Ben. BtrrLEit has introduced a bill
in congress of the nature of a Ucclara

and it is probable she and Butler are
working in concert, and arc to share
the honor if sucessful, which ia im
probable, the bill having been referred
to the judiciary committee, which is
known to bo opposed to it.
Mrs. Livermore aya it is a pity
that Horace Greeley was not on hand

greater pity that Mrs. Livermore
wasn't on hand herself, for if she had
been we wouldn't Vave her now."
Such remarkR as these arc & little se-

they arc a satisfaction to that lady

Now, ns 1 understand, this inquiry was
first presented by tho Sonator from Illi
nois (Mr. Trumbull), nnd urged by him
in nn olaborato nnd nblo speech, which has
already awakened chocs throughout tho
country. I miss his name from the coin
inittco. In tho debate on till subject that
oenntor was sustained oy the Senator trom
Missouri (.Mr. Schurz.) I miss his name.
Thcro were other Senator., I think, who
spoko on that side, certainly there woro
others who voted for that side. 1 miss all
their names, and I think tho countrv will

not whether any of the members of that

none. 3Iy friend before me says none.
Neither the chairman of that committee
(Patterson), who had gained much ex
perience in ferreting out abuses, nor ono
of his associates llnd n place on this com
mittee. Whv, sir, to mo it is simply in
explicable. 1 nm at a loss to understand
how my friend from Ithodo Islntul (Mr.
Anthony), in whom I bcllovo reigns a
spirit of Jutice, can bring forward a prop
osition for si'ch n committee. Hut I lmvo
no desiro to go into any opposition, I am
only one. 1 simply make this statement
that it may bo of record, nnd that hereafter
should this committco fall in its inquiries,
tbo country may know that tho Senato was
at least warned with regard to its charac
ter. 1 desiro it to be understood that 1
havo not ono word, excrpt of kindness, for
ti'o much respected senators who aro

Irlond from Itnodo Island (Anthony) to

Mr. Anthony. I beliovc thnt the
appointment of this commiUco is strictly
parliamentary. 'I no commiuco was votcu
for unanimously. Tho Sonator from Illi
nois (Mr. Trumbull) moved n joint com
mittee, and had that committoo been
ogrcod upon ho would hnvo been entitled
to tho chairmanship of it, hut tho resolu
tion under which this committoo is ap
pointed was moved by mo, and if the com
mittee wcro to bo appointed by tho chair
I would probably liavo to ask to bo ex
cused as chairman. I don't know what
my friend from Massachusetts (Mr Sum
ner) moans, when ho speaks of Senators
horn who nro opposed to this inquiry. I
don't know of i single Senator who is op
posed to tlio most searching and thorough

catlc Senator from Delawarn (Hayard)

question is whether, having rosolvod to

shall bo committed to n

aro earnestly in favor of tho Investigation,
or to men who aro opposed to it. To say
that thoso who favor investigation ought
to bo upon tho committco implies no im
put'itiou on the motives of thoso who would
bo excluded from it. Thcro is a difleronco
in opinion In tho Sennto ns to the existence
of frauds nnd tho necessity for an investi
gation. .Mr. Conkling. What difference ?
Mr. Thiirmaii. Tho Senator from
Nevada said tho other day that thoro was
no necessity for an investigation at nl, j
that this administration and its ofllcials
woro so puro there was nothing to Investi
gate Mr. Krolingliiiyisen asked Mr Thur
man whether "tho parliamentary rulo was
not that tho senators who voted for the

Mr. Tliuriuaii. You cannot ovado tho
rulo by taking six or seven gentlemen
that voted for tho resolution. Thcro is n

but thn sonator fiom Illinois (Trumbull)

Mr. Buckingham. Tho Senator from
Illinois (Trumbull) distinctly deol!nod :
not nubile! v. but nrlvatolv. to bo either
chairman of tho committoo or on tho committco.
Mr. Trumbull. Tho only conversation
ovor had upon tho subject, according to
my rcconociion, was with tho sonnlor
from Connecticut after tho sonato voted
down tho proposition to raise tho commit
tco and rorur to it tho subject specified,
and proposed simply to raise a committco
and give it no powers except such as thn
senato should afterwards confer upon it.
I did say to tin sonator that I could not
consent to sorvo upon a committco ralsol
in that way.
Mr Thurmaii resumod : Another par
liamentary usngo, ho said, had been viol-
ntod in tills caso. It was usual to pormit
the minority to scloct their own roprnsout
ntivos upon a committoe, but this commit
tee had been cooked up in a republican
caucus, and tho namoof the domncrnt that
was to bo allowed on tho committco was
selected without consulting tho minority j
and further, it was romarkablo that tho'ro
was only cno dmncrnt to bo put on tho
committee which was to outer Into nn In
vcsti'jatlpn as broad as tho Union. Dem
ocratic sonators woro satisfied with tho
selection of him, but thoir complaint was
that tho majority had undertaken to select
lor mom nu, mm also that oun momlior
could not fairly represent tho democratic
party on tho committco.

by tho facts of the caso.
Mr. Frolinghuytcn argued tnat tho com
milteo, as proposed, wus in nccordanco
with tho requirements of parliamentary
law. Ho believed that Mr. Trumbull s
proposition was contrary to tho constitu
tion. Mr. Sumner said thosonator from Con
nccticut (Uucklnghnm), beforo taking tho
place of chairman, soothed his parliament
ary conscicnco by ascertaining that tlio
senator from Illinois (Trumbull), would
not accept tho place; but his consuinnm
did not require him to ascertain whothor
Schurz, or Patterson, or any otliorsenator
who had been prosing tbis inquiry would
tnko tho place
Mr. Patterson protested that lie would
not lmvo ncceptcd tho chairmanship of tho
committed as ho had had enough of that
kind of work. Ho was perfectly satisfied
with tho organization of tho committee,
nnd ho was confident that if thoy had suf
ficient powers giventhem they could not,
being honest men, como to any diHurcnt
conclu-ion from that arrived at by tho old
committoo on retrenchment. Thcro wns
uo doubt of thn cxistenco of theso nbusc,
but they wero tho result, not of this or
thut administration, but of tho war and Its
attendant circumstance, and thoy would
hnvoinvaribly nppenred tindcrnny administration.
Mr. Scott moved to add Mr. Cnsserlv
(democrat) to tho committco. Carried.
3lr. Logan said it was almost Imposslblo
to ajt an independent part in tho senato.
ow theso tnrcoorionr men, perhaps five,
who undertake to manago tho party, call a
caucus on any man who is disposed
to bo independent, and threaten to read
him out. For ono ho would net up to his
convictions, nnd run tho risk of bolng read
out. I do not boliovc, said Mr. Logan, thnt
tho president of tho United States fiiars

As to tho organization of this commit
tee, it is peculiar. V hon tho senato dlvi
