President and gentlemen As this is the first time i have attended a dinner Given by a new England society i beg to express the gratification it affords me to enter upon my new experience in the City of Brooklyn and among to to a whom i have always regarded As especially my friends. You Are by no Means to suppose that my failure heretofore to be present on occasions like this is accounted for by any doubt that i have bad As to my qualification for admission. Prom the time the first immigrant of my name landed in Massachusetts Down to the Day of my Advent All the Cleveland trom whom i claim descent were born in new England. The fact that i first saw the Light in the state of new Jersey i have never regarded As working a forfeiture of any right i May have have derived from my new England lineage nor As making me an intruder or merely tolerated guest in an assemblage of this kind. I resent of course with becoming spirit the imputation that my birth in new Jersey constitutes me a foreigner and an alien and i have never been Able to see any humor in the suggestion that my native state is not within the Union. To my mind the regularity with which she votes the democratic ticket entitles her to a h go rank among the states that Are really useful. At any rate i shall always insist that new Jersey is a Good state to be born in. And i Point to the fact that after an absence of More than 60 years i have returned to find a temporary Home within her limits As fully demonstrating that my very Early love for her is not extinguished. Assuming that you agree with me that my birth in new Jersey has not stamped me with indelible ineligibility and anticipating your demand for affirmative support of my qualification to mingle with those who celebrate forefathers Day and sing the praises of the men who first settled in new England i can do no better than to rest Ray Case upon Tho statement that bean Hill in the town of Norwich and state of Connecticut was the Birthplace of my father. I nope that in making this statement i shall not remind you of the Man who loudly boasted of his patriotic sacrifice in defence of his country on the ground that he bad permitted his wife a relatives to join the army. Any rate it seems to me that the claim i make is entirely valid with no embarrassment connected with it. Except the admission by inference that for some purposes and on some occasions a fathers Birthplace May be of More value to a Man Thun Lis own. I have nothing further to urge on the subject of my eligibility except to mention As something which should be credited to me upon my own account the fact that i Hare i Angly demonstrated my preference for new England and my love for that Section of our country where my ancestors lived and died. By establishing a summer Home in the state of Massachusetts. I think All of us Are old enough to remember the prophetic words put opposite certain dates in the old almanacs. A about these Days look out for ii almanacs were now made up As they used to be. It would not be amiss to set opposite the latter Days of december Quot about these Days look out for glorification of the this would be notice to those consulting the almanac that a time was foretold when the people of the country would be reminded that there were pilgrims who came to new England Aud there set in motion the forces which created our wondrous natron. No one will deny that the pilgrims to new England were Well worthy of All that is done or can be done to keep them in remembrance. But we cannot recall their history and what they did Aud established and what they taught without also recalling that there have been pilgrims from new England who. Finding their Way to every part of the land have taken with them those habits opinions and sentiments which having an Early origin in american soil should be Hest suited to american life everywhere and should he the Best guarantees in every situation of the preservation in their integrity and purity of american institutions. But these pilgrims and their descendants and All those who with sincere enthusiasm celebrate forefathers Day will fail in the discharge of their highest duty if yielding to the temptation of any in american tendency they neglect to teach persistently that in the Early Days there was and that there still ought to be such a thing As True and distinctive americanism or if they neglect to give it just interpretation. This certainly does not mean that a spirit of narrowness or proscription should be encouraged. Nor that there should be created or kept alive a fear concerning such additions to our population from other lands As Promise assimilation with our conditions and co operation in our Aims and purposes. It does however mean the insistence that every Transfer of allegiance from another government to our own. Should signify the taking on at the same time of an aggressive and affirmative Devotion to the spirit of american institutions. It no ans that with us. A love of our government for its own Sake an i for what it is. Is an. Essential Factor of citizenship and that i is Only mane full and Complete by the adaption of the ideas Aud habits of thought which underlie our plan of popular Rule. It Means that one fills a place in our citizenship Unworthily who regards it solely As Vantage ground where he May fill his purse and better his condition. It Means that our government is not suited to a elfish sordid people and that in their hands it is not Safe. The truth about american tin Bate. New York dec. 22.�?the tin plate Consumers association gave out the following today Quot our position is not one of antagonism to the establishment of the tin plate Industry in America. Quot representing among our members both political parties we claim for ourselves As Large a share of patriotism Aud desire for the material Ana Industrial Prosperity of our country As those who from ignorance or for political ends Are claiming that the increased Mckinley duty on tin plates has resulted in the establishment of a new Industry which has been accomplished without harm to the various industries in which we Are individually engaged. Quot our position enables us to be the Best judges on this subject As the article which is a raw material to us is the subject of the sex pertinent that is being made. Since the Mckinley Bill was passed we have had to pay Over $10,000,000 More for the tin plate we used in our factories and workshops and the present duty will add every year Oyer $16,000,000 to the loss of our raw material. Quot it is a matter of business and not of poli pics that up to the present moment not one Heet of Coke tin which constitutes Over half of our entire requirements has yet been put upon the Market by the american manufacturers and that the present output of All kinds does not constitute one per cent. Of the entire consumption of tin plate in saved by a old the oldest gunner in the United states Navy. The venerable George Sirian. Died in Portsmouth va., wednesday. His life was full of Romance and adventures. Born in 1817 on the greek Isle of i Saiia he was made a homeless orphan by the attack and massacre by the turks of the inhabitants of that Island in 1820. The bombardment of Tho turks by the old Constitution Quot old Ironsides a saved the lives of a Large number and to was among la boys who survived Nijiu were brought away by that Gallant old Vest it a. He was brought Home by Lieut. Randolph of Richmond the executive officer of the ship. Later he was taken by or. Marshall gunner in the United states Navy. From Lieut. Randolph and by ii in taught gunnery and pyrotechnics. At the ago of 20 he entered Tho Navy As a state cattle official carry out their threat of shutting out Massachusetts animals from their territory. Portland me., dec. 23.�?the action of the Maine Boford of cattle commissioners today Iii forbidding Tho importation of cattle into this state from Massachusetts will be officially ratified on thursday by the promulgation of a formal quarantine against Massachusetts rattle. The reason for this action was today explained by or. George h. Bailey of the Board the state veterinarian. Or. Bailey said that of late a number of carloads of cheap cattle had been imparted into the state from Massachusetts one Carload of 23 being recently brought from Brighton to Lisbon by Fred a and William Crowley Quot i was called to see Tho Herd and ordered two of the cows killed. They were badly affected with tuberculosis. Twelve of the Brid had been killed Tor food. The beef was what is known As a chopped beet a that is not out in by quarters but chopped up into Junks to Render it impossible to detect any Trace of the disease. Quot All Day monday or. Daggett and myself spent in Hunting up the rest of the nerd still alive Aud we killed several More and in each Case found the cows badly diseased. The rest of the animals Are suspected Aud will be carefully kept track of. Out of another lot of seven cows we killed four and of Mother lot we killed the whole. Quot As Maine some to years ago awoke to the realization of the danger to humanity from tilts dread disease and its spread and propagation among the human race by Means of tainted milk and beef so she has actively tried Ever since to stamp it out. And has practically accomplished it in this state. Quot Massachusetts however does not attempt to stamp out the disease and does not pay out a single Dollar to accomplish so desirable an cud. Quot we should have had a quarantine against Massachusetts Long ago had we suspected that so heavy importations were being made for the condition of affairs in that state is simply shocking As the cases cited above show. The state is fairly honeycombed with diseased the Power of toe commissioners in forbidding importation into Maine is absolute. Provision is also made for the appraisal and payment by the state to the owners for cattle killed. Soc. 7 provides that no person shall receive for transportation or transport from one part of Tho state to another or bring from any other state or foreign country any animals affected with any such diseases especially tuberculosis knowing such Ani trials to be affected or to have Bern exposed appropriate penalties being provided for violation of the act. Thus All business in Massachusetts cattle is stringently forbidden and made a crime. The importation of a single cow no matter what Tho Breed from Massachusetts is absolutely forbidden. No terror manifested. Dealers and breeders not troubled by the edict. The edict of the Maine cattle commissioners establishing a quarantine against cattle imported from Massachusetts does not strike terror to the hearts of either officials or breeders Here. In the first place or. Bailey of the Maine Hoard has several times recently promulgated threats of the exclusion of Massachusetts horses on account of alleged prevalence of glanders and of cattle on account of tuberculosis they were represented As having. In the second place Maine a a importation of cattle from tins state is hardly of sufficient proportion to trouble dealers much. I his action by the Maine authorities whether necessitated or not by the impure cattle she was receiving illustrates How me Grely this state is guarded from the ravages and prevalence of tuberculosis. Its the Only dangerous contagious and infectious disease among cattle and horses that has not been the object of stringent provisions of the Law. There is at present no existing statute or official authority for the killing of cattle until meted with tuberculosis or prohibition of the Sale or Transfer of the same. This year the legislature appropriated $2500 for the Board of agriculture to make an investigation of the extent and the dangers arising from tuberculosis in cattle. The chief clerk of the state Board of agriculture presented All phases of the matter Sain Quot concerning this action of the Maine authorities i will say that it affects us but Little. We done to take much notice of it As every Little while something of Tho sort appears in t to papers. Quot i do not believe that Maine imports Over too head of Massachusetts bred cattle for food purposes in our year. It is possible that much of our cattle sent irom Here to Maine by our dealers May have been afflicted with tuberculosis contracted elsewhere. Under these circumstances the presence of the disease would not be attributable to our state. A there is a Good Deal of tuberculosis All Over new England. So is consumption Aud there is undoubtedly More of it Liere than in any other part of the United states. Quot Maine has had a Good Deal of it Ami has had considerable trouble with it. I know of one Case where a whole Herd was afflicted arid had to be killed and the stables disinfected. I done to know but that they bad to Burn the stables to to positive of its extirpation. Quot there my be lots of such affected animals imported or exported from this state. We done to know and could not prevent it if we did. Quot in Tho first place it is a disease very hard Quot it detect in its first stages boing in Sidio in nature and is often of several years duration before evidence of its existence appears. Quot when one cow is affected an entire Herd occupying the same stable May be stricken. Transmission May be by proximity to the afflicted and also by heredity. Quot it May also be to human beings through the use of milk or beef from an animal having tuberculosis and is contagious in Man As Well As in animals. Quot we done to know How much of it exists in Massachusetts Only it is prevalent All Over the state. Quot in the Western counties it is decidedly less than in the Eastern part of the state. There is More in Ana near the Large cities. Western and Texas cattle rarely have it. And it is More common where the cattle do not have much outdoor existence. Quot we find it More prevalent in Fine Stock than anywhere else and that is quite natural. Quot take Jersey cows for instance. They came from the Island of Jersey where there is an even climate and Are naturally delicate and easily susceptible to the Chang g and rigorous climate of new England. They Areline butter cows and Are always forced. Quot being Good Stock they Are kept in warm and generally poorly ventilated stables and thus easily contract tuberculosis. W whereas an animal Given plenty of Freedom and kept in a poor and draughty stable is not so liable to the disease. Quot if a Farmer has a tuberculous cow he can keep Lier. And no authority can deter him from disposing of the milk or killing Lier and Selling the meat. Unlike cases of glanders sri horses a neighbor cannot complain and have the animal killed. Quot no Man can be arrested or complained of for Selling a Polk from a cow having tuberculosis. Quot the state Board of cattle commissioners was created for Tho extirpation of pleuropneumonia. Cholera ii hogs Texas fever and glanders in horses. There is no Texas lever in this state not. And Pleura pneumonia has been exterminated from United states. Quot they have issued circular calling attention to tuberculosis and advising prompt action Iii killing the suspected animals or causing their separation from the remainder of the Herd. Quot the Board of agriculture will prepare a report to the next general court upon the danger of tuberculosis but will not spend the $2500 on it. It will be mainly recommendations. I think legislation in the matter will undoubtedly be passed. Quot i think it w Ould be advisable to give the cattle commissioner similar Power As Iii other contagious diseases among animals. Quot let there be a Board of Appeal to determine upon the presence of tuberculosis Iii Che animals and condemn them if they think the cows Are affected. Quot of after the cow is killed the disease is detected the owner should receive nothing As the animal is of no use to him. Of upon examination no indications of tuberculosis ale discovered then the owner should be reimbursed for the condemned to Washington in Nick of time. Toned Down the jingoistic tendencies of Harrison. Reciprocity was at stake a Maine statesman in new lie it. New York. Dec. 27.�?mr. Blaine has Given no greater Assurance of How important he regards his programme of reciprocity than his acceptance of the Hospital ties of Tho chilian minister. It is a Story full of interest exceedingly Well vouched for and it presents the Maine statesman in the new Light of exercising a Pacific and conservative influence when his colleagues in office with the president at their head have been burning for a display of jingoism. The relations with Chili became strained just before or. Blaines return Here in the latter part of october. The president who had manifested some fondness for managing the foreign relations of die government during or. Blaines absence and illness took the matter in hand and called Sucre tary Tracy to his Side. Both of them favored a Resolute and even ail aggressive policy and it wits Tho presi Dent himself who framed the instructions that were Smit to minister Egan. Talk of War was heard on every hand. The president it is asserted would have immediate explanation and reparation or lie would know the reason Why. It was even predicted that Congress would to called together in extra session and a special communication made to it looking to the beginning of hostilities against Chili. The influences surrounding the Secretary of the Navy were All belligerent. The officers in command of the new ships were especially eager for a a a go with the Little Republic and much of Secretary Tracy a information about the situation was coming to him through these impatient sources. With the president therefore and his principal adviser both under War influences matters looked grave enough. In the very Nick of time or. Blaine returned to Washington. It was apparent that something Liko a crisis was approaching in the affair with Chili. Or. Blaine s into a mate friends followed their congratulations on his restoration to health with suggestions that took this form Quot you must get this chilian matter entirely into your own hands and keep it there. The business is not such As ought to he decided by the influences of Small politicians and game some sea captains. Quot the president would probably reap some Reward from a patriotic demonstration made in the name of the Flag and the Navy would of course be delighted at an Opportunity to show its Mettle. But what meanwhile would become of the policy and the do ire to extend a Commerce among the countries of South America Quot what inevitably would he the effect at this time upon that policy of a bloody War waged by tile United states on the leading of South America Why. Not Only would increased Trade with chill become impossible hut the reciprocity projects with All South american countries would be made the More difficult. Quot it even might become impossible to maintain the conventions already entered into in that Quarter. England would improve the Opportunity to the utmost. The United states would Fie stigmatized As a big bully anxious always for strife and therefore to be avoided by those countries seeking pleasant Ana profitable commercial these views As might be supposed proved to be the views of or. Blaine. He had been quicker than his followers to see the dangerous Drift of matters As regarded his project of reciprocity and he was no sooner in charge again of the state department than lie get about getting control of the situation. There was at once a change not Only of policy but of advisers in the premises. The Small politicians and the sea East ans took Back seats and men of business and diplomacy were summoned in their Stead. Col. J. W. Foster whose knowledge of Spanish Ani Jirian countries is thorough and w. R. Grace and Charles r. Flint whose business connections extend All Over Spanish America were called upon for opinions and for Good offices and they responded readily to the Secretary a invitation. The effect on the new chilian minister Senor Montt was at once perceptible. He bad arrived in the country As a representative of the congressional party and had been feeling his w a very cautiously. His command of English was too limited to enable Bim to do More than to act through others and he had Only a Small Choice of agents. He found himself recognized by and associated with a Diplomat like col. Foster who Speaks Spanish fluently. Senor Montt responded with zest he had now become by reason of Balmaceda s downfall the representative of the controlling Power in Chili Aud being received by or. Blaine soon discovered that the intentions of the United states towards Chili while firm and thoroughly charged with self respect were by no Means menacing or unreasonable this ensured the proper representation of Tim situation to the authorities in Chili and since then there has grown up a belter understanding Between the two countries. All danger of course will not be passed until the formal reply of Chili to the demands of this government has been made and accepted. The present Good feeling therefore is based in some measure upon Hope. But the hone of a satisfactory settlement is Strong by the fact that the new president of Chili is a near Kinsman of minister Montt and Likely to be influenced by the ministers views about the matter that minister Montt is controlled by Pacific Aud Friendly feelings towards this government and that or. Blaine knows that the very poorest Way to Hunt increased Trade is with spotted guns and War ships and that he will not invoke those agencies against Chili if it can be avoided with Honor. This change in or. Blaines temperament is tie subject of much comment Here in political circles. It is accepted As an tiler proof of the fact that the Secretary is taking not Only All present political advantages but All permanent political Power on the commercial of the 20th.Gen. William Raymond Lee the distinguished Soldier of this state dead at his Home in Roxbury. . William Raymond Lee. Organizer and first commander of the 20th Massachusetts volunteers in the War of the rebellion. Is dead at the ago of 85 Yoars at his Home in Roxbury. Brevet . William Raymond Lee of Roxbury was a student of the military Academy at West Point of the class of which Jefferson Davis was a member. He. However left his military studies to become a civil Engineer and was later superintendent of the Boston amp Providence Railroad. When the rebellion broke out his patriotism led him to tender his services to gov. Andrew in connection with the raising Ana sending Forth of volunteers though he was then 54 years of age. Assisted by an Able corps of younger men. He raised the 20th Massachusetts infantry volunteers of which he was commissioned colonel july i idol. Taking his command to Washington As soon As it was organized he was assigned to duty pm the Potomac near Footville and. With Tho larger part of his regiment shared in the disastrous Battle of bails Bluff oct. 21, 1801, u Here he was made a prisoner of while in Captivity at Richmond he was selected with others to be held As a hostage for the lives of Confederate privateers in the hands of the National government Aud during this time he was quartered in tile common county prison at Richmond with his unfortunate fellow hostages. Being exc aged the following Spring he rejoined his command before Yorktown leading it gallantly at the Battle of fair Oaks. At the Battle of Glendale he was in command of three regiments of his brigade and while holding an advanced position he received severe injuries by having a horse fall upon him. Returning to Massachusetts to recover from his Accident he was during the Early Bart. Of August in command of Cann figs at Pittsfield where the 37th regiment was beginning to gather but he was again in the Field at the head of his regiment in time for the int let. Am Campaign and commanded the 2 it than it s unfortunate experience during Tho Battle of sept. I ig.,2. It soon became evident that col. Leo was physically incapable of enduring the exposures of Active campaigning after the hardships through which he had already passed and on dec. 17, 1802, after another period of absence from ibis regiment a reluctantly Resi nod his commission and was not again actively engaged in military duties. With Many others he received the Brevet of brigadier general of volunteers dating from the lath of March. 1806. He served on the staff of gov. Andrew As chief Engineer with the rank of and people believe that the former have established a crusade against the latter in that state. City or Mexico via Galveston. Dec. 24. A Fuller details As to the arrest and imprisonment of monks in Pueblo show that popular expression ran High and the clerical party a newspapers Are still denouncing the seizure of the monks and Heclo Sincof their convents As prompted by Tho from masons. His believed by the people that Tho free masons have prepared for a grand crusade against secretly maintained contents All Over the country but Tim real cause of Tho trouble is that the clergy have begun to violate the Laws of Reform openly Aud the government has been compelled to take Strong in ensures. The troops concerned in the arrest in Pueblo were the Rural guards Ana a Force of municipal gendarmes. The monks of Tho san Francisco Convent got news of the coming of Tho troops and had time to make Good their escape. The san Augustin monks were taken away in coaches guarded by cavalry but. The people who crowded around made an Effort to Rescue them. At Al Carmen there was Quito another spectacle for Tho cavalry took the monks but Tho arms and led them away. While Tho people shouted and defied the troops. Finally after volleys of stones had been hurled at the soldiers the latter opened fire Aud a combat ensued Iii which two soldiers and three of die monks were killed and several wounded. Meantime the District judge had gone on to Cholula a City famous As the site of a Groat Pyramid and which is full of churches and convents of Antiquity. The people of Cholula received the judge and troops with jeers and taunts but a priest succeeded in allaying the passions of Tho mob Ana rim monks were transferred to Pueblo in a Wagon. It is charged that Tho soldiers in Tho Church of san Augustin at Pueblo inverted Tho crosses in Tho Church took off Tho garments worn by the figures of the saints Aud set Tho images on rim floor tearing the altar cloths and doing other damages. The officials say that in no Case did the soldiers approach the . Russell of Massachusetts addresses the Young Many a club of Boston after the annual dinner. Tim annual dinner of Tho Young menus democratic club was Bola in Boston on monday last president Harvey n. Collison in the chair. Tho meeting was largely a Jollif cation Over Tho result of the state election. And gov. Russell a the chief guest of the occasion. He was fittingly introduced by Tho president after dinner and received with much enthusiasm. To said gov. William e. Russell was received with prolonged and enthusiastic cheering. Ile said my. Preside r and gentlemen a i gratefully appreciate your very cordial Welcome and thank you heartily for it. I always feel at Home with this club first because of the Strong Bond of political sympathy Between us in our Earnest belief in Tho principles of the party which we All love and Honor and next because of Tho still stronger Bond that comes from having together fought for these principles and stood shoulder to shoulder in defeat and in Victory. Yet tonight i feel a Little embarrassed because i am Between Campaign speeches which i cannot now repeat and an inaugural address which i cannot now deliver laughter. Between a Campaign that is Over and a new administration which has not yet begun. As i have sat at this table i have been thinking of the Early history of this club of the Day nearly four years ago when it was founded by 12 enthusiastic Young Doino crafts. I know the sentiments Aud the purpose which moved them. It was an Earnest belief in the democratic party in the principles it advocated the policy it had inaugurated and especially in the Brave Able and patriotic administration it was then giving to Tho nation. Applause Tymy had too an Earnest wish that the party should stand firm to those principles emphatically declare them Aud aggressively Light for them. This club was founded that Young men of a common political Faith who did not dwell in Tho past but Iii the present and tile future who believed that our party had work to do and a Amnion to perform and should be governed by ideas and not by expedients might Rome together and exert an organized influence in this direction. It has always carried out its original purpose. It never has failed to be True to its principles and to declare its position positively upon them. It never has been led away by passing fallacies because they seemed to be popular nor from a True democratic principle because it might for a time be unsuccessful. And what has been the result it has met with unqualified Success not Only in its great and growing membership hut in the Public Confidence it has won and merited and in the great political influence it has honorable exerted until at last largely through Tho efforts of this club Massachusetts has Given two successive victories to our party and planted herself in the democratic column there to remain so Long As the principles the measures and the policy which this club Lias advocated Arete to triumphant in its Victory. Great applause but tonight we Are thinking not so much of Tho past As of Tho future and of the great Battle that is now before us. As today we re elected our efficient faithful president and surrounded him with Able officers and have greatly recruited our ranks i believe the thought which has been uppermost in every mind was that this club was girding up his loins to he Strong for that Battle in which it Means to dots full duty. Applause our club never lingers Long Over the past either to mourn Over a defeat or to exult Over a Victory hut is always preparing for the work which is ahead of it. Yet out of that past one lesson certainly can to Learned and that is that tile democratic party need have no fear of Resolute leadership and of a tight for principle. I believe its Only danger is if it forgets that lesson. It was such leadership that in 1884 restored our party to Power in the nation. Applause it was such leaders hip which. In 1888, even in defeat Laid the foundation 1 for the great victories which have since i carried democracy triumphant throughout the nation. For one. With hone and with Confidence i look Forward to the privilege of enrolling myself Andor the same leadership in 185 2, and in joining with this club in another fight for Tariff Reform. Prolonged cheering hit is then successful it must become i the established policy of our country. Let us have for our platform the principle \ for which a United democracy has fought i through defeat to a great and deserved i Victory and in which after mature consideration the noon of the country have expressed the a full and entire Confidence. Let us have for our Leader one who in i himself represents this principle and in i whom the people have equal Confidence. I so will democracy win in a Aff. And in its1 victorious column will he found i believe Massachusetts Aud a majority of the new 1 England states. Or. President. I cannot finish without sex i pressing my personal indebtedness to this club for the part it has taken in the victories which democracy a won in Massachusetts. I thank it for its Loyal support to our party its principles and its candidates for the valuable Aid it Aas rendered in every Campaign arid when the Battle was won. For the encouraged it and support it has kindly Given to me As i entered upon Tho responsible duties of my High office. Great applause Walt Whitman was still alive on sunday in spite of the act that he was Given up to die on thursday House committees. Full list of speaker crisps precedents disregarded and Northern sentiment respected. New England members fairly treated to Bis plums. Washington Doc. 23. The assignment it members of Congress on the committees whether made by a Republican or a Deino erotic speaker a Carlisle who followed precedent and Cli i what was expected of him or a Crisp who violated pretty nearly every precedent Aud blazed out a path for i himself is always bound to cause More or Leas dissatisfaction with Over Joo men to. Place. I some Aro bound to receive less than they i consider themselves entitled to or to be placed on committees for which they have no special preference. Whatever Little soreness or discontent May now be Felt will All have blown Over by the time the House meets next month Aud Tho democratic majority will thou to standing solidly shoulder to shoulder ready to redeem their promises and carry out the business for which they were sent to Washington. In the general distribution new England As a whole did very Well. With tile exc ration of the judiciary committee there is not an important committee of the House w without a new England Man. So that new England will have considerable voice in shaping the legislation of Tho session. The committees having a new England representation Aro ways and Means appropriation Hanking and currency coinage weights and measures Commerce Rivers and harbours merchant Marine and fisheries foreign affairs military affairs naval affairs Post officers and Post roads railways Aud canals manufactures Public buildings and grounds. Lad Fie railroads labor patents invalid pensions claim., District of Columbia expenditures Iii the War department expenditures in Tho Navy department expenditures in the Interior department expenditures in the department of Justice Reform in the civil ervice election of president and vice president census alcoholic liquor traffic irrigation of arid lands and columbian exposition. It will be seen from this list that new England gets three chairmanships Reform in Tho civil service Andrew census. Willcox. Connecticut and manufactures Page Rhode Island. His interesting to note the geographical distribution made of chairmanships. Of the of chairmanships 24 go to Northern states and 31 to Southern including in the latter the states of Maryland Kentucky and Missouri. These states however did not secede in the late War. They have Between them nine chairmanships. Adding these to Tho Northern or Loyal states during the War and deducting them from Tho Southern states the North gets 33 chairmanships and Tho South 22. Then it Ruthern committees however far outrank the Southern Iii importance although the members from the South Are nearly All men of Long service while a majority of the northerners Are serving their first term in Congress. This geographical distribution was made with a purpose. A member of Congress who is very close to the speaker and who enjoys his Confidence to the utmost explained Tho plan on which Tho speaker worked in making up his committees and Why or. Crisp found it so necessary to absolutely disregard precedents. Quot judge to said Quot wished to avoid All risk of giving the Republican papers and Campaign orators of Hie Norilia a Chaco to say that the a con Fedora a brigadier were again in the Saddle a and co claim that the South was Aga n legislating for the country. The fact that or. Milfs was a Southern Man was used by Republican stump speakers ail during the last. Campaign Ami Many men who know Little or nothing of Tho merits of Tho Mills Bill were prejudiced against it because its author was a Southern Man. The representative of a state having but Little capital invested in manufactures. Quot for this reason or. Crisp concluded that it would be the Wisest policy on his part to put at the head of the committee on ways and Means a Northern Man a Man whose affiliation and sentiments Are and always have Bien Northern and who represents one of the greatest manufacturing states in the i Ilion. By placing such a Man there he effectually silences some of the clamor of the opposition and no Northern Man eau then charge that the Tariff Bill framed by that committee is sectional or that it is framed in the interests of Tho South at the expense of the North. Quot tile same reason led to the appointment of or. Holman As chairman of Tho committee on appropriations. Or. Holman is a Northern Man.

Springer of Illinois who was yesterday an i pointed chairman of the ways and mean committee will for the next two years occupy a prominent part in the legislation of the House and therefore of the demo i Era tic party. J he a been in Congress for id Eon spec i Tivo years and is now beginning his ninth i term. J luring All these years he Hal it eau storing capital in his Bank of experience. He will have occasion to draw upon his store in Loro he retires from his present to i Sitmon. I personal characteristic Aro wort i a i study. In some respects he is unique. His temperament i a to to mercurial this is hardly a lit Synon Vine for Mercury sometimes goes Down. Or. Springer spirits i never do. To is always hopeful always i buoyant. This element of persistency of unshakable . Seems to have been a part of or. Springer s character Ever since Iii boyhood which began in Indiana 55 years ago. The congressional life of the new chairman of the Way and Means committee has been full of eventful periods. From the Day when he made the third term of Grant impossible by suddenly proposing a Resolution in Tim House in which Congress placed itself squarely against a third term and which was adopted by a vote of 232 to 18, to the present moment he had a personality that has made him one of the most conspicuous members. It was his investigation of tile Venezuela claims that exposed Hie bribe which Orth of Indiana had received and compelled the Republican state committee of ind Una to withdraw Orth name from Tho head of the gubernatorial ticket where it had been placed. Ile v a appointed at the personal request of Samuel. Tilden on the committee to report on the election of 187d, and voted for the Resolution to question Hayes title to tile president y by a writ of quo warranty in the supreme court of the l cited states. As chair Iii of the committee on territories lie Mil instrumental in securing the admittance of four new states. Vav till ins Fertility in resource however lie did not always need a prominent committee to make himself Felt in legislation. After he voted for Cox in the speaker ship contest which resulted in the election of a Isle the latter placed him at the head of the usually unimportant committee on expenditures in Tho department of Justice. Be i Ore Coni mss had adjourned the committee had investigated the Star nude frauds and states marshal Wrights connection with the Cincinnati elections. It had he nine Quot Tho Springer Anil three Large volumes of testimony Tell of the work that w As accomplished. Nor would any reference to or. Springer # congressional life lie Complete with out a mention of Tho Stormy time during heifers speaker ship when his protest against one of Keifer s rulings led to such excitement that the sergeant at arms was summoned to quell the disturbance. Scenes of equal turbulence wherein or. Springer a a Central figure Are still fresh memories of the Congress Over Winch or. Reed presided. Mcmillin a floor Lender. Or. Mills has not yet signified whether he will accept the chairmanship of Tho committee on Commerce although it is believed he will and his friends have advised him to do so. While lie is better than lie has been lie is still very weak and unable to leave his room the change made in having til committee on rules Compo de of others than chairmen of Trio committees of was Aud Means and appropriation is now fully understood. Or. Mcmillin is to he Tho actual floor Leader Aud or. He Ranger is to be the Leader of the House Only when Tariff matters Are up for discussion. In All other matters Mcmillin is to be the recognized Captain of the it Emo ratio Side. A erroneous As a rain make prof. Blake has some orig Nal ideas. Late Secretary win Dom a estimate a singularly Washington Dee. 24. The attention of the Treasury department was recently called by a correspondent to an editorial statement first appearing in the St. Louis Globe Democrat to Tho effect that in his annual estimate of receipts and expenditures of Tim fiscal year which ended june 30, i Soi the late Secretary Vii Dom overestimated Tho receipt of Revenue by $62,-000,000 and underestimated the disbursements by $07,000,000. Tile facts As they Are shown by Tho books of tile Treasury department Are Given in Tho following letter from Secretary Nettleton tin the cos Chi Der Artmont i n m e of the Nicki.

A sri in reply to your communication of the 24 inst., you Are informed that the published statement to which you eau attention is entirely erroneous and without .

L i Blake professor of physic and electrical engineering in the Kansas state University believe that dust makes rain and when he recently Advance that theory be attracted considerable attention to himself. Prof. Blake is a native of Taunton mass., and is Only 3� years of age. Lie graduated from Amherst mass., in 1877, and spent four year of study in Germany taking the degree of pm. D. At the Royal University of Berlin in 1883. After returning to this country to was in charge of Tho electrical engineering department at Rose Poi technic Institute Terre haute ind. For several year since then to has been at the University of Kansas. So far prof Blakes theory As to the Arri ii Cid production of rain is a theory Only As no Experiment have been mad outside the College Law oratory and these wore very meagre and Small in their scone. Lie firs gave i theory publicity a few weeks ago when he made it the subject of a lecture to his classes. One of the students appreciated it novel character and he wrote it out for a local newspaper. Tile press of Bio state then took it up and in a no Gal professional Way commented on it. Until consider Hie interest had been aroused when some wealthy landowners stepped Forward and offered to hear the expense of a practical test of Tho idea. This will he made. Prof. Pinko is in no sense a Quot professional he is simply a scientific investigator whose results if successful the country Nav have the Benefit of. Ile was asked Bis opinion of 4ii. Ii. i Enfort lib a experiments in Texas and said Quot Coti cushions cannot cause rain to fall. Every scientist knows this. Quot an explosion in the air is immediate in its effects. It becomes merely the propagation of a sound wave which travelling at ail immense velocity has but an instantaneous Anion upon the air through Wutoh it passes and in Winch it gradually Frittzi away into heat. The temperature and density of tile air return in less than a second Quot consequently if Gen. Daren Forth a heavy explosions caused a fall of rain it should have poured Down almost instantaneously. Which it did not do As the rain Cam ? hour after the explosion. Quot another evidence Given of the Couch. Simi theory is that Rains frequently follow the heavy Cann Nading in Battles and the Menlo Ion of Tho fourth of july. But these Rains do not come for hours afterwards sometimes not until the next Day. A then there is the thunderstorm. The fact that a lightning Flash and its Thunder Are usually followed by a sudden increase in the downpour of rain has been frequently attribute to the discharge of electricity in the Clouds. But you notice that this increase mid Tim Flash occur almost simultaneously. Quot so the drops of rain must have started from Tho Clouds previous to the Flash in order to reach the ground at so nearly the same to Roo. The same evidence precludes the Thunder As Well As the lightning As tile cause. It seem to me that All the proof is aga1 list Tho sound prof. Blake says he admits the effect of Gen. Daren Forter balloon experiments in the Eann Nading Iii Battle and on the fourth of buy and in Tho thunderstorm hut Denio the cause. He a asked to what cause then he ascribed Hie consequent rainfall. Ile replied Quot to the products of Tho explosive. In Gen. Daren Forth a Experiment minute solid particles of Silica and Carbin were liberated by the explosions of the dynamite and rack Arock. Quot my theory is that this Tine dust entering into the upper air layer serves As nuclei about which Tho moisture gradually condenses and finally forms rain drops. Quot the rain could not fall until this had taken place. Very Small particles of dust May form the nuclei of raindrops and the sudden presence of Tine powder in the upper strata of air will Load to condensation if sufficient moisture be present. This is prove by the Well known fact that Hail Stone i. Which Are product of vapor condensation often Showa nucleus of a particle of dust and in volcanic regions of a granule of ashes. Tho Centre of condensation in these Case was a Llinat particle. Quot in recently making some Laboratory experiments with an air pump to determine any relative difference in the properties of different dusts As regards their Power for condensation i corroborated the conclusion made year ago by John Ait Ken that if the air in Tho receiver be first filtered through Cotton Wool so As to be free from dust no condensation will take place. Quot there must be some solid nucleus As dust present. I found further that with different polders introduced the amount of apparent condensation varied. Carbon. Silica Sulphur and common Salt Are Partick Early capable of precipitating the moisture while the burning of Sulphur or Gunpowder gives heavy visible Clouds of vapor. Quot of course the experiments i have made in the Laboratory Are Only suggestive of what May take place Iii nature. Yet it seems a legitimate conclusion that the finest dust introduced artificially into the higher regions of the atmosphere will furnish Centre for condensation Aud by gradual agglomeration of moisture induce rainfall. Quot yet under every atmospheric condition rainfall could not be expected for there must lie sufficient water vapor in the Atmos pliers above to gradually collect upon the prof. Blake thus tells How he would go to work to demonstrate his theory Quot i would suggest the use of the comparatively cheap fire balloons doing away with the expensive and cumbersome apparatus used by Gem Dyrenforth. Quot by sending up several of these a mile or so Aport there could to carried into the upper air a Quantity of impalpable powders which co lube scattered by any feasible moans. Quot tile burning of Sulphur or of Gunpowder by Means of fuses tuned for the proper height of Tho balloons might also be tried. If this dust theory be True the amount of powder borne aloft and exploded from the balloons need not be beyond the limits of practicable experimenting and if successful. Artificial Rains could be produced at a Cost which Gen. Dyreng orters explosive bombardments cannot rain by the acre. To Robert Moore bought a revolver and then and Thoro shot himself. Cincinnati dec. 2c.�?at 8.30 this Forenoon a handsome Young mom entered bodes hardware store on Aiken St. And purchased a revolver. He requested the clerk to Load it. Which was done. And it was returned to tile purchaser. The visitor then placed the weapon to Lis right Temple Aud pulled the trigger falling dead at tile feet of the clerk. The suicide was identified As Robert Moore a son of a wealthy contractor of far mount. No cause has been assigned for the rash act prof. Hazen say that Farmer May be duped. Washington. D. A. Dec 2.�?prof. Hazen of the weather Bureau has expressed doubt As to Tho Success of the dynamite rain theory. He says Mere is no doubt that great concussion produces rain and this theory he Lias traced to Plutarch who lived Long before the introduction of Gunpowder. In Hie War of the rebellion it has been shown that Only about 7 per cent. Of the Battles were followed by rain Aud it is not at All incredible that there should have be eau natural rain in these cases. There is a widespread belief prof. Hazen says that rain is much More liable on the fourth of july than on die Day before or after. But it is probable he thinks that the occurrence on this Day impresses itself on Peoples minds much More than on Oiler Days. It can be Laid Down As a positive Rule says 1�?~roi. Hazen that no rain whatever can be obtained from dry air. The trials in Texas have started a Large number of other so called rainmakers it is reported that already a contract has been entered into in Kansas by the terms of which rain is to be produced at the rate of to cont per Aero. It is pro Oabie that the rainmaker in this ease watches the reports of rain at other place carefully and gets his credit trom natural rain.
