Washington, Feb. 8. —The report of [the committee on rulea on tbe eilver ■question will come up in the house to morrow. This afternoon the advocates of the repeal of the Sherman act were in conference. Their hopes of securing a -cloture are growing less as tbe time for taking tbe vote approaches. The ma jority of the Democrats are against it end the effort to secure support from •the Republicans appears to have failed. The western leaders have a list of between 30 and 40 Repub licans who they say will oppose the taking up of the silver question at | this time. Unless there should unex pectedly be a change in the present situ ation on the cloture, it will become nec essary, after that proposition is defeated, to decide on the course to be pursued. The anti-silver men will then change their tactics and vote for the adoption t of the rules committee's report, while ; the free coinage men will vote against even consideration for silver at this ,time.

It provides for the ex j change of these notes for certificates, i which the hanks may count aB part of rtheir legal reserves. The proposed I change will make no difference except to the banks. The committee decided that the time tomorrow and Friday should be equally divided between the p silver and anti-silver men, Mr. Bacon to [.control the time on one side and Messrs. | Cox of Tennessee and Townsend of Col lorado on the other Bide. PENSION REFORMS. •V Radical Change Proposed in the Present Folioy. Washington, Feb. B.—Unless all mdi! -! cations fail there will be some very in teresting debates and sharp maneuver : ing on the floor of the house when the pension appropriations bill is taken up lor consideration. A radical change in the pension policy is proposed. The •change will be backed up by a majority of the committee on appropriations and .will be fought tooth and nail by the Re publican minority, assisted by Repre sentative Holman, chairman of the comr ;«mittee. The proposed change in the pension policy has in view a consider able reduction of the pension rolls and iof the enormous amount now paid out I for pensions by purging the lists of the (.names of some ail those now on it and (dry making more difficult the procure ■ ment, in some cases, of pensions. It lis proposed to change the law in t some respects and also a new policy j,is to be inaugurated so far as the admin istration of the law is concerned by .turning over the whole pension bureau to the war department.

B.—There is no longer any hope among the Republican employees of the senate, telegraphs a Washington special correspondent," that they will be able to hold their places.

Serious Phase of the Financial Situation. Uncle Sam's Stock of the Yellow Metal Exhausted. Private Vault* Drawn Upon to Supply the Demand for Export to Europe Which Shows No Signs of Decreasing. 1 By the Associated Press. New York, Feb. 7.—A local paper in the morning will say: The United States treasury is practically empty of gold and New York banks are obliged to come to the relief of the government. That is a serious situation that confronts the secretary of the treasury and the financiers of the country. The drain of American gold coin to Europe has at last exhausted the resources of the gov ernment, and the private stores in the vaults have been drawn upon to tide over the emergency. The secret has been well kept, but of $$3,600,000 in American gold that was shipped to Europe last Saturday $2,000,000 was loaned to the sub-treasury by banks of this city. Tho entire supply of gold in the vaults of the United States treasury today is reduced to $108,176,938. Of this only $8,176,938 is free gold; the re maining $100,000,000 must be by law held in the treasury for the redemption of a like amount of legal tender notes whioh have been issued againßt it. Nor has the drain of gold stopped. Arrangements were made by foreign bankers today for the shipment of $3, --000,000 in gold next Saturday. Other shipments will probably be heard from tomorrow, and it is the impression in Wall street today that this week's ex ports will reach about $5,000,000. This would leave only a little over $3,000,000 free gold in the treasury, probably hard ly sufficient for a single week's supply. Since Monday actual short sterling rates of exchange have gone up from to $4.88, less commißsion. George G. Williams, president of the New York Clearing House association, and also president of the Chemical Na tional bank, spent a great deal of time yesterday arranging for a further loan of gold to the treasury department. He went to several banks and appealed that for the public good they should join in contributing of the gold reserves enough to keep up tbe supply of free gold in the treasury to meet all demands until steps can be taken to otherwise meet the emergency. It is understood his appeals were suc cessful in all instances. Four banks had already advanced $2,000,000 of gold last Friday to meet the demands for Saturday's exports. SANTA MONICA'S WHARF.

A fine drizzling rain was falling while there, hut the crowd disre- , garded a little wetting and spent the en tire time inspecting the company's big i enterprise. Mr. John M. Orawley, as- j sistant-general passenger and freight agent, who extended the courtesy to tbe chamber, was present during the entire trip, and showed the various points of interest about the wharf. A 1 short stay was made at Santa Monica 1 proper. The train reached Los Angeles about 4:30 o'clock.

"I !">. a been deaf and at times nearly blind," said Miss Hannah Siepn, iv conversation with the reporter In regard to her case. Miss Skeen is an intelligent young lady, and any one can see at a glance that she means inst what she says when speaking of her remarkable recovery at the hands of l)r, De Monco and associates MISS HANNAH BKEEN, OASIS, UTAH, "I suffered untold misery with pains over my eyes and blinding headaches. The pain was so inicnse I would be obliged to walk the floor half the night before I could rest with auy de gree of comfort. What sleep I obtained didnot refresh me. I felt all tired out when 1 arose in the morning, in fact I felt tired all the time. I seemed to have no ambition. "My nose would stop up and large lumps would form in my nostrils. The mucus would drop back iulo my throat, causing a constant hawking and spitting, which was very diagroe able. My throat became irritated and sore. When eating, the food did not taste natural. Riding iv an elevator always made me very sick. "Jlv hearing had become so, Jisa3.lv»e"a«»~» ing aud buzzing noia...*> Htlw v_;,. v were almost unbearable. . "I consulted a physician, but ho did not seem to understand my oase. Patent medicines I gave up long ago, and there seemed to be no relief lor mo. At last I was advised by my friends to place myself under treatment of JJr, De Monco and associates. I did so, and am most happy to state that my rapid recovery under their "skillful OBro was a complete surprise, as I had given up all hopes of ever being benefited. Mj eyes are strong and well and my hearing lestored. All my other former annoying Symplons have leit me. I can not express my feeling strong enough ln tbe praise of Dr. De Monco and associates' method of treating chronic diseases and the success thoy attained lv my case. I would advise all persons suffer ing Irom chronic troubles to at once place their case with these specialists." No burning:, no cautery, no caustic, no nitrate of silver used.
