The present stagnation in the iron business

treated himself to a pleasure trip to

He says that they are planting more corn
than usual in Alabama,having lost their cottonby
the drouth last year and having suffer- j

Other advices coming to us from Alabama,
show that there was much inconvenience

here, to-day, that tho road had been bought
by Mr. Davis, as a link iu the line from
Cincinnati through tho coal Holds of West
Virginia to Alexandria, ntut-]>o$sibiy to
Annapolis, Marylaud, but no negotiation
has been conoummated.
So many Republicans in tho Houso aro
evidently dissatisfied with the shape things
aro taking in tho South Carolina contested
election case that it is quite probable that
a compromise will be agreed ou by which
to break tho existing dead-lock. The Dem
ocrats seem willing to meet them ai least
half .way, as indicated by Mr. Blackburn's
resolution of investigation. Messrs. Wilson
and Kenna, of West Virginia, express
themselves warmly in favor of
the special committee proposed, whereby
all the facts as to the alleged forgery in the
case may be fully inquired into, Mr. Dibble
making a preliminary affidavit to the
effect that ho will be able to substantiate
his charges. Mr. Kenna is evidently making
the most of the opportunity to gain political
capital among the Democrats of his
district and it must be conceded that the
course which he nail Mr. Wilson, and the
Democratic members generally, are persuing,
is largely calculated to enhance their
popularity in a party sense.
Mr. Wilson savs to-night that the Little
Kanawha and Monongahela will yet find
their way into the river and harbor bill,
and get a fair show.
The Inter-Stato commission, which the
House commerce committee propose in
place of any direct legislation, will cousist
of three members, to be appointed from
civil life, and to have supervision of water
as well as railroad transportation. This is
substantially the plan suggested by Charles
Francis Adams.
The Texas Pacific land grants will, next
be considered by the House judiciary committee
and, as in thecaso of the Northern
Pacific grants, the majority will favor nonforfeiture,
though the minority will bo
larger because a different point is 'involved?that
of the right of the road to sell its
grant before it is earned, which many good
authorities hold to be illegal.
The Tariff Commission.
IFasin.VGTO.v, May 20.--lt is understood
that several persons were agreed upon as
members of the tariff commission at the
meeting of the Cabinet to-day, and that
their names will be sent to the Senate
! cnrlv next week: the* remninini' mnmhpra
will not be Eclecte<l until after the President's
return from New York. The names
of the members thus far agreed upon
are: John L. Ilayes, of Massachusetts;
Henry W. Oliver, of Fennsylvauia; A. M.
Garland, of Illinois; Robert P. .Porter, of
the District of Columbia; Alex. Mitchell,
of Wisconsin; ex-Governor JolmS. Phelps,
of Missouri, and James Chestnut, Jr., of
South Carolina. The list will probably be
completed by the selection of ex-VicePresident
Wheeler, of New York, who, if
chosen, will be the chairman of the commission,
and J. A. Ambler, of Ohio.

the bill relative to distilled spirits in honu
was considered. A substitute for the House
bill was introduced by Mr. Bayard, chairman
of the financial committee.
lu the House the dead-lock still continues.
On assembling Mr. Calkins called up
tho South Carolina contested election ease,
Tho usual dilatory motions were made by
the Democrats. There was much contusion
in the House, and the Sneaker's gavel
was in constant motion. Ilollcall followed
roll call. '
Finally, Mr. Blackburn, of Kentucky,
on behalf of the minority, submitted a
resolution proposing a special committee
to be appointed to investigate the charges
of irregularity in handling the testimony
of tho Maekey-Dibblo contested election
case. Mr. Blackburn asserted that his resolution
was intended as tho inaugural proceeding
on tho part of the minority tc
braak tho dead-lock.
Mr. Calkin, on behalf of tho majority,
declined the proposition.
Mr. Belforu, of Colorado, aimed to speak,
when the Speaker declared him out ol
order. Tho Colorado representative grew
indignant, when tho Speaker threatened, ii
tho gentleman did not tako his seat, to instruct
the sergeant-at-arnis to do his duty.
A stormy scene took place on the Kopnbfican
side; scores of members were talking at

party usage in tilling vacancies' on Stati

1 The Republican usage is not in accori
with Democratic precedents. In 1872, Gen

5 man-at-Large bv the Republican Stat
Convention, and lie declined some week:

1 letter, oi the new platform adopted at Hur

Chicago,May 26.?Clearings for the weekj$g|||
$37,000,000. Wholesale and retail trade
has been more lively this week, on account'.
of the large influx of outsiders to visit'tho
festival. On 'Change the week has been
busy but not an excited one, until to-day,,
when there was a heavy drop, in which^-S
nearly every article shared, and the bears
were triumphantly predicting great deraoj>|p||
alizat ion before long. There seems no good
reason for the prediction, however. ThoSBffi
tendency is to hold back grain; lake car-^^P
riers, in consequence, are suffering froml&tes;
this and from the failure, to get any ironltj^
ore to carry. The suspension of; workun.?$?
many forges and the labor strikes bring Ips
about tins state of affairs. Wheat to-day
was fairly active, unsettled and irregular.
When $L 31 was announced as tho price
for settling April deals the market became
weak-kneed, and did not recover. CorrH^M
was greatly shaken by the deal in wheat,
and offerings became so free that prices
receded rapidly, and at the close showed.;'"-;,^
auite a decline. Oats were very quiet, but
declined fully as much in proportion aa-j^^
other cereals. Lard was fairly active generully.

Cleveland, May 20.?There is very little
of anything doing in the iron markets and fiSag
prices are mostly nominal. Both buyers
and sellers are awaiting the developments
of tho threatening labor tlioubles and there
will be nothing done till these are settled..
The strike could not have happened- at'a^^S
more opportune time for the mantifactur- m
era here than tho present, as their contracts
have been pretty generally closcd up.
There are no new developments in tho
strike at Newburgh. Petroleum is easier^^^
and t cent lower this week. Railway bus-iness
is unchanged; freights east almost ^ ^
nothing; freights westward good. There
a slight increase in passenger carriage. ttSKSS
