AN ALABAMA SENATOR'S VIEW. Morgan Thinks the Bohoplmnstar Is Abronil Rather Too Aggressive^. WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 3L—Morgan made a notable speech In the senate Monday against the educational bill. He said ho could not approve Its policy because It belonged to that class of intensive legislation which, like intensive agriculture and a great many other intensive things, recoiled and produced a relapse Instead of promoting a healthy, steady and pmna.ient growth. He would not consent tbat the state of Alabama should be under any coercion, moral or other resolution calling upon him for Information as to the discharges of employes made by him, explains and justifies these discharges, defends the administration of bis office, and emphatically denies the charge that the congressional work of the office is largely in ar- re»rs. Ha declares that during the forty- five days of the Fiftieth congress the printing oidered by congrera hod incroawl 40 per cent over tint oulorcxl dui ing a similar period of the Fcr ; y-nlnth ronRre^n, but -states that the work has been r.' r °rnp^y bandied with a working force of 800 lwa employes than wera on the rolls of the office at the beginning of the Forty-ninth congress. The letter gave rise tn a short debate, during which Cutcheon offered a resolution providing for the appointment of a special com- mittoe to.inventigate the present administration of the printing offlco. Finally a substitute for this, offered by Springer, was adopted, which extends the Investigation so aa to cover the administration of the present public prlntee_and tbat or his predecomor, Rounds, Vho is doad. Read of Maine thought It would not help members to got their document* quicker to Investigate a man. who Is dead, and appealed to Springer to Withdraw his substitute resolution, but the latter would not do so, saying that he wanted to Institute, a comparison between the work of the office under the present and a previous public printer.

The—Charges Against the Beading. WASHINGTON CITT, Jan. 31.—John I* Lee, John H. Davis and Hugh McQarvey, a committee representing tho Pennsyl- j vania striking railroaders and miners, arrived here Monday night, and will lay before congress a memorial stating that the Philadelphia & Reading Railroad company, the Philadelphia & Heading Coal and Iron 1 company, the Lehlgh -Valley Railroad company, and otbor corporations have unlaw- \ fully conspired with individuals to raise the price of coal to an unreasonable figure, and wise, or even exposed to temptation under ! for this purpose have, by enforcing a lockout — •• - • ' in the entire Lehigh and Schuylkill anthracite coal systems, prevent**! tha mining and shipping of coal from these systems to any part of the Unite 1 Btates. They ask as the representatives of t&.OOO worklngmen tbat congress appoint a special committee of the house of representatives to investigate the cause of said lock on t as spuodlly as possible. Grave-Xtobbera Arrested* WASHINGTON Crrr, Jaa 81. — Percy Brown, an aged grave-robber, has been arrested here (or robbing graves in the prominent cemeteries of Washington City. Be and his sister Maude, each past 70, live In a subterranean apartment near the capitol, and have b->en jointly engaged In this work for many years. She says they were born In Russia, of wealthy paranta. She became .the wife of a president of the Royal Medical college, and thus became familiar with dissecting rooms and the art* of the trade she now plies. She and her brother, whose home has been for years almost within the shadow of the capitol, have despoiled, she says, probably SOU graves. this bill. If congress would take off the burden of surplus taxation Alabama would take care of her own com" mon schools. She was doing It now In a way to put to tho blush many of the older states. The next step In the progress of usurpation would bo compulsory education. The schoolmaster Intended to take possession of the land, and this bill would give him In the state of Alabama, 113,000,000 a year In salaries, while all the state expenses of the government were but $800,000. • • • Blair remarked that be did not believe In compulsory education. Morgan sold that that was certainly the only reason why compulsory education was not In the bill, because the senator from New Hampshire had got everything; else in it that he believed in. As to the political objects of the bill, the senior senator from New Hamp- shlrc[Blai r] wanted to protect the ballot box by eduoitlng the negroes; while the Junior senator [Chandler] wanted to do It by taking the shotguns out of the hands o( white men. That was the proposition. They, bod bo more right to Interfere with voting In the, stato of Mississippi than be [Morgan] had to Interfere with a man's going to church in New Hampshire, lie believed that education was safer in the bands nf the fathers, and mothers in tba commnolty than la the hands of "patent outside" teachers, and that one Of the defects of the common school system .was the discouraging of the co-operation _pf parents. Several attempts had been made by congress to benefit the coalition,.of the negroes. The FreedmensMtenk was one of them. It did not make the negrose rich, but it made other people rich, This bill was another gift to the negroes; but It was a gift which would destroy them. It would take from that race of people all the manhood which they possessed, and prevent the very best efforts of their friends in the south from making anything of them. , IN THE SENATE AND HOUSE.

Bioux CUT, Ia., Jan. 8U—The sematlonal story which comes from Cedar Rapids regarding the Haddock case has revived and strengthened a theory which many thoughtful citizens hererhave entertained over stnoe tbe night of the shocking tragedy. That theory was that some old enemy had taken advantage of the excitement of the times and deliberately took tb* clergy man's,'life, confident in tbe belief that tha saloon element would be held responsible, and that some one of their number would be arrested, tried, convicted and hanged for the brutal crime. Wencll Cerney, a Bohemian carpenter, while laboring under the delusion that he was at last being bunted down for tbe Haddock murder, attempted to commit suicide in a lumber yard at Cedar Rapids. As he came to Blouz City from Chicago about the time of the tragedy and left very soon afterward there were some who hinted to him. It ll reported, that be had something to do with the crime. Thesuspicion seems to have haunted him. After the doctor bad sewed up the would-be suicide's razor gashos an Interpreter remarked; "They have found out who killed Haddock." -7 "No they haven't,"promptly responded the wounded man. "Tbey have not fonnd him." . ••As soon as Cerney somewhat recovered from tbe attempt upon his own life he became retlcont and would not converse on tbe subject of the murder. * For several weeks prior to tbe fatal night of Ang. 3, 18S0, Slox City was In the throes of intense excitement, caused by the attempted enforcement of the Clark law. Rev. Mr. Haddock was prominent in securing evidence and appearing as a witness against saloon men. Ono day wben the court-room was crowded Rev. Mr. Haddock was upon the wi-nosi stand. As bis eyes wandered rat over tbe large audience they rested upon the features of a .stranger to Bloux City, but familiar to the minister. Haddock's face paled, and a nervous tremor paxsed over his strong person. Immediately on leaving the witness stand at the adjournment hour. Mr,_Hnddock_app!ledta-lh8. court for and was granted permission to carry concealed weapons, and on returning home the gear-wheel found near his body the night of the murder was fashioned Into a formidable slungsbot. Haddock Informed his wife that an old and deadly enemy hod appeared In the court room, bnt be vouchsafed no further Information. Out of tbe 15U witnesses called In the Arensdorf trials there was one young man whose evidence did not vary from first to last. He strongly and persistently averred that the slayer of Rev. Haddock approached him from the rear, following him from tbe Columbia house corner, and fired tbe fatal shot at the very moment when Haddock was mot'by Arensdorf and Peters. The murderer then ran north and the others scattered In all directions. This young ' man, Julius Lebreton, was at tbe engine bouse a few paces south looking from the window, and by tbe relative position of tbe electric light and gas street lamp was In tfee best position to see the occurrences there enacted. In view of publlo sentiment during these trials It would have been suicidal for Arens- dorfs attorneys to bavs attempted to prove that the shot had been flred by other than a saloonkeeper, yet Jud?e Weaver then and now believes Haddock was shot from tbe rear, and the doctors who examined the wound testified tbat th* ball entered baok of the shoulder blade, An officer who believes the theory advanced above has sought through the east, south and north for the man he believes to be the murderer, but thus for without success. In all probability the real criminal will not be known until the man whom Haddock saw and recognized in the court-room or B deadly enemy is ran to cover and recognised. It is not -impossible that this man Oerney is the instrument through which the Haddock murder mystery will be finally cleared up. . OBJECTED MURDEROUSLY. A Young Han Assassinated by the Father and Brother of His Sweetheart* ST. JOSEPH, Ma, Jan. 31.—About 8:80 o'clock Sunday night, William Bstes, 18 yean old, shot aad Instantly killed William -Bl akely, a young man about the same age, at* Wallace, a small town ten miles south of this city.
