The reported favorably for granting to the widow of Gen. J ames B. was placed on the calendar. The general deficiency bill was then taken up. A proviso, "recommended by the committee to be stricken out of the bill," That no part of the money priated for the xlistrict attorneys and their assistants should be used to pay special counselors, was agreeed to. Senator Hale explained that the strik ing out of the clause had no reference to the star route cas?s, but to the Guiteau trial. That was a laborions and protract ed trial, and the committee had not thought the fees at all unreasonable. On motion of Senator Sherman an item of $3,950 was added to enable the secretary of the treasury to reimburse the amount paid for the expeuse of the commission appointed to go to Louisiana in 1877, and an item was added authorizing the attor ney-general to pay Chas. H. Reed, for ser vices as counsel for the late Chas. J Guiteau, such a sum as he may deem just, not to exceed 53,000. The bill was then passed. The Atlantic and Pacific land grant for feiture bill was laid aside and the river and harbor bill taken up. On reaching the senate committee's proposed amendment appropriating $25,000 for the improve ment of the Coos river in Oregon, Senator Slater, aided by Senator Dolph succeeded in getting the senate to add $5,000 to the amount allowed by the committee. Senator Push hoped the senate would not agree to the recommendation of the committee, reducing from is3o0,000 to !2o0,000 the appropriation lor connecting the improvements of the lennessee river, including the Mussel Shoals, and tne sen ate disagreed to the reduction and replaced the original amount. Senator Williams urged a disagreement to the reduction proposed by the commit tee for the Kentucky river and other Ken tucky improvements. He also strenuously opposed the proposed reduction in the case of the Ohio river at Louisville. Senator Voorhees offered a resolution which referred to the committee on claims directing that the committee prepare a li3t of claims against the government and their probable amount and a digest of the regu lations for their adjustment. A message was received from the presi dent transmitting a communication from the secretary of the Interior, calling atten tion to the omission of any appropriation for the bureau of labor. Senator Blair submitted a proposed amendment to the sundry civil bill, appro priating 20,000 for that bureau. Senator McMillan gave notice of his in tention to move on Monday, to limit the debate on the river and harbor amend ments to five minutes for each senator. After an executive session the senate ad journed. HOUSE. The senate amendments to the legislative bill were non concurred in. The speaker stated that the regular order was a ques tion of privilege coming over from yester day and presented by a resolution offered by Mr. Cannon that the record be so amended as to show that the speech pur porting to have been delivered by Mr. Mc Adoo in which allusion is made to Senator Logan, was not actually delivered by him. Mr. Cox, of New York, after deprecating the practice of printing long essays in the Record, said the present dispute arose from the publication in the Record of a newspaper article stating that Senator Logan owned S0.000 acres of land. It had not been charged that he came by them wrong ruily. He, Mr. Cox, did not know that Logan was a dishonest man. What was the object of this discussion to day except to prevent an adjournment. In order to put an end to the discussion he moved to lay the whole matter on the table. Cries of good and vole. The motion was agreed to without a di version. Mr. Horr, from the committee on ap propriations reported the fortification ap propriation bill ; referred to committee of the whole. Mr. Randall, on behalf of the minority of the convention submitted a substitute there for some reference. The house then went into committee of the whole on the business reported from the committee on Jabor. The first bill considered was one provid ing for the adjustment of the accounts of the government with laborers, workmen under the eight arising and mechanics hour law. Mr. Lovering, in supporting the bill, said that every man who had been forced to work for the government ten hours for a day's wages since the passage of the eight hour law, had been defrauded of his legal rights. Mr. Tillman, of South Carolina, opposed the bill characterizing it as a claim agent's bill and the drawing of it would permit another raid of $30,000,000 upon the treas ury and not only permit a raid but create an aristocracy of labor. The bill would demoralize all private labor in the neighborhood where the gov ernment had any work going on. The great mass of the people did not want this law. It was only wanted bv some claim agents and doctrinaries who were too lazy to work and thought the world owed them a living. Mr. "Willis contended that the eight hour law was mandatory. Mr. i?oran denied that there was any ruth in the allegation that the bill was a claim agent's bill. Mr. Glascock advocated the bill. Mr. Browne, of Indiana, said as long as he eight hour law could not be made uni versal it was the worst kind of class legis- ation to declare that workmen in govern ment employ should receive as much money for eight hours work as their fellow laborers in private shops received lor ten hours. Mr. O'Neill, of Missouri, favored the bill. Mr. Struble opposed it. Mr. Hiscock suggested an amendment, changing the phraseologv of the bill by providing that labsrers shall be paid ten ! hours' wases for eight hours labor. If ihat amendment were adopted the govern ment could afford to make their demagogic speeches, and could talk about their hearts bleeding for the laboring men. Mr. Hopkins referred the gentlemen to the platform of his own party for dema goguers on this question. The resolution was amended so as to read as follows: "That whoever as a laborer, workman or mechanic is hereafter em ployed by or on be half of the government of the United States, he shall be paid for each eight hours he has been employed as for a full day's work." The second section was amended to cor respond with the first section, so as to ap ply merely to tke future. The committee then rose and the house adjourned. THE SPRINGER COMMITTEE. At a meeting of the Springer committee to day, Gen. D. G. Swaim and Gen. H. V. Boynton were called to corroborate the tes timony given by Woodward and afterwards contradicted by Cook. Gen. Swaim said that from the reputa tion of Cook he didn't think he ought to have been employed. He could not re member positively, but had the impression that the president had been informed of the character of Cook. It was Cook;s reputa tion that the president had objected to. The president was in a delicate position and could not take the inquiry out of the hands of the man to whom it had been entrusted, but he would urge the employment of men above re proach. The subject of the removal of Cook was frequently referred to by the president. Gen. H. V. Boynton testified immediate ly after Cook's employment he asked the piesident if it were true that Cook had been employed as a government counsel. The president replied that he had acquaint ance with Cook and asked the witness to go to the attorney-general and in form him of Cook's general character- The president characterized the employment of Cook as an outrage upon him. The witness had an interview with McVeigh and the latter said Cook was employed on the theory of setting a thief to natch a thief. The attorney-general said he knew all about Cook and he had employed him be fore he knew just what he was. As the witness understood Cook was employed in a detective capacity, and was not entrusted with any of the secrets of the case at all the attorney-general stated very positively that was the nature of Cook's employment. TRYING .TO SHIELD SWAIM. It is understood Representative Calkins headed the delegation waich called at the white house yesterday in an endeavor to induce the president to abandon the court martial of Judge Advocate General Swaim It is reported the president was firm in his refusal and expressed surprise that an om cer in Gen. Swaim's positLm did not insist upon a trial. The detail for the court will be announced without delav. The assistant adjutant general, Capt. Thos. Ward, of the first artillery, will be appointed to fill the vacancy in the adju tant ceneral's department, caused by the death of Col. Piatt. The English investigation will be opened next Tuesday.
