Senator Dubois has introduced a bill
mLak?n.?.?onner' Fen7 port of entry.
The Dill is indorsed by the Treasury De
partment, and may pass this session.

propriation bill this year for new cruis
ers or battleships. One new $400,000
gunboat ia the only vessel provided for.
The total appropriation is $2,000,000 less
than last year.
The best informed people beliAVM them
will be an extra session not later than
the middle of April. It is believed the
Democratic leaders think this, and for
that reason they are not attempting to
crowd some matters of legislation they
feel are necessary.

ington for the purpose of answering the

sing the same general conclusions in a

ployer. In conclusion the opinion ia
expressed that the evils disclosed bv the

dies, if any can be devised, must origi
nate with the State governments.
The naval appropriation bill aa asread
upon by the Committee of Naval Affairs
carries an aggregate amount in round
numbers of $20,607,000. The appropri
ation for the current fiscal year la $23,-
043,200, ana tne estimates tor next year
j,ws. mere is no appropriation
in the bill for the proposed naval review
next May. The Senate, therefore, will
nave to do looxea to tor the appropria
tion to carry out the promise implied in
our invitation to foreign nations. One
new gunboat is authorised, and for the
payment of vessels heretofore author
ised to be built $6,150,000 ia apnronri-
ated, including $250,000 under the
bead of "equipment." Among the ap

Secretary Foster of the Treasury De
partment haa been notified that the
American flag will be formally raised
upon the In man steamers City of New
York and City of Paris at New York on
Washington's birthday. The event will
be celebrated with great porno. Manv
distinguished people have been invited.
ine President, who regards the act of
the (Jitv of New York and the Citv of
Paris in taking American recristftr "and
sailing under the Stars and Stripes as the
crowning act of his administration, will
himself pull up the flags. He will be
accompanied to New York by all the
membeSH of bis Cabinet, and on that oc
casion will also be present the members
of the Senate and House Naval Affairs
Committees, distinguished members of
Congress and the principal officers of the
navy Department as tneir invited guests.
When the Senate Committee on For
eign Relations reported the Russian ex
tradition treaty, it was with an amend
ment that attempts to murder the Caar
or any member of the royal family shall
oe conaiaerea non-poiiticai onenses, re
gardless of what the motive of the crim
inal might be. and that being non-polit
ical they should be extraditable. This
clause was productive of a great deal of
debate. Turpie was the champion for
the right of asylum, but the committee
was finally sustained. Turpie was not
satisfied with this action, and intro
duced a resolution recently intended as
an offset to the terms of the treaty. The
resolution declares it is the sense of the
Senate that jurisdiction in what is
known as political offenses ought not to
be extra territorial, and no treaty should
be approved which proposes to take from
the courts of the United States the right
to determine whether or not ah offense
is political under the law of nations.
Business men in public life fear that a
financial disturbance ia near at hand. It
is said that Secretary Foster has pre
pared to avoid any difficulty in the Treas
ury by purchasing gold by issuing an
enormous amount of bonds. As high aa
$200,000,000 rumor places the amount.
This statement is made flatly, and goes
so far as to say that the bonds have al
ready been placed and an agreement
reached for their immediate exchange
for gold, the arrangement being made in
anticipation of the result of the silver
vote in the House, which it is feared will
precipitate a crisis. Whatever may be
done by the present Secretary of the
Treasury, it is now conceded that Cleve
land win early call an extra session of
Congress to repeal the Sherman law and
by his own personal power and actual
patronage and persuasion force the bill
through, beginning by having the House
organiiea unaer common-sense rales,
whioh will bring the House to a vote.
