Ihe Official Family Will Have Pri
vate Dinners at Their Several
Homes — The White House
Christmas : Tree Lighted Last
; : ; Evening Mrs. Cleveland Dis
f. tributes the Gifts.
Washington, Dec. 23.— Christmas
will be spent very quietly at the White
house, and there will be. no guests at
dinner on that day. The members of
the cabinet will spend Christmas quietly
at their own homes. They are all dis
posed to make it a quiet, comfortable
day in the family -circle. Secretary and
Mrs. Gresham will dine at the Arling
ton, and will have their sons with them.
Secretary, and' Mrs. Carlisle are now
surrounded with their entire family
circle. William Carlisle aud family
arrived some days ago from Chicago.
The secretary of war and Mrs. Latnont
will have a Christmas tree for their
,a yungest child, and will have Miss
«^jMiders with them. The postmaster
general and Mrs. Bissell intend to have
a quiet home day, and there will be no
guests. The secretary of agriculture
ana Miss Morton are expecting a visit
from the married sons of Mr. Morton,
who hope to be here with their
families for the Christmas dinner.
Secretary Herbert has not been
keeping house for several years,
and for that reason Christmas
will be doubly grateful in his own home
surrounded by his children. The family
circle will include Mr. and Mrs. Micou,
Miss Buell and the secretary's fourteen
year-old son, who is home from school.
Mrs. Olney has gone to New England
to spend Christmas with her married
daughter, where she will be joined by
the attorney general, The vice presi
dent and Mrs. Stevenson, with their
daughters and Mrs. Stevenson's sister,
Mrs. Scott, and the Misses Scott, will
dine together at the Norniandie, making
a family party. The White house
Christmas tree was lighted this after
noon. All the cabinet babies and their
mothers who are in the city were pres
ent to see the grand illumination. The
tree was attended by four men, who as
sisted Mrs. Cleveland in distributing
the gifts. These .was 'one. 'for each child
in the cabinet circle,* and the children
nearly went wild over : the beauties of
the tree. The president went in for a
while to watch the fun and enjoy the
Children's pleasure in the' happy event.
Another . Latin-American Civil
War Imminent.
Washington, Dec. 23.— The siati
department today received a dispatch
indicating that another one of the Latin-
American countries is likely to be em
broiled in civil war. The dispatch,
which was from Pierce M. B. Young,
the United States minister to Honduras
and Guatemala, read as follows: "The
Hondurian revolutionists are advancing
fiom Nicaragua. The Hondurian army
is in motion to meet the revolutionists."
American interests doubtless will be
protected in the event of the trouble.
The Alliance has been at La Libertad,
aud today the Ranger joined her at
that port.
In Its Clerkship 'Fight,. With the
'■'_yi. ........ .;...., House. .-.'-.
Washington, Dec. 23.— final ac
ceptance by the house of representa
tives of the senate amendment to the
urgent deficiency bill, providing for the
payment of salaries of the senate per
diem clerks for the recess of the Fifty
first congress probably marks the close
of a contest between the two branches
of congress which dates back to a time
far beyond the employment of these
clerks for this work, and has been an
interesting page of history of the two
houses. It began when in 1883, upon a
motion of Senator Butler, the senate
voted to employ private secretaries for
senators who were not chairmen of
committees. At that time neither -en
ators nor members who were not heads
of committees were permitted to have
clerks for their assistance in conducting
the routine of their political duties, un
less they paid them out of tneir own
pockets, and. although the need of such
assistance had been frequently
commented upon in both houses,
neither body found itself will
• 11!.' to vote itself aid until the
. orly-eighth congress, when the senate
ook the initiative. The house did not
oliow suit for ten years, nor did it ac
cept the innovation in a kindly spirit,
a nd at once Pecan a war upon the clerks 1
which has continued until the present
time. The subject has been often dis
cussed in the proceedings in the house,
and that body has uniformly, except in
one session of the Fifty-first congress,
refused to include in the legislative bill
any appropriations for the clerks of
■senators. The senate never failed to
amend the bill so as to provide for the
pay of the clerks, but the amendment
was very seldom accepted by the house
without vigorous comment and more or
less parleying with the senate. The
clerks were only paid for the time that
congress was in session, and it was after
the long session of ' the Fifty-first con
gress In 1890, when there were only two
months' time left between the close of
one session and the opening of the next,
that the senators, finding a irreat deal of
accumulated business on their hands,
resolved to retain the services of the
clerks during the recess. The house
objected, and the action of the senate in
the matter had tiie effect of vine
stimulus to the conflict, which the house
had shown some disposition to drop by

providing for session pay in that con
gress, without waiting for the action of
the senate. Every year since the sen
ate has put the item on some appropria
tion bills sent over front the house, and
it has been just as regularly rejected by
the house until the present "session,
when the senate, refusing absolutely to
back down, the house, after tying up an
appropriation bill for : two months, fin
ally decided. The senate has always
taken the ground that the house has no
right to interfere with the senate's man
agement of its affairs, and to this view
tne house apparently . yielded, after a
struggle which has continued for a^ de
cade at the expense of much lime of
both senators and members, and- of
much cost for the printing of speeches
and of delay in legislation. Probably
the reason for the - surrender of, the
house is found In the fact that that body
has found the example the senate in
employing clerks for individual mem
bers worthy of initiation,-* and* now
employs such clerks itself. This change
in the house was not made until the
close of the last congress, but since it
took place it has. been noticeable that
the house has shown itself „ more liber
ally inclined to tolerate .the senators'
clerks. It is how admitted by a majority
of the members that the business of
senators and members is such that it is
almost impossible to conduct its without
assistance, and the .war seems to have
reached a filial termination..

Committee Likely to. Reach.an
Agreement. "' '.'.'. ,
Washington, Dec. 23.— The commit
tee on banking and currency, the most
discordant committee in the house, as
one of its members declares It 'to be, will
be very likely to reach some sort of ah
agreement early after ... adjournment.
Members outside ot the committee room
seem to have agreed upon a plan which
they could not do in committee. It' is :
now proposed to report adversely the*
bill introduced by Representative Cox,
ot Tennessee, and to authorize Mr." Cox
to submit a minority report, which would
give him charge ot the bill. on the floor
of the house. This is said to the only
way the committee can get -out : of the
present tangle. The state bank repeal
question has the right, of way, and no
other business can be considered while
it is undisposed of. The plan' of report
ing it adversely seems to be tin. only
method of getting it out of the way. It
is understood that both factions would
be willing to have it discussed on the:
floor, the opponents believing that it
would be defeated, while its friend^
claim that the Democratic platform
would not be fulfilled unless' it is
passed. •-:.'<;.*.•...

The Figures Show Them Consid
erably Short. r
Washington, Dec. 23. -Government
receipts for this month up to date have
been in round numbers $5,000,000 less
than the expenditures.the figures being:
Receipts, $21,050,000 and the expend
tures $26,243,0_*0, of which $11,939,000
has been on account of pensions. Tak
ing these figures as a basis of calcula
tion, the excess of expenditures over
receipts for the month will be between
86,000,000 and $7,000,000, and as the de
ficiency in the revenues for the first
five months of the fiscal year was
approximately .-30,000,000, the indica
tions are that the first half of the
year will show a deficiency of
between $30,000,000 and $37,000,000.
It. is not anticipated by treasury officials,
however, that the next six months will
make such a showing. Secretary Car
lisle in his report estimates a probable
deficiency at the close of the year of
$28,000,000. Iv making this estimate the
secretary assumed that the worst effects
of the recent financial disturbances and
consequent business depression have
been realized, and that the conditions
will be much more favorable hereafter
for the collection of an adequate reve
nue for the support of the government.
He also said in his report that it could
scarcely be expected that the receipts
during the remainder of the fiscal year
would exceed the expenditures to such
an extent as to prevent a very consid
erable deficiency. The available cash
in the treasury today is 190,487,288, of
which $52. 422.104 the net gold reserve.
On the Ist. inst. the available balance
was $95,199,010. _ '. . " "-"..-_.;
To Be Investigated at an Early
Washington, Dec. 23.— indica
tions at present are that the government
of the United States will consent to*
allow the Chilian claims "commission to
act upon the claim of the Chilian gov
ernment for damages for the seizure of
the Rata during the Chilian civil war.
There is a difficulty in the way, how
ever, which is due to the fact that the
treaty under which the commission was
created did not provide for the adjust
ment of claims held by one government
against the other by the commission, but
only for the consideration of claims held
by citizens of one country against the
government of the other. The attor
neys of the Chilian government, how
ever, are urging, the propriety of the
consideration of the ltath claim on "the"
ground that its allowance will aid in re
storing the comity between the two na
tions, which was somewhat disturbed
by the incidents of Chilian trouble, and
especially because a failure to act at
this time would render another treaty -
and a new arbitration necessary. This"
government now seems inclined to ac
cept this view of the case.
Duluth to Have a New Land Oflice
Special to the Globe.
Washington, Dec. 23.— The secre
tary of the interior this morning agreed
with Maj. Baldwin to immediately re
move Sheldon F. Frazer. receiver of the
Duluth land office, and appoint Henry
Ryan, of Duluth. A brief interview
with Land Commissioner Lamoreaux
convinced Mr. Baldwin that the appoint
ment of Baldwin would certainly taite
place within a day or two. There is
now little doubt that the St. Cloud land
officers will also be appointed within a
few days. There is no shadow of a
doubt that Secretary Smith strongly
sympathizes with Mr. Baldwin, and that
whatever influence he may be able to
wield with President Cleveland will be
used for Elmbeckers appointment. Mr.
Baldwin resolutely refused to consider
any kiud of a compromise which looks
to the appointment of a new man.
An Historic Hostelry.
Washington, Dec. 23.— One of the

days it. was run by the original Worm
ley, a colored man whose race connec
tions did not - pievent the place from
becoming a center for public men and
diplomats. The sons of the original
proprietor have carried it on until now,
when it passes into. the hands of Charles
E. Gibbs. who will be its first white
landlord. The old name of the house
will be retained.

—Politics Mixed Up With the
Merry Christmas Times—Em
peror's Speech Expected Soon.
[Copyrighted. 1803, by the Associated Press.l
Bkhlin, Dec. 23.— The approach; of
Christmas has influenced all public life
in Germany. During the past week, the
general; vacations have set In,- the the
aters have been closed, partly in prepa
ration.for. new pieces for the holidays,
and wholesale trade has stopped, as
usual, entirely. The schools were closed
yesterday, and railroad travel is at its
height, for everybody is going horne 1 for
Ciiristmas. The streets have the ap
pearance of a forest; there is hardly a
block without hundreds of Christmas
trees offered for sale. Over a quarter of
a million Christmas trees have arrived
In this city during the' mouth from
Sweden and. Nor way and from the Black
Forest. The 'streets are thronged as at
no other time .of the year. At some
hours of the afternoon motion in the
center of the business portion of Berlin
becomes almost impossible. As Christ
mas approaches the haste and hurry
increase, and nothing else is thought of
but Christmas gifts and Christinas
jollity; The empress is seen daily visit
ing the various shops in order.to.buy
gifts for herself, and all the members of
the court follow the example set by the

fight against Chancellor you Caprivi
and the government; its organ declares
that the tablecloth between the Con

the latter; that there is no longer any
common cause between them, anil it is
a case of "war to the knife." .'The
Liberal and Radical papers are an
noyed _at the conciliatory altitude
adopted by the chancellor and foreign
secretary towards the Agrarians, and
hope that the day is near nt hand when
Caprivi will take up the glove and fight.
The National Zeitung suggests that the
Conservatives could easily be made to
feel their folly if Caprivi would fill the
vacancies existing in the higher offices
by Liberals. The extreme methods ot
the Agrarians appear, however, to be
defeating their own ends, and the sihall
farmers are deserting the recently
formed Agrarian league by the hun

made it is expected that an understand^'

will, as.usual. unite all the commanding*:
officers of the German army around tho

looked forward to as a prediction of the

Prince Leopold of Bavaria, inspector of
the Fourth Army corps, will be present.

It has been remarked here that in his
last message to congress, President
Cleveland, speaking of the foreign rela
tions, has, is claimed, - discriminated
in his expressions between France and
Germany; while the former are an
nounced as being "excellent," the latter
are regarded as only "satisfactory."
This creates considerable* surprise in
diplomatic circles, as nothing has oc
curred on this side to mar the
Tho publication of Count yon Eulen
berg's circular has created a sensation
hardly inferior to that produced by the
original publication of the decree itself,
which led to the great reichstag debate
on Jan. 24, 1882, in which Prince Bis
marck, in a masterly speech, expounded
its importance and declared it was not
aimed at creating a new prerogative.
Then it was only extreme Radicals who
disapproved of the decree; now, on the
contrary, it is only the extreme Right,
Agrarians and extreme Ultramontan'es
who dislike Count yon Eulenberg's cir
cular. . -
The German press followed the Ital
ian crisis with keen interest: but its
comments were rather reserved.
The North German Gazette, however,
praises Premier Crispi's declaration for
its "lofty, patriotic sentiments and ab
solute sincerity," and expresses the be
lief that the eminently right man is in
the right place.
The debate the English parliament
upon the Duke of Saxe-Coburg
Gotha's . position seems likely
to create dissatisfaction here.
The Hamburger Nachrichten says
that the position of the duke was dis
cussed in a manner which cannot be
passed over without notice on the Ger
man side.- The duke, the paper - men
tioned adds, became a sovereign Ger
man federal prince, over whose rights
and duties no foreign parliament is en
titled to deliver an opinion. The Ham
burger Nachrichten concludes with the
remark that the incompatibility of such
an occurrence with the
due to the German empire aud its fed
eral princes should form the subject of
discussion at an early sitting of the
reichstag., ---.-.;. i
The Conservative Reichsbole regrets
that the reichstag has , not yet dealt
with the question, and the Berliner
Tageblatt says that nobody will take it
amiss that the Duke of Saxe-Coburg-
Gotha should desire to keep up relations
with the royal family of England; but
that he should wish to spend a part of
the year regularly iv England is most.
likely to cause displeasure in Coburg-"
Gotha, especially as it was not clearly
stated in the British parliament wheth
er he was to be regarded as a British
subject or not. rT'-tV-v-- S- r ?- I ''-.': r ; r ""?I' ■",".
Severe measures are being taken to
stop the Socialist propaganda in the
schools and colleges, owing to the rev
elation through the report of the di

Audience in the" Throne Room of

* Rome, Dec. 23.— The pope today gave
.audience to the cardinals, prelates and
bishops in the" throne room of the
j Vatican. The, usual .Christmas greet T
ings were exchanged, the distinguished
l ecclesiastics being, presented through
-Cardinal Monacols Valutta, dean of the
j sacred college. The reply of the holy
• father, to the address of the prelates
contained no direct reference to anarch
fists; though it was -expected that the
•pope -would declare himself very
■ strongly on this subject. -During" the
j course of his remarks the pope said:
j "in conformity with your wishes we
•ardently desire lobe, as many of our
I predecessors were, minister and mes
senger of peace, to Europe and to the
; world. We are its authorized zealous
defender, because "peace' among indi
viduals and among society is " the'
daughter of justice, which, according to
Holy Writ, lives by faith .and the su
preme priesthood of Christianity, being
the guardian of faith and the .defender
of justice, is invested with apostleship
for unity and peace. This apostleate
must be given freedom of action and its
words must be accented without sus
picion and carried" home to the hearts
of private citizens , and' governments.
Then tranquility will flourish again. If
peace and charity disappeared because
the sight of heaven has been lost, we
must not despair. . Days of rest are re
turning through the religious awaken
ing.: of .: the people: for, at a moment
marked by misery, germs of faith will
revive, .for Christ- will not abandon the

excited. In response to Aubrey's offer
; of assistance, Wentworth asked /-him to
pay a few trifling debts; and then be
haved in such an 'extraordinary manner
'as to cause Aubrey to question him*: as
to his state of, mind. In parting with
"his brother .Wentworth bade him ' good
by. : Aubrey * said- that he knew of no
'other reason for the suicide than money
/troubles. Wentworth' had -been very

treat him so. :*;'.l : have made a fresh will
today, as you wili find." The will-was
also read at the inquest and proved to

serviceable, he should not call at

. ; Pittsburg, "^Dec. 23— Hon. Benjamin
Harrison was in the city for a short time
; this morning, en route from Philadel
phia to his home in Indianapolis. The
ex-president cordially greeted the mem
bers of the press, but all efforts to draw
him into a conversation upon politics
proved fruitless, as he positively refused
to be interviewed on that subject, since
he was ho longer in public life. lie,
however, talked iuleiestingly on various
other subjects.
"What remedy do you think is needful
to place the country on its feet finan
cially?" was asked.
"Weil, legislation of some sort or
other will be necessary to accomplish
that, but of what character it is hard to
determine. The problem of general
poverty is one that confronts the coun
try, and it will take much systematized
charity and legislation to remove that."
' "Will this condition of affairs revert
to the success of the Republican party,
do you think?" _ "J ;:■
"Well, since 1 am not in public life I
have avoided giving expression to po
litical sentiments as much as possible."
Gen.' Harrison was then asked
whether he would be willing to again be
a candidate for the presidency, if called
upon by the Republican party, at the
next election, and said that he" had not
even given the matter a thought.
Acreage Much Smaller and Sup
?_.>-. . ply Ditto.
Toledo, Dec. 23.— During the past
four days C. A. Kinn & Co. have re
ceived replies from 3,381 grain meu aud
millers in Ohio, Indiana. Illinois, Mich
igan, Kansas and Missouri, which raise
two-thirds of the entire winter wheat
crop. Each state reports a smaller
acreage than last year. Michigan has
nearly one-fourth less, Missouri one
fifth, these showing the greatest de
crease. The crop goes into winter in
good condition. Some sections say it
was a little dry for the late-sown. Six
hundred and thirty-live report the pros
pect excellent, 1,23'J good, 1,014 fair, 383
fair, and only 75 say it has a very poor
start. The report shows that about
three-eighths of the 1893 wheat crop,
which was a short one, still remains in
farmers, dealers and interior millers'
hands in the six states. - Half of the re
ports say the reserves are about the
same as a year ago. Ohio has a
trifle more, Indiana and Michigan fully
as much, Illinois a trifle less, while
Kansas and Missouri have somewhat
less. Kansas and Missouri have only
enough to supply their local mills until
next harvest. Michigan and Illinois
will grind most of their surplus, but
Ohio and : Indiana have a fair surplus
for shipment. Less than a quarter of
the cloverseed crop remains unmarket
ed.- Most of the sections which report
fair stocks say it will be needed at
home. The reports say the crop has
turned out a trifle better than was ex
pected, especially iv Ohio, which had
the largest crop. .-j\ .'
