,'X'lii .Mutter Keliirrwl t ( 'onjji'i'H
by tlio Hi'i'i'i'tury of Win.
Spirial to the St. Lonla RopublliHn.)
Wasiiinoton, May 14,--The secretary of
war to-day referred the petition of ('apt.
Eads to congress w ith a report of the same
from the commission of engineers to w hom
it had been referred. The following tire
the salient points in the rejxirt of the com
mission. Referring to Ends' petition they say:
We by no means depreciate the extent or
value of the works as they exist, but we
cannot concur with the petitioner's state
ment to the effect that we have already com
pleted at least 0 per cent, of this entire
wolrk. We m memlxTs of the commission
ot'H7(t and as ourselves constituting the
commission of 1S77 have expressed our opin
ion that the work is being constructed ac
cording to the spirit of the act. We be
lieve moreover that the work is so far ad
vanced and success so far pronounced that
it is for the interest of the government anil
country not only to have the construction
carried on, but pushed with the utmost pos
sible vigor to such a xiint at least as shall
insure their security and the utmost efficien
cy of action in the" increasing capacity of
t le channel.
Referring to the channel proposed by the
United States commission of 174. they say:
Petitioner is quite right in saying that
the oommission "f engineers authorized by
Congress in ls74, and which reported in
favor of applyin;; the jetty system to the
South pass, proposed to jeoure u channel
thirty feet in depth, and the permanent
maintenance of onlv twenty-rive feet, with
out any specified width. That board aimed
at simply maintaining, under all contin
gencies, a navigable dep'h of unspecified
width at mean low water of 25 feet. We
find that depth ptcseribed for bis desired
fifth payment to be nUiiit equal to what
the Isiard of ls74 aimed at permanently
maintaining. It must be lxime in mind
that at the mouths of the Mississippi nearly
all the depth on the bar can be realized in
actual draft will include probably 85 per
nt. of the sea-going vessels of the world.
We find that under the desired modifica
tion to get the fifth payment, the contrac
tor must have secured a navigation capacity
probably equal to that contemplated for
permanent maintainance by the laiard of
174, while he will at this stage of pro
gress be entitled to but f 1,000.004 of the
$5,250,000 of his ultimate total.' As the
law now stands he would be entitled to
$2,250,000 including the sum of $250,000
for keeping an open twenty-four foot chan
nel for twelve consecutive months. We are
of the opinion, as before stated, that the
width ot the channel promised by the peti
tioner may de considered as fairly meeting
tne wants or commerce, law tne wiiiths pro
posed by the lawns it now stands are
obviously desirable, and the question wheth
er the large concessions asked for in those
widths should la? granted and compensa
tion tor depths between twenty-tour and
twenty-eight feet increased at the expense
of a deeper is one on which we can hardly
be considered proper exponents.
THE SW ItKTAItY OK WAH.
In transmitting the rejMirt the secretary
of the war says:
It will 1m- seen that while the ltoard are
of op!-iion that the width of channel pro
posed by the" petitioncs may Ik; considered
as fairly meeting the present wants of com
merce, they regard the question whether
the concessions asked for should be grant
ed as peculiarly a question for congress to
decide. The views expressed by Gens,
Barnard and Wright are concurred in by
CA1T. K A IIS CLAIMS.
Mr. Eads says in his petition :
The provisions of the law were intended
to afford a reasonable reimbursement of our
outlays, and as fast as work pro
gressed after certain specified depths of
channel should be secured by permanent
works. It was impossible, however, to tell
with any degree of accuracy how much of
the whole work would have to be executed
before we could be entitled to first pay
ments under the law, and while the total
cost of improvement will not exceed the
original estimates the projiortion of the en
tire outlay necessarily expended to secure
the present depths has greatly exceeded our
expectations. E.cricnce has shown and
custom has sanctioned the wisdom of the
government paying out a percentage of the
contract price for work as it progressed, by
which those wjio undertake it may avoid
excessive rates of interest which can result
in no benefit to the government. If we
were compensated for ninety percent of the
work done we would receive $285,500 more
than has been paid us. Wu do not ask for
any such liberality, but reter to
this fact to show the hardships
which we are tailoring under by
the terms of the law ami the absolute, secu
rity with which the government can grant
the relief we are compelled to ask. We
have, by the terms of law, until SeptemU'r
!l, 1370, to secure twenty-four feet, and to
Septenilicril, 1HH0, to secure a twenty-six
feet channel. The interests of the public
will of course be promoted by the attain
meiitof these depths at an earlier day. I'uder
the present terms of payment it will be im
possible for us to expend Uhiii the work
the large additional sums still necessary to
secure the maximum channel at the earliest
possible pciiod, for the reason that the in
debtedness already incurred will absorb so
much ol the next payments as to leave for
it a tot illy inadequate provision. We un
dertook the construction and inainteiiamc
of these works for $IIM2.1I0 less than tie
ollieial estimate of the commission upon
whose report the act was framed. We also
assumed the whole risk of their failure to
produce tint desired channel, notwithstand
ing confident and reiterated predictions
made by official and other experts that thev
would h' unsuccessful. We likewise took
all the risks of their destruction by storms
ami treacherous foundations, dang "r which
were believed byiiianyto be insurmountable.
Besides all this, we are not permitted to im
prove the pass of our choice with its nor
mal depth of 15 feet, but wire given one
only a quarterns large with a depth of but
eight feet. In spite of national di lcultics
which were to be surmounted during a per
iod of unusual financial prostration we have
carried this enterprise to a s)int where in
complete success is acknowledged even by
its opponents. We have changed the little
pass into a grand channel of commerce
through which the largest shipping that
visits the jMirt of New Orleans floats in
safety, while every predition of failure, of
reformation of the bar in advance of the
jetties, is shown by official surveys to have
been without foundation. We ask simply
that a reasonable portion of the money act
ually expended may he repaid to relieve em
barrassments resulting from provisions in
the law unusually severe and oppressive,
and which cannot now be retained w ithout
injuriously re-acting uion the commercial
ami industrial interests of the country.
And with this record we ask no pay
ment on the work that w ill not leave in
the hands of the government an ample
amount of our compensation to secure the
entire completion of the jetties.
The Musical Festival a Complete Success.
THE MAGNIFICENT HALL APPRO
Special to the St. LnuN Juarual.
Cincinnati, May 14. The city is full of
trangers from all parts of the country, and
the attendance at the musical festival to
night far exceeds anything that was antici
pated. The hotels are nearly all full, and
hundreds are boarding on the steumboa's
on which they came.
On account ot the long programme, w hich
included the ceremonies of dedicating the
hall, 7 o'clock w as announced as the hour for
commencing, and while it was yet broad
oayiigiit the immense throng began to wend
its way out Elm street and to fill up the
new and beautiful structure, which is to
stand as a monument to the liberality of one
of Cincinnati's wealthiest citizens, as an cvi-
lence ot the high appreciation in wliichniu-
sic and art are held by hi r people. The ex
terior ot the building is pictur
esque ami imposing, and the in
side is an einliodiinent of. convenience,
comfort and beauty. It contains a large
hall, small hall, and a number ot side
rooms. The main hall is completely sur
rounded by corridors twenty feet wide,
with numerous doors opening into the hall.
In front is a vestibule 112 feet long by 4'1
feet wide, communicating with the main
hall by several doors. Alsive the vestibule
is the hall, 40 by 1 12 feet. The grand hall
is the handsomest auditorium in the coun
try, if not in the world. It is 1!)2 feet long
by 111 feet wide. The stage is 112 feet
wide by 4(1 feet deep. There is no thea
tre or concert room in America ot
equal size, and but two in the world
Tile interior presents a novel as well as
beautiful appiH-arance, being entirely lined
with tulip wood, instead of plastering.
The wood is oiled, and is of a light golden
color. This gives it a o ic properties f
the very best, there being nothing of that
dcadnes.s caused by plastering or brick
walls. The idea was suggested by the
Mormon temple in I' tali, which is so lined.
The hall seats 44,000 persons, and there is
standing room for a couple of thousand
more. By 5 o'clock this afternoon every
seat for to-night's concert was sold, and in
another hour even standing rixau tickets
The city is gaily decked with flags and
evergreens and the portraits of Reuben
Springer, with those of the famous musi
cians, are displayed from every house.
An elegant portrait of Springer was this
morning present 1 to fiat gentleman at his
residence by Mayor Moore and a number of
prominent citizens. The streets are throng
ed with visitors who continue to pour in by
every train, and the hotels' are full to over
flowing. A THANont. nkkvois s vst em can never
be possessed by those whose digestion and
assimilative organs are in a state of chronic
disorder. Weak stomachs make weak
nerves. To restore vigor and quietude to
the latter, the first must be invigorated and
regulated. The ordinary sedatives may
tranqiiilize the nerves for a while, but they
can never, like llostetter's Stomach Bitters,
remove the causes of nervous debility. That
superb invigorant and corrective of dis
ordered conditions of the alimentary organs
has also the effect of imparting tone to the
nerves. The delicate tissues of which they
are constituted, when weakened in conse
quence of impoverishment of the blood, re
sulting from imperfect digestion and as
similation, draw strength from the fund of
vitality developed in the system by the bit
ters, which imparts the required impetus to
the nutritive functions of the stomach, en
riches the circulation, and give tone and
regularity to 'the secretive and evacuative

THE DEAD-LOCK IX THE HOUSE OF
What IInyi Think of Uui lrw
! I IllVCHtlK'ltloil.
Wasiiinoton, May 14. The Democrats,
after a short siege of filibustering by the
Republicans, to-day ad ottrned ami held a
caucus, where there was, after some talk,
a general determination to right the. matter
to the end. It was suggested in the caucus
that it would be better to add an amend
ment to the resolution that under no cir
cumstances did it mean a change in the ex
ecutive, but was voted dow n on the grimml
that this w as given out plain enough by
Mr. Potter yesterday. It was further de
cided to have all absentees sent for and con
tinue the contest against the filibustering
tactics of the Republicans. The latter are
equally determined to fight it out (in their
plan. Each party hopes to gain jHilitical
capital by their respective programmes. It
w ill end in a compromise or a question of
physical endurance. ,
WHY HIIK1IMAN IS INTEUESTKJ).
The particular evidence on which John
Sherman is indicted in the resolution is ir
photographic copy of his letter to Welter
and Anderson, the supervising inspectors of
East and West Feliciana, Louisiana. This
letter authorized them to make out the pro
test against the results in those parishes, on
which the returning Itoard threw out the
Democratic votes. Those men at first hesi
tated, and it will lie remcmltercil the delay
caused an open ami flagrant violation of
the law on the part of the returning Ismrd
in receiving the protests. Mrs. Jencks, a
friend of Mrs. Weber, was here in January
with this letter to make terms with Secre
tary Sherman. She disposed of the original
to Iiim. but first had it photographed, and
this copy is the one that has fallen into th"
now HAVES FEEL.
Intimate friends of the president says he
shows no disquiet whatever in view copend
ing pnx'eedings in the house concerning'
alleged election frauds, but exhibits tin
same apparent equanimity of temper that
has marked his conduct ever since his inau
guration. He had not in the past tin
slightest knowledge of frauds by political
managers in Florida and Louisiana, other
than published accusations on the Demo
cratic side during the canvass andjinvestiga
tion in these states. He w as entirely reserv
ed and took no part whatever concerning
them, leaving the resonsibility to those
who performed such business. President
Grant, w hile the excitement existed, sug
gested that gentleman whose characters
were well known to the country should go
th -re mand examine into all t le f icts, so
their reports or cc nclusions should
inspire respect. President Hayes tisik no
part in the suggestion of his immediate pre
decessor ami did not interfere in any way
whatever. All th.' time the returning
Isiards were at work, up to the latest hour
when the contest was closed, he regarded
the general result uncertain as to either
frnily iu tlio contest. He recuivotl noeom
munications from any of the Republican
visitors to those or any of the states, nor
was he in the remotest degree complicated
by the proceedings of his friends in the
matters stated. In fact his intimate friends
say that during the period of the uncertain
ty of his election he manifested no anxiety
to occupy the presidential chair, leav
ing the determination of the ques
tion to others. The president said
this morning that there was nothing new in
the proMMcd investigation, but while frauds,
if any were committed, should bo exposed,
such exposure would not invalidate his
title to the presidential chair, as this had
been sett lei 1 and declared by a commission
constituted under solemn act of Congress.
Vice-President Wheeler having returned
from New York, this morning, called upon
the president, and having suliseqirently
been watching proceedings in the House,,
replied: "The president did not even al
lude to the subject. My visit was on other
and entirely different business."
