Washington, June 2S. The
reported favorably for granting

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
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
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
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
Mr. O'Neill, of Missouri, favored the
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
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
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.
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 question was ruled out After the case

as an admission that the accusation was
true and it would be an injustice to Mr.
English not to let him reply to it. On

and English put on the stand.

the firm to purchase for his account, three
hundred shares of Western Union and
three hundred American cable stock which
they represented they bought. Goodwin
gave them as a margin eighteen shares of
other cable stock owned by him. A few

stock, but it was entered in the books by
Ward as purchased. Ihe farm hypothe
cated all the stock deposited by Goodwin
as margin, and this Goodwin seeks to re
cover, claiming that tne Iraud on the part
of ward puts him in the position of a
simple depositor and not as principal in a
