Young King Alphonso, of Spain, calmly approaching his third birthday, is a lucky little fellow, for he is not likely to be kissed as much as infants not of royal blood. He isn't puffed up as much with pride as most monarchs are. Emperor "William, of Germany, celebrates his birthday to-day." Plans forthe announcement of the accession of the Duke of Nassau to the Dutch throne when the old King dies. A column of gos Bip is brought to-day by cable about the crowned heads of Europe, IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. Copyright The only monarch in the world of whom ab solutely nothing disagreeable is said, His Majesty, King Alphonso, of Spain, is get ting on toward his third birthday, and pre parations for the event are being made and written about, though it is several months off. A great many industrious writers and correspondents continue to pour out informa tion regarding this important baby. One full-grown scribbler declares with the ut most seriousness that the little King is mod est and unassuming and gives no thought to his exalted position or his future destiny. A truly remarkable thing in a boy 30 months old. It seems, too, that his Ion; list of names, nnd the fact that he is officially known as the well-beloved son of the Pope, brother of all gentlemen who wear crowns, and cousin to all Spanish grandees, has not inflated him with pride. The principal misfortune of his lite appears to be that he has no one play with him. Ifo child could be allowed to plav with him, unless it were old enough to understand how careful it would have to he not to infringe the royal dignity, and be side tbe Queen is atraia ot causing jealousy bv conlcrnue noon any great lady thi lie honor of having her children T. . " ... - - . . Z . play with the King. The hardest work to which this young monarch is subjected is that of receiving his ministers, dignitaries of state, generals, grandees and so forth, while sitting on the throne in his nurse's Ian, a ceremony which entails his sitting still while all these things pass be ore him. At Wednesday's recep tion 2,000 great men of various kinds tnrned up to see the King and bow to him. One precious advantage which this royal baby has over ordinary ones, and which cannot be exaggerated, is that everybody who comes along and admires his yellow curls has not the right to kiss him. PLAliNG A SURE GAME. Baron Rothschild's Way of Betting at Monte Carlo Very Tantalizing. fBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, Janury 26. The Dishatch correspondent tells of many great or re markable persons now disporting themselves at Monte Carlo. The most interesting of all is Baron Adolphe de Rothschild, a gen tleman, who it appears produced a trying effect on the nerves of the croupiers and the onlookers generally. When our very rich man, Mr. Vanderbilt, was there he disap pointed the folk by not playing as he should have done, but at least he put down as much as fiat a time and risked all in one fell swoop, win or lose. Bothschild,how erer, begins with SI on a certain color, and plays doubling up until he wins, marching off happy with his five-franc profit when it comes to him. A curious fact.and one of which is looked upon as evidence of providential interfer ence in Bothschild's favor, is that he never loses at this game of doubling, which, with the limit system, has often proved fatal to others. The Baroness, his wife, a very clever and homely woman, has constantly appeared in a billicock hat, and surprised the inhabitants ot Monaco by refusing to be present at a grand concert on the ground that she had no hat suitable to wear. Some funny people made an effort to get up a sub scription in the Baroness' behalf, but the thing fell through. THE KAISER'S BIRTHDAY UcIiir Celebrated in Germany To-Day In a Rather Peculiar Manner. 'BY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. Berlin, January 26. To-morrow lis the Wrthday of Emperor William. Just now 2,300 school children, picked out for being good, are celebrating the event in rather a doleful fashion by listening to a patriotic play in the Opera Hon si. To-morrow morn ing the trumpeters of the guard will play a hymn from the tower of the Town Hall, to express the general gratitude for the event, and about noon there will be lots of music everywhere by the military bands aud the firing of 101 guns. There will not, however, be very much in the way of real rejoicing except among the military officers, whose welfare appears to be the Emperor's one thought, PATTI THINKS IT FOOLISH For Any Womnn to Appenr In Public With a Handsome Chap. tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. LONDON, January 26 Mme. Pattt sails for Buenos Ayres on the 4th of March. The prima donna of whom it must really be said now that her reputation is her greatest attraction is permanently disgusted with the French, on account of her reception in 1'aris, and more particularly tne very marked enthusiasm that greeted De Keszke, who sang with her. Patti is credited with the opinion that it it is foolish for anv woman to appear before the Parisians and have a very handsome chap singing with her. JNIFTON'S CHANGE OF HEAET. Once a Frlze Fighter, Now a Quiet, Re ligious Dairyman. TBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. An unusually pronounced change of heart is that of Jack Knifton, once a prize fighter and opponent of Jem Smith's to the extent of being captured and locked up with him as they were going off to fight. Knifton is now a teetotaller, a religious man, and a dairyman. Not only that, but he has organized a grand concert for tbe religious body to which he belong?, and Lady Colin Cambell, Miss Fortescue nnd Sir Richard Webster, the Attorney General, figure on the list of those who have promised to sing tor the prize fighter. A LITTLE LESS DECOLLETE DRESS Liable to be One of the Features of tho Queen's Drawing Room. (Br CABLE TO TUB DISPATCH. 1 London, January 26. The first drawing room is announced for February 26, and there is great excitement among the young English girls just out who have to be pre sented and among American women of all kinds except the most sensible kind. The dressmaking for the event is well under way, ana very severe praying is being done that no sudden mourning may afflict her Majesty's family between now and the 26th, and so compel all those whom the Queen is to receive to turn up in black. The Queen has often been asked to change the date of these very early drawing rooms to some more comfortable season.and to spare the feelings of thin younp girls and old dowagers who have to sit shivering for hours in their carriages waiting for their turn to come to spread out their trains and bow. The cold weather doesn't affect the Queen, and therefore Her Majesty has once asain announced that she sees no good rea son for altering the venerable custom. One innovation which will mark the early drawing room results from the proc lamation of the Queen that those who come to see ber need not wear their dresses as low as formerly. This concession will notapply to the drawing rooms in warm weather, when the ladies will be expected to appear with very little in the way of clothing visible above their waists. ILLNESS OF THE CZARINA. A Sudden Shock Likely at any lime to Ter minate Her Life. BY CABLE TO TIIE DISPATCH. London, January 26. The arrangement by which the Empress of Russia was to have gone to Naples will very probably have to be altered on account of the alarming state of her health. She has been unable tore cover from the fright of the Borki railroad disaster, and it is thought that any fresh shock, such as an earthquake or an eruption of Vesuvius or anything of that sort, might be fatal. The Italian scientists and others will in vestigate things very carefully and make sure before the Empress goes to Naples, whether Vesuvius is apt to be troublesome at present. The Czarina suffers from a sort of palsy and prolonged trembling fits, ac companied by hysterical crying. It is doubtful whether she will ever entirely re- AN INTERESTING EUMOR. The Succession of Priuce Ferdinand to the Roumanian Throne in Doubt. IBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. A very interest ing rumor comes from Budapesth. The Queen of Boumania, as everybody knows, has no children, her only child having died at an early age. Since then she has con soled herself by writing poetry under the the name of Carmen Silva. The King's nephew, Prince Eerdiyand, of Hohenzol lern, has been looked upon as the heir to the throne, but according to this rumor the Prince will now have to look for some orna mental position in life, as his succession is threatened. The rumor is unfortunately rendered im probable by the fact that the King has lately bought in Jassy an establishment for the heir apparent's permanent residence. WHEN THE OLD KING DIES The Dutch Parliament Will at Once Declare Ills Successor's Accession. BV CABLE TO THE DISrATCn. London, January 26. All the arrange ments have been completed for the succes sion to the Duchy of Luxemburg in case the poor old King of Holland should drop off suddenly. The little Princess will be the Queen ot the Dutch, but the Salic law, with no respect to women's rights, prevents her inheriting Luxemburg. As soon as the King dies Parliament will be assembled, and a proclamation announc ing the accession of the Duke of Nassau will be read, after which two deputations win start on, one 10 tne Hague to weep and condole officially with the relatives of the dead King, and another to visit the Grand Duke and rejoice with him. BALFOUR MUST ANSWER, O'Brien Will Call Him to Account m Soon as Parliament Sleets. tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. In Ireland interest has of late centered in William O'Brien's so-called trial, and the complete success of his efforts to make ludicrous the administra tion of the coercion law. This, and not a desire to avoid the prison, is the secret of his escapade at Carrick-on-Suir. He is at present engaged in completing some tactical arrangements on certain estates where the plan of campaign is in operation, after which he wilfsurrender to the police. For the brutal bludgeoning and bayonet ing of the people at Carrick, Clonmel, Clon akiltyand elsewhere, Balfour will be called to account as soon as Parliament meets. EATING THEIR HUMBLE PIE. How British Dignity Suffered at tho Dinner. to Sir. Phelffe. TBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. The dinner given to Mr. Phelps by the Lord Mayor on Thurs day appears to have stirred up a lot of hit ter feeling among Englishmen, and many of the newspapers are complaining of the lack of British dignity shown by eating humble pie after the treatment received by Sackville. The Times, different from thesei has nothing but good to say of Mr. Phelps, and only aj proval . for all the kindness shown him. The approval of the London Times, how ever, is not the best recommendation for an American. KEEPING 'IT IN THE FAMILY. The Heir Apparent to the Belgian Throne to Marry Ills Cousin. rBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. The throne of Belgium is evidently to be kept well in the family, if it be true that Prince Baldwin, the heir apparent, is seeking to obtain from the Pope a special dispensation to permit him to marry his cousin, the Princess Clementine, the present King's youngest daughter. The Pope's special permission is rendered necessary by the near blood relationship of the parties. A BLOW AT BIG HEADS. The Size of the Hat Not Always Indicative of That of the Blind. tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. London, January 26. The fac, has leaked out that Salisbury wears a No. 8 hat, and so the theory that a big head means a big mind must be definitely abandoned. An enthusiastic Tory, who says his head is 7K4 size, has dealt another blow at bis heads. by the way. He went into a shop and tried ! on an old hat which lay upon the counter. which proved to be the Prime Minister's, and which came right down over the big headed Tory's ears. Sirs. Chamberlain Getting Very Popular. IET CABLE TO TBE DISPATCn.1 London, January26. Mrs. Chamberlain Is getting more and more popular in Birm ingham, and causes many of her husband's political sins to be forgotten. Every one peaks enthusiastically of her simplicity, j her crace. and accomplishments cenerally. ! Mrs. Chamberlain s court dress, like that of many others, is already being worked on, and she is to call upon the Queen in a state of gorgeousness that would be well worth exhibiting. A DIGNIFIED STAND Taken by the House in Its Considera ' tion of the Senate Tariff Bill. A PRETTY. BREEZY DISCUSSION Kesults in Sending it to the Ways and Means Committee. AN EAELT EEPOETNOTAT ALLPEOBABLE Crookedness Disclosed In the Snperrisln? Architect's Office. The House had a long and lively discus sion yesterday on the Senate tariff bill and the request for a committee of conference. Some members asserted that the Senate had usurped the prerogatives of the House, and the bill was finally sent to the Committee on "Ways and Means, This committee is not expecfed to make a very early rtport. The results of the investigation of the Supervis ing Architect's office are becoming sensa tional. Washington, January 26. The Mills tariff bill, with the Senate substitute there for, together with the request of the Senate for a conference, was laid before the House by the Speaker to-day. Mr. Beed, of Tennessee, moved to confer on the Senate substitute; Mr. McMillin, of Tennessee, reserved the point of order that the substitute must first be considered in committee of the whole, while Mr. Mills, of Texas, raised the point that it must he re ferred to the Committee on Ways and Means. Mr. Beed advocated the immediate con sideration of the Senate measure, and quoted a sentence from the tariff speech of Speaker Carlisle, in which he says: "It is the imper ative duty of the representatives of the peo ple to reduce the revenue before this Con gress shall adjourn." He urged speedy action on the bill, and said that the refer ence to the Ways and Means Committee meant delay. Mr. Mills said that the bill, under the rules of the House, should receive its fiist consideration in committee of the whole. The Senate had been busy in defiance of the Constitution, preparing the bill, which was now sent to the House before the House had sent its bill to the Senate. Now it was proposed, in violation of the rules of the House, that the House should agree to a committee of conference and pass this ex traordinary measure at a time when the cof fers of the Government were loaded with excessive revenue; at a time when the peo ple were groaning under excessive taxation a bill to increase the revenue by increas ing the burden on the people for private purposes. SPEEDY ACTION NECESSABY. Mr. Mills. McKinley, He said: of Ohio, followed Mr. The questions as to whether thero is to be any revenue legislation before the conclusion of the present Congress depends very much upon the action taken to-day upon the motion made by tho gentleman from Maine. Every body knows that if the bill with the Senate amendment is sent to the Ways and Means Committee no practical legislation will bo had at this session of the Congress, and the question ot the reduction of the revenue will remain pending for nearly 11 months, or until Congress assembles next December and addresses itself to the subject of tariff legis lation. So that, at this very point, the House will determine whether the country was to havo any reduction of the revenue, or whether internal revenue collections are to be contin ced for 12 or 14 months. The Senate, a co-ordinate branch of Congress, has respectfully asked the House to grant a committee of con ference. Only once in the history of parlia mentary legislation has that request been re fused. It is not a question of high tariff; it is not a question of low tariff. It is a question whether the Honse will meet the Senate in free and open conference and see if their differences cannot, be composed and reconciled. The House has given tbe country one bill, based on one principle and following out one public policy; the Senate has given the country another bill built on a different public policy. The House wants to reduce the public revenue, and it can reduce the nnblio revenue. without the gentleman from Texas surrender ing one lot of his principle of free trade, or without the Republican side surrendering one jot ot its principle of protection. If the House will meet the Senate in free conference, and only occupy common ground, as found in both bills, it conld reduce the revenue from $35,000, 000 to 510,000,000. All that is necessary is to ex amine the items conynon to both bills. ON COMMON GBOUND. First the abolition of tbe tax on tobacco a reduction of 30,000,000. That is common to both bills. Then there is the free list common to both bills. Both bills contain the adminis trative features, both seeking the same object, both looking to the honest collection of the revenue and the honest administration of the customs laws. This House has already spoken on the subject. Only the other day, as express ing its desire to have the tax taken from to bacco, it refused to send a bill to that end to the Committee on Ways and Means, and had sent it to another committee because it be lieved that that committee would give tbe House a chance to vote its sentiments and reg ister its will. The administrative features of the bills have nothing to do with politics. They have noth ing to do with free trade or protection. They bave nothing to do with high tariff or low tariff. They are above politics; but they havo everything to do with the honest administra tion of the customs laws, whether based on the principle of protection or on the principle of tree trade. Why not, as practical men seek ing to relieve the Treasury of its congested condition why not meet the condition which tbe President had described T Shall we refuse to reduce tbe revenue of the Government? We have the opportunity to do it, and to do it this morning; but if this bill goes to the Committee on ways and Means, mark my words, there will be no practical results reached at this session of Congress. I ask tbe gentlemen on both sides of the House to signalize tbe close of this Democratic Con gress with some practical, patriotic resnlts. M'JIILLIN WAKMS DP. Mr. McMillin suggested that Mr. Mc Kinley's remarks would be very fine for a stump speech, but had nothing to ao with the rules of the House. He continued: The gentleman has said that tbe House has given the country one bill, that the Senate has given it another, and that these bills are en tirely different and framed on entirely differ ent ideas. In the face of this declaration (more candid than I could have expected from any man) the gentleman requests the House to walk up and surrender its constitu tional prerogative to frame revenue bills and give it over to tbe Senate. Are you (appealing to the Democratic side) ready to do itT Have you so far deteriorated from the principles that your sires held as to be willing, at the request- of the gentleman lrom Ohio, to surrender the right of the House to frame a bill in accordance with tbe people's principles and give it over to the Senate, which is not elected by tbe people! Others may do as they please, but for me I will never, never consent to any such terrible and unprincipled degradation of the riehts of tbe House and the privileges of tbe people. The gentleman says tbat there can be selected out by this extraordinary cowardly Droccss $30,000,000 or $10,000,000 of revenne that can be remitted to the people. I deny tbe assertion. There is no 30,000,000 common to both bills. THEY TALK BACK. Mr. Beed again appealed for speedy ac tion, and Mr. Breckenridge retorted that the remarks of the gentleman showed that he had merely made his motion for the purpose of giving himself and his colleague (Mr. Mc Kinley) an opportunity to make speeches to the country, and seemingly for the pur pose ot putting tne Democratic side in a false position. He asserted that the Senate was responsible for the delay in passing the tantl measure. Mr. Mills and Mr. McMillin then sub mitted the points of order, -which they had held in reserve; and the Speaker decided that under the rules the bill must be re ferred the Committee on Ways and Means. Mr. Beed then asked for unanimous con sent for the present consideration of the bill, but Mr. Mills objected. Mr. McKinley then asked unanimous consent for the consideration of a resolution making tbe tariff bill a special order for February 5. and providing for vote on concurrence or non-concurrence in the Senate amendment after 12 hours' debate. To this, also, Mr. Mills objected, so the bill, with Senate amendment, went to the Committee on Ways and Means, AN ARCHITECT'S BAD PLANS. Supervising Architect Frcrct Said to Dave Been Engaged in Several Little Schemes. Washington, January 25. The ex amination into the affairs of the office of the Supervising Architect of the Treasury was continued to-day. J. E. Hosford, a draughtsman, testified that himself and another clerk had an interest in the contract for drawing the plans for the Bridgeport, Conn., building. They selected an archi tect who would give them a partnership in the contract, which they could not have while in Government employ. Witness had been solicited by an employe in the office to contribute to the Democratic campaign fund. He had refnsed a first and second time, but it was put to him a third time in such a way that he voluntarily contributed. Otto Simpson, another employe, confirmed the testimony of Hosford, and said in addi tion that the contract tor plans for the Bridgeport building calls for the payment of $1,050, while the work could be done in the Supervising Architect's office for $485. S. W. Somerville, of Detroit, was next examined. He is the man who has been making a perspective of the Detroit build ing, under sub-contract with John L. Bogue, of Georgetown, who is a draughts man, engaged in map making. Witness explained how it came about that the job was done in that wav at the instance of Supervising Architect Freret. Witness and Freret agreed upon the price, and Bogue was selected as the man to make the bid. Witness could not take the contract in his own name, as Freret knew, and it was to avoid the law that Bogue offered the bid. Witness did all the work and paid $10 for the use of Bogue's name. This was all done at the request of Mr. Freret. Testimony was elicited showing that a contract similar to the one made in the Bridgeport case, is in existence for furnish ing plans for the Vicksburg building. VERT SLOW ACTION Will be Taken In tbe Committee oa the Senate Tariff Dill. Washington, January 26. The tariff hill has been received by the Clerk of the Committee on Ways and Means, and a meet ing has been called for Tuesday next to be gin its consideration. It is the intention to discuss the Senate amendments thoroughly in committee, and estimates will be prepared showing the probable effect of them on the revenues, from the standpoint of the Ways and Means Committee. This will, it is expected, take some time, and an early report upon the bill does not appear to be probable. A CATHOLIC CHURCH BURNED. The Polish Congregation of Buffalo Is With out a Building. Buffalo, January 26. About 11 o'clock to-day fire broke out in the Polish Church of St Adelbert, nt East Buffalo, situated at the corner of Stanislaus street and Bother avenue. The flames spread with great rapidity and the interior of the structure was ablaze when the firemen arrived. In a short time the roof caught and fell in with a crash, a portion ot the walls also fell and the structure was practically ruined. A large crowd of excited Polanders gath ered in the vicinity and extra police were summoned to the scene. The loss will be $60,000 to $70,000. Insurance, $50,000. MUST HATE THE B0IS. Findlny Glass Manufacturers Kick Against the New Labor Law. rSPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.l Findlat, January 26. The leading glass manufacturing establishments have sent a committee consisting of W. A. Gor- by and James Dalzell to Columbus to work against the passage of the bill introduced to prohibit the employment of children under 14 years in any kind of factories. Manu facturers here claim this law would work a great injustice to many flint glasshouses jn the State, as well-grown boys of 13 or 14 years are an absolute necessity to compete with factories located in other States.
