Mr McKlulcv pave a brief statement of
the senate amendments.
Mr flower of Now Yoilc said the esti
mated revenue for the year was ? OUOO,000.
Thlsconj-ioss hnd appropilated ? < ) ! ,000,000.
Whnt xras the need of this tariff bllll Why
not leave the piesent law as It .is , uitn
amendments for reciprocity which meant re
ciprocity , not ono of these liiuinlinrjucks
string which the president could pull at any
time.Mr. . McHno of Aikansas opposed the bill ,
both in its original form and as amended , on
the general ( 'round th.it it distumlnated
npainst the fanning Industry.
Mr. 1'iiy.son ot Illinois thought that In
various respects the bill as It p.Hsed the sen
ate was preferable to the measure as It-
passed thu house. Ho spoke in favor of the
senate amendment plnchiK binding twine on
the free list , lie wus a bello\er in icmibli-
cnn principles , bat did not believe in a hasty
theory of piotcction which put on the duti
able list an article , the raw matciiul of
which was absolutely free of duty nnd the
rtiunufacttiio of which was in the hands of a
combination which could ho indicted under
nn net passed by the piesent congress. After
protesting against the placing of works of
art upon the free list ho touched upon the
sugar question nud hoped the house would
bland by Its schedule.
Mr. V.utjc of Pennsylvania wished to say
to the fanner imd laborer thnt this tariff bill
was a cheat. The majoilty believed In every
trust save ono trust in a righteous and Just
God.Mr. . McKlnloy stild tbo committee on rules
had heard that in reporting the resolution it
hud erred in giving too much tltno for debate.
IIo invited the attention of the house to the
fact that not fifteen minutes of the two hours
had been devoted to discussion of tbo senate
amendments on the tarilf nt nil. The trouble
with the members on the other siuo was that
they did not discuss the miMsurc , but called
names , and while they wore doing this the
majority hnd gene on und dona moro public

The senate amendments were non-concur
red In yeas , 1'JU ; nays- ! .
Mr. Euloo then called up Ills resolution In
rcRard to Kennedy's speech.
Mr. Qrosvcnor of Ohio , raised the point of
order that the resolution was not in order.
The tlrao to have called Kennedy to order
was when ho delivered the speech ,
Mr. J'nloo contended that Kennedy bad no
moro right to make a personal attack upon a
member of the senate than ho ( Hnloo ) bad to
Btnto that the snoikcr was corrupt or the
president a cilminal. It was due to thohouso
that no utteiances refleUiug upon the senate
should bo admitted Into the iccoul.
Mr. Dnyno of Pennsjlvnnia concurred In
the remaiksof Mr. Enloo and trusted In the
interest of what was right , of what was duo
to the house in honor of itself that
no technicality should bo allowed to
come In the way of condemning
the utterances of the gentleman from Ohio.
Mr. Grosvcnor said ho made the point of
order because ho bellcwi that whntcier ac
tion the house took should bo in the regular
way.Mr. . naync offered nn amendment toEnloo's
resolution , directing the public printer to ex
clude Kennedy's speech from the record.
Mr. Adams ot Illinois spoke lu favor of Mr.
Enloo's resolution , and pending action the
lioubc , on motion of Mr.McKluloy , adjourned.

extension of the sjstort , while the opposition
was in favor of developments of a conserva
tive nature. Wo hnvo now in operation in
the capo 1COO miles if ! railroad and are at
\\ork constructing HOJ miles of extension
northward from Klmbcily in the di-
icction of the Scombri river , to which
wo hope the road will eventually extend. A
poition of the load Is , of couisc , to pass
through a country in which wo liavo no
Jurisdiction , hut in which ccitnin Individuals
having a rojal charter bavo obtained \nlua-
bio concessions fiom the native kings. The
absorption of the territory will eventually
follow. The- country that wo contemplate
open Ing possesses probably the richest de
posits of gold in the world. The company
that has obtained the concessions Is the

Cnis ONSi'itnos1'a. , Sept 15. It lias been
arranged for the river nnd harbor appropria
tion bill to bo forwarded to the president im
mediately on being signed by the speaker. It
Is not likely that the public will bo kept In
Ignorance for many more days In regard to
that measure. Speculation is about evenly

as thobo who nro confident of approval.
The president said this morning that
if the weather continues fuvorublo und
public business docs not prevent ho will
icmaln atCresson until the end of ncxtwcck.
There is every reason to believe that the pres
ident is sciiously considering the advisability
of calling an extra session of congress. It is
known that several prominent republicans
have advised such n course with a view to
earlier consideration of the federal election
bill. Persons who have talked with the
president say ho will certainly re
convene congicss if certain pending
measures in which ho takes great
Intcicst nro not disposed of at this
session. These include the anti-lottery bill ,
the stiprcmo couit bill and the land bills now
in the scnato nnd the postal shipping bill now
awaiting action In the house. The president
Is known to bo specially Interested In the
passagp of the election bill , nnd would proba
bly feel Justified In culling an extra session
for the consideration of it and such others of
the important measures now pending as may
not bo disposed of at this session.

VIICXCII M'OIHTIOV CM1M- * .
The house committee on appropriations to
day , wltb only two dissenting'\otes , decided
to recommend to the house non comiirrenco
in the senate nircndtiiciit to the general do-
llelency bill nuking an npioprlntlon for
tlio payment of the Trench spoliation
claims. Thcso ( .latins have bicn

of more than fifty favorable reports In both
houses of congress , luve passed ono house In
ono shape or another n number of times , und
oncoiit Iwst get as far us the whlto house ,
whcro they met the presidential veto.
Thcso chums aio not only founded
on justice , but in their present
shape represent the Judirment of tlio
couit of claims , utul iu refusing- appio-
prlnto money to pay them conpicss puts it
self In the attitude of icpuilhtion of the
Judgment of n court of its own cstn'jllstilng. '
Ifcprcscntatho Cannon , chairman of the
committee ou appropriations , s.ild today that
ho u as not prepared to soy that the claims
ought not to bo pdd , and that
his objection to attaching them to the
general deficiency bill was that to do so
would seta pmedcnt which ho feaiod would

a bill by themselves , and another objection

Unexixjcteilly rapid pro rrccs was made
with the tai ill bill today aud tlio probabili
ties are now , or at lo.ist it is the expectation
of both MCSMS. Mcldnloy ami Aldiich , that
the bill will bo ready for reporting to the
senate fiom the conference committee before
tbo end of tbo week , The reason for the Iwsto
that was show n by the committee on ways
and means aud the committee oniuleswas
duo to n deshoto utilize the presence of a
quorrun In disposing of the tiuiff bill and the
rotaalnWs election cases ns speedily ns possi
ble. HWus the expectation of tlioso w bo de
vised and enclnccrcd the action of the two
committees that the Langston-Veiiiiblo elec
tion case would bo disposed of this afternoon
after the two bout's debate on the tariff bill
hart been concluded , but the injection of Mr.
Euloo's resolution , expressing the regret of
tlio bouso nt the outbicalc of Hop-
rcscntutivo Kennedy against Senator
Quay September y , prevented the election
cnso I rom coming up.
There are some differences among the
majoiityof the members of the committee on
ways and means thnt prevented Speaker
Heed item announcing the honso confcrcs
this afternoon. They relate to sugar.
In the culinary couiso of puiia-
mentary events Messrs. McKlnloy , Burrows ,
B i.vno und Dlngley would bo named ns mem
bers of the conference committee on the part
of the house , being the senior uicinbuis of
commlttco , but there is a dcslro on the part
of some that ex-Governor Gear of Iowa shall
bo given a place. IIo is particu-
laily interested in the sugar scedules
und 1ms taken an active part in
all that has been done respecting it. The
republican confcrcs on the pait of the senate
nro desirous that Governor Gear shall have n
place for the reason thnt it is understood ho
is now in favor of fixing tbo dUiding lines
between frco and dutiable sugars at
No. 13 standard Instead ot No. 10 ,
which the house adopted. The
scnato changed it to No. 13 aud Imposed a
duty on the grades between Nos. U and 10 In
order , as they say , to preseivo the sugar relining -
lining Industry from total extinction and
also to make It possible for the producers of
beet sugar to Hud n sale for their stuff.
All beet sugars will grade between Nos ,
U nnd 10 , it Is said , and if
these grades were admitted free of duty it is
feared that the pioduction and refining of
sugar from beets , which itas Intended to
encourage by pajlng u bounty , would receive
a death blow.
Senator I'addock of Nebraska , uhoso state
is highly Interested in the beet sugar sched
ule , has notified the scnato con feices that the
dividing line between fico and dutiable sugars
Is at No. Hi. There are bonio six republican
scnatois who will vote against agreeing to
the conference ncport.

Thcro were indications when the house ad
journed this afternoon that an cvciting time
would follow the fuither discussion of Mr ,
Knloo's resolution expressing regret at Hcp-
resebtativo Kennedy's ' attack on Senator
Quay , delivered in the 3d inst. and printed in
the CongresslonalKccoidycsterclay. Mr ttnloo
found supporters in HcprcscntKthcs Baynoof
Pennsylvania and Adams of Illinois. Tlio
former , in a very earnest speech , supported
the resolution because of the attack on Sen
ator Quay pnrtlculaily , while Mr. Adams
took a puiely pail lumen tury view of the
Also. Aside from any allusion to Senator
Qunyorsenatoiial courtesy , ho said thcio
was enough In the speech to make it thoi-
oughly unparliamentary and therefore deserving -
serving of ccnsuro.
Kcprescntatlvo Kennedy followed the gen
tleman very closely nnd it Is understood will
have something to say in his own defense be
fore the case isdisposedofshonldthospcahcr
rule that Mr. Enloo's resolution is a priu-
Hcprescntativo Boutello of Maine , In pri
vate , expressed the view of a Inigo number
of republicans upon the matter , saying1 "Tho
senate is not a defenseless body which has to
bo protected on the lloor of the house. It Is
nn octopus. " IIo said thcro was one thing to
bo consldcicd before pissing upon the resolu
tion , aim that was to dotcimliio whether or
not scimtoilul usurpation should reecho
commendation at the bunds of the houso.
In order to avoid w lint looked very much
llko an impending difficulty at that time the
speaker recognized Mr. McKlnloy to move an
adjournment in order that the members of
