WASHINOTON CITY, Feb. 15.—Ore of the rmwt In.poi-iant internal Improvement projects winch In advocated by repreiontatlves of a nuinlKT of wdste-n statas oinoi up for coa^Mnrntion In house and senate committees soon. Ttis Is what Is known as the Illi,.._. nola river improvement scheme. It Is nn Limited Pa.slO:68p.m. out K ro«th of the Hennepin canal movement, but la a more comprehensive plan than the Hennepln canal. The friends of tho Hennepin nie very apprehensive that it imy be the Intention to eliminate Hennepln from the propotod improvement, and for that reason there Is evidently some antagonism to this now project. The plan, which is to be supported by a very powerful delegation from several of the western fitntos, is that which la known as the Illinois river Improvement as rocommnnded by the Peorla convention. Hhns Bupportcrs not only In the western states; but in most, state* in the union, and Is urged BB a national measure The purpose of it is to continue the present line, of Inland navigation from the headwaters of navigation on the Illinois river to Lakn^ Michigan There are practically three parties not In harmony as to details, but agreeing as to the general subject—the Uepnepln canal people, those favoring.the Illinois river scheme who want thu lake outlet to lie tho Chicago river, nnd thoje who prefer the Calumet rivor. The two latter distinctly disclaim any opposition to tho Hennepin scheme. Tho Illinois river men propose to construct an efllHoiil ship canal from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi river, making uio of tho navigable Illinois river and of ths canal as for as Joliot, in the state of Illinois. There would remain to bo constructed only the link botn-eeii Jolit-t and Lake Michigan. Each pbn IIQB a (It-legation here pushing its interest with congress. One of the delegations in tho inwrcgS ot the Illinois river Improvement ask that the lake outlet of the proposed Bhip canal shall be at Calumet -Those who favor this line, of course, flon't Intend to have the canal go to Chicago proper. On the other hind tha citizsns' committee of Chicago has a large delegation here, consisting, among others, of the following persons • Hon. H. B. Kurd, D. L. Bborey, Edwin Leo Rrown^O. W. Guthrle, J. Gambler nnd Mr. King. The citizens' committee desire to hnve the Inke outlet of the canal at the mouth of ihe 'Chicago river, and they bring very strong arguman ti In support of thla proposition. The Chicago river, they show, is now a great artery of commerce, and Is, In fact, already a linlfcnud the northern terminus of the cnnnl to Joliet. • . . The purpose is to deepen and widen the rivor so that it would be suitable for inland ships of war, and conserve commercial purposes as well; and It is claimed that the connection with tho Illinois river improvement could be made easier and at vastly less expense through tho Chicago river than byway of Calumet or along any other route proposed. To the suggestion that has been made that Chicago 1ms a large Interest In having the canal located on this roqte In order that it might provide an outlet for the sowngo of tho cily, the citizens' committee come herewith the answer end the propoiition thnt if the canal Hhould incidentally serve as an aid In the sewnge system of Chicago tho city la prepared to contribute a very large sum to aid the government In the prosecution of this work. Members of the citizens' committee had made propositions of this sort to congressmen, and are dollberatlng now na to the expediency of having such a proposition made directly to concre-a In the t jrm of a bill. CONGRESS CONTINUESTO KILL TIME. Very Little Ilnslness of General Interest in Either House. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 15.—The senate Tuesday adopted a resolution requiring the commerce committee to outline the facto on each Item of tha river and harbor bill who i reporting lha same. The alleged Inefficiency of the mall service was again debated without action, Plumb, Platt, Reagan and Man- demon .participating. Hawley opposed the educational bill, the compulsory education of Indian children was discussed without action, and the senate adjourned after a secret session had been held. The bouse appropriated $03,000 for 25,000 copies of the executive document on the subject of cattle and dairy products. The bill to license railway conductors was adversely reported. In committee of the whole the deficiency bill was taken up, but most of the time was devoted to the discussion of the bill requiring subsidized railways to maintain and operate telegraph Hues. COT Introduced » bill for the rcfuudln; of ta,'. J !K,tf)7 to tl.e mayor, aldermen and common council of New York city, being the principal and Int?rest of bonds Issued to defend the city In !S61 and 18Ca The house then adjourned. Plymouth rock up to this dny have been under local control, aud wisely- so. It was a bill to promote medlcancy, to cultivate beg gars;, a bill declaring the failure of local self government In one of the supreme, interest* of tho pwjplo. It falsely declared the bank rnptcy of states which before our very eyes ware rich and growing. The longor, sail Senator Hnwloy, this bill Is thought of, tht weaker it grows, and the nearer to constitn tlonal right and justice the people are com ing, and he was willing to see It defeated by any of the cons! Itutlonal means, whether by the house, by the senate, or by the president. Worrying the Potttofflce Department. WASHINGTON Crrr, Feb. 15.—The only f object of discussion that gave the least lite to the monotony of the proceedings In the senate Tuesday was the alleged bid mail •ervica In the west, of which Plumb said it was Inexcusably and nnprecodontcdly bad, and that the attacks upon It were not partisan, as Democratic papers) wera most severe in their critic! ma. Platt said the same trouble existed In the east, and Reagan insisted that the complaints should l<e made to the department, and not to tha senate, and that the whole matter was brought un for political effect ____^ Kilnonton Talking. WASHIKOTOH Crrr, Feb. 15.—The National Educational association convention opened hero Turadaywlthout about Ofty prominent instructors, representing nearly every state In the union, in attendance, Mr. Charles E. Ham, of Chicago, road a paper on "How and to What. Eitont Can Manual Training Be Engrafted on Our System of Public Schools!" which led to a long discussion. A resolution offered by Mr. W. E. Anderson, of Mllwau- keo, was adopted providing for a committee of seven to report next year the outline of a practical course of instruction in manual training. Couldn't Down Martin of Texiu. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 15.—On the joint resolution to print 25,000 copies of the document on cattle and dairy products Martin of Texas, who obtained notoriety on his first arrival In Washington In December by being accused in a local .{feper of having blown out the gas in his room on going to bed, made his maiden speech. Although he' was unrecognized by the chair, and the gavel fell all through hi* remarks with great emphasis, he succeeded in stating, amid great applause, that every farmer In the country should have a copy of the document Tilid to Hutrher Her Children. WASHINGTON CUT, Feb. 15.—Irene Parke, 40 years old, colored, while Insane Monday night, tried to kill her two daughters, ogod respectively 9 and 12 years.

LONDON, Feb. 15. -In the house of commons Tueslny evening Ferguson, under foreign secretary, explain* 1 that in his recent statement to tho house that the government had not plodgod IU»lf to military action in behalf of any European power, he also wished it to be understood that no naval action had been pledged. Beyond the treaties known to tho country, he said none existed. He declined to produce the correspondence which hnd passod between the English government and the other European government* on the ground that be did not deem It advisable to do so. In reply to a question by Labouchere, Ferguson said he could not say at this time whether any enga^emant other than a treaty had been made by the government. Trevelyan, resuming tho'debate on tha addpflwi, dodnred that the conviction of twelve members of the house of common* under the crimes act would do more than anything else to effect a settlement of tho Irish question. The country had seen that Irishmen could be arrested In England for a crime created by the coercion act— a crime which did not exist under English law, and for which an Englishman could not be arrested, nor a foreigner surrendered. Tho Liberal-Unionlste who had formerly advocated local self-government In Ireland were now silent. Maj. Sanderson said that Parnell's attack; upon the government Monday evening was the weakest he had ever made, and could not justify the terrorism against which the government was fighting. The Parnellltes were never a law-abiding; psople, and never would be. Irishmen did not naturally sympathize with the law, and that was one of the defects of tho race, to which he himself belonged. Concluding, he asked whether the moral law of the Gladstones, "Thou shalt not steal, except from, the landlords," was likely to. educate the moral Bonne of the poo- Has just received B car of SPLINT COAL Tks^ z!7z« ^j/wr to It-Am- in YOUI? pie. ear Ruwll, member for South Tyrone, spoke at great length In favor of tho Irish policy of tho government. Ho urged Bolfour to go itralght ahead, pay attention to nothing out- ilde of the low, and abut his eyes to the pestilential notion that commonors and, arieats should rocoive different treatment Irom that given to peasants. Labouchere made a vigorous attack upon ihe govern inont In connection with tho Mltcn- elstown affair, Into which ho .demanded searching inquiry. Anderson, member for Elgin and Nairn, gave notice of bis intention to. move an amendment to the- address favoring the ap- x)lntment a of land commission similar to the Irish commission for Scotland, where, he said, the decline In the price of product* had rendered it impossible for tenants to pay rents unless they were considerably reduced.

LONDON, Feb. 15.-The Globe devotes a ong loader to discussion of Blalne'8 letter de- llning to permit the use of his name In thn text Republican national convention, and es therein good ground forsusplclon that he sires the nomination, but wants to have it pear that it was forced upon him.

"If, however," e Globe continues, "ho li perfectly sincere vhich possibly he may be—be has simply •formed an act of loyalty to his party, and Obably the party will take him at his word. Mr. Blalue has never, with all his ability proved himself a candidate that the Republican party could win with, and the solution of the mystery which has for a long time surrounded Mr. Blalne's aspirations to the presidency is that he^oppreciatos this fact, and perceives the advantage to the party and to himself of declining to be ite figurehead in the next campaign," Rlgh-Randed Russian Proceedings. _ LONDON, Feb. 15.—The expulsion by the Russian government of Austrian subjects from Poland without explanation- or indemnification for the confiscation of their property or abandonment of profitable pursuits , continues and increases rather than diminishes In extent Large numbers of Austrian* had settled in Russian Poland, many of whom had established themselves in lucrative business enterprises and become possessed ot real and personal property of large aggregate value.
