A Lively Debate nn Shauahan's Kail.

Sacbamhnto, Jan. 10.—The assembly
convened today at 11:30 a.m. Bulla
preeented s petition from 250 citizens of
Lob Angelef,.askicg that the "scalper"
bill be uot parsed.
The committee on attaches reported
against the appjintav.-nt of a dozi-n
minor attaches, and in favor of a num
ber oS Others. The discussion of the re
port lasted optil recess, the time there
for being extended.
Baid the roil of at
taches already amounted to more than
the pay of the members.
Price, Dero., of Butte, moved to throw
the whole matter "out of the window."
He objected to political diccussiona on
Kabu, Rep., of San Francicco, said
the discussion of the report alone had
cost tbe state $820, as the morning ses
sion was wasted.
After recess tbe committee's report
was disposed of. the majority of the ap
pointments being rejected.
Sbaushan's bill for the re-agHessmant
of taxes wss then taken no, tbe ques
tion being on Anderson's amendment
making the time eince which taxes be
come invalid the year 18S9 instead of
Anderson eaid tba purpose of the
amendment was to bring the bill within
the provisions of the statute of limita
tions. The bill, he said, applied to
every individual and every dollar's
worth of property in the state, and re
quired careful attention, and be claimed
the bil) as presented waa wholly hasty
Shanahan said Anderson offered no
authorities ih support of his contention.
Two and a talf million dollars in taxes
had been held back by the railroads, due
to the state, and unjust discrimination
had nee'i made in their favor. The
peopleweis burdened with 15 per cent
penalty on delinquent taxes, and the
railroads, cmjy 5 per cent. The amend
ment; he said, strikes to the very heart
of hia measure. The measure was not
the work of a day, of an hour
or a year, but of a number of
years, and had been prepared
with a view to meet constitutional
objections. -He then quoted a number
of authorities on the matter of limita
tion. There is, he said, a provision in
the assessment books tbat county assess
ors shall assess at a double rate prop
erty which in the previous year escaped
taxation. Let tbe legislature proceed in
a logical way, and it tbere in any dispute
on tbe matter oi limitations, refer it to
the courts and ccc if they will deny the
people of.California their rightn.
Sbanabau'e speech was frequently
punctuated with applause.
Bledsoe followed, and his statement
tbat a class of legislation of the last ses
sion bad been left at home, snowed un
der by pppular disapproval, waß also
Alford followed. The Democratic
plattprm, he said, pronounced in favor
of ecanomy. No greater measure in be
half of economy could be pajsed.
Dodge of Alameda eaid the bill
provided nothing unjust and nothing
unfair;, He asked the legislator to put
themselves on record at this, the be
ginning of the thirtieth session.
BrStz eaid the Populists were "all
right" on this measure.
Anderson, replying to the opposition,
said if the measure was amended co ac
to make it constitutional, it would re
ceive his support. He offered, however,
to withdraw his amendment.
Bledsoe objected to ita withdrawal,
and demanded the ayes and noes.
The aßiendment was rejected—77 to 1.
Anderson alone voted aye. Anderson
then changed bin vote from no to aye
to make it unanirnoua.

Washington, Jan. 16 —The sub com
mittee of ways and means committee on
investigation of the condition of the
treasury expects to receive tba latter
part of thia wees a large amount of in
formation for treasury experts. The
treasury officials have been at work
steadily for threo weeks on a report. It
can be said on good authority that the
treasury statement will not show a de-
Scit in the treasury or tho probability of
>ne during tbe present fiscal year. But
i close analyßia is expected to show that

Tf , IC K ,al »*juu at tine session raising an
ditional revenue, to have even a harder
task with pensions steadily increasing.
Secretary Foster lias Informed the
members of congress that there will be
an available balance in the treasury
July Ist, next, of $20,000,000. The bal
ance, however, includes nothing for the
sinking fuud, of which the annual re
quirements are $48,000,000. The Demo
cratic members of congresß exoect to
Ebow that there have been times when
the deficiency was only prevented by the
policy of not paying anything today
which could be put off until tomorrow.
Not a single new oubiic building haß
been provided for during this congress,
but there still remains over $14,000,000
to bs expended on account of public
buildings and $11000,000 against which
there are no outstanding contracts.
Thera are other matters alao in which
the government revennes have made it
necessary for the treasury to "go flow,"
for fear that for the first time in many
yeara the balance would be on the
wrong side of the ledger.
Oa the result of the investigation will
depend whether or not the wayß and
means committeo will recommend legis
lation increasing tbe revenues at thia
session. The present plan suggested,
which is regarded as the most expedi
ent, is an increase of the whiaky tax.
This increase would raise over $33,000,
--000 additional yearly, if the law could
be bo framed as to affect whisky in
bond. There are many persons who
prefer to revise the whole taxing system
atODce. What, will be the outcome of
course is uncertain at this tiino, but
matters may soon develop by action on
the part of tho ways and means commit

"Fur sixteen years I have suffered with ca

disease seemed to be present," said Mr. A. C.
Black to the writer
Mr. Black is a well-known gentleman In Los

glad to havo any one suffering irom catarra
call on him and learn what he has to say in
regard to his case.
A. C. BLACK, 345 SOUTH HILL BTRBKT.
In further speaking of his troubles ho said:
'•I hay* been constantly annoyed by catarrh lor
the last sixteen years, but I never ibought of
its becoming chronic until about six years t»go,
when J b,-gr«u to feel it gradually gaining a
stronger bold upon me. It took on a form of a
uisluiia all through my system.
My nose was continually stopped up, my
thruat sore and Irritated, and 1 was constantly
hawking and spitiinn, trying to ditdodge
mucous that dropped back into my thro it. My
palate dropped down ou my tongue, causing
me a great deal of annoyance. My stomach
became weak. I hart no appetite, and when 1
did eat tbe food lay like lead in my stomach.
My stomach would bloat and fill with gits,
causing me so much distress that I felt nt times
like I would rather starve than to be iv such
misery after eating.
I tiled all thu patent medicines I saw recom
mended, but they aid not seem to have any ef •
feet on my oase. At Inst, about two months
ago, I read tome of the testimnrlals of grateful
patients treating with Dr. De Monco and asso
ciates, aud at once I went to tbem at their
offices in the hrovreßs building, and alter
giving me a thorough examination, they told
me I wif* nlf-'flted with catarrh of the head,
throat, and stomach In anßWerinn my inquiry
ns to their charges; they told me in a straight
forward manner thai their chargea were $5 per
month, and all medicine furnished without ex
tra charge. I began treatment, and am most
happy to say J bei/an to improve from ihe first
treatment. X also feel it m> duty to fay a woid
in regard to the tiHatrcent the- give lor the
benefit of the sufierfn* pc pie who may have
gone throrgh the burning and tooth-palling
treatment oi unqualified physicians.
Dr. De Monco and associate*' trea'ment is
mild and soothing, and any little child can
take tnelr treatment and medicines with ease.
I can say that I now feel like Huother person—
they have made such a change in me. My
stonxuth haa assumed its normal state, and I
f>el like a well man. I recommend Dr. De
Moncn and associates very highly, and advise
ail Kuft'erers to call on these specialists and
place their caso under their skillful care."
