Th Honw Talk a Day Away WUbobS
Kesalt c:-.rnrii Approartotlas: 7.
Wasuiacox, April 14. When, the House
met yesterday the clerk began to read the
journal of the. legislative day of Wednes
day, April -J, consisting of ninety manu
script pages, exclusive of the twentjone
rolls, but Mr. Dockory, of Missouri,' asked
unanimous consent to dispense with the
reading, whereupon Mr. E. B. Taylor and
Mr. Grosvcnor interposed objections. They
did not, however, demand reading of the
roll calls in full, as such would occupy two
or three days. Tho clerk then read tho
skeleton outline of the journal. This con
turned exactly one hour.
A large number of executive documents
which had accumulated upon the Speak
er's desk during tho deadlock were then
laid beforo the House and appropriately re
ferred. On motion or Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, the
Senate amendments were concurred in tc
tho bill authorizing the construction of a
bridge across the Tennessee river at Chat
Mr. Blount, of Georgia, from the Com
mittee on Post-ofilces and Post-roads, re
ported tho Post-ofHco Appropriation bill
and it was referred to tho Committee of the
Whole; Mr. Peel, of Arkansas, the con
ference report on the bill to ratify an
agroemsnt with the Gros Ventres, Picgan,
Blood, Blackfcct and River Creek Indians
in Montana, and tho conference report
upon tbo bill dividing tho great Sioux
reservation into smaller reservations, both
of which were agreed to.
The Spoaker then proceeded to call the
committees for reports of privato charac
ter, and a large number were submitted
and placed upon the private calendar.
The remainder of the day was spent is
Committee of the Wholo in the discussion
of a bill for the payment of a claim of $700
for tho occupation of certain property in
Memphis by United States troops in 1864.
No action was taken on the bill, but the
House took a recess until 7:30 o'clock.
The House at its evening session passed
fifty-live pcubion bills.
Dr. ltarker In Ilia Ilulletin Thinks They

New VoitK. April 14. Mrs.. Ccnkling, at
8:15 o'clock this morning, said that her
husband had passed another comfortablo
nisht. The only times be awoke was when
caTlcd upon to take his medicine, which he
did more readily than usual. Ho partook
of considerable nourishment. Mrs. Conk
ling says the doctors are giving her the
most cheerful assurances of the chances
now being in favor of Mr. Conkling.
At 8:45 this morning Drs. Barker and
Sands called at the house. They remained
in the sick room about a quarter of an
hour. When coming out Dr. Barker said:
"The alarming symptoms which (exhibited
themselves yesterday have entirely disap
peared. I feel very much reassured. Mr.
Conkling passed a comparatively easy
night, althcugh he is a little weaker this
mornii.g. He slept most of the time during
Iho night. When ho wakes up ho appears
to be much more intelligent than hereto
fore." Dr. Sands dressed tho wound. There was
a slight discharge of pus. Mr. Conkiing's
pulso was 02 and the temperature 100 1-5.
The respiration was natural, at about IS
when he slept and 20 while awake.
Dr. Barker, in his 12:3) p. m. bulletin,
says: "If Mr. Conkling improves as much
in the next twenty-four hours as be did
since the morning visit bis chances of re
covery will be about even. His tempera
ture was lbt. exactly normal, and his
pulse is S4. Every thing is satisfactory.
The patient has slept well and taken plenty
of nourishment. He took a quart of koumiss
since ten o'clock this morning."
Chicago, April 14. A crew of Burling
ton switchmen went to the Western ave
nue yards of the St. Paul road late yester

Upon its arrival thero some St. Puul
switchmen aud a lot of outsiders began
to pull coupling pins, and throw them
away as fast as the Burlington switch
men could replace them. Tho police
attempted to protect the "Q"' men and
finally made some arrests. By thia time n
crowd of about a hundred ha.l gathered
and the crowd did not propose to see any
body taken to the station. Tl.cy rescued

Programme For the Week

Washington-, April 1C The tariff and
the appropriation bills aro to be the busi
ness of the House during the week, if the
declarations of the majority managers are
To- day, however, motions to suspend the
rules will be in order, under a call of com
mittees. In this event, Mr. Crisp, in behalf
of the Commerce Committee, will ask the
House to pass, under a suspension of the
rules, tbo bill to extend the time for the
completion of the bridge across States
Island Sound, and Chairman Blancbard, of
tho River and Harbor Committee, will seek
to put the River and Harbor Appropria
tion bill through in tho samo way.
But in the rush for precedence a
clash is possible among the different
committees having appropriation bills
In charge and it is the intention of at least
eno committee to endeavor to displace the
regular "committee suspension day" with
an appropriation bill to bo pushed to pas
sage in a single day.
Nowhere is there any expressed Inten
tion to prevent the carrying out of Mr.
Mills' announcement that bo will ask the
House to enter upon the consideration of
the Tariff bill Tuesday. He is said to have
improved in health, but some doubt is felt
as to whether he lias sufficiently recovered
to undertake the work he had reserved for
bimsclf or opening the debate, and as to
whether the Committee on Ways and
Means will assume the responsibility of en
tering upon the subject in his absence.
The weight of opinion, however, in
clines to the belief that the Tariff bill
will be taken up at tho timo announced.
Should there be any change in tho pro.
gramme concerning tho tariff question the
week will bo consumed in the considera
tion of appropriation bills, with possible
interruptions in favor of special orders for
the consideration of labor bills and
measures reported by the Committee on
Agriculture. Saturday has been set apart
for further discussion of the General Land
The Senate will probably spend the en
tiro week upon the Animal Industry and
Dakota bills. It is expected that in view of
the prospective tariff debate in the House,
the Senate will act in quite a leisurely
manner upon all matters coming beforo it
for some time.
Washington, April IGl When theHouso
met Saturday Mr. Randall, of Pennsyl
vania, from tho Committee on Appropria
tions, reported the Legislative, Executive
and Judicial Appropriation bill, and it was
referred to the Committee of the Whole;
Mr. Robertson, of Louisiana, from the
Committee on Military Affairs, the bill for
the relief of soldiers and sailors who en
listed or served in the army or navy during
tbe rebellion under assumed names; Mr.
Mcllae, of Arkansas, from the Committee
on Public Lauds, the Senate bill to relieve
purchasers of aud to indemnify certain
States for swamp and overflowed land; Mr.
Gallicger, of New Hampshire, Committee
on Invalid Pensions, the bill granting in
creased pensions to soldiers who had lost
both hands; Mr. Byiium, of Indiana, from
the sr.tno committee, with amendments,
tho Senate bill grauting pensions to ex
soldiers and sailors incapacitated lor the
performance of labor and providing pen
sions for dependent relatives of deceased
soldiers and sailors; Mr. Wiiitthorne, of
Tennessee, from the Committee on Indian
Depredation Claim, the bill to provide for
tho aJ judical ion and payment or claims
arising from Indian depredations; and Mr.
Baitic, of Pennsylvania, from the Commit
tee on itivcrs and Harbors, tho bill de
claring the IoiV.i river below Wpallo not
a navigable stream.
In the morning hour tbe IIouso proceeded,
in Committee of the Whole, to the consid
eration of a bill authorizing tho Secretary
of tho Treasury to settlo and pay tho clnini
of the State of Florida on account of ex
penditures made m suppressing Indian hos
tilities. The bill went over without action.
The consideration of tho Hou2C3tctd bill
having been postponed until next Saturday
tho House went into 'Committee of tho
Whole on the Indiau Appropriation bill.
Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, said that tho bill
presented no hcw legislation, but it did
contain a provision lor me payment oi mo
Choctaw judgment. The claim of tho In
dians had been referred to the Court of
Claims, which had rendered a judgment
against the Government and that judgment
bad been affirmed by the Supremo Court.
It amounted to $2,S00,OO3 and was now
drawing five per cent., and ho could see no
relief for tho Government except by an act
of repudiation. Therefore the Committee
on Indian Affairs had provided for tho pay
ment of the judgment.
Then passing from the subject of Indians
Mr. Perkins addressed himself to the ques
tion of the tariff. He was replied to bj
Mr. Alienor Mississippi, and others.
Mr. Joseph, of New Mexico, spoke in
favor of tbo admission of New Mexico as a
State into the Union.
The Iudian bill was then considered by
sections, but without finishing the consid
eration of the bill tho committed roso and
tho House adjourned.
