tho suu-cotnmittccs. Tho District of

ready for the committee to-morrow.
Theo will bo followed without delay by
tho legislative, cxecutivo nnd judicial
bill, thu salaty roster of tho uutiru civil
tiorsonuel of tho government from tho
Tho District Hill.
An effort w 111 bo mado to pas tho
District and sundry civil bills boforo tho
Christmas holidays. Two vents ago
this parliamentary feat was accomplished
with respect to tho latter bill. Tho leg
islative bill, it is expected, will reach tho
Senate not later than the middle of Jan
uary, which will leave but the fortifica
tion, pensions and deficiency bills,
which should not consuino ocr two or
three days each, to bo disposcdjif by tho
commlttuo qn appropriations'. This
committee is nowconntiiig ujfpn 'Jwving
all its bills except tho deficiency, which
is always held back In tbotiehate, by
early iu Fobrnnry. $, &
The fatu of the rest of thegcncral ap
proiiriatlou measuics will depend upon
tho di-greoof parliamentary stupidity and
bungllug bestowed ttjion them, ns was
notably illustrated dunngtho lato session,
says the Philadelphia i'; correspon
dent. Tho bills taken from tho Commit
tee on Appropriations iu tho various cru
sades nirninst tho si-stum of dtsnatch In
J vogup for sonlo years, laigely on account
otailcstrc to "whip" Jir. natulan into
lino, are the navy, army and military
academy, postotllcc, Indian, diplomatic
and rivers and harbors. No steps have
yet been tacn to advance these meas
ures, so tbnt the appioxiinato time for
them to reacli tho House cannot be Mated.
Tho committee charged with iilTitirs
connected with these meaures will havo
lust three mouths to dispose of them and
havo them receive concurrent action by
tho Senate. In default of this amount of
promptness the then manifest Imbecility
of tho piesont system of distributed re
sponsibility will force an extra session,
not as ap act of volition on thu part of
tho President to dispose of nominations
by the benato aim origination ot a reve
nue reduction and tariff levlsion measure
by thu House, but as an act of compulsion
growing out of thu Incilictcnt methods
adopted by a Dcmoei title House. Sltico
the experience of the last session of Con
gress Speaker Carlisle and Chairman
Mills havo been inclined to favor a res
toration lo the former method of concen
tration of all such measures under one
As the Itepnblicans opposed the dis
tribution it Is probable that they will fa
vor their restoration to tho Committee on
Appropriations when they aro charged
with the responsibility for tho expendi
ture of tho revenue, Tho tardiness and
iiietiicienuy of the new system is not its
only fault. It has been found to en
courage and consummate largely In
creased expenditures for public purposes.

3Ir. T. H. Keller, tho proprietor of
"Welckei's Hotel, on Fifteenth street, has
made some, cxteusivo improvements in
this property, and after an elabotate sys
tem of.iCmbdelHng and repair, the houso
is a model of an Ideal modern hotel and
liming the summer an addition to tho
house of tvventv-tlvo feet front, and ex
tending tho full height, was mado. In
this addition a handsomely furnished
dining-room has been titled up, nnd a

beautifully appointed. There are two
entrances to tho house, one leading into
the hotel proper and tho other affording
dhect atctfts to the re.statitant.
One icatuie of the now hotel, which

ITvo of Whom nit i:ntern .Monarch Kills
Dully ,Iul for Amusement,
A Ficnch missionary who has just re
turned from Uganda shares thu opinion
hold by so many attthoiitlcs that-Stanley
is safe, lie declares It la absolutely Im
possible that if Stanley had succumbed
to an attack the now 3 should not havo
reached tho missions. It seems that
when tho intrepid traveler started from
thu falls a iopoitwa spread that ho was
going to "cat un Uganda," according to
tho expression iu fashion in those be
Tho missionary thinks that Stanley is
keeping quiet for tho present, either be
cattso lie has some political ptoject In
vlow, which Is not yet ilpc, or because
he fears that his appearance might lead
to tho masiacte of thclhigllsh and French
mtsslonatirs, particularly of tho former,
who nro now at the court of Alonimga,
tho sovereign of Uganda. This snmo
Jlonnnga is dcscrlbid as n puissant negro
king ruling over ton million subjects
nnd as ferocious asihu is powerful. Ho
Is accredited with being the happy posses
sor of 1,500 wives, ilvo of whom ho dally
kills oil for his own aumscntent.
Some time aco Mnnahsra received from
Asia Jlluor, tbtougli thu medium of tho
slavo dealers lit Egypt, intelligence of tho
acquisitions mado )iy tyiglund and Ger
many on the Zanzibar coast. Ho at once
assembled all his courtiers and mado
them swear that thoy would exterminate
all tho whites who might seek to "cat up
Uganda." The first lcsultof tho cero
mony wns tho imprisonment of 3Ir. Gor
don, an English missionary, who had
unluckily selected that, very day to road
out to Monnnga a letter from Mr. Parker,
a fellow missionary, reproaching that
monarch with his enormities and ex
horting him to turn over a now leaf.
Mr. Gordon is, or was, in duranco ns a
hostage. Monauga's vory unpleasant be
havior toward him warned tho Fiench
missionaries to withdraw from his domin
ions, tlto only 0110 who has remained be
ing Mr. Sourdcl whoso medical skill is
highly appreciated by tho tyrant, who
hns a decided horror of death. Monauga
is the largest slave trader in Central
Africa, lie supplies tho Mohammedan
dealers atinually with about 150,000
slaves, which aro transported ftom tho
Zanzibar coast to tho rcislan bull and
the Euphrates. Landed on tho shores of
Arabia, tho victims aro sent on to Asiatic
Turkey, where they aro sold"on thcsly"
through tlio medium of tho Pashas, who
rccoivo about ten francs per head for their
Many, howover, dlo on tho road, and
sometimes a whole cargo of these poor
pcoplo is carried off by sickness. In
shott, the story related by tho mission
ary Is sitnnly heartrending, nnd ho evi
dently inclines to the view that Stanley
has been "keeping dark" through tho
fear that the whites, whom Monauga has
in his power, might bo summarily put to

who was out hero tho othur day during
this last war, hearing somebody talk of
the wounded being picked up by a duello
(ambulance litter), and ho took it for
some kind of wild beast, nnd began his
next letter with a thrilling account of
'tho ferocious doollo swooping down upon
