STATE ASSESSORS' KEPORT. The annual report of the state assessors was submitted. The report says: There continues to be a marked depnscia- tion in tbe value of farm iands in nearly every county and the depression among farmers continues, while the prospect for improvement is not good. Many assert that after paying expenses they cunnot realize from their farms snfficrent to pay the inter- est on mortgages and consequently thousands of farms are falling into the hands of a mort- gagee. Of farm property in counties, in detail, the report says: is a steady falling off in the value of farm property. From 1886 to 1889 the value of the towns outside of Al- bany, Cohoes, "West Troy and Green Island fell off has considerably de- preciated in the last three years to the failure of oil lands and to the general de- preciatioii of farming lands. of Binghamton property has depreciated in value. is purely a farming county, and, like all of its class, values have steadily depreciated, while assessed values have been generally maintained.

WASHINGTON, March Morrill in- troduced in the senate yesterday an educa- tional bill, 11 hich is in substance the bill which passed the senate eight years ago with only six negative votes. The bill provides that all the money received from the sale of public lands, and three-fourths of the money received from the land grant railroads shall be set aside for an educational fund to bear interest at 4 per cent. One-half of this in- come is to be divided among the agricultural colleges until the sum paid to each shall equal annually, when the balance shall be turned in with the other half of the income to be used for general educational purposes This money is to be divided among the states and territories and the Dis- trict of Columbia for the purpose of main- taining a system of free schools, and the division for the first four years shall be on the of the proportion of illiterate per- sons between 10 and years of age to the whole population of each state, etc. After the first four years the division shall be equal. It is provided that the legislature of each state or territory shall accept the terms of the bill and that each state, etc.. shall main- tain a free common school system for at least three months in the year until Jan. 1, 1892. and for at least four months each year thereafter. There is to be no discrimination black and white in any one school, but different schools may be established, one for the black and the other for the white race. A system of reports to the commis- sioner of education is provided for on penalty of forfeiture of privileges. The act is to take effect on passage. THE WORLD'S FAIR HELD UNTIL NOT 1893.

Also an amendment providing th.it one of the member'; of the board created to be charged with the selection of the govern- ment exh.bit, shall be chosen by the fish com- mission. Adopted. Mr. Cancller expressed the satisfaction which he felt in being able to state that Chi- cago, which had been selected by the house as a site, had proved itself before the com- mittee equal to all that had been expected of it. The committee had found that Chicago not only comprehended the importance and magnitude of the enterprise, but had entered into it with a determined spirit which had impressed upon the committee the conviction that it would be successful in its undertak- ing. The committee was satisfied that Chi- cago had raised a bona fide subscription of and was also satisfied that Chicago had done more than had been expected from anv competing city in agreeing that the sub- scription should be raised to In order to meet the conservative element which did not favor the holding of fair the bill provided that tbe president should not his proclamation inviting foreign until he TS as satisfied that the was a bona fide one. Mr. Candltr then offered an amendment on his individual motion to be considered as pending, providing for the dedication of the bail-lings of the world's fair with appro- priate ccreiJ'.QEies Oct. 12. 1802; and further provMhig tLst the exposition shall be open to later than May 1, and shall clo.-e not later than Oct. 50, 1.0G. He said that this postponement was not asked by Chicago, but he thought it would insure to the benefit of the exhibitors w ho were to take pp.rt in tho exposition. In conclusion he said that he believed that the fair would be a grand advantage and benefit to every sec- tion of tb" country. Mr. Bel'k-n of New York said that New York b.a.1 accepted the decision of the house in regard to tl.e location of tbe world's fair great good fnith. But that did not pre- lit her representatives insisting that there sl.ould be in jorpoi ated in this bill safeguards- that mould pp-.-ure that in Chicago v, hieh Ne'.v York had expected to achieve. After the ?ite bad been selected, the Illinois members of ths special committee were asked 1 y tbe members from New York for the they had promised, and lo and behold y produced a paper marked exhibit A. first name on it was that of E.

The house then, after an unsuccessful effort to go into committee of the whole on the "Wyoming admission bill, at p. m.. adjourned. THK SENATE. WASHINGTON, March senate yes- terday further debated the Sherman anti- trust bill and the bill providing for a special investigation of the sealing industry of Alaska. The bill authorizing tbe investigation of the condition of the seal industry was de- bated at soaie length before it was agreed to, several senators holding that in the interest of economy it should not be passed. Resolutions were calling on the president for correspondence in regard to the La Abra award, and on the secretary of the Interior for information as to land patents issued to Indians under the severalty laws. Mr. IngalLs' amendment aiming at dealings in futures and options was agreed to. Mr. Coke then offered his amendment con- sisting of eight new sections to tbe bill, and. made a speech in support of it. He argued that the bills of Mr. Sherman and Mr. Reagan were unconstitutional and without a Mr. Reagan's amendment makes it unlaw- ful to create or carry out any restrictions in, trade: to limit production or to increase or reduce the price of merchandise or commodi- ties; to prevent competition in merchandise, produce or commodities; to fix a standard or figure whereby the price of any article or commodity, merchandise or produce intend- ed for sale, uss or consumption shall be in any way controlled; to create a monopoly in the manufacture, sale or transportation of any frrh article: cr to enter into any obligation by which they shall bind others or tkemsilves not to manu- facture, sell or transport any such article below a common standard figure; or by which they shall agree to keep such article for transportation at a fixed or graduated figure; or by which they shall settle the price of such article so as to preclude an un- restricted production. Mr. Coke moved to strike out all of tbe bill except the amend- ment of Mr. Ingalls or his own. yeas, 20; nays, 16. Mr. Stewart proposed an amendment, but pen-ling action on it the senate adjourned.
