Tlcse gentlemen claim that the fut'irc
salvation of their panj depends un making
provisions for the expenditures of the gov
ernment. If tlie deficit is permitted to
prow, tlie least uneasiness of any kind in
financial circles would start a run an the
gold reserve. Such a run means the issue
or bonds, and t-ucli an ibsue by President
McKlnlej means political rum, unless there
are extenuating circumstances.
If it is possible to show the people of the
conntr that the fault lies with the silver
men, even an issue or bonds bj President

PLANNING THE MEASUKE.
In the House the Ways and Means Com
mittee is already mapping out its work on
the new tariff Lill Certain features
hae been practically deei led on. The
measure will tie along the line of the Mc
Kinlcy till Reciprocity, however, will
lie one of the strongest features.
At the list session this question was
tlio roughly investigated, and a report Here
on, embracing several hundred printed
pages, was presented to the House. This;
report1 was signed by all the Republican
members of the Ways and Means Commit
tee and by two Democrats, Messrs. Cobb
or Missouri and McLaurin of South Caro
oral and written tc-timony was taken
by the committee, which includes state
ments from all classes of business and com
mercial men or e cry shade of iwlitcal opin
ion, and the great bulk or this testimony
was ravorable to the re-esUib'i-hment of a
reciprocity scheme as a part or the per
manent revenue svstem or the country.
Nothing was done in the direction or se
curing reciprocity legislation at the last
cession, ror llio reason that the condition
or parties in tlie present Congress made
nny revision or the tarirf impossible. After
directing attention.to this fact the com
mittee, in concluding the report, savs:
lour committee cannot refrain from
again calling attention to the unanimity
or opinion among the commerclil and in
dustrial associations or the United States
that the reciprocity arrangements nego
tiated under the tariff act or 1890, were
of great benefit to the United States; that
their repeal was a public calamity, and
that the policy they represented shall I e
permanently adopted in our tariff legis
lation." WORK ON' THE HILL.
Work on the bill will begin during the
Christmas holidays with granting heariugs

The Iloukc District Committee, Ch.ilr
man Dabcock pn-sldinp, held n long session
this morning to clear the d--ck for action
hy the House on local measures ilomlay
There were present Commls'-Ioncrs Ro.s
and Tn'c-dell, Attorney for the District S.
T. Thomas Collector of Taxes Da is, Ilealt h
.Officer Woodward, Joseph'Faul, Hon. J.'
J. Hemphill and Brltton and Gray, tie
latter representing the Harbour heirs and
the l'rospcct Hill Cemetery A'ooiallon.
The first hill to he considered was II. R.
8499, In relation to tax sales and taxes
In the District. It was introduced for the
purpose ot proUding a suitahle way to
collect arrears of taxes and to give a
lejial title to all persons hujing at tax
Mr. Richardson argued that the proper
melhoJ is to hring suit In court against
the property under arrears and noUfy by
advertlscment or personal service all per
sons interested to comein and defend theli
rights, in case of judgment against the de
fendants, then the court could gUethchujc:
a Title ot record In a court of law that would
hold good for ever. He believes that thisis
the only solution ota difficulty with which
the Commissioners have had to contend for
years, and which has prevented the proper
collection of arrears.
THE DIFFERENCE IX BILLS.
The question was asked by Gen. Hullck,
of the committee, as to the difference be
tween tlie hill under consideration and TI.
R. 4149, introduced and passed in the
House eeu-rJl sessionsago, but which neter
got beyond the Senate. He said tlie prin
cipal feature of tlie prior bill was that it
was possible underlttogUea goodtlUeat
a tax sale.
Collector Davis explained that that hill
in the Senate was antagonized by Senator
Martin, and that in order to meet his ob
jections the present measure had been
drawn up by the Commissioners. It was
substantially the same, except that it con
tained fewer sections.
Mr. Truesdcll explained that the main
virtue of the present hill is that It will
pass a good title after the payment of all
taxes In arrears.
Chairman Eabcock finally concluded that
the subject should be further considered
and the bill will not be reported favorably
in the House on Monday next.
The old question of the extension ot
North Capitol street through rrospect Hill
Cemetery and the Barbour tract of land
came up in the form or II. E..G713rln
troduced February 26 last.
Commissioner Truesdell explained the
steps taken up to this point by the Com
missioners toward the extension of the
street. The cemetery land had been con
demned and a Jury had fixed the award.
on the ground that it wus excessive. The
court of appeals decided, however, that the
condemnation jury was right In award
ing upon the basis of the value of the land
for cemetery purposes and not for bu'ldiug
uses. Tlie court also granted a perpetuil
injunction against the condemnation of the
THE ONIjT "WAY.
He said Congress and the Couinilsslorurs
have decided that North Capitol street
should be extended, but It could not be
done except by an act of Congress prot Id
Ingfor the paj tuent ot the award, which the
court of appeals has decided must be paid.
Hon. 5. J. Hemphill, ot counsel -for the

The committee of architects represent
ing the Washington Chapter of the nation il
association has progressed so far In its
wortof formulating plans for the proposed
change in the construction aud character
of the observation stands for the Inaugu
ral ceremonies as to have designs drawn
und placed in the hands of Its chairman,
Mr. W . J. Marsh, and has nlo agreed sub
stantially upon the form of the memorial
which will be submitted to the inaugural
committee early next week.
Tlie executive committee of the Irau
gural organization will meet this evening
to elect officers, but at 4 o'clock, in ad
vance of the other, the architects' com
mittee win hold a conference nnd make
arrangements for a meeting with the ex
ecutive committee, and it Is probable that
an agreement us to date will be reached
Tne Ideas which the architects repre
sent are that the stands shall be erected
under the supervision aud remain under
the control or tlie inaugural committee.
The are to be inexpensive in point of con
struction and the revenue to be derived is
to go toward the expense Incurred In erect
TO HOLD S00 PEOPLE.
There are two general dewgns In the
hands of the architects' committees, one
exclusively for the junction of Seventh
street and Pennsjlvanlu avenue, which is
reproduced In Tlie Times todav , and the
other for other Intersections, both to reach
from curb to curb..
Tlie Seventh street plan Is different
from the others by reason of the fact that
there are no buildings on either side, and
tne stand is estimate-el to hold eUO people,
about double the capacity of the others.
There arc- objections to the plan upon the
part of some people upon the grounds that
the capacitj will he much smaller thin
the stands of other da s, hut this the archi
tects do not concede. In addition, they
say that the buildings on the line of the
parade will have an unobstructed view of
tlie passing procession, and that bay-windows
on cross streets will also be accom
modated with a view.
It will probably be a part of the plan
submitted that there shall he one stand
erected for every Stale in the TTnlon, and
that the decorations of each shall include
tlio State seal and such other insignia as
will identify it.
The main argument advanced, however.
Is that the new plan will eradicate the
unsightly structures heretofore admitted
to tlio sidewalks on inaugural occasions,
and that the public buildings, parks end
statuary may be ssen from the route of the
parade by the strangers who visit the
city, and that speculation In the sale of
scats may bs prevented.
FROM $2 DOWN.
The architects say that the more costly
of the stands can be built so that seats may
be sold at not to exceed $2 each, inO. that
tho others may sell at even lower rates
The contend that when thePresldent-elcct
comes out In front of the White House to
greetthe people, he should be permitted to
have an unobstructed view out over Lafay
ette Park, and that the "wooden heaps"
heretofore a feature all along the route of
streets of any other capital city In the
parade should not be tolerated again. They
would never be admitted, they say, to the
The ornamentation of the proposed stands
will be pretty, but not costly, being coin
posed largelrotbuntlng, andyet the effect
may be raa.de In every way pleasing and
It was stated today that six members ot
the inaugural committee arc tevorable to
the project, and the archltcj and others
interested are encouraged to believe that
their plan will be successful.
