Washington, March Representative
Springer states that the charges of corruption
and bribery brought against him will be thor
oughly investigated. He further Bays the
statement is made that I promised to agree to
whatever conclusion the sub-committee might
recommend after their investigation. To have
done such a thing as that would be to sign
away my individual judgment and opinion.and
if at any time I may have indicated that I was
disposed to favor Donnelly, it was before I had
heard Washburn's case as stated by Gen.
Kiefer, and I had heard but one side. But I
can't Bay more until the investigation. I shall
ask for a committee to investigate the subject,
and do not care whether it is entirely com
posed of Manning's friends or of Republicans,
provided it shall consist of .gentlemen. Of
course it would not be proper to have the _ sub
ject investigated by the elections committee,

REPUBLICANS ADMITTING WASHBUKN's GUILT.
Washington Special (April 1) to Louisville
A Democratic member of the committee said
to-night that by the principles of the election
law bribery proven on a party to a contract
makes him ineligible, and subjects him to
criminal prosecution; besides, where the elec
tion has been procured by frau-i, the number
of ballots so affected are to be deducted, and if
they are numerous enough to five the contest
ant a majority, the latter is elected. Applying
this rule to the present case, Donnelly should
be entitled to the seat. Tho committee will re
port the case to the House, when there will i c
both a majority and minority report, and it
may be that there will be a third report, in
which case the final disposition of the question
This vote is a curious commentary on the
talk which has been going the rounds of the
press that the attempt t». oust Washburn was
for the purpose of stealing his seat for a
Democrat. Washburn's successor iB for the
people of bis district to choose, and may be a
Republican yet. There is a general feeling,
even extending to some Republicans, that
Washburn is really guilty of bribery, and has
been justly dealt with by the committee.
A Washington special to the New York
World, accounting for Weaver's position in
the Donnelly-Wa-vhburn contest, Bays: Weaver
is not disposed to hasten action in the matter,
inasmuch as be would prefer to have the Cur
iin-Yocum case first disposed of in the House.
The majority report in that case favored a new
election, but Mr. Weaver hopes to defeat this
report with the aid of tho Republicans, so as to
keep bis fellow Groenbacker seated. It is said
that if Weaver could feel certain that the Re
publicans would back him in his fight for Yo
cum he would not hesitate about casting his
ballot in the committee for Washburn. At
any rate, it is said, he will not consent w> the
seating of Donnelly.

Politicians of both sides pay that a truco of

this disposition is commendable."

Reported Organisation of a Filibustering
Organisation to Sail from Delaware.
[Special TeUgram to the Globe.] .
Washington, April 4.— Discovery of a *BBherue to
Bend a filibustering expedition to Cuba from some
poiut on the coast of tho United States, was repotted
in Washington last evening. Tho story, whlok
originated in New York, was that Lewes, Del., was to
be the point of departure, and that the Spanish min
ister in this city had received such definite informa
tion on the subject that he had brought the matter
to the attention of Secretary Evarts, who had taken
measures to prevent the departure of any vessel on
such an unlawful mission. The Spanish minister
when informed of these rumora said that he had for
Borne time beeu aware that such au expedition was
fitting out somewhere on the coast of the United
States, but had been unable to discover the port from
which it was to depart. He had no information that
it had been discovered at Lewes, but the situation of
that port was bo favorable for the preparation and
escape of a filibuster that he would not be surprised
to learn that it had been chosen as the base of oper
ations. The latest definite new* received at the
Spanish legation in this city is that Senor Oaroia,
who has been one of the most prominent and active
of the Cuban patriots in this country, had suddenly
disappeared. This has led to the supposition that
the expedition has either started or is about to start.

Chicago, April 4.— Tho emigrant travel through
Chicago wostward is simply enormous. The railroad
companies are taxed to furnish cars for the trans
portation of this class of passengers. In this tide of
travel all the nationalities of Europe are represented.
Their destinations cover every one of the Western
and Northwestern Slates, and some of the Territo
ries. A majority, however, are ticketed to Manito
ba. Those destined to that frosty frontier are
mostly emigrants from Canada and Nova Scotia.
Since the first of the year the movement has been
steady in that direction. Trains of ten and fifteen
coaches have been employed in transporting colo
nies of these settlers after new homos. Thursday
three special trains were employed in bringing emi
grants from Detroit. About 1,900 of these people
passed thiough Chicago on that day. They were
mostly bound for Manitoba. Some are intending to
settle on the line of the Northern Pacific railroad in
Northern Minnesota and Dakota. Yesterday the
number of emigrants that arrived via the Michigan

Philadelphia, April 4.— The Irish convention

some importance. J. O'Donovan Rossa, the Fenian
leader, and others of that stamp, are at tho head of
it. Circulars were sent out to the principal cities
asking all Irish societies to send delegates. Tho ob
ject is to free Ireland from British rule. One of the
leaders in the movement said to-day, "We intend to
throw 100,000 rifles into Ireland and put them into
the hands of men trained to their use Dy army veter
ans. With such a force we can raise the flag of rev
olution so it will have some chance of floating. Wo
want to raise money, two or three millions. Unless
we have that much it will be no use. Wo can pur
chase 100 (100 rifles and teach 100,000 men how to use
them. We will get them into Ireland one way and
another, and although the Irish are not a thoroughly
patriotic race, still we count on having half a million.
One man out of every ten will join tin. A third of

A BAD FOOTE.
A. S. Fuute.One of the Propii»t-jrsof the
La Croßßo Democrat, Arrested for At
tempting to Burn the Democrat Building
—Also Charged With Forgeries on His
[La Crosse Chronicle.]
LaCrosse has been agog to-day, and au excite
ment such as not frequently occurs here or any
where else, has prevailed over the arrest of Alpheus
8. Fcote, junior member of the firm t f Pomeroy &
Fuote, editors and proprietors of Pumeroy's Demo
era/, on a charge of attempting to burn the Demo
crat building by placing a box of r-ai-cr containing a
lighted candle in such a place that when it burned
down to a certain point the paper would catch fire
aud communicate tho flames to the biu'lding.
Last evening the police were called upon, not
particularly to their surprise, to effect the ar
rest of A. S. Foote, proprietor of Pomeroy's
Democrat, upon tho charge of attempting to
destroy by fire tho building occupied by them
as a printing office. The facts of the case are aa
follows, as gathered from Mr. Huntsman, who made
the complaint, and Chief of Polico Hatch, who made
the arrest: About half-past 6 o'clock last evening
Mr. Huntsman, managing editor of Pomeroy's Dem
ocrat, being in the orlice later than nsual, had occa
sion to go from his apartment to the room formerly
occupied by Mr. Pomeroy as a private apartment.
The nsual entrance door he fouud himself unable to
open, and consequently went t. round by the bath
room and water closet. In passing through this
room he discovered in a corner concealed from view
a cigar box filled with paper aud other combustibles,
in the middle of which a lighted candle stood up
right. Mr. Hjuatsmau is a calm and clear-headed
man, but his luieea trembled and his head whirled at
this discovery. No person had access to this portion
of the building except himself and Mr. Foote.
There were no outer windows, and when the candle,
which was timed to reach the paper in
tareo or four hourp, had burned low, and
the inevitable conflagration started, there
was no possibility of discovery f lorn outoide until the
center of the building was in a blaze, which oil our lire
facilities w ould have failed to extinguish until it had
consumed the adjacent Opera house with all its valu
able immovable contends, and perhaps other property
near at hand. Mr. Huntsman comprehended aUthis
as ho gazed at the unique but most effectual slow
match, which had been provided to do this destruc
tive work. He then, without removing or disturbing
the position of anything, extinguished the caudlo
and sought Postmaster Charles Seymour, to whom the
startling story was told. Mr. Seymour at once com
municated with Chief of Police Hatch, who upon
consultation with these two gentlemen, deemed that
evidence enough existed in Mr. Huntsman's state
ment to warrant the arrest of Mr. Foote on a charge
It has been known for many mouths in this office
that Mr. Foote had been charged with forging the
name of his father-in-law as an endorse
ment upon certain notes, aggregating some
where from three to five thousand dollars,
which had been used to pay bills incurred by the
firm of Pomeroy & Foote. Some of th*-se notes Mr.
Vincent is said to have fathered aud will have to pay
if he has not already paid them. But since the ar
rest of Mr. Foote new forgeries have been devel
oped, we are told, until the whole sum of forged pa
per approaches, or may even exceed $10,000. The
last forgery of $2,500 is a note barely a month old,
and a bank in this city is the victim. It is under
stood that the latest developments are of a nature
that have set Mr. Vincent's face against the prisoner,
and if this Is true he will probably have a hard chance
for freedom .
The constables havo been serving attachments on
Foote wherever they could find anything that did not
belong to the postmaster, since the arrest, most of
them being for employes to whom wages are due.

London, April 4.— Lord Beaconsfield and

London, April — The Observer of this morn

cision whether tho government shall resign at
once or await an adverse vote f f the liberal
majority is ascertained. After the result of
the polling on Friday became known a special
messenger was sent to Baden Baden with dis
patches for the queen.. Wo have reason to be
lieve that Gladstone disapproves of the ar
rangement suggested in various quarters that
he accept a subordinate office ill the new admin
istration. He still adheres to his in
tenion of not resuming office, but will
cordially support the recognized liberal leaders,
Earl Granville and the Marquis of Hartington.
The reports current about the composition of
the new ministry are obviously premature, as
there has been no consultation between the
liberal leaders on the subject: We mention
the following reasons as possessing a certain
amount of probability, although relying as yet
on no basis of ascertained fact. It is said the
Earl of Derby will be offered- the foreign office.
It he refuses, as is probable, the office will be
assigned to Lord Kimberley. W. E. Forster
will be minister of colonies; Gospen, chancellor
of the exchequer; Lord Card well, secretary of
war; Mr. Childers, first lord of the admiralty;
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Sir Charles
Dilkc and Mr. Fawcett as representatives of
the advanced section of the party will occupy
seats in the new cabinet. Lord Roseberry it
may also be taken for granted will hold an
important position in tho liberal administra
tion. ; /I' ; '

Tho report of the House committee on elec
tions in tho contested case of Donnelly vs.
Washburn, from the Third Congressional dis
trict of Minnesota, will come up for considera
tion to-day or to-morrow. We have heretofore
commented on this case. The report shows
conclusively that Washburn secured his elec
tion (?) by open and flagrant bribing and in
timidation. Hundreds of voters, employed
on a railroad in which Washburn
is interested, were threatened with immediate
discharge if they did not vote for him. aud~ in
Minneapolis the ballots were illegally number
ed to correspond with the voter's name, so that
if he voted for Donnelly he could be identified
and punished by discharge from employment.
Among the facts cited in the report is the re
markable and impossible increase of the Re
publican vote in Minneapolis. In 1876 Hayes
had a majority of 855 there, and in 1878
Washburn made the Republican ma
jority 3,680, which ia shown to be
fraudulent. Donnelly really beat Washburn
by 230 votes in the district. This man Wash
burn was put up by the timber ring of north
ern Minnesota, who have been for years en
gaged in stealing timber from the government
lands, and the secretary of the interior having
taken measures to check the depredations and
punish the thieves, it was necessary to have a
man identified with the ring's interest in Con
gress. Of course the ring determined to seat
Washbarn, cost what it might.

AMONG THE CHURCHES.
Dr. Clmnulug'ri Centennial at Unity Church
— Anniversary Services at Assumption
< Is —Communion at St. Louis.
Or. Channino'i Centennial.
Tho exercises at Unity church, yesterday
morning, wero of an interesting character. The
occasion was taken to have memorial services
in honor of the centennial anniversary of Dr.
William Ellery Channing's birth, whioh occurs
on Wednesday next.
The services, in tho selection of hymns
and the prayer delivered, were appropriate to
the purpose set forth, and mado especially
so by tho recitation of Whittier's poem on Dr.
Charming. A portrait of Dr. Charming was
hung in front of the pulpit, beautifully orna
mented with a wreath of choice flowers, sur
mounted by a bouquet of exquisite calla lilies.
The interest of the occasion culminated in an
address delivered by tho Rev. W. C. Gannett.
He bof<an by alluding to the fact that Chan
ning's anniversary would bo observed through
out the United States. What he had done for
humanity survived him. "Prophets never
die." The wisdom they are imbued with sur
vive for the benefit and enlightenment of man
Following bis brief introduction, the speaker
remarked that he would present a series of pic
tures of Channing's life to illustrate two
points or phases of his career: "Charming
coming to himself;" "Channing's connection
with the Unitarian movement." In pursuance
of this declaration, Mr. Gannett gave a sketch
of Channing's boyish days. He was born at
Newport, R. I, April 7, 1780; at 14 years of age
he was sent to college. In this connection, the
parents of Dr. Charming wero spoken of, and
the mother eulogized as a truth-speaking wo
man, to 'whom the sun's marvelous purposes
and work for good were attributable. In this
way the career of Dr. Charming was treated.
His sejourn as a teacher hi Richmond, Va., in
the family of Mr. Randolph, was pictured; his
return home shattered in health from some in
ward disturbance, which fitted him by its suf
fering for a better conception and action in
his work. Established as a Presbyterian di
vine in Federal Street Church, Boston, the
speaker alluded to his popularity as a
teacher and preacher. His popularity
as evidenced by bis increased congregation was
wondered at, as bis sermons were not such as
addressed themselves to the ordinary listener.
They wero free from ornate embellishment, but
masterful and forcible in truth. In this lay
his power. He was earnest as if not convinced
and "his eyes looked as if they had beheld the
gloiy of God," so earnest were they in giving
expression to his thoughts in behalf of man
kind. In this manner the listener was led up
to that period, when Calvinism began to be in
vestigated, and the ptern and unrelenting doc
trines of Puritanism began to be doubted. At
this juncture the speaker declared this period of
Channing's life could best be understoodjbytell
ing what Unitarianism meant, following which
a doctrinal exposition of the Unitarian belief
or purpose was given. Dr. Channing's connec
tion with this evolution in religion was named.
His power was cited by referring to his f amous
Baltimore sermon, which first put in form ho
belief or creed of the Unitarians, which b a
fall recognition of divinity in God's human
creatures. The bitter controversy following
this enunciation and which continued up to
Dr. Channing's death in ISlii was referred to,
but throughout Charming was never violent,
never personal and aocorded to his opponents
the full earnestness of sincere belief.
In summary, Dr. Channing's life was de
clared to have been for a purpose, nobly ful
filled in tho Kisdom of God for the benefit of
Tho same subject in a different phase will be
treated of next Sunday.
The Church 9 f St. Louis.
The church of St. Louis was the scene of an
interesting ceremony, yesterday, that of ad

his flock . The symbol being that all are of
one family, children of the church, and that
in unity and harmony they abide.

Dr. J. .'I . Bryant's Well Equipped Estab-
The dental parlors and operating rooms of
Dr. J. H. Bryant, surgeon dentist, occupying
the entire second floor at No. 8 East Third
stiect, are marvels of neatness and beauty.
The surroundings are bright, and the cheerful
tints of the decorations, handsome pictures

of the patient. One article of furniture is
worthy of special mention. It is one of Wilk

constitutes the operation of teeth drawing a
luxury. The chair contains all the movements

ered or moved to suit any conceivable position
necessary to the operation.
The dental rooms consist of a reception
room, two operating rooma and a laboratory,
where two experts are employed in turning ont
the most finished work known in the business.
All descriptions of dental work is performed
in the safest and most approved manner, and
satisfactory work is guaranteed. The reputa
tion of Dr. Bryant, however, in St. Paul for
turning out perfect work at reasonable prices,
is such as not to require extended mention. A
number of dental engines are employed and
the establishment is equipped with all the
latest appliances in the business. When
necessary gas is administered to extract teeth,

great tragedy of "Virginius" will be presented.
In the title role Mr. McCullough has never bid

artist the world over produced. In speaking
of his rendering of the part in New York the
Spirit of the Times, one of the best dramatic
authorities in the country, says:
"Knuwlca' well devised and excellent old
tragedy of Virginius, was the initial play of
fered by the actor, and in it he is seen to gri-at
advantage. Throughout, Mr. McCullough was
really admirable. In the scene with his daugh
ter he waa tender and dignified, and in the last
act, where the heart-broken father, who has
slain his child to avenge bis honor, and create
that revolution which is to free Rome from a
tyrant, rose to great excellence. His grief was
painful to witness, his indignation impressive,
and his declamation always noble and earnest.
