Chicago, Ills. Nov. 14. A Washing

Sterling Morton and Hoko Smith have
tendered their resignations to President
Cleveland as members of his cabinet.
The reasons assigned were the radical
and emphatic disagreement of these
two geutlf men with President Cleve
land's Hawaiian policy and thecoun-
teuance given to restoration of the
queen. President Cleveland through
Carllslo and Gresham has prevailed on
the braco of disgruntled statesmen to

A Diplomatic Denial.
Washington, D. 0., Nov. 14. Con
cerning reported dessension in cabinet
it can be said Morton is in accord with
president on his Hawaiian policy, and
that Hoke Smith has not given reason
to suppose ho entertains opinions differ
ing from those of the president on the
Washington, Nov. 14. It is no
eept d as Inevitable that the Hawaiian
In Ident will come up in con resa as
oon as the session opens. All Indlca
iio s of d vision will be on strict party
lines. Republicans tahe Cleveland's
position to be a reflection on Harrlson'i
action in the premises, ond will doubt
less attack him thervfor. Democrat
expect this, and are preparing to be
nut on ihe defensive. Tho Democrat
believe, at the opening of congress
Cleveland will send In a message, in
which he will make public many facte
hitherto unknown in this country,
which may put the casein an entire
new light. This is expected, especially
in view of the fact that Commissioner
Blount's report has never been given
Congressman Geary, of California, a
member of the committee on foreign
,.fTir. lodov said: "All the facts are
not before the people yet, and I would
prefer to say nothing until later."

and salt will be added to tho free list.
But the committee jealously guard the
list of manufactured articles, that are
to go on the same list. Sugar is still
under consideration, though so far the
tendency is to repeal the bounty and
put it on the free. Iron and coal men
continue to protest against placing
those articles on the freo list. BUnd,
of Missouri, Culbertson, of Texas, and
others have openly annouuoed their In
tention of opposing free wool.

immense meeting at Portland Saturday
night and published In tho Orogontaii
'On tho 2d Inst, wo called upon tho
county ofilclalB, the first official being
the oounty clork. Your oommlttoo
stated the purposo of Its mission to Mr.
Powell, who lu reply to our question
why tbo semi-annual statement of tho
dnanuial condition of tho county had
not been published for tho months of
April and October, 1893, stated that It
Uad not beon customary to publish
these statement. After reading the law
to Mr. Powell, the fwnatty for Its viola

would publish a statement, ho said he
would, if ordered by tho county oourt,
ifter which tho committee pointed out
that tbo county court had nothing todo

on tho clerk to have it published,
"Tho committee called upon Sherlft

Northwest Loan & Trust Company's
bank, $148,717.88 in the Oregon Nation
al bank and 2000 In the Union Bank
mg Company, in ull 1310,041.12. He
was asked why tbeso funds were not
available, to which ho replied he could
uot check against them as It would
close the bauks. Ho was fdrther asked
whetbor he had any monoy whloh could
be turned Into tho school fund, and he
replied that the banks had promised to
raise (50,000 by Dec, 1.
"The following day your ooommltteo
ascertained that tbere wore some funds
doposited by the treasurer In one of the
banks. We made a second visit to the
treasurer's office on the 3d and mado
further Inquiry In regard to this matter.
vVe Informed the treasurer that we were
aware that he had some funds In one of
the banks, and Mr. Malarky, upon sec
ond thought, said he did havo some
state funds, but that we had nothing to
do with that. We then ask ed Mr. Mai
arkey whether the state treasurer had
receipted for the same. Ho said no.but
that there was an understanding be
tween Mr. Metsohan, state treasurer,
and Mr. Loewenberg, of tho Merchants
National bank, and that everything
was all satisfactory. Ho was asked as
to the amount, and replied (121,000, He
was then asked If any arrangement bad
been made wltb the bank for tho pay
ment of 8 per oent Interest that the
county was paying on the warrants un
redeemed because of tho money in the
bank, and he said that question had
not been raised. Then the committee
ventured tbo remark that the people
bad already raised the question.
When asked as to the amount or
moneys due to the state, and as to the
amount of moneys on band, he submit
ted a letter from SUte Treasurer Meta-
chan, bearing date March 21, 1BV3,
making an urgent appeal to our county
treasurer to forward moneys due, Insist
log that It should be forthcoming as the
titate was paying 8 per cent Interest on

moneys should be applied to tbeir can

"The sheriff Btated that ho could not

the remainder being In two of the local
banks. There Is no reoord of the col
leutlou of a road poll tax, and tho report

"From this it will be seen that be has

rar neglected and refused to make the

your committee proceeded to lay the

tho district attorney was at Salem, and
we laid tho matter before each of his

whom positively refused to Issuo tho
warrauts, as did also Justice McDeyltt.
Your committee thon awnlled the re-
turu of the district attorney, and upon
his arrival called upon that (flluial.
Upon learning our mission ho declined
and refused to Issue tho warrants out or
the Justice court, claiming that tbo Jus
tices are clossly associated wlpi the
county ofllclals and largely dependent
upon them for business, bo would not
expect a conviction In such cases, aud
the stigma or an acquittal would attach
to him for failure to convict.
"While waiting for an audlen"o with
the oounty court your committee had
the pleasure or hearing Hon. D. P.
Thompson, as school director, ask tt
tho county oourt why there was such
an unfair and uujust distribution or tho
funds that had been collected. He pre
sented figures showing that there
should have boen paid over to the
school fund (80,420.42, when In fact
(02,001 00 of that amount had beon paid
over to the road aud general funds.
Mr. Thompson further staUd that bad
