tbe protocols to the fisheries treaty wero
bong printed He expressed great
fiolntmcnt at tbelr contonts and as ho had

was necessary to explain the position when

olllclally settled what tho protocols should
contain and how far tho various papers
submitted by tbo confcrcnco should bo sub
mitted Ho received a messago from Mr
Chamberlain last week and assents to a pro
posal to make tho protocols purely formal
To his great regret tbe protocols contained
nothing but a statement of tbo meetings
and theiiiofatiieii Ho had been con
sidering what steps should bo taken by him
to sustain tbo statement tbat trade pro
posals had been made by the British plen
ipotentiaries Ho said be thought ho would

Eortant bearing on tho matter before tbo

tbo necessity of watting for Mr Chamber
lain but bo recognized that It would not
he well to discuss the trraty until tbo
United States Beuato should act Sir
Charles Tuppcr should havo to make the
1 cst possible case and It would not bo well
to furnish arguments which Canadas one
rules could use Mr Mills urged that It
would bo necessary to secure Lord Salis
burys consent to publish tho Canallan
protocols but Mr Mackenzie deprecated
that as the matter was a purely Canadian
one In this Sir Charles concurred but

called for and Infinitely less numerically

the cause of the absence of so many of tbe

famous orchestra was as strong as ever

delicacy that could hardly be excelled tbe

Among the petitions aud memorials pre
sented and rcferrod In tho Senato yesterday
were the following For the abolition ot all
licenses and taxes on commercial travelers
from tbo Womans Christian Tcmporanco
Union for tho repeal of Internal revenue
taxes on alcoholic liquors and for a prohib
itory amendment to the constitution from
citizens ot Kansas against the Springer
Oklahoma hill and from citizens ot Ne
braska In favor ot It from tbo Society of
Friends lu Kansas for a permanent arbitra
tion treaty with CI rest Britain thirty two
petlllous presented by Mr Sherman for
tbe passage ot tbe per diem service pension
bill and numerous other petitions from other
states to tho same effect
Mr Piatt lu presenting one of the peti
tions for prohibition lu tbe District ot
lolumbla contradicted the statement of
one of tbe Washington papers that such
petitions were signed principally by women
and children Ho had examined tho peti
tion whtcn he now presented and fouud
that It was largely signed by business meu
of Inteerlty and position
Mr Palmer gave notice that on Thurs

and they wcro placed on Ille
Among the bills reported from commit
tees and placed on tbe calendar was the
following To regulate commerce carried
ou by telegraph with adverse reports on
the bills Introduced by Senators Cullom
and Edmunds Mr Cullom asked Mr
lleotran who bad reported the bill from tbe
postofllce lommlttee whether It was a regu
lation bill
Mr Reagan It Is a regulation hill
Mr Culluni Then It should go to the
committee on Interstate commerce which
bns had a like bill already referred to It
one Introduced by Mr Spooner
Mr Reagnn Tho postofllce committee
has had several bills before It for the es
tablishment ot a postal telegraph and In
lieu of any of them thought It best to re
port a bllfregulatlnr the lelezrapb system
of the country The two committees might
well have simultaneous Jutlsdlctlon of the
subject but It would be hardly Just to the
postotllco committee to refuse to consider
tbe bill which It has reported
Mr Piatt argued that the bill reported by
Mr llcagau should be referred to tbo Inter
state committee be would feel anxious
either to have that committee ot which be
was a member discharged from the further
consideration ct tbe subject or let It have
Its uutramnieUd and unembarrassed con
sideration He presumed that the hill re
potted was not a bill In the Interest ot the
postal service but In the Interest of com
meice
Mr Beck thought it hardly the fair
thine take to tho control of the bill from tbe
postofllco committee- and glvo It to tbo
Interstate committee Tbe 8enalo ought
certainly to have a chance to see the bill
ob tho calendar and then It the Senate
thought It should be sent to the commit
tee ou interstato commerce that might be
done hereafter
Tbe discussion was further continued by
Senators Cullom Qbsce Blalr Reagan
Saulsbury Hoar ami lioiinan
Mr iorman expressed his regret that tbo
postoIUcc couiralltco bad not condned
pselftothc subject referred lo It that ot
establishing apustal telegraph system Tbe
rapid transmission of Intelligence was novv
In tbe bands of a single corporation which
had wiped out all coaipetitlon heretofore
attempted ond jet tint great question
reftrred to the postofllce committee had
teen set aside and n bill to regulate teleg
raphy with which the postnlllce committee
tml nothing to dol substituted for It The
prstolllcc committee had none beyond any
thing referred to it mid he therefore hoped
that the Mil would be sent to tho committee
on Interstate commerce
Mr Cullom consented to withdraw his
motion to refr the bill to tbe committee
ou Interstate coaiuicne and to have the
II I and reports laid on the table for the
Mr Sherman from the committee ou
federal relations reported back the Homo
concurrent resolution directing the Secre
taiyolthc Navy to designate a national

Mr llawley called attention to executive

On uu tt n of Mr Hale the itiillolsbed
business tbe pension bill was laid aside
and Die urgent deficiency appropriation
bill was taken up for consideration
A number of Items were struck out and
several others Inserted
Tbo amendment to strike out the follow
ing paracraph and tho public printer Is
hereby dlrectid to tiddly enforce tbe pro
visions of the eight hour law lu the depsrt
inuit under Lis tho public printers
charge havlnu been reached Mr Hoar In
qiilied of Mr Halo why tbo committee had
iteommentled tho striking out of the3C
llies
Mr Rule replied Ibat In the first place
tie committee had no knowledge tbat the
eight hour law was not enforced In tbe do
paitnuntof public printing There were
peifons employed there working by the
piece st l o desired to work more than eight
hours who preferred to work twelve hours
and tlio adoplon of the Item might ho cou
stmtd to tiitiko these men stop work at tbo
end of tight hours
Hie result of that might be to compel
good woiklngmen to stop work alter eight
boms unit to allow new untried green
bands to bu brought foto tbe olllce In
fact It bad been said that the object ot the
provision was to Introduce Hill new un
uitd men lu the public piloting olllce
Atguments against striking out tbo pro
vision were tnado by Senators Hoar Teller
and Blalr the former stating that to strike
it out would be an Indication that the
St rale was Indifferent to the subject or
tliit It did not favor the eight hour law
Mr Reagau iiigued that the committee
ou appropilatlons was right In recommend
ligibe piovlklon to bo struck out Hit
iiitaut aujHIng It meant that the public
pilntir should suspend all work at the cud
otdttht hours each day It be did so a
large number of employes would have to
suspend work to their owu groat Injury aud
to the Injury of thoservlco This was one
of those extraordinary things which Con
gicts was liable to do uuder a sort of pros
Hue wulch could not be It seemed resisted
lu either branch ot Congress
Mr Evartssald ho was not dlsposol to
prevent tbo Insertion nt the clause It the
Senate desired It He only wished to know
on what ground the Seuate desired It It
did not belong to he said but was
a derogation Imm Its dlcnlty to give repri
mand admonition or advlco It the pub
lic printer desmved to be reprimanded the
X
reprimand should come from tho executive
not from the legislative authority
Mr Reagan repeated that this was a very
extraordinary proceeding There was no
complaint tbattbu cigbt hottr law wssbclng
violated lu the ptlbllo printing olllce He
could not conceive of anything more
ridiculous
Mr Hale said that there was evidently a
feeling In the Senato that to strikeout the
provision would be considered an Inter
lerecre lib tho execution of the ellit
hour law He did not suppose that the
Senate desired to take that position So
far as ho was concerned he was willing to
let the provision go
Mr llawley protested azalnst the reten
tion of the provision us It was au attempt
tofotbld a man to wotk more than clglit
b on is It seemed to him like a piece of
dcmitgrglsm
Mr Hoar objected to the suggestion of
deinagnglstn
Mr llawley I did not know that the
senator from Massachusetts had anything
to do Willi It It struck tue Ulfftt was an
elTort of ilcniagoglam niidTTcpeat that
remark
Mr Hoar This proposition of political
economy whether wise or foolish whether
it Is dcmagoglsiu or whether opposition

which his had the support ot such pro
found thinkers as John Stuart Mill and of
such practical reitsoiicrs us Thus B Ma

Ilawlpy Sewart Hale Allison und Ka

to loteifeie with piece work or extra work
In the government printing olllec He
wished Ibe discussion to close and slid
that Senators would have three or four
mouths to look up the gcat question
