'Temphill offered an amendment to See-. _i'ti •! n| the bill to insert the words "ex cept Section 1 of the Revised Statutes of the Uuitfd States." lie explained that the sec tion of the bill empowered the supervisors to use the army and nnvy at the polls, and the purpose of his amendment was to elimi nate that provision. ■ Lodge denied the bill bad any such effect as stated. mount of Georgia said the bill provided for the appointment of partisan super visors, and surrounded those supervisors with United States soldiers at their beck and cull, to make voters feel they wore un der the terrors of military authority. McKiniey of Ohio said the amendment would take from the President all the power he had to enforce judicial processes. The bill would be destroyed if the Government were deprived of the right to use the Fed eral power to execute judicial processes un der the proposed measure Ileinphill's amendment was lost— ayes HO, noes 135. Springer moved to lay the bill on the table and thus defeat it. The motion was beaten— ayes 149, noes 155. The only Republicans to voto in favor of the motion were Ooleman of Louisiana and Lehlbach :of New Jersey. Kwart of North Carolina, another bolter, paired with Simonds of Connecticut. Springer, before the vote was announced, changed from aye to no, and moved to re consider. Kuwell of Illinois moved to lay that mo tion on the table. Carried— ayes 153, uoes 148. McKinli-y said that no honest man -could object to the bill. It was said the bill would be expensive— would cost millions. It was assumed that the 330 districts of the country would invoke the operation of the law, and there was not a man who did not know that not 100 districts would invoke its operation. Tney would diminish the cost of the administration of the law in the ratio in which they diminished fraudulent voting, false counting, ballot-box stuffing and suppression of votes. [Republican ap plause.] It would cost nothing if there was no need of it. The question would not rest till it was done. It was the duty of the nation to enforce the Constitution and laws of the United Stated. Let the gentlemen on the other side obey them as the Ropub licaus had obeyed them. The people of the North would not permit two vcjtes in the South to count as much as live votes in the North, [Republican applause. J McMillin of Tennessee said the Republi cans might like madmen grasp the pillars of the Constitution and pull down the edi fice, but like Samson they would perish in the wreck. If he could register a wish in heaven he would ask nut for an extension of the nation's boundaries or a multiplica tion of territory, not lor fluffing rivers and fertile fields, but that the man who laid violent hands upon the Constitution might drop dead as did tho sacrilegious Jew who laid impious hands upon the ark of tho Covenant. [Democratic applause] Perkins of Kansas and La toilette of Wisconsin made eloquent pleas in favor of the bill. The hour of 2 o'clock haying arrived the Speaker declared the previous question and ordered the bill and pending amendment. Springer moved to lay the bill on the ta ble, which was lost— 148, noes 116. Springer changed his vote from the af firmative to the negative in order to move a reconsideration. This upon motion of Rowell was laid on the table— ayes 153, noes 143. The vote . then recurred on IlemphiU's amendment relative to the use of troops at the polls, and it was rejected— ayes 140, noes lot!. Springer (having voted in the negative) moved a. reconsideration. The motion was tabled. Springer moved to lay the bill on the ta ble, stating that his former motion was to table the bill and pending amendment. The Sneaker ruled the motion out ol or der. . . Springer appealed, and the appeal was laid on the table— ayes 156, noes 140. Springer, having voted in the affirmative, moved a reconsideration. Grosvenor made the point of order that this was a dilatory motion, a point which was sustained by the Speaker. : Springer appealed, but the Speaker de clined to entertain the appeal. Springer protested that this was the first time in the history of the Government that a motion to reconsider had not been recog nized, but his voice was drowned in the calls for the regular order from the Republicans. Springer moved to adjourn. Lost— ayes 147, noes 157. -^«S3««U* ' ' ■ Tne bill was ordered engrossed and read the third time— 157, noes 148. Hemphill moved to recommit the bill. Lost— 14\ noes 15(3. .

Springer demanded ~ the reading of the engrorssed bill, but , the Speaker was pre pared for this demand, the bill having been engrossed in advance, aud a burst ol ap plause came from the Republican side when the Clerk began reading. Two hours were consumed in its reading. The question then recurred on the pass age of the bill. As the call was In progress tlie greatest interest was manifested on both sides. As Colemau cast his vote with the Democrats he was greeted with cheers from that side of tne House, and re-enforced with cheers when Lehlbach also cast his vote against the measure. The Republicans retaliated in kind, and as the "Southern Republicans— ilouk and Taylor of Tennessee, Waddil and Mudd of Maryland and Wilson of Kentucky, recorded their votes in the affirmative, cheer after cheer was given. The bill was passed— ayes 155, noes 149. The House then, at 9:25 o'clock, adjourned. THE SENATE. A Law-Firm's Scheme Blocked— Debate on ihe St- ■im-hip Subsidies. Washington, July 2.— ln the Senate this morning Plumb, from tho Committee on Public Lands, reported the Seuate bill to provide for the delivery of land patents to their rightful owners and asked for its im" mediate consideration. Statements were made by Plumb, Pad dock and iierry that thete were some 250, --000 land patents accumulated in the Central Land Office for which those entitled to them had not applied ;*that a thrifty linn of Washington attorneys had been permitted to have lists made of them ; that they had then communicated with persons entitled to them, notifying them that they could get their patents on the payment of a certain lee; that this was an act of collusion be tween the Assistant Commissioner, who was then As.sisant Secitary <if tho Interior acting as Coniuiissiouer, and this law firm, and that the bill was designed to frustrate that job. Tlie bill was then passed. It" directs the Secretary of the Interior to send to the Recorder of Deeds iv each city in which the lands so patented lie, lists of the land patents in that county which have been In the General Laud Office uncalled for twelve months. Hiscock called up his motion to recon sider the vote by which the Senat-) yester day refused to recede from its amendments to the Legislative Appropriatiou Bill. The motion was agreed to, and after a debate the Senate receded from the amend ments. The bill now goes to the President. The. Senate proceeded with the considera tion of two Senate bilis reported from the Committee on Commerce, to place the American merchant marine engaged in foreign trade upon an equality with that of other nations, and to piovide for ocean mail security of service between the Uuited States and foreign ports, and to promote the service. Frye said the first bill was a bounty on tonnage, aud the second was known as the Postal Subsidy Bill. He declared that un less Congress did something to aid Ameri can ships, and that speedi<y, tliere would soon not be v single steamship line travers ing the ocean carrying the American nag. lie was not going to discuss the tariff in connection with the bills. There (referring to the An..), icau carrying trade) was a dead body, and he wanted to know whether it was worth while to resurrect it and bring life into it. He could not understand the innermost thoughts and feelings of American citizens who could listen to the statement of facts about the foreign carry ing trade, and not feel an impulse to go back once more on the ocean, where the United States stood in such proud con spicuousness thirty years ago. The Amer ican carrying trade was dead for want of protection. It was the only great Ameri can industry of which the same could be said. The people of the Uuited States had paid 850,(10 ',ux)O to keep alive the sugar industry of the United States; 80,000,000 a year would revive the dead body of the Ameri can merchant marine aud keep it on the ocean. Ye.it addressed the Senate in opposition to the subsidy bills. The foreign carrying power was languishing and almost dead, but bo was the cattle trade, and yet, if he was to propose a subsidy for the cattle trade tne proposition would be attacked as the most monstrous ever heard. He went ou to speak of the Pan-American Congress as a "chestnut" and a back number. It was mil I tii.iiU: up when the Harrison .idminls tration came into existence, and tho restless and ambitious spirit of the present Secre tary of State settled upon it and concluded to parade it before the country aud gain a treat aud pheuomiual victory. The Republican party has always advocated the necessity of doing away with foreign commerce, lint a sudden and marvelous change had come. The Senator from M«ine wanted to give a subsidy to vessels engaged in the foreign trade, so as to bring about increased trade, not only with South American States, but also with all the European countries and the vvotld at large. The effect, Vest said, of subsidizing any particular line was to discourage all others. Vest yielded the Uoor without concluding his speech, and Frye said he hoped to havo the Senate net to-morrow on both bills, as be intended to call up the River aud Harbor Bill Monday. After an executive session the Senate adjourned. LAND GRANTS. The President Urges the Settlement of Cer- titin Mexican Claims. W t asuinoton, July 2.— The President has transmitted to Congress the correspond ence between tlie Department of State aud the Mexican Government concerning the rights of certain Mexican citizens to have their claims to laud iv Arizona aud New Mexico ceded to the United States by treaty adjusted aud confirmed. The United States, says ttie Presideut, owes a duty to Mexico to confirm to her citizens those valid grants that were saved by treaty, and the lung delay which has atteuded the dis charge of this duty has given just cause for complaint. The entire comiuuuity where llie-i- large claims exist, aud indeed all of our people, are interested iv the early and Bull] settlement of them. No greater in cubus can rest upon the energies of a peo ple or the development of a iipw country than that resulting from unsettled laud titles. The necessity for legislation is so evident and urgent that 1 venture to ex press thu hope that relief will be given at the present session of Congress. THE NATIONAL JDIiBT.

Washington, July 2.— The couferreos on the Silver Bill met this morning and spent an hour discussing the differences between the two Houses. They separated at noon, having come to no conclusion. It is said there ware three propositions presented for consideration. Thellouse conferrees brought to the meeting a copy of the bill as it passed that body, and this formed the basis of whatever discussion took place. A great portion ol the time was spent in general talk, with no definite proposition before them. The conference was satisfactory iv tone and tendency to the members. Laud Dec.sons. Washington, July 2.— The Secretary of the Interior has affirmed the decision of the Land Commissioner in rejecting the proof offered by George 11. liegeman, Louis Toellner, George Toellner, George Ellis and William L. Uorncr in support of their pre-emption declaratory statements alleg ing settlement upon separate Quarter sec tions of land in the. Vancouver (Wash.) Dis trict. The proof was unsatisfactory, meager and incomplete. Assistant Secretary Chan dler has aflirmed the decision of the Land Commissioner in holding Rudolph Miller's entry to a tract of land in the Spokane Falls District for cancellation, because he was not a bona fide settler. Secretary Noble lias dismissed tho appeal of Alvin Richmond from the decision of the Laud Commissioner* in deciding against Rich mond's claim involving a quarter section of land in the North Yakima Land District, Washington, to which the Northern Pacific Company also made claim.
