" Mr, Hpoaker. I have learned frbm my ex pprloneeln this House that at tho beginning til oach term ot Congress there aro cortuln m;in, styled ecoiiotntsts whether real eoono tnl'ts or not I cannot sny-who dollborately begin work brjiroposluc that tlio members of the House tie their own hands and their own fert and then try to do tho business. Laughter nnd nnpluuso.) Hut I notice that when It comes Ito voting appropriations for legislators nt tho uther oiul of tlio Capitol, theso gentle meu do not ovon wait Ito be told what Is re iiilrod. Thoy putlnto the appronrlatlon bills of this House, without waiting for a roquest from the Uonatc, appropriations for 142 clerks) for olghty-olght Senators. Yet those same gontlemen talk now about roduolng tho paltry number of llftv-noven olorks allot tod to the JJ.J4 members of this House. Is this economy r Is It hypocrisy? lApplauao and laughter. Uthor Houses ot Congress In roars gone br have carried out this oonnomloal principle br repcnllng tlio franking prlvlloge. and.wnal It tho result if Thorolanotn man In this House who does not pay out ot hit own pocket from llfty conts to 1.CQ dally for postage. For whuff For his own business ? o: but for tho htiflnesa of his constituents, r That's so.' That's right,' and npplauscl And now. In addition to this. It Is proposed to requlro your cjialrmonof committees to do nil their own clot leal work ; to get tholr pons and their caper mid walk Into the stationery room and have their mucllago bottles tlllod (laughter) to wait upon thomselvus: to furnish their own docutnotits; to paok their seeds: to wnto their letters und roportsi to direct their own onve lopes end pay their own postage and of oouree to pay their own shaving, whtoli Is not tho rulo at tho other ond of thoUapltol. (Laughter, how, sir. If thoro Is a commltteo of this Ilouso that ought to havo a olork, provldod the committee doos Its duty. It Is tho very one tu which tho gontloman from Kentucky re ferred, the Commtttua on Yontthttlon and Aeoubtlcs. (Lnughter.) I toll the now members of tho 11 ousn that tho longor they ore horo, tho muro spouchos they hoar and tunku In this hall, tlio moro thoroughly they will bo con vinced that If ono clerk, or two clorks. or throo clorks will serve to stir up the Commtltoo on Ventilation and Acoustics to do Its duty, tho more they will be convlnaod that tho ap propriation (s an oxtromolr good Invest ment. (Laughter). Their bodily and mental health will bo consorvad. But. Mr. Bpeaker. tho House Itself holds the key to this situation. It oreatos those oommlttoos. If you havo no work for them abolish thorn, but as long as rou do luivo the least work tor thorn, aud as long they do oxlst do not oompel them, la tholr Congressional Howing, to furnish tholr own thread und buttons." Lnughter nnd npplauso). Mr. Drown (Dom..Ind.) said tho gentlouiun who had just spokon wns Chairman of tbo Coinmittno on Library, with three members. Mr. Cummlngs And with twenty-threo monument bills already before It Mr. Jlrown I hope It will not bo long before tho commltteo bus tun twenty-fourth before it, Laughter. Mr. lioutelle (Hep.. Ma) arousod the mirth of the House by n humorous descriptive speech nt the plcturo of "Itotrencnmentund Iletorm. as witnossod on Thursday afternoon during tho dabnto on the Holman rosolutlon. Ho said: "Wliut a comical old humbug tho Demo cratic! party Is. Yearaf tor year. Congress of tor Congress, tlio sanio old song, the samo old tune ou ono string. I sat hero yesterday and looked at that remarkable scono prcsontod on 'thoothor side, when tho gontloman from In diana, tho distinguished Chairman ot the Com mitt oo on Appropriations, stood up, and. while tlio brethren gathered around him, ad ministered to them In allopathlo dosos tho inedlciuo of retrenchment and reform. There wns something so familiar about tho grouping that I tried to recall wliun It was that I had soon or heard or road something of that kind betoro. Finally it carao to me that it wns simply history repeating Itself, nnd that this remarkable oplsode and Hpectaole was simply rv reproduction of the prophooy of Dickens und tho picture of CrulkBhnnk.when they depleted the one with his pen. tho otherwithlhts pencil that famous scone whero Mrs. Squoers gathered In the boys around her and administered to them with a long spoon that dose of brimstone and treacle, retrenchment and reform, for tho purpose of breaking down tholr appetites and hnvlng provisions. (Laughtor.l I know you woulil recognize tho picture, nnd tho only feeling of melancholy I have in connection with it is that Dickons died beforo seeing the leatlzution of his dream." In closing. Mr. Uoutello said that tho slmplo remark of a patriotlo character that hu had euen or heard In tho past yoar had come from n woman, tho wlf s of tho present Governor of New York. Ho then road with muoh Interpo lation, respecting tho previous occupants of the Oovernor's mansion. Messrs. Clovolnnd nnd Hill, tho statements credited to Mrs. Flower. a3 to what was tho necessary to put thu mansion in ordor for family, in which alio reported as saying that ovorythlng that was nocesBnry could bo purchased in America, nnd that sho did not Dellevo that a foreign trudo mark made an article any bettor than Its native competitor. Mr. Cummlngs desired to add a moral to Mr. Boutello's speech to tho otfoetthat during the two Democratic, administrations of New York to which tho gentleman from Maine had re fenod the State debt had boenroduced $7,000. 000. und at tho olose thoro was $3,000,000 In tho treasury, a treasury which was empty whon Mr. Cleveland went Into ofllco. (Ap plause. Mr. Enloe (Dora.. Tenn.) replied to Mr. Bou tello in a, vigorous ten-mlnuto speech. Ilo fcrrlng to the Bquoers Incident. Mr. Enloe said that if tho gentleman had pursued the story a little further he would have read that tho boys rebelled ae-vlnst the administration and com pelled Mrs. Bqueers to tako sulphur and troaclo outof tho same 'wooden spoon. Tho people havo rebellod against tho Republican party, and tho ltepreeentatlvos ot that party aro to day taking treacle at tho hands of tho Demo Demooratio ltopresuntatlvos. who havo crowded over the aisle formerly separat ing tho parties In ordor to find room. Itefnrrlng to Mr. Boutelle's quotation of Mrs. Flower's remarks. Mr. Enloe said ho thought tho Kentleman guilty of a great discourtesy to thut lady in ro.uling thorn hero. Thoy had probably been mado in tho presence of a ro Dorter not known to bo such, and by him printed In tlm papers. Tlint was n. common experience But ho was In favor oj the Ameri can Idea, and bo was sorry that Sir. lioutelle had not gono on and told trto House whore tho lust purchase of china for the White Houso was mado. whether or not it was a foreign consignment The gentleman probably wan well enough acquainted tliero to put his foot under the mahogany of tho Exoeutlvo Man sion and see for Tilmsnlf tlio Harrison signa ture burnod In thu china. ... Mr. Husk moved tbe previous question, be lieving that tho House was ready to vote. Mr. TtMvi of Maine Will tho adoption ot that motion havo Uio effect of chopping oil dsbato f Tho Bnroaker pro turn. It will-have the of fect of stopping debate. Mr. Keod Then wo shall havo to go to our own Stotos to express tho sontlmontaot frco American citizens. (Laughter.) The provlous question wad ordored. and on Uio motion to substitute' tho minority for tha majority report the voto wus taken by yon and nays, rosulting-o'eus tH. nays UU.

Tho Houso loaders hnvo not yet dotormlned whether they shall call a caucus fur tho purpose ot outlining it plan uf paity action. The lack of unltod, har monious action dovoloped yoaterday led to bomo talk ot tho desirability of a cauous, at which thero might bo a coneraf discussion of party pollay und an agrooment with reference to tho courso to bo pursued. This talk has not yet crystallized into tho formof the circulation of u cull for n onucus, but sovoral mombors have the subject under consideration and may draft u cull and hand Itaround for tlznatures. Other Democrats think, however, that ns mattors have rlghtod thomsolvos with respect to tbo preoont subject before the Houso-tho Holman resolution-It would be well to deler a party cauous for tlio present Mr. llalmau had under eorlous consideration yesterday the udvlsabllltr of withdrawing his resolution declaratory of the eensa ol the Houso on subsidies and other mattors luvolv lug appropriations, end of amending It so as to muke Its wording less stringent The opposi tion which developed to the resolution .was un oxpectod by Mr. Holman. who had anticipated that a considerable proportion of tho members of the Hepubllcun sldo would vote for It and that It would havo utmost the unltod support of the Democrutlo membors. The, spirit ol antago nism shown to It by n number of Democrats wus thoreforo a surtirlhe to him. und lod to tho motion mado by Mr Holmau yorterday hav ing In view It m ldlllcatlorii or Trialr." ns uucv'tted bv Mr. Itued. the leudor of tl.

The sub-oomralttoe ol the Senate Commltteo on Finance, which has been Investigating the effeotupon tho country ot the MoKlnley act and past tariff acts, will go to Now York to morrow to Investigate tho effect upon the rev enues and buslnoss lntorosts of tho oountry of the administrative sections of the MoKlnley act They expect to remain some days Inves tigating the workings of the law and In con sulting offleotJ of the oustoms service nnd business men. The. sub-committee Is com posed of Bonators Aldrloh. Allison, UlBOook. Coxllslo, and Harris. Tho Bonato Commltteo on tho Judiciary was In session several hours to-day considering the nominations ot the new Circuit Judges. Beveral ot the nominations would nave been reported favorably to the Bonnte somo Urao ago. but Senators Voorhees and Turplo ot In diana made strenuous objection to favorable action on the nomination ol Judge Woods of Indiana, and thu oommlttee dccldod that It would hear their protest beforo reporting the nominations. ja as to be able to report allot thorn together; Benator Voorhees was to havo appoared before the Judiciary Com mittee Inst Monday, but ho went to Indiana, and Judge Woods's case was postponed until to-day. Bonator Turple, his colleague, appeared. before the committee to-day ond asked that the consideration ol Judge Woods's .homlnatlon be postponed until Benator voor hees returned. After Senator Turple had left tho room the committee considered the Somlnatlon tor sovornlhours, and It was final r deolded to postpone lotion until some future aar convenient to Benator Voorhees. Protest has also beon made to the committee In writing against favorable action on the nomination of Judge MoOormlok of the Texas CIroult The names ot his rvousors have not leaked out ot the committee room, .but the nature of their oharges has. Judge MoOorrolck Is aoousod of hav ing treated the oltlzons of Graham. Tex., In a shabby way. Judge McOormlok Is a Judgo ot a State court and hold bis sittings In Dallas and Orahara. He lived In Dallas, land the citizens ot Oraham offered to give him e resi dence in their town, on oondltlon. It Is said, that he would ruako It his home. Judge Mo Cormlak ageed, and the house was glvea to him. Ho llvod In Urnham for while and then moved book to Dallas, aud his accuBors say that hq sold his Oraham houso. applied the money to bla own use and violated Ins agree ment by moving baok to Dullas, The main charge against him Is that lie protend od to act In good faltli with the Oraham pooplo In ordortbatho might obtain tho pecuniary bene fit from the sale of tho house altar it ouae Into Oils possession. The bill Introduced In the Bouse to-day by Mr. Newberry ot Illinois to test aftd trr the. science of spoiling; provides tor the establish tnont of 100 schools tor that purpose, ana to establish a spelling school in Che World's Fair. It appropriates $30,000 to be delivered to Charles A- Storey of Chicago, for which he Is to give bond that It shall bo expondod as the bill directs. Mr. Storey Is directed to runt and furnish a suitable room In Chloago tor tbo ao oommodatlon of teachors and pupils who aro to uso and practically apply Uio sclonoa ot spelling. The publio are to bo admitted to the school, room to see. hear, and examine tbe ecionoo of spelling with a view to its further and gonorat Introduction and practical ubo in primary and pubUo Rchools of the united Btutes. The hill authorizes Mr. Storey to estab lish in Now York olty und Washington schools of the samo character as the ono to ho obtab lisbod In Chicago, and appropriates $50,000 tor each school. As soon as the sohools nt Chloago, New York, and Washington aro estab lished, tho remaining rdnety-seven schools are to be established at the principal oIUos In the United States in the same manner as the first threo sohools. Mr, Storey Is authorized to om ploy teachers for tho several sohools, und Is to receive $5,000 as compensation for each sobool he establishes. ' The House Committed on tWvors and Har bors met to-day and began tbe preparation ot tho Illvor and Harbor Appropriation bill. The committee began with tho State of Maine, and will consjdor the States by sections, beginning with tho New England section. Many mombers of the House are embar rassed by tbo Russian relief resolution, which was indefinitely postponed, and are anxious that tho action of tho Houso shall not bo con struod by tbo Husslan Government as an indi cation of a laok of friendly feeling and sym pathy. It Is proposed, therefore, to pass a resolution, with u preamble, reciting what la being done through tho Hud Cross Soolety nnd expressing sympathy with tho Husslan people, but declaring that it is against tho principles ot our Constitution to appropriate money from the publio Treasury for such pur poses, and at the same time expressing confi dence that tho gonoroslty of the people of this country will be equal to the occasion. This, It Is declared, would eive encouragement to the efforts of the Bed Cross Society and muke clear the attltudo of this Government An interesting quartet of New England ttatesmon waded through the slush up tho avonuo from tho Capitol, after adjournment this afternoon, und attractod general atten tion. The great big man. with a long over coat unbuttoned, a black derby hat orushod down on the baok of his bead, so that his big forehead bulged out uncovered, nnd with a stride like an olophant was ex-Speaker " Tom" lloed. Trotting by Ills side, in a vain effort to koep up with the procession without seeming to hurry, was a thin, wiry, medium sizod man, who looked small boslde Heed. He wore a long, tight-fitting ulster and soft gruynat under whloh a eharp fciiturod, smooth-shaven face peerod forth. This man carried In one hand a silver-tipped cane and In tho othor a cigarette. Ho was Mr. Shormun Hoar, the young Democrat from Massachusetts. Back ot this sharply con trasted pair walked two tall, slender, well dressed, nandsome men. ono wearing a black l'rluoo of Wales hat und a blond Eng lish beard: tho other with a Bilk tile, eye glasses, and tho merest apology tor a moustache. Tho man with the whiskers was Henry Cabot Lodge, and the one without any wus ltopresentative George Fred Williams of Dedham. Messrs.

I Manama the lloaest Folk of the Tow, and It Is Kepi Alive br the Tree I.ndalaa flcaee, IVtier the Honest and Worthy Poor Almost Never Go for Shelter. For somo reason or reasons not ret discov ered Now York has a plaguo ot beggars as goneral as tho plaguo of Influenza, Tho struct beggar is no new Institution, but has beon with us so long that without him the night streets of New York would seem lonely and unfriendly. We aro all familiar with his deep, sad. hoarse nppoal his watory eyes, his shuffling and furtive gait. Somo Umoswo give him money to allay that thirst ho hesitates to confess nnd again sometimes we don't It la not to the multiplication ot this indi vidual that tho present plaguo is duo, how over. Tho professional boggnr whom wo havo with us summer and winter is a timid undo, commonplaoe creature whose eoul seldom rises to the uttered curse at a refusal.. The Individuals who form this plaguo are bold. Insolent fellows with no disposition to taken rebuff, and with a most'tUreatenlog nilon undor refusal. Again the perennial professional Is found almost exclusively in Uie lower parts ol the 'city. You mar meet him on upper Broadway, but he Is rare there. The plague extends from 'the Battery to Harlem, and is more sottooabla In and around Forty-second street than any where else. It does not oonflne Ita oporaUons to the softened and sympathotlo hours ot night bat work by day as well. And far from being content with annoying the footsteps of the passer-by. it ollmbs stoops' or descends to ring at area bells. Yr'honovor there Is a superabundance ot beg gars a mlsguldod soit-hoartodnesB "at onco orios. "Poor wretches I It tea hard winter I" But this plague has struck us In a mild and open winter after a summorand fall In which work was plenty.. Tbo fact Is that the beggar loves not tho oager and nipping" ' air. Ho prefers nlglite when he may look sod and shabby without dlsoomfort othor than tho mild and salutary washing ot the softly falling rain. Thore were novor more facilities for the ao oommodaUon ot Uie moneyless at night Thore Is no reason why any man, woman, or child should walk the streets and beg. Tne police stations, the charity organizations, tho houses for the friendless are all ready to put their forcosln motion for those who nood assist onoe. Tho plague wants none ot tt Tho plague boa come to beg, steal, or nssiult and It will not stop for work. In the upper parts ot town. In tbe quiet streets whoro thoro are but tow pedestrians to tbo block, you will And those nev beggars, not singly but In pairs or trios. Ono Is spokes man for alb He makos his domand clthor In !i surly war or with a throat not In the loost ild. In Bovorol oases a rotusal has boon fol owed by a blow and n beating. In most cases ond of these tho polico do not hear the'.way laid gives of his substance In proportion to his distaste of a disturbance or his fear. Complaints have been rooelvtd at many of tho police stations that Uiose llttlo bands are going from houso to house In broad daylight demanding food, clothing, or money. As tlieso demands nro made in tho day tine, when Uie men uro all away, tho ' beggars." If they may bo so called, profit well by their boldnoss. In addiUou to this, tbo merchants on the west elde say that theso twos and throes come In upon them and linger long attor they havo been told to loavo. urging their reuuests.and no doubt looking tor u afianco to steal und run for It Tho polico recognlzo that the begging ovll fias greatly lnoroased. and as a rosult orders mvo been sent out from almost evory polico station to koep an especially sharp look out for beggars. That the policemen are obeying orders Is shown by tho loug lines of miserable-looking creatures chargod with street bogging that llln boforo tho polico magistrates each morning. Thoy got threo months, but the plague does not seem to lessen. Mr. Kellogg ot Uio Charity Organization So ciety said yosterday that he thought Uio giv ing ot lloenses for peddling was ono of tho great causes of the plaguo. and that the police lodging houses, tho Bowery lodging houses, ana other places of rofugo for these people wero also great breeders of beggars. At tho license department ot Uio Mayors office It was said that thoro had been no eepeciul Increase in tho number of peddlers' licenses, but that peddling without a lieanse wus going on at n surprising rato. and that it secuiod to bo bo yond tho control of tho police As a mattor of fact Uie peddling beggar is ono of the commonest and also ono of tho most annoying forms ot tho nuisance. Ho has oourt ilueter. or he has pencils, or ho has a iown iarp. or a shoestring or so, and gonorally bis (solitary article ot roorchandiso is In a deplor ably shop-worn condition. Ho follows you for R block with a talo of woe. which shows plainly ow little ot a merchant and how much of u beggar ho Is. But tho paddling bocgar Is not threatening or violent nnd lielongs to tho plague only because ho Is more numerous than over boloro.' Tho Bowery lodging houses, whero a night s rest may be had for from 0 conts to 25 cents nnd upward, are crowded nightly, and, at all timos retuges for thieves, are just now abso lute pests. The polico freo lodglngB certainly do encourngo boggury. but are a necessary ovll. The llev. Stephen Merrltt, with hla lodg ing house, and the other mission lodging Iiousoh also, give undue oncouragomont to a class that simply bests and lodges freo bocausa it hates work. Horo are two cases In point takon from the Tombs Polico Court yosterday: Mary Cooper, a notorious beggar, was brought in by Policeman Hogan of tho Fourth precinct Hu said sho was a professional beg- :ur, and thnt ho had ropoatodly warned her off lis beat Sho lives In ono of the toughest odging housos In tho proclnqt at 07 Koosevolt ptroet Last ovonlng ho saw her approach a womin nnd ask for nionoy. She wus relusod. but followed the woman two blooks. sweurluir and striking at her. Justlco McMahon sont her to tho Island tor throo raonUis. Thomas Whulen, '24 years old. no homo, was arrested yosterday morning by Policeman Wright of the Fourth precinct for begging lu Park row. Whalen apfironohed a putser-by and usked for a dime. When ho did not get it ho drew a razor and cut at tho man, who dodged and ran. Whalen started after lilin, aud was caught by Wright with Uie opcu razor In his band. At tho Tombs Court yostordny JtiFtlco Mo Mahon romanded Whalen tor trial. At tbo (ink stroet pollen stutloit It Is believed that Whalen may be tho person who ha slashed half a dozen men ncross tho face or nock re conUy, and hns been able to osvupo before the polico came up. The Increase of beggars and the Increase of their Insolence requires thnt tho police tako eveu moro tlgorous measures. It nlio requires thnt. tho mission lodging huilFe uud polico stations nud othor places where freo bods aro to bo had bo weeded out. It Is not hardness or lack of charity thut says thut tho free lodg ing houses do not rec-lvo thu derervlng poor so much ns they afford n shelter foi tlioo trumps who prefer tho streets of a city In wln tcrtotho muddy rnnds of the country, nnd come in to live through tho winter beabou Without work. a bva cavi: own hun sidk Return of ba Calirnrnlu Mated to Port, with Urokea Nletraca Ucur, A cumulative w.ivo sovoral rollors merged In ouo caused tholIiiinbtirg-Amorlcan steam ship California to put back Into this port yes terday with her steerage ar badly damaged and her cargo shifted.
