WASHINGTON. SffiN, GBAST ENDORSES tOGAN FOR PRESIDENT. Characterizing Him as Possessing all the Most Desirable Vluiracteristics of the Cit izen-Soldier—United Stales Marshals in the South Getting Jiig Fees by Summon ing the Voting Population of Whole Counties as Witnesses—A Convict as Dep uty Umted States Marshal—Postal Rec ommendations. * LSpecial Telegram to the Globe.] Washington, Feb. 10. —Among the latest curiosities of official conduct on the part of United States marshals, and their depu- j ties, which have been brought to light by | the Springer committee, are the summon ing of the entire \otiBg population of counties to testify in relation to frauds in the sonth. This occurred in one connty in Alabama, and two in Texa«, and the num ber of witnesses in these cases ranged from 1,700 to 2,000, when, according to special agents of the government, ten witnesses would have been sufficient. It was a method of earning fees. SWINDLING COMPEOMISES. In Texas, a district attorney named Guthridge, compromised a claim of the government of $50,000 for $5,000, although the government held a judgment on realty that would have fully covered the claim. The defendants only had to pay the at torney $500 for this favor. He has been dismissed from office. The Springer committee has called for papers in the cases of Ottman and Lewis for the purpose of throwiBg some light upon them. Ottman was tried twice for robbing the treasury of a package contain ing $-10,000, but escaped by favor of Wash ington juries and the mysterious influ ence that surrounded the trials here. Fin ally, the case was compromised for a pit tance and the swag divided between the thieves and attorneys. The committee want to know the details of the matter. A New Jersey crank named Lewis be queathed $1,500,000 to the government home years ago. Claims of false heirs were set np and it co3t the government $400,000 to get the money. Deteotivea filed a bill in the case amounting to $27,000, bet a part of this was disallowed There are so many cases of crookedness in connection with the law department of the government that, the investigation com mittee cannot complete its work for month?, although its sessions are held almost daily. GEN. GBANT ON LOGAN. The Capital claims to have conversed with Gen. Grant in his sick room on pol itics, and says: 'The ex-president consid ers Gen. John A. Logan as the most avail bble candidate of alt those named, and one whom he would not only support himself, but a candidate whom he would ask all his friends to support. He remarked that he had Known Logan from the beginning of the war, and he culd testify that he pos sessed the ability, courage, obedience and endurance of the citizen-soldier of our great country to as eminent a degree a3. the most distinguished in its brilliant array In public affairs, he said, Logan has courage of hi3 convictions. He assert3 the integrity of his own character even in his own politioal matters, and that could not always be said of men in politioal life and in private life, he added, there is not a man to my knowledge who stands out so notably as a type of honesty of purpose simplicity of life and virtue. The general further observed that there were others also who would fill the office with great ability, men like Edmunds, of Vermont. But his idea seemed to be that Logan was more a man of the people. It was evident that there were those whom the ex-pre3ident think? it would be suicidal to nominate, and who, in fact, would not receive his support. He did not wish to be specific, but would only say it might be wiser in making the nomina tions to regard the harmony of the party. POSSIBLE INJUSTICE DONE DOUGLASS. The statements that have come from the department of justioe seem to have done an injustice to ex-Marshall R. M. Douglass, of North Carolina. Douglass was investigated some time ago by two special agents, Bowman, representing the department of justioe, and Farney representing the treasury. Bowman testi tied npon the Springer committee yester day that during the whole time that Farney was nominally attend ing to the investigation he was so drunk as to be absolutely incapable of asking a question or understanding an answer, and that when Bowman returned home he reported the facts and refused to join with Franey iu] a report, but made one of his own. Bowman testified that in stead of withdrawing his books, Douglass offered every facility for making hiB in vestigation and when Douglass was in formed that his deputies were making charges that the department would not allow, he made them point out these items and with his own hand drew a line of eras ure across them, but there left untouched a good many fraudulent items which Douglass knewabont and Bowman thought he ought to have made his deputies verify every item after he found what they w ere doingr Since then frome dispnte|with the department of justioe has occurred and Douglass refused to furnish certain book*, which he claimed were his private account books, but he states that he furnished all his official aocount books and, farther more, that he sent hi3 accounts up here be settled and they are stopped in the treasnry department. They are in the hands of Fnaey, above mentioned, who will not audit them out of spite. Doug lass says that while he was marshall, he was taking two convicts to the peniten tiary when one of them, a notorious desperado, esoap9d and he never succeeded in oapturing him, but^his successor, Tom Keogh, late secrerary of the Republican national convention was now successful. He caught this fugative from justice and made him one of his dep uties, and so retains him. He performs all the duties of a deputy marshal, except that a feeling of delioaoy deterred him from going into the court room of the jadge who pronounced on him tho sentenoe he had never undergone. Mr. Douglass says there are 60,000 white Republicans in Ncrth Carolina, to say nothing of the col ored ones; and, but for snoh soandals as this, and divisions in the party the Repub licans might hold the state easily. DELATED WESTEBN MAIL. Twenty thousand pounds of mail mat ter from Chicago and the west arrived in this city this evening. This inolndes let ter!' an! papers covering dates of the 6th, 7th and 8th. The latest Chicago papers received here np to noon today were those of last Sunday. Yesterday morning's mail will probably arrive at a late hour to-night. A letter which Congressman Dunham mailed to his wife from Chicago on the 5th just was handed to Mrs. Dun ham this^evening, several hour3 after her husband's return. A LOGAN LOVE FEAST. The meeting of the state central com mittee in Chicago this week will be a gen nine Republican Logan love feast. Greene B. Ranm was at the capital Friday and Satarday of last week, trying to disoover how many Illinois politicians would at tend from this point. Gen. Raum is a Lo gan man and he is anxious that Logan shall be elected to the presidency, for in that event he will endeavor to succeed him in the senate. Clever politician here wonder at Logan's impudence in allowing his name to be so freely used in connec tion with the presidency. | Western Associated Press.] A FLOOD OF BILLS. Washington, Feb. 10.—More than 4,500 bills, most of them of a private na ture, have been introduced in the house. I ess than 200 have been acted upon by committees and reported to the house. To morrow another opportunity will be offered to increase the number of pending legislative measures. BILL8 THIS WEEK. Randall will oall up the naval appro priation bill on Tuesday. It is probable that two days will be occupied in its con sideration. Tho bill to prevent the spread of contagious diseases among cat tle, it is expected will be brought before the house for further disot.s-*ion in the latter part of the W66k, and it is barely possible the shipping bill will also be reached in oommittee of the whole by Thursday. In view of the for midable opposition already manifested against the naval bill, the members inter ested in its passage are apprehensive it will not command a majority vote. EETIItEMENT. The retirement of Gen. Alfred Pleas anton as brigadier general will be the question to be considered on next Friday, ••private bill day." It is believed the bill will pass without serious opposition, as the committee in making the report re counted the brilliant and effective service of Gen. Fleasanton in the Mexican war, and made a strong report in favor of his retirement with the rank specified. COMMITTEES WILL BEPOBT. The committees of the house have a number of important measures on their dockets for oonsideration this week. The ways snd means oommittee will hear the ! arguments of business men on the various phases of the proposed tariff legislation. It is believed by the members of the oom mittee, that Morrison's bill will not be re ported to the house for three or four weeks. The public lands committee expects to take action this week on bills to provide for forfeiting portions of the land grants of the Northern Pacific and Atlantio and Pacific railroads. The coinage, weights and measures committee will probably re port a bill providing for the withdrawal of trade dollars from circulation. A SQUABBLE ANTICIPATED. The foreign affairs oommittee has re solved to insist that the house should re fer to it the correspondence received from the state department last week, to relieve the prohibition on American pork in for eign countries, on the ground that the question Is one of treaty obligation. The commerce and agricultural committees, however, both claim jurisdiction on same subject and the question of reference will probably give rise to a spirited discussion. The senate is not likely to reach any measure of national importance this week. POSTAL BECOMMENDATION. QThos. G. Smith, of the postoffioe de partment, who was detailed by the secre targ of tho treasury, to examine and re port upon the postal methods of foreign oonntriei ha3 completed his labor and pre sented this report. As the result of his investigation he recommends the follow ing changes in our postoffioe system. There are, he says, in round numbers 48,000 postoffices each a receiving and disbursement offiae. Of these 6,500 do money order business acd 41,500 collecting revonue from stamps only. Each postmaster is authorized to return his salary and authorized expenses from the revenues he collects. I would disoon tinue a direot accounting with the 41,500 postmasters, supplying them with a limit ed stock of stamps on credit, and requir iug them to purchase at a designated money-order office in the vicinity, all they required thereafter. At such supply offi ces they would receive their compensation and authorized expenditures. The re maining 6,500 postmasters should account monthly direct to this office, with quarter ly accounting. The postmaster general cannot be informed of the receipts and disbursements for the first half of the fiscal ysar until the last quarter has commenced, and the liabilities under his ooutrol for entire year therefor has been incurred. With monthly accounting he could be ad vised of the revenues and expenditures of within thirty days from the expiration of each month. Work of posting and stating the general post office accounts now re quiring thirty-three clerks, would be dis pensed with, when the accounts under pre sent system were closed, while the business of the stamp and finance division of the assistants offiae be largely reduced. Smith suggests that a return to fixed salaries will reduce the labor of post-masters, with a record of pieoes handled or stamps can celled in each quarter, with fixed salaries in even dollars,! could be established, to be [raised or lowered as business is increased or deoreased. He thinks the benefits of the money order system can be partially extended to the 41,500 smaller postoffices by furnishing, as stamps are furnished, a fractional note of convenient denominations, less than $1, payable at its face value at any money order offioe, thirty days after date, stamped thereon, when sold by the issuing postmaster, and after such date to be redeemable at Washing ton, at a fixed disoonnt or to be absolutely void, thus keeping it out of general circu lation. This note is to be issued without fee, being simply a substitute for stamps in remitting. Time Shortened. St. Louis, Feb. 10.—Commencing to-day, the Missouri Pacific ra'lrcad shortened its through sleeper service between here and San Francisco, and wiil hereafter make the run in less than live daj s. These sleepers go via tho Iron Mountain, Texas Pacific and Southern Pacific route, and run daily, leaving here at 9:20 a. m., and is attracting so much attention that the company is frequently obliged to add another car to accommodate the travel. Association Formed. St. Louis, F3b. 10. —A mutual benevolent society was organized here to-day for the coloni zation of Jewish refugees from Russia, on lands in the west, to be acquired from the govern ment. A large number of carpenters met this afternoon to consider measures for a complete organization of their craft. The wood engravers also held a meeting and concluded to organize a union.

CRIME. A SON MUBDEBS HIS FATHEB. Uniontown, Pa., Feb. 10.—Last night, at North Uniontown ship, three miles east, was the scene of a brutal murder, the -victim being an old man sixty years of age named Alpheus Wil son, and the murderer his son Frank. The two had been drinking together and had a quarrel, which ended in the father ordering Frank to leave home. The latter complied, but in ten minutes returned and called his father outside. The old man started for the door, but before he could reach it, Frank drew a revolver and shot him dead. The parricide then went to the house of Dennis Springer, a short distance away, where he remained all day, threatening to kill anyone who attempted to arrest him. This evening Sheriff Sterling and two constables went to Springers, snd after some little trouble captured him, but not before he attempted to shoot the officers. On the way to the jail he passed his fa: her's house. His mother came out to see him, and he told her that he intended killing the old man, and was intoxicated when the deed was done but it made no difference. EEVOLT IN CRETE. Constantinople, Feb. 10.—A revolt has broken out in Crete, ia consequence of a Turk ieh attack on tho privileges of the Greek patri arch. The leading Cretans declare they cannot obtain redress, and have therefore taken to arms. The Porte sent orders to the authorities at Smyrana and Salomca, to dispatch to Crete all the available sold\er6, to the num ber, at least, of 5,000. The Porte is sending troops to El Hedjaz, Arabia, where emissaries of Elmahdi are fomenting disturbances. TROUBLE OX THEBORDER. A Band of Mexican* Expected to Cross the Rio Grande into Texas After ino Mur derers, but Met with a Warm Recep tion. San Antonio, Fob. 10.—Trouble is appre hended r* £*gle Pass, and the authorities have bo m in secret, communication with Gov. Ire land. Enough is known to warrant the assertion that the sheriff of Maverick county anticipates a raid from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande and is anxious for reinforcements. Capt. Shirly, of the Texas ranges, has been tele phoned for with all the troops at his disposal. United States Marshal Gosling is a!so wired to for armed assistance. The raid is doubtless for tho capture of two sus pected criminals held at Eagle Pass, whom the American extradition agent refuses to surrend er, in view of the recent riling of the secrotary of state, in the ca»»e of the trouble with the al leged train robbers. The prisoners being held are accused by the Mexican authorities of mur dering Manuel Rodyguez, at Sanagosa, Mexico, on the 7th inst. The deceased was shot early in the morning, five buckshot taking effect in hit head and the upper part of his body, dying in ten minutes in great agony. The murderers were trailed to Pkdora Negras, where they orossed into Texas. Rodyguez wan a prominent mar chant and an influential citizen, and his friends are de termined to bring the assassins to justice by force of arms if necessary. Marshall Go sling leaves Sari Antonio with a posse by the first train for Eagle Pass, where the invaders will be received with ball and buckshot, should an at tempt be made to cross the river with aa armed force, or to capture tho prisoners in the hands of the Miverick authorities. A correspondent of trie Gulve-.tou A'* ies accompanies the relief force. Hard I,i ves. Laeedo, N. M., Feb. 10.—The looomotive en gineers of the Mexican National railway, be tween Laredo and Saltillo, Mexico, have or ganized as a body and will this week present to the company their resignation en masse unless some protection is guaranteed them against ar rest, and indefinite imprisonment in Mexico, when in discharge of their duty they inadvert ently run over and kill a Mexican who careless ly gets upon the track. The determination is brought about by the case of tho unfortunate Engineer Gardner, who several weeks ago, ran over and killed a Mexi can walking across one of the railroad bridges, near Saltillo, and who has ever since been incar cerated in the jail at that city. The engineers say they are require! to run on schedule time, and it often happens that it is not in the power of the railroad appliances to stop in time to preyont running over the dare devels who get on tho track immediately in front of the loco motive. Reception to Archbishop Ryan. St. Louis, Feb. 10.—Quite an elaborate re ception was given Arc hbishop Ryan by the cler gy and laity of th<s Catholic church this after noon, at the academy of the Christian Brothers, five miles from the city, in honor of his return from Rome, where he attended tho recent coun cil of American bishops About 200 persons were present. Brother Virgil, president of the academy, on belialf of the clergy, and Father Phelan, on behalf of the laity, made brief speeches, to which Archbishop Ryan replied, giving a hasty sketch ef his visit to Rome, after which a banquet was served.

LAND LEAGUE MEETING, Interesting Meeting of Irish Citizens and Spirited Addresses, The Hon. Ed. McDamott succeeded in getting up an attractive programme for last evening's meeting of the Irish National league. After piano playing by Mr. Wall, Judge J. B. Quinn delivered a tine address on the Irish question, in which he dwelt on the futile efforts of Ireland to break her chain through revolutionary upris ings. He reviewed the insurrection of 1798 and other spasmodic efforts, made by men who be lie re I in physical force to achieve the independ ence of Ireland, and pronounced them abortive failures. The land league agitation had effected the union of Irishmen throughcut the globe, and especially in Ireland. The cry that the Irish people are incompetent to govern themselves, is no longer believed, as it was previous to the inauguration of the league. Thoughtful British statesmen aro now declaring that Ireland is able and en titled to govern itself. The league has proved a great educational force, and he was confident before the present agitation ceases Ireland will obtain absolute independence. Nothing short of complete liberty will satisfy the Irish people. Mr. Roberts recited the well itcown poem, "Fontenay," and was succeeded by P. H. Gibbons, who gave the "Irish Lad dies." Messrs. Conlyand Shadrick spoke on "Manhood Suffrage in Great Britain," and held diverse views on the subject. The chairman, Mr. McPartland brought the excercises to an end by delivering a spirited address on the present aspect of the Irish question in parlia ment. THE MABQUIS TSENG. London, Feb, 10.—Tseng, the Chinese ambassador, denies that he is going to Paris to resume negotiations with the French government on the Tonqnin ques tion.
