In tlio Senate.
, July 10. Mr. Conger called
up the house bill giving the consent of con
gress to the construction of a bridge by the
municipalities of Memonlncc , .Mich. , and
Mailetle , Wls. , over the Mmnonlnco rlvei.
Passed without amendment.
Thu senate then resumed debate on the
olcoinaigailnc bill , and Mr. Uiay addiesscd
tlio senate In opposition to the bill.
Mi. Harris also opposed the bill , on the
ground that the only power congress had to
pass the bill was Its power to levy taxes for
icvciiuc. But It was not pictcndcd that there
was at this time the slightest necessity for an
increase of icv enue. Tlio bill was , therefore ,
on Its face , a false pretense , lie had offered
an amendment making U unlawful to make
oleomaigatinc within tlio District of Colum
bia or the ten itoiles unless It was distinctly
maiked DS sueh. He was distinctly In laver
of the bill to th.it extent , but no further , and
he would bo glad If eveiy state would so leg
islate. Mi. Han is' amendment was icjectcd
jeas , IS : nays , itt.
After sumo fuither debate , Mr. Butler's
amendment was laid on the table yeas , 2 ;
nays , 10.
Mr. Edmunds said that ho wished to cor
rect the Impression which some senator
seemed to have that this bill pioposcd to tax
one Interest for the bcnclit of another inter"
cst. Ho did not so understand the bill. If
he did , he should bo against It. Ho supposed
that out ot every 100 people who
ate oleomargarine compounds , ninety-
nine believed that they were eating
butter , In the sense | ln which their crand-
fatheis and grandmothers and themselves
( when childien ) understood that teim. In
the lew ing of taxes congress was icquired
by the constitution to look to the ueneral
welfare. He supposed it was to the general
welfare to suppiess fiatids and cheats , and to
guard the Inteiests of the best portions of
the community. Congicss had the right ,
thcretoie , to discriminate against frauds ami
to tax them heavily , while It did not under
take to tax honest vocations.
Air. Vest opposed the bill. "If I vote for
this bill , " hu said , " 1 vote to subvert the
principles ot fiee government. I vote to use
the machinery of the goveinment out of the
sphcio where the constitution has placed It ,
in 01 del to foi ward and advance the Inter
ests of ono set ot citizens at tlio expense of
anothei cct. If fiauds aie committal by this
oleomargailnc industry the states are the
onlj instiuiuontalitles that can taKe chaigo
ol those trauds and punish 01 prevent them. "
Mr. Vnn Wvck advocated the passage of
the bill. The question here , ho said , was
whether one honest industry should be pro
tected against fraud of another. This Dill ,
he admitted , was not lor revenue purposes ,
nor was It to build i > p one Industiy at the ex
pense of another. Congress simply said tiiat
tue best way to piovldo as.unst ii.uid was to
reculate the nunutactuio ot the aitiele. It
was said that people used the aitielo because
It was cheaper , but that people did not get
the boiieat of its cheapness because ot this
fiaudulent branding. Congicss undertook
in this bill to deal with that question , and ho
saw no constitutional objection to it. *
-Mr. Butler said that this bill was most fla
grant and unblushing in its violations ot the
constitution of any ever introduced In con
gress. Ho asked H the aitiliclal coloring of
butter was not tiaudulent.
JIi. Ingalls , In elucid.iting that question ,
pioduceda vial of coluilng matter and com
mented on the circular accompanying it.
The preparation , ho said , pretended to bo
manutactuicd at Burlington. Vt. [ A laugh
at the expense ol Edmunds. ] This vial , ho
Slid , was wan anted bj the lirm which put
up pertucted butter coloring at Bmllngton ,
\t. , lor dairy purposes was waiianted to
eoloi 00 pounds ot winter butter. It
had been pietemled that the. dairy
men of Veiiuont and elsewhere
weio engaged , In their bucolic honesty
and simplicity , in a struggle with the her
culean clients of maiiulactuicrs of oleomai-
gailuo. One sentence In the clicul.ir recom
mended the coloiing matter as giving the
butter a tint like the highest giado of Jersey
butter , and no exneit can detect It. It was
waiianted to add 5 cents per pound to the
value ol white biuter [ laughter ] , and icturii
a dollar tor evei > cent itcoit.
.Mr. Miller knew nothing about tills colorIng -
Ing matter. When the distinguished senator
( Ingalls ) was going over Its wouderlul quali
ties ho was e.urled back to his boyhood days
wiien. on training ilujs , lie used to sec a man
standing on n wagon auctioning his bogus
goods 01 bogus Jewelly , or offered to the people
ple some "eli\li of lilu. " Whether the sena-
toi ever bad any expeilenco ot that kind he
( Millei ) did not know , but the senator had
shown gieat aptness tor it. If the senator
failed in Ills picscnt calling he could cer
tainly succeed in that kind ot woik. It had
always been known tlmt coloring matter
was used In buttci , just as salt was , rnd no
body over icgardedlt as fraud. The senator
fiom Kansas usually came to the capital with
a llamlng red necktie. Why not wear ono of
the iiatiu.il color ot the cocoon' . ' Because the
senator admiied some other color , and that
was as truoof butter as eveiythlngelse.
Mr. Ingalls said the senator tioniNcw
York had seen tit to descend into the aiena
of pcisoii.illtles , His humor was very much
like the attempt of a hippopotamus to dance
on a slack rope. [ Lamrhtcr. | The senator
had seen lit to refer to his vouthtul avoea-
tlon and to present a spectacle of a peddler
dealing In bosus joweliy and olKlr. To that
hiihad this icmaikto make : That whatever
he mlKht have done. , ho had never stood bc-
fore the senate advocating a ineasmo In
which ho had the strongest personal Interest.
The senator from New York had done that.
Tlio senator was in the daliy business. Ho
owned a dairy farm and had alien ! of dally
cattle , putting Its product on tlio market as
the prod net of the Oak Hill or Oak Leaf
Creamery company , and he used the whole
po ver of his ofllclal station as a senator and
as chairman of a committee to get the meas
ure away fiom the commllto to which
It belonged and have It lefericd to
his own committee. Ho stood on the lloor of
the senate day after day advocating a nicas-
mo which was to Increase dliectly thu profits
of his own product. ( After Mr. ingnlls bad
delivered this , with meat emphasis ami
effect , IIP paused for several seconds amidst
tno most profound silence. ) A moro shame-
till spectacle had never been presented to
the American people than had been pre
sented in regard to the measure. In the
othec house It had been under the leadership
of the chairman of a committee who was
himself engaged in the dairy business , and
In this body that gentleman was leinfoiced
by tlio chairnran of the committee on agt ( cul
ture ( Millet ) , who was engaged in the same
business , and who w as to prolit by the legis
ilr. Miller , apparently laboring under great
excitement , rose to reply. Ho denied having
lefeuedto the senator's ( Ingallsj calllus In
early life , and went on to say that whether
this bill became a law or not it would not add
one farthing to aiiyprotit which he could poss
ibly lecelvo. No sneers at the dairymen ol
the country , uo implication that he vva * actu
ated by base and corrupt motives would
cease his mouth. Ho appealed from that in
famous charge to his constituents thronn-
out all the great rural districts of Now York.
Ho left the judgement of the matter to them
and not to any man oh the floor of the senate
who ventured to charge him with corruption.
These were words which the senator or any
other man would not dare to speak to him
outside of the scnato chamber. They might
shield themselves behind the constitution and
behind parllnmnitaiy rules , but be would go
to his constituents on that basis and thtro ho
would leave It.
Mr. Butler closed the debate and senate ad
journed. _ _

Mr. Henderson of Iowa , said that ho did

( lulled by claimant , unless It shall appear
that the land has been sold or conveyed to

suing of the patent for the same. This pro
vision he regarded as nn Incentive to fraud ,
as it required the commissioner to issue a pa

purchasers , oven though theoiiginal title had
been acquired by fraud. He hoped that the

its disagreement to this amendment.
