The Oklnhema Bill the House. WASHINGTON, March 14 senate yes- terday amended and passed two house bills for bridges acroas the Missouri river at Pierre, S. D., and across the Columbia river between Washington and Oregon. Mr. Eustis referred to two statements made by Mr. Hoar Wednesday in reference to the Southern states, one being that in the state of Louisiana, and in some other states, there were laws which made it a penal offense for a white man to associate on terms of equality with a black man. He assorted that there wan not the slightest foundation for such a statement. Ths other statement of Mr. Hoar was to the effect that there was another law in Louisiana which pro- vided for the sale of colored men for a cer- tain time out of work, and that the former master should have the preference in the purchase. He asked Mr. Hoar whether he could find any such law on the statute books of Louisiana. He (Mr. Euftis) knew that the criticism was directed against the Demo- cratic legislature of Louisiana in 1806-87 but he had never heard a Republican senator criticise the infamous laws enacted in Ixauis- wna by Hepublican legihlutures. There was no law, however, as that which Mr. Hoar had referred to, and any proteuse that there was only illustrated with what reck- lessness and destitution of sense of responsi- bility Republican senators spoke of southern affairs. Mr. Hoar said he had read about Louisiana but a law of this character existed in Missis-1 sippi. The education bill was taken at 2 o'clock and Mr. Blair addressed the seriate. At the conclusion of his remarks Mr Hoar resumed the discussion of the laws of outhern states relating to colored people lad it not been for the objectionable laws lassed by some of thesouthern states, he said, .he government of these stales would have )een remanded in ISOJto those who governed before the war. Mr. Sherman asked Mr. Eustis whether he lid not know that the fifteenth amendment wver would have been proposed but for the act that laws of the southora were de- iriving the negro of his rights of citizenship. Mr. Enstis asserted that-all rucomtruction measures and constitutional amendments vere adopted by the Republican party with he single object of Africanizing the South xnd maintaining political supremacy and his he characterized a.s the "p-ivatcst crime ver committed against civilized commun- ties." Mr. Sherman then made a long defense of econstrurtion measures. The first act that for the reconstruction of the Southern tates had been framed by a committee of onservative senators, such as Johnson, TrumUill and Kessenden. There was at that e no hostility against the [jenple of the Ionth; but rather a universal appreciation of was passed-160 to 36. It B a substitute for the senate bill. The new territory include) the Cherokee outlet and provides for the election of a legislative assembly. The Cher- okee outlet is made public land and open to homestead settlement. Adjourned. WHO PULLED THE CORD? The Buffalo Coroner Unable te Locate the Oulltjr Han. BUFFALO, March the coroner's jury yesterday in the Bay View accident case Grosvenor I. Bond, fireman on the en- gine of the wrecked train, explained what happened in Dunkirk. He heard the bell that sounded about the time of the accident and soon felt the train slowing up. When it stopped somebody ran up and shouted: "We're broke in two, Ed, pull out of there'll be a collision." The engineer tried to start, but tbe train wouldn't move. The nroman was positive that the engineer did not set the brakes that stopped the train, and gave as a reason that he could hear the air when the engineer applied it. The jurors did not all accept this explanation and the witness ex- plained just how the apparatus was placed and how it worked Juror you willing to swear positively that the engineer could not set the brakes without your hearing it? "He could not while I was in the cab, as I was at the time." Tbe witness thought that it would take linger to loosen the brakes when set from tbe engine. C. B. Couch, division superintendent of ;he Lake Shore, testified as to the instruc- tions given to the trainmen in case of a train M-eaking in two. He was allowed to read from the "Book of Rules" of. the road. Coroner Mr. Houghtaling jreak these rules when he started the train 'rom Dunkirk as he did? "We think replied Mr. Couch. "If he had lived up to the rules the train would have been repaired at "Yes, the rules are plain on this point." Mr. Couch stated that the engineer was jointly responsible with the conductor, and with the train in the condition it was any trainman would have been held by the com- pany as justified in refusing to go ahead with it. Juror Leech rather cornered Mr. Couch by asking how many brakemeii there were on this tram. Mr. Couch replied that there were two on duty. "But had the train broken in two more than once would there have been men enough on to handle the Mr. Couch had to say "No." Juror Chase then asked Mr. Couch what he would have done with Conductor Houghtal- inB if he had brought the train safely on to Buffalo. Mr. Couch said a rule was broken but he f-ould not say what would have been done. Some of the jurors seemed to think the re- lief train was slow in getting to the wreck. Mr. Couch said (he only delay was in getting surgeon-, to go. The train left some of then Itelund as it waa. g Juror there any orders to who might go on the relief train) Mr. were none.

Engineer Mooney Has recalled, but his testi- mony was unimportant. ----'s thought it night posbibb have been bet'or not to have onfenvd suffrage on the mlnnx! miin be- cause thnt right had been imlli.ie'i, and suf- frage did not now exist with colored men wherever it might lie vshmble to them. There was-, he said, no feeling of hate exist- ing in the North agaiiust tim South as intK mated by Mr. George, and if the equal rights of all people iu tbe South were secured the people North would be satislied. Negro suf- frage hail not turned out us, had been ex- [wcted, because no man had dreamed such measures as had been resorted to in the South would have been raortod to to de- prive the negro of bis rights Injustice had grown out of the flftt'enlh amendment, and out of it not only hud the negroes been de- prived of their votes, but the pejple of the Bouth enjoj-od larger political power than the number of people of the North, and until the southern states these colored men their rights there would he disquiet and discontent and H feeling of injustice. He trusted the time would come when this feeling would disappear and every man should have a right to vote. Congress, he said, could not exercise any control in the local affairs of the southern state-, but what he insisted upon is that there shall be a law that will protect the right of suffrage and that that law will be executed with such power that no man dm e to expose himself to its pen- alties. Mr Butler, replying to Mr. Sherman, said that if the debate had accomplished nothing- else, it had shown by the statement's of the senators, from Ohio uud Massachusetts that the suffrage had been confeired upon the negro of the South, not because he was en- titled to it, not because he was qualified to exercise it, but because of certain laws passed by some of the southern states immediately alter the war. The admission of tho senator from Ohio, he thought, would go a long way in throwing light 011 any future discussion as to the rights of the negro to vote in the South Referring to the administration of Presi- dent Johnson, Mr. Butler s- iid that one of the most unfortunate days that had ever come over the couutry was the day that brought about a conflict between the executive and the legi-ikitive department of the United States. Between the and the nether mill stoue, between tbe executive policy on the one bide and the legislative on the other, the Soutii had been ground to powder. Mr. Butler spoke of the exclusion of colored men in the northern states from all political olnces, and asserted that there was no discrimination in the Inws of South Carolina, L.o'.ii-.ianfi or Georgia against a man on account of his race or color. He believed that the great body of the people Norfn were kindly toward the people of the South, and taat that kind- ness had been very much stimulated by the fact that millions of money were being sent for investment He -warned the sena- tor from Ohio that whenever he attempted to carry out his threat of another erusajle upon the South, through supervisors and United maiMinK for the purpose of dominating elections cliure. he would have a fire in bis rear from the men who had carried their money and their industry into the goutb. Ths senate then went into executive session. paper currency. The report discussed at some length. It seemed to IN THE HOUSK. WASHINGTON, March house yes- terday considered the Oklahoma bill and it be the sense of the committee that some ac- tion should be taken in the matter and a ma- members expressed themselves in favor of establishing a fractional paper cur- rency in connection with the postal service. It was finally agreed that consultation should be held with the postmaster general and the house committee on postoIHces and roads concerning the matter. Wreckfd on a Trestle. BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March of a freight, train on the Georgia Pacific railroad went through a trestle near Horse Creek Mines. The engine and car next to it passed ovei snfely.

No lives lost fix Government May Introduce Bill IB Accordance With Their Excltinc Expected In the Com- Mr. Farnell'i Farinrra' Protect. LONDON, March 14. A deputation repre- senting the working classes in a majority ot the cities of the kingdom called upon Home Secretary Matthews yesterday to urge upon the government to secure the passage by par- liament of a half holiday bill. The argu- ments of the deputation were ably presented and attentively listened to by Mr. Matthews, wno promised that the government would take the matter into serious consideration and if deemed feasible would introduce measure framed upon the lines suggested. The prospect of another exciting debate in the house of commons is assured by the an- nouncement that Mr. Paruell intends to move the appointment of a select committee to in- quire into the origin of the forgeries pub- lished in The Times and that Mr. Gladstone will second the motion. The origin of and responsibility for the publication ol the for- geries being the one phase of the warfare of I he Times against the Parnellites (presum- ably because of the large number of leading Tory officials having a hand in the nutter) that the government is determined to keep secret at all hazards, it may be assumed that ;he fight over the motion will be a hot one. It seems to be generally taken for granted ;hat The Times holds a sword over the gov- ernment which, if the paper were abandoned to its own defence, would fall to the perma- nent injury if not total political destruction of many ministers, peers and commoners whose excessive zeal led them into indiscre- Jons they now regret. A PROTEST FROM THE EARMEH8. The- farmers in the vicinity of Dover have 'onvarded a protest to the war office against the annual Easter military manoeuvres, which, they say, ruin their crops and injure other property, often beyond repair. The protest recommends the selection of some other place for manoeuvres iu order that the hardships which the petitioners have annu- ally undergone may be at least temporarily visited ujjon some other community and not permanently upon themselves. Justice Sir James Hannen has taken his departure for Home, where will rest until Easter. His arduous duties as presiding jus- tice of the special commission have told heavily upon his physical powers, and the rumor of his elevation to the peerage as a reward for his labors is again revived. It is fenred that the arrest of the French- man taken into custody by the German mil- itary authorities as he was crossing the frontier at Belixjrt Wednesday will seriously strain the relations of France toward the Berlin labor conference, which promised to be most amii able. The affair has already created great excitement in Paris, and is being used with visible strong effect by the Parisian journals, which liave from the out- set opposed France's taking any part in the conference. Horr Krupp, the gunmaker, has donated the SMM> of for the purpose of erect- in? dwellings for workingmen at Essen. The miners of E: ,en have served the mas- ters with a demand for an increase of wages by 50 p.-r cent, and a reduction of their work- ing hours to eight per day. SNAITH'S CONTRACT. Mr, Alntwerth Tells of the Mlul.( Cote Testifies. ALBANY, March Fremont Cole, in the Snaith case, taetUed as te the letting of the contract by the commission te Snaith but could not swear positively as to the papier mache clause. Snaith was the lowest bidder and the work was let to him. John Mooney of New York, a contractor, testified that he had men tbe ceiling before removal and had made a bid on the new plans shown in Mr. Andrews' office. He had about two weeks to make his estimates and had consulted with Mr. Sullivan before he made his bid. He had taken such conversa- tion into consideration in making his bid. Ex-Assemblyman D. E. Alnsworth, who was chairman of the appropriation commit- tee, said that he was in a great measure ac- quainted with the danger in the old ceiling Mr. Andrews presented drawings and esti- mates for a new ceiling. The committee drew a bill and such bill was passed in an smended condition. He was chairman of the Ainsworth investigating committee. There was one paper, the long hand original speci- fication, that is now missing. He did not know that it was stolen. It disappeared the day after it was received and nobody bad seen it since. George S. Weed of Platteburg, an ax-as semblyman, and one of the appropriation committee, detailed the action of the com- mittee in arranging for bids. He had not seen any plans or specifications. He did not know of any change in plans and he had not agreed to any. On cross-examination he said that he re- membered that the attorney general was to sign and look over the contract. He remem- bered very little about the meetings, but sailed to mind the laying out of certain sums cor Andrews and the architect Ex-Assemblyman William H. Gallup one of the commission, testified that at the flrst meeting Mr. Andrews had bids in his hand, but the commission agreed to advertise for a week. Snaith was in the room after the bids were opened at the second nxwting. Attorney General Tabor was put upon the itend, and counsel for Snaith objected to his uunveriiig about the appending of tbe specifl- ;ations to the contract. The contract was in his office only oue day and then they were taken away without having the specifications ippomled. The court then took a recess until April 8 U 10 a. m. MR. CRESCENT CITY FLOODED.

Lord George Hamilton, first lord of the admiralty, stated that the estimates for naval construction for the coming financial year would be exclusive of for armaments. Mr. Samuel Smith, member for Flintshire, asked whether tbe British ambassador at St. Petersburg had been instructed to direct Russia's at tention to the reports of cruelties in Siberia. Mr. W. H. Smith replied that the govern- ment had been unable to ascertain the troth of the reports nnd theiefore had no power to approirh Russia in regard to them. The house being in committee on the supply bill, Sir B. B. Hamley, member for Birkenhead, moved to increase the grant for volunteers so as to meet deficiencies in their equipment. Mr. Ooschen opposed the motion and a vote was taken. The motion was carried 135 to In tbe committee on supply Mr. Edward Stanhope, set-rotary of state for Ware, ex- plained the scheme of Gens.
