He said that what he desirel first in quired into was bla connection with the C*t'?;is.

He appealed to the sense of justice of tha members of the committee to prooeedspeedily to the point alluded to, and with open doora. The committee decided to grant the request of the Secretary so far as toexamlnebimOrston his transactions with Cat ell, but reserved the question of public seniors for further consideration. The Sec retary will be heard to morrow.

Tanllw la the District. uefitnt NECESSITY FOR CONGRESSIONAL ACTION. In (be serai? to day tbe President pro tern. (Mr. Ferry) laid before tbat body a communication from tbe District Commit ?loners calling tbe attention of tbe Senate to tbe necessity of legislation providing for a Just measure of taxation npon property in tbe District, and especially tbe necessity of providing for a tax to be levied for tbe fiscal year endiDg June 30, l&77,so as to provide the public revenues without wblcb tbe gov ernment cannot be carried on in tbe new Oscal year wblcb will begin In less tban five weeks. Tbey state that tbe law levying a tax for tbe support oftbe government for tbe fiscal year now just closing went into effect March 3,1875, and even from that date to the time when tbe tax became payable too short a period Intervened for the efficient execu tion of tbe provisions of tbe law with refer ence to tbe making of assessments and of re turns, and tbe preparation of the proper books and records. Since tbe assessment on which the tax for the present flscal year wis made, taxable re hi estate of the District has, it Is estimated, been increased by upwards of >3,000,000, by buildings which have been began, constructed or competed during tbe past year. In order, therefore, that such property may bear its pro portion of the buraen of taxation for the new fiscal year, soon to begin, prompt legis lation is absolutely needed. Furthermore, tbe present fiscal year will close In less than five weeks and revenues must be provided for tbe support of tbe government during tbe fiscal year so soon to begin. Tbe importance of bavlng a well devised tax law, giving ample time within which it may be care fully executed cannot be too strongly urged upon the attention of the Senate. Tbe sub ject is uow before that branch of tbe Na tional Legislature for consideration; a bill bavlng passed tbe House several weeks ago. In our Judgment it Is expedient that the legislation upon thla subject at the pres ent session of Congress sball take the form or a permanent law Imposing a Just measure of taxation within tbe District and prescrib ing tbe tax which shall hereafter be an nually levied npon taxable property. In tbe absence of such a law tbe property In terests of tbe District are injured by tbe un certainty both as to the measure of taxes and as to the property wblcb Is to be subject to taxation. The whole system Is liable to change in each succeeding year. At the same time, by a permanent Taw upon the subject Congress will be relieved from the labor or maturing every year a measure for taxing District property. Then will be avoided also tbe Injustice and inconvenience wblcb to some extent must always result when a law upon ?ucb a subject is delayed or is hastily pre Fiared or executed. We trust, therefore, that t may be practicable for tbe Senate at an early day to give its attention to legislating permanently an equitable measure of taxa tion on property In tbe District, indicating the property tbat is to be taxed, and pre scribing tbe mode of assessment and collec tion of taxes. The letter was referred to the District Com mittee. Mr. Spencer, chairman of the com mittee,explained that they bad not had time to fully consider the House bill, but would be able to report it in a few days. The Blalae Bond Investigation. FISHER, ATKINS, AND OTHERS EXAMINED. The sub-Committee of the Judiciary Com mittee of tbe House tbls morning examined Warren Fisher and Ezra D. Atkins both of boston. Fisher denied (as alleged in the Boston Hernhl) that be had ever given Mr. Blaine bonds to tbe amount of with out any consideration. Tbe most important witness examined was J. Mulligan, of Boston, at present treas urer of tbe Qlobe Ibeater. Mulligan was in ItClln theemploy of Warren Flsberas book keeper. The latter delivered 9130,000 of bonds to Mr. Blaine, who sold them to par lies in Maine. Subsequently the invest ment proved a failure, and Mr. Blaine was pressed by tbe parties to whom he made the sales aud took them up. Tbe transactions between Blaine and Fisher were voluminous, ai.d when a settlement was made Fisher was tick and Mulligan arranged it forbim. At one of tbe interviews Mr. Blaine told Mr. Fisher in the presence of Mulligan tdat he had not realized a large sum of money from tbe sales be made in Maine because he bad to tane the bonds up. witness had at one time heard Mr. Atkins say that though Mr. Blaine did take up the bonds, be got Uiem off on Tom Soott, who aold them to the Union Pacific railroad company at 80 cents on the dollar. This testimony produced quite a sensa tion. If this witness is telling tbe truth be is contradicted both by Atkins aud Fis'ier, as both preceded him as wltnessas, and swore with much positlvene-?s thV. they knew nothing of tbe 75 bonds held by the Union Pacific railroad company. Qe is also flatly contradicted by tbe previous testl mony of Col. Scott. He gave bis testimony witb a good deal of assurance and without hesitation, and was quite willing to disclose ailbeknew;ln fact, seemed anxious to do so. Tbe Investigation will be resumed to monow, wben Mr. Blaine's friends say tbey can completely break blm down. Atkins, who contradicts blm. Is one of tbe most prominent and reputable merchant* In Bos ton. mr. Atkins Is preparing a statement deny ing tbat be ever told Milllgan tbat Col.Scott took the bonds from Blaine wbich were after wards sold to tbe Union Pacific Railroad Company.

Tbe following la an extract from a letter dated Custer City, May 3d, to a brother in this city, written by a person who worked ten years la tbe mines of Montana, and went to tbe Black Hills to try his lack: "We are in tbe Black Hills at last. We saw no Indians on our trip, but found four wounded and seven dead persona. Two of tho*e killed were women-one white and one colored. We found tbe bodies terribly mutilated In a creek, and it was evident tbat both bad been outraged before being murdered. SiDce tbe first of April about twenty In all have been killed by tbe In. dlans. It la no longer safe to prospect in small parties. Not mucb mining has been done, but there 14 doubtless gold here. Hundreds are leaving tbe country and run ning it down. I would not advise any one to come uere at present, bat to wait aotll tbe mines are more worked.

A petition largely signed by tbe pbysi. clans of Mobile, Alabama, was presented in tbe Senate today, protesting against tbe passage or tbe bill to incorporate tbe "Na tional Surgical Institute of the District of Columbia.' The Rhode Island Election.?Tbe Rhode Island legislature met at Newport yesterday and decided that J. M.

He would then pay to Japan the original amount after these deductions, with 5 per cent, interest. This would make the amount to be paid to Japan *795,f5?, and leave ?473,000 In gold to be cov ered into the Treasury. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. - Prayer was offered this morning by Rev. Dr. Butler, Chaplain of the House In the 43d Congress. Mr. Jones (Ky.) offered a resolution, which was referred to the Committee 00 Banking and Currency, declaring it to be the sense of the Honse, as well as of the oountry at large, that Congress should speedily repeal there sumption act of 1875, or so much thereof as requires resumption at a specific day; that the bill to be reported should provide that there be not contraction; that if should pro vide for the gradual abolition of the nation al bank system; for a speedy retuia to the payment cf gold and silver consistent with the interests of the oountry, in order that the people may be relieved of the distress under which they now labor. Mr. Baker (Ind.) asked leave to offera reso lution requesting the Secretary of the Treas. ury, If not Incompatible with the public In terests, to report the amount or luternal revenue taxes paid by the Baltimore and Obio railroad and the Central Pacific rail read from 1804 to 1*71 on their undivided profits. Mr. O'Brien objected. A CONTEST then arose on the question 0. consideration, whether the House should take up the con tested election case of Spencer vs. Morey, the army bill, or some other matters. Mr. Morey asked that the contested case be taken up. and under a personal explanation stated bis reasons. He wanted to say that a man named Seelye has testified before the special committee on affairs In Louisiana, and made certain charges which ,so far as they affected bis (Morey's) honor and Integrity, were utterly false and infamous. Seelye, ac cording to his own testimony, was a crl mlnal, and tried to fix criminality upon him (Morey) Last summer this man sent Morey a paper which be said contained charges, and for which be demanded money to prevent their publication, in December, 1875, be was aware that be would have to meet a contest here; that most of the members were strang ers to him, and he wanted the case tried upon its merits. He wanted no prejudice to enter into the case, and therefore be felt that be con Id pay a few hundred dollars to have the falieboods suppressed. Whether this was an error of Judgment or not, lie had paid the money. If he bail been told twelve months ago that be would be subjected to blackmail be would bave scouted the idea, but no man can tell what he will do till the time oomes. Aaaotig the charges made by Seelye was one to the effect that Morey virtually eon trolled the army in 1874 In Louisiana. He bad read testimony taken by the Wheeler committee in 1875 to show that he always opposed the employment of troops, and that be bad also always opposed extreme meas ures. He wanted to add In conclusion that all of 8eelye's testimony affecting his integ rity was false. He appealed to the House, however, to take ap the case, to-day, and dispeseof it, because be wanted to go to New Orleans and be present at the Investigation tow in progress there. The House then took up the election case. Mr. McCrary (Iowa) advocated the recom mitting of the case to the people. Tfce Turf.

It was gotten completely under control about midnight, alter having burned a passage clear Uirough the center ot the St. Louis suburbs from the west to the east, extending on the north in some places to the neighborhood of 8t. John street. Many or the residents of that street moved their effects to places of safety. The number of houses destroyed is estimated at about TOO. The amount of insurance is large, but at present Impossible to learn how much. Many of the suilerer* were sheltered last night In the riding school drill shed and ar tillery barracks. A meeting to devise means for their relief is called for to-day. Several residences inside the walls were fired by sparks, bnt fortunately discovered and ex tlngulsbed before doing much damage. Three or four childreu are missing, and are supposed to have perished in the flame*. Owing to the extent of the fire the water supply gave ont, and but for the exertions of the "b" battery aud citizens In palling down wooden houses and out-bnildlngs the are would have been much more serious.

AFTER ARCTIC HMERiLI. A New Polar liptdlUs* Fitting Ont. New York, May 31?A Norwich (Coon.) dispatch says:?An expedition is now being fitted ont in which several famous Investi gators of the Polar seas participate. It ap pears that during the search of the Tigress for the Polaris over a year ago rich veins of graphite were discovered in Cumberland in let. On the return to St. John's, Lieutenant W. A. Mlntzen, U. 8. naval engineer, char tered a small steamer and went back and continued his mineral survey. He found large beds of graphite and mica, but owing to the lateness of the season was unable to bring any away. The top-sail schooner Eta has been recently fitting at New London, and will sail next Monday under Mlat/.er's command and under government auspices to get a cargo or these minerals and make further collections of Arct ic flora and fauna for the 8mlthsonlan Institute. CapL Jas. Ruddington, of Groton. Connecticut, is the Era's sailing master. Esquimaux Joe ac companies this expedition, as do other Arc tic voyagers of long experience. The Era is a vessel of ICO tons burden, bnilt for the coasting trade, but has made whaling voy ages to the Polar regions under Capt. Geo. Tyson, of Polaris fame. She Is well pro vided with mining toon and laborers for quarrying, and as deposits are situated some distance up the mountain side, they will take 3,000 feet of tramway in order to more easily load the vessel, and a quantity of lumber to erect tool bouses and buildings for the purpose of observation. The mineral is fonnd In almost inaccessible place*, and the deposits, though almost pure, are under a rock as hard aa flint. Provision, therefore, is made for blasting on an extensive scale. * FORE1UX HEWS. The Winner of the Derby. Loudon, May 31, 3 30 Tae mineral olt won the Derby?15 ran.
