A Caustic Condemnation of the Ohio Senator?Trouble About Patronage. Senator Quay, the "silent man." now talks freely and is even voluble in his expressions. Not on matters general, but on Ohio specific ally, and he goes for Senator Sherman in a very vigorous manner. "I consider Mr. Sherman's actions," said he last night, "as discreditable and dishonorable, and when I am found doing anything for Mr. Sherman again tho people of the country will know it." The trouble all arose over offices. Both Quay and Sherman had candidate* for the position of deputy commissioner of internal revenue, and it looked as though there was going to be a col lision?disastrous to both?when Sherman's elorjuen-'e, it is said, persuaded Quay to with draw his candidate. Then Wilson, of Ohio, got the place, but not before an agreement had been made, the IVnnsylvaiiians allege, by the terms of which Sherman was bound to support Frank Gilkeson, of Pennsylvania, for the solie torship of the internal revenue bureau. Q;tay was away for a few days, and when he returned h? was almost paralyzed at learning that Al photise H&rt,Sherman's candidate, had secured the place which Quay had promised to Gilke son, hence Quay's wrath against Sherman. WnAT SKSATOU SUF.UMAN SAYS. Senator Sherman was steen by a Star reporter this morning and bo said that tie failed to understand why Senator Quay should in ike i persoii.il attack on him. The tender "f the position of solicitor of internal revenue was made to Mr. Hart while ho (Senator Sherman) was out of the city, and he know nothing -bout it until he returned. He had not broken faith with Senator 'Juay, for be hail not <isked lor Mr. Mart's appointment after the '.greement was entered into. "If the Senator felt Aggrieved," "aid Mr. Sherman, "he might have coin" to ute and we might have settled the matter without any dis sension or difficulty. I have always regarded Senator Qunv as a personal friend, and 1 iuu still his friend. I would be the last man in the world to say one word which would be calcu lated to hurt Mr. Quay's feelings. As I under stand it. this appointment of which he com plains was made at tho solicitation of Mr. Butterworth and Mr. McKmley." fevf" The Evf.sinq Si au circulates in the city where printed a larger number of copies in proportion to population than any paper in the world, and its circulation in Washington is greater than that of all the other daily papers in tho city added together, it verifies its claims by affidavits and by opening its books to the inspection of those interested. Some other papers boast largely, but they give no figures. ?. THE NEW SIOUX COMMISSION. Gen. Crook, Hon. Charles Foster and Hon. William Wurner Appointed. Gen. George Crook, U. S. A., Hon. Charles Foster, of Fostoria, Ohio, and Hon. William Warner, of Kansas City, Mo., have been ap pointed by the President to be commissioners to negotiate with the Sioux Indians for the pur poses provided in the act of Congress approved March 2. 18S9. The compensation is $8 per day and expenses. The Secretary of the Interior has appointed Irvine Miller, of Chicago, secretary and dis bursing officer of the commission. The law un ler which the commissioner is appointed authorizes them to negotiate with the Sioux Indians occupying the great Sioux Indian reservation in the middle southern por tion of Dakota for a cession to the United States of a portion of the reservation, the re mainder to be divided into separate reservations. Whatever agreement is made with the Indians must be ratified by Congress. This is the largest Indian reservation in the country, and contains 21,.1'J3.12S acres. " There aro some 24.000 Indians located there. Under an act of Congress of April 30. IMS. the Secretary ot' the Interior was instructed to negotiate with these Indians for the cession of their lands. A com mission was uppointed consisting of Cr.pt. Pratt, U.S.'A.. Rev. .Mr. Cleveland and Judge Wright. Tliey visited the various tril es of the Sioux In diaus but failed to get the assent of two thirds of the Indians to an agreement to sell tbe lands for 50 cents an aero. The Indians wanted ?71.25 and the negotiations failed. This new commission will meet in this city on the 6th of May, when they will receive their in structions from the Secretary of the Interior before leaving for the west. TWO CONVICTED MURDERERS.

The non-arrival of the Monongaliela and the Brooklyn at their desitnations gives rise to no apprehension at the Navy department. The former vessel sailed from San Francisco Feb- 1 ! ruary 21st.. bound for Samoa, heavily laden with coal and stores. As she proceeded under sail, the journey could hardly be accomplished within two months, unless she met with very favorable weather and winds. Tho Brooklyn is expected daily at New York.

Ills Resignation Accepted, to Take Effect ?t Once. First C ontroller Durham severed his connec nectiou with the Treasury department to-day. He tendered his resignation on the change of ad ministration. and it was accepted by Secretary Windom to-day, to take effect at once. There are several explanations for this action. The one generally accepted by those supposed to be acquainted with the inside facts is that the first controller ha# taken a position on several offi cial matters entirely at variance with the views of the present administration. THE IMMEDIATE CAUSE OF THE CHANOE is due to a personal misunderstanding between Attorney-General Miller and First Controller Durham in regard to the accounts of Mr. John j L Davenport as supervisor of elections in New j lork. The latter recently presented vouchers ; Aggregating *3.200 for "cxtraordinarv e\ pe rises'' incurred during the lust presidential j election. These were being examined by the i first controller, and lie signified his intention of ; disallowing them. He h.nl several conferences with the Attorney-General on the subject, which resulted in an open rupture between the two officials so much so that the first controller 011 J-iiday last ignored two requests front the At toiney-General to call at his office. The Dav enport accounts were then t:i!ien out of his hands and turned over to the Attorney-General, where they now are. WHAT feECHETAKY WINDOM SAYS. Secretary Windom sr.id this afternoon that he had accepted .Mr. Dnrh.tin's resignation in . th*j ordinary course of business, not because of any fault with the hitter's official conduct, but I because of several newspaper articles reflect I ing upon the administration, which are said to | have been inspired bv the first controller | J hese attributed ?entiment? to the first con | trailer, which, it true, must have made it un ] pleasant for luni to continue in office under ex isting circumstances. SHOT IX THE liEU. An Affray which Resulted from a Sun day Game of Crap. Yesterday morning, about 1 o'clock, a col ored hostler uameil Win. Green, who is em ployed at Ivy City, was taken by the officers of the first precinct to t.he Emergency hospital. He was found on Pennsylvania avenue suffer ing from a pistol-shot wound of the left leg. The ball had entered the fleshy part of the leg I below the knee and passed out near the ankle. I Green, who evidently did not care to give the police any information about the shooting, said I tint he was crossing the Avenue near 4'.; street i to see two men fighting; that one of them shot nun and both men ran off. The police did not uelieyo his story bcctnae the pistol shot wis j not heard on the street by any on^. HESULT or THE INVESTIGATION. Police man Jordan, ol the sixth precinct, in vestigated the case and arrested a negro named ( has. Scott as the man who did the shooting. He claimed that the shooting was done in self defense; that they were iu a house on Penn sylvania avenue near 4street. where a num ber of men were playing a game of ??crap;"' that after losing ?w3 they had a dispute and he shot Green in s> lf-defeuse. The prisoner was taken to the Police Court this morning and charged with assault and batten- with intent to kill. 1'lie case was continued because Green was not able to appear. THE LAW AS TO THE TRACKS. Messrs. Parker mid Dwyer Quote the Commissioners Against Capt. Symons. Messrs. Parker and Dwyer were on hand at the District buildings this morning bright and early. They had an answer to Capt. Symons' report (printed in Saturday's Star), which they submitted to the Commissioners. Thev say: Referring to the report of Capt. Symons on our various letters of complaints as to illegal tracks in South Washington, we wish to call j your serious attention, as well as that of the j public, to the fact that we have asked nothing but what is just and legal, and bear out our statements by the following quotations from your report to Congress, dated November 15, lss7. Said report is signed by Messrs. Webb. Wheatlev, and Ludlow. On page 57 you sav: " 'In the case of the steam railways, the oc cupancy of numerous streets and a multiplica tion of grade crossings, alike dangerous to life and limb, destructive of public property inter- j ests of great value, inimical to private rights, I mid opposed to public policy as in conflict with I t.ie rights and necessities of a modern cpmmu- ! liity,'they'have in some respects put them selves in direct antagonism thereto bv an un- : lawful expansion of their holdings and the oc cupancy of public space far bevoud their char ter rigiits and privileges.' In speaking of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad vou sav. ami your remarks are applicable to the Baltimore "and Potomac railroad company, that -people will put themselves to much trouble, inconvenience, I and expense to avoid peril to themselves and' their families of crossing a steam railwav track i in leaving or reaching their homes.' ' Again ! you say, -this brief statement of the facts in the case make an exhibit of local conditions which would not be tolerated in anv portion of a modern community.' ?'In speaking of the Baltimore and Potomac railroad company?page 5!l?you say: -It does not follow, however, that, because the services of a great private corporation are necessarv. due regulation of that service ami the restric tions of privileges to such as are needful thereto and in conformity with the public requirements should be omitted. * ? ? But die occupation of public space to which it is not entitled, in the crossings of streets not authorized by law in the expansion and multiplication of side tracks and switches, and in particular iu the unlawful use and occupation of public streets as freight and storage yards, to the obstruction of public travel and the great detriment and annoyance ol private rights, the road has ex hibited that tendency toward the protection of its own interests, Ac. May we be allowed to ask why are the Commissioners, you. appointed and paid a salary it not to exert vour authoritv and retrain these violations of law, wbi-h you state in writing is a fact. "We also quote from the decision of the L lilted States Supreme Court, delivered bv Mr. Justice Miller April 20. iftoo. an opinion which we and all thinking men will hold, is of more ! weight and consequence than the opinion of ' Capt. Symonft, who may be wtll versed iu engi ueering. but cauuot be expected to be as learned ' in law as such a body qf men as compose the i I lilted States Supreme Court. This opinion is included iu the report of the Commissioners above referred to. On page 109, the court savs: it is a somewhat novel idea to sav that the railroad company can use the streets as the company likes or their business demands. It also calls attention to the fact that Congress has been very careful in directlv. speeifieially and minutely saving how the tracks shall be laid and upon what streets. Page 112 it savs sec. 073: -No railroad shall be built under the provisions of this charter until the route and Uniiini of such road have been approved by Congress.' ' "Capt. Symons makes the remarkable state ment that By virtue of certain acts the con trol of streets was vested in the board of public works and that the same power passed to the present Commissioners.' Let us refer to page II of the same Commissioners' report and see what Mr. A. G. itiddle, the attorney for the District of Columbia, says, in speaking of steam railroads: -Congress created a board of public works, to which it gave entire control of the streets, for the purpose of keeDing them in repair and for no other purpose; that the purpose of repairing limits and controls the grant.' A new servitude on a street is not a Re pair. The board has no power to impose one and as it could not do so itself it could not per mit another; again. -The power to authorize the use of a street by a railroad was not con ferred on the board of public works nor their successors, save in a special instance.' "It is now simply a question?will yon re spect the decision of the Supreme Court, your district attorney's opinion, your own report, or will you take in preference the opinion of one who is not appointed to decide and Interpret law for the District of Columbia. His argu ment its to ug very poor, unsupported by law and one which might be suitable for a railroad lawyer who, failing to make a case, is crying for mercy to save expense to his client, not bv lawful means, bat by the power of might."
