The death of Representative Burncs may
bare some bearing on the Cowles bill to re
peal tobacco taxes, as that gentleman was
opposed to the measure, and the Speaker
may not fill the vacancy by appointing a
man uho would be sure to vote against the
bill Naval experts say that ?G,O00,O00a
year ought to build our new navy fast
cnongh to be prudent and safe.
lErtClAL TELECKAM TO THE DISrATCH.l
Washington, January 24. The Vir
ginia delegation interested in the abolition
of the tobacco taxes will have a hearing to
morrow before the Appropriations Commit
tee. They will advocate the proposition of
Colonel Cowles, of Korth Carolina. At the
head of this delegation are cx-Govcrnor
Cameron and Kepresentative-clect Venable.
It embraces a number of the leading tobac
conists and other business men.
A matter of some consequence at this
time is the death at an early hour this
morning of Mr. Bnrnes, of Missouri. This
ccntleman was opposed to the Cowles bill,
and voted against the reference in the
House, and also opposed in committee the
liucof action favored by the friends ofrepcal.
It is said that, as the session is so near its
close, it isn't probable the Speaker will
make an appointment to fill the vacancy. If
it isn t ailed tfte opposition will nave one
A special feature in the matter is devel
oped to-day. It is the hostility of the lead
ing Republicans to any action being taken
by this Congress. Messrs. Reed and Bur
rows are not willing that any advantage
shall be given to the Democrats in the
States which are affected by the law. Hence
the word has gone out to the Republican
members from these States, and they have
suddenly changed position on the question.
Heretofore they have co-operated with the
Democratic internal tax reformers. Now
they express doubts if the proper course is
Some of the Virginia men now say that
the matter is one which should be settled by
the Ways and Means Committee in accord
ance with committee comity and the proper
procedure. Nothing was heard yesterday of
this stickling on the part of the Republi
cans from the South over questions of legis
lative etiquette. It is also said that the
number of Republican members of the Ap
propriations Committee who favor reporting
the measure is likely to be smaller than was
supposed. Messrs. Cannon, Butterworth
and McComas have been counted in iavorof
The friends of the movement are wide
awake here and in the States interested.
There is a concerted effort in Virginia by the
tobacco exchanges, and the same is true in a
less emphatic sense in North Carolina. In
the latter State the movement is not so
much to abolish the tobacco tax as to repeal
the special liquor licenses, which are a
source of great irritation in the central and
PEOSPECTS OF THE NAYY.
The Present Poller of Congress Recom
mended as Safe and Prndcnt.
"Washington, January 21. In its report
upon the naval appropriation bill, the House
Committee on Naval Affairs summarizes the
present condition and future prospects of
the navy of this country. The report says:
""With regard to a new navy, Congress
seems to have settled upon a policy of ap
propriating toward its construction about
$6,000,000 per annum. Your committee be
lieve that this will build up a navy as fast
as prndence dictates. Our Navy Department
and our ship builders are utilizing, as far as
may be, by every means in their power, the
knowledge acquired from the costly ex
perience of other nations, but they must
acquire experience of their own. Too creat
taste on the part of the Government would
inevitably result in confusion and waste,
and most probably in combination, instead
of competition, among ship builders. Be
sides, it would be an easy matter in this
country to build ships more rapidly than we
could supply them with armament of do
mestic manufacture. Even in Kncland,
with all their facilities, there is loud com
plaint that the Government and all their
contractors are unable to supply guns as
they are wanted. The manufacture of a
modern high-power gun is not only an ex
pensive but a slow and tedious process."
The committee says'that the appropriation
of 5025,000 Jor extending the gun plant at
the "Washington Navy Yard7 which has
proved to be insufficient, will, taken in con
nection with other items, be all that is
necessary to put three different navy yards in
condition to build the hulls of "the finest
modern vessels, armored and unarmored, as
well as for the complete equipment of a
great plant for the assembly of heavy ord
nance. Satisfactory progress is being made by
the private contractors for supplying heavy
gun and armor plate for rapid- fire machine
guns, and, says the committee, "it will be
seen that Congress, by the passage of the
bill we report, will have taken the last
step necessary to render the Government ab
solutely independent of the world in the
matter of building and equipping a navy.
It has been the constant aim of the commit
tee and of the department to provide for
ships the best of their class and guns equal
to any in the world.
"There is ample competition among bid
bers for the construction of engines and ma
chinery, and in this matter American en
terprise and ingenuity seem likely to lead
the world. To get from a vessel of the type
of the Vesuvius a speed of 20 knots an hour
seemed, when Congress made it an absolute
requirement, a difficult task; but it was un
dertaken, and that vessel on its recent trial
trip showed the wonderful speed of 21.61

Tlio Elver and Harbor Appropriation Bill a
Hard One to Pass.
"Washington, January 24. The mem
bers of the Committee on Rivers and Har
bors are becoming somewhat disheartened
by the ill success attending their efforts to
secure passage of their appropriation bill
resulting from obstructive tactics in the
House, and lack ol diligence on the part of
members whose support they believe they
have a rijrht to expect
Having arrived at the conclusion that an
extraordinary effort is necessarr to save the
bill, a paper'is being circulated among the
members, and being very generally signed,
requesting the Speaker to entertain a mo
tion on the next suspension day to pass the
measure under a suspension of the rules.
HE OUGHT TO EESIGN.
A Government Official Tries to Hold Two
"Washington, January 24. Mr. "W. L.
Thompson is a special Inspector of Customs
at El Pas.o, Tex. He also represents cer
tain persons who have claims against the
Government for duties paid on animals
specially imported for breeding purposes.
On the 3d inst he wrote a letter to Eepre
sentative Sayers, asking for certain informal
tion with a view to furthering said claims.
Bepresentative Sayers referred the letter to
the Treasury Department
Assistant Secretary Maynard has replied
"that the department has "no information to
give upon the subject referred to by Mr.
Thompson furthe than to suegest that in
view of the manifest impropriety of a pub
lic officer, while in the service, interesting
himself in behalf of claimants against the
Government, and of the fact that Mr.
Thompson desires to represent the class of
claimants above mentioned in the prosecu
tion of their claims, his resignation from the
service should be promptly tendered.
VERY TERSISTENT WOMEN.
They Attack Seven Different Congresses for
Ike Sixteenth Amendment.
"Washington, January 24. The recep
tion room of the Senate wing was crowded
this morning with representatives of the
National "Woman's Suffrage Association,
which has just closed its annuil session in
this city, and their friends, who came to
present their arguments in behalf of the
proposed sixteenth amendment to the Con
stitution, granting women the right of
Addresses were made by several women
prominent in the cause, and Miss Anthony,
closing the subject, said that the woman
suffragists had made their first appeal to
Congress in 18(56, and had since appeared
before seven different Congresses. She
warned the committee that unless they se
cured favorable action, either uponthe six
teenth amendment or an act declaring: that
the tourteenth and fifteenth amendments con
ferred the right of suffrage upon women,
they would be coining here regularly for 20
years more, or as mnch longer as is neces
sary to secure their wishes.
The delegation to-day contained repre
sentatives irom Minnesota, New Yoik, Ken
tucky, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Ne
braska, Maryland and Massachusetts.
A NEW COLLECTING CRAZE.
Calcnilnrnnln Has Seized the Peoplo Tho
Demand for Artistic Work.
"With the appearance of the new year a
new collectors' craze has come into vogue,
which bids fair to equal the fancy card,
stamp, and other kindred hobbies that have
civen diversion and amusement to the
This time it is calendars, in all shapes,
sizes and colors, representing the advertise
ments of all classes of business, and this, to

this mode of advertising will explain why
there is such a demand for calendars, and
why they take so well.
More calendars have been issued this
year than ever before. The designs and col
ors of some are artistic and unique, and
certainly make a very pretty display.
Secretary Brown, of the Lawrenceville X.
M. C. A., already has over 80 grouped on
the wall back of his desk, makinc a pretty
background, and others are skirmishing
around among their friends to increase their
collection. The collector surely ought not
to forget the day of the week or month.

Public Reception on February 7.
FltOM A STAFF COBRES rONDENT.
HAitniSBTjEG, January 24. The social
lestivities at the Executive Mansion have of
late years been very few, for good reasons.
Governor Fattison and wife lost their little
son shortly after taking possession of the
mansion, 3nd scarcely had Governor Beaver
been inaugurated ere he was called upon to
mourn the loss of his youngest son.
Two years have elapsed, and it is an
nounced that Governor and Mrs. Beaver
will receive the members of the Legislature
and the general public on February 7, when
the generous hospitality of the Executive
Mansion will be manifest.

Our Sewing Machine, the "Davis Vertical Feed," is without doubt the leader for heavy
tailoring work. It is an assured success. For light family sewing it is without an equal, .
and for fancy etching and embroidering it is as far ahead of other machines as day is ahead
of night. Bemember we don't sell our Davis Machine through the medium of canvassers
at fancy commissions. You are politely asked that if you want a good family or manu
facturing machine the Davis can be had at our place of business only, and at prices that
suit. A written guarantee for five years given with each machine.
