Washiiiton Letter
From Our Special Onrrpspordent.
Washington, D. C , Dec 4, 1890.
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.

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. I am in

satisfactory to the country."

Stated in a nutshell the opinion
of a majoritv of the Senators and
Representatives now in Washing
ton may be rendered thusly: The
short session of Congress will be
devoted to passing the regular ap
propriation bills, the unloading of
a few personal grievances and the
payment of a few political debts by
means of speeches, and some
wrangling. There will be an ex
tra session of Congress early in the
spring to pass a tarifl bill.
Jasper Notes.
Robt. Kennedy has now charge
of one of the meat markets.
101 hogs were slaughtered in
Jasper last week. This with the

would intimate that the people of
this place are a trifle carnivorous.
The Pryor Institute and the Pub

and doing good work.
