For two weeks eggs have remained
quiet and unchanged. The produc
tion in the South has increased, but
the continued cold weather in the
West and North has checked produc
tion in those sections which has held
the markets about steady for some
time. A few bright pleasant days
throughout the country would great

better demand and prices have ad
vanced to G to 7 cents for nice dried
apples, but there is very little now in
first hands. Other country produce
remains about the same, except nice

Washington, Jan. 1J, IS'.U.
Matters at the Federal City are cer
tainly in mixed condition. Congres
sional affairs are progressing slowly,
considering that the session has only
one month and a half of life left, and
things bear the complexion of an ex
tra session in event thxt appropria
tion bills, either one or more, shall
fall. No private legislation worth
the mention has been accomplished,
and the chances are that the mass of
bills, reported from the various com
mittees having such matters in
charge, will fail of consideration for
want of time. The efforts so far
made to secure consideration of the
French Spoliations Bill, which em
braces such cases as have been exam
ined and reported by the Court of
Claims, and carries several millions,
have not been attended with success,
and as this measure will undoubted
ly create wide debate, if considered
at all, it will probably be forced over
to next Congress.
The bill to refund the direct taxes
imposed during the late war, is being
pressed, hut this measure is bitterly
opposed and hence Will fail of consid-
I tration. The shipping or Subsidy
bill, is not in the advantageous shape
Us promoters desire, and although
there is a strong lobby at work to
urge its passage, it is extremely
doubtful whether the measure can
carry in the House. Financial leg
islation is in the throes, and at the
present juncture it is impossible to
predict what action the House will
take on the Senate Free Coinage bill.
It is confidently asserted that the
rresiuent will veto a lree coinage
bill, unless silver can be placed on an
international stanaara or value, so
that ail civilized nations shall agree
as to a ratio of value as between sil
ver and gold. The free coinage men
will not consent to this, since they
claim that the United States Govern
ment is abundantly able to maintain
its own standard.
The Indian war in the North-west,
its causes and probable effrct upon
the future policy of the government
of the Indian tribes, are matters
which naturally are widely discussed
at Washington. Fears have arisen
in the minds of public men. who
have hitherto advocated the policy ot
assigning lands In severalty to the
Indians, thereby making them citi
zens with the right to vote, as is now
the law, as to whether this course

It remains to be seen whether the
resolution presented by Mr. Dwkery,
of Missouri, which hns been adopted,
to Investigate the alleged silver pool
operation, will reveal startling dis
closures of speculation in silver legis
lation by Representatives in Con
gress. The lact, however, is patent
that, when the law had been passed
increasing purchases of silver bullion
from two millions toour and a half
million ounces per month, silver ad
vanced largely in price, pools were
formed at Washington and doubtless
in other cities, to speculate in this
advance just as is commonly done in
6tock operations. That certain mem
bers and Senators did "chip in" this
pool is reasonably certain and it is
likewise quite as certain, that when
the price of silver tumbled in the
market, some of these gentlemen
were badly 'squeezed." The House
cannot investigate theeonneciion of
Senators with this alleged pool, as
that would be beyond its jurisdic
tion. Nevertheless the Senators who
did speculate ii nd suffer, are uneasy
lest their connection with these oper
ations may accidentally leak out.
While it may be that various mem
bers did thus speculate in silver, the
question whether in so doing they
"speculated in legislation" is an open
one concerning which much can be
said on both bides.
Although debate in the Senate has
been revived on the Force bill, and
the wearisome argument on this
measure has been renewed, the opin
ion is general that the bill is practi
cally defunct. Even should the pro
moters of this proposition to inter
pose federal interference in the mat
ters of State elections, manage to se
cure a majority vote in the Senate,
there is not one chance in a million.
that the amended measure can be
reached and aequiesed in bv the
House. Naturally, the administra
tion is using us Dtst etiorts to secure
the passage of some sort of elections
bill by the present Republican Con
gress, so that it may redound to Re
publican advantage at the Presiden
tiai election ot isu. unless this can
be accomplished the chances of
Republican success in 18D2 amount to
nothing, since the pronounced
Democratic majority in the next
House will interpose a barrier against
the Republican schemes to control
elections by the federal power

ity in both House and Senate are on

if it shall involve an extra session of

subject, in which he expresses disap
provalofthe policy which restrains
the personal liberty of the Indian
while placing, or seeking to place
him on an equality with the white
man in respect to citizenship. All
these things lead to the conclusion
that, instead of the Indian problem
being solved, it remains as for from
settled as ever.
An army officer of high rank and
considerable experience in Indian
warfare, stated to your correspondent
that, while Gen. Miles had brought
the hostile Sioux to . terms and an
apparent peace had been consumma
ted, he nevertheless entertained
grave apprehensions that sometime
in the latter part of May or first of
June when the grass had sprouted
and their ponies could subsist, these
Indians were likely to break loose,
resume hostilities and raid the set
tlements, in which case great loss of
life and property would ensue. This
officer had no confidence in the good
faith of the surrender of their arms.
He admitted, however, that these
Indians had not been dealt with fair
ly and honestly, that they had griev
anees to which tho white citizen
would hardly submit, and he believ
ed in tho policy of keeping faith
with them in all treaty obligations

One of the most horrible tragedies
ever chronicled in this State was
enacted at Chattanooga last Sunday
afternoon. Simpson M. Fugette,cash-
ler of the South Chattanooga Savings
Bank was shot and killed by his
father-in-law, Judge Jas. A. Warder,
who is City Attorney of Chattanooga.
Fugette also shot Warder in two
places,and in the melee Mrs. Fugette,
daughter ot Warder, received a pis
tol wound in' the thigh, whether
from the band of her husband or
father is not known, and probably
never will be. The tragedy occurred
at the residence of Judge Warder,
which was also occupied by Mr. Fu
gette. The cause of the horrible
crime can be explained in one brief
sentence Warder was insanely

whom he was quite popular. He

The following is from Associated
press dispatches of the occurrence
sent out from Chattanooga on Sun
From evidence before the Coroner's
jury it appears that Judge Warder
frequently came home drunk, and
abused his wife and daughter, and,
the women would appeal for protec
tion to Mr. Fugette. Such a trouble
occurred last Saturday night, and Mr.
Fugette quieted his father-in-law.
Mr. and Mrs. Fugette have been
married but two years, have lived
happily together and have a five
months old baby. Mr. Fugette was
a young man of about GO years of age,
and a successful business man. Mrs.
Fugette is a very handsome woman.
