Hitt, of Illinois, called up the bill granting a pension of S1.200 a y,,„ t0 Mrs. Ma T. S. Parnell, daughter of Admiral Charles Stewart, with an amend-meht reductio the pension to 850 a month. After some opposition the amendment was agreed to and th** bill as 1 amended was passed. ! The rate bill increasing to §15 n<*r I month the pension to the widow of I Brigadier General Ayres, passed. The house then went into committee I of the whole (Mr. Payson, of 111ihois, in -the chair) on the tariff bill. Air. Pitch Af T*^0fk‘ spoke gainst the bill. Mr. Gear, of Iowa, (a member of the committee on ways and means) said the old proverb “Scratch a Russian and von : will find a tarter.'’ might be applied* to the democrats; for if the flimsy pretences ’ were scratched off a democrat, a freetrader would be found. In IS88 tin* pee- I pie had rendered their verdict. He I favored protection for any article that 1 was produced in this country if the L luted States could produce sugar in sufficient quantity to Supply domestic wants, he would foster it bv fair protec- i turn; but in* believed that was impossible I He was convinced that the United States I must look to other countries for her I -sugar. He contended that the sugar I schedule of the bill would be a blow 1 at the sugar trust. Mr. McMillan inquired how it was I that sugar trust securities had had such I a phenomenal rise lately. Mr. Gear suggested' the pending bill gave the refiners the protection of only four-tenths of a cent, while the Mills bill gave them one cent. Mr. McMillan replied the pending bill gave them free raw material. It was o\ idem from tile rise in sugar trust securities that the trust was not to be hurt by this bill. Mr. Gear (continuing) expressed his opposition toany trustor combine formed to enhance tin* price of the necessaries of lib*. The time had come for the American congress to end the sugar combine y passing tin* pending bill. This bill gave the people cheap raw sugar and cheap refined sugar, and destroyed root and branch tho greatest combine known to the cpuntry, a combine which might be called the American devil-fish, which had been devouring the substance of the people for almost a century. Mr. Crisp did not believe that to the manufacturer protection had been a beneficial system. As to the laborers in the manufacturing establishments as to the J tinners throughout the land, he felt sure the system had been injurious. The system (Prove out competition, rt diminished the number of producers of a given article, and increased the ease and facility with which they could combine to elevate tho price. The majority of the ways and means committee was pledged to the principle of protection and offered a sop to the farmer. It said to the farmer it put the duty on his products when the truth was that would do I him no good. The way to benefit the ' farmer was to give him free salt- "ive him free cotton, and reduce the price of necessaries of life. The gentleman on the other side claimed they were recording the verdict of the people. The people did not agree that the tariff question was finally settled at the polls. It was generally believed the protected industries had put together a great campaign fund by which they bought in “blocks of live" to vote to carry out their ideas. Mr Rayne, of New York, remarked that Hie gentleman from Texas (Mr. Mills) had said he knew how the republicans carried the election, and the gentleman from Tennessee (McMillin) intimated the postmaster general contributed money, lie (Rayne) noticed McMillin did not say anything about his presidential candidate and his cabinet officers who stepped up to the captain’s office and settled. m violation of the civil service law. I Applause and laughter. | Of course, the money was not to buy votes. M t. I j) ne then proceeded to argue in support of the bill. Mr. Wheeler, of Alabama, spoke against tho bill and the committee rose and the house took a recess. □ At the evening session the tariff debate was continued. Mr. Mike. of Illinois, attacked the policy of protection. Mr. Kerr. of Iowa, opposed bounties, i In the matter pf the bounty on sugar it was his opinion the foreign producer I could get four-fifths of the advantage of taking the duty off sugar. He was op-I posed to taxing one American industry I for the benefit of another. Mr. Fithian, of Illinois, entertained I like views. Mr. Morse protested against the long ! and short haul clause of the law and (argued that the remedy was to return to : tilt' let alone policy. Air. Goodnight opposed the bill. Mr. Atkinson regretted that the bill did not repeal the tobacco tax and place I a protective duty on sugar.    I Mr. Walker argued against the bill. Mr. Foreman, of Illinois, briefly 'opposed the bill. and at 10:30 the house ad- ■ juurned. , was any action it should be a readjustment aud consolidation of some smaller agencies.    . Air. Gorman said in the interests of the I oldiers congress might bankrupt the ; government and probably would, for in j fifteen years there would be more spent I for pensions than it bad cost to put down I the rebellion. In view of all this, econ- I omy should be practiced in the adminis- j tration pension office at least. Finally the discussion closed and Sher- I man's amendment was agreed to—°2 to 21.    ‘    I Air. Payne voted with the republicans j and Allison, Ingalls arid Plumb with the j democrats.

The cause of the generally blue color of the deep sea is accounted for by reference to certain principles connected with the science of optics. Probably most are aware that light consists of the set of colors which we see so beautifully displayed in the rainbow. Now, it is the law of light that, when it enters any body, and is either reflected or transmitted to the eye, a certain portion of it, consisting of more or less of its colors, is lost in the body; the remaining color being reflected, strikes our visual sense, and whatever color that may be, the object seems of that color. Now, it chances that the portion of light most apt to be reflected irom masses of transparent fluid is the blue, and hence it is that the air and the sea both appear of this color.— New York Commercial Advertiser.

States during the year 18*89 were quite satisfactory as to quantity. Although larger quantities of leaf have been exported in previous years, yet there is a material increase over tile year 188s. The exports of leaf tobacco for 1889 amounted to 252.509.G8l pounds, as compared with 204,184,021 pounds in 1888 an increase of 48,325,000 pounds, yet the value of the 1888 exports is put at $3 -’OOO more than the exports of 1889 something improbable; tiffs discrepancy is undoubtedly due to tile crude method of compiling these statistics.

The most novel plan of housekeeping for a large family ever knowr. in Washington is that adopted by Air. and AHs W. Fitzhugh Whitehouse, the former a son of the bishop. Mr. Whitehouse from choice rather than necessity, has leased for the season two good sized houses, the first on Billyer place, owned by the family of the late Francis Wharton, and the second in the neighborhood though around the corner, fronting on Connecticut avenue. There is. therefore no connection in any wav between fbi two.

VV ashing ton, Alay 9.—The annual ap- I propriation bill was taken up. the ques- ; turn being on tho amendment offered I yesterday by Sherman, increasing tin* I number of pension agents (at a salary of I §4.000) from eighteen to twenty. This i was agreed to—yeas 25. nays 19—a party vote. except that Payne voted aye aud Messrs. Ingalls, Allison. Plumb and loller no. Tile bill having been re- j ported back from tile committee of the whole to the senate the question of that amendment came up again for action. Air. Cockrell said he was humiliated at tie* fact that the committee on appropriations. headed by the distinguished senator from Iowa (Allison), had just been ridden over rough-shod bv the republican majority. There was no reason whatever for the increase of the two offices except for the benefit of the spoilsmen. Air. Sherman suggested that Cockrell was milking a very groat affair out of a *mall matter and argued for the increase diving the pension office at Columbus was so crowded now by the increase in pensioners it was absolutely necessary. Ile (Sherman) very seldom disputed with the committee on appropriations, but when the new question came up the committee ought not to feel offended that its work had been inquired into. Air. Cockrell referred to the rumor that there was a warm and lively contest over the Ohio pension agency, that a friend of an ex-president had been selected over the choice of another distinguished citizen (meaning Sherman) and that the senator who was so grievously disappointed wras patiently awaiting the creation of these two new offices. Air. Sherman said all this showed that Cockrell had been looking into small details about local matters which had no more connection with the amendment than the man in the moon. Mr. Allison said he felt aggrieved that the majority had voted for an increase of agencies. It shows the majority had not examined the question with the care it should. Mr. Paddock said there were localities worse off as regards the necessity for an increase of agencies than Ohio. He Orange Growing. The Oviedo (Fla.)

Berlin, Alay 9.-—TI10 assertion of the Hamburger Correspondent that imperial couriers have been kept busy during the last few days carrying letters between I rince Bismarck and the kaiser is generally received with incredulity. * lf, however, the allegation is true, it is surmised that the correspondence had strict reference to the statements the ex-chan-eellor is alleged to have made concerning Ins retirement, which have recently been published iii the HamburgerXachrickten It is assumed that the kaiser ha- demanded an explanation of th.* allegations he employed certain persons to intrigue against Bismarck with a view of getting rid of him, together with manv other statements uncomplimentary to the emperor which have found their wav into the newspapers as utterances of the exchancellor. The frequent interchange of communications induces the suspicion on the part of believers in this theory that the ex-chancellor is having a hard time to convince the kaiser of his innocence in the matter of circulating the statement, otherwise he is endeavoring to show justification for making them. The National Zcitung confirms the statement that Emperor William, before the retirement of Bismarck, questioned Dr. Schweninger regarding the chancellor s alleged habit of taking morphine. The emperor was assured, the paper says. that Bismarck only used the drug under tile advice and control of his medical adviser*;. A Waterloo Monument.
