Tho folloitingis President Warner's statement: It was unanimously agreed in tho conference: First?That tho monoy question is, and will continue to be, the paramount iisue till it is settled, and settled rightly and on sound principles; and that it can bo displaced by no other. Second?That tho first battle is for the next Congress. Third?That to achieve rosults the lilver men must not only stay silver men aftor they roach CongresB, but they must there unite and, putting silver above party, work incessantly to accomplish the object for which they were olected." A number of delegates were in favor of organizing a new party out and out, with the declaration as made on tho inonoy question aa the solo isauo, and leaving tho way open for tho alliliation of not only the People's party, but of the eix millions who refused to vote at all at tho last elections, but the conference was not called for such a purpose, nrnl a majority of tho delegates present believod ihe course finally agreed upon to ho tho bettor policy in tho coininir Congressional elections. Tho conforencfi recommended that the bi-metnllic league urgently suggest to friends of silver everywhere, in all parties, that they support for tho Fifty-fourth Congress only such candidates as wiil pledge themselves in nominating conventions, and openly and publicly in their canvass for election to tho following action in case of their election. , "That thoy will ontor into no party cnucus that will blind or restrain them from voting and acting in tho Fiftyfourth congress, .othorwiso than as given in ifieir pledges 10 uio poopiu uuiuro mo election; but that thoy will unite with others who are.in favor of tho restoration of tho bi-metallic standard of money by the free and unrestricted coinago of both gold and silver, on tho ratio of nixteon to one, as before tho act of 1873, and tho issuo of tho general government of tho paper currency without tho intervention of banks and against the issue of bonds to buy gold, and that thoy will act and voto on all matten during their term as member of the Fifty-fourth congress to secure this end, and especially in theelection of speaker and in tho organization of the house and tho voto for Prosidontof tho United States in tho event if an election of a president falls to tho house of representatives.

TIIE WEEK IN CONGRESS. Will Adjourn Thurnday Until After Now Years?Tim Hawaiian Affair. Washington, D. C? Doc. 17.?It is tho present intention of the powers that bo in Congress to adjourn for tho holiday rec<M?s next Thursday until January 4 of tho now year. The tariff dobato which the Democratic leaders had hoped to ontor upon before adjournment, cannot now begin until after tho recess, although the bill bo roported on Tuesday or Wodnesday. The four days before the adjournment promise to bo busy ones. Alter tho urgent deficiency is disposed tho Now Mexico statehood bill, which is tho special order after tho morning hour, will again come forward, and it isoxpected that it will go through to-morrow afternoon or Tuesday, provided tho Democratic quorum remains intact. If tho Republicans filibuster and tho quorum breaks, tho house mny bo dead-locked for tho rest of tho week, as far aa businoss aftor tho morning hour is concerned. the hawaiian matter. Tho transmission of tho Hawaiian correspondence by tho President may lead to so in o debate on this question in tho open house. Much, however, will depend upon tho nature of tho correspondence, and the instructions given to .Minister Willis aud tho tenor of tho President's message. On tho highest authority it can be stated that tho President's meisaeo transmitting the correspondence will show that tho administration has dono all in its power by tho aid of diplomacy to fight the wrong from its standpoint done the Hawaiian monarchy, and that the situation is now one for the Congress of the United Statos to deal with. In other words, that diplomacy has failed to restore the conditions existing prior to tho revolution, and Congress must now decide whether other means are to bo employed. The meisogo will also romovo tho last doubt about a disagreement betweon tho President and his secretary of state. It will show that Mr. Cleveland and Secretary Gresbtm have boon in porfect accord from the first. _ "B, & H." Onyx Tables and Lamps. No other goods like thorn. To be had w L G. Dillon & Co'tj.

Inquiry develops tho fact that tho committee will probably not tako up any of the bills for serious con- t sideration prior to tho Christmas holidays. Tho admission of Utah, Arizona, Now Mexico and Oklahoma would result in ire RftiLtini' oiirht niuv finniitorn. all of whom m would probably be sil ver men.

Pittsburgh, Pa., Dec. 17.?Pittsburgh >n and glass workers and their broth n all over this country nro alarmod er tbo possibility of tho Wilson tariff II. Within the past fow days a secret cular on"tho matter has boon sent to i various lodges from tho lieadquarrs of tho Amalgampted Association in ttsburgh. The document bears tho dato of icembor 13 and tbo official seal of tho isociation. It is addressed to tho Icors and members of subordinate iffes. Tho text follows in full: Brothers:?The threatened changes tho present tariff laws aflect our inrosts as iron and stool workers so inrionsly as to call for active opposition their adoption. Tho Wilson tariff 11 is to bo roportod to tho houso witha fow days. This measure proposos dical reductions in nearly all of tho Dtal schedules, and in soino the most irming cuts are made, whilo in others is proposed to romovo tho duty en Wo are porsuaded that should this 11 be made law vory dinaatroua consciences will follow to the branches of r trade affected by the changos. We are not uniniudtul of the difficul>a that have confronted us during sevtil months past, nor of the disposi>n shown by somo employers to deny e right of organization 10 their worken, neither do we shut out froin our aw the natural reluctance felt by tgo workors to join in preventing rcictiona in tariii rates when presuma y such reduction would bo felt sgrisly by thoso samo employers, whose tagonism to organizou iabor entitles em to no consideration at labor's tuds. It ia indisputable that a greater oney of protection cannot well be irnagod than the employer who prevents 3 workmen from associating with cb other to bettor protect their mutuinterests. Too much of this spirit ,s been shown by omployers, but this list not be permitted to influonco us inactivity when such extromely danrous legislation as the Wilson bill is oposed. In tlio event of the bill passing it is re to bring the condition of our trade n state that will prove to our diaadntago. WHERE LABOR WII.L SUFFER. Labor will be inndo to auflor, and it 11 bo found that that which it is osuaibly intended to affect the moat rioualv, viz., the profits of manufacrora will remain but little injured, it the losses will bo transferred to the ouldorB of labor. Anion*? the more serious features of e bill is the placing on the free list of tton ties; thia moans disaster to this anch of our trade. The tin and sheet dustry are objects of attack; the cut the case of tin is such, should it bo ma a law, an to arrest the farther owth of this industry, and in all obability cause the cessation of tin iking in this country. Whon we reornber the rapid growth and wonderI spread of tho tin industry during a short time it has been possible to oduce it hero, it seems almost inedible that it i9 proposed to stamp it t. All products of tha mill are mora less injuriously affected by the praised change, and tho temptation to asion and undervaluation hold out by advalorem character of tho Wilson II adds to its power for evil. Tho many and various ways in which is bill, if passed, would injuro our ido cannot bo adequately stated/viththe Bcopo of this circular. Wo have deomad it our duty to call is matter to the attention of our memrs with a view to having thorn direot eir influence against the enactment of 0 new bill.
