Dnlon Pacific and tlio Government.
WA xii i NOTON , Nov. 29. [ Special Telegram
lo fhe Uii.1 : The government directors of
Iho Union Pacific railway have tiled their
nnmial report with the secictnry of the In
terior , by whom It will bo-rent to congress.
The report contains little that Is now and In
teresting and the recommendations aie but a
reiteration of those tlmt were made last year.
They recommend Iho passage of the bill now
pending In congress for the lofundlng of the
Indebtedness of the government and prefer
that which was Introduced by Mr. Hoar In
the senate and Mr. Oulhwalto In the house.
The directors discuss at length the various
propositions tlmt Imvo been made for the set
tlement of the Indebtedness to the govern
ment and ask for this legislation In order
tlmt the controversy that has been existing
HO long may be settled once and forever with
out future trouble for cither congress or the
courts. The company under the Hoar bill
would simply Imvo to nmko Its semi-annual
pa > montsorloso nil Its property , and the
amount nt risk by the government would
grow less and the security for Us payment
greater year by year. The directors recom
mend that the period for the final payment
be fixed at eighty years Instead of sixty years ,
as originally proposed In the
Hoar bill , but suggests no further modifica
tion. This bill provides and directs
the secietary of the treasury to ascertain the
Indebtedness to the government of the
various subsidised railroad companies on the
1st of April next. It provides fuilhcr that
the railway companies shall Issue bonds of ,
redemption to the secretary of the treasury
ono of which shall mature every six months ,
nnd tlmt each of them shall bo for a sum
equal to the ICOth part of the Indebtedness
of the railway company , with Interest at the
rate ot ! i per cent. The company Is authorised
to anticipate the payment of these bonds of
redemption. In case of the failure to pay
any of the said redemption bonds It shall bo
secured and held by the president of thu
United States to make all tlio bonds duo and
payable at once , and It shall be tlio duty of
the attorney general to take such steus ns
nmy bo necessary to protect the Interests of
the United States and before the stipulation
of the contract. The directors recommend
tlmt In any new legislation the amount ot tlio
annual payment shall bo a fixed sum , to bo
paid absolutely without regard to net earn
ings , gross earnings , or any contingency
whatever. Under the existing law the
annual payments of the company are
made to depend upon the "net earnings , "
which Is a term so vague and indefinite that
it will require a decision of a court to deter
mine Us meaning , Tlie directors also rec
ommend that when this change Is made the
restriction upon the final operations of the
company Intended to protect the annual net
earnings shall bo removed , so tlmt the com
pany may not bo icstiained thereby In the use
of Us ciedlt. It Is also urged as to tlie com
pany and to the United States , Us principal
debtor , tlmt congress shall pass a bill permlt-
tlin : the Union Pacific to occupy adjoining
teirltory with Iiranches , so that U may not bo
left behind by Its ilvals and be deprived of
important connections. Tlio lion of the
government uuon the property should bo ex
tended , but under that condition the com
pany should bo nt liberty to develop and ex
tend Its system.

There will bo verv little committee work In
congiess this winter. The time is too short
to consider measures which have not already
been nollccd and reported by committees. It
Is estimated , however , that enough was done
by committees nt the last session to occupy
the attention of congress for n whole year if
they were taken tin seriatim. Two-thirds of
the committees In the house. It Is said , will
not have n tegular meeting during the rest of
this term , while not mnio than n dozen of
them all wllltry to Imvo any business re-
ortcd by them disposed of on the floor of
10 house.
It scorns to be prettv well settled in the
minds of senators nnd members airived heio
tiom all parts of the country tlmt nn
Inter-stato commerce bill of some charac
ter will be parsed during the next eight
weeks. Most of the statesmen who have
been keeping run of the question say the
measure will practically be thn Cullom bill ,
which places the icgnlatlon of common car-
Icr" In the hands ol n commission. Judge
Seagnn. of Texas , whoso bill making an nr-
litiarv law passed tlio house Inst winter has
ecently said that for the purpose of begin-
ilng the regulation ho would accept the Cnl-
tun hill , and this is ns near n compromise ns
ho most ardent monopolist can hope for.
Jullom has fought the Reagan bill on the
ground that It is not wise to place on tlio
statutes n law directing to tlio letter how far
i common carrier shall go without ascci taili
ng something about the practical regulation
of 1L In other words , lie believes In feeling
.ho way , instead of going tlieia nt one leap.
Senator Voorhecs and other prominent
democrats say there Is no foundation tor the
statement tlmt there is a scheme on foot for
their party to secure a majority by admitting
Washington tcrrltoiy to statehood and thus
secure two senators , through nn undcistand-
Ing whereby bills tor the admission of both
D.ikota and Washington have passed the
senate and now nwalt tlio action of the house.
Ills true , they admit , that the demociats
could lake advantage of the republicans by
getting control of tlie senate , but tncy dis
claim any Intention to do such a dishonor
able act , ns It was well undeistood at the
time thu republicans in the senate voted to
admit Washington , n democratic territory ,
that It was done to effect Dakota politically.
It Is intimated that the luesldent would not
sign the bill admitting Washington if advan
tage was taken of the situation and Dakota
was refused admission at the same time.
The secretary of the National Drill to beheld
held hero in May of next year , says that
tlie success of the enterprise Is assured. Ho
believes tlmt Washington will entei tain more
guests at that time and will have more
foreigners in the city , and that the occasion
will be more of n national character than
anything tlmt has ever taucn place here. Ho
Ims iccclved Inquiiles from people in nearly
every section of tlio woild , Indicating that
the project 1ms attracted attention wide
spread. The interest of the American people
Is so widespread that tlio participation in the
drill will undoubtedly be far in excess of all
anticipation when the project was first
oiiglnated and put on foot.

ot thecl.iims ot the Irish peasantry and tlmt
the icpressive policy would speedily produce
a levtilsion of feeling in England against
