Special to tho Engle. Washington, .Tuly 6. With reference to the explanations of tho Brooklyn Congressmen In tho House yestorday tho Post this morning says: "Tho explanations mado yesterday In Congress concerning the allegod abaonco of members who were officially recorded as having voted wore satisfactory to the gentlemen involved, to the Houbo and to the Pott, and will doubtless be satisfactory to tho public. One exeollont effect of tho talk has been to call attention to an abuse which has oxistod in the House for a generation and which ought to come to a ppoedy ond. It Is well known that mom - bers have various methods of getting on record after tho close of tho official roll call. Ono method la for the member to riso in his place, allogo that ho wa3 in the House but did not hear his name called, and ask to be recorded. The Speaker has naturally taken his word for it and amended tho record. Sometimes, when too late for oven this, members havo succooded In Inducing tho gentleman In charge of tho Official report to add their names as present aud voting, aud this has sometimes occurred after the house has adjournod and hours subsequent to the roll call, In which they desire to figure This last was a vicious bequest of tho old llepublican House, aud was a part of tho Republican machine. It is high time for this irregular voting to end absolutely, legislation cannot bo eafo If a member is freo to procure a record of a vote he did not cast in tho wayai.d atthotlmo prescribed by law. The vohi - clo may sometimo be disastrously upsot if legislation bo driven with too freo a rein. Now, let us abandon Hopubllcan devices, rub out old scores and begin anew."

A Conference Held in the City Hail To - day His Honor Waited on by the Com - mittce Appointed at Tuesday Temper, ance Meotlugr A Tilt Between Commissioner Schllemann and Mr. Ide The TJhctissioii has a Satisfactory Result. Mr. Whitney Defines His Position At a temperance mass meeting held in Dr. Pontocost's Church Tuesday night a comml'.toe of flvo was appolntod to wait on the Mayor and present a resolution adopted at tho mooting calling for tho resignation of Excise Commissioners Cunningham and Schllomann. Mossrs. W. T. B. Milll - kou, John S. Stanton and Edwin P. Ide, of the commltteo, call d on the Mayor at 11 o'clock to - day aud presented tho resolution. The Mayor summoned the Commissioners before him, and for half an hour there was a very lively tilt between the committeemen and the Commissioners, the lnttor emphatically denying oil the oharges made against them. Mr. Mllllkan began the discussion by stating the object of their visit, and In a modorate tono suggesting a way the Commissioners could romody the evils without making themselvos unpopular with the politicians and tho saloon keepers. He had said but littlo when Mr. Ide, who appeared as a substitute on the committee, Jumped Into tho discussion and said that the Commissioners had a moral responsibility In the matter which they could not shirk. They had no right to ignore the petition of three hundred citizens against a saloon and grant a license on tho .petition of two or three citizens, as they did at tho corner of McDonough street and Reid avenue. Com. Cunningham Wo never granted a license on petition of only three men. Mr. ide Thon call it thlrtoen men. In theoasa referred to there were only thirteen names on tho petition. You aro bound to respect tho right of citizens to petition. On several occasions you havo refused to let uh soe potitions filed in your office in favor of granting licenses, and I protest against such action. Com. Schllemann We acted fn tho matter with advice of our counsel. Petitions are not public documents. Mr. Alillikeu If the Ezclse Commissioners desire to restrict the number of saloons, they can do so without making invidious distinction in the caso of any Individual. You can make rules In conformity with the law. I have been a member of an excise board and have had experience In tho mattor. Pass a rulo that a person who has sold liquor without a license or has violated tho law in any way Is not a moral man, and to such you cannot give a llcouse. By adhering to auch a rulo you would soon decrease the numbor of saloons In this city and in such a way as not to make you or the administration unpopular witu any class of citizens. Mayor Whitney Gentlomen, I have had several conferences with the Commissioners on this question, and I agroe with you that too many licenses have" been granted. The Commissioners Intend to correct the impression that has gono abroad in regard to tho matter by granting a less number In the future. There is no disposition to grant licenses indiscriminately, at least none on my part. Mr. Millikou Of course Mr. Mayor you can't bo personally responsible for all that happens, but when you are told as wo hare been by Commissioner Schllemann that tho only way wo can prevout tho granting of a license is to buy the property, thon I think you havo a very grave responsibility In the matter. Mr. Ido (to tho Mayor) You wrote a letter to the commissioners asking them not to grant a certain license. They did grant the license and your lotter had no weight with them whatovor. Commissioner Schllemann No letter was sent to us by the Mayor; at least we roceivod none. Tho Mayor I sent a letter asking the commissioners to come to my office. Sir. ide Well, your Influence bad no weight with the commissioners. The Mayor (to the Commissioners) It was understood at ono tlmo that that license should not be granted. Cora. Schliemann I never made any promises to any ono. I voted for tnat license and am not ashamed of it The Mayor There is no intontion on the part of the authorities to outrage public sentiment In regard to the liquor question. Wo intend to faithfully enforce the law. 1 admit too many licenses have boon granted in the past Com. Schllomaun This is a growing city and the liquor business is an Industry that is not going to stand still. ' Mr. We Wo Intend that It shall. Com. Schllemann You aud men like you go to oxtremes in this matter and causo a groat doal of unnecessary trouble. Mr. Ide felt very much hurt at this insinuation, and attempted to show that ho was not an extremist "You roalgnod your momborahip in tho Republt - cau General Committee, did you not? " usked Commissioner Schilmaim. Mr. Ido I am Btill a mombor of that committee. What I Intend to do is a manor for the future. We are talking about tho past The most I have ever asked you to do is to obey the law. Com. Schliemann You bring us good Droof that the law has not been obeyed and wo will rovoko the license. The Mayor Wo waut to strictly enforce tho law, and If it Is vlolaled we waut liconses revoked. I intend to have the granting of licenses restricted and have told tho Commissioners to time and timo again, and if they don't do so. I shall do my duty toward them. Mr. Ido We say that Brooklyn neods no more licenses. Mr. J. S. Stanton said that the Increase In the city's population was largely of the order loving people and not of tho drinking class, and therefore there was no domaud for more saloons because tho city had grown. Mr. Ide had another grievance. He complained because petitions which were presontod against a certain saloon did not hold in forco in the case of a saloon a block away. Ho contended that where a petition against the granting of a license was sent In, it should cover all applications for licenses within a radius of three or four blocks. " Prominent men and men of large wealth," continued Mr. Ido, "in this city say it is a dastardly outrage tho manner In which liconses have been granted in this city. They talk on the subject louder than I can." Commissioner Schllemann They can't talk any loudor than you can, Mr. Ide you aro a vory loud talker. The Mayor (to Commissioner Schliemann) If we havo done wrong. John, kg must correct our mistakes. You know I told you so before. Mr. Mllliken and Commissioner Cunningham held a privnte conference while part of tho above conversation was going on. Mr. Mllliken was very well pleased with the result of tho mooting and at the attitude taken by the Mayor. He said ho believed the tomperanco people would havo their rights respected In the futuro and that Mayor Whitney would be on their Bide. He asked the Mayor if the committee could report that he (the Mayor) was In favor of restricting the granting of further licenses, 'iho Mayor ropliod that his position was siated correctly. The genllemon then retired. AS AWKWARD PREDICAMEHT. Mr, Van Shaik'u Iivorcc Slay l.apno for Want of Money. Mr. Roderick, of Carpenter & Boderick, argued at length this morning before Justice Dyk - inau for an order under tho provisions of which the fees of the referee in the divorce suit of Ulla Van Shaik against Stephen Van Shaik must bo paid. Tho defendant was formerly chief engineer on Jay Gould s yacht, was also engaged at the High .Bridge Aqueduct and on other large works. Ho states that his salary amounts to $18 a week. After being ar - rostod some time since for non payment of alimony ho deposited $1,000 with the Sheriff as baiL " 1 can't make any such ordor," said Justlco Dyk - man; " there is no law to compel a man to tako up a referee's report" "Butthowholo thing will lapse on Tuesday unless It Is filed," said Mr. Rodorick. " If your Honor will grant an ordor compelling him to pay $333 a3 counsel fee, wo will tako up tho report and remit our feos rather than that the trial should prove abortive" " Can't do it," replied tho Court " The man only earns $18 a week. It must cost him $10 a week to live in Brooklyn and his wifoican havo tho other $8 a week as alimony." Mr. Rodorick was continuing his argument, stating that Mrs. Van Shaik had no moans with which to take up tho report, when the Court closed the discussion with. " Mr. Roderick, I like you very much and I like to hear you talk, but I shan't chango my ordor unless you can show by Monday next that the defendant has some more property." A LAPSE OF MEMORY Which Saved Rufe Miner From a Term of Imprisonment. " Rufe " Miner, the notorious bant thief, who was arrested two weeks ago on suspicion of having been concernod with two other men, still at largo, in tho stealing of $100 from William Trott's saloon, on Flatbush avenue, was arraignod before Judge Walsh this morning. Mr. Trott could not swear that he had over seon him bofere, neither could his son, who' was Instrumental in making tho arrest This remarkable lapse of memory on the part of the two complainants was Instrumental In procuring the prisoner's acquittal. No other evidence was adduced and Mr. Miner was Informed that he was again a freo man. ANNIE HCGARBITY ABBKSTED. Annie McGarrity, a. woman who occasionally makes matters lively in Bond street, where she lives, was arrested last evening by Detective Rorke, charged with drunkenness.

The Measure Changing Inauguration Day and tho Soauloits of Conurean. Special to the Eagle. Washington, July a ThoSonate several weeks ago passed the Joint resolution providing for an amendment to tho constitution changing the day of Inauguration of the President from March 4 to April 30 and extending tho short session of Congress to the same date. This matter Is now slumbering In the Houso Commltteo on the Judiciary and there seems to be but slight prospect of Its receiving consideration in the Houso during the prosont session. Representative Tucker, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, says the question of changing the day for Inaugurating the President Is not so serious as the question of extending tho session of Congress. In his opinion sessions of Congress should be Indeflnlto and continue whllo there is business to be transacted. Ho Bays ho Is In favor of a change In the time for holding Congressional eloctlous, as under the present system electlonB for a coming Congress are held before the second session of tho body then sitting. The effect of such a system is that during tho first session a new member is so sensitive to public opinion and so anxious about securing a re - election that hla use. fulnoBs Is seriously Impaired. If the desire for a re - oloctlon could be removed from his Bight until after he has served a full term In Congress, he would probably be more usef ul to hla constituents. After the re - election is secured a change comes over the average member of Congress and he does not care what ho does, In other words, he becomes indifferent. Mr. Tucker says he has consulted the friends of the Senate resolution with a view to amending it to conform to his Ideas, but he does not bolleve any action will be taken until the next session. Representative Hewitt says be is heartily in favor of the proposed chango In tho inauguration day, and he is also la favor of changing tho time for the sitting of Congress, bo that the sessions would be more equally divided. He Bays thoro Is no reason why Congress should in one year romain In aosslon during June, July and porhapa August, and in the next year adjourn early In March.

The Ponder Evidently Protected with Corks and the Barrel Filled with the Fluid The Startling Discovery Hade by Mrs. Hofllaeker A Ltmg Series of Bisfortunei Ending in Suicide. Julius Hofflacker sat, at 11 o'clock last night, In a rear room on the Becond floor of the three story brick building, 415 South Fourth street. Seatod with him wero his wife, his 18 year old daughter and three sous, being all of his family except three other children, who are marrlod and Hvo elsewhere. The family group had boen conversing pleasantly together, but ( Hofflacker waa rather dispirited and did not talk much. Ho was at one time a prominent business man In tho Eastern District, but during the past twelve years had not only been unfortunate In business but bad been suffering from a complication of maladies which made life almost Intolerable. About twelve years ago ho had a sewing machine shop at 1)9 Scholos street and a tailoring establishment in Leonard streot, betweon Mesorolo and Scholos streets, omploying numerous hands, when his foreman, running away with $fl,00U' worth of goods, destroyed him financially. Then camo sickness. About nine mouths ago his oyoslght became impaired and he underwent an operation whioh partially rolievod him. About six months ago he undorwent another operation tho removal of a tumor. Latterly he had become troublod with insomnia. For some time past he continued, with tho aid of his wife and children, to carry on the tailoring business on Broadway, but four months ago he moved with them to South Four'.h street Mrs. Hofflacker stated to an Eaole reporter to - day the occurrences of last night and this morning: "We were about to retire," ihe said, "but my husband said that he felt so warm he would sit up a while. He had a German newspaper In his hand and proceeded to road it About 1 :30 o'clock this morning, finding that my husband had not retired, I rose and In going to the rear room, found that it was fastenod from the Inside. I tried to open it; called to my husband but he did not answer, and then a horrible feollng took possession of me. I went down stairs, thinking that he might have gone to the stoop, where the air was cooler, but he was not there. Then 1 went back aud tried to open the door again, but in vain. Then I woke up the family and sent one of the little boys to get an officer. He could not find one, so we sent for my son In law, John Gohrhold, who lives In Bartlott street, and he brought two officers who broke In tho door and we found my huBbaud sitting in a chair at tho window dead." The reporter on going upstairs found seated In an arm chair at one ot the roar wlndowB tho body of a heavily beardod German, his body and lower limbs in a line and his head hanging over the back of tho chair; a doublo barreled cap fowling piece hold by both hands in a lino with his head, tho trigger near his right foot On the tablo beside the body were a glass funnol and a glass. Tho oack of tho chair and about three feet above It was spattered with Hood and brains. Smaller spots and blood stains were found on the table. Tho loft side of the man's head was in a condition similar to that of a collapsed balloon all fallen in. He had evidontly placed tho muzzle of tho fowling pleco In his mouth and discharged tho contents into the loft portiou of his brain, blowlug off part of the crown of tlio skull. On the table was a scrap of paper lorn from tho flyleaf of a Bible, which also lay near it The paper contained a fow sentenoos In German in tho handwriting of the deceased. This is the translation : Thoso who have seon what I havo suffered from my eyes will learn to pity all others who are bo afflicted. Julius Hoi - fi.ackkb. As neither ball nor she t has been found, It Is inferred from tho presonce of the glass and funnel that tho deceased committed suicide by inserting close fitting corks over the powder aud filling tho barrels with water. Hofuaeker, it appears, was determined that nobody should iuterrupt him, for the door was found socurod by a strap, ono end Of which was fastened to the door knob and the other twisted around a stout walking caue, which was then firmly attached to a piece of furniture. He had also fastened down the windows, which wero open when the family retired. Mr. Gehrhold says that the deceased belonged to the Ordor of Odd Fellows, the Germaula, tho Ancient Druids and some other bonevolent societies and that about a week ago thoy had reduced his allowance of sick relief one - half and that, In his opinion, this being insufficient for his support he chafed at tho Idea of becoming a dependent on the earnings of his wife and children. He wa3 57 years old. Coroner Hesse has beon notified, but the Inquest will bo a mere formality, the case being plainly one of suicide.

The first thing to be doue Is to prove the road a perfect success for that distauco, about a mile and a half, and then iu the Spring we will comploto the five miles.

Some Facts Concerning; tho Body Found at Rockaway. There appears to be little doubt that the child found at Rockaway Beach, as reported in yos - . torday's Eaqi.e, was murdered. The skull was split through and tho breast was lacerated. It was tho wound In tho head that caused death. The child had lived at least three days. A surgeon who saw the body exprossod the opinion that It had been in professional hands, judging from tho nature of the Inclslou in tho breast It was vory plain that tho body hail not been iu tho dis - sectlug room of a medical college. How It roachod Rockaway Beach is a puzzle to Coroner Cronin. It did not come In on tho tide, because It had never boen In the water. The body was clothed and wrapped In several old newspapers, an Eagle being of tho numbor. It is believed that the corpse was takon to the beach in a basket on Monday aud deposited where tho tide would bo likely to tako It out to sea, but the body was found before the tide reached It The child's death was probably offocted Sunday night or Monday morning, as decomposition had not set in when the body was picked up. The coroner has adjournod the inquest without date. HURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE.

Mrs. Matthews Says that if Her Son in Coaricted it will Kill Her - The Prisoner Declines to Waive Examination. Thomas Foran's driver, John Matthews, who was charged with attempting to assault Mrs. Theresa Boenzel on Saturday last while he was taking her to the County Hospital, was arraigned for examination before Justice Sherlock in East New York at 10 o'clock this morning. He was represented by Counsellor Armstrong, while Assistant District Attorney Maguire appeared for the people. A telegram which had been received by Detective Kortright from - Doctor Arnold, of tho hospital. stated that Mrs. Boenzel was too weak to leave her bed. "Will your Honor fix the amount of ball ?" asked Counselor Armntroag. "Your Honor has uo power to take ball In a case of this kind," said Assistant District Attornoy Ma guire. "I thluk it had better be adjournod." "I understand from the detective that thore Is nothing lu this case," said counsel for defense. "I will be willing to go to the woman's bodside and got hor tostimony." " I am not in favor of that," said Mr. Maguire, "and I thluk that wo will prove to you that there Is something In this case. The way this man treated Mrs. Boonzel is outrageous." "Is thoro no way that 1 can have my client bailed," asked Hr. Armstrong. ' Lot him waive examination," suggested Mr. Magulto. "I don't Intend to do that," retorted counsel. Tho case was finally adjourned for a week and Matthews was taken to tho County Jail. " I can hardly boliovo that the young man is guilty,' 'said tho magistrate aftorward to an Eaole reporter. " He doesn't seem to bo a man who would do anything of that kind. Tho woman who was assaulted on November 2 - 3, 1833, by Richard Curran aud Thomas Bowler, while they were taking her to the county hospital, lived in the same neighborhood as Mrs. Boenzel, aud if I am not mistaken, in the same house. Since Matthows' arrest, a number of men who are well known in this town, have given It as their opinion that, that as Mrs. Boenzel knew of tho former occurrenco, tho subject no doubt camo to her mind and in her weak condition she imagined that she had gone throujh the same ordeal. Matthews' mothor called upeu me this morning and said that her son knew of the exploit of Curran and Bowles and that he knew what would be the result If he attempted anything of the kind. 'It will kill me, tho same as it did Mrs. Curran, who died a few weeks after her sou's conviction,' she sai'L 1 also learned from hor that Curran, who was sentenced for ton years, hat lately diod in prison." Counselor Armstrong Informod tho reporter that he would apply to tho Supreme Court for a writ of habeas corpus. He held that his client should be examined at onco. BRIGHTON BEACH RACES.

Two Ladies who Propose to Sign a Minority Report Tlier Say the Inmates ! - Not Come from the Sluni9. The trustees and a majority of the commit tee of Investigation that was asksd by the president, Dr. George F. Pentecost, to examine into the affairs of Faith Home, reported favorably on tho management of its matron. Miss Campbell. Mrs. Manning and Mrs. Moses, of the Investigating Committee, have declined, howevor, to sign tlio paper and havo prepared a short minority report which they will not allow, at prosont, to bo published, but in which thoy declare that thoy conaider Misd Campbell unduly rigid In her discipline and rceeommotid that her powers be limited by a Visiting Committee. Thoy especially object to Dr. Pentocosi's declaration at the last annual meeting, that the inmates of the Home were taken from slums and tenements and that they had abundant reason for rejoicing iu tho fact that they had a good homo over their heads; tho fact being that most of the old ladios in tho Institution were formerly well - to - do, aud aro people of refinement and education. They also cite tho case of an elderly woman who was obligod to use crutches la going about. Instead of giving her a room on one of tho lower doors that could be reached by her with comparative ease she was aasslgned by Miss Campbell to a room at the top of tho houso, with awlndow so far from the floor that she could never look out except by standing close to it and supporting herself on hor crutches. The minority report wUl probably be preseuted to Dr. Pentecost when no returns from Europe In the Fall. CHACON'S LAST DAY ON EARTH. The Preparations for bis EiecutionTo - morrow Nearly Complete.

It was actually signed by only two business people or property holders from the lower part of Fulton street, and one of those attached his own signature to my petition. I believe the meeting to - night will bo of great benellt to me, TUB SMALLPOX DISTRICT. IVo Nciv Case Reported Vaccinating by Wholesale.
