silver bill still Impends over the house as n
cloud , the pretence of which makes poislblo
ntitorm that , muy disturb the prognoMlc.i-
tlonsbf thoio who endeavor to form nn accu
rate chart of the course of legislative work.
Owing to the absence nf Mr. Cutehlnijs of
Mississippi nnd the doslro that there shall bo
a full representation of members , when the
rule making the Bland frco coinage bill and
pending amendments n spacl&l order Is taken
up , the rules comtntttco will not report mid
call up the muoh-tulaod-of special order until
Tuesday. The silver light will then bo renewed -
nowod nna fought to u finish ono way or the
Tomorrow will probably bo devoted to
measures rolntinir to the District of Colum
bia. The remainder of the week not dovotcd
to consideration of the silver question , will
bo consumed either In ilobato on tbo tariff
questions or In consideration of ono or more
of the regular appropriation bills , no decision
having yet been arrived at as to whether or
not the tariff discussion shall bo further in
terrupted. .
There nro three appropriation bills ,
namely , the navtl , the consular nnd diplo-
niuttc"nnd the sundry civil , ready for action
bv the house. Naturally the naval bill would
take precedence of the others In considera
tion , ns It was llrst reported. 1'bo river and
harbor bill has bcon agreed upon by the com
mittee and will not bo reported to the house
until tbo close bf the vvcck.
What They Will Oo In the Seimto ,
Interest In tbo proceedings of the sonnto
this week will turn upon the disposition of
the Bering sea arbitration treaty , which Is
the unfinished business on the executive
calendar , and iti \ expected that the sonnlo
will exclude the public from the chamber for
many hours.
In the course of the legislative business ,
the Indian appropriation bill will bo further
considered , uud there is moro to bo said upon
the subject of employing array onicers in tne
capacity of Indian agents.
The 'Wost Virginia direct tax bill , after
several postponements on account of the ill
ness of Senator Merrill , has been finally as
signed for debate on Tuesday , on which day
Senator Stanford will also , according to notice -
tico , add i ess the senate on his bill to de
termine the value of a tender dollar.
It Is expected that the District of Columbia
appropriation bill will bo taken up after
wards , and as this is a me as uro in which the
senators feel much interest , owing in part to
the fact that many of thorn own homes In
this city , the debate upon the provisions of
the bill is likely to occupy the senate for
Botno time.
Iteport of the IIouso Committee ou Foreign
WA3HISOTON , D. C. , March 27. Mr.
Blount , chairman of the house committee on
foreign affairs , hus prepared for the house
on extensive report to accompany the regu
lar annual consular and diplomatic appro
priation bill framed by the committee. The
report says that a oareful examination has
been made Into the subject of our foreign
missions , and the importance of our diplo
matic relations with the several countries.
The facilities for the transmission nnd Inter
change of thought dispenses with much of
the neoa nf foreign representation. It enables -
ablos the homo government to communicate
rapidly nnd freely on all questions of differ
ence with foreign governments and to glvo
directions In tbo most minute detail. So com
pletely does this practice obtain that wo
shall scarcely find farno Springing for the ac
tion of our representatives nt foreign courts
In the future as in the earlier
davs of the republic. In addition to
this , tbo country has grown to such
magnitude as to enjoy that regard from other
nations wnlch guarantees her against foreign
insolence , outrage and causeless war. Very
much might bo Kafoly done in reducing the
number of our ministers by the abolition or
the union of several countries under ono
mission. Not to on con rage hope for an ac
ceptance of these views by the scnato or the
president It has bcon deemed best , except in
n few instances , to postpone needed reforms
at this point. Denmark , Sweden and Nor
way , however , hove been placed under one
mission , as have Colombia and Ecuador , and
likewise Peru and llollvla.
By a mistake of. the printer It was an
nounced that Guatemala and Venezuela hud
also been joined under ono minister. Sepa
rata missions are to bo maintained to these
two countries , and the salary is fixed at
15,000 each. The reports say that the com-
tnlttno gave careful attention to tbo con
sular service and revised it according to tbo
business and Importance of the United States
to each place.
United H til ten Senator * llclnj ; Watched to
Discover Olllcml I.eukx.
WAaiiiNGTON , D. C. , March 27. [ Special
Telegram to Tun Beu. ] Some very sensa
tional features have cropped out of the sen
ate's executive sessions on Thursday and
Friday. Vigorous efforts were made by a
few to strike at certain senators who were
supposed to bavo given "pointers" to their
newspaper frlonds respecting executive pro
ceedings , and in doing so they cast very seri
ous reflections upon mnocont employes , Ono
or two senators wont so far as to name James
B. Youngtbo oxccutivc clerk , ns being
guilty of regularly giving out information
for publication.
tilr. Young la ono of the proprietors of the
Philadelphia Star , a brother or John Hupscll
Young , well known diplomat and biographer
of ( jencral Grant , and stands high In his
profession , Ho has been in charge of the
executive proceedings of the senate for IIf-
tocn or twenty years , and although ho Is a
frequenter of newspaper row and has many
intimate frlonds among the correspondents
who write most of the executive work of tbo
scnuto , it U n well known fact that ho has
never bean suspected by those who do tbo
writing of giving oven aa Intimation of what
Is done behind the closed doors. But there
Is a demand upon the part of the senatorial
Intlmidutors that sotnonno shall bo made a
scapegoat , sacrificed to fct an example to the
senators who glvo out the secrets , and thus
frighten the real guilty parties.
Air. Voune Slay Ketlcn.
The attack upon Mr , Young was so bitter
nnd cruel on Friday that it. ID probublo ho
will voluntarily resign , although expulsion
was threatened. Ho caunol wfall remain in
his position and cither fuel comfortable or
maintain his self respect. Should he resign
his example may DO followed by his assis
tant , Coloucl Morrow ot Missouri , and nossi-
cly tbo von rablc Captain Bassott , assistant
tloor-kccpcr , who tin * been excluded from
executive Bcssions for the iirst time in u
third of acontuiy. In connection with the
reign of terror which Is prevailing about the
ecnata for tbo purpose of closing lips agaim > t
executive leaks , a very sensational report Is
in circulation tonight.
It in to the effect that detectives bavo been
employed during the past week to shadow
senators suspected of "leaking , " ana that
they liava'followed the suspects over the city
to note whether they bavo conversed with
newspaper representatives , and whether
newspaper men visit them at their rooms.
Thus it Is that all who speak to representa
tive * of tholr local press ate placed under a
bau ol suspicion. It is not stated whether
thcte detectives are employed by the secre
tary or sorgoant-at-nrms of the senate , or individual -
dividual senators who are determined to lo-
c.ito the responsibility of the Ionic. It was
reported last night that some of the detec
tives employed by the Treasury department
were detailed to do this work , but the law
prohibits the employment of department
agents or detectives for private purposes , ,
It May PriMoIco Trouble.
If It should prove true thht dotoctwos have
been placed upon the trail of nnv senator It
Is almost sure to lead to serious trouble In
the senate , as it Is not probable that nny
senator would suffer such an aspersion upon
his privuto Integrity. It 1 learned from the
usual channels through which executive
cocrois Ionic out that om ? very vlcorous
speeches wcro made onlhundav end Friday
against the present system of secret f csslons
by Sanders of Montana , Pottlgrcw of bouth
IJakot.t nnd other senators. A very strong
feeling has oxlitcd for several years against
the present procccdure ? , nnd it Is proposed
that all matters which have heretofore been
discussed in sscrot session shall bo consid
ered in open session unless Iho committee reporting
porting Ihom requests their llnnl considera
tion to bn In secret.
Senator Sanders denounced the proposition
that executive sessions leaked out through
employes In very vigorous languago. Ho
said It wai simply slily , cruelly absurd , as
every frank nnd fair senator would acknowl
edge that the secrets came out through em
ploye * . ' 1 hare was not a man .in the senate ,
ho suld , who would refuse to accommodate a
personal frlond in newspaper row If it was to
ills own advantage lo do so. It was ridicu
lous , ho said , a sorry spcctaclo Indeed , to
send the sergcant-at-nrms about the closed
gallery to Hud nu audlphono or other Instru
ment sot to catch executive proceedings.
Should Ho HoncBt ultli Itself.
rue scnato. ho ; ald , should no honest with
itself and acknowledge that Its own member
ship did the leaking. Ho made the heads
of the senators conducting the
farce hang with shame. Senator
Pottlgrew said that Just so long ns the
senate closed Its door to the world , fired out
its trusted and sworn cmplojes nnd shut the
mouths of the senators for the purpose of
considering the nomination ot two or three
llttlo Pennsylvania postmasters , aIt did the
other day , and was in the habit of doing , It
could not expect any stress to bo put upon
the real secrets of the senate. The action in
the .insignificant things degraded the im
portant thing * . It wus cownrdly and puerile
to rofuio tj consider ordinarv nominations ,
against which there was no objection In open
If the senate would glvo Important ques
tions proper Impress of secrecy It would
close tbo doors onlv when important subjects
were to be considered. Just so long as the
llttlo things were placed with the big things
the latter would occupy the snmo position in
the minds of senators that the former did.
Some very strong feelmc has been urousod
by the proceedings of the last two secret
sessions of the snnato and It is likely that
something quite spirited will take place be
fore tbo end comes. .

most interesting partions of the Agricultural
department's exhibit of the World's fair will
bo tlio models of the plans Illustrating the at
tacks of the various insects and diseases
which destroy them. To make these models ,
which have to bo absolutely true to raturo ,
two English artists of murveloas ability
have been engaged. Tbo Hare ? . brother and
slstar , who jn'this work far excel nny others ,
have takqn models for their work at the
world's fair bold In London In 1831 , und ut
frequent Intervals since. Tbo models of
fruits uro made of wax , aud such remarkable
skill has boon exercised in the manufacture
that it Is only by the closest scrutiny that
they are to bo told from the real article. Ono
specimen , a piece of apple , containing a gmb
which liar eaten his way Into its center , is so
perfect that when compared with the origi
nal not the slightest difference can bo de
tected. Even when held lo the light it is
translucent In Iho same spots as In the real
applo. Marvelous skill is shown in making
the model leaves in the most perfect manner.

WASHINGTON- . O. , March V7. !
Senator Hill's utter Inability , on his recent
trip through the south , to find miy flaw In
President Harrison's administration , and his
Indirect hut very positive eulogy upon the
wonders our present tariff law has worked
In the Virginias and portions ot Georgia and
Tennessee , has been the subject of much
comment hero among southern men from nil
political parties. It was firmly expected
that Senator Hill , frco trader that ho Is ,
would Jump upon the spirit and tbo opsra-
tion of tbo tariff law adopted by the last re
publican congress. It Is stated that ho wont
south with a view of doing this thing ; but
when ho got down In Virginia and delega
tions , or redemption committees , began to
board his private car , ho found such a course
would never do. Ha was advised lo let the
tariff soverelv alone , bain ? told frankly that
It had done moro lor that country than any
law wo ever bad.
Instead of pouncing upon the tariff law it
will bo seen thai Senator Hill talked of the
many now Industries springing up on every
hand and the apparent evidences ot proi-
perlty. Ho spoke not n word against the
tariff law except In general terms , and then
verv sparingly , very gingerly. Ho did not ,
in fact , do anything but talk of the upbuild
ing south , Its power for the fulure , and general -
oral democratic pilnclplos. Quito all of his
attacks were loft out. lie found the condi
tions very different from what ho expected ,
and has prlvatclv said so to his frlonds. It
Is said by ono of the senator's friends that ho
is not now so anxious for the nomination and
will likely abandon his efforts to get it ,
.Muy Conrt-Murtliil General Grceloy.
It Is staled at tbo War department that a
court-martial will likely bo convened to try
General A. W. Grooloy , chief signal oflleor ,
for a breach of the general order which pro
vides that no ofllcor , active or retired , shall
directly or indirectly without being called
upon bv proper authority , solicit , suggest or
recommend action by members of congress
for or against legislation pertaining to mill-
tar v affairs. General Groeloy is charged
with having addressed the secretary of war
ana members of the house committee on ap
propriations in opposition to placing the new
military bureau of information under the
jurisdiction and control of the adjutant gen
eral's ofllce. GoneralXJrceloy Is said to bavo
advised withholding the necessary appropri
ation for the maintenance of the now bureau
until Iho right ot the chief signal ofilccr to
its control could bo dohnitcly determined.
Adjutant General KellOn hus brought General -
oral Greelcy's alleged broach of discipline to
the attention of Iho department In u loiter
which comments severely upon the violation
of general orders.
No Lobbies In I'uturo.
W. P. Clough of St. Paul , chief counsel of
the Greui Northern railroad and confidential
man of James J. Hill , twenty times a mil
lionaire , is hero and savs tbo Groat..Northern
has practically decided to abandon tbo
lobbies of congress nnd the stale legislatures
and In the future to lake no part in political
matters whatever. In the nast the great
railroads ot the northwest , ho says , have
practically controlled tbo politics of Dakota ,
Minnesota and Nebraska. It has ueen fro-
quonlly charged that ox-Senator Gil PiPrco
was defeated for re-election by the Northern
Pacific because he refused to concur lu tha
appointment of a certain United Slater judge.
ThHdefeat Is said to have cost the Northern
Pacific $10,000. If this Is iruo Mr. Clouch is
probably jifslilled in saying that no railroad
is'justltlod In maintaining lobbies , for , ns ho
says , "It is moro expense than prolit. " The
Northern Pacific , it is said , is already campIng -
Ing on the trail of Senator Casey of Norlh
Dakota. "Tho Great Northern , " says Mr.
Clougb , "will in iho fulure exert ibo same
interest in legislation that nny other largo
property holder would do , but will abandon
lobbying nud other political intcrferonco as
too expensive a luxury. "
To lrencr\o Timber Lands.
Senator Paddock's joint sub-committco

and forestry and public lands which is mak
ing inquiry for the purpose of agreeing upon
a measure which will preserve tbo forests

PnouiA , III. , March'27. Rumors have been
in circulation for'several days to the effect
that those Pcorlans who had sold tholr stock
In the Distillers and Cattle Feeders com
pany contemplated the erection of now dis
tilleries for Iho purpose of fighting iho Irust.
Samuel Wollnor , was mentioned as being In
terested in the now plan and a roportcr called
on him today fo'r information. Ho said
report was correct That ho associated mm-
Belt with others for the purpose of building
two distilleries , Jcach to bo of about 5.000
bushels capacity The capital stock will be
$1,000,000 and wprk will bo commenced ns
soon as tha weather will permit. The trade
wo formerly had , ' snld Woolner , asks us to
go into business' nsutu , and I um satisfied
wo will get triido enough to tnko our
entlro production , Since 1 disposed of
my stock 111 the Distillers and Cattle Feeders
company 1 have had nothing to do , nnd as I
dcslro to bo active , have decided to again go
Into iho distilling'business. I expect to pro
duce cheaper than , the trust , for 1 am a prac
tical distiller and can manage my own busi
ness , while the trust Is compelled to biro
practical distillers to dp it for them. I am
trying to got possession of Iho new process
rcccnilv discovered Hungary. It does away
with Iho usa'of mult in the production of
spirits and alcohol from corn , ana will greatly
reduce the cost Of production. It will bo u
great deal cheaper than wus at llrst claimed
for iho Takutnino process , if It was a success.
Wo propose to buid | barns also and feed
enough cattle to use ) tno , entire slop from the
10,030 bushels. Wejoxpeel to bo running by
tall if Iho weather IS at' all favorable. John

CAUACAS , Venezuela , ( via Galvcston , Tex. )
Mnrcn37. [ By Mexican Cable to the Now
Yotk Hornld Special to TUB BEU. ] A
crisis has been reached ID the political
struggle In this country , aud from nil parts
of the republic come reports of uprisings
against President Palnclo. The news I cabled
you on March 13 of the flgtit between the
government troops and the revolutionists has
been followed by most stirring events in the
capital. Pulaclo's attempt to r.italn his dic
tatorship , for such his ofllco has now ba-
come , or falling In that to have a figurehead
elected to succeed htm as president , hai ar-
rnlcncil the highest court of the land agai nst
Its adverse decision in regard to his right
to continue as chief magistrate , when the
constitution clearly declares ho Is not en
titled to his ofllco , has brought the executive
aud legal powers Into direct conflict. The
result Is that scenes of despotism , tyrrauny
and terrorism have bcnn witnessed within
the past" twenty-four hours In this city ,
recalling the very worst parlods In the his
tory of Venezuela. Palacio's claim that ho
is president is pronounced an outrage by the
supreme federal court , und It adds that ho
holds Iho ofllco Illegally. . Tbo supreme fed
eral court consists of as many members as
there arc states.
llo\v They Arc Selected.
Tbo representatives of each state furnish a
list of principal members and substitutes ,
uud from each state's list-congress cboosiis a
member [ and a substitute. The pronuncia-
mcnto of the court throw Palacio Into n great
rage. Instantly ho sumtnonod Iho police
" 1 want these judges , every ouo ot them , "
ho said , "locked up. " It was a boldauduclous
stop , the overawelng and imprisonment of
the Judiciary by ono it had declared a usurp
cr , but matters bad reached such n state that
all right and law wcro sot aside. There was
no disobeying the stern command of tbo
wrathy ruler.
The pollco sought out the judges , nnd in-
&ldo of twenty-four hours every ono of them
was behind prison bars. Accounts of this
high bunded action spread rapidly through
all parts of the city , and thence were
carried Into the country , causing intense
indignation everywhere. It served us a ral
lying cry to the opponents of the Pnlaclo
und the dictatorial spirit which ho repre
sents. Conservative men who hod hesitated
to range themselves again&t the government ,
oyen though they believed that it was trans-
'presslng tno laws of the land , now piuo up
all hope of a peaceful udjustmont of affairs
tind'jomcd the rebels. The warmest sup
porters of tbo president wcro frightened at ,
the way things were going , and rauny de
serted to the other side' In tha ueliof that
Pnluclo's rule was destined to bo of short
Itevolntlon AVltlegpreml.
All reports confirm the general belief that
revolution has become so widespread that
there will bo great loss of lifo before Palucio
conquers. bis enemies or they succeed in killing
ing or Imprisoning 'him or driving him into
exile , as , hus happened to other presidents of
this rbpuUic. General Cnspo , who is at the
head of the Insurgents , is a goad lighter. Ho
bas been in many a hard fonirht battle before ,
anil has at his back u largo number or tbo
best trained and bravest boloicrs In Vdnczu-
Vla and more than once ho has led thorn to vic
tory. He Is a bltt'-r enemy of Palacio and
fond nf powor. Ho has had bis eye on the
presidency for some time and looks upon
Palucio us a man who is keeping him out of
tbo high oflico ho covets.
Dr. Hogns Paul has not yet appeared on
the sconetbut ho is credited with having
considerable to do with tbo revolt or revolts.
His friends are numerou" . He and they have
been long awaiting a good opportunity to
even matters up with Pulacip | for It was ho
who banished Paul without any cause save
that he was jealous of ono of the best presi
dents Venezuela has had In many years.
Crispo Is engaged In a campaign of strategy
and it Is pot his intention to Invade the
stronghold of the government.
Ho Will Tnko IMcnty of Time.
The time has not arrived for that. Ho Is
willing to await the spread of discontent
throughout Caracas. Ho Is In constant com
munication with secret friends in the capi
tal. They keep him posted as to anything
that Is going on hero. They have advised
him that Palucio is rushing hoadlonc to de
struction ; that his tyranny is alienating
some of his strongest adherents , and that if
bo persists In his proient course ho will have
not only enemies In front of t lie city , but In
Caracas Itself numbers of them will desert to
the foe as soon us tbo right time arrives.
In the mcanwhllu Crlspcs' plan Is to turn
the government troops Into the prairies.
There the lancers , under the insurgent gen
eral , could bo at homo nnd light to the best
advantage while the [ resident's army would
bo handicapped ,
Caracas is in a virtual state of slogo. Lifo
and liberty are unsafe. People do not ven
ture out of doors after nightfall. Arrests
are being made on all sorts of pretexts , and
the prisons will soon bo unable to accommodate
date- those who are committed to them.
Liberty of tlio I'rcHi Suppressed ,
Of courao liberty of tbo press Is out of the
quostlon. No ono durci to express an honest
opinion in tbo papers without being locked
up. All telegrams aud dispatches are care
fully scanned and tbo least thing suspicious
in any of them subjects tbo writer to arrest.
Many prominent men are imprisoned , among
them a lar o proportion of the senators and
deputies from the eight states.
The United Btates war vessel Newark ar
rived at La Guayra today. She arrived
there from Darbadoes , 1 am disposed to un
demand , us a result of my dispatch to the
Herald on March IS relating to the 11 rat en
counter between Potaclo's trooi > s and the in
surgent force. She will remain by order of
Admlral.Uborurdi ut La Uyaura until all the
trouble is over so us to protect the interests
of Americans in Venezuela.
It Is impossible to exaggerate the excite
ment now existing in Caracas. At any mo
ment the strectx may bo fillo-l with armed
citizens "driven to desperation by the iron
rule under which rich and poor , high and
low , statesman and the humblest rcHldeat
now tremble. Tburo is a limit to human en
durance and it Is questionable if u baa not
well nigh boon reached by Palacio's terror
stricuon subjects.
