"I am much cha grined at the facility with which Mother Mendelbaum and her two accomplices have eluded justice,' were the words of Dist. Atty. Oiuey to-day, and this expresses the univer sal feeling in this city. Steps will be immed iately taken to confiscate the property of the Mendelbium's bondsmen, and only the outcome of this prolonged nnd costly prose cution will be increased vigilance by the authorities in the direction of cutting off Canadian refuse in the future. To-night's advices from Hamilton, Out., are that the Washington authorities have asked the Governor-General to exert hi prerogative and hand over the prisoners to the United States authorities without extradition, as a matter of international courtesy, but the request was ignored. Steel, Canadian counsel for Madame Mandelbaum, will move to-morrow to recover the jewels, which are valued at U, from the Custom authorities, as it is generally thought that the seizure was illegal. Mrs. Mendelbaum has separated from tlietwo men, but all three remain in Hamilton. A CASE FOR CLEVELAND. The Extradition of a Prisoner In France to be Considered. Aliuny, N. Y..

FRIDAY IN CONGRESS. EVENING SESSION IN THE HOUSE. Mr. Wise Disposed to Prevent any Legislation at the Night Session Pension Matters Considered. Wasuinoton, De.c. 12. The House adopted a concurrent resolution offered by Mr. Kills (La.) providing that a committee consisting of tho President of the Senate and thirteen Senators and the Speaker of the House and one Representative or delegate from each State or Territory bo appointed to partici pate in the ceremony of opening the New Orleans Exposition by telegraph on the 10th inst. Mr. Warner (O) stated that by direction of the pensions committee he rose to a ques tion of privilege. He offered a paper charg ing that on July 5 last Mr. J.D.Taylor spoke six minutes on the Mexican pension bill and two day laW obtained leave to ex tend hia remarks in the Jiecord; that taking advantage of this he had printed in the Ilecord on August" 1, after Congress had ad journed, a speech which did not contain his remarks in the House, but in which lie as sailed members of the committees of the House, itself, and at least one committee of the Senate. Mr. Warner declared uch ref erence unparliamentary and an abuse of the Hour of Representatives. Mr. Brown (Ind.) made the point of order that this was not a question of privilege, but the chair held that it was a question to be decided by the House. ETKNINQ 8E8SIOM. Before recess this afternoon G. D.Wise, of Virginia, made the point of order that no quorum had voted for a recess, but on the appeal of Democratic member?, withdrew his point of order, but gave notice that he would insist that no bill should pass at the night session, unless there was a quorum present. At to-night's session Wise said he had in his hurry gone too far, what he meant was that no bill not absolutely meritorious, should be passed without a quorum. He said hundreds of pensioners had been placed on the roll for political purposes. Mr. Funston (Kansas) asked if he referred to the pension to Mrs. F. P. Blair, Jr., as n political pension. Mr. Henderson (Ills.) asked Mr. Wise to name a pension granted for political purposes. He said if he knew of a single case where a pension was being fraudulently drawn, it was his duty to repoit it and have it stopped. Several members took exception to Wise's reflections upon the members of the Pen sion Committee. A bill was passed giving Mrs. DeLong a pension of :) per month. The next bill was to pension Joseph Raible, who lost an arm after his discharge, while firing a salute at Indianapolis, in honor of a regiment returning home after the close of the war. To this bill Wise objected, and in sisted upon a quorum. To avoid a full stop of proceedings the bill was informally passed over, as there were others likely to meet with the same opposition. Ten bills were agreed to in committee, reported to the House, passed, and at 10:10 p. m. the House adjourned until Monday. BOYS WILL BE BOYS. Three of them who have Gone South to Make Fortunes. Cincinnati, O., Dec. 12. Day before yes terday Wm. F. Strong, living in Hartwell, packed his household goods in a freight car, and startod in the evening for Jacksonville, Fla. The next morning it was discovered that three young boys of the village, sons of excellent parents had disappeared. Then it leaked out that they had concealed them selves in the car, and had started to Florida, where thay expect to make their fortunes. Before going they provided themselves with twenty loaves of bread, two dozen bottles of beer, a big roast of beef and a cask of water. The car will be two weeks upon the road, and unless tho boys were released by some providence, they will certainly be starved by the time they reach their destination. Of course, the car is locked and it is impossible for them to get out unaided. t Democrats Still Banqueting. New York, Dec. 12.

Van Hoten, an undertaker living at 27C College avenue, hitched his horse in front of DeYoung's gro cery, corner of Jefferson and Wealthy ave nue, and went to attend to some business. The horse became frightened, broke loose and ran wildly down Jefferson. Mrs. C. B. Judd, of C7 Fountain street and a visiting friend,MUs White,of Colorado Springs, CoL, were driving south on the s&me avenue and tried to avoid the running house, but were, unluckily, unable to do bo. The wheeU of the driverless wagon struck their osrn and turned them violently into the gutter. Mrs. Judd was struck in the face with a broken thill of the undertaker's wagon and received a most severe gash on the scalp und right cheek, while Miss White was badly bruised about the head. It was a narrow escape for both ladies. OFFICER COGSWELL'S CASE. The Jury Disagree and a New Trial is Ordered. In the case of fake imprisonment brought against Officer D. F. Cogswell, of the police force, in Justice Sinclair's court, the jury disagreed yesterday, and a new trial was ordered beginning this morning at 9 o'clock. Tho claim of the defense is that when Mr. Cogswell arrested Wm. Murphy, in the pres ence of his friend, Thompson, the in formant, he followed the prisoner and officer to police headquarters, as frequently occurs in street arrests, and when about to consign Murphy to a cell, Clerk Johnson asked: " And is he (Thompson), arrested," Officer Cogswell replied. "No, I have nothing against him." Clerk Johnson testified to these facts, as also did the officer, and further that Thompson was not searched, and in no wise treated as a prisoner. Hence the disa greement of the first jury may be corrected by a second one to-day. 'Romany Rye. This popular spectacular melodrama, with its two car loads of newly painted scenery, will hold the boards at Powers'a next Mon day and Tuesday evenings. A strong play, intensely interesting in story, and beautiful in stage pictures, interspersed by a well balanced company, it should, with the re membrance of the good impression it made here last year, attract good houses. The Humorists To-Night. The intelligence of the city will doubtless turn out en masse to-night, to hear Mark Twain and Geo. W. Cable, who will appear at Powers's Opera House, each giving selec tions from their works. An exchange says of Twain: ' To see Mark Twain is to laugh, and to hear him is to laugh still more. His drollery is phenomenal, alwavs fresh and always en tertaining. His struggle with the German! language and his trying conversation with the young American lady in the hotel dining room at Lucerne were especially funny, while tho ghost story had a startling conclu sion.
