Chulrmitn ol the Commit
tee on the Dtatrlt of
Tbe Bandar JltroXd yesterday gives tbe
following account of ah Interview between a
reporter of that paper and lion. Burton C.
Cook, chairman of tht Com mil tee on tbe
District of Columblai
' It appears to me," said tbe Jftrald rep
resentative, "that tbe nitty or seventy years
special chance and legislation by Congress
OTer tbe District of Columbia la Tery little
more tban a grand failure, Mr, Cook."
"Tee'rcp'led be, Mtbat la to certain
extant true, w far, at least, at tbe absence
of legislation Is concerned) but that U not,
perhaps, after all an unmixed evil."
"tne worm is governed too rnuco."
11 1 know," replied Mr. Cook. " too find
It Tery dlfllttlt to get an audience In Congress,
ana i tows; yon nave sunerea not a nine in
tbat respect. Dot a appose, on tbe other
band, that yon obtained everything yon
bare atked for during tbe latt dosen yeari,
yon would, I am Inclined to think, be a great
deal wono off than yon are now. However,
one of the prime difficulties you here to en
counter here Is, tbat Cod great baa to legislate
rormewnoie country, ana cannot neceasarnj
pay to tbe District of Colombia all the close
and minute attention that It rcqnlrea. Tbe
want and requirements, of a territory so
large as oars are ao rest, tbe Interests are to
conflicting, tbat many things which appear
trivial ana unimportant, woen compare!
with other projects and measures, are of
tbeer necessity alighted and Ignored. Mem
bers of Congress come here, the re pret en ta
ll ret of districts and Interests Infinitely
larger and more Important to them and their
constituents, and the country generally, than
tbe local anairs or Tour cut ana small ter
ritory. They neve no time to atiena to yoar
.bordlnate loterctls and demands, howerer
ham no doubt. r much blamed br tha
people here for what they regard aa our neif
lect of their Interests. Bnt It if not our
fault. I am sincerely anxious to do ail In
my power for the Improvement of Washing
ton and all my associates on tbe commit
tee are similarly Influenced, and bare equal
It good Intentions. Bnt what can we do f
We Miteuto statements, and prepare bills,
and watt our opportunity to present them.
Now, under the rules or tbe House, we can
get the floor only four or fire times daring a
session, and then make as mneh progress
at wo can. No one would think or asking
a suspension of tbe rules to consider Dls
trlct business. It would be sheer folly to
attempt It. Two score members would be
on tbslr feet to object at the same moment."
" You are In faror of the Territorial
"Fes. 1 am In faror of allowing tou to
rorcro yourselves. I bars not read tba bill
to which you refer. It went to tbe Commit
tee on Territories, Instead of to oar commit
tee, strange to say. Bat the trouble with all
such applications Is, that they come to us
In inch a erode form that wo can do next to
nothing with them.
i am in favor or me Territorial govern
mettfor the District, but with certain re
strictions. I have no doubt that Congress
has tbe power, under the Constitution, to
five you any rorra or government it pleases.
Bat there should be restrictions and lltnlta-
trlct of Colombia shall make no laws Incon
sistent with tbe Constitution of the United
States," as we lay to a 8tate. Tbe fact Is,
too Constitution It not aa mneh a limitation
as It Is a grant of powers! and a great
many things may be done under the Consti
tution or tne united states which It would
bo quite as well and better for tbe people If
they were left undone. Unless In the form
of gOTernment proposed certain restrictions
are Imposed, I am Inclined to thick tbat the
last state would be a great deal worse than
Tbiire should bo a limit to taxation j and,
araln. Conoress should bars a reto nower
on all legislation. I woo Id make tbe lower
house clectlrei but the GoTernor and unwr
bouse should, I think, be appointed bj the
Execotlre. The safeguard which thai vould
mace is Tery ootious.
Look, at the case. TtvuW !,,... .
notoriously the wg-,-g0Tenied and the most
corrupt portlc A of the country. New York
!. nie worst governed puce on tbe
face of the earth. I do not believe any one
will dlspnifj that. The city Is the resort of
adreuturefi from all parUt and here, as In
ever w'uer community, there would be a
"class of people, discontented, working from
day to day, who would rally to tbe support

or tbe property. holds re and place them ot -

said, a limit to tbeamount of taxation. Dut
In all other respects, except those I have
mentioned. I would clve tba District of Co
lambla all tbe rights, powers and privileges
wb frlva to Territory.
Then again, I am la faTor of the Uovcrn-
meut paying something toward tbe support
of the city. For Instance, when public Im-
provcmeoti are to be made, such at the par

tbe proportion which It should pay. Tbe
appropriation Should then be midl br Cmu
great. Bat all those bills for the relief of

to support the poor of this District."

the president submitted bis seml-annnat re

From tbe report we learn that the society
was Instituted In September, 1833, and ap-
B roved by the Most Reverend Archbishop of

yoar, tbe object being to provide the poor
Catholic children of thlt city with ft sotmd
Front 1853 to 1937 tbe society wat com
posed of but a tingle body, bavlog members
scattered throughout tbe city. In Septem
ber. 1867. the constitution wat to amended
at to provide for the organisation of divisions
and branch societies In the several parishes.
Or these there are now teveo, composing tne
irenerat society. The local aoclttles have a
president and secretary, who are also trus

Tbe membership of tbe society U 470, an
Increase of o7 daring the past six montbt.
Of tbe whole number only about 330 are
active members, contributing regularly to
the support of the society.
Tbe President earnestly recommends an
increase oi memoersnip equai in every par
ish to tbo aeffreeate membership of the sren-
era! society. In conclusion ho saytt f be
lieve that the facts will Justify me In saying
that the society, aJthough not what It
should be, never was In ft more flourishing
condition! tbat It Is steadily increasing in
numbers and prosoerltr. and that the led!
cations are that Its progress will be quite as
great during tbo next six mouths as It hat
been during tha past six months.
At the conclusion of tbe reading of tbe
report the president announced tbat Rev. F.

announced to address tbe society, would be
compelled to defer tbo address until some
Rev. J. A. Walter, pastor of St. Patrlck'a

Tlew with Mr. Bowen relative to a position
on the police force. While conversing with
tne Mayor usury uimucr, commiiiwun
the First ward, approached hit Honor and
informed him that about three years ago
Mr. Fogarty was a Tlolent Democrat.
Mr. Fogarty quietly rem atked to the
Mayor tbat he bad faced tbe rebels In 21
general engagements, In three of which be
was severely wounded, aud wonnded and
taken prisoner sit the battle of Uppervllle,
Va,. on Jane 31, 1803. lie also said that
having fought la the open field against rebel
bullets he dared to stand face to face with
ft rebel ward commissioner.
This remark raised the Ire of Mr. Illmbcr,
and he Immediately struck Mr. Fogarty lit
the face, la tbe presence of Mayor Bowen
whereupon Mr F. sued out a warrant
against Mr. Ulmber, charging blm with at
tault and battery.

In Introducing tho speaker. Vice President
Colfax made ft few eloquent Introductory re
marks in relation to Arctic expeditions and
tbe herolo devotion of tba men who had pro
jected and engaged In the explorations.
Caput o Hall entertained hit Audience for
two hours, tba lecture commencing at eight
octock. He begac by saying that he did
not aspire to be considered lecturer, but
that he would be perfectly at boms In ft
sledge expedition to the Arctic regions. It
did not require this announcement, how
ever, to prove the fact, but the lecture wat
nevertheless exceedingly Interesting. Ilia
style It connrtatlonal, and he talks as bit
recollections present themselves to bis mind.
His accounts of bit own exDloratloot are
therefore not given lu a connected form, but
the facts which he relatet, and especially his
descriptions of tha mode of llvloe among
tbe Esquimaux, possess ample Interest to
hold tha attention of sn audience.
Captain Hall first recited tbe history or
Arctic explorations irom toe earnest perioa
down to that of Blr John Franklin. Then
be dwelt at length npon tbe laiter, detailing
soma most interesting iacn ana circum
stances. He gave an entertaining account of
hit travels, explorations, and experience la
tbe regions ot eternal scow and Ice, and
Illustrated all hit movements by repeated
reference to large charts, which were ex
posed upon lbs stage In full view of the
audience. lis also brought upon tbe stage
three native Esquimaux, man. woman, and
child, who tad accompanied blm in all bis
travels. Tbe lecturer fully explained tbe
modo of life lo the Polar regions, and de
monstrated that he who would live comfort
ably and enjoy good health within tbe Polar
circle must lire as do the Esquimaux, eating
raw wbalcskln and blabber, or eating raw
meat and tipping train oU for coffee. Tbe
lecturer said he had never oaten anything la
temperate regions with the same relish that
he partook of those Polar dainties -dainties
of which people there attest their apprecia
tion by consuming at tbe rate of fifteen
pounds ft day.
Captain Hall said that bis first two visits
bad been for the purpose of discovering
traces of Sir John Franklin's expedition.
He would start again shortly for tbe pur
Kiss of prosecuting discoveries toward the
orth Pole. With the experience of other
men to guide him. and the knowledge be bad
obtained from eight years' residence In thst
region, be was convinced tbat he could pene
trate to tbe North Pole, and that ho would
there find land and fine whaling grounds in
tha undiscovered seat. He applies to tbs
Government for assistance to tbo amount of
f 100,000, and undertakes to say that within
three rears, or at tbe most five, he will plant
ibe American flair at tbe North Pole. He
thinks there It land there and people living
there. Tbo Exqulmaux think to, and be
baliuYn thev know. No one hat vet found
