WHAT TUB BADS lAimir SUCCEEDED IN GET*
. TlffO INTO THE MIVBK AND IIAUDOR DIED.
Knrclil Corrttpematnee of The inrmne.
Washington, D. C., Marcli B.—The fact that
the River and Harbor bill contained an appro
priation ot $750,000 for Cnpt. Ends is mid to
have been ono reason why tbo President desired
to veto the bill. Capu Eads lias been here ail
whiter, and boa bad a small but inlluenilul lobby
working in his Interest. As the result, bo suc
ceeded in Incorpurnlltip' the following provision
as an additional acctlou In tlie River and Harbor
bill: ‘
That the fourth and sections of an
set entitled '‘An act making anproprinllonsfor
the repfiir. preservation, and completion of certain
public works on rivers and harbors, and for other
purposes,” approved March 3. A. U. 1875,author-
Islni James Jl. Eads and his associates to crests
und petmanontly maintain a wide and deep channel
between the South Pass ot the Mlsslsstppi Hlver
and the Gulf of Mexico, be. nnd they are hereby,
amended so ns to provide, In lien of the payments
therein provided, that payments to said Ends or

namely:

hereby authorized and directed to pay to said Knds,
or his legal representatives, out of any money in
the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, the sum
for which said warrant la drawn.
When a channel shall have boon obtained by the
action of the Jetties and auxiliary works authorized
lit said act twenty-flvo feet In depth, and not less
than 200 feet In width at the bottom, through tbs
Said jetties, there shall be paid $500,000.
When a channel shall have been obtained through
the jetties twenty-six feet to depth, and not less
than 200 feet in width at the bottom, there shall be
paid $500,000.
When a channel thirty feet la depth, without re
gard to width, shall have been obtained through
tlie Jettlea, there shall bo paid $500,000; and tbo
$1,000,000 provided by the hereinbefore-recited
act to be paid by the United States In ten and twen
ty years shall be earned by said Rada and his asso
ciates, ami the same, with Interest, shall bo paid
to said Bads, or bis legal representatives, at the
times and In the manner provided by said act.
The SIOO,OOO per annum provided by said re
cited act to bo paid to said Eads and his associates
during a period of twenty years shall bo paid at tho
times and in the manner therein provided, upon
tho maintenance by said Bade and his associates of
o channel through tho Jetties twenty-six feet In
depth, nut less than 200 feet In width at tho bot
tom, and having through It a central dopthof thirty
icet without regard to width.
Nothing heroin contained shall bo so construed
as to repeal or In any wise effect tho provisions of
tho amendatory act approved June 11), A. I). 187 H,
by which said Eads Is entitled to rccolvo certain
moneys to pay for materials furnished, labor dune,
and expendiyires Incut red in tho construction of
the work at the mouth of tho Mississippi Jtlvcr;
and tho whole of the hereinbefore-recited act, ap
proved March 3, A. D. 1875, except as the same Is
hereby expressly modified or amended, or has by
act heretofore pasted been modified or amended,
tdiiliybe and remain In full force, and have tho
eame effect as if this act had not been passed.
Yet this appropriation Is made In the face of
tho following statement made byScnalor Davis,
of West Virginia, as to tho condition of tho
work, and tho fact that the Government has al
ready paid $1,000,000 more .than was originally
Intended to be paid:
It was In evidence before the Committee on
Transportation Bootes to the Seaboard that about
31, (100,000 In all has been expended upon this work.
There have been about $1,000,000 expended on
tho work. About s2,ooo,ooohas been paid or is at
tho control of the contractor. Now what is tho
condition of tho work! The report of tho Engineer
1b that tho original estimate, mnuo before tho work
was commenced on a very aolid basis, was $0.265, -
000. That was the contract price, upon the prin
ciple “No euro, no pay. Tho Senate and Congress
wore urged to make tho arrangements and make
tho contract. It was urged upon Congress not by
one man, not by two men, but by dozens of people,
ana this was the assurance of the contractor him
self.
Last year there was a modification of this plan.
Tiie Engineers In their report for 1K77 estimate
that tho work os dune is probably SO pur cent less
In cost than it was Intended by tho Government It
should cost.
Now what has boon tho result! The law was to
be, eo far os tho contract vmu,* that when twenty*
fourfeotof water was obtained then there would
he $2,000,000 duo. Consequently* reaching about
twenty-two feel of wntcror a littlo rising, accord
ing to tho latest report, there would bo SI, 000.000
due, but $2,0U0,000 of It has been paid or Is at
tho disposal of Cupt. Rads. Therefore, the con
tractor has had In his control $1,000,000 more
than the Government agreed to pay at any time,
except upon tho modification of the contract last
year. For tho past two years probably there has
been no progress In tho depth of the channel. Two
years nco the channel was about tho same as It is
to-day In depth, and It Is not os deep now as It was
two months ago. 1 understand the fact to be that
on the 10th of the month just passed, February,
tho depth was about twenty-two feel, and that In
Janury last It was nearly twenty-four feet. Con
sequently, there has been, Instead of an Increase
in depth, last tho reverse, and there la not as
, much water now as there was formerly.
Tho present measure asks us to do wlmtt To pay
$760,000 at once. Although one $1,000,000 have
now been paid more than was originally Intended
to bo paid. $760,000 more must bo paid m soon os
this measure passes, without any more work being
done whatever. What else! When twenty-live
feet of water is obtained, $600,000 more mast bo
jmld. All this Is in advance of what the contract
or agreement makes, even with the modification
iDudo a year ago. Then when Iwonty-slx foot of
water are obtained, $600,000 more are to bu paid;
and when a depth of thirty feet Is obtained, S6OO, •
000 more; those smns making the entire payment
that tho Government agrees to make when a depth
of thirty feet shall bo obtained, with a breadth
of 350 feet, T think, lly this modification In the
contract, beyond question tho Government Is mere
ly to say: •* Wo must pay over all this money and
take what work you nave done up to this lime."

North Rruwick, Me., March 10.—Tliofloor In
Mechanics* Halt gave away this forenoon, dur
ing (be town meeting, precipitating nearly fifty
persons to the floor below. No ono was killed,

LIBERTY OF DEBATE.
London, March 10.— In tho course of tho
debate in the Gorman Reichstag on cattle

citizens. Herr Lasker said that Bismarck's
aggression showed where was tho truo cle
ment of discord la debates. Ho intimated
that tho first aim of the gagging law should
bo to control the laugaago of tho Govern*
meut.
Bismarck replied, and air angry con
troversy ensued.
During the same debate Bismarck ostenta
tiously quitted tho House twioo, to avoid the
disagreeable necessity of listening to speech
ea of Herr Richter (Progressist). Tho House
was greatly amused at this demonstration,
bat some of tho oldor members viewed tho
matter more seriously.
Tho sitting loft tho impression, that Bis
marck was deliberately trying to provoke

It Is certain tho situation cannot muoh longer
continue as now.

furnish statistics relative to emigration. Ho
said tho movement ,Jn greater from tho loss

Pommeranin, West Prussia, and Posen.
When, however, tbo tenure of laud was ron

ing to rumors of defalcations by tho Cashiers of
two of the leading banka here, Tlie name of F.
W. Thomas, Cashier of Molson’a Rank, waa
freely mentioned, und It waa staled that ho had
overdrawn hla account to Ilia extent of SBO,OOO.
Tlie Directors have lately made a tnfnnlo Inves
tigation into tho affairs ot the bunk, und they
emphatically deny that tlie Cashier baaoverdrawn
his account. .Up to tho close of bank-hours,
Mr. Thomas remained in the bank transacting
business, although it was freely mentioned that
he had resigned. It Is understood that, about
four years ago, ho speculated, In company with
several other prominent men, In real estate,
purchasing heavily and at high figures during the
inflation. This has weighed heavily upon him, and
It Is said he has been compelled to make some
arrangement to liquidate the debt, but It Is de
nied that be has received moro than SO,OOO or
$7,000 from Molson's bank, which was dis
counted In the regular way bv tho Directors.
Tho reports had a depressing effect on the stock
ot the bank, and It was sold at a reduction of G
per cent from Saturday's price. The other ease
was the Cashier of the Bnnquo Nationals.
This gentleman, although It was rumored ho
hod committed suicide, waa in bis. office all day;
ami it Is gencrdlly believed that there are no
grounds whatever for tho adverse reports re
garding him. A very uneasy feeling prevailed,
nnd people are looking for startling develop

Following Is tho text of a numerously-signed
petition from Quebec, presented to tho Senate,
praying that American-built vessels bo no longer
entered on the free list of Canada for sale:
That tho British Navigation laws, which admit
American-built vessels In British registry In Can
ada, have long been on Intolcrao'.o Injustice to
your petitioners, and all who are interested in tho
welfare and prosperity of the Dominion. There
nro now o groat number of steamers and other
vessels of United States build, which have been
admitted to registry In Canada, which have not
contributed ono cont to the revenue of tbo coun
try; while Canadian-built vessels, mure particu
larly steamers, have been obliged to pay antics on
nearly everything entering Into their construc
tion.—aa iron, brass, copper, boiler-plate,
rivets, tools, cutlery, crockery, lamps, and a
hundred other things required In their construc
tion and employment. Your petitioners would
further represent to yoar Honorable House that
the admission of such vessels free of duty Is agrunt
discouragement to our merchants, mechanics, and
population generally; and Is, in fact, gtvlnir tho
foreigner a largo premium to enable him to shut
up our shipyards and machine-shops, depriving
our working population of their legitimate employ
ment, beggaring their families, or sending them
oat of the country to And a living denied them ut
home. That several hundred of those American
built vessels now owned In Canada,and by the laws
of the United States forever excluded from return
ing thence or being employed in any of their wa
ters, have now to a great extent, by recent Im
provements,ln machinery,-become a dead loss to
their owners and the country. Wherefore your
petitioners would pray that your Honorable llouso
will adopt such measures ns will effectually pre
vent all American vessels from being admitted to
registry la Canada, or of being navigated In any of
Its waters, until such lime as Canadian vessels are
accorded the same privileges as have been hitherto
extended to vessels built In the United States.

Columbus, 0., March 10.—New and fresh
evidences of a thoroughly-organized Ran? of
Incendiaries nro still being brought to tho sur
face by tho discovery ot prepared loses, ready
for the application of tho match, to insure tho
destruction o! houses, barns, and manufactur
ing establishments, tho largest number being
discovered in the eastern section of tjio city,
and at remote ooints. Nearly every ward in
the city has now a thoroughly organized patrol
In addition to tho regular police force and mi
litia companies, which will continue on daty
until tho ; City Government devises
means which will render property se
cure. A feeling of uneasiness prevails
over the anonymous cards and notes received by
the newspapers ami heavy property-holders, and
the fact that the strenuous efforts belngmadcto
discover the guilty ones thus far have failed to
afford a clew sufficient to warrant thu detention
of tho suspicious characters under arrest who
now fill the police stations. It Is believed now
that the loaders in the crime are in part com
posed ot thesu well acquainted with all tho by
ways of the city. The selection of buildings
and tho system adopted in lighting np the
Arcs show evidence ot much calculation-, as
well as daring recklessness. 11m air is fall ot
rumors of the most exciting nature, one sound
ot the fire-alarm bejng sufficient to (HI tho

Ono anonymous letter In a threatening tono
states that the workingmen demand work or

shall bo distributed among tho workingmen,
and, If necessary, they will burn property and

3CENTUCKY JUSTICE.
Bpfclal Dlwatr.h to The Tribune.
Louisvn.t.B, Ky,, March 10.—Rather a strange
proceeding in a court of justice occurred lu tho
United States Court room to ; duy before Judge
Ballard, District Judge. Col. Samuel McKcc,
a well-known Republican lawyer, has been at
torney fur twenty counterfeiters, tried at the
present term of the United States Circuit Court.
Col. McKee had In his- possession three dlcq,
used for manufacturing spurious coin, which he
held to use os evidence In these cases which
have not yet been tried. Ue expressed his per
fect willingness to return the dies when the coses
were decided.,Gabriel tyUdwell Wharton, United
Slates District-Attorney for Kentucky, display
ing a lack of confidence in Coli McKcc, prayed
the Court for a-rule compelling Col. McKco to
return the dies to the United States authorities.
Col. McKee says that ho would have surrendered
the dies to the Distrlct-Attornoyor any other offi
cer around Uio United States Court had ho been
told that such a proceeding would be instituted.
Col. McKco filed his rcanonso to the rule at once.
It was a red-hot one. Ho said that he could prove
that the Government detectives who hud arrested
these parties bad themselves both manufactured
mid sold the spurious coin; that tho dies In
question had been brought Into the country by
the detectives; and that his client, Absalom
Crabtree, had never had them, nor did thev be
long to him. Judge Bullard, however, excluded
all testimony damaging to the detectives. Judge
Ballard, after perusing Col. McKee’s response,
remarked that, as he had soon him In conversa
tion with a reporter, he thought that, unless he
exerted his luilucnco to have the mut
ter suppressed In the newspapers, ho
would lino him for contempt of court.
Col. McKco replied that he bad no influence
over the newspaper, uud did not Intend to make
any efforts one way or the other. lie desired
to nave his side of the story heard. Manv of
the prominent lawyers here express themselves
indignant at the conduct of Judge Ballard and
District-Attorney Wharton. Alter the Inau
guration of President Hayes, Cot. McKco and
Wharton were both applicants for tho position of
District-Attorney for Kentucky. Wharton, who
Is a member of what Is called the Custom-
House Ring, hold the upper hand, and secured
the nomination. McKee Is prominently men
tioned os the next Republican nominee for Gov
ernor of Kentucky. _ .

restricts the number of Chinese cmleranU in
any one vessel coming to our shores to fifteen
Tito humane features of the vetoed bill wi lbs
preserved In Urn new measure, and the restrict
ive clause will bo so Irnmed ns to meet the ob

Chinese legislation that the President’s veto of
tho Chinese bill was directed against theoro
posed notice of abrogation of Arts. 3 and 0
of tho Burllnggamo treaty, and not at the Dower
of Congress to legislate fur the exclusion of sa
objectionable class of emigrants. Indeed, they
claim that lie virtually acknowledged both tho
right ami duty of Congress to do this. There
fore, (he now proposition is to made to con
form to the President’s views as expressed la
the veto message, under the belief Unit lie will
sign It.
1 lie friends of this measure claim that tho
Chinese Embassy In this country, speaking for
Us Government, fully concedes that there Is no
necessity of Involving our treaty relatione in
this controversy, but that this Government,
through Its legislation, has a right to take such
action as will sujwrcss tho Immigration of con

it long ago took effective steps toward suppreu

done so fully that the British port of Hong Rung
is tho only place of departure for Chinese can
graut laborers,lbcshlopersof whom,lt Is claimed,
under a fiction of law, are permitted to violsUi
