The senate finance committee Tuesday decided to iepi rt adversely Senator But ler’s bill providing for the distribution of the balance of the fuud of $500,000 appropriated for the payment, of the di rect tax collected in South Carolina. It has been agreed by both factions in the house that a bill to rep- a! the Sher man silver law will be considered on the 9th and lOtli of February. Several of the free coinage men announced that, while they were willing to debate it, they will filibuster agamst i s passage unless it can be amended to suit the views of the free coinage democrats. The senate spent four hours Wednes day in executive session discuss’ng the nomination of Louis McComas, ex-secre tary of the national republican commit tee, to be associate justice of the supreme court of the District of Columbia. When It came io a tote IK re was no atiempt to filibuster, the vote Et Hiding 34 for con firmation to 13 for opposition. Because of the failure to adopt the usual lesolu- tion notifying the president of the con firmation the result was not formally an nounced at the conclusion of the senate. The republican caucus Tuesday after noon decided by a majority vote to take favorable actioD upon the admission of the territories of Oklahoma, Utah and New Mexico, but left Arizona out in the cold. This result was not attained until aftir a prolonged discussion. The cau cus was called in pursuance of a request signed by Senator Dubqis and several others of the northwestern seuators, and was devoted entirely to a discussion of the proposition to admit these territories to statehood.

The legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill for the fiscal year 1894, as reported to the house Thursday, makes an aggregate appropriation of $21,677,- 998. beiug $222,134 less thaD the amount carried bv the bill for ihe current fiscal year, and $947,817 less than estimated. The bill specifically provides for 10,616 salaries, being 118 less than the number provided for in ’he law for the current year. Department clerks who now work from 9 to 4 o’clock are hereafter to work 8 hours a day. The old fight between the house and the senate over clerks to sena tors at $6 a day is to be renewed, the committee leaving this appropriation out of the bill. Money for Pnblic Building*.

All the pepers relating to the resolu- ' i r, offered by Mr. Burrows, proposing an ii vestigation of the whisky trust, have bceu referred to Mr. Reed, one of the republican members of the commit tee on mlcs, to look over. The demo cratic members are not inclined to re port the recommendation for bd investi gation, preferring simply to refer it to the judiciary committee for considera tion; but }f Mr. Reed states that he be- ves an investigation will lie ordered, is likely that this course will be adopted.

The most serious t fleet of the extreme cola weathei south is the practical stop page of traffic by water. This was felt unfavorably most conspicuously at Balti more and favorably, probtbiy, at Birm ingham. Ice in the Ohio and Mississip pi rivers s'opped shipments of l’ittsburg coal, so that export and other require ments font New Orleans and Mobile, present and prospective, have been met at Birmingham with Alabama produce. No boats have left Memphis and Nash ville and trade there, except at points reached by rail, as elsewhere, east and west and south, has been mate rially restricted, isavanuan aud Charles ton report low and unsatisfactory prices for naval stures, due to overproduction, but that the producer and dealer are ar ranging to restrict the output and stiffen prices. At Chattanooga iron industries are rea sonably quiet. At Augusta the cotton mill prospect is good, but not equal to that of a year ago, owing to higher prices for cotton, while clothes have not advanced in price proportionally. While R chmond’s general trade is of good value the movement oi produce, particu larly tobacco, has been checked by tbe cold weather, while iron, foundries are unable to meet demands from a like cause. Georgia fa'mers, Atlanta wires, are raising more cereals and will continue to have to buy less, while higher prioes for staples and improved financial conditions cause New Orleans merchants to extend credits a little more freelr. PUBLISHED WHAT DUN SAYS. Dun’s i’view says: Tbe volume of do mestic trade continues larger than last year, but exro*V* are decidedly smaller from New York; in ’breo weeks of Jan uary $8,592,861 below t-.6 same weeks last year. As imports are meaawb'.’i® very heavy for two weeks of January, $8,919,130 more than, last year, the pros pects of further gold exports canses no turprse. 'Ihere is much hesitation re garding the action of congress on vari ous measures and the uncertainty about silver purchasis. The repeal prospects of the aDti-option bill and the defeat of the interstate commerce act influenced the markets and trade to some extent. Tnere is also a somewhat general in crease in complaints about collections, al though money at nearly all markets is comparatively easy and in supply ade quate for legitimate demand-. Con fidence regarding the future of business is in all parts of tbe country remarkably strong and general, especially in view of the interest taken in pending measures id congress.
