POLITICAL ASSESSMENTS. * Pending the consideration of the legislative bill in the House this afternoon, Mr. Townshend opposed an amendment making it a misdemeanor to assess employes of the government whose salaries are provided for In the bill for political purposes. The chairman of the committee of the whole (Mr. Robinson of Mass.) ruled the amendment out on a point of order made against it by Sir. Cannon. The Water Supply Bill Passed. DISCUSSION IN THE HOUSE. After our report of the proceedings In the House of Representatives on the bill to Increase the water supply of the District closed yesterday, Mr. Reagan opposed Its passage before steps had been taken to ascertain what,the property wnlch it was proposed to condemn would cost the government, and proceeded to argue in favor of an amendment making the people or the District chargeable with one-half of the expense of the work. Mr. Blount criticised the bill, on the ground that It imposed all the expense or Improvement on the general government iiRteud of the people of the District becoming liable for one-half of It. Mr. Speer advocated the passage of the bill, and referred to the fact that children were sickening in the public s hools of Washington tor want of .sufficient water supply. Mr. Holtnan opDOsg&tke bill. Mr. Townshend portrayed the necessity of the District for a more adequate supply of water for sanitary purposes, and defended the provisions of the pending bill. Mr. Garrison confined his remarks to an advocacy of an amendment which he offered, appropriating $70,000 for the erection of fish-ways at the Great Falls and at the damsDroDOsed to be con strutted by the bill. After a brief speech in favor or the bill by Mr. Hoge, the previous question was ordered on the bill and amendments, including one offered by Mr. Blount, providing that one-half of the improvements shall be paid for by the District of Columbia, and authorizing the District Commissioners to issue 3-fi5 bonds to such an amount as maybe required in the execution of that improvement. THE DEBATE TO-DAY. The water supply bill was called up in the House at 11:30 o'clock to-day. Mr. Cassldy, of Nevada, opposed the Reagan amendment, requiring the District to pay one-half of the expense of the improvement. He thought the title to the Improvement should be vested in the United States, and not be shared with the District of Columbia, The proper thing to do was for the government to continue to be the sole proprietor of the water works. Mr. Randall said that while the title to the water works was vested in the United States* the revenues went to the District. He knew there was a necessity for more water. On Capitol Hill the necessity for water was sadly felt. He thought, however, the District ought to pay one-half. It was a contract between the District and the United States to each pay Tialf of the District expenses, and he did not favor departing from it The equity and law was on the side of the Reagan amendment. Mr. Page, of California, asked Mr. Randall, even if the Reagan amendment was not adopted, if the District, under existing law, would not have to pay one-half of the cost of the improvement. Mr. Cobb, of Indiana, said the proposed increased water supply would be for the benefit solely of the people of the District, and It was right and equitable that they should pay for half of it. Congress, he said, had paid one-half of the Interest on the debt, which an extravagant board of public works had saddled on the District, and for future Improvements of all kinds the District should be compelled to pay Its half. To ask the United States to pay all of the proposed.lmprovement was neither equity nor justlce,and was positive injustice to the constituents of other communities. If the amendment to comoel the District to pay onehalf did not prevail, he would vote against the bill. Mr. Buckner said the pending bill proposed the supply of water to the District at the expense of the United States. He thought It was too much of a good thing to ask It Mr. Blount was surprised even that the government was called upon to pay half. The District ought to pay it alL * Mr. Urner closed the debate on the bill. He said he was surprised at some of the opposition to it. It ought not to be forgotten that the mains, reservoirs, Ac., all belonged to the United States, and the District had no interest whatever in tnem. He quoted a law of 1850 and 1853 directing a wholesome supply of water to be brought into the District under the direction of the President. His reminded the croakers who ioughtthe bill that, of the great number of public buildings directed to be erected all over the eouiltry, not one of them had suggested that the people living in the cities where such buildings were to be located should pay one-half the expense. The United States always should have the title to the water works. It was so intended in 1859 when the present work was completed, but It Was not then thoeght that the city would grow as It has. Mr. Urngr read the report of the water committee of the Citizens' Committee of One Hundred. Mr. Urner then explained how the revenues ol the District were applied, and in wfeoee custody they were held, and the method of drawing money from J lie Treasury; Con^re?"? one-tall cl the expenses of the Dlstrlct^governmeBt; but the extension of the United States water works has nothlne to do with the District government. Mr. Neal said the people Of the District paid a full price for every drop of water they received. The revenues derived from water rents were applied to the payment of water bonds outstanding. Mr. Timer, resuming the floor, favored the amendment of Mr. Garrison for a tlshway at the Grt-at Falls of the Potomac. The first amendment to the bill, submlttel by Mr. Garrison, to build a Ilshway at the Great Falls, was adopted. Mr. Reagan withdrew his amendment, accepting an amendment otfered by Mr. Blount. Mr. Blount withdrew his amendment, directing the District to pay one-half, and accepted the following substitute, offered by Mr. Hewitt, of New York: MR. HEWITT'S AMENDMENT provided further that the cost of the said Improvements shall be annually computed and stated by the Treasurer of the United States and charged to a capital account on the books of the Treasury, and that the interest at the rate of 3-65 per cent thereon shall be annually Included In the District tax levy and paid Into the Treasury of the United States, and that any surplus of water rents over aud above the expenses of maintaining the works and appendages and paying prior interest charges now existing shall be paid Into the Treasury of the United States and credited to the capital account thus created until the same shall be Anally extinguished. TllK BILL PASSED. The amendment of Mr. Hewitt was then agreed to, and the bill passed without a record vote. ??- ?-?? THE CREDIT IS DUST It I EL.. Examination of Jlr. Klaino Before the Hoiinc Foreign Affair* Committee? He Contradicts 3Ir. ICandall. The examination of Mr. Blaine was resumed before the House committee on foreign affairs this morning. Chairman Williams called Mr. Blaine's attention to passages In the printed testimony of Mr. Robert E. Randall, relative to the Credit I ndustrieL Mr. Blaine in substance stated that Mr. Randall, who was an utter stranger to him (witness), first approached him In February, 1881; sent his card to witness In the Sehate chamber, and began a conversation on the assumption that he (witness) was a member of President Garfteld's cabinet. He (witness) waived the assumption, however, and as far as possible the conversation. Witness had no reason to believe that Mr. Randall would Intentionally misrepresent; but no such conversations as he (Randall) had testified In regard to ever took place. He (witness) did not look upon Mr. Randall as the person with whom to discuss the affairs of the Credit Industrlel. The Count DeMontferrand, a gentleman of high standing, was their direct representative, and both he and Suarez had been very persistent In pressing the objects of the company upon the attention of the State department. Mr. Blaine said he told the Count de Montferrand that the action which he desired the government to take was wholly Inadmissible. He Informed him that the government did not desire to obstruct the company If their object was to aid Peru. Mr. Bla'.ne then read a letter addressed to Mr. Evarts and signed by Count de Montferrand and Suarez, In which the plans of the company were plainly stated?namely, to pay an Indemnity of 550,000 pounds sterling per annum for a term of years, and also the bondholders of Peru, whose claims amounted to 45,000,000 pounds sterling. MR. BLAINE FLATLY CONTRADICTED many or the statements made by Mr. Randall, lie said he (witness) never asked Mr. Randall If Mr. Hurlbut, as minister to Peru, would be acceptable to his company, and never Intimated to him (Randall) what Instructions would be given to Mr. Hurlbut or to Mr. Trescott. lie asserted most positively that the State department never for a moment countenanced the idea of an American protectorate. The Idea was never taken into consideration In the Instructions which were given to Mr. Hurlbut and to Mr. TrescotL In fact It never had a lodgment in the State department. Such a policy would have been a terrible blunder on the part of this government. MR. BLAINE'S OPINION. Mr. Blaine took occasion to say that, in his opinion, peace would ere this have been established between Peru and Chili had not Mr. Trescott's instructions been revoked; that a permanent peace never will be secured except through outside pressure; that either the United States must Interv ene or let some European power Intervene; that In his (witness') opinion the United States will soon be compelled to take much more decided ground than he (witness) took; that the U.S. cannot play dog in the manger and say: "I won't Intervene, or let any one else either." . ENGLISH INFLUENCE. Mr. Blaine was asked If he desired to make any further statements, and replied that he desired to say in reference to his former testimony before the committee that In his allusion to English influence he did not mean the English cabinet, but English Influence In the sense oflBrltish Interests. He thought the action oUhe British minister at Lima, Sir Spencer St- John, was reprehensible in the highest degree and such as?if he had been an American minister?would have cost him his position. He then stated that the conduct to which he referred was the preparation by Sir Spencer St. John of a bogus treaty between the U. S. and Peru, which he sent to the Chilian govenment and which greatly incensed them asralnst Mr. Hurlbut and the U. S.; that Mr. Hurlbut called him to task for it, and he replied that It was merely a Joke. "This reply," said Mr. Blaine, "Mr. Hurlbut properly characterized as a very frivolous and Indecent way of getting out of a dishonorable transaction." MR. BLAINE CORKECTS HIS TESTIMONY AS TO THE DEMOCRATIC PRKSS. Mr. Blaine then added: "There Is one other point In mx previous testimony upon which I desire to make a correction. I appear to have spoken of the 'dirty democratic press.' I should have said, 'the dirty portion of the democratic press,' because all the better elements of the democratic press, In discussing this subject, have taken high and patriotic ground. If I had said the dirty portion of the democratic press and the dirty portion of the republican press I should have expressed myself correctly, and 1 now desire to put that sentiment on record." The committee adjourned till 10 o'clock to-morrow, when Mr. Trescott will be examined. Washington News and Gossip. uovernment receipts tod at internal revenue, $210,575.12; customs, $758,106.21.

Tliore was but a small number of spectators in tlif Criminal Court room at 10 o'clock this morning when the star route trial?under the Indictment against the I)orseys, Brady, Minor, Valle, Kerdell and reck, for conspiracy?was resumed. Among the new faces In the court room was that of Senator Saunders, of Nebraska, who sat by Mr. Merrick. Mr. TngersoU asked the court If It was understood the evidence so far offered proved any overt act. TTNINQ TnK FIPPL*. " No, sir," said Judge Wylie, who remarked. In effect, that this was, as ho understood It, Intended to show that there was some subject for conspiracy. "Then," said Mr. Ingersoil, "they are only tuning the fiddle now. They haven't struck a tune yet." Mr. Totten having objected to evidence relntlng to the act-* of one person. Judge WyUe remarked, " Nobody Is to be found guilty In this court unless the guilt is brought home to him." 44 Well, that Is some comfort, your honor," said Mr. Tottem 441 think the counsel might have found tnat comfort before,"' said Mr. Merrick. FENATOK SATNDEKS A WITNESS. Senator Saunders was then called to the stand an 1 sworn. The petition from citizens of Nebraska regarding the route from Kearney to Kent (34.1:9) was handed to him by Mr. Bliss, and he identified an endorsement on the bacu as having been made by himself. He could not recoliect who 1t was that presented the petition to him. Assuming that the paper was endorsed by him on the tith of February and presented to the department April 6tli, he w ould not have kept the paper in his possession so long. He did not renumber having seen the words "Schedule, thirteen hours," In the petition. He did not write them, and thought If they had been there they would have attracted his attention. AN 44 EXPEDITION" INSERT IN TnK PETITION. A discussion having sprung up as to the relevancy of certain questions, Mr. Wilson remarked on the nature of the mall service and the absurdity of asking, for Instance, for a dally mall on a 48 hours schedule. Mr. Bliss said the government proposed to show that when the petition was presented by an agent of the contractors It contained no word about expedition, and between the time Senator Saunders [ placed his name upon It and the time when It was t presented to the department, the words asking for expedition were inserted in it. THE NEXT WITNESS was Charles H. French, who testified that he resided In Loup City, Neb.; was a sub-mall contractor, and on the 5th of June, 1878, made a subcontract with John M. Peck, by his attorney, J. W. Dorsey, on the route from Kearney to Kent. The witness Identified a duplicate of the sub-contract produced from the flies of the Post Oflicc dedepartment. The terms of the contract were that French was to be paid $700 for one round trip per week; $1,300 for two round trips. 11.800 for three round trips, 13,:**) for six round trips per week, and in case of expedition French was to receive 65 per cent of the amount received for such expedition. The witness said the pay of $700 a year was contlntlA/1 111 tV>o 1 of A# A f lr>rt/* A " >?* vuiuvu Mil tuc 1DV ui AU^uai^ 1049. D1UUO AUgU9l| ] 1879, he had received $1,587.40, as he did not make ' trips clear through. lie received payments from ' John R. Miner as agent for the contractor. H-> generally made a trip from Kearney to Loup Cny In twelve hours, ana had never changed the time since he began the service. He had never heen directed to expedite nis time;from Kearney to Loup City, and had never received any 65 per cent lor expedition. The witness said when he began service on the route he employed five horses and two men; from Loup city to Kearney he employed three horses and one man. In August, 1879, when the trips were increased he employed ten horses and three men, two horses being required to go to Cedarvllle. He did not add the horses because It was required In order to carry the mails faster. The witness helped circulate the petition to get an increase of mall facilities on the route. A copy of It was sent to witness by John M. Peck, and witness took it to Mr. T. 8. Nightingale, who prepared the copy in court, the original having been blotted by the spilling of a bottle of Ink upon it. The words "schedule IS hours" were not in the petition when witness circulated it or when he gave It to Nightingale. The petition when it came to him was in the same handwriting of the letters he had always received about the service, signed "John R. Miner," his replies being directed to be returned to "Lock Box T14," Washington. Witness was never asked by any of the defendants how many horses were required to carry the mails on the route. The witness had never seen the affidavit of John M. Peck, that 6 men and 14 animals would be required to carry the mall on a schedule of 13 hours. At half past 12 o'clock a recess for half an hour was taken. AFTER RECESS. Upon the re-assembling of the court Mr. French was recalled to the stand, and Identified a number of letters that passed between John W. Dorsey & Co. and himself. The first letter produced, bearing date in 1878, Messrs. Ingersolt, Chandler and Totten objected thatihe letters were written prior to the amendment of the Revised Statutes, under which this Indictment was laid. The amendment of 1879 changed the law regarding conspiracies as to the degree of punishment. Judge Wylie said as to conspiracies the range of testimony was very wide. They were receiving evidence connecting the parties together in business relations. For the purpose of showing the relationship of the parties he thought it was competent even if It referred to acts prior to the passage of the law. WITNESSES BEFORE THE GRAND JTRT In the star route cases were sworn to-day as follows: C. S. Crocker, Daniel R. Collins, Erastus Woodruff, R.
