CLAIMS OF TUB CONNBCTICUT MUTUAL.
gpttial mnxvch to nt Tribnnt.
Washington, D. C., Jan. 27.—Robert Lin
coln to-day submitted an argument to Mr. Free
man, Assistant Attorney-General for the Post-
OlTlce Department, on behalf of the Connecticut
Mutual Life-Insurance Company, respecting the
llonore Building. The following are the most
important points: Ho briefly recites the hlstorf
of the transaction* between Hie Government
and tho Insurance Company. It Is admitted
that of the alleged lease little or nothing appears
Ih writing. Bpedal-Agedl Bangs, however, did
telegraph to the Department from Chicago rec
ommending the acceptance of ihequarlers In Uio
Honofo Building at
AN ANNUAL MNTAL OF $20,000,
laying that If tho Department authorized the
acceptance ho would send a description of the
premises so that Judge Spence might draw tho
proper papers, nnd tho Department approved
the selection with Uio provision that they can bo
retained until tho new building Is completed,
and directing plans to he sent. It Is claimed
that these transactions and the occupancy of the
building constitute a lease. The Mutual Insur
ance Company, by foreclosure, entered Into all
the rights which Honoro bad. The contract was
recognized—lndeed It could not have been for
feited—and tho rent was paid. Lincoln claims
that both parties had to bo bound by tho origi
nal Honoro contract, so that
it is now in. rones,
or it mode tbo Government a tenant from year
to year, beginning Oct. 1,1974, a tenancy which
can only bo terminated by either party hy sixty
days* notice in writing, given within four
months preceding tho last sixty days of the
year. Tho rooms taken for tho Registry
Department, tho latter In October, 1877,
were’taken in pursuance Of a proposition in
writing, under seal of the Company, made at tho
rpqueat of tho officers of tho Department.
That proposition contained these words: “ From
Oct. 1,16177, until the removal of the Post-Office
into the Government building.” This proposi
tion was accepted, and these rooms were not in
jured In Uie slightest degree by fire. Neither
Were tho rooms Injured on tho fourth floor,
where tho mall-bag repairs arc made. Lincoln
claims that tho whole tfotibie is tho result of
carelessness or negligence on the part of an
employe of tho Post-Ofllco In Chicago.
NOTES AND NEWS.

fiperlat /Htpaieh to The TVJfrtms.
Washington, D. 0., Jan. 37.—-TheDemocrats,
In defending tbo rights ol Gen. Uutter, of South
Carolina, to bis scat, will claim that tho Issues
bare all been settled, and that the cose cannot
again be opened. These will bo the views of
Den Hill, of the minority of the Committee,
who, doubtless, will draft tho minority report.
Hill claims that the entire question is one of
law and not of fact; that tho Election Commit
tee was discharged of the subject when Duller
was seated, and that there Is no precedent lor
reopening tbo cose. No now facts ore pre
sented, and It is not claimed that opportunity
was not given to present all tho old facts, nor
any new questions of law raised. Tbo Democrats
will undoubtedly ail take tills position, ami
assume tho case to bo settled. Thu Republic
ans are understood to have indicated their pur
pose of voting to keeping Butler in Ids scat.
Corbin's prospects do not appear favorable.
Indeed, it la said that, Blaino will not vote
to unseat Duller, and that Edmunds is of tho
samo opinion. The Democrats' opinion Is that
tho Republicans have come to this determina
tion from tho generally-conceded fact that It
will not bo possible to got Butler out between
now and tbo 4tb of MAirch, and It tho leading
Republicans countenance theattemnt, they will
'set a precedent by which the Democrats may
unseat Kellogg alter the 4th of March.
MB. FINLBT'S " EXAMINATION."
Borne curious revelations are being made as
to the manner in which a few Democrats of thu
'investigating Committee attempted to make
out a cose of fraud against the Hon. John D.
Defroos, Public Printer. Tbo usual number of
experts were employed. The export witnesses
ap]>esred before the Committee for croaa-uxam
nation. It Is sold tho cross-examination by
Mr. Burdick ot an expert developed tbo fact
that, tu preparing tbo statements, bo (the ex
pert) had used a method which bo knew to bo
fallacious; that tho result attained was a false
showing; that bis exhibits reported cosh on
baud by tho Public Printer us a dcllcloncy;
that ho had reported a lawful ex
penditure of over 9103,000 for thu
‘agricultural reports for tbu years 1574
nud 1875 as a dclldency, uud tliat this expend
iture was Included In bis sum of 9110,000 which
-ho bod represented ss a detldcLjy, uud which
Mr. Finley proposed to report io tho House us
• deficiency. This startling revelation of tho
character of the testimony In which It was pro
posed to rest ao grave a charge, uud thu direct
admission of Iheoxpert uu his cross-examina
tion that. In hts search of weeks and mouths, ho
had discovered no deficiency, uud Hut whsl was
shown by the statements os a dclldency was not
a deficiency, led tbo Committee to recall tho
authority given to make such report to thu
House.

Nu&uu Falls, Jqo. 23.—This morolog wa*
all that could bo wished for, nice and mild, but
cloudy, and* the tun was much missed. Tho
Princess rose earltur than usual, and, accom
panied by Lady MacNaraare, the Marquis, and
Col. Littleton, went out for a stroll around tho
Palls,' returning to breakfast at hglf-past 0
o'clock. .After dressing for tho morning drlro,
the Princess and party first visited Cot. b.
Davis' Tsblo flock House, ascended to .tbe
observatory, nml there viewed the fulls. Boras
sleighs and drivers were ordered to meet the
partv hero. Descending from tho observatory tbe
parly proceeded as on yesterday, excepting that
iu tho first sleigh, with his Excellency and her
Koyal Highness, Laay MseNamar* and Lieut,
liarbord hud honored positions In'ulaco of
Caot. Cbatcr, who occupied a seat to the second
sleigh. Thu party being all comfortably seated,
Mr. Isaacs acting as guide, they made a fluu
brisk start for whirlpool Hapldi. Keeping the
river road straight to the railway suspension
bridge, they halted several times and were
pointed out the different places of Interest on
the route. Aheavy freight-train was Just pass
ing over the brldgo from the Canadian to tho
American side as the party arrived, and they
were much interested In viewing it. Shortly
after a train loaded with snow followed mid
dumped its ley cargo Into the river. The fall
ing of snow from so great a bight burst to tho
breeze, and drew forth exclamations of delight
from the Hof a) pair. Thu route was now re
sumed over the bridge, and the strange forma
tions of the banks on both sides of the river,
and the blnlseye view of the Falls mi thu right,
with the Whirlpool Hock in the distance on (he
left, drew forth many exclamations of delight
and praUe from tho distinguished visitors.
His Excellency asked your correspondent a
few nuestlunsconccrniiig the Falls, whlcu led to
a brief general conversation. Tho proverbial
frankness and modesty of the new Governor-■
General were especially noticeable during the
trip to-day. Iu tho course of tho Interview Ida
Lordship spoke lo high terms of Uie cordial re
cuptiou which had been accorded him by thu
Canadian people, and of the kindly words which
had been expressed through the various ' news
papers of the United Stales.
To tho question, “ Are you here for sight
seeing or officially I" be replied, •• BlgUt-scelug
exclusively. We desired to see tho grandeur of
these waters Iu tbe winter time, uud with u
little ceremony at possible came ullbcr."
“ You have ncard the suggestions made by
tho Governor of Now York Slate fur an Inter
national psrkl" I said. . ‘
“Ob, yes," said his Lordship, “and 1 deem
them of the utmost Importance. Ao Interna
tional pork Is must desirable, and should bo
s matter of consideration by both the United
hiatus and Canadian Governments. Itwlllucod
considerable money lo carry the matter to a
successful completion; but 1 believe lhatwould
be forthcoming."
“Hare von auy plan whereby this park can be
established I" 1 Inquired.
“ Well, really, i have non*. I bsvo pot given
tho subject much consideration, having other
and more Important duties to claim my at
tention since my arrival iu tho Dotululou of
Canada."
Hesching the American side a turn was made
to the left lor tho whirlpool rapids. Descend
ing tiie double elevator the rapids were thor
oughly viewed, tiie party expressing them
selves highly pleased. Here they ascend
ed, . thanking the proprietor of die
same for his klodness and atloutloo,
and proceeded on their way again to tbe bridge.
AUgliUng sud ascending the narrow, winding
stairs leading to tho railway track on toe top of
the bridge, me party walked across, adaiiriog
w ith curiosity tho uoblo structure. Many ques
tions were asked concerning Jt and promptly
answered by Mr. Isaacs, tho guide.
Here another inspiring view met tbclr eye.
Leaulug over tho edge of the bridge and look
ing down a depth of 900 feet at tbe bolllug,
surging river running at a tremendous rate,
makes a sensation sucu as to make one fed like
holding fait to thu railing to prevent falling be
low. On reaching the Canadian side the sleighs
again cornu Into requisition, and the party pro
ceeded at a rapid gait up sud through tho
Village of Clifton to thu back road running
straight for tbe falls.
The snow on the hscg road befog much drifted,
It was lull of pitch-holes, and the sleighs Jumped
and hounded over them at s furious gmt, much
to the amusement of thu I'rlnccss, who highly
enjoyed the thumping und rolling of tig! ilelgii.
