"Washington, D. C, Jan. o. Among
the papers submitted to the senate by the
presiding officer were three reports from
the secretary of war in response to resolu
tions of inquirj' as to the change of engi
neers on imnrovements at the mouth of
Columbia river; as to the projected biidge
across the Arlhurkill between 2few Jer
sey and Staten Island, and as so the appor
tionment of money appropriations for the
improvement of the Missouri river.
Mr. Mitchell, of Pennsylvania, from the
committee on pensions, reported a bill
granting a pension of $2,000 a year to the
widow of General Jolin A. Logan, and
asked for its immediate consideration, but
under objection by Mr. Coke the bill w ent
over until tomorrow.
Mr.McPherion offered a resolution calling
on the secretary of the treasury for a statiT
ment of the indebtedness of the Paeif c
companies to the government January 1,
18S7, with details of all payments made on
account of sale; also as to sums due or to
become due, under existing laws, arid what
difference will result to the treasury if the
pending senate bill (funding bill) should
become a law.
Mr. Hoar moved to amend the resolution
by adding to it these worth: And a state
ment of all existing qu stions iu regard to
the amount of such debts in dispute be
tween said companies and the government.
Mr. McPherson argued against the pro
posed amendment as tending towards a de
lay, and suggested that if Mr. Hoar would
promise to not bring up the bill at the
present session he would withdraw the les
olution. Mr, Hoar expressed gieat surprise at the
proposition, and offeicd to agree not to
call up the bill until the information asked
should be obtained.
Mr. McPherson thanked the senator
even for that concession, and averted that
the effect of the funding bill would be to
give as a donation to those Pacific i ail roads
more money than the entire value of all
lands reclaimed under forfeiture bills for
the last tin ee years.
Mr. Hoar legarded this as very extraor
dinary proceeding. The bill had been re
ported iu its general featuics to the last
congress. The debt amounting to about
!?lo0,000,000 would be due to the govern
ment by these companies on an aveiage of
eleven or twelve ears from this timer A n
equal amount would be dim by the com
panies on fust moitgago" bonds & to
which the government "is subordinate.
The judiciary committee wtre satisliedthat
it would not b." expedient for the govern
ment at the end of that time to (hive these
companies into bankruptcy and hive them
sold in maiket on one hand, or operated
by the government on the other hand. If
the companies could be assured tint the
irovcrnuicnl would not assert its authority
and would allow them to make arrange
ments to raise a new loan they would pro
bahlv do that and go on. .But now they
could not do it.
After fuither discussion the ma'ier went
over without action until tomor'ow.
The senate then look up the conference
report on the inter sl:U- commerce bill and
was addressed by Mr. Plait of Connecticut,
ile thought the senate bill iccognixed a
piim-iple that was sound; that principle
was that the question of what was a icas
onab'e charge on freight to or from a sta
lion was not to be determined by the ques
tion of what was charged for freight to or
from another station. In other words The
question of reasonable freight charges var
ied with locations and with the "volume
and character of the business, lie thought
that the conference report clause (as to the
shorter di-tance being included within the
longer distance) wa uncertain and ambiir
tuiiii: it imported that there were some
shorter distances for which more might be
charged th.m for longer distances. It
would be for the courts and the conmiis--i'ner
to find out what those shorter dis
tances were.
As to the pooling claue in the confer
ence bill, be declared that he outd not as
sent to; he believed in his inmost mind that
ii was impolitic and unjust, and would em
barrass, if it did not defeat the beneficial
operations of the bill. It was for those
who opposed it to show tiafHc contracts
(misnamed pooK) were even condemned by
the common law or were so far wrong in
principle that (buing oppo-ed to public pol
icy) it was just and wise legislation to make
them criminal offences 1 he purpose and
results of pooling contracts were entirely
misunderstood. It was the evil significance
which attached to the unfortunate word
"pool" that had created prejudice in the
minds of the people. The fact was that a
pooling contract was simply au agreement
butwten competing lines to apportion
their competitive buiuesss; it did not touch
the local business and has no reference to
it. Local business was left to each indi
vidual line that was not competitive busi
ness and had nothing to do with the
through rates.
Mr Piatt quoted from the report (for i
lS79)ofMr. Ximmo, then chief of the!
bureau of statietics, to show that pooling
was mostly an apportionment of traffic ie '
tween roads cniraed in competitive traffic. '
and from a pamphlet bv Judge Coolev, t(
show that the purpose of pools is to avoid
ruinous competition and unjust discntn ;
ination airamst snippers. He aked who '
would believe that in a bill ostensibly for
the purpose of preventing uaju: discrim- '
inatious a clause should be f.Kind leaking
that crimina! which railroad cent-,
panics have resorted to to prevent '
unjust discrimination? He challenged any-'
body to show that the object, the purrxxH'. '
or the faithful observance of a poo! traffic
was any thin? cle than the maiutainance of
stabte rates. He had taken and analvsed
the evidence taken before the senate com
mittee on inter-state commerce and could
say that three-fourths of it was in favor of j
the idea, not of prohibiting, but of legal-j
izing and regulating railroad pools. As to
the maxim of competition being the life of
trade he illustrated its fallacy by assuming
the case of a third line of railroad being
constructed between Kew York and "Wash
ington, and said it was building of com
pleting railroads where they are not needed
that led to the necessity of contracts for
the apportionment of competitive business.
There was a competition which was worse
than combination or co-operation of rail
road companies.
Pooling contracts, he declared, were in
aid of remedying the abuses that were com
plained of. lie djd not deny that there
were now discriminations against shippers,
but these discriminations existed in spite of
pools. y'hy, he asked, declare that" crim
inal which had for its purpose that which
was claimed to be one of the purposes of
the pending bill? If competition meant
the. survival of the fittest, and the destruc
tion of the weakest, it was anti-christian
and and anti-Republican, and the society
that favored it would lapse into barbarism.
It was the old pagan despotic idea that
"might is right," and was expressed in the
common phrase, "the devil take the hind
most." The senate went into executive session
before Mr. Piatt had completed his speech
and soon after adjourned.
The call of committees having been dis
pensed with, Mr., Davidson of .Florida, on
behalf of the committee on railways and
canals, called up in the morning hour the
bill for the pennauent improvement of the
Erie and Oswego canals, and to secure
the fieedom of same to commerce of the
United States. The bill was considered in
committee of the whole, Mr. Crisp of
Georgia in the chair.
Mr. Weber of New York, introducer of
the measure, advocated its passage. The
exhaustive report of the committee on rail
ways and canals was read in Weber's time
and consumed the greater part of the
morning hour, and the committee rose
without action.
The house then went into committee of
the whole, (McMillan, Tennessee, in the
chair) on the Indian appropriation bill.
The bill gave lise to no opposition in any
of its features and the committee having
risen it was passed without discussion or
division. It appropriates $3,11.3,000.
The military academy appropriation bill
was then taken up aud passed within a
quarter of au hour.
The speaker laid before the house the
following communication:
Washington, Dec. 31, 'SG.

The president today transmitted to the
house of representatives a letter from the
secretary of state enclosing a mass of
statements from consular officers of the
custom duties levied by foreign nations
upon the produce and manufactures of
the United States. .In his letter of trans
mittal Secretary Bayard says: In framing
this inquiry, only such articles were in
cluded as are exported from this country
to foreign markets, the design being to
show what burdens are imposed upon ex
isting commerce and to leave for a future
inquiry what hindrances or prohibitions
entirely prevent the sale of Ameri
can products in competition with the pro
ducts of other nations. In a future re
port these tariffs will be considered in de
tail and their restriction and retaliatory
features pointed out.
On the importance of this subiect at the
present time I need hardly dwell. The de
mand for new markets for American pro
ducts has become almost imperative, aBtl
these markets must be sought among those
nations which from fiscal or protective ne
cessity, from the need of reycuue or the
desire of fostering manufacturing indus
tries, have imposed duties upon articles of
foreign growth or production which are
most onerous and oppressive, not only to
the consumer but to the American export
er. A comparison between the tariffs is
herewith presented, and that of the United
States may point out in what, lines an ex
port trade" in American products may be
built up by a judicious remodeling of our
own tariff. In conclusion I would call
your attention to the fact that no nation
claiming to be civilized imposes duties up
on works of art at all commensurate with
those levied uuder the tariff of the United

At 2 the senate took up the conference
report on the inter-stale commerce bill and
was addressed by Mr. Piatt, of Connecti

He advocated its rejection solely for the
reason that it prohibits pooling; in all other
respects he favored the compromise bill.
Subject (pooling) was not well understood
by the public generally. He proceeded to
examine it at length and explain the law,
