caBe Mr Springer chairman of tho
commltleo on banking and currenci
decides befoie tho end of the week to
bring forward his new measure Ho
has been In constant consultation with
Secretary Carlisle for tho past week
and Is ery sanguine that concessions
can be made to the silver men which
mill Induce them to withdraw their op
position On ytsteiday hu expressed
the opinion that he would bring forward
the modilled foil thU week arid that It
would pass This opinion however
Is not generally shared by Democratic
members of the house most of w horn do
not hesitate to suy they believe all
hope of currency legislation at this
session Is done
It Is also possible that the resolution
for the Impeachment of Judge Hicks
may be before the house before the
end of the week but the fact that the
committee on Judiciary decided Friday
to reopen the cose is interpreted to
mean a delay which will render anj
attempt to push the case against him
at this cession abortive
jNext Saturday by a special order
will be set aside for eulogies on the
late Senator Alfred H Colquitt of
Georgia It Is not Improbable that Mr
Boutelle will attempt to secure con
sideration of his Hawaiian resolution
and thus a debate on this subject be
precipitated In some form

Washington Jan 10 The prospect
In the senate this week Is for more talk
than accomplishment When the sen
ate adjourned jesterday the senates
attitude toward Hawaii the proposed
recess from the senates amendments
tu the JncQme tax appropriation nnd
tho Nicaragua bill all occupied In tho
dl tie lent ways technically considered
tho position of unfinished builncss
The income tax resolution will have
the rightofway by virtue of Its being
a part of the appropriation bill Tho
Hawaiian question will in all probabil
ity be considered in the morning hour
iMonday morning If not crow dud out
iby the debate on the Income tax
There are known to be several senators
moat If not all of them on the Repub
lican side anxious to express their
views on the Hawaiian problem and
Judging from their prlvatu expressions
the remarks to be made will In somo In
stances be very pointed Senator Hill
Is also expected to stand out for his
Income tax amendment The Nicar
aguaji question still holds its place at
the head of the calendar for considera
tion dally after 2 oclock
Senator Morgan said todiy1 that he
was still hopeful of securing a vote on
this bill before the closo of the week
but if there should bo any Interruptions
lie may again he dlsappolntid
Senator Turple lias the fioor for a
reply to Senator Morgan and is ex
pected to mako one of his character
istlc speeches There will also bo other
addresses on this subject before the
vote is finally taken
Senator Cockrell expects to ask to
have the fortifications appropriation
bill taken up as soon as tho urgent de
ficiency bill Is out of the wa > and
thinjti there will be na difficulty In
getting It through during the week
The friends of the bankruptcy and
territorial admission bills arc growing
anxious concerning the fate of these
measures and are beginning to be ap
prehensive that time may not be left
for their consideration If the Nicaragua
bill be not disposed of soon
The present prospect Is against a re
vival of the financial and currency
question in the senate during the week
but much will depend upon the action
of the committee on finance at Its meet
ing Tuesday and also on the attitude
of the house of representatives

that a poor man has not alwaja a place

both along the lino and at the stables

Mthough a number ot cars are run
