WAsiiJ.N-n-rov , Feb. 2 [ Special Telegram. !
In the senate to-day Mr. Van Wyck called
up and passed his bill affecting real and per
sonal property held by defunct national
banking Institutions. It Is a measure of very
general Importance , and will likely secure
an early passage in the house. It provides
that wherever a receiver of a national bank
findn It necessary In his opinion , in order to
fully protect and benefit his trust to the ex-
lent of any equities that such trust may have
In any property , real or personal , by reason
of any bond , mortgage , assignment or other
legal and proper claim attaching thereto , and
which said proieity | Is tobo sold under any
execution , decree of foreclosure , or proper
order of any court of jurisdiction , he may
certify the facts In the case together
with his opinion as lo the state of thu prop
erty Iob3 so sold and the value of thu equity
Ills trust may havu in the same , to thu
comptroller ot currency , together with a re
quest for right and authority to use and cm-
ploy so much of the money of thu trust as
may lientc.'ssary to purchase .such property
at such safe , and with the approval of the
comptroller of currency and tlio secretary of
the treasury he may draw upon .such funds
as may be In his custody or deposited with
the treasurer of Ihe United States for the
purpose of which the allowance was made.
This will elve receivers of national banks an
oppoitunlty to protect real and personal
property belonging to their trust from sac-
rllieo by forced sale.
Senalor Van Wyck said to the Dun correspondent
pendent this evening that the bill ho Intro-
troduccd yesterday to confirm entries of lands
heretofore made under thu land laws of the
United States was Intended to , and doubt
less would , settle whatever dispute there may
be between settlers and the general land
olllco growing out of a reversion or different
interpretation of the laws and rulings by the
administration , and promulgated by other
administrations. It would , too , quiet any
fear that the settlers may havu In thu future
on account of changes of administration.
Mr. Van Wyck intends to glvo this measure
personal attention , and believes It will be
come a law. It provides that any entry here
tofore made under the land laws of the
United States , in conformity with thu rules ,
regulations and decisions of llio general
land oil lee and Interior department at the
time such entry was made , is confirmed to
the extent , and shall bu perfected and pro
ceed to patent the samu as if tlio rules , regu
lations and decisions had not been reversed
or modified ; provided , that such entry must
have been made in good faith , and no
charges of fraud have been made against
tlio samc.and In casoanycharjrcs of fraud have
been made , they shall bo investigated In the
same manner ami wltli the same effect as if
the rules , regulations and decisions under
which the entry was made had not been
modified or reversed.

ocomotive. Ho comes and goes at all
lours. He is to-day in Dakota and next
vuulc on the coast of California. His
signature will bu found on every hotul
egislor in tlio laud. No place i.s too ru-
note for him to ) ) enutratu , no hardship
00 great for him to endure , if he can
only sell goods. Hu will ride all night on

ieul : olV-somu competitor , lie is bright ,
jnurgiitic and a jolly companion , a great
f-tory teller , and thu newest and best are
'omul in his repertory. No "chestnuts"
'or thu dririnmcr. There is no event snf-
iuiuntto cast a gloom over Ids lifu save
Jiaf' only of failure to get an order , but
this is quickly dispelled , and his samples
ire again exposed to the view of the rural
merchant. An order is secured , and he
is oil for new fluids to conquer.
Uel'oro starting "on the road" it is
necessary to have a complete route laid
out , with the , names of towns and
customorri to bo visited. These are pre
pared , thu .sample trunks packed and the
drummer listens toyords of advice from
the "old man , " which usually consist of
remarks about cutting down expenses.
These admonitions , however , rest lightly
on the drummer's sonl.and with a pocket
full of inoiiuy and a bundle of mileage
tickets ho is on' . Ho takes a seat in the
train and iu duo time arrives at his lirst
town and immediately prepares for
business. His samples are spread out in
the hotul sample-room , and ho goes out
to find his man. If he succeeds in getting
the merchant into the den where his
goods are on exhibition the order is in
variably secured , and no ono is moro
surprised than ho who gives it , because
ho was positive before the drummer met
him that his stouk was complete and
nothing was needed.
The drummer is a happy individual ,
lie i.s at homo everywhere. Ho is great
on flirtations , and no time is regarded
lost spent in talking lo a pretty girl. Ho
carries on his shoulders the burden of
his house , yet llio weight has not thu ef
fect to depress his spirits. Hu has confi-
donee iu hi.s ability and knows the coun
try demands his goods , which ho is
bound to sell. Thu holul is his house and
his castle hi.s homo. He knows ovury
room , and as ho writes hi.s munu on the
register tells the cleric which one ho pro-
furs. Ho always puts up at the. best , and
is on terms of intimate acquaintance
with everybody , from the landlord down
to the bell-boy. The drummer la usually
a good player at billiards , whist , and
"old sludgu , " while very row have n
bettor idea of the valiio of a "full
hand" than ho. Hu somulimes make *
up liis mind to improve hi * time by read
ing , and turns over a "now loaf , " csehuw-
ing all such vanities and expensive
amusements as billiards and poker , but
the chances tire the next evening finds
him iu company with some Kindred spir
its , playing n "bob-tail" with such uwsur-
unco us to win n jack-pot which had been
opuncil by a timid individual with three
queens. Sometimes , however , it happen *
unit tlio iieklo goddess has not been good
to him , and it requires considerable llg
uring to balance expense account. Uu
lucky , indeed , must thu cards run for him
if hu uau't even things up in his monthly
statement to the house , And old travelers
ors have noticed that the drummer win
is unlucky at poker usually soils the most
goods. This Iu because un expense , no-
count will easily pass scrutiny at "tin

Among the measures favorably reported
fiom the committee was a Joint resolution by
Mr. Hlalr from the committee on woman's

and the minority reserved the right to pre

Mr. lllddlcbergcr offered the folloxvlng resolution
llcsolvcd , Thatlt Is the sense of the senate
that the executive of thu United States Is
not restricted by constitutional law In re
moving or the suspension of appointees ;
that thu senate has no right to require that
reasons shall be given for such removals or

to call for any paper relating to thu conduct
of removed or suspended appointees , or as to
the qu.ililicatloii ami fitness of nil persons
whoso names are presented to the senate for
confirmation or rejection ; and It is the duty
of the executive to comply with all demands
for the same.
In offering the resolution , Mr. Kiddlcbcr-
gcr said his purpose was simply to bring it
up in open debate. It did not involve any
so-called hluh prerogative of the senate xvhen
t should go Into secret or executive session ,
ml only that abstract question as to whether
ho executive could be called on or required
o give reasons for removals. Mr. Kiddle-
tergcr asked for Immediate consideration of
, ho resolution.
Mr. Cockerel objected.
Mr. I'nuh said he would submit either to-
ilay or to-morrow a substitute for Mr. Klddle-
wger'i ? resolution.
Mr. Stanford offered a concurrent resolu
tion , which was agreed to , providing for an
investigation by the committee on public

at any time to have trustees for its manage

Mr. Ingalls' motion was agreed to and the
resolution was referred. *
Mr. 1'ugh submitted the substitute already
referred to by him to take the place of Jlld-
dlebcrger's resolution , and asked that it bo
presented and lie over till to-morrow.
Mr. Pugh's substitute is substantially as
1 That executive power is expressly vested
IV ) the constitution In the president of the
United States so that he shall take care that
the laws bo faithfully executed.
3 That thu power of appointment to fede
ral office Is an executive noxrer to bo exer

10 ordinary man. He was ono of the foxv
; reat men whoso greatness increased and
whoso sublimity bucamu more sublime tliu
icarei- lie xvas approached. Ho was an
loncst man. Suspicion nox'cr breathed cal-
unny against his Integrity , llo passed
lirough the fiery furnace xvlthout a scar.
Ills statue , to fully represent him. should bu
chiseled in spotless marble. He dally prac
ticed the grandest of all virtues , charity.

Mr. Hroxvnc , as a political opponent of Mr.
llcndricks , bore witness to his sterling qnal-
tles of heart and mind. Ho was without
challenge the chief representative Indl-
ina democracy. If he did not forinulatn Its

lid not ( jo before , Jio wont xvell abreast of
iIs party alignment. Ho went Into thu thickest
of the light , coneratnlated his forces in vic-

, xras not a political boss , llogox-erned with
out whip or bastlle. He was a king , but ho
reigned by common consent and made his
subjects Ids peers. Hu was ever true to him
self , true to his honor. No temptation lie-
billed to venality. No dishonest dollar ever
( inched the palm of his hand.
Mr. Springer cited anecdotes in the life of
Mr. llcndricks illustrative of his kindness
ind charity of heart , and paid his tribute to
; hu purity of thu public and private charac-
cr of the deceased. In conclusion lie said :
'As death lays his icy hands on kings , so
jimst all die , sooner or later. Our vice presi
dent xvas no exception to the Inexorable law.
[ n his death the people mourned the loss of
i great and good man. Universal sorroxv
ivas manifested on every hand. The highest
loners xvurc. paid him , but these honors and
: ho people's sorroxv cannot call him back

The custom of ordering a copy of cacffi

member led to the Introduction of a icsolu
tlon to this cITect early In thu session. TlliJJ
argument over It has occupied a good doa.1 op
valuablotlmu In both bodies of the leclsloV
lure , and It was thought to be llnally boltlcu
last Thursday , when a conference
committee report against taking any
of the papers was made and
accepted1 , by both houses , but on Friday
Mr. Dcloney , of the council , who had been
rusticating at Pueblo during the week , re
turned , and about the llrst thing ho did waste
to bob up serenely with a notice of another
resolution ordering the papers. The Held Is
therefore to be fought over again. The total ox ;
pensnsof the papers would not bomoio thail'
SliO , ) and the time which has been consumed ,
It would seem , In debating the advisability
of taking them , Is worth more than that.
.Mr. Mcl'ortnlck has Introduced a bill for
the construction of a jail at HulValo.
Two bills having in view tlto construction
of a court house at Sundance , Crook county ,
were Introduced slmillaiieously In the house
and council on the 27th. The bills provide
for bonding the county for § 23,000.
By the provisions of a bill now before the
house , county commissioners will bo
authorized to appoint one or more officers
whose duty It shall be to tm that the game
laws are enforced. Such ofllccrs shall bo
authorized to arrest violators of the law anil
take them before tiie nearest justice of the
peace. Their pay shall be So per day for the
actual time they aio to be engaged , this- ,
amount embracing expenses.
Uy far the most Important fact connected
with this legislature Is one" which probably
will never appear upon the surface of. the
proceeding.1 ! . This is that the Wyoming
Stock 0rowers * association will not occupy
the greater portion of the time of the sesslo.il
with bills Intended to afford it financial as
sistance. This has como about In a way
which , under the circumstances , Is somewhat
peculiar. For some wcels It has been knowp
that the stock association contemplated lld' |
introduction of bills which would appropriate
in the aggregate about $25,000 out of the tcrt'j '
ritorlal treasury. One of the items to be pal * j
for was the quarantine yards at this city , I
constructed last year at a cost of & 12,000 |
As soon as Mr. Teschemacher's bill providing
for repeal of the law of 1834 , which gave
Cheyenne the licenses from the saloons an4 -
gaming tables ( about § 18,000 annually ) , and ]
the effect of which would be to lighten thotiup
on the slock interests In the county to tfiac
extent , appcared , the papers of this city Im
mediately contained significant editorial
utterances. The Sun was the lirst to .speak , ;
and it declared in unmistakable terms that
the statute books contained all the legislation ' ,
which embraced appropriations In tavor o ?
the stock association that the territory could
reasonably stand. A meeting of the execu
tive committee of the association was called
and the editor of the Sun was sent for. The
Interview was brief and to the point , and the
executive committee was Informed that the
Sun would declare war on any measure whlcfi
looked toward the expenditure .of moro
money for any of the association's 'purposes.
The executive committee deliberated und
decided that : iu attempt to force legislation
would be too big n contract and , In consef
ijucnco , only one bill is to bo introduced , and ,
that is an amendment of the maverick law ;
The substance of It will bo that the maverick *
will bo sold at the end of every day tfl
the highest bidder lor cash or n certified
A bill Is being progressed as fast as possible
which provides for the encouragement of treo'
planting. It will probably become u law
after being amended , and will allow a rediuv
tlon In the assessment of a man's property of
5100 for every aero of crowing forest trees
not more than fifteen feet apart , and 8200 for
every acre of fruit trees not moro than tnlrty
Three voluminous mining hills have been
Introduced. Ono provides for the appoint-
mnnt of a coal mine Inspector at1,000 pay
per annum , and requires the accurate
weighing of coal as mined. Another
provides that the territory shall
pay § 1,000 to thu widow and 5500 to each o
the chlldicn of u miner killed by a Urn damp
explosion , and then shall recover the amount
fiom thu company owning thu mines. A
third is by Mr. Kuno , of Fremont county ,
and especially applies to the location mid
woiklng of mineral lodes.
A bill Is before the house defining the
boundaries between Johnson county and
Crook , and Johnson and Albany.
It Is probable that ; v bill creating Ihe oflKje
of tunitorlal geologist and mining engineer
will fall to pass. It will receive but luke
warm assistance irom the Luramio county
delegation , as the ollicn Is not believed to beef
of any practical benefit , ami the money can
