And^we should, (or as we are doing a^strictly cash business we do not^have to make those who do pay^for what they buy, pay lor those^who do not. Neither do we have^to employ collectors and pay^them a percentage of what they^collect, nor bookkeepers at large^salaries. All of these things^combined show our expenses to^be a smaller percentage than any^of our competitors in consequence^of which it stands to reason that^\ve^can sell our goods at a smaller^profit than they can.

SpecialIHspstcb to the Standard. Washington,Dec. 4.-One of the Mon^^tana men in the senate did not slop in^the chamber to hear Turpie's great speech^on the force bill. It was Power, who con^^siders Turpie a very commonplace sort of^fellow. He is the senator who spoke of^Powers* a politician with a frugal mind,^snd Power will not forgive that reference.^It was too much like twitting on facts.^The inside talk on the force bill to-day^was to the effect that the republicans^are only making a feint to pass^it and so appear to be ^ yielding^to the president's conceit in^the matter. The shout from Ocala by the^Farmers' alliance has made the western^senators prick up their cars. They are^wondering whether this force bill that^they are ^monkeying^ with is notanother^buzz saw that they would better let alone. Carternow says that the coinage com^^mittee will meet Monday. He expects^that some silver proposition will be taken^up. He does not know anything about^the rumor that has prevailed here that the^free coinage men contemplate attaching^a free coinage amendment to any appro^^priation bill so that the president cannot^kill it with a veto without starving some^branch of the government. He does not^think that will be necessary. ' INTHE SENATE Annsto l^^* Issued to m.u. . Containing^li.ili.ui. I'uih Assails the Fori* 1(111. \Vwiim ton, Dec. 4. - After a lengthy^debate on the Indian question, Hawley's^joint resolution, authorizing the secretary^of war to issue arms and ammunition to^the states of North and South Dakota,was^amended so as to apply to the states of^North and South Dakota, Wyoming and^Nebraska, and passed. Morganintroduced a joint resolution,^which went over until to-morrow, appro^^priating -..'^^' fur an investigation under^the orders of the senate ;c to the causi ^f^the trouble among the Indians. Theelections bill was then taken up^and Pugh addressed the senate in oppo^^sition to it. The bill, be said, was^never intended to be put in operation in^republican districts. It was founded M^one proposition, and that was that state^election officers might he watched,^guarded, and overruled because they were^democrats. The whole conception of the^bill was a transparent and audacious^scheme, having no other end or pur|^ose^than the capture of oemocratic districts^and their transfer to the republican party^in congress, to be used in perpetuating its^supremacy in defiance of the will of the^people. (irayobtained the floor, but he did not^desire to speak this afternoon. Hlair^moved to lay the election bill aside until^to-morrow and take up the displaced^lalwr bill. Hoar gave notice thatafterto-^day he would endeavor to press the^election hill without having it laid aside^tor any other purpose whatever until the^final vote was reached. Cockrellobjected to the labor bill being^taken up, and after a numl^er of hills on^the calendar were passed, the senate ad^^journed. INTHE HOUSE. Cooperof Iudiaus Gives Commissioner^Itaiim a lew Maid Raps. Wishinoton,Dec. 4. The subject of^pensions was considered to-day and Mor^^row explained that the bill appropriated^for the payment of pensions $LV.i,17o,nOO^to bedistrihiited among sMsTae pensioners.^This was the largest number of t^ene-^flriaries ever provided for in any single^item in the statutes of the I'nltcd Stales.^It was estimated that the gross coil for^the I'nitod States of the pensions for 189J^would average *3V 4^ fof each. He be^^lieved there would bo no difficulty next^year. Cooper,of Indiana, cot the floor, re^^viewed all of the charges made against^^ oinnii. sinner Kaum. which formed the^basis of the investigation at the last ses^^sion, and asserted that they all had been^proved. The pension bureau should be^presided over by a man above criticism^and above reproach. During the last^campaign the commission had gone to^Indiana and had invaded his (CooperVi^district. The commissioner's only excuse^was that be might defeat Cooper's election. Thecommissioner had gone to Indiana^to prostitute his high office for partisan^ends. He iCooperi had great veneration^for the [tension bureau and protested that^the. institution should not become a^spawning place for cori^orations or a stall^for the sale of patent rights, nor should it^be presided over by ^moribund and mal^^odorous politicians,^ likened by a repub^^lican paper to a ^bad egg. Sawyerof New York was surprised that^Coo|^er should make his speech at this^time before the case closed. Cooper had^^aid the committee had abandoned any^further investigation, but it had been^clearly the understanding that the com^^mittee should hear further testimony this^session. Sawyer further denied that the^^ hargt - aga.tist Ha no had been prut mI. Aft^-r further debato the committee roee,^and the house adjourned. ANOTHER FREE COINAGE BILL. seuatnr Mew u i and it. i ^.... ..i ,i,,, i.i.i Hssesn Idea or Two. WIWMH tW, D^c. 4 Senator Stewart^J to-day introduced a bill for the free and^I unlimited use of silver as money. It^amends the first section of the present^law by repealing the clause limiting the^I.iir^ b i-e id bullion, and requires the sei^I retary of the treasury to purchase all sil^^ver bullion offered at a price not exceed^^ing SI for three hundred and seventy-^one and iwctily-hve hundredths grains of^pure silver. It also amends the third sec-^lion by requiring the secretary to coin at least12,000,000 ounces per month after the^1st of July next and as much more as may^lie in ^ o ..try to rt di cm the treasury :. ^^..^^issued intue purchase of bullion. Inthe house Bland introduced a hill re^^quiring the secretary of the treasury to^prepare a new series of treasury no-,^commonly called greenbacks, and to issue^them in sums equal to the amount of na^^tional bank notes from time to time sur^^rendered for redemption or cancellation. Blandalso introduced a bill authorising^the issue of a series of legal tender noli -^to meet any deficiencies in the revenues^of the government. The preamble of the |^bill recites that a deficiency in revenues^is now threatened and the country is not^in condition to bear any further taxation. GeneralSrbofleld received a telegram^from i.eiieral Brooks tins afternoon, -ay-^ing that 40 lodges of Indians have left the^Rosebud agency since the removal of the^camp across White river to the edge i^of the had lands and that jhl N^are strong symptoms of disintegration.^About half the Indians seem willing is^come back to the agency.

MILLER'SREPORT. Besays the Failed Mates Caws are Not j^Respected. cVv-iiiNuioN,Dec. 4. Attorney Gen-^eral Miller, in his annual report, says^^Vigilant efforts have been made to en^^force legislation excluding Chinese im^^migration, by the co-operation of the^treasury department. It is l^elieved that^in. ii i attempts to cross the border have^been frustrated, aa have the attempts M^bring the Chinese directly through the^ports of the l ulled States ii|k.n the I'a^cifir. In regard to the reorganization if^the judiciary, it is earnestly hoped that^the legislation, now far advanced, will I^not be |^eriiiitted to fail. Inregarn to the difficulty of enforcing^the law, the attorney general says: Tbu^enforcement of internal revenue laws and j^t inted States election laws is particularly^resisted. Several assassinations of of^^ficers and witnesses, with the purpose of^impeding the execution of the laws and^orders of the t'nitcd States occurred dur^^ing the past year. Willnn the last In days,^a deputy marshal attempted to serve a^warrant fur the arrest of a man for viola^^tion of the postal laws, was shot and in^^stantly kilieil by the man sought to^lie arrested; and on a preliminary ex^^amination before n magistrate of^the state, the prisoner was promptly dis^^charged. It is certainly an anomaly in^government that those who have commit^^ted murders for the pursue of slopping^prosecution in the federal courts should^not only not Ik- punished, but not even he^put upon trial in the state courts. So^long as person's who kill officers, wit^^nesses or jurors for the purpose of imped^^ing the administration of justice cannot^Is- tried and punished in the federal court^as for a minor offense, the admin^^istration of the Tinted States^laws and the laws them a Iv^ s^in many districts will have little respect.^The supreme court recently decided that^there is a ^peace of the United States.^^It is the duty of congress to provide^by law for the preservation of this^^peace^ everywhere and at all times.^In prosecutions for violations of election^laws in several districts, convictions ami^pleas of guilty have I teen obtained^in large numbers of rases. As^an illustration, however, of the .litis-^culties met in such prosecutions,^the district attorney for one district re^^ports in a certain county, a number of^B'hose citizens were convicted of viola^^tions of the election laws, the county^court ordered all Ones and costs assessed^against them in the I'nited Slates court,^to lie paid out of the county treasury; and^in another county a number of whose citi^^zens in Ii ke manner hail been convicted^or pleaded guilty to such offenses in the^I nited States court, $1.'^^^ was actually^paid out of the county treasury ii|^ori such^tines and costs in one day.

The nationalists met^at noon for the fiat her consideration of^Darnell's leadership. All the Irish mem^^bers in London are in attendance. Dar^^nell occupied the 11 air. After the meet^^ing had been call^! to order, one of the^members read a manifesto issued yester^dsy by the Catholic hierarchy m Ireland,^declaring that in consequence of the rev^^elations of theO'Sliea divorce case w hich^convicted 1'arnell nf one of the gravest^offenses known to religion and society.^Catholic Ireland cannot accept as a^leader a man wholly dishonored, and thai^the continuance of his leadership would^imperil the cause of Ireland.

Morley and Hsrcourt, before any^further consideration of the main ques^^tion, information on the departure from^the bill of I ssi, made by Gladstone in his^suggestions affecting the control of the^Irish constabulary and the settlement of^the land question. A prolonged debate^took place on the amendment. Darnellintimated if the p.u i\ took the^responsibility off his shoulders, ami in^^sisted upon the liberal leaders promising^to carry a respectable home rule bill^through tlie commons in the f.n e of ,,||^np|h^sition, he Would retire from the^leadership. He as!,. .1 the meeting to ac^^cept Clancy's resolution, whereu|^on, he^said, an alliance between the national^^ists and liberals Would be renewed. Ilealyrefused to submit to 1'arliidl's^stipulations. Ho declared they wi re i veil^hi youd the lines of the compromise sug^^gested at yesterday's meeting. Atthe opening of the meeting to-day^Sexton denied thai he had ever proposed^tliat I'aruell retire frotu public life, and^said he only meant lie should retire from^the chairmanship of the party. Darnell^piucceded lo deal at length with the^I lancy proposal. He decided lie could^not bind himself to retire until he could^see Gladstone's reply, his position^had been granted him not merely as a^leader of the party, but * as a^leader of the nation. This has been^derived from circumstances in which,^speaking with the greatest respect, his^hearers bad no share. After speaking of^his services in assimilating ami soothing^the prejudices of the discord in ^ elements^of the Irish throughout the world, Darnell^said Youknow and I know there is M man^living, if I am gone, who could succeed^in reconciling the feelings of the Irish^people to the llawarden proposal*. As^you wish to wi'hdraw from me this re^^sponsibility. I think it only rea^^sonable that you should give^judgment on those matters for the benefit^of your constitution. Then-fore I submit^this resolution that the party accept no^home rule bill unit-s it gives immediate^control of the police and the power to^deal with land. Mr. Gladstone is capable^of working to secure a majority at the^elections which will render him indepen^^dent of both Irish and conservative par^^ties.

Healyexpressed amazement at Per-^nell's speech and pi tested against add^^ing new conditions to the Clancy rcsolu^tlon. Darnell, he said, wanted to with^^draw the question of leadership and sub^^stitute a discussion mi home rule. They^could get neither n ught conduct nor^straight answers from him. 1'arnellreplied that he had given his^answer. He regretti d it was not con^^sidered straight. H.it by it he would stand^or fall.
