there Is nono without its special claims to repre

hare sent delegations, petitions and

Of all the snrmlies and rumors or cabinet ap

that one Is tbe selection or Senator John Sher.

thinking man, not alone because Mr. Sherman Is
a personal and Intimate friend of the incoming
President, nor became be la from Uhlo, poaaeaalog

cauae he la a man ol great financial tact, whor
line of policy haa been Invariable, and la thor

the whole country. Some people assert
that Mr. Morrill should be retained
tecanso of the great satlaiactlon which his Onan

Diunlty. Tbe same parties also Insist that Mr.
Sherman, from bis sixteen yeara' experience In
the Senate, and the bead ol tbe Finance Com

Senate than anywhere else. Cut be this as It
may, the Treasury Is understood to have already
been ottered to Mr, Sherman, and he has signi

The Hit hours of a ici'lon of Congress, espec
ially In tho House of Representatives are hours
of excitement, disorder and confusion, and thero
Is always a great deal of legislation which could
not possibly be got through under more ordinary
circumstances and In cooler moments. It is at
these time that tbodls graceful oba are engrafted
upon the etatuto hooks. Hut for many reatoai
tbe last day of a session Is the most Interesting
to be witnessed In tho hall oftho House. The
floor Is always crowded, because besides the
members, a large number of the members elect
to the succeeding Congress flock to Wash
ington on such an occasion. The bun
of conversation! tho walking to aod fro
the frantic efforts or members to catch the'eyo or
tho Steakfr In order that they mny get In sonio
pet measure which must necessarily fall unless
they can succeed In being recognised: the gath
ering of members In the Immediate vicinity or
tbeSPEAKMi's desk, all tend to create a scenoor
confusion which almost beggars description.
The cle s ng day of the Forty Fourth Congress Is
not an exception to tbo general rule. In fact,
the excitement Is much greater than It has been
In times pait, because legislative business
haa been so lnuclt Interrupted by
the count or the Electoral vote th it
tl ere are an unusual number or bills and reiorts
undisposed of. Anl every man thinks that ho
ought to be entitled to liumodlate recognition as
soon as he yells "Mr. Si-eakui!"
When the House met alio o'clock yesterday
morning there were not more than thirty mem
bers present. As the gavel fell they werogroued
about the SrEA Kin's deak and each man called
luatlly for recognition. TAnnox, (Maaa.), secured
thecye of theSrKAKKR first and got through a
resolution to pay an assistant doorkeeper from
his district In tbe Hsy State.
Sailer, (Ohio), by loud cries made himself
heard and got In a resolution about a
harbor of reruge at Cincinnati, Wilsox,

the man, would not be beaten off, and got a hear
Ing for a private bill. Admiral Wiiittiiorve, of
the Tenneaaee Navy, sccuredpay mr a nival o'li
rcr. Hexdehson (III.), ordinarily a quiet man.
Sailed till he was hoarse, and finally forced the
raaKRR to recognise him to put In a proposition
in relation to some water power at Moifne, HI.
Jotcr (Vt.), got a slice out of the contingent fund
for some friend who bad been serving bis country
In some capacity or other about the House or
And so they were going on getting all man
ner or bills and resolutions through,
until Holmah appeared upon tbe scene. Tne
laces that had been wreathed with smiles of
hope a'Conce took on tbe frown of deipatr, for
there stood the great objector, who would not
hare been himself if he bad not objected on
general principles, whether he understood what
Ls was objecting to or nor.
For Insmnce, at the time Holmaw came In Mr.
Cutter (New Jersey), was trying to get a reso
lution through to print 15,0-0 copies or
tbe last report or the Commission or Edu
cation. Mr, Holm am ; caught the words
15,ooo. That waa enough, lie objected to
the number. "What number would tbe
gentleman indicate?" aaked the Speaker,
I don't know anything about It," replies Hol
maw, "but I would like to have somo ex plana
tlon." Time waa taken to explain, and then the
resolution went through.
Uy this time the number or members had In.
creased, and they were all hustled about the
SrEAEan'a dak holding aloft bills and resolu
tlon a, and yelling at tbeSrEAKRtu It wasaier
feet babel. No one understood what was going
on nntll an order was enforced that the member a
should retire to their seats. Hat they did not
remalntbeie for any length of time. The needle
is not attracted by the pole more surely than
members are attracted towards the srEAKEn'a
desk when tbey want to be recognised, and so
there Is a sort of a mob around It at Intervals.
And so It went on all day long. No one could
tell exactly what bllla were paased. Heports of
committees ol conference and messages from the
Senate, being privileged communications, now
and then Interrupted the contused demands for
recognition. Dut, about every fire or ten minutes,
some one would complain that nothing or what
was going on could be heard. Then the Speaker
would rap lustily with his gavelt Insist upon
the members taking their seats, and
would threaten to hare the lobbies

tlon. This threat would have Its effect for about
thirty seconds, and then tbe bun of conversation
and the disorder would brenk out afresh. At
half past eleven o'clock Mr. Holm am suggested
that the House adjourn until 12, and tbe sugges
tion was accepted.
Defore that, however, Mr. TrcKenhad offered
a resolution, which waa adopted, authorixing the
release of V ells and tbe other members of the
Inlilana Heturnlng Hoard. These gentlemen
might hare been kept in tbe dungeon until to
day at li o'clock, but the habtat corpus Issued by
JuitlceCartter seems to hare scared the Houio.
As sen n as the House waa callc 1 to order again,
at 14 1 'clock, tbo members were so Impatient for
recognition that tbey could scarcely restrain
themselves until iheChaplaln bad o lie red prayer.
Then Mr. HooEEn (Miss.), was recugulied. to
offer a bill to pay what haa como to be Known aa
tho big Choctaw steal. He wanted to saipend
the rales, but Instead of two-thirds he ooulif not
muster even a majority Tor his proposition. .
Mr. HriLMAif taeoaubmltled the flrat con Ter

The only point or d.a rencewasas to the Presl

at aM.OjO as at present, while tbe House wants
to reduce It again to tbe beggarly rum of ao-to,
that la beggarly for such a nation as tbe United
States to lay. The Democrats were given to
understand that tbey risked an extra session ot
Congresslf they Insisted upon tbe reduction, for
the resident, they were told, would certainly
veto the bill.
Hut the most senseless proceedings of the day
were the attempts or Piioctor KsuTTnnd David
Dudley Pielh, acting under tbe Instructions or
the Committee on Powers and Privileges, to
make a record declaring that Samuel J,
Tllden had rerreivcd a majority or the

Shortly beforearecess was taken In tbe after

the drama were a gentleman named Allex O.

named Ulovlii, who, by some means or other
managed to get Into Congress from a Missouri
district, and a fellow named Mack all, a sort ol
hanger-on about certain Committees of the
House, who has made himself generally obnox

of authority. Qlotkr Is chairman ol tbe Com

meaner and more contemptible things than tbe

and the good Lord knows tbat some or them have
done the meanest sort or things. Mack all la his
