Gossip as to Chairmen of
Committees in the Fifty-
Fourth Congress.
Currency Revision Makes the
Eanking: Committee One
of the Leaders.
But Those of the Democratic
Persuasion Are Doing 1 No
Talking 1.
Washington, Nov. IS.—The house
Committees which are expected to be of
the greatest importance in the next
congress are those on ways anil means,
appropriations, rule?, banking and cur
rency, coinage, weights and measures,
rivers and harbors, and public buildings
and grounds. The first three named
always head the list in order of im
portance. The others are expected to
assume importance in the next congress
because of the especial conditions which
will prevail during that congress. The
banking committee will certainly be
one of the most important committees
in the entire list if there should be an
effort, as is hinted then may be, to re
vise the currency laws and change the
present system. Such legislation as this
would lilt the committee dealing with
it from its present place of insurnif-
Icauce and place it for the time along
side the ways and u.eans committee.
The probability of an effort to secure
silver legislation, and the probability
that the Republican party, when it
comes into power in the house, will
want to
Formulate a Poiit-y
on this question, will have the effect
also of advancing the coinage committee
to a position of first rank. Tnts river
ami harbor and public buildings com
mittees will have the delicate task of
providing for public improvements, so
tar as committees of the house can ac
complish this work. With so many new
men as there will be on the Republican
side in the congress, and all of them
feeling that it will be necessary for
them to make a showing to their con
stituents, there wiil naturally be a
pretty general clamor for appropriations
tor postoffice buildings, customs houses
and river and harbor improvements.
Whiie the R.'publican party has always
shown a disposition towards liberality
In public improvements, there is a prob
ability of an effort to hold these miscel
laneous appropriations as low a? possi
ble. The low condition of tiie treasury,
and the fact that a presidential election
will be so near at hand, will prove
■trong arguments in this direction, a3
will the possibility of a presidential
veto. Republicans at present have six
of the seventeen members of the com
mittee on rivers and harbors, and all
their members have been re-elected
except Mr. Henderson, of Illinois. V>'ith
Henderson out of the way, Hermann, of
Takes Fir*t Place
In the Republican membership of the
committee, with Stephenson, of Michi
gan: Hooker, of New York: Grosvenor,
of Ohio, and Key burn, ofvPeuusylvania,
following in the order named. It can
not, of course, be Known whether the
next speaker will foliow the seniority
rule: if lie should, Mr. Hermann would
become chairman. Mr. Milriken, of
Mnine, heads the Republican member
ship of the committee on public build
ings, and the chances are that, it Mr.
Reed becomes speaker, Mr. Milliken
will be chairman of tins committee.
Mr. Morse, of Massachusetts, is the only
other Republican member of the com
mittee returned. Only three of the old
Republican members of the committee
on banking and currency are re-elected.
They arc Messrs. Walker, of Massa
chusetts: Russell, of Connecticut, and
Johnson, of Indiana. Mr. WalKer i? the
senior Republican member. He has
from the beginning of his*congressional
career taken an active interest in fin
ancial Questions, and his chances of se
curing the chairmanship will be the
best. Of the six present Republican
members of the committee on coinage,
weights and measures,
Frre Have Been Re-elected
to the Fifty-fourth congress. They are,
in the order named, Stone, or Pennsyl
vania; Johnsou,of North Dakota; Ding
ley, of Maine: Ilagar. of lowa, and Al
drich, of Illinois. Mr. Stone would
natura'ly become chairman of the com
mittee, but it is suggested that, in case
of Mr. Heed becoming speaker, he might
have a personal policy with reference to
silver which he would want to pursue,
an<i, in tli at event,' tuight want Mr.
Dliijdey, of his own state, as the leader
of tnis committee. In the natural order
of events, lion. J. C. Burrows, of
Michigan, will become chairman of the
Reed in the speaker's chair, but
there is little doubt that he will be
given this important post, which carries
with it. the Republican leadership on
the floor of the house, if he fails in his
ambition to succeed Senator Patten to
his seat in the senate. With Mr. Reed
in the speaker's chair and Mr. Burrows
in the senate, there would be only three
Republican members of the present
committee left to choose from, these
being Messrs. Payne, of New York;
Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, and Hopkins,
if Illinois. D. B. Henderson, of lowa,
Is the ranking Republican member of
the appropriations committee, with
Messrs. Cogswell, of Massachusetts;
Bingham, of Pennsylvania; Dingley, of
Maine; Grout,of Vermont, and Cannon,
of Illinois, coining in the order named.
There is likely to be ' (
A Conflict
between the first and last-named of this
fist. While Henderson is now the rank-
Ing member of the committee, Cannon
was chairman in the Fifty-first con-
Kress, ami will probably have to have
his old place lack. It is possible that
neither Cannon nor Henderson will net
the place, tor, in the event of Burrows
becoming chairman of the ways and
means cc minim c, the probabilities are
strong that the East would demand the
chairmanship of the next most import^
ant, which would be that of appropria
tions. In that contingency Gen. Cokks
well's chances for being promoted to
the head of the committee would be ex
cellent. if" Mr. Heed becomes speaker
of the house fie Republican member
ship of the committee on rules will
probably be composed of himself and
the chairmen of the appropriations and
the ways and means committees. He
pursued this plan in the Kit'.y-tirst con
gress, and there is reason to believe
that he would revive it rather than imi
tate Mr. Crisp by more generally dis
tributing the honors.
The Democrats Are Not Saying a
Great Deal.
Washington, Nov. is.—Democratic
senators who are at present in the city
decline, almost without exception, to
discuss the probable plans of the Demo
cratic leaders in the senate with refer
ence to the supplemental tariff bills at
the Forthcoming short session of con
gress. The majority of them are con
tent with savins that they have had no
opportunity for party conference, and
they do not wish to. at this time, ex
press personal opinions. It would seem
probable from this that a general Dem
ocratic conference among the party
members in the senate is among the
strong probabilities soon after the con
veniug of the next session, for the pur
pose at determining this point. It is, of
course, well remembered that a
faction on the Democratic side of the
chamber is opposed to any further ef
forts at tariff legislation by the present
congress, and it is thought possible that
the result of the late elections may have
influenced others to take this view.
Senator Voortiees, chairman of the sen
ate committee on finance, declines to
taik for publication on all subjects con
nected with cottjcreM or politics. Sen
ator Harris, aiso a Democratic member
of this committee, contented himself
with referring an Associated Press re
porter wiio accosted him on this subject
to his remarks upon the point before the
adjournment of the last session. It is
recalled that he then announced his
purpose of trying to get the supple
mental bills up at the earliest opportu
nity in the short session.
But It Is a Pretty Fair Place to
Live In.
Washington, Nov. 18. — James
Sbeabley, governor of Alaska, has sub
mitted liis annual report to the secre
tary of tin' interior of the general con
ditions of the territory, lie says:
"Notwithstanding the unfavorable
climatic conditions of the spring and
early summer months, many am enter

successful, the mines have yielded
profitable returns, the population has
been largely augmented by U&Dicra
tion. and me people have enjoyed a sea
son of unusual progress and prosperity.
"The civil officers have been vigilant
and faithful in the discharge of their
duties, and, in view of the extent of the
territory over which they exercise au
thority and the absence of transporta
tion and other facilities indispensable
for the execution of the law, crime is
less frequent and law and order quite as
well enforced as in some of the more
densely populated and highly civilized
"The building of sawmills and the
manufacturing of lumber in the terri
tory have revolutionized aud improved

From Earthquakes in Sicily and
Southern Italy.
Romk. Nov. 18.— The earthquakes in
Sicily and Southern Italy caused con
siderable damage to the telegraph Jines,
and details of the phenomena are com
ing to hand slowly. It is known, how
ever, that the province of Reggio Di
Calabria suffered the severest damage
by the seismic disturbances. Little
damage was dove in Reggio, the capital
of the province, but there was great
loss of life and much damage to prop
erty el&ewhere in the province. Seven
teen communes were involved in the
disturbance, the centers of which were
in the vicinity of Palmi. 81 miles
northwest of Res^io aud Bagnara.on the
gulf of Gioja, almost directly opposite
Punta Del Faro, Sicily. The village of
San Procoplo, near Palmi, was almost
entirely destroyed. Here sixty persons
were killed. Forty-seven of these met
their death in a church to which they
had fled for refuge. Their bodies are
still in the ruins. At Batrnarti seven
persons were killed. Eight lost their
lives at Mamerlino and San Effemia,
being crushed to death, while many
others were iujured. The Inhabitants
of these places are obliged to camp in
the open air. Prime Minister Crispi
has scut a large sum of money for the
relief of the sufferer* and has placed
two vessels at the disposal of the pre
fect oi Bagnara. In the Calabiian
towns of Triparni and Mlleto many
houses were destroyed and a number of
persons injured.
Much damage was also done in the
adjacent province of Catanzaro. The
residents of Messina were in a condition
of panic last night, They were in great
fear of a renewal of the shocks aud
passed the night camped out in the
squares of the city in railway carriages
and on board vessels lying in the har
bor. The panic has lessened tonight,
nnd in some instances the work of re
pairing damaged buildings has already
commenced. Lnrre electric lights have
been erected to illuminate the channel
until the lighthouse, destroyed by the
eartnquakes, shall have been" rebuilt.
Renewed shocks were f^lt yesterday
aud today at Milazzo, eighteen miles
west of Messina. So severe were the
movements of the earth that great seams
appeared in the walls of ninny hous.es.
The inhabitants of thij place are still
badly frightened and remain camped in
the opeu spaces, fearing to return to
their homes. No fun her shocks have
been reported from other places.
A dispatch from Rome to the Standard
says that King Humbert has donated a
large sum of money for the relief of
the earthquake sufferers. Sixiy lives
were lest by the falling of the church at
San Procopio.
Mexico Wants a Little Tilt With
Comitax, Mex., Nov. 18.—New troops
liave arrived and taken station cover

possible feeling here in tavor of war
with Guatemala. The Chapana are
all willing to shoulder muskets, and
many of them have made offers to the

against the Guatemalan government,
whicn has lately relieved all the author
ities who wet* from this section and
has appointed people from the interior
to nil their positions, and an uprising is
imminent. An agent of the Guatemalan
government is here trying to purchase

Tobasco also.
City of MKXIOO, Nov. 18.—The Na

Bombay, Nov. 18.—There is reason
to believe that the recent attack by
Waziri tribes upon the escort of the
commission delimiting, under agree
ment with the ameer of Afghanistan,
the boundary between Waziristan and
the Punjaub, was led by deserters from
the Twentieth regiment of Punjaub in
fantry. An ex-halidar, a non-commis
sioned officer of the Indian army, corre
sponding in rank to the sergeant, was
actually engaged in the assault. The
Waziris lost in the attack above-men
tioned 250 killed. The British losses
were 3 officers, 15 soldiers and 21 fol
lowers killed, and a tew officers and 32
men wounded. The Waziris were
driven off, and it is thought that the
punishment they received will deter
them from further attacking the Brit
Figaro's Kditop Dead.

He was fifty-eight years of age. M.

groes at Krinkjabo. A French force
attacked the natives and killed fnany of
them. The French lost one killed and
many wounded. A French punitive

Senator Washburn Has a
Hard Fight on His
Minneapolis Is Not Solid for
Her Present Sen
Ex-Gov. Burke, as a Drummer
Boy, Went Through a
Fiercer War.
All of the Minneapolis papers concede
that the delegation of his own county is
not solid for Senator Washburn for a
re-election. The managers of that gen
tleman have ali along conceded that at
least three of the delegates are hostile
to the senator. It is claimed that, while
several of the others were, presumably,
elected as Washburn men, yet they are
not bound to him. It is clearly evident
that there was never a majority of the
people in the state favorable to his re
election. It is known that Washburn
lieutenants, and that gentleman in per
son, went about the state when
the Republican party was scared
about the election, and Intimidated
candidates with threats of defeat in
case they did not at least withdraw
open opposition to his re-election. As
soon as the evidence of the landslide
became apparent the people who were
thus intimidated saw that there was
no longer any reason to hold their
breath. They also began to hear from
the citizens protests against the placing
of the representative of the Canadian
Pacific and a man favorable to the
wheat ring back in the senate. The cry
Is still going up for a good, representa

The Penny Press, an avowed Wash
burn paper, had auother account of the
meeting; Saturday evening and pub
lished an interview with Mr. Under
wood, a member of the delegation. The
interview Is given below as it appeared
in the Penny Press:
"The resolution Is a lie on its face,"
said Representative Underwood this
morning, commenting on the actiou of
the Hcniiepin delegation. "It declares
that the statement in some of the
papers that there is opposition to Wash
burn is false, and then declares that
Washburn is the unanimous choice,
and that every one of the members
earnestly desires his re-election and
will strive to secure it. Myselt and oth-«
ers were opposed to the passage of the
resolution, and 1 at least did not vote
for it.
"Several members felt and ?till feel as
I do." said he, "and this morning are
more than ever convinced of the mis
take made by" jamming the resolution
down our throats. I made no fuss, but
asko4that action be deferred one week,
in which time 1 thought Senator Wash
burn might be able to explain to the
satisfaction of myself and constituents.
Mr. Wright spoke to the same effect,
and Mr. Alinstrom and others feel the
same. It was a great mistake to brine
the matter up at this time, and a greater
one to compel men to vote. The resolu
tion being false and meaningless, com
mits no one, and it is so regarded by
several of the delegation. There is go
ing to be lots of fun before Washburu is
returned to the senate."
Mr. Under wooa said that ho was in
formed that there was much opposition
in tualiy parts of the state. He further
declared that his own attitude was from
no personal difficulty with the senator,
nor for any selfish motives, but that it is
the position of his constituents, he hav
ing been nominated by delegates se*
lected when the Washburn question was
made an issuy, and the anti-Washburn
forces won. The caucus was called, he
said, on a printed notice stating that it
was to dott'rmine whether the district
was for Washburn or no!, by a circular
put lv the hands of eve fj voter.

There are quite a number of new can
didates aspiring to \V. D. Washburn's
seat in the United States senate, and
the chances are that Washburn will
have a hard time to secure votes enough
to re-elect him. He is not the choice of
the people outside the cities, and they
are likely to insist upon a representa
tive in the United States senate that is
nearer to them. There are a number
of persons named who would be better
representatives of the people than
Washburn, among the number being
Lind, MeCleary, Heatwole, Tawuey,ancl
many others.—Le Sueur News.

will be actively engaged in the senator
ship contest, either as candidate or as
supporter of sume anti-Washburn man.
Another story says the southern coun
ties wiil unite on a senatorial camiidate
from that section, and possibly Heat
wole or McCieary may be the choice.
Anyhow, the senatorial contest will
start early, in fact.it is started now,
and there will be a hot tight before that
six years' job in Washington is parceled
out.—Stillwater Gazette.
It is already evident that Senator
Washburn will not have a walkover in
his contest for re-election. The names
of S. G. Comstock, of Moorhead; O. D.
Kinnuy, of Duluth; John Lind. of New
Ulm; J.A. Tawney, of Winona, and D.
F. Morgan, of Minneapolis, are already
added to the list of prospective candi
dates. Both senators are now from the
Twin Cities. It is in the power of the
country to capture one of the seats in
the senate, if the country members can
unite, Washburn will be retired. The
question is, can they unite? The coun
try is entitled to a senator, and by right
should have one. Will it assert its
rights or supiuely submit to the dicta
tion of the cities, the corporations and
the plutocrats'
The scenes attending the last election
of Washburn were a disgrace to the
state. Bribery was rampant and money
carried the day. These facts are al
ready established by the report of the
legislative investigation committee. Let
us hope, for the honor of the state, that
they will not be repeated.—The Repre

Messrs. Comstock, Kinney, Tawney,

Washburn is not liable to have every*
thing his own way this winter. Already

prominently mentioned as Washburn's
successor. Tawney would suit us to a

senator. A spirited campaign may be
expected.—Little Falls Journal.
That Senator Washburn, a lifelong
railroad man, thoroughly imbued with
the doctrine of corporation greed, ought
not to bo re-elected, goes without say-
Ing. The people of the great state of
Minnesota ought not to be represented
by two corporation attorneys from the
Twin Cities; and yet, as between Mr.
Wa«hburn and Mr. Merriam, the former
is the better man. Hut the great masses
of the tollers of Minnesota ought to
have some such man as John Lind. of
Drown county, or Judge Stvarns, of
Duluth, to represent them in the sen
ate.—Waseca Herald.

Cleveland, Nov. lb.~ Business wai
laid aside today by the delegates and
officers of the National W. C T. U. con
vention. The hours were devoted t«
worship and rest. Many of the visitors
spoke in pulpits thrown open to them
by the city pastors. A mass meeting
was held iv Music hall at :i o'clock iv
the afternoon. President James W.
Bashford, of Ohio Wesleyan university,
was accorded the honor of delivering
the annual sermon, which office had
heretofore been filled by women. His
utterances were preceded by an intro
duction by Miss Willard, iv which she
called attention to;the innovation. Ap
plause was created by Home of Dr.
Bashford's sentences. The preacher
took for his text Matt, vi., l-"Thy
kingdom come, Thy will be dove on
earth as it is iv heaven." He said that
the intent of the Women's Christian
Temperance union was to brine the
kingdom of heaven on earth. He
thouiiht it applicaole that the subject
for the consideration of the hour should
be: "The problems to be solved in
bringiDg in the kingdom," and "the
best solution of the problems whiefc
confront our civilization." One of tlie
problems he regarded to be

question of municipal government is a

urban population becomes larger than
the ruial population, the republic is
doomed. Dc we not need to pray
earnestly today: Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done on earth as it is iv
Dr. Bashford adverted to the distribu
tion of wealth, commenting upon asser
tions made by Dr. Strong in tne New
Era, ai:d upon conclusions reached by
ithers in a study ot the subject. The
speaker held that inequalities existed
which, unless remedied, threatened the
civilization of today.
Individual Freedom,
he said, was a great boon, but individ
ualism had been carried toe far. "Our
materialistic philosophy,' 1 he remarked,
"has crystallized in the Satanic motto,
'Every iuau for himself and thedevi!
take the hindmost.' Unfortunately
even that motto is not -true. Whenever
man is for himself Satan gets all of us."
World-wide relations were next dis*
cussed. "We are spiritually asleep,"
said the preacher, "dreaming the self
same dreams of. race supremacy that
have wrecked the greatest nations of
the world. America in the twentieth
century must say to all men, even to
the lagoa and to the Uuiteau*. to tiiu
Lobengulas and the Calibans, 'We ara
brethren,' and lift tiiem up to angel*
hood, oi the Calibans will hoarsely hiss
in our ears, 'We are brethren, 1 and will
drag us down to beastliness."
Then Dr. Basfcfordaddressed himself
to the question of intemperance.
'•Our strange and violent political
chhiiges," he said, "at least Indicate the
strange unrest of the people. The Ke
publicati party, after the passing of the
tariff bill, met with an overwhelming
defeat, because the people uid not nail
in that measure the financial relief they
expected. The Democratic party met
with a still more ♦

because the people have not found in It
the relief they are blindly seeking."
held that the prohibition move
ment would be the ultimate remedy,
and that this could be brought about
much quicker by placing the ballot in
the hands of women. He urged the
women to influence their husbands and
brothers to attend political caucuses
and put themselves on record as be
lievers in woman suffrage. The lat
ter part of the sermon was an
account of n temperance movement
in Washington's time. Washington, a
handled years ago, was characterized
as a temperance reformer. Washington
owned a distillery and sold whisky. His
expense account in his own handwrit
ing shows that he spent money freely
for liquor when he was a candidate tor
the house of burgesses for the Virgin*
legislature* and yet one of the first tem
perance organizations 100 years ago
took refuse under his name, and called
itself the Washington society. At the
rate at which temperance reform had
progressed since that time the ultimate
triumph of its principles would be seen
in the twentieth century. After the
sermon a rousing suffrage meeting was
held, presided over by Susan 13. An
thony, and this evening meetings of the
unions were held in different parts of
the city, presided over by secretaries of.
the organizations from different states.
