New YORK, Nov. 12. It is stated that
President-elect Cleveland has already be
ijun to think about his cabinet. All fore
casts so far printed have made Mr. Cleve

be minister to England. Mr. Cleveland
had among his callers yesterday General
Patricb-A. Collins of Bostou, who saw
Mr. Cleveland en Thursday also. This is
regarded by many as indicating that Gen
eral Collins is in the ranks of cabinet pos
sibilities and close up where the band is.
Don IL Dickinson is taking a rest after
his campaign. Mr. Dickinson said yester

Since the announcement of the can

with his present position, and that Mr.
Murphy would be senator if he wanted to
There is" increasing interest in the future
relations of Mr. Cleveland and Senator
Hill. Most of the latter's friends when
questioned say that they know nothing
whatever about it.
The Democratic headquarters are still
nominally open. The campaign com
mittee will conclude all business next
week. It is said that ex-Governor Camp
bull is sure of a reward after March 4.
Chicago, Nov. 12. A local paper has
the following: "William C. Whitney of
New York, will be premier of President
Cleveland's second administration. Ben
jamin J. Cable will be teudered the naval
portfolio. The foregoing statements aro
made ou the highest authority and come
directly from the president-elect to a gen
tleman now in Chicago and high in the
Washington', Nov. 12. The informa
tion comes here very directly, and through
a reliable channel, that Mr. Vhitney will
probably accept no office under the now
administration. Mr. Whitney prefers to
be the heir to the throne, and he believes
lie can do a great deal more to promote
his presidential aspirations in private life
than m office. History has shown that
cabinet officers stand a very poor chance
of becoming presidents. While in private
life he will be hand loose and foot loose to
manage things with a view to 18li6. The
lever that controls the New York machine
is now in his hands, and he is not going to
let go of it.
THE NEXT SENATE.
WAsniXf.TOX, Nov. 12. On the 4th of
March, IS'J'3. twenty-live seats iu the
United States senate becorie vacant. It is
now evident that the Democratic party
has captured enough of the vacancies to
insure its supremacy in the senate, re
gardless of almost any possible combina
tion between the Republicans and the
People's party. Assuming that Montana,
California and Wycming will send Demo
cratic senators here, the Democrats at the
beginning of the Fifty-third congress will
have as many senators as the Republicans
and populists combined, and thus would
be able to orcanize the seutvre by the cast
ing vote of Vice President-elect Stevenson.
It is reasonably certain, however, that the
Democrats can rely on the support of some
of the populist senators in any of their
projects, whether for the removal of the
present force of Republican employes or
the revision of the tariff. Of the twentv-
five vacancies on March 4 tho Democrats
will name tho occupants of thirteen, tho
Republicans of nine, and the populists of
three one being Senator Stewart of
Nevada, who has gone from the Repub
lican party. Tho Democrats lose no seats
they now hold and gain five seats oue
each in California, New York, Wisconsin,
Montana and Wyoming. The populists
gain senators from the Republicans in
Kansas and Nebraska, besides Senator
Stewart iu Nevada, who will succeed
SENATOR SHERMAN TO RETIRE.
CIXCINVATI, Nov. 12. The Tinier-Star's
Washington correspondent says that he
learns from unquestioned authority that
Senator Sherman ititends'to retire soon to
private life, and that tha senator desires
to have Secretary Charles Foster for . is
successor. Speaking of thcae statements
Ihf p pcr says:
"ThiN story seems quite probable, in
riew of the fact that the senate will be
Democratic, The incredible part of the
llory is that he desires to have Foster for
his Mipcsor. The Ioicnl consequence of
Senator Sherman's retirement will bo the
election of ex-Governor Foraker to the
vacancy. Secretary Foster will have little
support from this part of the state."
THE HErORT DENIED.
Washington. Nov. IS. Senator John
Sherman this afternoon denied that he
was going to resign his seat in the senate
la favor of Secretary Foster.
MORRILL ON THE RESULT.
NEW York, Nov. 12. Senator Morrill of
Vermont, speaking of the result of the
recent election, 6aid:
"The Democratic victory seems to bo
complete. In my opinion it is best, under
the preseut condition of things, that the
victory should be complete. I want the
Democratic party to have full charge of
national affairs, inasmuch as the victory
is theirs, and to take the full responsibil
ity. There will be nothing to prevent
them from carrying out the policy they
b.ive been advocating, and if they do this
everybody can see how the chnnge will
work. There are many manufacturers
nud employers who of late vears have
como to think they can get along better
without a tariff, or with very little pro
tection. It is possible we have carried the
principle of protection near to the ex
treme limit. At all events, I think it is
uita as well that the other side should
have an opportunity to make a practical
test, of their ideas.
"I think they will begin by taking the
duty off wool, and probably off coal. I
hardly think theie is any danger of an
outright repeal of the .McSinley oil,
There will very likely be a Mib&tituu?
measure adopted which, I expect, will Ik
of a speckled character. There are manv
industries in strong Democratic states iii
the south, for instance, which absolutely
require protection, and the people of these
states will bring the necessary influence to
bear to get it.
"The silver element ia the party is
strong enough to pass a free coinage meas
ure, and the only protection there will be
,aainst this will be Mr. Cleveland's veto.
There may be an effort made to set rid of
a few hundred thousand silver dollars by
unloading them ou the bondholders.
"I hardly think they will interfere with
the pension list just yet, though there is no
doubt that the party is hostile to the pres
ent measure, which calls or $130,000,000
annually. To have left this item at about
$125,000,000 might have been better any
how. "As to state bank issues, I think they
will be brought along under Democratic
government. The repeal of the tax is the
only thing necessary, and the south is
strongly in favor of it."
DEPEW AND PLATT.
New York, Nov. 12. Chauncey M. De
pew was asked what he thought of a state
ment made by ex-Senator Thomas C.
Platr attributing the defeat of the Repub
lican party in New York county to him
Tn reply Mr. Depew said: "Brother
Piatt objected to my takiug an active
management in the campaign. He said:
'Brother Depew, you are a good orator and
are good enough to make speeches for the
party, but you must not do any managing.'
Brother Plait thinks I am an amateur
when it conies to politics. On the other
hand he believes, and so do I, that he him
self is an expert and experienced poli
tician. It was therefore agreed that
Brother Piatt should manage the cam
paign. He was allowed the task of run
ning the machine, and I was put off at
speech-making. Now Brother Piatt is a
sbrewd and competent engineer, and ran
the machine as well as it could be run.
He did all the work in the city and state,
and did it better, perhaps, than, any one
could have done it. But then, as he was
managing and conducting the machine, I
don't think he can lay the blame for the
collision ou me.
"We just ran into a landslide that was
it plain and simple. Brother Piatt was at
the throttle, and wide awake, too, but he
could not avoid the accident. The engine
simply plunged into tue obstruction and
we ouht to know the result. Early in the
fisht Brother Piatt insisted udoq mv con-
lining myself to orations instead of engag
ing actively in tue machinery department.
He preferred to do this himself, aa he had
had more experience, so I went forth as a
speaker. Between us we evolved the end.
The result could not be attributed to any
one person or party of persons. New York
alone did not effect the result. It was the
whole country. The people wanted a
change of policy more than of individuals,
and they will have it. They want to try
free trade because they think they will
get clothing cheaper. They will have every
opportunity to try it, 1 hope.
"The Homestead strike also affected the
voting. It came on right in the beginning
of the campaigu and operated against
President Harrison. There has been a
good deal of talk about Mr. Carnegie and
Mr. Frick. Now we charge Mr. Frick with
having voted tho Democratic ticket. I de
clare that he did not contribute to the
campaign fund, nor did Mr. Carnegie."
HIC, 'RAH FOR GROVER.
CnicAGO, Nov. li The Chicago Demo
ctats painted tho city a deep crimson hue
tonight. To the number of 40,000 the sup
porters of Cleveland and Stevenson pa
raded the streets in honor of their party's
triumph. It had originally been intended
that Vice President-elect Stevenson should
review the parade, but he was unable to
be present, and John P. Altgeld, recently
chosen governor of Illinois, reviewed the
parade from the balcony iu front of the Iro
quois club house. The successful candi
date was greeted with wildly enthusiastic
cheers as the faithful marched along.
After the review by Judge Altgeld sn.cn of

tors. SPRING FIELD. Ills., Nov. 12. The Demo
crats of Sangamon county this evening
ratified the election of Cleveland, Steven
son and Altgeld. Twenty thousand vis
itors were in the city. An immense pro
cession of the marching clubs of Soriug
field, Jacksonville and other towns
marched over a route several miles long.
The fireworks, decorations and illumina
tions were the finest in the history of the
city. Vice President-elect Stevenson was
Kansas City, Nov. 12. The Democrats
of Kansas City, reinforced by Democratic
delegations -from surrounding towns in
Kansas and Missouri, celebrated the re
sult of the electioti tonight. They paraded
the streets, blow tin horns, made other
noises and burned a quantity of powder.
The parade was reviewed by Governor
Francis and Governor-elect Stone, wno,
later in the evening, addressed a big
crowd in the U lgw.ira.
PAYING THEIR BETS.
Philadelphia, Nov. 12. "I bet on Har
rison and lieid," was the legend iu red and
blue chalked on a large placard which
decorated the front of a hand organ, and
attracted quite a crowd on Vine street
this afternoon. The stylishly dressed
man who turned the crank was William
Nelson, who had agreed if Harrison lost
to play a hand organ in the streets of this
city for six hours, and on inauguration
day to go to Washington and play in front
of the reviewing stand as the parade goes
John Jjeithead, toreman of Engine com
pany No. 9. of Germautown will sit as a
target until WiUiamJ Bennett, a hoseman,
throws four dozen esgs at him. Xi-dthead
will occupy a seat on a water plug in front
of the company's building and Bennett
will do the throwing from a distance of
thirty feet. The leading Democratic politi
ciai s of the waid h.iv ben invited to wit
uess the performance.
Wheelbarrows have been so numerous
on the streets in fulfillment of bets as to
attract little attention, while barefooted
men (otherwise fullv dressed), men with
faces half shaved, and other peculiar losers
Bosto:., Nov. 12. One of the most
unique bets in the present campaign was
settled at Walthnm today, when Harry
Bicknell, a young man well known in that
city, jumped fully dressed into the Charter
river and swam around for a few niintes.
Last night Henry Austin, who weighs 2t0
pounds, enjoyed a wheelbarrow ride from
Dedhain Center to Readvillc, nearly three
miles. Robert Fulton, a Republican, fur
nished the muscle to 'propel the wheel
barrow. On next Monday Charles Hawkins of
Dedham Center will walk la kwards to
Norwood and return to payan election bet.
The distance is eiht miles.
John Shelton of Belmont Hill last night
wheeled another party all over town in a
wheelbarrow. A drum corps, a number of
torch bearers, and dozens of small bova
helped out the performance.
CLEVELAND AND CARLISLE. .
New York, Nov. 12. Among the numer
ous callers upon President-elect Cleveland
today was Senator Carlisle of Kentucky.
Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Carlisle were in
consultation two hours. It is understood
that they discussed iu a seneral way the
possibilities of the reforms to be accom
plished by the next congre-s. Mr. Cleve
land expressed a desire to see Speaker
Crisp, aud it is expected that he will be
here next week. It i-. proposed to begin
the new administration with a thorongn
understanding between the leaders, and
whatever legislation may ba brousht up
will be carefully discussed before it is pro
posed and enacted.

Berlin", Nov. 12. At concurrent meet
ings of the Centerists in Bavaria, Baden
and Wurtemburg a well nigh unanimous
sentiment against the army bill was
expressed.- This attitude of the Center
ists has shattered tha confidence of the
ministerialists in tha reichstas in the ac
ceptance of the measure. The Centerists
papers have again changed their tone.
They have reverted to their former denun
ciations of the bill, aud not a single oriran
of the Center party now advocates any
thing but uncompromising hostility to it.
The popular opposition to the measure is
also urowing among the people, who are
becoming more and more alive to the fact
that the bill will entail upon them finan
cial burdens, by raising the price of to
bacco, beer and spirits. Tne disclosure of
the fact that Prussia is financially embar
rassed, taken with the proposal of Dr.
Miquei, the Prussian minister of finance,
to lev a tax on capital, has contributed
to a revolt against the government's
financial policy generally.
The general situation is so menacing to
the ministry that it has given rise to re
ports that tne army bill will be delayed
long enough to be revised before it is in
troduced into the reichstag, and that
Chancellor von Caprivi will he obliged to
resign in the mean time. These reports,
however, are entirely without foundation.
The bill has been passed by the bun
desrath, without alteration except a few
verbal changes iu the preamble. Chancel
lor von Caprivi will introduce it in the
reichstag on the 24th inst., aud if it is de
feated he will resign. In view of the
chancellor's shaky position, the political
groups are already discussing the question
as to who will be his successor. Count
von Euleuberg, president of the Prussian
council of ministers aud Prince Iloheulohe,
stadtholder of Alsace-Lorraine, are the
EUROPE'S MILITARY BURDEN.
Frankfort, Nov. 12. Finance is grad
ually getting the better of politics, and a
decision between them must be coming on
npace. With a debt of 4,000,000,000 rubles,
an unredeemed note issue of about an
equal amount, and a several years' deficit
of something like 500,000,000 rubles nlso
uncovered, Russia has again failed to raise
the contemplated loan in France. Ar
dently as they may wish to play off Rus
sia against Germany, the French decline
to loan money to their ought-to-be ally
in ii is straits. As the London and Berlin
markets are likewise closed to them, it
follows that the Russians have got to be
pacific or else play some trick if they wish
to try and make thiugs square. Though
better off, Germany and France, to say
nothing of Austria, Italy and tho minor
fry, are following in the wake of the tot
tering cz.ir. Nothing daunted by a deficit
of 50,000,000 marks, the German govern
ment proposes to add about 100,000 men to
its standing army at an outlay of 100.000,
000 marks a year, so formidable au in
crease being required to restore the mili
tary equilibrium between the triple and
dual alliances. Germany, as Italy and
Austria, are losing breath, thinks herself
obliged to bear the brunt of the day and
do alone what her friends are avowedly
uuable to take a hand iu. A few figures
will elucidate this strain put upon Ger
many in consequence.
The Germ.m population, now standing
an exodus ot SOO.OiK) a year, has increased
23 per cent within the last twenty years.
Of the 25,000,000 males included in the
51,000,000 inhabitants, about 8,700.000 be
tween 20 and 45 years of age are liable to
serve in the arniywneu called out. Under
the new bill rather more tuan 01)0,000 are
to be kept constantly underarms, all able
bodied men being now foi the first time
placed in 'the ranks. This will Ciiise tue
cancellation of 100,000 exemptions hitherto
annually grauted for reasons of economy.
If this is a fearful tax to bear in times of
peace, the burdeu will ba incomparably
augmented during war, when, with an
annual recruitment of 2S0.000 men liable
to erve twenty-four years iu line and re
serve, the army, after allowing for deaths
and invalids, must be estimated at about
6,000,000, or two-thirds of all able-bodied
males iu the prime of life.
The present figure of 4 300,000 was con
sidered the acme of military effort com
patible with the continuance ot civic life;
the future total suggests no longer au
army, but au armed n.uion, on the pattern
of. the ancient Teutonic tribes whau on the
warpath. What was natural enough
2.000 years ago is the reverse iu these
modern times; what was a spontaneous
effort ou the part of primitive triuas, re
joicing iu dealing and receiving death, is
leltau accursed affliction upon a pacific
race bent upon defense only, and threat
cued by French vanity and Russian sav
agery. Nevertheless, looking upon things
from a purely arithmetical point of view,
aud drawingiuevitable conclusions there
from, it is hardly to be wondered at that
the leading military writers of Great
i Britain should just have combined to
compile a volume ou the chances of what
they represent as "the immediately im

Chicago, Nov: 12. At a meeting of the
general passenger agents of the western
roads today.it was agreed that no commis
sions would be paid, hereafter to agents of
connecting lines in Excess of." the amount"
regularly authorized by the western-Passenger
association, and that no street com
missions, or commissions to 'brokers,
should be allowed on the sale of tickets at
any point iu the territory of the associa
tion. This agreement, however, was
reached without a- fall representation- of
all the lines interested and cannot become
effective until unanimously concurred in.
Chairman Caldwell was instructed to com
municate with the absent ones, including
the Chicago and Alton, foe the purpose of
securing their signatures to tho agree
ment. All the indications now point to a large
attendance of general passenger agents at
the msss meeting to be held in Chicago on
Nov, 21, to consider rates and arrange
ments for the world's fair. Numerous re
plies to the call have already been receiv
ed, and the railroad systems of all parts of

understood that the question of rates will
cut less of a figure than tha subject of
facilities for handling the business. Eve

must be left to the several associations,

that they were glass-blowers. Inspector

cow was discovered there was some doubt
as to the uature of the disease, and it was
not until the animal had been inoculated
with Koch's tuherculine that a positive
conclusion was reached. This is tue first
occasiou on which tuberculino has been
used here. The veterinary surgeons are of
tho opinion that new light has been ac
quired, whereby tuberculosis can now be
diagnosed beyond the shadow of a doubt.

To the Republicans of Kacsas :
'"The battle is over, and in onr defeat we
have won a great victory. The combined
opposition, with its leaders hungry for
spoils and a majority of sixty thousand
behind it, could barely win the state
ticket and the legislature. The Republi
can party never before contended against
such odds in any state in the Union with
apy hope of success, and to the Republi
cans of Kansas full credit is due for their
earnest, united and magu'ficent efforts.
Thejra have been no divisions, but, on the
contrary, every loyal Republican has
stood shoulder to shoulder with his party
fellows for the good name of Kansas, and
our defeat can in no way be charged to
their negligence. An enormous majority
has been reduced to almost nothing, aud
victory has been so nearly achieved that
for-several days there has been doubt as
to the result.
"When we consider the states which
have been removed from the Republican
column in the struggle just concluded, the
remarkable gain we have made is the
more pronounced. The battle has beeu
fought by Kansas Republicans alone, with
practically no assistance from outside
sources, aud to Kansas Republicans alone
is aue tue credit. We cauiiot close our
work without extending our thanks to
Republicans all over the state for their
ethcieut work and very intelligent advice
and judgment. Hud we won the victory
if, would have been yours. It seems, how
ever, that we are defeated; but to the rank
aud file of the Republican party all over
the broad plains of Kansas belongs rhe
credit of almost annihilating a majority
which in other states would have been
deemed impossible to overcome. For the
next campaign we have 160,000 intelligent,
earnest, loyal and energetic Republicans
in line, and anxious only for tho battle to
begin. Respectfully yours,
"J. M. Simpson, Chairman."
"Fbank L. Brown, Secretary."
THE KANSAS COUNT..
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 12. Dispatches
this morning from county seats where the
official couuts were made yesteiday indi
cate sweeping reductions in the majorities
claimed for Lewelling by the populists.
In thirteen counties the average reduction
was thirty. This ratio. carried to 106 coun
ties would reduce Lewelline's maioritv to
3,000. The alterations do not materially
change the Republican figures, and their
headquarters have been p'ractically desert
ed. It is impossible to get definite returns
of the vote for the constitutional conven
tion. No returns will be made until the
vote is canvassed by the state board on
There is now no doubt whatever of
Lewclling's election for governor of Kan
sas. Secretary Brown of the Republican
state central committee said at noon:
"We have heard from over fifty counties
ou the official count, aud there is uo hope
for us on governor."
The legislature is close, but the Repub
licans seem to have a majority of oue or
two majority on joint ballot. There are
two ties for representative one in Coffey
nnd the other iu Linu couuty. Harrison's
official majority iu Shawnee couuty is
THE KANSAS POSTOFFICES
Atchison, Kan., Nov. 12. Ex-Governor
Glick said to a reporter today: "The
Democrats of Kansas were too badly used
by tho Republicans to permit any Repub
lican postmaster to remain in oflice any
longer than arrangements can beperfected
for his removal. Nearly every postmaster
who held office iu Kansas at the time of
the election of Mr. Cleveland iu 1SS-1 was
permitted to remain until the expiration
of his term, uucler an agreement made
with the Kansas senators that the Demo
cratic appointees should serve out their '
full terms. Tin's agreement was deliber- I
ately violated in niuety-uiue cas out of a
