'William F.-Harrity, of Pennsylvania, has happened. He is no longer a mem ber of the National Democratic Com mittee, -lie was formally deposed Sat urday by Chairman Jones, of the na tional committee, and Col. James M. Guffey. of Pittsburg:, substituted as the member for Pennsylvania. It has-long: been a question whether any power -other than the delegates to a natiorial convention can change the personnel of a national committee, but j the question has never been aenniteiy fettled, and a precedent is established by the action of Chairman Jones. Sir. Harrity was selected by his State dele gation at Chicago, but it is well known that he neyernililiated with the regu lar organization after the adoption of the Chicago platform. On several occasions this action was urged upon Chairman Jones, but never until recently was the matter so per sistently pressed, and the chairman could no longer delay action. He reach ed the conclusion resulting in Sir. Har riry's deposition after a conference with Senator Gorman. Representative SIc Tiae. of Arlcansas. and other mem bers of the national committee with whom he was able to communicate. During the week the Senator also had a conference with State Chairman Gar man, of Pennsylvania: ex-Lieut. Gov. Chauncey F. Black. Col. Guffey, John B. Larkin. and , other Pennsylvania Domoc rat?, all of whom insisted that the best interests, of the party demand- I ed that Sir. Harrity be removed, and Col, Guffey substituted. As a result of this conference Chair- I man Jones decided to act promptly, and he is&ued a statement removing ' the gold Democrat and recognizing the choice or the regular organization. No- 1 tice.s of this action hae been sent to , tbe members of Ik committee, ano , they have been each requested to rec- ojrnize Col. Guffey as the member from Pennsylvania. as he has been recog nized by the chairman. From now on the new member will be recognized as Pennsylvania's representative on the rommittce. and all communications dealing with the business of the com mittee will be sent to him instead of SIi. Harrity. The new member of the national committee is not a stranger in "Wash ington. He lias had the influence of several of the leading men of the party in his fight, prominent among the"m be ing Senator "White, the recently elected chairman of the Congressional mittee. Senator "While and the other leaders have Jong thought that some one in thorough sympathy with the or ganization should be put In Sir. Har rity's place. The contest has extended over a period of several months, and silver Democrats will be pleased to know that It has been settled in so sat- i&iacuurj a. manner, inere win oe no j meeting of the national committee un- ii. just iinui iu me ih-al tuuieiiLiun, but the recognition of Col. Guffey by his associates and tk-e ignoring of Sir. Harrity ivill give him as good a stand ing as though lie liad been selected bv the delegates. There is little doubt but that thCacfion of Chairman Jones will be sustained. THASIWAYS OVEIt CIIH.KOOT. Openinir of STew Sli-thodv of Alaska Trnnsjiortntion. Tseoma. "Wash.. Jan. SO.

"Don't bother me," he said, to a re pot ter, who came in on a polar wave, "I'm engaged." "Do you think tomorrow will be a cold day?" ventured the newspaper emisary. with his eyes on the Sage, and his thoughts on a pair of yarn sockj, like mother used to knit. 'Nit," responded the Sage, as he con- flded a consignment of goods to a pneumatic tube, and pushed it along, "That." he continued, cheerfully, "is driven snow.

SOL'TII VS. NOKTII. 2ew England Cannot Compete With Her lUval-- Chatlotte, N. C, Jan. SO. Col. D. A- Tompkins , the millionaire cotton mill owner, who, perhaps is better in- formed on matters pertaining to this industry than any other Southern man, said today in reference to the present .New England situation: "The New England mills are suffer ing because they cannot sell their pro ducts at a profitable price. The South ern mills are underselling them, not because they like to sell goods cheap, but because, in order to sell at all, they are obliged to cut New England prices. This condition is not agreeable to the mills of either section. It makes the appearance that Southern competi tion is becoming ruinous to the New England mills. They and those of the South need better markets. There are some con- ditions here more favorable than in Xew England for the production of cheaper goods- Therefore if the com petition is reduced to that point where it is a question of survival the South ern mills can probably hold, out about as long as those In New England. Any improved condition which puts the manufacturers of cotton in the South ern States, however, on a better basis would also make a very satisfactory condition in Xew England. Tire trou ble is that the condition of cotton man ufacture in all parts of the United States is very much depressed."

The Polite Arrot Ills Alleged As- snilnutH The Slen Quiirrolcil Over a Wrestling Slutcli. Harry Ilickei-son. a steel'' ceiling maker, twenty years old, whdse home is at S'o. 120 IC street northwest, lies at the Emergency Hospital hi a semi conscious condition suffering from what the physicians fear are internal inju ries, which may result In his death. Hlckerson is the young man-who was taken from the "White Lot to -the hospi tal while unconscious early yesterday morning, haying been beaten and kick ed, it is alleged, by two men, John E. Shaw and William Weller, who are now locked up at S'o. 1 station. It developed yesterday that the two men, who claimed to have heard Hick erson's groans, and who went to the Emergency Hospital for help, were Ed ward SUnnis and a man named CHn delst, who were really with Hlckerson and his two assailants. Each of the five young men attend ed the performance at the Bijou The ater on Saturday night, and after the performance, it is said, went to Burke's saloon at Thirteenth-and-a-half and D streets, where they had drinks until the bar closed at midnight. A bitter quarrel arose over the merits of thd wrestlers at the Bijou, and, acting up on the suggestion of Weller. Shaw and Hickerson agreed to go to the White ,. iot and light, it is said that Shaw struck the first blow, which felled Hlckerson to the ground, whereupon Shaw is said to have kicked his an tagonist several times in the abdomen and choked him. The part which Wel ler took iii the affair is disputed, and he is held as an accessory. Upon learning of the case, Sergt Sloore, of the First precinct." located ! Shaw in the Third precinct, and tele phoned to Sergt. Keefe to arrest the man on the charge of serious assault. He was taken Into custody several hours later, and gave the names of his companions Slinnis and Weller who were arrested. It was" shown that Clindeist had nothing to do with the affair, except as a witness. He attempted to pre vent Shaw from injuring Hlckerson, and by so doing narrowly escaped se rious injury himself. Upon his Interference Shaw, it is alleged, became further enraged, and, drawing a knife made several desperate attacks upon Clindeist. cutting his clothing but doing no further injury. Slinnis then went to the hospital and Shaw and Weller made their escape Slinnis was finally released from cus tody. Shaw and Weller were held on the charge of suspicion, pending the result of Hiekerson's injuries. The physicians fear peritonitis. Si US. EDWARDS IS DIVORCED. She Is a GrnnddnuIiter of Gyn.

A Hamburg firm has just introduced a bicycle novelty in. the shape or a music )mx attachment, which finds its place in front of the steering gear and is set in "motion and kept going by the front wheel. Besides the amusement the music box is made to serve another end that is, the the regulation of speed. The music sounds melodious ouly while a speed or nine miles Qr less per hour is maintained: as soon as the speed is increased above that limit the sounds from the music cease to be agreeable to the ear and becomes inhar monious. The music box indicates, heref ore, fairly well when the exercise is becoming dan gerous to the rider's health. The tin box contaiuing the works Is about ten inches in diameter and f6ur Inches deep. The transmission is connected with the front wheel so as to allow for vibration or. con cussion. It can be started or stopped by means of a little lever attached near-the handle. The same 'transmission serves to actuate a cyclometer which works inde pendently of the music box and registers thq distance traveled..
