FR1EM OF SUBSIDIES.
Hepert of the Pan-Electric I-restl-ratios
IBFIOUI. TO TBI iPMiL.I
Washington, Jane 24. The Ameri
an Shipping League met at Williard'e
Hall, in tl is city, yesterday, far the
purpose el leorgAbization aod to in
augurate more vigorous and effective
meaf ures to promote the shipping in
terests. They strongly advocate tbe
Pacific and other nitif tutsidiee, and
the pas aje of the' Negloy b.'),"which
grants a tub:idy of 3n ctn's par regis-,
tered ton lor tach thousand miles
traveled by mercria'tt vea'ela of ihe
United Stt'es. In tbe debates the
administration of the Democratic
party and C nure8?man Duon'a Ship
ping Commiltee were severely criti
c's d and inouicd f ir their opposi
tion t-y subsid es. To envb8si their
hostility to Mr. Dnnn, who is very
firm in his oppct-it oa to all subsidies,
they made den. Dant'ridae McRte, of
ArlanFas, pn eldent of me assoristio",
and Geo. D. C. Govan, Mr, Dunn's
competitor for Cingress, vice-president
Gen. McRne etiong'y favors
sub3id:es acd the in'ereoce is that
Goven dofslo, and that the subsidy
is to be sharply prts'.nt d throughout
the country this year, aid fspecii-l'y
in Arkanins, where tbe chairman of
the shipping committee resides, and is
a randidale for re-election. A com
mittee represi nting the league railed
upon Dunn today and presented a
copy of thfir resolution urging the
passage of tbe "Negley bill." Mr. Dunn
regards tbe appointment of Gen.
Govan, his competitor to tbe vice
presidency ( f tha It ague, as a de( la
ration of war upon him by the league,
because of bis hostility to tbeir sub
sidy measure, and says ha is rfaJy to
meet tbem and their candidate on
TH PAN-ELKCTBIC INVESTIGATION.
It is probable that tbe special com
mittee, composed of nine members of
the House ot Representatives, with
Mr. Boyle, of Pennsylvania, as chair
man, appointed to investigate tbe or
ganization aod aflairsof the Pan Elec
tric Telephone Uomp ny, will submit
its report to tbe House within a day
or ro, posub'y tcm-rrcw The repott
of tbe minority, eigned by all the Re
publican members of tbe committee,
was completed two or thie- weeks ago,
but it was only tbis wetk that Mr.
Boyle comple ed the views tbat
are tubscrihed by all of tbe
fire Democraic . membeis, and
which constitute the majority
report. It is int-ndod that there t-ha'l
be a final meeting of the full co aim it
tee before tbe reports a-e sufcnvt'ed to
the House, at wh'ch mnetinsr tbe re
port will tie read, o thtt there will
be no further quts ion as to their regu
larity or legitimacy. The report of
the minority will, it is faid, comment
on the testimony of Senator Hiirrip,
At'.orney General Garland and Solicit
or Generd Goode, and characterize
their manaur -? witnesses us suspi
cious and evaaive. Tbe majority re
port instiflfs every action ai being
that of a private citizen, and finds no
Impropriety in tbeir action.

W F. t -r Kfforl ! Re Made f
Z t auaidrr h Tariff bill.
' Wasbisotom. June 24. Aa Mr.
Randall observed to-dar, both wings
of the Democratic paity "ilapped to
gether" in the caucus to-night. The
attendance was law, nearly all of tbe
Derxocra'ic Reprei en ativee in tbe
i ity being pree cnt, and tbe proceed
ings were harmonious throughout.
Contrary to common expectation,
nothing waieaid directly about tbe
tariff or the pension tax proposition.
Tne state ot thebnsine aia the House
was dieens ed, and Speaker Carlisle,
by request, ran over the calendar,
calling attention to the a' most in
extricable confusion of special
orders on every subject of general irn
por'ance. Afier bearicr tbe state
ment the cances decided to select a
commitae of three ni'.nibere, which
should be charged witb the duty of
selecting and pushing t) tbe point of
action such of the measures as it
should deem piopsrto kt"e mpt to pars,
and Messrs. Car i-le, Morrieon and
Randall were named as menib'H of
tbe committee. The sentiment of tbe
caucus seemed ti bu in favor of pass
ing the appropriation bills and tbe bill
dec'aring forfeiture of lard grants, and
then adjourning, torn after the se
lection of the ronmittre, Mr. Randall
rose and fsked wbat tbe ac
tion of the caucus meant,
whether it meant adjournment,
ry July 15th. There was a choi us of
"yes, yes," frr m all sides. Rather re
gretfully it wta observed that . Mr.
Randall assumed thtt tbe action
meant also that tbe appropriation bills
and a few bills already on the calendar
would be the only meesureg likely t
receive action at this session, and to
tbis assumption there was again ex
pressed a heaity assent, while, as
before stated, no direct reference was
made to the tariff tbe members pres
ent at the caucus came away under
tbe impression tbat there would be no
further effoit made this session to
cocsider any la-iffbill.

vention to tbe provision of sec: ion
629, which gives the Circuit Court
cognizance of any suit to recover the
contents of any promissory note or
other cboee in action in favor of an
assignee unle-s the same may have
been prosecuted in tuch court to re
cover such con'ents, if no assignment
his been made, except io foreign bills
of exchange; and it re-erac's and de
clares said proviso to be in full force.
Its provisions are net to apply to any

JOIIX BRIGIII'S MANIFESTO
TO THE ELECTORS OF CENtRAL
Hli Position on the Home Rale
Scheme Why lie Is Opposed,
to the BUI.
London, June 24. Mr. John Bright
has it sued the following manifesto to
the electors of Central Birmingham:
Gentlemen Thanking you for hav
ing elected me in November las, I am
now moet unexpectedly foreed to ad
diees yon again. Since November a
f ingle question has occupied tbe at
tention of the House of Commons
and the country. It relates to the
future government of Ireland, and
consists of two bills which were thrnst
upon Parliament aDd the country by
tbe government. One of tbose bills
was rejected, the other was with
drawn. We are not told by Mr. Glad
stone, or his colleagues, how muor or
how Jittla ot th unfortunate pro
posals will reappear in the next' Par
liament. We are asked to pledge our
selves to a principle which
may be innocent or - meet dan
gerous, as may explained In future
bills. I cannot give stub, a pledge.
Tee experience of the P:st three
months has not Increased my confi
dence in the wisdom of the adminis
tration, or in its po)iy respecting the
futuie government of Ireland. We
have before us a principle wh ch Mr.
Gladstone and his supporters do not
explain. I will nrt pledge myself to
what I do not understand and can
not prove. In 1872 I wrote
a letter to n Irish gent'e
man, from whlJh I extract these
short sentences : "To have two legis
lative assembled in the United King
dom would nvrk intolerable mischief.
No sensible'tnan can with for two
such asrembttas who does not wish
that tbe KingKm shall become two or
men-d natiore entirely separate from
each other." I still adhere to the
opinion, itprssible, more firmly than
before. I do not oppose tbe views
of the government on account
Uf Jvigland more than on account of
Ireland. No Irish Parliament can be
so powerful or just as the United Ira-
ferial Parliament at Wett'ninirter.
mnr.ot intrust the peace and

that tbe tuflVring and diecon'ent ei

New York, June 24. United States
Senator Warner Miller, addressing the
graduating class at Union College,
Schenectady, yes'erday, on "The Po
sition and Duties of Educated Men in
a Republic," gave particular stress to
the importance of young men taking
an interest in political ua.ters. The
Senator raid: "I know there is much

which is to keep educated men and
scholars from taking part in public
