WASIIIXRTOX, March 4.—In the senate Tuesday the conference report on the copyright bill was presented, explained by Senator Platt (Conn.), and agreed to. There were two points, however, onwhich no agreement had been reached—the Sherman amendment allowing the importation (on payment of tariff duties) of foreign copies of copyright books and the Ingalls amendment allowing the importation of / newspapers and magazines. Being satisfied that no copyright bill could become a law with these two amendments, Senatoi 1 Platt moved that the senate recede from them. A lengthy discussion followed. ' A division of Senator Platt's motion having been called for the question was taken, first on the motion to recede from the Sherman amendment. The motion was defeated—yeas, 2S; nays, 33. So the Sherman amendment was insisted oni TJie same course was taken with the Ingalls amendment without a division and a further conference was ordered. The senate then proceeded to the consideration of house pension bills on the calendar. After passing about sixty such bills the business was laid aside temporarily. When tlie senate met at S o'clock in the evening the passage of the house pension bills on the calendar was considered. All the house pension bills that were on the calendar were passed, their passage not occupying much more than an hour. The conferrees on the diplomatic ap propriation bill settled the only remaining point in dispute by striking out the proposition for a cable between the United States and Hawaii. The conference report on the post office appropriation bill was agreed to. The conference report on the copyright bill was then presented, read and explained by Senator Platt. He said it was the only agreement that could be reached, and that a failure to agree to it would be equivalent to a defeat of the bill. If the report were agreed to it would provide that books which were on the free list under the McKinley bill (two copies) could be imported free of duty. It left out Senator Sherman's amendment. It left everyone at liberty to import two copies of a foreign book by paying the duty on them, and it left newspapers and magazines to be imported provided they did not contain copyright matter. Further discussion followed, and the vote was finally taken, the report being agreed to—yeas, 27; nays, 10. The conference report on the agricultural appropriation was at 12:35 presented and agreed to. At 1:15 Wednesday morning the senate proceeded to executive business. Senator Pasco (Fla.) at 2:25 a. m. (Wednesday) moved to reconsider the vote agreeing to the conference report on the copyright bill and also moved that the house be requested to return the bill to the senate. The vote was taken on the latter motion and resulted —yeas, 13; nays, 22—no quorum. WASHINGTON, March 4.—The senate was in session all night. At 4 o'clock a. m. Senator Allison (la.) presented the conference report on the legislative bill, the senate receding from the amendment as to senators, clerks and session committee clerks and leaving them still at a per diem compensation. The report was agreed to. The conference report on the agricultural appropriation bill and a partial conference report on the deficiency bill were aTeed to and a further conference ordered on the latter. At 0:15 the senate took a recess until 9 a. m. The senate resumed its session at 9 a. m., the vice president in the chair. A quorum was not obtained until 9:30. In the meanwhile various matters of routine came up and were disposed of. On motion of Senator Sherman (0.) the senate went into executive session. When the doors were re-opened .the clerk of the house appeared and announced that the house had agreed to the conference report on s the general deficiency bill. Immediate ly afterward Senator Hale (Me.) presented the same conference to the senate and moved its adoption. Senator Stewart (Nev.) asked what disposition had been made . of the amendments that were in dis- •pute. He was informed by Senator Hale that the house conferrees were so firm iu. their resistance to those amendments that it had become a question, of. giving up the amendments or .giving up the bill. " In consideration, mainly of the large pension appropriation which the bill contained, the senate conferrees had receded from the amendments and the' amendments were now out of the bill. After a vigorous protest by Senator Stewart the vote was taken and the conference was agreed to. Senator Ransom (N. C.) offered a resolution, which was agreed to, tendering the thanks of congress to the vice president for the courteous, dignified and : able manner in which he had presided over the deliberations of the senate. INDIANA. Doings of the Lawmakers— Other Interesting News. & 4 ^ */4 $ Tins r.ejjlsiaturp. IXDIAXA.POI.I.S, March 5. — The senate on Tuesday passed the bill giving this city a new charter, which places the appointment of all boards in tlie hands of the mayor, abolishes the board of aldermen and makes radical changes in the fundamental laws governing the city. The govern?]- vetoed the mine inspection bill, but the senate immediately passed it over his objections. The house passed under a suspension of the rules a bill which adds to the state tax levy six cents in the Si00 valuation for the support of charitable institutions. It is expected that it will add §525.000 a year to the staters "resources,"' and it will increase the levy from twelve to eighteen cents.' The house passed a bill which adds n, penalty of imprisonment from ten to thirty days for liquor dealers who sell without a license. The sena.te bill appropriating:5100,000 for the Indiana world's fair exhibit was called up in the house: A motion to make the amount £45,000 finally prevailed amid much excitement. Gov. Hovey will probably feel compelled to veto the bill should it pass in its present form. There is, however, little expectation that the senate will agree to the. amendment in time to pass the bill, ' Kolibcrs Run Down.
