ASKED TO EXPLAIN.
Senators Ask Cleveland Ques
tions About His Ha
A Move Not Looked For-The Hawalian
Question Opened un
WASniw TONw. Dec. 12.- In the Senate
today the unexpected happened and
the expected failed to materialize. The
expected political debate on the federal
election laws appeal was averted by Hill
acquiescing in the suggestion of Hoar
that the bill should be referred to the
committee on privileges and elections.
On the other hand, no one expected a
debate on the Hawaiian question until
the resolution calling for information by
the Senate last week hod been complied
with by the executive. Today Hoar sub
mitted another resolution calling on the
president for specific answers to ques.
tions which literally complied with
would lay before the Senate and country
the history of the actions of the present
administration in the Hawaiian matter.
After a lively debste between the author
of the resolution and Itay. the resolution
went over until tomorrow.
The resolution is as follows: -"That
the Ipresident be requested to inform the
Senalte, if. in his opinion it be not in
consistent aith public interest, whether
any person whose nalme has not been
submitted to the Senate for its advice
and consent. and if so,. what peasen. has
been aplpointed since March 4 18l3. to
represent the United States in the Ha
wailan islands and whether such person
has [ein accredited to the president of
thie executive and advisory council of
the Hawaiian islands and whether such
s.ersan has isen presented to the head
of the government of the Hlawaiian is
lands. and whether any andi if so what,
authority has been given to such person
touching the relation of this government
to the then existing government of the
ilawaiian islands and the protection of
American citizens therein. and whether
any discretion or power has been comn
imitted to such person to determine
when the naval force of the United
State-s should be landed therein or with.
i:rawn therefrom. and whether any au
thoirity had Isen committed to such
Sperson tio use physical force in the terri
tory of said government or to land an
arnmedl force there: andi whether such
i person had been authorizedorhas in fact
corresponded in regard to the public af
fairs of the government of the Hawaiian
islands with any private person, news
paper or any otherperisodical, or has been
authorized to or has in fact undertaken
to receive in said Htawaiiali islands the
testimoniy of any private person in re
gard to the lawful and existing govern
ment there or the circumnstances under
which said existing government was es
tablished. or any other matters relating
to the public affairs thereof. and if any
such appointment or authority has been
made or given, further to inform the
Senate whether the same was made or
given at the time when the senate was
in any session or has continued in force
during any session of the Senate or of
congress or any part thereof. and fur
ther. whether such appointment or au
thority was communicated to the Senate
during any session thereof, and further,
whether any person has accepted or un
dertaken to accept the oflefice of com.
missioner or public minister witb powers
aforesaid or any of them, or has under
taken in any correspondence with the
government of Hawaii or with any pri.
vate person, to describe himself as comn
missioner of the United States.

"The next train for Chestnut Hill
leaves at 5:17-17 minutes after 5. Train
now ready on track No. 5. Track No. 5

Those were the words of the guard.
and they rang through the waiting room
in Boston with penetrating distinctness.
As soon as he had uttered them a fair
young woman rushed up to him and said:
"Is the train for Chestnut Hill ready
yet? And what time does it leave?'

Proteetiag Vegetables In Winter.
It does not seem to be generally known
that light in the winter time is the chief
agent in the destruction of vegetables
otherwise hardy, and especially light
shining brightly on the plant when
trozen. A cabbage or turnip that is ex
posed to the light rots readily, but will
keep perfectly sound if but slightly cov
ered with earth. This principle should be
remembered when collecting vegetables
together in large masses for protection.
It is often customary to cover such
sets of vegetables with some light ma
terial, such as leaves, hay or straw, the
result of which generally is simply to
form a harbor for mice, which are much
more destructive than the frost itself.
Water has, of course, to be excluded,
and if the vegetable plants are set close
ly together and covered with boards to
keep out the r;~in, it is generally all that
is required. Water must be excluded,
or else rotting may result. For this pur
pose it is good practice to invert vege
tables. The cabbage especially must re.
ceive this attention. They are almost
always inverted when placed together
under boards or covers for protection,
and, in fact, where no covering at all is
used they will keep ..srfectly well when
"Jim Hill's House."
Every visitor to St. Paul who has seen
the big red sandstone pile familiarly
known throughout the American occi
dent as "Jimu Hill's house"-and statis
tics are not at hand to show the number
of St. Paul's visitors who have not seen
it-will be interested in the bit of do
mestic gossip that 20 servants and one
housekeeper are needed to keep each floor
of the enormous dwelling in order. There
is a magnificetnt Minneapolis mansion
that boasts. it is said. 17 servants and a
housekeeler, but this retinue, St. Paul is
proud to prove, is for the entire estab
lishment, while Mr. Hill's 21 are the
equipment fur his every floor. Although
of such gigantic proportions, the Hill
isouse is most beautiful as well, and its
situation upon that stateliest of sites, St.
Anthony's hill. makes it one of the choic
est as well as one of the costliest dwell
ings in this country.-New York Times.

have found just such a friend in Dr.
King's New Discovery for consumption,

derfnl curative powers in all diseases of
