TO II UNSEATED.
Efforts are likely to be renewed to un
seat the three Liberal Republican chair
men of house committees, vU: Banks,
Blair and Farnsworth. Both the Repub
lican organs In this city to-day express
dissatisfaction with the continuance of
theso tjcntlomen in official positions, as
chairmen of committees. The Republican
attributes the tote of the house Monday
against accepting the resignation of Mr,
Banks to the argument of Mr. Brooks and
censures Republican members for follow
his counsel. There is warm feeling on
the subject, because the action of the
bouse is regarded as implied censure on
the senate in the cues of Trumbull, Bum
ner and others.

The Republican senatorial caucus has
been postponed till to-morrow.
The action of the committee
of five appointed yesterday baa not
authentically transpired. The opinion,
however, is freeley expressed that Trum

chairmanships of their respective commit
tees, but that the minority will have a

RESOLUTIONS.
Mr. Roosevelt offered a resolution in
struclng the committe on the District of
Columbia to report tbe present debt of the
district. In the course of the discussion
Mr. Rosevelt declared his conviction that
the work undertaken by the present board
of public works, cannot be completed for
less than $'.0,000,000.

vote of 74 to 92. The esolution was then
adopted. Bills Introduced and referred
were as follows
Authorixlng tbe Washington, Cincin
nati and St. Louis ralroad to extend its
road into the District it Columbia.
To provide for the speedy construction
of n ship canal of Irrge capacity around
tbe falls of Niagara on tbe American
side.
To amend an act of the 27th of May,
1872, for the abatenent and repayment of
taxes on distilled spirits in Dona ae
st roved by casualty.
Mr. Piatt' slated the intention of tbe
navy department was to divide those ten
viili into threa classes. One class to
consist of vessels of J.600 to 1,800 tons and
to carry from 12 to 14 guns j one from
1,200 to 1,500, with 8 or 9 guns, and one
from 800 to 1,000 tons with C or 7 guns.
Mr. Hale advocated bis amendment con
trasting the merits of public and private
shipyards. U warned the bouse that if all
these vessels were built in navy yards
they would cost 110,000,000, instead of $3,
000,000, and contended that better vessels
could be built in private ship yards, In
quicker time andwitb far greater economy
tban in navy ya'ds.
The morning hour expired, and tbe
bill went over till to-morrow.
Tbe house then, at 2:20 p.ra, went into
committee of tbe whole, and distributed
tbe president's annual message among the
appropriate comaittees.
Tbe question rf referring tho subject of
Postal Telegraph provoked some discus,
sion. Mr. "Wood preferring to have it re
ferred to a special committe, and Messrs
Dawes and Beck fsvoring its reforono to
committee on arpropriatien, it having
been before that wmmitte last year.
Mr. Nlblack, member of the appropria
tion committee, regarded tbe postal
telegraph matter as one of tbe gravest
questions before iongress. It bad always
been to him a startling proposition, and
although he wasgrowlng accustomed to it,
he was still unriconciled to it, and desired
to be classed as an opponent to the
measure. "Whle be favored leaving the
matter with th committee on appropria
tions this sesson, bo would be prepared
next congress to advocate its referrence
either to a select committee, or some
standing committee, who would have
more time at its disposal than the com
mittee on appropriations.
Tbe matter vas referred to a committee
of nine, and tie committee rose and the
house adjournid.
