WASHINGTON*, June 29.?A pror?.
dent that will be historic was est ab
IIshed by the Senate at Its session in
day. For probably the first time in tin
history of the Senate a resolution was
adopted tendering the thanks of C 'n
Kress to common seamen, specifics 11 \
namlne: them in the resolution. Th<
resolution elicited se\-eral patriotii
speeches in which the pri%-ate soldier
of the army and the common sailor
of the navy were glowingly eulogized
The resolutions recommended by itv
President were adopted, tendering tin
thanks of Congress to Naval Constrtc
tor Hobson and the other heroes of th<
Merrimae and to Lieutenant Frank 3-1
Newcomb, commander of th? rcvenu'
cutt?r TTr-epon. for his gallant rescu<
of the Winslow and her crew off Oar
denas: and retiring on full pav Captain
Hodgsdon. of the MrCullorh. for dis?
tinguished services at Manila. The
transfer of Hobson from the construe
tlon corps of the navy to the lino was
also provided for.
Consideration of the general deficien?
cy bill was concluded and the measure
was passed. An amendment of great
Importance was attached to the bill,
practically by general consent. It re?
lates to tin. settlement of the claims of
the government against the Pacific rail?
roads. It was offered by Mr. Morgan
of Alabama, who made a strong appeal
to the Senate for its adoption. Before
It was agreed to. Mr. White, of Califor?
nia, proposed some amendments to It.
making it even more binding upon tIn?
roads than it was In Its original form
The amendment in full follows:
?'That the secretary of the treasury,
the secretary of the interior and t to'
attorney general and their successors in
office, 1,,.. and they are hereby appoint?
ed a commission with full power to
settle the Indebtedness to the govern?
ment growing out of the issue of bonds
on account of the construction of the
Central Pacific and Western Pacific
bond-aided railroads, upon such terms
and in such mariner as may be agreed
upon by them, or by a majority of
them, atid the owners of said railroads.
Provided: That any and all settlements
thus made shall be submitted in writ?
ing to the President for bis approval
or disapproval, and unless approved by
him shall not be binding.
"That said commission shall ion
agree to accept a less sum In settlement
of the amount due the TTnlted States

WASHINGTON. June 2!).?The Hons -
today disposed of a number of meas?
ures and incidentally enjoved a spoerh
from Mr. Allen, of Mississippi, which
precipitated a political episode in which
Mr. Orosvenor. of Ohio, and Mr. Bailey,
of Texas, figured as the principals.
Mr. Allen proposed that a company of
Congressman be raised and go to Cuba
After sanding the rndlan and sundry
civil bills back to conference, consid?
eration of bills from the military af?
fairs committee, under the rule adopted
yesterday, proceeded. Notable among
the measures passed were those pro?
viding for the enlistment of cooks In
the army: providing for the protection
of harbor defenses arid fortifications
against wanton and malicious Injury,
and giving the secretary of war discre?
tion to permit any church or religions
sect to erect its house of worship
upon the West Point military reserva?
tion. The last named bill precipitated
considerable discussion. The bill In
add cheese and canned corn to the ar?
my ration occasioned prolonged debate,
and it was during its consideration that
Mr. Allen spoke, and the Grosvennr
Balley incident look place. Mr. Allen,
criticizing and replying to a feature of
the Ohio member's Ohio convention
speech, in which the latter referred to
the minority as universally opposed to
war measures. caused Mr. Orosvenor
to answer, lie contended that his
speech was Justified by the facts an.I
proceedings, declared he was no more
amenable to criticism than were Dem?
ocratic authorities, in this connection
he read from a Washington newspaper
a Democratic organ, he said, an edi?
torial in line with his convention
speech. It contained a severe arraign?
ment of Democratic leadership, and
Mr. Orosvenor created a sensation by
declaring that it was written by a
Democratic member of the House
From that assertion sprang the inci?
dent during which demands for th*
name of the Democrat were made and
refused, anil during which Mr. Bailey
and Mr. Orosvenor indulged in pointed
personal colloquies.
The Serial!- bill providing for a sec?
ond assistant secretary of war was de?
feated?50 to fi::.
The House adjourned at r, o'clock, tic
yeas and nays having been ordered
upon an amendment offered by Mr.
Otey. of Virginia, to the bill adding
chewing and smoking tobacco to He?
rat ion of soldiers.
