Bat Opposition Will to IM Which Will Con- ItrvMtnen Thorehy. WASIUXGTOX, Dec. 13.-The House Cen- sus Committee agreed, at a meeting yesterday, to report the Apportionment bill as indorsed by the Republican mem- bers of the committee, fixing the sentation in the HOUM at 356. This is the number provided for in the bill in- troduced some time ago by Mr. Frank, of Missouri, and subsequently reintro- duced with amendments by Mr. Dun- nell, of Minnesota, the chairman of the Census Committee. The committee, be- fore agreeing to report the bill, dis- cussed it at Mr. Ilolnian, of In- diana. Democrat, opposed the repre- sentation provided for by the bill. He urged that it should be placed at 333. the membership of the present House. The agreement to report the bill favor- ably was practically unanimous, Messrs. Tillman, of South Carolina, and Hoi- man the right, however, to vote for amendments providing differ- ent apportionments. -Mr. Tillman fa- vors a representation of 500 or 000 mem- The report accompanying the bill be- gan with a list showing the representa- tion given each State under the bill and its increase over its present tion. From the aggregate population of the committee subtracted the aggregate population of the District of Columbia and the Territories of Ari- zona, New Mexico and Oklahoma, and with the remainder ratios were obtained by taking as a divisor any proposed number. Each number was taken from 83'2, the present membership of the House, to 875. Trials were made until a number was found that would give a' ratio which in application would secure each State against any loss in its mem- bership and in no instance leave a major 'raction. This number was found to be 356, making tbe ratio The num- )or of members obtained on even divi- sion was 339. The additional seventeen needed to make the number 356 was se- cured by giving another member to each of tbe States having left to It a major fraction. These States were Alabama, Califor- nia, Georgia, Indiana. Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Ver- mont, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia and Wis- consin. The fractions ranged from 871 in the case of Virginia, to the case of Iowa. The report says that the committee has not deemed the num- ber fixed by the bill an unreasonable increase in the membership of the House and tables are quoted to show that increases have been made by every apportionment act since 1789, except in that passed in 1843, when there was a reduction of fifteen. It is likely the bill will be considered and passed in the House next week and an effort will be made to call it up Mon- day, with an agreement that a vote shall be taken at a fixed hour on Tuesday. The action of the Democratic members of the Census Committee in voting to report the bill favorably would indicate that the opposition to the bill, if any is made, will be very slight. The Repub- lican members of the committee are con- fident that the bill will not bo opposed vigorously except by the New York City delegation.

Dun Weekly Review of Trade The business outlook is more hopeful. There have been numerous failures, and there is still much pressure, but the supply of money has so improved by treasury purchases of bonds and by shipments of gold from Europe that there is more ground for confidence and some actual improvement. Until after January 1 not much relief can be expected and followers of unwise legis- lation continue to cause much with- drawal of money from actual use, but for the present there is less pressure. The South reports fair business in spite of the continuing decline in cot- ton. The supply of money is ample for necessities at Now Orleans, but at other points money is tight, though banks help their customers as far as they can in legitimate business only. At the West colder weather has helped trade at Cincinnati. Detroit and some other points and business is only fair at Den- ver, with liberal distribution of goods at St. Louis. Chicago business contin ues much larger than last year, and re ceipts of most products show an in- crease. At Pittsburgh the worst is thought, to be over. Boston observes improved demand for leather at lower prices and retail dry goods active for seasonable products, but wool sales are small and wholesale trades generally quiet Philadelphia notes little im proT ment Iron production increased in Novem- ber, reaching tons December 1, a gain of nearly for the month and over compared with last year. Several new and large furnaces have gone into blast, but later dispatches show that within two weeks a number have stopped production and one South- ern establishment has failed. The woolen manufacture is doing decidedly better than a year ago. There is a wait- ing market for knit goods and a shrink- ing demand for dress goods. The cotton manufactare is less satisfactory am some works are suspending production. 8TAUY1NG Hardthipa Suffered by of Northern Alaska Because of tho Scarcity of Gaaae, SAX FRANCISCO, Pec.

Captain Healy will propose to the government that he purchase a number of reindeer of both sexes which abound on the Siberian coast and transport thorn on the Boar to some point on the Alaskan coast whore moss and feed are plentiful He will also advise that the Government enlist tbw services of a number of Siberian natives to instruct the Esquimaux in tho art of herding the iloer, and as the animals become moro lumerous they can bo distributed over northwestern Alaska and form the food -npply lor tho natives.
