At 2 p. m. Mr. Pugh took tho floor to J

ot the ship undertook to select- a crew
to man it without his advice and con
sent, he instantly headed a meeting. At
the ride of incurring the displeasure of
his honorable and distinguished friend,
he bhould call a reckoning so that we!
might understand where we are and
w hither we are drifting. Tho facts by I
which the Senate should be guided!
were few and simple. Mr. Duskin, the
I iistrict Attorney, was suspended on the !
17th of January last, and on the same
tay ;ur. iiurneti was uesignateu uy iuc
Prtsident to discharge the duties of
that office. On the lG:h of December,
the Senate being in session, Burnett
w as nominated to the Senate to get its
a lvice and consent to his appointment.

case in the nrstory of the Government
for eighty yesri where any such docu
ments as these called for in this resolu
tion were ever transmitted to the Sen
ate in executive or public session on the
order of the Senate. Senator Pugh in
dorsed all that the Senator from Ver
mont had said about Mr. Thurman. and
added. "Yes. Mr. President. Allen G.
Thurman is the greatest and the wisest,
and the purest American statesmon now
living. "' Thus allusion to Mr. Thurman
was followed by a loud burst of ap
plause in the galleries, such as had
greeted the mention of his name yester
day. Mr. Pugh continuing, said he was
surprised that the great Senator from
Vermont, should invoke the authority
of Senator Thurman to sustain iho
claim now made on the Attorney Gen
eral. He then read the letter signed by
Mr. Thurman as chairman of the iudif
ciary Committee, which was read yes
terday by Mr. Edmunds, calling for pa
pers relating to the removal of Gen.
Shaffer of the Territory of Utah. Mr.
Edmunds knew, Mr. Pugh eaid. that it
was still an open question before the
Judiciary Committee whether the terri
torial judges were subject to the power
of suspension. Mr. Thurman, as chair
man of the Judiciary Committee, sent
this request, under section 1,767 of the
! Revised Statutes, which makes territo
I rial judges subject to removal, but only
! by and with the advice and consent of
! the Senate. Mr. Pugh read from
speeches of Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Clay
, to show that the views of these public
i men supported 'the views of Mr. Ed
munds, mat removal trom office was a
legislative function under the control of
Congress. He also had read what he
considered a "luminous condensation"
of the whole argument of this question
prepewed. Mr. Pugh believed, by Chief
Justice Chase, and embodying a speech
which Senator Sprague delivered in the
debate on the Tenure of office act, and
in which the conclusion is reached that
the cases involved was merely one of
assent or dissent, and not a legislative
function. From whatever branch this
opinion originated, he defied the Sena
tor from Vermont to answer the argu
ment. Mr. Pugh concluded his speech by
saying that his object had been to define
tbe character of this conflict of authon
1 ty between the President and the Sen
i ate, and to fortify the views that had
always been taken by the Democratic
party, and to fortify it by the authrities,
commencing at the first Congress and
1 running down to the latest period. Mr.
Cleveland had no fear of an appeal to
; the people. He was responsible to them.
I He supposed the majority in the Senate

Strikers' Names Stricken Off.
St. Louis, Mo., March 10. The Mis
souri Pacific railroad today issued the
following circular to the strikers: "You
are hereby notified that your action in
withdrawing from the employment of
the Missouri Pacific railroad company
was a voluntary abandonment of the
service of the company and that you are
no longer in its employment, and that
vour names have been stricken from the
rolls. All such who are now about the
company 's premises are hereby notified
that they must at ouce leave the same,
to the end that this company may re
sume its traffic. (Signed) Win. Kerri

This order includes the delegation of
men appointei by the Knights of Labor
to guard the company's property. Al
though the officials 'will make no state

A r-iinn ni before Hie YVuyaandBIeans
ComniiiU'i-, Kic, Ktr.
Washington. March S. Civil Service
Commissioner Trenholm appeared be
fore the Ways find Means committee to
day to express his views upon sections,
of the Morrison Tariff bill tcuching rice. '
He said that the duty on rice imported
into the Pacific States was paid by Chi
nese laborers, who were consumers, and
was almost tiie only tax raid by the'
Chinese. Mr. Trenholm told of thV ill t
elfect un rice plantations in this country
resulting from disuse during the war
and said that if production should be.
impaired at this, tune it would be diffi
cult or almost impossible to re-establish
the sources of supply within a long '
period. The land was fit for no other
purpose, and the iaboring people would
drift away and could not be recalled.
Secretary Folger had made a ruling as
similating broken rice meal under the t
name of granulated rice, and that ruling
had the elfect of increasing the importa
tion of that class- of rice from elevea
million pounds to two hundred and
seventy-five million, and prices had
fallen from four to two cents per pound '
The law should contain a provision,
against the introduction of any rice at a
rate of duty that was not intended to be
applied to it. If it was the intention to
let in this rice at a lower rate of duty it e
would be better tOBtate it specifically in
tha tariff and not leave tbe rate to be
fixed by the unstable Treasury rulings- a
Almost the entire cost of the rice produo-..
tion was in labor ninety cents in -tbe"
dollar, he Bhould say. ' b
Mr. Trenholm told of a planter .wbq.,
had abandoned this plantation because
he found that a cross-road storekeeper
was selling East India rice to bis labor
ers. Mr. Trenholm admitted that he
had free trade ideas generally; but said
that if the protective pystetn were main
tained, then he should regard tbejtarifl a
on rice as a necessity. ProtectiOB.cn- .
hanced the costof all labor and this coun
try could not compete in rice cultore!'
with Asiatic nations with their cheap, y
labor, without including rice in the list
of protected articles. In answer to'titi'
Hewitt, he said that there should be, A .
uniform duty on rice, and another 'to
cover rice flour. ' I ,7i,
Mr. Hewitt pointed out that that. pa,
the present law. In effect, the difficulty
seemed to be in the interpretation ot tbd,!!r
law the discrimination -between true
flour and broken rice. r - jTli
Mr. Trenholm suggested' that' rice
might be graded by its size, to ibe -deter
mined by screens; all, .above a certain, j.
size to be regarded as rice and all beTow
that size to be graded as rice flour. "!'f
Representative Dibble, of S. 0,.dis .;i
cussed the matter from the laborera'
point of view, saying that labor etttJy
ployed in rice culture formed an appr-(
ciable part of the country's laboring
population, and was entitled to'consice" J
eration at the hands of the conimitte;u;
Representative Gay. of La., spojee of .g '
the excessive cost of harvest' labor ok"
rice plantations in his State as compared!
with cheap East Indian labor. He, saidjj :
that it had become the practice' for 1
European exporters to break; up'Whttl!
grains of rice so. as to take advantage of, f
the low tariff on 'that grade 4o this.
country. ' '-;';
Mr. Morrison, representing rice deal': r
era, eaid that the brewers consumed
broken rice to the extent of several
million bushels per month, and that thae
production of this country was too small : "
to supply the demand. It had 'beent
shown that Southern dealers bought. a
foreign broken rice, mixed it with their',.;
whole grain, and 6ent it West for sale; '
Rice was a necessity in brewing light U .
colored beers, as our native barley was :
too dark in color for the purpose.' Nearly
all the broken rice was ustd. inbrewingr-'.
and not one respectable grocer in ,Hsirrw
York could be found who would state
that broken rice was sold by thenar for1'
Mr. Louis Schade said that one brew
ing firm in the West used an amount of
broken rice equal to tbe.entire -produc- -tion
of the country. ,
H. B. James, representing a firm' of
New York rice dealers, also contended'
that the native production was toosmalj.
to meet the brewers' demand.
T. S. Wilkinson, of Louisian, planter
and miller, denied that Louisiana .deal
ers mixed foreign broken rice with the
horns product. He declared that there1 ': "
was no opportunity for fraud. , Im- , ,
ported broken rice was fit for food, and
two-thirds of the Louisiana' crop' this1'
year was a very little better than broken i:
