APOLLIHARIS
NATURAL MINERAL WATER.
Tho Apollinarls Company (Limited) havo attached but llttlo Importance to the scan
dalous paragraphs and advertisements respecting Apollinarls Wator which have appeared
from time to time in tho newspapers.
Some of tho statements wore so absurd that thoy must have amused thoao who had any
information on the subject; others woro not without Ingenuity, and evinced a certain
spoolousnoas which was calculated to mislead tho public. Their motive and the interests
thoy worn intended to serve woro sufUolontly transparent.
The time has arrived when tho Apollinarls Company (Limited) think it desirable to
Rive nn authoritative, an reply to tho slanderous and mallßnont aoouia
tlona which have boon leveled against them.
Thoy do so by the publication of the following lottor from ttao United States Treasury,
to which thoy oppond the oortlflooto of tho world-famous Professor Virchow, of Berlin.
Those documents will satisfy every reasonable mind, and will leave any future slan

A POWERFUL MINORITY.
Special Oitpatch to,The Tribune.
Washington, D. C.,; March 23.—The long
fight over the Appropriation bills began Iu the
House to-day. The Republicans carried out
their caucus programme and raised a point of
order against the pollt!cdl«amcndments. That
amendment which strikes out from the present
law the words 44 and to keep the peace at the
polls” docs not upon lie Idee show a retrench
ment of expenditures, nnd fs consequently not
within tho rule. The Democrats at Urn outset
appeared to realize tho gravity of the situation,
and hardly know how the opposi
tion of tho should the latter
choose to take advantage of all their rights
as a minority. There bus been loud
intimation la the cbrrjdors and among
some of Dio of the
Hourbons that tho Democrats did not intend to
waste any time over the bills or to permit any
debate beyond an hour <Hso, mid thenroovothe
previous question. of the Repub
lican caucus of last night Jsccmed to have been
to Democrats -
A NEW mwrjfLATIOH.
Accordingly the gentleman who nos charge of
the bill was very courteous, and proposed to
give the Republicans all llhe time for debate
they might desire. 11b did not even In the
House move to limit the time of debate In
Committee of the Whole*!
The debate, which was begun upon a
point of order and which will be eon*
tinned to-morrow, wan very able upon the
Republican side, and ' very weak, evasive, and
Insullklcnt upon the Democratic side. Frye, of
Maine, and Robeson, of 1 New Jersey, made the
speeches of the day which gave thu Democrats
the most trouble. They* were unanswered, as
they ore unanswerable. Frye charged that the
amendment was a violation of thu Constitution,
in that It sought to shackle the hands of the
President as Commumlur-iu-Chlcf of the army,
and to proicnt him from exercising his consti
tutional prerogatives as such commander.
EX-SBCRBTAJir RODKSQM,
In a series of logical questions, forced the Dem
ocrats, led by Carlisle, Into such n perplexing
situation that the latter were glad to take
advantage of an opporluuity to adjourn,
forcing thu Democrats to admit that,
under the Constitution, the President os
Commander-In-Chief would bo compelled to
answer the calls of Executives of Slates for
troops to suppress Insurrection.
Mr. Robeson asked wbat would become of an
©nicer who, sworn to obey the Executive, should,
at the command of thu President, lead troops to
suppress riot to a place where on election was
occurring.
Pending a forcible Inquiry from Robeson,
whether the Democrats meant by this restric
tive legislation to (uelude the President of the
United States as an oflker of the Government
within the meaning of the amendment, who
might not, under penalty of Imprisonment and
line of 91,009, send troops near the polls, the
House adjourned.
It is not possible yet to see Die beginning
of the end of this exciting and unfortunate
business. The embarrassment of the Demo
crats daily Increases, while the resolution of
the Republicans seems hourly to Incrcose.
There is
MO SDOOESTION OP SURRENDER
anywhere, and all legislation is drifting while
the bitterness of parties Is Intenslllcd, and the
necessities and interests of the country are
disregarded. The deadlock la being engineered
in tbe interests of the Democratic Presidential
candidates as part of n scheme to influence
the Nominating Conventions of 1680. ]u it
tno rank and tile of the Democracy, even in
Congress here, hove no heart, and there are
beneath the surface, among men who talk lit
tle but think much, curses deep and loud
against the hateful policy to which the Dem
ocratic leaders have committed the party.
Thu House debuted a proposition relative to
promotions in the unity which wilt work a gross
Injustice. The section prohibits promotions
above the rank of Captain, except lu the En
gineer Corps. It is a piecemeal attempt to re
organize thu army, and will moat certainly en
counter considerable opposition In thu Senate.
The Democrats did this under the usual plea
that a largo portion of the expense of tbe srmy
results from promotion in higher rank, and
that It was the duty of Congress to curtail it.
TUB BX-CONPBDS TO TUB PHONT.
HamlulpU Tucker gavo his Democratic asso
dates, particularly those from the North, much
embarrassment to-dav by moving as an amend*
incut to the Army bill (ho repeal of the law
which forbids ex-Confederate oOlcera from be*
lug appointed to positions In the United States
army. It has lone been a favorite schema of
the Confederates to so reduce the army that
when the ox-Robols should again have complete
control of both Jlouscs of Congress they could
legislate that the West-Pointers of before the
War who resigned their commissions to enter
the Confederate service cot)ld be restored to
their former places, leaving the present Union
officers to bo cast adrift or to bo legislated out
by some absurd. system of technicalities.
Tucker to-day proposed nls amendment, and
preached his usual canting sermon about
“ PBACB AND IISCONOILUITON. 1 *
Tbo discourse fell upuu unwilling and restive
alto tߣifrtttf&
cnra. Tho Republicans would none of U, and
the Northern Democrat* were even more ear
ntslly onposed. Helstcr Cljrmer hurriedly left
hi* scat mid rushed up to the presiding officer,
Insisting that tho amendment should bo ruled
out of order, and other Northern Democrats be*
trayed much concern that so ugly n question
should at this time bo precipitated upon tho
party. Finally, without any very serious effort
at a division, the amendment was voted down.
It was curious In all these propositions affect
ing the army to notice that on all rising voles,
while his Uuurbon colleagues of tho Con*
fcdcracy were trying to cripple tho Federal
army, Gen. Joo Johnston, the greatest com
mander In that service, voted steadily and un
obtrusively with the Republicans In favor ot
every amendment or proposition designed to
benefit or dignify tho Federal army. The sec
tion as passed lu Committee of the Whole Is as
follows:
That from and after the passage of tain net, and
unillli mmll On otherwise provided bylaw, there
shall be no promotions or appointment* above tho
rank of Captain except In the Corps of Engineer",
and that no oillccr below tho rank of Mniur shall ho
transferred to the retired list except upon the re
port of u duly constituted board of ofllccrs to the
effect that inch oillccr Is no longer fit for active
service; provided, that nothing shall prevent Ibo
appointment of n Chief of Engineers with tno rank
of Urigudler-Oeacral when n vacancy snail occur.
TUB PEUATB.
Toff*" UVif'm Prfit.
Washington, 1). C.. March 28.—The House
went Into Committee of the Whole on the
Army Appropriation bill.
Mr. Tucker offered an amendment repealing
the law which prohibits any person who has
served In the military, naval, or civil service of
the Confederate Slates from being appointed to
a position lu the armv of the United States.
A point of order, made nml withdrawn bv
Mr. Conger, wai renewed by Mr. Sparks, anil
sustained liv the Chair.
The consideration of the bill having been con
cluded, with the exception of Sec. 0, repealing
the statutes allowing the military to preserve
the peace at the polls, that section was read.
Mr. Conger rose to & point of order, that the
section chanced the existing law, and did not
retrench expenditures. It could not be held
seriously that striking out the words 41 to keep
the peace at the polls ” retrenched expendi
tures.
Mr. Sparks admitted thntllhc section changed
the existing law, but argued that It retrenched
expenditures.
Mr. Frye argued that the section did not re
trench expenditures, it did not affect the
transportation of the army, because the Presi
dent was Commander-In-Chief, mid could irons
port troops wherever ho pleased, ami there was
no power in the House to say be should trans
port troops hcroaind not there.
MR. CARLISLE
thought the House ami country would hesitate
u long time before accepting the doctrine laid
down by the gentleman from Maine (Frye) that
the President, as Commander-In-Chief of tho
army, can transport troops wherever ho pleases,
nml use thorn for whatever purpose he pleases,
with or without the consent of Congress. He
undertook to atllrm that, under the Constitu
tion of this United Stales, the President nail no
right to use the army or navy or any part of Itio
protect the State against domestic violence, or to
enforce the State laws, unices tie was authorized
to do so by act of Congress. Old tho gentle
man on the other side mean to say that the pro
vision in the Constitution which made it the duty
of the United States to guarantee to every State
n republican lorm of government conferred
upon the President, a single olllecr of the United
Suites, that power] Were the gentlemen pre
pared to go before the country on a proposition
that the President was the United States? All
the authority which the President possessed to
day to use the army and navy in protecting
States against domestic violence or In assisting
States In oniordiig tiie law was derived, not
from the provision of the Constitution which bad
been read, hut from the net of Congress of the
4 «J3th of February, 1795, amended iu ]£o7.
MR. FRYE—
The gentleman in commencing his speech,
stated It was elalrobd by me Unit the President
had the power to’Chmsport troops wherever au‘
pleased lor any purpose whatever. 1 did not
say so. 1 did not ylaun it, mid I never claimed
it. What 1 claimed was simply tills: that if
these words * 4 to Keep the peace at the polls"
were stricken out] Unit would not bo any restric
tion whatever on the* power of the Connnamler-
In-Chlcf of the army to transport the army from
barrack to barrack', and' from State to Slate, as
be saw tit. That is .alt llml I claim, and does
nut llie gcntlcraah.admit Uioll
Mr. Carlisle—l agree to Unit,
Mr. Robeson—lf the Executive of a State
calls on tiie President to suppress domestic vio
lence, and if domestic violence is at tiie polls
where a general eluetiou is taking place, is not
the President bound under bis oath of oillco to
comply with that request?
Mr. Carlisle—lf the application is made in
regular form,-under act of Congress, I admit
that it is the duty of the President to send
troops: but I say when these troops have gone,
into a Stale, and have dispersed the mob, or in
surrectionists, or whatever tiiev may bo called,
witu are acting in resistance to the State author
ities, they have
PERFORMED THEIR DUTT,
and must bo stopped at that. They cannot stay
at thu pulls to protect the peace there.
•Mr. Robeson—Nobody is now disputing that
question, but I ask the gentleman whether or
not this proposed section would not take away
thu power of the President to do that if he were
properly called upon.
Mr. Carlisle—lt certainty will not.
Mr. Robeson—'lf that be'so. and If (t does not
take away thu President's power, mid if that
ejiitingeney shall ImpDcn, us It possibly mav,
and If (he olilcere of the army are sworn to obey
the lawful orders of the President, then what
becomes of the olllcer who is ordered by the
President to suppress a riot and to quell domes
tic violence at a place where a general election
has taken place!
Mr. Carlisle—The gentleman from Now Jersey
Is asking me questions on one subject, mid 1 am
discussing another subject. Of‘coursc.au olll
cer Is bound lo obey an order of thu President
where the President Is acting In strict conformity
to the law. lint we are discussing the question
whether or not soldiers can be sent Into a State
lor the purpose of keeping thu peace at the
polls, not for the purpose of suppressing domes
tic insurrection or violence.
Mr. Robeson—Do jou understand that the
President of tint United States Is Included in
the scope of this section, which speaks of ‘‘any
other person engaged in thu Civil Service of the
United Stoics”! if ho is, mid if ho tie culled
upon by the Executive of a State, property and
In a proper manner, and If ho responds to that
call, would ho be liable to punishment under thu
provision of this section?
Mr. Carlisle—The President cannot be proper
ly culled upon to do a tiling wh'cll he has no
power to do. In other words, lie c-ntmol be prop
erly called upon to send troops into a Statu lu
preserve the peace at an election.
Mr. Robeson—l understood the gcutlcmau to
say that he thought thu section
Pit) NOT AVVBCT THAT TOWER
of the Executive.
Mr. Carlisle—l desire to say that the words of
the suction to which the gentleman has culled
my attention are taken from (lie act of Feb. W,
18U5. and are an exact copy, so far us (hey co, ot
that act. (am not prepared to say exactly what
its tiuu construction is, but I do say Unit this
law cunuut be so construed or amended us to
punish uitv olllccr or citizen fordoing that which
he has a right to do.
Mr. Stephens obtained tbe floor, but stated be
was unaole to proceed at present, and at bis
suggestion tbo Committee rose, and the House
adjourned.

of thu House Itcpuhllcan caucus last night’ were
widely discussed to-day. The probable attitude
of the President Is an Importaiu topic.* Peso*
lute Republicans like Chandler, (larlicld, and
others, who have conversed with him, say while
they aro not permitted to speak by authority,
yet they are confident that the President in this
matter will bo at thorough Republican as any
body. Secretary Everts is appaicnlly the only
source from whtcb rumors of weakness on the
part of tbo president proceed. Evarts talks
openly in a weak and namby-pamby sort
of way as to tbo situation. Yesterday
to a gentleman ho sold: “The President can
not veto the entire Congress ll ; and to several
persons he has recently Intimated (hat
80UB COUI’KOUiSB ÜBASUKB
ought to be effected, lie has been especially
busy Id visiting Republican members on the sub
ject of Deputy Marshals. If there Is aurbody
In the cabinet disposed to Jobnsonlsc, William
M. Evans Is the man.
Secretary Schurz Is reported to bo as firm and
determined as any Republican could wish. Ho
was In the Senate at the time the Supcrvlsorlaw
was passed, and aided in Its passage.
Postmaster-General Key, In this as In nearly
every political question, shows himself to ho
one of the most radical of Republican converts,
and lias no sympathy with Uie attempt to repeal
the law.
The action of tho House in deciding to decline
to pair with Democrats
WILL UP. A VERY GREAT EMBARRASSMENT
to Die latter. This will compel every Democrat
of the House, Including the Infirm and aged, to
bu present in their seats at every roil, lu order
to carry the Democratic point.
In view of the resolute attitude of the Repub
licans, the Democrats will feel compelled to
grant them alt the time they desire for debate,
and cveryfopportunlty for amendment. There
could be no reason for refusing thin, especially
as the Republicans do not intend to filibuster
against the final passage of the bill.
Tho Democrats are storting an absurd story
that the President may decline to veto the bills,
but
PERMIT THEM TO DECOMB LAWS
without his signature, und Republicans general
ly since the caucus take a more cheerful view of
the situation In view of the possible failure of
the bills at the end of this fiscal year. The
opinion Is expressed that the army could be
maintained by voluntary contributions on the
parlof tho Republicans of the country If It was
necessary to vindicate the principle of free elec
tions.
TUB LAST DITCH
of which the Democrats are now talking In con*
ncctlon with their present campaign against the
laws guarding the ballot-box, Is a recess of Con*
cress till December In ease the President vetoes
the Appropriation hills. The Idea in this Is, os
expressed by several Senators and a number of
members, .that such action would leave the
President powerless, as, while Congress would
bo absent from Washington, It would bo con*
strucllvelv In session, and be could not call It.
The Democrats may find themselves much mis*
taken in this matter. Some consideration has
been clvcn to this question, and there are a
good many Republicans who hold that the
President can call Conercss as well while It Is
In prolonged recess os during its vacation.
THE POINT IS MADE’
that the power to call Congress was Given to the
President in order that, since Congress cannot
meet of its own accord except on the first Mon*
day In December, It might be oosslblc to assem
ble Congress on any extraordinary occasions.
Of these the President Is made the sole Judge.
They arc as liable to occur during a long recess
as during the usual summer vacation. The
Constitution docs not confine his power to a
vacation, and. in fact, unless he could call Con
gress while It was helpless to assemble during a
long recess, the very purpose for which the
Constitution gave him power mlcht he defeat
ed, ami, at times, great national disaster might*
follow*. There Is a strong probability that It
will be decided that the President can call Con
gress even In a recess.
MUST FOREGO THEIR “ TOIJJL"
The Democrats, lu view of the
front of the Republicans, and the refusal to
enter Into pairs, ore endeavoring to Introduce a
mural reform into their membership. One of
their New York organs, speaking of the alti
tude of tbo Republicans to-day, thus tenderly
relent to the (act that the Democrats are not all
members of the Congressional Temperance So
ciety: “This compact Irani will compel their
opponents to adopt more thau ordinary vig
ilance, and to require the careless to give up for
a time at least the loose habits which may im
peril party success."*
IOWA ELECTION CASE.
A I'IECB OP PARTISAN IMPUDENCE.
Bit rial /Mtpatch to The Ttibutu,
Washington, D. 0., March • 23.—The' Demo
cratic House to-day put a great Indignity upon
the Btutc of lowa by an unanimous party vote.
The Democrats referred to the Elections Com
mittee the memorial of the Democratic candi
date from the Seventh lowa District, who se
cured only 250 votes at the November election,
against some 110,000 votes east at the October
election, when his Republican opponent was elect
ed. The case was managed for this arrant pretend
er by Springer, of Illinois. Springer dignified this
memorial by the declaration that it involved
the great question of whether the law of the
United States Is binding upon the States or not,
and in every wav possible endeavored to
MAGNIFY TUB CLAIM
of Ibis fictitious candidate. Price, of lowa,
showed the sham of the whole ailulr; denied
that there was an election In November, or that
anybody participated In It, and showed that be
fore the ease of Pattersou and llulfurd, of
Colorado, the Democrats would not Itavo ven
tured upon so arbitrary a course.
Speaker Randall gravely ruled tlmt the me
morial upon its face Involved aquestlon of prlv
llcgo, uml it wus only, ludecd, after the Repub
licans threatened to filibuster that the Demo
crats exempted from the order of reference the
certificate of the Republican sluing member,
who Is
ALREADY SWORN IN.
It would not bo surprising If, In view of the
scanty Democratic majority in tlic House, und
llte pressure of party necessity, the Detnocmts
really should unseat tliu Republican Represent
ative from the Seventh lowa District, who was
elected in October, and give his sent to the
Democrat, who procured 350 votes at the Ho*
vember election. The Republicans of lowa may
bo prepared for just such an arbitrary assump*
tlou of jwwer as that.

if mice Kelley voted against the proposltlou ior
on income tax. Mr. Do la Matyr was very
fervent in his expressions, declaring, among
other things, that Secretary Sherman ought to
be Impeached, pud that the Almighty Is a bettor
man than he (Dels Matyr) or lie would long ago
have punished the men who are responsible for
the contraction of the currency and consequent
distress.

TUB TESTIMONY ALL IN.
Special Ulrpalc’t to The Tribune,
Washington, D. C., March 28.-=The test!*
mouy was dosed In the miserable Ollver-Cam
cron case to-day, nnd the jury was given leave
of absence until Monday. Judge'Cartier will
to-morrow decide the law points, nnd a verdict
is expected next week. The testimony to-day
was unimportant, nnd consisted mainly of ad*
dlttonal expert testimony as to tho forgery of
the letter on which the suit Is based. The sig
nificant feature about It Is that tho Widow
Oliver’s counsel brought no.
expert testimony to prove the letters are
genuine, resting the case simply upon her own
declaration as to thetr genuineness. Simon
Cameron, on the contrary, has produced a hose
of eminent und reputable experts who unite in
the statement that all except the letter known
as the Bristow letter, a harmless letter recom
mending the widow to the attention of the then
Secretary of the Treasurv, ore forgeries. Tho
evidence, of course, has no further bearing
on tbc moral elements of certain features
of the case than to prove that Cameron
Is nut a fool. If ho ever wrote the
letters which the widow claims he did, men ol
the world must certainly pronounce him a fool.
That has never yet been successfully said of t
member of the Clan Cameron.
MADAMS OROCNDTKB,
of Chicago, now Mrs. ilenrtques, that being the
name of her sixth husband, had her record
brought up in court to some extent to*day,whcn
to Impeach her testimony the Widow Oliver’s
counsel sought to prove that her reputation was
unsavory. The Court bad had cuougb of thu
dirty business, however, and said that was a
side issue Into which It was unnecessary
to go, as there had been stuff enough of that
sort In this case without hunting up the
court records In another filthy ease.
Nobody expects that the jury, if anv verdict
Is Given for the Widow Oliver, will give more
than enough to cover the costs of the suit.
If no verdict Is recovered, thu Widow Oliver
will scarcely lose anything, os it has been
evident that the suit lias been maintained by
contributions from speculative persons who are
Interested In a contingent Judcrocot.
CONFLICTING.
To the It *ettem Attoeiated Pnc3-
Washington, D. C., Maren 23.—1 n the Ollrcr-
Cameryn suit to-day the defense rested the case,
and Mrs. Oliver was recalled. She testified
that she had never slept In a roam with Mrs.
Ilenrtques, had no conversation with her about
Cameron, and never told her or any oilier per
son that she intended to blackmail him. The
prosecution rested. Adjourned..
