W ASHiXGTON, July 9.—Representative Bolden, chairman of the republican collun ssional committee, has issued an address to tho republican editors of the country on the subject of the national election law. The republican party, he says, pledged the country in its platform it would see to    lh*- ex ecution of that provision of the constitution which guarantee every lawful voter in federal elections the right to deposit a ballot and have it counted for the candidate of his choice. No question of negro supremacy, no usurpation of federal power is involved. The bill which recently passed the house deals only with the national elections. The states are properly left to workout their own distinction through their own agencies. Why then should not the bill become a law? The house, faithful and active in its fulfillment of party pledges, zealous in the performance of a great public trust and undaunted by the diabolical threats and assaults of the democratic party, promptly performed ii* duty by passing th*- bill. Now it only remains for the republican majority in the senate to emulate the house and permit the president by his signature to ratify and register the will of the nation. Will the senate promptly perform this imperative obligation? The committee is in possession of information showing a concentrated effort on the part of the democratic party to chang*1 the trend of the public thought: by poisoning the minds of Unpeople to the end that a sentiment may bt- manufactured that would deter congress from passing the national election law at this session.

I'he bill reported to-day is 80,552,172 iess than the estimates aud 85,944,338 more than the bill of last year. The most important feature* of the work <d the senate committee i" the elimination from it of the appropriation of 8777,000 for irrigation surveys. This provision was vigorously attacked bv a number of western senetors and they succeeded iii defeating in in tile committee. Their op-position is based largely upon th** ground that its effect would be to reserve from lh** public domain a vast amount of public laud which should bt1 open to settlement.

The Commissioners Evident ly Have a Difficult Job on Their Hands. Des Moines, July 9.—Tile Register says:    Things begin to look as if the rail road commission were going to have as much difficulty in getting the joint rates into effect as they had with theiroriginal schedule of rates in 1**8. Tin* law went into effect in March. It is now well into July and not a road in the stare has in force a joint schedule which, in the opinion of the commission, is mad** in view of the law. After corresponding with a view to an amicable arrangement, and expecting for some months the companies voluntarily to put in joint rates themselves, satisfactory to the commission. Messrs. Smith and Campbell, with the subsequently obtained approval of Mr. Hey, determined to do it themselves. The schedule promulgated June 18 was the result. But from all present appearances the settlement of the difficulty is as far off as ever. The commission was promptly enjoined by tin- B.,C. IL & N., I and as to that road, there is not a possi-! bilby that the commissioners’ joint rates ! will be in force before* winter. Then the I Minneapolis and St. Louis, on t he day th*- rates were supposed to go into effect, enjoined the commission from taking any further steps as to that line. None of Geol her roads have. so far as th** commission know, taken any steps in conformity with the joint rat*1 law. . The joint rates promulgated bv i Inboard on June is went into force, according to tie1 terms of tie* order and tho, publication of them, *»n July I. The injunction was not. Commissioner Campbell thinks, served in time o prevent tiiis. The commission had done all it needed to do to put them in force before being restrained. That is to say, they, under tile provisions of the railroad law. became on that day prima facie evidence in the courts of reasonable charges, lr must be remembered that th** commission has no power to make absolute freight rates. Now. whim the rate, in this modified sense, has been promulgated and establisher!, there are two modes of enforcing it. One is for the shipper to go before* the commission and ask the commission to make an order compelling th** road to adopt the rat**. Of course this also may be done on the commission on motion. The other method is for the shipper to go into the ordinary courts. Upon - bowing that h** had paid more than the commissioners’ rate th** shipper would be entitled to recover the surplus back unless tie* road proves the rate to be unreasonable. The commission is of course a lawabiding body and does not propose to violate th** injunction. So the former methods of enforcing joint rates cannot be used. So far a" th*- commission is concerned they will take no steps against the Minneapolis and St. Louis. As to the other roads nothing has been determined. Air. Smith is in W ashington and Mr. Dr y is iii Iowa ( ity But Mr. Campbell is strongly of the opinion that even as lo the Minneapolis aud st. Louis company the joint rates became on the uh of July prima facie evidence, and that private shippers may enforce the schedule against that road. Furthermore it A Harmonious and Important Convention at Clinton, Iowa. ^Special to The Hawk-Eye.} Clinton, July 9.—The republicans of tin* second congressional district, embracing the counties of Jones. Jackson, Clinton, Cedar, Scott and Muscatine, held their convention ut this city to-day. Til** river delegates came up on a special steamer, and the others came in various ways, but they all got lier**. There was a full convention, and a good one. When it is remembered that the second congressional district of Iowa is from (ive to eight thousand democratic, it will be seen that there is little in the situation to attract the average politician out of ins hole. But this convention to-day was not a gathering of mere politicians. They did not scent the spoils afar off, but they came to contend for the principles aud the perpetuity of tile republican party. Th** nomination of Hon. Lyman A. Elli" at the bar convention in Davenport yesterday took that gentleman out of the field as a candidate. Tim nomination he received is equivalent to an election and he could not be expected to throw away the ermine and 82,500 a year foran honor that is likely to prove empty. It became necessary to find another man. Ii** was found, and he will be apt to reduce the majority upon which Hon. Walter I. Hayes is so fondly counting. His name is Bruce T. Seaman, and In* lives in Scott county not far from Davenport, where he is a successful farmer. It is fairly to be doubted whether any other candidate could have aroused the enthusiasm that he did. The nomination went to him spontaneously arid by acclamation. Bruce T. Seaman graduated from the Iowa Stare university quite a good many years ago. Ho is a little to young to have been in th** war, but no one blames him for that. His family was found lighting on th*- right side. Upon ins return from college he settled down upon the family farm in Scott county, and there Ii*- has continuously lived ever since. He was prominent in the grange movement, and powerful. He afterward went to the Iowa legislature and served a faithful and honorable term. Since then he ha- been mainly devoting himself to bis field-, ins books, the cause of education in its higher firms, and the cause of the Farmers’Alliance. There* is no count} in the stat*- that has this organization so well perfected and so strongly founded as Scott, and that this is Un* ease is to he attributed to the fact Mr. Seaman bus put his energy and his ability into it. He lias made it a power al his home. and a power for good. Individually lie is recognized as a man of clean habits and a spotless record on all points. He is such a man as th*- honest farmer and busbies" man can support with conscience, and he is popular wherefor hi- is known. He is a worker and it is a matter of certainty that he will do what ii** can to uphold the standard that has been entrusted to his hands. The republicans of Iowa have no ca ii"*- to anticipate ;t victory in this quarter, but they may lied it worth I while to watch the run that Mr. Seaman I will make. lie may be a handy man to ! full back on some other time.

July’ 9.— In ti:*1 house to-day Farquhar. of New York, called up the conference report on the bill appropriating 875,000 for the relief of Albert H. Emery and demanded the previous question thereon. The previous question was ordered and the report wa" agreed to. Mr. Hitt, of Illinois, from iii*1 committee on foreign affairs reported back the elution requesting the president to furnish the house with the correspondence between the governments of the United States and Great Britain touching the subjects in dispute in the Behr--ea since March 4, I "89. After a brief debat*' Hilt s re solution Was adopt* d. Mr. Hitt presented th**, conference report on the dcplomatio and consular appropriation bill. In the course of the discussion reference having been made to the appropriation made by the last bill for the protection of ‘he United Stat' "' rights in Samoa. Mr. McMillin, O'. Tennessee, declared it now appear* d that the entire result of Up Samoan negotiations had been to enthrone a king who had been dethroned ®y his people. Our representatives sent abroad for the purpose of settling the Samoan matt* rs had actually gone to the extent of overriding the will of the people of Samoa and setting up a" king a scapegrace who had been dethroned, ted. moreover, this American adminis- j Ration had undertaken to pay part of the expenses of his kingdom, It was a disgrace to the American people and to the administration responsible for the negotiations. Mr. McCreary, who was chairman of the committee on foreign aff airs of the last congress, said he believed we had done the best that c wild be done aud *hat McMillin was putting it too strongly, if he was not satisfied with the negotiations he could introduce a j bill to carry out bis views, or he could '.*U for the correspondence with the foreign nations. There was not a word teout Samoa in the present bill. Mr. McMillin—The gentleman had ad- VVashin*.ton, July 9,— I he president to-day returned to the house without ins approval the bill extending the payment to purchasers of land of th*1 Omaha tribe of Indians in Nebrska. The president iii his veto, says: “There is no objection thai I know of either on th** part of the United States or Indians to an extension of unpaid installments due from the pur-i chasers. This relief is probably due to tie- purchaser.” The president, however. objected re the provision “That all land", payment for which Is extended, shall I"’ subject to taxation by the stale of Nebraska as if fully paid for and patents issued.” The president is of Iii*1 opinion the till*1 of lite I nired States and th*1 interest of the Indians in the lands should not lie subjected to sal*1 for delinquiney of purchasers in paying tax assessment. i is even doubtful whether the commission ; will cure to defend against this last suit ! since they think tile rates are in force I and the injunction is doing no harm. I The injunction is from the district court j of VVebstcr county and the hearing is set for September 29. Asked for Joint Special to The Hawk-Eye. Des .Moines, July 9,—The railroad commissioners were- to-day in receipt of a telegram from Chicago from J. Ii. Kelly, general agent of th*1 Mason City and Fort Dodge, stating they were wining to put in joint rates in connection with the Illinois Central, hut could not fix a division :i" in the commissioners schedule. Commissioner Campbell replied that the board would be glad to have them put any kind of rate or division as long as the total amount did not exceed th** July \ schedule. This is th*1 onlv road which so far has asked for joint rates, and they ti rid it im-possible to establish them on the basis of th*1 railroad commissioners divison <»f charges to each road.
