WASHINGTON. D. C. . April 11. !
The house of representatives remained
under n. call , with the aergcnnt-n arms nnd
his deputies searching for nbscnt members ,
from C o'clock ycstcrdny nftcnioon through
nil of last night and to-day. About one-third
of the members wcro out of the house during
the early part of this morning and most of
the day , There was n dreary lot of men In
the floor of tho'house at sunrise. The llcor
was covered with scraps of paper and dirt ,
the desks of members were strewn with let
ters nnd documents , nnd everybody wns worn
out. Determlnntion wns upon every face ,
however , nnd each Indlvldunl member do-
clnrcd that ho was ready to continue the
fight until the end of his term rather than
succumb to defeat. So determined were the
members thnt thcro wns little jesting nnd
but few visits were paid from ono side of the
house to the other. The doors wcro locked ,
nnd communication with the outside closed.
Members wcro permitted to go down on the
floor below for lunch by exit through the rear
Jobby doors , but the door keepers refused to
take cards in to members. Lounges nnd
easy chairs were at n premium nil dny.
Members who wcro not lucky enough to get
n place to recline- sat in their scats , often
with their feet upon their desks , nnd snored
nnd grunted nt tntcrvnls. There wcro few
visitors in the galleries , and the lobbyists
nnd lawyers were without the corridors.
The restaurant was well patronized , but
thcro was drunkenness. The story tellers
wcro worn out , and the Jesters and funsters
had nothing to say. Hours elapsed when the
speaker was scarcely addressed n moment.
Spccchos wcro suspended , nnd the ridiculous
motions which hnvo been made from tlmo to
tlmo censed. Every member nnd nil of the
employes seemed worn out. Thrco relays of
rending clerks were made hoarso. This
afternoon Representative Tnulbco of Ken
tucky relieved the reading clerks , and cnllcd
the roll n few times while n page kept tally ,
thcro being no extra reading or journal clerk
to do It. The speaker's clerk was worn
out nlso , nnd had gene homo to
Bleep. Speaker Carlisle , when in the
chair , gnpcd nnd ynwned , nnd looked
the very personification of weariness. Prlv-
ilcdgcd reports nnd nil kinds of business was
suspended. There were no committee meet
ings. It was n demoralized condition of af
fairs that had prevailed for hours , when at 3
o'clock Mr. Ontcs , who lends the filibusters ,
pmblcd on the lloor off of the lounges nnd
moVcd to adjourn. There had not been n mo
tion mndo for n long time and it caused n
great deal of agitation. The friends of the
direct tax bill sprang to their feet ns ono
man , and I'rorn drowsiness wcro nlcrt nnd
cried , "Ayes niut noes , " "Ayes nnd noes. "
About 0 o'clock , everybody being completely
fntlgucd , the liouso , by unanimous consent ,
took n recess till 11:15 : to-morrow morning
that the democrats might caucus to-night.
"THIS n. & M. LAND OIIANTS IN NEIIUASKA "
Senator Pnddock , who Is a member of the
committee on public lands , has been In re
ceipt of n number of letters from Nebraska
from settlers on the land selected by the B.
& M. north of the Plutto river. These cor
espondents express great npprchension over
ho decision of Sccretnry Vilas that thnt por-
, } on of the B. & M1 lands wcro not selected
n accordance with the laws , and should they
jo forfeit jd to the government would cause
them to lese their farms. In conversation
Senator Paddock said : "In my Judgment
there need not bo the slightest apprehension
on the part of any purchaser
of the lands mentioned. Whatever
may bo the outcome ns to the
decision of Mr. Vilas , which I do not think is
wnrrnntcdby the state of the Jaw iu respect
to this grant , nnd which I nm quite confident
will not stand ns ngninst the decision ot the
supreme court , atlirmhig the decision of the
courts below nnd settling the title to these
lands on the B. ft M. company , but if the
Innds should hercnfter bo forfeited to the
government , innocent purchasers of thcso
Jnnds from the B. & M. company have equi
ties which would certainly bo carefully con
sidered by congress. Congress will never
permit innocent purchasers of lands under
such circumstances to lese their holdings
because subsequent decisions of the
departments reverse prior rulings as
to the right of the first
individuals or corporations through whom
innocent parties hnvo purchased. In the bill
introduced by Senator Plumb in the senate
on tlio 13th of January and reported on the
23d by our committee , and which is now on
the calendar of the house , it was expressly
provided thnt purchasers or assignees of
lands forfeited under this act should bo pro
tected in their titles. This is the sentiment of
both houses of congress , and in my opinion
thcro need bo no fear on the part of our people
ple who have acquired farms from the land
prnnt roaa that they will disturbed in their
holdings. The matter will bo carefully
looked into in the scmito , nnd when
the bill comes up if It does not amply provide
for nil contingencies which may arise looking
to the protection of purchasers of lands of
Inml grant roads it will bo so amended.
"Senator Mandcrson introduced n bill to
day which Is nn amendment to the Byrnes
bill Introduced in the house , which mnkes
porno vnlunbio provisions looking towards the
protection of purchasers in Just such cases.
Jt provides that the United Slides shall hnvo
recourse to the railroad companies and con
firms the title in the purchasers from the
companies. Our committee will ut once take
up Senator Mnndersoii's bill nnd report such
portions of it ns may bo necessary in amend

In the ncnnto ycstcrdny Mr. Pnddock cnllcd
Senator Platte to account for nn eiror in his
speech upon the admission of Dakota , in
which ho Inadvertently placed the population
of Nebruskn nt 352,000. Senntor Paddock
stated that this wns undoubtedly n clerical
error on the part of Mr. Platt in making his
Statistics ; that the population by the census
of IbSO was 452,542 ; that by the state census
pf 18t > 5 the population wns 740,045 , and that
the best estimate of the present population
is 1,100,000. Mr. Platt accepted the cxplanu.

nnd had had it corrected iu the permanent
Mr. Dorsoy presented a petition In the
house to-da.v , signed by between two and
three thousand farmers in Wayne , Dakotn ,
Cedar , Dixon and Burt counties , which reads
as follows )
"We , your petitioners , respectfully rep
resent that the growth of tiaxsccd und the
manufacture of linseed oil under the influ
ence of the present tariff hnvo become im
portant industries. The production of flaxseed -
seed has increased from 700,000 to over
J2.000.000 bushels. The present duty on seed
and oil barely protects these industries , and
any reduction would paralyze the industry
and cause the oil mills In the west to ho idle.

WASHINGTON , April 11. [ Special to the
BEE. ] There Is a good deal of uncertainty
among members of the liouso who have pub
lic building bills in various stages of enact
ment. It has been noticed lately that the
house public buildings committee 1ms shown
a disposition to make a favorable report upon
almost every bill of this character which has
been presented. In vlow of the policy adopted
by this committee early in the session , which
was to retard thcso bills as much as possible ,
the apparent willingness to get them out of
the way is not thoroughly understood. Tha
truth is that tha committee has learned that
the president proposes to begin vetoing
these public building bills at an early
day , nnd that ho will return them
to congress without his approval
about ns fast as they como to him. Consequently
quently the committee seems willing that
members should take their chances , as it be
gins to look as though the executive mid not
the legislative branch of the government will
assume entire control of the expenditure of
government funds by the supervising archi
tect of the treasury. The first emphatic hint
of this kind came on Tuesday last , when Mr.
Vest , of Missouri , undertook to call back
from the house the bill providing for the
purchase of n site in the city of HulTalo. Ho
did this after a long nnd earnest talk with
the president upon his policy , nnd ho doubtless -
less did It with the advice and consent of the
president. But ho was too late. The bill
had gene to the president nnd was awaiting
his action at the time. As soon as It became
known in Buffalo that the prcssdcnt did not
entirely approve of this measure ho began to
hear from his townsmen , \yhoseemed to have
cut of their
the chief magistrate was compelled to sign
the bill for 'fcolf-protcctlon , but thcro will bo
no such compulsion In many of the other
measures , and they will doubtless bo vetoed
by wholesale. The prospect is not a very
Mattering one to men who have worked so
industriously for their constituents , and the
only redress open to them Is to pass some
such act as that which Senator Paddock in
troduced early in the session , which provides
a general system for the erection of public
buildings. _ _ _ _ _

WASHINGTON , April 11. Senator Mandcr
son , from the committee on public lands , to
day reported favorably a bill providing that
In all cases whcro a railroad company having
u grant of public lands has sold lands with
drawn by the executive department of the
government , claiming the same to bo within
the limits of its grant , to citizens of the
United States , and iu all cases whcro indem
nity lands in lieu of those granted have been
patented to any railroad company nnd the
company lias sold the lands to botm fide pur
chasers for value , and it shall bo held by the
executive department of the government
subsequent to sale , that the lands so sold are
not within the limits of the grant or wcro er
roneously patented to the company ns Indem
nity lands , the title of individuals under such
purchase from the company shall bo valid ,
but the government may enter suit against
the railroad company and recover the money
value of the land. It is , provided , however ,
that nothing contained In the act shall beheld
hold to dispossess or determine the rights of
parlies who may hold adversely to each other
under purchase from the railroad company.

The Caucus on tlio Tax Bill.
WASAINQTON , April 11 Proceedings at the
democratic caucus to-ulght ran smoothly and
no bad feeling was developed. After many
motions had been offered a proposition was
made by Mr. O'FcrralIof Vlrglnlaprovlding
that the direct tax bill bo postponed until
December 15 , with the condition that when
it is then taken up a reasonable tiino will bo
allowed for debate end a vote taken on
it. Speaker Carlisle is said to have
strongly advocated the acceptance of thb
compromise. Mr. Holman declared that the
present proceedings were the most extraor
dinary ever witnessed in a legislative body ;
exhibiting the spectacle of a great majority
retreating before n small minority , .Mr.
Oatcs said if ho followed his own views he
would aonscnt to no measure that did not in
volve the absolute defeat of the bill. Yet ho
was a democrat and if the caucus decided
against him he would abide by Its decision
and support it. Much debate followed and
the caucus finally adopted a resolution ,
that on re-assembling to-morrow the
house shall adjourn with the un
derstanding that the committee on rules
will report a special order setting opart
Thursday , December 0 , JSSS. for tha con-

THE DANGKU TOINT PASSED.
A Night oT Refreshing Host' Saves
NEW Yonic , April 11 < What was thought
to bo the turning point In ex-Senator Conk-
ling's condition came this morning. At 0:20 :
o'clock , while suffering from ono of his peri
odical nttncks of delirium , Mr. Conkllng
paced up nnd down the sick chnmbcr. After
ten minutes ho bccnmo exhausted nnd once
more sank on the bed , It was not long until
ho was fast asleep. His physicians said that
much depended on the condition of
their case when ho awakened
nnd wcro on a tip-too of expectancy. Dr.
Barker called nt the pnticnt's residence nt
ten minutes past 0 o'clock , nnd found his
patient yet resting pcncefully. The doctor
felt his pnticnt's pulse nnd found It moro
rcgulnr thnn it hns been for severnl days.
Conkllng nwoko and cordlnlly shook hnmlB
with his physician , who at once nskcd him if
ho would not take some soothing
medicine. The sufferer replied in
the affirmative , nnd ns promptly
took the medicine offered him. Subsequently
Dr. Barker , in the form of nn official docu
ment , nnnouncc.il to the members of the press
thntMr , Conkllng wns beginning to recover.
"A marked chnngo for the better , " ho ad

Conkllng Is much bettor this morning. In
fact ho is much better this morning than ho
hits been for at least ten days , und enjoyed
moro refreshing sleep during the night thnn

Edward Stokes visited Colliding nt 10
o'clock. When Stokes came out he snld : "I
never wns moro surprised in my Hfo to see
the Improved condition of Colliding. Yes
terday 1 believed ho would not recover , nnd
sent talc-grams to that effect. To-day ho was
sitting up in bed nnd recognized mo. "
Dr. Barker snid shortly nftcr 3 p. m. thnt
the patient had lost considerable ground
since morning. There wni still hope for him
but if mcncngitls set In death would only bo
n matter of twenty-four hours. Dr. Barker
said further thcro was a tendency toward

fattened by her long vigil. She thinks her
husband considerably weaker than yester
day but quieter nnd moro rn-
tionnl in his wnklng moments. At
5 o'clock Dr. Barker left. Ho said Mr.
Conkling was then sleeping quietly slnco 4
p. m. Dr. Barker denied that lv.o patient was
in a state of stupor. Ho said his pulse was

Dr. Hartley issued rtho following bulletin
