WASHINGTON , April 8. Ihe ques
tion of admitting campaign paper
stories about Hurlbut was laid over
i Shipherd-said ho had no ether cor
respondence with Blaine than that
printed ; ho bad n letter to Bout -veil
intended as nn answer to that of
Blaine of December 18 , 1881 , and waste
to have delivered it to the secretary of ' I
state , whoever might be such. The
letter reviews the transaction as Ship- i
herd understood it then , nnd refers to
Elaine's allusion to the attempted
brib ry of Hurlbut ns a malicious in
sinuation nnd n vulgar impudence ,
and said ho looked to Boutwoll to set
3iim right with the new secretary. He
siys Blaine suggested the retention of
Senator Blair.
Shipherd , in his testimony Friday , ;
alluded to ox-Ministor Christiancy us
having endorsed the scheme. The
latter was interviewed , and said the
story was untrue. Ho said ho never >
heard of the Cochut claim until after
hia return from Peru , and never ex
amined it. He waa retained by Ship-
herd ainiply because of having u gen )
eral knowledge of Peruvian affairs.

'WASHINGTON , April 9. It will be 8 (
remembered that Whitulaw Iloid in OlC
the Tribune investigation into the C (
theft of Reid's famous dispatch to la
Garfield , narrowed down the theft tc
to ono or two peraonr , Mr. Hutchinson - cc
son , then manager of the Baltimore iyol
& Ohio telegraph ollice at Washing olg
ton , and Mr. CJuthridge , operator g >
there in the employ of the Cincinnati ai
Gazette bureau. The Tribune yesterday - aihi
day publiahed nn article tending to si
faaten the theft on Guthridgo. The tr
publication has given riao to the is u- ia i
nnco of a letter to Guthridgo by Gen. tli
H , V. Boyton , ropreaontutivo of the ai
Cincinnati Gazette nt Washington , in 4 ,

WASHINGTON , D. 0 ; Vpril 9 , Do- la
: * \
spite the fact that congrets has done
but little to startle thocountry , it is
getting along fully na wejll nstho nvcr-
ngo with the routine of wwrk in con
sideration of the appropriation bills.
In the house more than imlf of those
have pasted , nnd thougiutho senate is
rather slow in action Upoji them , the
members generally hrtpq _ these will begotten
gotten out of the way n good timo.
Of important measures { passed there
it. no record , save thaUofUho Mormon
question nnd the Chincs&b ; ) ! , nnd the
latter has been undone nnd has boon
done ovor. Democrats are content to
lot the matter rest as it now stands ,
believing to have gained much. Pa
cific coaat Republicans will urge the
matter , nnd the committfeo to which
was referred the ten , 11 f teen nnd six
teen years' bills in the hovjtb will prob
ably report the ton years'bill { , which
will promptly pass unless the
Democrats oppoao it on the
ground that they want 15 years.
Discussion of the tariff commission
bill oooins likely to run tliroo or
four weeks longer. Ono hundred or
more speeches will bo , ready < ! ocdo- ,
livery , and as each member ia usually
gtnnted nil the time ho wants , and na
there nre usually three or four
speeches per day , nnd unless innny
have leave to print them , there 13 no
tolling where it will end. -
As soon as tins und the Chinese
bill nro out oi the way , the intention
is to take up contested election caaoa ,
and n long and lively fight is threat
ened over thcao by tlio democrats ,
and the indications nro the republi-
ratis will give them a clmncu to' make
thia sort of record in thcao casca if
ihoy desire. Republicans cay they
iiavo , in considering a case rejected
.n committee all republican
claimants who seemed xiiot to
lave good grounds for * contest ,
and propose to como before the house
with only strong cases. They will
Hing up the strongest of those first ,
: eing that of Lynch vs. Chalwora , in
the "fihocatriiig" district of Missis
sippi. This district is so called from
the fact that it stretches along the
Mississippi river from ono end of the
state to the other , with the object of
throwing moit of the colored votes of
the state into it. Chalmers held his
seat from this "shoestring" district
by reason of. many republican ballots
being thrown out because they had on ;
them a "distinguishing mark1 which
was forbid by the law of the state.
This distinguishing mark , however , it
is said , was merely n printcr'a dash
bctwoe'n its name and it is hold this
rejection and the seating of Chalmers
with some 40 majority was unjust.
Republicans claim tliis us a very strong
case nnd will bring it up first
and believe if the democrats choose
to filibuster they , can well afford to
let them do so. It ia probable that the
republicans will be able to c rry all
these cases and favor qivin& Lowe ,
grocnbacker , the sent - nowfield by >
General Wheeler , which it is expected
will lead the greenb&ckera to vote
with 'the republicans on most , oi .the
ether eases , '
Cannon's case will prolxihlv , be
quickly disposed 61 , iDough he&atms
that ho is really better off now 'than
before the passage of the polygamy ;
bill. , An attempt to reject him on E
the ground of non-citizenship will , ho
says , fail , as he has , been recognized
as a citizen for years by holding his i
sent aa n dslogato in several suasions
of congress already. For the repub
licans to reject on account of polyg-
nmy would , ; ho says , stultify '
their own record , as they
seated him in former congresseswhen
ho same iaaue was made. Besides
they cannot , ho aaya , now prove him
polygamiat. Ho has never hereto-
ere denied being a polygamiat , but
low that the recent law on polygamy
ma so forbiddov , . his relation is
ihangcd , nnd he no longer admits
joint , ' n polygamiat. It ia supposed
10 holds unless otherwise proven that
10 is not n law abiding citizen , aud
n thus obeying the law is not a poly-
amist. Moreover , ho eaya ho haslet
lot since its paaaogo been living in [
jolygamy or violated the law. Ho
lolda his case is really strengthened
y ' the passage of the recent law.
Ipubtful , but it ooema probable it Ti
rill put off hia case as long as pos&i- an
lo , or until territory is under work- on
ng order under the new law uncl the lu
inti-polygamy commission , and then luTt
end the case back to the pooplo. Ttwe
With those cases out of the way the
' we
IOUBO will'probably take up and' pass sa
OHIO measuio to remove to the court
if claims private claims which now th
omo before it in largo numbers and
urge amounts , authorizing the court
examine and report the factj to pr
ongrois , when the cases can boquick- >
disposed of. The number ot bills goth
f this sort before the present cou
, . . , , tin
rcss is more than over before known m ,
lid will probably aggregate several
undn-d million dollars , The neces
ity for getting these to some proper
ribunnl was recognized long ago and
now more than ever apparent and en
ho bill will probably puss this sea- sol
ion. Should this ba done , few of the of
,000 private bills now before St ;
lie houses will bo acted an
n this session and after the passage
the appropriation bills with the five Sy
lillions clause in the river bill for the
nproveinont of the Mississippi , nnd
alt of the 75 bills for public build- 01
iga , congreaa will probably bo ready nu
adjourn about Juno 15 , unless it pa
hpuld be persuaded to pass ono of Bl
lu'p canal or ship railway bills , which byte
sems exceedingly doubtful.
