The Teller resolution was rejected by the house of representatives, Monday, by a vote of 182 to 133. The republican con greaemen, with one exception, voted against the resolution. Two democrats voted aftalost it. While some parts of Maine were get ting temperatures of 30 below zero, news comes from Australia of 124 In the shade. "And this Is a world having rev olutions on its own axis, and coming various games of that sort." A paesenRer train was ditched on the Maine Central railroad, near Orono, Me last Saturday afternoon, causing four deaths and the Injury of over 30 persons. It Is thought that the spreading of the rails was the cause of the disaster. The bank suspensions In the United States In 1897 numbered only 105 against 197 In 181)0 and 698 In 1893. The liabili ties of the banks suspending In 1897 amounted to t20.094.n0U agalnat $56,079, 370 In 1890 and $170,295,678 In 1893. The strike of the operatives In the cot ton mills of New Bedford, Maes., and elsewhere remains about the same. The strikers are having trouble among them elves, the non-union strikers claiming that they are not receiving their just pro portion of the strike money. John Addison Porter, secretary to the president and proprietor of the Hartford Post, the New Haven Leader announces Is a candidate for governor of Connecti cut. Bee. Porter made a hard fight for the nomination before the last election, and has strong backing in the state, and he will be a hard candidate to defeat for the nomination this year. The big storm of the first of the week, in the vicinity of Boston, wis the most severe the city has experienced In twenty Ave years. Wires were down and all branches or business, and the street car and steam railroad traffic were completely paralysed Monday night and Tuesday morning. Many horses were killed by stepping upon the ends of telephone wires which had fallen across the trolly lines The storm was the most severe along the coast, and the loss to life and shipping at sea will be very large. Charles . Stacy, postmaster of North Wllbraham, and for many years a promi nent eltlaen of the town, dropped dead at his home at 6.15 o'clock Monday evening without a momeut's warning that death was so near. He left his store about five minutes before 0, and after attendlr.g to few duties at his stable went into the house and stepped to the sink In the kitchen td wash his hands and suddenly fell to the floor dead. He had been In his usual health and death was due to heart failure. Mr. Stacy was appointed poet- master last October. He kept a store and market and was a man of Integrity and worth. He also held the offices of town oierx ana treasurer ana naa served as selectman. He was a member of Grace union church at North Wllbraham. He leaves a widow and a brother, James Stacy, who lives In Connecticut. . - - . Senator Converse, as secretary of the tate commission appointed by the gen eral assembly of 1897 to Inquire Into the income and expenditures of the state, is having difficulty In obtaining the Inform Uon desired from Clerk Anketell of the superior court and other clerks of Ne Haven county. It Is said that Clerk Anketell Is receiving legally more than $10,000 per annum, more than double the salary received by the governor. Ex Oov. T. M. Waller, who Is a member of the same oommleelon, says "that the re. fuMl of these clerks to tell the truth would do them no good and might do them harm, and any attempt or effort on the part of clerks to conceal the fact only Increases the appetite of the public for the knowledge it seeks."

I - -: ' itiJfljiKi 1 t ay WaahJnatoa Latter. Washington, Jan. SI, 1897. The president and the leaders of the several parlies in congress are Just now engaged In playing the old and fascinating game of politics. The silver men have been making their plays with the object of making the congressional campaign a square fight between silver and gold, and for a time the administration appeared to be willing to aid them In bringing that re sult about. But there has been a change. and now the administration has made plala its purpose of sticking to the inter national bimetallism plank of the St. Louis platform, at the same time declar ing its intention to maintain the present gold standard until international bimet allism is secured. Of course, the silver men say that this is merely an attempt to be fuddle the issue. The senate, which is controlled by sliver men, fired its first broadside when It adopted the Teller reso lution. It was at first intended that this resolution should be quietly smothered in the house, but uoon consideration, the republican leaders decided that as an off set to the aotlon of the senate, the resolu tion must be defeated by a vote of the house, and that action was taken today. The silver republican senators have de cided that the country must have some explanation of their support of the Teller resolution and they will be given through speeches on the floor of the senate. So a fresh flood of financial oratory may be ex pected, as it is not Hkely that the other side will allow the talking to be monopo II zed by the explainers. The Cuban situation In congress was eased for the time to a marked extent by the sending of that warship to Havana, but the advocates of action are getting restless again under the numerous reports that the warship was merely a trick to gain further time, and they may start some sort of movement any day. There Is a disposition on the part of a considerable number of senators who strongly favor some positive action on the part of this government in behalf of Cuba not to allow a vote to be taken on the treaty for the annexation of Hawaii until the administration has made a plainer showing of Its Cuban policy. Nothing positive has been agreed upon, but it is significant that the senators who areagl tatlng the matter are In political accord with President McKlnley and in favor of the annexation of Hawaii, but are im patient at the slowness with which the ad ministration's Cuban policy is developing. nd anxlouB to hurry it up a little. An Intimation of their feelings has been given the president. The senate has so often shown its sympathy for Cuba that there Is little doubt of the success of a motion to postpone Indefinitely the consideration of the Hawaiian treaty, If It vere made in connection with a statement that it was done to help Cuba. President Dole, of Hawaii has now been In Washington nearly a week, the guest of the nation. On every Bide he Is praised for the discreet manner in which he is conducting himself, as well as for his modest and unassuming ways. Although he Is naturally deeply Interested in seeiog the annexation treaty ratified, he asks no ques Ions of the senators who call on him; contenting himself with giving full In for matlon in reply to questions asked him He shows wisdom, for the least bit of offlclousness oh his part In behalf of an nexatlon would be exploited by the anils as offensive meddlesomeness. The moral cowardice displayed by some senators In the votes upon the several amendments to the Teller resolution, de claring bonds payable In silver at the option of the government, which was adopted by a majority of fifteen, was not calculated to Increase the esteem felt for them by their constituents. Although to vote against the Teller resolution was in effect to endorse the present policy of paying bonds In gold, there were only twenty-four senators willing to go on re cord as voting for the Lodge substitute, which upeclfically stated that all bonds should be r aid In gold or its equivalent, while thirty-two voted against the Teller resolution. Can anybody blame the con stltuents of the six senators who voted against the Teller resolution and either declined to vote or voted against the Lodge substitute for calling them flnancl al halr-splltters. The congressional record, containing the votes in detail on the Teller resolution and the amendments offered thereto la likely to be carefully studied in nioie than one state, and to make trouble for more than one senator. The house has passed a bill appropriat ing $288,000 for the relief of the Book Publishing Company of the Southern Methodist church. This claim, which arose from losses by the company, lncl dental to the war, has been before con gress In one or another shape for twenty odd years. The bill passed by the house was a substitute for a senate, bill, whloh authorized the clalmauts to bring suit for the money in the Court of Claims, and will, therefore, go back to the senate. Hla Wlfa Won. A Georgia man, who was unpopular in his community, insured his life for 13,000. lie took the policy home to his wire and said : "Maria, here's a life insurance docu ment for $2,000." "Thank you, dear," said his wife. "How are you feeling today?" "Not well," he replied, "and I don't think I am long for this world, and I want to say to you that when I die it is my wish that you devote $1,000 of the money to defraying .my funeral ex penses." ' "Mercy on me," exclaimed the wife. "why do you want such an expensive xunerai?" "I'll explain. I'm perfectly satisfied tnat nobody will attend my funeral. and I want to hire people to go at so much a head. I'm going out today. and see what arrangements I can make for attendants on that forthcoming melan choly occasion. If they won't come gratis, why I'll just hire 'em an give 'em an order on you for the money." He went forth and at nightfall re turned with a dejected look. "Maria." be said, "it's nq use. You can have the whole $3,000. Just go to my funeral yourself." Atlanta Consti tution. air nairea people are becoming less numerous than formerly.

The common belief that horses in burning building are always panlo stricken and refractory, not recognizing their friends and refusing obedience to those who would rescue them, is not j itriotly true, as is proved by an incident related by a Companion contributor. The governor bad a fine black driving horse called Dexter. Although strong and spirited, Dexter was docile and obe dient and was petted and made much of by his master. As the governor kept no other horse, Dexter had the stable all to himself, with a clean stall and a fnll manger. The etable was near the bonse, and in addition to Dexter's stall and harness room contained a large carriage room, sn oat bin and a haymow over the stall. One night, when the family and the servants were away from home and the governor was in the house alone, ne was awakened by an ominous crackling and a bright glare on his chamber win dow, and before he could collect his sleepy wits ne was startled by a cry un like any sound he had ever heard. As he sprang out of bed the cry came again, and hastening to the window ho learned the cause. The stable was all ablaze, and out of the smoke and flames Dexter was calling bis master to his rescue. Pausing only to don coat and slippers, the governor rushed out The outside door of the stable leading into the stall was already blocked by the flames, and the only entrance to be had was through the carriage room, the harness room and a narrow entry leading past the oat bin. These rooms were on fire overhead, and burning wisps of hay and shingles were raining down in showers. Blinded by smoke, the governor stum bled along the roundabout way and. reaching the stall sooner than he expect ed, fell headlong down the steps against the excited animal, who was vainly tuKgina at his halter. Thinking some new danger threatened him, Dexter gave a mighty kiok that sent his master sprawling and lamed him lor a montn. 'Whoa, Dexter 1 snouted tne govern or. "JJon't you Know me, sirr oieaay now. old fellow, and we'll get oat of this." Recognizing bis master's voice, Dex ter turned his head toward the prostrate man and uttered a coaxing whinny quite unlike his previous load cries of alarm Knowing be need fear no more kicks. the governor crept up and cut the halter and, calling Dexter to follow him, limped blindly through the smoke filled entry and the two blazing rooms be yond, and close after him went Dexter, bis nose pressed against his master's shoulder, man and horse reaching the safe outer air together. "It was Dexter's obedience that saved him." said the governor. "I could not lead him. and had he shown the least obstinaoy or any less readiness to fol low at a word through all that round about, unaccustomed way I must have left him to perish in the flames, but he followed like a well trained soldier, and we escaped trom our Durning, nery furnace almost as safely as Shadracb, Mesbach and Abednego did from theirs." Youth's Companion. A Thorough Cor. There is no sentiment about Grizler. He is close and is not easily alarmed. It is not surprising, then, that the doctor assumed the utmost gravity when Griz ler called to present the case of his wife. "I'm greatly afraid," said the bus band, "that her mental equilibrium is disturbed. She is not like other women and not as she used to be. " "What are the symptoms?" "You may regard them of a negative character, doctor. To begin with, she never opens her fashion papers of late. ' "Bad! Badl Very bad I" "I feared as much. The woman who lives next door called last night and wore one of the most elegant hats I ev er saw. You know that 1 am not given to noticing such things. Mrs. Grizler never seemed to see it and said nothing about it after the caller had gone. " "Awful, exclaimed the doctor, "aw ful. I've known your wife, urizler, ev er since she was born. No one ever had a brighter mind or a happier disposi tion. I can't understand it. Used to be the life and beauty of every company she was ever in. Does she go out? "No, nor entertain. Never mentions tho theater, burns all invitations and is without the slightest interest in the so oial whirl. I would give half I'm worth to see her the girl I married. " "Done," snapped the doctor, and he wrote out the strangest prescription on record. It called for horses, carriages, fine raiment, jewels and a well filled purse. At the bottom was a receipt in fnll for $250, 000. There was no chance for Grizler to weaken, and now his wife is one of the most brilliant women in the swim. When she and the old doc tor meet, be winks and she whispers. "You dear old soul." Detroit Free Press. Sorry Accident to an In Strllan Young- Worn. a Train. The passengers on an early morning train connecting with this city were treated to a thoroughly enjoyable scene the other morning. At one of the small stations a young lady boarded the train She was dressed rather stylishly, but a veil covered a rather plain face. She witched down the aisle like a queen, She barely deigned to glance at the other passengers in the car, and when she did her nose rose perceptibly at the tip in a manner that spread the impres sion or contempt She carried a Boston bag and the air of a millionaire. There was but one seat vacant. This was beside a good looking, nicely dressed young man who was read ing a paper. When she came to this Beat, she flop ped down heavily and tossed her bag to the seat between herself and the young man. Two seconds later the young man leaped from bis seat, and a string of earnest words of doubtful origin fell from bis lips like vipers from the lips of tne young woman iu the fable. The startled passengers looked to see what bad caused this outburst. They saw, and then they laughed. The nice looking Boston bag contained an ordi nary, everyday working girl's lunch. One of its features was a jar of coffee, which had broken in the descent and flowed freely over the young man's new fall coat and tronsers. He went into the smoking car, swear ing profusely. She murmured a weak apology and spent ber time in mopping up tne seat. Brockton Enterprise. Parliamentary Humor. The London World gives this as an illustraa ion of the keen humor of Jus tice Darling: On one occasion, when Mr. Uladstone was beginning to give up the lead in the house of commons to Sir William Haroourt, it was noticed by the members that he left the bouse at the dinner hour and Sir William Haroourt led for the rest of the sitting. Mr. Darling one evening drove Sir Wil Ham to fury, on failing to elicit a defl nite answer to an inquiry, by casually observing in the course of bis speech "I bave noticed that lately the party opposite, adopting an ancient precedent. has set up a greater light to rule the day and m lesser liht to role the night Customs Id Haug-arj. j At the beginning of the century the magnate, or higher aristocracy of Hun gary, . lived in a semiregal .luxury. Their official court dress, which is Quite oriental in its richness and splendor, alone recalls the feudal period of the Hungarian aristocracy. Their country chateaux ate lordly in nothing but their hospitality. If a stranger drives up in his carriage to the entrance door of a Huugarian chateau, immediately and before any questions are asked con cerning the visitor's business, even be fore the master of the bouse has made is appearance, a legion of servants rush forward and carry the visitor's baggage to one of the half dozen rooms always ready to receive guests, invited or otherwise. Twelve o clock is the usual time for dinner, and four or five empty seats are always prepared for guests who might arrive. When the Hungarians wish to honor more partic ularly a guest, a succession of 15 or SO courses are served at dinner, but as the Magyars bave in everything the ut most respect for individual liberty, no guest is ever pressed to eat or drink. After dinner guests and hosts take a long drive over the estates of the cha teau or pay a visit to the neighboring castle. If it is a Sunday, a visit is made to the nearest village, where a peasant country dance is in full swing. Supper at the chateau takes place be tween 7 and 8, after which a dance is given or a whist party is indulged in. The next morning everything is silent in the house until 10 o'clock. Much as in England and Scotland, break fast is taken when one pleases, at no fixed hour. During the whole morning the noble owner of the mansion is ex tremely busy. The upper Hungarian aristocracy still manage the business details cf their estatrs themselves, and, as may be imagined, this is no small work, since many of these domains are larger than some petty German states. Such is the everyday life of a Hunga rian nobleman. In winter he generally goes with bi9 family to 6pend a few months in Budapest San Francisco Argonaut LonKstreet on Ilia Farm. A visitor wfco recently caned to see General Lougerrect at his farm near Gainesville, Ga., says: "I looked for a large, old fashioned southern place, with pillars and a wide hall. Instead the house was an ordinary story and a half farmhouse, such as a northern car pen ter might build. A board nailed to a tree offered wine for sale at a very low price, and I saw au extensive vine yardacro3s the road. A lean, farmerlike person told me that General Longstreet was in his vinevard, and there 1 came upon him, scissors in hand, busily prun ing his vines. He is a big old man, stooping a little now and slow of gait. He wears long white whiskers, cutaway from hiscbin. His hair is white as wool, but his skin is ruddy, as though sleep and good digestion were still his to com mand. We talked for a time about his garden and vineyard. 'I get out every afternoon,' he said, 'and work about' find the sun and air do me good.' One of bis arms is a little disabled, and he is quite deaf in one ear. He could not bear very well in the open air, and at bis suggestion we returned to the bouse. I live with my tenant. He is a veteran of the northern army,' be said at the door, and there was a slight smile about bis eyes." New York Tribune. Made Plain. Lawyer Well, proceed.
