Washington. Feb. IS.,?Elections Committee No. 1,
of which Judea* Daniel*., of New-York, ls chairman!
sustained an ovirwhclmlng defeat In the House of
Representatives to-day, when that body, by a vor.>
ot Hf yeas to 97 nays, reversed the committees
judgment In the contested election case of Hopkins
(Rep ) against Kendall (Dem), from the Xth Ken?
tucky District. In this case seven of the nine mem?
bers of the committee?four Republicans and three
Democrats?reported that Kendall, tho sitting
nu-mb-r. wns , l.ct.'d and entitled to the sent, and
two Republicans?Messrs. Royse. of Indiana, and
!. ray. of North Carolina?dissented, and filed a
report in favor of Hopkins, who appeared and took
the oath of office as soon as the result of the vote
had been announced.
The decision hinged on the vote of a single
county, in which, according to the official returns,
the sitting member received a majority of about
MS, hts majority In the entire district being about
.."?" The County Clerk of Clark County, who was
a Democrat, allowed hts partisan zeal to carry him
I the confines not only of the law but also
of tho provisions of the State Constitution relating
. ectla-s. He caused to be prepared as part of
the official ballot a counterfeit device or emblem
md placed lt over the column containing the names
of th* regular Republican candidates, while over
i> ciliimn coutateing the names of candidates for
s. eera! offices, but none for Representatives In Con
la he placed th.< regular, legal and recognized
emblem of the Republican party. This was done,
U-se, with intent to deceive lURsrutS voters
ail was a gross violation of the plain provision*)
? ibo law.
Messrs. Royse and Llnney contended that the
vote of Clark County ought to bo and must
..* rejected, inasmuch as the sworn official who
.. - ehaigsd hy law with the duty of preparing
. Issuing thea official ballots, which alone could
.-?I in the election, hal deprived the voters of
ounty of the opportunity to have jind use th*
Official SSCret ballots required by the Constitution
BS 1 laws of the State, and had done so In violation
of tho law and for a corrupt and fraudulent p;:r
Thls contention was supported by Messrs
Royse and Dinney in able and brilliant arguments
which comman led and held the attention of the
House. Mr. I.lnncy's speesrh. especially, won at
:>n!;cn and excited great enthusiasm and applause.
,;? liing SS it did to the sentiment lu favor o'
honesty and .'air play as well as to reason and
J ligment, but his culleague was fairly entitled to
in >..u.ai share of the honors o: the occasion.
The majority o' the committee held that the
CO ;rterfeit devloa In Clark County did not deceive
tnuURh -.utera to change the ra suit, and that thu
fraud was not SUCd s.sful enough to invalidate the
t ec I lon In that couir.y. That view o:" the case
a - stoutly advocated and defended In vigorous

Washington. Feb. IS?Th** louse Foreign Affr-lrs
Coeandttea to-day beard arguments by Reprcsenta
tivo Beach, of obi,,, on a resolution offend by bim
last month n*ipjesting tho Pr. sid. nt to enter Into
negotiations with the governments of China. Japan,
tho several republic*; and colonies of the American
HeSj-Spbere, thc Hawaiian Island* and tho Domin?
ion of Canada, "with a view to securing a uniform
srandnrd of value In trads an.l c. namer e." Mr
Beach began with the assertion that anv ami il.:
and fair treaty relation between Ho wt rn establishes
a bond of friendship and confld.-t.ee. Th.* American
manufacturer and producer, bo said, are to-day
keenly alive to the necessity of having a foreign
market. The system of exchange, heretofore -md
at present being condacted aim..*** entirely through
London, ls a great embarrassment to trade rela?
tions with these countries. The s hems ia pre?
sented in a plain manner ls to provide n coin of
commerce. It ls a coin which will not be popular
for general circulation, lt will not be receive] In
minor affairs In any part of the world. "Mj Mea,"
he continued, 'is that this coln should be a sliver
coin, and that In adopting it the present ard pros?
pective commercial v.il;:.- of silver should be con?
sidered, n is not Intended to a.- a l-^-..! lender in
fhis country, and probably would nor be m.ob- bo
in any ..th-r country. I; ls simply Intended a* a
tool of commerce, with the idea thal between mich
countries as mav enter into this agreement more
cordial trade relations will be est....! shed. As a
secondary but very important consideration, I
think su.h an agreemi vt would create a very im?
portant demand f..r Halted States silver." Mr.
Bea.-n will continue his argument before the com?
mittee on Thursday next.
James A. Scrymser. president of the Pacific Cable
rompnny, hrs tiled with the Hooss Committee on
Interstate and Foreign Comm-rce a reply to testi?
mony heretofore given before that committee by
Jeneral War.er Swaytie. In which General gwajrns
referred to "persistent calumnies'* which had fol?
lowed his company sln"e lt.-; organization. Mr.
Scrymser quotes Oeneral dwayne's testimony be?
fore th? genets r.immlttee on Foreign Relations

loin.ler, and refers in addition to extracts from
Mr. Hewitt's letter to Mr. Bayliss, rice-presidenl f
tiie Parilla .'.ih!- Company, in support of his own
issertloiis. He firmly contends for the COITC
? f his charge that there ls a strong Knelish Influ?
ence behind the Spaulding echeme, and quotes in
= .ij.;.ort of hu assert lon words ottered by Oeneral
?wayne and Mr. Hewitt, supplemented by ex?
tracts from a speech by Sir John render on April

this Pacific cable, but when they are vou mav ,!??
