Presentation of the Minority Report by Messrs. I.ewis ami Goodnight. Washington', Get. I.—Tho minority of the special house committee appointed to investigate the charges against I'elision Commissioner Ilauiu—Messrs. Lewis and Goodnight—have united in the preparation of a report setting forth their opinion of the results of the investigation. The report reviews evidence in the refrigerator case and say-: “We lament that the conduct of a public official, who invokes the tine technicality of the criminal law to screen himself from proper investigation and to hide from public view the details of a business which is being conducted from one of th*1 government bureaus and concerning the character of which, so many and such damaging charges have been made.” i\s to the charge of advancement of pension claims for Lemon, in consideration of his endorsing the commissioner's note, the report states that no intimate frienship is shewn to have existed between the commissioner and Lemon and that there were no business relations before. Why should Lemon, a good business man, risk si2,OOO upon one who is afraid to have his solvency inquired into? The completed tiles system was just what Lemon demanded, and so soon as established he was ready to underwrite for the commissioner. which in1 had never before don*1, though often consulted by the commissioner about his needs during the several months before. It is thus clear, says the report, that Lemon was favored and benefitted. It is equally clear that Commissioner Unum was placed under obligations to Lemon—something no rugged integrity can approve and no delicate sense of propriety endure. In conclusion the report reads:    “Thus    it seems to us the commissioner of pensions ha- not properly esteemed the delicate duties and serious responsibilities of his great office; nor lias he measured up to that high standard of patriotic consideration for public service which should prevail in this department, adjudicating the disbursements of nearly one-third of tho entire revenues of the government. The pension office is altogether too sacred a place for the developmentof tile personal thrift and enterprise manifested in this record. It was established that a nation might properly care for those to whom it owes a gratitude too sacred for triiling. It is a monument to the munificence of th.*1 grateful people and its hundreds of employes should be minister- of mercy, not stock gamblers. That the place tlins hallowed should have been used fur -lock jobbing or -peculation; converted into spawning place for co-operations and a stall for bartering doubtful patents, is a reflection upon our government, a degradation of public service, which we think (annot be too strongly condemned. If the real and sensitive demand- of the occasion be measured by the example of the forbearing Na/aren*1, who scourged from the temple the merchants ;ind money changers, or by the commendable conduct of President Arthur in removing the associate justice of the Arizona supreme court for borrowing money of an attorney practicing before him, congress must agr*1*1 with us that there -houid be a betterment of lie public service by a house-c.eaning in the pension bureau. As the majority of the committee intend to pursue the investigation further at the next session of emigre-- their report will not be complet' d until that time.___ VIOLATED THE CIVIL SERVICE LAW. Two Virginian* Indicted for solo ating Funds to He I’sed for Political fur-poses* Wa shin*.ton, Od. I. -The first indictment found under the law prohibiting the collection of campaign assessments was returned by the grand jury of the district court Monday. Charles a Newton, president of the Old Dominion Republican League of the District of Columbia, sent a circular to the employes of the government from that state asking them to contribute toward-the election of tin* republican ticket. The matter was brought to the attention of tile civil service commission, and it was decided to te-t til*1 matter rn the courts. The indictment, stripped of legal verbiage, charged that Mr. Newton, on September 27.    18S'J, solicit*1*! from Margaret Bingley, a clerk in tin* bureau of education, a contribution tor the purpose of aiding the election oi certain candidates of the republican party in the state of Virginia; that he solicited from Panins P.

THINKS BLAINE THE GREATEST FORCE Ft-Annist ant Postmaster Gene nil Clarkson K\presses Himself on the Tariff Dill. Chicago, Oct. I. —Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson, in an interview in a local paper this evening, speaking of tile tarilT bill, said he is pleased with it as a whole. Ile does not favor the sugar and tin plate schedules as passed. Reciprocity he looks upon as “protection’s option on fro*1 trade.” When asked if he thought Mr. Blaine would be an aggressive candidate for He* presidency in WU, he said:    "I    do    not.    The    man doesn't live who would refuse a presidential nomination, anti were Mr. Blaine to I be tendered it he would accept. But be will not tight for it. Mr. Blaine I look upon as the greatest force in the world to-dav.” He Refuses to Sign Bills for Payment of Criminal Abstracts. Democrats Trying to Make Capitol Out of the Matter—A Slick Sharper I infer Arrent at Council Ulutfs — Cremation of a Stallion. fSpecial to The Hawk-Eye.J Dr - Mot NI-, Oct. 1.—There is considerable discussion pro and eon by the local papers concerning a serious disagreement between Governor Buies and three other members of the stat*1 executive council and the attorney general on the subject of paying for th** printing of certain abstracts in criminal case-, which have been appealed to the supreme court. The matter has been under discussion for several months, hut no decision was arrived at until now. Among the hills under discussion is one for '-177 for an amended abstract of the famous Billings case. It has been th** practice of the stat** heretofore to pay these matters and the attorney general decides it is entirely legal to do so ami part of the executive council's busings to provide for them. But the present governor thought differ-ent aud withheld his signature. The bills, however, will be paid on the certificates of tho secretary of state, tie* auditor and tho treasurer. The democratic papers ar* ertdeav >r big to make capital out of the governor’s refusal to -ign the -ame. This is falling as fiat as other schemes. Hisdisapproval doesn’t stop any leak, or change the charge- in any way. His idea is that the counties should pay. which is against the universal custom of th** last thirty year-that such charge- should be paid out of th** state treasury. It is simply a < ase whether the money shall come out of tit** right or loft hand pockets of the taxpayers. Aldrich collection at th*1 state library. One is a two dollar bank note of the Iowa Stat** bank. whose money was all superseded by greenbacks and was r**-deemed and destroyed in I BAD. The note was loaned to Mr. Aldrich by Major Hoyt Sherman, who was cashier of this branch of the bank, while F. IL West was president. Very few specimens of { this money are in existence and Major Sherman secured this by accident. The oth**r addition is an old map of Des Moines made in 1851. It was obtained from G. Ii.

I. — Premier Crispi'- at-publi-hed by the Pails form of an interview, although ii- gemini* -- i- denied by -oui** Italian papers, is attracting much attention throughout E rope. Many well-informed m<*n here believe it contains a hint of the policy that will be adopted I»y the triple alliance toward Franc**. HL reference to the fear of France entertained by all Europe is regarded a-an effort to place upon that country the responsibility for the enormous armaments which weigh so heavily on th** people and an indication that a formal demand for disarmanent will b* mad**. No such demand could be acceded to by Franc**, and th** making of it would be a threat that would in all probability be followed by stronger measures. It is curious to note in connection with tin? pronouncement of Signor Ciispi that both Italy and Germany continue their military preparations with almost feveri-h activity.
