bill as it passed the senate is the same as
was reported by the conference com

which is likely to cause trouble to im

sult of an oversight, but on that account
will not prove any th? less troublecome.
This provision is in relation to the duty
on currants. Section 261 of the schedule
provides that the duty on "apples,
peaches, currants, etc.," shall be 25 cents
a bushel. But section 263 provides that
the duty on a number of fruits, In

Intending to go merely for a trial swim.
A lugger manned by two local sailors
accompanied him. McNally's trainer,
Brown, of Boston, and one London jour
nalist, were also on board 1 the accompa

the rate of one and one-half miles an

great difficulty in reaching Calais, It
arrived there, however, at 5:30 oclock.
