PROCEEDINGS IN THE SENATE.
WASHINGTON , D. 0. , March 7. Mr.
Sherman reported the original bill
from the committee on finance to re
fund $10 silver certificates.
Mr. Dawes , from the committee on
Jndian affairs , reported favorably the
bill ratifying the agreement with the
Crow Indians for the sale of a portion
of their reservation in Montana required -
quired for use of the Northern Pacific
Mr. Saunders intrcducod a bill
making Omaha a port of delivery.
* Mr. Call introduced n resolution
asking the president if any represents
, tions had boon made by any agent of
'tho United States to Chili that the
United States would1 resent the dis
memberment of Peru.
Mr. Fryo introduced a bill placing
foreign vessels Bailing from American
ports under the same regulations as
American vessels , and relieving coast-
* crs from certain oppressive taxed. Ho
showed that there wore discrimina
tions against American ships in American -
-can ports. Mr. Bayard supported
the resolution and it waa referred to
the committee on commerce.
The resolution directing the secre
tary of war to give the use of hospital
tents to people rendered houseless by
.floods in the west was passed.
Mr Dawes addressed the senate at
length in oppositibn to the anti-Chi
Mr. Dawes spoke over two hours.
Ho denounced the measure as opposed
'to the principles of the constitution ,
-and said ono of its supporters ( Mr.
-George ) had intimated that the time
would come when similar legislation
would bo necessary in dealing with ;
the problem of African citizenship in
Mr. George explained he said the
time might come not would come
when people in the south would have
to take such stops.
Mr. Dawes called the attention of
-tho American people to the fact that ;
the measure involved a principle
which kept the negro iu subjection
and which it was thought was tramped
into oblivion by the smoke and con
flict of war. This was retrograde and
one ho entered his protest
-C against it.
v Mr. Edmunds expressed himself in
favor of the amendment limiting the
operation of the measure to ten in
stead of twenty years. It was the
right of all nations to determine the
condition and circumstances nndor
which immigrants should bo admitted.
The cases of the negroes and the Chi
nese were not analogous in important
respects. Race , religion , habits ,
modes of thought and development
of Americans and Chinese were Jon-
tirely different and the latter could
not assimilate themselves to our insti
tutions. Without homogonity a re
public could not exist , and in view of
the fact that the Mongolians hero
had shown no disposition or ability to Nt
adapt themselves to our institutions NtUi
ho thought suspension of immigration Ui
politic and would therefore vote ior to
the bill with the propcsod amondmcnt-
At 410 ; the senate wont into execu la

An efl'ort will bo made to take final

shall ii : Washington , as passed by the

stated that thirty years ago several
thousand dollars was raised by the bar
of this country to erect a statue to
Judge Marshall. The sum had boon
carefully husbanded by the Phila'dol- Nal
plna bar and now amounted to § 20-
' 000. The committee had written to ris
Attorney General Browster , saying tin
that they would erect the proposed bo
statue in Washington if congress aft !
would provide the location , This ofwi
statement and the understanding that wi
only such a portion of the sum appro JU ( :
priatod by the biil as should bo found ma
necessary would bo used for the erec ju <
tion of the statue. The bill passed. da
After a long discussion aa to whether he
or not the tariff committee's bill had
precedence in the committee of the
-whole under the rule of "bills for rais
ing revenue , " the chair decided it had Na
not and that the claim of the Valentino ]
tine agricultural appropriation bill Lii
-was in order and that the bill must betaken cle
taken up. wh
'The house then took up the agri * Ph
cultural appropriation bill , which ap die
propriates $306,000 for expenses of
the year against $325,600 last year. .
Mr. Aikon spoke in favor of a liberal - Nat
oral appropriation for experiments in
tea agriculture. So
Mr. Turner followed with an attack hewe
on the tariff system , which ho declared we
greatly oppressed the agricultural thi
'Community. Ho referred to the difli- Rr :
culty in getting tariff or other legisla rot
tion through committees under the ma .
pros 3111 rules and in speaking of the inf
rules sent to the clerk's desk and had del
read the resolutions ot the democratic fro
caucui last night.
The resolution passed authorizing
the secretary of war to use hospital

-overflow in Mississippi.

the necessity ariscajbaval sloops and
private ostablishimuitB could speedily
