current 1101 ver lo f 43,UK.00 without
further Irititlstion from congress, yet
both pr'sulml anil secreuiv make this
urplui Hi' ground of their argument for
"revision" of tlx hlpa lurid, while at the
am time they join in recommending tbe
repeal uf tlie tobacco tax ami of the tax

Mr. Harrison makee no estimate of the
annual coat of carrying out what he r.
commends, but theeatimatet given above
re rather below than above tbe probable
coat. W hile bl recommendation on tbe
NrifTare Indefinite, he baa made a direct
recommendation for the repeal of the to
bacco tax. from which be might have
been saved by a little figuring in advance.
If he bad added up tbe Item of Increaatd
expense asked for by him, he could have
saved himself from bia somewhat ludi
crioua position of recommending de

Increase of $17u.-H),iit)t In expenditure

by Senator Vest's dressed beef investiga
tors. As showing how the "Big Four'
divided the business. Dr. C. B. Purvis, sur
geon-iu-chief of the Freedmens hospital
swore that Armour & Co have the contract
to supply Iwf and that it is delivered in the
wagons of four different firms in tern of
about a week each.

William H. Hoover testified that be ia

lNoi He said that Mr. C. Carroll told him
last spring it would not be wise for him to
bid on government contracts, for if any of
his friends got any part of those contract.
the Chicago beef men would not sell witness
any meat and would drive him out of the
market. Witness, however, did bid, and
cured some small contracts, w hereupon the
threats outlined by Mr. Carroll were carried
into effect None of the agent of the Chi
cago firms Amour & Co., Swift Ai Co. and
elson Morris would sell witness meat nor
any of his friends who tried to purchase for
Slnnous, to Say the laat.
Complaint was made to the Chicago house
direct by witness, through an attorney. Ar
mour & Co. and Nelson Morris answered,
saying that they did not couutenaucs any
such proceeding. In order to tost the gen-
amass of these disclaimers, witness
took a friemland endeavored to buy
meat of the representatives of these
Chh,io firms, but could not do
so ac the market rates. The agent
showed him some fore-quarters "and priced
the meat at 8 and 9 cents tier pound, lie re
fuse. 1 to take less. My brother Samuel went
directly afterwards and brought away some
oi me same meat at S cent per pound, ask
ing, as you see. inree tune a much of me.
Mr. Porter, of Armour & Co., said they had
no meat for sale, but sold to others before
and after 1 called Mr. Vamell could not
take bats than 7 cents for meat worth about t
or 2',' cent. Mr. Lynn, of Swift & Co.
asked 5 and 6 cents for common fronts of
The almve testimony was corroborated by
George M. Omohun.iro, Washington City
salesman lor eison Morns, w ho swore also
tliat he had instructions from his firm not
to sell to H.orer except at prices above tbe
Tha Investigation Scared 'Era.
A peculiar fact came out just here, and
that was that the boycott lasted about six
weeks and then was lifted. The peculiarity
uere is mat me lifting of the boycott was
simultaneous w itb the la?ginning of the in-
x-s.iKsuoii. -Any ot era win sell to me

that his instructions to charge higher prices

Several congressmen were before the com
mittee to suggest placs for the distribution
or the money for salaries of members still
remaining in the sergeeit-at arms' office.
Mills of Texas outlined a plan which be
thought would be satisfactory, because of it
fairness. He held that as tbe los had oc
curred in November it should be borne by all
tnuee ineuita-n w ho bad receipted for tbeir
Jaovember pay. The remaining money, he
luougut should be distributed among all the
members who had receipted for the month

CatafclngV Idea I Catrhlur.
Catching of Mississippi made a loug
speech, in which be held that tbe surgtsuit-at-
arms was tbe authorised disbursing officer of
the bouse, and consequently the individual
members should not be made to bear the
lnsss caused by the action of Siloott, who
drew the money from the treasury as the
authorised agent ef the aergeant-at-arms.
Cavfching said that if the government would
pay the members their salaries for Novem
ber, which, be bold, have never been lawfully
paid, tbe whole trouble would be ended, be
cause the theft was entirely out of the money
for their salaries for that month.
A member of the committee admitted that
Catching' views bad impressed the commit
tee. Several congressmen submitted plans
for the settlement of the question, and a ma
jority thought that tbe sergeant-at-arms was
th authorised disbursing agent of the bouse,
and that the individual member should not
bear the loss.
A Legal Opinion Cspressed. aaVaTJ
Mr Leedom's legal adviser thinks that the
Individual members of congress should not
los their salaries on account of tbe embexxle
ment He believes that the sergeant-at-arms
is a properly authorized disbursing offi
cer, but maintains that Mr. Leedom's bonds
men cannot be held accountable for the loss,
because their boud expired with th Fiftieth
congreas, for which it was given. Mr. Lee

Lambs and Gextlemkx: Some of my

selves in order to discover the reason why I
had left Wa-hinirton to be present here to
night I do not think I need to set out in order
the motives whii-h have impelled my presence.
Surely no loyal citizen of Chitairo, who sit
here to-night under this witchini;. niaeniticent

which is here presented. Applause.

public duty to mingle with his fellow citizens
in celebrating an event so high and mi worthy
as this. Applause. Xot speech -certainly not
the careless words of ex;empnre speech can

thank the mayor of Chit-ago. to thank all those
