There seems to be more reason to hope that the whele truth in regard to the notorious district safe burglary oonepiracy will come out in tho investigation by the house judiciary committee than has be fore existed. Nettleahio. in his confes sion to District-Attorney Wells, corrob orated the testimony of Michael Hayes, one of the men employed to plan the safe burglary, and who was examined, by the special committee of 1S74, and additional missing links are reported to have been supplied by the confessldn of another of the employes of the conspira tors. There is, it seems, too, a woman in the safe-burglary business. This has not been published or publicly suspect ed until now. The sergeant-at-arms is on her track, and expects to have her here in three days. For prudential reasons her name cannot now be given. This woman is said to be the missing link that will convict the professional burglars who did the miserable j on witn the mysterious persons who, sitting in a darkened room, with pebbles in their mouth3 to disguise their voices, conduct ed tho original negotiations with Mike Hayes.

Adopted. Senator Cameron TPa.! sent up a slip from a newsiaper charging that several of the senators kept private secretaries, who Were paid as clerks. As one of the senators mentioned, ha denied the truth of tho article. Senators We3t and Logan, whose names were in tno article, both de nounced it as an unmitigated falsehood. Senator Edmunds road from the isaiti- more uazctie a uispatcn stating mat the judiciary committee were holding back the house witness bill, while Sen ators Coukling and Logan were looking up authorities for defeating it to save Borne of their friends who were mixed up in the whisky frauds. ie said as a member of tho committee, he felt au thorized to say that not one particle of influence from any person or source whatever had been brought to bear on the committee in relation to tms bin. Senator Thurman, as a member of the same committee, said he had taken the bill up out or 11a turn. Senator Conkiing said there was not an iota of truth in the statement. Tho time was passing,.!! It had not already gone by, when the people will not be pulled and deceived by such abusive articles. The time will come when such abusive articles of misrepresentation will be iustly considered as a conspiracy and defamation against our institutions themselves, and the question would arise, what country would next try tho experiment of a government of the peo ple, for the people, and by the people. . . , 1 til 111 L 1 senator jjogan saiu ue uiu uut kuuw that such a bill had reached the senate. When he did and should seo it, he would advocate it or oppose it, as he thought best. It was charged that he waa afraid some of his friends in the whisky ring would getj hurt. He had no friends in the whisky ring, he had never traificed in a gallon of whisky in his life, never visited a Ulstillery, never owned a dollar's worth if stock in one, never had ono of hi3 friends in the frauds, novor knawof )ham Ml he saw it in the papers, noverbad one of his friends indicted in the whisky fraud3. Oae man whom he recommended for a posi tion had been Indijted, and many a man' has a friend whom be has recommended turn out badly. In short, be pronounced all the statements concerning him as in famous lies, and no man dare stand up before him and charge him with the3e things to his face, and only cowards skulk behind corporations and news papersmen never did. The morning hour expiring, tho sen ate resumed consideration of senate bill to provide for and regulate the counting of votes for President and Vice-President. Tho bill was discussed by Sena tois Thurman, Christiancy, Frelinghuy sen, Johnston, Howe and Morton. The latter said that if it was necessary to have an umpire at all, the safest and best way was to refer the disagreeing vote to the supremo court of the United States.
