At the depot ia Omaha last week Just
after the rush from the waiting room to
the traiu the depot master discovered in
the deserted room a Tery small infant
lying in one of the seats. The railroad
employe waited for a few moments to
see if somebody would claim the child,
when the almost absurd probability of
some mother bavins; forgotten it in her
hurry flashed upon his niiud. He went
to the train, which was about to depart,
and standing in the door of one of the
fullest coaches asked in a loud roieo if
anybody had forgotten some baggage in
the shape of an infant. With a shriek a
woman jumped from her seat and rushed
to the depot master saying she had for
gotten her baby and almost fell on her
lnees iu e latitude to the smiling official.

of republican employes from United
States arsenals, stating that under it
honorably discharged soldiers of the
anion aruiy and widows and daughters
of soldiers "had been discharged, and di
recting the secretary of war to transmit
to the senate forthwith full information
as to such order, stating fully whether
the necessities of the department re
quired that the order should be issued,
and why an erder issued on public busi
ness should lie marked "confidential"
The resolutions went over.
Hocse In the houss on the 1st a
number of bills were introduced, but ac

on epidemic diseases to consider and re
port before the adjournment of this ses
sion of congress additional legislation
to prevent the importation of contagious
or infectious diseases from foreign coun
tries on the coast and boundaries of the
I'nitod States was taken up, and Mr.
Call proceeded to speak upon it It whs
finally referred to the committee on epi
demic diseases. Tho conference report
on the deficiency bill was presented by
Mr. Hole and explained by him. There
wero four matters, he said, on which
agreement had not been leached. One
was the item to pay the widow of the late
Chief Justice Waits the balance of the
year's salar3', the house conferees insist
ing that there was no precedent for it.
Another was the item to pay a year's
Balary to the widow of the internal reve
nue official who remained at bid post in
Florida and died there of yellow fever.
Another was a proposition to extend the
land laws to No Man's land, and another
was an appropriation for the industrial
christian home of Utah Territory. The
conference report nos agreed to and the
senate insisted on its disagreement to
the items. The conference report on
the joint resolution to aid the sufferers
from yellow fever was presented and
agreed to, after some explanations by

Sbxate. In the senate on the 3d, Mr.
Allison, from the committee on finance,
reported back the house tariff bill with
an amendment in the nature of a substi
tute. It was placed on the calendar and
ordered printed. He said that the ma
jority and minority reports to accompa
ny the bill would be filed to-morrow or
Friday, and gave notice that ho would
call up the bill for consideration Mon
day. After Mr. Allison had introduced
the tariff bill he said that he would call
it up on Monday next. Unanimous con
sent was given to Mr. Sherman, and he
addressed the senate on the bill as re
ported. In doing so he complimented
the sub-committee on the work done and
severely criticised tho house bill. Tho

Mr. Hale's resolution of Monday, calling
on the secretary of war for an explana
tion of General Bennet's order as to the
discharge of republican employes in the
United States armories and arsenals.

The majority Ki-ort on the tariff bill
declares the demand for a careful and
thorough revision of the revenue lai
First-To reduce the national reve
nues, which are now excessive.
Second-To protect the honert im

disastrous consequences resulting from
fraudulent undervaluations of imported

prices or by new elements of sources oi

count of the inadequate rates levied on
The public demand for a reduction oi
the revenue, the majority says, is more
urgent on account of the inexcusable re-ti-ntion
in the national treasury or on
depo-it in national banks of vust sum?
of money in cxeess of the amount re
quired ti pay t he current demands upon
the treasury and to meet maturing obli
gations of the government. '1 his sum,
with the additions which -n ill accrue
within four months, and before any leg
islative action reducing tho revenues
can be effective, it declares, will be suffi
cient to pay in full the outstanding iS

This accumulation, it insists, could and
should be profitably avoided and the
probability of a business disaster averted
by a prompt return of the money col
lected from the people to the channels
of trade through the purchase of United
States bonds that could at nil times be
obtained at prices which to the govern
ment wonld have been equal to an in
vestment of the otherwise unprofitable
fnnd, at s rate of interest of not less than
2 per cent. Tho majority expresses its
conviction of the inadequacy of the
house bill as a remedial measure for
First That it would probably increase
instead of diminish the revenue.
SecondIt provides no remedy for
undervaluations, but oil the contiary in
vites and gives immunity to fraud hy
substituting ad valorem for specific du
ties. Third It does not remedy any in
equalities or anomalies, or cure any de
fects of the existing law, If foreign
manufacturers should, the majority says,
through the changes made iu the cotton
and wooh n schedules, secure :t quarter
of the ni.irlo't now held by the American
manufacturers, and this it thinks a very
conservative estimate, the additional
duty would reach at least SWO.OOO.O'K).
The expansion of imports, it declares,
would also follow the reduction of rates
on china porcelain, common window
class, manufactures of iron and steel,
flax, jute, hemp, and many minor man
ufactures. With greatly augmented
revenues, it declares the house bill per
petuates the existing infirmities created
by its obscurities and faulty con-traction,
doubts and ambiguities which must
multiply indefinitely the present con
fusion. The results, however, the maj
ority says, which would flow from the
figures of the bill as a corrective meas
ure would be much less disastrous to the
material interests of the country than
those which must surely follow the
adoption of its vicious affirmative prop
osition. The feature which most clearly
indicates its pnrpose is the proposed
substitution of ad valorem for siecifio
THE MrNOIUTY REPORT.
The report of the minority makes a
document of twelve printed pages. It
begins with tho statement that in the
preparation of the substitute for the
house bill no member of the minority of
the committee wns consulted or inform
ed as to its provisions nut ill it nas re
ported to the full committee on the 25th
of September. The minority recites
the work of the sub -committee in hear
ing the statement and arguments and
appeals of the manufacturers and others
who demand the present hk'h rate of
tariff taxation shall he maintained and
M mt cases prompted not by any reve
nue necessities, but alone for the pur
pose of increasing their nun profits at
the excuse of 00,000.000 taxpayers.
Continuing, they say : "It is safe to say
that all the interests by the lii.li pro. i
ective tariff have been fully heard and
have had much influence iu shaping this
substitute, while the great body of the
people, the taxpayers, and victims of
tins policy have not appeared and have
not been heard." It is then said the
short time the substitute has been in the
hands of the minority has made it diffi
cult to ascertain the full effect, but the 1
essential difference between the house
lull and the senate substitute is appar
ent and radical at the outset in the mat
ter of revenue. One is framed in the
interest of the public treasury, the oth
er m theinterestof private pockets-one
is framed m the interests of the whole
people, the other in the interest of 300 -000
manufacturers. One is designed to
reduce both the government revenne
and taxation the taxation especially
which bears heaviest on the necessaries
of ife, the other is intended to raise a
pubh,. revenue, indeed, but to maintain
the private revenues by increasing and

Ottawa dUpateb: Attorney General
Longley. of Xova Scotia, is here Bound
ing the supreme court. He has created
g sensation in the stronghold of Toryism
by his outspoken utterances on national
questions. He is au out-and-out annex
ationist, but simply calls himself all ad
vocate of unrestricted recirocity with
the United States. He said:
The people of Nova Scotia want to
trade with their rn-khWa rather than
build up an unprofitable inter provincial
trade. I tnink Senator Sherman, in his
speeches, has played a great Card to
bring alout annexation. The bluster of
an element of the American people ro
eiiecting Canada could have no avail, for
Anglo-Saxon are not to 1 bull-dozed,
but if other American politicians follow
in the wake of Sherman, British interest
in Canada is in danger. Unrestricted
reciprocity will hot bo bronght alnmt in
a day, for the prejudices of generations
have got to be removed.
Mr. Ixingh-y said that he heard that
a movement was on foot by a syndicate
of capitalists to acquire and consolidate
the Capo Breton coal mining proertiea.
The promoters, ha understood, wero
Americans, and. according to newspaper
reports, Cyrus W. Field wasof the num
ber. The proposed step would have the ef
fect of stiffening prices. The Cape Pro
ton coal miners just now, ho said, wero
at the mercy of the Montreal dealers,
who have not been paving them fair
prices. This, Mr. Longley added, was
the result of trying to divert trade into
Bn unnatural channel. Mr. Longley
concluded a little bilk by stating that
unrestricted reciprocity or commercial
union was the remedy for Nova Scotia,
