Tax milk dealers of Philsdelphia have fixed upon tbe price of milk dnring tbe coming season.

Hilton is one of the moat pugnacious men in New York, and be is likely to press bis snic for all that it is worth.

The strike of tbe miners throughout the northern and middle Illinois coal fields was decided upon after midnight last night.

But It Is Terr Certain that It Cannot bo Passed by that Time, aad an Extension Will Probably be Agreed On-Certain Industries Dlitnrbed Over tho Prospect or Changes. ; - Washington, May-2.-A large number of inquiries bave been received by tbe Republican members of the Ways and Means Committee, respecting the date of tbe probable passage of tbe tariff bill for tbe beginning of its operations in July 1st next and from statements contained in these communications' it appears tbst the business of the country is in a very unsettled'! condition in anticipation of unloosed for' changes in tbe tariff. It is stated that tbe sugar trade in particular is depressed and disturbed. To these inquiries the reply is being' inzdo that the Senate cannot possibly pass tho bill finally before the first of July, which fact in' itself would necessitate a change in. the date" fixed in tbe bill, and the probabilities are that the change to.be made will provide that the bill shall not take effect bofore the begumug of the next calendar year, and possibly not until the first of July-, 1891. The committee was in session this morning trying to reach an uuderstandiug respecting the time to be allowed for consideration of the bill in the House. The Demorats wanted three weeks, at least two of there to be devoted to general debate, while tbe RepublicansBesired - to limit the general debate to one week, and tbe detailed consideration of the bill to another week. No agreement has yet been reached, and it may yet remain for the Committee on Rules to arrange the program. BASK  BALL RECORD. The Three Organizations and Their Standing to Data. . national league.
