Concerning tne measure, jir. Diana savs: "The main idea of it is to convert all our money Into coin and win notes instead of silver certificates and national national bank notes, and also to secure the free coinage of gold and sliver." " rREAr, . 18. 1694. ) Thb PiCATtrwe'S Bureau, 1427 v eireet. Washington. U. C lo. The civil service commission has discovered discovered instances of violation of the civil service law In the custom-bouse custom-bouse custom-bouse and post office at New Orleans, which the commissioners have called to the attention of the secretary of the treasury and the postmaster general. One of the alleged infractions of the law was the removal of a clerk in the post office, a Mr. McFarland, who occupied a position excepted from the Ivil service rules tip to Nov. 2, when, rjy executive order, the place came tinier the rules. It was claimed in the explanation of the removal removal that McFarland had agreed before his place came under the civil . service that he would consent to removal. The commissioners reported tho case to. the postmaster general," who- who- bas' ordered: tna reinstatement of McFarland. -"' -"' The other case Is that of an Inspector In the customs service. Cp to Nov. 2, or about that time, inspectors and other employes of a certain-kind, certain-kind, certain-kind, whose salaries salaries were tinder $900, were outside of the classified service, and the places could be tilled without regard to the civil service rules; but since thai date the positions have been in the classified category, and the commissioners have informed informed the secretary of the treasury that appointments made in the customs service to positions of the kind mentioned since the order putting them in the classified service was issued are illegal. A ruling of the commission .in the' matter of Revenue Collector Johnson, or Louisville, is similar to that of the New Orleans post ofllco eae. Johnson claimed that he had secured before the prcsiden-ti.-il prcsiden-ti.-il prcsiden-ti.-il prcsiden-ti.-il prcsiden-ti.-il order putting certain of his employes u ider the civil service the promise "of their resignations, and after the order came out he filled their, places. This action was declared illegal by the commission, commission, and they held the appointments could be made only under the regulations. regulations. ' Currency Legislation. The proposed currency legislation occn pled the bouse to-day, to-day, to-day, but 'did not excite much interest. More opposition to the Carlisle bill is developing, and it will be considerably changed before it can pass. The senate had up the subjects of clo ture aud the Nicaragua canal. Mr. Hill made a forcible argument in favor of a rule to close debates, and Mr. Turpie resumed his speech in opposition to the Nicaragua canal bill. Air. Vest watched for an opportunity to call mi the mu?r bill again, but none presented Itself. He expresses confidence that the next time tho motion is made enough votes wi'.l be secured to take up the bill. He expects o receive assistance from several KepuDlican senators wuu, ihn nttioi- nttioi- tav trofed with their party against considering the bill, but who wish to have it brought before the senate. It is thought that in the event of a failure of congress to repeal the one-tenth one-tenth one-tenth retaliatory duty on sugar, the president will either recommend a new treaty with Germany or be forced to adopt a policy of retaliation for the discriminating legislation legislation of that country against American in kH i !jt u Kcta.iatlon against Spain may also have i l.n ..iniitul miii t has been announced that Minister Taylor has called npon the Spanish government, under uthority of secretary i.resnam, 10 mimnj which shuts out American imports from f'nh A section in an act of Aug. 30, 18!)0, has been discovered which invents the president president with power to exclude from the United States import f,n countries which may make unjust discriminations against the importation or naic ui &uii-ii' &uii-ii' &uii-ii' chu nrnilr.ntB. Mr. Turpie's speech . criticising the Nicaragua!! cnual bin is directed rather to the measure now before the senate than to tho project Itself, of which he declared himself an advocate.

Representative Aitkin, of Michigan, proposes urging a vigorous warfare against certain lawyers of Washington, who are charging 25 per cent commission on the sums allowed mail carriers for extra time. Congress referred these claims for overtime to the court of claims, and the court is now making nianv allowances of claims. The amounts are small., but they go to many persons and in the aggregate tbey are very large. After 'the court allows the claim it is sent to congress to be included in the post office anoroDrlatlon bill. When this bill comes uo Mr. Aitkin intends attacking the lawwrs fees in it. He says that attorneys have sent out circulars representing representing the difficulties of collecting the extras. Many of the mail clerks have thus been ludnced to sign contracts and pow ers of attornevs bv. which the lawyers win get Der cent or their cjaini Mr. ATftetntleclares that any Such charge is extortion, and he will endeavor to have the annronriatlon so amended that the 25 ner cent fee will be cut off. . Submarine Torpedo Boat. The. board of naval bureau chiefs has practically completed the plans for a submarine submarine torpedo- torpedo- boat of the Holland type. The construction bureau has been engaged In gathering data to show what the thickness thickness of the shell of tho craft should be to resist the explosive effect of the torpedo torpedo discharged at short range. In this connection ' recourse was had to the old Lav tornedo shell, which was used in the Newport exneriments about a year ago. It was fonnd that the shell ltore'the force of the explosion very well until the range was brought within SO feet from the torpedo torpedo when it becan to show signs of disruption, disruption, belnc severely battered. As this shell Is acnrvelv thicker than ordinary tin nlatc. - the constructionists estimate that the shell of the submarine - boat. which must be half an inch thick to withstand the water pressure at considerable considerable depths, will be amnly strong enough to resist the explosion's of a torpedo torpedo at very short range. These facts will le laid befcre Secretary Herbert, who is expected to thereupon issue tho neces sary orders of the building of the boat. The Bounty Matter. No action is being taken by the Louisiana Louisiana delegation ' in the matter of the bounty pending the arrival of Messrs. Pearl Wight, J. C. Morris aud Martin from New Orleans. Spnator Caffery was informed by a leading Republican to-dav. to-dav. to-dav. in fact by Mr. Allison of Iowa, who is a member of the appropriation committee, that there would be no chance to get run bounty on the sugar crop, and tTTat 1 cent a pound and 9-10 9-10 9-10 of a cent, the proportions proportions fixed by Senator Caffery in bis bill. wer larsre figures, as he did not believe the Republicans were inclined to vote for more than 7 and 6-10 6-10 6-10 of a cent on the sugars testing 90 degrees, and above and below 90 degrees respectively.

Democrat, Democrat, representing the San Francisco district district in the house, which is a reply to the note sent out to the members by the Louisiana- Louisiana- delegation in connection with the sugar memorial.
