Wilkksbahrk, Pa., Jan. 17.—A genuine and very lively spook is causing considerable consternation in the vicinity of Factoryville, near here. It makes its headquarters iii the barn of Captain D. O. Gardner. The spook considers it his special business to frighten people who are not well behaved, and already has done much to improve the morals of the community. Joseph Smith was visited by the spook and since the occurrence has been a changed man; he does not drink and has obtained regular work. It severely resents intrusion, and John and Charley Reynolds, two adventurous brothers who attempted to encroach upon its privacy, received a repulse they will not soon forget. They entered the barn with a lantern, and as soon as they got inside the flame turned blue, the wagon wheels Hew around like pinwheels on the 4th of July and an unseen something threw* them dowm and buffeted them about until they were glad to discontinue the investigation, which had cost John a black eye and Charley two teeth. NMMnlty For Prompt Action ami the Kn-grosM-il Condition .if Congree on Other Subjects Hakea It Inadvisable to Await New Legislat ion. Which I* Promisee! Later Other Washington Topic*. Washington. Jan. IT.—A meeting of the senate finance committee w*as beld yesterday afternoon for the purpose of considering Secretary Carlisle's letter and bond bill. After the conclusion of the meeting Senator Voorhees, as chairman, issued the statement given below*. In making it he said he did not assume to represent the views of the entire committee, and yet he knew* of no op|x>sition in the committee to the opinions expressed. He submitted his statement to the full committee before giving it to the public. It is as follows: The embarrassed condition of the treasury and the necessity for prompt action for its relief are fully realized. There is not the slightest ground, however, for apprehension that the public credit will suffer or lie endangered, for the reason that ample authority already exists by law for the secretary of the treasury to strengthen his coin reserve to any extent required and to meet every demand that eau lie legiti mate. The power of the secretary for the issue of bonds needs nothing beyond what Is given by the act of Jan. 14, 1875. The only desirable object to lie attained by new legislation at this time on that subject is to make a shorter time bond with a lower rate of interest, and yet the secretary feels assured that he can negotiate bonds issued under the act of 1875, running only 1<> years, on practically a 3 per cent basis. It seems therefore that it would lie wiser, safer and lietter for the financial and business interests of the country to rely upon existing law with which to meet the present emergency rather than to encounter the delays and uncertainties always incident to a protracted discussion in the two houses of congress. This view of the condition of the treasury admits of but little if any delay, and of no uncertainty at all in the final action to lie taken. It would lie trifling with a very grave affair to pretend that new legislation concerning the issue of bonds can la* accomplished at this time and in the midst of pre-eut elements ami parties in public life without elaborate, extensive anti practically indefinite debate. it is also obvious to every one that the consideration and discussion of the tariff now going on in congress will render any financial legislation at this time far more difficult and complicated than it might lie under another and different circumstance. It is proper to say in this connection that the senate finance committee for several weeks past has had this subject under almost constant consideration, and that the bill submitted by Mr. Carlisle has been examined and discussed with the greatest care. The interest of the committee will by no means lie a batell from this time forward. The fact that much remains to lie doue is fully recognized. Whatever deficiency in the revenues may exist during the current fiscal year will lie promptly provided for by appropriate and efficient legislation at the earliest practicable moment. The senate finance committee authorized Senator Voorhees to introduce the Carlisle bill in the senate, and also to present the letter from the secretary of the treasury*, which w*as done. This authorization is not intended to mean, however, that the committee has decided to make an effort to pass the bill or that it has further indorsement than to allow it to be printed and referred to the committee in the regular way* for consideration. PROCEEDINGS IN CONGRESS. Long Debate on the Taking Elt’eet of the Wool Schedule. Washington, Jan. 17.—Very little progress was made with the amendments to the tariff bill yesterday. The Republicans, under the leadership of Mr. Burrow’s, made another struggle to secure the right to offer amendments alternately with Mr. Wilson, but the chairman held, in view* of the precedent of procedure w hen the McKinley bill was under consideration, that Mr. Wilson, on behalf of the majority of the committee, was entitled to perfect the bill before it xvas thrown open to miscellaneous amendment. {Several minor amendments w*ere agreed to, the most imjiortant being that to increase the duty* on condensed milk to 2 cents a pound. Almost the entire afternoon w*as spent in discussing the date uiKin which the free wool schedule, and the corresponding reduction on wool, should go into effect. No conclusion was reached. Senate Doing*. Washington, Jan. 17.—The Hawaiian controversy was again brought to the attention of the senate yesterday, and there was a half hour's spirited discussion be-tw*een Senators Hoar, Gray and Daniels.

Senator Palmer (Dem.. Ills.) ojieued the discussion in an argument in favor of the bill. To Helical h IVnnion Eau Scctlun. Washington, Jan. 17. — The house committee on tensions yesterday ordered a favorable re I* >rt on the bill of Representative Moses so repeal that section of the revised statutes which reads:    “No money on account of pension shall be paid to any person, or to the widow, children or heirs of any deceased person, who in any* manner voluntarily engaged in, aided or ..betted the late rebellion against the authority of the United States.”    ___ Supreme Court Probability. Washington, Jan. 17.—There is some talk about the senate end of the capitol about the probability of the president sending the name of Senator Gray of Delaware to the senate for confirmation Sibley Ila* a Plan With Which He Would Relieve the Treasury. Washington, Jan. 17.—Representative Sibley of Pennsylvania has prepared a bill to pay pensions in a new* issue of 2 per cen! bonds. He proposes to offer it to the house Kl case a bill is presented for a general issue of bonds. Mr. Sibley’s bill is designed to give pensioners the benefits usually accruing from lionds, and also to give the government a ready means of meeting pension obligations. His plan is to make the bonds in the denominations of $20 up to $100, and to make them legal tender except for customs dues. This would allow them to circulate as jwper currency. His plan contemplates the issue of such bonds until the amount reaches $50 per capita for the population of the country*. Mr. iSib ley* intends to suggest his plan to Secretary Carlisle, and iii any event to offer it as an amendment to t he general bond proposition if one comes before the house. Way* and 'lean* Meeting.
