The senate then proceeded to vote on the resolution to exclude . from Th6 Record the interpolations made by Mr. Call in the rep'jrt of tho discussion with Mr. Chandler! The resolution was agreed to-yeas 86, nays 14. Four Democratii vottd in the affirmative, ;viz Messrs. Payne, Pugh, Vance and Cock-reli. Consideration of the resolution for the election of a'president pro tern, to act duiing the absence of the vice president was ihen proceeded with. - ; Senator George made an. argutaent against the resolution on' constitutional grounds, holding up the itivariable jpr&-cedent of the senate in support of bis views. The Constitution, he laid, jwaa to be set aside fdr mere matter'of convenience. � \ . , During the course of Mr. QeoWe's ra-: marks the hour of 3 o'clock' having- arrived the educational bill.came: tip aslun-fiuished business. At the conclusion of Mr. George'3 .emarks, the matt�rof fixing a day for taking a yctteojn'the;bill was takea up, and aftersome discussion Thursday, March 20, was fixed upon! for general debate to close at i o'clocb.' " Mr. Plumb, however, gave uotice^bat he would m ive to take up some other measure and to set aside the Blair bill. : Mr. Pluiiib moved an amendment to rule ao to provide that all voles taken in seuret session, whether yea votes or otherwise, shia.ll be made public at the close ot the soiision at. which they were cast The motion was re erred to the committee on rules. Consideration of the resolution in jre-gard to president pro tempore was [resumed and Mr. Turpie moved an amend-;ment, which was .icceptedrby Mr. Evarts, raaking.it read that jiKe- pres-lident pro teinporestiaU hold office "during all future absences of .the'viije-pijea-' �ident." The resolution was'agroed ' to without a division. v,,u':,.i:; - The educational bill was then taUen .:up :and:MrS(3eDrge:sp,;)ke.inri8upporJ^ tlie bill. He regarded the measure as a' generous off�r made by the northern Ktates to tlie Southern states. He would not ask alms for tlie., people of, Mississippi, but he should not go into the pinning business as the senator from West Virginia (i\Ir. Baulkner) had done some weeks ago when he got on his high horse and proposed to spurn bribes and all that sort of thing. There was no hr'me in i>. But he did not feel that he had a right when ha looked at the condition: of a large portion of the black people of Mississippi to reject the ptfer made. Mr. George said that while he did not share in the idea that the colored people of the s"buth would be elevated by eoU-catio)!, he was willing to have "'the op^ portunity extended to them. He tfaien branched into a defence of the white people of the south i nd a criticism .of those who stir up dissensions at the south for political purposes. Senator Hoar speaking in support jOf the bill, said that the measure was nearer to his heart than anything else proposed or discussed beforih the American people. If he could be assured that the bill could become a ktw and the great consequences would result from it which he expected to result, hew uid be willing to go out of public life to-, morrow and never to be again heard of among his countrymen. The'debate then took a sectional tum| Mr. George arguing that the act for the readmission of Mississippi, Texas and Virginia forbids those states from imposing an educat onal test to voters. Finally tho discussion came to a dose and after a short executive session, the senate at 6 p. m, adjourned. Houiie. The house passed senate bill appropriating $6,100 for removal of sand oa,r8 at the entrance of the harbi r of Milwaukee, Wis. Bdls were also passed granting the right of way through the Sisseton and Wahpeton Indiaii' reservation in Dakota to the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad company, and extending time of payment to purcniu of land from the Omaha Indians in Nebraska. The house went into committee of > the whole on the Uklahoma bilL - AIouk discussion followed over fthe proponed 'amendments prohibiting the sale of in-' 'toxioating liquor? in the territo> y, and a higlvlicen-ie amendnient;;?but'finally an amendment prohibiting; the'introduction,: of intoxicating liquors into the territory until after the aa;joumment,a�. the first session of the' territorial \os^ig,X\ue, was jadopted, by : a ,vote of TO tOiSt.'^'iOn motion: of, Mr., Holinan'of' Irraiana an amendment was adopted providing that none of the lands embraoe'd-'irithe towhen ex-Governor Pattif Bon;�nd others are ixpccted to be present Niagara Falls, Ont,, Maroli 13.-J.

Mrs. Birchell was remanded for eight days and will remain in cvistoJy o� an officer at Baldwin's boarding house this village, where slie has been her arrest, The village was full of strangers. Farmers had driven in for miles to see the last scene in the drama enacted at this point. For hours before the coui't opened the court room was filled with a perspiring crowd. The people were mas-sed together compactly, the lobby was lull, and m my stood out in tliu pouring rain. A sensation was created during the afternoon when it wa-s learned that Jame.n A. MaoDonald of Toronto, nephew of Sir John A. Mac-Donald, and one of the most noted criminal lawyers in Canada, was present in behalf of Birchell. Mrs. Birchell, looking pale and weak, was brought into court, at '5 o'clock. Magistrate Hill said his information now was that Mrs. Birchell was accessory to the crime in Niagara county, and that all evidence against her should be hear I here. Neither side had- any further evidence in her case. Lawyer Ives clamed she was entitled to instant discharge. Magistrate Hill was not sure of his authority in the premises and re-�imanded her for- eight days, with the understanding'that she could be brought, up at any time in the interim and her case disposed of. Biroiiell, when brought into the court room, appeared serene ann perfectly unconcerned. The handcuffs' being ra-moved from his wrists he crossed' his legs, tipped back, his chair and waited for the proceedings to begin. About half a dozen, witnesses were sworn. Jlost of the evidence wag: a resu iie of that taken at the coroner's inquest. It came from trainmen who saw Birchell ,and Benwell on that fatal trip to Princeton on the morning of February 17.
