The Currency Committee
Seeks to Get It Through
by Next Friday.
Considerable Opposition to
Hurrying- the Measure
Through So Quickly.
It Is the Chief Business of the
Senate--The Christmas
Washington, Dec. 16.— This week.
the last before the holiday recess, prom
ises to be an exciting one in tlie house.
I'he banking and currency committee
has arranged lo bring forward the Car
lisle banking bill, and will tomorrow
prefer a request to the committee on
rules lor :i special order which will set
aside the remainder of the week, be
ginuirg on Tuesday, for debate on the
Carlisle bill, with provision for a final
vote on Friday next. The banking
committee desires to prolong the ses
as to begin at 11 a. m. and con
tinue until 10:30 at night, with a recess
from 3 until Sp. m. The terms, the
special order, 'will be submitted to the
committee on rules tomorrow. There
is considerable opposition among
the Democrats of the house to
tiif short limit it is proposed
to set up on the debate. Maisj
ot them feel that a measure involving
such gigantic interests, contemplating,
as it does, a revolution in the entire
baiikiiii system of the country, should
not be crowded through in baste, Ihis
gis shared by some of the mo>t
prominent Democratic ieaders of the
'jous«\ and it seems a large possibility
that the banking and currency commit
lee will be overruled,and the special
Snal order will give tins week to de
bate, with provision for a Snal vote
after the holiday recess. Tomorrow
the house will take up and dispose of
the army appropriation bill. The ad
journ nient for the holiday recess will
probably oc-ur on Saturday*. The talk
of continuing the session without the
customary recess seems to be based on
very siitrht foundation.
It Will Be tlie Topic uppermost in
tho Senate.
Wa-!iini. kin. Dec. Id.—The Nicara
gua canal bill holds its place as the un
finished business in the senate calendar,
and the general understanding appears
to be that it will occupy the attention of
the senate with few interruptions, and
those by consent, until a vote is taken
upon St. The bili only comes up on
eaeb day after the disposal of the n.orn
ing business, and it will surrender this
place temporarily Thursday to permit
the ceremonies in commemoration of
Webster and Stark.and of the unveiling
of their statues, which have been placed
in the Capitol. There is also a probability
that the committee on appropriations
may ask consideration for the urgency
deficiency bill towards the last of the
week. It is understood that Senator
Coekrill. chairman of this committee,
will lay stress upon the importance of
getting this bill through before the hol
idays, and that he will ask the commit
tee to pass upon it Monday or Tuesday.
There is little probability. however,that
any of the other appropriation bills will
receive the attention of the senate dur
ing the week. The disposition among
senators is favorable loan adjournment
on Thursday until after the Christmas
holidays, but it is probable that the
house will not consent to this arrange
ment, and that the adjournment will be
delayed until Saturday. The pro
gramme, therefore, with reference to
tlse adjournment, so far as one has been
arranged, is to adjourn on Satur
day, the 22d Inst., until Thurs
day, the 3d of January.
Some senators predict that the final vote
Dn the Nicaragua bill will be reached
*his week, but the friends of the bill
eareely hope lor this result. They

yet taken definite shape. Senator Oaf?
fery's objection to an agreement for a
vote on the bill on Wednesday next Is
understood to have been mode upon
constitutional grounds, and it is quite
probable that he, with several other
senators, including Teller, Vest, George
and Vilas.wlll desire to be heard in op

be disposed of. Senator Cullom will to
morrow open the speaking for the week
with a speech on this question.
The Projectile* Must. Be Made
Somewhat Stronger.
Washington. Dec. 16.—With refer
ence to the more recant tests of the
Hurst gun at the Indian Head proving
ground, which have been represented
as unsatisfactory, 11. P. liurst, the in
ventor, claims that the failure of the
■run to meet expectations was due to
the manner of loading. He says he in
ters from reports of the experiment that
the outside charge was built up beyond
the end of tiie inner tube, causing an
explosion of the outside charge before
tiie tail piece of the projectile left the
inner tube. This fact would, be says,
account for the increased pressure re
ported. When Mr. llarst made this
representation to Commodore Sampson.
chief of the bureau of ordnance, he re
plied that the projectiles would have to
be made stronger, and a new design
made tor them.
It Is Liteely to Occur in the Near
Wasmxotox, Dec. 1(5.— In view of
the disinclination of congress to take
up the su^ar schedule of the tariff act,
and the consequent iniprobability of
any action such ns was recommended
by the president looking to the repeal
of the duty of one tenth of one cent on
sugar produced under the bounty sys
tem, the future action of the German
government is bstug awaited with some
apprehension here. The speech of the
German chancellor in the reichstag, in
which he made a strong point of the
discrimination imposed by the United
Mates towards German sugar, is ue
lieved to indicate the strengthening of
the policy which that government lias
adopted directed to the excising of se
vere restriction upon American prod
ucts sought to bu imported into Ger
many. At present Mr. Kunyon, our
minister to Germany, is working hard
to secure an amelioration of the rigid
order of exclusion m the case of
American cattle, and Secretary
Grcsham is in almost daily con
sultation with the German minister here
upon the same subject, as well as upon
that of cottonseeu oil, which has just
suftered a severe blow from the increase
of the import tax to2oo per cent, prac
tically exclusive. Up to this time no
appreciable degree of success has at
tended those efforts of our government,
the character of the negotiation appear
ing to indicate a purpose on the part of
the German government to procrastl
nate until congress decisively an
nounces its intention in the matter of
the sugar duty. As long as these eru
ditions obtain, our government is likely
to wait patiently, but should there be
any fresh attacks by the Germans upon
American interests, there is good rea
son to believe that the administration
will have recourse to the retaliation act
of ISiW, and, singling out some German
article, the importation of which into
the United States about equals in vol
ume the normal American cattlo and
meat traue with Germany, forbid its
The President to Be Absent From
Washington a Week.
Washington, Dec. 10. — President
Cleveland,accompanied by Dr. O'Reilly,
Capt. K. D. Evans ami Charles ffer
son, left Washington this evening ou
an Atlantic coast line train for a hunt

The trip has been in contemplation
since early fall and is taken at this time
in the hope that the outing will benefit
the president and eradicate the remnant
of his rheumatism, w-hicu still lingers
with him. The party will return iv
about a week.
Richmond, Va.. Dec. 16.—President
Cleveland's train arrived here at 7 p. m.
and made a stop of twenty minutes. He
came to the door and shook hands with
about two hundred people, who piled
over each other to reach him.

Market Showed Weak Ten

Closed Strong.
Aided in Causing a Rise—Pro

With a Tendency to Weakness
—Decline in General
Chicago, Dee. ir>.- Wheat had a soft
•pot early in the session, but It was
firm all over at the close. Compared
with yesterday's close, wheat is Jf,e
bicker. Cora is uv ! 4 (if;i s c. and pro
visions lower by l:2;-c for pork, oc in
lard and 10c in rib.*. Oats closed un
Bay orders were in the majority in
the wheat market at the opening, and
could only be tilled by paying a slight
advance over yesterday's closing price.
The comparative firmness of the En
glish and foreign market?, and the tact
that the week's exports from this side
went almost entirely from American
Atlantic ports, were the chief reasons
for the slight change in speculative
sentiment. The firmness displayed for
a few minutes at the opening soon gave
place to weakness when it was tele
graphed from Minneapolis that the
stocks in regular elevators would
show an increase for the week
of 750,000 bushels, and that stocks had
increased 1,100,000 bushels. Another
considerable addition to the visible sup
ply was immediately suggested by the
above announcement, and on that sup
position ail hope of improvement was
lost, and the price began to give way.
May, which at the opening brought
from 5Gj?gC to SS^e. had in the course of
half an hour declined to 58 3c. Some
of the heaviest local operators, and
many alj-o of the New York profession
als, began to cover, and that starting
others to buy, the market changed again
from weak to strong, and May lose
gradually until it was up U>sß%caround
which price it held during the last half
hour of the session. The shorts were,
perhaps, influenced to some extent by
the small receipts at primary markets
and the liberal export clearances from
Atlantic ports for t\venty : four hours.
Closing cables were mm. The market
closed firm at the best price of the day,
57% c for May.
Corn was strong after a weak open
ing. May started with a decline of }£c
and closed with an advance of >[email protected]> Js'c.
The opening quotation was 4'.s%c, and
it rose near the close to sU^c, with 50%
(it'so>4C the final •trading price. The
continued small receipts and generally
wet weather predicted for the country
tonight and all day tomorrow were the
chief factors in scaring the shorts and
encouraging the longs. Business was
fairly good after the advance started.
Another dull, uninteresting session
was passed in the oats crowd. Fluctua
tions were narrow and governed entirely
by corn. May sold from Sgj&c to 32 } A io
32% c and up t032! 4 c, at which price it
was offered at the close.
The trade in provisions was inconse
quential. racking to date was given at
1,148,000. against 093,000 for the similar
period of season a year ago.

New York.
New York, Dec. 15.— Speculation on
the stock exchange today was inactive
and the market was irregular and un
settled, but tending toward weakness
rather than strength, and most of the
shares dealt in closed at a decline from
the final prices made yesterday. There
was no very pronounced pressure to sell
except perhaps in Sugar, but there was
evinced a disposition to close out con
tracts especially in the matter of taking
profits where shown. The current news
of the street was mostly bearish. It was
rumored that the Chicago Gas dividend,
if declared, would be In scrip; fhat the
assets of Baltimore & Ohio have ma
terially decreased: that Germany
would take action to meet the
protective clauses of the sugar"
schedule of the tariff bill; that, the
foreign exchange market was harden
ing and would induce increased ex
portations of gold, and that a reorgani
zation of the Distilling aud Cattle
Feeding company was among the near
probabilities. On the other hand, it
was reported that the earnings of St.
Paul tor the second week in December
would show an increase, and the otter
ings of this stock by London and the
local traders were more readily ab
sorbed by reason thereof. The market
opened heavy and declined for the lirst

During the week the market has been
erratic in its course. In the early part
the repeal of the anti-pooling section of
the interstate commerce act by the
lower house of congress excited a favor
able Influence in the railway list, and
the senate caucus refusal to consider
the tariff question in Us relation to
sugar strengthened the stock of that
company, which Is the ackuowled stock
of the market. An improvement in
values consequent upon these favora
ble influences was partly lost during
the latter part of the week, when, by
selling 10 realize profits by clique ma
