The opponents of the Ohineso bill
asked Mr. Page to agree to the time

y/pliod he would fix a time after coo-
\ # suiting with friends of the bill , but
'did ' not propose ti > have a flood of
amendments and consume two or
three days voting on them. He
would admit a reasonable numb er.
The house then resumed considera
tion of the bill.
Mr. Washburn ( Minn. ; took the
floor on the ground the coming of
Chinese was an injustice to laboring
. / Mr. McClure , ' who was minister
Jhina under President Piorcs ,
ipported the bill , holding that no
feeling of reciprocity existed between
the two nations , and that the history
of their relations show there never
will bo. Ho gave many instances of
the ill treatment of Americans by the
Chinoao , and related instances to
show the intellectual inferiority of the
people , many of which incidents came
under his own observation while trav
eling in China.
Mr. Kasson spoke .in favor of his
amendment to the bill making the
term ten years instead of twenty , do
ing away with the passport system and
omitting the clause which makes the
bill apply to skilled labor. Ho op
posed the bill because it takes advan
tage of the confidence which the Chi
neao reposed in the United States by
the late treaty and ho wished not to
live to see the day when American
faith would bo classed with the term
. "Punio faith. " California demands
rSTTomothlng more reasonable than this
The house then took a recess until
10 o'clock debate

endowed by the government , woulc
give tha government u grand oppor
tunity to open commercial relations
with South America. The senator regarded
garded the whole matter in the light
of commercial annexation. The senator
tor desired him to go to Washington
and see Blaine and explain the matter
to him , the senator promising to
arrange an interview for the pur
pose , and Shipherd went to Washing
ton. "The senator kept his word.
The senator declined to accept a re
tainer on the ground that if the secretary
tary took the matter up it might come
before congress and as a member o
congress he could not concientiously
take a fee in the case. After the secretary
rotary did take the matter up and i
became understood it would bo sottloc
by the state department then ho
.took a fee , but four months later returned
turned it when ho learned that aftei
all the matter could not bo sottlec

LITTLE ROCK , Ark. , March 22.
Nine days ago Lieut. Sam Chur
chill was commissioned by Gov.
Churchill to investigate in company
with Lieut. Satterly , agent of the
war department , the condition of af-
'oirs and distribution of supplies in
ho overflowed districts of this state.
Ho returned last night , and has made
a lengthy and minute report of his
observations. Ho found the larger
lortion of Desha and t ivo-thirds of
Chicota county under water , and
housands of their inhabitants in ap-
jailing destitution. Some scones wit-
icssod were heartrending , In places
bsolutoly everything was swept away
ly the floods , leaving a once prosper-
us city without a mouthful to oat or
, ny living thing near them. The
, 'overmnout ' supplies saved hundreds
rom death by starvation , and thou-
ands from terrible suffering. The
tories circulated that undeserving
artics received much of the sup-
) lies ho found untrue except in ono
nstanco. The area of country sup
plied by the commissson at Arkansas
3ity , Desha county , is ton miles long
nd seven miles wide , and contains
ivor a thousand destitutes. Ono
housand more rations are wanted
hero immediately. The rations is-
ued were thrco pounds of salt moat
and a pock of meal per week. At
? orine , Lieut. Churchill found the
upplies ] injudiciously distributed to
unwinding points , some receiving
rations for a month and others not securing -
curing , anything. Around the mouth
of the Arkansas and White rivers 250
loople are yet unsupplied and suffer-
ng. At Redford , Desha county ,
which is the distributing center of an
overflowed section of 31 by 13 miles ,
. ,200 people look for food. The en-
ire number of destitutes in Dosha
county is estimated at 3,500 ; in Chi-
iota county Lieut. Churchill estimates
ho number of dependants for subsist
ence on the charity of the government
aa 4,000 , At Gainosland and the sur
rounding county .the suffering ia most
ntenae. Supplies * will be issued .at
all available points , but moro are
urgently needed. Hundreds are liv-
ng in the second stories and on.roofs
ot houses , and wherever little knolls
are found above water cattle can be
eon dying and the rest starving. In
one store built high on stilts and sur
rounded by water he found all living
ogether a largo family , among whom
vas an old woman at the point of
leath , fifteen mules , several cows and
number of other animals.
From St. Francis , Miss. , Critton-
den and other counties of this state ,
similar tales of misery and distress
reached here some days ago. General
tfangam , commissioner for the state ,
estimated the number destitute at
17,000. tt is now claimed they will
aggregate 20,000 people. It will take
hroo or four weeks before the water
eaves the plantations , and oven then
hey will bo dependent on outside
aid for support. The loss of stock ,
Lieut. Churchill' says , l.os boon so
reat that with what remains farmois
yxn scarcely till one-eighth part of the
iand usually cultivated. The largest
break in the Mississippi river is juiit
below Gaines , in Chicota county ; it
is eight miles long.
YAZOO CITY , Miss. .March . 22. The
river has fallen about two inches.
About 500 persons have arrived hero
during the last week ; 500 more are ut
the camp ground and fed principally
thF citizens. The demoralization of
labor ia complete. All say they do
not intend t-j go back to the bottoms.

KANSAS CITY , March 22. Another 'I" '
of the parties suspected with having
participated : in the famous Blue Cut
.rain robbery was arrested near Inde
pendence this afternoon. The last
victim is Henry Bugler , a younger
brother of John Bugler , already un
der indictment for the same offense.
The : arrest was made on the Blue
Springs & Independence road , about
two miles from the residence of the
prisoner's : mother in " Cracker's
Cieck" about 2 o'clock p. m. by Do-
: ectivo Gorham and Deputy Marshal
Holland. The warrant was * sworn
out before Squire Horace Shelley
oun the morning by Mr. Oorlmm , and
tin ; oflicials lost no time in going
.o . the Qlcndalo neighborhood , where
, hey expected to find their man. They
wont first to the residence of Mr.
Uu > lor , but not finding him there
nado a search in the vicinity , coming
upon . him upon the public road near
thi Litt.o Blue bridge. Ho was taken
at . unco to Independence- ar
raigned b'-foro Justice Shelly for ex
amination. He entered a plea of not
; uilty and waived preliminary hear-
ng. The justice fixed his bail at
3,000 , conditioned for appearance
joforo the special grand jury next
NIonday . , but being unable to give
said ball , the prisoner was committed
toW jail. Bugler has been absent in
Washington territory since April , 1880
until about one week ago , and ho sayo
that ho can prove conclusively
Jmt upon the date of the
train robbery ho was at work in Walla
Walla. If he can prove this of course
! iia innocence will bo completely
established , but Detective Graham ,
who worked up the case against him ,
says this story is "thin" and "won't
wash , " as ho has fully as much if not
more proof of his complicity in the
robbery as against any of the others.
The ofilcials do not deny that Bugler
bos boon in Washington territory dur
ing the greater portion of the lost two
years , but say that they have strong
proof of his having made an ex
cursion to.thi locality for the
_ jry. Buglo"r Ukoa his arrest with
the utmost nonchalance and ia by far
the most unconcerned of any of the
parties who have boon yet-arrested.
