West Virginia Democratic.
REPRESENTATIVE WILSON THINKS THERE IS NO
TK)UBT OF IT. BUT IS CERTAIN THE REPUBLI
CANS HAVE THE NEXT HOUSE.
W est \ irginia has gone democratic bevond
a doubt," said Representative W. L. Wilson, of
W est Virginia, to a Star reporter this morning.
'?We have the governor, the legislature and
three memWs of the House, perhaps four. I
had the heaviest fight made against me I ever
went through, but I came out all right. My ma
jority in the last Congress was 90; this time it
foots up fnlly 350."
Mr. Wilson is certain that the republicans
have control of the next House, but he does
not think tho majority will be large enough to
be of any greatjidvantage to the victors.

Dr. Allen were also of the party. The minister
has been granted a leave of absence, but does
not expect to return, so he said farewell to the
President, through Dr. Allen, in a very pathetic
manner.

Mr. Higgins Still Happy.
NOT DEPRESSED BT THE OVERTHROW OF HIS
PA11TY?HOW HE ACCOUNTS FOB CLEVELAND'S
DEFEAT.
Mr. Eugene Higgins was standing on the tel
egraph office corner yesterday looking as amia
ble and unconcorned as usual. He was ex
changing pleasantries with a group of friends
and recent political events were being men
tioned. Mr. Higgins is still happy. He is too
used to politics to be depresseu by reverses of
fortuue.
"Yes," he said to ? Stab reporter, "if every
body takes it as well as I do I think we
manage to get along."
The Stab reporter asked for for his idea of
what did it.
"Discontent among the rank and file." he re
plied promptly. "There is no doubt about it
It was not the tariff. It was not knifing. A
lot of democrats who were dissatisfied did not
vote for President at all. The trouble was
down among the 'short-haired democracy-'
they would not work and dM not vote. They
voted the straight democratic ticket as far as
they went They put their ballots in seven of
the boxes, but passed by the eighth, the Presi
dent's box."
As to his hopes for tha futuro Mr. Higgins
aaul merely that four years from now he would
take off his coat and go into the fight as he
always has. ^
Harrison's Cabinet.
4IIJOI PAYBOX Ttl.HI) OP FOB SECRETARY Of
tub interior.
There is a movement on the part of the
friends of Jndge Payson, of Illinois, to push
him for Secretary of the Interior under Mr.
Harrison. It is claimed for him that he is the
best-posted man in Congress on the public land
questions, and other matters especially relat
ing to the Interior, and tnat most of the pub
lic land reforms bar* been accomplished chiefly
through his efforts.
THE CLOSE HOUSE VOTE.
Not More Than a Majority of Three
Either Way.
THE CLERK OF THE HOUSE 8A?8 THE RESULT IS
STILL IX DOUBT, AND THE OFFICIAL COClfT
WILL HE REQUIRED TO SETTLE WHICH FARTX
HAS THE MAJORITY.
Gen. Clarke, tbe clerk of tho House, says he
does not see how It is possible to tell the "com
plexion of the new House until the result of
the official count is announced in every con
gressional district. It is bo now that a few
votes in one or two districts may change it
either way, and ho is not ready to claim the
House for his party or concede it to the other.
Ho certainly has hopes that the democrats will
have a majority of one ?r three. He says it is
almost impossible for the majority to be more
than three either way.
According to his best information, he Bays,
the democrats are sure of 159 members, and
the republicans are sure of aLout or nearlv as
I many. Tho rest are in doubt. As to West
Virginia the democrats do not know whether
they will have one or four Representatives. In
Michigan there is doubt about the election of
Fisher, dem. The result in the lirst California
district is still in doubt. There is a
recount in Rayner's district in Maryland that,
may result in his election, and it is not alto
gether certain, he says, that a republican has
been elected in Louisiana. Ho says he can't
tell, and he knows the republicans can't tell
how the connt in these clote districts will turn
out. Tho only safe thing to sav, he thinks, is
that the majority will not be over three either
Wuv.
The officials of the House generally are in
doubt, and very anxious about the result.
Several of them make estimates every day. re
sulting always in a democratic majoritv of
three. But this was their estimate at a "time
when it seemed certain that tho republicans
would have a majority of at least six.
FOR THE INAUGURATION*.
Additional Chairmen of Committees Ap
pointed?The Executive Committee.
Mr. A. T. Britton, chairman of the inaugural
committee, has appointed die following addi
tional officers: Myron M. Parker, first vice
chairman; E. Kurtz Johnson, chairman com
mittee on transportation; Gen. E. F. Bcale,
chairman reception committee; Gen. H. V.
Boynton, chairman press committee. All of
: these officers will also be a part of the execu
i tive committee, tho intention being to have
| the chairmen of committees serve on the exec
j titivo committee. Mr. Crosby S. Noyes and Mr.
j A. H. S. Davis have also been appointed mem
| berq of the executive committee. Other chair
? men have been selected, but the announcement
of their names will not be made until their ac
ceptance has been ascertained.
CHAIRMAN BRITTON's MAIL.
Chairman Britton's desk was littered with
letters this afternoon. Already his mail has
been greatly increased in size on account of
his new duties. Paoplo Who want to be aides
in the inaugural procession, are in the field
early. One letter to-day wis from three old
soldiers in New York state who want their
expenses paid here so that they can carry in
lino a flag they carried in 1861. A great many
other people ure writing to Mr. Britton. Already
Mr. Britton has set in motion some of the wheels
of the machinery. He has, as stated in The
Star, taken active steps to secure the use of
the court of the pension office building for the
inaugural'ball, lie has, besides, invited pro
posals and designs from bank-note engravers
for the invitations from the ball. Other mat
ters. such as tho 'Humiliation of the citv. have
been talked about, but will not be settled until
they have been considered by committees.
Oen. Schofield, it is stated, will be invited to
act as chief marshal of the inaugural parade.
TnE INAUGURAL FINANCES.
Mr. Britton said to a Star reporter to-dav
that it was desired to make the inaugural fund
a popular fund, open to popular subscription,
and not make it an exclusive thing in any way.
It was desired to have every one who wished
to subscribe, but it was deemed und"sirable to
select subscriptions of less than *10, for
tho reason that it was hoped that all
the money subscribed would be repaid
to the subscribers. To take verv smal
sums would necessitate the opening of" innum
erable sn>all accounts. While the committee,
Mr. Britton said, could not make promises, they
hoped so to manage the business affairs of the
inauguration as to be able to return all the
money subscribed. Their success in
this would depend to some extent
upon whether they secured tho Pension
building for the I inauguration ball or not
If they liad to erect a building it would make
considerable difference in their finances. Mr.
Britton, speaking of tho committees, said he
though t efficiency and dispatch would be secured
by having as members of tho executive com
mittee the chairmen of the various sub-com
mitteee.
Hr. B. H. Warnor,, treasurer of
the committee, said to a Star reporter
to-day that he found democratic citizens here
as desirous of making the inauguration a grand
success as any othcrs.and the committee would
have their co-operation and support.
THE headquarters.
The headquarters of the committee will be
opened soon in rooms in the upper floor of the
Atlantic building, on F street. Mr. W. B.
Moses to-day notified Chairman Britton that he
would supply, at hisfown expense, all the fur
niture rcqired for the headquarters rooms.

hostile criticism as the rosalf of certain utter

on the part of England is that the joint opera

the assent of the sultan of Zanzibar. In the
papers presented to parliament is a memoran
dum by Count Luyden, of the German em
bassy, saying that it is advisable that the joint
action of Germany and England be confined at
first to maritime action, the inference being
that further action is contemplated, at all
events, by Prince Bismarck. Major Liebert. of
the German staff, now further declares that
the object of Germany is to avenge the wrongs
or the German company, to punish the so
called rebels, and to exact Indemnity from Zan

Failure of the Kansas Corn Crop.
RAILROADS ASKED TO REDDCM HATES OX OKA IN
SO AS TOHELP THE UNFORTUNATE FARMERS.
Chicago. Nov. 15.?A dispatch from Topeka,
Kan., says: The railroad commissioners have
addressed communications to the general man
agers of all railroad companies operating in
the state, asking them to give a half rate on
grain shipped to Western Kansas. The board
says: "In certain portions of Kansas, mainly
that section lying west of the sixth principal
meridian, the corn crop for the present vear
was a failure, owing chiefly to the prevalence
of hot winds in July. The same conditions pre
vailed the year previous, but with more de
* tractive effect, over a larger area. To meet
this emergency last year the railroad compa
nies put into effect a reduced grain tariff,
which greatly ameliorated the unfavorable con
ditions then existing in the region stricken.
The present year the conditions are even worse
than they were the year before. Large num
bers of farmers in that part of the state will
find it difficult to procure the nccewry food
for stock which must be supported inVder to
conduct farming operations in the future. It
is of the utmost importance that whatever aid
and encouragement can be extended to the
people suffering from these repeated disasters
should be afforded promptly and generonsly
The bosrd is in receipt of letters from farmers
living in the western part of the state in which
it is represented that similar aid in reduced
rates on feed grain would, the preeent year, be
of very great benefit to that put of the state."

INDIANA DEMOCRATS.
Bow they Propose to Clip the Power
of the Coming Republican Oovernor.
An Indianapolis special to the New York
World says that there is great excitement there
over the story that Oovernor Gray is to call aa
extra session of the Indiana legialatore before
the democrats surrender the machinery of tha
state early in January.
"It is a sweeping plan they have mapped oat
for their finale, and all day long the big guns of
the democracy, Gov. Gray, Senators Yuorheea
and Turpie, John E. Lamb, State Senator Harry
Francis and others have been in conclave try
ing to determine whether they shall spring tha
scheme or not. Again to-night they are closet
ed. and it is understood the date hxed for tha
I stroke is December 10. Excuse for the session
i is found in business unfinished from last win
I ter. when legislation was blocked by the dead
; lock. It is the democratic aim to cripple tha
republicans by removing ail the beuevolcnt in
I mtutioim and the tire and police boards from
the control of the governor and placing then
under acOiumissiou of three appointed by tha
legislature: and to take away from the gov ernor
and give to the legislature the appointment of tha
$6,000 state coal-oil inspector and the state
geologist, and to do numberleaa other thing*
for republican demoralisation. If all theso
plans are carried ont the new legislature,
which is strouglv democratic, will continue
tlieiu, and republican powers will be so clipped
that Gov. Hovev's position will be no fun at
all. The special suasion also contemplates
passing an election law which will sadly inter
fere with republican chances of carrying tha
state 111 l?y0. lint than are big obstacles ia
the shape of a republican speaker and majority
in the lower house, and Got. Gray said to-night
he could not tell whether to call a special ses
sion or not. If he does there will be lively
times in the state house this winter, as the old
liobcrtson fight will be resurrected.
"Tbe democratic federal office-holders here
are determined not to owe an boor of grace to
the republican administration, aud Gen. Har
rison will hud their resignations waiting when
he enters office; this despite the fact that the
commissions of United States I >utrit-Attorney
Sellers and Assistunt District-Attorney Leon O.
Bailey do not expire for three year*, that of
United States Marshal Edward Hawkins for two
years, and those of Surveyor of Customs Au
gust M. Kuhn and Postmaster Aquiia Jones for
a year. Several democratic office holders un
der the federal government are going to sub
mit their resignations some sixty days pre moos
to the inauguration and secure from the dem
ocratic administrntion the appointment of some
conservative republicans to the places. Tha
commissions will be for four years, aud for
Harrison to displace them to make room for
the party spoilsmen here will raise riot and set
the republican factions yet more completely by
the ears. The Indiana democrats do not pro*
pose to miss a trick.
"But before the democratic prosecuting at
torneys go ont of office they will make a deadly
effort to put a quietus upon Mr. Dudley and on
a big assortment of other republicans in dif
ferent parts of the state charged with flagrant
Tiolations of the election laws. Assistant Dis
trict-Attorney Bailey said to-day he did not saa
how Dudlev could escape indictment. In coa
nection with Judge Woods' charge yesterday
it crops out that there are plenty of republi
cans in Indiana who not only hate Dudley hut
believe he did write the letters, aud hope ha

comprising some of the bast republicans in tha
state. hasTong decried Dudley's performances,
and Judge Woods, though a stanch partisan, ia
numbered among their allies on the twin iaoasa
of civil-service reform and parity in elections.
That the corruptioa to whicn the Dudlev latter
gave impetus carried the state for Harriaoa
there is little doubt, and it remains to be aeaa
whether Judge Woods, who is Harrison's warm
friend and looks for elevation from him. will
subdue his partisanship and continue i
