Tha Will of the People.
The elections of last November, like
those In November, 1890, were In the
nature of a popular revolution. Mr.
Cleveland is the mac above all others
upon whom the great majority of the
American people rely to carry out the
purposes and accomplish the objects of
that revolution. With this view they
have already overridden the political
"machine," acd before they will permit
themselves to be thwarted or cheated
they will grind it into powder. To place
Mr, Cleveland again In the president's
chair they have disregarded all the tradi
tions, the precedents, the counsels and
the warnings of the so called party man
agers and bosses. Before they will allow
Mr. Cleveland to be hindered or embar
rassed In the work which they have set
him to do they will chase the same
would be "bosses" and masters of the
people out of office and out of public life.
It is creditable to the sagacity of the
men at the head of the most powerful
political organization within the limits
of the party to be the first to recognize
the true nature and significance of the
situation and to proclaim their readiness
and intention to abide by it By adher
ing to this polite course after the 4th of
March Tammany will only be giving ad
ditional proof of the shrewdness which
guided its course after the Chicago con
vention nominated not Hill, but Cleve

The clay is kaolin, running from red and

transparent, but tinted with .any shade

work is made by paiiiting the clay with
heavy white paint and dipiring in the
glaze last described. In another kind of
good work the clay is colored in caustic-
colors, kept in -the heat until they have
set and then glazed as usual. The Chi

FOUR IMPCETAKT BILLS DONE WITH
And Beady for the President's Slgnata
Among Them the Pension and Car Coup
ler Bills Indications That the Senate
'Will Not Insist on Sherman's Bond
Amendment Chantage from tha Talk
in Both Houses Honor Paid to Morton
by Senators Capital Notes.
Washington, Feb. 28. There was a great
deal of talk in both houses yesterday, and
also a good deal of business done.
About the first thing that raised
debate in the senate was a bill Call wanted
referred, the object of which was to head
off railway grabbing of swamp lands in
Florida. Reference was opposed and de
feated. During the debate Wolcott said
that he had no knowledge of the subject of
the senator's bill. He did not know the
names of the railroad companies which it
affected. He did not know the location of
the lands. lie had never been in Florida
bnt once; and if tl e Lord forgave him he
would never be there again. Laughter,
He understood, however, that there was a
sort of quarrel between railroad companies
in Florida and some gentlemen who want
ed to come to the si-nate from that state.
But he knew that the proposition was an
interference with t ie due and intelligent
administration of law, and without any
sort of explanation nothing but the
Call Was " SarVastikul."
Call replied to Volcott and expressed
his regret (sarcasticj.lly) at the loss which
Florida had sustained by that senator's
visiting the state only once and threaten
ing never to visit it again. The people of
that state, he said, vould have to bear the
ills of life as best thi-y could. He thought
they would survive without the presence of
any senator who defended fraudulent con
spirators and unscrt pulous speculators.
Talked Awhile of Pensions.
Then the pension bill was taken up and
Gorman solemnly called attention to the
scarcity of senators in the chamber. The
roll was called and sixty-seven responded
and then the Maryland statesman, with
great "empressmen-,," stated that there
were 876,iX)0 names on the pension roll, and
that tbe commissioner of pensions had nc
idea, as a fact, of how many would be
added this year, whi'e it was beyond doubt
that there would be a deficit of $S,0O0.00O tc
$20,000,000 June 30, next. The commis
sioner estimated tha:, the pension bill next
year would be $iyo,noo,000 probably, with
, auu.uou names on tl e roll.
Remembers the Honse Action.
He then VTent on to say that reduction of
pension expenses by change in the law was
a great question whi :h he did not care to
enter into now. It night come hereafter.
He suggested that tl ere should be provis
ion for the employment of skilled actua
ries in the pension office. McPherson
asked what better time was there than the
present to start (in 'hat matter. Gorman
said he could not fail to take notice of the
fact that there had been an overwhelming
vote in the house at ainst any change in
the pension laws. The fact was as had
been stated laat week by the senator from
Illinois, Palmer tha: there had been a ri
valry between the tw o great political par
ties to see how tar they could go in the
matter of pension lef islation. All that be
Gorman desired to do was to call the at-
tion of the senate and the people to the fact
that with the present condition of the pen
sion laws con cress wuld be powerless at
the next session to rtduce the pension ap
propriation to any extent.
Views of Palcier of Illinois.
Palmer said that there was a growing
anxiety that pensions should be paid only
to tbe deserving; and he thought that the
old soldiers (pensioners as well as non-pen
sioners) would favor any proposition that
would tend to eliminate from the rolls
those who did not darve pensions. There
was no disposition to deprive the meritori
ous of their pensions, but there wa a de
sire to reform tbe pension law so that the
annual payment miht be reduced. He
trusted that the new administration would
find a man for pensic n commissioner who
would comprehend the gravity of the sub
ject and who would have the courage to
Game Kot Worth the Candle.
Piatt expressed trie opinion that the
elimination of fraudulent pensioners would
amount to a very slight saving not enough
to pay the expense of examination and
that tbe only way in which any important
reduction could be made would be the repeal
or modification of tbe pension laws them
selves; but he did not suppose that there
would be such repeal or modification. Alli
son expressed similar views.
WOULDN'T GIVE 'EM A SHOW.
The Members With "Little Bills" Cruelly
Choked Off by Simpson.
When the house ht d come to order the
area in front of the speaker was packed
with members, each violently waving a
bill in tbe air and snouting for the speak
er's recognition. Ea:h bill was a pet local
measure and each w is "left." For Popu
list Simpson demanded the regular order
and a motion to suspend the rules and pass
the Indian appropriation bill was made.
In order to have a cl ance to talk Taylor of
Illinois demanded a n-cond and proceeded
to denounce the anti-option buL This
raised the ire of iarmer Hatch aud he
pitched into Taylor.
Hatch Defends Anti-Option.
He said that the CI icago gentleman had
Baid that this bill wculd limit sales. Yes
it would; not miles of wheat, but sales of
wind. It would limb the wiles of dealers
in Chicago who lor very bushel of wheat
raised in a year sold l,nib bushel of wind

treasury to issue 3 per cent, bonds payable
in five yeurs, whereas now the law required
ii per cents, running thirty or forty
years. Cock ran said that as between the
Bland law, which tbe country had escaped,
and the Sherman law, under which it was
suffering, the Sherman law was the better
of the two. But the latter was a barrier to
every prospect of bimetallism. Instead of
appreciating the price of silver it had de
preciated it. And yet those who claimed
to be the friends of silver had defeated ev
