Washington, Dec. 34th, 18SS.
Before leaving to spend Christmas at his
Georgia home, Senator Colquitt said that
if Harrison was looklne for a respec
table Southern republican for his Cabinet
he could not do better than to seieti
1 1 Ruf.lt nf Atlanta.
Th rm.hliran Senators, true to the tra-
am, thi.ir nartv. clayed a confidence
game in order to get a date set for the final
vote on the Senate tariff bill. They held
a caucus and decided against taking a
rhrl.t.. recess. Ther then appointed a
committee to confer with the democrats,
Intruded that committee to offer to
vote for the recess provided the democrats
would agree to set a day for the final vote
th tariff bill. The democratic oena-
not H.drincr to retard other necessary
willsHnn in the hopeless effort of trying
to prevent the passage of the tariff bill,
agreed to take the final vote on that meas
ure January 21st. Then the republicans
voted for a recess from last Friday to v ed
nesday, January 2nd. Had the democrats
refused, the Senate would have been only
nominally In session during the Holidays,
as no power on earth could have held a
auorum of the Senate here during tne
TTolidavs. However, the action of the
democratic Senators is generally commend
ed here, because everybody Is heartily sick
and tired of tariff talk, and the republicans
of the Senate were fully determined to
nass the bill before taking up anything
else, therefore the sooner it is over the bet
That large portion of the republican par
tv known as the "workers" and the "boys
are terribly alarmed at the indications
which now point to another reign of the
"e-oodv-coodv" element in the White
House. Rutherford B. Hayes has been
nratrn-eil out of the obscurity Into which he
o n -
had naturally gone.and will, it is said, be a
power with Harrison. Hayes, it is well
known, hates Blaine with an intensity as
great as it Is possible for his small brain to
hold, and has never forgiven him for al
luding to him during his occupancy of the
White House as "that man Hayes ;" there
fore, it is not at all surprising that Hayes
should be workine actively against Blaine.
Piatt, of New York, is also obnoxious to
Hayes. In fact about nine-tenths of the
republican party are In a fair way to get
left out In the cold, and a scare of the big
cest sort has been developed among them
by the news from Indianapolis. Whether
there It any real cause for this scare among
the working republicans I am not in a po
rtion to sav.but I will say that if Harrison
attempts to make up his cabinet, leaving
such men as Blaine and Piatt out, he win
deliberately walk Into the worst hornets
nest he ever saw, and will make himself
more unpopular with his party, if such a
thine be possible, than Hayes was when he
was President. This Idea of a candidate
being better than the rank and file of his
nartv Is all "ooDDveock." and has resulted
in nothing but failure for every President
that has ever attemoted to follow It. Let
Harrison take warning.
Ex-Senator Mahone still flits throueh
the corridors of the Capitol, almost dailv.
but he is generally looked upon as a "dead
cock In the pit.
Tohn Sherman made a speech to a negro
club the other night, advising them to ac
quire education and property in order to
obtain the respect of the world. John eot
his education while young.and the most of
his property while Secretary of the Treat
urv. so that row he is both educated and
rich, and yet. there are many people who
cannot respect John Sherman.
I understand that negotiations hare al
ready been closed for the purchase of the
Washinirton Past bv James G. Blaine, with
a proviso that they are off If he goes Into
the cabinet. In other words, If Harrison
leaves him out Blaine nroncses to make
the White House a very warm place for
'Little Billy" Chandler has been present
ing more petitions to the Senate from al
leged citizens of South Carolina, setting
forth the fact that the petitioners were at
the last election denied the right to vote. A
curious thing about three of these petitions
was that all 01 tne signatures were in tne
same handwriting. Perhaps "Little Billy"
has tstabllsded a petition factory of his
' President Norvin Green, of the Western
Union Telegraph Company, is reported to have
discovered a remedy for rheumatism. That
coquettish maiden, Mme. Rumor, says that he
wears a peice of copper in his shoe under one
heel and a piece of zinc under the other. Thus
havingthe twopolesofabattery a gentle current
of electricity is constantly playing through the
genial President's anatomy and neutralizing the
effects of the agonizing rheumatic pains. It is
said that the copper and zinc do their perfect
work so eently that Mr. Green experiences no
annoyance; in fact, he is not aware that he is
carrying an infant battery around with him.

Fmm the accounts of the trials with the
Campbell air ship it is evident that a decided
advance has been made in aerial navigation. It
may be scientifically impossible to control a
vehicle in the air, but a good many ot tne mod

by the learned rut-workers, and they have gone
right along, just the same. It is claimed mat
without wind there is perfect control, and tha.

What will be done with the Senate tariff
bill when it reaches the House ? Is a ques
tion that is exciting considerable discussion
just now, but owing to the absence of all
the leaders the talk Is only conjecture. The
republicans will, It is said, attempt to get
in Immediate vote upon it by moving that
the House concur. The democrats, It Is
generally thought, will antagonize this
with a motion to non. concur, and send to
a conference. If the bill gets Into the
hands of a conference committee that will
be the last of It.
