The bill was passed by a vote of 58 to 15 Mr. Spooner Compliments Mr. Blair. The educational bill was then taken up, and Mr. Spooner spoke In opposition to it He Bald he had voted once for the bill and once against it, slid now he again opposed it. He complimented Mr Blair upon his indus- try, courage and ability in his advocacy of the bill. He denied that the Republican party was pledged to the support of tha hill He could not admit that the Federal hand conlrl take jurisdiction of the school of a state and take It into inclusive charge. Speaking of Mr Blair's allusion to the press being in a conspiracy in favor of ignorance, lie said that the newspaper press could have no interest against the general interest of the people It could not have an interest agalmt universal knowledge If it hnd an; Special interest on the subject it was in the direction that eveiy man, woman and child should be taught, not only to read, but to read newspapers The Pros and the People. That the press tad not used more exten- sively Mr Blair's able analytical and ex- haustive speeches was due, he thought, to tha fact that the people of the countiy were not today, as they had boon years ago, in tensely interested in favoring the bill In the west and south there had boen agieat change in public opinion and in the attitude of neivjopapera that had foiuierly favored the bill Mr Bpooner spoke in temis of praise of the provisions for common school education in the southern states, and said that the people of those states had not only been doing well in the education of white children but had boen doing wellm the edu- cation of colored children He had seen, he 'said, no stronger condemnation of the measure than the argument of the president in his annual menage, and which the sena- tor from New Hampshire considered as an argument in ito favor ine President'! words.

If confess were to offer to ap- propriate air millions for school purpoocf in Sew York it would be laughed at. He commented the fact that this bill did not contain a provision which the former bills had contained, requiring the school _ books in use to have the approval of the, secretary of the interior, He supposed that its absence now was to be con.u-ued as a concession to the south in order to obtain votes for tha bill Mr Blair remarked that that amendment had boen thrown in by the moat persistent Republican of the bill in order to tantalize and the of south, Education in the South. Mr Spooner continuing, and in conclud- ing, laid he thonght education on the in- stallment plan was dangerous, and that the effect of the bill would be to stimulate un- duly schools in the south, and that when the eight yean ended (it they ever did end) the sou them statai would object to raiting by tai-ation the gams that would then bt> n-cessary to up the schools. MA bo iioveil that, with people with Individ- "i B, self help was the bout help He pe lieved that the tendency of the day was too j much to paternalism In and that the polity of the Dill, if entered upon, would never end.

Judge Garrison charged that wilful premeditation had not been proved, and that a verdict of mnrilflr the first device should not be rendered He said verdicts of either the second degree, manslaughter or acquittal would lay He said the testimony and conduct of the defendant alone should greatly influence the jury The testimony of Smith and Murray, if the jury believed it, left no uncertainty ae to guilt, but he called attention to the vig- orous attack made on their veracity The charge lasted forty-five minutes It was able and impartial The jury then retired.
