/.There have been larger crowds In the
past at the White House New Year gath
erings, but few functions of the sort have
been more brilliant and In none have the
crowds been " better handled, with less
confusion or iess of feminine heartaches
and resentment for dainty toilets dis
arranged .in the crush. Beginning
.promptly at ila. m.. the ceremony waa
concluded at 1:15, at w*ilch time S3si
guests hqd passed down the line.
Mrs. McKinley waa present in spite of
her feeble health. She remained in the
Blue parlor only through the official sec
tion, of the programme, retiring then, aa
had been previously arranged. With the
flush of excitement on her usually pale
face ehe looked bright and happy as 6he,
with the President, led the Cabinet pro
cession down the corridor to the Blue
room. The brilliant lights reflected from
the crystal chandeliers overhead, the
twinkle of tiny electric globes through the
heavy draperies of Bmilax and the Jungle
of palms and foliage plants that walled
the red-carpeted corridor made an excel
lent etage setting for the official proces
sion as.lt moved down the stairs and
through to the Blue parlor, where the
receiving; party wa» about to take its
stand. Mis. McKinley bowed and smiled
to the little. crowd of favored spectators
who flliedihe end Of ; the corridor to wit
ness-the opening act of the day's cere
monies. As sEe turned into, the Blue room
she klesed the- -tips of. her white-gloved
fingers to some of the children who waved
their .hands to her : f rorri a point of vantage
near the door;
. The troublesome question of precedence
between the army and navy was settled in
favor of the former. General Miles lead-
Ing the military contingent, with Adjutant
General Corbin at his left Bide. ..After the.
army had ; . passed in review, • .Admiral

Th& diplomatic corpsj- which headed the.
list of guests, was as always the show featr
ure of the reception.: Lord Pauncefote,
the British Embaßsador and dean :of the
corps, led the way. The display of . uni?
forms was brilliant, the Turkish fez, the
gilded orders of Continental • powers,, the
lur-trlmmed tunics and high polished
boots of the Russians, the queers sage
green, gold encrusted uniforms of the Jap
anese and the ¦ ermine-trimmed silken
robts of the Korean and Chinese all com
bined to form. a picture of unusual brtl^
llancy. ¦ : " .'¦¦"•.¦¦•"•:¦. .':¦:¦. -'..:. -'••".•.:

A review of the whole winter calendar
up to date could hardly have found a day
br-:tc-r fltte-d for. the New. Year functions. 1
The snow that has grown a trifle grimy
during the past week was covered over
with -a fresh fall, scarcely, ah inch thick;
The broad swwp of the- White House
drive had been quickly cleared of this,
but the lawns w*re covered, with the
fresh, white mantle, and the bare' black
limbs of the trees were outlined In silver,
dust. The sun was bright, but the air
was crisp and frosty. At an early hour
the streets beyond the White House
grounds began to fill with the crowd that
surged back and forth, eager for a place
in the public line that was to follow the
reception of the various eections of the
day's pageant.
The decorations of the Executive Man-
Bicn were not so elaborate as they have
been on some former occasions, still there
was a profusion of palms, ferns, smllax,
holly and other greens everywhere
throughout the state dining-room, the
blue, red and green parlors and the east
room. The mantels were banked high
with foliage plants and the window re
cesses were .filled with tall, graceful palms
and plants. The green of the foliage was
relieved by scarlet poineettia and other
flowering plants. The light of the bril
liant winter day' was excluded, and the
rooms were flooded with electric lights
from thousands of tiny bulbs in the ceil
ings and the sparkling chandeliers add
ing to the brilliancy of the decorations.
The glittering gold- and silver trappings
of the members of the diplomatic corps
and the full-dress uniforms of. the army
and navy contrasted strongly with th*
modest black of the Jurists, statesmen
and civilian officials of the Government aa
they moved, through the mazy throng.
The President and Mrs. McKinley re
ceived in the Blue parlor,. assisted by the
members of the Cabinet and their wives,
and "behind the line" were about fifty of
the wives and daughters of Senators,
Representatives, prominent army and
r.:ivy officers and others high in the social
and official circle*.
The members of the Marine band. In
their red uniforms, were stationed at the
head of the* corridor opposite the state
dining-room, and throughout th« recep
tion played patriotic airs.

Building Totally Destroyed by Ure.
Tho alarm from box 8-t. shortly b«fora
midnight last evening, was for a fire at
the northeast corner of Hermann and Va-
lencia streets. A two-story frame build-
l"S. owned by E. L. Reese and occupied
on the lower fioor by J. W. WlnteTbot-
tom as a saloon, was totally destroyed.
The flra is said to have been caused . by
the carelessness of two your.gr men who
occupied a room on the second floor. It
ls thought they threw a: lighted cigarette
among some . loose papers and left th©
place. Their names could not be ascer-
tained, but the Fira Marshal will make

The line of naval officers which fol
lowed, headed by Admiral Dowey, was
much longer than that of the army. The
admiral's small,: well-knit figure was In
striking contrast to the large frame of
the venerable Rear Admiral Melville, the
famous Arctic explorer. They were fol
lowed by Rear Admirals Hlchborn and
Bradford and some of the fighting heroes,
among whom were "Fighting Bob" Ev

officers, of. the corps now in and around
Washington. Then came the officers: of
the District militia and the Naval Re
serves. Professor Alexander Graham Bell
and Professor Samuel P. Langley- of fly-
Ing machine fame led the Regents of the
Smithsonian Institution, who were fol
lowed by the heads of the various depart
ments, assistant secretaries, chiefs of bu

gion and Union Veterans. Then came the
veterans of the Spanish-American war,
about 200 in number. . • . ;.;.-.
The "Oldest Inhabitant Association" of
the District of Columbia was the last or
ganization in line.
. The general public was then admitted,
and for an hour and a half a constant
stream of humanity flowed through the
White House portals. Meantime practi
cally all the distingushed callers had de
parted and many of the ladies in receiv
ing had left. At 1:15 the last of the public
passed throtiph the parlors. In all 2354
persons attended the reception.
The Secretary of State and Mrs. Hay
entertained the members of the diplo
matic corps at breakfast at noon at their
handsome residence on Lafayette square

NEWPORT NEWS. Va., Jan. L— The
stories sent out from Washington Inti
mating that negotiations were on foot
looking to the sale of the shipyard hers
to the Government were wholly without
foundation. :G. 'E.. Miles, the magnate's
private secretary, speaking for Mr. Hunt
ington, to-day denied the report, branding
it as ridiculous. This rumor, Which haa
been started bafore, was doubtless colored
by the visit of a Congressional party, four
members of which are on the Naval Com
mittees of the Senate and House. Some
time ago when it was reported that Mr.
Huntlngton contemplated disposing of his
plant to an English tfrm he said that if ne
ever saw fit "to sell his yard the Lnlttd
States Government ought to be the pur-
It can be stated that there 1» nothing
whatever in the rumors. This will b« wel
come news to the local public, as everr
one realizes that should the shipyard pass
into the bands of the Government only
warships would be built here, and the
main support of the city would not be the
important plant that it is to-day, owned
by Collls P. Huntington.
Mr. Huntington declined to talS on
trusts when the subject was broached to
day. This afternoon he addressed tne stu
dent* at Hampton Normal Institute,
where many colored young men and wom
en and a number of Indians ar» being
educated- It is expected that the Hunt-
Ington party will remain here until
Wednesday or Thursday. Mrs. Hunting
ton and H. E. Huntington, besides Mr.
Miles, are with the magnate.

instance of a refusal on the part of a
steamship company to deport immlgrantß
found by the United.; States Immigration
Bureau to be. contract' laborers, occurred
here to-day- : " About two weeks ago Im
migration Inspector .Levy brought fifteen
Slavonians here from Mississippi, charged
with having been brought--. here on a
German L.loyd ship in violation of immi
gration laws. To-day he tendered them to
the captain of the steamship Roland of
that line and they were refused. War
rants were Issued for S. G. Spencer, agent
of the company, and for the captain. The
ship sailed without service of the warrant
on the captain, but Spencer was arrested.
Spencer .claimed the men bad not been
tendered to him. and If they were tend

office, the purser, waa obliged to decline
to receive them. • ¦: ..: ; .. .-:
Inspector Levy says the men were tend
ered to the oompany on December 13 by the
collector of customs and the company ac

for their board.
It is understood that the immigration
bureau has information of some 1500 al
leged contract laborers, which it purposes
Xo deport and that the steamship com
panies intend to resist the orders. Most
of these Immigrants came through Balti

Chairman Lockwood Outlines the
Aims of the Conference to Be
Held in Chicago.
CHICAGO, Jan. I.— Members of the ex
ecutive committee of the National Anti-
Trust Conference, to be held in Central
Music Hall on February 12, held a short
conference, to-day at the Sherman House.
M. L. Lockwood of Pennsylvania, chair
man of the committee, afterward issued
a statement in which he said:
Every day the anti-trust sentiment through
out the country ls becoming intensified and
everywhera the cry i» going up: "What can
be done to save the country from the oppres-
sion of the trusts T' The mission of th» con
ference is to answer this cry. To th» political
economists and statesmen of the conference,
rather than to the politicians, will the people
look for utterance which lead to their deliver
ance. ¦ '••¦¦•• . ¦'
¦ The: ax should be laid to the root of the tre«
of special privlleees. The plan is to treat the
causes. ¦ rather than the effect, to strike at
special ' privileges hardest and first. In gov
ernment ownership, only can railway favoritism
be rrevented. Government control under cor
porate, ownership has proved a failure. In or.
der to destroy the trusts we must take from
them the special advantages which have created
them and they will wither of their own weight
as they meet the energetic competitive capacity
of the. American people. ¦ ' •'.. . :
It Is the plan. to organize all who are op
. posed to. trusts, with the view of uniting the
friends of- freedom in every State, county and
school district, until that concentrated action
Is reached which alone can prove effective.
TAGOMA, Jan. I.— The most famous In
dian:', chief of Washington passed away
Saturday night! when "Old" Slgo died at
Port Washington. He was 105 years of
age, having been a contemporary of Chief
Seattle. '. During the Indian wars in. the
'50's he led a large body of Indians againat
the whites and took command aiter
Leschi, his. colleague, was captured and
hanged; He was a large powerful man
and ruled, with an iron hand until the
authority of the Indian agents superseded
his. For several' years, he has been blind
and unable to stand, finally dying of
senility. To his sagacity is largely due
the fact that the Western Washington
Indian reservations comprise the choicest
land; in the- State. Slgo was buried ; to
day. ' • ; -; '-*'¦ . _ -. i
