' IDVERTISERS ^z ::::r:.. WASHINGTON CITI, Jan. 21.—Tbe two most inttrrotlng features of the sewlbn of tbe house Friday were a personal explanation l>y Binlnger, and Ihe failure ot the house to'inke final action^ on the Tnobe^Car- llsle contest. . , . Ai to tbe first, shortly after the bou*e assembled Springer rose in bis seat,and bad read from fie clerk's desk an extract'of a speech mailo Thursday by Kelly of Pennsylvania, to the effect that a member of tbe congress which made an appropriation for tbe Philadelphia centennial (and who was a member of the present congress) had claimed a fee of 110,000 tor having;' inserted a clause in the bill making the loan, upon which be could go Into court and enforce ita payment. Springer said he had no doubt that he wa* the member referred to. He bad moved an amendment to the centennial bill changing the appropriation from a donation to a loan. A t the close of the exposition the board ot finance held that the money belonged to the stockholders and not U the government. Suit was entered by the United Stales and It was decided in favor ot the board. He then wont to Attorney General Taf t and askod him to appeal the case to the supreme court ThU waa done, and the attorney general requested him to appoar on behalf of the government. H» did >o, and the d'dsion of the court below won reversed and tbe money ordered paid into the treasury. ,Ho had never asked one cent for bis professional services. Hu did fllo a petition asking that hi* cade be referred to the court ot claims as to the value of his servicea. The committee bad reported a bill based upon his petition, but which had never been acted upon. Ha hoped tbe gentleman would retract the statement he had mala. Kelly said he bad not meant to do an injustice. The thing had an ugly odor when it occurred; it was not savory now. What be meunt to say was that, knowing the purport of lid own clause, tbs pontlnraan was the one man nmoiii? tho M),0<X>,000 American oitlisns who felt that the fubscnbera to tbe exposition stock ounlit to be mnde to pay, and buntod them till he stripped them of their Investment, patriotic as it waa.' Bprlngvr replied that If- the gentleman stated that he demanded a fee for inserting the clause he stated what waa not true. If the gentlein:m meant to say tbat he pursued the CTM with all the skill and ability of which he was possessed, he admitted it. It was the proudest record bo bad made since mombur of congress, and that was the opinion of lii« constituents, who had returned him six times since be made that record. The Thobw-Ciirllnle election case wee then taken up. Several members spoka pro and con, tbe Democrats Juatifylhe the elections ccmmittce>-nnd tbe Republicans holding that enough had been shown by Thobe to make a reopening of the case both just and expedient. Attar tbe members had said all they wanted to for tbe time Thobe was given an which to present his claims to the houso. Re read from a communication which be bad sent to tho chairman of the committee on elections protesting against an unfavorable report upon his request until he had an opportunity to examine the aflldavitta pro aented by the contestoe. In this communl cation ho reitpratuR lit part the statement* contained in his affidavit filed with the com mlttee, denies the truth of some of. tbe afil- davita died by the speaker, and declares his ability to disprove the accuracy of other* II be is granted an opportunity. He. was sorry, he continued, that tbe working classes wera beginning to lose confilence in the security of the ballot If the- ballot was nol secure what did they have left! [Applause on the Republican tide:]; He waa a workingman; he did not consider it a great honor, exactly, to be a member of this houae. [General laughter and applause.] What he meant was that a mechanic was just ai honorable and noble a* any other citlEOB. If every gentluman here would rather be' right than be president, these seau would be filled by tbe right men. [Laughter.] He did not propose to make any capital out of the fact tbat he was a worklngmon. Ha was not here for •favor, but for simple justice. Tbe previous question was then ordered upon the resolution'of the majority of tbe committee—which confirm* the title of Car lisle to his seat—*nd upon a resolution in th< nature of a substitute offered by Lyman o: Iowa, deploring that the contest is of such importance to the sitting member and to tbe people of the country that it I* entitled to full, thorough, and impartial Investigation, and, providing that the. paper* in the be printed and i referred to a select committee or sub-oommlttee of tbe elections committee which shall be authorised to in jrwtigate th* matter. -Tbe substitute was defeated—yeas, 12S; nays, ISi Seven Demo- crat*—Brnum, Tillman, Foran, Hare, Mc- Klnn*y,"8bively and Wearer—voted in th affirmative. , The question then recurred on tba majority resolution, ou the adoption ot which th* yeas and nays were ordered. Upon the announcement of the vote it found tbat no quorum hod voted, the Republicans generally refraining, and the case wa* thus left to come up again. _________ POSTAL TELEGRAPH DISCUSSED. Marvin Green and Q«rdnor Bnbbard Enlighten a Senate Committee. WASHINGTON Crrr, Jan.-81.—The senate postofflct) committee on Friday began to bear arguments on the question ot a government telegraph, but nt the close of the session tha committee adjourned indefinitely,, and no could mnta it pay. Tbe governments bad n»vcr been held liable for errors; tha West [ eru Union paid from IIOO.OOJ to «200,OQO per year on this item of expensa. At the cams time the history of government telegraphy showed that more errors were made than when the business was conducted by private parties. As to tbe value of lha plant, the amount stated by the press as a fair valuation of the Western Union would not buy tba wires at tbe factory. A good deal wo.i »nlJ about a few men owning the Wwt«rn Union. Th* fact was that the directorate of thirty men owned but three-eighths ot tho stock, 3,000 people were stockholders, and 20,UuO were ntereeted In the property. Dr. Qroen then referred to tbe Knight* of jibor petition of half a million Homes la fa- or of postal telegraph, and said it was a ilece of spite work, because Powderly bad oarrelled with Jay Gould on another snb- pcU Ho added that not one in 100 of the ignera ever sent a message by telegraph. Gardner O. Hubbard followed Dr. Ureen on tbe opposite side. He said it was trns a* )r. Green had slated that the Western Union'* IH30,(XO mile* ot wire could not be uplicated for 100,000,000, and that tbe company possessed other properties, such as right f way. The directors, possessed of three- Ightsof Its capital stock, however, virtually leld a monopoly, as It would be Impossible t any stockholders' meeting to obtain a con- rolllntf vote over the director*. Dr. Green stated at this point that three- ourths of the capital was frequently represented at Rtockholders' meetings. Continuing, Hubbard said that in all other countries the tel<grapb was controlled by the lovernment. In this country it was In the control of a single corporation. The quo* Ion wa* whether the government could not manage it much cheaper than the Western Jnion. In Switzerland and Belgium tbe cost of sending message* was 14 cents; In England, 19 cants; In this country, lift cent*, ld not this sum bo reduced! If it could be done slowly by the Western Union, It could be don* rapidly by the government. There were two ways proposed. One In tbe bills of Senators Cullom and Edmunds, which 'as that the government should operate the Ines; tbe other by the plan advocated by lini for many years, the substance of which was embraced In tbe bill reported by tbe committee four years ago and Introduced by Mr. Dawes. It waa in the line of the system now adopted by the poatoCSce for the trans- mlralon ot letters. Tbe chairman said that the Dawes bill pro- xised the buying out of tbe._telei;raph.llnes. The committee was against this, but had agreed to let Dawes report it, Hubbard said that wasn't hi* suggestion. His proposition was that tbe poetofflce deportment should receive telegrams as it did etters; that it should make a contract with competent parties to transmit the telegrams, and tbat tho government should deliver tbe telegrams. In th* . country town* the post- office will undoubtedly be the telegraph office. In reply to a question, Hnbbard snld he supponed tbat about hnlf of tbe 55,000 post- offices would be accommodated, as tbe telegraph lines stood to-day. All telegrams were to be prepaid by stamps furnished by tbe government Here 5 per cent, of the bualnea* won social, while abroad It was 80 par cent If the rate* were made cheap everybody In this country wonld use the telegraph. Tbe reduction of the price of messages In England from a shilling to sixpence resulted In a 80 per cent Increase of business In two years. OUT OF THE COUNTY JilL National Board of Trade Resolatlon*. WxsniHQTOH Crnr, Jan. 21.— The National Board of Trade convention Friday passed resolutions urging congress to revise the n*» tlonal banking laws In consonance with tbe recommendation* of Comptroller Trenholm; advocating the refunding of 4 per cent government bonds at a low rate ot interest, redeemable in annual installments from 1W1 to W~l, with a view to tbe nse ot the new loan a* security for national bank circulation; also urging the repeal of the law pro- riding for tbe compulsory purchase of silver bullion. The resolutions ' proposed by the New York, Philadelphia, 'Boston anil New Haven boards favoring bountie* and subsidies to American' ahtppinz, were adopted, but a "free chip" amend meut was defeated by a vote of SB to 10. Resolutions were »lto adopted favoring extradition treatieo covering ambezzlement, and, recommending an amendment to tbe constitution 10 a* to allow tbe president to veto separata items la appropriation bills. The convention, after several • day* of Interesting and very industrious work adjourned sine die la Ui», evening. ' Ihe next convention will open in Chicago on the second Wednesday of next November. EDITOR O'BRIEN TREAD3 THE F.ARTH A FREE MAN AGAIN. \ An 'Enthnilutle Throne B«o«tT*i* Him with Open Arms—'A 8p««ch at Tnllikmor* In Which Be Talks of Blunt andi Befoul—Other Irish News—Christina and I«ab«ll»— Frimoe and Italy. <s LONDOS, Jan. 21.—Editor O'Brien'* torm of imprisonment came to an end Friday and hews* released. The people gave him an enthusiastic but orderly revaptloo. -His appearance Indicates that bis health is much impaired. His physicians insist that he shall spend a season of recuperation in the sooth of France, but he ha* not yet decided to heed their advice. The people ot Tullamorfl presented him with an address, which embodies the declaration that they cared nothing for the coercion law, but regarded BalfourVi execution ot it as extremely brutal and In all respect* a disgrace to the government O'Brien addressed the throng and said It wo* with the greatest difficulty that he could find word* to express adequately hi* gratitude for the kindness of his countrymen, especially Moorehead and E<an, without whose assistance In his lonely duffwtth his jailers there might have been a' different event to celebrate from the one his hearers rejoiced over. Referring to Blunt'* charge* against Balfour O'Btien said he had beard them from Blunt blmsolf long before there was any likelihood that Blunt would be one of Balfour'4 victims. It was owing to Blunt'* statement, in fact, that he had told Moorbead and Egan that he believed that he bad boou brought to Tullamore prison to bs murdered, for be knew that Blunt would allow bis right hand to wither in firs before be would toll a lie. Apart from 'Blnnt's revelations, O'Brien and his fellow prisoners had • right to Infer the worst from Balfour 1 * secrecy in immuring tbem In what they supposed would turn out to be Tullamore catacombs. It was fair, however, to say that the prison pfftclal* performed their odious duties with tbe least possible harshness. O'Brien arrived in Dublin Friday evening. Immense crowds of people, Including many priests and members of parliament, met him at tbe railway station, where they bad waited some time for his arrival • He was greeted with deafening cheers as he alighted fronrthe traln/and-appeared in Bight of the multitude, and when he entered the lord mayor's carriage the enthusiasm of the people was at white heat He was driven to the Imperial hotel, escorted by an Immense procession with band* of muilo and torches, while the house* along the line of march, a* well as in other parts ot the city, were Illuminated, and bonfires burned everywhere. Arriving at the hotel O'Brien appeared on the balcony and addressed the people. He rejoiced, he said, that In spite of Balfour thn Irish people were stronger than ever, and though tbe English were slow in joining them they would be slow in deserting them after they had joined. Tbe Irish would not resort to outrage, but would follow Par- noil and Gladstone, trusting In the Democracy of Great Britain to make Inland a nation. Desperate Blot »t Londonderry* Dr/BLiw, Jan, 21 —The arrival of Father McFodden, of Qwoedore, at Londonderry Friday afternoon in charge ot tbe police was tbe occasion of a serious riot Immediately upon the appearance of the priest at the rail- ay station the crowd awaiting his arrival became violently excited and attacked the constables having him in custody with stones. Tbe police were reinforced and charged upon the crowd, but were desperately resisted. Several person*, among them a number of policemen, were Injured, and it 1* reported that a detective wa* taken, to tbe hospital suffering concussion of .the brain. Manning Warns the Pope.
