THURSDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 20, 1891—TEN PAGES. HILLS FOR SPEAKER. Senator Carlisle Endorses the Texas Man. (- He Will Make a Model Presid ing Officer. Tariff Reform Is the True Demo cratic Shibboleth. Life at Point Barrow, Alaska—The Kf tlcaoy or the Marine Life Sarins Service—Genera! News ■ (Meanings. Associated Pros* Dispatches. Nicw York, Nov. 26.—Under date of November 17th, Congressman J. D. Warner wrote to Senator Carlisle in ref erence to Congressman Mills's candi dacy for tbe speakership, saying, in part, that he recognizes the strength of Mills's claim, based not only on his record, bat the fact that "every Demo cratic member of congress whom I know, in favor of relegating tariff reform to rear, is opposed to Mr. Mills." It is, however asserted, says Mr. Warner, that Mills is unfitted by temperament to make a dignified and effective presiding officer. Warner begged Carlisle's opin ion on the subject. Senator Carlisle, in reply, refutes the assertion, and says he is sure if Mill iB elected no one will ever have just cause to complain of his demeanor or general course on political questions. Referrism to tbe unfortunate disposition in sonjß quarters to subordinate the question ow tariff reform to others loss important to the people and dangerous to the har mony and success of the Democratic party, the Senator says: "Upon the tariff question we are practically united, while upon tbe silver question, and per> baps some othes, there are wide and ' honest differences of opinion among the members of our party, which can only be reconciled by patient deliberation. Why should we, on the eve of a great national contest, when vic tory i| almost within onr grasp, abandon or ignore the vital issue upon which we are united and waste onr strength in fruitless controversy over questions which can better be adjusted after it has been determined what part of their own earnings tbe people shall be permitted to keep. The first duty of the Democratic party is to change the laws under which the earnings of the people are taken away from them, by unjust taxation for private purposes, and whoever proposes to.postpone . tho performance of this duty, in order to in augurate among ourselves war over.the silver question or any other, is not I wise counsellor, and would not make a safe leader." IN THE LAND OF ICE. Superintendent Borden's Keport ef Life at Point Barrow. Washington, Nov. 25. —Superintend- ent Borden of tbe refuge station at Point Barrow, Alaska, in a report dated August nth, says he has heard nothing from ships this year, and as it is getting late and winter is setting in, it is doubtful if any will arrive. The ice is in heavy masses and very compact, and extends off shore from the bar as far ns the eye can reach. Forty tons of coal and stores sufficient are ou hand to carry them com fortably, unless some disaster befalls the ships another year. The winter has been mild, with much pleasant weather. The coldest weather was in January, when trie thermometer stood 49.9 de grees below. The superintendent expresses the opinion tbat a refuge station filled with rough sailors of different nationalities, is not tbe proper place for a native school, and suggests other provisions for the education of the young natives. He reports the wreck of the Bchooner Silver Wave in October last, and the as sistance rendered the crew. He also tells of a conspiracy formed against him by a gang of Beamen, one of whom, Lar son, made an attempt to kill him with a club. Larson was placed in irons and taken to a place of safety. Borden says in the past year at Cape Smythe village were but four births. There were seventeen deaths, including the principal native chief, who died from alcoholism. One of the reasons of tbe lowness of tbe birth rate, is the women's fear of the treatment they get during confinement, being placed in a snow house with a limited amount of food, and all communication with them prohibited.

London, Nov. 25.—Although the re strictions have been entirely removed from the use of the cable for news trans mission from Brazil, very few dispatches are being received.
