of the various appropiiations have all been
agreed to, but proposed new legislation
since incorporated in the measure by the
house, is still act issue, and neither party
manifests as yet any disposition to recede.
The house confeirees urge the merits of the
proposed legislation, while the senate stands
upon its rule which forbids new legislation
upon appropriation bills, and declares,
moreover, that the house propositions in

The naval bill has not yet gone to con-L
fereuce. The senate amendments were dis
cussed by the house committee on appro
priations to-day, and the latter, with two
or three minor exceptions, failed to concur
with the senate. The differences will be
easily harmonized, except for completion of
the monitors, audH.tc for araiajneyit of, the
new cruisers fad mail boats.
Very little more' business, except con
sideration of appropriation bills is to be ex
pected from the present congress, though
friends of several important measu-es iu
the house will endeavor fo secure action on
them. At this stage of the session it
practically requires unanimous consent for
the passage of an inportaut measure, s;-ice
a very small minoiity may, by resorti?,?; to
parliamentary methods, delay and exharst

likely to be pressed upon the attention of
the house are the Grant retirement bi'l, the
bankruptcy bill, the educational bill, the
Mexican pension bill and the national
The committee on elections has signified
its intention of passing election contests,
but there is determined opposition by the
minority, and filibustering will be resorted
to if necessary to defeat their considera
tion. In the senate snch time as is not devoted
to consideiation of appropriation bills will
be taken in disposing of house bills upon the
calendar, preference being given generally
to pension bills. The bill to forfeit certain
lauds granted to the State of Iowa to aid
the construction of railroads has already
been undet discussion, and wi 1 oe urged to
action if opportunity occurs.
The $5,000,000 substitute for the usual
river and harbor bill is in the hands of the
senate committee on commerce, and its fate
cannot be foretold.
Cleveland's Letter a Red Rag to Democrats.
Washington, March 1. Friends of sil
ver in the house, while at first inclined to
make a formal reply to the letter of President-elect
Cleveland recently given to the
public, decided at a conference held this
evening to reply openly to parts of the let
ter with which they do not agree. They
say they did not invite a controversy, but,
on the contrary, were anxious to avoid it.
They also say it was not until it had become
known that a determined effort was being
made to induce the president-elect to com
mit himself and his administration in ad
vance to the gold side of the currency ques
tion that they decided merely to ask him
not to commit himself until his cabinet
was formed, and both sides of the question
could be considered. They proposed at
first, to send a delegate to present their
views to him, but after communicating with
him at his suggestion, they sent a paper
signed by nearly 100 members of the pres
ent congress, and members-elect to the
present congress. No reply was necessary,
they assert, and none was expected. They
further say that while regretting the step
the president-elect has taken in advance of
his inauguration and of the formation of his
cabinet, they do not propose to have a con
troversy unless it is forced upon them.
They believe, however, in the independence
of the legislative branch of the government,
and assert that they will at all times main
The Nlcaraguan Treaty.
Washington, Feb. 26. Friends of the
Nicaraguan treaty wonder what policy the
new administration will adopt regarding
that instrument, as well as commercial
treaties which are dow pending. When
Senator Bayard led the opposition against
the Nicaragua!! treaty in the senate, and
mustered with but few exceptions all the
members of his party against it, much
doubt was expressed as to whether he spoke
fur the administration or not. The fact
that since the time Bayard's appointment
as secretary of state seems assured leads to
the conclusion that in the first instance he
was speaking by authority of Cleveland.
Bayard asked for postponement of consider
ation of the troaty until the new adminis
tration should come into power. In doing
this he might very properly have expressed ;
the wishes of the president-elect. Bayard,
however, also expressed the opinion that
the Clayton-Bui wer treaty is in force and
binding upon this government. It is diffi
cult to understand, therefore, if Bayard
become secretary of state, how he can favor
the ratification of any treaty that proposes
to authorize the construction of a canal by
this government, without, first abrogating
the Clayton -Bulwer treaty. Republican
senators believe that the Nicarauau treaty
will be recalled after the 4th of March, and
that negotiations will be entered into by
the new administration for a modification of
the treaty, and at the same time correspon
dence will be begun with Great Britain for
formal abrogations of the Clayton-Bulwer
Reta.Ua" on Against Germany Aclv'.se J.
Washington, Feb. 27. The house for
eign atlairs committee to-day authorized
Etton, of Connecticut, to submit to the
house a favorable report upon LeFevre's
resolution call'ng for retaliatory action for
Germany's restrictions upon American pro
ducts. Eatou takes the ground occupied
by LeFevre's resolution, that under our
treaties with Germany that country has
been favi red above all others; that discrimi
nation against American products was in
violation of the spirit of those treaties, and
that the situation warrants the action sug
gested iu the resolution.
The Nicaraguan Canal Survey.
V ashington, Feb. 27. Civil Engineer
Menocal, in charge of the expidition to sur
vey the route of the proposed Nicaraguan
canal, reports" to the navy department,
uudei date of "San Jaun river, Jan. 31,"
the arrival ot his camp there on the 22nd of
January. A camp was being established
near the junction of the San Jaun aud
Serapiqui rivers. Some objection was of
fered by officials of the Costa Kican govern
ment to his making any surveys within
Costa Rican territory, without further in
structions from the government, and a spe
cial messenger was sent to San Jose for in
structions. In the meantime survey was
begun on the left bank of the San Jaun
river nd carried to the other si. le. Meno
cal made a careful examination of that river
and tributarie 1 for several miles above the
mouth, which satisfied hiin of the impossi
bility of raising the waters of that river for
the canal by a dam at that point. Surveys
are being prosecuted with encouraging
signs of success.
Garland will be Attorney General.
Washington, Feb. 27. The Star says:
it is stated to-day, upon unquestioned
authority, that Senator Garland yesterday
received -a letter formally inviting him to
accept the portfolio of department of jus
tice, and the senator mailed his acceptance
While no doubt has been entertained that
Garland would be appointed, it appears that
the formal tender of the position did not
reach him aaii yesterday afternoon.

Trouble at New Orleans.
New York, Feb 27. The World's special
from New Orleans says: Official returns of
gate receipts at the exposition during the
week have just -been published, aud are
causing comment. Some of the officers
claim a mistake in the returns, while others
assert a clean steal. Many exhibitors
and state commissioners say they expect a
final crash in a few days. It is all nonsense
to talk of holding the exhibition over for
another season, as not one exhibitor out of
ten will remain a day longer than he is
Prohibition defeated at Lansing.
Lansing, Mich., Feb. 27. In the sanate
to-night a joint resolution submitting a
prohibitory amendment to the people failed
to pass, yeas 18, nays 13, which was not
the required two-thirds. The vote was
strictly partisan, republicans voting yea and
democrats nay. It was then reconsidered
and tabled. It will be brought up again
after the spring election.
The Sharon Divorce Case.
San Francisco, Feb. 27. When the mo
tion to set aside the decree in the Sharon
divorce case came up for hearing, O. P.
Evans, of counsel for defense, stated to the
court that since the motion to set aside the
findings in the case on ground that the
court found that no secret marriage relations
existed between the parties, which was
equivalent to finding that no marriage
existed, the case had been appealed to the
supreme court, and he therefore asked that
the motion be dismissed . It was so or
The Boundary Line betwaan British Colum
bia and Aiasica.
Ottawa, Feb. 27. With a view of ascer
taining what steps the dominion govern
ment have taken to have the boundary line
between British Columbia and Alaska
fixed. Gordon is moving for all corres
pondence that has passed between tho
United States and the Canadian govern
ments in connection with the appointment
of a joint commission for survey of the
boundary line between the British posses
sions and Alaska. He stated that under
the treaty of 1825 between Russia and
Great Britain the boundary was defined as
f dlwing summits of mountains, but when
the summit line exceeded ten leagues from
the coast, the line was to run parallel to the
ocean at a distance of not over ten leagues.
Serious trouble, he say, is likely to follow
unless a survey is made and the boundary
line definately laid out, as settlers are going
into that section of the county without
knowing whether they are locating in
Alaska or British Columbia. Valuable
mineral deposits have been discovered near
the supposed boundary, which are likely to
attract considerable immigration during the
Bad News for British Colombia.
New York, Feb. 24. A Herald editorial
says: "The two commissioners instructed
by the Dom-nicn government to study and
report upou the problem of Chinese immi
gration, as related to the development of
the northwestern wilderness, report strongly
in favor of having all the Chinese they can
get. Hardly any one else ran live there,
and Chinese thrive. The commissioners
endeavor to show that every industry in
British Columbia has been developed by
Chinese labor. To check it or pass any
restrictive measure by which Chinese would
be driven out of the country would be a
death blow to all such industries. Ottawa
specials intimate that there will be a bitter
fight in the house when the report is pre
sented to-day. Although the government
last year disallowed an act of the provincial
legislature restricting Chinese immigration,
they had hoped the commissioners would
have reported favorably, and this session of
the dominion parliament would have al
lowed the provincial act. It is now evident
that nothing further will be done to prevent
British Columbia from being overrun by
' New York, March 2. A gentleman who
called on Mr. Blaine a few days ago, says
he found him in good spirits, and keenly
alive to all that is going on in and out of
politics. He seemed in excellent health,
and said he was going to Europe probably
this summer or fall, from which it is fair to
infer that he will have finished the second
volume of his book.
San Francisco, March 2. The first
trains of the Central and Union Pacific new
last freight lines were put in action yester
day. One thousand cars have been equipped
with air brakes, and it is the iutention ot
the railroad managers to run trains from
this city to Chicago in eight days.
An Order Revoked.
Washington, Feb. 27. The secretary of
the interior has revoked a circular of Octo
ber 23 last, issued by the commissioner of
the land office, refusing to allow amend
ments of pre-emption filings and homestead
and timber applications.
Small Debt Reduction.
Washington, Feb. 87 Owing to heavy
payments from the treasury the present
month for pensions and other obligations, it
is estimated that there will be but a small
reduction of the public debt this month.
Washington, March 2. The adjourn
ment of the Oregon Legislature without
electing a senator for the term beginning
March 4th, and the probability that a suc
cessor to Senator Logan will not be chosen
when the senate convenes next month in
extra session, has caused discussion as to
the powers of the Governors of Illinois and
Oregon to fill the vacancies. The question
arises are these vacancies such as iu the
meaning of the constitution the executive of
the states are authorized to fill by appoint
ment? The legislature of Oregon having ad
journed without electing a senator, there
can be no doubt in the light of the pre
cedents that an appointment made by the
Governor of that state to the vacancy which
occurs March 4th, will be recognized by the
senate, and that the mau who may be
appointed may be admitted as a member of
that body . In the case of Illinois, it is
doubtful whether an appointment can be
made by the Governor while the legislature
is in session and the election of a senator
The Irish in New York.
New York, March 2. An Irish revolu
tionary meeting was held last night and
plans formulated for sending, a brigade to
assist El M.hdi. Only ex-soldiers of the
Fenian army of '69 were present,
body is reticent.
Strangers, In Washington.
Washington, March 2. Fully
strangers are in the city to-night.
coining trains are crowded. The Tammany
delegation marched to Willard's Hotei and
$400,009 for New Orleans.
Washington, March 2. In the senate
to-night an amendment increasing the ap
propriation of the New Orleans exposition
to $400,000 was adopted. At 2 a. m. the
house and the senate are still in session
filibustering the house on the legislative
appropriation bill, and the senate on the
sundry civil bill.
A Bright Outlook for the Pacific Coast,
A cheerful view of affairs politically and
jn a business way on this coast was taken by
Loring Pickering, editor of the San Francis
co Call, while in Chicago recently. He said
T do not think the election of Leland Stan
ford to the senate will commit California
republicans to the railroad cause. The bit
ter feeling against the Pacific road has of
late been dyiug out, as other roads have been
built, the general idea being that none were
making any too much money. That Stan
ford will devote his immense fortune to pub
lic ends is the prevailing impression, which
seem3 to be well grounded. He has a mau
now looking over various plans. Among
them arc plans for a school for mechanical
training of workmen, which will be at Menlo
Park, and a great museum iu San Francisco.
The latter was the project of the dead son,
and his ideas will be faithfully carried out.
Mrs. Stanford has been on the grave's brink
for several years, and I am conviuced that
it is the intention of both she and her hus
band to give the remainder of their lives,
together with their fortune, to the general
good of the state.
Speaking of business on the Pacific slope,
Mr. Pickerinir said: Its entire labor was em
ployed, and all iu all, it was much better
than was anticipated. With the low price
of wheat last fall farmers had turned to pro
ducing other crops which had paid well, and
general industries were looking up. Nevada
was for the time falling back, but as soon as
labor went down to $2 per day instead of 4,
mines could be worked more extensively
than at any time hitherto and the state would
make a shoot upwards. It was hoped that
Cleveland's secretary of the treasury would
rule diiierently on the admission of Chinese
thau had Secretary McCulloch, and this
would remove the last good ground for com
plaint against restriction not being sufficient

Washington., Feb. 20, 1885.
President-elect Cleveland's Cabinet, the
dedication of the Washington Monument,
which took place to-day, and the near ap
proaching inauguration are the prevailing
topics here. As the date of the dedicatory
ceremonies of the Monument drew near,
interest entered around the imposing shaft
erected to the memory of the Father of his
!oun try. But little was done in prepara
tion for the occasion at the Monument
itself. The stand from which the speeches
were delivered, and which was blown down
a few days since was rebuilt. The little
shops around the base of the monument
were removed, electric lights were placed
inside the structure, the elevator was pro
vided with seats, and some other temporary
touches were added for the convenience of
the public. The city awoke this morning
in a flutter of excitement over the event.
Many visitors had come to participate in
the celebration. Citizens, men, women,
nurses and children turned out upon the
streets to see the procession march from the
Monument to the Capitol. It was a depart
ment holiday, and thousands of department
clerks swelled the throngs on the sidewalks.
The procession was the only part of the
dedication with the exception of the pyro
technic display, that the general public
was permitted to enjoy. The oratory
prayers, some special music, and other for
malities were reserved for the Hall of Rep
resentatives, and were necessarily exclu
sive. Congress, the Supreme Court, the
Diplomatic Corps, and other specially in
vited guest monopolized the floor of the
House, while the galleries were given up to
the sisters and the cousins and the aunts of
members of Congress, and to their specially
invited friends. Still, the people did not
care much for that. They could read the
oratory and prayers next day, amid com
fortable surroundings, and the procession
was the most attractive part of it all. The
nodding plumes and brilliant uniforms of
the military, the bright regalia of civic or
ganizations moving about preparatory to
forming in line, floating streamers and the
tumult of brass bands in every direction
presented a striking scene.
About fifteen hundred persons had tickets
to the grand stand at the Monument to heal
th.' speeches there. The stand was decora
ted with flags, banners and b-uting which
flapped noisily in the crisp wintry air. The
pageant was marshalled by Gen. Sheridan,
and during its march from the Monument to
the Capitol, battery of artillery near by,
simultaneously with batteries stationed at
Fort Mver and the Navy Yard, tired a
salute of one hundred minute guns.
The President, Justices of the Supreme
Court, Senators aud Representatives rode
to the Capitol in carriages of uniform pat
tern and decorations, and all the aids
representing states and territories, were fur
nished with horses. About five hundred
members of the President's mounted guard
were in line, and the Grand Army of the
Reuublic was also largely represented. But
the leading feature of the parade was the
part taken by the order of Freemasons,
notwithstanding the recent petition to Con
gress, protesting against any Masonic oh
servance at the dedication, on the ground
that Washington was not in sympathy with
the order during his latter years. As early
as last Thursday the Masons began to ar
rive in the city iu large numbers. The
grand lodges of the various states were
represented, in addition to which the grand
chapels and grand encampments of the
Knight Templars were in attendance.
These bodies with their rich regalia added
greatly to the appearance of the procession.
Throughout the day a collation was served
to which all visiting masons were invited.
At night a banquet was given to the broth
erhood at which the most distinguished
masons in the United States were present,
including a number of Senators and Repre
sentatives, who have held high positions in
Masonry. Only nine members are now liv
ing, who were members of the Senate in
1848 when that body attended the laying ol
the corner stono of the Washington Monu
ment. One of them, ex-vice President
Hamlin, came to sec it dedicated. The
military arrangements of the parade were
particularly complete and effective, and
prove Gen. Sheridan's competency to mar
shall forces for memorial purposes as weli
those for sterner work.
