Washington, March 21.-The House went to?
day into Committee of the Whole (Mr. Hatch, of
Missouri, in the chair) on the bill to establish a
.Oaoortmont of Labor.
Ar. Buchanan, of New-Jeiaey, moved to etrite
ont the clause charging the Commissioner to as?
certain, whenever industrial changes shall make
lb essential, thc oost of producing articles at tha
time dutiable in the United States in leading
countries where such articles are produced.
Mr. Mills of Texas, regarded the clause which
lt was projiosed to striko out as the most important
feature of tho bill. The people were told that the
wages of labor on the other side of the ocean were
less than those on this side, and that the cost
of production was lees ia Europe than ia America.
Who knew whether that was true or notf He
wished the Commissioner to get ths information
from men thoroughly equipped for the work. Then,
when Congress came to legislate upon the tariff
question, gentlemen would not be able to deceive
the people, who would be able to see for them?
selves the labor cost of production in European
countries. Let gentlemen come up to the scratch,
and bave this matter investigated. Gentlemen
should not tell the people that the tariff wm In?
tended for their benefit. Every line of it woe
intended for the benefit of tho trusts.
Mr. Reed, of Maine, expressed s doubt whether
the chairman of the Committee on Way* and
Means, if he got tbe information, would allow lt
to be read to the committee.
Mr. Buohanan said that tho very excitement
his motion had produced furnished but another
nason why the clause should not be retained in
Ute bill. If the very mention of the matter gave
rite to a political discussion, lt the clause were
kept in the bill, the Dopartment of Labor would
1.ccomi.- a political football kicked this way and
that by political parties.
The motion to strike out was defeated.
Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, offered an amend*'
ment to extend the inquiry to the amount of wages
paid in various industries} accompanying hie
amendment with the remark that " We all stand on
the question of labor.* The amendment was
Mr. Mills offered an amendment to t_.c-.rt the
words ? per diem, weekly and otherwise" after the
void ? wai"'-**" iu Mr Randall's amendment. He
Mini he wanted to know thc difference between
thc productive efficiency of wages in Europe and
Dds country?whether, if a man in this country
did five times as much work and got twice as muon
par. he was not the cheaper of the two.
Mr. Randall?I am not going to philosophize aa
to that.
Tbe amendment was adopted.
On motion of Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, an amend?
ment was adopted adding to Mr. Randall's amend?
ment, the words ? ?nd the hoars employed per day."
Ibo following amendments extending tne soope
of the inquiry were adopted:
By Mr. Bland?The profits of the manufacturer
and producer of dutiable articles.
By Mr. Washington, of Te_n<vwee?The com?
parative oost of living In this wuntry and Europe.
Bt Mr. MilMken-And the kind of living.
Mr. Browne, of Indiana, offered an amendment
extending the Inquirv as to the effect of the
protective tariff in the T7n1t***d States on the ag?
ricultural Industry nnd especially as to it* effee*
on the mortgage indebtedness of farmers. He
had he.'.-rd lt *-t*ited on the floor that the monga/**?
In !(*ht**.ln'*R** of the ten States of the >fississipt>l
nnd Ohio Valleys amounted to $S..'.no.OOn,Ooo
Tho gentleman (Bland) had received his infor?
mation from nartistin ne*-**spopet*s. From an in
vestiyation made by Edward Atkinson, lt was
shown that the mortgage Indebtedness of those
States vhs about ti,<-4S,of)0,ooofcoT less than one
third of the tremendous sum which had been
paraded before the public. The snm stated by
the gentleman as the mortgage Indebtedness of
Indinnn wns $70,000,000 more than the value of
Ibe entire real estate In that State. He assumed
that the gentleman's statement was unsupported
by facts, and had been paraded for the purpose
of frightening somebody on some subject.
Mr. Mills ottered nn amendment extending the
innuirv to an ascertainment whether articles are
now controlled by tfr-ntta, and wlriat effeeta those
trusts had had in limiting and keeping up prices.
Mr. Weaver nt I*-.-***-*, said that the b**t tes?
timony ne could procure showed that two-*thirds
of all the farm land of tbe United States was
under mortgage.
Mr. Randall offered an amendment extending
the inquiry as to thf effect of the state of the
currency upon the agrioultural Interef-t* No one
could condemn more than he did this system of
u combine*,'1 and trusts He woe inclined to think
that the currency bad more to do than the tariff
Id this condition of affairs touching agriculture.
tBn Gear, of Iowa, said that this talk about
mortgage indebtedness in Iowa woe all ** rot and
demagoguery" When the gentleman from Mis?
souri said that the mortgage indebtedness of that
State -Alas $625,000,000, he mods a mistake of
Mr. Reed explained the heavy mortgaging of
lands In the West as being due to the fuot that
tbe people were settling on lands largely beyond
their immediate necessities and because they were
extending their enterprises over the prairies.
This country was prosperous and growing more
and more prosjierous every year under the pro?
tective srstenrj and yet gentlemen for political
effect undertook to perpetuate whit, he said, was
a slander on their own States.
Mr. Milliken offered an amendment requiring
the Commissioner of Labor to investigate the
Mills Tariff hill, and to report what effect it
would have on the labor and industry of the
United States and on foreign Industry and on the
profits of foreign manufacturers and tbo markets
of the American farmer.
Pending action upon the amendment, the com?
mittee roso.
WAFHTNT.TO't*. March $1 (fl***ee1sJ).?The Senate
this afternoon tonk up the House bill for the open?
ing of the great Sioux Reservation ls Dokota, aad
passed it with sundry amendemnte which had been
submitted by the Senate Committee on Indian
Affairs. The amendments make no general change
in the provisions of the bill. Tlie measure pro?
vides for the setting aside of five reservations to
be located about the present agenolee at whioh the
Sioux receive their ammunition and supplies,
namely, the Pine Ridge, Rose Bod, Lower Bruie,
Standing Rock and Cheyenne River, and provides
that the remaining lana shall be thrown open to
settlement under the Homestead law, the home?
steader to pay 50 centa per acre for tbe lana,
which cannot be In more than 160 acre traots.
Thc funds thus accruing are to be paid into the
Treasury for the general civilisation and education
of the Indians. Am nearly os practicable thc lands
within the reservations thus set aside are to be
allotted to tlie Indians in severalty.
The land thrown open to settlement will be
largely between the White and Cheyenne rivers,
comprising some 12,000 square miles, or about
11,000,000 acree It comprises some of the best
agricultural lunds In the Territory of Dakota.
The chief importance of the measure, however,
iles in the fact that it does away with one of the
greatest obstacles to the development of the coun?
try. The inability of railroads to cross the reser?
vation and thus reach the fuel In the Black Hills
Las been a great obstacle In the erection of great
manufactures and In the settlement of some of the
western portions of the Territory. Under tbe
terms of the hill, agreements mode some time ago
between the Chicago and Northwestern, and
Chicago, Milwaukee and St Paul railroads and the
Indians, hy which certain rights of way and tracts
of land for station houses omi other purposes were
Bureen upon at certain prices, were confirmed to
these roads, aud the roads having been already
kurveved some y _? ago the construction is ex?
pected to begin at onoe.

this after .ooh took up the bill to prevent ob?

and to punish and prevent suoh oL'ances, and
making other provisions in connection therewith.
Tbe. measure woe read at legth, and then one by

president pro tem po re, Mr. Ingalta, was about to
put lt upon ita lina! postage, vt lien Senator Hisoock
suggested that as his colleague, Mr. Everts, hap?
pened to be temporarily absent, it would probably
be well to allow the bill to rest in its present shape
until to-morrow, in order that Mr. Everts, who
had introduced the bill, might be present and

before final action should be taken upon a measure

WASHDittTOM, March 21.-An Informal
onference at whioh a dozen or more leading Riv
lublloans of tbe House were present was held
aet night. Among the men present were iseveral
f ths Republican members of Ways and .Mi ans,
rho discussed the situation of the turill quotion.
*he arbitrary and unprecedented action of thc
-Majority was described, and it was determined
hat there shall be a full exposure of it at thc
iroper time. There was considerable talk of an
uformal nature about the offering of a substitute
or the i'ree Trade bill, aa well u_ for the Randall
?IU. Among Riapublioans in the House the |ubject
f legislation to reduce the surplus ls a matter of
laxly discussion. While a variety of views is
-pn-maed, it ?s apparent tli-t the Kopubliuin. will
?e easily able to agree not only ou u general imo
if policy but also lu regard to thu u.-uih of such
eigslaMon as will reduce the surplus.
bo far as a revision of the tariff is concerned,
he older and mon. experienced Republican in. Hi?
rers of ths House are of the opinion that nothing
aa be done at this session through the instru
aentality of a committee packed lu thc interest
>f free trade, and governed by a mun who _
lestitute of every element of nuOSMfal leadcr
hln. Republicans all sav tbat the spirit ex
ilbited by ** Premier" Mills and his Democratic
associates in the preparation of the so-called Tariff
nd Internal Revenue bili clearly indicate, the
inpossibility of any turilf revision.
A good many men on both sides of tho House
eel that there is cot so much demand for a
"eneral revision of the tariff now a*, there is for
egislation which shall reduce tho surplus revenue.
)n the Republican sldo there is a strong and
-rowing feeling that the tax on distilled spirits
hould oe abolished, and the Republican vote for
ts abolition would be much t-tronger than for a
?eduction to fin couts per gallon m proposed la
be Randall bill, 'lite abolition of the tux on
ilcohol used In manufncttires and the mechanic
irts ls generally favored on the Republican side.
There is a strong sentiment shared by nearly
every Republican in the House, in favor of tho
repeal, or a very large reduction, of the duties
on sugar. Many Republicans favor free sugar
[*nth a compensatory bounty to American pro?
ducers and point to France and Germany ns ex?
amples of the beneficent effect of bounty legislation
on that subject. Other Republicans, who nre not j
quite ready to advocate the policy of houriti. s
express a wi ll in (.-nest to reduce the duty on sucnr
so low that it will yield annually, say,
$19,000,000, which revenue should be used to coin
pen sa to domestic BTowers. As tai tobacco, a ma?
jority of the Republicans is inclined to favor the
retention of a small tax on cigars and cicarettes
for the sake of regulating the industry and meet
Ingthe demand of organized lnbor.
The Ways end Means Committee held a se<.?,ion
to-day whioh lasted ninety seconds. It. appear"'!
that the ? Dark-Lantern*' report in favor of the
" Dark-Lantern" bill had not been (Mmpletcd.
When tlie committee odiourned, " Fremi"r" Mills
and his ossoe.iM.tes repaired to a dark room 1n the
snb-basement of the Capitol and resumed work on
the report. It was thought that hy work in:* all
night lo-nlght they would be able tts put the docu?
ment tn suoh shape that lt. would bear a public
exhibition In the committee-room tn-morrow. It
it undetrstood that members of the minority of the
committee will be pei-mirted to hear this report
read before it is submitted to the House.

Waphtnotov, March .21? Tho deliberations
over the Urgent Deficiency bill by the Conference
Committee of Congress, in which an appropria?
tion of 1175,000 is asked for "to complete the
armament of the Chicago, Boston and Atlanta,''
has unearthed tome interesting* facts and figures
relative to the law and the money appropriated
for ordnance.
On August 6 the Bureau of Ordnuncc of the
Navy secured an appropriation of fl 00,000 ? for
steel-rifled breech-loading guns, with HRhfJM
and ammunition-*; on July 17, 18?4, fouo.ooo
H for ordnance outfit of the three new steel cruis?
ers and one dispatch boat" (Chicago, etc); on
March 8, 1885, f80,000 "for the completion and
publio test of two breech-loading rifle-cannon of
the larger calibres now in course of construction
for the Navy, with carriages and ammunition for
both." On March 26, 1886, " for material for
the gun carriages for the Chicago, fl 0,000;
powdor for thc Roston, fl 2,000 (no guns yet in
jn Navy Yi
continuing work on tho armament of the Chicago
1888); for labor ar* the Washington Navy Yard,
and others, f60,000; freight and material for
arraumunt of the some, $48,1*13'. for payment of
foreign bills for armament of thc new crui_rs,
$37,294 84; to enable the Navy Department to
bay existing obligations of the Ordnance Bureau
for tbe armament of the cruisers. $88,655 16;
total, f361,863."
It will be observed that these sums were nicely
Jivided so that they would not appear lurge. On
uli* 26 another appropriation of $91,1.ii" was
made to complete tue armament of the Chicago,
Boston, Atlanta aud Dolphin. Ou August A,
1886, a further appropriation of fl.000,0ou HM
mode " toward the armament of the vessels au?
thorized by the act. of March 3, 1885" (three
orulsers, two armored vessels, two gunboats and
one torpedo-boat); also for the Miantonotnah's
armament; and "such portion of _id sum ai
may be necessary to the manufacture of such tonis
ana machinery, or the erection of such structures
as may be required for use in the manufacture of
Mich armament, or any part thereof." On Mareh
9, 1887, there was appropriated 13,128,862
? toward the armament of tho vessels authorized
by the act of March 8, 1881.; of the vessels au?
thorised by sections 1 and 2 of the act of August
8, 1886; of the unfinished monitors mentioned m
section 8 of same act, and of the Miuntouomuh."
On March 8, 1887, 84,000,000 was appropriated
"toward procuring, testing and delivering the
armor and gun steel for the vessels authorized by
section 1 of the act of August 3, 1886, and the un?
finished monitors mentioned in section 8 ol tho
same act, and the vessels authorized by this Bef?
it would seem that Congress has been very
liberal, but that the Ordnance Bureau has not
done as well as was expected. Part of the above.
it will be noticed, is for armor, but how much it
would be difficult to determine. Of the vessels
authorised by the aot of August 3, 1886, only two
on not to be built by contract, armor nnd all.
Only the two armored vessels and the monitors
are to be armored, as all of the vessels authorized
by the act of March 8, 1887, are being built by
contraot. In addition to the above special appro?
priations, there have been the re-rulnr appropria?
tions each year, amounting to between $100,000
and fl 20,000 for ordnance material. As there hat
been no new armament furnished to any nf tho
old vessels, the greater part of the " regular" ap?
propriation has gone toward the manufacture of
Kuna for the new cruisers. In B(.m<- cums th.*
words of the act making an appropriation hare
given to the Ordnance Bureau the greatest lati?
tude in expending it.
On page 230 of the last report of the Secretary
of the Navy lt is said that some of the guns for lh.*
Chicago and others " are being made by outside
parties." The fact is that the (Treater part of them
are so made instead of being made at the " famous
amateur gun foundry" at the Navy Yard here.
The ten-Inch guns of the new Charleston uri- to lie
abandoned and eight-inch guns are to lie put in
place of them because the Ordnance Bureau cannot
have the ten-inch guns in time. Finally, the
Ordnance Bureau ask for $088,3.10 under the gen?
eral estimates for the coming year, and for
$2,000,000 "toward the armament of vessels au?
thor! xed."
WAgnmroTOM, March 21.?The conferees on
the Urgent Deficiency bill have agreed upon their
report, which will be submitted to thc House by
Mr. Burnes, Chairman of the House Conferees ni
the earliest opportunity. The House recede*1 from
Its disagreement to the Senate amendment, -.trikir.x

can po-atinasters whose accouut-s bave not been
adjusted and linally settled. It ls understood that
all ex poatmasters. whose accounts hu ve not beea
settled, are to bc sued together with their bonds?
men. It seems to be the impression of the astute
Postmaster-General that he will be able tu kill
two birds with one stone. Suite, or threats of
suits, he thinks, will deter Republican ex-post?
masters and their Republican bondsmen from ex?
hibiting that pernicious activity so greatly depre?
cated in Presidont Cleveland's famous order of
July, 1886. At thc same time, the publication
of garble.' statements derived from the official
records is expected to impress, the country with
thc belief that in Dickinson a great reformer baa
at la6t been discovered.
