WASHINGTON Huniuu TUB OMAHA Dun , I 51U FoUHTEKKTIlSTIlRRr , WASHINGTON , D. C. , Doc. 5. I Mr. Mills offered n resolution In the hotisi to-tiny , which was adopted by uiinnlmou consent , making tlio direct tax bill tlio spo clnl order for to-morrow , Saturday , nnd nox Tuesday. Colonel Oatcs , of Alabama , who won nn tional fame last session by his determine' ' filibustering against the bill , stated to you correspondent this evening that while hi was still opposed to tlio passage of the bill ho would not renew his filibustering tne ties. Ho will content himself by offcrlni nn amendment to the bill , providing for the rcpaymeiitof the cotton tax. His purpose lie says , is to plncu the individual member : on record by their votes. Ho docs not bo Hove that the amendment will bo ndoptcd. Mr. Johnson , of North Carolina , 1ms a sen nation in store for the house. His plan i : actually nothing less than to offer tli Blair educational bill as nn amendment t the direct tax bill , The Blair bill has bcoi generally conceded to bo dead for i this scs slon. I to sudden appearance as nn amend ment to the direct tax bill , will placu a nuin tor of southern members in a awkward dilemma. Their purty , n n party , is opposed to the bill Init the constituents of ninny of them , as , fo instance the Virginians , have , openly am unmistakably , expressed their desire for th passage of the bill. The vote on this amend ment will prove very interesting. Mr. John Btono has been reasoned with not to offer tin dangerous amendment , but to the nrgumcn that the bill was not germane to the subjcc of the original bill , ho has replied that it wil bo germane If a majority of the house decidi in favor of It. A number of amendments of Ics Importance will also bo offered. A for the bill itself , it will vor ; probably pass the house. Colonel Oatcs tid mils that there Is n belief , however , tha President Cleveland will veto the measun when it reaches him. The amount which th bill will practically take out of the nationa treasury is very nearly $20,000,000. It wa ; for tills reason that Messrs. Carlisle ant Mills have hitherto been tho/ocs of the bill They xvcro unwilling last session to take thi : Bum from the surplus , which was to be , ai it did become afterwards , the principal fca turo of the democratic campaign. Now tha the campaign ia over and the surplus is 111 longer a matter of any political Interest l < them , Messrs. Carlisle nnd Mills are willing to bavo the bill passed. Tin : IXTUSESSION. . Some enterprising newspaper correspond ents clubbed togctner to-day and made i very thorough canvass of the republicans 01 the two houses as to the advisability of nr cxtru session of the Fillty-first congress fet tariff revision , or the division and admission to statehood of Dakota , and statehood foe other territories , or both purposes. The feeling is almost unanimous that an oxtrr session is Inevitable if a tariff bill is not adopted by both branches of this congress , and nioro than half or the republicans favor an extra session on the territorial question alone. Assuming that there is to bo.no tanfl | < j legislation , and that the territories are not tc I ; be admitted this session , an extra session li IfApril must bo looked for. There are o 14 number of reasons that point to this , ' nnd strong arguments are used tc convert senators and representatives whc nro opposed to the idea. The very first rca- eon presented Is of coui-so the neccossity foi on early organization of the house , because of the very small majority. There is nc longer any disputing that the republicans liavo a majority. Tlio only qunstlon is as to its slzo. Most republicans say it will bo BO small that it will bo dangerous , politically speaking , to delay organization till the second end weak in next December. Judge Pnyson , ono of the oldest and. strongest members from Illinois , expressed the general feeling when lie said that he expected the now con gress to moot in April , and that they could pass substantially , the senate tariff , bill which would bo disposed of by the senate this session ; of course it would have then to pass the new senate again ; that they would admit South Dakota , Montana and Washington Territory and pass nn enabling act for North Dakota , nud that they would perfect some general Dcnslon legislation before - fore the regular session In November. "I have no desire to conceal my motive for ad- milling the territories in the spring. Wo have a very small majority in each house , inoro especially in the senate is it desirable that this majority should bo increased in the Fifty-first congress. Tlicso three territories nro entitled to representation during tha now congress. I think wo should admit thorn during un extra spring session , so that thov may bo fully organized into states nnd send elx senators and as many representatives ns they are entitled to , to bo regularly enrolled as a imrt of the Fifty-first congress at tlio regular meeting in December. " cox's nui.ixo SKT ASIDE. Speaker Carlisle to-day sot aside the ruling of Speaker Pro Tom. Coy , rendered last ses sion , nnd decided that the bill to qulot tlio title of the settlers upon the DCS Molnes river lands is a priv ileged question , under the rule which makes privileged all bills from the committee on public lands which restore to the public do- in an any lands hcrotoforu granted to states for privuto purposes. After the ruling of the speaker Mr. Puyson , the republican leader of the committee , called up the Des Moincs Hrer bill , and it was dismissed up to the time of adjournment. Without reference to party , ovcry western member favors this measnro , and them is little doubt that It will ultimately secure the approval of n majority of the house. The principal opposition comes from members representing various districts in Central Now York. The members hava among their constituents u number of the stockholders of the Bes Moines River Improvement company , who nro afraid that the passage of the bill violate their alleged right * , and these people luwo been able to stir up a great deal of op position to the measure in the past. It will bo laid asldo until after the direct tax bill is disposed of. and then will bo pushed to Its passage. It is nearly fifteen years since the llrst attempt was imido to pass a bill similar to this. In ono congress It would pass the houBu nnd fall in the senate , and at another time It would pass the senate and fall in the houso. At last , in the Forty-ninth congress , H passed both bouses and wont to the presl- dent , but there it met a setback iti the bhapo of an executive vote , which nindo it neces sary for its friends to boglu work oil over again. Tlicso friends say that they have reason to believe that the views of the president - idont huvo undergone a change and that if it i ngalu sent to him ho will approve it. Icm'UlJLlCAN EXECUTIVB COMMITTEE. Tbo executive committee , of tbo national republican committee , met this evening and held n prolonged session. All of 4ho mom- bej-s worn "present except Mr.Fassutt.of Now York , and Mr. Da Young , of California , the former being engaged in a spirited contest for the spcakorshlp of the Now York legisla ture , and tha latter undoubtedly thinking that the trip would hardly pay , Colonel Dudley , the treasurer , laid his accounts be fore the committee , which wcro audited mid approved. It would bo IntorcbUng to know tbo aggregate rocolpu and expenditures , but oonu of thocomailtlco seem disposed to rnuka } uch a revelation , l asked throe or four of them nnd was tolt In reply that not half ns mud money was collected nnd expended a the newspapers reuortcd , and not n della had been corruptly used during the cam palgn , They agreed , also , Hint there wai still n good sum of money left In the treasury After sotiio other little matters of buslncs were disposed of , the committees had an In formal discussion as to the propriety am practicability of holding au extra session o congress , Mr. Now having expressed a wlsl to learn the views of the committeeTher wni almost nn unanimous opinion that In cas the present house adjourned without passlni n tariff bill , the Fifty-first congress shouli bo called together to revise the tariff to decide the contested election cases nnd to ndmit four new states It was also suggested as advisable , that the republican candidates who intend to eontos the seats of their opponents , who had re cclvcd certificates of election , should prcpar their cases , to present to congress Immc dlatoly nftcr the -Hit of March , prcsumln ) that an extra session would bo called. Thor being several of these gentlemen in the city they wore invited to appear before the com imttco and confer concerning their contests and , In several cases , ' the committee ugreei to advance funds to pay the necessary c.i pciisos. The committee exchanged cougratu intlons upon the capture of the house , us we ] as the presidency , nnd seemed to ngrco thn the republicans would now bo in power In definitely. rOLlTIU.ll , MlSlNFOllMATlOtf. Tlio following from Uiis morning's Nov York World contains u largo amount of po liticiil misinformation. "Alvin Snundcrs. o Nebraska , who is now studying the republican can firmament from the New York polltica observatory , presents the Beamingly curioui anomaly of a mlllloiialro duvoted to thi granger element. Ho is n tall man with i mass of white whiskers covering the lowc portion of his face. Ho was one of the curl ; settlers In Nebraska. With the Nevada bo nanza crowd ho made a fortune in sllvc mining , afterwards ho lost , as mnnj others have- done , much money in cattle rnis ing , but has now greatly Increased his wcaltl by investments in Nebraska coal lands and ii real estate in Omaha , which city is hi homo. The grangers sent him to the Unitce States senate. While there ho did nothing except demonstrate that ho was a peed jolly old follow , somewhat of the PhllctU ! Sawyer brand. Ho liked his life in Wash ington so well that ho wished to enjoy an other term in the senate , and ns a matter o precaution , made bargains which were ukii to the purchase of the legislature of hi ; state. Hut the railroad interests , which an very important and powerful in Nebraska determined that the growing power of th < grangers should bo chocked , and so Saunder awakened one day to n realization of the faei that ho had been outbid , and that the bar gain had been completed. In this way General oral Manderson was made his successor Ex-Senator Saundcrs' daughter is married t < Hussoll Harrison of Cleveland's , son suc cessor. " CUCMVDS fOll THE INAUGURATION. "Already I have refused over liftcen hundred drod bonu tide applications for rooms durliif next March , " ' said the prourletor of one o the leading 'hotels , referring , this morning to the approaching inauguration , "and I ex pect to refuse , " ho continued , "three timci that number. I have , this early , had twic ( as many applications for rooms as I had dur ing the entire season of four years ago. None of the landlords are engaging rooms at this time. " A crowd is almost constantly aroum the quarters of the inauguration committee and to-day the subscriptions came up to WO , 013. Surprise is no longer expressed wher some ono'writes to secure quarters for 8.00C or 4,000 men or a brigade or two of troons , Such things have become matters of course , On each desk to-day were placed tiny little portraits of Harrison and Morton on ivorj cards fastened together with striped nnc star spangled ribbons. Many persons fron : other cities came in to make inquiries about preparations for the inauguration , The inauguration of General Harrison will be the centenary inauguration , ns in 1789 , 100 years before. General Washington was inaugurated as first president of the United States. This Is a fact that escaped notice m all the arrangements so far made for the in- uuguration ceremonies. A citizen , speaking of the matter to-day , suggested that thoTuct of its being the centenary should bo stamped in some way upon tlio character of the cele bration. Ho thought that the designs for the ball tickets and invitations should commemorate - orate that fact , and that the decorations should also have that in view. The idea most general in the designs suggested for ball tickets nnd for decorations Is that of n log cabin. As the designs recalling the old Tippccanoo campaign will probably not find favor , the centenary idea comes prominently to the froiit. froiit.AI.DEUSON'S AI.DEUSON'S cEirnriOATE. The republicans uro not at all disturbed by the news that a certificate of election has been given to Aldcrson , the democratic can- daio for congress from the Third district of West Virginia , and assert thnb oven with the delegation from that state solidly demo cratic , there will bo a republican majority of ilvo in the next houso.

Tlio two shore piers nro somewhat shorter nnd smaller. The bridge is of the Pratt truss typo. It is designed to carry a moving load of 3,000 pounds to the lineal foot , or a continuous train of the heaviest locomotives now built.- It would require live time * such a strain to break down the bridge. The height of the span fifty-four feet above an average stage of llio water permits steamboats to pass under it. The top of the span is fifty-seven and ono-half feet abpvo the top of. the piers.

" Pressed upon this point , the councilman said that the uiuyor had slated to him that ho would devote all his energies to downing Bcehcl in tlio Fourtli ward.
