WKINLEY IX CLEVELAND. THE PRESIDENT-ELECT AND MRS. MKINLEY GUESTS OF MR. HANNA. AT WORK ON HIS INAlOl'It AI, ADDRESS* -SEN? ATOR WOLCOTT S MISSION TO EFROPE. |BT TEI.EartAI'H TO THE TMnrSE.] Cleveland. Jan. 'J. ?Major and Mrs. McKinley are jruosts of Mr. and Mis. M. A. Hanna. Tho President-elect and his wife arrived from Can? ton nt noon to-day and were driven at once to Mr. Hanna's home. There were some pleasant demonsiratlons of good-will on the part of crowds whioh had gaihered at Elations along the roulc of the Cleveland, Canton and South? ern Railroad bel ween Canton nnd Cleveland. .Major and Mrs. McKinlay are In excellent health. Tho visit to Cleveland will be a quiet ene. Major McKinley wanls an opportunity to work em his Inaugural addrosa nnd hopes lo have it finished before he r-turns to Cant,uv He will see few visitors and has no appoint? ments for Monday, savp willi fiemator Cullom. a ho will doubtless discuss boin ihe Cuban sltita llon and the p0lltle.1l conditions whhh exist lu Illinois. IL W. Pnlterson. of Chicago, dreive out to e all on Major McKinley this afternoon and had an Interview of some lerglh with him. Major McKinley ls holding absolutely aloof from the Senalorlal contest In Illinois, and has made no promises concerning palroingo In that Stale. A good many Inquiries have onie to Canton and Cleveland aboui the visit to Europe In the Interest of an International monotafv confer? ence which Senator Wolcott of Colorado |s about tn mnk". The fact ihat Senator Wolcott came te. Canton early this week and had an extended talk with the President-elect does not neces? sarily mean that Senator Wolcott ll undertaking a journey to Europe at his request, as many of the dispatcher) on tho subject seem to indi? cate. Major McKinley wants, of course, to carry out the promiser! and pledges of the Re? publican platform in respect to bimetallism, but lt ls obvious he is not in position to take active steps at this time and that whatever is don" In the mailor must lie the work of the Repub? lican Senators. Ii ls understood that tho senti? ment In Europe ls more favorabla lo nn inter? national monetary conference al proser* Ihan it has ever been, lt is probable ihat Senator Wolcott wishes to Rather Information to lay bo fore his colleagues and to consult prominent financiers nnd statesmen in Europe for tho pur? pose of ascertaining wheth-r there is a substan? tial and serious purpos" behind Iho talk in the European press about international bimetallism There is no desire to hold and no object In hold Inp another moneta!*) conference Unlttt the delegate; aro olothe'd with some other authority th,ui tiio nure risht io listen to debate and par? ticipate in ll. so wh'.'o Major McKinley may per? sonally bo deeply interested in the degree and character ot tho information Senator Wolcott gathers in Europe, ii is not likely that tho Sena? tor is charged by him with an> special mission or function.

Z?The year (luring which the Queen's unexampled reign will be commemo? rated has not been authoritatively named. Tht Hst of precious metals haa been exhausted on previous occasions and Ihe word "Jubilee" lt no longer available. "The Times" Invents "diamond jubilee," but that ls an awkward ceimblnatlon. I "Punch" makes a happier ruggestlon In herald* I lng MW as "(he Queen's year." That year opened i with genuine Queen's weather, yesterday being I as sunny, balmy and dry as Christmas day, with ] a relapse to-day Into the worst fog of the sea I son. The first fruits of the loyalty and good feel? ing with which thc gracious sovereign's sixtieth year on the throne will bs celebrated are the tributes of the Kngllsh press to her abilities and vlrlues as the> most womanly Queen of modern history. Conspicuous among these tributes ls the gen? eral recognition of ihe fa?t that the Queen haa personally Interested herself during the last year In the restoration of good feeling between Eng? land and America, and that nothing will give her keener satisfaction during the new festal year than the establishment of an International arbi? tration court. Among the last subjects on which the Prince Consort gave the Queen the benefit of lils advice was the American Civil War, and it was wise counsel In the Interest of the Union. The Queen's friendship for America hat been evinced with equal plainness during the last year, and her Interest In the success of the arbitra? tion experiment cannot be doubted. Parliament will soon be In session, but no ?legislative measures of real Importance are promised. The Education bill will be modified and simplified and introiluced mainly as a relief measure for voluntary schoolt. A Joblot of small I measures dealing arith labor conflicts, wor*kmen't i accidents and private lilli legislation will also be | provided. The time ls not favorable for the pro i ductlon of great creative policies, and the pres? ent Ministers are hardly I apable of devising and ordering thorn. The session will be occupied with small bills which do not involve conten? tions over principles, the Unionist theory being that the country needs nothing so much as com? plete rest after the long period of Gladstonlan agitation and excitement. Certainly there are no signs that any ambitious leader is thinking deep? ly on any subject or that the constituencies de? sire anything except such amusement as raajr properly be had at political sideshows. There is e'onsiderable comic byplay already in Ireland, where John Daly has appeared on a landlord platform and affectionately exchanged compliments with Lord Castletown and Lord Dunraven, and where Mr. Healy and Colonel Saunderson have discovered strawberry marks eui each other's shoulders. The preirlamatlon of Lord Castletown as an Irish Washlngnn waa a drollery worthy of Gilbert and Sullivan. The seri? ous argument for the revision of Irish taxation on the strength of the whiskey returns has been weighed and feiund wanting In Scotland. Hard headexl mathematicians have been patiently ciphering and neve ascertained that the tax per hoad In Scotland for spirits is seven shillings more than in Ireland. The relief of Ireland from any share of taxation contributed to the Saxon treasury ls as unlikely as lightening the bur? dens of the general taxpayer. In conserjuenct of a large increase of receipts over the estimates another surplus will be available this year, but the expenses of the Dongola expedition must he met and new schemes of naval and military de? fence provided for. An English surplus avella little. Not a single penny is knocked off the In? come tax, even when the revenues are swollen and the surplus exceeds ihe wildest hopes of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Nobody ventures to suggest a large decrease in taxation as a practi? cal metheid of celebrating th'* Queen's year. Mr. Cecil RhodtsfS triumphal progress from Cape Town is ridiculed bv his enemies as a blt of political melodrama designed tu affect the public | Judgment In England on the eve of his arrival I there to submit to cross-examination respecting his responsibility for Jameson's raid. This it hardly Just. Mr. Rhodes's enemies e-reate sym? pathy for him by the virulence of their assaults. The demonstrations In Cape Colony have been spontaneous and sltu-ere, and there ls no reason to believe that thea" have been artificially pre? pared In order to influence Kngllsh opinion. Mr. Hhodes ls recognized In South Africa as a great cotontal leader who has enlarged the Empire and ls capable of carrying Into execution compre? hensive policies. Colonial admiration fe>r the man ls genuine and not twpprsessd'ta consequence of ihe failure of Jameson's movement. Mr. Rhodes may succeed when he arrives in lyndon in convincing the Parliamentary Commission that he tried to stop Jameson's column at the last moment, but he can hardly hope to explain away his knowledge of the conspiracy in Ita earlier phases nor his responsibility for lt. Mr. Rhodes, being a man of genuine force of char act",-, may regain his prestige in South Africa, rut the day of the millionaire revolutionist hag passed. The Prussian Government his brought on a curious commercial conflict by the enfeircement e.f a law enacted In response te> clamors of tha Agricultural party for the prohibition of deal? ings In futures In grain and other produce. The new regulations wer* ga/.etteel only twenty-ftsjj hours before the act e-ame into force, but Um Interval was long ettOUgh to enable the Cora Exchange and other commercial bodies to take [ j organized action in self-defence. The exchanges wore dosed on the ground that the new rules ? affected the personal honor of every member. _% new bill has been dictated by the Agrarian | j party who, after suffering from low prices, bara fancied that they would be better off if broktra were prohibited from dealing In futures, si ice Imports would be diminished tnd the valut of some products enhanced. Members of the ax e ranges were the-reby subjected to a Draconian) r-> stein eif rules for .-.inducting their business under the supervision of the Agrarian party atti ! s,-Hiing and advertising prices The exchanges , j lave suspended business and demanded the re? peal e.f the law. While the elculre e.f the farm* t .is for a rise in prices is natural, it ia cl.-arly ' j Impructle-ahle to prohibit dealings In futures. J : Germany haa a great grain trade with Russia ? i und America, which is entirely dependent upon ' | future deliveries. Thia immense business will I lie suspended If the (ollecttvlst device of tba ; Agrarian party be rigorously enforced. 1 J The Ce.nclllatlon set passed at the last session j I of Parliament has broken down In the dispute t I between Lord Penrhyn and the men employt4 j In his slate quarries. The Hoard of Trade hatft offered Its good af?.Ote In settling the eiuarrel but this Intervention has been resented. Lord Pen rhyn has lr. el BJ U his .-tarries and virtually de^ the trades-unit***.
