Wahhi.mitom, July 22. Tho most Im
portant legislation passed by tho houso
yesterday was tho bill to enforce recip
rocal relations between tho United
States and Canada. Tho president has
sent two messages to congress on tho
subject, and yesterday tho house passed
the. measure without division and sent
it tit once to the senate. It was laid
before that body just before adjourn
ment nnd placed on the calendar. This
promptness indicates that congress is
very much interested in this matter,
that tho president will bo heartily sup
ported nnd the g-eat Interest involved
When tho bill was called up in tho
house, Mr. Blount, of Georgia, saidtlint
the president had in two messages
called the attention of congress to tho
fact that notwithstanding treaty
rights, citizens wcro discriminated
ngainst in the matter of transportation
through the Wellnnd, St Lawrence nnd
other canals. A rebate was accorded to
the Canadian vessels which was not ac
corded to tho American vessels. This
bill was designed to require that this
discrimination should lie abolished and
that the treaty rights of American citi
zens should be preserved. The bill was
passed without division.
The bill provides that when tho pres
ident shall tie satisfied that tho passage
through any canal or lock connected
with thu navigation of the St Lawrcnco
river, tho great lakes, or the waterways
connecting tho same, of any vessels of
the United States, or of cargoes or pas
sengers, in transit to any port of the
United Slates is prohibited, or is mnda
difficult, or burdensome by tho imposi
tion of tolls or otherwise, which ho
shall deem to bo reciprocally unjust
anil unreasonable, ho shall have tho
power to suspend the right of free pas-
sago through thu St Mary's falls canal,
