Senatl Feb. 23. Mr. IVy introduced
his International Congress bill. Its title
is a bill to promote the political progress
and commercial prosperity of American
Mr. Morgan offered a preamble aud
resolutions, which at his request were
ordered printed and laid on the table
for the present. They recite the lirst
resolution in the Edmunds series and
direct the committee on privileges and
elections to enquire and report whether
if the office of the Attorney .General is
as stated therein, he is liable to impeach
ment and removal from office.
Mr. Hoar called up the bill apportion
ing $250,000 for the erection of a monu
ment in Washington City to the memo
ry of Gen. Grant and it was passed.
The Educational bill . was placed he
fore the Senate and Mr. Gray of Dela
ware took the floor in opposition to th;i
bill. He did not believe it to be within
the power of Congress to enact such a
law without first amending the consti
tution. Mr. Plumb also opposed the bill. He
regarded it as an anomaly in legislation,
appropriating money, not only for one
year, but for eight years. He had no
doubt that at the end of eight years, if
the pabulum now provide were not con
tinued, conventions would meet and
delegations would be eent to Washing
ton to urge Congress to keep on appro
priating more money. We must, there
fore, understand that in passing this
bill, we are arranging for expenditures
for several millions yet to come. Large
appropriations had become to have
something attractive in them, and an
appropriation of seventy-seven millions
dollars was seventy-seven times more
attractive than any appropriation of one
million dollars. Mr. Plumb quoted fig
ures showing that a much larger pro
portion of money would go to the States
of the South and a much larger part of
it be supplied by the States of the North
and the West. The whole theory of the
bill was false that theory being that
the Southern States were not able to
give common school education to their
illiteratf s. He held that each State was
amply able to educate its own, and said
if this bill be constitutional, then there
were ro longer independent States, ex
cept as they exist in imagination.
Mr. Call spoke in favor of the bill. It
was idle, he said, to deny that the war
had destroyed the relations between in
dustry and property in the South. The
South had been left with disordered in
dustries and with landed property hav
ing no convertible value in money. No
people had every striven harder than
the people of the South to foster educa
tion or had given money to education
with more liberal hand. Mr. Call was
utterly unable to see the force of the
nice distinction attempted to be drawn
by the opponents of this bill between
money in the Treasury resulting from
taxation and money resulting from the
sales of public lands. Mr. Call recog
nized the constitutional power of the
general government to aid the States,
with their own consent, and the consti
tutional power of the States to aid the
General Government. Such aid had
been recognized as constitutional from
the foundation of the Government. The
South was not without self-reliance. Its
peoppa had already taxed themselves to
the utmost: but. their land was not, as
was the case in the North, a readily con
Mr. Morgan denied the statement
made in debate to the effect that the
Legislature of Alabama had instructed
its Senators to vote for this bill. A
memorial, he said, had been sent from
the Legislature to Congress, asking that
body to pass a measure in aid of educa
tion. An executive session was held and
the Senate adjourned.
House The following resolution was
iatroduced in the House today:
Resolved, That whenever the surplus
or balance in the Treasury, including
the amount held for redemption of U.
S. notes, shall exceed the sum of one
hundred millions of dollars, it shall be
and is hereby made the duty of the Sec
retary 'of the Treasury to apply such ex
cess to the payment of the interest bear
ing indebtedness of the United States,
payable at the option of the government.
The report which accompanies the
joint resolution says: "On the 80th of
January. 1SS6, as shown bv the official
"statement" of the assets and liabilities
of the Treasury of the United States.
there was in the Treasury and United
States depositors, including the amount
held for redemption of Lnited States
notes, and not including minor and
fractional siver coin classed as assets not
available, the sum of 179,689,662 in ex
cess of all other liabilities than redemp
tion of said U. S. notes It is believed
that this sum is largely in excess of the
sum required for the purpose of which
it is held, and that a considerable part
thereof should be applied to the pay
ment of the interest bearing debt of the
United States now payable, to the end
that public burdens be reduced and the
money not unnecessarily held to lure
agents and representative of the people
on to improvidentand wasteful expendi
The House proceeded to the considera
tion of business on the House calendar,
the first bell being that authorizing the
several executive departments to ex
hibit articles at the New Orleans expo
sition, and the pending motion being
one to lay the bill on the table. The
motion to table was carried 135 to
The next bill on the calendar was that

Atlantic and Pacific Railroad Com
pany. On motion cf Mr. Holman of Indiana
an amendment was adopted, providing
that forfeittd land shall ba subject to

division or objection.

suffered from an earthquake. Where
did Senators find authority for these ap
propriations on their theory of the Cons
titution':' And where, in their view of
the Constitution, found Senators author
ity for the sending of ships in 1847 to
Ireland, and in 1876 to France and Ger
many, to relieve distress in those coun- ,
tries'.' In 1S76 we had. given a million
of money to a centennial exposition; we
had last year given a good deal of money
to the New Orleans Exposition. Where
was the authority found in the Consti
tution for any one of these acts if not in
the general welfare clause? Where
was t he authority found to establish a
bureau of agriculture: send expeditions
to te North Pole; observe the transit of
Venus: to tax people to educate Indians:
establish and maintain a Congressional
library; tay pensions? "I am a States
rights strict Constitutionalist Demo
crat, " continued Mr. George, "and as
my constituency has been assailed on
this floor, I mean to prove that I am
with the fathers in their Constitution."
Mr. George then proceeded to argue at
some length the bearing and influence of
precedents on the question of constitu
tional objection, and quoted from Presi
dent Andrew Jackson's messages to
show that that orthodox Democrat had
found it neceesary to change his views
of the Constitution in obedience to pre
cedents. At 5 o'clock Mr. George yielded to a
motion for an executive session, and
the Senate, after a few minutes spent in
executive session adjourned.
House. In the morning hour the
House passed the bill to annex the
nothern part of the Territory of Idaho
to Washington Territory.
At the expiration of the morning hour
the bill went over, and the House went
into committee of the whole on the half
gallon tax bill.
Mr. Morrison stated that the purpose
of the bill was to compel the payment of
the tax at the time fixed by law and at
the rate fixed by law on all distilled
spirits removed from distillery ware
houses. From 18G2 to 1S68 the tax had
been collected in cash on gallons and
fractions of gallons. The 1868 system
of collecting through stamps had been
adopted, and it having been inconve
nient to have stamps for every fraction- -al
part of a gallon, it was provided that
not only gallons but parts Of gallons
also Bhould pay fifty cents tax. In 1872
it had been determined not to tax less
than a half gallon at all but to tax over
half a gallon at the gallon rates. It had
turned out that with a view to escaping
taxation all parts of a gallon were less
thau half a gallon, and the Internal
Revenue Commissioner reported that in
the last year this fraud had grown to
such an extent that packages which
contained less than half gallon fractions
exceeded those containing more than
half-gallon fractions by 500,000 which
would amount to a loss of $250,000 to
Mr. Wise, of Va., took the floor and
as it was known that he intended to re
ply to the speech made some tinie agd
oy Mr. Brady of Va., members crowded
around h'm to listen. He started -with
the statement that on the 16th inst. the
night session had been ordered for a
discussion of the Fitz John Porter bill.
In violation cf an implied if not an ex
press understanding, he (Brady) but
he was not permitted to proceed farther,
for Brady impetuously interrupted him
and exclaimed "The gentleman in mak
ing that statement states what is not
true, because I had a direct understand

only with Mr. Springer (Chairman of

Before Mr. Wise could make any re
ply Mr. Morrison came forward and de
clared indignantly "we have had quite
enough of irrevalent matter, and'I pre
test against it. I will have no more ( f
Mr. Wise made another attempt to
proceed, but he was again interupted
by Mr. Brady, with the exclamation
that he had been misrepresented here.
Mr. Wise said that he did not wish to
imitate or follow the bad example of
those who had gone before him. He
wanted to declare that he wished to oc
cupy the lloor, not upon the whiskey
bill, but in reply to his colleague's
Mr. Brady That is what I stated with
regard to the Fitz John Porter bill be
fore I made my speech.
The Chairman The gentleman hav

Chairman The gentleman is out of
order in the committee.
Mr. Wise Is it permissible under the
order of the House made yesterday for
me to 6peak Saturday?
The chairman said that that was a
question to be considered by the then
chairman of the committee.
"Well." said Mr. Wise. "I will take
the opportunity Saturday."
So the committee came back to the
consideration of the half gallon tax bill,
which after some further dissuasion
was passed and the House adjourned.
