THE CHINESE ENUMERATION BILL Ilnvlne Been DIsiiMcd by Amoiiclmentii, In Killed by Its Friends-McKlnley'fl Tariff Mill Is Froseiitud to tlio House- Confirmations-Appoint men tH. Washington, April 10.-The Montana election case was resumed and Mr. Gibson spoke in favor of the Democratic contestants. His opinion was that the majority and minority reports of the committee resed alike on a fundamental error. He maintained that neither legislature in Montana had a quorum. The credentials of Clark and Maginnis, the Democrats, ware imperfect and the credentials of Power and Sanders were no more entitled to consideration than if they were signed by a coroner or a justice of the peace. Senator Kenna contended tkat there hns never been an organized legislature in Montan<�. Ho recalltd a remark of Senator Sherman when the admission of Mr. Mahone as a senator from Virginia was before the seQate,to thu effect that "anything that will beat down that party and build up our own is justifiable in morals and in law," and reminded Republican senators that when they raped Montana, the youngest maid in the sisterhood of states and before maturity, they did it under the damning and damnable pretext that "anything that will beat down that party and build up our own is justifiable in morals and in law." As no other senator was prepared to speak on the resomtion the Chinese enumeration bill was taken up, Mr. Hale moved an amendment making the penalty for unauthorized Chinamen found in the United States imprisonment for one year instead of "for a term not exceeding five years," and it was adop ed. Mr, Wilson of Iowa offered an amendment that the act shall not be construed to interfere with Chinamen in transit across the United States under proper regulations, which was adopted. Senator Stewart then moved to lay the bill on the table, as he was satisiiel that with the amendment just adopted, the bill would do more harm than good. His motion was agreed to-yeas, 51; nays, 3-Senators Dolph and Morgan in the negative. The following bills were then taken from the calendar and passed: Appropriating $75 000 for a public building at Galesburg, Ills , and $' tlio liouse. It ra-peals all duty on sugai' bolow .he No, 16 standard, sind gives a bounty of 2 cents per pound on all sugar produced in this country from beots, sorghum or cane. Tlie report which accoraiianies the bill ostiniatea the reduction of the revenue bill at $(11,000,000 of tariff reduction, and $10,000,000 by internal revenue reduction. The bill is probably the same as . Iready reported, except that it gives free sugar and a bounty to produce free raw hides, and fixes the duty on binders' wire at 1^ cents per pound. The re-I^ort, which is very lengthy, argues in favor of protection for manufacturing plants. It quotes President Harrison's message in relation to the tariff, calls attention to the proposition to remove the sugar tariff, saying that the amount p aid for duty on sugar reported last year amounted to practically $1.00 for each person in the United States, It gives a good deal of attention to the clause relating to the tariff on wool, and says that under this proposition the 3rodu(!tion of all grades of wool cim be lad in the United States and the number of sheep in this country will be doubled in four years, Tlie report also calls attention to the f cct that no reduction in tariff' rttes on iron ore is made. Tlie Government's Flnanclal^Policy. Washington, April 17. - Secretary Wicidom, in a letter to Senator Plumb, thus outlines the financial policy of the government in the purchase of bonds: "The operations of this department have not been conducted with a view to controlling the finances of the country; but in pursuance of a flxetl policy to produce the least possible disturbance of the natural curr nt of events, the purpose of the secretary has been and is to pay out for bonds all tlij available surplus as rapidly as possible. In pursuance of this policy, and with a view to keep the money in circulation to the fullest extent practicable, purchases of bonds wore so freely made that on Jan. the available balance of public funds had been reduceil to less than $20,0 *0,-000, and this entire amount, as well as further sums amoun'ing to about $18.-000,000, were on d-iposit in national banks. From this it will be seen that the entire surplus and $18,000,000 in addition were in circulation. In view of this fact and of 1 rge disbursements to be made, it was not deemed prudent to draw further on the reserves in the treasury, and therefore the purchases of 4 per cent, bonds were temporarily suspended and g vernment purchases for a time confined t.i -1+ per cent, bonds. On the 6th of March, when purchases of * percent, bonds were resumed, the available surplus had reached about $E!9,000,000, tie whole of which was on deposit in national banks. The amount n w on deposit in national banks is about $3,000,000 more than the entire available sui plu'." Tlie Alert to iSii^Sent to Uolirins Sea. Washington, ^pril 16.-Orders have been i sued by Secretary 'Tracy to have the AIe�'t, now at the .Mare' Island navy yard, put in repair with a view to sending her to sea at once. The deitination of the Alert is the Behring sea, where she will cruise all sumriier and fall in protecting the seal fisheries of the United States. Thj Alert is bark rigged, carries four guns and about 100 men, and is of 1,000 tons displacement. She is a rapid mover and will be a valuable aid to the Pinta and the Thetis, This action ia sending three men-of-war to Behring sea, taken iu connection with the recenn proclamation of the president warning off trespassers, is regarded here as an evidence of a firm determination to prevent encroachment on American seal fisheries this summer; Each vessel will carry all the men she can so as to be. able to send to port any prize crews that may be captured, Anuivorsarr of ISmanoipatlon. Washington, April 17.-The colored citizens of Washington celebrated the twen'y-oighth anniversary of emancipation of the slaves in the District of Columbia, with a parade through the jrincipal streets of the city. Nearly a lundred colored military organizations and clubs of Washington, Baltimore and Alexandria, wore in line, and were reviewed in passing the White House by Presiddnt Harrison. There was speech making at Lincoln park in the afternoon, and a banquet at Washington hall in the evening. Ex-Senator B. K. Bruce presided at the Lincoln park meeting and short addresses were delivered by Prof, Langstoii, Robert P. Porter, A. M. Clapp and others. The Silver Question. Washington, April 17.-The members of the Republican senate and house caucus sub-committees on the silver auestiou were in conference nearly all le afternoon, but failed to reach an agreement. The only poim in dispute is whether certificates issued for silver bullion shall- be redeemable in silver bullion or silver coin at the option of the government, or � whether they shill be redeemed in lawful money of the Uited States alone, meaning any kind of money and onl.v such money >is is received for customs d ues and obligations to the government in general. Worsteds Are Not Woolens. New York, April 17,-The important test case of Ballin, Joseph & Co. against the collector of customs, to recover alleged excess of: duty, paid under protest on certain invoices uf worste 1 cloths, was decided in the United States circuit court, by a jury, in favor of the importers. Many i^inailar suits will now doubtless be pushed to an issue. The point was that the worsteds were classed by the collector as woolens. The jury finds that worsted are not woolens.. Beot Susar Machinery. Lincoln, Neb., April . 17.-The Missouri Pacific hrought in the ponderous machinery shipped from Europe for use in the manufacture of beet sugar at Grand Island, together with fifty tons of beet sugar seed.

Trouble Expected from European Workingmen, WILLIAM WILL USE THE PRES.S To Influence IJubllo Opinion-Bismarck's Silence-Gladstone Ilofors to Our I*ro-tectlre System as Barbarism-'Watching Americati Silver l,eg;isIation, London, April 17.-The present outlook throughout the continent for a peaceable observance of May Day is much better than it was a few days ago, though there is still a likelihood the day will be marked by disorder in some localities. In Germany the attitude of the working classes is less formidable than elsewhere, though there will, perhaps, be spasmodical attempti to create riots in the lower towns. The German workingmen are not by any means unanimous in fav.jr of a general demon-station on that day, but on the contrary, a large majority are opposed to any concerted movemgnt. In Austria, however, the sit uation is different, and it is almost certain that there will be trouble there, the reponsi-bility for which must rest upon the government. The weak submission of the authorities in the recent riots in Vienna, Pesth and other places has emboldened the workingmen to increase their demands, and given them confidence that they will be complied with. The feeling of the better classes against the government, arising from its neglect to summon the militia and promptly and effectively quell the disorders, is also increasing with their appreheusions that the authorities will again demonstrate their incompetency at i he expense of the law-abiding element, German Trades Unions, London, April 17,-The German trades unions are discussing the question of forming a joint central committee which shall possess the sole power of ordering > trikea, determining whether Buch movements are justifiable or feasible, conducting negotiations between employes and employers, and in fact assume the entire direction of labor movements. Upon this committee every trade will be represented, and its decisions are,by the terms of its creation, to be final.
