THE RECENT CABINET MEETING
Candidates tor tho Speakership of tlio
House Trie Farmers' A11I
ancp In Ohio.
M'asiunotos, Jui'e2(l, 1801,
Editor Oi:i:(to.v .Scout:
Jlr. Hurrison bus boon qttito luisy
sinco his rut urn to tho Wliito House
Tuesday, und today ho presided over it
longthy cabinet meeting, at which
linaneial matters wore the pciticiiiul
8ubjcet of consideration. Very little
bas so far leaked out, hut it is prolm
blo that tho course of the adininist ra
tion during tho fiscal year beginning
July 1, was mapped out, and a sort of
agreement made as to ways and means
of making both ends meet and making
as creditable a linaneial showing u
possible in the presidential year.
Neither Mr. Harrison nor his advisor
are idiots, therefore the democrat who
thinks his party can got an issue out
of the condition of the U. S. treasury
next year is doomed to disappoint
ment. Mr. Harrison is a far shrewder
politician than many of his opponents,
both in and out of his party, give him
credit for being; some of them have
already found this out, and more will
do so before November of next year;
and there are few, if any, abler politi
cians than Secretary Foster, to say
nothing of Secretaries Ulaino and
Tracy. These men know that n bank
rupt treasury would inake republican
defeat a certainty next year, anil they
will see that there is no bankrupt
treasury. Seo if they don't.
The news-paper men hero are all
agog to find out what Col. Kobt. G.
Tngersoll and Bonanza J. M. Maekay
paid a mysterious visit to the White
House for, but as yet no one has suc
ceeded. It is more or less amusing, to thoso
who have no personal interest in tho
outcome, to seo how closely tho candi
dates for speaker of the bouse watch
each other, particularly when in Wash
ington. Mr. Springer first came bore,
a few weeks ago, and proceeded to get
a little advertising for his boom by
moans of interviews with tho Wash
ington correspondents; then Mr. Mills
came on, ostensibly to engage in liter
ary work, and got some advertising by
refusing to bo interviewed and by pro
nouncing all recently published inter
views with him to liavo been fraudu
lent; next Mr. Bymun dropped in,
"just to look after a littlo department
business for my constituents," as ho
puts it. Mr. Wilson, of West Virginia,
who while not an avowed candidate is
regarded as one of the numerous "dark
horses," is also favoring Washington
witli a visit, and it is staled that it is
hero that ho will writo thotariir roforin
editorials for which tho St. Louis He
public lias agreed to pay him 1,000 a
year. Mr. Wilson has gotten consid
erable advertising by means of his
statements that tho rank and file of
his party in tho Northwestorn States,
through which ho 1ms recently trav
eled, are for Cleveland. Tho last
speakership candidate to arrivo is Mr.
McMilhn, who is now credited with
being backed by Mr. Cleveland. Ho
says ho is horo simply for recreation.
To beliovo what theso gentlemen say,
not ono of them is here for tho pur
pose of obtaining votes for theniBolvos.
Of course they ought to know bettor
than other people why they aro horo,
but it nevertheless seems a littlo queer
that they should have all happened to
come here at this season.
Kcpresentativo Oatcs, of Alabama,
has tho farmers alliance nightmare
very bad. It stays by him sleeping or
waking. Ho wants his party to fight
tho allianco in tho South, as ho has
been doing in his district. Allianco
men convonmnt witli affairs in his
district nay that Mr, Oatos will nwvor
bo olooted again to congros, and that
ho knows it, ami that is why ho is o
rabidly opposed to tho ulllanou. Hi
ideas liavo not boon openly ondurxod

speaking of him : "If Cullom resem

The looal Federation of Ltibur is not
satisfied with tho answer made by the
commandant of the Washington Navy
Yard to itfl charge that ho had em
ployed two Swedes as machinists in
violation of the alien contract labor
law, and it has requested Secretary
Foster to order an investigation.
At the furiners alliance headquar
ters in this city they will give no
information as to what the alliance is
doing or propo.-os to do iu tho Ohio
campaign; but. it seems to he the gen
oral opinion that it will make a fight
against the re-election of Senator
Shormiin, whether it takes any part iu
the gubernatiuial campaign or not.

Thero was a division in Pino again
this year in regard to tho celebration,
although wo boliovo there was no
Hpecial opposition. Tho people of
Pino and vicinity undertook to colo
brato, but it is scarcely conducive to
union that such remarks wore made
and sot afloat as that "they did not
want any of tho Mormons and 'water
dogs' (tho term 'water-dog' bolng ap
plied to tho members of tho Christian
church, of whom quite a number ro

although wo think that if they would
consider carefully tnaybo thoy liavo
some members ot that church iu their
near vicinity.) Also that "thoy did
not want any Odd Fellows and Hap
tists" and "the people up thoro wero
no account any way." Such a spirit
does not lend to union ami tho conso
quonce was that a number of people
"up thoro" had a social time of their
