Dis : MOINKS , la. , April 13. [ Special Tele-
Kiam.J The twcnty-Ilrst general nisembly
has explicit , but the closing hours in ono
branch were dl giacoful hi tlic oxtrcino. The
house of leprcscntatlvi's 1ms been a bad body
fioni Iho beginning. It has had a lot of tur
bulent statesmen , most of them licio for the
liist time , nnd nil determined to make a
cheap icpnlntlon for buncumbo nnd dcina-
UOitituiy. Without proper oiganlzallon niut
utteily devoid of leadeishlp , it has proved
itself a K'gular beer gaidcn on nmnyocca-
hloii ! < , but nuver so much M > ns to-day. A1J
tlnoiiglt the foiunoon tlieut was a geneinl
disposition to obstuict business , of which
n largo ninount had been postponed
for the closing hoius. Members paid
llttlo attention to the spiiakci's avel , ami
cnteitnlnnd themselves \\ltli all the dlsotdcr
they could I'oiuenlently lalsc1. 15ut about 1
o'clock the show began in earnest , \\hon the
ropoit of thollnys Investigating committee
was read. 'I'hcio was first tlio majoiityie-
poit , setting foith Ibo tacts wltli coinments
by thoicpubllcnn niombei.s ot thccommlttcu ;
liio then mlmiillyiepoit , showing the dissent
of the democratic members of tlio commlttco ;
nnd thlid , a supplemental repoit by lleprc-
hcntatlvo Finn , \\lio also signed the mnjoitty
icport , but made ono of his own iccommend-
ng Impeachment. Then tlio excitement be.
jtmi. llulf a do/cu nioinbois vvcto on thu
lloor at once screaming at the chair. Ono
wanted to move the adoption of
the majoilty lepoit. Another , a dein-
ociat , wanted to substitute the
inliioilty icpnit , with the lecommendatlon
tint the chaiges against Judge Hays bu dis
missed as not piovon. Somebody clso
wanted to icfer the report to the judlciniy
coiiunlltuc , and still another statesman
wanted to postpone Indefinitely nil finther
proceedings. It was app.uent by this time
that the matter was last becoming a p.uty
question , \\ith thu icpubllcans unoiganl/cd
and nuceitaln what , to do , nnd the demociats
thoioughly oiganl/eel and deteiminod to
picventany censuiu oranywoiso action on
llajs. Finally the roll call began on the
demociatlc schemes lordcleiilng the whole
matter , which \\ns the Mine as killing it , for
the luitlshiliiia was under contiact to ad
join n at a o'clock. The lopubhcans , by tbls
time , began to collect their wits and vote
solidly against tlio filibustering mo
tions , boating each of thrm. Then
tlio loll was called on the adoption of tlio
majoilly or lepubllean jeport , and belore
many names VVGIO called the demociats saw
they woio going to bo beaten , and they became -
came st.unpcdeel. Following the usual cus
tom , thu clock had been stopped. Although
it was ten minutes past 2 , the hour of linal
adjournment , tlio hands seieiiely pointed to
1:15. : Half a doyen demociats were on their
feet yelling at tlio top ot their voices to the
speaker that the vote being taken was illegal ,
as the hour for adjournment had passed.
"Regular older , " "Regular order , " shouted
the republicans , and the cluikkcpt on calling
"I piotrstpgalnst tlilspiocscdlng , " shouted
Ranch , of Iowa City , "and insist on filing a

The chair paid no attention to him , and
the cleric kept on.

lushed fiantlcally mound to tlio democratic

And the usually sed.itoi , olbrook , o afaron-
go , screamed at the top of his voice :
"I hope the minority will lofuso to vote.
Tills Is a lovolutionary proceeding. "
Tlio cleric kept on.
Thereupon young Jfr. Itobb.of Cioston.who

And the doinocuits like a Mock of sheep nil

TUP. HAYS INVESTIGATION.
The majority report of tlio Hays Invcsllga-
lon commttleo holds that "tho evidence
nlrly establishes the truth of the material
allegations In the memorial on which the In-
cstlgatlon was ordered. It recites the main
> olnts In the charges made , such as the re-
luctlon of fines in cases of old offenders ,
and condemns other practices of Hays' as
lot conducive to the ends of justice. The
minority repoit dissents from the conclu
sions of the majority , nnd holds that there
was nothing In Hays' conduct to deserve 1m-
icaclnni'iit , or even reprimand. Kopresenta-
Ivo Finn's report holds that Hays was Kiilltv
) f malfeasance and misdemeanor , nnd thcrc-
'oro recommends impeachment.
Till : HUN.VTll AS A COUNT.
After the senate hud adjourned It pro
ceeded to oiganl7o ns a couit of Impeachment

it-aims was sent for him , and accompanied

Nr.w YOIIK , April 13. [ Special Telegram. ]
The Tilbuno says : Thcio lias been no set
tlement ot the differences of the transconti
nental lines , although negotiations have not
been abandoned. The Pacilic Mall company
Insists that it will not accept less than § 100- ,
000 a month with a provision that the con
tiact cannot bo tennlnated In less than six
months' notice. It Is undeistood the rail-
toads have offeied 570,000 , a month. C. P.
Hnntlngton said , in toply to inquiries :
"Tlieio is no settlement in sight. I have pro
posed a soil of sliding scale for the i'aellic
Mail subsidy to bo vailed according to the
conditions of business. It begins at 570,000
per month , and under no clicumstances Is it
to exceed SS.1,000 , the amount of the piovious
payment. V/c would never consent to taiso
the amount to § 100,000 , for the tendency is
towaids lower lather than higher raloi.
A pioinlncnt dliector ot the Steamship
company said : "I am sure that there are not
over two members of the boatd who would
vote to accept 570,000 per month , and it is
doubtlul if amajoiity could bo obtained in
l.ivor of the former subsidy. "

CAI.I.II : ) ON TIII : i'jiisimNr. : :
Ilepicsimtatlvo Weaver and Captain Dell
of Iowa , called upon President Cleveland
WASHINGTON , Apill 13. Mr. Plait tooh
the Hoar on his tesolution lelatlng to open
executive sessions. The question was a po >
litlcal one , ho said , but in no sense was it n
question of partv politics. It rose above all
patty questions. It was the most Important
question of administrative reform to whlcli
the senate could at tills time devote its atten
tion. Mr. I'latt read the senate rules re
latin : ; to executive sessions , including
the ruin which prohibits the disclosure by
cither senators or senate ollicers of the secret ;
of executive sessions , the penalty of which 1 :
hat senators render tncnisclvcs liable to ox-
mlslou and ofllccrs to ellscbargc. No senator ,
10 said , could hear this rule without a sense
of personal elcffrcdatlon. The first instance
ot secrecy hav Ing been imposed on senators ,
Mr. Platt said , occutrcd In January , Ib20.
Mr. Morrlll asked whether It was not a fact
hit prior to that time all sessions of the senate -
ate had been held witli closed doors.
Mr. Plntto said ho would come to that by
nnd by. Ho said the public sentiment ot the
country demanded that the senate doors
should bo opened , as the rule for the consid
eration of executive nominations. Ills pres
ent resolution was thftt executive nomina
tions bo considered with open doors , except
when otherwise orelcrcd by the senate.
The scnatois themselves ought to dcslio th.it
their constituents should know what the sen
ate was doing. The principal objection to
: ho proposed eliango was that It was against
the custom of the senate. That was no argu
ment. No great measure of reform had ever
uade progiess that It did not make it over
.lie ramparts of tradition and custom. Mr.
I'latt lev-lowed the history of secret legisla
tion. He spoke on the icsolutlon to con
siderable length. Public sentiment , ho
said , and the sentiment ot the press , was
'or oion sessions. It was the sentiment of
he people that the scnatois should desire to
enow. The public wish was to bo law.
After follow ing in this fctiain lor some time.
Mr. Platt took the stand that elv 11 sen Ice was
i mockciyand sham , without even a coil-
ildciutlun of the nominations for olilcos
undo to the senate.
SWlicn Mr. Platt had concluded his 10-
narks Mr. Itutlci obtained unanimous con-
-.pntto . address the soiiatu after the moining
business to-moriovv on the subject of open
executive session1 * .
Mr. Locati desiied to follow Mr. Butler on
.ho same subject.
The fisheiles lesolutlon was then placed
bofoio the senate nud Mr. Five took the lloor.
After considerable debito Mr. Kijo's icso-
utlon was biought to n vote
and agiecd to yeas M , nays 10.
On the atllimative vote twenty-six weieie-
nihlican and nine dcmociatlc , the democrats

The resolution dcelares It tobu the Reuse of
: ho senate that congress should not provide
lor any joint commission to consider nnel
settle tlio lislieiies question.
The inter-state commeico bill was then
placed bofoie th-s senate in order that it may

After an executive session the senate ad-
The Ohio contested case of Hind vs. Ito-
meis was called ns a special order. Mr. Dovlo
opened the debate In suppoit of the minoilty
toport. and quoted from the ovidencu to sup
port him In his position. There was not only
no giound foi unseating llomcis , but scarcely
uiy ground foi contesting the seat. It has
been alleged somewhere that the action of
certain members of the committee has been
contiolled by a dillerenteot opinion with
the contestant upon certain questions upon
which the dcmociuHc pirty was not a unit ,
if he thought that hnd thu slightest weight in
tlio determination of this question ho would
despise hiniselt loievor.

TWO MINORITY UKPOllTS.
Opinions About tlio Government's
Power to Annul Patents.
WARHINOTON , April 13. Two reports by
tlio minority of the judiciary committee ,
upon the resolution submitted to that com
mittee Inquiring Into the power of the gov
ernment to Institute suit at the Instance of
private coiporatlons to annul patents , wore
presented to the house to-elny. The first re
port , which Is signed by Messrs , Barker ,
Taylor , Hepburn and Caswoll , after nn ex
haustive review of precedents , arrived at the
following conclusions :
Kit st. That the authority lo cancel or an
nul the patent of an Invention or discovery
In a suit between private parties , on tlio
ground that the same was ebtalned by fraud
ulent collusion with an olUccr of the govern
ment , or surreptitiously by or upon false MIR-
gestlon , does not exist.
Second. That the public Interests icquho
that the authority should e\l t In the gov
ernment , under inoper icstilrllnn , to bilng
suit In the name of the United St.tte.s to
lepeal and annul any such patent .so ob
Thiid. That under the statutes and deci
sions of thu United States It Is a matter of
gin\o doubt whether the authoiily now exists
peimlttlng suit by the United States to annul
any patent as aboui stated , which doubt can
only bo deteimlned by a decision of the couit
ot last lesoit.
1'Vunth. That In case It shall bo authora-
tlvely decided that the light to hi Ing suit for
the cancellation ol.i patent claimed to have
been obtained by fiuudulent collusion with
olllcers of tlio government , or suiieptltlously
by or upon ialso suggestion , now tests with
nh olllei'r of the government acting upon ills
own motion or nt the instance ol another ,
accoullng to ids judgment , oral his pleasuio
to attack , in tlio namu and at the oxpe'ii o ot
tlio United Statesany patent now In life , or
such as may nt nnytimu exist , with no re
straint or limitations except such as shall an-
nettnin to judicial proceedings alter tlio suit
is commenced. It is a power and responsi
bility that congiess should place , deliuo and
restflct. That in case It shall bo decided Unit
no authority exists on the part of any oniccr
or dcpaitmont of the covcinmcnt to institute
such a suit , It is equally the duty of congiess
to establish and limit such power. This
minority recommends the enactment of a bill
confeiiing the necessaiy power upon the at-
toiney gonuinl to bring suit at the leanest of
the secietaryof tlio Intel lor , In which no
issue shall bo litigated that can be deter
mined In a private suit.
Messrs. Unnnoy and J. W. Stnwait unlto
in tlio second ininoiity leport , holding that
tlieio is noantliinity for afiiit In the name
of tlio United States biought for the muposo
ot vacating a patent lor an Invention , ex
cept when ( t is based upon a statement of lacts
wlileh cannot be icgaided by the couit and
nmdo available In nn intiingcmi'iit suit ; and
that in no case c.in tlio name of the govein-
ntent bo piopcilv lent to a suitiu the Inteiest
