ASTORIA, OREGON, FRIDAY, MARCH 21, 1884.
PRICE, FIVE CENTS.
Washington, March 19.
Harrison, commissioner of Indian
affairs, reported that it is inexpedient
to establish a military academy west
of the Mississippi, for the training of
youths for soldiers.
Miller, of California, of the commit
tee on foreign relations, in compliance
with a resolution of instruction of
the committee to inquire and report
what legislation, if any, is necessary
to protect the interest of the United
States against those governments
which have excluded or restrained
the importation of American meats,
reported an original bill providing
for the inspection of meats for expor
tation, and prohibiting the importa
tion of adulterated articles of food
or drink, and authorizing the presi
dent to make his proclamation in
certain cases and for other purposes;
placed on the calendar.
Vance presented the views of the
minority of the committee. The mat
ter went over until to-morrow.
The chair laid before the senate as
unfinished business, the bill to aid in
the establishment and support of
common schools. A long debate fol
lowed, and when Blair had the floor
and was meeting objections raised to
the bill, Harris inquired whether he
would give away for a motion to ad
journ. Blair replied that he would
do so on condition, that before open
ing the debate for to-morrow, the
senator would rejul his speech of yes
terday, as he thought it covered
all the points of the objection raii-eJ
to the bill. Blair's speech bavin?
occupied several hours in delivery,
this suggestion was granted with
hearty laughter, in which Blair good
naturedly joined. Few amendmcn's
in detail were made to the bill, aad
the senate adjourned.
Washington, March 19.
The house decided by a vote of 130
yeas to 121 nays to go into the com
mittee of the whole on the bonded
Curtin chairman of the commit
tee on foreign affairs, submitted as a
privileged question, the following re
port and resolution":
"The resolutions adopted by the
house of the 9th of January were in-
tended to express to the German gov- J
eminent and people our sympathy j
for the death of -an eminent n a i. who
died in this country, and who had.
served his native land as a member
of its highest legislative body, as a!
tribute of respect to his memory.
"While your committee is of the opin-'
ion that the said resolutions should
have been received and transmitted
in the same spirit of cordiality and j
good will by which it was prompted,
it refrains from expressing an opin
ion as to whether the course pursued
by the authorities of the German
empire in regard to them was not in
accord with the proprieties governing
the internal regulation of said em
pire, as a matter not within its prov-'
ince for consideration. The digni
fied position assumed by the depart
ment of state merits, and will com
mand, the confidence of the country,
and fully sustaining the high charac
ter that department ha maintained
since the organization of the federal
government. As to the resolutions
offered March 10, your committee is of
the opinion that they contain lan
guage, under the" present circum
stances, superfluous and irrelevant,
andiiot necessary or proper to vindi
cate the character and dignity of this
house. Your committee, therefore,
reports back said resolutions, with
the recommendation that they lie
upon the table, and reports the fol
lowing resolutions, with the recom
mendation that they be adopted as a
Resolced, That the resolutions re
ferring to the death of Herr Lasker
adopted by this house Jan. 9th, last,
were intended as a tribute of respect
to the memory of an eminent states
man, who had died within the United
States, and an expression of symj a
thy with the German people for
whom he had been an honorable rep
resentative. Resolved, That this house having
no official concern with the relations
between the executive and legisla
tive branches of the German govern
ment does not deem it requisite to its
dignity to criticize the manner of the
reception of the resolutions or the
circumstances which prevented their
reaching their destination, after they
had passed tnrough the proper chan
nels to Germany.
Oohiltree then delivered a eulogy
on the high abilities and noble char-'
acter of Lasker, and said the compli-'
ment to Lasker was a lebuke to the
German chancellor, because they were
the antithesis of each other. The
speaker then proceeded to picture
Bismarck as a flattering and sycho
phantio instrument of despotic roy
alty. Belford asked, ironically, whether
it would be in order to offer a reso
lution presenting the apologies of the
house to the German chancellor for
having troubled him?
Phelps said this matter was at first
of very little consequence, but had
now become of very great import
ance, and the committee had unani
mously agreed upon a report. It
would seem that there ought to be
an explanation, when on the 9th of
January, as the members were clos
ing their desks preparatory to ad
journment, the gentleman from Texas
(Ochiltree) sent to the o.erk's desk a
series of resolutions, and asked the
unanimous consent of the house for
their adoption. After waiting until
the resolutions were read, a unani
mous consent was given and the
. house adjourned. After ten days the
liouso "was startled hy the informa
tion that the German chancellor had
refused to accept them, and the next
morning the members hunted the
Record to see what they had done.
They found that they had expressed
regret at the death of Lasker and
sympathy with the German people at
their loss. This was true. They
read also that they had expressed the
belief that the free and liberal senti
ments of the deceased had advanced
the material and social interests of
Tiaonntry. This was true; but be
tween the two truths there was this
difference, one was truth which the
house could export; the other waB a
truta it could not export The house !
could say it regretted the- death of
Lasker and send such message any
where. It could believe and know
that his political sentiments were for
the German Empire, but it had no
right to send that opinion to a friend
ly povrdr which entertained a differ
ent opinion, and thought the political
sentiments of Lasker had not mate
rially advanced, but had materially
retarded the progress of the govern
ment Here was the dilemma, and
where was the refuge? There seemed
to be none. The house could resent
the fact of its friendly sentiments
having been rejected, but it could not
resent the fact that the political sent
iments had been rejected, because it
had no business to put them on the
The resolutions were adopted with
out division, though an unsuccessful
attempt was made to have the yeas
and nays ordered.
Before the passage, the resolutions
were discussed at length.
Phelps explained on behalf of the
committee that the only two trouble
some points in the matter had been
solved, first by apology and explana
tion of Bismarck in the reichstag; j
second, by the tact of the state de- j
partment, which adroitly avoided re-
ceiving back the resolutions when re
turned. By Bland, of the committee on
coinage, weights and measures, limit-"
ing the coinage of double eagles, and
to discontinue certain United States
coins; placed on the house calendar.

and the committe resumed session.
Morrison took the floor in support
of the bilL Before he finished a sen
tence, however, "White (Kentucky)
rose, saying he had moved that the
committee rise for the purpose of
bringing a privileged matter before
The chair stated that he had rec
ognized the gentleman from Illinois
(Morrison), and on White taking an
appeal he refused to notice it on the
ground that an appeal was not in or
der upon a question of mere recogni
tion by the chair.
Thereupon White rose to a point of
order, and said a member of the
whisky ring was now on the floor.
When he had previously given his
pledge he had no interest in any bill
before the house. He thought
the market would amount in the
next two years to 43,000,000 gallons.
In the years when this whisky was
nnde everything was overdDne. There
was an excessive production, not only
in in muutry but it was common
to all the larger producing interests
of the county. Producers- were not
able to compete in the sale of alcohol
in the European market with Ger
many. This country fought the Ger
man people with protective tariffs,
and bad to sell in French markets in
competiou with the subjects of ill
natured Bismarck. Suppose this sur
plus was purely the result of the spec-
uiative spirit of out people was that
a good and satisfactory reason why .
an industry of this magnitude should '
be forced to pay taxes, when the '
government had nothing to make by
the enforcement? It was Baid that
this was class legislatien: that it was
legislation in the interests of a cer
tain fowj that it was not the fact.
This legislation was made, as far as
it went, special legislation against
this industry, and put it nearly as it
mis industry, ana put, u, nearly as is
might be, on an equality with all the .
other articles that pay internal rev
enue. If this was anything else than
whisky, there would be no question
about it. He believed, further, that
whenever it could be done (a it now
could) th3 relief should be granted.
If this bill were passed it would not
cost the government one cent, and it
would not add to the burdens of a
single person of the 55,000,000 people
to the hundreth part of a farthing.
Its friends did not wish to push it
through by any railroad scheme. If
there was anythiug wrong they want
ed it to come out He yielded to
Blackburn, who expressed a hope
that consideration of the bill would
be concluded to-morrow. He moved
that the committee then rise. Motion
agreed to. House adjourned.
An Infallible Test.
Let a drop of fresh milk fall into a
glas? of pure water. If the milk
promptly disseminates itself through
the water, the cow that yielded that
milk is not with calf; but if it sinks
to the bottom of the glass as it falls
upon the water, and does not produce
but little of a milky cloud, the cow is
pregnant The specific gravity and
viscidity of the albuminous milk be
ing heavier than water, thus retains
tne drop of milk and causes it to
sink. We advise dairymen to make a
note of this, and give it a test If
reliable the information may be of
great value to them.
