Jan. 14.— A scene not down In any botne bill took place Friday when Mills moved to adjourn the bouse until Monday. Tbe chairman of the ways and means committee, under the unwritten law which ba> prevailed In the house for a long time, 1s recognised as the premier, and allowed to "prorogue parliament" whenever he shall deem it necessary or expedieub. Unless discreetly, used this assumption of extraordinary power is frequently resented, and can easily be made a caaua belli whenever it shall so happen, that tbe premier U obdurate or willful in unnecessarily Interposing to defeat Incidental legislation to which no special objection oxlita. Well, this time, Hatch of Missouri wanted a Saturday session to pass tbe agricultural experiment station bill, and was somewhat taken aback to have the wind taken out of bis sails by the motion of Mills, and so he opposed the motion. Hatch's opposition fretted, the leader, and he became still more Irritated when a large majority, Including the solid Republican rote, refused to adjourn till Monday. Naturally enjoying a rnmpus between two prominent Democratic leaders, the Republicans did tbelr beet to foment the dlfllcnlty, and the hall rang with their laughter, applause, and taunting exclamation, "Oh, the leaderl" "Where's tbe leaderr and similar sneering remarks. Meanwhile, Mills, very red In the faco and pawing the air like a Texas steer, seemed to be giving Hatch a tongue-lashing for presuming to refuse to follow tbe leader. Hatch h»d turned toward him and was talking back and gesticulating vigorously at the Texan. In the midst of the laughter and confusion nothing said by either could be heard in the galleries. Tbe Republicans encouraged the wordy war, but the gavel enforced order, and Mills, stepping Into the aisle, made a remark that convulsed- the bouse with laughter, and almost made the Republican* throw up their hata, In undertaking to explain why he desired no session Saturday, he said many members on both sides had been to him to Inquire about it, and he had assured them "he would have norta" He finally explained that be had entered Into engagement* with other members which necessitated adjournment until Monday, which would otherwise prove embarrassing, and place him In a false position. Tbis made all things straight, and his, motion was carried. " . It requires a very cool head to be a leader of the house, and Democrats are asking whether Mills has this requisite. He is undoubtedly a very strong man in bis capacity as a representative in congress, but he is hot' beaded and irascible, although alwayi willing to right matters it be shall have gone too far. _ __ OPPOSED TO THE WHOLE THING.

Comptroller Durham haring refnsed to pay the appropriation because the hill was not explicit. Tbe bill permitting certain Inscriptions on second, third and fourth-Claris mail matter was passed, and the house df voted tbe remainder of the s«slon in committee of the whole to the private cal- nndar. Nothing but talk was done, and at 6:15 tbe bouse adjourned until Monday, _ THE LATEST FINANCIAL' PLAN. _ Stewart, of Nevada, Propose* *> Ne of Coin Certificate*. WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 14,— Stewart of Nevada offered In the senate Friday an amendment to the bill providing for the investment of certain Bams in the treatnry. It provides that any person may deposit at any mint or assay ofDc-i gold or silver bullion and receive certificates therefor.

They Give Some Reasons Why They Oppose Reduction of Duty. OIEVBLAND, O., Jan. 14.—The Western Irou Ore association, representing the mines which produce all tbe ore in the northwest and Missouri, held a meeting in this city Friday. Tho meeting was called almost entlre> for the adoption of a memorial to congress protesting against the removal or redaction of tho duly on iron ore. Tbe memorial represents that the aggregate production of iron ore in this country in 1887 was 13,000,000 toot, nearly one-half of which was taken from tbe mlnee represented by this association; that -a- capital of (140,000,000 U employed in these mines, and the railroads and shipping necessary to transport their product It represents that the removal Or lowering, of the ffay on iron ore would close many American mines. To show that the present duty—75 cents per ton—is Insufficient, the resolutioni quote the increase of Importation, l,80o,OUO tons baring been Imported irt ISSff from Spain, Africa, and Cuba, and declare that to put the American product upon competitive terms .with this foreign ore tbe doty should be 11.60 per ton. Tbe wage* received by the laborers who produced the import are such as would be humiliating to American laborer, and inch as the manufacturers <lo not ask him to accept. Tbe resolutions further slat* that America inust always depend on the home product for its supply of Iron, and the nip- ply will b* abundant if Its development be not retarded by low tariff. . Tbe ore to a product, and to call it "raw material" doe* not alter tbe case. In view of these consideration* the association pretests against removal or reduction of tbe duty on iron ore. Nloltoll* G«U the Nomination. EATON Rouoc, La., Jan. 14.—The Democratic state convention has completed the most important part of 1U labor*, and will toon adjourn finally. After the permanent organization of the convention Frmay, Gen. Nlcholls wa* placed in nomination and at 6 o'clock a ballot was taken. Quo, Nicholla received &5% roles, IBS McEuery men voting blanks. When tbe rrault was . made known leaders of the MoEuery faction moved that the nomination be made unanimous, which wa* done. This effectually ends all talk of. a bolt or serlom opposition in the party to Nlcholla. After nominating Nicholla the convention ajourued for the day. Got Their UU1* "DlvT." ALBANY, N.

WASHINGTON CITY, Jan. 14.— Vance was tbe principal speaker in the senate Friday, and he took for his text the tariff question. He laid the lines had been drawn closely by the president's message on the subject of the surplus and taxation; the contest bad to be fought out squarely, and tbe question had to be decided unequivocally on Its mor- Ita. That question was: Should taxation be enforced for the support of tbe government, or for the enrichment of private individuals! Bhoald-mouey be collected from the people for public or for private purposes! No reputable-hypothesis could be formed which presented any other phase of the question. Tbe question was where should the reduction of taxes begin I The proposition of most of tbe Democratic senators (following the lead of the president) was to begin and end with tariff taxation. The Republicans (on the other band) proposed to begin by reducing (only in part) internal taxes, and by adding to the free Hsb .those things coming from abroad which did not compete with things made in this country, and the duty on which was, therefore, all revenue. For himself, he proposed to begin with both evils as he found them—excessive internal taxes and excessive taxation. In North Carolina there wo* cause of complaint against each, but there wa<i far more complaint as to the method of Internal taxation than there was as to the amount. Why, he uked, should not the excise tax be repealed, or greatly modtfledt Tbe exigency which called it into existence bad long since passed away. It involved the right of a man to do wtat be pleased with his own, within the bounds of tbe law of liberty. It Involved the right of the farmer to sell the product of his labor-to any purchaser who offered the best price. It involved tbe right of tha husbandman to utilize the fruit of bis orchard Instead of leaving it to rot on tbe ground. It involved tbe still more momentous question whether the poor maju's cabin should be Indeed his castle, protocto 1 by the organic law, or whether it might be ransacked atony hour of tbe day or night by a petty official "dressed In a little brief authority," in search of tribute for on overflowing treasury. Tbe people of North Carolina cared little or nothing about tbe tax on spirits or tobacco. They would pay it cheerfully if they could be spared the oppressive and vexatious molhods and machinery of 1U collection. It was not a que*- tion (as was often so trlnmphatly stated) of • choice between free whisky and free blankets, because the duty on blanket* wo* now practically prohibitory, and they would not ba any cheaper it tha excise on whisky was removed. Vance proceeded, with much detail, to illustrate the 'inconsistencies -in the tariff, particularly as bearing against the article* consumed by the poor and In favor of those consumed by the rich. He declared that the central theory of the tariff was iniquity, and that he was opposed to the whole thing, out and out. He should not vote to put anything on the free list tbe tax on which was pure revenue}, he should strive earnestly to reduce taxation on the necessariea of life, and be shouVi aiicrimlnata in nothing except against luxurira, and in favor of the helpless aud unprotected. ______ THE CONGRESSIONAL SUMMARY. GROWING MORE COMPLICATED. American Lake Fishermen Mow Alleging; Annoyance Against Canada* ~ TVAfiHlNOTOH" 'CtTT,™ J«n.~tt—Tha- Indl-- catlons are that tbe fishery trouble* will become more complicated before they are settled. Representative Chipman, of Michigan, has laid before Secretary Bayard complaints showing that annoyance* are put upon American fishermen on tbe great lake* by the Canadian government similar to those complained of by tbe Now England fishermen. The specific complaint Is of the seizure by tbe Canadian superintendent of lake fisheries of net* valued at $20,000, which belonged to one Talsma, a citizen of Michigan, It is complained that the Canadian authorities are annoying the American fishermen la every way possible, and Interfering with the fishing Industry. Secretary Bayard has taken prompt action In the matter, telegraphing at once to the British government a protest against the seizure of the net*. Still Fighting Against Blair's Bill. WASHIKOTON Crrr, Jan, 14.—Senator Gray, ot Delaware, spoke against the educational bill In ' th* senate Friday. He protested that the measure was full of danger to tbe constitution and was urged on the principle ot a hlger law than the constitution. Tbo greatest measure of liberty and highest type of citizenship and civilization had been achieved and maintained by local self-government, a principle which this bill (truck down. He appealed to tbe southern senators to stand together against the bill, or it would demoralize tbe state* by making them dependent upon tbe general government for that which was their own business.. To this part of Gray's speech Blair answered that of the $102,000,000 expended for' school purpose* in tbe entire country, the southern states, with S3 per con', of tbe population, only expended J6 per cent. As B?\»y to Carry Ties as Lumber. WASHIHGTON Cnr, J«a 14.—Tbe interstate commerce commission has rendered a decision in tbe case of tbe complaint of Thomas J. Reynolds, of Corydon, Pa., against the ^ Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad company, alleging extortionate rates on railroad tie*. The commission orders that the railroad desist from charging a greater, price for the transportation of tie* from point* in* Pennsylvania to Balamanca and Clean, N.

R—Tha tripartite committee appointed by tha wool growers, manufacturers and dealers Thursday did not get their report retdy before 8 p. a.-Friday. The plan proposed was' immediately considered by the conference, which i modified It iu some. respect*, but reached < no agreement up to midnight Frt day. • Tom-Platt's Quarantine Case. ALBANY, ' N. Y., Jan. II ^-Ex-Senator Thomas C. Platt was adjudged a non-resident of the city of New York' by the jury Friday in the case of the people vs. Platt, who brought in a verdict to the effect that he bad uo legal residence in tbe metropolis. This verdict disqualifies him from holding tbe office or quarantine commissioner, which position he has held for the last eight years. Tbe law provide* that the commissioner* shall be residents of the oityr Mr. Plait's counsel moved to set aside the verdict and also fora new trial The case will now be taken to the general term. Platt has been ousted from office in accordance with the above verdict. . • Jan. 14.— It reqnire* but a very hasty perusal of Lord Salisbury's Liverpool speech to establish the conviction that tbe Tories are determined that tbny will not resign their control of tbe government, even In the faco of a vote of wont of confidence. Tbe premier has practically declared that he and hi* colleagues will remain in office until th* legal expiration of their term?, and a* there i* no question of importance upon which a majority agsinst the government would exceed a baker's dozen— if indeed on adverse vote Is at all possible— tbe outlook of the opponents .of the ministry for return to power is very poor at present. Parnisil has decided that be will not speak at Cork,, as he intended to da He realise* the importance of husbanding his strength for the contest that Is certain to take plaos In the houKe of commons over th* question of amending the rules of procedure. Tbe question of amending the rule* ha* lately engrossed tbe attention of the Irish press and provoked considerable surmise as to the scope it is intended to give them. Th* Dublin Express predict* that the amendment* — the adoption ot which goes without saying — will prohibit any member ofjthe house who hat been, or who ""may be, convicted of any offense under the coercion act from sitting In parliament, and declares It* belief that tbe government will put as many of the Irish members in jail as it possibly can before the Introduction of any Irish business in* tbe bouse. ______ Bpnrzeoa and the British Baptist*. LOMDOS, Jan. U— A deputation of members of the Baptist union called upon and held a long conference with. Mr. Bpurgeon Friday, with a view of inducing him to withdraw or modify his resignation from th* Baptist congregation. Mr. Bourgeon adhered to tbe phraseology and finality of hi* 'resignation, but said he would continue to support such departments of tha Baptist union a* he was specially interested In. Baleful Effect* of a Fog. Loiroon, Jnn. 14.— A great scare prevails In tbe poor quartan of Birmingham over tbe dense fog which ha* enveloped the city for the last few day* and which bos mo,ved the wiseacres of those localities to predict th* speedy coming of the end of tbe world.
