House of Representatives.
WASHINGTON, March 9.Mr. Blackburn,
presiding in the absence of Speaker Randall,
and Mr. Foster, from the committee on ap
propriations, reported a bill for an appropri
ation of $1,533,445, deficiencies for the ser
vice of the government for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1878. Referred to the com
mittee of the whole.
A night session for debate only was order
ed for Monday next. Mr. Kelly then replied
to Mr. Garfield's speech of a few days ago.
He explained the causes which prevented
him replying to Mr. Garfield's first speech
for over one hundred dayshis own serious
illness, and the attempted assassination of
his son, and he thought it hardly just in the
gentleman to send to the country the idea
that he, Kelly, had been one hundred days
in preparing a reply to his speech.
The imputation that his (Kelley's) speech
was a manuscript speech was utterly with
out foundation. In regard to his support of
the resolution endorsing Secretary McCul
loch's contraction policy, in December, 1865,
he admitted he had made a grave mistake,
and on the 3d of January following had
raised his voice against contraction, and
made the prediction with which he had
opened his speech of the l."t of November,
that if contraction were pursued the condi
tion of affairs that is now upon the country
would come. As to the bill demonetizing
silver, he was (although chaiiman of the
committee on comage) as ignorant of the
demonetization of the silver dollar as Sena
tors Blame and Vooihees,then members of the
Garfield's allusion to his (Kellys) com
munistic speech at Youngstown, Ohio, and
his threat that labor would take capital by
the throat, that statement was like Garfield's
own statement, the creation of a distempeied
and ill-governed imagination. As to the in
terference of members of the Hou&e in
favor of his renominatiou, he asserted that
no man sat the House who had ever, to
his knowledge, written such a letter. It
there were, he asked him to say so.
Mr. Foster made a movement as if to rise,
Yes, said Mr. Kelly, one letter was written
by my friend, Mr. Foster. We were most in
timate, then, by reason of the proximity of
our seats. I hud before him, and before my
friend Mr. Danford, a good many letters re
ceived in connection with efforts to nomi
nate another man than myself. My friends,
who wrote, seemed troubled that those who
were seeking to oust me were representing
that Governor Hayes desired my defeat tor
having gone into Ohio, as they said, to elec
tioneer for William Allen It was arianged
that my friend, Mr. Foster, who lepresented
in Congress the Republican candidate for
President, should write a letter that would
answer a double puipose. [A ripple of
laughter started at the^e woids, and soon
spread through the Democratic side, extend
ing to the Republican side,
Mr. KellyI pray you Mr. Speaker to
bear mind that if duty linen is to be
washed here to-day, I did not introduce the
Mr. Crittenden Let the washing go on.
Mi. KellyMy filend Fo.stei wrote a let
ter to the gentleman who I named, South
worth, a confidential friend of my own, say
ing he had no authority to speak foi Gov.
Hayes, but that he was his congressional
representative. [Laughter.] That he knew
the kindly lelations between the governor
and Kelly, and. that he had reason to believe
and was fiee to say Governor Hayes desired
the return of Kelly. [Laughter.] That
letter was given me. I can recollect but one
gentleman to whom it was shown, and that
was the gentleman to whom it was ad
dressed, who read it and, at my request.
handed it back to me.
Mr. Kelley described his relations with his
constituents, who had elected him ever since
1360, who knew his faults and foibles, knew
he would sometimes roll out the r'san
inheritance probably trom his Irish ancestry,
knew he had a will of his own and that when
suffering trom dyspepsia was sometimes
rude. Who. in fact, knew him in rem and
who would be astonished to learn the influ
ence that had been brought to bear on them
to secure his election. As to the word
"trick," it was a very offensive one to him,
but if he were to use that word to designate
anything he would apply it to the case of a
member who in the House uses an offensive
expression to a colleague and then, without
that colleague's consent or knowl
edge, tones them down in the record
so he could not have them in full to reply to
or perhaps to move to expunge.
Mr. Foster said Mr. Kelly had stated cor
rectly the substance of the letter he had re
ferred to. He only rose to state the reasons
he had for writing that letter. Mr. Kelly
seemed annoyed at the effort making to pre
vent his nomination, because it was alleged
he had gone to Ohio, in 1875, and had
stumped the State against Gov. Hayes* and
they charged it would be disastrous to re
nominate him as the Republican candidate
in Pennsylvania. Mr. Kelly and himself had
a good many talks about it and the conver
sation he thought had extended to Mr. Gar
field, certainly to Mr. Danford. The first
suggestion was that he (Foster) should go to
Philadelphia, on his way to New Yoik, and
while there he was to be serenaded.
(Great laughter.) His duties in Washington
prevented his going and being serenaded
[laughter] by a band of music, and being
called out by the fire company to which Mr.
Kelly had originally belonged. [Laughter.]
However, he had always had and still had a
high respect for the gentleman who had al
ways been his friend here. He did not be
lieve Gov. Hayes cared two cents whether
Mr. Kelly were nominated or not, or that he
would have felt unkindly if that gentleman
were nominated. He (Foster) had desired
to-see Mr. Kelly elected, and he had there
fore written the letter, and he had been glad
to learn from that gentleman, it had been of
good service to him. [Laughter.]
Mr. Kelly said he desired to throw a little
light upon the question as to who wanted to
be nominated. It was known to some peo
ple that when the campaign had opened it
had been thought desirable that a Repulican
member of Congress, a greenbacker and con
vertible bond man, who had been re-elected
at the last election, should be sent to In
diana, Ohio and certain sections of Penn
sylvania where the greenback heresy, so
called, was predominating. At the request
of the State committees of those States
he consented, as the Republican member of
Congress favoring greenbacks, to go to
Indiana, Ohio and the infected districts of
Pennsylvania (laughter), but he denied he
had excited riot and talked communism.
Mr. Garfield disclaimed any reflection on
Mr. Kelley growing out of the state of his
health, and said it was only a little curious
to him that the long illness, which usually
brings gentleness, had not infused a little
more of the spirit of gentleness into the two
hours' personal attack on him. If he had
misrepresented one word or thought of the
gentleman he owed him an apology and
would make it anywhere and at any time.
He quoted from the remarks of Kelley on the
bill to demonetize silver, showing that gen
tleman did at the time know the purpose and
effect of the bill, his words being
Jinn Sickles bniirihrti.
WASHINGTON, Maich 5).The Senate pub
lic lands committee to-day. heard evidence
regard to the McGariahau claim to property
in California, known as the New Idria quick
silver mine. Judge Jeremiah Wilson. E. C
Ingersoll and Senator Carpenter appealed
for McGarrahan. and Judge Jeremiah Black.
David S. Willis, Iowa, and Chief Clerk of
the Land Office Curtis for the New Idria
company. Mr. Wilson said the defendant
intended to show that e^ ery decision in favor
of McGarrahan had been obtained by the
use of money. After a discussion relative to
the admission of evidence of this character,
McGarrahan was asked if he had ever given
stock based on his claim, to John Hickman, ex
member of Congress from Pennsylvania. He
replied he never had. Witness further said
Daniel E. Sickles performed services for me,
I did not agree to give him any compensa
tion, but subsequently I gave him an interest
in my claim. He would have acted for me
if I had never given him a dime. Never
gave James Wilson, ex-member of Congress,
of Iowa, either stock or money. There was
some talk between Sickles and myself about
taking Edwin M. Stanton into our business.
Sickles said he did not think it was necessary
to have Stanton's aid. Stanton was not at
torney general at that time. I ma.de no at
tempt to buy up the attorney general's
Mr. Wilson offered in evidence several
letters from McGarrahan to Mr. Frank, sec
retary of the Panoche Grande company,
which he claimed would show McGarrahan
and Sickles' attempts to operate upon Stan
ton while attorney-general, for the purpose
of securing his influence. One of them stat
ed that he and his friends were willing to
take Stanton into the same boat with them.

tions of curiosities,"
To show that he had not drawn from his
inner consciousness, as Mr. Kelly asserted,
what he had said about that gentleman's
communistic speeches in Ohio, he procured
from the library and sent to the clerk's desk
a volume of the Cincinnati Commercial,
from which the clerk read a special dispatch
describing the meeting at Youngstown. He
(Garfield) submitted whether, on the state
ments read and on similar statements in the
Cleveland papeis, he was not justified in
speaking of the gentleman's communistic
speeches in Ohio.
As to the gentleman's last campaign, he
knew it was 'geneially understood that an
expression in favor of the gentleman was
solicited. He (Garfield) had been consulted
on the subject, and if he had had the same
faith in the restoration ot sound principles
that the others had. he would have been
glad to join in the efforts made by those
The formal discussion was closed, and the
House went into committee of the whole on
the consular and diplomatic appropriation
bill, Mr. Cox of New York in the chair. The
bill appropriates $1,030,935, a reduction of
fl02,4 9 from the appropriation ot last
year, and a reduction of $177,462 from the
estimates of the state department. The
salaries of ministers to Great Britain, France,

Mr. Sengleton, a member of the committee
on appropriations, explained that the com
mittee had reduced the salaries of the four
pr.ncipal/mmisteis abroad, fiom $17,000 to
$15,000, an amount amply sufficient, con
sidering the work to be done by them. He
referred to the fact that the consul at Lon
don received $2 a head for every American
seaman shipped at that port and every dol
lar ot that tax upon commerce was used at
the consulate and not one was covered into
the treasury. That was what made the
position of consul so much sought aftei.
Mr. Cox. Ohio, inquired whether the law
did not require all such fees to be turned
into the tieasuiy.
Mr. Singleton leplied that it did not,
Mr. Hewitt, New York, thought the gentle
man tiom Mississippi was mistaken. All
fees collected for shipping seamen were
either paid into the treasury or accounted
for in the accounts ot the consulate.
Mr. Singleton continuing .said the appio
pnation committer had endeavored on one
hand to guaid against any letrenchment
which might Impair the seivices, and on the
othei to prevent unnecessaiy expenditure of
public money. His own opinion was that
the present system of seivice might be much
simplified and that two oi thiee ministers
stationed at some central points in Europe,
with a competent corps of agents would
answer every purpose.
After a speech by Mr. Hubbell in favor of
the extension,pf our foreign commeice the
committee iose and the House adjourned.
it was ordered they all be printed and go
into the record. Judge Wilson said they
were all of a general character, showing that
money was paid, federal appointments se
cured, and laws changed in the interest of

The Santillan Swindle.
SAN FBANCISCO, March 9.Of the propo

Chronicle this morning says: The Phila

land. They bought stock on speculation.
They did it with their eyes open, knowing
the claim was a fraud and they ought not to
profit by it. There cannot by any possibility
be a single innocent purchaser, and to give
the public lands away to such schemers as
these stockholders are is trifling with the
public interest. The government ought to
relieve those whom it has wronged, and to
be able to do so it ought to be very sure that
the claimant has at least some equity in his
case before it votes away its substance.
Santillan has neither right nor equity and
impudent beggars should be turned away.

placed-in irons on the main deck, and fas
tened io a stanchion. About three in the
morning, a deck trader, a Chilian, approached
the prisoners and accused one of stealing
cheese from his tent. The man protested
his innocence, stating it was impossible, he
being in irons. The trader insisted,
and cut the man's throat, and after
wards cut his head off and threw it
overboard. The other passenger, who
was bathed in blood, was helpless and too
terrified to call assistance. The murderer

the wrist, broke the bone across hisjuiee and
thus freeing the body, threw itfinto the

VIENNA, March 9.The statement ac
companying the bill for the credit to be
submitted to the delegation, says in the
present position of affairs it is not impos
sible the government will be obliged to take
extraordinary measures for protection of the
interests of the monarahy. In this case the
government must be in condition to lower
the expenses, and therefore ask for sixty
million florins. It is not prepared to expend
this in completing the equipment of the
army, but it is intended to afford the govern
ment to insure the monarchy against danger
VIENNA, March 9.Count Andrassy in the
statement accompanying the bill for credit
to the delegations says: It was quite nat
ural that in the arrangements made during
the campaign, political interests were driven
to the back ground by military interests.
Under such circumstances the interests of
Europe and individual states cannot come
out scathless. .Public opinion has gone
from one extreme to another, but at the
Congress, the situation may appear
in a less disgusting aspect, ltussia
has repeatedly declared she drew
the sword not from selfish
motives, but to improve the lot of Christians.
We must demand such a umitation of the
result of the war, whereby neither our own
nor European interests will be ignored. We
must provide the best possible solution, but
not a mere postponement of the questions
arising out of the relations of the powers. If
the Russian arrangements relative to one
half of Turkey, come into effect, what will
be the prospect of the other half. To what
extent can Turkey be reduced, and still
retain a chance of continued
existence. How guarantee the
executions of reforms of such gigantic diffi
culties, only Europe acting in concert can
surmount. A single State seeking to settle
them a its good pleasure must be in a posi
tion to reckon with a European coalition
which, however, Count Andrassy was careful
to add, did not exist. .It was not to Russia's
iiterest to make a saofrfice for things which
'do not contain within tfiBaselves guarantees
of stability and to which Europe was bound
to refuse recognition.
Consequently it was justifiable to hope
that the Congress would lead' to an agree
ment. Austria enters the Congress to de
fend Austria and Austrian and European in
terests. Austria has reserved her whole
strength for the moment of the conclusion
of peace. She asks a money grant to safe
guard her interests against any surprise not
relying upon mere political arguments,
when one power cornea fully armed on the
scene. Out request is not an act of hostility
against any power nor powers, nor a mere
idle demonstration, but an act of precaution.
LONDON, March 9.It is rumored in clubs
and political circles, but it cannot be said on
how good grounds, that Lord Lyons is like
ly to succeed Lord Derby as secretary of
state for the foreign department, in case af
fair^ between England and Russia again be
come threatening. It is even regarded as
not unlikely that the change may be made
before the meeting of the congress, in which
case England would be represented by her

Great consternation prevailed in the city.
The only places that still hold out against
the revolvtionists were Azua, Santo Domin

place was on the point of capitulation.
THE ABBITEB TO TAKE A BEST.
BEBLIN, March 9.Bismarck's health was
little improved by his recent vacation. He
worked nearly as hard as if he had been in
Berlin, and returned in no condition for
work. As soon as the Chancellor's substitute
bill is passed, he will take another, and, this
time, real vacation.
