FROM WASHINGTON.
Our Strongr-Mlnded Slater a Sub
mit Arguments In Favor of
Femalo Suffrage.
Washington, D. C, Marcli 8. Argu
ments In favor of the proposed Sixteenth
Amendment to the Constitution, giving
woman the ballot, were heard by the
House Judiciary Committee. Mrs. Mo
Clcllan Ill-own, of Ohio; Mary K. N-iS-Cart,
ul Indian; Florence Halleck, of Il
linois, and Phoebe Couzius, of Missouri,
were among the speakers.
Committee on Expenditure;.
Wamuxuto.v, D. C, March 8.-The In
vestigation before the House Committee
on Expenditures was opened at ten
o'clock this morning. Mr. Gibson was
heard in explanation of his connection
with tho Star-routers. He said he was
paid $5,000 for his services, and thought
he was under paid. He tabulated the
excesses of the Star-route expeditions.
No new information was brought out.
lie stated that the Government Intended
to proceed against the contractors by
Grand Jury, but the Grand Jury ad
journed before conclusion had been
reached,
The flrst renort of witness was to the
Attorney-General, who submitted it to
Congress with his annual report. About
this time It was announced by the press
at the instance of the Department of
Justice, which was arrayed on the side of
the accused, that he had no connection
with the departments. From that time
the connection of the witness terminated.
The Department of Justice published
statements that witness had no authority
to make the report. Witness thought it
was the work of Woodward. The report
was sent to Solicitor Phillips, but a re
ceipt by the Solicitor-General was re
fused. On December 1st, 1881, Mac
Veagh addressed witness a letter compli
menting him on the character of the re
port, also a letter to Solicitor Phillips en
dorsing the complaint to witness.
The inspectors acted under the di
rection of witness; during the investiga
tion witness said he was actually aud con
stantly employed from April twenty-sec-ond
to some time in November, 1881,
working fourteen hours a day, Including
Sunday. He had advised the prosecution
of other routes, but Bliss overruled him.
The Attorney-General paid no attention
to the Star-route cases, but entrusted all
to Bliss. Witness at one time recommend
ed that proceedings be Instituted against
Kellogg relating to the San Antoulo anc'
Corpus Christi routes, aud wrote out a
basis for the prosecution, but the Attorney-General
didn't avail himself of the in
formation. Witness met Merrick, attor
ney for the prosecution, and told him he
didn't know what he was about ; that he
had taken the wrong route, and' the case
was being laughed out of court. Upon
the authority of Merrick the witness stat
ed that the prosecution acknowledged
that the first trial was a failure, aud that
theGovernraent had been unable to prove
a conspiracy.
Committee adjourned until Monday

of A bra in S. Hewitt say that he Is lying

"Oil, THE SNOW!
"The Beautiful Snow! It Saves the
Wheat and Will Make it Grow."
Nokomis, III., March 8. Snow began
falling here about noon yesterday and has
continued iucessantly ever since, with no
prospect of ceasing at en o'clock this
morning. The farmers say it will be an
excellent thing for the wheat in this sec
tion. The fall has now reached a depth
greater than has been experienced here
for years.
at edwardsvili.k, ill.
Edwarpsvii.lf, III., March 8. Several
Inches of snow and hail fell here yester
day and last night. The farmers are
hopeful that the wheat crop, has suffered
greatly this winter from dry, freezing
weather, will be greatly benefited by this
6now.
AT MATTOOX, ILL.
Mattoon, III., March 8. The three
or four inches of snow that fell here yes
terday and last night is considered by
the knowing ones as ft great blessing.
The wheat crop needed a covering very
badly. It will be worth thousands of
dollars to this county.
AT CLAHKSVIM.E, MO.
Clauksville, Mo., March 8. A heavy
snow storm raged here yesterday after
noon aud last night, covering the ground
with several inches of snow. Pike
County's principal crop, winter wheat,
will be incalculably benefited by tho
storm.
AT HIGHLAND, ILL.
Highland, III., March 8. Suow fell
here last night to a sullicient depth to
cover the wheat. This assures a much
better crop than was anticipated.

prospect.
THK SITUATION AT COUNIXG.
Father O'Boylan's Trial Postponed
Fublio Sentiment.
New Lexington, O., March 8. Tho
preliminary hearing of Rev. Father
O'Boylan, pastor of the Catholic Church
at Coming, began yesterday. He is
charged, in connection with about
a dozen others, with assault with in
tent to kill Andy J. McDcvltt. Ex
traordinary Interest waa manifested,
and long before the tlmo set for tho
case to be called the court room
was crowded to suffocation. The prin
cipals for the defense did not nnlvo till
three o'clock, and then the prosecution
was not prepared to proceed on account
of the absence of important witnesses,
and asked acoutlnuauce till this morning,
but the question was argued for s me time
and the case went over till 9 a. m. The
magistrate is a man of about elxty-flvo
-ars, of more than ordluary Intelligence,
and is inclined to do right by all parties.
Religion and sectarianism is pretty
effectually eliminated from the case.
There would ho a great sense of
relief If the evidence could show that
O'Boylan is not blameable for the assault
on McDevitt. The defense is Inclined to
make capital out of tho request for con
tinuance on the part of the Stato. The
latter argued at length that their prin
cipal witness was the editor of the State
JiHirnul, who had a number of cards writ
ten by O'Boylan condemning McDevitt,
which were held by request of the former
after lie had sent them. The cards appear
this morning, and denounce McDevitt
as an untried murderer, and points
to evidence of his alleged guilt
l the killing of Quickbaum, of
Pennsylvania, about a year ago. The
Mickey lynching complicates matters.
The arrests in this caNe were brought
about by McDevitt, and it will catch
some of his closest friends. McDevitt
was among the crowd that witnessed the
lynchiii;:, and efforts will be made to
bring him iuto the affair, as well as for
the murder of CJulckbaum. Kverythingat
Ketiville and Corning is quiet, aud as tho
strike continues everybody Is idle
McDevitt returned yesterday to McDon
oii'!i the coat the latter gave him tho
night of the abduction, he being one o'
the party, and at the same time began a
suit for 3,000 against him for damage to
business. None of the balauce of the
prisoners under arrest for the abduction
are worth anything. An effort was made
to get a compromise between the par
ties to-day, but without avail. A strong
feeling prevails against Father
O'Boylan, because it Is reported that
he locfcvd the door of the church on Sun
day and made his congregation take the !
action they did, and then the next day
said prayers for the lynchers. If these
things are proved there will be a warm
time lu the valley. The Catholic Colum
bian, the ollicial organ of the diocese, and
under .the personal supervision of Bishop
Wattorson, defends O'Boylan in an edi
torial of a column's length.
Jl OGKl) AUTIST3.
The Experienced Counterfeiters All Be
hind the Bars Petty Coniakers.
Chicago, III., March 8. Captain Hall,
of the Secret Service, has returued from
Fuller County, where he was called by a
telegram announcing Jhe arrest of two
counterfeiters. The offenders are Dan
iel Feaster and Frank Arnold, residing
near the village of Smithsfleld, and it was
found that they had as yet manuf ictured
only seven pewter dollars and passed
only two. The prisoners were taken to
SpriugiVitf. "We are bothered a good
deal by these petty coniakers," said the
Captain, "but their work .is so crude that
the person who is deceived by it must be
either near-sighted or stupid. The days
of scientific counterfeiting seem to have
gone by. It is only occasionally that you
see a counterfeit bank or treasury note
floating around, and even then it is one
of tho old issues. Tom Condon and Er
vin White were among the most
successful counterfeiters this coun
try ever produced, and they
are hoth doing time in King's County,
New York, where they were sent for thir
ty years. Condon manufactured the stuff
from plates cut by White, who was a fine
engraver. Ransom W arner, a notorious
circulator, is serving a term of eight
years in Sing Sing, while Peter McCart
ney, another clevei' distributor, Is an in
mate of the Michigan City penitentiary.
Ben Boyd and Tom Ballard, both splen
did engravers, are both behind the bars,
and Miles Ogle, the Cincinnati man, who
made some clever Imitations of the In
diana V. and Treasury X., has just finish
ed a term at Pittsburgh. Joe Gordon, of
Philadelphia, is in durance vile, aud Johu
Doyle and the Brockway gang are also
living on prison fare. Of the western
gang, there were Nels Drlggs, old John
Hill, Big Jim - Coueely, Dow Crockett,
Alex. Murpo aud others, all doing time at
Joliet. About all the professional coun
terfeiters seem to be out of harm's way,
and these petty amateurs, who are try
ing to make cheap Imitations of the silver
dollar, are not going to cheat tho govern
ment out of any considerable sum."
An Immigrant Robbed.
Vincennes, Isn., March 8. A verdant
German emigrant was relieved of his
pocketbook aud $175 in cash, by two
disciples of the light-fingered gentry, at
the Union Depot, this morning. Among
the money was a one hundred-dollar
bill, the pick-pockets spotted him at
Washington on tho west-bound train,
and when the train arrived at the Union
Depot, in this city, they got in their
work as the passengers were leaving the
coach. His name is notkuown. There
have been no arrests as yet.

Win. Jarrell.abrakeman on the C. & V.
Railroad, slipped off the platform of a
north-bound train at Brucevllle, this

lie was brought back to this city, and at
this writing is resting easy.

THF NATIONAL HOST.
President Arthur As a Dinner
Giver A Moat OLarming
Entertainer.
Brilliant Eeceptiona, Unsurpassed Deco
rations. Easy aud Pleasant Manners
and Perfect Etiquette.
An Old-Tlme Stag Party, to Which
Fifty Bachelors and, Graaa
Wldowera Are Invited.
Washington, D. C, March 8. Presi
dent Arthur has fully vindicated himself
as an entertainer and has lent a charm to
the White Houso festivities which they
have not possessed for lo! these many
winters. Said a real nice naval officer to
a C'n'fic reporter : "Tho receptions have
been brilliant, tho decorations unsur
passed, tho entertainments frequent, tho
manners easy and pleasant, the etiquette
perfect, and everything has como up to
the highest expectations. On Wednesday
evening the President will vary the pro
gramme by an old-time stag party bach
elor dinner. Fifty Senators and Repre
sentatives who have never shouldered tho
matrimonial yoke will be invited, if that
many cau be found, and if uot tho list
will be filled out by Senators and members
whose wives are not with them In Wash
ington. "The President Is courageous, too, in
his entertaining, and a good manager.
He has boldly expressed his intention of
seeing that every Senator and every mem
ber is at least once Invited to accept tho
hospitality of the White House at a
state dinner, aud this has never been at
tempted before since the Houso has as
sumed such large proportions. Thero is
another thing that people do not properly
appreciate, and that is the perfection of
arrangement and absence of confusion
at the White House dinners, There never
were dinners given to such large numbers
of guests in tho state dining-room, aud
they never were so well managed."
BLKXSIMiS IV DISGUISE.
What the Woman of To-Day is Doing to
Conceal Her Charms.
Philadelphia, Pa., March 8. A well
dressed lady went luto a fashionable
Chestnut street clothing house yesterday
and asked to be measured for a pair of
trousers. After she had been served an
attendant said to a reporter; "We make
men's suits for ladies right along. I don't
know what this party wants with men's
clothing, for we i.. vm- ask, unless they
choose to tell. We make a good many
fullsuits. This pair of trousers is for a
very pretty little lady who looks so petite
that you would never suppose to look at
her that she would require so large ..size.
She is having three suits made. One is a
knock-around suit with a single-breasted
sack, another is a full-buttoned blue
frock, with fancy lining, and the other
has
KNICKERBOCKER IIREEC'IIES.
We think nothing of It. We make all
kinds."
"Keally, what in the world does Miss
Dickinson want with trousers?"
"I can't tell you, only she has them.
Maybe they are for riding or for ludoor
wear. We are In the habit of making all
her trousers, anyhow. Why, women
folks say that trousers are a great deal
more comfortable, and thoscwe make for
them have always been very successful in
fitting."
From other sources it was learned that
while men's trousers are not likely to be
adopted by any ladies in Philadelphia for
out-of-door wear, there is a tendency on
the part of some of the ladies in this
city, who are recognized as fashionable
ladies, to have their spring street cos
tumes this year more comfortable and
simple, and iu some respects resembling
men's dress. A prominent firm of tailors
are making a good many coats for ladies
that are almost similar to coats for men.
A number of ladies have already appeared
on the streets with men's vests, showing
shirt fronts and neckties.
Lang-try's Loans.
New York, March 8. Mrs. Langtry's
mortgages on New York real estate ag
gregate 03,000 in amount. This money

000 on the residence of Mrs. Imogene G ran
berry, 2!) West Fifty-third street. Another
mortgage represents a $20,000 loan on
the house of Win. Messenger, on the east
side of Eighth avenue, ubove Sixty-sixth
street. A house and lot on the west side
of Eighth avenue, north of Thirteenth
street, owned by Matilde Le Comte and
others, Is mortgaged for $10,000 to her,
fiml her last Investment was 12,000 in
a mortgage on a piece of property belong
ing to Joseph Kallsh, and situated on the
west side of Third avenue, between
Eighty-eighth and Eighty-ninth streets.
According to tho records in the Regis
ter's office Mrs. Laugtry has not yet pur
chased any New York property.
An Utopian Scheme.
Pittsburgh, Pa., March 8. Several
labor leaders are working aud circulating
a petition which Is to bo presented to
Congress, asking them to provide a sum
of money from tho surplus currency In
the Treasury for colonization purposes. It
is proposed that ten million dollars be set
aside for tho purpose, which would sup
ply a hundred thousand families with
five hundred dollars each, aud granting
fifteen years for tho payment of the mort
gage to bo taken on the land for its pay
inent, aud allowing tho settler to pay for
a homestead (10 acres) In five years at
par, and over five and under ten years at
one percent, and over j and at ten years
at two per cent. The petition is being
largely signed at all points of the State
where It is presented. It is no political
measure. The petition bears the signa
tures of leaders of all parties. Laboring
men aro united in tho request that such
provision bo made.

Gordon's advice.
Cairo, March 8. General Gordon in a
dispatch this morning recommends an
immediate attack on Osman Dlgna by
General Graham. If the rebel force re
tires from its present position Graham
should content himself with merely de
stroying the enemy's camp and not at
tempt to follow tho rebels up, as hid
horses are too inferior to allow of pene
trating to any considerable distance Into
the country. The rebel horsemen are
well mounted, and would considerably
weaken Graham's forces by keeping up a
guerilla warfare which would probably
end in a disastrous defeat, as the rebels
would be constantly receiving fresh addi
tions to their army. The farther Graham
marched into the country, ho would have,
in addition to harassing attacks from tho
enemy many hardships to contend with,
and perhaps meet a fate similar to that
which befel Hicks Pasha.
London, March 8. General Graham
has been ordered not to advance unless
he is sure of finding tli3 enemy. There
will be a cavalry recounoissance to-night.
Osman Digna is urging his followers to
light, assuring them that success is cer
tain. He will watch from afar as they dQ
buttle, luvokingthe blessing of Allah.
Germany.
Berlin, March 8. Minister Sargent
has decided not to resign, ho will submit
the matter to the authorities at Washing
ton. The Deuh-lte Tayebltitt, calling at
tention to what it i pleased to call "Sar
gent's Incompetency," as compared with
his predecessors, says: "We believe tho
American government is ignoring the fact
that Minister Sargent has exposed himself
to ridicule. He cannot remain at Berlin
without affecting tho relations of Ameri
ca and Germany. His stay will also be
offensive to the Germans iu America."
