Senator McMillan does not intend to call

Meanwhile the chairman is going over

win be no reason why speedy results should

been referred to the District Committee.

No Chance for It So Lung as There
Is a Treanry Deficit.
There is no pof-ible show for the passage
of the bill providing for the use of Irttts
alcohol in the arte and sciences. The re
port of th" committee which has betjn
investigating this subject all suur-tar
submitted its rerort to the Senate, to
gether with the voluminous testimony thaS
has been taken.
The committee, Mr. Flatt, of Coaneetteat,
chairman of the joint committee, saw,
could agree upon but one thine, and tha8
seemed to be the essential, that there was
D) possibility of pacing such legfclatloH
so long as the reenuos were in their pres
ent condition Mr. Piatt gave the Sen.ue
to understand that it would be folly to
try to do anything that would reduce the
revenues so long as the receipts dhl not
equal the expenditures.
The bill will cieate a defieit-aheuid it
pass-of $10,000,000, aud this is not the
tine to create more deficit. The olef
worry of the Treasury Department is to
fn.il more reenue, not to increase She
deficit, so that there appears to be a
great deal of force in what Mr. Plattsors.
The debate caused some sarcastic pas
sages between Mr. Chandler, who naturally
loves a scrap, and Mr. Hale, who is not
averse to indulging in sarcasm and Utter
repartee. Mr Hoar, who is the chief
promoter of free alcohol iu the arts, be
cause his section of the country is the
largest c msumer, thouzht the bill ought
to pass, aud he suggested that the deflate
could be made good by increasing the tax
on beer one-half dollar u. barrel.
Mr.lloar was ftauk enough to admit, how
eer, that this could not be dune, and as
serted as the reason the political power
of the brewers of the country. There wa
also a reference to the proposition, which
has been suggested in some quarters, to
reduce the tax on whisky to 70 cents a
gallon, but the short discussion along
that line showed very clearly that such
a proposition wohld not meet with favor
among JRepublican leaders. Finally, lha
subject went over without action.

Judge Hcgiter, upon condition, stipulated
in the order foi release, that Geyer turn
over to his wire his interest in the personal
property now In the house occupied by
