THU LOUD POSTAL BILL UNDKR FIRE IH THE HOUSE. nQOROrs ATTACKS ON THE MEASCRE MADE PT SfESSRS QlTe-JO. CI-TMlNe-JR AND JU-UMOH VU KT!- AND OTHERS DEFEND IT? A VOTE TO n*B TAKEN TO-DAY. [BT T__X_*_FH TO THB TTUBrNB.] Washington. Jan 6.-The so-called Loud Postal ?sill championed in the House of Representatives by Mr Loud, of San Francisco, came up again to <jv bv virtue of a special order, snd was the sub? ject ot a lively If not acrimonious running debate. ?The measure, becauae of certain crudities snd dis criminations, haa encountered the orposhion of publishers in all perta of the country, snd this op? position was voiced In a most vigorous manner hy R?preaenta.tive Quigg. of New-York, and others, who, though favoring some reforms in the present .etond-class mall service, are yet Justly reluctant to support so sweeping and radical an advance In rates as that urged hy Mr. Loud and other eritioB of the present system. Mr. Qulgg and his allies see in the Ix>ud measure an effort to crlprle the pub? lishers of newspapers and serials by depriving them of certain mall privileges which have of re? cent year* heired materially to cheapen the cost of production and to enlarge In the public Interest tbs circulation of newspaper and periodical litera? ture throughout the United States. Mr. Qulgg's speech wa* received with marked attention and drew a round of applause from the galleries. A vote on the bill will be taken to-morrow afternoon. Mr. Qulgg said that the author of the bill had been wofuliy misled by the etatement that this class of matter was helng transmitted at a cost of 8 cents a pound, and that, therefore, this amount would be saved. The fallacy of the con? clusion lay In the fact that the gentleman made no allowance for Axed charges In the postal service. The bill. If enacted Into law, would not dispense with a single postmaster, clerk, raliway postal clerk, or a single mile of mail service. Al! these would remain and continue to Increase whether or not the class of matter in question was kept out of the malls The only possible saving under the bill would he rhe in...-.finite amount actually paid to tht* railroad cotnpa..;* ?< for carrying the matter. Mr. Quigg contended that the bill Jeopardized the In? terests of newspapers, newsdealers, printers and a whol* long list of trades ahd Industries allied with the publishing business. Mr. Kyle 'Dcm., Mlss.V a member of the Com? mittee on Postofflces and Fostroads. spoke In sup? port of the MIL He said that no measure pending In Congress within his knowledge had been the occasion of so much interest as this. The eonimlt tee-room contained a great mass of letters from presidents of colleges, ministers of the Gospel, busi? ness men and others urging the passage of the Mil In the interest of morality, economy, good government and clean business. Mr. Burton (Rep., Ohiol favored the bill, and Mr. Johnson (Rep., eal.) opposed lt ta one of his char? acteristic speeches. The latter raised a laugh et the expense of Mr. Burton, whom he apostro phizeel as "the statesman from Cleveland who had basked in the smiles of Mark Hanna." Mr. Bromwel! (Rep.. Ohio) supported the bill In a speech of some length. The necessity for the bill, he said, lay first tn the state of the Government's finances, which demanded a reduction of expenses wherever possible, and serene! and principally, the duty -L'onsrress owed to the youth of the country to prorect lt from the demoralising influences of the tratshy literature and worse that ls distributed Woadcast over the land through the malls at the cost of a cent a pound. Really valuable literature?, school books, for Instance, he said, did not circulate at p. cent a pound; the Holy Scriptures had no such privilege unless they were cm up into parts and l^sned aa a serial in order to defraud the revenues <f the Government; tracts and similar publications paid a cents a pound, while the "Old Sleuth" scri.-s paid one cent a pound. Mr Ogden (Dem.. La.l favored the bill. The opposition to the bill wits turther expressed In ? vigorous speech bjr Mr. Cummings ilum., M. Y.l. He said tnat the claim made by the friends of the bill that it hael tho support of the newspaper profession because of Its indorsement bv the News pai?er Publishers' Association. If weeli founded, might have caused him to swallow his convictions and vote for the bill. But the association repre? sented but 1<"1 out of over l.tvo dallv newapapera of the country. Eighty-five ppr cent of ihe news? paper circulation In the T'nited States, he said, waa that of papers of less than MM copies, and lt was against this class of publications that the bil! would operate. .***: ?*?to"J?' 'RT-. N- Y ) asked Mr. Cummings ir ne-, thought the Post office Department ought to be a circulating libra ry "I believe." Mr. Cummings answerr-d vehemently, that the Postoffw Department ought to obey the law. and that the Postmaster-General should not do as the Secretary of State has done, and sav to Congress: > cu ran tmm , ]aw b?, wf.-n (]n M wa please about putting lt into execution.' " (Ap. p'r,use. i Mr. Cummings read letters from owners and editors of trade, religion-.. aRrlcultur.il and other publications, urging the defeat of the bill He protested against irs pa*sa_e in the name of thou? sands of employe*, whnee m?ans of livelihood wou.d be Injuriously sffected bv Its operation. Times are hard, he said, "and this bill will not tend to make them easier. It ls a bil) drawn In ihe Interest of loose bonus; lt Is a hill drawn In the Interest* of express companies, and don't von forget lt. X.nder cover of correcting a single'al leged abuse In Its operation, you are asked to strike down a law that has produced more books and Cone more for literature than any other law ever en a-ted. Members on the Democratic side of the House should remember that free literature |? a part of free trade, and let no Free-Trader here vote to put a protective tariff upon hooks and newspapers." At the conclusion of Mr cur-m1n-R.? rf.marks the committee arose, and at 4 40 0>lock the House adjourned until to-morrow. THE SENATE REASSEMBLES. VO RT-SINT-JX!

IN THE CYCLING WORLD. TO REFORM EASTERN* TRACK RACING. THE BOARD OF TRADE ANNt'AI. MEETING?A DEAD IN TIRES CLOUD -HOW 1HDOOR RAC? ING CAN PK MAI'E SKCIRK-DAILY CYCUE Ml ETINGS I'ROVOSKD The track-owners of the East have almost made up their minds to try to make some needed reforms In cycle racing The owners think that the riders have had too much of a good thing and that somerhlng should be done to protect the interests of the public and the track-owners. A meeting of the owners an I managers of tracks mav be held In this city within a few days, at which lt ls said that representatives will be present from the Manhattan Beach track, the Charl-*, River tr*ick at Boston, the Tioga track at Philadelphia, the track at Springfield nnd the other Important places* in the Eastern district, and an attempt will be made to arrange a circuit avoiding as far as possi? ble a conflict of dates. The president of the National Cycle Board of Trade has Just Issued a call for the annual meeting of the stockholders, to be held at the offices of the corporation. No. 271 Broadway, on January 20 at 19'M a. m. In accordance with the usual cus? tom, lt ls expected that this meeting will ba ad? journed to the week of the National Cycle Exhi? bition which is to be held at the rirand Central Palace of Industry, New-York, February 6 to 13, and lt ls likely that this adjourned moating will bc held in the Concert Hall of the Grand Centra'. Palace on February 10. At this meeting the elec? tion of thirteen directors and of the officers for the ensuing year will be held, new members will be elected and other business of importance to the association will be, transacted. Lack of proper management In impromptu races and road runs causes endless discussion, and thia will contlnuo to be the case until some means of conducting properly these races haa been devised. In Brooklyn the riders are quarrelling over the annu? al race to Coney Island, while the races to Yonkere and Tarrytown from this city on New Year's morn? ing caused more complaint. In the latter race lt was asserted that two members of the Riverside Wheelmen. Messrs. Bedell and Tomllnson, started ahead of time, and secured the bottles of wine of? fered, to the first riders to arrive in the new year. Now, Bedell and Tomllnson, who rode a tandem, say that they did start ahead of time, and they offer an apology to the public and to their club. Tne pair say that they started as soon as they had reeeiveel their checking numbers, whleh waa at 11:53 p. m. The race consequently belongs to Goodman and Brown. With the approach of the Cycle Show, to be held In the Grand Central Palnce, the actual cycle busi? ness of the year begins. Many important deals of interest to the trade are being made, and many more are contemplated. The organization of the alleged rubber tire trust, to be run on lines similar to that of the Dunlop Syndicate In England, has caused some comment in the trade. Whatever has been dorie has been accomplished quietly, however. and little positive Information can be secured. One deal which was made yesterday may or may not have any bearing on the subject, but the Informa? tion regarding it is authentic. R. L. Coleman, pres? ident of the Western Whee! Works, has clo?ed a deal by which the Dunlop tires will be fitted to al. Crescent wheels for UR. This, of course, wll; give customers an option on other tire**, if they desire. The tire is a double detachable tube. The Florida Amusement Company ls arranging for a three days' bicycle meeting to be held at Jacksonville. Fla., from January IR to 2R. There will le six races on the first two days and Ave races on the third dav. Two match ra~es between Linton and Michael are announced. The contests will take pl.-ic at Panama Park. vice-President Voorhls of the Riverside Wheel men has glv^-n Indoor bicycle racing much thought. He ls of the opinion that such races can be made as safe, or almost as safe, as racing on the banked tracks outdoors. Mr. Voorhls believes that strips of cork can be laid around the corners of the tracks In the different armories, and that If lt Is done prop? erly few slips and accidents will occur. He says that small wire nails can be used which will not In? jure the floors a particle. He thinks that cork will be better than canvas. C. A. Benjamin, the manager of E. C. Bald, was ir. the city yesterday. He says that he has travelled considerably lately In Ohio and Pennsylvania, and that most of the cyclists he has come In contact with are warm supporters of Dane B, Potter for the presidency of the '.eague e.f American Wheelmen. Bald wlllbe In the city to-day. when lt may be de? termined whether he will go to Europe or not. There la likely to be a confli-t between the Co? lumbia College undergraduates and the Intercol leRlate Bicycle Association. Each has applied for the rental of the track at Manhattan Beach for Decoration Day. As lt will require two days, possl blv to decide the Intercollegiate championships, lt ls possible that Columbia may decide to select another day. This will Interfere also with the an? nual Irvlngton-Mllhum race. Some cycle racing promoters are talking about havinc dilly cycle racing at a local track next season, to which no admission will be charged. They seem to think that they will be able to run the races on the proceeds from the sale of priv? ileges. _ Some of the friends of Chief Consul Potter are discussing the advisability of arranging a dinner for him when he returns from his honeymoon next week. Cyclists desiring to Join th" T .ea gi ie of American Wheelmen may obtain full printed Information and membership blanks by sending names and ad? dress to the ("yellng Editor.

Day. preslelent of the New-York State Trottlng-Horso Breeders' Association, addressed a well-attended meeting of the admirers of the light-harness horse at the Murray Hill Hotel last night. The object of the meeting was to secure uniformity of action l.y fae formation of an organization of the trottinp-horse breeders and lovers of the trotter. Dr. Day succeeded In awak? ening his audience to the situation Judge H. M. Whitehead waa selected to act as chairman of the meeting, and S. M. Kio!* aral made secretary*. Committees were appointed 'to secure slgiatures to a petition to be presented to the Legislature at Albany asking thu. since "the radical anti-pool laws now in force have paralyzed the breeding and trottin^-hor*^ Interests of the State, and injured the same to an amount esti? mate"*- at B?,000.m In the lan two years." such relief may be granted "as is now being asked for through the bill supported bv the New-York State Trotting H'-rse ('reeders' Association." In the course of his remarks. Dr. Day said: "The breeders of trotters and the agricultural socletie's In this Slate desire to bf- relieved from the stringent laws thai make the hree-linc of trotters unprofit? able. There are 1"0 racetmks In this State that are nv mi.ers of th.' National Trotting Association, and ui w^rd of ion others that are not members.

[BT TE-EORAtMt TO THE TmriN-.J Albany. Jan. .I -James M. V.. O'Crn.ly, Of Roehes ter, will h.- the Speaker of the Assembly. Mr. O'Grady's hope of obtaining the office wns fulfilled to-nlg'ht bv his selection as candl.lnte for Speaker by the ll.". Republican namban of the Assembly. As the Rf-'publican len.ler In the Assembly last year, and as chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means, he became an expert parliamentarian anel thoroughly conversant with State affairs. Ile wns In the direct line of promotion is soon as Speaker Fish announcr-d thal he would not return ti the Assembly th:s year. If wns therefore not surprising that he should encounter no opposition In his canvass for Bpaaker. The county of Monroe, of which Mr O'Orady ls a representative, ls one of the leading Republican counties of the State, nnd lt may he said In passing that in Assemblymen O'Orady. Armstrong snd Lewis and Senators Par ASSFMBLTMAN O'ORADT. sons and Hanson lt baa the ablest body of repre sentatlvea, as a whole, of .'my county In the State. It ls quite natural that the representatives of the county have a commanding place in both the Senate and the Assembly, and that one of them has now rfached the Speakership The political depths Into which the Democratic party hrs fallen in this State was illustrated hy? the selection made by th-- Democratic Assembly? men of a candidate for Bpaaker. The man they chose was "Dan" Finn, for many years a liquor dealer and a Tammany Hall Assembly district leader. The Republican Assembly caucus was short and undeniably sweet to the men nominated for office. There was not a contest for any office. One Re? publican Assemblyman was preaent who was gazed at with a great deal of curiosity. This was Fred ertck A. Robbins, elected as an Independent Repub? lican from Allegany County. There had been threats of excluding him from the caucus, but he was present, believing himself to he ss good a Repub? lican as any of those present There was no roll call, and therefore his presenec was not officially recognized. "I shall attend every caucus until I strtke a snag." said Mr Robbins. The members of the Republican machine evidently thought lt beat not to meddle with bim at present. Assemblyman Austin, of New-York, called the caucus to order, and named S Fred Nixon, of Chautauqua, for chairman. Mr. Nixon made a short spech. One year ago, he said, In the Assem? bly Chamber, he had predicted a Republican victory In the State and Nation. He waa gratified tl at tho prediction had come true. With McKinley In the White House prosperity would come. A Repub? lican Governor had been Inaugurated, fmm whom much was expected and from whom much would come. He called upon the Republicans to be loyal to the people of the State. "Our Democratic friends," h? revrttlnued. "thought that they were to h? the rulers of the State forever, and became Indifferent to the wishes of the people. Do not let us think that present supremacy surely means permanent supremacy- Tarty su.-.ess con sis|s In keeping the ear close to the ground snd listening and respecting what tin* people have to say. I tmst we will pass bills In th.-ir Interest." Mr. Ives, of St. Lawrence County, was elected secretary of the caucus. Mr. Armstrong placed Mr. O'Ora.ly In nomination as a candidate for Speaker In simple, Straightforward style. He spoke of Mr. 0*Orad*s**a ability and integrity, and de clared that he was an admirable leaeler of tho As? sembly In 1S!i.> and would be a courteous and able Speaker. Mr. Brennan, of Hrooklyn. seconded the nomination. Mr O'Grndy wn.s then selected by acclamation as the Republican candidate for Speak er. Mr. Austin nominated Colonel Archie K. Baxter for clerk, and Mr. Horton seconded the nomina? tion. Colonel Baxter araa nominated for clerk by acclamation. The other candidates for officers of the Assembly w.ic alao chosen bjr unanimous vote.

A R BOWKRSVS CLAIMS AS I>T*/*ENTOR 81*8 TAINKD BY THE COl'RT OF APPEAL8. flan Franc'.s.-o. Jan 6.?Ry a decision of the United States Circuit Court of Appeala. handed down yes? terday, A. B. Bowers virtually owns a monopoly of the hydraulic dredging business The decision. Mr. Bowers estimate*, Ib worth to him all the way from IR.iW.ofio to fl5,ono.ono. The decision came in the suit of Bowers against Von Schmidt, which is one among many cases, but the decision ls euppOBed to end nearly all the others. The language of the decision ls that Mr. Bower* ls the orlglral inventor of the hydraulic dredger, and his patents are entitled to broad and liberal construction. The fight has been going on for eight years, and testimony his been taken sufficient to cover 477 large printed pages No less than eighteen suite are now In the courts against alleged Infringements of these patents, and some twenty others are about to be entered. Among the former are suits against the Pacific Improvement t'ompany, the American Dredg? ing e'ompany, the Oakland Iron Works, the New York Dredelne Company, ihe San Francisco Bridge f'ompany, Pacific Coast Dredging and Reclamation Company, American Hydraulic Dredging Company. I/in.lon W. Rates Hydraulic Dredging and Improve? ment -"ompany and thc City of Oakland. This Involves a check to a number of big con? tracts, notably the dredging of the Oakland harbor, the big drainage canal at Chicago and the dredg? ing of the city waterway In the harbor of Tacoma. These big Jobs, undertaken by rival companies with the objectionable dredccrs. may not be stopped, but they will have to go forward on a basis of settle ment with Mr. Bowers The decision ls far-reaching. It will put dredg? ing, so far as lt ts done by hydraulic suction. In the hand* of A. R. Rowers, and this not only ap? ollo* to the work goin? on In tht* country and t to ro on, but big contracts elsewhere, no'ably t some in Japan and Russian harbors. The defend I anti In the suits still to be brought Include cor I DOtratlons, private Individuals. Cnited States engi? neers and the I'nlted States (iovernment. It ls likely, however, that compromises will be effected and that thev will be required to pay a royalty for using their dredgers. --+ MUST COXTIXUE TO RE A TTXATIC. A reporter of a morning newspaper succeeded In getting himself committed to Bellevue Hospital a day or two ago as a luna ric. In order to write up a sensational yarn HI* .commitment was attested hy Bra. Field and Wildman, who are official examiners In lunacy. Teeterday afternoon Dr. F. W Robert? son, of the Bellevue medical staff, accused the re? porter of shamming The reporter acknowledged the eharjre and asked to be released, but was told that he must continue to he a lunatic fer several davs longer In or.ler to give the medical examiners full opportunity to review their orlctnal documents. A LIVELY GALE WHILE IT LASTED. The German steamship Sophie Blckmers, which reached this harbor yesterday from Hamburg, went through a gale on Christmas Day that threat? ened to send thc gejod ship to the bottom. To make the nest of a bad Job, the vessel was headed up Into the teeth of the gale. Great seas c?me tum? bling over the bows, and swept her deck of all movable objects. The ventilators were smaahed, the funnel was twisted into a corkscrew, and even deck flttlngr were torn from their fastenings. Rut worst of all. the steam steering gear became fouled, and five men had to be detailed to the main steering wheel to keep the vessel's head to the wind The gale lasted about eight hours and Cap. tain Brunst said lt was about the shortest and about the severest he had ever met.
