Special to the Indianapolis journal. Washington feb. 12.�?senator Payne came near getting a woman s fingers in the thin hirsute covering of state manic head to Day. Before the committee on education and labor there was a hearing of the National woman s Industrial league of which committee Payne is a member. Mrs. Charlotte Smith president of the league and a somewhat fractious and frequently excited woman was testifying when the venerable senator entered the committee room. Mrs. Smith was protesting against what she termed the a a practice of some women who were not ladies a a unduly influencing their Way into departmental positions. She was insisting upon giving names too when or. Payne who remembered one col. S. H. Donavi n who gave names exclaimed a i object to this. You had better go somewhere else. A insist that this woman be called to order. I won t be dictated to. This is Ashe uttered these words senator Payne looked a barrel of daggers at mrs. Smith. There was a Ripple of excitement in the room. The antiquated statesman readjusted spectacles and mrs. Smith flew into a passion. Those in the room expected to see her Fly into the senator s hair but before she could act chairman Blair very emphatically admonished her that the committee would not be the vehicle of defamation that if she had evidence the committee would hear it but no characters should be blackened. It took some time to restore order. Mrs. Smith excitedly declared that she could give proof and she undertook to mention some chief Elerk who had promoted a female department clerk through favouritism and spoke of the immoral character of the female clerk. She was again stopped and admonished that there no blackening of character. _ _ the Doc Ament rooms. A. Contrast that makes a bad showing for the democratic House. Special to the Indianapolis journal. Washington feb. 12.�?there is a Good Deal of complaint being made by members of the House about the Way the document room of their Branch of Congress is kept. Everything is in disorder and confusion they say and Only political favors have been observed in selecting new men to take charge of it. The document and folding rooms of the House of representatives have been filled with new men every two years As Long As the oldest statesman can remember. No one has been retained in either Ulace who could keep run of affairs and the Onse Quonce is no one is there who knows any a icing about the documents of past congresses. In the Senate the superintendent of the Docu rent room has held the position for Many years and he can instantly recall the Date of any old documents and Lay hands upon them. Senators find invaluable in preparing information upon Tho various subjects they Are called upon to Deal with. Or. Arnzil Smith the superintendent is a regular encyclopedia of congressional information. He can upon Short notice Supply any testimony taken before congressional committees for decades Back and knows All about the car loads of documents stored in the capacious rooms Over which he presides. Ail this information he has accumulated by being retained in position through successive congresses. The members of the House know this and the confusion in their own document room and the Folly of the May changes that Are constantly made is forcibly impressed upon them and they Are growling about it. The rebel Panorama. Mittee printed sheets containing in Brief objections to the passage of any International copyright Bill he avowed himself one of the american pirates and said he had the Black Flag flying. Incidentally but with emphasis recharged that the cyclopedia Britannica a reprint of which be was the publisher was imported at less than its lawful duty and this was done under a false ruling of the Treasury which had been obtained fora consideration. If he dared he would mention names. He suggested a reference to a report of special agents Dutton and Williams which he said was suppressed because it implicated every importer of books in the United states in irregular practices. They were All trembling in their boots because of the disclosures he was to make. Or. Dana Estes of Boston replied briefly to or. Sherman who he said was the publisher of a reprint of the cyclopedia Britannica.

Major Hopkins who is in command of kit Carson Post in speaking of this matter to Day said that such a representation was very inappropriate in the capital of a nation. A nation s victories in Battle were the proud heritage of succeeding generations but to dwell upon its defeats to represent to children the humiliation of their ancestors was a spectacle that few nations would tolerate. A representation of a he Battle of wat Torlao in Paris would not be allowed for one instant besides to the night now t hat the disposition was not to glorify the Eon federate part in the great civil contest but to pass it by As a mistake and to rejoice in a United country. _ International copyright.

When Bottom is reached it will be ascertained for the first time whether that portion of the mine is filled with debris. If it is there will be no other Way but to clean out the gangways. Asked if he had any idea of finding any of the Twenty six men alive the superintendent said a ooh no those men Are dead Long ago we Only put Down this pipe to satisfy the relatives of the poor unfortunates. I would be Only too glad if the men were alive but under the circumstances the drilling of a Hole is Only a useless National Kle Etrie Light association.

Declaring they have been snubbed by the administration no legislation probable. Special to i in Adelphia times. It is generally conceded by anti Silver people Here that there will be no legislation suspending the coinage of the Silver Dollar this session or in fact this Congress Aud there does not seem to be the same concern among the advocates of suspension that there was at the opening of the session. It has come to be a prevailing opinion among financiers that the moneyed and business interests of the country for the present at least a cannot suffer by a failure to suspend the coinage of Silver. A prominent banker Here who has studied the financial situation thoroughly said to Day that the Silver scare is Over. The financial Public he continued has at last discovered that As Long As the balance of Trade is in our favor there is no danger of any Large Export of Gold. Notwithstanding our diminished exports of wheat and the lower prices we receive for agricultural products this balance of Trade is still in our favor and has been since the coinage of the Silver Dollar in 1878. During the eight years which have since elapsed we have increased our store of Gold from less than two Hundred millions of dollars to Over six Hundred millions of dollars while on the other hand we have exported More 8ilverthau we have imported. While this state of things lasts he argues it is Idle to talk about getting on a Silver basis. As already stated it is generally conceded by those who favor suspension that it is Idle to expect it from this Congress and in the present condition of things there will be probably not any further agitation of the question from them. Strange to say the principal agitation comes from the Silver men themselves who have everything their own Way and have nothing to fear from the influence of a Gold bugs in Congress. Their Only policy is regarded As a very simple one to do nothing. The Law is All on their Side and no one supposes that the policy of the administration can be changed. Yet these Silver advocates in Congress Are doing More just now than any other class of persons to keep the Public agitated on this question. They have just now a fresh grievance against the administration in the reply of Secretary Manning which was agreed Apon in the last Cabinet meeting to the Resolution of the House of representatives calling upon the Secretary of the Treasury for reasons in not putting More Silve dollars into circulation and for the Silver policy of the administration. This reply simply directs Tho House to the message of the president and the report of the Secretary of the Treasury on the subject and is in perfect Accord with the presi dents settled purpose to interfere As Little of possible in congressional matters to fully make known Bis views on Public questions in hts annual messages and then go Way and let Congress do the same. Yet it is regarded by the Silver people of a snub from the administration nod they Are very bitter in their denunciations. They have joined hands with tha anti civil service reformers in ail sorts of schemes against the president to prevent re election if he has such aspirations. They charge that administration is run in the interest of new yorker and moneyed people in the East that even office which should by controlled by the South and 15 est Are Given to persons in the East or influenced by Eastern interests. This combination of Silver advocates and civil service foreheads is pushing a Resolution providing for a constitutional amendment to Ranke Tho presidential and vice presidential offices elective by the popular vote which they say they bops to have passed through Congress in time to be ratified by three fourths of the states before the next presidential election. This Thev claim would give the presidency to the South or West and take from new York the balance of Powei which that state holds under the present system. At All events the moneyed interests would be less Likely to dictate the nomination and a Man would be secured who would be More Likely to represent the views of the masses of the people. The clearer headed people do not think that such a Radical change in our governmental system As that contemplated is at All practicable during this Congress. They say that such a change can Only be accomplished after an overwhelming popular demand for it which at this time is entirely absent in the meantime tha Silver question and civil service Reform will afford fruitful topics for Long winded speeches by these agitators in Congress whenever they can get a Chance to make them. Gen. Lew Wallace. He talks of the teachings and results of the War. Speech before the Loyal legion. A living is learning a and it is so with All of is. Twenty five years ago a fearful schoolmaster opened up a school in this country and taught some terrible lessons the lessons of War. His curriculum consisted of killing How to kill and How to kill the most people and it ought to have been sufficient. This terrible schoolmaster opened Bis school in America and had a number of pupils and he taught Usa great Many lessons individually and collectively to society to Trade and to the state and nation. The first lesson he taught us was this a this country does no to want any More applause we have sees enough of that and As soldiers i Appeal the you to night is there in this great Assembly of soldiers any who will hold up their hands and suy they want to see War again ones of a no Are there ten Are there five is there Nef cries of Well if you please now to will take up the second lesson. Will there again be another War i know there Are plenty of Good people in this country who assert there will never be. I done to believe them As Long As a ship leaves our port under our Flag As Long As to have diplomatic relations with foreign governments i think we May reasonably anticipate the possibility of another War. Well then what is our situation War can Only be avoided by preparation for War. Only a few months ago Germany and Spain had a dispute Over a Little Island in a far off sea and if the worst came to the worse Bismarck was ready to dispatch a Fleet to Cuba. Cuba controls the key of our Commerce from the North to the South. It is useless to say we could have sat by and not done anything. What could we have done Are we prepared no could All tha armies of the North and South have defended our coasts no. Our government ought to have the right to have a Bette definition of what treason is. It cannot now defend itself until the overt net has been committed. Mormonism is rampant in the West and is ready to t the up arms against the government if they do what could is do to defeat such an uprising they have n knowledge of the water places and the Mountain fastnesses and if now a half dozen apaches can out fight the regiments of regulars in the West what would we do to save ourselves from the sixteen thousand armed mormons the truest most certain and Best Way to maintain peace i assert again is to be prepared for War. There Isa weak spot in our Constitution and that is our definition of the term treason. Morinon-i8m is a treasonable organization. It is Only biding its time. It is waiting until the proper Loar arrives and it will present a unified front to us and yet the government can Only Appeal to them by moral suasion. Is that really the Way to contemplate War the weakest spot in our government and everything has its weakest spot is its definition of treason a Man May defend property and not the government of the United states enact a proper Law to take care of itself that is a lesson that comes to us by the War. The War freed for millions of slaves enfranchised them and you and i and All of us voted affirmatively to make them citizens. Done to you know and i know that the reason we consented to it was with the expectation that some one would take these four millions of poor forlorn people and educate them. Has it been dons that is another lesson taught us by the War of which we have failed to profit How Long is this to continue when is this present policy to cease who should educate these people not the states of no if you depend on the states to educate them they will never be educated. Our duty a now to use our individual influence to bring this end about and we should use All our influence to have the Congress of the United states do its Daty with respect to these people. As you love your country companions and friends take up these Points and see if the lessons taught us by this terrible schoolmaster in the Days of Long past Are to be forgotten. Why Young men Are invited ont. New York gossip. A Young Bachelor of my acquaintance who has More invitations than he knows what to do with said to a lady the other Day that he thought he must be a very popular fellow or lie would not be invited out so much. A not at All a she replied a that does not follow. Young men Are so scarce nowadays that one who is willing to accept invitations has to do duty for three or since that time this Young gentleman has not accepted so Many invitations feeling that he is invited to fill in rather than on account of personal charms. It is becoming More the fashion every year to entertain and it is becoming More distasteful every year for men to be entertained. So i Don t know what society is going to do. Now that Brown is dead there is no one to carry on business of supplying Young men for parties and the Bureau established by the world for this purpose having become a thing of the past i am afraid that society is going to the Doga the railway times says were 10,000 Miles of Road to to built every year the work of construction would not be overdone despite All assertions to the cont very. What is needed to protect such railway expansion is better railway management some sort of governmental supervision an honest regard for the richts of shippers and in general an honest administration of railway affairs. When we can have these conditions complied with a mileage of 10,000 Milea per Annam can be constructed and fair dividends paid upon the traffic. Steamship news. New York. Feb. 13�?arrived st.
