and 0,000 to pay for labor on tbo Frank

When tlio clnuso rohting to plate
printers was reached, In consideration of
the Sundry Civil bill, Mr. Lano of Illinois
spoke against tbo Uem to pay only ono
cunt per thousand impressions for tbo
use of (.team plato-prlntiug machines. Ho
made tlio point that It was nut of order
in that it changed existing laws.
Sir. Itandall roplicd that there was no
law In tbo matter that tbo presses wero
1 used through contract lasting only a
year. Mr. Land then dosircd to know if
tbo adoption of tlio item would not have
Iho effect of doing away with thu use of
steam presses altogether.
Upon Mr. Randall replying' that bo
thought It would, Mr. Lano proceoded to
review tbo history of tbo payment of
rovalty for steam presses.
Ho said tbo act of 1886 by which tlio
Secretary of Treasury was authorised to
enter into a contract for the purchasn
nnd operation of theso machines and
that was thus done upon np agreement of
payment of a royalty of $1 for every
thousand impressions.
Ho also argued against tlio item on the
ground of economy, holdlng-that It would
necessitate tbo expenditure of much
morn monoy to do the vfprk bv band.
Ho also moved to strike out tbo pro
vision In regard to tlio payment of ono
cent per thousand impressions.
Ho understood that tbo plate printers
wero making war against tjio steam
presses. Was It wiso,"ho said, to accede
to this demand when it was shown 'tjiat
tbo presses could do tlio wdrk as well as
and when not to uso thorn would mako
it necessary to employ a largo extra forco
nnd pay out annually $102,000 additional,
,to that already paid out.

Tho District has purchnsed only ono
school situ since thoy abandoned 'tholr
method of qocuring them through an
agent, and they lost $1,100 on this one.
This tdtu is situated on Montgomery
street, Georgetown. The District had a
small lot there, nnd to make It largo
enough for an eight-room building It be
came necessary to buy two small
pieces of ground, ono on Mongom
ery street and another in thu cuntro
of tho square. Mr. Cox lind negotiated
for these, ana put up a forfeit to bind
tho bargain. He was to get them for
M.C00 and $1,000 respectively. When
so much talk was raised about the Com
missioners buying through nn agent ho
allowed the, agreement to bo declined off.
When thu Commissioners nttempted to
renew tlio bargain $000 was added to tho
price of tho Montgomery street lot nnd
$v00 to tho other, Which tho Commis
sioners wero compelled to pay.

An Interesting Itcrltnt lleforo tlio Senate
Committeo on Forolfen Itelatlonn-Ac-tlon
Taken by tlio Committee-Our lu
tnrcHts to bo Protected.
Tho Senate Committeo on Foreign
Relations held a mooting this morning
when tho Sanioan question was taken
up and discussed at length with a vlow
to making an immediate report to the
Scnuto. Printed copies of testimony of
Consul Geneial Sowall wero placed In
tbo hands of tho members of tho full
committeo in preparation for the con
sldcrutlon of tho mnitor. Mr. Sownll
In his testimony criticises severely tho
conduct of tho Slnlo Department on tho
Sanioan question. The result of the
nicutlng will probably be the roport to
tho bunnto of a resolution condemnatory
of tho attitude and nou-actlon of thu
State Department.
In his examination, Mr. Sowall testified
nt length to the situation of tho Islands
nnd their commercial value. Of tho
character of tho ui(tlves, ho said that
they wero a peaceable, law-abiding peo
plo and all Christians, and ho boro testi
mony to the uxccllent,work of tho mis
sionnrles on the island. Hu said, further,
that tho natives of tbo island wero vcrv
favorably impressed ylth tho attitude o'f
tho United States toward their country
whon tho existing treaty was negotiated,
and ho expressed regret that tho treaty
should over havo beeii negotiated, since,
ns lin said, the attitude of tho United
States toward them had not been main
tained, and thoy had boon mado to suffer'
for it.
Mr. Sowall quoted extensively from
correspondence between him nnd tho
Stnto Department froih tho tlmo of his
arrival, showlngthat tho British Consul
had been acting with' tho Germans for
tlnee years, and.lic expressed tho opin
ion frooly that therd was an arrange
ment between tho two governments, by
which Great Ilritain was to keep her
bands off in this tight! His understand
ing, ho said, had always been that tho
German Government, under this arrange
ment, was to tnko possession of Samoa,
tho British Government of tho Tonga
Islands, nnd, that eventually, Great
Britain was to como luto possession of
Hawaii. He said ho believed that. If
these operations were not checked, thoy
would soon extend to Hawaii, which is
to bo tlio northern restiug-plnco of tho
cablo betweon Vancouver nnd Now
TnE rr.oT'iEErr.Ns.
When ho arrived Id Samoa, Mr. Sow
all said, ho found the' rebellion encour
aged by tho GormanS(,whllo tho Samoans
had boen assured by Iho representatives
of tho United States' that they would bo
protected by this Governmont, and thev
had tomalned nuletin tho belief that this
protection would bo afforded thorn. On
the day after his arrival, Mr. Sowall said,
he received a-.dlspatch from the Sutb
Depactmiiht Jnrpctibg him to ndviso'
the-natives-motto resort to forco, as tlib
trraty'powers woio endeavoring to obtain
a natlvo'governmont (or Samoa.
Whon this dispatcln was shown to tho
Samoans thoy dcemod much impressed.
King Maliotoa, Mr. Sownll said, was
ready to put down tlio insurrection, but
Mr. Sownll sought to Impress upon him
the significance of 'the fact that tbo
United States gavo assuranco that tlm
long-promised conforeneo was taking
placo or would take placo.
Mr. Sowal also told him of tho assur
ances that. Jlr. Bayard had given him
orally boforo his departure Theso oral
instructions consisted in an expression of
disapproval that ho (Sowall) should havo
6aid that ho npprocd tho action of Con
sul Groenbaum in raising tho Unitod
States' ting in Samoa nnd an assuranco
that he (bewail) might contradict In any
way ho chose tho rbport that German
action, to toko control would meet with
thu acquiescence of thu Secretary of
State and tho Governmont of tho United
States. It was with tho understanding
that tho United States claimed a 1oint
right in tho settlement of Satnoan affairs
and that nothing would bo done that
would bo lasting without the kuowledgo
aiui consent oi mis. uovorninent mat
Malletoa refrained from nutting down
tho insurrection.
Mr. Sownll said' that his action in thus
dissuading Maliotoa was of tho greatest
possiulo assistance to tho Germans. When
tho tiino came ho wrts unablo to fulfill
his promise given In tho name of his
Government. Ono month after his
promise was made, a demand was mado
on Mftlictoa by tho Germans for S1!),000,
and beforo tbo Klbg could consult liis
chiefs the German forces had taken nos
susslou and Installed in power Tama'soso
and Brnudeis, tho men whosu lives had
been saved by tho .intercession of tho
Government of tho United States. Mr.
Sc wall said ho belie vdd this plan of action
was conceived more than three vcars bo
fore, und bait for its ultimate oliject tho
installation of Germany in possession of
thu island,

Malletoa retired to tho hills after tho
installment of Tamaseso, and for threo
weeks he continued to send to tbn Knrr.
lish nnd American consulates to ask
aootu uiu couiurunco, which .ur. euwaii
had assured him was In progiess. Bo-

jur. buwau stntea inai no nau porsonal
knowledge that tho printing of tho
proclamation Issued by Tamaseso and
countersigned by Brandies wus paid for
by tho Germans.
Mr, Sowall dcscrlUed nt tome length
tbo indignities to which Amorlcnns had
boon subjected. Tii Germans, ho said,
had closed tbo municipal court, nnd tho
jurisdiction lu cases against Gormans wus
with, tio Qerman Consul only. Thu
Aiuoijcans, ho said, had received no
notlco prior to tho declaration of war.
No American, ho said, could speak to a
native now without placing that native
under suspicion.
Mr, Sownll's attention was called to the
correspondence recently sent totho Senate
bv tbo President. Ilo said that boforo
his dopartttro ho bad endeavored to keop
the natives quiet, but it was .evident
when ho left that some such outbreak as
was related in theso dispatches would
occur. ' "
Ho read a private letter fr6in Mr.
Mooio, tho leading American' trader,
whoso lands havo been seized by tho
German finding film at Appla, who
wrote to Mr. Sowall that Brandeis, tho
Gorman Consul, wns said to bo keeping a
black-book, that ho spent his limo devis
ing now modes of punishment,, and that
tho island would become a great slaugh
ter pen If tho Gormans over canio into
full control of tho island. t
Mr. Sownll supplemented this letter
wi ha description of the pltlabln condi
tion of tho American citizens Jn Samoa,
many of whom had mnriied -natives and
wero oven now, ns hu oxpicssui It, at tho
mercy of a German adveuturer,
ITED. When asked what effect thc'rcccnt ac
tion ot the Government In sending
another war vessel to Samoa woifld have
on tho Germans, Mr. Sowall icplled that
tlitj instructions of tills Government to
Admiral Klmberly wore tho ordinary In
structions; that the Germans know tho
limited authority thoy gnvo and that
under these instructions tlio rcpicscnta
tlves of tho United Stales cannot reach
tbo real catiso of the trouble at all.
The testimony ot Mr. Sowall was taken
ly a subcommittee consisting of' Senator
I; rye (chairman), Senator Dolph and
Senator Morgan. Tho investigation was
Instigated by Senator Frvo who intro
duced thu resolution under which tho
committee is noting,

Tho empl6ycs of tho Bureau of En
graving and Printing aro In anytnlng but
a pleasant, state of mind caused by tho
action of Chief Graves, in opposing tho

In sccuring'thc passage of thcjblll which
is opposed by Mr. Graves. Judge
Perkins of Kansas, ono, of tbo blir four,
said ho knew no logical reason wily tho
bureau employes should noticnjoy tho
samo privileges as granted the employes
of other Departments.
"The people in tho bureau' said ho,
"wore tbo hardest worked and poorest
paid of any of thu Government servants,
and certainly no ono ought,to. oppose
them having thirty days' luav. It was
not supposed that all tho employes wero
to take their lcavo nt tho same tiino.
Tho thirty days is practicable In tho
Department, and why not in the bu
reau? I want thoso cinplpyos to havo
the thirty dnvs. They arc 'entitled to it
and tho fact that the House passed tho
bill is sufficient that Congress desired
justice to bo done,"
Mr. Richardson of Tonnesseo, who so
cured tho passage ot the bill, said to the
reporter that it was absurd and idiotic to
argue that it was impracticable to give
tho employes of tho Bureau thlrtv days
leave. Avhen tho Housu passed the bill
any sane person would have, known nt
onco that an increased appropriation was
necessary to carry out tlio provisions of
the bill. And Congress doesn't maku
laws without providing an nppropriotion
to put them into operatlen, I seo no
reason why tbo employes shouldn't havo
tho thirty days, and I am coniUlent that
they will have it.

Then sho Introduced Mrs. Virginia
Minor, who lead a letter written by her
husband, Francis Gage.
Mrs. Minor It was who appealed her
case Involving her light to vote from
court to court until tho Supieinu Court or
the United Slates linully decided it
against her.
Mr. Minor's letter was a strong ono
and lu It ho told tho women that thoir
eaiiso was just and that thoy must light
for their rights. Their motto, ho said,
should bo "In hoe slyno tincen."
After she finished reading her hus
band's letter she said a few wouls in tho
same -vein herself. Miss Anthony ills
cussed tbo Fouttcuuth Amendment a
fow minutes then.
A few days ago In tho ronort of tho
dinner of the Six o'Clock Clnbalocal
paper said that "Miss Anthony, with her
Inevitable led sbuwl over her shoulders,"
was present. Miss anthoiiy's iod shawl
Is not inevitable. This morning Miss
Anthony wore a bliick-anil while striped
shawl. Sbo never has worn any other
than a led shawl bofore, but the news
paper paragraph seems to havo worked
this loforin.
Miss Anthony detailed in nn energetic
way tho history of tho vailnus assaults
that havo been madu on the citadel of
their dlscnfranchiscinont, the Unllcd
States Supreme Court, and criticised tho
Supreme Court's decisions very severely.
Mrs. Elizabeth Archer Connor of this
city wns then introduced. Mrs. Connor
is a strong-featuicd.whlte-hnlrcd woman,
In whoso innimer tli'ero is an unusual
buslness-llko biusquentss. Sho has madu
her name well known In journalistic
circles.havlng contributed totho columns
of somo of the most inlluonflnl jburnals
of tho country. Tho subject of her talk
was "Thu Coming Sox," and she told of
a class of progressive women sbo had or
ganized and how she bad taught them
political history and other things that
would lit them to vote Intelligently. Sho
said that meu ignored women." "It is
this wrong order of things that lias
brought us hero to protest again this
ono-leggcd administration of our Gov
ernment." Mrs. Mary B. Clay followed Mis. Con
nor nnd read a paper entitled "Is the
American Woman a Civil and Polltlcnl
Mrs. Clay pointed out many things
that much rcsemblo slavery in tho mar
riago laws. "If a wifo refuses ,to obey
her husbamlho can lock her up and do
mivohorof lie&clothing. He can bsat
nor with a stick no larger than his linger,
provided hoy docs no maim her. A
woman was publicly whipped In Virginia
for btoaling licr Clbthos from her husband.
A woman can bo prosecuted for taking
hor clothes from her husband, even her
bridnl robes.
"Let marrlago no longer bo tho bond
age of slaves, but' tho union of equals.
Husbands do not support tholr wives.
Tho poor man's wifo works as hard as ho
does. Tho rich man's wifo who outer
talus bis friends, leans his children and
nurses them, earns her living as much as
hor husbauil does,"'
"Tho object of voting is to disseminate
tho principles of virtuo and morality
through the laws of tho land. Havo
men more virtuo and morality than wo
men? Threo'fourthsof tho church mem
bors In tho United States are wotneu. Is
suffrage based on tbo ability to bear
arms? No, for doctors, ministers, crip
ples, deaf people nnd tho blind aro ex
empted from military soivice, but they
aro allowed to vote.
"Thu right to voto should lest not on
physical, but on moral qualillcations.
Away with this sickly sentimentality
that saj's that women would bo degraded
by taking part in politics,
"Women's piesonco makes men moro
human und less brutal wherever her In
lluenco is felt. In thu couits, wheru tho
youngest of her sex can bo arraigned for
infanticide, a woman is not allowed to
plead her causo. Wifehood and mother
hood aro hut inferior states in tho trim
woman's life. Her grcnt dcslro should
bo citizenship."
.Mrs. Clay was followed by ltev.
Olympia Brown Willis.
Miss Anthony announced that Judge
Carey, who wus,ou thu programme to ad
dress the convention, was unablo to bo
piesent on aceount of a committeo meet

by her maideij name, Olympia Brown,
but sbo is married, nnd has two pretty
children in her Wisconsin homo with
her husband, Andrew Willis.
Mrst Willis told Intorcstingly of tho
fight that tho Wisconsin women mado
and which resulted in women being
given tho right to votu in school elec
tions. They wanted to bo allowed to
voto In nil elections, but thoy wero not
allowed to and had to content themselves
with voting for school tiuslees.
Tbo tight was hotly contested and
ended by tho couits deciding Hint
"women had a right to voto at certain
elections, but that theiu wero no such
elections held."
Mrs. Abigail Scott Dimiway then
told how tho women bad eeetued tho
right to voto In Washington Territoiy.
Sho said that thu politicians hud said
that Senator Dolph advocacy of tho
women's cause would prevent ills re-elec
tlou to the Soiinto. "But," Mrs. Dunl
