In the debate in the house of repre sentatives on the army appropriation bill we have a member letting the cat out of the bag- and following precisely the line that the Globe has describ ed and prophesied as a part of the pro gramme of the un-American politicians ■who are howling for an overthrow of the American system to make room for one fashioned upon the monarchies of Europe. We said yesterday, in speak ing of the demand for Hawaii and the clamor Cor ever more and more forti fications and fleets and munitions of war, thai the capstone of this argu ment must be an increase of our land forces tv an equality with those of Kngland, France, Germany and Rus sia. This was no empty prophecy on our I art. Representative McClellan has challenged the attention of the country by a speech in the house not only at tacking tr*» present army organization, but paralleling, with reference to the nrmy, as he has a logical right to do, the argument advanced by the advo cates of unlimited naval expansion and the policy of colonial aggression. Mr. McClellan needs only to point to the same old man of straw that the jin goes and annexationists have set up. We do not need a big standing army, of course, for our oresent wants, but to "meet an emergenov " He notices, in the old familiar way, that we are "utterly unprepared for war, and, to make us prepared, we must have a mil itary equipment like those of the European nations." We are glad to see this logical evolution of the jingo ar gument appear at this early date, be cause it may serve to recall to their ordinary senses a large portion of our people who have been led away, if not to jingoism, at least to a station half way (in the route, without seeing the fatal consequences that it implies. This country of ours was founded on several great ideas, among which were to be not only freedom of conscience, of speech and of action, but freedom from certain unbearable conditions that were found to be universally in separable from the forms of govern ment prevailing in the old world. These evils, against which the forefathers fought as truly as they did against taxation «vithout representation, in- Eluded not only hereditary rulers, but the mighty military and naval estab lishment which those rulers were bound to maintain to protect themselves against their own people. For a cen tury we have followed that policy. We have looked with righteous abhorrence upon the burdens of standing armies and of great navies, natural symptoms and necessary concomitants of des potic rule, and we have thanked the Lord and the fathers that we were free from them. Are we now to place, voluntarily, our necks beneath this red yoke? It looks a little like it. For a century this pol icy has secured to us peace abroad and tranquillity at home. With a standing army kept jealously at the lowest point, and with a navy adequate mere ly to the protection of our commercial interests, we have increased from a fourth to a flrst-rate power. We are Ices in danger of attack than we ever were before. Yet there has arisen among us a class of politicians who cherish contempt for the traditions and principles of Americanism; who tell ua that the republic of the United States is a mistake; who point to the great nations of Europe as exemplars, and v/ho tell us that we must pattern our policies hereafter upon theirs. They have succeeded in securing a naval establishment beyond all reason able needs and a heavy charge upon the taxpayer. They are engaged in a deadly grapple with the advocates of Americanism to secure the annexation of distant islands, principally in order that a reason may exist for multiply ing ships and building fortifications. They corae now to the final article of tbelr programme, which is to force i».por> the American people a vast standing army, utterly useless to us and serving no other conceivable pur pose except to threaten popular liberty. Ymcrican history today is traveling backward and is decrying and kicking over with contempt the principles and policies that were as dear as life itself to the forefathers of the nation. How far shall this be allowed to proceed? Have we indeed already grown so old or so weak that we are ready to con fess the American system a failure, and to plan for this country of ours a. future upon no nobler idea than servile imitation of the monarchies that we affect to despise while we grovel at their feet? CONGRATULATIONS. We wish to congratulate certain of our enterprising contemporaries, and particularly the esteemed Pionesr Press, upon the celerity with which they get around to giving their sub scribers the news of the day as pre viously printed in the Globe. On Friday last the Globe published two articles of great public moment and interest. One of these gave the con tents of the ordinance which had been circulated privately among the mem bers of the council, proposing to grant new and impossible concessions to the street railway company; the other an nounced the candidacy for governor of Judge Collins, of the supreme court. They were great items of news, and of course they were published in the Globe exclusively. Equally of course they were, to the papers that did not get them, "sensational" and untrue. This was on Friday, the 14th. In the Pioneer Press of Tuesday, the 18th, we observe an editorial discussion of the tenrsa of the street railway ordi nance, concerning which it finds that "typewritten copies have been passing from hand to hand among the mem bers of the council." We find on an other page of the same issue a special dispatch from St. Cloud which an nounces Judge Collins* candidacy. It remarks that the G1 o b c's publica tion was "undoubtedly unauthorized," but it quotes from the St. Cloud Jour nal-Press an article which "is consid ered as almost equivalent to an an nouncement of Collins' candidacy by his friends." It is pleasing to us to see such great strides taken in jour nalism that not more than four days need elapse between the time when the Globe publishes the news and the time when its worthy, but rather rheumatic contemporaries find it out. Some of them, indeed, were longer than this in discovering the facts stat ed by the Globe about the Clough- Van Sant deal. But they do eventual ly come out of the trance, and then the paper writes a beautiful little para graph of admiration of itself and frames it in its own columns, and ev erything is lovely once more. THE WAY OP GOVERNMENTS. No government ever interferes for good or for evil in private business affairs without demonstrating, before it gets through, its unfitness for this field of operation. The status cf the proposition to send a relief expedition to the Klondike shows this up in a rather amusing light. The clamor for relief to starving miners in Alaska was raised last fall almost as soon as the passes Into the country were closed. Nobody knew whether there were starving miners there or hot. Every body did know that, if there were, they had gone there of their own accord, fully warned of the risks they ran and prepared to take the consequences; and that it was no more the business of the government to help them out than to pay off mortgages for people who had invested too heavily in real estate dur ing the boom. The sentimental argu ment prevailed, however, and prepara tions for relief went forward in that heavy and circumlocutory manner which is characteristic of all govern mental movements. Bids for supplies were called for and the clumsy ma chinery of WOchington put in motion to get the expedition under way. It was known, of course, that the govern ment was just as powerless to find en trance into Alaska during the close of the winter season as is an individual. It was therefore proved on the face of it that, if this expedition ever set out at all, it would enter Alaska at the same time with the early spring rush of gold hunters. By no possibility could it reach those whom it was intended to serve until either their needs were satisfied or they had passed beyond all earthly necessities whatever. We find now, by the latest reports, contained in a special dispatch to the Globe from Victoria, that parties re cently arriving from the north state that the situation at Dawson City is by no means desperate. This corrobo rates information gained from all other sources. It is to tha effect that, while provisions are scarce and food is high, nobody is likely to die of hunger. Simul taneously with this we have, as we might expect, a dispatch from Wash ington saying that "arrangements for the departure of the government ex pedition for the Klondike are being pushed." This is an epitome of the whole wretched business of trying to shove upon the government duties and responsibilities with which it has no proper concern. It gets into motion about six months after private initia tive would have been well under way, and when it once does move it goes on moving in a blind, stupid and ponder ous way, without any apparent intelli gent directing power, until some ex ternal force comes in to stop it. The whole business of relief for Klondikers is an obvious humbug, answering only the purpose of finding one other spot in which the federal treasury may be tapped for the benefit of ambitious in dividuals and enterprising contractors. _^^k»- "But John P.

Lincoln's Speech at Gettysburg the Platform of the Potato Governor. BUFFALO, N. V., Jan. 18.— Gov. Hazen S. Pingree, of Michigan, was the guest of honor at the January dinner of the Independent club at the Ellicott Square club house this evening. He delivered an address on "What Con stitutes Party Loyalty." Gov. Pingree at the outset quoted Abraham Lincoln's declaration spoken on the field of Gettysburg: "That gov ernment of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth." "No man," said the governor, "or set of men have since that time been au thorized to modify those words or their meaning. These words of Lincoln lie deeply engraved upon the hearts of the masses, without regard to party. This great patriot enunciated, as good Republican doctrine, that the people should not be feared, for the people are fair and honorable and only demand equal rights and opportunities for all, bua special privileges for none. It is the duty of such of us as believe in the principles laid down by the great Republican loader to follow as he point ed the way." Gov. Pingree said It was the mis fortune of great parties that to them flock those who desire to enrich them selves by legislation. The masses ot the Republican party would be only too glad to get rid of such elements. "I make in my mind," said he, "no difference between the integrity of the common people in one party or an other. It is party leadership which is most always at fault." The governor pointed to the vast increase of the in fluence of wealth indicating legislation and government policies. He asserted that "Grover Cleveland disrupted his party in doing the bidding of the money syndicates, which made enoi mous profits out of the scandalous dond deal." He added: "Today all the trusts ar.d monopolies which are bleed ing the country have taken refuge un~ der the wing of the Republican party because they fear the Democratic party, which has kicked them out. In my own state the railroads which have never paid their share of the taxes, have been a faithful ally of the Republi can party. I have had something to do with the efforts of the people of Michi gan to get a readjustment of railroad taxation and rates, and every railroad attorney and railroad doctor, every lit tle country newspaper editor who has a pass, every politician who hopes for financial favors to help re-elect him, is out of breath crowing 'Pingree is not a Republican.' They cry this because I was elected on the Republican ticket by a majority of 86,000, and they do n»t want me re-elected. King Boodle cries, 'I am the party and there is none besides me.' t 'I say that arty so-called Republican who thinks that the interests of rail roads, trusts, monopolies or syndicates are of more importance than the inter ests of the average man had better get out of the Republican party in Michigan, for I am going to fight it out on Lincoln's platform, no matter what they call me. The monopolist, the fran chise grabber, the lobbyist, are all ex treme partisans, and when any one op poses their schemes they cry, 'You are attacking the party.' When they elect ■ themselves to office by force of money, they ascribe it to divine intervention of providence In behalf of the nation and its honor. The masses of the Re publican party do not want to stand sponsor for those agencies which are playing the mischief with this coun try's welfare any more than the Demo crats do. We have, how r ever, some so called leaders in our party who have n-ore faith in the power of money than in the power of the voting masses. "Your membership is composed of men of all parties. I believe in inde pendence in politics; I am somewhat of an independent myself. Those cf us who believe in government, for the peo ple should not hesitate to denounce men of our own party who would make our selves only a government for the bene fit of the almighty dollar and the pos sessors thereof." >«=»■ HIGH FORESTER HERE. Oronhyutekha, Head of the Order, Meets Local Men. Oronhyatekha, a full-blooded Mohawk In dian, who, in spite of his aboriginal descent, is still one of the most intelligent and well posted business men in Toronto, where he has for some years engaged in the practice nf medicine, was at the Ryan yesterday. His visit to St. Paul was made for the purpas3 of talking over with some members of hig order the feasibility»of establishing two high courts of the Independent Order of Foresters in Minnesota. He is supreme high chief ranger of the order and at the meeting of the state Foresters at Winona last year, the Du luth men had a candidate for high chief ranger, namely N. B. Morri3on. Morrison was defeated, and ever since the Duluth men and some of their neighbors have been clam oring for an independent court of their own, the other having its headquarters in St. Paul and Minneapolis. The Duluth contingent came down yesterday and with the St. Paul men talked over the whole affair with tho supreme ranger. The local contingent was made up of the officers of the high court, as fo'.lows: O, H. O'Neill, high chief ranger, St. Paul; J. C. j O'Keefe, junior past high chief ranger, Min neapolis; F. C. Irwin. Belle Plalne. high chief ranger; A. E. Reuillard, high secretary, Min neapolis; E. N. Young, high treasurer, Minne apolis; E. O. Cosman, high physician, Minne apolis; J. H. Barnard, chief counselor, St. Paul. Oronhyatekha left last night for the East, and will make known b>is decision on the matter in the near future. Hiti Party of Maccabees. Th.c members of Unity Tent No. 8, Knights of the Maccabees, gave an enjoyable dan cing party at Odd Fellows' hall, Fifth and Wabasha streets, last evening, at which 225 couples were present. The affair was the first social hoi) given by the order this season, and as such was a pleasant success. The hall wes prettily decorated with American flags and colored bunlng, and to the stratus of n. mandolin orchestra the guests gave tneiiTSelves wholly to the pleasure of tho waltz, the rol'icking two-step or more digni fied minuet. The 1 jst.i of the evening wero solicitous for the enjoyment of each guost, and Icoked well to the enter ainnient of all.

MOXFORT'S NAME FREE LY' MEXTIO.\ED FOR NEXT STATE REGENT. FEDERATION OF, .MUSICAL CLUBS. Representatives* <jf the Amateur Or- KHiil/utioiiH Mee^t in Chicago Xext Week-Looa|. Social News. The ranks of the Daughters of the American Revolution of the state are slowly dissolving themselves into two distinct divisions, and the outcome of local D. A. R. affairs at the next na tional congress in Washington is be ing watched with no small amount of interest. It is not understood, how ever, that as yet there is any serious rupture among the Daughters, only opinions are divided as to who should be the next state regent, and the indi cations are that this honor will fall to Mrs. D. A. Monfort, of St. Paul, if she will accept the responsibilities en tailed by such a position. The other prominent candidate and the one fa vored by the retiring regent is Mrs. Ell Torrance, of Minneapolis, who Is regent of one of the chapters in that city and who makes, it Is said, an ex cellent presiding officer. There have been several other names mentioned, but none have received serious consid eration, and these two ladies will be the centers of interest during the next few weeks in D. A. R. circles. The Minneapolis chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, of Minneapolis, has instructed its delegates, it is re ported, to vote for Mrs. Monfort at Washington, and at least one of the lo cal chapters will do the same by its delegates. The Duluth chapter, it is said, may take the same action. Many of the local daughters think that the state regency should go to Minneap olis, as St. Paul has held it so long. Others, on the other hand, seem to consider Mrs. Monfort the most suit able candidate. It is held by these that Mrs. Monfort would bring a dig nity to the position a less experienced woman would not. Mrs. Monfort made a successful regent for the St. Paul chapter for two or more years and re tired with dignity to make way for Mrs. George Squires, who is regent of that chapter at present. It seems prob able that both local chapters will throw their votes for the St. Paul candidate. Both local chapters meet Jan. 25 to appoint delegates to the national con gress. The St. Paul chapter will meet in the parlors of Dayton Avenue church, and the Nathan Hale chapter meets at the home of Mrs. Me Williams, the regent. Mrs. T. T. Smith will read a paper at this meeting. From this chapter the following officers have re signed: Mrs. Charles E. Smith, his torian, replaced by Mrs. A. T. Hall; Mrs. Rufus Davenport, recording secre tary, replaced by Mrs. Walter J. Stev ens; Mrs. B. S. Cowen, corresponding secretary, replaced by Mrs. Walter J. Stevens, pro tern. • ♦ * Chicago, Jan. 18.— In Steinway hall next Tuesday und Wednesday, there will be a convention of delegates repro. sentiiig the amateur musical clubs of the entire country, for the purpose of effecting a permanent federation. The object is to stimulate musical culture and to enable cities and organizations unable to pay grand opera prices to secure by co-operation, the services of distinguished musical artists. The movement originated at the musical congress of the world's fair and was indorsed last year by the Musical Teachers' National association. One hundred delegates are expected and many have arrived. There is no self seeking candidate for office in the per manent organization. Many Eastern delegates are understood to favor Mrs. Theodore Sutro, of New York, for presi dent, while the middle and West would prefer Mrs. Uhl, of Grand Rapids Mich., wife of the former ambassador to Germany. Mrs. Chandler Starr, of Rockford, 111.", is also a favorite. Mrs Russell R. Dorr, of St. Paul, Minn., and Mrs. J. H. Webster, of Cleveland, are also supported. The permanent federation will be governed by a national executive board and its chief, business officer will be a national secretary, who will supply artists at their own rates on club terms to the clubs in the federation. The convention will be under the hospitality i of the Chicago Amateur Musical club, which consist's of 500 women represent ing conspicuously the highest intellec tual and artistic life of the city. Among the widely known, active and associate members are: Mrs. Theodore Thomas, wife of the orchestral conductor; Mrs. Genevra Bishop Johnstone, the oratorio singer; Mrs. F. S. Coolidge, Mrs. George B. Carpenter, the manager; Mrs. Alex ander Sullivan, the writer; Mrs. Clar ence Eddy, wife of the organist; Mrs. Clarence Peck, Mrs. Regin-Watson and Fannie Bloomfield Zeisler, pianists; Mrs. John M. Clark. Mrs. William S. Warren is president, and Mis 3 Kathe rine D. Krelgh, in charge of the con vention, is secretary. The public and press will be excluded from the con vention. Debate will be animated, but the outcome is regarded as certain to be beneficial to the amateur musical organizations of the country, whose membership approximates 20,000, large ly dominating society wherever they exist. • • * The Schubert club musicale this aft ernoon promises much that is attrac tive to musicians.

The programme consisted of a two-act comedy drama, "Andy Blake," by Boueicault, and interlude of musical num bers, and a one-act farce, entitled '■His Two Janes." The cast in the first production was composed of Albert J. Ryan, Edward Waters, Edward Corcoran, John Ward, Mis? Anna McXicrney, .Miss Mary Wheeler and .Miss Stella Winsor. Each characterization was well handled, Mr. Ward being par ticularly felicitous as Andy, the happy Irian lad. Several vocal selections by Mrs. Clark were well received. The second dramatic number was of a lighter kind, with only the element of fun for a foundation, and as pre sented by Messrs. Ward, Ryan and Waters served to thoroughly amuse the audience. » • « The Woman's Political Equality club will meet this afternoon at 1 o'clock at the home of Mrs. C. S.

Warner was making threats because the: senator had refused to help War ner secure Capt. Harries' place. Sena tor Davis is reported to have said: "Do you pretend to tell me that the chances for my return to the United States senate depend upon my securing a place for Warner in preference to some other man whom I think is more en titled to it?" "I will show Senator Davis a thing or two about political finesse, that he hasn't learned yet." Murmurs Warner. Will he? The positive announcement in tl* Globe of last week that Judge Col lins is willing to serve the party in the coming contest, if called upon to do so, exercised the machine. They hoped that some denial of it would appear somewhere, but nothing of the kind has come to hand. The St. Cloud Journal- Press. Judge Collins' home paper, ad mits its correctness, but says the story was not authorized by Judge Collins. Of course it wasn't. The Globe said it wasn't authorized, but went farther and said it would not meet with a de nial from any of Judge Collins friends. And it hasn't. On the other hand it is understood it has moved them to activity, and the result may be appar ent in a short time. The Pioneer Press, nearly a week after the news, is begin ning to print verifications of the story, but its local columns haven't shown any signs of awakening yet. The Pio neer, like another Republican paper, seemed to be stunned with the Clough- Van Sant anti-Davis movement. • • • The Journal, of Minneapolis, thinks that Collins' chances are not so good as William Henry Eustis'. But Col. lins' friends look at it just the other way. They cannot figure where Eustis can secure anything more than his own district, and beyond that will be with out strength in the convention." Clough, however, says Hennepin will be for Van Sant when the time comes. • • * The Clough slate has been scratched a bit, according to report. It was orig inally planned to put Ed Weaver on the ticket as lieutenant governor, but Weaver was reported as being so hos tile to the machine's work that even Gov'. Clough was afraid to suggest such a thing to Weaver. When the latter was at the state house attending the annual meeting of the state historical society a few days ago he blew past the governor's door without looking in. William Angell, the clerk, an expert on frosts, felt the change in the- atmos phere at once, and remarked: "Wade, Is one of those windows open?" "No, sir, Mr. Angell," replied the mes senger. "Well, there's a lot of cold coming from somewhere." Late that afternoon when Weaver knew it was after the governor's office hours, he dropped in and said to An gell: "Well William, how are you?" William told him. Then the Second district man buttoned up his coat and walked out. He didn't ask about the hoalth of a whole lot of other people. Angell didn't say It, but his face indi cated that he felt like remarking as Weaver left: "I think it's wrong the way they have treated that man." » • • Gov. Clough had a couple of callers yesterday. One was Senator Miller, of Luverne, and the other is .supposed to be the slate's candidate for attorney general. That is, Charles C. Houpt, of Fergus Falls. Mr. Houpt was a candi date before the last convention and, if the machine succeeds, will find easier sailing this time than in July, 1896. It seems to be the impression that he has bo-en let in with the combination. It was first supposed that Ben Smith, of Mankato, was the man.

WHR I|! TEN WEEKS MR. MORGAN'S THREAT IN CASE THE ANNEXATION' TREATY IS DEFEATED. ADDRESS IN INSTALLMENTS, ANOTHER DAY IX EXECUTIVE SES SIO.\ OCCUPIED DV THE ALA BAMA SENATOR. HAWAII FUO.H A MILITARY VIEW. Its Importance Urged as a Reason for Speedy and Favorable Ac tion by the Senate. WASHINGTON, Jan. IS.— Senator Morgan occupied the attention of the senate during the entire time of the executive session today in the presenta tion of his views on the subject of the annexation of the Hawaiian islands. This was the second installment of the senator's speech, and when he conclud ed a few minutes after 5 o'clock he had not then reached the end. He spoke for about three hours today, and his speech was a general presenta tion of the importance of the islands to the United States. He dwelt especial ly upon the military importance of the islands, quoting Gen. Scofleld and Capt. Mahan at length, in support of his position that the islands were a natural outpost for the United States and necessary to the proper protec tion of our Western coast and of our general commerce in case of war. Mr. Morgan predicted that, if the United States did not take advantage of the present opportunity to acquire the islands, there would be war be tween this country and some other power within ten weeks. It was not, he said, within the bounds of possibil ities, in view of the present European competition for territory in Asia, that the Hawaiian islands should be allow ed to remain Independent for any length of time after the United States should finally announce a determina tion not to make them a part of American territory. "Does the senator from Alabama mean to say," interrupted Senator Pet tigrew, "that the Hawaiian govern ment would voluntarily seek the pro tection of some other power and thus forego the great advantage those isl ands now enjoy in their reciprocity ar rangement with the United States, which results in our remitting to them annually not less than $6,000,000?" To this question Senator Morgan re plied that the reciprocity treaty had been negotiated for the purpose of giv ing this country cheap sugar. He said that it had been of greater benefit to the United States than it had been to Hawaii, because it had accomplished its purpose of making cheaper one of our great commodities and one of the necessities of every household. "We want," he said, "not only the sugar from Hawaii, but cheaper coffee as well, and that and many other neces sary articles could be grown in those islands." The senator displayed a number of large maps, from which he contended that the islands were in the roadway of commerce between our Western coast and the Orient, and said that all ships, whether laden with the articles of com merce or the munitions of war, must necessarily pass them in going to and fro between these countries and the Asiatic coast, and thus, he said, the na tion which controls Hawaii will control the commerce of the East. In closing, he said that failure to annex the isl ands meant inevitable bloodshed, and the responsibility for that bloodshed would rest upon the senate of the Unit ed States for its failure to perform its duty at this critical hour in the his tory of the two countries. URGENCY BILL PASSED. Open Sesaictn of the Senate in the Mil in Routine. WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.— Today's open ses sion of the senate was brief. Practically tho only business accomplished aside from the routine proceedings was the passage of the urgent deficiency appropriation bill. The measure, as finally passed by the senate, car ries $1,913,810. Tho Teller resolution, provid ing that bonds of tho United States may bo paid in standard silver dollars, was favorably reported by a majority of the finance com mittee, and notice was given that it would bo called up at an early date. An effort vn\s made to fix a time for the final vote on tho pendirfg census bill but it was abandonod until tomorrow. TELLER SILVER RESOLUTION Favorably Acted Upon by the Sen ate Committee. WASHINGTON, Jan. 18.— The senate on finance voted today to report the Teller resolution, declaring for the pay ment of the national bonds in silver as well as gold. The vote stood 8 to 5. The resolution ia practically the same as the Stanley Matthews resolution adopted some years ago. The vote was pp. ceded by a discussion which was generally participated in by the mem bers of the committee. The general tenor of the discussion was along the same lines as that of a week ago, the Republicans contending that the reso lution was useless and would be de void of results and the Democrats and their allies taking the opposite posi tion. The Republicans especially de precated the agitation of the financial question at the present time, saying there was no effort, and liftely to be none, to pass a general financial meas ure through the senate committing the country more definitely to the gold standard. To this the Democrats re plied by citing the efforts of Secretary Gage and ex-Senator Edmunds to have congress take up the question in a way which looked to placing the country definitely upon a gold basis. They c in tended that it was the evident purpose of the administration to secure legis lation in the interest of the single stardard, whenever opportunity offer ed, and avowed their purpose of .secur ing a declaration in favor of a double standard such as was proposed in this resolution, if possible to do so, in or der to show that there had been no change in sentiment. If, they said, the business interests were to be injured by the agitation of the financial ques tion at this time, the blame should be placed upon the Republican administra tion and not upon themselves. When some of the Republican" senators were reminded that they had voted the reso lution when presented by Hon. Stan ley Matthews, twenty years ago, they j admitted such to be the fact, but raid in explanation of their present attitude, that conditions had changed. Senator Wclcott di(3 not vote with his Repub lican friends, but heartily supported the resolution, saying he would vote for it every time it came up. DOLE'S KECErTIOX. It Will Begin Officially When lie KcaoliPH Culca;g<>< WASHINGTON. Jan. 18.—Arrange ments are making for the entertain ment of President Dole, of Hawaii, on a scale befitting his rank as the chief magistrate of a friendly nation. It has been decided that he shall be re gat (led as the nation's cruest, and that our government shall bear the expense of hl3 enU-rtalnuient while in Washing- ton. The formal visit paid to President Dole yesterday by Gen. Shafter, at San Francisco, was not by direction from Washington, but it is said the call was required by the army regulations, al though in making- it the general dis played a faculty of remembrance that is well regarded by the officials here, *" who had had no opportunity to provJ for a reception. President McKinley has decided to have the official tour of the Hawaiian president begin at Chicago, and at that point in his overland tour, he will be met by the representatives of the presi dent and of the United States govern ment. IfO CHANGE WASTED. Cabinet stands !>>• it* Former Cuban Pol It- y. WASHINGTON. Jan. is.— Such Infor mation as the state department has i - ceived as to the situation in Havana is confirmatory of the unofficial dis patches and shows that quiet reigns In the city, and that the impression of the officials that the riotous spirit had either exhausted Itself for the being or had been completely sup pressed by the strong hand of authori ty, is justified. The aituation briefly alluded to in tho cabinet meet ing today, but was not regarded warranting any change in the attitude of our government. Minister dc Lome has written the state department de nying the truth of the report that the customs officers of Havana have thrown obstacles in the way of the landing of supplies sent from the Unit ed States for the Cuban sufferers. The state department is satisfied that, re gardless of any difficulty that m have been experienced, there will no trouble from now on In promptly • , placing in Gen. Lee's possession for immediate distribution any suppll that reach Havana harbor in the ular manner. DOLE COMING EAST. Hawaiian Party Will Leave Sun Francisco Today. SAX FRANCISCO, Jan. 18. — Presi dent Sanford B. Dole, of the Hawaiian republic, has decided to resume' his journey to Washington tomorrow after noon. The party had Intended to re- " main in San Francisco for some time, as President Dole is well acquainted here and wanted to renew old fri ships, but dispatches receivi >l by him from Minister Hatch at Washington advising him to reach the capital as scon as possible have changed his plans. The Hawaiian president and his wife and attendants will gn by \\ . Chicago and New York, stoppli day in each of those cities. • i:lmii Information.

Xo Disorder In Any of the Spinning; IV liters. BOSTON, Mass. Jan. 18.— Grim de termination on the part of both sides, coupled with a defined Issue between employer and employe as well as prac tically an absence of any si^n of demonstration, were tho features of the second day in the greal strike in the cotton industry- As yesterday, in tertst centered almost entirely In Ih. -strike at New Bedford, wiiere the dis tuibances of yesterday led to the belief that a similar demonstration flight be attempted today. Nothing of the kind occurred and the strikers strengthened their cause by making the question of lines a definite Issue with the mill owners. It is just possible that an agreement on this gui stlon may lead to some satisfactory ending of the . whole matter in that < ity, although at present such an outcome seems distant. The matter of financial support to the strikers was generally discussed, ncjronly in New Bedford, but In I'.idde ford, Saco and L.e\viston, Maine, and v. hile the union strikers seem to have no anxiety regarding the next three months the non-union men who are out fear that they may not receive suffi cient support. In Fall River the superintendent of the King Philip mill, where there is a strike, went so far as to agreeing to remedy union grievances, but other, than this there appears no breach in the line of the manufacturers during tiie. day. GREAT MOTHER LODE. Discovery olf It Confirmed by Hc toriiiny. Klondlkers. SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 18.— The news brought by the treasure-laden miners whoh aye arrived from Klondike on the steamer Gorona, is importani chief ly that it is confirmatory of the dis covery of the great mother lode. Welch, Coffin and Burt are authority foo 'the statement that, the original" strike was made at the upper end of claim No. 30 El Dorado, while two strangers, one a.t No. 27. and another yet lower down, were subsequently lo cated. Throughout the district the dis covery is accepted as assurance of th(; permanency of the district as a rich gold mining field. As to the placer diggings, they continue rich. Powder creek, an affluent of Quartz rn-ek, has has been having a boom, pans of $3.7f> and $4 being a common tiling. Of course the stream was located as soon as the first important discovery wan made. All gold creeks show pans of $10 to $100, while the miners on Hun ker creek, Henderson, Dominion, th • Big Salmon and the Stewart all de clare themselves satisfied with the prospect. One of the first men to stake ground on El Dorado, and the very last man out of the Klondike country, is Andrew Olsen, knows as "the big Swede." He is notable as being the owner of the claim on which the biggest Klondike nugget has yet been found. The lump of gold was valued at $536. Replying to a request for an estimate of the winter's gold dust output of the camp, Joe Campbell, one of the return ing miners, said: "We have done a great deal cf figuring on that, and it now appers that the output, notwith standing the scarcity of fo:>d and light, will be from $12,000,000 to $15,000,000 " Dr. H. H. f.ittlefield, of Skaguay, came in the Corona. He has just close 1 a contract with the Canadian govern ment to pack provisions to Lake Ben nett for twenty-five cents a pound. L.. L.
