clause in the army appropriation
bill. They copy the clause agreed to bv
the house of representatives last session,
that the jurors test oath be likewise sim
ply abolished by insertion of a repealing
clause in the legislative execution, and
judical appropriation bill; and that the
provisions men incorporated py the house,
in the same bill, amendatory of the law
in regard to the mode of impanelling fur

ocratic party this session. In addition to
the two last named clauses, there will be
recommended for . incorporation into
the legislative, executive and judicial
appropriation - bill the following:
an appropriation for expenses of courts:
A series of clauses, the effect of which. If
enacted, will be to repeal the existing au
thority for the appointment of chief super
pervisors and deputy marshals for elec
tions, and to restrict the functions and
power of two suiicrvisors of different poli
tics, whose appointment in the present
manner will continue to be authorized,. to
those of witnesses and challenges only
It will also be provided that these super
visors must he residents and duly quali
lied voters in tne precincts where they are
to serve. The jurisdiction of federal
courts to punish such frauds in
elections tor representatives to congress as
may ue reported py a supervisor or other
citizen, is not to be lntetfered with, nor
will the caucus be advised to disturb in
any manner the existing law, known as
the enforcement act, relative to suffrage
and other civil rights. -
The recommendations above outlined
will be reported ta a joint caucus of dem

Washington, March 26. The senate
committee inquiring into the alleged
frauds in the late elections (Senator Wal
lace, chairman), today examined Mr.
Gorham, late secretary of the senate. lie
said tnat dunng the congressional cam
paign of 1878, about $106,000 was raised
for republican campaign purposes; $93,000
from federal officers and employes by
voluntary contribution, and the remainder
from friends of the party holding office.
Perhaps $7,000 or $8,000 came from con
gressmen No contributions were asked
from the national banks as such. A can
vass among the wealthy friends of the
cause in New York city resulted in ob
taining about $18,000. . There may be
some bankers contributing. Some lady
employes of the government insisted on
contributing. Uf 100.000. zzs.uou was
expended for documents, about $,200 was
paid employes of the committee, and $8,
000 for furniture and general expenses.
This left $55,500. of which $54,000 was
sent to different states, and $1,500 paid to
speakers for expenses. Ol the balance,
$5,700 was lost by the failure of the German-American
National bank, and $300
remains on hand. - The committee takes

Washington. I C, March 27. The
Wallace Senate Committee to-day resumed
inquiry into the election matters of 1878.
Ex secretary of the senate? Gorham, pro
duced the books of sulscriptons in his
department, and a list of moneys sent to
different states. The national committee
aided southern congressional districts
with an average of $663, and fifty northern
districts with an average of $721. No aid
was given to 212 districts. The contribu
tions of federal officers in Washington
went to the state committee. The sub
scriptions in the book in the treasury de
partment are headed with the name of
Secretary Sherman, those in the postoflice
department by the second assistent post
master general; in tne- agricultural do
partmunt by Commissioner Leduc, and in
the sixtn auditors onice, uy the sixth
auditor. Money sent to the state of In
diana was put in the hands of Mr. Blair,
with witnesses, recommending as to
its use. The general policy was to devote
money to close districts. Altout nine dis
tricts in Ohio were thus helped. The li
brarian of the senate helped Gorham to
compile a sort of republican campaign
text book and was paid S-ou. The work
did not interfere with his official duties.
No deduction was made in his salary as

the committee. The witness thought the
subscriptions of the treasury department
might amount to fiz.oou orfia.ooo in
stead of $7,000 or $0,000 as stated yester
day. About $25,000 was subscribed in the
post-ornce department. Very little was
got trom the interior department. James
W. Kerns, United States marshal of the
eastern district of Pennsylvania, testified he
thought as tar as the United states super
