liawley from the Committee on Military Affairs reported and askoct to have put upon passage a joint resolution authorising the Socrutary of War to issue arms and ani nnmUion to the States of North and iManderson moved to include tho State of Nebraska Vuorheos said IT tho proposition were one U issue a hundred thousand rations of food to tho starving Indians it would bo moro consistent with Christian He ruforrud to the statement of General Miles In a published interview that the Indians wenjrlrlVHn to revolt by starvation and said it was a crime on tho part of the Gov ernment to stand by and do nothing except to furnish arms to tho whites The Indians had been suffering for years in silence There was blood guiltiness somowhere in cotiiiGCtkm with it The hostilities into whioh tho Indiana in tho Northwest aro 1x3 Ing starved would rssult not merely in the destruction of the lives of many Indians but tho lives of thousands of American citi zens ami hundreds of American soldiers That condition of things had boon brought about by a niggardly parsimonious or dis honest knew not which A policy had boon pursued to take the lands of the Indians and not pHy enough for them to keep the Indians from starving when dis possessed of their homos Hawley spoke briefly saying that he had no objection to tho remarks of the Senator from Indiana except that they wero per haps a little exaggerated Dawes chairman of tho Committee on Indian AITairs very much doubted if short iioss of food was of the trouble or that a supply of food would be a euro for it Tho difficulty with tho Indian service all along been the constant change of policy Heretofore for years it had been impressed upon Congress that the best way to treat tho Indian waa to starve him into self support Hoot hog or had been tho phrase put over the door of those who administered tho affairs of the Indians and the policy had boon to cub down year by year tho rations raquirod by the treaties and give notice to tho Indians that the noxt year they wero only to have so much the difference to bo sup plied by the labor of their own hands He thought it well to hold out every Inducement to the Indians to turn from cloperideuce on theGovernment rations and supply their own support and that it was well to resort to all devices within tho limits of justice and reason to induce them to do It As to tho suggestion in tho public press that tho Government had failed to keep the promises mado to the Indians by the Sioux Commission ho said tho Com mission had mado all sorts of stipulations with tho Indians one of them written out in plain language and enacted into a law by Congress and that stipulation the Commis sion had taken out to tho Indians and asked them to aroopt it Tho Indians had hud of complaint because ot tho nonful fillment of other agreements and the Com mission tolcl thorn it had no authority as to those matters but that It would use its in fluence with the Government in the case When tho Indian representatives came to Washington with the Commission a full dis cussion was had and tbo agreement was em bodied in u bill which was submitted to Congress by the The thus framed to the complete satisfaction of the Indians passed tho Senate but where it was now lie did not know Ho know however thai tho skirts of tho Executive arid of the Senate wero clear of any attempt to depart one ioU from the assurances given to the Indians by the Commission Ho Dawes saw the Indian troubles with a full apprehension of the danger and of the necessity of some present relief to bring around composure among the Indianr and extricate thorn from the lead of such bad Indians as Sitting Bull and Kcd Cloud who wero tho bane and curse of the tribes Voorhues repelled a feeble attempt at a on tho part of and said the latter know tho situation just as well as be did for General Miles had told the public that tho Indians hud been made hostile and preferred to riio fighting than to die of These red men could enter tho field with 0000 lighting men well armed and with cho advantage of a knowledge of the country ooulcl light 0000 of tho best American troops on terms equality He asked tho Senator from Massachusetts to state whether these Indians had enough to eat whether Miles was right or wrong and whether the Indians weroboing starved iuto belligerauey Dawes said the groat difficulty in dealing with those 6000 Indians who are rebellious is that they have nothing to eat They are away from their tepees They belong to that olass of Indians who never did a days work In their lives Fierce N said he hnd sometimes wondered that the white people In that re gion did not themselves go on the warpath because they were hungry The Indians seemed to get noblo as wellas hungry the further people got away from them He Pierce lived within a few miles of tho great Sioux reservation Ho had been there for the last two months and this was the tirst time hohud hoard it asserted that tho Indian was on tho warpath because ho was hungry Lie saw Indians everyday in the town where he lived andthoy were sleeker and better fed the Sen ator from Indiana Lie had no doubt but that in some of tho agencies there aro Indians who complain of insulGoieut food but ho questioned very much whether General Miles made the state ment attributed to him in the newspapers Tho trouble with the Indians is that they aro fed aud clothed and allowed to live on the bounty of the Government and teh clovil still for idle hands to Voorhoes said he would take the statement of General Miles fair sooner than that of a Senator who lived noar tho reservation and who with tho people wanted to get tho Indian lands as soon as possible One was a reliable oflicer the other was the fox lying around the pen whore the geese were waiting to get sowo of them The discussion had not closed when at 3 oclock the VicePresident laid before the Senate as unfinished business the Elections bill Tiirplotook the opposition Tho substitute measure ho rested for its support oriwhat colored Kopublloanvoto in the South In the course of his remarks be said Northern all this outcry is made tho had chance of preferment than the Roman Catholic had In New hundred years ago Tho suppressionor the colored vote in the South a thing manifestly iu question on one side denied on tho other but the suppression of the colored voter of tho North was a thing without quest ion actual absolute unconditional The supremacy of the white race was not pecu liar to any portion of the United States South Carolina was not more completely under its sway than Pennsylvania Tho man especially the man of the White Houso who sought to embroil the white man aud the black race for purposes he could not conceal and dare not avow was guilty of an outrage tenfold greater than any of those ho invented or described Whenever the people of tho different races were living peacefully together under the same laws members of the same body politic without any other thought than that some must command and others obey the nice problem was being solved The purpose of the National Election bill was so far as it related to the South to wreck and destroy this pending condition intorracial adjustment It proposed not to maintain the will of tho majority but to overthrow on a single issue cf race to make a majority of the black men because they are black to establish a government of com not of opinion Tho purpose of tho bill was that tho law of tho land must bo suborned to set enmity between the white man and tho black man Pass thisbill and the right of the people to choose their rep resentatives that right so precious priceless to every lover of liberty was lost beyond recovery At the conclusion of his speech Turpio received the congratulations of cratic colleagues and the Senate adjourned House WASTTINGTON Doc th e House the Speaker stated the pending business was further consideration of the Copyright bill After arguments against tho hill by Springer Paters and Korr and in its favor by Breck inricige Karquhar McAdoo mings and Butterworth Peters moved to recommit with instructions to the commit tee to report it back with an amendment limiting tho act of copyright to fourteen years Breckinridgo moved to amend the instructions by instructing the committee to provide for the importation of the books of foreign authors at tho ratenow provided by law Both amendments were lost LJThc question then recurred on the pnssago of the bill and the roll call Veas 110 nays The Houso then adjourned AN IRISH COMPROMISE

consider the Parnell leadership reassembled at 2 oclock this afternoon Daring the proceedings Parnell announced that the of the Hoiiso of Commons had granted the Irish members the use of fcue committee room until 7 oclock Healy disputed that officials right to de termine the length ofde liber ations and re quested that ho be notified to that effect Parnell declared the proposed message im pertinent Objection wasraised to telegrams from In dividuals being roceivod during the proceed ings During the discussion a telegram per sonal to Parnell was rend Sexton said he would persist to the ond iu bis opposition to Paruoll despite the ruf fianly attacks made upon him A dispatch from Jloumel was read declar ing that the tenants on the SmithBarry estates wero with Dillon and OBrien in op position to Parnell A telegram from the Belfast branch of the National League read It declared that tho members would have no leader but Parnell Sexton who represents the Western Divi sion of Belfast said if the opinion of the Belfast Nationalists was contrary to his he would retjlgn Clancy said ho had a proposal to make which ho hoped would induce a solution of the dilMculty A conversation ensued which resulted iu an adjournment until to morrow when it is expected a compromise will be arranged which will lead to entirely new developments Clancys motion Involves the temporary retirement of Parnell subject to certain conditions being exacted from Gladstone in connection with his promised homo rule scheme Clancys proposal has raised a hope among the Nationalists that a unani mous settlement will be effected Liberal circles however do not share the hope the attitude and front of the opposition regard ing Parnell being resolute and unyielding Par noil has decided to state explicitly whether ho will retire from the leadership but has asked a day in which to consider Clancys proposal which was cleverly de signed in Parnolls interest with the doable object of gaining time and putting Sexton fnrther wrong in tho event of tho almost certain refusal of Gladstone to the re quired pledges The News publishes a letter from Presi dent Evans of the Liverpool Reform Club who says that Parnell conversed freely with him after tho mooting at Hawarden evi dently being muoh impressed with Glad stones cordial by and more still with the thoroughness of tho Liberal leaders pro posals concerning Parnell said ho went further than proposals from any great English statesman could bo expected to go und they meant a most satisfactory solution of the Irish problem THB HlERAClCUYS MANIFESTO Dec 3 At a meeting of tbo Catholic Hierarchy at the residence of Archbishop Walsh today it was resolved to issue a manifesto declaring that the arch bishop and bishops of Ireland consider Par noil unlit to remain the the Irish party The objections to Parnell are based mainly on moral grounds but it is also tho the Hierarchy that his continu ance in the leadership would inevitably cause

the Senate but They Will Fili buster It Idaho lor Dubois OCALA Dec sensation of tho morning session of tho Farmers Alliance was when President Livingston of the Georgia Alliance arose to a question of privilege and denounced is infamously tho insinuations in certain newspa pers aimed at Dr and himself and i oven at President Polk in connection wiih recent Senatorial contest in Georgia Ho demanded the appointment of a fair and impartial committee to thoroughly investi gate the charges President Polk nnd Dr also spoke and it was decided that a committee of investigation be appointed to consist of one member from each State delegation to make a thorough and search lug investiga tion in accordance with the demand of Iho gentlemen concerned At the aftsrnoon session W G McAllister of Mississippi introduced a preamble arid resolution setting forth that the President of tho United States 3u his annual message recommends and urges tho immeduao pas sago of the Lodge Election bill that said hill involves a radical revolution in tho election machinery of tho Union and its passage will be fatal to the autonomy of tho Stato and the cherished liberties of the cit izens that said bill is partisan in spirit and will be partisan iu application thus revital izing tho hoary ghost of sectional estrange ment that in holy water the Alliance has declared against sectionalism The fire sides of tho farmers of the North East South and West are the citadels around which the heaviest battles are being fought and to the end that victory may crown the crusade and irateruity and unity reiuu bo it devolved By the National Farmers Alliance mid Industrial Union of America in nauoiiiil council assembled that we do most solninniy protest against tho passage ol said bill nnu most our Seiuitors to employ all fair and menus to defeat this unpatriotic meas ure wnich can result in noUiiug but evil to our common and beloved country McAllister made a strong speech in favor nf the resolution Delegate Doming of Pennsylvania said he regarded the introduction of tho resolution as untimely that there was largely preva lent at the North a feoling that the Farmers Alliance was a Southern organization saturated with Southern sentiments and trlmt the passage of these resolutions would strengthen opinion and cheek the growth ol tho Alliance in the North and East A delegate from Illinois expressed the same sentiment He feared the adoption of the resolution would confirm the charge that the Fanners Alliance is a partisan body The Alliance he said is getting a grip in the West and localities where the liepubli can sentiment is strong This action o the National order would tend to throw it into disrepute and stop its expansion over the States of the West and Northwest After several other speeches however McAllisters motipn to adopt tho resolutions was put and carried unanimously amid the wildest enthusiasm Resolutions were also adopted denouncing the Louisiana Lottery as a blow to Ameri can civilization and morals and asking the submission to the people of America of nn amendment to tho National Constitution prohibiting the operation ol lotteries lii any State A resolution will

WASHINGTON Dec Dispatch Francisco Chronicle is a condition and not a theory which confronts The Democratic Senators have never been more ready to adopt the maxim of their idol G rover Cleveland than they have in its applloation to the situation in the United States Senate The theory of tho Democrats has been that the Republican Senators would be so divided and demoral ized by the results of tho election that it would be impossible for them to take up the Election bill much less to think of passing it That was tlio theory of yesterday The condition of today is thai before 3 oclock on the second day of the session the Federal Election bill by tho unanimous vote of the Republican Senators has been brought up as the regular order of business iu the Sen ate that all other measures on tho calendar which under former orders hud secured a parliamentary priority have been tempo rarily laid aside until the Election bill is disposed of and that this has been done as the result of the agreement of u Republican caucus arrived at after one hours consider which there was not a single oppos ing Republican vote The Democrats were amazed at the situa tion and their demoralization was well illus trated by their efforts to overcome the ef fect of the unexpected strategic movement which the Republican Senators had made Tho Democrats were divided in their leader ship and in tho open Senate advertised the dissensions in their councils The most that they could do was to enter upon the filibus tering course permitted by the rules of de manding that the text oftbe long bills of the House and the Senate should be read That was their parlimcntary right Two hours at least ol ttroe could bo wasted by this movement during which the Democrats might hope to come to some agreement as to the means to which they could resort to pre vent the Republicans from passing the Elec Some of tbeui wished to go so far as to deny to Mr Hoar the right to take up the Election bill but Mr Harris of Ten nessee the ablest Parliamentarian on the Democratic sido insisted that Mr Hoar was in the right A FlTiIBUSTEKING PROGRAMME WASHINGTON Dec Democratic Senators caucus this afternoon decided to
