I Lincoln dispatch: Willi tho ndvanct of the maximum rate cases in tho su prcmo court of the United States fori hearing early next spring tho attorney general hoped also to have the case which Is popularly known as tho Elm wood elevator caso also advanced am decided. While tho principle involved In the maximum rate eases Is conceded to bo of tho first Importance, that Involved In the elevator case is scarcely less Im portant. This, If the contention of the railroait company is upheld by the courts, will give to railroad companies the power to control a -monopoly of the grain trade on their lines and farm it out to favorites or two it for tho pur pose of swelling tho revenue of tho company. Tho case originated from tho Mis sourl Pacific declining to grant to tin npplicnnt privileges (necessary to enable him to put up and operate nn olevutor nt the station of Elmwood. Tho ground on which tho application was resisted by the company was that there was already an elevator at that point and that Its capacity was sufllclent to ac commodato the busslncss of tho sur ronnding country.

VOTE TAKEN BY SECTIONS TJe First Narrowly i:apr Defeat by it Itolt of ICcpuhllcatift to tin- Demo- rrotlc Slilr No DUIslon on the Second Tim Secretary llni- powered In Issuo Short Tim Certificates. Washington, Dec .10. When tho House convened to-day three hours re mained for debate on tho bond bill. At 3 p. m. voting begun, Hy the timo the roll call in the first section was half through, It was thought that root enough Republicans would vote against tho ilrst section for bonds to defeat it. Tho first roll call resulted: Yeas, 150; nays, t j3. Probably forty-four HcpublicansVotod against tho bill. On another roll call the first section of tho bond bill .passed by a vote of 100 to 13j. llio second section of the bond bill passed without a division. Mr. Rrosius, Republican, of Penn sylvania opened in favor of the bill. This was the only country on tho globe, ho said, where gold redemption had neither qualification nor limita tion, and where the treasury was without tho power to resist the in cursions of foreign gold grabbers or domestic speculators. Tho revenue deficit was the chief sinner in the coined' of errors which had produced tho present troubles. It was not suitable to the dignity of the govern ment to employ sleuth hounds of for eign syndicates to hunt down gold. The people of this country should have the first opportunity to "help tho trensury out of the tough financial sea. Ho declared that thero was no politics iu the bill. Mr. Parker, Republican, of New Jersey favored tho bill as a good busi ness measure. Mr. Cannon, Republican, of Illinois, in support of the measure, declared that it was a bill to maintain 'specie puyments, which had been resumed under thu wiso direction of tho Repub lican party in 1870. For the 13 years following the resumption the revenues hud always exceeded the expenditures. Twelve hundred million dollars of thu interest paying debt had been dis charged. Since Mr. Cleveland's elec tion in 1803 deficiency, distress, idle ness and panic had followed. Instead of paying 1(10 millions a year on the public debt tho Democrats had bor rowed HW millions. They could tear down und criticise, but they could not build up llio reserve. (Republican applause.) "Wo will not abridge the power of tlie Secretary of thu Treasury," ho continued. "Wo will give him more power. He cannot have too much power if it is used wisely. You, on the other side, will voto against this hill those hi favor of silver at Jfl to 1 because you want to impair tho credit of the country and force us to a silver basis: tlioso who hiipport tho ad ministration, because it wants gold bonds. We, iu our judgment and pa triotism stand ready to pass this bill. If it is rejt'c.ed bv tho Semite, or Pres ident, we shall, at least, have cast our mite toward tho protection of tiie public credit and have given a proph ecy of what wo shall do wheu we come iuto full power In 1S'J7." (Re publican applause.) Mr. Tiiwnoy, Republican of Minne sota, a member of tin: ways and means committee, in support of the bill, called attention to tho President's ur gent appeal to Congress to do some thing boforo adjourning. He knew, and everybody know, that gold bonds would not be authorized bv Congress, and because Congress will not give him authority, he a'nd his Secretary of tho Treasury had already opened' ne gotiations with the same old malodor ous syndlcato for another Issue of 4 per cent bonds. The people of the country weio to be given no opportu nity to subscribe. He read several letters from constituents offering to subscribe for gold bonds. Mr. Marsh, Republican, of Illinois, arose to give his reasons for refusing his support to the bill, but betoro ho had finished his preliminary remarks tho gavel of tho speaker full and the House remained unenlightened. Mr. Hurton, Republican, of Missouri, and Mi. Connolly, Republican, of Ill inois, who have been counted on as opponents of tho bill, gave their sup port to It in brief speeches. Tho debatu was closed for tho re spective sides by Messrs. Crisp and DuUcll, tho former insisting, that the bill was a political measure really in tended to embarrass the trcastirv, whilo thu latter said it was a plain business prouosition to save Interest. Mr. Dalcll attacked thu Carlisle In terview us a violation of the decenclse of public life. Ilrforft thu Smite Tumdoy. Wahiuxoton, Dec. 30.

Although the general opinion is expressed in tho cable dispatches from the United States that the tariff revision bill is not likely to pass the Senate, the measure has caused quito a ilutter in commercial circles. An Irish indus trial organ points out that the pro posed increase in tho duty on woolens will inevritably check a growing trade, and that Irish industries will suffer in consequence. Owing to the great iutcrost excited in Irish goods by the exhibits Hindu at the world's fair, large orders have been placed with tho mills and hand loom weavers in remote districts of Donegal. All tiiis development would be stilled by the adoption of the tariff revision bill. Trouble O'icr Mixed .School, Pkiiiiy, Ok., Dec. 3C Trouble ma. occur over mixed public schools here. A recent decision admits colored chil dren to all public schools of the city. Tho school board and nearly all the white people are bitterly opposed to mixed schools and the board will or der schools discontinued as a last re sort, to prevent mixed schools. Con siderable feeling and indignation over the matter is expressed and trouble may yet occur. A stormy meeting of tho board was held last night Tho colored people declare that they will havo the rights as given tliem by the court. An Ofllclal Hint to General .11 lien. Wamii.noton, Dec. 30. An order issued by the Secretary of War, which reminded army ofllccrs that it Is ex tremely impolitic to publicly discuss the possibilities of war, is construed by the friends of Mujor General Miles as u roundabout thrust nt that ollicer. General Miles has recently written an excellent article over his signature regarding the possibility of war with England us a result of the Venezuelan affair. (oiiiez Again In Santa Clara.

Wasiiinoton. Dec. 38. A conference was held between Speaker Reed und the House managers to-day and the result was an agreement for a voto on the bond bill at 3 o'clock to-morrow, instead Of C o clock to-day. A further arrangement thnt the ways nnd moans was made committee before reporting the bill, shall insert n clause showing that it is not the purpose to retire tho greenbacks. It was also arranged that there shall bo sepuratc votes one on the proposition for a s;o,000,000 bond Issue and an other on the unlimited issue. The conference was satisfactory to all ele ments and the concessions made over came the protests against haste, which led last night to the appointment of a committee of Republican members to wait on Speaker Reed. The ways and means committee adopted the amendment to the bond bill suggested by Mr. Hopkins of Illinois to prevent the accumulation in the .treasury of the greenbacks and their practical retirement without can cellation. The amendment provides that nothing in the act shall be con strued to repeal or modify tho act of 1878 for the reissue of the greenbacks when redeemed. Another amendment was adopted making the bonds issued under the act payable within fifteen years. The second amendment was suggested by Mr. Lacey of Iowa and met the ap proval of the Republican members. In the original draft of the bill it was provided that the bonds should bo re deemable at tho pleasure of tho gov ernment, after live years from their lato. it was thought best to make a fjfinite termination of them. Tho i?ndments were adopted by a strict party voto und the bill will be report ed to tho house as amended. Air. Tarsney of Missouri offered an amendment to repeal the act of 1878 for reissuing thu greenbacks, but failed to got any support for it. The amendment agreed to by tho ways and means committee providing mat the green uncus should be reissued is considered a great concession to dis- satisfied ones. The battle over the. bond bill at I tractcd large crowds to tho House gal leries again to-day. As soon as the I jourunlhad been approved, Mr. Ding i ley, chairman of tho ways and means committee, reported the bond bill as ' amended by the ways and moans com mittee to-day, and H was referred to tho committee of tho whole oil the state of tho Union. Mr. Daniel, Republican, of Now York, chairman of tho first committee on elections rose to a question of priv ilege and madu a unanimous report in favor of seating Hugh R. Itclknap iu place of Lawrence E. McOann from tho Third Illinois district. Mr. JIo Uaun had decided lie was not entitled to a seat and there was. therefore, no contest over tho matter. The report was adopted and Mr. Helknup was sworn in. Mr. Henderson of Iowa, from the committee on rules, presented the rule for the consideration of the bond bill. Mr. Crisp opposed the adoption of tho rule. Yesterday, said he. a gen eral tariff bill, the exact effect of which on particular industries, and on the revenues .no one knew, had been rushed through the House. To-day it had been proposed to rush throug'h a bond bill in the same summary man ner, but tho muriuuringsof discontent on tho Republican side had forced the uutocrat of tho House ami the so called leaders to yield a little more time. He admonished the other side that it was only by resistance that they could obtain their rights. Mr. Iluiloy, Democrat, of Texas, agreed in a general way to the propo sition that there could not be a great abuse of tho privilege of debute on public questions ami thut the prime factor was a vote; but, he said, while useless debate should be restricted, full and iair debate wtis essential. Yesterday, with four hours' debate, a bill which would burden the people with S10.000.000 of additloual tnxes, wns passed. To-day the performance was to be repeated, but this time pos terity was to bo saddled with an in terest bearing debt of no one knew how many millions. Tho country, he said, would no more tolerato precipi tate haste than it would undue delay. Mr. McMillan, Democrat, of Tennes see, asked why the Republican leaders proposed to cut their ussociates off without opportunity to offer amend ments. Were those in authority afraid of their associates? Would they not be trusted to do anything but voto? When tho twenty minutes allowed the Democratic side had been con fumed, Mr. Henderson, who was in charge of the rule, without making my reply to tho criticisms from the other side, demnuded a vote on the idoptlon of the rule, which was taken by yeas and nays.

Topeka is alive with school teachers who come from every quarter of Kansas to at tend the thirty-third annual conven tion of the Stato Teachers' association. It is estimated that there are between 1,200 and 1,500 instructors present. They represent every department of school work. Tho discussion of tho various topics along the line of educa tion show great thoroughness on tho part of those who participate, und tho indications are that this convention will prove the most interesting and instructive of the kind ever held within the Kansas border. ANOTHER BOND ISSUE. Arrangements I'erfected for T.aunrblnc Hi 00,000,000. Washington, Dec. 2S. Tho Presi dent and Secretary Carlisle have de termined upon nn immediate issue of bonds to be In the form of a popular loan. It will make no difference whether Rmslnn gold is available or not, as It will not be called for or ac cepted. Congress will not bo depend ed upon, for President Cleveland Is satisfied that no bond legislation will get through that body in timo to re lieve the present urgent situation. The issue will be announced iu a very few days. Tho amount will he 3100,000,000 for a period of thlrtyyears at 4 per cent, but the salu will be lled at such a premium as will make the In terest 3 rer cent Hat. The denomina tions will be small and the bonds will be put upon the market in the United States. No arrangement has been made with the llclmont-Morgan syndi cate, representing tho Rothschilds, other than thut they may, after nil of the bids of general and private sources in this country have been received, take the residue or surplus at tho same rate of interest. This tho syndicate has agreed to do. WANTS GdLDBONDS. Secretary Carlisle Sajs the Treasury' Con dition Is Serious. Washington, Dec. 2e Chairman Dingley of the ways and means com mittee has received n private letter from Secretary Carlisle which fur lishes some information concerning the condition of tho treasury. Miv Dingley will not mnko tho letter pub Mc, but says the Secretary offers to furnish tho Houso with nil data that nay be needed. The condition of thu reasury is represented as very seri ous, and Mr. Carlisle urges legislation !or u gold bond. Mr. Dingley has Informed the Sec etarv that a gold bond is out of thu question nnd could not bo considered. Secretary Carlisle did not say to Mr. Dingley that a 3 per cent bond cannot be lloated and did not discuss this feature of the case. This latter denial was made because reports to this effect concerning the Secretary's letter were in circulation. President Cleveland and his advisers, it is learned, are strongly opposed to tho notise bond bill, and this feeling caused Secretary Carlisle to write to Chairman Dingley. Aside from tho very important objection that tho bonds are to be redeemed in coin, in stead of gold, as recommended by the President, it is understood that tho requirement that the bonds bo sold b subscription meets with disapproval. OUTLAW BILL DOOLI N. He In Tired of Iiclnfj a Criminal and' Wants to Surrender on Conditions Pkihiy, Okln.. Dee. 28 Considerable excitement was created here yesterday when it was announced that Hill Doolin, formerly leader of the noted Dalton gang of outlaws, was in Perry and that his mission hero was to make peace with the olllccrs and give him self up, provided a sentence could be agreed on. It is said that Doolin was accompanied by Hill Carr, who is an escapee from Oklahoma City. Carr has a big reward hanging over him, and has skipped a $l.r,000 bond. He is charged with being an accessory to the murder of Chief of Police Jones, which occurred some months ago. Doolin, in an interview, says he is tired of an outlaw's life and wants to atone for all his misdeeds by working it out in a short term in tho penitentiary. Doolin was leader of thu Dalton gang for years, and Is said to be one of the most desperate men that ever lived in Oklahoma. Ten months ago ho was shot through the leg by a dep uty marshal, and tho wound caino near killing him. Ho has made many overtures of late to Oklahoma olllccrs for n compromise sentence for lnv crimes, and it is thought that it will be effected oon. TARIFF IN THE SENATE. Mr. Ilurrows Introduces a ISIIt FlarliiK i Duty ou the l'resent Freo I.lst. Washington, Dec. 'Ji. In the Sen ate, to-day, Mr. liurrows of Michigan presented a tariff bill.
