olution Relative to the Danville and IJo
piali KJots—Ho Plead for Kqnal Rights

Arm of the Government.
The Senate.
' Washington,!^.2B.Senator Vest, from
the committee en public lauds, reported
favorably the bill repealing the timber
culture laws. It was ordered to be placed
on the calendar.
Senator Cameron, Wisconsin, introduced
a bill to establish the territory of north
Senator Platt of offered a resolution for
•which he asked immediate considera
tion, dirictiDg the oommittee on post of
fices aD ! post roads, to inquire whether
the Lei - -aphic charges have boen injari
oasly <\i- -led by large stock dividends of
the Waste, i Union Telegraph company,
or the consolidations or contracts with
competing or other companies, and
whether through ' the Gould #
stock or telegraph company, otherwise the*
Western Union company bad prescribed
rules or regulation* for the transmission of
press news. The resolution authorizes to
send for persons and papers. Objection
was made by senator Sherman, and it
• went over till to-morrow.
Senator Sherman's isolation on the
Virginia and Mississippi elections was
takea up.
f Senator Shsrman said at the beginning
of tha preseii. passion he had felt that re
cent events in the states of Virginia and
Mississippi were of such importance as to
demand a full and impartial investigation
of the causes that led to them the real
facts involved and the proper constitution
al remedy to prevent their recurrence, and
if necessary to farther secure all Amer
ican citizen's freedom of speech in the
open assertion of political opinions
and the peaceful exercise of
the right to vote. Now that suffi
cient time had elapsed to allay to some
extent the excitement caused by these
events, he hoped the senate would make
this investigation so that our citizens of
every state mi^hl understand how far tha
national government will protect them in
the enjoyment of their rights, or if it was
helpless or listless; that, no longer relying
upon the barren declarations of the con
stitution, each man for himself might
appeal to the right of self defense or to
boasted American right of migration to
more friendly regions. Tbe allegations in
this resolution as to the Danville riot or
masaacre were, he said, founded upon
statements in the public prints supported
by oaths of witnesses, and their substantial
truth also vorifie 1 by the published state
ment of a member of this body, « senator
of the state of Virginia. The allegations
as to Mississippi were founded npon
copious narratives in the public print?,
the proceedings of public meetings,
and the action, and failnre to
act of officers of the state government
inducting governors--, jadges of o*urts and
juries. If thss9 staiumonta are true, then
in both of those states there has been «r-
ganized conspiracies to subvert the free
dom of elections- accompanied by murder
and violence in many forms. The crimes
depicted are not ordinary crimes, bit those
of the prevailing majority to eabvart by
violence the highest constitutional privi*
leges of citizens, and could not from their
nature be inquired of or punished by or
dinary tribunals. If they are true, then in
those communities members of our party
and our race have no rights which tho pre
vailing majority are bound to respect.
He had no desire to open up sectional
questions or renew oldstreifs. Still, if thos
allf-itions are true, it would be cowardly,
a shrinking from the gravest public duty
to allow such events to deepen into prece
dents, which would subvert the foundation
of Republican institutions and convert our
eleotions into organized orimes. If the
event at Danville were tbe result of a
•chance outbreak, or not between opposing
parties of a different race of men, they
might properly be left to be
dealt with by the local authorities, but if
the riot and massacre were a part of the
machinery devised by a party to deter an
other party or race from the freedom of
elections, or the free, open expression of
political opinions, when they constituted a
crime against the national government.and
the highest duty of the government was to
maintain at every hazard the canal rights
and privileges of citizens. If the events in
Bopiah county, Mississippi, were merely
lawless invasion of individual
rights. though they involved
murder as well as ether crimes, they
should be left to the local authority, and if
jnstice could not bo administered by the
courts and the citizen wa3 without a reme
dy from lawless violence, then he must
fail back upon his right of self defense, or
failing in that mast seek a home where his
rights will be respected or observed. But
if these individual crimes involved the
greater one of organized conspiracy of a
party or race to deprive another party or
race of citizens of the enjoy
ment of unquestioned rights,
accompanied ■ with overt acts
with puysioal power sufficient to accom
plish the purpose, then it becomes a
national qoeetjon/whieh must be dealt
with by theuatkm--i"£° <*'Irninent. The war
emancipated and m to* citizens of 5,000,
--000 people who had !»t,*n slaves. No court
ever denied the power of the national gov
ernment to protect citizens in the essen
tial rights of freemen. No man should be
allowed to hold a seat in either house of
congress whose election was secured >by
crimes such a- depicted here, nor was it
sufficient to say the elections re
ferred to were not national*
election in the serse thai they
did not involve the election of a president
or a member of congress. While the power
of congress over the election of senators,
representatives and president ex
tended to makiDg and altering laws and
regulations passed by the respective states,
and therefore was fuller than in respect to
state elections, yet the constitution pro
vided that the right of the people to be se
cure in their persons, houses, papers and
effects against unreasonable searches and
seizures shall not be violated, that'all per
sons born or naturalized in the United
States, and subject to tha jurisdiction
thereof, are citizens of the United States
that no state shall make or enforce any
law which shall abridge the privileges or
or immunities of citizens of the United
States, nor shall any state deprive any
person of life, liberty or property without
due process of law, nor deny any person
within its jurisdiction the equal protection
of the law, and that the rights of citizens
to vote shall sot be denied or abridged by
the United States or by any state on ac
. count of race, color or previous
condition of servitude. It also declares
that congress shall have power to make
all laws necessary and proper for
carrying into execution the foregoing
powers and all other powers vested by this
constitution in the government of the
United States or in any department or offi
cer thereof. Power is also given to congress
to enforce all the recent arnendmenls by
appropriate legislation. If the essential
rights of citizenship were overthrown by a
state or by the people of a state, with the
sanction of the local authorities within the
limits of the etate, then congress as the
legislative power of the United States is
bound to provide additional safegaards,
and ' should exhaust all the
powers of the national government
to maintain these essential rights of citi
zenship, within the courts of all states, in
as full and complete a manner aa it would
gu^rd and protect, unquestioned the rights
of citizens of the United States within the
domains of tha most powerful nations of
the world.
He could appreciate the changes that
bad coounad in the southern states, and
that natural antagonisms would ari?a by
emancipated slaves mingling ia tha same
community with their former masters.
He ooald pardon the prejudices of race,
oasto. and even local ti63, atidi.be Ameii:-an
people, he thought, had waited v?ith
forbearance for the time whta cocstitn
tioral rights would be respected
without regard to race, color,
creed or party. If the time had come
when members of the Rep;:olican party
through whose agency largely the exist
ence of the governmeni hid been main
tained could not enjoy their constitutional
rights, were murdered at the ballot box
without fear on the part of their murder
ers of puuishment, were driven from their
homes by outrage and terror, and that
black and white alike were subjected to os
tracism and injustice, and bs a party dis
franchised, then, indeed, was a patient
inquiry demanded and a full," ;open
manly assertion that rights aud
equalities should be maintained
and enforced at every hazard. If the
Bopiah resolutions were the creed of the
Democratic party south, then, indeed, was
the war a failurej They seemed to him
the very germ of despotism and barbarity.
And yet he was assured by a gentleman
friendly to them, that they were the creed
of nine-tenths of the party in power in
Mississippi. It was right that the ground
work of opinions so utterly repugnant to
republican institutions should be known."
"In this inve3tigatien," he said,
"I would seek every pallia
tion or excuse for the conduct
the people complained of, I would give to
their motives and natural feelings, making
in thsir situations the most charitable con
struction; I would give to them all the
political power they ever enjojed, and
without unkiudneßs or pains or penalties,
or evea reproaohes, I would extend to
them every right, favor or facility enjoy
ed by any citizen in any part of our
country, but v/heu this concession is made,
then I would demand that in the states
under their control the freedom and
equality of rights and privileges guaran

lican or Democrat, 8!; all bo secured r>y the state
government, or if not.that these rights and priv
ileges shall be asserted and maintained by the

appeal to every generous-minded man, to every
lover of his country, to every one who wishes to
enjoy his own rights by his own tireside, free
from embarrassment, to s.and by those who,
yielding to others the protection of laws in the
enjoyment of equal rights, will dotnacd ihs

On the conclusion of Senator Mahone's

New Yobk, Jan. 29.—William H. Van

sell, and they should advance. The ad
vance so far is genuine and healthy.

I think the bottom bus been reached, and
that from now on there will be a good

about new roads entering the field as com
"Do yon anticipate any important legis

upon tho railroads?"
"I cm only say the public are not going
to expect transportation for nothing, but
at fair, reasonable prices there is no rea
son why a man who has money in roads
should not get good returns for his invest

an apple stand. We all have to live, and
the man who owns railroad bonds or mer

the amount of his sales and the profit he

The Imposing: Ceremonies at the Burial of
>„■■.' * : the l>ecea»«d Statesman.
Berlin, Jan. 29.—The funeral of Lasker was
carried ontin accordance with, the programme.
Twenty thousand people joined in the proces
sion to the cemetery, and it is estimated that
hundreds of thousands lined the streets along
■which the procession parsed, notwithstanding
the snow storm. There was not the slightest
attempt at anti-Semitic demonstration by the.
secessionist party. Lasker'a family intend to
offer thanks to the |congress of the United
States for the honor paid the deceased. At the
synagogue the casket was hidden under wreaths.
Lasker's old constituency, Meiningen, Bent a
solid silver wreath, add another magnificent
wreath came from his birth place. The American
minister, Sargent placed a wreath upon the cof
fin. The assembly represented the whole intel
lectual elite of Beilin, but no member of the
ministry was present, which was considered
significant. While all the Liberal papers de
voted columns to this event the Nord Deutcher
ZeiUmg dismissed it with a half dozen lines in
tha obscurest corner. Harr Koapp in an address
sai I, thai; Lasker was such a practical politi
cian tbfit even Prince Bismarck
was unable to dispense with his
assistacce. When Lasker refused his co-opera
tion, it was always from important grounds,
without any trace of personal prejudice. As
shovfijg his indefat.igability, Kapp recalled the
remark of the American physician, who perform
ed the post mortem elimination, that his fatal
illness was probably traceable to the fact that
Lasker bad resumed his parliamentary duties
when he had scarcely recovered from a- severe
typhoid fever. Kapp concluded, "Thy high
deeds can never die, thy wreaths fade not."

Operators on the bull side manifested increased
confidence ai/I bought freely throughout the day.
Dealings we: .• unusually well distributed and the
entire list participated in the improvement. This
rise in prices reused some of the smaller shorts
to cover, but it is believed leading bears have
not yet taken ;in shorts. Tho only important
reaction occurred at opening a::d again about 2,
prices falling off 34 to 1^ per cent. The last
decline was occasioned by reports that rates on
Utah business had not yet been restored, the re
ports having arisen from misconception of dis
patches sent east by Commissioner Vining.
After close of' business it became known - that
Commissioner Vining's telegrams simply stated
the companies were.to use classifications ofTrunk
lines instead of Union Pacific, as classificaton is
different. It also announces that rates have been
restored and matters were working harmoni
ously. The change in the ten? per of speculation
is steadily brirging in Joutaide orders to ' buy
