   Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1890, Salem, Ohio                               THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. VOL.ILNO.218. SALEM. OHIO, MONDAY SEPTEMBER 15. 1890. TWO CENTS. To be Allowed in Congrecs This Contested Election Will be Knshed Through but Little Ceremony. Tariff BUI to Reported to the Uooca at mn Early of Senate WASHINGTON', Sept. The Senate this week will work industriously on several bills which head the list oi measures that the Republican caucus last week decided should be acted upon promptly and before the close of the session. Tbe conference report on tho Land Grant Forfeiture bill is still un- finished busine.-sS and Is likely to bo taken up and disposed of to-day. Tbe Anti-Lottery bill, to the Re- publican caucus programme, is the next thing to be acted on and will probably cotue up on Tuesday. Tue bill for tho relief of tho Supreme Court of the United Smiles i-j on tne list, an 1 this and Uie providing for tho trans- fer of the re von uu murino to thf Navy Department, which Senator Gray hns (jivon be will call up on dar or Thursday, and the several labor bills whic-h recently passed the House are more than enough to occupy the time of the Senate during the week. The Republican leaders of thn have not only determined that the fili- bustering proceedings which wore >o successfully carried on last week whiln the majority was endeavoring to call up the Lang-uon-Venable contested case shall be carried no further, but de- termined to administer discipline to the unruly minority by pushing through the contested election case of Miller asrainst Elliott, from the Sevonth district of South Carolina, immediately after the Langston-Venable case is disposed of. The discipline consists in limiting the debate to about forty minutes, a vote to be taken immediately when the debate is closed. The Langston-Venablo case is on the programme for to-day, and the Republicans hope to have a sufficient number of members on hand to defeat any attempt on the part of tbe Demo- crats to break a quornm. The tariff bill will be reported from the Ways and Means Committee early in tho week, accompanied by an order from the Committee on Rules setting apart for debate what the committee consider reasonable time. When the time allowed for this discussion has ex- pired a vote on non-concurrence in all the Senate amendments will bo taken and the Republican votes will send tbe bill to conference. It is believed by prominent Republican members that the conference reports will be presented in both houses In lees than a week. The rest of the week In the Douse will be consumed as the Committee on Rules sees fit. Shot BUFFALO, N. Y., Sept.
