Secretary Gage appeared yesterday before the House Committee on Banking and Cur rency to present a bill embodying his views Tor a revision of the currency, to explain and urge its provisions, and to meet any objection raised by the com mittee. He said in opening: "The ob ject I have in mind in the series of provisions offered by me are four in number: "First To commit the country more thoroughly to the gold standard; re move, so far as possible, doubts and fears on that point and thus strengthen the credit of the United States both at home and abroad. "Second To strengthen the Treasury In relation to its demand liabilities, in which are included greenbacks, Treas ury notes, and the incidental obligation to maintain on a parity, through inter changeability with gold, so far a3 may be necessary, the present large volume of silver certificates and silver dollars. "Third To do this in such a way as not to contract the volume of circula tion in the hands of the people. "Fourth To take an initial step towards a system of bank note issues without the conditional deposit of pub lic bonds as security therefor. If we prosper as a people the revenue of the Government ought to be somewhat in advance of its expenditures, and the public debt of the United States gradu ally reduced and finally extinguished. "Looking at the question widely, from my best point of knowledge and experience, I feel that if these could be secured the condition of the Govern ment, in its relation to the currency, would be much safer and stronger than now, and that through the operation of national bank note currency the commercial and industrial interests of the United States would be greatly ad vantaged." After this initial statement it was deemed advisable to read the Secre tary's bill in details and discuss It sec tion by section. The bill has the same features as outlined by the Secretary in his report to Congress, and the chief points are: The establishment in the Treasury Department of a Division of Issue and Redemption. Transferring to the said division of 5125,000,000 in United States gold coin, and such further sums of standard sil ver dollars and silver bullion, pur chased under the act of Congress, July 14, 1890, as shall equal the silver certifi cates outside the Treasury and Treas ury notes of 1890 outstanding on the date when this act shall take effect, and thereafter the gold and silver coins and bullion hereby transferred from the general fund In the Treasury as herein provided shall be increased or Diminished, as the case may be, in ac cordance with the provisions of this act, and in no other way. The Secretary Is authorized to re ceive any of the 5 per cent, bonds of 1S04 and the 4 per cent, consols of 1907, and to Issue in exchange coupon or registered bonds of the United States. The bonds' authorized shall be re deemable after ten years, payable in United States gold coin, and exempt from all taxation; they may be depos ited as security for national bank cir culating notes to an amount not ex ceeding a bank's capital. The amount of bonds so issued shall not exceed $200,000,000. ; ' CABINET FIXES SOCIAL DATES. Official Dinners dud Receptions Postponed. "Washington, Dec. 17. The agreement in Congress to adjourn for the holidays on Saturday next, somewhat earlier than the President expected, was the basis of a special Cabinet meeting at the White House yesterday. It was the first chance that the President had had to talk with his advisors since his mother's fatal illness began, and, as he wished to dispose of business re lating to the legislative branch before the adjournment for the holidays, the meeting was called to get these things in shape for transmission to the House and Senate. Reports from the various Cabinet officers were considered at the meeting and it was agreed to send them to Congress at once. The President also asked the opinion of the Cabinet in re gard to some appointments which he wishes ;o make without delay. One"bf the purposes of the meeting was to consider whether there should be any change in the social programme for the White House on account of Mrs. McKinley's death. It was decided to postpone for a month all official events of a society nature, and not to hold the New Year's reception with which the official season is usually In augurated. The programme was changed so as to postpone tho various events until the folowing dates: Jan. 10, diplomatic, judicial and Congres sional reception; Feb. 2, judicial and Congressional reception; Feb. 9, Su preme Court dinner; Feb. 16, army and navy reception; Feb. 23, Congressional, diplomatic and judicial reception; March 1, public reception, from 9 to 11 o'clock p. m. POPULISTS TAKE ACTION. Oppose Civil-Service Lows and Are Opposed to Currency Reform. Washington, Dec. 17. A caucus of the Populist members of the House of Representatives was held at the Na tional Hotel .last night. The following resolutions were adopted unanimously, except that referring to civil service: "Resolved, That it is the sense of this caucus that we will resist all ef forts to so modify the existing civil service laws as to enable any party that may be in power to fill the dif ferent positions in the civil service with partisans. "Resolved, That we are opposed to and will resist all efforts to destroy our greenbacks and Treasury notes, whether it be by direct legislation or by the subterfuge of refusing to reissue the same exceDt in exchange for gold.

Dec. 17. Some time ago, when It was rumored that a British warship had seized Clipperton island, the local papers took the mat ter up, and there was some agitation over the reported forcible occupation of Mexican soil. The foreign relations de partment asked the war department te send an expedition to the island to in vestigate if the British really had tak en possession. Four days ago the cor vette El faemocrata, Captain Teofolio Genesta, left Mazatlan for the island. Should it prove true that the island which Mexico claims as belonging to her has been seized by the British, the matter will be taken up diplomatically for the purpose of recovering the terri tory. Mexico will formally request the restoration of the island. No one here expects any serious dif ficulty over the matter, and there is as yet no definite official information in possession of the government regarding the alleged seizure of Clipperton. At the foreign relations department it is said that the object of the expedition was not warlike, but merely to ascer tain the true condition of affairs. The same thing was said at the war depart ment. There is no disquietude over the matter here. The newspapers, however, are likely to make much of the seizure if it turns out to be a fact, for there is a senti ment among the people that Eng land unjustly acquired Belize, or Brit ish Honduras, from this country. The Mexican Herald, editorially, says: "European nations are looking forward to the time when by weakness of the great republic, champion of the Monroe doctrine, they may proceed under one pretext or another to carve up South and Central America. If the American people allow themselves to be beguiled into unpreparedness for war, they will assuredly be caught all unready by vigilant Europe and their sea power destroyed, whereupon Latin America will be seised as a fox does a fat capon."

LOCAL SCENES GETTING FOWLS READY FOR MARKET. How the Killing Process Is Done And the Stripping Boom Turkeys Big And Fat Chosen Friends Notifica tionAn Interesting Meeting Ground Broken For the Erection Of An Ice Plant Notes. As the time is gradually drawing near when happy Christmas time makes its appearance, all the poultry dealers are getting in readiness for the Christmas trade. The stock yards are full with a mass of animated b jdies fat and plump awaiting their turn at execution. The Waterbury markets have many orders for chickens, turkeys and ducks to sup ply this week, consequently some of Oakville's dealers are exceedingly busy. Yesterday the reporter visited one of the largest stock farms in the town and witnessed some sights which were unique, to say the least. Several men were present and located in a place well protected from the wind, and a huge iron pot hung sus pended upon a rod under which a red hot Are' was cracking fiercely. The doors of the yards would be opened and as one helper entered it was quickly closed. In an instant every thing was in a state of agitation, the big chickens ran clumsily from side to side against the wire netting try ing in vain to escape the clutches of their pursuer. One by one they were handed out and tied securely by the legs after which they were weighed and a memorandum kept of the exact figures. Another fellow stepped up and holding half a dozen in each hand braced himself as if expected attack. Immediately one man ad vanced with a small knife, sharpened to a point and with a dexterious twist savers the windpipe of the victims. They die quickly but flop vigorously making feathers and blood fly in all directions. Turkeys are difficult to handle and make a fierce resistance. The pile of dead poultry is then doused in the steaming water and the pot is large enough to hold several. The bodies can be easily picked of all feathers after this operation is per formed and are then taken to the dressing rooms where pile after pile of steaming feathers lay upon the floor and rows of dressed poultry upon the shelves. The operators are busily engaged with sleeves rolled up icking the turkeys and other poul try. Large shipments arrive every week and still the scene goes on until Christmas. Little doves more commonly known asquabs are taken by the wings and a man sinks his teeth deeply in the back of its neck and head and the little creature is practically dressed while alive aud suffering. It is said that this is the only way to do. All members of the Chosen Friends are hereby notified that the dance and sociable which was to have been held last Tuesday evening, by the members of Rainbow council, has been post poned for two weeks on account of storm. Tickets purchased will hold good, however. Admission ten cents.' Miss Da'isie Ineson, of Waterbury, led the Christian Endeavor meeting b'&reilas'i evening in the Cor-gregut'ional church. The large piano pin machine, at the works of the Baird Machine Co, is now about completed and will be ready for shipment. INTER-STATE COMMERCE. Synopsis of the- Corr.im'ission's Annual Report. Washington, Dec. 17. The eleventh annual report of the Interstate Com merce Commission has been made pub lic. It contains much interesting in formation about the dealings of rail road companies and common carriers with the general public, and the efforts of great corporations and big shippers to secure advantages in rates, as well as a general outline of schemes for the oppression of small shippers. During the year charges and prac tices of 510 carriers In various parts of the country were inquired into. The report shows that freight charges paid by the public during the year 1896 were J786,615,S37, and that a very slight change in rates on a staple article amounts to an enormous sum In the aggregate. The railway traffic man ager may decree whether an industry shall exist or a locality flourish. The question, the report points out, Is one of transcendent importance both to the Capitalist and the humblest citizen. Advance figures from the prelim inary report on the income account of railways for the year ending June 30, 1S97, prepared in the statistician's of fice, are also given, which show that the gross earnings of 743 railways, rep resnting, on June 30, 1897, an operated mileage of 180,127.65 miles, were $1,116, 633,909. The operating expenses were $747,589,370, leaving net earnings of $369,046,629. The railways also received $34,166,656 from sources other than op eration, so that the total income for the year was $403,213,285. The total deduc tions from income, including in the term interest, rents of leased lines, taxes and other charges against in come, were $347,335,105. The dividends declared amounted to $57,290,579. The deficit from the operations of the year as reported was $1,412,399. The statistician of the Commission recommends that reports should be re quired from express companies and companies owning rolling stock used on railways; also Bpecial reports from depot and elevator companies and car riers by .water.
