WASHINGTON Crrr,- Jan. 18.—A special message from the president was sent to con- gress'I u "lay, In which the executive con- niwoclation opened here Tuesday. H. S. Knowlea, of East Liverpool, O., president, CfliUd the convention ta order and in his address, reviewing the potters' trade of the country, said that until It was Brmly established the industry would need the protection afforded by the present tariff to enable it to compete with the old established pottery industry of England. A QUESTION OF CITIZENSHIP. j The Contested Election Case of Lowry vs. Whit* from Indiana. WABHINOTOJI Crrr, Jaa Id.— Th« house commluos on elections began consideration .

Calkins, of Indiana, and Van Jority and minority thereof, both of Manning, of this city, for White. The principal grounds of this contest rest upon the allegation that although White made application for naturalization papers In lHte> he never completed the application, never received the papers, and is therefore not a ckinn of the United State*. It is held by the contestant that there is no record of his being a citizen of this . country. By' birth White Is a Scotchman. White proves by witnesses that he was naturalized; that when the war began in 1801 he placed the naturalization papers in the hand* of his wife, who lent thorn; that when ho returned home from the war in 1S05 he went Into the court and again completed his proof of citiftlshlp, but that, owing to the loo e manner in which the records ot the court were kept, he is unable to show record TEN,DEAD IN ONE SPOT.

ADVERTISES r K '.J»i-J. ^(U iiiic It C Btruutcd, and waited until such time na they could do»i-lo'> mfilclent business on the road built to Induce public to buy the bonds or the stock. If the country through which the road ran developed sufficient huslnera, then the project wns a success; If It di j not, tlion the operation was a loan. Thene gentlemen took all the responsibility; any loss occurring was necessarily theirs, and of right tho profit belonged to them. But it is Bold that they ylolnted a well-known ru'e of equity In dealing with themselves, that they were trustees, and that they wore representing both sides of the contract. The. amwer Is that they did not find anybody else to deal with. They could not find any one wbo woidd take the chance .of building a road through what wax then an almost uninhabited country, and accept the bonds and stocks of tlfa road In payment. And when It Is said that they were trustees, if they did occupy such relation It was merely technical; for they presented only their own Interests on both sides, there being no ore else concerned In the transaction. They' became tha incorporatorsof the company . that"was. to build the roads, ~ subscribed for its stock and were tho only subscribers. Therefore, It U difficult to see hovr any one was wronged by their ai'tlfn. Tho rule of equity invoked, which has Ita origin In the Injunction, "No man can serve two masters," e«rtalnly did not apply to them, because they wore In their own Interests, and were not charged with tho duty ot caring for other's rights, there being no other persons Intartwted In the subject matter. The president, in view oC this statement, calls attention to the grants and benefits received from the government by the companies, among which were an advance o( government bonds to tbe amount of tit),000 per mile of constructed-railway, to be paid at the completion of each fort^ miles bulll (which wns afterward changed to every twenty milch); tbe grant of five sections of public land for each mile until (afterward changed to ten sections); Che application of all charges against tbe government for transportation to the payment of the debl (changed later to half tbe charges), thus re- qu'rlng the government to pay to the railway the other hall); and the making of the government lien a second mortgage Instead of a first mortgage, and various other fnvorable concessions by tha government, which the president says now appear to have been more reckless than prudent. All these concessions the companies availed themselves ot to the fullest extent In view .of these debts, created under the law, to tba government and others, and the relations resulting therefrom, the president sayi "it is astonishing that the claim -should be made that the, directors of these roods owed no duty except to themselves la their construction; that they regarded no Interest but their own, and that they were justified iu contracting with themselves and making such bargains as resulted In conveying to their pocket* all the assets of tb* company-" . The government alone, the president says, had a right to insist that none of the boada secured by the prior mortgage should be issued fraudulently or for tbe purpose of division among these stockholder^ without consideration. The result of this doctrine of complete independence of tbe directors Is that the government flutla Itself without adequate security for the repayment of ita loans. The great liberality of tha government to tbe roads was conceded In the expectation that the business would be conducted In fairness and honesty, with a proper care for tbe Interest of the government, something that can not be said of tbe operation* of tbe • companies, and "for the purpose of saving or improving the uecurlty afforded by ita junior lien, the government should have the right now to purge this paramount Hen ot all that is fraudulent, fictitious or unconscionable, If the transfer to innocent hands of bonds of this character secured by such first mortgage prevents their cancellation. It might be well to seek a remedy against those who Issued and transferred them. It legislation ia needed to Eoouro such a remedy congress can readily supply It" Tbe president then recommends that U the vlolatlenaot tbe contract' are suoa as to forfeit the right of any ot the companies to any of the granted lands, tbe lands should be forfeited by congressional action, as executive power it probably uot broad enough to reach Che case. In this connection the president sayi ha has in Is hands the report of the conunls- tioneru appointed to examine the completed sections ot the California & Oregon railway, part of the Central Pacific, aud if the reports are approved tbe company will be entitled U a large quantity of public land. The road, according-to the investigation wbloh is th.4 subject of this message, has been built in the same questionable manner as the other portions of the system, and tha president asks congress to say whether the company shall have the laud. The president closes by earnestly urging that action be taken upon this subject, at the same time opposing any arrangement by which the government shall take possession ot the roadt lie eays irritation aud indignation against the companies' methods does not justify action that will make the governments advances less liable of repayment, but while not condoning the wrong-doing involved iu the easy, the action taken should bo practical and effective, always remembering that Ita success depends upon it* acceptance by tba companies. H4 suggeta that the majority report coutains a remedy that might be applied to a part of the roods, and emphasise* the fact that congress only can decide the best coruse of actiou, which public Interest urge* should bo efficient and prompt.

The arguments have not yet been completed. RELIEF FOR THE- BUSINESS MEN. The Hall Wrapper BUI Goes to the President— Wllklnt' Bank Bill. WAsnmoTOK Crrr, Jan. 18.—A brief debate took place in the senate Tuesday over a resolution by Flatt inquiring as to alleged holding of senators' mail matter because ot unlawful printing on the wrappers. Flatt said tbe department bad gone beyond its authority In tbe matter. The resolution wai _adopted- The house bill prescribing what inscriptions may be put on mail wrappers, etc., was passed as It came from the house. The president's message on tho Pacific railways was road and referred to a special' committee of five senators. Bo won and Blair spoko In advocacy of tho educational bill, after which the senate adjournsd. By resolution In the house Cox of New York was elected speaker pro torn, during Carlisle's illness, and the chaplain prayed for Carlisle's speedy recovery. A number of bills were Introduced, tbe president'^ message on the Pacific railways ordered printed, and Wilkins' bank bill ordered taken up by a vote ot 145 to 100. Wllklns said he was willing to give ample time to discuss and amend the measure, but Weaver declared it pernicious and said he would resort to any parliamentary means to defeat it. After some filibustering the bouse adjourned. D. T.j Jan, 18.— The list of the dead who perished in the storm continues, to increase In numbers. ' Your correspondent has confinod his own work to Dakota counties lying within twenty-five miles of Yankton. Mrs. Wilson, of Running Water, teacher in a school twelve miles from Fyn- dall, has been found in the pralrla eight miles from Prnds.ll, with nine of her school children, all dead.

The Evening Journal's list numbers 153, and that of Tbe Evening Dispatch 169. It would seem probable that the final summary, if such can ever be made, will show quite 200 names. Pioneer-Press specials say that Sarah Do- Ian, a school teacher ot Goodwin, near Cold Like, D. T., and Hego Bchaft, farmer, of Altamont, D. T., have been found frozen to death.

BIQ STEAL CHARGED AGAIN3T MUCH-TRUSTED CASHIER. NO HOAX ABOUT THE BOX. The Infernal Machine Sent Judge Wood» Genuine and Deadly. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Jan. 18.—The mysterious box not to JndRo Woods, of tha federal court, before nbctn the second trial of the tolly-sheet . forgers began Monday, proves to have been a veritable infernal machine In construction. It was enclosed in an ordinary slate pencil box with a illtling lid. In It were placed two cartridges. These were covered with powder, On the top friction matches and sandpaper were arranged so as to ignite on the wlthdrawal-of the.Jid—and_ explodfl _the powder, and presumably the cartridges. An Investigation will be made to discover the sender if possible, and (IUU reward bus been offered for his discovery. The explosion of the machine might have resulted fatally, and certainly would have seriously injured the one opening It without great care. The trial of the ballot cases was begun Tuesday and the attorneys made their opening statements. A BIQ GROCERY BURNED OUT. Fatten W»ot Cmr.

A Flacky Nebraska Teaoher Who Was Equal to the Emergency. OMAHA, Nub,, Jan. '18.—Mr. J. H. Ayer, of Ord, Neb., one of the secretaries of the state board of transportation, told a reporter an Interesting Story of tba pluck and good judgment exhibited by a young lady school teacher of Valley county during the recent storm. When last Thursday's blii- tard came up the teacher, Mlsa Minnie Freeman, who is still in her teens, was at the little school house of Myra Valley district with thirteen pupils, ranging In age from 6 to 15 years. About an hour before the time for dismissal the blizzard struck the school house with sucb force as to tear the door from ita hinges. Another torr I Qc gust struck the build* Ing, and In the twinkling of an eye carried away the roof, leaving the frightened little one* exposed to the elements. The time for prompt action bad arrived, but the plucky teacher was equal to. the emergency. She gathered her pupils together, and, securing a coil of strong heavy twine, began with the largest one and tied them all together by the arms, throe abreast Taking the youngest in ''her arms she tied the end of the twine around her own body and, with all the words of encouragement she could muster, started out In the furious storm. Selecting her way carefully the brave girl led her little charges through snowdrifts and the blizzard, and after a wearisome journey of three- quarters of a mile the little band reached the threshold of a farmhouse and were taken in.

DETROIT, Mich., Jan. 18.—When Charles EX Young, the confidential bookkeeper of the Michigan Carbon works, began going to and from his office some months ago with a colored coachman, a nobby turnout end a blooded horse. President Jarves, of the company, was somewhat surprised. He thought It hardly the correct thing for a man of to moderate salary, and so expritsed himself several times to his brother directors. Nevertheless, when J. B. Mtxjre resigned the secretary and treasurystaip of the company, Mr. Young was elected his successor. Later a decrease in the dividends to the stockholders caused complaint*, The dissatisfaction led to Investigation. It was ascertained then that somebody in tba office had been steadily pocketing money belonging to the company, and Tuesday Mr. Young was arrested. It Is alleged that his stealing has covered several years, and that he has embezzled 175,000. Bomo of those bco» acquainted with Mr. Young take the position that either the company bas not boon the loser to the extent reported, or that Young Is the scapegoat for some person or persons more directly implicated. Their opinion ii based on the esteem In which theyjiave held Young, but there remains the fact that tfa»- other responsible members of the company are equally above suspicion. Mr. Young lives at 231 Cam pau avenue, and It Is a coincidence that the house be occupies was purchased by him from Frank Bradley, formerly manager of the Pullman Car works,«nd now doing Hve years at Jollet for having helped himself from the coffen of that corporation. Mr. Young Is a man whose outward life tends to create confidence In his probity and tntezrity. He has a somewhat stolid cart of features, but there is nothing In them sngijestive of cunning or criminal Instinct*. He Is a lover of good horses, but does not gamble, and was not, so far as known, addicted to any vice.

OKAHA, Neb., Jan. 1M.—Miss Louie Eoyce, a school teacher eight miles from Flatnview, had but three pupils on the day of tha storm. She started at 2 o'clock with the children for a house about twenty rods distant, but lost her way. .All laid down in the snow and Miss Eoyce wrapped up the little Ones as best she could. Early In the night one child died, later a second one, and just as morning broke the third child succumbed to the cold. Miss Boyce then managed to reach the house, less than twenty rods away. Both her feet are badly frozen, and they will probably have to be amputated. A school teacher and eight children, names ufiknown. are reported from Neligb to have perished.
