theio have been at the white house , eight In
all , but never before to-day has the highest
dignitary in ( lie land bowed his head within
Its historic * walls to receive the blessing ol
the chinch on his union in the holy bonds of
mntilmony. Fiom itho very dawn of the
wedding day the city seemed alive to the ap-
proachihg event. Little knots ot idlcts talked
It over on the sidewalks in front ot the
hotels. Sedate matrons gossiped as
they passed alone the streets and
bevies of laughing gills chatted
and speculated about the coming
momentous ceiemony. Manywcio the oni
ons glances that sought to pleico the draped
windows of the whlto house , and numbeilc.ss
wcio the comments and speculations ot
loitcieis who gathered early in the afternoon
within the gioiinds. Llttlo or nothing In the

much talked of event was at hand. Thn still
and muiky ha/.o of the eaily forenoon had
now wholly given place to clear skies
and warm southerly brewes , while
the yellow , slanting sunbeams flit
tered tniough the follago of the
paik ami made flickcrm ? pictures upon
tlio velvety turf beneath. The great fountain
did IU bust to nttinct attention , spouting itt )
cooling spray to tlio voigo of Us giaiiitu

oftioplcal green filled the marginal gaps In
the picture. The scats In the paik acioss the
avenue wore occupied by lawn-clad maidens ,
while half the } oung loyeis In town , moved
by the common sympathy which stlr.s roman
tic susceptibilities of sixty mil
lions , took winding walks in the
line of their evening piomciiado ,
and peculated upon the emotions which aio
supposed to fill the hearts ot biiduarul gloom.
The successive ariivals of guests were
watched with interest , and their names weie
whispered by the more knowing to their
companions. Suddenly tlio strains ot the
wedding match floated thiougli the opened
windovvs , and them vvas a general exclama

Senate.
WASIIINGTOX , Juno 2. After routine
business the Northern Pacific forfeiture bill
was placed bcfoio tlio senate , then formally
laid asldo to permit Mr. Drown to speak on
banlauptcy. Mr. Blown said tlio bill would
Involve the putting into Involuntary bank
ruptcy ot poisons who should bo thitty days
behind inpayments. What would ourconntry
merchants say to this ? They were usually
more piompt in their payments than the city
merchants , yet countiy inoichants weie
sometimes unavoidably behind in payment
for more than tliiity days. The people ol the
United States would not stand .such Iniqui
ties as this bill.
The consideiatioii of the Xoilhern Pacific
foiteituio bill was then resumed.
The question pending was on Mr. Van
Wyck's proposed amendment , piovidlng lei
the foi teituro , not ot tlio lands ot the Wallula
blanch alone , but of lands appcitalnlng to
such blanch mads us have not been com
pleted at thetiinuot tlio nassngoof this act.
Mr. Call said tlio bill as icpoilcd to tliu senate -
ate evaded the gieat question which the
vmbllc opinion ot tlio United States was
toicing on congress. The ilctcimiiiation ol
our people was that all unearned
grants be foi felted. Some tidily million
acres of giant to tlioNoitlicin Pacific had not
been earned and .should be forfeited , ami
between thirty and toity millions of dollars
beyond the cost of the load would bo made by
the proicctois of the Northern Pacific enter
prise. Mr. Call said ho had been Inloimed
that an oiler ot thicc hundicd million dolluis
bad been made by an Kucllsh syndicate for
tlio land giant. of the .Noithern Pacific on n.
basis of Si50 per aero.
Mr. ( ieoigo slated that the whole cost of the
Noithcin 1'acllie was estimated by the com
missioners of lailroads at % 7r..000,000 , while
tlio whole land giant ol r-.OOU.lKK ) acics at 84
per acio would make ? lfW,000,000 which
would leave fctU.OOO.ODO tor the piojcctois of
thuio.ul.
At 2 o'clock unfinished business , the tail-
road laud taxation bill , was placed bcloic the
senate.
Mossis , Dolph and Plumb supported the
bill. The senate adopted an amendment
pioposcd by Mr. Plumb on behalf of the com
mittee on public lands , piovldlng for the le-
payment in pi oper eases ot tliu cost ot sm-
voylns topuieliascis.
.Mr. Kvarts submitted an amendment to ox-
cliido uiibiiivojcd landi , which was
agieed to.
Mr. lloai's amendment , horelofoio still-
milted , was then bionght up lor lonsldeia-
lion. It piovhles that not mole tlian ( iio
aeies ol land , sold under tliu piovlshms ol
this act , shall bo pinchased by aiiyonopni-
MIII , or nhall tlicicalter be acimlicd or ovv ned

tltlo or Interest ncqulicd In violation tlicicot
sball bo tm lolled to llio United States with
out any otlici act , 01 entry , or piocess what
ever. After debate , without action upon tbo
amendment , the .senate went into executive
session and boon adjoin ned.
WASIIINOTOV , Juno 2. The house went
Into committee of the whole , Mr. Spilnger
of Illinois , in the chair , on thuoleomaigailno

can liulustiy , despondency , If not dcsjiaii ,

jet this v , as tlio substantial puiposo ot the
vicious bill now under coiisidei.ttlon.
Mr.O'Feirall of Virginia said tlioaigumcnt
nmdo Uiat thp pabsago of this bill would tend
to a reduction ot the tarllt taxes was the best
argument which could boolleied why the
democrats should favor It , and had only
strengthened him in his advocacy of the
measure. It was. a proposition to build un
one honest industry at the cxpensoof afiand-
nleiit and dishonest one.
On motion an amendment was adopted In
serting I he vvoid "knovviiiKly" In the clause
imposing a penalty upon every person who
purchased or receives for sale uny oleomatga-
rinofrom any manufacture ! who has not
paid the special tax.

Mr. UreckcnrldRoJ of Arkansas said

sity or having n conservative body at the
oilier end of the capital , than the case with
which the gentlemen hail ilddon down every
constitutional barrier , and ( locked together
In Ill-assorted numbers to the support of this
ulll. It was the most astonishing and odious
nieasuro ever presented to congress.
Mr. llolman of Indiana ) spoke In favor of
the bill and advocated the repeal of the to
bacco tav.
Mr. Morrison of IHinoKI called attention
to the fact that oleoniarcarlno could not bo
taxed unless it were sold , and It would not
bo sold unless It were u ed for food , and who
would consume the food , the well-to do or

of any tav , U ho wont to the manufactory

Mr. Henley sustained the constitutionality
of the bill.
Mr. McMillcn moved to sit Ike out the
clause which piov ides that one-half of the
lines aim penalties imposed by the act shall
co to Iho informer. The house would not. In
his judgment , do Itself justice if It enacted
such an obnoxious piece of legislation. The
pending motion was agreed to Til to 2T1.
Then , In accordance witli arrangements
made this afternoon , the commute rose and
rupoi ted the bill to tlio house , with Iho un-
