By the Wmy.
The substitution of the company's own
sleepers for the Fuliman cars has not as
yet made any appreciable difference in
comfort or charges. It coats $£75 for a
' berth and seat in the sleeping car from
* Heuwood to Wfehington—£2 to Cumber
land and seventy-rive cents for the balance
of the way—and a* it is only about twelve
hours run, it must be that something is
charged for the society of a porter who will
not black your shoes and a conductor who
forgets to wake you up in time for break
last.
At Martinsburg ex Senator Charlie Cald
well. of Parkersburg, got on and cheered
the balance of the war. Caldwell is getting
to look a Oe a I like
Bob iMffemwII,
and resembles him in other respects, with
the exception that he is orthodox in his
theological opinions. He told me he had
quit drinking—which was very fortunate
considering the fact that a leas considerate
\<\>iiipanieu had nearly exhausted my med
ical supplies between Wheeling and Graf
ton—and that he felt a hundredper cent,
better for his t.ual abstinence. He said he
found canvassing in aid of the prohibition
movement of considerable benefit to him
self as well as other people, and as tllustrs

referred to the famous apple orchard con
rveiition in Wetzel county to choose dele
gates to a Democratic Convention. It will
be remembered that Caldwell was its pre
«Mdine officer, and when he cam* to take a
vote by show of handa the boys held their
hands so high up in the trees that he could
cot rount them. "Tiierejwasa barrel of hard
«ider setting over by the fence," said Cald
well. "and I told everybody who was in
favor of the affirmative ol the proposition
to go over by the barrel. The conven tion
at < nee stampeded for the barrel, and,"
addtd the ea-Senator with a solemn smile,
"the force of old associations was so strong
that I came devilish near going with the
majority.'*
The PrvklkiUea Aaif*iut
I asked my converted friend what he
•^bought ot the probability of having a
prohibition amendment submitted by the
l egislature U is winter, and he said he
had not the slightest donbt bot that such
an amendment would be submitted at the
romi' g • ess-on. If this is not a temperanr*
legislature.he a<ided,|s majority of its mem
bers were eleeted with a fair undarstand
ing that they would at least give the peo
pie of tne State a chance to pass upon the
question. In that event he thought there
would be no doubt about the amendment
btlug made a part of tta organic law
of the State. The rural communities
would favor it and the churches would ad
voea'e it and it would be like the case of
the Kansas Dutchman w1k\ when urged to
stand up for lager and liberty, wanted to

tal telegraphy and other improvements
and additions to the public service are nu
merously represented in the new bills, and
judging from the propositions sent up dur
ing the past week, popular expression on
theae subjects has at least not been im
peded.
Weightier Matter*.
The weightier matters of the session in
shape of Internal Revenue reduction and
tariff revision may nut be taken up for
some days to come* and I can only send
you such forecast concerning them as can
be gathered from the expression of . indi
vidual members. So far the general talk
•a both has been in faror of holding; up to
' the recommendations t>f the Message con
I cerning the power and the report of the
Tariff Commission as to the latter. Ran
dall ia quoted by a member of the West
Virginia delegation as endorsing substan
tially the Tariff Commissioners and as fa
voring the adoption of the greater part
of their report
Mate Polities.
Getting back to State politics a gentle
man here who has counted cattle in the
wildest kind of stamped** and never miss
ed s steer, went over the list of candidates
I for Senator H. G. Davis' place yesterday
' with me, and counted twenty-three.
: These were not dark horses or compromise
candidates, or complimentary mentions, or
anything of that kind, but genuine blood
ed! duly entered candidates each one with
his mane and tail braided and running for
all there is in him.
The List at Senatorial Con did ate*.
I am not going to give the list for fear
the compositor* will leave some fellow out,
thus giving him a chance to say that I am
in a ring with the other twenty-two to de
feat him. but there are msny names and no
duplicates, anu the entries are not yet
closet).
Washington views, or rather the views
of West Virginians who come to and are
located at W ashington, on the status and
outcome of the contest have a pleasing
variety. Thus I find a good many who do
not believe
Menafor Davis,
notwithstanding his statement to the con
trarv, has any intention of retiring if he
can help it. "His cards do not amount to
anything." said an active wire working
politician who was here this week. "It is
true he may not be a candidate in the or
dinary sense of that term, but that does
not bind him to refuse either a nomination
by the caucus or an election by the joint
a*semoly. and if he were an outspoken
candidate be would not be in half as good
shape to be returned as he is now. His
position has encouraged every fellow who
thinks he has a chance to come in,and now
here are
A Heore of Control ant*
fightingeach otherand are liable tocontinue
fighting each other indefinitely. What will
be easier when these rough-and tumble fel
lows have exhausted each other and dead
locked the caucus, for Davis' friends to
bring him in again as a solution of the dif
ficulty. His present position antagonizes
no candidate; be has made a good record
here; he has the confidence of investors
who believe in his business sagacity, and
he can secure more money than he his al
ready brought into the State to improve its
material resources. That sort of argument
has weight at such a juncture. Then there
is the narrow margin by which a caucus
can control. It only takes ten votes with
the Republican representatives to control
the result"
l«*Mili( Out the «aa*.
To this sort of a reasoner. Senator Davis
is worth the whole field in the pools. And
yet beyond the popular impression that
when a man gets in the V'niteu States Sen- _
ate he wants to stay there indefinitely,'
there is no particular basis for discrediting
his dispositioa to retire. Nevertheless this
element of disbelief extends into the dis
russjon of other people's chances. "Tbf\v
say Davi-hs tv, iiaibows anu camden is
for Kcnna." said another West Virginia
politician a few days since. "Now, if that's
true, it's the first "time it ever happened
that way. I would not be surprised after
that to hear that Damon was for Albert
Lewis and Pythias was for l'at Tierney."
Third Dlnlrlet View*.
Truly the Washington world is a world
of unbelief. Turning from it to the purer
and franker atmosphere of the Third dis
trict, the expressions from that quarter
have a heartier ring. "We think Davis is
out entirely." said a representative man
troni the Mountain Knd; "but we do not
care whether he is in or out. The Third
district is entitled to the place, and we do
not propose to throw our chances away.
If kenna is the strongest man. we are going
for Kenna, if Mathews shows the most
strength, we are going for Mathews, and the
same may be said of Quarrier, Hereford
or any other candidate mentioned from
that section. I think you will find the
four men mentioned come up on the first
ballot with the thirty votes of theoldxhird
district pretty equally divided between
them, but there is not going to l>e any
deadlock or trouble about it. A Democrat
is going to be elected by Democrats.
Fair Maniple* of Talk.
This is a fair sample of the kind of talk
that goes on here from day to day. as peo
ple from the different portions of the State
drop in to get the political bearing or look
after business interests. I give it to you
and will continue togive it to you jnst :ts I
get it. and you can depend upon its entire
freedom from coloring, for this year I have
no candidate of my own. I had intended
to run Col. Alexander Campbell again this
winter, but as usual, when the time comes,
he is running in some other State, and this
year be is laying his ropes and planting
corn for next summer's cattish in Louisi
ana.

Wa3HIWotq», December 9.—A. corres
pondent of the Obicago Inter Oceia, Be p.,
mj«; The Governor of Ohio ms reported
to hare said In an interview printed in Cin
cinnati some days ago, that there wu noth
ing in the "Batterworth boom," so called.
The fatal blunders of Charles Foster in the
recent past deprived his personal opinions
on political questions of any weight. But,
for the present, Charles Foster is
Governor of Ohio, and, as such, his
utterances are, perhaps, entitled, to cor
rection, when they do not, by palpable ab
surdities or contradictions, correct them
selves. It i*. therefore, perhans worth
while to say that among the Republicans of
the Ohio delegation in Congress, the fact
that a very substantial "boom." so called,
toward the Governorship of Ohio exists
behind Major Butterworth as a result of
his admirable services to his city and his
State, and therefore biatparty, since he en
tered pnblic life, is as generally recognized
as is the fact that the State of Ohio went
Democratic last fall as a result of Charles
Foster'* foolishness, coupled with the
Blaa4«n of Ike Oblo UgUlatare
last winter. Your correspondent has con
! versed with the member* of the Ohio dele-,
ration since they reached Washington fresh
from their .constituency, and therefore has
no hesitation in saying' that of all the men
mentioned for the nomination, Butter*
worth ia most favorably considered by the
Republicans of.Ohio so far as their opinions
can be thus obtained. Your correspondent
ha* conversed on the subject with Bepub-v
lican .Representatives from other States,
who have aeen Major Botterworth
work in committee, and in the House, as
well as upon the stump in their respective
States, and without exception these gentle
men, some of whom know something and
some of whom know nothing of Ohio poli
tics, unite in the opinion that Major But
terworth is the best man in public life in
Ohio to-day for the gubernatorial chair of
thatState. It is difficult for some of these
gentleiren to understand how there can be
any hesitancy on tbe part of the Republi
cans of Ohio when snch a man is rendered
available for the nomination by one of the
accidents of politics.
THE JEANETTE INQUIRY.
Soar Interentinc Memoranda M«<l«
Pablie.
Washington, l>ecember !>.—The Navy
Department today made public extracts
from the memorandum of De Long,respect
ing tbe unpleasant state of things which
existed between De Long and Jerome Col
lins. Collins is charged with treating the
Captain with much disrespect, disobeying
orders, Ac. The extracts say that when
ColliBs went on the ship to make observa
tions, his practice was to remain longer
than necessary.* De Long's charge of dis
obedience was emphatically denied by Col
lins, and in a colloquy which ensued. De
Long says: "Collins was curt, contemptu
ous and disrespectful in both language and'
bearing, and that be threatened to report
bis conduct to the Secretary of tbe Navy."
A rough draft of the report to the Secre
tary of tbe Navy, covering the same ground
in detail was also made public.
In the Jeanette Court, to-dav.Ninderiuan,
in response to questions, said that in his
judgment everything possible was done to
etlVct the resciie|of toe crews of the first
and second cutters, and that he had no
chsTge to make against any one connected
with tbe expedition. In reply to»the ques
tion. "Is it or not a fact that during tbe
retreat De Long would order tne start at 5
a. x. and then lie in his tent until late and
cause delay, when not sick?" Witness
said. "No such thing ever happened."
Adjourned until Monday.
DEFYING PUBLIC OPINION.

Washington, December !».—Western and
Southwestern members of Congress are
anxious to pass a river and barbor bill,
notwithstanding that the report of the Sec
retary of War showed that about $17,000,*
0»i0 are yet available from past appropria
tions for tbe improvement of rivers and
harbors. It is learned that the estimates of
tbe engineer officers to carry forward the
work provided for under the last
bill were $3><,0G0,0OO. It is proposed by
several Senators and Representatives to
compel the Secretary of War to furnish
estimates by calling upon him through
resolutions of the respective Houses to
transmit estimates for particular objects
of improvement in which the constituents
of these gentlemen are interested. Sena
tor Jonas, for example, has introduced a
resolution in the Senate calling upon the
Secretary to furnish estimates for iuture
work upon the M'^iss'PP* river. 8imilar

Pitt*bi *oh, December 9.—The Ulk of
the town since Monday hu been tne re
port of the Tariff Commission; arid the
opinions expressed are as various as the
topics treated of in that formidable docn
ment. The iron men are reasonably well
satisfied as they are left about in stath»
quo, or if any thibg in a little letter fix than
they were before. Bat the men of steel
sre considerably disgruntled, particularly
those engaged in the manufsctore of steel
rails. The pig iron men are very much
dissatisfied that a reduction has been
made on pig iron, bat say they can still
make their business pay, but at smaller
profits. The reduction is only twenty
eight cents per ton. In view of the late
reduction in steel rails and the consequent
stoppage of some mills, with the declara
tion that American manufacturers could
not make these rails at a protk for less
than $43 per ton, the action of the Com
mission on these goods is of particular
importance. At the Cresson meeting of
the Commission when
The Meel Jfe*
had a full hearing upon their claims it
was represented to the 4'ommiesioners
that manufacturers of steel rails could
stand a tariff of one cent per pound, or
$22 40per.ton. but that anything less than
that figure would be ruinous. The
manufacturers had hoped by this
concession to save a greater reduction.
The duty recommended by the commission
is $17 92 per ton, $4 48 less than the lowest
limit set ny the manufacturer*. Mr. Thos.
Carnegie, of the Kdkiar Thompson Stael
Company. says that the report of the com
mission was a surprise to him in some re
jects. The most objectionable feature
was that changing the tariff on rails. If
the report was adopted by Congress it
would enable English makers to lay steel
rails down in New York at $42 or $13 per
ton. and by shipping to Southern or West
ern ports direct by ocean and river, can
possibly undersell the home manufactur
ers. If adopted Mr. Carnegie predicts that
we shall never see $50> steel rails acaLn.
What the steel rail manufacturers will do
about the matter Mr. Carnegie was not
prepared to say. A* yet they have taken
no concerted action, fml it is probable that
an eflort will be made to have that par* of
the report amended.
Wednesday a
Nwrfl Meeting of the Jf nuafae turerw
of this city was held fon the purpose of
considering the "state of trade.'' Hie gen
tlemen who were there have nothing to
say in regard to what transpired, and so it
can't be learned what their collective opin
ion is iij>on the "statu of trade." Hon.
Henry W. Oliver, a member of the Tariff
Commission, was present at the meeting
and was questioned very closely regarding
the »eport. He answered all "very fully
.ion aTAMfFlU.ta'Vfflft
very satisfactorily. At the close of ehe
meeting he was given a vote of thanks for
the servic e he had rendered the interests of
Pittsburgh.
A gentleman identified with the iron
trade offers the following explanation of
the action of the Commission on the steel
rail question: "The Commission had to
take into consideration all places and all
classes.' The territory wanting to use steel
rails represented a larger interest than
that of the a*anufacturers, and the Com
mission could not withstand the pressure.
The people building railroads and the
]>eople wanting railroads built deiuand
cheaper rails, and the Commission had to
concede something to those interests. If
the report is adopted it remains to be seen
whether American manufacturers cau i*
can not make rails for $42.
The Iron A|»,
presumed to be good authority in matters
pertaining to iron, in this week's issue sees
no excuse for alarm in the situation and
remarks the manufacturer* were more
scared than hurt. It predicts an early re
turn of confidence, which it admits has
been somewhat shaken. It says that the
spring trade will probably open six weeks
cariiw than usual and with a good prospect
of an active demand. Since the drop in
prices orders have been placed for over two
hundred thousand tons of steel rails. This
is taken as an indication that railroadmen
do lot expect lower prices, and, it is
thought will have the effect of stiffening
the market somewhat.
In regard to the outlook at Chicago noth
ing could be learned at the office of the
Amalgamated Association in this city.
President Jsrrett is now in that city for
the purpose of straightening matters out
if possible, but hai as yet made no repart.

to-day a small note appears, intimating
that the closing of the steel mills was a
preconcerted arrangement between the
manufacturers for the purpose of cutting
down the wages of their men. The shut
down is generally regarded as a necessity,
arising from the state of trade. One of the
furnaces at Braddock shut down Thursday,
throwing 200 men out of employment, but
the proprietors say it will soon be in blast
again. The Superior Kail Mill will put a
new furnace in blast next week, giving
employment to 125 men, showing that some
one, at least, is not lacking in orders for
rails.
The coal miners seem determined to
make another strike for the four-cent scale.
They are constantly holding meetings for
the purpose of uniting the men. The re
cent cold seems to have put new life into
their almost dead hopei. The President
elect is said to be agitating the measure
very vigarouslv. Whatever is the measure
of bis success, lie is certainly working hard
to inaugurate bis Presidency with a move
for an advance.
The lliar Operator*
say they will never pay four cents unless
the price of coal geta back to old time prices
again. If the miners insist on their de
mauds for an advance it will result in the
operators putting mining machinery la
the works and throwing moet of the sneo
out al toge tber. Machines never strike, but
they do not always work to as much ad
vantage as the machines run by a brain.
Many of the men thrown out of employ
ment on the Pennsylvania Company's
lines of railroad, last Saturday, have found
work on the Pittsburgh and lake Erie
road, the latter being engaged in making
some extensive repairs and improvements.
Judging from the holiday appearance of
the stores, one would not suppose that
money was scarce, or that it bad recently
beea scarce in the iron city. I have never
before seen such a diaplay of holiday goods
of all kinds, and particularly of the finer
and more expensive class. The jewelry
stores sparkle with diamonda and other
gems, the art stores are full of rare works,
snd the variety stores are stacked from
floor to ceiling with the latest novelties.
All these places are crowded with pur
chasers, who seem to have plenty oi
monej.

the Republican Senators since the discus

Mr. Hale read a circuit calliug a meet

to sM in defeating the faaatics and prohi
bitionists, and said he withed the investi
gation committee to summon Kdward
Cooper and ask him how much money the
Democratic committee in New York had
collected from liquor dealers there.
At ?o'clock, without actios on Mr. Beck's
resolution, the Senate resumed considera
tion of the bankruptcy bill.
Mr. Vance offered a resolution, which
was agreed to, directing the Secretary of
the Treasnry to furnish, as soon as possible,
a detailed statement showing 'he cost of
collecting the internal revenie in each
collection district; the number of em
ployes in each district, and the percentage
of cost upon the sums collectal in each
district.
Mr. Hawley introduced a bill, which was
referred to the Committee on Civil Service
Reform, to prevent officers of t'ae United
States from cullecting subscriptioas or as
sessments frem each other. The !irst sec
tion provides that no member or member
elect of either house of Congress or em
ployes of either bouse, and no executive,
judicial, military or naval officer of the
United States, and no clerk or employe of
en j- flepartmeNt or of any Branch
or bureau of either service, shall
directly or indirectly solicit or receive,
or he in any manner concerned in
soliciting or receiving any assessment,
subscription or contribution for any polit
ical purpose whatever from any offic«r or
employe of the I'nited States, or from
any person receiving any compensation
from the moneys derived from tue Treas
ury of the United States. The second sec
tion provides that any person violatingthis
law shall be deemed guilty of a misde
meanor, and shall, on conviction, he pun
ished by a tine not exceeding $5,000 or im
prisonment not exceeding three years, or
t>y such fine aad imprisonment in the dis

The Senate held a brief executive session
and adjourned.
Ho a we.
Mr. rsge, t»em the Commerce Commit
tee, reported a resolution calling on the
Secretary of War for information as to
whether the money appropriated by tSe
last river and harbor bill was appropriated
for works or objects not in the interest of
commerce and navigation, and if so. re
questing tUat the 8|>ecitications be fur
nished.
_ After th? reading of Mr. Page's resolu
tion, several amendments were oi&reti,
S^ViW'WSPriSfftfitrnAftTfl^inr fWfirtr con
sideration of the subject. Mr. Mclaue. of
Maryland, and Mr. Robeson,'of New Jersey,
making strong speeches in ita favor, Robe
son attributing that the strong opposition
to it came from the metropolitan newspa
pers in the interest of aggregated capital.
Mr. Co*, of New York, and Mr. Kasson,
of Iowa, renewed their opposition to the
bill and the members of the House sur
rounded the speakers and several times io
terrupted them with laughter and ap
plause.
The House finally adopted Mr. Pajje*B
resolution, and after transacting some im
portant business proceeded to the consid
eration of the Diplomatic appropriation
bill.
Just before the passing of Mr. Page's res
olution, that gentleman said the River and
Harbor bill was a good thing, despite the
fact that the ' howling demagogues' had
cried it down. The Secretary of War ought
to be required to explain why he did not
send in the engineers' estimates for the
work of the present year.
HMr. Cox, of New ^ ork, in a fiery speech,
opposed the resolution. He told Mr. Page
the howling demagogues seemed to have
a majority in his (Page's) distiict. and, in
fact, they" had a majority all over the coun
try. The people had set tlie seal of their
disapproval on the River and Harbor bill.
The River and Harbor bill members who
were not re-elected criticised the President
severely for vetoing the last River and
Harbor bill.
Mr. Kasson—I understood the gentle
man to blame the President for vetoing
the bill for the largeness of the appropria
tion.
Mr. McLane—That I did.
Mr. Kasson—In other words, the Presi
dent should expend all that is appropria
ted?
Mr. McLane—That is another question.
I challenge the gentleman to justify any
President who used his discretion after
Congress appropriated money.
Mr. Kasson—I accept the challenge and
agree that I will support any President,
Republican or Democrat, in expending as
little as he can, unless required by express
law to expend it. General Grant took the
ground of discretion, and further than
that. President Arthur, contrary to the
statement of the gentleman, vetoed the hill
on the grounds of extravagance and also
because it appropriated tor objects not
within the Constitutional limitation.
Mr. Cox inquired whether Mr. McLane
meant to say that the Representatives
from New York were influenced to their
action by railroad interests.
Mr. McLane replied that he had not ad
dressed himsei to the question.
After brief consideration the bill was
passed and the House adjourned.

A MADMAN S RIDE
To Escape Uw UairliM nribe Devil.
Lchjibvillh, K\., December 9.—A farm
laborer named John Hofl'. was braught to
the city this morning, tied to the bottom
of a wagon, and guarded by several men.
The poor fellow had becomedemented, and
imagined the devil was efcer him. ILis
friends paid but little attention to him un
til last night, alien, in his mad fears, he
rushed from the far m house to the stables
near by, armed himself with two pitch
forks, mounted a horse, and tied into the
cold, dark night, attempting to rid him
self of the imaginary enemy at his bark.
The horse frightened by the yell
ing: madman, ran away, but he man
aged to hold on. all the time nourishing
I his weapons. The farwers of the neigh
I borbooa mounted their hordes and pur
ged the mad fellow, who was now in the
road, now making his horse leap fences
and tlee through the fields. During his
ride he passed some horses, and, checking
! bis spesd, stabbed two of them with the
: fork so that they will die. At last the
horse he rode, exhausted by the terrible
speed, fell at a fence and rolled into a heap
by the roadside. The pursuers catue
up, and finding that HofT hail lost his
weapoas. soon had him in custody,
though 111 their dread of him tbey used a
lasso. He will be tried on an inquest of
lnnavy and sent to an asylum.
