A Soi'thcrner Makes Pointed
Reply to Senator Hoar.
The limine I'lissew u Substitute for the
Senate Measure, Opening th Cherokee
Outlet am! Naming the Nehranka Code
nit I. aw for the New Territory.
Wasitincitos, March 14. In the sen
ate 1 ills were passed for public buildings
at Stockton, Colo., $50,000; Mammoth
Hot Sj iings, in Yillowstone National
Park, $10. ('00; Paw tucket, ll. I.. $100,000;
Woonsockct. R. I., $100,000; Hudson, N.
Y.. $1( 0,000; Virginia City, Nev., $7,000,
Hastings, Neb., $130,000; Tho Dalles,
Ore., $100,000.
Senator Kustis referred to two state
ments made by Mr. Hoar in reference) to
the southern states, one being that in
the stafe of Ixmisiana and in some other
states thre were laws which male it
a penal ofTence fort wihte man to asso
ciate on tei ins of c'..i ility with a black.
' .1 (i.-t tlr-ro w-c- r.f i!-
t.u.ou-.-, i . L.ii; Mi i. 'i i i .-. .o ;; . l.oc
nient. The o her statement of Mr. Hoar
was to the effect that there was anot icr
law in Louisiana which provided for tho
.sale of colored men for a ct r ain time
out of woik, aJid tiiar, the former master
should have the preference in the pur
chase, lie asked Senator Hoar whether
he could find any ! u h l;.w oi the statute
hocks of Louisiana. He (Senator Kiisti.)
knew that tlie criticism was directed
ag,diist the Demo ratio legislature of
Louisiana of ls,s(;-7, but he had never
hea. il a Kepuoiicati senator criticise the
infamous laws enacted in Louisiana by
liepul bcan legislatures. 'Ibere was no
such law, however, as that whicli Mr.
Hoar had referred t , and any pretense
lb-it there as only illustrated with
what recklessness and destitation of
sense of resjn.sibility Republican sena
tors spoke of souther. i affairs.
Senator Hoar said he had erred about
Lousiana, but a law of this character ex
isted in Mis.s.ssippi.
The educati 'iial I ill was t ki n up at
2 o'clock and fv uaior Blair addressed
the senate. At the conclusion of his re
marks Senator Call endeavored to intro
duce a preamble and resolution regard
ing the nominees to certain federal of
fices in I-lorida. hut Senator Chandler
made the point that they referred to ex
ci tive matters.
Senator Sherman asked Mr. Eu-tis
whether he did not know that the
fi.teenth amendment never would have
been proposed i nt lor the fact that the
laws of tiie southern states were depriv
ing tue negro of his rights of citizen
shin. Senator Eintis .assert e 1 that all recon-stru'-tion
measures and constitutional
amendments were adopted by the Re
publican party with the single object of
Africanizing the south and maintaining
political supremacy: and this he charac
terized as the "greatest crime ever com
mitted Hgamsi civilized communities."
Senator Sherman then made a long
speech iu defease of reeonstructio.i
Senator Putler then followed, and
when he had concluded the senate went
into executive session aud at oili p. ui.
In the house the bill passed extending
for three years fhe lime within which
the Dcmson and Ouachita Val ey Rail
road company may construct its ro-d
thiough Indian territory. Bids were
abo passed granting right of way to
railroads as follows: Through the Mill"
Lacs Indian reservation, Minnesota, to
the Little Falls. Millo Lacs and Lake
Superior Railroad company; through
the Indian territory to the Galena,
Guthrie and Western Railroad company ;
through the Nez I'tice, Indian reserva
tion, to the Idaho and Spokane Rail
road company.
The house then went into committer
of the whole on the Oklahoma bill.
On motion of Mr. Tarsney of Missouri
an amendment was adopted for the es
tab idimeiit of a laud ofiije in No Man's
On motion of Mr. Hoi man of Indiana
an amendment was adopted providing
that no pei son having a fee simple to
1G0 acres of land in any state or terri
tory shall be entitled to enter the land
covered by this act. The hour of 4
o'clock having arrived the committee
ro-e and lcported the bill to the house.
The amendment adopted in committee
of the whole, providing that section
VJIjlJ. Revised Statutes (prohibiting the
introduction of intoxicating liquors into
th Indian territory), shall be enforce in
Oklahoma until after the adjournment
of the first session of the legislative as
sembly, w as agreed to yeas. Jo4: nays.
The bill was then passed tOO to 2o.
