NVASHINUTON , January 17. Thofol
lowing bills were introduced :
By Mr. D.xvis (111. ( ) , to permit Uni
ted States Justice Ward to retire.
By Mr. Blair , to pension Mrs. Gnr-
fiold. Referred.
By Mr. Conger , to provide for n
commission on the liquor traflic. Laid
on the table until a aeli'ct committee
is appointed.
At 1:20 : p. rn. , the 3 per cent fund
ing bill came up aa unfinished busi
ness. Mr. Plumb took the floor on
his amendment.
Mr. Plumb was followed by Mr.
Pugh , advocating further amendment
to Mr. Vest's amendment , Mr. Teller
in favor of a silver standard , Mr.
'Saundurs in support of the general
features of the bill , and Mr. Pondle-
tonwho , favored n compulsory amend
ment. Without disposing of the bill ,
the senate at 4 p. m. wont into execu
tive session , and soon after adjourned.
The senate , in executive session to
day , confirmed a number of nomina
tions for postmasters.
Mr. Ilutchins , discussing the re
port of the committee on rules in
creasing the membership of commit
tees , criticised the formation of sev
eral of the committees and said that
ho would favor thu election of com
mittees by the house and not permit
the speaker to dictate the legislation
of the whole country in thu appoint
ment of committees.
Mr. Kosson said that there was no
need for increasing the size of the
committees. Small committees ac
complish more than largo ones. Ho
argued that the election of commit
tees would be no reflection on the
'speaker , and would at the aamo time
do away with the opportunities the
present system oilers for the use of
the promise of committee place for
support for speaker.
' Mr. Orth offered as a substitute
that the house after or
ganization at the commencement
of each congress shall elect eleven
members , whose duty it will be to re
port to joint standing coni-
.ditieos , tlio latter to bo ooloctod'in
the order of length of service in con
gress , and the committoeathus consti
tuted be permanent committees dur
ing such oongroas. In offering the
substitute Mr. Orth contended the
present system was a one-man power ,
a power always dangerous , and one
which the American people will not
accept. He did not make any criti
cism upon the committees as appoint
ed. His object was for above that.
By the plan embodied in his substi
tute thu majority will control the
committees but the minority will have
proper representation.
Mr. Heed atrreed with his commit
tee in full regarding the enlargement
of committees , as ho doubted the pro
priety of making the increase sug
gestion , but should not antagonize
the report.
Mr. Kelley WAS opposed to the re
port increasing the membership of
committees. The larger a committee
has grown the loss work has been
dono. Ho moved to lay the report
of thu committee and the substitute
and the amendment on the table.

WASHINGTON , January 17. It is
believed Kirkwood is to bo tendered
a foreign mission when his successor
is appointed. There is nn doubt that
the president's intention now i.s to
appoint Mr , Sargent of California
.secretary of the interior. Mr.
'Kirkwood will bo offered Berliner
or Vienna , as it is said upon the
-authority of Senator Harrison that
John 0. New is to go to St. Peters
burg to succeed Colonel Foster. John
Baker is to go to Chili to take the
place of thu late Kilpatrick , and Pit-
Vkin , of Louisiana , is to bo sent to
Mexico. U. A. Sheridan is talked ,
of for the consul general"
ship at Montreal. Judge Den
ny , who is now at Shanghai ,
China , is to bo promoted to Pekin ,
; and Mosby promoted from Hong
Kong to Denny's place. Gen. Bur-
bridge a friends are now pushing him
for the Belgian mission. There ia
talk also of sending Badeau back to
London nnd giving Morrittsome other
place equally good. It U understood
that Cramer , now in Switzerland , maybe
bo promoted to tlio Portugese mis
sion and Staunton , consul general
at St. Petersburg , it ia said , will be
eont further south , owing to failing
health in that rit'oroua climate. It ia
announced that the president has de
termined to otlor Chauncey I. Filloy a
Aret-clo&s foreign appointment , but his
frioBds say that ho will not accept.
It is also rumored Arthur may find
this a convenient way of disposing of
Secretary Hunt when ho makea up hia
mind to appoint a now man in the
navy department who will piobably
be William E. Chandler. It is believed -
lioved a change will bo made , at Ha
vana , Hall , the consul general there ,
being rather too advanced in life to
11 the position much longer , It ii
believer General Strother will con-
tinuo consul general nt the City o

John W. Munford , of South Mend ,
was in town to-day in search of his

old his story , utter much ' solicitation
on the part of the reporter.11 follows ;
Tiie girl had not yet attained her
iftoenth year , but both she and Dar
ing had for some four or live montha
jn badly smitten with each otlior'n
harms. The Munford parents had
lot opposed the blissful dro.uns of the
oung couple , except with the uingio
bjecciun that the girl waa too young ,
'lie mother of the young maiden had
tuted her positive refusal to both of
lieu ) , and had endeavored to roaaon
ivitli tlium , tolling them to unit yet u
ittlo until the girl uua old
nough to marry , and then if
lieir ulTuctious stood thu teat of
elay , she would consent. In spuu
f this , however , the youthful couple
ome time siiuo concocted a scheme
0 run away and achieve the wish of
heir heart. Their scheme was do-
ected nnd foiled by Mr. Mimford ,
nd the young girl was professedly
very penitent , And prumised ti > yield
10 more to the solicitations of her
'oung and ardent lover. Tlio father ,
lotvovcr , placed but little taith in the
jirl's seeming penitence , and had
atoly kept u strict and untiring watch
over her every action , confining her
* t homo'determined not tb'allbwher )
f possible to prevent it , an opportu
nity to have anything to do with the
'ouug ' man , and forbidding the iiu-
jutuoua Alplionso the house.
_ Last evening the girl , in company
with a little sister about six years of
go , stopped out into the yard without
> von a hat , shawl or cloak. In a short
ime the little girl returned , saying
hut Caroline had sent her in with the
iromiso to follow "in a minute. " Li
ess than live minutes Mr. Munford ,
uspectinc something amiss , went out
nd found that aho was gone. Imjuiry
ovoloped the fact that the gay Al-
moiiHo was likewise gone , with a team
nd buggy. Since then nothing him

uwing to the frozen condition of ( lie

oncliiMon that they liave headed to

d. He says the girl has alwuya here-
ofore been a good girl and has borne
1 good name As it m , they will not

onso unless by perjury. Mr. Mun-
ord nayn that it waH n witll planned

wore probably assisted by a sister of

an lonuuL'd Guituau had a short nd-
Irt'Ha upon \\\A \ \ right to speak. Sco-
ville hud read it and found nothing ob-
octiuiiiililo in it. No objection being
\iised , Scovillu then read an addresa
to the court , appealing to the court to
charge the juiy that if they believe
that ho believed at the time of the
shooting hovns acting under special
hvinu authority they must acquit on
.he ground of tramsitury mania. CSul- added that if any one man on thu

lealud to thu eonrt to permit him to

Scovillo began by attacking the
conduct ot Coi k hill in obtaining by
'also pretotiBi'n statement from the
iriuoiirr , and described an scandalous
.he medical experts who examined
iiiiUuu'a mental condition several
aonths after the shooting , and had no
noans ( if telling what wa the ulate of

cised nharpiy the entire coun > o ot thu
mmooiition ut ungentlumanly. They abused the witncases for the do-
ense , but not attacked Dr. Spitr.ku'n
act or theory , lieeanso they could not
uccoHsfully do BJ , but sought tnuyor-
oino the ull'ect of his manly and scien-
ilio .statement by police couit moth-
odp. They adopted the name courmj

witnoKium believed theiriHoiiur ] insane ,
md wore ( Uialilictl to pass an opinion
ipon the subjoot which could not bu
controverted by misstuteiiieiit or ridi-
uled. The prosecution objected to
he defense presenting the testimony
f Detective MuHlfresh , the ollicoc
who rode wilh the prisoner to jo-ll
mmcdiately after the Hhooling. Tim
oason for the objection Mas McH-
resh'a evidence would tthow thu con-

and if the truth wan known the pos-
sugo cut out was favorable to the pris-
iner. The proaecution's wituess ,
teynoldo , ' had endeavored fo entrap
he prisoner into statuments injurious
, o his cane. The prosecution ulso-ob-
ected to the prisoner addroasiug the
ury in defense of himself.
Scovillo then appealed to the jury
f thia was fair treatment in the iater-
unt of justice and whether it indicated
t desire of the proaecutiun for n fair
and impartial trial. Scovillo ssJd ho
tad heard enough of this nonsense
jbuut "fair play. " The reaaun for
he extraordinary conduct of thu

Scoville then argued to the jury
hat Guitenu was insane , or nine he
vould have put on his hat nnd left

With Portor'B addiem ho was thrown

Scovillo resumed : Uuiteau was hon
est in his belief that he WUH inspired
and he pitied the human belli ) ; who ,
with thu light of thu nineteenth cen
tury of Christianity scowled at inspir
ation. Hcovillo said the theological
career of Guitean was simply that of
a medium. Hu would not have been

mpirutions were also proof of the un <
soundness of his mind. Scoville LJI-

of the chief characteristics of insanity
md everything in Guituau's career
showed him to be possessed of that
characteristic , but he wait hono&i and
sincere , with thu gibbutt staring him

Counsel wont on to refer to the
morbid mind of Oniteuu prior to the
