ICousc of Hepresentatives*
A LIVELY DEBATE ON THE ADJOURNMENT QUESTIONMr.
II;scock, chairman of the committee on appropriations,
reported back in the House to-day
the "Anderson" adjournment resolution with an
amendment providing for final adjournment at
noon of Saturday next.
Mr. Kasson precipitated a lively discussion upon
the House by requesting Mr. Hlscock to allow the
resolution to lie over for the present, for the reason
that?
"No; not much," Interjected Mr. Anderson.
Mr. Kasson (sarcastically)?I am asking the gentleman
rroiu New York (continuing), for the reason
that I am informed that there is to be an
attempt made In the Senate to-day to take up and
act upon the tax reduction bill; and I submit
that the importance or the measure, at least, justifies
us In waiting until we learn what the Senate
has done.
Mr. Hiscoek replied that if the Senate was disposed
In good lalth to act upon the tax bill 11
could postpone, of Its own motion, the day or adjournment
to a time which would enable it to consider
the measure. He wished to Inform the
Senate that Congress could adjourn at 12 o'clock
Saturday, so far as the appropriation bills were
concerned.
Mr. Kasson suggested that It was peculiarly the
province of the House of Representatives to act
upon the question ot taxation, and for the House
t<> turn over that responsibility to the Senate,
intimating that it was willing to adjourn without
waiting ior a reduction of taxes, was an abdication
of the particular functions or the House.
Mr. Hlscock said that no member o; the House
j had been more earnest than he to obtain legisla!
tton on the subject or revenue taxes; but the point
had been reached where it seemed to him that the
Senate was Indisposed to act in that direction.
The House should force the question or immediate
action on the Senate. He b dleved that Congress
had discharged its duty to tiie people by continuing
in session up to this late day for the purpose,
and for the sole purpose, or obtaining legislation
on tiie subject or taxation.
Mr. Cox, or N. Y. (a member of the appropriations
committee), said that he had been in favor
of passing a resolution for adjournment on Friday
for the purpose of spurring up the Senate. The !
gentleman irotn Iowa had stated that the Senate I
\\ ould take up the tax bill. It seemed to him (Mr. j
Cox) tli a it would be the ultimate 'ooltshness or
If gelation to talk about that now, \ hen a republlcan
Congress had abdicated In favor of the Long i
Branch commission. It had given away Its pow- j
ers and Its rights to a commission. Then a IP tie !
pitiful bill liuil been brought in to reduce taxa- j
lion. It amounted to nothing, and everybody ,
knew th.it the Senate had no idea of taking'it up !
j for action.
Mr. Kasson.?I beg to differ from you there. My '
; authority is tiie chairman o" the committee in
charge of the bill.
Mr. Cox.?And he Is beaten every time.
Mr. Hlscock.?By your side of t iie Senat\ [Derisive
laughter and cries or "No, no," from the
democratic side.]
Mr. Cox.?By the majority of the Senate. I think
It would be wiser to adopt a resolution to adjourn
upon Friday, but inasmuch as the sundry civil appropriation
bill cannot come to tiie House to-day,
we had better have the previous question called
upon the amendment and wind up this profligate
Congress.
Mr. Hiscoek thought that the word "profligate"
came wltii very 111-iaste from the gentleman from
New York (Mr. Cox), who as a member of the committee
on appropriations had not objected to the
Erovlsious of the appropriations to any considerale
extent.
Mr. Cox.?I voted acainst item after item, and
the record will show it.
Mr. Hlscock.?I am willing to r.pneal to the gentleman's
associates.
Mr. Cox.?I appeal to the record.
Mr. Hiscoek.?I am willing to appoal to ev-jry
member of the approprl ition committee as to tiie
economy of each item contained In the appropriation
bills. 1 1
i Mr. Cox.?The gentleman feels that the $70,0"*),000
excess of the appropriations over the appropriations
of last year re<ts upon htm.
Mr. Hiscoek replied that ?43.000,000 of that
amount was tor pensions, anl $l0,0i)0,000 for carrying
out tiie services of last year. Tiie charges
had been rung before about that $70,000,000, and
his colleague knew as well as he how the excess
had hnppt n??d.
Mr. Cox insisted that the majority of the appropriation
committee being republican they h id to
take the responsibility of the excessive appropriations.
[Derisive shouts of "We'll do it," from
the republican side.]
Mr. Hlscock.?So rar as the appropriation bills
which have come from the appropriation committee
are concerned, tills side or the House is
entirely willing to take the responsibility. [ \pI
plause on the republican side.] one word in re1
gard to our having abclleted In favor or the tariff
] commission. That Is not so. This commission
i was appointed for the purpose of considerin' the
j question of customs duties. It Is not charged
with any responsibility, and has no jurisdiction
over the subject of internal revenue tax m,
which is the only subject which tiie gentleman
I from Iowa supposes may be taken up la the Senj
ate.
Mr. Randall.?I only want to say for myself, and
j for many on this side, that we would naturally
i vote for the earliest possible adjournment, but if
that side will give any reasonable assurance that
, by a moderate extension of the session we can ,-ei
cure a reduction of taxation, we are ready to
stay.
Mr. Reed.?The assurance ought to come from
j that side In the Senate. That Is what worries us.
Mr. Carlisle.?The gentleman seems to think
that the democratic minority can control the action
of the Senate.
Mr. Kasson.?Minority?
Mr. Carlisle.?Yes.
Mr. Kasson.?Is not that questionable?
j Mr. Carlisle.?The gentleman from Iowa savs
j that he has authority for the statement tlrat tiie
Senate desires to t ike up the tax bill. I feel authorlzed
to say that whenever that motion Is made
!iere will be an almost unanimous. If not entirely
un-mimous, vote on the democratic side la favor of
It. [Apprise on the democratic side.]
Mr. C irlisle then irnde allusion to tue fact that
the Senate had laid aside the fax bill In order to
proceed with t:;e naval appropriation bill, and Mr.
Kasson said that i'ds was necessitated by the fact
that democratic Senators had exhausted all the
time in speeches anl a^^ndmmts.
Mr. Carlisle contended fc^U it was the right and
duty of Senators to debate and fuiiy consider every
measure presented to them. Ha trusted that those
gentlemen dissatisfied with the pitiful reduction
of taxes made by the Ilou-e wohkl continue to
| amend the bill until some relief should have been
! ??iven to the people at large.
Mr. Reed.?Aud yet it Is a notorious fact that the
obstruction to the bill has come rrom the gentleman's
friends, [laughter on the democratic slie,]
and it has been done under the pretence of discussion;
and uuttl it was apparent that gentlemen
intended to talk thejiropoaiuon to death the naval
- f -V "v. . . v . \ U . V ' . '' '
! ~ ~
bill was not taken up. It is useless for them to
Imagine that by words and language they can
cover tlie fact notorious to the whole country, that ?
parliamentary means have been used to defeat a 4
reduction of taxes. For gentlemon to ask us to
give assurances while their own friends b!oc? the
consideration of the rnea.sure is an exhibition of
courage which would be sublime if it were not so
common on the other side, [Laughter.]
Mr. Cox.?A Keed shaking in the wind. s'
Mr. Hlscock.?The republican Senators are In tc
favor of a bill reducing Internal revenue taxes. I p
propose to advertise to tho Senate that so far as
the appropriation bills are concerned th^y can all 11
be passed between now and Saturday, and If they
propose to postpone the day of Judgment?[here tx
Mr. Hlscock was interrupted by a loud burst of 01
laughter, which, starting on the democratic side, w
spread throughout the House; while Mr. Hiscock. n
correcting himself by substituting the word "ad- t!
Journment," was advised by a voice on the demo- ji
crat'c side that "judgment'' was the proper c;
word.]
Mr. Hiscock.?I don't abandon the word. If thev tl
choose to postpone that day (renewed laughter) I tl
desire that tiiey should understand that this post- F
Eonement is for the sole purpose of considering a
ill for the reduction of internal revenue taxes. s:
Mr. Kasson asked leave to offer a resolution de- k
daring that Congress ought not to adjourn until a
bill has been passed reducing taxation. oi
Mr. Towushend objected, and then the adjourn- a
ment resolution, amended as recommended by the C!
committee on appropriations, was adopted. d
TUB GENERAL DEFICIENCY BILL.
Mr. Hlscock, from the committee of conference
on the general deficiency bill, reported that
the committee had been unable to agree upon the
point which had been in dispute,?the payment of
mileage to Senators for attendance at the extra 11
session in October last. p
Tho House then insisted upon Its disagreement, o1
and a further conference was ordered. 0
Mr. Haskell submitted the conference report on ?i
the Senate bill for the sale of a portion of the r,
Omaha Indian reservation In Nebraska, and it was n
agreed to.

A LITTLE UNPLEASANTNESS IN THE SENATE. tl
In the Senate, yesterday afternoon, Mr. Conger e
moved to adjourn, but the chair (Mr. Davis) recognized
Mr. Anthony, who urged the passage of a
printing bill. Mr. Conger protested against the
action of the chair, and Mr. Hoar declared that in f(
Ignoring Mr. Conger the presiding officer had s
boldly deprived a member or his privileges. t<
INCREASED PENSIONS. o:
The House yesterday passed the bill, reported P
; from the committee on pensions, bounty and back
j pay, to pay a pension of $37.50 each month to f(
such soldiers as have suffered amputation of the
arm at the shoulder joint. The present pension is i
i HO a month.
THE ADJOURNMENT QUESTION IN THE SENATE.
The House resolution for ainp die adjournment
on Saturday at noon was received by the Senate to- ..
I day,and the general opinion expressed by Senators ^
j was that It would be amended by inserting noon si
or next Monday; though some Senators favored v,
adopting the resolution, saying they could get n
away Saturday as easy as Monday. The legislative,
deficiency, and:uaval appropriation bills are b
still in conference, and the sundry civil will have r
to go there. L
THE CLOSING HOURS OK CONGRESS. C<
The House has passed a resolution to adjourn s'
Congress sine die at noon Saturday. There Is
reason to believe that the adjournment will take
place on that day, although the hour may be ex- tl
tended. Tiie appropriation bills are now in good a
sliapp. It is understood that the legislative bill fC
has been agreed upon lu conference, a compromise a,
h iving been reached on the disagreement for the
I transfer of the pension recorJs Horn the surgeon al
general's oflice to the office of the adjutant general. n
j It is said, too, the Senate will recede from the mile- tl
age amendment In the deticiencv bill, and will ol
provide for the payment of tiie mileage out ol' the ^
contingent rund of the Senate. This will leave ^
only the sundry civil and naval bills to be disposed s(
of, and it is thought these can be passed on T
Saturday. In anticipation or adjournment on Sat- c'
unlay, many members will leave for their homes t!
to-night and to-morrow. It is not expected there E<
win be a quorum of the House in attendance after
to-day. tl
NOTFS OF DISTRICT INTEREST.
The Senate bill providing an appropriation for J
an addition to the White House will hardly be
reached this session, it being under a load of bills
on the Speaker's table.
The House committee on public buildings and f(
grounds will not make a report at this session on ni
the proposition to erect a buiiiling for the Army w
Medical Museum.
Mr. Neal will, under the Pound rule, endeavor to
pass a bill to direct the Attorney General to in- n
quire into the legal title of one J. L. Ivldwell to st
lands along the Potomac river, contemplated to *,1
be used in the proposed reclamation oi the I'oto- "
mac II its. v
Architect Clark, of the Capitol, will, as soon as
Congress adjourns, take steps to bulid an addition ?.<
to the government asylum for the insane.
Th j Senate District committee had no meeting
to-day. They have wound up their business for
the present session. i n
Another effort was made in the House to-day to j w
pass, under the Pound rule, the bill to remit the al
special assessments on the propertv of the late !
Carlisle P. Patterson. Objections to Its con-ddera- : ,
tion were made, and It was not brought up. Mr. i 11
Neal, chairman of the District committee, stated I
he had no doubt the property had been damaged ! n
by the Improvements assessed against it and that ! P
it liad shrunk in valuo many thousand dollars. ; n
For this reason he reluctantly would favor a re mis- !
sion of the special assessment taxes only. j P
In the House yesterday afternoon there were ,
two roll-calls on a proposition to pay the Capitol "
police ono month's extra pay. It was finally P
agreed to. tl

The passage or the river and harbor bill over the
presidential veto gives assurance to the city of
Washington of the reclamation of the Potomac
flats. Just when work upon this much-needed iin- x
provement will commence is a matter of consider- lr
able speculation. In the Arst place, the money 01
will be expended under the direction of the Secre- R:
tary of War, bus he will be unable to make any -smove
until he Is officially notified by the Secretary p
of State that the bill has become a law, which will la
be done by sending him a certified copy of the V,
bill. This will not be done for a week or ten days. si
After that there will be the usual necessary orders s'
is sued an l details and requisitions made. It is P'
generally understood that Mr. S. T. Abert, United V'
States civil engineer, will oe placed in charge of ls'
the proposed work, although there will be nothing in
to u re-vent the Secretary of War from detailing q<
some one else from the corps of engineers to super- 01
vise the work. * re
PLAN OF THE IMPROVEMENT.
It is supposed that the work will be done in
accordance with the general plan recommended by M
the board of officers of the corps of engineers, con.
slstlng of Lieutenant Colonels Q. A. GUmore, Wm.
I. craighiM and C. 11. Comstock. This board rec- SI
ommendeu a plan, which combines substantially ie
the haroor and shore lines of Mr. Abert's plan r,
Horn Lisby's point to the arsenal, and the low ,

THE STAR ROUTE TRIAL.
e?timony for lite Refcncc Continued
To-day.
When the star route trial wp.s resumed this
lornlng, Mr. Henry Lyman, chief clerk of th<5
?con l Assistant Postmaster General, was called
) the stand by Mr. Wilson. He tests t1*d that the
rlvate official letter hooks of the oftlee wanted by
le defence had been missed; that he had made a
lllgent search for the books, but they could not
e found. The books were In the office for three
r four months after Mr. Brady lert the oflice. They
ere kept in the desk of the Second Assistant 1*< stlaster
GeneraL After a "cleaning up" In the oillce
ley were missed. In reply to a question from the
1 ige, the witness said the books could be easily
arried off under a man's arm.

After Mr. Totten had read further from the i
mrnal,George Adamson,a page at the Capitol,and

i the stand. He testified that he lert Mr. Brady's
nice on the 5th of October, 1880, and was not em- '
loyed there on the 2Stfi of December, 18S0, the
ay when Walsh testified he had his interview with \
ir. Bradj*. Mr. Totten then continued with the
jading from the journal. ,
At halt past twelve o'clock Mr. Totten concluded
nd a recess was ordered.
after recess
tr. Wilson presented and read petitions asking (
>r addittlonal service on the route from Bedding ,
) Alturas, California. After reading several p??- |
Itions, Mr. Wilson olTored a letter from Repre- i
entatlve Berry to Turner respecting the route,
ut it was objected to unless Identified by Mr. (
ierry, who was not present. i
Judge Wylle, remarking upon the progress of
uslness, said: "It seems to me we have been
reeplng to-day."' i
Mr. Wilson submitted and read a form of ncjptance
in use at the star route letting of 1678. to I
low the instructions therein given to contractors, i
bcell's boomerang testimony. 1
There appeared to be a general Impression about ;
le court-house to-day that the defence had made
serious mistake in putting Buell on the stanJ,
>r the disclosures he made under Mr. Merrick's 1
marching cross-examination were quite as damping
as Walsh's uncontradicted testimony. The
latter has, it is understood, caused discord among
le defendants and their counsel, who accuse
ne another of responsibility for the blunder. <
[r. Ingersoll called Buell to the stand, but, it is .
iated, did so in accordance with a general under- ,
andlng. still he was blamed for the outcome,
his morning Mr. Ingersoll did not appear In <
iurt, but strode for awhile up and down the por- i
co and terrace outs-1 le. There was apparently
)me coolness among the lawyers. One of the
mnsei for thv government said some time ago ;
lat the time would come when the defendants i
ould have to separate, and it appears that Bueli s i
?stlmony was a heavy blow on the wedge that is 1
