Editok Tombstone: Washington
ha? assumed all of the bustle and act
ivity characteristic of the National
Capital at the commencement of an
important session of Congress. The
hotels are filled with strangers. It is
generally believed that the coming
session will be the most interesting
since the war. Most of the members
and senators are in town, and will be
present at the opening of the session,
though a majority have arrived during
the past two or three days, and offer
as an excuse for their dilatoriness the
fact that as they believed that a very
long campaign was before them they
desired to devote as much time as
possible to home affairs before leaving.
There are but few who think that the
session will be finished before next
August. Members appear, generally,
to be reluctant to commit themselves
with regard to any of the important
matters that will demau.l tlicir atten
tion during the cession, though it is
generally thought that the Senate can
be depended upon to take conserva
tive action upou most of the import
ant questions. There Beems to be a
hesitancy among the members about
touching the financial question. There
are nearly as many different theories
among the silver men as there are in
dividuals, though a majority unite in
the opinion that the Bland Uw is ob
jectionable and should be either modi
fied or abolished.
At a caucus of Republican Senators
which was held yesterday, the nomi
nation of General Logan, for the office
of President pro tempore of the Sen
ate, was made unanimous, hut the
honor was declined by him, and the
caucus was adjourned until this after
noon, when a selection will doubtless
Many representatives assembled in
the hall of the house yesterday, and
much interest was manifest in the
question of who would be the Repub
lican nominee for Speaker. The New
York members appear to be unanim
ous in their support of Hiscock, and
express the opinion that he is likely
to secure the nomination. The other
prominent candidates for the honor
are Messrs. Reed, Long and McKinley.
The question is likely to be closely
contested by the mends ot cacn oi
these gentlemen, although the one
who secures the nomination will be
looked upon as the leader of the min
ority. The session i- likely to be one
of sensations. It i- n-inrted upon
good authority that a prominent Sen
ator will introduce a resolution as
foon as the Senate is organized, to in
vestigate the affairs of the Faa-Electrie
Telephone Company, with the pur
pose of developing evidence to im
peach the Attorney General.
As predicted in ray letter of last
week, the President on Wednesday
last appointed Mr. Albert A. Wilson
as Marshal of the District of Colum
bia. The selection of Mr. Wilson
gives general satisfaction. He has for
many years been identified with the
District democracy, and the citizens
consider his selection as an indication
that the President fully recognizes
the evils and injustice which have
heretofore ensued from alien rule, and
it is his intention to appoint citizens
of the District to fill the offices within
The annual session of the Federa
tion of Organized Trades and Labor
Unions of the United States and

ed. One of the important questions
to be considered at the meetiug.will
be the eight hour law, and the atten
tion of Congress will be asked to the
consideration of the question during
the present session.
The annual sale of packages which
have accumulated in the Dead Letter
Office, is advertised to commence next
week. Formerly the sales were held
every two years, but of late the busi
ness of the office has increased to
such an exteqt that it has been found
necessary to hold them annually. The
records of the office show that the
number of letters received during the
past year was 4,843,099, or an average
of 15,673 for each working day. Of
I this number 2,719,380 were sent to the
office because they were uncalled for
at the office to which they were di
rected. 112,648 were returned by
hotel keepers, because departed, guests
to whom they were directed had failed
to leave their address. 133,586 were
held for insufficient postage. 1,797
because they contained unmailble art
icles. 314,719 because of tieir being
illegibly addressed ; while 14,134 bore
no superscription whatever. The
number of parcels of books, merchan
dise, clothing, needlework, &c, which
will be sold to the highest bidders
during tho coming sale, will bo about
90,000. A very large proportion of
the most valuable parcels are address
ed to foreign countries, and have been
detained because they certain dutiable
goods, or exceed the limit of size and
weight. The proceeds of the sales are
deposited in the U. S. Treasury.
There has not been such a rush of
Congressional callers at the White
House since tho busiest office-seeking
days last spring, as occurred yester

This morning at about two o'clock
after Frank Broad had closed his
place of business, and was on his way
home, going up Allen street and turn
ing the corner of Seventh he smelt a
strong odor of coal oil; continuing on
his way up Seventh street, he was
startled to find a pile of woolen rage
and sacks saturated with coal oil on
fire up against the side wall of the
large frame building belonging to
Pasquale Nigro. Frank with con
siderable presence of mind hastily
pulled off his overcoat and smothered
the flames. Upon investigation it was
found that a five gallon can of coal
oil had been emptied on the rags, and
that the side of the house had been
saturated witli the oil. The fiend who
mpde the attempt if caught should
be strung up. Had it not been for

it is hoped that he will be brought to

many more regret that they have not

a number of gardens in this city bear

ing the success attained, and tho per
fect adaptability of the soil, our citi
zens generally are now preparing to
plant trees and vines, this being the
proper season of the year in this
latitude. Mr. Wm. Branch, the nur
seryman and florist, on Fulton street,
between Scond and Third has just
received from San Jose, Cal., the finest
lot of fruit trees of every description,
as well as grape vines, strawberry
plants, rose bushes, etc. They were
all received in excellent condition,
and with proper care will make a
thrifty growth the first year. It is
just as easy to raise a fine fruit tree as
a coltonwood. Give Mr. Brauch a call,
and see his new stock.
