A Dull Day in the House, the Calm After the Free Biker Storm. . , ANOTHER CONGRESSIONAL WEEK BEGUN Washington, March 28. In the Senate to-day a bill to Include Lot Xo. fiS, Block 89, Hot Springs, Ark., in the publlo reserva tion there, was passed. Among the bills re ported from committees and placed on the calendar were the following: Appropriating $100,000 for a public building at Pierre, a D.; to secure the introduction of domestic reindeer into Alaska. Mr. Morgan offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the President for the correspondence with the Argentine Republic on the subject of reciprocity, and for information as to arti cles exported thereto from the United States on which the United Stales requires a 're duction of the customs duties imposed by the Argentine Republic so as to make re; ciprocity fair and equal. The Senate bill !o allow 30 days leave to employes in the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was then taken up and discussed. Air. Sherman said there was some reason why annual lurloughs should be given to men in regular, permanent employment tinder the Government, but none why it should be given to men employed on piece work. Why Mr. Test Opposed the Bill. Mr. Vest was opposed to the whole sys tem. If it were applied to private life it ould virtually stop employment through out the country. He wanted the professed friends of the workingmen those who un derstand bow to manipulate the labor vote to understand that they wound find the pas sage of the bill a difficult campaign experi ment. Mr. Hale remarked that the workingmen of the country had no interest in the matter. They were not at all concerned in the move ment. It was all the other way. In passing the bill, tbe Senate would not be legislating in the public interest, but legislating for class interests and against the workingmen. After further discussion Mr. Hale moved to lay the bill on the table. The motion was defeated Teas, 16; nays, 33. The vote in detail was as follows: Yeas Messrs. Allison, Berry, Cockrell, Coke. Glbon, of Louisiana; Hale, Hoar, Jones, of Arkansas; Hansom, Sawver, Stock bridee, Vance, Vest, Washburn, tVhlte and Wllson-16. Nays Messrs. Allen, Bate, Butler, Call, Cameron, Carey, Chandler, Colquitt, Cullom, Davis, Dawes, Dixon.

Stanford, Stewart, Tnrpie, Yilas and Voorhees 33. An Amendment Quickly Agreed to. Mr. Hale in order that the Senate might see what was before It in the matter, and what would be irristibly demanded, offered as an amendment the insertion of an addit ional section making the provisions of the law apply to aU regnlar employes of the United States whether they be employed by the year, the month, the week, or the day. The amendment was agreed to, without a division, and then the bill was recommitted to the Committee on Education and Labor. House bill to amend the act of August 6, 1888, authorizing the construction of a bridge across the Mississippi river at Bur lington, Iowa, was passed. Senate bill to establish a railway bridge across the Illi nois river at or near Havana, III., was passed. Mr. Vest, from the Judiciary Committee, reported a bill to fix the terms for holding court in the Eastern district of Texas, and it was passed. After an executive session, the Senate adjourned. A Dull Day in the Hotuo. Although the news had gone forth that the Committee on Rules would not to-day report a resolution for the consideration of the silver bill, the House galleries were filled with spectators, and there was an air of anxiety pervading the members in the Chamber. The Speaker laid before the House a communication from Representa tive Joseph McKenna. of the Sixth District of California, informing the House that he had sent his resignation as Representative to the Governor of California. The com munication was spread upon the journal. The Speaker also laid before the House a communication from D. D. Donovan, ot the Sixth Ohio District, stating that on page 2030 of the Congressional Record he was recorded as voting in the negative on Mr. Burrows' motion to lay the bill(silver)on the table. He was not in the. hall when his name was called on this or any other roll pertaining to the silver bill. As his physi cian; Dr. Hazen, had given positive orders that he should not leave his room, he was obliged to write instead of making an expla nation in person before the House. Ine Speaker stated that the correction would be made and the communication spread upon the journal. On motion of Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, a resolution was adopted calling on the Secre tary of the Treasury for information as to whether the present capacity of the mints was sufficient to execute the authorized coin. Mr. Blount, of Georgia, from the Com mittee on Foreign Affairs, reported the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill. Committee of the whole. The floor was then claimed by and awarded to the Com mittee of the District of Columbia. After the passage of several District bills the House adjourned. RAIDI AND HIS LOANS. More Spicy Testimony In the Investigation of the Pension Office Attorneys and Employes Who Kept Knnnlnj I. O. TJ. Accounts with thoEanm Family. "Washington', March 2S. G. . Lock wood, a patent attorney of this city, for merly Chief Clerk of the Interior Depart ment, was the first witness called' by the Pension Office Investigating Committee, to-day. "Witness told of a request that General Raum made to him for a loan of money for a lew days, to help him out He could not loan the Commissioner the money himself, but tooc him to Mr. Thompson, the President of the National Metropolitan Bank, who he thought might accom modate him. Mr. Thompson refused to accommodate the Commissioner because of some personal feeling against him (the Commissioner) on account ot the latter's refusal to promote a clerk in the Pension Office that he (Mr. Thompson) and other persons, including Senator Plumb, had asked him to promote. Mr. Thompson agreed subsequently to lend the money to Mr. Lockwoo, who in turn loaned it to the Commissioner. The Commissioner dis claimed to him (witness) that he had any feeling against Mr. Thompson, but said he would soon have a large number of promo tions to make, and would consider the case. The loan was subsequently paid. A Bank President's Testimony. Mr. John "W. Thompson, the President of the National Metropolitan Bank, referred to by the previous witness, testified that he knew General Raum, but not intimately. He detailed the circumstances attending the request for a loan. He had told Mr. Lock wood, the attorney,, that he had no feeling in the matter: that he had not much confi dence in Raum, and that he was a good deal of a politician. He (witness) had expressed to the Commissioner the hope that if it was consistent with his duty he would make the promotion. He did not know whether Mr. Lockwood spoke to the Commissioner about it or not at the time, as General Baum was in the office, bnt out of hearing. "Witness refused to give the name of the lady clerk whoid promotion he had asked for. She said subsequently that she had not been pro moted, and hod been treated a little roughly by Green B. Banm, Jr. "Witness stated that he had said he had no confidence in General Baum. The witness declared that he did not seek to compensate or bribe General Kaum to secure the promotion. "William H. Barker, formerly Chief of the Becord Division of the Pension Office, was the next witness, He said there had been charges preferred against him while in the Pension Office of borrowing money from employes and not returning it These charges followed him to the Treasury De partment, where he had obtained a position, and he resigned. "Witness said the entire amount of money he had borrowed in "Wash ington was 5620, and he had lost $12,000 in speculation. He had received, he admit ted, information from "W. "W. Dudley in re gard to stocks, on which he nan actea. Telephoning to Dudley at' All Times. The witness also said that persons in the Pension Office -had spoken to him about iford. one of his assistants, using the office telephone after business hours, one of the persons to whom he would talk being "W. V. Dudley. Mrs. Pithian had once offered him (Barker) money in return lor promo tion. "Witness reported the matter to Green B. Raum, Jr., and Mrs. Pithian was not promoted. Witness said he had bor rowed $50 from a clerk named Donohne, whom he had made a section chief, Dono hue getting the money from,a clerk named Morse. The note not being paid, Donohue wrote witness a letter during office hours saying that unless the money were paid im mediately, Morse would have him (Barker) arrested. "Witness paid the money and im mediately reduced Donohue to a clerkship, (but without reduction in salary) for in subordination, in writing such a letter dur ing office hours. After a good deal of ques tioning the witness said Gscen B. Raum, Jr., probably got a part 'of the 550, as he and witness were borrowing money back and forth of each other. Thomas Farnett,an attorney and formerly an employe of the Pension Office, was the next witness. He told of the ciroumstances attending his discharge and his efforts to secure a reinstatement. He attributed his failure to cet back to his refusal to recog nize John Baum (son of the Commissioner), as an attorney in a case in which there was a fee of $35 involved, unless he obtained the consent of the Attorney of Record. Indiana Claims Advanced Kefore Election. "Witness said that before the election of 1890 there were pension claims from the State of Indiana advanced for a considera tion. He cited a case from Columbus, Ind., he had handled, in which Mr. J. J. Dunbar, Representative Cooper's opponent for Con gress, was interested. Regarding the working of the completed files order, witness said that about 5 per cent of the cases that were sent to his divi sion as complete were really complete. The first lot of cases that came along were Lemon's cases, "which always came up smiling with a complete slip." These cases of Mr. Lemon's included many old claims that had been in the omce lor a long time. "Witness regarded the completed files order as a detriment to business. In concluding a reply to a question, wit ness remarked that he would like to show in parallel columns his record in contrast with that of the Commissioner in discharg ing him, and at the same time keeping Theodore Smith and a number of women reputed to be of bad moral character in office. This remark was finally stricken out, and the committee adjourned till Wednesday. Sufferers FromCon-hi, Sore Throat, etc., Should try "Brown's Bronchial Troches," a sim ple but sure remedy.

Blaize, an extensive real estate dealer in this city, narrowly escaped one of the severest attacks of pneumonia while in the northern part of the State -during the recent blizzard. Mr. Blaize had occasion to drive several miles during the storm and was so thoroughly chilled that he was una ble to get warm, and inside of an honr after his return he was threatened with a severe case of pneumonia or lung fever. Mr. Blaize sent to the nearest drugstore and got a bot tle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, of which he had often heard, and took a num ber of large doses. He says the effect was wonderful and that is a short time he was breathing quite easily. He kept on taking the medicine and the next day was able to come to Des Moines.
