Mr. Orth, of Indiana, gave notice in
the House of Representatives yester
day, that he proposed to submit for the
consideration of the House, a proposi
tion to change the present method of
appointing the members of committees.
As now constituted the committees are
practically speaking, the creatures of
the Speaker, who appoints them, and-
who has the power thus, if he so desire,
to control in a great measure the legis
lation of Congress. If he be in favor
of or opposed to the passage of any par
ticular acts he can . so constitute his
committees as to get favorable or un
favorable reports, the report of the com
mittees having much to do with suc
cess or failure of proposed measures
As a point in the way of illustration:
The committee on elections is compos

BIO JOBS Looniivo IIP
All the indications from Washington
point to big jobs looming up in the
present Congress. The new navy
talked about, the Mississippi river im
provement scheme, Eads' Panama
ship railroad, the Florida ship canal,
and the various other schemes suggest
ed, all have much in them foremen of
speculative turn. Each will want some
of Uncle Samuel's cash and the total
asked for will run up into the hun
dreds of millions. It is estimated that
the Mississippi job alone will csll for
about $300,000,000, which will offer a
pretty good opening for enterprising
speculation. Each one of these jobs
already has its particular ring to baek
it, push it and carry it through, and
they will be supplied with all the ne
cessary means to further their schemes.

largely of high-tariff men, and will re
port favorably on measures looking to
a high tariff. It is a well known fact
that much of the legislation of Con
gress passes with little or no discussion,
or fails to pass, on the strength of the
favorable or unfavorable reports of the
committees, the average congressman
lacking either the intelligence or the in
dustry to investigate the merits of the
question for himself, and Deing govern
erned by the statement of the case as
made by the committees. Perhaps it
would not be reasonable to expect that
all congressmen should be well inform
ed on the many questions that come
up for consideration considering the
number of bills introduced and the
varied subjects they refer to. The cau
cus is all-powerful and the committee
is first-cousin to caucus. Hence we see
the vast power which rests in the hands
of the Speaker, while the formation of
the committees is as completely in his
hands as they are now.

GETTIXU BEADY FUR BUSINESS.
The Southern Pacific railroad company
is preparing for business, and proposes
to establish a line of ocean steamers be
tween New Orleans and Europe for the
double purpose of carrying freight to
Europe and immigrants back,
tofore California's wheat had
voyage to reach a European market,
but now steam bears it across the con
tinent in a short time, and steamers in
eight or ten days lay it down in Liver
pool or London, not more than half a
month being required from the time it
leaves the elevator at San Francisco
and Sacramento till it i3 deposited on
the wharves on the other side of the
ocean, This practically places the Pa
cific States in a position to enter as
competitors in the market with the
States of the upper Mississippi, and
gives them a wide litld. It will be to
the interest of the railroad company to
carry such freights at the lowest figure
they can afford, and they can do it at a
low figure, as they propose to load their
ship3 and cars on return trips with im
migrants they propose to secure and lo
cate in the section through which the
road runs. We may expect before long,
to see lurg9 numbers of immigrants
thus landed at New Orleans, and the
tide which has been running to the
Northwest turned to some extent to the
Southwest, reaching over to the Pacific,

to settlers, and is rich in many respects-

THE IV. C. CON FKDE It ATE AR
CHIVES. When Sherman took possession of
Raleigh he captured and carried away
a great portion of the State documents,
letter-books of the Governor, etc., which
were transferred to Washington where
they have since remained. These docu
ments have no other value than that of
being a part of the history of the strug
gle in which North Carolina partici
pated and as such should be in posses
sion of the State. When Senator
Vance was a candidate for Governor
he sought permission to make copies of
his letters to refute the slanders that
were circulated against him by the gar
bled letters which were produced, but
was refused on the ground that the
permission could not be given with
out a special act of Congress, which
was not then in session, notwithstand
ing the fact that garbled copies of
these letters had previously been made,
for which it seems no special act of
Congress was required. Afterwards,
we believe, while in the executive
chair, Gov. Vance made a demand
on the Hon. Secretary of War, Don
Cameron, for a copy of the letters,

AVashingTon, January 5. House.
When the House meet at noon to-day
the number of spectators in the galle
ries was unusually small, and tiie at
tendance of members evidently fell
far short of a quorum. During prayer
and the reading of the journal of the
Here- last day's proceedings, however, a num
a lonz berof members entered and after ex
changing New lear greetings with
their colleagues, took their seats, giving
the chamber its customary appearance
of life and bustle.
Orth, of Indiana, rose to a question
of privilege, stating that it grew out of
and effected the recent appointment of
the commnteei of the House. Before
stating the question specially he said:
"I ask indulgence to announce that it
is my purpose at an early day to intro
duce for consideration and action a
proposition to change the method of
selecting committees. The vast and di
versified interests of the country are
all more or less affected by congression
al legislation and this legislation as is
well known is almost exclusively con
trolled by the action of the commit
tees. For this reason their formation
assumes importance and is invested
with responsibility too great to rest
in the hands of a single individual
however capable and honest and pat
riotic such an individual may be. As
now exercised it is emphatically a one
man power, and such power is always
dangerous and in conflict with the
principles of Republican government.
It is our duty to see that it may not at
some future period be used to the det
riment of the best interests of the peo
ple. Now as to the question of privi
lege. You have seen fit, sir, to assign
me to three committees; namely, sec
ond place on foreign affairs, second
place on rules, and chairman of the
committee on civil service reform. By
the kindness and unwavering confi
dence of my constituents I have been
for twelve years a member of this
House and I am now entering on my
seventh term of service here. With
two exceptions there is not another Re
publican member who has thus long
represented his people. During that
time I have served as a member and
chairman of the committee ob
private land claims, as a member of
the committee on ways and means, and
for ten years as a member of the com
mittee on foreign affairs, a part of such
time as its chairman. With one excep
tion, probably two, I am the only Re
publican member who at any time
prior to this session has ever served as
chairman of any committee of this
House. In view of this fact I submit
that the Speaker in his recent action
has done an injustice to me and to my
constituents. For this injustice there
is, however, no remedy. All that can
be done i3 to protest against it as I
now do for myself and my constitu
ents. For reasons so apparent as to
need no specification I respectfully ask
the House to excuse me from serving
as a member of the committee on
The Speaker: "The Chair does not
understand that it is necessary for him
to vindicate himself by saying any
thing in reply. It must not, however,
be inferred because tbe Chair does not
undertake to challenge any of the
statements charging him with injustice
that the Chair acquiesces in the views
taken by the gentleman from Indiana."
Mr. Orth's request was granted and
he was excused from further service on
the committee on rules.
The regular order, being the call of
committees; was dispensed with.
A resolution was offered by Gibson
(La.) amending the rules as to com
mittee on the Mississippi levees. It
gives the Committee on the Missis
sippi levees power to originate appro-
pnauuu oius relative io me improve
