In the senate to-day the question of the Washington county, Tex., election and of the recent assassination there of Joseph Hoffman, a witness before the senate committee which had been investigating that subject, was brought up by a resolution offered by Senator Spooner, and a heated political dis cussion followed. Senator Saulsbury said he regarded it as a disgrace to the constituency of the senate of the United States for the body to be converted into a political machine to advance the interest of the republican candidate for the presi dency. Such investigations were cot up merely for political effect, but they were a disgrace to the senate, and were responsible in every point of view for trying to keep up animosity at the south. Senator Hoar treated the remarks of Senator Saulsburj as an uncon scious admission that putting a stop to political murders at the south and the establishing of a free ballot and fair count there was to the advantage of the republican party, lhe senator from Delaware was quite right in that. He had no doubt that every locality in Texas where these things had hap pened were in the district now rep resented by the author of the Mills bill. The people, if there could be an honest and tair vote not interrup ted by murder and violence, would by a large majority pronounce against that raid upon the industries and in terest of the wage earners of the coun try. He denied that the outrages in Texas, Mississippi and other states were the result of race controversies, but the results of democratic efforts to maintain supremacy. Senator Coke declared that the senator from Masachusetts (Hoar) had in a few minutes misrepresented the testimony taken more than it had been perverted in the whole discussion to day. The senate had been seeking what he was utterly ignorant of. He added that the murder of young Bolton in Brenham (for which three negroes had been hanged) was a cold blooded murder perpetrated by negroes. It was wrong that these negroes were taken out of jail and haged, but it was done because they had assisted in the murder of young Bolton. There was nothing political in it. It had noth ing in the world to do with politics. Referring to Senator Hoar's remark about the Mills bill Senator Coke said Mr. Mills was able to answer for himself, and that if the senator desired to talk further Mr. Roger Q. Mills would go to Boston and discuss the tariff wiih him and be glad of an opportunity. Senator Hoar asked him whether he had heard by this morning's paper that the republican party of Texas had resolved on account of violence not to put a state ticket in the field. Senator Coke replied it was a gross and palpable falsehood. There was not a republican in Texas who was not as fearless of consequences in his political and other actions as the sena tor from Massachusetts when he was at his home. The republicans of Texas were not putting a ticket in the field because by combining with a lot of odds and ends and isms of other politics they hoped to accomplish re suits which they knew they would be powerless to accomplish republicans. The pretense of lawlessness in Texas was a fraud and sham gotton up for political purposes to gain a few votes and make a few people at home think their sen ators were very smart. This thing had been kept up for a couple of years to be brought up now to deceive the people, and to accomplish this the senator from Massachusetts had un dertaken, as a blind, to insrruct the senate that the trouble in Texas was a race prejudice. As to the tariff is sue, if there was anything in this world which the average Texan would go ?ny number of miles out of his way to kick and kill and destroy, it was the protective tariff. At the close of Senator Coke's speech the resolution went over with out action and the senate adjourned. Insure your property with Meek & Fitzhugh, oHlco In Paclflo Ex- press oillco, 4th St. .
