' Washington, , May 7 lkte. After
Ihe routine business was disposed of, a
contest for precedence arose between
iprivita business and the Military
Academy appropriation bill, vhica
was re olved in favor o' tbe former,
rni tbe House went into committee of
the whole Mr. Crisp Ga. in the chair
oaurivate business.
The bill which gave rise to the most
interesting divusss on was one paying
5J00 to F. W. Haldemau The report
states that dur.ng the war, llaldeman,
then a boy cf twelve yars of age, de
sired to join an Ohio regiment, but
was refused a muster on account of
bis age and size. He, however, pur
cfcased a uniform and served in toe
regiaient a year, acting as a bugler
and performing scout duty. He ia
eaid to have performed gallant service.
' Mr. Bragg Wis. in a sarcastic speech
riiposed tfm bill. He ridiculed the
iaUa of aboy to youngto be mustered
in performing scout duty and d- ing
gallant service. Tlie great patr'otism
which had been displayed by the boy
setuied to have passed away and he
had become a beggar, asking money
from Uo Government. A tou h of
sentiment was added to the picture of
a battle sceno by placing in the fore
ground 'ho figure of a doud drummer
nov with hn drum beside him I!ut
it was onl sentiment In reality the
drummer boy at the beginning of a
battle could bo seen breaking the
head of his ibum and run r ing
to the rear to do hospital so-vice. One
oi the most glorious memories of the
war was of tho noble w. men who be
came nurses iu order to alleviate the
sufferings of the soldier, but now these
women wen found coming to tho War
Claims Committee begging that their
gratuitous services should be coined
into dollars and cents. That knocked
oil the sentiment out of the thing. He
wanted some of tho rich memori s of
the war preserved. He did not want
them all brought down to dollars and
Mr. Weaver la. admitted that war
pictures were very deceptive, but
wore deceptive than the picture o'
the dead drummer boy was that of
the officer with epaulettes, leading the
charge, sword in hind, singing out,
"Come on, men!" If there was a
humbug in American military history
i' was that portion which represented
the commissioned officer leading the
charge on the enemy's works. As a
rule they were wh re their orders and
the rules of war required them to be
in a safe place in the rear, while the
private soldier did the fighting, shoot
ing and dying.
Mr. Johnston IrH. maintained
that a lad, though he might be too
young to be mustered in, could do
good service in a regimeut,and in
stanced the case of two boys in his
regiment who had been with it at the
battle of Richmond, Ky.. and who had
performed their dnty gallantly. They
did as much lor their country as did
tiie man who le the iron brivU rnd
who now attacked a boy who hud
bared h's breast to save his country.
'The gentleman from Wisconsin had
attacked ihe nurses in the army. If a
poor woman had given her services to
her country and no, with health
shattered and means gone, asked the
country to do someting for her, Mils it
in t as honorable for the Gore nment
to help her as to r ise the pension of
a genral's widow from $30 to $50?
Mr Bragg inquired where this brave
boy ha 1 bared his breast. He had
. Mown his bugle somewhere as a scout.
Had the scouts that served in the com
niand of the fentleoian from Indiana
heralded their coming with bugles?
Did its scouts movo with a brass
band? If that had been the practice
of the command it should have hud
some officers of tho regular order to
teach it its duties. ' There mas no oc
oiision for all this t lk about odic-rs.
The gentleman from Jowa (Mr.
Weaver) wanted to know who had
ever seen an officer lead a cha ge. He
(Mr. Bragg) had seen the gentleman
who followed the fit-.ni and bars who
bore commissions as olli crs coming
down in advance of t'eir l ncs lead
ing their men plumb against ihe
musketry and carrying works at the
point of the I nvonct. He had seen
oiliceM who followed the ftars and
stripes who did not say: "Go in, boys;
I nni a little lame, but you will prob
ably fce rep'ilsod and I will be here to
reutivo you." The army he bad
served with, had officers 'who were
not afraid to fight. Tt.esa officers the
soldiers h:ii had confidence in, end
when bo heard men, who said tvey
had been soldier?, take every oppor
tunity to abuse officers, ho was led to
tbe belief thut they had bo'onged to
the squad 1. 1 camp followers. vnat
was that tremendous battle at Rich
mond, Ky.? What was th record of
it? What was gained or lost by it?
It was oneof those skirmishes between
ontlyiru troops where here and there
a shot was fired from tin t icket, and
the troops rallied buck on the center,
and tho horns were sounded and
d'lirns beaten to move upon "Johnny
Keb." an 1 when they moved,'1 Johnny
Keti hud gone.
Mr. Johnson commended to tho
gentlemen from Wisconsin the read
ing of the military history of his
country. Tho battle of Richmond
had lasted f r ten hou'S, and for the
number of troops engaged it had been
as severo a battle as had been fought
(luring the war.
Mr. Bragg -How many men fell?
Mr. Johnsto-i I have n t got the
flgires here. There were thousands
of them. There were about 9000 men
rnpaged on the Uiinn side and about
I2,i'0il or 15,000 were with Kirby
Continuing, he repelled the ch rge
that be hud ever abused the office s

officer's reputation, but he had tried

Mr. r.rairg Was it not a fact that
nearly all the command to which you
belonged was captured at Richmond?
. Mr. Johnston-A great many were.
Mr. Brag.: And was not tli- bal
ance S"nt hack to Gen. Wolford to be
drilled? I.!iuh'r.
Mr Johnston -In that battle we
were subj i ted to many humiliations,
but no humiliation So great as to be
drilled by the gentleman from Ken
tucky (-r. Wolford) -The General
was a brave man, but I nev rsaw him
have bis own troops under command
in mv hie. f Lauglito-. It is a re
markable spectacle for a man who
claims to be a Union soldier, to have
had some sympathy with the Union
estate, now at this late day to gloat
over a Union defeat.
Mr. Wolford Ky. rose, as he said,
to reply to the unjust insinuation
made by the gentleman from Indiana
(Mr. JoLnston). 11- had commanded
a regiment, brigade and a division,
and he had never been ashamed of
thmor they of him. Ho had led
them in a hundred battles. He had
never drilled for dress parade, but he
had drilled to fight. Some of the cav
alry that had run away at R'chmond
had been sent to liim, not to be
drilled, but to be disc plined. They
had been disciplined, and in many
fights they had shown themselves gal
lant men : they had run no more.
A vote was t lien taken on an amend
ment to tbe bill, but a number of its
opponents refrained from voting and
the committee, being left without a
quorum, rose.
The House then took a recess till

They left the Stato of Ohio in order

Wednesday night last burglars broke
into the store of M. Marks,, but. her,
and carried off his cash drawer wi h
the contents. They probably did not
get a great deal of money. It appears
that the jobbers then carried their
booty out Washington street, a short
distance, to an unoccupied residence
owned by Mrs. J. B. Moore, where
w oy shMMl jn tl plana r.'hd rjt lire

burned in the floor of the porch and
the side of the house scorched. The
alarm works of the cash drawer were
found on tfie spot. Whether it was
intended to burn tho house or not is
not known, but if a heavy thunder
shower had n t come on jus1 at that
time the house would certainly have
been destroyed. The flames were
seen by a lady liv'ng oppo-itc, who
was awakened by the thunder, but she
paid no attention as she supposed it

think they have a clew which will rt

London, Mav 7. Thos. liolton,
member of Parliament, a rote a letter
to Mr. Chamberlain asking him if he
would support the rome-rnle till on
its second reading provided it be con
sidered a rtimnle affirmative of the
principle of home rule, leaving the
question of the ietntion of Irish
members open for consideration in
committee. Mr. Coaniberlain replied:
"If Mr. Gladstone will main
tain the imperial Parliament as
the supreme representative authority
in the kingdom 1 will gratefully ac
cept tho concession and vote for the
second reading of tbe ill. Bu' I am
unable to find in Mr. Gladstone's
manifesto any su'h assurance. Ho
asks us to grant Ire and the right to
manage her own arlairs, bu'. if
geogr phical consideration must yield
to na ional sen inient then the prayer
of the Protest mts for separate con
sideration dese-ves equal attention.
The fate cf Ulster lies in its own
hands. If it is earnes; ia refu ing to
intrust its liberties and fortunes to
the Dublin Parliament, fellow sul
jects in England and Scotland will
never sutler the Ulsterites to be co
erced into submission. I have main
tained my pos tion against the bill as
proceeding on lines of separation or
colonial independence instead of fed
eration. I have cons dered the
full representation of Ireland in
the Imperial Parliament too im
portant a d-tail to leave for tho
committee. The question must bo
settled on tho threshold of the discus
sion. The extension of the home rule
to Scotland and Wales depends on the
maintenance of united representation
of three countries in one supreuiB imr
liament leading to a fir lire federation
of tho great dependencies of the
Crown and the welding of them into
a mighty and harmoi iou9 empire.
Mr. Gladstone's alternative has ren
dered necessary anomalies and
restrictions which no true Liberal
will app-ove. He has produced a
halting measure which offers no rea
sonable prospect of a final settlement
and which ia certain to be tho fulcrum
for future agitation. He has bronght
us within a nieasurablo distance of
civil war, threatetdng the ultimate cie
ation of a foreign hosiile nation who e
reconque t is aetui.l y con cmplatcd
as a possible eventuality by the pro
moters of the measure. So long as
uncertainty prevails in matters of
such p ramount interest, it is impos
sible for those who value the unity of
fie empire to affirm the p inciple of
t e bill."

Aristocratic authoresses are incteas

We appreciate to tho full what nobil

for theG. riuan lit rutu e of the nine

w hich ar stocratic autho-esses are
nowadays advertised. The number o'
novels and romances vrittesi by
countesses and ba one ses bus n: lute

implying that all the novels of baron
esses or countesses are necessarily
worthless ; on tu crontrary, the ma
jority of them are readable enough.
As a ruN, however, i can be en that
the authoress, before she began to
writ , had 'eadagrent many novels,
chiefly Englis i, and that si.e km ws
more bout ertain sports tnd the
so ial life of aristocratic houses than
abo .t the most vital questions of
human society, approaching which
she makes man evident blunders.
On the othe1-hand the lady ge-erally

we knesses, espec ally those of
outard appearance, rnd she
dis .days, sometimes rather t o
much, her acquain'anco with
the history of art and literature
The latter "is chielly the case when
she has lor to Italy on her wedding

friends do not send their productions

Xkw Yokk, Mav 7. A apeiiul to'e-
gram to Ilmdlrttl' indicates that the
general trade situation is bss favora
ble than a week ago. This is due
niiinlv to the partial paralysis of busi
ness at Chicago, as well as to th dis
turbed industrial situation in Milwau
kee. Cincinnati. St. lxius, Baltimore
and elsewhere. At Chiejgono busi
ness of a wholesale character worth
mentioning has been dons and
merchants generally are awaiting the
settlement cf the labor troub'es A
noteworthy incident is the determina
tion of the Chicago metal and furnituro
works and lumlier yard employers to
shut down rather than to accede to
wht they regard as unjust demands.
A similar spirit ii displayed at lxnia
ville. The movement of merchants
at leading cities East and Wost have
been checked ny the industrial
