Washington-, May 11, '"4.
"Veni, Udi, Mci!" I came, I
j.aw the elephant I conquered
the bill of fare at the National. I
have been through the Treasury of
the United States, and the cost of
fceeing the sights has gone through
me financially. I have explored
the subterranean depths of the Cap
itol Building, studied the working!,
of the huge fan in the basement
that manulactures wind for the en
tire building, and must express my
astonishment at the need of any
such instrument Sincelhave been
in hearingof that august body, "The
House," there has been more wind
to the square inch of tongue than
in any assemblage I was ever in.
According to newsjaper cognomen,
tim TInni of Itcnresentatives is
called the ''wind can," and the ap
propriateness of the title none will
gainsay. A striking instance of
confusion, hubbub, and considerable
warm-blooded expressions was en
acted to-day upon the floor of the
Hou, and Shaker Blaine so far
furirnt liis pouimimitv and irood
judgment as to bring down upon his
beau tne severest criticisms, anu
the prevJ reporters ill score him
severely for his discourteous and
A bill under discussion was urged
to passage, In the faceof very strong
opposition, when Garfield moved
an adjournment. The speaker crit
icised the irtption of Mr. Garfield,
and questioned him as to his good
faith. In an instant the House was
upon its feet, the greatest excite
ment prevailed for u uiomont, and
several members rebuked the chair
wjverely. Mr. Garfield, courteous,
calmlybut forcibly hurled baok the
strictures at the Speaker, and 6ald,
"Sir, I will neither permit the
chair, nor any member of this
honorable body, to question the
purity of my motives, or question
my good faith in this matter. The
prerogatives of the chair does not
glvp you tne province io no ouier
than put Ufa question." The re
porter's gallery lit thjs Unrepresent
ed a very animated scene, a score, of
heads, struggling to get over the
rail, and all confusion. The course
of the Speaker was declared tyran
nical, and imperious In the extreme,
and was generally condemned. Or
der was hnally restored, tfip House
went into committee of the whole,
and the confusion subsided.
The never ending and important
Omaha transfer question, still occu
pies a Iarg3 share of the time of our
Nebraska representatives. A nuni
imr nf hiiu I iPM riiic utioii the issue
are in the hands of the committee,
ing jnadc on behalf of the Iowa
roads. Mr, Allison, otTered on the
7th inst., In tha Senate, a bill which
strikes a heavy Wow at the interests
of Omaha. The substance of the
bill is to make the Union Pacific
bridge, and its approaches on both
..i.w if tlm rivr. a nart of the cor
porate line of the road, "And the j
same is nereoy aeciareu io uuuau
tute, and shall be operated as a part
of the continuous line of the Union
Pacific Railroad." This would in
effect, legislate the initial point of
the Union Pacific railroad, out of
Nebraska, and into the jurisdiction
of Iowa. Our Nebraska representa
tives are giving the closest possible
attention to this matter, and zeal
ously looking after the interests of
the State. It WfU be understood that
these bills are at prpsent in the
hands of the committees, and not
yet reported to either brauoh of Con
Senator Hitchcock, in behalf of
Omalia, has introduced an amend
ment "that this bill shall not take
effect, nor be In force, go long as the
railroads crossing the State of
Iowa and terminating on tho Mis-
: -:... -f nnnnsite Omaha
shall fail or refuse to deliver at
Omalia freight and passengers de
signed for Omaha and westward
without change of cars or breaking
bulk, nor while any statute of the
State of Iowa shall remain Jn force,
forbidding such delivery." This
expresses the line of defense that
will brobably be made to the opposi
tion, though in the event of the
committee reporting a bill, doubt
less a number of other features
will lie incorporated. Omaha was
heard before the committee to-day.
Messrs. Millard, Saunders, Thayer,
Tulle and others are on hand look
ing after matters. Senator Hitch
cock introduced a b'tlj whjeh has
passed the Senate, abrogating the
present bioux treaty, uouur me
existing provisions of the treaty the
work of finishing the purvey of the
northern boundary of the State
must be abandoned, as his imperial
highness, and royal dignitary,
Spotted Tail, says: "Me big In
juu; you no come any farther."
Congressman Crounse, in the face
of the strongest opposition, and in
antagonism to tho persistent etTorts
of Judge .Hoar, anu oiner jeguwu
mlnark's. hits succeeded by perse
verance In securing the passage in
tim House a Land Tax Bill, of the
greatest importance to Nebraska, as
it provides lor me collection 01 ue
linquent railroad taxes. One of the
main features of the bill, and of
vital importance, Is In eiTvct, that
railroads having land grants under
the act of 1804, shall bo subject to
all legal taxes imposed under au
thority of the State or Territory in
which such lands are located, and
in the event that such lands be
come delinquent; they nhnil be sub
ject to the legal rights and title of
the tax sale purchaser; and the cor
porations holding such lands under
the grants, shall be subject to the
same costs and penalties, as would
accrue to individuals. Judge
Crounse Is entitled to much com
mendation, for his success jn secur
ing the passage of this Bill; he en
countered the strongest opposition,
and only accomplished his oTject,
by "fixing tho pins," and rushing
it through under a suspension of
the rules, thus cutting offdlscussion
before the house, which woidd have
probably defeated the Bill. The
chances in the Senate are consid
ered favorable. .,,.,,, .
The great Centennial 1ml s. vir
tually defeated for this session, buj
will doubtless present itself agin,at
the next session. It is a Hydra
headed monster, and offers such an
enticing field for lobbyists, that it
will not be permitted to die, or suffer
strangulation. Hawley, of Connec
ticut, made a forcible, strong argu
ment In its favor, and as Chairman
of the Centennial Board, endeavored
to carry the load, but his back
weakens under the weight. It is
estimated -that about $300,000 of
contemplated appropriation -is al
ready "mortgaged away" to the
lobby, and this feature of itself, is
sufficient to condemn the scheme.
In this letter I have endeavored
to deal with matters legislative, and
of essential importance to Nebras
ka. In my next Twill endeavor to
dish up some of the fringed ends of
gossip, and portray a few of th pe
culiarities of tho Washington ele

tence that is strung conspicuously
across the door of our "poetic Sena

A potltlon was filed "in tbo U. S,

William Golding, to throw the U.
P. R. R. into voluntary bankruptcy.
The argument was heard before
Judge Lowell, who fixed May 23d
for the company to appear and an
swer. " The Verifie'd' petition on
which proceedings of the court was
held, recites among others the fol
lowing allegations: that the com
pany transferred the road, from
Omaha to Ogden, to the Union Trust
Company of Kew Yorkon the lfith.
of December, I873, to secure $1G,T
000,000 coupon bonds of said com
pany; that tho assignment was made
with intent to delay, hinder and
defraud the company creditors and
is a bindranco to the petitioners'
claim payable In 1874, and Intended
to compel them to take instead
other bonds of tho company matur
ing in 20 years; and that the com
pany performed another act of bank
ruptcy Jn transferring t ra.d and
appurtenances to the Union Trust
company, and said transfer is recor
ded as a mortgage in every country
through which the railroad runs,
and was made while insolvent and
in contemplation of bankniptoy.
Hero follows tho figures showing
the indebtedness of the company to
be ten millions ot dollars, payable
December, 1874, and that the com
pany is unable, In the ordinary run
of its business, to pay tbo said ten
millions when the same is due.
