HOW THE LAST BALLOT STOOD.
Tote of the Texas Delegation Mills Sticks
to St Louis and Charlie Stewart to
Washington Feb. 24. Mr. Chandler
(Rep.) rising to a question of personal priv-
leges called attention to the fact that the
Senator from Florida (Mr. Call) in debate
last Thursday had uttered words personally
offensive to him which he had not then
heard and followed up that breach of order
by changing and adding to the official re-
port of his remarks a paragraph still more
offensive. He (Mr. Chandler) deemed it
iiis duty before replying to the assault
made upon him to bring tte Senator's con-
auci neiore tue senate tor such action as
might be deemed just and suitable
for such transgression. He there-
fore offered a preamble and reso
lution stating that the Senator
irom Florida had charged him in debate
with the personal responsibility of the out-
raging of women and murdering of chil
dren and destruction of happiness of
nousenoius in tue soutti ny men wno were
emissaries behind him anil that die Sena-
tor had in addition inserted the following
paragraph which he had not spoken :
I'he blood of Saunders (it the evidence
Shall show his death was in anyway con-
nected with prosecutions in United States
Courts) will rest on his conscience. The
shrieking ghosts of outraged and murdered
women and children the victims of
the wild lust and passions of
a race who owe all they know of religion
and civilization to the Southern white peo-
ple and not to the Senator from New Hamp-
shire will disturb his sleeping and his wak-
ing hours. Like Banquo's gliost it will not
down und the ocean will not wash his
blood-stained hands from the guilt of the
rape and murder of these tendsr white
women and children."
The resolution condemns such action as
a breach of privilege for which the Senator
(Mr. McCall) is censured and orders tin;
words so inserted and paragraphs so added
to he stricken from the report m the Con-
Mr. Call defended his cour.se in the mat-
ter asserting tint he had in debate ex
pressed substantially the same idea as wa
expressed in the additional paragraph. He
had simply changed the phraseology as lie
nail a rignt to no ana tnerelore the state
ment nuide by the Senator from New Hamp
shire was not true it was the lust time m
all his eleven years service in the Senate
that he had heard it claimed that it was not
adniissable for a Senator to correct to ex-
plain to amplify language used by him so
as to express more clearly the idea mtenueil
to he conveyed.
Senator 'Chandler repelled the in-
timation ' that anything which lit
had stated was not true. He de-
sired to have the decision of the Sen
ate on the question he represented. He
asked no protection for himself. He only
asked that the Senate should decide
whether such language might be used by
one Senator in relation to another Senator
and whether the Senator from Florida was
to be permitted with his pen alone in his
room to write out additional charges and
send them to the Public Printer to be pub-
lished throughout the country as if they
had been actually spoken in the Senate
Chamber. He sent the original of the ob-
jectionable Darasrranli bv a naee to Senator
Call and asked whether that was his writ
Mr. Call said this was an extraordinary
performance on the part of the Senator
from New Hampshire and he repeated the
assertion he had in the debate clearly and
distinctly charged that Senator with the
responsibility for the death of Saunders
and for other iniquities committed in the
South. The report when it came to mm
was not he said a full and accurate report
of his remarks and he was authorized by
the Committee on Practice of the Senate to
correct and to transpose And he had done
no more than that. After debate on the
objection Mr. Chandler's resolution went
ONer till toniorror.
A communication from the Attorney
General with the report of Marshal Mizell
as to the assassination of Saunders United
States Deputy Marshal in Florida was pre-
sented and referred to the Committee od
Privileges and Elections.
The Senate proceeded to business on the
lndr and nassed bills authorizing the
construction of a railroad and other bridg -t
over navigable wuters as follows: Across
the Arkansas river connecting Little Rock
and Argenta Ark ; between Pierre Hughes
county and Stanley county South Dakota;
across the Arkansas river at Pendleton

the two races on the basis of the scho o
population of each; that while on the basis
of illiteracy the colored schools at the
South ought to secure $38000000 and the
white schools $13000000 these figures (on
the other basis) would be reversed and the
white schools would receive $16000000 more
than the colored schools.
Mr. Blair asked whether it was not proper
to apply the morey so that it would reach
the white children and colored children
Mr. Faulkner replied that the bill had
been justified on the ground of its believing
illiteracy existed in the States and yet when
the fund got into the States one-third more
would be given to white children
than to colored children (on the basis
of school population) while the
illiteracy of colored children was
40 per cent greater than that of the
white children. That contradicted the
principle Jof the bill. Mr. Blair
said that there was a misapprehension
of the bill. There was a manifest error
and he was about to explain but Mr. Faulk-
ner declined to yield the floor for that pur-
pose and proceeded with his argument. He
declared that the bill instead of its being
(as Air. iSlair had described it) a new
declaration of independence would be
national declaration on the part of Con
gress of antagonism to the com
mon school system and would in
vite friction and discord between the
sections. He referred to the fact that the
State of Kentucky which would receive
$431(5000 under the provisions of the bill
tue state oi Arkansas winch would re
ceive $2803000 and the State of Texas
which would receive $3920000 (all of
which Stat s had been in favor of the bill
some years ago) had now instructed their
Senators to vote against it and that the
Legislature of the State of Georgia which
would receive $0443000 (the largest
uistnDution oi any state in tne
Union) had recently postponed Indefinitely
a resolution approving the bill. So that
four States he said that would receive
$17185000 under it an amount equal to
what the entire North and West would re
ceive through their Legislatures rejected
its provisions in the interest of education
and of self government. He had perfect
mini ana ausoiute confidence in tne pres-
ent and future of the South.
He did not intend the active energetic
and enterprising people of the State of West
Virginia should be Held before the Amer
ican people clothed in rags and crying
about their poverty and humiliation. If
the constitution did not prohibit the pass
age of the bill a sentiment of justice at
least would demand that the distressed
farmers of Dakota the miners of Colorado
ana JNevada tue lumbermen ot the .North-
west should not be called unon to contri
bate to the education of the children of his
State. He quoted approvingly a paragraph

Washington Feb. 25. The dinner given
tonight by Mr. Andrew Carnegie to the
President and Cabinet and tbe delegates
and officers of the International American
Conjress was undoubtedly the most elegant
affair of the kind ever given in Washington
and perhaps.in the United States." The ar-
rangements which were novel and unique
were planned by him but as he had been
compelled to be absent from the city he
left the details to be carried out by a friend
Mr. William E. Curtis.
I he curtains ot the new large dining
room of the Arlington Hotel were literally
banked with flowers The tables were cir-
cular in form feet in diameter and
covers were laid for forty-eight gentlemen.
The center ot the table was a mammoth
lour leaved clover decorated with maiden-
hair fern over which was suspended a
monstrous silver lamp the brilliancy
cf which was softened by festoons of sea
weed that dropped into the maiden hair.
The menu was engraved in line script
upon heavy beveled paper and every article
ol mod was described in plain JMignsn.
During the dinner a vocal and instrumental
solo by noted artists was given instead oi
the ordinary orchestral music. There were
no formal speeches.

The visitors were taken charge of by the
Executive Committee of citizens assisted
by an auxiliary committee of City Council-
Shortly after 10 o'clock Gen. N. N. Bing
ham called for order and nominated ex-
Gov. Green of New Jersey Chairman of the
occasion. Gov. Green welcomed the visi

the tune ot the Constitutional Cen
tennial Cclebraiion in 18S7 and
Gov. Ladd of Rhode Wand marched
from the hotel to Carpenter's Hall on
Chestnut street below Fourth a distance of
a little over a mile. As each member
of the Congressional delegation passed un
der the historic portal his hat was removed
in veneration. The chairs in the
old hall were not sufficient to
seat all those who came and after Con-
gressmen were seated a large portion of the
aysemhluge remained standing. Gov
Green presided. Richard K lietts the
venerable Actuary of the building was in
troduced and made a short speech of wel

Congressman Breckenndge made a

nations whose bulwarks were founded upon
force. It was not so with us he added.
Our country our government was founded

The Harder of Five .'.Men from East Texas
in Indian Territory.
Pahis Tex. Feb. 25. The Federal au-
thorities here are on the track of what they
believe to be the murder of five white men
in the mountains in the vicinity of Talahim

party of five men in a wagon drawn by-
gray horses passed thrni gh that town.
They claimed to be from Eastern Texas ai d
were hunting and prospecting in the Ter-
ritory. Recently an Indian on seeing the
horses recognized them and intimated that
the owners were foully dealt with. The
men when they left Talohiro went east and
it is believed that they were murdered in
the mountains of that country. The officers

the matter as to who are the perpetrators
