Mer riam Speaks of Work on the Census. From The Journal Bureau, Room 45, Post Build ing, Washington. Washington, Dec. 18.Representative Joel P. Heatwole, since his return i\^ Washington, has been trying to determine how nfany suits of clothes he has coming to him, and how many he owes to other people, as the result of quiet little bets made last summer, before the adjourn ment of the last session. At that lime Mr. Heatwole was saying what a good many of his friends had heard him say before, namely, that he would not again, be a candidate for congress, and they were disposed to receive his statement lightly. In fact, Representative Eddy felt so con fident that he made a bet of $100 that* Heatwole would be a candidate again. Tim Byrnes, who was here at the time, bet Heatwole a suit of clothes that the third district would nominate him again, that he would accept and be elected. The last named part of the proposition in volved a second suit of clothes. Heatwole bet Byrnes that Van Sant would not re ceive more than 10,000 majority at the polls. So far as Byrnes is concerned, therefore, Heatwole has made a net win ning of one suit of clothes, and he also won th eEddy bet of SI 00. Tt seems, how ever, that Heatwole did not take the Eddy proposition seriously, knowing that he would not again be a candidate. Upon returning to Washington, Mr. Heatwole absolutely declined to make any statements, for publication or otherwise, regarding state politios, contenting him self with saying that there was nothing in the situation that was not thoroughly understood at home, and that anything he might say here would be neither inform ing nor important. From other sources, however, it is pretty well understood that Mr. Heatwole feels that he has not had a 'fair deal" at the hands of *the friends of the state administration, whom he ac cuses of misrepresenting him and exag gerating the significance of his support of Dr. Babcock for speaker of the Minnesota, house. Mr. Heatwole'e friends here say, for instance, that he has not seen J J. Hill for more than a year, is not represent ing him in any manner, directly or indi rectly, nor trying to use the speakership as a means to an end. Said one of these friends "The speakership cannot possibly have any bearing on the future of state poli tics. Those who say that a speaker can. be of service to a man who wants to be governor or senator, either have forgot ten the history of state politics, or are wilfully misrepresenting the facts. No speaker in a generation has been of any service to a gubernatorial or other can didate, and this ought to be well known." Mr. Heatwole's friends deny that he is to be a candidate for governor. Regard ing the senatorship. they pretend to have no information, which is probably the truth, for it is believed here that if Heatwole is to be a candidate to succeed Senator Clapp. that candidacy will be determined by future events. Major Hancock Is Better. Major Hancock, Mrs. W. R. Merriam's father, is getting on very well, and the chancea are thought to be more than even that he will recover. For several days the physicians were unable to agree concern ing his malady, which resembled apoplexy or paralysis but they finally have agreed that there is a small clot of blood on the brain. This clot may be dissipated, or it may develop and eventually bring about paralysis and death. There are prospoots of dissipation in the meanwhile, the pa tient Is resting comfortably, and the fears that were caused by the sudden illness have been partially removed. Major Han cock is a brother of Major General Win field Scott Hancock. Another brother, Hilary Hancock, lives in Minneapolis, and lias been expected in Washington for a visit, but has not come yet. He is over 75 years old and quite feeble. President Hill of the Great Northern was to fur nish him a special car for the trip. The Merriams will not return to Minne sota for the holiday recess. "I am about as busy a man as there Is in Washington at present," said Governor Merriam, "and purpose to spend the recess shaping up several matters for presentation to con gress." Ii is not a fact that a bill is pending in the house providing for a general census of American cities every two years. A newspaper notice to that effect, published recently in the twin cities, is erroneous. A bill is pending, however, providing for a social census ot American cities every two years^ which is an entirely different tiling. Social statistics relating to American cit ies are gathered, under law, by Colonel Carroll D. Wright, commissioner of labor. every two -years:, and published in a bulletin of the bureau of labor. These statistics are necessarily incomplete and at times inaccurate, and It is Colonel Wright's opinion, in which he is joined by the secretary of the interior and by others who are qualified to speak, that the census bureau, now that it has been made permanent, should take charge of this work. Governor Merriam is perfectly willing, and so Mr. Hopkins of Illinois, chairman of the house committee on cen sus, has introduced a bill. This social census will not be a count of the inhabitants. It will embrace figures as to wages, employment, cost of living, and general municipal improvements, such as water and gas mains, sewers, paving, taxes, building, etc. The work will be done by employes of the census bureau," in each city, and will be accurate and of considerable importance to the entire country. No such compilation is now made, except the unsatisfactory one by Colonel Wright just alluded to. The un satisfactory feature of Colonel Wright's work is that he must rely upon volun teers for his data. Sometimes it is not furnished at all. at other times it is frag mentary and therefore valueless for pur poses of comparison, and at still other times, it contains glaring errors. So far as a count of the inhabitants is concerned. Governor - Merriam believes that once in ten years is often enough, and apparently everybody in authority agrees with him. GUATEMALA'S TROUBLE The "Volcanic Upheaval Has Caused Widespread Suffering. Correspondence of the Associated Press. Gautemala City, Gautemala. Dec. 1. It is probably due to some government in structions that the papers here have not said anything with reference to the erup tion of the Santa Maria volcano, which can be considered a national calamity. The losses suffered by German capital only are not less than $6,250,000, consist ing of houses, machinery destroyed, and the destruction of the present coffee crop. If the total destruction of many other properties belonging to other foreigners as well as natives is added to this amount, the actual losses reach a large sum. Owing to the unusually high rate of exchange business is entirely paralyzed, for all imported articles .have reached such prices that very few persons can afford to buy them, and most of the mer chants sell just enough to cover their expenses. The worst is that no one knows just when 6r "how it will change and it is almost unendurable just now. Articles of first necessity have reached inaccessible prices and the poor class of people Is suffering. W. W. Jermane.

By training, disposition, and experi ence Mr, Bowen seems to be the man to handle a serious and alarming situation with the proper combination of prudence and. firmness. . In persoral apeparance Mr. Bowen is impressive. He stands just a trifle over six feet in height, carries himself with soldierly erectness, and wears a heavy, grayish mustache. He is a poet and a fighter born of old American stock, he is a trained linguist, speaking German, French, Italian, andmost important of allSpanish, besides his native English. Born in New York he was educated in Germany, Italy, and France before enter ing Yale college and the law school of Columbia university. He has -written a text Vook on internat ional law which is standard, and he has spent the test twelve years in putting into practice In the diplomatic service the principles which he theoretically expound ed in his book. Mr.- Bowen is best remembered by thethe public for the part he played white serv ing as United States consul general to Barcelona. Spain, just before the Span ish-American war broke out. Time after UNITED STATES MINISTER HER- BERT W. BOWEN. time large mobs of enraged Spaniards gathered in the square before the Amer ican consulate and made violent demon strations, but each time they were cowed and held at bay by the personal bravery of Mr. Bowen. The most threatening demonstration was participated in by nearly 10,000 angry men. At the time they gathered about the building Mr. Bowen was in a hotel across the square eating his luncheon. As soon as he noticed the excitement he forced his way through ,the mob and stood with his back to the door of the consular office, ready to protect it at all hazards. The mob was determined to tear down and capture the golden shield and eagle over the consulates. They yelled curses against the United States and its repre sentative, cheered for Spain, and called upon Bowen to surrender. Jt seemed cer tain for a time that the fearless consul general would be torn to pieces. A few minutes after he had turned to face sin gle-handed the raging crowd another man, as tall and as determined as himself, fought his way through the mob and, without saying a word, took his place be side Bowen. The two men did not speak together as shoulder to shoulder they stood with their backs against the door. "Pigs of Yankees!" yelled the mob. "Thieves! Dogs! We will cut your hearts out!" Fortunately for the brave pair the great mob seemed to lack a leader. 'Stones and sticks were thrown by people in the crowdi than in a majority of cases he may be and the most bloodthirsty insults and said to be a trained diplomat. In fact, he threats were hurled at hterh, but no one was educated solely with an idea of enter- MRS. U. S. GRANT AND HER TWO ELDEST CHILDREN, FREDERICK D. AND ULYSES S., JR., ABOUT 1854. From a daguerreotype taken at St. Louis, now owned by U. S. Grant, Jr., and reproduced In McCure's Magazine. The death of Mrs. U. S. Grant at her home in Washington Sunday night recalls in the minds of those who knew her early history, much that was, commendable in her character. When Captain Grant re signed from the army in 1854. he went with his young wife, who had been Miss Julia Dent, and their two boys. Frederick D. and Ulysses S., Jr.. to live at "White haven." the country seat of Colonel Dent, Grant's father-in-law. near St. Louis. Colonel Dent gave them abovit sixty acres of ground. They llved^ at the .old home stead about.a year, when the captain cleared a portion of his farm, erected a log home and made an effort to make a farmer of himself. This was uphill work mainly because, of his lack of ability to save. Grant-had a tender heart and a tale of distress AT BARCELONA, SPAIN. Mrs. Grant in the Fifties had the courage to lead a direct attack. For ten minutes the two held the mob at bay. Then a detachment of the Spanish police or garde cevile clubbed its way to the center and then dispersed the mob. "Who are you?" asked Mr. Bowen of the stranger who had come to his rescue and stood side by side with him, while the mob raged. "I am Norman Harrington of Chicago," answered the stranger. "I thought there was likely to be some trouble for the eagle up there, and I wanted to have a hand In it." The American consulate in Barcelona was located in a big building, largely given up, to the offices of lawyers. There is a wide general entrance to the building, which leads into a large entrance hall. From this hall an impressive marble stair case leads up to the second floor, from which smaller staircases on either side lead to the floors above. General Bowen's office was located on the third floor. In accordance with the custom of the country all the doors of the offices in the building are provided with heavy bars on the inside. In the center of each door is a metal slide, which is used as a peep hole by the people inside. Each time that a mob gathered about square and surged intp the hallways of the building General Bowen aroused aston ishment by scorning to bar himself in his room and peer out in terror through the peephole. On the other hand, taking the ground that he had all the power of the United States behind him and that it would ill become the official representa tive of ag reat nation to squint through a peephole in fear and trembling, he in sisted on throwing the door wide open and standing on the threshold, ready to resist violence so far as it lay in the power of a single man. His fearless attitude, it is thought, was more effective than anything else in calming and Tcstrainng the excited mobs. On several occasionsthough Bowen knew nothing of it at the timehe had the pro tection of a considerable body of thorugh ly armed and desperate men.' This secret guard was composed of fifty natives of Cuba, living in Barcelona. Whenever woi'd was brought thrat a mob was about to at tack the United States consulate these fifty men took their weapons and, making their way through the thousands in the square, reached the consulate and. con cealing themselves under the stairways and in other points of vantage, stood on guard until the danger was over. For weeks at a time Mr. Bowen's life was in almost constant danger. But his sense of duty would not let him run away or shrink in any way from facing the danger which threatened. More than once he refused to allow other vlsting Amer icans to assist in the defense of the con sulate. One man who was in Barcelona during the troublous time was W. R. Stringfellow. a lawyer from New Orleans. Mr. Stringfellow offered to go with Gen eral. Bowen when a mob gathered and help him Jn the protection of his office and its records. "No." said Mr. Bowen. "You have no official duty in the premises, and there is no reason why you should expose your- self." "But." Mr. Stringfellow objected, "you might easily be killed while you are try ing sigle-hanried to protect the stars and str pes from Insnlt." "I hope things will not be carried that far," Mr. Bowen'answered U'-'but if life is to be sacrificed' I prefer to die alone in the consulate. Two of us could make small resistance to a determined attack, and I can't, let you risk your life unneces sarily." After the war with Spain was over, Mr. Bowen was an applicant for the appoint ment of minister to Spain, butby a pe culiar paradoxhis record as consul gen eral at Barcelona was too good to make him acceptable as minister to the Spanish authorities and people. Instead, he was sent as minister to Per sia, from which post, as all the world knows, he was transferred to Venezuela when the fire-eating President Castro had succeeded in practically forcing the resig nation of the easy-going Minister Loomis. Such is the man who is in charge of the interests of the United States in the present center of excitement. More nearly any time. The times were troublous and tales of distress were often told then and they were true. Then he was not en rapport with his urroundings. His father in-law and his family were slaveholders and secessionists. He was a union man and tabooed. Of all the Dents, only.his wife sympathized with his views, and she only because she was a faithful and de voted wife. The above picture of Mrs. Grant and her two eldest children was made from a daguerreotype taken, in St. Louis about the time he became a resident at "White haven." The woman who has just died was plain of feature but possessed ster ling qualities o heart and mind that were of inestimable value to her great husband, and that she reared her children well is 5 p)h Cut Prices on Every Item Marked Down Prices for Friday.

Many United States consuls and ministers to Spanish-American countries are not able to speak Spanish and are forced to depend on an interpreter, who may or may not be tricky and deceitful. In this regard Mr. Bowen has a distinct advantage, as he speaks not only Spanish, but German, French and Italian as well. Mr. Bowen's scAren residence and service in Spain have ma.de him well acquainted with the Spanish character and temperament, and he has been long enough In Venezuela to form a good estimate of President Castro and other prominent Venezuelans with whom he is dealing. He is in the prime of life, being 47 years old. Mr. Bowen's father was the late Henry C. Bowen, editor and proprietor of the New York Independent, the well-known religious weekly.H. M.

Only a score of members of the house of commons were present when the, lower house was summoned to the house of lords to hear the king's speech which was an unusually lengthy recapitulation public events since Januarsr. zuela the speech said: "I regret that the constant complaintsapartments which my government found it necessary to address to the government of Venezuela in regard to unjustifiable and arbitrary acts against British subjects and property during the last two years have been per sistently disregarded and that it has be come necessary for my government, act ing in concert with that of his imperial majesty, the German emperor, which has also serious causes for complaint against the republic, to insist on measures of re dregs." The speech refers to the conclusion of the South African war and adds: "There seem? to be every reason to hope that material prosperity greater than any the Transvaal and Orange River Colo nies have yet experienced, may visit these regions and that all sections of the popu lation may live together in friendship for each other and loyalty to the crown." Paragraphs, deal with the postponed cor onation, the colonial conference and Colo nial Secretary Chamberlain's tour which together are expected to be of the "utmost value both in respect to their immediate effect and as precedents in the future." Other topics touched upon were the ex pedition against the Mad Mullah and the co-operation of Italy therein, the accept ance by Chile and Argentine of the Brit ish boundary award, the Brussels sugar convention and the alliance between Great Britain and Japan which the king believes "will be of advantage to both countries and contribute to the maintenance of gen eral peace in the extreme east." Parliament was prorogued until Feb. 17th. The king's speech also said : "The Anglo-Chinese treaty promised to secure no only for this country but for the commerce of the world valuable fa cilities and advantages." The speech closes with a reference to India where the anxiety regarding another famine has been averted by a plentiful rainfall and where the -coronation durbar will be associated with a period of un usual comercial and financial prosperity.

Molineux and an Un known Man Quarreled at Sioux Falls. He May Have Come From New. York to Effect a Reconciliation With Her Husband. Sioux Falls, S. D.. Dec. 18.Mrs. Roland B. Molineux and a man whose identity has not been revealed were the principals In an incident which has set the tongue of gossip wagging among the members of the divorce colony. The incident consisted of a quarrel be tween Mrs. Molineux and the . unknown. What they quarreled about is not known. The war of words continued for some little "time, attracting the attention of several occupants of rooms in the vicinity of Mrs. Mplineux's apartments at the hotel. They could not help but hear the angry voices of the two, although it was only now and then that they could dis .tinguish-what was said. Enough could not be heard to give an idea of what the quarrel was about. Not until yes terday afternoon did information con cerning the quarrfel leak out. Several persons who have their perma nent homes at the hotel were startled, so the story goes, at about 11 o'clock Sat urday night, by a man entering her and vigorously attacking her with his tongue. Apparently greatly an gered by the audacity of the mysterious personage in administering a tongue lash ing to her, Mrs. Molineux. with custom ary spirit, replied to the recriminations of her caller. Curiosity exists as to the identity of the man who believed himself well enough acquainted with Mrs. Molineux to re buke and upbraid her for a reason that Is unknown. There apparently is good foundation for the belief that it was not a Sioux Falls acquaintance who took the liberty of quarreling with her. as this would seem to be impossible in view of the tact that any one who resides here would not be likely to resort to such ex treme measures after an acquaintance ex isting only during the period of about one month that Mrs. Molineux has resided in Sioux Falls. The alleged midnight caller may, it is thought, have been a New York friend of Roland B. Molineux, who quietly came to Sioux Falls for the purpose of attempting to effect a recon ciliation between herself and the husband and induce her to abandon her suit and return to New York. Again, her alleged caller may have been a New York acquaintance who decided to visit her during her sojourn in Sioux Falls, the quarrel resulting from some cause known only to themselves. The mystery surrounding the identity of thewill man has caused keen interest. When Mrs. Molineux arrived she was assigned to room 114 on the third floor of the hotel. She has now removed to room 56 on the second floor, where she has quarters fully as cmfortable as those she abandoned. She is enjoying the best of health, as she plays and sings a great deal, her impromptu concerts and reheld markably fine voice attracting the atten tion of all within hearing.

It hardly made a vacant spot to remove $15,000 worth of goods. The rugs were imported direct from Persia. "The cause of the trouble." said Mr. Board, "may be traced to the indorse ment of over $100,000 in notes for a Chi cago firm which I had to pay.

Dec. 18.The house com mittee on public lands has ordered a fa vorable report on the bill authorizing the land grant roads to exchange odd num bered sections within the limits of tha grants in arid or semi-arid regions for even numbered sections. The object of the bill is to allow the railroad companies or their granters to consolidate their holdings and make them compact. It will affect lands in the semi-arid regions of the Dakotas within the limits of the North ern Pacific grant. It is opposed by some western congressmen on the ground that it will will enable the purchasers of these lands from the companies to acquire large tracts and fence them to the ex clusion of bonafide settlers. The committee postponed the action on the bill to repeal the timber and stone act until after the holidays. Speaker Henderson has refused to al low time for the consideration of the omnibus bill for fish hatcheries in vari ous states. The bill was reported at the last session and is now on the calendar* One provision in it is for the establish ment of a hatchery in Minnesota at a place to be selected by Fish Commissioner Bowers either in McCleary's or Heatwole's district.
