Baker of Kansas has introduced in the
House a bill for the free coinage of silver,
making it unlawful for any person to
make any contract, note, draft or bill
payable in any specific coin or currency.

a favorable report upon the bill paying
II. W. Shipley (2,487 for excess work
and money expended on tbe Nes Perce
reservation in 1380. Shipley is now a
resident of Jackson county, Or.
The House Committee on Commerce
has decided to report the two bills to
amend the Interstate Commerce law to
meet the Snpreme Court decision in the
celebrated Coanselman case, and also
J udge Gresham's recent decision.
The Senate Mines and Mining Com
mittee has considered Caminetti's
bill. Senator Felton, ex Representative
Berry and Caminetti made statements,
alter which the bill was reported to the
Senate with Felton's amendments,
heretofore printed, and Berry's pro
vision, prescribing a penalty for viola
tion of the law by the miners.
Commissioner Ranm of the pension
bureau appeared tbe other day before
the subcommittee of the House Com
mittee on Appropriations, which is pre
paring tbe pensions appropriation bilL
The original estimate for 1894 made by
the Commissioner was (165,000,000. A
subsequent estimate a few days ago
placed tbe amount required at (172,000,
000. He was asked as to the reason of
the increase, and explained his former
fixures by saying be had presumed the
new administration would not do as
much work as his had done, but admit
ted, if it did allow as many pensions,
(172,000,000 would be needed.
The President is still giving close con
sideration to the subject of freight
brought over the Canadian Pacific. Two
new points have been discovered, vis. :
That the original law specified that the
consular-seal system was to be applied
to freight which was the product of con
tiguous foreign countries only, and that
by the Canadian law United States con
sular officers guilty of fraud in the
United States are not amenable to arrest
so long as tbey remain in Canada. A
large bulk of the freight handled by the
Canadian Pacific, and which comes into
this country under consular seal, is the
product of other foreign countries, nota
bly Japan and China. Did this class of
freight not enjoy tbe privilege of the
consular-seal system, they would enter
this country at an American port and be
transported by American railroads.
These two points are considered impor
tant as giving the President, if he
chooses by exercising it, the right of
suspending the operation of the consular-seal
system without action by Con
