will bo presented at an early date.
Gon. Sheridan has succeeded , by Ids stout
defense of lien. Ciook , In seeming his leten-
tion for the picsent in command of the de

who had ( 'rook made a brigadier-general
years ago through Ids Influence ) with ( Jon.
Urant , and ho stands by him In spite of all
opposition or ciiticUm , but If the. Indian out
rages continue In Ailronn for another month
It is said that Crook w 111 hav o to go In epltu
of the lieutenant-general , and Gen , Miles
will piobably boglven a clmneo to see what
ho can accomplish there , Shetldan dislikes
Miles as much as ho likes Ciook , and natu

The result was that within thice or four davs
Senatot Kvails was flooded with letleis and
( ilcaMins piotesthu against his bpeaking
for blher coinage. Jitters came by llio

Ing. We h.uo to go to the pension olllic , call
thu cases up , and in many instances lookom

the congiCbbinan has not dona fahly

been allowed. Too much sticss Is put upon the

glad when they get a pension lor a con

they encounter falluie. "
"It is my Impression , " tald a Pacific slope
senator to-day , "that there will be a very
liberal ri > er and hurboi bill passed by this
oongrcas. The work begun In many localities
four years ago was suspended eighteen or
twenty months since on account of there
being no appropriation bill passed by the last
congress , and It will not only be necessary to
appropriate enough to bring up the work to
where it shoutU have been , but a good deal
has been lost by a suspension of the impiov-
ments ; that is , the work begun once and
allowed to remain idle a couple of years
retrogrades so rapidly that in mnni Instances
half of the work and money expended Is
thrown away. "

As usual , a great deal of dissatisfaction Is
shown In the organisation ottho house com
mittees. The time that tins Intervened since
they were announced has only served to In
flame the troubled fecllnps of disappointed

who Imagine they should have prominent
positions and do not cet them ate mad. Un
der Speaker Kclfcr , In the roity-scvenlh con-
KICIS , a lot of members in both parlies
"pouted" for w ceks and w ceks after the com

however , the committees were invariably as
stromr as could have been undo. Speaker

Tito week has been without altciatlon In

Hopefulness Is still llio inle , and In most de
partments of business U Is dllllciilt In find
anv oilier sentiment prevailing. Al tlipiime
time developments me not altogether In line
with an Immediate ) bnotu In our Ineliistilcs.
One of the stock niginupiits upon vvhleh pre
dictions of n greatly Impiovcd tiadc have
been based was lnciei ed activity In the lion
business and ccitaln expectations that lion
pi lees would havu un immediate advance.
Tills piedleled punpcilly in the lion and
bteel Industiy was lo communicate Its effects
to the coil tiade , nnd so on through tlie entire
line of allied and liUci-dependenl Industries.
A few weeks ago appcai.inccsdhl favor an
eatly advance In thu pilcoof pig lion , and
the iiuii masters wciu nlmusl unanimous In
Iheh expectation" . Indeed , so sum weio the
indications consldeird thai speculators wore
known to be1 piep.uing for huge deals on the
bull side of the maikct. The fuels , however ,
aie not coming out In the way they weic ex
pected. The first blow w as the acceptance by
one of the laigcsl anthiacltu Iron con-
ceins of laigu oideis at thu old price ,
SIS , Instead ot making their figures 51P ,
which ! ! they weio eonlidcnlly expected to
do. Other concerns liavu followed suit , and
instead of the expected advance of SI per
Ion , the otlio foi Xo. 1 anthiacltu icinnlni
stallonaiy. The elfcct of lids him bceii
maikcd. lion spccuhilois have abandoned
all hope of the good things Ihuy saw before
Ihpin. The dpal In pig lion Is off foi Iho
lime being.
Thu week has not passed without some rc-
cmtcnco of tlio dangeious symptoms In llio
state ol exchange. This lime theio docs not
seem to beany manipulations ol the maikct ,
but the scat city ot commercial bills in llio
eaily p.ut ot the wi'ek led to thu mh.inelng
ol i.itcs to tliu minimum gold shipping point
by some of Ihu loading diawem. At llio
same time llio movement was not gcneial ,
omc bankcis whose diafls aiu cousldcicd
piiiue keeping n little below Ihu exliemo
anle. Thisaccotdlngly negatived the Iminc-
dhle shipment uf gold , and Iho Incicaso of
gialn and cotton shipments noted dining the
weekliought laics down below tlie gold
shipping point. It must not bo thought ,
however , that llio diuigci ot gold shipments
hasaltogcthei disjpiicaiud. It must bo re-
membcud that 1'ngllsh cotton and gialn
consiinipis me nlie.uly overstocked. lt
should not hi1 said theio is loom lei appie-

The stock maikut has been disappointing.
Them was no change. In the intoiu&t later ,
and loans wciu quoted as luw as lui sumo

cieatcd an Indisposition to cntei into specu
lation to any extent. It would scorn that the
effect of Jay Gould's complete ascendancy In
the sheet Is becoming distinct , nnd cicates a
feeling of unusual caution. .Manipulation of
