Saya III. l'realilcnt Would Ignore It Even If Tawed Over Hin Veto Trouble May He unit. Hut No One Want. War Talk Now. (From Our Regular Correspondent.) WasiiinoTon, Dim. 21st, There is grout danger that tho merits of the Cuban question will bo entirely overlooked in tin) wrangle that is likely to follow tho extraordinary position taken by Secretary Olney, that Congress has nothing to do with the roeognit ion of anew state, the power being vested in the Presi dent Mono. Mr. Olney first publicly took this position in a discission with the Senate Committee on For- oign relations, before that committee had decided to report tho Cameron resolution for tho recognition' of the independence of Cuba. After the Committee hud decided to report the resolution today, Mr. Olney wont a great deal further, by making a statement through the Press Asso ciations, saying in effect that the President would veto the resolution if it was adopted and tluit even if it wore then readopted by the consti tutional two-thirds of both branches: of Congress ho would ignore it and treat it simply as tho personal opin ions of those who voted for it. If it were not that this administration had such a short time to run there is reason to believe that if Mr.Cleve land dared to maintain this position the country would see another im peachment trial in the United State Senate, and evon as it is it may lead to serious trouble. This question is higher than party poli tics or than tho Cuban question. If tho President has the constitutional right to override two-thirds of Con gress, which may be considered as fairly representative of the poople, it is time that the people know it, in ordor that this enormous power, greator than that possessed by tlie crowned heads of most of tho world's limited monarchies, may be curtailed by a constitutional amend ment bofore some unscrupulous President uses it to destroy our Government. It is hardly probable, however, that this question will get before the United States Supremo Court for settlement in connection with the Camoron resolution, for the very simple reason that the Cameron re solution is not likoly to be adopted by both branches of Congress, not withstanding its having received the endorsement of the following emin ent gentlemen, who compose the Senate Foreign Committee : Sher man, of Ohio;Frye, of Me., Lodge, of Mass., Cameron, of Pa., Davis, of Minn., Cullom, of 111., Gray, of Del., Turpie, of Ind., Mills, of Texas and Morgan, of Ala., Daniel, of Va., is also a member of the committee, but he was not present at tho meet ing and says he has not made up his mind whothor he will support the resolution or not. The resolution will almost certainly be adopted by the Senate, probably by more than a two-thirds vote, if it be seriously pushed that far, but if expressions of leaders of the Ilouse count for anything, it will novor roach a vote in that body. Gen. Henderson, of Iowa, voicod this sentiment when ho said : "We are not going to have war. The Cameron resolution has not passed, and I don't believe in encouraging this war talk. We have had enough agitation already, and we don't want our business in terests again Interrupted by talk of war or by actual war." It is the impression in Washington that by the time Congress reassembles, tho country will have made it so plain that it wants neither a war nor a war scare that the resolution will not be pu.sliod. It was brought out by questions of Senators during Secretary Olney 's unsuccessful attempt to persuade the Senate Committoe into following Mr. Cleveland's policy towards Cuba that the administration has received much credit to which it was not en titled, by reason of misstatements in the newspapers as to demands it has from time to time made on Spain in behalf of American citizens. For instance, Secretary Olney ad mitted that this Government had no demand upon Spain in the case of the alleged filibuster Competitor, and others of a similar oliaractor, be yond mere requests for information. This will doubtless greatly shook the individuals who only a short time ago slopped over to tho extent of writing communications to the papers advocating Olney's appoint ment as President MoKinloy's Secre tary of State, becauso of his intenso Americanism. His "intense Ameri canism" seems to lie like Li Hung Chang's conversation, mostly in terrogation points. Among tho bills passed by the Houso was ono appropriating $100,- 000 for Government participation in the Tennessee Centennial to be held at Nashville next year and :)0,000 for a Fodoral building for tho ex hibit, and an Emergency Deficiency Dill appropriating nearly $s)00,000 for tho completion of Naval work now under wny. A resolution was also adopted giving the four days beginning .Ian. 7th to tho considera tion of the Pacific Railroad Funding Bill. Tho holiday recess will bo from Doc. 22, to Jan. 5, and many Senators and Representatives who live at a distance and wish to spend Christmas at their homes have al ready loft Washington. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. Chronic Diaeaac and Unfounded ProHccu tlon the Canae. Henry Ellsworth Montross pro prietor of the hotel at Layton is lying at the point of death from a pistol shot wound in the hoad. The shot is supposed to have boon fired Sunday morning about 7 o'clock.and to bo self inflicted. The ball hns not been extracted, and death would seem to be inevitable. Mr. Montross has excited the wonder of the medical fraternity by his won derful fortitude, and vitality, in so long surviving a wound tluit would ordinarily prove fatal at once. The precise particulars of the act does not interest the public as should the motive. While distorted rumors have got abroad that family troubles or financial difficulties were the cause, I can -state positively that neither is correct in any particular. His lainily relations were pleasant, and his financial situation was not such as to cause him any uneasiness whatever. It may seem to be tres passing upon delicate ground, but in the face of false rumors, and dis torted facts, which always travel with greator celerity than the truth, I fool it my duty as a neighbor, and friend, to set right as far as my direct knowledge extends, the sim ple facts as I know them. Mr. Montross for at loast eight years has probably not known a single week in which he has not boon a sufferer from a chronio and painful stomach malady, but while he was of a ner vous temperament, and resontcd an injury, or wrong quickly, he readily and gonorously forgave, and always tried to resume friendly intercourse at an early day. Not making due allowance for the nervous strain endured by him, through long years of suffering, and of which he gave remarkably little outward indication in his appearance or actions ; many who should have been his friends participated in shallow persecution, and annoyances, which were both unmanly, and ungenerous. This carried over a long period of time, and coupled with his physical in firmity, could not at t otherwise than to cause a feeling of depression that would make tolerable at times the idea of eternal rest, and quiet in the grave ; and for them, should be a thorn in their memory for long years to come. Appreciating as I do all these varied and depressing in fluences, I can readily understand an act, that many not conversant with tho situation may hastily con demn. For Mrs. Montross, and daughter Grace, the entire com munity are in docjxsst sympathy, and vie in rendering every assistance in their power. h. O. A. K. Klecta Officer.. The members of ACol.

A fire broke out early bust Mon day morning in the dwolling house of Christian Hermann on Water street. Neighbors by prompt action succeeded in saving the building and the damage done to furniture and house will amount to only a trifle. The sheriff sold last Saturday at the Court House the property of Aaron Kaplin, 350 acres in Lacka waxen township to Hy. T. Baker, Esq., for $350, and the property of Miranda H. Shimmel in Milford Bo rough to J. B. Westbrook, judgmont creditor for f 1,400. Some gentlemen backed by a large capital are securing options on clay lands in Monroe county. Some eighty tracts so far, aggregat ing six thousand acres have been ob tained. Experiments have been made and it is said there is scarcely a limit to the variety of goods which can be produced from these clays. The Independent says that t he bill introduced in the Legislature two years ago, and which passed both Houses but was vetoed by Gov ernor Hastings, to apportion the $10,000 annual bonus paid by the Erie to the State between Pike and Susquehanna counties will be again introduced at the coming session. Erie to Elevate Track. The report ( urrent that the Erie will elevate its tracks and terminals in Jersey City, and abandon the tunnel under Bergen Hill to freight traffic, taking all passenger trains over the hill by elevated tracks and through an open cut, is said to be confirmed by General Passenger Agent, Roberts, who says tho limit of accommodation in the tunnel has been reached. The noise, smoke, gas and dust in the tunnel always was an obnoxious ending, or begin ning, to an otherwise pleasant ride over a road fumed for its scenic beauty. Killed at Pike Street. Beattie Herbison a resident of Port Jervis, aged 55 years was in stantly killed at the Pike street crossing last Friday morning. The gates were down, but he attempted to cross the track in front of a mov ing engine, slipped fell and was run over, and his body badly mangled. THE 1'IKE COUxNTY COUKTS.

The December form of court con vened Monday, presided over by Hon. G. S. Purdy, president judge, and John D. Houck and William Mitchell, associate judges.

Case to tho bridgo over Dwartskill wore in a dangerous condition. Tho court appointed John C. Wal lace as foreman of tho Grand Jury after which tho jury was given tho usual chargo and retirod to thoir work. John A. Fisher was solectod to wait on tho Grand Jury, and Joseph D.

Mrs. Driller made some remark about wheels being ridden without a light which was the cause of Miss Hartz's anger. The defendant and witnesses for her testified that as they were passing the Driller house two of Driller's boys stood in the way obstructing them that they re quested the boys to desist, and Mrs. Lomsche was obliged to dismonnt, when Mrs. Driller came out and struck Mrs. Hartz a blow in the face. There was evidence of previ ous difficulty between the princi pals, and the use at the time of some epithets more pointed than polite. The history of the affair was related on one side by Mr. Dril ler and his family, and the other by the defendant and her two com panions.
