AT THE CAPITAL.
The Senate Passes the Sun dry Civil Bill. Some of Its Provisions Warmly Discussed. The Santa Monica Soldiers' Home Appropriation Increased. In the House the "Original Package" Bill Holds the Boards—Bond Propo sals Invited. Associated Press Dispatches I Washington, July 19. —In the senate today Frye, from the select committee on Pacific railroads, reported back the senate bill authorizing the secretary of the treasury to settle the indebtedness to the government of the Sioux City and Pacific railroad. The senate resumed consideration on the sundry civil bill. Among the amendments reported by the committee on appropriations ami agreed to by the senate, was the follow ing: Inserting an appropriation for the construction of buildings and enlarge ment of military post 3, from $650,000 to $800,000. In the amendment to add an appro priation of $400,000 for artificial limbs, or commutation therefor, the words "and in cases of commutation the money shall be paid directly to the soldier, sailor or marine, and no fee or com pensation shall be allowed or paid to any agent or attorney," was made the text of a statement by Cockrell, to the effect that it had been the practice of the various departments not to inform cred itors of the fact that money is due to them, and that the practice encouraged the increase of claim agents. Cockrell insisted that it is the duty of the gov ernment whenever its records show an indebtedness to any person, soldier or citizen, to hunt that person up and pay him. The amendment was finally agreed to. The following amendments were agreed to: Inserting the item of $18,900 for ord nance and ordnance stores to be issued to the state of Washington, in place of ordnance borrowed from the territory of Washington, by the state of Oregon. Increasing the appropriation for the maintenance of the soldiers home at Santa Monica, California, from $90,000 to $117,000. An amendment was adopted increas ing the amount of the summed-up total of appropriations for all the national soldiers homes, from $2,611,700 to $2, --686,000. In the amendment to add to the para graph as to the appointment of man agers of the national soldiers homes, the word: "'And William B. Franklin of Connecticut, Thomas W. Hyde of Maine, John C. Black of Illinois, and George W. Steel of Indiana, for terms of offices commencing April 21, 1890, to fill vacancies occasioned by expirations of terms of office and by increase provided hereby," gave rise to along discussion. Plumb said hereafter he should not vote to continue any manager in the board any longer than one term of six years. He believed in the renovation of the board. The management of the national homes was not as wise, conser vative or economical as it should be. Allison presented for Haley an amend ment proposing the name of Lewis B. Gunckel, of Ohio, in place of General Harris, who recently died. Sherman suggested the name of S. S. Voder, in place of Steel, who has been appointed governor of Oklahoma. After further discussion the amend ment was agreed to, modified by the in sertion of the names of Gunckel and Voder. The paragraph now appoints a3 man agers of the national homes: Edmund N. Morrill, of Kansas, for the unexpired term of John A. Martin, deceased; Al fred L. Pearson, of Pennsylvania, for the unexpired term of John F. Hartranft, deceased; Lewis B. Gunckel, of Ohio, for the unexpired term of L. N. Harris, deceased; Wm. ]?. Franklin, of Con necticut, Thos. W. Hyde, of Maine; John C. Black, of Illinois, and Samuel Voder, of Ohio. The amendment appropriating $4,000 for aid to the Industrial Christian Home Association in Utah (which was estab lished for the protection of Mormon women desiring to escape from polyg amy), provoked a long discussion. Cockrell said it never had had more than twenty inmates. Edmunds admitted that not many Mormon women took advantage of the home, but it was an open invitation to them. Vest said the government had appro priated $50,000 for the home, and con gress was now asked to appropriate $4,000 a year for no other purpose than to pay the salaries of a lot of people who had managed to obtain the appropriation under the pretense oi philanthropy. It was a noto rious fact, he said, that the women of Utah were more opposed to doing away with polygamy than the men. This arose not from sensuality or from any degraded feeling, hut from religious sentiment. Senator Pomeroy had had an idea that suffrage ought to be given to the women of Utah, so they could es cape from polygamy. They got it, and every one of them voted the polygamist ticket. Edmunds admitted that the women of Utah voted tliat way, but it was on the same principle that colored men voted the Democratic ticket —probably from religious enthusiasm. In the course of the discussion Vest resented the drift of some remarks of Edmunds as to his (Vest's) uniform op position to anti-Mormon legislation. He said he was as much opposed to polyg amy as anyone, but he thought there was a line beyond which he would not go. Plumb expressed tbe opinion that the home was an utter failure, and said he had found that to be the general view in Salt Lake. Edmunds intimated that the senator rom Kansas, like other righteous men who had gone into strange places, had fallen among persons who did not tell all the truth. He knew there was oppo sition to the home in Salt Lake, because tho property was wanted for specula tion. This led to a warm personal colloquy between Edmunds and Plumb, which lasted some time. The amendment was finally agreed to, as was also one inserting an item for the payment of $8,745 to the widow of the late Chief Justice Waite, the balance of his year's salary The amendnii nt a? to the proposed Latin-Arnerku, memorial library was TIIE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 20, IBdo. amended aa proposed by Hawley, by striking out the provision for a budding to cost $500,000, and by substituting a provision for a section of the library of congress, and appropriating $25,000 for its outfit. After the adoption of some further amendments, the bill was reported to the- senate, anil all the amendments agreed to in committee of the whole were agreed to in bulk, except those as to the irrigation survey. The discus sion on the irrigation question occupied several hours, and then the amendments were agreed to and the bill passed. The tariff bill was taken up as unfin ished business, and Aldrich gave notice that he would move to take it up at 2 o'clock on Monday. The senate then, at 8:45 p. nr., adjourned. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. The "Original Package" Debate Goos Merrily On. Washington, July 19. —In the house today Mcßae of Arkansas, introduced a joint resolution directing the secretary of the interior to suspend the issue of patents for lands to the Union Pacific until the adjustment of the debt due the United States from said company, and authorizing the attorney-general to insti tute such legal proceedings as may be in his opinion necessary to subject the lands granted to and held by said com pany, to the payment of the debt due the United States. Referred to the com mittee on public 1 amis. Holman introduced a resolution call ing upon the secretary of the interior for a statement of the amount of land patented or certified to in each of the land grants to the Union Pacific system, and requesting him to suspend the issue of patents and certificates, pending the further action of congress. Henderson, of lowa, from the com mittee on appropriations, reported to the house the general deficiency appro priation bill, the last of the regular' ap propriation bills. The house resumed consideration of the original package bill. Thompson, of Ohio, said that it was contended that the bill would violate the constitution, and that it was an at tempt to delegate to a state the power conferred upon congress. He did not so understand it. He regarded it as a sim ple regulation of commerce. The exer cise of the power of congress to regulate commerce among the states was not the delegation of that power. It did not in terfere with interstate commerce, but provided that an article imported into a state, when offered for sale, should be come subject to the laws of that state. Lehlbach, of New Jersey, said in temperance had never been "rooted out by legislation. From his own personal ooservation he was satisfied that in temperance was on the decline. This was largely due to the use of that mild beverage—beer. To the prohibitionist fanatics, however, this was the most de tested of all stimulants. He believed that the substitute proposed by Adams would meet the requirements. There was one sure way in which the people of Kansas and lowa could get rid of the original package stores, and that was not to patronize them. Hayes, of lowa, opposed the legisla tion, preferring a little liberty to a good deal of sentimental state rights. He contended that the prohibitory law of lowa was not enforced, and he denied (from an observance made on a recent visit to his state), that there were orig inal package saloons in lowa, at least be had not seen one, nor had he beard of one being there until he returned to Washington.' Perkins, of Kansas, believed in the constitutionality and propriety of the proposed legislation. This was not a question of prohibition or high or low license ; it was a question whether the people in their state organizations had a right to protect their homes, fire sides and families from unlicensed, un restrained and unrestricted rum traffic. At present the original package decision might atfect prohibition states alone, but in a little time all the states would be infested by lawless characters who kept original package stores, and the lo cal option laws would be violated. There ought not to be a vote cast against the proposed legislation. After further debate the house took a recess, the evening session to be for de bate only. At tbe evening session a number of brief addresses were made, and the house at 10 :o0 adjourned. bond ritorosAts. The Accumulating Surplus Must Needs Bo Keduced. Washington, July 10. —Secretary Win dom issued a circular this afternoon that on Thursday, July 24th, proposals will be received in the office of the sec retary of the treasury for sale to the government of the United States bonds of the act of July 14, 1870, and January 20,1871, for the purpose of supplying in part the requirement of the sinking fund for the current fiscal year. The circular of April 17, 18S8, under which daily purchases of bonds had heretofore been made, is rescinded. In explanation, Secretary Windom says: "Owing to the recent light offer ings of bonds, the surplus has rapidly accumulated until now it is in round figures $50,000,000, exclusive of $25,000, --000 fractional silver coin. The recent act of congress transferring $55,000,000 from the fund for the redemption of na tional bank notes, makes a large portion of this fund also available for the redemption of bonds. The depart ment is therefore in a position to retire a considerable amount of interest-bearing obligations of the government, and the advertisement issued today is simply in tended to invite bondholders to name the price at which they are willing to sell to the government. The amount taken will depend largely upon the prices at which offered." A Mail Steamer Grounded. Washington, July 19. —Lieutenant- Commander O. W. Parenholt, command ing the United States steamer Pinta, in a dispatch to the navy department, dated July 4th, at Sitka, Alaska, says: The mail steamer George W. Elder ran aground in Whitestone narrows, a dangerous and intricate passage, four teen miles off Sitka. She had on board several hundred Alaskan tourists. The Pinta went to her rescue and succeeded in towing her into deep water. She subsequently went to Sitka. An offer to convey the Elder to Port Townsend, Wash., was declined with thanks, the captain promising that he would go back by the inside passage and beach the vessel in case of danger. Twice Mrs. Fargo. Buffalo, N. V., July ID.—Mrs. F. F. Fargo died this morning after an illness of long duration. The deceased was the widow of the late William G. Fargo, the well-known express manager. Some years ago she married F. F. Fargo (no relation to her former husband), at one time well known in California politics.

I San Francisco, July 19.—The steam ship China arrived today, twenty-three days from Hongkong and thirteen days from Yokohama. Chinese advices give the particulars of the loss of the steamship Tang-Tsze on Saddle island, one of the Hieshan group, June 13th. The vessel, which belonged to Siemssen &Co., left Kong kong June 11th for Shanghai, with a cargo of baled yarn, opium, and $100,000 in treasure, carrying also Captain Tan ningsen, twenty-eight passengers, and seventy-eight souls, all told. The vessel soon ran into a thick bank of fog, which continued all day. About 5 o'clock breakers were seen ahead, but the ves sel's speed could not be checked, and she ran full ashore, staving in her bot tom. Part of those on board succeeded in landing that night, and the others swam to land next morning, The cast aways were well treated by the island ers, and were taken olf next morning by the steamship Oanfa. All the mails and a portion of the cargo were lost, but an effort is being made to save the re mainder. The vessel is a total loss. Zelindo Barrodas, formerly superin tendent of the money order department of the Hongkong general postoftiee, was brought to Hongkong from Manila, June 23d, under extradition papers, and charged with having appropriated vari ous sums, aggregating $46,000, between January Ist and March 22, 1890. He was held for trial. The force sent to Seoul, Corea, by the United States steamer Swatara, was ex pected to return to Chemulpo, June 14th. A passenger boat plying between Hongkong and Tai Kok Tsui sank dur ing a squall, June 20th, and seven per sons were drowned. The Spanish squadron, comprising the Castilla Ullsa and Juan de Austria, ar rived at Manila June 17th. The Portuguese and Chinese are in a disturbed state over the question of the boundary line between their possessions at Green island. Several Chinese war junks anchored in Macao waters, but the Portuguese gunboat Rio Lima made them move to neutral waters. Commis sioner llippisley, in charge of the Tappa station, is endeavoring to pacify the bel ligerents. Chinese papers state that certain rich merchants of Tien-Tsln have petitioned in favor of the extension of the Tien- Tsin railway to Tung Chow, offering to subscribe the necessary capital. It is also thought that certain financial facili ties, if granted the existing railway, will enable it to extend its line north ward to Shang-Hai and Kwam. The project is favored by the government for frontier defense purposes. A disastrous fire occurred in Tokio, Japan, June 21st, destroying about one thousand houses and rendering many people destitute. In the United States consular court at Kobe, Japan, John Riley and Henry Green were sentenced June 25th, to five years' imprisonment for setting fire to the American ship John Currier, June 10th, which fire was extinguished in time to save the lives of twenty-four persons. A collision between steamers ofMhe Osaka Merchant Steamship Company and the YumamatoCompany,at Jizozki, June 20th, resulted in the loss oi the latter company's vessel, and fourteen lives. The captain of the vessel which was overturned at Osaka, causing the loss of fifty-five lives, has been held for man slaughter. MORMON PROPERTY. Its Application to the Common School Fund Opposed. Washington, July 10.— The house ju diciary committee listened to argument by Judge James O. Broadhead of St. Louis, in opposition to the sen ate bill providing for the appli cation of the forfeited Mormon church funds to the support of common schools in Utah. Judge Broad head's contention was that the bill was in violation of the general law respect ing charities, inasmuch as it proposed to divert from its legitimate purposes moneys subscribed in aid of certain charities connected directly with a specific denomination. He held that although certain of these charities had been held illegal, yet there were others among those specified as such, as the support of Mormon schools, which could legally receive the funds. As the property was now in the hands of a re ceiver, he held that the passage of the bill was unnecessary, and would pre judge the final decision of the court. NAPHTHA SEIZED. A Portion of the IU-Fated Tioga's Cargo Confiscated. Chicago, July 19.—The United States authorities this afternoon seized 250 barrels of Naphtha belonging to the Gennessee Oil Company, of Buffalo, shipped here on the steamer Tioga. The seizure was made because of the viola tion of tho law regarding the shipping of the fluid by steamer. The statute under which the seizure was made provides for the sale of the oil, the sum derived therefrom to be appropriated by Uncle Sam. The section also provides for criminal prosecution. Narrow Escape From an Iceberg. Philadelphia, July Hi.—The Allan steamer Hibernian arrived yesterday from Glasgow. She had a narrow escape from being dushed to pieces on an ice berg. The vessel ran through the fog with her speed reduced to five knots, and but for this would have been lost. As it was, she careened to one side till the sails touched die water.

Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) cured my little boy of hereditary scrofula, which broke out all over his face. For a year he had suffered, and I had given up all hopes of his recovery, when at length I decided to use S. S. S. Af ter using a few bottles he was entirely cured. Not a symptom now remains of the disease. This was three years ago. UKS. T. L. MATHERS, Mathersville, Mies. In the early part of last year I had a vio lent attack of rheumatism, from which I was confined to my bed for over three months and at times was unable to turn myself in bed, or even raise the cover. A nurse had to be in constant attendance day and night. I was so feeble that what little nourishment I took had to be given mo with a spoon. Af ter calling in the best local physicians, and trying all other medicines without receiving any benefit, I was induced by friends to try Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) I discontinued afl other medicines, and took a course of S. S. S, thirteen small bottles, which affected a com plete and permanent cure. L. C. BASSET, El Dorado, Kansas.
