appropriating for marking the boundary line be tween the United States and Mexico and called attention to its urgency A resolution offered by Sherman fixing the daily hour of meeting at 10 a m was taken up Cockrell salt that he would support tho resolution and wanted to give a few reasons why Some taunts had been made recently by the Senators of Rhode Island and Maine Aldrich and Prye about the delay on the part of the Democratic minority Ho wanted those Senators to see the relative amount of work done in the two Houses The Senate had up to tho 23th of July passed bills and 100 other bills had been acted upon by committees and been indefinitely postponed making the whole number of Senate bills actually disposed of 1445 That was considerably more than onethird of all the bills introduced in tbo Senate No such record had ever been made before Tho House out of over bills introduced there passed a more fraction of the whole Out of all the Senate bills passed the House had only passed 231 while of the House bills the Senate had passed tilS How he asked had so much work been done in the Senate Had the minority been wasting time by interposing objections or by unnecessary discussion Had the minority consumed this time as the majority had done under the last ad ministration in criticising the Executive or pleading the civil service law to prevent the removal of Democratic officials before tho end of their terms of office Nothing of the kind Had notthe bills for the admission of Idaho and Wyoming as States been allowed by the minority to pass although everyone knew that neither one of them had sullicient population to entitle it to in tho House Those bills were passed only through the inconceivable forbearance of the Democratic minority and yet the Democrats were criticised the moment they wanted a little explanation and a little light on theTarill bill If there wore a Democratic majority in the Senate ic made au attempt to pass bills of New Mexico and Ari zona as States tho Senator from Maine Frye would havo prancedup the center aisle and the Senator from Ver would have raised his voice They would have roared like caged lions and screamed like chained hyenas laughter againstthe action of tho Demo cratic majority Why he asked had not the House dis posed of more bills than it had disposed of The reason was that It ignored in its organ ization and its rules tbo funda mentalprinciples of parliamentary discus sion Hequoted from a letter written by Tliomas Bi Roed in June and pub lished in Chautanqna It would be re njouiherecl he said that Reed was once a the House

The TarilV bill was taken up and Morrill addressed the Senate Morrill Vermont said the denunciation of American manufacturers by the oratori cal free traders indicated that they pre ferred the prosperity ol the foreign manu facturer to that of their own that they would compel tho latter to manu facture as cheaply as the foreigner pay no higher wages orabandon their business Tho real purpose was finally to break down and degrade the of wages of American workmen Coming to the ques tion of agricultural depression Morrill said there was a glutof misinformation dissimul ated on that subject and a concealment of the fact that the prices products are depressed throughout world Tho only passible remedy within reach of the Ameri can farmer is positive practection against foreign competition and such encouragement to other avocations as would increase tho consumers of their He asserted than in 1SSS had it not been for a duty of 20 cents a bushel on the wheat of India it would have snatched tho market of New York from the State of Wisconsin as well as from all other Western States Tho farm mortgage indebtedness bad beengrossly ex aggerated and he understood the census re ports would the farnrmortgages in Kansas and Maine were less than one quarter of the amount which had been rep resented The charge that the American farmers were hugely in debt or more so than the farmers of any other country was a gross calumny Markets which could not be found abroad had to be made at home and they could only be madeby protection Referring to the countries of Central and South America Morrill said of agricultural products cattle sheep and horses they had an abundant and cheap supply not only for also for exportation To carry any of these products there in the hope of finding a market would be like carrying coals to questionof sugar Morrill adding of free sugar to the breakfasttable presented a stronger case than cof fee presented in 1S72 for like by a bounty the United States could as had been done bv several European coun tries supply alf its own sugar would be at home that is now sent to Cuba and elsewhere never to return sion Morrill said that any amendment of fered in good faith that would improve the bill would be cordially received but all at tempts to engraft them upon it would he hoped be 1 At the close of Merrills speech the con sideration of the bill was The amendment offered by McPherson was McPherson continued to offer amendments reduction of rates on articles in th6 chemical schedule but they were all merci lessly Rejected byparty vote The only
