I E'TAELISBKD 1850. I JJ, H. KSTJLL,Editor and Proprietor, j PAN ELECTRIC REPORTS. THREE DISTINCT PAPERS TO RE SUBMITTED. Ho One of Them Signed by the Btqulllte Majority to Bring Them Before the House—Republicans, of Course, Mafce Harm Out of Every Action of the At torney General. Washington, June 29. —Three docu ments in the nature of reports will be pre sented to the House by the Pan Electric ■Telephone Committee, but ae neither will [be signed by a majority of the committee, . jobnicaily speaking, there will be no “re- W ret! beJore the House for action. The dtwwn up by the chairman will be ■signed by himself and Messrs. Oates. Eden and Hall, all Democrats. Mr. Ran ney has socured the signatures of Messrs. Millard, Hatiback and Motfatt, all Repub licans, to his report, while Mr. Hale, Democrat, has presented his views in an Individual report. Chairman Boyle’s re port will aot be made public before Thurs day. The report signed by the Republican members was given out to-day. It is a Tery long document, and treated the evi dence in great detail, alter which it said: Taking all these things together, it does not admit of doubt that the Solicitor General acting as Attorney General. * us, by some meaus, led to grant this application without The usual reference or inquiry, without any 91-elence-of competent examination, with nu sxampied speed, and iu violation of the prac tise of the department. In an ordinary case uch action would be ncld to be positive proof if fraud—at least, proof of gross negligence, vhich, in a person of Ins position, iseqtuvu ent to fraud. There is no reason why that ulc should not be applied here. CHARGES OF CORRUPTION. It cannot lie forgotten that this request, ranted in so extraordinary and so unbecora lg a manner,was a request in which the head f the Bcoariment of .Justice and a Senator f the United States, who came in person to 20 Solicitor General to inquire about it, and “ temingly urged speed, and oilier goveru icut oflicials for two years had, and liad inoiisly had, a vast pecuniary interest. Upon .-roese facts, no one of which can be disputed, ' 1> jury would hesitate. It is enough. Iwever, to say that it cannot be tolerat. and _ lat the business of the government cun be so K Inducted. Ii cannot escape observation tiial jAaator Harr sand Casey Young acted just JLsien would act if already assured of what asked, and that tin-conduct of Hie General is most easily accounted ■ D the assiiniptnm that he understood the ijHjtor in advance and hail predetermined course of action. GAULANII ATTAKCRI). |3Bho report then recars to the subject of opinion furnished by the Attorney JHneral. It charges that it was written IVlh a view to deceive the people in the tpithwest, and says that it was a shrewd I fvr that the people so believed, but he, Attorney Geueral, did not. Tne la >rt goes on: j gf abest that cun be said of him is that lie 5„.. Ipieelf to this scheme because lie, got his fa <* lor nothing.

J evidence is more aggressive, however, I SI 1 pie facts, according to the ordinary rules tfl Iv, are direct ul positive, and, unless IWi rolled, are conclusive proof that all ex ■He e government action, at least, was affect ■n by the iutlnence of those interests or ■KuowTedge of them. |f Of the results of the hearing before the ■Seoreiary of the Interior, the report ■holds that the Secretary’s conclusion was Hon wise, and that it did lint justify the Hict-ion of the Department of Justice. He Knight have awaited the conclusion of the Blew Orleans suit, anil not have taken the step he did. He was, how- out a friendly adviser to the Depart ■|n-m of Justice, and the responsibility iKistsnpon the head of that department. iH'he report continues: \Ufl it Plain that the views of the Secretary \Vere >" excu.-e and not bis reliance.

Touching the formation of the Pan Electric Company, tbe evidence shows conclusively, says Mr. Hale’s re port, that it was purely a speculative ad venture, and there is no evidence to be found tending to prove that tho gentle men connected with Mr. Rogers ever an ticipated or intended that their otHcial positions would or should be used in any way to effect legislation or otherwise to further advance their enterprise. THE MONEY PAID IN. The amount of money to be paid in was comparatively small as provided in the agreement, but the contingent expenses and liabilities to accrue might have be come very heavy. It is not believed that the immense mass of testimony will show that there was anything in the object, motive or intent of any of tbe gentlemen which was in any sense immoral, dishon est or inconsistent with the duties of public men or citizens. As to tbe opinion ot Attorney General Garland, it is befd by Mr. Hale that it was like that ot any other attorney em ployed by an individual. It does not ap pear that it was intended to further the sales of stock without disclosing his rela tions to the company, nor that any per son was deceived or misled by it. DISMISSAL OF THE SUIT. The report liuds that the President’s order dismissing the iMemphis suit was eminently proper-but at the same time it is said thatthere is noevidence even tend ing to show that the Solicitor General was actuated by any improper or unworthy motives, even if it be held that be was mistaken as to some of the legal questions involved. His mistake in ordering the suit without reference to the Interior Department was one which the ablest ami most conscientious oflicials might make and doubtless have made. As to the Attorney General’s con nection with tbe suit, the report finds that the evidence is overwhelming and oonolusive in showing that he had nothing whatever do with it. The fact that he ignored the application of Dr. Rogers for a~position in the Dtpartment of Justice may account in part for the doctor’s sub sequent and present hostility to the At torney General. A TOTAL FAILURE. The attempt to connect him with the proposed legislation seems to have totally failed, and the effort to have J. Harris Rogers appointed House Electrician amounted to nothing, being no doulit the usual effort made by public men to se cure positions for parties with whom they are on friendly terms, but who turu out >o be unworthy. As to the conclusions reached by the Department of the Inte rior , which formed tne basis of the order for the Columbus suit, the report bolds that it would seem impertinent, and not within the scope of the i u vestigation for the comtmUee to express any opinion. But the public derndnd should be very strong and emphatic and public interests very great to justify the institution of a suit likely to cost so large a sum, especially when the results are attended with so much uncertainty, and when it appears that tbe application was made by rival companies in tho absence of any general public interest. NOT SECURED AGAINST THE COSTS. it is also remarked that the government has not been secured against tbe costs by the petitioners, as is customary in such suits. Casey Young is found to huve acted as a private citizen, and is not amenable to Investigation, and Senator Vest’s conduct has been found to be lion orable and manly throughout. In con clusion, tbe report finds that no evidence has been produced showing that any of tue companies or their employes have at tempted to influenoe tbe press. Dr. Rog ers’ proffer of stock to Messrs. Carlisle, Randall and Beach is characterized as improper under the circumstances. THOMPSON’S NEW OIEIOK. Assistant Secretary of J.lie Treasury Smith’s Place to be Taken. Washington, June 29.—William E. Smith, Assistant Secretary of tho Treas ury, has tendered his resignation to the President, to take effect July next, in order to accept the position of solicitor tor the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Mani toba Railroad Company, with headquar ters at Bt.

WEDNESDAY. JUNE 30. 1886. FAIRNESS OF THE PRESS. MR. POWDEUIiY EXPLAINS SOME MISSTATEMENTS. lucorrect Special Matter Sent Out About the Cleveland Convention Mistaken for the Regular Ruporte—The A*ho ciatcrt Frew to be Rig Official Reporter In the future. New York, June 29.—500n after tho Cleveland convention of the Knights of Labor there were published in several pa pers what purported to be interviews with .Mr. Powderly, in which he was re ported as commenting iu severe terms on the Associated l’ress reports of the con vention, and as holding Jay Gould re sponsible for them. As the reports did not contain any of the objectionable things of which Mr.Powderly complained and it was evident that his mind was con tused between what was supplied to pa pers by the Associated Press and by spe cial correspondents, an opportunity was given to him to obtain correct in formation on the suhjeot.JWitti this explanation the following correspondence will be made clear: Office New Yoke AssocTthKep I’rkxsTl Nkw Yoke, June fb.tsso. i Hr. T. Y. Porßiletly, Grand JfiuUr Work man. etc. : Dkar.Sik—l enclose what puriHirls to be a telegraphic disistich troin Scranton, Pa., which was published in yesterday’s Now York World. A similMr ilispateh, 1 a’ui told, ap- I•eared iu the New York Tribune of the same dale. Itis headed, as you see, "Mr. Powderly at Home,” and purports to give a statement from your lips. In this you are represented as saying most emphatically that the As-o ciated Press lost no opportunity to malign you, and that instructions concerning you were sent out by the Associated Proas at tno instance of Jay Gould, and agents were or dered to misrepresent you. Will you be kind enough to inform tne if you are correctly quoted in this dispatch? And if so, will you be good enough to state to what Associated Press you reler? And, also, if you refer to our association, upon wbat evidence you base these assertion-? I had supposed that every well-informed person in tbe coun try knew that ihe Associated Press and Jay Gould represented oppo-ing interests, that are so strongly antagonistic that they would not be likely to act in harmony on any sub ject: and certainly neither would do any thing whatever upon the dictation of tbe other. I also supposed that it was beyond dispute that during the labor troubles of the last two or three months the agents of the Associated Press, acting under the directions of the joint Kxccui ive Commit tee, have given your expressed views an 1 all the statements which you and your associates wished to have made public, the fullest, freest and widest circulation without regard to the cost of such transmission, and that it tbe agents ami reporters hail erred at all it was an excess of liberality in presenting lo the public vour side of the question exactly as you wished. With these facts before me I am unable to account .or tne dispatch in question, and beg to have your explanation of'its extraordinary statements. Yours, truly, DavipM. Stone. President New York Associated Press. The reply of Mr. l’owderly is as fol lows: Scranton, Pa j.June 28,1850. David V. Stone , President Htw York Awaited Pre.es: , Dear Sir—ln tbe elifrping which you inetose to me the language 1- that of the re ntier. I rarely speak of self to newspaper men, yet thqy quote me as using the personal pronoun when talking of the Knights of La bor. I spoke of the press generally, and not of tbe Associated Press, as represented in tbe article yon send me. When 1 see papers that are served by tlie Associated Press with col umns ot matter in r dation to Joe convention and the probable effect of the same on myself depicted iu heightened colors, I cannot be blamed for thinking that tbe Associated Press has misrepresented matters so far as the con vention is concerned, in Ihccoluinnswhere I always look for Associated Press news I Hod reports of transactions which I know never took place at the Cleveland convention. I have no means ot knowing whether these dis patches are specialw not, since they are all displayed in the same column Our papers had no special correspondents at Cleveland and they are served by the Associated Press with the news of the day. I lind that the dis patches sent to them from Cleveland are in accurate, not only inaccurate, hut well calcu lated to hold me up I • ridicule as being ireaied with anything but respect by the convention. Who to blame tor this l do not know. J am told that the special and associ ated dispatched were primed together in many of the papers. It that is true then I cannot tell winch is correct, and viue versa. I was waited on by ayouagman when at Cleve land, who handed me a card bearing the name “A. B. Peters ” f have it before me now. He said he represented the Associate t Press. I saw him hut once. He never carue lo me the second lime. It was at niy request that the convent ion appointed a iwess com mittee of live to give out the news of eacbdav. I had no Umo io spare in tne evenings .-.id could not give any new# to the prees iu per son. This, I understand, gave offense to some of the representatives of the press who wished to interview me each day. I would gladly hsvc given the news to them had t the time, but at a convention 1 am always very busy and canool spare any tune for anything but the work in hand. In your letter you ask: “Will you state to what Associated Press you refer?' 1 My an swer to that is couiained iu the first para graph of this letter. X referred only to the press, and not to the Associated Press in par ticular. f have always found ihe Asso ciated Press of New York and Philadelphia tube very fair—not only fair, but kind tome personally.

WHU’K HOIJSK EXI’LNSKS. A Clause in the Sundry Civil Bill Gives ltise to Debate. W AsniNQTON, June 29.—The House to day went into ooiumUtee of the whole, with Mr. Reagan in the chair, on the sun dry civil bill. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, moved to Increase from fDO.fiOO to $200,000 the appropriation for protecting public lands Irotn fraudulent entry. Alter a long debate, in which the animosity on the Republican side against Land Com missioner Sparks again came promiscu ously to the front, Mr. Springer withdrew hts amendment, borne time was spent also in a dispute between Mr. Weaver of lowa and Mr. Perkins of Kansas, which afforded the House considerable amusement aud which became eo warm that both gentlemen were miking at once. Tile question at issue was as to the posi tion which each gentleman bore to the occupation ot public lands and tbe cattle syndicate. Tbe Oklahoma boomers and . the gentlemen themselves cart e In for a fair measure of abuse. Mr. Herbert, of Alabama, criticized tbe publications ot the geological survey, and endeavored to have the appropriation for that bureau slightly reduced and some restriction placed upon its expendi ture, but no changes were mado in these sections of the bill. WHITE HOUSE FURNITURE. Mr. Hepburn, of lowa, criticised the items appropriating an aggregate of about $29,000 for new furniture for the Execu tive Mansion, for the care of the green houses at the White House, and for gen eral incidental expenses. Whut, be asked, could the present head of the administra tion, wedded us be was to Jeffersonian simplicity, want with $29,000 tor furni ture and flowers? The I’resident would not tolerate such useless ex penditures. It was known that when he nerved himself to the thank less duty ot vetoing tbe pension bills oi sixty destitute soldiers or widows, he was cobstrsifidirby hi* official oath, con strained by bis official duly, and forced by Jeffersonian simplicity, 'and yet those pension bills aggregated loss than $7,000, oue-fourtii of the sum which this commit •e was trying to force upon him to ex pend for furniture and flowers. Mr. Randall remarked that the bill appropriated $16,000 tor repairs and furniture for the Executive Mansion, while iu 1883 $20,000, and in 1881 $25,000 bad been appropriated for like purpose, so that the committee was in the line of Jeffersonian simplicity. Next year, per haps, it would do better, if tbe committee should remember that there was a very able housekeeper at the White House now. [Laughter and applause.] l’endiug further action the committee rose. MONEYI’OiITHE DEPARTMENTS The Senate Resins Consideration of the iicgislative Hill. Washington, June 29.—The Secate to day took up tbelegislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill. After gen eral debate the bHI went over without ac tion. Mr. Allison gave notice that he would ask the Senate to finish the‘legislative bill to morrow. Mr. l’!unibin<|uired whether, if that were the case, it would obviate the necessity of joint resolution to continue appropriations temporarily. Mr. Allison thought not. The two bouses would he obliged to-morrow to puss a joint resolution extending the appropriations of the current year until the legislative bill, naval ap propriation hill, Hundrvoivil hill, and Dis trict of Columbia appropriation bills should become laws. Mr. Kdmunds inquired when the legis lative hill hud reached the Senate from the House. Mr. Allison—On Jana 17. Mr. Edmunds—Six months after the Senate met and within seventeen days of ’be time when the annual appropriations ran out. Mr. Allison—Yes. The most important appropriation lulls wore not sent here un til the month ol June, and whatever re sporisibility there is lor having to pass the joint resolution extending appropria tions does not reaton the Senate. The Senate, at 6:10 o’clock, adjourned. (>|ieii Executive Sewn inns. Washington, Juno 29.— 1n the Senate to-day Mr. Muudcrapn presented a letter received by him from Senator Morrill,who is absent on account of illness, stating that he had prepared some remarks on : the subject of open executive sessions which lie would like to have read when Uie question comes up to-morrow.

One Train’s .Derailing the Only Violent. Demount ration of the Day—Nine Trains Started Ont Under the Protec tion of Armed Parties Along the Tracks -Emissaries Sent to Toledo. Chicago, Juuo 29.— Tbe 1-ake Shore Railroad Company began operations at 8 o’elock this morning, at that hour 250 po lice and Pinkerton men, the latter armed as on yesterday with Winchester rifles, took possession ot tbe Forty-third street switching yards. 8y 9 o-’olpek two long freight trains had been made up and started south carry ing armed gnards, but met with no molestation. At 10fi)8o’clock a Pinkertou squad |aeooiu panted a switch engine to the Union stock yards to get. a train of live stock. John Odur, a prominent member of the Switchmen’s Mutual Association says: “Our association has nothing to do with this strike, it did not inspire it, has no sympathy tor it, and is opposed to it. There ipajr lie some members of the asso ciation amung the strikers, but they are acting for themsolves apd not by the ad vice or sanction of tbe association.” SENDING OUT TRAINS. At noon traius were being made up at both Forty-third street and tbe Engle wood yards, and were being sent out as usual. Each train was being guarded by ten or twelve Pinkerton men, who were armed with Winchesters.
