A Bill to Abrogate It on Imports frorr
TALK ABOUT THE CURRENCY
Tha Labor Arbltratloa BUI Farormbly Re.
ported from tha Committee The
Enid Townelt Patent Directed
to, Da Iaaaad.
Washington, Jan. 93. Chairman Wil
son, of the ways and means committee,
yesterday reported to the house .the
bill to abrogate the discriminating
duty of one-tenth of a oent a pound on
augur Imported from countries paying
a bounty on exports. The report ac
companying the bill expresses the
opinion that It does not believe It was
the Intention or desire of congress in
t!ie last tariff act iu -imposing the ad
ditional duty on all sugars coming
from countries paying a bounty on
exports thereof to give ground for com
plaint to foreign nations of any viola
tion on onrpartof longstanding treaty
obligations, and least of all to abro
gate such treaties. Both Germany and
Austria, however, have protested
against the discriminating duty, hold
ing it to be violative of the .most
favored nation clauses, and Germany
(the committee is not accurately In
formed as to Austria-Hungary) is now
making and enforcing trade relations
which prohibit or impede the entrance
of American meats into her markets.
It is almost certain, says the report,
that this unfriendly action of Ger
many is really a retaliation for our dis
crimination against German beet
sujjar. The committee believes that if
the irritation caused by the alleged
violation of our traditional treaty
obligations to Germany is removed,
it will at once open the way for
the removal of discriminations and
prohibitions against the entry of our
beef and hog products into Germany.
Washington, Jan. S3. The gold re
serve in the treasury is now reduced to
below SG'.l.OOO.OOO. There is a steady
drain and it is not improbable that be
fore n week is passed the reservo will
be down to SOO.OOO.OOO. There was
some talk among the members of the
currency committee of the house yes
terday of a new proposition which it is
said has the indorsement of the ad
ministration. It was to the effect that
the 5180,000,000 worth of bullion that
was purchased under the provisions of
the Sherman law should be coined into
standard silver dollars, and this coin-
ago to be anticipated by the issuing of
silver notes. Of this sum 8124,000,000
was to be utilized in taking up and re
tiring the 81, $2, $5 greenbacks and
Sherman notes, and 850,000,000 remain
ing to be used as an assessment of the
government und employed to meet cur
rent expenses. With this was to be a
provision allowing the secretary of the
treasury to issue low-interest bonds to
maintain the parity of the metals.
It is clear that the most practical
way to do anything would be for
the senate to take action first A bill
passed by the senate would be very apt
to receive proper consideration in the
house, but as long as the feeling is
strong in the house that no measure
which can pass that body will receive
even decent consideration by the sen
ate there will not be much anxiety in
the house to get to work seriously.
Unless congress does something the
secretary will have to advertise for 5
per cent, bonds within a month, and
it is not likely from present appear
ances, that he can dispose of them on
as favorable terms as he did the last
ARBITRATION LABOR BILL.
Washington, Jan. 23. The amended
bill for the settlement of labor disputes
by means of an arbitration committee
has been reported favorably from the
committee on labor with minor changes
in verbiage. "The national and state
legislative bodies, " says the report,
"are not so constituted as to be able to
give proper time to the examination of
the Industrial matters presented In this
bill, nor are they made op equally of
representative men, such as Is proposed
by this commission; nor are they non
partisan. This commission can hear,
consider and recommend in a shorter
time, and with leas expense for the
best good of all, than can be accom
plished by a legislative body or in any
other way. Congress . is the proper
body to authorize the appointment of
such a commission, as It is composed of
members coining from all parts of
