WAsnisnToy, Mar 1. Thoro is n big row
browing among tho Domocrnts In tho llouso
ovortho proposition of tho Commltteo on Ap
propriations to mako n concral reduction In
ilia salarios provided for In tho Legislative, Ex

proposod reductions havo not yet boon ngrood

pected. It did not toko such news lone to
trnvol oil ovor Washlncton. nnd tho eonsc
quonco Is that ovory Oovornmont ofll
clal Is on tho nnxlous sunt. Bomo
ot tho mombors ot tho llouso who
votod for Mr. Holman's economy resolution
nt tho beginning ot tho session nro now ro
grottlng tholr aotion and aro propnrod to ro
pudlato it so far as tho reduction ot tho sala

thore aro othor moans of economizing than by
cutting off a fow dollars from tho calories of
evployocs In tho various departments ot tho
Oovornmont, and if tho intontlonof tho Com

ho proposes to move to chop oft a
slice from tho salaries of Concrossmon.
Mr. Shell says that if tho (lovornmont
cannot afford to pay its employees tho snlurlos
now allowed them. Concrossmon should nlso
suffor a reduction. Ho Is not n wealthy man.
and is loss able to stand a reduction than many
ot his associates, but ho insists t hut Congress

Tho most Interesting topio ot national con
corn that Is ono ot tho probabilities on tho
Bonato programme this week is connected with
tho New Orleans Italian incident. It Is in tho
form of a bill roported from tho Committee on
Foreign Dotations, and Its aim is to carry out.
tho recommondntlons In tho President's last
annual message, inspired by tho parish prison
mnsxaoroln Iew Orleans. It provides that
jurisdiction shall bo glvon to tho federal
courts ovor crimes committed in any htuto
against subjects of powers with which tho
United States has treaty relations. Tim prin
cipal dllllculty that confronted tho United
titutes in its dealings with tho Italian Govern
ment over tho Mow Orleans Incident was that
the limn concerned In tho killing of
tho Italians could not bo tried in the
United Mates courts, but only in tho
courts of the Statu of Louisiana. Tho
Italian Government bitterly complained
that this Government was violating Its treaty
agreomont In not taking Into its own hands
tho punishment of the culpable persons. (Sec
retary Ulaino explained tu Italy that punish
moot could bo hud only through tho htuto
courts ot Louisiana, tho jurisdiction over
murder in the several States being given to
them. But Italy insisted that tho United
Mutes had not acted In good faith, and to show
its feeling, liaron Fnva. tho Italian Minister,
was ro called from Washington, although dip
lomatic rotations wore not wholly soverod.
In order to avert in tho future any difficulty of
this nature, the bill roferrod to was brought
in by tho Commltteo on Forolgn Relations,
und It Is probublo that it will bo passed.
When the veterans of tho Grand Army of tho

The Great Month liny Orater War that
IIm .limt Ileen Hettled.
Morothnn ono thousand oystormon in tho
town of Drookhavon. L. I., nro nffoctod by tho
decision rendorod Saturday by Justlco Cullen
In tho Brooklyn Supreme Court, which gives to
tho "Tangier" Smith family of that town pos
session of tho famous lilue Point oyster beds
in tho Great South Day. For generations
tho oystermen had worked those beds at a
nominal foo. and they camo to look upon thorn
as publio property. Last fall, when tho heirs
of "Tangier" Smith sought to intorfero with
their long-ostnbllshcd customs, all tho oystor
men of tho Great South Day combined and re
solved, if nocossary. to use force In maintain
ing what thoy considered tholr rights. Mass
meetings wero hold la Pntchoguo and other
Encounters between tho free oystormon nnd
tholossoesot tho Smith heirs were frequent,
and bloodshed was talked about as possible.
Finally an organization known ns tho Oystor
mon's Mutual Protoctlvo Association was
formed, with County Judge Wilmot M. Smith
as Prosldont, nnd It was docidod to fight tho
matter out in court.
Tho Smith family claiming these oyster beds
is said to bo tho wealthiest family on Long
Island. It doscends from William Smith.
Chief Justlco of tho colony of Now York, who
made his home in Drookhavon in 3002. Pre
vious to coming to Araorica ho was Jiritlsh
Governor of Tangier, and his descendants aro
known ns the "Tungiur" Wraiths, to distin
guish them from thu "Hull" Smith family,
between whom and them no relationship exists.
xangior nraiui was mo original owneror
the land under the Great South Day. While
tho town had patents from Gov. Nleolls and
Gov. Dongau defining certain territory, they
could puichnso from tho Indians which would
givo thom absolute title, they neglected to do
bo. For 70 "Tangier" Smith purchaBod from
tho Indians forty square miles of farm and
timber land and 1U.000 aerosol land under
wuter. Subsequently ho obtalnod a patent
conllrming his title to tho property. Ho
nnd his lioirs derived somo revenue
from thoso lands under water, nnd In
17117. aftor a long dispute with the town
over tho right of ownership of the laud, Wil
liam Smith, tho great-grandson of "Tnnglor"
Smith, deeded to the town for a consideration
of sXt the land under the bay covered by tho
original Smith patent. Three days Into,-tho
town deeded back to him nn undivided onu
hi.lf Interest in tho land in dispute. Tho town
trustees nnd Smith also agreed to hold Iho
property In joint partnership, novor to bo
divided Lctwoun them, their heirs, or suc
cessors. From tills tlmo on until 1H.H5 the
town managed tho oyster bods, charging an
annual fee of SI per aero. This was known as
a toleration feo. and at tho ond of ouch suuson

anil demnnded that thoy bo allowed to manngo
the oyster beds for themselves. They wanted
to ralso tho rent per acre to $5 a yeor. Tho
trustees of the town declined to uccodo to
their demunds. and then tho guardians set

Mv Dunn Stnt Whon I rend in tho publio
prints that you had purchnsod " tho Hamilton
trees" nnd tho ground on which thoy stand, I
wns very much lntorostod In your pntrlotlo
offorts to honor tho memory of ono of tho
greatest men this country has produced. On
Saturday last you woro kind enough to tnko
mo out to visit the place. I thought It, next to
Mt Vornon, tho most interesting spot on this
continent. I then expressed to you my pur
pose to address a lottorto you on Hamilton's
clmractor and publio sorvlccs. I shall do this
in as short a spaco ns I can.
I havo boon a eloso student of Hamilton's
llfo nnd writings, and, with tho oxceptlon ot
his profossed blographors, I probably know ns
much nbout him ns anyone nowllvlng. Ono
docisivo proof of his grcntnoss of Intellect and
of his character Is tho fact that Washington
trusted nnd leaned upon him as ho trustod
nnd loaned upon no othor man. from first to
last, A vory omlnont nnd sncaclous forolgncr,
tho colobratod Prlnco, Talleyrand, who know
Hamilton personally, has loft htsesttmato of
him in unmistakablo terms. My kinsman, tho
lato Mr. doorgo Tlcknor, wroto to mo in 1854
"Ono day in January. 1810. talking with
Prlnco Talleyrand in Paris about his visit to
America, ho expressed tho highest admiration
ot Mr. Hamilton, saying, among othor things,
that ho had known nearly nil ot the marked
men of his tlmo, but that ho had novor known
ono on tho whole oquulto Hamilton. Iwai
much surprised nnd gratified with tho remark;
but still, fooling that ns nn Amorican I was in
somo sort a party concornod by patriotism in
tho compllmont. I answered with a llttlo re
servo that tho groat military commanders und
tho great statesmen of Europo had dealt with
I larger masses and widcrlntorests than Hamil
ton had. ' Mnis. moiisiour.' tho Prlnco instantly
replied. 'Hamilton nvoltdovlnd l'Europe.'"
In my History of tho Constitution, first pub
lished in 1854. 1 snld that Hamilton's groat
characteristic was his profound insight into
tho principles of government; and thnt the
sagacity with which ho comprehended all sys
tems, nnd tho thorough knowlodgo ho possess
ed of tho working of nil tho froor institutions
of ancient nnd modern times, united with a
slngulur capacity to muko tho oxporienco of
tho past boar on tho actual stuto ot society,
ronderod him ono of tho most useful states
men that America has known. Whatoveriln
tliosclenco of government hud already been
ascertained; wlintevor tho civil condition of
mankind In nny ago had mado practicable or
proved obortlvo: whatever exporlenco had
demonstrated; whatever tlio passions, the in
terests, or tho wants otmon had mado Inevita
ble, ho scorned to know Intuitively. Dut ho
was no theorist His powors woro all eminent
ly practical. Ho detected tho vlco ot a vicious
theory instantly, and shattorcd it with a slnglo
It has sometimes bocn charged thnt he
wished to soo a monarchical government es
tablished in this countny. Tho ohargo Is en
tirely without foundation. It was mndo by
somo of his contemporaries who wero his po
litical opponents, and it bus moro or less
afTocted tho opinion of him entertainod by
somo of his countrymen nt tho prosont day.
Although ho lenned decidodly to tho English
Constitution ns tho best form of civil polity for
tho attainment of tho great objects of govern
ment ho wns not on that account loss a lover
of liberty than thoso who favored moro popu
lar nnd democratic Institutions. His writings
will bo searched In vain for any disregard of tho
natural rights of mankind, or any Insonsibilty
to tho blessings of froodom. It was becauso ho
believed that thoso blosslngs can bo best so
cured by governments in which achangoof
rulers is not of frequent occurrence, that ho
had so high an estimate of tho English Con
stitution. At the period of tho Federal Con
vention ho held that tho chief want ot this
country wns a government into which tho ele
ment of n permanent teuuro of oiTlco could bo
partly infusod: andhoreadln tho Convention,
nsan illustration of his views, but without
pressing It. a plan by which tlio Executivo and
tho Bonato could hold their offices during
good behavior. But ho novor regarded tho
oxporimont of a monarchical government In
this country ns either practicable or desira
ble A tonuro of ofllco. by which tho
Senators could hold tholr offices durlnr? nnm
behavior, wlulo the mombors of tlio lower
House of Congress would bo chosen for lim
ited forms, had no tendoney toward a mon
archical government; and if tho jiowora of thu
President of tlio United States wero to bo
shaped us they woro by the Constitution and
as thoy exist now. n permanent tenure of
ofllco for the President would not havo mudo a
monurcliy. Thoro can ho no question. It
seems to me. that tho period of four years is
much too short It lias led to serious evils,
tno chief of which is tho oiTort of an incum
bent to secure a roPiection for a second term
by the uso nf tho public pntronngo.
Hamilton's rolution to tint Constitution Is
fiocuuar. no nun loss iiiroet agency in from
ng its chiof provisions than many of tlio other
principal porsuns who tut In tlio Convention,
and some of its provisions woro not wholly ac
ceptablu to him when framed: but it is not
claiming too much for him to say thnt it ho
had not advocated tho adoption of tho Consti
tution by tho requisite number of States, and
had not procured Its adoption by tho State ot
Jow York, which was almost wholly duo to his
influence, tho present IVdoral Government
would not have existed. Ileginnlng with tho
year 17H0. when h was only threo and twenty
years uf age. and when ho sketched tho out
line of n government strongly resembling tlio
one which the Constitution aftorward estab
lished: passing through tho torm of
is Borvieo in tlio old Congress, when
his admirable expositions of the rev
enue system, tho commercial power,
nnd tho ratio of contribution may justly bo
said to have saved tho Union from dissolution:
nnd coming down to tlio tlmo whon ho did so
much to bring ubout llrst. tho mooting nt An
napolis, and then tho general and Ileal Con
vention ,ut ull tho Status, tho whole period Is
mnrknd by his wisdom und filled with his
power. He did moro than nny othor publio
man of his time to lessen tho forco of Stuto at

the necessity for un olllolent but limited na

which now rlso to a lofty height aftor a growth
of nearly onu hundred years, that thoy wero
typli-al of ids Idea of tho union ol the States

Tlieio Is strong reason to bollovt that
nothing of the kind occurred, In thu

preceded thu duel shows that Ilnrr Intended at
nil events to draw Humllton into a quarrel In
Which It would be necessary forblm to accept I
challenge or be branded as a cowud. Burr's J
olo ground ot complaint wns that he had been
told that Gen. Hamilton had. in privnto con

It was bocuufp Hamilton would not retractor

him Inton duel. In tho nextplaeo. It is certain

from tho Arte lork Iernld of Aug.

Tho company contracted to doltvor 50,000,

000 gallons Is all that is required now. The con
trnet does not read that way cleerly. however,
and there is a probability ot tho matter being
taken into court tor n legal decision as to tho

tho contract rolating to shallow flownge. de
claring that dredging is impracticable. Tlio

thu company will shut it otT until a decision is

threw tho knlfo Into tho store. I havo just
