communication from the supervising arch
itect of the treasury as to the nesessity of
additional vaults for the storage of silver.
Also a communication from the assistant
secretary of the interior with a report of
the government directors of the Union Pa

cerning legislation affecting that company.
Mr. Morrill, from the finance committee,
reported back favorably the bill to fix the
charge for passports at $1. Immediately
Mr. Allison, from committee on appro
priations, reported back the house bill
making appropriation to supply the defi
ciencies for the public printing, with an
amendment requiring the money to be ex
pended ratcably. The amendment was
agreed to and the bill passed.
Mr. Ingalls offered a resolution discharg
ing the committee on pensions from further
consideration of the bill introduced by him
last session to remove the limitation of pay
ment of arrears of pensions. He said that
as the committee has taken no action on it,
it seemed to him that there were either irre
concilable differences of opinion or disin

bring the bill before the senate. Laid

Mr. Culloni called up the conference re

said that he did so for the purpose of giv

tunity of making some remarks upon the
bill, after which (in accordance with sug

to the impracticability of action on it be

every interest which it had been created to
serve.it had made itself an inter-meddler in
almost every department of business; it had
refused to admit that it has been created to
serve the proper purposes and interests of
society, and it had assumed to control and
direct those interests. The managers of the
transportation system while making great
defects in it, had opposed all efforts of the
state and national governments to project
and establish reforms. The adoption of
the conference report, while it would not
accomplish all that he should like, would
afford the country an opportunity to test a

Mr. O'Donael! of Michigan, from the
committee on ventilation and aceoustics,
reported a resolution directing daily cleans-
ing of the ventilating pipes leading to the
hall of the house. In its report the com
mittee said: The great American habjt of
expectorating is fully exemplified on the
part of the members of this branch of the
law-making department of the government,
and your committee reluctantly, mourn
fully but firmly confesses inability to de
vise" measures which will put an end to the
reprehensible practice; a practice that low
ers the dignity of this august assemblage
and imperils the health and well-being of
the servants of the republic. Attention is
directed to the fact that there arc in this
chamber 216 nickel-plated cuspadors, but,
for some reason, they are ignored and the
perforations in the brass ventilators em
ployed as the receptacles of expectoration.
Mr. Buchanan said that notwithstanding
the language of the report the question of
cleaning the ventilating pipes was a very
serious one to membersseated in the center
of the hall.
3Ir. Gibson suggested that the resolution
should be referred to the committee on
civil service reform which was engaged in
cleaning all the departments of the gov
ernment. The resolution was adopted.
The house then went into committee of

Louis Railroad Co.. to pay the sum of
$153,600 in compromise of the claim of the
United States in a suit against that com
pany in the Middle District of Tennessee,
founded on certain matured and unpaid
interest coupons of bonds issued by the
company and held by the United States.
The nomination of J. C. Matthews, col
ored, to be recorder of deeds for the Dis
trict of Columbia, which was one of those
sent to the senate today, was referred to
the committee on the District of Columbia.
It is said to have been accompanied by a
message from the president giving his rea
sons for sending in the second time the
name of a man whose nomination the sen
ate had once rejected. It is reported that
the message recites that Matthews, by his
efficiency, has removed the prejudice at
first displayed against him.

English Grain Market.
LoNno.t, Dec. 21. The Mark Lane
Express' weekly review says the heavy
rain-fall early in the week interfered with
woik; later a severe frost benefitted the
crops. The deliveries of English wheat
continue small in the provincial markets.
Prices advanced a shilling and there is a
prospect of a further rise in the London
market. The demand of English wheat
has been better and rates advanced Od:
prices for foreign wheat are hardening and
there is nothing to prevent a material ad
vance during the next three months except
large shipments from the United States.
Oats was in better demand and Cd dearer.

Little Rock, Ark., Dec. 21. News is

houses of Messrs. George and Thomas
Harris, residing about a "half mile from
Vilonia. Nothing at all was saved and the
Harris brothers lost a great quantity of
corn, fodder, cotton 6ced" hay, etc. Xo
one has yet been arrested but suspicion
points to two suspicious characters.
A Melancholy Retrogression.
Xew York, Dec. 21. The Independent
furnishes the Associated Press a special
cablegram containing a complete copy of
Tennyson's poem called Lockslcy Hall,
ix years after. The poem contains 3G0
line, following the metre of Locksley
Hall, and written in the style of Lord
Tennyson's latest productions. It will
probably impress the average reader as a
melancholy retrogression from the standard
of Tennyson's geuiu- while in his prime.
Committed for Contempt.
Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 21. This
morning in the investigation of charges of
conspiracy and forgery, in connection with

mitted him for ninety Ways, or until further

Justice Perkins of the Indiana supreme
court. It is believed he can expose the
conspirators and all their work.

Trial of Train Wreckers.
Kansas Citt. Dec. 21. The case of
Geers. one of the six men chanrcd with
tmin wrecking on the Missouri Pacific,
was taken up in the district court at Wyan
dotte this morning. The prosecution," ex
pecting to try Lloyd's case first, were not
ready to try Goer, therefore dismissed the
charge against him of murder and of
wrecking, and presented an indictment
asainst him for the murder of Carlisle.
The defense announced the readiness of
Leary for trial and the prosecution took
the same action as in the case of Geer.
The defense moved to quash the new in
dictments as irregular, and a lengthy argu
ment was entered upon.
The theory of the motion was that the
defendants had never had a preliminarv
examination in the Carlisle case, and that
the district court was not the proper place
to commence proceeding in a criminal
case. The session was taken up with argu
ments and legal quibble by the lawyers.
The court reserved decisions on all motions
until tomorrow. At that time a motion
for change of venue for Lloyd, Hamilton
and Newport, against whom the evidence
is the strongest, will be argued. The trial
promises to be long drawn out The six
defendants must be tried seperately and
each case will probably occupy about a
