I TIiIm Wcck'H Debate. I W.HIH.VCTO.V, D. C., May 13.?This | week will be memorable in the annum 01 j I tariir debate. Not only will it see tlie v I dose of the general debate on the tariir t hill, but it will Ik; eonspicuous by reason of tlx* number of .fine speakers who will t Ik- heard. To hear Randall, the two r Hrecken ridges, McKinley, Reed and t Carlisle make set speeches in one week t docs not often happen. The exact day } on which the last speech will be deliv- v ennl will not be positively determined ^ until Jlomlay, when the Committee on J Wajrsind Means have concluded to set- t? fie tbw jH?int. g Under tin- rule adopted on the 25th of Jut month, the general debate would n conclude on Wednesday next, there <1 bavin;' been one day on which a special C orl'-r intervened and the debate ?us- p jiended, but as the diseussion has con- tl tinned, inure members have expressed di their desire for an opportunity to spenk is on the subject. At (irst there was a si .iiin,.iil?v in t/ettimr sneakers enough to tc occupy tin* time, but "latterly the mom- <> Ih'W have begun to appreciate that this is tlit? great debate of the session, and h: an* now only too anxious to be allowed fr to participate. o1 Thcre?are about twenty men on eaeli ti side of the house, or forty in all, who ei an- not on the present list of speakers, tl and who are desirous of being allotted F time. For these reasons Mr. Mills is M willing to extend the time until Satur- 01 dav. lie desires that every member fr shall be given the opportunity to ex- tl press himself on this subject, and that ai none of them shall feel themselves in is ' any way affronted. This will modify, in bi softie degree, the programme heretofore w detailed in these dispatches. m WKONKSDAY FOlt lUNOAfX. Mr. Kandall has determined to take ^ part in the debate, and, jus at present ar- tl ranged, he will speak to an overflowing tl house on Wednesday. This date is how- ^ ever subject to change, from the fact M that the Labor Committee is entitled to 1* that dav, and unless Chairman O'Neill can be Induced to accept a later date, immediately after the close of the general debate, Wednesday will be occupied ai by business from that committee. It is understood, however, that Mr. O'Neill is willing to take either Monday or Tuesday of the week following. di Then "Sunset" Cox, of New York, is Q expected to talk some tune next week, a( on a day to be selected by himself. On Friday will come, the speeches of Colonel P1 Itreck'onridge, of Kentucky, and Mr. itl McKinley, of Ohio. Un Saturday Mr. ai Jieeil, of Maine, will lead oil', and Speakor Carlisle will conclude. On these last two days crowded galleries may be looked c( for, ami every member will be "in his seat, el It is probable that two or three days Jo will be allowed to elapse between the 0j conclusion of the general debate and the commencement of the consideration of the bill under the live minute rule. In J" that case they will be given to committecs. An effort will be made to place a ,l limit to the "five-minute" debate, but C.1 no date has vet been mentioned. Chair- !.V inan Mills was to-day in conference with Keed anil MeKinley on this subject. Mr. Mills nuggestcd" that it would he useless to occupy seven or eight weeks y in the hcaringof amendments ollered by "l the Republicans, and then voting upon l" them. 1 iciMkei It hem to bring the matter j to n test vote at once, by moving to u strike out everything after the enacting r( clause of the Mills bill and to substitute the measure prepared by themselves. ^ lie urged that . 11 Tills WOULD HAVE TIMK and permit the transaction of other busi- in ness l?efore the session closed. Of w course, no detinito answer was returned, but the proposition is being seriously f0 considered by the Republican leaders. jj The Ways*and Means Committee lias been busy in hearing the arguments of jj ineinhers who offered amendments to lt] the taritT bill in the caucus Wedues- f day night. Mr. Kavner, of Mary- n( land, was heard in behalf of his amend- tj liient to retain the existing rate of duty ,j, on glass. Messrs. Johnston and .Simmons, of North Carolina, spoke in favor 0, of the repeal of the internal revenue ()] HVHtein and for some minor changes in ' the bill atleeting local industries in their V. State. Mr. Bacon, of New York, thought ^ the reduction made in the tnritF on Q| cutlery was entirely too great, and j, asked for the restoration of at least a ... part of it. In talking with the correspon- /j dent to-day, Mr. Mills said: "We are w considering these amendments in a u| spirit i?f compromise, and we are ?lisp<?sed to make the changes asked for in H| those cases where we are convintAd that the weight of evidence tends that way. rj We appreciate the fact that we are not infallible in that we may have mado H mistakes. When these are pointed out to us we are willing to amend them." s N" Haul action has been taken on any N ol the amendments that have thus far ? lx't-n considered. This will be nostponed n until all the hearings have been con- Jj chuUM. Then the committee will make J' it* r. |Hirt and present it to the caucus. It is exported that this will be held on . either Wednesday or Thursday night. | WHY MILLS IS IIOPKFt'L. Mr. Mills is confident that his plan of making the bill a party matter will bo a very successful one in the end. As he expressed it this afternoon, "If any 1 Denim-rat chooses, when the time comes, to vote against the passage of the bill an<l stab the heart of the Democratic a party, the blood will bo on his hands * and not on ours." ll<' is determined to leave no stone 1 unturned in order to secure success with 1 this bill, and at present it is admitted by g candid Republicans that the chances K'ein to be much in its favor. The three * Independents in the House, Messrs. c Anderson, of Iowa, Smith, of Wiscon- f .mil imjiKiiiH, oi > lrpmiu, w>k?*h"'? *?th a Republican, Mr. Fitch, of New I lork, will all vote for the bill. To off- p wt this, however, Mr. Kauto Nelson, of c Minnesota, who has been counted as o ?n?' of thy Republicans who would sup- i |*>rt the measure, has been whipped i >nt.? line and has stated that ho woulil i not vote for it. 1 The number <?f Democrats who will t follow Mr. Randall's lead is very uncer- 1 tain, but Mr. Mills and other members ?>f the Ways and Means Committee, do- ! elare their confidence thattho protection i Democrats, united with the Republican*, will not In; able to defeat the pass- < ape of the bill. Whether this will prove < true remains to bo seen, but it is certain ] that Mr. Milla' action in caucusing on i the bill htiM not strengthened Mr. Kan- i dall's hands. 1 l'??t Southern .Mull*.

Tliu Committee on f >pncy will probably report in favor of i ecting four bishops. This will cause a i ing debate, as there are a large number 1 ' the delegates who believe that there j lould be at least six or seven more t ishops. They claim that the bishops j Ave too much work to do, and that with larger number the work of the church in he extended. Ainoug the candiites is Dr. A. B. Leonard, formerly of ittsburgh. 1 Kev. fir.

"In the language of Dr. urry," said Bishop Taylor,;"to anybody ho accuses me of disloyalty, I deny the llegation and defy the alligator." 1 Bishop Taylor furnished an exhibit of i :atistics showing the growth in all mat rs connected with his mission to Libeia since 1884.

It has written to every Catholic Bishop or Archbishop in America under whose ecclesiastical jurisdiction Mgr. Bouland lias been to inquire as to lus character and standing L>r. Aleigh II. Mackay said: "The Monsignor's record becomes clearer every day. There uan be no doubt of the result.

New Yobk, May 13,?The Catholic Newt has received the following cablegram from Rev. Francis Steflens, its correspondent in Rome: The recent rescript of the Holy Father on the Irish question is an indication of the Papal policy to be pursued with respect to the agitation now being cameo on m the j Emerald Isle. Archbishop Walsh, of Dublin, had many audiences with His Holiness on the subject The Pope affirms that, as far as is in his power he will protect the interests of the Irish people, but that he will condemn everything in the land war of a revolutionary nature. The Holy Father has gone further, and 1 has informed the English Government j that ho expects them to do something for the Irish tenant farmers. This was insisted on by the Papal Secretary of State in his conference with the Duke of Norfolk. A further explanation of this decree is that it was inspired by the request of a few Irish Bishops, whobrought tho matter to the Vatican's attention for official action. It is known that Paraell was opposed to the plan of campaign and h? never taken part in it. It is believed in Rome that the interests of Ireland can be preserved by means that will not antagonize public sentiment and bring the Irish cause into disfavor.

ENGLAND'S ARMY AND NAVY I I Sold to be In a Bod Way?Public Frightened I at the Condition of Tiling*. London, May 13.?When the usually stolid Englishman gets frightened he goes all to pieces, and his symptoms are highly entertaining. Just at this moment the horrible conviction iB rampant ? ' in the minds of Britons that the song was wrong after all, and that they are ' apt to find themselves slaves almost any " fine day. The angry muttering about the weakness of the navy and of the country's fliihtinc apparatus generally, has grown into a storm of hysterical indignation. Instead of singing; "We've got the . men, weVe irot the snips, we've got the [ money too," this unhappy people are K( crying out: "We've not got any men or dc t any ships worth mentioning; they won't Rj i spend our money to buy\?m, and we could not lick Bulgaria or Switzerland." The trouble was started by Lord ov 1 Charles Beresford, who worked his way th , into a high position in the navy, found Co . that things were in a very rotten condi- an r tion, with jobbery, corruption and incompetency plentiful, and said so. Beresford seems a fairly good reproduc- rie . tion of the old, devil-may-care type of i0e British tar, and he is bow-legged. He j played unlimited and dangerous pranks . as a middy, fought a regular prize fight nv later on and won it, in a Wnitechapel Ar barn on a Sunday morning, and in many 0f other ways has worked into the hearts of his countrymen. While Beresford t has been exposing the weakness of the t navy, Lord Wolsely has been doing as much for the army, and incidentally explaining how, besides having a wgak p.* army, England utterly lacked the forti- j lication to keep back the strong armies of other countries. Hosts of lesser lights have been making speeches and writing articles to add A 1 to the panic, and even the old Duke of 81 Cambridge himself, cousin to the Queen S aud Commander-in-Chief of the army, ter has proclaimed that things were wrong by begging on every conceivable occasion for money to put them right. The l)la Government is very sensitive to these poi attacks, which are regularly aggravated pie by the malicious buzzing of Lord Kan- . dolph Churchill. ji_( Last night, in the Upper House, Lord j Salisbury miule an attack upon Lord j. ] Wolsely" for the latter's indiscreet disclosures, an attack so bitter that it is difficult to see how Wolsely will bo able to avoid resigning. This will add fuel to the ilainc, for Wolsely, having partly tj through ability, but largely through rtlJ1 favoritism, had every opportunity of Jj" showing ofF in critical times, has come . to be known as "our only general." ^ Lord Beresford, nothing if not plucky, . and who has already resigned because the admiralty would not do as he said, is now challenging them to try him by , x'ourt martial and dismiss him iu dis grace from the service if they can prove that he has exaggerated and made statements not founded on fuct. ' . He is liable to cause a scare and a panic. ( It is not in the least likely that the admirality will take up the challenge, us L Beresford evidently knows what he is t. talking about. Unfortunately for the J? country tho sole effect of all this scare, , so fur as one can see, will be to extract a . good many millions sterling from the j people's pocket, for little attention is paid to the sensible ones who demand ^ that instead of more money being poured into tho ofllclal rnthole, amateur officialism be pulled up by the roots and good men and a properly organized system tu? an uaiuuicu.

London, May 13.?Michael Davitt, in V>1 a speech at Liverpool to-day, said that ^ Irishmen would bo a unit behind mo O'Connell in resenting the pupal re- for script. Ireland had done more for the ^ church among people throughout the ^ English speaking world than any coun- ^oe try, and if this was Rome's gratitude can Irishmen would be likely to ask them- ces selves questions in the matter. "Without |10 wishing his remarks to be construed as J1." an attack on or as showing disrespect to :u< the church, he said that whether the l10 rescript was intended as a political pro- ln nunciamento or not it would be regarded an< and had already been hailed as such by ?n. every coercionist paper from the Timet P01 to the meanest Unionist rag. He was H? confident that the rescript had added three months to Mr. Dillon's sentence. ?J Irishmen were compelled to believe that the rescript was due to English intrigues ^ and Ireland would not accept political , dictation from Korne. , . sta The Father Survived.

James Nicholson stepped on his foot. Nicholson swore at him, and they got up and went out with friends. In u few 1 minutes two pistol shots were heard, and Nicholson was shot twice in the groin. He was picked up ami carried into the How residence, where he was dying last night. Jenkins lived just in the rear of Jlose. He went houie and told his wife ho had shot a man. 5 and if the oilicera came, to tell ; them he was not there. He was wateh[ ed, though, and presently Cant.

Jenkins was sitting on the [ bed with n revolver in bis hand, lie [ threatened the oflicer, but Little was too quick, and shot him in tho thigh. He was taken to the lock-up, nnd is there yet, resting as easy as could be expected.
