republican ff district judge, will speak in JTi'fr tonight. The office of dis-icf. ji; lire is ao important one and ev- should come dnt and get with Mi. OaWffcll ami hoar A very grave charge has been brov.ght against the President of the United States by his personal and political friends that of having nominated J. J.

Van Alen to be Embassador to Italy, knowing thai the said nomination had been sold to Van Alen by ex-Secretary Whitney for the sum of 850,000, which was turned into the democratic campaign fund last year. It is stated by those who enjoy the closest personal relations with Mr. Cleveland, that he of the $50,000 contribution and the terms upon which it was made, and that the nomination of Van Alen was sent to the Senate until he had refused to relinquish his claim thereto for the return of the 850,000 contribution, which certain friends of Mr. Cleveland offered to contribute, in order to prevent the consummation of the scandalous bargain, and had threatened to make public the transaction. As might be supposed, this charge has created a sensation in Congress.

The nomination of Van Alen is now before the Senate committee on foreign relations, although the chances are that an attempt will be made to hush the matter up by getting Cleveland to withdraw the nomination. To judge from remarks made by Senators it would be next to impossible to get a favorable repori from the committee on this nom ination, and even if a favorable report were secured, the Senate would in all probability reject the nomination by a considerable mojority. To listen to the arguments put forward by the democrats of the House in favor of the bill for the repeal of all laws providing for Federal supervision of elections carries one back to the day of Calhoun and nullification. The democrats are ignoring the fact tnat the blood of a million Americans was shed in determining that this was a Nation, and are trotting out all of the old worn-out State's rights ideas that were used in Congress for a decade previous to the rebellion. The tariff mystery has been increased by the official announcement that no information concerning the new tariff bill would be given out before the bill was reported to the House and that it was altogether uncertain when that would be.

It is evident to all close observers that a hitch in the tariff program has bran It was only a few days ago that Chairman Wilson stated positively that the work of preparing the bill would be hastened by assigning the preparation of the various schedules to subcommittees, a statement that was not in accordance with the views of the power behind the committee, as Mr. Wilosn now announces without a blnsh that no work will be done by sub-committees. The mystery surrounding the preparation of this bill is daily adding to the number of those who believe that the democratic members of the House Ways and Means committee will have little or nothing to do with making a tariff bill, and that all that will be required of them will be to accept without question and report to the House the bill which will be submitted to them by the administration. That being the program it became absolutely necessary to announce that no information would be given out until the bill is reported. By saying nothing members will give away nothing.

Secretary Hoke Smith may find himself oard pushed to explain some queer things about his management of the opening of the Cherokee Strip; likewise Secretary Dan Lamont some of the odd capers of the U. S. soldiers, such as shooting down citizens, if the present i plans for a congressional investigation of the whole business dees not miscarry. Representative Springer of the House committee on Banking and Currency, has heard from the boss, and notwithstanding nis positive announce ment weeks ago that his committee was opposed to the repeal of the ten per cent tax on state bank currency and would not report a bill for that purpose to the House, the committee began an elaborate series of hearings on the subject. Wise democrats in the House do not announce their intention until they learn what the boss intends shall be taken up; they thus avoid hu miliation.

The situation'in the Senate remains much the same, excepl that the person alities which have crept into thedebate during the lust few days have raised new obstacles to anything like a satis factory compromise. Still, compromise seems to the most unpredjudiced ob-" servers the only way to get any legisla tion dealing with silver, but the more the Senators quarrel the more difficult compromise will be. Another attempt is to be made next week to force a vote by keeping the Senate in session twelve hours a day, but nobody seriously believes that it will do more than demonstrate the impossibility of forcing a vote. The committee on Rules has not acted on Senator Piatt's resolution proposing cloture, and it is not likely that it will. 95, 910 and $20 Oenninti Confederate Bills only five cents and 100 bills 10 cents each; $25c and 60c shin-plasters 10 cents each; 91 and 82 bills 25 centa each.
