Washington. Dec. 14. Mr. Lodge (Mass.) made an effort in the senate yesterday to secure an immediate vote upon his immi gration bill, which Is substantially the same measure that was passed by the Fifty-fourth congress and vetoed by Pres ident Cleveland. Mr. Allen (Neb.) ob jected to an immediate vote and suggest ed that the final vote on the amendments and the bill be taken, on Monday, Janu ary 17, at 3 p. m. This suggestion was accepted by Mr. Lodge and the order for a vote at that time was made. Mr. Gor man, chairman of the Democratic steering committee, presented an order, which was adopted, rearranging some of the commit-, tee assignments of some of the Demo cratic members, made necessary by the incoming of some new members. Mr. Butler (N. C) spoke at length upon amendments he had offered to the bill which he had previously introduced pro viding for a postal savings bank system. Such a system would, in his opinion, in sure greater comfort in the homes of the plain people of the land, as a great ma jority of them would certainly become depositors in such banks. This would cultivate among them thrift and economy and enable them easily to provide for themselves in illness and in old age, which was another argument in favor of such a system. Mr. Butler argued that if the system would be established there would never be another bond issue by the gov ernment in time of peace. It would giv men of small means an opportunity to in crease their capital; wouid place a greater amount of money in circulation and afford benefits to all of the people of inestimable value. A bill providing for the erection of an addition to the public building at Los Angeles, Cal., to cost $250,000, was passed. Mr. Gorman (Md.) of the Democratio steering committee presented an orde making some changes in the Democratic representation in standing committees of the senate. The order provided that Mr. Jones (Ark.) be appointed chairman of the committee on private land claims; Mr. Daniel, chairman of the committee on corporations in the District of Columbia; Mr. Turpie, chairman of the committee to investigate the condition of the Poto mac river front at Washington: Mr. Berry of the committee on woman suffrage; Mr., Gray, chairman of the committee on ad ditional accommodation for the library or congress; Mr. Pasco (Fla.). chairman of the committee on the five civilized tribes of Indians. Other senators were assigned to committees as follows: Mr. Daniel (Va.), to the finance; Mr. Mills (Tex.), to the committee on com merce; Mr. Pettus (Ala.), to the judiciary; Mr. Gorman (Md.), to District of Colum. bia; Mr. Mallory (Fla.), to public health and national quarantine: Mr. Walthall (Miss.), to rules; Mr. Money (Miss.), to agriculture and forestry, rail roads, postoflice and post roads, public buildings and grounds and geological sur vey; Mr. Turley (Tenn.), to private lanil claims, privileges and elections, transpor tation routes to the seaboard, education and labor and patents. The order was adopted without debate. Mr. Wilson (Wash.) presented a resolu tion directing the civil service commis sion to transmit to the senate a statement by fiscal year's since 1SW0, showing the to tal number of persons examined, the total number passed and the total number ap pointed in the several branches of the government since, and the total number of persons on the eligible lists of the sev eral branches of the civil service at the beginning of each of those fiscal years. The resolution was agreed to and the sen ate adjourned. THE HOUSE. Entire Session Wasted in a. Personal Discussion. Washington, Dec. 14. Excepting the re porting of the legislative and executive and judicial appropriation bill, the house did no public business yesterday. The en tire session was consumed in adjusting a personal dispute between Mr. Hepburn of Iowa and Mr. Norton of Ohio, which grew out of a controversy that occurred last week during the debate on the pension bill. The point at issue was as to whether a certain word used by Mr. Norton, but which he afterwards disclaimed any in. tention of using, should appear in the permanent record. The house by a party vote, 136 to 131, sustained Mr. Hepburn. Appropriates $21,562,425. Washington. Dec 14.

Kansas City, Mo., Dec. 14. Organ ized labor circles are agog over a de mand for $50,000 indemnity made on the Armour Packing company by a joint committee representing Anchor Feder ation, the Fireman's Union and the unions of beef, pork and sheep butch ers, in submitting a proposition looking to a settlement of pending troubles and the withdrawal of the boycott on the Armour products. Leading men in the trades unions In the wo Kansas Citys say that the joint committee representing live unions acted without authority because the settlement of the troubles was a mat ter that should have been left with the two central bodies, the Industrial Council in this city and the Trades As sembly in Kansas City, Kan. Further more, they declare that the demand for the indemnity was wholly inconsistent with the demands of organized labor in its fight against the Armour com pany. At a later called meeting of the two main unions of the two Kansas Citys. the indemnity action was denounced as irregular, and a committee was ap pointed to treat with the Armours with a view of adjusting the matter. The trouble originated in 1S93, when the Armour firemen struck and issued a boycott against the firm. The com pany retaliated by discharging several hundred union men from its other de partments. After the strike was final ly declared off. Armours agreeing to employ the old men, the unions claim ed that all had not been given their places, and the boycott was again put into force and has not since been re moved. UNION OF CL0AKJ1AKERS.

The startling discovery has been made that the il luminating gas used in this city con tains from IS to 28 per cent of deadly carbon monoxide.
