There has been absolutely nothing since

an undisputed majority in Itotb bramhes
of Congress and their legislation could be
approved by a Republican Chief Executive.
HE BATS VEIty LITTLE.
This will doubtless be the policy adopted
by Mr. It red, although at the present lime
be is saving little or nothing, and the other
leaders are following his example. These
all agree lu saving that it is premature to
talk about what Congress will do until
the recommendations of the President have
been made known in his annual inessage.
There have been several conferences of Re
publican leaders, howe er, and it Is probable
tuat by the time the House is organised for
business, by the appointment of the com
mittees, a definite line of action will have
been agreed upon.
Mr. Recti realizes that if any attempt is
made to enacl general legislation during
i'eut In Ihe White House, and the f-tnate
nut firmly in control r the Republicans,
there will be little chance of getting any
thing through which will not meet the ap
proval of both the Senate and the Presi
dent, while at the same time there would
be grav e danger of factional illff rences in
tbe unwitldl) llrepubllcan majority In
There are already indications of danger
ahead on the tariff issue. Sotueof thelead
lng Republican members arc In fnvor of
making at least a show of parsing a tariff
bill of some kind. Mr. Dalzell of Pennsyl
vania, the second man on the Committee on
Ways and Means, who has been mentioned
for the chairmanship of this committee. Is
In favor of passing a tariff hill and sending
it over lo the Stuate, even though It nill
never be acted uion by that body.
Other leading Republicans, including
many of the men from the West, are In
favor of a bill which will place duties on
wool and some of the other agricultural
products made free by the Wilson law.
MR BAKER'S VIEWS.
As the Republican members or Congress
lowly assemb'e It becomes more evident
that tb preponderance of sentiment Is In
favor of enacting legislation for the pur
pose of increasing revenues Although
oplulons In this respect have been greatly
modified, belief lu tbe neccsslt of action
along this line prevails.
Representative Baker of New Hampshire,
In discussing the subject, sajs-
"It will be time enough to consider such
matters when the House has been organ
nlzed, Jti6tnow every member Is wonder
ing what his committee assignments will be,
aud until that is determined the) will not
give much attention to anything eLse.
"Ina general way I suppose wemusthave
some revenue legislation, and I should favor
Increasing the tariff rates in order to pro
duce the results desired. I think the House
should be tbe Judge of the legislation and
that the President should, in duty bound,
refrain from vetoing such measures as
might be passed. However, the Republi
cans have no desire to waste their time
In passing bills which cannot become laws,
aud so may restrict themselves to tbe
consideration of those measures only which
arc certain to receive llr. Cleveland's ap
proval." This view is precisely In line with the
Ideas heretofore expressed by Mr. Reed,
Col. nenderson and other niajoritj leaders
In the House, who have agreed ihat It
will be useless lo fritter away time In
enacting legislation to be used as an
object lesson or campaign literature when
It can at this time be of no practical
utility or benefit to the people.
But among tbe rank and file, as well
as the lenders, there are mariv vv ho since
their nrrival have modified their vlevvs
and will now oppose the attempt to pass
measures maleriallv changing the pres
ent law. They realize Ihe UKcIcssness of
attempting any general revision of the
tariff while Mr. ClcvcHnd is President,
and those members from the West and
elsewhere who arrived in the cltv a few
days ago, willing to proclaim from the
house tops the tariff changes they were
leady to insist upon, arc now assuming
a more moderate tone and are discussing
the chances of passing such revenue meas
ures as will supply the Treasury with funds
and at the same time be certain of the

ITS EFFECT UPON SATOLLI
Illness and Death of the Fope Might
Defeat His Elevation.
The Holy Father' Successor Would
Not Be Obliged to ilako a Cardi
nal Ont of the Delegate.
Mgr. Satolll Is more than ever on inter
esting public figure In view of the contin
ued reports of Leo's illness. If the aged
pontiff is really so 111 that the consistory
must be postponed, tbe proposed elevation
of the papal delegate will also be delayed.
If the pope should die before the conven
ing of the consistory, Mgr. 8atolU's pro
motion will then depend entirely on the
wishes of Leo's successor.
Prominent churchmen here say that If
Leo should leave a written statement that
he has nominated Mgr. Satolll as cardinal,
the next pope will undoubtedly honor his
1 his is pnrelj an act of courtesy, and not
an obligation, and In church parlance Is
cnlled a nomination lo cardlnalate re
served in petto.
Pope Leo's death under these circum
stances will make Mgr, SatoUTs case
analagous to that or the present pontiff,
then Mgr. PeccI, and Pope Gregory XVI.
Mgr. PeccI, in Mav, 1840, had been re
called from Brussels, where he had ably
performed the functions of papal nuncio,
and was on his way to Rome to uttrud the
consistory which would create- him car
dinal. When he arrived In the Eternal City
Gregorv . who had been ailing for some time,
was on his deathbed, and the cardinal-candidate
never siw him alive.
Although Gregory had nominated Pecrl
In the consistory of January 10, 1816,
and according to the usual custom In these
cases, his nomination was reserv ed in petto,
It was not until December 10, 18B3, that
Gregory's successor. Plus IX, saw fit to
carry out his designs.
So the illness of the present pontiff has
unusual significance to Mgr. SatollL If
the consistory Is postponed, his prepara
tions must necessarilv be suspended, and,
according to the present outlook, the solemn
ceremonies which were to hav e occurred In
the Cathedral of Baltimore on December 12,
may ncv er be witnessed In America.

the entire forenoon in Justice Cox's court,
tbe attorneys ri quiring that amount of time
ror the presentation or their arguments.
Prior to Ihcopeulng of the legal batteries,
the court passed upon the Instructions
prayed ror. Those asked by the derenso
were granted only In part, the one for a
verdict of not guilty being refused. Those
granted are in effect as follows'
The defendant, either as an individual of
asagent, has the right tosell and buy stocks,
grain, or provisions, although the same may
not be in his possession at the time of mak
ing the contract, nnd although he has no
means or expectation or obtaining the same
except by going into tho open market.
The prayer ror Instruction to the cfrcct
that I Tin good faith the defendant Intended
to comply with the terms of sale, verdict
should be not guilty was refused.
BURDEN OF PROOF.
A further instruction printed was that
the transactions In evidence is prima facie
valid and legal, and to rind a verdict of
guilty it must be shown beyond reasonable
doubt mat at me time tney were entered

not engaged In legitimate spccukitious, was
placed upon the government.

substance that if the jury shall finS that

be bought and sold, but only that they
should stake money on the differences In

a wager should be laid upon the pros

such wagers were laid the place shall be
classed as a gambling establishment and

It was also a part of tbe instructions
that whether the defendant and his cus
tomers intended to gamble upon tbe rise
and fall in stocks Is not determined by
the contract entered into.
IT WAS GRANTED.
A siecial instruction made was, in effect,
that if the defendant, for himself or others,
maintained an office In Washington In
which he conducted business ostensibly as
a broker in stocks; if his principal business
consisted of transactions in which ho was
nominally emploved to purchase and sell,
but which it was not expected by cither

were not expected to be bought and sold,

such transactions are gambling transac

Bonnie's Husband Lost 3,7(10 on
His Way to This CityV
He Stopped In tho Monumental City
and Got Drunk Trying to Aid "
HI Brother. "'
James Thornton, the varfcty reiformer,
and. as he is called In the 'three-sheet
poster, "Tho man who has set the world
asluglng." was expected to arrive In the
city this morning. The object of bis
visit was to sev his brothers, Tom and Jack,
who were glv en good long sentences In Jnll
some weeks ago by Judge Miller for se
verely cutting John Painter, thejproperty
man of the Elite Vaudeville Compuny. of
which Bonnie Thornton, he Wife of Jim,
is the owner.
Ever since his brothers were arrested
James Thornton has been trying' by book
and crook to see if he cannot get them out
in some way. Since their arrest-aud In
carceratiou he has made several trip? to
the city, but has always failed In bis mis-,
sion that of getting his brothers released.
One of them was sent down for six mouths
for the cutting of Painter, md the other
sentenced to lour mouths oh a charge of
threats preferred against him by Jim's
wife, Bonnie. For a long while after
the difficulty or the brothers Jim and Bon
nie did not get along well togtther. Jim
would have nothing to do with his wile.
Finally Billy Woods, the prize fighter,
managed to effect n reconciliation between
them, and everything has )een lovely for
sometime. JImisa very hard drinker, and
yestcrdajiatae stopped in Baltlmore'wblle on
his way here, to make another effort In be
half of bis Imprisoned brothers.
To help them out he disposed of his Inter
est in two songs and realized about" $2,700
from the sale or them. When, James left
New York for Washington be. bad In the
neighborhood of $3,000 on him He stopped
over in Baltimore and met spmo "profes
sional friends, and Willi them vislfcd many
saloons, and while be was In the saloons
Jim did nut drink water.
Thornton admits thatlie drankloo much.
After visiting nearly.all.of the saloons in
the Monumental City, Thornton thought
that he would like to get out Into the open
air, and when he did so, sat down on the
steps of a house on Thlrteenui street, near
the center of the city, nnd began to count
his roll. '
He asserts that be was counting over the
bills, when some one came up and grabbed
the notes and ran awny, Thornton is un
able to describe tbe man, but be did know
that two thonsand-dollar and; several hundred-dollar
bills were among those taken.
Thornton reported ths- matter tit the police,
but there Is very little chance-of any of the
money being recovered. 4

money from his Baltimore friends Jim an
nounced his Intention of. onoe more Irving
to effect their release. It ) Very doubt

IOWA SOLID FOR ALLISON
Millionaire Hawkeye Congressman
Gnrtis Fashes the Boom Along.
Personality of the Man Who Defeated
Walter I. Hayes Hun Way Ahead
ot the Landslide! Ticket.
George M. Curtis, the millionaire lumbr
dealer of Clinton, Iowa, wbefsucceeds Judge
Hayes as Represeutatlve from the Second
district. Is at the Normaudie. He is a
man of unusual Intelligence, great personal
popularity, aud does, not look a day over
thirty-five, although he pleads guilty to
being f if t) -one.
Mr. Curtis performed one of the most re
markable feats in connection with the Re
publican landslide of a ycarago this month,
having overcome a Democratic majority of
7,772, and still having 437 votes to spare.
He ran nearly 2,700 votes ahead of his
ticket. This all the more indicates the re
gard In v. hlch he Is held by his constituents,
as the District this year shows a Democratic
majority of between 4,500 aud -4,700.
Judge Hayes had served a half dozen terms
in Congress nnd his defeat was considered
Impossible. In speaking of Presidential
possibilities, Mr. Curtis said:
"Senator Allison will without doubt have
the solid and continued support or the
Iowa delegation to the next uationa! con
vention or tbe Republlcaan party. There
is no man who has as vet been mentioned
as a prob ible nominee who posv sses great
er strength in his own State than Mr. Alli
son. He will also be tbe first choice of
seve-ral rcigl-borms Stites, especially those
Ivlng to the westward.
Miineou will in all likelihood eland
by Senator Davis, and Illinois may present
the name of neuator Cullom, tut as against
olher eaiidMatcs their vote-s wojld event
ually be thrown to Mr. Allison. In addition
to this, the hena tor will be the second chulce
'of many Eastern States. Altogether be
will make a ver) creditable showing before
the convenllou, and his chance of. winning
Is not soj-emote as might be imagined.
"1 do not consider it probable that either
the head or tall of the Democratic kite will
come from Iowa. Ex-Gov. Boies is prac
tically dead n far as active politics is
concerned. His free sliver sentiments
have killed him with the sound money men,
and he cannot hope to control his own
State delegation ror either the Presiden
tial or Vice Presidential nomination."

Moat Intimate Friend of Cleveland.
Who Furnishes Illni Yuclits and
Other Things for Ills. Pleasure and'
Recreation, Says rtio President'
Health Is Shuttered.
New York, Nov. 27. When seen thlt
morning relative'to a statement published
in a mornlug newspaper, in this city,
stating that President Grovcr Cleveland
would never consent to stand for a third
term, Mr. F. C. Benedict, the Bread Street
banker, vrho was authority for the state
ment, said that In part tLe statement was
true, but in certain places it was made
"I am not pi stive that he would not con
sent to run for a third term," said Mr.
Benedict. "I am positive of nothing,
sav e death and taxes.
"To set tLe matter forever rigOt, I
will write what I have lo saj."
Mr. Benedict then penned the following
and handed It to the reporter:
"All that I have said or can say in refer
ence to President Cleveland's vlevvs as to
a third term is Inferential.
"1 Infer from what he has repeatedly said
that he is impatient to be rid of all official
cares and unwilling to have them prolonged
under any circumstances."
Continuing, Isr. Benedict said. "It Is no
secret to anybody who knows Mr. Cleve
land well as to his views on thU subject-
He bos been counting the months until h
enn be free of the trammels of public af
fairs. "He feels, and he told me o In fact, b
has told many of his friends so that ha
was a great fool to accept the Presidency
the second time.
"He said: "I have Lad enoogh of victory
and ilef eat, aud that Is all a mau can bava
in this world.'
"He has been like this ever since he to
tered upon his second term."
COUNTING THE MONTHS.
Here Mr. Benedict clenched his fists and t
shook them over Lis temples, relaxing hla '
fingers to tell off the mouths In panto
mime of tbe President, he hail jet lo serv.
Mr. Benedict then said. "He was foolish
be knows it in accepting a second term,
for be has often complained ih it his l.calth
was shattered until he wa hardly able to
stand it longer.
"Of course, everybody who know him
knows this so tt is no secret. I once said to
him: 'I am spoiling your chances for a
third term. I am tcllinj people you will
"He did. not seem much interested, and
said: 'Go ahead.
"Many of my friends have come to me,
many of them Republicans of standing, and
they said: 'He mu&t run; the country de-
inands It; he must give us a chance to vota
for hlm.' -I have Invariably replied:, 'I
don't think you will ever have a chance to
vote for him again and I tell you now, sir,
"I' dont think President Cleveland cantn.

"Have you ctct questioned the Presi

tlonT was asked.
NO QUESTIONS NEEDED.
"No," answered Mr. Benedict, "but you
don't always have to ask questions tn get
an answer; acts, words and sentiments
on collateral matters will scmetunrs an
swer." Mr. Benedict then, in confidence, told tt
reporter certain actions of the President
bearing on the third term question which
would tend to show that Mr. Cleveland will
not stand a fourth time ror the Presidency.
"Do-you agree with some of Mr. Cleve
land's enthusiastic friends that Mr. Cleve
land's duty is"plaln. that he should accept
the nomination next year?"
"No. I do not," answered Mr. Benedict,
"and I think that the claim made In cer
tain quarters tha t be be offered tbe nomina
tion because the Democratic party has no
better man. Is an Insult to him."
Mr. Benedict, in conclusion, said: "As
to being positive that Mr. Cleveland would
not accept a fourth nomination. I anr,
not; I do not think he will do so."
