FOR RECIPROCITY. A Pea-A mer! css Scheme About Which Mr. Blat** Is silent, Wanhington. March > —Secretary Blame wa* asked last night about the correctne** of the published report to the effect that two United States delegates to the Fan American congress were, in the name of the secretary aud with his approval, to make a proposition of absolute reciprocity to the representatives of the Houth American countries. The secretary read the published di*]tatch carefully and with evident interest, but positively declined to mak* any comment* and would not permit himself either to admit or deny the truth of the statement it contained It was learned, however, from a gentleman who is supposed to be well posted as to what is going on in the conference, that Mr Flint and Mr Coolidge, two of the delegate* from the United States, hgv* been amt are still in consultation with some of the foreign delegate* with reference to the subject above stated, but whether they are acting u|mn their own responsibility or under instruction* of the secretary of stat*, could not lie ascertained Th* proposition is said to involve the surrender by the Unit«si States of the duties upon sugar and carpet wool* imported from the countries of Central and South America, in exchange for similar concession* from the overament* of those countries a* to merchandise imported from the United State*, including all farm product*, refined petroleum, lumber, agricultural implements and machinery, and some other article*. It is asneited that such an exchange of concessions would increase the erjsirt* from the United State* to Latin America from fifty to sixty millions of dollar* a year. CONG MISSION AL NEWS.

Washington, March 28 —The bill to authorize the president to appoint and retire John C. Fremont, a major general in the United State* army, was reported to the senate favorably yesterday. Mr. Bland of MiHKouri and Air. J. R. Williams of Illinois submitted a minority report on the Windom silver coinage bill protesting against its passage In their report they say the bill is a very dangerous experiment for it fails to restore the parity of the two metal*, an I fail it must beyond any shadow of doubt, and silver will be in a worse plight than now. The bill, in their opinion, is very adroitly drawn to suspend silver coinage, to totally demonetize this metal, and to permanently establish the single standard of gold (laymen te, but all the same it doe* these things effectually, though cunningly.

VV’ A ABINGTON, March 28.—'The bouse met at ll o’clock yester.'ay and continued discussion of the Wyoming admission bill, finally pacing the bill. Mr. Oath Waite of Ohio opposed the bill, basing ais opposition ujton the insufficiency of population in the proposed state. Mr. Huckalew of Pennsylvania als*> antagonized the measure, declaring that it wa* a bribe held out to ' ongrw*' by th* tora] office seeking element in the territory. It wa* intended to flack the United States senate, a senate already having eight new Republican -eat*, six fairly held and two stolen. Mr. McAdoo of New-Jersey said that the constitut on of Wyoming, if not the worst constitution ever adopted, was abreast of the worst. There was in that constitution almost everything that wa* had in poiitica, moral* and economic*. The only good thing in it wa* the clause which aliow’ed it to be amended. Mi Springer vigorously opposed the {menage of the bill. Ile criticised the provisions [ of the Wyoming constitution and charged gross irregularities in the adoption of that I constitution. He did not desire to ilelay the admission of Wyoming into the union at the carlie-t practicable time, but he insisted that it* admission should be after the most careful consideration by the people of the territory and after mature deliberation by : the congress of the United States Mr. Stniblc of Iowa denied that the people •if Wyoming bud act**! in violation of any I law in the adoption of the constitution Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio said the Demo* I cretic party since the fall of slavery, and since ii ha*! ceased to udmit state* in order to keep up the practiiy* of slavery, had aiwnv* opposed the admission of state*. Host lilt v, either open and declared, as now, or covert or insinuated, a* in the Fiftieth ; congress, had always been the policy of the Democratic {arty. At one o’clock the previous question was ordered. Mr. Springer, on behalf of the minority of the committee, offered an amendment providing for another convention called under the authority of an act of cong re**. Ixist: yea* 131. nays 138. Mr. Springer then offered an amendment providing that there shall lie an election in Wyoming next November for a representative to the fifty-first and fifty-second cou-r tease* and for state and judicial office*. The. constitution shall be voted upon, and if the vote is against female suffrage, that feature shall lie eliminated from the constitution. This was also lost; yea* 133. nays 139. Mr. Springer then offered his last amendment. which strikes out the clause of the Wyoming constitution providing for female suffrage, aud this ways defeated; yea* 139, gays 127. Th'- was a strict jiarty vote The hou-e then went into committee of the whole on the army appropriation bill. The bill wa* read at length and w ithout action. The oommitb»e rose, and the house at 5:10 adj* Kirned. in thf; sf:natf:. Washington, March 28.—The senate yes-terdav pas-d house bill to amend the act of March 3, 1881* (die effect of it being to allow sp**cial agent* $3 a d- y for subsistence while traveling); bouse bill appropriating $35,000 for the purchase of tent* for the use of flood sufferers of Ar ansa*. Mississippi and Lou--a a; » Hate bill suspending for on year the statute- that require steamers to be provided with certain life-saving appliances, guns for throwing lim-*, etc. The amendnu’n * to the anti-tru-t bill a* reported fr< rn the committee of the whole were then considered. The ti t ain**!i Im ut discussed wa* the one excepting from the prohibitions of the law the combination* of workmen and farmers. Mr. Edmunds said that h- was in favor of doing anything that the constitution permitted congress to d(» in suppressing and break ing up trust- and monopolies, because human ext erien-'e had provcsl them to he destructive of the public welfare. People could not -hut their eye* to th? fact that if capital combined to regulate wage* the workmen were also compelled to combine to defend themselves. And so the country ha* for the last forty years lieen turned into great camps of enemies w hile there ought to be one ramp of co-operative friends. Bo far a* the constitutional question went, he believed that the safety of the nation depended more largely on the preservation of what were called the rights of the states than on any other one thing. He therefore should be -low about voting for any act of congress which he thought went over the boundary which the constitution prescribes. He wa* uot willing to vote for a bill that would be deceptive and illusionary, mere dust and ashes, aud would uot be coerced into doing so by newspaper outcry, by farmers' alliances or anything else. Mr. Platt vigorously attacked the bill, declaring that it w a* a bill that aimed at every business in the United States. Unrestricted competition, he asserted, was brutal warfare and injurious to the whole country. The great corporations and monopolies of the country were built on the graves of weak competitors, forced to their death by remorseless competition. He would not like to vote against the bill, becau*e be believed that there were criminal combination* in the country. But he believed that every man in business had a moral right to obtain a fair profit, and if his business was dow n to an unremunerative point it wa.* his right to combine with other men for the purpose of raising price* to a remunerative point. He was willing to support a well con-idered and an honest bill. but th? conduct of the senate for the i»ast three (lays ba I not been iii the line of an honest bill to prohibit and punish trusts. It had lieen in the line of getting some bill with that title to go to the country with. Mr Walthall moved to refer the bill and amendment* to the judiciary committee with instructiou* to report back within twenty day*. The motion was agreed to—yens, 31, nays, 38. The Republican senators who voted in the affirmative were Cameron, Higgins Platt, Stanford, Stockbridge, Teller ami Wolcott. The Democrat* who voted in the negative were Berry, Cockrell, Pugh. Turpie, Vanre and Voorhees. The senate then took up the dependent pension bill. Mr. Plumb's amendment giving a (elision of $12 per month to all who had served three months or more and w ho are suffering ‘rom mental or physical disability which incapacitate* ti em from the performance of manual lab** if the incapacity is total was, after some discussion, rejected. The bill then went over without final action. The order fixing the daily hour of meeting at Ila. rn from Monday next was agreed to. aud at 5:30 p. rn the senate adjourned. RAPID TRANSIT BILL. A Combination of the Mena urea ef Me? er Grant am! Mr. FaaaetL A l.H A NY. March 28. — The senate committee on raih oad* decided to report a rapid transit bill. There were no disaenting vute* and the bill will lie put before the senate practi-eally a* the Fassett bilk It is, however, a combination of the bills of Mayor Grant and Mr Fa suet t with various amendment* injected by Corporation Counsel Beekman of Hew York and Mr. B L. Boardman. Th* general provisions of the bill as amended mak* it apply to all the cities of the state of 100,000 inhabitants or mot'* It will. therefore, affect six cities The bill provides that withhi ten days after the passage of the bill the governor shall appoint eight rapid transit commissioners to be confirmed by the senate The commissioners are to be paid by the cities they serve ami by th* railroad corporations, but the state allows $10,000 for expenses.
