CHANGING THE BULKS.
WASHINGTO N, April 18.Consideration was
resumed of the Wallace resolution to alter
the rules of the Senate so that removals and
appointments may be made by the secretary
of the Senate and sergeant-at-arms respect
ively. The rule proposed to be amended
requires removals and appointments to be
approved by the President of the Senate.
The di=cussion was interrupted by the close
of the morning hour, and the appropriation
bill was taken up and Senator Kandolph
spoke in favor of the measure.
Senator Randolph said the question pre
sented in a simple form was this: "A a
condition of granting supplies to the army,
has Congress a right to demand a redress of
what a majority of its members deem griev
ances?" had grave doubts, not as to the
power of Conc ress,but as to the expediency of
the use of that power. was proud of the
army and its achievmeuts, but he would be
lost to all sense of truth and the remembrance
of history if he admitted for a momeni the
MONSTROUS AND DANGEROUS DOCTRINE
that this government had its power, far less
its life, in a period of peace through the ex
istence of its army, or that the total disband
ment of it |would bring serious danger to
*shf e. A army must needs be a force
apart from the people. It composition and
usefulness compel it to be so.
Senator Kandolph said that in 1876 he
bore a message from Governor Hampton to
he then President of the United States, urg
ing the latter to withdraw the troops from
the State hou3e. You may imagine, sir,
said Senator Randolph, my astonishment
and indignation when in an angry tone and
uncivil manner, the President replied: "I
won't withdraw the troops." I do
not regard the decision of the su
preme court of the State, and if I
had any messa ge to send to Hampton it
would be that his message is an imperti
nence." A impertinence, sir, for the Gov
ernor of a State to communicate his wishes,
not demand, his rights as he might properly
have done to the President of the United
States. A impertinence, indeed. "Upon
what meat does our Caesar feed that he is
grown so great?" No, Mr. President, we
cannot make too much haste to

cited instances where the military had been
used in Maryland. read from an old
number of the Boston Commercial, which
he believed was the organ of Charles Sum
ner, to show that that paper openly ex
cused the use of the military power to me
nace the majority in Congress of the sup
porters of the government policy. also
quoted from a letter of General Giant to
President Johnso n, in which the former
expressed his hope that the use of the army
would never be invoked on the eve of an
election. wondered if this sentiment
met the vievs of the party now generally
credited with the intention to trust their
falling fortunes to the prestige of Grant's
name, and whether it was an agreeable
commentary upon their present desire to re
tain the laws by which alone could the army
be used to influence elections.
After an executive session, adjourned until
Jltise of Representatives.

hour was dispensed with and the subsidiary

spoke in opposition to the proposed repeal
of the general election law. denounced
the intended legislation as a bold and wanton
attempt to wipe from the law every protec
tion of the ballot box and to surrender it
into the unholy han ds of hired repeaters and
ballot box staffers at the North and of tissue
ballot cheats at the South.
Mr. McKinley, having read that Black
burn, in the last session, said the Democrats
meant to wipe from the statute books all
war measures, Mr Blackburn left the
chair and denounced the want of fairness
and truth in presenting from his speech an
incomplete extract. The gentleman from
Ohio, McKinley, he said, had told the com
mittee that he, Blackburn, had said, speak
ing for his party, that that party did not in
te nd to stop until it had stricken from the
statute books the last vestige of our war
measures. That utterance was not true,
and the record showed it.
had asked that gentleman to read
the whole sentence, and he had declined,say
ing he had not the speech there. (Black
burn) had then sent the gentlem an the
speech with the remainder of the sentence
underscored. had also written a marginal
no te asking whether it was not unfair to so
garble a sentence, and the gentleman had
tak en the speech, pitched it on his desk, and
declined to do him justice. The sentence in
full was that "the Democratic party would
not stop until it had stricken from the statute
book the last vestige of war measures which,
like these election laws, had been born of
passions incident to civil strife, and looked

force of every amendment to the constitu
tion. (Applause.) recognized their
validity as part of the organic law of the
land, and he held that man faithless to his
duties of citizenship who refused to give
them full force and effect. The remarks of
the gentlem an from Ohio had been wanti ng
in truth and fairness in attempting to put
him (Blackburn) in an improper and unfair
light before the country.
Mr. McKinley said he meant
no discourtesy to the gentleman
from Kentucky. said i his remarks that
he would read the remainder of the sentence
if the speech was sent to him, and if he bad
observed the page who brought him the
speech, he would have stopped and read
what the gentleman had asked. only
made this statement for the purpose of
placing himself right in the respeot doe the
gentleman from Kentucky, not for the pur
pose of taking baok or modifying anything
he had said. did not think that the
remainder of the sentence modified 'it.
Mr. McKinley then continued bis remarks
at considerable length, assailing the Demo
was the next speaker. said that if the
gentlemen on the other side were really
anxious to preserve peace and purity of
elections they would be the last to attempt
to break down the only remaining national
fortress reared for that purpose. Did they
desire an honest registration, these laws pro
vided it. Did they want a pure ballot, these
laws secured it. Did they want a fair count,
these laws ensured it. Did they want true
returns, these laws enjoined it. Did they
want peace and order at polls, these laws
commanded it. There was nothing in
these laws that was a terror to
any man save one who had
committed or was meditating an attack on
the purity of elections. referred to out
rages on the colored men in Louisiana and
said that the Republican party had been
stamped out in blood. Free speech, a free
press, free homes, free emigration and free
ballots had been made impossible within
many portions of that State. I view of
these facts he listened with impatience to
the hypocritical cant about peace, protec
tion and purity at the polls. Even now,
while membe rs on the other side were pro
fessing such jealousy for the rights of Amer
ican citizens a whole race was fleeing
from some of the Southern States as they
would flee from a pestilence. They were
fleeing, not to escape federal bayonets, but
ruffianly bludgeons not from federal bullets,
but from Southern bowie knives not to
escape federal courts, but Southern fraud
not from marshals, but from murderers not
from registration, but from masked raiders
not from supervisors of election, but from
Southern shot guns. I a word, they were
fleeing from a country where every right
was cloven down, and every wrong went un
Mr. Gibson made several efforts to get in a
disclaimer of these statements, but Burrows
declined to yield to him. continued his
remarks in the sa me strain and concluding,
addressed the Democrats: "Did it ever occur
to you that though yon should withhold all
supplies for support of the government pos
sibly itmight not yet be surrendered? Did
it ever occur to you that although you
should protract this siege until this Congress
shall have died by virtue of its limitation,
there will possibly be no surrender then?
Withhold support from the executive, and are
ou quite sure that there will be no remedy

ment, are you confident that there
will be no Congress? Why, gentlemen,
ou are as impotent to overthrow this
government by starvation as you were to an
nihilate it by the sword. You may distress,
but ou cannot destroy. (Vehement applause
on the Republican side.) Fo let me tell ou
that when that time comes, the sa me loyal
people from the sa me loyal States, who took
their lives in their hands and we nt forth to
do battle for the defense of the republic, en
during the weary march, the protracted siege,
the smoki ng hell of battle, and the more hor
rible hell of Southern prison pens, until from
the dark waves of rebellion they bore
on their broken arms and lacer
ated breasts the bleeding form
of the republic and planted her feet on the
steady rook of constitutional governme nt
and civil liberty, who, animated by the same
patriotism, when ou attempt to starve this
republic, will fly to her side at the first cry
of her distress, and there they will stand in
ceaseless vigil, not with a sword but with
sustenance, not with implements of war but
with unmeasured wealth, not with shotted
cannon but with unlooked coffers, not with
bandages but with plenty, and bending over
her prostrate form they will succor, and sus
tain her, ministering to her neccessities until
in the fullness of ti me they can wrench from
her throat the cowardly hand that clutched
it, and then, thrilling with new life, she will
spring to her feet, and the very altar which
you had built for her immolation shall be
co me a throne on which she shall stand,
clothed in the majesty of her power the
resceptred and reorowned goddess of liberty.
replying to the quotations made by Burrows
from the Teller report, stated that citizens of
Louisiana had been arrested, charged with
the offenses as stated in that report that
they had been conveyed four or five hundred
miles from their homes to the city of New
Orleans that they had been tried before
juries to whom the test oath had been ap
plied, before judges who were in sympat hy
with the Republican party and they had
been fully and honorably acquitted.
Mr. Burrows"Who were acquitted?"
Mr. Gibson"The citizens."
Mr. Burrows"That is an old trick down
there." TLaughter on the Republican sid.
Mr. GibsonIf it was a trick it was a
trick played by men who could take the iron
clad oath as jurors, a trick played by the very
men whom the gentleman would now invoke
to conduct elections in that State, deputy
marshals, supervisors, judges and jurors,
who could take the iron clad oath that they
had never had any sympat hy even with the
Southern people in the late war. I should
like to know why it is gentlem en should
speak so disrespectfully of the judiciary of
the United States. Was the judiciary so low
as no longer to be entitled to the respect of
this body? Although the gentleman had
made a declamation against this side of the
hou se and called us conspirators, I had
hoped that a decent respect for his own par
ty, if not for the amenities of the House and
the constitution of the country, [derisive
laughter on the Republican side] would have
kept him from assaulting juries and calling
Mr. BurrowsThere is certainly no occa
sion for the warmth exhibited by the gentle
man, because I only quoted from the repor
of the Senate committ ee showing that intim
idation and murder were practiced in Louisi
ana during the last election. I made no act
cusation against him nor any officers of the
courts. If gentlemen on the other side are
earnest in desiring fair elections, why did
they not say something in regard to the last
election in Louisiana, when it was a notori
ous fact that in the parish of Caddo, extend
ing thirty-five or forty miles, the ballot box
was placed at the northern extremity of that
parish, and the voters were compelled to
make a journey of twenty miles and back
again in order to reach the ballot box?
who had obtained the floor and had yielded
for this colloquy, now claimed his right to re
same it, bat there was a general request on
the Republican side that Burrows would be
allowed to proceed.
Mr. Turner, with great excitement of man
ner, objected to Burrows proceeding, be
cause he had called the Democratic party
conspirators. His objection was encoun
tered with shouts of laughter on the Repub
lican side. Burrows, however, by consent
of Coffroth was allowed to continue his
remarks. He said he simply wanted
to finish the sentence he had commenced be
fore he had been intimidated by the distin
guished gentleman from Kentucky. [Laugh-
ter.] simply wanted to say it was a
notorious fact that witnesses who had been
subpoenaed to appear before the United States
court at New Orleans to testify in regard to
the intimidation and murder of colored
voters had been taken from the boat on their
way to New Orleans, carried on shore, and
were there surrendered to a band of men
without hats or shoes, but masked, and that
the whereabouts of these men had never
been ascertained since. Mr Elam denied
generally the charges of intimidation at the
late election made against citizens of
Mr. Coffroth said that an honest election
and fair election, when a voter could deposit
his ballot untrammeled and unawed, was the
palladium of American liberty. The teach
ing of statesman from the earliest history,
counting down until the Republican party
had come into power, had been an unbroken
declaration that the federal power had no
authority to interfere in elections, but that
each State should regulate the mann er of
holding its elections. maintained that
the ballot was the weap on with which a
freeman was to protect his personal liberty
and his civil rights. The gentleman
from Ohi o, Garfield, had sounded the
and waved the bloody shirt, and the whole
camp had danced on hearing the bitter de
nunciation from the other side. had
ventured to look over there and had been de
lighted to see that his Republican friends
were not actually enraged, but were as peace
ful and pleasant as a Ma mornin g. If the
voters of the country could be present and
hear for themselves, they would soon con
clude that this acrimonious debate was only
intended to revive bitter feelings for the pur
pose of keeping the Republican party in
power. argued that the Democratic party
did not want to starve the nation. It aim

through this place in opp o

and our citizens becoming alarmed lest
something serious might occur pending
their sojourn, engag ed the attention of
some of the bravest of the to wn to devise
some measures of relief A about 1 2 p. M.,
while eleven of these desperate characters
were congregated around a camp fire dis
cussing the vicissitudes of life and its con
sequent hardships, they were very abruptly
disturbed and admonished of music in the
air by the appearance of a small bat
BRAVE AND DETERMINED
body of men under the leadership of the in
trepid Capt. Thornton, backed by some of
the boys who have been under fire. The ap
pearance of this squad rather disconcerted
the beleaguered enemy. A few words settled
the matter. The tramps, all ^pe mind,
were going north, and the boys
concluded it was a good ti me to
start out. Hence they rose from around
the burning embers and marched in
solid compact for the railroad track sur
rounded by the braves, Major itafferty in tae
advance with a blunder-buss in his pocket.
Capt. Thornton looked like a
a double ender, end by bis side pur brave
county auditor,' Knudson^ so gaiiant and
bold, tall as a flag staff, and Corporal Johns
ton was there. There was a couple of operators
to telegraph the ne ws in case of a battle.
Brave Severance brought up the rear. His
weapon was at right shoulder shift, and the
muzzle was reaching for the upper region.
The march was continued in solid and
solemn column until about two miles east of
town, when a farewell was spoken, and a
parting salute was given. I was rumored
that Express Messenger Egglest on was
but it was only a terrible fright that made
him look so pale this morning. Especial
mention should be made of Sergeant
Clark, nightwatchman of the railroad com
pany. Ever on the alert, looking over the
cars he encountered three of these desperate
fellows and halted them without hesitation,
for fear, but they were carrying a supply of
water in their hats to the camp of
their friends and they were allowed to pro
ceed. This should be a warning to all
tramps, and let it be understood that all
such fellows will receive like fato from these
stalwarts of St James.

Z1EUT. CLARK'S REPORT.
The Capture of the Hostile Cheyennes.
Department headquarters is in receipt of
Lieut. W Clark's official report of his
late expedition against Little Wolfs band
of hostile Cheyennes. The report in detail
gives an account of the operations preceding
the capture of the band, and the means
adopted to bring about its consummation.
The command suffered many hardships aris
ing from the cold, and encountered no few
obstacles in swollen streams and barren
country. Both men and horses were sub
jected to great privations, but
under all difficulties, the lieutenant com
mends the men for untiring energy
and cheerful endurance. The report enu
merates the numb er captured, together with
all the impediments taken with the captives.
The importance and size of the capture
has in no way been estimated by the tele
graphic accounts of the affair. The whole
band, with all their arms and ponies,
were taken in by a surprise,
which so completely appalled th em
that the capture was made without any
casualties to the Lieutenant's force. Little
Wolf and 85 warriors were captured with
their families, making the grand total 205.
Innumerable trophies of different kinds also
fell into the Lieutenant's hands. After this
success, the command got into Fort Eeogh
without any particular adventure, the cap
tives being brought in with safety.
Lieut. Clark has added new laurels to
those already won and becomingly worn, by
this gallant and successful expedition. Al
though a young officer, having graduated at
the United States Military Academy in 1868,
Lieut. Clark has seen much frontier ser
vice, and this late affair is only
one of many in which he has been the cen
tral figure and the hero. For so me time he
served as Gen. Crook's chief of scouts in the
department of the Platte, and with as emi
nent success as attended him during his
I recognition of Lieut. Clark's late ser
vices, Gen. Terry has caused the following
letter to be dispatched to him and made a
part of the records of the department head

through commanding officer, Fort Eeogh,
Srs: I am instructed by Brigadier General
Terry, commanding the department, to convey
to you an expression of his great commendation
of the energy, skill, perseverence and excellent
judgment displayed by you recently in com
mand of troops in the vicinity of the Yellow
stone, Powder and Little Missouri rivers, while
engaged in operations resulting in the capture
by you of Little Wolf's band of hostile Chey
enne Indians. To you, to the offic rs and men,
aud to the Indian scouts and interpreters, both
Sioux and Cheyennes, of your command, the

able service successfully performed, despite
adverse circumstances of Arctic weather,
broken and inhospitable ground and swolen
streams. The General has commended the
conduct of yourself and command to higher
authority. I am very respectfully your
obedient servant, GEORGE D. RUGGLES,

Cruelty to a Child.
The neighborhood in the vicinity of Fort
and Chestnut streets is quivering with ex
citemedt over a case of inhuman cruelty to
a 10-year-old boy The parties who inflict
the cruelty upon the child are his parents.
At least, Thomas Nolen is the boy's father,
while the unnatural woman who abets him
in his inhumanity bears the relationship of
Thursday night the neighbors were shocked
by loud cries from the child, and the thud of
cruel blows. A policeman was called in to
quell the disturbance, but for some reason
failed to arrest the monsters, though re
quested by the neighbors to do so The
outcry against this shame is general in the
neighborhood, and the cruelty has
been carried to such a brutal extent
that the intellect of the boy has been im
paired from the beatings and other punis h
ments inflicted up on him. I is said the
father never indulges in the murderous pas
time except when in liquor but the woman
is ceaseless in her tortures up on the frail
body of the infant. The child has
been a victim to the brutality
for sometime, and the impunity with which
it has been done, has lately encouraged the
parents to a double zest in theii diabolical
treatment. The moanings and cries of the
child and the sound of blows are almost of
hourly occurrence, so much so that the
neighbors have determined to rescue the
abused child, and to this end the case was
committed to Secretary Chase, of the relief
society, for full examination.
