A Char artar 1st Ie Oration fro as th# lu-sas Senator—H# Soya Thoro la Nothing U nroiwt Hot tonal la His Aasandment Regard I ng the Dealings ta Futaree nod Options—Territories Aahing Admission. Waahinoton, March 27 — Meanra Hawley and Gray were appointed members of the board of visitors yesterday to attend Ute annual examination of the cadets at Weet Point. Mr McPherson, from the committee on naval affair*, reported a joint re* Jut loo authorizing the secretary of the navy to remove the naval magazine from Kilts Island in New York harbor and to purchase a site for and to erect a naval magazine At some other point uuid appropriating $75,U(J0 for the purjwise ) Mr Hiaoock moved to Amend by Appropriating a further sum of $76,000 to enable the ac*-rotary of the treasury to improve Kiln Island for immigration purjouea The amendment was agreed to, and the joint rvsoluti*ei wa* panned After the transaction of routine business, the senate proceeded to consider the antitrust bill. The amendment offered Tuesday by Mr. Stewart to insert the wonts “or of the value of money by which such coat may be advanced or reduced ' w a* agreed to Mr. Hjhtoner offered an amendment giving the court* authority to issue writs of injunction prohibiting and restraining comb!nail' Mi* from proceeding any further in the bufdneos except to win<! up its affair*. The amendment and bill were disrumed by Mewl rn Spooner, Gray, Hoar, Stewart, Vert, Reagan and Eustis Replying to certain remark* made by Mr. Reagan Tuesday, Mr. Vest declared that be would not say another word about the constitution He wa* jirepared to “join the jaro-cesBbaj." It reminded hun of the hunting I>arty that made an agreement that the flirt man w ho complained oi a dish aet before him in camp should cook tor rn week. One of them Implanted to kill an old crow and co>ked it for the meas, and every one praised it as a most delicious morsel The Farmer*’ Alliance was narking now, and no dish could be placed on the senatorial table that would not tie taken with a gusto that would delight a Parisian gourmand. He would like the senator from Ohio (Mr. Sherman) to any whether be considered the clause incorporated in the bill by Mr. Ingalls’ amendment (imposing a tax on dealing* in options) was constitutional or not. He characterised the bill as a “remarkable act of leginlative legerdemain ” It said to the persons engaged in dealing in future* and c*ptiot» that they wore a lot of criminal thieves and robber*; but that if they would jray $1,000 into the treasury they might go on robbing Mr Eustis thought that part of the bill directs against the cotton exchanges, or dealings in futures of manufactured goods, a* the grossest usurpation ever attempted in the history of the government Mr. Ingalls in defending his amendment naid it was directed against that gigantic modern invention known as “dealing* In futures," which wa* just as nefarious and disreputable as the poker table or the faro Uuik and thens was not a man in the country outside of the senate chamber who did not know exactly against anat practice it was directed. Speaking in support of the constitutionality of the amendment, and replying to the criticisms of those senators who questioned ite constitutionality, Mr. Ingalls said he could not conceive of anything more humorous or more grotesque than to have the senators from Louisiana. MisKivsipjA and Missouri, and their associates, rise with terror on every occasion aud plead tile constitution with a si*iiuluti-ai of terror, as if the minutest alienation of that sacred instrument would—like the death of Kosciusko— “rusks freedom shriek." Those gentlemen had spent a considerable portion of tune to endeavoring to destroy that constitution. What, he asked, was the secret of their new found reverence for the constitution t Had they borne It away in the ark of the covenant for four year*, and then brought it back a* its chosen guardians f And did that permit them to taunt those who endeavored to carry out the ideas of manual growth and progress without tieing violators of the constitution I It seemed to him that it would be a little more becoming for those senator* w ho were scourging them and bolding them up to public castigation, to remember D.at their view of the constitution had not l**en maintained by the people of the United State* There had been no step in national prog re** in the last thirty five year* against which the senator* from Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri (meaning Messrs Eustis, George and Vest), had not risen and declared that it was against the constitution. Mr Ingalls recollected that there was ooce a great demonstration to prove that there was no power in the constitution to coerce a state which saw fit to go out of the Union; yet the people had found it, somewhere In Its latent resources They had lieen told that the abolition of slavery wa* without warrant in the constitution, but it bad been found; and when not found in the letter it was amended by tbs sword. They had beau told there was do constitutional power to reconstruct the stales; to make jreper a legal tender; to moline specie payments, and recent, ty, when a resolution was offered In the senate to inquire into some violation of law to Muowoipfii, the whole organization had risen nj) and declared it to be a violation of the constitution. The government had a right to go to England, Germany. Austria, or Spain, w believer the lights of an American citizen had lieen violated, but it had no power under the constitution to take care of the rights of American citizens that had been assailed and overthrown in Mississippi. Mr. Ingalls commented to those construers of the constitution the contemplation of the results of their criticisms during the last thirty years, and suggested to them whether it was not barely jMissibie for them to be mistaken in invoking the constitution against Ute effort to remove the burden of the monstrous and crying evil against which the bill and amendment were aimed. Mr. Ingalls then proceeded to argue that bis amendment did not violate the constitution iii any respect, and that there was a wide difference between it and a revenue measure. He affirmed that the bill was in no cerise w balever a bdl for raising revenue, and w as therefore not obnoxious to the clause that all revenue measure* must originate in the house of reinvite!ital!va* Mr Vest, replying to Mr. Ingalls, said he was under ol*11gsDons to obey the constitution but not to Uke the construction put ujkmi it by the senator fnwn Kansas. Mr Eustis, criticising the “ option amendment,” said bo such stride in the d.motion of centralize, ha), atisohiteism and tyranny had ever before been made to regulate the private contracts on mdi\ id aal* of the Ute tea. Amendment* wore offered and adopted aa f otto WX By Mr. Butler—Extending the pro\ shoo* of the bill to stocks and bonds By Mr Eustis—To boots and shoes, lead and lumber. and by Mr. Blair, to wool— gouda and whisky and all kinds of in toxics ting drinks. Mr Cullom, while anxious to have a bill pawrl that would prohibit trusts, moved to refer the Mil and amendment* to the committee on finance Mr Sherman opposed this, but hie motion wa* rejected An amendment in the shape of a substitute for the bill, which hod been prepared by Mr George and offered by Mr Gray, wa* then voted on aud rejected Mr. Vest moved to im Tease the license for des Is re in optiona from $ I OU) to $10,000, and it was adopted. The bill, which had all the time been con ii de red in committee of the whole, was reported to the senate, but a vote on it was not reached At 0:40 p. rn. the senate went Into secret newton and a few moments later Adjourned IN THE HOUSE. Washington, March 27.—In tbs house yesterday Mr. fan non of Illinois, from the committee on rules, reported a resolution making the Wmining admission bill a special order for yesterday, « recs** to lie token at 5:J*U in the afternoon until ll o’clock to-day. the previous queetioo to be considered as ordered at I o'clock. Tbs Wyoming bill was then taken up Mr Barnes of Georgia opfxmed tbs bill because be believed that there were gross lr regularities in the adoption of the constitution of Wyoming; beearn*- he believed that the territory did not contain a population requisite for admission into the Union, and bees use there wa* incorporated to tbs constitution features based upon the subject of female suffrage which was antagonistic to Republican institution* Mr. Carr at Wyoming made a strong plea for the admission of the territory which be represented into the sisterhood of states. He contended that its constitution had been adopted by the free and fair vote of its citl-cens, and that the pustulation was sufficient to —title it to two senators and one representative in the congoes of the United B ta tee, and he defended the proposition of the constitution of the territory extending the right of Huff rag* to worn—. Mr Dockery of Missouri favored the admission of new state* a* rapidly as tbs Increase of pojHilaUou to the territories warranted. But he insisted on calling a spade a spade After the territory had been organised 14 years the vote cast in 1888 aggregated but 18,010 and ac*cording to the rejiort of the minority of tbs committee 4,000 of them had been cast by females Tbs total vote of Wyoming and Idaho was less than the vote cart in his own district. The bill was nothing more or less than a jiartisan measure, designed to perpetuate the power of the Republican party. It (like the Idaho bill, soon to follow) should be called a bill to add three electoral votes end two senators to the Re publican column in 18B2. Mr Oates of. Ala lamia said that no new state had ever come into the onion on the terms projanted iii this case- that women were to have tbs right to vote and hold office. It was a delicate question, and be looked with great apprehension upon the growing tendency toward extension of the right of franchise. Woman suffrage had ala ays been experimental, and the judgment of history was that it was not wise to entrust government to women. Representatives Dunned of Minnesota, and Washington of Tennessee opposed the bill, and Morris of Ohio supported it. Mr. Mansur of Missouri addressed himself, he said, “to tbs country, lf not to the house," (for an actual count there were not ten members In their seats) and saki that the slim attendance rem unled him of the fact that the house was bringing a state into the union by the Caeaerinian operation, rather than with the care and comfort w Inch surrounded the acoouchment of an honorable member of an honorable family. The bowse then, at 0:20 took a recess until eleven ©clock to-day. Killed by a Asta Hovsr. New York, March 27—John Atkinson, aged 44. a lawyer, was killed at hi* office, 1172 Broadway, by Felix Palmer, aged 33, foreman of a gang of safe movers who were removing a safe from the office. Atkinson had some words with Palmer, who finally struck him on the head with a heavy stake of wmd, crushing his skull. Palmer was arrested. He claims that tie acted In self-defense, as Atkinson wa* about drawing a pistol No weapon was found on Atkinson's person. Mr Bernard, w ho occupies part of the offite, says the quarrel grew out of Atkinson's refusal to have the safe taken out. Bernard went out for an officer When he returned the fatal blow had been struck A passer by who saw the affray says Palmer had no provocation for the blow. Doath of a Demented Nan. West Chester, Pa, March 27—Bister Leo, who escaped from the Villa Maria convent Tuesday and was subsequently recaptured, died yesterday of paralysis of tbs heart It appears that Bister Leo came to the convent six months ago from the parish of the Church of the Gesu. Philadelphia, and took the white veil.
