Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, Dec. 9. —In the senate,
today, the bill introduced at last session
to establish a public storehouse for farm
products, in each county within the
limits of the repub.lic, was reported
back adversely and indefinitely post
Plumb introduced a bill to reduce the
amount of United States bonds required
of national banks, and replace their sur
rendered notes, and to provide for the
free coinage of silver. Referred to the
committee on finance.
He also offered an amendment (in the
same terms) to the bill now on the
calendar, so that the matter can be
brought before the senate independently
of the report of the finance committee.
In doing so, he gave notice that if the
elections bill is not disposed of at an
early day, he would move to lay it aside
for the time being, in order that the bill
just introduced by him, and all other
measures relating to the financial condi
tion of the country, could be considered.
McPherßon offered a resolution, which
was agreed to, calling on the secretary
of the treasury for a certified copy of
the accounts of John I. Davenport, chief
supervisor of elections in the southern
district of New York, for the elections of
'84, '86 and '88.
A resolution by Jones, of Arkansas,
calling on the attorney general for a
statement of the moneys paid, or called
for, by the supervisors of the first and
second congressional districts of Arkan
sas, in connection with the iate election,
was agreed to after a etatement of Jones
that he had seen a newspaper report to
the effect that the supervisor presented
an account for $6000.
The election bill was then taken up,
and Berry spoke in opposition. As
an illustration of the bad effects
of such a law, he referred to the ap
pointment by United States Circuit
Judge Williams, in Arkansas, of John
McClure, as chief supervisor of elec
tions. Judge Williams, he said, lost the
confidence of a large portion of the peo
ple of Arkansas on account of his im
posing on them the very worst man in
all Ar- ansas to exercise the high func
tions cf that office. The same thing
might occur in all the other states, the
supervisors holding their offices for life.
If the circuit court judges were Demo
crats (as they are now for the most part
Republicans), this bill would not be ad
vocated on the other side of the cham
ber. It was, therefore, a partisan
Berry savagely scored Supervisor Mc-
Clure, and entered an earnest protest
against the bill as a measure designed
to legalize fraud.
Daniel sooke briefly, after which
George obtained the floor.
Aldrich, from the finance committee,
reported the house bill to authorize the
payment of a rebate in certain cases (to
correct the enrollment of the tariff bill)
and asked Unanimous consent to have it
considered, but Plumb objected, and
the bill went on the calendar.

THE NICARAGUA CANAL.
What Has Been Accomplished on the
Big Ditch in the Past Year.
Washington, Dec. 9. —The annual re
port of the Maritime Canal company, of
Nicaragua, covering the year ended
December 1, 1890, shows that during
that time work has been prosecuted with
energy, and that great progress has been
made. The final plans and detailed sur
veys have been completed and verified.
Parts of the San Juanillo, Deseado, San
Francisco and other navigable streams
have been cleared of snags and other
obstructions, and several miles of the
route of the channel haß been grubbed
and made ready for dredging.
About 100,000 cubic yards of the canal
has already been excavated, and several
miles of aqueduct to supply fresh moun
tain water to the company's headquar
ters has been completed. Ten miles of
railroad, now under construction from
the Atlantic port to the divide, is now
practically completed. Very satisfac
tory progress has been made on the
breakwater to protect the Atlantic har
bor from shifting sands.
During the year the company pur
chased a dredging plant at Panama, and
the greater part of it has been trans
ferred to Greytown. Great improve
ment in the hospital service was made
during the year. The very important
work of dredging the harbor of San Juan
Del Norte has been energetically prose
cuted. The health of the employees was
very good, and there were nb deaths
from fever in the past three months.
Since the organization of the com
pany 10,145 shares of capital stock have
been subscribed, aggregating $1,014,500,
most of which has been paid in. Since
organization the company has expended
for work and material $772,263 in cash,
and $2,000,060 of full paid capital stock,
and is obligated for $4,298,000 of its first
mortgage bonds. The liabilities of the
company consist oi amounts still due un
der the concessions granted it, and the
$4,298,000 bonds above mentioned, and
cash liabilities not exceeding $50,000.

PURGING THE MAILS.
Wauamaker Refuses to Handle Mexican
Washington, Dec. 9. —It is stated at
the postofflce department that the mails
sent from Mexico into the United States
have recently been burdened with circu
lars of Mexican lotteries, inclosed in
sealed envelopes, the corners of which
were clipped and postage paid at the
rate of one cent, which is permissible
under the laws of Mexico. Under tbe
laws of the United States the enclosure
of such circulars in sealed envelopes
would require them to be held for post
age, and refuse of admission to the mails
as printed matter. The postmaster
general has been in correspondence with
the director-general of posts of Mexico,
on this subject, and it has been agreed
that the lottery circulars referred to
shall no longer be carried in the mails
nor delivered to addresses in this
Plumb's Financial Bill.
Washington, Dec. 9.—The bill intro

relative to national bank deposits and
silver coinage, provides in brief as fol
lows: That the compulsory requirement
of deposits of United States bonds with
the treasury, by national banks, be lim
ited to $1000 for each bank. This is not
to apply to deposits of bonds to secure
public moneys. That United States mint
certificates shall be issued equal in
amount to the national bank notes retired
since 1882, and hereafter retired. That
the present silver coinage law shall be
amended, so as to direct the secretary of
the treasury to purchase all the silver
bullion ottered at the market price, not
to exceed $1 for 371.25 grains of pure sil
ver, and issue treasury notes in pay
ment. When the price is for six months
in excess of the above figure, purchases
are to'be suspended and coinage to be
free ; bullion silver bars to be paid in the
redemption of United States treasury
notes at the rate of $1 for 400 grains.

Associated Press Dispatches.
San Francisco, Dec. 9.—Collector T.
G. Phelps was the principal witness be
fore the congressional committee on im
migration today, and furnished some
statistics concerning the use of opium.
He stated that between July, 1888, and
November 1, 1890, there had been im
ported, in round numbers, 176,000
pounds of prepared smoking opium, the
duties on which approximated $1,760,
--000. In the same period 177,000 pounds
of crude opium had been imported. He
expressed the opinion that half as much
opium is smuggled in ns comes through
the custom house. Opium smoking was
becoming common in many parts of the
country where formerly unknown, and
was even being used by children. Wit
ness said he wished to make the sugges
tion that the importation of smoking
opium be absolutely prohibited. The
collector also testified as to the fraud
ulent immigration of Chinese. Two
members of the police force testified to
finding Chinamen imprisoned at the
quarters of the Six Companies for fail
ure to pay debt.

particulars of the massacre of Chinase
Christians at Loong Tuy Tsin, by mem

patron deity. After the celebration,
which lasted several days, the brother
hood consulted their joss as to whether
it would be safe to plunder the Christ
ians. The answer being in the affirma
tive, the brotherhood made a raid on a
number of well-to-do Christian families,
and carried off a lot of booty.
A few days later they made a fresh
attack and massacred over twenty per
sjns. Nineteen bodies were counted in
the streets, and several are known to
have been cut in pieces and thrown into
