much freedom about them always telling the

a good thing to come in contact with these little
folks, nf course the best place to begin to

Mr. Chairman, If what the gentleman first
charged were ihe case It would be remarkable,
but unfortunately It It not true. If the gentle
man ha 1 examined Ihe very find Item In tul ac.
count he would have seen that General l.aicocit
strikes off an Item of tl.ooo, and yet the gentle
man cam here and t barged that every Item and
every cent had been paid, ttir, 1 say that the
maxim will apply here In discussing a question
of this kind, a(u lm tino.faUum U eMMtbua. If
true as to witnesses, why Is It not true In regard
to discussions hereT
Now, the fact 1 that the account of Ihe board
embraced Items amounting to over ft million and
quarter of dollars I but General Hal-cock re
port that the account amounted to fi,w u
more than the board had reoorted, yet the very
object of the geqtlemaq' rat spWh was, a
well a this attack tou; Is. u show to tg

Let me explain in a word more that when

of the board, h struck out all the Items In regard
to whkdi he and ihe board disagreed to auch an
extent that the board were unwilling to allow
the accounts to be settled, and be allowed others
where work was done and not staled in theac
oonnt,and vet with all the care that waa taken
h found that tbe Government waa indebted

The genticu. w aaya General Bibcock had no

thla point, that under the appropriation which
this CongreM made, the language ot which I hare
read, it waa competent for General Babctxkto
bay to the full amount of the appropriation so
long aa he kept within It terms, crcn though
tbe exact account rendered by th Iioard was

hare gone before thla people orer and over again
opon the rerr question the gentleman has raised
before the House, and every time the people
have Indorsed the Board of Public. Works and
the ir efforts to build np the national capital.
But so long as these charges

as I believe them to be, and are made only by a
few disappointed an I disreputable character
whom the reapectahia neopi of the District who
oppose the lrfanl repudiate a common enemies
to our best Interests, ao long, Mr. Chairman, as
this Is tme 1 ahall defend thla board.
It Is a shame that these creatures should le
permitted to com here to d treat lust appropria
tion, It Is ft shame that they are allowed to dog
the steps of Congressmen and pretest to re
spectability because there are Bome decent men
In the city who do not sustain the bosrd. These
cteatures won! I see tho capital sink liefore they
would permit the board an succeed If they could
Erercnt it; an I yet they nnd audience and they
sve a champion on this floor, ihe gentleman
entries here not to enlogiieth character ot one
of these men and thank him for turning spy and
Informer against the people of the tnntrltt, I
shsll not rail In question the gentleman'a com
panionship. He may select his own associates;
but he cannot convince this country thst an In
fatuated monomaniac, an ntterly unscrupulous
wretch who pannes this but net government
with the malevolence of a hyena, la a at
man to give the gentleman information to
ruble this House. I make no attack on thla man,
bnt I warn the House against the source of the
gentleman'a so-called facta.
nir. it i painful to me that this attack- and this
effort to slide Improvements here come from a
gentleman who Uvea In the greatest city of this
continent, with Its nnblo park and Ita splendid
Improvements, and with It ambition to overtop
the cities of the Old Worl I In ell that makes a
city great. It pains me that such ft gentleman
shoullatanl nut atone In an attack npon the
poarflof Public Works and their effort to build
np your capital.
Iidt this experience Is not new ton. When
gentlemen of the Hnne look about them and see
what we hare accomplished In thla city, let them
remember that ererr step that baa been taken

Kren yestentay, when It was hoped to pass a
resolution nf Instruction to the Committee on
Appropriations asking them to Inquire a to th
duty of theOorernment toward it capital, thla
House was flooded with an anonvmons circular
attacking me personally and the Hoard ef Public
Works, I had a copy handed to me by a gentle
man on the other aide of the House, who aald
that the gentleman from Nework(Mr. Koose
reltj handed It to him, and was circulating It
among Members generally. I hope 1 mar tie mis
taken in that, but I fear that 1 am not. Is this ft
specimen of the gentleman's moral? Is a public
report of t'nl ted States officers to be IHwled oo
of court, and this staff to be taken aa the euik.
of the House? erlly, then
Justice hi neii to brutish beasu.
And men have lost their reason.'
This, Mr. Chairman, la th character of the op.
position which we hare met everywhere. Yes
terday I fonnd here this large paper, holding a
Irrgeyellowolored poster In hi hand, whirh
reminds one ot the poMera that may be aeon at
the cross-roads, surmounted by a horse rampant,
and which was rircnlate 1 here by the gentleman
in order to prejudice this Hoiiap agslnst doing
anactof almplejuftice, thatof directing an in
quiry through a proper committee a to whether
this Government ought to do anytalng toward
buldilng nn the capital.
1 he gentleman rrles "Tammanr nnmSer two,"

thank thee, Jew, for teaching me that word."
Let It be Tammany number two. It never will
send a delegate whj will come here and torn ami
rend It without cause. 1 beitero there H no sub
stantial averment mala by the gentleman that
has not been tally answered. 1 cannot antici
pate what th gentleman will print in the Itatance
of his speech, and I reserve the right to answer
