Senator Vest proceeded to discuss the message in detail and pointed out various inaccuracies iu it. Tlie'prpsident, Senator Vest said, had rhetorically charged congress wills extravagance; but if the president had turned to the river and harbor bills enacted in Ihe last six years he would have discovered that, consid- ing the si/.e of tin''country and the demands of internal, commerce, the bill was comparatively economical. He prophesied as "coming events east, their shadows before," that in a very few years the attention of congress would 'be drawn to the necessity of immediately improving all the waterways of the country in order to give chea]>er transportation to the people. He pointed out the revolution that has been made in the grain exporting trade, by the deepening of the mouths of the Mississippi—New Orleans having become thereby the chief grain exporting port of the country. Shcramn Agulnflt Veto Power. Senator Sherman (rep., 0,-) gave reasons why he should vote for the passage of the bill, notwithstanding the president's objections. In the first place, he did not think that such an- apprOprSl- tion bill ought ever to be vetoed under any circumstances. It was not a mandatory provision, but merely a permissive one. If the secretary of the treasury said that there was no "money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated," he was not bound to expend it. 'So that the president Ixad complete control of the whole matter. Therefore, he could .not confceive a case where such a bill should be vetoed!',, Congress, Senator Sherman declared, ought to stand by its. exclusive power to appropriate money, leaving lo t-he president the expenditure of it only when there is suflicient money in the treasury for .the purpose. He could not imagine a veto which he would support. Instead of seven vetoes in the first £8 years of the government, vetoes came to one house or the other now i.lmost every day. Congress ought to curb, or check, if possible, the exercise of the veto power. 'Senator Vilas (dem., Wis.) said that although the state of Wisconsin had been liberally treate-u in the bill, he conhl not bring himself to face the conviction that, under present circumstances, the large appropriations in it ought r.-ot to be supenulded to tlu weight of obligations already imposed on the distressed shoulders of the people. • Where .Sena.tor Yilns asked, was the money to come from? Arguments in favor of 1he passage 01 the bill were mode by Messr/, lierry (dem., Ark.), P<-,ttigrew (rep.. S. D.), Stewart (pop,, Nov.), and Hawley (rep., Con-n.). Mr. Bate (Aem., Tcnn.) spoke in support, of the veto, as did also Mr. Hill (dem. N. Y.); After Senator Hill had finished his speeeh in support of the veto power he introduced a'joint resolution proposing an amendment to the constitution giving the president the power to veto items in an appropriation bill. It was rend and laid on the table. Senator Bntler (pop., X. C.) thought that Senator Hill's proposed ^amendment was quite consistent with the senator's action , a.nd vote Tuesday t.gainst the bond bill. Senator Butler bad also propoeed a constitutional amendment in regard'to the veto power—giving- a majority in each house the power to pass <i bill over the president's veto. Vote on Bill In JJcfjill. At the close of Mr. Butler's remarks the; vote, .was t;ikon and the river and harbor -Bill'-was passed over ,the president's veto.'by the necessary two-thirds majority—yeas, 50; nays, ^5; as follows: Yeas—Messrs.
