O'clock p. m.
The city council will hold a regular meet
ing this eveniug. and the most important
matter to be brought up will be the passage
of the liquor ordinance. From conversa
tions with members of the committee on li
cense, the opinion is deduced that the ordi
nance, in its stringent clauses, will be ma
terially amended, until, in fact, it becomes a
reasonable instrument. If passed as report
ed, it would impose an undue hardship upon
the people licensed, and it is gratifying to
note tbe disposition of the council to be gov
erned by good sense and discretion.

Last evening the fire department received
an alarm which brought them near Western
avenue bridge where they discovered that the
double two story building between Twelfth
street and the bridge had caved iv, with the
exception of the frout part which is yet stand

winter by the Tracy Brothers for Johnson &
Hinckand Silas Moffitt, who were soon going
to open them for grocery business. The
center wall gave way aud three-fourths of
the double building fell with a crash on a
rear lot owned by Mrs. Quinn whose
daughter, Mrs. Walters, was slightly hurt
about the face and neck by the falling debris.
A little child, the son of Peter Quinn, who
was standing under a tree at the rear of the
falling building had a miraculous escape
from instant death. He was buried
under three feet of brick and mortar and

The Post says, the government have de

The Pall Mall Gazette expresses a belief
that the government will not relieve Berber

The Gazette urges the despatch of reinforce

withdrawal from the country, as any other
course would be madness. The transports
after bringing the English troops home
might restore the entente cordiale by convey

Senator W rilson addressed tho senate on
his joint resolution recently submitted, and
severai bills already introduced relating to
inter-state commerce. He said, that while
our material resources had been rapidly ad
vancing, our science law making had not
kept pace with our necessities. He
had not been able to fit our
laws to new conditions, hence the.
painfully felt the jolt and friction of our on-"
ward movement. He was not unmindful of
the great difficulties surrounding the ques
tion, but it was not exceptional in that re
spect. Every element of our extraordinary
progress had involved great difficulties, but
that fact only made more imperative the
necessity of giving the subject prompt and
intelligent attention. A conviction had
grown up in the country that the time had
come for the national government to exer
cise its uudoubted power to regulate inter
state commerce. This was not to be done
in any revengeful spirit as public laws were
not the repositories f»r resentment. He
would not enter into a discussion of the
question of the right of congress to regulate
such commerce that had been specifically
"nominated In the bond" of the constitution.
He reviewed the history of railroad growth lv
the United States, and continuing, said,
for many of the complications resulting that
the growth of the National and State govern
ment were largely responsible. They little
thought, how the free servant may in time,
become the master, and so they refrained
from hampering and restraining railroads.
When newspapers, or forces in civilisation
first appeared, they were allowed latitude.
It had not been suspected that tho powers
given and the grants made to railroad com
panys would lead to the results that followed.
They were regarded as agencies to build up
cities, unfold riches, aud promote the gener
al welfare. There has been a failure to duly
consider the checks and balances necessary
to keep a railroad in harmony with the many
delicate interests it affected. Experience
has been needed to show the hopeful effects
of its unregulated management. Now,
the demand of the people from all parts of
the country was that railroads be put under
control. Experience has shown it to be ne
cessary. It was not merely the qnestion of
land grunt forfeitures. It was more than
that. If every unearned land grant were at
once declared forfeited, there would remain
the great commercial question. It was un
fortunate the attorney general had not long
since been directed by congress to take legul
steps to recover all unearned land grants,
because delay in the courts would not endan
ger the right of the people, while delay in
congress does so. The commencement of
the uction in the court was a notice to every
body, a discussion in eomrress was a notice
to nobody. He didn't know that it would
not even now be the best course
for congress to pursuo, to have all
of these land grant controversies
sent to the courts. This would still leave for
congress the great commercial question in
volved. Railroads had denied the right of
congress to regulate them. The fact that the
railroad iutorest has become so strong as to
make this denial squarely was the strongest
symptom that could be presented necessarily
for regulation. Not only was* government
regulation necessary in the interests of the
people, but it was equally necessary In the
Interests of the railroad themselves. The ab
sence of all good faith in the observations of
their mutual agreements had become prover
bial. It was a matter of common scandal.
Pool after pool was formed, only to be disre
garded. The leading railroad men, while
loudly objecting to government legislation
concerning their affairs, were compelled to
confess the failure of their own legis
lative efforts; for what were the meetings
of the general railroad agents and pool man
agers, but meetings for legislation. Indeed,
railroad magnates had come to be so great
that they did not hesitate to exercise powers
that by the constitution were forbidden to
Senator Wilson characterized as monstrous
and intolerable the discriminations by rail
road companies not only against places but
against different people doing busiuess in
the same place. It could not, he said, be
left to any railroad company to say how or to
whom business should be distributed in this
country. Every man should have and equal
chance and not be discriminated against.
People have become exasperated at these
discriminations, and their complaints could
not be brushed aside by the plausable figures
showing a reduction of average rates. The
argument of average rates, was no answer to
the outrageous discrimination, or to the
capricious and unstable conditions of busi
ness. If railroad managers had been able
to show they had treated all their shippers
alike they would have made a much better
case. The joint resolution was referred to
the committe ou railroads.
The pleuro pueumouia bill was then takeu
up, and Senator Plumb said, on Mouday he
would ask the senate to come to a vote on
the bill. Adjourned until Monday.
Just before adjournment a message was
received from the house announcing non
concurrence in the senate amendments on
the postofflce appropriation bill. The senate
insisted on its amendments, and the chair
appointed Senators Plumb. Allison and
Beck a committee to confer with a like com
mittee on the part of the house.
Another message was announced, that the
house agreed to the report of the conference
committee on the differences in relation to
the special deficiency appropriation bill. The
senate also agreed. The chair announced as
a committee of conference on the part of the
senate, regarding the disagreeing votes >f

the whole, Mr. Cox, of New York, in the
chair on priyate calendar.
Up to 3:30, the time of the committee was
consumed in the consideration of the bill for
the relief of Major Clark Gains, at that hour
the committee rose to enable Mr. Randall to
submit a conference report on the little de.
flcien 2y bill. He explained the main point
between the two houses was, as to the senate
amendment striking out the clause prohibit
ing volunteer service on any departments in
advance of the appropriations. The con
ference committee had agreed upon a com
promise, retaining the prohibition, but ex
cepting from its provisions cases of emer
gency, involving life and property. The re
port was agreed to.
The committee of the whole re
sumed its session. After further
discussion, the Games bill was
laid aside with a fovorable recom

patents for so much of the 38,45 V acres
claimed by Myra Games, as not beiug dis
posed of by the United States,and provides that
she shall be paid at the rate of $1.25 per

[Special Telegram to the Globe.!
Washington, April 25. —"What do you
think of the prospects of your bill in regard
to the silver dollar certificates!" your corres
pondent asked of Mr. Bland, of Missouri,
chairman of the committee on coinage,
weights and measures, yesterday.
''Oh, I think we shall pass it," he answer
ed. "There is a very strong feeling in its
favor in the house, and I have no doubt of
'•You think that it would pass by a two
thirds vote then?"
"Yes," he answered, "I do. It is gener
ally conceded that we need more small bills
in the currency, and I think there will be
little opposition to the measure. There has
been a great demand for small bills of late,
"The bill as agreed upon in your commun
ication provides for the issue of $1 aud £2
certificates, does it not, Mr. Bland I"
"Yes, and $5 certificates, too."
"But does it not withdraw about as many
of the $1 and $2 greenbacks as it issues
"Well, it withdraws indirectly a certain
number of the treasury notes, not as many
perhaps as it issues silver certificates, but it
simply stops the further issue of the $1 and
aud $2 greenbacks, while it issues a large
number of certificates."
"What is the advantage, Mr. Bland, in
the silver certificates over the greenbacks."
"Well," he answered, with a laugh, "the
advantage is simply this, that every dollar of
the silver certificates in circulation is backed
by a silver dollar in the vaults of the treas
ury, while the greenback is backed by noth
ing except the faith of the government. Be
sides it puts the silver practically into circu
lation, though it does not in the meantime
burden people's pockets with the article it
self. You cannot make the people take the
silver in any great quantities, aud this means
of issuing it iv the form of paper is the best
that can be devised."
"And you expect to see the bill pass this
