By the United Tress.
Washington, Deo. 18. In the senate
today the house bill for the forfeiture
of railroad lands In cases where tli
road was not built within the time
fixed by the grant, although subse
quently completed and accepted by
the government, was reported back ad
versely from the commlttso on-public
lands and placed on the calendar.
was staled by the chairman of the com
mlttee (Mr. Berry, Dem., Ark.) that the
members of the committee stood Ave for
and five against the bill, but that one
of the former had voted for an adverse
report rather than have the bill die In
committee, and so that there might be
a vote of the senate upon it.
A resolution In favor of the politlca
union of Canada and the United States
was offered by Mr. Galllnger (Rep
UN. It.) and referred to the committee
on foreign relations with the suggest
ion mat this committee shall grant
Hearings on the subject.
An hours speech was made by Mr,
Hill (Dem., N. Y.) In favor of his pro
posed cloture rule the keynote of the
speech being that "an Inability to stop
.debate is an inability to legislate at
' He was followed by Mr. Hoar (Hep.,
juass.) who expressed his full agree
went with Mr. Hill's view of the necrs
BIty of a change of the rules In the
senate. The resolution went over with
out action till tomorrow.
The Nicaraugua canal bill was then
taken up and Mr. Turpie (Dem., Ind.)
continued his attack upon it, but had
not concluded his Speech when the
senate at 4.30 p. m. adjourned.
House Considers Currency
The debate upon the currency plan
proposed In the Carlisle bill, reported
xcom 'the committee on banking and
currency, was begun in the "house to
day, according to the notice given yes
terday by Chairman Springer. The
first speakers were Mr. Springer, (Dem
-in.;, cnairman or the committee on
banking and currency, in favor of the
bill, and Mr. Walker, (Rep., Mass.),
who advocated the adoption of his bid
which he said he would offer as a
substitute for the Carlisle bill. These
pentlement, recognized as the leaders of
the forces for and against the bill.
ppoke without limit and were listened
to attentively throughout by a large
proportion of the members of the house.
The bill which was before the house.
Mr. Springer sa(d, did not represent the
views of any member of the committee
or of the house In Its entirety. It was a
compromise moasuro, and submitted an
the best that could be hoped for at the
Proceeding then to explain the pro
Visions of the bill, Mr. Springer quoted
from the report of the committee to
show first what the bill required In lieu
of the deposit of United States bonds
or other Interest bearing obligations as
security for the circulating notes, as al
ready made public In his report. Mr.
Springer contrasted the provisions of
the bill for redemption, of notes of
failed banks with those of the so called
Baltimore plan, asserting that they
were practically identical in their ef
fect and extent. All the national banks
and bankers in the United States had
endorsed the Baltimore plan ns a safe
and desirable one. If this bill was en
acted into law it would improve our
financial system. It would not only do
this, but In his opinion, It would give
the United States the best financial sys
tem of any civilized country in the
Mr. Walker's Scheme.
Mr. Walker (Rep., Mass.) followed Mr.
Springer. He said that If there ever
iwas a case in which bread was asked
and a stone given, a fish asked and a
scorpion given, It was In this instance.
Our banking system was so faulty that
it was costing the people thirty millions
of dollars merely for the machinery of
loaning capital after they had paid the
Interest. Entering upon the question
of redenmptlon of note.s Mr. Walker
said he wanted to get back to the Jack-Bon-Benton
Democratic platform of
Compelling the banks, In return for the
anehlses granted them, to maintain
,t their own expense the parity of
helr notes with gold. Under the oper
ations of this bill, Mr. Walker said,
ithe losses from failed banks In the past
thirty years would have amounted to
$8,000 an Infinitely small amount Mr.
Walker referred to the provisions In
his bill which would relieve the treas
ury of the necessity of redeeming notes
In gold, and said that gold in the treas
ury served only one purpose, that of
redeeming notes. It did not even meas
ure values directly.
In conclusion Mr. Walker said hls.blll
provides for the appointment of a com
mission consisting of the five leading
tankers In the live principal redemp
tion cities, who shall give the secretary
of the treasury advice and counsel in
all matters relating to the financial
matters of the government. This was
a measure of relief to the secretary that

The timber land of the state Isn't
decreasing as fast us one might believe.

share of the output from No. 2 colliery
The Lehigh Valley effors Tiave been
successful and from today they will be
awarded between 150 und 200 tons a dnv
of the No. 2 colliery's output.
A rich find has been made at the Phil.
adelphla and Beading company's Hast
colliery, near Big Mine Run, which
gives to that mine a new lease of life.
The colliery was originally owned mid
operated by Emanuel Bast. The
methods formerly employed in develop
ing the mine made it Impossible to
work the east side above 1,000 yards In
extent, and it was abandoned years
ago. The Buck Mountain vein on the
west side was worked to the limit, and
the prospects for further work seemed
bo poor that many of the minora went
elsewhere for work. The comnanv in
the meantime prospected in various
places, but without success. A tunnel.
5 yards in length, .from the west side
was driven some time ago, but It opened
into me Muck Mountain vein, which Is
inferior. A gangway was then driven
eastward 1,000 yards, and another tun
nel, the same length as the first driven
me company was rewarded w4ien the
workmen broke through the rock Into
the long lost coal deposit known as the
Mammoth vein. This vein ranges from
thirty to sixty feet In thickness and
Is of the finest In quality. An official
of the company stated that with such
resources as the Hast colliery now has,
it is the richest in the mining region
and will provide work for hundreds of
men for many years to come. The
breaker will be Improved and rejuven
aieu to prepare the output. -

New York, Dec. 18. During the early
cession at the Stock exchange the market
was quiet almost to stagnation. Chirago
Gas was the only stock on tho list that
snowed any signs of life and It advanced
over a points to 71. Little or nothing

of business, howover, was at the expense

portunlty to create uneasiness because It
was Impossible to obtain from the sub-
treasury olilcials the actual amount

TO OUR PATRONS."
Wushburn-Crosby Co. wish to assure their many pat.
rons thut they will this year hold to their usual custom
pi milling S'IRICTLY OLD WHEAT until the new crop
Is fully cured. New wheat Is now upon the market, and
owing to the excessively dry weather many millers are
of the opinion that it is already cured, and in proper
condition for milling. Washburn-Crosby Co. will take
no risks, and will allow the new wheat fully three
months to mature before grinding.
This careful attention to every detail of milling has
placed Washburn-Crosby Co.'s Hour far above other
brands. ' 1 , t '

prices that warrant us in expecting a large
share of the trade :
