WASHINGTON, Jan. the Sea ate yesterday, after the introduction and ense of several bills and resolutions. Mr. Mor- gan, of Alabama, at great length on bill of Senator Uatler to provide for the emigra- tion of colored people from the Southern Slates. He expressed himself in favor of voluntary em- igration of the colored people from the South, having reached the conclusion That there was a natural incongruity and an irrepressible con flic; Vetween races which nothing could curt their flnal separation. The return of negro to Africa was the final and only solution of the problem. It w as undeniable that between the races had greatly in creased since the abolition of slavery, and it would increase so long as a large proportion of the population was of the African race. Mr. Morgan maintained that Central Afrrra seemed destined for the future conquest of civ- ilization, and cotnnlimented the ptforts of the King of Belgium in That direction. When Mr. Morgan concluded his speech the Senate went, into secret session and afier adjourned. Speaker stated that in accord- ance with authority vestediu him he had ad- ministered the oath of office to Samuel J. Ran- cfcill, of Pennsylvania Several bills .md resolutions were introduced and referred, wtien Mr. Mi-Comas moved that the House go 'into Committfe of the Whole da the District of Columbia Appropriation bill, the committee to proceed under thu rules of tha last House. Mr. Breckenridg- of Kentucky, raised the question of consideration, which the Speaker decided was out of ordui, because the resolution was in the iriture or a motion regulating the business of the House -Mr. IJrcckeundge ap- pealed from the UooiMon and yielded the floor to Mr. Carlisle, who the Speaker's ruling. He severely criticised the Uousc for its failure to adopt Mr. McKmley xiid the Committee on would report a code of rules within a reasonable time, and the oulj question was whether, while awaiting that report, public business was to be suspended. The discussion w.is continued by Butterworth, of Oino: Heard, ot Missouri; Me- Adoo, of Xew Jersey: Cbipmaa of Michigan, and others the stand takjn by each being en- tirely partisan.

A Legal Opinion Declares That the I'enn- ftylTanhi ICave !Xo Sliow for Re- sisting Eviction. PuxxsuT.vn-STET, Pa., Jan. pe- tition of the employes of the Buffalo, Rochester Pittsburgh Coal Company at and Adrian, asking- for arule to show the cause why the evictions should not be stayed, was refused by Judge Wilson at Brookville yesterday. "When a miner signs one of these said the judge, "he practically verifies the language of the good old hymn: 'Here, Lord, I give myself away, 'tis all I can do.' If the evictions do not take place it will not be because the law does not warrant them. The genf'sl opinion is that they- will not be delayed much longer and will likely begin to-day. Robert AVatschorn, of the National Ex- ecutive Board of the Knights of Labor, yesterday asked for an interview with Superintendent Haskeil. Tlaskell re- plied that he would meet him socially and talk to him as an individual, but not as the representative of any organ- ization. The miners held a mass meet- ing last night and discussed the situa- tion. ______________ PASSED TO A HIGHER COURT Mrs- Southwortli, the Jlurderess, Dies in the Tombs Prison. NEW Yor.K, Jan.

ON Eihaustlve Argrutneuts by Farm- ers and Manufacturers, La Favor of an Increase of the Tariff 011 the Impoi-ted Article. Presented Showing the Growth of the Trade In the Internal Revenue Tax. WASHINGTON, Jan. A. Schroe- der, of Xew York, opened yesterday's session before the Ways and Means of the House with an address on tobacco. He advocated a duty of thirty-five cents per pound oa leaf tobacco an 1 strongly opposed any in- crease of the duty on wrapper and filler tobacco. If an increase in the duty of filler and wrapper tobacco was made, the manufacturer would have to reduce the quality and cost of the filler and wrapper and also make a reduction in tbe wages of the cigarmaker. He read statistics showing the amount of tobacco raised in this country, the amount im- ported and exported, and gave the prices for a number of years. The increased importation, he said, had not affected the price of raised in this country. The home pro- duction also had the ex- ception of one or two this was due to the failure of the crop and was in no way affected by the importa- tion. Mr. Schroeder went on to discuss the faults of the pressnt law, claiming that it places the importer at the mercy of the Government inspectors, who classify the tobacco in any manner they please. He favored the imposition of a special duty on imported tobacco for the reason that it was impossible for inspec- tors to tell the difference between the different kinds without resort to special treatment. J. S. Vandusen, of Elmira, N. Y., ato- bacco farmer, spoke in behalf of the to- bacco raisers, and said it had come to ba a question.whether the tobacco growing industry in this country shall be wiped out or not. The farmers of to-day were falling behind and were obliged to find relief in producing specialties. Mr. S. Wise, of the Cigarmakers' As- sociation of New York, argued in favor of retaining the internal revenue tax. This, he said, was a great protection to the cigar manufacturer, as it prevented fraud by filling the empty boxes. George H. Hopkins, of Detroit, argued in favor of reducing the tax to per pound and the repeal of the other features of the internal revenue law re- lating to tobacco. Robert Stewart, secretary of the Bal- timore Tobacco Board of Trade, said the large tobacco manufacturers thought their reputation was sufficient protec- tion. KILLED THEIR LANDLORD.

WIM on Fvrryboat IB Dela- KITorU of I'Msoucen to eape froun Frightened PHILADELPHI.V, Jan. panic was created among the passengers on the Camden ferry-boat Columbia Monday evening while the vessel was midway in the Delaware river by a band of steers attacking a fine team of horses attached in which Mrs. Beulah Can- field, Miss Gertrude Browning and Miss Wrifrht were seated. The team became unmanageable and made a wild dash to escape from their tormentors. A large number of passengers were standing near the railing in the front of the boat as the infuriated animals dashed for- ward. Men, women and children tum- bled over one another in their efforts to escape from the path of the team, which dashed through the iron railings and plunged overboard and were drowned. Several people were severely bruised. The'ladies in the carriage saved their by jumping out before it went overboard. The team and carriage was valued at During the uproar the steers that started the trouble rushed into the ladies' cabin and caused some of the ladies to faint, although none of them were injured. AGAINST THE TRUST. Suit Against the Standard Oil Combine Decided In Favor of an Independent Re- finer. NEW YonK, Jan. suit of George Eice against the Standard Oil Trust, to compel the trustees to transfer to him five of the trust's certificates which he bought in the open market, and to al- low him to such knowledge of the trust's affairs as a shareholder is en- titled to, was decided by Judge O'Brien in the Supreme Court yesterday. The court orders that the shares be transferred to Rice on the trust's and that he be paid the dividends there- on. The court holds that it can not makejany order in the present action to compel the trust to give Mr. Rice the in- formation sought, but there is' no doubt that as a shareholder he will be entitled to it. The defense was that Rice's ob- ject in acquiring the stock was to harass and impede the trust, as he was doing by various suits at law. Judge O'Brien holds otherwise, and says the suits were apparently justified by discriminations against Rice. WELL BE A Complete Destruction of the City Hall.

LONDON, Jan. 8, The burning of St. Michael's church at Aix-la-Chapelle, so. closely succeeding the destruction of the Belgian monarch's summer palaco at Laeken, has caused great in Belgium and Germany. Both fires were undoubtedly of incendiary and the rulers of the two countries ara- now aw are that they are involved in ft deadly conflict with a foe by whom every means of injury or terrorizing will be adopted. The striking miners ot Belgium and the persecuted of Germany have in their misery means of making themselves feared, though open revolt is denied them, and it remains to be seen whether the nat- ural cunning of the proletariat will not be too much for the trained acuteness. of the government spies. An English Cabinet officer is credited. with the remark that palaces and. churches will henceforth be very bad, property to insure, and there is a dread among connoiseurs lest the priceless objects of art in such places be lost to- the world through the torch of the in- cendiary. Travelers on the continent of late years have almost universally re- marked the sullen and discontented air of the poorer classes.and the conservative element in Europe has not lost the op- portunity to attribute it to the injurious- education of the masses, which has de- stroyed the veneration they formerly- felt for their superiors and rendered! them averse to remaining longer tools of the masters whom they have learned to hate.
