which states that that the congressman

"It is due to you and the public that I

The reasons for this are well embraced in
the short sentence, I can't afford it.
The expenses incidental to so
large a district are so great
that for the past three years my sal

Until the past year I had sufficient income
from my law business to meet the de

ceased. Necessity, therefore, as well as in
clination, Induces me to retire from pub
lic service at the expiration of my term. I
shall always feel grateful to my indulgent
constituents for the honor they conferred
upon me from time to time since 1S74.
But I have given the public all the service
I can well spare. I must devote the re

and be succeeded in getting him through
safely. Enos says he has spent the time
since the murder in Arkansas aud in Fay

Eansa3 Land Decisions
Washikgtok, Jan. 14. The rc"'-itions
heretofore-offered hy Mr. Call in the senate
in relation to the claims of Florida, under
the swamp land grant, and in relation to
alleged nnlawfnl selections of land in
Florida, were taken up and Mr. Call ad
dressed the senate upon them. The burden
of his remarks was that lands which were
not swamp and overflowed but which were
fit for cultivation had ben selected under
the swamp land act, to the injury of the
neonle's rights. He assorted that 200.000.-
000 acres had been selected and approved
in all the states as swamp and overflowed
lands, while everybody knew that no such
extent of territory (as large as Europe)
consisted of swamp and overflowed lands.
This was a fraud upon the people of the
United States for whom the public lands
should be held as a sacred heritage. Of
the 16,000,000 acres which bad passed in
Florida under the swamp and overflowed
lauds act he asserted that 11.000,000 w ere f
high and dry.
Mr. Plumb replied to Mr. Ca'.L He said
that the United States had granted to the
state of Florida mora than half of the
lands within its limits. The itato con
tained about 40,000.000 acres and more than
one-half of that had been given to the state
for various purposes. Every single acre of
land so granted had been p!ard nnder the
control of the legislature of Florida. Some
IG.000,000 or 1S.000.000 acres had been grant
ed as swamp and overflowed lands. The
senator (Mr. Call) bad ju-.t told the senate
that most of it was not swamp but arable
land: so much greater was the
dereliction of the senator's ntate If it had
betrayed its trust. Hs wished the senator
would say on the stump in his own state
what he said today. H (Mr Plumb) did
not care how much of the dirtv linen of
Florida was washed there and elsewhere.
That was a question to be settled between
the senator ana his constituents. tiu
(Mr. Call) had not said a word to
day that was in denunciation
of the conduct of the authorities of bis own
state. He would resign hi-, seat in the sen
ate if he were to bring forward such a com
plaint against his own state after being
too cowardly to proclaim it on the stump
within its borders. Let the senator go
back to the people who sent him here; let
him go back to the legis-ature which hs
despoiled the public domain. The charge
is unworthy of the senator's position to
his stale. It does not become him nnle&s
he bus taken the stump in his own statu
and denounced at every cross-roads the
bad actions of the people who committed
them to appeal to the senate on that sub
ject. Especially does it not btcorae him to
impugn the motives of men on this floor
(menuing members of the sub-committee on
public lands) who did not agree with him

Mr. Plumb went on to say that Mr. Call
had some sessions ago appealed to him as
chairman of the committee on public
lands to rport a bill to ratify and confirm
i the title to certain railroad lands In rlor
,da b0 tlmt the MeKtA frauds, said Mr.
Plumb, were to be condoned under certain
circumstance, but were never to be con
doru-d in speech. The senator had been
always in the habit of impugning sena
tors, covertly or openly; and be (Mr.
Plumb) had sometime been inclined,
not to reply to him, but to convict of false
hood. But there are s'ine accusations
which are lost in the accuser.
Mr. Plumb went on to say that he be
lieved in the virtue of the people of Florida
more tirmJy than their senator did. He
the public dumxin had been committed In
Florida He hoped the senator would
apeak to his own people on the subject
Mr. Call replied to Mr. Plumh He said:

tormaace of puoltc duty. If the things na
says were true and if I was as bad a man
as he is, as weak a man as hs is, as vain aa
he is, even if I were all that he himself is
and all that be says I am, still it would
remain true that a large number of people
have been deprived of their rights on these
lands. The only interest that can be Dro-
moted by denving those rights is not that
of people of the united states, not the in
terest of purity and honesty and justice,
bet the interest of the few men whe
have made and are to make enormous
profits out of the improper execution o
the laws. The state of Florida is tin
equal of any other state; its representative.
are the equal of those of other states. 1
should scorn them if I came down to th
level of manhood and character of the
senator from Kansas."
Mr Dolph as a member of the commit
tee oa public lands made an explanation
in justification of the action of tbatcotn
mittee in the last congress In respect to a
resolution of Mr. Call's on the same sub
ject, and Mr. Call disclaimed having muie
or attempted to make the sligbtesl imputa
tion on that committee.
Without action on the resolution the

Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, moved that the
bou-e go into committee of the whole for
consideration of the bill to provide for
, tvn entries oi lanus in UKianomn.
t This was antagonized by Mr. Adam, of '
Illinois, who wished the bouse to consider
the Silcott matter and the motion was de
feated, 65 to OT.
Mr Bland, of Missouri, demanded tell
ers, declaring that a matter Involving tho
interests of 100.000 people should be con
sidered prior to one which involved onlyr
the individual interests of member.
The friends of the Oklahoma bill were
again defeated W to!0S.and Mr. Ad ami
called np the Silcott report, accompanied
oy the otu appropriating tio.wo to reim

Mr. Butterworth Has my friend any

Mr. Hemphill Xot at all; because Ihava
Mr. Butterworth Then this is an ex

Mr. Hemphill I o not know any time
a man can be more virtuous than when it
does not cost him anything L-iughtrrl.
Mr. Butterworth But is ft a fir divis

it was not true teat members of the Dem

Mr. Hemphill replied that he had never
heard of Mien a thing, and his denial was
corroborated br Mr. Adams, who stated
that nothing of the kind bad come to tne
knowletfiie of the committee.
Mr. Holman. of ludiana, contended that

lost their salaries.
Pending the debate the house adjourned.
