Senatois and Repmeniatives who are interested in public building hills are not plea-ed with the an nouncement of Chairman Cannon, ot the House Appropriation com mittee, that no new expenditures will be authorized by that commit tee as long as the government rev enues are lens than itsexpenditnres. There is considerable grumbling and there wiil be more, but Mr. Cannon's word will, as it is known to be backed by Speaker Reed, and the proposed new public build ings will hava to wait, although ihe friends of some of them may he shrewd enough to cet them provided for in amendments by a majority vote of the House, in de fiance of the committee. A verv interesting rumor, said to have original d from a few wordp dropped by a Senator known to enjoy the confidence of Secreta ry Olr.ey, pays that about a mouth ago Secretary Olnev acting under the direction of Prdsident Cleve land notified Spain that ninetv days more would be allowed the Spaniards to put down the Cuban revolution, and that if at the end of that time no progress has been made towards that end the United States would feel called upon in the interest of humanitv and of commerce to interfere, forcibly if neccesary, to bring about peace. Those who accept the rumor as tme that about the time that this alleged ultimatum was pent that extraordinary naval preparations both in Spain and the United S-ates began. The one thing which the newlv arrived Congressmen phow not the slightest interest is the contents of of the President's forthcoming annual message to Congress. Or dinarily it is just the contrary with them, but this year everybody eeius to think that it will not make the slightest difference what Mr. Cleveland may'say. He is a r resident without a party practic ally, as the (our Senators and the little handUil of Representatives who are stil; known as Cleveland democrats cankhardly be calleda party. The lawyer who is n't as jealouR of the hot. or of his profession as he is of his own good name is un worthy of the profession and un fitted to be trusted with the busi ness interests of others. It is this jealously of the honor cf their pro fession that is causing the better class of patent lowyers to agitate in favor of the organization of a pat ent Bar, with rules stringent e nough to stop some of the practices which are degrading the profes sion, especially the get-rich-while- you wait promises which are scaN tered broadcast by certain firms as bait tr.get advance fees from inven tors and men who have ideas they imagine to be inventions, and the lottery competitions which are de moralizing those who are induced to pay for the privilege of entering them. These tricks of unscrupul ous patent solicitors, although of doubtful legality and some danger ously near to obtaining money under false pretenses, cannot be reached by the authority of the Commissioner of Patents, but they could be by rules made by an as sociation of patent lawyers. Senator Peffer says the populists will do nothing to prevent the car rying out of the proposal for anoth er international monetary comrais sion except to state their belief in the utter uselessnessof such a com mission. He added that there nev er had been any international mon ey and that he didn't believe there ever would be any. Strange to say the extreme gold standard men take about the same view of the matter that Senator Petfrr does. Representative Apsley, of Mass , who ought to be authority un the I subject, says the reason the wool I manufacturers Hre striving so hard to get the Dingley bill put through A I Crime Krpayyo SUSPICIOUS looking characters wearing attracted the attention of one of them and he picked it up and studied it a moment by the light of his lantern. Then with an exclamation of surprise, he passed it to his companion who examined it eagerly for a time and then threw it down, "That settles it, Bill," said he. "We won't crack this crib.

Sequachee, Tenn., Oct. 29, '90. the Senate at this session is, ''Be cause the passage of the Dingley bill would have the immediate ef fect of raising the duty on the wool en manufactures some 15 percent1, while the duty on the raw material would be only at about 6 cents per pound. Consequently the mantii facturers would have the best o. the legislation, being able to get the raw material at comparatively little advance in cost, while being protected as to the manufactured article." Mr. Apsley strongly fav ors an i xtra tariff session and a mong other reasons for his belief said. UI am not in favor of enact ing any measure which is not fair to all interests. If we should at lempt to do anything this session, we wuild be sure to make serious blunders and have the work to go over again next session.
