"Washington. Nov. 29.?Rigid ccouo- !
my in public expenditures will be the
Itepubltcan programme for next win?
ter. Mr. Reed has Impressed this ne?
cessity upon a number of the older
members whom he honors with bis con?
fidence, and with whom he llnds time,
notwithstanding the rush of callers,
to consult regarding mutters not con?
nected with the personnel of the com?
mittees. This doesn't mean that a
cheese-paring policy will be adopted
or that great public works now in pro?
cess of construction will be discontin?
ued In order lo reduce appropriations.
But It does mean that not a dollar will
be expended unnecessarily, u means,
too, that no money will be voted for
new buildings except where urgent ne?
cessity exists. It Is also understood to
mean that the river and harbor com?
mittee will be constituted as to reduce
those appropriations lo the lowest point
consistent with the needs of the gov?
ernment, ir this policy bo faithfully
observed It will follow that a number
of small streams and harbors upon
which moneys line been expended
with more or less liberality In past
years will be passed over by the next
House notwithstanding tin- probability
that the members interested In these
works may use I heir Influence to defeat
the bill.
Mr. Reed has riot so far as can he
learned, formulated any policy with
respect to tariff or financial legislation.
Not only he but. the other Republican
leaders in the House- are disposed to
await tlu- President's message before
deciding what course the party shall
pursue upon this and other questions
of national importance. The continued
deficit In the Treasury is causing un?
easiness among the members, and the
suggestions which have been advanced
to meet the situation are as diverse
as the BCCtlons they represent, and a
sorts of antagonisms are manifested.
Mr. Reed is quoted as saying thut no
measure Increasing tariff rales will tin
his opinion) be signed by the President
oven If It pass .the Senat'.', which be
regards as problematical.
The contention that the desired relitf
can be found i" the- adoption of a prop?
er currency measure having for iis pri?
mary object tin- retirement of the green?
backs does not in.-et the approval of the
majority of the Republicans, although
it is believed that a recoinmendatlo i lip?
on these lines w ill be contained in the
President's message. It is also as?
serted that the President will contend
that under tin- present tariff law cus?
tom receipts wiii so Increase that they
will bo equal in all the requirements of
t be public set vice. Mr. Reed maintains
a studied silence upon all matters con
riot ted with tin- committees. Gossip,
however, assigns Mr. Henderson, of
Iowa, to the charmanshlp of the Com?
mittee on Appropriations. Payne, 61

No arrangements have been made
by the managers of General Hender?
son's candidacy In regard to putting
him before the caucus.
Representative Cannon said this af?
ternoon Hint there would be no trouble
on that score. There were plenty of
men able and willing to do the Job, and
the candidate's record offered a rich
Held. Me also said there would be no
further meetings of General Hender?

so fnr as he knew.
A final gathering of the McDowell
men will he held at 7 o'clock to-morrow
night in the room of the Committee on
Ways and Means. The- managers of
Mr, McDowell's candidacy said this
afternoon that they would Insist upon
a roll-call for the nomination, that they
would oppose u vole by ballots.
There was a report current In the lin?

Henderson's friends have abandoned

to have also the appoval of at least
twenty New England members, with

"Business has not Improved, though
there la very little change except shrin?
kage of pi-le.es, which a period of Inac?
tion naturally causes. Retail stocks

many on account of the unfavorably

M'lull Urudstreel lias to Sny.
The volume of general trade shows a
falling off compared with the preced?
ing week, largely owing to the Inter?
vention of the Thanksgiving holiday,
but In part' to the continued effect of
mild weather East and South, storms
in the central West, and the usual dlsr
inclination of buyers to add to stocks
during the closing ir.onth of the year.
Western jobbers report activity no?
ticeable in clothing, woollen goods, rub?
bers, shoes, and holiday : [c. icUaltleS,
with .some Increased demand for coal
and light hardware.
General trade remains unchanged at
the South, with mercantile collections

dency of cotton to move slowly, und the
movi m.'ut of merchandise smaller than
In October. Texas merchants report
a lair movement of notions and fancy
goods, but acknowledge lo distribution

There arc 2bS busineu failures report?
ed in the United States this week,
a noticeable falling off from the total
one week ago. 222. and even when com?
pared with the lotul one year ago. 207.
The most striking industrial feature
is the continued reaction In prices In
lion and steel, Bessemer! pig being off
25 cents and steel billets fractionally
lower, with rcactlor.it in prices for wire,
si i els and other forms. There Is little
likelihood of an Increased demand or
a reversal of the price movement prior
to the middle of Jauuiy. There is an
Improved demand for boots and shoes
a.t Baltimore, Chicago and St. Louis,
as well as at some New England manu?
facturing centres, while at Philadel?
phia On- demand Is nbt so conspicuous
as previously. Dry goods arc quieter
with tiie continued unseasonably mild
weather, and tin- revival of the holi?
day trade. The s'Lrength of cotton
maintains the price of cotton goods.

Mate J^ns P. Peterson and Second
Mate H. J. Johaiisou, ot the Danish
fiult steamer Hoihil, who were arrested
yesterday on a warrant sworn out by
Jose Congoalo. Spanish Consul in this
city, on the charge of caryrhig a
Cuban filibustering expedition when
she left this port on November 9th. All
Ibo witnesses denied Hint there were
any additions to Hie crew of twenty
live at any time during the voyage.
They also stated that no filibusters
were aboard the steamer, ami further
that the only persons on board from
the time the boat left Philadelphia until
her at rival at Pei l Antonio were the
members of the crew.
Two members ol the crew test Hied
that the Horsa was not chased by a
Spanish gunboat off the coast of Cuba,
as was chronicled. This! point ,wus
brought out by Captain Korr, counsel
for the defense. Captain Herr then at?
tempted to show thai an effort had
been iria.de on behalf of the Spanish
authorities to bribe one ol Hie wltne-JS

ruled out this testimony on the ground
of irrelevancy.
At the afternoon session Carl Arh

The witness understood that two gen?

before the destination was reached.
When the coast of Cuba was reach?

were lowered and ammurUllon was

flllbusterers then got into the life boats
and the steamer started to tow the
boats tovyard Port Antonio. When an
approaching light was seen, however,
the sir.aJl boats were cut adrift und
forty?clgth bbxjsi of ammunition were
thrown overboard." The witness stated
that John D. Hart was on board the
Iiorsa and that In remained aboard
until the ammunition and men boarded
the Steamer, He then boarded the tug
boat, which had brought the filibus?
ters to the Horsa. Arnslou I entitled
that each of the Horsa's crew was to
receive 525 for keeping silent about Hie
expedition, and be iindeistood Hum one
of the filibusters that John D. Han.
ihe owner of che vessel, was to gel $12,
900 fur landing the expedition. .ros
examination the witnesses stated that
he was not lo receive any compensation
for making these disclosures and that
hi had no desire to gel tin- accused Into
trouble by giving the testimony.
ArnslOli repealed his narrative of tin
landing of the filibusters, lit re being

Attorney Ker made a It ngti)y address,
In which he argued against tin- ei n
Hnuahce of the cases or tin- holding of

argument was in tin- nature of an ap'-j
peal for the- dismissal of tht case 'ind
for the District Attorney to abandon the
prosecution because "you know no jury
would convict these men."

Augusta, On., Nov. 'JH.?Aukuntil Ima
started a plan, to Include tho whole
South, for a Southern Cotton lixposl
tlon la Chicago.
After several days In consultation
with Mr. it. Dc Merit rd. of tin! Now
York Dry Goods Economist, Ihe fol?
lowing plan has been mapped out:
it Is set forward that both consumers
and Investors will be attracted lo the
South lu great numbers by pi oof that
Ihc South can produce more cheaply.
The South omi sell more cheaply than
any competitor.
II Is prcwosed to supply this pmof by
holding a cotton i <(posltlon in Chicago
Whose broad purposes shall be
ii) To iiihIic new customers for res?
ent products,
(j) To open direct lines of dlsl dilu?
tion between producer und consumer.
(3) To bring to Hie knowledge of the
capitalists In a most forcible and coi -
vlnclllg way. the great opportunities for
i ]"(ll which Southern cotton null:, af?
ford. And. finally;
il) To show 10 Ihc great West that
Chicago is Ihe natural and logical uls
trlhuling center for $270,000.000 worth of
cotton goods ituhiinlly, which the South
must, and will, naturally make; ami lo
offer to Chicago the great prize of un
immense I rude in exchange for.'Ohlcu
ii's mighty assistance' In building,up
the South.
The exhibit should be as practical mid
business-like In Us nature as expedient,
with en,inch of the picturesque civil.cut
to make It attractive to tin- public
It should be devised to appeal lo
three great classes, delllied as follows:
K?r the general public?picturesque fea?
tures cotton culture, preparation, meth?
ods of shipments, cel., plantation
scenes, Southern cotton inarkots.Noi th
ern cotton exchanges, etc. Comparative
exhibit of cotton machinery from the
earliest times to the present. Modern
cotton machinery ut work.
For tin- merchant?A very full and
complete display of Southern cotton
goods, in comparison with Now Eng?
land-made goods of similar grades.
Elaborate displays by Individual South?
ern mills. Models of leading Southern
mills. Large maps showing distances
and freight charges. Full comparisons
of quality and selling prices.
For the Investors?Very full and
thorough object lessons In relative
costs, North and South. Now inachln
e'rj contrasted with old. The great
earning power of new- equipments In
ihe South. Low com of construction
and low capitalisation In the south.
Comparison ol" wages, cost of raw mu?
lt-rials ami freight charges, North and
South; Southern water powers.
This Is but a rough outline of the
many useful details that will suggest
tin nisclves.
It should be carefully noted that un
enormous outlay is not contemplated;
A vt ry moderate sum of money would
serve every practical business purpose,
and with Judicial management, the
earnings could be made t<> pay all ex?
pense;; Specially constructed I lilld
IllgS are not essential, although It
might be expedient to provide them.
Only till' main outlines of the propos?
ed Chicago. Cotton Exposition are set
forth above; bin there arc ninny tie
tails of great practical value that ban
b.- elaborated. 1 will bandy allude to
them-here, In connection with tin; gen?
eral plan I would advocate the forma?
tion of a cotjtnti goods' commission
company in Chicago to sell only South?
ern cotton goods, ami t<> represent as
many Southern mills us possible. The
great dry goods merchants and capi?
talists ?l Chicago would be the Interest?
ed parties. The same interests should
be enlisted in the founding of Southern
bleucherlos, print mills, and starch
works. That motiv. that should lead
Chicago lo work with all its energy to
further these projects Is the most
powerful "f human motives, namely,
self-interest. Chicago has $j:.o.0uu.O00
cotton goods' trade within reach when?
ever it st i etches out Its hands to get It,
nut ii does not know It.
A cotton exposition in Chicago will
Intlkc that great city aware of the
greatest opportunity In its whole mar?
velous history. It will bring to the
aid of the South a powerful ally whose
inmost energy will be put forth In tho
cause "t Southern development, because
th, re arc hundreds of millions In It for
New England and Now York welcome
the South as a customer; they dread her
as a competitor, ami they will Impede
her as much as possible In her struggle
to developed her manufactures. The
self-interest of the East Is against the
South; the self-interest of the West Is
for her. The Western alliance Is the
South'* true pulley.
