papers In tlio case of tlto ni > ] ) olntincntsof
licnorals Hovvaid and Terry to tlielr present
ranks. The president very soon learned that
although Hovvaid's commission as brigadier
general antedates that of General Terry In
Hie ni my register , the latter was really promoted
meted soinu two months befnio tlio former ,
and that tlio commission of General Howard
\\asdated back In oulcr that he might rank
as a brigadier from the date of the snneiidcr
of Savannah , December 21,1SOI , in which ho
took a gallant part It was not done to In-
jmeUcncial Teiry In any manner , btit as a
slmpli ) reward for ( Scncml liovvaid's service.
Senator Sabln and .Mayor Straight iccently
called upon the picsldent In Tony's buhalf
and submiltul these facts to his considera
tion , but leained that the incident had
nhcady posted lilm.-cir upon the lads ,
and they came away convinced thathc would
be eoveined by them In making tlio appoint-
mcnt to siicccedCieneial Hancock. Howard
will without doubt be nominated to succeed
( ieneral Pope when that olllccr rcllios one
" A , week trom next Tuesday , and It Is probable
' that ho will bo ouleml to theroinmand of the
Division of the Atlantic , wlilIeUeiioialTcuy
will bo placed In commandof the Division of
the I'acllle , which Isconsldeied the most Im-

Is that ( Jcneral Tciry will bo confirmed at
once , as the military committee Is known to
favor him. .His appointment gl\es general

The statesmen who uigcdthochangoln the

prlallon bi'ls ' might got in earlier aie not
vciy highly gmtllicd with the icsnlt. An
examination ol the journal of the house
shows tlmt the appiopilation bills have not
boon In so backwmda state in n long session
for the past ten years as at the piesent time
under the new inles. Only lonrappiopriation
bills have yet been lepoitcd and no action
had on any of them.

that time she was a child of 14 veais , and her
experiences while in the custody of the In

1101-82.500 , and will in all piobability pass on
the Hist in Ivuto bill day that shall be i cached ,
Abbey Sharp Is now living atJLako Okoboji ,
It is the general belief iicie that the Blair
educational bill \ \ III bo defeated. Its friends
in thohouse aio fewer than they were a few
months ago , notwithstanding tlie action of
thobcnato to-night. The advocates of the
proposition , who place a picmlnm on
Illiteracy , have found enemies In all sections
of the eountrj , and the members have lately
been flooded with newspapers piotestlng
against It fiom .sections in which Senator
Bhir thought himself the most powerlnl.
The north and west have been paitlciilarly
emphatic in condemning the bill , and the
south Is by no means united In Its Mippoit.
President Cleveland sent to the speaker of
the house of icprcscntativos to-day a bill pio-
paied by the secretary of the inteiior provid
ing for icappraisemcnt and sale of a tract of
land In Nebraska belonging to the Sac and
Fox Indian rcseivatlon. Tlio appiaisemcnt made at 5.10 an acie , which Is found to
boexcessive. The bill just picpaicd gives
the hceietary of the Interior authority to re-
apinalsc the l.uul and sell it to the highest
bidder at not less than the appraised value.
Thopiocccdrt arising liom the sales shall bo
applied to the bunt-lit of tlio tribe.
Mr-Tapper , of Usage , Iowa , who repio-
bents the National Piotectlvo Butter associa
tion , went to Now Yoik to-night to confer
with the committee Interested in the passage
ot the bill to icstiict the saio of bogus butter.
Mr. Tupperbays that ho Is confident that a
bill can bo gotten through which
will not only compel the inannfactuieis
of , and dealeis In , this matenal to brand
their waics , but lie Icels ceitaln that It will
bo possible to seem o an act taxing It at the
rate of ton cents a pound.
The sub-committee on tlio Dawes bill ,
throwing open the Sioux icsei vatlon In
Dakota to bcttlcment , have agieed to i eport the
bill bark to the full committee with some
minor amendments. It will probably como
up In the latter commltteo next Monday or
Tuesday , and It Is the belief of the sub-coin-
mlttoii that it will bo ngiccd to and favorably
lepoitcd to tlio house.
In executive session quite n discussion
nioso over an adverse lepoiton the nomina

imidu to 1111 a vacancy created by suspension.
Then there wore mimeiou.s chaigea agaliibt

the nomination was laid on the table , which
Is equivalent to lejectlon.
A favomble lepoit was to-day made by the

fact that Senator Van Wjck has been exces

by the attaches of the British legation has
been commented upon by neaily every news-

a good deal on this account by his associates
In the bcnate , Hu was asked the other dav
why ho illd not avail himself of the consti

an end to the balking buites with a leaden

The cat' itiu sjiucih of Senator intallb In
ll.nbcnatc.ut ) , In which hu arraigned
those of his conrcrei who arc constantly
thrusting the constitution against almost
every measure which Is proposed , tins been
the subject of a great deal of discussion and
the cause ofery many reminiscences among
congressmen dining the past week. A Now
York member , \\hosenod In the senate of
the Empho state , tells a rather good sloiyon
"Tim" Campbell of New Yoik In this con
nection. Ho "aid that some jcars ace the
Honorable "Tim" had n bill In the Now Yoik
senate which ho was very anxious to have
pr.Sjed. The senator fiom the Twenty-llflh
district arose to oppose the bill on constitu
tional ground * , when Iho Jlon. "Tim , " ad-
drcsslnc him , said : "Will the gentleman
from tlio Tvvcnty-llftli allow mo to ask him a
question ? " Thcptlvllego was granted , and
"Tim"continued : "Pliat has the constitu
tion to do wld n question between frlns ? "
Ills appeal was successful , and amid the
lauijli which followed , the bill passed In splto
of tlio constitution.

The probable lejectlon of the nomination
of Judge Mcilick as one of Iho judges of the
supreme court of tl.o District of Colum
bia calls to mind the cause of his
icmoval fiom the bench some twenty
3 cars ago. Kx-Congiessman Spinner
of New York had been appointed
ticasuier of the United Slates , and lie went
to one of the judges to take the oath of ofllce.
The judge , who was a southcin man and a
hcaity southern sjnipatlilrcr , icfic-ed to
administer the oatli because Spinner
was distasteful to the southcin ele
ment by reason of his abolition
speeches In the house. Upon the refusal to
administer the oath the old gentleman be
came \oiy angiy , and went out saving , "Per
haps theio is nothing in the constitution to
compel you to administer the oath to me ,
and , peihaps , congiess cannot compel yon to
do so , but congiess can put you out of ofllce ,
and 1 will see that It does so. " A bill was
Intiodnccd In the house a few days alter
abolishing the supreme comt of the dlstiict
of Columbia , and among Its wannest advo
cates was Mr. Spinner , who had been
sworn in as United States ticasurcr. The
bill passed , the couit was abolished , and It
was leoigatiUed under a subsequent law by
the appointment of men whose sympathies
weie not .stiong enough to Induce them to 10-
fuse tocai iy out the duties for vv hldi they wei o
appointed. The objection to Judge MenIck
among tlie senators Is that ho Is now so old
that lie will icach the ago of rctiiemcnt
within a vciy few
AVAsntxoTox , March y. The chair laid

Mr. Kvaits presented the petition of the
otllcers and trustees ot the savings banks ot
New Yoiu state , piaylng congress to stop the
coinage of the silver dollar. It was icfeiied
to tlie committee on linance.
Mr. Uiddleberger ottered a resolution ,
which was aciced to , re'iuliing each senatoi
to lepoit to the senate the name of his pi hate
secietaiy. In Intiodiicing the resolution
Mr. Itlddlebergcrsaiit that some men weie
holding tickets of admission to tlio senate
lloor who would not bo admitted to the par
lors of a gentleman's icsldcnce. Such tick
ets weie so Issued to people who received no
pay except admission to tlie senate lloor to
blackmail gentlemen to libel them in their
newspapers. .Mr. Itlddlebcigcr said ho knew
of a case In point. We know what had been
said in the house of lepiesontatlves about
Kails being on the lloor of that lieu c. Ho
asked II It weie peniilssab'o ' for him ( Hlddlo-
bcrger ) to state that while Kads had not
been on tlio lloor of the senate ho bad had
three henchmen theie two ieprc enting re
publican new spapeis and ono a democratic
newspaper whoc.imo to sectno inloimatlon
on which to libel senators. Imaginn having
a ticket to the .senate lloor In the pictended
capacity of private secietary to a senator ,
which senator bad his own BOH as Ids pil\ato
becretaiy , who dicw the pay , while the other
creatuio was compensated by u ticket.
Alter the adoption of the icsolution Mr.
Hoar had It lecunsldeied and amended so as
to have the names sent In to the becielary of
the senate.
The education bill was then taken up , and
Mr. Hairison spoke In advocacy ot the bill
and In opposition to Mr. Allison's amend
An amendment offered by Mr. Hoar to the
amendment of Mr. Allison was tigiecd to ,
piovldlngtlMt Ino.ich state havingscpaiato
whltu and coloieil schools , the money re
ceived by such Ntnto under the bill hliould bo
apportioned and applied in thopiopoitlonot
illiteracy of the two races le.siiectlvely , until
an equal sum per capita shall lia\obecn ap-
propilated fiom national and Mate funds ;
andilcclailng the object of the bill to bo to
.secure equal advantages to all chlldien of
w batovcr color or i ace.
Mr. Kdmnnds then moved a substitute for
the amendment as amended. The substitute
is as tollow.s : "And In each btato and teul-
toiy In which thcrohliall be sopaiate schools
lor white and coloied ehlldiun , the money
paid In such btate or teuitoiy shall bo appoi-
tioned and paid out lor the suppoit ot such
white and coloied schools lespectlvely , In the
piopoitlon that the white and coloied dill-
dten between the age-sol 10 and 21 years in
such state or ten I lory bear to each oilier , as
shown by thi ) census of lbb ( ) . Tlio foiegoing
piovislon shall noteifect the application of a
projici pioportlon of Mild money to the snp-
poit of all common schools wherein no dis
tinction of race or color shall o\Ut. "
Mr. Kdimuuls addressed the senate In sup
port of this amendment.
Mr. Logan bald theie seemed to bo a greater
desire tobe consldeied the champion ot some
kind ot a bill that would bo called an educa-
cation bill than to liiuo ono tlmt would pro
duce the icsult contemplated. He ( Logan )
wab as silicon ) n fi lend of tlio colored race as
nny senator on thu floor. Ho ( Logan ) had
Intioduced two of these education bills In
Ibb * , ono In IbsS , and ono In IhSi , Ho had
appealed bctoro the education committee of
the bcnato In older to make some biigges-
tlons , but soon came to tlio conclusion that
what little hu had to say would luuo no oiled
on tlio mind of tlmt committee. , and
thai the icsiilt would bo what it
over had been that the shrewdness
and bhaipnc.Sb of the men on that committee
fiom south ot the line would get the veiy
ad\antages that by this bill they eventually
had got. Foimeily. Logan said , the colored
people of the .south cnvo leprescntation to
congress and In tha electoral college based on
the ihiee-tiflhs principle , iiowwas It now ?
Tlioiepienentation was based on the whole
number ot colored and white people Acnl-
nied man counted the same a * a white man.
On that principle the southern presenta
tion In thueltvtoi at college and In congress
was enlarged , but to wliat end ? When It
came tootlng when * were the colored
people ? Mississippi had n white voting pop
ulation of iftJ.rjbO and a colored \otlng
population of JSOU70-that is to tai\
about 80,000 majority of colored votes.
How many men voted in Mississippi ? Only
ieo.000 , jn t 10XX , ) more Ilian there weio while
uilci * . Wkat that \oto meant and tliowed
Mr. Logan would not bay. He did uot think ,
however , that It was for want of education thccoloied peoplu abstained from votlntr.
They w tie counted w hencver greater political
power would eomn to thu wl.lte men by
couutlu ; ; them ; tliey wcw not counted as
voters. When election day came no man
said to the colored voter , "Stand up and be
counted. "
The same principle , Mr. Logan continued ,
ran through tide school bill as repotted fiom
the committee. What for ? Kor money. For
whom ? Was it for themselves ? Oh , no : It
was the old story , and uoithcin men had
alwajs been found In congiess willing to
legislate on the coloied man for the benefit
of the while man , If money waste
to bo taken from the ticasnry on
the basis of the coloied race , In God's nanio
let the colored people gel tlielr pioportlon of
It. That was the object of the amendment
proposed bv the senator from Iowa ( Allison ) ,
but the bill would accomplish nothing as It
stood because the amount Was too small.
What was § 7,000,000 the lirst year when dis
tributed around among the states ? At pres
ent In some poitlons of Iho south , school
could not bo kept open more than lour
months. The piovlsfon of the bill would
add \ery little to that- Hence ho ( )
proposed to nmko the llrst ) ear's appropria
tion SIOooo,000 Instead of 87,000,000 , incieas-
Ing the amount each i car for H\e j oars and
then decreasing It , until In ten years tlio
amount evpendeil would bo Siw,000,000. :
This amount was cnonnlitoaccomplish some
thing. Decides his amendments Included a
scpaiate fund of 52,000,000to aid in the build
ing of school houses In sections of country in
which the local community mlghtbe too poor
to stand all the expense ot building. SchoolIng -
Ing could not be got without school houses.
Hut the gcneial government should super
vise this thins In some way , Ho ( Logan )
favoied a commission for tlmt puipo e not
to presetIbe what should be taught , or
to Inteifcie with schools , but to
-co wheio the moimy went to.
Thcic seemed , however , to bo n disposition
to pass the bill w Ithont the amendment , even
If it did no moie good than thiowing money
into H pool. 11 the senatoi from New Hamp
shire ( iilaii ) wanted to analgn him ( Logan )
before either the noitiicin or .southorn people
ple for wanting this amendment , ho could do
so. The time would come , Logan said , when
gicat wilteis , oratois , poets and musicians
would be found belonging to the coloied lace.
We should reach our light hand to these people
ple stiuggllng down in the pit ot daikncss
and despair ; wo should llftthein up and give
them a lair and equal chance.
Mr. Hlalr was willing to accept Mr. Ed
munds' Mibstltutoloi the Allison amendment ,
and it wasagiecd to.
Mr. Dolph moved to amend by providing
that the bill should not take ellect till two-
thiids of the states should accept its piovls-
lons. It was i ejected.
Mr. Doliih called up the yeas and nays on
his amendment , and pending the calls the
senate went Into executive session , and when
tliodoois ic-opeiied adjourned.

Nr.nnASKA CrrvNeb. , March a ( Special. ]
Among the 120 cases that will occupy the
attention ot the district court In this city at
Its next setting , which commences on the
COlh of this mouth , none perhaps will draw
more attention than thu ono docketed Wil
liam Hawkos Sadie Haw Ice , application
fordlvoice. The high standing socially and
othciwlsc of the plaintllT's ' foimer ciiclc ,
the lepoitcd dlsinhciltaiiccby tlio father of
the son on account of this maulagc , together
with the prominence of tlio defendant as the
dhoieud wlfi'or oncot Omaha's piomlucnt
meichants , Mr. A. ( Gladstone , all tend to the
diaw Ing of public attention to this now phase
In the life of the two pitndpals In the com
ing suit.
The readers of the Ur.i : have already been
Infoimcd that on Febiuary 3 , lb > 0 , William
Hawkc tiled his petition In the dlstiict comt
of the county , piaylng for a dUoico on the
ground of extieme ciuclly. Since that date
conjcctuio after conjeduic , icpoit followed
by lepoit , have been put ulloat as legaids
what course the defendant would take , some
saying the breach would bo bildged over , while
others ! m\o gl\cn It as their opinion that the
piayer as applied for In the plaintiffs peti-
tlllon would go before the court without any
contest on the pai't of the defendant , but to
day surmises , lepoiis and conjectuies asre-
gaids the action of the defendant received a
check In the tiling of thu defendant's an
swer to said petition fordlvoico In tlio dls
tiict clerk's olllco of tlio county. The answer
conipnses about live pages of legal cap. The
defendant , in answerdenies that she has ever
been guilty ol extiemo ciuelly , or that the
plaintiff has over since tlielr marriage con
ducted himself toward her as a tine and faith
ful husband. The answer then goes on to
chaigo Iho plaint ! ! ! with the excessive use of
Intoxicating liquors , and that his conduct at
such times tended to destioy her peace and
happiness and Impair her bodily health.
"And that tiie said plainlllf had ever since
said man iage gi ossly.crnolly anil wantonly re-
tused and neglected to provide the defendant
with suitable and proper clothing ; that never ,
at any time since said man Iage , has ho given
deloiidant any aitlelo of clothing ; that de
fendant has been forced 1o sew and embroi
der to cam money to puichaso her wealing
appaiel. " Alter ictuting the chaiges
made by plaintift In his petition to
tlio effect that she had at divers
times lefuscd to pieparo his meals for
him , Mis. Hawko concludes her answer as
follows : "That the plalntllf , utterly icgaid-
less of the duties and affections of a husband ,
has lett their home williout any cause or pro
vocation on defendant's pait , and has left
the defendant penniless and homeless , and
without one morsel of food. That she hits'
donated her cntlic time , energy and labor for
the comfort of her husband and the happi

Nr.vv YoiiK , March ! ! . [ Special Telegram. ]
The Sun this moinlng prints a long ed-
Itoilal under the heading oP'ThcPicsUtent
and the Democrats , " I'lom which the follow
ing extracts mo made : "The time has come
for plain and honest speech. The hope of
bettering a bad condition of things by patient
forbearance , by appiobatlon for all that
could be appiovcd , and byadesho to avoid
eveiy cause of probable dlillculty , has In
duced the dcmociats to withhold tiuth that
can no longer be piopeily concealed from
public view. Candid consideration of them
may possibly piovldo a lemcdy for the exist
ing evils. A year has passed away since
Cleveland was Inaugmatcd as president
under cheoifnl and oncouiaglng auspices.
Tlio paity was united and the out
look was satlsfactoiy when ho en-
teied the white house. The situation to-day ,
as compaied with what It was on the 4th of
March , 1885 , Is sadly altered. It is not neces
sary to Inquho into the causes which have
biought about this chango. The fact exists
that tlicie Is no coidlal confidence , familiar
communication , or political cohesion between
the piestdent and the democrats In congiess.
They have been drifting apait gradually until
It may be said the line of sepaiatlon between
them has become broad and maikcd. The
piesldent's want of experience In national
atlalrs and his slight acquaintance with
public men , aio doubtless icsponslbie
for some ottho cnois Into which no was un
consciously misled in tlio beginning of Ills
new cares. In a limited redistribution of
pationago the president lias suffered as all
hlsplcdecessorsof late years have sulleicd ,
by either wilful or accidental deception.
Discovery of tills practice made him suspi
cious in other cases , and by slow degiees a
mutual distiust has giown up which now ap
pears as threatening danger to the democ
racy. „
A scries of singular successes In his brief
earcei has undoubtedly pioduccd a belle ! In
the president's mind that his whole course
has been acceptable to the people , and that
however politicians may disagree witli him ,
ho Is always sure of that support. This be-
llet strengthens the sclt-asscrtton which
seems to be natural to his character , and is
liimly and bluntly maintained against
arguments and mild piotestatlons when dlf-
feicnces aio discussed. Hence it is giatity-
ing to know that a confeicncc between ac
credited lead cis and the president will soon
take place , at which the point of disagiee-
ment will be frankly discussed and with
hopes ot-a clearer iiiidcibtaiiding. Whoever

Inllroads Rlotlnc on
Ctitrxoo , III. , March a [ Special Tclo-
pram.J No change In passenger rates to St.
Paul or Council Bluffs was made > esterday
by any lines Interested In that business , but
the opinion picvalls that rates will etgo
considerably lower than they now aio befoio
the war is over. The Uock Island feels rather
sore over the continued efforts ot the St. Paul
and Illinois Central loads to puichaso tick
ets of the Bock Island Issue at scalpers' ofllco
at i educed rates to find a pretext for cutting
rates still further. In older to get even and
piovo that tickets oxer competing Hues aio
being sold at ov en lower tales than the Illinois
Central claimed to have bought
over the Bock Island from scalp
ers , and official of the Bock Island
went the rounds of the scalping offices jcs-
teiday and succeeded In uurohaslng a ticket
over the St. Paul fiom Chicago to St. Paul
forS8.80. St. John ot the Hock Island had
an aflldavlt made by the party pin chasing the
ticket to piovctho genuineness of the Irans-
lion , which he sent to the St. Paul people , to
gether with a note advising them in accoid-
ance with their policy to meet the Bale ot any
ticket sold by the scalpers with a similar rate
over the counters ot tlielr regular offices , they
ought to make at once an open rate to SI.
PaulofS8.50. St. John has not > el decided
whether to adopt the SS.r.0 . late as the basis of
the rate to all points west and noith of SI.
Paul and Council BlulK
It Is gcncially admitted that the present
policy of the loads Inteiested In SU Paul
business is calculated topiolong the Mar In
definitely , and that It would bo far better If
the waning roads would at once reduce rates
to St. Paul or Council Bluffs to about 55 or
less , as this would bring matteis to n focus
and hasten a speedy settlement of the exist
ing dinicul.lcs.
It is stated the St. Paul and Noithwestern
aio now considering tlio advisability of
hoitcninc tlio running time of their
trains between Chicago and St. Paul
from eighteen to fourteen hours. If
this Is done the Bock Island will
have no other , nlteinatlvo left than to
meet the shorter time by its compctitois with
a coircspondlng icductlon of r.ites. Under
these clicumstanccs It Is claimed the only
way out of the existing complications is al
lowing tlio Bock Island adillcientlal late.
This no doubt will bo the ultimate solution
of the problem , but before it is done the St.
Paul and Noithwestern will make a deter
mined effort to bicak up the commission sys
tem which they think is icsponsiblo for the
piesent tionbics. Tlio Bock Island Is so
stiongly In favor of the system that it will
not abandon It without a scvcio struggle.

Judge llnyes' Impeachment.
Dr.s MOINKS , Iowa , Match a [ Special
Teleitram.J Tlio house devoted Iho whole of
to-day to an animated debate on the question
of Impeaching Judge Hayc * . The ca o came
tip under a majority lepoit of the judiciary
committee , iccoinnicndlng an Investigation
of the chaigcs against him with a view to
Impeachment. The minority report lecom-
niends dropping the subject without further
action , Alieady It Is appaient that whatever
is done will have to bo done as a paitlsan
measuie. 'Hie commltteo reports were made
on party Hues. The debate to-day as inado
on paity lines , with ono exception , Major
Thompson , n lepnbllcan , opposing the Inves
tigation , but In general none but
republicans favor the Investigation and none
but democrats oppose It. The action of the
democrats Is In strange contrast to their
couisoa month ago. When Auditor Brown ,
n icpnblican , was tinder criticism , they were
ravenous for an Investigation , even though
It lead to impeachment. Now , with a demo
cratic judge undei Hie , they are solidly op
posed to any Innuhy Into ills conduct , and
tight it inch by inch.
Tlio prosecution was led to-day by Bcpic-
sentatlve Weaver of llardln county and the
deienso by Colonel Keatley of Council Bluffs.
Tlio former , In his opening speech , said thera
weio two { impositions which , If true , would
justify impeachment. Fhst , that Jiulgo
Haves conuptly abused the dis
cretion vested in him by as
sessing punishments. Second , that
ho exceeded the jurisdiction of his office. Ho
is cluuged with n coirupt combination with
the district attorney to charge and collect
fees moio than should have been charged.
He Is clmigcd with dlscouixginLr : a plea oE
guilty. I such plea Is given , lie rcnuois
judgment forS100 and costs. Attoinoy lor
the accused objects. Hayes scratches out Iho
judgment. Tlio plea Is cnteicd not guilty.
Nodcfcnso Isoircicd , and a line of S.'i is Im
posed. It is further charged that in eveiy
way possible ho has biought his influ
ence , by leason of his high olllce , to bilnp :
the law Into dlslavor. It becomes Judge
Hayes , If ho believes the law a bail
one , and ought not tobe cnloiced , to fcsljm
his olllco and not use It lor the purpose that ho .
has. He should ticnt the law against selling
Illinois as he would the law against larceny ,
assault and battciy , or any other .statute In
our code. Ho might make the line light for
the fiist offense , but It one should bo aiiested
and biought back time and again , week after
week , ho would bo n strange judge , Indeed ,
who would let him go on Ills own recogniz
ance. Alohas so used his dfcciotion that wo
must believe he has used his power to shield
the criminal Instead of punishing him , and
as such ho should bcanswciablo to the high- tribunal in the hind.
Mr. Kent ley followed Mr. Weaver , saying
that ho rccognl/cd theimpoitaiicenndgravity
of the duty of the house at this stage of the
pioccedlngs. Ho coincided with his oppon
ent ( Weavei ) in totting aside all vnrtlsan
feeling. It has been claimed here , ho con
tinued , that In uiglng the rlghtfnlncss of the
majority lopoit , tlmt theio Is no bound to tlio
rights of this house In detei mining whether j
Hayes should appear befoio the senate and
answer to tlie chaigcs In the memorial. Ha
( Keatley ) stood etlrely : uninfluenced by
any body or peison. Ho had never mcb
Hayes but once , fifteen years ago ,
and knew nothing of tlio charges
until reading the memorial. Ho wanted to
dlschaign his duties In a conscientious man
ner and with that end In view had given the
subject carelul study. He would ask the In
dulgence of tlio house as to time. Tills body
owed it to itself that befoic voting articles of
impeachment to the .senate lo take time for n
most thorough Investigation. Theio Is no
countiy under the sun having a coint of Im
peachment llko our own except among Kn-
glish speaking people , i'ho matter of Im
peachment was not of rapid ijiowtli , but of
slow grow th. Aseailyas 1H13 the Impeach
ment ol public ofliccis was known.
The cntlio afternoon was consumed in thlb
debate , both sides making very earnest'
speeches for and against a luither investiga
