Decreased Revenue Under the Wilson Bill. An Income Tax Necessary to Make Up the Deficit. Senator Dolph Will Take Up tha Cudgels for Protection - Publlo Debt Statement— Epidemic of La Grippe. By the Associated Press. Washington, Dec. 1, —The meeting of the ways and meanß committee today was brief. Tbe estimates to be sub mitted, showing tbe probable difference in revenue tbat would result from tbe new bill, were not complete, and the committee adjourned till Monday to give Clerk Talbott and bit assistants farther time. Tbe labor of estimating tbe revenue to be derived under tbe new tariff bill has progressed far enough to warrant the statement, that on tbe basic of tbe imports oi 1892, tbe loaa in revenne re sulting from the enactment of the new bill would be abont $60,000,000 per an num. It is tbe conclusion of Chairman Wilson and bis Democratic associates tbat importations wilt be to stimulated under the new bill that the loss of rev enue will not be over (35,000,000. Mr. Tareney of tbe nays and means committee still clings to tbe belief that tbe deficit can not be supplied without extending the income tax to indi viduals. "I don't think it can be done," said he, "without making tbe tax on the net earnings of corporations excessive. Such a tax of 2 per cent would secure* to tbe government not more than $25,000,000, whereas tbe de ficiency would be nearly $40,000,000. I can not see how tobacco can stand any greater tax. If the rate on whisky is advanced 10 cents per gallon, from that source there will be about $0,000,000, which is still short of tne amount required. I hardly think we could get along without help from a personal in come tax. If incomes over $6000 were taxed at the rate of 5 per cent it would put into the treasury over $7,000,000." The Democratic members of tbe com mittee on ways and means will meet tomorrow afternoon to farther consider tbe income tax and internal revenue schedule. Tbe expressions of members of tbe committee give no reason for be lieving that the increase of tbe whisky tax will exceed lOcenrf, and some think it is doubtful whether there will be any increase. Tbe sub-committee is debat ing tbe advisability of making any in crease in tbe whisky tax applicable to all whisky on hand at the time tbe new tariff law goes into effect. Senator Dolph of Oregon announces that when tbe new revenue bill comes up for consideration in the senate he will present an historical address for the purpose of proving thet tbe United States never bad any prosperity except when there was a protective tariff, and that from tbe colonial days free trade has meant debased labor. Representative Holman favore an in come tax ac a just and equitable mode of raising revenue. The national debt should be gradually extinguished and tbe rate of government expenditures greatly reduced. THE PUBLIC DEBT. An Iucreaee Dnniig November of Nearly 87,000,000.

Washington, Doc. 1. —Physicians in Washington report the grip quite prev alent. The usual symptoms of debility and nervous affection are manifest, but tbe ailment seems to fix on the throat with particular virulency. It deprives many patients of their voices, and in many cases causes a spasmodic contrac tion of tbe throat, with symptoms of strangulation very alarming. The great prevalence of throat troubles leads to the supposition that this is a peculiar form of grip, running in a Bort of epi demic. JKverythlna; Quiet.

Chicago, Dec. L—The Coughlin case urnisbed a freah sensation this raorn ng when the attorney for Coughlin pre sented affidavits showing that Juror Fred C. Rehn swore falsely in hia exam ination for admission to the jury when he said be had been in Toledo during the time of tbe Cronin murder. Tbe affidavits showed that he was in Chicago and attended Cronin's funeral. The at torney asked tbat he be discharged. Tbia, immediately following the dis missal of two jurora at the request of tbe proeecution, for having secured place; on the jury in Coughlin's inter est, leaves the caae iv a chaotic condi tion. Judge Tuthill took the request under advisement. Tbe proeecution claims it is an attempt of the defense to oliaet the effect of tbe dismissal of two jurors on application of tbe pp secati D.

WORK OF THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR. 5 Better Laws Needed for the Preserva tion of Forests and the Settlement of the I'ubllc Domain—Prog ress of the Red man. Washington, Dec. 1.—Tho secretary of the interior, in his annual report, reviews the work of all branches of the department during the year. He com ments on the utter inadequacy of the legialation thua far enacted to provide for tbe legitimate procurement of public timber to supply tbe actual neceeeitiea of people dependent upon it. To pro mote the settlement and' develop the natural resources of tbe public lands, legialation providing for a wise and com prehensive forestry system, is recom mended. Tbe secretary discusses at length tbe opening of tbe Cherokee strip. He recommends as a substitute for the present system of settlement the adop tion by congress of some plan which, by auction, lottery or otberwiae, may deter mine in advance the ownership of each particular aection. The work of the Indian bureau ebowa a steady advance in civilization. It ia a mistake to suppose that their num ber is rapidly decreasing. On the contrary tribal ware and wars with whites having ceased, tbey are increas ing and now number over 250,000. Tbe recent troubles in the Choctaw nation are touched upon at length. The secre tary urges the prompt passage of tbe bill now pending before congreas ex tending the jurisdiction of the United States in Indian territory so as to in clude the right of removal of all cases where local prejudice is shown, without regard to citizenship. The secretary states hn now feels all confidence tbat every ei.wrt is being con scientiously made to bring the federal census to a close and render it as useful as possible when finished. The secretary states in tbe estimate of expenditures for the department, a great majority of the proposed improvements were rejected, only those actually neces sary for the conduct of public buiness being adopted.

Ochoa, arreßted yes terday, charged witb inciting revolution in the republic of Mexico, waß a com plete fiasco. There waa no proof that Ochoa hae bad any connection witb the trouble in Mexico.

It ia eaid tbey lett tbe railroad at Medeonas and a few miles south of Casaa Grandea were attacked. The officers were all killed and tbe soldiers taken into the rebel camp. Denver, Dec.

The Center Party's Power in the Reichstag. They Prove Their Ability to Baffle the Govemmeiit. Two French Deputies Fight a Dnel—Tbe New French Cabinet—A Bank Panic ln Italy—Other Foreign Note.. B" the Assoc'ated Press. Berlin, Dec. 1. —The Centrists in the reichstag today introduced a motion to readmit members of tha Society of Jeaua ia Germany. Count, Hopmesch Ruenieh, en behalf of the Centre party made a short speech in justification of the mo tion. Mantenfell declared tbe Con servatives, witb few exceptions, would oppose the motion. Morbacb (Imperi aliet) and Marquardaen (National Li beral) stated tbeir parties would alao oppose tbe motion. HollentTer (German Conservative. eaid he and some of his friends would abstain from voting. Lotze (Anti-Semite) eaid bis party would vote as tbey choae. Scroeder announced tbat the Freieinnige party would vote againat tbe proposition. Tbe Reicbatag by a vote of 173 to 136 adopted tbe Centrists' motion to re admit Jesuits into Germany. When tbe cheering over the result had subsided Liebor spoke, saying the Cath olics adhered to tbe course tbey bad hitherto followed and would remain faithful to the emperor and the empire and loyally devoted to the fatherland. [Loud cheera.] Dr. Lieber. after declaring the Catho lic church required tbe services of the Jesuits in order to enable it to discbarge its divine mission, repelled the charges against the curia to the effect tbat it was pursuing a policy inimical to Ger man national interests. Cardinal Ram polla, papal secretary of state, con tinued Dr. Lieber, only re cently declared that tbe holy Bee avoided all interference in political or ganizations, both of the dreibnnd and tbe powers opposed. Bat, Dr. Lieber asserted, if it should ever occur tbat the holy see displayed an intention to pur sue a policy friendly to tbe RuaßO-French alliance tbe German Catholica Bhoald not allow their interpretation of tbe j dogma of papal infallibility to be i stretched so aa to dtater tbem from ful filling their political duties to tbe Ger man people and to tbe German empire. No members of tbe government party took a share in the debate. The vote will bavq no practical result. It bad been fully understood from tbe firat tbat tbe government would not accept the bill, and the Centrists in bringing tbe motion to a vote only wished to prove tbeir ability to command enough membora to embarraaa the government and carry other points.

A CHICAGO SENSATION. DOUBLE SUICIDE AT A FASHION ABLE HOTEL. An TJnfalthfnl Sponae ask Her Para mour Bnd Their Troubles and Their Lives In a Dramatic Manner. Chicago, Dec. I.—ln the Virginia hotel, located in the heart of the fash ionable residence district of tbe north side, a dramatic double suicide occurred this morning. Behind a door, bolted and double locked, were found the bodies of Victor Oyrier, a drug clerk, and Mrs. Caron, wife of a druggist for whom Cvrier had formerly worked. The woman died by poison, while Cyrier, after tak ing poison, shot himself three times and lay stretched across the ioot oi the bed on which tbe woman lay. The couple registered under a false name as man and wife at tbe hotel last Tuesday, and were apparently very happy. When the door was forced this morning both were found dead, and bad evidently been dead for several hours. Letters were found on tbe center table, written by both parties, to relations bidding n laat farewell to dear friends and announcing tbeir purpose to die together. Mrß. Caron wrote, bidding farewell to her husband and little child: "So young, what will ahe do without mother?" Cyrier wrote: "She died 5:30 this morning; I can't write; can't open my eyeß." It waa evident from tbe letters that both had taken poiaon at the same time, with the agreement that the one sur viving the longest should die by tbe pistol. Cyrier had boarded with the Carotin while working in tbe drug Btore. The intimacy between tbe clerk and tbe wife of the proprietor was noticed laat summer, but not by Caron until three weeks ago, when he found them in a compromising situation, and Mrs. Caron and Cyrier disappeared at once. Neither was well supplied with money, and when their funds became exhausted by tbe high rates at a fashionable hotel, tbey agreed to suicide as a solution of all tbeir troubles.
