SenAtor Hoap, 61 MaaAAchObAttA, lstrodactd In the aenata A joint resolution propoaing An Amendment ta the consUtntion proriding or the eleo-lion of poatmaaters by the people. A number of petition were presented to the aanAte, Among them one from Kelson, Neb., praying (sarcastlcAlly) that All ex-oldlera over 100 year old shall hava a pen-Alon of 13 A month. . Further routine boaineM taring been trensActed the silver bill was taken up And Mr. Cockrell Atldreased the fenata. H A&id that if enacted into law the further coinage of silver bullion into standard dol-lax would rest wholly In the mere discretion of the secretary of the treasury. Under th proposed measure the secretary would hare to purchase four and half millions' worth of silver every month and pay out treasury notes for it, but he was not required to coin any of it into silver dollars. . All the benefit that could be claimed for the proposed bill was that the secretary would be compelled to purchase fU0,0UO worth of silver every month more than be now had the right to purchase and that the currency would be increAaed to that extent. Silver bullion was to be treated as A mere commodity and was to be given none of the equivalent of money or currency. " la th House. Washixgtos, June 0. In the house Monday, on motion of Mr. Comstock, of Minnesota, the title of the silver bill, passed Saturday, was amended so as to read as follows: "Directing the purchase of sliver bullion And the burae of treasury notes thereon, and for other purposes." Mr. Lodge, of Massachusetts, offered a resolution directing the secretary of the treasury to inform the house whether it is true that the Cunard Steamship company en Saturday last refuged to obey the orders of Uniwd States officers to give return passage to certain immigrants landed at New York by said company in violation of the contract labor laws; what steps have been taken to refuse entry to steamships of said company until th laws have been complied with And due reparation made for the refusal to obey the orders of the officers thereof. Business relating to the District, of Columbia was then taken up. : ... The French Spoliation Claim. Washington, June 9. Aftar a little mora legislation shall have been got out of the way the friends of the Frenoh spoliation claims hope to get the floor for the consideration of senate bill 1,507, making provision for the payment of those claims which have been passed upon favorably by the court of claims. . .. The chief objection urged Against such An appropriation heretofore has been that many of the claims were stale, and that they aggregated a large sum. The first of these complainto has been met repeatedly by proofs that age had not Invalidated Any of the just claims, which have been deferred through no fault either of the original claimants or their heirs. . The r:; urt of claims Adjudicated by the court shows, also, that the sum required to pay them is not enormous. What has frightened many members of on gross baa been the size of the first estimates, which they have carelessly confused with th Actual figures after the sifting process was finished. Less than tl.700,000 would liquidate the entire debt of the United State to the claimants who had successfully proved their cases down to the 24th of February of this year. This is a great descent from the $30,000,000 which was talked of by some of the calculators before the court began it wort. f Of the cases which were presented to the court those in which the vessel And th master were named and the amount of damage was specifically stated amounted to only about (3,737,000, and this was cut down by disallowances to somewhat over 11,666,747.99 more than one half; while those which were thrown ontr because of vagueness in essential details amounted to nearly 16,000,000. " . Pastor Thompson Bealgns. Boston, June 9. Rev. John 8. Thompson, V. V., pastor of the First Unitarian church, Bomerville, read his resignation because the parish desired him to live in a $30,000 homestead recently willed to the church by the late Columbus Tyler. The pastor, whose salary is $3,000 and Who has just purchased a house, declared the additional expense of such an establishment was entirely too heavy for him. Th society then proposed to use half of th houa for sewing circles and meetings.. This made the homestead rather less desirable to the pastor than before, with the result that he prefers to withdraw rather than engage in any controversy. Will Try to Beat the Racorrd.
