flutter. If he lm hl- nay. He U determined to
remvui In session all night If ncecsaary to riiort
,t (n-iiiMtriiw it online There I no doubt that
i compromise as to the mode of appointing
ioiil f departments has licen agreed upon.
I ho gem-rsl Impression seems to bo that the
Hoard of Assistant Aldermen will do restored
mil tlf appointing potvor placed In tho hands
jf thi Mayor and tho present Presidents ot tho
two llo.uds nt Aldermen. The member of tho
r.inuiiittep are very reticent about It, however,
tmt Hie) all ngrro that matters liavo lieen
i-r.uii.-il. and It Is probable that tho report will
be -unci by all tho incnibers but Mr. Ticmann.
.WiiiiKj'if.-Tho committee tiro still In session.
Miey are having a fierce struggle over tho twentv
tlvh action, l'roposltlons to glvo the appoint

lo-n Hoards of Aldermen, tn tho Mayor abso
lutrl) . and to the Hoard ot Aldermen, tho Mayor
M ronlirm, together with about a dozen others,
hare bi-en voted down. Senator Woodln, tho
chairman of the committee, sa) that It wilt bo
ltnHsiblr, from present appearances, to got
th roui! h with the charter to-night so that It can
lit reported In the morning.
One thine Is settled. The Custom House gang
rr beaten at alt point", and when the charter U
repotted It will recognize Mayor llaveuieyer as
I ho brad of thu CltvUovernmcnt. It Is probable
that the section retaining crttaln heads of de
partments, and which was stricken out In tho
A-einhly, will bo restored.

The Tweed committee met this morning and
screed to employ John H. l'arsi ns as counsel.
The Senators have recovered from thelrpasslon,
and It Is not probable that a resort to pistols and
coffee between Woodln and Johnson will ho had.
In fact, Senator Woodln this morning oxpresscs
lilmself as very much satlsOcd with the course
the matter has taken. He Is satisfied that the
whole object of tho thine Is not to Investigate
Tvvoed, but rather those five tainted Senators
about whom so much has been said In the news
papers. This kind of talk, ho sa)s, has cone far
enough, and he shall inslot upon a full Invest!-till-n.
The committee, he says, must repoit,
and unless tlicy exonerate I'lm from nil suspi
cion .if corruption In cntiiiretloii with former
lc."s it Inn somebody will eel hurt.

by Hlsi-hoXshclm and (ioldsmlth of the English

Tlu via all the money he received of llirlow.
Nothing was ever said to Mm about legislation
or Inlliii-r.i Ing It directly ur Indirectly, and ho
had no suspicions that the suits were In any
way r imeeted with mutteis before thu Legisla

fie repeal of tho t'l.is-ICcailori act mid tho p.is-M.-e

ami a proper Hoard ol Directors. Ho denied

Krle Hallway matters. He did what he could In
a proper mnnu -r to Influence legislation In fmor
of thu Krle stockholders, and that was all. He
denied Imlng had anything to do with getting
up the Attoruey-deneral's bill. He denied hav
ing any knowledge or suspicion that money was
lueil to Inllucuce legislation I.L't winter.
Mathew Hale lestlBed that he was employed
by Hen Harlow last winter, who Informed him
at tho time that It would be necessary to pro
cure some legUlatlon, and that he and l.ymnu
Tiemaln would have to take charge of thai
matter, as Mr. Smith was In the Legislature
Harlow einplo)cd all the counsel and Uxcd their
compensation. He gave a detailed history of
his connection with the leglMutluii of I ait win
ter. His principal business was to appear be
fore the committees to urge the repeal of tho
ClaHSlfleatluii act and the passage of the Attorney-General's
till), 'i hat bill, which has heieto
fore been supposed to have emanated from tho
fertile brain of the Altornc-eiieral, wjs
drawn by Mr. Tremaln. The prominent an
tagonists they had to meet were Judge Seldcn
of llochester, Shearman of New York, Judgo

Tweed on Friday and Saturduy In New Vork,

all'jwed to appear here by counsel, hut must
co-no in periou.

Mr. Donohuu's gas bill came up for n third read
Ing to-day, but was laid asldo on tho ground
that certain portions of It were unconstitutional.
It seems to h.ifc always been unconstitutional
to pass a bill through the Legislature to protect
tho consumers against gas monopolies, and be
foro this bill Is again railed up It Is probable that
the gas companies uf New York and llrooklyn
will furnish convincing proof that this bill Is no

Till: lNlU'llA.tCE WAn AGAIN.
The Insuranco war broke out afresh to-night.
The committee reported Mr. Hendee's bill ad
versely, when that gentleman mined to disagree
with the report. He charged that the commit
tee was slimed over by the Insurance compa
nies, and was mn In their Interests, and that Ms
bill had been slaughtered In their Interest. Ho
said that Mr. Tohey. the Chairman of the com
mittee, had to-day told him that the bill would
be reported favorably. He was proceeding to
criticize the action of the committee when ho
was called to order by Mr. Hosted.
Mr. Tohey replied, denying all the charges
- made by .Mr. lleudee, nnd saying that he was In
tlie h.ililt of making statements on the floor of
i the llouso whloh ho knuw to be untrue. He
said that a non-forfeiture hill had been report
ed by the commllteo which was far stronger
and better than the bill Introduced by Mr.
Mr. Weed reviewed the history of the Hendee
bill, stating that It was In tho handwriting of a
1 certain lobbyist, and thai on tho day following
the one on which the bill was Introduced a cer
tain Mr. Mooro took a copy of it to the printers,
and had fifty conies printed In exact Imitation
of tho Assembly bills, with the Introductory
number upon it. He more than Intimated that
there was some ulterior object behind all these
assaults iiimiii tho committee. He asserted also
that the lil.l which the committee had reported
favorably wns a far stronger nnd better bill for
thf Insured than the on.- Introduced by Mr.
Mr. White, a member of the committee, also
defended the committee.
IILNULK AI-TEll THE COMMITTEE.
Hendee again took the floor and ssld that the
history of tho Insurance Committee for the last
two weeks In connection with tho bills beforo
It was anything but creditable to tho commit
toe. He did not believe that that committee
had a right to smother his bill or that of any
other member, nnd III up onu In the interest of
the Insurance Companies which they repre
sented. Mr. Van Cott, another member of the com
nilttee, d. feuded Its action and hurled Hendee's
charges back Into Ids teeth.
Heudeo Interrupted Idm, denying that he hud
ca.st any Imputations on the committee, but
wound up bv saying that the action of toe com
mittee on his bid liidb'.ited that there was soma
Inlluetice to work In the committee room famr
j ublu to liiMiranic companies.
Mr. Jacobs also defended the committee. He
sild that when copies of bills Introduced In this
House svero printed and circulated among In
terested parties before members had an oppor
tunity to examine them, for what purpose he
knew not. It was time tu pause and Inquire why
It was done. He did not desire to Impugn any
man's motive ; but there was something pecu
liar about the history of the bill. The bill which
tho committee had reported favorably had be
hind It no lobby iiitlueiice. and contained all
that was good III Mr. Hendee's bill and several
others on the same subject. It was In fart thu
ttroiigcsl non-forfeiture bill that could be dratt
ed. He called on the llouso to pause beforo
overriding mid Impliedly censuring ono of Its
committees at thu whim of one member.
After some further discussion the vote was
taken on Mr. Hendee's motion tu disagree with
tlieadtcrsc report, and It was ot uy a vote of
lid to 51, the members of the Insurance Commit
tee not voting.
This is looked upon as a victory fur the com
mittee. Now let them And out and expose thu

bia county was brought beforo United Stntos
Commissioner J. K. Towiuend, at Jacksonville,
charged with being the loader and Instigator of
tho late (.hooting nutrago at LnkoClty. Owing
to some Irregultrltles In the papers, the prose
cuting attorney, Hon. A. A. Knight, asked that
the case bo dismissed, whereupon the Commis
sioner discharged tho prisoner from arrest and
dtimlssod the witnesses. Immediately there
' after on afUdarlt of Sherman H. Conant, United
States Marshal, now warrants were Issued for
' the rearrest of Hush, together with Messrs.
Duval Pelph, Frank Helph, ami W. 1'. ltoberts.
I The warrants were Placed In tho hands of Dep
uty I'liltcd Rtntes Marshal Thomas McMurrny,
who proceeded to Lake Cltv. and on Vrlday, the
15th Inst., brought tho prisoners before tho
court. The prisoners were representi-d by Col,
W. Ives of take City, D. 0. Daw kins, Arthur
llassnct, and II, HUbee, Jr.. of Jacksonville.
The prosecution was conducted by United
States District Attorney Knight. Tho caso I elng
called, the defendants' counsel moved to quasii
the Indictment on grounds of Illegality, Tho
arguing of the motion occupied the rest of tho
day. The Commissioner desiring time to ex
amine Into the caso, adjourned the court till
9 A.M. Saturday.
tin SaturUay the Commissioner sifted that ho
had fully examined Into the law and merits of
the motion tu ipiash the Indictment, and had
derided to deny tho motion. Thereupon, both
parties announcing themselve ' ready for the ex
amination, the District Attorney called to tho
stand Mr. W, W. Moore, In whose name the caso

Mr. Moore, on being sworn, deposed as fol

ot the present motiib t was at home. I am Postmaster

In the Jurisdiction ot this Court. On the night of the
Mh, at alHiut 11 o'clock A. M.. attack wsa made on my
Ionise. Th- attack was made on the southern side of
the house. It commenced by a loud noise produced bv
knocking at the dour of my illutng room. A light was
burning on Ihe mantel In my bedroom, near the clock,
- 1 arose and started to aieirtiln the cause of the
I noise, thinking It was my brnlher-ln law, but my
I wile stopped mo and lotd ine not to go out. At Ibis time
the tiring commenced. 1 should ihlnk about Iw, Ire or
. Ihirteeu ahels were fired at that side of the boose.
' Aftertlila the) left, and 1 returned tu mr bedroom and
, was going to put oul the lUlit and go to bed again, but
my wife would uot let me put tbe ughl out. About this
' tune t heard more tiring slsmt a square on. tn a ahort
time I beam tneiu again near Ihe depot, and not long ,
afur again near tho square, and told my wife 1 thought -
ilticr were coming bark. Near 3 o'clock they came back
and fired into my bedroom.

and the rest lodged in and alKiut the window frame.
Ihey fired sll Ic-iieiiier In a volley. I remained quirt
for a time, and after my wife, who bad fainted, re
turned lo consciousness, we went to the window and
looked out, but Urn parties bad gone. I thin look uiy
children and carried them up aiaira, and Mrs. Moore
went lo the door suit railed for help, and Mr. Hall and
Mr. llkbiower came over. 'I here was uo further dis
turbance at my house that night. The reason f my
now being amy from my post otbee Is that 1 do uol
think I would be aafe lu returning since this attack hat
iH-inmade on me. 1 was engaged tn the lawful dls
charge of my duties tt the tune of the attack. There
were about twcntr-sine or Iwentv-two shots fired Into
my houseman. Thissttacg and attempt to Injure me
has compiled me to leare my post oincc. and I have
been compelled tu discharge some of my fClclal duties,

Defendants' counsel hero objected to the line
of evidence as being Irrelevant and not having a
bearing on tho case, as It did riot tend to shnvv
any conspiracy on tho part ot the defendants.
I have no personal or direct knowledge of any of the
parlies who committed the outrage.

WABiiiNrjTO.v, March 19. The tnnnlfoltl
exiKMujro by Tiim Hun of tho frauds and corrup
tions of the Dlitrlct King are at last producing1
their effect, though In a most unexpected quar
ter. Tho Hon. Henry D, Cooke, (lovcrnor of tho
Dlstrlot, has boon but tho nominal head of the
Hoard ot l'ublloWorks.hla time beinz fully ocou
pled with other business. In this way tho Vloa.
President, Alex. It.Mhophertl, has hail full con
trol ot all tho vast contracts for grading and
paving stroels. Indcod, the whole system of
Improvements which havo been undertaken by
the board was simply Bhopherd'a plan.
Tho exeoutlon of It has boon under his
nolo direction, and of course haa been
manipulated for tho advantage of lilm
solf and tils friends. That nn unparalleled rock
lessnoss has marked all the actions of the board
Is tindcntablo. It Is apparent to any poreon who
takes the trouble to rldo over tho city and aee
the work that hag been accomplished-tho
rhangThg of grades. lte nnd tho unworkman
like manner In which even thing baa been dono,
nov. coo kr pim.vrimro.
Gov. Cooke has, It Is said by his friends, never
approved these reckless nnd extravagant meas
ures and has In nqulctmannorproteatcd against
them, cautioning Shepherd and his associates
on tho board that they would Und themselves
deeply Involved beforo they know what thev
were about: but Shepherd Insisted nn being al
lowed to go on In his own way. He Is a man of
great will, energy, and resources, nnd often
manages to carry his points by slmplo bluffing,
(lur. Cooke Is a man of decided will also when
he makes up his mind, but he Is fond of his
case, a lover of good cheer, and disposed to
wait for trouble rather than meet It half way.
He had, moreover, great confidence In Shepherd
and other membeis of tho Iward. and did not
feel disposed to Interfere with their plans, es
pecially when he did not give his undivided at
tention to the details of the work : hut as be pre
dicted. Shepherd soon had tho board and tho
District Irretrievably In debt, and the Governor
In time found out that It was a great deal wnrso
than he had dreamed It could be. Tho Indebt
edness amounted to millions nre. to several
millions nnd so much work had been begun
that must bo finished that w Ith the most careful
and economical management It would require
soveral millions more to do It.
nOV. COOKE FIlinilTRNFP,
This frightened him. He knew that the debt
of the District nlroady exceeded the limit
placed by act ofCongiess, and when they applied
tu that body last session for au appropriation
to cover work done around tioverument reser
vations, ho saw how difficult It wns tn obtain
money, how tho mass of figures which Shepherd
hail got together In n report wero shown to be
false and fraudulent exhibits, and all thla opened
his eyes and convinced lilm that It was time to
put his font down nnd rati n halt. This ho de
termined to do. This ho has done. He deter
mined that Shephrrd wn responsible for tills
reckless extrava.-snce nnd criminal waste of
mnnoy. ami th t he could 110 longer be connect
ed with the Uovcriinient of the District with
Shepherd tn run It. He has therefore made up
Ids mind to resign. He Informed Shepherd of
this fact some time since, nnd save his roasons
for his course In so plain and truthful n manner
that It exolted Shepherd's Ire, nnd he replied In
languago which the Governor took exception to,
nnd the consequence was n little scene which,
but for the Interference of friends, might thou
and there hare resulted tn n very big row.
OOV. OOOKK DKTCRMINKII TOHESION.
The Oovernor Is determined not only to resign
himself, but he Intends that Ihe composition of
tho Hoard of Public Works shall be changed
also. He has the Influence with tho President
to secure all ho undertakes to have done. Tno
slate Is now made up as follows: Matthew O.
Kniery, ex-Mayor of the city. Is to be appolntod
Governor and President ot the Hoard of Publlo
Works ; his friend and fellow pillar tn the Stato
church. Mr. Norman, ts to lie made Vice-President
ot the Hoard, nud Shepherd, no longer n
boss, first goes South and then to P.urope fur tho
benefit uf his health. Whether the chnuiro of
masters will result well fur the people of the
District reinnliis to be seen, but aa the Irishman
remarked at Hull Hun," Faith, we'll take the risk
of n change. This Is very uncomfortable, and
wo can't make matter much worse by moving."

Washington, Sluri li 10. An nltcnutlon
occurred yesterday evening nt the National
Hotel In this city, between Senator Ingalls and
Hon. ltobert Mcllratncy, both of Kansas, which
came near being serious. The tumble between
tlie.o gentlemen originated from the tart that
McllMtney recently sent a communication to
tho Vice President, asking that a memorial sent
to tho Senate by certain citizens uf Kansas dur
ing the closing hours of the last session be re
ferred to the Committee on Privileges and Elec
tions. This memorial, It will be remembered,
relates! to the validity of Ingalls's election, nud
reiiii'tod tho Senato to Inquire Into the effect
which the York transaction had on the olectlou
of the present Incumbent. Mcllratney claims
to rcpiesrnt these memorialists, and he Individ
ually asserts that abundant prouf ran be forth
ooni'ng to show that Ingalls was simply a ron
federate In the conspiracy which elided In thu
downfall of "Subsidy Pomeroy." Making this
assertion In the presence of Ingalls, last evening,
the Senator became belligerent, nnd threatened
tho attorney with personal violence unlets he
retracted In the preeenro of witnesses the asser
tion of his collusion with the conspirators
against Pomeroy, High words passed on both
sides, when the parties were finally separated
by mutual friends.
The feeling among Kalians politicians here Is
bitter In the extreme, nnd every effort will be
made to get up a rase against Ingalls, not only
on the conspiracy count, tmt also because of
his connection with the bribing of Judge De
Ichay, which latter ts a matter of record.

A llroof unknown origin wns dlscovcreil
nt Bill last night 011 tbe third floor ot the five
story brick building forming the rear extension
of to Ueekmau street. The building was occu
pied by Waldron 4 Ilros., manufacturersof horso
trappings. The Are was first discovered by LTlen
Mahoney, who was working In the room In
which It originated, and the progress of tho
flames was so rapid that she waa badly burned
on the left arm, and barely escaped with her life.
Mr. Waldron and six of his workmen who wero
working on the fourth floor escaped tu Ihe roof
nnd thence crossed to the roof of the adjoining
buildings to a place of snftly. The firemen and
the police of tho lleekmsii street station, under
the command of ("apt. Carrry, worked heroically,
but the flames obtained the mastery, nnd In a
short time the entire building was enveloped In
fire. Waldron 1c Ilros. loss on stock Is estimated
nt 10,ft.0. Insured for fr,,.VH. The building,
owned by J, P. Travers, was damaged IVW; In
Hired. Tho first door of the front building, n five
story brick, was occupied by J. P. Travers A Co.,
dealers In cordage nnd twines; and the second,
third, fourth, and fifth floors wero occupied by
Charles Summer, doaler in h iina-opathlc med
icines. This building was completely Hooded
with water nnd filled with smoke. The stock of
Travers Co. wits damaged f5.(l, mid that of
Charles Summer $T,tss. The building was owned
by J, P. Travers, nnd wns damaged l,oOU. Tho
amount of Insurance could not bo ascertained.
The origin of the fire ts a mystery. Kllen Ma
honey says that the first she saw of tho Ore was
the dames bursting out In one corner of the
