Dr. Collins Cross-Examined, Gives
More Testimony Against the
Newcomb Naturalist of the Expedition Tes

WASniKGTON, D. C, April 9.—The cross
examined of Dr. Collins, was resumed to-day
before the Jeannette committee. The wit
ness declined to express any opinion on
questions relative to mismanagement on the
part of Delong. He declared, that the
published statements, thai he had great
animosity towards the officers of the Jean
nette, and had spent §3,000 in procuring
testimony were untrue.
During the redirect examination of Dr. Col
lins, the room was cleared of ladies at his
request, and when they had retired, thc wit
ness said, in conversation with Newcomb, he
had been told that Melville on one occasion
placed a gun at Neweomb's head and ex
claimed : " Yod d—d Yankee son of a b —h,
I have seen better men than, you killed for
less things than that." Newcomb said this
was because when Melville found fault with
him for not pulling hard enough at the sledge,
he had quit and told bim, he could do no
Raymond L. Newcomb, naturalist of the
Jeannette expedition, then took the stand
and gave an account of the troubles between
himself and Melville. He thought Melville
had a spite against him and tried to "sit
down ou him," In one ofthe quarrels Mel
ville had said to him, "God d—n it, I have
seen better men than you shot for less things
than that." ills reply to Melville had been
that there was a rifle and he could shoot him
if he wanted to, but he had no right to talk
to him that way and he knew it.
Witness also described the trouble between
himself and Delong, whicli ended iu the lat
ter's ordering him to erase the words "iu
charge," wherever lie wrote Raymond L.
Newcomb naturalist in charge. Witness
thought that all hands on the expedition were
at strife most oi the time, and alter theJeau-
QCtte got in the ice, and it was believed the
expedition would ht: a failure. Captain De
long, in his opinion, 'tried to foment the
strife, in order to lay blame on the tnen.
Upon cross examination Newcomb said.he
thought Collins was not treated right by the
officers of the expedition, other thau Chipp
and Danenhower, and that he himself, had
been treated with indignity by Mellville and
Delong. If he had beeu freer and untram
melled when he went before ths court of in
quiry he might have answered its questions
more fully. Dr. Collins was mistaken in
saying that Melville placed a gun to wit
nesses head. Adjourned.
THE MISSOURI REPUBLICANS,
Filley Defeated But Allowed to Retire
Sedalta, Mo., April 9.—The Republican
state convention met at 10 o'clock this morn

horu, chairman of the state committee, who
introduced Hon. Chester A. Krum, St. Louis

dress thankine- the convention for the honor
conferred, and congratulated the Republican
party on its principles, past success and fut
ure prospects. Committees of one from each

A mass meeting of both Filley and anti-
Filley delegates met in Germania hall this
forenoon in the interest of harmony
and united action. Mr. Filley called
the meeting to order, and in a few
remarks urged the delegates to lay
aside old issues act as though there were
no differences or factions in the party, and
the present ticket and platform, wliich even
Republicans would endorse witliout ques
tioning the source whence they came. Ex-
Congressman McLean was elected chairman
and spoke in the same strain as Filley. Sev
eral delegates of both factions spoke in the
interest of harmony, and the meetiug ad
journed with apparent good feeling.
FILLEY IX THE CONVENTION".
Prior to adjournment a motion to invite
Mr. Filley, who was not a delegate to the
convention, but who wa3 in the hall, to a
seat on the platform was carried unanimous
ly, and that gentleman came forward and
made a speech. He urged harmony be
tween the contending factions, stating that
his reception by the convention was more
than he had reason to expect, that he did not
wish to be chairman of the new state com
mittee, and would not take the position
under any circumstances, and would be per
fectly willing to take a back seat. If that
would tend to build up the Republican party.
He then shook hands heartily with Col. Van-
horn and Jno. B. Henderson amid the loud
applause of the convention and retired. The
convention has a very large majority of Anti-
Filleyites in it. Geu. O. Guitar, of Colum
bia, will be permanent chairman.
At seven the convention heard the report
of the committee on credentials, and adopt
ed it. Gen. O. Guitar, of Boone county, was
made permanent chairman; Jas. C. Broad
well, of St. Louis, secretary, delegates at
large, R. T. Vauhorne, John B. Henderson,
Gen. Prentiss aud E. H. Havens.
The committee on resolutions reported the
following, wliich was adopted:
Pesolved, That the Republicans of Missouri,
in convention assembled, renew their alleg
iance and adherence to the principles of the
Republican party, as enunciated in the
national platform of 1S80, and carried bythe
national administration of President Arthur.
Resolved, That the Republican party of
Missouri, having buried all past differences
and being now united and harmonized and
ready to march forward in solid
phaianx to battle against the com-
mon enemy, will discountenance
any man or set of men, who
seek to create dissention in the ranks, and
under its representatives hereby pledge our
unfaltering support to the national nominees
of the party.
Having full faith and confidence in the
wisdom and ability of the Republican party,
we leave to the delegates assembled in the
national convention the formulation of reso
lutions upon national questions. Adjourned.

Washington, April 9.—Inter-state com
merce measures, in which Held Mr. Reagan,
of Texas, has labored so unsuccessfully for
the past four years, are not likely to receive
more attention at the present session than
heretofore. This was made evident in the
house proceedings to-day; when the special
order for the consideration of the inter-state
commerce bill was set aside forthe benefit
of bills to erect public buildings and
matters of local interest only, but es
pecially important to members seeking
to establish themselves on a firm basis with
tlieir constituents. The same fate is await
ing the shipping bill, agaiust v.hich little if
any opposition is arrayed, and after a long
wrangle the supporters of the public build
ings bills succeeded in obtaining favorable
action in the Keokuk, Iowa, and Waco.
Texas, bills. It appeared that a treaty had
been effected, whereby these bills, appro
priating §150,000 for Keokuk and $100,000
for Waco public buildings should
stand together, and the combination
of west and south was too strong to be bro
ken. Several bills making appropriations
for public buildings at various places have
been passed by the senate, and are now lying
on the speaker's table. The house naturally
desires at this late stage of the session to pass
biil- of like character, so they may receive
the favorable action of the senate, aud upon
the concurrence of the senate largely depends
the concurrence of the house in bills on the
speaker's table. In this way legislation is
accomplished by forced compromises. The
best that can be hoped for inter-state
commerce at this session is the creation ofa
commission to examine and report atthe
next session what legislation,if any.is needed
to protect citizens against the exaction of un
equal freight and passenger tolls by railroads
and other vehicles of transportation. An Im
mense number of petitions has been reeeived
from all sections, praying legislation in this
behalf, but corporate iuiluences, rein
forced by strict constitutional con-
structionists, are too patent
in the halls of congress to permit the passage
of any iuter-state commerce measure.

ternates. Col. Bob lngersoll was badly
beaten. Of 110 delegates only twenty-five

DIED OF PNEUMONIA.
A mau named John Treadwell registered
at the National hotel last Saturday afternoon.
He was not seen again, and this morning the
clerk was sent to ascertain what had become
of him. The servant brought word that the
man seemed dead. The clerk went to the
room and found the body lying across the
bed, unclothed excepting his shirt and vest.
On the table was and empty flask. xYmong
the effects of the deceased were papers Indi
cating his connection with the paymaster's
department of the army, §11 in money,
aud a life insurance policy for ;$5,000.
Deceased waa recognized as an army pay
master's clerk, who stopped at the hotel last
fall, and registered from Tucson, Ariz. His
baggage checks indicate that he came last
from Boston. An autopsy revealed that his
death was the result of pneumonia.

THE HENNEPIN CANAL.
Secretary Wright, of the Mississippi river
convention, is a good deal puzzled just now
to know what ought to be done in regard to
the Hennepin canal. He has been appealed
to by the friends of the canal,
especially the Iowa members, to go
before the river ahd harbor committe
and urge the insertion of a clause in thc river
and harbor bill appropriating $500,000 for
the Hennepin canal bill, for the Hennepin
canal is so far down on the calendar that
there is no hope of reaching it this session,
and so the only hope, the canal has is to get
it into the river and harbor bill. Members
of the committee insist that they have no
power to insert canal appro
priations in the river and harbor
bill, and that if thev ODen the doors toone
canal tbey must load down their bill with
every canal in the country. Mr. Wright is
undecided whether it is his duty under the
resolutions of the convention to go before
the committee in behalf of the Hennepin
canal or not.
RAILROAD LAND GRANTS.
In all probability the house will this week
enter upon the consideration of one or two
b'.lls looking to the forfeiture < f land grants
covering great tracts now held by railroad
(.nmnrntirtna 'Thnfl far +>_n _i_\mmi'lt_._i
v.uipuittLiMU£3. i _iiiL.o iai but \_l_n___l___L_.l_,_A_l_.
on public lands, or a majority, have treated
all land grant roads as having no vested
rights, and have proceeded to forfeit the
same, so far as their vote is concerned,
with a seeming view more to manu
facture political capital for several
members who call themselves grangers
than upon a fair judicial determination of
the equities involved. The committee
which recommended the forfeiture of a
large tract of railroad land yesterday, voted
on the important question with as much
nonchalance as a municipal common coun
cil would condemn an alley made over to
the goats. One of the first bills to be brought
up is that declaring the forfeiture of the
grant made to the California & Oregon
and the Oregon & California railroads.
These roads form the connecting link be
tween California and the capital of Oregon.
It was in the construction of a portion of.
these roads that Ben Halliday, the well
known Californian, was wrecked. The roads
are now being pushed forward with rapidity,
and despite the early spirit of hostility shown
by the public lands committee to railroads,
since the commencement of the present ses
sion of congress the president has ap
pointed commissioners on behalf of
the United States to report upon
and accept completed sections. Up to the
present time a force of upward of 4,000 men
have been at w;ork upon the construction and
in the last two years over $2,000,000 has been
expended upon the California portions alone.
The report of Chairman Cobb and a bare ma
jority of his committee recommends an ab
solute forfeiture of the grant, while the
minority of the committee ask that
the railroad be given until January 1,
1885, to complete the work to the
Oregon line. Against the for
feiture of the grant the
Sacramento board of trade protests, and over
300 business firms of Sacramento. In the
case of the Northern Pacific road and of the
Oregon & California there is a great deal of
equity to be considered, which may send
both bills back to the public lands committee
for amendments. The trouble with the
agitation of such a matter is ill advised in
that it tends to depreciate the values of stocks
and make the sufferers the innocent holders

Washington, April 9.—The house com
mittee on judiciary has agreed ujion a joint
resolution proposing a constitutional amend
ment relating to currency. The proposed
amendment is as follows:
powers granted to congress by the constitu

power to pass any law making anything but
gold and silver a legal tender in payment of
debts, except after a declaration of war, or in
case of rebellion or invasion, when the pub

amendment determined upon in committee
Sherman's amendment was agreed on. which
provides for the prohibition of the transpor

the quarantine and slaughter of diseased
animals, etc. The amendment agreed upon

amendments, provides that whenever iu the
opinion of the president it shall

lamation suspend the importation of any or
all classes of animals for any or all time, and
change, modify or renew such proclamation
as the public good may require, and during

CAPT. BYRON L. CROUCH.
Makes Some Interesting Statements
Regarding: the Crouch Trial.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, April 9.—Capt. Byron L. Crouch,
brother of Jud. Crouch, charged jointly with
Holcomb with the murder of the Crouch
family, at Jackson, Mich., is
at the Grand Pacific. He is
returning to San Antonio, where he proposes
staying until the trial of his brother occurs.
The court at Jackson commences April 14,
but Capt. Crouch says the prosecution will
not have its case ready by that time. He
believes, of course, that hia brother and
brother-in-law are innocent of the crime.
They have been admitted to bail in §20,000,
and Capt Crouch is one of the bondsmen.
He enumerated the sureties, whom he de
scribed as men of means and standing, and
he said they would not have gone on the
bond had they not believed the prisoners
wrongly held. He believed that the accused
will be acquitted. Brown he characterizes as
an unmitigated scoundrel and perjurer. He
thinks that "Scotty," the Chicago crook, now
jailed at Jackson, may know something
which will lead to the discovery of the real
"I had an interview with him," said Capt.
Crouch, "and he told me some things which
he could not have known unless he saw the
papers described. I think he knows the
murderers, and will tell if Gen. Regole
will pardon him. Herrington was also en
gaged in the murder to my belief. Apart
from these two men I have no clues. Pink
erton is still working on the case, and he
relies on the trial to develop something to
aid the investigation. The defense did not
produce all its evidence on the preliminary
trial, but reserved it to bring out later."
In appearance Capt. Crouch is tall and
angular, with a face in whieh determination
and energy are clearly stamped. He dresses

A LIVELY ROW,
After a Hand to Hand Contest Two
Sets of Delegates are Elected.
Albany, N. Y-, April 9.—The Republican
convention to elect two delegates to the Chi
cago convention frpm this congressional dis
trict assembled at Slingeriand's to-day.
Great interest was taken in the meeting by
outsiders, owing to the knowledge that the
Draper and Smythe factions were in num
bers about equal. The first conflict took
place over the delegates from the Sixteen th
ward. This trouble was settled by the ballot
taken for president. The chair announced
the result: George H. Fitts, of
Cohoes, 74, William H. Haskell, of
Albany seventy three. The latter was sup
ported by the anti-administration men. The
vote had hardiy been announced when a
rush was made for the platform, and imme
dietely the officers and reporters found them
selves in the midstof a surging, figuring and
hustling, pulling and yelling mob. The sup
porters of Haskell gained the platform, and
lifting the chairman and secretary, threw
them bodily from the platform. Haskell was
immediately installed as chairman, and
formed a cordon round him which the Fitts
adherents could not break. Hand to hand
encounters were constant, and the yells and
cheers unceasing. Haskell was maintained
in position long enough to entertain and
put a motion fora recess. The opposing fac
