THE 7IIDDLETOX FAILIKE.
Application for Appointment of a Receiver
and for an In)unction.
allegations of mrs. eliza c. hutchinson in hkr
bill fileo in court to-day.
To-day Mrs. Eliza C. Hutchinson, by Messrs. W.
B. Webb and Enoch Totten, filed a bill against D.
W. Middle!on, Samuel E. Mlddleton. George F.
Green, Janet Smith, W. P. Thompson, George A.
Sawyer, Lloyd, Boggs, D. W. Malion, Lydla
Jolly, Henry English and James A. McKenney, for
the appointment of a receiver to take charge
of the assets, property, &c., of Mlddleton & Co.,
for a discovery as to what interest they
have In certain property, for an account and
reference to the auditor, and an Injunction to
prevent the Mlddletons and Geo. F.Green irom dlspo^lng
of certain property. The bill prays ;slso that
a conveyance of certain real estate tor the security
for the in icbtednessto Janet Smith, W. P. smith,
-? Sawyer, Lloyd, Boggs, I>. W. Mahou,
fivdla Jollv, and Henry Entrllsh be declared void.
The bill sets forth that the late Hayward M. Hutchinson
did business with Mlddleton & Co.. and
fliat there is now to the credit of tlie plaintUT on
the books of the firm, as executrix, $15,(On: that she
is the M>le d-vlsee tor life of her husb md's estate;
that he had his life Insured In her favor for {30.000,
and this sum collected with others as the revenue or
the estate .mwunted to about } 100.000. After the
deat h or Hutchinson she continued to place money in
the hands of the Mlddletons to Invest, and thev
promised to Invest It. She sets fort h the failure of
the tlrrn on May 30. ISM, when they made an assignment
to George F. Green. She says she Is advised
tnat the Mlddletons used the funds placed In
their hands by her for the purpose of their business,
and so made them part or the assets.
She submits that the assignment made will
not operate to pass to the assignee any of the securltes
that may have been In the hands or
the firm at the time of the assignment,
and she is entitled to have an account of the assets
Ac., for the purpose of ascertaining whether any
and wnlch of the securities or liabilities are such as
she directed that her money should be invested In.
She further says that the debt due her is not dls- 1
puted. She states that the Mlddletons carried on a
firm In New York, under the name of Mldddleton,
Dlchman & Co., iu which the Mlddletons
had a large Interest, but the Mlddletons
retired and. the business was continued under
the name of Dlchman & Co., the lntere.-ts or the
Mlddletons being assigned to the present firm tor
the purpose or paying an unascertained Indebtedness
claimed to exist on the part or the firm in
Washington to the New York firm. S e claims
that she Is entitled to have this Indebtedness ascertains
and the munnerot assignment Invest 1-!
gated, and that the said Indebtedness should be
treated as other claims. She states t at the Mlddletons
are possessed ot real estate In the District,
which should bu subject, with other pr perty, to
the payment ol debts, and the Mlddletons should
be required to make known the real \
condition of the title to sucn real estate; j
that since the assignment D. W. Mlddleton, tor the j
purpose or securing Janet Smith and otner cml- |
ftors, has conveyed certain real property to Geo. F. j
Green in trust; that by another deed he has conveyed
to Jas. H. McKenny certain property, which,
while absolute on Its face, she charges was made
by way of security tor the payment ot an Indebtedness
to McKenny. She also states that S. E.
Mlddleton made a certain deed In ree simple to secure
an Indebtedness due by htm to S. M. siioema- 1
ker, or Baltimore. She states that the assignment
bears date May 30tli, 18?t, and that Green
failed to make a statement up to June 26th,
and that the statement he submitted was Imperfect
and unsatisfactory. She charges that he was
selected because he had been a confidential clerk
of the firm, and she Is informed and believes that
he Is not a competent person, and of no financial
responsibility whatever, and that a large portion of
the assets are ot such a character as to require the
intervention or the court

Cummlngs was called In and entered a plea of "not
guilty." Mr. Worthlngton asked that the case oe set

then be prepared to go to trial, for three witnesses

The court said tM case was not felony. By the
common law practice, and In case of misdemeanor,
the defendant could not be forced to trial, although
he could avail himself of the right ot a speedy trial

not guilty.

TRADE DOLLARS IN THE SENATESHARP
DEBATE ON THE NAVY BILL IN
THE HOUSE.
The Senate.
Mr. Harrison, from the committee on military
affaire, reported the House bill providing for the establishment
of a branch soldiers' home west of the
Mississippi. It wits at once amende 1 by substituting
the Senate bill for the same purpose, already
parsed, and as so amended was read a third time
ana passed.
On motion of Mr. Voorhees, t he House bill granting
a pension of $50 a month to the widow ot Gen.
James 13. steedman was read a third time and
parsed.
THE TRADE DOLLARS.
The Joint resolution introduced yesterday by Mr.
Cameron (Pa.), directing the secretary of the Treasury
to redeem $10,000,000 worth of the trade dollars
at their face value was laid before the Senate.
Mr. Miteliell and Mcl'liersou briefly urged the
redemption.
Mr. Mcl'herson was, however, opposed to limiting
the redemption to $10,000,000. He thought every
trade dollar ought to be redeemed.
Mr. Morrill said there had been $3f>,000,000 of the
trade dollars Issued, and it would cost the government
$5,000,000 to redeem t hem. He moved to refer
the resolution to the committee on finance.
Mr. Cameron called Tor the yens ?nd nays.
Mr. Morrill's motion was agreed to, and the resolution
was referred accordingly?veas 36. nays 20.
The House bill relieving from the charge of desen
ion soldiers who served until the expiration of !
their term and are improperly charged with desertion,
or who for any other cause are uuproperly j
so charged, was parsed.
Also the House bill amending the 72d article of
war. It provides that any general officer commanding
an army, a territorial division or a department,
or a colonel commanding a separate department,
may appoint general courts martial when- !
ever necessary; but when ver any such commander
is the accuser or prosecutor or any oillcer uu.ier his
command, the court shall be appointed by the
President.
THE NEW YORK BAKES.
Mr. Butler called up his resolution directing an
Investigation Into the condition of the New York
banks, adding to It a clause authorizing the lnvestigaung
committee to sit during the recess of Congress.
Mr. Morrill moved the reference of the resolution
to the committee on finance, which motion was 1
agreed to?yeas 39, nays 1?.
THK RIVER AND HARBOR BILL.
Consideration of the river and harbor bill was 1
then resumed.
The I&ouse.
THE DISAGREEMENT ON THE NAVAL BILL.
Mr. Randall (I'a.) submitted the report of the;
conference committee on the naval appropriation i
bill, announcing an Inability to agree.
The explanatory statement which accompanies j
the report specifies the chief Items of disagreement j
to be the appropriations for new cruisers and for t
the continuation of work upon the double-turreted
i monitors. There are otlier points of dlsiigreement,
but the conference committee thinks that these
differences could be easily adjusted if an agreement
could be reached ui>on the two Items specified.
Mr. Randall said that the Senate seemed to have
a lurking hope, which either ought to be affirmed
or dismissed by positive action on the part or the
House, that ultimately the House would recede
from its disagreement to the two Important amendments.
Understanding his duty as he did (and he
t lionght he spoke for his democratic colleague on
the committee, Mr. llutchln-o he said deliberately
| that nothing but an instruction fr<>m the House
j would Induce the House conferees to yield on these
| two points. [Applause on the democratic side.]
There was nothing that would Induce Hie present
conferees to yield on these two jKiints except a direct
vote of the Hou-se, and when that vote was
given he trusted that the House would select some
other conferee than him. [Applause on the democratic
side.]
Mr. Calkins (Ind.) said that the first proposition
present- d to the House was, whether the building
or the navy should be delated for another yea?, or
whether Congress should take another step In advance.
The Investigation had nothing to do with
the new cruisers or with the monitors.
REFERENCE TO NAVY DEPARTMENT FRAUDS.
Mr. ltandall said that the House had given every
dollar estimated for to complete the cruisers now
under consideration. He did uot want to enter upon
a discussion pro and con on t he conduct of the Navy
department in regard to the contracts made, because
it was not pertinent to the subject, and
might protract debate and delay action on the bill.
Mr. Calkins repeated that the Investigation had
no reference to the new cruisers.
Mr. Handall admitted that that was so, but asserted
that it. should have Its effect upon members
in appropriating money for a department where
there had been maladministration.
UK. CALKINS' REPLY TO MR. RANDALL.
Mr. Caiklns said that during the course of the
day he would be In possession of the recommendai
tlons which had put Wales In ttie position where he
had been. If necessary, the distinguished names of
very many members of the House and Senate i
would appear apjx nded to Wales' recommendation !
for promotion. He referred to the promptrepara- :
tlon which cre:;t Britain demanded and received 1
for any injury done to one of her subjects abroad,
and contrasted it. with the timid conduct of the
i I'niifd spates when one of her citizens had be^n
i maltreated and abused'. Under the leadership of
the gentleman, who was a prominent candidate for
the presidency, the flat had gone forth that, the
navy should not be built up until after the next
presidential election.
Alter a sharp political debate by Mr. Randall,
Mr. Calkins, Mr. Reed and others, the eonterence
report was agreed to.
THE HOUSE STICKS, AND APPOINTS NEW CONFEREES.
Mr. calkins then moved that the House recede
from its disagreement to the steel cruisers amendment.

A similar motion in regard t<> the monitors clause

Squler and Jay 11. Smith, assignee?bill to appoint
a receiver?was again before the court. Mr. Wilson
appeared for Commissioner Edmonds; Messrs.
Cook & Cole for the complainants; Mr. Sheila- j
barger for the assignee, and Mr. K. D. Mussey tor i
Squler.
HORACE 8. CUMMINGS ON COMMISSIONER EDMONDS'
BOND.
Mr. Wilson called the attention of the court to
the petition of Commissioner Edmonds, and said
he was ready to offer bond, and would present
Horace a Cummlngs as surety on the undertaking
to abide by such orders as may be made by the
court.
This gentleman the court accepted, regarding
him as amply sufficient. There Is no amount
named m the undertaking.
TOE SCHEDULE OF ASSETS FOOTING tTP SOME $7,000. j
Mr. Shellabarger presented a schedule of the
assets of Squier ? Co., prepared by the assigns,
footing up some $7,000.
Mr. cook.?"There is surely more than that."
Referring to the report of Major Richards, Mr.
Cook read that there were vouchers, the value of
which, not ascertained, amounted to from $40,000
toftiO.OOOin the office, and be claimed that there
were available assets amounting to $11,000 at least.
What they wanted was a good receiver.
0FF8R OF SURETIES FOR ASSIGNEE SMITH.
Mr. Snellabarger read from the list prepared by
Mr. Smith, showing less than $7,000 available. He
offerred as sureties of the assignee G. G. Cornish,
to the amount ot $5,000; J. E. W. Thompson $2,000
and Mr. Gunwell, of Alexandria, for the balancesay
$7,000.
OBJECTION TO ONE OP THE SURETIES.
Mr. cook said that Mr. Sheiiabarsrer's effort
seemed to be to get the assets down as low as possible
In order that Mr. Smith might be able to give <
the security. He had an objection to one of the J
sureties?Mr. Squler's having deeded his house to
hliu alter the assignment
Mr. Mussey come forward
Mr. cook.?I object to Mr. Mussey speaking, for
he has no interest here, representing as be does a ,
"summering" client 1
Mr. Mussey said that It was customary to fix the
bond on the amount of assets as they found them.
As to Mr. Gunwell be was the beneficiary under a
deed of trust long prior to the assignment.
Mr. cook.?We will look into that deed of trust
Mr. Mussey.?We hope you wllL

The court said that besides the total ot assets, 1
$11,000, the assignee has an equity of redemption In 1
the bonds claimed by Mr. Edmonds, and besides,
there is the large mass of vouchers referred to by
Mr. Richards?150,000. He would fix the asaount of i

SIR. KEI.LO?(i A WITHE"*.
ilia Testimony llefore the Springer
ttnniltce.
be denies th? statements 0? walsh and prick?
his relations with them, amd nom-oon* ectlon
with stab kol'te expedition.
Mr. W. P. Kellogg. ex-t\ 8. Senator, at present
representative in Congress from Louisiana, appeared j <
before the Springer committee to-day. After I
being sworn he unfolded a huge package of papers. (
He said he was laboring under some disadvantage j ,
because he was not in possession of CoL Bliss' testl- 1
mony. Mr. Kellogg promised to be brief, referred ; '
to the charge agaln>t him of complicity In the star
route frauds, and of the Indictment against him. ;
He said that Indictment was predicated upon the
statute that forbids members of congress from receiving
pay for services rendered In the departments,
He claimed that It was never charged that
he had used any undue influence.
uk denied walsh's tkstimont,
to the effect that he ^Kellogg) delivered certain
drafts to Walsh, and directed him to collect aud
divide the money between Kellogg and Brady. Mr.
Kellogg swore that he never attempted to influence
Gen. Brady, directly or indirectly. In relation to Hie
two routes on which the charge against him whs
found (ti.e Monroe and Shreveport and San Antonio
and Corpus Chrlstl routes).
The witness here produced the Jacket of pipers
of the Corpus ChrlsU route, anil read the endorsements,
patters, etc. Among them he read a letter,
dated July 5lh, 1KTS. from Senator Maxey, U gl:ig 1
expedition; also a sworn statement by Prloe, as to '
what Increase of force would l?' necessary to perform
the service under expedition. Mr. Kellogg
said there was no question oi the piopriety of the
expedition of that route, and he ment.om-d that in I
Justice to Senator Maxey. He next took up the i
other contract, fn>m Monroe to shreveport, La., .
and read an application from Contractor IHce for I
ex|?editlon rrum May to January of each year, a
p? rlod durlug which low water Interfered with
mail service on other route?. This application was
endorsed by Messrs. Elaiu and Kobeftson. t hen
members of Cougrcss rrom Louisiana, and also by (
W. P. Kellogg, then U. S. Senator'. Mr. Kellog-' i
said no evidence could be found anywhere that ii- i
rendered any service in getting exix-dltlon, beyond ,
endorsing this application with "I concur"and
signing his name. The witness said col. Bliss had .
said there was a "missing link" in the case, and .
that no service could be proved. j
the government offers to thick in orper to get
11is testimony against kelukm.
Mr. Kellogg said that Mr. Merrick had offered to
Price's sou to release Price from prosecution. If <
Price would make out. a case against Kellogg. and
that Anally the prosecution wrote out n statement J
which they wanted Price to swear to; that the first ,
dratt of Price's testimony as made by Prl<e was not (
satisfactory to the prosecution, and they went (
Woodward to Price to make terms with him and to j
induce hlin to make out a stronger case against
Kellogg. Thewltness claimed that throughout the
w iiole case eve rything against him was immediately
given to the press, much of the matter being "
supplied to tho Associated Press direct ly from th>
grand Jury room. Mr. Kellogg went on to read
from Price's original statement and his evidence to <
show that discrepancies existed which materially i
weakened his evidence. He thought that Price's i
desire to escatie prosecution prompted hlia unwlt- i
tlngly to implicate him ^Kellogg.) i
fkice's admissions.
The witness said that If further evidence was <
necessary he would give t he names of three or four ]
men to whom Price had admitted that Kellogg had i
nothing to do with getting the expedition. He had ?
the aflldavlt of one person t?? whom Price h id
made that admission. Mr. Kellogg claimed that !
Price made that admission to W. A. Cook. Mr. 1
Kellogg next spoke or the "animus" that had been
manifested against him; of the great services he '
had render Walsh. He said that only the other day '
tien. Kaurn said: "Why Kellogg, you ought to have
lei me sent Walsh to the penitentiary when I was
commissioner of revenue."
WAIjSH'S animus. 1
The witness next reviewed Walsh's course before ,
the grand Juries, his talk of a "grievance,"' and of i
wanting a "vindication," etc., and charged In sub- I
stance that Walsh was Incensed against him (Kellogg)
because the Utter positively refused to aid
Walsh in collecting his claim ag.ilnst Brady. This
he maintained wiaaAValsh's "animus" against him.
and he said he wanted to call attention to the fact
that in Walsh's original statement he declared that. '
the drafts were niven him by Brady, hut sulise- i
quently. after Keliogg refused to assist htm In hts 1 1
claim against Brady he changed It and chargod \
that Kellogg gave him the drafts. ;
prick's sealed envelope for walsh. j
The witness next came to the question of com- i
pensatlon received by him. He s tld he had shown 1
that he did not render any service, and. not having '
done -o. that even had he received compensation ,
there would have been no oflenseln thetransac- ;
tlon. He said his case. Involving his right to a seat ]
in the Senate, was pending In April. May and June,
lt<7?; that was the si off ord-Kellogg case. A great \
deal of testimony had been taken In Washington, (
and wus beiug transcribed. Witness and hts rttor- \
neys were getting through their labors here, pre- i
paratory to going to New Orleans to attend the s?-s- <
slons of aSenate sub-committee sent there to inquire
into the contested-election case. Kellogg. Walsh j
and Price were all living at W Ward's hotel. Walsh s <
re. :m opening luto Kellogg's parlor, it was about <
the close of the fiscal year, and Walsh had Just "t?talned
a large expedition of mall contract- Walsh <
and Price were working together to procure expedl- <
tlous on their respective routes. Walsh went away i
several times, returning generally in a lew day s. \
Before leaving on one occasion he told Kellogg Price
would hand him (Kellogg) some papers for him l
(Walsh), and to keep them until his return. During <
Walsh's absence Puce did hand witness a sealed <
envelope for Walsh. Witness kept the envelope aud
delivered It to Walsh upon his return. Witness
was now satisfied that that envelope did contain
the Price drafts, and he said that he had descrllied f
all the connection he ever had with them. The .
witness next read from Walsh's testimony in the j
star route case to show that Wa'.sn had sworn that ,
he divided the proceeds of the Price note with Kel- j
legg, and In another place that he credited Brady l
wfth the proceeds of that note. Mr. Kellogg sail
he knew a lawyer who advised Walsh that he
could not maintain his c ise against Hradv In an
open account. Then It was. Mr. Kellogg claimed,
that Walsh changed hts testimony, and said Bra 1> i <
forcibly took the notes Brady had given to him 1
from him.
the postal drafts f
were next taken up, the witness saying he was ,
prepared to show that one of the drafts delivered j
by Walsh to him (witness) was given for an entirely
different purpose from that sworn to by WalslL
The witness swore that all the money he got from .
Walsh was for a purpose entirely different from j
that ascribed by Walsh.
walsh owed witness monet. 1
The witness swore that Walsh owed him money
on transactions had In New Orleans not In any ^
manner connected with star route matters. He demand^
payment, and Walsh agreed to pay 12.000
If Kellogg would take his (Walsh's) note and help
hint to raise monev on time to replace it, saying he
needed It. Thewltness collected the $2,000 check
Walsh gave him on Lewis Johnson & Co. lie next n
day went to New York, taking a note of Walsh's c
for $2,000. In order to discount that, witness had .
to endorse It, which he did. in return for the endorsed
note witness received a check for $2.0(0, le*s *
the discount, and, following Walsh's directions, c
witness endorsed that check over to Benj. Sheckles, t
Walsh's clerk. The witness produced a certified s
copv of the check he received upou the Walsh no'e (
In New York to refute Walsh's testimony that the v
$2,000 check he (Walsh) gave Kellogg was in \
part pavment of the Price drafts. In reply to ques- t
lions, witness swore that Walsh owed nlm money ^
for pecuniary favors extended by witness to Walsh i
In New Orleans. He swore that all the money he r
received from Walsh was In payment of money {
Walsh owed him from New Orleans transactions, 8
and not because of star route transactions. The
witness produced the Price postal drafts to show t
that his (Kellogg's) name was not upon them, but (
that Walsh collected all of them. The witness *
went on to, argue from Walsh's testimony that t
Walsh could not have paid him (Kellogg) half the
Price drafts. ^ d
In conclusion, Mr. Kellogg declared that he never a
renaered any service In procuring the expedition of
the routes, and that all the money he got from a
Walsh was on account of old indebtedness from
Walsh to Kellogg. The witness accounted for fMuo a
he had received from Walsh.
Mr. Crisp asked the witness to explain the origin a
of Walsh's Indebtedness to him. F
WITHER' MONET TRANSACTIONS WITH WAIJ?n.
Witness said that just after be left the guber- ?
natorial chair of Louisiana Walsh came to him to c
borrow money, and he loaned him $5,000. The s
money borrowed was, he was toid, to buy warrants t
of Gov. Packard. Witness let him have the money
because he was a triend,aud was interested in maintaining
the administration. Walsh was also engaged ?
in the brokerage business, and had dealing with *
witness' brother-in-law, Mr. Wilson, a sugar I
planter, and In settling up accounts relating to c
tnese transactions, witness took Walsh's nuu> lor d
I
REPLT TO MR. BLISS' TB8TTM0NT. f,
After the committee adjourned, Mr. Springer j,
again placed Kellogg on the stand, to reply to the "
(nntfynwnt of Mr. Bll?, that Kellogg had acknowledged
to him that he received the money from a
Walsh bat used it lor political purposes. a
"I state," he said, "that 1 called upon Bliss; that $
was in June, m He asked me if I had received r
money from Walsh. I said I had received money q
rrom Walsh, as I have stated to the committee, and
[ mar have added that I thought It an outrage to
treat me thus. I had spent all that noner and all a
my revenues tar political purposes." u

COMMITTKK.
Hon. W. IL F.nglish. of Indiana, was yesterday
igaln before the spe<'lal committee Investigating
harges of lobbying In the House, and was qu?sloned
as to whether he had visited member* at
heir residences to urge them to support his son*
lalin to a seat In the House. He said that before
lie elections committee had reported upon his
on's case he called upon Messrs. Turner, Cook,
'ouverse and Lowry. of the committee, and talk'd
rlth them concerning the merits of his son's cas*.
le saw other members of the House also, he said,
le said It did not occur to him that there was any
Luprooriety in so doing; he believed his son to
lave been fairly elected, and deemed it not lmiroj-er
to ralrly present his case. He said be spok*
o Mr. Springer about the case, and asked him to
ee Mr. cook.
Mr. springer was put upon the stand, and teamed
that Mr. English had requested htm to ?
ook. Mr. Henley, turning to Mr. Kngllsh, said:
' Was not Senator Harrison on the floor pulling and
laullng for Mr. Peelle?"
Mr. Millard, Interposing.?" I saw him on tike floor
luring the discussion, but never saw him apeak to

" I saw him," said young Mr. English. ** Both bo

"What was Harrison there lor? for amusement?"
aked Mr. Henley.
"My seat was within three seats of where be esc,
nd I <bd not bear him talk. I challenge yon to
irove It," said Mr. Millard.
Mr. Cook said that Mr. springer and a doceen other
members had spoken to bun with regard to the oosest,
but such was the common practice In election
aaes. Mr. Springer'** interest, be said, was perianal,
as he had been intimately connected with
