February 'There is a young democrat in congress from "West Virginia, by the name of John Pendleton, whose scat is contested THEY WANT THE EAJtTHf. o by a Mr. Atkinson, a republican. The committee on has considered the .case, and have reported in favor of unseating Pen-dleton. However, thtue is a minority re- port, signed by the democrats of the commit- tee, that Pendleton was justly elected. Pen- dleton will be turned out, and -when he poes there will be no words of regret from the democrats. A CRINGING STATESMAN. They will refuse to vote, it is true, to follow their own precedent in the Smith-Jackstm recently decided. They also believe that IVndleton wnb elected. But they will bo triad tosoehim go, for by his actions be has Ihor- disgusted all democrats.

Clarkson replied tha ho disagreed with the Amnrtcua people, thai he know Dudley at the Chicago convention had received letters from, him, and decreed him thoroughly competent. He expected to allow the appointment to stand, but it Judge Crisp u ho would send a postoffi.ce inspector to Americns, and if he made an unfavorable report then the appointment would be with- drawn.

In that event Mat Davis will suioly get it. C'ENSrS SFFEttVISOflS. Five of the Georgia, census were appointed today. Tliere was only one change made from the list, of appointments predicted in Tuesday's COVSTITITIOX. That was in tho pistil district. William, A.

An appointment for this district will, however, bo Bii-ide in a few dajs. The appointments, were follows: C C. Halley, first district. Joseph E. Theibedeau, third. Marion Bethune, fourth. Isaac Beckett, fifth. A. Harris, 'sixth. Harris was a supervisor ten years ago. There is some doubt about Atlanta gut tin JT a eminent road built to McPhersonbarracks. Secretary Proctor said today he did not want to recommend for the same appropriation bill the pill-chase of 388 acres of ground for target practice and an appropriation for the construc- tion of a road, and he thought, perhaps, it would bo better to buy the land this year mid build the rna'T later. However, he has fnade no decision jet. HOAR'S INFAMOUS BILL. Yesterday Senator Hoar, of Massachusetts, introduced in the sonato a bill similar to that introduced in the house by Mr. of Ohio. Hoar's bill provides that the districts from which the members of the fifty-second congress shall "be elect- ed, shall be the earn a in territory and boundaries as those from which the fifty-first congress were elected. Both bills are to pre- vent the democratic legislature of Ohio from gerrymandering the districts in that slate in order to increase the democratic representa- tion in tho neit congress, A few years ago the Ohio republicans arranged the districts iu such a manner that as they stand at present there are democratic votes in tho state for every representative, while for every repub- lican representative there are only re- publican voters. Of the twenty-one represent- atives, sixteen are republicans. Now, how- ever, when the democrats_have overcome their opponents at the polls and are prepared to right the injustice that hasbceii done them for years past, it is proposed that the government shall interfere and prevent tho democratic legisla- ture of Ohio from the state. As- tonishing as this proposition is, the republicans seem determined to rush it through congress and c'aim that it in constitutional. The serious- jieis of tho republicans in their determination to railroad this bill through has stirred up the democrats as much as any of Heed's rul- They, however, think the people will not tolerate congress interfering in preventing the redistricting of states, for if congress has that power, then it has tho power to redistricfr, and, indeed, to arrange tlie districts of all the states as it chooses. It is a decided move to- centralization, and if carried out will make it possible for the p arty in power to The jprogrrsmmfe Stated by One of Their Speakers. WASHIXOTOTJ, February house met at 11 o'clock th's morning ifi continuation of yesterday's session. 0ebate on. the proposed code of rules was continued by Mr. Dpekery, of Missouri, in a vein of earnest Criticism. The proposed rules, he said, would relieve con- gress of the necessity of repeating taxation, at least as far as the surplus was concerned, rle predicted that at the end of the session the surplus would have disappeared by reason of the prodigality which the rules invited. Discussing the question of permit- ng the speaker to count a quorum, bis profound regret that any con- siderable party interest could have induced tha republicans to abandon-constitutional grounds ior an unexplored region either of parliament- ary law oroi new powers sought to be conferred on the speaker. The proposition to allow tlie speaker to decide what dilatory motions were, was based upon tbe idea of infallibility, incor- ruptibility and impartiality of the speaker. He would be glad that the speaker should be shielded from this temptation as, however, small a majority of Ids party might be. THEItt PROGI1AMME OUTLINED. Mr. Morse, of Massachusetts, in the course of a defense of the proposed code said: "The business men of the country are demanding business legislation, and that the "do nothing policy" of congress for the last ten years shall :hange, and how shall you change it without amending tlie rules that bind tlie body, hand and foot. The business men of the country want a bankrupt law. We want, at least, radical amendments to the interstate com- merce law. "We want greatly needed public biuldmgs in the centres of population and bus- hiest. We w.uit life-saving stations, light houses and needed improvements to the rivers and harbors, to keep pace with this great and growing country. We want laws regulating and restricting immigra- tion. We want a wise revision of the tariff, on protection tines. The union soldiers want the soldiers' dependent pension bill that that no soldier shall dieju a poorhoiihc, ot'-ed by Grover Cleveland. Wu want a navy and coast defenses that will command confi- dence at home and respect abroad. The coun- try has been demanding this legislation, for ten yrarn, antl the only wav to reach it is to cut tho ch.iin-s that bind this body, as is proposed by new rules, and make a republican body, where a majority, who are responsible for its acts can do business THE NEW DAY BEGINS. At the house adjourned, and at noon the session of Wednesday began. The journal having been road, Mr. Bou- t-elk1, of Maine, asked unanimous consent for its approval, but objections came from tho democratic side and a loll call was made necessary. The journal was 119, nays 1 Buckalew, tha speaker, counting seventy-two democrats as present and not voting.

He was honest and straightforward in business matters. He was not a drinking man, and. lived unostentioosly in the Barcelona. He was a member of Dr. Paxton's church, the Presbyterian, in West Forty-second street, and had a paw there. His father was Charles Green, who had large cotton mills in the sooth. From him Green inherited quite a for- tune. General Sherman made his headquar- ters in Charles Green's house in Savannah, and said of his host "I consider Charles Green the most perfect gentleman I ever met." Green came north, ten years ago, I took him in business with me, and he certainly had every opportunity to make a fortune, and keep his pood name. He had been superin- tendent of his father's mill, and tlie chanso was too great for 1dm. He could not stand prosperity." MK. MACKAIA'S STATEMENT. Mr. Mackall, Green's brat her- m-law, said tbero was no doubt about hi; insanity. He -spoke to Green 011 the subject some time ago, and the latter said: "I don'E know but that'll maybe crazy, but III was committed to an insane asylum, I should go stark mad." Mr. Mackall saw Green at 3 o'clock, day afternqpn, and asked him. why lie had married Mrs. McCrea.

He Asks for Federal Control of Elections In Mississippi. "WASHINGTON, February 12. J. R. Clial- niPi-s, of Mississippi, made au argument today before the house committee on the election of president and vice-president on the sttbject of the necessity of a federal election law for tlio state ot Mississippi. He declared that he did not como before tho committee to assail ROdKR A. PR YOU. In proof of the insanity of Green a certificate of Dr. H. Hoibrook Curtis, who had been his attending physician, was furnished. This explanation of Mr. Green's actions very plausible, when viewed in the of subscqiiciit developments, which show that Mrs. McCrea undoubtedly used tho influ- ence which she had acquired over him to further Her own designs, Somo months ago his relatives, upon learning of his attentions to Mrs. McCrea, confronted him with their knowledge, and be promised to drop the woman. He did not, however, and Mr. Mackall made two trips subsequently to New York ex- pressly to brfek up the affair, but without suc- cess. A letter was sent to Mrs. McCrea, tell- ing her that Green was a married man, and asking herto discontinue her relations with him. She replied that she loved him and would not him up. A BRAZEN WOMAN'S DEMAND. It was learned that a month or more ago, Mrs. McCrea said to Green "I want you to go with me to Savannah to sco your wife. You must say to her: 'I don'b you. I do love Mrs. McCrea, and yon must give me up, and get a divorce, so I can iniirry the woman I love.' Green said be could not do this. It is sup- posed he had not courage to appear before his brothers under such circumstances. Mrs. McCrea, however, did not stop here. At 4 o'clock the next morning, she appeared at Green's flat in the Barcelona, accompanied by two maids. Holding a pistol in her hand she pointed it at Green, and exclaimed: "Unless you go to Savannah with me at once, I will shoot you." Green rail through the flat and escaped by the back stairs. He made some promise or other to lier later, to avert the threatened shooting. THIS POSITION OF THB FIESI.

Tewksbury, a niece of ex-Governor Straw, of Xew Hamp- shire, who was the belle of Man- chester. Green met her in Man- chester, where ho was for a time engaged in business. She is a beautiful and accomplished woman. They were married eleven years ago. The children are a boy of nine and a girl of seven.

B. RECOGNITION OF BltAZIX. Tlio Senate Passes tlie Joint Con- gratulating: the New Republic. WASHINGTON, February the senate Mr. Sherman called up the concurrent resolu- tion heretofore reported by him from the com- mittee on foreign relations, coneratulatins the people of the United States of Brazil on their adoption of a republican form of government, and said that it was the first clause of the reso-' lution introduced by Mr. Morgan, and that the republic of Brazil had already been recognized in confirmation of the appointment of an envoy extraordinary, it bad been thought proper to this joint resolution, so that it might be presented at the same time. The resolution is in these -words: That the United States of America congratulates the people of Itrazii on their just and peaceful as- sumption of the powers, duties and responsibili- ties of self-Eoverument, based on the tree consent of the governed, and on their recent adoption, of a republican form of government. The joint resolution was passed unanimously __yeas 45, nays none. The chairman from the committee on foreign relations reported a joint resolution requesting the president to mvite the kings of the Hawaiian islands to select del- egates to represent the king in the Pan-Amer- ican congress now assembled at the capital of tliis republic, and it -was passed. south. The negroes wore able to speak fully for themselves. He said that he would trust j his life vrith the southern democrats, but he declared that when they stole or robbed the ballot box at elections they thought that they j were doing God a service. Congress should puss an aqt to enforce in the south the fifteenth amendment to the constitution. It had been said that the fifteenth amendment could not be enforced in the southern states. This was a serious matter and required atten- tion. Congress had the right, ho insisted, to provide a federal election law. It was not necessary to provide a remedy where, it was not needed, but where it was needed there it should be applied. Snpervisors of elections would answer all purposes -where elections were conducted fairly. Some other means must be at hand for tins purpose. He thought a law might be enacted providing that when- ever a certain number of citizens asked for registration by United States officials such request should be granted. Mr. Chalmers favored tlie bill introduced by Representative Kelly, of Kansas, with some modifications as a measure that would tend to meet the needs which he insisted existed in Mississippi of "a fair ballot."

I, of course, hastened home. When I confronted Green with the facts on Monday and demanded to know the truth, he said: "It was only a joke amongus four."
