AT THE CAPITAL.
Congress Re-assembled After the Holiday Recess. SPEAKER REED'S CODE OF RULES. Many New Bills Introduced—Cap tain Seamans Gets His Cov eted Appointment. Associated Press Dispatches to the Hera. ld. Washington, .January 6. — Although the House Committee on Rules did not hold a session during recess, Speaker Reed, who is official Chairman of the committee, had a code of rules drafted for the government of the House during the coming session. He has not yet sub mitted it to the other members of the committee, and consequently is reticent as to the changes proposed. It is under stood the old rules will be largely re adopted; there will be important changes proposed in those which relate to the mode of procedure in the House. A clause will be inserted to enable the Speaker to put a stop to filibustering actions when their object is clearly mani fest, and a change will be made so as to admit of the addition of new legislation to general appropriation bills.

Washington, January 6 —The first gentleman to appear before the Ways and Means Committee this morning was F. W. Cheney, President of the Silk As sociation of America. He said the Sen ate bill was acceptable to him. Britton Richards, Secretary of the same associa' tun, advocated the imposition of a com pound duty on silk. He said about half the silk consumed in this country was of American manufacture. The great ob stacle which the American manufacturer had to contend against was under-valua tion. He did not think that any duty would be laid on raw silk high enough to protect the silk-growers of this couutry without crippling silk manufacture. Philip Walker, chief of the silk bureau of the Department of Agriculture, sub mitted specimens of cocoons and silk produced from them, raised in the United States. He dwelt upon the im portance of building up the silk industry in the United States. The Department of Agriculture had purchased a good many cocoons from the Landed Silk Culture Socioty, which had collected them in California. Joseph Newman, of San Francisco, fa vored the imposition of a duty on raw Bilk, i John Dymond, President of the Sugar Planters' Association, read a memorial, asking for protection sufficient to enable the United States to prodnce its own sugar. Dymond said free sugar from the Sandwich islands did not affect the price of sugar in this country, and was not, therefore, a detriment to the sugar industry of the United States. Ex-Governor Warmouth.of Louisiana, spoke at some length. He said during the political campaign in his State, he had been met at various points by Repre sentative so and so, from Pennsylvania and Ohio and Michigan, in favor of a re duction of 50 per cent, on the tariff on sugar. In face of these speeches he had not been as successful as he would wish, in converting his Democratic friends. Warmouth thought the effect of a bounty after a year's experiment would be the destruction of the sugar industry. "If you want friends in Louisiana." said he, "you must not touch the sugar tariff. We cannot stand a reduction of half a cent a pound. It would be ruinous to the industry, and without sugar the City of New Orleans would be depopu lated." If the committee could guarantee to the planters that a succeeding Con gress would not disturb it, he would be glad to accept a bounty of two cents a pound on the sugar he raised. He wanted, however, to stand on the same ground as other protected industries. Governor Gear remarked: "You don't stand on the same ground with them; you don't produce anything like enough to supply the demands of the country." Warmouth replied: "We bid fair to, if we are given the encouragement ex tended to other industries. What we want is to be let alone." Representative Peters, of Kansas, s id he was interested in silk, Bugar and salt. He asked protection for his silk-raising constituents by a suitable duty on raw silk. He cited statistics showing the Kansas sugar product from sorghum cane, and how it. was increasing under the protective tariff. Mr. Peters doesn't think much of a bounty. He says it is a departure from the tariff policy with which the people are familiar; its imposition would invite the constant agitation of tho question, to the detriment of the industry. Kansas needs additional capital to put up sor ghum sugar mills, but that capital can not be obtained under a bounty. Wit ness, however, argued strongly in favor of the retention of the duty, and turning his remarks into a political vein, said there was a feeling of unrest among the farmers of his State, which if not allayed j might result iv making Kansas, with its 182,000 Republican majority, a Demo I cratic State. Henry I. Oxnart, of Grand Island, Ne braska, made an argument in favor of protection to the beet-sugar industry, predicting that with the retention of the present duty, the root would within twenty years outstrip sugar-cane and sorghum in the production of sugar. The reduction oi the duty would kill the industry. Prof. Wiley, of the Agricultural De partment, did not anticipate very high results from Kansas sorghum, as a 10 per cent article like sorghum could not compete with a 14 per cent article like the beet. Sorghum, however, made ex cellent alcohol, and he thought Kansas stood in its own light in preventing the people from making alcohol. In secret session, Chairman KcKinley was instructed to report tomorrow his Administrative bill. ADMINISTRATIVE PS. 1 IMS W. H. seamans Appointed Register of the I seal Land Office.

Washington, January 0. —In the opin ion in the well known EdelhofT customs case the Supreme Court holds that silk and cotton ribbons, used exclusively as hat trimmings, are dutiable at 20 per cent, as trimmings for bats, bonnets and hoods, but at 50 per cent, as material of which silk is the component of chief value. The Government will by this de cision be compelled to refund about $6,000,000 to importers. Justice Itrewer Seated. Washington, January 6.— Judge David J.
