The river and harbor bill this year
appropriates $17,342,000 for river and
harbor improvement This is the lar
gest appropriation for such purposes on
record, exceeding the last appropriation
by over $7,000,000. Of the amount ap
propiiated, the Mississippi river gets
$5,400,000, which is not a cent too much
for such a mighty -highway. That
money, judiciously expended, will work
wonders for the channel.
THE CONTEST BEGUN.
The contest over the disputed seats
in Congress began Saturday; the Demo
crats having resolved, as a last resort,to
filibuster to defeat the programme of
the Republicans in forcing the contest
ed election cases upon the House; Sat
urday when the roll of States was called
it was found there was not a quorum
present, and the J5ergeant-at-Arms was
ordered by the Speaker to proceed and
arrest and bring before the House such
of the absent Members as he could find.
He succeeded in finding five who pre
sented their reasons for absence and
were excused, Mr, Calkins, Republican,
of Indlano seems to be running
the contestedeases, stating that if a
si milar occurrence took place he would
insist upon-thi' enforcement of the
Monday, upon the opening of the
House a roll call showlefL no quorum
again, and the SergeanWatfArmswas
ordered to go in quest of, th absentees.
He succeeded in finaingirae, Mr. Van
Vorhis, of New York.ijfho gave his
reason for absence and was excused.
Continued roll calls showed no quorum
thoughttore were presenVin the House
223 members,! "
Yesterday th roll call showeduo
quorum, thiTdoors were closed and the
SergeanttefeAxms instructed to go out
in' search of missing (members.:' He
succeeded inflnding Mr. Tucker, of Vir

planatlon and was excused. The Dem
ocrats sat around, playing mum, until
the Reirnesntr were compelled to ad
journ. Thus' Mr. Calkins game was
blocked for the third day.
Mr. Randall of Pennsylvania, is man
aging the game of blockcfpr the Demo
crats, and seems to be doing it pretty
effectually. If sixty Democrats hold
out they can clog proceedings till the
Republicans get tired andgive up the

An Investigation and
Albany, May 23. The? Assembly
special committee, appointed to exam
ine certain life insurance receiverships
made its report to-day. -it is very
lengthy and condemns the management
of several of the companies Ifrsevere
terms It says of the universal North
America and companies associated with
the latter: "It may be said that swin
dler succeeded swindler, company swin
dled company until the last one, empty
and denuded of all available assets, fell
into the receiver's haDds."
The Globe had been a factor in a
grand real estate speculation. Through
out the insurance department seems to
have been powerless and indifferent in
asserting its authority or protecting
policy holders. i
The report says of receiverships: Not
one of them was so managed as to re
store the company to a solvent state,
nor does any such policy appear to have
The report says that among jt-he scores
and hundredslof orders of (xurt made
in various legal proceedings connected
with the administration of these trusts
avast majority were signed by one
Judge. Extraordinary blanks were pre
pared by counsel for the receiver. One
bore the name of this Judge printed in
anticipation of future needs. Espe
cially was it true that orders directing
money to be paid were signed by him
to almost the entire exclusion of bis as
sociates. This fact, in and of itself,
would reflect favorably upon his
Industry and upon his willingness to
assume responsibility, and would war
rant no discrediting imputation, but
the very expense and delay which are
more questionable incidents of receiv
erships are inseperably connected with
these orders. Many of the individual
faymertts seemed wasteful and reek
ess, ifone of them could ever have
been made and no doubtful line of
policy on the part of any receiver could
have possessed any efficiency except for
this judicial sanction. The report after
f urthervco somen ts on, the course of
Judge Westbrook adds that such an of
ficial in such circumstances was not
justified in repeatedly signing orders
that will not stand the test of close in
spection, although they were consented
to by these among whom the money was
divided. JTo say that such' consent re
lieves the Judge from responsible and
attentive action is to assert an unwor
thy and-in tolerable conception of the
nature of the judicial functions.

teemed so odd wheh thdahnounce-
ent was first made of the praetiabili-
ty of packing electricity in the storage
batteries that for awhile the idea serv
ed only as a basis for jokes. But the
occasional accounts which have come
from over the water of, marked success
in thismethod of using the electric fluid
have turned joke into serious reality
and theory into real, work.- The best
proof that the storage plan is a service
able one is given by the batteries just
arrived on the steamer Labrador from
Havre. These batteries were charged
in Paris, ten days before the steamer
sailed. Some of them were used on the
voyage and fumiseed to the lamps a
clear and steady current of electricity,
yielding a more satisfactory light than
that which comes directly from dyna
mo. If the practicability of this system
is permanently proved, it is a great
step: toward the general and economical
introduction of electric light. The bat
teries can be deposited in an out-of-the-way
corner in any house or factory,
and , refilled at slight expense when
empty. The thought of sending elec
tricity around in wagons and delivering
it at people's houses like milk or
groceries does seem a curious novelty.
Yet it is not more really queer to us
than would have been the idea of fric
tion matches to our forefathers a cen
tury, ago. That would have required
fully as much credulity as we are called
on to exercise in regard to the perfect
working of the storage and delivery
system for. electricity. The first com
mercial success of this plan will be for
dwellings and other places of moderate
size, where only few lights are wanted
and where it will not pay to keep an
engine going for the purpose. Then
let the gas men look well to their me
tres and see how low per thousand
thej can make out their bills.
