Boone was recalled in the star route
trial to-day ,
The defense having objected thai
the evidence of productiveness did not
como down to a recent date , the oourl
replied that If they thought the ]
could show that Brady was co fai
Blghted as to porcolvo that the ex
podltod routes would be produotlvt
within a few years , ho ought certalnl ]
have credit for that course. Ingorsol
declared that , as a matter of fact
there was not a star route west of thi
Mississippi that was not operated at i
loss. He referred to the early days o
the overland routes , when the govern
TOont carried at the rate of $1
a letter , for which they now receive *
three cents. Ho inquired how the ;
were to draw a line ? The court quote
the limitation Imposed by law upon ei

The clerk of' the court of commis
sioners of the Alabama , claims has
made a partial estlmato of the amount
involved in the claims now pending ;
2,200 caaes out of 5,700 are filed , ag
gregating nearly 914,000,000 without
interest. If the judgment were
awarded for the amount claimed in
those cases the interest would aggre
gate $20,000.000. It will thus bo
soon the court has no difficulty dispos
ing of the remainder of Iho Geneva

has now under consideration two
questions of Interest , first whether in
certain cases the awards shall bo made
upon a gold or currency baaia , ( having

WASHINGTON , March G , A noted
member of the lobby , who has boon
haunting the halls of the capital for
many yoara , waa asked to-day what
ho thought of congress , and at lust ho
answered in a melancholy manner :
"Tho present session of oongroao haa
been a most disastrous ono to the
Inbby and to varied interests , public
and private , through the country.
The defeat of the Southern Pacific
bill gave black eyes In all directions.
It destroyed all bargains and combina
tions which had boon formed for its
passage and many schemed foil through
with it , An nnfortnnato thing for all
is that this tariff legislation was de
layed BO long. It has crowded every
thing out at the close of congress , and
is not a very creditable bill after all ,
