HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Anat her Day Spent on th# Custom* Administrative Hill. Washington, Jan. 25.—The time of the bouse yesterday was almost wholly taken up in dtaruMHing proposed amendment# to the custom* administrative bill in ramniittee of th# whole. The pending amendment was that of Mr. Bayne of IVniisyBania to section 15, providing that, during the (tending of any controversy or litigation atxnit the amount of duty to lie paid by any owner, agent, importer or consignee on any imported merchandise in the eourta, the merchandise in question shall remain in the government warehouse and under control of the secretary of tile treasury, and in all action* brought against the collector of custom* by owners, agent#, importers or consignees, the plaintiff •hall lie required to prove before he can recover that said merchandise at the time of the trial ta in the custody of the government. Mr. Flower of New York read a telegram from Charles Landen A Co. of New York, protesting agal ast the Bayne amendment. M r. Mills of Texas supports I the amendment. He *(»oke in behalf of th# tax payer. lf an importer paid a higher rate of duty ami then sold his merchandise he made tl»e tax layer* pay the duty. Then, when with on# hand he had taken Die money out of the pocket of the tax payer ami (aid it with the other to the treasury, he went into the courts and secured a re-rat mg of the duty at a lower rate, thus again taking the money from the tax (layer, lf the amendment wa* agreed to and the goods require! to lie kept in the ware liou.se (tending litigation ti#* tax (layer would at any rate be required to (my tile duty but • ne*?. Mr. Carlisle of Kentucky thought that the amendment did not strike at the fraudulent importer, but at the honest imputer. A fraudulent importer never w anted to go into txairt. Hie amendment was an indirect provision that no holiest ii ii porter of got* ta shoo Id lie allowed to afipeal to the court# for the correction of any wrong. Owing to the crowded docket* of the court- a decision in an import case might not ta* remkred for three or four years, lf, in the meantime, the goods were required to be kept in bond it would work a Hardship on the importer. The remedy was for cougm*. to make tho statute# plain ami simple, st) that the officers of the government might liave no difficulty in con.-truing them and the court# might be more diligent in the trial of import rases. Mr. I .afol let# of Wisconsin, offered an amendment to tile amendment providing that perishable goods may lie withdrawn pending litigation. This was agreed to, but the Hayne amendment as amended was defeated. M r. Breckenridge of Kentucky substituted an amendment the effect of which ta to give the circuit court the right to determine questions of fact as well as questions at taw, and pleaded for the right of every citizen to have his case tried before a jury of his peers. Mr, Chipman of Michigan favored this amendment, but after furthec discussion the amendment was rejected. Mr. Carlisle offered a substitute for the whole section, proposing to allow the court# to determine questions of fact as well as taw. Thta was reje -ted. Borne further progress was made with the bill, when the committee cum# aud the house at 4 45 adjourned. Dr, Peters Reported Alive. Zanzibar.
