THE VENEZUELAN COMMISSION

Washington, Doo. 83.?Now that
Congress has noted upon the President's
suggestion In tho appointment of the
Veni zuelaa commission It is believed
that Secretary Olney will formally
acknowledge the receipt of Lord Salis?
bury's two notes, this perhaps, as a mat?
ter ot courtesy to advise the British
goveromont of the course which this
Government Intends to pursue, supple?
menting it, perhaps, by a request for in?
formation from the British foreign
office respecting the boundary line.
Representative Beaah, of Ohio, to?

bill authorizing the President to call an

Ia official clrcleB there is tho great?
est reticence as to the plans for naming
the Venezuelan commission and the
subsequent organization of tbat body.
The Impression prevails, however, that
the personnel of the commission will be
made known at an early day.
Chief Justice Fuller was a caller at
the Stato Department to-day, which
gave rise to added comment as to the
probability ot his appointment; but this
is purely eoeouiatlvo, as the officials
will say nothing either in affirmation or
denial of current reports, or as to the
prospects ot appointment.
Tbe feeling is growing that tho talk
ot a ropori by next April was prema?
ture, as it is said that men of the stand?
ing of those who will be on this cam
mission would not conaent to rush
through a case- of this magnitude. Tbe
understanding is that tbe headquarters

Washington, Deo 23.?It being gen?
erally understood tbat tho way& ani
means committee will not be preparod
to report Lb bill for tho relief of tho
Treasury situation before to-morrow or
Thursday, tho attendance in tbo House
to-day waB comparatively small. Tbo
galleries, however, were woll filled.
Mr. Daniels (Rep., N. Y.) chairman of
the first committee on elections, offered
a resolution for the appointment of
clerks to the election committees and
authorizing the chairman to decide upon
the committees to which the election
cases sbould go.
Mr. Crisp (Gi ) thought that the mi?
nority should have some voice in de?
termining the committees to which the
cases should go. He referred indirectly
to a personal controversy on the floor
in tho last Congress between Mr. John?
son (Rep., Ind.), the chairman of one
of the election committees, and Mr.
Jones (Dem., Vs.), whose seat is being
contested la the present House, and
thought it might be unfair for Mr.
Johason to have a voice la determin?
ing to which committee tbo McDonald
Jones case shouid go.
Mr. Johnson promptly agreed with
Mr. Crisp, and It was deolded that the
Speaker should refer the cases under
the rule. Tbe chair accordingly refer?
red it to the first commltte on election,
the next case to the second, and the
remainder to the third committee.
Mr. Dlugley (Rep., Maine), chairman
of the ways and means committee, theo
took the floor, and made an announce?
ment regarding the situation. It was,
he said, apropos of a report on the reso?
lution of the holiday recess. The com?
mittee on wttjB and means, he said, had
held a meeting this morniog, and had
unanimously decided that, la view of
the Presidont's message to Congress on
Friday and tho surrounding circum?
stances, It was not possible that the two
Houses should adjourn until a proper
response had been made.
In view of the urgency of the matter,
he deemed it proper to say that the com?
mittee was already engaged upon tbe
preparation of a bill or bills. Wbile he
was not prepared to say now when those
bills would be ready he was certain that
they would not be presented to the
Houso before Thursday. It was import?

and Prevent Alleged Trouble With

Washington, Dao. 23.?The House
Republicans will introduce ou tho day
after Christmas and pasB within the
week: two bills in response to President
Cleveland's message ot appeal for help
for the Treasury. One ot these two
will be a tariff bill to increase the rev?
enue, the other a financial plan to
maintain tho gold rcBervo and prevent
alleged existing trouble with the
This party plan has been perfected by
two meetings ot the Republican mem?
bers of the ways and means committee;
the first w&s held Saturday night, with
the co operation of Speaker Heed and
otker laeders, the second this afternoon.
Although efforts wero made to preserve
seareey concerning tbe details of tho
plan, its foatures have baeu obtained by
tbe Associated Press from good au?
The tariff bill will be entitled, "A
bill to increase the revenues and to pre?
vent deficits in tue Treasury," and will
gojinto effcot when Blgnod by the Presi?
Its Items are as follows:
A duty on wool of sixty per cent; of
the McKinley low rates.
A compensatory duty on woolen goods
of sixty per cent, ot the McKinley act
A duty of sixty par oent. of the rate of
1890 on lumber, which will be from ten
to fifteen per cent, ad valorem.
An Increaso of twenty-live per cent,
from the Wllaon-Gormnn aot rates on
cereal broad stuffs, dairy produots and
live stock, Including poultry.
An lnorease of fifteen per cent, from
the Wilson-Gorman rates ou all other
schedules, with the provision that in no
oase shall the duty exceed tbe McKin?
ley rates, except where the Wilson?
Gorman rates exceed tbe'MaKlnley law.
Th second bill will provide for two
issues ot bonds; tbe first would be an
amount of 3 per oent. five year coin
bonds to protect the gold reserve, with
the provision that the currency re?
deemed by the proceeds snail not be
paid out for current deficits in tho
revenues unless the expenses of the
Government are in excess of revenues
which, it is expected they will not be,
it the first bill is in operation.
In addition the second bill will pro?
vide for one year two per aant. Treas?
ury certificates of indebtedness, not to
exceed 850,000,000 lu amount, and to be
disposed of at the discretion of tho
Treasury to meet current deficits in
revenue. These aro to be offered for
sale at the Bub-troasuries and deposi?
taries of the Government.
It is also said that there may poaslbly
be added to tho bill a plan to increase
tho ourroncy by authorizing national
banks to iasuo circulation to the par
value of all .ho government bonds de?
posited by them with tho government
as security for their notes.
Tho plan outlined was not agreed
upon w thout considerable debate, but
tho loadora are assured that both bills
will pass tbo lIou.se wlihout material
opposition, a thorough canvass being
made by State delegations, and thero
aro strong hopes that the Senate will
act upon them promptly. Saturday's
meeting showod a large percentage in
favor ot the plan.
Several Western free silver Republi?
cans held a oonferanco during the day
and decided to oppose any bill contain?
ing bond features. Their votes will be
cast against tho bond bill, but It is ex?
pected tbat it will draw enough votes
from the Democratic sido to offset the
deficiency. On tho other hand tho
tariff bill will probably be passed by a
strict party vote.
By the same division the House Re?
publicans held some hopes that their
plan can carry the Senate, mustering
all the Republican and two Populist
votes for the tariff bill, and a combina?
tion of Republicans and Demoorats for
the bond bill, although the supposed
free sliver majority of tbe Senate makes
the success of the second bill much
There have been conferences of Re?
publicans of both bouses preliminary to
tbo present plan and a caucus will be held
Thursday when much time Is likely to
be consumed. Tbe advance on live s too k
and ceroal breadstuff* was secured by
the efforts of members from tbe North?
west, and is intended in part as a reply,
said one commltteeman, to the charge
that Republican tariff favored the mo?
nopolies rather than the farmers.
How much debate will be allowed has
not bann decided, but not more than
two days at most is planned.
The bill will be laid before tho Dem?
ocratic members Thursday morning,
and introduced in the House on tbat
day with a limited debate, on the
ground that tbe bills are omergency
bills, that cannot be delayed.

ANOTHER HOND ISSUE.
No Immediate Proapeota of One The
Protldent Will Walt.
Washington, Dec. 23 ?It can be
stated on good authority that tho rumor,
which has gained some currenoy, to the
effect that tho President had decided
to announce another bond issue at
onoe, and that this conclusion had been
reached at a Cablnot meeting yester?
day, Is without any foundation In faot.
The only members of the Cabinet who
saw the President yesterday were Sec?
retary Lamont, who had just returned
to the city and oalled to pay his
respeots, and later In the day Secre?
tary Olney and Secretary Carlisle.
The general situation was discussed
Informally, but the questlou of an im?
mediate isBuo of bonds was not con?
sidered. Indeed, U Is stated that In
view ot the President's very recent mes?
sage to Congress asking for legislation
which might render another issue un?
necessary it would be a soant courtesy
to that tody to anticlpato its negative
aatlon before an opportunity had been
given it to comely with the President's
requoat. The President has himself re?
peatedly stated, howevor, that ho would
protect tho public credit, at whatever
cost, should tho necessity of the sltua*
tion require heroic action; but at tho
present moment it Is argued auch a
necessity has not arisen.
