If la Invastlgatlsis; a Recently Discovered Vain Senator Plumb! Beiolntlon Causes Considerable Talk In tho House Liquor a the Capital Other Notes. Washington, Jan. 27. Senator Sawyer, of Wisconsin, who has made a fortune in tho lumber business of the northwest, Is now rseeking gold within sight of tho dome of the capitoL Something more than a century ago gold was discovered in the vnlloy of the Potomac, and nug gets are large as grains of wheat have been found on tho siNATon BAWTxa. hills about Wash Ington. Recently it has been discovered that there is a vein of gold bearing quartz below tho surface and extending transversely to the bed of the river, where it outcrops. Tho vein is only a few inches in width and was discovered by accident Thoro is not much scientific warrant for tho belief that gold can be found in paying quantities in this vicinity, and the best ihformod men on the geographical survey do not have much faith In the alleged discovery. But it may bo well to remember in this connection that science has been able to ren der vry little aid of a practical sort in tho location of valuable ores and fluids. Whon an oil prospector seeks a spot on which to drill a new well he takes any advice rather than that of a geologist. The reason for this Is that the geologists have generally failed in their guesses, whereas the practical driler of oil wells, guided by experience and the work of others near, frequently succeeds in striking oil. Senator Sawyer has faith in the existence of gold in profitable quantities near Wash- 1 tngton. He has had the matter investigated by a friend of scientific attainments and of practical sense, in whom ho has great confi dence. Work has been in progress for flvo or six weeks and a small stamp mill has been erected for reducing tho quartz as it comes from tho shaft. The results have not ItAA. mbilfl Yv.il-.1f.. Tvi.fr ll la ..fit..!...! llir nn. derstood that they are of a satisfactory nature. I Tho average yield from a ton of ore has boon $33 worth of gold. This is a very hand some return, and if the vein holds out Sena tor Sawyer has got a gold mine of raro valuo within on hour's ride from his Washington residence. A Startling; Discovery. "Washington, Jan, 27. Tho resolution in troduced by Mr. Plumb, of Illinois, asking for an investigation of tho facts as to tho passage, engrossment and enrollment of the funding act, under which over $700,000,000, In four-per-ocnt bonds were issued, has boon received by the house judiciary committee, and a hearing upon it will probably be bad next week The resolution causes consider able talk in the house. Curious disclosures are expected, which may involve tho valid ity of all. four-per-cont bonds outstanding. When Mr. Plumb' found that the journals of the houso and sonata showed tho bill as passed providod that tho government might redeem these bonds at pleasure ''for thirty years," instead of "after thirty years," as the published law puts it, he examined the engrossed bill and found that the word "for" bod been erased all but the "f," which was left in the same ink as tho rest of tho bill, and that tho letters "aXand "ter" were in serted in another ink. .It indicated a .clear case of tombering, by which it is estimated the government locos a largo sum. Mr. Plumb called the attention of Senator Ed munds to the matter, and, after looking into it carefully, he said that it scorned to him ttbat the bonds issued under the act were in valid, 'or 4sa were redeemable by the gov ernment t will. ' Prohibitionist Storming the Capital. Washington, Jan. 27. The Prohibition ist of tho country are becoming very so licitous about the welfare of the District of Columbia. Petitions to the senate commit too on district affairs are pouring in from all parte of tho United States. Some remote little town in Wisconsin sont in a petition tho other day praying congress to prohibit the liquor traffic in and about Washington. Tho Prohibitionists aro making a concen trated and systematic movoment on the Na tional capital. Agents woro sent out some timo ago to secure signatures and potitio'ns, and tho petitions aro now coining in with great frequency. Nearly every morning that tho senate is in session boiuo of the sonators find ono or more of these petitions on their desks. Many thousand names have boon obtained and tho number of signatures is increasing daily. Tho Republican senators aro largely in favor of prohibiting tho tralllo in tho District of Columbia, but it is not likely that a bill will be passed this bossion to effoct that result. Congressional News. Washington, Jan. 27. In tho senate to day a uumbor of petitions wero presented in favor of internal arbitration, retaliation for exclusion of Amoricon products from Eu ropean markets, etc. Mr. Allison reported favorably the bill to appropriate for experimental agricultural stations, and endeavored to socuro immediate consideration, but failed. Tho calendar was theu taken up, and bills of minor importance woro passed in their regular ordor. Tho sonate at 2 o'olock, by a vote of 55 to 7, possod tho bill granting a ponsioa of $3,000 to tho widow of Qon. J. A. Logan, and on motion of Mr. Vest, tho bill granting a similar pension to tho widow of Gon. Frank P. Blair, was passed. After tho passage of ho Logan nnd Blair pension bills Mr. Blair took tho floor for ft. speech on tho educational bill. ' At 2:40 tho sonate wont into secret session. Senator Edmunds in executive session favorably roportod District Attorney Hogo and Judge Montgomery, of tho District of Columbia, and tlioy wero confirmed. - At 2:60 tho doors were reopened and" tho senate resumed tho consideration of thq odu cuiional bill. TaaifliEiaA f VsaV?wMLall Tfcet Ha jLWr Tho hodse committee on' foreign affairs to day agreed to report favorably tho joint resolution of Mr. Belmont acceptling tho in vitation to this country to participate in tho French exposition, beginning at Paris on May 5 next, in celebration of the fall of ihe Bastilo. It was shown that all of the mon archial governments have so far refused to participate in tho exposition, and that ,it tliereforo appealed strongly for co-operation of the American republic. Tho bill appro priates ICMO.OOO, and as amended provides for the appointment of ono commissioner geueral, at a salary of $5,000, a(doputy at '$J,600, nluo sub-commissioners at $1,200 each, and an honorary commissioner from each of tho states, to serve without pay, all to be appoiutod by. tha president, , instead of by tho governors of tho statos.and tho prost dent, as at first proposed. OFF THE COAST OF MAINE. Rigging and Dock of a Sohooner Heavily Coftted With Ice. Poutland, Me,, Jan. 27. Three, feet of ice covered tho decks of tho schooner Eliz U. Smith as she was towed into pork. Every stick, every ropo was the core 6f an icicle, and tho ship looked like an iceberg. It seems that soon after she started from the banks for home a thick mist, .almost a rain, set in. The sea was very high, and the schooner frequently shipped water, and every moment added to tho ico on every part of tho craft. All attempts to cut it away proved worso than useless, for it tirod out the mon without doing any real good. The jib was carried away, and then it was found to be almost out of the question to manage the sails. Tho shrouds became one mass of ice. I Tho men sufforod intensely. Capt Hillier called ono of tho crow, a hardy follow named Harry Stock, to the wheel Ho hadn't been there more than ten minutes, as tho captain thinks, when ho was discovered to be almost dead. Tho intense oold had almost stopped tho flow of blood, and, aa it was, his, face and hands were badly frozon. ) Whon the schooner was 150 miles from , Portland, the sails woro frozen so completely ', that it was .out of tho question for tho tired crow to handle them. A great sea cams over to windward, knocking Capt Hillier down and then sweeping him with it. , When going over tho rail .he caught and held on. 'TWE WELLINGTON MINE DISASTER.
