TBIC FAN-AMEBICAKS. aud Washington, March 13.-In the senate a concurrent resolution for the investigation at immigration matters, together with two house araendmenta extending the investlKation of tlie purchase of American industries by foreign capital, and to the use of Bedloe's i-land, in New York harbor, as an immigration depot, was taken up and the house amendments agreed to. The senate then proceeded to vote on the resolution to exclude . from Th6 Record the interpolations made by Mr. Call in the rep'jrt of tho discussion with Mr. Chandler! The resolution was agreed to-yeas 86, nays 14. Four Democratii vottd in the affirmative, ;viz Messrs. Payne, Pugh, Vance and Cock-reli. Consideration of the resolution for the election of a'president pro tern, to act duiing the absence of the vice president was ihen proceeded with. - ; Senator George made an. argutaent against the resolution on' constitutional grounds, holding up the itivariable jpr&-cedent of the senate in support of bis views. The Constitution, he laid, jwaa to be set aside fdr mere matter'of convenience. � \ . , During the course of Mr. QeoWe's ra-: marks the hour of 3 o'clock' having- arrived the educational bill.came: tip aslun-fiuished business. At the conclusion of Mr. George'3 .emarks, the matt�rof fixing a day for taking a yctteojn'the;bill was takea up, and aftersome discussion Thursday, March 20, was fixed upon! for general debate to close at i o'clocb.' " Mr. Plumb, however, gave uotice^bat he would m ive to take up some other measure and to set aside the Blair bill. : Mr. Pluiiib moved an amendment to rule ao to provide that all voles taken in seuret session, whether yea votes or otherwise, shia.ll be made public at the close ot the soiision at. which they were cast The motion was re erred to the committee on rules. Consideration of the resolution in jre-gard to president pro tempore was [resumed and Mr. Turpie moved an amend-;ment, which was .icceptedrby Mr. Evarts, read that jiKe- pres-lident pro teinporestiaU hold office "during all future absences of .the'viije-pijea-' �ident." The resolution was'agroed ' to without a division. v,,u':,.i:; - The educational bill was then taUen .:up :and:MrS(3eDrge:sp,;)ke.inri8upporJ^ tlie bill. He regarded the measure as a' generous off�r made by the northern Ktates to tlie Southern states. He would not ask alms for tlie., people of, Mississippi, but he should not go into the pinning business as the senator from West Virginia (i\Ir. Baulkner) had done some weeks ago when he got on his high horse and proposed to spurn bribes and all that sort of thing. There was no hr'me in i>. But he did not feel that he had a right when ha looked at the condition: of a large portion of the black people of Mississippi to reject the ptfer made. Mr. George said that while he did not share in the idea that the colored people of the s"buth would be elevated by eoU-catio)!, he was willing to have "'the op^ portunity extended to them. He tfaien branched into a defence of the white people of the south i nd a criticism .of those who stir up dissensions at the south for political purposes. Senator Hoar speaking in support jOf the bill, said that the measure was nearer to his heart than anything else proposed or discussed beforih the American people. If he could be assured that the bill could become a ktw and the great consequences would result from it which he expected to result, hew uid be willing to go out of public life to-, morrow and never to be again heard of among his countrymen. The'debate then took a sectional tum| Mr. George arguing that the act for the readmission of Mississippi, Texas and Virginia forbids those states from imposing an educat onal test to voters. Finally tho discussion came to a dose and after a short executive session, the senate at 6 p. m, adjourned. Houiie. The house passed senate bill appropriating $6,100 for removal of sand oa,r8 at the entrance of the harbi r of Milwaukee, Wis. Bdls were also passed granting the right of way through the Sisseton and Wahpeton Indiaii' reservation in Dakota to the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad company, and extending time of payment to purcniu of land from the Omaha Indians in Nebraska. The house went into committee of > the whole on the Uklahoma bilL - AIouk discussion followed over fthe proponed 'amendments prohibiting the sale of in-' 'toxioating liquor? in the territo> y, and a higlvlicen-ie amendnient;;?but'finally an amendment prohibiting; the'introduction,: of intoxicating liquors into the territory until after the aa;joumment,a�. the first session of the' territorial \os^ig,X\ue, was jadopted, by : a ,vote of TO tOiSt.'^'iOn motion: of, Mr., Holinan'of' Irraiana an amendment was adopted providing that none of the lands embraoe'd-'irithe to<t-ritory shall inure to the use or benefit of railroad corporations except the right of way heretofore granted.

Washington, March 13.-The Pan-American congress committee on "communication on the Atlantic," presented its report to the conference. The com-niittee recommisnds the establishment of a subsidized fast bi-monthly passenger, mail and. freight steamer service, lietwecn the United States and Bio de Janeiro, Montevideo and Buenos Aires; also an auxiliary bi-monthly freight line. The conti acting governments fire to contribute aid to the fast lines in the following proportions: Uni ed States, 60 per cent; Argentine Republic )7i; Brazil, 17i; Uruguay 5. Contracts for the service are to be solicited by advertisements. in papers in each contracting country, and in awards due consideration is to be- given to existing contracts with Brazilian lines. In consideration of the higher aid to be paid by the United States, the contracting parties are to accept only vessels con-strucied in this country. The committee also recommends to the governments iiiterested. the encouragement of direct cable itnes to connect the countries interested with a good telegraphic service at equitabls rates. The Secret SesRlou InventlKatlnn. Washington, ^March 13.-The outcome of the Dolph seijret session investigation has not been foreshadowed very clearly yet, but the opinion is beginning to prevail that whftn the committee makes a report on the:^ fruitless resiilt of its examination.of senators and employes of the Senate the.whole matter wiil be dropped.' Mr, Dolph's footing has been very slippiery for some time, and it: ap- ' pears now that he will not have a majority of the senate . back of him when the resolution to punish the newspaper correspondents for, contempt comes to a final vote. The outdoine of the matter Will pirobttbly be tlie discussion with open doors of the proposition to' discontinue the practice of ioonsiderihg nominations in secret session. Senator Ingalls' proposition to appQint ,a jcommittee. of conference to bring about an amicable agreement wiih tho newspaper men is regarded with a great deial of favor on the floor. It is hardly .practicable, however, as no committee of-Washington correspondents 'would havfe the authority to Vbind the newspapers of the country, to refrain fi,oih publishing any particular class of ine^ws,. Several senators will ])resent the argu-ment,iu.the ^enate. that it .is safe to trust to the nice discriinination of the newspapers as to what'is proper to publisH. .
