A Large Number of Spectator In Attend
ance Chairman Hltt of the Honse
Foreign Committee Opened With a
Strong Appeal for l'assago of tlio Con
ference Ileport on the Cuban Resolu
tions Miscellaneous Matters.
Washington, April 4. Tho galleries
of tho llouso Toro well filled to-day
In anticipation of a renewal of tho
Cuban debate in connection with tho
presentation of tho conference report
on the Cuban resolution, but the at
tendance on tho floor was stnallor
than usual.
Mr. Murphy of Illinois secured
unanimous consent for tho considera
tion of a bill to authorizo tho con
struction of a third bridge across tho
Mississippi River at St. Louis. Mr.
Rarthold of Missouri offered an amend
ment, which was defeated, to compel
tho construction of tho bridge at least
one and a half and not moro than two
and a half miles below tho Eads
bridpe. Mr. Murphy and Mr. Joy
urged tho bassago of tho bill becanso
of the excessive tolls charged by tho
present bridge company. It was
Mr. Picklor, chairman of tho Pen
sions committee, demanded tho regu
lar order. This being privato bill
day, he wanted to proceed with tho
consideration of privato pension bills
reported from tho committeo of tho
Mr. Hltt, chairman of tho foreign
affairs committee, thought that lio
ought to antagonize tlioso bills, if
they would entail debate in tho inter
est of tho conference report on tho
Cuban resolutions.
"Cuba can wait," replied Mr. Pick
lor, "wlillo wo pass theso pension
Mr. Hltt finally agreed to withhold
his motion If Mr. Picklcr would de
mand tho previous question on each
bill as it was called up.
The Democrats insisted that thero
ought to be debate and Mr. Erdman
of Pennsylvania made the point of no
quorum on the first bill, with the re
sult that thero were some dilatory
tactics on theso private bills, and the
Speaker was compelled to count a
quorum on them.
At 2:U5 o'clock Mr. nitt moved tho
adoption of tho conference report on
tho Cuban resolutions and sbokc in
advocacy of it. Ho reviewed the leg
islation bo far and declared that both
House and Senate resolutions first
recognized Cuban belligerency. The
second Senate resolution, ho said, pro-
fioscd friendly ofllces looking to Cuban
ndependence. This course might bo
resented in timo of peace, but in cases
almost precisely parallel where Spain
was at war with her dependencies on
this continent in tho early part of this
century, the very slap proposed was
taken as wa3 also done uudcr Presi
dent Grant. Tho unmistakable voico
of the people of the Unised States was
in favor of recognition of belligoreucy
of the Cubans. The speaker awelt
upon tho vast benefits to the
rebels from recognition and held that
they had shown that they were
powerful enough to resist all of
Spain's power for u year and had
gained in strength steadily. He be
lieved that theCubaus, If independent,
would not bo like tho people af other
Spanish-American nations, constantly
at wnr. On tho contrary, Cuba would
be liko Chill, an honor to the new
world. In closing he raid: "When
this vote has been given as it will be,
overwholmingly by this House, con
curring with tho senate in expressing
tho will of tho people of the United
States, wo cannot doubt that the ex
ecutive will act and obey tho voice of
the nation, and that wc will speedily
hear that tho President has recog
nized the belligerency of the struggling
Cubans. The waning causo of Spain
bus been apparent from week to week
for two months past. It will not be
long until we shall have an end of all
the bombastic pretensions and abom
inations of Woyler's savage operations
and the Cubans, having vindicated
their rights with their arms, will en
joy tho liberty they have earned."
Washington, April i. It Is author
'tatively announced that Secretary
Carlisle will soon announce his candi
dacy for the Presidency. During the
past few weeks he has received num
trous letters asking for a positive de
jlaration and it is probable that tbo
tnnouueement may come in the form
f a reply to one of these letters.
Again, it has been suggested that the
innonncoment be made through tho
ticdium of au interview with Senator
Lindsay, who is the Secretary's warm
( personal friend and supporter. But
in one form or the other it is said to
be ccrtaiu that tho announcement is
loon to be made.
Mr. Carlisle's supporters among tho
Kentucky Democrats talk in the most
;onli(lont strain respecting tho action
to bo taken by the Kentucky state
jonvention, which will meet to bend
ielegates to Chicago. They assert
without qualification that tbo sound
jionoy men will control it. and not
only instruct for Mr. Carlisle for
Prosidcnt, but indorse tho adminis
tration out and out. They declare
themselves to be absolutely assured of
this, and some of them go to the ex
tent of predicting that Mr. Blackburn
will not appear on tho scene.
Senators Bronston and Gobcl, who
figured so prominently in the legis
lative fight us Mr. Blackburn's raan
Hgers havo recently declared for Mr.
Carllslo for President, and Senator
Uronston wishes to go ns a delegat& at
largo to Chicago to work in the Secre
tary's behalf.
A Mulct Luw Victory.
Dial Moixks, Iowa, April 4. Tho
inulut law won n decisive victory yes
terday in the Seuate, tho liquor man
ufacturing bill being dofvatcd by a
voto of 3 j'oas to 57 nays, with ono
absentee. Following, as this doos,
tho defeat of the question of resub
mission a few weeks ago, tho vote
practically settios the prohibition fight
in this State. The Stato will, there
fore, still have the curious anomaly
of a law which permits liquor to be
sold, but forbids its manufacture.

Washington, April 4 The quostlon
of appropriation of public money for
privato or sectarian institutions,
which was debated for sevoral days
during the consideration of tho Dis
trict of Columbia appropriation bill,
in connection with some appropria
tions for charltablo institutions in
Washington, was fought over for four
hours in the House yesterday. On tho
former occasion, tho contest was man
aged by Mr. Linton, a Michigan Re
publican, who is ono of tho pronounced
A. P. A. moinbers in Congress. That
contest was successful, and, by a vote
of 143 to IBS, tho bill was recommit
ted. Yesterday the bono of conten
tion was tho Howard university, a
colored institution of Washington, for
which an appropriation of 833,000
was inserted in tho sundry civil bill
Wednesday on motion of Mr. Evans,
Republican, of Kentucky. Thero was
no opposition and no debate on the
item. Yesterday, Mr. Halner, Repub
lican, of Nebraska, in whose tempor
ary absence tho amendment was
adopted, rallied his forces against the
appropriation on tho ground that it
was both a private and a sectarian in
stitution, a school of theology being
maintained by tho university.
Politics, of courso, was Injected lib
erally Into tho debate. Mr. Sayers
nnd Mr. Hepburn were especially
prominent. Each insisted that his
party was more particularly thofriond
of the black man.
The Houso voted, 129 to 10-5, to re
tain tho appropriation, thus, in n
measure, reversing its action when tho
District bill was up. An nunlysis of
tho voto shows that 107 Republicans,
19 Democrats and 3 Populists voted
for tho amendment, and 65 Repub
licans, 47 Democrats and threo Popu
lists against it. Tho sundry civil bill,
s amended, was passed.
Appropriations Increased In Order to
I'urchaso Sectarian Indian School.
Washington, April 4, Tho Sonate
committeo on appropriations has com
pleted tho consideration of the Indian
appropriation bill. Tho Houso In
serted an explicit provision that none
of tho money appropriated for schools
should be used in tho support of sec
tarian schools, but provided for ap
propriations for the schools at Hamp
ton Roads, Va., and for Lincoln insti
tute at Philadelphia. The Senate
committeo did not nmond tho Houso
provisions declariug against sectarian
schools, but struck out tho appropria
tions for tho Philadelphia and Hamp
ton Roads schools. Tho former
amounted to $33,000 nnd tho latter to
Tho Senate committee also increased
tho appropriation for tho purchase or
lease of school property to tho extent
of 8100,000, making the total appropri
ation for this purpose 5140,000. The
purpotoof this increase is to supply
means with which to purchase the
property of sectarian institutions de
voted to tho education of Indians.
The appropriation for tho support of
day and industrial tehools was also
increased to the extent of 8100,000,
making tho total for this purpose
Tho bill as reported carries an ap
propriation of $7,413,800,11 net reduc
tion of 51,000,035 from the amount
carried by the bill as it passed tho
House. The total reduction, a part of
which isoffsot by Increases, is SI, 74 J, -

that of SI, 400,000 which the Hoiibo ap
propriated for tho second payment on

Arizona und New Mexico Statehood Hills
Not Yet at a Voting Stage.
Washington, April 4. Yesterday's
meeting of tho Houso committee on
territories was devoted to a discussion
of Arizona and New Mexico Statehood
bills and the committee failed to ar
rive at a voting stage. Delegates
Murphy and Catron asserted that the
opponents of Statehood In the com
mit two were doing tile talking merely
as u filibustering move and conse
quently the meeting was a rather
warm one.
Mr. Taft of Ohio, during tho dis
cussion, declared that Congress could
not blind its eyes to tho fact that the
admission of the two Territories
would add four votes for free silver to
tho Senate. He argued that It was
not fair that the existing status of the
Union should be changed in the midst
of a great controversy like the finan
cial question; that tho question should
bo settled by the union as it now
stands; and that sound money men
should not be handicapped by now
silver states. Ho also charged that
twenty-five tier cent of tlio inhabit
ants of Arizona and thirty-three per
cent of New Mexico aro illiterate.
Mr. Owens of Kentucky said that
Territories whose areas was greater
than that of New England nnd popu
lation less than that required for a
Congressional district were unfit for
Statehood. He alio attacked tho sys
tem of representation proposed for tho
constitutional convention of Arizona
as a partisan one aevisecl to luriner
Republican interests. Mr. Avery hold
that the only questions to be considered
were the qualifications of the Terri
tories for Statehood and Mr. Harris
argued that tho silver question should
not be brought ini th controversy.

heretofore purchased from the Burling
ton railroad, you aro required to enter
oppoaranco in said court by April 0,
1890, and flic an answer setting forth

Uy tho terms of an act of congress,
approved March 2, 1800, it is provided
as to land grant lands sold by railroads
that "no patent to any lands, held by a
bona fldo purchaser, shall bo vacated
or annulled, but tho right and title of
such purchaser aro hereby confirmed."
In tho said act it Is also provided:
"That no suit be brought or maintain
ed, nor shall recovery bo had for lands,
or tho value thereof, that were certified
or patented in llou of other lands,
covered by grant, which woro lost or
relinquished by tho grantee in conso
quenco of tho failure of the govern
ment, or its officers, to withdraw the
samo from salo or entry." A full copy
of said net of congress is heroto at
tached. By its terms vou will see that tho
title of nil lands bought of the Burling
ton railroad will be confirmed upon the
bona fides or good faith of the purchase
being established, cither In tho depart
ment of tho Interior or in the courts.
The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
railroad company has already taken
steps to establish' tho pood faith of all
sales of land made by It In the depart
ment of tho Interior und hopes to pro
cure a discontinuance by the govern
ment of this very unnecessary suit.
In tho event that this dismissal
should not be had the railroad compa
ny stands ready to make appearanco
nnd fllo answer for all defendants who
have purchased lands from it This
will be dono without expense of attor
ney's fees to you. It is, of course, op

Senator William E. Chandler presided,
and was greeted enthusiastically when
ho arose to speak. Ho blttorly as
sailed the Wilson tariff bill, und con
trasted the financial showings of the
administrations of Presidents Harri
son mid Cleveland. He declared that
thero would bo a great reaction in No
vember against the Democracy, and
he hoped it would bo under the lead

Only ono ticket for dolegatcs-at-

Dexter Richards of Newport wero

Colonel Frank Rollins of Concord
offered a substituto financial plunk,
identical with that adopted by tho
Massachusetts convention last week
as an amendment to tho resolutions,
but Chairman Putney, Senator Gal
linger and others opposed the proposi
tion und the amendment was lost by
au overwhelming viva voce voto and
the adoption of the platform as pro
tented by tho committee was made
unanimous. It opens witli denuncia
tion of tho Democracy and calls for
tin enactment of currency laws that
