WASHINGTON , U. O. , Dec. B , I
U was statoil to-day , upon tlio highest
democratic authlrlty In tlio lion so , tlmt tlio
majority of the members of the commltco on
ways and moans wcro very seriously consid
ering the question of refusing to go Into con-
fcrctico on the senate tariff bill when It
ahull ho transmitted to the house. Ho said
that the senate hill could In no way bo con-
( tillered as an amendment to the house bill ;
tlmt the proposed changes In the bill to bo returned -
turned by thu senate , were so radical and con
trary to the spirit of the house bill , that the
house , In Justice to itself , would bo compelled
lo discuss It very seriously in committee. It
is believed that the proposition to refer tlio
bill to the committee on ways and means ,
instead of agreeing to a conference , will bo
vigorously opposed by the republicans , aided
bVBomeof the protection democrats , mid
thatJthocomnilUro hopes to whip the party
into lino. The real causa of this almost un
precedented course of action , Is believed to
bo a fear that enough democrats will vote
with the republicans for the bill to pass it. If
it is allowed to coma to a vote onca in com
mittee the bill will bo pigeon-holed.

Interviews with prominent republicans on
the Thurston candidacy are not , favorable to
the chances of the Union Pacillc general at
torney , oven if Clnrkson's nomination was
not considered as good as settled , The ex
pression of opinion is very general that
Thureton's ' position as a corporation attorney ,
and his previous record as a promoter of
railroad legislation at homo , as developed in
the I'anllle railroad commission reportwould
innko the consideration of his candidacy for
secretary of the interior Impossible. General
Clarkson is to-night attending a banquet in
Haltimorc to General Kings , who led the
Maryland republicans to various victories
last month.
Tlio Outtiwiiito bill for the refunding of
the Pacillc railroad debts , is getting some
Iiretty hard blows now-a-duys , and there is
very little If any probability that it can get
through this congress. Senator Plumb and
Mr. Outhwnito say it has no chance of suc
cess. A circular was distributed to-day
charging that the bill docs not pay the
proper amount to the government by 10,000-
000 ; that thi ) Union Pacific , since the ml ;
journmont of the last session of congress , has
issued $4.'IOUUOO bonds , In violation of the
law of 18TJI , and is conspiring to form n trust
to violate the inter-stato commerce act. It
alleges various suspicious and illegal facts ,
nnd intimates that the intention is to rob the
government. Tlio fight is becoming so strong
npalnst the measure that its friends do not
believe it can pass.
"It scorns to mo that the two or three re
publicans in the house who are , without any
authority , offering objections to all of
Springer's propositions to consider his omni
bus territorial statehood bill , arc making a
very serious error , " said Delegate Gifford
this afternoon. "If the bill could only begotten
gotten up , " ho continued , "I am quite sure
that Dakota would bo divided and at least
the southern half admitted to statehood ,
while Montana and Washington territories
would become stiitcs. This is nearly all the
republicans ask for. The democratic side of
the house Is ready to go to pieces on this sub
ject , and none of its lenders can control It.
Besides , it is better that wo should get simply
ti division of Dakota or a division and admis
sion of half of it to statehood at this session
than nothing.Vu liavo a republican senate

now states oven at this session , and I um
confident that them will bo an extra session
of the Fifty-first congress , for there is very
little , if any , probability of a tariff bill pass

session means ut least four now states all

to get it through without any fuss or debate.
TUero is no opposition to the measure on the

duced by Mr , Paddock , has been reported
favorably from tlio committee on publlo
buildings and grounds , mid has received the
hearty endorsement of the president in his
Into message. It Is one of thu most popular
measures now before congress , and ought to
pass before the 1st of March , becaimo nearly
every town of any si/.o in the country is di
rectly interested , and every bricklayer anil
carpenter sees in it aomo individual bunulit
for himself. Mr. Vest has the bill In chargo.
having reported it from the committee , ami I
asKed him to-day when ho was going to call
it up. "Tho very llrst chance I got , " ho ro-
plied. "I do not know that thorn is any op
position to It , although some of thu folks may
want to innko changes in the details of thu
measure. Thu president has given it his en
dorsement , and I do not set ! why it should not
puss both houses tnis session and become u

There is a project on foot to revive the
rank of lieutenant general for Major General
Scliollold , This would promote Terry to bo
uuijor general. Schollcld has u great deal of
deinocrutio influence , being an ardent demo
crat , and Terry is influential among republi
cans. Friends of thu two warriors believe
that between thorn both can come up in rank.
Republicans who expect to cut , a prominent
figure in the programme to bo carried out in
Washington on the 4th of March , and who
consequently are anxious for tlrst-class hotel
accommodations , are experiencing a great
deal of tllftlciilty nnd much annoyance In en
gaging rooms. Although it is generally un
derstood that the nrst-clasa hotels are pledg
ing quarters at some tlguro or anotlierit is
not true. , There have been a few rooms en
gaged nt the well-known hostulrlcs , but thu
landlords posit rjly refuse to go Into the bus-
incsstn any considerable extent. They explain -
plain their refusal to hire their rooms
for the inauguration season by saying that it
would discommode their regular patrons and
would cut them- out of all patronage for
many days In advance. They expect tran
sients to come in during January and the
curly part of February for the purpose of se
curing rooms , and occupy them up to and
over Inauguration day ,
Kooms can uo scoured at many of the
hoarding and lodging houses , and. many of
the fashionable llats can bo engaged oven ut
this early day , The result of the refusal of
the landlords nt the best hotels to engage
rooms this early will bo on awful rush for
a week before the Inauguration , and many
who would go' Into the very best quarters
will huvo to tnko inferior ones.
TUB SOUTHiUN : roi.icr.
Very little is being said in Washington by
the higher class of southern statesmen about
'tho southern policy" of President-elect Hur-
who are in congress and the departments
hcco , bcliovo that President-elect Harrison
intends to simply np | > olnt. the very best ro.
t.ubllcans residing in the south to the federal
positions there i that ho will advocate the
adoption of such laws as will guarantee
honest elections everywhere and uplift the
Industrial interests of nil sections of
the country , nnd that there his "south
ern policy" will end. They believe that
General Harrison docs not now , and will not ,
advocate any sperlUe laws for the south , and
that ho will not direct his attention to the
adoption or enforcement of laws intended
only to affect sections.
So far as thn confederates are concerned
nnd these are the men who are talking so
much about the "southern policy" they are
more concerned about their loss of power
than anything else. They tear that the in
coming of President Harrison and the re-
apportionincnton thu census of IsWI means n
relegation to the for at least a quarter of
a century , the demo-confcdernto partywhlch
goes out of power on March 4 next.
President White , of the Fourth National
banit , of Cincinnati , said to your correspond
ent the other day that the financial men
whom ho had met and talked to since the
election were expecting a more bountifu
supply of money within a short time after
President Harrison is inaugurated than they
have had for many years. Ho siitd that the
bankers were now reducing as rapidly as
possible their capital stock , taking up to the
minimum the bonds they have deposited will
the treasurer of the United States to secure
circulation , nnd that more bonds were belnf ,
offered for salu now than ho had over known
All tills , ho said , naturally tends towards n
greater volume of money , ns the rcdemptioi
of these bonds placed tlio cash in thu hands
of these who wanted to use it.
Evciat the treasury department the pros
cnt democratic ofllciais will frankly sny that
the incoming of President Harrison means
cheaper money to borrowers. They expect
to see the redemption of bonds ns fust as the
surplus accumulates , and the output
of the latter just ns soon as the
new administration gets settled Into
its berth. On the strength of thu outlook
bankers and brokers from the west are ar
riving in Washington almost dully for the
purpose of making inquiry , and they are pro
feeding eastward with n view to arranging
for the sale of state , county , municipal am
real estate bonds , nnd to secure investments
in western real estate by eastern capitalists.
Thcrs are a number of gentlemen in tlio cit.\
now from the west on their way east to Induce -
duce capitalists to invest in man ifaeturing
enterprises. PEHIIY S. HUATU.

napolis , Md. , says : Thu trial of the cast-steel
six-inch gun provided by the Pittsburg Steel
Casting company , took place at the proving
grounds hero yesterday afternoon , and re
sulted in the total destruction of the gun nt
the second shot. This trial has been looked
for with great interest by naval and army
ordnance experts. If the gun had proved to
bo the equal of the built-up cun there would
have been a saving of time nnd
cxpensu so great as to revo
lutionize gun manufacture. The gun
on trial was about sixteen feet long and
its weight was llvo tons ; weight of tlio pro
jectile , about ono hundred pounds ;
powder , charge of forty-eight pounds.
It was mounted on n solid oak
platform. As a precautionary meas
ure the officers and others engaged in

It was lucky they did. Tlio first shot was
madu with only thirty-nine pounds of pow

After considerable discussion as to what to

Mr. Plumb gave notice that ho would at nil

The senate at 1 ; OS resumed consideration
of the tariff bill , beginning with the schedule
which covurs earthenware nnd glassware.
Mr. Plumb called attention to the para
graph as to silvered glass ( No. 11.1) ) , and said
that such glass was largely used by furni
ture manufacturers and was almost entirely
of foreign make , because the silvering of
such glass hi the United Status was not
durable. The duty added $ J or ? 3 to the cost
of the article , and if the article was not
madoi n this country he did not see why the
duty should not bo reduced.
Mr , Allison did not know why such glass
could not DO properly silvered in the United
States , and suggested that it might be on ac
count of the duty being ioi low it being
only equal to 10 per cent ad valorem.
The senate then proceeded to a considera
tion of schedule C , relating to metals. Mr.
Plumb called attention to the paragraph as
to beams , girders nnd Joists , and sjioko of
the iron and steel combinations m this
country , and instanced the cases of the gov
ernment building at Wichita and the state
house of Texas , where a large saving had
been effected by contracting for such work
abroad. Ho moved to amend by reducing
the rate from 1.1 cents per pound to .8 cents.
Mr. Harris moved to place the rate at .0
Mr. Allison opposed Mr. Harris' amend
ment , saying it weijt to the root of the whole
iron and steel .schedule. He had no doubt
that if the present r.ito was maintained thu
competition would bo sufficient in n short
time to break down prices.
.Messrs. Aid rich , Hcagan , Harris , Hoar ,
Butler , Plumb and i Payne continued tlio dis
cussion , but no % 'oto was taken on the pend
ing amendments , and the bill was laid aside ,
the progress for the day being about eight
Adjourned until Monday.
WASHINGTON , Dec. 0 The speaker stated
to the house that ho had received a communi
cation from Hon. Perry Hclmont informing
him that ho had sent to the governor of Now
York his resignation as a member of con
gress from the First congressional district
of Now York. The speaker directed the
dork to drop Mr. Belmont's name from the
roll of the house.
The usual resolution for distributing
the president's messages to appropriate com
mittees was reported from the committee on
ways and means and adopted.
The order relative to the consideration of
the direct tux bill was so modified as to make
the measure a special order for to-day , Tucs
d y and Wednesday next , it being the desire
of many members that adjournment betaken
over Saturday.
The house then wont into committee of the
Whole , Mr. Springer , of Illinois , in the chair ,
on the direct tax bill.
Mr. Caswell explained that the simple
purpose in the bill was to refund to the states
and individuals who paid taxes that pdr-
tion of the direct tax which was collected.
After careful computation ho was able testate
state that the bill carried $15,3arK13. ( This
did not include thu 15 per cent commission
allowed the states or persons who paid tax.
Mr. Oatcs , of Alabama , said that the first
round of his opposition to the measure was
that there was no authority conferred upon
congress by the constitution to pass
the bill , or make the appropriation
provided for. Ho contended , not for a strict
construction of the constitution , but for the
observance of it. When limitation was dis
regarded , and the unbridled bill of congress
was substituted for it , the people no longer
had any guarantee for the rights to a state
and people. The money collected under the
act of 1M11 had been illegally collected nnd
expended for the legal purpose of the com
mon defense , and the bill was therefore a
donation unjustified by the constitution. His
second objection was that it was unjust In its
provisions. The money collected from the
people could never bo returned to those
who paid it ; and at this late day it was im
possible to restore it to these from whom it
was taken. It was urged as a reason for re
imbursing that some of the states had never
paid the tax ; it was the intention to pass this
bill In qrder to equalize taxation. Then ho in
sisted that congress should go further and re
fund the cotton tax and correct other abuses
more glaring than had ever arisen under the
act of IStil.
Ho sent to the clerk's desk nnd had road n
series of amendments , which ho proposed to
offer at thu proper time. The first refunds
the cotton tax , the .second permits
persons who paid tax to bring suit to recover
the amount paid , the third revives thu right
of action in the court of claims under the
provisions of the captured and abandoned
property net , and the fourth directs the sec
retary of the treasurer , in making payment
nnd settlement of the direct tax , to take Into
account nnd set oft any amount duo by any
state to thu United States under tlio act of
JutioiU ) , It30 , to regulate deposits of nubile
After some further debate Mr , Cnloo , of
Tennessee , Hout to the desk and had read for
Information the proposed amendment re
funding the cotton tax , and providing that
such amount as can bo paid to persons who
fluid thu tux shall bo turned over to the school
fund of the Hiatus interested.
Pending further debute the committee rose
and the house adjourued.

Thomas H. Harry , outlining the alms nnd
purposes of the now organization which lie
proposes to form nnd which is to bo known
as the "Urothcrhood of United Labor. " In
thu nddrcss Harry says ho Is not advocating
the formation of this new order for the pur

cratify his personal ambition , but to "estab
lish honesty In and plnco thu labor move
ment on n decentralized basis , which will
make it forever almost Impossible for cliques
and rings to bo formed to destroy In months
the lubor of years. "
The organization , it is said , will bo estab
lished on a decentralized basis. It will Icavo
to trades or central branches complete juris
diction and control over their own affairs. If
disputes or controversies arise between mem
bers and their employers they will bo settled
by tlioso most conversant with the trouble ,
and not by those who know nothing nbout
the cause of complaint. The order will
maintain relations with all legitimate organl-
yations. "It .will , " says the address , "draw
thu line closely on scabs and scnbism. It
will urge the study of co-operation and the
means of bringing it into practice , and will
Insist upon imunhcrs giving fair manufac
turers the preference when purchasing thu
necessaries of life. "

policy tb bring into practice and have enacted
