FORTY-EIGHTH CONGRESS.
House.
Washington, .lane 14.—The House re
sumed consideration of the amendments in
dispute between the two houses upon the
Postoffice Appropriation bill, the pending
amendment being that incorporated by the
Senate appropriating $165,000 for special
mail facilities on trunk lines.
Horr moved that the House recede trom
its disagreement to the amendment and
ajrree to the amendment increasing the ap
propriation to $250,000.
Upon this motion a long debate ensued
and is still progressing.
Senate.
Washington, June 10.—The following
offered by Van Wyck, was laid over until
to-morrow: _ . .
Resolved, That the Committee on .Judici
ary be directed to inquire whether the
Piiioii or Central Pacific companies have
become responsible for the guaranteed in
terest on any bonds other than those speci
fically authorized by Congress or outstand
ing at the date of the passage of the act
making appropriations lor the legislative,
executive and judicary expenses of the
government for the year ending June 30th,
7,-7 1, and ifso, to what extent and under what
actual or alleged authority. Also, whether
any new stock was issued by either of said
companies in violation ot said act.
Plumb, from the Committee on Appro
priations, reported the Army Appropria
tion bill as agreed upon by the Committee
on Appropriations—$250,000 more than the
House bill.
A sensation was created by Ingalls, who
intimated that Senator Brown had inserted
in the official report of a debate words not
spoken by Ingalls, thus committing forgery
upon the reports of the Senate.
The chair called Ingalls to order, and
after considerable excited talk the matter
went over until to-morrow.
Washington, June 16.—Butler called
up his resolution providing tor the ex
amination of the New York banks by a
committee of the Senate.
Morrill moved its reference to the
Finance Committee.
A short debate ensued, and the matter
went over until to-morrow\
The Senate concurred in the action of
the House on the Senate amendment ap
propriating $1 HO,000 for necessary and
special facilities on trunk lines. _ The
House increased the amount to $250,000,
in which the Senate concurred. The Sen
ate unanimously insisted upon its three re
maining amendments.
Consideration of the Utah bill was re
sumed, Brown having the floor. Replying
to Hoar, Brown said the Senator lrom
Massachusetts had charged him (Brown)
with having lor a great part ot his life sus
tained the institution which prohibited
legal marriage among a part of the people
ot Georgia. The system ot slavery to
which the Senator from Massachusetts had
called attention originated in Massachu
setts, and the South derived much of its
S'avery from that State. Brown read from
Elliott's history of New England to show
that the people of Massachusetts bought
and held as slaves Scotchmen. Irishmen,
Indians, negroes and mulattoes, and that
they sent cargoes of rum to Africa, ex
changing rum for slaves, some ot whom
they sold ; that they kidnapped Indians
and sold them into slavery : that some pro
hibited baptism to their slaves ; that mar
riage relation was disregarded; that they
sold negro women and children in open
market, and advertised a women with
chihl six months old to be sold, "together
or separate to suit purchaser;" that they
raised slaves for market, and when they
found it unprofitable to raise them in the
climate of Massachusetts they gave away
the negro children like puppies to any one
who would take them. 'I he charter of
Georgia, Brown continued, originally for
bade slavery, anil while Massachusetts was
importing slaves and selling them for
profit, Georgia was refusing to hold them.
Finally Georgia adopted slavery, purchas
ing part of her slaves from Massachusetts.
The Senator from Massachusetts had said
there were a large number ot mulattoes to
lie accounted for in the South. He I Brown )
did not claim that the South was guiltless
in this particular. His effort had lieeu to
show that no section of country was guilt
less. He rt ad from various historical
works to show that a large number of
mulattoes were always found in Massachu
setts during the time slavery prevailed
there, and when, in 1788, Massachusetts
passed an act expelling from the State all
negroes, the courts held that the act ap
plied to mulattoes. It may have been
very natural to expel negroes from Massa
chusetts, but it seemed a little unlawful to
expel mulattoes, not that they were akin
to the people of Massachusetts, but possi
bly because climatic influences had
changed their color until they were more
in likeness to the good people of that
State. The cold, bleaching winds of Maspi
chusetts, or some other cause, had modified
the ebony color of the Africans in that
State and infused a compound of yellow,
so that they were no longer called negroes,
but mulattoes. Afterwards there wa* an
amendment providing that in no case shall
husband and wife be competent wit
nesses except as to the fact of lawful mar
riage having been contracted between wit
ness and the party defendant.
After a short debate the Senate went
into executive session and soon alter ad
journed.
House.
Washington, June Iff—Randall moved
that the House go into committee of the
whole on the deficiency appropriation bill.
Aiken, though urging an early adjourn
ment, did not think the Appropriation
Committee should monopolize the day.
Randall said the House had fixed June
30th as the date for final adjournment, and
he understood that the Senate was likely
to fix July 3d. If either of those dates
were determined upon consideration of
the appropriation bills must be pressed.
Randall's motion was agreed to by a ,
vote of 106 to 52, and the House went into
committee of the whole, Dunn in the chair. '
Senate.
Washington, June 17.—After the |
reading of the journal, Brown rose to a
question of privilege. He had the clerk
read the remarks Ingalls made yesterday re- j
lating to his I Brown's) remarks made in
the debate on Friday last. When the
clerk concluded reading Brown said he ,
had not replied to Ingalls' remarks yester- j
dav because he did not want to speak
under irritatiou, which Ingalls' remarks ;
were calculated to provoke. He called the
attention of the Senate to the insulting
language used by the Senator from Kansas
toward a memlier of the Senate who could
not repel such insults without violating
the rules, which all Senators were in honor
bound to obey. Brown did not wish to
glaze over this matter, and charge the
Senator from Kansas with falsifying the
records and committing forgery upon the
records of the Senate. This language was
a deliberately planned insult and uttered,
not only in violation of the rules of the
Senate, but in defiance of the authority of
the presiding officer.
The chair said the Senator from Georgia
was out of order.
Brown—"Then, sir, that remark is with
drawn under the ruling of the chair."
The remarks of the Senator from Kansas,
Brown said, were not made hastily, but
afff-r two days had elapsed, and after, as
Brown supposed, a satisfactory disclaimer
from himself had been made of all offen
sive imputations. Notwithstanding the
reassurance made in the Senate by Brown,
|
,
;
the Senator from Kansas had persisted in
his purpose of insulting a Senator.
The chair thought this observation out
of order.
Brown submitted to the Senate whether it
----- j . „„„
would permit such outrageous and inexcus
able breech of its pri vileges to go unnoticed. ,
In regard to the insinuation of want of
courage, he ventured to say that there was
nothing in the personal character or an
tecedents of the Senator from Kansas to
! make him an object of apprehension or to
! excite the lears of any man. There was
• no place so safe as this Senate chamber for
a man of discreet courage to bluster and
parade his vituperative rhetoric. No other
Senator would have used such language as
the Senator from Kansas had used under
the protection of the Senate, and he
Ingalls; would not use it except under
the protection of the Senate.
Ingall said if the Senator from Georgia
would allow the remarks made by him this
morning as they had been delivered he
(Ingalls) would be contented, but if these
remarks were to be amended by interpre
tations and observations not delivered be
fore they had been sent to the printing office,
he (Ingalls) preferred to wait before ean
uassing the vote until all the returns were
in. The Senator from Georgia, Ingalls
said, was mightier with the pen than
either the tongue or sword : that the Sen
ator shed ink like water. He was very
courageous with the pen. Ingalls would
not be diverted from the real question at
issue. That question was whether the
records of the Senate had been falsified
by interpolation of matter personal in its
character, susceptible only of offensive
interpretation after the record had been j
made up by the reporter as to the irnputa
j tions of the Senator from Georgia upon his
(Ingalls') personal character and appear- j
ances. He begged to say to the Senator i
from Georgia that he (Ingalls) distinctly j
avowed all that he had hitherto said of
any sense that the Senator from Georgia
saw fit to attribute to it, and that he
1 (Ingalls) did not shield himself behind
the privileges of the Senate chamber.
The usual breathing pause following
___ _ pause
the delivery of this sentence was character
ized by a dead silence in the chamber and >
crowded galleries. When Ingalls added, j
"This is all I desire to say in response to (
the gentleman ' a general abuse was heard j
and the -galleries were instantly half |
emptied. i

Washington, June 17.—Mr. Slocum pre- ,
sented the conference report on the Gen. !
Fitz John Porter bill. The effect of this is
to strike out of the bill the words 'together
with all rights, titles and privileges," and
to insert the words "provided that said
Fitz John Porter shall receive no compen
sation or allowance whatever prior to his
appointment under this act," instead of
the following words in the bill "but this |
not be construed as authorizing |
act shall
pay or compensation or allowance prior to
his Appointment under it." The confer
ence report was agreed to—yeas 158 ; nays
61.
Paysou, from the Committee on Public
Lands, reported back the bill to restore all
lands held in indemnity limits for railroad
and wagon road purjioses.
The House went into Committee of the
Whole, Dunn in the chair, on the Defici
ency bill, which passed.
Senate Bills.
Washington, June 16.—Senator Miller,
of California, offered iu the Senate to-day,
as an amendment to the Deficiency House
bill, the bill introduced by him this session
which provides for granting to the State of
California 5 per cent, of the net proceeds
from the sale of the public lauds in that
State.
Senator Plumb reported favorably to the
Senate from the Committee on Public
Lands, the House bill to declare forfeited
the unearned lands granted to the Atlantic
and Pacific Railway Company.
Business Before Congress
Washington, June 15. —In the
House
to-morrow after the usual Monday call of the
Statesand Territories for the introduction |
of bills, it will be in order for the Commit
tee to suspend the rules for the immediate
passage of selected bills, one from each
Committee, or assignment of special days
for their consideration. The Committee on
Banking and Currency is first on the list
and will ask the House to set apart a spe
cial day for the discussion of the McPher
son funding bill and the Dingley bill,which
provides for the investment of th« bank
note redemption fund in Gonernment
bonds.
The other Committees will offer motions
as follows :
Commerce—To fix a day for the consid
eration of any or all bills reported from
the committee.
Agriculture—For the passage of the bill
to make the Commissioner of Agriculture
a Cabinet officer.
Foreign Affairs—To fix a day for the con
sideration of its business.
Military Affairs—For the passage of the
bill providing for the loan of cannon, tents,
etc., to military organizations.
The unfinished business at the adjourn
ment yesterday was the bill to compel the
land-grant railroads to pay the cost of sur
veying and patenting their lands. It is
therefore entitled to come up as regular
order on Tuesday, but as the question of
consideration will undoubtedly be raised
against it by the members in charge of va
rious other bills which have been made the
social order for that day.
The bill providing for the forfeiture of
the "Backbone" (La.) railroad land grant is
a special order for Tuesday, immediately
after the reading of the journal. The
same day also has been set apart lor the
consideration of the bill to prohibit the ,
importation of contract labor.
The measure to regulate the Presiden
tial count is also unfinished business, and
its friends will try to secure its considera
tion day after day until it shall lie finally
disposed of.
The Senate bill to provide accommoda
tion for the National Library and House
bill to amend the Thurman sinking fund
act are also deferred special orders, and
either of them may secure enough votes j
for consideration this week. j
The General Deficiency appropriation bill
awaits action on the House calendar and is
likely to push aside any other measure
when the Appropriation Committee insist J
upon it.
Randall hopes to be able to report the j
Sundry Civil bill this week and it will be j
called up for consideration as soon as pos
sible after the passage of the Deficiency '
bill.
The Army appropriation bill will be re- j
ported to the Senate from the Committee 1
on Appropriations to-morrow, and will
probably be taken up and passed on Tues
day or Wednesday.
The Mexican pension bill which was dis
cussed nearly all week has not been dis
posed of, and having, by reason of some ol
its proposed amendments, become a semi
political measure, the time and manner of
its final disposal are uncertain.
Aside from the progress made by the Sen
ate Committee on Appropriations with
the Army aud Legislative bill and the con
currence of the House in a few Senate
amendments to the l'ostoffiee appropriation
bill and the return of that measure to the
Senate with a request for further conference,
the condition of the annual appropria
tion bill remains as stated in last week's
forecast.
James
Blaine.
[San Francisco Cronicle.J
* * * No other American statesman?
with perhaps the single exception of Henry
Clay, has ever concentrated on himself an
^ ghare of the j Q admiration and
c ^ afidence of his part v . Like C lay, Blaine
is a man of the people, with a genius for
politics and statesmanship, and the very
impersonation of American aspirations and
institutions. * * * No living man has
so large a knowledge at ready and instant
command of all the workings, wants and
requirements of the government and the
country. He is by far the most conspicu
ous representative of those distinctively
Republican ideas which have made the
United States the richest and grandest
nation in the world—a thorough believer
in the policy of protection, which elevates
labor ; an ardent and enthusiastic pleader
for the rights of man ; devoted to the na
tional honor; and a man who,as President,
will do more to make this country and its
citizens respected abroad than has ever
been done since the foundation of the gov
ernment, unless we much mistake his
metal. With this man at the helm ot it,
we shall have no slipshod, shilly-shally,
back-down-aad-swallow-the-insult foreign
policy.
This implies that the people will give
him a Congress that will support his policy.
If they do that we shall hear no more
party bickerings about the comparatively
trifling expense of creating and maintain
ing a reputable navy eampatible with the
wealth, power and dignity of the country.
We shall get a navy that will not only not
leave such outlying cities as those of the
Pacific coast at the mercy of third-rate
Powers like Chili, and our foreign Consuls
open to insult and outrage, but a navy
backed by an Administration that will en
force respect for the flag and the citizen in
every quarter of the world. vV e shall have
what the country has sadly needed for
many years—a respectable foreign policy,
as well as a firm and domestic one. And
it is because the people have confidence in
the patriotism and ability of the man that
his name inspires so much enthusiasm in
ow arty^ with a quiet respect from
tfae members 0 f a ][ other parties—a natural
j eader e f me n, like Clay and Andrew Jack

to j lig j n t e nse love of and towering pride of
country, fits him pre-eminently for the
chief of the most ardent, energetic, intelli
gent, brave and ambitious nation of fifty
millions that ever existed on this planet;
and now that he is fairly set afield we
count upon his election as an event as sure
as anything in the future can be, and we
shall acknowledge our faith iu the Amer
icanism of Virginia, North Carolina and
some other Southern States misplaced if
they fail to aid in his election. As for this

Concerning the Park.
D. E. Fogarty, cashier of the First Na
tional Bank of Livingston, is iu the city.
Mr. Fogarty informs us that business is
lively at Livingston; that travel for the
Park is already setting it ; and that Geo.
W. McGee, a celebrated caterer from St.
Paul, is now on his way out to open the
National Park Hotel, provided a satisfac
tory settlement can be made with the
creditors who have possession of the build
ing. If terms cannot be made with th e
men the northern Pacific will put up
large number of tents to accommodate the
traveling public, and Mr. McGee will have
charge of the culinary department. Vice
President Oakes has issued orders to run
dining cars and sleepers on the National
Park branch.

' ' x
the selection of the man he wants a good
deal by the expression of the human lace
but the traits of a young man will go fur
ther to determine the merchant in his selec
tion than the smooth, innoceut face, ex
pressive eyes and noble countenance.
The discerning merchant or business
man don't want a yotmg man with fingers,
stained with the obnoxious cigarettes, nor
does he select one with a cigar in his mouth
morning, noon and night, or the nobby
pipe. He would as soon select one with a
bloated face or bleared eyes reddened with
loss of sleep and dissipation. He will shun
also the languid young man who don't get
out on the street until the active men of
the city have put in a good quarter of a
day's work. He will shun also the young
man who sits down before breakfast and
keeps sitting all day whenever he comes to
a club table or a cool shade. The mer
chant still in search of a young man that
he would like to promote or make a part
ner in his business, will not take into
his employ or confidence, a young
man he knows to be a sport, or
one addicted to sly dissipations, or on e
whose bachelor quarters is the haun t for
his fast companions who keep late hours.
It is pretty hard now-a-days to find a
young man competent in all respects for
the responsible duties of a salesman, bank
clerk, business partner or tradesman. The
fault is with the young man of the period,
not with the careful merchant who wants
a trusty salesman or a good partner. It is
the young men of this age who will lie the
leaders in all trades, occupations and pro
fessions in the next, and it will depend on
the foremost ones in all business integ
rity and good habits, who shall be the
most prominent. Aud of all the habits
that tend to demoralize the young men of
to-day there is none more vicious than
that of smoking at an early age and con
tinuously puffing away while at work, in
season and out of season, on the street and
at the church door, taking a last whill as
No man can smoke
and work at the same time, nor can he
render a full day's service while engaged
at the occupation of keeping his pipe
agoing, or relighting his cigar, or taking a
fresh cigarette.

to do two things at once is a failure. All

Smokers therefore, especially
young ones who are entering on active,

mash with the most elegant young lady in
the land, should never be caught on the
street in the act of smoking and should so
conduct and restrain the habit so as to only

Union Sunday School Meeting.
At the call of the pastors and Sunday
school superintendents of the city a num
ber of persons interested in Sunday-school
work met at the Methodist Episcopal
church ou Saturday evening. The meet
ing was in charge of Mr. E. Sharpe ot the
Presbyterian school, and after informal ex
ercises, consisting of prayer and singing,
Mr. Sharpe conducted an exposition ot the
International Sunday-school lesson for the
following day. The exercise was one of
great interest and profit. At its close it
was voted to form an Association, and Revs.
Streator and Garvin and Mr. A. E. Bunker
were appointed a committee to retire and
prepare a set of rules governing the organi
zation and a list of officers. Thetollowing
is a draft of the rules:
I.
The object of this organization is to en
courage and develope Sunday-school work.
II.
The name shall be the Helena Sunday
School'Associ at ion.
hi.
The time of the meetings shall be once
a month.
IV.
The meetings shall be in charge ol' rep
resentatives of the different churches in
the order of their organization, to be select
ed by the Executive Committee.
V.
The officers of the Association shalljlie an
Executive Committee, one from each
church ; (the Secretary to be ex-officio the
member from his church), who shall pre
pare a programme for each meeting and
present it at the preceding meeting. They
shall select leaders in the order stated above,
and secure a place for each meeting. There
shall be a Secretary and Treasurer, also (one
person ) who shall keep a brief record of
each meeting, conduct the correspondence,
insert notices in the newspapers, receive
and pay out moneys, and perform any other
duties which belong to his offices. All the
officers shall be chosen at the annual meet
ing by the Association, to hold office one
year ; (they can be re-elected); the year to
begin the first meeting in July, which is
the annual meeting.
VI.
Any person may become a member of the
Association by signing the articles of agree
ment.
These were adopted, and it was voted
that the Executive Committee consist of
the different p;istors of the city.
Rufus B. To bey, of the ^Congregational
church, was chosen Secretary and Treas
urer ot the Association.
The time and place of the next meeting
will be duly announced.

The first wool clip of the season, some
90,000 pounds, has been sold at Miles City,
but the price it brought is not stated.
One of the neatest business offices in
Miles City is the agency of the North west
Live Stork Journal, of Cheyenne.
The Northern Pacific road took out from
St. Paul, June 10th, 1,200 head of young
cattle for Miles City ; 400 head for Milton,
M. T., and 200 head lor Billings. Contracts
for shipments during the week are 5,000
head to Glendive and 2,000 head to Miles
City.
To make a sure thing of farming in
Montana the ground must lie plowed in
the fall and seeded in the spring as soon
as the frost is out sufficiently to run a har
row.
An important matter for consideration
among wool growers [is the rates ol ship
ment of their wool east. Quite a number
are driving their flocks from the interior to
the Missouri in anticipation of making from
one cent to one and a half cents per pound
on their clip.
Graphic's colts are becoming numerous
in the Smith river valley.
The stock outlook for the season is very
good. The spring has been dry, yet the
grass is splendid aud the .Tune showers
will give it its usual luxuriance. The
weather has been very favorable and a
larger per eentage of calves, colts and
lambs has been saved this year than pre
viously.— Husbandman.
Burt, Gans & Klein were to have com
menced shearing this week. Their flock
numbers about 10,000 head, which will
keep the shearers busy for a couple of
weeks.
It is to be hoped that the efi'orts now
being made by the stockmen of Montana
to concentrate all of their forces for the
purpose of securing suitable legislation
will be successful. The raising of cattle
and horses in Montana must continue the
leading pursuit, and no good citizen can
object to the passage of the necessary laws
to give suitable protection. Jealous care
should be taken to ask only for such laws
as can be vigorously enforced. A "dead
letter" law is worse than no statute. Be
reasonable in your demands and then en
force to the fullest extent every law passed.

Vagrants or Tramps.
Five more of these pestiferous intruders
were pulled this morning by Policeman
McCormick and Gibbs and marched up to
the cooler, where they are waiting trial.
And w bat then ? There is no city ordi
nance for their punishment or authority to
put them to work on the streets. They
must therefore be turned over to the county
to be imprisoned and consequently led at
the expense of the tax-payers ot Lewis
and Clarke county, under the provisions ot
an act concerning vagrancy, approved
February 22, 1881. But there is sufficient
authority iu this law for the Sheriff'of the
county to require "such persons convicted
of vagrancy to perform labor on the public
works, grounds or highways in the county'
and may in his discretion employ any usual,
reasonable, humane and sufficient means
to guard against and prevent such persons
escaping from custody while being so em
ployed."
1'he 5th section of this statute reads, "It
shall be the duty of the sheriff', during fair
and reasonable weather, when the same
can be done without extra expense to the
county, to procure employment for and set
at work such convicted vagrants i
who are serving out their term .
of imprisonment." The punishment pro
vided by this statute for vagrancy is im- ;
prisonment in the county jail tor a term
not exceeding thirty days tor the first
offence and not exceeding ninety days for
each subsequent offence. Here is a law, it
enforced, the city paying the expense of a
guard, that will make the offence odious
and give the Street Commissioner cheap
labor for his numerous improvements now
under way. These larkies that were pulled
this morning by the police were lonnil in a
box car at the depot, where they had
taken shelter for the night. The nuisance
has about become unbearable, where
these tramps beseech money for a break
fast or dinner aud then use it for whiskey
of the vilest compound, which they buy in
Chinatown, and then huddle together in
a covered wagon for a drunken oblivion
worse than an opium sleep. But to lay in
the county jail and be fed without work
is too good a thing for these lazy im
postors, and too expensive a luxury for
the county to stand.
