WASHINGTON Buucxu THE OMAHA. HKK , )

WASHihQTON- . C. , Feb. 11. |
It was made nioro plain to-day than was
really anticipated that the special committee
of the house investigating the Heading rail
way strike and tlio mining troubles in Penn
sylvania as ill-composed and ill-organized ,
The only man on the committee who had any
experience In such investigations who appears
to Imvo any adaptability to the work is Judge
Parker , of New York. Ho is llfty-seven
years old , lias been long on tlio bench and In
the practice of law , but has had some expe
rience in investigations by his connection in
the last congress with the committee that in
vestigated the strko on the Gould system of
railways of tlio southwest.
Judge Clilpmun , of Now York , is fifty-
eight years old , and on his first term in con
gress. Mr. Stone , of Missouri , lays no claim
to being a probor of secrets.
Mr. Anderson , of Kansas , is so very deaf
that ho can scarcely keep track of the pro
ceedings of the committee.
The chairman , Mr. Tillinan , is sixty-two
years old and no moro active or qualified for
the work than was ex-Governor Cnrtin , who
was chairman of the strike committee in the
last congress. '
As a witness the committee had before
them to-dav John L. Leo , u machinist in the
Heading shops at Philadelphia , who was dls-
charged in the curly part of the Heading
J strike and who has been chairman of the
executive board which has attempted , on a
number of occasions , to bring about a settle *
ment between the strikers and President
Corbin , General Manager MoLeod and Gen
eral Superintendent Swigard. This man
was full of valuable information , but it
seemed that no one , of. the committee was
about to got it. Members of the committee
. Inquired of Leo where tins strike , or "lock
out , " as ho tanned it , began , and what the
principle was which it involved , and not one
itnew , when he left tlio witness stand after
two hours of talk , what ho wanted to
Know. To nuiko a long story short ,
the strikers charge these three rallioad offi
cials with having acted selllshly and in bnd
fuith. They claim that Swlgaid violated all
of the various vcibal and written agreements
cntei ed into by wlrtch the strikers wore to bo
uvcrtcil , discharges mnda only after careful
investigation and arbitration and the inteiest
of the employes maintained under all condi
tions of trade. He stated In most positive
terms that Swlgard had , after acting in bad
faith with the employes , attempted to act in
bad faith with the Heading company , and
that ho mudo propositions to him ( Leo ) , to
glvohlm a better position than a machinist
if ho would set him ( Swlgard ) right with the
company , with which ho seems to have gotten
into bud icputu within a short time. Leo
charged Swigard and Coi bin with having
proposed to enter into a secret compact witli
the lockcd-out employes by which the latter
were to assist the. former in bulling the coal
market , when tlio employes and employers
wcro to snare and share alike in the proflts ,
He also charged the railroad company with
having delayed his tolo raphio messages an
nouncing the striku at an end , and ordering
the men to work for' the purpaso of giving
the uillroad otllclals an oppoitunlty to dis
charge the strikers > nnd tuko ltd vantage ol
tlio emergency the strike ! had created lU the
Tin : Loxariiuor TO lusoncuxizE TUB KOF i.
T.ho witness gave to the committee tko
name of William T. Lewis , who is located at
Columbus , O. . and who is at the head of the
district organization of miners , nnd promised
; hat Lewis would give undisputed and posi
tive testimony about the existence of a con
spiracy between the railroad managers of
the country , with headquarters in New
York. \ \ ith a view of breaking down the or-
[ jani/ation of Knights of Labor. The charge
lias been frequently made during the post
two or three years and a number of times
labor agitators in tlio cast have connected
the names of railway officials with this cc-i-
spiracy. When Mr. Lewis is called to tes
tify it will bo seen whether there is anything
in this grave accusation. The investigation
creates no interest in Washington because ,
as I stated some time ago , the impression
prevails that no good will come of the inves
tigation ; that after the committee next week
visits Pennsylvania and other sections of the
east nnd takes testimony from the strikes
rtnd the railroad jxsoplo It will como back and
postpone for months its Una ! report , for
reasons generally only known to investigat
ing committees , nnd that no action will
eventually bo taken on the deductions of the
committee by congress.
ANOTHER rutcicAL IXVKSTKUTIOX.
The investigation by the house committee
on manufactures into the formation and
maintenance of trusts throughout the coun
try , authorized by the Mason resolution , is
to begin next week. Several days ago each
member of the committee was appointed a
committee of ono to obtain information to bo
used oa pointers and a basis upon which to
operate , the committee having no starting
point. This investigation has a novel pur
pose , and inasmuch us it will bring into pub-
lie view immense corporations , against
which there have been howls set up for
years , it could do u great deal of good to the
country and prove very interesting if it was
conducted with any energy and persistence.
But an impression has got abroad in Wash
ington that this investigation , like the ono
into the Heading railway strike , will bo
abortive and will not ainount to much in the
end. It seems that the speaker , either
torough negligence , ignorance or general In
capacity iu such matters , manifestly so com
poses the investigating committees , which
have wide opportunities , so as to make a
failure of the ends in view.
Tim quuimi.i.ixo : nuutou > s.
Meetings are being hold almost nightly by
fiaffluents of u committee known as the cain-
inltteo of ono hundred and composed of citi
zens of the southern part of the city which is
traversed by the railroads , for the purpose
of determining whether congress shall com
pel the : . ; llronds to abolish the present depots
occupied by them and establish a union sta
tion. A great deal of agitation has been
given the subject within the past two or three
weeks , and the citizens of the southern sec
tion of Washington nro considerably per
turbed. As stated in u dispatch to the HUB
several days ago , the question involved is one
of conflicting interest * between two of the
great railroad companies entering Washing
ton. The H.iltimoro & Potomac , which Is a
branch of the Pennsylvania railroad , has a
line station located on anunfrequentedstreot ,
but in u very , convenient locality for the
'travelling public. From it run the two or
three roads to the south. About a milo in the
opposite direction the Baltimore & Ohio is
located. Its station is very dliigy and old ,
and that company wants an opportunity to
rebuild. Above nil this , however it desires
n union depot , so that It can get connections
to the south over the roads which run into
the Pennsylvania station , and which it canr
not reach under the present arrangement.
The tight has been going on for three or four
yearn , and is a very bitter ono. U is a ques
tion \\hlch interests all of the people who
visit the national capital , as it affects their
convenience. Congress is being Hooded with
petitions on tha subject. The people in the
District appear to bo in the majority for per-
initiing the H.iltimoro & Potomac road to
maintain Its pioacnt station , while the coun
try at large , so fur aH heard fiom , is unani
mous in that direction.

Grave robbing is about as common a thing-
In this town now ns lobbying. Hardly it
week posses that the body of some loved one
is not discovered in a dissecting room. And
what is OKI punishment for such ci lines f
Next to nothing. A short , a very short term
lu the District Jail. The latest and most
sensational instance of body-snatching came
to light under peculiar circumstances last
nlcjht , when several men were arrested soon
utter leaving a medical college with the body
of a luxly which had botin stolen and which
they were about to return to the cemetery.
The body was that of the young wife of Uov.
Dr. Teasdale. The lady had died on the first
of the month. A few days later friends wont
to the grave to place some flowers. A second
end visit was made by the same parties two
days later and they were horrified to find
placed upon the mound with the other flowers
a boquot that had reposed on the bosom of
the dead woman in her coffin. This led to an
investigation and the subsequent finding of
the body. Mrs. Teasdalo was ono of the
most beautiful women in this section of the
country. She had been married but a few
month and death had resulted from a maladv
that had baffled the physicians. This fact
probably caused the medical men to have the
body stolen for examination.

Onr Second Washington.
NBW YOIIK , Feb. 11. The Republican Club
of the City of Now York held a dinner nt
Dohnonlco's to-night in honor of the birthday
of Abraham Lincoln. About 273 persons wcro
present , including the following gticsts : Sen
ator John Sherman , Congressman William
McICtuley , jr. , and Hon. Charles H. Gros-
vcnor , oil of Ohio ; Senator W. M. Evarts
nnd ox-Senator T. S. Platt and Warner
Miller ; Hon. W.B. Allison , of Iowa ; Senator
Mandcrson , of Nebraska , nnd Congressman
Goff , of West Virginia. Among those who
sent letters of regret wore ex-Secretary of
War Robert T. Lincoln , ex-Vice President
Hannibal Hamlin , General John C. Fremont ,
cx-Prcsldent Hayes , Chief Justice Wnite , of
the supreme court ; Governor Forakcr ,
of Ohio ; Governor Oglesby , of Illi
nois ; Governor Beaver , of Pennsylvania.
Senator Hoar , Senator Ingalls , Judge Gresham -
ham , General Alger and Hon. B. F. Jones.
The first regular toast was : "Abraham
Lincoln The fame of such n character
brightening with the progress of humanity
can bo measured only by the limits of the
world's gratitude and the bounds of timo. "
Senator Kvarts , who in the convention in
1SDO had moved- make unanimous the nom
ination of Lincoln , rcsoouded. Ho said : 'T
am proud to bo numbered with the members
of this club and to take part In this tribute to
Abraham Lincoln. Where can we find fame
like this } His is a fame like that of Washing
ton , and liU earner reflects upon Illinois
a glory like that which Washington
gave to Virginia , " Senator Evarts bricflv
outlined the career of Lincoln , comparing his
fame with that of King David. After the
great' series of debates with Stephen A.
Douglas.ho was the leader not of u party ,
but of the nation , that had risen to shako oft
the encumbrances that bound its limbs , said
Mr. Evarts. "Though without an army or
navy this nation was able , as It would bo
again , to equip on the sea and land an arma
ment able to cope with the armies of the
world , and Lincoln lived to see .peace over u
subjected , not a compromised , rebellion.
[ Applause. ] There was nothing left in the
stages of human greatness but that this
chosen leader should bo u martyr , [ applause ]
and that ho should have been stricken down
on Good Friday us u martyr of liberty adds
to his glory. "
"Tho Republican Party Summoned Into
cxisxcnco at the call of fcoodom , trained in n
school of unparalleled responsibility , Itstands
to-day with a past that In glorious and a fu
ture filled with promise , " was responded to
by Senator John C. Spoonor , of Wisccnsln.
Senator Spooner was received with hcaity
applause. Ho sketched the hlHtory and
achievement * of the party nnd continued as
follows : "Tho coming campaign shoud ) not
bo fought on economic ( | ue.Htlonn'alono. The
question of civil service reform which gives
all the ofllccs to ono party and which folds
Eugcno HJgglns to its bosom , Is not the only
issues. The petition of American Industry
and of American labor demaudsournttenUon.
The summer school at Red Top , of Prof. Car
lisle , had scarcely concluded its labors
before the administration won tlio applanso
of all free trade England , with the smiling
acquiescence of the northern democracy. The
grcutmanufucturingiitateof Tcxa * [ laughter ]
has the chairmanship of the house committee
of ways and menus and the democrats of the
north have but ono member. Thuso men are
not fit to have charge of the Interests of
American labor. In the coining contest Now
York will havd a place of honor and 6f res
ponslblllty and you can be assured that tbo
republican states of the west nnd tlio north
west will not fail you. "
Senator Sherman's toast was : "A Frco
Ballot and a Fair Count. " From
the time of Washington , ho had
found the great patriots of America had
dwelt upon a frco ballot us the basis of our
liborties. Even Grover Cleveland dwelt
upon this In ono of his messages not the last
one. [ Luughtciji That was devoted to pav
ing the way for another campaign. Had
there been a frco ballot and a fair count , in
lbS4 .lames G. Blalne would have been
elected. [ Tremendous applause ] . All over
the north , as well as the south , the demo
cratic party has tried to corrupt the
ballot , and in Ohio even the democratic
old Roman , Thurman , [ applause ] hud been
prosecuting these enemies of the republic.
It is in the power of the national honso of
representatives to pass upon the qunlillca
tlons of its members , and in this matter the
speaker believed the republican party hud
been direlcct. Several of the southern states
would to-day bo republican If there was a
fair count , and If the republican party does
not do its duty in this matter the democratic
party will break down the industries of the
country. "Wo have been punished by one
term of the democratic party , " said Senator
Sherman , "and I think will not be punished
with a second term like it"
"Tho Union Soldier The republic that ho
saved in war , he saved in peace , " was re
sponded to by Senator Manderson , of Ne
braska. Tlio speaker was very severe upon
President Cleveland's pension vetoes , speak
ing of the dependent pension bill us u most
beneficent measure nnd the pension list as u
roll of honor and n patent of nobility. The
survivors of the war do not demand service
pensions , ho said , but they do demand that
when ono of thoirnumber is'disnblcd ho shall
bo cared f6r by the government ho served und
saved. [ Applauso. ]
Congressman McKinley , of Ohio , spoke
upon the tariff.
Senator Allison , of Iowa , lespondcd to
"The Surplus The republican paity sinoto
the rock of national resources and abundant
streams of revenue gushed forth. " Could
It now speak the word of command the HewIng -
Ing tide would ceaso. Senator Allison did
not get a chance to begin until midnight and
said ho would not break the Sabbath by
speaking. Ho simply referred to the man
agement of the muional finances by the re
publican party , showing how the credit of
the government had been improved nnd the
war carried on , although the government

A SENSATIONAL ROBBERY.
Thrown Down and Itoblpd In u San
Stin Frnncisco Chronicle : Just before
the curtain rose on "A Dsxrk Secret" at
the California thentru hint nitfht u 111:111 :
in the gallery was thrown down by
three rouglib nnd.robbod of $81)f ) ( in fjokl.
The theatre wns packed undliio moin-
bor.s of tlio orchestra wore lllinp to tliolr
iiluuuH , when Albert und Louib Mund-
lienk , two youiiff Germans , residing at
1081 Sutler street , entered the b'nllory
accompanied by their hihtor , 11 youiifr
lady. Albert carried in a Hack , tucked
away in his right hip pocket , $8M ( ) ,
mostly in doublu eagles. There was a
dense throng of puonlo Btunduig behind
the rear tiers in tlio gallery , and the
little party of tlireo had to fall in single
lllo to move down to their previously
retained Beats. Louis pusliud on in au-
viincu , witli Albert close at his hculs
and the bistor following , Albert had
jtibt begun the descent of tlio aisle
when no felt a hand at his hip
pocket. Ho turned quickly , but at the
movement both of his hand's wcro fcoizod
and wrenched in a rough and painful
way behind him. lib was bent forward ,
a knee was pressed on his baclc , and he
foil to the iloor. There was iv surge in
the crowd , aml a great trampling about.
Albert's pantalooria wore torn at the
knee , und his right hand as ho lay pros
trate was trod upon and crushed.
In another moment the grasp' upon
him 1'oliun.ulsliod and. he leaped to liib
foot. Ho saw-throe men retiring-through
the crowd and shoving people violently
about until they wore lost to viow. He
thought he saw one of the men hitnd th
bag of golorto another , nnd caught a fair
glimpse of the lattur'b faco. His slater
was a spectator of the whole alTair , but
was too agitated to take cognisance of
anything. Such was the jam in the the
ater that few beyond these within a
radius of a few feet know aught of tha
stiirtling episode. A moment inoro the '
orcheitra opened , tlio curtain rose and
the play began. Tlio Mundhenk party ,
however , were not among those who
heeded the performance , for _ as their
entire fortunes was centered in that bag
of gold , they could have no thought
aside from it. With tears streaming
down their faces , wild with excitement ,
the three ran down the stairs , crying ,
The policeman on that beat rau Into a
the theater , other c-llieers and detectives
were called , and a quiet search of tha
house began. On the end of the fifth
center row bat a young man and run
ning his eyes over the audience , Albert
Mundhohk indicated him as the ono to
whom the stolen packet had been
handed , lie was instantly taken into
uiibtody. Albert then pointed out two
boys of whom ho was strongly suspicious.
They , too , were taken to tlio station.
When the play ended a close watch was
kept on the crowd pouring out of tbo
gallery , but without results. After the
house was emptied the lights were kept
burning by special orderund r. thorough
faoarch was made of the theater in ev < ry
part. Nothing was found. Mundheuu :
was then taken to tbo city prison an
confronted for a moro careful scrutiny
with tbo throe prisoners. He re-
alllrmcd bis identuication of the first
one , but desired to let the others go , as
nothing was found upon their persons
nnd ho was not sure of his judgment ro-
them. They were dismissed.
Tlio man held is u youth nineteen
years old , giving the name of Charles
Randal Pike. Ho wept and bemoaned
his ill-luck when told that ho must re
main in custody. Nothing was found
in ills pockets.
"I live witli my parents at 87 Prairie
street , " ho said. "Wo moved here
from Lcavonworth , Kan. , about throe
months ago. I hud a scat la the gallery
of tlio California theater to-night , at
Ih-ht down near the front. Later I
moAod back to sit with a friepd. I
never saw Mundhonk before , and know
nothing of tlio robbery until ho tapped
mo on tlio shoulder und said , 'This IB
tlio man. ' Hois mistaken , and that's
all about it. "
Neither of the Mundhonk brothers
can speak much English. Albert is a
baker , and had worked hero tlireo years
until ho wont out on the present strike.
Louis is a blacksmith by trade , and
came hero a few weeks ago from the
mountains , Albert explains the pres
ence of so much money in his pocket
with the statement that it was their *
joint funds , tlio savings of years , nnd i
they had everything packed up ready
to move this morning to Wotfconvillo ,
Santa Cruz county , where they were to
