United States Senator Referred to the Corn
flUte on Privilege and Elections
proposition torprlnllig 100000 copies of
be report of the Agricultural I Department on
Diseases of the Hore provoked a discus
sion In which Mr Qormnn fern Md In
veighed aeoinst extravagance In the way of
public printing and predicted that tu 1833 an
increase of taxation would be necessary to
Ilorl
BMt the expenditures ot the Government
let reply to some remarks of Mr Spooner
Hep Win In favor of the proposition Mr
Oormen was convinced that there was not a
firmer In Maryland or Wisconsin who did not
know more about the horsa than did the men
who cot UP that book He was willing that 25
000 copies should be printed aud distributed
among the farmers and not among the race
bone men
Mr Paddock ep eb1 expressed the
edition that the Committee on Printing In
amending the House resolution by reducing
the 100000 copies to 20000 had put In the knife
too deeply and that the desire for economy
would bate been better shown In striking out
an appropriation of 600000 for the ornamental
work of the Geological Survey
Mr Hawley Rep Conn advocated the re
duQtton and said that the horse race was not
an original race In America buttheeourtknew
something abut It already The House reso
lution proposed to spend tlOOOOO on the book
at a time when the expenses of the Govern
ment Printing Office had run up to three roll
lions s year
jSrCookrellDem Mol1 replying to ar
Bark of Mr Gormans an to public iloonments
being on sale nt all tie secondhand book
stores intimated that that could not be the
case without the connivance Senators and
oresntatuves
Mr Berry Dem ArkDoes the Senator In
tend to alt that any Senator eve disposes of
looks Issued to him for hU constituents to
eeoondbana book titoras
Mr Cookrell am not making that charge
Ir these books came from the quotas of Sen
ators and Representatives and they cannot
com from any other place
cm Berry aJ the Senator knows of any Sen
ator or Itepresenmtlve wbo has done such a
thing I hope he will make It Ione
tlna Cockrell If the benator from Arkansas
ulll inquire at the Senate document room
whether all be documeo allotted to Senators
blre bn rentout by them he wilt ascertain
thelat What rorlnltncedoela Ielroln
tative from New ork cay car for bin alricll
tural report Probably he has a clerk who
tells1 him that he wants to distribute them
and he turns them over franked to this clerk
Anitao It la with many other pnbllo document
AjS BrI the Senator knows of any Sen
ator or Bepresentatlvo who does this an In
vestigation should b made and such Senator
or RprtntaUT should be expelled and any
clerk who la guilty of snob an offence should
dismissed Thechrgs II 6 orr serious onl
endilth Senator from Missouri knows any
tat of the kind the country ought to know
tem RD Ore agreed wltbJMr Berry
and would offer a resolution of Inquiry I he
was sure that secondhand bookdealers were
not of that privileged class that would decline
> answering the questions of a committee An
illusion to the correspondents who refused to
say where they got reports of doings in execu
tive sessions 1
Finally an amendment offered by Mr Harris
fixing the number or copies at 60000 was
agreedd to yeas 42 nays 14
Idd tnu Coon ottered a resolution
which was referred to the Committee on Contingent
tingent Expense authorizing the Committee
on Territories to visit Alaska during there
tens and Inquire Into Its resources and as to
its need of a more efficient system of govern
or power to employ I clerk and stenog
rapher and to send for persons and papers
raJher Morgan IDem Ala mae a personal
v statement In connection with a Washington
despatch to the St Louis Jirpitllir command
log Mr Vets speech In opposition to the
Nicaragua 1 Canal bill and stating that It WHS
difficult to nee how nnv ruasonably sane and
4 reasonably hone man could support tbo
v measure There wan no objection Mr Morgan
leuure certain criticism being nmdf on on
vat account but the parson wbo made It had
the privilege of the floor of the Senate through
the Indulgence of a Democratic Senator he
visited the cloak rooms and hud access to Sen
ators In such a way as to gke perhaps a pecu
liar degree of authentlcliylto his accusation
lu dishonesty against tfenutTs who advocated
the Nicaragua Canal bill The Committee on
ionia Relations had not nppoed that It
was exposing luelf to thu criticism of news
VSMr correspondents who by the courtesy of
Senators had access to the floor Pressure of
that sort he said might come from outside of
tiie Senate It It would hut when it cain from
MnonH enjoying the hospitality of the Senate
t Was tome hint that he did nut feel disposed
to put up with tie had now called the atten
lion of be Senate to I and would take action
later on unless tho maier was corrode1
IllD VesUIJem Jlo thought that the Sena
tor from Alabama was unduly sensitive about
that neMpHp article The heading of It
calling the bill a vropOKcd steal was ore
pared not by Mr Moore the correspondent
Cat In tbe ohlce of thc IttpuWa and lie was
assured that Mr Moore never Intended to
charge any Senator with being actuated by
corrupt or improper motives He hud not the
slightest dlQTculty In saying that he believed
that the correspondent did toxaKiierate his
argument but that woi simply a question oi
opinion and judgment I Senntorswore to
notice such newspaper statements tbey might
nOt I dismiss another business
l1e Morgan said that ho bail called uptime
inbject not because a correspondent chose to
criticise the motives of fcenaturs but he ob
jected to any man having OCCMH to the floor
J00r
who made It his business to libel Senator by
the assertion trot they were neither honest nor
sane ome That was getting a little too closely
After remarks by Mr Iteaeanttho subject was
permitted to lapso and the tienato went Into
executive session
After the doors were reopened the Senate
proceeded to the coi > deration of time bundrr

B ntatlv s aad Cabinet offlesrs as being hostile
lo the Civil Service law I The Commissioner
in said had gone beyond the bounds or pro
priety when they attempted In public met pr
ings and in newspaper articles furnished by
heir clerks to denounce Senators and mom
Dens of Congress anti Cabinet ministers It
wns Mmply an outrage and a piece of audacity
The trouble with the Commissioners grew out
ot their want or ability to entered the law In a
practical and lair way
Mr Vest said that there was A vast amount
of humbug In connection with the Civil ser
vlroluiv 1 had some itood features which
md been mngn led and some monstrous do
feels which hid born mlnlmizoii In some of
the departments It has operated well and In
thers It hud been a sham nud a fraud and he
houcht that that va becoming the opinion
01 the Intulllgant portion or the American
eople Couuross ho thought ought to logic
Into directly tutU from this tliuo forward civil
service ornmlnntlona should not bo roqiilied
for the Bureau of the chlUct of the Treasury
Mr Cockroll said that Instond of oxoLUtlie
Oiileers coming to Congress nnd asking It to
override tho Civil Hervlco low they should go
tl the Ilnnldeni nnd ask him to withdraw the
Executive order placing RICh ofllcoH under tho

Mr AlllKon said that be had not examined

Mr Inealls Then why not so n not to In

Mr AlllBon I certainly have no objection
Mr IncallTlmt being tho case I would not

appears to be ami perhaps tu Intllct mortal I
Injury on tbe republic I should prefer very
much If tho Kxpcuth bno any doubt as to his
power In tho matter to Insert a provision to
confer that Authority upon him
Mr lUlmumUdtpp Vtl Tbora Is no doubt
but that he tins authority to change an execu

t Mr Incalls Then certainly the Executive
would be willing to exercise the responsibility
of Kcrinltting this temporary employment
raker than allow enterprises of great pith
Unit moment to go awry by reason of adher

Mr SpooncrMy statement was that the
matter required either hxecutlvo action or
Congressional action
Mr Uorman suggested that tbe Commission
ers should bo men of common sense and wild
tbat the iresldont had not rebuked the Com
missioners nor their letter denouncing the
IostmasierUeneral
Mr Cookrell reminded Mr Oorman of tbe
reprimand which according to the Washing
ton lime f the 1resldent bad given to the
commissioner That paper he said bad had
hardly anything else In It forseveral days than
that reprimand
Mr Teller Hop Col asked Mr Cockrell
whether be was confident that the occurrence
related in the fast look place
Mr Cockrell supposed that tbe fait had
spoken authoritatively and by tbe card
Mr Uorman Informed Mr car there
never had been curb an Interview adding that
the President would not dare to reprimand the
Commissioner for lecturing time Fostumaster
leneral It was the first time he said In the
leotral wal Irlt tme
history of the Government that three subord
inate officers had Indicted through the public
prints one of the great Cabinet ofllcers of the
Government and had had tbe audacity to ad
dress thelrcommnulcatlon tn the President of
tbo United States In ordinary times they
would have been removed and better len
wonld have been put in their places

Mr Blackburn Dem Ky I justified It as an
expression of the gratitude of Congress to the
daughters of a man wbo had rendered con
spicuous services without fee reward He
was only amazed at the smallness of the
amount
Tbe amendment was agreed to Mr Berry re
