Neatly every ftaletman has a bill of this kind. Kven Mr. Itolman, the great watch dog of the Treasury, Introduced a bill to erect a public building at New Allmny, Intl.. a town In his district. And now Mr. Joseph O. Cannon has fal'cn by the wayside. He has been In Const ess for eighteen years, and, dur ing all that time, has never had a pub lic building bill. To day. however, he yielded and brought In a measure to erect a hundred thousand-dollar build ing at Danville. III. He lives at D.tn xlllewlicn he is at home. Senator Cttllom bill In the Senate. lutroduceil the same This depntturo on the txirt of Mr. Cannon tuny have been tbe reason that caused Speaker lteed to call the House Committee on Utiles together this morn ing. At all events the committee con sidered tho matter of public buildings nnd decided to allow tho Committee on Public Buildings nnd Grounds two days for the discussion of Its measures. There arc thirty three public building bills on the House calendar favorably retKirtid from the Committee of the Whole. Some of them are Senate bills and only need the action of the House to go to the President. Mr. Mllllken of Maine, ihntrnnnof tho Houte Committee on Public llulhl lne and Grounds, was absent, and will. out him It was impossible to decide what pellicular bill should be permitted tocoiue up. The 1 tides Committee will meet again when Mr. Mllllken will be ptescnt. General Henderson of IIHnoU. chair man of the House Committee on Illvers and llatbors, said today that he thought tbe committee would not pre pare a bill this seasioo. He thought It ws good policy to let the matter go over for this time A mellng of the committee, he said, would be held soon to take formal action In regard to the matter. The omission or the tobicco telwte clause In the McKlaley TartrT bill I aUcady plaguing that stalesmm. A delegation representing tbe tobacco manufacturing Interests of the country called on Major Mi Klnley this morning to urge speetly action on a separate bill covirlag tbe rebate matter. Tbe omission of that clause has given tlse to oonshlerabhi debate at to tbe viltditv of the law itself. There Is little doubt but it wilt be speedily cured. Commissioner Mason, chief of tbe In ternal lievenue lSureau of tbe Treasury Department, is so certain that tbe law will be amended so as to provide for this rebate that be has eaftd tbe nec essary blanks, i'U w bleb application for repayment i to be made, to be printed. s w Mr. Carlisle to day introduced a bill to place Cnsslus M.

Mr. Vert ctttlclsed the action of the Commission In limiting the bids to a specified area, ami In erclmllng sites cutshleot that limit. It was an unpre tion that was not In the art Itself. The site selected the baseliall ground on North Capitol street he understood to have been chosen because of Its vlrinltv to the Dalllmore and Ohio Kali toed Depot, Imt he protested against the assumtHlon that that depot was to remain where it now w as. Mr. Hale thought the matter was en tirely within the scope of Us powers nnd duties. Mr. l'lumli commented pretty se verely on the action of the Commis sion, hut thought that the discussion wns perhaps somewhat previous nnd that the resolution should be referred to the Committee on Printing. Mr. Gorman expressed his disbelief in Ibe allocations which were heard mound the Capitol nnd which appeared In the public press to the effect tint the Commission bad favored any particular Individuals or the owners of any par tlttilar square of ground, but he be lieved that under the circumstances the proper tiling wouui tie, oetore me property was acquired by the Govern ment, to have the resolution referral to a committee and to hae all the facts presented to that committee. Mr. Vest disavowed any Imputation on the motives of the Commission, but suld there were three objection, as he understood, to the site selected. The first was that It would be very dlfttcult to obtain a foundation there for such a laavy building, tho second was tiara the title was admitted to lie defective, and the third was that the selection was made principally la-cause the slie was on the route of the 1). V O. It. It. It went without saying that If tbe site were purchased by the Government, now for that teason, whenever a strug gle came (as It would inevitably come) between the ltaltlmore ami Ohio lUllroad Company and the Govern ment a- to the route of the road. It would be urged by the company that the location of Ibe Printing Ottlro shcuid keep the railroad route where it was. Ills own conviction was so clear, as to the Impropriety of the existing route, tbat he fhould not under anyconilii gency give hi sanction to aueb a reason. A After further discussion lb resolu tion was referred to tbe Committee on Printing. A long ami Interesting discussion tok place on the subject of tbe threat mtd Indian war apropos of a joint res dluikm to Issue arms to the Slates of North and South Dakota and Nebraska, Mr. Voorhees having charged the situa tion t tbe fact of tbe Indians being starved, and being replied to by Meest. Ibiwes ami Pierce. Tbe debate was Interrupted at -.' o'clock by tbe Election bill lowing up as tbe unfinished busi ness. Mr. Hoar, in charge of tbe bill, sskl tbat in view of tbe fact that in reporting tbe bill at tbe close of tbe last easim be bml addressed the Senate upon it be would now forego any opinion of tbe debate, but would content himself witb answering whale vtr objeettoas sbostitt be made to tbe Mil on the Democratic klde of the chamber, Mr. Turt4e thereupon opened tbe dls lustion in opposition. luttie llo..

T. .lobBron of the To Kalon Wine Compahy, 814 Fourteenth street tictlhwcst I am not utr familiar wllh the laws governing the Hqnor traffic of the iMstrb t, having been a resident of this city for only a short time, bit, on a broad, general ptinclplc I am a fltm lielk-vcr In high license. I believe it would greatly diminish the number of low gin mills and grog shops In the city, and would leave the traffic in the hands of reputable bus! new men, who carry on a legitimate business. The four hundred limit, however, is the feature of the pttsenl regulations to which 1 slrongly object. Not thai four hundred licenses sre not enough, fot I believe they are. but the alisolute power of gianlliigor t ejecting a prtl lea tinns should not lie vested In three men, I think that a high license, properly enfntced. would he a great lieneflt lo this or anv city. I should say tint what Is called a blab license should not be less than $300, and I should consider that sum almut the tight amount. . J. Kline of the To Kalon Wine Company As a business man, I frankly say tbat" I am an earnest advocate of high license, because It would shut up many of the small saloons and thro a gtta'tt'tal more business Into the hands of wholtsale dealers. The present laws, wllh the i-xeeplloit of tbe I'M limit, ate excellent ones, and If tanii-d ut In the war they should le, I would ssk for noth'lnir taller. I know that they ate lulm constantly l-lated ami greatly to the dtttlincnt of legitimate tiralets, and so long as this state of fffnlis continues tbe only remedy I see is that of a high license, and a pretty high one, too. J. W, Latimer, or Latimer A Co.. 1108 Fourteenth street I am not well acquainted wllh the liquor license ques tion In this city, but lny opinions gen erally are In favor of a blgh license. It Is a good thing ami will succeed in freeing the community from many of the dUoideily licensed saloons In the worst quartir of theilty. I would be very well satisfied with the present laws If tbey were properly observed. I believe that a hlh license Is a better method of diminishing the number of saloons than tbe arbitrary limitation of their number by the Commissioners. M. Halllnan, l'.'TO Seventh street northwest I am heartily In farur of tbe blgh-llctnse bills now pending before Congress If tbe liquor dealers are pro lc ted by tbew. I refer to those dealers who comply witb the law and fulfill all the conditions which It requires. If the license was msde too high liquor mo nopolies would be formed and tbe trade placed under tbe control of a few. I should consider $-VM a rather high license, and any amount larger than tbat as unjust ami extortionate. Tbe present regulations are well enough witb tbe exception of tbe 400 limit. If a man secures tbe consent of tbe neces sary number of property holders and r mplics with the other rukss be should be granted a Kt-eese. for be is elected, you might say, to tbe orrkenf liquor deakr. It Is local option on a small W. Wall, 11 Seventh street High licenfe No, I Am not In favor of A bigb license. It is a subject I bar not considered at anv length, but it teema to me that a high license would en sit a monopoly. It would close tbe tutor ns of many of tbe small dealers and leave tbetn wtibout any means of support. I bellne that a man should be alio id te make An honest lirtog in ibe ay be cboosea. I, fenny, Kaitueal Uotel Plesae do not mliiiuote me, for wbna tbe jre teat controversy came up to regard to sUimtay barber sbops I was made to ex press myself contrary to what I said.

O. O. Naples of Wlllard's The higher the license the lietter.

People wilt drink, ami If thev cannot get a drink cheaply wlli pay more for It. In doing so tbey stund more of their earnings ami tnakp themselves poorer. No, l am In favor of granting licenses to all the saloons who want them, and If they break the law then ciose them up. John T.

I will sav, howerir, that high license has wotked writ In Ilaliimore In reducing the attests to aliout one half, but whit I consider has been more effective than t ven high license is tbe closing of all- nlebt saloons ami Keeping ttiem riostH fu in midnight until II o'clock in the motnlng T. A. Sullivan. 1MW K street oottli west I think the present license is high enough for Washington, which uiillke New York, Philadelphia and lialtlmore Is not a commercial city. I am In favor of gMng every man a chance. I think tbat Vi o'elock at night ia tale enoush for any man lo be out. Those wbo violate the law U selling liquor between Is? oVb!t at t-Iglit and i orbick In tbe morning should be pucished. I do not think the teductlon In tbe number of saloons would produce a good moral effect because men would buy and drink their Ihjuor at home and show a bad ex ample to their children. IIny Petersen, 416 Twtlfth street, said: High license would create a m nopoly, and 1 am In favor of giving eviry man a chanc. Those who eU late tbe law should be punished. Mr. McMahon. tH5 Fifteenth street -lie said that be beliertd that the fjont missloBers would raise the price of a license tf they saw fit, despite what tb Mttoon men might think or say, ami t bereft re would is press no opinion.
