f Wo aro not spooking from moro prob
t i abilities when wo Inform tho public that
f proclamation from the President may
II be expected probably before the 20th or
Mth of this month calling an extra ses

In Washington on tho 4th of March or Im
mediately afterward I may also b pr
t mimed that tho business to b brought I

than ordinary Importance
More Exemption from Jury Duty
There Is a bill now before tho Legislature
ot this State which was ordered t a third
wading In the Assembly on Tuesday after
I noon that exempts bank cashiers tollers
and other officials of like capacity from
the obligation t servo a juror In any of
e cur
There I no more effective way t destroy
i the jury system than by constantly Increas
ing the lit of persons who a Dot required
t servo as jurors
The exempt list now comprises clergymen
physician dentists pharmacists
1 pola surns surgeon dcntt phao
malt attorneys professors and teachers
J In cleo academics or public schools elI
tors editorial writers and reporters on dally
I newspapers Federal officers State officers
j t and city officers consuls of foreign nations
I captains engineers and other officers of
vessels making regular trips licensed pilots
I superintendents conductors or engineers
o steam railroads telegraph operators
grand Jurors sheriffs jurors officers
musicians and privates In the National
Guard honorably discharged National
Guardsmen firemen and policemen
What good reason Is there why the cash
iers and tellers of banks should b added t
this list Why should they be erected Into
a privileged class In this manner and why
should the public deprived of the services
of such competent and intelligent men In
the jury box No persons aro moro ready
to denounce the jury system than are these
sro bank officers whenever the result of a
Jury trial does not accord with their notions
of what It ought t be and yot they are un
willing to old In giving the people good juries
i by acting as jurors themselves
The Legislature t making a serious mis
take In this matter and It 1 high time for
the Governor to take a stand against any
further addition to tho list of exemptions
from jury duty Tho list wnS lengthened
by the Legislature cf 1839 and by tho Legis
lature of 1890 ant this proposition t In
creoso it has come before the Legislature of
1891 before it was a month old
I should bo summarily thrown out or I
adopted It should b accompanied by a pr
viso making the exemption of bank officers
from service as Jurors dependent upon tho
condition that tho banks shall no longer
give the courts any work t do either In
civil suite or In criminal prosecutions
against cashiers tellers and other bank
servants so many of whom find tho climate
I more congenial in I Canada than in Now York
Tho New Elections In Spain
The general election which boa just token
place in Spain 1 the mot interesting event
that ha been witnessed In the Iberian
peninsula since the restoration of the BOUR I
BON dynasty In the person ol the late King
AXiPHONBO XII Scarcely bad tho reaction
late with tho help of the army under Mar
k shal CAMPOS rovlvod the monarchy when
they constructed the Constitution of 1870
under which the parliamentary franchise
w trammelled by high property qualifi
cations and confined to a small body of
electors For fourteen years tho Moderates
endeavored to conciliate the Republicans by
a promise of electoral reform but it was not
until last autumn just before Prime Minis
ter SAOASTA gave place t tho Conservative
leer CANOVAS Dan CASTILLO that tho
promise was fulfilled I was under the now
law which represents 0 close approach t
universal suffrage that fieflor CANOVAS the
other day Invited the voters to signify their
f approval of 0 Conservative Government
The result of the election Indicates that
there will b hereafter only two parties of I
much consequence I Spain namely Con
servatives and Republicans According to
t returns thus fa forthcoming the various
factions of the Opposition will b represented
In the now Chamber by only 120 Deputies all
told On the other hand the supporters of
OAMOVAB will b thrice a numerous The I
followers of SAOABTA who are appropriately I
described a Moderates or Constitutional
Liberate have suffered Immense losses tho I
Dynostio Democrats have almost disap I
peared whereas the downright Republicans I
have mae noticeable gains I any of the
Urge cities have chosen Conservatives
I I only because the opposing votes
were divided between Moderate He publi
can and Socialist candidates In spite of
the mot unscrupulous use of the Instru
t ments of intimidation and Reduction the
Governments victory was due mainly t the
disunion of Its adversaries 8 far a the
great centres of population Industry and
Intelligence are concerned It la evident that
f the brains of Spain a uncontrollable under
the l lime of universal suar e
Very different was the outcome of the ap
peal t tho ballot box In tho rural constitu
encies Hero It is plain that SAOAOTA even
had he retained In his hands the machinery
of official pressure would hare been beaten
by the Conservatives Throughout the
country districts the friends ot CANOVAS had
at their backs the united resources of Church
and State and in any circumstances
they would have been certain of the strenu
ous and undivided support of the Church
That as the returns show would probably
suffice t assure a majority of tho Chamber
of Deputies at any time In other words
the Oathollo priesthood through tho work
ings of universal suffrage seems destined to
exercise the same political ascendancy in
rural Spain which it undoubtedly possesses
pssss
I rural Ireland Tills striking demonstra
tion of the power of the priesthood In tho
Iberian peninsula will supply a fresh and
powerful argument to the partisans of tho
Vatican who believe that similar proofs of
Influence would be given by ecclesiastics In
1 many parts of Italy I tho Catholic electors
t were allowed to vote
Huch being tho issue of the first election
j
under the new law no clearseaing person
prn
1 will deny that It bodes 111 for the stability of
the BOOBBOS throne Sofior CANOVAS was
j actuated by loyalty t the Crown a well as
i by a thorough knowledge of the situation
when on the death of ALI OlsO XII ho resigned
signed the post of Premier and begged tho
i QueenRegent CHRISTINA t place the Mod
crates under SAOASTA in power Ho
L foresaw that so long as BAOASTA remained
d g1I1 M there would b a chnnro of
1
1 j
keeping tho Republicans quiet because
they would count upon obtaining much
by concession and compromise But
they will hop for nothing from a Conserva
tive Government resting as that of CANOVAS
must mainly on a majority created by
clerical 1 Influence Thoro Is reason there I
fore t believe that with tho assembling of
Urn now Cortes tho comparative tranquillity
which Spain ho thus far experienced under
tho Regency will cease and b succeeded by
nn era of violent commotion If not of dec
sive revolution Henceforth It Is tho towns
ngalnst the country and of such 0 contest
there cal b but ono result
A Few Moro licit
Little has been hoard lately of that famous
patent blllmnnufacturlng concern tho
Wnga Workers Political Alliance ot the Dis
trict ot Columbia But tho country has felt
itself safe because It knew that tho Alllanco
was not sleeping Whatever may b its
peculiarities nobody can justly accuse I of
over taking a rest It requires time t turn
out those fInished products of fancy legisla
tion which nro tho despair ot Congress and
tho wonder of the world but they are worth
waiting for Nona but themselves can b
their parallels
O course tho financial situation has en
gaged tho dooprovolvlng mind of tho Alll
anco and not for nothing A bill was framed
to meet that situation and knock tho day
lights out of It and on last Saturday Mr
CALL of Florida Introduced that bill by request
quest The W W P AD C bills are always
brought In In that way This seems tho
moro surprising because anybody would
think that Senators and Representatives
would bog for the privilege of presenting
measures that fairly sag with originality
Tho bill of which Mr OAr had tho honor t
b the bearer was t encourage tho mining
of gold and silver and for other purposes
It provides That the Secretary of tho
Treasury b and bo la hereby authorized
and instructed t purchase all offerings of
gold ninetenths fine at the rate of twenty
four dollars per troy ounce and all offer
ings of silver ninetenths fine at the rate of
one and onehalf dollars per troy ounce and
whenever a half ton of either of said metals
shall b so purchased It shall b melted Into
a cubical block and stored at an assay office
of tho United States within the limits of
the State of Colorado by the said Secretary
of the Treasury
TrorMM That the tall meUIf 1 pnnhaud than
nerer fct told 1 for less I than they colt
I there should not b money enough in the
Treasury to buy gold and silver for tho
Trsur t siver pur
pose of melting them Into cubical halfton
blocks and storing thomln Colorado tho See
rotary of tho Treasury Is directed t cause
a sufficiency of tho declaratory not promis
sory full not partial legal tender money of
the United States of America t b prepared
on silkthreaded paper lathe highest stylo of
tho art of handroller plate printing at the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing In the
District of Columbia and when the said
money shall b so prepared It shall also b
the duty of the said Secretary of the T
ury t cause tho said money t b covered
Into tho
Int Treasury
This is the invariable formula of the Al
liance Is tho Alllanco a manufacturer of
silkthreaded paper or Is ho Interested In
hnudrollcr plates 7 Wo advise the Farmers
Alliance and Industrial Union t look him
up The Farmers Alllanco has a larger
membership but It contains no financier
with the exception of JEREUIAB S SIMPSON
who Is worthy t b mentioned the same
category with tho Wage Workers Political

Congress and the Mllltla
The principal bill now before Congress for
the benefit of the militia I that of Mr HEN
Dfinsox which removes from the statute
book certain obsolete laws Increases the ap
propriation for arms and equipments from
400000 t 1000000 and provides for giving
portions of the uniformed militia annual
training in encampments of the regulars
While the friends of this measure will
carefully look after It it begins t b evi
dent as tho days a slipping away that
the first session was tho one in which t
push It But oven were there time in plenty
tho extravagant outlays of tho first s I
sion would binder the proposed increase I
of appropriation Secretary PKOOTOB has
suggested that the various States which i
In tho aggregate give moro than 3000000
t the militia would perhaps Increase then
appropriations If Congress should set them
an example but the fact t that only a few
years ago Congress doubled its previous an
nual allowance without
aUowMo securing corre
sponding State liberality and this recent
action may also b urged against the pend
ing measure for a further Increase
And another obstacle t the pending meas
ure 1 that preparations have been made t
select a magazine gun for the army T
Board for this purpose h boon appointed
competition invited and its programme of
tests made up It is quite possible that dur
ing the present year the choice of a
repeating rifle w b made Should it b
decided t Issue magazlno guns t the
militia an increased appropriation might be
1 necessity whereas should the present
single loaders and their ammunition and
appurtenances b served ont t tho State
troops there would b largo surplus supply
Under these circumstances Congress may
think it judicious t postpone till next year
the proposed legislation
Meanwhile some doubt may b folt a t
the experiment of detaching portions of the
mllltla for a months duty In tho camps of
regulars Tho practice of having regulars
visit and participate in the encampments of
tho National Guard has been carried out
to a greater and greater extent for tho
lost few years and with much success
Whether the regulars pass a tow weeks in
ono place or another fo their drills I of
slight consequence t tom and they fur
nish object lessons t the entire National
Guard of the State In which the encampment
1 held But I months encampment would
b out of the question for the great body
of the militia who have their ordinary
business t attend t and the delegation t
an army camp could only b secured by
volunteering This would require the tem
porary breaking up of organizations a well
as the diminution ot militia strength
Then since most of the regular camps a
at tho West and most of the State mllltla
forces at tho Est the Item of transporta
tion would bo a serious one and a large
part of the available tlmo would b con
sumed In going and coming and in effecting
organizations As the Govern
temporary orllulzaton A to Gover
ment would havo t pay these volunteers
and supply them with food and quarters it
Is urged that this would be I costly method
of laying out any additional money which
Congress may allow for the militia
Besides such a sytm It I suggested
might detract from tho interest of the
State camp which should receive undivided
support To aid those camps by the presence
of regulars where this Is possible is quite a
different thing from having officers and men
detached and sent elsewhere to receive their
Instruction At bst only a tow instead of
the senoral body would have the leisure for
i L 11 AA
service In the army encampments whereas
all the mllltla could b benefited by having
the regulars como t thorn For Infantry
moreover who form the great body of tho
Notional Guard It dos not appear neces
to among the regulars for proper
sary t go nmonJ tie rMullr forprpor
training A good State camp ought to b
sufficient for citizen soldiers
It is possible therefore that In this respect
spect the provisions of tho HENDERSON bill
might b modified t advantage A series
of autumn man UVrfB of much briefer du
ration In which many thousands of the ml
lltla could take part with nil the available
regulars would perhaps b moro Instructive
The could be hell nt different points In
different years perhaps ono at the East ono
In tho Mississippi valley and ono on tho
Paclllo coast but In different local
ties for successive seasons Another p
sible method of giving army Instruction
is tho proposed organization ot mllltla
eeaooost artillery There tho gain would
perhaps bo greater since would practically
result In tho formation of artillery reserve
garrisons each fuuillloT with Its ow fort
and guns and fairly competent t take
charge of them on a sudden call I I no
tlciiiblo thnt Secretary PnoaroR who com
mends In his annual report tho participa
tion ot regulars In Htato encampments has
nothing to say of tho proposed taking
jiart of tho mllllla in the army on
catupmonts lie docs declare however
that ono of tho most useful directions
which can he l given to thu drill and training
ofthornlHUa of tho seaboard States is 1 In
connection with coast defence whoro IH
services are most likely to b needed if at
nil Perhaps further deliberation on troso
suggestions will put the proposed rolltla
Ipglslatiou In n susie where a more Judi
cious method of expending any Incnnso of
appropriations can b rolled upou

Judging from experience nnd from tho ox
RtlnK facts thero can bo llltln question about
his deficiency The deficiency for the year
1839 was 1000000 and the deficiency for 1800
was 120307732 I the Treasury thetaioro
should escape with 1 deficiency of only
i 110000000 under tho Pending bill I would be
fortunate eapoolally as the annual cost of the
Disability bill may bo anywhere between
135000000 and 15000001 Besides the esti
mates In the protect bill were mado up lust
October and accordingly did not take Into
consideration any of the pension legislation of
the present session nor perhaps to Its full
extent tho rush of applications under tho Dis
ability act Of theso latter there are now on
file about 530000 As fast a those claims are
allowed tbo names co upon the roll
The net of June 271BUO added 438 medical
examiners clerks and other employees to the
Pension Office force and 175 clerks hoe been
ordered to ofllco work from the field vhcio
they were formerly employed a special ex
aminers ThenoreOnforcements have Increased
the strength of tho office by more than ono
hal and havo raised Its roll of ofllccrs and em
ployees to 1GG2 Accordingly the number of
claims allowed tills year is likely to be extra
ordinary so that during the next fiscal year
the aggregate pension outlays may possibly
reach 150000000
In the year 1873 the disbursements for pen
sions were a little ovor 211000000 The aver
age of the threo years following was about the
same In the year 1877 they had dropped to
about 28000000 and in the following jour to
36844415 Now we find them live times as
great as thor were at that date when a great
many more ot the veterans and their widows
were living A like change Is soon In tho num
ber of pensioners This was 238411 In the
year 1873 In the next year 230241 In the
next 234821 in tho next 232137 in tho next
I 232101 Whllo In 1878 It was 223998 But on
the let of July last In spite of the many deaths
of pensioners during theptevlous twelve years
I there wero C37944 of them on tho role and by
next July the number will no doubt b well
along to 600000 or above It Indeed at a re
I cent date thoro were pending about 000000
claims a considerable part of which were
original applications the remainder being for
Increases of rates
The difference between the pension system
as wo see I today and that which prevailed
during the first twelve years after the war Is
duo t the fact that during the earlier period
this system represented what was natural
while during the last twelve years I has been
forced Into an abnormal growth by preposter
ous legislation At first the Government made
fixed rites of pensions and Invited and urged
all who were entitled to them to como forward
and receive them which they did to tho aggre
gate number of from 250000 to 800000 When
these demands had been met I was found
that while many thousands pending claims
were added every year yet the deaths among
the pensioners at length more than counter
balanced them and the roll slowly decreased
Then began the extraordinary legislation
First came the Arrears act under Hayes add
ing hundreds of millions outright to the out
lays and stimulating many to apply for pen
sions who had not done so To this policy was
added that of Increasing the rates ot pensions
In some cases by adding fully onehalt to the
amount paid on them tbe most conspicuous
Increase of this sort being made under Cleve
land Finally came tbe Introduction of the
scheme for pensioning without wounds or
disability acquired In service as In the Mexi
can Pension bill under Cleveland and the De
pendent or Disability bill under Harrison
These measures initiated by claim agents
eager to find new clients have changea the
liberal but judicious system which prevailed
from 1865 to 1878 t what we see today
With the appropriations just made Congress
has already voted about 1300000000 for
30000 pen
sions since the last year of the civil war and
the aggregate will probably have reached
2000000000 five or six u years hence

a few suggestions for new laws on the subject
Mr Hewitt Bent them word that he was I private
vate citizen When he was serving this olty
a Mayor his letters and opinions on tbe sub
ject ol docks bad been placed on record in
various ways and he now had nothing to add
to them although he was willing to aid the

ExCorporation Counsel Henry R Beekman
was called He said that he understood that
testimony had been given before the commit
tee favoring a return to tho old system of the
private ownership of thewatertront and docks
He was opposed to that He did not agree with
Mr Dimock that I was not wise for the city to
become a landlord to such nn extent B was
contemplated bt the act constituting the Dock I
Department The city already owued five
VOlartmont

This property be thought would bn hotter
governed by the city than by private Indi
