account referred to in this Act as the
"treasury account of Ireland." 'there

charge on the Irish consolidated fund is

tho sums paid to meet the dividends or
tho sinking fund on the stock issued to
guarantee the purchase of land iv Ireland
under the act of 1891, and tho Lord
Lieutenant is empowered on receiving
notice from any Comptroller or Auditor-
General of tho United Kingdom that any
such charge is due to order without
counter signature the payment of the
amount from the Irish exchequer, and
until the amount is paid no other
payment shall be made out of the Irish
exchequer whatsoever for any purpose.
Then follow various classes of charges
against the Irish exchequer in their or
der of precedence. Among other things
it is provided that all existing charges on
church property in Ireland, so far as they
are not paid out of said property, be
charged on the Irish consolidated fund.

treasury, so far as they aro not paid, shall
be paid out of the exchequer of the

Ireland shall bo Kxchoquer Judges, to be

Wilkbsbaree (Pa.), Fob. 19. — To
night a terrific blizzard swept over this
city ami vicinity, accompanied by peals
of thunder and flashes of lightning. The
wind was blowing forty miles an hour
and drove tho snow before it iv sheets.
Pedestrians had serious difficulty in
reaching places of safety. The wind
worked havoc in exposed places about
the city, where signs were blown down,
window giass shattered and telephone
and telegraph wires prostrated. The
storm paralyzed traffic on the electric
roads, and alt trains are running into the

New York, Fell. 19.—A storm broke
over tho city at 11 o'clock to-night. For
atimo it made things lively for pedes
trians, who could not see more than a
tew feet ahead of them through tho snow,
which whirled along on the wings of the
gale blowing at tho rate of forty miles an
hour. It looked as if the long-expected

1888 had arrived. The wind is still blow

CONG SESSIONAL MATTE US.
An Extra Session May Soon 15e
Washington, Feb. 19.—The backward
state of the appropriation bills lends seri
ous interest to the remark Seuator Vilas
dropped yesterday, that there might be
only a short interval between the ad
journment of this Congress and the as
sembling of the next. There aro iwo or
three other mutters of discussion still to
come up in connection with the pending
sundry civil bill in tho Senate. Tho Nic
aragua bill is unfinished business, and
the Hawaiian treaty will be disposed of
iv executive session. The appropriation
bills are also in a backward state in the
House, owing largely to the debate over
tho pension appropriation bill. Hatch is
getting very restless over the delay in tho
Kules Committee on his request for a day
for the anti-option bill, and it is almost
certain a move of some sort will be made
by bim this week.
DR. CHARLES BRIGGS
Refuses to Talk Relative to Ills Future
NEW York, Feb. lU.—The Tribune will
say in the morning: Dr. Charles S. Briggs
returned from a trip to Cincinnati Satur
day. He whs preceded by statements that
if the General Assembly decide against
him ho and Professor Smith of Cincinnati
would secede and form a new church. In
cidental to the project of the two "heresy"
leaders, it is said they would command
tho influence and active support, respec
tively, of tho Union Theological find Lane
Seminaries. They had the assurance, be
sides, that they would be supported by
controlling majorities in the larger con
gregations in New York, Chicago, Cleve
land and Cincinnati. Mr. Briggs will not
at the present time throw any light on
these various statements. He would not
deny tho rumor nor would be confirm it,
even when urged on the ground of the
great public interest in his plans.

President Oakes on the Investigating
New York, Feb. 1!'. — President
bakes of tho Northern Pacitic 'Koad, to
night issued an address calling attention
to a circular accompanying the report of
tho committee appointed to investigate
the affairs of tho company. I lakes says
regarding the committee's report: "It
will, I lcel sure, defeat its own object
without a specific refutation or reply
from the company. As the circular
made occasion, however, for a recmost for
proxies, I deem it my dutyjas President
of the company to recommend all
stockholders not to sell until they had
received a statement, and until the
Hoard of Directors shall have an oppor
tunity to expose tho astonishing mis
takes in facts and figures which the com
mittee has made."
HYDRAULIC MINING BILL.
By Tuesday It "Will Probably Become
Washington, Feb. no.—P.y Tuesday
next, in all probability, the hydraulic
mining bill will become a law. The
House yesterday adopted the conference
report without any opposition. It had
been feared by Caminetti, who guided the
bill through, that he would strike a snag
iv the person of Watson of Georgia, who
had threatened to block legislation and
who generally makes good all his threads
in that direction, or, at least, tries to. The
Georgia statesman was seen by Caminetti
yesterday, however, and was prevailed
upon to o:ler no objections.
Caminetti is in a hurry to have the law
Dlaced on the statute book, and so had
the bill engrossed to-day and will lay
it before the President to-morrow, be
lieving it will be signed within twenty

tremendous pressure caused by some
