LONDON, April 8.-The London press I, unanimous in bitter denunciation of the in- gratitude displayed by Em in Pasha in enter- ing the service of Germany and organizing an expedition to return to the equatorial province he formerly governed. Though great stress is laid upon his nullification of the work done by Stanley in rescuing Emin from his perilous position and conducting h.in in safety to the seaboard, it is quite ob vious that the inspiration of tlie is born of alarm at the prospect of German in terference with English interests in Africa and that if these interests wero not menacet Ainni might go whither he pleased withou theisligln-ost objection on the part of any body in England. It Is perfectly well known that Emm has for some time past been de- sirous to return to his province, and it is equally nell understood that he has never forgiven Stanley for "rescuing" him, or to put it plainer, for mnkiiiK his desertion of post and journey to Bagnmoyo a matter compulsion.

The two were fast friends. Yester- day morning they started for the woods to ce shooting, and just as Padman's turn came to use the revolver a rat ran out from under a log and Strickland called to Padrnan to flre at it.

Lieut inann, however, the dispatch says, is suffer- ing from a slight wound. speeches were made declaring thnt the r the national party issues and denouncing constitutional provision disfranchising the Mormon. The reason for disfranchising h raid, was that the Idaho Mormons voted th Democratic ticket. He criticised the anti- Mormon provision most, strenuously on the {round that it did not require conviction as precedent to disqualification. Mr. Dtiboii of Idaho made a strong appeal ior the passage of the bill. He said he trust- ed that no partisanship would influence the judgment of members in this matter. Par- tisanship had been ignored in the territory. He said the minority of the committee was anxious to upon the new state the hardship of having bigamists and polygam- ists among her voters. Give Idaho state- hood, under hor constitution, he said, and Mormon question would soon lie nn issue of the past. Mr. Smith of Arizona criticised the com- mittee on territories for failure to report a bill fur thp aiimis-sion of Arizona. That ter- ritory, Le said, had every qualification for statehood possessed by Montana, Dakota or Washington, hut the bill for her admission had been smotheied in committee, because she bad seen fit to send a Democrat to congress. i -Mr rhipimm of Michigan, while favoring the admission of all the territories, criticised the proposed constitution of Idaho as an in- vasion of mcred individual and religions rights.

Mr. Gray (representing the minority of the committee on privileges and elections) made a statement in support of the claim that Messrs. Clark and Maginniss are entitled to be seated as senators from Montana. He commented upouthefindiiiKof the canvassing board of Montana which declares that no ab- stract of voters had lieen received from Silver Bow county; that they had "exhaustel th. authority given to them by the .statute m en- deavoring to obtain it; and it, therefore be. came their duty to ascertain and deolu red it "from the best sources of informatlo obtain- able" and he argued that the mm assp-rs had no authority to act on any information ob- tained from any source othei than the elec- tion of officers of the county, declaring that he had never known such a bold and flagrant act of usurpation and that the members of the canvassing board of Montana (the governor, chief justice and secre- tary of the territory) should have been whipped at the cart-tail in every country town in the territority. The title to a yel- low dog. he said, should not be decided in such a statement; much less the title to a seat in the United States senate. Mr. Gray yielded the floor, without con- cluding his argument, and Mr. Evarts of- fered a resolution declaring that the senate had heard with deep sensibility the announce- ment of the death of Hon.
