.finance , reported favorably the bill t
- establish an assay oflico at Dcadwood
Consideration of the bill granting
right of ( Vay to the St. Louis & Sai
Francisco railway through the reservation
vation of the Choctaw nation was
resumed , and discussion continue' '
until 4:45 : , when without coming to
vote or. the bill the senate adjourned
In the consideration of s'onat
amendments to the postoffico bill
-some discussion arose on the amendment
mont rostorinc tlo franking privileg
to members of congress.
Mr. Cannon ( III. , ) said from figure
.furnished by the pott oflico depart
imont ho found that of 174,000,00
pounds of mails wcro carried per year
73 per cent , being printed matter , an
is carried practically free of cost
Eighty-five per cent , is received fo
the carrying of letters. The proposi
tion to carry the mails of congressmen
free would probably allow transporta
tion free of about i of ono per cent
of the mails carried. Ho did no
make these statements as being in fa
vor of the amendment but for the in
formation of the houso. He , how
ever , stated that the franking privil
go having been already restored 01
all printed matter in any way part o
the records , ho might fa vor extending
it to letters if it could bo granted.
Mr. Towusond opposed the amend
Mr. Robinson ( N. Y. ) , thought
it a small affair to refuie transporta
tion of a half-ounce letter to
.soldier when books weighing four or
five pounds were carried free to
wealthy farmers and college profess
ors. He favored a general reduction
of letter postage.
Mr. Hill ( N. J. ) , favored a general -
oral reduction of letter postage to all.
Mr.- Robinson opposed the return
of the franking privilege.
Mr. Springer Ifered an amendment ,
that the official envelope , such ai
used by postmasters and departmenl
fficinla be granted members for use
for official business ; this not , however ,
to apply to members of the prcscnJ
congress. Voted down.
The senate amendment was then
rejected by a unanimous voto. At 4
o'clock the bill was sent to the com
mittee of conference and the house
went into a committee of the whole
\ . .again upon the tariff commission.
Mr. Cox ( Now York ) spoke in
opposition to the bil , urging 'there
should bo immediate action , while
- this plan * vould cause long delay. Ho
also opposed the internal revenue
system , holding especially that is gives
revenue officials privileges of oppress
ing the people. He also spoke against
the present tariff system as oppressive
upon the farming community and
Without action the committee roso.
The committee on railways and
canals reported favorably the bill for
the construction of the Illinois and
Mississippi river canal popularly
known as the Henncpin canal.

' Brady's counsel filed pleas in abate
ment on the ground that illegal and
unsworn witnesses were received in i
the grand jury room during its sil
. Abatement in the pleas of the star
rout cases filed to-day sets forth that
P. H. Woodward and Z. L. Tidball
appeared before the grand jury with
out legal authority , with printed
statements and arguments in relation
to the indictment under consideration
which were read to the jury and left
with them , and that Woodward and
' Tidball made arguments before the
grand jury to convince thorn that in
dictments should bo found ; that they
also took before the grand jury affi
davits of parties not witnesses ; that
the grand jury found , endorsed , sign
ed and returned the indict
ment without having heard it
read and without having , consider
ed its allegations ; and further ,
that the defendants were not bound
over by any court or committing
magistrate or other competent officers.
Tidball is charged with placing before
the jury a pamphlet report of star
route investigations before the com-
mitk'o of the house of representatives.
The ground of the judge's overruling
of the places is that investigation o
the grand jury must bo done any
way. It is effected there will bo n
delay beyond May 4th , the day now
set for trial to commence.
