This proposal by lluia now reiiresents
tlte transuion phase of .Russian diplomacy
and the real iiuiHirmncf of the com

with or without the co-operation of the

tributed to the movements which have
been made by Servia and Bulgaria toward
an offensive alliance against Turkey. King
Alexander or Servia will start from Bel

the way in which he has conducted the

offended the kaiser by his imprudent ex

he has strongly criticised the personal inter

The Senators of the United States last
night presented Vice President Stevenson
with a solid silver service, and a parch
ment scroll, as tokens of, the esteem they
bear him, and appreciation of his impar
tiality as a presiding officer.
The presentation was made in the rooms
or the Vice President, at the Kormandlc,
between the hours of G and 7. The com

Gorman, Hill, Gray, Faulkner, Bacon, Bnce,
Elkins, Jones or Arkansas, Wilson, Roach,

henators Hoar, Cullom and Blackburn
made the pt escalation speeches Senator
Hoar said, in part:
"Mr. Vsco President, a few of the mem
bers of the Senate, representing the de
sire and spirit or the whole body, are here
to ask you toacccpta slight, token of their
personal regard and their deep sense of
pleasure which they have had during their
association with you during the past four
"The office of Vice President is a diffi
cult, as well as important, function in our
f government. Not elected Vice President
by the body to which he belongs, not n
member of that body, it was at one time
a matter of grave doubt whether he could
exercise any authority over that body.
That matter has long been settled and
of all the Vice Presidents, many of them
illustrious in history, none have presided
over the Senate with such absence of
friction, and of anger, or conducted cur
business with more prudence and wisdom
than ha s marked our administration dunng
the past four years. Yours has been a
singular example of good government
government by good nature.
"It is, after all, a good thing to have
been Vice President of this Republic, in
the best days of its history. An illustrious
position to hold, and one which luis leen
conducted with honor by you. It Tvas
taid by an eminent historian that to have
been a consul of the Roman Republic
was enough glory for one man; but how
much more glorious to have been tha
Vice President of this Republic of 70,000,
000 freemen, and presiding officer of the
( greatest deliberative body of the world.
"Our ucartreit wishes ror your happiness
and future accompany you to your home."
Mr. Cullom referred to the character and
honor of the Vice Presidential office and
the dignity, patriotism, intelligence and
ability with which Mr. StcvV-nson had
performed Its duties. Be referred to the
renowned men who had filled that chair,
including John AdamS, Thomas Jefferson
ami George Clinton, and to how its present
occupant haB upheld Its traditions and
proved himself worthy of the esteem of
his countrymen and the members of the
Mr. Blackburn followed Mr. Cullom.
"More than forty years ago," he said,
addressing the Vice President, "we met
as classmates at the college In my native
State; more than twenty years ago we
met again in the halls of Congress, each
entering upon his first term in the House
of Representatives. Four years ago you
were elevated to the position which you
occupy, as Vice President of the United
States and presiding officer of the most
august deliberative tribunal on the earth.
Seventy millions of free people conferred
that honor upon you and the manner in
which you have filled it has proved you
worthy of their trust and confidence. The
members of the Senate could not
allow you to pass from them
without giving you some token of the
place you have won in their hearts.
"The service which they offer to you is
comprised of the most durable material
it was possible to find, and the tcroU
which I will present to you Is made of
parchment, whicli may endure for ages, but
durable as these materials arc the in
scriptions upon them of remembrance and
esteem are more durable still, for the
sentiments they couvey can never die."
Senator Blackliurn added that these testi
monials were given to him that In private
life they might be a source of pleasure to
him and lo his fissSy, to he handed down
hy them to future generations. As Mr.
Blackburn closed bis remarks, he presented
to tlie Vice President the parchment scroll.

he could trust himself to speak. His words
came slowly and were impressive in their
slowness. Be referred to the lesponsiblll
ties or the position he had occupied, and
said it was impossible to be insensible to
the honor conferred upon him. The elo
quent words of the gentlemen who made
the presentation, the testimonies of the
esteem which the members or the Senate
had for him, filled his heart to overflow

he said, "the past is secure. The asso

in presiding over a body famous in history,
can never be effaced from memory. From
the botuiiu of- my heart, r thank you all

yesterday morning of Pat Raedy's match
with Tommy Ryan, the fight to be pulled

was the occasion of a great deal of gossip

The World of Business
Wall street was a pleasant place for the
bulls jesterday and equally uncomfortable
for the gentlemen on the short side. The
tone of the market was strong and deal
ings fairly active, 85,894 shares being
traded in during the two hours of the
session. At first the buying was prin
cipally for the account of the shorts, trying
to hedge and get out, but toward the end
of the session commission houses were
prominent as purchasers.
The continued advance in prices yes
terday looked the most like a loom that
any Wall street movement has in many a
week. After the continual upward ten
denoy for the whole week the advance
recorded yesterday all over the board
were for 1-4 to a full point. The ad
vances for the week since Saturday, Feb
ruary 20, are all the way from one to
four or more points. This buying for
the long account Is all attributed to the
early adjournment or Congress and a Le
Uet that a higher range or prices will
follow the Inauguration of Mr. McKinley.

immediately after March 4. They often
come iu just this fashion. Remember,
that the election boom all occurred in the
two or three weeks before McKinley's elec

there was Tor months nothing encourag
ing In the market.
Prices on December 5 were lower than
those or November 5. The inauguration
boom is already a matter or several points

dicted it and reviewed the several suffi

must come. But too much must not be
expected of it. It Is good advice
worth taking not to carry your holdings
The favorites in the speculation j csterday
were Sugar, Burlington, St. Paul, Omaha.
Chicago Gas, Rock Island, and Northwest,
all or which sold at the best figures of the

It may bo said in general that everyone of
these stocks has the facts in its Tavor, which
should be good for even better figures
