brutality of yestetday must bo there. The

Prom Mr. Hi-ck's explanation , Mr. llalo-altl.
It would .seem that the postmaster general
had .sent the mail by an KimlNi Moauicr
while knowing that they would have to He
oxer at 1'ernnmbuco , a long way this bide ol

await the coming of a United States steamer

lllusttatlon of the nrcfeicnco of thu postmas
ter general tor loielgn ships since ho had
gcnt'tho mails pail way by loielgn ships.
Mr. Plumb said that no senator had shown
that the sum per mite provided for by tlio
amendment was too much. Mr. I'liinib
ciiticlsed the comseof the scnatois who
