THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, DECEMBER 28, 1898.
WASHINGTON NEWS. President Very Busy, Despite Holiday Season. WAR INVESTIGATION DISCLOSURES More Than Likely to Lead to an Open Itupture Between Official The Terri torial Expansion llattle General Lone;, street Atlrncl. Allenl Ion Sample of Queer betters Iteceiveil by the I'real tlent The Indian Problem Whipping Poat Argument, With congress away for the holidays, public matters are about at a standstill. The president has some relief from the dally grind Incident to congress being In session, but not to such an extent as many people think, owing to the pres ence In the city of many senators who want to discuss various questions with him. The Paris treaty Is in his harodu and will go to the senate next week with a good, strong message. Many society leaders are waiting with much anxiety for the social season to be formally opened, and this will be done on New Year's day. After the New Tear's reception at the White House, the eoolal functions will begin In earnest and continue until Lent, and the social leaders will vie with each other In the magnitude of the entertainments given. General Mile and the Admlulntratinn A Crl IohI Nil 111 Inn. As the Investigating committee on the conduct of the war progresses In Its work of taking testimony it becomes more and more evident that the bad feel ing which Is being engendered as the result of disclosures mode will soon re eult In an open ruptuie between Gen eral Miles on the one side and the sec retary of war, the adjutant general, and the commissary general on the other. The testimony given last week by Gen eral Miles, and his positive assertion that the troops In Cuba and Porto Rico were fed on "embalmed" beef Instead of fresh beef, created a profound sensa tion In administrative circles, and has set on foot an Incipient whirlwind which threatens dlstructlon to the reputations of some high military officers. General Miles' assertions are met with a very emphatic denial by the commissary gen eral, who furnishes food to the troops, and he demands that General Miles be required to testify under oath, and that the truth be brought out. This matter has been the one thing talked about more than anything else this week, and has greatly stirred up military circles. It Is no secret here by those who are In the confidence of the president that he, as well as Secretary Alger, Is not pleaeed with the course pursued by Gen cral Miles In seeking to encompass the defeat of the administration bill for the Increase of the army, and In covertly divesting himself of all responsibility for the location of several camps which proved unhealthy and caused the death of fo many of the volunteer soldiers, Until a week ago U was believed that the 111 feeling which existed between General Miles and the administration as represented by Secretary Alger and .General Corbin, would only smoulder and not become visible to the public, bir this view ot the case no longer prevails, and now every one la waiting to see and hear the explosion. General Mllea has warm supporters Who charge that he can no longer sub mit In silence to the treatment accorded him, and that the time has come for him to turn and fight back. On the other hand, friends of the president al lege that General Miles has shown a spirit of insubordination to the commander-in-chief of the army, and thrown obstacles In the way of the ad ministration in carrying out Its War policy, and that he will be brought to an accounting. They even Insinuate that a court-martini stares him In the face. The Fight For and Against Territorial Kxpanalon. Thus far only three carefully prepared speeches have been delivered in the sen ate on the policy of territorial expan sion, one by Vest In opposition thereto, and one by Piatt of Connecticut and one by Teller of Colorado in support thereof. The speech of the latter was extremely patriotic and deliberative in character, and very forcibly made, and received the hearty commendation, not only of the Republican side of the chamber, but of nearly every Demo cratic senator. Senators who have carefully canvessed the situation say that the treaty is certain to be ratified by an almost unanimous vote, without any modification, and that the opposi tion, which at first threatened to be jqulte etrong, Is slowly disappearing. Some senators go so far as to say that even Senator Hoar will not record his vote in the negative, but will content fclmaetf with endeavoring to have an amendment made to the treaty declar ing that it Is not the intention of the United States to annex the Philippine Islands, but to set up and support an in dependent government by the natives. If this amendment Is not accepted by the senate, as It will not be, Senator Hoar will cease his opposition, and vote for the ratification of the treaty. A Kamou Confederate Oenernl, One of the most central and striking figures at the capital, and who won re-I nown as a fighter on the Confederate I side during the Civil war, Is General ' James Longstreet. He is fully six feet tall, Is of large frame and walks very erect His hair Is almost white, and -long, grey side whiskers add very much to his appearance, (met him recently In the office of a member of the cabinet, 1 and found him exceedingly genial and courteous. He Is afflicted with deaf ness to such an extent that he Is obliged to make use of a speaking tube when holding conversation. His mental powers are undiminished, and he de vote his time to attending to the du ties of the office to which he was ap pointed by President McKlnley com missioner of railroads, at a salary of $4500 to succeed General Wade Ilamp-, ton, who was appointed by President rUtlAllllul M 1009 fblHAMl t 1 I was, ostracized by many of his Con federate friends and people In the south, for having, early In the administration of President Grant, accepted the re mit of the war as an accomplished fact and, caat bis lot with tha Republican party. For this he was never forgiven by many of his former associates, and he found, as one of his friends expressed It, that "Jordan was a hard road to travel," so far as remaining in the south and becoming prosperous, and he is glad to live In Washington Instead of the south. Aaka the I'r.alilent to Chance UU Luck. Some of the letters received by the president are veritable curiosities In literature. The following Is' a copy of a letter which came In his mall quite re cently: Niagara Falls, N. Y.,Dec. 14, 1898. Mr. McKnely, Washington, Maryland: Dear Precedent Exculse me to take the liberty to write to you. I am a French man. I live in this country 12 years. I diden't loose my time to have my papers to be a sldlsln of the United States. So like France I like the republicans. I have been voting for the republicans since I a;m aloud. Since I am In Emerlca I have such bad luck and I wish you would be so good as to change my luck If you pleas. I wish for you and all your rtlatln to have good luck. I have E children and most of them are born in FJmerica, Dear Sir, you are egukated and know this country. I wish if you can there Is so much land in Emerlca have a piece to make a home for my family. And to raise cattle for the suply of the United States. I have raised cattle In the old -country. Dear Sir If you can do something for me I will rember you for the rest of my life. I wish please if you can get me a place. I will pay what Is needed little every year. Hut I would not like to go some place where the climet Is bad or danger from the Indians. I would be only to glad to have a home for my family. I would be perfectly willingly to raise any cattle that Is needed. I will thank you very much If you can do something good for me. Excuse me If I trouble you. Very RespectuUy yours, Civilizing the Inillxna. That the Indians are slowly but surely becoming civilized in their mode of liv ing and adapting themselves to a new order of things without resorting to bloodshed Is no longer a matter of doubt. The evidence Is overwhelming in support of this statement. At the same time the Indian has much to contend with and is confronted with scheming, wicked and conscienceless white men whichever way he turns, who seek to cheat and defraud him of what little property he may have acquired, so that his faith In human na ture must at times be sorely tried. Th policy of the administration is now to break up all tribal relations of the In dians, so far as holding vast reserva tlons of public lands In common, and to Induce the Indians to take allotments in severalty, and to allow their surplus of lands to be sold for the benefit of the members of the tribe. While some of the largest tribes have accepted this proposition, others appear chary about doing so and regard the matter with sus picion, apprehending that It is only an other attempt to defraud them of their rights heretofore guaranteed by treaty. They have been deceived and misled so often that they naturally are reluctant to surrender that which they know be longs to them by right and which the government of the United States has solemnly pledged shall not be taken from them except by their own consent. Re cently the Creek Indians In Indian Terrl tory held an election to decide whether they would accept a treaty made with other tribes in that territory by the Dawes commission which provided that the lands should be allotted and thesur plus sold and they rejected It. Before the election a small handbill printed In the Creek language wag circulated among the Indians, setting forth reasons why the treaty should not be ratified The objections were shrewdly and forcibly put and would have done credilt to a New York or Boston politician, and probably were the honest sentiments of a thinking Indian. The following ex tract from the circular shows the In dlans' method of reasoning: "At no time have we ever occupied lands In allotments, hence it will not be suitable for us. The United States has her citizens on individual allotments, and even for them it Is not good, for we see many of them very poor, not owning even a very humble home, passing about In poverty. When we see even them in this condition we feel that allotments will more surely bring us no good but punishment rather." Will Not Baiiolloa the Whipping Poit The president Is opposed to the use of the whipping post as a method of pun Ishment for crimes committed. The Choctaw Indian nation by its legislative council recently passed a law providing for the whipping by the lash of persons detected In thieving, and strenuous ef forts were made by persons represent ing the tribe to Induce the president to give his approval to the measure, but this he would not do and returned the bill, upon the recommendation of Secre tary Bliss, disapproved. The Indian chiefs claim that whipping is more dreaded by the violators of law than lm prlsonment,' and that the opposition to such punishment Is based purely on sen timental grounds. All acts passed by the Indian council have to receive the approval of the president before they become a law. Mall Kervlce In Ihe Philippine. The posloffice department Is arrang Ing to send a force of clerks to the Philip pine islands the latter part of January to establish postofilces on the largest of the islands and arrange for mall service, tnd In selecting persons to go the post- master general will include several new paper men, who are anxious for an op portuntty to write the new possessions up. The list has not yet been fully made up, but the applications are numerous. The pay fixed upon is $1000 salary and $4 per diem for expenses. The United States geological survey will send early In January to Porto ttlco two of their most accomplished field of ficials, Messrs. Wilson and Hill, to make a reconnaissance survey for the purpose of ascertaining the mineral wealth of the Island, and to prepare topographic maps. A detailed geological survey will follow. These officers will be furnished trans portation by the war department, and General Henry has been Instructed to give them all necessary assistance In the discharge ot the duties assigned Commodore Cromwell, commandant of the new naval station at Havana, has notified the navy department that he has hoisted his flag on the auxiliary cruiser Resolute, which has Just arrived at that port. That vessel will remain at Ha vana as a station ship, them. W. BCOTT SMITH. Victims of the Grim Reaper In 1898. JANUARY. 1.

In brief, I looked upon a cat as a lightning con ductor on a small scale, and that accor ding to its temperament, negative or nositive. did it face north or south, or just as the points of its fur were attracted oy tne negative or positive puir ui uk earth. I was led to this by some obser vations I had made some years previous lv in the London suburb. Then I noticed that the cats of that particular district ad a tendency to walk in particular ms- trict had a tendency to walk in particu lar directions on the walls that lacea tne north rather than to walk on walls that ran east and west. As to the idea that cats are good wea ther causes. I do not credit that. I be lieve that the reason a cat washes itself over its ears or not is bound up with a oarticular method by which the particu lar animal cleans itself. Its main object in washing, to my mind, lsjast to complete an electorial circuit, for by so doing it generates heat and, therefore, a pleasing sensation in its fur. Lassen s Magazine.
