BUSINESS WILL GET LIVELIER
Tho Old Statesman Give a Correct Fore
cast of the Commercial Change
about to Happen..
Washington, Nov. 2. There was the
usual avalanche of bills and reports
iiiariung me closing noura oi congress.
The iolnt rnmmlttw nf thi hnnn nil
senate was appointed to notify the
president that if he had no further
adjourn. At 3 p. m. the house adjourn
ed sina die. Before adjournment the
house voted two years' salary to the
widow of the late Chaplain Haddaway.
Washington, Nov. 3. The senate has
passed the house Joint resolution for
final adjournment at 3 p. m., thlB after
noon, so at that, hour the extra ses
sion will close. This resolution was
not passed without opposition. Coke,
Dolph, Harris, Call Mills, Allen, and
Peffer, spoke against adjourning on
the ground that there was important
business which ought to be transacted
promptly. Cullon snld that If congress
would, before adjourning, announce to
the country that it did not Intend
either to repeal the elsetion laws or the
tariff law, It would be doing a very
good piece of work.
(Later), The clock was turned back
six minutes in order to allow the senate
to complete its business, at the con
clusion of which It also adjourned sine
die. The adjournment defeated the
deficiency bill and other pending meas.
The senate adjourned without con
firming the nomination of Judge Horn
blower to the supreme bench. This has
the effect of a rejection.
Washington, Nov. 3. "The adjourn
incnt of this long to be remembered
session of congress brings with it a
treat sense of relief." Senator Voorhees
had been asked by an Associated Press
representative for an interview, and
it was with tho above statement that
he began. Continuing, he said: "We
met amidst a crash of business disas
ters, bank failures, and all .the dis
tressful incidents of ono of the worst
financial panics ever known In this or
any other country. Wo adjourn with
quiet business circles and a fair degree
cf restored confidence prevailing in alii
parts of tho country. It will of course
take time for the various business pur
svits to fully recover from the over-
Lon which have afflicted the country
for the last six months, but signs of a
healthy improvement are now visible
cn every hand, and good omens for the
employment of labor come from all
When requested to state his views
about future legislation, (he senator
only consented to say: "The revision
of the tariff taxation ought now to
follow. The regular session is only
thirty days distant. I predict we will
enter upon a solid and lasting career
of prosperity for the laboring and pro.
ducing masses In every section of our
beloved union." Said Voorhees in re
ply to a question: '
"On the democratic 3ide of tfce cham
ber, while there are very strong differ
ences of opinion, I do not know of a
tingle unfriendly feeling left by the
protracted discussion. Neither party or
ganizations nor personal relations have
been disturbed. We will take up our
work on the, tariff and othev great ques
tions when we meet here In December,
as If nothing had happened to mar
our peace with one another, or to Im
pair our strength for the public good.
Our faith In tho thoroughly patriotic
administration hon never been greater
than now, and to my mind the future
wears a bright and promising aspect."
DYNAMITERS AT WORK.
London, Nov. 3. The fact has Just
been brought to light that on Wednes
day two watermen discovered a coni
cal Iron bomb weighing ten pounds
with a fuse attached, on one of the
abutments of Westminster bridge on
the side next to the House of Commons.
The general belief is that Is was the
intention to damage the bridge. If not
to blow up the House of Commons.
IT WAS NOT TRUE.
Washington, Nov. .3. Private Secre
tary Thurber says that there is no
foundation whatever for , the report
sent out from here to the effect that
a crank had attempted to assassinate
j Presidsnt Cleveland. The police also
pronounce the story false.
VILLARD DENIES COMPLICITY.
New York, Nov. 2. H?nry Villard to-
day published a statement denying the
suspicion cast upon him in connection
with the insolvency of the Northern
Pacific railflo-ul. He assumes a share
policy of tho company, but holds that
tho Increased earnings of tho company
from $8,369,112 net in 1886, and 1S87, to
110,211,142 net' In 1890 and 1891, fully
justified the policy being carried out.
Instead of making money out of the
misfortunes of the Northern Pacific, ho
rays ho lost heavily both in the present
break and in that of 1883.
Another- Interesting Communication
, From the World's Fair City.
i Several days of most busily employed
moments have Intervened' since I wrote
luBt) impressions made for a lifetime
tnopgh seen to keep off the blues for
ever and materials for thought; well
an lnexhaustable supply. One of my
experiences of the occasion was a ride
on thi Whaleback Christopher Colum
bus from Van Buren street, by way of
the lake to the. etxposltion grounds
there were only (4,995) four thousand
nine hundred and nlnety-flve passen
gers mora or less, besides our party of
Ave on board the Columbus, the morn
ing we chose for our trip. It Beemed
a marvelous thing, that one boat could
carry the population of a good sized
city. From reliable authority we had
the f Information that her passengers
that trip numbered about five thousand
She moved so smoothly and steadily
through ths water that it was a most
delightful means of transportation. In
about 45 minutes we reached the wliarf
at" (h grand court of the exposition.
We, landed beside the moving side'
walk, one of the curiosities, entered
and; walked through the "Krupp build
ing.; saw the three immense guns, one
the largest In the world, with all the
paraphernalia belonging to them; went
by way of the convent "La Rablda,"
where are all the relics of Columbus
and his time, and took a good look at
the caravels, Nina, Pinta, and Santa
Maria. On the upper deck of the Santa
Matia was the cutest little bit of a
cannon, about a yard long, and prob
ably six Inches in diameter. The con
trast from the giant "Krupp" gun we
had Just seen to this, was so absurd
ly great that we had quite, a laugh.
The Idea of this little toy inspiring any
fooling of nlarnv in the savages Colum
IuhT expected to encounter, did not
speak well for the courage of the na
tive Americans. I do not believe there
could ba found a Columbia river fisher
man 'who could be Induced to go out
Into the Pacific ocean from the Colum
bia, on a stormy day in either one of
these boats. There la no excuse for try
ing to see tho exposition In parties; two
ere better than six, and one better than
two. There are guards everywhere,
polite and always amiable, and chairs
on every hand.
Our party separated at the adminis
tration building, and a friend and my
self spent the morning in the art build
ing, lunching at the horticultural hall.
There Is such a wilderness of corridors,
rooms, and annexes, filled with paint
ings and statuary of different nations,
that aft'tr walking through the main
hall, I concluded to enjoy the French
section and the loan collection of the
There were three paintings by the
same artist that were - especially my
admiration. "Our Lady of the Angels,"
"The Holy Women at the Sepulchre,"
and the "Wasp's Nest," all by Bon-
gureaq. Then there was the wonder
fully life-like portrait of President Car-
not, by Yoon, and Rosa Bonheur's
"King of tha Forest." This is a noble
rtag, which stands boldly In the very
f otit of the picture, so lifelike' and real
that hla eyes almost flash In your face
and you are sure you can feel the
hair of hla glossy coat. She also has
fome sheep in the United States loan
collection, that ire as fin as the "stag"
but much smaller. In the U. S. gallery
there, was a Gregorian Chart by (lay;
"Return of the Herd," by Howe, and
"The : Flagellants." The latter was a
horrible picture in its realistic effects,
showing th3 length of torture to which
the fanaticism of old Catholic times
would lead its followers, but the ex
pression of horrible ferocity and fierce
determination on the face of the priest
In tho foreground is alone enough to
make tho name of the painter. In the
United States loan collection, Alma Ta-
dema's "Reading from Homer," Corat'j
Flight from Sodom," Daublgny's "The
Cr.oper'3 Shop," Mlllals' "Sheep Sheer-
ers," and "Old SaltE," were wonderful
pictures. I could not .begin to tell the
number of pieces of bronze and mar
ble that especially pleased me. I have
only seen a small part of the big col
lection, but have enough already stowed
away In my memory to last for many
idle n.oments' reverie. An afternoon
was devoted to the French section of
t.he manufactures and liberal arts build
ing, and every moment was filled with
pleasure. We saw the celebrated Dote
vase of bronze, most elaborately and
exquisitely carved. The Harmon Pol-
vior tapestry and furniture display was
something beyond any description of
fine art work In this direction, that I
had ever seen or read about. ' It would
take too much time and space to tell
of the minor exhibits that were so ad
mirable, and rather than weary you, I
will write no more thl time.
