SENATOR BECK B PL AX
Washixgtos. D. C. Feb. 12, 1878.-
la looking around for means ol reducing
federal taxation, which now amounts to
forty dollars per annum for every house
. hold In tbe country, there are two sub
Jects which Immediately attruct atten
tion. Tbe first is the sinking fund.
Thii fund, accumnlatinff at the rate pre
,,' ecribed by law, will extinguish the pub
lic debt in a given number ol years,
; But under different secretaries more has
been added to the lund than Is required
' by law. Senator Beck proposes that no
f more money be set apart lor tbe fimd
$ than Is necessary under the law. This
Is not only an unobjectionable proposi
tion, but It la a more strict compliance
with existing hw than the course hnre-
' tolore pursued. Next Is a radical

, MR. WOODS' TARIFF BILL.
The bouse committee on ways and
i means is making considerable progress
in examining tbe new tarid bill ol Mr,
t Woods. So tar, greatly to tbe delight of
that gentleman, the bill meets with the
i almost unanimous approval ot the com.
I mittee. It is hardly to be expected, per-
baps, that a single session will be sufU-
cient time for both houses to discuss and
pass so comprehensive a measure, but
- It is evident that there is a strong dUpo-
sltlon to hasten action as much as
i '; possible.
THE DISTIKGCIdHINQ FCATCRK

Mr. Hayes causes it to be announced
that be believes In what be calls " the old
whig doctrine" that veto power should

violation ot the constitution. If that "old
Whig party" is responsible for all the
twisting and turning of Mr. Hayes on
this and other subjects tbe evil that it
does after death is greater than what it
could have done U life.

JJayes entered Into an elaborate discus
