CHAIR MAX OF THE REPUBLICAN CAI-Cl'S.'-"'- M'DOWELL WILL BE CLERK. CZAR MAKES A SPEECH OX HE - ING NOMIXATED FOR SPEAKER. REJOICES IX PARTY SUCCESS. Fletcher and Towne, ns Prom ised, Would Vol Support the McDowell Ticket. * WASHINGTON; Nov. 30.— The Re publicans of the house of representa tives met in caucus tonight and unanimously- nominated ex-Speaker Thomas B. Reed.of Maine, for speak er of the Fifty-fourth congress. This action was anticipated, as at no time had any effort been inaugurated to contest his election. Hon. Galusha Grow, who was speaker of the house in 1559, nominated Mr. Reed in the THOMAS. B. REED. Speaker of the LIV. Congress. caucus. He simply presented Mr. Reed's name, and the nomination was made by a rising vote amidst cheers. Mr. Grow, Mr." Cannon and Mr. Payne escorted Mr. Reed to the hall, and when the cheering which greeted his appearance had subsid ed, he made a brief speech of ac ceptance. "Mr. Chairman and gentlemen," said Mr. Reed, "for the honor which you have conferred upon me I ten - der you my sincere thanks. I am, however, not in the least liable to confound with my own personality this tribute of your kindness. I had once the good fortune to be so placed that I represented as well as I was able the patriotic sense of a great ALEX Mcdowell, OF penna., To be Clerk of the House. party, and it is to that patriotic sense of our party that you tender the tribute of your matured as well as your temporary approval His tory will accord us praise for what we did in the Fifty-first congress, and it may accord us its praise in this for what we do not do. ' "We have unfortunately a divid ed government, which usually leads to small results. But there are times when rest is as health-giving as ex ercise. .We must not forget that our first and greatest duty is to do all we can to restore confidence to busi ness, and that we must avoid all business except in the direction of improving business.

"Could we cause our immense pop ular majority to overflow into other branches of _ the government, and could we have full control, we would create, not a perfect world, perhaps, but a world rather more fit to live in than we have lately had.' (Applause.*). Even as things are, I do not for a moment doubt that our patriotic in stincts will lead us to make every sacrifice except of principle to res cue our country from its temporary disaster. " Not only- have* we been ST.

That we shall be ready at all times to furnish adequate revenue for. the government, according to our sense of public duty, no man can doubt. ■ "This is the great , nation .of this hemisphere, and while we have no desire to interfere with other na tions, we shall maintain our position here with "firmness and self-respect, and at the same time with careful consideration of facts and that con servatism of action which shall leave no bad question of trouble in our fut ure. In this I trust the whole gov ernment in all its branches will be in accord with each other, and with the people." . . 77"-,7: hen Mr. Reed had finished his speech of acceptance, Mr. Foss, of Illinois, and Mr. Hilborn, of Cali fornia, each presented him with a gavel. These he accepted with appro priate remarks, in the course of which he alluded to the fact that he had spent some years on the Pacific coast as a young man. In closing his re marks, he said: "To all the audience I must add that I cannot undertake to reconcile the difference of these gentlemen as to their metallic views." The point in Mr. Reed's last re mark was the fact that Mr. Foss made an allusion to sound money, while Mr. Hilborn talked for free silver. The gavel presented by Mr. Foss was made of wood from the home of Henry Clay in Kentucky, and was handsomely carved out and mounted with silver and gold. The gavel .from California was from a piece of the old war Ship Hartford, which has recently been refitted in the Mare Island navy yard. M'DOWELL COMBINE. Previous to Mr. Reed's nomination the caucus had organized by elecli-g, Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, chairman of the caucus by a vote of 158 to 74 for Mr. Henderson, of lowa. Mr. Ellis, of Or egon, was elected secretary by a vote of 139 to 77 for Mr. Hooker, of New York. These officers will serve during the session. Mr. Grosvenor's election was a victory for what is known as the McDowell combination in house of ficers and foreshadowed the success of the combine ticket. In order, the fol lowing officers were then selected by the caucus, . the vote for each being about the same as that given to Mr. ! Grosvenor;- -'.: .-;■;• . Clerk— Alexander McDowell, of Penn sylvania. Sergeant-at-Arms— Benjamin F. Rvs sell, of Missouri. DOORKEEPER— WiIIiam, J. Glenn, of New York. Postmaster— C. McElroy, of Ohio. :'-yy .<;■ -ly r >/-: -~k. ";^7 :: : ;;'-N*:-. -'7; All of the Minesota cogressmen except Fletcher and Towne voted for the winners In the caucus. This means that Fletcher and Towne will get no patronage for their constituents. The men from • the Western states ; op posed, to the combine declare that the West has been "buncoed" from start to finish. Southern Republican mem bers hold to the same opinion. It has been ascertained that the East, has gobbled two-thirds of all the patronage and four-fifths of the salaries that will be drawn during the ensuing congress. The successful candidate for clerk, ex-Representative McDowell, was nom inated by Mr. Dalzell. of Pennsylvania, and Gen. Henderson, of Illinois, also an ex-representative, was nominated by Mr. Cannon, of Illinois. The vote was: McDowell, l64 ;. Henderson, 74. Mr. Russell was nominated by Mr. Bar thold, of Missouri, and Mr. Evans, of Kentucky, presented the name of E. D. Parker, of his state. Mr. Evans said that the* South was a few years- -ago practically without representation on the Republican side of the house. The, Republicans of that section had • by determined work wrested twenty-three representatives from the . Democrats. Party policy demanded that these ef forts should be recognized In the dis tribution of offices, and he thought that he might be presented for sergeant at he accorded that section. But Mr. Rus sell was elected, 167 to 70 for Parker. TOOK THEM ALL. It was thought that after Gen. Hen derson had been defeated for clerk that he might be presented for sergenat-at arms, but it was found that the com bination was too strong to be broken in ' that way. Mr. Payne, 'of . New York, nominated Mr. Glenn for door keeper, and Mr. Dinney, of North Car olina, named William Tipton, of Ten nessee, for the same position. . The vote was: Glenn, 174; Tipton, 65. Mr. Northway.of Ohio, nominated Mr. McElroy for postmaster, and Mr. Tip ton, of Tennessee, was named by Mr. McCall, of that tate, for the place. The vote was: McElroy, 167; Tipton, 70. The most protracted contest was for chaplain. Nine men were nominated, only two being outside the District of Columbia. . Rev. H. N. Couden, of Michigan, was nominated on the third ballot, receiving 102 votes, against- 96 for. H. C. Fisher,. of Kansas, the other candidates having been in the mean time withdrawn. * 7.'': 7; The caucus adjourned at 1:15 o'clock Sunday morning, after providing for the employment of two additonal pages in the house. ._7_7 - 7 TRIBUTE TO CRISP. Democrats Renominate Him for the Speakership. WASHINGTON, Nov. Sixty-two of the members of the Democratic mi nority of the house met in caucas this afternoon to form the Democratic or ganization and renominate their of ficers in the last congress. Mr. Cul bertson,' of Texas, who has held his seat since the Forty-fourth congress, was elected chairman of the Democrat ic caucus for the Fifty-Fourth congress, to succeed Mr. Holman, of Indiana. Messrs. i Robinson, of Louisiana, and Rusk, of Maryland, were elected cau cus secretaries. Ex-Speaker Crisp was named for a third term by Mr. Rich ardson, of Tennessee, and the nomina tion was carried unanimously, with considerable enthusiasm. The other officers of the Fifty-third congress were selected as the Democratic slate, without opposition. Selection of the three or four minor officers whom the minority is permitted to name was postpone^. ._, t In nominating Mr. Crisp, Mr. Rich ardson touched on the future policy of 'the party. He said that he had been selected to formally name one who had already been named In the"' hearts of all. He spoke of the selec tion of Mr. Crisp tor the speakership of the Fifty-second congrrss by the 240 Democrats, after a sharp and bril liant contest; of his election a second time by the 215 Democrats of the Fifty- -j third congress, and said they had met, 4 , a third time to honor him. - -j "A small band of struggling patriots, i with full knowledge that our declara- tion will be' lmpotent.

They also pronounced in favor of the distribu- •* tion of the appropriation bills among ' the various senate committees, and j also discussesd the committee assign- ■ ments of senators. It was made cvi- ■ dent that the Western men would stand together to secure the control of the committees which deal especially with | Western questions.

DIATRIBES AGAINST COLOXISTS WAGING THE WAR OF IN- , DEPENDENCE. -"-.#■-': TWO UNPUBLISHED SERMONS. Charles Wesley th-p Au-Jhor of " Writing;* That Were Never Supposed to Exist, LONDON Nov. 30.— Diagonally opposite the famous Bunhill Fields cemetery, famous as being the last resting place of John Bunyon, Daniel | Defoe and George Fox, stands, at the j corner of Castle street and the city | road, a plain brick building, tenanted j by the officers of the Weslyan confer ence. Within its walls are stored the , archives pertaining to Methodism . from the date May 24, 1738, when Methodism, as history knows it, was born. The vaults of the building are stored with a mass of documents, j letters and unpublished sermons J which, for the past century and a J half have slowly but surely been j accumulating. It has "remained for Rev. Charles H. Keely, the secre- j tary of the Wesleya* conference, to * ; have made within the past few weeks ; a most interesting literary discovery, 1 ; and one which, from the nature of ' the matter unearthed, is also of. es WARNED OFF THE FIELD BY DECEMBER. pecial interest to Americans. Three weeks ago Mr. Keely had occasion to visit the vaults in order to oversee some slight repairs which were in progress. This involved the shift ing of a number of old volumes and the emptying of a cupboard long disused. To his surprise one of these books upon being, opened was found to contain numerous manuscripts of poems and sermons, written in a clear and legible hand. Something in the handwriting struck him as being in some manner familiar.' Investiga tion followed, and thirteen more vol umes were discovered. These, on be ing opened, were found to contain manuscript works of Charles Wesley. Nor was this all. In the cupboard mentioned a large bundle, wrapped in paper discolored by age and damp ness, was found. This also contained, manuscript poems of Charles Wesley, and, what was more. important, the subjects of many of the latter were the author's diatribes against the American colonists for the "unholy" war for independence which they were then waging. j UNPUBLISHED POEMS. It is of course. so well known that .Charles Wesley was a Tory of the most pronounced and conservative type. Unlike his brother John, who had written open letters to Lord North protesting against the "car rying on of a war against a brave people," Charles could see nothing that the colonists deserved for their rebellion but the awful wrath of God. It is surmised that this bundle of poems is the one which Charles Wesley sent to Rev. Thomas Jackson when the latter was preparing his '"Life of Wesley." Most of these poems had never been published, al though the number of books of ro etry published by the brothers, sep arately or in conjunction, is sixty three. Prominent among these un published poems is one written in 1780 and entitled "American Inde pendence." As one reads it. is diffi cult to imagine that its metaphor and meter were composed by the same man who also penned the immortal and exquisite lyric, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." The poem, which is of great length, begins: "Where is Old England's glory fled, Which shone so bright in ages past? Virtue with our forefathers died, • And public faith has breathed its last; .-*.'.. - y-y And men who falsified 'their trust . Ha vfe laid our houses in the dust. : Our rftk-rs have to rebels sued ■-■< And given us up into their hands, Rapacious, profligate and lewd, ; • Obedient to our foes' commands. ■ They; serve our cause with frantic -'"zeal, Factors of France and tools of hell. Then comes another, written in 1783, having for its title "The Testimony of the American Loyalists." It com mences:. _ ...'*i>.7. .*.••• i "Outcasts of men, by all forsook, To whom< shall we for succor look, To whom our griefs declare? Will high or low Incline their ear And with humane compassion hear The cry of despair?" • NOT BY FIRE AND SWORD. Still another seems to have been in spired 'by ithe -.declaration of -Lord Carleton that "the conquest of Amer ica by fire and sword is not to be ac complished." 7.7777 "True is the patriotic word, We never can by fire and sword The fierce Americans subdue :v If we our general's steps pursue. Against his friends his sword is turned; He spoils and plunders them and burns. Such leaders never can aspire .'Vi '-": y- Rebels to quell with sword and fire; But Without fire another can accom plish Who truth and righteousness approves And more than gold his country loves. A man for this great end designed We now, at last, expect to find, By providential love bestowed. Whose object is Brltanla's good, Brltanla's peace his only aim, And Carleton is the patriot's name." One of the volumes is especially in teresting by reason of two manuscript sermons which it contains. One was preached before the students of Oxford unversity; the other was written while Wesley was In America, The preface of the letter is thus inscribed: "Writ ten on board ye 'London' galley, Capt. Judivew, between Charlestown and Boston. September, 1736." Charles Wesley wrote many of his sermons in shorthand, using for. this purpose the old system invented by Dr. John Byron, of Manchester, in 1831. NOTES OF JOHN WESLEY. Among the relics of the Brothers Wesley -preserved at the rooms of the Wesleyan conference is John Wesley's notebook when a student at Lincoln college, Oxford, which contains the notes he used in preparing his exhorta tion to the Holy club, of which he was one of the founders while In college. Another is a copy of "Walker's Week ly Penny Journal" of date of Oct. 18, 1735. It bears upon its ancient and yellow page the following paragraphs: '•James Oglethorpe, Esq., member of parliament for Haslemere, in the coun ty of Surrey, embarks on board the . Simmons, Capt.

MINNESOTA STATE IMMIGRA TION ASSOCIATION DULY ORGANIZED. P r l SCHURMEIER AT THE HEAD. HE -STARTS THE GOOD WORK WITH A GENEROUS DONA TION OF 92,500. HEADQUARTERS TO BE OPENED, With P. B. Groat in Active Charge aa Secretary and Trea.s nrer. That the immigration convention which was recently held in St. Paul is to bear fruit for the Northwest far beyond the expectations of its most sanguine promoters was made apparent yesterday by the enthusi asm with which the executive com mittee for the state of Minnesota went at the work of organizing and preparing for the active work of in ducing immigration from the East to the North Star state. The Minnesota Immigration asso ciation which came into existence as the result of yesterday's meeting starts out with a well filled treasury and with Theodore L. Schurmeier as president and P. B. Groat as secre tary and treasurer. Mr. Groat will have charge of the headquarters to be opened in St. Paul, and from that point will direct the workings of the branch organizations which it is ex pected will be formed in every coun ty. For the neat little bank account the society is indebted to its presi dent, Mr. Schurmeier, who, upon his election yesterday, generously do nated a check for $2,500 to set the mahinery in motion. This will be used in the publication of circulars and maps of the state to be distrib uted in .the East, and in aiding in the organization of county societies. The executive committee of the asso cation met in St. Paul yesterday on the call of Theo L. Schurmeier, In ac cordance with the resolution passed by the state delegation at the recent immigration convention. All the mem bers were present, as follows: ' First district, John Frank, of Le • Roy, by proxy. Second district, W. R. Edwards, of Tracy. **.-..: ■■-*.; _~.. .: * Third district, Tarns Bixby, of Red ■Wing. • Fourth district, Theo L. Schurmeier, of St. Paul. Sixth district, Dr. C. A. Kelsey, of Brook Park. Seventh district, Edward Balantine, of Campbell. _^ ■; ■-.;-- On calling the .committee to order Mr. Schurmeier said: ,--. 717i-j 7-77 • Gentlemen" of the Executive Commit tee: Having had the honor to be chosen 7 chairman of the Minnesota State Immigration association, I feel the responsibilities that have been placed upon me in carrying out the In tentions of. the association, and al though the office involves much labor and care, I accepted the position with the full determination of giving it my best attention. Appreciating the great ' importance to our state of immediate action in organizing for effective work in the line of encouraging immigration to Minnesota, I have taken the earliest opportunity of calling together the executive committee of the association for the purpose of arranging ways and means and adopting practical meas ures to further the objects in view. *. The large attendance and the great enthusiasm and unanimity which char acterized the deliberations of the Northwestern immigration convention, over which I had the honor to preside, give the strongest assurance that the work in hand will be pushed with en ergy by appropriate organizations in each of the states represented to ad vertise the advantages which they offer for new settlement. Minnesota, being -the- initial state in the great immigration movement in augurated by the recent convention, will naturally be looked to "by all of the other states represented in that im portant assemblage to set an example for prompt action in organizing a sys tem of practical and thorough work to Induce Immigration. While we are all interested generally in the growth and prosperity of the entire Northwest, we have a direct in terest in notifying the world at large of the many advantages which Minne sota offers for the success of settlers. By considerate action on our part, supplemented by the co-operative ef forts of county organizations, we can and will at an early day add another 100,000 to our present population of 1,500,000 to help develop the rich diversi fied resources of our state. If the cit izens of the state generally will join in the work of making known to home seekers the natural advantages which Minnesota offers for independent homes in its large areas of unoccupied lands, with a highly fertile soil, Its healthy climate and undeveloped tim ber | and mineral resources, we can soon reach our mark of 10,000 new set tlers, and by united, continuous efforts can within a reasonable period of time double the present, number of inhabi tants of the state.*-. In placing a candidate In nomination for secretary and treasurer Mr. Schur meier begged leave to offer the follow ing suggestion: Since the adjournment of the conven tion I have been actively engaged in devising plans for carrying out the pur poses of the association and the gen eral wishes of the citi^ns of Minne sota for additional settlement in the state. While I am willing to give this important movement all of the atten tion that I can. consistent with other duties, and stand ready to contribute material aid, I feel that we must have a capable man to devote his whole time to the work of organizing a systematic plan of operation and to visit differ ent parts of the state to secure the co operation of districts, counties, cities and towns. I felt - that we needed an experienced man and one who would use the means furnished for this work judiciously. I have given the subject careful thought and have con ferred with parties well informed as to the experience and abilities required to bring the best results. I have also con ferred with Influential parties, who have signified their willingness to con tribute material aid for carrying on the work if assured, that the means fur nished will be used in practical ways to accomplish the most good. After considering the matter carefully and knowing the Importance of experienced assistance and that active work should commence at once and advance as rap idly as circumstances will admit I will present for - your consideration the name of P. B. Groat to act as secre tary and treasurer. In presenting his name for your consideration I feel con fident that the work required to pro mote Immigration to our state could not be placed in better hands. He en joys the confidence of Influential citi zens and is widely known and under stands from long years of experience the best methods to adopt to bring to the attention of intending settlers the advantages and resources of our state. Carrying out the above suggestion P. B.
