WABIIINOTOX , March 9. [ Special Tele-
gram.J Tlio resolution of lleprescntallvc
Henley , which was Intioduced In the house
yesterday , to cicate a committee to Investi
gate thn Union Pacific Hillway company In
Its relation to the government , Is attracting
n great deal of attention among the officers
ot the Intel lor depaitment , under whom the
relations of the Pacllle railroads with the
government directly come. Both Secretary
Lamarand Assistant Secielary Jcnks think
that If the charges contained In the resolu
tion aie In any material degree correct , the
Investigation proposed should ceitalnly be
Inaugurated without delay. The books and
accounts of the Union Pacific company
have been examined , and It has been
found the system of keeping
the accounts of the Kansas Pacific load ,
which Is a part of the Union Pacific , elocs not
glvu an adequate approximation of tlio actual
net earnings of Its "aided" parr , 0 per cent ol
which Is eluo the government. Tlio business
ot the "aided" pait Is much In excess of that
ot the "unaided" part , but the accounts are
stated ns If they weio equal , the net catiiln c
of the entlru road being divided Into tvvc
paitsin pxiportlon to the length , thus giving
the gov eminent much less than its due.
Sccictary Lamar iccommends the load be
made to lender accounts which will show the
actual earnings and expenses of the "aided'
Another violation of the law which the de
partment has discovered on the part of the
Union Pacific is Its connection with the Pa
cific Mall Steamship company , to which I
has annually paid a subsidy In order to keoi
up thu transcontinental pool and shut of
competition in tialllc. Piior to the passage
of thu Thiirman act of 18T8 the govcinmen
was to iccuivoO per cent of that subsidy , If i
was a subsidy , and nothing of it was in tin
natuio of a lease. Fora number of yean
piIorto8T8 It Is claimed it was a subsidy
Alter tlio passage of the Thurman act tin
government was to lecclvo 25 per cent o
bitch subsidy. It is claimed by the interlo :
depaitmunt there is owing to the covcrnmen
on this account from the Union Pacific be
twcen ? roo,000 and SGOO.OOO. . Secretary Lamai
recommended to Secietary Manning that hi
proceed to collect the sum.
Henley said to-night they simply rehoarsec
tlio popular cxpicssion and belief as to tin
irrcgulaiities in thu lelutions of tlio Unioi
Pacific with tlio government. Tlio subjec
was one demanding full and piompt Invest !
gntion , and ho would appear for tlio commit
tee to-morrow to picbcnt the subject , For tin
resent the resolutions set forth all he catcs
to say in refeicncc to the matter. The ;
speak for themselves and tot fortli what hi
believes can bo i cattily sustained.
Mr. Josephs of Now Mexico , said : "Th
move to cieato a tpeclal committeatoliive'stl
itato the dealings of the Union Pacific rail
way with the government Is but the naturu
outcome ot the dissatisfaction of the wcbton
people over tlio management of the I'ajlll
lailways and their grasping nature. The in
vcstigation is a move in the light diiuctiot
and may develop some startling facts. "
Mr. Holmes of Iowa , said : "The resolutloi
Is creating considerable comment among tli
pcoplo Intoicbtcd In Union Pacific mattcu
Thu poweis to bo vested in the proposed con :
mltteo will bu very seaiclilng , and no doul
\vlllieveal some ( nicer facts. "
The sensation of thu piesldent's rcceptioi
to-night was Senator Edmund's appc.iranc
and thocoidial gieetlng ho received fiom tli
piesident. Senator Edmunds attiacted in ;
usual attention because lie entuicd at th
wiong door to the bluu room and had to pas
the line of ladles. He , however , marchoi
diicctly up to the president , nud , alter pn

A close friend ot the president Is authority
for the statement that the rumors In circula

WASIIIXOTON , March 9. Under the head
of unfinished business the senate took up the
resolution icpoitedby Mr. Edmunds from the
judiciary committee. These icsolntlons
among oilier things condemn the attorney
general for refusing to submit to the senate
pupcis culled for by tlio senate , nnd declare
that refusal to bo a violation by the attorney
general of his official duty and subversive of
the lundamuntal principles of the govern
ment and good administration. The resolu
tions also condemn the discharge from gov
ernment service of ex-Union soldiers. As
the lesolutlon was icael by the chief clerk
almost absolute silence prevailed on tlio
floor and in the gallciles. Tlio gnllciics were
ciowdcd to the apparent discomfoit of all ,
many persons being compelled to stand. This
was true of the roseivod gallery , to which
uelinlss'loii is only permitted by cards fiom
senators , many gentlemen and not a few
ladies faillii ! ? to line vacant seats.
Mr. Edmunds began his remarks in a rather
low tone , but his voice soon acquhedlts
usual full , clear , ringing volume. Ho said a
calm and orderly administration , of consti
tutional government was one In which the
icnato and house of rcin-cacntatives and the
resident and the people are equally Inter
ested , and for which they are all In tholr re
spective stations and places equally rcsonsi-
bio. It was In suppoit of that calm and
ordcily constitutional oxcicisoof the func
tions of government that he now addressed
timsclf to these resolutions , It has been
saiel that at least foi ty years have passed
inco any occasion of this kind has arlson
betvve'cn the executive elepaitmentof the gov
ernment and the senate , and when a llttl e
more than forty years ago a slmlllar but not
thu same question arose. It had been a long
time slnco any such question had c ngagccl
public attention.Instances in which
tlicio have been evinced slight reluctance
on the part of either the executive
or heads ol ! departments to respond tc
: alls ot cither the house or the senate or ol
committees for papers In the possession
cither of the executive or of the departments
have been verv few indeed. Sometimes in
case of political fever , as It might be called ,
tlieie has been evinced , wide years apart , re
luctance and hesitation on the pait of the ex
ecutive or heads of departments to do this
thing , and then , that storm being over , the
orderly administration of constitutional gov
ernment went on as before , and either house
of congress , on its request or Its doinanJ. as
the case might be , and of the committees of
cither house , coultl without dirccl
and positive authority send for persons
and papers , and always obtain from
the departments on their mere lequest every
thing they found necessary for tlio proper
discharge of their duties. Now again , after
almost half a century , the senate found Itselt
confronted by the lofusal of the head of tin
depaitment ot justice to transmit copies o
all papeis and documents relating , not te
persons but to things , relating not to officers
nut to offices on file in his depiilment.
In order that the penato might peifcctl'
understand how thu question stood ho causce
to bo icad the statutes relating to the ten tin
of. nlllco and icccsssus pensions. Mr. Edmund
thed dcllveicel an exnaustlva debate In de
tense ot Ills position.
In conclusion Mr. Edmuiuls said it did no
scorn to him that tlio senate could fail to ge
paiiers on the giound that thu statute on tin
htinjeet had become obsolete , or none into i
state of Innocuous disquietude. " [ Laughter.
The president himself hud bent to the senati
0-W instances of obedlencu to that Uivv , 041
nominations made under it , and Mr. Ed
munds thuicfoiu took it that the law wa
still In foicc.
Mr. Piurh obtained the floor , and tlio sen
ate went into executive session anel soon ad

in his legular Monday le lmo yesterday ,
Ilev. Joseph Cook talked so plainly that II
dented a scene. Ho described the reconl

chief Hull ( Sate of the woild. In the course
of Ids icmarks lie said : "I hope the day will
come when some pmo Ameiican acticss will

of the pilncc of Wales. " The np
plauso which followed this allusloi
was ininctnicd bya distinct hiss from the
gallery. Mr. Cook tin ned with an cxpiesslon
of Hiry lu that direction and shouted :
"Who is it licio that defends tliu position ol

A middle-aged Englishman sudelenly rose
nnd pointing his linger at the lecturer , said :
"Mr. Cook , I am hero to protest " but he
got no further for the audience bioko into r
rounel of applause. The man made two 01
thrco attempts to say a word , but ho was not
allowed to proceed , nud ho finally sat down
"If any Englishman hisses here , " con
tinned Cook In his severest manner , "let liln

The Situation In the South.
ST. Louis , March 0. Thcro Is no change In
the situation of the strike this morning , "flu
most Important and serious development n (
this point , and that which will result mosl
disastrously to passenger traffic , Is Its ex
tension to the yard and switchmen of the
Urldge and Tunnel company. Tfis [ inovo In
crudes oil employes or the company except
engineers and liromeii. The superintendent
of the tinnsfcr and thrco yntrt masters will
attempt to make transfers as usual. The slg-
nlllcanco of this elcpaitiito can bo beltoi
nndeistood when It Is known that B2 ;
men are employed In Imiulllnc
the trafllc which passes over the biielso , anel
it is not possible tor four mun at each end ol
the brldgo to tlmnv .switches and pcrfornl
oilier duties incidental to the business. A
Inbryinth of hacks coincide nt the entrance
to the biidgu and tunnel on both sides ot the
river , and the switches are woiked by an
automatic and comullcatcd system of lovers ,
wnlch can only bu miuiasoel by men trained
In their vise. The places ol laborers about
the yauls m'uht bo icadlly supplied , but
switchmen , skillful In the manipulation
of the switching contrivances now
employed and possessing knowledge ot In
coming and outgoing tiains , are by ex
perience , and their places cannot be sup
plied by ( { icon hands. AH fi eight trafllc
over the bridge was entirely suspended tin ?
morning , and none except passenger trains
w ° re allowed to pass over since last night.
Passenger trains arn made np by the yardmasters -
masters and biidgo superintendents , who
also do all switching necessary to bring th < > ,
trains Into position at the union depot. Each
road is obliged to use its own engines in
making tip and transferring its cars , as
noae of the bildiio engines aieinusc. The
Ihlelgo company's engineers r.avo not yet
gone out , but they i el use to do any \voik
whiclihas hilheito been done by the shop
men , such as cleaning , rcpaiiing , etc. When
ever an engine becomes injuied or its ma
chinery needs cleaning , there is no one to do
the w oik and it Is put aside. All passenger
trains from the east and west have suc
ceeded in starting out this morning , but all
Imvo boon more or less delayed on account
ol the dlfliciilty the few men in the yards
and depot experience in making up trains.
At the Missouri Pacific and lion Mountain
roads everything is quiet , and no disuu banco
occurred and none Is expected. Squads ol
guards appointed by the knights continualj !
patrol the yards.protectlug the company's
property , and disnoising jn-oups of men wlic
b'ecanie at all excited in discussing the situa
tion , and in this wuy perfect order pi avails.
A minor to tho. effect thai ) ' ali
knights employed by all roads , whicl :
have yaids in East Bt. Louiswlll btriko thJJ
evening is in circulation. This 1ms bemi
continued by ono of the superintendents ol
the Bridge and Tunnel rompany , who sayt
sucluv move is certainly in contemplation
The knights when questioned about the allair
maintain btilet silence , and wa'Uc no state
ment in continuation or denial of the ru
mor.A sub-official of the Missouri Pacific roae
said to a icpoitor-List night : "You are await
that wo aio expected to / > ay nothing and &av
wood , but I will say confidentially to youtha'
from what I know , inq extent and menu in ;
of this double is more alarming- than tin
head ofliclals would admit under any cir
cumst.inces. The men who are parttcipatinj
In this stilko uio better able now that
before to fight to the bitter end , and the com
pany cannot refuse to respond to the appeal !
of the shippers very long. I do not say thai
the strike is jiust or warranted , but I do sa ;
that It cannot bo put down asquietly and a'
quickly as could bo wished. It will not sto ]
wheio it is. There is not n , freight wheo
turning , and were it not for tlio Uliitee
States mails , it is my opinion passengc
trains would bo stopped as well. Unless i
compromise is eilectcd , the strike of 1880 wil
bo more bitterly contested than the one o
1S77. "

; lmo no cause of oilcvanco of nny

there inlnlit bo no possible cause for destroy
