Private Corporation Lawyer, Assisting Attorney General

of the $23,615.01 Already Paid Out for Special As
isstance—State Officers Anticipate a Deficit.
Though the legislature, at the request
of the state administration, first set
aside $25,000 and then an additional
$10,000 as a fund to be utilized by the
attorney general in pushing the state's
light against the Northern Securities
company, the major portion of this
$35,000 has already been drawn from
the state treasury and the custodians
of the fund do not hesitate in declaring
that a deficit is expected.
Fearing that the press of routine
vrork would handicap the attorney gen
eral in pushing the fight against the
go-called merger the legislature appro
priated the $35,000 to enable the state's
attorney to secure any outside assist
ance he might deem necessary. The

"WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 12.—The
house today for more than five hours
considered the legislative, executive
and judicial appropriation bill, but
reached no conclusion. A variety of
topics, Including Panama and the tar
iff, was flißDUßuod. Mr. Adams (Rep.,
Pa.), in referring to the dinner recently
given in New York city at which Mr.
Olney spoke, made reference to the re
sult of the recent New York municipal
contests as a victory won by catering
to those who desire free license in rum
and immorality.
This statement was resented by Mr.
Fitzgerald (Dem., N.-Y.) in a vigorous
speech. In giving the reasons responsi
ble In his opinion for the Democratic
victory in New York city he warmly
assailed the Low administration.
When the item in the bill providing
for the expenses of the civil service
commission was reached, Mr. Hepburn
(Rep., Iowa) expressed his opposition to
the civil service system as it now ex
ists and said he desired to amend the
bill by striking out the paragraph pro
viding for the expenses of the commis
sion. He declared:
"I believe it is the deliberate judg
ment of every member of this house,
save perhaps a score, that we are
wasting the public money and are In
pursuit of a phantom when we at
tempt to Improve the civil service
through the instrumentality of that
which we call the civil service commis
He added that he believed it to be the
judgment of every man that has given
serious consideration to it that this
scheme of so-called improvement is a
failure. "With the utmost respect for
all the gentlemen now before me, I
have no hesitation in saying that it is
their deference to a supposed existing
public opinion that prevents them from
asserting themselves and wiping out
this fraud upon the public."

Globe Special Washington Service,
1417 G Street.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 12.—The
next national convention of the Demo
cratic party will be held in St. Louis,
July 6, and there are no serious heart
burnings over the result, even in Chi
cago. Tonight the best of feeling pre
vails among the members of the com
mittee and the most thoughtful of them
have taken courage and believe that
the party will enter upon the next
campaign in better shape than for
many years.
The decision In favor of St. Louis
was not expected. Up to two hours
before the vote was taken it looked
as if Chicago would win easily, but
a combination was effected between the
advocates of St. Louis and New York
and accordingly the convention went
to the Mound city.
New York was at no time seriously

tion of the delegation which came over
from that city, that it should be. This
was evident from the fact that no cash
proposition accompanied the invitation.
Its offer, in the language of Senator
McCarren, was simply to "Pay the
legitimate and Incidental expenses of
the convention." St. Louis presented
a bona fide offer with the cash to back
it and accordingly the decision was
in favor of that city. Chicago was
rejected because it was apparent that
the Hearst boomers wanted it to go
there and because its money propo
sition had a string tied to it.

Why Chicago Was Shunned.
"WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 12.—The
Democratic national committee today
furnished a surprise, selecting St.
Louis as the place for holding the na
tional convention in 1904. The date
fixed for the convention Is Wednes
day, July 6, at 11 o'clock. Previous to
the meeting of the committee it seemed
a foregone conclusion that Chicago
would be selected, but political exi
gencies entered into the situation and
a majority of the committee voted for
St. Louis.
For some hours previous to the meet
ing of the committee there was talk in
the corridors and among Democratic
leaders that the convention in Chicago
might be subject to the influence of a
strong movement and a strong news
paper influence In favor of some par
ticular candidate. Mr. Knapp, of the
St. Louis Republic, hinted at this in his
speech, by saying that the convention,
if held in St. Louis, would be welcom
ed by an absolutely fair press.
The committee meeting covered con
siderable discussion of politics and the
claims of various candidates were ad
vocated by their partisans, but nothing
like favoring any candidate appeared
in the committee proceedings.
William J. Bryan, when the commit
tee had concluded its labors, appeared,
but his visit was without any apparent
political significance. He did not come
to the hotel until after the committee
had about completed its business. He

Special to The Globe.
NEW YORK, Jan. 12.—Among the

able on contract.
There is one feature, however, which
prominent interests hope will ultimate
ly be included. The committee did
not recommend any basis for the de
livery of Manitoba or bonded grain on
contract. It was explained that this
has been found impracticable owing to
United States customs regulations and
lack of storage room. Several mem
bers today said it was highly im
