The i.iee-siiy for ihe p!iat;c of the Ding
h y bill at the -hoit es-ioti is growing
-tioa-er every day.
T.ie government is running behind each
ni"i,!h, aire idy the deficit for the pres
em tiH-.ti year is over $10,000,000. Five
in -Liiiis ot'ihat yaar are just gone. Seven
no 'i t mouths anil the total shortage would
r.ach ? 1 Hi 000,01 '0. It will then be bond
, c ntier bond sue.
R. publican Sou itors are wakiug uj) io
tli'.-laet. Tliey are getting in trim lor
i he i am us to be held this w eek. Then
tliey wiil try to decide on a course. If
po--:b!e the Dingley bill is to be passed.
In the other case, the silver Senators arc to
be placid on record so clearly and plainly
ih it t ! i e entire country can phtce the
blame ami place it fit once.
Senator Cullom of Illinois, appreciates
the .-i'u.ttion. He sees that the Republican
p oly i- in a piettj bad rtx. It must help
liie country, aud it has not control of tbe
Senate. 1 1 the short session cannot pass a
aaa-nre like the Dingley bill, he sees but
little hope of a tariff bill being passed at
the extra session. In a talk yesterday with
a Time- representative, he said:
'I have cot talked much ubnit what
will be done at the short Session. There
stems to be a diversity ol opinion among
he R publican Senators, and I thought
.1 best t- wait until we had met and could
have a ehancj to talk oyer the situation.
Something must be done to meet th
dili eicy in the Treasury. Oi that there
is no doubt.
Same of ns th nk that tht: election of
McKinhyaul the restoration of conti
dei c will boom tilings so much that
enough revenue will be received to title
us over our trouble and until the tarifl'of
today f .n be revis-d. I do not know how
this wiil !, but I hope it is the case. I
want to see the tariff revisxl as it should
"Iu the n.f a :i time I know that we ate
running behind. The quieke-t way out
ot the dirhYu'dy would be to pa tbe
'Dingley bill. Than while the mi-.fi' was
b. ing ii t l-ed t.-is mea-ure wou'd siiil be
in loice and wuaid b.uiii u- in sufficient
rcvenui tcia eet our i blig.-itious
'Rut I do not know tha'. we c in pass
the Da-oVy hill. It will just depend Oil
. he st oi. I our silver fiieuds take. Tin y
have the in joiity now and Can do as
they ph -ive. If they are inclined to Tight
:t out for -liver, why we cannot do a
' 1 i i n ir. h the oiher hard, if thr-y are
:ni hnt-d lo iel the will i f tlu people be
supreme in the lua.tei there will be no
T can only see trouble ahead of us in
the m xt Senate, too. We have not a
m .j 'l ity. ami any tari tl' measure brought
t'dcTe it will have to be passed either by
act- silver or gold Democratic votes."
"Supposs neither the Dingh-y bill nor
a revision of the tariff can be passed, what
: hen, Setiatoi
"Nothing but bnd issues," was the
reply , ' and they will be suicidal. I think,
iheiuh. the Secretary ol the Treasury
should have auih : iiy to borrow money
ii ndi 1' ia t tain conditions, and I would
like to m e such a nn-a-iire ou the statutes,
lint I bop loi i he best an i iru t we will
l,.,ve uo u.oie borrowing."

them do. But the shv.-teis are biiniiini; tlis- 1
grace on the profession and soim thmu has j
got to be tlone. It has long beeu ihe idea i
of many of ihe honorable patent lawyers
to have a Patent Bar, with si net iu!es of
practice to protect the inventors, and
Something ol the kind will have to be
done or Congress will Lave to be appealed
to for legislation on the subject.
Surut'ise was expressed .vhen it wa
announced that Mr. Cleveland had bought
a residence in rriuceton, N. J., as no
whisper that any such thing was ou foot,
hail preceded the aunounci ment. Ti t re
is now a rumor said to have Im-u stai'nl
by a member el The family of a pn.miikni
official that President Cleveland will I c
Come connected with the law faculty ol
Princeton l uivcr-ity. It is said that tin
whole thing was fixed up during the re
cent visit of Prc-sidfcu. and Mis. Cleveland
to rrinte'.on to attci.d the Coiltge celebra
tion. The Senate chamber has been thorough
ly overhauled since Congress adjourned,
and cow looks much beiM' ihau it has
looked since it was built, and unlets th
sanitary engineers are oil' hi their calcu
lations, it will be mors coiafoi'tab.e, ow in-
j to apparatus for maintaining au even
J temperature, and moie healthful betause
it is constantly supplied vv ith pine, liedi
air. Among the changes that are notice
able to even the most casual ob-t-rver aie
the handsonu opera chairs which have
taken the place ol the oiel wot d benches
iu ihe galleries, andthe unifoimity iu th
Seuatoi 's chairs, no w all squar.; btcketi
leather covered, with mahogany lrame.
Hen i oldie it has been the custom ol each
Senator lo exercise h s iudivi. uai taste in
the selection of the chair he uss.l, without
regard to vvbethet it pleated air body else
or not, and the result was rather a mix
ture. For ihe first lime both the Scuau
and the House are iighietl by ekctriciiy.
That is about all ihe improvement made
hn the House chamber which now looks
shabbier than ever eompaied with tbe
Semite chamber. But the S'euu'.e al ways
was incline I t be more luxuiiou.
th;in the House and many ascribe it to ihe
ditl'i rence iu the method of electing Rep
resentatives aud Senators, the first having
to give an account to iheir coi stitu nis
every .wo years, ami the last only once in
six yeais, il at ail.
There are various reason ; which hive
earned Ohio politics to occupy a hug'
shaie of the political gossip iu Washing
ton. Chairman Ilauna wants to go into
ihe Senate, instead of into tbe Cabinet,
according to gossip, and he is coming to
offer Senator Sherman the Secretaryship
of th'.' State in the McKinley Cabinet iu
t xchange for bis seat iu the Senate, the
uuderstauding being that (!ov. Bushuell
a-i 1 1 appoint Mr. Ilanna to the vacancy at
once if Senator Sherman will resign. Th
pr ucipal obstacle to cirrying cut this
plan is that Senator Shermati also prefers
tht Senate to the Cabinet and that he
hopes to be elected to another term in
1898. It is not thought that Senator
Sherman will agree to Mr. Raima's prop
ositian, unle-s he can be bulldizrd into
doing so by being convinced that he can
not be re-elected to the Senile, and
whether he can or not is the question
now agitating the Republican politicians,
because upon it depends the make up ol
the Cabinet. Mr. Shcrn-an says he knows I
nothing about such a plan.
