took the Democrats aud l'opulibtb by ti.o
U toat and in thatcheerrul btyle acknowl
edged the courtesies of borne or the rormer
for their ictciit assistance m "adjourning
the House from time to time according to
t,ne Keed-DIngley piogiam.
This v.as all demonstrated when Mr.
Uuiid ene'euv oied again ycstei day morning
to set his Pacific lailioad resolution be
Icn the House on the plea, -widen lie suo
tamed well, that Uie House had a right
to know and to know at once w hat the At
torney General and other officers were
dolus In that important matter.
Mr. Dingley, as was expected, objected,
aun Mr Keed bUsUuned .Mr. Drngley, as
-was expected The Democrats aud Popu
lists generally w ent in for the Bland reso
lution, Mr. Bailey being committed to its
upport in a recent speech
It -was evident to the Speaker that the
Democrats "were again united, at least, for
the day, and when he bharply ruled Mr.
Bland "out, while he -was speaking, the
Democrats got lighting mad Mr. Bland
appealed, aud while he was again about
to bay something, Mr. Heed legiblated him
oft his feet, and recognized Mr Dingley
for the mc itable motion to lay the appeal
on the ta'ile Mr .Richardson protested
-vigorously, and half a dozen Democrats
were also protesting, when Mr. Reed
thunderedthU the only question before the
House -ft as the motioa to lav the appeal on
the table After the declaration that the
appeal w as not sustained, the Democrats
resorted to the demand for the yea and
nay. which rcbulted S7 to 75, in favor
of Mr Reed.
Mr Dingley then teeured a vote foi ad
J jumment without objection to next Mou
dny, fioiu Mondm to Thursday, and Urn
to Monday week.

the committee of the House to attend the
funeral of Judge Holman, and a resolution

The Indian appropriation bill Senate
amendments were all considered, and a
committee of conference appointed
The debate on the Senate amendments
began at a little after 1pm.
Mr. Cooper opened the debate, the pending
amendment being the opening up of the
Uucompahgre reservation Bis urg.iment
was on the line that If the v al uable asphalt
deposits were sold they would not go to
poor people but to capitalist- He advo
cated a lease of these instead of bale
He pointed out that the first persons to
w ant these valuablel ands were thego ernor
of Utah, its inspector of mines, Its secretary
of state, and an e.x-United States Senator
from Utah, through Thomas Lloyd as their
agent This did not mean, as Mr King had
wdd, that the "poor prospector" would i
hac a chance He quoted Lieut -loi.
Kaadlal, TJ S A , to show that the present
amendment, if passed, would be unoutragc
ou the Indians, and on common justice.
Mr Cooper argued that the effect of the
amendment would be to gie away prac
tically 23,000,000 tons of asphalt, be
cause the idea appeared to be to sell it at
$5 an acre.
Mr shot roth, of Colorado, said that the
real question was -wli-ther the Govern
ment bhould depart from its pulley in such
it alters The people of th "West regarded
tre amendment as au encroachment on pcr
b rial rights What right had the l'rusl
uent of the United States to say that
2.000,000 of acres shall be segregated
from use by the people The poliey, IT
applied, to any other State than Utah
would be resented by the citizens of such
State Again it was all foolishness to
Ubsumj the enormous value of the lands

umendment to noi-concur in the Sen ite

tA it ttie ve-n iienl, if it went into the
business, might get a few dollars in leases,
but the monopolies created would make
the pe ipl" pay 1U0 per cent of the alue
of the product
Mi Cooper asked Mr Shafioth if there
were only one gold mine in the United
States would lie be willing to sell the gold
mine lands at S-5 an acre.
Mr. Shafroth replied that the cases were
not ana'ogous, because there the Utah

Dear Sli-; 1 01 over a year I suffered
from a kidney dibease. which the doctors
called nephiltU or Inflammation or the
kidnevs. I had been under the doctors
care, "and tried many patent medicines
also, without obtaining relief. 1 suffered
intense pain in the reUon or tin kidnevs,
and at times was unable to attend to busi
ness, 11. v back being very weak. I heard
or Dr. Ilobbs Spaiagus ICidncv rills and
tried them, after taking three boxes I am
entirely cured. GI O N. STRATA HAN,

question he stated to be that there was a
-i al liable plec r property in Utah belong
ing to the peoph, which it it as proposed
to distribute an ong some of the people at
5 an acre It is proposed to glicaway
this land, not because it was light, but
because It was a fixed governmental t-ol-lcy.
Such a lollcy had already resulted Ju
the barring or the i eople out of their com
mon heritage In favor of gamblers and
speculators. "Was not that the history ol
the coal mines and the coal 1 arons, who
met cur bepieiiitiei to tax the people
as they pleased ? Mi. Maguirc agreed with
Mr. Ballev that one solution or the diffi
culty wou'd be to give the lauds to the
State or Utah Tor disposition, but not to
Individuals by the Federal Government.
- Mr. Uartholdt predicted that if the lauds
were opened the price of asphalt would
fall S10 a ton. ne cited a case in v liie.li
the opening of a mine had leductd the
previous price 123 per cent.
Mr. Saveis debited to know ir the price
would fall $10 a ton, did it not mean that
there were enormous quantities of ispbalt?
Mi. Bart'ioldt admitted the fact and went
on to say that there was no giganticscheme
in it. The Barber Asphalt Company, a
great monopoly, he taid, was lighting the
amendment; and speculator were also
opposing it for their own purposes
Mr Maguire poiuted out that the plan
of the Senate would only permit another
gigantic asphalt monopoly.
Mr. Bartholdt luplied th it the Bartholdt
monopoly was obtained from England aud
not from this count! y. v
Mi. Jett. of Georgia, opposed the amend
ment, because it was a flagrant example
of a legislativ e rider, which could not have
been pi.t on in the House, lie quoted
records to show that the Government had
no right to open the land:) to settlement
tutil arter the allotments had been made to
the Indians; and he said that he ivas m
formed by the Indian Commissioner that
such allot ments had not been made The In
dinns hud still an unextinguished title to
hinds proposed to be sold He opposed the
amendment for the furl her reason of the
danger of the creation or monopolies
possible by the Senate legislation. He
thought there was a "job" m the amend
ment, because the very moment the bill w as
signed, speculators will rush into the
mineral lauds and seize them The public
would practically have uo return He
offered an amendment that the opening or
the asphalt lands should only take place
six months after the passage of the Mil
He also advocated a $1 royalty per ton
for the asphalt.
Mi King, of Utah, tunde another argu
ment to show that thelndi.uis had no UMe
to the lands-a position held by ex-Sccie-tnij
or the Interior and other authorities
But, assuming that they have title, they
don't want the lands, as the are valueless
to them, as bhown by the special commis

Mr Dingley said that it w as agn ed that
tile deposits were very valuable, and that
at a rovalty of $1.50 there would be a

He advocated following the policy of Eng
land instead of applving the gcucral mln
eral law s of the United States He fav ored
the scheme of leasing the asphalt lauds,
which, he said, would sec-ire a benefit to

Mrs M'olaides Is in receipt of a tele

Greek editor of New York city, and the
accredited agent of the Greek union re
ferred to, coiicjmg his thanks to her for
her expression of sjmpathv in behalf of

that Mr Vlasto had been assured by tele

That two ladles in the t options occupied

Miss Barton explained to the reporter that

Miss Baiton wished it stated that the
American Red Cross was not preparing
an appeal ror funds for the sending of

"The American National Rod Cross," ahe
said, "is willing and anxious to co-operate
with the Red Cross societies of other
countries in relief of. the wounded and
suffering, but it nevei appeals nor solicits
for anv purpose."
