THE PERUVIAN COMPANY. Senator Blair’s Examination Continued. ■Washington, May 4.—The examination of Senator Blair was resumed thismorniDg before the foreign affairs committee. Chairman Williams said, “I understood you were more interested in the policy of the Unit ed States than in any financial scheme? The witness replied that ho early became in terested in the subject of the inter-oceanic canal, and in that connection with the opera tions of DeLesseps. He thought that with the proper policy toward Peru by this country, her integrity of territory might he preserved and an alliance with her might be of groat value to this country. The witness thought some de cided action should have been taken at the ex tra session of Congress. At that time the strongest assertion of the Munroe doctrine should have been given out, that no other than American control should be allowed over any Isthmian transit. “Just what the United States ought >o do to preservo the territorial integrity of Peru I have never considered, other than that we ought to go just so far as politic. I be lieve in North and South America for North and South Americans. I believe that Provi dence has designed the leadership on this con tinent to be with this country.” Mr. Williams—In defending the western en trance of the Isthmian canal, which do yon re gard as the most Important alliance for the United States, with Peru or Nicaragua? Mr. Blair—I should judge an alliance with Peru to be much more v. iue. Peru can sustain a population of many millions. Mr. Williams—When did you first meet Ship herd? Thof witness replied that the first intervew took plftco at his (Shipherd’s) office iu New York. Ex Senator Cragin introduced them. The interview was brief. The conversation was in substance that he (Shipherd) wanted to engage the witness’s services in bringing the subject of the Peruvian company to the atten tion of the State department. The witness in dicated that he would see Shipherd later in regard to it. , . „.. The second Interview took place at Snip herd’s office about the 10th of July. The wit ness was under the impression that Lragin Was with him, but went away again. Most of the conversation took place between them when alone The witness would not undertake to give the dialogue with fluency and apparent accuracy that Shipherd had employed, but would endeavor to give the substance of it, which was in effect that Shipherd explained the Cochet claim, discussed the situation in Chili-Pernvian affairs, the probability that Chili would accept the money indemnity, and the desire on the part of those Shipherd repre sented to assist Peru in raising the amount re quired, using the Cochet claim as the basis of negotiation with Peru, and by a settlement of this kind to secure for the United States the incidental commercial advantages which other wise might go to foreign powers. Mr. Williams—You understood that it was desirable to enable Peru to secure the retire ment of the Chilian forces from her territory and to enable her to satisfy Chili’s demands for indemnity? Answer—Yes, I did. . Mr. Williams—It was your purpose to aid in accomplishing this result, was it not? Answer—Yes, sir. Mr. Williams—Just what Shipherd want ed vou to do; will you please he careful to state to the committee your understanding of it? Mr. Blair—He wanted me primarily to exam ine his papers and give my opinion upon them, but more particularly he desired me to ascer tain the attitude of this government toward Chili and Peru. Ho wanted me to see the Sec retary of State and learn what the policy of this government would be. I thought it pro per and right to do so. Mr. Williams asked if the witness knew of any other counsel at the time retained by Ship herd. The witness replied, “he (Shipherd) showed me Boutwell’s opinion and mentioned having consulted other counsel. At that time he (Ship herd) seemed to entertain no doubt whatever of the validity of the Cochet claim. The speci fic and important thing, the initial thing in fact for them to know was whether t^o policy of this country would be such as would make it safe for them to enter into contracts and hold property on Peruvian soil.” The witness understood our government to assume a posi ion of warning away other pow ers, which was entirely in accord with his views of what it ought to be in all matters affecting the affairs of this continent. * The witness was asked if he understood that the Peruuian company expected to be able to furnish the amount of indemnity which Chili would demand, and replied, ‘ There was no Peruvian company at that time. I supposed there was a syndicate embracing those he had mentioned to me as being, interested in the claim. I do not recall the names of all of them, lmuiwr<ue puBiished in the prospectus.. I. think. Shipherd’s estimate ut-nio «i»nn was a billion dollars. I do not know what it was worth. I considered it dependent upon subse quent arrangements with Peru herself. I un derstood the indemnity was put down at about 35mil'ion.” Mr. Williams iuquired relative to the inter view of July 25th and 26th at Biaine’s house. The witness saw Mr. Blaine and told him something in relation to this matter, but said he did not care in so important a matter to transmit to Shipherd the views of the depart ment but desired Mr. Blaine to se'e Shipherd audtalk with him. Mr. Blaine readily assented and the interview occurred on the evening of the 25th. Mr. Blaine seemed fall of company and the interview was brief, perhaps half an hour. The conversation was general. Noth ing was said by any one that was not heard by all. The witness could only give in general terms the subject matter. The conversation turned upon the probable policy of this govern ment, what attitude our government would take and whether its policy would be perma nent and well understood. Mr. Blaine seemed to know something of the Landreau claim, but in regard to the Cochet claim after it was ex plained to him he raised some questions. At an interview the next morning lasting about an hoar Walker Blaine was there a short time and took part in the argument. The sub stance of the interview was a pretty thorough discussion of the Cochet claim. Mr. Blaine made the point that it originated as a claim npon Pern by a French citizen, and that Ship herd could have no rights against Peru that a Peruvian would not have; that the claim seemed to bo merely an assignment to an American citizen. Shipherd asserted that the claim was not a chose in action but was based upon actual property. Mr. Blaine then seemed to assent to the pro position, if it was as Shipherd represented that the American claimant wou,d be entitled to the kindly offices of his government. Mr. Blaine communicated to us the substance of the instructions he had given to Minister Hurl but and Minister Kilpatrick, and these instruc tions, which I am very sure wore communicat to us at that time, Mr. Shipherd said were all that he desired. The understanding was at that time that Chili would accept a money indemnity, so that it seemed if there was no change in the policy of this Government that it would be safe and wise for the syndicate to go on and form their company and negotiate with Peru in the matter of aiding her to pay the indemnity. Mr. Blaine seemed quite clear from the previous history of the Landreau claim, that it was one for which this govern ment could properly exercise its good offices, unofficially, in securing a hearing and adjudi cation by the government of Peru. The witness was asked why the Secretary did not consider the Cochet claim as entitled to the same consideration, and replied, “Because he said it was an assignment from a foreigner to an American citizen. . Question—Did not Shipherd claim that he also represented or owned the Landreau claim? The witness understood that Shipherd told Blaine that for purpose of negotiation with Peru he (Shipherd) was authorized to repre sent the Landreau claim, and in fact the Cochet claim was a prior lien and should take precedence. Belmont—How do you reconcile that with the letter of Bobert Christie to Blaine, in which he states that he is attorney for the Lau dreau claim and the only person there is to act for it? Williams—If the gentleman will pardon me, I have but a question to ask and then I am through. Mr. Blair—Certainly, and if the Chairman S lease I would like to answer the question. I o not know Mr. Christie and have no know edge whatever of what connection ho has with the Landreau claim. I am only giving my understanding of what was said at this inter view concerning the Landreau claim. Mr. Williams—At this interview did you hear any allusion made by Shipherd to his offer of 8250,000. in stock to Mr. Hu(but? Answer—None whatever. I certainly would have heard it if anything of the kind was said. The examination was then postponed till to morrow._ • Escape of a Murderer. New Haven, May 4.—John Andersoy, who killed Horatio G. Hall in Wallingford, Con necticut, in March, 1874, and was seuteuced to State Pri3ou for life but was afterwards ad judged insane and sent to the insane asylum in Middletown, escaped from that institution last night. He left a letter addressed to Dr. Stan ley, one of the physicians, in which he stated that in twenty-four hours he would be out of the country; that he would injure no one with out he was cornered, and then he would fight to the death. He said ho was armed to the teeth, and that he was innocent of the murder of Hall. He left instructions about sending trinkets in the asylum to his mother and child. There is considerable excitement in Walling ford owing to the threats by Anderson that if he escaped he would be revenged on the peo ple of Wallingford who were active in prose cuting him for murder. Schooner Jed Frye, from St. John, N. B. for New York, lumber laden, went ashore in Musquash harbor Tuesday night where she had taken refuge and is full of water. A tug will take her to St. John. -j---— THE STAR ROUTES. . A Sensation Created in the Court Room. COL. INGERSOLL DENOMINATES MR. BLISS “A LIAR.” Washington, May 4.—Regular proceedings iu tlie cases of the United States against Brady, the Dorseys, Turner and others began in the criminal court to-day. Col. Totten moved to quash the indictment iu Tamer’s case upon substantially the same grounds as the others have already been quashed. He al so made several other motions of an obstruct ive character and proceeded to explain the new points they involved. At Totten’s close Judge Wylie overruled the motion to quash and the defence noted an objection to his rul ing. Co). Ingersoll said he had another mo tion to file in Dorsey’s case. It was like the other and he was about to make an argument upon it when Judge Wylie said the matter was finally settled and he should hoar no more arguments upon it. Counsel for defense then filed a number of motions and pleas which the court over-ruled in bulk and Col. Totten asked to haTQ exceptions noted. The court stated there was no Buch thing as noting an exception in a criminal case in the District. They could only be regarded with ac ordor of court. After clearing np this point Mr. Merrick said John W. Dorsey had not been arraigned and Mr. Bliss added that in view of the fact that Ingersoll had promised him in positive terms several weeks ago to produce John W. Dorsey in court, and relying upon tnis promise although they had a bench warrant for his ar rest they had promised “Not to make them selves unhappy” in trying to secure his arrest, Dorsey had not been produced. He wanted to call attention to this barefaced violation and say ho regarded it as a mere measure of delay. At this point iDgersol sprang to his feet and bringing his fist down upon the table, exclaim ed, “you are a liar, sir, a liar.” Considerable excitement followed and the court called upon the marshal with the evident intention of placing some of the participants under arrest. Bat seemingly changing his mind, said, “such language is intolerable and I will not endure it. Perhaps Col. Ingersoll has gone beyond the just measures of retaliation but the offense of Mr. Bilss is inexcusable. I will allow e offence to pass npon this occasion, but warn all the gentlemen to avoid a repetition of it.” Col. Ingersoll in answer to an inquiry from the court, said that he did not deny the facts but he did deny that he had been guilty of a trick. He acted with perfect good faith nnder a conviction he would be able to produce Dor sey. He supposed when he made the arrange ments he had power to prodnce.Dorsey, and he wanted to say now he could not. Mr. Merrick then asked for an extension of ten days in order that Dorsey might be found and the court finally granted an extension of the hearing until Tuesday, May 16. XLVHth Congress-lst Session. SENATE. Washington, May 4. Department commnnications were received recommending an appropriation for a fire proof roof over the interior department build ing, and showing the tax collected on raw cot ton from 1862 to 1868. Referred. Mr. Voorhees’ resolution for a committeo of investigation as to alleged corrupt or improper influences concerning the House bill now be fore the finance committeo amending the laws in regard to distilled spirits in bonded ware houses was taken up. Mr. Windom moved an amendment provi ding for an investigation as to whether money has been raised by contributions or otherwise from parties interested for or against tbe bill and tor what uses it has been expended. Mr. Voorhees accepted the amendment. After considerable discussion during which several Senators afiirmed their belief in the per sonal integrity of Mr. Voorhees and that the House ways and means committee in favorably reporting the bill were actuated by the purest motives. Mr. Windom withdrew his amendmeut with a notice that ho would renow it to-morrow as an independent proposition. The resolution was then iruh-fi^iteie «<*>* ' P°Tll^2^AS?i6S bill was then taken trp ahdwas referred to the judiciary committee by a vote of 29 to 28. The chair announced his signature to the Chinese bill which now goes to the President. The Senate resumed the consideration of the court of appeals bill, but- without action the Senate adjourned. HOUSE. Mr. Kasson of Iowa in moving to go into committee of the whole on the tariff commis sion bill, stated that he expected that general debato on the bill would close to-day with the exception of speeches by members of the ways and means committeo who had not yet spoken. He hoped for a vote on the bill beyond ques tion on Saturday next. The House then went into committee of the whole on the bill indi Mr. Chandler of Massachusetts advocated the passage of the bill aud read a petition in its favor of fifty manufacturers, representing industries that employed $300,000,000 of capi tal and consumed 1,500,000 bales of cotton. Mr. Godshalk of Pennsylvania also ap roved of the pending bill maintaining that Congress needed additional light legislate intelligently on the subject. Messrs. Finley of Florida and Hatoh argued against a protective tariff. Mr. Cabell regarded the appointment of a tariff commission as a scheme for delay and announced his opposition to it. Mr. Briggs favored the pending bill because he thought the more information Congress ob tained before legislation the better. Mr. McLane announced his intention of of fering an amendment to the pending bill re ducing internal revenue taxation about $200, ooo 000. Mr. Morrison also favored the bill. The committee then rose ami the House ad journed. _ Jennie Cramer’s Murder. New Haven, May 4. The Malley case was opened this forenoon with the cross-examination of reporter Countryman by Mr. Jones, but nothing new was elicited. The next witness was Mrs. Cramer, mother of Jennie, who reiterated her testimony given at the .-preliminary exam ination in West Haven, and produced letters written by James Malley, Jr. to her daughter and letters written by Walter Malley signed ‘•Blanche.” . , . Mrs. Cramer testified she reproved Jennie August 3d for having remained from home the previous night. This was the last time she saw Jennie alive. Was introduced to Blanche Douglass at that time. Letters from James Malley, Jr., to Mrs. Cramer denying knowl edge of Jennie’s whereabouts when she was missing from home after August 3d, and con taining a statement that Blanche Douglass felt hurt at the blame put upon her by Mrs. Cramer were read as also a similar letter sign ed by Blanche Douglass and addressed to Mrs. Cramer. The prosecution claims that this let ter was written by Walter Malley aud sent with the consent of the Douglass girl. A num ber of letters from James Malley, Jr. and Blanche Douglass which contained invitations for Jennie to go ridiDg were introduced and identified by witness. Several others supposed to have come from the Douglass woman, but which the prosecution say they will prove came from Walter Malley, were read. Mrs. Cra mer’s cross-examination brought out nothing new. Adjourned._ FOREIGN. Interesting Discussion in the Com mons Upon Ireland’s Affairs. EX-SECRETARY FORSTER EXPLAINS HIS POSITION.

Gladstone announced that the charge of treasonable practices against Parnell would be withdrawn. Forster stated the reasons of his withdrawal from the office of Secretary for Ireland. Ho said he could not agree to release the suspects unless he got from them a public undertaking to cease opposing the execution of the law. As he could not obtain that he could not remain in the office. lie would have released the suspects if Ireland had been quiet or if the government had full powers but could not agree tQ an unconditional surrender. He ad mitted tbe condition of Ireland was better than n Jarnary, but was still so bad that he wanted the government to lot the rules of procedure wait until a fresh act socuring punishment for outrages had been passed. The coercion act, he said, had broken up tho league or nut it un der petticoats and rents were being better paid; uut he feared an unconditional release would bndo all tbe good effects. Forster in justifying the arrest of Parnell said, Parnell, if he had boon allowed, would have become King of Ireland. Forster de clared tbe proceedings of the imprisoned mem bers had been far moro than individual incite ments to outrage. Replying to a question he said it had been intimated to him the “no rent” manifesto would be withdrawn. Dillon, O’Kelly and Sexton stated such an intimation was without their authority. Gladstone stated the information came from Parnell, and as that gentleman was then absent he (Gladstone) declined any farther statement. After defending the arrest made Forster said if all England could not govern Parnell let the government acknowledge he is the greatest power in Ireland. But he believed neither such admission nor any weakening concessions were necessary. Better even the hideous se cret societies than paying black-mail to law breakers (This exclamation was received with ro irs and the opposition cheering.) Con tinning Forster said the course he had hoped to see pursued was that au act strengthening the ordinary law should be pressed forward ami then all tbe suspects released. He feared the price which would have to be paid for tho immediate diminution of outrages which might be produced by the unconditional release of Parnell would be weakening to tlioa power of any government to protect life and preparty. Foster spoke with considerable emotion. Parnell first entered the House while Fors ter was making his statement and was loudly cheered. Gladstone warmly praisod Forster for not compromising his liberal principles and de clared there was no arrangement or bargain with the Leaguers but tnat the government had availed themselves of information ten dered by men in a position to offer it. It was intended at the earliest momont to legislate an ; arrears of rent. j Sir Henry Drummond Wolff quoted Glad stone’s declarations that the land leaguers had ! caused outrage, rapine and murder. Sir Henry ridiculed the government for releasing tho leaguers as if they were innocent men. The land league he declared had beaten the govern ment and Gladstone had recognized Parnell as the ruler of Ireland. - Northcoto thought the present aspect of affairs looked like a triumph for the agitators. Parnell domed that the question of the re lease of himself and others was due to any cou ■ dition as to their future action (though he said he had statod verbally and in writing that be believed the settlement of arrears would have an enorrpons effect in restoring law and order, and if sach a settlement should bo made be would be able to take such steps as would have a material effect in diminishing the number of ! outrages. Dillon said he had not had directly or indi rectly any communication with the govern ment. O’Kelley denied having agreed to any con dition, wich denial Gladstone confirmed. Dublin, May 4.—In reply to an address from the corporation of Dublin to-day Earl Cowper, late Lord Lieutenant, said although he .regretted it, coercion he considered indis pensable. He was convinced that in a time of trouble and difficulty tbe position of viceroy, with a chief secretary in the cabinet vir tually entrusted with the government of the country is a thoroughly false one. Earl Cowper eulogized the abilities of Earl Spencer, bis successor, and in conclusion said: “1 wish to remark I am not personally respon sible for anything but the most ordinary busi ness which has been transacted during the last few days.” Earl Cowper departed for England to-day. The streets through whioh he passed were crowded with people and lined with troops. He was frequently cheered. Irish Affairs. London, May 4.—Parnell, Dillon and O’Kal ley arrived in London this morning and only a few persons were at the depot to meet them. The Home Rule members of Parliament are much disappointed at tho selection of Lord Cavendish tor Chief Secretary for Ireland. SOUTH AMERICA. Probabilities of a Trues Between Chili and Peru.

Horace Maynard, who died Wednesday, was born in Wostborongb, Mass., Aug. 30, 1811. Ho is remembered there as a poor boy, eager, ambitious, seldom sharing iu the sports of oth er boys, but toiling at bis books and at such work as he could find to do for his support. By his own efforts he made his way througli col" lego, graduating at Amherst in 1878. and soon after went to Tennessee, whoro ho has ever Bince lived. Ho was appointed a tutor in the University of East Tennessee, and afterwards professor of mathematics. He studied law in the meantime, and was admitted to the bar in 1844. His talents and industries securod him a good practice, and the confidence of the peo ple, who elected him i- ’•Mus local offices. In 1851 he was a presi< ; o' Mr. He was chosen a representative ■ -fifth eon" gross, and re-eleotei'' - :: - eding con gresses. His loyalty 1 r ,ugUt upon him the persecution to which an .oyai men were ox" posed there at that time. Hts property was confiscated, and he and his family were driven from their home. After the war ended ha was again elected to congress, and was re-elected in 1856, 1870 and 1872. In 1875 Mr. Maynard was appointed by President Grant minister to Tur key and continued at tiiat post until he was ap pointed postmaster general by President Hayes in 1880. ’ Since his retirement from that office, about a year age, he has been in private life, but it lias been thought probable that he Would be the republican candidate for the United Statos senate next winter. Mr. Maynard was tall and spare. Uis erect figure, dark complex ion, and straight jot black hair, which he usu ally wore long, gate some color to the surmise which perhaps had no other basis, that he had some Indian blood in lais veins. In his youth, before he left Westborough, he be came a member of tbs Congregational Church in that place, and retained his connection with it until during his years of prosperity, before the war, the fact that he wasfa slaveholder was made the ground of chnrch dicipline and finally of excommunication. This for a timo interrupted his friendly relations with his old acquaintances in that town, but they were re newed in later years, and when in this coun try lie used to spend there such time as be could spare in the summer months. He had long owned the house where he was born, and last summer expressed his purpose to make some changes and repairs, fitting it for his summer heme. He died suddenly, it is sup posed of heart disease, at one o’clock Wednes day morning. Mr. Mayard was an upright and able man, a round lawyer, a convincing and porsuasive, sometimes an eloquent speaker, in private and public life without reproach. Colby University. The base ball grounds have been rolled and greatly improved the past week, and the nine are training diligently for the summer campaigu. No games hare as yet been arrang ed. The gymnastic classes are preparing for a public exhibition in the gymnasium about the 1st of June. The customary oration and poem before the Alumni, on the Tuesday evening before Com mencement, will be omitted this year, and on that evening the inauguration of President elect Pepper will take place. Ex-President Robins is now in Chicago, and is not expected to be prisont during the Com mencement. A slight ripple of excitement was occasioned on the campus the other evening by the ap pearance of the freshmen with canes, but after a brief parado they publicly signified their in tention of refraining from the practice of car rying them in the future, as tending to wound Sophmoric dignity. Recent legislation by tho Faculty on the sub ject of cane rushes has considerably dampened the bellicose propensities of tho Sophomores. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL Portland Daily Wholesale market.
