Thero is no exaltation among tho
silver men in Congress ovor the re
porting of a bill for the free coinage of
silver to the Senate as a substitute for
tho House bond bill. This may be
because it was well known from the
first that such action would be taken,
or it may bo because of the general
knowloilgo that the substitute cannot
possibly becorap a law; at any rate, It
is true. It will pass tho Senato by a
decisive majoiity, notwithstanding the
.shrewd move of Senator Chandler, who
has posed as a special friend of silver,
in introducing a bill providing for a
popular loan by tho sale of interest
bearing postal notes at all money or
der postofDcos, which he has given
notice of his intention to offer as a
substitute for tho free coinage bill
But there are silver men who regaid it
as a mere waste of time to put the
bill through the Senate. They s.iy
that Speaker Reed would not give the
bill a chance to get through the House,
even if two thirds of that body wanted
to vote for it, and, of cour.ie. all the
world knows that President Cleveland
would take especial pleasurn invctoint.

Tho sessions of tho House this week
have been my shoit, most of the work
done being in committee looms.
A member of the Houso committee
on Territories said th's week: "No
ono can tell at this time what will be
dono by Congress, but in my opinion
that enabling acts will bo passed at
this session authorizing statehood for
New Mexico. Arizona and Oklahoma,
and that Indian Territory will be
placed under a regular ten itorial form
of govornraent. My opinion is based
upon tho.jp expressed by other members
of the House."
In a speech strongly- attacking the
Supreme Court decision against (tho
income tax, which he declared was a
"matter of surprise to cveiy intelligent
lawyor in tho country, and especially
t.o thoso of us in Congress, who wero
engaged in formulating the legislation,"
Senator Vest used some strong lan
guage against tho domination of the
gold kings, and in favor of tho freo
coinago of silver. He ridiculed the
idea that thoio is enough gold outside
of what is held by the banks to take up
tho S100,000,000 bond issue which
has been advertised by Secretary Cur
lisle, and concluded by saying: 'The
conflict is irrepressible. If we are to
have the gold standard and the domi
nation of tho national banks, go to the
peoplo and havo thnm rivet the chains.
But 1 believe tho people will respond
against .wiping out one-half of tho
money of tho world, and in favor of
ati iking down tho financial despotism
that is upon us."
According to Senator Mills, of Texas,
tho republicans adopted the democratic
idea of p tariff for levenue only, when
they put the tariff bill thtough the
House that is now in the Senate, but
neither Mr Mills, nor any other dem
ocratic senator, has announced his in
tention to vote for the biil. If it tep
lesents democratic ideas, the demo
crats are not suppoiting
with any degiee of unanimity, a I-
though it is expected that several dem-
ocratio' senators will vote for the bill,
' now that the republicans have decide' I
not to amend it, but Mr. Mill's isn't one
Several repieseutatives of free Cuba
aie here trying to get the belligerency
of the revolutionists recognized by this
government. They have documentary
evidence in plenty showing tho stiength
of tho Cubans, and tho little news that
has come from Cuba this week has
been greatly in their favor, but they are
nut m .king the progress they expected.
They get all tho individual assurances
of sympathy they want, but officially
the administration and Congress" aro
dumb on tho subject. It is now cor
tain that unless tho Cubans force
things sooner by driving the Spaniards
out of Havana, tho administration isn't
going to recognize them, unless directed
by a joint Congressional resolution to
do so. Thero is no doubt that such a
resolution would be adopted with n
whirl if a chance was given, but
Speaker Reed has positively declined
to recognize anybody to offer any
such resolution, unless it comes as a
report from the committee on Foreign
Affairs. Thero are some very ugly
tumors floating around Washington, to
tho effect that a poweifui lobby well
supplied with Spanish gold is working
on members of tho administration and
of Congress to pi event recognition of
the Cubans 03 long as possible, in order
to give tho Spiniards more timo in
which to tiy to put down tho revolt.
It wouldn't be the first time Spanish
money had been spent in Washington
to influence official opinions.

Itoturu or Prof. McUeo From a Visit

Piof. W. J. McGee, chief of Iho bu

Institution of Washington, accom
panied by Mike Rice, returned last
uvtMilijg from his expedition to the
riburon Island. Prof. McGeo pro

Mr. Rico was tolqgiaphed at Miuas
Priciitas to join the party, but the dis
patch failed to reach him iu timo to
join the expedition. Tho party after
cousideiable difficulty succeeded iu
lauding on tho islaud, but failed to
meet tho Scris Indians, as they
avoided iutercoiuso with tho party.
Rumors reached Hermosillo that the
party met with disaster, and Rice and
L. K. Thompson of Hermosillo, as
sisted by ex-Governor Rafael Yzabal

or falsity of tho reports. They met

Tho expedition was to Prof. McGeo
somewhat of a disappointment in
failing to meet the Iudiaus, but they
havo secured a fund of valuable in
formation as to the tribe, the resources
of the island and they obtained many
valuable specimens of natural history.
jPruf. McGee left tho main party iu
charge of Mr. Johnson to obtain typo
graphy of tho country between the
gulf and Quijoloa, which will occupy
them for several weeks. Rice and J.
P. Gabriel intend to fit out a new out
fit to prospect and explore tho islaud
for mineral the coming winter. They
will havo tho assistance of the Mexi
can officials and tho data of the
United states expedition tu assist them.
The real facts of tho killing of Robin
son and Logan has been asceita ned by
Prof. McGee. They had beeu tho
victims of negligence ou their own
part aud too much confidence; iu the
pacitie protests of tho Indians. Prof.
McGee asserts that a half dozen well
equipped men can go on the island
with perfect safety and remain as loug
as necessary to get a thorough knowl
edge of the resources of tho island.
Thero is wood, water and (pass iu
abundance also good fishing and all
that is necessary for protection is

A Motion to Consolidate Proceed
injjs to lie Decided In Phoenix.
When the Santa Fo railroad was
sold and purchased by the old bond
holders, Aldace F. Walker and J. C.
McCook, who were receivers of tho
road, as well as of the Atlantic &
Pacific, completed their duties in con
nection with the former company, and
at the same time tendered their resig
nations as receivers of the latter road.
The application for the appointment
"of a receiver has been before the court
at Albuquerque for several days, and
was jesterday dually determined by
the appointment of Charles W. Smith,
formerly manager of the Santa Fe
road. The appointment was satisfac
tory to all parties at interest, except
tho Mercantile Trust Company, of New
York, representing the first mortgage
bonds of tho compauy.
Suits have been instituted here
agaiust tho company, by both the
Mercantile Trust Company and tho
Uuited States Trust Company, bwth
of New York, and holders, respect
ively, of the first and second mortgage
bonds, for a foreclosure of tho mort
gage and sale of the road, . and a
motion was made to-day before Judge
Hawkins to have theso proceedings
consolidated into one suit.
Quite a formidable array of legal
talent is employed in tho case. The
Mei can tile Trust Company is repre
sented by William W. Green, of the
firm of Alexander & Green, of New
Yoik, and by W. B. Chllders of Albu
querque; the United States Trust
Company is represented by Neil B.
Feild, of Albuquerquo, and J. C. Hern
don, of Prescott. The Atlantic &
Pacific Railroad Company's interests
aro being looked aftor by T. W.
Johnston and R. E. Sloan, of Prescott.
The question of the appointment of
a receiver may also bo taken up by tho
court, as it was iu tho case of tho
original appointments, although some
of the attorneys coutend that the ap
pointment of Mr. Smith, in Albuquer
