f HE DAILY ARGUS W OTT64. Wbdsksuav Novembib 21. 18H8. FOILED AT LIST. The Sensational W'hitechapel Mur derer is Seen. The Tivamry Burping. There were two points upon which the gn;&t political parlies to the late contest were agreed, auja the New York Graphic. One was that a heavj accumulation of money in the national treasury is a source of much danger and loss to the country. The other that the readiest and best way of preventing these accumulations is by reducing the government income. The Presidential canvass beini; over, the sen- ible business men of the country can examine this question of the treasury sur plus without the partisan bias which to some extent may have warped their judg ment for the past few months. The report from Secretary Fairchild at the beginning of the oresent month shows that there were in round numbers 74, 500,000 surplus in the treasury at the closing hour of business on Oc looer 81. Three months aeo the surplus amounted to over $100,000, w ine uecruase in the Bmount held torlay is accounted for by the fact J.(turing the months of August, Sep Wleniher and October there was a very tic able increase in the ordinary ex iditures of the government, and be- this the secretary had made heavy Purchases of government bonds.

This, after all, however, is only a tern pomry expedient. With the present rising tide of business prosperity the mil liAHo 4- 41.- 4 .. .4. m me treasury vau s will snnn agaiaiBount upwards, and the ich is to meet next month ousht once to pass a mtasure which, workini a minimum amount of mischief to the in- d.islnes of the country, would secure that reduction of the revenue which people of ait parties demand. Heretofore the parties hive divided o well dfined lines as to how this reduc tion should be made. The Mills bill and the senate bill afforded an idea of the methods suggested by each party, but Very unrm.-judlct'd man knows that neither of these measures, in its present shape, stand a chance of pis si tig in the Com in? session of congress. What the country requires is that some legislation shall be promptly enacted that will relieve business interests from the uncertainty and insecurity which the accumulations in the Treasury and the present condition of tariff legislation cause. Perhaps the close of the presidential canvass may have put each party in a more tractable mood and made a compromise upon the matter, which will be satisfactory to the countrv, more easy of attainment. He Fat In In One f Hin Diabolical Deeds and Fleea Hm Intended Vic tint Furnfshe a Deacripilnn of Him That May art to lit Apprehension. London, Not. 31. The most intense excitement was occasioned this morning by the report of another Whitechapel murder. An enormous crowd rushed to the vicinity where the crime was said to have been committed. According to the woman's story, the man seized her sud denly and struck her once in the throat with a knife. Her cries alarmed the man and he fled, the would-be murderer being followed three hundred yards by neigh bors, when he disappeared. The woman claims to be able to recogniza the man, and gave a description to the police upon which the latter are hopeful of capturing the fiend. TCldowhood Am one the Hindoos. Take the case of the widow from infancy, shorn of all that women value anywhere In tho world, dressed in coarse clothing, de prived of her ornaments, compelled to fast till health breaks down, made to subsist on the coarsest of food, kept out of what amuse ments come in the way of the rest of the household, forced into beiug the unpaid drudge of the family, held to bethe legitimate butt of the ill nature of all, considered fit only to amuse the children, openly called and taught to think herself a creature of ill omen this beiug ths cause of all the rest of her sorrows superstition has indeed nowhere else shown more clearly its power to pervert the reason of man. How much the women dread widowhood is exhibited to the full in the fact that to call a women a widow is to offer her a dire insult, and from her earliest rhildhood a girl is taught to pray that s .e may die white yet the red spot of coverture' remains on her fore head. In any case the fear of widowhood overshadows the Hindoo lady's life, even though she hate her lord. L'ant. R. C. Tem ple in Journal of the Society of Arts.

Hurrlium to Confer with tha Leader at His Hum. Washington Citv, Nov. 21. Secretary Fairuhlld is hard at work on hit annual .re port. The president is largely dependent upon the figures in tuia report in the treat ment of the revenue question in bis message. It Is quite likely, mvs The Evening Star, that Mr. Cleveland' message will possess some of the elements of clever retort that appeared in his last fisheries messAgo. It is general. y understood that be will stand up to the question of tariff reform as in his message at the beenming of this congress, and will make It the feature of the document. He will not yWd one jot from his position before the camriairn, but he will prob ably make more emphatic his declaration that it is a "coudition, not a theory. that .-mfrouts us" It is likely that he will t make it clear to congress that the ne cessity,. . ehwkinff the surplus is so great that if the Democratic plan can not carry tnroupn con gress they should yield under protest to ttieKe- pnbhean amendment rather than have no reduc tion at all. There will be no weakeninjr from the f onner position, and do confession that the popu lar verdict has condemned tariff reform. Mr. Cleveland has said that he would si en any bill that should come to him making a reduction In the revenue, whether as to tariff d-itte' or internal taxes, unless there were something about, it abso lutely virions If the senate 1111 should imuw i now is. it is almost certain that be would sijn it probably with some remarks in explanation of his motives. President Cleveland went from the execu tive mansion to Oak View last evening, fully determined to remain at his country home until, after he has completed his annual mes sage to r-onpres1, which he has not yet begun. He has most of the topics well in hand, but he finds it will be utterly imprs-ible to pre pare it before congress meets if be does not escape from the unavoidable interruptions which beset him at the White House. Visi tors at the mansion are quite as numerous as ever, but at Oak View the president will receive no visitors and devote his time as siduously to the task before hint. ricturesque Scenery tn Spain. The little towns we pass look lifee houses madd of building blocks, with elfin castles on tho summits of miniature mountains. They are very picturesque almost too much so and add much to the unreality and beauty of the landscape. They seem so quiet in appearance. that it is hard to believe mat the time worn walls contain the group of bepirs, the tink ling bells of the donkeys, and the noise of the brightly dressed throng. There can be no country in the world which offers such a panorama of natural in terest as Spain. It is as shifting in color as a kaleidoscope. Here are flocks of goats coming down the mountain paths to water at the clear valley s: reams. The steop roads are covered with burros and coyly dressed drivers, and along the roads stand the crosses raised to show that some one was slain there by the wsyide. The mortality must have been great, judging by the number on sees everywhere. VT. Parker Bodtish in Demo rest's Monthly. Klieniflcunt Figures. From the Chicago Times.

That paper is now uriMOi: free carpet wool! and other amendments to the senate tari bill lookinu in the same direction; that is, in the direction of the hill it has so fero ciously assailed. Where now is its motherly sympathv for the sheep far mers? So, too. Wade's Fiber and Fabric, which has all alonir been emptying vials and de canters and demijohns of wrath upon the devoted heads of the "free-trade democ racy," now discouifes in this wise: "Not only free wool, b'lt free raw material would he a boon to the manufacturers of the United States, making an additional protection. We also believe that this doctrine is more prevalent than most re publicans are willing to admit openly." It then proceed to berate "the moat con servative republicans. " who "lost their heads and in a ereat measure their reas oning faculties" in regard to this subject during the late contest for the presidency. We can only infer from these post election deliverances from high-tariff organs one of two things: Either they were insincere in their bitter opposition to tariff reform a short time ago or else the results in the manufacturing states have convinced them that neither fools nor voting cattle are to be driven to the polls and compelled to deposit such bal lots as the factory lord see fit to place in their hands. The latter seems the more probable. It seems likely that they hive concluded that concessions must be made or the vote on which they have counted will slip away from them. But they are careful not to concede anything in the interests of consumers. They are consistent in consulting only the interests of the factorv lords. refused to move the pitcher box to fifty five from the home plate, because, although such a change would help the batter to hits. the pitcher would have better command of the bases to prevent rum.

The congressional contests have, I think, re sulted in (riving us two of the districts, but there is still room for a little doubt on that score.

Cannon for speaker-in the event of the Republicans eon- trolling tbe house has met with a good deal of favor from Harrison's friends here, and it is claimed that his selection would be very gratifying to the president-elect, as be would more nearly represent the administrations views on the southern question than one who was born and reared north; and that, whatever Cannon's Republicanism may be, he still re tains a desire to see the south prosper, and his election as speaker would bo regarded as aa indication that Harrison did not intend to pursue an extreme course in dealing with that section. .

Indianapolis, Nov. 1. lo the general assembly of the Knights of Labor yesterday the committee on laws submitted a partial re port recommend ing tnat section 15 of article 8 of the constitution be so changed as to pro vide for the following officers: (reneral roas ter workman, general worthy foreman, gen eral director of woman's work, general ex ecutive board of five, including tbe general master workman (instead of seven, as now); general co-operative board of three, includ ing the general worthy foreman (instead of six, as at present), and general secretary - treasurer (instead of two separate officers, as now). It was fnrtber recommended that al3 these officers should be nominated upon ths floor of tbe general assembly and elected by ballot, a majority of the vote to make the choice. Tbe term of office was fixed at twe years, as now. Tbe dnties of the various officers were specifically named in the re port, those of tbe general master workman including his acting aa ex-officio chairman of the general executive board. The general worthy foreman is provided with the chair manship ex-ofiicio of the general co-operative board. In selecting a general exocutive board th general master workman is to submit to the assembly tbe names of eight knights eligible to the position, from which the assembly is to choose four members of tb board. The general co-operative board, it is provided in the report, shall be composed of three knights, taken from a list of four to be sub mitted by the general worthy foreman. All the changes except that relating to a consolidation of the oniees of general secre tary and treasurer were strongly opposed. The friends of Powderly, however, urged that a general master workman could not accomplish the result desired unless he could have men about him who are in harmony with his views. Charles H. Litchman favored tbe amendments, and George A. Schilling led the opposition, but tbe com m it tee's report was adopted by a vote ot 96 to 54 without change. At tbe afternoon session a resolution from the committee on laws embodying the sug gestion of Powderly that the time of the an nual meeting be changed so aa not to come directly before or directly after elections was reported upon adversely, and tbe report was approved. The committee also recommended that article 22, of the constitution be amended so as to permit tbe general master workman to fill by appointment all vacancies occurring in the geueral executive board; that the gen eral secretar y-trensurer be required to sub mit weekly instead of daiiy financial statements; that any member of the general executive board may audit the accounts of tbe general secretary- treasurer, instead of requiring tbe general master workman to do tbe work, as now that the secretary-treasurer shall furnish quarterly itemieed accounts of tbe financial condition of trie order, and that he shall send out quarterly a list of local assemblies and their standing in the order; that the seat of any general officer may be declared va cant by a majority vote of the general as sembly; that tbe condemnation of the provis ional committee by General Master Work man Powderly be endorsed. Tbe report as to all these matters, together with several others of minor importance regarding the government of the order, was concurred in by tbe assembly. As its concluding work of tbe day the as sembly approved every decision by General Master Workman Powderly during tbe last year. Barry last night gave the public an open letter in which he reiterates all the charges he has heretofore made against Powderly and his followers. He will organize a new order to be called the Brotherhood ot t'nited Lalor. CONDENSED NEWS. Railroads in Sooth Carolina made an in crease in earnings during the Tear of 38 per cent.
