INTERESTING DEBATE OVER A PENSION TO MRS. QEN. LOQAN. ' The HI I Pmmns by a " L»rje MBjnrlly "— A Cupiml Nuw^paper Known All About the I'omlng T»rt)r Hill—gpannnr Pro- po*vs to Xx?ok Aftnr ths Tfllegrftpb Bu«l- Bens —1'lumb's Mnre*s Neflt, W*sniifOTO«c CITT, Jan 27. —The interest In conipv-iitoual proceedlilgs Thursday bed- tered on the bill providing a pension Of $^,000 per annum for Mrs. General Logsri. Berry, of Arkannns, who rarely Indulges Ih debate, Improved the occasion to bitterly denounce tho bill Among other things he said the pension w»i not given for dUttd- gnlsbed survioas, bat to prevent the wldo4 from becoming a charge on tho public. Thfc pension to Mrs. Hancock was not in polnd be contended, becaum O)n. Hancock was In active service when ho died, but there whsni reason why that bad precedent should be followed. He believed tbe principle of tha bifl was wrong, and be objsctod to it In the Interest of the widows of other officers and of private soldlera. I Stewart ot Nevada mode a splendid appeal in fa vur of the bill He helioved that the widows of all private soldiers would re- Joice in the pnssage 6f the measure. It was neeossnry Tor the country to have some con;- >plcuiii> L-xunplas, lotnetbltig for our young men to emulate. What would the country hove been without the name of Washington! What would It be In modern times without the n.ima of Lincoln, and what would 1C have been If no such men as Logan had livedl The senate ahouM recognize these facts, and rownrl those who furnished oon]- spicuins examples of public service. Hoar said if mere desert were the test, the same rate of compensation should be paid th« patriotic soldier as to the officer, and the same monuments erected to the one as to tb4 other; but it was to tho interest of the private soldier and of those concerned in his fame that conspicuous honors should be paid W tha military lender in bis lifetime and afte( hla death ample ond'generous provision mada for his widow and orphans. It had been saldj that tbe secret of Napoleon's success was that every soldier under him realised that he carried a marshal's baton la his knapsack, and there was nothing more Inspiring to the courage of a private soldier than to feel that ho mlzht be promoted to the chief places Iri military command. ' D.iwee, who reported the bill from the pensions committee, expressed great regret that objections had been made to it. In all timed nations had delighted In doing honor to their distinguished citlsens who, like Gen. Logan, had Illustrated In many capacities the virtue* of the institutions under which they had been reared. The case of Gen. Shields was paraU lei to that of Gea Logan—each had served In the Mexican war, each had been a mom- bor of the senate, each had rendered distinguished services in the war of the rebellion, and each carried to his grave the scars of wounds received in the service of his country. .Mrs. Shields bad been granted by oon-i grew a pension of 1100 per month, and no objection was made to ft. Reagan antagonised tbe bill'with as much, bitterness -as did Berry. Ha charged that! the measure was in violation of fundamental' principles and, endangered the very cbarao-, ter of the government The founders of tbe! government had prohibited congress and the 1 states from grauting patents ot nobility,proceeding on tbe Idea that there was to be; no privileged class. For three-quarters of a century this was the practice; bao dnrinjtho last quarter of a century this principle badi been disregarded and federal judges; and: army and navy officers bad been retired with pensions. This was un-American' and not: in consonance with our system of govern- 1 meut. • Call of Fiorida,dlsagreeing with Berry and Reigan, made a very graceful effort on be-! half of the bill, which attracted the marked attention of Republican senators. There never bad been, be said, and never -would be a government ia which merit was not re- 1 warded, and there could be no society In which rewards were denied to virtue. ThU was a principle of public policy which the] people of a free, republic should pherlsh even more than the people of a monarchy. ' THE PROPOSED TARIFF BILL, United Stntw, England, Canada and Ireland In favor of international arbitration waspra- soutod to tbe houiia. A bill to discontinue 3- oent coinage was reported. A bill was passed relieving the plaintiff from security for cost» In cases removed from state to federal courts, when 'plaintiff is a cltiran of tbe state In which the suit originated; alno a bill providing for termi of court aa Q ilncy. Ills. An attempt to set aside the time eftcr tha morning hour, from Fsl> 31, for publio build- Ing bills was resisted by filibustering, and the home adjourned without action on the matter. A Forecast ol What It Will B», Had« by a Newspaper. WASBINOTOM Crrr, Jan. 27.—The Star, •ays the-Democrats of the ways and means: committee have almost completed their tariff! bill "They have reached," It says, "a point now where they are in perfect agreement, and the bill In a general form is completed. There remains now little for them to do beyond the manual labor ojt getting tbe bill In form, and some missionary, work to Rtrangthen tbe bill They ore advancing In a way that Is more satisfactory than they had hoped for. The missionary work to be .done is simply the yielding of little points here and there, when they can thus gain strength for the. bill without making any serious sacrifice. The bill as reported will put wool on tbe free-list, but, b/ way' of compromise, make a material reduction In tbe tax on tobacco and fruit brandies and • a reduction of -SO per csut on sugar. Salt, lumber, and other such raw material will go on tbe free list. There will be a general revision and adjust- meut ot tbe tariff schedule, and the administrative features of the bill will be practically those formerly advanced by Hewitt At every step 'they have 'consulted expediency to a great extent, and have so managed as to gain strength in many directions. They have p irfect confidence that thoy will be able to pass the bill almost as reported. An exception may be made as to the wool clause. After a tight they may compromise on this b] putting coarse wools only on the free list, if '.hay can gain some decided advantage by so doing. They appear, however, to think that they will not ha re to make any change ia the bill In this respect." MRS. LOGAN'S PENSION BILL.

Toe seaats) Plumb's E ee i Arc Addled. Crrr, JsnT 37.—Referring to Plumb 1 ! resolution to investigate ttia funding act, and tha alleged discovery ot skullduggery In changing the word "for" to "after," Senator Sbarman said Thursday night: "Senator Alllton and myself inveitl- gatod the whole affair to-day, and I am saV bided there 1s absolutely nothing In it. In preparing the conference report a copy of the bill was taken as It stood at a previous stage, and the error was not at first detected, but was found and corrected before the printed copies wore stitmltted tb the mombars to be Toted npon. The error In tbe conference report may bare boon spread npon the bouse journal, and It I* llkaly that it was the bed Is upon which tho law was engro»98d for the president's signature. Tne mistake was discovered before tbe draft was signed, however,. and the correction made. A careful domination shows that a clerical error was probably made In preparing tbe conference reports, but was oorrocuxl in ample time to preserve tbe absolute validity of the law."

A Document That Ml s h» Have n«e<i More SuoorMfnlljr Written by Somebodj Kli>»— The Striken Enlist for the War and Takie as Their -Slog-an, " Corbln Mast Com* Down"— Camea-le's Men. POTTSVILLB, Pa., Jaa s!7. —Chairman Leei has ju»i issued his reply to PreaidenrCorbln^" of which Ibe following Is a copy: Mr. Corbln's statement of the railroad trouble, and what he calls facts, la known to ' be on untrue statement to mislead the pnblld, as be attempted to do in tbn miners' case, bat failed. Mr. Corbln says tbe employes of this company at Port Richmond, In charge of this' switch engines, refnsed to tram fer tho elevator . company's goods consigned to them, and for refusing were discharged. Now we ask Mr. Corbln: Wa* he not aware that the general superintendent, Mr. Swel- gard, had entered entered Into an agreement that none of the employes of the company should be discharged without a fair and ini- pertlal bearing. I will refer Mr. Corbln tb article 18 of the agreement signed by Mr. Sweigard. When the committee waited upon Mr. Sweigard be refused to comply with tbe articles of agreement, and he further refused to hold any conference with the committee. The police and Plnkerton mea were sent to Port Richmond and were on tbe company's property intimidating the etn- pjiyes before any strike bad taken placeL This fact alone, Mr. Corbin, justifies the people in saying that this strike was premeditated by the officials ot the Reading Railroad^ company. Bear in mind, Mr. Corbln, your subordinates discharged the men at Kliiar bethport without acknowledging tbe agreement between tbe company a. id Its employes, "We now would like to call the attention of Mr. Corbin to the fact that the company, of Its representative, Mr. Sweigard, has mode objections to labor organisations, and stated that they would wipe out the Knights of Labor. " 'Finally on Saturday, the 24th day of December, the general manager Issued an order that the names of such employes as did not report for doty on the morning of Tuesday. the Ii7th of December, would be stricken ols tbe rolls and their places filled by new men.' That was done.' : "Right here, Mr. Corbln, we place our slda of the case before the people, and say, that was not done. When our committee visited! Mr. Bwelgard on Mondny, Dec, 25, the committee agreed with Mr. Sweigard to make an unconditional surrender to him for the dig.' charge of the five crews, together with Barnard Bharkcy and Ambrose Hude, and then agt-eed to obey the order issued by General Manager McLeod— that tho men who did not report for duty would be discharged. Now, right hero, Mr. Corbln, we would like to oak you, did the company carry out the orders issued by the general manager whon the subordinates under the general manager dli- charged all the prominent men along the entire line of the road who compiled with his order of Saturday, Dec. 24, and did go into effect Tuesday, Dec. 271 Who Is at fault In' this difficulty — the men who obeyed tbe order; of the general manager, or the officials who disrespected Mr. McLeod and bis order of Saturday, Deo. 24t "Mr. Corbln saysi 'No man shall be ostra- cised on this road because be belongs to a labor organization. All that Is expected from our employes Is to render faithful service and obey the managemet.' "If Mr, Corbln means what he says and will act accordingly, there is no good reason why he will not hear onr side of the case, and when he gets the men's side of this case he can not say they refused to obey the order ot th* general manager; and it his officers have lost their heads and caused this strike, why not shoulder the responsibility where It belongs and start your mines and railroad and not let the public suffer any loss and inconvenience on account ot the action of a few stubborn officials over whom you have absolute control. The trouble was caused by them, and It Is the opinion of the general public that it is your duty to end the trouble. .••.-• • . "Jon* L. Lit, "Chairman of Executive Committee," The strikers at the different headquarters ore jubilant. Chairman Lee says: "Wear* positively a unit now, our foroes are positively all combined. " Secretary Duffy says: "The strike is solid; no more propositions for settlement " Chairman Davis saysi "We will fight it out jointly to the end.* It is learned that tbe cause leading to tbe above expressions was the action taken before the adjournment of the Amalgamated association on Wednesday night. That body Indorsed all previous actions of their representatives on joint- committee, and required them hereafter to accept of no compromise, other than the unconditional surrender of the company, and the granting of tbe 8 per cent. advance.' • Nothing official was ordered done in tha recognition ot the railroader*' cause. Thursday night before Snb-Dlstriot No. 13, of the National Assembly No, 185, Knight* of Labor, adjourned, the action of their members of joint committee . was ratified; the cause of tbe miners and railroaders declared a common one, and a motion wss unanimously carried that "we stand together to tbe death." i From Inside authorities your correspondent learn* that port of the work done by the sab-division was an : address to the labor or- Kanlsitioris generally, which specifically .state* oil the facts, with Important correspondence relating to tbe strike. Tbls address was very carefully prepared with tbe assistance of legal.sdvice, and will be withheld from publication until certified to by .Master Workman Lewis, who I* hourly expected from 'the coal regions. Tbe address will be made publio first at the monitor labor meeting at Baltimore to be held on Sunday. It emphatically .declares that the time for arbitration Is over— there can be no compromise pow exoept by a complete surrender of the Beading company la every particular. Neither miner* nor railroaders will make any move proposing peace. The company can alone settle this matter by now coining to the men. The strike liuee are to be drawn to the notch, a bold front maintained and iggreasive measures ogaliut the company's business instituted in every quarter. "Corbie has made hi* ultimatum— we now give him the miners;' we are united, and will ftght to the mid." Th* document then say* .arrangement* have been perfected for tbe financial support and moral encouragement of the strike, and appeals to th* brethren everywhere for contribution!; declare* ^the struggle is one ot national importance,* involving tbe very live* of all labor organisations; that it is Imperative for organised labor evsry where to join . th* fight against a common enemy.

There is no doabt but that he was exceedingly anxious to g6 back to congress. He . came op as a strong candidate for the United States senate before the last legislature, in which he was a member of the state senate. Had not Stock. bridge been promised the support of Palmer's friends Hubliell would probably have been sent to the senate. The fight for the congressional nomination was bitterly fought from the primaries up through the two djijn' session ofcthe convention, and even at tho last moment, when his friends became assured that bis cose was hopeless, nubbell refused to allow his name to be withdrawn. He feels his defeat very bitterly. Seymour Is a western New Yorker by birth and went to Sault Sta.

He has served one term in the lower house and two in the senate of the state legislature. Mr. Seymour is now in Europe, but he is known to be a protectionist of the protectionists, and a R. 'publican of the strongest partisan coat. He is 64 years old. The Prohibitionists of the Eleventh district of Michigan met In oonventlo^bere Wednesday, and nominated & a Bteele, of Schoolcraft county, as their candidate for congress.

A petltlob will be circulated among tha cltutsns for this purpose. The voloe of the respectable Republicans," said a prominent member of the party Thursday, "has not yet been heard. When an attempt was made in the primaries by a respectable white man to do anything or say anything, he was promptly suppressed. Now this element should speak out and protest to the national convention against such representatives. I think that It would be well to go furtber.and not only ask that the District) be unrepresented in the coming convention, but that it should remain so for all time.
