The absorbing topic among Republican
politicians in Washington just con- is a
story told In Capitol circles to the effect
that Senator Foraker has unearthed a
deep laid plot on the part of Representa
tive Dick of Ohio to have him Foraker
turned donn for re election that the
young Akron lawyer may don the toga
of his former good friend Mr Foraker
is said to have accused Mr Dick of
tnachery when he discovered ths plot rnd
when the matter came to the cars of Mr
Hanna he promptly gave notice of a sev
erance of all relations with the former
lieutenant colonel of the Eighth Ohio Vol
unteer Infantry
Since the close of the campaign Mr
Sick has been conducting a political bu
reau in this cit is it said Kith Dr Hls
Eey looking out for tho Ohio end
This was thought strange by many but
it was explained that the expenditure of
money and the continuation of work was
necessary to close up the affairs of the
national campaign It has since been
learned it is caid that all business of the
late campaign was long ago settled up and
the books balanced
It wa again pointed out that Mr Dick
had no use for a bureau here as his
term as Chairman of the Ohio Republican
Committee expired when the headqjjrters
at Columbus was closed Within the last
few days it has been discovered it Is
said that Mr Dick used the bureau and
its agents to complete his organization
In his own Interests and against those of
Mr Foraker and the alleged good of he
party in Ohio
Mr Forakers friends claim that Mr
Dick is playing into the hands of the
Ohio Anti Saloon League to effect the
defeat of the Senator An agreement Is
alleged to hae been made whereb tho
anti saloon people are to favor Mr Dicks
candidacy
Common talk at the Capitol has It that
Mr Dick named legislative tickets to be
put up in a number of counties to defeat
Mr Foraker
When Mr Henna learned the alleged
facTs he at once placed Mr Dick on the
black list it is said as for ionic time he
has been losing his fatherly affection for
the Buckeye Representative Senator
Foraker has cluays stood too stanchly by
3lr Hanna and the Administration for tha
RepuMicin hots to allow him to be retired
and it 13 reported that the Chairman of the
Republican National Committee is indig
nant about the secret movement
To defeat the Dick plot Mr Foraker will
demand and receive The formal endorse
ment of the State convention and Mr
Hanna has promised that his collcag ia
shall name his own campaign manager
and State committee officials as the Re
publican boss dd In 1ST To prevent a
deadlock in the Legislature the old or
ganization vwll be effectually repaired and
Mr Dick is said to be slated to go
Mr Hanna is reported to have sharp
ened bis axe and in the event of such
s hlng as great strength being developed
r anti saloon people Representative
eior will succeed Mr Foraker

CONGRESS MEETS TOMORROW
The lIopUlnM ltripiinrtlonmrit Hill
Inj lie Culled Ijp on 3Iondn
Congress will reassemble tomorrow It
is thought that there will be lltle show
of enthusiasm and that tho arduous and ac
tive work of tho sesMon will not be re
sumed till Mondfly though one or two
general appropriation bills may be intro
duced directly after the Houe meets The
District of Columbia and the Naval Ap
propriation bills were practically ready
for presentation to tho House nhtn the
recess was taken on December 21
It is considered ilkeli that Friday will
be given over to the consideration of pri
vate bill reported from the Committees
on Claims and War Claims The only spe
cial orders on the House Calendar are those
which direct that pension and claim bill3
shall be considered ou alternate Fridajs
Mr Hopkins Chairman of the Commit
tee on Census may call up on Mondoy the
Reapportionment bill reportt d by the ma
jority of that committee Then will come
on for consideration the Durleigh and
Crumpacker bills It is thought that the
discussion of these bills ma consume a
week though there seems to bo no doubt
In the minds of well Informed public men
that the Hopkins bill will ba passed
Tho Burleigh proposition which is to
increase the membership of tne House to
35 win be supported as a rule by the
delegations from those States the repre
sentation of which under the Hopkins
bill would bo reduced A majority of the
Democrats will embrace this bill first be
cause it offers an agreeable solution of a
question which promised at one time to
involve the House in bitter partis vn and
sectional strife and because leaving out
of the count the so called doubtful States
the Hopkins bill wauld provide for a Dem
ocratic net gain in the eiccforal college of
one vote whereas the Burleigh bill would
mean a Republican net gain of four
The Crumpacker bill to reduce the- rep
resentation in the House of those States
which have restricted suffrage and which
is aimed directly at North Carolina South
Carolina Mtsslrsippl and Louisiana it is
understood will have hut feeble supiori
It will furnish tho text though for sever
al strong partisan ppeeche
It is believed that the Reapportionment
tho District of Columbia Sundry Civil
and Naval vpproprlatlon bills will provide
material for long and animated contro

OUTLOOK FOR THE CANAL
Ilfflit Uetiieen liirtlMin of Hip Two
Routes Crust n Warmer
The struggle between the friends of the
Nicaragua Canal and the Panama lobby
is dally waxing hotter and the officials
of the French corporation are more hope
ful than ever before M Hutin President
of the Panama Company has returned to
Washington and seems well pleased with
the outlook He stated last night that
there was one chance in twenty of the
United States purchasing the equity of the
Panama Company in the- uncompleted dltth
ana that his corporation was net greatly
concerned anyway since in the event or
refusal by this Government and the
avowed determination to cut an American
fortified canal through Nicaragua and Cos
ta Rica the company was assured that
Irance Great Britain and Germany would
combine in a guaranty of the bonds of the
corporation and enable it to finish the
work Thus would M Hutin and his col
leagues get their monej back with in
terest
Just how much fact there Is behind this
statement cannot be determined at pres
ent but it is believed by many Senators
Mr Morgan stated that even were Great
Britain to accept tho amended treaty it
was very likely tMt the great European
Powers would form a league and open an
international canal as a matter of safety
The Chairman of the Senate Committee
on Inter Oceanic Canals Is firmly opposed
to tbe United States purchasing the Pan
ama ditch even thouith almost certain
France Germany and Great Britain
ire It He demands an American
and owned by this
Sr Hi- hat the Panama Canal

and these will ai i r
Iar The Panama dlu
ed down with obligations i i
eminent should never assi
is jttcr to spend from -
20000000 and have an A
free from complications and
mu canal
indebted-
ness
Several other Senators hold that there
is only a chance of the European nations
combining against the United States by
completing a neutral watcrwaj unless
Great Britain should reject tho treaty and
the Senate were to abrogate the Clayton
Dulwer compact when It is regarded as a
certainty that all Europe would scramble
to get In at the completion of the Panama
ditch
I am of the opinion ihat the Senate will
rass tbe Canal bill some time in Februa
ry said Senator Perkins yesterday The
Impression seems to have gone abroad that
the United Slates cannot and will not do
anything toward canal legislation until
England is heard from This is not cor
rect for I know that the Canal bill will
be cailed up In the Senate by Mr Morgan
In due time at this session without ref
erence to the Hay Pauncefote Treaty and
frcm what I have heard the bill will be
passed
The measure will be held back until
the end of January purely out of courtesy
to Great Britain in order to give i cash
able time for the consideration of the
Hay Pauncefote Treaty but the Senate
does not Intend to wait on tbe pleasure
of Lord Salisbury as there la nothing re
quiring the treaty making body to hold
the bill In abeyance pending ratification
of the convention and it will not beheld
As to the fate of the treaty I am con
vinced that England will accept it as
amended She knows that we want the
canal and are bound to have it without
reference to the Hay Pauncefote com
pact If necessary

Republicans in the Senate and voiies

the Republican side

LONDON Jan 1 Clement Scott has
again set the dramatic profession by the
ears An anonvmous article in todays
Daily Mall had for its sequel one of the
most remarkable scenes ever witness d in
a London theatre Eecrbohm Tree gave
a special performance of Herod at Ecr
Majestys Theatre this afternoon The
theatre was thronged tho aud ence in
cluding all the most prominent members
of the profession here
At the close of the play in response to
great applause tho curtain rose disclos
ing Mr Tree surrounded by his entire
company He delivered a speesh which
had evidently been carefully prepared
saving that he spoke on behalf of the dra
matic profession in reply to the article in
tho Dally Mall the writer of which had
asserted that there were no great adore
at the present day as Kemble and Kan
were great adding
Our most famous tragedian Irving is
an incomparable actpr of farce melo
drama who has wantonly attempted tasks
for which his talent does not fit him -he
rest Tree and Windham for instance
lave distinguished themselves In eccen
tric comedy far more highly than in
serious drama Nor do we 3ee among the
younger actors a single talent for traely
or emotional comedy So with the ac
tresses
The level Is higher than heretofore but
it seems that no one emerges from re
spectable mediocrity
Far higher praise has been lavished
on living actors than has been found for
the great men of the past but tho praise
is less intelligently administered and tho
lest critics are merely enthusiastic from
sheer ooredom However it may be said
that Windham and Hare are accomplish
ed comedians Miss Terry has a pretty
gift of pathos when too much is not asked
of her and many another Haw trey and
Mrs Campbell for instance are always
prepared with an intelligent interpreta
tion
The indignation aroused in tho profes
sion by this article can be easily under
stood and Mr Tree put It in words full of
brilliant sarcasm expressing his admira
tion of the writers courage of ignor
ance His speech was received with up
roarious applausa bj over a thousand ac
tors
In the course of his icmarks Mr Tree
said
Detraction wa3 ever the weapon of the
impotent Happily the well being of the
drama is not In the hands of such as he
Its welfare Is In the hands of those gath
ered within these walls They will take
care of it I think it Is not too much to
say that in no times and In no country
has the influence of the drama artisti
cally ethically and socially been greater
thau at the present moment At no time
have its exponents been inspired with
greater enthusiasm of effort even if they
have sometimes failed of accomplish
ment
A correspondent later interview ed Mr
Tree and found him Jubilant Ho gather
ed from Mr Trees remarks that the au
thorship of the article was attributed to
Mr Scott who has consistently attacked
Mr Tree- Lately he ha3 been writing
anonvmowdy and attacking the profession
generally It is noticeable that special
articles in the Dally Mall have hither
to beta signed
