WASHINGTON WIRINGS. Sugar Men Before the Senate Finance Committee. CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS. Reassertion of the Monroe Doctrine Creates Considerable Dis cussion. (Associated i'roes Dismtcrtes u> the Hbbald. Washington, January s.—Th* sub committee of the Senate Finance Com mittee to-day gave a hearing to a delega tion interested in the sugar industry in Louisiana. Mr. Dymond was the speaker, and explained that the delega tion came to ask that the sugar schedule as proposed by the Senate Tariff bill be modified, on the ground that fifty per cent reduction in the duty on sugar would ruin the sugar industry, not only in the tropical cane of Louisiana, but also the beet sugar industry of California and the sorghum industry of Kansas. The committee took a recess until 4 :30 this afternoon, when it heard arguments from W. L. Parkinson, of Fort Scott, Kansas, who appeared in behalf of the sorghum industry of Kansas. Parkinson and Representative Peters spoke in behalf of the sorghum sugar producers in Kansas, asserting that if the sugar tariff was undisturbed, busi ness would be greatly developed in the immediate future. They objected to a bounty because it was likeh to be of only temporary duration. Henry C. Minor and Henry McCall.ot Louisiana, on behalf of the sugar planters of that State, also spoke against the bounty system, and pleaded to be left under the" present conditions. CALIFORNIANS COMING. New York, January 5. —A Washington special says Clans Spreckels will arrive at Washington to-day. California Con gressmen say that his coming has noth ing to do with tbe question of the sugar schedule in the Sena'e tariff bill. They say he wants to talk with tbe Commis sioner of Agriculture about beet rais ing and beet sugar in this country. Tbe Finance Committee was somewhat annoyed to learn that a big delegation uf California people engaged in sugar rais ing are on their way East to see that tbe proposed bounty legislation is enacted. The committee have heard all the testi mony they care for on the question. The Democratic Senators are very bitter in opposition to the proposed bounty and insist that it is radically unconstitutional. The Republicans of tho Finance Com mittee are practically determined upon this point, however, and they intend that the duty shall be made to pay the bounty. This bounty which they will propose is not to continue for a definite number of years, but to be announced by executive proclamation until such time as. tho amount ol sugar produced in America shall equal half of tbe amount of sugar imported, when it will cease, and the duty increased to a point that will make it practically prohibitive. fi*tii:th congress. The fflouroe Doctrine Discussed Pro aud Con. Washington, January 5. —In the Sen ate to-day Sherman called up the joint resolution reported by him yesterday from the Committee on Foreign Rela tions, declaring the sense of Congress in relation to the connection of European governments with any interoceanic canal and asked that it be passed immediately. A brief but very interesting diecussion ensued. Sherman said the resolution was but a reassertion of the Monroe doc trine. Teller said that the only objection he had to the resolution was that it was un timely. It should have been adopted years ago, when the construction of the Panama canal was begun. Vest suggested that while favoring the resolution, it was intended to have some bearing in favor rjf the Nicaragua Canal scheme, to which he was opposed. Edmunds, the author of the resolution, disclaimed having been influenced by any such ideas. Call opposed the resolution as calcu lated to obstruct a great work of benefi cence to mankind. George regarded the resolution as a very important and necessary step. Reagan thought the resolution should not be pressed to a vote to-day, but should be considered and debated. Its language, he said, was too broad and un restricted, and claimed that it was an unnecessary offense to France. Gray coincided with the views ex expressed by Reagan and said that the Government of the United States should not, without grave consideration, inter pose an obstacle to work which would advance the civilization of the world. Morgan took the view that Congress had no right to trammel the diplomatic action of tbe Executive by the passage of this joint resolution. If this idea was to be expressed by Congress it should L>e in the form of a concurrent resolution Sherman treated the objection to the form of the resolution as more technical than important, but was willing to have the resolution made a concurrent instead of a joint resolution, although be thought the latter a better form as binding the three branches of the Government. He would like to see all nations of the world (but not governments) co-operate in tbe work of the Panama canal. After further discussion the resolution went over till Monday and the Tariff bill was taken up. Various minor amendments were of fered to the next few sections, but were all rejected by the usual party vote, and when paragraph 336, referring to laces, etc. was reached the Senate adjourned. HOUSE PROCEEDINGS. In the House the Committee on Indian Affairs reported a bill to divide the Sioux Indian reservation into separate reserva tions. Placed on the calendar. Reed, of Maine, called up his resolu tion to abolish for the remainder of the session, tbe call of States for the intro duction of bills on the flist and third Mondays of each month. On ordering the previous question the vote stood, yeas 98, nays 20. No quorum. A call of the House was ordered. Quiet and in dolence with some badinage followed. Springer introduced a joint resolution proposing a constitutional amendment authorizing Congress to make a uniform law of marriage and divorce. Referred. Springer also moved a resolution di recting the Sergeant-at-Arms to telegraph absent members requesting them to re turn cm Monday. Carried. Adjourned. Capital Cnlllnaa. Washington, January s.—The Depart ment of State has received a dispatch from Berlin, stating the order expelling Louis B. Greenbtirst, a naturalised THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING. JANUARY 6. 1889. An e-ican citizen, from Prussia, ha= b un revoked at the instance of our legation. The President has directed the removal of Alfred Lewis, Deputy Fifth Auditor of the Treasury, for neglect and inattention to i fficial duties. There was transmitted to the House to-day a letter from the Secretary of the Interior in which he submits an estimate 'or the appropriation of $360,00J to be immediately available to meet expense n organizing and prosecuting the survey of arid lands This afternoon Seuator Plumb intro duced a bill to create a Customs Com mission and define its duties, which wai referred to the Committee on Finance. Its object is to establish a permanent Oufioms Commission in the Treasury Department, which shall make investi gations respecting the working of the tariff, and which shall furnish informa tion thereon to Congress and others. Investigations into the conduct of the Supervising Architect's office by the Sen ate sub-committee, began this morning and was conducted in secret. It was developed that Architect Freret h. * awarded contracts for the preparation ot plans for four or five buildings to archi tects in Washington, and that the clerks Hinployed in his office are working on these plans out of office hours. Senator Edmunds to day offered two resolutions (which were agreed to) call ing on the President for information as to the Venezuelan awards and as to what steps, if any, have been taken by the United States Government to collect monthly a quarter of the Caracas customs receipts. THE SKU'X HESKRVATION. Knllroads Interested In Preventing Its) Division. Washington, January s.—The Com mittee on Indian Affairs in its report ac companying the bil! providing for the di vision of the Sioux reservation, says: The Sioux Indians are completely under the control of a few arrogant and self-con ceited chiefs, and the chiefs are largelj under the control of the Northern Pacific and Northwestern Railroad Companies and a few avaricious white, or squaw men, who with a few chiefs are reaping large fortunes from the common property of their own people. The Northern Pacific Railroad Company as we are advised, owns large amounts of real estate in Dakota that it desires to sell at a profitable figure, and if this bill should become a law and thereby open up 11, --000 000 acres to settlers at nominal fig ures compared with prices they ask for theirs, the maiket for their lands will be cloned for many years to come; so there will be a mighty power tooppesethe bill. The Northwestern Railroad Company, running to Pierce on the Missouri river, is interested, so we are advised, in another road that runs around this great reservation to the Black Hills, and does all the carrying trade for this vast section. To open up this reservation would not only compel the Northwestern Railroad to complete its own line through to the Black Hills (a thing they do not want to do), but will force the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul and other competing lines through. Thei efore they oppose the measure. The Committee recommends that the hi!! pass, and asks Congress to give these Indians all the land they can use and teach them that governments are not created to support them but to protect tfaem, and that like other people they must work. Our Native Silkworms. Washington. January 5. —The Com missioner ef Agriculture to-day trans mitted to Congress a report by Joseph Neumann on the wild native silkworm of California. Neumann asked that the appropriation of $2,500 made last year to enable him to study this native silk worm be to $25,000, as neces sary to establish temporary observatory stations wherever a good plant on which the worm feeds exists iv quantities. He predicts that by continuing the study it will not be many years before this dis covery of his of the native silkworm will be one of the greatest blessings ever con ferred upon the j>eople of the civilized world.
