<IRGAN*I7-*TION ' ¥ NEXT HOUSE.— Members
nd offlr Ul« ct the Hou»a now in Washington say
,r, organization of the next House will differ In no
Jlnortant respect from that of the last. Since
c^e-ker Henderson's re-election Is assured without
ormcltion ln " 1 » party, ft is not doubted that all
the other elective officers of the House will be
' ilarly ; lonor ed. This means that Clerk Me-
Dnwf'l SrTceaTit-at-Arms Doorkeeper Glenn
n d PWOat«teJr McElroy will retain their places in
t v ie LVIIth Congress, and that, of course, no
changes of public interest will be made m their
t'affe Because of this rather unusual condition of
f "Mre left] interest is manifested in Washington, as
irellas Sn other parts of the country, in the ap
proaching f.-:.r than Beaeraßj precedes the
jneetir.6 cf a new Congress. When there is to be a
chtrt _. !n the <ership or political control of the
Ho , r.aiurally there is a preat deal of log rolling
hefort the lawmakers assemble in Washington.
Aralirants for places under the '.:• •» officers to be
'e'ted by the party in control flock to Washington
rr the «core week? in advance of the meeting of
Congress to wort; in their own interest for the elec
ttoi of those candidates who promise them places.
In xiw of the fact that there is none of this rich
T)iekl"E in prospect Bt present, it Is remarked by
o'a Was!iir.st<T.;a:'.s that seldom have- they seen so
few ne«" politicians of the mit, or class in the na-
i iona i capital at this time of the year. In view of
the fun • f- icl t{lat the hundreds of employes of
the left House are sure to retain thoir places for
tiro years more, nearly a.!l of them have been
awar from \A'nsh:npton two or three months, and
,ji2l not return until iust before Consrcsa meets.
Of course, they draw ihelr salaries regularly, hut
ttli money is spent in the country. Consequently
VuMngto"n feels their absence In more ways than
mx a popular demand or other reason for a rad
ial revision of the committees ln the next House.
It if not likely that many i Inline at importance
would be made, in view of the clrcun. stance that
£pf«ker Henderson was well pleased with the
work of the cosuaitteet, a« he organised them at
the bepir.nir.g of the last Congress. In point of
fact, there la talk only of adding to the Republi
can strength of every inipcrt^r.: House committee
and subtracting from the Democratic strength
without disturbing the relative rank or position of
sr.y BepuMlcan who ie satisfied wjth his place.
Precedent for the proposed increase of the Republi
can membership on the committees was estab
lished by the Democrat?, when they were last in
control of the House. At thai time Speaker Crisp
considerably Increased the number of Democrats
and correspondingly decree sed the number of Re
publicans on the Waye and Means Committee. The
purpose, of course, was to give the party la power
such a preponderance of strength on the most Im
portant House committee that there could be no
miscarriage of party policies. A situation some
what analogous to the one that confronted Speaker
Crisp will cor.front Speaker Henderson In De
cember. Two of the majority members of the
Ways and Means Committee are suspected of a
feeling of lukewarmneise to tiie genuine article of
the ancient Republican doctrine of protection They
are Mr. Babcock. of Wisconsin, and Mr McCall
of Massachusetts. Mr. Baboook at the last session
of Congress introduced a bill to put the products
v tJie ,,»- nlled S^tes Steel Corporation on the free
list. He did this without consulting any of his
a??oclates on the Ways and Means Committee or
any other party leaders, and has .since lone much
ULklng of what he intends to do with tble bill at
the next session. As the committee i-> at present
constituted-ten Republican to seven Democrats-

Washington. Aug. 31.— The shipments of
money from the Treasury to the South and
West for the movement of crops have been
much heavier this season than ever before.
Treasurer Roberts said to-day that at the close
of August. 18W, $2,118,500 had been transferred
to the sub-treasuries at Chicago, New-Orleanu
and St. Louis. At the close of the same month
In 1000 the total was $3,400,000, and at the
close of busint-ss at the Treasury to-day the
total was $7,950,000, of which New-Orleans has
received $2,525,000. The currency as a rule
is shipped one-fourth in silver certificates up
to $5, one-fourth in United States notes of the
denomination of $10, and the remainder in gold
certiticaies. Gold coin is not in demand for
crop moving purposes.
Albany. Auk:. 51 (Special). — Controller Knight re
ceived to-day nearly $.rOQ,OOO. r OQ,OOO in State taxes from
trust companies, savings banks and similar cor
porations. This is an unusually large turn.

ported on the canals this year with last year for
a similar period the record is as follows: isoo,
1.*7..£. : tons: 1901, 1, 710,727 tons. There has thus
been an increase Of 19.219 tons. This increase Is.
however, not absolute, since the canal opened
two weeks earlier than last year. If the figures
of those, wet It* be Included, the actual gain this
year is only 5.4.52 tons.

Colon. Aug. 31.— Quiet prevails on the Isthmus.
The recent Liberal concentration in this vicinity
seems to have disappeared. While yet more or
less numerous, the Liberals are poorly armed
and without leaders. They lack organization
for concerted action, and hence are missing op
portunities to injure the government.
Endless rumors are afloat, but the consensus
of the best Informed, conservative opinion dis
credits serious hostilities or anything more than
a continuation of the Liberals' guerilla system
of engagements with the government force?. The
Liberals are anxious to get a seaport. Hence
their recent approach to Bocas del Toro, west
of here. The government is not bringing rein
forcements to the isthmus. There are about
four hundred men at Colon, and at Panama one
thousand men are available, if needed.
The general situation in Colombia is divisible
under three heads— the isthmus revolutions, the
progress made through the rest of the country,
and the situation on the Venezuela and Ecuador
frontiers. The revolution is going on in the rest
of the country with varying success. The Lib
erals hold various towns and districts, and de
cline to meet the punitive government expedi
tions, withdrawing upon their approach and re
turning after their departure to engage in other
and similar tactics, with occasional small en

news of the coast frontier happenings. Colom
bia doubtless has troops on the Venezuela and
Ecuador frontiers, although the numbers re
ported are vastly exaggerated, and Venezuela
has no troops on the Colombian frontier. It Is
difficult to draw a line of distinction between
the troops of one country and the revolutionists
of the other.
Various indications ad to the belief that there
will be no actual warfare between Colombia and
Venezuela. The political revolutionists of both
countries In past years have time and time again
jumped across the frontier when pressed from
or» side or the other, and have continually used,
a.* the necessity arose, one or the other coun
try as a place of refuge in preparing expeditions
against the established authority of the other
country. The Venezuelan Liberals sympathize
with the Colombian Liberals, and tbe Conserva
tives of both countries hold views which are
similcr. The Venezuelan Liberals have fought
against the conservative government of Colom
bia. The Venezuelans assert that the Colom
bian Conservatives have done the same against
the Liberal government of Venezuela.
It should be borne in mind that the "rentier
offers Indefinite protection to Colombians and
Venezuelans of both political parties. It has
been the- favorite field of operations for the revo
lutionists of both countries, and these condi
tions have existed whenever either Colombia or
Venezuela has ha.i a revolution on hand.
It is said here that Colombia has ten thousand
men on the Ecuador border.

Buffalo. Aug. 81.— There was a material decrease
to-day In the attendance at the exposition, wholly
on account of the weather. A steady downpour
early In the morning kept persons from near by
Buffalo at home. and, as the bulk of Saturday's at
tendance consists of people who come to the fair
over Sunday, the effect Is apparent as the weather
changes. However, everything was lively, made 80
by the thousands of Masons who are here on
account of Shrlners 1 Day. There was a big parade
In the morning. The remainder of the day and
until early In the evening, when It began to pour
again, -was spent in celebrating.
There are many Masons to-night, therefore, who
are willing to testify by the beard of the Prophet
that the Oasis of Buffalo is more wearisome,
though Infinitely more delightful, than the hot
sands of the desert, while, of course, the water
supply is abundant.
It is estimated the total number of Shriners In
Buffalo to-day was more than ten thousand. There
were two hundred and fifty from Rochester, five
hundred from Binghamton, one hundred from
Cleveland, and proportionate numbers from nearby
towns and villages, while every city within a day's
Journey had an excellent representation.
The lull In attendance, however, la only the quiet
ness that prevails before the storm, for President
McKinley. the members of his Cabinet, diplomats
and justices of the Supreme Court of the United
States are expected here next Wednesday, and from
the minute of the President's arrival until his de
parture, there will bo something doing all the time.
Committees are hard at work now arranging details,
so everything may so off as planned without a
single hitch.
The President is expected to arrive at 6 o'clock
on "Wednesday morning, but a committee is to be
appointed to meet him at Dunkirk and escort him
to Buffalo. As soon as he steps from the train
here the President will be taken direct to the home
of John O. Mllburn. president of the exposition
company. He will be escorted to that place by a
platoon of mounted police. Ills arrival is to be
signalled by a salute of twenty-one guns, to be
fired on the terrace by United States soldiers, and
every factory whistle in Buffalo will join in the
hullabaloo for the man who brought prosperity to
the country.
Thursday Is President.* Day. and the programme
is an extensive one. All the schools in the city have
b.-en kept closed a week longer than usual so the
thousands of school children and their parents may
participate in the celebration. Many of the business
botuea win be closed tor the occasion.
In anticipation of President's Day and the un
usual crowd that is expected, it Is said the "crooks"
nr» preparing to make flying trips to Buffalo. Al
ready a number of detectives from other cities are
here, •• •! is fast nn they discover a suspicious
charncter. or one likely, to do mischief, he Is placed
under arrest and either is warned to get out of
Buffalo or Is mb! to the penitentiary for a few
days' rest.
There has been some discussion among close ob
servers of the attendance regarding the numbers
of Germans here. Casual inquiries show the mi
jority are business men in Germany, and in most
Instances men Who are interested In South Ameri
can trade. It Is said they are here to study pos
sible influence.* the Pan-American may have on
stii-h trade, and to prepare for the United States
competition they think hi threatened.
Nicaragua, Central America, has derived Incal
culable benefit from the. Pan-American, hut the fact
ha« become known locally only, since the country's
Kohl exhibit has bfen Installed in the Agricultural
Building. This exhibit has attracted considerable
attention, and m arranged by Dr. D. David J.
Guzman, who travelled all over Nicaragua to
gather the gold specimens and who had many
agents working under hl« direction. When Dr.
Ouaman undertook his task he went mainly after
gold, and he had prospected only a short time
hen he, discovered numerous new gold fields In the
country which have- never been worked. In ad
dition, he also found many valuable stones the
existence of which had not even been suspected
by Nlcaraguans.
As soon as poeslble Dr. Guzman notlried the home
government, and now Nicaragua Intends to bring
the attention of the world to these discoveries, and
In doing so to some extent by her display at the
exposition. The gold contains some beautiful
vpeciraena, among which the so-called "thread
gold" attracts most attention. This gold is found
In Hmall globules, with small threads of gold ap
pended. The specimens aro odd In appearance,
but are of excellent quality. Commissioner Brr
m !<!••*. who is at the head of Nicaragua's comm
ission to the Pan-American, thinks there are al
most limitless possibilities for capitalists to Invest
In gold -.nines In his country, with excellent pros
pect of big return*. In view of the fact that
Dr. Guzman's discoveries are so recent, j"talled
statiatlcs cannot he furnished, but th. government
Intends to malt.- further explorations, when more
information will to obtainable.
Among the precious stones found were opals,
Jasper, alabaster agate, cornelian, amethysts.
rmeraMs and rubles. The- existence of pome of
thes»\ of course, was known, bit new fiei!.^ were
discovered where these stones were found In gen
erous quantities, and here also it Is thought there
are unknown possibilities of reward for fortune
seekers and miners
Mercury also was discovered near the roM sands
along th.' banks of creeks, .mil antimony, plumbago.
alum and calcedony were found in other places.
But it discovery which will appeal at once to the
commercial world was that of a quarry of litho
graph stone. SaM to be of excellent quality, but
not tested sufficiently to compare critically, thus
far, with the. ItthograDh stones Imported from
Germany, which are paid to be superior to all
Another discovery made by Dr. Guzman, and
which may prove to be of Immense commercial
value some clay, was vast quantities) of vegetable
silk. Specimens are shown, an.! at first glance
might be mistaken for peculiar hornet's nests or
the homes of tropical birds. In I*B2 Dr. Guzman dis
covered similar silk In the forests of Salvador, and
It has been used since In th« manufacture of Imi
tation silk. Owing, however, to the need of a better
Invention for weaving the natural web. it has not
come to "be known as generally as the genuine silk.
The forests of Nicaragua, it Is said, contain vast
quantities of the stuff, which is the product of a
worm not unlike the silk worm. It Is all mixed with
forest leaven and bits of wood that lodge In the
web when blown about by the wind, but all of
•which can he removed easily, because the silk Is
•pun In sheets and as fast as it is unwound the
leaves and wood drop out.
Whiskey rum red rum and alcohol are products
that are made In Nicaragua, all of them from
sugar cane or fruits. The manufactures are
quite extensive, but the liquor is used almost ex
cluslvelv for home consumption. Some, however,
is exported to ne'ghborlng countries, but none
leaves South America. The methods of making It
are primitive, an.l If done on a larger scale with
modern machinery there would be opportunities for
money making, owing to the demand for the Nica
ragua product.
Coffee and rubber raising are the two great agri
cultural pursuits of the country, but the latter in
dustry Is said to be still In its infancy. The gov
ernment offers a bonus of 10 cents for every tree
planted when the number does not fall below 250
and the trees are planted by a single person and
in squares 10 feet apart. The country In the vicin
ity of the Caribbean Sea Is particularly suitable
for rubber culture. Many of the farmers plant
rubber trees, and then support themselves with
other crops while the tree:., which require from six
to seven years to mature, are Browing. :
Cotton, too offers a good field for speculation
in the country. it is perennial there, not annual.
as In the United States. The cotton grows much
larger and yields double the quantity It does here.
Its raising "has been handicapped thus far by the
lack of capital, abundant labor and modern ma
chinery. , . .'.
The coffee plantations are extensive and the
product is excellent. The Germans, however, are
In almost exclusive control. All kinds of coffee i
can be raised, and the prices paid for it range
from five to ten cents a pound. ...
"Savilla" is the name given to a curious looking .
tuber that It Is claimed has the property of pre- j
venting injuries from snake bite* The natives
scrape portions of th« tuber into glasses and pour
whiskey upon it. and drink the compound before ]
going Into the forebt. They claim when this Is
done snake» will-not go near them, that It Imparts j
an odor which is obnoxious to all kinds of snakes.
It Is claimed for this vegetable that when it Is ;
taken In this way after a bite from a poisonous 1
