"The bill gives a marked and delib
erate sanction , attended by no circum
stances of pressing necessity , to a
questionable , and , as I am clearly of
opinion , the dangerous practice of
tacking upon appropriation bills gen
eral and permanent legislation. The
practice opens a "wide door to hasty ,
Inconsiderate and sinister legisla
tion. Itinvites attacks upon
.the Independence and constitutional
powers of the executive , by providing
an easy and effective way of conrfrain- "
Ing the executive discretion. Al-

WASHINGTON , May 4 4 p. m.

Senator Vest said that he. proposed
to introduce nothing more partisan
tEEn theriatnre of "tho"issue necessari
ly involved. s > The minority report
contained no argument or reason but
only abuse " and reflection upon the
character "of senators on this side of
the chamber. Their righteous indig
nation lies in the fact that the major
ity don't construe ; the constitution as
they do ; and contrary to what they
believe is Tight , declare that Kellopg
is entitled to a seat in this senate.
But the main-feature of the minority
report is the charge of disloyalty
made-'igainst.those senators for seatg
that were in the rebellion or Eyinpa
th izod with the rebellion. This is a
gran-i argument. Those who do not
vot/j the republican ticket are disloyal.
This ia a sufficient one. What proof
have Lougstreet , Mosby and Key ,
postmaster-general , givou of their tor-
rowf6V having gone into the'rebollfonP
or of their allegiance to the country ?
Nothing more than their joining thts
ranks of the republican party.
He passed into a review of the his
tory of the Packard Jegislatnre , and"
declared that it never had a legal ex
istence. The principal objection to
the unseating of Kellogg on this rade
of the senate chamber -comes fi.vm
southern senators and not from r.orth-
ern. He then took up the armament
of'res "

that'the eliato had power-to -

SenatorCarpentar It Is immaterial
whether we say wo are a court or not ,

The principle involved is. whether a

between individuals.
Senator Vest Then eccording to
the senator the state of L9usiana ( has
nothing to do with this question.
Senator Carpenter Nothing'at "all.
Senator Yost resumed his argument.
Ho quoted from testimony and created
a great deal of amusement by quota

statements made by witnesses. He
said that he referred to the testimony

no reference to the election of Kel

Senator Vest But it was exactly

was true in 1874 it must have been
true in 1872 and 1876. He then went
on to speak of the rewards which had

CHICAGO-May 4 4 p. m. Six
republican county conventions wore

controlled those of Mercer and De-
Kalb , and Grant those of Jersey and
Tazewell. The delegations from Edgar
and Casa were divided. It is becom-
nfifrnore evident every day that the
third termers are becoming very
seriously alarmed over the uncertainty
of the pivotril state of Illinois
While' the Blaine mon hero
are disposed to bo over
over-confident , and their realizations
will doubtless fall somewhat short of
their expectations , it is certain that

Our Petroleum Trade.

NEW YORK , May 3 1 a. m. Mem
bers of the New York Petroleum Ex
change met in annual session yester
day. Milch interest was taken in the
proceedings as it was known that ta-
tistics of the trade would be given in
the address and reports of the officers.
George H. Lincoln , president of the
Exchange alluded (6 the great busi
ness done in petroleum during the
year. Production had been increased
from 60,000 barrels per day in April ,
1879 to.72,000 barrels per" day at theE
resent 'time. The stock of crude oil
E eld in pipe lines increased from
6,600,000 barrels to 10,000,000
barrels. Consumption increased
40COO barrels per d iy. The strong
probability of a rapid decline in the
Bradford district at a no distant day
consequently makes a ton months'
supply not excessive. Fluctuation in
crude oil has been very marked , de-
cling from 81.10 to G3Jc ; then ad
vancing to S1.28J , and since declin
ing to 2l c. These changes led to
speculation , often reaching a million
jarrols. Foreign countries have been
enabled to obtain petroleum at a lower
irice than ever baf ore ; had greatly in
creased exports ; but the over-supply
created thereby had had the effect to
cause the present dullness. The final
result must ba increased consumption ,
ispecially in the cast , and would bene
fit the country trade in time.

Correspondence of THB
SIDNEY , May 3 , 1880. Sidney la
the largest and oldest town in western
Nebraska. It is the only important
town of Cheyenne , * very large and
wealthy county , -whoso cattle are
worth $12,000,000 , Much gran wai
burned from the prairies during Ml
and winter , and no rain haa fallen for
six months. The gross U low about
starting this spring , and the cattle are
thin and weak. The preliminary
"round-up" has already begun , but
the main work will commence on the
10th of May. Cheyeaao , Keith and
Lincoln conn tiM are almost exclusively
engaged in grazing , and a consolidation
of the stock interests into one grand
stock company ia frealy ipokon of.
though not yet an accomplished fact.
They held a meeting aomo time since
and elected Mr. Hamblin stock in
spector. It is his duty to examine the
brand < of all stock shipped from the
country. The cattle interest has rap
idly increased during the few years
past , end will probably be the domin
ant interest for many years to come ,
if not always. Other interests may
spring up to overshadow it in the com
ing decide.
The agricultural interest will not
be very great till a wonderful increase
in rainfall is reached. The toil is not
uniform ; in some places it is ahaoat
worthless , but over ono half o ! it is
comparatively good and might yield
bountifully under propitious circum

bonanza will be unearned for Sidney
when her coal c D0 obtained at a
nominal cost n'f § 3 per tonTherQ is
no indolent for mvastment in the
ont rprwe at present , as none of it
oould be shipped. The Union Pacific
railroad is the only road through the
place and they wonld discriminate in
favor of the Wyoming mines , In which
they themselves are interested , and
thus choke all encouragement to indi
vidual enterprise.
A railroad has b on projected be
tween this place and Deadwood , but
we are not informed whether it has
been definitely determined to build
from tiiia laCe or Cheyenne. Snr-

road will be built at a Tory early date

point and the Black Hills is a great
factor in Sidney business. This be
