tires on the Democrats.
llcprcsentallvc Kennedy's speech yes
terday evening, In which bo bitterly de
nounced Senator Quay as a crimi
nal and attacked tho Bcna'o as
a htdy, was tbo subject of
general comment. Most of It was un
favorable to Mr. Kennedy. It wa3 de
clared tbat lie was ccnsurablo for at
tacking tbo otber branob of Congress,
ns well as denouncing a Senator on tbo
floor of tbo House.
Senator Quay declined to talkfurtber
than to say tbat his friends In tho House
would look after him there. Ho him
self would not dignify tho charges,
or give Importanco to Mr.
Kennedy. Tho Senate would
not notice tho matter. If tho IIouso
thought that sort of thing was proper
nnd dlgnlflcd, well and good. Tho
Senate would pass Itjovcr In silence.
Messrs. Quay and Cameron wore In
consultation In tho cloak room for an
hour this morning, presumably over
what they termed Kennedy's malicious
In the Senate Mr Quay sat silent
save tbat be onco roso to address th
Chair, but falling to get recognition sa
down again and onco more wrappod
himself In thought.
""Tho llepubllcans ot the House, pu;
itlculaiy the l'ennsylvanlans, wcr
wonted nnd angry. They spoko o
Kennedy In thu most uucompllmcn
lory terms. They roaard htm
ns a mallctous and malignant
marplot. They sec clearly that some
thinr must be dona to counteract Ken
nedy's blow as It will bo very damaging,
perhaps ruinous, to tho Republican
party in tho Gubernatorial campaign
now pending in that State.
They therefore hold a consultation
this morning and decided to present
nnd urge tho passago of a resolution to
cxpungo from tho Jltwnl Mr. Kennedy's
speech, They will also move to
censure Mr. Kennedy for his abuse, as
tJey term It, of Senator Quay and of
the Senate Itself. Those resolutions
were to be presented by Mr. O'Neill, the
Father of the House.
Mr Kennedy made his speech at a
li'c hour yesterday afternoon. There
werg only about thirty Congress
men present. Mr. Burrows, Speaker
pro teuton, was in the chair.
Kennedy read his speech from
manuscript. Ho read rapidly and In a
low tone of votes. The Associated
Press reporter could not hear
what he said sufficiently well
to make a report. Ho caught
enough to know it was important, and,
after adjournment, got hold of the
manuscript and from tbat made the re
port which appeared In the morning
The Speaker o tm. said there was
no precedent for calling a gentleman
speaking to order unless some one on
the floor called the Speaker's attention
to it. It looks as though this would be
a good place to make a precedent.
Mr Kennedy's speech did not appear
In the Heard this morning, being with
Le'.i for revision.
Can It be tbat he hasn't the courage
ci bis mouth?
freoator Quay may say something
rlx ut the matter In the Sjeaate. He
Itt'ti't decided his course yet.
The matter didn't gstupia the House

fpcteh yesterday. He was opposed to
the reciprocity Idea. His Ideas on the
subject are fairly summarised In the con
eluding paragraph of his speech, m
Make yottr tariff, ss ymtlhtn right. I,et
others mske theirs as tliay think right, and
when yon reach, as England has reached,
the position that yon can devour the mb
Msnc e of other nations better by free trade
tbn yott ran preserve jtmr own substance
liy protection, then change rout law.
In the course of his remarks the ven
erable statesman Indulged in the usual
Republican claptrap about the Dem
ocratic party favoring Kogllsh as
against American interests.
Ho said It would not be polite, and
might not be true, to say that the Dem
ocratic party was on the side of Kog
land, but It was certainly polite and
credible to say that England was on the
side of the Democratic parly. The
distinction was obvious and valuable.
The Republicans laughed a nulet,
cdatc, Senatorial laugh at this sally by
the New York export wordmongor.
Mr. Kvarts then announced his theory
and plan to be- Unity on tho Inside,
Independence on the outside, should bo
the watchword with which to conjuro
the Amorlcnn people; unity In trade,
Independence of foreign manufactures.
The venerable orator was In good
shape yesterday. Ills gosturos wcra
animated, uis voice was clear ana of
good volume. Ho spoke for a consid
erable time without any ovldcncc of
weariness either on his own part or that
of bis fellow Senators of both parties,
who listened with great Interest to tho
speech. Truly, Mr. Evarts Is the "Old
Man Eloquent" of the present day.

On account of the absence of Mr.
Cooper, Mr. Lewis requested of Chair
man Morrill that the investigation be

night. The absence of both Mr. Good
niehl ami Mr. Cooper, he said, placed
him in an awkward position.
Judge Sawyer said that tbe absence
of Mr. Cooper was unfair to the com
mittee. It was a hardship to the com
mittee, be said, for Mr. Cooper to take
four of Ave davs in preparing certain
kinds of testimony and tbea remain
away vtben tbe committee was prepared
to bear tbe testimony.
Judge Wilson said tbat Captain
Lemon had returned to Washington

The nomination of Post master Roes to
be Commissioner of the Dlsttlct to suc
ceed Mr. lllne was pretty generally die
cuseed last night ami this morning, am!
tbe general sentiment was one ot
praise for the selection, tinged
with a shade ot regret that
the city would lose so able a poet
master, and one who bad brought the
ofllce to Its present high state of effi
ciency. Nothing but commendation
could 1 heard for the new apoIntee,
and, that be would prove as satisfac
tory a Commissioner as be had a post
master, was generally accepted as a
foregone conclusion. To day there
A COXTIKUOfS RTKB.VH or VISITOHS
to Mr. Rom' oltlce to congratulate htm
upon bis selection as one of the cltv
fathers, and those who could not call
personally sent their congratulations
and rceards either by mail or messen
ger. One of the most pleasing testi
monials of the regard In which he
Is held and which to Mr. Ross
was more thankfully received tban any
other congratulations was a number of
Icttcts from graduates of the George
town Law Sjchool, and bis former pu
pils, who, owing to the vacation, could
not tako any organized action, but were
compelled to show their appreciation by
personal letters ami cans.
Tbat be thould 1 remembered thus
by his old pupils was to him a grtce
ftil and grateful recognition, and when
HIS OM) ILLINOIS ntiKXiw
came to pay their respect, tbe new
Commissioner's cup ot joy was filled to
over How I rig.
When Tiik CntTic reporter tendered
bis congratulations, Mr. Ross smilingly
received him. "I hardly know," he
said, "what to do or say. I thoroughly
appreciate all tUemany kind words that
have been said of my appointment, ami
1 am thenkful to all my friends for the
Interest tlitv have taken In securing my
selection. "When will I leave the omce?
Not until I have been confirmed and my
successor has been selected. You see,

Next to the sallsfsi tlon with which
Mr. Ross' nomination for the Commls
sionersblp was received was tbe re
sultant speculation regarding
HIS sect KkSOU AS t-OSTUABTEB.
Now that the rich prize of the Cum
mlssionersbip slakes have been cap
tured by Mr. Ross, tbe next event is
tbe running of the Post mastership
handicap, for which the entries are
already numerous. Tbe conditions un
der which nominations have or will be
received for thts race limit tbe entriei
to those of pronounced Republican pre
dilections. Tbe favorite thus far is

an old resident in tbU city, who was one
of tbe first organisers of tbe Republl
