AN INVESTIGATION. THE HOUSE COMMITTEE'S INQUIRY INTO SILCOTT'S CASE. Suegoalod for the Distribution of Membern Du Not Propose to be Throujfli tlie ashler's ciity A Thing for the NO- Dec. 10 office of the ot the house waa busioged yesterday by notaries with notes given by members which had been allowed to go to protest. As the fee in each protest case is about the notaries did a thriving busi- ness. Mr. the baa detectives at Montreal and Quebec looking out for Cashier Sileott Mr. Leedom does not beliero tho story from Montreal that SU- cott and his mistress are at a prominent hotel there. He tbat if the story is Im detective at Montreal would havo re- ported the face. The investigating committee was ready for work shortly after 10 o'clock with SL-. Adams of Illinois iu tho chair. Several congrebsmen were before tho committee to suggest plans for the distribution of the n ton ty for salaries of members still remain- ing in the sergoant-iit-arms' office. Mr. Mills of Texas outlined a plan which he thought would be because of its lie held that as the loss had occurred In Nc- it should be borne by those members who hud receipted for their November pay. The remaining he should be distributed among all tho members who had receipted for the months from Mareb to No- and whose money Silcott had taken. Mr. Catch i tigs of Mississippi made a long in which be hiSd that tho sergeant-al- arms waa the authorised disbursing ofllcer ot tlie aud consequently the individual members should not be made to bear the losses caused by the action of who drvw the money from tbe treasury as the euthorJzied agent of tbo sergeant-at-arms. Mr. CatcMngs suid that if the government would pay to members their salary for No- ho has never been law- fully tbe whole trouble would bo bosuns tho theft was entirely out of tbe money for their salaries for that A member of the committee admitted that Catcbings' views had impressed the committee. Picktw of South Da- j Henderbou oC Riley of Penn- and several other members told tho committee about uiutteis connected with tbe defalcation. Several submitted pinna for Lo settlement of the question us to who bbnll the loss caused hy Silcott'a thuft. A najnrity thought that tbe sergeant-a t-nrras was the disbursing of tho and that tbe individual members should not bear tbo loss. Max Long of the coast testified he met Silcott on Saturday Nov. the night of bis and walked to tho Sixth street railroad station with him. Sil- cott told him bo was going to Now York on usiness. The report to tho house will be ready to bd submitted to-morrow. It has not boen decided whether tbe committee will favor any particular recommendations on the mestion as to authority given tho sergeant- at-arms to disburse mf ney for tho bouse. Most of the members of tho committee favor simply submitting the s.'iiient points in the arguments that have boon made on this qupsliou and leaving tho houso to decide where tbe lutavhall fall. Mr. Leedom hns written to the district at- placing the Hilcott case in his hands and requesting to have an indictment brought against the absent cashier. Mr. Leedom's legal adviser thinks thnt tho individual members of congress should not lose their silaries on account of tho element. Ho believes that the arms is a properly authorized disbursing of-H- but maintains thnt Mr. Lofdom's bonds- men cannot be held accountable for the their bond expired with the Fiftieth congress fur nhich it nas given. Mr. Loo- hr is willing to turn over tho that UP possesses t-boull It be decided that he is responsible for tho without the formality of n civil 'im- which Silcott paid into tho National Metro- politan in order to lake np tho forged which would bo sufllcient evidence to pxtiadito will probably bo tho cause of a suit. It is claimed that this money be- longs to he government aud suit will have to be entered to recover it. A CONSOLIDATION Between NuiiomH Unlnn nnil Knights Labor.
