Washington, Feb. 4. —The signing of the Inter-State Commerce bill by the President to-day was in full accord with the opinion of Attorney-General Garland, which was rendered to him on last Monday and it is very well understood to be in ac cord with the views of the Cabinet. The Attorney-General was asked to-night to give his views in regard to the bill and ex plain wherein it differed from the Senate bill of two years ago ’which he opposed on the ground that it was unconstitutional. He declined to do so, saying that he regarded the opinion which he had given to the Pres ident on the subject as strictly confiden tial. It is learned, however, from trustworthy sources that the Attorney-General,aa well as the President, considers the bill which has just become a law as free from all the material features which were objectionable in the Senate bill of two years ago. Accord ing to this information, the Attorney-Gen eral's objection to the old bill was to the vast powers of a legislative and judicial character that were given to the Commis sion. The Attorney-General is said to hold that the present bill does not confer ludi cial |Movers on the Commission, but puts them In the courts on a report from the Commission, and that it does not confer legislative power except in the fourth sec tion (the long and short haul clause) and that this is warranted by numberless prece dents in the legislative history of the Gov ernment. Chicago Printers. Chicago, Ills., Feb. 4. —There are premonitions of difficulty between the pub lishers of the Chicago daily papers and the Typographical Union. The Union lias ad vanced the price of composition from tfT cents per 1,000 on afternoon papers to 40 cents, and on the morning papers from 40 cents per 1.000 to 45 cents, and have given the publishers the necessary thirty days’ notice. The publishers decline to accede the ad vance. the demand that the question shall l*e submitted to arbitration. The printers on the other hand say they have been beaten twice by arbitration, and they will not submit their claims to any such tri bunal again. It is difficult to tell what the result will be and as ail the publishers stand together, the content will be watched with conside r able interest, as it involves the situation of 400 or 500 men. The Union men claim that there are very few non-Union men in Chi cago, and that the publishers will have to come to terms or stop publication. No Danger of Wnr. Paris. Feb. 4.—M. Lacroix intimated in the lobby of the Chamber of Deputies to-day that he intended to put a question to Premier Goblet, in order to give him tie chance to make a public statement regard ing the political situation. M. Goblet, on receiving notice from M. Lacroix, replied that he considered a dis cussion on that subject unnecessary after the repeated declarations by himself and M. IV Freycinct that the sentiments and policy of France were pacific, and that if fresh declarations were unnecessary from a political point of view, they were equally so in the financial world.
