Henderson of Iowa Adds Something to
the Discussion of Appropriations Cap
ital City Notes.
WASHIXGTOV, larch 11. M. V. Gannon,
of Omaha, called on the president yester
day in company with Senator Allen and
Representative Bryan, of Nebraska, and
Representative Hayes, of Iowa. Gannon
is president of the Irish National league
And is a candidate for the Chilian mis
sion, now held by Patrick Eg.in. When
his case was presented to the president by
Allen, Bryan and Hayes Cleveland was
non-committal and gave no indication of
his choice in the matter. Another Xebras
kan who called was H. V. Shoemaker, of
Omaha, a candidate for an assistant attor
ney generalship. He was accompanied by
his friend, Secretary Morton.
Cray Calls on Greitham.
Ex-Governor Isaac P. Gray, the newly
appointed minister to Mexico, called at the
state department, accompanied by Sena
tor Tnrpie, who presented him to Secretary
Gresham. Governor Gray called merely to
pay his respects before starting home to
arrange for the trip to his post of duty.
He will return to Washington after his
confirmation and receive his instructions.
The resignation of Minister Ryan made
close connection with the nomination of
bis successor, having been received at the
state department Thursday by telegraph.
Lawler rushing His Claims.
Frank Lawyer received yesterday from
Joseph A. O'Donnell, one of the Chicago
representatives at Springfield, a petition to
Senator Palmer, signed by all the 101 mem
bers who voted for Palmer for senator, and
who are in the present legislature, asking
the senator to support lawyer for postmas
ter at Chicago. Lawler took it at once to
Senator Palmer and left it with him.
Should the senator go the president and
express the wish that Lawler be appointed
there is little doubt that his request will be
complied with, for the president has cer
tainly a kindly feeling for Iwler, and the
monster petition has made a very strong
impression on him.
Two Other INinols Applicants.
Senator Palmer had a twenty-minute
talk with the president yesterday in the
interest of Brinton for marshal and Shutt
for district attorney for southern Illinois.
He believes they will be appointed. United
States Treasurer ebeker placed his resign
nation in the hands of the president the
first thing Monday morning. He has re
ceived a note from President Cleveland
stating that he will accept it at the earliest
ABOUT THE HAWAIIAN TREATY.
A Republican Senator Makes a Plan
Washington, March. '11. The course of
the president in withdrawing the Hawaiian
treaty is still a matter of discussion among
senators, though they are stopped from
talking publicly upon the s'-Sject by the
ancient senatorial trauit'j.i that matters
executive must be regarded as secret until
such time as the senate itself removes
the injunction of secrecy, which it has
failed to do in the present instance. A Re
publican senator who has taken a promi
nent part in most of the discussions in the
senate in recent years that have touched
foreign relations said yesterday that he
had received aa intimation that the presi
dent was desirous of nodifying the treaty,
and that it would ul '.mately be returned
An Imports ' Modification.
One of the con' jinplated modifications
was probably suggested by the protect of
Queen Lilioukalani made by Mr. Paul
Xeuman, her representative, which stated J
that a majority of the Hawaiians were bit-
He Gives a Statement from a Strongly R.
publican Point of View.
Washington, March 11. Supplement
ing Senator Allison's and Chairman Hol
man's statements of the appropriations of
the last congress Henderson of Iowa, for
eight years a member of the house com
mittee on appropriations, comes to the
front with his analysis of the work of the
Fifty-second congress, taken from a strong
ly Republican view. He gives the total
appropriations, including tiermniient aj
propriations, at tl,CcM,S-.,m,.. ji, exceeding
the Fifty-first congress by $33,-t04,S.3S, n
increase of $ll5,"u7.4--!, for each congression
al district in the United States. He notices
the charge that the senate makes the large
appropriations and calls atteution to the
facS that the house at the session just
closed sent their bill to the senate for f.M3,
487.242.02, or at the rate of over $ 1 ,027,000, -000
;tev annum. The house is a "billion
dollar" house, he says, for its bills for the
Fifty-second congTess aggregated $1,004,
175,614.79 before they reached the senate.
Advice to the Administration.
He also gives figures to show that in ad
dition to appropriations actually made by
the Fifty-second congress it authorized con
tracts mortgaging future revenues in the
sum of $5$,520,tl. Hesaysthat if the Fifty
aecond congress seeks to excuse itself by
charging its extravagance to the legisla
tion of the Fifty-first congress, then the
latter congress can make similar claims
against its Democratic predecessor and the
Fifty-second congress aggregating over !
$91,000,000. To guard against a deficit
Henderson warns this administration to
give closer attention to "moonshiner?.'
and the '"whisky ring'' in collecting more
internal revenue than it did from 1SS5 to
1SS9, when it collected M .OftS.CSJ. 04 less
than President Arthur, and $n..3."S,524.73
less than PresideLt Harrison.
Some lie Beet iou on Pensioning.
He touches on pensions, showing from
the pension bureau that the rolls will
reach their highest point on Dec. 31, 18J-t,
with l,Itl,91S on the rolls, including in
valids, widows, orphans and independent
parents, the annual value of the rolis at
that date being ti55.Sti5,0M. That in 1S;5
there will be dropped from the rolls 44, l32
pensioners with an increasing ratio there
after. Referring to the complaint against
widows' pensions, he shows that if all
widows' claims yet undisposed of are allow
ed there would be TOO, S3 dead soldiers vn-
represented on the rolls by a widow, an
orphan or a dependent parent. He also
points out the danger to the treasury Ifrom
war claims and .says that congress now has

No Help for Rrnbaker.
Washington'. March 11. In the case of
Captain Faros Brubaker, a citizen of North
Dakota imprisoned in Spanish Honduras,
President Cleveland has transmitted to the
senate, in compliance with its resolution of
the 3d inst., a report from Secretary ot
ctate tirestiam giving all information in
the department relative to the case. This
in substance is that Brubaker took up
arms against me government, was cap
tured, tried according to Honduras law
and sentenced to prison for seven years.
Unless there was some irregularity in his
trial Brubaker must takeiis medicine.
Progress of Senate Reorganization.
Washington, March 11. The senators
composing the Democratic caucus commit
tee appointed for the purpose of revising
the senate committees adjourned last
evening after a third session lasting fix
hours. "We have accomplished much to
day," said one of the members, "although
we are not yet through with the assign
ments." It is possible that the committee
will finish today, and will then report to a
caucus which may be called after the ses
sion of the senate Monday or Tuesday.
Plenty of Cold for the Treasury.
Washington, March 11. Several offers
of gold for small treasury notes were made
to Secretary Carlisle yesterday. Cincin
nati bankers offered $1,000,000, of which
$600,000 was accepted. Oth?r offers in small
quantities came from bankers in Ken
tucky, Illinois, and Miseouri. Treasurer
ebeker was much pleased with the turn
affairs have taken, and declared that suf-
terly opposed to annexation. The senator 1 Sclent offers of gold had been received to

would depend upon the will of the Hawaii
ans as expressed by a plebiscitum. Should
the majority reject annexation then a pro
tectorate might be establish;. The sena
tor felt sure that a large majority of the
intelligent population of the islands fav
ored annexation outright, but among the
lower classes much opposition would doubt
less oe found.
Annexation by Another Road.
Should these classes dominate then a
protectorate will follow and this in turn
would surely result in annexation because
the United States couid not undertake per
manently to assume responsibility for the
acts of the islanders without the por. er to
control those acts; otherwise serious com
plications with other powers would ensue.
The senator further admitted that the
treaty was ambiguous respecting the sugar
bounty. While the general understanding
was that it provided that this bounty
should not be paid to the Hawaiian sugar
producers, there was a possibility of a
different interpretation of the section.
May Possibly Be a Straw.
The Hawaiian annexers, Thurston and
Castle, were summoned to the secretary of
state's office yesterday afternoon. The
secretary, just before he saw the Hawaii
ans, was closeted for some time with Sena
tor Gray, a member of the committee on
foreign relations who alone of all the mem
bers of the committee did not sign the re
port recommending the ratification of the
treaty. Tlio impression prevails in official
circles that the treaty will not find its way
to the senate, again during the extra ses
sion. The secietary intimated to the Haw
aiians that he would want some informa
tion from them, but he was too busy with

WASHINGTON, March 11. The estimated
