SECRETARY FOSTER SAYS HE HAS ALL THE MONEY HE WANTS. Presidential Nominations—Filibustering in the Honse—Deep Water Convention Adjourns—The Canadian Bonding Sys tem. Washington, January 13.—Secretary Foster said today that he had a large force at work collecting the information wanted by the ways and means commit tee as o the condition of the treasury. The exhibit which the Secretary will make will show that there will be ample funds in the treasury to meet all reason able demands, and enough to carry the incoming administration through till the meeting of the 53d Congress. Chairman Springer and other mem bers of the committee are of the opinion that there will be urgent need for more money early in Cleveland’s administra tion and that some steps will have to be taken to raise additional revenue. Repre sentatives Dockery and Sayers, who are leading members of the House appropri tion committee, and who have given the subject much attention and are familiar with the condition of the treasury, say that the next secretary of the treasury can get along until the regular session of Congress without any trouble. Speaker Crisp has decided to give the bankruptcy bill a day for its considera tion. The friends of the measure are, wivivxv'xv/^ mx/iiuou uu uv»iviv wiu/u now bill will pass the House unless its ene mies talk it to deaik. There is undoubt edly a large majority in its favor. In the House. Washington, January 13.—In the House today Mr. Beltzchoover of Penn sylvania moved the House go into com mittee of the whole for consideration of the private calendar. The Kepublicans resoited to filibustering tactics. The first few pages of the calendar were full of war claims measures and the Kepub licans not wishing them considered re frained from voting and left the House without a quorum. On roll-call a quo rum appeared: by vote of yeas 159, nays 8, and Mr. Beltzschoover’s motion was agreed to. The first bill on the calendar was for the relief of Hiram Johnson and others. The Republicans again resorted to fili bustering tactics and left the House without a quorum. After a couple of hours’ vain attempt to secure a quorum to vote upon the bill, the Democrats be came excited, and under the lead of Mr. Enlo« of Tennessee, attempted to force an adjournment. This would vacate the night session for consideration of private pension bills. The Kepublicans with the help of some Democrats, defeated the motioa to adjourn. The House then t' ok a recess until 8. At the evening session pension matters were discussed, but no action taken on any bill. Adjourned. In the Senate. Mr. Sherman, from the committee on foreign relations, reported back the Sen ate bill to extend to the North Pacific ocean the provision of the statutes for the protection of fur seals and other fur bearing animals and after a brief expla nation the bill was passed. Senator Hale gave notice that he would offer an amendment to the fortifications bill providing for the purchase of ground for commencing work on the fortifica tions on Cushing’s Isiand, Me., and pro viding for construction of gun and mor tar batteries as submitted by the Secre tary of War at a cost of $250,000. The establishment of a commission on the subject of “social vice” is contem plated in the bill introduced by Senator Prye. A commission of five persons is to "be created whose duty shall be to in vesngate social vice in an its puases, its relations to labor and wages, to marri age and divorce, its connection with pau perism, crime, etc.; also to inquire into practical results of legislation for the suppression of the evil in various states. At 2 the anti-option bill was taken up, the pending question being the amend ment to strike out the last proviso in section 2. The amendment was rejected and the proviso retained in the bill. The question recurred on agreeing to the amendment oft'ered by Mr. Daniel, w icli is printed in the bill as section 10. I n absence of Mr. Daniel the amendment went over without action. Mr. Vilas moved to amend the second section by adding the words “and does not, in good faith, intend to purchase and deliver articles contracted to be sold and delivered according to terms and re quirements of such contract.” The amendment went over and Mr. Wolcott moved the Senate proceed to the consid eration of the calendar. On this motion Mr. Washburn demanded the yeas and nays. Mr. Wolcott’s motion was defeated. Mr. Washburn said, on reflection, that he would withdraw his proposition to have the Vilas amendment go over till tomorrow. After discussion the amendment went over without action. Mr. Wilson oft'ered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the Secretary of the Treasury for a copy of the opin ion of the law officer of his department, under which lie is disbursing live mil lion souvenir coins to the Columbian Ex position, conditioned on Sunday closing. Adjourned. Deep Water Convention. The deep water tvay convention today ■adopted a plan of permanent organiza tion to carry forward the work of the convention. Resolutions were adopted, declaring that every consideration of na tional security, ational prosperity and national honor demands the construction o. a water way not less than 20 feet deep connecting the great lakes with the sea through American territory, and re questing Congress to promptly pass the House bill, which authorizes the Secre tary of War to have made surveys, ex aminations, and estimates of the cost of various practicable routes for such water ways. A committee was appointed to present resolutions to Congress. A resolution of sympathy for Mr. Blaine in his illness was adopted by a rising vote. A resolution was adopted approving “improvements of water ways and canal connections from the Mississippi and Ohio rivers to the great lakes, whose im portance will be so greatly increased when they shall be connected by a deep water channel to the Atlantic Ocean.” At the afternoon session, an executive committee was appointed, and the con vention adjourned sine die.

The President is still giving close con sideration to the subject of freights brought over the Canadian Pacific rail road. Two new points were discovered yesterday, viz.: That the original law specified that the consular seal system was to be applied to freights which wer the products of contiguous foreign coun tries only, and that by the Oanadiau law United States consular officers guilty of fraud in the United States revenues are not amenable to arrest as long as they remain in Canada. A large bulk of the freights handled by the Canadian Pacific railroad, and which comes into this country under consular seal, are the pro ducts of other foreign countries, notably Japan and China. Did this class of freights not enjoy the privilege of the consular seal sytem, they would enter this country at an American port and be transported by American railroads. These two new points are considered im portant as giving the President the pow er, if he chooses to exercise it, of sus pending the operation of the consular seal system without any action by Con gress. ROCKLAND ITEMS. A Golden Wedding-Burning of tlie Vinal haven—The Emmeline Will Go on the Route. [Special to the Press]. Rockland, January 13.—Steamer Vi nalhaven, plying between this city and Yinalhaven, was burned to the water’s awakened by the smoke and found the woodwork about the engine in flames.

Lowixi., Mass., January 13.—The body of General Butler reached here at 12.30 today, five hours late. A crowd of people of all ages waited in the station from 7.30, the time it was to reach here.

A Flea From the Disciples of Isaak Walton, BILL TO AMEND LAW RELATING TO PAUPER SETTLEMENTS. Institutions Which Wnqt Money—Anoth er Health Bill—The Matter of State Printing—York Water Company—Leg islative Doings. [Special to the Press.] Augusta, January 13.—From the nim rods and the disciples of gentle Isaak Walton, who hunt and fish through the woods and along the streams of the Rangeley Lake region, comes a plea for changes in the fish and game laws. First, the nimrods want September made an open time for deer. Now, from the first of September to the first of January is close time, in which no deer may be killed without the breaking of law. Perhaps it is not quite the thing to say that the request that it may be made lawfnl to kill deer in September comes from the true sportsman. It is, rainer, me aemanu or people wuu uve in the Rangeley r gion and who believe that the deer are becoming so many that this opportunity to hunt them in the pleasant days and warm nights of early autumn will not endanger the preserva tion of these graceful denigens of the forest while it will bring considerable additional revenue to the many people whosHliving depends more or less on the lavish expenditure of money by Bportsmen from outside the state. Of course, deer will be killed in September if the law is changed, but, say the friends of the measure, your true hunter prefers to chase big game in the late fall and winter. In September there will come the amateur, who will spend his money freely and will do little damage to the deer." So numerous have the deer now become that in the vicinity of Phillips, in Franklin c unty during the last sum mer they got into the grain fields and did considerable harm. The lovers of rod and line have several requests. First they want all fishing in the streams emptying into the Rangeleys prohibited. Near Rangeley village there is a hat hery maintained by private sub scription, and which annually places in the streams several hundred thousand young trout. These little fellows re main in the small streams until they have attained their growth, when they seek the deep waters of the lakes and be come lawful prey for the angler. But if Tom, Dick and Harry and all their friends are to be permitted to catch these youngsters, while they are still living in the small streams, the gentle men who are now trying to keep up the stock of trout in the Rangeleys say they might as well give up the job. If a law is passed to prohibit the taking of fish in these Rangeley streams, similar legisla tion will be asked for the Parm chenee region. Up in the Rangeley region is Quimby pond and it is a peculiar little bit of water in that country of deep lakes in that nowhere is it more than 12 feet in aepth. The p nd contains several hundred acres and has been a favorite lishing ground with those whose only object is the poor satisfaction they get in hauling out the small trout and leaving them to die on the shores. It is said that great numbers of the fis have been slaughtered in this manner. To stop this wanton destruction, it is proposed to secure the passage of a law which shall forbid fishing on Quimby pond with bait and make all anglers there use arti ficial flies. This, it is thought, would be a sufficient protection to prevent the ex tinction of the fish. Another proposed law would stop fresh water fishing through the ice. In favor of this measure it is said that such a method is unsportsmanlike, and that it is of no importance as a business, while it decreases the stock of fish. The friends of the measure say it is in line with tne policy of keeping the lakes and streams well sunnlied with trout so that they may be fished at the proper seasons and serve to bring to Maine those visitors who leave money behind them, and thus help to support many of the inhabitants of the region t ey visit. As an illustration of what might be done to increase the siz ' and number of trout, the fishermen instance the case of the growth of trout at Keddington. Here a great saw mill was erected not long ago, and in order to handle the logs an artificial pond was made by damming the stream on the banks of which the mill stands. In this stream were thous ands of small trout. Now, with the feeding ground afforded them by the pond, they have grown to be big fellows, many weighing a pound or more. \ In Lincoln county, some people evi dently want to hunt deer, but they are willing to wait until there are deer snough to be hunted. So they petition Eor a close time on deer in that county Eor the next five years. And here is another bill relating to 3sh and game, which, if possible, might aid good women in getting small boys :o Sunday school and larger boys to jhurch. It was presented by Senator Shaw, and is a bill :o amend section 27, chapter 30, R. S. so that said section shall read: “Sunday is i, close time, on which it is not lawful to runt, kill or destroy game or birds of my kind, or take, catch, kill or fish in iny manner for any fish within the wat ;rs of this state, under the pena ties im posed therefor during other close time; jut the penalties already imposed for die violation of the Sunday laws are not repealed or diminished. Concerning Legal Proceedings. Mr. Drew of Fort Fairfield introduced today a bill to amei d the law relating to pauper settlements (R. S., chapter 24, see. 1) by adding “In suits or actions igainst towns, involving pauper settie ents, it shall constitu e a good and sufficient defense in all cases, wherein he defendant town proves that a pauper ilthough once having had a settlement in said town, has subsequently resided be yond the limits of the state for five con jecuti ve ears. An act to amend chapter 71, R. S., re lating to sales of real estate by license jf court, introduced, by Mr. Drew this morning provides for such changes in the statute as will provide that in any action brought to contest the validity of any such sale hv the h*ir as others claiming under the deceased; the wife or her heirs, in case of a sale of her estate by her husband, or by the ward or person claiming under him, no such sale shall be avoided on account of any irreg ularity in the proceedings, if it appears. I. That the license was granted by a court of competent jurisdiction and that the dee was duly executed and recorded. II. That the person licensed gave the bond and notice of the ti me and place of sale required by law. III. That the premises were sold in such manner and within such time as the license authorized and are held by one who purchased them in good faith. Institutions Which Want Money. The demands for state aid for various institutions are coming in fast and the Bangor people made their requisition for money for the new insane hospital to day. For the hospital, and two educa tional institutions resolves were referred today appropriating $288,000. Mr. Adams of Bangor introduced the resolve in favor of the Eastern tyaine Insane Hospital at Bangor. It provides that $250,000 shall be appropriated to wards the erection of the hospital to be expended between now and March, 1895, and that a commission to be known as the Eastern Insane Hospital commission he appointed by the Governor to take immediate steps to construct the hospital on the site already purchased. At the Madawaska Training School here are now 70 scholars in a room 20 feet square. The school, which is locat ed at Fort Kent, has entirelg outgrown its present quarters. Today, Major Dickey presented a resolve appropriat ing $4000 for each of the next two years to build an addition to the school build ing and completing the boarding house. Mr. Morrill of Farmington introduced a resolve appropriating ;p±o,uuu iui ccwrn of the next two years for a new main school building of the Farmington Nor mal School. The Eastern Maine Eye and Ear In firmary at Bangor petitions for an annual appropriation of $1000. A nother Health Bill. Another bill relating to quarantine has appeared, but its purpose is not to guard against disease. It is to establish rates of wages to be paid to people kept in durance because of the dangerous sick ness of others. Mr. Sylvester of Lisbon introduced the bill. It provides that any wage-earner, deprived of his regular em ployment by being quarantined because of any contagious disease from which he is not personally suffering, shall receive from such town for such loss of time a sum not greater than $1.50 a day; pro vided that no person shall receive a greater sum per day than his daily wages. To Re-tleot Senator Halo. Both branches of the legislature have passed an order that the legislature shall proceed to the election of an United States Senator at noon on Tuesday of next week. York Water Company. An act to incorporate the York Shore Water Company names Josiah Chase, Lindley M. Webb and others as corpora tors. The company proposes to supply the town of York with water from Chase’s pond. The capital stock is not more than $100,000. The Matter of State Printing. An order.was referred to the commit tee on state printing today, directing that committee to inquire in o the expe diency of providing by law that the printing and binding of all reports and other documents printed by authority of the state be done under the direction of the governor and council and that the contracts for printing and binding such reports and other documents be severally awarded to the lowest bidder therefor and report by bill or otherwise. The or der was first passed, and then on motion of Mr. Harris of East Machias the vote was reconsidered and the order referred. In the Senate. In the Senate today a petition pre sented by Senator Clark of Somerset and signed by H. L. Colby and 49 others asks the state” to appropriate $1000 for repair ing a portion of the road leading from Skowhegan to Quebec. The petition represents that with the money that can be appropriated by the county commis sioners the road cannot be kept in fit condition for travel. Senator Winslow introduced a bill to the effect that no moneys raised by towns or apportioned to towns from the state treasury for the support of com mon schools shall be expended in any school not wholly and directly under the direction and control of the school olfi — „ C *-l, in nrliiolv no 1 rl oaKaaI VC* located and that all acts inconsistent herewith be repealed. Senator Seiders of Cumberland pre sented a bill to authorize the Metallic Setting Co., by a majority vote of its stockholders, to change the par value of its shares of stock from $100 to $10, and to increase the number of shares of stock to correspend with the par value of its shares, provided no restriction is made in the amount of its capital stock. Senator Wood introduced the follow ing order: That the committee on state printing and binding be directed to as certain and report the number of the repr rts of the several state departments now printed and bound from year to year, and the annual expense of printing and binding the same. THE DEADLOCK BROKEN. The Nebraska Legislature Getting Harmo niously Down to Work. Lincoln, Neb., January 18.—The deadlock in the legislature was broken this morning, and the two houses met in joint session.

[Special to the Press.] Saco, January 18.—The case of Wil lard H. Ennis vs. Henry Edgerly, to re cover $500 for the death of a horse while in the defendant’s pasture last June, was tried in the Supreme Court today. Ennis is a Boston travelling man whose home is in Limerick and Edgerly also belongs there, while a good part of the popula tion of .Hollandville was in court as wit nesses. The question was whether or not Charles Holland, who had charge of the Ennis horse and sent her to pasture, did or did not agree that defendant should not be held responsible for any damage done the mare. Holland claimed he did not but witnesses who heard the trade made testified that ho did. The jury found a verdict for the defendant. George F. Haley of Biddeford for plain tiff ; Fairfield & Moore of Saco for de fence. The jurors were excused until Monday and court suspended until that time. Judge Foster will be present all this term.

Constans is credited by nearly every . one with being at the bottom of the at tack upon Carnot, He is known to have a bitter feeling towards the President on account of his ejection from the cabinet. All eyes are turned toward Constans as the coming master, if not already the master, of the situation, from the Repub lican standpoint. The other prominent figure is Saussier, whose control of the military in Paris would give him, in the event of a upris ing, almost unlimited opportunity to gratify his own ambition. Agents of the Duke of Orleans have hinted at a ducal or princely title and enormous revenues that would be the re ward of treachery on the part of Gen. Saussier to the republic. But Gen. Saussier is immovable in his fidelity to duty. The evidence so far in the Panama trial is regarded as assuring conviction. The report of M. Flory, the government accountant, contends that the responsi bility for the Panama frauds and decep tion rests upon the wnole board of Pana ma directors, because, having squander ed the share capital, they concealed the real situation by false statements in or der to obtain subscriptions and protect their own interests. The public are already beginning to discuss the sentences that will be passed upon the De Lesseps’ and their associ ates in the event of conviction. London, January 13.—The Times cor respondent in Paris says: “M. Flory, at Wednesday’s examination, estimated tho Panama Canal Company reoeipts at 1,434,000,000 francs, of which 199,000,000 were swallowed up by the expenses of the management, 249,000,000 by interest on coupons, 560,000,000 by canal opera tions.
