Mr. Van Wyck Very likely. I
runt to sue it.
Mr. Windom If the Konalor will

Mr. Morgan I should llko to say to

incp to the trnna-ocrnnic telegraph
) usinvss over presented tn the Honnlo ,

ows ;
Mr. Van Wyck I auk the senator

mondmontof Uiosonalor from Maine ,
r rather if ho will protect the public
n the same way that ho will protect
ho goTornmont , by saying tlio rates
hall not exceed twenty cents per
Mr. Lapham-I am not authorized

Mr. Van Wyck-lf the senator will
lo that and protect the public , then I
hall have no objection ,
Mr. Bayard I suggest to the sena
tor from Nebraska that the protectio
does exist when you expressly rcsorv
the right to fix the rates by genon
law. I know very little of the coi
of this business , but when you n
servo the right to fix by general la'
any excess can bo prevented.
Sir. Lapham Wo do fix the rate rte
to the government.
Mr. Van Wyck My answer to the
is , as I said beforothat it is no protci
tion to the public. In 1804 you prc
toted the public by reserving th
right to congress to rogulalo the rate
on the Pacific railroads. That neve
has been dono.
Mr. Bayard Docs not my frion
think that competition is the boat roj
ulation ?
Mr. Van Wyck Wo have boon tel
that would bo the effect of compel
tion in regard to our land tolcgrap
lines , nnd jot every organizUion of
now company under the compotitio
is absorbed by the old one , nnd th
public sutler by thn watering of th
stock in the increased rate of charge !
I say to my friend that will bo s
horr. If you intend to protect th
public ns you claim you are willing t
do , do it here and noiw by saying t
the public they shall bo protected i
the same way that wo protect thu gov
eminent , nnd make it twenty cents
Mr. Halo Lot mo aak the sonatr
if wo have not had the same expc
rionco in rogird to competition in
only on land telegraphs but "on se
lolegrapho ? Wo chartered n cabl
company with the idea that compel
lion would keep down the rates , an
the lust.coin puny chartered waa opot
aled for n time , but when they wor
consolidntrd within thu last tw
ironths thu rates wcio at ouco put n
from twenty five cents lo fifty cents
word , so that competition does not nc
compliah the result. Compotitio ;
runs for a while , but amalgamation i
the end of competition. 1 airoo lull ;
with the Hcnator from Nebraska tha
hero nnd now ia the pl.ico in which ti
put the limit thai shall bo charge
upon Ibis line for public or privat
messages , nnd if wo do not do i
now wo never shall do it.
Mr. Van Wyck Never.
The President pro tempore Th
aonalor from Now York nska for th
consideration of the bill. Does th
senator from Nebraska object ?
Mr. Van Wyck I do.
The Presidnnt pro tempore Objection
tion being made , the bill goes over.
The outcome of this contest wa
that the committee on foreign affair
agreed finally to limit the cable rate t
twenty cents per word , and the bil
will doubtless pass in that shape
This is thu first time within the las
twenty years that n limit has beci
fixed by congress in the charges of tin
telegraphic companies to the publii
since the Pacific telegraph charter o
\Vhon the now cable ia complete (
sompo'ing lines will bnvo to roduct
their rutoa to meet the rate fixed bj
: ongroos , and the patrons both in thii
iountry and Europe will reap the ban

noroly for n day or a year , but ni
eng as thu ciblo remains in operation
Will the champion of Valentino nm

There will bo very lilllo regret ex

lolitical parties would have lost any
thing by the move.
It is usual with congresses ns will
legislatures to dcolaro that each ii
ivorso than the last. While the prns'
ant congrcasJiBS failed signally in tin
performance of duties which the pub
lie demanded and which the loaders ol
joth parties promised nt the begin
ling of the ncsaion , its work tukon oil
n all has not fallen behind Ihonchiuvo
nontn of iti predecessors , A numbei

Many measures remain pending it
iommittees of either the sonata or the
IOUBO , having baon pnssod by OIK
jody , Among these are the Japanese
ndomnity bill ; the bill to reduce tux-
ition ; to create n court of appeals ; tc
ilaco flonoral Grant on the
otirod list ; to admit Di-
cola into the union , the bill tc
egula\o \ the mode of counting the
iloctoral vote , and last , but not least ,
our Val'fl bill to crcato a cabinet offic
for the man nt the head of the gardo
Bass bureau. The postal savings bil
the bankruptcy , educational , intoi
state commerce and llawniian r <
ciprocity bills , though considered i
committees , have not been touched b
either house ,
It is worthy of notice that privat
jobs have fared very poorly with th
present congress. The closing houi
of the session have been free from th
usual disgraceful scones in which th
private calendar was cleared of th
most disreputable claims nmtd th
smoke and disorder attending ac
journment. If many of tha most im
portant measures have remained ur
touched , few objectionable bills oul
raging the good sense of thn countrj
the river and harbor atci ! nlono o ?
copied , have run the gauntlet of bet
houses. The nation might have gen
farther than the present congress nn
fared worse.
The oven balance of political * parlic
has made individual and party n
sponsibilily less. Where a few nl
Eunices or n convenient pair wi
change tha entire tenor of n vote
congressional cowardice is always at
premium. To this was largely < lu
the lack of determined and positiv
notion on the pirt of both sonnto ru
house in regird lo Uio great question
of the tariff and tax reduction. An
the fooling that neither party could b
undo to bear the odium of the p.isar.g
of the harbor bill over the prosidtnitir
vole was undoubtedly responsible fo
the final succors n ] mcasurovhic
democrats and re ; . , 'cans alike vote
to Bocuro.
Tha first scssic the present congress
gross will doubtless bo blamed mor
than for any ono other delinquonc ;
for their failure to deal squarely am
honestly with the question of re
ducing the taxes. It was a delator ;
nnd cowardly policy which passci
over the final adjudication of this subject
joct lo the next aeesion after pro
trading the meeting of both aonati
nnd house for at least a month longo
than was necessary on the pretext o
finally disposing of the revenue ro
duclion bill. Gut as wo said bofon

The Inaldo of * < ow York Politics.
New York CorrwpoiuloioiCl idnuail Comincr-
u& .
Within the past week there havu
) cun curtain development ! ) , in Iho way
uf movements , which will exert u povv-
Jrf nl inllueiico upon the politics of this
Stato. For the uut : month the Dam
nation of Cornell haa bot-n conceded
jy nearly everybody , but , suddenly n
chiviiL'u has taken place and the Gov
ernor's ronominatioa haa becauio a
natter much in doubt. The Admin-
str.ition has taken a direct hand in
the politiai of our Stato. This may
DO denied , but ibis a fait nevertheless ,
During the whole summer the politi-
sal workers , who follow , and have fol-
owed for many years , the political
Fortunes of the President , have waited
with no little impatience a sign from
Washington , which would indicate the
jollcy to bo pursued by the distinc-
: ively Arlhur Stalwart wing. And
while they waited tl-oy watched with
nanif < < 8t displeasure tha work the Oor-
loll adherents woroilaing , unobstruct
ed by organized opposition , The
eng session of Congress has boon
m embarrassment to thu President ,
to far as Now York politics were
joncornod , but the time was come , if
Cornell was to bo prevented from
walking off with the gubernatorial
cake again , when interference mu
take place , So , notwithstanding con
grcss was in session , the order wa
passed nlong on Friday last to sprin
to and array all the torcos of opposi
tion against the governor , Yetterda
morning John J. O'Brien , chief of th
bureau of elections in New York Oily
ono of the most dovotcd of the presi
dent's adherent , as well ns ono of th
shrewdest political workers in th
state , returned from Washingtor
bearing the plan of campaign nud th
instructions to the ether leaders c
the Arthur etnlwarls. There ha
been previously some effort made t
combine the half-breeds and the stal
warts of the Arthur stripe upon
candidate. This failed , liad it nc
been for Roscoe Oonkling , perhaps ,
combination upon Congressman Wadi
worth , who , by the way , is the strong
cst republican in the state , migh
have been effected. The hatred bi
twcen Conkling nnd Wndsworth i
intense , and Antedates Wadsworth1
prominence in politics. Finding
combination upon any ono candidM
impossible , it was agreed that bet
factions should enter into the field an
secure candidates to the atnto convci :
tion independent of influence nn
pledged only to vote against Cornel !
And with this understanding the wor
haa begun. The administratio
takoa a direct hand in the fighl , nn
thu onscqticnco is lo make what bu
n week ago scorned absolutely certai
extremely deubtfu' ' Cornell's nomi
nation. 'Coincident wilh this dircc
notion of Iho administration is the nr
pointment of Michael S. Dady , o
Brooklyn , by the president to b
superintendent of the public building
of the east DidjM nppoinlmont ia
matter of the greatest surprise to th
politician ? , for.Jio has not hitherto bee
considered n urm of power or promi
nonce. Hut a short time ngo ho wn
principally known as ono of "Al. " Dag
golfs chief "heelers , " and that con
utilutcd hia solo claim to celebrity
Later ho quarreled with his chief , nm
cinco has been conspicuous because o
hia virulent opposition to the ex
sheriff and ex-weighing contractor
Dagqott about three weeks ago sud
denly turned to bo an aggressive sup
porter of Cornell. Ho expected ti
bring with him a largo following ti
the governor , but in this ho was mis
taken. Dady , in the meantime , became
came a bitter opponent of Cornell
and has been engaged in endeavors tt
defeat Daggott's nuns in these dia
tricts over which the latter is sup
posed to have control. Herein , then ,
lies the explanation of Dady's ap
pointment. Congress has passed c
law authorizing Ihe ornclion of a nen
United S.ales building in Brooklyn ,
Thia will give Dady palronago righl
away in that city to assist him in liif
war ugainafc Dagett and Cornel ) , st
that it is ono of the first indication !
of administrative action in the Cor
nell contest.
The Arthur stalwart * are nlreadj
claiming that the governor will not be
able to control moro than one-third ol
tlm delogalcs to the state convention ,
This body ia composed .of four huii'
drad and eighty-sight delegates , and
two hundred and forty-five are noons'
-iary to a choice. Of the four hundred
Lincl tighty-eight , ono hundred and
twenty-livo como from Now Yorkc.ty
and Brooklyn , and the opponents of
Cornell boldly assort that ono hun
red of thiss number will be found in
iinplacablo opposition to the Cover'
nor , ar.d this claim is not ill founded.
Cornell's strength lies in the country
distiicls , and it is there that the Gov.
ornor has put in his hardest work. It
will require something mo'ro than more
assertion to make people believe that ,
as the opposition claims , every county
in the State containing a largo city
will bo against a nomination. There is
justice hi the claim tint thb gover
nor has obtained a fictitious strength
by having the field to himself for sc
long a tune , and while I am not will
ing lo admit lo myself that ho is beaten -
on yol , us they claim , I am quilo cer
tain that Cornell's renomination is nc
longer a foregone conclusion. Foi
the first time the half-breeds and the
stalwarts of the stalwarts nro shoul
der to shoulder , working for the same
end. There is little talk as yet as tc
who will bo the nominee in tbo case ol
Cornell's defeat : Such names aa arc
mentioned are Congressman James W.
Wadsworth , Altornoy General llus
sell , Congressman Richard Crowley
and ex-Insurance Superintendent 0 ,
W. Chapman. It will not bo aur
prising if it bo Iho latter , for ho is n
cross between a half-breed and a slal <
wart a surt of man compromises fall
Another development has been the
issue of a call for a convention of Ihc
labor men ,
This is an important movement , for
in it and Ihe anti-monopoly agitation
.its the success or failure of the two
jld parties. The organization of la
bor in this stalu is moro Ihorough and
iomplete than it 1ms over been before.
U ia quite certain Ihal Ihis conven-
.ion ot labor , which is lo moot in Buf-
'alo on Septumber 12 , will represent a
, 'otiiiK strength of at least fifty thous-
ind. Suvcnlv-fivo per cont. of Una
role ia democratic. If the conven-
.ion , which ia instructed to take into
( iieation thu advisability of putting n
; ickut into the field , and if deemed
ulvia.iblo to nominate i' , should go
nto independent pxixtonej , Uio
lemocrulic party ii ruined from thu
u'ginning , for it can not possibly aus-
ain the withdrawal ot thirty-live
houaaiid votes. Thu democrats
aroly learn Rnything from the lessons
> f the p'lHt.
In 1877 tlio labor party put a ticket
n the tiuli ] , and without a dollar in
ho trousury to aid in the canvass ,
wiled 30,000 votoj. That year the
lomoorlitio party barely escaped do-
oat. In 1878 labor combined wilh
ho green backora , cast 75,000 votes
md boat the democrats woefully.
I'heru is littlu greenback vote in the
itnto apart from labor , nnd this then
