A nomber of committee reports
were snbmitted, among them the fol

payment into the Treasury ot tbe re
ceipt! of tbe money order system, and
for tbe payment of the expenses of
tbe system out of appropriations. Laid
on the table.
The House then resumed in tbe
morning hour the consideration of the
bill to prevent the claim ot wa tixea
ii set-off ag tinet Hiatus having claims
gainst tbe government. Aftor con
siderable debate, but without act on,
the House went Into committee of the
whole, Mr. Hammond ia in tbe
chair, on the half-gallon tax bill, and
Mr. Find'ny Mil. took tbe floor
with a carefully prepared speech upon
the financial q iestion, which he said
resolved itself into the question as to
whether or not the Bland act should
be repealed. The Bland act. on iti
face was an impeachment of the wis
dom o! free coinage, nnd a legislative
insertion that there was strong ground
lor making a distinction between gold
and silver, and by this act the advo
cates of silver save up their whole
cue. He said to the advocates of sil
ver "folbw your leader, wholly re
pudiate the false position In whi.h
you 1 ave been placed by the Blnud
act for the last eight years, take the
tt ind which logic and experience dic
tates, and demand (or your silver its
fullest and complete rehabilitation.
The whole queeion wm whether
Congress should get rid of a measure
which was neither 11. tsh nor tiah, Bi-a
nor god dry lund." He favored put
ting Loth metals on an equal, honest
ninney f oting.
Mr. Wa-ner 0 thought that m
permanent settiumeiitof the linnm-iul
iut'tt;nn could be arrived a'- till gold
and in Ivor wore ntred to the pos
ticus fiey occupied nrior to the de
inoiiet zatiun of the latter metal. He
spoke (o- Hilver because ho believed it
to be ttie side of truth unl jaatice, and
Iwau'e he believed t:iat mo welfare
of il. e couiit-yand tlie world were
bound up in it. lie would admit fiat
ibo present condition of silver could
no-, be regwdeil an permanent that it
waa not i' gii ill consistent. Nothing
but its remomtiun to a full equality
with gold as a money metal could
render its r o.idit'o i satisfactory : noth
ing short ot tlia; would satisfy tbe de
mand of equity of vint industrial in
tert'of the world. He should say
"Hold the foil" if t'wt could be done,
or take a Mop in advance if po.-nible,
but not lo et backward.
Pending action the committee rose.

Coin Nvu. Mis.. February 8. "Cori
gender" eya I made wild and con
flicting statements about tbe prohibi
tion agitation here. He abowed no
conflict of my ttttemente, but, doubt
less, prohibition does conflict with tbe
greed and cupidity if tone, and some
one almost "wild'' to get whisky bink
here. Tbe mss-mef t'.ng was a big
success, aside from the dcxen or so
colored prf ajbers it'tending a Meth
od at district conference. The inti
mation', that ttie anti-piohibition pe
tition was "tampered" with at Jackson
two yearn ago is an old threadbare
slander which no informed and re
spectable person bere believes, aid
which has bren openly denounced as
such time and again. Not a particle
of procf boa ever been adduced to
sustain it. The prohiblt'on petition
two j ears a,o bad 000 names, rxi'lio
ive of a'l possible eriorr, and was
pronounced by Sen.Vors the bc.t pe
tition ever rtnt t Jackson. Not a
dead man or non-resident wag on it.
Tbe whisky petition was so imnei(tct
and unfair tlml it killed itee.lf ami never
apprared in tbe Senate. The talk about
the "tax-payers" opposing prohibition
is simply tbe old Bong ot bm.sn pre
sumption forever sung by tbe saloon
men. Kverybody here knows that
liquor petitions depend largely on tho
ignorant lower classes to swell their
numbeta. I assert positively, and am
prepared ti prove, that two-thirds of
the tax-payera are on our aide. Only
two or throe huBinees bouses cf anv
importance whatever ink for "repeal,"

The talk about trade leaving Corinth
because there la no wbiaky sold bere
is shallow nonsense, as there ia abso
lutely no place for it li go to get whis
ky. There are but two liquor shops
within about fifty miles of this place,
so far aa we know. One ol them ia in
a lo cabin just serosa the line, in Ten
neeaee, a d we don't think much cot
ton has been shipped from "Rollin
ville" thia season, or a very extensive
dry gooda and gio 'ery trade haa been
carried on there. The other point ia
Burnsviile, in Tishomingo county, and
whoever bears of Burnsviile except
when tbe name ia yelled out by the
brakeman oa the train? Trade baa
been dull aid times a little stringent
at all surrounding towns, aid from
tbe same caune, two consecutive short
cotton ciops and possibly too much
liquor before we get prohibition. Pro
bib lion f uvea the people of this coun
ty at leatt f25,O0l) per year.
There ia not. a vacant dwelling in
Corinth that I know of, and but few
1 store-bousee emptv, aid they were
empty before prohibition came. There
has not been a business failure in
Corinth since we got prohibition, and
some of our merchants aay thev are
do'ng better thau ever. Some colored
people have "gone West," it is true,
but what ot that? rnoHinmoK.

New York, February 9. The Sen
ate Committee on Hailroads tea', is
endeavoring t penetrate tbe mystery
surrounding tbe granting of the fran
chise to tbe Broadway (-treat railway
met again to-day. Mr. Seward, conn
lei for the committee, put in evidence
tbe bonks of the Brralway and Sev
enth Avenue railroad, and alao certain
papers accompanying tbe books.
There were eight certificates filled out,
but only, una bad been cut, and tbua
only one apparently paid for and de
livered, and that waa the first certifi
cate in the book, acd waa to Jacob
Sharp, fjr 9)20 sba-es. Tbe stock
ledger was then introduced, and sus
tained the record of the certificate
book. The tiansfer book waslikewise
void of informa'ion. The minute book
of tbe Broadway and Seventh Avenue
railroad Board of Directors waa then
put in evidence, and it showed the
total cott of the Bioidway read aa
$),4r)2,000. Opposite tbe bead c f each
detail of horse-cars, dummies, wagons,
etc, there waa written the word
"none." In tbe income account, dated
September, 1885, thete entries oc
curred: "Grosa earnings. : net earn
ings, ; to'al gross ra'ninga, ; tilal
net earnings, ." This bad reference
to tbe Broadway road. Mr. Jacob
Sharp then tiok the witness stand,
and Mr. Conkling proceeded to exam
ine him. Tbe witness tet titled that
young Kerr, the son of the distiller. to
whom Sharp paid a'rheck of $270,000,
disbursed money to "laborers' on the

decided that the will executed by Wi'
bur F. Sto ey.late owner of the Chicaio
Timtt, in February, 18S1, was valid,
and directed that it be admitted to
probtte. Tbe matter waa heard on an
appeal from the Piobate Court. Tbe
will waa contested by the blood heirs
on three grounds: Want of testament
ary capacity, nndue influence, and that
tbe inurnment waa not properly wit
nea ed. The court held that tbe tes
tator waa of sound mind before and
a'ter the will waa drawn; that there
waa no evidence cf improper influ
