Indianapolis Indiana State Sentinel (Newspaper) - June 28, 1882, Indianapolis, Indiana yol. Xxx. No. 21.indianapolis, wednesday vie 28, 1882. Whole no. 1623 Washington. The adjournment of Cong areas Keally not fixed upon. Washington june 2g.�?although the House adopted or. Kelley s joint resold Ion fixing july 10 As the Day of adjournment there is neck stanly no Day fixed upon which Congress will adjourn. The Senate must agree to the join Resolution and even then there is no Assurance that the adjournment will be made on the Day stated As this is the third time the adjourn ment has been fixed upon at this session Quot and the Resolution of yesterday is nothing More than a substitute. On december 19 a Resolution was passed Nam Fig May 22, 1ss2, As the Day for adjournment. On april 24 another Resolution concurring in the first was passed and now comes the Jast Oue. Many members have sad that they cannot see How a Day for adjournment be set until All the approx Ria on Bills Are passed by both it Anches of Congress As there is so much business to dispose of in the meantime that everything is now at sea. It is not believed that the Senate will take action on the Kel Ley Resolution until certain measures a which will occupy considerable time Are disposed of. So while a Day has been designated there is no Especial reason to believe that Congress will adjourn july 10. Workmen have been Busy in tie Senate chamber to Day completing the laying of carpets and arranging for the comport of the senators during the heated term which fact does not argue an adjournment very soon nor augur a concurrence in the joint Resolution passed by the House yesterday. Expenses in contested elections. A report has been made by the election committee of the House of the claims filed in contested elections before the committee which have not been referred to the proper committee. When claims for allowance of expenses Are filed before the elections a Ommittee they Are in the form of accounts with the United states and go to the committee on accounts until the Congress from which they arose expires when they Are again referred from the committee on elections to the committee on claims and assume the form of claims. When the committee on accounts or claims pass upon the accounts or claims the Yare reported to the House from Clience Tovey go to the coi Smittee on appropriations for final action incorporation in appropriations. The report just made by the committee on elections refers Only to those going to the committee on claims they All growing out of former congresses As follows from the Fortieth Congress one claim forty first two forty second one forty third three forty fourth three forty fifth eight for to sixth Congress three claims making in All Twenty one claims aggie. Rating $g7,g9 j.g7. These Are the old doubtful cases. There is no telling How Many thousands of dollars have been allowed As current accounts on other cases growing out of these congresses. The ones mentioned Are simply the unsettled balances. In the report of the committee on elections is this paragraph Quot Hon. Geroge w. Julian amount of claim $3,054. This claim arose in the forty first Congress in a contest with John s. Reid. It is claimed that nothing was allowed on account of expenses and that under the practice and rules of the House a sum should be allowed on account of expenses incurred in that contest commensurate with the amount expended. The committee on elections from the meager investigation made believe there ought to be made an allowance in full for All such expenditures and recommend $2,000 be allowed said George w. Julian in full payment of such expenses Quot this is merely the recommendation of the committee on elections to the committee on claims and is not a final decision on the Julian claim but it a More than Likely the amount recommended will be reported by the latter <3ommittee. Another item in the report of interest to Indiana Quot James Mccabe amount of claim $500,&Quot of which the report says the committee on elections of the forty sixth Congress recommended the allowance of $500, but it appears the same was not paid. Of the John Enos Nefy claim of which these dispatches have heretofore spoken the committee on elections in asking reference to the committee on claims says Quot claim is for expenses of contest $3,348.50, and for salary from March 4,1873, to december a 1873, the Date when contest was determined. This arises out of contest of John p. C. Shanks is. John e. I eff for seat from ninth Indiana District in forty third Congress. In this Case the awarded to it will be remembered that this contest a was held during the salary grab year and or. Befits salary would reach about $6,000 for the fractional year which increases the claim to about $9,300. What the committee on claims will recommend and when the report containing the recommendation will be rendered Are uncertainties beyond anticipation. Be publican i legislation in favor of capital. That class of individuals who favor the abolition of National Banks and the payment of the government debt will not find any Consolation in the Litte Rances of Republican represent tires during the debate on or. Kelley s Bill revising the revenues. Several times to Cese members have stated bit the revenues derived from the Revenue taxes Are growing so enormously Large that our surplus in the Treasury is becoming almost alarmingly corpulent and it is believed that the beat Way to distribute this surplus is by the abolition and revision or certain Revenue taxes. Green backers declared that this surins aboard be applied to the payment of in Public debt which throws the Republic a flies Back on the Protection of the National binks by replying Quot we can not pay the Sablic debt without decreasing the amount outstanding Bonds and contracting the Pital of National a the mediocrity will scarcely get any com fort either out of the Republican proportion to abolish taxation of Money on delimit and the capital of National Banks a a rumination in favor of capital the argue Iino it being that if Yon want favor in Leeis a Tion Yon must have your Money under a of a tonal Bank charter. The proposition to Llali plish the Stamps on Bank checks does not Ini let with much opposition. No Loans making a political Job of the bluer and Harbor Bill. Benall the amendments to the River i Harbor Bill Are submitted in the Senate in be one of the most Complete Pyramid Moi ments of robbery the country has seen. The fact of there being about t,000,000 surplus in the Treasury Senius to prey upon the honesty and sensibilities of the republicans and if the i resent Congress had not brought to the sur Ace every contriva��8 that ingenuity and desperation can conceive of to filch the Treasury there is no such thing As robbery. The amendment now increases the appropriations to near $23,000,000, and they Are coming in very rapidly. It is directly charged that the republicans propose to Load on enough jobs in the shape of Small appropriations for insignificant Rivers canals etc., to carry the doubtful districts to thus indirectly help themselves to office via the Treasury. It is calculated to carry through these jobs by attaching them to the meritorious appropriations. There is Merit in about $7,000,000 of the appropriations those relating to the Mississippi and her tributaries but there a Clear slide of jobs in those that will consume probably this much More of the total amount. The democrats of the House have discovered the scheme of the republicans in tacking on these Little riders and the amendments will be refused by them. Leaking the end. Guinean at Liast seriously considers his cases a Short respite asked a heed s Liast Slove. Washington june 21.�?Guiteau was re ported by the jail officials to Day As unusually serious and uncommunicative. No person was permitted to see him but his spiritual adviser who spent several hours with him. One of the officers remarked Quot he has an anxious Haggard look. I think he begins to realize that he is Warden Crooker stated the execution would be a private one and Only a few members of the press and jail officials will be permitted to witness it. The Gallows was erected some Days ago in the East corridor of the North Wing. Miss Chevallier of Boston Secretary of the National society for the Protection of the insane had a Short interview Frith the president yesterday in reference to Guitrau s Case and arranged for an audience with the president to Morrow when or. George m. Beard and others will Advance arguments in favor of a Short respite in order to allow a proper commission Opportunity to fully investigate the question of Guiteau s insanity.

These letters he proposes to file with the president when he makes his application for a commutation of the sentence. Rev. Lar. Hicks says Guiteau will never repent this Side of the grave. _ a delegation Quot Waits upon the president urging him to Grant a respite. Washington june 22.�?miss Chevallier of Boston Secretary of the National society for the Protection of the insane accompanied by or. George m. Beard of new York or. W. W. Gottling superintendent of the government Hospital for the insane and Rev. W. W. Hicks pastor of the Tabernacle and who is now acting As Guiteau s spiritual adviser had an interview with the president this afternoon by special appointment and presented a petition praying for a reprieve in the Case of Guiteau and for the creation of a scientific commission to determine upon the sanity or insanity of the condemned Man. The petition is signed by a number of medical experts who state their conviction that Guiteau is insane and urge the propriety of such commission. The committee Are now at 2 p. M., with the president who was not Able to receive them until a few minutes before 2. They waited in the president s Library from about noon. Drs. Beard Quot end Golding advanced arguments in support of the petition. One of the Points made by or. Beard was that Guiteau really had no trial the so called trial being merely an exhibition. He said it was the strongest Case of insanity Ever before a court and was lost Only through the in competency of Seoville which was As phenomenal As the insanity of his client. The president listened patiently and taking the papers said they would be considered. They will be referred to the attorney general for report. All other papers previously received bearing on this Case have been similarly referred. A Gnit Oati will hang on june 30, according to programme executive clemency refused. Washington june 24.�?the Cabinet has decided not to interfere with the sentence of Guiteau and the attorney general this morning instructed the marshal of the District and the Warden of the jail to keep the prisoner a close confinement and allow no one to see him except his spiritual advisers his physicians and officers of the jail. The attorney general to whom All the appeals and petitions presented to the president bearing on the Guiteau Case had been referred submitted an elaborate report to the Cabinet last evening reviewing All the Points presented in favor of a respite on the ground that the sanity of the prisoner had not been fully established at the trial. The report was generally discussed and unanimously approved by the Cabinet All the members of which were present. An understanding was reached that nothing should be disclosed As to the decision of the Cabinet until after it should be made a town to the prisoner. Kev. Or. Hicks called upon the attorney general this morning by appointment and was informed that the Cabinet had decided not to interfere with the execution of Guiteau s sentence. Hicks thereupon drove to the District jail and in formed Guiteau of the decision. Guiteau has sent the following message to his spiritual adviser Quot Rev. Or. Hicks Quot go and see Arthur and shake your fist in his face. Tell him i made him president by my inspiration and he must give me an unconditional Pardon and if he does not god almighty will blast him forever. I Tell you. Brother Hicks 1 am god s Man and god takes care of his friends of the condemned Man still profess Hope. Reed says he does not despair and he will make another Appeal to the president at the earliest Opportunity. Or. Beard left Here for new York last a vening but is expected to return. Miss Chevallier will have a conference with or. Gooding and Rev or. Hicks this evening to determine upon their future action with a View to obtaining stay of the execution. Guiteau said this morning to the guard at his cell door that he was prepared to go and would just As leave be Hung to Day As to wait till Friday. At Tbs time the news of the Adverse decision on the petition for a respite had not reached the jail but he did not seem to be in any Way interested in the result. Rev. Or. Hicks called about 11 30 and remained an hour. He informed Guiteau of the result of the a fibres in his behalf. This announcement did not seem to have a depressing effect upon him and he talked As cheerfully As Ever. He expressed some feeling because the president had referred the subject of his respite to the attorney general saying president Arthur should have taken the responsibility himself that he the prisoner had not appealed to the Cabinet Dut to the president and As his act had made Nim such it was the least the president could do to respite him for a Short those till the Case could be heard in the supreme court of the United states. He then repeated that be was god s Man and was in god s hands. Or. Hicks who will be at his Side when he is hanged said he would die for his inspiration feeling that god worm justify him in the other world. He had now no personal interest in the matter but he Felt for the nation which would suffer in the event of his being hanged. The windows on the West Side of the South Wing of the jail in which Guiteau s cell is located has been curtained to shut out the Light. This morn in the rope which is to be used m the execution was put up for the Occam Lou.

M., june 30,1882. Bev. Or. Hicks protests against the be Moval of Guiteau a the death warrant signed. Washington june 26.�?the Star publishes the following Quot Lleve or. Hicks of the Tabernacle prefaced his Sermon by asking the prayers of his congregation for . J. Guiteau who i believe be hanged next Friday. Pray that his mind May be spiritually and truly illuminated that god May have mercy upon Liim the doctor added that he desired Here and now to enter his solemn and Earnest protest against the blood thirsty vindictive fiendish spirit that Senius to have taken Possession of so Large a portion of the people of the Cou Witry. He denounced this almost National clamor for Guiteau s blood As being not Only unchristian but heathenism and inhuman. It is murder Niider the cover and Protection of the Law.

Guiteau has been indicted of felony and murder by him done and has been therefore arraigned and upon such arraignment has pleaded not guilty and has been lawfully convicted thereof and whereas judgment of said court has been Given that the said Charles j.

Witness d. K. Cake tar chief Justice of said court. Guiteau said to or. Hicks Quot do not go to president Arthur any More. Let him come to you. I have nothing More to ask of him. If he has irrevocably decided i Appeal to a higher court. God will judge Between him and three suspicious looking persons called at the jail last night. They were very anxious to be admitted. Or. O. Hathaway of Chicago writes miss Chevallier strongly approving her efforts to secure a reprieve. The Stab soul is. Fines against sub contractors a emitted and retained by Dorsey. Washington june 26.�?in the Star route trials to Day or. Ingersoll resumed the Cross examination of sub contractor Anthony Josysh. Several letters from the sub contractor to Dorsey were read. Nearly All were appeals to have the service increased to six trips per week. The weight of the mails is represented As excessive and the condition of the roads As extremely bad. He also complained he a i compelled to carry the accumulated mail of several other Snow bound routes without extra compensation. Pedro Jaramillo a mexican sub contractor testified he had made a contract with John w. Dorsey in the latter part of the year 1879, to carry the mail on the route from Ojo Caliente to Barrot City. Owing to the excessive weight of mail he had often failed to make trips on schedule time of fifty hours. Quot the Snow at times was up to his breast on portions of the route. His fines in one Quarter amounted to Over $400. For the Quarter ending june 1880, he had not received one cent for compensation. He paid �$500 to get a release from the contract. The court let me understand you. Did you carry the mail for nothing and pay $500 in addition witness yes sir. Totten objected. The evidence was irrelevant because these matters referred to a Turnpike business agreement Between John w. Dorsey and witness. Bliss replied he wished to show $1,600 of $25,000 fines imposed for the two last quarters of 1880 had been remitted by the department and that the sum remitted had been kept by Dorsey. After some further argument the court said inasmuch As the evidence might tend to show the expeditions ordered were Shams and the fines were remitted in the interest of the ring he would admit it. Or. Bliss read a number of orders for fines and remissions and a discussion sprang up As to the necessity for their introduction. Judge Wylie said Quot the indictment charges a number of contractors in the City of Washington banded together to secure unnecessary expedition on certain routes. That expedition was ordered and when shown to be impossible the sub contractor was forced into utter ruin and his fines subsequently remitted. If it be the Case that these men were in to have the expedition ordered Viherek impossible and have the loss thrown on the sub contractor then securing the remissions and pocketing them the papers Are Good evidence in Quot the Case. The necessity for Reading All these Loose papers does not however or. Ingersoll asserted nothing of the kind had yet been shown by the testimony. The court decided to admit Only those papers which were directly applicable to the route under discussion. Or. Bliss then read endorsements upon orders. Deep Snow Quot Quot no forage obtainable Quot Quot no Trail broken Quot Quot Stock gone out Quot were the reasons usually assigned for failure. Judge Wylie remarked that in his opinion All of the fines should have been remitted. He had Strong doubts As to the competency of this kind of evidence or whether it was necessary to spend time upon it. He thought the prosecution should go Back of orders and show expedition had been ordered by Brady knowing it to be impossible. He therefore decided the papers not competent evidence. Postmaster True of Animas City in his testimony said matters had somewhat improved for when a courier failed to come in the citizens clubbed together and employed men to go out and bring in the mail on adjournment.

It came in the Wake of a dense angry looking Black and Gray Cloud which moved sullenly from the northward Over the City. There was no wind nor rain at the Lake Shore but a dash of rain fell in some parts of the City and the wind blew fiercely South of town. Vessels parted their lines at the Mouth of the River piers and docks were submerged to the depth of four feet in some places hundreds of fish were cast ashore the fire was put out in the Lake Erie rolling Mill on the Beach West of the River a scow loaded with Sand lying at the break water was landed High and dry on the Shore a Short stretch of railway near the Union depot was ripped up numerous switch shanties and Small buildings were overturned or roved about.
