mysterious box last week containing The express officials refused to say where the money came from or for whom it was intended but thero is a welldefined suspicion that it was connected with the

New York chairman of the House Committee on Commerce today introduced a bill amend ing theInterstate Commerce Commission act and a number of its amendments were recommended in thecommissions re port

Fimding Bill GHICASOAKS ARE CAUGHT NAPPING The Worlds Fair Dates Determined Protest Against the Russian Extradition and Pensions Provided for Disabled Sol diers WASHINGTON March Francis Adams appeared before the House Com nittee OR Pacific Eailroads this morn md submitted a printed report of the agreement previously made by him He then discussed the Fryo bill That bill he said placed the Union Pacific and Central Pacific on very different relations to the Government as a matter of orinciple Tho Union Pacific could make no objection to that cause The Central never had uid never would Lave tho local trade which the Union Pacific possessed The question was whether the burden should be propor tionate to the strength of the companies He always maintained that in dealing with the Pacific railroads tho Government so far as the contract was concerned has divestea itself of its sovereignty and dealt with them as a banker or an individual would do The Government was justified in saying that the Union in view of its situation should bear a heavier burden than the Central Paciiio could bear without being crushed He did not object to the general provision of tho Fryebill nor insist that the Union Pacific should be placed on equal terms with the Central Pa cific Neither was he here to say that tho terms imposed on tho Central Pacific wore too lenient On the contrary he was obliged to say that the provisions of tho bill imposed us heavy a load as the Central Pa cilio could bear He did not think that tho Union Pacific would bo willing to take tho property of tho Central Pacific with a heavier load than the Frye bill imposed on it The Frye bill was a good and fair bill in many respects but there wore material points in which he would like to see it modi He was forced to the conclusion that tho burden which the Fryo bill imposed upon tho Union Pacific was too severe and heavy He did not think he would be willing to be responsible for the results of the future if tho conditions of that bill were imposed upon tho company especially at this time It was not in tho interest of the Government or the people that Union Pacific should cease from being a dividend paying stock and be come a speculative stock cease to bo an in vestment stock andbecome a Wall Street stock It is not in tho interest of the Gov ernment nor of tho Union that tho company should be launched on a long voy age of fifty years weighted down to the water line so that those who navigated the craft should spend half their time clinging to tbo rigging iiiorder to save themselves from every wave that swept over the deck Tho Frye bill loaded tho company down to the water line beyond whar he considered the limit of safety Adams said the Frye bill was in the inter est of the States through which the Union Pacific passed Although tho people of those States did not see had an idea that anything which helped the railroad injured themThis was an erroneous idea The company to get liberty was forced to the very limit ofsafety and attunes he had hesitated whether it was worth the com panys while to accept the provisions of the bill SNAP JUDGMENT ON CHICAGO At a meeting of the Worlds Fair Commit tee today in the absence of two members favorable to Chicago it was voted to fix the time of opening the fair for April 3rd 1802 and closing in October At a meeting to morrow an attempt will probably be made to reverse this action and fix the dedication for Oct 12 1802 and the regular opening for April 1893 THE WINDOW BILD AMENDMENTS Eleven members of the House Committee of Coinage Weights and Measures were pres ent today when the Wiudom Silver bill was again under under discussion The amend ment by Bartine providing for free coinage when tho price of silver reaches one dollar for grains pure silver was adopted Williams offered an amendment which was adopted striking out the section au thorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to temporarily stop the receipt of silver bullion at anytime when satisfied that through a combination or a speculative manipulation of the market the price of silver was arbitrary nominal or fictitious Tho motion of Bartine providing that the notes issued for silver bullion deposited shall be redeemed upon demand in lawful money was lost and a motion to reconsider was made which was pending when the hour of adjournment arrived The bill goes over until Monday MONEY FOR THE LEVEES Secretary Proctor has authorized the Mis sissippi Eiver Commission to oxpend for the immediate protection of the Morgan levee Louisiana reported in danger

against the ratification of the Russian treaty which the over Ingalls adverse ruling permitted Cockrell to present in open session today was presented from the Wood Work ing Machine Hands Union of St Loujs The reasons given for theprotest are thai the signers consider the ratification of the pending treaty would be a mistake because that state was without any regular system of justice A state in which an exile is transported without judicial process is a institution that can offer nc guarantee for an honest use of an extradi tion treaty i INGALLSS PENSION BILL Ingalls today introduced a bill providing that a soldier who has lost both eyes or one arm and one leg may get married at any time he may so desire to some one to tak care of him and at his death the soldier widow should receive 512

was confirmed as postmas er of East Portftiud Ore THE SOGAR TARIVP The Republican members of the Ways and Means committee have finally reached m grcemcnt upon the sugar schedule They igreed to make raw sugar from 16 Dutch tandard down dutiable at S5 per cent ad alorcm and refined sugar above 16 Dutch tandard dutiable at 10 per cent ad mtorcm This is equivalent to a 50 por cent roduc ion and on jnany grades the sugar to more hau 50 per cent and will reduce he revenue from twentyfive to wentyeight millions of dollars Thero no provision made for the payment any bounty whatever but the duty vhioli will be made Is more than two and a half times that proposed by the Mills bill ind the duty will be collected on the vjfcluo md not upon tho pound as heretofore The luty given to refiners is only 5 por cent nore than that given to raw sugar as Ifi or below will admit two grades of merchantable ugar fit for domestic uses It is hoped and believed that this will take away from the refiners tho power to raise the price of 3ugftr to consumers at will The Republicans regard this heavy reduc tion in the sugar duties as a most generous concession to tho Western The fixed is lower that tho rate fixed by the Senate Tariff bill and is moreover free rom the objection raised against tho Senate bill namely the bounty clause Tho Senate bill made a reduction of 50 per cent and gave a bounty of one cent a pound Thd action of the Republican members of the Ways and Means Committee makes a cut of more than 50 per cent and declines tho experiment of paying u bonus to one class of producers

include tba old Triangle fac tion tho Sullivan Boland Fccly crowd About forty of the old camps of tho Clan naGael will join the new organization and it is said a convention will soon bo called the purposes being to raise funds They pretend to bo more Irish 5n a revolu tionary sense than tho Irish themselves They charge that tho ClannaGael has out lived its usefulness that it has degenerated and adopted the wild constitutional meas ures of tho Land League school of politics Their high priests next to the Triumvirate are Tom Desmond Tom Bennehy and Tom Romayne The first Tom every Callfornian knows the second Tom takes care of No 1 and lives in Brooklyn He lives off the crumbs of politics The third Tom Is a and bas his home in this city Desmond is the only man of the crowd who has had pluck to beard the lion in bis den Years ago he was one of the Catalpa party that rescued the Irish political pris oners from the penal colony of Freemantle Australia For this he has earned the good will of the Irish people generally and the Irish revolutionary or national party He is a plain blunt man If fighting is to be done he will not be absent More cunnins and crafty Romayne and Dennehy alwaps remain under safe cover and both aspire to leadership So far they have confined their efforts u the twisting of the British lions tail by obtaining substi tutes to perform that hazardous
