This proposition provides for a non

eighteen employes who, from long

Washington, March 20. The houso
Friday again proceeded immediately
after the reading of tho journal to con

After debate the resolutions wcro

Tho following is tho text of tho reso
lutions regarding Ambassador Bayard,
reported February 25, from tho com
mlttco on foreign affairs.
Whorcas. Thomas F. Bayard, ambassador of
tho United States to Groat Britain, said In a
publio speech delivered In Boston, England, on
August S, 1805. as follows:
' Ho (tho president ot tho United States)

of tho United States.
Whcrqas, Thomas F. Bayard, ambassador of
tho United States to Great Britain said lu a
publio speech delivered In Edinburgh, Scot
land, on November 7. U05, as follows:
"In my own country I havo witnessed tho In
satiable growth ot that form ot state
socialism styled 'protection' which I
boltovo has dono more to foster
class legislation and create inequality
ot fortune, to corrupt publio ltfo, to banish
men of Independent mind and character from
public councils, to loner tho tone of national
representation, blunt publio conscience, crcato
falso standards in the popular mind, divorco
ethics from politics and placo politics upon
tho low level of a mercenary scramblo than
any other single cause.

tatingly allied Itself with eveiy policy which
tends to commercial isolation, dangerously do-
pletcs tho troasury, and saps the popular con'
soionco by schemes of corrupting favor and
largcsso to sroclal classes whose support Is
thoroby attracted. Thus it has dono so much
to throw legislation Into tho political market,
where Jobbers and charterers take tho place ot
statesmen;" therefore, bo It
Hesolved, that it is tho senso ot tho houso
of representatives that Thomas P. Bayard,
ambassador of the United Statos to Great
Britain, in publicly using the languago abovo
Quoted has committed an offense against dip
lomatic propriety and an abuso of the priv
ileges of his oxaltcd position, which should
make him tho representative ot tho wholo
country and not of any political
party. Such utterances nro whol
ly inconsistent with that prudent
deltcato and scrupulous reservo which he,
himself, while secretary of state, enjoined upon
nil diplomatic agents of the Unltod States In
ono speech ho affronts tho great body of his
Countrymen who boliovo in tho policy of pro
tection. In the other speech ho offends all his
countrymen who beliovo that Amoricans are
capablo of self government. Therefore, as tho
immediate ropreseetativo of tho American
peoplo, and in their name, wo condemn and
consuro the said utterances of Thomas F.
Hesolved further, that in tho opinion of tho
houso of representatives publio speeohes by
our diplomatic Or consular officers abroad,
which display partisanship, or which condemn
any political party, or part? policy, or organ
ization of citizens in tho United States, are In
dlrcllctlon of tho duty of such officers, Impair
their usefulness as publio servants, anddimln
Isn the confidence whloh they should and may
command at homo and abroad.

on the Cuban resolutions.

In tho meantime Mr. Sherman re
turned and he expressed tho hope that
the motion to adjourn over would not
be agreed to unless there was first an
agreement reported as to a time for
taking a voto on the Cuban resolutions,
I To that proposition a strong objec
tion was made by Mr. Halo (Hep., Me.)
on the ground that two-thirds of tho
time occupied in tho Cuban discussion
had been occupied by tho members of
the committee on foreign relations or
those who sympathized with their re
port, and that theio were many sena
tors who desired to be heard on tho
other side of tho question.
Tho vote was taken on Mr. Gormon's
motion and it was agreed to. Yeas, 42;
