It was a huusry looklnc aflsemblatre
that boarded tbe special Santa F
train bound for Leavenworth yesterday
it was tbe occasipn of the celebra
tion of the election of Luclen Baker of
Leavenworth to tbe United Slates
senate, and the legislature of Kansas
was going prepared to make the most
of It.
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. , . .
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-
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

A half dozen different hotels were
the guests assigned to and they were
all on hand at supper. It was the pro

too narrow.

There were a iooJ many diversions
during tbe supper
The most popular contributor to the
feast, however, was a certain Mr.

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.
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.) ; '

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
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

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

of John James Ingalls, ' Old Glorv,"

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.
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.
