with reference to stocks : It is impos

is a strong undertone to the market,

Washiicqtok, April 19. The fol

No. 2299-The United S ates ap
pellant vs. Wm. J. Lsndrum; an ap
peal from the Court of Claims. La ad
rum wm Collector oflnttrnsl Revenue
f ir tbe Eighth Kentucky District, and
brought this suit to recover the one
half per cent, commission on thesalf of
lax paid stamps allowed collectors, un
der the act of Jaly 20. 1868. The
Couit of Claims gave a ju lenient in
his favor and the - Supreme Court af
firms that judgment. Judge Wcoda
delivered the opinion, holdirg that
Internal Revenue Collectors are en
tit'ed to the one-half per cent, on the
taxes collected by tubs of tax-pa d
at tmpf, in addition to the salary al
lowed them, graded according t the
amount of their annual collections,
provided that their tout compensation
shall not exceed 4500 a yf ar.
No. 22C Tbe Konth Boston Iron

profits on the claim that the Navy De

with it to build new boilers for
several United iStntes vessels, and had
afterward suspended all work undur
the contract. Tbe Supreme Court af
firms the judgment of the Comt of
Ola;ms in favor of the United 8 a'te.
Tha Chief Justice delivering the opin
ion of the court held, as baa previous
ly been decidtd, that to bind tbe
United Slates contracts by the Navy
Decartment must be in writing aud

No. 1123-TheBiardof Liquidation
of the city of New Orleans vs. the
United Stat 38 ex rel Judah Hart.
This was petition in the name of the
United States on the relation of Judah
Hart, a ciiizn of the State of New
York, f r a maadamus to the Bour i
of Liquidation of New Orlnunsto issue
to him bonds of the city for the
amount of a judgment which he, in
March, 1882, received against the city
for $121,097, with interest at 5 per
cent. This judgment was founded on
contracts for municipal purposes mud
from 1872 to 1877. To review it, the
city med a writ of errcr from
the Supreme 'Joint, but as it was
without a Buperet'dc-as Hart issued
a writof Am Uv and levied upon
certain moneys due and to become
due tj the city by the Canal aud C!ai
homo Railroad Company and by tne
New QrleAQS Railroad Company, and
a'to upon the interest of the city in
the New Orleans Sugar 8hed Com
pany and in the New Orleacs snga'
sheds. Proceedings were tuken to
onteetthes eeiBiiiei, but judgment
was rendered in favor of Hart, and to
reverie that judgment the city bued
out a writ of enor, with a super
sedeas. While the cbss were
pending the city entered in'o
rt compromise, by whicti it was
ftipulated that the city should
dismiss her writs of error, and tht.t
Hart should renounce I n eeizura of
tbe sugar sheds and appiy the bonus
due, and ti become due, by the rail
road comranie? to the payment of his
judgment, and fund ttlie balance un
der the provisions rf the act known
KB No. 07 of tbe Legislature of the
State of 1884. Under the writ; of fieri
facia various sumi were collected,
which reduced trie judgment on tne
8th of July, 1885, to $7(1,194. Hart
complied with the stipulations of the
compromise, and called upon the
Board ot .Liquidation to pre
pare and deliver to him
bonds under the provisions of
act No. 7 of 1884 for the balance due
on his judgment. This the board re
fufted to do. 11 irt then prayed for a
writ of mandamus. The board set up
the pita tbat all the property of the
city not dedicated to public use and
alao the surp us of what was known
as the premium bond tax were
pledged under Act No. 58 of 1882 to
tbe payment of tbe bonds of the city
previuus'y issued and (hat the act nf
1834 in so far as it directs a diversion
of that property and fund impairs
the contract with the bondholders
and is, therefore, unconstitutional and
void. .The conrt below directed a
peremptory mandamus to the board
to iwut the bonds. The Supreme
Conrt affirms the judgment below. It
held that the floating debt fi the city
existing on tbe passage of t i of 18SU,
when its validity was eeiafcliehed by
judicial proceedings, as in the cae of
the claim Hart could not under the
constitution o! 1879 be excluded from
the benefits nf the appropriation made
in the act of 1883 for the payment of
the bonded debt.
In No. 1101 the Sun Mutual In
surance Company vs. the United
States ex rel., Judh H. Hart, the
same judgement is rendered as in tbe
No. 21 x The County Court of Cape
Girardeau county. Misnun, and ttie
Judges thereof vs. the United States
ex rel John F. Hill ; the julgment of
the lower court is affirmed.
A motion was submitted for leave
to file the p'tiiinn for a writ of habeas
corpus of Joseph S. Lonignn, Attor
ney of Missouri, who was leeently
sentenced to innprisonment for ninety
davs for contempt nf court, in failing
to obey an order of the Circuit O urt

Or Mississippi -His ftpeerh Iu the
Hoaso of steiiresealatu.s oa
the Labor Troahles.
During the recent debate in Congress
on the resolutions to appoint a com
mittee to investigate the iahor trou
bles Hon. J. B Morgan, w ho repre
sents the Socond Mississippi District,
said: Mr. Speaker, I desire to say a
word on this subject 1 believe the
time has arrived when it is the duty
of this Heuse to speak words of w is
dom to the men who are now out and
who say that they art1 suffering on ac
count of this labor question. It is the
duty oi this Henso to disicl from the
minds of the knights of LaUr the de
lusions that liave seized upon them,
the chief of those delusions being the
idea that relief for them lies in Con
gress. Relief cn not be found here,
nor can it be had from any legislative
enactment with regard to the wrongs
they complain of, and it is the duty of
thtB House now to speak at once, in
order that they iinay paus and con
sider and see where their action is
tending How do we stand, sir'.' Mr.
Powderly stands at the head of a
powerful orgiuii.alion and he has
spoken and endeavored to act with
w isilom ; but he has shown his in
ability to control tin orga'. ization be
cause his HiilKirdinates ut:ery refuse
to obey his orders They wiy, "We
wish to arbitrate." Should no' tliis
House tell them that there is nothing
that can be brought forward, from
their stand, i.i. it, that admi's of legal
arbitration '' WK.d is there to be ar
bitrated'.' I'h. y say to the railroad
compai its, "vo wish employment."
The railro . l companies reply, "We do
not need your services." Then the
men siiy,"Ve will arbitrate;" and the
railroad companies sav, "We have
nothing to arbitrate; we do not need
yourservices ", That is the whole case.
Then why not speak to these men
now and tell them that this is like the
case of every other contract known to
the law- of the land; that they are at
liberty to say to the railroad compa
nies, ''Wo will work for you," or "We
will not work for you," and that the
railroad companies are at liberty to
say to them, "Wo will employ you,
or "Wo will not employ you," aud
that is the end of the transaction.
Why should rtot tho representatives
of the people here assembled tell those
men, "We have no power and can
make no law that will make contracts
for you against the will of the parties."
Let that bo understood. Let these
men understand it, and let them un
derstand that they are at liberty either
to work or to refuse to work, or to go
nnd tike farms and be good citizens.
Wo can givo them homesteads out of
tho public domain ; this is all we
