After an unusually exciting time over the senate free coinage amendment to the silver bill the house by a vote of 135 to 151 refused its concurrence to that amendment, and asked for a conference on the bill. Had the democrats voted solidly in favor of free coinage, as they did last week, the amendment would have been accepted; but, in addition to a number who absented themselves when the vote was taken, there was a respectable number that voted against the amendments, more than enough to offset the republicans who voted for them. As soon as the silyer bill was out of the way the house took up the federal election bill, and the exciting fight over that measure is now in full swing. The present program is to debate the bill until next Wednesday when a vote will be taken. The bill will pass the house, unless somethipg now unforseen shall occur to change the sentiments of a large number of republicans; but those best posted on legislative probabilities say that it will not pass the senate at tbis session, even if it is taken up by that body, which is extremely doubtful. The President threw a little bomb-shell in the house this week by telling several republican members that if the house accepted the senate amendments adding mote than $4,000,000 to the river and harbor bill, which carried nearly $21,000,000 as passed by the house, he would feel compelled to veto the bill. Quite a number of people believe that he intends to veto the bill anyway, Mr. Elaine's idea of an amendment to the McKinley tariff bill providing for reciprocity with the South and Central American countries continues to be an absorbing topic of conversation, in spite of the important happenings of the week. It is strongly favored by the President, and is gaining ground very rapidly in congress and unless all surface indications are at fault, the senate will certainly adopt it, and it will have an excellent chance of passing the House also. The more it is discussed the more friends it makes; it promises to afford relief not only to the overstocked manufacturer, but also to the great agricultural interests of the country by enlarging the market for our products. It is by no means a new idea with Mr. Elaine; it is only the legitimate outcome of the plans he began when Secretary of State under the late President Garfield and which would have been carried out under that administration had not the assassin Gi- teau shot Gen. Garfield. Senator Manderson has made a strong report to the senate which bears out the statement several times reiterated in this correspondence as to the horrible condition of the old rat trap used for the government printing office, the largest establishment of its kind in the world. Senator Manderson says, the only remedy is the construction for the use of this office of a fire proof building. Ground may at this time easily be obtained in the immediate vicinity of the present office; but unless congress shall act promptly in securing it private enterprise will get ahead of it by purchasing the ground for other purposes. The house committee on reform in civil service is preparing to make a general investigation of the workings of the present civil service law, and Commissioner Roosevelt has brought down a shower of criticisms upon himself by writing a letter to the committee suggesting how it should be conducted. Such a letter was hardly in good taste, whatever may have been the motive which inspired it. The long investigation by a senate committee of the dressed meat traffic, which took place last year, has borne fruit, and the senate committee on agriculture has favorably reported a bill to provide for the inspection of all live stock about to be slaughtered intended for human consumption in any state or territory other than where slaughtered, or for exportation. The house bill authorizing oaths to pension papers to be administered by any official authorized to administer oaths for general purposes has been favorably reported to the senate. Senator Ingalls hit the nail square on the head, as he usually does, when he said that Senator Call of Florida had not only grossly violated and abused the privileges of the senate; but had deliberately falsified the record in filling fourteen pages of that publication with a personal statement defending himself from an attack made upon him by a citizen of Florida It cannot be too often stated that the Congressional Record' should contain only what actually takes! place in coneresa. i place in p ^ m .

Vinton Observer: The Sioux City Journal is not in favor of a federal election Jaw. its reasons are based on a concilia tory attitude towards the south. There has been too much conciliation toward that section since '65 for its own or the nation's good. A little straightforward justice proclaimed and established in fed eval relations would have been better years ago, better now than a sentimental oyergush of amnesty. The question simply is: Shall a big slice of the south have a representation in the national government on votes it does not count, admits and defiantly boasts that it does not count? And is this thing not to be stop ped for fear of a southern scolding or for fear of any kind of a rumpus the entire gang of brigadiers may be able to kick up What under the sun is the U. S. govern ment worth if it cannot secure to every de jure citizen a de facto federal suffrage? If this nation can not be run on principles of justice and equal rights, it cannot be run at all very long. Let the south work out its own'problems, so far as state jurisdiction is concerned, in its own unique way. A federal electon law proposes no interference to this. But let the authority that is highest in the nation see to it that the national functions,wherevei operating, are performed in accordance with justice and political equality. If this thing cannot be done without'sepa- rating state from national elections, do that. Let the slates stand on their own bottoms, but let the nation do no less. When congress, with the fullest of constitutional prerogatives in its hands, quietly admits to its membership an element which, because an outrageously fraudulent one, violates and disgraces all federal authority, that body ceases to be the supreme legislative power in the republic that it was designed to be by the Fathers, but has cravenly, or otherwise, submitted to a sectional dictation that can never bring anything but weakness to the general government. tting-ling- Day. Every important holiday event is known by some popular name. The Fourth of July is no more a general holiday than tho one on which the great Rmgling Bros. Monster Railroad Shows appear; and so universally has this become established that the advent of the enormous institution is known far and near as Ring'ing Day. The daily expenses of these monster shows are so great that, if their reputation was not so good that all feel they would be great losers if they missed seeing them, the Big Show could not live a month. This is why schools, factories, business places, and even legislatures and courts are closed when they come, and all transportation companies can afford to give their patrons cheap excursion rates.
