Roscommon, said O'Mahoney, suspect, is
nut an American citizen, and had not been
prevented from writing to Minister Lowell,
of the United Stutes government. He de
clared to have not oil'cred O' Mulioney , or any
American citizen, money to quit the coun

valuation, and of these '200,000 are ex
cluded from the bcnelits of the land act

must be remedied. He admitted the pro
nosal was extraordinary, but so was tbo

an amendment declaring it is inexpedient
to charge the consolidated fund with any
payment of arrears, except in form of a

said it was an evil precedent and most ob

WAsitixtiTox, May 23. Tlio reasons nl
the democrats for declining to discuss in the
Iiouse tho Mackey-O'CYinnor election con
test are stated by leading members of fho
party, among thciu Representatives Ran
dall and Carlisle, in the following words:
'There are two questions involved; first,
the forging ol the testimony; and, second,
the right to a seat under tho rules of the
house. If tlie democrats consent to a con
sideration of the case tlie republicans
will seat Mackey bv a part v vote without!
investigating tlie forgery. Tlio democrats are
ready to consider appropriation bills and
other public business, hut wi:l not consent
to try this case until a full investigation of
the lorgery is had.

THE CIIII.I-1-Eltt.VIAN Nt'IKANCE.
The house foreign iillairs committee again
to-day took up tho investigation of the Pe
ruvian company. Tho ex-ussistunt-secre-tary
of state was the only witness but all
of his knowledge had been obtained
while acting as interpreter between Blame
and tlie ugent of the Credit Industrial com
pany, when the latter gentleman visited
the state department in tlie ell'nrt to secure
the intervention of the United States in be
half of Peru. The gentleman, though rep
resenting tlie Credit Industrial company as
its agent, bad only sought intervention in
the interest of humanity, not of his c.oin
tiuny I' pon all other points Mr Hill was
proluuudly ignorant, lie had first heard
of the missing jftipers alter ho left the de
partment: never saw them; cer
tainly would huve remembered the
same if he had ever seen thorn;
it was hardly probable that they would
come direct to the department without his
seeing them. Witness was asked in rela
tion to the status of of Trescott in the state
department at the tune he was annarentlv
employed by the department in connection
with the preparation of dispatches touching
Chili-Peruvian mutters, and replied that
irescou nan just returned Ironi China,
where he bad been one of the commission
ers. Pending the settlement of that matter
he was consulted in regard to the
Chili-Peruvian matter and mado a
thorough investigation und pre
pared a statement of the facts
upon which the secretary could uct. He
was specially charged with this matter in
connection with the preparation ol dis
patches, and with exception of tho secretary
was the most competent person to expl ai'n
the meaning of every word in those dis
patches. Ho was very highly esteemed in
the department, and on account cf his high
stunning anil experience as u diplomat, was
selected as commissioner to visit the .South
American states. The chairman aimotini eii
that Blaiho would again come befnre them
to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock, and tiie
com mil fee adjourned.
