Washington, Jan. CI
THK snrae topics which were he
fore c-onKres last week will
continue to engage its attention
during all of thlawek;iu the
Semite the repeal to the federal .'lection
laws and in the limue the tariff bill
There is one person, at least, who
balU with delisht the approach of the
ml of the tariff debate in the house,
aud who euters upon this week's work
with retiHweil zest for tho reasou that
it is the last to be devoted to the pend
ing mxvsure. That person i Repre
sentative W. L. Wilson, chairman of
the committee on ways and means, and
therefore responsible for the progress
of the bill through the house.
His has been a most predictions la
bor. Not only has the burden of the
parliamentary struggle ou the floor
been borne by him in large! measure,
but the demands made by any house
representatives of this or that interest
for clmnees in tho schedules of the bill
have engrossed his time and attention
in and out of the committee room, both
before and since the measure was re
ported to the house, so that neither bv
day nor night has he had an hour for
months that he conl 1 csil his own.
SCOAU ITEM TO BE DtSOUBSID.
When the debate clog'd in toe house
Sstnrday night there remained upon
tiie desk of Chairman Richardson,
seventy seven amendments, wnich the
authors desiro to offr for the action of
the home. The sujar item is to be
discussed Monday and coal Tuesday.
Three hours have been allotted to each.
Various amendment have been pro
posed to the present text of the bill.
The Louisiana members will seek to
retain the bonnry on sugar, failing to
increns the dntv, while Mr. Harter
will propose to make the duty on ai I
(irads of sugar 1 cent a ponnd and
ubnlisli the bounty.
Strenuous efforts will b- made to re
store coal to the dutiable list, amend
ment of duty ranging from 26 to CO
cents a bushel. An organized move
ment to ff-ct thia change has been
made and representatives of the trans
portation and mining interests have
been hard at work in Washington to
secure votes. Much effort has been
spent on the Republican representa
tives in this behalf, but, so far as can
be learned, without success. There is
very indication that when the bill
comes to a vote Jan. it will receive
the support of every Democratic and
Populist member, with possibly, at the
outside, half a dozen excepti'ins.
HAWAII IN THE SENATE.
In the senate there will ! a slight
relaxation of the programme in order
to permit the delivery of the speech on
our Hawaiian relations promised by
Senator t'nllura of Illinois. He is
expected to talk Monday or Tuesday.
The discussion of tue subject may take
an interesting turn nnd trench even
more upon tho time set apart for the
consideration of the election law repeal
bill, if eom- of the Republican senators
realize their expectations that the Tur
pie resolution declaring against foreign
intervention in Hawaii or a concurrent
resolution recognizing by legislative
act the provision d government of
Hawaii will be pre- I to the front.
Except by unanimous consent, how
ever, the discus-ion of Hawaiian af
fairs must be confined to the morning
hours of the week, nnd tho regular
topio for debate will be the elections

coast when tin Etnpressof Japan sailed
for America. Tiie viceroy of Bieobnan

The total fatalities will probably
reach into the thousands. Upward of

still alive when the memorial left the
Viceroy. The distress c iussd through
out Thibet bv the shock is bayond ex
aggeration. Famine threatens tho land
and the cry for bread is to all creeds
aud to all people. The greatest misfor
tune of all, however, is to the minds of
all devout Buddhist, that which has
befallen their aacrxl head- the holy
Shooihak. He is among the missing
from Lhsssa where the monsatery of
K-mis was, and the cirenmstances, al
though cealotuly guarded by the faith
ful for fear that knowledge of it might
render asundtr tho entire fabric of tun
ancient faith, is rapidly spreading
through all the eastern lands where
Buddhism is the religion of the masses.
The outcome is beyond calculation.
The shrine is a heap of ruins aud the
holy one missing from the earth. The
Lama in masteries of Huelyuau and
Kemis are situated in tho heart of the
civilizid portion of Tbibatand. For
ages the latter has been the seat of
Buddhism proper. The monastery of
Kemis was built, it is believed, about
one thousand years before Christ. Its
great, gloomy pile, it was thought,
would stand until the end of time.

upon Senator Quay, at his home Bea

with very positive views on Secretary
Carlisle's proposed issue of fifty mil
lions of new bonds and with no hesita

"I do not favor legislation for the
issue of bonds to relieve the treasury,"
said the senator, "and I believe that
any that may be issued without abso
lute authority of U.v should be re
pudiated. Thore should bo no cura
tive legislation. Takers of the loan
offered Feb 1. know that the securi
ties go out undera cloud and that their
redemption will be an important po

the revenues and re-establish tho gold

?ibley Won't Vote lor ths Wileon Bill,

WaSHIHGTON, Jan. 21- Some friends
of the proposed Income tax scheme
have abandoned all expectation of its
present adoption by the house. One
of them is Kepresentative J 13. Sibley,
of Krie. In his picturesque way he
thus discourses on the subject:
"1 am deeply touched bv the agonies
of the Metropolitan press in relation to
the income tax proposition, lhoy have
nearly worn out their c-r-a-n k and s
boxes of type in their eainpiign and
new names have been invented to us

ing Democratic member of tb house
from eastern states have boldly claiun d
that it the income tax feature was
made a portion of the tariff bill, they
would rate against and defeat the
whole bill. But, farewell income tax
for this year. Your friends are not
lacking, but your enemies have the
fortress and nil the Ammunition."
Mr. Sibley has spoken against the
Wilson bill at at present constituted,
aud lies also written to the Democratic
commits of Crawford county, offering
to resign his seat iu congress if after
consultation with the Erio county
committee thov shall doom that course
to bo for the best interests of the party.
This was in response lo a resolution
adopted by tho Crawford county com
mittee criticizing Mr. Sibloy for fail
ing to support the Wilson bill.
