Around congiess to day there were many
fonjertiircs as to what answer will bo Hindu
by Iho secretary of war to Senator Halo's
resolution , adopted last October , calling for
nn explanation of the issuance of the notorious
rious Donet circular leltcr , directing the
lemovalof women and children in the nrsu-
imlH and armories , to innko room for demo
crats ( icnej-nl Delict told the correspondent
of Iho Indianapolis Journal six weeks ago
that the circular was issued upon the direc
tion , or nttho suggestion , of Secretary Knill-
roll , but ho stated subsequently , in order to
extricate the secretary from the hole into
which ho had placed him , that ho ( Henul )
was alone icsponsiblo for thu order , and that
lie conceived it himself. The ( utter ex
planation was made , of course , for the pnr-
] K > SC of relieving the administration of the
odium which the responsibility would cast
upon it. Now that there will bo no neces
sity of shielding the administration ,
llcnct , it is said , feels like vindicating luin-
Hclf , in order that ho may not be in bad
repute with the new administration. Some
curiosity is expressed as to whether Kndi-
cott or Henel will assume Iho responsibilily.

No bolter commentary on I'residsnt Cleve
land's message could be desired than that
given by the members of the house during
the reading of the document this afternoon ,
when Iho democrats applaitdcd cm tain fea
tures and the republicans hissed other per
tions. When the refeienco to the surplus in
the treasury as not being intended to force
free trade was read the democrats immedi
ately began n vigorous applause and the re
publicans gave vent to a stage laugh thai
iliowned the hand clapping. The contrast
between the demonslralioiiso n thu two sides
was so great Hint involuntarily almost e\ery
eye turned towaid Mrs. Cloveliml and her
mother , who sat on the. Iront in the dip
lomatic gallery. They looked serious With
very few exceptions and these are among
tin ? protectionist democrats opinions as to
the meiits of the message are confined with
in party lines. Ths democrats gen
erally nro glad thai Hie pre-iidenl
has again proclaimed in favor of fieq
tiade , and , nn Cl.aiimnn Mills puts it
this evening , "aro proud to see the president
still llymg Iho flag of reform. " Mr. Mills
docs nol believe the tree trade utterances of
the president in his message a year ago had
anj thing to do with Iho change of public
opinion as to the aims of the dcmocralic
parly , or that they contributed to Mr. Clove-
land's defeat. Do hcai til v endorses all the
president has over said about tariff refoi m
nnd free trado. The two Hrcekonridpes , who
are democratic members of the house com
imtleo on ways and means , heartily ap
plauded the sentiment of the message as il
was rend , and declrred that it is the best
document over sent to congress. They , too ,
lire gratified to see Hint Mr. Cleveland's
stand on the tori IT has not been shaken by
the iccent election. They join Mr. Mills in
declaring that the representatives of the
democratic party in congressdo not intend to
niter or amend the tariff platform , but say It
will stand ns a land 111:11 : k for future com-
palgns. They are in favor of simply reaf-
llrniiiig the platform in the next
struggle for the presidency. Sena
tor Hansom , of Noith Carolina ,
expressed the view of the democrats In the
upper branch of congress when he said : "It is
the ablest of them ull , and shows thai our
louder is standing by his guns. " The repub
licans in both houses use some very vigorous
language in denouncing the message. .Sen
ator Allison tins evening said"II Is un
patriotic. " The senator has special refer
ence to the second paragraph in the message ,
which casts serious doubl upon the wisdom
of the foundation of our republic , because it
Is "founded upon thn fiucdom of the people. "
Do thinks Iho president has struck a very
cruel blow at the American form of govein-
mem , simply because its citizens did not 10-
Inin him in power.
li Senator Sherman said : "It contains notb-
Ing now , except certain forms of complaint. "
[ ( ; Senator Cullom said : "Mr. Cleveland
seems determined to go out with a bluster.
Ho Is disappointed , scolds severely and ap
pears to doubt not only the wisdom of the
present people , but the fnimers of our con
stitution. "
Kcpiesontntivo McKinley , of Ohio , said :
"It is a post mortem examination of the
democratic platform. "
( lOiieral Urosvenor , also of Ohio , said :
"Tbo message Is a motion for a now trial ,
but the court bus no jurisdiction and thu ver
dict will have to slund. "
These views give a coed idea of those expressed -
pressed by nil men in congress , who have so
far given utterance to their opinions of the
message. In some quarters there is great
indignation over the communistic and an
archistic sentiments' of the president , and
several meniL'Ois ' of congress go to far as to
nay that Jolmn Most ami his followers can llnd
texts in the president's message to lire the
hearts of their converts for yeais to come.
The soldiers are also indignant. They 10-
gnrd the language of the ptcsidcnt , where ho
refers to pensions , as "gratuities granted
upon no oilier real ground than the needy
condition of the applicant , or for reasons less
valid , " as an unnecessary Insult to the vet
erans , nut they add thai it is only in the line
that he has followed ever since ho went to
the white house , and that in the future il
will cause the soldiers to stand more solidly
together than they have ever stood.

All of the Nobiaska delegation , with the
exception of Congressmen McShano ami
Laird , were in their seats at the opening of
the session to-day , Senator .Manderson and
Kciiresonlutlvo Dm soy having arrived hero
several days ago , and Senator Paddock reaching -
ing the city on Saturday by way of Now
York , There were many inquiries on the
lloor of the senate respecting thu probabil
ities of the Manderson succession. The in
complete reports , us to thu composition of
„ western legislatures , have made it very dilH-
, ' cult to eastern men to learn the exact situa
tion. Senator Mumloi son \\iis heartily con
gratulated over thu overwhelming republican
majority , which seems 10 assure his re-elec
tion. The senator himself expressed quut
lonflilencu in the outcome to si-scud of his
friends. Ho Is said to have intimated that it
would not bu necessary for him to return to
Nebraska during thu legislative session. This
is probably thu best evidence of the complete
Batltalaction which Senator Maiiderson feels
over the situation.
A piomiuont Nobrnnka-politlelnn expressed
the opinion this evening that there would bo
lit least live senatorial candidates iu thu
Hold In thu coming contest In that state , and
that among them would bo Representative
Dorsoy. Ho named ns the eonteutniits , ox-
Congressmen \iilontiiie , Judge Crounz ,
Governor Saunders , Governor Thnyer and
.ludgo Kcese , of the tmproinu court , ami
added that the friends of Judge Uroff , of
Omaha , were urging strongly uK | > n that
, gentleman to allow the use of his name. Do
I nddcd , that in his opinion , the senatorial
, I contest next January will not bu entirely
I devoid of interest , nnd while C ] cue nil Man-
I dersnn'a success at present seemed assured ,
; ha might llnd it to his interest to taku u trip
' to Lincoln befoio the culniiuuiton of thu
Delegate Clifford , of Dakota , has prepared
an amendment to the law. providing for tlio
opening of the Sioux Indian reservation in
Nebraska and Dakota , which ho will intro
duce in thu house at once , and will urge its
Immediate adoption , with a view to securing
the opening of the reservation obefore next

rcscrvntion shall bo onenH without the con
sent of the Indians , who slmll bo given $1 nn
ncre for nil Innds taken during the first two
venrs , 75 cents nn acre for thu land taken on
the reservation during tlio next iwo years ,
and ' .0 cents an ncre for the land remaining
nnd not taken nt the end of the first four
years. The amendment further provides
that the government shall make n deposit of

nent fund , to drawfjperccnt interest , for the
benetlt of the Indians who own the reserva
tion , and it appropriates * 2ooK)0 ( ) for survey
ing the land to be opened to settlement
JudgeXJifTord has made some inquiry in
the house , and says he has no doubt that his
amendment , or something subslantiully like
it , Hill bo adopted without delay.
* TIP.
Hefore the president's message was re
ceived at the house to ilnj ono of. tlio "legis
lative agents" of a Wall street concern
passed the word mound thu lobbies that the
message would contain a reference to tin
Oiithwaito bill for the extension of the 1'acillc
railroad's bonded debt. Ho added that
ho had an intimation , but he was
not positive that the reference would bo fav
orable to the bill. "Now , " said the gentle
man , "if this proves to be true.Umon Pacific
will be good stock to buy , and 1 think it safe
to saj that it will jump nt leasl six pjiuts. If
you have any spare cash , look ou' for the
message and govern > ourself accordingly. "
In response to this tip those who were ad
vised of what to expect , eaj'crl.y scanned the
copies of the message winch weiodistubtited ,
in the hope of linding a "pointer. ' ' Thu
promised paragraph was nilsiing and the til
was worthless , nnd ns n result thcio were
several disappointed congressmen and house
employes who saw a faint opportunity to re
coup the losseu sustained bi betting upon the
wrung man. *

hour for the meeting of the second session of
the Fiftieth congress the galleries of the

blight diesses of Indies formed a brilliant
frame to the picture piosonted on the floor
below. There handshaking was indulged in
and congratulations on ic election or con-

How Senator In alls AVoulil Hnvo It
WvsinNnTov , Dec. 3. [ Special Telegram
to Tin : Uni : j In an interview with the cor
respondent of a southein paper Senator In- .
galls said yesterday : "Tlio race question nt
the south remains , as it bus always been , and
for the next geiieiatlou at leasl II will con
tinue to be , the most Important and formid
able in our politics. Tlio change from slav
ery to freedom , from subordination to legal
equalitj , has complicated instead of simpli
fied the situation. So tar from solving the
fatal problem , it has added new elements of
difficulty and danger. Unless history is n
false teacher , it is not possible for two dis
tinct races , not homogeneous that is , which
cannot assimilate by intermarriage and
minglmir of blood to exist upon terms
of practical political equality under
the same government. One or the other
must go to the wall. The time will come
when the negroes , aware of their strength
and numbers , will Insist uuon their equality
under the law , and then there will be a
ensis which may become a catastrophe.
There Is but one practical suggestion that
offers any present relief , and that is n
national legislative law , under which every
voter should bo entered upon the poll lists ,
and then have the elections under the con
trol of supervisors appointed for that nur-
pose Tins might not secure fair elections ,
bill It would afford the means ot ascci tain-
ing whether they weie lair or not ,
so that congiess could act Intelli
gently In deriding whether the contest ants
were entitled to their seats In either house
and In the electoral college. The blacks have
the same legal rights on this continent Unit
whites have. They are natives and are citi
zens They have as much right to nslt the
whites to ictiie or separate themselves as
the whites have to require them to do so.
Hut the original environment of the African
race was tropical , and It may bo that on the
southern shot cs of the gulf , or the West
India islands , or along the low lands of
Mexico , regions friendly to Arrican blood ,
Iho enfranchised millions , under Iho piotee-
lion ot the United States , subjects of its

would not have known yestetday that any-
tlilng unusual was taking place. The Champs

extraordinary were happening , and no atten

wet thy of attention , except the political ele

the smaller shopkeepers along Iho route ,
many of whom were even loud in complaint
of the absolute absurdity of the thing ; which
without any tangible reason that they could
see , compelled them to shut their shops and
lose a good day's business , all for nothing.

was half fanned of the offscourings of the

It has ngieod that American cltionship shall
be the only credential necessary to justify
the claim of equality bofoiu the law , ami
that no condition in life shall give rise to ills-
crfinmation in the tivnlmont of the people by
this government. The citizen of our i cpublfu
in its early day rigidly insisted upon

Tlio President Pnys His Ilesppcrs to
tlio Iron-Ilcclcd Creation ! ) .
Wo view with prule and satisfaction this
bright picture of our country's growth and
prosperity , while only a close scrutiny devel
ops a somber shading. Upon more careful
inspection wo llnd the wealth and luxury of
our cities mingled with povortv and wretch
edness and mucniuncrativo toil. A crowded
and constantly Increasing urban popu
lation suggests the impoverishment
of rural .sections and discontent
with agricultural pursuits 'Iho farm-
er's son , not satiMlod with his father's
simple and laborious life , Joins the eager
chase for easily auiuircd wealth.
Wo discover that the fortunes ro-
ali/cd by our iminufacturors nro
no longer solely the reward of study , indus
try and enlightened foicsight , but that they
result from the discriminating favor of the
government and are largely built upon undue
exaction from the masses of our own people.
The gulf between employers and the em
ployed Is constantly wideningand classes are
rapidly forming , ono comprising tliu very
rich ami powerful , while in Another are
found the toiling poor.
AH wo vlow the achievements of aggregated -
gated capital wo discover the existence of
trusts , combinations and monopolies , wliilo
the cill/cn Is struggling far in the rear or IB
trampled beneath an Iron heel.
Corporations , which should bo the care
fully restrained creatures of thu law and the
servants of the people , me fast becoming the
people's masleis. Still congratulating our
selves upon the wealth of our country , and
complacently contemplating every incident
of change Inseparable ) from these conditions ,
it is our Hilly as patriotic citlrons to iniuiro |
at the pic.sunl stage of our progress how the
bond of thu government made with
tlio people lias been kept and per
formed. Instead of limiting the trib
ute drawn from our citi/cim to
nccossitlett of its economical administration ,
the government pci.slsts in exacting from the
.substance of the people's millions , which ,
unapplied and useless , lie dormant in its
treasury This ll.igrant Injustice and thlu
breach of faith and obligation add to ox tor *
lion the danger attending diversion ot tlio
currency of tlio country liom the legitimate
channels ol business ,
Under the same laws by which these re
sults me produced , the government perinltH
many millions more to bu added to the cost
of living of our people aii'l to bu taken from
our consumers which unreasonably wwell the
profits of n small but powoiful minority.
The people tnust still bo taxed
for the uuppoi t of the country under thu op
eration of tariff laws. I till the
mass of our eiiucns is Inordinately
burdened beyond any usuful public purpose
and for the benefit of a fow. i'ho
government under pretext of nn exorcise of
its taxing power , enters giatuitously Into
partnership with those favorites , to their ad
vantage nnd to the injury of u vast majority
ufour , people. This is not equality before
the law. The existing situation is Injiiilous
to the health of our entire body politic. . Jt
stifles in these all patriotic love of country ,
and substitutes in its j.iaco Bullish greed and
grasping avarice. Devotion to American citi
zenship for its own sake and for what it should
accomplish us a motive to our nation's ad
vancement and the happiness of all our pco
plo is displaced by the assumption that the
government , Instead of being the embodi
ment of equality , Is but un Instrumentality
through which especial and individual ad
vantages are to bo gained.
The iirrognnco of thin assumption Ib un
concealed. It appears In thu sordid disre
