Feb. 10.-SpoclnlTele [ gram to THC Br.c"A reformation of party lines. " Tills Is the explanation made by prominent democrats In con rre-w of Mr. Cleveland s action in calling Judge Walter Q , Grcsh.im of Chicago to the iwrtfollo of scfri'turj of state. It was reported in Washington yesterday nflernoo" and reaffirmed by rumors in con- grcsiiouai i-irrles last night , that Judge Grcsham had been tendered and had ac cepted the secretaryship of state , but it was not given credence by those who were sup posed to be In a position to know something of the president-elect's Intcrilions. When Ihe announcement was made through the newspapers Ihls morning , and verified In Ihe most positive manner by Representalive Springer of Illinois and others democrats were free tc express their private opinion of the new turn In building "the Cleveland party " Judirc Gresham's selection as pre mier of the now cabinet comes as a stinging blow to the old lino" nnd s | > oils democrats. They tremble over what may bo in store for them , now that the president-elect has evl- dintlj d'HcnniiH'd to disregard his party and appeal to the country Visions of civil service reform and mugwumpery hang about and menace them like a scourge. Notice has been served upon the old party leaders that they are to have a president who fears not the machine or the individuals who compose U , and one who has already made up bin mind that partj ties are uncertain and dis- npKInttnp | Planning For III * Own Pnrty. One of the most prominent democratic members of the Indiana delegation said that it was evidentlj the intention of Mr. Cleve land to not oul > reform party lines , regulat ing loaders and creating new ones , but to forcibly slough off the rabble : that , to use his own language. "Mr. Cleveland has un doubtedly come to Dm conclusion that it is time for him to get off the Bowery and move down Fifth avenue. ' ' After his overwhelming defeat in attempt ing to reiwal the silver purchase act. Mr. Cleveland has concluded that ho will be con fronted throughout his entire administration with a divided party in congress and his only course will be to frame measures , pre- penl them to congress , and let the rcsi > ons- iblllty rest theriv appealing to the country for his vindication. He has determined to bring the mugwump element. led by Greshatn and MeVeagh nnd others of thai school , lo Ihe front as counselors and leaders and send to the rear such veterans as Morrison , Voorhces. Mor- Kau and others , who were party leaders when Mr Cleveland was sheriff at Buffalo. It is believed by democrats and republicans hero that Mr Cleveland Intends to bid hich for jiopullst suiiport. nnd that ho will dis regard the party machine wherever U does not offer prompt obedience , and that his aim in calling Grcbham to the Department of Slate Is lo conciliate Ihe farmers , who have ever since his "famous" Wnbasti decision been led lo believe that Gresham is their siKX'ial champion. It will be Mr Grtsham's duty to persuade the American fanners that all the benefits which must In the next few years accrue to the agricultural classes from the policy of reciprocity , should be placed lo the credit of the Clovelan J administration. Peel Itiither Put Out. The friends of every disappointed cabinet aspirant are ut a white heat of indignation nt the Grcsham preferment , but most of 1 them , with a due regard for Mr. Cleveland's rich store of patronage , are chary about ex- I pressing their opinions for publication. The ' Illinois iricnds of Mr. Morrison , and the Indiana supporters of ox-Governor Gray are I particularly bitter. Mr. Morrison , his friends claim , was ft democrat even before President Grant picked up Mr. Grcsham from obscurity nnd brought him Into public notice. Gray's friends.bitlcrly protest thai ' the ex-governor stepped out of Cleveland's i way at Chicago last year only after Mr. i Whitney's distinct promise of a place in the cabinet , and they add that if he should now , after the appointment of Gresham. accept any place under the Cleveland administra tion , ho would not only lose all self-respect but casts among his friends In Indiana. The southern democrats in the house bit terly point out that Judge Grcsham en dorsed , If he did not champion , the first "force bill.'and the larlff reformers In con- press call altentlon to the fact that Gresham's enthusiasm for tariff reform was never sufficient to take him out of the repub lican parly until after President Harrison's rcnomiuatlon in IbtfJ. 1 Will Not riilillcljr Protent. i Allogelher no contemplate ! ! stop , by man or party , has aroused such'a whirlwind i of Indignation and angry protest as this proposition of Mr. Cleveland's to I make Mr. Gresham his secretary of [ state , and yet it is safe to assert 1 that not a single protest will be forwarded \ from Washington against the appointment f for Iho simple reason that no democrat bo- Hevcs a protest from a member from his own i party would receive any consideration at the [ hinds of Mr Cleveland. U Is of Interest to add that the Gresham news was tirsl brought hew bv Representa tive William I. Wilson of West Virginia , the same gentleman who announced only a day or two ago that Mr. Cleveland was dolor- mined not to again appoint any of his old office holders. COMMENT IN Ni\V YOIIK.

Referring to the re port from Chicago that Prestdeut-elecl ClevO' land had offered Judge Gresham the secre taryship of state the Washington corre spondent of the Herald says : "Tho information , generally accepted , that Judge Walter Q.

Locally the newspaper says : "The poli ticians were trealod lo a genuine surprise yesterday in the announcement that Judge Walter ( J.

Democrat * oftlio Windy City.Seem Pleased ut the Aiulntiiient. CmcACio , 111. , Feb. 10. Judge Gresham stated to a prominent democrat of Chicago not more than four weeks ago , when the question of his elevation to the supreme bench was under discussion , that he could not see his way clear to accepting any posi- tiou \Vushniglon. . He did not think him self equal , financially or physically , to the demands which would be rnaae upon a man occupying such a posilion , and he would refuse any gift in Ihe disi > osal ot Ihe pres ident. Chlcaifo democrats were of but one opinion that the sek-clion was an admirable one , if il has been made. John Mayo Palmer , son of Senalor Palmer , said : "If Ihe appointment were made I think it would give great satisfaction to the people at large , bul wouldjxt first be resented by those who are classed as polllicians for ob vious reasons. If , as I believe , Mr. Cleve land regards Iho republican parly as having gouo into bankruptcy , because its mission has > been accomplished , and intends to re organize iKirlics upon living issues and draw to the support of his administration all Ihose who agree with him upon Ihe pol icy of larlff reform and a sound financial syslem. without regard to their opinions ui > on ISMICS which have been settled , nolhlng could lw wiser than to take as ono of his ad visers such u man as Judge Gresham , whose opinions upon Iheso .luesllons and sjmpalhy with the people as against aggregations of wealth art ? so widely and favorably known. F. S. Winston was emphatic in his ap proval. "No boiler seleclion could be nade , " he said. "H would bo an ideal nomination , both us regards a striking of the jiopular fhord and as a slroke of democratic iwlitics. The only fear I have is that Judge Grcsham will not see his wav clear to accepting : ! . " Until the apiKjintment Is announced on the authority of Mr. Cleveland Franklin Mae- Veuirh said it would be premature to discuss it. -I cannot help , however , saying thai It Is one of the most strategic moves ever made m a political field if it is made. " he said. "It will strengthen the reform element the > oung i-lenu-nt in Ihe party , and effectually bind that class of former republicans who came over to the democracy last year , con vinced that Ihelr former parly had oulllved ils usefulness. " Judge Thoman fell that the news , If true , was but another indication of the divorco- nicnt of high governmenl Irusls from slrictly partisan iwlitics. Colonel Sexton had similar views. Kdward G. Mason regretted that the apiwiatmenl was even mooted , as. as a law yer , ho would much prefer to see Judge Grcham remain on the bench. liiilcu ( iresham Mart ! lit Work , Judge Grcsham accomplished a tremendous amount of work in his private office at the government building. From about 10.SO : o'clock in the morning until nightfall his dek was ecu-red with Ihe legal papers In cases which had becn ubmttlcd to his deci sion , and those occupied his undivided ntteu- tlon during iho cnllre day. His callers were nol numerous , and , though they were cour teously received , reference to political affairs met with no encouragement. When the Judge reached his office m Ihe morning he at once locked himself in his room and re mained for same time In consultation with an at oniey who -had called on legal busi ness. He afterward admitted to his cham ber tho.se whose business necessitated n personal interview. . The judge's chamber was m-rhaps the moat comfortable spot in the building. A bright coal tire was burning In the grate , near which. In an easy chair , the Judge was seated. In answer to a query put touching upon the re | > ort that he had acivpled a place in Mr. Cleveland's cabinet as MH-retary of state the Judge replied wllh delibcralion : "I have nothing to "bay. " Other queries met with n like response , the judge politely refusing - ! fusing lo be led Into u conversation on Ihe I subJecU I Around Ihe governmenl building ihoro i was a good deal of simulation as to the ac curacy of the report. "Judging from appear ances it looks very much us if It were true , " said one old court official. "The judge has left his scat in the court of appeals to work on decisions in his chambers and this looks as if he wquted to clean matters up.

Feb. in. [ Ppecl.il Tele gram to THE HIE. ] As has already been re- l > orted , the two murderers , Marks and Un- capapa-Hoy , were brought to Pine Kidgo yesterday. The arrest was made by a nephew of Youne-Man-Afrald-of-His-Horses , Hoar- House , and Short-Bui' ' . They were escorted to the agency by Youug-Man-Afrald-of-Hls- Horses and 21O of his braves. Arriving at the airency they formed a hollow square and Marks , a son of Two Sticks , surrendered his gun to the agent , Captain Brown. Brown turned the prisoners over to United States Marshal Fry of South iJakota , who arrived here with them this morning. The murderers refuse to make any state ment. They arc both young bucks , neither one over 17 years old. They are "blanket Indians , " and belong to the almost extinct band of Broken Bow Siouxs. The prisoners were brought before the United States grand Jury this afternoon that they might exercise their challenges to the Jury. In an interview with Judge John H. Burns , their counsel , he declined to disclose the exact line of defense , but expressed him self as confident of being able to show ujxin trial that the de fendants had no guilty connection whatever with the killing , and have always been well behaved boys , rather than red-handed cut throats as reported. They iilleee that the Indian police gave them no chance to sur render , as they were willing to do , but opened Hre at close range witnout warning or challenge , ana that While-Face-Horse fell dead and Two-Sticks staggered and reeled under the mortal wounds received , while the clothing worn by the defendants was riddled with bullets , but they escaped unhurt and fled to the Indian village , where they were advised by Young-Man-Afrald-of-His-Horses and others that they should go to the "little father , " as Captain Brown Is called , and surrender. ' felt Their I'oiltlon. The defendants , on being .brought into court to present their challenge to the grand Jury , seemed impressed with the solemn im- iwrtance of the occasion , and keenly ob served all that took place. They wore rather shabby clothing , but their scalp locks were ornamented with the usual sacred med icine bag and eatrle feathers. Their counsel removed these , causing a sad look to over spread their dusky countenances. They said they had worn them since they had been able to ride a pony , and by virtue of their mystical influences they had been able to lead happy lives , harming none and being by none harmed. The case will not be tried at present , but will go over to the next term. 1 have Just had an interview with Marshal Fry. who states that he received information that friends of the murdered men would l.vneh the prisoners as they came through Herniosa. He increased nis number of guards iml Just before arriving at Hermosa pulled down the blinds in the passenger coach , locked both doors and stationed himself and Deputy Mathiesoii at the doors. When the train pulled into Hermosa a large crowd was at the. dejiot and seemed to be very anxious to see the prisoners , but Fry told them ho would allow no admittance under any circum stances , and that he meant what ho said. They evidently took him at his word and withdrew. Fry has stationed a death watch over the prisoners , being afraid Two Sticks' son will commit suicide. It is rumored that the grand jury has indicted the prisoners for murder in the llrst degree. Wyoming Cuttle and Politics. Colonel \V. H. Parker , a leading lawyer of Deadwood , is in the city. Colonel Parker was one of the attorneys in the recent cattle difllculty cases tried in Wyoming. Speaking of thematteryesterday.hesaid : "lamof the opinion that the unpleasantness that arose over cattle interests In Wyoming has about run Its course. I believe that those who en gaged In the dlflteulte see very clearly now that it was detrimental to the state and they will not again enter Into It. Those portions of the state most affected by the disturbance constitute the most productive section of the state and It was unfortunate that such a disturbance should overtake the community. " Heferring to the efforts being made In the Wyoming legislature to elect a senator Col onel Parker said he did not believe the body would succeed in reaching au election. Ho thought that the governor would bo obliged to appoint and that would mean a democrat for senator. Indian Murderer * In .lull. EnwAiiDii , S. D. , Feb. 10. Marshal Fryo and deputies arrived from Hushville this morning , having in charge Fights-With and Too-Too , the surviving Indians Implicated In the recent trouble on White river , the latter being a son of Two Sticks. Too-Too made a desperate attempt to strangle himself with a handkerchief at the agency , but was discovered in time to save his life.

[ Special Telegram to THE BEE. ] The World's fair bill went through the house today and while the sum named is not so large as friends of the meas ure expected , ? oO,000 at least Is secured. The bill provides that the commissioners shall be chosen by the governor , senate and house , three each , and bo evenly divided between the three political parties. The senate will certainly refuse to concur in the reduced ap propriation and the sum finally fixed will undoubtedly be about jfO.OOO. Of this f 10.- 000 goes to the women's board , and their success is duo largely to the earnest efforts of Mrs William Duff Haynle of Kapid City , who has been here for the past month. In the house the following bills were in troduced : Providing for the registration of births and deaths , for the formation of building and loan associations , regulating tolls to be charged for grinding grains , and others of less Immrtance. The following bil s passed : Forbidding the killing of game birds before September 1 , extending the boundaries of Custer , Meade and Penning- tou counties so as to absorb the county of Siebach and bring big cattlemen within range of taxbs , and u Joint memorial to con gress praying against any change In the | > vnslon laws.

In the vicinity of Telluride and Silverton. Near the latter place a snuw slide this morning Is reported to have done considerable damage to property. PJJIn addition to the terrible snow slide which killed four men oil the Yirginius road last night , another avallmclie came down at Riverside , on the Mears toll road , accom panied by half a dozen smaller ones , carry ing away the Ouray-Ironton mall stage and horses and a team and sleigh belongln g to Dr. Hereford of this place. The stage driver and Dr. Hereford succeeded in getting out of the snow and reached .Ouray this morn ing.

In western Colorado the storm is the heav iest ever exjierieiicod. and a terrible slide is reiwrtcJ near Breekinridgc. in which two trainmen were killed and four slightly in jured. A South Park railroad crew , with two en gines pushing rotary plows , were fighting snow this morning.- when an avalanche rushed down the mountain side , catching one engine and two plows , and hurling them down the hill. Ensineer Lynch and Fire man Smith were burled beneath their en gine and instantly killed , and Engineers Boynton and MeGreevey , Fireman Rowan ami Brakeman Hawkins were slightly in jured. Engineer Lynen's body has tx-en re covered , but Fireman Smith's remains are still In the snow. , Between Crested Butte and Ruby another slide occurred , and two Italian labbrcrs are said to be covered in It. The passenger train from Monarch to Sa- lida , due at 4IO : yesterday , has not yet ar rived and Us location .is unknown. The snow is very deep on this road , and the train is undoubtedly blockadeu.

President Harrison Will Send H Meimige to Confront on the Subject. WASHINGTON , D. C. , Feb. 10. [ Special Telegram to THE BEB. ] President Harri son , it is stated , will shortly ask congress to annex Hawaii to , the United States. When the report of 'Minister Stevens ar rives here next week it Is the intention to prepare a message to congress reciting the circumstances and incidents which led up to the revolution at Honolulu , the part this country and her representatives took in it and the instructions on which Minister Stevens acted. The message will succinctly present the status of affairs on the Sand wich Islands , and recommend the immediate adoption of an annexation bill. MlnMerSterens * Action. WASHINGTON , D. C. , Feb. 1J > . Ail the mem bers of the cabinet .were present at the meeting today , which lasted nearly an hour. The principal topic discusseJ was the action of Minister Stevens in establishing a pro tectorate over the 'Hawaiian islands. In view of the fact that the next steamer leav ing San Francisco for Honolulu Is scheduled for Tuesday , the Hth iust . U is not believed that any definite action will be taken ap proving or disapproving Minister Stevens' action until the day before the departure of the steamer for the islands. Secretary of State Faster was the first to leave the white house after the cabinet meeting. He Intimated that the government had plenty of time to act ID a deliberate manner , and while the approval or disap proval of Mr. Stevens' action was necessary , yet in view of the possibility of reaching him , other than by letter communication , immediate action in the premises was not deemed necessary. With regard to. the story published this morning to the effect that Liliuokalanl is willing to abdicate and surrender her claims on the payment of indemnity by the United States , it may bo s.iid while the govern ment , in the event of Us .assuming charge of the islands , will doubtless provide for her and the young princess , by an annuity or otherwise , there , will fa no proviiion mudo for ii > demnlfyln&her for any crown property of which sha may be dispossessed by an nexation.

'New York Herald C.ible S [ > ocial to THE BEE. ) The latest attempts of the Corriiran party to discredit Cardi nal Giblnms and diminish the prestige of Mgr. Satolll have caused considerable ex citement. I am in a iwsition to give a most unqualified and authoritative denial to the report that the appointment of the apostolic delegate was directly or remotely brought about by the suppression or delaying of in formation with regard to the opinion of the American archbishops concerning the estab lishment of a i > ermanent delegation. When the question was submitted to the recent confcrencci eleven archbishops pro nounced against a permanent delegation. Archbishop Ireland alone voted In Us favor , while Cardinal Gibbons , with his usual pru dence , held aloof. The IIH islon of the con ference was instantly communicated to Mgr. Satolli. A few hours later he wrote a letter ofllclally informing the Vatican of the vote. This letter was received here loug before Mgr. O'Connell's return. The pope , there fore , did not act in ignorance when he con firmed Mgr. Satolll's powers. Curri uii In IjOtlnt ; CSround. The intrigues of Archbishop Corrigan's adherents , their qulbblings and mlsstatc- ments. have. I fear , offended the pope. Mirr. O'Connell has not been snubbed by his holi ness. On reading of his allegeJ rebuff in the Herald Mgr. Council drove to the Vati can and told the i > opo himself that the talcs were current. Pope Ieo expressed his in dignation and strongly denounced the reports as malicious. ArchJishop ) Corrisan's Roman friends are now tri ing to harm Dr. McGlynn by hawking about accounts of his pre tended irreverence at the recent re ception given by Dr ! Funk of New York. In this connection 1 may briefly answer Father Connolly's disingenuous as- seition that Archbishop Corrigan sent no protest about the manner of Dr. McGlynn's reinstatement to the propaganda.

The Investigation that was inaugurated two days ago has begun to bear fruit , and because of thu revelations made in the house at n tan today , Just before the legislative recess of six days was declared , that recess will have in It no pleasure for someof the members , but on the contrary the intervening days before the re assembling of the twin bodies will be fraught with anxiety and dread.

H lias set on foot an investigation that al ready promises developments of the most startling character , . and names that have acquired a national prom inence have been linked with transactions of a questionable , not to say criminal , character. It has been openly charged that boodle was used , and the use of thousands more attempted to influence the votes of certain members of the legislature , and the house of representatives has set about dis covering who the parties were who at tempted to tamper with the honest.\ Its members. Dung.in proved a most unwilling witness and relied to a considerablo'extent on the coaching of the independents to get him out. of the predicament in which he had placed both himself and them. He evinced an overweening desire not to say more . tlum was absolutely necessary until ho could counsel with them and discuss the situation In all Us "bearings. I To fre quently pleaded the necessity of Betting a drink of water. In order to gel away from _ the witness stand and ask n , question to guide him in getting out of a ticklish position. Ho was finally ordered back to the stand by Oakley with the admonition to stay there , and was told that the member from -f.anca.ster would bring him water whenever it was necessary for him to have a bracer of that kind. lie was very much rattled during his ex amination , but his manifest uneasiness was not to be compared with that exhlDited by certain members , whoso every move Indi cated the desperation of the wild animal that , has been cornered , and on reaching the last ditch turns back to give llnal battle to Its pursuer. The first indication of the approaching storm was when Goss of Douglas called up his resolution asking the scrgeant-at-anns to appear at the bar of the house and explain certain statements made by him in public to the effect that he had an opportunity to handle senatorial boodle money. There wan no objection to the matter coming up. as It had been allowed to go over from yesterday with the understanding that it would betaken taken up today , and a page was sjnt to notify , the sorgeant-at-arms , who was in another part of the building , that his pres ence" was very much uesu-ed by the house. Wami'l Very . \n\lmn to Tell. When he appeared it was remarked that he was very pale , and his appearance Indi cated that he had slept very little , if at all , since the resolution was introduced. Ho was asiccd to step to the front , and , after attempting to make himself heard from the floor , climbed to the platform behind thu desk of the chief clerk. Ho again cleared his throat , and , nerving himself with an ap parent effort , said : ' I would like to take a little time and my own course of reaching this. [ Louder ] I say , ceullcinen , I would like to take my own time and course of reacning this. ( C'rles "go on."J This is not a pleasant dut.x for me. I would rather show up the better side of my brothers than the rough and dirty side. I feel that It places me in probably an un pleasant light before tlu > | > eopleof this state. Some years ago I became so disgusted with the lobby tnat ctianged the condition of things so that Instead of allowing us to 1m paid in the army when the paymaster came around they only loaned 4U cents , on the dollar a 40-cent dollar. That changed after no siirned the bonded note , if you please , from our representatives in congress to pay that. They came and told us to paj it back in 100 cents on the dollar. This Is a lobby done this and ever since I have had It in for them. I believe that the lobby is legitimate. I believe that it Is right if it is on the right track , consequently I do not hesitate in the least to use'those gentlemen Just as I used to use the Johnnies. I have put my coat on my ramrod and drew their tire , but I always felt a Httlo Kid that there was a Johnn'lo dead In front of me. and that a little de parture from what some would probably think was right had l > een the cause of his taking otf.

I pity the poor rascals ; I pity the poor scoundrels that may do the same thing now that they have done before. I pity the man that Is so low that will attempt to do the same thing that these gentlemen attempt to do. Consequently I iiity the page , the youngest of them , that Is not able to detect these fellows. Why , I wonder that every member and even n page is not able to detect these follows. I believe the pages are good and would cull the youngest , a tenderfoot and an intiiX'cnt abroad If they did not put the boodle brand on the right steer.
