A debate over the peasiou policy of the present adminis tration, growing out of au item in the de ficiency bill appropriating 1200.000 for special examiners, consumed thocntire day in the house. Under the lead of Mr. Cannon of Illinois an assault was made against President Cleveland's pension policy, especially that portion which ro suited ia the revocation of order No. 16-1 and the subsequent suspension of thou sands of pensioners, Mr. Cannon said that he thought it was time for congress to examine into the manner in which the pension ofllce is being conducted, and proceeded to attack the present administration of the oflice. There had beeu many allegations of fraud, but little had materialized on cross-examination. One million dollars iu rejected pen sions had been classified as 1,ODU,000 saved. After a thorough examination. It was found that but $31,090 had been actually paid out to pensioners who bad procured their pensions by forgery, perjury, or false representation. He undertook toay that there was more fraud in the "dminlstru tion of affairs in the pension office thau ia the adjudication of cases in the courts. Speaking of tho revocation of order No. 1G4, Mr. Cannon, shaking his list ominous ly and vehemently, baid: "It was an act akin to crime," and, con tinued, referriug to the Bennett cae, "If such a ruling had been made by a K-pubil-can administration by Haum aud Ilusey after the construction of the law bad stood for three years and been rati lied by congress, I would attack it as I now attack it." "That's tisht," shouted Mr. Ealoe "Give it to Raum." "Oh, ,no,"jIlel Mr. Cannon. "I will not go for Ilium, hcaue7 in God'a chan cery, be is not guilty, and your commis sioner is." Mr. Cannon said that ho did not desire to attack the pension office, but he did at tack the atmosphere of that office, which, for an honest claimant, was twenty de grees oeiowzero, POWDERLY'S SUCCESSOR. Washington. Dec. 16. Master Work-, man Sovere go, recently chosen to succeed T. V. Powderly as head of tho KnibU of Labor, is in Washincton to attend the con- . ferenca of the silver leidrrs. Inn lalk with an Associated Press rcprctentatlvu Mr. Sovereign outlined his policy, some ot his views being in marked contrast with those of his predecessor. "I am against strikes," said he. "The ballot is much more effective J a redressing wroug than strikes or arbitration." Mr. Sovereign w a-, asked Hs to his posi tion ou the tariff. (It. will bo remembered that his predecessor was a protectionist.; "1 am au out-and-out free trader," sftl he. "I bchee in no makeshift or partial reductions of tariff taxation. The so called protection to all labor U a de-1 lujfon. Labor is nut protected. In vested capital receives a bouu m tho form ot protection, and it is . then optional with the capitalist to give a share of tbe bonus to labor hi the farm of increased wagrs, but this option is sledota if ever exercised." Mr. Sovereign added that tbe tariff and all other questions would bo m da second ary to the money issue, which was a sub ject on which the Kuights of L-tbor and all other industrial orders would join. iU frays that the Kuights are about to cuter upon a new era of prosperity. About 4.0J0 street car workers aud as m.ioy mora clothing operatives will aoou be taken iuto the order at New York. Mr. Sovereign will noon leave for a totir . of North Carolina, Arkunvts and thr lu dian Territory, to orgauizo new arauches of the order. NOVEMBER EXPORTS. WASHINGTON, Dec Hi. November 1833, makes a bad how!ng iu exports as com pared with the same mouth last year. There is a marked failing off in nearly everything. The corn exports were l 501, 5S3 bushels, against 4.40M47 bushels iu Novetnber last jeur. The wheat waa only 7.065.9W sbaaUaU, a decrease of a.WW.CW" bushels. The difference lit valuation i even more striking. Kxports of wheat for November this year brought only 11,015, 219, while the November export of wueat he year yielded tl,'J03,5-7, more ii.an double the amount.

Mr. Livingston made a vigorous defense of the administration. No selt respeciiug man, flaiil he. wouk' believe that President Cleveiaud.Secrctury Smith or General Lochren, in beating the bru-h for fraud, were actuated by a desire to de prive honest soldiers of their nensions. It was true, boweer, that frauds vtouid be prosecuted. Messr-.. iilair, Stone, Cannon and Bing ham baraofed Mr. Ltviugslon at every step. Mr. U!air declared that he did not object to weeding out frauds, but he did object to making that pretext a clonk for a u cli be rate conspiracy to deprive honest pensioners of their pension's. Mr. Lacy of Iowa followed Mr. Living ston. He denounced the conduct of the commissioner of pension-, and referred to the days in Venice wuen cnargas against citizens were placed in the lion's mouth. Trial aud condemnation in ftecret fol lowed. The whole country, be saia, should rise up and rebuke the administra tion. Mr. Enloe, the old antagonist of General Haum, declared the pension department under the present administration to bj the greatest of the government. It was doing are siguwlcaut ligures.
