LETTER FE0M HARRITT CRITICISED
Comment on the Same Governed by Where
They Stand on the Sliver Question
Views of the Cabinet Through the Same
Glasses Reed Thinks He Knows Why
He Got I-eft Benton Hanchett, of Mich
igan, Appointed to Succeed Judge Jack
son A Compliment to Morton.
Washington, Feb. 24. The open discus
sions in congress yesterday were not half so
interesting as the private discussion of the
Harrity silver letter and the completed
cabinet of the next administration. The
two subjects were interwoven in conversa
tion and many of the views expressed were
exceedingly forcible. The Harrity letter is
one that Pennsylvania leider addressed to
each member of the national committee,
asking them to ascertain the probable atti
tude on the repeal of the Sherman law of
nintey members of the next house who
have not yet made a record on the question.
Senator Harris, of Tennessee, said: "I for
one will never consent to the repeal of the
Sherman law without the substitution of
something in its place that recognizes the
use of silver as money."
Herbert Had Lots of Courage.
Senator Puyth.of Alabama, made the fol
lowing comment on the appointment of
Mr. Herbert aud Mr. Cleveland's purpose
in making it: "I am constrained to be
lieve that the ruling motive for Mr. Her
bert's appointment was the courage hedis
played in being the only member from Al
abama who voted against 95 per cent, of
his constituents on the free coinage of sil
ver. Mr. Herbert is the onlv Democrat of
proniiuence in Alabama who agrees with
the enemies of free coinage, There is not
a man in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet from the
south or west who represents his state or
the Democratic party on the silver ques
tion." Tetter's Opinion of the Cabinet.
Senator FcfTer said: "There are three
members of the cabinet given to New Eng
land and New York, nil men of the eastern
type; three men from the south who arc
Democrats before they are anything else,
and only two whom we can call western by
reason of location, and only one of these
who is independent of party influence I
refer to Judge tiresbam. Summing up the
whole cabinet, I regard it as constructed
specially to perpetuate existing conditions
against which the Populists propose to
wage war to the end."
Divided by a Silver Line.
Over on the house side, the silver and anti-silver
men took diametrically opposite
views of the Harrity letter. Kepresenta
tive Itland said: "It is an unprecedented
proceeding and every member of the house
who has the least spark of manhood or.
self-respect will simply tell the member
of that committee that it is none of their
lleprescntative Andrews, of Massachu
setts said: The Democratic party is pledged
to repeal the Sherman law and it is simply
a desire to know how members stand. I
do not regard it as coercion, but as an at
tempt to ilet needed legislation."
Kree Cninage a Test of Democracy.
liepresentative Hatch said: "I am a
Democrat without one single variation
from the Democratic platform, and have
always regarded the free coinage of silver
as a cardinal Democratic principle. I be
lieve in making free coinage a party test,
just as we fought Kfuxial! and his friends
on tariff reform."
Representative Outhwaite said: "I think
it an emineutly proper thing for the na
tional committee to endeavor to find out
how members stand, ft shows that the
Democratic organization is attempting to
keep its pledges to the people."
SOME VIEWS OF POPULISTS.
AUa Comments of Democrats and Repub
licans on the Cabinet.
"Well." said Watson, the Populist leader
from Georgia, UI have r.ot read it carefully,
hut it looks to me as though Mr. Cleveland
was snapping the whip over "the lioys." It
appears tome that Mr. Cleveland is at
tempting to build up a Wall street aristoc
racy." Otis of Kansas, also a People's party rep
resentative, looked upon the letter as a
meddlesome and entirely uncalled for ef
fort to secure a premature declaration of
opinion from men who would be called
upon to vote upon the question.
Springer said: "Of course the letter is all
right. Mr. Harrity was merely seeking for
information. The letter was a confidential
one, and I do not understand how it hap
pened to be published, but there is nothing
wrong about it."
Yiems of I he Cabinet.
In speaking of the entire cabinet, Blount
said: -Mr. Cleveland is a man of rare wis
dom. His endorsement of the cabinet gives
assurance that his selections are wise."
Speaker Crisp It is a very good cabinet,
and a satisfactory one, I guess,
Dingley There are some pretty coxxl
men in it.
Cobb of Missouri I think it is a strong
and admirable cabinet. I l-!ieve that Mr.
Greshani, as secretary of state, will gain us
more than we will lose. He will make a
fine secretary. Altogether, I am very
much pleased with the selections.
Comments of the "Knenij."
Bingham, Republican of Pcnssvlvania
It is a strong cabinet. It is a "personal
cabinet and is chosen for the fidelity of its
members. " ..
To these comment, ex-Speaker Reed
added this characteristic cap-sheaf I think
that Mr. Cleveland chanei his mind
about appointing me to -a place in the
sabinet because of some speeches which Mr.
Hill or some other Democrat made about
me. I am disappinted."
JACKSON'S SUCCESSOR APPOINTED.
He Is a Michigan Republican Who Had
No Senatorial Endorsers.
WASHlXGTOX,Keb.24. The president has
nominated Benton Hanchett.of Michigan, to
succeed Judge Jackson in the Sixth judicial
district. Mr. Hanchett lives in Saginaw,
Mich., and has long been recognized as one
of the leading attorneys of the state. He
was Known 10 toe president ana the attor
ney general by reputation, but neither of
them enjoyed his personal acquaintance.
Although he has frequently been named In
connection with oflicesof various character
Mr. Hanchett has steadily declined polit
ical preferment, his only position of this
sort being that of Republican presidential
lector in 18o
The Singular Feature of the Case.
When Stotkbridge was making a cam
paign for reuominatiou to the senate,
Hanchett was brought forward by the op
position, but withdrew by the time Stock
bridge's case began to grow doubtful. He
also declined a proffered appointment to
the supreme court of Michigan, which was
tendered him by Governor Luce. Hanchett
was not a candidate for the place, but on
the contrary endorsed T. J. O'Brien, of
Grand Rapids, who was an avowed candi
date for the appointment. A singular fea
ture of the case is that both he senators
from Michigan and ex-Senator Palmer,
present president of the World's fair, en
dorsed O'Brien. IIunch is about 55
years old, and in robust heTT.th.
SIGNED BY ALL THE SENATORS,

tion to Morton.
Washington, Ecb. 24. The following
letter has been addressed to Vice President
Morton, who has accepted the banquet

ing, the 7th inst.
Sin: The discharge of the important du
ties incident to your great olhee as presi

Tender Him a Itanquet.
"Your constant fairness and signal abili
ty have commanded our respect and con
lidence and your uniform courtesy and un
varying kindness have wcu our regard aud

great pleasure in tendering you a banquet
at the Arlington hotel, in this city, on the
i'Tth instant, at S o'clock.
Very Sincerely, Your Friends,"
The letter is signed by every member of
f the senate except six who are absent.
The Senate Rushed Things.
Washington-, Feb. 2-4. The senate yes
terday passed the diplomatic and consular
and the military academy bills in less than
an hour, and besides that nearly completed
consideration of the legislative, executive,
and judicial bill. An amendment was
agreed to giving to the miuister of the
United States at any European court the
same title as that country's representative
in the United States bears.
The feature of the house meeting was the
general ovation given to the naval secre
tary elect when he entered. He tried to
lip in unobserved, but couldn't and the
members without regard to politics rose
and cheered him. Hatch tried again to get
up the anti-option hill, but was again
beaten and the Indian appropriation bill
resumed and considered without final ac
tion. The conference report on the aruiy
bill was agitid to. The sundry civi! bill
with senate amendment was referred
to the appropriation committee.
ttolm&n Want a Cloture Rtiltt.
W.sj!in,,tk, Feb. U. In the house yes
terday Holmau of. Indiana offered for ref
erence to the committee on rules the fol
lowing resolution: "That immediately
after the adeption of this rule the house
shall proceed to the consideration
of the senate amendments to the
sundry civil appropriation bill and at
the conclusion of a debate of four hours
shall vote on the question of concurring
or non-concurring in the senate amend
ment 75it he Sherman bond amendment) and
immidately after shall proceed to vote a
the question of non-concurring in gross on
the remaining senate amendments."
Satolli Is a Vice-rope.
WASHlNOTox.Feb. 24. There is no appeal
from the decision of Mgr. Satolli, papal
delegate. The statement is made on au
thority. An American Vatican has prac
tically been established, and its dictum on
all ecclesiastical controversies will prevail.
By this it is meant that a priest or prelate
dissatisfied with the legate's decisions can
not appeal to Rome. A formal letter
may be written and forwarded, but Mgr.
Satolli is the court of last resort and the
holy see will decline to examine into a
question that has been passed upon by the
pope's personal representative in Amer
ica. . The Aanexrrs Must Wait.
Washington', Feb. 24. The Hawaiian
treaty is practically defeated for this ses
sion. Two-thirds of those voting upon it
must vote in the affirmative in order to
ratify the treaty, and it is known that at
least thirty-two senators intend to vote in
the negative. The belief has grown rapidly
this week that the United States can afford
to wait before annexing the islands, and
friends of Cleveland believe that he will ap
point a commission, headed by Don M.
Dickinson, to visit Honolulu before he
sends his views upon the subject to the
Populist Will Not Obstruct.
Washington. Feb. 24. Speaking of the
next senate yesterday, Peffer said he
thought the IX'mocrats should organize it
and should -nrt le interfered with by Popu
list in their legislation. He added, "I
would rather assist the Democrats in car
rying one of their party measures, after
having protested against it, if it wai in op
position to my judgment as to what ought
to be done, than to prevent them from giv
ing their work to the people."
Punch Itowljor the Oufter Detroit.
Washington Feb. 24. Forty citizens of
Detroit, Mich.farrived in Washington yes
terday for the' purpose of presenting a
magnificent punch bowl to.the new cruiser
named in honor of their city, which has
just been completed at the Columbia Iron
works in Baltimore. The secretary of the
treasury will set a day next week for the
function. The punch bowl is an elaborate
affair and cost U,.ViO.
Relief for a Prominent Inwan.
Washington, Feb. 24.-The house yes
terday passed a bill for the relief of George
W. Jones, the first senator from Iowa, and
the ex-senator being on the floor thanked
Hitt, who had charge of the bill. In the
senate the same bill was promptly passed
and Jones bowed his thanks. The relief
consists in the reopening and adjustment
of Jones' accounts while minister to New
I'ulon Telegraphers Discharged.
St. Paul, Feb. 24. There is a row on be
tween the Western Union Telegraph com
pany and its force of operators. Wednes
day ten operators belonging to the local
union were discharged without a minute's
notice aud without the assignment of any
reasons. A meeting of the union has been
called to consider the matter, as it is
agreed that membership in the order
must have been the reason for the dis
charge. Princess Kaiulani Coming.
Washington, Feb. 24. Annexers Thurs
ton, Castle, and Carter will all stay in this
city until the senate disposes of the annex- ,
ation treaty. Princess Kaiulani is coming
to this country with her friend T. W. Da
vies, to propose au American protectorate
of the islands with herself as queen, and, it
is supposed, ignores Liliuokalani's claims.
Rome Against Civil Marriage.
VIENNA, Feb. 24. The municipal au
thorities of Psth, Komeren, and other cit
ies of Hungary, have adopted resolutions
approving the ecclesiastical policy of the
Hungarian government, and demanding
that civil marriage be made obligatory.
This action is in direct antagonism to the
Roman Catholic church authorities, who
are spanug no effort to defeat the move
ment in favor ul civil marriage.
