance of com
mission. Amendment concurred in. The
bill now goes to the president.
Mr. Cameron moved that when the sen
ate adjourn today it will be till Monda
next. Agreed to yecs 23, nays 22.
The senate proceeded to the considera
tion of the bill introduced by Mr. Morrill
oa Tuesday declaring that the promise of
making any revision of the tariff in a
spirit of fairness to all interests appears so
obviously hopeless and impracticable that
any further attempts at revision by the
present congress are to be regarded as in
expedient and detriaiental to a revival of
the trade and industry of the country. Mr.
Morrill proceeded to address the senate.
Mr. Me-rrill admitted that a temporary sur
plus of revenue in the treasury may be
come inevitable: he would expend part of
it for the new navy and for seaboard de
fenses. Then the tobacco tax might be
abolished and dutiea on raw sugar reduced.
A proper revision of the tariff was desira
ble, but should be undertaken with great
Mr. Beck contended that the only honest
way of disposing of the surplus is to reduce
Mr. Sherman said there should be a re
duction of taxes, but such measures must
come from a Democratic house and that
party could not propose any plan; they
could not agree among themselves. The
only reduction in twelve years, he said,
was made in two 3-ears, when the Republi
cans controlled the house. The senate
could da nothing of itself, they must
await the house's pleasure. lie (Sherman)
would vote on a bounty on siuar.

agreement, and further conference was or
deied. Messrs. Forney, Randall and
Buttcrworth were appointed conferees.
On motion of Mr. Morrow.of California,
the senate bill was passed relinquishing the
interest of the United States in certain
lands in San Francisco to the city and
county of San Francisco.
Mr. Morrison, of Illinois, from the com
mittee on ways and means, reported back
the bill relating to the taxation of fraction

amendments thereto, with recommendation
of non-concurrence. Report agreed to and
Mr. Payson of Illinois, from the com
mittee on public lands, reported back the
bill to restrict the ownership of land in the
territories to American citiens, with

amendments were non-concurred in and a

In the morning hour the house resumed
consideration of the bill extending the frae

jiostoflicus ana post roads Mr. Cannon of
Illinois -vithdrevy. .he amendment submit

Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, on behalf of
that committee, offered an amendment so
as' to make the bill provide that
letter carriers be employed for the free de
livery of mail matter, as frequently as pub
lic business mav require, in every city con
taining a population of o0,000, and may be
so emploved at every place containg a pop
datijn ifot less than 10,000; or to any post
ullice which produces gross rcvenuo for the
proceeding liscal year of not less than

adopted and as amended the bill passed.
Mr. Ward, of Indiana, on behalf of the
committee on postoflices and past roadd,
called up and the house passed the bill
authorizing the employment of mail mes
sengers in the postal Berrice.
The house then resumed consideration of
the electoial-count bill. After brief rc
inrkw by .Messrs. Baker, of New York, and
Herbert, of Alabama, the house preceeded
to vte upon the house amendments to the
senate bill; they were agreed to, but the
amendmeuti offtr.'d by the minority of the
house committee we e 1 ejected. On mo
tion of Mr. Oat3 of Alabama, an amend
ment was adopted yeas 141, nays 110
striking out the clause directing the presi
dent of the .senate, upon the declaration of
the vote, to announce the names of the
ptrsons elected. The bill then passed ns
amended without division.
The house then went into committee of
the whole vMr. Springer of Illinois in the
chair) on the bill civaMng a department of
agriculture and labor.
Mr. Weaver, of Iowa, supported the
Mr. Reagan, of Texas, argued that there
was no warrant in the constitution for the
Mr. Anderson, of Kansas, supported the
bill. Theinteiest of capital was repre
sented in the cabinet, as were also the in
terests of the army and navy; why not let
the interests of seven-teuths of the people
lie n presented?
Mr. Hatch, of Missouri, defended the
measure against the charge that it was un
con-tutioual. there wa3 no constitutional
objection to the creation of the secretary of
the army, who had control of a little
top-heavy army of 2,000 men.
nor to the appointment of a secretary of
the navy to take charge of a littie " fleet
which might he hidden away between
Wa-hinglon and the mouth of the Potomac
river it was perfectly constitutional to
erect a department of the interior and let
a fer Indian- lie represented in the cabinet,
but the great agricultural interests of the
country must be insulted on this floor by
the remark that it would b unconstitu
tional to create a department of agriculture,
ami that the bureau of agriculture was
merely a bureau for the distribution of
pumpkin seed. The 300,000 of fanners
did not intend that the department
of agriculture should be blotted out
of the statue books of the
United States; it woukl not be blotted out.

the senate conferees accept the system pro
posed in the Reagan bill under "which the
shipper is entitled to sue for damages in
United States courts in his behalf. This
giyes shippers the option of making com
plaint to a commissioner or institution of
suits in federal courts. Railroads are pro
hibited from charging more for short than
for longer distance upon their own lines

being included within the longer distance,
and circumstances and conditions being the
same. But the commissioner is anthorized
upon application of a railroad and after in
vestigation of the facts to relievo the road
from the operation of the rule in special
cases. The conferees agree to the absolute
prohibition of pooling contained in the
house bill. The main features of difference
are on the questions publicity of rates, and
the provisions of the two bills have been
merged so as t require each railroad to
make public rates between points upon its
own road as proposed in the house bill, and
in addition the commission is required to se
cure publicityof through rates insofar as
may be necessary.

endar. In case the electoral votes shall not
have been completed before the 5th calen

houses no further recess shall be taken by
The Baldwin Murder Case.
Atchisox, Kan., Dec. 9. The Cham
pion has a special from Topeka announc
ing that the supreme court has the delayed
opinion in the celebrated Baldwin murder
cac this evening. The opinion, whicli is
very lengthv and exhaustive, refuses thede
fondant a new trial and affirms the sentence
of death passed on him by Judge 3Iartin,
of the Atchison district court a year ago.
The verdict gives general satisfaction "in
this communit where the crime was com
mited. There has not been any doubt of
the guilt of Baldwin, although it wa
feared that the supreme court nu'cht ie
verse the decision on narrow technicality.
Baldwin's crime was the murder of his
sister, Mar, b- chloroform, on the night
01 July 7, lbSo. lie was suspected from
me nrst anu ins conduct during tne coro
ner's investigation left no room for doubt
and after a stobbornlv contested trial last
ing a week the jury speedily brought in a
verdict of cuiltv. Although he is under
sentence of death his sentence under the
peculiar laws of Kansas amounts simply to
lite imprisonment in the pcnitentiarv. He
is a mere boy, not yet 2 1 years of age, and
lias a young wile aud baby living here, the
babv having been born since his father's
imprisonment in the state penitentiary.
ioi'EKA, ivan.. ucc. "J. lne supreme
court handed down the decision in the
Baldwin murder cruse from Atchison todav
affirming the conviction of the prisoner
The decision is an able and elaborate one
showiug each alleged error, and concludes
as follows. The irravitv of the ofTenec of
which the prisoner has been convicted, th;
peculiar ( ireumstances surrounding the
care of the great earnestness and abilHy
with which counsel for the prisoner have
pressed their points for service up
on tins court, nave led us
to examine the record with great care. The
testimony given, as well as every point
made and authority cited, have been con
sidcred with that anxious attention which
the consequences of a conviction deni'ind.
but we are forced to the conclusion that
the case hm been well and fairly tried, that
errors committed are technical and uniin
portant, and not such as would justify a
reversal of the conviction. We must, there
fore, affirm the judgment rendered.
