where it touches aeon the effort to se-
- cure the appointment ofyoong Rogers
i llouse ehcrician. it is alleged
that tienttors Gailand and Harris and
Geo. Johnetin buBied tbemtelv per
aond.y to accomplish this. Mr.Yonng
put up teleph nein his committee
room, and this, siys the report, was
"pretty near t a Congreuional in
doremeiit." The report then trea's of the sale of
S at r'ghts to sub companies, and
Bays: "1'beBcll .Company eued the
eubcompany. The Pan-El ec trio de
clined to defend, on the ground (hit
it bad no money. The stock bcldcre
would not refund wbat they had di
vided, although it was the money of
these very companies. And then they
went to toe Department of Jnetce, at
tbe hfad of which was one gen tk man
who tad some of this money in li
pneket, and asked tha goverrmpnt to
take up and cairy on the litga ion."

have constraint d it to ('o so.
The nvestizations of the commlit?e
have demonttratsd tbat the pietersi
that the Pan-Elctrin penile a psar-d
befoie the Interior D.'i artnaent aj pri

merely stalking horses to cover the

The ogre'menta betureen the Paa

and it is CDarged that the suit w is iiot
wanted to be tried, butlobe"s ttM."
They were so sure of this that they
agreed beforehand about the div sum,
and the opinion each bad about the
readinefs of the o'her to accept "his
price4' was euch thst Ihey e ipula'ed
twice over tbat neither should bi tray
Li rival.
Kaferring to. the Washington con
ference of the two ranks it is a l(d
tbat they wished toiecall their fi'st
application to the Department of Jut
tice without leaving a "trace" end
then -to get the Attorney General,
either in ptnon or by one of h's snb
ordinateB, to order the euitwilh ut
jny reference and without any more
than a pro forma inquiry of officers
likely to be quite ign rant of all tele
phone litigition. Tbie was their ob
ject. Thevnet about it and they ac
comp'ished it." But if they concealed
tbolr ways from the public they did
not dipguiee them fiom Attorney
Ireneral Garland. Here reference is
made to bis leiter to the President to
support the assertion.
Touching the interview with the
; Attorney General, the report finds
tbat "aom.eth.ing took place at that
interview which left all parlies in tbe
certainty that a new applicition would
be made; that it would be made
through the District Attorney; that it
would be pressed by Mr. Goode when
it came there, and tbat he would pass
' on it promptly and without a refer
ence to tbe Inferior Department.
That was wbat the parties, by thtir
own statements, went to Mr. Gar'acd
on tbe 31st of July ti obtain." It is
stated tbat the :Pan-E'ec'ric and Na
tional Improved Companies stopped
their efforts tu secure a government
uit lor three weeks, nniil Mr. Goode
returned to Washington and Mr. Gar
land was about to leave. According
to Mr. Young, tbey did not want to
come to trial even if tbey bad a de
fense which would succeed. They did
not want to break the Bell patent, bat
to bleed it ; cf course it wts the dnty
of the Department of Justice tortop
Bach a sobeme certainly not to let it'
Eelf be dragged into it.
Touching the AtterneyGene ra', the
report holds that it wts h s duty, ron

The report then recuis to the sub
ject of tbe opinion fumisbed by the
Attorney General.. It charges tbat it
was written with a view to deceive the
peop'e in tbe Southwest, and that it
wasashrevd view; that tbe peop'e
so believed, but he, the A'tamey
General, did not. The report goej on :
"The but that can be said of bim is
thst he lent himself to this scheme

If he was not active in it himself he
Buffered his name and influence to be
u ed by others. He was then only a
Senator of the United States. He was
next placed at the head of the Depart
ment of Justice. The man from wtm

would easily have found a course for

his associates, who knew him and
speculated on his character, were cer
tain they would get what they wanted
and ihey cid. His intelligence
told him there wera two thirgs he
should not permit ; and then his Vic
ci'lat'ng will let him argue that be
might- stand aside and see his office do
them for his benefit. He had not the
streusth to deny what hia assoc at s
asked eo: ti retain tbe stock ami

Thera is g.o.l renaon to litlieve, says
the reporr, and we fed cir strained to

Toe plea is that the parties con-.
cerr.ed did not think they were doing
wrong. But a government which
txptcU to be respected, cannot roimit
such thirgs to be done, such influence s
to be sought for, or tuch personal in
taiets to exut and avail. It is not

The rpo.t e3timatid the expense
of the suit if tried on its merit;, at not

Mr. Ha'e Mo. makes a minority
repoit in which he says tbat, while he
concurs in many of the stttementjand
conclusions of that portion of tbe com
mittee repressnted by Chairman
Boyle, yet he cannot concur in every
thing it conairs. "Touching the for
mation of the Pan-Electric Company
the evidence shows conclusively," says
the report, "tbat it was sparely spec
ulative adventure, and there is no evi
dence to be found tending to prove
that tbe gentlemen connected with the
Rogers ever anticipated or ever Intend
ed tbat their official position would or
should be used in any way to affect
legislation or otherwise to further ad
vance their enterprise. It is not be
lieved tbat tbe immense mesa of testi
mony will show that there was any
thinir In the obiect. motive or intent of
any of the gent emen, which was in
any sense immoral, dishonest or in
consistent with ths duties of public
men cr citizacs.
As to the opinion of Attorney Gen
eral Garland, it is held by Mr. Hale
that it wa like that of any other attor
ney employed by an individual. It
does not appear that it was intended
to further the sales of stock without
dibcloaicg his relations to the company,
nor inai any pemou waa uei-eivcu vi
misled by it.
The report finds tbat the President's
order dismissing tbe Memphis suit
was eminently proper, but at tne same
time it is said that there is no evi
dence even tending to show tbat the
Solici or General was tctuated by any
impulse or nnwoithv motives, even il it
it be held tbat he was mistaken as to
fine cf tbe legal questions Involved.
His mistake In ordering the suit witn
cnt referencs to the Interior Depart
ment was one wh'ch tbe ablest and
moat onecientious oibVials might
make, and doubtlees have made.
. An to the Altoroev trenerai s con

tbat (the evidence is overwhelming

he hated he could not coaie np
to the d gni y ot the oicas'oo. He
was gratified asd tilled with piida to
learn Iroin theprei-ideiit and teacher I
what prosperity Lad exuted within
the w.l s of the institution tlii'ing tbe
past year. He alluded in ll.terin
tirm to Mr j. Peyion of ll.ze huist as
lending the power of hnr inllii?nc9 in
the esiahliihm.nt of thia institution.
He said that while his speech nvglit
full short in lime raepoiU it would
have tli merit of being f.om the
heart. Ths speaker then went into a
review of the past, coming down to
the present day and thowing what Ihe
educational advancement bal been,
particularly among the women of our
coun'y. Hs Mid tbat our county had
nc t escaped till dsvsstiting Influences
of the recent rtvo'ution, as had no
country ever done. The effects
of the war wou'd never bs
eiased. The people of the South
ought not to apologise for it, nor for
get it, but thst we should not
engender nor keep a'iva thatteotional
prejudice which were ths results of
the political person in our land. Ha
was glad to know that Mississippi
now possessed an institution where
our women ooald be educated like our
men. Tbe women could now help
our men in building up the waste
places in our South land, help to en
gender right principle and rUht
thought throughout this country.
We, as men, had yielded to the mer-cile.-B
tide of ill fortune and had in
the recent war been outnumbered, but
we still poessised a consciousness of
the rtctitude cf our couree. Sires
this reversa a new order had been in
trodncad and now we would have to
depend fcr awistmica npnn the
wouim. He had not despaired of tbe
Kepublie but we would have to re
cover from tfe war's demoralization
nndagin raine Ihe standard lowered
by its devastating inlluenco among u i.
Io carry out this end we would all
have to eombii o and raise the s and
urd of cduca'ioii to restore riht p in-
cpio aiiu mouirtu oiu;'! :ha

spirit of educat'oa, as pionounced by
' men of Europe ami Americ, to wit:
Lord Paeon, Burke, Cnriylo, Maciubiv,
William Penn aod Wastiicgton. He
