After a Long and Bitter Struggle Congress Finally Passes the Resolutions Which Can Result in Nothing Less Than a Bloody Conflict. WASHINGTON, April a. long I bitter struggle in congress over the joint resolu- tion for the recognition of the independence of Cuba, reached its last stage this morning and was passed by both houses late this morning almost in the form in which it was reported from the committee on eign relations in the senate. House Proceedings In Brief. WASHINGTON', April brief the proceedings in the hoase today are as follows: The house convened at 10 o'clock in continuance of Saturday's session. A study of the rules had developed the fact that a message could be received when the one or the other was not in session, and in view of this fact an ad- journment was taken until noon. When the honse met at noon there- port of the action of the senate on the Cuban resolutions was laid before it. Beading of recognition and independ- ence clauses was greeted with applause by the Democratic side. Biugley moved concurrence with an amendment striking out recognition clause, which carried 178 ayes; 156 nays. The resolutions were sent back to sen- ate and at 3 :30 o'clock house was in- formed that senate refused to concur in the amendment and ako refused a con- j ference. BromweU, (0.) moved that house re- cede from its amendment. This was lost, 348 ayes 172 iiayes. On motion of Dingley it was agreed to insist on amendments and ask for a com- mittee of conference. Messrs. Adams, (R., Hcatwold, and Diusinore, (D., were apiwinted house conferees When word was re- ceived that senate agreed to conference house took recess till 8 o'clock. After convening at 8 o'clock, house waited till to learn action of senate in conference report. When that was received, Mr. Adauis reported to hoxtse MAYOR ZIMMERMAN'S MESSAGE.

At message from house request- ing conference was received and agreed to without objection. Motion for vice president to appoint conferees met with long and bitter debate but finally pre- vailed and Senators Davis Foraker and Morgan appointed. At 6 :30 senate took recess till 8 o'clock. When senate assembled Mr. Davis re- ported that conferees were unable to agree. After some debate motion by Mr. j Cockerill (D., Mo.) that senate still in- sist on its action was agreed to. Motion j by Mr. Davis to ask a further eonfer- I enee Yeas, 39 nays, 40. Senate then took recess for an hour. After icoess a call of the senate showed 77 members present. Galleries crowded and excitement ran high. At message from house received insisting on its amendment and asking further conference. Motion by Mr. Davis to accede to the request agreed to, but motion by Mr. Allen to have confer- ees appointed by chair was yeas, 28; mays, 49. Presiding officer, Mr. Frye, announced same three sen- Morgan and Foraker. At further recess taken till mid- night. Vice president then took his place, but while waiting recess infor- mally continued until a m., when senate conferees came into chamber. Mr. Davis submitted the report and moved adoption. Report was read, showing that the house receded from its amendment PS to the words "are and" and that the senate receded from its dis- agreement as to the Turpie amendment. Motion was adopted by a vote of 42 to 35. When the vote was announced there was some slight demonstration of ap- plause. The relief from the long pressure was quite evident as the crowds began to dis- perse and at the Water bonds Street paving bonds Sewer Maiket House bonds Building bonds opening bonds Uelif nil Refunding bonds Wharves :md lauding bonds Total HOW outstanding Of the bonds above specified, the water works, market house and wharves aud landings amounting to were authorized by a vote of the electors of corporation. I The increase in the bonded indebted- ness during the last foui yea.ts is largely due to the issuing of street paving bonds. The taxable valuation of real and per- sonal property of the city is about so that our bonded indebted- ness is nearly 931-100 per cent of the assessed valuation. During the coming year bonds to the amount of a'- n with caution, as I tMnk t here are better materials for paving than brick. I would rt commend in case Wayne .street is use of some other material. I also recommend that paving be deferred for a time to give the people a little breathing spell and also to some extent replenish the paving fund. The streets that are already paved are as a rule in a filthy condition. I will recommend the sweeping of these streets in the business portion every night and the outside streets three times each week. I would recommend that the street committee of the council in connection with the street commissioner make a di- vision of this work, and that some of onr unemployed labor be set to work with brooms sweeping the paved streets, which in my judgment would cost but a few dollars more, but would give more universal satisfaction. The letting of contracts for the streets ougiitfcfbe dated April 1st instead of May 1st, as the people suffer more during the month of April than poor ing in this round.

I. therefore, recommend the extension of the receiving pipe nearer to what is called the east channel. This will take it further from the shore of the main laud and further from the sewerage of the city. My plan is to do some cribbing and form a basin for the settling of the water before it reaches the receiving pipe. tioii as agreed upon roads as follows: "Joint resolution for the recognition of the independence of the people of Cuba, demanding that the government of Spain relinquish its authority and government in the island of Cuba, and to withdraw its land and naval forces from Cuba and Cuban waters, and directing the president of the United States to use the laud and naval forces of the United States to carry these reso- lutions into effect.

IX CON'CLCSIOX. In conclusion I will say that I wish you all success in your deliberations as servants of the people the coming year. Upon your act? and doings depends largely the financial standing of our city and taxpiyers. Low taxation is the most commenda- ble thing for your administration, which can only be brought alviut through your level headed, sound judgment, aud ex- penditures of moneys made only when absolutely necessary.
