Logan , were presented and placed on hie.

Thobonalo bill concerning posloftlccs of
the third class , providing llial they shall not
be changed Into postolllccs of the fourth class
where thu gross receipts amount to Sl.DOO
per year nrrd vvhetu tlio box receipts and
commissions constituting the postmaster's
compensation amount to Sl.OOO vvas , on mo
tion of Mr. Wilson of Iowa , taken from the
calender and passed.
At 1:03 : the senate , on motion of Mr. Ed
munds , proceeded to the consideration
of the senate bill , to nnthorliro
Iho president of the United States to
protect and defend the rights of American
llslnng vessels , American llshermcn , Ameri
can trading and other vessels in certain cases.
Mr. Hoar suggested the Insertion
ot the words "or unjustly vexed or
li.irra-.sed therein by llio authorities
thereof. " lie thought the bill would
bo much safer If It contained that general
Mr. Ingalls thought those fishery dinicnl-
tles miisl iiiillmalely bo sellled either by nc-
gollallon or by war. This measure was
distinctly ono of retaliation. It was an cyo
for an eyu and a toolh for n loolh ; llsh for
fish ; insull lor insult , wrong for wrong. llo
tlioiiL-ht It Important before the senate was
called upon to vote that the committee on
foreign relations should advlsn the scnato
whether this measiiiu was intended to be pa-
cilicor hostile , whether It vvas In effect an
Invitation tonegotlato or practically a declara
tion of war. There was no use in disguising
tlio proposition. There was a feeling
of Irltallon , Iho real party In
Interest being Great Itritaln , and
not Canada , which was nt any moment ,
if thopiescnl nltiludo was continued , liable
to lead to discintent which might ripen Into
exasperation and this Into open hostility. It
was therefore of very great importance that
nt thu threshold , the outset , In the vestibule ,
the senate .should understand whether the
bill vvas intended as a pacific or n hostllo
measure. He ( moled some sentences from
thorcpoitof Iho committee on foreign rela
tions and remaiKed Unit countries have been
Inundated with blood on less provocation.
The conduct of tlio Dominion and Great
Urltaln , nccordlng to this report , was suffi
cient to jusiify and warrant a declaration of
war on llio part of the United States. It was
n violation not only of the trc.\ty right guar
anteed by ropentedconvenllons.bulitsliowcd
n purpose on the part of llio government of
Canada and her majesty'H government to
harass and annoy and destroy the American
iishlng interests slmplv for the purpose of
either private gain or some public advantage.
It appealed to him that , In case of those seri
ous allocations In irritation and discontent
known lo exist between Ihu two countries
and the reporllng of a measure which author-
i/ed tt.o president to euler simply on a pro
cess of retaliation was hardly consistent
with llio gravlly ot thu situation. 11 vvas a
dangci ous course to aiithorl/o llio president
to continue the same line of conduct nnd pol
icy with the inevitable result either of tie-
gotlallng for the purpose of settling these
questions or else going lo war in defense of
rights under the treaty of 1818. Ho thought
It would bu belter nnd moro in nccordnnco
witli the dignity of the subject nnd with the
nioialily which ought to pievall among na
tions as among men to ( leekiro as the convic
tion of the senate that the lelations between
thu Iwo powers aie such as to require nego
tiations , and that there .should bu an author
ity not to Issue letters of nranino and ruurlsal ,
but to select a commission io consider the
subject , and If possible to reach some basis
of understanding between Great Britain ,
Canada and tin ) United States In regard to
Hit ! lishcry question.
Mr. Fryc said thai Mr. Incalls scorned to
forget that Canada vvas plavlug tlio same role
now vv hlch she had plaj ed Iwico before. She
played It for but ono put pose and that was to
hcruro negotiations lor reciprocal treaties ,
nnd Iheso reciprocal treaties had tinned out
to the disadvanlago of the United States and
to the advantage ot Canada. He believed It
his duly to uroiip thu outrages which bad
been committed by Canada within tlio
last six months and their he would
let the senator from Kansas ( Ingalls ) Bay
whoiher or not ho thought the United States
ought to resoit nt once to negotiations Air ,
Fryc made a very Impassioned speech , charg
ing thu Canadian authorities with outrages
and Inhumanities thai would have dlsgiaced
Fiji Islanders , and declaring that the imipose
of the proposed legislation was to notify the
government of Gieat ilrltuln that a con
tinuance , ot such a course must be nt her
peril , llo Intimated very plainly thai the
piopo.sed legislation was desired by the presi
dent nnd members of tlio cabinet.
Mr. Ingalls accepted Ihu Interpretation of
thoblll nsn eouecione. it meant war. Al
though Mr. I'dmuiids denied that U ncces-
null } ' did MI mean , lie expressed his pleiiiino

Mr. ICdmiinds asked Ingalls whether he
meant to say that any act which the people
of the United States rniulit consider n viola
tion ot thu tieaty was necessarily a casus
Mr. Ingalls I mean to say that declared
and avowed and continued violations of
treaty obllirnlUniorot International law are
a caMis belli ,
Mr. F.dmunds It does nol necessarily
follow that every breach of u treaty Is to bu
followed by war.
Mr. liuialls How- about continuous , dello-
rrate , wilful violations ol the treaty ?
.Mr. IMniiinds That Is n different thlncr.
Mr. Ingalls That Is this ease. This trouble
has got to bo settled so far us this bill Is
concerned either by diplomacy or blood.

Canada and the United States as to prevent
that pacification in the Immediate future ,
which would bo Inevitable if both people
were left to the operation of the natural laws
of trade and society. 1 co very
plainly what the purpose of Great Britain has
been In llio matter. She desires to
render It Impossible for free , friendly re
ciprocal lelations ( political and othcrw'sc ' ) ,
between Canada nnd the United States.
Therefore I was glad to hear of the Interpre
tation placed on the proposed legislation by
the sen-dor from Maine ( Fryc ; , thai so far
ns he is concerned It Is to bo a declaration to
Great llrllaln mcngnl/lng hcrngcnc } and

Mr. Hoar dcclatcd It to bo his opinion
that the proceedings of iho Canadian author *
Hies In this matter were undertaken for the
puiposeot Iiitcilerlng with n matter which
Is purclv of our own domestic concern. It
vva- < not that n.mada might catch fish without
molestation ; it was that shn might sell fish
without the Interference of the American
tariff policy , lleregaidcd this attempt of .1
foreign power to cntorcu niion us niralnstour
will a certain domestic policy as one of the
most emphatic and ilagrnnt acts of hostility
dial could bo committed short of actual war.
lie did not understand. however ,
with tin ) senator from Kansas that
the object of this measure was to brine about
either war or further diplomacy. H was
merely say hit : to thu Ilrltlsli government and
Dominion of Canada that so lung as they
attempted to Inteifero with our domestic ar
rangements In this way so long they should
not bo permitted to sell their fish or other
product ! In Amcrfcin markets at all.
Mr. Morgan followed Hoar.
Mr. Kvarts argued In support of the bill
which , ho said , was not in thu naluro of a
menace or tending at all In that direction.
It was tlio duty of cougiess , he said , to take
the subject av\ay fiom local disturbance , irri
tation and resentment. So lar from thu bill
tending to war or lending to umbrage It was
Intended to have u contrary ellect. It was
an Immediate announcement to the people
that they had only to trust their protection
not to personal resentment but
to the government of the United
Slates and when the opening of
summer should bring about a recutieiico of
the fishing season and ol llio fishing dangers
the question would bo removed from that
theater of collision and , if not concluded , It
would be under the control of both govern
ments In a deliberate conssldcratlon of what
.should lo done In order to have stability of
Intercourse and In order to give stability to
the peareand dignity ol Iwo great nations
the United States and Great lirltaln.
Mr. llido declared himself earnestly in
tavor ol Iho bill. I Is provisions worn nol
harsh , but moderate ; not rash , but well con
sidered , and he believed Ihat those provisions ,
when enacted into law and carried out by the
executive , would bo elllcaclous.
Mr. Vest nrirued in favor of the bill.
Mr. Uiddleberger opposed llio bill bccinso
it was in the naluro ol a treaty with Gieat
Britain. He wanted no treaty.
An amendment oilercd by Mr. Vest for the
appointment of a commissioner lo take testi

ican fishermen was lost yeas , 17 ; nays , 2T.

WAsmxnio.v , D. C. , Jan. 21. [ Special
Telegram to the llr.i : , ] llallroad representa
tives who have been hovering around Wash-
Inuton during the pending of thu inter-stato
commerce bill , were thrown Into a fever of
excitement yesterday , consequent upon the
discovery Hint leading democrats who have
confidence In the administration , arc quietly
but no IPS ? effectively nt work to induce the
president to appoint Senator Van Wyck us
one o the republican commissioners created
by Iho Inter-slato commerce bill , provided ho
Is or can bo made double for the position.
Their argument Is that no man prominent In
the leptibllcan party moio nearly represents
public sentiment on lallroad transposition
question" than Senator Van Wyck.
The ivport that llio president would veto
the Inter-stale commerce bill evidently was
based on some remarks ho made to R con
gressman on Friday last. The president said
lie had been reading thu bill and had found
the fouithsection to bu very ambiguous. Ho
thought thai congress , while it was making
laws , should use as great perspicuity as pos
sible In order that the meaning could bo un
derstood without calling on the courts to In-
lerpret llio language. It was often the case
and he understood It vvas so with regard lo
tlio Inter-state commerce bill that two mem
bers of the committee differed as lo iho
meaning of the languagr In which It was
framed. This , ho said , was all wrong , it
congress knew what it wanted to say there
were wouls in thoKngllsh language capable
ot expressing the Idea without
ambiguity. As It was , ho feared
thai tno difference ot opinion
as lo llio meaning of llio fourth section ot the
Inter-slalo commerce bill would lead lo long
and expensive- litigation , which would ben
bin den and annoyance to Ihu people It vvas
intended to benefit nnd relieve from expense
nnd nnnoyance. These sensible remarks of
the president show lliat ho has sounded Ihu
bill and underslands its strucluro and weak
ness , bill ho diit not show any signs of n veto.
On Iho coulrary lie spoke as It ho intended
to .sign It.
There is a rush of candidates for the posi
tions crented by the bill. The state ot Ken
tucky lias oficicd eight applicants tor thu
coiiimissloncrnbips , with several of the
back counties lo hear fiom. Congressman
Morrison and Senator Conger appear to bo
the only ones who are sure of appointment ,
and there is a theory that Ubeily will bo a
candidate , In which event Morrison's pros
pects will not bo so good. Governor Stone-
man , of California , Is nlsoeonsldcied a prob
able apiiolutec. Xow Kngland and Ihu .south
are crowding pollllcians forward , The con-
stltullon appears lo prohibit Ihu appointment
ot Conger and Morrison , for It provides that
no member of congress can bo appomtcu lo
an olllco created during his term. To get
around this technicality , however , all they
have lo do Is lo cease lo bo members ot con
gress , when Ihey will bo cliclble.

not long ago that news from Xow York was

few lines from Lima or Duenna Ayrcs. The

ers and Dr. McGlynn , however , stillconllnno
to bo the current loplcs of comment here.
The Glebe alludes to Dr. McGlynn nnd
Archbishop Corrlgan tnlsatternoon. Doubt
less It will be Interesting to Xew Yorkers to
read the viols expressed three thousand
miles away from where the Incidents have
taken place. The Glebe says : "The attitude

but little appreciation of the Issues In

loners and choristers , that these should
think of Inlluciicln ? the case by thorough
and ready process of boycotting the services
conducted by the substitute during the sus

Is a priest bound to take politico-econom

That is the way In" which Dr. Me-
Glynrr would stale the question ,

political blunder to add to tlm list ol heresies ,
yet , It Dr. McGlynn bo allowed n parsonal
tilumph over his nrchblshop , ono may
bo sure the church will bo regarded
by all communists everywhere as their ally.
Home , however , has always well compre
hended the cicat good of delay , and if Dr.
McGlynn fancies he lias succeeded in vvh.it
