It required hard work to save the a grocery store of or. Mchenry s As also the k. Of p. Hall which caught fire several times but fortunately a a lined no heat Way. The office of or. Stansifer East of the burned a look was also in much danger. Flt veral times the Sparks ignited on the roof but was extinguished. The loss on the House however is considerable.

About two months ago attempt was made to Burn Saloon of Pote Szatkowski throwing Oil on the Side of building and making a fire with boxes. Fortunately it was discovered before a it in damage was done. A Compromise Between the House and Senate. In Case both houses can agree no committee is needed but As in the present Case in Washington when both hou.se.? have a separate Bill it is then necessary to select representatives from each House and have them agree if possible on Abili when it will be reported to both houses for a vote. This committee is a last resort toward Unity in both houses and should their Bill fail to satisfy a majority in the lower House and Senate the Bill is As Good As dead. This circumstance prevails at Washington at present. While the committee May agree upon a Bill there is not a majority in the Senate which will approve of their decisions. Conference committees Are not unlike All others they Are selected As a mediator and their boundaries cover that scope which May be necessary to bring Harmony to a majority of the voting houses. General Hunter who kindly gave us the above information served four terms in the u. S. Congress and retired from that Politi a Field with a record to be Roud of. He never served on a conference committee. He was elected from this District in 1867 by the counties of Monroe i Awrence Brown Bartholomew Jackson Jennings Jefferson and Switzerland. He again made the race in 1873 and served three successive terms retiring in 1879. In the last three terms he served his constituencies in Monroe Lawrence Green Sullivan Owen Clay Vigo Park and Vermillion. In 1880 the District was again changed and composed the counties of Monroe Owen Putnam Moi an Brown Bartholomew Johnson and Hendricks. The above counties at present compose the fifth Gressional District. Eony Cooper s Bill passes. Senate in favor of the taxation of greenbacks. An the by the committees. Were of ii general Morton c. Hunter on the Washington affair. Since the Jire ont Quot muddle Quot Between the lower House Senate and conference committee it might be of interest to our readers to under Easton having a hardware stand some of the proceedings of the so called conference committee. Knowing of no one better qualified than Cen. Morton c. Hunter t a give an insight to the of Congress the world s representative called on the general and was Given a Short but accurate history of the Compromise committees. The conf Irence committee members generally compos of of four teen men seven from the House and seven from the Senate Are selected by the speaker of the House and president of the Senate. Should the House have a democratic majority the part of the committee selected from that Branch would contain one More Democrat than Republican the same Rule is used in the Senate and should the republicans be in the majority the Rule is vice versa. The committees Are invariably selected from the older members no amateurs need look for a position of this kind. These Momiu Ittzes Are selected As new Salto fued.

A special to the Sentinel states that through the personal untiring a flirt of or. Cooper that the Bill was reported by the committee by one majority and passed the House alter bitter opposition. Senator Turpie took care of the Bill in the Senate and pulled it through successfully. In every Congress fur Twenty years Bills have been introduced to repeal the Law Wahidi exempted the taxation of i Een Hacks. Once it passed the Senate but went no further. If or. Cooper had not taken up this Bill and made it his own pet measure it would have slept in Springer s committee. It is estimated that tax it dodgers secure exemption to several million Dol Lars of taxable property in Indiana annually. As passed the Bill provides that circulating notes of National associations and United states Legal tender notes and other notes and certificates of the United states payable on demand and circulating or intend Fig to circulate an currency and Gold and Silver or other Coin shall be subject As Money on hand or on Deposit it a the Laws of any state or Terri tory.
