The direct tax bill which has gone to the president provides, in substance, that the secretary of the treasury shall credit each state and territory a sum equal to all collections by a set-of- f or otherwise made under the terms of the direct tax act of 1861. All moneys still due the United States under that act are remitted. A sufficient sum of money is appropriated to be paid when the legislatures shall have accepted the sums in full satisfaction of all claims against the United States on account of the direct tax levy. 1 he money appro priated to meet individual claims is to be held in trust by state authorities, six years being allowed for the reception of these claims.

Agreed to. Th question then was, as sutsd by Dawes, to strike out all provisions of th house bill from page G8 to pag Hj, and from pag 137 to pag 118 (relsting to sis agreements with Indian tribe) and insert a substitute, covering pages 148 to the end of th bill. Dawes declared that the house proposition was a nonenity; began nowhere and ended nowhere; there m as not a word in it confirming any one of th agreements with the Indians, and th senate substitute had been prepsred with care. Gorman said, for the first time in the history of legislation, seven or eight treaties were tacked on an appropriation, bill to be ratified. All that was mown of th bouse proposition wsa that it ratified all those Indian treaties, appropriated about six million dollars and made a provision for the disposition of between five and six million acres of public domain in a way which he (Gorman) could not explain. While the question was being discussed, Jones of Arkansas moved to add to the senate .substitute a provision to pay the Cbwctaws and Chicksaws 12,911 in exchaoge for lands in Indian Territory now occupied by the Cheyennee and Arapahoe, uofjer executive order.

Senator George Hearst, of California, . died at his dene on Nw Hampshire avenue at 9:10 II had been Ul long time tonight. and in December lost vwt to New York city to consult with Dr. Charles Ward. The physician round tnat be afflicted with a complication of diseases resulting primarily from serious derangement of the bowels. Acting npon his physician's advice, he returned to bis family in this city and yielded him himself entirely to medical .rest meet. Absolute quiet and rest was strictly enjoined and his official duties lightened as much as possible. Notwithstanding the fact that he received the benetit of the most careful nursing and most skilful medical attention, his steady and uninterrupted- decline was observed, and it was seen several weeks ago that bis els was a hopeless one. Within the past day or two there was s change. This evening he sank rapidly and the family was summoned to his bedside. Those present were. Win. K. Hearst, the senator's son; J. O. Follans-bee- , of California, the senator's partner; Dr. Ward, the nurse and several domestics. The senator's hands were held by Mrs. Hearst and the physician, and so quietly and easily did he pass away that Mrs. Hearst did not know that he was dead until so informed by Ward. He gave no indication whatever of pain or discomfort and seemed to the anxious watchers merely to have fallen asleep. Dr. Ward said tonight that the senator displayed a wonderful fortitude in his il!ness, and had not during its entire course uttered a complaining word or expressed the least fear as to the result. The senator's death was communicated by the private secretary to the sergeant-at-arm- s of the senate and subsequently communicated to that body. The preei- ,; dent was also promptly informed.

Taking the press as a whole, the tone is calm, with the exception of the Colognu uazette and other advocates of the policy, which are bent on making political capital out of the matter.
