Prescriptious carefully Compounded l U - l CONGRESSIONAL. SEXATE. 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 the railroads. 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 gle state. Hoar thought it would not enter into so much miuutue, but could do great good. 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 largecities. 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. norsE. 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 messengers. The speaker laid before the house a message from the president on the same subject 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 mandatory. Randall" then introduced a bill, which passed, appropriating $1,500 for the compensation nnd expenses of these messengers. 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. Adjourned. ' 31KASURE5 RELATING TO THE NORTH WEST. 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' courses. 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.
