Many properties within Tiro hours ride of London Are deserted.

In Many cases farms have been sold for less than one tenth of their value Twenty years ago. Well to do Farmers Are abandoning the business and going to the colonies or to the cities to Start life anew. Nor does there seem to be any hopeful Outlook for the Industry in the future. Lord Salisbury recently declined to receive a deputation of English Farmers baying that he knew As much about the wants of the agriculturalists As they could Tell him which was no doubt True and it is equally True that with the Best will in the world the government is powerless to Render them any material assistance although the situation is grievous there May be some Consolation in the fact that it is worse on the continent and seems to be equally irremediable we have not yet suffered so severely in this country but have by no Means escaped the depressing influences which seem to Nave fallen on agriculture every where.

J. Asker go s drus store. Washington letter. A Jan. 22, 1s97. The members of the Senate commit tee on foreign relations Rasdel it very Plain to Secretary Olney at the meeting of the committee that he attended up on the invitation of senator Sherawn now chairman of that committee and soon to succeed him at the head of the state department that neither prejudice nor desire to get even with the administration was playing any Pait in the consideration of the arbitration treaty that senators were Only after the fullest information about those sections of the treaty upon which More than one construction could be placed and when that information had been obtained the treaty would be dealt with according to its merits. The result of none of the senatorial contests More site fiction to re publicans in cons rss than he reelection of senator Pritchard of North Carolina. Was a double satisfaction. They were to see senator i Pri Tabard reelected because they thought he deserved of be and because it was a stinging defeat for senator Butler the Man who traded the popu list votes to Sewell and who has been posing As the biggest headed rooster in the populist barnyard and otherwise making a show of himself. This week has been almost entirely devoted to routine business in both branches of Congress excepting the time Given up to he Nicaragua canal Bill in the Senate. The Republican members of the House ways and Means committee Are sticking steadily to the hard task of preparing the Tariff hard this work really is there Are few who understand outside of those who have taken part in similar jobs is president Harrison sex attorney general Miller and sex vice president Morton were in Washington week but their unit has no political Signild a neither of them now it Lively in politics. The first two came in connection with a they Haj be fore the supreme court and the latter on business connected with his holdings of Washington real estate. A petition signed by Intro than two Hundred members of the House asking that time be Given for the consideration of 2u Bills on the Calendar providing for the election of Ruthc buildings in the various states was presented to speaker iced this week by a committee headed by representative Hicks of pair. Reed now has the matter under consideration. Although he candidly told the committee that he was personally opposed to appropriations of this nature while the annual deficit is and that be did not approve of passing Bills providing for Public buildings and leaving the approx nations to pay for them to be made by other congresses there is a possibility that he May Grant the request of the signers of the petition and set aside one or More Days for the consideration of these Bills. The Silver democrats arc already i weakening on their programme of pre venting the confirmation of the Nomi nation of Gold democrats for office Secretary Francis was con armed with out a division and the nominations of sex congressman for Ian who was the Gold democratic candidate for governor of Illinois to be commissioner of internal Lichen to and of William Crow Mcgreery to be collector of the first District of mo., have been favor ably reported and will probably be con firmed. Some of the Small Fry nominations will probably be permanently Hung up because they have nobody in i the Senate to make a Light for them the House committee on Public i lands spoiled some democratic stories by promptly reporting Back to the House the free Homstead Bill just As it was passed by the Senate. Chair Man Lacey presented a minority report favouring the exception of lands the government is Selling As trustee for indians. Senators will not discuss the Ware senatorial muddle for publication but it is a Good guess to say that or Kenney the Democrat who claims to have been elected to the Senate from i that state a few Days ago nil not be escorted to a seat in that body on the i Day he presents his credentials. Col Dupont thinks he has a prior claim on that s Jat and the committee on elections is now considering As to whether it shall report in favor of the reopening of col. Do font s claim. A senator who has t exactly made up his mind As to whether he will vote for or against the ratification of the arbitration treaty said speaking of it after All there arc two sides to this question.
