Bankrupt Bepeal Bill Amended hy the

and ReferredSenator Beck Makes a
Forcible r_-ument for Tariff Reform

Public DebtMiscellaneous.
WASHINGTON, May 1.Senator Blaine called
up tho resolution submitted by him a few days
ago, declaring that any change in our tariff at
this time would be inopportune. He did so,
ho said, for the purpose of having a vote there
Senator Davis, 111., presented a petition of
citizens of Chxcago favoring the passage of a
law giving permission to all people and com
panies without preference, to land telegraph
cables on the shoies of the United States. Re
Senator Beck objected and said he proposed
to discuss the resolution fully if he could.
Senator Wallace gave notice he would sub
mit a substitute- for tho resolution declaring
that legislation upon the subject of the tariff
it the present session of Congress inopportune
and inexpedient.
Senator Beck said, all the troubles now ex
isting in the country giew out of the fact that
we had built a wall around ourselves, and con
fined our trade to ourselves. Under our pres
ent tariff sjstem it was impossible for ns to
compete with any other nation for the trade of
any other peoplo. Until the system should be
changed, thero would be no prospeiity in this
country, no matter what might be done about
gold, greenbacks or anything else. The coun
try was growing poorer and poorer every day, on
account of thin tariff. He read the resolutions
o the St. Loim Democratic convention in
legaid to the tariff.
Senator Wallace asked if the same party at
its previous national convention did not remit
the same subject to the Congressional dis
Benatoi SargentDid not the convention le
mit it to the Congressional districts because it
nominated the chief of protectionists, Horace
Greeley? (Laughter.)
Senatoi Beck continuing his lemarks, de
nounced tho present tariff, and said the other
day a giei parade was made when the steam
ship City of Paui was launched. The Presi
dent and cabinet went to the launch. Repre
sentatives and Senators were i.d attendance,
jdr. Roac may have built that ship as cheap
as it could be built in England, but
an English vessel laden with Rimilar
goods, might sail side by side with the City of
Para, to the South Amencan port of Valpaiaiso,
for instance. Upon arriving theie the Lnglish
nrin would sell his goods and take those of the
people ot Valparaiso in exchange. He would
land them fiee in England, where they would
be manulactured. Roach could not sell his
goods b( xuse th" people had no money, and
ho could not take their goods in exchange,
because it would cost him fiom forty to sixty
per cent, in gold to land them at any of our
port3. We might build ships and send them
out with cargoes, but they could not bung
cargoes home on account of our protective
tariff. 1 lie time was coming when men on this
floor, and in the other end of the capitol, must
ceaso to legislate to piotect monopolists, or
other would be sent in their places. He
leterred to the works of R. J. Walker and
other itings on this subject, and said he pio
nosed hc.eatter to refer to them more at
Before concluding his remark*, he yielded to
Benatoi Blaine, ho leplied to his argument,
and haul lie thought it oue of the anomalies of
American politic that the seat of Hcniy Clay
in the Senate should be the place from which a
free trade argument was made. Mr. Blaine
argned that it was the sentiment expressed by
the Senator from Kentucky, Mr. Beck, in his
remaik-, which held back the advancement of
the SoutLcrn country to-day. The Senator had
reforred to the tauft of R. J. Walker. Did
ho nor know it led to bankruptcy and
ruin, lie, Mr. Blame, was glid to see
developed a little collision among his friends
on tne other side on this subject. Referring to
the argument of Senator Beck, that our ships
could nj get return cargoes, he said the Sena
tor was mistaken. It was well known we took
a great ileal more from South America than we
sent thec.
Senatoi Garland introduced a bill provid
ing foi a commission to examine into the
subject of the taiiff, with a view to facilitating
legislation in relation thereto. Referred.
A debate followed as to when the resolution
of Senator Blime should be considered. Pend
ing discmsion the morning hour expired, and
the subject was laid aside Consideration was
then lesumccl oi the bill to repeal the bank
rupt law.
The motion of Senator Edmunds, submitted
yesterday, to refer the bill and the House
amendments the eto to a special committee of
three Senatoi s, of which Senator Christiancy
bhould lie chairman, was rejected.
Senator Matthews moved to amend, so that
the act hhall not take effect until the 1st of
Januaiy, 1879.
The ii'-st amendment of the house men
tioning the date of the acts to be repealed, and
designating their number on the revised
statutes, was agiecd to without discussion.
Tho next amendment of the House provided
that repeal of the law should not affect penal
actions on cuminal proceedings arising under
it prior to appeal.
Senator Christiancy moved a further amend
ment to this amendment, so as to provide that
repeal should not affect the rights of proceed
ings giovvmg out of, or dependent on, the
bankrupt law, including all rights of debtors
and creditors, and all rights of and amounts by
and againbt assignees, under any or all of said
acts in any case heretofore or now pending.
Senator Matthews moved further amend
ments so as to provide that the repeal of the
law should not take effect until January, 1879.
Quite along discussion followed as to wheth
er the original text of the bill could be
Senator McMillan moved to lefer the bill to
the judiciary committee. Rejected, yeas 22,
nays 81.
The question then recuried on the amend
ment oi Senator Matthews, to have the repeal
take eftcct January 1, 1879.
In the course of the debate which followed
Senatoi Thurman favored the amendment of
his colleague, and said had he been in the
Senate v,hen the bill first passed, he would
have submitted an amendment fixing the date
of repeal at some future time. He didn't
think the country expected immediate repeal
of tho bankrupt law.
The amendment of Senator Matthews, fixing
the day of repeal for January 1st, 1870, was
agreed toyeas 25, nays 22, as follows:
Ferry, Grover, Hamlin,
Hoar, Howe,
Anthony. Bayard, Maine.
Camtroii, Pa., Lamar,
Davis, 111. McMillan,

Senators Chaffee, Spencer, Dorsey, Ingalls,
Dawes, and Pacterson, who would have voted
the affirmative, were paired with Senators
O^lcsby, Cameron, Wis., Garland, Withers,
Plumb, and Teller, who would have voted in
the negative.
The queotion then recurred on the amend
ment of Senator Christiancy as amended by
that ot Senator Matthews, and it was agreed to,
rvsS3 yeas-9.
Jvnator Beck referring to the vote by which
the bill to repeal the bankrupt law originally
passed in the Senate, 31 yeas to 6 nays, read
the names, and he was then asked by Senator
Allen to read the names of those Senators who
did not vote, which would show that had they
voted the bill would'not have been passed by
so large a majority.
Senator Beck.Those who did not vote, were
not doing their duty.
This remaik brought a number of Senators to
their feet, who explained why they were
absent when the vote was taken.
Senator Beck, in explanation of his remark,
said he didn't mean to reflect on
any Senator for being absent. But he did
mean to say they were absent, but he now saw
the impropriety of the language, and apolo
gized to Sentatora who felt hurt.
After further discussion. Senator Davis,
111., moved to lefer the bill to the judiciary
committee, that the same clause might be
Senator Edmunds said he felt sure the bill
could be reported back to-morrow, should it be
so referred.
The motion of Senator Davis was then agreed
lo. Yeas, 37 nays, 16.
A number of Senators who had heretofore
voted against reference, voted for it now, after
the statement of Edmunds that the bill would
be reported back to-monow morning.
On motion of Senator Allison, the Senate
took up the bill to repeal the specie resumption
aet, with the understanding it should be unfin
ished business to-morrow.
Senator Conkling inquired whether it was
proposed te press the bill to a vote.
Seuator Allison replied it was not proposed
to do so to-morrow.

llouse of Representative*.
WASHINGTON, May 1Mr. Chittenden intro
duced a bill providing for the exchange of frac
tional silver coin for United States notes. Re
ferred. A number of Senate bills were re
ferred, and the House then went into commit
tee of the whole on the legislative appropria
tion bill, Mr. Eden in the chair.
Mr. Finley moved to strike out the clause
which directs the clerical force employed on
the medical and surgical history of the
war fehall be emplojed on v.ork necessary to
the payment oi pensions.
Mr. Conger charged the Democratic side of
the House with the responsibility of reducing
the force in the surgeon general's office to such
an extent as to prevent the examination of ap
plications for pensions.
Mr. Biagir thought it high time the gentle
man from Michigan, Mr. Conger, should come
to the front to participate in the hard work of
the veteians during the war. That gentleman
had be*n sitting in a soft seat in Congre&s,
drawing five thousand dollars a year.
Mr. Atkins stated the clerical force appro
priated for by the bill was sufficient to bring
up arrears of pensions. There was not a man
on the floor, whether he had followed the stais
and stripes or fought under the conquered ban
ner, who desired to obstruct tho prompt pay
ment of pensions.
The discussion which followed took a slightly
political turn, and was participated in by
Messrs. Cox of Ohio, Baker, Crittenden, Dur
ham, Atkins, and Garfield. The latter regret
ted the turn the discussion had taken, and was
especially sorry the speaker had seen fit to
come down to the floor yesterday and start a
political discussion.
Mr. Randall, the speakerThe gentleman
misrepresents entirely. I never introduced
politics or personalities. If I had done the
latter, I might, as I was under great provo
cation. As to the question of politics, I sav
there ought not to be any politics when it
comes to the expenditure ot money, but we
should all unite in seeeking to G&ve, as far as
possible, the public funds.
Mr. Chittenden said he was ashamed of his
country, when her pensioners were put off with
weak, unmeaning and unfaithful apologies.
The discussion was further continued by
Messrs. Banning and Wait. A vote was then
taken on the amendment offered by Mr. Pinley,
and it was agieed to, 104 to 67.
Mr. Cannon offered an amendment authoriz
ing a detail to the surgeon general's bureau of
a number of enlisted men sufficient to do the
work necessary for the prompt payment of
pensions. Adopted.
Mr. Dunnell moved to increase the number
of clerkB employed in the general land office.
He stated the force was not sufficient to answer
the demands upon it. The work of the office
was 15 years in arrears for want of sufficient
clerical force. The amendment was reported.
Without coming Lto {final action on the bill,
the committee rose.
Mr. Robertson, chairman of the committee
on Mississippi levees, reported a bill appropria
ting $3,871,574 for closing crevasses and
stiengthenmg the levees on the Mississippi
river. Ordered printed and recommitted.
Mr. Vance, chairman of the committee on
patents, reported a bill amending the patent
laws. Printed and recommitted.
Mr. Throckmorton introduced a bill limiting
rates for transportation of lreigbt and passen
gers over the Pacific railroad bridge at Omaha.
The House then took a recess till 7:30, the
evening session for debate only.

commerce, welcomed the Marshal in a short
speech. The Marshal then declared the exhibi

Bull and 144 men, all head soldiers and chiefs,
had sent a half-breed to Gen. Miles, inquiring
what kind of peace the United States would

which would end all trouble between the

DefalcationFlight of a Prominent iJe
To the Editor of the Globe:
NEW VIM, April 30.Things are lively np
here, and have broken out in a new spot in
our usnally staid and quiet county. Three
weeks ago, Judge Cox, at the request of the
county attorney, and it being represented to
him that there was not a single criminal case
to come up, directed the clerk not to draw a
grand jury, and now, alas, we are dumb
founded over the defalcation of our late city
treasurer, and now., over the extraordinary
skipping out of W. F. Smith, of Sleepy Eye,
leaving behind irregularities in the shape of
collections, forged endorsements, and particu
lar deviltry generally. Smith, heretofore, has
stood well as a lawyer and citizen, and his con
duct excites the wonderment and surprise of
everybody. Parties are in pursuit of him,
who say they will bring him back, dead or
alive. He was one of the most prominent
Republican politicians of the county, and
generally highly esteemed. Court meets here
next Tuesday, when, if anything turns np, I
will drop you a line. Yours truly, YJJJKTON.

when opposite the elevator. The pilot house
and roof were blown to a great height and fell

S T. Lours, May 1.-It has beenstated in pub
lic prints here that members of the socialistic
party have been drilling in this city for some
time past. An interview this after
noon with Mr. Curtin, city edi
tor of the Yolks Stemm, organ
of the German Socialists, and' who was very
active in the riots last July, and was ariested
and- imprisoned therefor, verified the state
ments. He said some 260 membeis
of the Socialistic Workmgmens Protecive
Association, have been drilling once a
week in Washington hall, and they expect to
have another hall soon. Their arms are Sprin
iield rifles. They have but about two hundred
yet, but expect more shortly. They are pur
chased mainly by subscriptions here,
but they have received some contributions
from the east.
When asked what these arms proposed to do,
he said they would protect the meetings of the
socialistic workmgmen from police power to
arrest without warrant of law of men who
have constitutional right lo assemble and dis
cuss their grievances. He says the party
numbers from five to six thousand in this city,
and fiom fifty to sixty thousand in the
country, all sworn members. Besides
these, he said, there are as many men in active
sympathy with the organization who are ready
and willing to give it aid at any time, but who
do not wish to enroll themselves, because of
the fear of losing their situations.

increased in the country from
five thousand ia two years to

A Plot to Seize ami Divide the Spoils With
tho Republicans of Illinois.
[Springfield Telegram Chicago Times.]
The Bepublican State central committee
is making great exertions to bring together
at the meeting of that committee, in Chica
go, on May 2, a large assemblage of repre
sentative Republicans from all parts of the
State. Circulars inviting such persons nave
been sent out to the number of not less than
one thousand. This action is interpreted as
meaning that an early convention will be
called, and that the convention will not in
dorse the nominations of the Nationals. It
is also said that the game at present stands
thus: The Republicans will, at an early
convention, to be called say, about May 15,
put np their own candidates for State officers,
and these are to be supported by the Na
tionals throughout the State. In return for
this service the Nationals are to have the
privilege of naming the candidates for the
Legislature and for Congress in all the strong
Democratic districts, and in all the districts
which the conclave to be held on May 2 shall
agree are.doubtful. The leaders of the Na
tionals are to be in attendance on the meet
ing, and will then assist in the proper divis
ion of the districts. In return for this ser
vice it is arranged by the Republican lead
ers that Bates shall be the Naitonal candi
date for the United States Senate in 1879:
that a fair division of the offices in the gift
of the next legislature, which the Republi
cans and Nationals will control, shall be
made, and that the Republicans shall help
elect Bates to the Senate. All the leading
Republicans and Nationals from here will be
in Chicago next week. Gov. Cullom and
Fred H. "Wines, of tne8tate board of chari
ties, will leave on Monday on the pretense
of inspecting the insane asylum at Elgin, but
will be in Chicago all the week. John Bonn
and Hamburger, the latter being a promi
nent candidate for the nomination for State
treasurer, will leave here at the same time.

for State treasurer, will be on band early in

-*TJONDON, May 1.Paris specials consider that
the opening of the exhibition was one of the
most impressive popular demonstrations ever
witnessed in Paris, although the official cere

breaking in upon the rear of the procession.
Near Port De Jena about one hundred thousand
people congregated at the exit gate and cheered
the departing dignitaries. Among the notables
present at the opening were the German and
Russian ambassadors and the papal nuncio.
LONDON, May l.Political demonstrations
for and against the government are tho order
of this week. The popular meeting at Brad
ford Monday in support of the government, at
which Gathorne Hardy, Indian secretary,
spoke, was followed vesterday by a meeting at
Manchester, at which John Bright spoke and
Brierly Hill in opposition. To-morrow an
other demonstration hostile to the government
will be held at Birmingham. The whole energy
of the opponents to the government in the
north and centre of England will thus be
heard in combined protest against the policy
of the cabinet. At the Manchester
meetings 1,800 delegates from liberal or
ganizations the north of England were
present. Humors of a dissolution of Parlia
ment are again rife. It is said the consrvative
associations have received secret instructions
to prepare for such a contingencj'.
The London correspondent of the Liverpool
Post is informed on trustworthy authority that
Lord Beaconsfield has resolved on dissolusion,
and it will occur about Whitsuntide.
It is stated as the result of private inquiries
made by the government at various ports as to
what steamers are available for cruisers or for
transport of arms or troops, that about seventy
steamers of the first class have been collected
and will be commisbioned when required. One
company here owning forty steamers have of

Pasha will come to St. Petersburg.
LONDON, May 1Ashton Cross, home secre
tary, made along address at the opening of the
conservative club in Preston. His speech was
mainly a repetition of the arguments of Lord
Salisbury's circular, maintaining that, although
such and such clauses of the treaty of San Ste
fano might be innocent, the treaty as ft whole
was very mischeviouB. The speech is im
portant, as showing, by its whole tenor, that
the government adheres to its demand for lay
ing the entire treaty before the congress. Mr.
Cross said the government in a congress would
convince the world, and probably even Rnssia,
that the treaty ought to be
modified. England, he said, would treat it
fairly, and admit changes that had arisen, but
she had a right to discuss them. He denied
that the government encouraged Turkey, or
was actuated by a warlike spirit. The govern
ment, he said, sought to bring about an accord
of powerH, but what good would there be in the
powers meeting in congress, if the treaty they
signed could be torn up at any moment by one
of the signatories.
LONDON, May 1.A St. Petersburg dispatch

Funeral Bites of this Much Beloved Clergy-
The First Swedish Lutheran church at the
corner of Stillwater and Woodbury streets, was
literally packed with people yesterday morning
and the streets around the entire block were
lined with carriages, the occasion being the
funeral of the Rev. Jonas Aoslund, who, as an
nounced in the GLOBE, died at Anoka on the
26th of April, and was brought here for inter
The little church was profusely draped in
mourning, and with the dense mass of sorrow
stricken visages wore an aspect of mourning real
and unassumed. The casket containing all
the mortal of the deceased, was placed near
the altar rails and covered with emblems of
faith, hope and immortality, wrought in snowy
white flowers. Within the communion rail*
were Rev. E. Norelius, of Vasa, Goodhue Co.
Rev. P. Sjoblom, Red Wing Rev. A. P. Ceder
stam, Mooer's Prairie Rev. J. P. Nyqvist. St.
Peter Rev. A. Engdahl, Minneapolis Rev.
John J. Frodsen, Chisago Lake Rev. A. P.
TomeU, Stillwater Rev. J. O. Cavallin. White
Rock Rev. P.J. 8 ward, Vasa Rev. J. Magni,
Trenton, Wis. Rev. A. Palmstrom, Hastings.
The services commenced by the Rev. A. P.
Monten, minister of the First Lutheran church,
reading appropriate passages of scripture and
offering prayer. There were several
hymns sung by the congregation,
but a beautiful poem, descriptive
of the liberated soul's passage of the spiritual
Jordan, and its welcome by angel voices and
angel hands, on Canaan's happy shore, was
sung by a double quartette, in a manner re
mindful of the Swedish Quartette. After the
singing of this beautiful hymn, ''Jordan's
Btream," the Rev. P. Sjoblohm preached an im
pressive discourse from the third chapter of
the second of Timothy, and part of the eleventh
verse"Out of them all the Lord delivered
me." In his concluding sentences he alluded
to the deceased, and compared him to the
Apostle Timothy in his tribulations and arBc
tions, and the merciful Father of all good had
delivered him out of them all. As the preacher
spoke with unsteady voice.and in touching wore a
of the deceased, the whole congregation was
melted to tears. The spectacle was affecting
in the extreme. At first the tears silently
flowed, but as tho fervid, solemn words of the
preacher became more earnestmore impres
sive, the whole mass of densely packed people
sobbed and swayed in bitterest grief. At the
conclusion of the sermon, Herman Stockeu
strom recited an original elegy, excellently
written, vthich narrated the virtues of de
ceased, and suggested some instructive
thoughts, poetically expressed. The delivery
of this poem again caused the whole congre
gation, almost literally, to lift up their voices
in weeping. It is seldom a funeral takes place
where so much genuine grief is shown as the
people of the first Swedish Lutheran church
displayed yesterday at the funeral of Rev.
Jones Auslund, and few ministers live and die
so beloved as he.
The Rev. Jonas Auslund was born in Sweden
in 1843. He came to America at the age of 24,
and continued his studies for the ministry. In
June, 1870, he was ordained at Andover, 111.,
and received bis first appointment at Cam
bridge, this State. In 1S71 he came to St.
Paul and continued in charge of the First
Lutheran church till 1877, when he was ap
pointed to Minneapolis. His health at this
time was failing fast, and he was unable to
enter upon his duties at his new appoint
ment the only time he officiated
being on Christmas day last, when
he assisted in the service. Thinking
change would probably benefit him, he paid a
visit to Anoka, where he became snddenly
worse, and his end came very quickly. The
deceased gentleman leaves a widow and one
child, a little girl four years of age, to mourn
their irreparable low.
Opening of the Season at White Bear.
The season has opened at the Leip House,
White Bear, that popular hostlery being thrown
open for guests yesterday. The proprietor has
made many important improvement*, which
will greatly add to his resort. He has built
two additions to his hotel, giving him a total of
fifty-three rooms. The grounds have been
beautifully laid out, and the boats placed in
excellent condition. The popular and careful
sailor Victor, will be in charge of tho boats.
The billiard room has been removed to the rear
of the hotel on GooBe lake, and upon its for
mer site a pavillion is being erected. Every
thing possible is being done to make the Leip
house attractive, and from present indications
it will be taxed to its full capacity.
The Tronbadonrs.
Oglesby's troubadours and bell ringers gave
an entertainment at the Opera House last even
ing. Not the least of the attractions was a
violin solo by Mr. Florence. It may be remem
bered that only nine days ago this gentleman
in stopping a runaway team, had his collar
bone and several ribs broken and MB arm lacer
ated, but no one would have thought last night
that he had ever met with so serious an acci
dent. His solo was remarkably well played.
The bell ringers are good. Oglesby is funny
so funny that people laugh in spite of them
selves. They play again to-night.

Pope and Fitz John Porter.
In a private letter received here from General
Pope, in speaking of the Fitz John Porter in

that he thinks this inquiry is but jost to
General Porter, as he should be allowed to have
the action of the court martial examined in
the light of the new evidence which he expects
to present that he urged General Grant three
years ago to permit the inquiry with a
view to a revision of the sentence of the
court. General Pope says that now the investi

grave importance to him to know whether the
