Another Georgian au Applicant for In temt to Commerce Coimnlft*ion Hon • rs—Th* Hepurf of the Labor Inreiti tr'UK Cos min it too Aimotir Heady—No Hop© for KamJiiil’A Tariff Fraud, Washington, Feb. B.—Gen. Jackson, Mr. Hull anil Cos!. Screven, of tbe Savan nah Harbor Committee, arrived to-day. Mr. Norwood introduced them to Chairman McMillan, of the Senate Commerce Committee, ami tbe latter said that tbe committee bad determine! to give them a Drief hearing upon tbe proposed increase in tbe Savannah harbor appropriation on Satur day next. Mr. Norwood will attend the bearing. Samuel Barrett, of Washington, is tbe latest Georgian mentioned for a place on tbe Interstate Commerce Commission. l'he semi-official announcement to. niglit that tbe President will sign tbe interstate commerce bill to-morrow quickens tbe efforts of the candidates for the cominissionerships provided tor by the bill. There is good reason to be lieve that, none of the candidates will be appointed. Janies F. Hudson, ot Pittsburg, is tbs only man mentioned whose chances are considered good. CURTIN’S I.ABOR COMMITTEE. Chairman Curtin says that he nas al most finished tbe report ot the House Committee on Labor Strikes upon its in vestigation ot last session. He has en tirely finished the review of the strikes of 188a and partially finished the review of the strikes of 1886. The committee has not agreed upon any recommendations of legislation, because they want to see first what the President will do with the inter state commerce bill. In the event that lie signs it, he will [partially obviate the necessity lor any legislation regulating •he relations between the railways and their employes, because tbe differences between them, Chairman Curtin thinks, would bo or at least could be passed upon by the Intel state Commerce Commission. RANDALL’S REVENUE SHAM. Mr. Ilaudall having written Speaker Carlisle a letter inclosing him a copy of his applejack tariff bill, and asking him whether he and his friends would be willing to go into committee of tbe wnole mid endeavoi to Irame a bill reducing the revenue on the Randall bill as a basis, Speaker Carlisle has prepared a long re ply which he will send to Mr. Randall to morrow. In it be will say that of course he and his triends are ready at any time to go into committee of t lie wbole to frame a bil| reducing the revenue, and that they have already made a determined effort to do just that thn g this ses s.on. He then proceeds to show, by a careful contrast between the liandall bill and tbe Morrison bill, that the latter and not the former is the true basis for a proper reduction of the revenue. He shows by*acareful analysis that as a mat ter of tact tue liandall bill rather in creases than reduces the customs reve nue and thatits free list is a sham, in short he sets forth the position ol the rev enue reformers in plain terms. They are ready now, as they have oeeii ev r since the beginning of the Congress, to vote for any measure that contemplates real revenue reform and reduction, and they are equally ready to oppose any attempts to mist a fraud on the, public such as Mr. liandall is now making. It is now quite apparent that nothing can be done by this Congress in the direction of reducing the revenue, and the prospect of au extra session of the next Congress is greater than ever. TOBACCO TAXATION. It was reported to-day that Speaker Carlisle had promised to recognise Rep resentative William D. Kelley on .Monday next to move the passage.under a suspen sion of the rules, of a bill repealing the tax on tobacco. Speaker Carlisle said this evening that he had made no such promise. Asa matter olvlaot, a earetul canvass of tue House on this very ques tion made last week shows that such a motion could not command tbe necessary two-thirds majority, it would receive about 170 votes. There are over 103, Democrats and forty Republicans who will not vote for any internal reve nue reduction scheme. NKAV NAVAL Vi-.SSHLS. The Htib-Conmiittee Gratis a Bill Providing for Construction. Washington, FSb. 3. —Asa result of the consideration of various bills looking to tbe construction oi new naval vessels, the sub-committee of tbe House Commit teoon Naval Affairs, has (Halted a bill, which will belaid before tbe full commit tee to-morrow, providing for tbe construc tion ot two steel cruisers of 4,000 tons bin den, ot the Newark type, at a cost ex - clusive ot armamenl of not more than $1,300,000 each, to be equipped with the best type ot modern englm-s, boiler and machinery; four sleet gunboats of 1,700 tons displacement, pat terned after gunboat “No. l,” ai a cost exclusive of armor of not more than $.135,000 eneb; one cruising so o! torpedo boat of not more than 150 nor less than 125 feet in length, to have a maxi mum speed of not loss than t-wonty-four knots per hour (tested over the govern-j ment knot course), and capable ot steam- j tng at the rate of twenty knots an hour tor six consecutive hours wil b armamenl sad coal tor sea service, to cost not more than *1,000,000, and to be completed within twelve months alter the signing of the contract.

The BUI Fixing a Limit of Time Soon to be Discussed, Washington, Feb. 3.—ln the Senate to-day the credentials of Senator Whit tborue, showing his election by the Leg islature of Tennessee for the unexpired term ending March 4 next, were pre sented, and he took the oath of office on them. Up to this time he had held his seat under tbe Governor’s appointment. limitation ok pension applications. The resolution offered last session by Mr. Ingalls to discharge tbe Committee on Pensions from lurtber consideration of the bill removing tbe limitation on appli cations for arrears of pensions was taken up and Mr. Ingalls stated that bis object was to have the bill brought, before tbe Senate for action. The resolution was agreed to by a vote of 27 yeas to 26 nays. Mr. Ingalls stated that as the bill was one of very great consequence he would not ask the Senate to vote on it instanter. He gave notice, however, that early next week he would move that 'he Senate proceed to its consideration. The bill was placed on the calendar. CONGRESSMEN AND RAILROADS. At 2 o’clock the Senate proceeded to consideration of the bill to prohibit mem bers of Congress troin acting as attorneys oremployes for subsidized railroad com panies. Mr. Evarts spoke at length in opposition to the bill. Mr. Evarts con cluded his speech at 4:15 o’clock, and then, on motion of Mr. Hoar, the Senate went into secret session and at 4:45 o’clock adjourned. \V bile the doors were still closed Mr. Call introduced a resolu tion that for the remainder of the session the Senate meet daily at 11 o’clock and with an hour’s recess sit till 9. it was laid over without action. IN THE HOUSE. In the House to-day Mr. Holman, of In diana, from tbe Committee on Appropria tions. reported tbe legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill. It Was referred to committee of tbe whole, Mr. Tucker, troiu tbe Commit tee on Ju diciary, reported back tbe Senate bill ex tending tbe time lor tiling French spolia tion claims, it was referred to tbe House calendar. Mr. Rogers, from the same committee, reported adversely the bill to enable peo ple to name their postmasters. It was laid on fbo table, Tue House adjourned at 4:45 o’clock. # NO CLERKS FOB CONGRESSMEN. THe House Tables the Bill on ihe Ground of Economy. Washington, Feb. 3.—ln the House in tbe morning hour to-day Mr. Oates, of Alabama, on behalf of the Committee on Revision of Laws, called up the bill au thorizing tbe appointment and prescrib ing the compensation of clerks to Sena tors and Representatives who are not chairmen of committees. Mr. Caldwell, of Tennessee, opposed the bill. 11 e said no Democrat was au thorized to vote for this increased com pensation, for it was nothing more or less than that. The platform upon which the Democratic party had come into power was “retrenchment and reform.” NOT RETRENCHMENT. Was it retrenchment to add 320 persons to the list ot office-holders I Was it re form to reach out and grab patronage? He saw in the proposition disaster to the members and tbe grave of the Democratic party. If there was any veto thunder left in tho president he would bury this bill under a trip hammer veto rather than bury himself and his party by signing it. Mr. Dougherty, of Florida, favored the proposition, but thought it should be amended so as not to take effect until tbe Fitty-first Congiess. Mr. Turner, of Georgia, admitted that the labors of members ot Congress were arduous, difficult and embarrassing, but thought It, hardly consistent with the pro fessions of the Democratic party that it should commit itself to a measure in tended merely to increase the allowance of members. Mr, Eden, of Illinois, moved to lay tbe bill on the table, and the motion was agreed to by a vote of 141 to 105. CIVIL SERVICE REFORM. Constitutionality of the Law Creat ing the Cominissiou Attacked. Washington. Feb. 3 Something like a sensation was caused in tho District Su preme Court in the general term here to day by the prehfentation ot a petition at tacking tbe Civil Service Commission, and asserting unconstitutioiiality of the law by virtue of wbicn it exists.’ Tbe pa per tg headed “A petition ot rights, by .Morris S. Miller, of Aider Creek, Oneida county, N. Y., lor redress in a case whore A. U. Edgerton, J. H. Otierly and Charles Lyman, Commissioners, and others, are trespassers upon his civil and political rights and privileges by exercising unlawful ‘authority and powers.” The petitioner asks “for an or der or judgment restraining, enjoining and prohibiting the Commissioners and any and all persons from exercising the illegal and unconstitutional power set forth, and for suoh order ami further re dress as the court shall deem meet to vin dicate the liberties ol the petitioner ami which will adjudge, determine aud de dare that the people of the United States are tiot subjects but sovereign eiuaens. and that ihe government is in substance as well us in form a republic.” A REGULAR BOOK. The petition forms a printed volume of ninety-four pages, mostot which are de voted to a declaration that tbe civil ser vice law is unconstitutional, because it oonfers on a board created by ihe legis lative branch ol the government powers ol selection and appointment tooffieeex pressly reserved to the President by the constitution. Various other reasons are also set out in ihe paper. It is bcllevod that this proceeding Is first taken with a view to testing the legality of the com mission’s existence. After the petition had been presented, the court stated that the mutter came up ta such shape that it would be necessary to consider whether it should be taken up directly upon tbe basis of the petition or be allowed to come up on certification from the lower court. Postal Appropriations. Washington, Feh. 3.—The post office appropriation hill was reported by the Senate Committee on Appropriations to ! day. Tho committee made but two amendments. Toe first was XL Frye’s proposition for the ioreign mail service, so changed as to appropriate *5.000,006 for the carriage ot the mulls to Brazil, the Argentine Republic, Uruguay and Para guay. The contracts for this service are made subject to the approval of Congress. The other amendment gives authority to nut letter boxes in buildings winch are | freely opened lo the public during busi ness hours, modifying to that extent tho - House provision limiting the authority oi 1 the department iu tula respect. ' SAVANNAH, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY I. 1887. Dll. M’GIYXX DEFIANT. RIGHT OF THE CHI’ It OH TO PUN ISH HIM DEMKI). lll* DoctrlDrs Defended hm ho Junt that tlie Propaganda Would Not Dare Con* clHiin i Uhhj—Tii Author* of ilie ‘*lll - Cincinnati Paatoral Letter Among Thn (to Hounding Him. iNew York, Feb. 3.—Henry George’s paper, the Standard, for Saturday, con tains the long looked for eiatement of Dr. McGlynn. Tue article makes six columns, and to all intents and purposes seems to agree with the statement re cently published by Archbishop Corrigan. Regarding, however, the letter from Car dinal Simeoni of four years ago, Dr. McGlyun says: Itja absolutely false, although stated by Archbishop Corrigan on authority of Cardi nal McCloskey, that I recognized my errors and professed to bes rry for them. On the contrary, in mv interview with Cardinal McClo>key I reaillrmed the doctrine and ox plained it and defended it from misunder standing and misapprehensions* I voluntarily promised to abstain from making land league speeches, not because I acknowledged ttie right of any one to forbid rue, but because I knew too well the power of my ecclesiastical superiors to impair and almost destroy my usefulness in the ministry of Christ’s church to which 1 had consecrated my life. CHAMPIONING THE STARTING. In reference to another letter from Car dinal Simeoni, dated in May, 18-S3, Dr. McGlyun wrote to Cardinal McOloskey, saying: 1 regret very much that the Cardinal Pre fect has found new cause for displeasure in the report in some Huston journal. 'I he meet ing must have been that held in tins city in February last, which was not a land league meeting, such as I had voluntarily promised you not to ai tend, but. was for the relief of the people suffering from famine in Ireland, and was held by a union of the Irish societies under the name of the Irish Confederation of Amer ica. I tiud in the Journal au account of send ing money raised at that meeting with a letter of Bishop Nultv, showing how it was used to relieve the in Ireland, l enclose tins an ice, and r beg you to consider it part of this letter. AN ALLUSION TO INJUSTICE. In speaking for the relief of distress I al luded to the injustice which is the cause of it, and urged the duty of redressing such injus tice. In this I thought 1 was but favoring that demand for justice to Ireland which was made by Mr. O’Counoil and the Bishops and priests of Ireland, and by many of our own, especially Archbishop Hughes, and which has been, I think, commonplace in St. Patrick’s day sermons. 1 shall henceforth refuse t<> take part in any such meeting, even though it be for charitable objects. To the ap parent desire of the Cardinal Prefect, I shall cause to be published in the Catholic .Journal a statement that will show that I condemn any report or the interpretation of my words contrary to the doctrines of the Catholic churen. SOME OF HIS DETRACTORS. The follow 1 dadditional extracts from the statement indicates its tone and tenor. Dr. McGlyun says: , 1 would state that among those who de nounced me to Borne for my Land i eague speeches were Bishopa Gilmore, ot Cleveland, and Chattard, of ludiauupolis. Tin? former the author, and the latter the apologist of the famous or infamous Cincinnati pastoral letter which was in great measure a deliberate thesis against Thomas Jefferson’s declaration of independence. Other Bishops, as oppor tunity offered, did not fail to maifest their intolerance. * * * * * The only political gathering that I can ro meinner at which I spoke shortly before the date of A rchhishop Corrigan’s letter of Aug. 21, was the great labor demonstration on July 6in Union square 111 favor of Messrs. Glad stone and Parnell during the Parliamentary election. I confess it did notoccur to me that anyone would, at that late day, hold me bound by the voluntary promise I had made three or four years before, since Pome itself had been forced to change its attitude toward the Irish question, and since even Archbishop Corrigan Had at lust deemed it politic no longer to oppose the movement in aid of the laud of his parents. THK LETTSR TO CORRIGAN. Following is the letter complete in reply to the summons from Koine, and which has been said to be incomplete as published by Archbishop Corrigan: M< Ht, Jiecertnd and l>e<ir Arehhi&hop; I find that I shall not be able to go to Home. There are several personal reasons, any one of winch must he sutLicienl. 1 have had reason to feel concerned about my health for some time, and niv physician orders me not to undertake the journey (here follow other reasons). You have not tolcl me why I am summoned to Koine. Jjut 1 can gatiier from your telegram to the Tribune newspaper that it io because 1 am an advocate of cerium doctrines about the ownership of land This 1 can gather from your letter to me just before you procured the telegram from Home. You said in that letter that the result would have been more satis factory if in my card to the Tribune 1 hail re tracted the latter portion of the Tribune re port in which I had been made to reaffirm said doctrines about land. htkongYy reaffirmed. As I cannot go to Rome to give an account of my doctrine about land 1 would say that 1 have made it clear in speeches, in reported interviews and in published articles and 1 r* pent It here; I have taught and I shall con-* tinue to teach, in speeches and writings, as long as I live,that land is rightfully the prop erty of the people in common, and that, priv ate ownership of laud is again.it natural jus tice. no matter by wlmt civil or ecclesiastic*! laws it inay be sanctioned, and 1 would bring about inslantlv, it 1 could, such a change of the laws all the world over as would confis cate private proper tv in land without one penny of compensation to the miscalled ow ners. Ur. McGlynn continues as follows: The letter of Cardiual Simoom, which the Archbishop describes as a most “kind and I conciliatory one,” mingles w ith some flattery I severe reproaches for m\ former utterances for the Land League, and for my i übllo ad hesion to ilie dociriuesof llenrv George, doc trines which 1 know have never been and cannot be condemned by the Holy .See in its i highest utterance as a supreme irihunal for the decision of doctrinal •jue.dloim, and yet [ Indore 1 could hate reasoua uy been expected to stun for Kouu i am censured for delay, and am practically told that my case is al ready prejudge 1 iu Rome n> it his been most effectually prejudged in New York by my suspension from priestly functions and my sudden expulsion from my church and home. NUT FRIGHTENED. Cardinal Siuieom ends his letter with a threat that If I should fall to go he would be placed uuder the painful necessity of having recourse t o‘measures and of adopting provi sions w Inch surely would be unpleasant fur me! These threats of the Cardinal might have ha*! more weight with me if the un pleasant tilings which he threatens had not already been inflicted on rnc. it is bard to imagine what other or more unpleasant thing he could devise. The doctor concludes with those words: Oue sufficient answer to all this strange ur gency baa already been given, but I now have further r,o av: Reaffirming what I said n, my letter to tho Archhishop.seut by the hand of Henry George, that in hcojmmg a priest 1 did not evudo duties nor surrender the rights of a man and citizen. uroirr TO PUNISH DENIED. I deny the right of Bishop. Propaganda or Pope to puandi me lor my actions us a man and as a citizen in the late muuicypul cam paign, or in oilier political ovemeuts. 1 deny tueir right to ( ensure me or to punish me for my opinions on political economy un less they can show that these opinion' are clearly contrary to tho teachings of <hristi an religion. This they hare not shown, and 1 know they cannot show it. I 1 1 avo not appealed to Rome from the judgment* of the Archbishop, and f tiavumo desire tido so. 1 deny uienglit of Bfloja Propaganda or Pope t > order me to ltouil Mhe vow ot obedience’’of a orient. 40 \jr of which so many absurd things have boon said within tlie last few weeks, is simply a promise to obey the church authorities in matters concerning the priest's dimes of re- Union. It were monstrous to Imagine that the promise has not clear and well defined limitations. Mv obligation taken hs a student of the Propaganda was not as some seem to imugiuo to go wherever and do whatever that institution should see lit to command, but simp v to return to my native place and there devote myself to the ministry of re ligion. In an Interview pulri-hod In the World during the la’e muni tpal canvass I took occasion from Mgr. Preston’s political letter to admonish turn and other ecclesiastical dignitaries of t tie grave danger of repeating Ihe folly and shame of condemning scientific truth as religious heresy—the shame and folly of which their predecessors had been guilty in ihe condem nation of Galileo and Uoperntcus. It seems that they are fated to repeat tins crime and blunder and to add another u> the many rea sons that have made men look upon eeciestas tirm authority ns one of the groalesi foes of scientific progress, of national development and of national liberty, and in large part a hindrance rather than a belt* in ihe way of briuging to the whole world the light, purity and comfort that come from tho teachings and ministrations of Christ. TURPI K’S FLECTION. The Bcptiblicans to Contest It in the United States Senate. Indianapolis, Feb. 3.—The Republi cans do not admit tbe legality of .Mr. Tin pie’s election to the United states Senate, or that the work of the joint convention was perfected in the proceedings of Wednesday. On the other hand the Dem ocrats claim that the record is valid, and the joint convention adjourned yesterday sine die. In accordance with the motion ot Representative Gardiner, which the Republicans say prevailed, the joiutoon vention reassembled to-day at noon, with ail the Democratic and seven Republican Senators absent. Speaker Sayre presided, and tbe Clerk of the House called the roll of both houses In the presence of a crowd as largo and as Keenly interested as any that have assembled in the House of Rep resentatives from day to day durlug the contest. THE BALLOTING, Ten Senators and sixteen Representa tives of the Republican side answered, but the Democratic members were silent. They were regarded as absentees until the roll of that class was called, when the Speaaer announced the presence ot each one but as not answering. Representa tive Gardiner then presented a preamble and resolution reoiting the illegality of the election of Mr. Turpie and the pre tended adjournment of the convention sine die, and calling for an investigation in order to prepare a memorial of oon’est to be presented to the United States Sen ate, Tho resolution provides for the ap pointment of a committee of five to pre pare the memorial, ihe resolution was adopted, and the committee appointed thereon consists of Senators Winter and Houston, and Representatives Gardiner, Griffiths and Liuek.

Washington, Feb. 3.—The House to day went into committee of the whole on tbe pleuro-pneumoma bill, the pending amendment being one offered by Air. Cutcbeon, ofMichigan, providing that tin experts and agents to be appointed in pursuaanceof this act shall be appointed under civil service rules. The amend ment was lost by a vote of 13 to 86. Alter a couple of hours had been con sumed in an effort to limit tho debuts on the bill, Mr. Swinburne, of New York, offered an amendment strikiug out tbe provision for the destruction of diseased animals and inserting in lieu thereof a provision that such animals shall he quarantined and destroyed if deemed necessary for scientific investigation by scientific experts, and the experts shall provide such rules aud regulations us they deem necessary to best prevent tbe spreading of disease and promote a thorough investigation and understand ing of its nature, characteristics and con sequences. This was agreed to by a vote ol 97 to 73. Mr. liuiterworth, of Ohio, offered an amendment reducing from three-fourths to one-hall the value of an animal when unsound, as the compensation which may be allowed owiurs of caule for animals slaughtered under the provisions of this act. This was agreed to by a vote ol 110 to 36. Without concluding consideration oi the bill tbe committee rose. PAIINMjI/s A II.MK\T. Bright’s Disease I'mlerminins Ills Health— >• rin’s I'iglit.

Another I Housntul Held In Reserve at. Police Headquarters in Ite:.illness to quell Rioting - U in-rut r * lion at Any l’olnt In the City Possible in an Hour— Non-Union Men Joining the Strikers. New York, Fob. B.—The White Star steamship Republic and the Inman steam ship City of,Chicago, scheduled to sail to day witli the transatlantic mails, did, not get off because ot the strike. The carpet factory of E. S. Higgins ,fc Cos., was closed again to-day, tlia hands, machinists, weavers and all tho rest hav ing refused to work. The employes held a meeting Tuesday, and deoided that they would not work while tuo factory was be ing run on "scab” coal. A committee called on the firm and notified it of tho resolution. In order to avoid loss to tho firm, however, the hands agreed to work yesterday so that tho machinery could be stmt down ou regular course. This morning no employes went to work. Work was resumed only Thursday last after a strike agaiust a reduction of wages. ON THE CIEHS. At the steamship piers there was much improvement. Freight was lieiug moved mostly by new tnen. There is an abun dance of unskilled labor to be had, and the superintendents of the docks have tuore than they have places for. The trouble is that these men liuve bad no ex perience nt freight handling. The Mal lory and Ward Lines are receiving freight lor the South. The situation is very “irregular.” Some of the steamship lines ami coal handling brauoues of the railroads are but little incommoded, those being in best condition where the strike has lasted longest, as they have been able to train new men. Some of these have got so far along as to exercise tbe right, of selection among the men applying for work, and are weeding out men unfitted for the la bor required. From this standard the de gree ol disability ranges down to almost total helplessness where the strike only took effect yesterday or to-day. SHIPMENTS LIGHT. All the freight lines, both land and water, are somewhat favored by the lact that shippers are sending nothing they can witnhoid, and the carriers are also reiusing perisnable goods, or goods that will suffer by delays, except to such quan tities as they can handle. At the New York Central’s freight depot, a gang of Italians quit work and joined tbe strikers. Tbe master workman of au Italian local assembly ot the Knights of Labor called at the headquarters of tho Ocean Association and told the commit tee that the seventc-tive Italians who were working as non-union men were willing to strike if admit'ed to tbe union. The offer was accepted and the men struck. Superintendent of I’olice Murray has taken vigorous measures to repress out rages. inspector Steers has taken charge of the police along the piers with head quarters at I’ier 89, North river, with a large force of uniformed police under bis command. IN A STATE OF SIEGE, The river iroiits are practically In a state of siege. One thousand police have been massed in reserve at four different points. Capt. Murphy was placed at pier 29, East river, Capt. Sunders at pier A, North river, near the Battery, Capt. Yule lit pier 39, North river, and Capt. Garland at pier 5(1%, North river, l’atrol wagons have been stationed at each place, so that tbe whole force can be con centrated at any given point in a short time. Tbe 1,01)0 men can handle twenty times that number ot rioters. One thous and more are in reserve at police bead quarters. In case of a riot the whole force can reach the scene inside ot an hour. In addition, fully 100 deteotives have been detailed for duty along tbe shore wearing plain clothes. COMPETENT CAPTAINS. The captains chosen lo command tho four divisions uro tne most moderate tempered men on the force. They have been selected as not likelv to provoke a tight, while fully able to carry it on if be gun. Among the non-union men brought to the Pennsylvania railroad piers to-day was a gaug of twenty negroes. When they found tho strike in progress they re lused to work, saying they had come un der Ibe impression that they were to lay track. Police guarded tho Savannah pier to day lor the lirst time during the strike. The non-union men ate ooarded amt lodged on a barge at tho bulkhead. They fear trouble Inconsequence ol a shooting affray on Tuesday nigbt. BOWING TO KINO HULK, The freig it handlers on the .Baltimore and Ohio pier, No, 43, North river, left work tbiu afternoon on being called out by a delegate. Tney obeyed with reluct mice aa they have never had any trouble with the company. They were the lant ol the railroad men to go out. The men told Superintendent Brooks that they had no grievances hut were forced logo out oil cull. They loaded up all the freight on the pier and swept the pluoe clean. The men refused to accept ant pay lor their work as they were going out on a call bv l he union, not on any grievances ot their own. I he sleumer Republic, of tb" \Vhlte Star Line, could not be loaded by green hands in time to sail to-day. Th • Kriii, of the National Line, was In a similar condition. The Morgan Line pier is choked up with freight and the gates are closed. (liven men have bugun to uuioad the Helvetia.

The discussion turned somewhat on the question of civil service reform. On that point Mr. Saulshury said that, while ho would not convert Pre>,l dent Cleveland into a public butcher, de capitating overy office-holder hostile to him, be would instruct him that it was a duty which he owed to himself, liis ad ministration. the party which elected him and tho country which lie served, t i purge the departments of men host,ih. tft ids administration, and unless he did s'! he would not, have a suceesslul admlute* tratiou. TUB I’ARTY HETTISR THAN KVKK. Mr. Morgan expressed the belief t.rmv there was more Intelligence represented in tho Demooratio party to-dav than evei had existed betore in any political parly. Many Republicans who bad witnessed the rapacity and infidelity to the eonHtt tution of their own party had been com* polled, through self-respect, to join iba party which had some respect for the cons Munition and law, and that was the rea son why he was able to say that, tbera was more intelligence represented in the Democratic party to-day than had ever been found before In any party in tha United States. The Demnorutlo nail;.’’ was a conglomerate party, made ttu largely ot men who had enough indepantf, enen of thought to leave behind the n their party leaders and machine worker* and come out in honest advooacy of oplss ions nnd ol a policy which they believed .essential to the whole country. WANTS THIS OFFICES, lie agreed with trio Senator from Dot,is ware that the President mistook his op* portunitiestor success, and put It very* mucbinp rll wlien ho deliberately lot• the conductorpublic affairs in the hand* of his enemies.

In South Carolina, a State having, as cording to the last, census, as many peo* pie as Kansas, and having us nianv li-p --resentatives In the other branch of Com gress, only 33,000 votes wero cast at tha lust Congressional election, wntle uem y 300,000 were cast in Kansas.

Mr. Morgan said that in Alabama tha Republicans had no ticket at ail. JEMIHON’H KETENTION. Sir. Beck explained that as to the Statu of Kentucky tUu smallness of the vote (lit Lexington district lor instance) wasdua to the fact that there was no Republican candidate running against Mr. Breckiu* riuge. lie agreed with the Senators Iroiu Delaware and Alabama that it was not a wise policy on the part of the administra tion to keep Its enemies in office, and ha referred to .Mr. .femlson, eniu of the rail road mail service, as a Republican who had under liim 4,400 employes with salaries from #I,BOO lo SBOO. Mr. l’lunib expressed a willingness to sue every Republican office bolder turned out. lie asked how it was that in Ken-< ucky. il the people were really there, they! did not come out lo express their opinions, at the polls. DBCLAKKD NOT KKPIIKSENTATIVB. What groundwork wits there lor the eulogy which the Senator from Alabama had nassed on th" Democratic party when only two or three per cent, of iis members went to the polls? lu those places where the Democratic party thrives most there was no such thing as public opinion. N/> man in Congress with only 8,000 or 4,009 votes at his hack could assume io repre sent any phase of that public opinion which ought to he finally reflected in tha laws enacted by Congress. He did nod care to go hack of the figures, f.ithur the Democratic parly had disappeared or is worse thing bud come about, and tbe peo ple ot those sections nad no Interest in public matters, didn’t care why represented them in Congress, and dn’t submit to the arbitrament! of Intelligent discussion, and were, per cuiinequeDOi.-, not fitted to exercise tha functions of government.
