the train for her New Jersey home.
The members of the committee re

to change the basis of representation,
said that he would not offer it, but

"I ask th cominii tee to honor me

for a statement somewhat jiersonal iu
its nature. It is well known by mem
bers of the committee, both from the
public press and correspondence with
them, that 1 have intended to offer and
advocate the adoption by the commit
tee of a resolution recommending to
the next Republican convention a
change in the basis of representation

which 1 had prepared to present to
the committee on the subject.

"The proiiosition has received the
support of almost the entire Republic
an prss of the oouutry. aud 1 have
reason to iH-lieve that upon its merits,
as well as uikhi grounds of expedi
ency, it has the support of n large
number of this committee. I have not
iu I lie slightest degree chaugisd my
conviction as to its justice, nor have I
tht; slightest doubt as to its expedi

countered opposition which I bad no
reason to anticipate, including that of
the chairman of this committee. It is
mitticicut for me to say that out of my
regard for his opinion, and the opin

councils of the party, to which, as a
loyal Republican. I feel bound to defer,

self." Discussed by if anna.
Senator Hanna took the 11 nor and
briefly discussed the 1 'ay ne proposi
tion, although it was not formally lie
fore the committee. He said that hi;
did not believe it was the province of
the national committee to ir.agurate
any such radical changes. The com
mittee was appointed for the purpose
of assisting in every honorable way
the election of the ticket nominated
and to arrange the preliminaries for
the next convention. Changes iu the
basis of representation, he thought,
should be left for the convention to
deal with. He did not believe that
the committee should make recom
mendations to congress as to legisla
tion. In their individual capacity.
nemliers could ask their senators and
icpresentntivcs to bring about sucli
legislation as they favored, but the
committee, he thought, should main
tain its position as an organization to
conduct the affairs of the party under
the instructions of th convention. If
it assumed more, it would be charged
Hanna's Remarks Cheered.
Mr. Hauna's remarks were cheered
by the committee. None of the other
propositions on this subject were
brought forward. The sub-committee

delegates from the District of Colum

There was some talk alout the large
representation from territories, but no
ntion was taken. The committee ad
journed subject to the cull of the
chairman, it Iwlnir explained that it
will assemble a few days before the
convention meets to make up tne pre
liminary roll of delegates.

Washington. Dec. 10. Representa

a state of war exists in South Africa

the iHirts and territory of the I'uited
States. The congress of the I'nitod
States protest and remonstrate against
the barbarous manner in which the
war lias been conducted by tJreat Brit

recognized by all civilized nations and

III RIAL OF MAINE VICTIMS.
Department Arranging for
terment at Arlington.
Washington. Dee. 1. Assistant
Secretary of the Navy Allen, having
selected the place where the dead of
the Maine are to be buried is now
making arrangements for the reinter
ment, substantially on the same lines
as those followed in the case of the
Santiago victims. The remains of the
Maine victims will le brought by a
special train direct from Fort Monroe
to Arlington. They will be carried
through tJeneral Sheridan's gate and
placed in hospital tents pending the
burial services, each casket covered
with an American flag.
It is expected that the president, the
members of the president's cabinet,
most of the army aud naval officers in
WuOiington and a large number of
persons will be present at Arlington
when the final interment takes place,
probably the last week in December.

PROSPECTS III TRADE
As Reported by R. C. Dun & Co.'s
OUTLOOK BRIGHT IX ALL LOES.
Cnnsnal Depression of Storks In Unac

Wheat Disappointing No Further Ad
vances in Wool The Iron Prodnctlon.
New York. Dee. 10. 11. O. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade says
Unusual depression iu stocks this
week has displayed the gre.it diver
gence between the trading aud the pro
ductive industries of the country and
its speculation. Never has production
Iteen greater, the number of hands em
ployed larger, the wages distributed
higher, or the purchasing power, based
upon earnings, greater than at this
time, and never have conditions of
trade or returns of earnings aud traf
fic given certainty of greater business
for trausKrters. Yet. as the earniugs
of the railway ami manufacturing
companies mount upward their stocks
decline as if it were disastrous for
a road to double its earniugs and ruin
ous for a mill to realize unprecisdented
protits. Inflated capitalization has, of
course, done much harm, and specula
live excitement has counted profits in
many cases long before they were
earned. Money markets here aud
abroad have been strained by British
leverses in South Africa, and what
ever they were overloaded have been
pushed to ouick and disastrous instead
of gradual liquidation.
Profits and Losses.
The result is that while industries
and transporting companies realize
great profits the speculative holders
of their stocks realize severe losses.
Iron production still expauds. The
Iron Age rc torts the output of pig

while it is said that 2.S5 cents is shad

but nearly all works still have orders
far ahead, and in other specialties
prices are unchanged. The collapse of
the London speculation dropped the
quotation of tin to 24 cents here, with
recovery to 2.1 li cents, and copper is
weak at Kii cents, but lead is a shade
Iemand for Roots and Shoes.
The boot and shoe works are has
tening deliveries to meet the enormous
consuming demand, and have shipped
from Boston lMii.421 eases in two
weeks of December, against ir2.GS
last year, and still less in any other
year, except 18S)7. when 1.1.S24 cases
were shipped. The same dealers who
urge early deliveries on past orders at
lower prices are slow to place more at
the higher prices now asked, while most
of Ihe works, having orders or some
time ahead, are not anxious to take
more at present. The approach of the
holidays makes all welcome a season
of quiet. Leather continues strong,
with scanty supplies of sole, but great
demand for upper.
The movement of wheat is disap
pointing, but prices have declined only
".sc. with corn a fraction higher. At
lantic exports of wheat. Hour included,
have been in two weeks of December
only ri.:;2S.2ii! bushels, against 11.12!,
4.V. last year, and Pacific exports. J
.Hil.!is2 bushels, against 1.2PN.114 last
year. Shrinkage in wtstorn receipts,
only S.!ts.1.72.1 bushels having come for
ward in two weeks, against 17.74S.411
last year, is remarkable, though the
movement then was abnormal.
Decrease in Jbxport.
Exports of breads! tiffs iu November

enormous shipments of manufactured

November decreased if 13.020.92ti iu

against l,4S:;.l2i last year. Prices do
not change Ihis week, even believers
iu a short crop thinking it as well to

The goods market was strong, with
borne further advances in prices.
Wool did not advance farther,

far exceeding all consuming demands
that speculation must still account for
