Don't you want one for your

Our selection of boys' and

CAPITOL GOSSIP
MR. ENLOK'S CHARGES AGAINST
rOSTMASTEItWHEVT.
IHE HOUSE ADOPTS HIS RESOLUTION,
But in the Meantime the Teonetwean
and the Speaker
INDULGE IN A UTILE WAR OF WORDS.
Kennedy's Billeresl Remarks Oeraing
from Enlw's Mouth Will SHU
Remain ia the Reeerd.
Mr. Enloc of Tonttcteeo to day pre
sented a resolution, as a question of
privilege, which stated that lth alleged
that the Postmaster of the House hat
on tho Toll of his employes at $100 a
month a Mr. 11 rati ley, who works In the
Government Printing Ofllce, and that
said Bradley pays $50 a month to the
eon of tho Postmaster, who does not
work In the Postofllce, and directing
the Committee on Accounts to Investi
gate the alienations.
In spooking to the resolution Mr.
Knloc rcforred to tho resolution offered
by him yesterday, and complained of
his being deprived of the floor In a
parliamentary, but unfair, manner.
The Speaker suggested that tho gcn
tlcman was out of order In not confining
himself to the resolution under con
((deration.
Mr. Union retorted that sometimes it
appeared that the Speaker saw gentle
men on tho Democratic stilo out ot order
much more nulckly than ho did gentle
men on the ltcpubllcan side.
The Speaker replied that. In some In
stances, tho gentlemen on tho Demo
cratic side were much more clearly out
of order.
Mr. Illount was also called to order
for not speaking dtrectlv to tho matter
under consideration. lie resented this,
and declared that only the other day,
when the resolution expunging the
Kennedy speech from the litoord was
undor comlderatlon, Mr. Kennedy had
been permitted to go on for twenty
minutes roaltlrmlng that speech.
The Speaker Inquired whether the
gentleman from Georgia had ob
jected. Mr. Illount replied that there were
times when the Speaker should ob
ject. The Speaker tald that he had seen
nothing In the remarks of the gentle
man from Ohio that called for Inter
ference. The gentleman had lieen al
lowed by the House to make an explana
tion. Mr. Illount remarked that the ex
planation was a reiteration of the
tifense.
The Chair did not think so. No oae
had objected to It.
Mr. Illount retorted that no oae had
objected to the delivery of the first
speech not even the Speaker.
The Speaker thoueht the geatletttaa
did not mean to Incorporate In TiU speech
an Intimation that the pnseot oeeupaat
was In the chair.
Mr. IllouBt said he did not mean the
picsent occupant,
Mr. Knloe again took the floor. lie
alluded to Kennedy and was called to
order. He objeeled, aad said the
Speaker had allowed geatUiaaa oa both
sides a great range In discussing que
lions of privilege. He Instanced Mr.
llogers of Arkassas, who, oa suek a
ques4ka. had beea allowed to speak
for an hour, attacking the Speaker aa
at'ack which the Speaker had takea
very courteously.
The Speaker admitted that Mr. Rogers
had Buuk attacks oa the Chair wlileb
ought not to have beea permitted.

of Virginia ami Frank W. McCommleo
of Texas bad a trial at fisticuffs, from
the effects of which Taliaferro died a

point of honor at stake, and the two
young men, respectively about 16 and 13
years of age, repaired to one of the
society halls, hail their seconds, aad
drew the ring.
The fight lasted about half an hour,
tad both were badly bruised. Taliaferro
went to hit room with hit nose bleed

sgala. His death was only discovered
late yesterday afternoon.
The town U both excited ami ills

evenly matched as to size, and the fight
was fair.

HARRISON 8 TREATMENT OF HUSTON.
The Man Who Worked Night and Day
and Spnt His Mowj for Him,
THE TREASURER EXHAUSTS HIS PATIENCE
And Is Making Hasty Preparations te R
tarn te His Indiana Honw Will
RMifH Wilkin Three Wttks.
CtiH'Aoo. J5cpt. a5. A dispatch to
the 7ntM from Connersvllle, Intl.,
says: James X. Huston, tieasurer of
the United States, will resign hit office
within three weeks and return to this
city. The exact date of his resignation
has not been decided upon, but It will
be sent to 1'rttlilent Harrison as soon as
Mr. Huston's residence Is ready for
occupancy. Tor several months work
men have been btiy In tho house, and
as soon as tlicy mote out Treasurer
Huston will sever his connection with
tho Administration and move In.
Friends of the President arc urging
him to remain In Washington and
hold back his resignation until after
the Indiana elections. It Is even said
that the President has made
A fKttfONAL AITEAT.
to Mr. Huston, begging him to at least
tacitly refute tho stories ot their quirrols
by remaining In ofllce a few months
longer. Nono of those appeals has
swerved tbo treasurer from hU inten
tions. He will cut loose from Harrison
at a time when his retirement will be
most regretted and when the Prosldont
has greatest need of friends In Indiana
Ir nn Indorsement of the Administration

pen tied upon Huston's preserving n sent
bianco of friendship for Harrison It
would be repudiated.
THE MASK OK rntKSDSIttP
lias been dlicardcd, and, as between the
Harrison nnd Grcsham forces In this
Slate, Huston will undoubtedly throw
bis Influence to the Utter.
The ttory of the friendship of these
two men Is a record of self sacrificing
loyalty and devotion on HuMon'a part
and callous Ingratitude on Harrison's.
Among those who are familiar with
their relations durlntr the last three
yeais the greatest astonishment Is ex
prccd that the nervous and quick
tempered Treasurer bore the arrogance
and Insults of Harrison as long as he
has. For years before hit elevation to
the Presidency Mr. Harrison found It
advantageous to himself and to his fam
ily to
CUI.THATK THE UCSTOXS.
The Treasurer It distinguished for
the splendor and cordiality of hU enter
tainments. Ills palatial home, occupy
ing thu most picturesque site In Ibis
city, has been the scene of many royal
gatherings. The retldence, surrounded
by sturdy forest trees, stands In the
centre of a twenty acre lawn that slope
gradually to the river. Four thousand
acres of fertile farming land constitute
a small portion of Mr. Huston's taxable
proimrty in this county. With almost
unlimited resources at hit command
and
A CHAUMINO WIPE
whose Kentucky hospitality is celebra
ted throughout the State, Huston enter
tained bit friends on a scale of magnifi
cence that would be dimcult to surpass.
Mr. Harrlsou for a number of years was
among tbe raoit frequent guektt at the
Huston homestead. When the Treas
urer drifted into politics and assumed
the leadership of the Itepubllean side
of the Indiana Senate be ami Harrison
became Inseparable friends. After tie
defeat of the Itepubllean national ticket
In Ib&l. when the President was a can
didate for re election to the Senate, be
selected Huston to conduct the cam
paign. The party, disorganized by de
tent and disheartened by the prospect of
IntlBc a Untied States Senator, was la no
condition for an aggressive campaign.
Harrison bad none of tba elements of
kuceessful leadership. His candidacy
did not enthuse the voters. Naturally
chilly xxd Aivrnns,
be was practically inacceeaibU to moat
of the leading Republicans of Indiana
during bis Senatorial career. He found
it extremely ditncult to descend front
tbe lufiy beixhtt of his Senatorial
redtsiel and wlngla with the bums who
make legislatures. The aasuaiptioB of
dignity did not Imprest kit aatiakla
Ilootkr constituents favorably, aad
when ke eatae koute to stand for re
eketioa the outlook for Republican sue
east wat decidedly unpropitious.

plan of action for the following dy.
Although the liattle was lost, the chair
man came out with a reputation at a
fighter equaled only by his fanw as an
organizer.
"They have beaten him for the Sen
ate, but we will make him PraMdent."
Huston remtiked after the strnagle was
ovtr. During the summer months of
15S8, Harrison hwl no mote enthntlasttc
champltm than Mr. Huston. His bud
new Interests were abandoned Altogether
In hit efforts lo advance the camthlfrcy
of the
DETIIRORHD STATRSWIIN.
After the Chicago convention he rime
home, and from that time until the
polls closed, gave all bis time to the
Indiana ctmpelRn. "That election,"
mhl one of the treasurer's closest
ftlendt, "cost Mr. Huston $00,000 of
his own money. I know what 1 am
talking about, when I say that he spent
that amount In gold to hold this State In
line, lfock In" Huston's bank there
stands a heavy safe that contained
$0,000, and, when the election was
over, there was not a dollar of It left.
Ncls Huston Is not a man to split
?;uinet in any transaction, much test
n politics. 'He used to come home
from Indianapolis every Saturday night
carrying an old leather hand-tag, and,
when lie returned to headquarters
Monday morning, It was full of gold.
I do not My that he would have paid
this money out had lie known that it
would never be returned, for he prob
ably expected that the committee
would reimburse him. Hut what I do
know Is, that
IIK 81'KXT KVBnV DOM.Att
ot that pile of gold for Harrison and
has not been repaid. Ho was treas
urer of the committee as well as chair
man and carried the money, after con
verting It into currency, In his pockets,
not even depositing It In banks. When
he turned tho books over there was a
balance of $11,000 on hand.
Everybody sumiosed that Huston
would be made Secretary of the Treas
ury. It was taken for granted that ho
coulcd bavo anything lie wanted, and
being a financier of great ability, he
was early scheduled for tho Treasury
portfolio. The only Indiana man whose
interests were thought to conflict with
Huston's, was John C. New. Miller's
name was not mentioned In connection
with any Important office, much less a
Cabinet position. Mr. New's morel
nary instincts disqualified him for a
seat In the Cabinet and Huston's way
was thought to be clear, but the Presi
dent astonished all of his friends by
Ignoring the chairman and c.tlllntr his
law partner luto the Cabinet. This
r.xtuniTiox op ixnii.vriTtrDK
at ouco dcmornlled the party In In
dlana, for Huston was recognized as
the architect of the President's political
fortunes. It was with the utmost diffi
culty that he coul I bo persuaded to
accept the Treasurer's Office. An appeal
to stand by the President In one more
emergency and give him the undivided
tuppoit of the Stato at the Inauguration
of his .administration Induced Huston
to forglvo the Injustice and accept a
minor place In the party councils.
The chasm between the President and
Tresmnr steadily widened after they
reached Washington. Harrison, who
for several j ears had most assiduously
patroulzed the Fayette leader, suddenly
changed his bearing and became
HAIIITUAI.I.V CONDKCKXIINfl
In his relations with the Treasurer.
This was a revelation to Huston, whose
Impoitance In the Indiana social world
had never before been questioned, much
leas by the Harrisons. The last evi
dence of Presidential ingratitude hurt
the proud leader most of all, ami after
he U'tume convinced that It wat not
small pique or tboughtletsnett on Har
rison's part he determined to sever tbe
last tie that bound him to the President
and notified friends here of hit ap
I teaching resignation.

Hiitois, Pa., Sept. 86. C. F. Krebi
of Clarion County was nominated at
llldgway yesterday for Congress to suc
ceed Jsmes Kerr, by the Democratic
conferrces of the Twenty eighth dis
trict. The nomination waa made on
the fourteenth ballot. Clarion, Forest
and 1'lk counties voted for Krebs, and
Clearfield and Centre for Kerr. The
action of the conference It a surprise,
as It has not been thought at anytime
that Kerr, who Is the Democratic State
chairman, would have serious trouble
In securing a renomlnallon.
Kerr owes his defeat to n bargain
made at the recent Democratic Sena
torial Convention, when Hall of Klk
County was nominated by the votes of
Clarion. In return for this, Klk yes
terday voted for Krebs for Congres
and Forest Joined In on the principle
that It was well for all the counties of
the Senatorial district to stick together.
The nominee Is a lawyer and editor
of the Clarion Democrat. There It
great dissatisfaction In Centre and Clear
field counties over the result.

Tilmbleton of the Seventh United

Sill, nested through Pittsburg yester
day, llesajs the greatest Indian up
rising of modern timet It certainly to
come scon. The tndlsns, he says,
have got tbe Idea that the Great
Medicine Man Is coming to wipe out the
whiles ami testate to them the owner
ship of the country. The result is that
they have entered with the fervor of
fanatics upon a series of Incantations
and religious orgies. The 5,000 Indians
about Fort Sill have renounced Chris
tianity, and he Is certain that in a short
time somebody will pretend lo be the
Great Medicine Man, and then the
trouble will begin. He thinks all the
United States garrisons should lie
doubled.
