Whatever else may have bees said of the people of Leavenwortb they are food tiitrtaiara and vhey know what will entice the Kansas legislature away from home. , . . AHKI VAL AT LXAVKXWOBTH. A good many of the people were alone as regarded friends, and they succeeded iu getting up tnwn before supper time. Others bad friends who would take care of them and they suc ceeded iu KeltiUK ud town before bed lime, which was not so bad after all, as they bad to staud in the cold mean- wniie. A good many of the carriages had to make three trips. There are lota of nice place in Leav enworth where you don't have to sign a blank of any kiud and tbe visitors, with the aid of tbe natives, were not slow iu ouuiug tnem. ' It was a revelation to their parched souis aim tuey were not slow iu camp tng on the oasis in their lives. . A half dozen different hotels were the guests assigned to and they were all on hand at supper.

Immediately after roll call Chief .hstH-e Hnrton. governor M rrili, Senator Baker and tbe state officials advanced on the platform and there were c -M Sapper was then announced, and bet. .. ere trvuieudoiis cheers Kau sas leglBlatorj know good thing wbeu tliey see H. There were a iooJ many diversions during tbe supper The most popular contributor to the feast, however, was a certain Mr. Jiries Murrain, vho had bs name n the labels Tbe wbole legislature Is sure of that, because ever) member of it looked carefull at thr IhM to see that there was no imposition by the substitution of an Inferior article. Jobn J. Ingalls was not present, though the reason of bis aoaeuuu does appear. Tbe address of welcome was dis pensed 1th J H. Gdpatrick of Leavenworth was the toast roaster. In his Introduction he spoke of Mr. Duller in very (Uttering term, and Mr Baker should hve blushed, b it thxt gentleman came to the gathering with arleteimln linn to hrtve trmrarnrin Hi whatever cost, and it is well he did. LUCtEN IIAKElt'H Si'ESCH. AsSenttnr Biker advanced to the front of tbe pUtform tlieie wm a stir ring scene. Loud Rlier.4 greeted him handkerchief wer waved and hats were thrown into tbe air. It was a signal for a grand demonstration and the crowd was not slow In giving it. Senator Baker's speech was verv much like others he has made. That's it eond idea of the senator's that Kan sas shall not be ashamed of bim. fie spoke of the joint action of the lelala ture lo levl .f hlna. Thl-a had noth ing to do with Leavenwortb hospitality ixl freedom t all, hut it brought a good deal of applause nevertheless. At the close or ms speeou tiere was aery from the audience. "What'ii f-e matter with Bakery Ue'a all right," and this was followed by cries for Bur ton. It was hard luck for Mr. Burton, but Gov. Morrill was introduced uext. Air. Morrill said: "If there Is one man that ought to feel proud tonight it ia Mr. Baker. He was tbe cblc of aa intelligent legislature. (Loud and boisterous applause from the legis lature.) ; ' n ', '-' : Mtt. HUliTOS CALLED. There were then cries for Burt- n. and Mr. Gllpatrick called him to the stand.. Mr. Burton advanced aud there was a great deal of applause. Mr. Burton's remarks were humor -eroiiB, or as much so as those of a man In his position could expect to oe. He said: "We have met the enemy, butI don't want to explain what bap pened. I don't want to hazzard ' oiy own chances In the future." ' He knew who was feeding him and said a kit. of nice tblnes about Leaven worth, whose glory was greater thau than the noonday splendor, lie de plored the tendency to permlnt public men .to be assailed Tbe applause seemed to weaken here. "It is damn able to assail tbe character of a public servant." he said. "Character can be assailed, but it can never be assassinated"- Me also referred to John tfnermau and .bimetallism and tbeie was muoa applause. "Mr Baker's in" tegrlty is second to none," he added further and we will stay with him." - Albert H'. Horton was next on the Khiram. He spoke particularly of Cy lend, and said that like Grant, he was always more of a worker than a talker, '(applause.) B..rton was a tnlllant orator, (applause,) Hood was a successful business man, (morn ap iilauae,) and Thacher was a good man, continued applause.) but that Baker combined all these qualities (tremedous manifestations.) Justhera.Mr Gilpatrick broke in to announce that the excursion train leav ing in the morning would go at any tlmefrom nine o'clock to eleven and there were loud cries of "eleven" which showed conclusively that tbe Topeka people knew a good thing when tbey bad it. Speaker Lobdell spoke next and compared Senator Baker to a cojote in such a way tliat it was most flattering to the coyote, and deauMtatrated Mr. LnbdfiU's Innocent . Ignorance of the beast In attention. David Overmyer was on the bill to tell "How a Democrat Looked At It It will be remembered that Mr. Overmyer bad no small part In the recent victory, and he had a right to talk. "It looks to me very much." he said, "like it would look to a man up a tree. At the present stage of the banquet It looks verv mucn line a democratic ban ouet. (Laughter.)

Luclen B iker is the loved of fortune. 1 had rather have Luclen Baker's luck than a license to st-al." There was loud applause and laugh ter at this. Governor Smith of the' Soldiers' Home then spoke and referred to Sen ator Baker as the friend of tbe soldier, at which there was more applause. After he got through A. J. Felt of Atchlnson spoke on "The Kansan at Washington." Mr. Felt said there was nothing in his veins but hydrant water and he hoped it would not be necessary to Qle an affidavit that he was dulv sober, lie snid be was proud of Kansas at Washlnton. He spoke of John James Ingalls, ' Old Glorv," a id denounced the gold standard and there was great applause all through his speech. Senator Ed. O' Dry an of Wichita was verv eloquent in bis address and told how the Wichita democrat in the legis latuie voted for the Leavenwortb re punMcan for enat"r.

THE TREASURY PROTECTED. Tha Sonata Flnaaoa Committee rails to Beach a t'onelualon aa tha Bllla U far I Appropriation BUla Unpatented laaOa. Washington, Feb. 6. It was learned at a late hour last night that the bond sale is an accomplished fact. The an nouncement will be made aa soon as the already assured defeat of the pend ing bill based on the president's last message is determined. In the Uouaa or senate, if the house falls to pass the bond measure the sals will be declared on Friday. Should a bond or currency bill pais the house there will be but little farther delay, as the senate finance committee has decided adveraa j on bond legislation. Thus tha sale will ha proclaimed as advertised this week certain. The cabinet is a unit om tha financial qqeation, the president and $crUry Carlisle being ia perfeot harmony aa to Ike policy batng- pursued. The cabinet masting yesterday, the. visit of PUr poat Morgan and others from New Yoj-k and- subsequent conferences at the white house were all important. Tha subject of a possible sadden raid on tha gold reserve by certain parties in New York not pleased with tbe ad ministration's eourao was discussed. When the day elosed every arrange ment had been made to proteet the treasury. Bond sales will be retorted to whenever necessary, and never again will the reserve be allowed to run so tow as it is at present. The senate finance committee again failed to reach a c-onelualon yesterday npon bill before it A vote was taken on a substitute for Mr. McPherson's bill, resulting 5 to 0 against, affirma tive votes being McPherson, Morrill, Sherman, Allison and Aldrlch, aad the negative being Voorhees, Harris, Jonas (Ark.), Vest, White and Jones (Nev.). The substitute for the McPherson bill, whloh was voted down, was a proposition suggested by Mr. McPher son providing for an issue of short time 3 per cent bonds to meet the de ficit In the treasury, very much on the lines of the Sherman bilL The silver men developed a difference in their ranks on the question of seigniorage. Senator Jones, of Ar kanus, while expressing thecopviction that silver coinage ahould prevail at the old ratio of 16 to 1, argued that it would be a waste of time to report a bill containing a provision of this char acter when there was no probability pf its becoming a law, and suggested that it would be wiser to report a bill which would give the government the seigniorage, as provided for in his bill Others of the sliver senators held out for free and unlimited coinage, and, while they conceded that no free coin age proposition was likely to become a law at this session, they said the same objection could be urged against any bill that would be reported, and that It would be wiser for the free coinage men to vote for their real convictions than to report a makeshift. APPROPRIATION BILLS IN TUB HKNATK. Wabiiixoton. Feb. 8. There must be some earlier and later sitting on the part of the senate it the appropriation bills are all to be passed by the 4th of March. Five days have been consumed in the consideration of the District of Columbia bill, the flratof the important budgets to come before tbe senate. As this measure contains 57 printed pages, this means a rate of about 11 pages a day. There are yet to follow the naval bill now pending in the house with 48 pages; the agricultural bill, with 30 pages, also in the house; the sundry civil bill, now in the senate committee with 107 pages; the Indian bill, not yet passed by the senate with 77 pages; the diplomatic bill, 28 pages, now on the senate calendar, and the legislative bill, juat reported to thehouae with 117 pages. This makes a total of 404 pages yet to be considered In the senate, not including the general deficiency bill, which has not yet been reported to the house and tbe length of which is, there fore, only to be conjectured. It Is a low estimate that it will make the to tal of pages at least 43a It the rate of 11 pa?es a day these measures will take the time of the senate for 41 working days after to-day. There are remain ing between now and adjournment on March 4 only S3 working days, so that on the basin of the calculation just had, there will be 209 pages of appropria tion bills unacted on when this con gress expires, or almost half of what now confronts the senate. to fokxfjt itnpatkntkd land.
