ITLEIN ON NOVEMBER 15rTH, 1777, the "Articles of Confederation" were adopted by the Continental Congress. This was the form of the government for the American colonies which preceded and was supplanted by the more t perfect union under the Con stitution of the United States. The articles had been debated for more than a year by Con gress which, by common con sent, was exercising the func tions of government.

'TI Though He Had $100,000,000 in be Cash When Cleveland Re tired From Office. ti Appropriations Committee to Assemble e Ilefore the Meeting of Congress tI to Study the Problem. pI WASmiNOTON, Nov. 14.-A call will be issued soon for a meeting of thehouse com- e mittee on appropriations Monday, Nov. 8. b This is to give the committee about a week's time in which to prepare some regular an nual appropriation bills for the action of congress when it meets for the second see- a: sion. It is the purpose to push rapidly all tl these measures for the maintenance of the fi government next year. Exceedingly heavy A payments by the treasury during the first n quarter of the present fiscal year caused ti some dismay among members of the appro. priations committee. For the first four months of the year these paymentexceeded n by $111,000,000 the expenditures for the cor- i responding period of the preceding fiscal P year, which means a total increase for the n year of $48,000,000 while the appropriations tl for the year are only $12.000,000 greater h than the appropriations for last year. That means, if the estimates of the committee hold good, a deficiency on account of pen sions of $36,000,000 which will have to be o met by congress at the next session, in ad- C dition to appropriations for pensions for the a next fiscal year of certainly not less than s $150,000,000, so the total appropriation * that congress must make for pensions next session will aggregate not less than $181,- t 000,000. With this added to the other.a- t propriations necessary to carly on' the gov- t ernment and decreased importations, and consequently reduced receipts, it will be seen that the appropriations committee had good reason to feel dismayed at the out look and doubt its ability to prevent a de ficiency in national accounts. Indian Commissioner Morgan, speaking to-day of reports of apprehended trouble with the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians a in Oklahoma, because of the reduction of t food sqpply furnished by the government, I spoke at length or what had been done for these tribes in the past. In 1890 they t agreed to surrender a large part of their t reservation, $500,000 being paid in cash and i $1,000,000 placed in the treasury to their credit, with interest at five percent. Allot ments were then made to each man, woman and child of the tribe of 100 acres of the choicest land. "It can hardly be expected," said the commissioner, "that the govern moet vill continue to sustain out of the public treasury Indians who have had their land allotted and who are re.eiving large cash payments. They not only have no I ground for complaint, but white people t who s.ttled among them are complainieng that the government treats the Indians with more liberality than the whites. This unrest ramorng the Indians," says the com misbiorer, "is undoubtedly created by thoser who hoped to be benefited in some way. During the last campaign iome un ri inciplod men stirred up these indians for political purposes, and if trouble occurs they will be largely responsible." IBOILE L I',LEW LP.

LonDoN, Nov. 14.-The second week of th.great cotton lookout opens with in-S creased prospects of the trouble being long continued. There are 6,000,000 spindles working full time, three quarters of a mll I'on on half time, and 12,000,000 stopped. The Masters' federation have asked the owners of spindles working fill time to begin to shorten time Thursday. All have } assented except the masters at Bolton, who spin Egytian cotton mostly. They plead thnt their hands are full of orders, and their mills must work fall time to fill them. The Financial News thinks the long expected boom of American railway shares ee may come atany timle. American specula tors, it declaires, have not yet grasped the potential sources of traffic expansion that will be afforded by the Columbian exposi tion. .There is nothing extravagant in the estimate that $250,000,000 foreign money will be left in America as the harvest of tile exposition.

PLUNGED ON THE RESULT Some of the Men Who Put Up 0 Big Money on the Elec- of tion. Is fa fir Mike Dwyer Heade the List, His hi Winnings Being More Than $80,000. Billy Ed wards Held Stakes Aggregating ri $140,000-Rtepublleas lBet to a ltaudstllil-Winners, Losers. *t -1 Nrw Yonx, Nov. 14.-Just how much money chadged hands on the election will f< pro.bably never be known, as some of the big bets were made recently, but it is cer- P tam that in this city alone the amount f wagered exceeded $500,000. Blly Edwards held between $140,0u0 and $150,000. The al amount wageled in Wall street, either on iI the exchanges or in brokers' offices, was ai very nearly $200,000, and there were many t bets in other hotels than the Hoffman house and also in the business districts. o There were so many big bettors that it would be difficult to any who staked the most, but the persistent plunging of Mike . Dwyer makes it possible that he put out the v largest amount of any individual. Mr. Dwyer made some bets personally, but the ° most of the money he staked was placed for him by two representa- I Lives. One hunted up the repultlicans h in the down-town finanoial center v and Joe Vendig haunted the Hoffman house. Both men had big rolls of thous- f and-dollar bills, and as soon as a Harrison e man squeaked he was beset. The down j town man bet mainly on the state at the 1 prevailing odds, while Vendig bet every thing. The variety of bets made by this man would have confused a less self-pos sessed man. Vendig is a small, modest young man, whom one would never suspect of great nerve. It required a cool head to keep calm in the jostling mob that filled the Hoffman house during the betting nights. Vendig kept his wad in his inside waistcoat pocket and never ploduced it until the stakeholder was on hand and the preliminaries had all been arranged. Of course, nobody knows just how much Dwyer won, but conservative estimates place the figures at $80,000. He is reported to have won every bet he made. Jim and John Mahoney were also big and persist ent bettors and were always on deck when Harrison money appeared at the Hoffman. Their united winnings should reach at least $80,000. Many of the bookmakers bet on both sides, maintaining such odds that they were sure to come out ahead, no matter bow the election went, but the big men had the courage to back the announcement of the democratic managers that the election was sure for Cleveland. and these betters made the big money. Some of these man agers had sufficient confidence in their own assertions to back them heavily, and thus they, too, have captured large amounts of the enemy's money. Edward Murphy, Jr., of the state committee, is reported to have won $50,000, most of it on Lets on the state. John Carroll, the 'lamnmany man, is said to be at least $20,0100 riche', and Joseph J. O'Douohue is $3000(0 ahead. 'T here was a good deal of talk about desm ocratic bluff before the election,. but the result shows that those who pinned their faith to Messrs. Croker and Sheehan were amply repaid for their confidence. In the light of this, the circular issued by Boss Carter, of the republican national cam paigt committee on the eve of election, do claring the betting inspired by the demo cratic lenders to be mere bluff, looks extremely amusing. The list of winners is extremely long, and the fact that the losing list must be fully its big makes it apparent that i good nimany citizens have other reasons than partisan predilections for mourning the result. Among the winners are the following: Jouli Fox. $10,000); Ed. Kearney, the car rliag builder, $35,000; Daniel E. Tuttle, 1,.(!(K); Joh,n Gilroy, $2.00);: W.

IDEMOCIA'I'S TURN LOOSE. They Hold a Big Irtfllleatlon Meeting at Br,aoeattnron, Ill., Nov. 14,--'ie pent up enthusiasm of the local democrats turned loose to-night in ratification of the election of Cleveland and Stevanson, especially the latter as he is a resident of this city. Night fall was the signal for the lighting of bon fires in different parts of the city, and the firing of cannons and anvils. Democrats began tooting horlns and thousandis of peo-. B ple congregated about the business portion of the city. Abut seven o'clock they formed in line and with bands marcohed to the real dance of Stevenson. Gen. Stevenson, Ilon. lJames McKenzie, of Kankkkei; lion. Jutames Ewing and lion. Owen Scott entered a car rltae and joined the line. 91r After marching about Franklin park the line headed for Iarley theater, which was soon filled to its utmost capacity. (Gen. Stevenson was introduced, and made a speech of considerable length, principally of a felicitous nature, thanking the assean blage for the reception and his countrymen for the honor bestowed upon ilim. cit After commending the ability and high da per ,nial character of the gentlemen on tile opposing ticket, he referred to the good p feeling during the campaign, and said: IF" "May we not lihope that the great political de struggle of 11(2 will inaugurate a new era to in Aime ican politice, and that calmi discus- M sion and respectful consideration for the opinions of our opponent will cheracterize the presidential contests of the future." at Hie then reviewed the tenets of the demo- fil oratic faith and paid a high compliment to or (mover Clevelanld. closinga with an expres- bh sion of his earnest endenvur to discharge the duties of the high ofhice to which he ci was called. Several other speakers followed Cl with short talks. le Among the stacks of letters which have accumulated for Stevenson since election day, he to-day found one from President- g' elect Cleveland, mailed several days ego. TI It wasee mainly of a private nature, and Mr. gi Stevenson declined to make it public. Ste- oi venson said to-night to an Associated press H representative that he had not given out for publication any interview regardingl a s special session of congress: that he repeat- fe edly declined to be interviewed on the sub- ti ject, for the reason that Cleveland, as at president-elect, was the proper person to ft speak upon this matter. WHITNEY FOR PREMIER. The New Torker Stated for the State De- N parlment. CtircAco, Nov. 14.-William C. Whitney, of New York, will be premier of President sa Cleveland's second administration. Benja- ji min T. Cable, of Illinois, sill be tendered ac the navy portfolio. In case he does not 1I care to assume the responsibilities of the 1! secretaryship, he will dictate the appoint- 31 ment. but there is little doubt that the dis- 3 tinguished Illinoisan will take a place in 1 the president's oflicial family. The fore going statements are made on the highest authority. and come direct from the preli- 0 dent-elect to a gentleman now in Chirago o anti high in the party's councils. 41 Mr. Cleveland's prompt decision to rec- y ornize the claimsof Illinois and Mr. Cable's effective work during the campaign was a received with unbounded satisfaction by d r the few party leaders who were to-night a made aware of it. No less praise was given c fo: the selection of Mr. Whitney for secre tary of state. Mr. Cable's aid in the democratic cause in Illinois arid the northwest was not con- 1 fited to the direction of the branch coma- t. rnittee's work. The money was needed, S end Mr. Cable's I ersonal contribution to d the $100,000 fund vromnised in this state in the event of Adlai E. Stevenson's nomina- P tion was exactlyv $60,000. But $1.000 of the p remainder promised $100,000 was paid over r to the committee. 'I lroneghout the entire camraign Mr. ('able was embarrassed by the need of funds. lle was forced to draw continually on his own prsonarl account. c ' This he did uncomplainitclv. His disn- r terestedness and loyalty to his party deeply s moved Mr. Cleveland and he hastened to make known his determination to suitably express his appreciation. In a commnunica tion received in this city to-night Mr. Cleveland indicates his wishes in terms that cannot be mistaken. alake Yoar Choice. Stoux Fusr.s, N. D., Nov. 14.-Returns from thirty-nine counties give Harrison a plurality of about 8,200 and it.is not thought the remuaiining coiunties will make 1 any material change. The republican state ticket has a uitolewhlit laiger pluralatv and the legislature, front present indications, will be strongly repul,hican. It is believed it will be fiavorable to the submission of a inohibition amendment. A dispatch fronm Bismarck, however, says: "From reports now ill, and a careful estimate upon others, it is evident the republican ticket is snowed d under with the exception of congresstana and secretary oi.etate." t Must 1Prove Ills Faith.
