Senator Mitchell has introduced
number of bills. Among them was his

Also the payment of (3.783 to Astoria
for property taken for a public building.
The Senntor has a number of other
measures which he intends to put in as
soon as he unds time
An effort is being: made to consolidate
all appropriations with the com rait toe
in the House. ..This is in the direction
of sealing down ail appropriations to tha
smallest possible amount. It is not lia

The other cities are somewhat ambi

more opposition in this Congress.
The order for introducing bills in the
Senate had been scarcely uttered when
Stewart, of Nevada, was np with his
free coinage bill. Whether it will pass
the Senate or not is not known. The
statement is made that enough Demo
cratic Senators, who last year favored
free coinage, will oppose it this year and
prevent it from going through, but it is
hard to see how such action can be pre
vented unless the Republicans arrange
the finance committee in such shape as
to smother any silver bill. It is gen
erally conceded that the house will pass
a free coinasre bill and that President
Harrison will have to disapprove of
such measure before the conventions
nominate Presidential candidates.
