NATIONAL CAPITAL.
The Senate Endorses the
Monroe Doctrine.
ONLY THREE DISSENTING VOTES.
The House iv a Complete Dead-
Lock Over the Reed
Resolution
I Associated Press Dlsnatohes to the Hbrald.
Washington, January 7.—ln the Sen
ate to-day, the Committee on Pnblic
Lands reported the bill to establish the
Lincoln Land District in New Mexico,
which passed both Houses last session
and failed to receive the Presidential sig
nature before adjournment. The bill was
passed.
The resolution heretofore offered by
Stewart to inquire whether there
have been obstructions of mining
operations in Nevada on account
of the prosecutions recommended
by the General Land Office was taken
up and agreed to.
The resolution reported from the Com
mittee on Foreign Relations, with refer
ence to the Panama Canal, was taken up.
Gray rose to make some remarks, but
was interrupted by a motion made by
Edmunds, seconded by Hoar, that in
consideration of that subject, tbe doors
be closed. The galleries were accord
ingly cleared, and the Senate went into
secret session.
THE MONROE DOCTRINE ENDORSED.
Tbe secret session continued till 5:40,
when the doors were reopened. It was
then found that the discussion had been
carried on by Edmunds, Sherman, Mor
gan, Gray and Jones, of Arkansas, and
that the joint resolution was adopted,
yeas 49, nays 3, having been modified
so as to read :
Resolved, By the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of
America in Congress assembled, that
the Government of the United States
will look with serious concern and dis
approval upon any connection of any
European Government with the con
struction or control of any ship canal
across the Isthmus of Darien or across
Central America, and must regard any
such connection or control as injurious
to the just rights and interests of the
United States and a menace to their wel
fare.
Sec. 2. That the President be and he
is hereby requested to communicate this
expression of tbe views of the Govern
ment of the United States to the govern
ments of the countries of Europe.

On motion of Allison the existing order
as to tbe vote on the Tariff bill was ex
tended for one day in consequence of this
day's session having been occupied by
the Panama Canal resolution, so that the
vote on the Tariff bill is to be taken on
the 22d of January at 1 o'clock. Ad
journed.
HOUSE HI 111 Ml HS,
The Day Spent in Voting on Prop
ositions to Adjourn.
Washington, January 7.—ln the
House, immediately after the reading of
tbe journal, the contest over the pro
posed change of rules, abolishing the call
of States on suspension Mondays, was re
sumed, the pending question being on
ordering the previous question. The
Clerk proceeded to call the roll. The
vote resulted: Yeas 112, nays 26, twenty
nine less than a quorum. The call of the
House was ordered. The call developed
the presence of 226 members. The vote
was again taken on ordering the previ
ous question upon the resolution. Again
the quorum faded away, the vote stand
ing: yeas 136, nays 15, twelve votes be
ing still lacking to enable the House to
proceed to business.
Reed moved the call of the House.
Two hundred and twenty-six members
once more responded to their names,
and Blount moved to adjourn, but the
Democrats remained divided and the
motion was defeated; yeas 74, nays, 138.
Then Anderson, of Kansas, entered a
motion that when the House adjourned
to-day it be to meet Wednesday next,
and the Speaker entertained the-motion,
notwithstanding the point of order raised
by Reed that it was not in order. No
quorum appeared on the vote of tbe
tellers, and the yeas and nays were
ordered. The motion having been de
feated, yeas 5, nays 174, Cheadle moved
to adjourn; lost, yeas 71, nays 125.
Anderson, of lowa, then came forward
to reinforce his namesake from Kansas
with a filibustering motion for adjourn
ment until Wednesday, which was
promptly voted down, yeas 12, nays 155,
and the motion by Blount to adjourn met
with the fate of its predecessors.
Another roll call on a motion to adjourn
until Thursday consumed the time until
5 o'clock, when under the rule the ses
sion ended by limitation.
Anderson, of Kansas, and Anderson,
of lowa, with Cheadle, of Indiana, Lind,
of Minnesota, and Lehlbach, of New
Jersey, were the only Republicans who
voted with two-thirds of the Democrats
for adjournment; the other third of the
Democrats consisting of the special
friends and advocates of the Oklahoma
and Union Pacific bills, voted with
almost the solid Republican side against
adjournment.
A Democratic caucus was announced to
be held at 7:30 r. m.
SAMOA AND MAVTI.
AMllly of Our Navy to Patrol These
Waters.
Wasaington, January 7. —The Secre
tary of State has received cable advices
from Auckland continuing the news dis
patched from Berlin last night concern
ing the battle in Samoa between the Ger
man forces and Mataafa's army, in which
many were killed and wounded. He re
fuses, however, to give any details to the
press. It is stated at the Navy Depart
ment that no more vessels have
been ordered to Samoa, but tbat there
are three that could be sent there if
necessary. One of these is the Trenton,
now at Panama, and the other two are
the Vandalis and Mohican, now fitting
out at San Francisco. It is hardly likely,
.however, that any of these vee

sels could reach Samoa in time
to be of any assistance to
the Nipsic in the present crisis.
The United States steamship Atlanta,
now being repaired at the New York
Navy-yard will probably be ordered to
Pjrt-au-Prince to relieve the Galena, as
it is deemed prudent that that vessel
leave the infected neighborhood as soon
as possible.
ALASKA INVESTIGATION.
The Alleged Outrages Shown to be
Grots Fabrications.
Washington, January 7. —Inquiry into
the alleged outrages on the seal islands
of St. Paul and St. George by employees
of the Alaska Commercial Company was
resumed by the House Committee on
Fisheries this morning. The first wit
ness called was Captain Shepherd, of the
Revenue Marine Service, who made a
cruise in Alaskan waters during the sea
sons of 1887 and 1888. He never heard
of any of the reported outrages and was
never asked to protect anyone.
Commander Nichols, stationed at San
Francisco, was in Alaskan waters last
summer in the interest of the Coast Sur
vey. He saw nothing in the treatment
of the natives that would lead to adverse
criticism.
Captain C. A. Abbey, of the Revenue
Marine Service, did not see anything to
j'istify tbe accusations against the em
ployees of the Alaska Company, recently
published.
Louis Kimmel, Assistant Treasury
Agent, at the Island of St. George from
May 1882 to August 1883, was questioned
with reference to the correctness of an
inteiview between himself and the cor
respondent of a New York paper in In
dianapolis, which rfiected seriously upon
the conduct of the agents of the Alaska
Company at the seal island of
St. George. Witness said the interview
as published was perverted; that some
thing had been put in his mouth he
never uttered. He bad never heard of
any case of rape on the island, nor did
he know of any ÜBjiisual amount of de
bauchery there.
Mr. G" B. Tingle, General Treasury
Agent to the seal islands, said he could
state positively from three years' exper
ience upon the islands, that the pub
lished stories from whatever source were
absolutely false.
Adjourned.
RETURN CERTIFICATES.
Notion to Advance the Test Case
In tne Supreme Court.
Washington, January 7. —A motion
was made in tbe Supreme Court of the
United States to-day by ex-Governor
Hoadly, of Ohio, to advance for argu
ment the case of Chae Chan Ping, appel
lant, versus the United States. The ap
pellant is a Chinese laborer who departed
from the United States for China June 2,
1887, first having secured a return
ceitificate from the Collector of
San Francisco, as required by
law. He returned to the United
States in October, 1878, but permission
to land was refused on the ground that
the cer ificate had been declared void by
the Scott Chinese Exclusion act of Octo
ber 1, 1838. Chae Chan Ping then sued
out a writ of habeas corpus in tbe United
States Circuit Court, which being re
fused, an appeal was taken to this Court.
It was contended on his behalf that the |
Scott act declaring the return certifi
cates void, was unconstitutional and
an abrogation of vested rights.
It is sought to have the case advanced
for hearing on the gtound tbat the case
is one of great importance, involving
thousands of certificates, many of the
holders of which have considerable prop
erty interests in the United States, and
tbat delay on a determination of the
case would result in a great injury to
the persons affected.
Sundry Civil Appropriations.
Washington, January 7. —The Sundry
Civil Appropriation hill was completed
to-day by the House Committee on Ap
propriations. It carries an aggregate
appropriation of 122,852,996, being
$6,721,451 less than the regular and
special estimates, and $3,769,008 less
than the appiopriation for the current
fiscal year. Among the items of appropri
ation are the following: Congressional
Library build ing, $000,000; homes for vol
unteer soldiers, $1,995,886; construction
of public buildings, $1,787,000; survey
of public lands, $205,000; public print
s 2 218 000, and quarantine service,
$50,000. &n appropriation of $100,000 is
made to complete the public building in
Denver.
Washing-ton Waifs.
Washington, January 7. —Francis C.
Hannon has been appointed Govern
ment storekeeper at Los Angeles by the
Secretary of the Treasury.
General Harrison is reported to have
said he would not appoint a Cabinet
officer from the Pacific Coast unless the
Republicans of that section abandon their
factional contests.
A telegram was received at the Navy
Department to-day, saying that 4.000 la
borers employed at the La Cebra cut,
Panama, had just been discharged, and
great distress prevails in consequence.
Iv a case appealed from lowa the Su
preme Court of the United States rend
ered a decision to-day that a State has
tbe right to piss a law compelling rail
ways to fence their lines, and failing to
do so to pay double value for stock run
over and killed.

_
fjJ>HE LOS ANGELES HERALD IS BY ALL ACKNOWLEDGED
have been the prime factor in the discovery and making known of the
resources of this section. To its sagacious outgivings more than to any
other agency our marvelous development is attributed.
THE HERALD has from its inception watched with a single eye
the budding industries of this portion of the State. For each good en
terprise this journal has at all times had a word of cheerful encourage
ment, in spite of the skeptical, it has survived to see all of its earlier
predictions f ullfilled to the letter.
THE HERALD to-day takes the lead in all respects among the
papers of Southern California. Its first care still is the material, intel
lectual and social interests of its section. It aims to be truthful rather
than over-zealous in its publication of news; to be conservative rather
than over-sensational, in its policy; to be clean and decent, respecting
the sacred piecincts of the home and fireside, rather than indecently
salacious in its tone.
THE HERALD gets all the .news from all quarters of the globe
with promptness accuracy and dispatch. Its local staff is energetic
and well-trained to miss nothing of real importance to its readers. It ia
always alive to all public enterprises.
THE HERALD still takes pride in aiding any legitimate material,
intellectual or social movement which will benefit the people. No other
journal in this section approaches it in those important respects.
