Washington, Dee. 20. The annual
report of the secretary of tho treasury,
Car late, was sent to congress today. It
sh iws, during the first five months of
tho present fiscal year.tbe expenditures
of the government exceed receipts,
$29,018,095. The secretary assumes the
worst effect of the recent financial dis
turbances aud business depression, is
past, that the remainder of the year
will show better results. And be esti
mates the deficiency at the close of fie
year at (28,000,000. To meet this, he
recommends amendment of specie pay
ments resumption act of 1875, to au
thorize him to sell 3 per cent, bonds
not exceeding $200,000,000 in amount,
at not less than par, saying however,
that in his opinion, only great, press
ing financial emergencies would justify
resorting to an Issue of bonds.
He suggests bonds be issued in de
nominations $25 and multiples thereof,
to be sold through sub-treasuries and
postoffices. In case congress should
decline to follow this course he recom
mends the secretary be empowered to
execute obligations of the government
not totta jt?$50,000,000 bearing three
per cent., to be sold or circulated in
payment of government obligations.
He points out the necessity for the ex
tention of power of the secretary to
maintain a large reserve for redemp
tion of United State currency. Tns
secretary adds: "So long as the gov-
eminent continues the uuwlse policy of
keeping Its own notes outstanding to
o rculate a currency and undertake
to provide f r their redemption In coin
on presentation, it will be In my opin
ion essential for the secretary of the
tretsuryto possets the means to meet
suoh emergencies as one which recent
ly occurred in our financial affairs.
He says the repeal of the silver pur
chase act makes such a radical change
In the currency policy of our govern
ment that until Its efleot is more fully
developed he does not consider It ad
visable t recommend further specific
legislation on that subject. He says a
great Increase in the bank reserve in
th mi.nctarv centers of our country
shows conclusively that the amount of
. i- ...,fli(han '
money in me country is jjic "
required for the transaction of business.
He finds one of the prlnolpal difficult
ies the treasury to result from indis
position of the public to retain silver
dollars and silver cartlflcates in circula
tloo.andhas sought t remedy It by
Increasing the number of silver cerlifl-
-,.af rfunoui nitons jew iu '
dollars, retiring the larger

lonal taxes on c gars aud clgaretts, and

fl ii ty exp-rlenced by offlcers charged
with duty of assisting In enforcement
of Chinese exclusion laws, is by reason
of certain practices resorted to by the
utilneso coolie. UI am of the opinion
that as long as our laws prohibit laud
ing of Chinese laborers, the privilege of
pawing through oar territory cannot bo
safely granted and should at once be
revoked. If this privilege Is continued
it will be impossible to secure efficient
execution of laws passed by congress
for exclusion of Chinese laborers.

IN TUB 1IOUSH.
Washington, D. C, Dee. 20. Im
mediately after reading the journal yes
terday Cookran oflered a resolution
which lie sought to present, to appoint
u special committee of seven to Investi
gate the alleged attempt of the last ad
ministration to annex territory to the
United States without consulting tho
house of representatives, aud iuqulre
into tho rights of tho house in the
promises. The resolution had no soon
er been read than a dozen inou on each
side of the house rushed toward the bar
of tho house crying for recognition,
Boutello, meantime, was wild in at
tempting to offer tho resolution to
tnovo to refer the resolution to the com
mltteo on ruleu nnd upon which ho de
manded the previous question.
The confusion was so great that tho
speaker was appealed to several times
for order. Finally Breckinridge made
a point of order that under the rule the
resolution would go to the committee
on rules without motion. Tho speaker
held In accordance with tho point of or
der and referred the roso utlon.
Breckinridge then tried to movo to
go Into a committee of tne whole for
consideration of the uruunt dtflcl-
eney bill, but Boutello was at tho front
demanding recognition for u prlvlledged
resolution and the speaker was obliged
to recognize him. When his resolution
was read it proved to be the resolution
Boutello sought to Introduce last night,
declaring the prerogatives of congress
had been Invaded by the policy of tho
administration and declaring that the
policy consistent with the spirit of the
constitution and traditions of the party
bow was now fully under way. Mo
Creary, chairman of the foreign nflalrM
committee, made tho point that tho
resolution was not prlvlledged and after
some sharp words from each side, Bou
