' VS^shingtoh-, April 14.^t literary bureau in the interrot of General James W. Denver as a Presidential candidate has been started, and its first issue consists of a bi- ography and a sheet of brief 'interviews, favorable for Denver, from Congressmen Tucker of Virginia, Cox of New York, Wood, of Indiana, Belford of Colorado, youug of Tennessee, Bosecrans of Cali- fornia, Henley of California^ Morgan of Missouri, and -Senator- Williams of Ken- tucky. The most inteWsting thing is an anonymous Interview, in which General Denver's points are graphically presented. They are that his grand- father was an . Irish patriot of 1798. His mother was a German. He wasborn in Yitginia, resides in Ohio, has resided In Missouri, Kansas and California, so that he .stands the chance of being a favorite son of five States. His Democracy and Virginian birth make him all right in the South, and his service in the army, from which he re- sighed in April, 1863, makes him all rjght North, and besides all that he is a stock- raiser in Ohio. "If the people are grieved on the wool question let them put him up as the wool candidate to represent the farm- era" He is described as a good second choice in the West, as not objectionable in the East, and one whgm the South would yield to. COKGKESSIONAI- EXCLUS1VENES9. The recent order of the House of Repre- sentatives setting apart a certain space in the restaurant lor the exclusive use of mem- bers has raised an unpleasant breeze among the army of Congressional employes as well as others. Heretofore everybody was good enough to go in and occupy ■ any seat that happened to be vacant, but the present House, limitating' the Senate in the line of- aristocratic exclusiveness, concluded to put- up partitions, thus walling off the common herd while they were absorbing food and drink. The majority of the House employes and committee clerks held a meeting Saturday night to give vent to their feelings. They openly characterized as contemptible the conduct of any member of Congress who thought himself "too^Jgood" to associate with the employes. They resolved that if Representatives persisted in their, course they would get up a circular for distribution in Congressional districts setting forth that the men in Congress have set. up a degrad- ing distinction between themselves and those who work for a living. Many Con- gressmen are seriously exercised over the matter,-and have been quick to^disclaim all responsibility. The discontent has become so loud in the last day or .two tiyit it is more than probable the obnoxious order will be rescinded. . • an anti - prohibition pbotecxbve league. A Protective League was organized in this cityj at a meeting of about four hun- dred German-American citizens.Thursday night. In the platform adoptedthe League says: We hold: That the Constitution of the United-States, based on the Declaration of In- dependence, guarantees the enjoyment of per- sonal. civil and religious liberty, and the pur- Suitof happinesg, and warrants-the enactment Of no'laws whictf%eek to abridge or restrict the same'; that all existing prohibitory laws Or contemplated legislation which tend to abridge personal rights, are tyrannical in- fringements on constitutional guarantees,and should he respectively repealed and op-, posed: that all Sunday laws which abridge religious liberty and prevent the word- ing classes from enjoyingjfihe public libraries, inuseums, art galleries arid public parks are tyrannical ana unjust, and should be re- pealed, for-Sunday was made for man, and not man for Sunday; that the 'Public School System' is the bulwark of our institutions, and mustjbe kept clear of andtfree from alliseo- tarian influence and interference; thataffcor- ganlzed eccle(?iasticat interfcpenee in civil'af- fairs is in- violation of the spirit and letter bf the Constitution, the geniu&^of American in- stitutions, and is demoralizing and pernicious, and must be restrained: that all private and corporate property, whether real or personal, should bear the burden Of taxatlon-pqually. Several prominent speakers- addressed the Leagufi, Representatives Murphy and Welt- er, of Iowa, among the number. Letters from Carl Schurz, Senators Edmunds, Sen- ator Morgan, Representative Deuster and Hon. Ben Butterworth were read, and the platform and constitution were adopted. The constitution provides for a National League, with a National Central Committee in this city, and State Centtai Committees in each State. _ ° abe postals going out op fashion? Acting Third Assistant PostmastePGen* eral Madison Davis has prepared a state- ment showing that for the quarter ended March' SI the number of two-cent stamps sold had increased twenty-seven percent, over the number of two and three-cent stamps sold in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The same quarter shoW9 a decrease in the number of postal*cards issued amounting to 10,000,000. little VQRK done by the house. Among the bills reported favorably to the House Saturday was one by Mr. Murphy for the acceptance by the United States of the grant of the Illinois & Michigan Canal. Mr. Thompson moved to rescind the order by which the House had been considering Pub» lie Building bills. He held tbat the order was general or standing, and therefore liable to repeal. The Speaker held that the mo- tion was clearly noy>rivileged, and submitted the decision to the House, which determined, 7T to 101, that it was not. Public business was then suspended, and resolutions of regret at the death of the late Thomas H. Herndon, of Alabama, were considered. After eulogies had been delivered by Messrs. Jones, Forney, Dowd, Culberson, Henderson, Herbert, Shel- ley and Oates, the House adjourned asa mark of respect. Dayton, O., ApriM4.—Michaels, arrest- edfhere Friday on suspicion of being the Wrecker of the Pan-Handle express last Thursday night, was identified' Sunday aft- ernoon by Conductor Pierson, who had charge of the wrecked train, aata tramp ho bad p* off only a few days before. The measurement of his feet also corresponds with-the tracks in the mud about the'tool house. Michaels admtts?that feels a tramp, and that he was in the vicinity of the wreck on Thursday, but claims Innocence. There is a strong feeling against him, but so far the evidences merely circumstantial. Launching an American Steel Cruiser.
