Mr. Butterworth said it he had a clerk he would be a year more to his constituents, Mr. Breekenrtdge, of Kentucky, said that under the prewtot rules, the Senate was usurp- ing the power ot the House and was becoming the leader of public opinion. The Senate dis- ensaed public matters in public before the nt tloo, and long as it continued to do this and the House continued to conduct its business without proper debate, the Senate would be- come the true representative of the people. The House, he said, was abdicating its power day by day. After further discussion, the mo- tion to strike out was 85 to 87. Mr. Kelley, of Kansas, started a general de- bate as to the persecution of Republican post- mastera and outrages in the South, after which tbe House adjourned, SSNATK-Mr. Reagan addressed the Senate in Support of his lull to repeal all laws for tho retirement of army and navy offlcers with pay.

BUFFALO, N. Y., April Since last Saturday the police and customs officials have been on the lookout for an impor- tation of Mongolians. It came Thurs- day night. About midnight a rowboat touched the shore at the foot of Hertel avenue and three Chinamen attempted to alight. They were immediately seized by customs officers for illegal en- trance and turned over to the police, and gave their names as Wong Sing and "Wung Hai, laundrymen, and Mack Fung Gun, merchant They were searched and concealed on their persons were found twenty-seven balls of opium. Wong Sing stated that he kept a laun- dry in Norwich, Conn., but it was learned that he loft there tour years ago and went back to China, and had come back a short time ago, his passport showing that he had landed at Vancou- ver in September. From a card found on Mack Tung Gun, giving the address of a Chinese laundry iu Toronto, it is thought they came from that city. The prisoners were turned over to the Fed- eral authorities. BASEBALL.

WASHINGTON, April cele- brated California redwood land cases oc cupied the attention of Interior Depart ment officials Wednesday for a shor time. Argument was heard by Assist ant Secretrey Chandler and Assistant Attorney General Shields on the appeal of Beach. Evans, et al., from the de- cision of the General Land Office Com- missioner holding for cancellation tim- ber land entries in Humboldt County, California, rnaed under the act of March 3. 1878. While only about forty entries are directly at issue, fully sixty thou- sand acres of the redwood timber lands are involved. As a result of an investigation or- dered by the Land Commissioner in 1883, he discovered that TOO or 800 en- tries, containing probably the most val- uable timber in the world and estimated to be worth were fraudulent in character. Patents for about 150 ol these entries, however, had already been issued. It was maintained by tho commissioner that the entries were pro- cured through fraud. The Scottish In- vestment Company, of Edinburgh, Scot- land, are now the principal parties in interest, and they claim that they be- came owners by the bona fide payment of 87 per acre and are innocent pur- chasers.

The bill extends the Idaho test oath to Utah. This Mr. Caine claims is unjust, and further claims that Congress has not the right to pass such a measure, as it will disfranchise all the persons who adhere 10 the Mormon church.

The commission de- sided that it could not and dismissed tbe petition._____________ HURLED INTOlETJERNlTY. Three 3ten Killed and Six Injured by t Boiler Kxploalon.

Dodge Co.. in another quarter of the town.

It was also decided to im- mediately request tha National Execu- tive Board to order the union granite cutters employed by Norcroes Bros, at Stony Creek, Conn., Mllford, Mass., and other places in the New England States to strike order to sustain the gran 114 sutlers of Boston in their struggle with the firm, which is now being supported by the New York branch.

The strike of the cigarmakers em- ployed in the factory of Kauffman Bros. it Bondy for an increase of wages has resulted successfully. The em- ployes obtained an increase of from fifty cents to and per thousand sigars. The firm also promised to do away with the tenement house system. The officials at the Grand Central De- pot yesterday stated that there was no strike of the employes on the New York Central railroad tn this city.

The thirty striking carpenters ar- rested Tuesday at Englewood for riot- Ing were released on 9400 bail each yes- terday morning. Their cases were set for trial May 2.

AN AGREEMENT BEACHED By Republtdan Congressmen on a Silver Bill and a Pension National Election Law Considered.

The silver question was brought up by Mr. Conger, of Iowa, who stated that the sub-committees of the caucus committees of the Senate and House had come to an agreement which had been approved by the caucus committee of the House. The caucus committee had prepared a bill which covered all the amendments agreed to.

It also repeals provisions of the present law which require the coinage of not less than each month. After a discussion of an hour or so the caucus committee bill was agreed to. with only six dissenting votes. Tbe matter of pensions was also taken up and after a short discussion tbe cau- cus indorsed the Morrlll Service Pension bill. This bill grants a pension of S3 per month to soldiers who have served ninety days In the Rebellion and who have reached tbe age of sixty-two years. The question of passing some national election law was brought forward and Mr. Lodge urged the adoption by the caucus of his bill placing the election of Representatives In Congress under na- tional control. Mr. Lodge was followed by Mr. RowclL of Illinois, chairman of the Committee, who la favor of the improvement of the super- visor system as a means of correcting election evils.
