Washington, March 21. The president
tent an important batch of nominations to
the senate yesterday, of which the chief
was to fill the post of "ambassador" of the
United Stares to Great Britain. The ap
pointee to ''ii place is Thomas F. Bayard,
of Delaware. Cleveland's secretary of
state eight years ago. Bayard will thus
have the honor of beiim the first American
ambassador to the court of St. James. He
succeeds Koltcrt Lincoln, whose resigna
tion was accented by Secretary Gresham
In the follow! n:; letter:
"Sir: I duly laid b-.-fore the president
your letter of the 1.1th resigning the office
of envoy extraordinary and minister pleni
potentiary, and am now directed by him to
inform you that it has leen accepted.
"In doing so the president desires me to
make suitable expression of his high ap
preciation of the ability, efficiency and
teal with which you have fulfilled the
duties of your mission, and his sincere re
gret that your retirement deprives the
service of one of its most honored officers.
The president trusts that that you will
find it convenient to continue in the per
formance of your functions until relieved
by your successor and entrance upon bis
duties. The Huh. Thom;is F. Bayard, of
Delaware, has beeu nominated and con
firmed today iui ambassador extraordinary
and Plenipotentiary near her Britannic
Congress To He Called in Extra Session to
Tass a Tariff Kill.
Washington-, March 31. The Demo
cratic party in congress and the adminis
tration have settled upon a definite policy
,with reference to an extra tession. An un
derstanding has beeu reached, which is so
final and absolute that it has passed be
yond the realm of speculation, that uiem
lrs will be called toget her iu special ses
sion in the earlv autum and a tariff bill
passed through both houses and signed by
the ptesident before the 1st of Janrary,
lS'M, if it be possible to do so. All the lead
ers of the party in congress will leave
Washington with the full knowledge that
arrangements must not tie made which will
prevent their presence here by the 1st of
October, ami that it is desirable that they
should be prepared to come here during
Carlisle Will llox the .fob.
The tariff question will bo made the
leading issue of the session. Kverythir.g
that the administration can do to fa
cilitate the sieedy framing and passage
of a tariff revision bill will be done. This
work will be performe I by or under the
supervision of Secretary Carlisle. He will
get material together for the committee on
ways and means so that it may lose no
time in bringing a bill into the house.
Speaker Crisp is expected to have the
membership of this committee practically
decided on by the time the house assem
bles. Xo time will be wasted; within a
month or six weeks from the day congress
assembles in special session it is expected
that a tariff bill will be under considera
tion on the floor of the house.
Looks I'pon It as Settled.
The fact that this policy is so well stttli d
upon as to admit of no doubt save in the
possibility of some great unforeseen emer
gency is shown by the remarks of Repre
sentative Springer, chairman of the ways
and means committee, to an American
Press reporter yesterday who asked him if
majesty's government, this designation 5yttiiga liad been decided on as to an ex
ii a session.
"Oh," said Springer, as if he were speak
ing ol a thing of the past, "there will be an

provision contained in tje act gX conejress

of her majesty in appointing Sir Julian

tate this opportunity to assure you of
my tiighest personal regard."
Confirmed Without Reference.
Ex-Secretary Bayard's career as a senator
and secretary of state is too well-known
to need description. He has been so earnest
and true a Democrat and has stood so high
in party councils that there was nothing,
but commendation for it. The senate did
him the honor usually conferred on former
members of its body nominated to office by
confirming his nomination in active session
without the formality of referring it to a

SKETCHES OF THE APPOINTEES.
Peru Gets the Champion Kentucky Story
Teller. James A. McKenzie, who goes to Peru,
has the reputation of being one of the wit
tiest speakers and best story-tellers in the
tate of Kentucky. He is an ex-member of
Congress, twice in national conventions
made speeches seconding Cleveland's nom
ination to the presidency and is popular
Patrick Egan's Successor.
Governor Porter, of Tennessee, who suc
ceeds Patrick Egan at the Chilian capital,
was assistant secretary of state under

One Editor Not Barred.
Lewis Baker, who gets the mission to
Nicaragua, Costa Rica and San Salvador,
is editor of the St. Paul Globe and a leader
In Democratic politics in the Gopher state.
He formerly published a paper in Wheel
ing, W. Va.
Pierce M. B. Young, who goes to Guat
emala and Honduras as minister, is an ex
offioe holder of the Cleveland administra
. tion, but the point is made that this time
he his nominated to a different office than
he formerly held, so that the rule, it is
said, is not violated in his case. He was a
brilliant Confederate cavalry commander
daring the war and also served in congress.
Promotion of a Holdover.
Edwin Dun, the new Japanese minister,
is at present secretary of legation there,
having been appointed by President Cleve
land and been so efficient that he was re

Not the Leagt Doubt Abnntlt.
"Xoire at all. The only question was as
to whether one should be called in the
spring or in the fall. It was definitely
understood there was to be one. Mr. Car
lisle says there has been do change of pro
gramme and that there will be an extra
session early in the fall. I have not talked
with the president recently about it, biit
I am satisfied he has not changed bis
views. We will try to have a tariff bill
through congress before this year ends."

Ames, la., March 31. Dancing girls
from the sultan of Solo, a huge orang
outang, yelling and howling in fear in his
wooden prison, and five car loads of terri
fied Javanese, together with building ma
terial and exhibits for the World's fair,
were in a collision at Moingona, a little
station just west of Boon?, at S o'clock last
night. The party left Batavia, Java, on
Feb. 11 and, after touching at Hong Kong,
set sail for San Francisco on the steamship
Gaelic, which arrived at its destination one
week s.go. Early Saturday night the party
6tarted on the last run of the trip, which is
the greatest ever taken by any contingent
of natives from the archipelago.
Lost Control of the Engine.
After an uneventful ruu through Ne va-
da, Utah and Wyoming the train, which
was composed of twenty-six freight cars.
two baggage cars, four day coaches and a
sleeper, rolled into the Union station at
Omaha. Here the train was split into two
sections, the baggage cars and coaches pre
ceding the 1,100 tons of freight of the sec
ond section. All went weli until Moin
gona was reached, where the engineer of
the second section lost control of his en
gine and was powerless to prevent it crash
ing into the caboose which was coupled to
the sleeping car of the train containing
the Javanese and the men who were bring
ing them to Chicago. The engine of the
necond section was dismantled.
Had a Lively Shaking I" p.
The caboose was crushed and the little
6trangers were hurled over their
seats and straightened upon their
backs. The orang-outang howled
and clawed at the bars of his crate;
the priests rolled their eves and clasped
their hands as the Europeans and Ameri
cans in the sleeping car wno nau so nar
rowly escaped death began nursing the
heads that had been bruised in the crash.
Nobody was seriously injured, but if it
had not been for the empty caboose in
the rear of the train the big locomotive
of the freight section would have jammed
its pilot half way through the sleeper and
crushed the men who are bringing this in
teresting village to the exposition.
Composition of the Train.
The train, which will reach Chicago to
day, is composed of two baggage cars, four
X. mon Pacific coaches tilled with the
islanders, and a sleeping car in which the
syndicate, of, rather, a portion oit, is
quartered. This car has a red, white and
clue banner on either side, which proclaims
in large letters the fact that the train is
hurrying to a fair with native artisans and
actors from Borneo Java and Sumatra. i

FEATURES OF THE
the Ourang Outang, Gets
The Dancing Fir Is.
The ourang-outang is in the second bag
gage car. It was captured in Java while
a baby and is now five years old. The
beast is the biggest of his species now in
captivity.standing over four feet tall wtea
erect. His name is Gus. Ever since he
left San Francisco the huge monkey has
been sulkily covering his face with a mat
and refusing to be comforted. One day,
while on shipboard, the animal was per
mitted to leave his cage. He had been out
a few minutes, when he was smitten with
a desire to eat something.
Tried to Eat a Man's Leg.
He chewed away on Mr. Kalff's leg, and
this proving unsatisfactory he fell upon
Mr. Mundt, who is a stout man. The up
roar brought the natives on deck and they
finally succeeded in subjecting the beast
and pounding him back into his cage.
The orang-outang will not be a feature of
the Javanese village in midway plaisance,
but will be kept with the rest of the ani
mals on exhibition. The first three coaches
are filled with families and old men. Two
venerable high priests in greasy turbans,
who have been to Mecca and know all
about the Koran, sit close together.
They Aren't Exactly Pretty.
The priests who are with the party are
a sort of religious chaperones. They will
also marry any of the couples who con
clude to pool their issues. There are six
teen dancing girls, none married, but they
may have been, although they are aged
from 1 i to -0 years. It can scarcely be said
of them that they are pretty and yet they
possess much of the Asiatic beauty of the
Javanese women, the long, coarse, blue
black hair; mellow, laughing eyes, and the
dark, yellow complexion being particularly
Couldn't Wear Underclothes.
Until the Javanese placed foot on ship
board they had never worn stockings, shoes
or underclothing. These they found un
bearable before many hours.and during the
rest of their voyage they tramped around
in their native costume. While in San
Francisco they were induced to make an
other trial in brogans and stockings, but
these were again discarded as soon as the
party took seats in the cars, with the ex
ception of the coach containing the danc
ing girls, whose negligee dress and little
bare feet and arms are sufiiciently pictur
esque to attract attention.
Made a Mummy of Him.
Pittsburg, March 3'. At a meeting of
embalmers of the United States here yes
terday the body of Edward Jones, who
died a few days ago from injuries received
in a street fight at Harrisburg. was mum
mified. The dead man's relatives reside in
London and are said to be wealthy. It is
said it is the intention to ship-4be body to
r.ugiana. i-rotessor bulllvan, of Louis
ville, Ky., who superintended the work of
embalming, claims that the body will keep
for ages. .
Trouble About the Strip.
Tahlequaii, I. T., March 31. The Cher
okee council has split wide open over the
portion of the chief's message recommend
ing the appointment of commissioners to
go to Washington to close the Cherokee
strip deal. The national party will fight
bitterly any plan other than having the
settlement and the cash paid over in Tahle
