It Passes the House by a Small
The KanRmptry Bill Next Considered In
the Houne, While the Senate Give At
tention to Indian Appropriation
Other Capital New.
"Washington, July 23. The house be
gan voting on the "original package"
bill as soon as the reading of the journal
was concluded. The first vote was on
Adams' substitute defining original
packages. Rejected Yeas, 33; nays,
115. The next vote was on the house
substitute for the senate bill, which pro
vides that whenever any article
of commerce is imported into any
state from any other state
territory or foreign nation, and there
held or offered for sale, it shall be sub
ject to the laws of that state, provided
that no discrimination shall be made by
any state in favor of citizens of that
state against citizens of any other state,
nor shall the transportation of com
merce through any other state be ob
structed, except in necessary enforce
ment of the health laws of that state.
As the vote proceeded it appeared the
result was in doubt, and there was great
excitement. At the end of the first call
there was an affirmative majority of one.
At the second call the majority was the
same, but a number of members changed
their votes, and the vote, as announced,
was: yeas, 109; nays, 94.
Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio, who had
changed his vote for the purpose, moved
a reconsideration.
Mr. Frank of Missouri moved to table
the motion and this was done. A vote
was then taken on the passage of the
bill as amended, and resulted in yeas
113, nays 97.
The vote was as follows:

The bankruptcy bill was then taken
up. Mr. Kelly of Kans;us inquired
whether, under the provisions of the
bill, lawyers only could be appointed
referees. Mr. Buchanan made anamrin
ative response. Mr. Kelly suggested
that it was not right to discriminate
against farmers.and he was one himself,
and business men who were not mem
bers of the bar. Mr. Buchanan (speak
ing, he said, from personal experience)
gave it as his opinion that the worst
thing that could befall a farmer was to
quit farming and practice law. But
the fact was that the referees had judi
cial functions to perform. Mr. Kelly
suggested that all who were qualified
to make the law (and who might be
president of the United States) are
competent to execute the law without
being a lawyer.
Mr. Oates of Alabama opposed the
bill, at the same time frankly admitting
that it was one of the most carefully
considered bankruptcy measures ever
brought before congress. But the act
of 18)7 had been so completely debauched
and mal-administered in the south, and
so much fraud and perjury had been
committed under it that the very word
bankruptcy had become a stench in the
nostrils of honest men in that section.
Mr. Boatner, of Louisiana, and Mr.
Hayes, of Iowa, gave a modified support
to the bill, advocating ine general wuur
of the measure

A paragraph having been reached in

by Mr. Pettigrew to strike out South

that no more Indians were wanted
there. After discussion the names of
the three states were struck out, and
the jstragraph was changed so as to

Anio2 tLi uuaer amendments re

of their civilization from S50.000 to
$950,00; inserting an item of f 150,000

three million dollars provided for a
permanent fund in the act of March 2,
1889, being an act to divide a portion of
the Sioux reservation m Dakota and for
the relinquishment of the Indian title to
the remainder.
Having disposed of thirty-two pages
of the bill (exactly one half) the senate
laid the bill aside.

Tlie Work of Gathering Them Will Be
Completed by Aug. 7.
Washington, July 23. George K.
Holmes, special agent in charge of the
Eleventh division of the census office,
whk:h has the compilation of statistics
relating to the recorded indebtedness of
farms and homes, reports that the field
work is now nearly finished. The ex
perts at works in this division have been
collecting statistical information since
last autumn. They have visited capi
tals, county seats and other cities and
towns where records of indebtedness
are kept, and much has been trans
cribed. The field work in nearly all the
states is now done. The examination of
the records in Kansas and Nebraska is
complete. The figures showing the re
corded indebtedness of Missouri farms
and homes have all been taken, except
in one county. This wijl be finished in
a few days. Illinois ft also finished.
California has a few counties in which
the work is not quite done, and there is
one, county remaining in Maryland. It
is expected to complete the collection of
statistics by Aug. 1, and the entire force
of this division will be put upon the
office works. It will be some weeks be
fore any results can be announced, and
as fast as the figures relating to a state
are compiled they will be published in
bulletin form by the superintendent.
Paddock Makes a Statement.
Washington, July 23. The an
nouncement made in several papers that
Senator Paddock will under no circum
stances vote for any federal election bill
proves to be unauthorized and unfound
ed. Senator raddock has been confined
to his bed for five days past, and last
night emphatically denied that he had
given out any such statement to the
press. "I believe," he said, "that con
sideration of the tariff bill is of para
mount importance, and I am not in
favor of any election bill modeled on
the lines of the Lodge bill. I can not
even say that I deem the passage of
any bill interfering in elections in the
states an act of wisdom or of party ex
pediency at the present time. But I do
not say, and have not said, that I would
vote against any federal election bill in
the senate. You can deny that state
ment emphatically."
Census Reports.
Washivgton, July 23. Superintend
ent Porter has presented to Secretary
Noble the request of the citizens of
Kansas City that the first count of the
population of that city be regarded as
the official count, and he recommends
that this request be granted. As a re
sult of the recount of a number of dis
tricts in that city the returns showed a
population of 1,200 less than was ascer
tained by the first count. A recount of
some of the districts in Milwaukee has
been completed. The total population
is shown to be 206,308, an increase since
the census of 1880 of 90.721.
Georgia Saloon in Danger.
Atlanta, Ga., July 23. There is
going to be a big fight in the next legis
lature for the suppression of bar rooms
in Georgia. A general law making it
illegal to sell whisky in quantities less
than one quart will be asked for. Five
thousand petitions are now being cir
culated over the state, and 1,500 minis
ters are at work for the law. Judge
John D. Cunningham of Atlanta is one
of the leaders in the movement, and he
and his co-laborers are very much in
earnest. The gentlemen who are at the
head of this movement think now is the
time to press their bill. The original
package decision has made the liquor
question a new issse. They also base
hopes on the fact that the Farmers'
Alliance is against barkeepers.
A New Iowa Railroad.
Sioux City, la., July 23. The Sioux
City and Northwestern is a new railroad
company whose articles o .incorporation
were filed Tuesday. Preparations for
building the road have been in progress
since the completion of the Sioux City
and Northern, which was built by the
same parties. The road will run from
Sioux City west across Nebraska and
the Sioux reservation to the Black Hills,
for the special purpose of carrying cat
tle. The fact that John F. Duncombe,
who is attorney for the Illinois Central,
will be president of the new road, is re
garded as significant.
All Serene in Central America.
New Obleans, July 23. " '
fe-neval Martinez or Uuatemiila, has re
ceived a cablegram from the Guate
malan minister to Mexico, stating that
there has been no battle between Guate

Duluth regatta the attendance was
nearly double that of the day previous.
The open amateur junior fours was
rowed over again by order of the
referee, with the Lurlines barred. It
resulted in a narrow but 6plendid vic
tory for the Minnesota, with the
Duluths a close second, the St. Pauls
third and the Winnipegs played out
near the finish and stopped rowing.
The time was 10:20, 10:83 and 10:40,
the Winnipegs distanced. On account
of a 6light foul by the St. Paul crew,
the race will be again rowed in the
morning and the St. Pauls barred. In
the senior amateur singles Corbett of
the Catlin club of Chicago was an easy
winner over Pearson of the Duluths.
Time, 12:30 and 12:35. The senior dou
bles were won easily by the Minnesotas
of St. Paul, 10:55i, the Lurlines sec
ond in 11:07, and the Winnipegs third
in 11:26. The Catlins got away off
their course by mistake and lost the

and picked crew. The race was three
miles with turn and was the most mag
nificent exhibition of four-oar work
?ver seen in any country.
The start was even, the boats leaping
forward with the following stroke:
Hanlan, 36; Ross, 42; Eries, 37; Gandaur,
42; West Ends, 34. It soon became
evident that the race was between the
Gandaur and Hanlan crews for first and
second place, and the Eries and Rots
for third money. Toward the first
quarter the leaders 6pun, reaching" to
gether in 4:37, Hanlan's crew slightly
ahead at the turn in 8:55. The 3-4
stake in 13:14 was made by Gaudaur's

rear. The finish was: Gaudaur's crew,
18:W: Hanlan's, 18:08; Eries, 18:31; Ross
about 18:39; the West Ends being
distanced. If the water had been
smoother after the turn, all world's
record would have been beaten. Promi
nent oarsmen say the race was the most
exciting ever rowed, the differences
between the leaders at the finish being
abont three-fourths of a length.

Yesterday was a great day for Weep
ing Water, the colored people of Omaha
and Lincoln joining in a picnic there.
As there was no reporters out from this
city, we are not informed whether ex
Mayor Gibson or Wooley cut the pigeon
wing with '"Hiawatha Liz.' But at any
event the freedom of the city was tender
ed the picnicera and a grand time is reported.
