enormous quantity of land given by.

it was a larger area of land than that
constituting the Republic or France,
or the Empire of Germany. The
present value 6f railroad land grante
at the average price already realized
by the companies was $773,796,893.

L The private businsss having been
dispensed with, theu session ordered
for tonight is for the consideration of
the legislative appropriation bill, and
the session for tomorrow night for
the considartion of pension bills. '
Cobb, of Indiana, from the com
mittee on public lands, reported back
the Atlantic & Pacific i land forfeit
ure bill, with Senate amendments.
No action was taken, and the motion
was laid over uiitil Monday. The
House then went into committee of
the whole, Blount in the chair, on
the legislative, executive and judicial
In the discussion of the paragraph
relating to committee plerks, Morri
son. ironically referring to the res
duction of salaries claimed by Hol
man to be made in the bill, called atv
tention to the i fact that $1,600 was
appropriated for an assistant clerk to
the committee On f appropriations,
when there was no law which pre
vented a reduction being made.
,. Holman said that that sum had
been appropriated iu,four years, but
expressed his willingness to vote for
a reduction,' if Morrison ' made the
motion. ; . i - a . . - v - -
The two gentlemen then engaged in
a colloquy which;amused . the mem

point of order against the.deeignation
by name of the j various House em

by the chair, y . X
.Cobb, of Indiana, offered an amend
ment making an ; appropriation for
first i assistant - doorkeeper of -? the
House. The bill fails to make any
provision fpr this office,, which is now
filled by Luther F. Warder. '
Howard, of Indiana, in supporting
the amendment, protested against
the legislating -of ; Warder out of of
fice;' and' hoped that, the committee
would not attempt to do indirectly
what - the House had refused to do
directly a few days agoThe amend
ment was rejected. r . " . -'
Allen, of Mississippi, ; offered
an amendment providing that
none of. the money appropriated for
CQptingent:- funds shall be used in
paying the expenses of the funeral of
any member of Congress. At home,
he said, when a pauper died, munici
pal corporations appropriated the ex
orbitant sum of $10 . to ; bury him ;
but when a milionairedied.tbis housu
appropriated from 13,000 ta $100,000
to bury him. . The gentlemen who
went upon . these funeral excursions
did not recover thejr spirits, for the
balance of the session. He had; heard
such remarks anhisj ,'Do you know
so and sot" ."Ob, yes. j lly good feU
low. I went on a funeral with. him.
Herehe looks to be very quiet," but
you would be surprised to find, how
jolly he is when ? be gets ; away . and
what a eood earae of cards- he plavs
and the number 'of drinks he takes."

that the' amendment would be reject

Allen suggested that' from the' vote
it would.seem that most of the memv

that if the Hoyse continued in the
course it hssi fbeen' pursuing good

this point. Findlay, - of Maryland, )
said that the provision whether in
the form presented by the gentleman
from Pennsylvania, of in its original
form, was a proposition conceived in
th spirit of the purest buncombe for
basest purposes of the most transpa
rent demagoguery. There was no
man here who doubted ; that it was
subject to a point of order and there
fore would be thrust out of the bill
as an irresistible f and impertinent
intruder There .was- no jmau wh?
doubted that ; if by any miscar
riage such should not; be its fate,
when it got to the Senate that body
. - i. . - i. i a y . . A 1 -
would trampie it unaer ioot witn tne
scorn and contumely it deserved. If,
contrary, to reason; and precedent, it
should pass that body, it would con
front a hostile executive, who would
give it his approval only under com
pulsion of the forced position to
which he had "been driven by his own
Eolitical friends This House (and
y this he meant the Democratic ma
jority) had already rudely turned its
back on one of the principal reforms
in the currency of the country re
commended by the President, and as
if that had not been enough it pros
posed to knock, from .under him the
very foundation stone of his political
creed and ; public i success,? and this
waa politics and; these were leaders.
If it were not so serious a subject a
man might sit down and laugh at
this old party preserving its succes-,
sion and ,name if not in policy and
principles, through half a century of.
conflict and varying fortune, fighting
battles for twenty -five years only to
lose: them without . .one break" in the
long chain of reverses, and ,then -at
last, after all this long postponement,'
disappointment and mortification
and defeat. -when" party victory had
brushed aside the blacK-cloud of - dis
asterand revealed the silver lining to
its . ravished gaze, whether intoxi
cated by the spectacle or toad from
excess of iov. the grand old party
uneaual to the task or deliberate
contemplation of its own- splendid
achievementeCasked to be dismissed
in the' very moment of its triumph
and on the. very spot where it had
achieved it. ' It bad - voted down an
honest dollar; and pow it proposed to
tear away the safeguard to tne roost
valuable law m tne statute-; dook.
Let no gentleman deceive himself.
The gentleman from Indiana' (Hoi
maiiVia resDonse to a Question a few
days ago, bad said that the object of
the amendment was to deal out every
handfull of justice, and the gentle
man from Illinois (Springer) had still
more plainly let the House know that
it was intended to give partisan in
stead of non-partisan service. That
effect of the amendment requiring
certification of the full list ot eligi
hies tn the appointintr power would
be to give partisan and not non-par
tisan service was not a ; mere matter
of conjectural b peculation, .but it was
. k J -
a matter oi experience uuil-ubuchcu,
boasted of. and-eloated over, by the
Baltimore postmaster-: This ingem
ous young man had got the whole list
of eligibles into his hands.
A voice -What is he l
Findlav-A Democrat. He wss a
Democrat in office.- He was appoint
ed by the Pregident"' to the -office.
That fills his democracy, I suppose,
thouffh that is 4 a . Question of -some
doubr (Laughter and applause ) He
srot a list cf tlieibles into, his own
hands, and what use did?. he make of
it f . According to hi own statement
before a multitude; oi civil: service
eommissioners who were in Baltimore
he made such ' bad . me of. it that in
lets spnee th?in a year he hnd turned
out every Republican in that oHjch,
and had put Democrats ' in - their
places without missing any one" .
- While Mr- Findlay was - delivering
bis speechfthe members from both
sides of the House crowded arouud
him. and his last: sentence was - re
ceived with a burst of mingled hisses
and applause applause being partly
intended for the sentiments express-'
ed by Fmdlay, and partly m appro
bation of the action of the Baltimore
postmaster " '-- i.
Turning defiantly to the Dt-mocrat
ic side, Findlay exclaimed ; "When
you applaud the eff'Hst : -of
this amendment ' then ' you .-mean
to say that the certification of all
elligibles will - res?ult m . what you
nave appiaaaea. xnen you mean to
say that ; the object ot this amend
ment is to give a partisan and not a
non partisan service. AppUud just
as long as you pieaser ' weitner hisses
nor applause will deter me from the
discbarge of what I consider a duty."
j. Applause. .
; JJiud lay then continued to review
the action of the Baltimore pustmas
ter. This ing-njus young man, he
saidwith the aid of a more : expert
manipulator, still had - violated the
law and rules of the civil service com
mission, and still boasted that if ' he
had only been spared a little longer
in his place be would have turned
over? the Democratio civil, service
reform post office to his successor
