HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
The National Capital Pratic
EVEN SIGHTSEERS VERY SCARCE
The Charm of FestlTities of Cbrlstakas
at Home the Magnet for the
Washington, Dec. 24. The capitol
waa practically deserted today. Only a
few rambling sightseers, the capitol
police, and now and then a stray senator
: or representative woke the echoes of its
spacious corridors.The charm of the fes
tivities of Christmas at home was the
magnet that had drawn every one who
could leave from the congressional grist
mill. Only the members and the sena
tors from the far West, and those whose
families are in Washington remained
here. Seveial' of them were at their
desks for a short time today, examining
their mail, but they had put their con
gressional labors behind them and mat
ters congressional were in a state of sus
pended animation. Speaker Crisp was
in his room in the' rear of the hall of
representatives about noon, dictating
answers to letters, but he was almost
the only member in the vicinity of the
capitol today. Mrs. Crisp and her son
and daughter are here to eat their
Christmas turkey with the Speaker. He
will remain here throughout the holidays.
No committee work will be done at
either end of the capitol during the re
cess. Senator Blackburn says the com
mittee on rules, of which he is chairman,
wll sot take up the question of a cloture
rule or any other subject until January
1st. The Kentucky senator left the city
today to remain until congress convenes.
Some work will probably be done on the
appropriation bills yet unreported by
Chairman Sayres and some of the mem
bers of the subcommittee, but their
work will be subject to ultimate revision
when the full committee meets.
St. John's K. F., Dec. 24. The finan
cial complications here received a new
development today from the announce
ment in a telegram, published in a gov
ernment organ, to the effect that a bill
to guarantee the Union bank's paper
currency would be introduced in the
legislature soon. The schemes put tor
ward for solving the financial difficulties
multiply daily, the latest of which is
the establishment of a new bank, the
present concerns going into liquidation,
and their paper being taken over by the
new bank at its valuation. ConBider
ble opposition has already developed
toward the proposition for the govern
ment to extend aid to any banking in
stitution, whether solvent or insolvent,
and what the result of this opposition
will be remains to be determined. The
Union bank still stands high in the
general estimation of the public and its
notes are being taken in trade every
where, but the agitation for the prose
cution of the directors and the manager
of the suspended Commercial bank
. shows no signs of cessation. It is im
possible now to send postoffice orders
either to Europe or to America, as the
postal department here has no means
of transmitting money.
Refused to Fay The Tax.
Santa Rosa, Cal., Dec. 24. There
, ws considerable excitement today over
. the sale of the delinquent tax property,

heart of the city. J. H. Brush, presi

pot and much other property. Other

cer, W. G. Oldham and Max Heymann,

will be interesting litigation growing out
of the sale of this property by the
Told His Secret While drunk.
Ebie, Dec. 24. The ringleaders in
the gang of masked burglars, who, a
week ago, beat and bound, and under
fearful torture secured the $10,000 which
David and Sara Slocum had laid up for
a rainy day, have been captured. They
are Frank Anderson, a farmer living
within two miles of the scene of the
robbery ; Ralph Vansaler and Jeremiah
Casey. Anderson and Vansaler were
captured together at the house of the

for his cups loosened his tongue dis
armed his secretiveness and gave the
clue which resulted in the capture of the

mounted and rode away, going east.
It was feared they would rob the passen
ger train, which was due but it pulled
