Al.tRN IjMNIRMM IX THK SOOTIT Many complalnta have been received at the Treasury Department in the past few days fruin Savannah, Norfolk, and oilier Southern cities that the alten con tiact law la being extensively violated by the arrival at those places of skilled laborers from Canada. They work in Canada in summer, but as soon as cold weather seta In they enter Into contract for the winter with Southern employers. The Treasury Department Is practically powotlcsa to prevent tho entry of such contract labor from Canada, for whllo it Is forbidden by law there Is no pro vl!on for enforcing It as there Is at the seaports, anil it Is contcivuontly a do-id letter. Itncoims asi I'RNsioNa. Captain T. Alnsworth, In chaigo of the Record nnd Pension Division of the War De norllucnt. to (lav submitted to the Sec- rotary his report of the work done by his division during the past fiscal yoar. Iu his report he states that the first Tear's history of tho Itecord nnd 1'cn Mon Division lias shown that it Is pout hie to extricate an important branch of the office from an enormous ar rearage of work, ami that with out the addition of n single rktk or the expenditure of a dollar to the rcaular appropriation. Daring the yiat H-I1.8D2 case bave been dl-ipol of and the work done by the clerk la roken of very highly.

The commliklon which iina charge of tbeatlfctloti of kite for t!i dry -dock on the Gulf coast has been in teuton In the board-loom at the Navy Department for the past three day, but In the ab sence of Colonel Cotnitock has taken no action of any kind. It wa desired by the commission to begin their labors at once, but auric of circumstancea lave arisen uhlch will necessarily detain them In Washington for some time yet It la possible that they will leave before the Chrlstmat holidays, but It la far more probable that the first of the year will have arrived before the commission begins Its actual labors The port which tlii-Y will Rrst vlflt will moat probably be New Orleans, although no route has as vet been mapped out, nor will It be before Colonel Comstock arrive, and he U not existed to put In aa appear ance before the bet-alng of next week. - - Maryland l,oTMAvriut,tuii The Quota of postinaslenblp iu Maryland filled by .'residential apflolotmeats hi been well nigh exhausted, yet the num ber of applicant for exeeutive favor In that State teemi scarcely diminished.

Mr Mnree of Maamehnetti aW lint what the pcrple of tMi lMstrlc nor lid was a better atrwt-car wvcn. not cheaper farv. He chHracterlt d the irotMa tuerl on the cars aa mfaerahha "oM hacka." not worth 1.1 apiece. It took him twenty rtvf mlnntea, he sahl, to crime from the Shoreham Hotel to the Capitol. He favored electric and cable care. Mr. Heard of Allaaonri mfcl he tiki not bettere alt the roads eonld afford to sell eight ticket, for 93 cents, though he ad mllttil thai some of them could. Mr. McCornaa hoped his amewlment would be adopted, because It would not only benefit tbe wnrklogmen, hut would enalde the children ot the working peo ple to ride to ami from school. The street car tax was a greater tax on the tieople than school b'wks. Mr. McCnmaa' amendment was adopted by 46 to 15, ami the bill wm amended. In tlie dennte. In the Senate to day Mr. Gorman pre sented numerous petitions, principally from the Stale of New York, protesting against the passage ot the Elections bill. He Mid that they had been got up under the lend of the New York cfir. - - Jtr, Dawes read portions of a letter written by Census Indian Agent Iee from the Pine Illdee Agenoy to the Indian Department going to show that thete was no lack ot food among the Sioux. He said ho read this to relievo the public anxiety ami to show that Indiana nro not on the war path on account of lack of auppllte. Mr. Daea expresses Ids conviction that tbe Government had substantially fulfilled its entire obligations to thute Indians, and he referred to the report In this morning's papers of the parley lietwrcn Gttirral llrnnke nnd the Sioux chief, In which the litter mtde the ttijiKst to have teams sent to the Hid I, lids to bring In "the ereat quantities of Ucf" which they had there This did not show that they were starving. Mr Yoorhees set up agalnt the tea tlmony of that apt-clsl agent the lestl moun nf General Miles In an Interview the day after the late discussion In the Senate on that subject, saying: "We bave overwhelming evidence fiom officers. Inspectors and agenta as well, and also from the Indians themselves that tbey bave been sulferlng from the want of food more or lest for two reare, and one of the principal cause of dis satisfaction Is that very nutter." He (Mr. Voorheei) wished to correct the Impression thtt tbe rations furnished to Indians were a mere matter of charity on tbe pail of the Government. That waa not so. Tbe rations were part pay ment for land taken from them at price fixed by the Govermneut. Oapltul Nl Tbtre Is some evidence that there is liable to be the honest sort of fight against Mr. Ciisti, of Georgia . in his candidacy for tbe Speakership of tbe mxi House. Thus far la tbe race Mr. Crisp Is well to the fore, with Mr. MilU. of Texas, second, and the rest ot them stringing along. It has devcliqied since Congress got back that Mr. Mills is a much atrjBger wan than had been thought. He has also aa advantage in that be is sot as much subjected to the attacks of the other aspirants as U Mr. Crisp, who lead tbe field. So sharp are those attacks that It would really seem that there as some sort of aa or taaUaliou among several of the second ary horses to go for Mr Crisp la a body, thus hoping to kill him off, wbeu there would he a better chance for them. They are for themselves individually, but la the aggregate are aeaiaat Crisp a style of tactics which has often bees used in politics disastrously against the man w ho was the object 1 1 It hostility. Peouior H. Y IMiigrew or South Dakota is a fraak and outspoken man oa atf political subjects except his oara hocm for the Ylee-PiesUeacy. He tt for Secretary rttai-e for Uu Preskk-cy. sad says that the Weal has tt-i heart set oa voting for hiai aia. He ssy that ha thinks Mr. Ulaiee will get tbe v.es of every k legate from every Western State.

Paul T Howen, the well-known Knteht of Ihor and humanitarian, asked the committee to appropriate 50 000 to be used to purchase school books for the poor children of the Dia trlct whose parents wire unable to do so. He cited figures to show that in the HlghCchooi nearly all the children were the eons and daughters of lawyeri, mer chants and preachers ami others who were able to buy the high priced and high trade books used In that school. Thete were, be says, but few children of journeymen tHtwibers. bricklayers ami worklngmen In the High School. He explained that this was owing ti the fact that their txjop'e were not able to purchase the costly books of that grade. Mrs. Olivia Drlggs, who was present. Interrupted Sir. IJowen by saying that It wasn't ao much a question of books, but of dress. She said If the committee decided to appropriate money fur ftee books tt should nlao provide free clothes for the children, as now the poor chil dren do not feci at borne with the better dressed ones, the latter r tnlrlhuting to the unpleasant condition of alXilrr.
