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
Mr. Gorman (Md.) of the Democratio
steering committee presented an orde

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.
Entire Session Wasted in a. Personal
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.

as reported to the house by the commit
tee on appropriations carries a total of
$1 562 425. being JTsO.Sul less than the esti

for is 10.000, being 198 less than the num
ber estimated for and 23 less than the
number provided for in the current law.

They Demand an Indemnity from the
Armour Packing Co.
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
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

New York, Dec. 14. Secretary Ko
palowitz of the executive board of the
United Brotherhood of Cloakmakers.
announce! that a national union of
cloakmakers, with at first a member
ship of 25.000, will be formed before
the first of the year.
The unions of Chicago, Boston, Bal
timore, Philadelphia, St. Louis and
Cincinnati favor it.
The nucleus of the national body will
be the organization in this city, which
has a membership of 8.000..
When the national union is formed
strikes, which will tie up the entire
cloak-making industry of the country,
will be ordered to enforce demands for
the abolition of the sweating system
and for a ten hour work day.
Russell Sage Says That Ha ia Not
the Owner.
New York, Dec. 14. A new financial
journal, the Herald and Maritime
Press, made its appearance in Wall
street today.
The paper is a financial review and
was said to be the property of liussell
Sage. Mr. Sage, however, denies that
he is the owner or that he has an own
ership interest in the publication. The
editor, H. C. Brace, he explained today,
is a friend, that is all.
San Francisco City Coroner Makes a
Discovery Which Accounts
for 66 Deaths.
San Francisco, Dec. 14. 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. Even if a window is
left open in a room Where the gas is
escaping it will not save the inmates,
as the gas sinks to the floor.
During this year there were 66 deaths
by gas poisoning in this city alone, and
for the last four years there has been
an average of a death a week from this
cause. In England, where the law lim
its the amount of carbon monoxide in
gas to 7 per cent, there were but three
deaths this year due to gas. The coro
ner held inquests yesterday on two gas
victims, and censured the gas compa
nies in both cases.

Secured by the Railroads Which. Dis

New York, Dec. 14. According to the
Herald the trunk line railroads have
succeeded in obtaining control of nearly
the entire water front of Greater New
York. It is claimed that independent
lighterage men are not allowed to touch
at their docks in many cases. In other
cases the railroads, it is asserted, dis
criminate against independent boat
men, allowing them only two cents a
hundred pounds on freight. It is also
announced that many of the lighterage
and barge concerns are going out of
business on account of the alleged dis
Sister of the Author is Dying at
Chicago, Dec. 14. A special to the
Chronicle from Toronto, Ont., says:
Janet Carlyle Hanning. sister of the
great Thomas Carlyle and the last sur
viving member of the family, is dying
at the residence of W. J. Laing, her
son-in-law, in this city. She is 85 years

hope of her recovering, and her death
may take place at any hour.
Household Gods.
The ancient Greeks believed that the
Penates were the gods who attended to
the welfare and prosperity of the fami
ly. They were worshiped as household
gods in every home. The household
god of today is Dr. King's New Discov
ery. For consumption, coughs, colds
and for all affections of Throat, Chest
and Lungs it is invaluable. It has been
tried for a quarter of a century and is
guaranteed to cure, or money returned.
No household should be without this
good angel. It is pleasant to take and
a safe and sure remedy for old and
young. Free trial bottle at Swift &
