WASHDfQToir , December 7 10 p. m.
After the journal of Monday had
been read and some preliminary busi
ness transacted , a number of proposi
tions were Introduced by unanimous
consent. Mr. Bawley was first recog
nized , and offered a bill to confirm the
action of the legislature of New York 7
and the committee filing the bounS
d'ary line between New York and
Connecticut , and asked that day be
aaaigned for its consideration.
Mr. Wood , chairman Of the
and means committee , objected to
"that , because he wanted no interfer
ence with the pending billthe passage
of whiah , he said , was an absolute ne
cessity at this session. His remarks
impressed the house with the fact that
the committee intended to press the
pending bill at this session. It was
finally agreed that the bill should come
np , the understanding being that it
would not involve much discussion.
A number of resolutions were
adopted , authorizing the public print
er to send , free of cost , a copy of the
congressional record to each of the
representatives of the United States ,
was -allowed.
A bill was introduced by Mr. Ward ,
of Pendsylvania , to authorize the ap

provement of the Mississippi river.
He was antagonized by Mr. Wood

A number of members who failed
to respond to their names yesterday ,
appeared to-day. The most promi
nent among them , Mr. Atkinson ,
chairman of the appropriations
committee. His arrival will stir the
appropriations committee to work ,
nd it is expected that a aumber of

The house has got into a wrangle
over the question of adopting a joint
resolution regarding the counting of
the elector * ! vote. T-he republicans
deny that it is a privilege , snd the
Democrats insist that it is. After it
'became manifest that the republicans
would accede to no terms as to the
electoral resolution , Mr. MoLane ap
pealed to Mr. Bicknell to withdraw
his motion and let tpe republican side
take the responsibility of wasting
time in delaying the passage of the
electoral count resolution.
Mr.fiicknell said ho was satisfied
that further debate on this question
would be a useless waste of time , am
in view of the manifestation of the
other side , he would withdraw hii
demand for the previous question.
Mr. Kiefer , of Ohio , wa * then rec

His argument was that Ihero was no
necessity for it , as the constitution ,

which the vote should becounted.

NEW YORE , December 8 1 a. m.
The announcement made yesterday
that detectives had located in Brook
lyn one of the men who is supposed to
have had a hand in the preparation
of the Morey letter , created a great
sensation. The mysterious person
was said to have been connected with
an evening paper In Brooklyn , and
suspicion pointed to The Eagle. The
only resignation that his taken place it
from the staff of any Brooklyn paper
since the announcement of the discov
ery of the Money letter , was that of
Stanley Huntley from The Eaple.
Eluntley is a bright young man and a
versatile writer. He was an intimate
'riend of Philp , and among his nu
merous accomplishments i ] the art of
nutating the style of various writers.
t is known that he wrote to a certain
western paper implicating Philp , and
also that a sudden estrangement
sprung np between the two immedi
ately after. A detective employed in
he Moroy letter case , said yeateiday
that the opinion was held to by sever
prominent parties that both these
men are concerned iu the forgery. t
Examinations of the Morey letter , it
since its exhibition in court , by the
aid of the Drummoud light and a
owerfnl photographic apparatus-have
ed to some remarkable disclosures.
't appears that no less than three dif- [
erent natnsa have been written on

A Spicy Letter from "Mazeppa"
Concerning Her Recent En
gagement in Omaha.
COLUMBUS , Neb. , Dec. 4,1880.
To the E lltor of the Bee.
DEAU SIB : Will you please give
space in your valuable jeurnal to this
letter , so that I may be able to ex
plain to the public the cowardly treat
ment I have been subjected to at the
hands of Daniel A. Griffin , the so-
called manager of the Academy of
Music in your city.
'I came to Omaha under contract to
him to play an engagemeet of four
nights and one matinee , he to furnish
house , combination , .printing , etc. ,
and give me 25 per cent , of the gross
receipts. He falsely represented
that I was playing under the ana-
pices of the Grand Army of the Re
public , and that the seats wore selling
at $3 a piece. Such , being the case ,
would suit me very well to break
my jump to San Francieci , and prove
quite a remunerative engagement for
me.I arrived on last Sunday morning ,
according to contract , for rehearsal ,
when Mr. Griffin called on mo at the
Withnell house , and informed me
that the company he had selected to
support me were mostly church mem
bers , and consequently we would havn
to defer the rehearsals until Monday
morning. On going to the Academy
for rehearsal Monday morning , I
there learned that I waa to be sup
ported by the amateurs of Omaha , and
that their daily duties would not per
mit them to be present for rehearsals ,
thereupon Informed Mr. Griffin that
would be impossible to produce the
drama , when he volunteered to pay
the charges en my horse and traps ,
and give me forty per cent of the gross
receipts instead of twenty-five. After
had agreed to give the entertain
ment , but to postpone my opening un
til Tuesday night , my husband asked
how much paper he had put up , and
Griffin answered that the town had
been well billed. When , on going to
our hotel , a gentleman said our paper
was still in the express office , and that
Griffin had not taken any of it out.
When called to account about this , he
took the paper ont , and sent it to
Mr. Lyon , the bill-poster. Mr. Lyon
refused to put it up , stating that
Griffin had refused to pay him money
due , and that he would hold the pacer
until he was paid. The printer in The
Hera'd building also claimed that
Griffin was in bis debt , and refused
print any matter until ho was paid.
My husband , Mr. Pettil , explained to
the above gentlemen our dilemma ,
and finally prevailed on them to put
the paper out.
Teen came my straggle to rehearse
the drama with only half the com
pany present. God and myself only
knows what I endured during my ef
fort to acquaint them with the parti
they were to play. All present at the
attempted rehearsals seemed to fully
realize that I had been victimized by
Griffin , and were loud in their con
demnation of him , and more than
willing' to assist mo to the best of
their ability , for which I sincerely
thank each and every one of my sup
port.My second contract with Griffin
waa a verbal one , 'and , as I have al
ready explained , waa as far as I know ,
settled. But I was compelle < Mo dis

The Tunnel Qravfl.
Bpodal Dispatch to iha Bea
NEW YORK , December 7 i p. m.
Several months ago twenty wo work
men weto killed in the Hudson river
tunnel , and not many days ago the
last of the bodies waa recovered. It
is state'd to-day that the danger from
which the laborers in the tunnel fled
on Saturday night was not imaginary ,
but real. The shift at work at mid
night was warned by a sound , which
indicated the escape of compressed
air , that there waa danger , and
the men at once deserted their tools
and ran , and an instant later , the
heart of the wall of the south tunnel
caved in and the water rushed in vol
umes. The men reached the caaslon
in safety. The south tunnel was
flooded with water and work was res
ponded until' Snuday evening ,
when an effort waa made to
re-enter the tunnel but it
was unnco ° sifnl. The tunnel Is
still flooded , and until the leak can
be stopped it will remain full of
water. The tunnel officials deny that
there waa any sSrions break.
Boports are conflicting , one saying
only the mall car and one coach was
burned. Mail Agents Lyons and
Bollar belong to the St. Lonia divi
sion. Bellar was at one time well
known as the editor of The Bepnbli-
can , a newspaper at Weaton , Mo.
Nothiagis known of Lyons' history.
