'X, Feb. 2,').—The situation In the senate to-day is not more critical than it has been in the closing days of previous short sessions of congress. There is time, though none to spare, in which to dispose of all tho pcndin/r appropriation bills unless a deliberate effort is made to defeat some of thorn. ^>"o such contingency is deemed likely to arise. There are but three of the thirteen, great appropriation, bills that have received the approval of the executive. Six are in conference and in some of them radical points of difference between the two houses are involved. Chief amonj; 1 these is the diplomatic bill, which carries the senate appropriation of SoOO.OOO for the commencement of the work of laying 1 a cable between this country and the Hawaiian islands. The house has refused to ayrec to this amendment and the senate by a good majority has directed its managers to insist upon it. Some senators are so impressed with tlie importance of this proposition that they say they are willing- to permit the -whole bill to fail r.'i.ther than allow the amendment to be stricken out. On the other hand, Senator Blackburn, one of the senate conferees, is authority for the statement that the president would veto the whole measure if this provision left in the bill. man (dem., lud.) the' house noneou- curred in the senate amendments and a conference was ordered—Messrs. Hoi- man, Allen (dem.. Miss.) and Pickler (rep., S. D.) being namcd_as managers. Permission was given Mr. Snodgrass (dem., Term.) to file tho views of the minority of the committee on Pacific railroads upon the bills to refctid the indebtedness of the Pacific railroads. The house then, in committee of the whole, continued the consideration of the general deficiency appropriation bill for .the current year. Adopted in Committee. The house took up the general deficiency bill and made good progress until the Item of S-lii,OOU to pay the British government in full for all damages sustained by the sealing vessels was reached. After a debate lasting- two hours tlio amendment was adopted by n vote of 0-1 ayes to Sf> an vs. ICfji't't-ni by iliu ilousc. The committee rose and the bill was reported to the house. The iiehrnig ; sea amendment, on a yea and nay vote, w:is rejected—yens, 112; nays, 1 •),'}.

CHICAGO, Feb. 2~>, —Two boys made the ghastly discovery of the body of n man at Ninety-fifth street and Western avenue at 9 o'clock Monday morning.

The body was found half reclining against a . tree. Terrified by the greu'soine object the boys i\ea without making • any investigation. They notified residents of Evergreen Park, near which the body lay, and a party of men went to the spot. They found the body of a man about or 30 years old. It was roughly dressed and gave evidence of having been exposed to the weather for a considerable time. Circumstances surrounding the discover}- led the men to believe that a crime had been committed, and that the mangled body was the first evidence of an assault and murder. ^ Hud Ueen Attacked by Dogs. The man's legs and trunk had been burned and the ropes around the hands and shoulders indicated that he had been attacked andreducedtosu.btnissi.on after a struggle. Large pieces of flesh had been torn out of his legs, and the supposition is that prowling dogs had found and attacked the body-before it was found by the boys Monday morning. IJeep Ganh in H*atl. Closer examination of the body showed that a deep gash had been made in the head and that one hand was cnt, evidences of a terrible struggle. A .Lonely Locality. The locality in which the mutilated body was found is unusually deserted. The corners of Xinety-fifth street and Western avenue are near the Grand Trunk tracks, and the road is skirted by clumps of brush and underbrush, in one of which the body was found. The coroner was summoned, and an investigation w»a begun. Night sessions will be the onlei' this week. The senate will begin on Tuesday, -when unobjeeted bills on tlie calendar will be taken up for action. There is a probability that on Saturday, -March 2. the senate may remain in session sill night, talcing a recess for a few hoiir.s only during tlie middle of the day on Sunday. Ill r.lic lU)i:sc. Xo programme has been arranged fur the last week's buslines of tbe sessions of the Ij'ifty-third congress in the house of representatives, and under' existing conditions none can be outlined in advance. The indications are that with the -exception of ..some pri- v.'it^bill. for which consideration may be had by unanimous consent, no further legislation w:l] be accomplished nt this session, save appropriation bills. Soimto Pi'oceciliiiffs. WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. — The conference report on the Dibtrict of Columbia appropriation bill was presented and discussed at considerable length. The conference report was agreed to, and the senate voted to insist further on the amendments still in dispute. >*I!C<1 Of >"l£llt Sc'HSlOlllt. Senator Cockrell (dem., JIo.), chairman of the committee on appropriations, made a statement as to the present condition of the appropriation bills and also as to the necessity of holding nifjht sessions. On the calendar now there were, he said, the sundry civil appropriation bill and tlie legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill. The naval appropriation bill would be received from the house Monday or Tuesday and the judiciary bill probably during the day. These bills would need as elosc and rapid attention as the-senatc could give them. lie asked that the senate take a recess Monday from 0 to S p. in. and continue the session till 10 or 11 at night. Senator Chandler (rep., N. II.} gave notice that if this proposition were agreed to, he would object to all business outside of appropriation bills. The senate then proceeded to the consideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill, consisting of 133 printed pages. The rule of consideration was, as in other appropriation bills, to read the bill in extenso and act on the amendments reported by the committee on appropriation as. they were read in th-s bill — independent amendments being kept back until this was done. A- conference report, on the post office appropriation bill was presented and agreed to, leaving still one amendment in dispute, and a conference was ordered on the Indian appropriation bill.

Notwithstanding the fact that there are a number of important bills before the senate committee on judiciary, there was no meeting Monday because the chairman believed there was nothing of importance pending.* Hefore this committee there are several bills that have passed the house, the friends of which in the senate are urging action.
