He submitted the report and it waB ordered printed in the Jlecord, Mr. McKinley then gave notice that to-morrow immediately after the reading of the journal he would Call up the report for consideration, and final disposition. Mr. McMillan of Tennessee trusted that gentleman would not insist upon that. The conferees had not agreed upon the most of the controverted matters un til yesterday evening. Some of them had not been agreed upon until today. The members of the house had never heard or seen the conference report. It could not be properly studied within the time indicated. It was utterly impossible to have a calm and thorough investigation of this important measure within the time mentioned.

There was no disposition on the part of Democrats to delay consideration, but the bill should be carefully considered. Mr. McKinley said that the bill as it would be printed contained all the changes which had been recommended by the conference committee. Whenever a paragraph had been amended that paragraph would appear in small capital i letters. As to many of the principal fea-A'tureB of the bill tho points of disagreement (' had been perfectly well understood for weeks, and it waB perfectly understood what the conference committee had recommended. It was late in the seB-Bion. The gentleman on both sides were anxious to get home and he must insist upon the consideration of the report after the reading of the journal tomorrow. Mr. McMillin thereupon insisted upon the reading of the conference report. The reading of the report was not completed when the hour of 0 o'clock arrived and the house took a recess, the evening session to be for the consideration of private pension bills. - Before recess Mr. McKinley offered for reference a resolution for the final adjournment of congress on Tuesday next at 2 o'clock.
