News of tho Week From Our Regular Cor
respondent at tho Capital.
Wasiunhton, September i", 1MH.
Enrroit OitKcoN Scour:
Mr. Harrison has kept everybody on
the tiptoe of expectancy all this week,
but further than a few minor appoint
ments and the scmi-olHcial announce
ment that M. M. Kstee, of California,
is to enter the cabinet when it is nor-
ganized, no important aiinouneenientfi
have been made, although every day a
number of important, appointments
are expected to be made. There is a
continuous Mi cam of prominent call-
ers at the White House every day, and
fewoftheni leave without putting in
an argument for some friend who is
an applicant for some ono of the large
number of specially desirable places
now at Mr. Hauison's disposal. It is
probable that a large number of ad -
visors, many of whom are here, with
out being sent for, are responsible for '
tho delay in making appoint moots. i
Thero is a wide discrepancy between
statements made by two prominent
citizens of North Carolina, both at
present in this city, as to the present
attitude of the fanners' alliance of Unit
state towards the thud party move-
inont. Une ol tlieni, Senator liansoin,
who is strongly opposed to both tho
demands of the alliance and a third
party, says thero is no third party in
tho state and that there will bo none,
because the members of the alliance,
with thu exception of a few domn-
gogues, are all democrats and will eon-
tinuo to bo. The other gentleman,
Col. L. L. Polk, who is president of the
national farmers' alliance and inestim
ably acquainted with tho intentions of
tho organization over which ho pre
sides, says tho alliance in North Caro
lina, as well as in tho other Southern
stales, is prepared in a certain contin
gency to enter heartily into the third
party movement. Tho contingency ia
that both tho old parties shall refuse
to recognize the demands of I he alli
ance. Which of these two men ought
to be best posted on this subject?
Ex-Kopresentativo (Deacon) White,
who was at the head of tho Now York
firm that went under this week on ac
count of its failure to corner Septem
ber corn, wtis well known in Washing
ton, where ho served two years in tho
House of Representatives, nominally
representing a Brooklyn district, but
in reality directly representing tho
speculators of Wall street, lie has
been charged, and his actions con
firmed tho charge, with having pur
chased a nomination and electiiou to
the Hou60 for tho single purpose of
gaining an entree to tho floor to lcok
after the interests of himself and other
speculators. While a membor of tho
House he was novcr heard from except
there was legislation up that affected
his interests. Then ho never failed in
a singlo instance to stand up unblush
ingly and advocato what would put
money in his pookot. Since his term
expired he has visited tho capital as a
lobbyist whenovcr thero was any like
lihood of legislation affecting Wall
street. It is a hit of retributive justico
that he should have lost his fortune in
grain speculation, aftor ho had been
instrumental in defeating tho bill,
which was beforo tho last congress, to
prohibit dealing in futures" and "op
tions" on agricultural products. It
was charged at the time that ho was
tho disbursor of a largo fund raised in
Wall street to "Hang up" tho bill,
which had been endorsed by tho re
publican caucus and which appeared
certain to become a law. Ho openly
made his boast that ho had put tho
bill whero it would not bo hoard from,
and it was not heard from again, not
withstanding tho offortB of its author
ex-Itopresentativo Iluttorworth and
others to get it beforo tho House.
Washington has this week enter
tained two distinguished national
bodies -Tho American Congress of

exhibit niado of nearly ono thousand
varieties of improved fruit raised by
