WASHINGTON . D. C. . Feb. 13. |
.The1 house committee on public buildings
and grounds to-day reported Mr. McShane's
blllcalllng for 11,500,000 for ji new govern
ment building nt Omaha ns amended by the
committee. The amendment provides for an
appropriation" of'$500,000 for the securing of
a site. The committee state thnt this action
lias been taken in view of the fact that legis
lation by the state of Nebraska Is necessary
bdjoro complete title nnd cessation of Juris
diction onthepartof the state can bo obtained
by flic government , nnd that Inasmuch us the
legislature will not meet until the coming
year this appropriation is all thnt is necessary
under the circumstances of the case. Mr.
McSliano has made a vigorous fight on bo-
Imlf of the full amount , as called for in his
bill , nnd ho has been aided by Messrs.
Laird and Dorscy. The action taken
is Stated by several members of the commit
tee to bo entirely in the line of the full
amount of the appropriation , as called for by
Mr , McShano's bill , and with no view to cut
the cost of the building when erected. They
believe that on the very strong she wing made
by Congressman McShano ns to the necessi
ties of the government at Omaha that there
will bo no dlfllculty at the next session of
congress in passing a bill providing for the
erection of a building to cost $1,000,000. The
report of the committee is undoubtedly in
fluenced by the approaching campaign nnd
the feeling among the democrats that appro
priations must bo paicd down to the lowest
jMisslble notch In order to make a showing in
the coming canvass. It is probable thnt the
bill will come tip for passage in the house be
tween the -1st and 25th lust. , and us
it will have the united and vigorous
support of the state delegation , there Is no
doubt of its adoption. It Is not sure , how
ever , thnt the senate will concur in the
amendment of the house. If it docs not the
bill will go to a conference committee , In
which event the bill , us passed by tbo sen
ate , may bo restored and finally accepted by
the house.
MBVBUIir.S FllOM SENATOR PADDOCK.
Senator Puddoek to-day in the senate in
troduced a memorial from the citizens of
Lincoln praying that the government should
bear its share of the expense of paving and
grading the streets adjacent to the govern
ment building. Ho also introduced u peti
tion signed by the governor and various state
ofllccrs nud citi/ens of Nebraska , praying
for a pension for Mrs. Nancy Pollack , which
was referred to the committee on pensions ,
I'AimOCK ON PUIIMO DOCUMENTS.
During the course of the debute on the
question of the sui plus of publio documents
in resjOTiiso to Senator Vest's charge that too
many documents were printed and that he
hud sovcr.il thousand which he was unable to
dispose of , Senator Mandorson , the chairman
of the committee on printing , being absent ,
Senator Paddock took up the cudgels in debate -
bate in behalf of his colleague. Ho said
that his colleague , who is chair
man of the committee on printing , was , una
voidably absent from t > > o chamber , otherwise
ho would undoubtedly bo heard from in an
swer to the charges against him nnd his com
mittee mude by thts senator from Missouri in
the course of his remarks. Mr. Paddock
said there might have l > ccn some abuses in
the matter of printing public documents of
the classes referred to by the senator , but
that ho himself 'would be glad to receive
from the surplus of such documents a few
thousand for distribution to his constitu
ents ; that there wcro some hundreds of
thousands of pioneers on homesteads in the
frontier counties of his state and the same
Was true of Kansas and the other states and
territories of the newer northwest who are
hungry and thirsty for knowledge of any nnd
all kinds , and they would gladlv receive even
the documents so vehemently disparaged by
the senator from Missouri. There Is no sub
ject considered worthy of consideration by
the committees of congress or by commissions
appointed by its authority to consider any
report upon which reports wcro considered
important enough to print , which would not
interest the people of his section of the
country , nt least , and lie would bo glad to
have them for distribution. Being u new
senator , lie Is not entitled to documents for
distribution , and ho would bo glad to receive
from the senator from Missouri , or anybody
else , five or six thousand or more of these
disparaged documents for his constituents.
IOWA -MATTEItS IN THE 8ENATK.

The Gould nnd SUKO Larceny.
NEW YOIIK , Feb. 13. [ Special Telegram to
.ho Bun. ] It is said the charges against Uus-
sell Sago and Jay Gould for larceny of Union
'aciflc ' railroad bonds will be brought to the
attention of the grand jury at once. But ono
fact has corao to light that warrants the ex
pectation that the officers of the law will not
dismiss the charges without doino sort of
: > ublo ! inquiry. District Attorney Fellows
declarer he has bpen approached by men hav
ing an interest In the case. There bos been
some criticism in some quarters over the ac
tion of the district attorney's office in holding
a secret conference to hear arguments. The
district attorney in nn intervicxv said : "I
have been npponchud by men evidently bent
on an effort to influence me , suggesting I
should be careful. Some have even said that
if I would act agreeably to their view they
could arrange things pleasant for mo. " Peo-
p'o attached to Gould's interest say that Jay
Gould will bo in New York before March 1.

AMU8KMENTS.
The Treat of the SCHBOH at Bord'o.
The Howard Athenaeum Star Specialty
company opened nt Boyd'B last night. It is
n remarkably Uno attraction , one of the very
best that has been hero this season. Many
of the performers are previous acquaintances ,
but' their acts are now und prepared on- pur
pose for this tour , while the new engage-
incuts are of uncommon nicrjt and attract
iveness. The Whirlwinds of the Desert , the
four Arabs , give a performance that has
never had an equal in this country , and they
were greeted with the most enthusiastic ap
plause. Hoblni and Ilczeno , in an eccentric
trapero act , also brought down the
house ; the brothers. Fontc-Bonl in
n curiously clever boll imitation are
great , and a London mayician , Carl Hertz.
introduces some tricks that almost
partake of the preternatural. The Irwin
sisters May and Flora repeated their great
success of j ears gone by. "Home Uulo" is u
Teed medium for displaying their specialties
this including the singing by Miss May , who
carried the audience by storm with "Wuv
Down in Maine" and other novelties ; the
nale inicrsoiiutioii | of Miss Flora was cap-
.taL Adums , CHBC.V and Howard save a re
fined black-laced musical sketch of n similar
nature to that in which they have previously
won much favor. Miss Lbzio Daly inoru than
satisfied the demands of her unlimited nd
mirers for her inimitable work lit the shrine
of Terpsichore. Hoey and Dailoy need no
special mention , save to say that they are us
nopular as over In their not unfamiliar
dialogue act. The programme is quite
lengthy , but , every item Is good , and the com
pany will not bo duplicated hero this season ,
for its equal is not on the road.
NAILED THE DARKEY.
A Traveling Man PlnjH Policeman For
a Little While.
A traveling man by the name of Shank-
land , representing a glass factory nt Glovers-
villo , N. Y. , stepped up to a darkey in the
corridor of the Paxton at midnight last
night , took him by the collar and marching
up to the ofllco directed thoclurk to telephone
to the central police station for an ofllccr.
The negro all this time presented a stolid In
difference , but when Officer Cullen and a
companion arrived ho weakened nnd asked
for what ho was to bo pigged.
'Lock liim up and I will appear against
him. I am directed by your superior officer
in this move , " said Shankland , and the offi
cers departed with their prisoner.
To u BKB reporter Shankland explained
that he had employed the negro , whoso numo
is Archie White , to assist him during tno day
in carrying about his sample case. As a re
ward. upon their return to the Paxton where
Shankland is quartered , he dove down
in his pocket and handed White ,
ns ho supposed , a silver dollar. But
a little later ho discovered that it was a I.H )
gold piece and not a dollar , and by advice of
the proprietors of the house ho started out
to find White , accompanied by n ] > olict'mun
delegated for the search by Chief Seavey.
White , however , succeeded in eluding his
pursuers , though they heard of him ns hav
ing been in several places spending money
freely. Upon his return to the Paxton ho
was quickly gobbled up , and to-day will bo
given u hearing.
A Veteran Become * lunatic.
Nelson Brown , the old G. A , H. patriarch
who has n candy stand on the corner of Doup-

door to him. The old inanihasx ocn hard
times lately and this , coupled" with nc'glecV
nnd insufficient food , has weakened bis mind !
Some two or three months ago ho was mur

him into insensibility with | > op bottles. Since
then the old man has never been himself.

Clara Iteifo's Letter.
NKW YoitK , FoU. 11. [ Correspond
ence of the BEK. ] Slnco WilUtun K.
irmidorbilt sailed nway on u trip around
lie uorld little 1ms boon heard of him.
Pho newspapers have not followed him
ip with closeness. Now and then a
) rief telegram bus appqarod , announe-
ng Unit Mr. Vandcrbilt hud graciously
consented to bo received by the sultan ,
ol1 some minor potyntutuvha would un
doubtedly gladly exchange boots with
ils money guest. That Mr. Vandorbllt
spent Chrlstmns in the vicinity of the
iardandlles and thnt Mrs. Vandorbllt
did not forget to _ send , a Now Year's
hock to Now York In. the interests of
charity. But some of Mr. Vandcrbllt's
rionds have been fortunate in obtaln-
ng private udvicos about him , and from
one of these letters I obtain a grout deal
of information. Mr. Vandcrbllt's ex-
lerlonccs thus far have been devoid of
mything remarkable from the point of
view of the adventurer. Ho has had no
encounters with brigandHoithor Italian
or Turkish , ho has not "boon followed by
) irates in the mediteranean ; ho has
climbed no diz/y mountain heights , nor
ins he attempted to enter Morquos in
linguist ) , ho has not bearded the tiger
n his lair , nor shot tho. sacred white
elephant on the banks of the Ganges.
In fact , Mr. Van dorbilt's llfo is , in his
own opinion and that of his friends , al-
.ogother too valuable to risk in any such
foolhardy manner. That may do for
iionoyless nobodies , but never for the
jiggost of American money kings. Mr.
VanderMlt , according to the best
authority , has , however , been able to
enjoy hinibclf much more to his satibfac-
,1011. At present ho Is in Egypt , and on
lis way up the Nile. Ho has chartered
, ho steamer Prince , Abbas , which re
turned to Cairo last week , having on
ward the Duo do Chartres and a party
of illvstrious gentlemen. Mr. Vander-
lt was introduced to the noble duke
And they had a pleasant time while both
pnrtics remained in Cairo. The

LO bo the regular excursion boat of the
Nile lor parties wuq can afford to pay
; he exceedingly liir o price charged
tor her use. The UAtings and furnish
ings are of the mostj-luxurious charac
ter , and almost equal to the magnifi
cence of Mr. Vandefbilt's own yacht.
The steamer is a lu'fdo ono compared to
the general run of vessels in use on the
Nile , and the Vand bilt party will not
llnd it necessary toicomplain of cramped
quarters. The stacti was mudo a few
days ago Und the 'ultimate ' destination
is the First Cataract. Stops will bcs
made at Luxor , Car'nak , Thebes and
other towns and vill46 ° 3 on t'10 ' UP trip
and possibly at sofnp on the return.
Mr. Vanderbilt has written that Egypt
is not a country of . .pleasant sights , al
though abounding with things of inter
esting nature. He found more rags and'
misery in Cairo than ho ever before
'
imagined possible. 'The turbulent Nile ,
with its muddy wafers and loamy blaeliL
banks boa caused him to express sur
prise at the stories of Cleopatra
and her wonderful barge. To his
mind , floating on the dirty wavcjs.
and watching -crocodiles as they
impudently flirt thdir tails , is not such
a delightful thing us it is alleged to
have been. Ho admits , however , that
the moonlight , and beautiful houris in
picturesque costume and soft music may
have made u difference. Mr. Vandor-
bilt'H Nile visit will hist much longer
than the three weeks that it usually
takes , because he expects to be some
time in exploring the wonders of the
place where ho intends to stop. Ho will
manage to get back in time , however ,
to avoid any dangers from the annual
overflow. Ho has taken along with him
a goodly supply of choice Perfcctos to
prevent infection from the ill-smelling
nigs that are omnipresent in Egypt ut
this time. Ho believes that good tobacco
smoke will drive away any such danger ,
and invites his companions to puff
away at his best brands all the time.
"Doing" the Nile has apparently at
tracted a great many Americans re
cently. Mr. J. Plorrepont Morgfin , the
rich banker and uUitesinan , chartered
the fcamo steamer that Mr. Vanderbilt
is now using. Ho was in a hurry , how
ever , and broke the time record on the
trip by steaming night'and day iiibtead
of lying-to at night. Ho returned to
Cairo in a week and a half from the time
ho started. Mr. Ismay of the White
Star line also made the trip and a num
ber of well known Americans have been
there incognito. Letters have been re
ceived in New York from Mr. and Mrs.
Daniel B. Fearing , the wealthy society

Society moarns thi f&rly advent this
yonr. It-is generally' agreed that Feb-
rii : ry 15 is a date altogether outrageous
charitable ha/.iuirs , u.iu " the carrying ol
'prayer books In th w"niornoon. There
was. a tlmo when jthts- Lenten season
might bo opened ignored , and church
authority dolled with impunity. But
boeioty doesn't do that tort of thing
now. It's fashionable to bo churchly ,
so the backcloth and. ashes are metu-
jihoricully donned without a murmur.
Some young women even go bo far as to
attend church two or Uireo times a day.
They may bo escorted homo by a differ
ent young man each time , but they coil-
solo themselves with a conscioutmc&s ol
duty performed. There is some talk ol
a great charity fair before Easter , to bo
led by such names as Astor and Vanderbilt -
bilt , but the project has not yet taken
definite shape , and come to nothing.
Notwithstanding the widespread JXJPU-
larity of Lenten observances , however ,
thora are a considerable number o :
wealthy Nuw Yorkers whoso ubsurt
independence of the . conventionalities
ma led them to n charming noW dopar-
lire in their sot. This is a departure
for Florida , Nittsau , or some other
: enlal clime a few days before Ash
'Wednesday , and a return to civilization
i few days after Easter. At least twenty
families have departed within the last
week , with the solo purpose of escaping
the dullnessof Lent , and many more are
going.
.But if Lent isobsorvod rather strictly ,
society makes the most of the gay
sensou up to the last moment. While
the afternoon receptions and the evening -
ing "small nnd enrlys" at private houses
irons numerous as over , the ontortain-
inonts'ntDelmonlco's und the Brunswick
liavo greatly increased in number. For
Instance : Uelmonleo's second floor is
engaged for every night up to
Ash Wednesday , for balls nnd
other fcooittl , afiairs. Private cnter-
lalntnents in publio places admission
by cdrd only grow in favor and save
much \ vcr and tear on the goods and
'
chatt'ol.s.bf.'handsoinq dwellings. It is
ilono by forming so-called "clubs" or'
"cirolo8 ( " and , issuing engraved invita
tions. . Delmuuico weeps when ho thinks
of Lent , but it is doubtful 11 ho goes to
enurcli oven ontio-a day.
The .dancing season closes with the
beginning of Lbntyof course , and it1 lias
been * n unusually gay ono , in conso-
qtumcoi of the condensation already
mentioned. A feature of the last ball in
the Astor coterie was the presence of
four bridal parties. In eauh instance
Lhe bride was there wearing the costume
in which qho has stood before the altar ,
except that the veil and orange blossoms
"
soms were "discarded. The four groups
of bridesmaids nlso appeared In the
dresses which they had worn nt the
weddings. These interesting bridul
parties kept themselves intact for an
hour or so , and around them crowded ad
miring siwctutors. An air of rivalry was
imparted the exhibition , too , for it was
inevitable that comparisons should bo
critically made , not ulono us to the per
sonal beauty or lack of it but in the
matter of clothes. At all events it was
a successful attempt to inject an almost
bonpationnl element into what would
have been a fine but conventional cli
max of the season.
Propriety and Shakespeare have had
a collision , and Miss Rose Elizabeth
Cleveland had something to do with it.
That is to say , the extremely fashion
able school in which pho is a member of
the faculty was the place of the impact.
The rules of that establishment , govern
ing the conduct of the pupils , compels
the girls who board there to got a-
special permission every time they go
outside tno walls , except for promenades
together and with a chaporono.
Applications -for leave to go
to theaters are generally refused ,
but Shakespeare has usually been hon
ored with a breach of this law. Wlion
Booth & Barrett last plnyed hero these
school girls wore allowed to go _ to the
matinees in chaperoned parties , and
oven at night , under approved escort.
Modjeska is in town this \\ook in a round
of Shakespearean plays , and the girls
under Miss Cleveland Bup | > osod that
they could witness these representa
tions. But when it came to 'Cymbo- '
lino" and "Measure Measure , " with
their shocking plots , the question had
to be carefully considered : On the one
hand it was argued that Shakespeare's
works wore above condemnation , oven
in these pieces usually offered by actors ,
while it was as strenuously urged that
the ad ventures of the heroine in each
in each instance wcro utterly unlit for
young girls to see. Miss Cleveland was
delegated to find out how far Modjeska
intended to go in u literal illustration of
Shakespeare , and she wrote a polite
letter tp the actress , asking if the bed
chamber bceno in "Cymbolino" was to bo
given as in the play. Modjoska
replied that not ' only would
every word in it bo broken , but that ,
after mature consideration , she had de
cided to emphasize it by the utmost de
gree of pantomime. She said that the
whole play depended upon this princi
pal scene for its intelligibility and in
terest. Thereupon she felt that artistic
reverence for Shakespeare not only de
manded that this particular passage
should not bo curtailed , but that it
should bo given with all possible dram
atic force. Miss Cleveland as emphatic
ally decided that her girls should not
see "Cymbelino. " Probably she was
right. There is a grcaf deal of good
poetry in this play of Shakespeare's , but
the principal feature of the btory is the
surreptitous visit to her bcdbide by an
advontureous scoundrel , in quest of false
evidence against her modesty. How
ever , several audiences did see Mod
jeska in this dramatic exploit , and por-
bonal observation of ' one Of thebo gather
ings impells the 'writer to declare that
Shnkespcnro literally illustrated on the
stage is u shock to sensitive eyes and
ears.
ears.This leads up to Comstock's raids upon
undruped art , and one of our variety
theatres the only ono close to Broad
way , and commonly visited by polite
people has this week taken shrewd ad
vantage of the subject. Wherever did
you hear of 'any body , oven the most
acute stickler for propriety , objecting to
skin-tight coverings on the circus per
formers ? Thrco athletes happened to
bo under engagement to this ubtablish-
meut. One of them was a young woman.
Ordinarily they threw flip-Haps , and did
other acrobatic things , in the costume
common to Iheir profession. 'But this

largo decrease in the visible supply larger
than was generally expected niul , wlm't
scorned n totally unexpected nld to the bulls ,
n big cut in storage rates. There was not n
bear iwint In sight. All these things seemed
to possess strength early In tlio day , but the
power dropped pretty much out of them be
fore the session was over , and , ns a result of
the morning's trading , May wheat closed
Just } fc higher than it closed Saturday. The
explanation of the early advance wa4 tip-
parent to everybody. The reason for the
loss of it was not so clear. The only solu
tion of the problem offered wus that buying
orders from tlio outside wcro all tilled
early in tlio day , und they ceased to
conic. Local traders , for whom the market
consists of one day , und thnt only , believing
that the expected bulge was now coming In
deed , had bought wheat , nud when prices
failed to advance any further proceeded to
unload it as fast .is possible and only found
buyers at lower llgurcs. Trading was nctlve
nnd there was a good volume of business
early , but Inter the pit became rather dull.
Muv wheat opened at bl c nud immediately
sold up to Sl c. This WHS the highest point
of the session , though the market lingered in
that neighborhood for some time , with fdr-
clgn houses buying nnd good buying for
New Yoik account. In the latter part of the
session the price sagged to bU @SI o and
closed there at 1 o'clock. Juno wheat opened
nt bSQS'JXc , bold at 81Vc " "d Sl c und
closed at 1 o'clock with the last named price
united.
While the visible supply of wheat continues
to decrease the supply of corn is rapidly pil
ing up , mid this in spite of u short crop und
comparatively light receipts In this marUot.
To this fact and the rather easier fouling in
provisions thu decline In corn to-day ought
probably to bo attributed. The market
seemed strong early and advanced a little ,
but later dropped ) c and closed nt nearly the
lowest point of the session. The increase in
the visible supply was 470,000 bushels. May
coin opened at C1)c and Immediately sold up
to Mc and hung between those two prices
for some time , then dropped to file and cloved

There was quite liberal buying of oats
early in the session for u local ojHiiator and
some buying to cover shorts , all of which hud
that market firm caily mid even advanced
prices a little , but later , with the drop in
corn , Ottts ulso declined. May outs opened at
