CLOSED WITH A KICK.
The Final Session of the Fiftieth
Congress Was Marked by a
ROW BETWEEN THE TWO HOUSES.
Threats of Force Were Hade to Clear the
LEGISLAriTB WORK AT THE FINISH.
Short Speeches From Carlisle, , iBgalls sad Ties
At noon yesterday the Fiftieth Congress
ceased to exist. The closing hours in the
House were largely devoted to vigorous
condemnation of the Senate because of the
inauguration arrangements. All of the
important appropriation measures were dis
posed of before the adjournment and signed
by the President The usua. formality of
turning back the clock was gone through
with. Nothing definite is known as to the
prospect of an extra session.
;srECIAL TELIGEJLM TO THI EISPATCH.1
Washxxgtox, March 4. The Fiftieth
Congress is now a thing of the past. Al
most the last hour of its existence was
marked by one of the most sensational inci
dents of this decidedly eventful .session.
All necessary legislation was practically
ended after midnight last night, with the
agreement on the general deficiency and the
sundry civil appropriation hills, the Senate
receding in almost every instance from its
amendments, which were the cause of the
disagreements, and virtually agreeing to the
propositions of the House.
Thus the French spoli ation claims were
knocked out of the deficiency b'll, and in
the sundry bill the payment of a portion of
a year's salary to the widow of the late
Chief Justice "Waite was abandoned, and
the House was almost permitted to have its
way in the controversy in regard to the use
of steam presses in the Bureau of Engrav
ing and Printing. The arrangement of the
conference committee on this matter, which
was agreed to, will not only prevent the
purchase of more steam presses, hut will
Lave the effect to gradually abolish them.
AN AUGKY HOUSE.
The House improved a large portion of
this time, however, by denunciation of the
Senate for its arrogance in assuming sole
direction of the inangural ceremonies, and
the almost insufferable impudence of its
employes in their treatment of any who had
business in their vicinity. This was begun
in the closing hours of the session of last
night by a resolution offered by Mr. Blanch
ard, of Mississippi, criticising the Senate
for placing the members of the House in
the fiith position in the inaugural ceremo
nies, that is, behiud the Judges of the Su
preme Court, the loreigu diplomats, the re
tired and active Generals of the army and
A deal of had feeling was exhibited in the
discussion of this resolution, and in the dis
cussion of this morning this feeling was ten
times intensified. Members of the House
who had attempted to penetrate to the Sen
ate end of the Capitol on business were
thrust back and insulted by the employes,
and several tales of this kind created in
tense indignation against the Senate.
This ieeling finally culminated in the
following resolution being offered:
Tuatl the Sergeant at Arms of the House
take the necessary steps to secure forthwith
to the members of the House and to the fam
ilies of the members of the House free access
through the corridors of tbo Capitol.
Mr. Anderson, of Kansas, moved to
amend the resolution by adding the words:
"And because of the arrogant assumption
of the Senate and the insolence of its em
ploye, the Sergeant at Arms is directed to
open the passage way between the two
chambers." A heated discussion followed,
which was only partially allayed by the ap
pearance of a Senate messenger announcing
that that body would accede to the demands
of the House.
At one time it looked as though the spirit
of rebellion would result in the refusal of
the House to participate at all in the inaug
ural ceremonies, hut the affair finally
passed off without more serious result than
the very vigorous protest contained in the
resolution of censure. The feeling was not
really modified, however, in the breast of a
considerable number of the members, espe
cially when they came to the Senate cham
ber to witness the inaugural performance,
and discovered that they were actually left
without seats and were crowded far back
into the cloak looms on cither side, where
they could neither see nor hear.
A number of the members did not make
their appearance at all, and with this
crowding many others left the chamber vow
ing that another session should see a dis
tinct understanding that the Senate and
House were to act jointly and equally in
the management of these affairs.
' Just before the House finished its session,
Mr. Reed, of Maine, the Republican leader,
offered a resolution of thanks to Speaker
Carlisle for the ability and fairness with
which he nad maintained his position. Mr.
Carlisle replied as follows:
Under the circumstances I will detain you
but a moment to return mj thanks for the reso
lution j ou have just adopted, and to express
my grateful acknowledgement of the kindness
and courtesj which, has characterized all our
intercourse with me as prcsidinc officer oft He
House. Alter continuous service for three
terms Ivi ill leave this chair to-day with senti
ments of the warmest friendship and most pro
found respect not only for the gentlemen who
compose the present House, but for all that
have preceded them. And while the termina
tion of my official labors and responsibilities
affords of itself no occasion for regret, I can
not -without reluctanco sever the relations
which lm e existed so long between us.
Looking back on the scenes of excitement
and conlus.on, which necessarily occur from
time to time in a body like this, it is impossi
ble not to remember with regret many unpleas
ant incidents and hasty words; but it is grati
fying to know that no feeling of resentment
survives to disturb our friendly personal rela
tions hereafter. And now, gentlemen, in de
claring an adjournment, which closes the first
century of our legislative history unaer the
Constitution, 1 may be permitted to express the
hope that when another hundred years shall
have rolled around, the Union of these States,
under which the capacity of the people for self
government has already been demonstrated,
may still endure applause, and that the rep
resentatives of the people assembled in this or
in some greater hall may have a. constitutency
as intelligent, as patriotic, and as free as those
which sent us here. Renewed and long con
j Shortly after midnight the Senate went
into secret session. The doors were reopened
at 2:50. The conference report on the sun
dry civil bill having been presented and
agreed to while the doors were closed the
Senate took a recess until 9 SO,
"When the announcement was made in the
Senate to-day that President Cleveland had
no further communication to make to this
Congress, it then being 11:53, Captain Bas
sett walked up to the clock, eyed it closely,
and then apparently satisfied that it was do
ing more than its required duty, performed
the time-honored act of turning the hands
back (eight minutes) amid a general lou J
What were left of the members of the
House on the floor at 11:55 formed in line
and marched over to the Senate in quick
time, inasmuch as they reached the doors of
the Senate Chamber a't 11:53, by the revised
version as provided by Captain Bassett.
At this point the following resolution was
offered and adopted:
Resolved, That the thanks of the Senate aro
due. and aro hereby tendered, to Hon. John J.
Injralls, President pro tempore of the beau .e,
for the uniformly able, courteous and Impartial
manner in which ho has presided over Its de
liberations. IHGALIS' ANSWEB.
Mr. Ingalls made a brief reply in the fol
Senators Conscious ot a serious desire to de
servo your approval, and aware that that would
be secured only Dy constant devotion to yonr
service, the Chair assumed, with diffidence, the
great trust conferred by your suffrage, which,
to-day. he relinquishes with tho profoundest
gratitude for ths honor of the resolution of
commendation; and declares that the Senate
now stands adjourned sine die.
After the inauguration ceremonies the
Senate was again called to order in special
session and the following new members
sworn in: Barbour, of Virginia; Higgins,
of Delaware; McMillan, of Michigan;
Marston, of Hew Hampshire, and Wolcott,
of Colorado. Mr. Morton addressed the
Senate as follows:
Senators I will enter on the dis
charge of the delicate and (at times) im
portant duties of the position to which I have
been called by the people of the United States,
without experience as a presiding officer; and,
therefore, bespeak in adTance the indulgent
consideration whioh you have been always
ready to extend to the occupant of the 'chair.
As presiding officer of the Senate it will be my
effort to administer the rules of proceednre
with entire fairness, and to treat every Senator
with the courtesy and consideration due at all
times to the representatives of grea. States in
a legislative body. 1 hope that our official and
personal relations will prove mutually agreea
ble, and that our duties will be discharged in a
manner to sustain the dignity of the Senate,
and to add to the prosperity and happiness of
this great Nation.
The Senate then adjourned until to-morrow.
extka session pbospects.
In the closing moments of Congress, and
amid the turmoil of the inauguration, there
is little heard of the extra session from
members caring to be responsible for a pub
lic expression of opinion, now that the time
is almost here when the new President will
have to say whether there shall be a called
session or not, but it is safe to say there is
verv little change of conviction among a
majority of the Republicans who have
been committed to the extra session project
for some time.
President Cleveland had a very busy
morning. He remained hard at work until
3 o'clock, and was up and at work again at
8 o'clock. The members of the Cabinet
were with him most of the time. A vast
amount of business was accomplished.
A large number of bills were approved,
the most important being the act amending
thp inter-State commerce bill, the sundry
civil appropriation, the Indian appropria
tion bill, the deficiency appropaiation Dill,
the postofEce appropriation bill, the army
appropriation bill, and the agricultural ap

shapeliness, luxury, style, quality and
fine workmanship. They recommend
themselves to all by their remarkably low

the stamp of perfection; yes, perfect
perfection and the make and fit will
compare favorably with the work.of the
most artistic of tailors, while the mate
rials will please the most exacting ot
purchasers. The finest products of for

We have now on view and ready for sale
thousands of the handsomest Overcoats for

consequence they secured the cream

boys the coming spring and
you surely would like to
have your boys dressed
tastefully, especially when
it is to be done with very lit
tle money indeed. Nowhere
else in this wide world will be
found more elegant Overcoats for
Youths and Boys, for it is indeed very
doubtful whether any clothier in this
country has made the preparations for a
spring trade we have.
