WASHINQTON , Juno 22. The house
committee on patents have agreed
upon n bill reorganizing the patent
office , increasing the commissioner's
salary from § 4,500 to § 0,000 , subordi
nates 15 to 50 per cent , and creating
the office of deputy principal exam

view with the president and requested
from the president n respite fet
Guitcau , and asked for n commission
to inquire into his sanity. They
think that ho will give the mattoi
earnest consideration.
It is thought barely possible , though
not probable , that President Arthur
may yield to the petition presented to
day nnd grant n brief respite for Gui
tcau for the cole purpose of having
his sanity pronounced by a competent
board of examiners. The president
is known to have expressed a wish
that it might bo shown that no sane
American killed President Garfield ,
but does not think that a board would
pronounce Guitoau insane and that if
u respite was granted it will be merely
to fornvor silence questioning on the
subject. - * !

and Merchant's Dispatch. The whole
sale grocers nnd butter and provision

dolny in shipping goods was causing
the loan of hundreds of thousands of
dollars daily to merchants of this city.
They all favor the men on the strike ,
and said it would bo wise for the
roads to pay the advance asked for.
If the delay continues much longer
they might have a heavy bill of dam
ages to suttlo for injury to goods.

mill has been running throe yoarawitlk
non-union men.
A meeting of vtho iron finishers will
bo hold July ; td for the purpose of
devising means of regulating puddlora
in the Amalgamated association , as
they have u majority on a vote and
am declnro n strike. The finish
ers wont a two.thirds vote made neces
sary , as the puddlora nro too great a
majority nnd leave other workers in
the minority when their interests are
against n strike.
