3 i :.s ti:i;da y's markets.
There was a better feeling on'change yester
day than for several days past, and values of
produce generally appreciated. There was a
much stronger market at all the /great centers

on Wednesday. Coin and oats sold up ivjc, and
pork and lard rose 22@12c respectively. The
day was a triumph for the bulls. Tho stock
market opened weak and declining, and contin

The people of Maino next September will
be called upon to vote on a prohibition
amendment to the constitution. Now, pro
hibition rests only on a statutory provision,
liable to repeal at any time, but engrafted
into the constitution, prohibition would be
lifted out of the domain of politics, and be
nolonger at the mercy of party fluctuations.
This vote in Maine will be looked to with in
terest, as showing whether a generation of
temperance agitation in that state has edu
cated the people up to a constitutsonal pro
hibition of the liquor traffic. So far it is al
leged that prohibitory legislation has not
been effectual in Maine, and it now remains
to be seen whether a majority of the people
will vote for a constitutional barrier.
TnE letter of the lion. SamuelJ. Tilden,
read at the banquet 3f tbe Iroquois club at
Chicago, Tuesday night, contained the most
pointed public utterance he has ever made
relative to the groat fraud of 1870. That
passage, which was as follows, will bear re
"Ta our own'conntry the government instead of
standing as an impartial arbiter amid the conflicts
Of maturing opinion and contending interests
!k,k itself descended Into the arena equipped with
all the weapons of partisanship. Its myriads of
• :ili rs. iis alliances with or against vast
pecuniary interests, its unlimited command of
money le\ied from its dependents'and contractors
have sufficed to determine a mujority in every
case hut ono. In that case it collected military
force around the capitol and by (bis and other
• intimidated the congressional repre
aentatives of a majority of the people to relin
•, i sli \\. fiiiit..- of their victory and to surrender
the go\ ernmont to the control of a minority."
Tin greeting which this sentiment received
from the eminent men gathered in Chicago
showed that the fraud of 1876 is an infamy
Which will neither be forgotten or forgiven
and —60 proved that the ardent desire of the
Democracy is to avenge the wrong bv the sec
ond (.lection of Mr. Tilden. It will take a
declination of the most overwhelming posi
tiveness to prevent his unanimous and en
thusiastic selection when the convention
meets in July.

THE IROQUOIS BANQUET.
The annual banquetofthe Iroquois club
of Chicago held Tuesday evening at the
Palmer House was an occurence of a national
character. The composition of the club in
cludes tie- very best men in Chicago, and
many from other places, who are noted for
their brains and their social and political
strength. The club is one which, from its
location, and from the quality of the mem
bership, carries an influence which i
to all parts of the country, and is potential
wherever it reaches.
The annual banquet is far more than a
mere social reunion. [t becomes on such
occasions the moutb piece of the represenl i
tive Democracy ofthe entire country. It
includes among IU guests and speakers
many of the best minds, the most experi
enced thinkers, within the Democratic or
ganization. Whatever may be said by this
gatheringat these annual anniversaries is
entitled to respect, as it is certain that what
is then enunciated is the carefully prepared
opinions of the mosl respected and reliable
representatives of the Democratic parly.
There is nothing in the nature of a heated
debate, to waken the passions, and elicit
hasty and ill-judged utterance. Spontane
ous cypres,ions,which may fill the place and
the environment, but are unsuited for uni
versal distribution, have no ntterance. All
is calm, all that is Baid is the result of de
liberation, and wdiat is slated goes to the
country with all the care and finish of a ju
Hence what • said a) these banquets may
be accepted by all as tbe opinion of the
leading minds of the party. It is from these
opinions the world can gain its knowledge of
the real composition of the party which they
represent, and the policy which it purposes
tor the control of political events. There is
no buncombe, no talking for mere effect, no
expressions which may mean one thing or
another, as mere policy may determine. It
is a gatheringal which nospeakercan afford to
be insincere or play the part of politicians,
orspeaktothc galleries, or aim to secure
mere popular effect.
Taking the speeches and letters delivered
and read at the last anniversary, it will be
found that there is a striking agree
ment in the enunciation of the duty ofthe
Democratic party, and that the ground thus
covered, while it includes the whole country,
presents nothing impracticable, nothing that
is not of vital interest, not only for to-day
but for the future. The points presented
an- few but direct, withal, and axiomatic.
They demand thai there should be preserved
such a balance between the states and the
Jed .ra I government that the rights of neith
er shad be infringed upon by the other and
that each shall be sovereign in its own
sphere. This is insisted on by Brecken
ridge, Tilden, Doolittle, Hampton, and oth
ers. Another point is, that the people shall
nol be taxed to support a few individual In
terests, and this was the theme of Cox, Mor
ton and Reagan. The third principal point
pre i*ut-ri was. the absolute necessity for
the correction of the abuses which now pre
va y j„ the control of the country, in the
fostering of monopolies and corporations
and the e_travagance of the public expendi
These arc flic main suggestions ofthe
speakers and thej are sufficient for the De
mocrat platform in the coming campaign.
In the presentation of these points, there
were i mphatic assertions that the Democracy
should make these issues squarely and fight
Shera through, and that it would be far bet
ter br be defeated in a battle, in which posi
tiv< Isimesare involved, than to win a cam
paign in which the sole issue should be the
getting oi' office, regardless of principles, or
the destiny of '!i'' country. There was de
veloped a marked determination to fight the
coming contest .vithout reference to the de
mand of mere Bailsmen. It serins to be
tbe opinion of the speakers at the Iroquois
anniversary that victory, it won at all must be
won in the Interests of the people and not In
those ofthe place-hunters. Evidently this can
be accomplishment only by a bold enuncia
tion of principles ami an adhesion to them
to the end. There has been too much sin
uosity and suppleness In the
later history of Democratic
party. Tr bas neglected principle for tho
sake of placating certain interests, as if, in
the words of Ex-Governor Morion, the sole
purposes of party platforms ami politic—or
ganizations arc to pursue and procure public
positions where honors and emoluments are
enviable and remunerative. It is essential
tn drop this mere place hunting and take a
position which will command the respeci of
the country and in which If defeat be result,
it will be unaccompanied by disgrace. If the
Democracy can win at all, it can only be, by
an aggressive flight in which spoils are not
at issue, ami the remedy of pending evils is
tho object sought for.
THE SWAIM SCANDAL.
Juegc Advocate General Swaim, of the i
tai '8 Army is not appearing to very
good advantage ;lt tQe present time. A bank
ing firm of Washington city has filed wi
the secretary of war grave charges against
his inl grit-." in transactions had with that
firm, and ask that the charge.-, be investigated
by d court martial. Tha case against the
Judge Advocate General consists of two ele
ments, iirst, In a private transaction
with the bankers, he placed with
them $5,000, taking a due pill therefor.
This sum he was allowed to check out, as if
upon open account, and when be had drawn
all the money. Instead of surrendering the
due bill, he proceeded to dispose of it to
other parties. The second element is as
sistinc to negotiate fraudulent army vouch
ers, knowing them to be such. What de
fense the accused may make has not trans
pired, but upon the supposition that lie can
make an explanation that will exculpate him,
there remains the fact that if he were
B man of that nice sense
ef personal honor aud official carefulness
and integrity which the Judge Advocate
General nnrst certainly should possess, he
would have sit ordered his transactions that
such charges could not be brought against
him and a court martial demanded for their
Before the war. this individual was a very
obscure private citizen" of a small county
town in Ohio. He enter.- the volunteer
service, and when the war ended
such representations were made to
to Secretary of War Stanton
that he was made a Major in the' regular
army, being jumped over the heads ot regu
lar army men in a way that caused sirae
wonder, though those in the secret knew that
this promotion was made by the Secretary of
War at the request of General Garfield, for
whom Mr. .Stanton entertained the most un
bounded esteem. The appointment, was,
therefore, political, and not based upon mil
itary merit or considerations. Swaim had
won tbe favor of General Garfield, aud in
deed bad placed that unfortunate gentleman
under obligation to him for pecuniary reasons,
taking care, how ". er, to secure himself by
j bond aud mortgage. Under the guise of
THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. FRIDAY MOKMA'W. APRIL 181884.:
friendship this pecuniary obligation existed
until the time of General Garfield's death,
since which period it has been extinguished.
It was always a matter of some speculation
among Gen. Garfield's friends why it was
that a man of the calibre and coarseness of
Swaim was so much in his society and so
deeply in bis confidence. The "major's"
army position was a sinecure, and though he
was stationed at Leavenworth, he continued
to have a nearly perpetual leave
of absence, which doubtless was
very cheerfully granted to one
for whom regular army men never could, and
never did, entertain any measure of esteem
or respect. When Garfield became a candi
date for President, ho requested that Swaim
might be sent to serve him as a private sec
retary, a request the war office readily grant
ed. In the dark plottings of that campaign
and the sub-soil work done by Dorsey and
others, the candidate's private secretary bore
a hand, and became the custodian of the
secrets of his chief, as well as of others, which
iu due time he used to his own advantage.
After the Republican President was elect
ed, the '•Major'' came forward with the mod
est reqaesl that, in view of bis great services
during the canvas he be given the position
of Judge Advocate General. The President
was perplexed and in hesitation, for no one
knew better than be how absurd it was to put
this coarse, unlearned fellow into a position
of so much importance whoso knowledge
of law, civil or military was about as extend
ed as the brass buttons he wore, arid most
embarrassing of all it had to jump him over
the heads of men of experience
and culture wto outranked him
in to e army, ami were fairly entitled to pro
motion. The "Major" saw the hesitation of
the Executive, and turned his modest re
quest Into a demand. In a moment of
weakness the President yielded aud ordered
the appointment, to the astonishment of hi-s
personal friends and the gnat vexation of
all connected with army affairs. While tin
appointment was the will of the Commander
in-chief of the army and navy, it had no
merit whatever, end waa brought about under
the circumstances bo briefly stated above.
Some minor scandals have before this, ob
tained in regard to the Judge Advocate
General, who has repeatedly demonstrated
bis ignorance and utter Incapacity for the
office. The chargi' now lodged against him
is practically admitted by the fact that he
iias paid ba •!■: th; money, und the bankers
publish a card stating that the charges are
wisbdrawn. Many a man arrested for burg
lary would be glad to bave the charge lotth
tir nfi) on similar terms. It is about time
that this Judge Advocate General should be
withdrawn from the public service.

SwiJTBUBNE makes a heavy dash at Lord Byron
as :i poet, Baying that his verse is "not the bro
ken gallop or rough vi-.'or; itis the sickly
stumble of drivelling debility." Bnt Byron will
be read when Swinburne and others, far his
superiors are forgotten. Neither England nor
the world has produced a greater poetic genius
than Lord Byron. With much that is censur
able, he has given to the world productions con
taining the true poetic fire, now tender, now
startling and sensational, showing him to be
a master of the keys that play upon the human
heart. The English language contains no nobler,
no more highly poetic verse than is to lie found
in his writings—and it may we'd he claimed that
in gome of his loftiest and in some of his most
tender and pathetic strains he is positively un
equalled. He swept the lyre with a master hand,

Philadelphia is a great old circus town and
hitherto it has been the custom when a circus
made its street parade to summon the police
as a guard of honor to escort the proces
sion over the town. While the police have
been thus engaged the precincts from
which they have been summoned were ex
posed, and instances have transpired where a
number of large and small house robberies took
place v»hile the police were absent marching with
the elephants and escorting the monkey cages.
[t has just dawned upon the authorities that as
the circus is in no danger of being stolen, it
might be a good plan to keep the police on their
heats for tiie protection of the citizens, who
were exposed to the attention of the mob of
theives sure to be on hand.
The following item-is making tho rounds of
the papers, though whether it started as an
April-fool hoax is not known, but it is as truth
ful as the Xew York 'i'rify'ihKS manufactured
cable message pretending to give the views of
"Mr. Arnold" in regard to the people of Chicago.
The story runs: "The noted De La Martyr,
Greenback Congressman and red-hot-politician,
is now said to be preaching in a Methodist
cliurchin St. Paul. He has introduced an or
chestra into the choir, consisting of two violins.
bass viol and three brass pieces. The old-fash
ioned members have nearly all left the church,
bnt the house is crowded all the time, mostly
with young people."
Arrtoros ot the movement to displace the
study of (ireek in the colleges, the following is as
effective an argument against the continuance of
attention to that dead language, as any advanced
by Charles Francis Adams, the leader ofthe
anti-Greek rebellion. Said an old preacher:"Why,
my bretheriug, every young man who is going to
preach thinks he must be otf to some college and
study a lot of Greek and Latin. All nonsense!
All wrong! What did I'eter and Paul know about
Greek? Why, not a word, my brother—g. No!
Peter and Paul preached in the plain, old English
and so'll I." If we do as Peter and Paul did, we
are safe enough, surely.
Pehe Htacixtiie announces himself in favorof
cremation, and at the meeting of tho Xew Oi
lcans Cremation society he said he had been in
some way or other forced to study the question
of cremation, or to speak more correctly, and, at
the same time more prudently, of incineration.
"1 thank you, for I have been convinced that all
my objections were based on mere prejudices.
As for those which have a foundation, they ap
pear to me unanswerable."
Trre Lancet, an eminent medical journal, is of
the opinion that women arc too delicately framed
for gymnastic exercises, and with all the blind
ness of professional bigotry, condemns those
who advocate the development of the muscular
girl. From this opinion the National Health so
ciety dissents, holding that the physical educa
tion of girls is neglected, aud that a genera'
adoption of moderate gymnastic exercises will be
beneficial to the sex.
Mb. Kf.ely, the mysterious motor man, bobs
up again, this time lucidly to remark, that he
"will have tho graduation of the generator con
cluded by the end of the present month, or .per
hupi later" It probably will be "later." Has
not Mr. Keely taxed the patience of the public
about long enough? Seven years ought to suffice
for the "graduation" of a "generator,'' and it is
about time for him to graduate himself.

Investigating the Way Horses are
Bought and Sold in the Fire
The fire department committee of the city
council, met last night to investigate the al
leged crookedness in horse flesh matters.
Nicholas Hardy was the com plaining witness.
The following is an abstract of the testi
Mr. Hardy said there was insufficient no
tice given of tbe sale of the condemned
horses, and that some of them were as good
as now in the department; that in relation to
tbe purchase of new horses the committee
gave him no show, though bis horses were
better than those they purchased, and that
they refused to give his horses even a trial;
tVat he was told by one Burton that the pow
ers that were wanted was $25.50 out of the
seller for every horse they accepted;
was asked to keep still about
this talk afterwards by Com
missioner Schliek on two occasions. He
asked Dr.Berkman,the veterinary -urge in of
the department, why the com miss
didn't give him a sight, and he said they
didn't think Ids horses were heavy enough
ami they wouldn't have them: one borsc
condemned from No. 1 steamer was better
than the new roan bought of Chas. Brown,
a bi Iter mover and a quieter
horse; he offered to put the horses be \ A[ \
for sale to any test 01 service or weight and
if they were beaten by anything be would
give tiiem to the city: only he and Jim
Murmane were the bidders present at the
sale of condemned horses; be was told of
the sale, by the doctor and Schliek. He didn't
t. II any one he would give the parties "$25 fee
on the sale of his horses per bead, bnt that
he would make it right with the old man."
Geo. Wentworth knew tbe condemned
grey team, and offered Schliek *_."ii for them
in the street the day before the sale: be r -
[erred him to tbe doctor. The next day he
went to the doctor and found the live hor-, a
bad been sold. II*- should have considi r d
the gray team cheap al 1300, and consid re'd
their sale had been improperly ud\< I
Schliek told him he offered ton much lor the
horses al the time he made the offer, but j
didn't toil him they were to be sold next
Mr. Mulligan, driver of hook and ladder
No. ".. testified thai the Bohn horses bought
were driven three weeks before one of them
balked, but that he. wouldn't do 11 when a
span of leaders wen- ahead of him: had
driven in the Brooklyn lire department lii
tcen years, and knew good horse-.: he was
consulted about the Bohn borer s and pre
ferred them to others offered the department
at the time of their purchase. One of
Bohn's men bad told him one of the span
Commissioner Prendergrast was on the
horse committee; Doctor Berkman did not
advise the commission to buy the Hardy
horses; the doctor said test them if you want
to, but after that, relying on his judgment,
the commissioners did aot carr' to.
Tom l);ivis wanted one of the condemned
horses fur $125, but could get no chance to
buy the animal.
Chief Biack Baid, the Bohn horso, who
balked, was high strung and nervous, and
was laid ii]> with a Bore foot, having stepped
on himself. Some most nervous horses
atfirstmade the besl horses finally in th^ de
partment. This horse had been bitched up
beside a number of green horses, which
might account for his balking. He W8S
giving good satisfaction Lately, andtbe Bohn
span was tin' besl span in tbe department.
Capt. 1*. Berkey thought the highest price
could have been got from draymen and
truckmen by putting up the condemned
horses at auction on short time advertise
(i. Bohn, ofthe firm of Bohn & Co., who
sold the city the Bohn horses tor $650, said
they wi re selected each from a separate span,
and neither of them ever balked when in
He considered the span worth §700 to-day,
and would be glad to take them back from
the city al what thev gave, but had not yet
paid. When he sold them he had not work
for all his teams, but now he had plenty.
He had never had fees mentioned to him in
their sale and Dr. Prices was his veterinary
surgeon. lie had exmanined the hprsri
claimed to balk and found that it had been
burned on the back at the Buford fire, which
he thought accounted for all its actions.
Jacob Bowerman had sold two horses to
the city for $700, never heard anything about
fees and produced his bank look to show
what he did with the money.
John Wagener sold two horses to tho city
this spring for $600 and no mention was
made, of a fee; didn't know of the sale of
Charles Brown sold nine head of horses to
the city for $1,200. He couldn't wait for "no
funds'' in the treasury and Mr. Schliek paid
him $1,100 in a check aud $88 a few days
after so that he could go after more horses,
and he receipted the bill. He under
stood Schliek was authorized to do this by
the commissioners as they wanted the horses,
which suited them, for immediate use ou the
new engines. He couldn't wait for the
money then from the city, and it was owing
him $1,425 now for horses, which was not to
its credit as a paymaster. He never heard
of any fees, or paid any fees ou his horse
sales'to anyone whatever.
James Murnane offered $700 for seven
condemned horses and bought five for $425;
paid all they were worth; had sold two he
couldn't use for $:.'75. a ml the city could
have tho three others back for $150. He
had offered them at that price to Hardy, and
he wouldn't give but $140.
Chief Blrck recalled—Said the horses sold
were unfit for tiro work, and were on the
doctor's list after ever}- fire, thought they sold
well; and Chas. Brown, recalled, said that
Dr. Berkman had tried to have him buy the
condemned horses which he did not want, or
bring parlies to do so.
Commissioner Delano said the commis
sion had authorized Schliek to purchase the
Brown horses snd agreed to reimburse him
when tiie city could pay the bill.
Ed. Hem heck, Schliek's book-keeper, pro
duced the day book on which be himself on
the dates in question, charged Scbiiek with a
check of $1,100 and $88 in cash.

The property included stock iu the Pennsyl

Wasiiin-c.to.v, April 17.—Military, as' well
as civic affairs, were agitated to-day ov> r
the chargi s preferred to the secretary of war
by Mr. Bateman, a prominent banker of this
city, against Judge Advocate General Swaim,
that Swaim de] I I $5,000, taking a receipt
. ng out the
amount und then hypothecating u mi i
dum receipt for the same deposit, also that
Bwaim was concerned in the bush
accounts discounted in an
illegal way. Swaim denied tbe charges In a
most emphatic manner, but from the fuct
that Bau man stated this afternoon he would
witndraw them, and that the affair
would br.- satisfactorily adjusted, it is
evident he bas forced
to u set— ment. Swaim said the
question was a matter for the civil courts
and not for a court martial to decide. Bate
man was a revenue marine officer and ri
signcd some two years Bincetoenl
banking business. Swaim was very inf
matc with him, and being
means was believed to be a silent, partner in
the establishment, as he has the knack of
turning what i< culled "an penny."
He lived shortly after the war in Lawrence,
K.;s., and was a mcmbcT of a law firm loan
ing money at 5 per cent a month, (iar
field obtained for him the Becond lieu! tnan
cy of the Thirty-fourth infantry in 1866, and
i;. It r0 had him appointed major and judge
advocate. !!■ was subsequently stationed al

A TRADE EFFECTED.
When Garfield was nominated for the
presidency Swaim went t.> Mentor as chief of
tbe literary bureau during the campaign of
1880, and got Garfield into m- end of trouble
afl •!■ Garfield's election. A trade was effi cted
with Hayes, by which Judge Advocate (len
eral Drum was retired, and Swaim jumper!
o«er the heads of alibis seniors, and was
made Drum's successor, in return for which
Garfield promised to provide substantially
for Col. W. K. Rogers, Hayes' private sec
retary, formerly a well-known resident
of St. Paul. Secretary Ramsey had Intended
to press Col. Thomas L. Bank, also favora
bly known at St. Paul, for the place, but the
bargain apscl previous calculations, much to
the disgust of army officers, who realized that
au able lawyer and competent judge advo
cate had been Bet aside for an ignoramus.
Tho result of this bargain was as unfortu
nate for Rogers as for the army, as be was
set aside for Stanley Matthews' nomination
lo the supreme bench.
A PIT] vl'.I.K KiXOHAMUS.
Since Swaim's induction Into the judge
advocate general's position he has made him
self superlatively ridiculous, aud been re
peatedly overruled by Secretary Lincoln, who
finds his ignorance absolutely pitiable. His
last official report is a curiosity of public lit
erature, aud afforded much amusement to
the legal profession by misquotations of legal
terms and Dogbi rrian employment of Latin
phrases. The late "chum cabinet," Swaim,
Rockwell aud Stanley Brown, were all inter
ested at the outset in the success of Bate
man's banking scheme and made their bead
quarters there. They seem to have fallen
out.d'late, and this affair is but one ofthe
BUKKOWS TAKING IJIS TIME.
The solicitor of the treasury department is
in great embarrassment, owing to the non
qualification of ex-Congressman Burrows, of
Michigan, recently appointed anil confirmed
as solicitor. Whin Solicitor Ray nor died,
Assistant Solicitor Robinson acted as chief
for ten days, but under the decision of the
attorney general he could not act longer.
Burrows' oath was sent him to Michigan with
the request to qualify, so that Robinson
could transact the business of the office, sign
htters and institute suits. No reply has
teen made to date Dy Burrows, and the whole
business of the office is at a standstill. The
transfer of internal revenue collectors under
consideration cannot be made, because bonds
cannot be examined and approved untii
Burrows qualifes or assumes the duties, and
matters arc piling up in an endless mass,
which it will take months to dispose of. The
question is what bas become of Burrows, aud
has he accepted the office.
Mr. Morrison was wise in consenting to
defer further debate ou the tariff and allow
consideration of the pension appropriation
bill and other pending business. Members
became alarmed at the wide range taken
in the discussion of the tariff, inasmuch aa
it became evident that important private and
local legislation must suffer, which would
make trouble at home for members seeking
—nomination and re-election.
PRIVATE —XL DAT.
To-morrow is private bill day, which will
probably be invaded by the further consider
ation of the pension appropriation bill, if it
shall appear possible to reach a vote on that
measure. Saturday has been made a special
order for busiusss reported from the labor
committee, and Monday must be devoted to
the passage of bills on the calendar under
suspension of the rules. Tuesday, however,
will chronicle the resumption of the tariff de
bate, and many members have absented
themselves and are closeted in the apart
ments preparing tariff speeches to be deliver-,
ed when the floor can be obtained.
INTERESTING RE ID—TO.
The reply of Attorney General Brewster
to the resolution offered by Secretary Van
Wvck concerning tbe compensation paid to
the star route counsel is a curious document,
and the accompanying copies of the corres
pondence between Brewster, Bliss, Ker and
others relating to their fees will make in
teresting reading when published as execu
tive documents. The tenor of this corfes
podence shows Brewster to have been in
conspiracy with Bliss to charge large fees
prior to Brewster's appointment as attorney
general when employed as counsel in the
star route casses by Attorney
General MacVeagh. When
Brewster succeeded to the attorney general
ship he became alarmed at the newspaper
criticisms of tbe excessive fees paid Bliss
and Ker, and suggested an abatement of
some of the charges. Bliss refused, but
Ker consented to the reduction, and the pa
pers embrace copies of this delectable corres
pondence, which fully sustain the original
charges made by Senator Van Wyck when
his resolution was presented. The matter is
likely to be discussed in the senate, and Van
Wyck will make music in the air for the de
partment of justice. A rumor was circulated
to-day that the president had requested

The postmaster general was before the
senate committee mi postofflces and posl
roarls to-day, by invitation, to give his view
respecting the proposed revision of the
method of compensating railroad companies
for carrying tin'mails. Tbe bill prepared
by the commission appointed to perfect a
new plan of compensation was discussed.
The postmaster general said it was a good
bill, but expressed the opinion that the rat -
of compensation named in it were too high.
At a meeting to-day of the bouse commit
tee on laws, respecting the election of presi

vides that if the duties of the presidency fall
upon a member of the cabinet/ more than
twelve months before the next ensulngpresi

Mr. Eaton was directed to report the propo

The senate held a brief executive s*ssion

with the Cuban in surgents, was taken up.
Ou recommendation it had been re
ferred to the senate committee on commerce,
and was reported back favorably. Objection
was made to its immediate consideration,
and the subject went over. A recommenda
tion of this character is unusual, and is due
in this instance to the international feature
of the matter.
