The situation that confronted the treasury nnd the* country, he said, had notcornc suddenly upon us, nor without ample naming. A finance minister of Franee had once remarked wrc'islienlly that God good to drunken people, little children and the people of the United States, Was the United States to go out of the business of furnish::)? currency for the country as a bar.k of issue? If not, what uas it gping to do in order to avoid the financial bad lands? Wcru the people of the country to keep on transgressing ei cry law of finance, defying the woild, and continue to do what every ei^r nation 1'ad failed to do" To illustrate the result of the present system, Mr. IIen-;rix pointed to the large accessions of gold wade by the Bank of France and the Bank of England ut our expense. The former yesterday held 2,flOO,000 gold francs, the latter £33,000,0110 in gold. The capital and the gold bullion of the world was resting in these great pools waiting to sec what this country Mr. Teller (rep..

In his annual raes^age President Cleveland recommended the settlement of the claims by paying a lump sura. This v.-as in accordance with the desires of Secretary Gresham, who has considered a compromise settlement belter than a long controversy. The executive branches of the government have not requested the appropriations committee to insert the 5-^33,000 item in an appropriation bill. Jt would be a part of the sundry civil bill. The law provides that estimates shall be transmitted by the secretary of tlie fcrcasur}' of all needed expenditures. This particular estimate has not yet been submitted, nor is the general recommendation of the I'rcsidcnt regarded as sufficient to dispense \ \ i t h the estimate. If it is hereafter submitted and the committee incrts the amount in the sundry rinL bill, it w i l l be stoutly opposed on the iloor of the ,,. . . _ house bv members who do not approve States be impaired if the United Mates of Sccr e tar y Gresham's plan of settling should exercise its discretion and re- ,(,,, ,,],,,, deem the Sherman notes in sili-crv "Yes, I believe it would at this time,"' replied Mr. Ilcndri.v.

Mr. Dingley (rep., Maine) placed the necessity for remedying the defects in the currency system above the ncccs- iity of relieving the treasury.

Further Correnriondcnce If Lalll Before WASIIINOTOV, Jan. r,.--The President has sent 1o congress nnolhcr batch of Ha'.iaiian correspondence, supplc- ·-ncntiiry to the Walker report. It deals with the differences of opinion between Admiral Walker and United States Minister Willis and the effort being made by the British government, with the consent of the Hawaiian authorities, to .secure the lease of an island of the Hawaiin group tobcusedns a cable station. The projected lease of the island as a cable station is explained by Minister Willis in several letters, beginning Oct. 1,1. In t h e first letter Mr. Willis s.ijs Unit negotiations had been pending batman the Hawaiian government and representatives of Great Britain in regard to an ocean cable between Canada nnd Australia, touching at Nicker island or Honolulu. He did not think that an agreement would be renelicd at present, owing to the clause in our treaty with Hawaii prohibiting the cession of any of the islands to any foreign government without our consent. Dee. .1 the cable propoiition seems to have taken full stiape, for on that date Mr. Willis stales that the Hawaiian government is of "the opinion that it is prevented from considering 1 the proposition by the British commissioners by article I of the reciprocity trc.ity hc- tuccn Hawaii and the United Stutcs government, lie udds: "This, matter is nowvthcroi'orc. at the request of this government submitted to the consideration of our gov- cranlcnt upon tlic question of its wlll- !ngTips toimllify the treaty of reciprocity by exempting Neck?^ island, French Frigate, shoals or Niho.l (Uard island) from tho operation of article 4 of the t r e a t y .

FOK A JIIG ISSUE OF 2JONDS. Spcrry or Connecticut Has u substitute for tne Carlisle Flan. WASIIIN-GTOX, Jan. 5.--Representative fcperry of Connecticut, a democratic colleague of M. Springer on the banking and currency committee, hns proposed another substitute to the Carlisle currency bill. It strikes- out all after the enacting- clause, and provides for an issue of bonds builicicnt to retire outstanding greenbacks and trcasury notes under the Sherman net. The bonds are to bear 3 per cent internet, arc to be redeemed in gold, and .ire to be of denominations from SJO to £10,- 000, They arc-to run for thirty years, with the right to redeem them after ten years. The secretary of the treasury is empowered to keen the gold reserve up to a minimum of S10G,000,000 by selling these bonds. Provision is made for the steady retirement of the greenbacks, both from the proceeds of the bonds and from the surplus in the treasury. Mr. Sperry's substitute is understood to have executive approval in case the Carlisle bill can not pass Austria f^utorfl Its Sn^nr Proteit. WASHINGTON-, Jan.".--The tariff n a r between the United States and Europe readied an acute phase yesterday.

So far no threat of retaliation accompanied the protest, but it will follow, and it seems certain that if congress fails to come to the relief of t!ie executive by the removal of the duty which is supposed to cause the trouble, then resort must be had to retaliation, which will other opan European countries to our exports or close our o»u ports to all European products.

' r ~" HOOD'S ON TOP. A Mammoth Edition or ttenntirni CM eodan for 1893. IFrom ihq Lowell. Masa., Morning Mai].] Hood's calendar for 1S95 may nowb» obtained at the drugstores and cver^ one who gets one secures '-a thing o; beauty." Indeed, in the novelty of thr' desigu and the exquisitencss'of the coloring, the calendar surpasses a!( previous issues, just as Hood's calendars have for many years surpassed all others. The calendar is formed i a the shape of a heart and is ornamented 1 have always, becii charrnin«"'fel" i iures of Hood's calendars! Oi" the right is, a representation of "U inter," 1 the sweet little face | with light bron-n eyes peeping out | from a dainty cap, while the saoiv I flakes are falling all about The fact- I on the left is a picture of ''Summer.'' I and is lighted with blue eyes and th e I ead covered with bright llou ere. The ! shades are perfectly blended, and the I whole picture is surrounded by a tasty ! border. The design was made by MisL Maud Humphrey, one of the inost gifted and celebrated water colo- artiits in the country. The calendar | gives the usual information concerning the lunar changes, and upon the back is printed a. table of astronomical events especially calculated for C I Hood Co. The calendar is issued to advertise Hood's Sarsaparilla,Hood's Pills andthc other preparations of the firm,and is re- gardcd as most difficult to manufacture, its novel shape being such as no other concern has ever undertaken to produce in large quantities. It uns necessary to purchase several addi. tional machines especially for this job, so thut there was a very large amount of machinery and a whole regiment of people employed in this branch of the extensive business at the hip laboratory in Lowell. During the five months when the calcif- dars were being made there were actually employed cwT3" dav in this part of the work at the laboratory Six printing presses, one bronzing run- chine, four ,eje letting machines, seven wire stitchers, cijht large paper cutters and 102 persons. At the beginning of the work this large force was able to produce about 100,000 calendars a day and for several weeks toward ihe close the uaiij production amounted to 340,000 calendars. The edition of Hood's calendars for J69I5 was 10,30^,000, or about J,iOO,- 000 more than last year. This, of course, is an immense number, but the general reader has only a faint conception of its magnitude until he is reminded that the little r,oo,00o added to the ten millions is considered an enormous edition by many of tlic largest advertisers in ihe world. If the calendars were laid down in a single line, they would reach almost one thousand miles, and if the different pieces in the calendar pads weru laid iu this way they would extend almost tlnee thousand miles, or from Xew York to Liverpool. For the past eight years, Hood's calendars have e'v- cecclcd in number every similar publication, but it was hardly dreamed that they would ever come up to the mammoth edition which was demanded tins j ear. Lowell haslong been proud of thii great industry which has given her almost a uorld wide reputation, a u d i t is a matter of no small iroportancctlut so many of her people find ple-asant and profitab'e employment in the work of making and "advertising the great blood purifying medicine, Hood's Sir- saparilla, whose actual cures in every part of the country have been the wonder of the medical profession and have caused many hearts to overflow witli gratitude. Those who are unable to obt.i.n Hood's Sarsaparilla, Calendars at the drug stores should send six cents in Stamps for one, or J O cents for two to C. I. Hood Co., Lowell, Mass. ' H I LOOK Our Fof. BoilBKS.--Now is the time to make a search for the borers and eject them from the trees. There are other pests that may be looked after at the same time, as the tent caterpillar, whose eggs may be found on the twyrs ready for hatching in the spring. These are to be looked for on those trees «here nests were made in the last spring, and when found should be cut off tvith the pruning shear! and burned. The borers, newly hatched, will not have penetrated far into the stem and may be found near tho bottom, where the dust made by the charp teeth of the larvaj will be found. A little digging with a small, sharp gouge will briiig the grubs to light and thus prevent a \vhole winter's damage by the insects in boring 1 further into the trees.--American Farmer, _ In a recent article on coffee and cocoa, the eminent licnnat. chemiit, Prof. Stut/cr, speaking of the Uutcli process oi preparing 1 cocoa by the ail- dition of potash, and of the process common in Germany in which ammonia is added, says: "The onIj result of these processes is to make the liquid appear turbid to the eye of the consumer, without effecting a real solution of the cocoa substances. This artificial manipulation for the purpose .of sn called solubility is, therefore, more or less inspired by deception, and always lakes place at thccost of purity, pleasant taste, useful action, anu aromatic flavor. The treatment of cocoa by such chemical means is entirely objectionable. . . . CocoJ treated with potash or ammonia vt oaU be entirely-unsalable but for the supplementary addition of nrtificialllavor* by which_ a poor substitute for lb« aroma driven out into the air is offered to^tho consumer."
