clement weather outside, wcro well
tilled. After the reading of the jour
mil, Mr. Tnft, Hopiibllcan, of Ohio
toole the iloor In Mipjiort of the ll.iyui-d
censure resolution. Hi; declared that
Mr. llayard had abused his privilege
by Hunching a great political party of
his homo country, and for that reason
ho deserved erillciMii. Mr. Tuft
strongly resented Mr. Ilayard's ohi'i&i
llcatlon of Hi-publlcan protectionists
an "jobbers and ohnlVors" and free
trade Democrats as "statesmen.' In
closing, he said: "When tho ambas

importance has become so expanded
a.s not to permit htm to rocopilc that
his own position and Inlltience In for
eign hinds depend upon the support of
n united, dignllleil and proud nation,
it Is lnj'li time that this Home, in re
flecting public sentiment, should by
icsolultnus of censure commainl him
to maintain the dignity of his own
country and to subordinate his own
personality to the interests nud good
name of the entire American people '
Mr. 1'carson of North Carolina said
that lie had been an mlmiter of the
Hayard family and of Thomas I'. Hay
ard, but he believed th.it Mr. linyaid's
speeches dcsoived censure. He pre
dicted a new triumph for protection
in tint coming campaign and closed by
appealing to the House to pass tho
resolutions, Ki1ug: 'Thoi. if our
representatives "in foreign lands can
not boast, of our institutions they will
at letiht pay them the poor tribute of
their silent contempt, Let it never
bo expunged until the day -j( doom or
until that day of gloom and .shame
when tho reprcsentativesof the Amor
can people no longer dare to defend
tho fair name of their country against
all enemies, foreign and (lotneMic:
against the assaults of the open foe
and against tliu insolence of the pub
lic servant who would exalt his pnrtv
by debasing his country.''
Mr. (Irosvcnor of Olilo, in reply to
the remarks made by Mr. Mccreary
yesterday aboiu General Schcnck
wlillo minister to Grout ISrltiiiu in
connection with the Kmma mines and
his authorship of n voluiiio entitled
"Utiles of Draw Poker," referred to
General Sehenek's dlstingulsheil sor
viccs in times of war and peace. He
could not understand tho purpose of
thu attack. It was not germane to
tliu discussion. Assuming that poker
playing contravened the high stand
ard Of morality set up by the gentle
man from Kentucky, all that was out
side of his olliclul conduct and could
not be made a ground of censure.
Mr. Mct'reary said that he had made
no attack on (icnerul Sehenck. Xo
one. could deny, however, that his
conduct had been investigated.
Mr. Grosvcnor wanted to know then
xruat tho purpose was. If U wan not
intended to assail the memory of a
dead man like a ghoul, then the 'utter
ances of .Mr. Mct'reary were iille
words, In either case, he was here to
defend htm. In regard to thu Hmma
mines, tho best proof of (ieneral
Sehenek's good intentions was that ho
himself invested large sums of money
m these stocks and continued lo pay
assessments to thu day of his deatn.
As to the l"t)k on draw poker he hud
written out a few rules of tho grcnl
American game by request of a friend
nud luid been, of course, very much
chagrined when public reference to It
had been made, lie abused no conli
deuce when hn said that (icucral
Seheuok told a friend lie knew just
enough about poker always- to lose Ills
money. As a poker player, however,
he desired to my that he died without
leaving an unpaid poker debt.

Wapiiixoton, March 'J. Senator
Mitchell of Oregon to-ilny reported to
tlio scnato from tho elections commit
tco tlio joint resolution proposing nn
ainendmeut to tlie'cotistitution, pro
viding for tliu election of Senators by
tlio direct vote of tlio people. Tho
coinmlttco says the accompanying
report lias approached the subject of
thu proposed change in the method of
electing Senators with a' full appreci
ation of tho gravity of tlio subject
and of the importance of the public
The objections thatare raised to the
nroposcd change are dUetisscd lull v.
The nmcmfincul, it is held, docs not in
tho slightest degree trench upon the
s stem upon which the government Is
founded. Tlio objection is not tena
ble that any pioposed change in the
mode of electing senators can lie
properly regarded r.s- nn attempt to
deprive the states, respectively as
states, In their overclgn or political
capacity, of their legal representation
in the Senate. It proposes a change
in tho. mode -only this and nothing
more by which the states tespect
ivoly, litul tlio people there of, shall
ehooso their representatives in the
Senate Why, asks the report, tiro not
thu people, thu qnulilled electors of a
state, the proper mouthpiece of the
statu in tliu oleetioti ot senators, and
if entitled to speak, then why not di
rectly and for themselves, nud not
through their representatives in state
One, weighty and principal object ion
to the present system of electing Sen
ators, says thu report, is that tho
power and right of the individual
voter aro hedged about and circum
scribed, ills will is manacled, his voli
tion paralized and ho cannot vote for
his choice. It carries with it the im
plication that tho people, thu qnulilled
voter-, are, for some reason, unlit for
the full exercise of the elective fran
chise Again, it is held that the pro
posed amendment is an enlargement
of the right of sulVragc on tin; part of
those entitled to its exorcise under
existing laws, and It tends to render
impossible tlivi use of improper
methods to iiillucucu .Senatorial elec
tions. While it ii possible that tho
inducements of a wealthy and un
scrupulous aspirant for 'Senatorial
honors may reach and iullucnee the
majority of a small body In the Legis
lature, such a thing would be impossi
ble wcro the decision left to the great
mass of voters.
Another unanswerable objection the
committee linds to tho present system
of electing senators is the great length
of time frequently consumed in the
election and tlio consequent distraction
of the legislative minds from business,
to say nothing of the strife, ill feeling
and contention that too often follow
in tlio wake of such contests. Another
vital objection to the present system
is that in tliu election of the members
of the legislature, when such legis
lature has as one of its duties the
selection of a senator, every consider
ation is lostsight of except tlio solitary
one of how candidates, if elected, will
voto on the question of the senator
ship. Public opinion, it is argued, de
mands the change proposed: tho
demand is loud unit emphatic: pro
nounced as it is imperative: earnest us
it seems to lie, although unanimous
among the great masses of the people.
The tendency of public opinion, thu
report concludes, is to disparage the
Senate and depreciate its dignity, its
usefulness, its integrity, its power, if
tlicro is any cause for tills tendency
in thu public mind, it should lie re
moved without delay. Tho adoption
of the amendment will remove preju
dices now existing which are rapidly
becoming deeply and dangerously fas
tened upon thu public mind, wiil d's
sipatc all cause, excusu anil pretext
for unjust criticism nnd will tend to
olovato tho character, advance the
dignity nnd increase the usefulness of

Cuba resolution taken up. Then Mr.
Sherman yielded temporarily to Mr.
Allen of Nebraska to stale his views
on the claim of Mr. Dupout of Dela
ware. The statement had more than
passing interest, as tlio six Populist
votes in the Senate aro regarded as
decisive in tho contest and thin was
tho first expression from a Populist
Senator. Mr. Allen contended that
Mr. Dupont was not entitled to a seat
without a ccrtiticato of credentials
from tlio executive- of tlio Statu and
that when this wus lacking as in Jthls

tho issuance of tho credentials by the
Messrs. Mitchell nnd Chandler called
attention to tliu fact that senators
now hit in tho chimbcr who did not
hold credentials from tho govurnor
and Mr. Mitchell sarcastically added
that this disclosed Mr. Allen as the
