More Appropriation Bill Passed The
House Decides On Free Pig Tin Repub
lican Senators Disgusted That They Can
not Get an Executive Session.
Washington-, March 1. Vice President
elect SteveDson and party reached the na
tional capital at 6:05 p. m. yesterday. The
journey from their Bloomington home oc
cupied thirty-four hours, to the minute.
After leaving Cumberland the special train
made no stops until Martinsburg was
reached. Here the largest crowd of the
trip had gathered. It blocked up the plat
form and the parapet above, while the
verandahs and windows of the hotel were
black with people. As the train came to a
standstill the Martinsburg band played
"America." A slight rain was falling, and
so the vice president-elect contented him
self with bowing his thanks for tbe recep
tion from the rear platform of the car, in
stead of going through the usual hand
Declined to Make an Address.
There were loud and repeated calls for a
speech, but tiencral Stevenson stuck to his
determination to make no addresses on
the trip. His failure to respond put the
throng in a trifle of n bad humor, but the
band struck up a lively air and drowned
the demands for bjust a few words."
Meamwhile some of the members of the es
cort nag club had been decorating the loco
motive that was to take the train into
Washington. A lithograph of the vice-president-elf
ct in a frame of tri-colored
bunting was placed over the headlight,
and a smaller one of Cleveland framed in
glass and wood affixed just over it. The
tender was hidden from view with bunt
ing, bearing the name of Cleveland and
Stevenson, and other decorations added
that gave tLe locomotive a gala appear
ance. Arrival at the National Capital.
Xo stops were made between this point
and Washington, but at Shenandoah and
Harper's ferry there were small crowds
that gave a cheer as the. train rushed by.
The train was due to arrive here at 4:10
o'clock and at that hour 300 OT-3f people
wer assembled in and about the Baltimore
and Miio station to welcome the vice presi
dentelect . to Washington. In the two
hours that elapsed before the train reached
its destination the crowd had doubled, and
when Stevenson appeared on Xew Jersey
avenue leaning on the arm of Colonel J. U.
Barrett, chairman of the general inaugura
tion committee, a loud cheer for Stevenson
went up. Mrs. Stevenson, escorted by Mr.
James I. Xorris, chairman of the execu
tive committee, followed and the whole
party at once entered carriages and were
driven to the Kbbitt -house.
,, No Official Demonstration.
Among the crowd gat lu red at the sta
tion were a mitnlier of ladies, all of whom
expressed the liveliest curiosity to see the
new official. Hepi oscnt at ive Williams, of
Illinois, was on hand to greet Stevenson.
There was no official demonstration nt the
station. Messrs. Barrett and Xorris were
well acquainted with Stevenson and no
formality was observed in the greeting that
they gave to each other. The Illinois club,
of Bloomington, which, with their guests,
including ladies, to the number of about
100, came as escort to the vice president
elect, will occupy the cars in which they
made the journey during their stay in

Senators Express Themiielvr Over Money
for the Naval Review.
Washington, March 1. An item in the
naval appro print ion bill of $500,000 for the
expenses of the international naval review
in celebration of Columbus year caused a
good deal of talk in the senate yesterday
which seemed to be for the purpose of
letting senators hear themselves to a great
extent, for the item went through, after
all, with hardly a negative vote Informa
tion as to tbe necessity of appropriating so
large a sum was asked by Vest. He was
told by Hale, in charge of the bill, that in
vitations had been extended to foreign na
tions to send ships of war to participate in
the review. It would be an imposing and
stately spectacle." A large item of expense
would be the employment, of temporary
seamen (the navy lcing now "hard up" for
A Matter That Troubles Cockrell.
Cockrell read and commented upon a
communication from the Xew York cham
ler of commerce signed by Henry Villard
asxhairman. asking the aid of congress in
the entertainment in Xew York of foreign
viiitors to the World's fair, and he asked
Hale whether the $300,000 proposed to be
appropriated included anything for that
"illustrious and magnificent proposition."
Hale replied that he did not know exactly
what was wanted by the New York gen
tlemen who were represented by Villard,
but he had the impression that they want
ed the government to do some of the New
York entertainment of foreign visitors.
Referred Elsewhere for Information.
"Why," said Cockrell, "the senator from
Maine does not suspect that these gentle
men are asking that the people's money,
wrung from them by taxation, shall be
placed in the hands of millionaires of New
York to be expended in the riotous enter
tainment of every foreigner who may land
on our shores?"
" "I do not know about that," said Hale.
"The senator from Missouri can tell me
much more about Mr. Villard than I can
tell him. Mr. Villard i a gentleman, well
known and favorably known throughout
the country. . He stands today as a very
near representative of the new reform ad
ministration. I do not know that he has
asked for anything, or that his New York
friends have asked for anything to come
out of taxes paid by the people. But
whether he has or has not, he does not
come to us. At all events the government
does not, of course, propose to do New
York'a entertainment. We cannot keep
Sir, YjUard from coming here with hi-
memorial, lie nas a right to come and
make his suggest ions."
Voorhee Asks a Few Questions.
Then Voorhecs remarked interrogative
ly that Villard could pass around the hat
or resort to any other form of "mendi
cancy," and wanted to know whether the
New York people would be willing to ac
Hale The senator should seek some
other source of authority than me or than
senators on this side of the chamber. All
these things about reform and about eas
ing the people's burdens, about currency
and about bonds, do not seem settled yet.
They will be settled in another place; and
I send the senator to that place; I do not
know about it.
Lays It on the Chamber of Commerce.
Hill did not understand that the state ol
New York desired any appropriation from
the general government for the purpose
of entertaining foreigners who might visit
the port of Xew York in the coming sum
mer. The New York chamber of com
merce was responsible for the suggestion.
The state of New York was not responsi
ble for it. A short time ago, however, a
suggestion from the same chamber of com
merce of New York had met a far' differ
ent reception than this one did he meant
the petition to transfer the entire control
of quarantine to the general government.
SENATE REPUBLICANS DISGUSTED.
Two Attempts to Go Into Kxecutive Ses
sion Defeated Work in Congress.
Washington. March 1. The senate yes
terday passed the naval and agricultural
appropriation bills, the bill regulating
the sale of liquors in the District, the house
bill extending for one year the time of
filing petitions in the court of private land
claims, and a joint resolution to loan the
portraits of chief justices of the United
States to the World's fair. The significant
feature of the session was the refusal twice
of the senate to go into executive session
owing to lack of Republican support, one
senator remarking: "We might as well
give the senate to the Democrats at.once."
Tig Tin Remains Free.
The house refused to unseat Turpin,
Democrat-, from the Fourth Alabama dis
trict and put McDuflie, tbe contestant, in
his place, and adopted the joint resolution
regarding portraits of chief justices sent
from the senate. It also passed, without
opposition, the bill to admit pig tin free of
duty after July 1, 1S93, and the bill estab
lishing a standard gauge for sheet and
plate iron and ste1.
Whisky Trust Not a Trust.
Washington, March 1. The whisky
trust investigators have jlrepared a report
in which they conclude that, the whisky
trust' is not a trust in an offensive sense
nd within the meaning of the law again
trusts and combines. It expresses its sat
isfaction with the methods pursued by
President Grcenhut and his asociates,and
says tv.c company which they direct and
control is meiely a single corporation. The
report recommends that the duty on im
ported liquors be reduced lrom N.50 to fl
per gallon and that the tariff on all goods
be reduced whenever it is found that they
are influenced by a trust or combination.
Ouiliwaite I'lcastintly Remembered.
Washington, March 1. Outhwaite,
chairman of the house committee on mil
itary affairs, was pleasantly remembered
by his associates of the committee yester
day m the presentation of a beautiful solid
6ilver writingdesk set. The large tray
was appropriately engraved with the names
of the members of the committee and
cleiks. General Newberry, of Chicago,
made the presentation speech, and was fol
lowed by each member, all of them sneak
ing in the highest terms of the manner in
which the chairman had conducted the
business that had come before them during
Cleveland to Dine with Harrison.
Washington, March 1. A little event
not down on the official programme of in
augural festivities will take place at the
White House Friday evening, when the
president and his daughter, Mrs. McKee,
will entertain Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland at
dinner. This mark of courtesy from the
outgoing to the incoming president is quite
unusual. Tbe list of guests has not yet
been decided upon, and it is possible that
the dinner will be a small family affair.
Millions in Claims.'
Washington, March l. In reply to a
resolution of the house asking the amount
of claims now pending before the depart
ments Secretary Foster reports that includ
ing the direct tax and the cotton tax they
amount to $174,821,000 less $3,000,000, the
estimated amount allowed by congress.
He recommends that the so-called Bowman
act which allows such claims to be referred
by congress to the court of claims for ad
judication be repealed.
Two Things That iron's Happen.
Washington, March 1. "No event of the
future can be more certain than that the
treaty with Hawaii will not be ratified by
this congress, at least, and that Mr. Han
chett's nomination to tbe place made va
cant by the promotion of Justice Jackson
will not be confirmed." So spoke a promi
nent Democratic member of the senate
judiciary committee yesterday. This con
dition of affairs is admitted by the other
The Itoomers To Hm Watched.
Washington, March 1. Secretary Noble,
on receipt of reliable information that a
number of people are gathered on the
borders of the Cherokee strip with the
avowed intention of invading that terri
tory unless it is speedily opened to settle
ment, has ordered Inspector Cisney to pro
ceed at once to the strip and report upon
the situation in detail.
Opposius; a Sunday Concert.
Washington, March 1. Quay presented
in the senate yesterday a petition signed
by the pastors oC many of the Washington
churches and others against the proposed
concert programme by the marine band
in the pension office building next Sunday
as part of tbe inaugural ceremonies. It
declared that the proposed concert will be
a national sin.
