TOTS AND SEATDOL oIFTs POs RP.gAWiN AND MARY N'EE-PRamENTs FO THE PRESIDENT AND ARS. BARaisON AND OTHER EEUEM A O THE ROUSEHOLD-A PLEA5A1 1A5 .T OATE ERI.\O. The tootig of a tin horn in a series of more of less musical notes was the signal for the commencement of the Christmascelebration at the White House this morning shortly after 10 o'clock. When Mrs. Dimmick blew this juve nile instrument, faces came smiling from every door all around her in the corridor upstairs. and soon all the members of the presidential family bad assembled in a laughing procession. At the head of it was the President and Dr. Scott, Master Benjamin and pretty little Mary McKee. A stream of light shone from the lib rary door and away in the corner of that his toric apartment glistened like a thousand stars the Christman tree. The subsequent proceed ings would interest all the world could the roof of the White House have been lited off and everybody had a chance to peep in. AROL'ND THE TREE. On a table near the tree were copies of Mas ter Benjamin's address and the invocation to the Christ-child, both the inspiration of the children's governess-Fraulein Hampe. These were handed about. and while the little ones spoke in tBerman their audience was just as appreciative as if every word was understood. After this formal part of the program every body had a chance to inspect their gifts. The children found theirs-toys of all sorts and kinds-arranged around on the floor under their tree. One side devoted to Mary's gifts had a full set of baby doll furniture, with baby dolls, lady dolls and boy dolls, a piano, a kitchen outit and a quantity of other feminine necessities in the world of babydom, while Ben jamin had a steam engine, a couple of trains of cars, a full suit of armor, books, pictures and all manner of things to tickle a boyish fancy. GIrTS PoE YaS. uARaaiO. On a table near by were Mrs. Harrison's gifts. It was like a bride's collection, and all the members of her family, as well as nysny promi nent persons all over the country, were repre sented by valuabla tokens. Even while she was admiriug them others were arriving--a beautiful cabinet and a box of potatoes, from the ideal to the real, so to speak, were among the articles that came too late to be classified. The potatoes came all the way from Salt Lake City, and the smallest one of their would weigh from three to four pounds. One of the Mlur phys from Mormondom was shown to the Presi dent and exhibited among his gifts. Some of the others will grace the Christmas dinner along with the usual accompaniments Steward McKim has so liberally provided for the feast. Three or four other tables held presents for the President, Mrs. McKee, Dr. Scott, Mrs. Dimmick, Lieut. and Mrs. Parke- and all the household retinue. Nobody knew what the other was to give and the surprises and pleas ures would make a long story. Dr. Scott felt his youth renewed in entering into all the sports of the children, and they in turn didnot enjoy any of their toys or presents until he had passed approval of them. THE HOUSEHOLD. The family spent a very jolly hour together and the clerical force, Mr. Halford, Mr. Pru den. Mr. Tibbets and Mr. Moutgomery,were all in to see the fun, as were also Capt. Dinsmore, Mr. Turner and Sergeant Johnson, who es caped by turns from minding the big front door down stairs. Mr. 1. H. Hoover, the White Houso electrician, treated the company to a delightfui surprise by weaving in one cor ner of the room a cobweb and a spider. Of course the web was silver wire and the red body of the spider had an electric light burn ing behind it. The effect was perfect. All the servants took part in the celebration, and Benjamin and Mary had a present for them. Jerry, who is the light comedian of the mansion, kept up his reputation for fun and caused the President to utter the only apology he will have to make today. When Jerry wished him the compliments of the season the President told him how much he regretted not being able to present to him his favorite deli cacy, a 'possum, and, amid roars of laughter, Jerry responded that he had nothing agin a turkey. It was regarded as a fortunate thing also that Jerry wore his red necktie today, as the sparkling diamond in the middle of it helped to disperse the gloom in the dark cor ners of the house. The President yesterday presented to each employe of the house an order for a turkey or a pair of gloves. Mrs. Harrison added to this by a personal gift. Mr. Russell Harrison came on from New York this morning and was at the White House in time to eat breakfast with his jarents. A tele gram was received from Mr. McKee from Jersey City, showing that he was that far on his jour ney, and if no further delays were encountered he will get here in ample time to enjoy the best part of the day with his wife and children. The pretty little address prepared by Mary McKee is as follows. "Grossmama Dir Gottes Segen. Glick Und Freund Auf Allen Weggen, Und Gesundheit aller best, Zu dem schonen Weihnachtfest." A surprise awaited the President when his young grandson proudly preuted the first specimen of his penmarship. executing with infinite labor the following address. which he declaimed with appropriate gestures and quaint little bows: "Meinen Grospapa deni lieben. Hat dies Versehen iih t g hrieben, Dass er zu dem heilgen Christ, Hiet von mir beschenket ist, Zu der schonen weihuachtazeis, Dei sich alle welterfreut.

It is a very much easier thing to talk about reducing e penditures than it is to make the reductin. The appropriations committee is constructed with "retrenchment and reform" in view, and in all probability there will be some very deep cutting by that committee. But that eommit tee have not alone the say as to expenditures. The only bills they have charge of are the leg islative, the sundry civil. the general defciency, the District of Columbia and the fortifications. The Indian, the naval, the army and military academy. the consular and diplomatic, the river ands harbor, the agricultural and the post office appropriation billsare distributed among other committees, and undess all agree upon a general policy the efforts of one com sittee to economize ril not be very productive of re suits, and there is the probability of very dis proportionate appropriations. A nuh2ber of the alpropriations made by the last Congress are continuous and cannot be cut of except by legislation or involve, by reason of eon tracts for work started, additional appropria tions by this Congress. These present ques tions that are very difficult to deal with. PUOPOSrIozIs TEAT NroET CAUSE A conwTin1. It has been proposed that aclausebe iaserted in one of the appropriation bills repealing the sugar bounty and the steamship subsidy, but th is a thing that wil be very dilicult of ac mplishment and the attempt might resuit in a very long session with a hot light between the Hose and Senate, and fnally in the fail ure of the bill upon which the rider was placed. These expenditures must be continued or there will be a tremendous fight. Very rigid econ omy may be put in practice in the ordinary government expenditures, but at the best, very many millions cannot be saved by cutting off clerks, reducing delaries, and cuttingdm contingent expenses n the ordinary govern ment service. leyond theme things there is very little that Mr. Holman's committee has control of, and as an ofeet for the poitieal necessity of a reduction of exponditures. there are very urgent demands for unusual appro priations, as in the case of the world's fair and provisions for the payment of Indian claims which were appropriated for by the last Con gres, but not paid for the reason that there was not over much money in the treasury. To make any material reduction in the appro priations there must be some very deep cutting by the several other committees having app priation bila in charge, and there will Imeas difficulty in bringing about a concert of acion. It is expected, for instance, that there will be a very earnest demand for an increase all alm. the line of the establishment of the Agrica tural Department, and in the present state of poitical apprehension it will require a great stock of courage to refuse anything that a de sanded in the name of the former. TEi NAVT AND DIPLOMATIc snvaio. In view of the pesibility of a brush with Chile and in the light of our experience of doubt and anxiety, being threatened by tort eign complications, propositions to iedaee en penditures for the navy may !ad assay n pediments in their way. The same complce tionsma inspire the framers of the conslar and di appropriation bill with the idea that our international afairs are of such importance as to demand especial attention and liberality of provisions for the diplematie service. The postal service is spre'i and there is a demand for greater potalf* tiss, which may increse the expenditures beyond the receipts. AA these things stand in the way of thep icy of economy nad- aresset diclsew wil require great skill to overcome. From the contemplation of this situation the thoughts of the eoomists naturally tarn to the river and harbor expenditures. There is some talk of having no river and harbor bill or of greatly reducing the appropriations for the improvement of waterways. But the very mention of this idea provokes a vigorous test, and it develops that the west must he a large expenditure for the improvement and enlargement of facilities for water transporto tion whatever else may suffer. TE CHILEA aITUATIOM, Serioas Aspects of the mse-The rsp.aa Message to Congress. There appear to be good reasons for the be lief that the Chilean situation is more serious than the public generally appreciate. The ex act situation is not generally understood. The difference of opinion and the misinformation current appear to arise largely from the feet that the attitude of the Chileans as represented by their minister in this country is very differ cut from that occupied by the government on their native soil. Minister Monttisveryfriendly and conciliatory in his manner before the ad ministration and is said to be holding out on all occasions the prospect of a satisfactory set tlement of the difficulty between the two coun tries. But meanwhile his people at home are making things as disagreeable as possile fee' the American minister and for all represen ta tives of the American government in that coun try and are maintaining an attitude of arro gance, defiance and absolutt hostility. It is yet to be developed whether Minister ilentS is sincere in a desire to reach a settlement which will be satisfactory to the United States or whether he is merely playing the part of a dilmtfrthe purpose of gaininag time. It is probable that the United States governument is as much in doubt as are the public as to what the outcome of the matter will be. It Is probable that Mr. Blaine is not deceived by any professions that may be msde without acts to sustain them, but this country is strong enough to be forbearant until forbearance cases to be a virine. The new government of Chile will soon be fully established, and everything depends upon the action of that government. At this tune there does not appear to be any particular reason to expect that there will be any radical change of sen timent in Chile or any ddEerence in the coo duct of that goves nment, but at the me. timse they will be given an opportunity to do the p roper thing and this government will be rn lieved of the possible criticism of having acted too hastily should hostilities result. At the same lime it is certain that thedint of the United States will be maintained and if satisiaction for the outrages that have been perpetrated is not given by the new Chilean government soon after its insisnasian the mutter will probably be laid before Congrems coon sftar the holiday reina for such aton as appears necessary.
