the following from Its correspondent at
Homo :
General Slmmonds , the Ungllsh special
envoy for the Maltese affairs , seems to en
counter some dlnicutties in accomplishing
his missions The dlMculttcs this time coma
not from Ireland , because the general never
had any Irish nffalrs entrusted to
him , but from Franco The reason
is very simple England desires a kind of
Catholic patriarchate erected ut Maltn , to
proslao not only over Malta but ulso over
Egypt and the Eni-llsh possessions in Africa
Of course Franco , which already possesses
the primatlcal sco of Algiers , with Jurisdic
tion-over nil Africa through Curdinnl Lavl-
gnric , cannot now revoke this protectoruto
Cardinal Lavlgerlo will booh visit Homo
in regard to this matter , and I nm certain
the holv sco will respect the reasoning of
the cardinal and of Franco As regards the
other political views of England , I Imvo it
from a good source that the people will nc-
cept the offer of havlnir a stable English
representative nt Home , hut on condition
thut ho will never iaterforo in Irish nf
falrs Leo XIII has declared acalu that ho
will never treat of Ir.sh affairs with Eng

made by United States marshals at points
where United States courts are located , thur
entailing an unnecessary expanse and preventing -
venting tbo attendance ot the friends of the

The late Mr Laird of Nebraska Introduced
a bill in the last congress providing that no

that the sulo shall take place at the court
house of the county where the real estate is
located Mr Laird also introduced a
bill prohibiting attorneys from charg
ing fees in foreclosure proceedings
brought by nonresidents It provides
that no Judgment In nny court of tha United
States shall borcafter bo given for attorneys
fees In suits for tbo foreclosure of mortgages
on real or personal estate for the collection
of promissory notes or other contracts in

near-reports on the tariff
George II Wnllaco of Missouri road n
paper on the necessity of maintaining the
duties on imported wool nnd suggested nn
ndjustnblo tariff , which would diminish
when wool was scarce nnd high priced nnd
increase when it was plentiful and low Ho
claimed Imperfections In the present classi
fications , saying thnt pantaloons were made
of third class or carpnt wool , selling ut KJ.50
per puir ; that it was used uvcrywhuro nnd for
ull kinds of wool manufacturing , ns well as
carpets , demonstrating that the importation
of third class wool Is diminishing the produc
tion of wool lu America Witucss said the
actual cost of the production of wool was
nbout 20 cents a pound , and thut no money
could bo made at that figure
F. B. Bennett of Boston , editor of the
American Wool Reporter , was the next wit
ness Ho said the petition for reduced du
ties on wool for the bonclltof manufacturers
who furnish our domestic wool growers
the solo market for their fleece , would
secure a great many signatures nmong
that portion of our agricultural population
concerned in raising wool , Hennelt spoke
ot nn ad valorum petition to bo proscnted to

tha lurgest merchants and manufacturers ,
and reading letters from exports lavorlng
this syslom of tariff In answer to Chair
man McKintoy , witness sold personally ho
favored the nd valorem petition Ho be
lieved an nd valorem duty of 40 nor cent on
combing nnd ! )0 ) per cent on carpet wool
would afford sufficient protection
J. F. Glbbs of Greoloy , Cole , taking the
accounts of his Colorado farm showed that
133,000 , pounds of raw wool cost the grower
about 23 cents per pound At the seaboard
it cost U0 cents nnd after scouring pretty
nearly 90 cents Adjourned until tomorrow

large staff of learned men was omuloyed
to study methods for carrying out
practically the theoretical requirements
agreed upon as necessary by the delegates ,
