Washington, Jan. 7. This week prom ises to be a mot eventful one in the house of representatives. It may not only determine the fate ot the Carlisle currency bill so far as the lower branch of congress is concerned, but in the event of the defeat of the measure have a far reaching effect on the currency qu-tion and on the policy of conirress an the ad ministration. The Democratic house cau cus which will convene nt 3 o'clock this afternoon, unless postponed on account of the death of Representative Post, will bo the first imiiortant Ktep, as it is expected to test whether any bill can command a majority and what the form of the bill is to be. The house adjourned immediately after its nsseuiblafre out of respect for Post. A rule fixing the future course of debate will not be introduced until tomorrow, and its terms will depend largely on the events of the caucus, if it is held. It had been hoped to (tet a final vote by tomor row or Wednesday, but Springer says it may be necessary to let the debate run through tho week. There are evidences, however, that a coup d'etat will be put in execution by tomorrow by those opposed to the bill. This will be a motion to strike out all after the enacting clause, which would be equivalent to a motion to kill the bill. It was by a stroke of this kind that the Morrison tariff bill was summar ily killed lone before its friends had anti cipated a llnnl vote. The parliamentary li-nders of the house have lieen consulted and have agreed that this move is regular' and in accordance with the rules. They are expecting the move, nlthough it is not known positive ly that it wil be executed. If an early vote is thus precipitated and all of the bill after the enacting clause struck oirt it would do away with the livc-minte debate a:id put a summary end to the struggle. If, however, the motion to strike out should fail to sveure a majority the five minute debate would proceed until the final vote was taken. The senate followed the course of the fa juse and as soon as the death of General Post was announced adjourned. Another Statement from Tarkey. Washington, Jan. 7. The following official telegram has been received at the Turkish legation in this city, dated at Constantinople: "Certain newspapers have maintained lately that the number of Armenians in Turkey teaches many millions, and that they are badly treated.

To prove that the Armenians are not ill-treated the telegrams says they have schools and a literature. Coatianed the Currency Bill Talk. Washington, Jan. 7. Another day in the house was consnmrtf ry debate over the Carlisle currency plan. In which Cockran was the most conspicuous figure.

Cincinnati, Jan. 7. Judge Buchwalter has delivered an elaborate opinion in the case tf the extradition of the Rev. A. S. Hampton, colored, demanded by Kentucky for shooting and wounding a Mr. Dun ham in Green county. The court said that no assurance hod been given that Hamp ton would have a fair trial. He found both the indictment and the requisition de fective in form.but on the broader ground of securing the rights of the prisoner the court held that he was justified in refus ing to surrender Hampton. The pre sumption thtt he would die without legal process if sent b.u-k h id not bacn rebutted by proof of any kind. The court cited statistics of nineteen lynchings in Kentucky within a comparatively short time, and re called the fact that one of tho victims had been surrendered by this court. The court felt the obligation to perform a moral duty in this case which could not be enforced by mandamus or other proceedings, lie was willing to re mand the prisoner upon proper indict ment and requisition if the governor or other authorities had provided a force to protect him from violence and insure an impartial trial. This had not been done and the court felt bound to discharge the prisoner. So much interest was taken in the case that other judges left their benches to listen to the delivery of the court's decision. Celebrated Washington's Wedding Day. Xew Yokk. Jan. 7.
