The Obligation * of Bnljilillrcil Uo.iils
Treated nt Lioncth.
WAIIIIXOTO.V. Dec. 14 , The entire morn
ing's session ot the house committee on post-
ofllres and post roads was occupied In the
rending of the leport of Kepresentnll\c A. , ) ,
Warner , of Ohio , on the obligations of subsi
dised railways'lelegraph lines. The icpoit
Is based upon tlie Investigation onlciod by
the house last } car under a resolution ot In
quiry by KcpresenlatUo Anderson of Kan-
sis. It Is a very long document nnd begins
wllha Mimmnry of theso\ernl acts provid
ing for the construction ot the 1'aclfic rail
road and telozraph lines for which crants of
land nnd bonds Ime been made. After an
cxhatisthc argument the conclusions of the
sub-committee on the several points at Issue
are stated as follows :
1. That the obligation In construct , main
tain nnd operate a telciuaph line U the Bruno
as the obligation toconstiuct , maintain and
opcialca HUD nt railroad.
1. Tlmt a millond company cannot relieve
Itself nt this oblhratlon , and cannot transfer
It to nn > nthcrcoiiipanv.
3. That as public nldean bo grunted onlv
for wibllu purposes , such telegraph Hues , as
well asrnllroad Hues , must bo opoiatcd lor
the equal bcncllt of all iicr > on , companies or
corpointlonsltlioutillicriiiilnatlonJa favorer
or against any one.
4. In older that all may enjov equal facili
ties , privileges and Iho 110 of such telegraph
ll'ies. It Is necessary tlmt thu same facilities
and ti'ims ns to thu reception nnd tiansmls-
sion of nu miKGs should no uvtondod to one
tnlcgrnpli Hue that ate granted to nnolhor
that In this matter them should bo no ills-
crimination. Conceding that a subsidised
railroad Is under an obligation to maintain
and operate n telciriaph line lor the bciielils
ol all , It follow ? that It Is bound to accept
telegraph matter nt the terminus ot Its lines
from nil telegraph companies.
f > . 'Ihccommllico hud , fiom the evidence
before It , that the lallioads me not maintain
ing nnd oui'iatlng ' b > tlicin > ulves and for
public use lulecraph Hues as leijuliod by the
sevoialnotsoC countess nndur which they
WL-roautlioiized lo build their lines. It l.s
held that contracts entered Into between tlio
railroad company and the Western Union
Trlezinph company , by which the ilphtH
privileges ol the t.iilioad companies were
tinusterred to the \Vestcin Union nro be
yond the seopo of the law. ( Those posi
tions aio sustained by mntiy icleumi-os to
granting nets and decisions of the United
States .siipictno court. ]
0. The light ol tlio Westoui Union or any
other telegiaph company to coii tiuct nnd
oicialc | lines of Its own to tlie I'acllio coast Is
not ( itiestioned , but It Is iiold that the
construction ot Midi lines fan not leliovo tbu
lallroad eumpnules fiom obligations to main
tain lines themselves as it'iiiurcd bythobov-
oral nets.
By wny ot romrdlal legislation , the sub
committee proposed n hill which extends to
thu tHui'rnph lines the provisions of the net
of .luiiclH , 1874 , iclatlug lo rallioado , ami
makes It the duty ot tlie attorney general tu
Institute proceedings in the fedeial courts to
adjudlc.ito nil rlj'litsot parties alleged to hold
contracts or to have lights under any anico-
mcnt cntcicd Into \\llli the rnlliond cotniia-
nles ana to annul and M > t asldo contiacls un
lawfully made , byhlch tlm the inllio.uls
have tliouelit to relieve themselves of their
just obligntlous to malntnlu iiud opciatolu-
tiepcndent telegraph linos. The penalties
picbcribed by thu act ot , ltinu"o , l 7l , as to
inllroads nre iimiit1 applleablo to tclogiaph
linesns well. The report was oiileied to bo
] irlutcd and will bo tnUcii up for dlbeussloii
utati euily day.

At 7 : TJ o'clock lust evening the council
chainbor WTSonted "u picture for paint-
ITS to study. " The atidicnc-o room was
( illctl wltli expectant , citi/.ens wlio had
convened to hear soniotliinu drop. Prosl-
dunl Hochcl was in the hallway holding a
whisporcrt consultation with IMItor
ISolliakcr of the Republican ; Mayor
lloyd , the Greek editor of Hie Herald and
; ho Third ward reformer were "eaueuss-
ng'1 near the water cooler ; Phil Me-
Shane was in communion witli Councilmen -
men Schroeder and Goodrich ; Councilmen -
men Halley , Dailov and Goodman sat so-
lately wailing for the reforco to call
time ; Councilman ( Caspar concealed hi in-
self in a cloud of smoke from a Thir
teenth street llabuna ; Councilman Che
ney was lost in contemplation of the
contents of a peace tract , while Marshal
Cuinniings stood guard over the irate
which Is designed to separate the conn-
oilmen from tlio common herd. Council
man Mike Lee came in late anil , ob > erv-
inij the eager searching look that was
worn by the outsiders referred to , sug
gested that they had lost the key to the
combination and wuru looking for it.
"Ituthakcr has made a contract but
ho can't deliver tlio goods. " remarked
Mr. Leo. "Charley Goodricn has the now
marshal's star in his pqcki't , P.olliajccr
has a hand-painted billet for him ,
Schroeder has a plume that is to adorn
the now chief's hat which Is the cause of
that hump you will notice under Paddy
Ford's coat. " The m < ired deal ot the
council , however , did not materialize ,
and the preparations that had been made
for the welcoming of Marshal Cum tiling's
.successor were loit. The bouncing pro
gramme that hail been arranged by
Mayor Ho.yd's iiuiiuiircrs failed of per
formance 'owing to the sudden indisposi
tion of one of the star actors. It appears
that after the cast had been completed
by a contract for a one night engage
ment with a republican in&mbur , Conn-
oilmen Lowry and Goodman refuted to
play. The curtain was kept down until
Manager Hothaker learned that the tele
grams , which , at his instigation , had
been sent by Mr. Lee's friends in the
east , could not induce that irenllonian to
join the east in his sensational one act
drama "Fire Cummings. " 'lids was the
hist hope and when it faded the perform
ance had to be indclinitely postponed.
The admission fee was refunded to the
spectators and the council proceeded
with their regular performance as follows.

meeting held nt the First MothodUt

tlio movement to secure the location of
the Methodist university at Omaha. Rev.
Mr. llouso culled the meeting to order

Mr. Patterson made a Tory encourag
ing speech , setting torth the fact that It
was absolutely nercssavy for the success
of the proposed umvor.sity to have it lo
cated in the vicinity ofn largo city. He
stated further that while ho had been un
able because of unftctcd | ) pressure of
business , to attend ; ofhe ; duty of solicit
ing subscriptions for 'tio ) university , ho
had yet secured several subscriptions ,
amounting to botwociblotir and five thou
sand dollars.
Mr. George W. Troaf made an encour
aging address , shoWli/g / that the estab
lishment of a univj'isity at this point
meant the opening or ft theological school ,
a law collciic. a medical college , a paper ,
a branch of the Methodist book concern
and several other enterprises , which ,
of course , would bring money to the city.
11. T. Clarke made a most encouraged

and appreciated.

imously adopted :

possible , and excelled that of last season.
The Orchestra was excellent under the
direction of Sig. Toinnsi , and the
chorus unusually satisfactory. Botli the
male and female choruses contained ma
terial above the average , The solo parts
were so well sung and acted as to be be
yond criticism. Miss Abbott interpreted
the gushing , gurgling school girl to per
fection , and her interpolated bird song iu
the .second act was a Superb bit of vocal-
ix.ation that brought her a double recall.
Miss Aubotl lias recovered from the se
vere cold Hint omimrniss-cd her the pre
vious evening , and her voice seemed
freer and more tolling than ever.
Miss Annamlalo's performance was
eminently superior to that of the evening
before , and her excellent singinu and
acting ought to have atoned for her not
appearing in male attire. Slio is the best
Katisha by far that has been seen hero.
Montegriilb was quite capable in tlie part
of Nanki-Pooh. lie retains the manner
ism that have become so idcntilicd xvith
him that they seen a part of him to be
accepted with the rest of him , but what
ever may be said of his method his voice
is good
Waller Allen made all irrestiblv funny
Ko-Ko. His humor is dry and of the
sort that wears well. His astonishing
fall made a sensation. Brodenck was
well cast as the pompous Pooh-bah , and
others of the company were equally Balis-
factory in their parts-
The "Bohemian Girl" will be given
this afternoon and a grand performance
of "Faust" will bo the bill this evening.
