TttE WATER COMMISSIONERS. Regular Session Held Last Evening—The Roof of the East Side Pumpinff Station CotUractedfor—Executive Session. The water board met in regular session last evening, with Mayor Ames in the chair. There were present: Mayor Ames, Commis sioners Foote, Grimshaw, Davis and Brown, and Chief Engineer Waters. Bids were opened as follows for the East side tunnel: J. O'Rouke & Hayes, $5,000; J. J. Palmer, $1,655; J. C. Law rence, $2,964; John Burns, $1,287; C. Northway & Co. and John Peterson, $1,276; Fred Youngrin, $1,742; J. Lynch, $1,980; S. C. Cutter, $2,275. Referred to the com mittee on extension to report at the next meeting of the board. The contract, as prepared by Chief Engineer Waters for the construction of an iron truss roof at the East side pumping works with the Herzog Manufacturing company, of the East side, for $5,073.50, was read Commissioner Grimshaw moved that the proper officers be directed to execute the con tract as read, and when the contract is so axecuted the secretary take the same to the comptroller and certify that it is the contract ordered executed by the board. The question having been raised, he ex plained that the trusses, tie rods, girders, and everything forming the skeleton of the roof is to be made of iron, but the rafters are to be of wood. It is impossible to slate the roof without a wooden surface upon which the 6late is laid. In case of a fire nothing but the covering could burn, and he could not see any possible danger of any conflagration. Commissioner Brown did not anticipate that a wooden roof was to be constructed. He.questioned tb.e advisability of using any wood. He had supposed it was to be strictly fire proof in every sense of the word. Commissioner Grimshaw. insisted : that the . contract was in accordance with the original plan, and he could see no objection to accept ing the contract. He i urged ; that the work should not be delayed. . The roof ; can •" be j constructed without employing any.wood by using tie rods, but i he did .'not believe that method of construct ing roofs was safe and strong. The mayor explained that he, too, was under, the impression that the roof was to have been exclusively of iron and strictly fire proof. ' The discussion was carried on at length, when the ayes and nays were taken, as fol lows: Ayes—Grimshaw, Davis and Mr. Presi dent—3. Vii-fi —Brown and Grimshaw —2.

' :: . - AMES JVS. TOUSLEY. Mayor Ames Obtains a Judgment of $13.58 for Costs Againxt the Board of Education. The readers of the . Globe will remember the rascally work of the 'joard 'of education of this city in donating to .Prof. Tousleythe sum of $1,300 per annum out of the public funds, for alleged services rendered or to be rendered by him in behalf of the city schools while performing his duties as consul at Trieste. They will also remember that a writ of mandamus was caused to be issued .v at; the instance of the .vigilant Mayor Ames, .to restrain Prof. • Tousley from demanding or receiving said bounty, and to restrain the board of education and the comptroller and treasurer of this city, as well as their successors in office, from pay ing or causing to be paid to said Tousley any compensation as superintendent while acting as consul, on the ground that he was doing no equivalent for the money thus paid him. /'.' ■ ' The district court sustained the writ of mandamus and decided that the consular superintendent, in order to be entitled to a salary as superintendent of schools, should be here at home to do his work instead of be ing thousands of miles off in a foreign city. It was a physical impossibility for the magnetic-i'Tousley to be in two places at the same time. He drew his salary as consul at Trieste, and never received a cent as superintendent. of schools while away.- The decision was endorsed by all right-minded citizens, who were profuse in their thanks to the mayor for guarding the public funds from being misappropriated to reward a Republican henchman. The board of education felt its discomfiture very keenly and 0 determined |to reward its oratorical friend on his return from abroad. They in creased his stipend $400 per annum, making his yearly salary $3,600,. or $1-4 per day. This is $100 in excess of his salary as con sul. Yesterday judgment was filed in the court for Mayor Ames in the sum of $13.58 for costs and disbursements in the man damus case. THE COURTS. District Court. . . . - JURY CASES. .

Smith, of Hennepin county who returned home yesterday after at tending the national convention of public school superintendents at Washington, D*. C. The main object of the convention was to consider the matter of national legislative aid to education, said aid to be based upon the illiteracy of the various states according to the last census, and to be paid annually for - the space of ten years. There are three educational bills before con gress, and one of them demands an appro priation of 515,000,000. If that passes Min nesota will be entitled to an apportionment of $24,000. ; . The different states, north and south, were represented in the convention, there being about 200 superintendents present. The greatest harmony prevailed, and no sectional feeling was manifested by any of the mem bers. " , • • Since the adjournment of the con vention, Mr. Smith visited the public schools of New York, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Pittsburg, and .; trav eled extensively through Virginia and Ohio. With the schools of Virginia ■> he was highly pleased and was surprised to find such good methods of teaching as he witnessed. • The daughter : of.; Jefferson Davis is teaching school at $15 per month 1 ■; He says that the sufferers by the floods in Ohio are well pro vided for through the instrumentality of the .: society.

Many comments, he said, were made by educators in the east on Professor Tousley's amended course of studies in the city schools as given in the columns of the Globe. Gymnastic Exhibition. The Minneapolis Athletic club gave an ex hibition in the gymnasium last evening, which Was fairly well attended. The enter tainment opened with the flying ring act, by Ed. Duplessis, Lew Galvin, H. Lawrence, Charles Shibley, H. C. Penfield, J. H. Hurst, M. Cushing, R. E. Hawkins and C. O. Du plessis. This was fellowed by Indian club swinging by a class composed of Albert Taylor, E. A. Crowwell, Oscar Neis hem, E. L. Breach, E. L. Briggs and W. H. Wallace. Then came double trapese, hori zontal bar, boxing, tumbling, wrestling, parallel bar and other acts, and all were ex cellent and evidences the fact that Prof. Duplessis has his respective classes under fine training. The feature of the evening was the wrestling match— colar and elbow between Adon Butler and Eddie Duplessis. Butler won two con secutive falls, although Eddie did some ex cellent work, and came near winning one fall by throwing Butler upon his shoulders. The exhibition closed with a sparring match between Prof. Duplessis and Hal Watson. Auditor's Office, Franks. McDonald, the county auditor, re moved yesterday into his renovated and en larged office at the court house. Rooms 3 and 4 are united into one, by removing the partition, and his office is now the most com modious and best arranged in the whole building. Room 2 is connected with the main office, and in that room are the clerks, where they can labor undisturbed. All the records are so arranged that the public can easily find anything they are in search of. In the fire-proof vault Mr. McDonald has filed duplicate receipts of tax statements, poll lists, etc., of the city and county from 1857 to 1883 inclusive The auditor says that no county in the state has preserved as complete a set of records in every department of business connected with his office aa has Henne pin county, and that it is due to his owu in defatigable exertions in preserving and sys tematizing them. He is accordingly entitled to credit and the Globe is glad to accord it to him. A Democratic mass meetingjwill be held in the Market hall on Saturday, the first day of March at 7:30 p. m., for the purpose of dis cussing municipal affairs. Feb. 28, 1884, Maxy Citizens. The Building Ordinance Passes. The city council held an adjourned meet ing and took up the building ordinance. A number of important amendments were made when the ordinance was placed upon its final reading and was passed. WISE'S APPOLOGY. The Fear of the Negro Vote Causes Him to Temper His Opinions. Washington, Feb. 28. —Representative John S. Wise, of Virginia, has written a card for publication,in which he explains that part of his testimony before the senate committee on privileges and elections, in which he stated that he did not advocate social inter course between races, that colored members of the Verginia legislature came to his house to consult him, but they always came to see him in his kitchen. He says Senator Sherman asked me if the ne groes demanded social equality in Virginia. I replied they neither demanded nor expect ed it; that the colored people were, in my opinion, the gentlest, most affectionate, and the least obtrusive race on earth; that the social conditions were well understood, and they were content with them. For example, said I, a colored member of the legislature had to come to my house to see me about politics, and had gone to the kiteh en, where I went to see him and talked with him. The person referred to was one whose mother was in my employ. I merely mentioned this to show that colored people, in such positions, were less exacting of such recognition than white persons, similarly situated, would probably be. Banquet to Lieut. Harfoer. Youngstown, 0., Feb. 28.—The banquet and ball tendered Lieut. Giles B. Harber, U. S. N., by the citizens to-night, was an el egant affair. Harber has just returned from the trip to Siberia in search of Chipp and his party of the Jeannette crew, and, in return ing, met Van, and brought the bodies of De- Long and his comrades. Nineteen years ago Harber was placed at Annapolis by the late President Garfield. His fellow townspeople have watched his successful career with grat ification, and all unite in the grand ovation to-night. The Opera house, one of the largest in the state, forms a bril liant setting for a gay and distinguished assemblage. A floor had been laid over the stage, the orchestra chairs and the parquet, and on its surface are gliding the merry dancers. The great dome, the gallery facades", the proscenium boxes, the stage arch, the crystal gas jets, and the walls are covered with beautiful decorations of fleecy draperies, smilax, evergreens and pennants. Under the stage arch is a huge floral anchor sus pended by ratlins of woven evergreens, and hung from the second gallery, opposite the stage, is a mammoth horseshoe, around which is the legend, "Youngstown welcomes you home." Previous to the ball an elaborate banquet was served in Diamond hall, which adjoins the Opera house, covers beinglaidfor two hundred and fifty guests. Conference. New York, Feb. 2S.—The committee appointed at the independent Republican conference met this afternoon, and ap pointed two sub-committees, one on organiza tion, and the other for the purpose of securing headquarters in this city and at Chicago. The other committee will select representative Republicans from every state in the Union to form a central committee and then a plan for the organiza tion of the whole country will be adopted. The prison conference to-day discussed pris on labor. Among those who "took part in the debate were Rev. D. A. Byers, secretary of the board of charities, Columbus, Ohio; Su perintendent W. D. Patterson, of the Cleve land, Ohio, prison; and Prof. Francis Way land. The general opinion expressed was in favor of the contract system as the one best calculated to benefit the prisons and society. A Snow Storm Interferes with Trains. New York, Feb. 28.—A snow storm here about interfered seriously with telegraphing. In Boston the telephone wires and the wires of the fire alarm were wrecked, and falling upon the wires of the Western Union system, bothered its business considerably. At the request of the mayor, the Electric Light company did not charge their wires remain ing up, that the line men might repair the damage. A sixty foot telegraph pole, bear ing forty wires, fell with a crash at the Columbia avenue station, just as the Boston & Albany train had passed. In Ontario the trains are being delayed and abandoned, owing to the severity of the snow storm. In Nova Scotia the storm fiercely rages. Don't Like the Appointment. Salt Lake, Utah, Feb. 28. —Nothing could exceed the surprise and indignation with which the Democrats of Utah received the news that John T. Caines had been as signed a place on the Democratic congres sional campaign committee. It is regarded by them as a false personation throughout, as the true Democrats of Utah, who have always kept up their party organization, regard with aversion and disgust Mr. Caines' political church and all its works, and utterly refuse to have any affiliation with him or them. Taxes Settled. Sax Francisco, Feb. 28.—Circuit Judge Sawyer, this morning decided the railroad tax cases in favor of the Central, Southern and Northern Pacific railroads, except the Mon tery, Santa Clara, Sanmateo, and Colusa counties. Creed Haymond, the railway at torney, stated that the companies would waive judgment,andpay the face ef the taxes. This effects a loss to the state of one million, the difference between the face of the taxes and the amount sued. MOTA&IMIA. News Gleanings and Points Specially Collected and Forwarded by Tele graph to the Daily Globe. [Fargo Special Telegrams, Feb. 28, to the St. Paul Globe. | The United States Court. Fabgo, D. T., Feb. 28—In the United States court the judge overruled the motion to quash the indictment against Barquist, in the Grank Forks case In which it was charged that the grand jury had been tampered with. A motion was granted to vacate a judg ment heretofore entered in favor of the United States vs. H. E. Smith, John A. Stoyell, McGowen and M. B. McConna, bondsmen for a gov ernment contractor, who failed to fill a con tract to furnish a large amount of wood for Ft. Keogh. The amount was $21,000. This was set aside on account of deficits in ser vice, etc. The trial was commenced in the case against John McLean, of Bismarck, for cut ting timber on government lands. He was the contractor,and the men to whom he sub let the work have been acquitted. Dakota and Montana Notes. Grafton is to have a city hall and a Baptist church. Dakota has less illiteracy than any other state or territory, with three exceptions. Aurora county claims a population of 6,000 and an assessment of $600,000 against $200, --000 in 1882. In Gary there is a ladies' club called U. O. D. 8., the significance of which no man is allowed to know. An increase of 200,000 in the population j of Dakota the present year will not more than \ meet the anticipations. Devil's Lake City barely escaped a disas- i trous conflagration the past week, resulting I from the explosion of a lamp. Work is expected to commence on a $10, --000 school house at Lakota in one of the most northerly counties by March 5. "VVoonsocket is looking for quite a boom in i the spring with an Opera house, grist mill, j oil mill and several other industries. The county seat of Towner, just located, is credited with the name of Cando, and from ; the lack of houses there, it is all one can do to find it. Libbie Beaver and Ada Beardsley proved ! up the past week on choice claims near Forest City, where they have spent the sum mer and winter. Irving Bigsby, of Potter county, was married to one of the fair young ladies of Chicago on the 28th, and will be cordially welcomed on his return with his bride. Col. Stowe, formerly of the Argus, is the business manager of the Broadaxe. He is a veteran, being over sixty-five years of age, and a gentleman of popular address and business ideas. Grey Bear and his Indian friends were shown through all the departments of one of the printing offices in Fargo on Wednesday. They were no doubt surprised but manifested the Indian stoicism of demeanor. A recent issue of the Tribune at Ipswich, in Edmunds county, contained 211 land notices which shows how rapidly that section is fill ing up. These notices are a nice thing for the newspapers, but do not last very long. The most acute ears have failed as yet to catch the sound of the advancing footsteps of the $20,000 deliveries of Manitoba on their chivalric mission. Still there are those whose adventurous spirit would lead them in that direction if there was a good opening. Minnewaukan, the new town on Devil's lake, that hopes to become a popular summer resort, has a paper, the Dakota Siftings, that is a model of neatness, and upon its staff is Wm. Jackson, a former humorous writer up on the Fargo papers. At Minnewaukon, on the west end of Dev il's lake, a preacher from Devil's Lake City, is announced to hold a religious service in Fred Snore's saloon Sunday morning. The week day and Sunday deliverances of that shebang would not seem to harmonize. J. W. Connella, the commissioner of Towner county who was oscillated out in a crooked way for the time at least, was com pelled to knock down and draw the claret from an inebriated assailant a few days since, the trouble growing out of the county matter. C. R. Linan, the editor of the Graphic at Kimball, was recently married to a lovely maiden in Ohio, and in addition distin guished himself at a shooting match at Ash tabula, winning a diamond badge valued at $380. He will probably be sent to the next legislature. The Leland house now being completed at La Moure, will be one of the most complete and creditable hostelries in north Dakota, al though the town is only about a year old. It is to be 80x100 feet, veneered, three stories and basement, and have most of the con veniences of first class hotels. The Huron Times throws this insinuation at Gov. Ordway: It is not unlikely that Gov. Ordway's desire for reappoint ment fluctuates with the changing pros pect of the Sioux reservation bill. If the bill passes, there will be a large batch of new counties to organize. The supposition that the new evening paper at Fargo will be redhot in its Demo cracy is based apparently upon the fact that all the members of the editorial staff have always been Republicans, so it is alleged. It is the theory that new converts are the most radical. None deny that the paper will be a vigorous and meritorious exponent of the party it supports. T. J. Larison, of Lincoln, 111., is one of the pioneers and landmarks of Minnewaukan on Devil's lake. He is now on a visit to his old Illinois home, where he was one of the fore most and most influential citizens, and it is expected that he will organize quite a colony for the lacustrine region where he has made his home, and is developing a beautiful town. If the Broadaxe should prove a self-sus taining institution and survive the vicissi tudes of newspaper juvenility, broken back prophets will strew the streets. Should Cap tain Egbert be elected mayor in April, as some anticipate, it will strengthen the insti tution and give it prestige. Its telegraphic service is one of its most original features. It claims a wire of its own, but the connec tions are not indicated. In a case of alleged theft in a north Dako ta town the past week the accused claimed that he borrowed the money from a news paper man at Crookston, Minn. The court ■pronounced this a complete give away. If the same statement had been made of a Dakota rural editor it would have caused no surprise. The court deferred the case until investigation could be had into the profits of journalism in Minnesota. There is ground for complaint of this sort by the Ransom City Pilot: Ed Hartwell and G. T. Smith, of Kingston, returned last Sat urday from Fargo, where they have been as witnesses before the grand jury. It looks to us as if it was a great hardship for Uncle Sam to take a man away from his family and force him to make a long trip in mid-winter and then not pay him enough to cover his expenses, simply for the pnrpose of giving the officers something to do, as seems to have been done this time. This mention is made in one of the papers of Prof. Fraish Zilske, who has spent much time upon his fine farm in Ramsey county: "Recently the German government heard of him at Chicago, and traced htm to Devil's Lake, inducing him to return to his native place and resume his former relations and position, which it appears he had left in a fit of pique. The fact only lately transpired that he was a bona fide count." It is said that he intends to return at an earl day and enjoy the freedom and inspir ing air of Dakota. Devils Lake Press: Saturday night Deputy Sheriff Ferguson arrested Harry Docket on a warrant sworn out by McGahee, charging him with stealing between $200 and f 300 from him. The case came up before Justice Bennett, Monday; Magee & Morgan appear ing for plaintiff and Attorney J. V. Brooke for the prosecution. The case was adjourned until Tuesday, when the testimony was taken, , and argument made. The accused was bound over in conditional bonds of $250, which he failed to make, and is consequently languishing in the bastile. The prisoner is one of the gang of variety actors who struck the city some weeks ago in their normal con dition, that of financial wrecks. This from the La Moure Progress shows how towns are sometimes persuaded to in vest in railroads: "The Ellendale, East & West railroad is a sort of 'stand and deliver' affair. After getting the company organized, surveys made, etc., they come into Ellendale and de mand liberal subscriptions and bonuses, or, in case of refusal, they will plat a new town six miles north of Ellendale, make lib eral concessions to the Milwaukee road to meet them at this point and thus leave Ellen dale sidetracked, and they are even so heart less as to threaten to rob her of her county seat. But talk is cheap, and funds with which to perfect railroad schemes are scarce." Sully county has a cranky officer in Probate Judge Sweeney. He is by law a member of the appointing board to fill vacancies in the county board, and has blocked all business by neglecting to appear at the meeting. Send ing as an excuse that he does not think there is a vacancy. He admitted three attorneys to practice, claiming the power to do so. He i has also been making final proofs all over the county, carrying his seal around with him in a red rag, and exciting much ridicule. He [ is entirely ignorant of the rulings of the land office. It is said that he is the judge who froze two of his fingers one warm right on the prairie, which he laid to summer whiskey. He is being taken to task by the attorney for the defunct commissioner. The Grand Forks Plaindealar thinks the case of the alleged abduction of the young and imprudent girl, Leonia Smith, which has ; caused some sensation in that section, has . received more notice than it deserves and I the matter should be dropped from the courts without forcing a recital of the unsavory de i tails. It says the case is nothing more than S that of a young girl who, being indiscreet | and keeping bad company, lost her reputation | and became too intimate with certain young : men in town, which resulted in the arrest of ! a young man probably the least guilty of the many concerned in the matter. In connec | tion with this case it may be mentioned that j upon its breaking out the mother of the girl jin question was sent for and that after she i came and ascertained the facts of the case, she expressed her regret that any action had j been taken in the matter, and taking the girl with hej has since returned home. W. H. Makee, of a leading business house at Crescent City, is interested in the Turtle J mountain region, and has just returned from there. He reports to the Press that there is no doubt of the existence of rich coal fields there. The citizens are petitioning the Washington government against the proposed Indian reservation, which they say will shut out several hundred thousand acres of the finest land, all for the benefit of a few hun dred Indian half-breeds. He also says gTeat dissatisfaction exists as to the organization of the Rollette county, as Arthur Forseth and Gospore Genot are Canadian-French, and cannot speak one word of English, while the other commissioner, James Maloney, is also Canadian; also that all three of these com missioners reside at St. Johns and not in different parts of the county as the law pro vides. Governor Ordway's action in the organization of this county is severely criti cised. The new paper in the eminently new town of Minnewaukan, on Devil's lake, booms in this way: It might be well to say for the benefit of those who have the symptoms of "Dakota fever," that there are hundreds of first class farms yet open to settlement with in six miles of the west end of Devil's lake. When we say first class we mean it, and can prove it. The soil is of that rich, powerful quality that has yielded such wonderful crops throughout the territory, and which has at tracted the attention of the whole world. If you run across some *'seekers after the truth," and they ask you about our winters, don't tell them that we are basking in the eternal sunshine of summer, but that we are having a good, snug, sensible winter, which, as every farmer knows, is only the advance agent of a bountiful harvest. Our winter has actually been no colder than in many east ern states, and at no time has it been so cold that our boys could not live in their claim "shanties," (the walls of which are inch boards covered with one thickness of tar paper.) A BIG SCHEME FOILED. An Injunction to Prevent the Granting of Right of Way Across the Bay of St. Louis. | Special Telegram to the Globe.! Duluth, Feb. 28.—0n Tuesday night the common council of Duluth, despite the pro test of the chamber of commerce and nearly all the taxpayers of the city, passed an ordi nance giving to the Duluth Railway Transfer and Dock company, a speculating company organized here, the valuable franchise of right of way across the bay of Duluth and lands under water, which will be worth many hundred thousand dollars when im proved. A committee of twenty-five of the chamber of commerce has been working ever since to defeat the scheme, and now claim to possess positive evidence that two and per haps four members of the council were cor rupted. This evening an injunction to re strain Mayor Graves from signing the ordi nauce was granted by Judge Steams and served. This kills the plans of the scheme, and people are greatly elated.

CONGRESSIONAL The Pleuro-Pneumoiiia Bill Car ried in the House of Representatives. Eulogies Passed to the Memory of Rep resentative Haskell. A Lively Debate on the Building of Steel Cruisers. The Secretary of the Navy Comes in For a The Senate. Senator Ingalls introduced a bill to remove the injunction of secrecy from the court martial tha£ tried Gen. Fitz John Porter, in order that the members of it may give the de tails to the public, and testify to the case if called upon. The senate resumed consideration of the bill to authorize the construction of steel ves sels. Senators McPherson, Jones, Florida, and Miller, took part in the debate. The latter wa3 in favor of making a liberal appropria tion for building a navy. He was in favor of constructing American men-of-war from American material, by American workmen, and to be manned by American seamen. The United States should be prepared to meet the encroachments of those who may become jealous of her progress*. The example of a free government and free institutions is spreading the contagion of free thought and freedom of action among all people of the globe, and is engendering the instinct of hatred, malice and unfriendli ness of the imperialists and monarchists throughout the world. He wanted to see America ready to resent any insults which might be heaped upon her, come from what quarter they might. Senator Bayard reviewed the action of con gress the last few years, and contended it was impossible for the senators to ignore the fact that there was, for one reason or another, a great deal of distrust in the head of the navy department. In the opinion of many, the incumbent of that position was not "a wise one. This was not a question of per sonal assault, but of the fitness of the person for the place. There was nothing in the an tecedents or the acquirements of the individ ual referred to, that rendered his selection wise. He would be reluctant to give pain to any man, but these were public questions, .md should be dis cussed in a plain, open and public manner. It was in no other spirit he referred to this subject. It was partly for this reason that congress placed a restriction upon building the ships now in course of construction. Senator Hale here remarked, he had given notice of an amendment to the pending bill, which would throw the protection act of 1882 and 18S3 around the ships now pro posed, and that the amendment was itself suggested by the secretary of the navy. Hale then offered as a substitute for tin amendment of MePhersou the following: "And said vessels shall be designed and constructed in all respects iv accordance with and subject to the conditions aud pro visions of the naval appropriation acts of August 5, 1882, and March 3, 1883, authorizing the constructiou of four steel cruisers." Senator McPherson objected to the amend ment at this time, and it went over. Senator Hawley stated he, for one, while public rumor had been busy with the proba bility of the appointment of the present sec retary of the navy, had ventured to prophecy that he would prove one of the ablest officers on a very illustrious roll of the heads of that department. As to that prophecy, Hawley had now nothing to take back. The distin guished ability of the secretary of the navy was well known and when his duties were closed his record would compare favorably with- that of any secretary who had ever filled the office. After further debate a vote was taken on McPherson's first amend ment reducing the number of proposed ships from seven to four. It was defeated; yeas 17, nays 34. The question recurring on McPherson's second amendment, which provides the conditions under which contracts should be made, Senator Hale offered the amendment above set forth. Senator Sewell offered as a substitute for both, an amendment providing that the ves sels be built at one or more of the govern ment navy yards. The chair stated the substitute was not, at this time, in order. The vote was then taken on the amendment of Hale to the amend ment of McPherson, and Hale's amendment was agreed to. The question recurring on McPherson's amendment, as so amended, was agreed to. Senator Sewell then presented his substi tute. Jones, of Florida, offered an amend ment to it, providing that the construction of the vessels should be apportioned between the different navy yards of the country. The House of Representative* Washington*, Feb. 28.—Mr. Deuster, rising to a question of privilege, sent to the clerk's desk, and had read a resolution adopted by the executive committee of the Liberal un ion of the German parliament, expressing its appreciation, of the action of the house of representatives in passing resolutions in honor of Edward Lasker. It was stated the question was not one of privileges, but by unanimous consent Deuster was permited to continue. He said the executive committee of the Liberal union expressed the sentiments of the people of Germany. The spectacle here presented was peculiar as seen through American eyes. Prince Bismarck the autocrat of the German empire was the embodiment of an idea antagonistic to American institutions. He had returned the Lasker resolutions that it might stand to the prejudice of the German people, but the res olution of the liberal union contradicted that assumption from a cis-Atlantic standpoint. Death broke down all political feeling, and in the presence of the open grave the Universal Brotherhood of man was the in spiration of the hour. The same was true of the Germans as a people, and if they were misrepresented by a man in the place of power, they had no other mode of setting themselves right before the world than by resolutions of the liberal union. In presenting this resolution in his official place, as a member of this body, as a native of Germany and an adopted citizen of the United States, he de sired to express his earnest conviction that the action of the liberal union was the true index of united Germany, and the action of Prince Bismarck would not rise above the dignity of the matter, and personal vexation in. no way affect the kindly relations now ex isting between the two nations. It might be premature now to criticise the action of Prince Bismarck, but when the official infor mation thereof was in possession of the house he would endeavor to show that the Lasker resolutions were entirely kind and proper. Mr. Guenther denied that the people of Germany were hostile to this country, or its institutions, or that the letter of Prince Bismarck, returning the Lasker resolution reflected the sentiment of that people. They did not approve his discourtesy, neither did they endorse his au tocratic action in prohibiting the importation of American products. Mr. Kasson regretted that the incidents re ferred to should be made any in|degree a sub ject of debate. In his opinion the house would better consult its dignity by waiting until some official communication had reached it, so that no reflection would be cast when it was informed that the interests or honor of the country had bei n aTeeted and there would be, no doubt, a perfect ac cord between the two sides of the house touching the action to be taken. He would move to refer the resolution presented by Mr. Deuster to the committee on foreign af fairs. It was so ordered. The house resumed the consideration of the pleuro-pneumonia bill, pending the amend ment being that reported from the committee of the whole, striking out the 4th section, the quarantine section. The amendment was agreed to. Mr. Randall offered a resolution recommit ting the bill, with instructions to the com mittee on agriculture to report a bill which shall embrace a more thorough system of inspection, to the end that no diseased cattle shall be exported, and, further, a bill to organize a jnor? strict quarantine against th,e importa tion of diseased animals, and to make men regulations as will secure by the states such legislation as will eradicate pleuro pneu monia, and other contagious diseases, and give the committee leave to report at any time. Mr. Calkins, Indiana, inquired, whether in the present state of the business, the ef fect of this resolution would not be to kill the bill utterly. Mr. Randall denied emphatically that such would be its effect. It was not a destruct ive motion, but one which would tend to put the bill in the proper constitutional shape. Mr. Hatch, Missouri, "The bill is in con stitutional shape now." Mr. Randall demanded the yeas and nays, and the resolution was rejected, yeas 139, nays 145, so the house refused to recommit the bill. The affirmative vote was cast by the Re publicans, and the following named Dt-mc* crats : Alexander, Graves, Neece, Beach, Creen, O'Neill (Mo.) Bland, Hatch (Mo), Pnsey, Breckenridge, Hewitt (N*. V.)

Fyan, Muldrow, Geddes, Murphy, The only Republicans who voted in tba negative were Holton, O'Hara and York. The bill as passed provides that the commis sioner of agriculture shall organise a bureau on animal industry, and appoint a chief, thereof, whose duty it shall be to investigate and report upon the number, nature and con dition of the domestic animals of the United States, and also the causes of contugious and communicable diseases among them, and means for the prevention and cure of the same. He is authorized to appoint two compe tent agents, whose duty shall be to report up on the best methods of treating, transport ing and caring for animals, uud the means to be adopted for the suppression and extir pation of contagious pleuro-pueumouia. The bill further provides, that the eonimi* sion on agriculture may expend .<o much ot the money appropriated by this act as may be necessary iv paying for animals it ll deemed necessary to daughter, and in such disinfection and other means as may be nec essary to extirpate the disease. The authori ties of the state shall pay one-half of the ex pense of the animals it "is deemed necessary to slaughter, and one-half of the cost of dis infection and care of the herds of cattle. It prohibits the transpor tation from one state to another any live stock affected with any contagion^ or iuf<_'<-ti'.'U-i discastrs, and provides for tht prosecution of any person violating this pro* bibition. $250,000 was appropriated tocarry Into effect the. provisions of the bill. Thu bill then passed, yeas 155, nay< 1-7. Public business was suspended, and the house proceeded to pay appropriate tribute to the memory of the Hun. D. C. Haskell, late representative from Kansas. Mr. Ryan reviewed the early life of his colleague, and the purity and kindliness oi his private relation. In later years his legis lative duties were performed with honesty, ability and energy, which rendered his death a national calamity, aud cause his state l<» bow down in sorrow before its great bereate* ment. Mr. Kelley expressed deep regret aud sor row at the loss which the house had sustained of the enlightened und courageous legislator. He bore testimony to the ability which fla.s kail had displayed, iv taking that Change of tariff bill, which a hideous disease hud pre vented him, as the chairman of the commit tee on ways und means, from assuming, but now his vigorous youth had gone, the diseased old man was restored to health and lived to mourn the loss of his gifted young color bearer. Further addresses were made by Tucket, Keifer, McKiuley, Rice, Russell, Brown, Burns, Pettibone and Perkins. Hanback re viewed an intimate acquaintance of sixteen years with the deceased, and said he had never heard him say an unkind word of auy man. Mr Belford promised his eulogistic re marks with a fine comparison and contem plation of the mysteries of life aud death. He expressed his supremo sorrow at the death, in the prime of life, of one possessing such noble qualities as did Mr. HaskelL At the conclusion of the eulogies, the house, as a mark of respect to the memory ol the de ceased, adjourn#d. Well Done, Green. Richmond, Va., Feb. 28.—1n the hou3e, Armistead Green, colored, rose to a question of privilege, regarding the statement of Con gressman Wise. He said,"l am here to say, as far as I am concerned, I never had any transactions with this gentleman, Wise, in my life. I say to Mr. Wise, as I do to the white population of this country, that he never wants to use the colored people for anything but their votes. I never expect to visit him in his parlor, in his kitchen, or in his stable." IMX7SEMKHTS. THEATRE OOMIQUE. 819, 221, 223 First Aye. South. W. W. BROWN Bole Proprietor. JAMES WHEELEB Manager.
