Little (hiv cf tha R,v;!r.n Thorp : prolood fisrht ever V.'ashinRton. November time can be lost if congress i3 to get through its business at the coming short session. The calendars of both houses will be crowded with measures which will be pressed for consideration as speedily as possible. The greatest cru?h of work will be in the senate, and if all the impoitant bills ponding in that branch are to be disposed of, to gether with the regular appropriation bills, little time will be le't for the discussion of ary special legislation which the president may recommend in his message, such as the piovis'.on fcr the proposed tariff commission. One of the first things to come up in the senate will be the bill providing for the admission of the territories, of Oklahoma, Arizona and New Mexico to statehood. Eef.ro the adjournment of the last session an agreement was reached by which the committee on territories is to submit a report on this bill on Wednesday, December 3, and it is to be made the unfinished business on the tenth da promises t be the bid. and oiitical consideration-? Hi ay influence the final action of the sc--".te. The addition of r.ix new mem bers to the senr.te and of nine or ten more votes to the electorcil college !? matter of much importance to the political managers of both parties, and vote3 may be influenced by the consid eration of which party will obtain the greater advantage thereby. Oklahoma until the late election had been regard ed as safely republican. New Mexico and Arizona have usually been demo cratic, although tho i e publican', carried New Mexico in thi last two elections. Oklahoma has superior claims to state hood on the score of population, es pecially if the plan, which is now br ing pressed, to add Indian territory to it and admit the whol? as one state, :? carried out. If Oklahoma stood alone, therefore, there would be little doubt of her admission, but she is tied up in the pending bill with the other territor iees, and there is considerable opposi tion to the others, and e?pfciai!y to ' Arizona. Some of the members oC the I committee on territories, including Senator Beveridge, the chairman, are now making a tour of the territories which will be completed tomorrow, for the purpose of studying the question on the ground. There is also to be a meet ing ofthe leading advocates of state hood in Washington this week, and delegations are to be sent from all the territories a3 soon as congreES meets. The indications all point to a prolonged debate which may keep the statehood bill before the senate or r.everal weeks. Much of the time of the senate will also be taken up with t"he subject of Cuban reciprocity, either in the shape of discussion on the pending bill v.hicn passed the house at the last session and was held up by the beet interests, r in consideration of the treaty which is now being negotiated in lla'u;ia. An other house bill now before the senate cn which action is to be urged is the Lill. ir the restriction of immigration. In t!ir hnufp th ranst Important measure pending which ban already passed the rcnate is thi ship subsidy bill, which was pending before the committee o:i merchant marine and fisheries when the last session ended. It will be repcrt'ed and will probably be jr.ridercd under a special order limit ing debate. The bill for the establish ment of a department of commerce has also passed the senate and is pending in the house, with every prospect of favorable actio:;. The antl-nnarchy bill was passed by both houses, and was in conference on the adjournment cf the last session. It will become a law. A subject which may give rire to much discussion in both houses, if it ran be brought rp. is the proposition to j-edm-e representation from thore states in which the suffrage is restricted. In addition to these rr.ea3ures thre is the list cf eleven general appropriation bills which congress must pnss if the wheels of th? government are to be frf.pt going. These are the urgent de-tU-li-r.'.y. the general deficiency, the tiny, U-.o r.av.il. the legislative, execu tive and judicial, the pension, the pos tal, the fortifications, the District of ''olur.ibi.i, the agricultural and the sun Cry civil m-as'jj c.-. Some of these bills cause conrij-'rable dlcusk.n. while others are pasrr-d v.itth little debate. George V. Ilanklns. Reputed Million aire, Cannot Meet Liabilities. Chicago, November . 23. George V. Hanklns, once famous as gainbling king, and reputed millionaire, has al most as many dollars in debts piled up ajainst him as he once had in bank ac counts to his credit. Yesterday he filed a petition in involuntary bank ruptcy, which set forth that his entire assets were worth only $11,000, and that against them he had $317,814 in liabili ties. Of his many former properties the only one that is left is a piece of land at Mc Henry, El. In the days of his prosperity, when gambling-houses were openly run on a large scale in Chicago, Hankins mode money fo fast that he could hardly keep track of it. Then he interested himself i.-i racing, and in addition to Vfttir. at the tracks and"- breeding howes. he became a heavy shareholder in a number of racing tracks, and made money farter than ever. Later on he planned a series of investments in big apartment houses on the south side, but mortgaged all his buildings, and when the thirteenth was put up he found it -vas as far as he could go. Since then he has steadily lost ground. Last summer the final blow came through the Kenilworth race track at Eulfalu. which cost him heavily. Hnn kiiiij' heaviest creditors are S.

Canadian imports from the United States con tinue to grow more rapidly than those from the Cnited Kingdom, despite the legislation of 1SH7 in favor of products of the United Kingdom. In that year. it will be remembered, the Canadian j tariff laws and regulations were so ad- j justed as to give an immediate reduc- I tion, beginning with AprIL 1S37, of 12',i j per cent in tariff rates on imports from J the United Kingdom, with a further I provision that another 12Vs per cent reduction should occur in ISPS.
