WASHINGTON , Oct. 1. The outlook this
Week for the Bcnato Is very uncertain. It
xvlll prolmbly bo n week of surprises , and
Ihnrliln n. niivnthllltv of rcnctltim ntl
mont whereby the repeal bill will bo defi
nitely and finally disposed of. This will not
come except through compromise. Whllo
there has been no cessation of the effort to
eccurc an agreement , the Indications are
that there will be none until It becomes evi
dent to all that the bill cannot bo passed or
defeated In Its present-shape. There may
be , as there has been during the past week ,
nn occasional discussion during the morning
hour for the consideration of some resolution
of Inquiry , but nothing moro. Thcro has been
only ono formal notice of a speech to bo
tnado , from Senator Call for tomorrow.
Messrs. Cockrell , Kyle , Martin , Power and
Uubols have all privately expressed thci-r
Intention to talk during the week , and
Messrs. Teller and Morgan will probably fin
ish the speeches begun by them last week.
Senator Jones of Nevada has not spoken
during the present debate and Is known to
bo preparing a very exhaustive treatise
upon the silver question. Ho will probably
consume the larger part of two or three
days. Senator Cockrcll's speech will also bo
his first speech of thu session and will prob
ably bo long. All these speeches will bo In
opposition to repeal. None of the repeal ad
vocates have so far glvon intimation of any
tlcslro to talk , except Messrs. White of
Louisiana and Palmer.
AH to l.linltlnc IH'Imto.
The specter pf night sessions has again
been laid. The truce limiting the time fet
debate to seven hours a day has expired by
limitation tomorrow , but Mr. Voorhces said
yesterday that ho would make no effort to
terminate It. at that time , as a great many
of the republican senators would bo absent
during the week.
The democratic senators who are not cs
pcclnlly Identified wlfh the administration
nro still unable to reach an understanding on
n compromise measure and are not making
aio1 progress. The republican senators who
advocate repeal have dropped out of the ne
gotiations for the present. There Is dis
agreement upon the amount of silver to bo
purchased and coined upon the bond proposi
tion. It may bu stated almost definitely that
there will be no compromise upon the basis
suggested Friday last.

Yesterday Mr. Patterson's announcement
that the Anglo-Saxon race would dominate
in the south no matter wlmt laws might bo
passed to repress It stirred up thu repub
licans nnd will probably furnish the text for
some lively speeches during the cominir
week. Some of the hip men on both sides

cratic side , and Heed , Dolliver. Henderson

conference with Superintendent Stump con
sidering the regulations to ba carried out on
the Canadian border to prevent the entrance
of undesirable Immigrants.
"Tho arrangement that has been made Is
a most satisfactory one , although It is not
with the Canadian government , " said Dr.
Seniier. "Tho co-operation of the Canadian
Railroad and Steamship company has been
secured and the agents will act with us.
The United States will send six Inspectors
to Canada , and they will look out for the
ports of Quebec , Point Levis and Halifax.
"On thu border line , where it is impracti
cable to put Immigrant inspectors , the cus
toms Inspectors will do the work. The
steamship and railroad companies are both
to aid the government in singling out such
pcoplo as are contract laborers , polygamtsls
and persons likely to become public charges.
Such us escape the vigilance of thu steam
ship companies will bo caught by the railroad
pcoplo , or by Inspectors and will bo sent

companies have agreed to carry them under
the same conditions as the lines carrying
' .Immigrants from European ports to thu
'United States.
"To such Immigrants as are entitled to
land , there will bo issued passports con
taining complete descriptions of the persons
to whom they arc issued. Ii will guarantee

Framers of the Tariff Law May Increase the
Tax on Whisky.
Him ) Vtito on the Now Illll May Not He
nt this Scnalou nf Conuresi
Uoncrnl Vnn U'yok's I'cr-
lunnl I'lnns.
A great deal of pressure Is just now being
brought upon members of the ways and
means committee to Increase the tax upon
whisky In the tariff bill which they are
framing. The tax at present is UJ cents a
gallon , and It Is argued by many that It can
bo raised to $1.23 , an increase of 35 cer.ts a
gallon , and the burden will never be noticed ,
whllo at the same time the revenues derived
from the incrcnpo will bo more than sufficient
to meet the sugar bounty or maty othe.r ex
penses Intended to help worthy enterprises.
The demand for nn Increase of the whisky
tax comes from two classes. The ono Is
composed of-vhlsky dealers who are loaded
down with the goods nnd would make a neat
profit to the extent of the Increase. The
other class is of persons who would cither
Increase the government's expenditures or
continue some which it is proposed to cut off ,
or curtail in the new tariff bill. Just how
much the proposed increase of tax would
augment the government's revenues is not
known , but It would approximate ' 0,000,000.
This would cover a great many extraor
dinary expenses. It would save a great
11111115 * enterprises b5 * enabling thu present
protective duties lo bo maintained , or ( f in
ternal improvements or education to keen up
the expenditures.
While members of the ways and means
committee refuse to express opinions upon
thu subject , it is easy to ascertain that the
proposition to increase the tax upon whisky
is not popular. It is argued by them that it
would Increase the temptation to avoid the
paying of any tax upon spirits , increase
"ir.ojnshining , " and bring condemnation
from the consumers. If there is an increase
it will likely bo only slight , probably 10
cents a gallon.
Chance lor the Turin' Illll I'usHlnsr.
It Is now conceded by many loading demo
crats that unless the tariff bill can be brough t
bcforo the scnato for action ahead of the
regular appropriation bills , which must bo
In law prior to Juno 'HI , there is but the
slightest prospect of the measure getting
into law within the year , oven though the
minority is-willing that there should be tariff
legislation. If the tariff bill is adopted by
the house in time for it to reach the senate
finance committee by the middle of January ,
there Is no prospect that It will get out of
that committee , even with the most diligent
labor , before April. According to the custom
of congress , appropriation bills begin to ttr-
rive at the scnato from the house about
March. There are fourteen regular appro
priation bills and usually a half-dozen
deficiency and special ones. The latter
ones and probably throe or four of tlio reg
ular bills will bo in the scnalo before the
tariff bill is reported from the finance com
mittee , even under tlio most favorable cir
cumstances. Ai soon as appropriations be-
cin to appear they invariably drive off the
fioorall ether propositions , being paramount
to all others , as the5' provide for the running
of the government.
The regular appropriation bills , ninotcci
years out of twent5 * , hold the floors of thi
two houses of congress to thooxclusion of al
other important matter at the long session
between the months of April nnd Juty. I
would thus appear that the senate , cvci
though things go favorably , will not discus ,
the tariff till after next June , nnd so it wil
bo an easy matter for the minority , with ad
journmcnt and the campaign , and thei
another big lot of appropriations at the shor
session , beginning in December , to dofea
the adoption of any tariff measure.

Harrison has boon itching to bo
Senator Cullom's successor for many
months , but it was not till now , when lie
has secured the co-operation of Palmer nnd
the party is split up Into factions , that ho
has felt bold enough to como to the front.
The faux pas of Altgeld in pardoning the
nihilists has settled his senatorial ambitions ,
which have been causing him much trouble
for years and induced him to inai < o so many
sacrifices to become governor. President
Clo\ eland is opposed to Colonel W. 11. Morri
son and will do nothing for him but keep
him on thu Interstate Commerce commission ,
and so the democrats hero believe that the
I Palmer-Harrison machine will concentrate
all .forces upon Mayor Harrison when it
comes to electing a leglslatuio and selecting
Senator Cullom's successor a year honco.
There were never two men with characters
more different than Cullom and Carter H.

Bunt.ix , Oct. ' 1. The newspapers hero
.oilay publish less favorable reports regard-
ng Prlnco Ulstuarck's health. It was the
ntentlon of his family and physicians to re-
nove him to his homo at Frlodrlchsruhe yes
terday , but the prince was not In condition
to make the Journey.
The I3erlln papers quote as n continuation
of the reports that the prlncn Is not doing so
well us anticipated thu urgent requests made
jy the Hamburger Nnehrlchten that the
; > rlnco should not bo the object of popular
.tcinonstratlons or private greetings whllo
on his homeward journey.
Conflicting reports regarding the nature
of the prince's sickness are so many and
varied that It is useless to repeat them.
Almost every correspondent h.ts his own
theory us to the cause of Bismarck's present
illness and as to the exact condition of his
health. The facts remain that the great
statesman , on the whole , Is in very poor
health , and whllo ho lms frequent rallies
which give encouragement to his family and
physicians , there is no real gain in strength
and each attack of the neuralgia and Inflam
matory symptoms are said to bu more severe
than thu previous attacks. Finally , the
l > rlnco's power of recuperation is un-
.loubtcdly diminishing under thu strain of
Ills Ion ? Illness.
While- the discussion regarding Prlnco
Bismarck's health continues nnd the pros
pect of a reconciliation between the ex-
chancellor and the emperor grows still
slighter every day , tho'feeling of resent
ment against Franco on account of her al
leged demonslraliveness in connection with
thu visit of the Uussi.ui licet to Toulon , is a
subject of irritation.
( , > iuu-r l of .Military Olllcorit.
It U claimed the military attaches of the
powers comprising the Dreibund have boon
much shown the cold sliouldo.r by the
French ofllccrs , and. as n retaliatory meas
ure , the military authorities hero propose to
withdraw all German military attaches
from Franco in order to force thu French
government to withdraw Its military at
taches from Germany. Austria and Italy.
The Gernun authorities are .said to be all
the more determined to take this step , nb
the military attaches of the French embassy
hero are said to have been keeping up a ropu-
lar spy system on the basis whicu Franco
hail always accused Germany of adopting
previous to the war of lsrO-71.
There are people , however , who claim that
the "spy1' agitation is the work of the mili
tary party In Germany , which anticipates
opposition in Parliament to the de
mands which will bo made for an
increase in the army and navy ex
penditures , as previously outlined in
the dispatches. In any case tlio military
authorities are making the most of the
alleged insults to German military attaches
in France , and of the alleged spying of
French military attaches in Europe , all of
which goes still moreto confirm the state
ment to the oA'ect that the feeling of irrita-
tioiuigaiiiBt'Fntnoo and tholaitcr's spirit of
pugnacity are increasing , and that unless
matters change decidedly before long things
will focus to a point which may cause that
long-looked-for spark to fly which will set
lire to Europe's powder magazines.
Arioliic Hurnpu'M I.onions.
In the meanwhile the arming of the le-
glens of Guropo continues and the day of
the general conflagration seems to oe approaching
preaching moro rapidly duy by day. It fact
there ure pcoplo hero who hint that tnero
may bo serious riots in Paris and elsewhere
in France upon the occasion of the visit of
the Hussian Hoot to Toulon , for it is claimed
that the "firecracker party" in France is al
most certain to make the Russian visit the
occasion for a demonstration against the
Germans and Italians , not to mention the
English , against which country the oxtra-
cmonstratlve class of Frenchmen claim to
lave well founded cause for resentment.
The Russian government has anticipated
hcso possible riotims demonstrations for
ome time past , and it is with the object , of
Tying to prevent them that the czar and his
mibass.ulor in Paris , liaron do Mnrcnheim
lave been throwing cold water upon inllain
natory Franco un.l warning President Carnol
mil his advisers against the danger of being
oo demonstrative. Hut all the warning It :
he world will not prevent the French fron
miking u tremendous fuss over the Uusslai
isit and no amount of argument will con
nice the French pcoplo , as u whole , that
ho visit of the Russian lloct to Toulon is
inly a return visit , out of common courtesy
or the visit of the French licet toCronstndt.
Frenchmen In general Insist that the visit
of the Russians is Intended to warn Europe
hat Russia will hack Franco against her
enemies and nothing at present will change
that opinion in Franco.

3lty. Later in the day , under extreme pres
sure , Slam nurucd to sign both tlio treaty
nml the convention annexed. Do VII-
ler.s will take his leave of the
iting on Wcdncsda.v. The clause originally
n the treaty whcachy Slam was to allow
my numberof French agencies on the right
liank of the Makonc anil cede gratuitously
: ill lands required for this purpose , baa boon
withdrawn and a clause substituted which
only demands facilities for navigation and
igcncy works.
It was nt first stipulated that Franco
should continue to occupy Chantiiuntm until
the complete evacuation of the left bank of
the Mekong. This appears to have been
withdrawn The convention is now
preceded with a preamble declaring
that it settles finally all provisions-
of the ultimatum. According to the
declaration , Devilliers Intended to evacuate
Chantaboun as early as possible. Among
the motives v hlch led Slam to accept the
convention was the honorable resolution of
the king not to sacrillco llio Drnish o'llccrs'
demand , which Devilliers had abandoned
with the demand for reparation for the
Pakeran Incident.

The Times corrospondcnt-nilds1 that -there
is.ronlly comparatively satisfactory to the
convention but the most unsatisfactory ,
unless Franco fulfills her pledges. The
great danger , the correspondent adds , is
that Chautaboun , which is the key to the
Gulf or Slam , will remain for a long time in
the hands of the French.

MA.vcitnsTF.tt , Kng. , Oct. 1. A very lively 'f '
and interesting light between a number of
English anarchists and a squad of pollco
took place hero todii5 * . The pollco It appears
have long been aware that the anarchists
had formed a group In this city , and that
they were holding meetings at irregular in
tervals. It had been frequently suggested
to the pollco that It would not bo a bad Ideate
to break up this assembling of very advanced
Kngllbh radicals. To thosu suggestions the
pollco replied that It was Impossible for
tVpm to Interfere with the meetings of the
anarchists groups of Manchester unless
some formal complaint was madu to them ;
the authorities holding Jint the pollco had
no authority to take action unless the an
archists acted In a disorder - manner.
' For a long time the anarchists kept
within the bounds of the law and order , In
so far that they claimed lo bo simply honest
worklngmon nieetini * ; to discuss politics
from their own standpoint. The discovery
of the anarchists' plot to blow up the House
of Parliament in Vienna and the attempt of
ho Spanish anarchist Pallas , to kill the
'oimnamlor-in-chlol ' of the Spanish forces ,
seems to have aroused the English anarch-
sts to n pitch of unusual excitement , for
they commenced drinking immoderately ,
shoutinir and cheering at their meetings and
making things very disagreeable for the
loacoful residents of the neighborhood of
their meeting place.

Had been looking for for formal complaint of

sembly rooms of the reds was made today by
the police. But the attempt to take them

anarchists , who were full of fight ; they
seized chairs and other pieces of furnlturo
mid defended themselves desperately against
Tlio latter , drew their batons , and one of
the most interesting rough and tumble
lights between the pollco aid anarchists
over witnessed in this country took plnco.
It was give and take , hammer and tongs , for
about fifteen minutes. First the pollco
would have the advantage and then the
anarchists would bo upon tha point of
driving the police from the house. Durlnir
the battle three anarchists wcro BO severely
injured that they had to bo taken to the
hospital , and a number of both aides re
ceived loss serious wounds. Several of tno
most desperate anarchists were taken into

BAKCF.I.ONA. Oct. l.--Tlio approaching
death of Pallas , the anarchist , was dis
cussed throughout Spain today. While very
llttlo sympathy Is expressed for the desper
ate man , the police are well a ware that ho
has a number of ( sympathizers. This has
caused them to t'iko the most extraordinary
precautions , and to imiko the most thorough
search for proofs of further outrages con
An Italian inmed Manclnl was arrested
today , charged with being one of his accom
plices , and it U said the pollco expect him to
place thorn in the w.iy of obtaining Informa
tion which will load to further and most
Important arrests.
The supreme council of war meets tomor
row In this city and It will endorse the sen
tence of the court martial , which condemned
Pnllas to bo shot In the back. It Is thought
probable that the date of the execution of
the anarchist will bu determined upon to
morrow and that It will bo decided to have
it take place in private or at some early hour
which will prevent the gathering of u crowd
of pcoplo among whom might bo found some
sympathisers with Pallas which might loud
