It me, Dec. 20 —The Italian chamber
ofdeputiea was crowded today and much
intereßt manifested in the government's
declaration of policy. Tiie policy of the
ministry had been announced, a work
man named Angloetti, from the gallery
cried: "Thtlll a regular African kraal."
A scene of commotion followed, during
which Angloetti was removed from the
gallery by th 6 police, wildly shouting:

the pillagers!" "Death to public
The gallery evidently contained some
people ir, sympathy with the workman
for cries of "Let him alone," were heard.
Tbe vice-president of the chamber an
announced the resignation of Kignor
Zanardelli, and Crispi and other prom
inent members of the chamber of depu
ties, including that ot the Marquis Di
Hudini. Admiral Brin urged that the
resignations be not accepted, whereupon
they were rejected almost unanimously,
only a few Socialists pronouncing them
selves againßt the motion. Barzili espec

the resignations, as an expression of
sympathy toward him (Baizih), who he
said, refused to be influenced in the
choice of ministers by considerations

Crispi, in reply, eaid he wished to
avoid today a full discussion of the gov
ernment policy. He proposed to go to
work and repair the position of Italy.
He had not alluded to the foreign policy
of Italy, because he believed at present
internal questions affecting Italy were

his opinions upon the foreign policy of
Italy were well known. He desired the

Regarding Sicily, the premier re
marked, he recognized the fact that legis

him as saying England would rtquira
to be building 10 battleships within
the next two years, in order to main

laughed heartily and said :
"Well, I don't ccc that the matter

However, I will say if Gladstone studies

Two years from now France and Russia

San Francisco, Deo. 20.—0. F.
Crocker, vice-president of the Southern
Pacific, denies the published statement
that the directors of the company have
determined to put armed men on their
freight trains. He Bays the company
has not determined what course to

the Pinkerton agency has perfected ar
range menta to put gun fighters on
Southern Pacific trains, not only In
California, but Arizona, New Mexico,

New Yohk, Doc. 21.—The World this
morning sayß: With the cloae of tbe
year the affairs of the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe Kailroad company have
approached a critical stage, and with
the papers all drawn for that purpose,
an hour's work may see the system fol
' low the example of so many great lines
iin the near paßt, in slipping away from
j the assaults of pressing creditors behind
I the wing of the court, with friendly
receivers in charge. The death
of Banker George C. Magoun last night
will probably determine that result.
The fate of the road hangs on the decis
ion of the foreign security holders, and
their interests are concentrated in the
English house of the Barings, repre
sented on this side by Baring, Magoun
& Co. This Baring ia tbe head of the
firm, but George C. Magoun waß long
the head of the American house. His
knowledge of the intricate finances of
the Atchison system haß been most
thorough. It is in his office that Presi
dent Reinhart, with Magoun by his
side, decided on all financial questions
bb they aiose in tbe conduct of this
enormouß corporation, with its more
than 1350,000,000 of liabilities outstand
ing. With Mr. Magoun in charge,
the home firm of Barings felt
their interests in the Atchison were
well protected, and on his advice finan
cal help haß flowed in a very steady
stream from English coffers into the
Atchison's bank account. There will be
a meeting of the board of directors in
Boston on Saturday, and it is expected
some step will then be taken about the
mterept due on January Ist on
$350,000,000 of the general mortgage
bonds. If, as wae understood, this was
to be made up, in addition to the money
carried from cash to be advanced by the
Barings, vt_w#a not considered unlikely

further funds unless they were assured
that Mr. Magoun would be able to
supervise the financial policy of the
road in the future as in the past.

Tne ex-president wt'a a guest at a din
ner given in his honor by Thomaa May
Pierce at Bellevne this afternoon. In
the evening Mr. Harrison delivered an
address at tbe commencement exercises
ol the Pierce business college at tbe
Academy oi Music. The address was in
the main conlined to advice to young
men, but there were portiona of it which
dealt with public questions. Oi strikes
and labor agitation generally he said:
"It ia a sad and dangerous fact that
capital and labor are organized to tight
each other; that the laboring man ia
taught to regard hia employer as an an
tagonist, too often aa au enemy, and
that the greedy or vexed and impatient
employer, restive ol what he regards un
warranted interterence with hia busi
ness, is sometimes too ready to treat
workmen with a grievance as be would
treat a jolting, unbalanced machine —
throw it into the scrap pile. Like the
armed peace now maintained in Europe,
this system is costly and dangerous.
Every benevolent and thoughtful man
is anxious and distressed. I suppose
juat and perfect peace will not be estab
lished until the kingdom of the Eider
Brother is set up throughout tbe
world and the golden rule becomao the
law of human life. The right to acquire
is more importaut to the poor than to
the rich. Many reforms are weakened
by their exclusivenesa. The invitation
ie not wide enough. Men are put on
the other aide because of their sur
roundings or the color of their akin,
without a chance to make tbeir own
choice. It is a most wholesome and
saving fact tbat the working people of
the United Statee co generally reject the
teachings of anarchy. The workingman
is a producer; the anarchist is a de
stroyer, fellowship is impossible. How
ehall the poor be helped by the de
struction of other men's property or by
assassination or riots? When doors
are barred and tb» streets full of
tumult and nen'o Leartu full
of fear, ia there any harvest for
toil? There ia only one good thing
about these evil times, and that ie good
will. They give men an opportunity to
show concern for each other. The roll

how great the family ie. How many
idle workmen now ace it is not safe to
assume that employers' intereata and
theirs are wholly antagonistic, or that
one umbrella may not shelter both?
Ia not the conclusion too clear to escape

hard timea for the employer cannot be

Washington, Dec 20.—The Hawaiian
question was today disposed of for the
present in the senate when, after an
hour's argument, the message and the
accompanying documents were referred
to the committee on foreign relations,
and that committee directed to inquire
and report whether, and if bo, what ir
regularities have occurred in the diplo
matic or other intercourse between the
United States and Hawaii in relation to
tbe recent revolution in those islands.
The resolution for a joint committee
of three senators and three members to
examine and report to congress upon tbe
Maritime Canal company of .Nicaragua,
with the authority to visit Nicaragua,
waa agreed to.
Tbe senate also concurred in the house
resolution for a holiday recess Irom to
morrow until January 3, 1894.
THE FRYE RESOLUTION.
The reaolution offered yesterday by
Frye, calling upon the secretary of state
for information whether permission bad
been granted to any foreign cable tele
graph company to laud a line on the
coast of the United States since March
1, 1893, and whether such permission
had been refußed such company prior to
that date, was taken up and agreed to.
Hoar addressed the senate on the
Hawaiian question. He reviwed the
events in Hawaii up to tbe inauguration
of Cleveland, and said then there took
place a certain transaction which sug
gests to Americana the question, Who is
the United State 9of America? Who
represents in great national and interna
tional affairß ita purpose, its honor, its
policy as to foreign relations?
The question as to tbe legality of tbe
proceedings as to Blount's appointment
was a question which it wae the duty of
the Benate to deal with. Tbe president,
when he undertook to decide that ques
tion and withhold from the people ot the
United States what he was doing until
settled one way or the other, seemed to
have supposed be was tbe United States
of America, and whatever tbat phrast
meant, it was but a synonym for him.

other intercourse between the United

THE MILEAGE Qt'ESTION.
Cockreil reported the urgent deficiency
Peffer moved to strike out the item
allowing mileage to senators and mem*

dition of the country it was wrong for
senators and representatives to take
money to which their right at least wae
Dolph wished to remind tbe senator
that something had eecaped his atten
tion ; that no one was obliged to take
the mileage, and if the bill passed aud
tbe senator from Kansas or any other
senator had compunctions of conscience
aoout it, they could leave the money in
the treasury. After some debate, by a
vote of 12 yeas and 41 nays, the motion
to strike out waa rejected, and the bill

effect that, in view of the widespread
