Washington-, Feb. 8. There was a de
bate in the house yesterday on the everlast
Ing and ever-interesting subject of appro
priations and revenues, in which Dinirjey
and Dockery took part. Dockery said that
the appropriations made at this session
would aggregate 1,000,000. As there
were 7,000,000 at the last session the
total appropriations made by this congress
would reach $1,038,000,000. against 1S.0O0,
000 made by the Fifty-first congress an
increase of $50,000,000. The actual current
expen ditures paid by taxation for the fiscal
Wars lu and l-SSr. covered by the lat
longress, were $T),000,000. The aetii;U
expenditures for 1S!3 and lssM covered by
the present congrr ss would probably nvu h
st least tTHOirtO.OOO
Fieorrs Out a Trflrit.
The revenues for the present fiscal year
would reach at leat JHSG.&OO.OoO, probably
(:nm IJ.OiHUKO to v4,0O,),O00 more; and the
expenditures 40M.tKiO.000. If there should
be no tariff legislation to disturb, the reve
enue for the fiscal year 18SH wouhl un
doubtedly reach 440OO0.OOO. and the ex
penditures t Lou Id not exceed $390,000,000,
and would not it the rivei aud harbor ex
penditures thould not exceed $15.(xi0,000.
which was I'2,(i00,0uu more than was ever
expended. It they should go up to loil,
Ouo.000 as contemplated by the action of
the house there would inevitably be i de
ficiency next year, even with a revenue of
1-fleet ol Tariff Legislation,
The tariff legislation foreshadowed would
undoubtedly diminish the revenue, unless
the duties should he made low enough to
enormously swell importations. The
woolen bill passed by the hou at ths last
session would surrender $9,500,000 revenue
on wool and $19,5"0,000 ou manufactures
of wool, on the basis of the importations of
the last calendar year;and it would require
an enormous increase of importations of
woolen goods to make good the loss.
Dockery Criticises Foster.
In response to Dingley Dockery criticised
the report of the secretary of the treasury
relative to the condition of the treasury.
The income of the government from March
1, 1SS9, to March 1, lKtt, would be about
$158,858,659 in excess of the income of the
preceding four years while the expendi
tures for the same period would be about
$301,308,000 greater than they were undr
President Cleveland, r The probable appro
priations for the pre"n session of congress
might be fairly stated to be $531.8,Vi'i"'
lpenriiturri for Pension.
The estimated deficiency on account of
the pensions (included in this estimate)
would probably be found inadequate to
meet the den.auds of the pension bureau
the expenditures for the first half of this
fiscal year having been $),4-J3,0ti0, which
would indicate a total expenditure for the
fiscAl year of about $1(6.000.000, or about
$5,000, 000 more than was estimat ed by the
secretary of the treasury. He (Dockery)
estimated a probable deficiency Jnne 30,
1894, of f lb.Wti.SOO. The estimated de
ficiency wn.s baed on appropriations aud
revenues; but the actual expenditures for
that fiscal year were likely to reach the
limit of liabilities that was to say, $.t'S,
Expenses Must Re Reduced.
This was entiiely exclusive of the $5,000,
000 proluible inadequacy of the deficiency
estimate which had been submitted for the
current fiscal year. Indeed this estimate
was much more likely to be within the
limits o' actual expenditures than in excess
of the expenditures, taking the statement
made by t he secretary. The conclusion was
irresistible that public eSpeudit tires must
le materially reduced, taxation increased,
or a new issue of Ixmds made to meet im
SOME TALK IN THE SENATE,
lers toe uiifmate commerce commission
would fix upun that as the one to be used.
The railway companies insisted that they
were doing their best, but not one-third of
the cars were yet supplied witn automatic
couplers, and the toss of life among em
ployes in eight years was equal to the
whole number employed in one year.
Railways Are Run for Revenue.
Vilas asked Cullom whether he knew of
any instance where a .atlrotul company
deferred paying; dividends in order to adopt
means to protect the lives of its employes.
Cullom knew no instance of this kind.
The trouble was that railroad companies
were looking more to finances than to the
protection of the lives and limbs of their
No ITse for Such Legislation.
Hunton was not able to give his assent
to the bill. He believed that men who had
devoted their lives to the building and
management of railroads would conduct
their business better than it could be con
ducts by congress, by the interstate com
merce .ommission or by the national con
tention of each of the two great parties.
He quoted Gorman as saying that it would
cost the railroad compauies of the country
$."0,0!,0u0 to comply with the require
ments of the bill. Harris add. d to this
$50,(KM,(KH)to $l0,OcX),O(!0 for brakes, Gor
man's estimate only applying to couplers.

A FAVOR TO THE CZAR.
Turpie Opposes the Same in the
Russian Fxtradition Treaty.
Washington, Feb. 8. A resolution rela
tive to the right of asylum in this country
from pursuit for political offences was in
troduced in the senate by Turpie yesterday.
It was the echo of a protest he made in the
senate executive session when the Russian
extradition treaty, which was subsequent
ly ratified, was under discussion. The ex
ecutive session adopted an amendment
making extraditable any one who made
an attempt on the life of the czar, no mat
tar what motive, which was carried by
more than two-thirds majority.
In Favor of Cnllmited Asylum.
Turpie was one of the most vigorous op
ponents of this amendment. He cham
pioned the doctrine of unlimited asylum
hen the offense could be called political,
and his resolution in the senate yesterday
as inteuded as an offset to the terms of
the treaty. This action he seeks to annul
by the passage of this resolution, which de
clares it to be the sense of the senate that
urisdiction :n what are known ns political
ffenses ong.it not be extra-territorial, and
that no treaty should be npproved which
proposes to take from the courts of the
United States the right to determine
whether or not an offense is political under
the law of nations. This resolution was
ordered to lie on the table.

Chandler Wants to Knnir About the Dem
In the senate jesterday Chandler easily
gave a political twist to the debate on the
automatic coupler Dili, lie Drought up a
resolution in the national Democratic plat
form which denounced the Republican
party and the Republican senate for not
having provided legislation lor the pro
tection of railroad employes and insisted
that the position of so many Democratic
senators against the bill was lneonsestant
ith their party fealty. He twitted them
with the fact that only eleven of them had
voted Monday to take np the bill for the
repeal of the Sherman act,' knowing the
declaration of the national Democratic
convention on the subject of silver, and
knowing the entreaties of the president
elect to have the Sherman act repealed be
fore March 4. He predicted that the course
of Democratic senators at the next con
tress on the subject of tariff would be
equally at variance with their party plat
HFslcott Criticises Chandler.
Wolcott came to the defense of the De
mocracy. He opposed the bill, but re
marked that the senator from New Hamp
shire was the only man in the senate who
could find a political argument in tha
bill. He (Wolcott) was in favor of going
to the extreuii limit of right in respect to
the prection of railroad employes. But
be was unwilling to proceed, blindly and
foolishly, to legislation which would an
swer nfr good and useful purpose simply
because that legislation was aimed at cor
poratitns, and because he might thereby
earn same cheap applause from people who.
havinj nothing, desired that the rest of
the world should have nothing.
Talk About the Couplers.
During the debate Cullom said that there
were 1,100.000 freight cars in the country
lhat there were forty different patterns of
automatic coupler, in use altogether, and
U the owners of 50 per cent, of tha freight

Washington, Feb. 8. The advocates in

Washington. Feb. 6 The Hawaiian an

Smith, the Hawaiian minister, had another
interview yesterday with Secretary Foster
at the state department. As was the case
with the two previous interviews this was

ject of annexing the Hawaiian islands to
