Offhand, I would suspect the clear tube to be overflow while the black (smaller and connected at the bottom of the bowl near a bleeder screw) would be drain hose for removing stale or contaminated fuel inside the carb's bowl. As long as their is no suction on any of the tubes with the engine running, you should be OK. Should there be suction felt at the free end, then it should be connected somewhere and most likely would be to the fuel valve/petcock or must be plugged.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

What is the compression on the cylinder compared to the other cylinders? It should be within 10%. Some causes can be - as you suggested - the valve stem seals. Also, the sleeve could be rusted, as the valves could have been open on that cylinder. Generally speaking, on a 4-cylinder motor 1 cylinder has both its valves closed, 1 has both open, 1 has an inlet valve open and one has an exhaust valve open at any given time. Another possibility is that the valve could be sticky - try Wynn's Valve Ease or a similar product.
