session of Congress promises to be a long
and eventful one. First, there is likely to
he a'month lost in the election of a speaker,
for, although it is conceded that Randall
is in the lead, there is a well organized op
position, headed by Blackburn, and he has
said openly that in the event of his being
unable to get it he will see that Garfield
has it. So that a Republican speaker for
a Democriic house is not among the iuiposi-
bihties. While Randall is confessedly
in the house, there are many elements of
great strength that can be brought to com
bine against him, aud if he wins it will on
ly be by hard work. lie will bo opposed
by all the different lobby interests, such as
Texas Pacific nud other railroad iutcrests
who are seeking government aid, and if
these different corporationsexercise the in
fluence they ore supposed to have, the honor
may tall on Morrison or McMahon either of
whom would be more cxceptable to t tic
southern and Western members than Ran
dall. AFTER THE ORGANIZATION
of the house thi.'re will be little or no legis
lation of a general character until tho causa
which made an extra session necessary is
removed. A bill to repeal the election laws
will be among the first things acted on, and
if vetoed, which is most certain, it will
then be tacked on the appropriation bill as
before, and their ultimatum will be the re
peal of the '.aw or no appropriation. A Dem

president gave way, but there will be sixty
one new Democrats in the house who suc
ceed some of thei strongest Democrats in
th.it body, such as1 Potter, Hewitt, Schlei
cher, Lynde, Durham, Southland aud
others, and it is by no means certain that
they can be kept in the traces. If revolu
tionary measures are attempted the Green
backers will try to effect an organization
and will endeavor to seduce some of the
soft money Democrats into their ranks, but
it is doubtful if any will yield to their per
suasions. If a sott money Democrat should
bo selected for speaker they would prubu
bly combine with Southern members
with the understanding that they were to

committee. Randall claims, howerer, tho

did not attend the meeting of tho commit
tee in Chicago. It was not auch a commit
tee, in rny judgment, as should haw beea
appointed to perform auch duty. The mode
of investigation was not such aa to commend
itself to any impartial tribunal. The com
mittee was received and wined by tho of
ficers of the Pullman company. They
were allowed to be burlesqued
by -the press and a report
prepared by tho legal advisor of the cor
poration, which is presented as the report
of ha committee, being in almost his exact
language as found in a published Interview..
The investigation should have taken place
at Springfield; tho committee should have
had tho power to summon witnesses, to
send for persons and papers, and to perform
otherwise such duties and powers as should
belong to un investigating committee. , ' ' .
The failure to do this resulted, as is now
seen, in a whitewashing report or in no re
port except a statement by the company's
attorney, signod by a portion of the com
mittee. I have nothing to dowitli such an
investigation or such a report." Mr. Her-'
nngton then concludes that no investigation
is complete that does not tako into consid
eration the amount of capital stock paid in
originally; bow much it has been watered
since and the amount of stock dividends
that have been made und capitalized.'
'Only by knowing these facts," he adds,
can any committee nrrivo at the amount
which tho people have paid for the luxury
of maintaining sleeping car organizations."
Messrs. Granger. Murray, Thompson, Bis-'
bee and Buttcrworth will also present re- '
ports. The committee is very much split
up into sections, und neither seem to agree
with the others. The committee consists of
seveu members, and from it will emanate .
five distinct reports. The upshot of the
whole business will be that tho Pullman
company will still go on its way rejoicing
regardless of legislations or investigating

is little doubt that a report exonerating the
company from charges of extortion will he

BOYTON AFLOAT AGAIN.
HE COMMENCES HIS TRIP TO THE GULF A
SWIM OF TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED
For the past few days Rochester, Pa., has
warmly ilicussed the proposed voyage of
Capt. Paul Iloyton trom Pittsburg to the
Gulf of Mexico. Early Monday morning
thousands gathered on the bariVs of tho Al
legheny river, in front of the Robinson
house, to see the interpid voyager enter the
water. Opinions were expressed that even
the Captain's iron nerve would skrink from
tho sight presented in the river, as cake- af
ter cake of the heavy shore ice weut
whirling past in the swift current. As 8
o'clock, the time for the start drew nigh, and
no signs of Capt. Boyton were seen, it be
came evident to the waiting crowd that
there was something wrong, and they began
to shout vigorously. The cause of the de
lay was that when the Captain rse at 6
o'clock he found that he was suffering from
want of sleep. Boyton deprived himself of
rest last nigh thy lecturing in Allegheny City,
for the benefit of the poor, and the loss of
sleep, coupled with tho amount of brain
work he has been doing lately, brought on
a severe attack of vomiting. Then tho
usual breakfast of toast and eggs was eaten
and tho hero of the day once nioro donned
his rubber suit. A passage was clearod by
the police, from the hotel to the river,
through which Boyton quickly passed.
On repelling the water's edge he paused ,
a moment, and, stretching his graceful
form to its full hight, he said to the crowd:
"I have 2.200 weary miles of water be
fore me, the chain that binds tho North
to the jouth, . I cannot promise to reach
the Gulf, but I will do my best, and that is
as much as I have ever done."
Then he shook hands with his friends,
and the last one who grasped his hand was
Mr, Thomas McAffrey, whom Boyton re:u
at the very spot twenty years ago, With a
slow, tailored movement he made his way
over a huge cake of ice, and a loud splash
announced that the Captain was once more
afloat. Grasping his paddle he struck out
from tho shore for the channel current, in
which he soon floated with mi nature' ice
bergs and rubbish. Jn a few minutes ha
passed under the St. Clair bridge, whicJi
was dangerously loaded down with a yel
ing and cheering multitude,' who waived '
godspeed to the swimmer as ho glided into
tho Ohio river, just below the Mononga
hela, and soon La belle river was' bearing
him out of sight
Those who followed him along the west
shore could see that the ice troubled hint
considerably and time after timohe became
wedged In between tho block of ice, which
closed Inon him. When the channel narrowed
at Sowicklly he was sighted at IS :20 n. m.
and here the adventurous navigator found
the ice almost gorged across from shore to
shore, lie became faint from bis struggles)
to cut through the mass. At last he got
through,' And struck ahead, though, with in
tense suffering evident in every motion. He
was observed at Rochester at 5 :30 p. m., and .
soon Came' alongside the landing place,
where he was pulled ashore amid the wild
est enthusiasm and driven to the hotel in a
carriage. He is resting to-night and will
start to-morrow morning at daylight for
