The great piano contest is at an end,
and C M. Kaup, whose family resides at
102:5 Booth Jefferson street, made the
best use of his faculty for guessing. He
wins the piano. Xo doubt the many com?
petitors have been anxiously nwaiting a
decision in this contest, but The Times
desired to be absolutely certain of cor?
rect figures before submitting the vast
i.umber oi ballots to the committee for
inspection and decision. It was only
within the past'week that such llgurcs
were obtainable, and the committee nt
once started in on the laborious task
which coal routed them.
When one thinks of examining separ?
ately nearly 250,(KM) separate ballots, each
one to lie scanned closely ami a tally kept,
the amount of work?accurate work?that
was done by this committee can be ap?
The Times is- certainly under many ob?
ligations t<> the committee for the pains?
taking, strictly accurate work which
they performed. The committee was
composed of W. Thomas, clerk of the
City Council, and W. 1-'. Bryant, deputy
clerk of the courts, the very efficient as
sistant. of ('apt. S. S. Brooke.
C. m. llaup, the lucky man, resided 'at
til Seventh avenue b w., at the time ho
made his guess, as is shown by the dup?
licate coupon printed herewith. lit* has
since gone to Pennsylvania, where he is
now in business, and his family now re?
sides at ID2'j South FelTorson street,
where a Times reporter found Mrs. Kaup
yesterday afternoon and informed her of
her good fortune. Mr. and Mr--. Kaup
have two bright boys, but no girls to en?
joy the luxury of .this .elegant Jewctt
piano, which is valued at $-100 and is a

Five Annual Appropriation Bills
Lack His Signature,
Mit. cleveland refused to
sign these important MEA?
sures because he WAS not
given sufficient TIME FOR A
careful scrutiny OF their
contents -A very proper re?
buke TO tardy legislation.
Washington, March 4.?Five of the an?
nual appropriation bills failed to become
luw.s owing to the refusal of the Presi?
dent to approve them. The stiudry civil,
the naval, the Indian and the agricultu?
ral bills reached the White House so late
that Mr. Cleveland was unable to give
ihem that close scrutiny upon which be
insists. He therefore refused to sign any
ol them. The general deficiency bill fail?
ed to reach hint owing to the failure of
the conferees to reach an agreement. This
is the record-breaker in the history of
the Government. The ngricultuial bill
was sent to the President February 25,
while the others only reached him during
the late, hours of the session.
The refusal of the President to approve
of these, bills compels a more thorough
organization of the House of Kej resenta
tives than was intended by Speaker Keed.
Under the rules of the House the Indian
bill is considered by the Indian commit?
tee; the naval bill by the naval commit?
tee, and the agricultural bill by the agri?
cultural committee. Of these bills that
failed only tin; sundry civil was reported
by the committee on appropriations. To
this extent the House will have to be or?
ganized by the appointment of commit?
tees more general in their character than
was intended by Speakei Reed.
No new estimates will he needed and
the bills will probably be rushed through
the House at the earliest possible mo?
ment. It is the intention of the Repub
1 lican leaders to take the present esti?
mates anil base their bills upon them and
if this can he done, but little time will be
consumed in the consideration of these
measures. That the act lor. of the retir?
ing President will prolong the extra SCS
sion of Congress no one doubts.
Upon his arrival at the Capitol the bill
to provide for a commission to create a
labor commission was presented to Presi?
dent Cleveland, but acting upon the ad?
vice of Secretary Carlisle he declined to
sign it owing to the impossibility of as?
certaining what the provision of the hill
contemplated. This is the measure upon
w hich the debate of last night hinged.
President McKinley will to-morrow is?
sue his proclamation for an extra session.
It will be called to meet March 10, which
tails on Monday.
At the dinner given last night at Mr.
I John llay's.the President-elect was asked
.about this extra session and the sugges?
tion was made that he set the day for
Saturday, March 20.

The Lucky Guess Was a Very Glos
der of Mrs. Wright. The committee's re?
port here follows:
Ronnoke, Vn., March 1. 1807.
Mr. M. H. Claytor, Editor ami Manager,
Dear Sir: The umlersigned committee
appointed by you for the purpose of mak?
ing a canvass of the coupons printed in
The Times during the hist Presidential
campaign, and tilled out by your readers
in a contest for ti piano and for a sew
ing machine, bee leave to report that
they have performed the duly assigned to
them, and submit the following:
There were delivered to the committee
live large packages of envelopes sealed,
containing the coupons to the amount of
about 25O,(.'0O, also the number of popu?
lar votes (rast in the la.-t Presidential elec?
tion. The conditions of the contest were
thai the person guessing nearest to the
popular vote east would In- entitled to re?
ceive a piano, and the person putting iu
the largest, number of coupon guesses
should receive a sewing machine.
We lirst met on Monday night, March
1st,and again on Wednesday night, March
Sid, when we completed the work. .Mr.
W. K. Andrews, a member of the com?
mittee, being unable to be present., we
called in on Wednesday night, Mr. 1'. 11.
Tucker and Mr. J. B. Trnyohnm, to as
sist u" in the work. For their services
the committee is very grateful.
Wo examined each coupon closely and
preserved all ol those which were within
20,0110 of ?he total popular vote; and in
the contest for the sewing machine, we
kept tally of those who seemed to stand
any chance at all in this particular. The
latter contest was soon settled between
about three persons, with one much in
the lead, which position was maintained
until t he end.
The total popular vote, which you fur?
nished us, was taken from the Chicago
Daily News election tables, and seems to
be the most thorough and accurate yet
published. Th* following schedule shows
the winner in the piano contest, and also
twenty of the nearest guesses to the cor?
rect number, in their order:

Mrs. Cleveland's Sweet Person?
ality Still in Evidence.
SHE EXPERIENCED A MOST EM?
BARRASSING DELAY AT THE
WHITE H?L SE WHILE WAITING
FOR MRS. M'KINLEY'S RETURN
FROM Till-: CAPITOL?SHE WAS
AFFECTED TO TEAR'S UPON
LEAVING THE MANSION.
Washington, March 4.?It was twenty
minutes past- 2 o'clock when Mrs. McKin
ley and her party drove up to the front
portico pf the White House. The delay,
occasioned by stopping to take lunch at
the capitol, was most embarrassing.
Mrs. Cleveland, with Brigadier General
Wilson, ex-Secretary Latnont and Mr.
Thurber had been waiting to receive Mrs.
McKinley fully an hour on the sunny
rear porch, the tedious delay meaning
more to Mrs. Cleveland than any one else,
for she had determined at. any personal
inconvenience to welcome Mrs. McKinley,
and the loss of an hour would cause her
not only to miss saying farewell to the
ladies at Secretary Lamont's, but also
prevent her saying good-bye to her hus?
band before he started South. The. first
duty she was eventually to hurriedly to
accomplish, but she. was much disap?
pointed at being unable to go, as she had
intended to do, to bid Mr. Cleveland fare?
well at the wharf. She had prepared
with her own bauds a beautiful bouquet
of La France roses and lilacs, fastened
with broad pink streamers, for her succes?
sor, which were placed in the private
bed-room, to which she had given several
last touches before defending jto the por?
tico. Mrs. Cleveland wore a dark green
travelling dress, w ith broad purple velret
trimming on the jucket anil a black f.-lt
hat with lilac ribbons, and everyone at
the White House said she never looked
Within three minutes Mrs. Cleveland
had said ti pleasant word to each ol the
servants, and had bidden Mrs. McKinley
an affectionate farewell. Then with tears
iu her eyes she entered Secretary
Lnmont's carriage and was driven rapidly
to his house, w here the retiring Cabinet
billies were Waiting at her luncheon. She
w as compelled to hasten her departure,
however, and with a hurried hand-shako
and a kiss to those who had been her
nearest frietpls, she was off again to the
station with Secretary Thurbcr, and at.
o'clock, the very moment Mr. Cleve?
land was leaving the White Hons,-, his
wife, in a speclal^carjleft Washington for
her future home at Princeton.
At 3 o'clock Mrs. McKinley'was as?
sisted to the reviewing stund in front of

by her entire party of family and friends,

Havana, March 4.?Captain General
Weyler arrived here, ut !1 o'clock this af?
ternoon on the transport Legazpi from
Caibarif, province ot Santa Clara. He
was accompanied by the members of his
stall". The arrival of the party was not
expected so soon and when the signals
on Morro Castle announced that the Re
ga/.pi was to the eastward bound in, the
news spread rapidly and caused a sensa?
tion among the Spaniards, who could not
imagine why the Captain General should
have hurried to reach Havana.
General Weyler landed at the Mnolle
ile Cahollcrhi, which is but a short d!s
tunce from the palace. Here he was re?
ceived by the Martinis de Ahumada, who
has been acting in his stead dining I.is
absence, and other authorities. There
was no great crowd present, and the
scene w as vast I v di tVerent from that which
characterized his return from the pacifi?
cation of the province of Pinar del Rio.
Instead of tilling through crowds of
cheering admirers he walked from tin
water side to the palace,"where he soon
retired to Iiis apartments, without hav?
ing received any popular welcome. This
was due, perhaps, to his unexpected ar?
rival, which del not allow of any oflicial
preparations being, made to welcome
No reason is given for General Weylcr'g
return to Havana. It, is generally well
known that, his campaign in Matan/.as
and Santa Clara lias been an ignominious
failure and that while he was claiming
to have compelled tte insurgents to re?
treat eastward to Puerto Principe, they
had, in fact, dodged past his col ttinns and
pursued their way westward.
It is thought that the change in the ad
ministration in Washington may have
much, if not all, to do with his return,
as he has been led to believe that Presi?
dent McKinley will not sanction the il?
legal arrest and detention of American
citizens, which in many cases passed

RIGHT TURNED IN THE LARGEST

it will be seen from the above schedule
that"ir. C. M. Raup is the winner of the
piano, bas ing come within 11 votes of
the exact number. The best guesses
made by children two Mabel Middagh,
14,000,840, and Willie Sheehan, 14,000,
About 05 per cent, of the guesses were
in the 18 million list: but a great many
of them covered every imaginable num?
ber, sometimes too great to be easily enu?
merated, and certainly too great for the
Unite mind to grasp. The following are
some of the highest and lowest guesses:
Daniel Yates, 140,000,001,000,000.
Sadie Clark, 1,480,011,014,
C K. Kibble, 241,811,210.
Harry Green, 102,000,000.
Stulei Clark, 12,001.
There wen- a great many out of town
guesses, hut only one was close enough
to be mentioned ill the first, list above.
Some of the guessers were very syste?
matic in the arrangement of their num?
bers, and had they gone high enough the
contest might have been dlh"ere?t.
The sewing machine contest was set?
tled in the following manner: Whenever
an envelope was opened containing cou?
pons (ruin any contestant with any pos?
sible chance of winning, the number of
COUpon? presented were tallied under the
name of the contestant. The result of
this contest is as follows:
Mrs. W. .1. Wright, 3,447 guesses,
c. ll. llix, l.SSs guesses,
s. M. Woodward, 1,250 guesses.
Several other persons had quite a num?
ber :>f coupons, but, none of them exceed?
ed 1,000. Among these may be mention?
ed W. W. Anderson wiih S'.'il ami I. It,
Bean with 317.
Mrs. W. .1. Wright is therefore the
winner of the. sewing machine, being
largely in excess of all other competitors.
