Tiikue is notiiictr emitted from the Berlin
congress that justifies nny prediction as to
results. The Bta'iracnU of the proceedings
are trueum, intended (o influence market or
to create a sensation in tbe line of new.
The Baltimore Sun states the case pre
cisely correct when it says Ibat "General L.
B. Ilorrigaii, a coitbern man and a Federal
soldier, has b?en nominated for criminal
jude by tbe Democrats of Memphis, Tennes
see. He was nominated over some of tbe
ablest and most popular lawyers of that city."
Up tbe sevei senators who are to investi
gate Stanley Mathewe, two Allison, of Iowa,
and Ingulls, of Kamas we-p the tellers on
the part of the s nate at tbe miscount of tbe
electoral votes in joint convention. Two
others Edmunds, of Vermont, the chair
man, and Iloa', of Massachusetts were
members of the eijh!-to-seven commission.
Mathews knows what he is about.
Bob IngersolL is reported to have uttered
the following Inawaable remark: "Now in
regard to the Potter resolution I am in favor
of it. If I was Hayes, the moment Dennis
confessed, I would immediately have demand
ed an investicat 03. I would never hold a i
eat by fraud. If fraud has been committed
let the Democratic party displace IIaye and
Wheeler." Now it is in order to suspend tbe j
posse comitatus restriction and call out the
army and navy. Bob must be suppressed.
A dispatch, from Berlin states that the
private conference between the Russian,
Austrian and Eogls'i jlnipotentiaries, which
took place yesterday evening, lasted two
bourp. without arriving at any result. They
had tbe Bulgarian LnrU question under con
sideration. The congress adjourned yester
day, to resume its sittings Monday or Tues
day. Cable dispatches yesterday were with
out reliable reports as to what the congress
has accomplished, as umal.
A cuRKESPONDEST recently writing from
Paris pays the following compliment to an
article of Memphis manufacture, also to cot
ton yarns manufactured in southern Statts:
"I have lying before me a hank of thread
made by the 'Clement attachment,' ia Mem
phis. Tbe thread is manufactured by a short
process directly from the seed, without going
through ' the saw-sin, press, compress, and
consequent breaking up. The thread is said
to bo much stronger than that made of cotton
that has gone through the processes just ad
verted to. Ths supariority of southern yarns,

State convention organized to-day, with Gee
L. Waterman in the chair, and nominated
W. H. II. BingJiam for governor, Jerome W.
Pierce for lieutenant-governor, and George
E Koyce, of Rutland, for treasurer. A reso
lution congratulating the country on the res
toration of home rule in the south, and the
overthrow of the military combination brought
about in response to the demands of the
national Democrats; and demand retrench
ment and economy in Federal and State ad
ministration; strict accountability of all offi
cials; honest payment of the public debt;
home rule and no Federal interference in
municipal or State elections; a just and equit
able revenue tariff; one currency for all and
a gradual substitution of greenbacks for na
tional bank bills. The resolutions further
state that in view of the overwhelming ma
jority for the late candidate for President, the
Democracy of Vermont resolved that the
thanks of the people are due to the men who
originated tbe present investigation of the
electoral frauds, and that the revelations al
ready made before the committee criminat
ing the secretary of the treasury and the Re
publican senator from Ohio, leaves no room
to doubt the wisdom of tbe investigation, and
while they would sanction no assault upon the
official title of President Uayes, they urge the
prosecution and punishment of all who aided
the frauds by which the Presidency was
wrested from the Democracy.
The Missouri Creenbaekers.
St. Lons, June 20. The committee on
platform of the Greenback State convention,
in session at Sedalia, Missouri, after eight
hours labor, reported a declaration of princi
ples this morning, embracing nineteen reso
lutions. It provides that the party shall be
called tbe National-Labor-Greenback party.
It demands the repeal of the specie resump
tion act, and the issue of absolute money in
greenbacks equal to gold and silver. That
all bonds now subject to redemption be im
mediately redeemed ia absolute money equiv
alent to coin, and the Federal constitution
must be amended so as to limit and restrain
congress from exempting any property,
stocks, lands, or credit from taxation, and
from granting all subsidies. The repeal of
tbe election law passed by the last legislature.
The reduction of Siate and municipal offi
cials' salaries, and the enforcement of the
Shaw law. It deprecates the exemption of
United States bonds from taxation, and all
doable taxation on debts secured by mort
gages or otherwise; the system of intemoi
revenue taxation; Hceuse upon mer
chants, traders, or manufacturers tor goods
or stock on hand, that operates as a double
and extra tax. Denounces the pres
ent system of convict labor. Fa
vors such changes in the public school
system as will establish mechanical and com
mercial schools in connection with the pres
ent schools. Favors improvement of all
western navigable waters, and urges that the
general government build, own and control
the St. Louis and San Francisco railway. It
demands that each sex shall receive equal
pay for equal work, and the aorogation oi an
laws that do not bear equally upon labor and
m't!il and nrpes the adootion of measures
insuring health and safely to those engaged
in mining, manufacturing or building pur
suits. It opposes the introduction ol" Chinese
labor, and pronounces against fclrikes, revolu
tions and all violent measures for the relief
of labor." It favors the enactment of laws
giving mechanics and laborers a first lien on
all description of their work for their full
wages, and finally invites the co-operation of
all honest citizens in the following language:
"We cordially invite all patriotic aad tree
citizens of this State who may subscribe to
the foregoing resolutions, to abandon all old
parties, and unite with us in establishing a
new party of the people to deliver them from
slavery to the money and corporate despotism.
To secure to labor its just reward. To trade,
commerce and credit solidity and security.
To reform all abuses of all administration of
public affairs. To remove f,be uuruens or ex
cessive taxation, licenses and impositions.
To inaugurate a system of American absolute
money, and secure to the people and their
posterity the blessings of civil and religious
liberty tor all generations.

Washington. June 20. The secretary of
the treasury has issued a circular calling at
tention to the four-per-cent funded loan of
the United States, now offered by the de
partment in denominations, tor coupon bonds,
of $50. $100, $300 and $1000, and for regis
tered bonds, ot $50, $100, $500, $1000, $5000
and $10,000, at par, and accrued interest
to date of subcription in coin. The
bonds are redeemable July 1, 1907,
and bear interest payable quarterly on
the first day of January, April, July and
October of each year, and are exempt
from the payment ot taxes or aunes u uw
United States, as well as from taxation in
any form, by or under State or municipal or
der or local authority. Upon receipt of lull
payment, the bonds will be transmitted free
of charge to the subscribers, and a commission
of one-fourth ot one percent, will be allowed
upon the amount of subscriptions. The com-
r " .... i . l l I . ,1 1 1
become the financial agents ot we govern
ment and depositories of ths public moneys
received on the sale of these bonds, upon
complying with sections 51 and 53 of the
revised statutes of the United States. All
banks, bankers and persons are in
vited to aid in placing these bonds,
and can make their arrangements
through the national banks for the deposit of
purchase money of the bonds. The proceeds
of the sale of these bonds will, until further
notice, be only used in the redemption of five
twenty six per cent, bonds of the United
States under the refunding act. As soon aa
the four per cent bonds ara paid for by cer
tificates of deposit of sucb public depositories
or otherwise a call will issue maturing with
in ninety days for the redemption ot the six
rvr cent, bonds, and the money received for
the four pe' cent bonds will remain on de
posit until such call matures. Payment tor
the bonds may be made in coin, coin certifi
cates, certificates of deposit of the govern
ment depositories, called bonds, coupons
maturing within thirty days or in currency
drafts in New York in favor of the secretary
of the treasury, which will be received at
coin value thereof at the National bank of
Commerce of N- V.rk. Any payment in
excess will be ret : -v ith commission. All
coin and currency .iiufts on New 'iork
should be forvarded directly to the depart-
merit bv subscribers cr fheir airents. Thi
circular continues: "Tbe favorable state cf
the money market indu-s the secretary to
press upon the people this loan.by which they
can obtain dnpct trom tbe government a na
tional bond of the highest credit and sanc
tion, exempt from taxes, and payable, princi-
Dal and interest, in coin. Lvery cit;z?n
of the United States is interested in the suc
cess of this loan, as everv sale of these bond
enables the government to save one-third of
ha interest on an equal amount of the out
standing debt. To redeem these bonds
should be the storehouse for the savings of
the Deoole. No facilities or advantages wilt
be given to large subscribers. It is to the
interest of the public that the bonds
should be distributed in small
sums among the largest number of
our fellow-citizens. Subscriptions to the
amount of the loan to the bonds now re
deemable would make an annual saving of
f $,961,632, and such subscriptions can now
be made without withdrawing frcni circula
tion any of the money of the people. All
blanks or forms or information needed will
be furnished by the department without cost."

New York Times, 18th : All the govern
ment employes in the sub-treasury in this
citv have received a neat little circular ra-
(itiestioc a contribution of one per cent, of
their several salaries for political purposes.
This is the first experience of the kind which
they have had, as it has been thought proper
heretofore that the office through which the
bulk of the fiscal busiaet-s of the government
13 carried on should be exempt from political
influence, and conducted On careful business
principles. As a rule, appointments there
have been made for fitaess, removals have
occurred very rarely, and only for cause, and
political assessments have been unknown.
This being an era of civil-service reform, it is
rather a bad time to introduce a precedent
of which such bad use may be made. It is
of the utmost importance that the sub-treasury,
in which fidelity to du'.y and personal
responsibility are to the highest degree es
sential, should be kept free from the hopes
and fears and the uncertainties by which the
public service has been demoralized. The
circular aforesaid emanates fiom the secre
tary of the Republican congressional com
mittee at Washington, and may be meant as
an invitation rather than an assessment, but
it will inevitably be construed as in a certain
sense authoritative, and it would be better
if everybody in the sub-treasury were lef t to
make voluntary contribution tor the aid of
the party ,as he sees fit.

The Homeopaths.
Put in-Bay, O., June 20. The institute
still continues its session, and additions to
those in attendance are constantly Deing
made. Reports were received to-day from
(h Hnnrtments of surcrerv. obstetrics, gy-
umologv and rasdology. optlialmanology and
otology, psychological, medicine, microscopic
and anatomv. and rhvBColorv. ihese Uu
reaus all presented valuable papers, showing
oritnnal research on the part of the members,
and earnest and valuable work.' A report
was presented from the committee on legisla
tion, which referred especially to the estab
lishment of State boards of health, and the
Wialation of the Dractice of medicine. The
discussion showed plainly that whi'e th
homeonathic school was in favor of such leg
islation as would guard human life, and pro
tectjthe people from disease-producing causcF,
and the nractice of medicine by ignorant and
incompetent persons, they were unwilling to
submit to any legislation which discriminated
in favor ot one school as against tne omers,
and had succeeded in defeating such legisla
tion wherever it had been attempted thus far.

St. Paul. Minn.. June 20. Judge kel

rendered a decision to-day in tbe suit of
Wm. D. Andrews. George H. Andrews, and
Nelson Green against George B. Wright, to
rpcover damages for an infringement ot the
natent nnon ''drive-wells." and for an in
junction to restrain tbem from the use of the
without Davment of a royalty. The
defenses were aa follows: First, the re-issue
was obtained by fraud, and not for the same
invention as the original; seconQ, wani or
rmvplrv nrior to discovery and use: third,
ttllptred invention for a result or effect, and
not patentable; fourth, dedication to the
public and abandonment. All these points
were overruled in the decision, which ordered
a decree for the" complaint, and a reference
to ascertain damages. Circuit-Judge Dillon
concurs. This decision is regarded as very
important, as these wells are ery abundant
in this State, there being one thousand in
mp counrv. HennDin. all of which must pay
a royalty under this decision. Probably hun
dreds of thousands of dollars are involved in
the mnes alone.

II I G IILT IMPORTANT TO HOT SPRINGS PEOPLE
In the sundry civil appropriation Dili, as
reported from the committee ot conference
last night, there was a section providing for
the continuance of the Hot Spnng3 commis
sion, which was created in mil to appraise
and sell the valuable government reserva
tion which embraces those springs in Arkan
sas. The surprising discovery is made to-day
that this section was almost entirely omiiieo
in the enrollment of the bill in the office of
the clerk of the house of representatives for
the President's signature. The only portion
of this section enrolled was the last half of
its last sentence, which was attached to the
suciinn innrminff aru entirelv different sub-
ject. Its omission wholly defeats the obijt
of t.h iv. and. ine opeiations ol the Jiot
Springs commission will have to be suspended

their possession. Very large pecuniary in

WASHINGTON, June I, lOlB.
To Hon. John Sherman, Secretary oiihe Treasury:
Sin At a late hour to-day my attention
was called to the discussion yesterday in the
senate of the proposition to pay the expenses
of tbe commission sent to Louisiana by the
Prpsulpnt in thesnnag of 177. When 1 ac

had undoubted authority to con
stitute it, as well as to order
the navment of its expenses, which
was done by an officer detailed irom your de
partment, charged with that duty. Since,
fcpwever, the senate, by a majority vote,
tabling the proposition reterreo to, nas ques
t'umpil the leMlitv of these disbursements, I
cannot consent that either yourself or the
hanker who furnished the tund.s should he
chargeable with such portion of the amount

fifth of the general amount. If you will have

TIIF. WOBK UP CONGRESS.
Summary of the Provisions of the Prin
cipal Acts of the Session now
Closing A Sew Tariff Aet Is
Consplenonaly Absent.
Special to the New York World.
Washington, June 17. T'.i n
ment of congress to-morrow, af'r i
of very exciting debate, if not o
tant or wise action as might have u. i ;
sired, makes of interest a review of its wurk,
or rather of the most important of its work.
At the extra session, called October 15, 1877,
but one or two bills of any conseq'ipnci were
passed, the principal one being t i -- g
appropriations for the support ' j
for the year ending June oJ a
failed in the forty-fourth congre- .it
of the senate's refusal to accept the iciion
prohibiting the i-se of the army in the south
ern States. The bill, which was ultimately ap
proved November 21, 1877, omitted that sec
tion, but included a provision that cavalry
regiments might be recruited to 100 men in
each company, and that a sufficient force
9hould be employed for the defense of the
Texan frontier, provided that the army's
strength should not exceed 25,000 men. The
army appropriation bill for 1878-9 leaves the
strength unchanged, but reduces tho allow
ance ior quarters and abolishes all extra allow
ance3, as those for fuel and feed. There are
to be no promotions on the staff, nor on the
line above the grade of captain. The force
on the Texan border remains, and the posse
comitatu8 section is added, declaring that it
shall not be lawful to employ the army as a
posse for the purpose of executing the laws,
except where such employment may be ex
pressly authorized by the constitution or act
of congress; the money appropriated shall
not be used to pay the expenses of troops so
employed, and persons wilfully violating the
act shall be punished by a fine not exceeding
$10,000, or imprisonment for not more than
two years, or both. The position which the
Democrats occupied during tbe last congress is
thus approved. For the navy for the year
ending June 30, 1878. a deficiency appropri
ation act provides f 1,446,688 16 tor pay,
$311,953 53 for Seligman Brothers, etc.

$800,000; naval academy, $52,580; marine
corps, $614,000; civil establishment, $150,
000. After July 1st there will be no appoint
ments ot clerks or secretaries from civil life;
those on a cruise are to continue until the
cruise is ended.
On the financial question the first act was
that passed over the President's veto Febru

pressly stipulated by contract. To the Inter
national monetary conference to establish a
bi-metallic standard, a commission composed
of Messrs. W. S. Groesbeck, F. A. Walker
and Reuben E. Fenton has been appointed.
The act further provided for the use of silver

much of the sum as is necessary to make up
the five per cent, of its net earnings payable
to the United States under the act of 1872,
and the whole sum earned by it as compen
sation for services rendered to the United
Stales, together with the sum by this act re
quired to be paid, amount to twenty-five per
cent, of the whole net earnings for the year
ending on the thirty-first of December next
preceding. The Union Pacific is to pay in
one-half of the compensation for services to
the government, and $850,000 or so much of
it as is necessary to make up the five per cent,
of the net earnings. Penalties are provided,
and the reservation of congress to repeal the
act is made.
The Indians are by the army appropriation
bill left under the charge of the department
of the interior. The act of May 27th appro
priates for the bureau tor the next fiscal year

norfc and civilizition receive $1.12j,000. of

As to the nublic lands, one act provides
that notices of contest under homestead, free

lished in a newspaper in tne county wuere
the land in contest is situated. Another pro
vides that where a person has made a settle

a homestead entry upon the same
tract, he shall be entitled to have

ing in the act having the effect of creating

date provides for circuit and district courts of
the United States at Toledo, dividing the
northern district of Ohio into two divisions.

approved April 30th the secretary of state is
