To the Editor of the Herald and Mail.
I have been thinking for some time of

necessary to mention, I have deterred ll

you Home lime that you would not get from
the paper. The great question of impor
tance here, and the one tnat has excited
most talk in a!l circles, both congressional
and private, and upon the streets, hotels,
etc., hua bt-en and Is, the Kilbourn case Y- n
know Kilbourn was went to Jail for refusing
to answer certain questions propounded to
rum by one of the investigating committee..
Somedays ago Kilbourn applied for a writ of
nauea corpus, and the writ was granted nini
by Judge Carlter of this district. Thompson,
nergeam-ai-Arms ot tne House, obtained
time from the court to report to and get In
structions from the House, under and by
tinue oi wnose autnonty ne Held itlloourn
The question was referred by the House to
the Judiciary committee, which made two
reports a majority an t a minority report
the Chairman being with the minority. The
majority recommended that the .Serif. ut
at-Arms muke a respectful return to the
writ, .fating by what authority he held
Kilbourn. but not to take the bour of Kit

and If so, Its practical results will be to put a

Jli ink that the court will simply remand

tie but little doubt as to law, lor the best, and
uiiuoMi uuiversai opinion among tne law
vers of the House is, that the court cannot
legally discharge the man from Imprison

charge the prisoner, that that would be sucl,
a, contempt for the House and malfeasance
in ofuce tnat the House should Impeach the
