THE LONDON EXHIBIT.
The Appropriation to be a Quarter of a Million. M. M. ESTEE MUCH TOO MODEST. Not Merely a Mercantile Exhibit, but to Show the Beauties of the Golden State. 'Associated Press Dispatches to the Hkrald.l Sacramento, January 22.—The Com mittee of one hundred and ten appointed by the Slate Board of Trade to consider the proposition of making an exhibition of California products in London, held a meeting in this city to-day. M. M. Estee read a bill ho had pre pared, asking the Legislature to appropriate $100,000 for making the dis play. After a long discussion Estee was convinced that the sum asked for would be entirely insufficient, and it was almost unanimously resolved to ask the Legis lature for the original amount suggested —a quarter of a million dollars. David Lubin, of this city, explained that a purely commercial exhibition would not attract a passing notice. The exhibition must be mide up of ranre sentations of California scenery. This, combined with displays of products of the soil, would have the de sired effect of calling attention to the wonders of the Golden State. Immediately after adjournment, the General Committee and Executive Com mittee met and appointed the following to speak at the conference in the Assem bly "chamber this evening and explain the plan to the members of the Legis lature: Prof. Ililgard, D. Lubin, A. T. Hatch, R. B. Blowers, E. W. Jones, of Los Angeles, Dr. Obed Harvey, Mr. Coates, of Napa, Daniel Flint, ex-Mayor Plavter, of Oakland, and ('. B. Turrill, of San Diego. It was decided to have the Gov ernor appoint the Commissioners to London, instead of tho Legislature. Eugene Germain, of Los Angeles, acted as chairman of to-day's meeting, and C. B. Turrill, of San Diego, as secretary. Till: S'lAlli LEtiISIiATURE. The Uraiijccrm Invited to callfor nia—Sundry mils Advanced.

If: EST BE CALIFORNIA'S MAN. His Endorsement for a Cabinet Position Overwhelming-ly Strong, I Associated Press Disoatches to the Hkrald.l Indianapolir, January 22.—General Harrison had the usual large number of callers to-day. The sudden departure of J. S. 0 lark son, of lowa, for Washington yesterday is looked on with some interest here. A gentleman, well informed, politically, said to-night, that it had been settled for several weeks that either Senator Allison or Clarkson would go into the cabinet. Allison was offered the treasury portfolio several weeks ago, but pro tested that he preferred to remain in the Senate. An understanding was finally had that, if the President-elect could see his way clear to permit Allison to remain in the Senate, he would invite Clarkson to a seat in the Cabinet. The gentleman now believes matters have reached a point where a decision has been reached, and that Clarkson's trip East is the result, as he is vitally interested either way. The gentleman closed by predicting that within a short time it would appear that Allison was preparing to assume the Treasury portfolio. Very little has been heard here about California's Cabinet prospects, and not a single prominent Coaster has visited General Harrison since the election. It is learned, however, that Calitornians have been earnestly at work. They have two favorite candidates. Judge M\ M. Estee and Hon. John L. Swift, with Estee in the lead as regards endorsements and requests that Judge Estee be hon ored. The following petitions have been forwarded to the President-elect: From the State Central Committees of Cali fornia and Nevada; from the Republi can members of the Legislatures of Cali fornia and Nevada; from the Governors of both States; from all the Republican members of Congress from tbe Pacific coast; from the State Board of fra deof California, fro m the Chief Jus tice of California, and lastly from over ninety per cent, of the Republican county committees of California. From the unanimity and strength of these petitions those who are acquainted with the situa tion concede the probability of Judge Estee's appointment. His name is coupled with the Attorney-Generalship. Philadelphia, January 22. —Johu Wannamaker left here this morning for Indianapolis. A friend of the gentleman said to a reporter this evening that he went by invitation and not of his own volition. »ll\M ».;> i i CORtll'PriO*. Both Candidates for the Senate Equally Implicated. St. Paul, January 22. —Tho Senate considered the bribery matter in a secret session of two hours' stormy duration to-day, and a partial leport made to them comprised charges which Senator Buckman, in an eloquent speech, said "were made by men whose characters would not bear very close investigation." Senator Ward, another strong Sabin man, and a member of the investigating committee, announced that both Washburn and Sabin had been implicated in the charges made, and he would vote for neither. The substance of a partial report offered by the committee was that one man bad been offered a good Government po sition if he would vote for Sabin. Another claimed he had been offered $1,000 to vote for Washburn, while a third said the Washburn men gave him wine until he was so drunk he did not know whether he received any money or not. The Senate is in executive session again this evening. At a quarter before midnight the hear ing of the report was concluded, the doors opened, and the Senate proceeded to vote for a United States Senator. Senator Daniels nominated General W. D. Washburn. No nomination was made by the Democrats, and they refrained from voting. Several Senators made brief remarks about the alleged bribery. A ballot resulted, Washburn 24, L. M. Wilson 2, Knute Nelson 1. The vote waß completed at 12:15 and the Senate ad journed. WON ON A FOUL.. Cardiff and fell Finish With a ''Rough.aud-Tumblo." Minneapolis, January 22. —A fifteen round contest, with small gloves, Queens berry rules, between Patsy Cardiff, of Minneapolis, and Jim Fell, champion heavy weight of Michigan, came off this evening. In the first four rounds, Fell was on the aggressive and got in some heavy blows, although Cardiff claimed first blood in the second round. In the next three rounds honors were about even, but in the eighth Cardiff began to rush and did some effective work in that and the succeeding round. In the eleventh round Fell seemed weaker and his blows were not effective, while Car diff did some telling work. From this time it was apparent that Car diff had the best of it. The fifteenth round was rough-and-tumble, in which Fell tried hard to hold his own, even when forced rgainst the ropes. Finally tbe men began to fight savagely, clinching and wrestling in defiance of the referee's orders. Cardiff's friends claimed a foul, and the referee gave him the fight on that ground. Neither man was badly punished although Cardiff's condition waß the best. An English Forger Captured.
