A Happy Time Around a Christmas Twss In
the Lbeary.
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.
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 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,

The cutting down of appropriations isathing
which Wrmises much perplexity for the dat
ocratic majority of the House. 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.
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.
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.
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.
