The house committee on invalid pensions
today amalgamated the substitute for the
Blair pension bill prepared at last session,
with Representative "Weber's bill in rela
tion to pensions of dependant patents, and
instructed Chairman Mataon to report the
measure to the house and endeavor to se
cure its passage under suspension of tlie
rule.. The substitute agreed upon by the
committee differs from the Blair bill in
this, that while the last mentioned meas
ure provided for a system of divisable pen
sions ranging from $ i to 52-1, according to
the degree of dependence or disability of
the pensioner, the committee's substitute
pi ovides for a reform late of $12 for all
honorably discharged soldiers and sailor
now suffeiing from disability which inca
pacitates them from labor to the extent ot
rendering them unable to earn a sup
port, and who are dependant upon
their daily labor for support.
The committee bill includes soldiers and
sailors of all wars in which the United
States has been engaged, while the Blair
bill was limited in its benefits to soldiers or
sailors of the rebellion.
The second section of the bill limits at
torney's fees to .j for each claim, but con
fers the power on the commissioner of
pensions to allow $10 in certain caes. It
also provides that no pension allowed
under the act shall commence prior to the
passage of the bill, which was incorporated
in the substitute measure. It pi ovides
that considering the pension claims of de
pendant paicnls, the fact and caue of
death, and the fact that the soldier left no
widow or minor' childicn, having been
shown as required by lav,, it shall be nee
essary only that complete and sui'icient
evidence that such parent or pai eats are
without other present means of support
than the contribution of others
not legally bound for their support.
No accurate data as to the expenditures
that will be required under the terms of the
bill was before the committee, but it is esti
mated ihat about 1,000 soldiers and sailors
are at present either in alms houses or de
pendant upon charity for support.

A meeting of Southern representative-!
who favor a reduction in the internal rev
enue taxes was held in the room of the
house committee on judiciary today. The
states of Virginia, North Carolina, South
Carolina and "Georgia w ere represented by
Messrs. Cabell, Daniel. "Wilson, Barbour,
Croxton, OTarrell, Cowlcs, Hcndeison.
Johnson, Skinner and Burnett. Mr. Cabell
was chosen chairman. As the proceedings
of the confcience were regarded as of a
confidential nature it is somewhat difficult
to ascertain the cact result"-, but it is
learned that the call of the meeting
was for the purpose of concerting a meas
ure to lie engrafted upon one of the tariff
bills looking to the abolition of the internal
revenue tax uikui tobacco and spirits dis
tilled from fruits. From the tone of the
dicussion it appeared that nearly all of the
pei-sons in attendance regarded as imprac
ticable the proposition to reduce materially
the tax on whisky. They were practically
unanimous however, in favor of the prop
osition to abolish the tobacco tax, and to
abolish the fruit brand- tax, or reduce it
to a nominal figure, with a view to con
tinuing government supervision over its
manufacture. A committee consisting of
Messrs. Wise. Bennett, Johnson, Bour
bour, Candler and Tillman wire appointed
to formulate amendments embodying these
propositions, which it i- the intention to
oifer as amendments to the Morrison tariff
bill if consideration for that measure is
secured in the house. Another committee
was appointed, comprising nearly all of
the remaining members of the conference,
to sound the other representatives with a
view of ascertaining whether it i feasible
to press measures embodying the proposi
tion in the event of the" failure of Mor
rison's attempt to secure consideration for
his bill. These committees will report
at a subsequent meeting of the
conference. All the proceedings are
regarded as tentative iu their
nature and the propositions above referred
to, and plan of proceedure outlined, may be
materially modified hereafter.
of Republican senators took place this after
noon. It was railed ostensibly to nil Va
cancies in the committee lists. Senator
D Iph was selected to be chairman of the
committee on coast defenses. A half doz
en other vacancies in the committee mem
bership were also tilled. The inter-state
commerce bill was briefly criticized and
discussed, and the tariff was talked about
more at length but no action w&j taken in
reference to cither. An advisory board, in
order of a committee, w.is appointed and
the caucus then adjourned.

The bill introduced by Senator Aldrich
today to provide for the" reduction of the
interest of the bonded debt of the United
States authorizes the secretary of the treas
ury to receive at the treasury," bonds of the
United States bcarieg 4 1-2 per cent an
nual interest and to issue in exchange there
for an equal amount in United States bonds
of such form and denomination
as he may prescribe bearing interest
at the rate of 2 1-2 per cent anuually.
These 2 1-2 per cent bonds shall become
payable at the same date the bonds for
which they are exchanged are payable;
provided, that the 21-2 per cent bonds
issued in exchange for 4 per cents shall not
be called in and paid so long as any bonds
of the United States heretofore" issued
bearing a higher rate of interest shall be
outstanding and uncalled, and the last of
such bonds originally issued under this
act or the substitutes issued therefor shall
first be called in, and this order of pay
ment shall be followed until all of such
bonds shall have been paid.
Section 2 provides that in consideration
of the reduction of interest effected the
secretary of the treasury is authorized to
pay to holders of United States 4 or 4 1-2
per cent, bonds exchanged for 2 1-2 per
cent, bonds, a sum equal iu each case to
the aggregate present worth at the time of
exchange of the portion of the several
quarter-yearly payments of interest from
which the United States is released by such
exchange. In ascertaining such present
worth, interest shall be computed at not
less than 3 per cent, per annum, reinvested
yearly. The 4 and 4 1-2 per cent, bonds
received in exchange shall cease to be evi
dence of indebtedness against the United
States, and shall be cancelled and destroy

circulating notes, the association making
such deposit shall be entitled to receive
circulating notes not exceeding in amount
the par value of the bonds deposited, and
at no time shall the'total amounts of notes
issued to any such banking association
exceed the amount at the time
actually paid in of its capital.

The well-informed ones express grave
doubts as to the result. The Republicans,
and protection Democrats are somewhat
more confident of the failue of the measure
to consider the Morrison bill. Then the
revenue reform Democrats are doubtful of
Mr. Hiscock, Republican, in reply to an
Associated Press reporter's questions, said.
Mr impression is that it will be defeated by
three or four majority. The actual strength
against the Morrison bill, I think, is three
to six, but it is difficult to tell just how it
will come out on account of absentees and
a failure to secure pairs.

New Yokk, Dec. 17- The stock
market was irregular and feverish through
out the da', but generally week in the
forenoon and stronger thereafter. There
was a heavy selling by London in the
early morning hour of Grangers, Vander

in consequence of the advance of the Bank
of England rate, and some fear it might go
higher. The general market wcaKened
considerably, easier rates falling to 3 per
cent at the close. The increased engage
ments of gold from the other side also
gave the bulls here renewed courage and
they bought stocks in a spasmodic manner
whenever the selling pressure was re
moved, which gave the market its feverish

New York. Dec 17. President
