ingthe Lord for his blessing and goodness

platform and after Judge Martin had ad
ministered the oath he took the chair Tho
members applauded and the speaker re
sponded with a short speech thanking them
for the honor conferred upon him and ask
ing them to adopt a policy of charity and
The next in order of business was the
election of a chief clerk This office was
secured to Mr Charles H Reed of Ada
county by a small majority The house
then adjourned for one hour
At the afternoon session of the house the
business of the day was continued and the
following house officers elected Sergeant

pointed two committees one on organiza
tion and the other on rules after which
they adjourned for the day
The senatorial fight continues to be four
cornered and is about as badly mixed as
possible It is claimed by his friends that
Dubois will poll 21 votes on the first ballot
but the majority of the people do not give
Win more thai 17 and all but 4 of those are
in the house In the senate Shoup is
the favorite and will poll enough votes t
make a deadlock between him and
Freddy The talk continues t be all for
McConnell from tho north and it is pretty
generally allowed that he will be elected
from the north in pretty short order Still
with everything so mixed and dark horses
continually coming in it is almost an im
possibility for any one to secure the neces
sary 2 votes
In the house today the officers elected
were all Republican the six Democrats
being unable to do much more than pay a
compliment to their friends The house
can congratulate itself most heartily on its
officers and very especially on the young
ladies who are not only very pretty but
have damonstrated their ability to fill tho

Of the InterState Commerce
Railway Association
Among the Roads Annual Report of the Inter
state Commerce Commission Gould and
Fred Ames Interviewed
NEW YORK Dee 8 The Journal o
Finance today made public for the first
time a lengthy letter which was rec3ntly
written by Chairman Walker of the Inter
state Commerce Railwry association to
various railroad presidents on the general
condition of railway affairs and a plan for
reform the present methods He says
the present legislative attitude of Congress
and the states is injurious but the railroad
difficulties are not wholly due to that
cause Competition as it now exists among
carriers is ruinous is simply war The
situation he says pleases the un
reflecting public and the nesec
sary inference is that the railroads
are playing their adversaries a game He
refers to the fact that during the pasl
fifteen years about onethird of the railway
mileage in the United States has been re
organized or passed through foreclosure
proceedings He does not believe this
suicidal process is beyond control but says
radical changes are required
He points out that wars in passenger and
freight rates are brought about by scalping
secret agreements rebates etc and says
that 90 per cent of all tariff changes made
are a reduction He assures them of sys
tematic passenger ratecutting and calls it
competition gone mad Such wild and reck
less methods are not in the interest of the
public and are ruinous to railway systems
He calls on the presidents to recognize the
essential unity of railway interests and
make based disarmament
a new treaty se on
He says the first few months of life of the I
Interstate Commerce Railway association
is commonly referred to as a period
of comparatively successful administration
among western roads and it was really
armed neutrality every line maintained
its fighting force fully armed and equipped
Lines should rid themselves of the ma
chinery for ratecutting either open or
secret The fundamental principles of
the association should be concen
tration authority and unification of
interests A traffic division should control
the actual handling of business a rate
division should have the exclusive right to
contract with connecting roads in respect
to exchange of business division of joint
rates and with shippers at all points out
side the association territory joint agen I
cies should replace innumerable separate
agencies now in vogue This might be
extended ultimately to competive
points upon Hues of members
In the work of the traffic division
also might be very properly embraced the
clearinghouse idea under which i would
receive copies of all billing adjust accounts
between companies settle all loss and
damage claims etc Under euch a concen
tration of methods the danger of ratecut
ting oither secretor open would be sub
stantially ended not revenues of every line
protected and the public better served

lot of firstclass equipment but made no
provisions for paying for that I spent all

bill wap taken up Gray yielded to Gorman
who argued against the proposition to fix
the time for taking a vote He recalled the
statement of Hoar at the last session that
i the election bill were not then taken up
and disposed of there would not be time to
do so in the short session 1 had been the
firm conviction of the Democratic side that
after what had occurred at the last election
the Senator from Massachusetts would not
press the bill so tbe Senators on his side
had not prepared themselves to discuss it
intelligently Gorman continued We
stand today on a volcano We have heard
a discussion as to the starving Indians
but take no note of the fact that the farm
ers of the land are meeting and resolving
that there Is danger and trouble i not
starvation among them the faces of
bankers and merchants are blanched with
fear No man can tell whether tomorrow
or next day every bank in the centers of
commerce will not be closed by suspension
of payment nod now in the midst of such a
state of affairs we who come here flushed
with victory had hope that the majority of
the party would give us an opportunity to
join with it in preventing the wreck which
is now impending Lay aside this bill
which the country has pronounced against
and let us take l matters which all classes
of our fellow citizens ure looking to us > to
consider I you do not i you persist in
the course marked out by the Senator from
Massachusetts the responsibility must rest
with the party in power I the Senator
from Massachusetts insists on considera
tion of this partisan measure while bank
ruptcy and ruin are going on when he goes
back to Boston ho will find that merchants
and oankers and men of affairs as well as
farmers and laborers will tell him while
he is attempting hostile legislation legisla
tion against a section of country that i it
had not beenfor the products ol that sec
tion if it had not been for the money of
the cotton crop there would not be a bank
in Massachusetts able to pay its depositors
Tiie only thing that has saveU them has
been that they have been able to draw on
the cotton crop and on the oil
Hoar replied that for four days the
Senate had been listening to Democratic
speeches etc made for mere delay and
obstruction I the Senator from Mary
land had another measure which ne
thought would allay the panic 01 menace
to the commercial prosperity of the coun
try which had begun when the elections
were declared in favor of the Democratic
party the country having been before that
in a position of unexampled prosperity
why should ha not after a lair and proper
statement of the reasons for voting against
the election bill let the Senate vote upon i
Tho election bill was a measure whose sole
purpose was to submit to the judges of
courts of the United States against whose
integrity and official honor no man could
bring any charge the question of who had
the prima lacie title t a scat in the House
of Representatives instead of having it de
clared by ruffinism fraud or violence ar so
often was the case in the past

part eut today purchased 685000 ounces
I of silver at from 51023 to 11350
j Theamouiit of 4 per cent bonds accepted
today was 4591000 for which u disburse
ment of about 0350000 in money will be
made The secretary of the treasury said
this afternoon in view of existing condi
tions he would accept an additional offer
tons at a reasonable price of sufficient
amount to make the total purchase a000
000 for which he said tao expenditures
would be nearly 10000000 The secre
tary said further it is manifestly impossi
ble under existing conditions for him to
uso the fractional currency now in the
treasury in the purchase of bonds for the
reason that it would at once be returned to
him in exchange for greenbacks and leave
him With a deficiency instead of surplus
There are now about 10000000 fractional
currency in the treasury of which all but
2000000 is in silver half dollars As i is
legal tender to the amount of 10 only it is
not regarded as part of the available cash
balance The secretary said he would like
very much to get it into circulation but hs
certainly should not do so at the expense of
the limited available surplus
Bland today introduced a bill authoriz
ing the secretary of the treasury to prepare
a new series of legal tender notes or green
backs which when the ordinary revenues
of the government are not sufficient to
meet the requirements ho is to pay out in
sufficient dues sums to meet all demands and

situation held by its Washington corres
pondent with Secretary Windom The
secretary says the treasury department is
doing all it can to relieve the present strin

proposition at the present time In con

TheLondon Slanders Concerning it Hunted
Down and Apologies Offered
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK Des SThe Suits
London cable says Some weeks
ago John W Mackay published ad
vertisements in the London papers offering
a reward for information concerning the
identity of certain persons in London who
had circulated unpleasant rumors concern
ing Mrs Mackays early career The ex
planation of this circumstance furnishes an
amusing illustration of the facility with
whlcl rumor augments itself under favor
able conditions It seems that u lady of
high position near court Mrs Chain some
years ago was annoyed by the escapade of
a favorite maid who ran away from her
employer and her home and went to New
York with a wealthy Australian not un
known to the turf Her mistress interested
terested in the girls fate heard she had
eventually gone to the Pacific coast and
there married n Scotchman or Irishman by
the name of Mackay When Mrs J W
Mackay first came to London and attracted
the attention of fashionable society by I
giving splendid entertainments some I
thoughtless or illnatured person in Mrs
Chains circle of J rends threw out the
query as to whether the Mr Mackay
wOhse name was then in allpeoples mouths
as the shyer king in America could possibly
be the person who was reported to have
married Mrs Chains maid
Who this person was I do not undertake
to say although it is attributed to two not
very prominent men more or less addicted
to fashionable gossip But as in the case
of the three black crows the query once
started went from mouti t mouth until it
grew into an assertion and it was so often
repeated that it came at last to the knowl
edge of Mrs Mackay as proceeding from a
wellknown American lady now resident in
London Then Mr Mackay thinking the
time had come for tuklngdeci5ive measures
issued the advertisement referred to and
called in the service of George Lewis who
has been effectually settling the matter
right With explanations and apologies from
alt concerned

from Hawaii left the city tonight for San

the story from San Francisco that thoKung
I is here on a mission of annexation is an ab
surd invention He said The Kings I
am free to say is anxious for an extentio
of the reciprocity plan to all the products
of the island and It is no doubt on that
subject that he wants to talk to me He is
a firm believer in the benefits of general
reciprocity and eager to see it consum

could be done but I do not think it wise to
take any steps in that direction at present
in view of the attitude of political parties
