Washixqtox, Dec S4. The house Re
publicans will introduce on the day after
Christmas and pass within the week two
bills in response to President Cleveland's
message of appeal for help for the treas
ury. One ot these two will be a tariff bill
to increase the rcrcnuo, the other a finan
cial plan to maintain the gold reserve and
prevent alleged existing trouble with the
greenbacks. The plan has been perfected
by two meetings of the Republican mem
bers of the ways and means committee,
the first held Saturday night with the co
operation of Speaker Rood and othor
leaders, the second yesterday afternoon.
Although strong efforts were made to
pros rv6 socrecy concerning the details of
the plan Its features have been obtained
by the Associated Press from unquestion
8yaopla of the Tariff BilL
The tariff bill wi'd bo entitled "A bill to
increase the revenues and to prevent de
ficits in the treasury," and will go into
effect when signed by the president, if ho
birds it, and remain in effect until Aug. 1,
ltm, wnen by Its provisions its operation
will cease. Its items 'follow: A duty on
wool of 60 par cent, of tho McKinley law
rates. A compensatory duty on woolen
goods of CO per cent, of the McKinley law
rates. A duty ot 60 per cent, of the rate
of 1SU0 on lumber, which will be from 10
to 15 per cent, ad valorem. An increase
of 23 per cent, from the Wilson-Gorman
act rates on cereal breadstuff, dairy pro
ducts, and live stock, including poultry.
A horizontal increase ot 15 per cent, from
the Wilson-Gorman rates on all other
schedules, with the provision that in no
esse shall the duty exceed tho McKinley
rates except where tho Wilson-Gorman
rates exceed those of tho McKinley law.
Bill for the Iasae of Bonds.
Tho second bill will provide for two
Issues of boml. The first will be an un
limited amout of 3 per cent., five-year
com bonus to protect tho eold reserve.
with the provision that tho currency re
deemed by the proceeds shall not be paid
out for current deficits in the revenues
unless the expenses of the government are
In excess ot the revenues (which it is ex
pected they will not be if tho first bill is
in operation). In addition, the second
bill will provide for one year, 3 per cent,
treasury certificates of indebtedness, not
to exceed 0,OUO,0UO in amount, and to be
disposed of at tho discretion of the secre
tary of the treasury to meet current de
ficits in the revenue. Ihese are to be of
fered for sale at tho sub-treasuries and de
positories of tho government.
Silver Meat Ag-alnst the Bonda.
It Is possiblo'also that there m.-.v be
added to this bill a plan to increase the
enrrency by authorizing national banks
to issue circulation to the par value of all
tho government bonds deposited by them
with tho government as security for their
notes. The plan outlined above was not
agreed upon witiiout much reconciliation
of differences and compromises, but the
leaders are assured that both bills will
pass the house without material opposi
tion, having mndo a thorough canvass by
state delegations, and there are strong
hopes that the senate will act upon them
favorably. There will bo Republican free
silver votes against the bond bill, which
will be made up for by Democratic "sound
money" votes, so it is expected.
Have Hopes or the Senate.
By tho samo division tho house Repub
licans holdsomo hopes that tholr plan can
carry in the senate, mustering all of the
Republican and two Populist votes for the
tariff bill, and a combination of Repub
licans and Democrats for the bond bill,
although the supposed free silver ma
jority of the senate makes the success of
tho second bill much more doubtful.
There have been conferences of Repub
licans from both houses preliminary to
the present plan, so that it is not alto
gether tho product of Speaker Reed.
Among the rank and filo of bouse Repub
licans there is a movement to hold a cau
cus Thursday morning to pass opon the
bills, but the leaders look upon the cau
cus with distrust for fear combinations
may bo formed to change the tariff fea
tures and that woidd lead to much delay.
UNITED AO.UNST THE TARIFF BILL.
nemocrate Vil, to a Man, Say -No" On
Bonds They IMnTer.
Washington, Doc. 24. The Democrats
of the house will oppose unanimously, so
far as can be ascertained, tho Republican
revenue bilL Both the silver and anti
silver Democrats assert that there is no
necessity for an increase in the revenues,
as they claim that the available cash In
the treasury over and above tho gold re
serve is amply sufficient to meet any de
ficiencies that may occur for the next two
years, when they expect the receipts from
the present tariff law to equal or exceed
the expenditures. Up to this point the
Democrats seom to agree. As to an auth
orization for "coin" bonils, they differ.
The gold men would be willing to vote for
bonds, preferably gold bonds, to fortify
the reserve, but they point out that in
their opinion no bond bill will meet the
The trouble they declare to be the ex
istence of t he greenbacks, which can bo
used to pump gold out of the treasury,
and unless their redemption and retire
ment is provided for the gold purchased
with boil da wonld simply be piled up to
be drawn ont again, and the only prac
tical effect would be to increase the Interest-bearing
debt without removing the
active agent for weakening the reserve.
It la not improbable that some of the
Democrats will offer as a substitute a com
prehensive plan for the retirement of the
frrcenbacks, including an authorization
for an Issue of f500,0u0,UU0 in bonds for
that purpose; the reduction of the tax on
national bank circulation, and the cur
rency to be issued on deposits of bonds to
be increased from 90 to luO per cent. This
latter, they say, would increase the na-
t:na banking system and prevent a eon
traction ot the currency.
The silver Democrats, of coarse, are op
posed to bonds to increase the gold re
serve, and will resist the measure reported
tj the Kepur'lcane both oa that and tar.
iff ryounda. The silver Democrats of the
hotsse. after diacussina- the aitasaatha
about decided to Offer aa ad amendment
or substitute forth, bills a joint resolu
tion making it mandatory on the secre
tary of the treasury to redeem greenbacks
and treasury notes in silver when the old
reserve falls below a certain point. Bailey
of Texas will probably offer the resolution.

Proposition for a Congress of Americana Te
Be Held at Washington.
Washington, Dec. 24. Beach of Ohio
has introduced a bill authorizing the pres
ident of the United States to call an in
ternational conference, inviting the gov
ernments of the other American republics
to appoint plenipotentiaries with full pow
ers to meet in conference in the city of
Washington within one year from the ap
proval of tho act, for the formal accept
ance and declaration of tho Monroe doc
trine as a principlo of international law.
Aow that congress has acted upon the
president's suggestions in authorizing the
appointment of the Venezuelan commis
sion to locate the boundary lino between
British Cuinna and euezuela, and the
subject Is again one for executive treat
ment, it is bciiuved that Secretary Olriey
will formally acknowledge the receipt of
Lord Salisbury s two notes and perhaps
take occasion as a matter of courtesy for
mally to advise the British government of
the course which this government intends
to pursue, supplementing it perhaps by a
request to bo put in possession of evidence
within tho control of tho British foreign
office respecting the boundary line.
