Statehood Bills Opposed "by Grorer. Washington, Jan. 30. This has been a field day in the house. The opponents of the income tax had their chance. Messrs. Covert aud i3artlett of New York and Tom L. Johnson of Ohio, ;dl Democrats, present d their reasons for opposition, along with the Republicans, to the prop ositiou to impose a bpecial tax on wealth. But it remained lor Bourke Cockran,the great Tammany orator, to eclipse with his eloquence rgaiust the measure all other speeches he lias ever made in con gress. Mr. Bryan of Nebraska closed the debate for the day in defense of the in come tax, and he, too, made an eloquent speech. The call of the committees for reports was dispensed with this morning and the houe immtdiately went, into committee of the whole, and the tariff debate was resumed. Mr. Covert resumed the attack on the bill beguu last evening. He charged that the bill was sectional, and appealed to the boutueru Democrats to helo the north ern Demoarnts defeat the mea'suie, in re turn for assistance in defeating the force bill. Mr. Bartlett of New York declared that he was opposed to an income tax, at any time and in any form, whether as a lider on the tariff bill or as a separate measure. Mr. Pendleton of West Virginia said that the West Virginia delegation would support the bili, aud he thought New York ought to do likewise, and take its medicine iu the form of an income tax. Mr. Bieckiuridgo of Arkansas, ot the ways aud menus committee, referred to the fact that a very full Democratic caucus had decided to make the income tax a feature of the bill. He spoke of the re ports that the bill as a whole might he re committed. Such actiou, he baid, would be disastrous to the business of the country, which, above all, wanted the tariff legislation completed at the earliest time possible. It whs theretore urged that the suspeuMj should cease. While de piession aud lower wages had followed in the wake of the McKiuley bill, he believed that orosperity aud higher wages would follow the enactment or the Wilson bill. Mr. Johnson of Ohio followed, with a railierbensational arraignment of the iu come tax proposition, which gave him an opportunity to advocate the imposition of the Henry George laud tax. Among other things he bald: "I will vote for your income tax. if I must, as I will vote for your tariff bill; hut, as a Democrat, I protest against the one as I protebt against the other as another Democratic measure involving an iusult to labor." Mr. MeKeighan of Nebraska and Mr. Simpson of Kansas, in 5-minute speeches, advocated a graduated income tax. Mr. Cockrau followed as the especial champion of the Democratic opposition to the income tax. At the close of Mr. Cockrau's speech Mr. Bryan of Nebraska, the champion of the income tax, took the floor. In the course ot his bpeech he referred to a re cent showing t hat 91 per cent of the people of the United States own only about 29 per cent of the total wealth, while the re maining 9 per cent own 71 per cent of the total wealth. "The people of the United States who have small incomes pay, on an average, more than 10 per ceut of their incomes to support the federal government, while the rich pay a smaller per ceut. Why should not thib tax be added, iu order that the burdens may he partially euualized? It is objected fiat this tax will endanger the tariff bill. 1 am not afraid that any Democtaric member will refuse to relieve the common people of the heavy burdens placed upon them by the McKiuley bill, for fear he will impose a light but den by menus of an income tax upon those who are amply able to bear it. I piotest air.iiust the perverblon of language wheh we have witnessed it: this chamber. "England taxes incomes moie than" per cent; Pru-sia, as high as 4 per ceui; Switz erland, as high as 8 per cent.; Iudia, as high as 12 per ceut., aud Austria, as high as 20 per cent. But who will expel him self rather than support his government? Who will chose to live uuder a monarchy, even without an iucome tax, rattier than live iu a republic with a 2 per cent, tax? If uch there be, let him depart." The house then recessed until 8 o'clock p. m. What Causes Pimples? Clogging of the pores or mouths of the seba ceous glands with sebum or oily matter. The plug of sebum iu the centre of the pimple is called a blackhead, grub, or comedonc. Nature will not allow the clogging of the porct to continue long, hence, Inltemrnation, pain, swelling and redness, later pus or matter forms, breaks or is opened, the plug comes out and the pore is once more free. There arc thousands of these poms in the face alone, any one of which is liable to become clogged by neglect or disease. What Cures Pimples? The only reliable preventive and cure, -when not due to a constitutional humor, is Cuticura Soap. It contains a mild proportion of CUncTKA, the great Skin Cure, which enables it to dissolve the sebaceous or oily matter as it forms at the mouths of the pores. It stimulates the sluggish glands and tubes to healthy activity, reduces inflammation, soothes and heals irritated and roughened surfaces and restores the skin to its original purity. Tills is the secret of its wonderful tnccess. For bad complexipus, red, rough bands and thapcle? nails, dry, thtn and falling hajr, scaly and irritated scalps and simple baby blemishes it is wonderful. It is preserving, purifying and beautifying to a decree hitherto unknown among remedies for the skin and complexion. bale greater than the combined sales of all otllerskin and complexion soaps.

SENATE. Wasiiingtox, Jan. 30. The senate has named the day when the final vote is to be taken on the bill repealing .the federal elections law. After another long col loquy between Messrs. Gray and Chandler; the Kepublicaus consented that general debate on the measure should close next Tuesday, at 4 o'clock p. m. After that hour, amendments may be presented and passed upon, but the final vote must be taken before the adjournment of the sen ate ou that day. c During the debate on the bill Mr. Chau dler introduced two amendments to the bill, the first providing that the Aug of the United States and the words "For representatives in congress" should be stamped, uuder penalty, on every box for congressional ballots in elections iu the states, and the second requiring election judges to make up aud publicly declare the result of the congressional election in their precinct immediately after the close of the polls. The bond question came up again, and, after a long debate, went over, by unani mous consent, until tomorrow. The reso lution of Mr. Stewart of Nevada, deciding the proposed issue of bonds to be without authority of law, was taken up, aud Mr. Stewart addressed the senate in its favor. Mr. Shermun followed Mr. Stewart, and a significant feature of bis speach was the firm stand ho took in defense of Secretary Carlisle. lie criticised severely the attacks upon the credit of the nation in thereaolution proposed by Mr. Stewart and in Mr. Allen's speech. Continuing, Mr. Sherman said: "It is almost unpatriotic to.qnestiou this power at a time when tiie revenues of the government are insufficient to meet ex uuuditures. It is a question that should be above partisanship. I feel like stand ing up for the honor of the country and the power of the secretary. The power to issue bonds in just such a contingency as Iiab now arisen was given by law in the strongest and clearest and most direct language that could be used. That law aud power have stood uuchalleuged aud uncontradicted from that day until a few days since, when resolutions were intro duced in this body denying the authority of the secretary of the treasury at a time when bids were about to be issued." Mr. Sherman proceeded to argue that the construction of the law was favorable and even mandatory of the power now about to be exercised by Secretary Car lisle. At the conclusion of Mr. Sherman's re marks, Mr. Qnay introduced an amend ment to the resolution, the purport of which was a declaration that the secretary of the treasury had no power, "except to provide for the redemption of the legal tender notes of the United States present ed at the sub-treasury in the city o New York." Mr. Dubois of Idaho, as a substitute for the pending resolutions, presented the following: "Itesolved, That it is the sense of the senate that the secretary of the treasury has no authority uuder existing law to issue and sell the bonds of the United States, except such as is conferred upon him by the act approved Jau. 4, 1S75, en titled 'An act to provide for the resump tion of specie payments,' and that the money derived from the sale of bonds is sued uuder that act cannot be lawfully used for any other purpose except for thut provided therein." The resolution seemed to meet the favor of Mr. Sherman, be sayiug that he ap proved of it. Mr. Teller said that if bonds were issued we should be obliged, morally aud legally, to pay for and redeem them, regardless of the nse made of the mouoy. If the govern ment reached a point vrhere an issue of bonds was necessary for current expenses, then it would be necessary for congress to provide the means by legislation lor the issue of such bouds. Mr. Teller comment ed on the causes of the present depression. He differed from Mr. Sherman as to the causes. He did not believe that the finan cial difficulties were due to impending tariff legislation, but to the repeal of the Sherman act. Iu his opinion, the difficulty began iu IST.'i; had beeu continued by acts of congress siuce that time, aud culmi nated when the Democratic administra tion insisted upon the repeal of the Sher man law.

Bruhl of Texas, to bo consul at Catania, Italy, ana .dgar liattle of Texas to bo consul at Acapulco, Mexico. NO NEW STATES WANTED. Washington, Jan. 30. Tho president has furnished the southern aud western wings of his party oue more grievance. Ho has caused it to be known that he is against the admissions of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. This opposi tion is not of a negative sort. With tho same kind of overmastering tactics which has enabled him to dictate on other ques tions of policy, the president proposes to stop the admission fever if he can "without waiting for the time to veto. He is against tho territories coming iu because he does not think toe general welfare of the country will be hulped by it. The idea ot adding eight more to the already large collection of western silver senutors seems to the president preposterous. He thinks it is- putting the populous east, with gieat interests, at the mercv of the only partially developed west. The presi dent in all of his reasoniug and sympathy is au eastern man, and he has no difficulty iu deciding in his own mind against the admission of any more western stutes at present. ' ..THE COUtiHLIN TRIAL- CHICAGO, Jan. 80 Dr. Charles Perkins, for whom Jdge Wing had caused a snb poenn to be issued last night, took tho sjtaud in the Coughlin trial this morniug. He. was wanted to explain the statement of Dr. James Bell, that Drs. Egbert aud Peiki i, at the autopsy upon Dr. Cronin's body .ad expressed to him considerable doubt as to the cause of death. The physician insisted that he had said noth ing of the kind. Dr. Bell then resumed the stand for crcs-.-examination. During the testimony of James Hvland he said that he was witn Iceman O'Sulli cn at .the latter's home at the time Dr. Cronin is alleged to have been murdered aud had gone with hfs cousin to Nie mann's saloon for a drink. Niemann had previously testified that Coughlin was in his place, near the Carl sbu cottage, on the night of May L and the defendant's counsel. Judge Wing, un dertook to show that Hyland might have L-een'mistaken for Coughlin. A dramatic scene resulted. "How tall are yon, Coughlin?" asked the prisoner's attorney. "Six feet and oue-half inch," responded Coughlin promptly. "Now stand up by Hyland," the lawyer coutinued, and as the witness and the prisoner stood np side by side the resem blance was remarkable. v Coughlin bad spoken the first word he had ever uttered iu his own behalf in court, and as the two men stood together a murmur ran through the courtroom, and the jury, s well as the spectators, evmcetl a deep interest. Thomas Whaleu. who was a cousin of O'Sulltvan, now took the stand. He testi fied that he ate supper with O'Sullivan aud Hyland on the night of May 4, 1SS9. A NEW COAL COMPANY. TOPEKA. Kan.

LOXDOS, Jan. 30. The Rothschild bank ing bouse has received a dispatch from Rio de Jaueiro, saying that Admiral da Gama has surrendered. Buexos Atkes, Jan. 30. Heavy firing is reported at Rio de Jaueiro. It is said that the United States war vessels have hesn engaged, with the result that Ad miral da Gama is said lA have surren dered and to have withdrawn his ships from the harbor. These reports are not yet confirmed, but there seems to be no doubt that serious events are happening at Rio. As this dispatch is sent a report reaches here that Admiral da Gama is a prisoner in the hands of President Peixoto. London, Jan. 30. Dispatches from Rio, dated today, say that at 10 o'clock this morning Admiral da Gama opened fire on the American ships. A sharp engage ment followed, aud Admiral da Gcttna was finally forced to surrender. The Brazilian minister here said that ha had no doubt thut the news was true; that the iusurgents uow had the command of only one warship, the Iipublica, and that the filial collapse of the revolt was a mat ter of only a few days. B trou Rothschild added that he b2 lieved hisj dispatch to be perfectly authoritative, for it came from a reliable ' source. A high official of the Britiph foreign office said that it might be true that Ad miral da Gama had surrendered to the United States admiral, as that would be the easiest way out of a great difficulty. Iu conclusion, the diplomtt said that he did not see whut Admiral Bdulfani was going to do with the insurgents. He certainly could not surrender them to Presiditit Peixoto, who would certainly shoot them, aud it is not probable that the United States government would care to assume the care of a mass of Brazilian insurgents for an indefinite period. If. therefore, it was true that the insurgents had surren dered to the United States admiral, the latter would seem to have an elephant on his hands. BENTIAM'S STATEMENT. Rio DE JAXEino, Jan. 30 The following statement has been made to the Associated Press correspondent by Admiral Benhani, commander of the United States fleet in this harbor: "The insurgent forces on Obras island last Priduy fired upon a ship flying the United States flag. I protested to Admiral Saldhaua da Gama against this action, and his response was thut he had warned the commander ot tbo ship when It was at Rio do JhiKifis ?-a- o tLo vii.rut.V..i'(,s oC tilo danger line. I ordered Admiral da Gama to cease the firing. Both the guns from the staud on Obras island and the guns of the insurgent warship Trajauo opened lire on Saturday upon the bark Agate, hailing from New York. I warned Admiral da Gama at once that if the fire was repeated I would fire back. I also warned htm that if he touched an American ship or Ameri can goods I would consider him a pirate. I told him that I would protect American property from the fire of his guns, aud that Ishould retaliate upon him for any damage done, unless it wus clearly apparent that the damage was due to chauce shots." Admiral Beuham theusays that, he noti fied Admiral da Gama unofficially that liiiug by the insurgouts upon the wharves for the purpose merely of creating terror. and to prolong the blockade, was not to be permitted, so far as Americans and American vessels were concerned. To this communication tne insurgent admiral made no answer. The captains of three American vessels, Admiral Benham con tinues, intimated that they wauted to go to the wharves, aud the American admiral notified Admiral da Gama that it was his intention to convoy them at sunrise on Monday. Fearing trouble, Admiral Ben ham issued an order that the vessels of his fleet be cleared for action. The three shipj referred to were the Amy, the Good News, and the Julia Rolliu. The captains of twoof the ships we.ikeued and tailed to go iuto tne Harbor. The Amy was the only one that ventured in and she was escorted by the United States cruiser Detroit. As a precaution against auy possible aggies- c,-n iintinn nn tint nnrf. nf tllM HlnriMl t the cruisers New York, Charleston and Newark were assigned to watch the ac tions of Admiral da G.ima's ship, the Aquidabau, while the Detroit aud the Sun Francisco were signaled to take posi tions near the Tiajauo aud,the Guanabara. These precautious certainly proved ef fective, and the insurgents, in the face of the formidable array of American vessels, made but tho feeblest attempt tobinder the Amy's progress to her wharf. No nuns were opened up on her by Admiral da Gama's vessels, and, as a matter of course, the American yesoels did not fire upou the insurgent ships. The insurgent protest consisted of this: As the Amy got abreast of the Guauabttra a marine on the last vessel pointed a musket at her aud fired. Two musket shots were fired at the Guana bara aud the Trajaho from tho Amy's escort, the Detroit, in return. This was all the firing dotie during the Amy's trip, aud it was enough. All opposition ceased at once, and the use of heavy gnns was not considered necessary at auy time. The reason the other two ships which had notified Admiral Benham that thev wished to go to their wharves failed to do j so, is that their commanders were dis suaded from entering the harbor by a man of the name of Rollins, who is be lieed to be the agent of an English firm which has been furnishing the rebels money. At a Inter hour Admiral da Gama con ferred with his officers upon the advisa bility of surrendering to the Detroit, in cousequence of tbe-musket shots fired. He was dissuaded from doing so, but it is thought possible that he may yet decide to surrender to the American commander. There Is no doubt that Admiral da. Gama is in a bad way. A proposed compromise was refused by President Peixoto, and it seems only a matter of a short time when ho will have to give up the straggle. The complications of the insurgent situation Are increased by the absence of Admiral de Mello. The failure of the latter admiral to arrive here to the assistance of the insurgent fleet has given risa to the report that hs is dead. The commanders of the sixteen warships here, including five American, four En glish and four French, have snt messages to Admiral Benham, congratulating mm upon his prompt action. The Austrian commander cleared his ships aad made ready to help the American admiral in case help were necessary. Alarming reports have been received here of government disasters at Caratiba. Paranagna and Antouina. It is sUtcJ that these places have been captured by the iasuigents. and that the government troop have fled, abandoning their arms and munitions of war. WASniNGTO ADVICES. Washington, Jan. 30 At late hour tonight the following details from the of ficial rtvic, of th ow dnaitraent are J, learned concerning the incidents on the 22th at Riode Janeiro: Previous to the 29th Admiral Beuham had communicated with Admiral da Gama warning him against firtug upon Ameri can ships and refusing to accept the insur gent commander's excuse, that he said giveu warning concerniug where the dan ger line was. The commanders of three American ships having signified their de sire to go to the wharves on the morning of the 29th, the American admiral sent word that he would eouvcy them. He also seut word to Admiral da Gama to that ef fect. Two ships were convoyed to the wharves by the Detroit, the insurgent warships fol lowing them. Wheu nearly at the wharf and while a tug was taking a cable ashore, the insurgent warships opened fire, send ing a volley of musket shot uuder the bow of the tug. The Detroit answerea with a warning shot, and the insurgent ship then sent a shot over the Detroit. The Detroit, iu reply, sent a shell, which reached a por tion of the stern of the insurgent ship, doing little damage. The insurgent com mauder then fireu iu warning a broadside to leeward iu the ooposito direction from which the Detroit lay. This was answered by another shot from the Detroit. The in surgent vessel signaled that unless the Detroit ceased firiug they (the insurgents) would sink the American shin. The lan- ) gu.ige which was used by the American admiral iu answer to this was ol sucu a nature that the incident closed for that day, aud tho ships were allowed to land. The names ot the ships which were lauded are not given in the official dis patch from Rio. The question received in the dispa'.ches this afternoon as to what the United States would do with Admiral da Gama and his forces, if he hr, surrendered to Admiral B.-nham, is exciting considerable interest in utlicial circles here The state ment that he may have so surrendered is credited. It is supposed that if he sur rendered, he did it ou some ass-urauces or promises from the American admiral. The officials are wonderiug what promises may have been made, and whether or not Ad miral Beuham may have premised too much. Admiral da Gama, it i said, has violated none of the lawn of the United States, and he could not be turned over to the Brazilian government. Secretary Herbert of the navy depart ment was asked touight if ho would say anything about the news from Brazil He admitted frankly that he had been in correspondence with Admiral Benham, but .said that he was uot willing to discuss the substance of that correspondence. He was informed by the reporter that hostilities had occurred between Admiral Benham and Admiral da Gama, and that it was reported that Admiral da Gama had surrendered. This information very much surprised him. He said that he had received no information of such a charac ter, but if there was anything iu it he would certainly hear of it shortly. Senator Sherman, the senior Republican member of the senate committee on for eign relations, expressed great surprise at the Brazilian news brought by the Associ ated Press bulletins. Being requested to express au opinion as to what course was probable, in view of the circumstances, on the part of the Amoricau government, he said: "As Admiral da Gama is at the head of a baud of insurgents and represents no organized government, it will not bo necessary to declare war at all. but he and his followers cau be treated as pirates. "I don't court war," continued the spn ator, "but when ve fall into it I am for fighting it out." Senator Quay exclaimed: "A war on, aud no money in the treasury 1 We snail have to protect our interests in Brazilian waters vt, any rate." BArARD'S VIEWS. LONDON, Jau. 30. Embassador Bayard, in at in erview with the Associated Press representative regarding the reports of fir ing between the United States warships aud the insurgent vessels at Rio, said: "Should the news prove true it will bo showu that Rear Admiral Bsuham was merely protecting peaceful commerce, and that no breach of the blockade has been committed, as no blockade has been proclaimed. Rear Ad miral Beuham's action, as reported, does not indicate political interference. It seems to have been simply a defensive movement. The latest news received here indicated what was likely to happen. In my opinion it is the duty of the ships of auy power to protect merchantmen. I cannot, therefore, believe or think that it is likely that there will be any objection by auy other power to Admirul Benham's action." ENGLISH INTERESTS. LONDON", Jan. IK). Lord Roseberry, for eign secretary, writiug in reply to a cor respondent, says that he retrrets the de plorable state of affairs iu Brazil. The government, however, ho sets forth, can not depart from its general policy of non mterferetica in the affairs of a foreign state, but he adds that the British naval officer in command of her majesty's fleet at Rio is giving the same protection to British subjects as other foreigners are receiviug from their respective govern ments. The Standard, commenting upon this of Lord Rosebcrry's, says that his remarks are no longer true, since tho re- markable change in the attitude of the aumirai commauuiug luu uiwieu ciuies fleet. It adds: "The blockade of Rio has been broken up so far as American trading vessels are concerned, nnd we do uot suppose that the Americau example will be lost ou tho merchants aud naval officers representing other nations in tho port. The only ques tion outstanding is as to how far the Washington government will approve and support the action of Admiral Beaham The refusal to recognize the iusurgents as belif;erents is prompted rnther by international etiquet than by obedience to any positive precept of international law. If the United States no longer abides by this punctilio, Great Britain and other states having at stake the Brazilian trade will doubtless foliow suit. "If the blockade is thus forcibly raied. the insurgents' hope of reducing President Peixoto to submission by starving out the capital is ended- This is the insurgents' mainstay. The victory of the government party at Rio, however, will not necessarily involve the government's ascendancy throughout the country. A lingering re bellion might be maintained for months or years in the distant Drovmce, and eventually gather strength enough to ex pel the Peixoto forces." The Tel-graph say: "There is appar ently no issue to the complicated tangle of the " Brazilian conflict, P'videutly the action cf Admiral Benham itiii the result of a desire to submit to a crucial test the question ot whether commerce should or should not be brought t-o an entire stand still while the blocicade was proceeding. In the point District international law the position is anomalous, but practically there will ba a very general sympathy with the Americxns in their decision no; to permit commerce to be absolutely crip pled by the wanton and fratricidal Brazil ian struggle. Considering the rery even state of the conflict, it was extremely un wise of Admiral da Gam.t to risk adding auother and more powerful foe to the ranks of his opponents." A TOUGH KILLED.

Malone, has been fiUtd by the ap pointment of Mr. Davis, late a clerk in the office. The unwashed have again vindi cated their ancient and respectable clnim to beiug unmitigated blunderers. Toe principle of homo rule, whica some of the votaries of that party have feebly aa vocated in the community, had given Lbirth to a hope that the voice of reason and the dictates ot conscience might Da heeded in its couucils- But again the in evitable has taken place, aud this Georgia administration of the Cherokae strip is iu the siddle. Mr. Davis is an attorney of many years' practice; is a man of refinement and culture in short, :t typical southern uen tlemau. He is regarded by his associates with confidence and esteem, and will doubtless take up the burden laid down by "Jupiter" and bear the yoke with patience aud long sufieriug. Against his person alty no voice Is raised, either as to his character or his ability. The principle in volved, however, jn hi-, appointment to the office is most pernicious and impolitic. Many unkind and uugodly things nave been said by the people Jiud the press in the heat of political excitement and in the desperation of the race for wealth which has been experienced .since the strip open ed. Mauy murder.s liavo been committed, many frauds have been perpetrated, aud many new offenses t, against coiiscieuce and the public will invented. All these have bceu witne-xsed by this community, and it liHS maintained its moral equili brium, its menial balance, aud most of us have kept out of jail. Our county com missioners have built a jail, which is said to be mostly "steel." Our register has dealt out favors at the laud office, and the Dalton gang has uot done us thu honor to rob a bank. Doubtless from the long suffering and patience of this community, it was thought that we could staud any thing. It is npon this theory that we cau accouut for a journalistic extravagance which crept iuto the columns ol the Morn ing Sentinel of this cir.y in a recent issue. An impious editor, in a flight of wild im agination, links together Psalm Small, the Lord and the Democratic party, and says that they are al.ko reformers three of a kind, as it were. Messrs. Abercrombie & Weir of Cleve land. O. T., were iu the city today for the purpoe of enlisting interest in tlie estab lishment of a telephone wire to connect us with Stillwater and Pawnee. They confidently expect that iuside of thirty days wu shall be able to "Hello, Cleve laudl" or to "Hello, Pawueel" Tne hue will bo constructed along tho highway route leading from this city to the places named, aud will be furnished with tho most approved system kuown to the science ot telegraphy. The appointment of J. II. Havinghorst as clerk of the court in Judge Blerer's district is uot satisfactory to the Iocil Democracy. Mr. Will M. Nix, heretofore deputy clerk, was a prominent candidate for the office, and had the almost unani mous support of the bar and tho press of P county. Ho had one defect, however; he was uot from the outside, and there fore sufiered the punishment which is impartially administered uuder this re form administration. The Ladies' Guild of St. Mark's parish of this city will give a pie aocial at the parlors of the Perry Choral society ou Thursday evening uex. Elaborate prep arations aro being mad-: for tho event, and much fun aud profit are confidently ex pected to result. Those who cannot have bread can have pie, and oue piece of pie Is as much as each can have. A piece apiece and not'a pie apiece is tho hmtr", for one price of admissiou. A SIGNIFI0ANI' VI0T0RY. Tba Republicans Carry a Tammany Con gressional District. NEW Yor.IC, Jan. SO. Tho special elec tions today for congressmen in the Four teenth aud Fifteenth districts resulted in an even distribution as far as the political parties are coucerned, but the Republi cans are rejoicing over their sigual vic tory in the Fourteenth district. There the Republican candidate, Lemuel Ely Quigg, led his rivul, William L. Brown, by 903 votes, and thus succeeded to the seat left vacant by John K. Fellows (Democrat;, now district attorney. In the Fifteenth district Isidore Strauss was elected over Frederick feieg rist, Republican. Mr. btrnuss succeeds A. P. Fitch (.Democrat;, now comptroller of the city. The defeat of Mr. Brown came as some thing of a surprise to many. His uom iuatlon was considered as a guaran tee ot his election. This being the first congressional election since the commencement; ot the geueral agitation over the Wilsoti bill aud tho iu come tax, the result is ltnportunu It lends color to a reported remark made by Richard Crocker iu hi.s late iutorview with President Cleveland, that the passage of the ilson bill would impair ttie chances of the Democratic congressional candi dates in New York.

Judge Cox ol the district supremo court this morula: declined to grant the application of th' Knights of Libor for an injunction to com pel S.-cretary Carlisle to show why hi should not beenjoined.from Issuing f"u.0OJ 000 bonds, as proposed in his circular. Tn application of the Knights of Lsborcvsert ed that the members of that organization, as citizens and taxpayers, had a right to an injunction. Should the bonds he issued the interest would practically amount to a lax of about $1 per head on the citizen.- of the countrv, thereby rcsultiug lu un outlay of 5300,000 for the Knight of Labor, according to the application filed yesler" day Now," says the court, "thiro never wan a per capita tax in this cotiutry.

Consequently, as taxpayeis or minors, ttin complainant! have uo standing in court,'' Judge Cox then reviewed tho laws bear ing ou the question, uud declared that It was unnecessary to enter Into a discussion of tho right of the secretary to make tho Issue.

THE BANKERS AND THE BONDS NUV YOISK, Jan. 30. Several of th.L bauk officials who attended yestorday conference with the secretary of tho treas ury have arrived at the conclusion that iC will be a mistaken policy to allow tb government bond 1-stie to fail because of inactivity or lack of hiipport on the pure of the financiers of this city. They havi also been forced to this conclusion by thu fear that If the Issue should not bo suc cessful, Secretary Carlisle would endeavor to secure the passage of the hill authoriz1" lug the coinage ot the seigniorage t.l tho silver bullion tow In th treary. A further conideratiuu was the p-wdbllUj-of a reflection upon the credit o the gov ernment by a failure to fell the bonds. Under these circumstances I'resldent Kiug of tho Union Triw company bi undertaken the formation of a nyudioato to bid for the entire issue at, the upset; price. It is understood alo that they have interested Russell Sage and Presi dent Olcott of the Central Trust company with them, aud that the latter will co operate with them in the movement now under way, aud that it is likely to bo a success.
