THK PENDING (JVKSTION.
Washington, December 8. Senator
Blaino will call up bis investigating resolu
tion to-morrow, and deliver a speech upon
the subject. Senator Thurman will speak
upon the subject also, but it is understood
that Senator Eaton will deliver a straight
out opposing speech. Mr. Blaine has in
timated bis willingness to accept any
amendment to his resolution that docs not
tend to defeat the original object.
A prominent member of tho Potter com
mittee to-night said that it was extremely
uncertain whether or not tho committee
would continue its investigation. Some ol
the members of the committee wcro in favor
of going on, but others thought to let the
whole thing go as it was.
The cipher dispatches now in tho posses
sion of the committee have never been over
hauled, nnd their purport, of course, is un
known, consequently both sides aro afraid
of them, It is probable that the committee:
will hold meetings, at different Intervals
from now until tho 4th of March, but with
out transacting any business.
-' WASHINGTON LETTER.
Washinoton, December fl, 1878.
Yesterday in the senate Mr. Edmunds
gave notice that on liuxt Monday hu would
ask the senato to consider a bill in relation
to thu manner of counting for president, ami
mutters connected therewith. Th special
committee by which the report in made,
which he asks to have discussed, is an ex
ceptionally ablo ono. It is doubtful if final
action will be taken on the subject at this
session. Senator Stanley Matthews on
Tuesday made an excellent speech in favor
of the bill in aid of tho Texas Paeitlc Rail
road, and on yesterday, thinking, no doubt,
that the speech had settled the question,
moved to take up the bill for final action.
Tho senate refused to do this, because many
other senators desired to ha heard as'to the
merits of the bill, It seems certain that
some bill recognizing this road will pass by
a large majority, benator Ulaines resolu
tion instructing tho Judiciary committee of
the senate to inquire whether tho rights of
voters in the south hud been attacked, does
not, upon further reflection, 'jvc that states
man, or other radical gentlemen, unalloyed
satisfaction. It is parti.an, and so palpably
so, that everybody knows it. Amendments
will be offered by DeinixiratieAenutois, und
Mr. Thurmun will, if the Rjiublicans In
vite discussion, speak ij.t length.
On Tuesday the house pussed two of the
Appropriation bills the Fortification bill
and the West 'Point bill. 'These the senate
referred ui yesterday to the proper commit
tees, and they wMl no doubt be" finally dis
posed of at an unprccedentedly early day
Other appropriation bills are ready for the
house, amljwill receive attention at once
The' consideration of these will make up
tho real business of tho session, and ull of
them M ill be acted upon early. With one,
houe'e in control of each party, it docs not
seam good policy to waste time on purely
political matters, and the disposition seems
general in both parties to do nothing of the
kind. Many members, to be sure, have in
troduced bills on the tinauees, and a few
political moves have been made, but they
do not have the countenance of senators or
representatives in largo numbers,
Tho iirmy, through Generals Shennnn
and Meigs, has spoken in favor of the In
! dim lltireitus trunsfer to the War Depart
ment. Doubtless General Sherman is con
siderably influenced in the. matter by a fear
that, unless some employment is found for
a large and increasing number of.superfiu
ous army officers, there will bo danger of
congressional action reducing the force.
Speaker Randall, who is in the best of
spirits since his arrival here, has no doubt
of Democratic success in 1880. His oppor
tunities . of acquiring information in his
present place ore exceptional, and his opin
ion is therefore worthy ot attention. The
fact that Mr, Randall is believed by many
to be looking for a nomination for the
prsidency cannot be held to make his
present faith in Democratic success less
worthy of respect, for hu is young and can
wait until 1884.
Face to Face with Disease, How
often it happens that although we have wit
nessed tho ravages of disease in tho case of
others, wo disregard his warning signals in
our own. It is only when wo tlnd him face
to face with us that wo really perceive how
grim ho is. Then, perchance, when it is too
late, medicinal aid is sought. His avunt
courier, his fore-runner, is physical weak
ness. Fortify tho system, and you are
armed against him. The finest tonic for
this purpose is llostetter's Stomach Bitters,
which renders digestion easy and complete,
nourishes the system, improves tho appetite,
gives strength, yielding sleep, counteracts
biliousness, und keeps the bowels in first
rate order. Leanness, and unnatural wan
n"ss and sallowness of the face, are obvi
ated by it, and so genial and beneficent aro
its effects, that not only is tho body invig
orated and regulated by its use, but des
pondency banished from tho mind.
Southern Pitcille Itailroiul.
(From tho Memphis Appeal.)
At the next session of congress the friends
of this great enterprise will make the last
great effort to secure an appropriation.
What the south asks is simply justice.
Millions wero appropriated for the Union
Pacific mad, and tho south, taxed for the
benefit of this road, insists that she be treat
ed with respect und justice. If tho friends
of this great enterprise will unite, wo be
lieve they will succeed. As a rule wo aro
opposed to subsidies, but a grand enter

many attend. Like other organizations of
its kind in Cairo, it is compelled to "run
itself,'' and that thing can't bo done very
successfully without the encouragement of
the people. The committee of manager
will, therefore, wait upon our citizens with
tickets, and as the price is only one dollar
each, they think they oujjht to sell at least
400 or .KM). The ball will bo a grand af

A TRAMP AND SHOOTS HIM.
A very startling tragedy occurredFriday
night, at Hillside station on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad, 50 miles from Pittsburg.
Twixhiugliti rof Richard Holhan were aloro
in the house. They have been much
afraid of tramps. About U o'clook a man,
whom they stiposed to be a tramp, was
Been approaching the house. Tho elder of
the girls, 18 years of age seized a gun and
lired, when the 111:111 fell dead. A few mo
ments later the horrible discovery was
made that the supposed tramp was Joseph
llothan, a brother of the frill, who was
coining home from a spelling school, and
