By the Associated rrcss.
Washington, Jan. 29.—The body of
the late ex-Secretary Blame was re
moved this evening to the parlor on the
north aide of the second floor of the
residence. During the afternoon and
evening a number of friends called and
took a last look upon the face of the de
parted statesman. The expression of
the face is peacefu' and the lineaments
of the well-known countenance showed
few traceß of the ravages of the disease
that carried him off. The casket is
almost buried under a mass of floral
tributes, many of them received from a
distance. It lies in the room where the
first prayers of the funeral services will
be said by Rev. Dr. Hamlin of the
church of the Covenant at 11 o'clock to
Notwithstanding the fact that the
funeral will be private, in one respect
the services will be as truly national in
their representative character as if a
president was being buried. The state
of Maine will send a delegation of 14,
headed by General Cleeves; Massa
chusetts will have a delegation of five
members; the Union League club of
New York will send 25 members to rep

League club of Philadelphia, 20. From
various other pointy of Pennsylvania
will come several delegations. Alto
gether 100 or more of these representa

to the number of 05 have notified the
family of their intention to be present
from various parts of the country.
The services at the church, as well aB
at the house, will be Btrictly privivt"
and no one will be admitted who has
not received an invitation. The family

BURCHARD'S THREE R'S.

New York, Jan. 29.—At Calvary Bap
tist church this evening Rev. Dr. Mo-
Arthur, in the course of an address on
Blame, referred to the Burchard Rum,
Romanism and Rebellion incident, Bay
ing many thought Burchard deliberate
ly uttered the words with the intent to
ir.jure Mr. Blame's cause. McArthur
said nothing was farther from the truth.
Burchard did not know, up to five min
utes before, that he was to speak.
It had been arranged that Dr.
Armitage shonld speak, but at the last
minute the committee waß notified he
had been detained in Philadelphia, and
Burchard was called upon.
"As the ill-chosen wordß fell trem
blingly from his lips," said McArthur,
"I watched Mr. Blame, but be seemed
absorbed in deep thought and not to
notice them, though he must have been
the iiret to appreciate their importance."
A BLAINE MONUMENT.
Tho Chicago Blame Club Takee the In

Chicago, Jan. 29 —At a meeting of
the Chicago Blame club, last night, ap
propriate resolutions with reference to
Mr. Blame were adopted, and a commit
tee appointed to co-operate with the
committees of various political and so
cial duos of the city in calling a memo
rial meeting. It was also decided to
take s'eps toward the collection of fund-i
for Bite erection of a Blame monument
in Chicago. During the meeting one of
the members who was intimately at;
quain*ed with the dead statesman read
au interesting letter received from him
several weeks before the last election.
In it, referring to the question asked,
Mr. Blame said that since the death of

Nhw York, Jan. 29.—The following
was given out tonight by J. O. Green
hut, president of the Distillers and Cat-'
tie Feeding company:
To stockholders of the Distilling and
Cattle Feeding company and holders of
its rebate vouchers: As minora pub
lished in the morning papers might
have a tendency to cause you to doubt
the ability of this company to pay its
rebate vouchers, the directors take this
occasion to say rebates will ba
paid as promptly in the future as they
have been in the past, and the company
holds in cash assets an amount far in
excess of what is necessary to pay every
obligation. So far as the present ques
tion of dividends is concerned, the di
rectors would say it was notdiscussed at
the meeting Saturday, and would add
there is no reason to doubt that the
business of the company will be con
ducted as satisfactorily in the future as
in the past.

ONLY TWO MEM ISKKS SELECTED SO
FAR AS KNOWN.
Carlisle and Lamont Are the Only
Fixed Members—Bayard Has Not
Lakkwood, N. J., Jan. 29.—1t was
learned today that Cleveland has filled
only two positions of his cabinet with
certainty, Carlisle for the treasury and
Lamont for the navy. It was under
stood here last week that Bayard had
accepted the state portfolio, but it now
seems that the report was premature.
From oue in close tonch with Cleve
land, it ww) learned •.»»•. the president
elect would probably select his former
partner, Wilson S. Bissel of Buf
falo, for the attorney generalship.
Among others who it is said are
being considered for cabinet positions
by Mr. Cleveland are Governor Gray
of Indiana, Senator Morgan of Alabama,
(rovernor Russell of Massachusetts,
Hoke Smith of Georgia, Patrick Collins
of Massachusetts and Don M.Dickinson.
In an interview today Cleveland,
paid: "The date is now at hand when
I must have more time to myself. Since
the election most of my time has been
devoted to interwiews, which is not un
pleasant and not unprofitable, but
other things are now pending which
require my uninterrupted considera
tion. Say for me through the press: I
shall be at mv office in New York every
day, with perhapß oneexcupion, during
the week commencing January SO, and
alter February 1 I shall remain at Lake
wood, where I hope to be undisturbed
iv work which will imperatively de
mand my attention. I also especially
desire that from now until the 4th of
Vlarch letters be addressed me at the
Mills building, New York."
The Senate About to Dispose of the
Anil-ttjjtt- n BUI.
Washington, Jan. 2!).—The most nota
ble event of the week in congress will
probably be the disposition of the anti
option bill in the senate. By agreement
the dual vote upon the bill will be taken
at 2 o'clock Tuesday. It will then in all
probability be sent back to the house
with its many amendments. The first
two regular appropiiation bills are now
on the calendar of the senate, and it is
the expectation of the managers also to
call up the Cullom bill making amend
mentH to the interstate commerce law.
The house leaders intend to keep at
work on appropriation bills, to the ex
clusion of all other business.
Practically the whole of Saturday's
session of the senate waß spent
behind closed doors in executive
session, laßting from 12:40 to
4:1)0, when the senate adjourned until 2
o'clock Monday, the chauge of hour be
ing to allow the senators an ooportunity
to attend Blame's funeral. In the
morning the army appropriation bill
was reported from the committee on ap
prooriations and placed on the calen
dar. This is the fitßt general appropri

Senator Carey save notice of two
amendments which he intended to offer
to the house bill .providing for the ad
mission of New Mexico into the union.
Carey's first amendment strikes out all
after the enactment clause of the New
Mexico bill and substitutes an omnibus
bill admitting the territories of New
Mexico, Utah, Ar zona and Oklahoma
The state of Oklahoma is made identical
with Indian territory, but it is provided
that nothing in the act shall
be construed to impair the rights of per
sons and property now pertaining to the
Indians of the territory, so long as sucti
remain unextinguished by an agreement
between the Indians and the United
States. Carey's second amendment is
identical with the first, save it oinit

By the Associated Press.
Pittsburg, Pa., Jan. 29.—For the first
time since his return from Europe An
drew Carnegie consented to talk in re
gard to the Homestead affair and spoke
freely this afternoon to an Associated
Preßß correspondent. He said he de
sired to make one point clear at the be
ginning. Four years ago he retired
from active business and no considera
tion in the world would induce him to
return to it. A great error of Americans
is that they endure the harassing cares
incident to business until they break
down when they should be in their
prime. He believed in retiring and giv
ing younger men a chance. He had
sold portions of his interests and
was gradually Belling more to Buch
young men in their service as his part
ners find possessed of ability. He was
not an officer in the company, but only
a shareholder, and to the numerous ap
peals he received urging him to give
instructions in regard to the recent
trouble, he says he tad no power to in
struct anybody connected with the com
pany. Tho officers were elected for a
year, and no one could interfere with
them. Even at the next election, if he
desired to make a change, he would be
powerless to do bo, as he is
sure he could not find one
shareholder that would not vote and
stand by the present officials.
"I elect to retain my capital in the
manufacturing business I have helped
to build up," said Mr. Carnegie, "be
cause I have great pride in it.and for the
further reason that my capital is thus
made a direct employer of labor; it fur
nishes" many men with steady work at

come to me beyond that required for
living expenses it has been devoted to
public uses. I have hoarded none and
never shall. Much has been said about
my fortune; I have plenty only if the
works in Pittsburg are prosperous. Un
less they are, I have nothing, and that in
how I elect to stand. I take chancss with

Mr. Carnegie eulogized Mr. Frick in
the highest manner, saying his four
years' management stamps him as one
of the foremost managers in the wor d,
and he (Carnegie) would not exchange
him for any other manager he knows. A

who wished to do what is fair and right

violent workmen, be does not like, and
these will not thrive with bim.

the strike at the Brooks locomotive
works was so serious as to warrant call

Dunkirk this morning. There is intense
excitement here tonight and trouble of
a serious character is anticipated. The
Brooks people evidently intend to bring

Dunkirk, N. V., Jan. 29.—The strike
which began a month ago waß caused
by the riveters in the boiler department
refusing to work under certain contract
ors, alleging inhuman treatment. The
lack of riveters made it necessary to lay
off men in the other departments and
now about 600 men are out of employ
ment. The Brooks people engaged
Philadelphia men to take the strikers'
places and brought them her» yesterday
by special train. Yesterday President
I Unman received information that
threats had been made againet the
works and new employes and the pro
tection of Sheriff Jenner was asked.
That official at once appealed to General
Doyle and troops are being held ready

Chicago, Jan. 29.—-There were lively
times at the opening of the board of
trade Saturday. Wheat broke 2 cents,
attributed to a queer cause. John
Cudahy contracted a severe cold, which
he feared would develop into pneu
monia, so he decided to protect hiß
interest in wheat by buying puts
against it to the amount of several
million bushels. This was done on the
cnrb yesterday afternoon, and caused a
break at the opening today. This
morning Cudahy was reported much
better, and was a buyer of wheat. The
day closed yesterday at 78%0, opened at
77% c, declined to 78%0 under, general
and panicky selling, but the santiment
then changed, and the price rallied to
77% c. Thereafter the market ruled
irregular and easier, closing weak and

CHIEF TOPIC OF THE DAY.
The Hawaiian Revolt Absorbs
All Interest. I
Opinions Freely Expressed on
the Subject I
Annexation Sentiment Is Bampant
San Francisco Merchants Heartily Ist
Favor of It—John Ball Objects*
American Ships Dispatched
By the Associa ted Press.
Washington, Jan. 29.—The Hawaiian
revolution has been the absorbing topic
of discussion all day. In the face of the
general protest stated to have been Bent
by the deposed Queen declaring aha
yielded only to the superior force of the
United States and appealing to the
United States to reverse its decision an-'
reinstate her in authority, it woa ex
pected that the specially chartered
steamer which brought the news of the
revolution would also bring a dispatch
from Minister Stevens or Consul-Gen
eral Severance. It was also expected
that the commander of the Boston
would transmit to the navy department
some detailed report of his vigorous
action, but nothing has been received.
The inference is that detailed reports
from these officers are on the way by
sentiments freely expbksskd.
In the meantime some of'the mem
bers of the committee on foreign rela
tions, before whom the matter will
eventually come, are expressing their
sentiments with remarkable freedom.
Senator Morgan makes no secret of his
desire to acquiesce in the request of the
committee and annex the islands. More
significant, even, than this, however, is
the statement that Senator Sherman,
chairman of the senate committee on
foreign relations, in the course of the
executive session yesterday, spoke to
the same purport.
Senator Butler of South Carolina, who
is also a member of the same committee,
said to a reporter: "Of course there
can be no question of the great desira;
bility of the jslands as ft naval Btation. n r
- .y.'V**..-J i,B . y w.*»
. .Tjtefia and Louisiana, it,*Wiil be necea
, sary for congress to pass a regular act of
annexation as was the case with the re
public of Texas. Hawaii would then be
made a territory, but not, I imagine,
with a regular territorial government."
JUDGE CHU'MAN'S REMARKS.
Judge Chipman of Michigan, a prom
inent member of the house committee
on foreign affairs, openly favors annexa
tion. "I favored it in the Fifty-first
congressi" he said, "in a report and
speech .upon the Hawaiian table. I
ccrußijef it not only poesible, but highly
desirable. The Sandwich islands are
exti'ejtnelr fertile. The intelligent
i among its people earnestly favor union,
with the United States. As a naval
station and in point of commercial ad
vantages in the Pacific, they are vital to
us. We would need them in war and
we need them in peace. Their posses
sion would go far toward enabling
us to control the sugar situation.
Of course a contest with Eugland could
not be avoided, but that should not
effect the matter one way or the other.
This country will never amount to any
thing more than a eecond-class power
so long as it whisks around the corner
when it sees a foeman approaching.
England takes whatever she wants,
whatever it may be. Ido not believe
in a bullying policy, but America must
known its rights and maintain them at
all hazards. I hope to see the limits
of this country extend northward to
the Arctic, regions. I hope to see it
with a Btrong defensive and offensive
Btation in the West Indies, be it Cuba
or another of those islands, and one of
similar strength and usefulness in the
Pacific. The time has come when the
government of the United States must
DIPLOMATS AFRAID TO TALK.
The po6Bible seriousness of the mat
ter, as involving relations with England,
made the subject one upon which no
member of the diplomatic corps in this
city felt at liberty to speak today.
BLAINE FAVORED ANNEXATION.
An interesting incident as possibly
showing Blame's attitude toward the
subject of annexation of the Hawaiian
islands is recalled at this time. When
the Pan-American congress met in Oc
tober, 1889, or about that time, Blame
discovered that Hawaii had not been in
