ances early this morning, a still more

Chicago and Alton roads seem to be
in the beet conditiorj so far as their

more of the o'd employes re
turned to work this morning, giv

condition of affairs is much the same
ai at the Alton yards an J depot, and
a freight train on that road was sent
out this morning. The men in the
other yards, excepting the Louisville

are busy making up trains, and It is
expected they will succeed in sending;
them out later in the clay.
At the Indianapolis and Kt. Louis

willingness to devote their energii a to

Mr. Hoxie was seen, and when asked
il the railroad company had appointed
any committee to confer with the
committees appointed by the citixeus
and the laboring men, replied that no

such committee.
"But the citir.ans will reouot flitt

This year, whn the season opened
with inrrermd confidence that prom

out of industrial enterprise that can

dispensable. Thus has labor boycotted
labor fully $1,(100,000.(00 for 18S0, and
when will tbe coutidence so wantonly

Eu.ahb-thtowh, Kv., April 12. On
a well stocked farm mar the village of
Lawsonville, Nelson county, lives
Tbomas Malen, a well-to-do farmer
and stock-raiser. Among Mr. Malen's
possessions is a cow, which, in the
very brief csreer of four years, has
made a record for fruitfulness that is
proably not excelled. ' At fonr yrats
of age this modest looking kine is the
mother of ten calves, all healthy and
active. This recoitl has been by steps,
and arguing from lur past exploits
there is a great futuie before her. At
the age of two this cow bore twins; a
year later she brought foith triplets,
and now another year has passed and
she baa evinced a spirit of piogress by
giving birth to a very pretty quintet.
Mr. Malen has leceived several very
flattering offers fur this wonderfully
pioductive piece of rowtleeb, but he
refuses to part with her.

Tbe Sitting Member-Frank Hard's
Spei-cb Proceedings is
tbe Seaate.
Wash i soton, A pril 1 4. Smilr The
Chair laid before the Senate I letter
from Senator Jackf on, saying that he
had accepted the 1'nited States Judge
ship of the sixth Circuit; that bis seat
in the Unit d Statee Senate had there
fore become vacant, and reqaesting
tbe Presidett protem. of the Senate to
so inform the Kxecutive of Tennes-
The Chair slid information would
be accordingly sent to the Governor
of Tennessee.
The Chair also laid before: the Sen
ate s memorial of the Wool-Growers'
Convention, held at St. Louis, com
plaining of the proposition to place
wool on the free list. Referred.
Senator Morgan said he bad been
instructed by the Committee on
Foreign Relations to give notice that
to-morrow at 2 o'clock, or as eoon
thereafter as practicable, be would a? k
ths Senate to go into executive session
for the consideration of an important
matter.
Senator Dolph gave not'ea that on
Friday he would ask consent to ad
dress the Senate on Indian depreda
tions. Senator But'er then addressed the
Senate on tbe subject of open execu
tive sessions. He had examined with
care, he said, the subject under con
sido'ation aud had come to the con
clusion that the inles providing for
secret sessions ought 4o be abrogated.
There was never a time when the
necessity for the abro?aion Of these
rules wfs made so plain ai at the
present.
He charged the Republican majority
in the Senate with intetferiig with
i he constitutional prerogative of the
President for party purposes, and eaid
he wanted the Senate doors wide open
wtnn action was being taken on
Presidential nominations in order that
the country might be advised of the
frivolous character of the giounds on
which action was refused on nomina
tions. His (Senator Butler's) experi
ence in the Senate convinced him that
there wai no use and no necessity for
secret session", except perhaps in con
sidering treaties with foreign nations.
Themieal, safeet and nearest toward
civil service reform, Senator Butler
said, was through wide open doors of
the Senate for executive as Veil as
legislativesessione, and then to permit,
by law, the members of the Prtnident's
Cabinet to come on the floor of Con-
freBs from time to time aud participate
n debate, but without a vot, ai pro
vided by the bill introduced by Sen
ator Pendletan. No other comas
could so well tend to tbe proper under
standing of public question!, or the
better relations of the executive and
legislative departments of tbe govern
ment. Senator Riddleberger submitted as a
cubstitute for the pending ictio ution
relating to executive sessions, a reso
lution providing "that all matters
other than ibe relat ng treaties should
be considered and ai ted upon by tbe
Senate in open session." It was or
dcred printed.
On motion of Senator Blair the Sen
ate took np tho bill re(.ored by him
fiom the Committee .n Pension s "for
the relief of soldiers of the late war
honorably discharged aftersix months'
ecrvice who are uirubled and depend
ent upon their own labor for support,
and of dependeut parents of soldiers
who died in the service or from dia
bilitiea contracted therein." Senator
Blair said the bill wps substantially
the same Will that had beeu passed by
theSMnate at tbo laist e8iioa, but bad
fuile-i in thellrmeof Representatives.
A 2 o'cl jck h nutter went over for
to-day and the interstate bill was laid
bef Jre the Senate.
Senator Cullom detailed tie, pro
visions of the mrajurs at gret laogth.
Senator Palmer said be would vote
for the bill, not because he thought it
all that he would approve, huf bc
caute he thought it looked in the
right direction. Among tbe servants
of civilisation, he said none ap
proached the railroad in efficiency. It
bad net only made tbe wiliUrnefs
b omnia as tbe roBe, but: bad
also enabled the rose to be readily ex
changed for the products cf tU city.
No small task that it bad accomplished
was in rondorii-g the nat'oa komc
geneous. It had reduod the cost
of transportation of a year's fo)d from
the Weft to the Eastern seaboard to
the price of otto duy's labor. Senator
Palmer here entetel. at Couniili'iable
length into tbe question of railroad
hibtory In the United Kates, at well
as in Europe, to sliow the rniUl and
ulra intmary development ot rai
roadu and their increasing tendency to i

contraction. To-day. said Senntir Pa
mer, half a dozen gentlemen in Wall
street could get together and by a
1 piece of fir uncial juggleiy dictate the
: protits or losses ot thousands of men
and of many communities by their
Ant. Rocl.etter was stopped that
i Minneapolis might thrive. All but one
i of the manufacturing establishments at
I Niagara Falls had been destroyed iu

I the capital and tabor invested in oil
I wells miiBt be lost in order that one
I great company might grow It was
undisputed tbat bum net Tient in cer
tain uirvunons, nor. oecanre mere were
the natural directions, but because the
niilroad rates were missing. The most
surprisinn thing to Senator Palmer wa.-
how the businesscommunity sustained
itself under such conditions. The prin
ciples of law that ought to govern the
common carrier were habitually vio
lated. Especial contracts governing
long periods of time were made every
day with heavy shippers, giviiw them
practically tne control ot the market.
There was neither equity, law nor jus
tice in tbe present system of railroad
charge;. Senator Palmer gave a num
ber of instances of what he termed
unjust discrimination by railroad com
paniee, including some by and with
the Standard Oil Company. Contin
uing, he eaid he did not suppose the
appointment of this commission would
bring on the millenium. . For forty
years these raiboad corporations had
been tightening their grasp on the
people. We were to-day confront
ed by very great evils in con
nection with them. We could not
remedy all tbe evila at once, but we
would have done our duty when we
should have done our best. When tbe
new acts should be tried new remedies
would be discovered. Referring to
watered stock, Mr. Palmer said three
sevenths of the railroad capitalization
of the lTnited States Wiis water, and
the masters of Wall street had realized
vast fort unes in bard cash out of this
water. The sovereignty of the great
trunk lints presented a more danger
ous imperiura imperece than the most
cetitialised government that the world
ever witnessed. Railroads were great
and most useful servants of civiliza
tion, but they must not he petmitted
to become absolute masters of the peo-
APPEAL TO URSD
pie. If not supervised and brought
nnder control by a legislation they
would soon hsve their power as firmly
fixed as even the Hapsburss, the Ho
beer. illerrs or the tiuelpbs bad fixed
theirs. These modern dynasties, the
railroads, though born of law and the
creation of law, bai become more pow
erful than their creator, and the max
imum of royalty "the King is dead;
long live the King" was never more
true of tbe haughtiest divine right
ruler than of the modern railroad
power. When the railioal magcate
died not a Bchedule was changed, not
a locomotive made a puff tbe lees, not
even a sardine tbe lens waseold in the
railroad restaurant. l aughter Sena
tor Palmer believed the. people's mot
to Blionld be: "Special privileges for
none: equal rights for all."
After an executive session, the Sen
ate adjourned.
Tke llonae.
Mr. Morrison III., from the Com
mittee on Rules, reported a resolution
granting leave to the Committee on
Public Linda, at any time during the
E resent sesoion after the morning
our, to call up for conaideration bills
reported from the committee for the
forfeiture of land grants to ra lroads
and other corporations, to prevent
speculation in tbe public lands and
for the reservation cf public lands for
tbe benefit of actual bona tide settlers,
tbe same not to interfere with prior
special orders or with revenue and ap
propriation bills. Adopted.
The House then resumed considera
tion of tbe Hurd-Komets contetted
flection case.
Mr. Hall Is. thought that as far as
the charge of bribery made by the
contestant was concerned, the verdict
to be arrived at from tbe study of tbe
evidence, must be the Scotch verdict
of "not guilty;" but as it was clearly
shown in one or two precincts that tl e
laws of Ohio bad been violated, and
in one instance intimidation bad been
resorted to on behalf of Rimei, he
hadt) come to tho enielusion that
there had been no legal election in tbe
Tenth Distiictof Ohio. ,
Mr. Ely Ma s supported the
claims of Komeis, and bit speech was
supplemented by Mr. lbpkins 111 .
wbile Mr. Green N. C devoted his
remarks to a denunciattoa of the Re
publican side of the Iloise for decid
ing election cafes on oirty grounds.
Mr. Pettibone Tenn. attacked the
credibility of Mr. Gisntmann, the
chief witness for Mr. Hard, and quoted
from the testimony to show tbat no
reliance could be' placed upon bis
statements.
Mr. Breckenridge Ky., in review
ing all tbe points in 'the case, had
come to the conclu-ion tbat Mr. Ro
meie was not entitled tt tbe seat. If
the historic fox who stood at the
mou'li of the lion's den, be be itating
where he would accept an invitation
to dinner, bad listened to tbe argu
ments of the lion's friends tbat be
should not attach too much import
ance to an individual's tracks that led
into the den, be would have ltsteaed
to arguments as convincing and con
clusive as the arguments of the fiienda
of Mr. Komeis, but it was the fact that
all the tracks lei in one direction
into the den that preserved tbe fox
from he celebrated fet. So it was
in tt is c s , all the tracks pointed t
a vioVion of the law. Tho purity of
tbe ballot-box should be held f acred
ar J the way to make it sacred was that
when it spoke tbe voice of f rand, when
it was made to utter lies, those who
got the benefit of it should be driven
from tbe halls of Congress; and it
fhould be written all over American
jurisprudence, "This voiua (.hall be
loyslly heard aud itn august buheet
Bliall be loyally obeyed."
Tbe floor wag then accorded to tbe
contestant Mr. II urd to speak in his
own behalf. He took hia stand far
back ou the1 Democratic side of tbe
Howe, at the desk which he occu
pied during the Forty-fihth Congrees
and from which he delivered bis
gpmcti upon the tariff question. The
attention which characterized the
previous discussions was suddenly
transformed into attention as Mr.
Ilurd opened his argument with tbe
statement that 1 e would rot have ad
dressed the House, but for tbe
fact that he wished to show
to this body and the Amer
Icaii people that be had goad cause to
claim that he bad been elected in the
Tenth Ohio Distiict. His sense of
duty to himself, to his frieni's and to
the constituents who had so often hon
ored him, compelled bim to speak to
day, nor did be overlook tbe interest
which the public had in the ques
tion he would diacu's. Before and
beyond all interest which either tbe
Bitting member or himself had in the
controversy was the interest of the
public. It made but little
difference who the legislator
was provided the source
of hit power was pure and uncontam
itated; lastly, above the question, and
greater than the queution, ts to who
ws the representative, was that other
question, "JJas the election onwriH U
he relies been fair?" for without pure
. Lt! III...
and Ires elections the republic was like
the splendors of tropical climes when
the fragrance and the color had de
parted, tie would indicate the pen
alty which selfishness had attempted
to impose on tbe honest advocacy of a
cause he ieved to be true. He would
point out the means by which mo
nopoly and ill-gotten wealth had tried
to throttle free discussion. He would
show the attempt that bad been made
to thwart the will of the people in oae
district at least, and whatever the re
suit might be he would not consider
the occasion lott if it enabled him ti
aronse public attention to the great
danger which was brooding over our
free institutions, and the purchasing of
ballots by corrupt;on, and in tbe en
slavement of labor by terrorism at the
polls. Mr. Hurd then went into an
examination of tue testimony, only
giving bis attention first to the case of
Precinct B. In this precinct he argued
the return was false and had been fatal
lr impeached, and there had been
irregularities there such as ti leave
the result in an uncertainty in which
it was impossible to ascertain the true
result. Between the close of the elec
tion and tbe close of the count twelve
tickets had disappeared. Not only
bad there been a violation of the law
in the exposure of the ballots, but
there had been an actual tampering
with them. There bad been fraud at
the ballot-box, and to place fraud in
the ballot-box was to throw a corpse
into a fountain the outpourings
would thereafter flavor of deatb. For
this recssn alone tbe precinct should
be thrown out. But, again, there had
been bribery at this precinct, and a
conspiracy had been entered into to
debauch it because he was a free
trader. Tbe sanctity of tbe ballot
box had been invaded and no atone
ment could be made for it ; the certifi
cate had been stained and no waters
could purify it: tbe ballot bad been
roisored and nothing could cleanse
11, mo it-iuru iitwii waa a ut uiu
neither Uiis House aor any other
power could make it true.
He next diacussed the Kelley Island
precinct, where it is alleged that in
timidation was practiced by an em
ployer by tbe name of Kelley upon his
emplores. He maintained tbat the

shown and be controverted the cor
rectness of the law as laid down by
the majority, that as it had. not been
proved tbat the intinvdation bad bad
its effect no notice ehould be taken of
it. There waa something revolting to
him in tbe intimidation f employes
by their employers. Shame on the
cause which woold perpetrate such a
crime against labor in its own interest;
soame on tbe paity that would delib
erately enga2e in the work of unman
ning men. Applause Kelley had
s ated that he was protecting his busi
ness. He (Mr. Hurd) did not know
of any butine'S which required a vio
lation of law in itn interest. Enter
prises might loom into iteming pros
perity, lines ol trade might be cast in
every direction, wealth might be
gathered from all nstiens, but if the
business must succeed through crime
and violation of law the day would
come when the enterprise would fall,
the t ade would be lost and tbe
wealth would not remain. lie wanted
Kelley and every ether employe to
understand tbat they miht own tbeir
acres, their plant, their machinery,
but they did not own their men. Ap
plause. There was 8 line beyond
which they should not go. They
might persuade, they might argue,
they might convince, but they must
not threaten ; they must not coerce,
they must not compel. That was the
leseon which the law taught. Tbat
was tbe lesson he would bave tbe
House teach to-day. Let it teach every
employer in America that if he intimi
dated any man in bis employ he did
at bis risk, for every such vote he at
tempted to influence would be lost,
unless it was allirmatively Bhown that
the influence did not effect its pur
pose. Let it teach employers to re
spect the dignity of hit) or and tl e
dignity of manhood. Ltt it tiacb
them tbat no wealth, however great,
can rob the humblest citizen of tbe
right of suffrage, aud no manufactur
ing interer-t, however potential, shall
be permitted ti interfere with the
freedom of elections. In conclusion
he said : I do not deem it proper to
call attention to the election
at which I was defeated. It
waa the October election in Ohio in
1HS4. Tbe Democratic pitty In tbat
State was engaged in tbe first great
battle of that canvass. All the lorces
were concentrated on its soil. The
fate of the Republican party was held i
in its baud. If Ohio went against the
Republican State ticket Ohio was loet !
to the Republican candidate for Presi
dent. It is a matter of public noto
riety that whatever wea'tb, or power
or organization could do was done.
Members of the different departments
at Washington were in Ohio. The
campaign was managed under tbe eye
of the great leader of the Republican
party, and the Republican candidate
for President was in Ohio, in my die
trict, in my citv, on the night before
the election, the eyes of the whole
nation were turned to it. The battle
everywhere else was suspended, but it
went on in Ohio, And how it went
on with such effort agalntt luch fear
ful odds, with such pains, strength anc
vitality none can krow except the gal
lant Democrats of Ohio who were en
gaged io the controversy. It waa in the
battle in the very forefront of it
in which I was stricken down. If I
bad been fairly stricken down I
should have wa:ted for tbe tender
hand of a kindlier day to lift me np.
But having ' been un'airly strickea
down, as I honestly believe, I could
do no less than to come to this House
and ask it, in its impartial judgment,
to give me the seat to whicti I am en
titlednot througb symiathy, not
through partisanship, God forbid, but
in punishment of wrong aid in vindi
cation of right.
As Mr. Hurd ended hit- speech he
was greeted with loud aJd long-continued
applause on thetloorand In,
the gallerii s.
The vote waa first takra on the re30
lv;ion of the minority, Which declares
that Jacob Rmeis is tiot en itled to
the B9at. This was defeated yeas,
105 ; nays, 166. The following Demo
crats voted with the Republicans in
the negative: Messrs. Beach, Blount,
Blancbard, Boyle, Candler, Cutch
ings, Dorgan, Dockery, Dunn, Findlay,
Ford, Gay, Gibson Md., Hale, Ham
mond, Harris, Heard, Hemphill, Hen
ley, Hewitt, Holoan, Lanham, Lawler,

Sprigs, Stewait Tex, St. Martin,
Swope, Tillman, Turner, Ward 111..
Warner O., WJeon, Wise, Wolford
and Wonhiugtoa
Tbe majority resolutions confirming
Mr. Romeis's right to his seat were
agreed to without division.
The agricultural f ppropriation bill
was theu taken up and passed; the
river and harbor hill made the un
finished buBiuees, at;d the House ad
journed. In lb Committee Koonm.
Representatives Hatch, Green N.
0. and White Mino. were tr.-uay
appointed a subcommittee of tbe
House Committee on Agriculture, to
draft a bill regulating tbe sale of oleo
margarine. Before this was done, bow
ever, a discussion occurred upon the
proposition, upon which the members
of the committee generally expressed
themselves as favorable to the taxa
tion and labeling of Imitation buttera.
Tte proposed admifsiou of Dakota
into the union of States was consid
ered by the House Committee on Ter
ritoiiea to-day wittout conclusion.
The Harrison bill, which has already
passed the Senate, to divide the Terri
tory, north and sonth of th Missouri
river, and the various other proposi
tions all louna aanereuiB w tio-.urir
favorable report. During the disce-
inn anmA nl the Republican members
eaid they regretted to find a disposi
tion on the part of the Democratic
members of the committee not to ad
mit Dakota as State for political
reasons. The Democrats took excep
tion to this and a somewhat animated
discueslon took place. The commit
tee then adjourned until Wednesday
morning.
