tary Carlisle Is a candidate for the
presidential nomination and tho pub
lic announcement to that elTect will
soon bo made bygone of the secretary's
close friends In the semite: This
announcement, however, will not be
made until President Cleveland has
formally stated his purpose not to
permit his name to be used In the
convention In connection with the
third term. It Is learned on excell
ent authority that the president has
fully decided on his course , and. It Is
expected he will make known his
determination within a short time.
Although Secretary Olney has been
considered by Democratic leadors, It
Is known he docs not desire a nohifna
Uon. It Is undoubtedly true Carlisle's
candidacy will have- the suppdrt of
Mr. Clovcland and tho members of
the cabinet. He will go before tho
country as a representative of 'sound
money views. .. ..i
Ills friends In conducting thQ.pait,
vass for his nomination will urgo that
It bo mnde upon a sound money plat
f 6rm and If ho bo successful at Chica
go, will make this tho paramount
lssuo In tho campaign leading up to
tho November elections.
Representative Patterson, of Tenn
essee, has received from Mr. Carllslo a
long letter In response to ex-Speaker
Crisp's declaration that silver had
received unfriendly treatment at tho
secretary's hands. In the speech de
livered In the house on tho 14th of
February tho ex-speaker said:
"He," meaning tho secretary of tho
treasury, "refuses to give silver for
gold because ho must hold tho silver
to pay silver certltlcates and Sherman
notes Issued under tho act of 1890 arc
presented ho redeems them In gold
and not In silver. What measure Is
this? What sort of friendly treat
ment Is accorded silver by this law
and practlco that obtains nt the
treasury of the United States?"
Mr, Carllslo In his reply to tho letter
written by Representative Patterson
says: "In answor to your question I
can only say that in all the operations
In tho treasury department In my ad
ministration of Its affairs, legal tender
gold and silver certificates have been
treated alike except that greater cf
orts have been made to keep silver
coin In circulation. Tho amount paid
out for this department In silver coins
and sliver certificates greatly exceeds
the amount paid ont In gold coins and
gold certificates, and In no Instance
has tho least discrimination been
made against sliver or Us paper repre
sentative. "In no Instance has sllvcar or silver
certificates been refused In payment
of a debt or demand due tho govern
ment and In no instance has the gov
ernment refused to pay sliver coins or
silver certificates In discharging Its
obligations when the holders of obli
gations demanded or requested such
payment, When United States notes
or treasury notes are presented for re

After a long debate, In which the

the following facts:
That Mrs. Stockton was not woman

A Salem correspondent of tho Qre
gonlati writes: "Republicans threw
off tholr coats today and wont to work
lu earnest to try to effect an under
standing as to who shall bo scut as
delegates from tho different wards
and preclnctH. to tho county conven
tion. It Is a herculean taHli, and a'
largo vote at tho primary election,
which will lo held In tho county
n.oxt Friday, will bo the result.
The long list of candidates for county
offices, supplemented by congres
sional candidates and candidates for
district attorney, makes It Impossible
to arrange any but an unpledged slate
that will not meet formidable opposl
tlon. Realizing this, xomo of tho
political workers have started In to
put up only unpledged tickets.
Obstacles In tho way of carrying out
this plan, however, aro found, as
friends of some of tho candidates
want no delegates who will not go to
tho convention pledged. The situ
ation Is as yet chaotic."
It la now formally announced that
that popular young Republican attor
ney, J. If. McNary, has withdrawn
or rather declined to permit tho use
of Ills name as a possible candidate
for tho position of district attorney.
This leaves tho field open to but four
candidates, viz: Jas. McCain, the

KXTRAVAOANCE OF THE SENATE.
Senator Chandler has been Investi
gating tho senate's extravagances.
Tho results of his researches mora
than Justify nil Unit has been said In
tho nowspaperson the subject. The
senator finds that the roll of employes'
of the senate has been growing until
It has now reached the startling mi la
bor of .153. Among theso are 121 clerks,
67 messengers, C2 laborers, 23 pages, 18
folders, 15 policemen, 7 mail carriers,
8 watchmen, and so on. The senate
employes draw 482,000 annually. Tho
striking feature Is tho rapid Increase
In tho number of persons required to
mako official life comfortable for tho
nlnoty senators. This pay-roll was.
$317,031 in 1687. It has been increased
9175,000 tn nlno years.
The salaries and mileage of tho
nlnoty senators Is $180,000 annually.
So It appears that tho cost ot the help.
Is a llttlo mora than' tho cost of the
senators. Besides tho enormous sal
ury account of tho employes the sena
tors manago to got away with $175,-
OOOaycarfor various Incidentals, or
for "contingent expenses," as tho re
port has It. Nino years ago tho son
nto spent $157,232 for employes and on
contingent account. In 1801 these ex
penses reached $000,189. Last year
tho senate had a Bpasm of economy,
and got away with only $018,201, be
sides salarlcb and mileage. These
figures compiled by Senator Chandler
show there arc about foiir'employcsto
"It must bo manifest," says Sona
tor Chandler, "upon tho briefest pos
sible consideration given to tho sub
ject, that tho force Is excessive and
extravagant. "Deduct from tho 121
clerkH and ninety secretaries of sena
tors and there remain thlrty-ouo
clerks, Theso might not lie in excess
If it woro not for tho targd additional
forco described lu tho lint. What aro
fifty-seven messengers and fifty-two
laborers doing? Itcanuot bo potxtlblo
that they aro all usefully employed,
giving full 6crvlco for themonoy re
ceived by them.
"Into tho details of the expendi
tures of tho senate, which have grown
so cnormoiuly, I havo not been able to
go. Thoso details should bo Investi
gated with a view te tho dismissal of
every surplus cmployo and the omis
sion hereafter of every needless ex
penditure. It is Impossible that the
public service required BUchVoHtlays.
Tho senate wing of tho Capltol Is
kept In repair by tho architect and
guarded by tho Capltol police. For
tho comfort within the senate wing
of the ninety senators and to enable
them to perform their functions it
cannot bo possible that 358 officers
und employes, ut an annual salary of
$482,000, are necessary, and In addi

$105,000. There Is fault In some ene:
