April Joseph E Commissioner of testified before the telephone investigating committee to-day. fie said he came into the Pan-Electric Company as one of original six stockholders upon the invita- tion of Senator Harris. He did not know of any sales of stock except by Dr. Rogers. The company had opposed the sale of stock until the valuations of its inventions had been determined. The question of official influence in procuring legislation for the Pan-EIe-.tric Company or in bringing suit to annul the Bell were never men- tioned in Lhe presence of witness. When asked if he had recommended tho appoint- ment of Dr. Rogers Lo a position under the Gen. Johnston replied that he had learned that hia name was attached to a recommendation of Dr. but that he was surprised at it Because the recom- mendation was for an assistant attorney's position and he had known that Dr. Rogers was a lawyer. Gen Johnston stated that when the recommendation of Dr. Rogers was presented to him he supposed was for a French but it lurucil out to be a recommendation for aa appoint- to u judicial position. Whtn witness went into the Tau-KlecLric Company hu understood that he waseimply to be one of a number of gentlemen who were to de- velop some electric that those who were entering the ompauy were to do aa much for Dr. Rogers as he did for them. Mr. Kanney cross-examined Gen. John- ston at length concerning the eftortd made by the Pan-Klectric Company Lo sell out to or consolidate with the Bell Company. Gen. Johnston understood tbe propositions made by the Pan-Electric Company were for an ivliance with Die Bell Company by which ihe former were to receive a royalty from the latter for iU transmitter.

April most ont- under tho Ihe most story that has gone out of Washington is that lie about a quarrel be- tween the President and Secretary Man- which alleged it was as- is tbe cause of the lalter's illnrss. The story is HO improbable on its face that the friends of Mr. Manning did not consider it worthy denial. Now that it has been given respectful standing by sober discus- sion of the outside it is summarily sat upon by every member of the Cabinet present ut the referred and stamped into the mud whence it sprang by the President himself. There was never the slightest foundation in fact for the which seems to have been de- liberately nnd systematically put ont'to embarrass aud torture those concerned- Had Mr Manning it might have beon made to stick in his but now that lie is getting the story itself will be permanently buried. Close of tho Investigation. April Senatorial committee appointed to investigate the election of Senators in Hamilton county u'nisbed its labors by making part of its record a certified copy of tbe tally sheet and poll book of Precinct Fourth and by the examination of Michael police inspector.

TDK CIUSIS AVERTED. and Cabinet All .lUght Agtun Satisfied. Los April sensitive barom- eter of public feeling indicates that matters are progressing more smoothly io the cabi- net thau they were a few days ago. The crisis is believed to have been averted by concessions on Mr. Gladstone's part in respect to tho e x fee n t to w h i ch the Dublin legislature shall con- trol tho fiscal affairs of Sorus assert that by first claiming almost imperial powers for the Irish Par- liament and others conceding a number of points totbestrongoppesition developed in his cabinet and party. Mr. Gladstone has obtniaed more complete home rule than he could have induced the cabinet to consent to by any other method of broach- ing the proposition. It is reported to-uiirht that Mr. atone lias informed Mr. Parnell of the substance of tho loading features of his Irish scheme and that the latter expressed hia approval of tlic proposals ia the main. It is understood that his entire approval is snbject only to a alight modification of detort- which will in no way eftect the purpose or alter the scope of the measure.

General Logan was selected as the orator of the and the Secretary of the Navy promised to detail a man-of-war to fire salutes at Riverside. When these facts were published they created a general feel- ing interest in Grand Army and in response to numerous letters and sugges- tions on the snbject it was decided to make it a national affair. So far as now arranged services of the day will include the oraBion by General prayer hy the Rev. R. S. D.

April some unimportant routine Mr. Hawley took tlie floor and spoke in support- of the anmy efficiency bill. He ridiculed the suggestion that the regular army might be dispensed with. Tho Senator j'rnm Mr. Haw ley had en- deavored to the impression that he would use the federal army to interfere with the will of the people.
