The victors to the White House today
were limited in number, anil those ho
called, did ho principally to pay their
perainU respects to the President. There
was a notable absence of political atmos
phere about the building and a calm pre
vailed that must have been exasperating
to expectant officeholders who have been
for months waiting decisive action In re
lation to their applications.
The President received Secretary Root
early in the day and had an extended con.
ference with him about matters relating
tojhe War Department and army appoint,
cients. Senator Wctmore of Rhode Island
talked with the President for about fifteen
minutes relative to some local appoint
ments, and Senator Trjc made a social call
of less time.
The Representatives who saw the Presi
dent were Curtis of Kauaas, Waters of
California. Lanhum and Slav den of Texas.
Tayler of Ohio, and Lacy of Iowa.
All of the Representatives said that they
had called simply to pay their respects,
and that politics and legislation had not

The cards for the reception have all been

Preparations have been made on this ba

n OMcllll lteport on the DisenMe la
Hawaii Ilecelv ed.
Surgeon D. A. Carmichael, at Honolulu,
II. I . has telegraphed the department here
tinder date of December 20. via Victoria,
B. C, December 2S. that there are "two
cases of reported bubonic plague at Hono
lulu; two deaths December 12. No new
cases to December 20. Quarantine against
infection raised December 13."
Surgeon General Wjman, in referring to
the despatch, said he did not consider the
situation critical in any respect. He said
also that Honolulu had a competent board
of health, and he had no doubt it would
proe equal to the occasion.
l)r Wyman said the Pacific Coast ports
had been notified and that for the present
no measures would be resorted to beyond
the exercise of ertra vigilance on the part
of the health authorities. Mail advices to
San Francisco from Honolulu indicate that
conditions are not very alarming. Five
deaths have occurred, oue native and four
Chinese, since the disease first appeared.
A quarantine svstem for island veasefe,
was established and a district practicall)
co-extensive with Chinatown was put In
quarantine. Volunteer inspectors were
filled lor and the work of cleaning this
district was at once begun The next day
the Nan. .val Guard was called out and has
fclnce been doing duty, guarding the quar
nntlned district Chinatown, the seat of
the trouble, is now undergoing a thorough
cleausiug, and it believed that the scourge
has been stamped out.
It Is thought the germs of the plague
were brought from Kobe. Japan, on the
Norwegian steamer Thyienla, which arriv
ed at Honolulu November 2S, with i00
President Dole, while realizing the seri
ousness of the situation, does not believe
there is much cause for alarm. The Presi
dent thinks there is no danger to those
whose houses, persons, and food are clean.
Some claim that the disease is not the
black plague. Public opinion Is divided
alto. Many believe that if the plague were
prefect In Honolulu the inhabitants of
Chinatown would be carried off by the
hundreds on account of the filthy condition
of the district. Another interesting phase
of the case W the fact that no Japanese
have bo.n attacked. They live in large
uumbers ill the quarantined district.
The Sixth Artillery has been quaran
tined against Honolulu. There are 200 men
at Honolulu. Thej are conflued strictly to
camp and not allowed to visit any other
ulace. The National Guard has instruc
tions to arrest any artillerymen found in
town. This Is at the request of Major
Colonel Beck, of the transport Warren,
decided to heave her anchor at about noon
on December 16 and steam away for Ma
nila, leaving only inland boats In quaran
tine The time limit for development of
tho plague had not elapsed since the men
of the Warren were on shore, and all over
the Infected district, but the surgeons on
board the vessel had some doubts that it
was the plague. If cases develop the War
ren will not be far from port and can put
SWORN IN FORMALLY.

Justice Ibrnard, who was nominated on
Oitobcr 1, by President McKinley as an
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of

The condition of James Hall, colored,
who was shot in Linden, Md , last night
by John Lewis, a colored storekeeper of
that place, was improved today. He Is in
the Emergency Hospital with a bullet Im
bedded In his groin. It is probatrc that

likely to recover.
The shooting of Hall Is said to have
been accidental. Hall has stated that at
the conclusion of a friendly boxing bout
between himself and Lewis, the latter
playfully o!nted a revolver at him which
was discharged. Hall fell to the floor
with a. bullet hole In his left side, where
upon Lewis and several friends did every
thing possible for the wounded man and
finally brought him to the city for treat

THE BIO GRANDE CLAIM:.
Ileelsinn Iij (lie Comptroller of the
The Rio Grande Railway Company re
cently filed a claim with the Auditor of the
Treasury for the War Department for
f3.fi5C.S7 for transportation for the Govern
ment during the month of April, 1S?S.
The transportation was for six officers,
126 enlisted men. 130 horses, 3S mules,
20.000 pounds of freight and 2." wagons
from Price. Utah, to Chattanooga, Tcnn.
The Auditor allowed but 2.569.72 of the
claim and the railway company appealed
to the Comptroller of the Treasury, who
today rendered "a decision that makes a fur
ther reduction in the claims of the com
pany. He allowed but Jl.729.54.
The railway company will probablye take
the matter to the courts.
THE ICELAND TELEGRAPH.
Horoiie General Interented In the
Northern Europe is generally interested
in the movement to establish telegraphic
communication between Iceland and the
Continent. United States Consul Victor
E. Nelson, of Bergen, savs in a letter to
the State Department.
"The line will be especially valuable in
assisting in meteorological observations,
the various observatories thus being ablo
to obtain dally telegrams concerning the
state of weather in Iceland. It often hap
pens that storms from the north sweep
over Europe without previous atmospheric
indications of their approach.
"The mala question at issue, however.
Is-laying the cable. It will be C50 kilo
metres (403.S'J miles) in length, extending-
between Iceland and the Shetland:,. The
Northern Telegraphic Company, of Copen
hagen, Denmark, has to lay this cable
under the following peculiar contract:
"The Icelanders shall pay to the com
pany a yearly subsidy of $t.IS0 for twenty
years: Denmark Is also to pay a yearly
subsidy of $13,400, and the neighboring
countries are requested to contribute an
aggregate sum of $91,430; thus, together,
the interest included, an amount of $1,
407.000 Is desired by the company. Un
doubtedly this business would yield n fair
profit, as the usual price of laving a sub
marine cable is not higher than $1,200 a
sea mile, and. according to this figure, the
cost of laying the proposed line would rot
"Apart from the .Jready mentioned
benefit to meteorology the cable will also
be of particular service to Americnu, En
glish, French, and Norwegian fishermen,
who carry on their trade on a large scale
In the neighborhood of Iceland."

The jear in the' stock market ended with
a continued and persistent strength which
may be said to have' been almost as much
a surprise to the .Street generally as the
continued break of two weeks ago was.
Up to the close of business today there
had been an uninterrupted advance all over
the list lasting for more than a week.
It need not be said that such an advance
is remarkable. The gain made from the
low prices of the Friday before Christmas
has been all the way from three or four
points in one or two of the slowest secu
rities to 20 and more points in some of the
most active industrials. The prices rjeforc
the panic two weeks ago have been re
gained in many, if not a majority ot, cases
Today's business was small, the holiday
spirit pervading the entire session and
few important changes were recorded Thc
top prices for the week were reached,
however, and that at the close of the day.
The bank statement was good, but not
Important and had little effect on the mar
ket, except perhaps to prevent some real
izing that might otherwise have occurred.
The figures were as follows: Reserves. In
creased $781,000; loans, increased $372,
S00; specie, decreased $4SG,20O; legals. in
creased $1,103,000; deposits, decreased
$148,000; circulation, increased $45,000. An
increase of cash is shown and a further
increase In reserves, but both items are
insignificant They do show, however, that
the condition of the banks is Improving
slowly despite the exports of gold.

vestors wllllnc: to buy securities at the be-
ginulng of 1300 who were afraid to do so
at the end of 1839. The coming year will I
be a orosperous one for the country with-
out doubt. All the commercial agencies, !
all the railway returns, and the statements
of the industrial companies show this.
Following on two years in which improve
ment has been rapid in all lines it is cer
tain that these conditions make the Intrin
sic value of securities now much greater
than It was a year ago or six months ago.
As for the technical conditions, the great
disbursements cf interest and dividend in
January, and the buying of securities to
discount the higher prices that will fol
low, should force a further advance in the
v ery near f nture. It seems probable, how
ever, that some recession from today's best
level may occur before this advance begins.
Tactile Mall was tho buoyant stock on
the list today. It advanced to 46 1-2. a
sain of 2 points or more, and a total gain
from the low price of 11 1-2 points. The
boom in the stock from the low level wes
expected, and many bought It around the
low price ot Uic movement. Same doult

this advance, on the theory that the s b

NEW YORK. Dec. 30. The prominent
feature of Ruland B. Molineux's ikfenco
will be that Mrs. Katberine J. Adams was
not poisoned. She died, according to the
claims which will be made by the coun
sel for the defendant, from natural caue.
Mrs. Adams, the dcfince v III claim, en
tered her home the night before her death
in an iuiovicated condition. She came
home, according to the testimony of Cor
nish, with her daughter Florence Eva
Dr. Hitchcock, who attended Mrs.
Adams, and Drs. Phillips and Coffin, who
subsequent attended Corpl'h. have tes
tified to these facts: In neither patient
was there salivation; in neither patient
was there bleeding at the nose; in neither
patient was there a physical suppieion.
The same conditions were true regarding
the hypothetical ""A. D." (Garnet).
The defence expects to prove that in all
cases of mcrcurypolsonlng there must ba
a salivation, a bleeding at the nose, and a
physical suppression. Attorney Weeks will
also endeavor to prove that Cornish and
Mrs. Adams had both been on a debauch;
that the stomach of Cornish was empty,
and that "A. II." was known as a man ad
dicted to bad habits.
Cornish snore veeterday that when Mrs.
Rogers asked him fur the broino-sellzer
her mother had a wet towel wrapped about
her brow. Dr. Hitchcock has sworn that
there was a Lelchlug of gas from Mr.
Adams. Drs. Phillips and Coffin have
sworn there was a belcblug of gas from
Cornish. Dr. Phillips has sworn there was
a belching of gas from "A. U." As many
physicians as arV necosary will be iniro
duced to swear that such symptoms are
inconsistent with mercurial iroisoning.
They will take the witness stand and
testify that these symptoms are charac
teristic ot acute gastritis superinduced by
fasting while partaking of alcoholic stimu

A SURE CUKE FOR CROUP.
Twnl-.fe Years' Constant
Without a Failure.
The lint indication of croup is borae
ness, and in a child subject to that disease
it may bo taken as a sure sign of the ap
proach or an attack. Following this hoarse
ness is a, peculiar rough cough. If Chamberlain's-
Cough Kemedy 1, given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, it will prevent
the attack. It Is used in many thousands
of homes In this broad land and never dis
appoints the anxious mothers. We have
yet to learn of a single instance In which
it na-s not proved effectual. No other prep,
aratlon can show such a record twenty
five years' constant use without n failure.
