Washington, .Ian 10. The senate
committee on appropr it ions yost r-
day authorized a favorable report on
the urgent deficiency bill, wlii -h has
been held in the committee since De-
cember 17. The bill, as it will re-
ported, will carry the provision for
the collection of ti- ine one tax. ;t id it
will not contain any n-iemlinents for
the alteration of the pr • enttariff law.
as at one time seemed probable it
would. It will be a plain appropria-
tion bill, and if it is anta oni/. 1 at all
it will l>e because of the income tax
appropriation. The total appropria-
tion made is 8L8ti3.0X), which i- a re-
duction of 8H3,.V.i.'( from the total of the
house bill. This reduction i< due to
the fact that separate bills weiv passed
before the holidays to meet the urg-
ency at the printing1 and census offices.
The passage of these bills reduced
the total to the extent of 8100,000. The
committee ad led appropriations
amounting- to $*,'50, *,).* . The principal
of these increases is$*.'00,000 for the im-
provement of the harbor at Galveston,
Tex., which was inserted at the re-
quest of the house -committee. There
is also an addition of 825,000 for the en-
forcement of the Chinese exclusion act.
The senate appropriations committee
also completed consideration of the ar-
my appropriation bill, and author)/. I
a favorable report upon it There were
several minor changes in the bill, but
the total is the same as provided by the
bill as it passed the hot^i 83 1
This is a reduction from the present
Appropriation, which is $23,259,884, and
from the estimates for the present

Washington, Jan. 10.—After let-tin r
the bills to open the Wichita reserv: -
tion and the Fort Sill country slumber
a year, the committee on Indian aff.ii: >
has suddenly manifested some intere t
in them. Representative Curtis, of
Kansas, on the sub-committee linv.n ;
in charge the bill opening the Wichita
lands, has been trying for months to
get consideration. Yesterday the com-
mittee indorsed his report and voted
to recommend the passage of the 1 ill.
At the same time it was decided to take
up the bill to open the Fort sill coun-
try, which is the reservation of the
Comanche, Kiowa and Apaches, next
Monday. There is every indication
that that bill will also receive a favor-
able report. These twe reservations
lie south of Oklahoma. When these
lands are apened there will b a con-
tinuous white settlement from Kansas
to Texas through the heart of what
was the Indiun territory.
the mileage ticket hill.
Washington, Jan. 10.—The senate
committee on interstate commerce ye -
tcrday authorized a favorable report
on the bill amending the interstate
commerce act so as to permit the issu-
ance of joint interchangeable ...00)-
mile tickets, with special privileges as
to the amount of free baggage that
may be carried under mileage tickets
of 1,000 miles or more. This is the bill
in which the commercial travelers are
especially interested, i.nd for whit 1
they have worked hard. It has passe 1
the pooling hill.
Washington. Jan. 10 The senate
committee on interstate commerce had
the house pooling bill under considera-
tion yesterday, an 1 postponed final
committee action until next Tuesday,
when the committee will meet "train.
The expressions were gen rally favor-
able to the bill, and the belief woe ex

London, Jan. 10. A meeting l i t
evening of the meat and cattle eel1 n
of the London chamber of iinineree
has served to bring out a storm of
abuse of American meats and Am i -
can business methods Referring t >
the cost of meat. Mr. Coopersa d: The
American has not to pay nearly so
much for the carriage of meat as the
Englishman. It costs less to bring
a ton of beef from New York to
London than it does to brin t e
same quantity from Aberdeen to
London. The native producer is
complaining that he is not on a
fair footing and that American capital-
ists, realizing this, are ma kin r eve ,
effort to control the Knglish mark t.
Wo, however, feel that they ought not
to be allowed to do so without a gie it
struggle. I maintain that if the trade
here sticks together they can bring the
American importer* to the old terras
because their moat must be sold."

Washington, Jan. 0.—The first busi-
ness called in the house to-day was a
resolution from the committee on rules
authorizing the appropriation com-
mittee to insert a clause in the
sundry service bill authorizing the
transfer of the military prison at
Fort Leavenworth, Kan., from the war
department to the department < f
justice. Opposition was made by Mr.
Ifroderiek, of Kansas, who asserted
that the question had been before the
military committee and contended that
the house was entitled to a report on
the proposed change for which he saw
no reason. After some further debate
the resolution was adopted—150 to 129.
The debate on the currency bill be-
ing resumed, Mr. Beltzhoover, of Penn-
sylvania, gave notice of an amend-
ment, proposing a section toenablethe
secretary of the treasury to fund the
treasury notes which moy remain
in circulation after August 1, 1895,
issued under the nets of February 25,
1805, July 11,1802, March 3,1863, and July
14. M> ). by issuing bonds to the amount
not exceeding $500,000,000, redeemable
at the pleasure of the United States
after five years, payable twenty-live
years from date, with interest at 3 per
cent., payable semi-annually in gold.
Mr. Sibley, of Pennsylvania, then be-
gan his address against the bill.

I Hon Hit Annual Report.
Jefferson City, Mo., Jan. 9.—Charles
Keys, director of the state geological
survey, has sent to Gov. Stone his bi-
ennial report. This states that in order
to show the natural resources of the
state it is imperatively necessary to
continue the survey. Two yeur.s
ago the state appropriated $40,-
000, but this sum will not be
necessary for the next two years. It
is also set forth that among the states
af the Mississippi valley Missouri ranks
first ir. the value of mineral products.
The report recommends an early ex-

well as building materials.

The failure to act on the per onuci
