WASHINGTON , March 80. The bill
passed , authorizing the Rccrotnry of
the treasury to ascertain and report
the Amount expended in the itidobt-
ness aaaumod by Kansas in repelling
invasions and suppressing Indian Iios-
tilnicB.
The bill retiring brevet Major Gen
eral Moigs , with rank nnd pay of a re
tired oflisor of the rank of major gen
eral , passed.
The bill for appraisement and ual
of lota in Peru , 111. , passed.
Mr. Williams introduced a bill t

The chair presented the ro om
moudatiou of the secretary of war fo
840,000 for the completion of For
Lewis , Colorado.
The bill for the relief of Capt. Eugene
gone Wells , placing him on the retired
list , passed.
The Indian appropriation bill wao
resumed.
Mr. Hoar , in a set speech , favored
better attention to the education of
Indiana to fit them to maintain themselves
solves without the continued assistance
anco of the government , and urgnd a
change in the administration of affairs
to remove the stigma of mismanage
ment and dishonor which hitherto
had attached to their treatment. Ho
dwelt at length with three essential
elements in the solution of the prob
lem : First , the capacity of the In
diana for education , civilization and
citizenship ; second , what it oosta the
government to educate them ; third ,
what it costs to feed them. On al
these points he urged careful , judi
cious treatment to make them L'ood
and uteful citizens.
Mr. Plumb , in the course of a long
speech , urged that Now England was
as much to blame as any other section
for the condition of the Indians , and
declared that t < o ted man was simply
a provisional race , to raako wny for
the Anglo-Saxon. Money had been
given to niany Indians far beyond
treaty obligations , and the Indian
problocr will rbnciu unchaiicjod uuti
the Indiana disappear.

PKOOEEDINOS IN TUB EOUBK.
A motion to take up the Utah elee
tion case was voted down.
The houao went into committee of
the whole on the tariff commission
bill , Mr. Duniioll talking in its favor.
Mr. Dunnc'll expressed the opinion
that the proposed commission would
do no more than collect a mass of mat
ter which would delay action
and congress would expire with
out doing anythi g on the tariff
question and the people will say
it did not do its duty , lie thought i't
the duty of the republican party to
the country and referred to the reduc
tion of the | i at iff by the democratic
house which slaugthored itself by
failing to revise and reduce the tariff.
Wo will bo in the same fix. Wo have
jumped into the commission boat and
will sail through , and it remains to bo
seen what the country will say.
Mr. Dunnell was carefully listened
to and warmly applauded by the dem
ocrats at the close.
Mr. Henitt took the floor at 3
o'clock , offering a resolution which ho
said he would ask to bo considered at
the proper time. It recommitted the
bill to the committee , directing it to
report in full a bill placing all raw
material and waste products used in
the manufacture of chemicals that
wore produced in this country ; also
alcohol used in manafacturiug , on the
free list , and substitute specific for ad
valorem duties , baaing these upon the
average dutiable values during past
yearn. No higher rate will be fixed
than necessary to compensate for dif
ference in the cost of labor in the
two countries. The rate of duty , ex
cept upon luxuries , ia not to exceed
50 per cent , of the avprogo dutiable
values. He was surprised at the re
marks of Mr. Kaaaon , which were 10
directly oppotod to his theory , ex
pressed in a speech in 1800
This led to an animated sparring
match between Messrs. Kasson and
Hewitt , the former claiming that the
portion of tbo speech referred to and
read did not represent him , and de
manding the reading of the context ,
upon which Mr. Hewitt announced
that ho would have Mr. Kasson'a
speech of 1800 printed in full in the
Record aa an appendix to his own.
He proceeded with his itrcumonta ,
holding that delay in revision of the
tariff was dangerous , and that the
country now ia prosperous but on the
ragged edge. Unless we make an
outlet for our riches wo shall be over
whelmed with them. What is neces
sary ia a system by which wo can
enter inoro readily the markets of
the world. Ho thought articles
used in manufacturing should
bo admitted free and so lessen
the cost of production and BO let UH
enter the markets of the world by re
duced coat of production. Ho favored
the removal of the tariff on iron. The
Atlantic ocean , ho said , had given u
tariff of ten per cent , on iron , for It
ooaU OA much to transport iron from
Enropo na it docs to dig nnd manu <
fucture it horp. [ Applauio. ] Do favored <
vorod a speciCo rate on cotton goodi
of nbout 25 per oont , ; woolen goods ,
30 per osnt. ; iron and steel manufac
ture , 35 per cont. ; nnd ilk goods 40
per cont. On etcol rolls the proiont
tariff system doca not benefit
the working people , but is mak
ing the rich richer nnd the poor
poorer , nnd should bo removed. He
quoted from the recent statements of
Dr. Lyon Plnyfair , deputy speaker of
the ] 3ritish hnuso I i > f ojmmo B ,
that the United States wa injuring
herself more thnn England by lur
tariff system , nnd predicting whilothu
United States must bccoino the great
est manufacturing country of the
world it would bo greatly and indefi
nitely delayed by this protective tnrill
Without action on the bill the com

During the campaign of 1880 , Wade
Hampton wrote John Sherman n letter -
tor in which ho told him his address
was Charleston , 8. C. Recently an
other article appeared in a Charleston
paper about Hampton. Ho had its
authorship investigated and ascer
tained that it was written by n clerk
in the treasury department named
Kirk. Hampton went to Folgor and
demanded Kirk bo discharged. Fol-
gor sent for Kirk for an explana
tion. Kirk came and complicated
the matter by Baying that
while ho wrote the article ho did BO
at the auggcstion and dictation of
Sherman , who had put him in the
treasury department. Ho admitted
ho had traduced the character of the
senator at the auggcstion of Sherman.
Folger was not inclined to believe this ,
demanding proof. Kirk produced a
letter written by Sherman , asking him
to write the attack in question. Kirk
will bo discharged and Hampton will
promptly ask the senate to take n
iiaud in the matter. The action of
Hampton towards Sherman on the
lloor of the senate since has been the
subject of comment. It is aaid they
almost got into a personal encounter
in the senate barber shop yesterday.

yacht clubj which is part of the mili
tary club , in the presence of the Duke
of Loichtonbunj and many officers of
the Proohnrficnski regiment. At the

Skoboloff narrated what had oc
curred in the imperial presence.
Ho maintained the cuir ap
proved his Paris speech , but
feared to express hia approval bo-
oauao Russia at this hour wai so dependent -
pendent on Germany that it was not
Biifj to run the risk of a rupture with
the latter power. This rupture , however -
over , it is believed , is inevitable. It
in perfectly well known hero that
Germany believes a war with Russia
ia curtain to bo fought , at no distant
day. The German general sthtThas
been for weeks carefully studying the
atrategotic doUulu that are necessary
to bu mastered before entering on thi | ,
war. FieldMarshal , Von Hoseko h
said that while war could not
undertaken with assurance of s
until lifter eighteen months futthor
preparation , it could bo begun now
with reasonable hopes of triumph ,
lie thinks before war is declared the
fortresses of Posen and Thorn should
bo greatly strengthened and tlml
Danztich and Konigaburg should bo
nut in a perfect , state of dojonao.
Then war with Russia would invite
Franco to her rovongo. All defenses
along the French frontier nhould bo
very carefully guarded.
