taken regarding the Interminable ami muddled
condition of affairs attendant onthelwtelec

st the session of Hi committee last Saturday
developed such a wide diversity of opinion
among lis members relative to the merits of the
investigation that It was agreed to make no
recommendations. Th consequence ot this
course will be to Involve tbe Senate In a pro

A great diversity of opinion exists reganl lug
the propriety and necessity of re-enacting tbe
law providing that the Drat sesaion of ea. h Con
gress snail be commenced ou tho 6th of Marth
Instead of December following the expiration of

to this proposition are the possibility that tho
Incoming Congress may be persuaded, too
hastily, to dlstuib existing financial laws, and
that the expense attendant upon theacasiou
would add uiiuecessarlly to the burdens of tax
