SIXTH ST. SPROAT ITS D00MSEALED. Proposition to Repeal the State Bank Tax Is Down for Defeat So It Is Said. POPULISTS OPPOSED. They Want More Money but Desire National Money. Washington; April 19. Special. The great questions in congress for the present, as for some time past, are the re peal of the tax on state bank circulation, the Meyer bill to provide for coining the seigniorage and protecting it by bonds, the bills favored by Mr. Bland and his co laborers, going somewhat further than the former; the Sperry bill to establish a- bu reau of interstate banks, the various labor bills from Mr. McGann's committee and the always interesting measures reported ' by Mr. Hatch from the committee on agriculture. Of ' the first named it was stated at-thc start by the best judges of the temper of the house that it was down for defeat; that it was, in fact, one of those measures which many had to seem to bo in favor of, while very few really wanted it. It was adopted by the Democratic cau cus, it is true, but only 150 members were present, and half of them were the reverse of enthusiastic. It is probably the only measure now pending for increasing the currency to which the Populists are much more Btrongly opposed than the Republic ans. They want more money , it is true, but they are very particular ejs to having it national money. With all the Republic ans and all the Populists opposed to it and half the Democrats hostile or indifferent no prophet was required to foretell its fate. State Banks. The bill by Mr. Richards of Ohio to for bid contracts requiring payment in gold has so far excited little more than a good natured smile among the Republicans and such Democrats as vote with them on financial questior. It would at first view seen; strange ti.cH the Populists should also Hdii ule such a bill, but they are quite con sistent in it, saying that gold is nothing bur, a commodity and should be treated as such and dealt in with the same freedom as wheat or corn. The Sperry bill provides for a national bureau and central redemption agency for state banks, the United States to have su pervision and to hold and certify to the sufficiency of the bonds before euy state bank can issue bills on them, but not to guarantee the redemption of the bills as it does of those of the national bank. In case, however, any state bank should fail to re deem its bills on demand this act provides that the central bureau shall at once act as a receiver, sell the bonds deposited by that bank for whatever they will bring in open market and pay the bill holders pro rata. Such men as Mr. Walker, General Gros venor, Mr. Dingley and other Republicans who deal largely with financial questions will scarcely take the time to even talk about the possibility of such a scheme. In short, it may be said with confidence that that part of the Democratic platform relat ing to the tax on state banks has gone into innocuous desuetude. The Tariff Question. It is a curious fact that the appeals'from all over the country for speedy action on tho tariff, which had almost ceased for awhile, were renewed with increased vigor immediately after the late municipal elec tions, and now both senators and members are bombarded more furiously than ever. Almost every Democratic member has in his possession one or more letters which are a strange mingling of the pathetic and the ludicrous. A Texas member has re ceived one which outgoes Artemus Ward and Josh Billings, though all the humor in it is unintentional. After a frantic ap peal for a reduction of the tariff on every thing except wool, of which the writer is a. producer, and for $50 per capita of silver and paper money, the constituent states that his neighborhood will vote as usual, as there are no Republicans in it, and con cludes with this inquiry, "What is Cleve land a-goin to do with that man Breckin ridge?" A Convert to Reedism. Such letters or something else, probably 6hcer disgust at their own helplessness, has stirred up the majority members to a vigorous effort, and some of the most in teresting scenes of this session have oc curred in the discussions of the new rule proposed. Mr. Springer repels, with some indignation, the statement that his plan proves him a convert to Tom Reedism. Fourteen years ago, as he points out, he advocated a proposition almost identical with this one, which was then presented by Mr. Randolph Tucker and amended by Mr. Hunton, both of Virginia. It is a curious fact that one of the ablest speeches on parliamentary law he ever made was delivered by Mr. Reed in oppos ing the Tucker rule. In tho course of it he said: "A majority of the members pres ent and participating in the business of the house is the constitutional idea of a quo rum. It is not the visible presence of the members, but their judgments and votes, that the constitution calls for." That he has made several very able speeches in di rect contradiction to that doctrine is a fact of general knowledge, as is his happy ex planation on the ground of increasing ex perience and wisdom. The Wilson Kill. A western Democrat says: "When such a seasoned veteran as old Bill Holman gives it up and acknowledges defeat long before the election, the political weather must be getting mighty squally, and old Bill says that if we don't get that tariff act through and get away from here by the middle of June our goose is cooked." It is a true bill. That is just what Mr. Holman says, though he would probably compro mise on the middle of July and take chances on the turn of public opinion. Gen eral Black, on fhe other hand, since his return from rilinois, is confident that the people will give plenty of time; that the Wilson bill will become a law in the form it now is in the senate, and hat Illinois will give a good healthy majority in its favor. It is indeed cheering to have one healthy optimist on that side of the house, but so far as can yet be seen it isn't catch ing. Hon. Lyman Trumbull, for 18 years Benator from Illinois and author of some of the most important reconstruction legisla tion, recently surprised his old friends by appearing in the capitol, a little leaner and more wrinkled than of old, but still remarkably vigorous for one of his years. On the same day the veteran Galusha A. Grbw spoke on the proposed rules, showing his old time vigor. Shirts mended by the Peerless. WHAT ANGERS THE MINERS Weaknesses of the Weekly Wages Law ' Pointed Oat By Sir. Little. Attorney General Little thinks the weekly payment law should have a more severe penalty. He has given a decision on the law which affects the ' miners of the state. He says: "The penalty in the statute fails to make it efficient," nd he then quotes the law bearing on the case, which provides for a 5 per cent payment per month when payment ia de faulted. The decision continues: "I understand these corporations are failing to comply . with the terms of the statute. The only way to make this statute effectual is to make it a penal offense for its violation. If this statute had provided that any corporation through its agents fail ing to comply with the terms of the" statute should be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction, should be fined in a certain sum or im prisoned, this would in my judgment render the statute effectual. I see no good reason why attorneys will not read ily take charge of these cases and pros ecute them, for in every instance they can receive a reasonable fee from the corporation failing to pay the miners their weekly wages. "This law is about the same as the law which concerns railroad corporations, which provides that where stock are kill ed and the company refuses to pay, that the owner of the stock may recover full value therefore and compel the railroad company to pay his attorney a reasonable compensation for the prosecution of the case. I know in this class of cases persons who have stock killed on railroads have no trouble in employing lawyers who are willing to take chances on getting their, fee from the corporation, and I am inclined to think that the lawyers will do the same thing for the miners." Complaint was also made that the men themselves did the blasting. Gen. Little says that such a rule is contrary to the statute, as the law requires that these shot3 shall not be fired until after all miners and other employes working therein have been hoisted out of the mine. And it also provides that no miner shall fire any sho the law evidently intending that the shot iirers should be a different set of persons than the miners. Any other construction placed upon these two sec tions would entirely abrogate the purpose for which they are intended. I believe it is in violation of the law to permit the miners to do thjr own firing. It is the intention of the law that all the miners and employes working in the mines shall be hoisted out of-the mines and then the persons employd as shot firers shall proceed to do their duty assigned to them" ; PAUL REVERE'S RIDE. Be Rides It Again Celebration of the Battle of Lexington, Lexington, M-ass., April 19. This his toric town is in fc-ala attire today. It is the anniversary of the battle of Lexing ton, and under the new law the anniver sary this year and forever afterwards will be observed as a public holiday. The booming of cannon and the ringing of church bells aroused the citizens at an early hour, and softer a hasty breakfast hundreds of them followed a drum corps over the route taken by the British 119 years ago. An enthusiastic reception was accord ed Governor Gwenhalge, ex-Governor George B. Robins jn, and a large party of other distinguished men that arrived shortly after ten o'clock. Headed by a band and under escort of over a thousand citizens, the party was taken to the Hancock Congregational church, where the formal exercises were at once inaugurated with prayer and the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. Hon. A. S. Parsons welcomed the visitors in behalf of the Lexington Historical Society and delivered an address upon the famous battle. Other speeches were made by the governor, ex-Governor Rob inson, the mayor and several divines, and after a reception they were enter tained at a banquet. Paul lie ve re ' Bide. A unique celebration of the new holi day (April 19) was arranged by the towns of Medford, Arlington and Lex ington, in the shape of a reproduction of the ride of Paul Revere. It took place last night and adhered as closely to his torical accounts as consistent with pic turesque effect. A horseman rode from Medford to Lexington attired in the cos tume of a century ago, and did his best to arouse the inmates of every house on the route. Inasmuch as Medford was the first place at which Revere really aroused any one, it was deemed advisable not to begin the ride from Charleston. The modern Paul Revere started at a point just outside of Medford and, riding in, carried the alarm to the old royal house, where the people were waiting all ready to be aroused. Prom this point the signals were given for the beginning of the celebration. Along the route illu minations and fireworks lit up the road to Arlington, where Cooper's tavern was alarmed. Salutes were fired. Prom Arlington to Lexington the road was for the most part lonely and there was but little celebration, but in Lexington an enthusiastic crowd welcomed the ri der. The ride closed at the old Hancock house, on the Bedford road, and as a tit ting ending the scene of 119 years ago was reproduced the challenge and cau tion of the sentry and the rousing of the house. A young lady of Lexington en acted the part of Dorothy Quincy. Don't Uelay. It is your duty to yourself to get rid of the foul accunimufation in your blood this spring.

Three prominent United States senators and two private secretaries have been in the city, coming in from the Indian Territory. Two weeks ago Senators H." M. Teller of Colorado, Senator O. IL Piatt of Connecticut, Sen ator W. N. Roach of North Dakota, and their secretaries, F. S. Bright of Indiana, assistant sergeant at arms, and C. G. vv inship of Colorado, went down into the territory over the M. K. & T. railroad. ieg, we have spent two weeks in the territory," said Senator Teller to a Beacon reporter. "I suppose you were there to see about the rights of the Indians and to deter mine whether it should all be open to settlement?" "We were sent there as a senate com mission," eaid the Colorado senator, "to inquire into the rights of these Indians. To see' how they lived; find out their political methods and determine about their courts and then report to the sen ate. I think their courts need the most urgent attention." "By that I suppose you mean that the United States should control these courts?" "Not exactly " was the reply. "The federal courts already prevail to a cer tain degree. There are about 300,000 whites in the territory and they are tried by their own courts. There are also 70.- 000 Indians, the five civilized tribes hav ing tribunals of their own." "Ihe commission has not yet made any definite programme to be followed?" m'sso, we have not. We have gath ered data that will be compiled into a report later on.
