AT THE CAPITAL Doings in Both Houses of Congress. Plumb Introduces a New Finan cial Measure. Senator Berry Bucks Against the Force Bill. The House Refuses to Move Oensral - Grant's Bonss—A Cabinet Meeting, Etc. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Dec. 9. —In the senate, today, the bill introduced at last session to establish a public storehouse for farm products, in each county within the limits of the repub.lic, was reported back adversely and indefinitely post poned. Plumb introduced a bill to reduce the amount of United States bonds required of national banks, and replace their sur rendered notes, and to provide for the free coinage of silver. Referred to the committee on finance. He also offered an amendment (in the same terms) to the bill now on the calendar, so that the matter can be brought before the senate independently of the report of the finance committee. In doing so, he gave notice that if the elections bill is not disposed of at an early day, he would move to lay it aside for the time being, in order that the bill just introduced by him, and all other measures relating to the financial condi tion of the country, could be considered. McPherßon offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the secretary of the treasury for a certified copy of the accounts of John I. Davenport, chief supervisor of elections in the southern district of New York, for the elections of '84, '86 and '88. A resolution by Jones, of Arkansas, calling on the attorney general for a statement of the moneys paid, or called for, by the supervisors of the first and second congressional districts of Arkan sas, in connection with the iate election, was agreed to after a etatement of Jones that he had seen a newspaper report to the effect that the supervisor presented an account for $6000. The election bill was then taken up, and Berry spoke in opposition. As an illustration of the bad effects of such a law, he referred to the ap pointment by United States Circuit Judge Williams, in Arkansas, of John McClure, as chief supervisor of elec tions. Judge Williams, he said, lost the confidence of a large portion of the peo ple of Arkansas on account of his im posing on them the very worst man in all Ar- ansas to exercise the high func tions cf that office. The same thing might occur in all the other states, the supervisors holding their offices for life. If the circuit court judges were Demo crats (as they are now for the most part Republicans), this bill would not be ad vocated on the other side of the cham ber. It was, therefore, a partisan measure. Berry savagely scored Supervisor Mc- Clure, and entered an earnest protest against the bill as a measure designed to legalize fraud. Daniel sooke briefly, after which George obtained the floor. Aldrich, from the finance committee, reported the house bill to authorize the payment of a rebate in certain cases (to correct the enrollment of the tariff bill) and asked Unanimous consent to have it considered, but Plumb objected, and the bill went on the calendar. Adjourned. IN THE HOUSE, A New Member From California Sworn In—Grant's Remain*, Etc.

The navy department has issued orders for the shipment from the Wash ington factory to the Mare "Island navy yard of two eight-inch guns for the Charleston. These guns were not finished at the time the Charleston was put in commission, and four-inch guns were substituted for them temporarily.

Washington, Dec. 9. —The annual re port of the Maritime Canal company, of Nicaragua, covering the year ended December 1, 1890, shows that during that time work has been prosecuted with energy, and that great progress has been made. The final plans and detailed sur veys have been completed and verified. Parts of the San Juanillo, Deseado, San Francisco and other navigable streams have been cleared of snags and other obstructions, and several miles of the route of the channel haß been grubbed and made ready for dredging. About 100,000 cubic yards of the canal has already been excavated, and several miles of aqueduct to supply fresh moun tain water to the company's headquar ters has been completed. Ten miles of railroad, now under construction from the Atlantic port to the divide, is now practically completed. Very satisfac tory progress has been made on the breakwater to protect the Atlantic har bor from shifting sands. During the year the company pur chased a dredging plant at Panama, and the greater part of it has been trans ferred to Greytown. Great improve ment in the hospital service was made during the year. The very important work of dredging the harbor of San Juan Del Norte has been energetically prose cuted. The health of the employees was very good, and there were nb deaths from fever in the past three months. Since the organization of the com pany 10,145 shares of capital stock have been subscribed, aggregating $1,014,500, most of which has been paid in. Since organization the company has expended for work and material $772,263 in cash, and $2,000,060 of full paid capital stock, and is obligated for $4,298,000 of its first mortgage bonds. The liabilities of the company consist oi amounts still due un der the concessions granted it, and the $4,298,000 bonds above mentioned, and cash liabilities not exceeding $50,000. REAPPORTIONMENT.

Wauamaker Refuses to Handle Mexican Lottery Circulars. Washington, Dec. 9. —It is stated at the postofflce department that the mails sent from Mexico into the United States have recently been burdened with circu lars of Mexican lotteries, inclosed in sealed envelopes, the corners of which were clipped and postage paid at the rate of one cent, which is permissible under the laws of Mexico. Under tbe laws of the United States the enclosure of such circulars in sealed envelopes would require them to be held for post age, and refuse of admission to the mails as printed matter. The postmaster general has been in correspondence with the director-general of posts of Mexico, on this subject, and it has been agreed that the lottery circulars referred to shall no longer be carried in the mails nor delivered to addresses in this country.

That United States mint certificates shall be issued equal in amount to the national bank notes retired since 1882, and hereafter retired. That the present silver coinage law shall be amended, so as to direct the secretary of the treasury to purchase all the silver bullion ottered at the market price, not to exceed $1 for 371.25 grains of pure sil ver, and issue treasury notes in pay ment.
