Ho «nid ho hud been with tho road since lt« 01'- gnniMtlou in ISi'-u. He had done a groat deal of bard work for the road, and his associate* had u:»o worked hard He had worked twelve hours a dny for the rond, not junketing, around in a Hpecial car, but B3 a laborer. Whdii !IH HiNt went to tho road rails were worth 54J a ton. Since then they have been worth a<t much as *100 a ton, and wore sent round l.y Ciipe Horn. Ha had paid as much an tSi.'H) i CB''|I for locomotives, and 0 per cent, ii.tenml tux. It la a wond r now. he said, how the road had ever pulled through, yet there were people who bolieve the rond mimt huve made a lot of money. The rood was built by. piecemeal. Tbe management, the orgainzirs, had to work their way up gradually. Huntington said he did not come here to make a speech, but to talk Individually to the committee about tbe indebtedness of the Cjntral PaciuY 1 , for purpose of seeing If tbu government could not ba paid without ruin- Ing tho rond. He wen'into details as to thi> bulldinc of tbe road, showing tho great risks tnkon, tbe bnrdnbipa encountered In borrowing money, selling stock, ot<x, and declared thnt for mnny years ho was anxious to let go his bold upon the road. Ho told how tho company bad sent to China for laborers; bow they encountered serious ob- utncles ill procuring help for three years, at any cost, when it seemed that everything would fail; how he luid awake of nigbla wondering where th.i money would corns from to pay the bill-i; bow the Indians had to be pacified. Now, the government officers and the public run over in an hour In o palace car the road it took three years to bulliL They cannot see tho trace of hardships the builders bad.

They were himself, Lelaiul Stanford, Mark Hopkins and Chqrles Crocker. The rond wna poor, and nlways bad been. "lint have tho men grown poor with tho road I" Inquired Mason. "Well, 110," w ( an the reply; "they bavo grown comparatively rich, but they have done so by their own effort*. They have seen tho time, however, when they sold 8 per cent, bonds at 6!) cents on the dollar. When the road was finished tha Central Pacific company owned no Iwndu, had no money, and owed more than they owned." As to the plan of uuttlomcmt proposed, Iluntington began by saying that the government had given the Northern Pacitlcinore than It had loaned tbo Central Pacific, whio'i bad'the effect of Inking (rum the latter, by competition, all- the net earnings of the through business, leaving the Central Pacific in an impoverished condition. He thought thnt all the Central Pacific owed tho government should be put into 250 semi- nnnu'il payments, doling from next July, which would bring it into u iliapo the road could meet, Hlu coinpuny would like to piy all tho owed now, but they Were poor and could not rlo it. x Puthwuite wanted to know if the Central Pad fie was so poor It could not not pay its Indebtedness In fifty year*. . • "I think it could not," waa the reply; "but you bavo our statement, and can judge at well of tbat as I caa" He was asked what was tbe value ot tba Central Pacific, and be replied that It could_ be built now a greatdeal cheaper than it was' built. He believed that it oflold now be built at les* than the first mortgage indebt-; edness. Tbe seiul-annunl payments, on a: basis of an aggregate'of WO, or the whole to run 125 years, would amount to payments of about »1,090,000 a year. "Do you make these propositions Individually, or for tho Central Pacific companyf inquired Hovey, of the committee. . "Well," replied. Huntington, "I hare no doubt that whatever I hern propose would be fulfilled by tbe Central Pacific!, company. I have been its vice-president ever sioca Sts organization." A member of the . committee suggested that when the governmont extend* tbe time for final and rompleto : payment beyond seventy-five yi»nr«, it could nut- g«t Interest for the debt. Huntingtou replied tbat bis proposition was equal to an extension of flity-two years. In reply to a quis'.lon by Outhwatte, Hantlngton naid bo,lid not think It would be advisable to throw the road on the market and sell it. He illd not think tbat any other civilizod government would do such a thing, but the United Btatoa government was a peculiar -inn, it exacted everything and paid nothing. ' • '.''•• A 8iiL'(;i-»tlon was made! by a member of the committee about what tbe road owed the government, to which Huntington pas-- sionately replied that, lit fact, the Central Pacific did not owe tha: government anything. - •'•'•• *How much security do you propose to give the government If you get nn extension!" inquired Weber. "All of the sutiaidizod property," said Huntington, "und 400 miles of road outnlde the puUidy. We Imvj between iO,OuO,UOti and 11,000.000 acres of lands ontaide the subsidy. We offer that as security also. I want to settle this debt aa soon as possible.

But there was some serious business to be dona He declared that thU was not a case such as be had contemplated referring to thn c,>urt of claims, for this bill sought to empower the court to Bad a verdict. ' Pant Trains For the Woit. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 11.—The postmaster-general has renewed the contract with the Chicago, Burlington & Qdlncy railroad for a fast mall service between Chicago and Council Bluff*. The new contract Is superior to the old one in the following respects: Tbe old contract cnllcd for fast mall service on n schedule of sixteen hours west only, six times per week. Tbe present contract calls for dally service, toch way, upon a schedule of fourteen hours and a half, the leaving time ~at either end to be determined at the department. At Council Bluffs the fast mail train from Ban Fran- xlsco will—mako—clo«—connection;—and tlm time between Ban Francisco and New York will be shortened twenty-four J hours. The fast train will be put on March 1.1th. Canadian Railway Competition. WASHINGTON Crrv, Feb. 11. —The senate Inter-state commerce committee hold a special meeting Friday to listen to an argument by Gea J. H. Wilson, a distinguished railroad Guilder nud manager, on'the subject of the competition of Canadian railroads in carrying freight from one point. In the United States to another. Gen. Wilson urged an amendment of the inter-state commerce act to provide that goods shipped In bond from one point In the United States across the Canadian border, and designed to be retunjtxl to another point in the United Btatea shall bo subject to duties upon their return. This amendment, would virtually cut off the present Canadian competition In tbe Inter-elate freight transportation of this country. The House Ttikea a Day Qtt, WASUINOTOH Crrr, F^b.

The UOUBO then went into committee of the whole oh tbe private calendar, and after a long debate, principally between Springer and COT, the bill for tbe. relief of Nathaniel McKay and tbelielrs ot Donald McKay was reported favorably to the bouse. Here tiprlnger again resisted Its passage and succeeded In-preventing It by demanding the reading of tbe bill, and the house adjourned until Monday. 1 f Itrnmm'i View of the Reading Strike. •>.. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 11.— Representative Brumm was before the Reading strike 'Investigating committee 'Friday. He said tho Reading and other companies had gotten •possession of about all the mlnee In the region, and In order to keep up the price of coal limited the. production, forcing a strike ot lockout when the limit was reached. Tbe low'Wages of miners, bn said, wore caused by exorbitant freight charges. .Coal cost but $2 per ton at tha mines and 15 cimls a ton to transport to Philadelphia, yet there it sold for $4 per ton. The railway hands were probably in tile, wrong at first, bat the company was doubtless to blame for tbe continuance o( the trouble.

He arose in a rage and declared tbat K McDonald dared to intimate fraud ia bis management he would place him "where tbe hand of God could not reach him. 1 ' In the face of such a terrible threat as this McDonald hastened to disclaim- any imputation; Bis resolution was defeated, and the state 1 * interest In. the road ordered to be sold. l>«ei fl-hi, WU, Badly Scorched.

LONDON, Feb. 11. —The sensation in Parliamentary circles Friday was the arrest of James Glihooly, Patrick O'Brien and J.-B. Pyne, Iilsh members, for Violation of tho crimes act. O'Brien's arrest, however, was a mistake, as bo was taken for Pyne. He was exceedingly wrath and protested tbat he waen't the man wanted, but without avail ontil his arrival at Scotland Yard, where he was Identified and promptly released, Pyne's arrest has raised a serious question— if he can prove what he says—and oae that will react on the police. He Insist* that be had his foot on the step of tbe cab, which was within tba precincta of the house when he waa tak-in into custody, and stoutly claims that the police had no right to touch him. When the police laid bands upon him Pyne struggled fiercely to escape from their grasp, but his struggles were ot no avail The police, on the other hand, deny that Pyne was within tbe precincts of parliament when arrested, and In substantiation of their statement, assort that be was some distance from the boundary line of the jurisdiction of the house, and from his cab as well. When approached by the officers, they assert, Pyne made a dash for bis cab, which was standing »lx feet within the railing bounding the parliamentary precincts, shouting at the Bamo tim: "I will not be arrested." His attempt to regain his cab was a failure, and ha was sefcxl bufore he got inside tWSrailing. Gilbooly succeeded In ejpllng tbe police and reaching bis seat in tm house. When it was ascertained by the police that he had eluded them, and was temporarily within the jurisdiction of a power greater than themselves, they Immediately set to work to guard every exit from the Westminster pal- aoe to prevent his escape, and the wits of hi* friends at oocK-becanie active In tbe formulation of-fei^a ncheme whereby he might be aole to outwit the constabulary, and Iwtnk-i himself to a place ot. safety. Rumors were rife that it bad bean planned to take him from the terrace Into a boat and convey him down the Thames to a hiding plnce unknown even to most of bis Home Rule colleagues, but tbe circulation of this report led the police to place a strong guard upon the river and intense Interest prevailed among the members to learn whether Saturday's sun would rise on Gilbooly prisoner or Gilhooly fugitive. Any way, tbe tactics of both the police and the friends of t IB went Cork member afforded general amusement. Gilbooly was finally arrested Friday night the moment he appeared outside the gates of the parllnmentary grounds. He waa accompanied In his exit from the grounds by at least 100 members of parliament, who refused to make way for tho police. The detectives who were waiting for Gllboolv hustled the members aside, took him Into custody and conducted him to Scotland YarJ, where the crowd of commoners followed the ofQcors and their prisoner, cheering loudly for Ireland and home rule. Tbe arreitt was nltnosied' by Parnoll and other prominent members. Gilhooly was provided with, a couch in tbe Inspector's room, and made as comfortable as pOMsible. Tbe Indignation of Patrick O'Brien at his arrest through being mistaken tar Gilhooly increases so largely a* to threaten the explosion of the honorable gentleman if something or somebaily dnjsn't shortly give vent to bis pent-up feelings of outraged dignity sod rights. Frlonds have endeavored to dla- snade him from carrying out his expressed Intention of bringing suit against tbe police for damages, but the more be Is remonstrated with the more determined he appears to be to dash bis head against the wall of public ridicule for tho barren privilege of proving to the police what they have already acknowledged, that thoy ware mistaken. • BALFOUR PRESENTS HIS FIGURES, pain, and thnt, hU p,-iw»ri of respiration und deglutition nr> pTfroiiy unimpaired.

LONDON, Fi-b. 11.—Balfour rose In the commons FHJay-nlghl and proceedei to give the stalenie it called fur by Gladstone and promised by Smith as to the decrease of crime In Ireland. He first commented on tbe changed tone of Gladstone as evinced by his speech Thursday night. Where, he asked, was the Impassioned orator who had endeavored to inflame tl.o public against the law!, Gladstone [interrupting]—There Isn't an btom of- foundation tor sucb assertions as the honorable gentleman has put forth. Balfour, continuing, recalled the Incitements to resistance to the law contained ia Gladstone'* speech at Nottingham, and expressed a wish that all opposition speakers would change their tone 09 Gladstone had done. Grava refl-otlons, I/a' tali, bad been cut upon the Irish magistrates, but of sev- ent}-three magistrates who had come in for a share of opposition condemnation. Earl Bpenoer bad appointed or approved the appointment of ilxty. He quoted statistics showing a considerable decrease of crime under tbe coercion act and said that tbe statistics of boycotting especially showed the. result of the act During tbe year ended with July, 183?, 870 person* had been boycotted, wbereus the total number from that time to data was 20a Efforts to suppress boycotting had been particularly successful In Clare anil Kerry, where tbe league bad been Buppreswl. He reprobated and deplored tbe vlmperution of the government and of persons which bad been indulged in by certain members, characteris- ing thrir action in thf* respect as a blemish upon their political life. After citing other figures and additional Instancus of unreason- Ing opposition to the government's policy, BaHour concluded by claiming to have proved that that policy had bean an unqualified succest . i John Morley, replying, said tho house could infer from Half GUI'• reinurki tbe temper with which he had administered the coerciou act, The period showing a decrease of crime Included six months during which eviction notices could not be executed. Tbe diminution of boycotting, be assarted, was doe to the changed feellag and sense of responsibility of the Liberal co-worken with Irish justice in Ireland. If tbe Irish aspirations ware ever destroyed tbe effecu of coercion would become painfully apparont. EdwarJ Harrington characterised Balfour's speech t» a choice example of that gentleman's mendacity, Tbe speaker called Harrington loonier, aud the latter withdrew his exprvwion at the command of the chair. Continuing. Harrlugtoa contended that th* government bod manipulated the figure* purporting to show the doorcase ot crime bt Ireland, and assarted tbat toe magUtrats* aodeaVor to irritate Ui» paopla.

Wn-KKBDAJUiB, Pa., Feb. 11.—Tbe Wyoming valley was shaken Friday morning as It bad never been shaken before. It was not an earthquake, as many at Wllkeaborre supposed, but a terriflo explosion twenty-one miles down the river, at Wapwallopen.

Tbe explosion occurred at the packing bouse of the Dupont Powder company, about three-quarlerj of a mile from tbe \Vapwalloper station of the Pennsylvania railway. The building was not a large one, and wal used for packing the powder and preparing it for shipment. Sixteen tons of powder, was In it at the time, but bow tbe accident oo- curred will forever remain a mystery, for th» reason that the four men ia tbe bouse at tbe •time were blown to atoms, and no one ekm knew much about it. There was no warning, nothing to Indicate that danger was to be feared. An awful shock, a violent shake ot tbe ground, a toppling over of buildings, the flying of timbers, Iron and other debris through tbe air, a cry of agony from the wounded, a shouting for help, nfll came in a mlnate; then a frlauoa at tbe place where the packing-boose stood and the sad star} was told—not a vestige of it was left The man employed in It were in eternity, and even their bodies were not to be found. Pieces of them were afterwards picked up hundreds of yards away. The greater portion of the remains will never be. found. Tbe largest piece found was the part ot the nollar bone and upper ribs of Klsh- baugh that were picked up in a field three- quarters of a mile from tbe scene of the explosion.

In this city tbe win* dowa In all tbe buildings rattled, and officials In the court bouse here thought there waa an earthquake, as tbe bulldlnz shook violently. At Nanticoke and Wanamie chimneys toppled from the roofs of buildings, and school children ran in terror from tbe school boum. Men and women flocked toward the mines, where they thought the explosion happened, and where the members of their I a ml lies were at work. At Bhlokshenny tbe glass in almost every window was broken, and many persons were thrown to tbe ground. At Wapwallopeu nearly every building was wrecked. , Low Water In the Boiler. WABABH, Ind...
