Wa-hi.vt<n. March 3.— lt may be said
to-night that the cabinet is complete as far
is it can be before the official announce

lonir lease of political power. Many gener

government have played an important part
in the public life of the state and nation.
His father, grandfather and L'n-at-nraud
fatber were in congress, ami James Bayard,
his father, only left the senate in 1869. He
was an able and very tine-looking man, aud
imparted to the Bon many of his phys
ical and mental gifts. Thomas F. Bayard's
mind turns toward the Southern view of pub
lic questions, and bis natural tendencies are
aristocratic. He ought to make a strong
diplomat and a popular one *ith those who
will be called npon to deal with bim upon
affairs of state.
wss born at V, iim,ugton, Del. Ho received
bin education at the Flushing school, which
was a h(:rh s•' i standing. He
had no education. He whs early
destined fur mercantile pursuits, but be pre

brought to the
and in time he grew to be one of his most
trusted lieutenauts. "As reticent as Dan
Manuing" has come to be a byword with
those who play the game of politics in New
York. One of Mr. Manning's characteristics
is his devotion to the trutliT When he does
commit himself to a statement it m.sy be re
lied upou as genuiue. Lucky indeed is the
newspaper man who can extract from him
anything more than a courteous refusal to
; talk about matter* political. The death of
President Pruyn made Mr. Manning presi
dent of the Commercial National bank,
accounted one of the most thrifty
banking Institutions In New York. Mr.
Manning is Interested in the city railroads
and in "local electric and telephone com
panies. It is no secret among his associates
that for a number of years he has been try
ing to be relieved from an active participa
! tion in politics.
Mr. Manning is a constaut attendant at
j St. Paul's Episcopal church. In figure he is
| of medium height given to great rotundity,
1 with a full round face without other adoru-
I ment thvi a black mustache. Mr. Manning
I has neve. Neld office. Like Thurlow Weed,
j he has always adhered to the theory that
could make himself more effective by aiding
in the distribution of offices among pap
hunters of the specks. He was married for
a second time immediately after the presi
dential election, to an accomplished lady uf
Mr. Manning was a member of the Dem
ocratic state convention of 1874 that nomi
nated Samuel J. Tildcn for governor and
was a delegate to the St. Louis convention of
1876 that nominated Mr. Tildenfor president.
He has been a member of the Democratic
state committee since 1876, was its secre
tary in I*7. and 18.y). and was elected chair
man iv lasl, which piace he now fills. He
was warmly interested in the nomination of
Mr. Cleveland for president at Chicago last
July, and it is generally conceded that he
6howed great skill in the convention as tie
head of the New Fork delegation.
Senator L. Q. C. Lamar, who will be called
to the Interior department, comes of a distin
guished Southern family. His ancestors have
taken a big baud In the government of the
country ever since the Declaration of Inde
nendeuce became a reality. He is one of
the very best representatives of Bouthern)feel
ing ami interest. If he were a worker like
Bayard he would-be a greater leader. He ba3
been in public life ever since he was of age,
and has a big brain and large experience.
He loves his ease, and is In many respects
an idealist. Full of sentiment, and capable
of expressing it in eloquent words, he has
iniide his mark by the fine temper of his in
bllect rather than its force. He is 01 years
of age, and has always lived in Mississippi,
as did his ancestors before him.

is altogether the most individual person

most that can be said for the other parties is
that they have prudence and experience.

maa. hat a solid one. The vigor of his
mind is always as prominent as the delicacy
of Mr. Lamar's. He is a natural lawyer,
something like the late Matt Carpenter, with
out his brilliancy. With a good, even bal
ance, fairly conservative ideas and a rugged
Americanism of the rule Southwestern type,
Mr. Garland is the most acceptable man to
the country iv ail the South for a cabinet
place. He has seen considerable public serv
ice and is not yet sixty years old, and is a
flne specimen of physical and intellectual
manhood. He looks his age, although his
thick, dark-brown hair has hardly yet begun
to show any signs of gray. He is tall, deep
chested, broad-shouldered, invaria'olv dresses
in black, and to this day adheres to the soft
slouch hat of Arkansas "life. He has a large
head. His complexion is swarthy and dark.
There is a solemn look upr>n his face in re

His forehead is broad and high. His eyes
are very black aud deep-set uuder heavily
shaded eyebrows. His nose is strong, straight
and nearly Grecian in its line. His mouth
is large and thin-ilpped. He has a very deep,
rich voice. He is considered one of the best
speakers in the senate. I v private life he is
fond of joking and delights iv chaifing his
associates. But he never introduces any
pleasantry into his public speeches. He
thinks that such lighetning of the burden of
argument has a tendency to detract from its
dignity and influence. He is a lawyer from
the crown of his head to the soles of his feet.
The study of law with him is a passion. He
can probably repeat more authorities by the
page and paragraph from his memory alone
than any lawyer who practices before the
supreme court. He is one of the most valued
members of the senate judiciary committee,

ahout politics and is more of a judge than a
partisan. He is a widower with a number
of children. lie has no fortune. He lives
in a very simple, democratic way, and will
make no attempt at appearing in the role of

With William C. Endicott at the head of

managed with conspicuous integrity and
fidelity, and with an eye single to the public
good. Whatever of reform may be necessary
will be undertaken by Judge Endicott fearless
ly. He will not hesitate to discountenance
doubtful proceedings of whatever source or
nature. Courteous, gentlemanly and frank,
he yet has determination ami firmness, and
will do right as he understands it on every

Washington, March 3. — The safe arrival
of President-elect Cleveland at an early hour
this morning gave great satisfaction, not be
cause any serious consequences were appre
hended, but because of afforded relief that
the presidential party had escaped
of travel aud accident and iniury of any
charracter. Alarmists spread the report that
cranks had threatened President Cleveland's
life, and the police authorities of New York
deemed their information sufficiently reliable
to warrant the closest surveillance of his
person and of suspecled individuals for the
past week or more. The police authorities of
Washington have been also on the gui vive for
the same length of time,and co-operated with
the New York and Albany officials in this be
half. Up toau early hour this morning when
the actual arrival of President-elect Cleve
land became known it was the opinion of
many shrewd persons that he had been
yesterday evening and quietly isolated in
private quarters. His declining to receive
any entertainment to-day from President
Arthur is commented upon as somewhat
anomalous, but the general opinion is that he
acted wisely and was influenced solely by
a desire not to occupy President Arthur's
time and attention at a period when the lat
ter was engrossed by immediate and pressing
business, further than to pay a visit of cere
mony. Altogether his demeanor to-day is
commended on all sides, and, notwithstand
ing the natural
his political adversaries refer to him in words
of kindness. A Republican leader said
to the Globe correspondent to-day that the
question was whether Cleveland would boss
, tbe job or the job boss him, and it looked
! very much as if the first proposition would
obtain. There is not much cabinet talk to
night, the general impression being that the
slate heretofore announced of Bayard, Man
ning, Lamar, Vilas, Garland, Endicott and
Whitney will not be broken. There are those
who believe that the pressure to displace
Endicott and Whitney, which Is very strong,
will probably bave some effect Western
Democratic leaders complain that their
and that New York ought not to be awarded
two cabinet portfolios. The theory is ad
vanced that for the presentat least no change
will be made, but after the administration is
fairly established certain dispositions prefer
ably in supreme court retirements as well as
other Important offices, will enable President
Cleveland to even up things satisfactory re
specting the cabinet. His immediate friends
clamor to have him un train muled until he
can master the situation.
Washington Ablaze With Eights and Wild
Willi Enthusiasm.
Washington, March 3. — The eve of in
auguration day presents a scene of extraor
dinary activity, of excitement and enthusi
asm. The fronts of all buildings on Penn
sylvania avenue are nearly concealed by
Sags, Miields and festoons of bunting so that
the street is almost literally walled in with
tri-colored drapery. The lanterns of street
lamp posts have been removed and gas flames
surrounded by colored globes. Electric lights
blaze on every corner. Along the pavements
of the brilliantly illuminated streets, under
the fluttering streamers and banners move
the crowds of inauguration visitors. Military
organizations in full uniform, headed by flne
bands and lighted by locomotive headlights
and ilaukers with torches, are constantly
passing back and forth through Pennsylvania
avenue snd Fift-enth street on their way to
or from the headquarters of the president
elect, and are greeted with cheers
as they wheel around the corners
between the throngs of spectators. Companies
of state militia in plain and serviceable blue
alternate with the picturesque squads of
zouaves in showy red and white, and New
York political clubs in long overcoats and
silk bats are followed by the Flambeau club
from Tooeka, Kan., dressed in spectral uni
forms of unbrokeu white and carrying pecul
iar pneumatic torches into whose boilow
shafts tbey blow at intervals so as to send up
h'.gh. slender tongues of naphtba-likc flame.
The Duckworth club of Cincinnati, present
ing s very creditable appearance, is cheered
a- it marches along in light overcoats, dark
pants and bigh white bats. Bands of
all kinds are to l>e heard in every
direction, four or five sometimes passing the
treasury department together, but in differ
ent directions and playing different airs.
Around the Arlington hotel, where 'he presi
dent-elect is staying, there bas been a great
throng of people all evening watching the
arriving snd departing troops, and listening
to tbe serenades wbicb the bands success
ively play under Mr. Cleveland's wrßJdows.
The wboie city, seems even at this late hour
of the evening to be astir and presents a
festive and holiday appearance wbich is as
striking as it is unusual.
Between the Ka*t and South for the Office*
— Jud-.'e Kndicott Interviewed.
Special to the Globe .
New York. March 3. — Judge Endicott of
Massachusetts, with his wife and son, ar
rived here last night, and left for Washing
ton this morning. He is a tall, heavy man
with a clear, pleasant, kindly fare and hL'h
forehead over wbich tbe hair droops. He
bas also a long mustache and goatee, bat
none of the squints of wild Western appear
ance. H- sail he preferred not to talk
on any political topic at present.
He expressed the opinion, however, that
New England is tending toward Democracy!
tbat Massachusetts will be a Democratic
state soon, aad possibly, also New Hamp
shire. The judge said be expected to remain
in Washington for sometime after the in
auguration from wbich his appointment to
tne cabinet is considered certain. He had
beard nothing about any meeting in
Washington to-night, neither had W. C.
Whitney. Ii any meeting is to be held there
It is of disappointed cabinet aspirant*, not
tbe successful ones. It is said that western
representatives sre raising a great cry scalp st
potting two men in the cabinet from New
York and giving only one to tbe West. They
Will effe«t nothing by that course except to
drive all the offices East. Mr. Cleveland is
the most stubborn man ever known in
office in a fight of this kind. He has
made up his mind tbat the party's
future demands an eastern and southern
combination. Nothing will stop him In
carrying that combination into operation.
It is his intention to give commissionership
in the departments to such states as he thinks
can be made Democratic. It is probable that
Connecticut, New Jersey, Indiana, New
Hampshire and Wisconsin will be large
sharers in minor patrouage but New York
will get the lions share.
How the Coming Men Feel.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, March 3.— There are some
Democratic congressmen who think that Mr.
Cleveland has not finally settled upon his
secretary of war, but among those who ought
to be best informed on the subject the opin
ion is that Judge Endicott has formally ac
cepted the place. Those who believe that the
war secretary has not been finally chosen
argue that if Cleveland goes to Massachusetts
for a cabinet official he would scarcely
pass by Gen. Collins to take Judge Endicott.
They point to the prominence Gen. Collins
attained in the last campaign, to services he
rendered the party and to the good effect his
selection would have on the Irish-American
voters, as reasons for taking him rather than
Endicott. Speaking of Gen. Collins to-d.ry,
a prominent New England Democrai
said that Collins' appointment
would be the strongest one in a
political sense that Cleveland could make.
The general sentiment of Democratic sena
tors to-night is that the cabinet has been
made up.
Senator Lamar's spirits were sent down to
zero to-day by the information, though not
authentic, that Gov. Lowry will not appoint
Gen. Waltham or Representative Barks
,dale, that he thinks he would make
political enemies no matter which man
he should appoint, and that the best way out
is for him to select a man who is not, an as

troubled countenance, as though he feels
that he may regret the step he is about to
take. Senator Garland apparently feels that
he is treading upon sure ground. He looks
as happy as if he had realized the dream of
his life.
Fun for Hendricks.
Special to the Globe.
Washington, March 3. — Nobody is getting
a higher degree of satisfaction out of the
inauguration bustle thau the. vice president
elect. Mr. Hendricks' reception was not
much in the way of an ovation, but about
the second day the Democratic patriots be
gan to warm towards him . His treatment was
all he could ask. When he went into the
senate chamber the senators greeted him cor
dially. A little later when he appeared on the
floor of the bouse the representatives gathered
around him ten deep to shake hands. Mrs.
Hendricks went over to New York on a
hurried mission of a feminine nature, but
her illustrious spouse has no occasion to com
plain of lonesomeness. After his return
from the capitol the doors of
his parlor were besieged almost
constantly until a late hour. Tho
new comers as fast as they washed up aud
got some supper wanted to see Tom Hen
dricks. They were let in by delegations.
The vice president shook hands, said a few
pleasant words, smiled at the hearty congrat
ulations that the Democracy had got there at
last, and then went through the performance
again. His manner was most charming.
The Crowd Continues to Grow.
Baltimore, March 3. — There was more
life here to-day than for a long time. Traius
from the east and west began to arrive early
and by noon the city was thronged with
strangers on their way to Washington. The
railroads are taxed to their full capacity, and
trains will be in motion all night to accom
modate the vast throng. Both roads from
Baltimore to Washington are double tracked
and trains will be run at full speed and far
enough apart to avoid accident.
To-night as the train conveying the
New York County Democracy emerged from
the west end of Union tunuel a shot was
lired at it from the wall of Green Mount
cemetery. The ball passed through a win
dow of the car and through the hat of one of
the passengers. The police were at hand,
but the assailant jumped down nearly twenty
feet into the cemetery grounds and escaped.
Late trains hrougbt considerable numbers
of voyagers back from Washington, unable
to get accommodations there for the night.
What the Inaugural Address Will Contain.
Special to the Globe.
New York, March 3. — Mr. Cleveland's
Inaugural address has been committed to
memory and will be delivered like a speech.
It will occupy about fifteen minutes in deliv
ery. It is Mr. Cleveland's purpose to Im
press on the people in his address that he in
tends, so far as lies In his power, to
bave an honest and honorable administration,
to reform the government in every branch
and to bring about a return to the purer and
better days of the government. His recom
mendations as to the suspension of silver
coinage will go even further than tbe letter
he wrote to Congressman Warner. With re
spect to the tariff he will advocate an honest
tariff revision that shall lop off tbe excres
cences of the present law and system, but he
will not depart in general terms from the
Chicago tariff plank. In one clause he will
favor a retention of the whisky
and tobacco tax. No little portion will be
devoted to calling attention to the condition
of tbe country, depression in business and
the idleness of labor and urging on the
country that the prospect of a revival of
every interest is conditional npon the sus
pension of silver coinage and the adoption
of his other vk-ws.
Mr. Manning when opportunity offers as
secretary of tbe treasury will advocate a pro
tective tariff policy. There is also a rumor
tbat be will ouly remain In the cabinet tem

Temporary Rates Made Under a New Agree,
ment to the Pacific.
Doings of Lines Terminating in the NortW

More Transcontinental Trouble.
Special to the Globe.
St. Locis, Mo., March 3. — The Missouri
Pacific, through its representative, Mr. Olds,
signified its intention of joining the Trans
continental association at the meeting of the
executive committee in Chicago. Some of
the Western roads are dissatisfied now, how
ever, and the committee is wrestling with
their difficulties. It is said that the Central
Pacific, which was not represented at the
Chicago meeting, objects to the rate made
from Chicago and St. Louis as terminal
points, which is a reduction of 5 per cent, on
the proportion from these points on the
through rate from New York. It is probable
that the commissionership difficulty will be
settled by mail or telegraph, as it would be
very difficult to bring the members of the
committee together again.
New Through Rates on California Busi
As no further headway could be made in
settling the affairs of the Transcontinental
association without the presence of a repre
sentative of the Central Pacific, the executive
committee which has been in session for the
last few days at the Grand Pacific hotel,
Chicago, has adjourned subject to the call of
the chairman. Mr. Faithora, assistant
to Mr. Midgley, is at Omaha, see
ing about the new arrangements for
making through rates from seaboard points
and all points in the East to the Pacific coast,
with Union Pacific officials. The new plan
is to make through rates from Chicago and
St. Louis instead of making them from sea
board towns; while between seaboard points
and Chicago aud St. Louis the regular rates
of the trunk lines are to obtain. As the
pro rata proportion of the trunk lines on Pa
cific coast business has been more than twice
as high as the regular rates, tbe through
rates by this arrangement are ma
terially reduced from seaboard points.
The roads in the Pacific Coast association
have agreed with the Transcontinental asso
ciation to make the through rate from Chi
cago 80 per cent, of the rate now in effect
from New York, instead of 85 per cent., as
heretofore. The Central refuses to make the
reduction and insists on applying the 85 per
cent, of the New York rate, which may upset
the arrangement again. Under the new plan,
which will remain for the present, rates from
Chicago to the Pacific coast will be as fol
lows: First class, §4 per 100 pounds: second
class, $3.20; third class, $2.40; fourth class,
$2.20; fifth class, $2; sixth class, $1. SO;
seventh class, $1.60; eighth ela^s, $1.40;
ninth class, $1.20; tenth class, $1.
