Washington, Jan'y 4, 1880,
8enalor Edmunds, in presenting a peti
tion from the Woman' Relief Board of
Bait Lake city, remonstrating against any
actio of Congress looking to the admission
of Utah a a Slate, took occasion to state
thatbe wis bappy to say ibat there was
not much danger of any such action at
tb'a session. All good citizens can heart!
ly y i aen to this sentiment, and, In ad.
dltlon, I will take tbe liberty ot express
ing the hope that no such action shall ever
be taken until pnllgamy shall have been
"really and truly," as the children say,
abolished In tint Territory.
Senator Hoar ha presented a petition
asking that disfranchisement ou account
of sex he prohibited.
Senator Sherman has presented a petl
lion from the National Board of Trade
asking that tbe purchase of silver bullion
and tbe coinage of silver dollars by the
roverament be suspended.
Senator Mander&on presented petition
from large number of women asking
that they be granted the ripht of suffrage
in tbe Territories.
Senator Chandler is still championing
the rights of disfranchised voters in the
South. Tbis week he presented a poll
tion from Midway, S. C. acklng Congress
to take steps lo amend or abnllsb State
laws of registration aTectlng the rights of
citizens to vote for federal offlrers.
Representative Springer, who stems to
be acting Independently of the Democratic
managers of the House, has introduced
Joint resolution for Ihe admission as States
ol Arlzons sod Idaho. It was easy enough
to Introduce the resolution, but to get it
before the House for action is an entirely
different thing. However, Mr. Springer's
intentions are good and I take pleasure in
' giving the credit to wblcb be la entitled
Senator Hiscock bat gone to Indianapo

Harrison In regard to New York's repre.

Notwlfbslsndlng the notice given out
before tbe holiday recess that no furthe
bearings would be granted by tbe Senate
(nance committee to parties Interested In
the tariff bill great pressure la belnir
brought upon the members ot that com
mittee to muk changes in the bill. A
number of changes have been agreed upon
by the Republican members ot the com
mittee, but they discreetly refuse to make
them public until the time an ives for their
adoption. Just to give an Ideaofwbat
some people want I will mention the fact
that one man who was here thl week
banded a member of ihe committee a
memorandum of forty changes he waiitt d
made in the bill, and became really angry
when he was told that it was extremely
iloubtlul whether the committee would
see lit lo oblige him. Ob, 1 can tell you.
it is pleasant lo be a Congiessinun when
Congress Is not in session. Promises are
easy enough then. ,
