effort is bolntr made to mneh a conclusion as
to the state's apportionment. There are
twenty-odd thousand dollars In the bands of

that tbo question may not ho determined

The receiver has filed n detailed report
upon the condition of tbo bank , but the HK-

Tonight it was decided by the democratic
members of the way.'f and means committee

This action was brought about by Secretary
Carlisle , who lias opposed any increase from

Kcprrscntattvq Melhlojolm called upon Sec
retary Holto Smith and the eonunlsbioncr of
the ceneral land ofllco today for the purpose
of le.iriiint , ' , if possible , the final determina
tion of the questions which arose in con
nection with the consolidation of certain
land ofllco districts in Nebraska , especially
respecting tlio protest which was made
against the transfer of the Clmdron district
to Alliance. After interviewing the secre
tary of tlio interior nnd the land commis
sioner , Mr. Meiklejohn said to THE Ucu cor
respondent :
' There Is no question in my mind about
the transfer of the Grand Island district to
Lincoln , XeligH to O'Neill. IMoomington to
McCook andChadron to Alliance , as fixed In
lite proclamation of September 11 last. Both
the secretary of the Interior and the com
missioner of the general land ofllee gave mete
to understand that they did not contemplate
any change in thcso consolidations and I
suppose the light over the Chad ran problem
will be a failure. "
Incidentally Mr. Mellclcjohn talked to the
secretary of the interior and the commis
sioner of the land onico about changes In the
Nebraska land ofllco. Ho was given to
understand that with probably one excep
tion all eflloicnt ottlcers will bo permitted to
" serve out their commissions. The exception
is in the North Platte ofllee , where , it will
be remembered , when HoRlster Ncsbltt was
Incapacitated. Kocoivcr Baldwin was made
register and Mr. Woodhurst was appointed
receiver on February 11 , 1803. These two
onicei'8 , it was stated , will bo shortly re
tired and democrats put In their places. The
matter of tilling tlio Nebraska land ofllces
with democrats is to bo taken up within the
next ten dajs or two weeks.

WASiiiXfi'iox , Dec. . The democratic
members of the ways and means committee
wcra In session thrco hours this afternoon
reviewing the tariff bill , correcting typo
graphical errors and other incongruities ,
The bubcommlttco on Internal revenue
reported that Its labors were not yet com
plete. , nnd that It would bo impossible to
reach Its schedules before some time next
week , the chief difllculty under which the
commlttco labors being the Impossibility of
llxlntf rates of taxation until the re-venue
estimates under the now bill arc so far corn-
Dieted ns to indicate ttio probable
deficit under its operations , The democratic
mumburs did' not enter into the
linal discussion of the Income tax
iiucbtbu as was anticipated , the chief reason
being because of the absence of Mr , Coclcran ,
It was thought best that no conclusion
should bo reached In the absence of any
democratic member , as the committee is
nearly divided on bomo phases of the propo-
fcltlon , The uncertainty as to the amount of
thu deficit under the now bill uud the possl <
bio dtftU'iilty of meeting this deficit has
Kivcn risaafrain to thodiecusslon as to the
wisdom of making the Income tax Konornl In
character and applicable to all Individual in
comes in excess of tf.GOO per annum , Instead
of restricted to corporations and successions
only. So that nt this time the income tux
plan Is still In a very Indefinite condition ,
Why the Ail Valorem Duty \Vui Adopted.
An argument has been provoked by au
thority of thu ways and means committee ,
showing from a democratic standpoint the
necessity of the. changes effected by the now
administrative bill Just reported by Chair
man \Yllson and his colleagues. This argu
ment gives a full explanation of the reasons
why the comuiitteo in Its recant tariff bill
abandoned the specific duty In so many cases
in favor of an ad valorem duty.
The democratic party , this circular contends -
tends , Is charged with grave responsibility
of effecting a comiileto revision of tlio exist
ing customs tariff , 10 the end that the
burdens at taxation , tendered heavier bv
the McKlnley bill , may be Hphtencd. The
McKiuloy bill was not the only legislation of
the Fifty-llrst congress which tauscd dis
satisfaction among merchants and Importers.
The past-age of the customs administra
tive act , Involving ns U did an entirely
liow departure In customs administration ,
caused in the mercantile world , temporarily
at least , as great or greater annoyance- than
did even tbn McKinluy bill. Croat pressure
will bo brought to bear to sec nro its repeal ,
08 well us that of lu twin lster. Such a
move would receive support from many me r-
chants , regardless of their political afllila.
ItndlcHl lleilitctloim linptrntlve.
Continuing1 , the circular savs : "At the
present day the proper administration nnd
interpretation ot the customs laws becomes
politically of the most vital Importance to
the doinocr.illc .varty , lladlcal tariff reduc
tions are Imperative ; but an tmormous reve
nue , nt least J' > ( XOC,0X ) ( ) ( ) yearly , must still bo
raised through the tariff for the support of
the government. It In plain upon reflection
that this vast amount can only bo collected
by n rigid Interpretation and administration
of any now law which Is to be subntltuted
for the existing tariff. The effect of specific
duties Is alnlost coinnletely to stop the im
portation of lowcu grades of goods , which
nro used In by far the greater quantities ;
thus much revenue Is lost and the cost to
the masses unduly Increased : Ibis effect is
seen uuon all goods upon which the specific
duties nro levied.
"Ad valorem duties , levied on the value
of the imported goods , nvo the fairest , most
equitable kinds of duties , the rate Is abso
lutely the same on all tirades of goods of the
same kind , tint the dUadvaut.tco of such
duties Is that they offer a great temptation
to Importers to undcrrnluo goods on enter
ing them In our ports. An n result , many
Koods got into the country at lower rates
than nro legally duo , thus discriminating
against merchants who pay full dutiable
rates. The tiollcy ot the democratic party ,
when In pouor , from earliest times has been
to substitute ad valorem for specific duties.
This was shown lu the celebrated Walker
tariff of ISM. which consisted entirely of ad
valorem duties ; this same tendency is shown
In the Springer wool bill passed by the tiouso
of representatives , which placed wool on the
free list , changing thu duty ou wool from
wholly specific to a.l valorem. "
Drfccts f tlio 1'ro'cnt l.nw.
The following are pointed out as the prin
cipal dufivts of the present customs admin
istrative act :
The right of trial by jurv upon questions
of fact , arising upon tlio question of classifi
cation , has been taken away from the im-
The f-overmnrnt Is allowed to appeal from
an.v decision of the circuit court to the cir
cuit court of appeals , whllo the Importer
ran only appeal provided the circuit court
thinks the question Involved is of sufilcicnt
Importance to warrant an appeal.
The existing law levies duties upon the
value of all cr.ites , sncks and coverings and
buxci in which the Imported goods are
stored , thus tncrcaslni ! the total duty levied.
In case the value as determined by the
appraisers exceeds tiu value entered by the
importer by more than 10 per cent a penal
duty of - per rent ou the appraised value , In
addition to the corrected legal duty , Is
levied for cvory 1 per cent that such ap
praised value exceeds the value declared at
Tlio Importer Is now allowed the right to
bo present at the hearing before tlio board
of general appraisers upon questions of
If judgment Is rendered by the courts in
favor of thn importer upon an appeal , the
excess of duties is refunded to him without
allow unco of interest or costs.
Uho present law repeals all damage allow
ance upoji goods in transit.
. .Most of the above objections are removed
by tbo new ad ministrativo act prepared by
the democrats , and the oflleiul report accom
panying the bill will contain exhaustive
arguments to .sustain the changes.

ence of Tun Hnn.i ( .Jrovor Cleveland will
head the democratic national ticket the
fourth tlmo In IS'.il , luri-ln ; accident. Kv 3ry
day some direst evidence of this fact crops
out In the ofllolal action of the president.
When It was proposed In 1H"0 to rim
Ulysses S. Grant for a third term It will be
recalled that the original mugwumps and
the copperheads arose In nrms nnd declared
that It was the pnrpoio of General Grant
and his ft lends to niaku this icpubllc a
monarchy and to create in Grant the king.
There was-talk of violence to put down the
public uprising In favor of "cnthronliiK
Grant. " The men who are now humbly
bowing obels'inco and making silaatns to
drover Cleveland were the most Inllnmma-
bio and excitable opponents against a third
term for Grant , How a few jears Imvo
changed the minds of men ! 'J'hero Is not a
word uttered against , tbo proposition to
"unthrone Cleveland" In Ib'J * . and not a
bre.tth of suspicion is bre.ithed nbaut a
monarchy or a kingdom.
Cli-veliintl'K 1'rcullnr MrtltniM.
When President Cleveland last March In
timated that ho intended to break up this
gauss and rclog'ito thu ringsors ! and bosses
and bring forward men who were above
waul working , tbo democratic party leaders
said bo was either mad or determined to
close the ciiroer of hN party. They openly
announced that "surely Cleveland doesn't In
tend to overrun ng.iiu for the presidency. ' ' It
seemed that he intended to turn his back not
only upon all the methods which had bocn
employed to give his party success at 1 ho
polls , but the very men who had secured the
success by looking after tbo details. It was
declared that ho had suddenly grown belter
than bis party.
When be began to make his appointments ,
after bo bad chosen his cabinet , whi-rrIn bo
had not exercised bis llnest scrutiny , it was
discovered in most instances that tin- big
ofllces vu.-ni to tbo personal friends who bail
boomed Cleveland in Chicago In IS'.1 ' ) and
who were not ttio bosst-s.
Anxious to Scno AK : > | II.
There was method In that madness. 1 have
It upon the word of n congressman wno is in
the coDlidcnco of the president that when
the subject of a third term was broached to
tbo latter during the past few days Mr.
Cleveland's eyes sparkled as he observed
something couched in words very much lik
these :
"Do you believe they would want mo foi
another four rears in tbo white house ; "
When ho was assured that ho was un
questionably "tbo logic of the situation , " the
president again gave evidence of his pleas
ure and made an observation in. effect like
this :
"Well , that is pleasant ; but you know the
next contest is nearly three years ahead
of us. "
In a number of ways , in several delicate
forms of phraseology , the president not
only intimated that bo thought that n third
term for him was among the possibilltiesbut
that ho actually expected his work to grow.
The president believes that be has broken
down tbo barriers of his party In manv di
rections , and that ho may bo the forcible as
well ns the logical candidate. Ho says lie
has cast aside tbo bent of bis party in favor
of inflation and lint currency , and if bo
defeats state bank circulation in spite of the
endorsement of it by the party's national
platform he will , having broken down the
old policy of f reo silver coinage , bo the only
standard bearer for the reconstructed demo
cratic party ,
Cleveland Out-l'IcvolniuU Himself.
The republicans who were dissatisfied
with the manlier in which President Harri
son distributed the oftlces and the demo
crats who involshcd against President
Cleveland during his iirst term for not hav
ing given out tbo loaves nnd ilshes with that
ghoulish glco which bellts a thoroughbred
spoilsman should como to Washington now
and compare notes with the ward strikers
who have for six or eight months been try
ing to got ofllee under the present adminis
It is reported that the rocqinuicnditlons
of democrats in congress constitute no guar
anty whatever thai the democrats selected
by communities will bo appointed to ofllre.
President Cleveland , with a sweep of his
hand , not only brushes away oflieo seekers ,
but with a stroke of las band be undoes the
wishes of state and county committees and
party organizers and party representatives
In congress. Another feature of bis arbi
trary action in respect to appointments Is
his absolute refusal to indicate when he wilt
iill an ofllco. Ho will sometimes tell those
who approach' him that ho docs not intend
to make an appointment for a given time ,
but lie flatly refuses to say bo will act at
that time.
Outside of Now York the machine has
suffered terribly under this administration.
At Cincinnati and Chicago , as well as
Indianapolis and Philadelphia , tbo president
lias overlooked tbo wishes of the "gang. "
In Now York the anti-snappers bavo been
Klvcn places with bcrnpulous carp. 'I hero
the president has rewarded his friends and
attempted to bicak down the Hill-Murphy
machine. H looks as though wo had almost
reached an epoch in olltee-glviug at the
white liouso wherein strikers and bosses
were over to bo Ignored.

Men are often cut out of prominent federal -
oral appointments by mere Incidents. And
after a man is nominated to an onleo tils
nomination is often defeated in the senate
by accident. A few days ape it looked ns
though ox-Congressman Frank Lawlor of
Chicago was sure to ho maito postmaster of
the Garden City. Ho had the endorsement
of Senator Palmer , all the Chicago congressmen -
men and sovornl miMiiber.s of the Illinois del
egation odtsido of Chicago , ox-Mayor Harri
son , a majority of tbo aldermen of the city ,
allot the presidential electors of the state
and a majority of tbo delegates to the na
tional convention , In addition to thcso bo
had n petition of 153,000 names of Chicago
citizens the greatest testimonial ever filed
for any man for office- .
And yet Mr. I twlcr failed , because of the
personal influence of one man with the pres
ident , who had back of him several start
ling facts at hl command , This man , ac
cording to popular rumor hero , was Melville

Icr was a member of the city council of Chicago
cage Air , Stone madu war on him anil several -

Mr. L-wlei1 was to bo appointed postmaster
Mr. Stone came on to Washington and went
to the wblto liouso , where ho Is always wel

had n certain array of faots yery-damagini : to

committee if necessary and support by his
