Mr. Allisons' notion prevail, the final

bnt the bill would in ta a 'autiun be
open to amendment.
No senator has given uotice of an in
tention to speak ou tats bill, but silver
coinage is a subject upon wnieh some
senators at least are never dumb.
It is altogetner unlikely that the
finance committee will be able to re
port the taritt bill to the senate this
week, as the members of that commit
tee are all more or less interested in
the seigniorage bill, and will beans
ions to be in the senate during the de
bate. The sundry civil appropriation bill,
which was called up by Chairman
dryers jnst before the house adjourned
Saturday, will engross the attention of
the house probably all the week. This
is the bill which covers all the great
appropriations of the government, not
included in the t.v general depart
mental appropriation bills and matters
pertaining to Indians and rivers and
It is the omninm gathernom of all
the odds and ends and is the only bill
into which a ::ew appropriation can
afely be injected without running the
rink of being thrown out on a point of
order. The sundry civi! bill for the
present session as reported by the com
mittee on approtirutioiu, carries in
round figures f 32, 300,000, the amount
recommended to ha appropriated by
the estimates was f3-i.38l.O00, the
amount appropriated lor like purposes
for the current year wm 31,710,090.
Among its new or important provis
ions are these, that the secretary of the
treasury may contract for the whole or
any portion of public bnilrtings at
Kansas City, Otutha, St. Paul and
Sioux City, la. .that the pay of cadets
in the revenue service snail be f500 a
year and one ration a day; that the
secretary of war shall employ a veteran
who fought iu the battle of Chatta
nooga as the representative of the
army of the Tennessee to assist in pre
paring the historical tablets of that
army for the national military park ;
that the board of managers of tho Sol
diers' home shall report annually to
the secretary of war; that the soldiers
homes shall be visited annually by an
officer of the inspector general's de
partment, Before the week closes the commit
te on Indian affairs expects to report
tho appropriation hill balloted to it 00'
der the rules. Secretary Hoke Smith
has issued an order transferring the
Indian warehouse from New York to
Chicago, and the north westorn mem
bers of the house are desirous of iiav
ing the warehouse divided between
Chicago and Omaha, the former to be
the puchasing station and the latter
the distributing station.

Vigorous Debates Over the Matter at
Berlin Unlawful Conscription
of an American Citizen..
Berlin, March 11. The debate on
the Russian treaty yesterday disap
pointed the crowded hous. It was be
gun with vigor, but loat, interest rap
idly after Chancellor Von Caprivi and
Freiherr Mtrschal Von Bieborstein
made their short, business like replies
to the attacks of the opposition.
Tho agrarians, in fi tal desperation,
threw off all pretense of argument and
invoked support to their cause in the
nam of loyalty to emperor anu em
pire, but their appeals were treated
with qnit contempt by the house.
During the whole of the debate the
titled Prussian land owners had hardly
a word to say concerning the harmful
influences of the trusty on the grain
growing districts.
That Germany should accept a com
mercial agreem-ntto avert war with
Russia, th-y said, was to degrade the
empire in tho eyes of hur.ipe and to
weaken its influence among the powers.
Several agrarian speakers pleaded the
cause of the Jew baiters, saying that
th treaty would afford the Jewish
usurers further power to prey upon tue
peasant proprietors.
The vote disclos.-d the demoraliza
tion of the parties. s was expected,
the conservative, na onal, liberal and
clerical leaders did not hold their men
together and many voted independ
ently, while others declined to vote at
all. Count Herbert Bismarck answered
"No" when his name was called. The
majority for the treaty is expected to
be still larger at the third reading.
