time ot It when ho was hero last week. Presi
dent Cleveland had put off so many things
until the last moment that ho nearly ran his
"best man" down. One of the first things
Blfiscll had to do was to go around and In
spect suburban retreats whcto the coming
honeymoon could bo spent. Tlio picsldent

was decided that a summer residence must bo

WASIUNOTON , May 19. [ bpcclal Tele
gram ] A California- genius named Dr.
Phelps , lias presented to congicss nnd thu
officials of the tieastny department dcslcns
for tjur paper cmrency which aio unlqucaiid
which he is trying to have adopted. The
purpose of the new designs Is to pievent
"laislng" and to enable Ignorant people who
cannot icad to icadlly distinguish one bill
from another and know its denomination.
It Is proposed to make the one , two and live-
dollar bills of one color ; the ten , twenty and
fitly of another color , and the one , two and
live hundred-dollar bills of still another color.
Then the first seiles each have a uniform
style of lettcilng , nnd have bars on which
no the figures and Ictteis telling the denom
ination In bitch a way that it Is Tmcossiblo to
laiso the face value , and any child or illller-
nto poison could icadily learn their value.
It has been along ttino since thcio was a
change made in tlio general design of the
paper or silver cmreneyot the goveinment ,
and tlicpiescnt style has pioum so satis
factory , and people ha\o grown soused to
the conventional green and black that any
new pioiKHltion will bo consldcicd cau
tiously. The bankers and people who handle
n great deal of paper omrency and who have
toconteud with counterfeiters and the er-
tors ol Ignorance have universally endoised
the new designs pioposed , but it will icqniie
nn act of congicss to atithoiiru a substitution ,
ind as congicss will baldly legislate on fi
nance now theio Is no piospect of a change.
After all thowoikln committal's and the
Hurry of the lobbyists over land foifcltuies ,
it comes down to another point of lailmo
when an effort Isnmde to foilelt. For many
years concu-ss has woikcd up bills and elab
orate favoinbleiepoits for foilclting the mil
lions of iincai ned lands planted laihoads by
the government to aid in their construction ,
but theio has been nothing tuither done.
Some influence has repeatedly woiked to defeat -
feat the final consideration of thubills. Thcio
are now on the house calendar bills tavoi-
ably rcnoited , which propose to foiteit seven
ty or eiclity millions of acres of lands , tint
. it Is said by those who ought to know that
there Is not the least show of their passage.
These rcuorts represent the woik ot fifteen
good lawycis for months , and the work has
been repeated every two yeais dining the
past decade. It seems that thoiallioads ha\o
the lands and will keep them , whether eained

Ho was proceeding to make a summary of
ho vote when ho was Intel runted by Mr ,
Blotint with the point that It was not hi
older to refer to thu action of the sonalo.
Mr. Phclps suggested that the gentleman
ihotild be proud that eight democratic sena-
ors had the com ago to vote for the amend-
in-lit. Ho had rend from public prints that
eight , democratic senators had voted to gi\o
now steamships to American commerce and
new ports to Ai.icilcan manufacturers.
Thu senate having performed Its duty , the
house piescnled to ittlicoppoituulty to pass
iiioasuios full of advantages to tlio cotmtiy.
What the country needed was new steam
ships and foreign maikcts that this measure
would glvo them. Thu country wanted its
sea coasts defended. This measuio would
do It by giving thu country a merchant
marine , which was a militia of the seas.
This measure was advantageous ami ought
to bo passed , and It would bo passed unless
the membeis weio filuhteiicd because some
gentlemen had called It subsidy. Subsidy
was a gift or excessive payment.
Mr. Hlscock maintained thattno amend
ment was not subsidy when the gen tie-
man Insinuated that the lobby was
lull of men pushing the senate
amendment. He might as well leport that
as stioiiK Inllueiiccs were at work emanating
fiom thu other side of the ocean to stilkc
down Ameiiniti steamship lines , mcasmcd
by prices which were paid for cariylng our
domestic malison the railioads , steamships
and star ionics , the United States would bo
paying under this senate amendment theory
\ory lowest of compensation. Measured by
the lates paid by eveiy European power , ft
would bo paying a very small compensation

Mr. Spilngerfavoicd the policy of compel

Sidney Dillon and Unsscll Sage.
Mr. llolman eainestly opposed the policy
of subsidies and contended that that policy
would not have the clfcct of building Amcil-

The opening of the Impeachment lilnl to
day was quiet , tame mid uninteresting ,
Thpro was nothing of a dramatic character
attending it , and comparatl\cly low vlsltois.
As far as the preliminary proceedings were
concerned theio was no Indication of any
special advantage for cither side. To-mor-
low will bo more pioncrly the opening day ,
as the opening argument on the part of
the state will probably bo begun then
by Colonel J. II. Keatlcyof thoboaid of man

feel they have to except to the jurisdiction of

right In their answer , BO that this case might
not bo taken as nn adverse precedent when

other Impeachment trials , but they think they
uro wllllinr to go to trial with the case ns ft
Is. Thi'v say that their principal line of do-
fcnso will bo to show that other state otllccis
have allowed the same irrcgulailtles ns
"For this purpose , " said one. of the counsel ,
"wo propose to put the olllccrs on
trial. " The general sentiment of tlm
senators seems to be , however , that they will
consent to no such proceeding. They say
they will have to waste enough tlmo in try
ing Brown without Investigating other offi
cials \sho have not been accused. It seems
to bo the general opinion that the trial wilt
last at least six weeks , as there are thirty
counts to tht ) Indictment and ton distinct

LINCOLN , Neb. , J Iay 19. [ Special Tele
gram. | The much-talked-about twenty-live
mile loot race between Ilourllian , or Omaha ,
and Tufllcld , of Lincoln , for a stake of § 200 ,
came off at the Diivlhg park to-day In the
presence of a small audience. Tullleld was
in line condition , having been in training
for three weeks , while Houlihan was soft
from want of work , ana it was a foigone con
clusion before the word was given that-thc
race , bailing accident , would bo won by the
foimcr. The match , as Is well-known , gicw
out of the quarrel between the Thuis-
ton and Fltzgciald lioso teams ,
the men being picked as the
best long distance runners in the respective
companies and capable of doing uattlo for
locality supiemacy. Councilman Leader , the
backer of Ilourllian , explained belore the
Ftart that ho had been caught on the bet In
making a bluff , and that lie did think his
man could give Tuflield two miles and beat
him , as the agicement called for. It a match
on even teims was deslicd , however , Leeder
.said ho would match Houlihan against Tut-
hcldforSSO. After a little talk the men got
the word and went oil at a lively gait , Ilou
rllian leadinc. His tactics were to
run Tnlllclcl down In the first
ten miles , and ho made the
pace a hot one. The Hist live miles were run
in 20 minutes and 21 seconds , Houlihan be
ing a halt mile In the lead. At the ten milo
maik which he passed in fi8 minutes and 45
seconds , Ilourllian had Increased his lead tea
a full mile. Fiom want ot training the iapd !
gait told on him more seveiely than it did
on Tullleld , and the latter from that J hue on
began to gain. When seventeen miles were
scored Houlihan sei'lng that ho had
no chance to make up the two
miles handicap In tlio icmaliiing
eight gave up the stmgcle , and the stakes
wcro awarded to Tufllcld. Stiango to say
the lace was HIM on the srjuaio , and , so tar as
it went , ga\o satisfaction to all who saw it.
Houlihan established the fact that ho has
most speed tor any distance tij ) to ten miles ,
but Tullleld's lasting poweis woio too much
for him. J. A. Austin , Uran Knslgn and
John Iloyo olllulated as Judges. Fiank
Howaid was refeice. and Clmiles
Miller was stakeholder. The ofll-
cial time for the seventeen miles was
2 hours and 47 minutes. There was no bet
ting to speak of. '
