A Snd Story.
WA niNiirox. D. C. , Feb. 10. )
Vice President C. P. Huntlngton , of the
Central Pacific rallror-d , was before the house
committee on Pacille rnllwuis this morning
for one hour nnd a quarter In advocacy of the
bill to extend the time for the liquidation to
the government of the Indebtedness of the
various Pacifies. Mr. Huntlngton confined
Ills remarks to the Interests of his own road
and attempted n piteous appeal in behalf of
n povet ty-strlckcn corporation. Hcfcrring to _
the remarks of Mr. Huntliifiton as to tho"
hearing , Mr. Mason , of the committee , said :
"Ho came with tears in his eyes and prunes
II ! in his throat. " A stranger to Mr. Huntington -
ton and his past career would have been Im
pressed with the Idea that it was the widow
pleading for the retention of her last mite ,
but to thobO who arc acquainted with the his
tory of the management of the Pacifies It was
n line piece of irony and sarcasm , To begin
with. Mr. Huntlnglon detailed in a racy way
the trials nnd tribulations encountered by
Lehuid Stanford , Mark Hopkins , Charles-
Crocker nnd himself in raising money on
their Individual names , buying materials and
labor at fabulous prices , suppressing
the Indians and chiseling their way through
mountain and desert to complete n road
which has never paid them a dollar in divi
dends and which always has been extremely
jtoor. Ho Iiad often wondered Jiow they
ever pulled through and for years ho wanted
it off his hands. Huntington's voice trem
bled , and ns ho looked at the members of the
committee and , gazing into their eyes , pic
tured the time when ho and the other thrco
men who wcro the architects of the Central
Pacific were farm hands at $7 a month , tears
trickled down his checks and his heart
seemed ready to burst with grief as he found
himself , after these long years , unable to
hand the government n cheek for its balance
due. Ho repeatedly called attention to the
poverty of the road.
"And have you , Mr. Huntington , nnd your
companions kept poor with the Central Pa-
elllot" inquired Mr. Mason , imitating the
trembling voice of the railroad magnate.
There was n painful silence for a moment ,
but the reply finally came : "Well , no ; wo
nro said to be rich , but mind you , wo became
so through our individual exei tions nnd not
through the Central Pacille. "
Then Mr. Huntlngton branched off again
on the cost of the road , tolling the committee
how he had bought rails from 40 to 100 a
ton , sending them around Capo Horn to the
Pacific slope , and In most instances not being
able to use the materials , on account of de
lays , under n year from the date of shipment.
Ho said ho had paid as much as tli'J.OOO for
locomotives when he recently bought better
ones for ( t > ,000. Ho said , too , that the gov
ernment had given the Northern Pacific moro
than it had loaned the Central and had en
abled their northern rival to so cut on rates
as to take away nil the profits on through
Mr. Weber , of the committee , wanted to
know how much a duplicate of the Central
Pacific would cost with its equipments.
'About us much as the first mortgage in
debtedness , " replied Mr. Huntington , add
ing : "Yes , less than that amount , and the
road is not paying. No , it is not profitable. "
"Well , " said Mr. Collins , "if that is true ,
.would it not bo money in your pockets to
throw up the road to the government for the
debt ! "
For the first time the magnate was non
plussed. Ho stammered : " \Vo prefer to pay
off the debt nnd keep the road. " Again Mr.
Huntington branched off into the cm ly trials
of the projectors of the road , pleading for
nn equitable settlement. Ho talked n great
deal about the equity of the road as between
it and the government and declared
that , In reality , ho did not think
the rend owed the government any
thing. Ho was willing to let that bo deter
mined by the courts , however. Tlio commit
tee were a good deal surprised at the mys
terious and continuous talk about "equity , "
nnd requested him to submit them within n
fortnight what ho meant by the road's
equity , together with a proposition for the
liquidation of the debt. Ho said he thought
the entire indebtedness to the government
ought to bo put into ono sum , to date say
July next , then divide it np into 250 payments ,
to bo met scmi-annuully , aggregating f 1.-
0K,000 ! ) a year. The committee begun to
figure that this was an extension of 135 years ,
whonMr.Hun > .ingtoii observed , placidly , thai
it was nn extension about fifty-two years ,
No ono but Mr. Huutington could sco It in
that way.

Senator Uiddleberger threaten to play
liavoe with Senator Sherman's presidential
boom by throwing all of the responsibility
for the British extradition treaty upon Mr ,
Shcrmnn , who is chairman of the committee
on foreign volutions , liiddicbcrgcr says the
treaty is in opposition to all Irish-American
institutions and hopox , and that no man whc
lias any sympathy with homo rule for Ireland
nnd who is opposed to the oppression of the
queen will have any patience with senator'
who have entertained the idea that the treaty
should bo ratified. Mr. Uiddleberger did UK
country a service by making the light against
star-chamber practices and the barbarous
executive or secret sessions of the senate
Ho had n holy subject and nn admirable op
portuulty to show his strength In the con
sidcruilon of the British treaty , but ho seem :
to have acted so outrageously that ho ha1
lost all of the respect ho won in tlio llgh
no made against the treaty and against tin
secret sessions , llu latest threat ugalus
Mr. Sherman : snot considered u very scriou1
"There will bo some very important lam
laws enacted by this congress , 1 tblnk , " Mill
Uepresentatlvo Payson , of .Illinois , going ui
to the capital in a street car today.llTh
first thing will bo to stop the commutation o
entries. The practice of entering under on
law and proving up under another has led I
great frauds. The committee on publl
lands Is advised that in curtain sections o
the country them are men who make n bus1
ness of colling rclinquishmonts nnd that the ,
ndveillsu them for sale. This is , of course
in direct violation of the law , at least th
spirit of the law , although there is no wn ,
of punishing it. That is to bo stopped , j
law will bo passed which will make it next t
on impossibility to soil n relinqulshment o

committee on public lands in the house un

In the rotunda under the dome of the cnj

oVci' nn hour this afternoon gazing at th
large paintings on the wall , and seldoi

by all who were near him. Ho rolled h
largo , dcoseutcd | and wickcd-fookiiiK eyt
nt every one , and could trace tlio passm-b
a long distance by his nbllitv to turn hisoyc ,
Ills face was so remurknblo ami h

stalked down on the floor below nnd visited
the committee rooms. It was observed that
he talked to many members nnd that most of
them were from Missouri. He went to the
unoccupied senate chamber to sco the two
Missouri senators and seemed to hove some
thing on his tnlnd , although ho was ns coot
ns an Ice chest. I asked n Mlssourlan who
the man was , and lie said : "Maxwell , from
St. Louis , father of the young man who is to
hang for murdering Piciler. He cnmo hereto
to work up a pardon for his son. lie fright
ens everyone who see him , " .
In spite of the confident nssurnnco of ono
of the New York mate eommlttcemcn. In
which ho stated that the even division of the
state committee on the question of n successor
to Hubert S. Thompson had no presidential
significance , there is u deciilcd feeling of un
easiness In white house circles ovcivthu want
of harmony In New York state. The presi
dent Is worried over the outlook. His
kitchen cabinet has been culled together and
nervous consultations have been held almost
daily to devise ways and means for cement
ing the democrats of the Empire state to
gether for harmony nnd Cleveland. Among
those who have been consulted are ex-Mayors
(1 race nml Cooper and Morris Powers , who
have spent a great many hours with Cleve
land within n few days past.
Secierary of State Cook arrived to day nnd
lost no time in proceeding to the white
house , where he was closeted for a consider
able time with the chief magistrate. Just
what the outcome of the conversation was
cannot , of course , be asecitaincd at this time.
Other prominent democrats have been sent
for and will shoitly bo here , and , if possible ,
some plan will bo arranged by which differ
ences can be healed and harmony inaugur
ated when the national committee meets hereon
on the U2d. There is still a small amount ot
patronage for distribution in Now York state
Itself and several moi cor less important of
fices to fill in Washington , and New York is
getting her share and rather more. Cleve
land may not be n candidate for re-election ,
but he has all the candidate's symptoms , and ,
if reports are to be believed , he is leaving no
stone unturned which will aid him in secur
ing it. It Is probable that the first two dele
gates to the democratic convention will bo
chosen for the District of Columbia. The
Washington city convention will meet within
u week after the meet ing of the national com
mittee. Tlio city is divided up into twenty
districts , each of which semis three delegates
to the city convention. Tlio word has passed ,
and Messrs. Wilson , Trotter , Chiggett and
Hess , respectively marshal , recorder of deeds ,
reeordcrof wills and postmaster , are working
might nnd main in a quiet way to control the
selection of delegates to the city convention
who are friendly to Cleveland's interests.
The workers of the paity are not among the
number. Nearly every man in Washington
who took a prominent part in the election of
ISM is opposed to Cleveland. They assert
that they collected : ! , UOI in small sums in
ISSt and sent it to New York , and then , be
sides , thev sent upwards of 250 voters
homo to New Yprk state. In return
their loader has been ignored and
every prominent man among them
has been disregarded in the local appoint
ments , consequently they propose to send
William Uiekson , the present secretary of
the national committee , nnd another to the
presidential convention. Dickson will not
vote for Cleveland this time and his col
league will vote with him.
A member of the democratic central com
mittee said to-night :
"Cleveland may pull every wire nthiscom
mand , in fact , he is pulling them all , but it
will bo impossible for him to control the city
convention , and it is as certain as anything
can bo that the two delegates for the District
of Columbia will vote for Cleveland under
no circumstances. "
DEx-Hcpresentativc Cobb , of Indiana , put in
an appearance at the capital to-day. It is
said that Cobb Is fishing for an appointment
of some kind and that he Is so anxious to get
into public llfo that ho has no choice about
the recognition lie is accorded by the admin
istration. Some of the Indiana democrats
jvho have been working for the appointment
of Acting. Commissioner Stockslagcr to bo
commissioner of the general land office say
Cobb has been working for the place himself
and are inclined to speak a little harshly
about him for it. They say that if he had
kept away from hero Mr. Stockslager would
weeks ugo huvo been appointed , but that
since ho hus been hntiging around neither
will get it. Mr. Stockslagcr and his friends
are unable to fathom the object in delaying
the appointment of sonic one to the commis-
Acting Commissioner Stoekslagcr , of the
general land office , seems to have turned out
a great volume of work while ho has occu
pied that desk at his department. During
the past thrco months over sixteen thousand
laud patents have been issued. Mr. Stock-
singer , who is a modest man , said to-day that
this increase of cases settled was duo to a
change in the system of transacting the busi
ness of the office rather than to u change of
the policy which has prevailed during the
present administration. Ho acknowledged
that the work of thooftleo is behind , but says
that it is duo to inadequate clerical force and
says that business is dispatched us rapidly us
It ever was with a like force.

LOXDOX , Fe6. 10. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to tlio Bun. ] Two notable
dinner parties were given thta evening nt a
West End hotel to u queen , n prince , Ills
nflimico and their suite , nt the East End to
1,200 tramps end vagabonds. Classes and
masses were thus made as strictly differen
tial as was possible. Of the two menus many
would think the tramps had the best of it ,
since the Grand hotel , where the queen of
Sweden , Prince Osertr and Miss Ebba Munck
and suite arrived this afternoon is one not
well reputed for the nicest bills of faro. In n
royal sense the Swedish party may have also
been called trumps , having been lately speed
ing through Germany , Belgium and France.
Prince Oscar and the cx-mald of honor whom
he is soon to wed , probably nt Bournemouth ,
have already had their love romance told. I
attended at their arrival at Victoria station ,
Pimlico , where the crowd of curiosity-mon
gers outnumbered those who on a previous
evening had welcomed the G. O. M. The
queen was a motherly-looking person ,
dressed plainly in black. The prototype of
her Swedish face has been often seen doubt
less in Castle Garden.
"A tidy sort of body , don't you know , " cx-
iluimcd a masher-spectator at the elbow of a
iraphic artist sketching the group.
Miss Munck wore it ehocolatc-colorcd trav
eling costume and velvet bonnet of the same
material. She Is by no means handsome ,
argo cared , which Indicates generosity , a
perfectly formed nose , rich pouting lips , n
: iny dimple in chin , mirthful eyes and a
: ieavy jaw , denoting determination. My
aitist neighbor said :
"It Is a face of constancy. She seems n
lomely body in the English interpretation of
: hat adjective. "
Prince Oscar accorded with the manly de
scription of him already given in the Herald.
Their hotel was about two miles eastward.
Carriages from .Buckingham pahico
met them. The party took possession
of the suite of rooms recently
consecrated by the occupation of Jay Gould.
The register bore the names of the Queen
'ountcss ' of Hague nntl the Prince Count of
Gropsholme , but the lord chamberlain , the
court physician , the queenly named maids of
honor and the fair inliamoruta arc registered
under their own appellations. The stairways
were lined with flowers and palms and the
especial chambers of royalty had been es
pecially furnished. Nor were there wanting
obligingly advcrtlsii.g toutors about to tell
you who furnished the tapestries , the mir
rors , the bed of the timo.ot Louis XIV ho
called It Louis Cartherse the ollvo green
silk chairs and lounges , the blue bedroom
set , another chamber net for the prince of
seal-colored plush , the portable electric
lights , etc. , etc. Delmonlco would have
blushed at the royal menu , which was , sim
ply rendered into English , printaniero soup ,
olcs , plainly grilled for entree , chicken with
asparagus tips , saddle of welsh mutton , roast
pheasant , fried bananas , burnt almonds , as
sorted fruits and cakes.
Meanwhile , at tho'immensc "home" of Dr.
Barnardo at Bow , In the extreme cast , 1,200
poor chaps of the unemployed , gathered from
streets , docks , alleyways and casual wards ,
were feasting on huge rounds of roast beef ,
channel island roast potatoes and bread pud
ding , liberally stuffed with plums. Hero
also was the artist of an illustrated paper. If
he caught the expressions upon all the faces
ho has made a priceless picture of human
misery and expressed in lineaments. The
feast was provided at the expense of a rich
\ustruliun merchant. Dr. Burnardo's homo
of refuge is for .East London what the
Five Points mission was for New Vorlc.
When the feast was over and several plate-
fulls had been given to each Lazarus , Dr.
Barnardo addressed the poor fellows and in
vited them to attend to morrow and ho

English PI-OSH Comment on the Killing
of Millionaire Snell.
[ Com/riuM 1SK8 LU James Gordon nennttt. " }
LONDON , Pcb 10 , [ New York Herald
Cable Special to thoBF.n. ] Burglaries onn
largo scale have become so cpidcmio in the
suburbs hereabouts and so great n sensation
is being produccil in the public tnlnd that the
intelligence cabled hero about the Chicago
murder has occasioned unwonted interest.
This morning's News , referring to It , re
marks : "Tho murder by burglars in Chicago
cage has the vivid and startling interest of a
sensational drama. Mr. Sucll fell a victim
to his extraordinary courage. " The article
then recounts their circumstances and again
comments thus : "A speedy capture of the
rufllans and u short shrift is the best wish
that can bo sent to Chicago Just
now. The la t is particularly
important in ordinary circumstances ,
The murderers , if'caught to-morrow , may
still bo holding levees in jail this day twelve
month. Amcrlcan'justico is slow-footed if
not rather slow-witted In the difficulty it
seems to experience of making up its minden
on the plainest questions of fact. Judge
Lynch has often beqn due to mere force of
reaction. A New York paper the other day
commented in a lone of envy on the exem
plary dispatch with which Dr. Cross , the
Irish poisoner , was arrested , tried and
hanged. "
Pi ovlnclal papers are also commenting on
the tragedy. Tlio Leeds Mercury , among
others , says : ' 'An 'American millionaire has
just died from what may truly bo called a
preventable cause. Hearing u noise in his
ofllco , he cfnic down stairs to learn what was
the icuson thereof..Interrupted in their ex
amination of his safe , ti ; burglars shot him
dead , Science provides means of sounding
gongs far and near the moment a Svt'lar
crosses a threshold on tip-too or lifts up a
window sash , but even millionaires prefer to
avoid expense in making themselves secure
against a midnight thief. "
The same Issue of the Dally News next
draws editorial uttentkm to the fisheries
question. Chamberlain's empty seat in the
conimCUSf with the loss of ills eyeglass and
orchid , , rccaficcj the subjWjl generally , anil
perhaps the sight of Colonel Huy5 : 3 Ilullctt ,
setting alone and shunned , suggested extra
dition. The News'broke out thus : "The
i new extradition treaty with the IJnitod State ?
) may pr/irea / falluie. ti has bOm luU bclorc
the scuuie , which has postponed it till Do
ccmber next. Tills decision was reached by
a strict party Vote the republicans voting
for postponement and the democrats against.
This circumstance looks moro than sus
picious. According to thclrown showing the
republicans wcro anxious to postpone
ratification until Great Britain had
exhibited a duly complacent frame of minden
on the llsliciics question. The
fisheries question , however , is not a special
concern of cither party and It is difficult to
sco why their solicitude on that subject should
have led the republicans to vote all ono way.
The welfare of the republican ticket In the
forthcoming presidential election would , on
the contrary , bo Just the thing to unite thorn
to u man , and the republican ticket , It Is
said , at least whenever It bears the name of
Mr. Blainc , docs not disdain to support the
dynamite faction. Perhaps Mr. Bhilne and
his friends would faro just as well In the
long run if they dolgncd to consider the
treaty on its merits. The people of the
United States ought by this time to know how
to draw a distinction between political
offenders and the miscreants' who arc the com
mon enemies of civilization , moro especially
as the treaty , as drafted , draws it for them
with every possible guarantee against abuses
of power. Either motive of the republican
senators would be unworthy of them and the
motive alleged by themselves is only less
unworthy than the one of which they arc sus
pected. It is hardly the thing to carry the
famous Blsinarcktan principle of barter into
a transaction for bringing murderers to their
doom. " _

speech-making and got applause in
as many rounds as the boxcrtt gave
with gloves. Ho said , among
other things : "Every Briton admirco
Kilrain for courage and coolness and Smith
for pluck. " The rounds wcro unusually
good. In round ono Smith led off nnd shortly
after got homo upon the face , but Kilrain
retaliated and Smith returned the compli
ment twice , after which Kilrain was very
active with lis ! left. In round two Kilrain
resorted to his well-known strong hits upon
the body and retired Just in time
to save n hot 'un. Smith had the
best of the sparring after' that. In
round three the dashing leads of Smith and
the use of tha left by Kilrain caused much
cheering. Smith followed up a hit with a
second one and Kilrain went down , but was
up in a moment. Smith's ' activity and double
shots were prominent nnd there was cheer
ing when the rounds terminated nnd cries
were raised with a view to getting four
rounds , but the champions only bowed their

showed the striking result ! of the crimes

was only ' . ' 03. The government's efforts to
protect persons from Imycottors had been
notably successful In the Counties ( Mare nnd
Kerry , whcrotho league had been suppressed.
People now traveling in Ireland declared the
condition of the country was greatly Im
proved. and the Judges confirmed this opin
ion. The government was engaged in the
old struggle , but never before had any gov-
cinment arrayed against it the forces recog-
lizcd by the opposition. Ho claimed the

ncluded six months of calm , during
which eviction notices could not bo

ilue , not to coercion , but to an entirely
changed state of feeling and a deeper sense
of responsibility to liberal members , who

Justice forlroland. [ Cries of "Hear I Henri" !
The Irish party , it was now assumed , would
ultimately rcali/o its aspirations. If It

fect of coercion in aggravating social dlsor-

Harrington , nationalist , called Balfour'.s
speech "n choice example of his mendacity. "
The speaker called upon Harrington to with
draw the expression. Harrington acquiesced ,
but snid he did so only under command.
Harrington , continuing , said everybody con
versant witli the affairs of Ireland know the
magistrates did all they could to Irritate the
people. Balfour's regime oppressed tlio
people ; he tried to suppress those vindicating
the people's rights. But the principles of
liberality would bo fought for until they

.md HO cents for the latter. All these cuta
wcro promptly met by competing lines. A
peculiar fcaturo of the rate war , as far as this ;
icctlon of the country is concerned , is that iti
: ms not inci cased but ratncr lessened the

ing off as long as possible to await a fnrthcn

that when the ten days' notice of a restoration - '
