ELKCTTON LAW The programme, as arranged by Beed and his pirates, is to take up tho federal election law bill tomorrow It will be debated until Saturday, and then passed There are one hundred democrats in the house who have preafred speeches against the bill, and want to deliver them However, in the short time allow ed, probably not one-fourth of them will get time, as an equal number of republicans want to wave the ensanguined garment While the bill will pass the house, it will probably meet its doom in the senate, for the fifteen republican senators who voted for free coinage, announced that neither the tariff bill nor the federal election law shall re- ceive their votes until Eeed allows a square vote on free coinage These-senators watched the silver fight in the house with much interest, and are awaiting an opportunity retaliate on Keed for his gag- ging process to kill free coinage However, whether or not Mr Keed allows a vote on free coinage, and he will not, the chances are that tho senate will never pass the federal election law bill Ingalls and Edmunds have refused to be parties to changing the rules. The wes- tern silvei men are both against a change of rules and a federal election law bill It is pos- sible they might be whipped into line on a federal election law bill, but without a change of rules the democrats will never allow a vote Senators Butler, Gorman and Morgan have announced that they are prepared to sneak thirty days each on the bill, and that alone would carry the session to October with- out a vote Therefore unless Eeed and Lodge can persuade Vice-President Morton to change the rules and adopt Eoed's gag laws, the bill can never pass It is not beheved Morton has thB nerve to do this ______ E W B. salaries of senators from Montana, Washing- ton South Dakota began senate resumed the consideration of the agricultural college aid mil, and Mr Morrill offered a -substitute for the various amend- ments pending on Saturday, as to the division. of the fundTbetween colored and -white schools of the MH PUCK WITHDRAWS HIS Mr PuRh, who had offered the first amend- ment on tliat point, said that he had examined Mr Momll's amendment and that it covered all points that he was aiming at. He withdrew his own amendment and hoped that Mr Mor- rill's would be accepted Messrs Hale, Chan- dler andjjibson also v ithdrew their amend- ments Mr Colquitt asked Mr Mornll as to the pro- portions in which the fund was to be distrib- uted between the colored and white colleges Mr Morrill said that the proportion was not fixed That was left to the state legislature Mr Momll's pmcuatnent was adopted It provides that in any state in which there has been one agricultural college established under t the act of 18G.i, and m which also there ia or be an educational institution of a like character for colored students aided b> tl e state from its own revenue how ev er mined or styled there shall ho a 3iist and equitable divimoii of the fund to be received under this ict made by tho legislituio "5FXATOH BLAIR STIKS THFM UP Mr Blair made a remark to the effect that it was from a southern senator, Mr tha t the proposition came to gi ve the colored schools a share of the fund, and that no north ern man had thought of it Mr Hawley resented the remark, and said that the bill had contained a pio- vision that; no money shouldTbe paid where a distinction of race or color was made, but that the establishment and maintenance of sepa- rata colleges for white and colored studei ts would be in compliance with the act Mr Ingills also resented Mr Blame's re- marks He franklj confessed that the propo- sition to disburse the fund among the vvbite and colored schools could not, with propriety come from a noithem senator His instincts and his convictions were against it The ne cessitj could arise only in a southern state The senator from Alibama, therefore, had logically offered his amendment to adipt the bill to a condition of things which existed in the south and so Mr Ingalls cordially gave his assent to it HAWLEY TH4.MCS INGILLS Mr Hawley thanked Mr Ingalls for his speech For himself, he would have but one agricultural college in each state, and it w ould be for every person whom the Lord made fit to go into school That was the w iy he vould have it, but he jielded to this other propo- sition because it seemed best on the whole Some formal amendments were made to tho bill and it was then passed It appropriates annually out of anj money in the treasury, not otherwise appropriated, arising from the sale of public lands to bo pa d to each state and territory for tlie more complete endow ment and maintenance of colleges for the benefit of agricultural and median icit arts now established or which miy be hereafter established, 111 accoidaiice with an ict of congress approved Jnlj 2, 18G2, the sum of ?lj 000 for the >ear ending June JO '840 iiid an annual increase of tho amount of such appropriation thereafter for ten jeirs THERE 18 TROUBLE OVER IN MEXICO- I MOVEMENT MINST SENOR DlfiZ.
