Proceedings of Congress of
Unusual Interest.
Lewis, of Georgia, Introduces Dill to Re
peal the Stamp Tax Pettigrew
and Hoar Heard From.
A Washington special ays: Tho
house of representatives and the
United States enate reconvened Wod-
neRday after the holiday recess.
The attendance in both branches of
congress was good, and much interest
centered in the cessions.
Tho significant feature of the session
of the house was the inauguration of a
fiht on Secretary of the Treasury
Gage for the alleged favoritism shown
the National City bank, of New lork,
in that the secretary has caused the
levenue funds to be deposited with
that bank almost exclusively.
Iu the senate Mr. rettiirrew re
newed his attack jn the administration
in connection with the Philippine pol
icy, and he introduced a resolution of
inquiry looking to throwing light on
the question of how the hostilities be
gan. Objection was made to the resolu
tion, which called forth from Senator
Hoar a sharp complaint that senators
were trying to throttle others senators
in their desire for information on pub
lic matters.
He called attention to the fact that
four senators had risen up on the pre
sentation of Mr. Pettigrew s resolution
to object to consideration. This was
done in the face of the fact that it was
the uniform custom of tho senate to
allow resolutions of inquiry to go
through without obstruction. He
wanted to know if this policy was to
be continued.
Tho statement brought Aldrich,
Chandler and Hawley to their feet.
Mr. Aldrioh disclaimed any intenten
of suppressing information concern
ing military matters and withdrew the
notice to take up the financial bill
"after the consideration of routine
morning business," fixing the time
definitely at 2 o'clock.
Messrs. Hawley and Chandler both
explained that the suggestions con
cerning the Pettigrew resolution had
only covered the point of postpone
ment until Thursday, which they as
serted was not out of the ordinary.
With a few further words on the
part of Mr. noar, the incident closed.
Mr. Lewis, of the third Georgia dis
trict, introduced a bill in the house to
repeal the stamp tax. He believes
that as the reports of the secretary of
the treasury show more money than is
needed for the administration of tht
affairs of the government, making the
most liberal allowances for the army
aud navy, congress should repeal th j
stamp tax provision of the revemuj
As it Is the one hundred million
raised by the tax seems to be usd by
the administration for the relief of na
tional banks in the cities and the re
sult is that the people are being taxed
for the benefit of the banks. Mr.
Lewis wants to put a stop to this pro
ceeding. "There is really no necessity for
this tax in view of the treasury fig
ures," said he, "and I believe the peo
ple should be relieved of this addi
tional tax burden."
The bill in its first section provides
that so much of the revenue law as ap
peared June, 1898, as relates to a
stamp tax be repealed. The second
section' of the bill provides that the
stamp tax laws that were in force im
mediately previous to the approval of
this law of 1898 be again effective.
The third section directs the secretary
of the treasury to redeem out of any
money in tho freasury not otherwise
appropriated all stamps that have been
sold and not canceled without any dis
count. The bill further provides that this
act shall take effect on the 30th of
Jane of this year.
For Allen Fuller, the Condemned
Murderer of Mrs. Pottle.
A Macon dispatch says: A new trial
was refused Allen Fuller for the mur
der of Mrs. Pottle in the Bibb superior
court Wednesday morning. . A bill of
exceptions has been filed aud a super
sedeas granted suspending sentence
of court.
The case will be taken before the
supreme court at once, and it is ex
pected that the case will be set for
hearing about January 15. This means
that Fuller will have at least two
months longer to live, even in the
event that the decision of the supreme
court is adverse.

cluding tvrrythlug from the common
barndoor skatu to tho electric ray and
the Immense butterfly ray. There are
no fewer tbnn lx varieties of the ter
rible sting ray, locally known ns sting
arccs and feared as being fatally ven
omous. Strange rays are the eatfe
rays, and stranger still are the mon
strous devil flh, more properly known
ns sea devils, thus being distinguished
froai the octopus nnd the squid, which
nre called devil fish nil over the world.
There are three varieties of gar lish,
the long-nosed gar pike, the thort
nosed gar and the alligator gar, which
Is feared by fishermen a much or
more than a shark. Flevcn species of
cattish are listed, ranging from the
blue cat of 100 pounds and more to
the tiny fellows of one-quarter of a
pound. Twenty-three kinds of eels nre
to be found In the Inland and oceanic
waters of Florida. Thero are three va
rieties of fierce and scrpent-llke
morays. Thero are two varieties of
tarpon and twenty-five varieties of the
rest of the herring family.
Among the more curious fishes that
nre not known generally are the lkzard
fish, the viper fish, the snake eels, the
needle and the hound llsh, the trump
et and the cornet fish, pipe fish, nnd sea
horses, there being four varieties of
the latter; the savage barracudas, the
cutlass fishes, sawfish, amber jacks,
moon fish, the triple tails, the rudder
fish, croakers, parrot fish, lady fish, an
gel fish, trigger, file and trunk fish,
puffers or blow fish, of which there
are twelve varieties; the shark suck
ers and other reinora fishes which have
a flat disc like tho sole of a rubber shoe
on top of their heads, with which they
attack themselves by suction to o
shark or anything else; the star gaz
ers, which have eyes that are turned
upward at so sharp an angle that they
have a ludicrously sanctimonious as
pect, the hideous bat fishes, which look
as If they had escaped from the Infer
no; and for beauty, the lovely little
br.de fish, also known as the four-eye
fisu, because It has a deep velvety black
spot just behind the tail which looks
like a glowing eye.
A Ntw Kind of Water Mark.
Two Englishmen who have recently
secured a method of procuring water
marks by means of electrolysis thus
describe the process:
"In producing a disappearing and
repeatedly revivable translucent water
mark In or on manufactured paper, we
proceed as follows: Upon a platinum
:;heet or plate forming the positive
conducting surface we place a layer of
absorbent material, such as blotting
paper, previously moistened with wa
ter. On this material we place the pa
per having been previously moistened
through with water. We then press,
face downward, on the paper a pla
num design of the water mark, and
this design forms the negative elec
trode. We keep this negative electrode
in contact with the paper for from
five to ten seconds, according to the
nature of the paper and the amount
of electric current used. The result
on removal of the electrode is a dis
tinct and translucent Image of the de
sign, which gradually fades as the pa
per dries, nnd finally becomes Invisi
ble. The mark, however, can be re
vived and made visible as often as the
paper Is immersed in water or moist
ened in any other way." Paper Mill.
