Washington, Jan. 14.-Allison, from
the committee on appropriations, pur
suant to the recommendation of the
president, reported a bill, which
passed, providing for the compensa
tion and expenses of special electoral
messengers to be sent to Iowa and
Oregon, for the returns of the late
presidential election in tuose states.
Edmunds, calling Frye to the chair,
took the lloor and called up the bill
yesterday offered by him, providing
that the president may appoint to tne
retired list one person wiio lias occu
pied the position of general com
manding any armies or tne united
Stales or general-in-chief of the
United Stales army. He moved to
amend it by adding "with the rank
and full pay of such general or gen
eral-in-chief, as the case may be."
The amendment was agreed to.
Cockrell desired to record his vote
against the bill, not knowing whether
the yeas and nays would bo called on
it The retired list was no place for
a private citizen. It had been created
for officers who, being still in the ser
vice, had been rendered unlit for duty.
There was neither justice or propriety
in placing a private citizen on that
list General Grant was now enjoy
ing the receipt of S15.003 a year,
which was enough for the support of
any American citizen.
Edmunds' bill to place General
Grant on the retired list, with the full
rank and pay of general, passed the
senate after a short debate yeas dU,
nays 9. Edmunds spoke strongly and
feelingly in favor of the bill. Among
the Democrats Maxey, Voorhces,
George, Gibson and Jonas spoke in
its favor. Tho senators who voted
"nay'' -were Ueck, Cockrell, Coke,
Harris, Pendleton, Saulsbury, Slater,
"Vance and Walker.
The senate, upon motion of Hale,
took up the naval appropriation bill.
The senate appropriation committee's
amendments were concurred in, and
the bill passed.
The chair laid before the senate the
inter-state commerce bill.
Slater offered an amendment, pro
hibiting tho charging of higher rates
of compensation for transporting the
same kind and amount of property a
shorter than a longer distmce. Slater
described the operation of the prin
ciple of discrimination against "short
hauls," and the sufferings of western
communities in consequence.
Cullom said' the amendment was
important, but in his opinion its
adoption would result iu disaster to
Van Wyck favored Slater's amend
ment and cited illustrations of dis
criminations practiced by railroads
and combinations made by companies
to resist all attempts of the public to
remedy the eviL
Cullom said the adoption of Slater's
amendment would seriously injure
not only the producers of the west
but consumers of the east. It would
injure hundreds of thousands of peo
ple. Van Wyck had often heard this
statement made, but had then no
proof of it The people of Nebraska
as well as 'Iowa, Illinois and other
states, were suffering from extortions
from railroads. He would like to
know how a community could be ben
efited by a railroad charging as they
did in an instance cited by him, SS00
for a carload delivered GOO miles east
of San Francisco, and charging only
Sd00 for a carload delivered in San
Francisco, GOO miles beyond.
Hoar favored a commission, and
said the Massachusetts railroad com
mission had accomplished results
hardly less than marvelous.
Coke inquired whether a commis
sion could act for the -whole United
States as advantageously as for a sin
Hoar thought it would not enter
into so much miuutue, but could do
Slater explained that his amend
ment would have the effect to pro
hibit a company from charging from
Chicago to any point west of New
York a greater sum than it charged
from Chicago to New York. If it
charged $100 a car to New Yrork, it
should not charge more than S100 a
car to any point between Chicago
and New York. He defended his
amendment, as tending to build up
places of moderate size, instead of
concentrating population so densely
in a few large cities. Ho also cited
cases of extortion growing out of dis
criminations by railroads in favor of
Allison thought Slater's amend
ment was a radical departure from
the principlo of a commission, em
bodied in the bill. It would be fix
ing a cast-iron rule. Sharp competi
tion by railroad and "water routes
rendered the establishment of such
rule on a matter so material, unde
sirable. The principle of tho amend
ment would be impossible of applica
tion without serious effect At the
risk of some criticism, Allison, for
one, preferred to favor the appoint
ment of a commission of eminent
men, as provided by the bill, thor
oughly to examine the subject, and
give their combined and mature judg
ment; and not take the hasty judg
ment of one man, who has not ex
amined the subject He believed in
making haste slowly In this matter.
Commissions had been successful
in several states; lot a commission be
tried for the United States.
Harrison called the attention of
tho senate to tho death of
Hon. Schuyler Colfax, "who had been
presiding officer of tho senate and
vice president of the United States.
After a few brief but feeling words of
eulogy of deceased by Harrison and
Sherman, Harrison offered a resolu
tion reciting that the senate had
heard with great sorrow of Colf.ix's
death, and out of respect to his mem
ory the senate do now adjourn. The
senate accordingly adjourned.
Washington, Jan. 11. Uaudall
sent to the clerk's desk and had read
a letter received from the secretary of
state, informing the house that the
certificates of the electoral votes of
Iowa and Oregon not having been
received by tho president pro torn of
the senate it became incumbent on
him to send a special messenger to
each of those slate3, as required by
law. The secretary requests that an
appropriation be made to pay the ex
penses and compensation of these
The speaker laid before the house
a message from the president on the
Note. The missing certificates aro
the duplicates required to bo sent by
mail. Their non-receipt will not
affect the counting of the doctoral
vote, as certificates have already been
received from Iowa and Oregon by
messenger; but the law under which
the secretary of state has acted is
Randall" then introduced a bill,
which passed, appropriating $1,500
for the compensation nnd expenses of
Mills introduced a bill to create
a revenue commission. Eeferred.
( lhis is similar to the bill introduced
in the senate by Heck, the 5th instl j
Wait called up the Chinese in-;
demnity fund bill, and after a short;
explanation the bill passed. It an- J
thorizes the president rto cause thej
residue of the Chinese indemnity
fund to be converted into com and
cause the sum of fci&dViyu to be re
turned to tho Chinese- govern -nent, !
and the balance covered into the!
treasury, provided that before pay
ment lo China the secretary of state
shall pay from the fund to the execu
tors of U. E. Heil 5130,000 on ac-
uuuuiul iuu uuiat7ici;. !
On motion of Randall tho senate
amendments to the bill for the pay-.
ment of messengers sent for the cer-
tificates of the electoral vote.? of Ore-!
con and Iowa, were concurred in.
31KASURE5 RELATING TO THE NORTH
Washixcjton-, Jan. 14. It had been
agreed to report favorably ltepresen
tativo George's bill lo give Portland,
(Jr., and Port Townsend, W. T the
benefit of immediate transportation
of dutiable goods in bond. Also.
with amendments, George's bill lo
grant the Astoria and Winucmucca'
Railroad Company tho right to con-'
strnct bridges over navigable water'
The house committee on public
lands to-day considered the senate
amendments to the bill forfeiting the
unearned land grant of the Oregon
Central railway. A proposition to
concur iu the amendments was lost,
by a tie vote, five members voting
each "way. The subject then weul
over to tho next meeting of the com
mittee, on Friday.
Senator Slater introduced a bill
in the senate to-day. providing for an
additional land district in Washing
ton territor', to have an office at
Ontario, Whitman county, and for
the necessary officials, a register and
a receiver, to run the same.
