C., April 29.— The Senate to day passed the land forfeiture bill and began the discussion of the customs administration bill. After the transaction of some routine morning business, of little public importance, the consideration of the laud forfeiture bill was resumed. Mr. Plumb, who has charge of the bill, discussed Mr. Calls amendment as to lauds iu Florida and said that there was no evidence before the Senate (outside of that Senator's statement) that there was any considerable number of people on the lands in question. If the amendment was adopted, it w< » d east a cloud on the titles of all persons to railroad lands in Florida; and the bill would be not a bill of peace and quiet buta bill of destruction. He closed his remarks with an allusion to the Democratic side of the chamber as being influenced in its action by geographical aud sectional differences. Mr. Berry replied to that allusion and then went on to discuss the Florida amendment and i he bill-generally. He believed in standing by tlie'eontract, Mr. Mitchell—Does the Senator hold that where a Railroad has been completed, but not within the time limited in'the grant, and where an act of forfcitu e has not been pasKfd. the company is not entitled to the land. Mr. Berry.—I have so stated it, and 1 re htate it. He went on to say in defense of Democrats iu congress, thiit.nine-tenths of the Republicans had voted uniformly against the forfeiture of railroad lauds earned out of tiiue, and that the Democratic bouse aud a majority of Democratic Senators h«d voted the other way. Mr. Platt offered a concurrent resolution (which was ageed to) requesting the President 10 return the Oklahoma bill. He explained that owing to an error of his own, the word "West" hnd been used in place of the word "East" in the boundaries. Argument on the land forfeiture bill was then resumed. Mr. Call made another extended argument in favor of his amendment. During its continuance, on motion of Mr. Sherman the Senate coucurred in the House amendment* to the resolution concerning' irritfa- iration of the valley of the Rio Grande. On a motion of Mr. Dolph, to lay the, Call amendment on the tabl^ no quorum voted, but a call of the Senate showing 47 members present Mr. Sherman gave notice that hereafter whenever a quorum was i.reseut and the vote did not disclose the fact, he would insist upon the sensible rule that Senators present and not voting be counted. In answer to questions of Mr. Cockrell and Mr. Klackburn, Mr. Sherman said he did n«t ndvocate disregarding pairs but there w-re one or two Senators present for -whom no pairs were announced who had not voted an 'he last roll call. The question being taken again, Mr. Call's amendment was laid on the table, 30 to 18 a party vote. Several amend- ineBtsi were offered and rejected. An amendment of Mr. Moody was agreed to. declaring tha| the act shall not be construed to confer any ri«hr, on any State corporation or person to lauds that were excepted in the grants. The bill was then passed without division. The Senate then took up the customs administration bill known as the "McKinley bill" The committee amendments and two formal amendments of Mr, Evarts were agreed to. Other amendments were offered and went over until to-morrow. At 5:35 p.»m. the Senate adjourned. HOUSE WASHING-TOW, D. C., April 29.— In the House to-day Mr. Pierce (Tenn.), rising to a question of personal privilege, denied a statement made a few days ago by Mr. Evans TTenn ) to the effect that there had been a ballot-stuffing in his district The Speaker ruled that this did not present a matter of personal pl jlr. Pierce responded sharply that he thought it did. The Speaker said that the gentleman had no right to make such a response to the chair. Mr. Mills (Texas)—Why did not the Speaker stop the gentleman from Tennessee («r. Evans) the oth«r The Speaker—The speaker-was not present when that occurred. Mr. Mills—Then you ought not to stop the gentleman from Tennessee now. The Speaker—That does not follow. Mr. Mills—It does follow. The Speaker—The chair does not desire to enter into any per.-onal controversy with the gentleman, and he thinks that if the gentleman will reflect he will not persist in the impropriety. fiir. Mills—I do not gee the impropriety when one gentleman charges another with fraud. The Speaker—The gentleman from Texas will please be in order. Mr. Mills—I am in order, and the Speaker is more out of order than the gentleman from Texas. Th* ruling is simply an outrage. The matter was then dropped. Senate resolution was concurred inconcern- ing the irrigation of the Arid lands in'the valley of the Rio Grand and the construction of a dam across that river at or near El Paso for the storage of its waste waters. The President is requested to enter in to negotiations with the Government of Mexico with a view to the irrigation of the valley. An amendment -was agreed to requesting the President to include iu the negotiations all other subjects of interest which may be deemed to affect so as to prevent the relations between the two governments. Senate joint resolution was parsed authorizing Lieut. Henry R. I>mley, t 1 . S. A. to accept a position under the government of the Republic of Columbia. By vote of 113 to 93 the House went into committee of the whole, (Burrows of Michigan in the chair), on the bill providing for the classification of worted cloths as woolene. Mr. Dinglev said that the object of the bill was to make clear a question which had arisen in regard to the classification of worsted goods under the existing tariff and to correct all doubt aud misapprehension. Justice required that worsted clothB should be cla;-sified as wooieB cloths. Worsted cloths were made of wooll precisely the same as woolen cloths. It required the same amount of wool to make pound of worsted cloth as to make » pound of woolen cloth. The cost of production was substantially the same Bad the uses to which the two cloths were pwt were substantially identical. At this point the committee rose to receive from the Senate a concurrent resolution, requesting the President to return the Oklahoma Territorial bill Mr. Perkins (Kansas) asked for tn« immediate consideration of the resolution, stating tuat a clerical error had been made iu the bill. Mr. Breckini-idtro of Ky., asked why if the secretary dad decided that worsted cloths sbould pay the same dut> as woolen cloths it was neneseary to pass this bill. Mr. Dinglev suggested that the -bill wa» identical with one reported by the gentleman, from the Ways and Means committee during th« lft»t congress. Mr. Breckidridge B»M that the Democrats disargreed with the decision of the secretary. Mr. D'mgley continuing, said thas before the ruling of the Secretary of the treasury ' on May 27th, 1839, woi>ted clothe, having the same amount of work, counting tn« same and used for precisely the same purposes as woolen cloth was paving a duty of 24 cents » pound,"while the duty on woolen- cloth was 35 cents a pound. The pending bill he said,was an excellent copy of the bill introduced at the congress by M>. Breckenridge of Arkansas, the gentleman on the other side bad incorporated it in their tariff bill. There was no question as to the justice of this measure. It did not involve the question between the two parties in regard to the tariff. Mr. Carlisle, (Ky.) said that it was well known that he would prefer to equalize rates of duty by a redaction rather than by an, it)crease;but it would be conceded that this was impossible at the present time. The effect of tlie bill would be simply to raise the compensatory duty on worsted cloths from 18 and 24 cents to 35 cents thus placing these goods on the same footing as woolen cloths. Mr. Mills, (Texas,) said the courts of the country held i bat a tax was a burden on the people and when there was auy possible controversy about the construction of the laws the courts held that tn« least burden must be imposed npo* the people. Mr. Cumming*. o! (»ew York) thought that the proposed legislation was an act of injustice ratner than of justice. Adjourned. THE BEHRING- SEA DISPDTK. WASHINGTON, April 29.—There U good authority for the statement that the government of the United States and Great Britain are now further apart in their negotiations in regard to the question as to whether or not Behring sea is a cloeed «•», than they have been at any tame sinew the negotiations were began. The United States maintains that w is a closed sea. and was made taj*? the treaty of 1825, while the British government contends that that treaty does not at all cover the case. REPUBLICAN CACCCS. WASHINGTON, D. C., April 39—The McComas bill to prevent the "gerrymandering" of Congressional districts and the "Merrill Service Pension" bill were the subjects discusseo bv the caucus of Republican lueni- bers of the House to-night.
