The Committee on Immigration has
submitted to the Senate its report on
tne but establishing additional regula
tions concerning immigration to the
United States by increasing by three the
number of the excluded classes of aliens.
The first includes the illiterate over
12 years of ae, and speaking of these,
the report says, in view of the alarming
changes taking place in the character of
immigrants swarming into the United
States, the measure is not a harsh one.
Aged persons, however, are permitted to
come and join their families. The sec
ond class comprises persons partially or
wholly disabled from manual labor.
They are to be made the subject of a spe
cial inquiry, and proof must be procured
that they will not tecoine public cnargea.
The third class is made up of persons
who belong to societies who lavor or jus
tify the unlawful destruction of property
or life. Under the present law, says the
report, they can enter the United States,
but the measure proposed is to remedy
this condition of affairs.

House with information showing the
amount of said postal deposits and the
debt of Hawaii, the rate of interest, etc. ;

The President has sent to the Senate
the report of the American delegates to
the International Monetary Conference.
After referring to the programme of the
United States, which was discussed in
all its phases, the delegates refer to the
report of the committee of twelve, which
reported affirmatively upon one proposi
tion, that it was wise to withdraw irom
monetary circulation all gold coins and
all paper redeemable in gold of less de
nomination than 1, 20 francs or 20
marks and substitute silver money for
them. In the discussion cf the various
propositions the attitude of nearly all
the governments disclosed the general
reo gnition in the conference that the
monetary evil required a remedy. After
citing copiously from the speeches male
the delegates say the conference is to re
convene May 30, 1893. In the meantime
it is expected that the propositions and
plans already submitted to the President
ot the cony, ation ana by mm transmit
ted to the several governments through
their delegates will be considered. It is
anticipated that the delegates upon the
reassembling of the conference will be
able to state definitely the views of their
respective governments as to what plans
are practicable to secure a greater u e of
silver as a part of the metallic mouey of
the world. In concluding the report the
delegates say it is the earnest wish of the
conference that a plan for the enlarged
use of silver .money, acceptable to the
nations and adequate to the monetary
situation, may result from us oelibera
tions. No recommendations or sugges
tions ot any kind are made.
