The Labor Strike Arbitration.
Two important changes in the bill for na
tional arbitration of strikes have been mndo
as a result of conferences between Labor
Commissioner Wright nnd Representatives
McGann, Springer, and Lrdmau. Thev arc:
Frst, that laoor unions bo chartered by the
government; second, that the charter of a
labor union be forfeited when its members
resort to violence in the conduct of n strike.
It is probable that the measure as thus
Hmended will bo the. form it takes in tlio dis
cussion before Congress. Commissioners
Wright and Kornan. who made the recent in
vestigation of the Pullman strike, will appear
before the Labor Committee on Tucsdny to
state their views on perfecting the bill.
Immediate ccd for a Bankruptcy Law.
The bankruptcy bill, which the Democratic
caucus of the Senate has indicated a will
ingness to consider at the present session, is
by no means the same measure as that which
passed the House. It carries the title of the
IIouso bill, but retains only the first two sec
tions of that measure, and oven these are
amended. The friends of the bill nro inclined
to urge that the steering committee shall
give it preference over other measures se
lected for consideration by the caucus. They
say that a bankruptcy bill is one of the urgent
demands of the time.

When They Hear That the House Is
at Work in Dcail Earnest.
PINASCE LEGISLATION BARRED
0 . 0. P. Senators Don't Proposo to Lot Any
each Moasnrei Pass tho Senate This Sos
sion They Will Talk It to Death
Springer and His Colloaguo3 Going Ahead.
Much interest was folt at tho Capitol yes
terday in tho prospects as to tho flnaucial
hearings which are to begin boforo tho Com
mittee on Banking and Currency. Tho
propositions offered by Secretary Carlisle and
tho President wero tho subject of much dis
cussion. Tho llopublicnn Senators nro inclined to
smile when they hear that tho members of tho
IIouso aro setting to work in real h nrd earn
est to try to accomplish something on this
line. Ask them privately about it, and
they will say that they don't intend to lot
any legislation of this kind pass tho Souato
at this session. It is so easy to kill a meas
ure of this sort by talking it to death, that
they look upon tho gravo propositions for
action on it in tho IIouso with a feeliug of
amusement.
Nevertheless, Mr. Springor and his col
leagues aro going to work with a will and
propose, if thero is any failuro of legislation,
that the responsibility shall bo placed wbere
it belongs. Chairrana Springor is not confin
ing his invitations to Eastern financiers nenr
at hand. He has sent to Chicago, St. Louis,
Cincinnati, as representative We3torn cities,
and to Nashville, Tenn., and other Southern
cities. Care is also being taken to avoid pol
itician financiers nnd to sccuro only thoso
recognized as authorities in practical finan
ciering such men as Lyman J. Gage, of
Chicago, who is among thoso invited.
Tho hearing of Secretary Carlisle and
Comptroller Eo-iles on Monday is attracting
much attention and thoro promises to bo such
a crowd present that tho largo room of tho
Ways and Means Committoo will be used. On
Tuesday ex-Comptroller of tho Currency
Hepburn nnd Mr. Hornco Whito, of Now
York, will have an opportunity to bo heard
on tho merits of the so-nnlled "Baltimore
plan." It is understood by tho committee
that Mr. Hepburn is tho original projector of
this plan.
Kopresontntivo McCreary yestorday pre
sented a bill for the appointment of a cur
rency commission. It is to bo composed of
three persons uppointed by tho president,
three Senators appointed by tho President of
the fcenate, and threo ItepresentatUes ap
pointed by the Speaker of tho House. This
commission is to sit in Washington and else
whero. It is to inquiro first into tho past and pres
ent condition of tho currency, the necessity
for increasing tho volume or changing bank
ing laws now in force. Second, on tho change
in the relative values of silver and gold, tho
causes of tho change, the effects thereof.
Third, as to tho best moans of maintaining In
ternational bimetallism and at what ratio.
Fourth, that tho report of the commission
shall bo made to tho President and by him
submitted to Congress prior to December 15,
1895.
POOLING IN THE HOUSE.
Champ Clark's Speech Consumed
tho
.Morning Senate Not in Session.
The pooling bill was tho chief subject under
direct discussion in tho House, but was pre
ceded by a brief talk on othor subjects.
Tho proceedings wore enlivened by a char
acteristic speech from Mr. Clark, of Missouri,
which abounded in personal allusions and
was generally of tho slodge-hammer variety.
It was mndc in connection with the bill to re
tire incapacitated officers of tho revenue cut
ter service, with tho avowed purpose of talk
ing the bill to death. He succeeded in con
suming tho morning hour and tho bill went
over. Tho remainder of the day was con
sumed in debato on tho railroad pooling bill.
Thoso who participated in the debato to-day
wero Messrs. Gear, of California; Dalzell, of
Pennsylvania; Grow, of Pennsylvania, and
Mahon, of Pennsylvania, all in favor of tlio
bill.
Mr. Blair, of New Hampshire, offered an
amendment to give Congress tho power at
any time to nullify pooling contracts.
Mr. Patterson served notico that he would
demand tho previous question on tho bill
next Tuesday at 3 o'clock, and then at 4:40
p. :n. tho House adjourned.
The Senato was not in session.
DISTRICT APPROPRIATIONS.
The Appropriation Sub-committee Con
tinues Its Sessions.
Tho 6ub-committeo of tho Appropriation
Committee, having charge of District affairs,
held another nil-day session yesterday in con
junction with the District Commissioners.
Thny called In rep.esentntives of the gns
and electric light companies nnd listened to
the differences between them and the Com
missioners on tho powor of gns for lighting
the city lamps. They insisted that it is im
Dossiblo to make further reductions in tho
prices at which light is furnished for tho
streets and alleys of the city.
Thore is an ovident determination on tho
part of tho Appropriation Committee to cut
down the estimates largely. They have noti
fied tho Commissioners that there must bo a
eduction in some wav. as thev aro unwilling
o let the bill run much, if nuy, higher than
at msi session.
DR. DAMON'S TREATMENT.
By It People Are Restored.
Vital Magnotism Cures When All Else
Fails.
Should any ono doubt tho really wonderful
cures now being wrought in our midst thoy
would only have to pay a visit to that great
est of all living Magnetic Specialists, Dr.
Damon, at fiOS Twelftii street northwest, and
listen to tho reports mado of remarkable
cures by tho people waiting to seo
him. Seated in tho largo parlors yes
torday wero -many who had come long "dis
tances to seo this famous men. Among
them wero ministers, merchants, nnd farmers"
Ono reverend ircntlemnn had coino from
Bhodo Island; ho told how a sister of his had
been cured, and how hof after trying over a
dozen physicians of his own town, as well as
in Providence, without any benefit, camo hero
and plnced himself under this treatment that
has mado for Dr. Damon a reputation for
skill that but fow enjoy. Ho said: "I am
now well, and return to-morrow to my
home." Another told of his wife being
cured of rheumatism. He had spent over
1,000 with other physicians without re
lief, but she had been cured perfectly in
less than five weeks. I am now under
treatment myself, said ho, for a serious
liver and kiduoy trouble that has baffled tho
skill of five other physicians. Already I feel
Ilko a new man, and I havo been treated less
than two weeks. Tho doctor is in dally con
sultation with pntionts from 10 to 12, 2 to 5,
and 7 to 8, whilo his associates are kept con
stantly at work. Dr. Dnmou has" every
facility at his offices for treatment. Tho
largo rer-cption and treatment-rooms nro well
fitted and furnished, both for tho convenience
of physician as well as patient.
If jou arc ill do not delay, but go at onco
and seo this reniarkablo man. He will tell
you candidly just what he can do, and if ho
considers your case hopeless ho will not tako
a cent of your money, but will give you
such advice and counsel as ho can freo of all
cost.
