Her Guardian and Paul Xcuman Call on Secretary of State Gresham. Washington; March 13.— At 5:30 3'clock this afternoon President and Mrs. Cleveland accorded a special re ception to Princess Kaiulani, the meet ing taking place in the blue parlor. The princess was accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Davies, their daughter, and a lady friend. The call was entirely of a social nature and lasted probably a quar- j ter of an hour. The visitors were ' charmed with the cordiality of the re- } ception accorded them, the ladies being j captivated by the pleasing manners of I the w'.fa of the president, and the prin- ! eesa Bald subsequently that Mrs. Cleve- j land was tjig only lady that she ever I fell in love with. During tho day Mr. j Davies, unaccompanied by the princess j or any member of his family, called on Secretary Gresham. This visit, like that to the White house, was a purely social one. l'uul Neuman, the envoy of Queen Liliuokalani, also called on Secretary Gresham daring the afternoon.

Scbofield was a member of the commission that visited Hawaii many years ago, and Admiral Brown's last cjuise was to that country. Capt. Howisson is now at the Mare Island navy yard. He is said to be peculiarly fitted for the mission by reason of iiis service in Hawaii, and naval officers eein rally agree that he is one of the best equipped men in the service for the position. Dr. Mott Smith, the Ha waiian minister, does not regard the ap pointment of a commission with much tovor. "If a commission Is appointed, of course we will accept it." he said. "It can serve no good purpose that 1 can see. All possible information is at hand, and nothing new can be gleaned. In case the United States refuses to annex Hawaii, the provisional government, In my opinion, would struggle to maiutain the independence of the islands." No orders have been issued from the treasury department for the revenue cutter Thetis to prepare for a trip to Hawaii for the purpose of carrying a commission to be appointed by the pres ident, nor have the" postoftiee authori ties here issued orders for the detention of the steamship Australian from Wednesday till Friday, as repotted from San Francisco, in order that she might carry important advices to Uono 'lulu. FAINT PAUL, MINN., TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 14. 1893. ROACH FARES WELL. North Dakota's Senator Given the Chairmanship of a Committee. He Is Also Placed on Two Very Important Com mittees. Populists Treated as Demo crats in Making the As signments. Results of the Work of the Democratic C aucus Com mittee. Special to the Globe. Washington', March 13.— The com mittee appointed by the Democratic senatorial caucus to arrange the Demo cratic representation on the senate com mittees has practically completed its work, and will be ready to report on Wednesday. As predicted by the GLOBE, Senator It >aeh, of North Da kota, gets a chairmanship as well as a place on the committees on Indian affairs and irrigation, two committees of great Importance to his state. As chairman of the committee to investi gate the trespasses on Cherokee lands, Senator Roach will have a great deal to do, but it will be outside the Northwest. The fact that he was given the piace, however, indicates the standing he has already secured In the sen ate. In making up the Democratic en Is of the committee the caucus committee looked only to the views of the Members on the great living issue of the present, tiie tariff, and treated the three Populist senators as Djibo t-rats, giving two of them, Senators Kyle and Petfer, chairmanships, and all first-class committee appointments. Senator Kyle will ba chairman of the committee on education and labor, Sen ator if l;*r'.» Old Place, as well as a raembsr of thL* committees on Indian depredations and irrigation. Senator Petf jr will bj chairman of the committee to examine the several branches of the ch'il service, as wjII as a member of the committees on agri culture, claims, Immigration and the Mississippi river. Senator Allen, of i Nebraska, like Beckwith, ot Wyoming, "gets no chairmanship, but is on several of the best committees, notably Indian affairs and public lands. From this it will be seen that the three Populists havn been treated handsomely, eettin g the same representation as the Demo cratic members. Immediately after the adjournment of the senate the Deinociatie, caucus committee went into session for the pur pose of revising aud putting the finish ing touches to the list of committees, as : agreed upon at the meeting Saturday. j The report will be made to the caucus tomorrow mornins, the caucus having • been called for 11 o'clock.

ACCURATE UNCLE SAM. Several Offers of Gold Declined on Account of Light Weight. One Incident Showing How Par ticular the Govern* ment Is. Washington, March 13.- The treas ury department continues to receive of fers of gold from the West in exchange for small notes, for which there is a pressing and increased demand. Several of the offers of gold, after they had been made, had to be temporarily de clined, as it was tound that the gold was of light weight, and until those who offered it made up the deficiency In weight the government could not ac cept it. In this connection it is Inter esting to note the absolute accuracy which the government requires before it will receipt for lightweight coin. Only a short time ago n consignment of coin was received at the treas ury department from Sau Francisco. The gold came in heavy canvas bags and in an aggregate of a quarter of a million dollars of gold it was found that it was nine cents light in weight. The cashier of the treasury had to make good the deficiency of nine cents, but the bags themselves were sent to the assay office at Philadelphia, and at an expense of probably a hun dred times the amount of light weight, the bags were burned, the gold re covered from the bags by a smelting process and returned to tho cashier.who in the end lost nothing. The treasurj^department Is advised that no goid has been engaged from the New York subtrensury for shipment to morrow. The next day for gold ship ments is Friday, and no gold fs expected to be exported then. Customs receipts are increasing, and during the month of March it is anticipated that they will foot up £18,000,009. For the first ten days of this month the receipts at the port ot New York from customs aggre gated 14,206,000, as against $3,905,000 for the corresponding period last year.

Those who anticipated an early visit from gentle Spring were disappoihted yesterday morning to find that old Mr. Winter had postponed his departure for an indefinite period, and seemed to be so pleased with St. Paul that he would remain in the city for some time. Shortly atter midnight of Sunday the snow began falling In gentle particles. It quickly increased in force until the air was full of the Hakes, which began to cover the ground in wasteful profu sion. The street car men, who had gone home to their beds, were routed out, and the cars were" run all night long in order to keep the tracks in a condition for travel. It continued to snow at intervals up to a late hour last night, with the chances of an indefinate continuation. There was a fall of about four inches, and at the' office of the United States signal service it was stated that it would con tinue snowing all night.

Strenuous efforts were made to keep the street cars movmg, but It proved to be a hard task, and cars moved only at irregular intervals, and toward evening stopped entirely. Had the volume of snow been as great as during the storm of Feb. 27, trains would have had to stop running, but as it was traffic was not hampered to any extent between Stillwater and the cities. No reports have been received from the woods, but loggers fear that the storm was general, and, if so, will practically put a stop to all operations. Little Falls, Minn., March 13.— A severe snow storm began raging this morning, which has continued all day without the slightest sign of abating.

Bonton Denies the Storjr That He Visited the President and Still Has Hopes. Special to the Globe. Washington. March 13.— This morn ing some one knowing the high esteem in which Judge Bartlett Tripp. of South Dakota, is held by President Cleveland, started the report that tho judge had been decided upon for commissioner of the general land office. As the rumor was passed around it gradually assumed the form that the president had an nounced the selection of Tripp to Col. Ben ton, of North Dakota. As a matter of fact. Col. Benton did not see Mr. Cleveland today. Judge Tripp is not in the city, and his friends say that he is not a candidate for commissioner of the land office, and that the only office he would consider is that of solicitor general.
