HTht hUtorj ot tha deliberations of
the Joint congressional committee, wiucn
hM framed the moat important bill, per.
haps, which will have been abopted since
tba foundation of tho government, Is
now for the flnt time sketched.
The two committees of aeven members
each, appointed by the senate and the
house respectively, were instructed to
hold separate councils, with power to
"act" with each other. The senate com
mittee consisted of Senators Kdmunds,
Morton, Frelinghuysen, Conkllnr,Tlinr
man, Bayard and Hansom. The house
committee consisted of Representatives
Payne, llunton, Hewitt, Springer, Me
Crary, Hoar and Wlllard.
The committee met separately for some
time until each had prepared a bill in
tended to meet the emergency. The first
meeting of the house commltteec was
held on December 22, when a sub-committee
of two members (Springer and
Wlllard) was appointed to prepaie a
compilation of precedents on the subject
of counting electoral votes. This sub"
committee, thus deprived ot tho enjoy
raent ot the approaching holidays, began
work at once, and, with the assistance of
halt a dozen clerks, collated during the
holiday week a record of everything ever
said or done tn congress on the subject ;
also a record of the proceedings of the
lederal convention concerning the estab
lishment of the electoral college system
The compilation, which makes a printed
book of 800 octavo pages of brevier type,
was, together with a full index, completed
and admirably printed and bound In the
government printing office and mado
ready for the use of members of the joint
committee within two weeks Irom tho
time the committee ordered Its publica'
tion. Whatever can be said in other
respects of the management of the gov
ernment printing office, this feat Is worthy
the emulation of Appleron & Co. and the
The committees had no Joint confer
ence until Thursday, the lllh Inst. At
that time the senate committee and the
house committee had each prepared a
bill. Neither bill was binding ou any of
the members of the respective commit
tees, though a majority of either commit
tee would hare abided by Us own meas
ure if it had been practicable to make il
the basis ota mutual settlement. Both
bills, however, were necessarily experi
mental. The house bill provided for a tribunal,
to consist ol the five senior justices of the
supremo court, namely Clifford,
Swayne, Miller, Davis and Field, to
whom all objections which might be
made In the joint meeting of the two
house ot congress at the counting ot the
electoral vote should be referred. While
It waa believed by the house committee
that neither party in the house or the
senate could afford to reject the decision
- of these fire judges, yet the decision was
not to be binding uuless concurred in by
the votes of both bouses. This feature
of the house bill was opposed by the en
tire senate committee : it was therefore
deemed absolutely necessary to build on
the senate bill, which contained the
main features ot the measure which has
been reported by the Joint committee,
with this important exception it pro
vided tor four Benlor justices ot the su
preme court, and five senators and live
representatives one of the senators or
one of the representatives to be with
drawn by lot. This plan would have
made the committee consist of thirteen
Mr.Willard, of Michigan, objected to
the application ot the "lot" feature to
the senators and representatives, lor the
reason that it would give one or the
other body a preponderance of rotes,
lie suggested that it would be better to
apply that feature to the judges by se
lecting six of them and drawing by lot
five of the six. This proposition was re
garded with general favor. Alter numer
ous propositions and counter proposi
tions repecung the details of a new bill
and a very earness discussion of the con
stitutional questions Involved, the com
mittees, having apparently reached a
conclusion, adjourned until the uext Sat
At the Saturday eveulng conference of
the committee, the "lot feature" of the
bill was the subject of UUcusslon. The
senators, Including Bayard, thought it
the best that coma be devised and argued
that it was applied to aU the Juries in tb
country. The house Democrats were op
posed to It, and when the two commit.
tes met on Monday, the prospect for an
agreement was "gloomy iudeed."
rao positions submitted
The two committees went into joint
session promptly at eleven. Mr. Payne
stated the deciwouof the majority of the
bouse committe to be adverse to the
senate bill in its present form, on account
chiefly of the lot feature, but also on ac
count ot tome minor provisions. Two ot

About 3 p.ia. Lhe k-osturt iatorcued

The senate committee proceeded to
make a counter proposition in regard to
lhe Judicial part of the commission, sug
gesting that it shou'id consist ot the four
senior justices Clifford, Pwayne, Miller
and Davis these foor to seleet a fifth. A
long dialogue, which abounded in wit
and delightful bons mots, ensned con
cerning the bias, "if any," that these
justices might be supposed to have. The
states where they reside, their family
histories, there personal lives and predi
ctions, and especially their political
opinions, were subjected to an Inquiry
which formed one of the most amusing
episodes in the history of the Joint com
mittee's deliberations. 1 lie courtesy
with which this and all the discussions ol
the committee were conducted was mani
fested never more funnily than by the
use of the before mentioned words, "if
any," which were almost Invariably ap.
pended to a derogatory personal allusion.
These words appear numerously In the
bill and tho report, and they were em
ployed so frequently at tho meeting now
described that Senator Conkling made
sortie against them, which provoked
peals ot laughter. In the midst ot the
merriment a member ot the house com
mittee Intimated to the senators that the
words might properly be applied 'to the
tail end of the bill itself, concluding the
sentence, "The committee shall have
power to employ such persons as may be
necessary tor the transaction of its busi
ness and the execution of its powers"
with Hie words, "if any.'
In response to the senate proposition.
which was acceded to by the Republicans
of the house committee, the house Pein
ocrats asked for time until tho following
morning. Consent was reluctantly given,
as the whole committee were desirous to
reach a conclusion.
Again at ten o'clock Tuesday morning
the two committees assembled separately,
and at eleven met in joint convention. At
the ejinrat meeting of the house com
mittee it was voted to reject the last
proposition of the senators in reference
to the judges and to make a counter ,
proposition on behalf of the house. As
the Republicans of the committee still
adhered to the ground taken by the sen
ators the proposition was ot course that
ot the Democratic majority. It was as
To appoint the two senior Justices-
Clifford and Swayne they to choose two
other justices, each to name one, and the
four to name a fifth.
At tho meeting ot the joint committee
this plan was submitted and the senate
asked time to consider it. The house
committee thereupon retired.
ENDEAVORS TO AOltKI..
Now ensued the most Important meet
ing neia dv the senate committee. Sen
ator Conkling was especially concilia'
tory toward the Democrats of the com
mittec, and urged that it continue its la
bors during tho day, and the evening, if
necessary, until an agreement should be
bad. The differences seemed so slight
that it would, in hi opinion, be very un
fortunate it the committee should he un
awe to reconcile them. Still, neither
this appeal nor the efforts of other sena
tor Immediately sufficed. After mature
consideration the house proposition was
disagreed to, and the two committees
met together again about four p.m., in
the senate judiciary committee room
the usual rendezvous. There Senator
Edmunds explained the uoncoiicurrencc,
and the committees immediately sejm.
rated until six o clock.
.at mar, uour senator feumuuus an
a, it. .i t- . . .
nounced to the house committee that
Senator Conkling had submitted a propo
sition which the senators had agreed to :
to take the following four justices, Clif
ford, btroug, Miller and Field, and allow
them to choose the fifth.
Senator Conkling urged this plan as the
fairest which could be adopted. Senater
r.duiundai pointed out the ireoirranhlekl
significance of it, alluding to the fact that-
in the first place, none ol the justices
named live in the states where either of
the disputed candidates voted for as
president or vice-president reside : and
next, to the fact that their abodes are
widely separated. Clifford lives In Maine,
Strong iu Pennsylvania, Miller In Iowa
and Field in California. Senator Bayard
earnestly appealed to the joint committee
to adopt the new proposition, hunting
upon its complete and absolute lair
ness. At fast, as the hour was late, It was
decided to grant Hi house Democrats the
rest of tho night tor rt iWtiou.
Wednesday morning the clouds cleared
away. The house committee, assembling
early in iu room, adopted almost Hume,
diately a resolution to tho effect that the
senate proposition in reference to the
judges should be accepted, and the com
mlttee proceeded forthwith to the senate
committee room to inform the latter
committee of the fact. This having beeu
done there were .UU several detail, of
the bill w nlsh had not been agreed upon,

the deliberations, save that of an oc

an impression upon his rusrged will.
Nearly all the senators and members
approached him, and courteously ex
pressed the hope that he would join his
signature with theirs. He remained im
movable, saying only : "1 am not at this
moment able to state what course I shall
take. Il is possible I may vote for this
bill. But 1 reserve my judgment until
after maturer reflection."
The signatures of all other members of
the joint committee were affixed to the
bill and report, and the next few lilnutes
were spent in mutual congratulates.

DEAD OR ALIVE ?

(Curboudttl Observer, Friday.)
For tho past week when the senatorial
question wa not upon the lips of our
people, the disappearance last Monday
ol one ol our attorneys, Mr. (). W. Cat-
uu, and the suspicious of foul play at
tached thereunto, has been the favorite
theme of discussion. IjuU Monday
moruing Mr. Catlin hired a horse at Ava,
to go out into Vergenunes towushlp. a
few miles east ot Ava. on legal business.
Mr. Catlin called on Mr. Uossoii, of that
township, aud left his house about seven
o'clock in tin, evening. Shortly
after leaving two pistol shots
were heard ueur the bridge across
the Beaucoup, h, the t'row settlement.
The uext day the horso which Mr. Catlio
rode was tound iu cornfield uear by.
Suspicious that hu Imd been foully dealt
with were at once aroused, and search
was lustilutcd. A hat belouglug to Cat
lin was found on a tump uear the bridge,
i bis seemed to confirm the belie! of foul
play, and hi brother-in-law, Mr. Charles
tiager, of this plat, wa llegrphHl the
tlrcuiustaiiCM. ;un Wednesuuy Mr
Gager went up and bad the Beancoup
thoroughly dragged at the bridge and
or a mllo. below it, but without finding
further trace of Catlln.
The commonly accepted theory in this
place Is that Catlln has "skipped ;" that
the pistol .hols, the loose horse and the
old hat were but part and parcel of a
plan to leave the country for tho coun
try' good with a belief behind that he
had been done for, and In fresher fields
he would begin life anew, ratlin hasn't
a good name here, generally speaking,
and this serves to strengthen Die belief
that there is skull-duggery In tho matter.
It Is believed that alter killing hlmsell,
his corpse took unto itself new life, and
walked to Klkvlllc or Du (Juuin, where it
look the St. Louis train, and that it might,
now be found in an advanced stage of de
composition, traveling towards the cates
of sunset. He had a check for $1,000 In
his pocket on a St. Louis bunk, and it is
probsble that steps will be taken to see
whether he has drawn the money. He
owed several hundred dollars here, and
has been counted very slippery ; but it
might be that giving a dog u bad name
has had a good deal to do in putting into
circulation much tulk about lit tn. Tho
worst part of the matter Is that he leaves
n wife here without a cent ot money.
Should Mr, Catlin's corpse be found or
appear at this office, we shall make cheer
