The senate joint resolution iu regard to the export trade in cattle was then taken up and Mr. Vest made a statement in explanation and advocacy of it. Senator Hale referring to Mr.. Vest's remark that American cattle were not allowed to be imported into Gr�at Britain, unless to be slaughtered within ten days, said that was an interesting fact as showing wbat tree trade EngVano did in the way of discrimination or prohibition. Senator Vest explained that the ground on which that exclusion was based was the supposed presence ol pleuro-pheumonia in American herds, but he said that not a single case of pleuro-pneumonia had been found among the exported cattle. After further discussion the resolution was adopted. It requests the president of the United States to cause correspondence and negotiation to be'haid through the department of state, or otherwise, with the authorities of the kingdom of Great.Britain, for the purpose of securing the abrogation or modification of regulatiotvsTiov? eniOTCed% said authority which requiriB cattle imported into Great Britain from the United States of America to be slaughtered at the port of entry and prohibiting the saine from being carried alive to other places in said kingdom. The senate bill to provide for the inspection of live cattle and beef products intended tor export to foreign countries was then taken up. A substitute for it reported from the committee on agriculture was withdrawn and the bUl passed. It requires the secretary of agriculture to cause to be made a careful uspection of all cattle intended for export to for^ eign countries from the United States, at such times and places and in such manner as he may think proper, with a view to ascertaining whether such cattle are free from disease, and for this purpose he may appoint inspectors who shall be authorized to give an official certificate clearly stating the condition in which such animals are found, and no clearance shall be given any vessel having on board cattle for exportation to a foreign country unless the owner or shipper of such cattle has a certificate from the inspector herein authorized to be appointed, stating that �aii' cattle are sound and free from disease. The secretary of agriculture is also required to cause to be made, a careful inspection of all live cattle whose meat is int�nded for exportation to any foreign country at such times and places and m such manner as he may tnink proper, with a view to ascertam whether said cattle are free from disease and their meat sound and wholesome, and no clearance is to be given to any vessel having on board any beef for exportation to, and sale in a foreijp country, from any port of the United States without a certificate from the inspector. On motion of Mr. Pasco the senate bill for the protection of actual settlers who have made homestead oi: pre-emption entries upon the public lands of the United States in the state of Florida upon which the deposits of phosphate have been disooveredi siuc� such entries were made, was taken from the calendar and passed. ; Senate bill for the establishment of a port of delivery at Bock Island, Dls,, was taken up and passed. Senator. Spooner offered � resolution, which was.agreed to, calling on the sec-' retary of the interior for a report of the amount of the claims heretofore presented to the department on account of Indian depredationB,whether such daimg have been adjusted or not. Senator Allison, from the .conference committee on the pension appropriation bill, presented a report, and stated that the only point of disagreement was tht amendment adopted by the senate in-creasing the number of: nenoLon ageuta from 18 to iO^ A further conference was asked. The lions� bill'to authorize the Leavenworth and Piatte County ' Bridge company to subetitnte a: pivot drawbridge over the^Missoari river' in place of a ''pontoonv'bridw from the calendar, amended andpassed. The senate then proceeded to' the con-' sideration of individual pension bills on the oalenUar 'and passed seveuty^flve:of them, , , � Hoaie. The house agreed' to. the conference' report the senate dependent pension bill-yeas, 145; nays, 56. ,., Mr., Stewart of Vermont presented sthA conference report on the senate anti-trost bills iiHe said that the effect of the repoi;t4"wa8 not, as had been sup^ posed, to, fsj>�>^l''.thp 'anti-ix>oling,pro-vision; of top V^ntei-sfete^' commerce law. state tr ade are within reach of federal legislation." The house amendment extends the scope of the act to all agreements entered into for the purchfisso or sale of commtiditias or in the transportation of persons or property within the iurisdioticfn oi congress. It declares illegal any agreement for relief from the effects of competition in the two industries of transportation and sale of merchandise, however excessive or destructive such competition may be. The amendment reported b^ the conferees is the senate clause, with the added proviso that the power of the states over the subjects embraced in the act shall not be impaired thereby. It strikes from the bouse amendment the 'clause relating to contracts for the purchase or sale of merchandise and modifies the transportation clause by making unlawful agreements which raise rates above what is just and reasonable. Mr. AndeTBon oi Kansas, argued that the bill would -virtually have fee effect of nullifying the anti-pooling feature of the interstate commerce law. The report went over without action and the house at 4:30 p. m. adjourned. A STAK BOUTK DECISION. i THE W Threatening Demonstrations by the Cheyennes f.n Montana. THE RANCHMEN RUN TO COTEB. A Call from Alileg City for Arma and Ammunition Promptly Met by the Governor -Government i:roapg Dlgpatched to the Begervatlon. florge Play on the Part of Contractors Win Be Pnnighed. Washinoton, , June 13.-Second Assistant Postmaster General Whitfield has received information that the crim-i nal action instituted under Section SO'i, postal Laws and Regulations,1887,a8 provided in Section 3,9.74 Revised Statutes amended by act of August 11, 1876, against W. A. Stoddard, failing contractor, has resulted in his conviction, in the United Sta,te8 court at Portland, Me. This is the first case on record where a conviction has been secured jn the case of a failing contractor, and it is believed that the result will correct a. great and growing evil in the postal service. CJompetitibn has become so close,' o^ng to the lar^e number of professional contractors engaged in carrying the mails on Mar routes, that in many cases there is only a few dollars difference between the lowest bid and the next one above it. Under the system of compror mises for actual damages, which was the difference between, the lowest bid and the next lowest, plus the cost of temporary service, which had grown up in the department, it was more advantageous to fail and pay this difiEerence than to perform the service or employ a subcontractor when the professional found that a losing contract had been made. The result of this course was that the failures were constantly increasing, notwithstanding, the fact that the contractor failing entered into the contract -with the government with, sufficient sureties and took oath to perform services according to the terms of his contract. Applications for compromises of this character have been adversely reported upon by the second assistant-postmaster general, jivhQ bas been ifijly BUBtained bythe postmaster- general' upon appeal. In addition to insisting upon the sum of the bond as the measure of damages. Col. Whitfield caused suit to be instituted under the penal statute, and the resulting conviction will no doubt tend to correct at once and finally an evil that had threatened to practically disorganize the star service. The General Penaloa Bill. Washington, June lii.-The general pension bill, as agreed upon by the con-ferrees and agreed to in tlie house, after providing for the pension of dependent parents, says that all persons who served three months or more in the military or naval service of the United States during the war of the rebellion, and who have been honorably dis-|-charged therefrom, and - who. are now or may hereafter be suffering from a. mental or physical disability of permanent character, not the result of their own vicious habits, which incapacitates them from the performance. of manual labor in such a degree^as to render them unable to earn a support, shall be placed rn the list of: invalid pensioners of United States and he entitled to receive a pension not exceeding |12per month
