FROM THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
JFrom Our Own. Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 17,1902.
Senator Perkins. o?3 California, is
one of tho Republicans who openly re
fuses to be controlled by tho adminis
tration in his attitude toward. Cuba.
He says this country hos already spent
in behalf of Cuba, during and since tho
war with Spain, $300,000,000, and that
it ?3 under no obligation to grant Cu
ban sugar and tobacco planters turill'
concessions at the expense of our own
farmers. Mr. Perkins said: "While 1
do not believe that we owe Cuba any
thing, and while I believe that if wo
once commence to afford assistanco to
the island we will never end, lam will
ing to vote for aid, provided it is not at
the expenso of one.or two classes of
producers in tho United States."
Democrats are pleaded at tho seem
ingly well founded report that the Re
publican members of tho Senate Fi
nance Committee have about decided
that the bill repealing all the war tax
es, which recently possed^bhe Houso
and is now before that committee, shall
be cut to the extent of $30.000,000 or
$25,000,000 before it is reported to the
Senate. In other words, that one
fourth or more of the war taxes shall
be left standing. If the Republican
Senators will only live up to this re
port, tho last vestige of doubt about
the next House being democratic will
be wiped out.
Democrats are beginning to discuss
the organization of the Democratic
Congressional Campaign Committee
which will manage this year's tight for
tho control of tho next House. Repre
sentative Richardson, of Tennessee,
the democratic floor leader, who was
chairman of the committee two years
ago, is again mentioned for the posi
tion . Representative Griggs, of Geor
gia, is also being put forward as a suit
able man for the place; also Senator
Clark, of Montana, who has ber i chos
en as-a member of the comn M'teo to
succeed Mr. Kenney, of Dela? .- .re. It
is usual to have some Senators on the
committee, but not usual to give the
chairmanship to a Senator, although it
has been done. Influential Democrats
from the Middle West are trying to get
a man from their s ection made chair
man, on the ground that the fight is
likely to be hottest there.
Representative Ryan, of Ba?lalo, N.
Y., says the charge of corruption made
by the Democrats against the Buffalo
Republican municipal officiais has been
fully proven, and that the evidence is
not all in. The situation as summed up
by Mr. Ryan stands thus: The city
treasurer is under arrest, charged with
grand larceny, and the full extent of
his defalcation ia still in doubt; the
j sheriff was removed by Gov. Odell for
neglect of duty; the deputy county
clerk has been sentenced to the peni
tentiary for three and a half years for
increasing jurors' vouchers and appro
priating the money to his own use, and
even the coroner has been brought into
Court charged with robbing the dead
at the morgue. Mr. Ryan thinks these
thing-, riake it certain that Buffalo will
elect democratic city officials at the
With oqly one dissenting vote the
Senate adopted the joint resolution
proposing a Constitutional amendment
changing inauguration day from March
4 to the fourth Thursday in April. Sen
ator Stewart cast the lone vote against
the resolution and;gave as his reason
that to change inauguration day to
more balmy weather would increase
the crowd and the military show at in
augurations, which might be danger
ous in ease of a disputed ' election, like
that of 1878. Mr. Stewart said that he
thought the inauguration of cur Presi
dent waa already too much like the
coronation of a King, and that he had
salway s been glad when bad weather
reduced the attendance.
Senator Hoar, in a tilt with Senator
Platt, of Connecticut, over the Philip
pine policy of the administration, said
of some of Gov. Taft's statements: "I
have learned to trust men, even the
greatest and the best men, not by what
they say, but what they do, and when
Gov. Taft says that the Filipino peo
ple want independence, and says at the
same time nobody shall express the' 1
desire abovo his breath, I distrust his
opinion and look for evidence of the
fact. When ho says that people are
enjoying American freedom, when ho
promulgates a law which at the samo
time makes it a penitentiary offense to
read the Declaration of Independence
on thu Fourth ol'July, I confess lam
very little impressed by his judgment
and very profoundly impressed by his
Representative Bell, of Colorado, has
a'bill before tho House Ways and
Means Committee that the Republican
bosses could not stop if 'there was a
chance for a record vote in it. It pro
vides that national banks that have
deposits of government funds exceed
ing ?5,000 a month shall pay interest,
not exceeding one-fourth of 1 per cent,
and not less than one-tenth of 1 per
cent, a month on the same, the depos
its to be made with those banks which
offer the highest interest. Mr. Bell
has been looking over the booka of the
Treasury. Ho finds that a few favored
national banka now hold government
deposita amounting to $116,000,000, up
es ^rhich so interest whatever is paid, i
Speaking of his bill, Mr. Bell said: j
"Under my bill the Secretary of the1
Treasury iu designating depositories
for public moneys shall cause the mon
ey to be deposited in the nearest safo
deposit whero tho collections aro made
to avoid, so far aa possible, a plethora
of money at one or moro places. I know
tho bauks that have Government niou
oyon deposit will howl against tho
proposition tb require them to pay in
terest', but if tho Government would
offer to distribute ita deposits amoug
tho national banks ott'erjug tho largest
premium, there would bo no lack of
bidders. I do not know what action
tho Ways und Means Committeo will
take in rofereuco to my bill, but I feel
oonildent that tho ahb)oct will como up
in tho House for debate beforo a groat
It is now charged by thoso represent
ing American augur growers'that? tho
Cuban sugar growers have pulled tho
wool over Gon. Wood's eyes, and that
instead of making and selling sugar at

making a profit. Those who mado tho
charge have invited tho House Ways
and Means Committeo to sond a spec

Tho committeo engaged in preparing
the River and Harbor bill has decided
that it shall not carry more than $00,

Celebrated Their Tin Wedding.
Editor Intelligencer: Tho event of
tho season, was tho verdict of all who
were so fortunate as to attend tho "tin
wedding" of Dr. aud Mrs. Burt Mitch
ell at their beautiful homo "Halo
hurst," Friday evening, Feb. 14,1003,
Over an hundred invitations had boen
sent out to friends and kinfolks to par
ticipate in the glad event, but, much
to tho disappointment of all, when tho
time arrived a keen northeast wind waB
blowing, heavily laden with fast fall
ing snowflakes. Nothing daunted,
over Hf ty braved the element?, each
one bearing the genial Doctor and his
charming wife some token of their af
fection and good will in the shape of
tin. If they should bo so fortunate as
to live to celebrate their g' Men wed
ding, the Doctor will not be called on
to buy any more tin. They have
enough and to spare.
Tho hostess, becomingly gowned in
pink albatross with real lace, was look
ing her best as she mixed and mingled
among her guests'with the ease and
grace so characteristic of her. The
good Doctor affirmed that hefeltjnst
as young and good-looking as he did
ten years ago, and as we looked in his
genial, beaming face, we could but feel
that time had, indeed, dealt kindly
The presents were numerous and
costly. Among them we noticed a solid
silver syrup pitcher and plate, eight
pieces of genuine Delf enamel ware,
aluminum doily rings, souvenirs of the
Pan-American Exposition, Japan wai
ter, one set ivory handle knives, silver
waiter, bread box, copper bottom tin
coffee pot, two tin tea kettles, crumb
tray and brush, several silver cups and
many other things too numerous to
mention, such aa cupo, milk cans, wai
te rs, ay rup pitchers, vases, hand mirrors,
picture frames, ladles, egg beaters,
bucket dippers, pans, cups, &c, &o.
A unique reatare of the entertainment
was the registering) of all the guests in
two tin hearts, faced with ruled paper
and beautifully decorated.
After games and music the guests
were invited into the spacious dining
room, ablaze with light and tinsel dec
orations, whore elegant refreshments
were served, consisting of crackers,
salads, pickles, cheese-straws, fruits,
cakes and ices.
The happy occasion will long bo re
membered by all present. Guest.
