The Senator proposes very radical meth

plates the introduction in the Senate
after the reconvening of Congress of a
resolution, which he will advocate, ask
ing the United States to invite all the
countries of the world Kattern, West
ern and Southern to attend a monetary
conlerence. A new feature ol the pro
mised conference is that it shall not be
restricted to Knronean gold-standard
countries, but shall include the South
American am' Oriental silver-standard
countries. Moreover, the invitations to
the conference are to contain a declara
tion of the United States that the pur
tiose of the conference shall be establish
ment and maintenance of an interna
tional ratio, with a specific declaration
added that if such ratiocannot lie agreed
upon it will he the purpose of the United
States to adopt a single standard, and
that standard not gold, but silver, liv
taking this extreme position, not as yet
advocated in Congress, Chandler thinks
tbe hands of the gold-standard countries

Western World can be forced.
Information has reached tlie Treasury
Department from tlie Appraiser of Mer
chandise at the iort of Chicago that the
transportation companies have failed to
lake away rapidly the portion of iner
ehnndis" t tbe World's Fair Intended
for exportation ; consequently there are
now at least 20,000 packages Tying in tlie
buildings, which cannot be removed bv

ingly asked that the time be extended
for holding the buildings as a construct
ive bonded warehouse, ami the exposi
tion officials have agreed to provide suit
able police supervision for the customs
interests during the period over which
the customs control shall be maintained.
In consideration of these (acts the Treas
ury Department has instructed the Col
lector to continue in control of the goods
referred to until further instructions are
given him. It is said this condition is
the result of bad faitli on the part of the
railroad companies, who promised to re
turn the goods to the sealioard free if the
railroad charges were paid one way. Now
that the fair is over they are indifferent
to tlie matter, and are using their own
convenience and giving other freight
A subject which will receive some con
sideration at tlie hands of the Committee
on Appropriations of the House at this
session of Congress is embodied in a bill
introduced by Sayres, its Chairman, en
titled " a bill to repeal certain laws re
lating to permanent and indefinite appro
priations." Bills having this object in
view have appeared perennially during
the past ten years, but for various rea
sons have failed of enactment. The ob
ject of recalling these permanent appro
priations and having Congress pass upon
matter covered by them each year is
that it w ill conduce to a more thorough
and careful examination of the item of
appropriation than are obtainable under
tho present system by which accounts
are audited and passed upon by account
ing officer, and where no opportunity is
left for scrutiny by tbe Congressional
committee. At tbe same time objection
in made against tbe change proposed by
the bill because of tbe injustice tluit
would result to claimants entitled to the
amounts paid them under the present
system without recourse to specific Con
gressional legislation. The bill now be
fore the committee exclude from its
provisions the various laws therein spec
ified, including the sinking fund and
other appropriations under which
amounts to many million dollars, rough
ly estimated at about one-third of the
total permanent appropriations. The
total annual permanent appropriations
lor tne nscal vear IS.U4 were f 1 1.1.441 lKU,
ami it is estimated for 1SH5 at $101,074.-

I be air of mystery assumed by the
Senate t ommittee on roreign Relations
in its Hawaiian investigation gives the
impression that Morgan's resolution,
under which the impiiry is held, is
merely a cloak for a much' more impor
tant impiiry than any as to the alleged
irregularity of our diplomatic relations
w ith those islands. There in reason for
believing that while presumably the
present quest is for information bearing
Uh)U the conduct of Steven and Blount
there will lie an effort at the name time
to obtain any Information which will in
the first place prove the capability of the
inland for self-government, and in tlie
second the desirability or otherwise of
annexing these islands at some time in
tbe bit inc. It is understood perfectly
by ineniliers of the committee w ho might
have these in view that there is no hoe
of annexing the islands under the pres
ent administration, but those who favor
thin disposition of the little kingdom do
not intend lo tie swerved from their pur
jmse by tbe fact that one administration
is opssed to thin course. Senator Mor
gan. Chairman of the committee, has
been scrupulously careful alxnit express
ing opinions upon the Hawaiian ques
tion, or manifesting a dispoitiou to do
or say anything which would appear
extra-judicial, but he i known to W
firm Indicver in the wisdom of attaching
the islands to thin country a a part ol
il. iu-t an Alaska is at present attached,
and the fact that he ha verv recently
introduced a bill in the Senate providing
a form of government for any acquired
territory lends plausibility to' the sup
position that he in looking forward to
jnwMhilitien far beyond anything in
cluded in the resolution under w hich the
committee is authorized to conduct the
present hearing. A a plausible ex
planation of the origin of the bill, and
without some end like th acquisition ol
Hawaii, it is difficult to find any rennon
tor it existence. Those who know Mor
gan Ust say be i not the man to attempt
lo secure legislation that would fit a sup
ination. It would apHar that when
the committee reports it will, no (a r as
Morgan can direct the character of Un
report, smooth over the events with
which thev are concerned. Meantime

.Esthetic Ideas of the Manage
ment Bearing Frnit.
MAIN BUILDINGS ALL FINISHED.
Ornamentation of the Grand Central
Court Receiving a Great Deal
of Attention Now.
Weekly Circular Letter-So. T
The work of preparation for the Ex
position has now reached a point where
the testhetic ideas of the management
are beginning to bear fruit. All the
main buildings are practically finished,
so far as the details of construction are
concerned, and now comes the matter
of decoration. Charles Graham, the
well-known artist better known, per
fcaps, in the Ea-st than in California on
account of his extensive experience with
the Harpers, and more recently with
the Columbian Exposition has been ap
pointed a director of color for the Mid
winter Exposition, and to him fulls the
duty of suiierintending the decoration
of the Exposition buildings. There has
beea made no effort in this connection
to pattern after the Columbian Exposi
tion. The term "White City" will
never be appropriately applied to this
Exposition. Mr. Graham's idea has
been to let delicate tints predominate,
and to so di-tribute and arrange these
that the peculiar atmospheric effects of
the California climate shall be utilized
to enhance their harmony and increase
their beauty. Warm tones are not par
ticularly necessary in the decoration of
any group of buildings in this glorious
cliin ite of California, and the darkness
of background afforded by the almost
blnck foliage is a magnificent setting
for the delicate tints which are to pre
Some excellent effects have already
lieen partially produced on the main
buildings, although none of them are
yet to be seen in the fullness of perfec
tion. There will be a great deal of gold

enough of it to give the architectural
group the lmme of the "Golden City

Columbian Exposition, and that in the
line of opportunity offered for pictur
esque and landscape effects, the like has
never been fecn m any exposition.
The ornamentation of the grand
central court is also receiving a great
deal of attention just now. The elec
trical fountain is 1 eing installed in one
end, the biisiu for the allegorical fount
in is in place at the other, and the
sculpture will soon be ready to be put
in position. The electric tower has
reached a third of its height, and two
more weeks will see it completed.
Eight or ten inches of rich loam has
been spread over the entire surface of
the grand plaza, and on it will lie sown
tho seed of the flowers and foliage
which are to make this the nu : beau
tiful spot in all the beautiful Golden
Gate Park. There, has already been
transplanted to this grand parallelo
gram a large number of bamboo plants
and date palms that have men artisti
cally distributed, and Have made
favorable impression on the public,
which warrant the assertion that the
picture to be presented within .the lines
of the court, around which the main
building are situated, will lie one of
surpassing loveliness. The enetian
masts, several hundred iu mimlier.
which are to stand like a line of sol
tliery around this court, are already in
position. These are to bear the flag of
all nation by day, and electric arc lights
at night; and between them the sun will
shine npon long lines of parti-colored
streamers, while the darkness of each
succeeding night will be relieved by
long lines of incandescent lights and
fancy lanterns in tho development of
the carnival effects which have been
contemplated in this connection.
Tho work on the concessional build
Ing is proceeding satisfactorily. The
exposition will In? nearer reiulv on open
ing day than ban been the cue of any
Urge exinisitioii in the history of the
world. The management of the Expo
sition are to le particularly- congratu
lated ou the fact that iu the erection of
the 70 odd structures within the Expo
sition grounds, ou which there has Invn
an aggregate expenditure of nearly
tl,000,iHMi, there has, thus far. occurred
no lalmr trouble, no accidents, and not
even an alarm of fire.
The programme for opening day hat
not yet been completed, but the cere
monies will be of a character to war
rant the unbottliug of all the enthusi
asm which San Francisco and the ad
joining cities and towns have Ktu get
Ing up for this occasion. It took the
business men of Snui Kiancico a long
while to wake up to the importance of
thin Exposition, but there is no longer
any room for criticism ou thin score,
audit is safe to say that when opening
day shall arrive the city will be more
gaily decorated and its inhabitant will
turn out more universally than on any
other occasion th.it ha.- marked the his
tory of California.
A feature of the Kxpoaition which ha
now Kvu fully dcvel. ;.! is that which
in to include t lie display of citrus fruit
from different parts of the state. There
are iu the state two citrus fair asnocia-tit'iis-that

Fewer eggs will be gathered if the hens
Fowls two years old are as a rule best
for breeding purposes.
Fowls like mustard Beeds occasionally;
also chopped onions in winter.
Alum dissolved in water is recommend
ed for diarrha-a in the early stages.
Medium-sized turkeys that are in 'a
good condition bring the best price.
Now is the time to fatten and market
all roosters not needed for breeding.
If corn has been put in temporary
cribs, put some sort of roof over it be
fore the heavy snows come.
Kemember that turkeys, beinz much
larger, need more food than chickens.
They also bring more money in market.
Punctuality should be the motto of
the dairyman. Kenularity in feeding
and milking is a prime factor in getting
iue nignesi results.
Plan to farm so as to turn off crona
that take little from tlie fertility of the
farm and give good money returns for
the bulk taken a wav.
The continued dry weather offers a
splendid opportunity to those engaged
in putting in tile. Keep at it until done
or the weather stops further work.
Yonns pullets notablv lav small pcps.
Moral : Breed only from eggs of hens of
full growth and vigor. The same rule
will apply to all domestic anima s.
Went milk the cpretil rn!n? w'h
plenty of fresh bone, cut tine, will make
good poultry if they are kept free from

A few days spent in filling the feed
bins in the barn, in storing up bedding
material and making things convenient
about the place will save time and ex
posure in doing chores when more dis
agreeable weather arrives.
WISTKRISO THE CALK.
The first year of a calf's life determines
to a great degree its value as an animal
for profit, says Western Plowman. If it
is permitted to run with the cows, steers
and older cattle, where it will be jostled
about and made to stand back from the
feed until such a time as it can get to
take up the refuse left after the Btronger
have had their choice, an unprofitable,
stunted calf will be the result. The calf
must have its own shed, its own feed lot,
its own ration of grain and its own rack
of hay; when supplied in thus way with
a proper amount of feed of good quality,
it will grow through every month of tlie
year and yield a profit to its owner. As
the calf grows the feed must be gradually
increased. The importance of a change
of feed at this time must not be over
looked. Give a little oats and barley
occasionally. Shelled corn is a good feed
for the calf, as are also cornmeal, bran
and shorts ; but do not give one variety
of grain food continuoiHy. Give a
change occasionally. The sooner the
calf can grown up to cow or steer size
tbe more profit there ia in the business.
Give the calf a chance.
Poultry raisers should always save
the feathers, and in the shape that
brings the highest prices. And dealers
prefer to have the feathers from
the goose, duck and hen picked dry. If
they are scalded, dealers prefer to do
their own dressing, as in many cases it
is not thoroughly done by the poultry
men and redressing is necessary. But
always save them dry picked if possible.
Scalded geese are worth from 5 to 10 cents
per pound less than dry picket!, ducks
from 3 to 5 cents less, and chicken feathers
are worth about half price. Turkey
feathers are also quite valuable. In
picking these save all the feathers that
grow on the tail; also in the two joints
of the wing next the body. The
pointed, one-side quills that grow on the
outside or tip of the wing sell at a low
price, and should be kept separate. In
packing lay the feathers in straight in as
light boxes as possible. Do not stuff
them into bags, as it breaks them. Be
fore packing weigh your boxes with the
covers, marking the weight in plain fig
ures on the side.
KEQl'ISITKH OF A SrccESSFUt FARMKJ.
To be a most successful farmer a man
should be well posted and well educated.
There are few branches of knowledge
from which he cannot draw in every-dav
life. In the natural sciences the gradu
ate of the highest institutions of learn
ing in the land will find in the ordinary
work of the farm a post-graduate course
w hich will Ins more practical and thor
ough than that prescribed in the curric
ulum of any of our schools. The
introduction of a line ' of study in
in this direction given at our schools can
be carried on indefinitely and to decided
advantage. A knowledge of entomology
will assist the farmer in determining
among the insects which surround him
his friends and his enemies, and being
able to protect the one and destroy the
other may be of great value. The eame
is true in regard to birds, beasts and
reptiles. It is along this line that an
education may be put to practical use.
Intelligent effort is always rewarded.
