to THE HERALD Commercial and rail
way circles were shocked and surprised
this evening with the receipt of a manifesto
iroia the Union Pacific to the effect that I
lis the city of Omaha had seen fit to enjoin
toe delivery of the 150000 of Union de j
3 ot bonds owing to the refusal of the I
Union Pacific to permit the Rock Island I
md Milwaukee to enter the city over its
bridge the company would make no effort
t have the bond delivered and would not
rcct the Union depot or least for awhile
The statement is lengthy and signed by the
ud
general attorney Thurston This is re
garded a only another scheme resulting
from the bridge complications and an op
portunity for Gould to injure Omahas com
jocrcc in return for the interest the city
has manifested in the success of the other
corporations to cross the Union Pacific
bridge

number who can harmonize the discordant
elements of their party I such a one is
found the first engagement will occur
Tuesday Ingalls will be then elected by

eight Ingalls men one Democrat and one
Alliance man I the Alliance men stick to

come a joint session when all will depend
upon the ability of the Alliance to keep
their forces together I they succeed in
this the session may end before nightfall

can prevent this One Qf these prophets
says Tomorroiv petitions will be read
in the house from every Grand Army post
in Kansas asking for the reelection of In

the posts themselves but from leading
I men in each post This will get around
the objection that the Grand Army of the

fluence with the soldier element for In

that when the Alliance comes into power
they will cut off the pensions of the sol

her for the senatorship but they will not

is doubtful the large soldier contingent
would support him tor that reason Con
gressman Simpson is ruled out from the
contest by the Alliance resolution that no
memberelect to Congress shall be eligible
to the United States Senate

Case of the Common
Special THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK Jan 25The speaker of the
House Thomas B Reed has written a long
letter to the Worhl in which he shows that
he was perfectly justified in
making the
rulings which warranted the Democrats ol
the country in calling him Czar Heed
In his letter to them the speaker says
Civilized mankind is so closely bound
together so united in thought and feeling
that whatever is happening of human prog
ress in one region is quite likely to be hap
pening in another Each condition of
humanity being a natural evolution from
the last it is fairly to be expected that
those who have taken the first step should
also take the second Hence widely sep
j arate countries having reached nearly the
same level of intelligence seem almost in
dependent of each other to be undergoing
the same changes A careful review of the
legislative bodies of this country and of
j the world shows a repetition of the
same difficulties and
everywhere the same
application of remedies That Ohio and
Kentucky New York and Tennessee
Massachusetts and Virginia although con
trolled by different parties and represent
log somewhat different modes of thought
should have the same obstructions to their
legislative worn and meet the obstructions
of a refusal to vote in the same way by the
method of counting those present to make
up a constitutional body is not pertaps to
be so much wondered at since these states
are component parts of one nation
A careful review of the parliamentary
history of the European and North Amen
can world will show that everywhere ex
cept in two small countries the same ques
tion has been agitated and discussed and
received decision The new method of oh
strnpHnn now in full t1 nt 0 i
periment in the Senate of the United
States the method of obstruction
by debate socalled is now having
its career all over the world and
will in time bate its remedy I
need not say that the remedy will leave
real debate intact and only include that
false debate which does not even resemble
the genuine article So little interest do
the people take in the modes and methods
of transacting legislative business thai
probably not one in twenty has any knowl
edge of some remarkable scenes which
took place in the British house of commons
ten years ago
Reed then writes about the famous strug
gle which commenced when Stuart Rendel
moved the address on the Queans speech
on Jariuary 01S81 and which lasted till
February 20
Speaker Reed thus describes some of the
iroccoedings showing that he has a pre
cbdentfor his famous rulings
V
After alwut nine hours and at about 1
clock Tuesday morning Mr Gladstone
on a motion to adjourn debate gave notice
hat the government proposed to resist
the motion This
was intended and con
strued as notice that the debate must end
before the close of the session It kept on
its monotonous way however until 440
oclock in the morning when Mr Speaker
retired and the clerk at the table informed
the house of the unavoidable absence of
Mr Speaker whereupon the deputy
speaker took the chair and Mr V
Sexton took the floor and unlimited debate
on the motion pending proceeded The
members were cross and Mr Deputy
Speaker had much trouble in keeping them
in order and confining them to the question
and did often meet with success At 130
oclock in the afternoon
Mr Speaker
re
appeared and resumed the chair against
the objections of Mr Parnell The debate
and the motion went on very much as be
fore untill about 11 ocock in the evening
when there were made some suggestions to
the speaker that the way out of the trouble
was to suspend all reodlcirrant members
as being in a conspiracy against order To
these suggestions Air Speaker responded
somewhat vaguely having evidently not
made up his mind what course to pursue
and called on tne member who had been
speaking to resume at 1135 oclock Mr
Speakcr > again retired leaving Mr Deputy
Speaker in tthe chair to struggle with her
majestys opposition
After midnight and in the early hours
an effort was made to induce the deputy
speaker to carry out the somewhat vague
ideas ol Mr Speaker but he declined so to
do and the wearisome iteration went on for
many hours more When Mr Speaker
refreshed by sleep returned at ii oclock in
the morning he in a vigorous allocution
in full control of all the powers or the house
in great contrast with his somewhat doubt
ful and unsatisfactory remarks of the
evening before proclaimed the sound doc
trine that the speaker as representative of
the power of the house had the right and
it was his duty to overrule the proceedings
however regular in form and debate how
ever sacred in theory which stopped the
business of the house After this address
which is a model of its kind he refused
further motions and further debate and put
the question on the amendment then pend
ing and on the main question which were
both carried
These proceedings caused great excite V
ment says Hansard among the members
present and those who voted in the minor
ity withdrew from the house crying priv
ilege privilege That afternoon when
the house met Mr Labouchere asked the
speaker by what authority he did this thing
and Mr Speaker replied witn spirit and
dignity I did it upon my own responsi
bility and from a sense of duty to the
After this lesson of the power of the
few over the many Mr Gladstone felt the
time had come when the unlimited power
of making motions and the unlimited right
of debate should give way to the transac
tion of public business Hence on the
Thursday following Mr Gladstone offered
his motion to remedy the evil which after
amendment took such shape that when
the house on motion of a minister of the
crown voted urgency the speaser was put
for the regulation of business This motion
was carried after one days debate owing
to the fortuitous circumstance that the
house was able to turn out all the Irish
members for that day and measures much
more restrictive than Mr Gladstones ole
turo have since been adopted and still
others will be required
