Of course nothing can ho definitely predicted us tn legislation, hut tlio desire for a canal •has never attained such proml- nonco in;congress as nt the present time.

Tho opposition to this legislation is quite pronounced, m»l a bitter fight Is expected. Borne of tlio opponents arc ready to resort to the extreme methods of long speeches and filibustering in order to prevent a vote, but whether a sufficient number will bo foupd to go to this length is not known. The antlsualping legislation has boon before congress for two or three sessions and has boon canvassed pro and con before tho dltforent ooiiimlttow having the bills, in charge for twtror three years back. There has bean ui majority in both house* for some legislation, but it has never reached anythfog. like a climax, it is so easy to defeat the bill by discussing other propositions and keeping: It from being considered that It will be strango If It gets through in time to beoomo a law. A Bl« ladtaa Clalsa. - Porter J. MoCumbor, tho newly electod senator from North' Dakota, will have an opportunity to push an Indian claim, the facts of which he has investigated for himself. About six years ago be was made chairman of a commission to Investigate the claim of the Turtle mountain Indians for the payment of money for land which they say was taken front them by the general government without any even $3.50 per acre. Whatever price was allowed theilnilinns was to bo repaid to the government when tho settlers took tho lands. Out of tills has grown', tho celebrated "free homes bill," which has agitated congress'for two or three sessions. The tcople who settled on tho lands now want to. have tho same consideration us other settlers on government lands anil ho relieved from the payment of this money. Every attempt thus fur to pass such a bill has foiled, but senators and representatives from tho states affected have not given up hope of getting it through. AKTHX'n W. Dr.KK.

HIS SCHEME LAID BARE His Plot to Murder Barraif and Cornish Was Formed Months Ago With a Deliberation That is Anpaiing. New York,Jan. 87.—A private letter box In the name of U. 0. lisrnet was* rented at No. 2S7 West Forty.secoaus street under . circumstances similar te> the rental of a private letter box at No. 12S0 Broadway in the name ot "H.
