?Bualnesk of The House.
Washington, D. C. April 23.?Senate:
Unanimous consent was asked by Mr.
Call to have the Joint resolution hereto?
fore offered by him. requesting the
President to send ships of war to Cuba
for the protection of American citizens,
taken up for consideration and action;
but on the appeal of Mr. Platt not to
press the request at this time and not
to Interfere with the Indian Appropria?
tion bill. Mr. Call said he would with?
hold his request for the present, but he
gave notice that as o<oon as the Indian
bill shall be disposed of, he will move
to have his Joint resolution taken up
and acted on. The Indian Appropriation
bill was taken up.
The question was on an amendment by
Mr. Platt appropriating $50.000 for the
Cherokee (the Dawcs) Commission, and
instructing the Commission with refer?
ence to the breaking up of the tribal re?
lations of the Indians and to the distri?
bution of their lands in severalty. A
point of order against the amendment
(as being general legislation on an ap?
propriation bill) was made and argued
by Mr. George.
After Mr. George had spoken for an
hour on his point of order, his argument
V/iva criticised by Mr. Vest, who said
that during his 20 yearvs' service In the
Senate he must have heard 500 defini?
tions of "general legislation," but he had
only known one of those definitions to
be crystallized In the practice of the
Senate, and that one was that the Sen?
ate always llnds what It does not want
to do to be "general legislation." and
vice versa as to what It does to do.
The debate was continued at much
length. Mr. Jones (Ark.) denouncing the
rule of crime and outrages In the Indian
Territory; Mr. Pate placing ull the re?
sponsibility for that state of things on
the "bummers, land grabbers and
thieves" who >*eek to rob the Indians;
nnd Mr. Platt declaring that more bru?
tal and savage conditions existed in
the Indian territory than In Kussla. Ar?
menia or Cuba. Finally the whole ques?
tion was disposed of by the vice-presi?
dent sustaining the point of order and
ruling Mr. Platt'u amendment to be out
of order.
The bill was then passed and a con?
ference with the House ordered.
As reported by the Senate Committee
on Appropriations the bill carried $7,413,
SOG. the great Item of reduction being
one of $1,CC0.000 for payment on the Cher?
okee Outlet purchase. This Item, how?
ever, was restored by the Senate. The
principal Items of Increase were $200.000
for surveying lands In the Indian Ter?
ritory. $200,000 for the sunport of day
and industrial schools, and $100.000 for
school buildings and sites. The bill for
the next year, as passed the Senate to?
day, appropriates over $9.000.000.
The) sundry civil appropriation bill was
taken up and went over till to-morrow.
Senate bills were passed as follows:
(Appropriating $100.000 for a public
building at Nashua. N. H.; $500,000 for

There was one railroad case?Norfolk

the brakeman was on double duty. He
attempted to make a coupling at Peters?

but the cars had been In a wreck, and
the block heads were so badly damaged
that he could not couple them. The con?

that there would be no danger If the
train, backed slowly. The conductor
gave the signal to back and the train
came back with such speed that the
brakeman's hand was caught and so bad?

Cincinnati. April 23.?In the Jackson
trial this morning the defense began a
tight against the testimony of Mayor
Caldtvell, of Cincinnati. Colonel Craw?
ford made a motion that part of the
testimony which referred to Walling be

Jud&e Holmesi said that unfortunate
legislation had entangled the Kentucky
law upon the testimony which Joint de?
fendants may offer. The court held that
anything Walling has said which Jack?

dence; that it wbuldi be necessaty for
Walling to make his statements on the

Paris, April 23.?An unusually large
crowd assembled outside the Chamber of
Deputies this morning and the galleries
were packed with visitors as soon sh
they were opened to the nubile. When
the sitting; of the chamber was formally
opsned Premier. Bouigeoln read a decla?
ration recalling the circumstances of
the vote of the Madagascar credits,
which the Senate refuses to sanction,
thus rendering It Impossible to make
expenditures which nrei Indispensable.
Whatever the motives of the Senate may
have been, he suld, the Cabinet thought
patriotism Imperiously commanded that
they should subordinate everything to a
question of natural dlgnltv and security,
which no considerations of home poli?
tics should ovcrwelgh. ' The Cabinet
were, therefore, resolved to make way
for another Ministry, though they were
not forgetful of their other duties toward
the Chamber of Deputies and the Re?
publican nation.
Mr. .Bougeols continuing said: "The
chamber has often given us proofs of Its
confidence and wo feel our Inability to
present to the President out resignations
before Informing you of our reasons for
taking such action and assuring you that
no other reason lnflu"nces us In quitting
our posts. Wo cannot allow the error
to gain hold that we. In resigning, abun
don the principle of our most Illustrious
predecessors, such ns Leon Cambetta
and Jules Ferry, that the chamber alone
Is ?bte to make or unmake Cabinets.
Fidelity to this doctrine has caused us
to Incur the reproach of being an un?
constitutional Ministry. The National
Assembly alone Is entitled to Interpret
the constitution of a Ministry."
Mr. Henri Ricard moved a resolution
declaring that the chamber reaffirmed
the right of preponderance In the rep?
resentation of -the prlnclDle of univer?
