in this line is tbe notsd Brown, who for
twenty year bad no rival." Ho alludes to
Brown, tbe sexton of Graco Church, and
says it Is Brown's gift of flunkeyism which
makes hirn a success, as- he is immensely
corpulent, besides being uncouth and
rough in appearance. He thus describe
Brown camo to New York a poor car

but ho was to hoavy for ordinary service,
and bo had no ambition to rise above a
chest of tools. He got Into politic, aud

with those who patronize the vehicles on

Church was removed up town, and became
the center of rellglnlis fashion. Brown
was succenful n Retting tho office of sex

hi fortune was mari. He h-n)na ryj

This leads me to remark that a man In
Brown's position can do much toward In

an ambitious ladv Is making out her list

Special Dispatch to tbe Missouri Republi-
Sprinofield, Feb. 27. A large amount
of legislate vo work has been dispatched
to-day, and several important bills Intro
duced. In tho senato must of tbe discus
sion was In tbo consideration of senato bill
119, to fix the liability of common carriers.
A number of senators delivered opinions
pro and con in connection with the bill;
tbo argument for it being mostly that by
its pasiago tho agriculturist of tbo state
will take it as an expression of tbe feeling
of the legislature in sympathy with their
war upon railroads, and tbe objection to
it principally that it Is unnecessary, as the
supreme court has rendered several de
cision regarding tho liability of the
railroad as common carriers that covor
the provisions of tho bill, and that it
is unjust to make common carriers sub
ject to common law liabilities and tho ad
ditional ono of insurance. If the bill
passes it will be more for the purpose of

LOG AN. i
1 In a list of tho membors supposed to bo
affected by tho evidence taken by tho
committee ot the houso of repreiontatives
is tbo name John A. Logan.
a (In December, 1807, Mr. Logan made
an arrangement with Mr. Ames to pur
chase ten shams of stock, commonly
known as shares of tho Credit Mubilier or
Ainorica, upon tho recoramomlaiion or
Mr. Ames that tbo stock was valuable,
and payment could bo made In considera
tion or iho agreement at any time, and the
stock was nuvor delivered. In June fol
lowing Ames showed to Logan an account
in which ho credited him with two divi
dends arising from tbo stock, aubsequent
to it purchase of 80 and 00 pcr-cent. re
spectively, from which ho deducted $1,000,
tbe price of tho itock, and gavo Logan a
check on the torgeant-at-arms or the
houso for the balance, $320, which check
wat paid on tbo 10th of July following.
It having become doubtful whether it was
good stock or whether tbere.would nut bo
u difficulty about it, Logan paid Ames
the amount of money received on tho
checks and Intcrnt theroon, stating to him
ho had concluded not to tako stock, to
which Mr. Amns consented and here the
transaetlon ended; Mr. Logan having no
further interest in it. Messrs Log an and
Ames were mombers of tbe bouse of rep
resentatives at tbo date of the transaction
The testimony does not affect Logan in
any sense which would call for action of
the senate; if it possesses Jurisdiction over
acts happening boforo bis election to tbe
senate, a question on which undo? tho
finding of tbo committee it is unnecessary
to express an, opinion.

membor of tbo senate. Mr. Conkling doe
not appear to havo beon connected in any
way with the stock of tbe Credit Mobilier
or tho Union-Pacific Raiload corapany,and
consequently i In no way (Tec tod iheroby.
On or about December, 1807, Senator
Wilson, on bohalf or bis wife, at tho In
stance of Ames and upon tho advice of
irenut, contracted tor twenty tbare
Credit Mobilier paying therefor in casb,
$2,000, which belonged to his wife, Ames
giving a receipt for the same and a guai
untee for payment of 10 per cent, interest
thorcon. Mr. Wilson bocatno dissatislicd
witn transaction from what bo bad learned
of tho differences in tho manugoment of
tbo Credit Mobilier and tbe Union Pacific
company, and concluded to regard tbe
transaction as complete. He so stated to
Ames, who consented to so regard it, and
an adjustment was tbercforo made.
It was by contract by hor
husband, and Mr. Wilson had no right or
interest, only such as grow out of these
facts. Whether tho action is or is not In
law, to be regarded as that of his own or
that ol lilt wifo is not deemed material
It is certain that tho money invested, was
contributed by friends to his wife, that bo
treatou 11 as belonging to nor, considering
ft an investment for hor benefit, and tbu
money was nnnlly repaid to, and disposed
of, by hor. Wilton does not appear to

ter ot tbe Credit Mobilier, nor does it ap
peirr mat no was nwaro or bad roason to
suspoct tbat Ames had any object In rec
ommonding tbo investment, other than
tliat of friendship.
