Faroo. Dak.. March 15.? A meeting of farm
er* will be held next Wednesday for the pur
pose of deviaing, if possible, some means of
relief from the binding twine monopoly. It is
proposed to establish a large twine factory and
manufacture flax fiber into twine. Last I
year there were 329.288 acres planted to flax in 1
the territory, and if it is once demonstrated
that a good qualitv of binding twine can be
ninde from this fibre there will l>e no trouble
in procuring all the raw material necessary to |
supply the home demand.
THK CHICAGO VIEW.
Chicago. March 15.?There is a difference of
opinion among local dealer* in finding
twine, most of them contending that
no trust or '-orner has been organized.
A member of one large firm, who recuutly re
turned from an inspection of the eastern market |
says that tne present situation
has grown out of the law of supply
and demand. His view u that for two years
buyer* have been conservative, and conse
quently stocks have not been kept up. Sud
denly it is discovered thst the supply is inade
quate, and consequently prices increase.

Victoria Angry.
Trom London Truth.
Qnsen Victoria is annoyed beyond
by the marriage of Prince Atsvsadsr of
tenhorg with the actrass. Mile. Leissngsr.
Shs thinks it provoking that after having
allowed her daughtsr sad granddaughter to
eoatrset morganatic slltanoe with two of the
princes of Battenbvrg, that a member of the
family should marry an astrsss. It is a well
known fact that tha qnsen has zealously ex
srted herself to forward Prince Aletandsr's in
terests, both publicly and privately.
The mortiAcatinn of the fmwrsss Frederick
is even more profound, as she had oonstitated
herself the champion of Priaas Alexander

What the Waitln^Offlce-Seekers Hop*
For.
THAT A BIO BATCH Of NOMINATIONS VOL BB
iui n ox mrou-m nmcua u
non?tmb opposition to nntuw ud
pbomtnent touncun n ww*.
This day had very little sxcitsment in it for
the ?nay of office-seekers. The Senate was not
is ie?io? udu no appointments would there
fore be Made, there waa neither disappointment
nor gratification to watch for in tha line. The
thing that disturbed them waa that two good
da\s were being wasted. According to their
way of thinking a great many nominations
might be sent in to the 8unate dar
ing two days. Bat until Monday, now
none can be hoped for. They lire now in ex
pectation that a big batch of nominations will
go in on Monday as the roeult of th?? delay. Of
coarse the Senate would not have adjourned
over if they had not known that the President
had no further use for them during this week.
This is merely another indication to the minds
of the office-seekers that the President is in no
sort of hurry. No policy has yet been an
nounced to anybody, but it is thought that one
has been pretty plainly indicated by tliis delib
eration. What politicians are talking about is
the
DELAY m FILLING THE FIRST-CLASS 10REIGN MIS
SIONS.
It was popularly expected that they would all
have been filled by this time. The delay gives
rise to the rumor that there is a hitch some
where, but the chances are that the only
"hitch" is that General Harrison wants to go
slow enoogh to be sure of doing the right
thing. It is said that Mr. Blaino wants the
British mission given to Whitelaw Reid, and
that some of the members of the national com
mittee are opposed to Reid's selection for that
particular mission. It is understood that
Chauncey Depew is being poshed for the
English mission.
KB. JOHN a HEW
arrived in the city last night. From the mo
1 ment he reached the city he was beset by of
fice-seekers, who assume that his influence
would be potent to get the.pi most anything
they want. They all assume that he has some
tori of mortgage on everything under the ad
ministration, and can. by merely saying the
word, have anything done. They have been
pressing upon him almost as much to-day as
upon the President. They want to reach the
President through him.
It in generally believed that Mr. New is
booked for a good foreign mission, and that to
Austria is generally mentioned as the one be
will get. He says he is not getting anything;
that there is no foundation in the statement
that he is to go abroad.
COL. FRED. GRANT
called on the President to-day, and it is sup
posed that they had something to say abont
the Chinese mission. Gil. Grant's friends aay
he will be United States minister to China.
OENZRAL OOFF,
who has been trying to get his seat as governor
of West Virginia and to straighten up affairs
out there, has returned to Washington after his
failure to get what he considers Justice out of
the supreme court of the state, and to-day had
an interview with the President. It is supposed
that he has some very decided views as to the
methods of conducting elections in the south.
His friends assert that had there been a fair
deal he could either have been elected Senator
or governor. f *
THERE 18 A CONTEST Olf HAND
between Maryland and Delaware over the col
lectorship of internal revenue for that district.
Senator Higgins wants D. Dawson, of Delaware,

ant interview with the President, aud is con
fident that his candidate wiU be successful.
MANY CALLERS THIS MORNING.
A. R. Hart, of Brooklyn, candidate for
public printer, had an interview with the Presi
dent to-day, and came from the White House
expressing confidence to his friends that he
would be appointed.
It is said to be settled that A. S. Whitfield, of
Ohio, is to be second assistant postmasters-gen
eral.
The President saw a great many callers this
morning between 10 and 12 o'clock, but there
were fewer delegations. Senator Spooner was
with him for a while before the cabinet meet
ing, and Representatives Morrow, McKenna,
Bingham. Dunnell and Henderson. ex-Repre
sentative Thomas and Delegate Dubois, called
THK ILLINOIS PEOPLE
are said to be getting very impatient over the
matter of the "recognition" of their state, and
there is a little friction between the Senators
and the members of the House. Some of the
members are complaining that the only thing
they have got was the appointment of Tichenor
as assistant secretarv of the Treasury, and that
while everybody approves of hiB appointment
as the best possible, they do not think be ought
to be charged to Illinois.
GENERAL LONOSTREET.
with a delegation who would like to see him
get some very good appointment under this
administration, had an interview with the
President to-day.
THE DISTRICT COMMI98IONERBHIP.

Washington delegation, filed some more in

A Senator stated to the reporter that at the

was announced, and the special committee of
seven headed by Senator Piatt was con tinned
with a view to Ailing tbe vacancies that will be
occasioned by Senator Chaee'e retirement. The
reasons announced in the caucus for the
resignation are said to have been of a business
nature: that be was unable longer to neglect
his affairs at home. He had intended not to be
a candidate for re-election; bnt for political
reasons, it ia said, it was dee ned beet for him
to accept a re-election and be sworn in. The
legislature is still in session, and a successor, in
case of Mr. Chace's resignation, can be elected
without delay. Among the persons spoken c* ?

A SHARP REPLY.
South Washington Citizens Answer Maj.
Raymond on the Railroad Question.
Messrs. C. H. Parker and Philip N. Dwyer,
representing the South Washington Citizens'
association, replied to-day to the endorsement
| of Maj. Raymond on their letter respecting the
tracks on H street southeast, which was pub- I
lished in The Stab In their communication
handed to the Commissioners to-day they say:
"The published endorsement by tbe engi
neer Commissioner on a paper relative to rail
road obstructions, submitted by the under
signed, calls for a reply, which will be to the
point. We are neither sworn nor paid officials
of the District and do not consider ourselves
the proper persons to assist the Commissioners
in doing their duty. Is there not a number of
sworn officials (see obstructions to police and
police regulations) whose business it ia to see
that the United States statutes are not violated,
and that the streets are not obstructed? We
think it would be a very simple thing for the
Commissioners to pause a few minutes and
reoall a few instances where the
railroad is obstructing certain streets
in direct violation of the law, and in fact under
the written permission of the Commissioners.
(See opinion of the attorney for the District in
the matter of switch into gas company's works,
Southeast Washington.) Would it not be a
very simple mAtter for Major Raymond to ex
amine the record, send one of his assistants or
go personally, visit the localities and make the
necessarv affidavit? It seems to us it is in the
line of his duty to see that the public streets
are not obstructed. Should his office duties
prevent giving personal attention, why
not instruct the police department to
investigate and procure warrants, as is
done in the case of a poor peanut
vender who, in search of a few penniee, stops
his cart and is run in for obstructing the streets.
The familiar "Why don't you flic an affidavit?"
is a chestnut of some age. If the authorities
were anxious to perform their duty and protect
tho property-owners, they would revoke all
illegal permits without further delay and pros
ecute the railroad company who violated the
law. We once more politely ask the Commis
sioners to do their duty and order removal of
the track on H street northeast."

An Authority Criticised.
THE "ACTIOS OF DOX't" TAXES TO TASK OS
POINTS or ETIQUETTE.
To the Edltorbf the Evekikq Stab:
Of course The Stab is not responsible for
the opinions of correspondents, but when the
"Author of Don't," as an authority, gives suoh
advice as was set forth in "Etiquette and Man
ners" in last Saturday's Stab, a reader may at
least criticise the "Author of Don't" a* an au
thority. Customs may be slightly different in
different cities, and we have some peculiar to
Washington, but 1 think all I shall notice will
applv aa well to one place as another. In the
first letter quoted the answer "yes" is given to
the question "is it customary for ladies to take
off their bonnets at a formal luncheon?" I say
decidedly no; in fact a formal luncheon is often
spoken of as a "bonnet" luncheon, implying the
almost universal wearing of bonnets at such en
tertainments.
Again, in reply to letter third, "yea" is an
swered to the question whether guests should
leave cards at an evening reception. Again I
sav no. It is not customary, in thia city at
least, for guests to carry card cases, or leave
cards, where they would appear in full dress.
In letter twelve, I take two exceptions to the
answers given. An "At Home" is defined as
meaning in a hostess "merely being at home
at the time designated, and does not imply an
entertainment of any kind." The generally ac
cepted definition ot an "At Home" in Washing
ton would be an evening reception, with guests
in evening dress, music generally, flowers and
un elaborate supper, instead of the "no enter
tainment" prescribed by the "Author of Don't."
But most absurd of all is the answer given to
the question "What is a cajd reception?" "A
reception in which cards are introduced?pro
gressive eucher. whist, Ac.,?and usually lakrt
piare," whatever that may mean, "at 8 o'clock!"
Certainly our authority cannot have been
in Washington during the past four years,where
the card receptions of the White House and
cabinet have been such features of social life.
If she had been here she would understand
what is the significance of a card reception, oue
for which cards of invitation are sent to all ex
pected guests, in distinction to the general re
oeptions given weekly by ladies in official life,
where everybody is welcome, strangers as
well as friends.
Poesibly the "Author of Don't" has heard
that a card reception is soon to be given at tyie
White House under the Harriaon regime. I
wonder if she were to be a bidden guest whether
she would expect to be regaled with old maid,
or progressive eucher. She might carrv off the
booby prize! Co?ox Seme.

An inviting lunch was served this afternoon in
the office of the president of the Metropolitan
railroad company to stockholders and directors
of the several street railroad companies. After
ward tbe party, oonsisting of Messrs. Pearson,
Grover, Brown, Green, Moore, Dr. Clarke, Dr.
Clagett. Be all, Cooiidge, Cammack, Wilson,
Greene, Johnson, Riley and Thomas
were shown the workings of the United States
Indicator Co. for a device announcing streets,
which was explained during a trip of a street
car aet aside for the party, and was generally
considered to be a suocess. This street
annunciator consists of a box a little less than
2 feet square and about 8 inches thick, contain
ing a cylinder, on which is rolled smooth-sur
faced canvas. The canvas is divided into
squares, the upper half having on it in large
letters the name of a street, while tbe lower
portion is occupied by an advertisement
The instrument is operated by the oondnotor
through the medium of a knob or strap. When
the car approaches an intersecting street the
strap ia pulled and the name of the street is
visible to the passengers, while their attention
is directed to the change by tho ringing of a
small alarm ball.
Mr. Glover was warm in approval of this in

A Cold-Storage Sociable.
i From the Chicago Herald.
A wr U-known attorney, who has musical and
literary tastes, accompanied his wife the other
night, under protest, to a -sociable" at her
church, in one of ths fashionable southern
?aburba. Tho young enthusiast who had in
charge the music and literary program was
dead onto him a* soon as he entered, and he
asked him to favor the company with a piano
?olo. There was no war out of* it, so he bad to
chase himself over the key* for a brief period.
At the wind up of the regular program the
young enthnaiast arose, and. in the manner of
all voung church enthusiast*, said: "We have
?11 been delighted thi* evening by the piano
?olo of onr dear brother . and venture to
?ay that he will f?vor ui at our nest sociable
with a brief paper upon an interesting and ap
Sropriate subject, and I think I may promise that
e will do so. ' Well, the lawyer found himself
caught between the base* and he had to lie
down. But ho got beautifully even. He did
read a paper at the neit aoctobl*. and it* sub
[ Ject was "Cold Storage." He argued that a
vast refrigerating atorehonse could be connected
by a system of underground pipe* with the va
rious church sociables in the city and suburb*,
and that the extreme coldnee* generated at
theae gatherings could be piped to the ?tore
bouse for the preservation of egga, fruit, meat,
and vegetable*. It waa a masterly effort,
though it was not fully appreciated.

He Called, and They Came.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A laughable incident occurred in tho bar- I

of gentlemen, among whom was Major John 8.
Mellon, were discussing the strange disappear- i
ance of Cell us Price and Sylvester Nidelet, and |
the conversation drifted on to apiritoaltom.
Major Mellon, who has investigated to the
point of belief, declared that he believed he
could summon to communion the spirits of
departed friends. Pending the discussion,
the party adjourned to tho bar-room and |
ranged themselves at the counter. There
were five of them, and Major Mellon
