IVAsniscTOs, May 15. When the Scnato
got to work yesterday Mr. Stewart offered
a bill proposing an amendment tolho Con
stitution or the United States so as to re
duce from two-thirds to a majority tho vote
in each House overriding Presidential ve
toes. He remarked thattbe time had como
for such a change, and said that he would,
at a convenient time, make some remarks
on the subject.
The House amendments to the Senate
bill for a public building at Youngstown,
0.t were concurred in, and Mr. Hoar, from
the Committee on Privileges and Elections,
to which had been referred certain resolu
tions for a joint convention of tho two
bouses of the Indiana Legislature concern
ing" the election of Mr. Turpie as United
States Senator, made a report and asked
to be discharged from the further consid
eration of tho lesolution and memorials,
thereby conflrming the title of Mr. Turpie
to his seat."
Mr. Vest, from the Committee on Com
merce, reported bills authorizing the con
struction of a railroad bridge across the
Missouri river at Parkville, Ma, and the
construction of a railroad bridge across the
Missouri river at Omaha. He also offered
a resolution for the appointment of a select
committee of five Senators to examine fully
'all questions touching tho meat product of
the United States, aud especially as to the
transportation of beef and cattle and their
sale in tho cattle markets, stock yards and
cities; and whether there existed, or bas
existed, any combination of any kind by
'reason of which the prices paid to the pro
iducer without lessening the cost of meat to
the consumer, the committee to be per
'tnittcd to hold its sessions during the re
cess, at such times and places as it might
determine, with power to send for persons
and papers, to employ a stenographer and
sergeant-at-arms, and report at the next
session. Ho asked that the resolution be
printed and laid on the table.
On motion of Mr. Farwell the Senate bili
to authotize the Baltimore & Potomac Rail
road Company to acquire and use real
estate f cr railway purposes in the District
of Columbia was taken up and debated un
til two p. el, when the Animal Industry
bill was laid before the Scnato as the un
finished business and then the Presiding
Officer, iicumtbly under an order agreed
upon in executive session last Thursday,
ordered the galleries to be closed and the
doors to be closed and the Senate proceed
ed to the consideration of executive busi
ness and when the doors were reopened
The Senate spent three hours in secret
legislative session discussing theKiddle
berger resolution for open consideration of
the Fisheries treaty and the Hoar resolu
tion for a stenographic debate, to bo made
public at the option of the Senate. Both
were defeated the Democrats votes solidly
against them and the Republicans dividing
according to individual preference. The
consideration of the Fisheries treaty was
further postponed till next Monday.
When the House met yesterday Mr. Mills
from the Committee on Rules reported,
and the House adopted without discussion
or division, a resolution providing that the
general debate on the Tariff bill should
Uader the call of 8tates bills were intro
duced and referred: By Mr. Lawler, of
Illinois, authorizing the Secretary of the
Treasury to cause such changes and im

accommodations for the post-office, and by
2tfr. Smith, of Wisconsin, for the location

The House then went into Committee of
the Whole on the Tariff bill and was ad
dressed by Mr. Hatch, of Missouri He said
that he would be derelict in bis duty to the
people, faithless to his constituents and
disloyal to the agricultural interests of the
country, if be neglected to speak earnestly
and plainly in what he conquered a legis
lative cri'i-s in the hittory of tho country.
He extolled the industry of agriculture as
the most honorable occupation of men and
he contended that that industry had borne
more than Us just share of the burden of
Government. No system of taxation cculd
be devised to benefit one class of pooplc
that would not bear with harshness on somo
other class. Tue protective tariff had in
ured to the u-juclitjf the mtnufacturers
Alone and tba farmers and-tho consuming
masses had no stiui e in thoss benefit. A
tax that enriched the manufacturer im
poverished the fjrmers, and tho claim
made by the pro'ectionlsts that tho tariff
duty Jill not increase tho cost or an article
he regarded as too ridiculous to discuss
He was opposed to tho present system of
protection, and ho regretted that, the pend
ing bill preserved every single feature of
that system. The measure was simply a
proposition of modilicatioa aud reduction.
It did not touch the principle involved in
tho Morrill Tariff cct. Ho wished that
there was a bill before the House based
upon a principle or equality and fairness
broader and deeper than was involved
'in the landing proposition. IJut the prin
ciples of proN'ct.on were fastened on
the coui.trv smd all that, could bo hoped
for to-dav mil all that "ho bill sought
to accomplish was the reduction of
ih iiiiinutit or taxation collected
bv the Government and put into the treas-
ufy. Hi: read from a table giving the re-1
ccipts an'i expenditures o; tac vunuis u.i
tions of Europe, and asserted that not one
of them was strong enough to dare to do
what the United States was doing to day
'collecting $100,000,000 from taxation in ex
cess of tbe needs of the Government for
the benefit of a favored class. Tho protec

counti . "iLrfand in refcronco to
tinder a protective tariff, he admitted the
prosperity of thee States, but denied
that the farmers residing therein
had had any share in the gen
eral propoiity. Gentlemen from the
West were asked why that section did not
diversify its interests and become rich like
New England. Tho West did not wish to
get rich in the same manner. Its moral
piano was so high that it rejected with
scorn and contempt the proposition that it
should rob nine men in order to make ono
man rich. Gentlemen representing agricul
tural districts of the West who opposed this
bill would find a storm of indignation
among their constituents when they got
homo. Hospoko for the farmors of tho
Mississippi valley when he declared that
they were almost unanimous in favor of
free wool and a reduction of manufactured
woolen goods. Ho believed that there was
a lair chance of the House passing the mod
erate and conservative measure now pend
ing. Mr. Funston. of Kansas, declared himself
for American interests as against tho bal
ance of th orld. He was a protectionist.
He would protect the United States against
foreign invasion, whether by an armed
force to lay waste tho land or by the prod
ucts of pauper labor to destroy industries
and take away from the American laboring
man his employment. Ho maintained the
proposition that the farmer wanted neither
an English market nor English goods, and
would hail with joy the day when he would
Mr. Stuble, of Iowa, said that among the

attacked the s-ilver dollar, then the green

attained financially, commercially and in

it by the civilized world. The committee

Meeting or the State couTeHtlon Commit
Sedalia, Mo., May 15.-Jfearly all the
delegates to the Republican State conven
tion arrived last night, but all are here to
day. Interest is principally centered in
the matter of tho selection of delegates at
large to the National convention. The
candidates are: Colonel D. P. Dyer and
Chauncev L Filley, of St. Louis; Repre
sentative William Warner, of Kansas City;
Judge A. F. Gray, of Franklin County;
A. C Widdecombe, or Cooper County;
J. B. Upton, of Polk County; F. M. Har
rington, of Adair County; West Jacobs, of
Chillicotbe; Colonel A. C. Dawes, of St.
Joseph, and Boyd Bonaparte, of Spring
field. St. Louis is making every effort to
securo two of the four delegates, and
claims it is necessary to heal the Repub
lican party there. The delegates say they
will carry tho city by 5,000 majority this
fall if they get two of the delegates-at-large.
The prospects this mornning are that no
nominations for State officers will be made
at this convention. The adherents of this
nolicv seem to be largely in the majority.
The delegations from St. Louis, Kansas
City and other large cities of the State
favor making nominations at some future
date, while delegates from the rural dis
tricts are in favor of winding up the busi
The SUte Central Committee held a
meeting last night, and decided on the fol
lowing officers for temporary organization
of the convention: Chairman, H. W. La
mon, ot Sedalia; secretary, F. W. Mott,
St Louis; assistant secretary, C. 8. Cry fr
ier, Kansas City; chaplain, J. J. Wilkins,
Sedalia; sergeant-at-arms, C M. Marshall;
door keeper, John B. Jaynes, Sedalia.
The convention opened at noon with
nraver bv Rev. Dr. Wilkins. of this city.
Mayor Crawford followed with an address
of welcome, uenry w. uimoawu cnoscn
temporary chairman unanimously. Mr.
Lamon alluded in bis address to several
Republicans of National reputation and at
the mention of each name there were loud
cheers, but "Blaine" was the magic word.
The delegates went wild and it was several
minutes before the cheering and applause
Tho committees on credentials, resolu
tions and permanent organization and or
der of business, consisting of one delegate
from each district on each committee, were
appointed. The convention then adjourned
until three o'clock to give these committees
time to prepare reports.

New Yokk, May 15. Fully 5,000 Prohibi
tionists from this city and various parts of
the country were present at the Pro
hibition rallv at tho Metropolitan Ope
ra House last night. Tno mention
of the name of ex-Governor St.
Johu, of Kansas, was the signal for
loud applause. Colonel Hitter, of Indiana
polis, made the lir6t speech and Rev. A. B.
Lconaul, at one time tho Prohibition candi
date for Governor of Ohio, said tho lead
ing question of tho day was the liquor
trafiic and the way to settle it. Agitation
was essential to ultimate success which
would result in the disintegration of
tho two old parties. Rev. J. W. Hamilton,
of Massachusetts, declared high license
"one of the most fascinating fallacies of
the day." C. F. Crcigl.ton, of Nebraska,
compared the struggle against the liquor
traffic with tho strugelc ugr.inst slavery.

the levee south of Alexandria, Mo., broke
in several places and vast volumes of water
began pouring into the town. A spasmodic I

within a few minutes the laborers quit and

land in the Missouri bottoms that is sub

continuance of the Hood will result in an
approximated loss to the farming commu

OIL TANKS IS FLAMES.
On. Citt, Pa., May 14. An iron tank
containing 13,000 barrels of oil two miles
up Oil creek was struck by lightning yes
terday snd the oil boiled over, setting fire
to another tank on the opposite side ot the
creek containing 34,000 barrels. The Key

being built ia the creek to protect property
along the creek. The oil and tanks are
owned by J. B. Hmitbman.
Later The" oil tank fire is now believed
to be under control. The great overflow,
watched for with so much terror, occurred
shortly before twelve o'clock this morning,
lhe tank vomited its flames and contents
and huge islands of burning oil, some
of them 100 feet in diameter, floated down
the creek. The booms proved useless and
the fierce mass of fire swept on, burning
