A Table for 60 Cents, Foil black walnut. 10-inch marble top, just the thin*; that people have been looking for, is one of therapy attractions at HOUGHTON A DUT- The Executive Committee of the American Union Adopt Resolutions. Within the past week there has been considerable agitation going on among those interested in the New England fisheries over the prospect of the present Congress treating with Great Britain on the question of fisheries. Meetings have been held in Gloucester. Portland. Me., and other places, where fishing is an important industry, and committees were appointed to attend a meeting of the executive officers of the American Fishery Union, in Boston, yesterday. The meeting was held at the Parker House at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon. About twenty-five gentlemen were present, among whom were George Steele, Sylvania Smith. W. ii. Jordan. Captain Fitz J. Babson, ex-collector, all of Gloucester: Hon. Charles Levi Woodbury of Boston ; James Gifford, Provincetown , Owen B. Whitten, George Trefetliep, F. H. Smith, all of Boston. The meeting was strictly private, no reporters being admitted. . Previous to the meeting, Mr. Steele, who is president of the American Union, said in conversation: ’’Our position is just this, we don’t want any legislation whatever on this matter. We want it leu just at it is; hut if Congress must appoint a commission, we want a commission that will give exclusive attention to the fishery question.” Captain Babson, who was present, added: ‘‘Y'es; this is not a political question at all. It lies at the very foundation of all maritime affairs of living nations. It is the schoo.’ from whicii are recruited the men that sustain our navy." The meeting was an enthusiastic one, and lasted two hours and a h^f. Mr. Steele presided, and Mr. CumiingtflRii of Gloucester was secretary. About every one present expressed his views, and all were opposed to tim appointment of any commission to consider the making of a treaty with Great Britain, as had been suggested in the President’s message. As one more said: “There were but $10,000 worth of mackerel taken the past season within Hie three-mile limit of American fishermen." Tho following resolution was unanimously passed: Resolved, That we heartily concur in the views expressed by Hoi:. Richard S. Spolford, as published in tile Boston Traveller on tile 12th inst., relative to the past and present status of tile fisheries, and we cordially indorse his exposure and condemnation of the treatment tIris national industry recently received at the hands of Secretary Bayard In the adoption of tho measure at the instance of British ministers at Washington looking to the eventual free importation of British fish in the Dominion of Canada. Canadian Fisherman Indignant. St. John, December 14.—New Brunswick fishermen are deeply incensed at the illegal methods adopted by the American sardine fishermen iii the Bay of Bundy to obtain big hauls. It is claimed that the Americans have brought into requisition what is known as a torch seine, by means of which immense quantities of fish are caught at night. This is indirect contravention of the Canadian fishery Jaws, "'lie fishermen of Grand Menan, Deer Island and neighboring localities are getting up petitions to be laid before the Dominion government, praying that measures be adopted to put a stop to this illegal practice. The other night Inspector O’Brien gat e chase to one of tho offending fishermen, but he succeeded in escaping by running into Eastport. Unless the Americans abandon this method of fishing in Canadian waters it is feared that trouble will arise, as the Canadian fishermen feel that it is sufficient to allow the Americans to fish in their waters without using unlawful means. Pork Made Them Tear the Fence. Troy, N. Y., December 14.—This morning, E. A. Jones, residing on Ellsworth avenue, Mechanicsville, was discovered in his yard, acting as though insane. Ile was tearing the fence to pieces, and wildly gesticulating. His wife came running from the house and acting in the same manner. Neighbors quickly collected and endeavored to quiet them. It appears they had been eating largely of fresh pork and sausage, and the doctor who was called, pronounced it a case of trichinosis. The family, consisting of Jones, his wife and two children, are all sick. Maddened Liberals Adopt a Scheme To Discharge All Irish Workmen in Their Employ. The British Cabinet Votes Not to Resign. Gladstone Determined to Force the Fight Against the Tories. Plans Proposed by the Great Parties Regarding Ireland. London, December 14^-A movement was begun this afternoon winch involves probably the most astounding scheme of political revenge and proscription in the history of this generation. The movement grew out of a meeting at the National Liberal Club of those Liberal members-elect whoso minorities had been reduced by tho casting of tho Irish vote for tho Tories, and of those Liberal candidates for parliamentary seats who had been defeated by the same tactics. It was a very sore-headed assemblage, and great bitterness against the Irish was dis played in all tho speeches. Many of the speakers narrated how their own Irish workmen on farms and estates, and in mines and in factories, whom they had provided with sustenance in troublous times, agitated aud voted against their masters, the bread providers, at tho bidding of tho strangers. This allusion to strangers refers of course to the Parnellite manifesto, which was issued on the Saturday preceding the borough elections, and which exhorted all Irish electors in Great Britain to vote for Tories except in the cases of a few specified Radicals. Other speakers declared that it was easily proven by statistics and by every man’s own observation that the chief employers of Irish labor in Great Britain were Liberals. These were found all over tho lands among the great mine owners and iron masters of the Black country, tho great mill owners of Manchester and Lancaster, the great manufacturers of Birmingham, the great shipping merchants of Liverpool and Loudon aud the great shipbuilders of the Clyde and the Tweed. These great liberal proprietors had freely employed Irish artisans and laborers, and a considerable proportion of tho wages paid bv Liberal masters to the Irish had gone to strengthen the National League agitation Therefore, ttie speakers declared, it would be suicidal folly and madness to continue to nourish such vipers iii their bosoms. The result of the meeting was the adoption by a unanimous vote of a resolution pledging each gentleman present not to employ Irish labor in the future, and to gradually but as speedily as possible •' l>lich«riie AU Irish Workmen now employed by them. The advocates of this sweeping measure of proscription spoke of it as a boycotting scheme, ignoring the broad difference between proscribing a man for his nationality, which lie cannot help and would be a poltroon to conceal, and boycotting a man for voluntarily committing offensive ads which he has the power to discontinue at any moment. The speakers assured the meeting that Hie whole machinery of the Birmingham caucus would be employed to make the socalled boycotting effective. They said that the British Liberal workmen, who always had been friendly toward their Irish colleagues, were now embittered against them. Those workmen could therefore be relied on to cooperate with the employers against tile Irish, and would even carry the measure further by boycotting all Irish tradesmen and publicans. Mr. Gladstone’s proposed concessions to Parnell, if correctly stated by his close followers, ought certainly to satisfy tho home rule chieftain, for tho Tories will not go so far. is said, includes a sub-parliament sitting at Dublin, its members to be popularly elected, Ireland being districted for this purpose on the same lines laid out for tho elections of members to the British parliament. Tile body is to have jurisdiction iii all matters of municipal and provincial regulation, iucluuing railways, canals, markets, internal navigation, highways, poor laws, etc. Of course the purely national functions, such as of the army and navy, customs and excise, will be under Hie control of the government, and a clause that is sure to cause much disgust iii Ireland provides for the retention of the powers of the government police who are the objects of the most intense hatred and suspicion among Die Irish masses. Mr. Parnell’s support of the measures as a whole is nevertheless confidently looked for. It is learned on excellent authority that Mr. Gladstone has definitely rejected the moderate counsels of most of his colleagues and is determined to force the fighting against the Tories at the very threshold of the new Parliament. lie will do this by moving a vote of Want of confidence in the government 011 the first day of tho session. He expects to be able to arrange matters with the Parneliites so as to have a majority sufficient to unseat tile Tories, even though there may be some Whig defections from his own ranks. The members of Mr. Gladstone’s late cabinet are greatly divided in their view's as to the wisdom of this programme. Lords Hartington and Silencer, who are stalwart Whigs, oppose it. Messrs. Trevelyan and Goschen are hesitating between two opinions, hut will probably fall into line. Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Approve* the Scheme, but it was thought that the only really hearty approbation it receives is from the Radical leaders. Joseph Chamberlain aud Sir Charles Dilke. Sir Charles, however, in a speech at Chelsea tonight, said that the Radicals would not obstruct, hut would endeavor to shape the Tory policy. Ho thought it was a mistake to occupy Dongola and to expend.more blood and treasure on the hopeless task of holding the Soudan. If sufficient pledges are given to Parnell to bring his phalanx to Gladstone’ssupport, and ii the Whigs, as a rule, stick to him. Gladstone can oust the 'lories, resume office himself, and retain it during Hie pleasure of the Parneliites. If tho Whigs desert to the Tory ranks in any considera ble numbers a dead-lock is certain. Iii tim case tlie leaders will probably agree to confine legislation to passing the estimates and to dissolve Parliament at the beginning of summer. The cabinet formally decided this afternoon to make no overtures to Parnell, aud to have 110 further dalliance witli his Party. Tile most important cabinet conned! yet held by the present ministry assembled today in ^he premier’s official residence in Downing street. All the members were present, including the Earl of Carnarvon. the lord lieutenant of Ireland, who came over from Dublin expressly to attend The session lasted two and a half hours, which is five times as long as the council usually sits. There was a long and very serious debate upon the question of resigning office, in view of the fact the Tories had failed to elect a majority of the whole House of Commons. A majority of the ministers opposed the proposition of resigning. They took the ground that, although they had not elected a clear majority of the House, yet neither the Whigs, the Radicals nor the Parneliites had done so, and therefore it was shown that the country had not given a mandate to eitiier of ttyese parties to administer the government. It was argued that the Tories were numerically stronger than any one of the other parties, and moreover the ministers were confident In the belief that the Whigs would support the present government, thus giving it an ample working majority in the House. This view dually prevailed and tho Motion to Resign VV ii* I,nut by a majority of two lo one. The cabinet then decided to meet the new Parliament, and to submit a comprehensive programme of legislation for tho session. This will include a now scheme of county government iii England, and a bill to reform aud decentralize tho administration of local affairs in Ireland. The details of the latter measure were not fully decided upon, aud tho Council will reassemble tomorrow, mainly for that purpose. Tho pronosod bill is a limited measure of homo rule, but it falls far short of what the Parneliites demand, and of what, tho Liberals have offered. ANR STILL THEY DON’T KNOW. Conflict inn Report* Keep the llulknu Matter Ktill iii Doubt. London, December 14. Such conflicting reports are received of Saturday’s fighting between Bulgarians and Servians on the frontier that no attempt is made by those interested in the situation to estimate tho effect that the engagement will have upon tho negotiations for Hie settlement of tho dispute. Tho first reports may have exaggerated the importance of the engagement, as it seems likely that otherwise some additional particulars would, ere this, have been received. Tho report emanated from Belgrade, and of course declared the Servians to have been victorious. Tho Bulgarian side of the story is yet to be heard. No hint of a consummation of the labors of tho ambassadors’ conference is yet received, and there seems no present prospect for a speedy settlement of the conflicting interests. ALEXANDER SAYS PRACK. Ile Decide* to Kocumilxo the Roumelian Cnnmii«Nlon. Sofia, December 14. Prince Alexander at Pirot has since Saturday been in an almost continuous conference with the Turkish envoy and Lascelles, tho English agent, over tilesettlementof tho Roumelian question. Constant communications have been kept up with Said Pasha, tho foreign minister at Constantinople, and this morning it is officially announced that Prince Alexander has decided to recognize the ltoumclian commission. The conditions of the agreement are understood to ho the somi-independence of Roumelia, the garrisoning of l’hilippo-polis by national troops as a guarantee of good faith on Turkey’s part and the recognition of Prince Alexander as the executive head of the now Roumelian government, of course under the direct suzerainty of the Sultan. Turkey is allowed the possession of the Balkans and tho right of free passage across tile country at any time lur the proper defence of tho frontier. The news gives groat satisfaction here. Tile army still remains entrenched along the Timoc river, and is busily engaged in strengthening its natural strong position. 'Die defences of Mustapha Palanka are beinly enlarged. The Servian army is still at Nissa working on the fortifications. A Philipoppolis despatch received this afternoon states that Mahjid Pasha lias left Ailrianople for that city, and preparations are being made to receive him with military honors. Will Let Them Wear Themselves Out. London, December 14.—The attention of England is again directed toward Egypt, whence news comes today of a sanguinary conflict at Kosch, tho natives being repulsed by tho British only after a sovereaud protracted tight. In an interview this evening a prominent military man expressed the belief that tho policy of the government would be to let the fanatical Arabs wear out their strength by dashing themselves against the coinpari-tively strong positions of tho British and Egyptians near lower Egypt, rather than attempt to drive them hack or pursue them in the desert.

O no HI I ii ft* ICilliMl and Several Seriously Injured ut \Vi1k<*»l»urre« Prim. Wilkes ba it re, Penn., December 14.—A frightful explosion of gas took place this morning in the Mill Creek mine, operated by tho Delaware ana Hudson Coal Company at Plains, a few miles from this city. At the time of the accident there were about IOO miners, laborers and boys in the slope. Tho news spread quickly and tho entire population soon seemed to have gathered ahunt the colliery. The explosion occurred in what is known as No. 12 lift, which is located at tho extreme cml of the opening of the slope, being 4000 feet from tho mouth, and, therefore, its ventilation was a difficult problem. Tile gas had ignited in a breast, where a miner named Coffey was at work. An exploring party of about twenty minors entered the slope as soon as tho news of tho disaster reached the surface. It was quickly discovered that many of Ute men were burned, an i the explorers at once began removing them. Among those seriously injured were George Martin. John Cleasby, Nicholas Gray, Peter Coffey, Samuel Morris, Joseph Parduski and Peter Stone. Subsequent to his removal from the slope. Martin died from the effects of his injuries. Many others wero slightly injured by Hying pieces of coal and wood, anil being violently thrown against the pillars of coal. Tho explosion could not have been avoided. Rain has Leon falling iii this vicinity for tho past twenty-four hours, and under such a heavy atmosphere tho gas is generally more rapidly generated in the mines and slopes than during pleasant weather. Tho host of tiro bosses, under such circumstances, has no control over tho accumulation of gas. PITT SF I ELD’3 POST OFFICE. Prospect of tho Eir*t Contest Over it Shire the War. Concord, N. II., December 14.—The post office at Pittsfield, in this State, is a presidential one, and has been hold nearly all the time since the war by Everett Jenkins, the present incumbent, .Soon after tile inauguration of President Cleveland the Democrats of the town began to look around for one of their number to fill the place. There wero four prominent candidates—George N. Foss, the present member of the Legislature from tho town: Edw ard K. Webster, deputy sheriff; Johu M. Tucker and Frank E. Randall. It has been generally understood among tho best, informed men of tho party that Foss stood tim best chance of securing the place, but as yet no change hits been made. Saturday evening a preliminary caucus of tho Democrats wa*, Iwdd in tho Tuwn Hall. Messrs. Webster and Foss refused to have anything to do with the caucus, but tlie friends of the other candidates rallied in force, and tho result was tho largest caucus ever held in the town. Randall, on tho eighth ballot, received one more than a majority of all tho votes cast, and was then declared tho unanimous choice of the Democrats of the town tor tho office. In tlie meantime a petition has been prepared aud signed by many veterans of the town and forwarded to Washington, stating that the present incant bent is a crippled soldier: that he is honest and efficient, and gives general satisfaction. Continuing, it says that if a change is to be made .tho signers believe tho old soldiers should he recognized, and they unite in urging tho appointment of John A. Cutler, a veteran and well-known citizen, who has not been a candidate for the cilice. THE WEATHER. Washington.

Tho Minnesota cold wave has advanced eastward, and last night was over tho lakes. It will reach New England tonight. The cold will continuo until Thursday,when warmer weather, accompanied by falling barometer, will be experienced. The high barometer noticed on tho northern Pacific coast is undoubtedly the precursor of another cold wavy, whose influence will bo experienced in the Eastern States towards the latter end of the week.

Secretary Bayard to Austro-Hungary and Italy. The Presidential SiHceesston Bill Dis* cussed iii the Senate. Randall Talks About the Revision of the Rules, Washington, December 14 --Tho President, sent to tho Senate today all tho corr*?-spun dem o in the Kelley 1 ase. It shows at tho outset that Mr. Kuliev tuts appointed as munster to Italy and confirmed April 2. lsso, and that he resigned on tho 28th of the same month, and that on the 29th of April he was appointed minister to Austria-Hungary. Concerning Mr. Kelley’s appointment to Route the correspondence shows that Secretary Bayard, writing to Baron Ka va, the italian minister at Washington, said; ll! selecting Mr. Kelley ii* envoy extraordinary and minister ptoiiipotetitiaiy to linty, tut* gov eminent im* lamplit lit fugit tis honorable amt amicable duty towards the government you represent, and cannot euler Into discussion in respect to it* action. Baton Ka va to Secretary Bayard, under date of April 20, after melting al. length the deep sympathies existing iii Italy towards the United States, appealed to tho President through the secret ary to bestow on Italy ‘a now pron! tit sincere amity in appointing another candidate.’ ” On April 30, Mr. Bayard writing lo Baron Fava, referred to tho se ti tune Hts of the Italian government in relation to Air. Keiloy’s appointment, as having growing out of his utterances in Richmond in 1871 anil said: These expression*, made *0 loug ago. are e slitured by Slg.

I recognize tho full ami independent right ol your king to decide this question of per son*) acceptability lo Iii tit ut un envoy of tin government. In tho samo letter Secretary Bayard notified Baron Fava that Mr. Kelley had returned to the President his commission as minister to Italy. Tile correspondence relating to Mr Koiley’s appointment to Vienna and his rejection bv the Austrian government appears to have been more spirited than that with Italy. Secretary Bayard, on Alay 4, informed Baron Von Schaefer, tho Austrian minister at W ashington, of Mr. Koiley’s appointment, and on the 9th that gentleman called on tho secretary of state and read telegram from Count Kalnoky, objecting to Mr. Kelley because he was “wedded to a Jewess.” Secretary Bayard, on tho 18th of May, in in replying to this, said.

Later, Secretary Bayard requested Mr. Kelley to remain at Parts until he received by mail letters from tho Austrian ai mister of foreign affairs sent to Secretary Bayard objecting to hint and intimating social ostracism if ho proceeded to Vienna. After some further correspondence Count Kalnoky informed Secretary Bayard that the real 1 ease ti for Air. Ketley’s rejection was the fact “that, Italy would not receive him. and that his domestic relations preclude that reception of him by Vienna society which we judge desirable for a representative of tho United States.” Mr. Kelley was recalled on August 5, as Austria bad finally refused to receive him, for the reasons before stated. Mr. Kelley at once returned to tho United States, arriving in New York on the 26th of August, and the next day proceeded to Washington, boing advised by Secretary Bayard that it was not the design ol tho government to recall him, but to leave hint free to pursue such course as his own judgment might indicate appropriates. Ho said that the course was entirely clear. “I .cannot consent to accept the compensation of an office without discharging my duties." tie wrote, “and I, therefore, hereby return to iho President the commission with which he was pleased to honor me, and beg that you will at tho earliest moment lay this communication before him. In the communication here alluded lo Mr. Keily asks official considerations of tho fact connected with his rejection as minister to Austria. Secretary Bayard, replying to this, took occasion to say: The President, and those who are associated la hi* counsel, are completely satisfied will! your attitude aint action throughout this remarkable episode Iii our diplomatic history, amt we deeply regret that tile country tun beeu prevented by tho unprecedented and Intolerant    action    of the Austro- Hungarian government front having the advantage of your personal presence ut Vienna, and of vour services as a competent aud worthy representative of the interests and honor of tho American people amt their government. The Incident of the government of Austin Hungary refusing to receive you us Hie envoy of the United    .states    upon the ground alleged is destined. I behove, to have important consequences. I wilt not believe that the people of ttie United ’States will ever consent to the creation    or enforcement of such testa as have    been    Insisted upon by tho government. of Austro-Hungary as conditions precedent and qualifications for tho selection of their representatives Iii foreign courts by the United States. Such action must naturally awaken widespread amazement, coupled with indignation and resentment, when the history of the case is made public; nor do I believe that these sentiments will be confined to our country. AHOLT TUE MVCOESHIOY. Connecticut People Much Interested in the New Hill. Washington, December 14.—In the Senate today. Mr. Platt of Connecticut presented a joint resolution of tho Legislature of that .State, urging the passage by Congress of a presidential succession bill. Mr. Platt said tho people of Ins State felt much interest in the matter, and that the Governor had requested Ii im to bring the matter to tho attention of the Senate. Mr. Hoar intimated that the State of Connecticut was responsible for the failure, in tho House, of the Senate Bi 11 dining tho last session. Ho said a distinguished representative of that State,having been chairman et tho conference committee, tailed to report to tho House until so late tit the session that tlie report was not acted upon. Mr. Platt did not agree with the views of the senator from Massachusetts. Air. Hoar reported favorably from tlie committee on privileges and elections an original bill providing for presidential succession (substantially the same bill which passed the Senate last year), and gave notice that he would call it up for consideration tomorrow. Upon a suggestion by Mr. Edmunds, Air. Hoar agreed    that the hill should lay over for a day in order that Mr. Edmunds might have an opportunity to attach to it an amendment regulating the count of the presidential vote. On motion of Mr. Allison tho membership of the committee on appropriations was increased to ten, and tile chair appointed Mr. Logan as an additional member. Mr. bewall, at his own request, was relieved of the chairmanship of the committee on military affairs, anil Mr. Logan was appointed to that position. Mr. Harrison gave notice that at the first opportunity he would introduce a bill providing for the admission of southern Dakota as a State of the Union./ Mr. Sherman (president pro tempore) was at his own request relieved from service on the committee on privileges and elections and the committee on the library. Mr. Sewall was by the chair appointed chairman of the committee on the library, and a member of the committee on privileges aud elections.

At 1.30 p.m. the Senate went into executive session, and at 2.20 the doors wero reopened and a message was received from the President transmitting the Kelley correspondence recently called for by Mr. Vest’s resolution. Tho correspondence was ordered printed and to lie 011 the table. The Senate then, at 2.25 p. rn., adjourned. No Trouble with the Drolomats. Washington, December 14.—Secretary Bayard, speaking today of the diplomatic appointments, said that he did not anticipate any opposition from the Repub lic said, inchnf^ig the confirmation made at tho special sessions of tho Senate, there were in all about thirty-five diplomatic appointments. Tho mission to Siam had not yet been filled, and the Austrian mission was vacant for reasons which Were well known. Tho personnel of the appointments was unexceptionable, and in tho distribution of the appointments every section of tho country had been thoroughly recognized. Now England had received two diplomatic appointments, one of which, ttie mission to Great Britain, was the most, important of all. The Middle States, New York had two and new Jersey one. In ilia Northwest, Indiana hail been given three appointments, < Milo two. Illinois two. Michigan one, and so On. An appointment had been given to most of the Southern States, Maryland and Virginia receiving lite missions to Franco anti Spain, while tho others given to the South were of secondary importance. He could not say at this time what would bo done alxntt lite Austrian mission. KKYIHIKQ THE RIT LES. The Weaver'* lint11,' to llrgin Today I.nlioi' ti ii ii'ii ii intl. Washington, December t i.-—Tho House was in session only half an hour today. An attempt was made to secure tho adoption of a resolution under which the introduction of bills is referred to committees when appointed, but tho sense of tho House was against this proposition. Those who are interested in legislation naturally wish to know tho complexion of the committees before moving a reference of hills to them. The report of the committee on rules was submitted by Mr.Morri-oii.and Representative Randall gave notice that he would present a minority report. Both reports will be printed tomorrow, aud tho battle over the revision of tim rules will bourn. Att attempt was made today on tho Republican side of the chamber to draw iqi a vote in opposition to the plan for distributing the work of appropriation ciiintnittecs. This movement is lead by some gentlemen who were opposed to the nomination of Mr. Rood as the Republican candidate for speaker, and who also look with disfavor upon his being placed ut! tho committee on rules by Speaker Uar-lisle. Tito gentlemen who have been quietly engineering this scheme to cause that part of Air. Morrison’s plan to he rejected. are iii favor of all the other changes proposed bv bito ami reported upon favorably by the committee. Mr. Randall, iii submitting It is views in opposition to tho report of tho other four members of tho committee directs special attention to Mr. Morrison's proposition to distribute appropriation bills to various committees. Such distribution of the labors of tho committee on appropriations he declares is without example iii any enlightened legislative tiody in this country or in Europe. Before tho war ho says tho committee of ways and means prepared and reported the, necessary appropriation hills to executo the laws and carry on the government, and also arranged tho taxes requisite to provide income sufficient to meet tho proposed expenditures. Those who were for lessening taxes of course favored economical expenditures, and those who were not favored tho largest, appro-prietions. Instead of returning to tho old system. Mr. Randall says, it is proposed still further to separate these closely related and inter-dependent subjects. General appropriation bills are to bo still further divided aud scattered and the result inevitably will be that it will lie impossible to keep up atty just relations between receipts and expenditures. Experience and observation demonstrate that such distribution leads lo continually increasing appropriations aud renders it more difficult lo keep expenditures within tho limits of receipts. The best interests of tho people, iii the opinion of Mr. Randall, require that ttie subject of appropriations should be mainly committed to the charge of one committee. Mr. Randall believes also. as it is unadvised alleged, that the duties of the appropriation committee are more than tho present n urn lier of that committee can manage tho remedy naturally would bo to increase tile number. But such is not the proposition. On the contrary, it. is proposed to distribute tho wark of that committee in sm it a way as to make it practically impossible to secure anything like harmony of action and unitv of purpose iii making tho general appropriation hills. Should tho proposition to distribute the appropriations aud the work of the appropriations committee be divided among other committees and added to their present duties, the extinction of tile provisions committee, in the judgment of Mr, Randall is not (ar distant and when appropriations shall have beeu withdrawn from tho consideration and control of one commissioner, and no longer kent within due order and subordination to each other, and to the burdens of taxation imposed on the people, and those several committees are launched out into uiirostained freedom of appropriations each striving to surpass tho other in greater recognition and larger appropriations for its special charge, it will not he ditticult prophesy that the day of wasteful extravagance and all its attendant corruptions is near at hand. in conclusion, Mr. Randall quotes copiously the views expressed by eminent members of the House in years past in the discussions which have arisen on the proposition to distribute appropriation bills. Entitled to investigation. Washington, December 14.—Tho secretary of the interior, til response to an inquiry from tho commissioner of Indian affairs, to whom the claims for Indian depredations wero referred, decided that any such claim is entitled to investigation, which originated since tho law repealing lite three yearn’ limitation of 1834 w ent into operation; or if it originated before that time it must have been presented three years after tim commission of tho injury which constitutes the basis of the claim. There are about 40,000 of these claims, roprosent-some $10,000,000 of property belonging to citizens destroyed by Indians since 1834. They will now bo investigated by tho Indian dureau through its agents in the field, and reported back to Congress for an appropria-lion. Thomas’ Name Held Back. Washington, Decent tier 14.—The name of Marion Thomas of Baltimore for Indian inspector was not sent to the Senate today by tho I’residont with the other nominations for Indian inspectors. Thomas’ name was, however, sent to tlie White House from tho Interior Department The reform Democrats of Maryland have made a strung fight against, this appointment on the grounds that Thomas is a machine Democrat. Ile is on duty now in the West. Thomas was mentioned in connection with Mr. Higgins in the New York Republican platform as an instance of tho abuse of the appointing power under Ute present administration.    _ Legislation for Yachtsmen.
