W.vsHrscTO*, December 9 —Immediate ly after reading the journal, the Speaker asked and received permission of the House to appoint the Committees on Rules, Accounts and Enrolled Bills. Mr. Morrison ( Illinois), offered a reso lution for reference to the Committee ou Rules when appointed. Tbe resolution proposes to continue in force the rules of the Forty-eighth Congress, with the modi fications referred to in these dispatches of yesterday, namely, ;he distribution of the work of the Appropriation Committee amon^ the other standing committees of the House. It leaves the committee with jurisdic tion over the Legislative and Sundry Civil biil; amends rule *21, by striking out the clause which provides that no provision in the general appropriation bill, or amend ment tfcerero. chauging existing law be in order, except such as are germane to the subject matter of the bill and shall re trench expenditure*. He called attention to the absolute ne cessity of having soma rule of procedure, while the subject of amending the rules was under consideration He had no in tention by bis resolution to abstract ac tion upon tbe proposed roles. It was not his impression that the House coald take an j jpeedy action on the proposed modifi es1 ions, acd hs thought that until action was taken there would be rules under which tbe House could proceed to business. Mr. Herbert opposed Mr. Hammond's p'opoeitioo, takirg the ground that the House having once adopted the old rules, could not change them without a two thirds vote. ■if ■■vc'g mist or tant». Mr. Hiscock, of New York, ruade a point of order that until a code oi rales was adop'ed the House was governed by rules ot the preceding Congress, and that under those rales theamendmect.'proposed by Mr. Springer must be referred to the Commit tee ou Rules. Mr. Springer opposed the point of order, maintaining that this House could not sur render its prerogatives,nor could the former Hou^e usurp them as would be the case it it were (fecided the House ot' the Forty eighth Cougresa could prescribe what rules should govern the House of the Forty ninth Congress. After further debate Mr. Hiscock moved his p >int of order ta enable Mr. Springer to take the tioor for a brief explanation of the objects sought to be obtained in his re vision of th? rule«. 3PKINUEB 9 RLWSIONOK THR HtTLfS. The firs', of tfcese objects, according to Springer, was the partial distribution ol the labors o4 the Committee on Appropria tions, and he argued in support ot the view that snch distribution would result in man» thorough consideration of and more s-v»edy action upon great monejed bills which werf» brought before Congress. He refuted tho assertion that distribution w.-mUJ result in extravagance in public ex penditures and regarded as a redaction on représentât:* es of th« paople the idea that there was a favored few and honored in their midst who could alone be trusted. He also proposed the abolition of a number of useless com mitters and^winted out the advantages which would result from this concentration of committee membership by enabling committees to secure a quorum for the trausaciian of business, which had hereto fore been difficult from the fact that every R<?pi*»senfative was a member of two or mere committees. Another object sought to be oouined by his revised code was to facilitate the transaction of business by p*rmi'ting the passage ot bills dur ng the morning hour. Another proposition which he thought would commend itself to mem bers wis that of prohibiting the incorpora tion of general legislation cn appropria tion bills. Oq motion cf Mr. Springer the propoâtd rules were referred to the Committee on Rules The Speaker appointed the Committee on Rules follows The Spsaker Messrs. Randall, Morrison, R«*»d and Hiscock. In order to give the Committee lime to consider various pro positions referred to it. on motion of Mr. Morrison the House adjourned until Satur d»7- m A CREDITABLE DOCUMENT. The Tribun« Bay* it is Better thau Ou Party by Which the President Ii Hacke«!. New York, December }♦.—The Tribun« wi'! jay: The first message of the Presi dent is a creditable paper. Onsomeofthi most important questions of which it trta'i it deserves hearty praise. Nor >s it to hin di sored it able, bat mich to his credit, tha it is beat and most worthy ot commeods tion just where his par*y is worst and it influence u most to be feared. No part spirit is apparent in judging of the recon mendstions which the President has t ofltr. The President's argument for th suspension ot silver coinage is so earnest strong *Ld convincing that criticism of it dt-tiùia is needless. ' Aa unusually larçe p*rt ot toe nie»»g is J«voted to loreige atf'airs. This part c :b* tness&xe, iq »oaje particulars, is op« ^ to jmt criticism, Csrtatnly it is not th ? strongest reason for objecting to the con ' martial treaties that they do not affect tb «hole of our trade with certain countries 9 A. far greater objection is that seriocn ii jury to borne industry might result fron 1 tbos« treaties. As to the rejection of Mi Ktiley, the Fre^dent aays that the wit! • draw^l ot the appoint!*.*;: nnder the cii • lumstances would have invoi.ei tb . 'prMÛ^I disfranchisement of a Urge cia< 1 ot our citi*e*f.' If the President's r 0 markj on this point t*« W to be ceneur« ® Ur JemagogueMta they ®u#t t»e dismiss« j as alnMt childish. y "What the Prudent says aoout the r f fur® of the Civil Servies will be contrast« t not to hû credit with some of his appoin u ments. It be inferred either that û j President s declarations express a pu ,e ^oee which is not always present in h own mind, or that the influence of his on u i) at times #ith him ao overpowering a: is geuerally so hostile to the principles reform that he is made to appear lite ti u waterman, looking one way and rowii ot the other. The President is open to mo t0 severe censure for hi* nn reserved appro« of the course which some members of 1 n. ! Çafca# have taken,' ÎÎ 1 COLONEL M'CLUHfc§ OPINION The Ks|ard*d m m Positiv« 4 D. iwisave to Batluis aud Industry. PgitsDsuwu, December 9. — T Times will sar 'President Ole' a, ' land give* the most positive a#r ! »nee to business and industry. There is ; ! no ambiguity in hi* langnage. What he 1 believes he lays, what he say« he means, and he meets the question of revenue re-. form with a degree of candor and fidelity to our great business and industrial inter ests that must command the general ap proval of business circles, and the cordial truth of the whole nation. The assumed protection leaders, who have come to the iront in the face of the demand of the Re publican platform in favor of tariff revi sion and revenue reduction, to forbid any modification of our revenue laws, must be halted in their folly by the plain and pointed expression of the President, unless their ill-aavised zeal for the monopoly ! features of protection has wholly clouded their judgment. As this journal has re peatedly assured them, they will have a faithful ally in the Cleveland administra tion for just protection to American labor, and their duty is ao plain that he who runs may read to cordially co operate with , the Administration in the reduction of - revenues on the basis of the message. The widespread apprehension iu busi ness and industrial circles that a Demo cratic administration might unsettle busi I ness trust, and peril our vast industrial en terprise by tariff revision in the drift to ward free trade, is no» dissipated by the broad aud positive declarations of both the President and Secretary of the Treasury, and both capital and labor can accept the assurance that there can be no shock to their prosperity while Qrover Cleveland shall be President This emphatic assur ance to our business and industry mist quiet all unrest created by reckless parti-1 sans, and our business and industrial channels can give to the Government their hearty co operation and confidence. CAPITAL i'RfcSS COMMENT. Washington', December 9.—The Even-1 ing Star, commenting upon the President s message, says: "The message throughout is characteristic af Mr. Cleveland in the clear cut, explicit declaration of his ; views allowing no man to mistake them in any particular." The Critic says: "There are m*ny i wise and valuable suggestions in the mess age." PRACTICAL GOOD SENSE And Sound Judgement Tüat Should IVln the Confidence of the Country. NV.v York, December Ü*.—The World will say "The confidence of the country in President Cleveland a sound judgment, in his practical good sense and in his firm grasp of great public questions will be confirmed and increased by his first mes sage to Congress. It is something more and higher than a business message Without coascioua effort, apparently, and certainly without visible straining after either the lofty or the profound, the Presi dent hai impressed on his ujesaage the •tamp of a broad and ainoere patriotism. It* comments and suggestions are many, ; ! its principle« tew and the highest. ''To defend the national dignity and honor, to respect the laws himself and in sist that others shall obey them, to punish and prevent diahonest acts, to advance our material interests and maintain «ur na tional credit, and to put wisdom above partisanship, these are the principles and purposes whi«h guided the Executive hand in preparing the review of the affairs of the nation. It is the complex sentiment of 1 patriot«« «whMdd to practical expression and appliad to the business of the State. I Upon the law and the principle of Civil Service reform the President speaks with all the emphasis of firm conviction, ripened and assured by experience. He is almost combative in his adherence to the growing results of this reform. Vet this temper is not out of place in his ireasage in dealing with a question in respect to which everything depends upon his firmness and his courage. He pictures forth in colors none too strong the demoralisation, not only tor the ser vice, but of the nation to which the spoils system was leading, and adds a timely and sensible word upon the evils of blind and ; bitter partisanship Nobody can read this massive without crediting its author with a sincere adherence to his own doctrine that 'public office is a public trust.' " FOREIGN COMMENT. Leading London 'Journal* Approve the Friendly Spirit of the Document. Losdox, December 9.—The N> wa edito i rially says: ' President Cleveland's mes sage seems to place him in true succession to the greater men who have occupied the Presidential chair rather than to the late decline. It ia conceived in a most just and friendly spirit toward all foreign pow era, and contains no word to tickle the ears of American jiugoe. The message expresses a sentiment of international good will. It ia equally wise and prudent on all domestic top-cs." The Post auys: "Some of the old world s ate'men might ponder with benefit over Mr. Cleveland's reoaons touching the Nica ragua treaty." The Standard sa va: "The mesjnge is , temperate and dignified. It contrasts very favorably with some of the wild dispatches of Mr. Frelinghuyaen and Mr. Blaine. Mr. Cleveland's policy oh the whole ia worthy ; of adoption.

New York, December 9.—Chauncey M. Depew, of the New York Central Railroad, said this morning that the Board of Direc tors would probably hold a meeting to-mor row to take action on the death of Mr. V'anderbilt.

PRESIDENT ÜARRETT .S STATEMENT. Coroner Messemer this mornin* took the following statement from President Robert Garrett, of the Baltimore A Ohio Railroad, on Mr. Yanderbilt's death: "I reached Mr. Yanderbilt's house yesterday about a quar ter past one o'clock lie received me in bis library, and we conversed together about an hour, perhaps a little longer, when Mr. Yanderbilt's speech became in distinct, and the next instant I noticed a twitching of the face, and almoBt at the ' same instant his face was suddenly con j vulaed H was sitting on the edge of his ' chair He fell forward and I reached him in time to thrust my arm under his shoul der and prevent him from falling heavily to the tloor. I placed a cushion which I was at hand under his bead and imrnedi- j ately summoned a Borvant and called for water, with which I bathed his face until ; the arrival of bis son, Mr. George Yander bilt, and Dr. Miller. We did not realise the fact of his death until the arrival of Dr. McLean.'' A DESOLATE MANSION äceteti t«t the Kealiletu-e of the Dead >lil llonaire. Ne v York, December 9 —The rain that poured duwu in dismal torrents in this city to day added to the desolate look of the Vanuerbilt palace on Fifth avenue this morning. A simple knot o( crape depend ingfrom the bell-knob was the only mourn- ! ing emblem visible, but the curtains were ; all closely drawn and the house closed up as it was without any signs of life within, > except when a servant answered the bell, presented « gloomy aspect. The broad ; entrance to the VanderoiU mansion pre sented an uninviting appearance. The ' servants of the honse, wherever they ap peared, wore sombre colored garments and trod lightly as they passed to and fro seem- ; ingly tearful of disturbing the mourning i family of the dead millionaire. Paagereby stopped in front of the palace And gazed 1 curiously at the building, eying it from roof to basement, and then passing on their w*y. The body of the dead railroad magnate lies in the chamber formerly occupied by him in the southwest corner of the second tloor. The sons, Cornelius and George, watched all niglit with the remain», and early this morning the members of the family met to make the final arrangements for the funeral. Mr. and Mrs. W. K. I Vanderbilt, Frederick W. and wife, Mrs Shepard, Mrs. Sloaue, Mr. and Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Twombley had reached the house by 10 o'clock. At 9:30 o'clock a messenger was sen», to the house of Mr. Chauncey M. Depew, at No. 22 F.ast Forty-fifth street, who an swered that he would arrive within an hour. Mr. Depew told a reporter that the family had not yet decided who the pall bearers should be, but that he would an nounce the list during the day. Ile said tho family could not realize their loss as yet. Some of the members, he said, were weeping bitterly this morning when he called, and soemed disconsolate beyond description. The callers at the mansion to da;, in cluded nearly every man of prominence in financial circles here. Among them were Pierrepont Morgan, D. 0. Mill#, Sidney Dillon, Salem II. Wates, Cyrus W. Field, John King, Mr. Sabbie, Delano C Calvin, Samuel Sloan, John D. Rockafeller, and I Hev. Dra. John Hall and Deems, Elihn Root, Drs. McLsne and Webb, Mr. Fabre, of the firm of Drexel. Morgan & Co., Mrs I Gen. J. Watson Webb, Mr. Wilson G. Hunt aud Mr. J. Fred. Tanis It is now definitely settled that the funeral will take place on Friday, and that the services at St. Bartholomew's Church will be public. The remains will be in terred in the family plot at New Drop j Staten Island, until the Vanderbilt biauso I Ian m id pnmDleted. la interviews with several prominent fiaanciers to-day with regard to Mr. Van derbilt'* death and its probable effect, the : following views were gleaned : Secretary ! Ely, of the Stock Exchange, said: "As a mafer of courte the death o.' Wm. H.Van derbilt will have a temporary depressing effect upon the market, but there will be no panic. Mr. Yanderbilt's stocks were mostly bought on sight, and paid for, thuc I being to a great extent removed from the ! market." DEPEW'S REMInTsCENCES. I How the Mo|t Intimate Friend Desrrtbei HU Characteristic*. NkwYo&(, December 9.—Chauacey M Depew, President of the New York Cen tral railroad, has had more intimate re la tion with Mr. Yanderbilt than any othe i person in the world, He has been his ad j riser for twenty years. Mr. Depew talkei freely t2 9 correspcndeni at hi home, in East Perty &tth street, tbi evening, and said: "I don't think that Mi ' * Yanderbilt had any idea that he w& about to die. He told an intimate frien of his about two weeks ago that he thougl if he passed his 65th birthday he would b • good for twenty years more ç>f lif*. Tber ! was something about tie age of 65 whic he seemed to consider a critical period 1 something connected with the family hii , tory, I believe. Mr. Vanderbilt was a i ways a ver/ hard vorker, and ku larg frame and immensely vigorous physics were the results of the work he did on hi farm op Staten Island. '•. "fie used tw get tip at -1 o'clock e7« > day, and he has told me tha'. he had oft« ) oops lato the pity and bees back on tl a firm ploughing b? 7 o'clock. When 1 */. the Xtw York Central at the aj 1 of 43,'he knew no£n» **>*1 railroads at ? had to work lerj hard. H« Itui kept t his early rising, was always work at' 9, and worked all day long and almost almys until late ic the evening. He jras the aimpleet ic eaten at tbe table, and never drank any thing, except an oco^ional glasi of claret. Nordidheever use tobacco in any form. He was extremely tond of a good horse, and was one oi tha beat dirt vers that ever lived. He became, ^ study and attention, one of tbe beet judgor of pictures in this conntrv, as is testiSis^by his gallery, which undoubtedly contain the best collection of modern paintings c the world. KK ARLES? or , LS3ASSI NATION. "Another of his Ipeculiaritiea was his fearlessness. He wajconstantly in receipt of letters, informing lim at what hour and place he would be ah# or stabbed or other wise killed, but tbiy never intimidated him. His habits wire regular and tie drove out daily at a certain hour along the same roads and by die same places, went to his office at tbe swne hour and entered and left in the same way. Tbe letters he received never stopped him from these journeys. He always handed these letters to me, but he would never permit me to invalidate then. _ _ Mr. Vanderbilt waii a great family man waa fond of hia children and of naving family gatherings at his home. He never cared for large parties or dinners. He liked to have a few friends drop in and tals with him or play a game of whist or euchre. His reading was confined entire ly to the daily press and to eveuts of the present. He was a philosopher on the subject of misrep resentation in the public prints, his idea of his relation to the rent of the world was to act according to his own standard, which he believed good or as near right as fie knew how. He recognized the fact that his wealth and the character of his invest ments necessarily subjected him to criti cism and discussion, consequently he became accustomed to abuse, and while not affected by it, he was alwaya pleased when nice thiuga were printed about him. "The charges have been rung a thousand times," continued Mr. Depew, ' upon that public be d—d' expression. The fact is that he never said it in the sense attributed to him, and it hurt him very much. He was not a coarse, loud or vulgar man,'and all reports to that effect are untrue. He was a gentleman, and always dressed and K^.katra/1 a a an on ' He never gave iu his mauner|Jot treat ment any indication that he knew the dif terence between a man worth five cents and one worth live millions. In talk he was a lair man, bnt exceedingly frank and blunt. With all his wealth he had not pride of opinion, but infinitely pre ferred to discuss questions of moment before acting. He was a capital judge of men,and rarely made a mistake in them. He inherited his father's manner of jumping at shrewd conclusions, though not by logical processes or regular methods. His lrequent remark would be, 'Now what I want is not what you think I want you to think, but what yoc. think yourself.' He had a way of shaking hands and Bayiog, 'How are you, old fellow/ which made him very pleasant. '*1 do not think, " concluded Air.

We are indebted to bim for wise council and able service. In the great domain of railway transportation, in which Mr. Vanderbilt had long held the most conspicuous position, his conduct had been guided by wisdom und sagacity of a high order, and he had won the confidence and esteem of a vast constituency in the various corporations with which he had been associated. As a citi/en, he was known to us as a man of great public spirit, with a kind heart and generous im pulses, which render his memory dear tc the community as a public and private benefactor.

THE INVISIBLE FUEL Failure of Natural Gas Probably Due to Defective Casing. IS THE SUPPLY OF GAS DURABLE? Interesting Facts Gathered At Wells burg — The Outlook For Local Gas. Special to th* Rtgitin. WtLLSBt*Ru, L>ecember 9.—Wellsburg to day preaenta an appearance very differ ent from that of only a week ago. The chimneys emit continaons columns of • black smoke. Coal wagons of all sizes and descriptions frequent the afreets. Un j seeing this one would conclude that the , ji&rd working miner had, put new oil into his lamp and got hia pick resharpened. So I he has. Entering a house where the cold is with difficulty whipped out by the ht-at you will observe the old magnetized poker : io its accustomed place in company with the other paraphernalia of the lire place. The highly carbonized fluttering flame plays joyfully in the grate. The INVISIBLE FCEt. HAS BEEN* SUPPLANTED in many cases by the old reliable. The ! scarcity of the former led to this very ap parent change. Wellsburg, like Pittsburg, Allegheny and Beaver, has experienced trouble in the last few days with its natural gas supply. Many theories are rife concerning the Erobable cause of the unexpected difficulty !vident'y the demand has been much greater than ever before, but whether the supply is decreasing is the qaestion that most concerns those interested. The late trouble at Wellsburg is proba bly due to three caasea—the increase in demand, the decrease in supoly. and the freezing up of the pipe lines which lead from the wells to the town. These are un covered. and the dampness in the gas con geals in the pipe where it luy on thejfrozen ground. This congelation steadily in creases, until the whole pipe is tilled and the passage of the gas is impossible. This, of course, would be sufficient to deprive the town of gas, no matter how great the supply. The gas company is preparing to bury the entire line ot piping, which will set aside this one cause ot dWaatiefaction. By tar THE MOST POTENT QUESTION' in connection with the gas industry that now demands solution by the scientist is, whether the wells that at first were pro i nouncc-d to be productive will remain so. Kach gas region seems to present phenom ena that are peculiar to itself, and out of the abundance of evidence the patience of I the investigator iB exhausted before any , satisfactory conclusion is derived. Th» supply of gas is not regulated by the demand, as is ruojt merchandise, but by certain conditions. Geologists tell us ' the stratum out of which it forms, and a porous sandstone which acta as a reservoir for it must be immediately above. This sandstone along the anti-chinal axis contains the treasure that is destined to revolutionize, either directly or indirectly, «11 manufacturing. The absence of any one of the three aforementioned conditions would be fatal to finding any gas. while if I either of the first two was only partially developed it would influence the continu ous supply very materially. The character ot the gas Eand i'sflf undoubtedly has much ! to do with a continuous flow. All the I fifty WELLS THAT SUPPLY l lTTSIn K<i have a coaree, pebbly sand, while that found at Wellsburg and in many places in Ohio is fine grained. The superiority of the former over tbe latter la i-eadily seen. Where the welis are failing most rapidly is ! in the region of the fine grained sand. The preseure of the gas in one of the wells at Wellsburg one year ago was about one huudred and fifty pounds to the square inch. To day it is scarcely one tenth that much. ) This is rather an extraordinary failure, and is much faster than any ot the others. It ia almost an unrersal complaint where the gas sand is fine grained, no matter how thick it may be, that a decrease in the supply is noticeable. It iB the belief of many whose investiga , tion of the subject entitle tbem to an opinion, that where the conditions for find ing gas are present that the supply in s , measure is inexhaustible. They attribut« I the decreasing pressure ot the gas to IIA1> CASIXIi, In many regions it is found that the casing has become completely filled up with i kind of magnesium deposit. Iu such in 1 stanees, of course, a re casting would be at ' adequate temporary remedy. In othe welis it has been observed that the cessa tion of the flow is due to a constantly in i flowing of water making deposits of smal sand, which fill the gas outlets This is i • result of bad casing where th< 'j water trains admittance above th - j gas rock, as it does in mos ! wells, but in th»1 wells at Wellsburg it i thought the water is present in the gas tan< ■ : itself. In the lutter event the problem c separating th« gag from the water had bes • > be submitted to a man of Yankee ingénu 1 ity to solve. A packer iu ^ualiy sutficien to overcome the former trouble. Th»*re i j no doubt but that an improvement in th . ■ manner of caoicg wells would aid mater » ; ally in overcoming the present difficult) . With better casing and mains the popul&i ity which the gas industry has lost in th last few daya might readily return.

The dwelling and contents are a total ruin. AKOTHEK IxrLOSlOS. At Sandy Creek, Pa . also occurred a natural gas explosion.

For some time past Boger 0 Mara, a I Pittsburg detective, has been on the trail j of one George Weiseman, of Martin's Fer ! rv, who seems to bear a rather unsavory reputation, but who is wanted particularly for the betrayal of a young lady of Martin's i Ferry, who had loved hiiu not wisely but J too well. Weiseman left Martin's Ferry on October 17th, where he had been em ! ployed as a drug clerk for Mr. D. Z. Mc I Swords, taking with bim a considerable amount of money belonging to his em ployer. During his stay about here he ; was identified in several scrapes, aotably ; one in a house of ill fame in this cit/,. whore his thumb was severely bitten by an I inmate of the house In this case he fig-1 ! urtd in the police court, under the high aoundiog alias of "Thomas Franklin.' Shortly after HIS F EHIRTI'RK from Mvtin s Ferry, he wrote Mr. Mc-| ' Swords a Utter and dated it at Denver, Colorado. The letter whs a very friendly one and was filled nlmost eulirely with news concerning himself and his move ments. A tew aaya later me poaimasier ai ueu ! ■er wrote Mr. McSwords and told him that 1 Weiseman's letter had been sent to him trom Independence, Kansas, with instruc tions to mail it from Denver and an injunction not to give Lia location away The postmaaier, thinking that perhaps the letter might be some fraudulent scheme to , fleece McSwords, felt it hia duty to warn him.
