The Era in giving the cost of
county publishing in the years of
1888, 1889 and 1890 should have
added that the work was performed
by three reputable papers of gen
eral circulation, none of which re
ceived one-half the amount which
has been donated the Era. The
object in having notices published
is to bring the matter contained
therein before the public, and the
three papers successfully covered
the entire county. There is a great
difference between having the
county notkes published in three
papers of general circulation than
having theni printed in one whose

fire hours. Observiner the slimness of
the attendance, Mr. Manderson cmii

a recess was taken for 15 minutes
There were, perhaps, at this time 100
people in the galleries, the crowd of a
closing session having taken possession
of the Capitol. Those who had remained
in tae chamber until early daylight
showedin their jaded faces that the
strain was telling on them.
Mr. Cockrell, who, as chairman of the
appropriations committee, has borne
large part of the burden of the 48 hours
of continuous struggle on appropriation
bills, was among the late arrivals.
At 9:10, when the senate proceedings
were resumed, the vice president an
nounced his signature to the naval ap
propriation bill. It was the last formal
ity be fore the taking of the last import
ant measure to the president. At 9:-15
the vice president announced his signa
ture to the deficiency bill. This was the
last of the appropriation bills, and thus
all oE the great measures for carrying
on the government were either at the
executive mansion or on their way
there. At 10:45 Mr. Voorhees offered a
resolution, which was adopted, for the
appointment of a joint comraitteeof the
two houses, two senators and two repre
sentatives, to wait upon the president
of the United States and inform him
that congress, having completed its busi

Mr. Grosvenor (Rep., O.) caused the

friends of bimetallism. The repeal of
the Sherman act two years ago, he said,
had accomplished more than any other
influence to bring about the hopeful
condition for silver we now observe the
world over. He predicted great results
from the proposed monetary conference.

quite a stir among the silver men. They
all rushed forward and appealed for
