Washinqton, Feb. 17.-The special committee on Paciflo railroads, after many hearings, thorough investigation and consideration, finally accepted the reports 61 Senator Erye on the Union Pacific, and'Senator Davis on the Central Pacific, and agreed to a bill which will be reported to the senate to-day. The report on the Union Pacific reabhee the following conclusion: That the policy oi building or acquiring branches was wise and thorough, the period covered by theii- inquiry honestly and economically carried out; that the main line has derived an immense advantage from branches, and that there is no foundation for the charge that the latter have received undue benefit from constructive mileage at the expense of the main line; that the building of the Oregon Short Line and subsequent acquirement of the Oregon Railway and Navigation company's lines, instead of being a menace to the interest of the government, have proved to be A Decided Advuntaitc. That the recent consolidation of kv-eral branches, under tho n. mo of the Oregon.Short.Lino and Utah Northern Railway company, simplifies the system of the Union Pacific, makes pos-sible a more effective and economical management, and in no regard eyiJences any pur|k>3e of evading the obligations to the .government. That the branches, instead of being maiutaiticd at tho expense of the main lino, contribute at least $3,000,000 a year to the treasury of j the company. That the improvements have been for several years past greater on the main line than on the branches, :K>me of them very important and expensive, like the splendid shops now in process of erection at Cheyenne, the fine station there ju^t completed, and the station and hotel at Ojjden That there i3 no evidence of any purpose on the part of the company to surrender that portion of their road, over which the government has a statutory. Hun, and on the contrary, every, reason tending to satisfy any candid person. that no such purpose exists. That this is A Cupnblo, Well Mniiased Ruad, abundantly able to pay its debts, requir- in whiciTtoipay;; tnac the present man-: agement is trying to effect a fair adjustment with the govQrnm..nt; that the interests of ihe govfernment and of the railway will bo promoted by a settlement, and tliut one can le made now under which every dollar of the govern-mdnt debt, with interest, will be paid. It finds , the present 83curity to bo a statutory lien on a road commencing three miles west of the Missouri river, extending to a point five miles we.st of Ogden, and on another. road. commeno ing one-half mile west of Kansas (ity and extending to a point SO-S miles westerly, commencing in a prairie and ending in one; not enough to Protect the Oovornment: Debt,'. . it it shall not be adjusted until it becomes due,, within. 51^000.000,. while under tho bill to lie reported the security obtained will l)e twice the government debt in value, and the payments, according to the terms of the bill, absolutely-certain. The report on the Contral Pacific finds that the United States has for security a statutory lien on a road, co.nmenciug at a point five miles wost of Ogden and extending to San Jose, without terminal facilities at either end, made subject to a mortgage to secure bonds equal in amouut to the original debt of the companies to the United States; that that portion of the ro id from Ogden to the westerly slopp of the Sierra Nevadas is I>rncMi!ulIy Only a Bi'idse without any loc-al business; that tho roads reaching from the main line into Nevada do not now pay their actu^l expenses; that the present security of the United State:) upou'this property is entirely in adequate; that a foreclosure of the first mortgage.would substantially exhaust, in satiafact on thereof, the entire property, and.f hat it would be inexpedient for the Unfted States to redeem it from said first mortgage or - to become the owner of the property through redemption and foreclo.snre. The reports find ithat it is expeaieot, necessary and prao-iticable to adjust and further secure the indebtedness to tlie United States upon extended time at a reduced rate .i f interest, It appears, from the report, that The Oentral Paclflo has not an ability to pay at all equal to thatof:the>Union Pacific, but under the terms of the bill oto be reported can make flnaL and full payment reasonaJ^ljT; certain., The t'ill to be reporte'd , in^ dudes within its "Jprovisionfl : the Union Pacific Railroad company, the Kansas Paclflo Railway oooipatay, the Oentral ^branch; :Union Pacifio Railroad com-, pany, consolidated under the name of the Union Pacific. Railway company; :tb�TGentralv'Paciflo:;Itailwayi company; �iioc^ssor to theCentral .Paclflo Rail way company ot California, and the Western Pacific Railroad company. TUVi ClOIfOBBSSIONAI. rOni5CA.ST. The Principal Moaaiireii thtit \viu Occnpy AttuntliMi TiiU Week. Washington, Feb. 17.-After suspending consideration of tlie subject for several days the senate will return to tho discussion of the 'Blair educational bill, and Mr. Klair, who has obtained a fresh supply of material in the interim, will.resume hid speech. The educational bill will absorb the senate's attention during the gr(n8id9ration may extend into tlie weak following. Meantime the calendar wilt be discussed during tho morning and at odd intervals, in the early fart of the Week some time will be devoted to the consideration of executive business and the British extradition treaty, and possibly the Buasiau treaty will be disposed of. The committee on finance will tako up all matters relating to^silver coinage, on Tuesday, and possibly dispose of them. The committee on privileges and elections will give some attention to. the Montana election case, but it will: be some time before a decision is reached. . There is every reason to Ijelieve that the controversy over the selection of �a site for the. world's fair will be settle I so far as the hoiise is concerned before another week-''has passed. The elections committee has agreed not to attempt to call up the Atkinson-Pundleton case until tho week following, and the way is clear for the fair bill. Mr. Candler's resolution .sets apart Tue.=iday and 'Wednesday for discussion and Thursday for voting, . while Jlr. Hitt's provides for only one day of discussion, Tuesday, with voting on the next day. A majority of the members seem to bo in favor of having at least two days' discussion, and for this reason Mr. Candler's pr.jp-osition has the better chance of being agreed to. There is a possibility ut a deadlockon tlie question at issue, and m the event of this It can not be said how the rest of tlie week may bo consumed. Friday is private bill day, and Saturday will probably be devoted to the delivery of eulogies ou deceased members. Tho appropriations committee o\-peol to have the pension appropriation bill ready to report to the liouse on Tuesday. FITZGERALD CALLS. The I.ine and staff. , WASHmoTON, Feb.
