Senator Pugh related the facta coa
' nected with the Dmkin case, and said
that the Senate resolution did not call
lot public or ofllciat documents, but
for priva'e documents and private pa
pers relating exclusively to an official
act ol the President in the suspension
ol Dastin at District Attorney. The
inquiry proposed by the Senate was t)
be made with a knowledge cf the fact
tjhst more than bur weeks before the

the term of Lhistin had expired. Then
what possible uae could be male of

It was a pnre fiction why the report

information was wanted to enable the
Senate to diachu'ge the great duty ini

Wb it was the relation between the
President and his Cabinet officers T
Mr. Pugh would let Mr. Edmunds's
owe words answer that question.
He then quoted from one of Senator
Udmandu's speeches on t'ue tenure cf
office act, to show that Senator Ed
munds held that a Cabinet officer
st!'iu:d be a pentlmnan personally
agreeable to the 1 'resident, being one
of hia contidtmtial advisers. Vet the
ViQuie was asked to pass a resolution
condemning the AtDrney-General for

department relating to the case within
the period i!at( d in the resolution."
"There," aaid Senatir Pugh, "is a
s'ateuient made by tin President of a
niHlt-r of fict within his pereonal
knowledge, and the Senator from Ver
mont controverts the truth of that
statement, havicgno foundation what
ever for the denUL There is a sqnaro
ineue luiide in the report of tbe ma
jority if the JnJiziary Committfe
with the IVet-ident npoa matter of
fact that is within bis personal knowl
edge. Are tbees papers . called for
fioin the Attorney-General such as
this Senatt has a right to in 'the dis
charge of itadu:iea?" The President
had stated that the papers were pri
va'e and unofficial and related to noth
ing over which the Senate has juris
diction. The nxjority of the Judiciary
Committee and its distinguished chaii
man the Senator from Vermont
aaid tUt although private and unof
ficial they would enable the tienata to
discbarge a duty it bad to perform
power it claimed of revising the act
of the President in suspending George
M. Duslio as district . Attorney.
That was the undisputed basis
ol tbe claim to these private
unofficial papers. It was tbe power of
tbe Senate to exercise the same con
trol and revision after the act of a sus
pension or removal that was claimed
and l xArcised and given to tbe Ser.nte
expressly by the connotation of ad
vising and conaenting to appoint
ments. There was no mistake about
that being the, claim asserted by the
majority ol the Judiciary Committee,
and there was no mistake that the
resolution rero tsd condemned the
itli:il act of the Attnrney-liuiersl
f ;r the n avin that he had withheld,
on the order of the President, infor
mation that he stated was private-
documents and papers that he said
wore unofficial and priva'e, and with
held from the Senate no the Presi
dent's privet order first, because
they were piiva'e and unofficial, and
second, because they related to no
duty that the constitution or law lm
Dewed upon the Senate.
"Is there anything," said Senator
Pugh, "in the history of the govern
ment to support this claim r the dm
tingulshed Henator from Vermont has
presented a long array of what be culls
'nrecedenti.' 1 undertake to say and
I challenge denial upon the fullest
text that there is no case in tbe
history of the government for eight
years where any such documents as
those call oil lit in this resolution were
ever transmitted to the Senate in ex
erutlve or public session on tbe order
of the Senate upon an A torney-Uen
eral or the President. My honorable
and distinguished friend paraded in .a
manner that indicated that he was
about to achieve a great triumph over
the I remdont in tho production of i
letter sent from the Judiciary Coin
raittee and signed by Allen U. Tlinr-
mau as its chairman to the Attorney'
General. 1 indorse all that the Senator
has so well said about Allen G. Thur
man. Ye, Mr. President, Allan
G. Ttiurman is the greatest and the
wisettand the purest American Hit ea
rn m now living. (Applause in the
galleries whose ozcupar.t ' were
notified bv the occupant of the chair,
heDHt'jr Hoar, that any further demon
ftrations cf apnlaune would remilt in
the galleries being cleared.) I was
surprised that the great Senator from
Vermont, in this great law-making
department of the government should
evoke the name and fane and author
ity of that great statesman to sustain
the claim now made on the Attorney'
General for Uioee documents.
What had Senator Thurman said on
the floor of the Hanate in relation to
this power of removal ?
Senator Pugh read from Senator
Thurman s speeches on the debate in
tbe tenure of office act, in which he
expressed the convictions that tho
power of removal was an executive
power exclusively residing in the
President alone, vet tbe Senator from
Vermont invoked an order signed by
Senator Thurman as chairman of the
Jadiciary Commit toe, addressed to tbe
Attorney-General, which Senator
Pugh would read to the Senate.
Senator Pugh then read the letter
which was rend yesterday by Senator
Edmunds, calling lor papers bearing
on tbe removal of Judge Shaffer of the
Territory of Utah.
"That person," Kanator Pugh said.
had been judge cf a Territorial court.
and in the prevision conferring the
power of suspension on the President
there was an express exception of
judge of the United States. The
question was whether Territorial
jndises wore embraced in that lan
guage. The Senator fiom Vermont
knew that unettlon was now before
the Judiciary Committee. He knew
that the great Senator and jurist from
New i ork (Senator hvarta) was a
maoiber of that subcommittee, with
tbe splendid lawyer, Senator Jackson,
from lenness:e, and that after thnt
two weeks or more of consideration
they had made ne report on that ques
tion submitted to them of the power
ot the President in vacation to sus
pend a judge of a Territorial .court
The Senator irom Vermont knew that
the Sanator from New York (Mr.
Kvarle) had expressed the opinion
that these Territorial judges were
not subject to the power of suspension
by the President. That was, to-day,
an open question before the very
committee of which the honorable
Senator was chairman, and, with a
declaration by one of the most dis
tinguished, lawyers that ornamented
the judiciary of the country, declar
ing it to be bis opinion that the power
ol suspension given tbe President in
section 1708 of the Revised Statutes,
did not apply to Territorial judges.
Then why was it that Senator Thur
man, as chairman of the Judiciary
Committee, sent that order or request
to the Attorney-General? He sent it
under section 1 707, making them sub
ject to nm aval, but only by and with
the advice and consent of the Senate.
There was the predicate for the ordet
of Chairman Thurman upon the Attorney-General
to send in all informa
tion and papers relating to the re
moval, not to the suspension.
Senator Pugh here read section 1707,
and continued: Under that section the
tower of removal was to be exercised
y and with the advice and consent of
the Senate. It was in obedience to the
provisions of that section that the or
der was sent by Chairman Thurman
to the Attorney-General, calling for
information in reference to a removal
that required the a Ivice and consent
of the Senate, just as in the case of an
Senator Pugh had Henator Walthall
read for him a speech of Senator
Spiaue in the Sena'e, in the debate
on the tenure of cilice bill.
A c;otul statement of the question
beieinvolved,Siriutor Pugheaid.which
statement wn known to have been
written by Chid Justice Chase, ex
precaing t tie conviction that the only
fiinctinn of the Senate in the canes in
volved in the discussion was moro'y
one of aasent or disfert, and strongly
controverting the point that the func
tion of removal was a leg elative one.
He (fii'of l'oghl boldly challeugfid
reply to that paper. Now, he con-
cued. 1st it hn tnitt that this was not
a substantial executive power vested
by tbe constitution in the President
a'oce; let it be true that like power of
appointment the Senate should Lave
wito the l'reeident the pwr ol re
moval; let it be true ti nt tbe power
of removal was a legitdutive power and
not an executive power and that the
entire regulation of it belonged alone
to Congress under the constitution.
Let all that be true, he would now call
the attention of tbe expediency and
practicability of such a power being
exercised by the Senate.
tie read from the report oi me
minority, as bearing npoa the point,
portion of an ex'ract from the mes
sage of President Grant in lbliil, calling
attention to tbeembanaismeiits likely
to arise fiom leaving on the statute
books tbe tenure ol cmce act. ana
asking what faith the President conld
put in subordinates forced upon bim,
and how such officio's would be likely
to serve an administration knowing
tbat it bad no faith in them.
In conclusion Senator Pugh said bis
obj ict had been to define tbe char
acter cf tbe conflict of authority be
tween the President and the Senate,
and to fortify the view that had always
been tiken by tbe JJemocrtio party,
and to fortify it by authorities. Mr.
Cleveland had no fear of an appeal to
the people. llesnpp:sed the majority
in the Senate bad no tear ol appeal
ing to the people in favor of the om
nipotence ol tne banato. ne anew
fie minority bad none in appealing
to the omnipotence cf the constitution
and the integrity cf Mr. Cleveland's
Senator Wilson Ia. I was rocognizad
by the Chair, but upon the snggei tion
of Senator Allisor, consented to per
mit the pending business to ba tem
porarily laid aside until to-morrow in
order that the Senate might proceed
to consider tbe nrgent deQcioncy bill,
which was then tiken up by the
committee and au appropriation was
agreed to, appiopriating J0,000 to
defray the expenses of Gen. Grant's
The item of Sl&i.OCO deficiency in
the Department of Justice gave rise to
some debate.
Senators Edmunds, Inga'ls and
Plumb commented on the fact that
the deficiency was greater than nnder
Republican adminut'stion, and Sena
tors Voorbees, Deck, Uockreii and Call
defended the present adminittration,
and insisted that extraordinary ex
penditures were necessary in connec
tion with the execution ot the laws in
Senator Teller said the reason why
deficiency bills came before Congress
at ell was because Longrera did not do
its duty in making appropriations in
tha til st place.
Senator Ktlmundsra'd be had heard
many of the new district attorneys had
in their xeal for "reform" brought
suits without sufficient foundations,
and tbat hed probably increased tbe
Senator Beck wanted the bill held
over till to-morrow so that he might
look into it, but a inaj ority of Senators

Naw Yoke, March 10. The ,SW
Washington special says: "Mr. Ed
munds's opening speech yesterday in
tbe controversy between the Senate
and the executive was one of his
greatest efforts. He bad two or three
months In which to prepare it, and it
was a most complete presentation oi
his side ot the case. He piled prece
dent upon precedent tat the Democrats
to go around and get over, one very
strong one being a case' la which hi
old friend, Allen G. Thurman, figured
as making a demand upon the Attorney-General
precisely like his own.
The round of applause with which the
crowded galleries greeted Mr. Ed-
rnnnds's complimentary illusion to
Mr. Thurman as tha noblest Democrat
he had ever known, was a remarkable
and significant demonstration. Mr.
Edmunds bad a large audience, both
in the galleries and on the floor. There
wan some comment on the fact that
while the Democratic Senators, with
half a dcxea exceptions, were atten
tive listeners, the Republicans showed
lees interest in hie speech. Gen.

Louisiana Plunter Clamoring for
Advance Otit the Present
Wabbi-voton. March 10. Tbe sugar
clauses of the Morrison tariff bill
were discusfed before the Ways and
Means Committer to-day.
IUiresentatlve K ng of Louisiana
entered a proteit against a reduction
of the import duty on sugar. Sugar,
be said, was a most important revenue
producer, and in these days of in
creasing pertijns it behooved tbe
committee to act r-lowly in changing
tbe duty. It would be better, in hia
oi inion, and from a revenue stand
point, to remove duties oa tbe neces
saries of lif , such as clothing, shoes,
nails and blankets, from a protective
point of view, be also favored tbe im
position ot duty on sugar. Mr. King
Wunced the course of coffee before
and f er tbe removal cf dutv as prob
ably foreshadowing tbe enect of a
similar a. tion in tun case of sugar.
There was great danger that the
United States, bv removing the duty
on engar, would foster monopolies
John Diamond of New Orleans said
the Biner industry lad riuen ttiadiiy
from the wreck hi by tbe war, show
ing in five yeaia an increase of 800
per cent , under duty averaging 3c.
per pound. Wben the duty was re
duced in 1870, aad the Louisiai a
planters werej .rr.ed to compete with
foreign slave labor, tbe industry was
paralyzed. The present rate of duty
did not equal tha difference in cot
between American free labor and
slave labor. The pie titer had also to
compete with German and French
beet sugars protected by government
bounties. 'J'Iiosa sugars were now
coming to the United States. The
liavtai an free sugar was abo destroy
ing the local markets. Tbe treaty
should be terminated. The govern
ment bad lost $23,000,OCO of revenue
without adequate com penoation. The
adoption of tno Mexican reciprocity
treaty would be (till more duaitrons
in its effect npon the sugar planter.
If a competition was forced with Cen
tral and Sooth America it meant a re
duction of wages in this country.
Without fertilizer and great capaci y
for sorghum and beet sugar produc
tion this country could eusily supply
our whole consumption, and legisla
tion could do for the United Suts
what it had done for the beet sugar
industry of hmope. the Louisiana
planters not only protested against a
reduction of outy, but request nu ad
vance over the present rate.
