We take pleasure in informing the thousands of readers of TIni SUNnAy IN . PENDENT that in connection with the New York Sun, St. Louis Republic, San F'rancisco Examiner and a few other journals, we have seoured the right to publish as a serial Mark Twain's forth 4oming new novel, "The American Claimant." The opening chapter will appear in THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT Of January 3, and the story will run for about three months. It is the greatest work that Mark Twain has undertaken since the appearance of "The Gilded Age," and it reintroduces to the public the immortal Mullberry Sellers. 'This time the colonel turns up in pursuit of an English earldom. He has lost none of his old time buoyancy and hopeful nese, and his ups and downs among the nobility of England, his ludicrous ad ventures in attempting to adapt him self to a mode of life to which he is not accustomed, give the great humorist a fine field for his fancy. The scene is laid in two continents and takes the redoubt able colonel back to his old stamping ground, Washington. The story is founded on one of Mark Twain's own 1 experiences, he himself having at one time (as he thought) a possibility of gaining a titled estate through his mother's ancestors. "The American Claimant" unques tionably will be the literary event of the new year, and every reader of THE IN DEPENDENT, we are sure, will await wiih impatience the successive chapters in this interesting romance. The story will be illustrated by Dan Beard, who -made the pictures for Mark Twain's latest book, "A Yankee at the Court of King Arthur," and who is the best in terpreter of the inimitable humor of the great author. Mail subscribers desiring to get the opening chapters of the story should send in their subscriptions at once. and news dealers should plhce their orders for extra copies promintly. aneir oraers sor extra copies promptly, THE HOUSE OOMMITTEES. Speaker Crisp had a very difficul duty to perform in making up the standing committees of the house of representa tives and it is not probable that he will escape criticism for obvious sins of om mission and commission. We think his first and greatest mistake was in not re appointing Mr. Mills chairman of the ways and means committee-or rather in humiliating Mr. Mills by tendering him second place on that committee. Mr. Springer, the new chairman, is an able, honest, experienced memb.,r on the house, and an earnest friend of tariff re form. So long as Mr. Mills was to be set aside, no fault can be found with the selection of Mr. Springer. The ways and means commnitteo is formed almost wholly of new material on the demo cratic side. 'Turner, of (leorgia, Mc Millin, of Tennessee, and Wilson, of West Virginia, tre the old members of the committee in the Fiftieth congress who are retained. The new m.a are Mont gomery, of Kentucky, Whiting, of Mich igan, Shively, of Indiana, Stevens, of Massachusetts, and Bryan, of Nebraska. Montgomery is a weak substitute for W. C. P. Breckenridge and Shively cldoes not fill Bynum's shoes. Springer, Turner, MoMillin and Wilson will furnish the democratic brains for this committee. William Steele Iiolnan will make an admirable head for the appropriations committee. HIe is tried and true, every time. "Forney, Sayres, I)o:kery and the two Breckenridges will "ivi itii a strolng support. Silver Dollar l!a id i:htfully goes back to th ,:hairim r-.a i , of coin age, weigliti iod ml aur..., anad Itrirert to the head of Ir: 1 rf ar,. Mr. Mills takes Splk;v (Ci up, ii ut Iphic as chair man of thie colleiorce co llllittee, and Mr. )Outhwaite, vwho was cihairman of I ie Paciic raiiroadLs cl iii mtee in the Fit- tieth congress, is trausferred to the head of military affairs. The committee on mines and mining is a curious aggregation that can only be accounted for on the theory that at this point Mr. Crisp began to pay polit ical debts. The chairman is a Mr. Cou les, of North Ciarolina, and those great mining conmmunities, Indiana, Arkansas and the Sixth ward of New York city, got the next three places. Mr. Crisp had plenty of better material, and there is no excuse for such work as that. Judge I)ixon represents Montana on the coumitltees on irrigation and labor, two posts wh.era lie will render good ser vice, but, as the only deirbcratic mem bar from a silver state, he should have been placed on one of the eommuittees having to deal with our chief interest. However, Speaker Crisp is all right or the mamc issues. 'JTen good tarilf re P odemoorats are on ways and meani anad ai e good friends of silver are or the coinage committee. -----.--. -.-·-= --- .

He coudki have ' Instanced a far Worse onee'than this in Connecticut, where the republicans are in both legislative houses the bene. l' flaries of a gerrymander which is but tressed not behind a statute, but the more solid and enduring ramparts of a state constitution. As to the lower g house cf congress, the president would 0 have found one town with a population of 86,045 equalized with another town having a populftion of but 431; and as a to the state senate, a district which at the presidential election of 1888 cast 17, ( 49 votes equalized with another district casting but 2,583 votes. HIo a the sys tem worlrs in the upper house of con gress may be shown by the case of e United States Senator O. H. Platt, who was rolented last January by 141 repub lican members of the Connecticut legis lature, representing towns and districts casting only 73,141 votes, while there were opposed to him 134 members re pressnting 193,840 votes. If Senator Piatt, or his colleague, Senator Hawley, have occasion during this session to re fer to the president's views in his mes sage on either 'gerrymanders' or the suppression of the suffrage at the south they will, of course, tell us all about this peculiar Connecticut system, but for which their own seats would now be filled by two democrats. The two re publican senators from Rhode Island, where the little towns outvote in the legislature the cities and large towns with many times their population, stand in very much the same ironical predica ment." The gerrymander in New York state affords a still inure striking illustration of the iniquity of the republican gerry nmanderers. IIad there been no gerryman dering, Mr. Harrisor. would have sent his annual message to a democratic United States senate. THiERE 18 more significance In the ap pointment of Senator Teller to the chairmanship of the senate committee on privileges and elections than appears at first glance. Mr. Hloar was chairman of this commuittee in the last congress. He was the father and stalwart cham pion of the force bill, which was de feated chiefly through the refusal of Teller to support it. Mr. Teller now goes to the he head of the committee. In stead of being punished for his obdur acy, in opposing the federal election law, he is promoted. The republican leaders evidently have seen a great light and want to bury the force bill out of the sight and memory of men. OaR republican friends who have been pretending to be filled with concern be cause the seat of Evarts in the senate was vacant for a few days while con gress was doing nothing, can celebrate the holidays in the assurance that the country is safe. David Bennett Hill will appear in his seat when congress re assembles after the holidays, and his chair at Albany will be filled by a mirhtv good democrat. too. ii.,aýieyJ gvv. uvauuu ouv TIIE BOOK TABLE. HEADING AND SPF1aING: FAMILIAR TALKS TO YOUNG MEN WHO WOULI, Si'EAK WELL IN PoInc. By Brainard Gardener Smith, A. H., associate professor of elocution and oratory in Cornell university. Boa ton:D. C., Heath & Co. Americans are a race of talkers and speech makers. We have many forcible and elo quent public speakers in every walk of life, yet few true orators and still fewer good elocutionists whose style and manner are not open to severe criticism. In the ideal republic every man should be a good pub lic speaker. And if the boys would read and profit by the sensible rules laid down by the little book before us the next gener ation of men would be far in advance of the present in the art of all arts. From long experience as a teacher and trainer of youth Prof. Smith is abundantly qualified to speak with authority on the subject with which he deals. The students who have been under his careful training all bear testimony by their own improved style of publio speaking that he is master of his subject. He makes no pretense in this lit tle volume to evolve any new theories. He rather adopts from all sources the rules that have stood the test of experience and grouped them in convenient form for classes in colleges and high schools, and for the general reader. It is a book we can heartily commend to every person young or old who desires to attain a correct and pleasing manner of speech in public or in private. Appended to the book are excellent selec tions of declamations intended for the use of students. THE GRINDINI( OF THE MILLS. My name is Mills? 'Think so? Well it i.n't! ]t' lltld.

It will be fofioally known ir so hereafter, tenderfeet to the contrary not d withstanding. n The entertainment for the benefit of the n Workmnwoman's home should attract a s large audience at Mings to-morrow evening. I There are two reasons. First, because it will be very well worth the price of ad it mission; secondly, because the funds will go to a charity that should command the sympathy of all. Christmas is a time for peace on earth and good will towards women as well as men. o The flurry of snow yesterday was barely - sufficient to set weather prophets guessing - whether it will be a green or white Christ SImas. e It is learned with regret that Mr. A. J. - Fisk is suffering with an attack of the old r fashioned New England measles. There are good reasons for believing that in this ' instance the usual courseof this annoying ailment will be shortened. The aid axiom that nothing can keep a good man down ought to indicate a very brief period in the i case of Major "Jack" Fisk. t Christmas windows are daily surrounded C by groups of excited youngsters and scarcely less interested older ones. The Old Santa Claus exhibited by Gans & Klein seems to attract a large part of attention. The old gentleman is well "made up," to borrow a theatrical term, and yet he is not wholly beyond criticism. Yesterday after noon a wee bit of a girl wrapped in a great cloak and an opeia hat, pressed her face against the window to catch a glimpse of the patron saint. After a carfenl survey, she turned about: "Mamma, what makes his nose so red." she asked. "I don't know, dear, ask papa," replied mamma with a smile. Through carelessness the name of Colonel Haundley was omitted in the list of those old timers who cling to the comfortable folds of the old blue cloak. The negli gence was particularly unpardonable for the reason that no cane is more familiar or r more becoming than that worn by the col- ., onel. If a German helmet could be sub stituted for the soft felt which shadows the white mustache and goatee he would resemble Bismarek in the same striking de gree seen in Ed Zimmerman's statue of the third Napoleon. Montana with good reason boasts of an exceptional list of talented after-dinner ti speakers. Indeed, there are several orators of this class not unworthy of comparison t with Dr. Chauncey M. Denew, Hion. Joseph Choate and others of national reputation. The requirements necessary for successful b effort in this line are of peculiar order and rarely found. We believe that the best r after-dinner speaker in Montana is Ex United States Marshal George W. Irvin of si Butte. and for evidence we cite his speech n at the dinner given to the press of Mon tana by the Last Chance Press club of this city' It was a model of happy thoughts, told in an easy, modest style. The marshal has the largest resource of original and entertaining stories, some of which might be embarrassed by affidavits, but all of which are pointed. The cleverest and per haps the one nearer the truth is that relat ing the candidacy of George Henry Smith for coroner in the early days of Montana. This tale once appeared in these columns and was widely copied. Senator Paris Gibson approaches Mr. Irvine very closely. Major Maginnis, Col. Sanders, Gov. Toole, T Gen. Geo. O. Eaton and others are gifted F and eloquent orators though it sometimes happens that they do not strike the real After-dinner vein. f A review article on the present aspect of 1, western civilization from the pen of Three a Bears would doubtless afford entertaining j reading. That stalwart Cheyenne chief a was removed to the Deer Dodge peniten tiary yesterday, where he will remain three months. When he steals another pony, the animal will not come from the stables f of Loves-His-Knife. By the way, do you know that fenator William McThornton, of Anaconda, is the acting governor of Montana by virtue of his office of president pro-tern of the senate. Governor Tools and Lieutenant-Governor iRickalds are out of the state and Governor Thornton has full sway. Th'lle "Siberian Illooditonud " In view of the discussion regarding the Massachusetts law, it may be interesting to many to know the origin of the so-called "Siberian bloodhound." Some twenty years ago Mr. George E. Stevens first intro duced to the general public a number of great Danes, which he imported for use in an "rncle Tom's Cabin" company. He pictured them on the bills as great fero cious montters, with red mouths and blood dripping lips, in pursuit of Eliza Harris. To further thrill the public he called them "Siberian bloodhounds." The name origi nated in his own fertile bluin and was purely the inspiration of a theatrical man ager, who was seeking something sensa tional for advertiasing purposes. 'These an imals heavily chained and muzzied he pa raded up and down the streets in the differ ent cities he visited. Other enterprising managelrs soon followed his example, and within a few vears every place of any im liortauce had been introduced to the great "Siberian bloodhound." It is not to be wondered at that an ordinary legislature made the mistake of believing that these dogs lived on raw human leoshL. Mr. St,.vrins now lives at St, Joseph. Mich., and while he has discarded the "Si- I herian blooutuounds" and "U'tcle Tom's Cabin" he maintains a kennel of sporting does and manages a theatrical company of j a different kind.-F-orest and Stream.
