War may deem necessary, upon advice
of the Mississippi river commission, in
the immediate repair or construction
of such levees as, will assist in deepen
ing the channel and the improvement
of navigation, but not for the purpose
01 preventing injury to tne lanas Dy
An amendment proposed by uariand
increases the appropriation to $15,000,
000 613,000,000 to the Mississippi and
62,000,000 to the Missouri river to be ex
pended in tne construction, completion,
repairing and preservation of such
works as in the judgment of the com
mission will best locate and deepen the
river channel and protect the banks,
improve, give satisfaction and ease to
navigation, prevent destructive floods,
facilitate trade and the postal service.
Kellogg in opening the debate stat
ed that "while the bill was unanimous
ly reported some members of the com
mittee believed it Detter to impose no
restrictions upon the Mississippi river
commission, and he would be at liberty
to agree to an amendment constituting
members of that body the sole judges
as to whether any part of the appropria
tion shall be used in building levees.
Speaking of the magnitude of the recent
overflow he said it covered a highly cul
tivated area, inhabited by farmers and
planters, of nearly 1,000 miles in length
and from thirty to fifty miles in width.
He said the States in the valley had ex
pended millions in fruitless preventive
measures tnatncorporations naa Been
alike unsuccessful, and that now all
were compelled to look to the general
government for some effective plan for
protection. He understood the com
mission to nave adopted tne concentra
tion rather than the outlet theory, the
one upon which the channel on South
pass was deepened by aid or tnejet-
ties, and he believed this pian would
ultimately dispense with the necessity
for any system of levees a3 such. This
plan would close the gaps in the em
batfkments, confine the stream within
narrower limits and increase the cur
rent in such a manner as to wash out
and deepen the channel. As to the jus
tice of the demand for Congressional
aid he said this was now generally re
cognized as a work that was a national
one. The Mississippi river was the
Eroperty of the United States, having
een acquired by purchase and its free
navigation having been provided for in
the treaty with France. He quoted
from Garfield's letter of acceptance and
Presidential nominations upon the
profound importance of an improve
ment of this great national highway,
and remarked that the proposed appro
priation was in reality only half of the
amount annually imposed upon the
commerce of the Mississippi for in
creased rates of insurance. The appro
priation was predicated solely upon es
timates and reports of the commission,
and was supported by careful estimates
of a responsible corps of engineers. It
was less by SlzsKX) than the estimate
of the commission after specifying
many of the expenditures of the gov
ernment in the way of improvements,
such as railroads, rivers and harbors, to
show the authority and justification for
improving the great inland sea, the
commerce and trade of which exceed
our entire foreign commerce. Kellogg
proceeded to discuss the different sys
tems of improvement considered by
the commission. One apparently re
garded as the most feasible contem
plates the scowinff out 01 the channel
through the shallows and bars where
the width of the river is excessive with
a view to establishing a uniform veloc
ity at all stages of the river.
Cameron, of Wisconsin, favored the
bill, but doubted the propriety of con
fining the entire expenditure for Mis
sissippi improvements below ssew
Madrid, as was contemplated by the
plans of the commission.
McMillan complained that the com
mission had given too much attention
to the lower portion of the river, to the
prejudice of the survey above St. Louis.
Conger made a like criticism.
Kellogg argued to show the urerencv
of the improvements below the mouth
of the Ohio, and that these, like the
jetty system, would be of general utility
to tne commerce or an tne states. He
suggested a comparison of the amount
of expenditures now proposed for the
benefit of this national highway with
the probable aggregate of from seven
to nine millions to do voted in the river
and harbor bill forimprovements which
are comparatively ot local or trivial

age, weights and measures, moved to
suspend the rules and pass a bill au
thorizing the receipt of United States
gold coin for gold bars. Agreed to.
Price, of Massachusetts, under in
structions from the committee on for
eign affairs, moved to suspend the rules
and pass the Senate bill for the relief
of the heirs of the owners, officers and
crew of the brig "Genl. Armstrong."
Agreed to. Yeas, 136: nays, 85.
Harris, of Massachusetts, under in
structions from the committee on naval
affairs, moved to suspend the rules and
adopt the resolution providing for
night sessions until further notice on
Mondays and Wednesdays for the con
sideration of bills authorizing the con
struction of vessels of war for the
United States and providing a perma
nent construction fund for the navy.
This started a lively discussion. Hew
itt, of New York, opposed fixing any
time for the consideration of those bills
until the resolution of inquiry, which
he had offered early in the season, had
been answered by the Secretary of the
Navy. That resolution looked to the
acquisition by the House of informa
tion without which it was absolutely
impossible for the House to engage in
an intelligent consideration of either
of these bills. There was one thing
which must precede the reconstruction
of the navy and that was reconstruc
tion ofthe navy department.
Whitthorne, of Tennessee, opposed
the resolution, holding that it was in
cumbent upon the House before legis
lating upon the subject to know what
was likely to be the policy of the new
Secretary of the Navy, because if his
policy was to be like that of some of
his predecessor the House would owe
it to itself and to the country to with
Harris, of Massachusetts, in reply to
Hewitt stated that the information
called for was so extensive that it
would take all the force of the navy
department to collect it by the close of
Springer also said that the Navy De
partment should be reorganized before
the work of reorganizing the navy
should be entered upon. He was op
posed to beginning a policy that would
cause an expenditure of millions of
dollars to build ships of war in a time of
profound peace, the country being at
peace aud not desiring to cultivate the
arts of war. He was opposed to a large
standing army or a large navy.
Hardenburgh, of New Jersey, inquir
ed whether the navy of the United
States was strong enaugh for this coun
try to demand the release of American
prisoners abroad ?
Springer replied that if the United
States demanded their release, they
would be released. It was the moral
power of the government that would
secure the release of American pris
oners in Ireland.
Finally, the motion was lost yeas
145. nays 91 the necessary two-thirds
not being in the affirmative.
Page, of California,under instructions
from the committee on education and
labor, moved to suspend the rules and
put upon its passage the anti-Chinese
bill, with a ten -year period of suspen
sion of immigration.
The bill having been read, Bragg, of
Wisconsin, rising to a parliamentary
question, inquired how it was that a bill
to execute treaty stipulations, to regu
late immigration, and affecting natural
ization laws came to be reported by the
committee on education and labor?
Speaker Because the subject was re
ferred to it.
Bragg I suppose, nnder the ruling
of the chair, that whatever goes in
must come out.
Willis, of Kentucky, announced his
intention to vote for the bill, although
protesting against its principle, lie
would vote for it. and let the responsi
bility for its failure rest wherever it
would. Derisive laughter on the Re
publican side. "He laughs best," con
cluded Willis, "who laughs last." Ap
plause on the Democratic side.
Upon the conclusion of Willis' speech
until the adjournment of -the House
that body was most of the time in a
state of uproar and confusion, which
was started when Page, of California,
who was entitled to fifteen minutes for
debate, instead of consuming that time,
demanded a vote. He had no sooner
declared hi3 intension not to speak than
Rice, of Massachusetts, sprang to the
floor to speak against the measure, but
was not recognized by the Speaker, who
stated that he had recognized Willis as
opposed to the bill, as that gentleman
had demanded a second on the original
Randall a3ked leave to have the
House vote upon an amendment fixing
the term of suspension at 15 years, but
was met with a storm of objections
from the Republican side.
Then Springer, of Illinois, and Ken
na, of West Virginia, sprang to their
feet demanding that as a matter of jus
tice, Rice, of Massachusetts, should be
permitted to speak against the measure,
and a heated colloquy ensued between
Kenna and the speaker as to whether
Kenna had xizsn to a Parliamentary in
quiry and as to his right to debate it.
Robeson, of N. J., also entered into
the discussion which was being carried
on in an excited manner and he was
greeted with cries of "order" from the
Kenna asserted his right to speak
and declared that "this chair shall
not deny me that right," to which
Humphrey, of Wisconsin, replied that
bluster was unnecessary as there had
not been any right denied to any body.
The Speaker finally stated that he
would listen to the gentleman fron
West Virginia, but that gentleman had
proceeded no further than to say "the
chair will be seated, which I respect
When again there were loud calls for
"order" from the Republican side, while
Humphrey, f Wisconsin, angrily ex
claimed, directing his remarks to Ken
na, "set him down," there was a great
deal of angry feeling shown on both
sides, which led Kenna jocularly to re
quest his Republican friends to have
patience and no blood would be shed.
Cox, of New York, here entered the
discussion, relating that in good faith
and equity the gentleman from Massa
chusetts, Rice, should be heard in op
position to the bill. The House had al
;eady obtained information from the
gentleman from Kentucky, Willis, that
he was in favor of the measure, so that
the ruling of the chair meant half an
hour in favor of the measure, and not
one moment in opposition to it.
Thetspeaker: "The chair is willing to
listen to a lecture to the House by the
gentleman from New York, or any oth
er gentleman, but he knew epecifically
well that no part of it can possibly ap
ply to the chair."
Randall, Vallentine and Speaker
Keifer then had a misunderstanding
which took some time to straighten out.
Rice then made another effort to be
heard, but was again sat down upon.
Willis also wished to heard again but
the speaker had recognized Page, of
Page was soon interrupted by Coxe, of
New York, who soon came in conflict
with the speaker and sat down protest
ing against the suppression of Massa
chusetts. Page again got started and discussed
the gravity of the question before the
Kasson followed Page, the arguments
presenting nothing not advanced in the
debate on the vetoed bill.
At the conclusion of Kasson 'a sneech
after a scene of confusion incident up
on another attempt of the opponents of
the measure to be heard.
The rules were suspended and the bill
