MISSOURI EDITORS FORAGING.
Atchison County Enthusiastic for John
Washington 3Iay 20. The majority of the
resolutions presented declare William E
English duly elected member of the Forty
eighth congress. Converse spoke iu sup
port of the claim contestant, and Hart pre
sented grounds on which the contestce
bases his claims. Lowcry advocated the
claims of the contestant. He alluded to
certain language made by J. S. Wise of
Virginia, when the Ferrcll Paul case was
under consideration to the effeat that the
Virginia bourbon was riding into congress
on the back of ono of Harnum's Indiana
mules. Ho supposed that remark was
rounded upon the legend that chairman
Itanium had once telegraphed to Indiana
concerning some mules. In view ot the
spectacle which the gentleman from Vir.
ginia presented on the tloor, he apprehend
ed that if ISaruum had been telegraphing
to Virginia for an animal of the lower or
Jcr, ho would have telegraphed for one
still more brutal iu its instincts than a
mule. Wise, who bad been out, came in
and aked that the words be taken down.
The speaker said that tbc proper time for
that request had passed. Wise said, 1
waive all points and reserve the privilege of
pergonal explanation hereafter. Lowcry
thcii proceeded with his argument. In the
course of bis remarks he referred to Thomas
Hendricks. Perhaps some of his republican
friend had heard of that gentleman as hav
ing been the successful candidate for the
vice-Presidency in 1870. He disclaimed
any knowledge of the gentleman in that
connection and Lovvery retorted by inti
mating that Hcndricksmight bo beard of as
elected to some office in lt&l in connection
with the great heart of the Democratic
party, Samuel J. Tildcn. Hiscock sug
gested this disenssion should be carried on
in cipher, which suggestion was received
by sundry ejaculation of tattooed from the
Pctidor spoke in support of the claims of
setting member. Pending further debate
the House adjourned.
House committee on judiciary ordered
favorable report on Delegate Monzeanares.
Joint resolutions providing for the suspen
sion on all laws, acts and joint resolution

vestigation now being made by senate com
mittee on territories.
The house sub-committee on naval affairs
to-day reported to the full committee a bill
providing an appropriation of $40,000 for
the relief or officers and crew of the Unit
ed States sloop of war Cumberland, and
the Uniteil States steamer Monitor, who
were engaged in action with Confederate
steamer Merrimac, in Hampton Uoads
March S and 9, 18C2. The report accom
panying the bill says, the claim to prize
money must be rejected, but while this is
true, evidence presented the committee
abundantly proves most conspicuous gal
lantrj and devoted patriotism as well ai
extraordinary services rendered by tho
officers and crews of these ships, which, in
the opinion of your committee, entitles
them to generous and gratctul recognition
by their country-

New York, May 20. The great mass
meeting of citizens and business men call
ed express approval ot the administration
ot President Arthur, and urge his rcuora
ination for a second term. The mass meet
ing was held to-night at Cooper Union.
More orderly, and intelligent assemblage
than that which crowded the great hall was
never before seen in this city. At half past
seven every seat in the building was occu
psed. and one-half an hour later when C.
X. Itliss, of Bliss, Fairburn A Co.,
called the meeting to order, not another
person could find standiug room in tho hall,
though they still continned to pour into the
doorways, until finally at S:10 the com
manding police gave orders to close the
doors. In tho audience were a large num
ber of ladies. Seats were provided upon
the platrorm for about sixty people.
Among the prominent person who occu
pied them were C. X. Itliss, Frederick S.
Winslow. Henry Ward ltcechcr. Itenj. II.

urer T. O. Actim, Surrogate DG. Itolling.

to order, and in brief stated the ob

was the unusual thing for business men to '
have it word in choosing a candidate for the
presidency, as this was tho work of those
who were supposed to be better posted in
public affairs. Political papers had en
deavored to depreciate the efforts of the
business men in the present instance, and
insinuated that at the present time it would I
be better tor the business men to attend to I
their own business and look alter their I
stocks and bonds and merchandise, instead
or meddling with politics. ThcywouId take

Kansas City, May 30. A Topeka special
to the Journal, last night, says that the
Democratic love feast held last Saturday it
far reaching in its effects and is the subject
of much consideration amoBg the elect even
yet. While many members of that party
deny it, and some even goto far as to say
Judge Martin was made a chair of, the rea
fact ii he took thelaembers by the noses
and led them up to the trough and made
forty-one of them drink their twill, only
three breaking away. And these three rep
resent a considerable element in tuts city
and county. Judge Martin told them iu
convention that be was a tried and true
Democrat before thoy were weaned, and, in
substance, all thev had to do was to walk
un to tbc polls and vote, keening their
mouths shut in presence ot their elders;
that there were old and gray headed Dem
ocrats (pointing to his ovvn hair) who
would do all the thinking, and bad no need
to seek advice of sucklings. Keverting to
tbc past, he stated that twenty-nine years
ago bo hud upheld Democracy in Uie State
ol Kansas, had aided in making the party
what it then was, and had always followed
faithfully the rules governing that party.
There was a spirit of rebellion manifest
iu the convention, but only three out of
fnrt v-four dared declare their independence
at the time, though they had no hesitation
afterwards. One, Mr. Greene, a young
man of decided opinion, struck a keynote
iu declaring himself free Irom any taint of
the blind subjection so notlceabla in many
of tbc Shawnee county Democrats, and thai
he was not bound to swallow any dote
Judge Martin might sec lit to prepare for
the Democracy. There is a tendency In
this party, as far as this section is concern
ed, to pay some attention to the younger
men who duTlnc the last-twenty years have
prevented it bcingTorgotten. The younger

Much bad blood was stirred up, and any

meeting as a slap at Judge .Martin, eveu
while Martin was advreating an iudore
meat or the governor. This morning the
elder clerk stated that Martin having been
at vairanco with the party ibr two years,
now endeavored to come crawling back.
Come'' is a good word to use iu tLis case,
it first shows where the aforesaid c. c.
stands, in spite or the Atchison Patriot,
which calls him o Itepubllcan. One sen
tence in Judge Martin's speech last- Satur
day evidently galls him, as It does many
other vounir Dcmocraf-s. Said the judge:
i "I wns in the harness as a Democrat before
vour younger members or the party were
