   LeMars Sentinel (Newspaper) - April 8, 1890, Lemars, Iowa                                ABSTRACtS OF TITLE �.*l� e end of the week. Among those wlio have indicated their intention to speak are Senator Spooner, Senator Evarts, Senator Teller and Senator Ingalls on the Republican side, and Senators Vest. Vance, George, Turpie, and Jones of Arkansas on the Democratic side of the chamber. The elections contest will have fight-of way after 2 o'clock each day, but Mr. Hale will call up before that hour, probably on Tuesday, the house bill for the enumerati; u of Chinese, which he thinks will lead loo little debate. The bill has been amended in -the senate committee until very little of the original measure is left. It will probably go through the senate in this form and be deter ined finnlly in conference. : An effort will be made during the week to persuade the senate devote some time-probably a part to Bain & Ketcham LUMBER WAGONS, MARSEILLES AND ADAMS, Hand anilfower Sliellers and Feed Hills, SUr, ChanipioD and Adams i��iiid Wills. ^Ip^^'HBnd'and Underground Force Pump, �   BRASS CYLINDER POMP.

The pension ap propriation bill may be brought in and put on passage during the week. The Hfxise. Three contested election cases will be taken up and dispos d of by the house during Ihe wtek. In two of them the action of' the house can be forecast easily.. These are the cases of Bowen agaiD&t Buuhanaa, from Virginia, and Posey against Barrett, from Indiana, in each'Of which the membei's of the elec tion committee have united in favoring the sitting members, in each case a Democrat. Mr. Cheadle of Indiana -hapatidMatedau-intention to.,figlit.th^ committee in the Posey-Barrett case but his oppdsitiou will be ineffeotual Thursday has been set aside for the consideration of the contested case of WHddell against Wne, from the Third (Richmond) district ot Virginia. The case will develop a tliree-coruered fight in the house. The Republican members of the election committee have decided that Mr. Waddell, a Republican, was elected; Mr. Wise claims that he was e ected, while the Deni' cratic members of the election committee have decided that there was no election, and will bring in a resolution for holding a special election to de-tei'mme the matter. On Tuesday it is probable that the naval appropriation bill will be called up and so soon as it is disposed of the military academy appropriation bill will be considered. Friday as usual will be devoted to private bills, and Thursday eulogies in honor f the late Representative Laird of Nebraska, will be delivered. During the nio hinghoiirs | f the week a number of bills of an interesitiug nature will be 'called up for passage. Among-them are bills providing for the retiring ot naval officers for color blind ness; for the retirem- nt oV mates in the navy imU to prohibit the enlistment of unnaturaliiiea persons in the navy. Cliundler on Reciprocity. Washinuton,   April   7. - Senator Chandler says that the first information he had had on the subject of the proposition to establish reciprocity as aiii oflF-set to the proposed duty on hides was that .Which he obtained from reading the United Press dispatch on the subject.   "I have nut given the subject extended consideration," he said, "und I would not care lo pass judgm-nt upon it without   careful consideration.    1 should be inclined to say, although, that we could well afford to establish reciprocal relations wi h any of the countries of the Western Hemisphere which would adopt our tariff system   and scUed-ulcB.       I     am'     quite     inclin d to    believe    that    it    would     e wise    to    establisb   these   relations with all thecountrjes between the bor-deis of Canada and the Isthmua of Pau-ania.   It would not ba in any sense aq . abandonment of any part of our system of protection, and it would guar'utee to; us the almost exclusive trade of those countries.  In extending the boundaries of our tariff system along so much mo.re of coas' line, we would .of course liave to undertake the added responsibility of protecting ourselves from smuggling; ^DUt I am inclined to think that we would reup a great advantagd fiom the re- Geu. Rnnm's Arrangements for tlio Rapid Disposition of CIuiuiH, WasuiNijton, April 7.-Gen. Raum commissioner of pensions, submitted to Secretary Noble a report of the rapid progress recently made in adjudicating claims. Gen. Raum says: On the 28d of December last I issued an order requirii.g that an examination of the claims pending in the office should be made and that all cases which appeared to be complete should be placed upon what I deiiomiuated the "completed files." As a result of this examination 30,857 cases were placed upon tliis list, and the adjudicating div sions were required to spend five days in each wtek in their examination. Some days later I issued a further or der which provided that claims would be placed upon the "completed files" upon the application of the cl limants or theif attorneys, upon a proner state i.ent of facts showing that the cases were complete. Since the issuing of that order 25,850 cases have, upon motion, been placed upon the "complet d files," in all 511,207. Dur ng the past three mouths 52.229 of these cases have been acted upon, and there now remains but 3,978 cases on the "completed files," and applications at a rate, upon an .average, of 450 per day are received for placing cases upon i hese files. These orders also required that a day each week should be devoted by the adjudicating divisions exclusiv ly to making calls for additional evidence in pending claims. As a rosut of thi arrangement for the tra saotion of the business of the office, we are now sending out calls in about Hf y thousand cases per month and adjusting over sixteen thou'sand per month, 80 that we are actually handling about sixty-six thousand cases per month. During the month ju t ended lti,394 pension cevtiflcatt's were issued, being, as I find f om the records, the largest month's work ever performed by the bureau. Of these 8,183 were upon original appications. During the pas' five days ijj.iio certificates were issued, ot wliich 2,101 were originals. I take pleasure in i forming jrou that the business of the office is nowin such a condition that every claim placed upon the "completed fiU's" will be taken up and acted upon within the week following the day it is so placed upon the files. As the business is now arranged in the office, I will ba abe, by the last of May, to cause the examination of every claim pending in the office on the first day of January last and have every claim allowed that is completed. It is proper to statp that I now have a section in each adjudicating division for issuing orders for medical examination in all pending claims for increase of pension. These examinations when made will fix the date upon which the increase of pension will begin, where parties are entitled to increase, and in a very short time the work of ordering these examinations will dispose of the accumulated business, after which time the ^orders for exami ation ill new cases will be made from day to day as the cases are filed in the office. _______ CloHo-Mimthed Offlnhas.. . Washington, April 7.-The state department is like a clam. It is practically shut up. The officials who are csy of access are not at liberty to say anything for publication and Sei'retary Blaine, who is. is not to be seen, All efforts to find out anything about the recent or pending negotiations about the fisheries question, or the seal fishery quaaiion in Behring sea, or the reciprocity negotiations with South American republics, have been futile. The state department officials will not even admit that such negotiations are in progress. They have even gone so far as to refuse to affirm that Mr. Charles Tupner was in Washington, whoa he coud be seen any day at tlie Arlington hotel, from which he has made frequent visits to the residence of Secretary Blaine, half a square distant. In fact, but little or no information of public intere^-t s given out from the state department, and Secretary Blaine, who was the medium of communication between, the public and the secreta y, has lost in the tstimation of many of his warmest friends, much reputation by his secretive ess about affairs of which the public had a right to be informed.

The committee rose and an attempt was made bj( the Republicans to force a vote in Hhe house on the committee report.' This was resisted by the Democrats, and finally Speaker Hamilton ruled thdt tiie bill should go on the calenda,r. It may he reached before the close of the session or it may not, bu if it is reached there seems to be little question that it v ill be indefl-niiely postponed by the same vote as that by which thd committee disposed of it. Those who had expected the adoption of the bill by 5 the house are now ready to concede tliat they have smaU hopes of any change in the prohibitory law by the present legislature.
