WASHINGTON. Alleged Irregularities in The Management of the How ard University. Senator Sherman’s Letter Relative to ■ , the Salary Grab. A Few Apt Quotations Showing the Value of Such Self-Sacrifices.: - Reported Swindling in Gonneotion with the Montana War Claims. Special Dispatch io Tho Chicago Tribunt. SENATOR SHERMAN AND TUB BADAEV-ORAR. 'Washington, D, 0., Juno<22.—Tho reasons assigned by Senator Sherman in a recently pub lished letter for his failure to return his share of tho salary steal to tho Treasury of -tho United States are regarded by those familiar with tho law or tho subject as rather 11 thin;" that' the Chairman of tho Seriate Finance Committee should manifest such Ignorance concerning the laws governing appropriations and tho history of baok-pay steals, is surprising.. Qon. Spinner and other officers at tho Treasury Department, say that whilo Sherman and a few others havo ■ refused to draw their book pay, it is placed to their credit In tho Deportment, and may bo drawn. on their order years hence. This was done years ago by Senator Denton, of Missouri, under similar cir cumstances. Benton refused to tako tho back pay when it was voted by Congress, and took oc casion to denounce his colleagues for accepting it. Soveralyoors, afterwards ho called at tho Treasury and drew his share.. Tho act of July 12,1870, with regard to covering unexpended balances of appropriations into tho Treasury at tho end of two years, does not apply to tho com pensation of members of- Congress. The law governing appropriations for salary for Con gressmen is as follows t That the compensation which shall bo due ’to the members of the Sonata shall bo certified by tho Presi dent thereof, and that which shall bo duo to the ropro ent stives and delegates shall bo certified by tbo Speaker, and the same shall be pasnod as public ac counts, and paid out of the public Treasury. All cer tificates which have boon, or may be, granted, by tho presiding officers of tho (Donate and Houso of Representatives respectively, of tho amount of compeniatlon due to the members of (heir several Houses, and to such delegates, are, and ought to bo, doomed hold and taken, and are hereby declared to bo conclusive upon all the Departments and officers of tho Government of tho United States. Tbo aofe of July, 1870, relative to covering un expended balances of appropriations into tho Treasury, baa a proviso which says: But no appropriation for tho payment of tho interest or principal of the public debt, or to which Congress may have given a longer duration of law shall bo thus treated. Congressman George A. Halsey, of N. J., and several others who wore really in earnest in refusing to tako tbo bock-pay,- upon having tboir attention called ■ to tbo law. promptly dirow tbo monoy.and bad it returned huo tho Treasury. This, it has boon decided, Ib'tbo only way to pnt.it entirely beyond the reach of tbo person to whoso credit it stands in tbo Treasury. MANAGEMENT OP THE HOWARD UNIVERSITY. There bos boon a little unpleasantness among the Trustees of tho Howard University, tho re sult of which is a communication in a Sunday paper from* of tbo Trustees, making somo startling statements as to tho manner in which tbo institution is conducted. It is charged that tbo University has property which was paid for by Qen. How ard, as Commissioner of tho Froodmon’s Bu reau; is mortgaged to tho extent of nearly SIOO,OOO, and that this money has boon used by Gen. Howard and tho Trustees for their per sonal benefit. It Is also stated that tho institu tion ran behind, last year, $40,000, when it was said to bo self-sustaining. This will require a now mortgage upon tho property. Somo months ago tho Trustees voted Gen. Howard $12,000 back pay as President of tho University, under tho pretext that for throo or four years he bad been performing full duty as President, although ho had all that timo been Commissioner of tho Freodmen’s Bureau, or had boon absent in Arizona. Prior to that ho had received $16,000 from tbo Trustees. Although a more nominal salary was allowed him as President when the University was started, in this and other ways that are dark it is charged that Urge sums of money havo found their way ont of the tro&sary-oifico of tho institution into tho pockets of Gen. Howard and his associates, and to this is given a reason why the University is so largely in debt. Senator Pomeroy, of Hanses, was Chairman of tho Com mittee of Trustees that allowed Howard tho back pay. BRIDGE QUESTION. The representatives of tho Milwaukee. St. Paul & LaCrosse Railroad Company have neon granted ten days from yesterday wherein to file an argument against the decision of tho Attor noy-Gonoral in tno matter of the location of tho bridge over the Mississippi at LaCrosse. Qon. Baboook, the President's Private Secre tary. loft to-night for Chicago. \ TUB STOLEN RECORDS. It is asserted that the Government detectives aro on the track of tho records stolen from the War Department, and that probably all of them will bo recovered. At all events, it Is known, as previously stated in those dispatches, that copies of all tbo moat important of these records ore In good hands. MITCHELL, OF OREGON. The Republicans of Oregon—that is, tbo straight-out party men—are opposed to Senator Hipplo-Mitoholl, of that State, resigning his seat in the Senate. While they generally admit that, in view of recent developments, his influence as a Senator will bo neutralized, they assort that, as the Governor of Oregon is a Democrat, be would appoint a Democratic Senator. Tho Legislature does not meet for two years. Mitchell bos re cently stated that he would pursue tho course his friends advised. [Tothe AisociaUd Press.] THE PACIFIC RAILROAD SUITS. Wasiungtoic, Juno 22. —It woa said yesterday by ono of the Government counsel in the Union Pacific Railroad suit, that should defendants soon put in their demurrer to the bill, in equity, which is anticipated, the argument will com* xnence some time in September, at Hartford. UODE SWINDLING. Much excitement is caused by the recent action of J. W. Butterfield, clerk in the Second Gomptiollor’s Office, in connection with the adjustment of the Montana war claims, for winch Congress, at the lost session, appropriated over half a million of dollars. Upwards of $300,000 have thus far boon paid. It is alleged by various parties that Loandor U. Black, of Montana, and J. Insley, of Kansas, had given Alexander Cummings, Adjutant-Gen eral of Montana, $25,000. in vouchers in consid eration of his issuing to thorn the quota of vouchors claimed by them. When those vouchers wero presented here for pay ment by P.. A. Larpey, of Montana, to whom Cummings had hypothecated them, Messrs. Black and lusloy protested against it, claiming them as their property. An attempt was made to settle the matter judicially, hut In the meantime $22,000 of the money was paid by Butterfield to Black and Insley, notwithstand ing they had, it is alleged, also given to a party in Washington vouchers to the amount of $16,000 for influence with the Indian Bureau in furtherance of Indian contracts several years ago, and which wore also presented for collection. The matter is being investigated by the Secretary of the Treasury.
