Appropriation Asked to Defray Expenses of U- S, Marshals, Think It Would Establish a Dangerous Precedent—Cannon in Its Defense—In the Senate. WASMIXGTOX, Feb. 22.—The house ot representatives observed 'Washington's birthday by meeting an hour earlier than usual. The .senate concurrent resolution expressing- the gratification uf congress lit the high honors paid the late Minister Li ray bv the government of Mexico was laid before the house and agreed to. Speaker Crisp announced the appointment oi the following visitors: To the V>'est Point Military Academy —Messrs. Wheeler Idem., Ala.), Wash- lr."-ton(dem.,Tenn), aiid Millilceii (rep., Me.). To the Naval Academy — Messrs. Sayers (dem., Tex.), Tale (clem., (.la.), and Hull (rep., la.). The house committee o£ the whole- resumed consideration of the general deficiency appropriation bill for the current year. An amendment offered by Mr. Smith (dem., Ariz.) was agreed to pay to A. K. English, of Arizona, S750 for defending certain Indians in the United States courts of the territory by appointment of the judge. Echo of Clilcapo K:illivny Strike. An echo of the Chicago railway strike last summer was heard when the paragraph was reached appropriating Sl-10,000 ' ; for defraying expenses incurred by marshals in executing^ orders, warrants and processes of United States courts; for the protection of property in the hands of receivers of such courts, and for the arrest and detention until trial of persons "ivrrestecl for violating such orders and resisting the execution of such warrants and processes, to DO audited and allowed by the attorney general." A Dansrorous Precedent. Mr. Livingston (dem., Oa.) called attention to the unusual nature and terms of the item, and warned the house that if it were adopted it would form a precedent that would be a floodgate for the .expenditure _ of money by United States offiqials without direct responsibility. He said the committee had endeavored to find out from the attorney general h$w much, if any, of the money was expended for the protection of property noj in the hands of receivers and how much for the Illinois Ccntrtfl, how much for the Armours; and the attorney general did not answer. The committee, he said, was divided as to the propriety of making the c appropna- tion; and at the suggestion of Mr. Uoatner (dem., La.) he made a point of order against it. This was ruled out, as coming too late, a motion to strike out having previously been made. "Mr. Urosvenor (rep., 0.) said that" an appropriation of this amount should show in detail the payments that were to be made, und if the committee had, the information, it ought to be set out. "If property in possession of private parties had been protected under •the' order of United States oflicials," said Mr. Grosvenor, "that should not appear here." C»nnon Defends the Afljiroprlixlon. • The appropriation w5" defended by Mr. Cannon (rep., 111.). "At the time of the trouble," he said, "the administration found the civil arm of the government weak and unable to enforce the law. and over the protest of the governors the president ordered the army to the scene to enforce the law. AVc approved the action of the president," -said Mr. Cannon; "and this very bill carries an appropriation to meet the expenses "of the army in that movement. \Yhy does the gentleman swallow a camel and strain at a gnat? If it be right to pay the army for enforcing the law, much more is it : right to pay"the civil arm of the government for its efforts to enforce the same law." After some further discussion -' an amendment was agreed to, offered by Mr. Baker (rep., K. H.) -directing the attorney general to report to congress in detail the payments made by him under the appropriation. Court* Huve Too Much Power. The further consideration of the item precipitated a general, discussion of the merits of the action of the administration last summer., Mr. Breckinridge (dem,, Ky.), in charge of the bill, said that while he loyally supported the bill personally he was opposed to the item. His principal • objection was that it seemed to be giving courts of equity a far greater power than they should possess 'in respect of the affairs of thes= great corporations which came to them for relief and, through the . courts, gave to cor^ porations too great power over the laboring organizations. Mr. Henderson (rep., la.) had read the resolution passed by congress la»t August commending President Clereland for his prompt action In putting 1 down the disorder that had previously existed throughout the country. In executing that law for which congress h»d given its thanks to the executive, ex- pens^s had been incurred which It waj how called "on" To pay. Tne payment ought to be made and would be if the congress meant what it said last summer. Uemlzejet BUI Cover* ObJBCtlou*. Mr."Livingston (dem., Ca.) said in explanation of his position that he and those who believed with him were of opinion that some of the services proposed to be paid for were illegally rendered, and that if the appropriation were made it would be made without warrant of law. The adoption of Mr. Baker's amendment calling for an itemized report from the.nttorney general, Mr. Livingston said largely met his objections to the paragraph, and he therefore withdrew his motion to strike out. All the committee amendments having been disposed of the bill was declared open to general amendments. Mr. Cull (dem., Fla.) moved to amend the provision referring to the court of claims the claim of the Wichita and other affiliated bands for their share of the consideration paid for Indian lands by adding to it a proviso that the judgment of the court shall not be binding on congress, but ^only advisory and of persuasive force." "Where is the 'persuasion' to cense and the -force' to begin'?" Mr. Manderson (rep., Neb.) queried. [LaughterI. .JijiM Wins the! Soul. The house committee on elections decided the Goode-Epes contested election case from the Fourth Virginia district in favor of Mr. Epos, the .sitting member. Mr. Wheeler (rep.. =J11.) was present but did not vote, and Mr. Me- Call, who voted nay, reserved the right to change his vote. WASHINGTON, Feb. 2-.'.—Washington's birthday furnished the staple of the chaplain's opening prayer in the senate Friday. His petition was that the influence of that noble character should transmute the life and character of every American boy or man in this and all future, times. Two joint resolutions authorizing this secretary of the navy to donate unserviceable cannon to the state soldiers' home at Rosebnrg, Ore., and to tho mayor of. Burlington. Vt.. Cor decorating" Battery park, where soldiers and sailors of the war of li'.'- were buried, were taken from the calendar and passed. A J'roti'Kt: from J'ciiinylvniiiii. Senator Quay (rep., 1'u.) presented resolutions of the Manufacturers' club, of Philadelphia, "solemnly pro- testiii"- against a policy which, after impoverishing the American people by prostrating their industries and sub- jectinn- them to injurious foreign competition, heaps upon thorn, in time of profound peace, new and wholly useless burdens of debt," and request- in"-the representatives of tho state of Pennsylvania, "to voice the indignation of the people and to demand that the treasury credit should be strengthened solely by the obtainment of revenues from imports." One Bill for Each Senator. Senator Gorman made a proposition that there be a night session on Tuesday for the consideration of bills on the calendar not objected to; each senator to have an opportunity to call up one bill. It was acceded to. J'cttijrrow'n Ainonelinent Rejected. The senate then proceeded with the consideration of the Indian appropriation bill—the pending question being an amendment offered Thursday by Senator 1'ettigrew (rep., S. D.) to tho school paragraph—the amendment being to the effect that of the $1,104,350 appropriated in tho- para- erraph for the support of Indian day and industrial schools, $155,000 shall bo expended in support of contract schools, and that 20 per cent, of the latter sum may be used for the purchase of such contract schools as may be offered for sale. After some discussion the vote was first taken on the amendment reported from the committee on appropriations to strike from the bill the words authorizing the secretary of the'interior to reduce the amount used for contract schools proportionately each year, so that at - the ' end of five years all contracts for Indian children's education school shall cease. The amendment was adopted — yeas, 31; nays 23; and the clause was struck out of tho bill. The vote was then taken on Senator Pcttigrew's amendment, and it was rejected—yeas, 13; navs, 33. Two house bills to amend the articles for the government of the navy were taken from the calendar and passed. For'Distribution ot S«ctl«, A favorable recommendation to the committee on appropriations was made by the senate committee on forest reservations Friday on the amendment of Senator Pettigrew appropriating S300.000 for the distribution of seeds in the drought-stricken districts of the western states.
