The total appropriation is $2,000,000 less

The best informed people believe there

The naval annronriation bill as agreed
upon by the Committee of Naval Allaire
carries an aggregate amount in round
numbers of 120,007,000. The appropri

643,266, and the estimates for next year

When the Senate Committee on For
eign Relations reported the Russian ex
tradition treaty, it was with an amend
ment that attempt to murder the Caar
or any member of the royal family shall
be considered non-pouucai onenses, re
eardleaa of what the motive of the crim-
inai mnitii uu. nuu iiwv uviuk uuu-uuiiit
iral thev should be extraditable. This
clause was productive of a great deal of
debate. Tarnie was the champion for
the right of asylam, but the committee
was finally sustained. Turpie was not
satisfied with this action, and intro
duced a resolution recently intended as
an offeet to the terms of the treaty. The
resolution declares it is the sense ot the
Senate that jurisdiction in what ia
known as political offenses ought not to
be extra territorial, and no treaty should
be anDroved which proposes to mice irotn
the courts ol the United States the right
to determine whether or not an offense
is political under the law ol nations.
Business men in public life fear that
financial disturbance is near at hand. It
ia said that Secretary Foster has pre
pared to avoid any difficulty in the Treas
ury by purchasing gold by issuing an
enormous amount oi bonds. As high as
t2U0,0O3,O0O rumor places the amount.
This statement is made flatly, and goes
so far as to say that the bonds have al
ready been placed ana 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 criais. Whatever may be
done by the present Secretary of the
Treasury, it is now conceded that Cleve
land will 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
organised under common-sens rules,
which will bring the Hoots to a vote.
