Returns From His Outing Trip.
WASHINGTON, March 0. There was
evidence during the progress of routine
business in the senate this morning of a
purpose on the Republican side of the
chamber to displace the tariff question
witha silver discussion over the Bland
bill. (rTliere. were but few Democratic
sensixMs. Jntha,chamber when-the vic

ened interest. by offering the following
resolution - and asking its reference to
the committee on finance.
Whereas, The secretary of the treasury
has announced a deficit of $78,000,000 foi
the current year,
Whereas, House bill No. 4,804, known
as the Wilson bill, proposes to discard
$70,000,000 revenue from present tariff tax
ation and to meet the double deficiency
by new internal direct taxation, therefore,
be I ifc
Resolved, That the senate finance com
mittee frame amendments to the senate
bill amending the said bill, omitting the
said internal and direct taxes newly pro
posed and instead thereof, make provision
for sufficient revenue by tariff on foreign
imports and otherwisa revising the tariff
without creating a de ficiency.
The silver stormcloud, which had been
lowering all the morning, broke over the
senate when Mr. Harris (Tenn.) moved
the second reading of the Bland bill.
In doing so, he stated to the senate and
especially to the senator from Nevada
(Mr. Stewart) that the latter was not a
more earnest advocate of silver coinage
than he. Bat he (Harris) believed that
there was one question which should take
precedence over this and, without any
breach of confidence, he could state that
the finance committee was on the verge
of reporting the tariff bill to the senate.
He, therefore, objected to further pro
ceedings on the seigniorage bill, and un
der that objection it would have to go to

SOMK POSTAL SERVICE FIGURES,
Representative Henderson's Report on the
Washington, March 6. Interesting
facts concerning the postal service are
embodied in the unusually complete re
port on the appropriation bill, compiled
by Representative Henderson, chairman
of the committee on postoffices. The
estimates of the department on which the
bilLis'based amounts to, $90,399,485, ex
clusive of special facilities on trunk
lines, an item amounting to $19S,G14.
The bill recommends an appropriation of
$87,470,590, which is in round numbers
$3,000,000 less than the estimates and
about the same sum in advance
of the appropriations for the
current year. The estimated postal
revenue for the fiscal year 1893 is $81,-
427,748, so that the postal service is
nearly self supporting. A mate rial re
duction from the estimates is made in
the compensation of postmasters. The
amount asked was $17,250,000 and that
recommended is 16,000,000. For free
delivers service the estimate of $12,327,-
CS5 is recommended, an increase of $1,-
000,000 from the preceding year.
The Hatch Antioption Rill.
Washington, March (5. Leading
members of the New York Produce and
Mercantile exchange were again before
the house committee on agriculture to
combat the Hatch antioption bill.

between Mr. Hatch, chairman of the com
mittee, and the commercial representa
tives. Mr. Hatch characterized
the written statement of Presi
dent BJoss of the New York
Cotton exchange as an "arraign
ment of the committee." He said that
an objection to it would cause its exclu
sion, but he would raise no objection.
Mr. Bloss' statement was very plain and
urged that the Hatch bill was pernicious
and an unwarranted meddling with the
individual liberty of citizens.

the crowd and in an instant every win
dow pane was smashed to atoms.
A large dynamite cartridge was ex

Chicago, March C After a wordy
wrangle covering nearly three years it
now looks as though Evan Lewis, the

south paid less than $9,000,000; of the
$177,000,000 custom receipts, the south
paid but $4,000,000: of the miscellaneous
receipts, less than $2,000,000. "So that,"
said he, addressing tho southern mem
bers, "you contribute less than $15,000,

How do you get that back, $9,000,000 re
turns as sugar bounty; $5,000,000 in pen
sions, and $5,000,000 as a deficit in pos
tal receipts. You, therefore, receive
back $3,000,000 more than you contrib

ern pensions. What difference does it
make to you what we do with our
money'' Republican applause.

amendment to the bill. The only other
