report chows a deticit for the first three
months of tbe current fiscal year of over
$21,000,000, or at the rate of over $84,
---000,000 for tbe entire year. It shows
actual expenditures the first three
months of over $98.000,000; at the same
rate tbe expenditures for the year would
aKKrea-ete about $394,000,000, or about
$21,000,000 more tban the estimated ex
penses, and would show expenditures
over the actuaU receipts of over $77,000,

cast for tbe whole year is impossible,
but it ie apparent tbat should tbe pres

the end of the year will be about $50,
Stewart of Nevada took the floor
against the amendment of the motion
to amend the journal of Monday, to
show the presence of Teller, who failed
to answer to his mime on roll call.
Dubois (Rep.) oi Idaho regarded the
present as an unfortunate occasion to
attempt to change tbe rules. In respect
to the criticism of himself for not voting
Dubois said it is bis pleasure and delight
to sit in tbe senate, but if bis expulsion
from tbe senate would prevent the pas
sage-of the repeal bill he wonld not hes
itate for a moment.
Palmer (Bern.) of Illinois regarded
Teller's motion as a personal request.
He sarcastically remarked that it waa
discreditable to the senator who made
the request to debate it. Palmer there
upon asked unanniious consent tbat the
request be acceded to. But when Du
bois, Allen and Butler vigorously ob
jected, Palmer withdrew tbe motion.
Quay of Pennsylvania gave notice of
an amendment to the repeal bill pro
viding tbat the act ehall take effect Jan
nary 1, 1896.
Call of Florida opposed any change in
the rules and was followed by Butler of
South Carolina in an impassioned argu
ment against the propositions of Hill
and Mills regarding the rules.
Hill asked Butler to point ont how a
vote could be reached on tbe bill.
Butler replied tbat the majority
should make some concessions in order
to get it through, and if that waa not
done, the bill ought not to pass.
A lengthy discussion ensued between
Hill, Palmer and Butler as to the rights
of the majority.
The galleries applauded indiscreetly
and the vice president threatened to
have them cleared. Bntler took um
brage at the demonstration and eaid:
"If the friende of tbe senator from New
York have gathered here for tbe pur
pose of expressing approbation of his
methods, I should be very glad, Mr.
President, to invite that senator out
npon some street corner where be and
I can have it ont for the benefit of the
Manderson —I rise to call the senator
to order and ask the enforcement of the
rule tbat be ehall take his seat.
The vice-presidtirat directed Butler to
take hie seat. On motion of Harris,
however, Butler was allowed to proceed
and eaid be had not invited tbe senator
to meet him on tbe street corner to fight,
bnt for the purpose of a little legitimate
■tump speaking.
Butler then asked Hill whether he
would be bound by the rules on the pro
position to amend,
"I insist, tbat any restriction in the
rules whereby tbe majority are deprived
of powier, as in the pendingamendment,
is not binding upon the eenate," eaid
Then followed another lengthy and
animated debate between Hill and But
ler as to the respective positions on the
rules question. Hoar, interrupting,
eaid: "If a motion is made to amend
the rules, ana after the debate, in tbe
opinion of their constitutional presiding
officer, has reached a paint which im
plies to his mind tbat farther discus
sion is intended to prevent action, it
would be in his power and would be his
duty to say to the senate: 'Shall I put
this question without further debate
and dilatory motions,' and thereupon
direct tbe yeas and nays to be called,
permitting no man to interfere, and if
tbe majority of the senate answer yea,
it would he his duty to put tbat ques
Butler said, as a fair man the vice
president should resent milking him tbe
depository of power to say when a de- |
bate should terminate, because, in bis
opinion, it is subversive of the very
foundation principles upon which the
government is framed.
Butler closed with an appeal for com
promise, and Palmer was about to ad
dress the eenate, when Teller withdrew
bis motion to amend tbe journal, dis
posing of tbe question pending before
tbe senate.
Tbe journal was then approved and
tbe repeal bill taken up, for the first
time since Monday.
Manderson gave notice of an amend
ment to tbe rules providing, in case of
no quorum voting, tbe presiding officer
shall count the senators present and not
voting, including those announcing
pairs or who have been excused from

Tha Felling Off Das to the Financial
Washington, Oct. 19.—Senator Mc-
Pbereon, for tbe senate committee on
coinage, today presented a statement
from the secretary of the treasury show
ing tbat tbe estimated receipts of public
revenues submitted to the last congress
for the present fiscal year, $405,000,000,
did not include the postal service, and
the estimated expenditures, also exclud
ing tbe postal service, were $307,000,000,
showing an estimate* excess of receipts
of $32,000,000 for the year. Tbe estimate
shows average monthly receipts of $33,
--760,000, and average expenditures of
$31,000,000. The actual receipts so far
during the year do not reach the esti
mated figures by over $7,000,000 per
month. The secretary attributes the
falling off to tbe financial disturbances.
He says a careful inspection of tbe
figures will show tbat tbe deficiency is
doe to tbe falling off of revenues, and
not an increase of expenditures.
An Indignant Ames-loan Citizen Creates
a Sonne In the Senate.
Washington, Oct. 19. —When the vice
president today warned the galleries
that if they repeated the applause he
would have the galleriee cleared, a
middle-aged man arose in his eeat and
said: "As one of tbe American people
I will go out," and be began to make for
tbe door. Immediately there was a
considerable stir on tb# floor and in tbe
galleries. Officers escorted the man
from tbe building. He offered no re
resistance, but went nnder protest. He
paid he waa satisfied tbe people were
determined the Sherman law should be
repealed, and tbat the protest he made
from the gallery was only tbe beginning
of the demonstration which wonld be
made against the senate if there was not
speedy action on the repeal bill.

Washington, Oct. 19.—The Ind'a.i

predominant evil among the Indians.

law be passed holding tbat when a
patent is given it shall not confer citi
zenship upon an Indian.

TheOorbett-Mitchell Mutch May
Not Come Off.
Mayor Boody of Brooklyn Will Not
Permit It.
Mitchell Says It Moat Come Off
Somewhere* If Not In This
Country Then In Cnba
or Mexico.
By the Associated Press.
Nbw York, Oct. 19.—Mayor Boody ol
Brooklyn today gave it out that he
would not permit the prize fight be
tween Jim Corbett and Charley Mitchell
to take place at Coney Island. District
Attorney Ridgeway is also reported to
have said the tolerance of the fight would
never be considered. The sporting men
of New York do not actually langb out
aloud at these "campaign documents"
but some of them do say it is a bluff on
tbe part of the politicians. Sheriff
Courtney, when asked regarding the
| matter, said: "No, there will be no
fight. What Mayor Boody says is per
fectly true and the fight cannot come off."
The Mail and F.xpress says: Mayor
David A. Boody, in view of public opin
ion, requested the county authorities to
day to put a stop to the MUchell-Corbett
fight. Thie grows out of an interview '
in New York this week with Governor
Flower by Boss McLaughlin. The fight
will therefore be declared off.
Pittsburg, Pa., Oct. 19.—Charley
Mitchell, now in the city, was very
ani»ry when informed by a representa
tive of the Associated Press that Mayor
Boody of Brooklyn had decided that
th« right between Corbett and himselt
<• ulrl not take place at Coney island.
Hi- at once launched out into a bitter
denunciation of the New York minis
ters, who, be claimed, are responsible
for Mayor Boody's action. Mitchell
then declared the fight would have to
come off. The money waß up, and if
they could not fight in this country he
would insist upon eettling tbe matter in
Mexico or Cuba nnder the London
prize ring rules on the tnrf for tbe origi
nal stakes. In conclusion he said if the
fight was prevented by Brooklyn's
mayor he would be in $5000, as the offi
cials of the Coney Island club had put
np $10,000 guarantee that tbe mill
would come off under their auspices,
Asbury Park, N. J., Oct. 19.—Pugil
ist J. J. Corbett tonight received word
that tbe Kings county officials had de
cided to stop the proposed tight between
himself and Mitchell. He said if the
fight did not come off it would be no
fault of bis.

Bis VlUr of the Caase or tha Labor and
Financial Troubles.
"What ia the cause of the labor and
financial troubles?"
"In the first place, the mills and facto
ries, furnaces and foundries of the world
can produce more than the world will
use. They produce, however, as long aa
they can sell at a profit, and when the
supply is too great the mills and facto
ries must close, and then the laborers
are thrown out of employment. Then
the people become economical, and the
economy adds to the general distress.
The truth is that tho extravagance of
the people does not keep pace with the
invention of labor saving machinery.
"The machines of the world are doing
the work of hundreds of millions of
men, and when the machines stop tho
laborers employed in making and feed
| ing and running theso machines stop,
| too, and then hard times come. Those
I who are a little ahead begin to draw
| from the savings banks, and the savings
] banks collect their loans, and the other
banks do tho same, and then comes a
! currency famine, nnd then a few banks
foil and lack of confidence becomes gen
j eral, and then comes panic. After a
I time the surplus is used, mills and fac
| tories light their fires, the men go to
work, people put their money in the
| banks because confidence baa returned,
! and again notes and drafts and prom
! ises take tho place of money, and an
j other era of prosperity commences.
"The farmers work like the manufac-
J turers. They either raise too little or
too much corn or wheat or pork. Once
I in a few years, by accident, they hit the
proper proportion, nnd then prices are
good, and tho farmers aro prosperous. It
is probable that ns the manufacturer
and farmer become better acquainted
with the world—when they know what
I is being made and what is planted in va
rious countries—they can in some degree
lessen or put oil the present evils. But I
do not see how they can bo surely or per
manently avAided. Ido not believe the
purchase of silver by our government
| had much to do with tho trouble."—Rob

The directors of the fair are beginning

pink enameled affair, will stand under a
bug© Japanese parasol showered with
pink rosebuds. In place of a tea gown
she plans to wear a tea jacket over a
ruffled skirt. It is to be made of white
crepe de chine with a loose front. There
aro a frill and a jabot of French lace, and
over it all a rosy glow due to the pink
silk lining beneath.
Another New York woman is to have
a 8 o'clock tearoom this winter which
will rival in its changing color the most
daring attempt of Loie Fuller. Her tea
gown is of ombre silk in varying shades
of blue. Tbe gown is distinctly new in
its design. At the back it is arranged in
a Watteau plait, which is so full that it
has a wavy effect. A deep frill of lace
falls from tho throat, to the shoulders
and then continues in cascades over the
Watteau plait to the hem of the gown.
A jeweled girdle confines the silk at the
waist, and a band of jeweled trimming
finishes the gown around the bottom.
The demilong sleeves aro puffeil and
then arranged in folds, with a deep frill
of lace falling to tho wrist. The trim
ming reflects all the tints of the silk and
is wrought with gilt, silver and turquoise
blue beads.—New York World.

It Can Be Made One of tbe Greatest Pleas-
ures of Dnmostlclty.
Many a pretty little home has been
broken np and tbe domestic Lores and
Penatea scattered to the four winds be
cause, aa tho young folks ruefully put it,
"we ware simply run to death with com
pany." Visitors are costly luxuries, and
iv homes where every expense has to be
calculated down to the finest detail an
extra one or two meals or to spend a few
days beneath the rooftree means an out
lay that sometimes makes severe inroads
into the little store laid np for a rainy
Young housekeepers in the flush of
their first month or so of happiness in
their new home will invite their friends
indiscriminately to come and see them
and argue with themselves in an incon
seqnent and generous fashion that what
is enough for two will amply supply
any additional ones that may drop in for
luncheon or dinner.
This sort of thing is all right once in
awhile. A home would not be a homeit
it were not the place where one could
receive friends and show to those out
side the ken of the domestic circle what
a delightful thing it is to have one's own
little bouse. Yet when visitors come in
droves, bringing trunks that indicate a
lengthy stay, the worried housekeeper
soon discovers that the allowance for the
table does not go half so far, and that
the bills at the grocer's and butcher's
run up with alarming rapidity.
If ope is rich, of course, this added ex
pense is of no consequence, but it is not
to them that we speak, but to those who
wish to be hospitable, but whose purse
limits tbem on this line as well as many
others. Iv order to obviate much of tbe
trouble that comes from an overdose of
company, the hostess shonld, at the be
ginning, tell her friends that when she
is ready for tliem she will invite tbem,
and when this time arrives she should in
her own gracious, womanly way let
them know how long a stay she has
made preparations for. The casual vis
itor, or those who drop in for evening
calls are, of course, not included in this.
It is only those who come for days at a
time, and if they are as friendly as they
profess to be they will understand the
motive in their invitation and will be
kind hearted and considerate enough to
regard it to the letter.
Such a plan as this, if adopted and
followed with a thorough understanding
on both sides, would make home life far
more pleasant and prove that optional
hospitality is one of the greatest pleas
ures of domesticity, instead of being the
cause of a breakup, as too generous
doses of visitors are frequently apt to be

Bank President Annie Moores.
Mrs. Annie Moores, the only woman
president of a national bank, has rather
had her greatness thrnst upon her. The
banking institution known as the First
National bank of Monnt Pleasant, Tex.
of which sho is the presiding officer, was
originally a private banking house, and
obedient to the wish of her father and
brother, who controlled it, she familiar

workings. Later, when it came into her
hands a national bank concern, it was
with somo misgivings that she stepped
into the white light of publicity as its

ordeal has been wholly satisfactory, and
even during the recent financial crisis
the credit of the Mount Pleasant bank
has stood nninipeaclied. As it is situated
in a cotton district, its business is of con
siderable volume, ant) it is high praise
for its head that it lin? safely weathered
the late stormy money times. —Exchange.
Keeping Jams.
A not infrequent cause of preserves
growing moldy is that the jars in which
they are kept are not perfectly dry when
the frnit ii \ *it into them. The jars put
away from last year will necessarily he
dusty and require washing, and it too
often happens that tho jars are washed
the same day the jam is made. One may
imagine thoy afe dried with a cloth, but
probably a slight dampness remains,
which is enough to cause tho best lwiled
preserves to turn moldy, even if kept in
a dry place. Have jars washed in very
hot water the day before they are used,
and after drying with a cloth, put, down
in trayfuls before the kitchen lire to do
away with the possibility of damp, 'x bey
should then be set aside in tho kitchen
until the next day, covered to keep out
the dust.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Eairdressing remains just the same.
Many of tho prominent, fuzzy bunches
are made over a light frame, which is
sold for tho purpose at the hairdressers.
This is provided with holes, through
which tho hair is drawn, and tbe wearer
can arrange the hair on it as fancy or
taste dictates. The frames can be had in
different sizes, and are most convenient
for those who want their hair to have on
up to date look A new idea in hair
dressing is to wave the hair all over the
head, twist a few curls into a knot at
the crown and leave the ends of the curls
to fly and flutter as they will.—Ex

Factory inspectors know that child
labor ia one of the factors on which our
captains of industry count in their cal
culation on cost of production; that the
employment of children increases, not
withstanding statutory regulations in
tended to check Its that avenues for this
employment are multiplied with every
evolvement of genius perfected in an im
proved machine, and as the magical ma
chine and the child are brought together
so in geometrical ratio is increased the
num'.x r of unemployed adults. With
the effects of its labor upon the child we
are sadly-familiar. The census of 1880,
tbe last yet available, gave the number
of wage earning children at 1,118,288—
a child in every 16 robbed of Its birth
right of playtime, of physical growth,
of mental training. It is probable that
at the present time not less than 8,000,
--000 children under 16 years of age are in
workshops and faotories.—A Factory In
