Mr. Roberts complained that the
House was obliged to yield its judg
ment to the Senate.
Mr," Tyner eid tho Senate had
engrafted on tho bill an amount of
legislation that ought never to be
ibroed through two Houses without
thorough examination and the full
est deliberation. The House pro
vision on straw bids has been ma
terially altered by the Senate.
Mr. Eldridge woudered what mys
terious power balked the wishes of
Congress, in the matter of straw
bids. He would rather have Con
gress set till September, than for
the House to be balked in its effbrts
to suppresB the crying evil. Mr.
Luttrell hoped U would be referred
baefc to a committee of conference,
and the House sit till tills combina
tion against the government be
broken up. Mr. Hawley approved

would diminish the revenue, forcing
publishers to make arrangements
