TH public hate already seen the
fmwtifnl article written for the
' OiftiAvquen Magstlne" by Mr. Head
a few ycsiP Ago, ami we now ash. at ten -tlcn
to a lrprfnt of srme remarks of his
maifc tir-on the floor of the House dur
ing the second ekm of the Forty
ilxth Congress. They will lie fouml In
the Oengtrtttonal lietoni of January
SS, 1880, and run ae follows:
"Mr. Chairman, If It was my purpose
to icnly to the gentleman who hat just
taken his seat, it teems to lite that It
wtwM be a suitable ami proper reply to
My to him that the constitutions! Wen
of a qnorotn Is not the pretence of a
majority of the members of the Ilmise,
1MI a majority of the members present
ami patMcipaiiBg in the mist a cm ol tHe
Home. It is not the visible presence of
members, but their judgments ami their
votes, that the Constitution calls for.
'I prefer, however. In the short time
which I have, to discuss this (iiiestton
open a different basis. This privilege
which the (llepublican) minority of the
House at the last session availed itself
of is a prlvileae which every
minority has availed Itself of since
the foundation of this Government.
What is the practical upshot of
the pretest practice? It is thai the
members of the minority of this House
upon steal occasions demand that every
bill which is patent shall receive the
absolute vote of a majority of the mem
tiers dieted. They do this In the face
aid eye of the country. If they de
mand upon any frivolous occasion that
there shall be such an extraordinary
ote as that, they do It subject to the
ttbsuif of the people of this land. This
rmtlce has hitherto kept this House In
jr ptr condition upon the subject, so
that tbrre ha been no Improper lot
j dine of the public business.
"It i u nilualU prMUn for th
tnuntry that th minority aA.tU hut th
tipkt by thtt $jttriioritinry mod of
jinxuiing to eaU th attention of th
feaafrjr to intiitnrtM irhith a party in
mwmtvf ntttiht4$ and of party felling
u tntltaroring to tnfore upon th
ritittn of this land. Ami ft works
equally well with refard to all parties,
for all parties have their times when
tlty seed to be cheeked, so (bat they
may receive the opinions of the people
who are their constituents ami who lire
Interested la the results of their legis
lation. I say, that as a practical matter,
the results hitherto throughout all our
history have justified the construction
which those upon this side of the House
have put upon the matter, ami which
lisslein put equally by member of
the etiici side In times past."
TMS te a very large contract Mr. lie!
1 aa taken that of vindicating his posi
tion of today by proving himself to
have been false ami I a since re on yester.
day. We should say, however, that
be U quite capable of doing it, sail that
tbo country will fiad no great tllflieulty
In nallsing that Iteed Is thoroughly
true to himself at every stage of the

whose shop In San Fraerlco wis
known s "Montgomery Baths," and
the chair that Jack Hungcrford used is
prdnted out to the CMStonTets of the
rtprrco barber shoo to this day. Mr.
Ctprtco mtvaered W0 In gold to nf

members of the I ami I y, being tauzht

daughters. They lived with their ben
e factors six or "even years.
In 1805 HnAgerforu opened a barber
shop on his own account at Mokeinmne
Illlf, Cal.. and I-ouiie, who was then
about 19 years old, acted as her father's
housekeeper they having one room In
the rear of the shop. He was propri

"busted" up in business During this
peiieid a Dr. HryanL who kept a small
drug slore at Nevada City, about 100
miles from Mokeinmne Hill, paid at
tention to Louise, and she was married
to him after shott courtship. Dr.
Hryant. beine a man of dieolute habits,
died two or three years afterward of de
lirium tremens, leaving Mrs Drynnt no
means of support for herself and daugh
ter Eva, now the Princess Colonna.
Her father's failure in business and her
husband's death compelled her to seek
service in the family of J. W. Walker,
brother of the lale ex Governor Walker
of Virginia, and there she met for the
first time J. W. Mackay, superin
tendent of the IJullion mine at Virginia
city, ffev. Louise Hryant, for a brief
time previous to her going Into the
service of Mr. Walker, had tried a bond
at keeping a boarding-house for the

and could provide her a home, such as
the minors used lu those days, simply n
cabin of two rooms. So he courted ami

tLc meantime had gone back to his
former "boss" and procured employ
ment and helped to pay the youngest
dnughlor's board. Mrs. Mackay was
cook and general housekeeper nnd
laundrywoman, and helped cntorlain
nor uusimnu'8 co workers In tbo mlnos.
Mr. Mackttv soon after attained great
wealth, and Mrs. Mackay and her sister
had tbo advantage of a good common

fluently Italian and French, through
the association of the Cipriuo family,

Ifo blame Is attached to the driver ami

Some of the neighbors were inclined
to be Indignant, but wiser council pre
vailed when It wrs shown that the Wry

A Snlmlllnff ttnllnn.
An Italian with a very glib tongua
has been victimizing the South Wash
ington colored people. He had a valti
able cbromo with a gilt frame that he
would show as a sample, ami represent
that upon the payment of fifty cents ia
advance and fifty cents when the pic
ture was delivered they would lmve a
bargain. In a number of instance! the
advance money demanded was ptld, but
the picture never came.
Last night the Italian, who gave tbe
name of Sylvester Geovswnatti, was ar
rested and locked up ftt the Fourth Pre
cinct station.
Judge JIHItr, after listening to the
testimony, dismissed the cao ngatnst
the Italian. Jle Mid that it wai not
sufficient to hold him on.
Declined the UfTer,
Sir. Thomas S. Hodson of JIarylnnd
had an interview ywterday with At
torncy General Sillier, who offered him
the position of Assistant Attorney of
the United Stales In tho Court of
Claims, to represent tho Department ot
Justices. Mr. Hodson W3s, however,
compelled to decline tho offer.
If You
