What i* Ut-iiig Done by the National Republican Congressional Committee. \\ A-'HiNt. ion. Sept. g'.i.—'The national republican congressional committee is doing effective work. The confidence and zeal of the managers is growing daily, and the congressional committee, as a result, art* entering into such systematic work as has not been done since Hie ; time of Zachariah Chandler. It was a ; shrewd move of Chairman Belden, the j other day. to have a photographer come into the gallery of the house after th** democrats had absconded. The country will be treated to a picture of congress in session with the democratic side of tin* house empty, save one man, and the republican scats all lilied, with possibly half a dozen exceptions. The committee is circulating a large amount of literature. Maine was flooded with tariff and labor documents, and go,(too copies of Reed's record on tilt* rules was distributed in his district alone. A vast number of Dunnell's speech on the tariff and the farmer are being put out, and also of Gwen's speech on pensions. Senator MeMillian has ordered ten thousand copies of th** latter's speech to be distributed in Michigan. IOWA AGAIN HONORED. .John N. Irwin of Keokuk Niiiniimlr*! Uuv-eruor of Arizona.

Washington, I). C.. Sept. 29. The members of the house of representatives, are now leaving the city, sine** the tariff bill bas passed, and it is expected that there may be lack of a quorum even as early as to-morrow. It is not probable, however, that anybody will raise th** point of no quorum, since a majority of the absentees are democrats. There were onlv sixty-live democrats here a week ago and many have departed since that time. It is doubtful whether there are twentv-tive democratic members now in the city. They ar** hastening home to look after their political fences, and, while the republicans are equally anxious to get away, the responsibility for pending legislation will keep the most of them here until adjournment. Mr. Wade is the only Missouri republican who has gone home, and to-morrow afternoon the only Missouri democrat remaining in the city will bo Mr. Heard. Mr. Hatch, the other one now here, win leave for home to-morrow morning.

TerriUW* Wreck Caused l»y an Operator’s Carle^Hiiess. Zanesville. O., Sept. 29.—About one o'clock Sunday morning a most disastrous freight wreck occurred on the Baltimore and Ohio near Pleasant. Valley, a | ffiiurt distance west of this city. Orders j were given east and west bound freight.--to pass at Black Hand, but Operator Realty at, that place failed to deliver th** j order to th** eastbound train. Later Ie* saw hi" mistake and telegraphed the operator here that there would he a j wreck pretty soon, and left his post. He ! is a mere boy. Boah engines aud a number of cars lilied with oats, coke and merchandise were piled up in the greatest confusion. Eight men were killed, as follows: John Buckingham, engineer; William Firestone, fireman; Freeman Keller, brakeman: John Cochran, Ben Smart. Gratoit: Glen Bash, Zanesville; George W. Stoneburner. Zanesville; Tom McCrary, not found; one unknown. John Kemp, an engineer, had his ]ejz cut off and Fireman Wilson a hand smashed. Trains are running by th** way of the Pan-Handle between Zanesville and Newark. Those not employed on the train were beatingtheir way from Columbus. The trains met on a sharp curve, and the west-bound train had just emerged from a piece of woods, so that neither was checked in speed. The engines crashed together with awful force, aud the freight cars to the number of twenty-five were piled up to th** height of twenty-five or thirty feet. BIRCHALL WILL HANG. Verdict of the Jury in the Wood-stock Murder Case. The Closing Addresses and the .Judge's Charge to the .J iiry—Intense Interest iii t lie Case—Crowds of Curious Sightseers—Other Crimes. Woodstock, Out., Sept. 29.—At the resumption of th** Birt-liall murder trial this morning some evidence was taken preliminary to the speeches. Samuel Me-Master, telegraph messenger at Niagara Falls, proved th** delivery to Clerk O'Neill at the Imperial hotel of a telegram purporting to be from Benwell to Birehall. O’Neill wa" supposed to deliver th** message to Birchall James Costin, a farmer, testified that he "aw the body of Benwell when found. He came to the conclusion that the body bad not been out in the storm of two nights before, as th** shirt front of the dead man was as white and clean as though no rain or snow had fallen on it. Blackstock put in evidence the register of Hie Metropolitan hotel. New York. showing the names of J. IL Birchall aud wife, T Douglas, IL Felly aiel F. C. eyes. Though interviewing him has been absolutely prohibited, several people have been in to see him. Notwithstanding everything he remains serene and manifests no sign of apprehension. It is impossible to believe that he does not realize that his position is serious. Mrs. Birchall was in the jail visiting her husband. She is apprehensive of th** result and looks st) downhearted that it. is not too much to say she has almost given tip hope even of a disagreement of the jury. The crowds visiting the swamps where Benwell was found have increased, and are now simply enormous. Nearly every house has a chip or branch or wreath of leaves taken from tho spot, and some mementos, such as walking-sticks made of wo*k1 from the swamp, are in great, demand. KILLED HIS DAUGHTER.

This was all til** j evidence for th** defense and th** ad-dfesses of counsel were at once entered upon. During hi" conifers address the prisoner listened eatuly to a1! that wa" said. Blackstock. for the defense, spoke five hour". IL* reflected on the alleged reck-iessness of tile prosecution and the apparently careless manner in which th** witnesses for tin* crown seemed ready to swear away a man's life. His summing up of the evidence was very exhaustive, pointing out defect" in the evidence bearing on Birchall'" innocence, ana discussing til** moral character of ins client. IL* "aid he must admit an utter inability so point out an explanation of th** course observed by Birchall which would he c*>nsisteut with iii" innocence of dishonest purposes. The only explanation of Bir-chall's statements to Felly and Benwell inducing them to come out which Blackstone could offer was that Birchall expected to secure through them money to enable him to go into business aud make good his promises. Ile denounced the manner of conducting tile identification of til** prisoner as disgraceful and appealed to iii** jury to act only on th** <*\i-d» nee before them in making up their minds. The time would come when the mystery surrounding this crim** would be cleared away. He closed with a touching reference to devotion of Mrs. Birchall. offier closed th** case for tin* crown. IL* reviewed th** story in detail arid ana-lized Birchall " negotiations with Benwell into one fact,—the plan to entrap young Benwell to Canada on th** repre-sentations that he knew would be shown to be false the moment he arrived in Canada. The motive was to secure five hundred pound'. He «ietaiU*d Birchall’s dealing' Felly and said tile outcome of all this fraud and deception could be one tiling only and that was Blenheim 'wainp. Look at it all and as you read the correspondence read between lines and you will see there just the simple, awful word, “Murder.’’ The judge in his charge to the jury reviewed tin* many points in the case and at length. He pointed out the dif-ference between direct and circumsail- ’ tial evidence, showing that th** latter j when conclusive was far more reliable. He called attention to til** important fact that Birchall had th** key> to Benwell's baggage and reverted to th** letters I written bx the prisoner to Benwell’s father, lf the £500 wen* sent to the firm as requested in the letter any member of th** firm could claim it. The prisoner speaks of the purchase of anither piece of property and that Benwell would write by the next mail. What was th** object of these letters? Ail was a deception aud the prisoner must have known Benwell would never writ** such a letter to ids father. The condition of th** clothing on the body found, th** judge thought, disproved the theory of the defense that the murder was for plunder. It was significent that 1 every mark on the clothing had been removed and had it not been for the finding of til** cigar-holder Benwell's death would always have remained a mystery. The jury retired at 9:30 and returned at 11:30 with a verdict of guilty of murder in th** first degree. When asked if he had anything to say why sentence should not fie pu>>«**i upon him, Birt hall replied: ••Simply, that I am not guilty of tile murder." 'I ii** judge tin'n said:    “I    fully    concur with the verdict of the jury." and sentenced Birchall to hang on the 14th of November. IN T E11E ST IN THE f A ' E. Woodstock, Ont., Sept. 29.—The excitement created by the Birchall trial throughout Ontario has simply reached fever heat. That this interest is not confined to Hie province is proven by the fact that one cable agency has ordered a verbatim report of the speech of the counsel for the defense and the judge's charge, probably six hours’ rapid talking at leaffi. and also a full report of the. speech of the counsel for the crown. It is estimated that the report will cover at least 40,000 words, and every line of it will be cabled for the use of the English newspapers, making one of the largest dispatches ever cabled from this side. The intention is to have the last word of th** speeches telegraphed into English newspaper offices within fifteen minutes of its delivery here, lf tile present indications may be trusted, the crowd seeking admission to th** court room to-morrow will be ten times greater than ever before. Law yers have poured in from all surrounding cities and even from Montreal. Several officials have come to Woodstock in hopes of hearing the speeches. Blackstock, leading counsel for the defense, has the opportunity of his life, and if he does not surpass his previous brilliant record in addressing this jury his thousands of admiring friends will be much disappointed. Osier, chief counsel for the crown, is not what is usually an eloquent, man, but his power of grasping the strong points of a case and his forcible manner of statement give him the means of presenting the indictment against th** prisoner to the best advantage. Th** judge is all that a judge should be, impassioned and fair, but there are indications that he will charge rather against the prisoner. He may go point blank against him.
