Congress Considering the Prac ticability of a Scheme, To Save Great Distances in Transportation. STARTED TO DEATH. Sad Ending of a Brilliant Wash ington Belle. Washington, April 26. SpeciaL The house committee on railways and ca nals Is struggling vigorously with several matters which have been comparatively neglected until a few days past, and the subcommittee is investigating the bills for canals. The great project of a ship ca nal from the Mississippi to Lake Superior has got so far as to demand serious atten tion, and Hon. Air. Kiefer of Minnesota, who introduced the principal bill, has se cured many favorable opinions for it. His proposed canal would sUtrt at St. Paul, follow the Mississippi to near its hood and then go through a chain of lakes to Duluth, thus describing a complete semici rcle. An other route advocated is up the St. Croix to its head and then across the summit level by way of numerous lakes, and a third leaves the St. Croix and follows up an eastern branch of it, running into Du luth from the south. All these are far north of the much discussed Hennepin ca nal, and it is easy to figure on the basis of existing transportation what the gains would be. Reduction In Transportation Rates. Last year about 1 1, 000, 000 tons of freight passed over the "Soo" canal, of which about 5,000,000 tons went to points on the proposed canaL At the ordinary reduction from railroad rates the canal would have saved $2,500,000 on that amount. It is claimed that the saving would be 10 cents per barrel on the 500, 000 barrels of flour shipped from Minneapolis on this route, and of course the cheaper transportation for coal would greatly increase its con sumption by the prairie states in the north west. The engineers' estimates of the ca nal vary all the way from $5,000,000 to nearly twice as much. The hearings and arguments on the pro posed Niagara ship canal are also quite in teresting. The bills introduced by Mr. Chickering of New York and Mr. Powers of Vermont are almost identical, and c general hearing preparatory to final action is to be had within a day or two. The proposition is for a ship canal from the great lakes to the Hudson.. Another and a rather surprising proposition is for an en larged canal from Lake Krie to the Ohio river to. start at a point near Erie, Pa., and terminate near Pittsburg. The pres ent bill, which provides only for a survey, was favorably reported to the Fifry-second congress from this committee, but not acted upon, and present indications are that all bills appropriating money for any new scheme will be ignored by this house. Financial Matters. The banking and currency committee cf the house has before it 14 bills for repeal ing the tax on state bank circulation, and yet those who have polled the house care fully are not yet able to say positively that they find a majority in favor of such re peal. Mr. Swanson found about 160 pres ent members in favor of repeal in various ways and reported that enough of the ab sentees were known to be of that line to give a safe majority. It appears, however, that about a third of those favoring the re peal do so on condition that state bank money shall be surrounded by various fed eral safeguards. In short, they would con sent to state banks of issue if they were somewhat better braced than the present national banks. In many sections of the west the state banks made a better show ing in last summer's panic than the na tional brinks, and this fact is being used for all it is worth in argument that tho present advantages of the state banks as to security for deposits might be united with the advantages of the national banks as to security for billholders, and thus an ideally perfect system established. The arguments pro and con before the committee and the documents filed in sup port thereof are enough to make a common man's head ache, and this appears to be one of the chief reasons why the measure makes so little progress. The average man, and therefore the average congressman, very soon tires of disquisitions on finance, and so far as an outsider can see the commit tee is little if any nearer to a decision than it was a month ago. Altogether there are 66 bills before this committee to make money plenty and the currency elastic. The committee has devoted the most earnest study and thought to Mr. Walker's bill to reorganize the system of providing a na tional currency, and just at present it seems to have a fair chance of being fa vored. The hot fight between the Alexandria and Mount "Vernon railroad and real estate owners as to the use of the reclaimed flats has been prolonged before the District committee and in the city generally until it has liecome a burden. However, the board of trade has at last decided over whelmingly against allowing the railroad to cross the flats, and this will probably setle it unless there is some sly work be fore the committee. A Sad Case. The Intelligence that the once beautiful and brilliant wife of Attorney General Williams had starved herself to death at her Oregon home excited general regret and much comment here. Although near 20 years have passed since she was the reigning queen of official society and vir tually mistress of social observances at the White House, yet she is remembered with admiration by every one who was then here. Her case is remarkable as that of a woman of beauty and talent whose -early life was stormy and troubled to a pitiful degree and her later years unspeakably .sad, and yet the middle period of her life brilliant and happy. When she went from Iowa to Oregon it would have seemed to an ordinary observer that a very retired life was all that remained to her, yet she married an eminent judge, came to Wash ington as the wife of a senator and often had occasion to extend social patronage to those who had derided her in early wom anhood. The end of it all was religious fanaticism, voluntary starvation and death in comparative obscurity. A Noticeable Stir. Although the advance members of Cox ey's army declare that it is the most peace ful and honest of organizations, and the correspondents who have been coming and going between here and the army verify the statement, and although most people try to laugh at the scare, there Is, Just the same, a noticeable stir of preparation, es pecially in the thinly settled suburbs. More than one citizen who says It is all nonsense to fear danger from such a crowd has been seen to take extra precautions with the fastenings of his windows and doors, and It is darkly hinted that there hi an" increase In the sale of small firearms and the general burnishing up of old ones. NOT A COXEY CROWD. Bottonlsm Go Throneh II are in a Special Train of Pullmans. The first of four of the Raymond & Whitcomb excursionists to the west from New England passed through Topeka just before noon today. The train con sists of six coaches, four sleepers, a din ing car and a baggage car. The party consists of sixty people in charge of G. A. Cook of Boston, and is divided into three parties twenty will go to Cali fornia and Alaska and. are out for seventy-five days; fifteen will go to Califor nia, north along the Pacific coast and back by Yellowstone park, and will gone sixty-eight days; twenty-five are out for sixty-two days, and will visit only Cali fornia.. The party is a gathering- of wealthy Boston, New York and Philadelphia people. The trains left Boston Monday morn ing, aad is not making rapid time. Stops of a day or two will begin as the com pany enters Colorado, and will continue to the end of the trip. No stops will be be made in Kansas. The trip will cost each of the excursionists in the neigh borhood of $1,500, tickets alone costing $675. ALL ALONG THE LINES. Railroad News Items Interesting: to Rail roaders and. the Public. II.

It is quite certain, though, that a mixed train will be put on the Anthony branch to restore passenger train service, as or dered by the state board of railroad com missioners and promised by the road. The local time will probably remain about the same. Beginning next Sunday there will be a few changes on the Santa Fe, but they will not affect this division.
