Ihti mahlria Its trpott In advance if le tijwrt of Hhs majotlt? of ttw roMinttttt, tire tnlmTity fmbUstw Its licJfef that the majority will acqittt the Otflrtilwloiwr of I he charges thai have lif en made ajrstnst him. Tb principal objection of the ml- rmtitjr loQwmlfloficrllM!M seemt to be the universal refila-erator ol'jertlott. ami the loalo of ibis (.Paction appears to ma In almnt this way tiu'wiiCnit inteefoiKT of Pension; lie owns stock in and Is the pteMenl of a rompinr known a the T'nlveml ltfflertor Cowpanj ; he will not dlele the nanus of the ilochhohkrs of that com pany ; therefore he U a had man and baa lien unfaithful ami derelict In fie discharge of 1)H official duties. Thl potllkiB Is cnforetsl by recital of the laet that the General' private secre tary Is owner of stock In a subsidiary irfrlgeralor compawy. In ayment of which stock he rendered services in Mead of paring cash. It is admitted that the young man wanted this stock and is glad he has It liasmailenocom plaint and has ashtil nobody to make romplalot for him. Hut It It said the jotwg man ought to be dissatisfied, ard baa been promoted, which aaier tlon ard fact taken together clearly show that lt.t'M has been derelict la rfncUldnty. The minority also complains lint the majority refuiHd to Investigate the re frigerator machine and ascertain whether it would do all that It was ad vcrtbxd to do. The Implication of this objfctlon Is that If the machine is not a coed one, Halm U an locmnpttent ami iinfulihful Comtnitfiontr, but if It U all that it is said to be then lUru Is un unobjectionable ('ommlssianci ' Another compbdnt of the minor ity St thai what Is called the ctnp!tted riles were called Into existence for the purpose of advwe log the pension claims conirollel by Lkmon, the pension agent, and th it the consideration received by llvuw from Lkmon for this favor was the In dorsement by Lkmon- of a note mule by IIavjm for ijao.OOG. Hut the evl desee taken shows clearly that Lkmon was not benefited by the ac tion of Commissioner Halm es tablishing these flies, and that fewer of I.kmok's cases have been expedited by Halm than were expedited by General IIlack, who, It Is admitted, was careful to show no improper expediting favors. The evidence shows also that all peti tion claims attorneys have ihiu.i1 chances on the completed flies; that under the rules relating to those tiles so one claim aent can have any advantage over another, and, more than this, that the establishment of the completed files system has been In the Interest of pension claimants, and has mulled U the adjudication of thou sands of claims that had been "burn; up" in the office, many of them being claims that should have been dlspoeed rf years ago. Nntnltltstandlng this report of the minority of the Haum committee, we maintain still that the charges against the Coraraleeleser have not been suj taintd by the evidence.

In re fni lo the first i barge, the fahs of refrtferahir trk to the employes In the Perttloo Offlce, the report comments wpon the tefnsal of the Commlaslower to prodmre the books ami papers of th cemtrwny notwlthslawllng repeateil efforts to jprnre them. It appears from Jlr. Smyscr's teetlmony, the reportsiys, that other persons not nametl o.fnetl Mock, trrwprctivp of the sweeping as nrance of the CotnmlselnneT that the llg he proflnced contained the names of all the stockholders. It alto rays that the Investigation pro n tiled until near Us close without re vealing the fact tbat a subsidiary corpo ratlou had lecn organired by General ltaiim, ltraillt'y Tanner and five uiher pmons not named, which was to do btislntsa undtr the present comptny's jMstrnt, and dliTercd from It only in name. Itoih il e Comm!!rmer and Hi silky Tanner bad repeatedly stated !n'fore the commitifo tbat no employe of the I'enslon OITlce ownid ilirrtly "or Irdlrcctly any stuck in the Universal Refrigtrator Company, and the exist fnce of the Columbia Universal Re frigerating Company (ihe sub company) was unknown to the minority unit) al most at the close of the Investigation. Continuing the report refers to the rcfual of the majority to Investigate the character of tho refrigerator patents notwithstanding the fact that compe ent witnesses were present to testify Hint the history of the enterprise was full of ctookuluise, that tho cchcmo was Im practicable and worthless, nnd that Tan ner whs it stockholder. It Is nlso asked whether It Is not rensonnblo to suppose that General Ratlin's ofllclal position enabled hi in lo innku the deal by which n member f Congtus was Induced to purthase $20,000 worth of slock. flic report then refers to the second ebargc tho advancement of pension claims for a certain attorney. In consM otntlon of his becoming surely on tho Commissioner's note for $01,000 It alio tefcrs to the evidence touching lr. Lemon's letter, suggesting Immii dlnto adjudication of completed pen sion casta; to Deputy Commissioner Lincoln's adverse report and that of Chief Ilryant, which It says clearly de dues the objection to the "completed tiles" system, and were made while iLcii! existed neither interest nor feeling to bias the judgment os shade the testi mony. The report refers to the c im puted fibs onlcr. which was mide JaotiMy 0 lust, and that, on the foil v Ing dav, I.umm becamu tho surety for Coniinittlnncr Raum fr $112,000 The tfpott concludes as fdlows: "Tl.itu It t ems to us that the Coninils sloticr of Pensions has not nrnprly citicnicd tho dellcato duties and serious rwpnnilbilltles of his great nltice; nor bas be mcapuird up to that high s'aiil aid of patriotic consideration for tho public which should prevail In this Do pattment, adjudlcutlng tho disburse ments of nearly one third of the ontlre revenues of tho Government. The Pen sion Olllce Is altogether too sacred a place for the development of tho per sonal thrift and enterprise manifested in Ibis record. It was established tint the nuilun might properly cat e for tb'e to whom it on can gratitude too sacred for trilling. It is a monument lo the munificence of a grateful people, and its hundteits of employes should be ministers of merry, not slock gambler. Tbat a place thus hallowed should have been used for stock-jobbing or specula tlon, converted into a spawning place fcr corporations and n Btull for barter Ing doubtful patents, Is a reflection upon our Government, a degradation of the public service which wo think cannot be too strongly condemned." The majority report will not be sub mitted until the close of the Invostlga Hon at the next session of Congre). AMUSEMENTS. DruRClaU at the Opera.
