two races may be provided. States
mu-t expend during t he (lrst live years at
lea,-t one-third as much from their own
funds as they receive from the Govern
ment, and during the next live years
they must expend of their own funds an
amount equal to that received from the
U'oiierul Government. Not exceeding
one-tenth of the Government bounty may
he spent for Normal Schools, and none ol
the Government's money is to be spent
for Iniildintjs. If in any Mate the Illiter
ate population over ten years old does
not exceed live per cent, of the total popu

any way it pleases, provided it spends
it for the benefit of the Common Schools,

from the Federal Government than it ex

the previous year. To be entitled to any
of this money a State niu-t provide free
Common School education for three
months at least in each year to all of its
children, irrespective of color, though the

O'l ll Kit UII.I.9. .
More than a dozen other hills of this
kind have been introduced at this ses
sion. Senator Logan's provides for the
annual appropriation of s.Ih.iiiiii.ouii, to
be d rived from the internal revemu1
(thin is a slight change from the original
plan), to be divided among the States ac
cording to their total population; but in
order to get any of the money a State
must make attendance on school fur at
least six mouths in each year obligatory
on all children between the ages of seven
and twelve years.
The late 'Mr. Mackey, of South Caro
lina, introduced a bill inappropriate 810,.
Ooii.noo a year for live years for school
purpose, the money to be' divided accord
ing to Illiteracy. Mr. l'erkins, of Kaia-i,
Introduced a bill almost exactly like Sen
tor Logan's, except that the amount
he names is S.'50.00o,oij0. Mr. York,
of North Carolina, proposes to
divide all the surplus money now in the
Treasury, and all revenue from spirits and
tobacco, among the States, according to
illiteracy, ine pian proposed by John 1).
White, of Kentucky, was to appropriate
S-'.i.Oin,000 a year for live years and to
divide it according to illiteracy, no State
to receive more than it spent of its own
funds the previous year. Mr. Evans, of
Pennsylvania, introduced a bill to divide
all the surplus revenues in excess of 150,
000,000 into two portions, one part to be
divided according to illiteracy among the
States in aid of Common Schools.aud the
other half to be divided according to
total population for the purpose of pay
lug off local debts or diminishing local
taxes. Mr. Oates, of Alabama," intro
duced a bill devoting to Common Schools
the net proceeds from the sales of public
lands, and to make the division according
to Illiteracy. Mr. Hewitt, of Alabama,
preferred a plan to divide, $10,000,000 a
year for teu years among the States ac
cording to illiteracy.
The plan proposed in a bill by Mr.
Ilyan, of Kansas, was more complicated.
That hill proposed to set apart as an edu
cational fund the net proceeds from pat
ents, and all repayments of principle and
interest from TacUlc Hailroad Compa
nies, and live per cent, of the net internal
revenue collections and the whole Income
from the permanent educational fund, to
lie divided among the States according to
the population, between the ages of four
and twenty-one, upon various conditions
not materially different from tlmse in
bills already mentioned. Mr, H.van's bill
does not make it at all clear what is to
be done with half the net proceeds from
patents nml half the repayments of l'aci
llc Kail road Companies.
MOItlUI.L'S sen I'.MK,
Senator Morrill's hill provides for the
creation of a permanent educational fund
out of the net proceeds of the sales of
public lands, plus one-half of all pay
ments of principal or Interest made by
raeille lhiilroads. This fund Is to be in
vested in four per cent, government
bonds, and the interest is to be paid to
the States for the first ten years in tho
ratio of illiteracy, and thereafter in tint
ratio of population, between the nges ol
flvo and twenty. One-third of the lncomo
to bo used in increasing the endow

may be devoted to Industrial Schools for

Committee on Expenditures.
Washington, n. c, M arch 11. Wm.
A.Cook, of this city, a special attorney
for the Government during the early his
tory of the Star-ronte prosecutions; was
examined by Springer's Committee to
day. He had a letter from Attorney-Gen-end
Ilrewster, advising Liiu of his ap
pointment as special attorney, and stat
ing that his salary would be fixed subse
quently. "My selection as attorney for
the prosecution was considered by my
friends as a wise oik;, ami I was compli
mented as being at the head of the bar
and a good Itepublican." He called pou
the President In June, 18sl, soon after
his appointment. The President informed
him 1 would bo primarily under the di
rection of the Attorney-General,' yet lie,
the President, would be glad to receive
the witness at any time to hear from him
In regard to the Investigation. Soon as
witness was appointed attorney he went
into open court and made the announce
ment, and had his appointment spread
upon the record. He proceeded with
Gibson to work, in the l'ost-ottloe Depart
ment in the preparation of the cases.
The assassination of the President
caused a temporary suspension of the
work, but shortly prior to the shooting
of the President the latter communicated
with witness about leaving the city, and
said he would like to see the reports pre
pared soon. The shooting occurred be
iore the matter was laid before tho Presi
dent. Itcfcrring to the testlmonz of ex-
l'ostuiaster-Gencral James, In reference
to his warning to the President at the
time the witness called at the White
House with .I itii-s, he stated that he did
make a warning rciinrk to the President,
but did not use the langiiatjij which the
ex-l'o-tmaster-General put upon his lips,
lie stated t i the President thatseonsidcr
ing the bitterness of the Star-roxt men
and Half-breeds, they might resort t vio
lence and that the 'president should" be
careful. Witness had an impression
which caused him to give the warning.
The Pre.-ident appeared Impressed with
the warning momentarily, but remarked
that he apprehended no" danger. "Con
sidering ths Star-route and Half-breed
bitterness, 1 feared there might be a resort
to desperation," said Cook.'. Witness
had an impression at the time of the
shooting that Guiteau wasn't alone in
the crime that it was not the individ
ual act of Guiteau, The wituess had
never yet been disabused of the lm-pre-sion.
After the shooting the witness
tendered his services to the Government
in the prosecution of Guiteau. He de
sired there should boa full investigation
of the causes leading to the shooting,
and that the assassin should be vigor
ously prosecuted. He was willing to aid
without compensation. Ho felt sure the
assassin had accomplice. -Witness
couldn't believe -le woflTd commit the
act so boldly, yet so cowardly, with
out associates. It was in harmony with
his previous warning to the President.
The witness remarked that he was in
sympathy with the Stalwarts, and
that when Guiteau tried to pur
chase a pistol of a second
hand dealer on Ninth street before
the shooting he was accompanied by two
or three men, which was proof that he
had companions at least. Has never in
ferred from the Star-routers themselves
that Guiteau was not alone in the crime.
Never got a hint from the Star-routers
that they knew anything about Guiteau's

Chatc2llor's Snub by the House.
Wsiiini;tox, D. C, March 11. The
following preamble and resolutions were
presented to the House by Mr. lliscock,
Monday, on return of the Lasker resolution-:
Wiii:i;i: v-i, It has come to the knowl
edge of the House that a communication
from it to the Parliament of the German
Empire, entirely friendly in lti intent,
respectful In Its character, and sent
through the regular channels of interna
tional communication, has been arbi
trarily intercepted by a person now hold
ing the position of Chancellor of the Ger
man Empire, therefore be It
I!, il irl, That this House cannot but
express surprise and regret that It should
be, even temporarily, withlu the power
of a single too powerful subject to inter
fere with such a single, natural and spon
taneous expression of kindly feeling be
tween two great nations, and thus to de
tract from the position and prestige of
the crown on one hand and from the rights
of the people on tho other.
Jtrsalrrd, That this House does hereby
reiterate the expression of sincere regret
at the death of Edward Lasker and its
sympathy with the Parliament of the
German Empire, of which for many years
he was a distinguished member.
It was referred to tho Committee ou

Dowllng Mulcahey, the Irish agitator,
pitched Into O'Donovan Uusssi at a
lively rate when Interviewed by a St Louis,
J'ust-Uisjxitrh correspondent to-day, and
made some Interesting statements.
; "How about tho claim that the ex
plosions in England are brought about
under O'Donovan Kossa's directions?"
"It Is not true," was the reply. "Ho Is
in no way connected with It, but wishes
the people, and especially the contribu
tors, to think he is. I know where the
dynamite conies from and how it reaches
England. I am conversant with the move
ment, and know that Kossa Is less in
formed on that question than I am. You
may say that I get my information Indi
rectly, but If it were necessary for mo to
prove my assertions I could do so.
There is great insincerity in the whole
revolutionary movement," continued Mul
"About the actions of Davitt?"
"Davitt says that ho will not go Into
Parliament because he w ill not take the
oath of allegiance to the Queen, and yet
he favors making Ireland a separate
State under the same government, wheu
he would willingly go into the Legislature,
lie would bave to swear allegiance to the
Queen just the same then as now. The
Irish people are satistled with the move
ments of the National League, however,
and I do not think any other course
should be forced upon them than what
they themselves want, llossa says -I am
no patriot; that I should never have made
claim for what he agreed to pay for ser
vices rendered, and that I am not an
Irishman at heart. Let me show you
something that perhaps you never have
seen," and going to a safe, he took from
it a box containing a large parchment, to
whleh was attached an immense seal.
"That is my pardon from jail after serving
six of a ten years' sentence of penal ser
vitude. It is rather what is known as a
letter patent and not an absolute par
don." The pardon or letter stipulated that
Dennis Douling Mulcahey should leave
ureat IJrltaln Immediately upon being re
leased, and should stay away six years.
It also showed that he had been convicted
of conspiracy against the Government.
"This is Irish," said he, "and I prize it
very highly, for it is proof of patriotism
to Ireland. I served iu nineof the prisons
in Englaud and Ireland, and no one
knows better than llossa what that means.

Chicago, Iu.., March 11. "What are
you going to do about it?" was the ques
tion asked of Collector Jesse Spalding
yesterday, when a circular from the Sec
retary of tlie Treasury was handed to him.
The circular set forth the fact that the ap
propriation for fuel, light and water for
public buildings would be exhausted
March 15, and calling the attention of the
custodians of such buildings to the sec
tion of the United States statutes which
provides that the Government shall not be
involved in any contract for the payment
of money iu excess of an appropriation,
and custodians are also ordered to call
the attention of all persons furnishing fuel, I
light or water to the deficiency.
"Well, I don't exactly know," answer
ed '.Tnele" Jesse, stroking his face with
one hand and closely studying the circu
lar which he slid" held "in the other.
"Fuell" Well, it's getting warm weather
now, and perhaps we can get along with
out any after March 15. Light! hum!
Well, th .'re is considerable gas among
I'ost-ollieo politicians down stairs, but 1
am afraid it could never bo utilized for
Illuminating purposes. I guets we'll
have to get the gas company to trust us
for a while, until the next appropriations
are made. Perhaps we can get water the
same way "
"A Democratic city government might
demand cash down."
"Well, then we'll try to get along with
