Oilier Interests Want to He Heard.
ICcprinetitative Dutturworth's bill to
tax dealers in options nud futures on ag
ricultural prod u. is seems to have at lost
stirred up those it is aimed at. This is
somewhat singular, as the measure lias
been widely advertised ever sinos it in
troduction, uud freely discussed, both in
tlie public press and in the house com
mittee on ngriciilturo; but for some rea
son, ts)ihars indiirerence or a Iwlief that
nothing would come of it, none of the
dealurs In I mures or options made any
effort to lie heard on the subject whilu
the bill was twiiding in committee). It
has be n favorably ruiorted and ts now
on t)u house calendar awaiting its turn
It has to all mil poses been passed out
of the hands of the ootnmittoo to which
It was referred, yet at tins late day a re-
Suest Is received from the uicmlient of
le produce and cotton exohauges in New
York, and from the cotton exchange h.
New Orleans for a hearing. Chairman
lunaton will nf course grant tho bearing
asked for, but it will do the delegations
and tho exchange no good so far aa the
commltt. is concerned. The Utitter-
worth bill has paused through the Initial
Stagi of legislation, where amendment
or argument would have been much
easier than it will now be in the house.
In reaMinHe to the reiuipata for hearings,
the committee on agriculture will hold a
special session on Kriday next, but the
chairman doc not ses that it will acoom
dish anything, except, perhaps, to gut
the other side of ths question before the
country in some shape.
Mr. Funston, speaking of the antl-op-tkra
bill, sold ho considered it a very lm-
Krtant measure, and every member of
l oonimittoe expected to so it pass.
"There Is no bunoome In it, as some
people think," said he, "it means busl
ceas.n "Nptoulatlon," he continued,
"never 'nakes high prlrpe unloss where
there ls't coruor, and then such prices
do not heneflt producers. The Hotter
worth bill ifill be called up first of all
