your hut, ar.ggested the idaa pi Kit
ing the same aa near as possible, just
as it occurred. After many touching
reminiscences the converiation turned
upon the mode o! electing judges.
Jim You are bating a stiinng time
in your State over the election of
Jom tor, "J ",
par t all along the judicial line.
Jim-How is that; is the piaitice at
so low an ebb, or is itthst your judges
do not give But s.'a 'tion ?
Tom Well, both. You tee we have
a heavy tup rime Court docket, and it
isgrcn'ly behind. This give rise to
the reform system in our State man

Tom We don't select, Tbey enme

It don't seek them. Promotion, Jim,
in Tennessee, comes from much seek

Jim The question, then, is a very
serious one. Our people are fortunate.
The current tnnsactions are passed

Jim They command the highest
respect aad esteem of our bar. One
thing, too, characterir.9s them; they
are very brief, pointed. They decide
tbe question in brief. Every lawyer
understands the imaning of the court.
And it endB initiation.
Tom I knew what you were com

and this ends litigation. Now, by
Ueorgs, that is exactly what we don't

Jim Who arejour Supreme Judges,
Tom? ' . .. t ,
Tom-Oar ludgest 5 WhfV with
pleasure. First, there "my friend'
Tom Freeman. lie's a sharp one; you
, bet he has his eyes on aspirants from
me western District.
Jim You ought ti know him. If
you could iust hear him when, with
aweet and loving embrace, with sweet
accents ami lovinitly, he whispers:
"Tom, my boy." Why, It goes right
down into my soul. He baa some le
gal acumen that's what yon fellows
call it. Bu, roa 0( tQ9
Tegular church. My goodness! He's
the worst, discenter you ever saw.
Why, he'll diBxent when there's no
ground for it. In F.o gland he'd be a
worse fellow than Parneli. He'd have
a balance of power, and would be
called the leader of dissenters. You
ought to real bis opinions, Jim. Bless
your soul, there's a heap of reading in
them. W hy, one of his dissenting
opinions baa more reading matter
than any twenty of yours, taking
them aa you go, in your reports. He's
my friend, though, Jimmie. But you
ouirht to see bow mad he makes law
yers like yon, Jim. Why, he says he
won't read a brief unless it is on a
single page or two, with the citations
all DUt up briefly. Well, I don't
hlame him much. Some of our law
vera are loasr winded. They extend
irom generation to generation. Blees
mv aoul. I don't blame him for not
reading all. But be'a a big reader,
Jim. He's always reading some new
hn..lr llc'a nn on statics, and dvna-
tnir and athif. and hydraulic, and.
my gcodnees, I could rot tell ou half
bedoBSknow. lie a juti wiiub
cyclopedis, chock full, and bee get
some of the sharpest poll 'Jcians for
him. He's got me, too. We are for him.
And then there's old Pete. Do you
know old Pete? Oh! he's a dauy.
Tee, Jim. He'a full of sympathy.
He'a aa aig aa a meetin' bonce, and
every inch a man. He don't write
like some others. But he'a pi'ghty
fine in hunting out tbe "natural facta
of a case. And when Pete puts his
foot down you bet he's there. And
there's Judge Cook. D.d yon ever j
hear of him. He's got none of your
sneakin' ways neither, lie goea right
for tbe substance of things. Some of
the lawyers don't like him. I do.
He'll apeak out in school. Some of
the lawyers don't like the law a he
nettled It in Daniel vs. Detiroflenseed,
14 Lea. But let me tell you about
rase. It is a leading case in our Mae.
Why, Its chock fall of law. It sticks
out of tbe case just like tbe coal beds
in the mountains. It is twenty-three
pagea long. It baa a syllabus that takes
two pagee of fine print to state the facta
to show the holding of the court.
Now you just read what the court
holds in that case. Tbe lawyer say
he doa't give the text writers cmlit
for what he got of them, nor the old
judges f r what he got rf them. They
aay be ought to have tilled it with cita
tions. Now, Jim, I'll yon what he
did. He went over f 10 ),000 the other
way from what the referees did, and
decided that case. It's a Waterloo. It
is AO-l'lirit caum. I am for Judge
Cocke. These a-e my favorites. Now
there's Judge Dasderick. I don't like
him much, lie is foi strict, ae a
103 much in earnest, lie's down, for
some strong opinions, lie is mighty
good in one way. He helps a fellow
much that nses good language, and is
dignified and decent in court. Why,
I'm on my P and til all the time
when I am before him. I bet he'd
be burned on a stake before he'd go
hack on his word or do a mean thing.
Jim, my darling, the Scotch Cove
nanter never bore himself more erect
ly. You bet he never turned bis I
'weather side" to the storm. But he's
a-going home. He's old and veneia
hie, and now alls on the bench for the
lut time. Everybody honors him
for his purity of character.
Jim Is that Judge W. F. Cooper
one of your Supreme Couit?
Tom Yes, Jim, but, but he's one of
your sort. He is an everlasting
worker. Why, that man does more
work than any man I ever saw. I be
lieve he's got an iron constitution. He
Is a working machine on wheel.
And, my goodness, there's no end of
him. lie is jiut like a wheel. And
he is perpetual motion. Why, bless
your soul, he'd rt ther run through a
record than cat a go)d breakfast.
Fact is that man fa's law, sleeps iaw
and writes law. He's got no wife.
Yes, be ha, and children too. He
married Mine Equity. They need to
say Lord Eldon wai tbe father of
Equity. Now, Judge Cooper is tho
hunbtnd. Those two works, "Tennes
see Chancery ItaporU" and "Daniel
Chancery Practice," are his children,
lie's the biggest equity lawyer we've
got. If you don't use his reports, you
know of him.
Jim 0, yes. He is good authority
with us. He is a wonderful man, and
voar people may well be proud of
im, . .
Tom But, Jim, the fact is, the new
generation want a new deal. And it
is no use disguising tbe fact, the peo
ple waut a new departure.
Jim i ao n oi Know mucn bdoui inn

Lively Time Mallraad Train,
East St.' Louis. Ill:, March 4.
For soma time past police officers
have been on the look-out for two
sharpers who had been victimizing
people at tbe relay depot. At , a late
hour Tuemlay evening, aa tbe Louis
ville and Nashville train was pulling
out, two officers saw these men get on
board.-" - They ran alter the train,
lumDed on and nulled tbe bell rope,
The train cams to a standstill, and the
two officers then entered the rear car
with their revolvers in band. When
tbe passengers caught sight of the
glutting weapons they thought that
tha ollicers were train robbers, and
the women began to shriek, while the
men jumped from their scas and en
deavored to escape out ot the forwa
door. The intelligence that train rob
bers were aboard was soon communi
cated to the passengers in the forward
cars, and the stampede became gen
eral. The parties who the officers
were after Uok advantage of the gen.
eral commotion to escape from tbe
cars. Two passengers who jumped
from the train and started to run were
just about to cross the track at the
rear end ot the train when the officers
rauttht tight of them, and, thinking
they were the two men they wanted,
gave chase. The men did not Btop
nntil several a hots bai been fired after
them. When the officers saw tbey
had not secured the men they were
after they concluded to place the
strangers under arrest, anyway, sup
posing tbey were members of the
gang. The mistake was not discovered
for several hours. Some of the lady
fiaseengera suffered severely from
Lcndboho's perfume. Edenis.
Lundbori's perfume. Alpine Violet.

Tbe Speaker laid before tbe House a
communication from tbe Secretary of
War recommending an appropriation
for extra duty pay to enlist men em
ployed at Fortreea Monroe. Keferred.
Mr. Crisp Ga., from the Commit
tee nn Commerce, presented tbe views
of tbe minority on tbe bill to incor
porate the Atlantic and Pacific Rail
way Company. Committee of the
whole. ( The minority, after detailing
tbe objections which they have to tbe
hill, sav: "Wa regard this proposition
ai cne granting subsidy tbat may, and
probably will, take from the public
Treasury 37,500,000 for tbe benefit of
a private corporation, located and to be
operated exclusively in a foreign coun
try, without any corresponding benefit
to onr country or people.")
The morning hour being under the
control of the Committee on Pnblic
Buildings and Grounds, the fol'owing
bills were called up and passed:
For a public building at Savannah,
Ga , to cost not exceeding $200,000.
Extending from 1225,000 to 275.000
the limit of cost of the public building

At the' expiration of the morning

bill might be Immediately passed, in
order that the work in the navy-yards,
hich had been stopped, might be re
sumed, and tbat the men who baa
been thrown ontof employment might
gain obtain work.
The House refused yea, 103; nays,
148 to proceed to the consideration
of the deficiency bill, and went into
committee of the whole (Mr. Crisp
Ga l in the chair) on the penBion ai'
Mr. iro3venor O. took the floor in
defense of Commissioner Dudley,
aiainst what he regarded as tbe nn.
warranted, unjust and uncalled for at
tacks made upon bim.
Mr. Keagan spoke agilnst the arrears
of pension act, aud Mr. Cable followed
him in a lengthy speech, which he
concluded by saying that every state
ment made by uen. JJiac.a tn bis an
nual report as to partisan manage
ment of the nenrion cilice by bis pre,
deceesors bad been more than estah
abed. It would be conclusively
shown that tbe pension office bad
been used ai a political machine dur
ing the political campaign of 1884, and
that the whole power and influence of
the office bad been used to promote
the success of tbe Republican party.
The debate wao continued ny Mr.
Ryan Kaj., Mr. Burrows Mich.
and Mr. Hammond Ga l.
Mr. Henderson then took the floor
and said: Did tbe gentlemen expect
that with a report from Commissioner
Black, which had been conceived anu
published with no other motive than
to make it a Democratic campaign
document. He (Mr. Henderson)
had been ridiculed lofore the country
by the wit and genius of Southern
chivaliy. He could stand it. When
he said "coppernead ne aid not tay
'Democrat." lie bad lougbt side by
side witb Democra's who had been
striving to save the nation. But why
should the gentleman from Georgia be
tbe only one to rise ana take exception
to tbe remark ? It had not been aimed
at him. It had been aimed at ex-Con-
federate soldiers, lie (Henderson)
saw from tbat gentleman's own record
that from 1861 to 1805 he had filled a
comfortable, fat State office, and bad
never expoied himself to federal lead.
Mr. Cabell lose to ask a question,
but Mr. Henderson declined to yield.
Mr. Cabell continued to speak, but the
cries of "Order" from the Republican
side and the general confusion in the
hall drowned bis voice. Mr. Hender
son (continuing) said mat ne was
srateful for the character of the
speeches of some of his opponents,

Ingails: A memorial of tbe Kansas

Senator Sewdl, from the Committee
of tbe Library, reported favorably a
joint resolution accepting from Wm.
H. Vanderbilt azd Julia Dent Grant
objects ofjvalue and ail prevented by
foreign governments to the late Gen.
U. S. Grant.
On the snf gestion of Senator Ingalls
it was changed to the form of a bill.
On the suggestion cf Senator Logan it
was a'so changed so that the same of
Mrs. Grant would precede that of Mr.
Vanderbilt. Senator Logan thought
that would be tho more appropria'e
order. Tbe bill was tben rawed.
Senator Sewell. from the Committee
on Military AfiVrs, reported favorably
the House bill for the relief of Gen.
Fitz John Porter, witb a report giving
the views of tbe mtjorily of tbe committee.
Senator Sswell added that Senator
Logan would la'er submit the report
ot trie minority.
Senator Kiddleberger said tbat some
remarks of his yesterday bad been
construed to be offensive, personally,
to tome Senstors, and especial y "10
the Senator from North Carolina." If
anything that could be so construed
was pointed out to Senator Kiddleber
ger in the Itaord he would be glad to
erase it before tbe revised ed.tion.
His only object had been to ptoteat
ngainBt the admission of professional
lobbyists to the floor of the Senate
men who came to persuade Setators,
and if they could not pe euado them,
then to abuse them and blnckguard
them. He had meant no offense to
"the Senator from North Carolina."
Senator Logan gave notice that he
would soon ask tbe Senate to take up
the bill to increase tbe efficiency of
the army, which was a very Import ant
bill be said. Senator Van Wyck at
tempted to get up tbe bill increasing tbe
eion ol widows and dependent rela
tives of deceased soldiers, but the de
sire of the Senators to proceed with
the education bill interfered with
this. The education bill was thtn
taken no. Tbe yeas and navs were
taken upon Senator Dolph's amend
ment ottered vesterdav. and resulted
Yeac. 17: nays, 38. So tho amend
ment was rfiett?d. Senator Djlph
then offered an amendment pioviding
that Alaska be included in the bill.
Senator Harrison said it was doubt
Senator Teller said the appropria
tion going ti A'aska under this bill,
even if Alaska could bo construed to
come under its provisions, would be
woithlees. A considerable amount
would be necessfry for schools in
Alaska. Russia had good schools in
Alaska, but we, who boasted of our
love for education, were allowirg the
preset t genetu'ion of children there
fogrowuo wholly ignorant. Aletka
paid us :100,COO a yia', and cost as
ess than ff.0,000 a year lor govern
ment. We ought to make proper pro
visions for schools there. Senator
Teller a'so thought the bill ouirht to
Include tbe Indian territory.
Senator Dawes said we could ro.
mingle two syttems utterly incongru
ous. One reason why our educational
Oorts in Ala3ka had been of to little
profit was becaima of disagreements
between tbe United States officials in
that conntrv. the rcholars having in
some cases been taken out of schools
on writ of habeas corpus.
Senator Teller asked wben tnose
Benat jr Dawes said tney occurrea in
the "past." He did not want to criti
ciee anybody, and did not care to dis
cuss whether they occurred under the
present administration or io:meraa-
ministrations. He favored liberal edu
cation pto vision for Alaska, and alto
for our own Indians, but thought it
better to have the money go direct
than through the pending bill. -
Senator Teller demea tuai me minga
mentioned by Senator Dawes had oc
onrred during his (Senator Teller's)
administration of the Interior Depart
ment. If they had occurred, tney naa
occurred since he (Senator Teller) left
that department. As to our provis
ion for Indian education, there were
15,000 Puoblo boys and girls who were
growing up Btmi-eivilizid for want of
education, anu i,uuu ixavejo uuimreu
were iu the (time cond.tion.
Seoator Congsr said it mere was
one dara stain who. woicu our en
lightened republic could be charged,
was tint we naa taxen me
Alaskans frcm wbat we are some
times prone to term a half bar
baric depotism (Ruesia), and yet we
had never done a thing to elevate or
educate them. H severely criticised
the course of the United fctues Gov
ernment officia's in Alaska. They had
ioined with the worst element there,
be said, una encourageu iu
vices of the worst classes in Alaska.
He gave all praise to the President for
removing officials who had dishonored
our good name in mat iar-ou couuirj.
The amendment was lejecieu yeno,
12; nays, 30.
Kami T.icun. then, "ta see." he
said, "whether onr educational friends

amendment, already snwested by
him, appropriating $2,000,000 to aid in
building school-nouses in cumuium-
ties of sparse population among peo
