NATIONAL CAPITAL. Hermann lias introduced a bill to pay the Vaalem band of Tillamook Indians 10,5U0 and interest since 1861. Delegate Rawlins of Utah has intro duced a bill to extend the time for mak ing proof on desert lands to five year. The subcommittee of the House Bank ing and Currency Committee has agreed to report favorably the bill to issue cir cnlating notes to the full amount of the bonds deposited to secure circulation. In the Senate Mr. Mitchell of Oregon Introduced a bill providing for the ap propriatkm of fl 5,000 for a lighthouse at Cape Arago, Or., and 10,000 for range lights at the uaouth of Uie Willamette river.

The House Committee on Indian Af fair haa a numlr of hill before it, and the intention of Chairman Ilolman is to commence active work a soon as pos sible. Probably the most important measure is a bill introduced by IMegato Rawlins of Utah for the relinquishment of a portion of the Uintah and Uncom pahgre reservation in Utah. It is claimed that asphalt deposit, which are very valuable, are found on lands pro posed to tie ceded. There will lie great opposition In the House Committee on Foreign Affairs to the resolution of Hittof Illinois on the ground that It would not be right, in view of a further promised communica tion from the Executive on the subject, for the House to give expression to the sentiments contained in tho Hitt resolu tion. Hitt will make every effort to se cure a favorable report from the com mittee of hi resolution; but, a it will take at least three Democratic vote to bring about such a result, it is doubtful if he will be successful. A decision npon the alien contract law wa rendered in the Supreme Court of the United States by Justice Brewer. In the United States Court for the eastern district of Pennsylvania John 8. and Jo seph Lees were fined f 1,000 for violation of the law, and aptiealed, attacking the constitutionality or the act and the ju risdiction of the court. Justice Brewer announced that the Snpreme Court fonnd the law to be constitutional and the District Conrt had jurisdiction. But the proceeding against Lee being crim inal in its natnre, the conrt below erred in compelling the defendants to give tes timony in favor of the government. This error was sufficient to warrant a reversal of the judgment and to remand the case to a new trial. Since the resignation of J. J. Van Alen from the position of Ambassador to It aly, which took effect November 25. the date of his second letter to the President on the subject, Mr. Cleveland ha had little opportunity to consider the ap pointment of his successor. It is said, however, that he ha thought the matter over and will not long delay sending the nomination of a new Ambassador to the Senate. The presence in Washington last week of Oscar Straus of New York has been coupled with the resignation of Mr. Van Alen, and some astute New York politician give credence to the story that Mr. Strau may be selected. It is also stated that the name of Judge Lambert Tree of Illinois, ex-Minister to Belgium, will be presented to the Presi dent by Hon. Don M. Dickinson, if he has not already taken action. The contracts for three new gunboats have been awarded to the Newport News Company, the Board of Nval Officers having finished its considera tion of the plans. The Union iron Works through its representatives made a strong effort to obtain a contract for one of the boats. They offered to hnild the two larger vessels for $202,000 each, and made a similar reduction from their bid on the third vessel. The ships wiil be built bv Huntington' Companr for (SW.UOO each. They are known as No. 7, 8 and 0. As finally settled npon by the department No. 7 will be 220 feet long by 36 feet beam, of 1.201 tons dis placement and 14 knot speed ; Nos. 8 and 0 will be 250 feet long by 60 feet beam, of 1,313 tons displacement and and thirteen knots speed. All three will be twin-screw vossels with triple expansion engines, and will carry arina nn nt of six-pounders and under. It is not known definitely what the House Committee on Banking and Cur rency will do upon the bill to repeal the 10 per cent tain State banks. A bill will lie reported as soon as a vote in the com mittee is reached. Of the seventeen members of the committee the six Re nuhlicans. Springer of Illinois and Sperry of Connecticut will vote against report ing the bill. Johnson of Ohio, who was supposed to be doubtful, says he is against the bill, but will report it favor ably Irom the committee to get it before the House. He thinks with a matter of this importance, In which so many mem bers are interested, the question Bhould be brought before the House for consid eration, tmt will reserve the right to vote against the bill on the floor of the House. Several members who were for repeal before the message have expressed them selves since as indifferent or believing it would not be wise to pass the measure now. Senator Cullom has introduced a bill intended to meet one of the weak points that experience has found in the inter state commerce act. This proposed amendment ia intended to force the ac ceptance by one railroad of the traffic of another, for the purpose of making a continuous line and the further purpose of preventing railroads from discriminat ing between roads in the acceptance of traffic Section 3 of the original inter state commerce act was meant to do this, but the railways, a Senator Cnllum puts it, are inclined to be technical, and there seems to be some difficulty in car rying out the law In that regard. An other amendment by Mr. Cullom defines with positiveness the meaning of the word line" applied to railroad, and is intended to cure the act of a defect and meet the derision of Judge Brewer, who in a case before him in the United State Circuit Court construed the word line to mean something different from the con struction which aciwding to Mr. Cullom the trainers of the law intended it should moan. The last amendment repeals the present claus making violators of the Usetva&as) FOREIGN CABLES. Formation of a New Italian Ministry Accomplished. THE VINTAGE OF HUNGARY.

When we take into consideration what a blessing a well-ordered creamery is to the community, it is hard to feel charit able toward a badly-ordered one. The first is a good thing; the second a dis gusting nuisance. When fruit or vegetables are stored in a cellar, be careful to give them ample ventilation. This can be accomplished without raising the temperature too high by having it open during the night. Much of the trouble credited to In sects and fungi can be avoided by hav ing hardy, vigorous plants. Weak growths are m nch more readily overcome by fungous diseases. , , .

Useful Information in Regard to Barn Building. SOME PRACTICAL POINTERS. Experience in Carefully Breeding and Selecting to Secure Fall stnd Winter Layers. I wish to give as briefly as possible what I have learned by experience in carefully breeding and selecting to secure fall and winter lavers, as our egg market here in Central New York is the best as to price during these manths, says a cor respondent of Farm Journal. I used to think that pullets hatched in Jnne were just as good for winter layers as those batched in April, but the last four or five years I have by careful selection and comparison found that theearly-hatehed pullets are more profitable, taking the year through, than late-hatched ones. I hive found that tiie June pullets gener erally did not commence to lay before the last of January or the first of Feb, ruary, even when the conditions were favorable, while the April-hatched ones would commence to lay by the last of September or first of October and con tinue to lay until next March or April without showing any disposition to set, ? living me a very profitable return for eed and care bestowed upon them. It is ell to have a few pullets hatched out late for the next summer egg-laying if one has a variety of fowls which after laying all fall and winter do not lay as well the next summer. My pullets which were hatched out a year ago last April have laid well this summer. Of course, I have had to break them up from set ting two or three times, but that is easily done ; just shut thee up a few days in a small coop, and they will get over it and go to laying again in a few days. As you ask about the varieties I keep, I would say in reply that I first tried the White Leghorns, and found that April-hatched pullets of that breed would commence to lay about October 1 and continue to lay until the next April or the very last of March before wanting to set, thus hav ing a nice profit during fall and winter. The last two years I have used a cross, combining the following varieties: Hou dans, Don.inick and White Leghorns. Ihey did finely, laying a large number of eggs. I had a few pullets which were hatched out about April 10, which com menced to lay about the middle of Sep tember the same season. This year I have a cross between the Houdans, White Leghorns and Plymouth Rocks, and they promise to prove equal to the others. , BUILDING A DAIBT BARN. The Practical Farmer says : Within a few days the writer has received several letters seeking light in regard to barn building, with special reference to the keeping of a dairy and a possibility of winter milk. When one takes expense and convenience into account, with the influence that a barn has in the keeping of stock well, which means a light, dry. clean nd well-ventilated stable, we 'n cline to the idea that the barn should be the ration barrack, and the cows should be stabled in an L to that barn, ex tending to the south, so as to get sun light abundantlvon three sides of it; that it should be of lumber, double I wanted, so as to have a dead-air space in the walls, a good-sized window for null three cows. The stable should not be less than thirty-four feet wide for two rows of rows and nine feet clear on the inside, and each cow should have at least three feet tonr inches of space to stand in, and a half partition l etween each row if possible, and one between every other row in any event, and these rows tied either with halters or sus- I .ended stanchions. Such a stable, with oft for hay or straw, ready for the cows, can he built for not far from $16 per cow, and is in every way better for a dairy of cows than it is possible to construct a basement stable; and when once made it can be kept dry and free from chilli ness, which is the " damper " on profit able milk-making in the winter. In our opinion the great castle-like barn has no place in the economy of the modern dairy. What is wanted is a perfect as possible stable, and the barns that al ready exist may be cheaply made to bold and protect the feed for the stock in the more concentrated form of silage, clover, hay and the grains that are now consid ered essential in making up the balanced ration. FBACTXCAL POINTEBB. Better grow into dairying than go into it A rough hide is a sign that something is wrong. A safe rule to follow is to cultivate all newly-planted fruit trees the same as a crop of corn or potatoes. Some people are not very particular about eating dirt, but they all object to paying for it at prices ot butter. Inspect flocks often during warm weather to see that maggots do not get on the animals. They cause trouble. Do not breed from grade sires if it can be avoided. They always give the prog eny a greater chaitce to inherit " scrub " qualities. The progressive dairyman cannot af ford to use anything poorer than a first class bull. The future of his herd de pends upon him. One of the principal points in making a success in dairying is that of produc ing a uniformly flrtt-class product dur ing all seasons of the year. Cover the pits of blackcaps now if you wish them to root. Better plants will be obtained this way than ii they are left to do their own rooting. The money expended for pure-bred male animals is one of the best invest ments that can be made, and gains com pound interest in a short time. It takes a Christian to properly han dle a good cow; a philosopher to teach her call to drink, and a bandit to do jas tice to the male ancestor of the calf. An apparatus for spraying will soon be counted a necessity where fruit is grown. It is the only successful way of fighting many insect and fungous pests. .

New Zealanders boast of an orange orchard one acre of which yielded $1,000 worth ot oranges. TheWsltham watch-making establish ment employs 1,800 women among its 3,000 work people. A single sponge has been fonnd on the coast of Florida with a circumference of five feet six inches. One hundred vears ago the United States imports aggregated $31,000,000; to-day, $866,361,421. The bituminous or soft-coal output in the United States now aggregates 100,- 000,000 tons annually. Comnletion of the Tehnantepec mil- road will open Mexico's richest coffee section to the United States. . Seven hundred and twenty tons of cardboard are said to be utilized every year in the use of postal cards. More roses are grown in the pretty New Jersey village of Madison than any where else in the unrtea etates. During the last fiscal year the United States smoked up 3,000,000,000 cigarettes and borrowed about half of them. Until 1859 no pig iron was manufact ured in Pittsburg. In 1892 a total of 1,775,257 gross tons were produced. The total currency of the United States is abont $880,000,000. Of this amount about $390,000,000 is in silver dollars. It is estimated that more than $1,200, 000,000 worth of railroad property in this country is in the hands of receivers. Aluminium is beginning to be utilized for roofing, in sheets like tin, the cost of it for that purpose being about the same as copper. The assets of the life-insurance com panies of the United States aggregate $850,000,000, while the gross income ia $220,000,000. . Something over 7,000 tons" of silver were purchased under the act of 1890 by t he general government at a cost of about $156,000,000. Thirteen years ago the Argentine Re public imported 6,000,000 bushels of wheat. This year it has 40,000,000 bush els for export. The gold production of the United States for 1893 will be over $35,000,000 an increase of $2,000,000 as compared with the previous year. The lumber export of the United States in 1892 amounted to $28,000,000. At the present rate of use our supply will be exhausted in 100 years. The carrying capacity of the cables be tween Australia and Europe is from 72,- 000 to 100,000 words a day. The actual traffic is about 6.UW words a day. Excluding about 62,000 small crafts, the commerce of the world is carried on by 45,000 vessels of 20,500,000 registered tons, with a carrying capacity of 48,000, 000. The American Casualty Insurance Company has got rid of $1,700,000 in its four years' existence, the company's losses being mainly ascribed to ita rail road business. TTnon a recent purchase of 10.000 tons of raw sugar, not more than two weeks' supply, the American Sugar Refining Company will net, it ia estimated, a proht ot $230,000.

A statistician finds that the average value of a mule ii $7 more than that of a horse. In Texas the price of a mule is about twice that of a horse, and in other Southern States it takes a longer purse to buy the long-eared quadruped. PERSONAL MENTION. Qneen Victoria has presented to the Pitcairn Islanders a fine lifeboat, which will be taken to them from Ksquimault, B. C, by the Pacific flag ship Royal Ar thur. Chief Engineer A. H. Able, U. 8. N., who has recently completed his sea duty on the cruiser Newark, will be Chief En- fineer at the League Island navy yard, hiladelphia. William R. Smith, who for many years has been the Superintendent of the Bo tanical Gardens in Washington, has, it is said, personally directed the planting of more than 6,000,000 trees in different parts of the United States. " Toby, M. P.," who is the caricaturist of the Imperial Parliament with the pen for London Punch, as much as ia Harry Furnees with the pencil, is famous for his diminutive phvsiral proportions. On the street or in the lobby of the House of Commons he seems merely a walking tall hat with a thin little pair of legs. General O. O. Howard, commander ol the Eastern . Division ot the United States army, is a frequent attendant at the Young Men's Christian Association meetings in New York. On a recent Sunday he delivered an address on the subject, " Loving Kindness Between Fa ther and Son." He is one of the most noted Christian workers in the United States army. Perhaps the most famous distributor of Bibles in the world was Deacon Will iam Brown of New Hampshire.- He be gan the work in 1849, and kept it up until his death this year at the age of 76. During that time no fewer than 120,000 copies of the Scriptures were given out by him, and despite his age in the two years preceding his death he canvassed 239 towns and visited over 80,000 fami lies. , . , . .' Joseph H. Manley, Blaine's old-time friend, remark casually in passing: "It is useless to speculate about Presidential possibilities at this time. Certainly no man who haa any Presidential aspira tions would thank any of his friends for launching his boom at this distance from the national convention. It would be almost fatal to any man to have his friends begin to boom him for the Presi dency three years before the meeting of the national convention." There is a good deal about the present Lord Mayor of Manchester's history which resembles that of the noted Dick Whittington. He was born in the little village of Farcet in Huntingdonshire. He was apprenticed to a draper, and on the expiration of his apprenticeship left with no resources to seek his fortune. He got to Manchester, found work, pros pered and, like Whittington, made a f.r tune and. returning to his native town, married his first maatei's sJaugUV?r.
