THE FREE LIST EXTENDED.

Washington, Nov. 28.—The newdein
ocratic tariff bill was given to the pul>-
lic to-day. Its provisions fulfill every
expectation of those who had predict-
ed that it would Is- a radical measure
of reform. In many respects it is a sur-
prise eveu to th * democratic me ill Iters
« f congress, as it is unprecedented in
many of its provisions.
The free list is of liberal scope suffi-
cient to satisfy the most radical advo-
cates of reform and the repudiation of
the principle of reciprocity, which lias
been the pride of the republicans and
the l ete noir of the democrats for a
number of years, is decisive and em-
phatic. In addition to the reforms it
makes in the customs laws, it will ne-
cessitate readjustment of treaties with
those South American countries which
enjoy practical or theoretical reciproc-
ity with the great American republic
of the northern hemisphere. The
bounty on sugar is to 1k repealed by
easy gradations and will not reach its
conclusive effect until after the end of
the present century.
It has heretofore U*en agreed that
ten days should 1m* allowed the repub-
lican members for undisturbed consid-
eration and at the expiration of that
period, when the bill is formally pre-
sented to the house, it is likely that the
minority will content itself with such
caustic comment as it may evolve for the
occasion and a proposal to continue the
McKfoley bill in operation.
The bill relates to the customs sched-
ules only. It has been the hope and
the purpose of the democratic members
to concurrently submit a comprehen-
sive scheme of internal taxation, the
necessary supplement of revision, but
while consideration of this branch of
the subject of taxation has progressed
sufficiently far to enable its presenta-
tion in general terms, the details are
yet to be arranged and will probably
be embodied in a separate bill or of-
fered as an amendment to the present
one at the appropriate time.
The general effect of the new bill is
apparent in the statement that it re-
duces the tariff tax of about *17! ,000,-
000 to about #115,000,000, being a net
reduction of about $58,000,000 or 88 per
cent. That represents the direct sav-
ings. Indirectly, the saving to con-
sumers will be an additional $350,000,*
000 calculation being effected on a
basis of six to one.
Most important additions have been
made to the free list. Wool, coal, iron,
lumber, salt and tin are among the
articles which make up the largest free
list consumers have ever known. Sil-
ver lead-bearing ores, in the free ad-
mission of Which Kansas City has a
large interest, are added to the sched-
ule of non-dutiable imports.
The following is the proposed free
list in detail:
On unil after March 1, I8J4, the following ar-
ticles will be added to the free list: Articles

Washington, Nov. —The annual
report of Mr. Joseph S. Miller, of West
Virginia, commissioner of internal rev-
enue, makes no recommendations.
The bulky volume of over i00 pages
(not including tables) is made up en-
tirely of statistical information. No
mention is made of income tax or in-
crease in the rate of taxation on dis-
tilled spirits, malt liquors, tobac-
co, or any other products coming
uudcr the scope of the internal
revenue laws. Assuming that the
rates of taxation will remain the
same, the commissioner estimates the
probable revenue from internal rev-
enue for next year ;it 9150,000,000 Tills
is $15,000,000 less than last year's esti
mate and 111,000,000 less than the
actual yield last year, which w as tlttl,*
000,000. There has been a decrease of
95,519,000 in the tlr^t three months of
this fiscal year.
For a number of years past the re
eeipts from internal revenue have run
along on the continuous upward slid-
ing scale, notwithstanding that during
the period noted several reductions in
rates and remissions of taxation have
been enacted. The receipts were $110,-

Ashland, Ky..Nov. 28. — General Man-
ager H. Greene, of the Norton iron
works, has arrived from Pittsburgh
with seventy-live puddlers and rollers
to take the places of the local strikers,
who are asking for the Amalgamated
association scale of $4.75 per ton. he
new comers were hired at a rate of 94.50
per ton with guarantee of six months
work. This rate was refused by local
men. Public feeling is greatly against
the company for this action, and a
mass meeting was hold at the council
chamber, in which both the home men
and the visitors participated. No
agreement was reached, but the strang-
ers were given to understand that
none of them would be allowed to
enter the ljiills at the rate
offered. Serious difficulty will cer-
tainly ensue if they attempt it.
There is considerable excitement and
some drinking. It is feared if a cut is
permitted here, 1 ronton, Portsmouth
and Covington mills will later suffer as
well; hence the vigorous kick.

Nkw Yokk, Nov. 28.—"If Carl Scliurz
ever seriously contemplated accepting
the offers made to hitu to accept civil
office under the German government,
he has now decided not to do so," said
one of his warmest friends in New
York recently. The rumors of Mr.
Schurz's permanent return to Germany
probably grew out of the announce-
ment that he was to be given a titular
dignity by one of the states of the em-
pire, owing to his activity in behalf of
German-Americans here. The honor
was declined by Mr. Sehurz in a grace-
ful note, as he pointed out that his
American citizenship was not compati-
ble with its acceptance.

Washington, Nov. 28.—The secre-
tary of agriculture, iu his report just
submitted to the president, regrets the
vague character of the department or-
gauization, which he says "offers opu-
lent opportunities for the exercise of
the most pronouneed paternalism," but
he adds that there are many proper
j ways in which the federal government
may legitimately serve the cause of
j Referring to the sum appropriated
for the use of state experiment sta-
I lions, he says: "This appropriation is
, unlike any other public moneys legis-
lated out of the treasury of the United
States liecause there is no officer of the
! I'nited States authorized to direct,
limit, control or audit its itemized ex
He suggests that the stations should
l e entirely divorced from the depart
( mcnt, and the sum appropriated
! charged directly to them, or that th
' secretary should have some power to
1 di'-eet and restrain their disburse-
| i tents so as to insure a legitimate ex
i penditure of ths same.
In reference to expenditures, the sec
| re tar v states that his strenuous en
deavor, in view of the depleted public
treasury and of the imperative de-
mands of tax-payers for economy in
the adminisoratiou of the government,
has been to "rationally reduce expen-
ditures by the elimination from the
pay rolls of all persons not needed for
an efficient conduct of the affairs of the
lie gives the number of employee
when he took charge as 2,407, and
states that there are now on the nay
rolls only 1,004, a reduction of 508; and
of the l.004 he says that eleven are on
duty in the office of the civil service
commission,- to which they were as-
signed by request of the commission.
He has, during the first quarter of
the fiscal year, reduced expenditures in
comparison with the corresponding
quarter of last year by over 950,000.
The classified service is defective,
largely owing to the inadequate com-
pensation with reference to the services
rendered. These inequalities he at-
tributes largely to the appropriation
acts making statutory provisions for
the clerical force. He argues the ap-
propriations should be made in gross
for the clerical force, and that full dis-
cretion should be given to the head of
the department in the matter of re-
muneration, affirming that "there can
be no good reason urged against the
government of the I'nited States secur-
ing efficient services in the same manner
that they are secured by the successful
business interests of the country."
The distribution of seeds at the pub-
lic expense is reviewed at length, and
its growth traced from the year 1889,
when Commissioner of Patents Ells-
worth obtained an appropriation of
$1,000 for the purpose of collecting and
distributing r re varieties of seeds and
for other purposes. He shows consider-
able saving to have been effected in the
purchase and distribution of the seed

THE NATIONAL TREASURY,
Washington, Nov. *.2H. — The treas-
urer of the Cnited States, Hon. D. N.
Morgan, has submitted to Secretary
Carlisle the annual report on the oper-
ations and condition of the treasury.
The net ordinary revenues for the
fiscal year were $885,819,628.78, an in-
crease of $30,881,844.54 over those of the
year before. The net ordinary expend-
itures were $383,477,554.49, an increase
of $38,454,623.91. There was, therefore,
a decrease of $7,572,779.87 in the surplus
revenues, reducing them to$2,341,674.29.
Including the public debt, the total re-
ceipts were $732,871,214.78, and the to-
tal expenditures $773,007,998.99.
At the end of September, 1888, the
treasury held $332,551,300 (rf gold, the
largest amount ever reported. The
largest amount of free gold ever held
was $218,818,253, in March of the same
year The lowest points touched since
then were $160,768,584 of total holdings
and $81,551,385 of free gold on October
19. In April, for the first time since
the gold reserve reached the sum of
$100,000,000, it fell below that figure,
and on the 14th of that month the issue
of gold certificates was suspended, as
required by law. The loss of gold was
caused partly by deficiencies in the
revenues, but chiefly by the presenta-
tion of legal tender notes for redemp-
tion in coin.
The amount of gold exported during
the fiscal year was the largest ever
taken out of the country or brought
iuto it in any like period, being up-
wards of $108,600,000, and it is noted
that $102,000,0(10 of it was drawn
out of the treasury by the presentation
of legal tender notes. Most of the gold
exported in former years was supplied
by the treasury in exchange for gold
certificates, and it is the first time that
any considerable stuns of notes have
been presented for the metul.
