There was a large amount of routine busi

and It was placed on the calendar.

The-Honse bill to pay pensions of 9fr per

Mr. SPKCCR made an tffort to set np the
bill forthe inpportof the OoTernmcutot the
District of Columbia, but Mr WmanT ob

would call up tbe bill at every opportunity
until It wis disposed of. There is an absolute
neecislty that this bill, or one akin to It,
should pass at tbe earliest practicable mo

and Interests ot the District of Columbia.
Certainly, lf Senators really understood the

not object to the bill referred to.

Mr. WINDOM, from the Committee on A p.

stenographers, mesecoKtrf, &c. A dkUoguuli

Mr. WINDOM Terr sensibly suggested that

XIOTJSB OF KEntESEHTATIVES
After tbe transaction of some routine busi

of Dphtlntf OTtr the dead issue of tho Florida

speech from Mr. TnoimoK, Indulged In the

sold himself out to the Democrats In his speech
on Tuesday, was busily engaged In sendlaa

could not be called his speech, for all who
know Fcnif ak, know rery well that he had
not brat na enough to write It.
Tbe Zlou-e then went Into Committee of the
Whole on the NatsI Appropriation bill, but
not before Mr. Wood, who Is one of the advo

and when that was refused he tried a delay by
asking for tbercadlag of the bill Inntenio,

that tho Ccnstllatlon of tbe United States forbid
the eonfirrlrg of judicial power anon tho Return

State which attempted to confer soeh powfr was

Hoard had possnsed Judicial powers, Mr. Cab

power and bad failed to act incompliance with
tbe statute under whieh It was created.
He read tbe itatate requiring the duplicate re.
turns to I e made within twenty.fonr hoars, and
said the facts were that sueh returns were not
made within filtecn daj s, and then read from tbo
report of Messrs. Hoar, WnitLiit and Ftk, to
Show how tbls delay eould be taken ad vantage of
to change tbe result and said they were prepared
to show that ten thousand voters had beu dis

read from tho reiort of Messrs Hoab, Wcbkliii

up astonished to find himself elected by the very

Argument ef Mr Trumbnll
Mr.TRUMUULLlald he supposed that they
should now present their evidence. He proposed
to show tbat the Win P, Kellogg who signed tbe
certificate, end the W. P. Kellbgj who received
tbe certificate were the same.
2d. That Wm. P. Kellogg was not legally
elected an elector, and the certificate was untrue
In fact, having received less than a majority of
the votes. This he proposed to prove by the cer
tified copies ef the commission of tbe election
returns to theelerk's office, which are the duett
cates ofthe papers t he It turn log Hoard, had be
fore them and by which It would be seen tbat tbe
Tllden electors had from T,0J0 to s.ojo majority.
They otiered to prove tbat la many In
stances the supervisors of elections omitted
results In tholr consolidated statements of
returns from certain parishes votes for tbe Tlldea
electors to the number of over two thousand.
i raudjrregnlarltv and Illegality on the part of
the Returning Hoard In various forms were
charged by Mr, Trumbull, and tbe proof of tbe
ameoSlered to be produced. Tbe general char
acter of tbe allegations was that there had been
a majority of votes cast for tbe Tlldea electors,
and tbat the Returning Hoard had, la carrying
out a conspiracy to whlea said board Governor
Kellogg and others were parties, to eoant the '
votes Tor Hayes, regardless of the number east,
had so fraudulently and Illegally counted the
Toteslntbe faoeofa Democrat! majority or from
T,roo to 8,000.
They further offer to prove that Oscar Joflrlon,
A. H. Lorlssee and O. H. Urewster pretended
elee.on lntbe pretended electoral college, were
Ineltalble, the two former. State, and tho latter
Federal officers also tbat Morris Marks, and
j. ji. iiaroo, were state omcors, ana auoi mem
prohibited by the laws of Louisiana from holding
two offices In tbe State.
Tbey further offer to prove that a member of
the Returning Hoard o fit red to rcoslre a bribe to
cast tha vole Tor the Tldcn electors.
A question sprang up as to the time to bo allowed
for argument on tbe Interlocutory question as to
the advisability ol tbe evldenbe offered.
Mr.THURMAN thought the case would be
expedited by allowing tbe evidence to go In
subject to objections, Instead of fritting away
their time on tbe advisability of testimony.
He thought It was maklngthls Commliiloa a
Court of Common Pleas, Instead ofthe great trl
bunal It was Intended to be.
Mr. EDMUNDS argued that the effect or tak
Ing testimony provisionally might be that at the
end often days they might find the evidence In
admlssable, and the whole time wasted.
Judge HUADLEY thought they should go on
In a manner similar to the courso pursued in the
Judge MILLER asked If It eould not be so ar
rarged that th case could be argued, so that
when tbe Commission went Into consultation, lf It
was decided not to admit tho evidence, it would
not be necessary to hear further argument.
Mr. EDMUNDS submit' c4 tbe following:
Oritrtd. that the counsel now be heard oa tba
wnoietubjcot as the case now stands, and lor
four hours on each side bo allowed.
Judge MILLER thought tha effect or th
order was to permit tbe wbole ease to beargu!
aalt now stands, leaving the admissibility of
thetestlmony. Ifthatwas admitted, of course
they would baveto 9me back and listen to the
argument on It.
Mr. AUDUTT was oppose to m'xlng up the
ease; If the evidence was eioluded he wanted
tLcm to hear tbe argument on what was left of
Mr. THURMAN agreed with Mr. Abbott,
that tbe case should not be mixed. He, however,
favorsd coslderlng the evidence on both sides as
before tbem, subject to a future decision as to
admissibility and foree.
Judge STllONO offered a substitute, giving
counsel two hours on each aide to argue the ad
missibility of tbe evidence.
Mr. THURMAN moved to Increase tba Urns la
tbe Judge Btroko proposition to tbre hours
Rejeeted by a vote of T to S.
Mr. EDMUNDS' proposition was rejected.

After rceessMr. TRUMBULL prooeedod with
bla argument, saying tbat thoy were brought
face to face with the question whether a Presl
dentoftlie United States Is to be mad through
fraud and vitllany on the part oi onloials whose
duty It was to Issue the certificates. Thoro was
no other Tribunal to which application eould be

Republic be was called upon to argao the ques
tion before the National Tribunal.
It was not before a canvassing hoard touching
tho election of a Justice of tho peace, but th
National Corgress having power to go to tbi
very bottom of everything that he appeared.
There was submitted to this Commission not only
tha question who were the lawful electors but all
matters connected with tbe doublo return. Whon
tbe act was passed there was a tbrlil went
through the country, and there was a feeling
that whatever tbe decision was It would declare
the true voice ofthe people. Should it be said
tbat when tbe law declared tbey should consldor
all questions connected with tbe double return i
that It merely meant they should do a simple
sum In arltbmetlo and add un tbe returns
in one or tio cent oca ten what the
country wanted was a decision as to
who was lawfully eleeteJ, and the country would
not be satisfied with anything else, nor pros
perity bloom attain.
Mr. TRUMlIULL maintained and cited au
thorltles to show that a tribunal having power to
eiamtne Into a subject bad the power to bear
evidence relating thereto, and that testimony
taken by committees of Congress were legitimate
evidence to he considered by tbe Commission.
Hailng this jtowcr the Corn ml rs Ion was bound,

the two haiters which are to draw the necks of
the two culprits. They are of the latest pattern,
and will doubtless, do the useful work satis
faetcrlly. Tbo wretched men bear up pretty
well under the circumstances. It Is evident they
have made up their minds to die game, which is
good news tor the Sheriff, as nothing Is so un
pleasant for a hangman as to have a row with a
calprlien the gallows. A large number of ap-
tlleatlona " have been mad for admission

Tbe history of the murder la as follows: Utfloer
Droek wss on duty at tbe corner of Clinton ave
nue and Murray streets on tbemornlngla ques
tion, when be saw two men acting in the street In
a suspicious manner. When they saw tbe otteor
approaching tbey fled. Thinking that the house
had cither t een robbed or tbat there were burg
lars inside, he entered the house, and
on going up on tbe second floor he en
countered three men la the bath room. It was
abontbalf past five o'clock, andlt was so light
mat he had no difficulty In making out tbe
thieves, even with the closed shutters. He had
his revolver In bis hand, but as he entered tbe
doorway called out to tbe burglars, "Don't shoot
and I won't." Hefore he bad finished the sen
teneo one of the thieves fired, and Hroek re
turned to the spot, but so far as Is known,
without striking either of tbem. The bul.
let fired entered tbe officer's left breast underthe
arm, and penetrated tho region of the heart. Aa
he staggered back the men succeeded In passtig
blm aid In making their ciceie. Hrock was able
to rind his way out of the house, and gave an
alarm, when, becoming weak from 1ms ol blood,
he fell unconscious to tho pavement. He was
immediately removed to St, Darnabas1 Hospital,
where he lingered fur eight days. Shortly betoro
his death the two men, Usohwaldand Kyun, were
brought Into bis presence, and be recognised
Orchwald as the man who shot blm, andalssild,
"Themes Itjan did not fire at me."
