Adopted. Ako an amendment providing that one of the member* of the l*«nl created to be barged with the selection of the government eft ii I 'it, shall be chosen by the fi*h coin tnissum. Adopted. Mr Candler expressed the satisfaction which in* felt iii tieing able to state that Chicago, winch had l***n selected by the house a* a site. had proved itself liefore th** committee equal to all that had t»een expected of it. The committee had found that 1'hicago not only comprehended the importance ami magnitude of the enterprize, but had entered into it with a determined spirit which had unpressed upon the committee the conviction t hut it would be successful in its undertaking. The committee wa* satisfied that Chicago had ruined a bma fide sui ascription of $0,0**0,tXU and wa* also satisfied that I hicago bad dont* more than had lieen expected from any competing city in agreeing that the subscription should I** rained to $10,000,000. In order t<» meet the conservative element which did not favor the holding of a fair the bill provided that the president should not uteue in* proclamation inviting foreign nations until he wa* satisfied that the contribution w a* a tx »na fide < me. Mr. Candler then offered an amendment on hi* individual motion to be considered as pending, providing for the dedication of the building* of the world'* fair with appropriate ceremonies Oct. 12, 1*22; and further providing that the exposition shall be often to visitors, not later than May I, 1H23, and shall close not later than Oct SO, 18(18. He said that this postponement wa* not asked by Chicago, but he thought it would insure to the iienefit of the exhibitor* who were to take jiart in the exposition. In conclusion he said that he believed that the fair would lie a grand advantage ami benefit to every section of the country. Mr. Bolden of New York said that New York ba I a*-rcptcd the decision of the house n n-gnrd to the location of the world’s fair *i great g'Kni faith. But that ital not precut her representatives insisting that then* -mould I** incorporated in this bill safeguard* that would secure that kUeoe** in Chicago which New York bad expected to achieve. lf tor the site had l»een selected, tile lliinoui tnembent of the special committee were asked by the members from New York fur the guarantee they had promised, and lo and behold they produced a palier marked exhibit A The first name on it wa* that of E. St John. and the amount mentioned was $8M),(XJ0. Mr Springer had told him that that amount had been promised at a meeting of railroad men. They had not yet sub scribed. That v.-a* the way that subscription tailed out. Exhibit B with more name* nromised a *• oarription of $614,(XA). On the ■ack was a memorandum without a name on it promising $X64,0iK>. In regard to this memorandum be had l**en told that the subscription book wa* Dx) bulky to bring to Washington. Not a dollar of subacription had bern shown, nor a single security offered. Mr. Ixiwler—Is it not a fact that gentlemen of standing had come before the committee an I -at i st iud a majority of the committee that everything wa* all right? Mr Bidden—The two Illinois members and the chairman had had nome gentlemen before them, but the general committee had not. Mr. Ta (h r—Did you meet Mr Gaines Mr. Ii. ideo—I did not Mr d t..    [ he gentleman wa* absent from th city ten days. Mr ii.- leu -He did not go to any other member except the three I have mentioned. Mr. Lawler inquired whether Mr. Be Ideo, from h * knowledg! of Chicago busine** men, had any d* abt that the' would carry out the pn>imsc* th *y had made in order to guarantee stave *. Mr. Bolden—I b*liev*j that if talk would do it. tiiej will do it, tut when money is rt« quired they do not put it up. [laughter ] Mr. Selden pnxveded to argue that before the bill passed, Chicago should be cotiqsdled to show Home guarantee that the nu Inscription* could Im* raised. He claimed that he w as a bett.-r friend to a successful fair, by insisting on provisions to secure it, than the men who stood in the hpuae and said: “We w ill fix it up by and by," and he gave notice that at the proper time he would move to re-cominit the bill with instructions to report it l*ack when a guarantee of $10,000,OOI) shall be secured by the < iti.cn* of Chicago. Mr. Candler'* amendment (»ostinning the time for bolling the lair until IH03 was adopt-cd without division. Mr. Hubert of A la I atma sjxike in opposition to holding the fair Mr. Carlisle offered an amendment, which was adopted, providing that the government buildings tie built of such material that they could iw taken out android at the chine of the exposition. Mr. Cumming* of New York said some month* ago he Rpjiealed in the house for fair play towards New York, and now be ap-t**alod to the house for fair play toward Chicago. New York had fair play in the bulse, but h st the fair through treachery in her own rank*. There wa* a Benedict Arnold in New York. More than that, there wa* no jockey of Norfolk to receive a warning before her natural geographical allies of New selection of a site respectively favored Wash ington and St. Louis, expressed hope for a luccessfu] fair in Chicago. Mr. Selden offered hi* motion to recoin rnit, but it w as defeated without a division. The bill wa* then passed- yea*. 202; nay*, 42. The bouse then, after an unsuccessful effort to go ;nto committee of the whole on the Wyoming admmuou bill, at 5:45 p rn. adjourned.    *_ IN TH K SENATE. Washington, March 26 —The senate yesterday further debated the Sherman antitrust bill and i<aseed the bill providing for a special investigation of the sealing industry of Alaska The bill authorizing the investigation of the condition of the seal industry was deleted at some length liefore it wa* agreed to, several senator* holding that in the interest of economy it should not be {tossed Resolution* were passed calling on the president for correajxmdenoe in regard to the la Abr* award, and on the secretary of the interior for information as to land (latents issued to indians under the severally laws. Mr. Ingalls’ amendment aiming at dealings in future* and options wa* agreed to. Mr. Coke then offered hi* amendment contacting of eight new sections to the bill, and made a tqleech in support of it. He argued that the bill* of Mr. Sherman and Mr. Reagan were unconstitutional and vague — “wasp* without a sting." Mr Reagan'* Amendment makes it unlawful to create or carry out any restrictions in trade; to limit production or to increase or reduce the price of merchandise or coinmodi-tlea; to prevent competition in merchandise, produce or commodities; to fix a standard or figure whereby the price of any article or commodity, men handi*e or produce intend-•ii    for sale, use or consumption shall be    in any way    controlled; to create a monopoly in the manufacture, sale or transportation of any such article; or to enter into any obligation by which they shall bind other* or themselves not to manufacture, sell or transport any such article lielow a common standard figure; or by which they shall agree to keep such article for tran*portation at a fixed or graduated figure; or by which Cvey shall settle the price of such article so a* to preclude an unrestricted production. Mr. Coke moved to strike out all of the bill except the amendment of Mr Ingalls or his own Tabled -yeas, 26; nays, 16.

Washington, March 26 —The sjHitker laid liefore the house a letter from the secretary of war replying to a resolution of the house requesting the secretaries of war aud interior to inform that laxly what saving of public expenditure, if any, could be made by transferring the bureau of penxious to the war department. Iii reply the secretary says that under the pr»**ent system the claims of soldiers for pension* art* not adjudicate** in the department under which they served or were disabled, and where the record* of their services and disabilities are held.

The proposed transfer, be *ay#, might not remove the necessity for substantially the present organization, but it would bring together as closely a* possible the experts who decide ufxui the claim and the rei'ord* u|x>n which principally it i* sustained or rejected. The caving of public expenditure, he says, would consist, first in the saving of such work a* by the present system is n<<ceaaarily duplicated, aud secondly, such saving ss may come from improved organization made pos-rible by the entire work being put under one control and jiermitting thereby the moot direct method of dealing with public business. The extent of such saving, he Kays, be ♦ annot estimate. With re*|**ot to tile first he says it could be approximately determined upon investigation, but with respect to the latter, although its (mssihilitic* are plain, the actual result s would depend upon the wisdom with which, under a consolidation, the work wa* organized and the vigor with which it was pushed.
