After the ti ansaction of routine Innineas. the senate proceeded to consider anti- trust bill. Tbe amendment offered Tuesday by Mr. Stewart to Insert the words "or of tbe value of money by whic h such cost may be ad- vanced or reduced' agreed to Mr Bpooner offered an amendment giving the courts authority to issue writs of Injunc- tion prohibiting and restraining combina- tions f i om proceeding any further in business except to wind up Ite affairs. rhe amendment and bill were discussed by Messrs Spooner, Gray, Hoar, Stewart, Vest, Iteagan and Bustls Replying to certain remarks by Mr Reagan Tuesday, Mr. Vest declared that would not say another word about the con- stitution He was prepared to "join pro- cesslou It reminded him of the hunting party that made an agreement tbat first man who complained of a dish set before him in camp should cook for a week of them happened to kill an old crow and cooked it for the mess, and every praised It aa a most delicious morsel Tbe Alliance was cooking now, and no dish could be placed on tbe senatorial table that would not be taken with a gusto that would delight a Parisian gourmand. He would like senator from Ohio (Mr Sherman) to say whether he considered the clause incorpor- ate.! in the bill by Mr Ingalls' amendment (imposing a tax on dealings in options) wai constitutional or not. He characterixed the bill as a "remarkable act of legislative leger- demain It said to the persons engaged in dealing in futures and options that they a lot of criminal thieves and robbers, but that if tbey would pay into treas- ury they might go on robbing Mr Eustis thought tbat part of the bill directed against the cotton exchanges, or dealing; In futures of mamuactured goods, as tbe grossest usurpation ever attempted In the history of the government Mr IngalU in defending his amendment said it was directed against that gigantic modern invention known as "dealings in futures which was just nefarious and disreputable as tbe poker table or faro tank and there waa not a man in the country outside of the senate chamber who did not know exactly against wnat practice it directed Speaking in support of the con- stitutionality of the amendment, and reply, ing to the criticisms of those who questioned constitutionality, Mr. Ingalls Bald be could not conceive of anything humorous or more grotesque than to have the senators from Louisiana, Mississippi and Missouri, and their rise with ter- roi on every occasion and plead the constitu- tion with a simulation of terror, as if tba minutest aberi ation of that sacred Instru- ment death of make freedom shriek Those gentlemen had spent a considerable xirtlon of time in endeavoring to destroy hat constitution What, he asked, waa tbe secret of their new found for the constitution f Had they borne it away in the ark of the covenant for four yean, and then u-ought It back as chosen I And lid that permit them to taunt those who eavored to carry out of manual rowtli and progress without being violators f tbe constitution It seemed to him that t would be a little more becoming for those lators who were scourging I hem and hold- ng them up to public castigabion, to remem- ber that their view of the constitution had not been maintained by the people of the United States. There bad been no step in lational progress in the last thirty five yean against which the senators from Louisiana, ffissjaslppl and Missouri (meaning M !ustis, George and had not risen and declared that it waa against tbe constitution. Mr Ingalls recollected that there was great demonstration to prove tbat there was no power in tbe constitution to coerce a state which saw at to go out of Union et the people had found it, some when in atent resources They had been told thai he abolition of slavery was without warrant n the constitution, but it had been found >nd whJn not found In the letter It waa amended by tbe sword They had been tolc was no constitutional power to raoon- truct tbe states to make paper a legal ten- ler, to resume specie and recent- y, when a resolution was offered in senate to inquire into some violation of law n Mississippi, the whole organization hat up and declared it to be a violation 01 he constitution Tbe government had right to go to England, Germany, Austria, Spain, wherever the of an Amerr- can citizen had been violated, but it bad no power under the constitution to take care a .be rights of American citizens that bad been assailed and overthrown in Mississippi Mr Ingalls commended to those construers of the constitution the contemplation of tbe of their criticisms during thirty years, and suggested to them whether it was not barely possible for them to be mistaken in invoking the constitution agaii ;he effort to remove the burden of tbe mon- strous and crying evil against which the oil and amendment were aimed Mi Ingalls then proceeded to argue tba his amendment did not violate tbe oonsUtu tion in any respect, and that there ide difference between it and a measure.

WASHINOTOM, March 27 In th. house etterday Mr Cannon of Illinois, from tbe committee on rules, reported a resolution iking tbe Wyoming admission bill a special rder for yesterday, a recess to be taken at Win tbe afternoon until 11 o'clock to-day, be previous question to be considered as ordered at 1 o'clock. The Wyoming bill was then taken up Mr Barnes of Georgia opnomd the bill be- cause be believed tbat there were gross ir regularities in tbe adoption of the constltu- lon of Wyoming, because he believed that the territory did not contain a population requisite for admission into the Union, and lose there wu Incorporated in con- stitution features based upon the subject of suffrage which was antagonistic to tepubllcan institutions. Mr Carr of Wyoming made a strong plea or admission of the territory which he represented into the sisterbood of states He contended that Its constitution bad been dopted by the and fair vote of ite dtl- tens, and that the population was sufficient to entitle it to two wnaton and one repre- sentative in tbe congress of the United States, and be defended tbe proposition of he constitution of the territory extending tbe right of suffrage to women. Mr Dockery of Missouri favored ad- mission of new states aa rapidly u the In- rease of population in the territories war- ranted. But be insisted on calling a spade a After the territory had been organ- led 14 yean tbe vote cast hi 1888 aggregated bat and according to the report of the minority of the committee of them had wen cast by females. Tbe total vote of Wyoming and Idaho wu lew than the vote cast in his own district. Tbe bill was noth- ng more or less than a partisan measure, de- signed to perpetuate tbe power of the Repub- lican party It (like the Idaho bill, soon to oltow) should be called a bill to add three electoral and two senators to the Re- publican column in Mr Oates of .Alabama said tbat no new state had ever come into the union on the terms proposed in this women were to have tbe right to vote and hold office. t was a delicate question, and he looked with 7-eat apprehension upon the growing ten- lency toward extension of the right of fran- chise Woman suffrage had ays been ex- wrimental, and the judgment of history was bat it was not wise to entrust government to women. Representatives Dunnell of Minnesota, and Washington of TenneasM opposed the bill, and Morris of Ohio supported it Mr Maniur of Missouri addressed himself, said, "to country, If not to the for an actual count there were not ten wrs in their seats) and said that the slim at- reminded him of tbe fact that the louse wu bringing a state into tbe union by he Caeserinian operation, rather than with tbe care and comfort which surrounded the accourhment of an honorable member of an lonorable family The hoiiHi. then, at 0.20 took a recess until eleven o clock to-day.
