WABUihOTOM, April 20. In spite of
the reiterated assurances of some of
the House leaders to the contrary, the
prev iling opinion in C ngress is that
this will be a long session. Senators
have generally made up their minds
thut they will be kept here until Au
gimt. The appropriation bills, about
w hich the most controversy is likely
to urine between the two houses, are
vet to be passed, and Senators declare
lhat they do not intend to be hurried
in the consideration of these meas
ures, even if they should be required
. to remain until fall.
TUB LABOR INVESTIGATION.
The initial meeting of the special
committee to investigate the labor
troubles occurred to-day at the Con
gressional Hotel. A largo number of
spectators were present, among whom
were Gen. Swaim, attorney for Jay
Gould, MesHrs. Turner, Hayesand Mc
Dowell of the Execntive Board of the
Knights of Labor; Mr Burnett, Secre
tary of the Knights of Labor; Mrs.
Charlotte Smith, President of the
Woman's liabor League, and Vrs.
Heed, Secretary, and Mr. LeeCrandall,
editor of the Nato)ial View, a
labor paper. Mr. Powderly took
the witness chair. He was
dressed in a gray checkered
suit. II has a large head, partly
bald on top, and wears a thick, long,
light brown mustache. He has
piercing, bright, steel-colored eyes, a
lull face and clear complexion. Gen
eral questions were put by the chair
man regarding the causes of unrest
and the disturbances between capital
and labor. Mr. Powderly said that
the causes were numerous, and cited
the low salaries, long hours of service
and exactions of labor.nir men in
working for corporations. He stated
i at length the objects and aims
I of the Knights of Labor. He assured
; the committee that if it were found
that Knights of Labor in the West
had violated the laws of labor, the or-
v ganization would be as ready to help
' punish them as it is to aid them in re-
J, dressing wrongs. With the organiza-
tioii the laws of the land stood high

TUB WIilL I,A A BRA CLAIMS.
The Senate in executive session to
day, by a vote of 32 to 27, ratified a
treaty with Mexico, setting aside the
ff rnier awards in the famous Weil
La Abra cases, and reaffirming the ad
judication of these claims. The Weil
claims wero for cotton destroyed, and
the Lobra claims foi the destruction
of a mine in Durango by Mexican
soldiers. Both claims are nearly
twenty-fivo years old. The Mexican
government paid $800,000, f 400 000 of
which was distributed by Secretary
Kvarts against the protest of the Mex
ican government to claimants,
and S 400,000 was held up
to await the action of Con
gress, evidence of fraud '.warrant
ing such interference. President
Arthur and President Cleveland both
urged the ratification of the treaty
concluded to day. The instrument
simply allows Mexico to file her newly
discovered evidence before a new
irilttinul T'tia jv'aimo Iiuha in a mn
iority of cases passed out of the hands
of the original possessors into those of
speculators in Washingt n, who con
tracted with the lawyers and lobbyists
to prevent the reopening - of
the question or the ratification
of a new treaty. Many prominent
Senators opposed the treaty on the
grounds that it was a dangerous pre
cedent to set aside the findings of a
court of arbitration between nations,
no matter what the presumptive evi
dence of fraud might bo. Other Sen
ators were influenced by motives of a
more personal character It was rrac
tically a fight between Senator's Mor
gan and Voorhees, the former being
counsel for the Mexican govern
ment, the latter for the claim
ants. A brother-in-law of Sen
ator Sherman would have
1 received J30.000 in case the original
award was sustained. Another rela
tive had a contingent interest in the
claims Senator Vest's law partner
was also interested. Senator Logan
had a constituent, a lady, who ap-
..ll A- 1." .1
prmeu nuccustuuiiy w ills sympaiuies,
as her financial fate was at stake in
the matter. The debate was exceed
ingly thorough and the result wsa
surprise, as it was expected that the
old award would stand.
THB LOUISVILLE POHTOFHC FIGHT.
The people outside of Louisville
are taking a part in the nostomce
troubles in that city. Senator Black-
Durn who was adverse to the appoint
ment of Mrs. Thompson, has since
Friday received a number of tele
grams from his friends in various
parts of the State, entering a protest
against ine recommendation made by
Senator Beck and Representativd
Willis, who are rponsiole for the
appointment. It is loudly insinuated
that Mr. Beck may have some diffi
culty in being returned to the Senate.

t'onnnltallon With the Authori
ties About the Ntrlke.
Chicago, III , April 20 A confer
ence lasting ovei an hour and a half
was held this evening between the
Exe.'wive Committee of the Switch
men's Union, consisting of thiea per
sons, an J Sheiiff Hancbett. The com
mittee s'ated in full detail their side of
the cfe, and endeavored to show the
eher.ll that there was no reason why he
should side with the lailroad authori
ties or take active measures to tesi t the
railroad comraaies in the movitg of
their trains. The sheriff on his pirt
siigKPft'd mea-mrei towaid a com-promi-e,
but nothing in that line was
definitely settled excepting that It was
agreed that the sheriff should see the
railroad officials to-morrow with a
view of arriving at some basis f r a
settlemeLt of the difficulties. The
sheriff says that he was very much
pleased with the conduct of
the committee who conferred with
him, but he felt UDable to give
any opinion as to whether his con
ference with the railroad officials will
be likely or not ta result in a final set
tlement of the strike. He was asked
whether or not to relieve the Town of
Lake authorities tomorrow from the
p rotection of railroad property and
answered prsilively that he would
not do so under the present circum
stances, but did no; know what he
might do should circumstances feein
to justify it after to-morrow.
Gov. Oglesby to-night said: "The
only understanding arrived at thus
far is to have the work of preserving
the peace in the bands of the sheriff
and the police authorities of Chicago
and the town of Lake. From what I
have seen I am of the opinion that
the strikers and their sympathizers
can be cootrpl'ed by the civil towers.
The railroad off! Mala will to-morrow, I
suppose, try to raise the blockade. In
any event, I shall remain in the city
nntil to-morrow night at least.
Attempted Outrage Upon Old
Woman Heavy Land Puiehasea.
Israel al to thi ArriAL.1
Birmingham, Ala.., April 20. The
Pratt mines community, six miles out
of town, is excited over the at empted
outrage of Mrs. Gould, a lady sixty
years old, wife of one of the mining
bosses, by a young negro man yester
day. She had gone to a spring near
ner come witn a bucket to get water,
when the negro came out of the
bushes near by, seieed her and threw
her down. She resisted gamely
and screamed, and help came
in time to rescue her. The
nero got away and was at large at
las', accounts with men and blood
hounds pursuing him. It seems that
nobody at the mines knows who he is.
A local syndicate, asms of the mem
bers of which aie in a position to get
the correct tip, has bought $50,01:0
worth of ground on the edge of town
by the side of the purchase made by
the Kansas City railroad men a few
days ago. Other sales have been
made in the same neighborhood on
the prospect of a railroad depot and
yards and shops. There is talk of a
grain elevator, too.
The stockholders of the Avonda'.e
Land Company have granted to Mr.
H. F. Debardelben and associates
right of way through the company's
property just eaet of the city for a
railroad, and the best grounded con
jecture is that the Georgia Central's
projected extension from Goodwater
will be the bentfiuiary.
Carter Jones, the Louisville and
Nashville engineer who shot and
killed the negro brakeman Dave Jack
eon in the yard here yesterday, is to
have a preliminary trial Friday. He
is cow at liberty on $1000 bond. There
promises to be some conflict of testi
mony at the tricl. The negro
who witnessed the killing, tells it as
if Jones looked Jackson up and killed
him premeditatedly, but several white
railroad men, ahoeye witnesses, make
it out to be a case of self-defense. It
is a well established fact that the men
had a colTsicn about some train mat
ter at Morris' Station, up the road, a
few days ago,and that the negro
knocked Jones down with a rock.
Jones belongs to one of the best fami
lies of Montgomery, and stands well
on the road.

by extensive dums built by a club of
manufacturers as a storage place for
water. East Lee village, whoso half
dozen paper mills a'U xituutcd on the

accident when the Hood was pouring
down the Btree s, the water being
from four toaix feet deep, and bring

of movable property. People "fled to

LiiK, Mass, April 2I. Ah near as
can be ascertained Mud I'ond dam
gave way at 5;:'0 o'clock this mor ing.
It had shown r.igns of weakness for
some time. Parties respon-ible, or
owning the privilege r-f its water sup
ply, had been notified, hut nothing
was done. The calamity is the result
of carelessness. The channel gulled
by the rushing water is from 60 to 200
feet wide, and while the evidences of
its terrific power are plainest as the
pond is approached, the most serious
loss of life and property occurred
three miles from the lake, in
East Lee village. The water
reaches a stream on which
manufactories are built by a brook
running through the woods and thinly
settled farm land, and there was not
much of life or many buildings to be
lost until the vil age was reached.
Here it wrecked Edwin Sturgis's barn,
swept away a bridge spanning the
brook, which is but Hinall, as it runs
naturally from a small pond, and then
rushed down the channel of ihe
stream on which dwellings and manu
factories are located. Couch A Oak
ley's millwright shops, J no. Daniel's
manufactory of paper machinery and
A. N. White's carriage shop) were also
destroyed. White's family, consisting
of himself and wife, agetl forty-eight
and forty-five years resrHietively, V eir
daughter Ida and an infant son were
in bed when tho Hood struck the
house and were all killed by the
building crashing in. All the bodies
except that of the baby have lccn re
covered. Theodore King antl wife
and Mrs. Charles King rushed from
their house and were carried otf by
the flood antl drowned Had they
remained in the house they would
have been saved as the building was
not destroyed. Simeon Dowd, agetl
sixty, is known to have been drowned
but his body has not been found.
Farther down the stream John Mc
I aughlin's machine shops, Harrison
Garfield's mill, anil Farmer Deck
er anil Sabin's mills were
all ruined. The boilers and all tho
basement machinery were taken out
by the Hood and carried away like so
much wood-work. John Vernon's
paper mill was also gutted. This dis
aster will throw a great many hands
out of employment and literally paral
ize all East Iee industries. The loss
in property is fully K'OO.OllO, while the
expense of repa ring roads and other
costs that must fall on the town will
