AVASIIISOTOS , July 21. The senate ) select
committed on relations with Canada was au
thorized to fontinuo its Investigations during
thu coming recess and next session.
'f ho senate bill authorizing the coMtnutlon
of n pontoon bridge across the Mississippi
river utQuincy , 111. , was passed.
Mr. Duwcs moved to proceed to the consid
eration of thu Indian appropriation bill. Mr.
Grav niinio u motion , which was adoptedthat ,
IE the scnnto proceed to the consideration of the
' house bill providing for the transfer of the
marine service from tlio treasury to the
navy department , The bill having been
read the da'e for the appointment
of revenue marine ofllcers to be ofllcers of the
navy was Ilxed for January 1 , IS'Jl.
At a o'clock the bill was laid nside with
out action und the senate proceeded to the
consideration of the tariff hill nnd was ad
dressed by Mr.Voorhces In opposition to It.
Mr. VoorheeH criticised the tariff bill in de
tail , lie clmracturized it ns a financial mon
ster. The reduction In sugar and molasses
\viis no reduction In the light of the proposed
bounty to planters. The In t'reuso In woolen
goods amounted to * iri,0 XUK ) , ( ) a year. This
was simply a production run made. Mr.
A'oorhees refened to the recent Stanley wed
ding la London and the wedding presents of
fabulous prleo. Among these was thu one o (
C'arncglo a gift richer anil rarer , and far
more costly than any Unit could bo afforded
by the queen of England or the king of IIel-
glum , The gift was an uncut diamond , of
sueh slue , quality and purity thut neither the
richest of the crown Jewels of England nor
thu moonstone of India could surpass It
In value. How came this American kins
of stvel and iron to have such u diamond !
The farmer ! ) of the United States hud paid for
that diamond ten thousand times over in the
last twenty years by paying un average uuty
of over ! } 8 pur cent on "every article of iron
and steel used and by paying the huTonscd
rates In freight made ifccessary liv the high
duty on steel nnd iron nills and rolling stock.
If the pending bill became a law the farmers
would liuvo tip pay on iron mid steel an increase -
crease of duty Irom IH.-M to fit.75 per cent.
Mr. Vooihees passed on to the discussion of
the proposed increase of 120 per cent on tin
pinto hi order to protect an infant industry
yet unborn and give rinplorincnt to ! iOUU !
worliliigincn now idle. 11 would bo far
cheaper for the country to pay 21COO
Idle men nvcmgu wages than to tax every
nqunro of tin roof , every tin pail , ten pot and
milk can simply to build India dozen million
aires nnd enable them to give couching par
ties to protection leaders nnd to found 11-
lirurlos from tlio savings of a 15 per cent re
duction of the wnges of workinginen. Tin
jilato hiul tlio first right to ho on the free Hit
nnd ho would at tlio proper time move to putlt
thore. 'Jhero was no manufacturer of it In
the countrv and tbero was nothing to pro
tect , even If protection were right. All In
ternal revenue taxes oil manufacturers' ,
broilers * and dealers * bank checks nnd In
comes hint been swept away whllo the duties
on trace chains , tin buckets , flannel shirts
nnd the like liad had a manifold growth.
Atthodoso of his speech , Mr. Cockrell
offered resolutions ( which were agreed to )
expressing the senate's regret at the nn-
iiouneeinent of the death of Representative

ways happens , and ithapieiied | today in the
meeting of the committeoof rallro.id oflleinls
appointed to adopt a plan of settlement by
means of which cast-bound rites from the
Missouri river can bo raised. The only
method of settlement , considered involved
a division of trafilc , and In today's meet
ing tlio Is'orthwesterii absolutely refused
to become n party to any such proposal , claim-
liiK it woull be Illegal ,
To thoroutfhlv understand the situation It
must Us rcmemuered that the Alton reduced
cattle nnd packing lionsonrodiict rates nearly
75 percent from ICaniiis C'lty In order to meet
the alleged manipulations of rates.
Omaha rates liave In the main remained
linn nnd thu strugt'lo has been to restore
rates from Raima City.
The Alton lii-hts on unagreed division of
the triitllc before It consents tonvunoo rates.
The St. Paul Insists , as do the Hock Island
nnd Atehisoii. ot a division ot the triillle nt
Omnlia as well us Knnsiu city. To this the
Northwestern today entered a Hat refusid ,
claiming that tlio trouble should bo settled by
( lie Kansas City roads , It had no line
, to that point and saw no reason
'why It should practically nullify Its traffic
contraot vlth the Union I'acltlc.
Itwas urped that a largo slraro of the trafilc
from west of the river could go either via
Otnulni or Kansas City , ami consequently
what applied at ono point must nlso at the
othnr , but the Northwestern would not yield.
The committee meets nsain tomorrow , but
Its members are not as hopeful of a
settlement as they were.
The only chiinco now for r.n turrcemctit Is
tor the Atcliison , lock ! Island and HI. Paul
to yield their demand fora division of trafilc

Hut today ho is reported as slightly better

lion. John M. Thurston Is hero again
to look after some matters connected with lib

It hm been decided shall be called up in the

puss , Mr. Thiirston tiild to Tin ;
llii ! comsspoiidc'iit today ; "I do not
see how the republicans can refuse to veto
Tor that bill when It has been the promise of
the icpublicaii party for several years past
they would secure tli enfranchisement of
every citUoti In the south , regardless of his
color , as soon as they pot who opportunity. A
free ballot anil n 1'iur count uai been the

Is designed for the purpose cf making good
this promise. AtthoBanie time , " continued
Mr. Thuraton , "I nm i now s.mgiiluo of
the praclici'1 ' operation of the law.
It is Intended to protect the colored man on
election day , but would npt protect him the
other ! iH ( days of the yeir. If ho is to boa
free iimn ho' must bo protected , not only nt
tlio noils , but In his ciiuln. I believe the only
method In which freedom of suffrage can bo
secured Is by enforclngtho amendment to the
constitution' which gives power to reduce
the representation in' these sections
where the right of suffrage Is de
nied to any class of Aiucrkua citizens.
The democratic party of the south counts the
negro in the census and on that basis claims
representation , if it vero also necessary thut
his vote should bo cast una counted In order
to scuro full representation in congress it
could lie cast as freely as in tno noith.
Wherever the ballot oftho negro Is profitable
to the southern people It not only will be re
ceived , but will be solicited , The citizenship
of the colored men has boon settled by Amer
ican valor. N'o appeal can over bo taken
