RECORD OF THE
WORK IN CONGRESS.
Disagreements Between ' the
Two Houses Retarded
PRACTICALLY NOTHING DONE
Appropriation Bills Met With
Opposition One Place or
Washington', March 3.— A review of the
work of this last session of the Fifty-third
Congress must necessarily deal more with
what was attempted to be done than that
which was accomplished, since most of
the important business considered has
been confined to the former class. The term
has been particularly marked by the in
ability of the Seriate and House to agree
upon any of the most important problems
presented by them.
Congress met on the 4th of December
last with one imperative and perennial
task, to frame and enact the various appro
priation bills. Next in importance was the
financial question, for which "no definite
plan of settlement beyond many free-silver
bills and various individual schemes were
then in view.
Several important bills came over as a
heritage from the preceding session.
Foremost among th,em were, in the House,
the Nicaragua canal bill, the railroad pool
ing bill and the bill for the settlement of
the indebtedness of the Union Pacific
railroad, known as the Reilly bill.
The Nicaragua canal project has not
been able to secure a hearing in the House.
Largely through the enthusiastic efforts of
Senator Morgan of Alabama the Senate
bill was pushed to a vote in that body after
protracted debate and was sent to the
House, where the Conference Committee
substituted its own bill, which had been
on the calendar throughout the session and
which differed in several points from the
The pooling bill was passed by the House
early in the session, but the Senate refused
to consider it by a negative vote of 42 to
24 on the question of consideration. Strong
opposition to the Reilly bill has developed
in the House, and after a very sharp debate
it was recommitted to the committee with
Several important bills were placed on
the calendar of the Senate at the begin
ning of the term, handed down from the
long session when they had been passed
by the House. Prominent -among them
was the bill to establish a uniform system
of bankruptcy, which was debated inter
mittently, but finally side-tracked. An
other unsuccessful measure was the anti
There were also on the Senate calendar
the four bills which the House had sent
over to place on the free list — sugar, coal,
iron and barbed wire — the attempt to
secure consideration of the free sugar bill
was negatived by a small majority and the
opposition to the three others was so ap
parent that they have been allowed to pass
The most interesting chapter of the
history of the session is made by the at
tempt at" financial legislation in both
houses. These are too well known to re
quire recapitulation. No financial legisla
tion has yet resulted from the host of bills
introduced during the session, with more
or less weight of authority behind them.
The principal class of legislation accom
plished by the short session was that mak
ing appropriation for the support of the
Government. Not a little general legisla
tion was incorporated into the appropria
tion bills. These bills, in the order in
which they were passed by the House,
For the military academy (West Point),
army pension, fortifications, diplomatic
and consular, District of Columbia, postal,
agricultural, Indian, sundry civil, legisla
tive, executive and judicial, navy and gen
When the last week of Congress began
the House had passed all except the gen
eral deficiency and the Senate had the last
four yet to consider. The pension bill, as
enacted, contained provisions that pen
sions shall not ba paid to non-residents
who are not citizens of the United States,
except for actual disabilities incurred in
the service; directing examining surgeons
to state the ratings to which they say the
applicants are entitled and fixing the
lowest rate of pension at $6 a month.
The diplomatic and consular bill in
creased^ the salaries of several foreign rep
resentatives and the Senate placed in it an
amendment authorizing the President to
contract for laying a cable between the
Hawaiian Islands and the United States,
and to use $.500,000 in the work, an amend
ment which' the House refused to accept.
The agricultural bill empowered the
Secretary of Agriculture to enforce rules
for the inspection of live cattle whose meat
is intended for shipment abroad in any
form, and regulations to prevent the ship
ment of condemned carcasses abroad or
from one State to another, and fixed heavy
penalties for violation of such regulations.
Considerable legislation was included in
the sundry civil bill, and much more was
attempted in the Senate by proposed
amendments. The completion of several
public buildings was provided for "in the
bill as it passed the House, and sums were
added in the Senate for new buildings*
Another Senate amendment provided for
the purchase for $150,000 of the site of the
Blame mansion. Provision was also in-.,
eluded for the transfer of the military
prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kans., to the
Department of Justice, to be known as the
United States penitentiary and maintained
for keeping United States prisoners. who
have heresofore been held in State prisons
The naval bill was notable because of the
"new navy" provision for two battle-ships
and six torpedo-boats and an increase of
the enlisted force by the addition of 1000
The general deficiency bill reported to
the House, amounted to $6,159,539. An
amendment, requested by the Secretary of
the State to pay the claims of Great Britain
for 125,000 damages for seizures in Bering
Sea. was voted down by the House. 777.:
The most conspicuous personal legisla
tion passed was the revival of the grade of
lieutenant-general of the army that Major-
General Schofield . might be promoted to
the rank, while the act of the greatest im
portance to the Government 'departments
and Congress was the printing bill, which
practically places the control of all Gov
ernment printing in the hands of. a joint
committee of three members from each of
the two houses.
Laws affecting shipping were passed—
to establish rules to prevent collisions on
(be great lakes and tributary .waters; : an
jtherof the same effect applying to har
bors, rivers and inland waters, supple
mentary to the act of August 19, IS9O, for
preventing collisions at sea. The time for
making the" report of the board of en
gineers surveying canal routes from Lake
Erie to the Ohio River was extended to the
next session of Congress. Numerous bridge
bills were enacted.
The commercial travelers' organization
secured an amendment to the interstate
commerce law permitting the issuance of
joint interchangeable 5000-mile tickets,
good over more than one road.
The House adopted a joint resolution
for an amendment to the constitution pro
viding for the election of United States
Senators by a direct vote of the people of
the States, but the resolution was reported
adversely by the Senate Committee on
Privileges and Elections.
Among important House bills which
died was one for the reorganization of the
line of the army, and one to punish train
wreckers by capital punishment and at
temps at train-wrecking by heavy terms of
Dramatic authors of the United States

[ Washi>*gto_-, March 3. — The provision
inserted by the Senate in the sundry civil
bill for three of its members to be sent, to
the prospective international monetary
conference has been the cause of consider
able rivalry among the factions on both
the Democratic and Republican side of the
Chamber as to representation on the com
From the time the amendment was
voted on by the Senate the silver men, be
lieving themselves to be in the majority in
the Senate, have assumed that they would
be allowed to*name all three of the Demo
crats on the part of the Senate, and this
was apparently at first conceded to them
by the anti-silver men.
Consequently when a petition was circu
lated last night asking Senator Jones of
Arkansas, Daniel of Virginia, Democrats,
and Teller of Colorado, Republican, all
free coinage advocates, to allow the use of
their names for the positions of delegates,
there .was comparatively little objection
The paper was generally signed by the
silver men and by several Senators who
are not included in that classification.
Some of the anti-silver men declined, how
ever, to attach their names, and it was
not long until a murmur arose against the
programme to elect none but silver men
from the Senate. This soon grew into an
animated protest on the part of the silver
There were, .of course, conferences be
tween the contending interests, when the
anti-silverites confessed that it was their
purpose to secure representation on the
Senatorial delegation or throw the selec
tion of the entire commission into the
hands of the President.
The executive session of the Senate re
sulted in the selection of Teller, Jones and
In the House it was generally under
stood that two of the delegates to be
named would be selected from the Demo
cratic side and one from the Republican.
The Populist . contingent had already in
formed the Speaker that it was opposed to
the plan and did not care to be represented
at such a conference.
Two petitions were started on the Re
publican side, one for Hitt of Illinois,
the other for Hepburn of lowa. The j
Hitt petition was circulated by W. A. |
Stone of Pennsylvania. The Hepburn peti- !
tition was in charge of Hartman of
Montana, and was signed by nearly all the
Republicans. Hepburn is pronounced
friendly to silver, but one who is said to
believe in international bimetallism rather
than free coinage by this Government in

The Secretary enclosed a statement and
says it will be observed there have been
13.5 removals and 135 appointments and re

present time. Mr. Carlisle adds:
I do not recognize the right of the House of
Representatives to require the Secretary of the
Treasury to state the reasons for making re
movals, appointments or reinstatements, but
deem it proper, nevertheless, to say that all
the changes shown were made for the purpose
of promoting the efficiency of the public ser
vice, and that iii making removals no discrim

in making appointments and reinstatements
preference has been given to that class of ap

THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, MONDAY, MARCH 4, 1895.
BOTH THE HOUSES.
The Death of Congress Watched
by Thousands of Wash
MEMBERS WERE JOSTLED.
The Representatives Finally
Disposed of the Sundry
Washington, March 3. — The unusual at
traction of a Sunday session of Congress at
the time of a pleasant setting in of mild,
spring-like weather, furnished to Washing
ton a holiday in the modern acceptation of
the word. Throughout the afternoon the
approaches to the Capitol were filled with
carriages, and the sundry procession
turned its steps from Connecticut avenue
into the swell northwest to the other end
of town. The broad steps of the Capitol
had somewhat the appearance of inaugura
tion day, the great plaza to the east was
dotted with strolling groups, lines of car
riages were drawn up stretching clear
across the streets, waiting for the business
they would have done had they been
favored with rain or slush.
Within the building the jam was so
great it interfered with business. The
doorkeepers in the galleries were kept
fighting to restrain the people for whom
there was not room, the elevators were
loaded to the limit of their capacity every
trip, two streams of people elbowed their
way from the House to the Senate and
from the Senate to the House, while pages
plowed their way through the jam.
The comparatively small attachments
which could be accommodated in the gal
leries of both the houses kept up a babble
of chatter which, combined with the rush
ing back and forth and clamoring of mem
bers like a busy day in the pit of a stocic
exchange, almost overwhelmed the routine
proceedings and kept the Speaker's gavel
The House was the theater of the popu
lace which preferred a lively scene, while
in the Senate the spectators were more or
derly and fewer, though more of the nota
bles were to be seen in the reserved galler
ies, particularly in the diplomatic seats,
where the sky-blue robes of the Chinese
Minister were the center of interest.
After nightfall and until the streetcars
stopped running at midnight the crowds
pushed in and out, hung about the rotunda
looking at the historic paintings when
they could not secure admission to the gal
leries, and not a few spectators were hold
ing their seats into the early hours of Mon
After the sharp fight of last night over
the Senate provision in the sundry civil
bill appropriating $5,000,000 for the pay
ment of sugar bounties earned up to June
30, 1895, which resulted in the adoption "of
an amendment shortly after midnight, the
session dragged wearily through the silent
watches of the night until the sundry
civil and Indian appropriation bills had
been sent back to conference. As the gray
dawn was breaking the House took a re
cess until 2 o'clock this afternoon, and the
wornout members hurried home to catch
a few hours' rest and nerve themselves for
the siege which promises to last until to
When the Speaker again took the chair
at 2 o'clock more than half the member
were in their seats. No conference reports
were ready when the House reconvened,
and the Speaker graciously recognized sev
eral of the half hundred members clamor
ing for an opportunity to secure considera
tion of measures of local or personal inter
est to them.
Holman called up the second conference
report on the Indian appropriation bill,
which showed the Senate had abandoned
one item, i. c., to appropriate $48,500 for
the Miami Indians of Indiana, thus leav
ing two Senate amendments still in dis
pute, one to purchase for $300 from the
Ogden Land Company the title to the
lands within the Cattaragus and Allegheny
Indian reservations in New York, and the
other striking out the House provision to
continue the reduction of appropriation
for contract Indian schools proportionately
so all such payments should cease after five
After some debate the House decided to
further hold to its disagreement to both
amendments in dispute, and the bill was
again sent to conference. Then at 6:10
p. M. a recess was taken until 7:30 p. m.
There were but few members present
when the House met after recess at 7:30.
The bill to prohibit the sale of intoxicants
to Indians, which had been objected to
when brought up before, was called up. by
Meiklejohn and passed.
At 8 o'clock the conference report on the
sundry civil bill was called up by Sayers.
When the proposition for an international
monetary conference (to which the House
conferees had acceded) was reached, the
silver men demanded time. Sibley called
attention to the satisfaction with which
the proposition for a monetary conference
had been received by the monometallic
press of . the East, on the ground that it
might lead to some adjustment by which
the silver men could obtain a larger legiti
mate use of silver.
The friends of silver, Sibley declared,
had held the doctrine that a wider use of
silver was necessary, because they saw the
curses that had followed the falling of
prices the world over. What the United
States should do is to act, not consult, and
he expressed the opinion that a monetary
conference would simply postpone the day
when silver cou Id o to the mints for free
coinage on the same terms as gold.
Simpson said the proposition for a confer
ence was the same old game, twice played
on the people, of holding out a promise that
would never be realized. It would post
pone free coinage at least six years, and six
more years of gold standard would so com
plete the financial bondage of the country
as to make it forever impossible to break
the power of the gold kings. He was op
posed to again entering on the farce of a
Pence, in a ringing speech, argued that
no good could come from a monetary com
mission. "Possibly," he said, "good might
result if the Speaker should name as mem
bers of the committee from the House
three Presidential candidates, thus smok
ing them out on the silver question, and I
trust, if the Speaker is called upon to make
selections, he will not overlook the distin
guished Republican leader, Reed.'.'*
With some biting sarcasm he detailed
the address of the silver Democrats issued
last Friday. He commended the bold,
courageous and manly action of those who
had signed the address, but rebuked some
of them for already looking with favor on
a proposition to go abroad for further con
sultation. , „"
Springer called Pence's attention to the
fact that the proposition for a conference
had emanated from the silver men in the
Senate, not from the gold men.
Hepburn (R.) of lowa favored the prop
osition for a conference. At a time when
the great gold countries of the world were
showing the first symptoms of a favorable
sentiment toward silver he expressed his
surprise that avowed friends of silver like
Pence and Simpson should oppose proposi
tions for a monetary conference.
By neat parlimentary maneuvers Can
non got the floor at this point and yielded
his time to Sayers, who immediately cut
off debate by demanding the previous
question. The conference report was
adopted, and the sundry civil bill was out
of the way so far as the House was con
cerned. "Several bills were then hurried
through by unanimous consent.
Among them was the Senate resolution,
calling on the President to insist upon
Spain carrying out her agreement with the
United States relative to the claim of An
tonio Maxim Mora, amounting to $1,

At 10 p. m. Hilman presented the final
report on the Indian appropriation bill.

GOOD-BY TO GAIETY GIRLS.
They Have Played Their Last
in San Francisco and
Young England Prattles of Our
Ladies, Fog-Bells, Jinks
As the big red curtain came silently
down on the last act of "The Gaiety Girl"
at the Baldwin last night, and the Tommy
Atkinses and high kickers were shut out
from view in San Francisco forever more,
a little man in a blue coat adorned with
brass buttons and a slouch hat resting on
the back of his head, sauntered on the
stage and took a position up the center.
From the halo of importance which sur
rounded his being and the style of his
opening remarks, it was evident to the
commonest outsider that he was a cus
toms inspector, but to the "Gaiety Girl"
he was a new thing. He was there to in
spect the "Gaiety" wardrobes preparatory
to their being shipped to the steamers
which will carry the troupe to the Anti
podes, and he started in on his work with
the assurance of a veteran in the art.
The Tommy Atkinses and high-kickers
and Marcus Mayer, who can be seen in a
different suit of clothes every night with
out extra price, stood around and watched
him, and wondered how he could go
through so many trunks in such order. It
was an undertaking new to the Britisher.
"What do you find most interesting in
San Francisco?" said the wardrobe ferret
to Harry Monkhonse, as he stirred up a
box of hats which had cost the comedian
two-pun-ten in Piccadilly.
"Why, the ladies, of course," replied the
six-footed mummer, "the ladies, of
course. Never in me life 'aye I seen
so many pretty women in one day
as I have seen in San ■Francisco. I've
been on the cable-trains, seen the bloomin'*
seals and drank the bleedin' wine, but
nothing could take me away from the
ladies. They are like roses in the summer,
and it seems to be summer all the time
j here. I'm going away, but I'm coming !
I back some day just to get a glimpse of ]
i Kearny street on an afternoon. Say, just
look out for me evening suit, old chap.
There's nothing in it."
And the comedian went to rescue his
nobby clothes, which had been strewn on
the stage floor in the ferret's mad pursuit
for opium or some other outlandish thing
which a gaiety actor would not think of
smuggling even to Red Shirt Canyon.
"Oh, I like the ferry-boats best," broke
in little Miss Decima Moore. "I think
they're just jolly. And that little island
that you pass, with the big fogbcll! I'd
like to ride back and forth in them when
its foggy and hear the big bell ring. It re
minds me so much of dear old Lunnon,
where we have such nice fogs, you know.
"If Australia is anything like this place
it will be awfully jolly"— and she ran off to
recover her black and tan slippers which
the inspector had ruthlessly dropped into
Mr. Bantock's "glastun."
"Give me the clubs." said Fred Hays, the
blustering major. "They are the jolliest
things out here. Those tides— no jinks you
call them— high and low— are worth all the
trouble it took to get here. I don't see
when the chaps here get time to sleep— but
the clubs and the jinks, I'll never forget
them." :, '77*'
Then W. Louis Bradfield, who warbles
about the naughty cafes chantants in Paris,
wrestled with the inspector to keep his
pea-green tights intact, and said that he
thought San Francisco was remarkable
for saloons more than anything else.
"They glitter like palaces," remarked
the young man, "ana they keep mineral
water on tap and give you strawberries
and cherries in your toddy, and keep you
posted on the races, and give you lunch
eons that save you from standing the din
ner. Then they're full of *f tinny little
nick_e-in-th?-slot affairs where you can
get a dozen brandies for a bob." '
"Ah! the flowers. The roses, the vio
lets, the lillies, and the posies," said
Maud Hobson. "I could live in San Fran
cisco forever just to be with the flowers.
Its the greatest city in the world for
flowers, and in March, too. Think of
And just as the inspector was getting
down to his last batch of boxes and "Glad
stones," Mr. Cecil Hope appeared and
made many handshakes with some of his
"Isn't this a great place for weather?"
he said. "I'm sorry we're going to leave
it. I've never been away from 'ome before
and never saw anything but snow and blus
terin' breezes at this time of the year.
This weather is wonderful. It's marvel
"And I like the way the ladies dress,"
added Miss Madge Kossell, the nimble
dancer, whose life has been spent in the
provinces of England. "They take the
prize in San Francisco for dressing. Such
taste and style and originality I've never
seen. And I know they're clever because
they like my dahance.
"But give me the canvas-back duck,"
said Florence Lloyd. "I will say that this
is the greatest place in the world for can
vas-back duck and violets, too; yes, vio
"Hit's the bloomin' trolly, trams that
take me heye out ere," was the favorite
remark of Arthur Hope. .'.-The trolly trams
that go by electricity. I tell ye they take
me heye." •
Mr. Bantock was just about to assure the
company that San Francisco could boast
of its theaters in preference to anything
else and Miss Massy was trying to say
something in favor of the dudes when the
inspector stirred . up the contents of the
last trunk and the stage hands began to
dim the lights.
There were" a few hurried "good-bys,"
some remarks about the "bold ways of
bloomin' custom 'ouse holficers," a kiss
here and there and the butterfly 'gaiety
girls and. their gallant male mummers
said a sad "farewell" to the Baldwin stage
to dream over the ' features of a trip to

BREAKING A TRIP BEOORD.
The Disabled Steamer Coos Bay to Go
oh the Drydock.
The ship Elwell (Captain Ryder), which
left this port for the north is making a
record-breaking run. She sailed February
19 and is reported by telegraph yesterday
to have left Nanaimo on her return to
San Francisco. The usual time between
the two places going and coming is thirty
to thirty-five days, but that was lowered by
the ship America to twenty days. If gooa
luck continues to drive the Elwell ahead
she will further diminish the time.
It is not yet accurately known how
seriously the steamer Coos Bay, which
broke down Saturday off Pigeon Point, ia
damaged. Whether the shaft is broken or
the propeller is lying in the bottom of tho
ocean will be learned when the vessel goes
on the drydock.
Struck the Conductor.
G. XV. Costley, a barber, was booked at the
City Prison last night on the charge of battery.
He was on Castro-street cable-car No. 110, and
at Ninth and Market streets the conductor
asked him for his fare. George refused to pay,
and lien the conductor stopped the car to put
aim off George smote the conductor a violent
blow In the face. Policemen Galloway and Ham
ilton took him in charge and locked him up in
the City Prison.
The Gazette dcs Beaux Arts of Paris
throws very serious doubt over the ques
tion of whether the world has a genuine
portrait of Napoleon. ■>
