Washinoton, June 13, Bpeaker Ileed has I caused a ripple of excitement among his He- t publican collaacuos in the House by letting It ' ! become known that In bis opinion rlcldeoon- i' ' omyraustbe the watchword for the remainder ) of this session or his party will find Itself in an 1 embarnsslng situation from which they will , not bo ublo to escapo. With the exception of a tho Disability l'onslon bill, which passed the K Jloieiho otherday, very little legislation has j ! been onac.ed or mapped out providing for any I : , N excossivo espendlturs of money, and 1,1 I it Ii plain that Mr. Reed did all 1 1 fi l tt uid to mala Lu cwloacuos tea the lack of wisdom In adding t7S,000,000 r ilOO.000,000 to tho annual expenditure for pensions. That bill passod the House, how evor. and now the Speaker says that extrava ganco must cease. The latest bill upon whloh ho has set his foot, and which has cnusod the eroatust Indignation among many of his fol lowers and supporters in the House Is tho Son ato bill appropriating In round numbors JO. 000.000 for tho completion of the work of Improving tho vast waterway of th grent lakos by widonlng tho Hay Lake ohannol In the. Hu, Mary's, HUor and tho enlargement of the locks of the crest canal nt Hault bte. Mnrlo. '1 he bill passod the bori nte two or throo month9 ago and was favorably nctod upon by tho Houso Commlttoo on Hlvers nnd Harbors. It is now on tho calondnr for no tion, but Its frlonds have nlmostghan uphopo. The bpoakcr Is opposed to it, and It has beon Impossible to bring Influenco enough to benr to get his consent for Its consideration. In tho expectation that It will to passod the fcori ato Commlttoo on Commerco, which Is now ongngod In. tho preparation of tho lllver und Harbor bill. ,hn loft this opon so that tho nggrogate of their bjlU'iiii bo kept at as low a Ilgure ns possible. If the llrtn&n tnlla In nuKAlirinn the bis! bill. hOWOVOr, It will bo nocessary to ndd In tho bonnto com mlttoo an amount sulllclent to coutlnuo the Improvements during tho coming yonr. air. Hood has oonlorred with somo of tho loadors in both Houses on the subioct of tho nocesslty of practising rigid economy, in view of tho vast expenditures thnt havo beon provided for In the now l'onslon bill nnd that are conteinplntod In measures that are likely to pass,and ho thinks that n maiorltv of his party will stand by him in tho light. V ry few public building bills aro slipping through nowiulms. and thero Is no doubt that the Hpenker nnd the I'rosldent have an understanding that there must be no wnsto ofthepuhllc money. Mnny benato bills pro viding for largo appropriations hnve bean ul lon to lie upon the bponker's tabloorln the commltteo rooms, nnd aro npt to stuy tnero until the end of this Congross. Mr. Heed soems to hnvo taken entire posses sion of tho working of tho Houso, and nothing can be passed or be dofeated without his con sent. Ho has forced tho tariff and silver bllli through without siillloleiit friction to cauohlra unensTnoes. nnd now ho Is nroparlng to send to tho bonate within tho next four wooks a Tod oral oleotlon bill that will nrouto the Demo crats from ono ond of tho country to tho other. Mr. Iteedexpocts that It will arouBO the Ito publlcans also, and that is why he Is deter mined to how to tho lino which ho mappod out In his l'lttsburgh pooch. Ho has been told by many of the best mon In both Houpos that ho Is exhibiting his mnilod hand too freoly. but tholbig Hpenkor only shakes his head and says that a Federal election law is tho only thing that can save the liomtbllonn party from utter defeat. Many of the leading mon In tnobonnte aro joalous and angry at Mr. Hood for setting a paco for them so Ihelv that they find the greatest dtffoulty In keeping up with it, nnd thoy claim that It Is not bocomlng In tho Houso to forco legislation upon tho benato. The Spoakor understands his own prorogntlvos. howovor. nnd thoso of tho Houso of Itoprosentntlvos. and he feols that tho most popular course just now Is to show that he and Ills party tnionu to carry out tho promises mado In tholr plat forms. Tho rapidity with which the big form of tho Spenker Is looming up Is cnuslng con siderable anxiety to many other would-bo lenders, and much talk is boing Indulged In as to tho wisdom or folly of his aggressive oourso. Thero Is no doubt that Mr. Heod s popularity ghes much uneasiness to tho frlonds of Mr. lllalne, nnd they are not bonrlng tholr dfa pleasuro In sllenco. Thuro Is a strong current hero to-day to tho effect thnt Mr. Ulalue has had his oyo upon Mr. Hoed over slnco ho as Mimed thoSpeakor'schair.and thru tho Plumed Knight Is beginning to call attontion to tho alleged mistakes which his youthful rlvnl Is making. It Is said that the bocrotary of State. In conversation with a Itepubllcnn Senator yostordoy, oxprossed his emphatic, disapproval of Mr. Heed's course, and ventured the opinion that ho could do nothing that would bo moro unpopular with the Iiopublicnus nnd the rooplo generally than to fathor leg islation providing for a. bounty on sugar and Federal control of untlonal olectlons. Whether Mr. lilalno said this or not. It Is a woll known fact that hl friends aro sneering at Mr. Heod, and predicting thnt his dictatorship will end In his downfall and tho defeat of tho liopublicans. Mr. Hood does not appear to bo afraid of those predictions, nnd has told his intimate friends that he intends to pursue It until convinced to tlio contrary. Tariff, silver. Federal controltof olectlons. nnd strict economy is the progrummo marked out by tho Hpoakor. and to which ho will hold bis party in tho Houso for the balanco ot the session. Thecruisorriilladolphlawill not be equipped ntthe New York Nuy lord. A delegation has been hero from Philadelphia nnd represented that that olty was ontitlod to tho work of lifting out as well as building the vessel. The appeal was based on sentimental and material grounds. Tho Fecretary of tho Navy bns di rected that tho Philadelphia bo fitted out at tho Cramps' shlpyaid. This will necessitate the removal of material from tho iow York havy Yard to Philadelphia. Mr. Hyland C. Kirk, tho claimant who n fow days ago cnarged Mr. Springer of Illinois with being corruptly Influoncod by tho enomlos of his claim, has put his chargos Into formal sbnpe. Ho has urnwn up a long lotter to bpeaker Heed, in tho form ot nn nuldnvlt. and ho swears that Jlr. Springer, when Chairman of tho Committee on Claims in the Torty-slxth Cougrefs. offered to champion his claim bill upon the payment of tOOd. Mr. hlrk says that Mr. Springer told him that If ho wanted his bill to pass to see his elork und niuku nrrango ments for tho payment of the cash. Tho clork. Mr. Kirk says, rofusod to be the negotiator of the bribe, and henco it was never given. It Is not thought at all likely that bpeaker Iteed will dignity Mr. Kirk's attack by calling It to tbo attontion of the House. Mr. Springer has novor beon accused of dishonesty, whatever his faults may bo. and tho members generally rogatd the attack upon his character as the senseless abuse, of a disappointed claimant. Pay Insroctor Ambroso J. Clark of tbo navy will bo ordered to Boston Instead of to Now York. He has boen on six months' leavo in Europe and returned when Pay Director Looker resigned as Paymnster-General last month. Pay In spector Clark will relievo Pay Director Casper Bonenck from duty In tho Boston navy pay ofllce. and the latter goes to Annapolis, ray Inspector John 11. btevenson, who was on duty at the Naval Academy, was relieved by the bee- Setary. It Is said at the department that Mr. tevenson was severely critical of some of tho minor officers stationed nt tho department, and that his dotaehment from duty at tbo Academy had been long contemplated. His last skir mish, according to oljlcors hero, was with C'npt Sampson, the Superintendent of the Academy, against whom he Is said to have in spired tho affidavits of two servants alloglng retention ol salaries. It was at one time planned to recroate the old ofllce of Inspector of Provisions and Clothing nt New York for Pay Inspector Clark, but he will bo sent to Iloston, where he Is as well known as In New York. The Treasury Department has denied the application of Mr. 11. Q. Mnrquand of New York for the free entry of n piece of antique tapestry nnd an enamelled copner basin re cently imported by him, nnd which, he says, wore lntendod to bo donntcd in n short time to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, of which he is Presldont. A momorlal signed by many physicians of general repute in their profession protesting against tbo duty Imposed by tho McKiuloy bill on mineral waters, was presented In tho Senate to-day by Mr. Carlisle.

The I'rosldent has solectod three ot the gen eral appraisers provided for in the Customs Admtnlstratlvo bill, nnd it Is expected that their, names will bo sent to the Senate on Monday, It Is known that Assistant Secrotary Tlchenor is one of the three, and It is thought that Solicitor Hepburn is another. It is un derstood that the remaining six members of the Board will be selectod the latter part of next week or early the following week.

The controversy that has orison over the question of the removal of tho Mint in Phila delphia to some othor city Is occasioned by tho fact that the Houso CommltteeonPublloHclld. dm and Clrounds has mado a favorabo report upon the bill appropriating the Btimof $2.000..

The bill will no doubt bo oarnestly opposod by Congressmen, who w"l make if fight lp tho ln?'j,nf tho clilos of Now York land W nshlng ton.
