Washington, June 24 JTouar.
M Long Ma s., rising to correc
tioi of I lis Record, raid tha. in
Speech made eom weeks ago the gen
tleman from Ualifivnia (Henlf-y) bad
chaged that Charlts Franc's AdaruB,
of tne Union Pacific railroad, had
commitud grow Tiulations of law,
lie bad asked the gentlrman to specify
wl at these violations were, and the
only rpecifh reply nude by the gen
tleman was that Mr, Adams had him
self etit d that the mutter cf frne
paars aiven by the Union Pacific
cret th government some $-000 a
day. lie (Mr. Long) had denied the
correct ni as of this statement, and be
fonrd that his denial was altogether
tco broad. As it appeared from his
published speech, Mr. Henley had
said that it coat the company $2000 a
dav. Mr. Adams, In his teetimony
btlo;e a Sanate committee, Lad attUd
tli t free rafM'B coot ibo ompany
fL'i'OO a day. Hit this was not a vio
lation of Ihw, aud Ihe sta'ement was
act-inipunied by the modifying re
mark ihat many r.f the pneces were
toner! to the railroad t mploye. In
extnmling his remarks in the Record,
lit. Ilen'ey had triage what purported
to be a quya'jou frim Mr. Adiuus
hinr elf, conei-ting of some fifty-rig'it
linns and containing me very severe
retletti ns on tk Union Paciflo
and on Mr. Amos and the gent'enien
cornei t d with him in the construc
tion oi tne naa. it sjeins to be a
qu otation from a br.ok or mmphlut
written by Mr. Adams In 18(t!. He
found liiiou exjminntion that t' e (I ret
twenty fur lines of tl at alleged quo
tation were words which were taken
from that book or pamphlet, but the
' remaining thirty-four lines were words
which Mr. Adams bad never uttered
and never written and which were in
correct y and improptrly attributed
to him by the gentleman from Call
fornia. About eighteen inon'h" ago
an enormous pamphlet had been nub
lished containicg a revere criticism
on Mr. Adams. In this pamphlet
appeared the first twe nty-f iur lines of
the quotation. Then followed In dif
ferent type certain disconnected pas
sages which raa now been put in Mr.
Adams's month. lis knew that the
gentleman from California was not
guilty intentiona'ly of putting in Mr.
Adams's month words be had never
Uttered and be knew that the gentle
man would have no objection to hav
ing the correction made in the Record,
Mr. Henley said that the gentle
man was right in the ttotement that
be (Mr. Henley) had attributed cer
tain language to Mr. Attains which he
bad never uttered or writ'en. When
lie prepared his speech he rouiem-
Ibered that a good many years ago, Mr.
Adams had written a scathing arraign
ment of the Union Purine, its direc
tor, the Credit Mobillor and Oak
Ames. Buf ore the Heuhte Committee
Mr. Adorns had become not only the
apologist but the eulogist of the Union
Pacific, which he had proviouHly de
tounced. He (Mr. Henley) bad
i ougbt it a fair matter of criticism
rblm to oritictae Mr. Adams past
w)d present utterances. Not having
T Tkt' Adam? pamphlet at hand, he bad
S een obliueii to rely ou what tur-
ported to.be a correct copy of it in a
newspaper, end he had used it, not
dreaming t' at there was anything in
it that could not be properly attrib
uted to Mr. Adams. lie would make
the correction but he wanted to call
attention to the precise injury which
Mr. Adams fancied be bad eustu'nod
at bis bandB. In the part of
the quotation which was conceded to
be correct, the eeutimcnt and dentin
citt'lon was in exact accord and entire
harmony with that part which had
been Improperly attributed to Mr.
Adams, lie could not e nceive that
thatgontlotnan had sulfered Injuries
at hiB hands. There were other things
in his speech to which Mr. Adams
could address himself and complain
about If they woro not tiue. The log
leal result of the cotnpla nt Mr. Adams
had made was that he ba l no denial
to make of the charges.
Mr. Long tben took op the cha-ges
made in M r. Henicy's published speech
and denied thorn all in detail. The
first charo was that Cliarloe Francis
Adxuis aud bis co-directors had crim
inally violated the law in insuing .r,
000,000 6 per cent collateral trust
bonds in 1883 Thet transaction bad
Uko place b. fore Mr. Adams became
even a dirt ctcr. The em-ond chnrge
wa' that Mr. Adam" and the dirtc'ors
had violated the law in pnying divl
dendi in 1SWJ and 1HS4, in the teeth
of the exietenre of a flouting debt
of $13,000,000. It was rot a via
la'ion ot luw to pay a dividend when
there , was a H jat ng debt, ihe
thifchaige wes that Mr. Adums end
ditcVor IiihI violated the law in pkc

the O: eg it Short Lira-Company. 'Hut
wn poifectty legitimate, and had oc
curred Urea jcars before Mr. Admin's
connsetinu with the company. The
fourth charge was that Mr. Adams
and the directors hd deliberately de
traiuled the asseta bc'org'ng to the
government lien by anticipating the
Pyniont of tho third mortgaio bonds.
The answer to that was, that there
were no third mortgage lundsat all.
Mr. IUnley "Everythirg I allege
there can be proven."
The matter wai thea dropped, and
Mr. Randall 1V.1 moved to diBpeu'e
with the mor jtng hour.
Mr. Heed I Me. J -nqu red sarcastically
whether it was the intentiun to can
up the sun Iry civil bill.
"You will s e in the rfgn'ar coatee
of business," replied Mr. Randall.
"The other wing of the Democratic
part? b ems to have tiken charge to

"Oh, both wings will tl ip together

amid app'auae oa tha Democratic tide.

Ttie point of order was sustained

Mr. Oibsin W. Va. off-red an
an endment that nothing in the sec
tion shall be construed as subjecting
the appointees in tbe Bureau tf En
graving and Print ng to civil service
rait g. The object of bis amendment,
lie eaia, was to give a chance to tbe
party in power to control to some
extent the offlcne to be run by that
party. While he repudiated the doc
trine thet to the victors belonged tbe
spoil, be did claim that to the doini.
cant party belonged the light to rnn
an administration, for which it was
responsible. Ka sensible people ever
sent out an army otn.-erfd by the

J lie amendment ws r. ccwu.
Tbe section of tha- bill concernine
the coaet and jreoilutic survey having
been rtaohed, acrording to previous
agreement the gennrel debate was In
urder, and Mr. Ryan I Kos 1 proceeded
to criticise the bill. He said that there
had been no diminution of expendi
tures thus far by the Democratic ad
mlnietiation, while the expenditures
ior ii ie next hhchi ymr wnnid not be
loss than $300,000,000. In that esti
mate he took no account of the navv.
const defuners.an educetional bill, the
removal of the limitations on arrears
of pencious, the Mexican pension hill
and other pension bi 1 1. W bether the
revenues would suffice to meet the
expenditures would depend upon the
degree of general prosperity of the
country. Wbht lUHnrancs hail the
people tbnt the administration was
making an honeat effort to curtail the
expenditures when the House had de
elated that more then $30,000,000 of
the eetmutes wers not needed.
Mr. Herbert Ala 1 turned his at
tention to the ooeBt survoy. He eald
mat tiie survey had not completed
its work not from a want of labor
appropriations but from a special
which had prevailed in that bureau
from tho bewailing to procrastinate
aud continue indefinitely this work.
io gi t at tho lentfth ot time necessary
to finish the work exp rience ohoweu
that the calculations of tbe superin
tendents must be multiplied by lour,
and applying that tnlo t Piof. II 11
gard s calcu ation, it would take fully
twenty nix j esn from today, or 115
years from ihe date of organization
of the survey to complete i's work,
tor nltv veais Ihu survey had been
under civilian manage nent, while in
his (Mr. Herbert) opinion, it should
never have been taken from the con
trol ol tho navy department. He be
lieved that the bureau wished to spin
cut its eui vcy until it wrts given an
other clttsi ol w. rk tiut might be con-
iii ued indefinitely, lie severely criti
cised the Inrge amount expended, for
ui'ti.oe s ry topogtaptucal work.

referring to tbe reoent orler oi lbs
Lsnd Depaitmeat su'penJing execu

whatever purp sa there was, that
in order was the purpcp of tha Land
Department and not of tbe Secretary
of the Interior. With rmaid to tbe
absorption cf tbe public Units in the
South, Senator P,umb inquired why
tha Land Departmeut should ting'e
out tbe poor settler in tbe w.lds of
Dakota while igro i-g the organiza
tions that ate abashing the pnblio
lands in the Southern States. It
seemed singular to Senator Plumb
that an officer of the government
should be so seriously affected by
what Senator Plumb could only da
nominate a "political, geographical
and isothermal strabismus."
Senator George said the "absorp
tion" referred to in tbe South, so far,
at least, as Miaai'sippi was concerned,
was not in y o'aiioo o! tbe law, but in
pursuance of the law.

Grrmamtown, Tbnn., June 21 Tho
public school at this place closed on
last Friday. It has ben conducted by
the liuv. S. T. Lane, principal, as
sisted by Miss Jeseie Williams, who
are wor by of the highest praise. Mr.
Lane, as an educator, bos few equals
aud no superior. His bri .llant mind,
life with education, coupled with his
great ubility t) jmpart to others what
e himself knows, makes him a perfect
teacher. He has at ih's place prepared
three young ladies for teaching, all of
whom hold high grade certificates in
this and adjoining Sta'e. Of Miss
Williams we may simply say that she
is a voting lady o( most brilliant mind,
to whiob is added all those beautiful
cbaracteriatxi which tend to make a
pe'foot lady, just such as we need to
educate tbe mind and morals of our
children. The school bos had fifty
regular attendants, and has been con
ducted to the entire satisfaction of the
patrons. Putting two such educators
as Prof. Lane and Miss Williams in
this cbo3l speaks very highly for our
bosid of directors, and is tbe best
proof of their ability, sincerity and
honesty of purpose. Germantowa
should have a permanent school of a
high order, ana with two such teachers
if there is not such a school it will be
the fault of the citizens of the town
aud the suirounding country.
