Mr. Plumb thcjn addressed the sen

of pension net.
Mr. Harrison ulao spoke in favor of
the principle of the pensions act ,
claiming that it appealed to the judg
ment and Bonso of justice of every
man in order to avoid frauds claimed
to exist. He approved the recom
mendation of the commissioner of
pensions that 400 special agents bo
appointed to investigate claims.

Mr. Cox ( N. Y. ) followed , saying

to recommit the bill to the committee
with instructions to formulate a now
till on the old system. Ho still hold
io his belief that 307 would bo the
number. Ho believed the house too
largo now rather than too small.
Since the committees of the house
had indicated , however , that it would
not accept 307 , he would accept the
number proposed by Mr. Colerick ,
" 310. Ho refused to permit interrup
tion" , as the question of figures is a
very delicate und particular one , and

NEW YOUK , February ! ) . George
W. Scoville , Guiteau'a brother-in-law
and lawyer , was in this city to-day on
business connected with the argument
to bo made in Quit can's behalf before
the court in bane in March. Scovillu
goes'hence to Chicago , whore he ex
pects to finish the accumulation of
material for Ins forthcoming argu
ment ! . He will again stop in New
York on his return to Washington.
To a question as to the truth of the
reports that solitary confinement has
broken Guitoau's spirit and that ,
barred of the accustomed publicity
for his speeches and writing ,
he has fallen into a sul
len and melancholy temper , Scovillo
says : "Such reports are exaggerated
as reports of that measure are apt to
bo. Of course solitary confinement is
not calculated to make any man bright ,
but it has not had the cilect upon this
prison or which has boon alleged. The
lust time , however , that I saw Gui-
tcau , and that was last Saturday , ho
was about the same. "
Scoville haa managed , during his
presence in this neighborhood to keep
entirely clear of reporters and to
make assurance doubly sure has
lodged in Jersey City to avoid news

WASHINGTON , February ! > . A shoot
ing affray took place in the office of the
National Republican just butoro 10 p.
in. , during which A. M. SoltoldoJr. ,
clerk of the senate u mumltoo on rail
roads , was faUllyshot in thoback of thu
neck , and Chirenco B.xrton , managing
editor of the Republican , WHS also
shot in the nick and again in the side.
The trouble between the parties was
of long standing. Solteldo was ut one
.imo managing editor ot thu Republi
can and afterwards correspondent of
ho San Francisco Chronicle and of
ho Baltimore Tim , s. Fur the iast
.wo sessions f congress ho has
> oen clerk of the senate committee
on railroads. Ho has gained
considerable notoriety lately .by n l w-
mit with the proprietor of the Lyon
ipuse , this city , and also on acooutit
of a fracas with Col. Jas. Keogan , of
Now York. The latter affair and its
equols have boon made the subject of
> uraonal comment by the Republican
uid Soltoldo has openly attributed the
authorship of the articles to Barton
ind declared ho Would in turn show
lim up to thu public in his true light.
L'o this end he procured what pur-
) ortod to bo copies of letters fiom
Jarton written some time ago
und confessing forger } * to the
kinoimt of several hundred dol-
ars. The p.ipora Solteldo held
n abeyance until to-day , when the
current issue of The Republican con
tained the following :
"Mr. A. M. Soltoldo , Jr. , a native
of Venezuela , South America , whilom
proprietor of the Lyon house , on V
itreet , cloik to the committee on rail
roads of the United States senate ,
tnd newspaper correspondent , offered
on Tuesday to Wm. 0. Hmton , a
typo on The Republican , five dollars
if he would secure for him the origi *
iml manuscript of u news article which
ippuared in these columns relative to
A. M. Soltoldo and Col. J. F. Keegan
on the 13th ult. Mr. Uinton , who
waa an apprentice on the Republican
some years ago when Mr. Soltoldo
was managing editor and who has
been attached to the paper for the lust
ton years , proved to bo incorruptible
and rotuaod to violate the customary
confidence reposed in employes of
luwspapor offices. Just why Mr.
Soltoldo , Jr. , desires the original man
uscript is not known but ho ought to
remember that bribery is not juurtial-
sm , and that such u proposition com-
ng from the clerk of a senate com-
nitteo would naturally tend to destroy
confidence in said clerk. The nigh
after the publication of the article ro-
'errod to Colonel Kocgan for
warded card to this office
giving the details of the disgraceful
iff.iira which brought himself and
Soltoldo into the courts and the nowa-
) apera. Mr. Solteldo got wind of the
mended publicatfSn , and through his
earnest personal solicitations und
those of his friends , based upon the
ileu that it would iinti him in the
; oiinnunity , thu card of Col. Keegan
was not published. This injustice to
" ! < il. Keogau and favor 0 A. M. Sol
toldo is repaid by the latter in an at
tempt to corrupt one of the employes
ot this journal , it ID not forgotten
'n this city that when Soltuldo was
natmging editor of the Republi
can lie boasted Unit ho hold
: ho mirror up to nature in
presenting the naked facts of passing
jvcntB to the public through its col-
JimiH. Whether ho did or not is best
known to those who remember his
signal failure in his efforts. The so
called failure was to bo very naturally
expected when Mr. Soltoldo's con
nection with the well known black
mailing sheet in Now York namely ,
the Free Lance -was BO well ro
Mr. Solteldo to-day characterized
the above OH libeloua und said he
should brini ; action against the paper.
To-night , however , ho and his young
er brother , Charles , went to the Re
publican office a little before 1C
o'clock and found Barton at work ed
iting telegraphic news. No onu else
was present. Others in the building
heard several shotH fired , Barton
and the younger .Soltoldo had
an after acufllo down Blairs
and the elder Solteldo was found un
conscious on the floor of the sanctum.
The latter remained unconscious for
nearly an hour. Doctors Bliss and
Adams attended. Ho was found to
have been shot in the baok of the
neck and the ball Roomed to have
poasod downward through thu spine.
His hands and feut were
par.ilyy.ed , but when consciousness
i turned ho was able to talk incoher
ently. JIo said ho did not know who
shot him ; that ho was very sorry that
lie was going to die , and ho wanted ; o
bo taken to the I'rovidcnco hospital.
.At 11 n. m ho was removed there and
his wife informed of the fact.
Barton was found on the counting
room floor , lie was ublo to walk to i
carriage and wan taken home. His
story is that the Soltcldos came in 01

impiTs the older hold in hin ham's
He refused to look at them , saying lie
waa not the editor. Thereupon the
elder Solteldo seized him by the throat
thu younger fired at him und then ho
took'out his pistol from a drawer ir

says , however , that ho could not have
