TO SUPERYiSE ITS PRINTING WHAT THE COMMITTEE SUGGESTS TO 005STITUTI05AL COBTENTIOH.

Jun 1 Tha I -Prlntlne- fom- tnlrte. of the Constitutional Convention submitted Its report to-day, covering th. outrageous scheme to rob) the Stat, for printing the detailed proceedings of th.

con vention. The scheme has been exposed la the columns of Th. New-York The report Is very conservative, and only touches upon th. Jurisdiction of th convention In regulating the expenses of printing. It shows that the official compiler.

George A. Glynn, on April 6. made a contract with Th. Albany Journal, a Republican news-. paper, and The Albany Argus, a Democratic newspaper, to publish a stenographic re port of the proceedings of! th.

convention from day to day. at a cost of 75 cents a folio, and that th stenographer's minutes are supplied at the rate of 20 cents a. folio. Irrespective of the official reporter. It also shows that the manual of th.

official compiler Is to consist of eight vol umes at a cost of between and 000, while the official manual of th. conven tion of 1S67 cost only $8,000. Th. law that brought the compiler Into official existence provided that the manual should be ready by the timle th. convention met.

But the report states that th. last volume will not be Issued uiider three weeks. or seven, weeks alter the convention first as sembled. The report closes wKh tie following rec ommendations: I That the comntler be reaulred not tn snthnrie or direct any further expenditures for printing or supplies without the order lot this convention or the President or Secretary i hereof. inat tne publication of the proceedings of this convention In Ther Argus and IThe Albany Evening Journal should be discontinued in case the convention deems It haa authority in the prem- That th future miMlcatlona of th Manmu.

should be in less expensive binding. That two special stenographic reports of th proceedings and debates of the convention are unnecessary and that the official mn i.t be used for all purposes. The report was laid oa the table, and ordered printed. It will be considered some day next week. That the convention possesses ample Juris-' diction to restrain the compiler and contractor from running Into Unnecessary expense Is held by a number of members of the Judiciary Committee.

Which will eventually take hold of this question. as one ox tne delegates said to-day. "This convention Is a lunvanimi The Legislature no doubt possesses the power to appropriate money for the convention, but it has no power to direct us how we shall expend it. How absurd It is to say we cannot reeulat mir own ao'e oy tne law which the nas imposea I upon us, what should-prevent the Legislature from providing for three sets of stenographers, two secretaries, and a dnion uivHnti arm.

I The convention then adjourned until next Tuesday, at 10 o'clock. The Committee on Cities met after th session to-day and decided to meet in execu tive session next Tuesday evening consider the question as to the time for holding municipal elections.

This Is the hearing at which those from all parts! of the State who favor woman suffrage will be heard and will be the last hearing on the; suffrage side.

Strife Ja the Worn a pnffrage Camp. KANSAS C1TT. June lL There has been fight In th woman suffrage! camp for quit a while, Helen M. Oougarjand Susan B. Anthony are the most Interested contestants.

The former has written to The Hepubilc, a weekly published at Argentine, in which she says of Miss Anthony: Sh has never succeeded tn th adoption of a single suffrage law. She haa met crushing defeat In every! amendment to the State Constitution which she baa championed. Her present unwise leadership In Kansas will lead to sore defeat unless the people of that Stat take matters Into their own hands. Either cause Miss Anthony and Mrs. Johns to remove th boycott on moral issues, or let not a dollar or an effort go to make sur defeat more humiliating than otherwise because manipulated by them under the whip of political and moral cowardice of th Republican Party." In spite of this attack, th suffrage leaders are carrjlag-on the cam paign with vim.

WASHINGTON. Jun. According to of ficial letters received; at th Navy Department to-day. th. damag.

to aay nothing; of losing several weeks' as. of th. ship. It seems that no leu than twelve of; her lng plates ar. badly that the cement must be renewed In order that th.

Inner hull and distorted frames may straightened. Admiral Selfrldge says th. Columbia drew 23 feet Inches forward 25 feet 6 inches aft. The charts show" that th normal depth of water In Reedy's Island Channel, where th. accident 1 supposed to hav.

oc curred, is but 21 fett, and that at the' high est tide it Is only 27 feet which Is considered a very narrow margin on which to run a magnificent war vessel at a lft-knot speed. especially aa this depth of channel Is leas than 100 yards wide and haa several turns la It. Th. semi-official explanation offered, that the Columbia may have struck some log or other rubbish brought down by th. recent heavy rains, causes -amusement among naval officers, who never before heard of logs floating twenty-five feet under the ur-face.

They declare that the ship could not hav. been so sertouslv- In lured hv merelv scraping the bottom, but that th. damag. must un uvea aon oy sometning as solid as herself. On account of delays which hav.

occurred ft the League Island Navy Yard, th. Columbia may not be; put In the dock until to-morrow morning, and in a few days th. extent of damages And an estimate of th cost of repairs wUl bo in th hands of Secretary Herbert, Ah official Investigation Into thecause of the Injury certain to follow. There rs considerable comment upon the efforts made to th. faou and to belittle them after their disclosure.

Jun. cruiser Columbia, which, it was developed yesterday sustained a big dent In her bottom while proceeding down the Delaware River on May 17 on hen final acceptance trial, will not be put upon the League Island Navy Yard dry dock until next week.

It may of next wk before the vessel will be taken out of the water. The work of repairing the ship will be don. by Cramp, and extra payment therefor will be made by th. Government. KGB.

While there Is no present prospect of cessation of gold exports, still ther ar no indications that a new bond Issue will resorted to by Secretary Carllal build up the reserve. Th Impression in Treasury circles Is general that the reserve jwtll reach as low a point as befor such an alternative aa a bond lasue will be resorted to. No financial disturbance resulted when th.

original reserve of was encroached upon, none when the reserve fell to $63,000,000 just before th. last bond Issue, and none Is apprehended now.
