Mr. Cheng Tsio Jm', tho retiring Chinese minister, accompanied by Secretary J'ayard, called atitho wbito house and took official leavo of the president. In presenting his Ieetter of recall, ha said: Mr. President I desire to express my einccro thanks, especially for tho unvarying kindness and courtesy" which I and tho members of my legation have received from your excellency and the high officers of the United Slates government residing here. These tokens of good will have gicn mo much pleasure, becauso of my conviction that they indicate a do-iro to maintain tho friendship existing between China and the United States. Tho feeling is most earn estly reciprocated by tho government ol Cninn, asd now, in taking my final leave, permit me, Mr. President, to offer to you my sincere wishes for your health and hap piness and for tho most abundant prosperity of tho great people over whom you preside. The president replied: Mr. Minister: It is always a matter of regret when tho kindly official and personal relations which have grown up between the government and representatives of a foreign sovereign are turned into a now channel by his retirement. The regret I feel that the Imperial dictcallin3 you back to China, in bidding you farewell, is made deeped by the recollection of your high personal qualities and tho unvarjing spirit of courtesy and good will you hnvo infused into tho relations between your mission and this government. The vast distance that separates China from the United States, together with the remark ablo differences in language, law s, costumes and traditions of tho two governments and their people hive not tinniiturally mado it more than usually difficult to create and maintain at all tinn's that clear, good under standing so t-s-cntial in international icler courhC. No one more than yourself has recognized these difficulties, or sought moro faithfully to overcomo tho diir-renccs which have grown out of race jealousies and tho competitions and rivalries of labor. 1 recognize and thank you for your ear nest efforts to create that good feeling be tween your country and my own which I trust will continue its good fruits to both nationalities. When you return to your own shores accompanied by the most cordial respect and sympathy of thoso who have known you during your stay with us, I beg that you will assure jour sovereign and cause your fellow countrymen to know that I and my constitutional colleagues actually represent the great body of our countrymen in offering tho most cordial and friendly sen timents towards China and desire to con duct our commercial interchange to a sub stantial, satisfactory and beneficent end. Olt, KINO USA CHANGE. William II. Forbes, president of tho ISoll telephone company, was examined by tho telephoue ine-tigation committeo to-day. Witness did not know-th it any officer of the government or member of congres had been connected with tho original company, or held stock at the present time in tho Na tional 1W1 compsny. No newspaper owned stock in the Hell compiny and the company owned no newspaper interests that he knew of. Tho examination was then conducted by Chairmtn IUgle toward the interview he had had with the president. Tho witness said the understanding was that the govern ment proposed to bring suit against the Hell company. He had thought it proper to state to the president the facts as he un derstood them. We thought tho president was proposing to lake an unusual cotirco to bring suit against our company. The Hell lawyers had expressed tho opinion that there was no authority for such a suit. Then it had been proposed to bring suit in a remote part of the country. These facts he had undertaken to lay before the president. He had pointed out to the president that it was the manifestations of the Pan-Electric association to secure a delay not to get the Bell cases tried, but leavo them untried. Ho thought the government ought not to lend its name to a scheme of tbat'sort. Hc'sbowtd that the pending government suit would be useful proceedings in other countries; they would be asked to grant stays and Injunc tions during a long and tedious litigation in tho namo of the government. "I saw that an attempt was being made to influnce per sons connected w ith the administration to use the name of the government against us, and the president did not appear to under stand tho justice of tho injunction of tho proceedings.

The sixty-fourth birthday of Genera Grant was celebrated at the Seventh Metro politan church in this city, at which Gen eral Grant, when president, was a constant attendant. The meeting was held under the auspices of the Grant Memorial univer sity, of Athens, Tenn, the purpose being to make known tbe works and objects of the institution, to the Eupport ot which the hero of Appomatox made tbe first cash sub scription, and in aid of which ho lent the influence of his name and tbo encourage ment of his word and example. Speakers of eminence took part in the proceedings, and an audience composed of distinguished legislators, diplomats and soldiers filled every seat. Justice Waite presided. Senator Sherman spoke of Grant and tLo men of tne soutn. lie considered tnc new soutn one of mysterious features more a matter of hope and expectation than realties, lie personated tho forces that broke tho old south. It was not expected that there should be a complete change in one genera tion; but now that slavery has disappeared, parties should be based upon other than questions between north and south. Aut tbe most important thing for the new south was diversity of production. With what is already at lland tho new south would compare with'tbe north in all the great de partments of productions. Tho south must work ont its own salvation. The north had tried in various ways to assist in the man agement of local aff.tirs for tho south, and he must confess congress had participated in the business, but he was freo to say not very well. (Laughter and applause.) The north could not ride the sjuth any more than Great Hritain could Ireland. The only thing tbe south wanted, and she wanted it badlv, was education. Tho man date of the nation had freed slaves, and it was her duty to educate them. It the house of representatives would second the work done by the senate and give from tho ample resources of the government some ot its fcords in the treasury, there would be ed ucation, and the country taking a long step towards rebuilding its resources. The north was ready for this consumma tion. There never was a time when tho masses of tho people felt less party spirit than now. They desired to see ola issues buried and new, living questions of the fu tuao presented in a line of demarcation be tween parties. (Applause.) Speaking of tho conditions to be hoped for in the now south by men who fought on both sides he said that first there must bo recognized in every particular tho question oftho rights and privileges between man and man. Tho time was not far distant when this would be. Iilacks and whites were inseparably mixed al! through the south, and the rights of both must bo re spected. When this was recognized univer sally this great difficulty of tho now south would be at an end. Senator Evarts spoko of General Grant's selection by George Peabody, as one of tho directors of his university. Dr. Sixnce, president of too Grant Me morial University, gave a history of the growth of the institution. A letter was read from General Logan regretting his inability to attend on account of sickness, and that Generals Hurdetto and Ncgley, who wero to deliver addresses re spectively on Grant and tho Grand Army, and Grant and the volunteer soldiers, had been called out of the city. Itepretcntativo Long, of Massachusetts, spokeof Grant as a citizen, and was followed by Dr. Nowman.w ho related set eral pathetic incidents of the general's last dajs. Ho read tho following telegram he had received from Colonel Fred Grant. Our circle is smaller than it was nj car ago, but those who remain appreciate the remembrances of tho departed one by his friends in Washington. FORTY-NINTH CONGRESS. Senate. Washington, April 27. Tho chair laid before the senate a communication from the clerk of tho house of representatives of tho stato of Ohio, transmitting a transcriptof tho testimony taken by tho committee of tnat house on" tho subject of official integrity of certain members of tho house, in tho elec tion of Hon. S. H. l'ayno as U. S. senator. Mr. Pay no at once rose and said: Mr. Chairman: No formal motion is re quired I believe no motion is needed to refer it to tho committee on privileges and elections. I dceiro to be considered as mak ing such motion if it is necessary, and to couple with it the request that the minority report may take the same courso which I submit, with a formal disposition of the matter. 1 am at present content; but I de sire to make statement to acccompany tho papers into tho hands of tho committee. The Democratic caucus for tho nomina tion of a candidate for U. S. sonator was convened tit Columbus January $th, 1SSI. I was not in attendance, but without double contest was nominated. Tho result of the first ballot wa as follows: Hooth 1, Pendle ton 15, Ward 17, Payne 4G, being a majority for tho successful candidate of 13 over all. Tho papers submitted embody tho results of tbo investigation into this caucus?, con ducted secretly for more than three months, by a committeo of the house of representa tues of tho stato of Ohio. Ho then read tho resolution under which tbo committeo was appointed, and con tinued: 1 had hopjd tho request to forward by minority of the commtteu that tho pro oeding'! should bo open and public and would have been acceded to and 1 might have been spared misrepresentation, and on misrepresentation of testimony which was so assiduously circulated , and against which. 1 have of courso defense. Tho result of tho investigation is nowhere embodied in the majority report of Mr. Donovan, but in tho reportofthe minority is found the follow ing: After weeks of delay Mr. Donovan ap peared before tho committeo and testified lhat ho knew of no fact of bribery or no act on tho part of any other person cither di rectly or indirectly. Thu fell all that tho investigation was originally based upon. Tho second report exonerates fully and completely the four members named in tho resolution under which tbe committeo wns appointed.

The senator concluded as follows: I am content to leave matters with the committee on privileges and elections for such disposi tion of it as they may find to be in accord ance with dignity and justice. I trust it will receive early attention and action. Tho majority and minority reports were referred to the" committeo en privileges and elections. The bill providing for an extension of the executive mansion was passed. It appropri ates ?SOO,000 lor the purpose. Tho following bills authorizing the con struction of bridges reported favcrably from tho committee on commerce, were passed: A wagon and foot bridge across the Wil lamantic river, Oregon, which may be avail able as a railroad bridge.

The inter-stale commerce bill was then taken up and discussed at some length, then after an executive session tho senate adjourned. House. A senate bill wa3 passed, extending for two months from April 30. 1886, tho duties of the clerk oftho late court of commission ers of Alabama claims. Mr. Hcnnett, of South Carolina, from the committee on tho ludiciarv, reported a bill to prohibit aliens from accruing to titles or owning ianus witnin tne united fctales. House calendar. The house was then kept amused for nearly an hour by an explanation of the ar bitration bill by Mr. Koran, of Ohio, fol lowed by a similar explanation b Mr. O'Neil, of Missouri, bringing in a remark attributed by the latter gcitleman that the former labor trouble should bo settled by blood. Mr. Foran denied the charge that he had ever made such a statement, and during the course of his remarks, said that Mr. Crain, of Texas, and not Mr.O'Niel, was the author of the arbitration bill. Mr. O'Neil replied that ever since he has been chairman oftho committee on labor, ho had been fretted and worried by the sore head gentleman from Ohio. The trouble with arbitration his (O'Neil's) name va: connected with it. If it had been another, a gentleman from Utiio would have been clad enough to have charge of it. The hoU:o then went into committee cf the whole, Mr. Wcllbourne, of Texas, in the chair, on tho river and harbor bill. The paragraph accepting from the stato of Ohio the .Muskinum'river appropriation gave rise to much opposition. Mr. Itcagan, of Texas, moved to strike it from the bill. Mr. Hewitt, of New York, supported tho motioafnd tho government, ho said, was becoming tbe dumping ground of all tho improfitable business of the several states. Tho states wero trying to shift tho cost of maintainanco of local enterprises to tho broad shoulders oftho people of tbo country. Ho was utterly opposed to such appropria tions. Mr. Willis, of Kentucky, said tho question cf free transportation was the question of the hour, and if by any appropriation of sU.OOU tho United Males could lree the Muskingum river he could not see harmful result, Mr. Henderson, of Illinois, opposed tho motion to strike out. Mr. Anderson, oJ Kansas, spoko in favor of an amendment, which was ruled out on a point of order, looking to tbo question by tho United States of tho Erie cacal. Mr. Hepburn, of Iowa, thought tha ap propriations in the pending bill would have litllo effect on bringing distress or relief to the country. One of tho causes of tho dis tress was the fact, the people w ere afraid of those who wero now in authority. Thero had been so much of a promise and so little of performance on tho part of tho Demo cratic party that tbo people looked to tho future with distrust. To enumcrato a few of its pledges, the people had been told es pecially, by his colleaguo (Mr. Weaver), that heretofore tho government had been run in tho interest of men of wealth and great corporations, but that now tbe people wero to bo considered in the interests As a proof of this tho gentleman had called attention to the fHCt that the president sympathized with the settlers on the frontier, who wero standing around Oklahoma, that the monopolies were in un der the rule oftho Kepublican party and that now they wero to be turned out and tho settlers were to go in. A few days ago his colleague had been impelled to say with hu miliation in his manner, that all of thoso loud sounding promises had been untrue. That the settlers wero still standing outside looking to the land of promise, which tho president's election had prevented their en tering. Tho peoplo had been told that tho volume of currency was to be enlarged, but inst ad of that, btforo the president had taken his scat, he had recommended that tbo silver branch oftho currency should be stricken dow n. With the verj iirt report nindo by tho secretary of tho treasury, that officer had recommended that all the green backs should bo destroyed. Immediately after lh.it tho gentleman from Illinois, (Mor rison) had come in with a proposition that disturbed tbe labor interests of tho country. No man knew when that would end. No man could tell where the disturbance was to cease. No man could forecast tho future. Tho motion to strike out was lost and the committee rose and tho house adjourned. Honoring their Chief Montgomery, Ala., April 27. Hon. Jeff Davis left for homo at Heauvoir, Mississippi, accompanied by his 3'oungest daughter, at 11 o'clock this morning. They wero in a special car. A committeo of citizens of Montgomery went to escort them. Their arrival'at every station was the signal for a demonstration. At stopping places between this city and Mobile great crowds gathered; tho local military companies fired salutes; children waved their handkerchiefs and shouted, and all pressed to the car to shake tLo hand cf tho man who lod thocau.j of tho south during the war times. Many one legged and one armed soldiers wero wa.ting to see him, and all had words of welcome. Mr. DavU stood or sat in tho door of the car. He was too feeble to speak, but gavo a hearty handshsko to all. 1 he train reached here at S o'clock to-night, Tho scene has never been equalled, and eclipsed the inau gural celebration in 1SC1. Houses wero illu minated and fireworks are being displayed. Artillerj- boomed and brass bands placed, while thouands mingled with the roar. The local military cempsnics and Governor O'Neil and staff were at tho depot to receive Mr. Davis. It was difficult for the carriage to make its way through tho surging mas of people. AH this despite tho rain from above and mud below. Tho oration was tho greatest of his life. Tho decorations on houses ere elaborate and the Uniteil States flag floats from every window. Ensicns were con spicuous. General J. 15. Gordon from Atlanta ar rived shortly before Mr. D.ivis and was re ceived at tbo depot by the military. Tho feeling shown Mr. Davis to-day tended greatlv to excite him. It is tbo first expres'ion of any consequence eince tho close of the war. Tho occasion is a lecture by him and an address by General Gordon ) in aid of the monument to bo erected here expected to be submitted to tho senate to- morrow or Thursday. Crops In Nemaha.

Last Saturday tho wife of Jacob Friemutb, a homesteader in Seward county, was cruelly murdered and outraged by Fritz Rupin, a half-witted German, who was dragged to death later. Rupin had been for sorno time enjoying tho tho hospitality of Friemutb. He was homo less and without friends and they had taken him in from tho cold. On the day men tioned, Friemutb was temporarily absent. Rupin overpowered his benefactor's wile and brutally outraged her person. Not satisfied with this, he bound tho bands of the lady and cut her throat from car to ear. The bruto then secured an old, rusted hoe, and w hen the woman was yelling in a death struggle, he beat her with tho blunt instrument. Mrs. Friemutli was enciente, and when discovered tho unborn babe lay a few inches from tho body of tbo mother, cut in two. Friemutb returned home on Suntfay, and when he discovered tho mutilated body of hi; wife ho became a raving maniac A neighbor in that sparsely settled region hap pened to be passing that way shortly after 12 o'clock, and found him wild with frenzy. Tho man dared not approach for fear of his personal safety, and be retreated to a settle ment somo eight miles distant and told the authorities. A party was at once organized, and they returned to the scene of tho outrage, whero they found Friemutb weltering in bis own blood, Laving killed himself with a shot Bun- . . A grave was dug and luo remains ot lue unfortunate peoplo buried. The posse then set out lor tfio murderer. and found him secreted in a small ravino . several miles from tho scene of bis diaboli cal crime, near tho Cimarron rcserve. Somo speculation was indulged in as to proper method of ridding the world of him, but not much time was consumed in do- bate. A fierce and spirited horso was so cured and saddled. One end of a long lariat was then fastened around his neck and the other extremity tied to tho pommel of the saddle. Ihe horso was then started ana amid tho shouting of men and tho crack of revolvers and rilles tho frightened animal tore away. After a run of nearly five miles tbe horso fell exhausted and lifeless. Tho body of tbe murderer was loosed and soon men camo up. Tho lariat bad drawn so tight that his head was almost severed from his body. Tho features show that he died a tcrrible'dcath. The body was leftbjingon tho prairio uncovered. The Graham Lynchlnc. Kansas City, April 20. Tho Times' Special has tbo following regarding tho Gra ham lynching: A reporter who was in the crowd kept back by the regulation guard, asked if thero was a chanco for an interview with tho pris onc. He was told that Graham was past talking. Tho qutstion was then presented if he mado any statement before death. An oracle with a shot gun answered as follows: Ho said that ho was not alono guilty ot tho murder of his wife, but that ho did not caro to say that any ono else was guilty, and that neither of the women was guilty. Shortly before 4 o'clock tho guard re moved, and the bystanders, approaching the tree found Graham suspended to one oftho limbs with his feet almost touching the ground. Hlood was oozing from his mouth and nose. His features were somewhat dis torted and he was dead. Tho body was drawn out of shapo and his clothing twisted as though several men had been tugging at hi3 legs while others pulled up by the rope and atter much industrious efforts on their part ho seems to havo died of strangalation. Tho following notico was found attached to tbo back of the coat. AltMTRABY TWICE. When the coroner is in possession of this paper Georgo E.
