THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHffl&TGIf, El 0O9 THURSDAY, 'MAY 2J, 1S96.
WEEK IN WASHINGTON.'
Sunday. May lO.-It was stated to-mRht that
the early return or Minister Terrell to Wash
ington from his Toxas home is moro signifi
cant than tho Stato Department authorities
aro willing to admit. Thoro have been sev
eral conferences between Secretaries Olucy
and Herbert These furnish a strong basis
for reports that information has lately been
received from Charge a'Aflnires Kiddle to
the effect that since tho withdrawal of tho
American fleet from Eastern Torlcoy affairs
liavo grown worse, and further outbreaks aro
threatened. It is not denied that Mr. Ter
rell has been summoned to Washington to
consult with rererer.ee to matter relatiiiR to
Ins olbV. Mr. Terrell was granted two
months' leave or absence, and has been in
this country about three weeks. His visit
just now indicates that some new phase has
'probably aiisen requiring his attention, and
it may be that Secretary Olney prefers this
Government to bo represented at onco by
the Minister whoso course at Constantinople
has been so favorably commented upon, and
whoso judgment and procedure during the
delicate situation several months ago, com
manded the approval of the State Depart
ment. Hun-day, May 11. Tho Attorney-General de
clared that a member of Congress unseated

o Naval cadet by Congressman Cobb, of Ala
bama, who was recently unseated by the
Jlouse. Mr. Cobb selected and designated
Ins candidate sooti after March 4, and a few
weeks later -was deurived of his scat. The
attorney-General holds that hisappointment I
was valid and shall fctaud, and tliat ins buc-u-Esor
jb not entitled to tho cadetship.

accomplishment of the end the Conference
lial in view. The interview rras most pleas
ant itml satisfactory, and a cordial iiiler
cbaugcof opitiioiiB took place. TiieProsidcnt
paid the Conference was a gratifying exhibi
tion of a wide public stntiuieut in favor of
arbitration, and he had been surprised that
curb an a$umhlago of men could havo bouii
brought together from romot distances to
give oppression to their opinions, ile hoped
lh friends of arbitration would continue to
c ucale the pcoplo along the Hues indicated,
ai- I said they would Jiavo his cheerful co

Fujiay, May 35. Tho conferees of the two
Houses on the Indian appiopriation bill
agreed to allow the amendment made in the
tSrnato in regard to Government aid to sec
tarian Indian schools to stand, but it is be
lieved thpt when reported to the llouso the
cgreemeut will not be accepted. If r.ot,
snnthcr conference will bo ordered, proba
bly with instructions to stand by the pro
tibion as originally made by thelionse. The
hetiHtc amendment cave two years' extension
to the sectarian schools. Representative
Morse, of Massachusetts, reported favorably
from the Committee on Public Buildings
and Grounds a bill to prohibit the. Eale of
intoxicating liquors in tho Capitol building.
An amiMid incut is added giving the courts of
the District of Columbia jurisdiction over
-violations of the act. J he report says that
the committee is of the opinion that the fialo
oi liquor in the Capitol giveb offense to a
lame mid rospccluhle number of the citizens
of the United Sluice, aud is a just cause of
t ati'wmy, May 3C. The Department of Jus
tice lcphed to the request Air a decision on
the quoklion of tho legality of fees paid to
not ni ice. in-viow of the new Jaw. The De
partment btated that the question was one
that -ould not be determined by that Dc
jihiuootil. inasmuch as It was not one that
affected jn any way the Government of the
Tin tied Sta'e. It furthcrmoio stated that
the question was one for settlement bo
tvuon the notaries and the pensioners alone.
Under tho law, all United States officers
H-t sweitr pensioners free of charge, but
the notaries made the point Umt, since-they
were not confirmed by the b-natc, tboy weo
not rcntty United StMes oflicerf, and hence
could exact the tt-fes. The qin-fetioii ornotary's
fee isaaumll one to each pensioner, but since
Ihetc are about 8,000 in the District tho
aggregate fee will reach 2.000. Under the
new law each pensioner swears out a voucher
before a notary public, instead of applying
at the Poiimou Agencv. as heretofore, where
iho service wn executed free. He then
ecud the voucher by mail to the agency, aud 1
ruowvttfi, by return num. his pension check,
fco ibt-ie f no need tor him to run the gant
let of the Kuion-!li&tks who make it a
bogittcfM to lend tho old meu away after thoir
chocka have been made out.
rytr OF THE CORRIDORS.
Thoro is a good deal of doubt as to the time
Vrhen the Washington monument, erected by
tbo Govornmunt at Wakefield, will be mi
vailed, as woll as to tho character of tbo cere
monies. Col. Wilson, who had the work of
superintending tho erection of tho shaft, has
completed his task, and the State Department
now has tho matter of uuvaiiing in charge.
KcprosculaUve Jones, of Virginia, in whoso
district tbo monument is located, has been
nctivo in trying to have some timo designated
for tbo ceremony, but so far has received no
enswer from Secretary Olncy. Bercntly a fiuo
iron railing was placed around tho monument
lo protect it from relic-bun tore, and tho turf
Smoothed down and new ground made close
around tbo base of tbo monument. It is pro
posed, if possible, to have the President and
Cabinet attend tbo ceremonies, and some uie
iiugoished speaker selected to deliver tho ad
dress. Tbo distance down tbo Potomac, and
tho fact that Wakefield is rather inaccessible,
ay prevent a largo crowd from attending.
ko indications now aro that tbo day will be
namod in a short time, and that the ceremonies
till take place some time in June.
vftiite a Eensation in tho House was caused
Inst week by the majority report of tho House
Elections Committee which pi oposcs to unseat
Congiessniau Walsh (X. Y., D.) and seat John
Murray Mitchell, Republican. The report S3ys,
in part, referring to tho methods of Tammany:
"An organization to biibe aud corrupt voters
existed in the Twenty-fifth, Thirtieth, Thirty
fifth, Thirty-sixth, aud Forty-fourth Election
Districts of tho Second Assembly District. In
these five election districts aro found many of
the lodging-houses of tho city. Theso houses
charge from 10 cents to 25 cents a night for
beds, aud lodgers arc in the maiu transients
who havo no fixed abode.
"It appears that a well-organized system of
bribery was carried on in the lodging-bouses
byau organization known as Tammany Hall.
The contesteo is a.Vico-Prcsidcut of that or
ganization. Its plan of operation was peculiar,
and while it existed in all parts of tho Eighth
Congressional District, and sought by every
possible means to secure tbo election of con
testeo lo Congress, yet the evidence of its opera
tions in these five election districts is exceed
ingly plaiu and conclusive."
The report details tho methods of alleged
bribery, and concludes: "Tho amount or price
in almost every instance was previously ar
ranged aud thoroughly understood. It varied
from $1 lo $2. The Tammany Hall organiza
tion, being a 6ccret society, had every facility
for forming a conspiracy to carry elections by
bribery, as its meetings were held in 6ccrct, aud
its Captains were secretly instructed."
Senator Wolcott, of Colorado, looks enough
liko Secretary Olucy to be bis brother. Ho is
much younger, for ho is only 47, aud his thick
brown hair and hts heavy brown mustache
seem to havo no gray iu them at all, and are
in sharp contrast with tbo grizzled hair and
mustache of Secretary Olney. But there is a
striking resemblance, nevertheless, for the Sen
ator is about tho Secretary's bight and build.
They aro both athletes, and show it in their
walk, their gestures, and all their movements,
for they are light on their feet and graceful in
manner. The Secretary is not so ncrvons as
the Senator; but otherwise the resemblance in
their movements is striking. They have the
samo long, broad, deep hoad firmly set ou a
short neck and strong shoulders. As orators
they are very much alike, except that the Sen
ator has much the more eloquent voice.
W. 2f. Morgan, Commissary-General, United
States Army, tells a good story -about himself
and Geu. Grant, of which tho point is rather
on hin&fclf. Jn telling it the other day Gen.
Morgan said be was with Grant as his Chief
Commissary for a long time. Ho was with
him at Appomattox Courthouse when ho was
preparing the terms of the surrender. Ho had
boon with Grant at City Point iu 3S01, ivhon
the latter wanted to go up into the Valley aud
"3 went with "him," said Gen. Morgan, "and
while up there tho news camo that Hampton
had waded in and carried off our beef herd,
consisting of 2,600 bead of the finest cattlo
that ever put hoof to grass. Well, whon that
news came Grant groaned, aud 1 groaned in
sympathy, for, of course, I was his Chief Com
missary. There was a man named Stanton in
Washington, who occupied tho position of Sec
retary of War, and be was a man of pretty
quick action. S.mtcn telegraphed lo Grant,
'Who is responsible for the loss of that beef
herd?' Grant telegraphed back, I am.'
That ended it.
"When we got back to City Point." ho con
tinued, "Giant said one day, in the presence
of my?elf aud a lot of other3, that he regarded
mo as tho best Commissary in the world. 1
asked how so, and bo replied that I not only
fed his army, but the enemy's as well."
Gen. Morgan nlso tells Bomo interesting
things about the Appomattox surrender. Ho
was in the room. As he -went in ho greeted
Lee, saying, "How are you, General?" Ho
had served utidcr Lee at Harper's Ferry in tho
John Btown raid, and had also been at
West Point when Lee was tho Commandant
there. "While tbo preliminaries were being
arranged." says Gen. Morgan, when ho tells
how it all happened. "I -went over to the side
of the room and smoked my pipe, and now,
when I hear so many people indulging in self
congratulation over owning tho identical ink
staud and tho specific pen which were used on
that occasion, 1 raise ni3 trusty pipe aloft and
proudly exclaim : 'This is the pipe 1 smoked
when Lee surrendered to Grant!'
" Gen. Lee, after the surtendcr, asked Gen.
Grant if the latter could feed his army. Grant
turned to mo and iuquiicd, 'Colonel, can you
feed Gen. Lee's aimy?' I akcd Gen. Leo
how many men he had. Ho said that he could
not tell ; that the divisions were scattered, and
that scarcely a company had a commissioned
oflicor at the head of it. I united him if SS.OOO
men would be about the figuic, aud be said,
Yes, tay 25,000 men.'
"While 1 was talking with Gen. Heath,
another man camo in and said : Well, General,
wo licked yer, didn't wc?' That was rather
uncalled for just then, but Heath said: "Ycf,
you licked us.' Then our man remarked:
'That's all right ; no haid feelingF. Come on,
lot's take a drink.' And wc did."
Miles Ciowscy, tho Texas member. tcHs some
good stories aud just as uilliugly on himself
as on bib neighbor. Talking ton knot of news
paper men the other day lie said : " When you
uowFpaper fellows hear a good story nowadays
aud arc iu doubt about the authorship you just
sitddlo it onto hip. 1 don't mind it myself, but
every paper down in my district prints it, and
the opposition organs double lead it, aud then
draw a moral lesion fiom it. The chances aro
it's used in the Sunday-schools for a text. And,
then, the boys get things so mixed. Sometime
ago, continued Mr. Crowley. "I went out iiiMi-ck-ty;
put on a low-necked suit and flashed u
diamond btud iu my front. When I was intro
duced to the bwell fcel at the party, one of iho
laiics cried out:
"Is this Mr. Ciowley? Do you know, pic
tuiod you as a great, big. tall man. with a som
brero and jpursand a belt, with a Colt's revol
ver? '"May I asli where you obtained that :m

"There, you sec how it is? This here news

Senator Palmer's address was devoted to a
eulogy of the manly and soldierly qualities of
Gen. Hancock and contained a beautiful trib
ute to his wife, who was his biographer. In
conclusion ho said :
"Now that wo havo ceased to struggle

confidence that tho men of every section aud
of all parts of tho great Republic aro equally
patriotic aud alike willing and ready to defend
the integrity of tho Union and tha honor of

And clnng hersilvcr bull;
Go-ling-, go-lnng, go-Iinglelingle;

The cowa cumc slowly home;
And niotherHoin;s of lonK-sOIe yeara.
And baby joys and childish tear?,
And youthful hopes nod youthful fears,
When the cows come homo.
With riitfilc, rnnglc, rtngle,
By two and threes and singlo
The cowa are coming homo;
Through the violet nir we see the town.
And tho. Summer sun n-Hppiug down;
The maple in the linzel glade
Throws down the path a longer shade,
And tho hills ure growing brown ;
To-riug, to-rung, lo-ringloHngtc,
By threes aud fours nnd single
The cow CMtnc slowly home;
The same sweet Rounds of wordless psalm,
The same swott .1tiitc-dy ret and c.itm.
The samo sweet scent of bud and balm
When the cowa come home.
With n tinkle, tanklc, tinkle.
Through fern nnd periwinkle.

A-loitcring in the checkered stream,

O'er hanks with buttercups a-twinklo

And up through Jlomory'd deep raviuo
Came tho brook's old song nnd its old-time sheen,
And the crescent of the silver Queen,
When the cows come homo.
With a klinglc, klangte.klinglc.
With a loo-oo and moo-oo and jingle,
The cows nrc coming home;
And over there on Merlin Hill
Hear the plaintive cry of the whip-poor-will;
Thedewdrops tic on the tangled vines,
And over the pophir.4 Venus shlnca,
And over the client mill;

With n ting-a-Iiiigand jinglo

Of long-gone souks nnd flowers nnd rain.
For dear old times come back again.
