Ing tbe Inquiry so as to include the Standard Oil company, perhaps, and the whisky trust, perhnpH, and every trust of any kind in the United Slates. If congress had a fedoral way of interfering with those organizations it might be useful to exercise It. Scott inquired what power congress would have to .redress evils which the committee might find toexlst in combinations between a stale corporation and cltlions of another state —what had congress to do with this'question at nil! Were not the states anplyable to protect themselves and their citizens sgalnst all combinations and conspiracies? There ,was no authority delegated to congress to Interfere. Mnson of Illinois, tbe author of the resolution, stated tbat it was not his object to authorize a smelling committee to Invade states and Investigate the business of persons doing business under state law. The object of bis resolution. - was tha ascertainment of the effect which combinations bad on the price of necessaries, and further to ascertain whether or not, by reason of tbe tariff, those combinations were able to raise the price of necessaries. \ NeHon of Minnesota inquired whether the gentleman bad any doubt that tbe tariff law -indirectly co-operated to aid the trusts.

MACBETH & CO Pittsburgh, Pa. ttiose who believed In a high protective tariff thought that there ought to be some way to prevent tbete laws being perverted. If there was no way to protect the people against these trusts except by a reviilon of tbe tariff be.was ready to vote on that question now. Brumm of Pennsylvania suggested that tbe greatest monopolies of the country were those which were not affected by tbe,tariff. They were the Standard Oil company, the Western Union Telegraph, and the Anthracite coal combination. Rayner of Maryland criticised the resolution as not being broad enough. It would not Include the Western Union Telegraph company, which had swallowed up every other telegraph company for the purpose of controlling the bualueca. It would not affect the Standard Oil company. That was not a combination of Individuals. It was a combination of different corporations, each one of which was created by the sovereignty of a particular state. The resolution would not apply to that, The Heading coal strike was a great quentlon whlcb was 'agitating the public mind. The Reading company was incorporated by Pennsylvania, but it shipped ita commerce all over the country. That company, which had entered Into a conspiracy to str ke down labor in tbe Lebigh and Schuylklll regions, in order to 'Increase the price of coal, would not be affected by tbe investigation.. In order to extend the scope of the Inquiry he moved to strike out the clause which confines the Inquiry to trust* not incorporated, under tha lawn of any state. The motion wa* agreed to. . : Grosvenor of Ohio moved to recommit the resolution with instructions to.the qommlttea; to report it back with a provision that If tb* investigating •oommltte* report:! legislation looking to the regulation of the business pf corporations controlled by stats laws, it also shall .report a proper eulogy and epitaph commemorative ot the life, public service* and death of 1 the ancient doctrlna of states righto, with the time and ciruuuuioaoe* • ol the abandonment ot said doctrine by the Democratic party;' Ruled out as'u'otger- mane. • . . On motion of Ran dall several amendments tending to. broaden tha scope ot .th* inquiry were agreed to.. The resolution, with accompanying preamble, -was then adopted a* follows: .'..". • . . , ,.•:.' •Whereas, It !» alleged tbat certain Individuals and corporations in tbe United State*'engaged in manufacturing, producing, raining, or dealing in some of the neceasori**' of life* and other productions, have combined for the purpose of controlling or curtailing .the production or supply of the same, and thereby Increasing their • price to tha people of tha country, which combinations are known as associations, trusts, pools, and like names; and, ': • Whereas, Such combination* not only Injuriously affect commerce between the states, but impair the revenuos of the TJnltod 8tat«* as derived from tbe duties on Import*; thorofore, , . • -Jtosolved, That tbe committee ou manufacture* be, and the same bi hereby, directed to Inquire Into the .names and number and extent of such alleged combinations, under whatever name known, their, methods of combination or doing; business, thoiv effect upon the prices of any neo- egsarles of llf e and of all productions to the people ot tha country, upon It* Internal or foreign comxneroe, and ita revenues from Import duties, together with any and all other matters relating to the same which may call for or suggest legislation by congress, and report tuo same to tbe house with such recommendation** &a the said committee muy agree upon.

Mr. W*bster,~of - Armrjur ft Co.; and a represent* - ative of Falrt«nka & Co., of Chicago, ap- p«ared and made statement* with reference to th*lr manufactured lard. They admitted tpat the bulk of the lard which they put upon tbe market contained but 00 to 75 per cent ot lard, . and that the remainder is composed of tallow, s tearlne, cotton- SMd ...oil, - etc., but claimed that it 1* equally pure and healthful and in no way deleterious The consumers, they argued, Were not making any complaint. This measure was prepared by business rivals, who were unable to compete successfully. The supporters of tbe bill said they were not 'opposing healthful compounds, and W. W. Klmball,of Boston.added there were many manufacturers who were making deleterious substances and selling them as pure lard. Ho was questioned closely on this subject, and said he could not name anybody at this time, but would promise to send the committee the name* of lib such firms. The committee told blm twenty would do, and be said If he did not send them he would acknowledge that he wa* all wrong.

S6.—The tally-sheet forgery cosen proceeded In the criminal court Wednesday, the work of selecting a Jury coming flntt The sixteen itrurk jurymen responded to their namee, but all wanted to be exciund. In some cases the court granted their request. In the case of ooe of them, whom Mr. Converse, for the defense, seemed particularly anxious to secure as a juror, but who was very anxious to be excused, and 'whom the court'was' Inclined to let go, there was an Melting scene. Mr. Converse In his speech against excusing tbe juror, said he feared there wiui a scheme to thus exhaust tbe panel, and then have the court fill the jury-box with such a jury as be liked. Tb* lawyer waxed warm when be referred to this,. and mod the terms. "conspiracy," "ring;,"' "clique," meaning by them tbe Cltiiens' oom- mlttee, which has managed the prosecution, and Intimating that the prosecuting attorney and the court were members of it. This fired the'prosecutor to reply In hot words. He said Mr. Converse bad tried to smirch the reputation of every man who had taken a stand against fraud at the ballot. It 1U- became him to try tosmlrob the characters of the men who made up the citizens' committee. They wore as high above him'ai heaven was above bell This was not the only tally- sheet forgery he knew of; and be intimated that when the truth, of the- matter was got at Mr. Converse himself would be found to be implicated. Mr. Convene In reply tried to keep cool, but soon fell into fierce invectives. Both gentlemen were applauded from tbe lobby, and the court could not maintain order. He finally called the attorneys down. Judge Thurman then spoke. He said that he, like Rip Van Winkle, might have been asleep-tor twenty years, but In his days at the bar attorneys did not indulge in scene* like tbe oae he had just witnessed. Bo far as be was concerned he. proposed to treat every one connected with the- trial with civility and courtesy, and expected civility and courtesy in return.
