The House Will Consider the Ques tion of Making It a Special Order. After that Will Probably Come the Debate on the Tariff. Mepresentative Springer HCas a Change for the Worse-What Nils Physicians Say of His Caee. WAsnremmioN, March 6.-Silver and the tariff will be the leading features of con. gressional procedure this week. The con test over the free silver question will begin in the house to-morrow, when the anti silver democrats will oppose the adoption of the report of the rules committee, making the Bland bill the special order for a specified period. The opponents of free coinage on the democratic side have vigor. ously but vainly urged the republican minority to join them in opposition to the consideration of the bill. It is now con ceded that the special order will almosteer tainly be adopted. The anti-free coinage men say this is but the beginning of the fight, and they will use every possible means to defeat the passage of the bill itself. Leaders of the house are anxious to se cure speedy action on the appropriation bills and have all these meacures now pending pnssed before the discussion of the tariff is entered upon. For this reason Monday will not be devoted exclusively to the silver order. It is the present purpose to devote a greater portion of the day to the pension appropriation bill and the army appropriation bill, in order to clear the decks for the tariff debate. McMillan (Tenn.) will open the tariff discussion Tuesday, if no deviation is made from the programme on account of the army appro priation bill. Other speakers will follow in rapid succession, and the whole week will bepccupied by the tariff, except Sat urday afternoon. which will be devoted to eulogies on the late Representative Gamble, of South Dakota. In the senate the pure food bill is the. pending order. Mr. Call has given notice of his intention to address the senate to morrow on the subject of railroad interfer ence in the Florida elections, and Mr. Dolph wishes to deliver a speech Friday on Senator Stanford's bill to provide for a circulating medium. The long expected debate on the reciprocity resolutions which are now on the table may begin some day this week. It is unlikely any general ap propriation bills will come before the senate during the week. SPItIN G ER IS WO RSEi. Periods of Delirium More Frequent and a Tendency to Stupor. WASINGToN, March 6. - Congressman Springer is worse to-day. There is a recur rence of the violent form of erysipelas which had once almost disappeared. To 'night thd left side of his face is badly swollen and the eye nearly closed. The periods of delirium are also more frequent and there is a slight tendency to stupor. a new phase in his condition, but one which physicians declare is not particularly alarming. The attending physicitne held a consul tation late to-nicht. At its conclusion Dr. Vincent, of bpringfield, Ill., Soringer's family physician, made the following statement: "There is no occasion for imme diate alarm. Mr. Springer is woase to-day. but that does not necessaiily mean a fital result must ensue. A change vuight le ex pected in the run of this disease. Through out yesterday the symptoms were favorable, but a change took pice for the worse in the afternoon and continued during the night. While he slept considerable last night it was is broken, restless sleep. There is to day increased development of erysipilas, attended by delirium and coma. The ag gravation of erysipilas while, of course, a matter of gravity, is not necessarily ala: m ing. It only shows there is not sufficient vitality to resist disease. It shows low vitality and lack of physical vigor. The delirium, of course, is induced by the disturbed condition of the nerve cen ters. Coma or stupor frequently makes its appearance after he has been talking in an acmless way about the businessof the house ,or4 ta if b"1ill. After. 1.. .i...._ _- in .. n or raresitouts. Atter lie drope off into this state, however, it is easy to aronse him again, when ho will talk quite intelligently for nwhile, but after it conversation ceases he lapses into that condition again. He is a very sick msan-thete is no doubt of that; but it is not iniminenstly tdangerous, in toy opinion. Even should the disease termi nato fatally, he would probably pass into a comatose state and remain in that con lition for possibly a day or two before eteath ensued. More Money for the Fair.

WAnurryno'yz. March 6.-Secretary illaine said yedterday, in response to inquiries, that he would make no reply to the, oriti cism0 passed upon him by Mrs. Nevins, nor would he comply with the request of Mary Nevins that he make public in full her let tern, from which he recently published briol extracts. Ib is understood among Mr. Jilaiie's friends that he is heartily nick of the whole business and extremely sorry that he ever attempted to wash his family linen in the presence of the public. Mr. Blaine's friends are astonished that he should have, adopted this course, and must have imagined that when he opened his mouth the enemy would take fright and hunt for a convenient hole in which to hide itself. Now that the enemy declines to de anything of the sort, and retorts very tart ly, Mr. Blaine terceivee that he ri not to have lt all his own way, and that on the other side there is some very effective am munition which has not yet been die chlarged. Secretary Illuine's friends think be has made one of the greatest mistakes of his lie, and regret very much that he should have rushed into print without con sultation with any of those friends, who would have been glad to advise him. There is much curiosity here to see the letters which young Blaine wrote his wife durinr their courtship and the two years following. The young man has no friends in Washington, where he is well known and where his pusillanimity has been wade conspicuous in a thousand ways. Mary Nevins is well known in Washing tol, where she spent one or two seasons just previous to the time of meeting youuii Air. Blaine in August, 1888. She was yery popular in society and made a hit by hei beauty and cleverness at an amateur per formance of the opera "Paul and Virginia," where she appeared in a gauzy and become ing costume, of which silk tights were the most attractive part. 11er acquaintances in Washington have generally bean of the opinion that she was, as Mr. rIlairie says in his published statement, mainly responsible for tne mnarriege of her self and .James G. BIlaine, Jr., and therefore little sympathy has been ex pressed for her during the progress of the proceedings for divorce. Neither has her husband been an object of sympathy, be cause, while it niay be true that he was "snore ninned against than sinning," his unpopularity and ungentlemanly conduct left bhe without friends or defenders. The I young span has taken particular pains to stake himself conspicuous during the past two or three years, and on the very night that the decree of divorce was announced by the Dakota judge made his appearance lat several entertainments here, evidently regarding himself as something of a social lion. It is not known what future his father has decided upon for him. He is at present said to bee clerk in the office of the Pennsylvania Railroad company in Phila. delphia at a small salary, and now that he is divorced his father will find a more lu crative and congenial place for him.

Sullivan Tays He Has Given the r Talkers Their Chance to Fight. .t It Must Be Queensbury Rules to y Prevent 'them Run ning Away. a A Startling 'iteport Cnmes From New i Orleans to the Eifect That Maher Was Drugged. e MINNEAPOT15, March 6.-An associated press reprrsentativo this afternoon inter k viewed Sullivan on Mitchell's answer to a his challenge. Sullivan said: "The an swer is on a par with his entire attitude tpward ins. 'Ihe assertion that he stood nsq off twice, extracting a forfeit both a twmes, is untrue, as the records will prove. e These men came here full of blow and a bombast, protessing to have plenty of money to back eithoer or both to fight me, a knowing my hands were tied. One was called by Charles Johnson, of Brooklyn, - who deposited $2,C,10J with the New York a Herald, the deposit remaining up nearly a y year. They hammered away at ine with all r sorts of challenges and bluftf for two years and now that I have the opportunity and time to fight they weaken at my challenge and offer all sorts of paltry, unmanly ex ex cuses. Mitchell says I want everything. I a don't. I am sincere. My challenge was e issued, but I will make any concession in ' reason, in order to meet Mitchell, Slavin or any other fighter. The only thing I in - sist upon are the outside bet, 3 and Marquis of Queenshury rules r to govern, and the match to take place be tween the middle of August and the first of September. In this I'm justified. My t season with Mr. Harrison ends June 4 and we will resume Sept. 12. I must have an outside bet of proper dimensions to justify preparation for the contest. Queenebury I i regard as the only fair rules, as under them ai man must fight, not run away. If r Mitchell. Slavin, Corbett or the rest of them mean business let them act, not talk and cry about my weight, which is a disad vantage rather than an advantage, and simply stamps Mitchell's assertions as I ridiculous and laughable. My ultimatum is made. Sly challenge, which is entirely my own, is out. If these men mean busi ness they know where to find me; if not they had better cross the pond home and seek English pence rather than American idollars." Duncan B. Harrison, referred to by Mitchell as the author of Sullivan's chal lenge, said to-night: "Sullivan himself was I the author of the challenge, as can be t proven beyond " doubt." Continuing, he said: "Regarding Slavin's avowed willing ensassto fight, it is peculiar that iynmedi ately on Sullivan's arrival in San Fran iseco Slavin made a match with Jackson, I the man he had professed to ignore, thus placing an obstacle in the way of meeting Sullilvan. Ube truth of the whole mutter is, Sullivan has called the bluff; they know it thoroughly, and are offering all sorts of excuses to evade the issue." A Purse of $75,000 to Meet Mitchell. Nrw ORLEANS, March F.-The mail train leaving to-night had aboard a letter ad dressed to John L. Sullivan containing articles of agreement for a contest during the first week of October with Mitchell, the Olyuiphic club agreeing to give the winner Corbett Ready to tweet Sullivan. Ncw YoRtK, March 6.-Saturday night at Philadelphia Corbett said he would fight Sullivan and would put up $2,500 forfeit Monday morning, go into training at once and fight at anytime during July or August. DOPED BiY IIIS FRIENDS. A Sensational Report to the Effect That Muaher was Drugged. COICAoO, March 6.-The Inter-Ocean's special from New Orleans says: The cat is out of the bag, and among the few already "on" there is a howl, the like of which has not been heard since the memorable "throw" in the Mitchell-Lablanche fake in Frisco in 18i11. The "double-cross" in the vernacular of the street was worked in such a manner as to make the few on the inside risk enough forever to bear the fistic ostra cism which is likely to ensue, should the evidence in the case ever establish their guilt. Probably never in the history of pugilism has so deep-laid and adroitly worked a plot been perpetrated on the pub lic.
