WASHINHTON CITY, Jan. li—The prospects of the riinclnient of Buy bill relative to the postal telegraph are not. very favorable. Bonator Cullom, who is the author of one of the mcwt practical-hills upon tho subject,says that he does not now expect that any legislation which will be satisfactory will be had In tbia congress. Thu most ardent frionda of tbe postal telegraph measure favored the appointment of a special committee In the senate. That movement was defeated, and the whole subject was referred to the poatoflBce committee, of which Sawyer, of Wisconsin, I* chairman. The latter eommittee,has just reported adversely upon the resolution to create a special committee, and Is now said to be about to undertake an investigation of its own. But from all that can be ascertained It ia not the Intention of the committee; to mii'ko any very searching or thorough Investigation. Sawyer is understood to favor a definite scheme which has boon discussed in former congresses, which may be called the contract system. He "proposes that the telegraph business shall be done for the government and the people upon the same plan, so for as it is practicable, as that on which mails on Htar routes are now carried. He would invite proposals for the transaction of the telegraph business by the government, and although no information has yet been obtained as to the details of this scheme, It Is to be assumed that the contract would be lot to the lowest bidder. As to the general literature on tha subject of postal telegraphs, it is the opinion of some mombers of this committee that congress has already collected practically all. the arguments available, and this Information has been printed in different reports at various times. The probability Is that these reports will be collected and permission asked to have them reprinted. One of the documents upon which the opponents of the postal telegraph much rely is the latest report of the British postofflce department, one or two copies only of which have reached Washington. The figures show that the telegraph service of that country bos been a constant expense to the gover n ment from the outset. There is no one In congress thot seems to he so earnest a friend of the postal telegraph system as to bo ready to advocate any measure which would be an additional burden to the government NO bill would be likely to receive serious consideration which would propose to materially add to the national expenditure. It seems probable that no postal telegraph bill is likely to become a law in the Fiftieth congress. One of the most earnest friends of tho postal telegraph said Wednesday: "I don't think that public opinion Is yet ready for a postal telegraph system in this country. Possibly the only practicable way would be to take existing lines, and practical .telegraphers say that these line* could be duplicated at very much leas than the present holders of the watered stork consider them worth." PREPARING TO CRUSH THOEBE. ' Hurl-din i>P Volunteer Testimony Thnt His Charges Are Fake. WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 13. —The Btar says of the Thoebe-Cerllsle contest: "There is room for iiut little doubt that the Thoebe- Carllsle contest will bo settled on Saturday, as far as the elections committee In concerned. Affidavits will be Bled on that day by Mr. Carlisle to show that the charges mode by Mr. Bypher and supported by affidavits were false. Hundreds of telegrams have been received, called forth by tho newspaper publications, volunteering testimony as to the falsity of the charges made. Affidavits from all parts of the district, sworn to by Republicans as well as Democrats, will be produced to disprove the charges. Ills understood that the array of testimony will be over- whelmlng.and will furnisha complete answer to all the charges. It is believed that tbe answer will be satisfactory to. every member of tbe committee. The charges that the names in the poll-books of seven preclncta were all written in one handwriting, set forth In an affidavit by a Mr. Pierce, will be met by numerous affidavits by reputable'Repub- licans' and Democrats, who will declare the statement to-be untrue." On the Bother band a telegram from Covington, Ky., says that Thoebo Is there and Is more sanguine than, ever that he will win tbe fight. Tbe various labor assemblies are rain- Ing the sinews of war for the purpose of making a vigorous fight, and petitions to congress, signed by numerous citizens aud electors of tbe district, are being circulated for signatures reiterating all the charges made at the meeting of the elections committee last week by Bypher and Thoeba. committee, at hla ra*tl«nco on Rhode Island aveuue.

PHILADELPHIA, Jaa 12.—A committee of merchants of towns In the strike region called upon President Corbln Wednesday to confer with him iu regard to a settlement of the difficulty. They were closeted about an hour and when the committee left none of them would say what was done, except that Mr. Corbinhad treated them with courtesy and seemed willing to meet thn men half way. It was learned later from a delegate that the proposition of Mr. Corbin, whatever It Is, will be presented to a meeting ot the business men of Fottavllle to be called at once. It was gleaned that the merchants are to undertake to treat In some manner with the strike leaders with a view to coming to an understanding. ; LATER.—The following is what Mr. Corbin said to the committee, after hearing what they bad to say: He heartily sympathized with the object ot the committee, which was to end the strike which be deplored as much as any one, but the position and duty of tbe company was perfectly clear. There was nothing that the company could submit to arbitration. The subject of the railroad strike was closed; that strike was over; tho men who left tho service of the company were discharged, and would nnder no clrcumstancoa be taken back. Tbe leaders of tbe striking miners, he understood, would not be satisfied If even in the question of wages the company should concede all that they should ask, 'but they would ' demand that all .new men on the railroad should undischarged i and all discharged men taken back. This alone would make arbitration impossible.. But beyond this the position of tbe company regarding the miners' wages was just and fair and honest, and Its maintenance was demanded by every principle of sound business policy. If all coal companies .could be brought together to agree to an advance of wages the Reading would pay as high rates as anybody, but to talk of submitting to arbitration a matter which might make it impossible for the Reading company to compete with the other coal producing and carrying concerns was useless. These . were questions the company could never lubnijt to arbitration. The company bad taken ra position with great care and deliberation. It was right and would never recede. The miners bad violated their contract wjth, the,,company. The proper thing for them was to return to work, and then If they had any grievances tbe company would patiently hear anything they had to say, wou)d dp thflm full justice, and would In the future,,•* it the past, pay the best wage* that any company would for the same Clara of work. Mr. Corbln said be felt very sorry lor the great body of the miners, whom he felt sure had been misled by their leaders. He was sorry to see them suffer, hoped that they would return to work at once, and suggested to the committee that they might do excellent service to themselves, to the miners, to the company, and to tha public by trying to enlighten the miners, who had been misled into a strike which was utterly wrong and without cause. They should try, be said, to induce the miners to return to their allegiance to the company. This was the way, and the only way, to end tha strike. The committee were much impressed with Mr. Corbln's candid statement of tbe position of the company, which many of them admitted was impregnable. The committee would not say what they proposed to do, but It in .likely that it will result in an address by tbe committee to the miners. Muter Workman Lewi* said Wednesday night that the miners were very anxious to have a conference with President Corbin at the earliest possible moment, and that he had expressed his willingness to meet them again as won as he could arrange certain matters connected with the question. Throe members of the K. of L. general executive board—Hayes, Barry, and Ayleeworth —met hero Wednesday and listened informally to tbe statesman!* of representative* of tbe strikers. They could take no official aotion, as there was noc a quorum, but they approved of the strike as Individual members ot the board, and made a public statement to thai effect. .

"INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 14— Tho conference of the state Democracy assembled at Masonic ball at II o'clock Wednesday morning, evory county represented, and the attendance, according to the secretary's roll, aggregating J,040—the largest gathering of the kind ever witnessed in the state to perfect preliminary organization. Prior to the assembling of th» conference the several delegates from each congressional district held meetings and selected members of the various committees for the day's work. In each of the dlutrict meetings contiderable Interest was manifest In the selection of a member of the committee on resolutions, the question at Usue being the indorsement of Governor Gray as the vice presidential candidate of his party, and his friends being very aggressive and earnest The opposition was based solely upon expediency, the argument be Ins used that the majority of Indiana Democr'ati were for him, and that it was useless to provoke any antagonism by direct aud personal indorse- ment. The governor's friends took a different view ot the matter and made It the Issue, giving np all tha other positions for It. When the committee was announced it was apparent that the efforts of the governor's managers were crowned with success, as eleven of the thirteen members wera bis warmest friends. The full committee is u follows, the names being given in the order of the congressional districts which they represent: G. W. Shanklin, Vanderburgh county; ex- Congressman Cobb, Knox; F. B. Burk, Clark; Frank Gavin, Decatur; J. R, Gordon, Putnam; C. W. Kilgore, Delaware; W. B. Ray, Shelby; J. B. Brigge, Sullivan; Senator Johnson, Tlppecanoe; M, D. Fransler, Cass; M. H. Kldd, Wabash; R a Bell, Allen; E. B. Bingbam, 8t Joseph, The conference was soon permanently organized, Governor Gray being selected for chairman. He made a brief speech of thanks, and an adjournment was taken to the afternoon. .. , Upon reassembling a plan for state organi- cation was presented and adopted. The formation of clubs In every county under the name of the Hondricks league was recommended, and each county was requested to report a committee of five for that purpose. Congressman Cobb, chairman of the committee on resolutions, then submitted the committee's report, saying that the committee was a unit in its action. The resolutions concern- Ing the administration and Indorsement ot Gray for the vice presidency are as follows: We ball with enthusiasm the brave and able leadership of Grover Cleveland, president of the United States, and heartily Indorse his administration of national affairs. We welcome the message of the president ot the United States as a courageous step toward the administration of the government In harmony with tho requirements of the masses ot the people, and we urge upon congress to carry out Its recommendations. We declare that the so-called doctrine of "protection to American labor," as Illustrated In our present tariff, is a fraud upon the mechanics of the country eflpeclally, placing them largely Iu the power of their employi-rs, and making them the victims ot the oppressive power of colossal aggregations of capital eiertcd In tho Interests of monopoly and against the Interests of labor.

Other resolutions Indorsing the election of Senator Turple, and denouncing the revolutionary measures of the Republicans of the last legislature, were unanimously adopted. Governor Gray was called on (or another speech, but declined except to again think the conference for Its confidence In him, and after the adoption of a resolution recommending that the state central committee call the state nominating convention to meet on the first Wednesday in June the conference adjourned. A meeting iras held at night at Tomlinson hall, which was appropriately decorated, tha affair being under the charge of the Uen- dricksclub. Ex-Senator McDonald was the first speaker. He reviewed the president's message, and spoke ot it as one of the most remarkable documents that was- ever submitted to congress. He took strong ground In favor of the people, as distinguished from the monopolists. He said that Sherman was both a politician sod a statesman, but In his late speech in the senate ha bad spoken only as a politician. Governor Gray was next introduced. He laid that the meeting was the most remarkable ever held in the state, and that tha enthusiasm of tha meeting had dispelled all doubt, if any existed, about the result in this state in November. He then reviewed the record of the Republican, party, and referred with confidence to the coming campaign. He said that he was glad that the Republicans had determined to make state politics prominent in the coming campaign, and declared that the Republican* htti placed a debt, of |4,00o,000 upon the people with nothing to show for It, while the Democrats bad made $l'J200,000 of debt, and could point to the new state house and to the threa new insane hospitals as the result ot the expenditure.
