pensions to furnish information in ref
erence to the pension roll , and the
Srobablo effect upon it if the pending
ill to increase the pension of per
sona who lost mi leg _ or nrm in the
service , br are suffering from equal
disabilities , is passed , After discue-
sioti and'umondmont directing the
commiesiouer to furnish a complete
list of persons borne on the roll , the
resolution was adopted.
Senitor Sawall gave noiica that ho
would call up at nn early data the bill
or Uio loliot of Fitz John Porter.
The eentito then took up the bill
to establish A uniform system of bank
ruptcy , and Senator Ingalls proceeded
to explain its provisions.
In concluding ho submitted certain
minor amendments agreed upon by
the aub committees , which were or
dered printed. After the disctmion
the bill wont over as uofiniohcd busi
ness. Several bills on the calendar
pained. In executive session the nom
inations wore referred. Adjourned.
Mr. Wlllio , ( Ky. ) , offered a resolu

committee on civil service reform to
inquire into the details of the alleged

managers of the domocratlo party from
the Cobdeu club and from the free club for use in the election of
"Letitbs adopted , " cried several
democrats , but Mr. Kasoou objected
to present consideration , for thu same
reason which prompted him to object
to the Willis resolution ; that commit
tee had as much work before it as it
could accomplish.
Mr. Townsend ( ills. ) called atten
tion to the fact that the objection oamo
from the republican side , and then the
resolution was referred

, Mr. KaBson prbsented thp iews of
the" minority of 'the" committee on
ways and moans on the internal rev
enue bill. They wore ordered printed.
The minority report is signed by
Mvrsrs. Kasson , Dunnell , McKinley ,
Haskoll , Morrison and Rutsoll. They
say they are not prepared to recom
mend the entire abolition of Iho tax
nor run the risk uf reducing the rev
enue of the government below the
amounts which will evidently be re
quired to meet arrearage of pension
in addition to o.hor current expanses
of the government by extrava
gant reduction in either source
of public revenue. It is a
much more agreeable duty
and inuoli moro feasible to reduce the
taxes ( rum time to time SB the un
known extent of our revenues shall
bo developed than to ro-impnse them
to meet the cspontos of the govern
ment. Any reduction which it now
appears safe to make wo bolievp should
bo effected rather by the abolition of
tixes more closely related to the use
and convenience of our people.
Messrs. Dunnoll ind Haakell filed
a cuppleraontal minority report , in
which they favor the abolition of nil
internal revenue taxes except those
on malt and spirituous liquors , tobao-
CJ , snuff ) and cigars. It it becomes
apparent the government does not ro-
qulro the entire amount taken
trom liquors nnd tobacco , a prop
osition reducing these taxss
iruy bo favorably considered.
They believe , hoivover , before thia
tax is abolished , thorp should bo an
comprehensive a revision of the tar id
made as the length of the session will
permit. That revision should be made
entirely independent of other Bourcot
of revenue , and there should bo suoli
adjustment of duties decreed as will
fairly protect American Industrie !

Bill Providing for its Admission na n

Sp.clal Dhpatch to the CTobe-D.'mocrat.
WASHINGTON , Deoomber 4. Dele
gate Pottigrow , of Dakota , said to
The Globe-Democrat correspondent
that ho intended to press for passage
the bill providing for a division of
Dakota into two territories. While
he intends to do all he can to secure
the passage of Dakota admission bill ,
lie ia inclined to think that there is
little prospect of this being accom
plished this session. Bat in the
event of a'failutu to " ccurn this , he
thinks it is very important to the
people of Dakota that there should
ba a division of the territory. He
said that from a conversation had
with senators he understands that it
19 the purpose of those having the
Dakota admission bill in change to
as early as possible. The bill Is the
first on the sonata calendar as unfin
ished business.
Chairman Burrows , of the House
Committee on Territories , said to youi
correspondent this evening that he
intended to do all ho could to secure
the passage of the bill this session.
The bill is the thirty-sixth in ordei
on the House calendar. Among the
measures which precedes it are some
very important ones which It la very
doubtful can bo passed this winter ,
and as the unanimous consent can not
bo obtained to take the Dakota bill
up out of its order , it in extreme ! )
probable that the House bill can not
bo pasiod , The bill will have to come
from the senate , and unions it if
buried on the speaker's table , will be
passed by the Honao this xiulor. It
is possible that the democrats maj
defeat the bill by fillibustoring tc
prevent its being taken from tin
speaker's table.

scarcely had a moment's relief till last
Saturdiy night , when ho became de
lirious. Ho Induced his attendant to
go down stairs for n moment , and no
sooner was the nurse's back turned
than Cavauaugh sprang from
his bed , and picking up r
largo trunk , dashed it througl
iho window-sash and then jumped
after it. The nolso soon brought i

gave pursuit , but the sufferer was flael

worse , the spasms grow more frequent
and it was with difficulty that ho wai

his last.
During his illness the patient wai
approached by his wife , whoattomptec
to soothe him ono of hia spasms. It

Within the past twenty-four hours a
politic * ! conference has boon hold
hero. KB members comprised pri
marily the lenders of the democratic
party in all Michigan , Iowa nnd Wh
cousin , with a largo delegation of the
foremost members of the party from
aevoral other western and middle
states , Its members represented not
only the notivo political loaders of the
party , bnt the editors of the principal
democratic papers. The conference
waa of long duration , and the discus
sion was earnest , candid and generous ,
while the ontito situation of the coun
try received thorough nnd careful con
32Tho chief Importance of this con
ference lies in the fact , that its pur-
pete wan to settle upon , as far as prac
ticable at the present time , a demo
cratic presidential candidate. It waa
the unanimous verdict that such tv
candidate mast conio from the west.
In looking over the field and the men
by statea UiodiscusaiourcgardingOhlo
resulted in the conclusions that the
October vote ( I'cndlotnn nnd Paine )
put that state outside the palo of prev
identinl possibilities. Thin suttkd
upon , there wnro left the mtups of
four men to bo diocusscd. These
were Palmer and Morrison , of Illinois ,
Justice Field , of Oilifornln , and Mo-
Donald , of Indiana.
The general drift nf feeling regard
ing Ex Governor Palmer was that
while ho is a in in of irreproachable
character , the highest and bust nature ,
und at present thoroughly Identified
with the party , ho wna not n demo
cratic veteran , and it wixa thoroughly
suttlcd that no man within the purty
who can not show n continuously per
fect record as a democrat , and whose
entire antecedents were democratic ,
could bo seriously considered.
The name of Morrison was dwelt
upon nt considerable length , and while
it was conccdod that ho postages many
Bttrlicg qualities for tx atnndard bear
er , it was concluded that hia dictator
ial brutquenoss and inhnrmoniou ;
methods with the national manager !
of the democratic pirty made it 1m
possible for colcolion to rest upor
him. His great ability was fully rco
ognizad , and it was agreed upon that
his candidacy for the spoakorship n
the next house should be , strong ! ;
urged , as it was generally ooncodoi
that Iliudall was no longer an avail
able candidate.
Regarding Judge Field , that gentle
man was meat favorably considered
.but his present gosiliou on the sc
piema bonohvfrom whloh'lt wOnld1" b
necessary for him to retire , seemed a
insurmountable obstacle.
Finally , when the name of Me
Donald came before the conference fo
ducusaion , there seemed to bo
spontaneous . . and unanimous accori
. upon his fitness. This roach ed a dr
l. | . groo bordering upon onthusumn. Hi
record was thoroughly dwelt upon
and the different members n
the conference discussed the sam
in all its bearings. His recon
upon the money question , and hi
o insistent , honorable and p&triotl
course , during the war , his earnes
and able support of , all wise meuuro
of reconstruction , his well known can
did , manly and fearless position upo :
thu tariff question , and the fact at al
times , on all measures , affecting th
good not only of thodemocratiopnrty
but of the whole country , lie ha
proven himself not only a doaiocr.i
of lifelong consistency , but a etatui
man of sufo conservative an
pitriotm methods. Another matte
of importance and Interest we
aho informally dliciissed. This we
in connection with the name of CToloi
el Nitasr of VVisconsin , nnd it waa gor
orally conceded that if this brillltu
orator nod most nblu man made th
nice for governor of Wisconsin no :
fall , as it In believed ho will , oocurln
un election , as would certainly JTBO' '
ho would lead the Wiooouuiu dolcgi
tinu to the next democratic rmUoni
convention , and take the second pint
on the presidential ticket so surely the
ho did so.
