History of This Country

Special Washington Correspondence
The most momomous work that bos con
fronted Congress him e the war of the re
bellion is now awaiting the special session
President Cleveland has fully appreciated
the work to ho done ami lias therofore
called Congress together in extra session
fonr months before the time of its usual
ablins in Liecenter
The importance of ILe session is due to
the fact that for the first time in thirty
years the Democratic party will htTe con
trol of every branch of the national rovern
rnent including the Presidency the United
States Senate and the House of Represent
stives For this reason there will be no
Senate toembarrass or confuse the work of
the House or of the President The policy
to be adopted can readily pass through tho
two ifgislative bodle without fear of a
Presidential veto if the leaders of the
party can only be reconciled in adopting
some uniform and comprehensive policy as
to the various great questions to be con
sidered
At the oatset however there are pros
pects of a wide diversity of opinion be
tween the Executive and the leaders of the
Benate and the Boose To what extent
this will affect the solution of the great
questions of tariff finance bankinc for
eign tufatrs etc remalnrtab i en There
Is an ominous raabUng however which
indicates that it will require herculean
efforts to bring complete harmony between
the House Senate and President and thus
secure the enactment of the many impor
tant policies of the party now in control of
the branches of the Federal government
There is every evidencathat one of two
conditions will control the coming Con
gress Either Mr Cleveland will be abso
lute master of the situation and his policy
win be carried into effect by the two
branches of Congress or eue if the
IcUwilled leaders of Congress de
pine to execute Mr Clevelands
will there will be a deadlock be
tween the Executive and the legislative
branches vthioh will result in a complete
standstill and a failure to take any effect
ive action on the tariff finance or any
thing else Mr Cleveiand is certain to have
the support both in the Senate and the
House of a very largo number of Demo
cratic Senators and Representatives bat
there is a small body of irreconciiable3 who
are personally hostile to him and who are
not counted upon to gUo him any assist
ance in a crusade against the McKinley act
or in changing the present silver laws It
is the same element which led by Samuel
J ItandU eight years ago when Mr Cleve
land was first President defeated tho old
Mills Liil end gave Mr Cleveland no end of
trouble Now the leaders of this opposi
tion have changed but it is as Intense in
its hostility as ever Whether the great
power of the administration the influence
of patronage and the dictates of King
Caucus can bring this unruly faction into
line is a serious problem Mr Cleveland
and his advisers are hopeful however of
securing a working majority among their
friends In both branches of Congress and
in that event the laws which will be passed
will be of more consequence to the people
of the United States than any legislation
since the war
Tho session is so near at hand that it is
easy to look forward and take a general
view of the great measaros to be brought
before Congress Foremost of these is the
tariff or more properly the repeal of the
SlaKintey act in whole or in part Next
comos the financial question which Mr
Cleveland regards as even more pressing
than the tariff question He has stated
officially that the financial question will
receive first attention at the hands of Con
gress as he f eels that the present panicky
condition of business throughout the
country the failure of banks the excite
ment among depositors and the stagna
tion in many branches of trade is due
largely to the uncertain and unsatisfactory
condition of the national finances After
these two main questions of tariff and
finance come a score or more of lesser
questions of ranch importance They in
clude the question of restoring to State
hanks the right to issue money the repeal
of all laws which give Federal control to
elections the renewal of the fight for anti
option a crusade against aliens and the
alien ownership of land the annexation of
Hawaii and a possible protectorate over
the Nicaragua Canal the purging of the
penaion rolls of such names as are unworthy
of government help the admission of Ter
ritories to new States and numerous
minor measures
The first work of Congress on its assem
bling in An iit w ill 1 c to select its offi
cers VicePresident Stevenson will pre
side ever the Senate by virtue of his elec
tion last November Speaker Crisps term
is at an end but it is well understood that
there will be no speakership fight usual on
the reasf embimg of Congress but that Mr
Crisp will again be honored with the oGce
of Speaker The next work will be the ap
pointment of committees Usually this
takes a month and is interrupted by the
Christmas holidays but as Mr Cleveland
has had the foresight to assemble Congress
in Au nat there will be no holiday inter
ruption and the committees will be in
working order by the middle or latter part
The tariff questionwas ncxer so difficult
of solution as it is at present Mr Cleve
land and his party are conscientiously de
sirous of wipicg oat the McKinley act
Yet they recognize that the government is
hard prewted for funds and teat the repeal
of the McKinley tariff act means the sud
den disappearance of thotse vast stuns
gathered from customs and internal rev
enue which carry on the government
When there was a surplus in the Treasury
as there wa during the previous Cleveland
administration it was easy enough to re
duce the tariff Hut now with the surplus
exhausted and with the United States
Treasury actually m need of more revenue
to carry on the government it Is extremely
difficult to reduce the McKinley act in any
part and apparently out of the question to
wipe the McKinley act out of ex
istence TJie President and Secretary
Carlisle are giving most anxious attention
to some bcheme which will carry out the
promises of the party to annihilate the Mc
Kinley act and nill jet leave the govern
ment enough money to carry on business
Many plans are l mg suggested One plan
is toscal down al dutie fixed by the Mc
Kinley act and yet to raite more revenue
by restoring part of the duty upon sugar
Anotherplan is to scale down the duties
and to offset this reduction by increasing
thererenue tax on whisky It is still too
early to gtre any outline of what the tariff
legislation will eventually be But it is
TwoyouBg men have set out from e y to foresee that the IfcKinley act can
dnced below the livinj

Inffj glory

they want they have taken the wronff
tack Several people have already
c point There will
the majority of the
Senate and the House as it is well known
that the old Randall spirit is still there and
that many prominent Democrats have such
a leaning toward protection that they will
resist all efforts to change the McKinley
actThe
The finanf ial ctxnpgle promises to be nn
exciting oue Pre ident Cleveland has set
bis heart on the repeal of tho present Sher
man silver act l y which the government
buys 4VKI000 ounces of sliver each month
and coins it into silver dollars These
silver doller4 cannot be circulated and
they remain in the treasury vaults a dead
weight on the government and no use to
the people Thus the government is com
pelled to spend an enormous turn each
month for stiver and yet the people of the
oountrv receive no added circulation Mr
Cleveland charges up the pretent bad con
dition of i he banks and of business to the
existing Sherman act He feels that if tho
act Is repealed there will be no further
hazard to bushies It ia by no means cer
tain however that Mr Cleveland will be
able to secure a majority In both the
House and the Benate for the repeal of
this Sherman act The free silver men are
very numerous in bjih branches and they
even claim a majority They are ot
course opposed t > any stoppage in the
purchaie of iver Tbsy want the
government to purchase not only
4600000 oun es per month but all the sil
ver mined in tlm country The clash be
tween the silver and the anti silver m n
will te very bittar Mr Cleveland will Le
arrayed with the latter and it will be an
Interesting spectacle to see whether the
fidminiMration will be able to enforce its
policy on thfs fitnl question and secure the
repeal of the Sherman act with Its conse
oent ret < r fon of eaM and teturltj
irougboat tvfctnet circles
Another err important question to comi
before Congress Is that as to restoring Statl

to turning back tramp steamers

a monopoly or Issuing paper money
in the form of national bank notes and the
Stats banks were restrained from issuing
paper money by a 10 per cent tax on thel
circulation
This tax was practically rro
Libltory for no State bank would pay 1C
cents for the privilege of issuing 100
The State bonk men are now anxious to go
back to the old system They point out
that the national banks have fulfilled theli
mission of buying bonds to carry on the
war and are no longer necessary On thi
other hand the opponents of State bank
raise the cry of wildcat current y and
say that if the old svitem were ret to red
there would be no uniformity in the paper
money of the country The State baufc
men have a very powerful following and
In the last Congress they showed 4 vote
In a Email house They have tho ad
vantage of an absolute endorsement ol
State banks In tho national Demorratfc
platform which gave a positive promist
that State bants should be restored
There will be no Force Billcry in tha

The bill attracted more attention In the
last Congress than any other measure It

Secretary of Agriculture Mr Morton has
assumed office and has expreited the
strongest opposition to the bill This may
prove a fatal discouragement to antiop

The crusade against adens and the alien
ownership of lands is likely to be taken up
with vigor There Is much disiatifaction j

by foreigners or foreign syndicates Tab
has raised a cry of alien landlordi < m aud
several Democratic leaders are anxious tc
put a stop to all alien ownership of large
tracts Bills for this purpose have been
pending for several years but they have
been put off for one reason or another
Those who have them in charge however
intend to push the measures before the next
Congress
Several foreign questions of extreme
moment will come before the new Con
gress The annexation of Hawaii is prob

thins more than a military protectorate
over Hawaii Whatever is done however
will have to be done at once as Hawaii U
in such a state of uncertainty as to its
future that Congress will have to quickly
settle the question of admitting it to tbi
Union Then will come the question as to
whether It bhould be a State or Territory
In either case Congress will be called upon
to appropriate funds for equipping the new
possessions with forts military stations
defenses as well as with custom houses
courts and all the other federal machinery
usual to a part of our country
i Another foreign affair of much conse
quence is the acquisition or protection ol
the Nicaragua Canal This canal is tb
ihort cat by water from the Atlantic to thi
1acific oceans and is of vast importance to
i our bhlppmg interests and to commerce
It is now run by private capitalists who
have not had the vast means necessary to
complete it Moreover during the recent
j revolution in Nicaragua the work already
done was threatened with destruction
rre ident Cle eland looks upon this canal
a of such importance to the American

FOR OCEAN TRAVEL
What Kind and How Many Dresses Are
Needed Tor Trip to Karope b
We have received a letter from
Country Girl says tho Philadel
phia Times asking what to wear on
a steamer in going across the ocean
and also to give any other details
that may be of service to her
To begin with sho hhould have at
least two traveling dresses one
somewhat heavier than the other
One of these she will wear on going
on board the steamer and after the
first meal it is advisable to hang up
that ono and don another which she
will only wear during the actual
voyage as clothing becomes very
wrinkled and unpleasantly sugj > s
tlve of tar which effectively spoils
it for wear on laud
As a trip on the water oven in
summer is generally cool an ulster
Is an actual necessity and in such a
wrap a3 this it will not matter if her
gown undernoath it is not qulto ns
modish as the ono which she will
wear when going off the steamer
es these dresses which per
largo sums of money to indemnify thosei tain more erpecially to the voyage
British vessels
which have been seized In
Bearing sea and their cargoes of sealskins
confiscated
The revision of the pension laws is sure
to bring about a hot contest The South
ern element which largely predominates
In the majorities of House and Senate
favors such in the
changes penIon laws at
will reduce the vast amount now spent for
pensions There will probably be changes
restricting those who can apply for pen
sions ana also somo general system by
which fraudulent pensioners can be struck
from the rolls and future frauds pre
vented
The immigration question win also re
ceive attention Senator Chandler made
a vain effort in the last Congrow to put a
complete itop to immigration for a definite
period There are many who still believe
in tnia plan and who will Insist upon It to
Congress but it is not likely that any com
lete barrier to immigration win be passed
he present Immigration laws are fairly
good in keeping out paupers anarchists
and other undesirable immigrants bat the
law will probably be perfected in numer
ous detaiLs
