The Geotgta congressmen today received petitions by the soon from alt over Georgia, protecting against the passage of the com- pound lard bill; also telegrams that colored delegations from Atlanta and other points wanted to be heard before the committee. They are ail late, however, for the committee has closed hearings. 'An effort was made to bow are particularly annoyed over the en- thusiastic reception the republicans over tbo country have given to tho bill. They discuss nothing else. Indeed, numbers of them are to bo seen HI groups around the at all limos, talking over the of its passage It is IV almost unanimous opinion that the mil pass the house by a strictly party vote, the democrats hope to see it defeated hi (lie senate However, Quay will be on hand when it roadies that body.

There are four mam features In the bill wliidi southern men particularly coudenm. 1. Thai upon, the petition of five hun- dred c tizens ia any district, congressional elec- tions shall be placed wider thesttperviuonand control of federal authorities, the judge of the district court, takes the control entirely away from state otiftoecs. 2. The district judges will then appoint two registrars for each election precinct. Anyone of those registrars can order a name put on the registration list, but both-registrars must con- cur m striking one off. 3. Tho rsjpstrara -with two inspectors and two inspectors, six officers in all, shall hold at such places as the Inspectors shall fix. 4 On aplication of twenty-five citizens the ucimt} United States marshal in charge shall Appoint as many addition Adeputios aa he may deem necessary. In other he may have an array of marshals around the polls If he chooses. A- TALK WITH TiODOr. I had a talk with Henry Cabot Lodge about bis bill Han he says: "My bill to regulate congressional elections is long, but on examination it will be found to be very simple in principle and In operation. Its length 13 duo to the provisions for the system of balloting. These provisions cannot be stated tiriefiy, although as shown ia the Mas- BachusetU elections, nothing conld be simpler than when they are in practical operation. Tbe bill proceeds on two principles.' That the United States should take complete charge of the election of its congressmen, as tbe states do of the election of their state officers; and fhat the voting should be carried on upon the AustTatian or Massachusetts system, by secret and official ballot. There ia a wide-spread be- lief, whether well or ill founded, tbat con- gressional elections are improperly affected by corruption and intrmidatton at the polls, or by fraud in registration or tbe count. The former evils are met by the Massachusetts system of balloting, the latter by the United States tak- ing of' the election of its oTrn and registering counting; and "returning the vote, "The bill is absslutely fair as between the parties, and entirely national in its applica- tion. The election officers are to be appointed in equal numbers from the two leading parties by a judge of the United States court, who is permanent officer, and to be relied on to ap- point proper representatives of both parties. Thejelections officers have an Interest in seeing tbat no unfair advantage is taken at the elec- tion, and they are exposed to heavy penalties for misconduct. They have power to assist a voter unable to read write, but this assist- ance must be given inr the-presence of officers of the opposite party, and the penal- alties for disclosure' are very severe. Every provision is made- to secure absolute fairness between tbe parties, and sonia one party or personHa now profiting- by cheat- ing at elections, be no objection to this bill. So Ear as the constitutional point goes, three can be no reason about the question of the absolute power of coiigrees to take controljof its own elections, and'the decision- of the court inJeSt-parte'YaAoroughv realty eetethis matter-at rest. No district; under this bill, is compelled to adopt the system, except on the petition of five hundred voters, and unless there was a real need for patting a district under this number could not, as a rule, be easily-secured. The Massachusetts ballot meets the evils Trhich are usually charged upon tbe elec- tions in the north; the control of tlte elections by officers of tbe United States take equally with both parties, nieets the evils attributed to the of the south. Thus it will that the bill is distinctly national, ft does not strike at any section, but the evils which beset our elections everywhere. I believe that it ia in line with the general oJTthepeoptt that the elections of congressmen should be fair and above suspicion, and tbat there is no question of greater moment now before the country." MB. ALLEN TALKS. "When shewn Mr. had night, Representative John Allen, of Missis- sippi, said; "I do not like Mr. Inge's bill. t think the congressional elections should re- main under the control ot the states, where they have-alwaysfeeetK Mr. Ixxlgo-tMftfcrf the- system in Massachusetts a good one, and he tvauts to force it on the reat of the country, just because- it" is thg-Msagarbuifttti flysterm. Mr. Lodge ia not oalynuati hi coitgtets ivfao lias state pride. I thUnk the provides for a very and syfeten, and puts the control of elections under the control of federal registrars and inspectors, to be appointed, it is true, by federal'judges, nine- tenths of whom are republicans, and many of themJbitter partisans. I have never bad much respect Mr. Rodge'V opiiftbb on? elections einoe I ur institutions, can afford to wait for one nonient until the right of living heroes in the straggle for American homes, receive some recognition ot the men who have hosento represent them In congress.. -Behind these demands are more than ballots m he state of Kansas and the time ia not far dls- ant, when legislaton will heed the voice of their onstituents. These indications of opposition of the alli- ance to monopolies are troubling the politi- cians and they are becoming decidedly lervous. ORANGES SLIGHTLY NIPPED.

EVERAL IMPORTANT REDUCTIONS. Abolished, Match republican embers of the ways sad means committee ptacticaily agreed upos every point of vision on tariff and reductions be made from internal revenue, and will resent tlie bill to tbe full committee for its before the the veek. The auses relating to carpet Wools, Mexican toad and one or two other articles, have not >t been finally and definitely passed upon, tier bill is not absolutely completed and of coarse, bo subject to serision. It is believed to be a substantially finished measure far the majority of the committee is ofrrned. THE TAX TAKBK OFF TOBACCO. Tbe internal revenue-features of the bill are (follows: The entire abolition of all special upon dealers of all Idndsr, commonly as licenses; the tax npon snuff will be repealed; farmers and planters growing tobacco will have the liberty to sell to whom- soever tfaoj please without restraint in the ame manner as any farmer can dispose of any tlier product of bis land. The tax upon inan- nfacfcared tobacco will be reduced from eight ,ehts to four cents per pound; cigars, cheroots and cigarefjas will carry the same tax as is im- posed under the present law. Alcohol used in arts is free under substantially the same restrictions as are prescribed in the senate bill, lie reductions iu revenue from these sources will be In round numbers between. and Following are among the principal provis- ons tariff schedules: The earthenware and glassware schedules }mam substantially as in the existing law. "here are a nnrober of important in tie metal schedules. Existing rates are main- tained upon iron ore and pig iron. DUTiaS OH TJtOK IlKDUCBIK Barbed wire for fencing is made dutiable at 6-10 cents a pound, which is below the dnty upon, that kind of iron entering into other Beams, girders and structural iron is reduced from 1J cents to 6-10 cents a pound, which is a reduction below that of the senate bill. Railway iron is reduced to G-3O cents per pound, present rate being 917 ton, a redaction of about a ton, and eduction m the rate fixed by the senate bill. Duty on steel rails is reduced to per ton. )uty on tin plate has been increased to 2 2-1G Cents a pound. Pig tin remains free. The committee believe that with this encourage- meot tin plate-will be manufactured in this Tnere is an increase in tbe duty upon pocket buttery, which tbe committee justify upon the Atad of the depressed condition of that in- Wry in the United Stattw, and the sharp rniafliba competition tliat has already .been felt ronl Germany. Gun barrels are placed upon free UaC. Hand-sewing, needles are also  er cent advabyrem. THE LUMBER SCHEDITI.K. In the lumber schedule the'duty'on sawed planks and finished lumber is reduced per cent from the present rate. There is special provision inserted that ia case Canada ays an export duty upon lumber, then duties hall be collected according to the rates under he existing laws. The duties on Sumatra tobacco is increased to per pound. There is an increase generally along tbe en- ;ire list in duties upon agricultural products. The duty upon barley is raised to 30 cents per bnshtu, hops to 10 cents per xnind, buckwheat to 15 cents per bushel, maccaroni and vermaceUa, 2 cents a pound; oats 10 cents a bushel. The duty on agricultural seeds is increased. The duty on rice is reduced from 2J to 2 cents a pound; rice, floor and rioc meal, from 1 cent to J cents a pound, and broken rice to i cent a pound. Butter, and tha therefor, have the duty increased to 6 cents a pound. The duty on eggs is raised to 6 cents a dozen; potatoes to 25 cents a bushel. Hides, which are now on the free Ifst, are made dutiable at cents pound. There s a smalt increase in the duty upon Fruits. Oranges and lemons in packages of one and a quarter cubic feet or less, 25 cents per m packages exceeding XJ, and lot exceeding cubic feet 50 cents a package. llmsiiis cents a pound duty. Advances in duties have generally been conceded to the 'arming interests, where it is believed the increased duties will benefit the farmer. Spirits, wines and other beverages have been left as found in the existing law. Salt also has not been touched. Cotton manufacturers are left substantially as in the senate bill. Jute, raanilla and sisal grass are put upon the free list as is wool de nras which, enters into the finishing of leather. A reduction, is made in duty on binding AS TO WOOL. In tfte wool schedule wools of the first class, Known as clothing a pound, wools of the second class, known M combing wools, twelve oents; carpet wools, valued at twelve cents or less, cents per pound; valued at over twelve cents, eigltt cents a pound. This is a redaction of one-half a pound From the senate bill and an increase of cents From the present law. It is beJieved, bow- ever, that tbe definitions and class- ifications and restrictions provided for will make this dnty even more valuable to wool growers than the dntv fixed by the senate. In tbe Mills bill, wool was put on the free list, and dnty given to woolen fabrics wwfrom forty totorty-five per cent. As this bill makes wool dutiable, it gives compensation to tbe manu- facturers for the duty imposed upon wool. The difference between dnty given to nfsxftnren by tbe Mills bill and the measure is only ton per cent, After giving to the nwmtrfactwrew compensatory duty wool. Varna and cloths are made dutiable at forty per cent ad valorem additional, woolen goods at flity contend ready clothing at sixty per cent. The carpet schedule batoot yet been definitely arranged. It is understood, although there is some division in the commit- tee upon tbe snlyeot, tbat for the encourage- ment ot silk culture in United States datjr will be recommended upon raw silk. THK DtTTT OV SUGAR. Sugar, under and including 16 Dutch dard, is made dutiable at tfcirty-fira per cent. and above 16 Dutch standard at forty per cent. This gives five per cent additional duty to re- finers and as the standard ia raised from 13 to 16, the people of tbe United States' will he enabled in case tbe refmen combine to put up prices, to import sugar which will be in every way fit for family use. This is a cat in the duties of from fifty to sixty per cent. Molasses is made duti- able at twenty-five per cent advalorem, the present rate being specific. This is a cotiaid- eraMe reduction. committee has not yet settled what duties shall be levied upon lead ores. HUB be- ing one ol tbe few matters yet to be definitely passed upon. Among tbe new legislatives pro- visions proposed in the till is that MO inpottatims shall be made into United in order to put a .stop to tbe practice which has become "very common of Bending foreign goods into tbe United States with American brands thereon, tbe purpose being to deceive tbe and bare their wares supplant Ameri- can goods which-have established reputations. TO PREVENT IMPOSITION. The bill also repeals that section of the stat- utes wbicb gives to the United States and con- tractors under it, tbe right to import supplies nto this country free of dnty. By Ibis means t is intended to require the United States and all of its officers and contractors to be bound by tbe laws which it establishes for its citi- im. It is estimated by the fraraers of the bill that t will reduce revenues about SGO.OOO.OOO. Of redaction, from to will be secured by the cut on sugar, and from to by the in- ternal revenue features of the bill and the free ist, which contains with few exceptions, all the items in the senate bill and a tew others which were not in the senate bill, will.it is estimated, make a redaction of between ami HeviHions made throughout the tariff schedules are expected to make up the difference between the Minis named and g60.OQO.OOQ._________ THE WORK OF KKSCTTB. tbe from Off the Unfor- at Indianapolis.

CHATTAKOOOA, Tenn., March months ago the city costncii of Chattanooga obtained the services ot Frank Goodman, of as aa expert to exam- ine the city records, a work that had not been done for over two years. At a city council meeting tonight the expert reported that in January and February, Treasurer Stew warrants for in favor of outiftU cred- itors of the city, and indorsed the same to City Auditor Voron S. Wbiteside, to be paid to the said Creditors. These amounts, the ex- creditors. Upon ncef pt of this informatien, the city council declared tfee office of Auditor White- side vacant, and installed the new auditor, T. S. Stewart, into office. IK COHPAKT WITH MRS. MKTZ. In this connection, a few Interesting circum- stances arise, and may develop into genuine, tremendous sensation. JTJm separation of Mr. Ed. A. Metz and wife here last mouth, is remembered, and at that time it was thought that the separation was caused by the interference of a prominent Chattanooga official. Mrs. Metz left for Chicago, and a few days later was joined tliere by City Auditor 'VTniteside, whom it is said is greatly enamored of her. Since then "vThiteside has not re- turned to the city, and neither has tbe money turned over to him been heard from. Ineffec- tual attempts hare been made by his relatives to find him, but to no avail. Tbe last heard of him he was in Detroit, presumably facing towards Canada, accompanied by Mrs. Metz. An attempt been made here to strangle the sensation, but as the relatives of the auditor have refused to sign a paper to assume the amount of his de- falcation, the matter came in an official way before tbe board. TUB SOW OF A WBI.t, KlfOWIT WOJCAN. The expert is now working on the books of the auditor, which nave not been posted since last October, and startling revelatiens are looked for. Vernon Wbitesideis a son of Mrs. Harriett Wbiteside, one of tbe richest women in the state, and farmer owner of the entire top of Loofcoat mountain. He has a most estimable wife and three bright children living here. During his term of six years' service as dty auditor he made a most enviable record, but since his intimacy with Mrs. Mete, which began over a year ago, he has seemed to lose all self-control and interest in his family. The escapade of the auditor with Mrs, Metz, and the fear tbat he has absconded with con- siderable of the city's money, in company with the womma, has produced a tremendous sensa- tion.

The National Gazette believes that Count Herbert Bismarck will remain in office. It iys that tbe Prussian ministry has not signed. WHAT CACSKD THB It is stated today in well-informed political circles that the present difference between emperor and Prince Bismarck is irreconcilable. [t arises from the chancelor's refusal to to a request made by Dr. Wmdthorat, leader of the clerical party iu Germany, to restore duke of Cumberland, claimant of the of Hauover, the larger portion of tbe Guelpte fund. The attitude of the emperor in opposing Prince Bismarck in this matter in taken aa am indication of bis desire to conciliate tbe cleri- cal party. If the government is to secure working majority in new relchstag, it cannot well go without the oarty of the oenten which Dr. Windthorst controls. THK DKBATK UT THK D1IET.
