WnsliInKton, Fob. 7. Tlirce weeks nnel
three woiklnp; days only lcinnln to this
congress, ntul tlioio itro iniuked evi
dences of nn Intention on the part of
the senate to catch up with some of the
work that has been iicRleuted. Appio
pi latum bills cause little uneasiness
for they can be speedily passed, und,
besides no Kteat hat m would follow In
View of the extia session which Is to be
called for March 15 Is some of these bills
failed to become laws befoie the fourth
of Mai eh.
The arbitration tieaty with Cleat
llrltuln will be taken up tomoriovv, Mr.
Sheiman Inning given notice to that
effect. The ehalinmn of the foreign ic
latlons committee Is very sanguine and
expects to see the tieaty piomptlv iat
llled. Ilo will ask the senate to lemalu
In seciet session so that they may be
able to leaeh a vote on It by Tuesdny,
If possible. Mr. Shei man's sanguine
views nic nut shaied by other senatois
who aie probably bettor Infoimed as
to the feeling of the senate on thlb mat
ter. Mi Hale feais that the oppo
nents ot the treaty may be able to de
feat It. Other senators anticipate an
oiganl'ed eltoit to stall nn Intel mln
able debate on the tieaty with the view
of holding It up until after the fouith
of March. It Is well known that sev
eial senators hae ptepared elab
oiate speeches on the subject and
the men who aie opposed to the treaty
are those who will debate It most.
When the tieaty is called up tomor
row a motion w 111 be made to have the
dlbcusslon pioceed with open doors. It
Is doubtful if this will pievall, but a
veiy consldeiable vote will favoi It
As the lesult ot a conference of the
Republican and Democratic steering
committees It has been ngieed that the
Nluuagua canal bill owing to the (111
busteilng against it shall be diopped
tomoirow and the bankiuptcy bill sub
stituted in Its nlace as the regular or
der. This action is not calculated to
make Mr. Moman, who has been the
special champion ot the Nlcaiaguan
canal bill an less vigorous in his oppo

he legaids as being mixed up with the

The bankiuptcv bill will probably be
glen the light of way after the aibi
tiation tie.ity hns consumed a couple
of days. The bill as leported to the
senate dlffci.5 mateilully fiom the bill
which passed the houe.
Many speeches w ill be made on It In
the senate. The house bill piovldes
only for Involuntaiy bankiuptcy, and
some senatois contend Is drawn solely
in the Intel est of the ciedltoi class
The majority leport to the senate pto
vldes for voluntaiy bankiuptcy except
In cases of fiaud. The text of the
pioposed measute, which made sixty
four pages when passed by the house,
has been condensed by the senate to
IS pages. Mr Hoar has made a minor
ity icpoit In favor of the house meas
uie and Mr. Nelson, icpiesentlng some
of the western Ideas, lias offeied a sub
stitute for sixteen bectlons of the bills
repoi ted by Mr. Teller on behalf of
the majoilty of the committee.
Follow Ing the bankruptcy bill the
senate may take up the Ilawnilan cable
measuie piovidlng for the payment of
$100,000 a year for twenty venis to a
company building and maintaining a
cable between the United States and
Honolulu and between Honolulu and
Japan. Theie Is no piospect, how
ever, of this measuie becoming law

THE JOINT SESSION.
On Wednesday next both houses of

will make William McKinley the next
president of the United Stntes, and
Gairet A. Hobait, of New Jeibey, Ice
pi esldent. Statements as to probable
piotests and interruptions are legal ti

Pui.suant to the law of 1S87 the senate
and house of lepiesentathes will meet
in joint convention In the hall of the
house of repiesentatlves at 1 o'clock p.

They will take official cognizance of the

NEW BASE BALL RULES.
Recommendations Submitted by the
Committee to President Young.
Washington, Feb 7, The following
recommendations of the committee to
prepare new playing rules foi tno Na
tional League and Ameilcan Associa
tion of professional base ball clubs has
been given out for publication:
N. E. Young, Fiesldent the Nntlonal
League and Amoilcan Association of
I!GfesIonnl Base Hall Clubs:
Dear Sir We, the committee ap
pointed to lecommend chanses In tho
code of plavlng uiles of the National
base ball clubs, beg to report as fol
lows: Wo commend no change In rules 1 to
13 Inclusive, which are those governing
the laying olf of a ball giound, but
suggest the Incoiporatlon in the uiles
of a foot note calllns uttentlon to nn
addenda to the playing lules, in which
will bo found direction for "A .simple
way of laying off a ball Held "
In section 2 of rule 11 legardlng tho
ball, we suggest Jie addition of tho
words: "In the event of a new ball
being Intentionally dlscoloied or other
wise injuied by a player, the umpitp
shall upon appeal from the captain of
the opposito side forthwith demand the
return of that ball and shall substitute
another now ball and Imposo u, line of
$5 upon tho offending player."
This addition Is mado so that the um
pire may moie easily enforce the re
quirements of the lule.
We recommend the addition to rule
20, wlilch iclates to players' benches,
a now section which' la ns follows:
Section a. To enforce this rule, the
captain of tho opposite side may call
the attention of the umpire to a viola
tion, wliejcupon the umpire shall im
mediately older such player or players
to be seated. tf the order Is not
obejed within one minute, the offend
ing player or plajeis shall be debaued
f torn, lurther paitlclpatlon In the game
and shall bo obliged to leave the play
ing Held foithwlth.
Section 1 ot rule 27 relating to sub
stitutes Is mnde to read ns follows:
In eveiy championship game, each
side shall be lequlicd to have piescnt
on tho field In uniform a sulllclent
number ot substitute players to cairy
out the provision which lequlies that
not less than nine plnyeis shall occupy
the field In any Innings of a game
In tulo 2!i, which' defines tho pitcher's
position, Is added:
"If the plteher falls to comply with
the icqulremeiits of this rule, the uni
plie must call 'a balk." "
In section 1 of mle 37, which lequlres
play ei s to be seated on the players'
benches, although not changed In the
diction, Is leally changed In effect, now
"When their side goes to bit, tho
playeis must immediately letutn to the
playeis' bench ns defined In lule 20 and
leiualn theie until the Hide Is put out,
except when called to the bat, oi they
become substitute base runners, pio
vlded that the captain or one player
only, (except that of base luntieis aie
occupying each and all, (list, second
and thhd bases, then the captain and
one plnyer or two plnyeis may occupy
the bpace between tho plnyeis' lines
and the captain's lines to coach base
runners)." This permits but one
coach, when less than three base l lin
nets are on the buses In tho unlfotm
of the olub who may stand In either
of teh club who may stand In either
box, known as the coachet's box. This
change Is iccommonded because It has
been pi oven In the p.iht that the pies
ence of two coaeheis nllows a "cioss
mil" of talk between them foielgn to
the game and frequently of a character
obleetlonable to the spectatuis,
The butting rules have been changed
In diction matcilally, but not In their
To section 1 of mle l", which defines
when a batsman Is out for batting out
ot older, the last sentence Is changed
to lead- "And fui theunoie, no othei
batsman th'un the one who batted out
of older shall bo declaied out on the
An additional section Is added to this
rule. Tt leads:
"Section 11. The moment a batsman
Is declaied out by the umplie he shall
call for tho batsman next in order to
leave his seal on the bench and take
his position at the stand, such player
of the batting side shall not leave his
seat on the bench until so called to
but except as piovlded by rule 37, sec
tion 1, and mle 52 "
Section 1 of mle 4G is mado to lead:
"If while he be a batsman without
making any attempt to stilke at the
ball, his iei 'on excepting hands or
fiuenim, which makes It a dead bail
or clothing be hit by a ball fiom the
pitcher, unless in the opinion of the
umplie ho plainly .olds making any
effort to get out of the way of the ball
from the pltchei, and theieby peimlts
himself to be hit."
This we consider to be self explan
atory. Rule 47, which lequlres that bases
be touched by base lunners, has been
amended by the addition of tho fol
lowing woids: "However, no base
runnel shall score a inn to count In the
game until the base runner piccedlng
him in the batting list piovlded there
has been such a base lunner who has
not been put out In that Inning shall
hae first touched homo base without
being put out." Disputes have ailsen
when one base lunner has passed an
other base i unnei and touched home
base befoie the lunner who was passed
touched It. This pla has never heie
tofoie boon coveted by the uiles.
To section 7, mle 4i Is added, "Ex
cept his gloved hand" under the cap
tion "The Umplie." We lecommend
the insertion of a foot note calling at
tention to "advice to umplies" in lut
ed In the addenda to the plnylng rules,
which Is as follows: "You are tho
absolute master of the field fiom the
beginning to the termination of the
game You are by these titles given
full authority to order any player,
captain oi manager, to do or to omit to
do any act which you mav deem neces
saiy to maintain v our dignity and com
pel lespect fiom plajers and spec
Do not In any case temnoilze with
a mle bieakei. Never attempt to
'even up' after having made a mis
take. Re stilct In what may .seem to
be trivial muttcis, theieby "nipping In
tip bud" trouble befoie It fully de
velops The captain only is allowed to ap
peal to jou on a legal mislnteipieta
tlon of the uiles. If he claims that
you hnvs eried, It Is pioper that the
spectatois should know what the
Compel respect from all aud your
task w ill be an easy one.
In mle 50 the woids "the player shall
bo fined the sum of $25" ate sti leken
out and the words "he shall bo lequlicd
to iisfess a line of $25 against the pliljer
so lemoved" substituted. This change
is mude to make It clear that the um
plie Is lequited to assess tho line.
New sections Nos. C, 7 and & aie added
to mle CO. They are as follows:
Section C. The umpire shtll not ad
dress tho spectators at any time, ex
cept In case of neeessaiy explanation
of mlsundei stood decisions or points of
Section 7, No decision, rendered by
the umplie, shall be leversod by him,
In which the question of error of judg
ment Is alone Involved. And no such
decision shall be leversed on the tes
timony of any plavet engaged in the
game or on that of any spectator
Section 5. Should the umpire tender
any decision based on an illegal Inter
pretation of any rule, of the game, tho
same shall bo leveised on the appeal
of either tw o caytalns, but not other
The changes in rule CO are all made
x 1th the view of making the duties of
the umplie clear.
Some changes ate mado In the man
ner of scoring and In conclusion the
"You Will obseive that no changes are
iccommended In the uiles goeining

MARKETS AND STOCKS.
Wall Street Review.
New York, Fob. C Tho dealings at tho
Stock Exchange wero on a very small
scnlo today. Stocks were rather Irregu
lar. A few of tho prominent Issues reced
ed fractionally, but befpro tho expiration
of the first hour ot trading tho market
showed a tendency to lmpiovo. Sugar

tho stock were: less aggressive. American
Spirits was more active, tho common ris
ing V to 13 and the preferred 1'4 to 33. lit
tho lalhvay gtoup, North l'aelllcs wore
notably firm, Tho managers of tho ro
ot ganlzutlon syndicate completed the
