PROPOSITION TO "ESTABLISH A SUB-
TREASURY IN GALVESTON.
An Important flatter for Coiigrew-Jinlso
llcnenn Opts Credit for Nnval Hills—Fev-
erish Anslcty Anions Democrats
Concerning tho Nt;.\t House.
Washington', December 8.—[Special]—
One of the most important matters to Gal-
veston that may come beforo congress at
this session i.-s the proposition to establish
n gub-treasur.v in the city. It is true that
there is a good ileal of legislative opposition
to any expansion of the treasury service,
which was made very apparent when it
was suggested that an assistant treasurer bo
located at Louisville, Ky., but even when
that suggestion failed to receive counten-
ance in the committee on ways and means
It was said that if another addition of this
character should ba made to the govern-
mental service that Galveston was a more
proper point in every respect than tho city
then under discussion. The fact that a sub-
treasury exists at Cincinnati militated
against any claims presented by the friends
of Louis viilo.
IN BEIIALl' OF GALVESTON
it is represented that the extent of the
monetary transactions of the government
tenders the establishment of a depository
and the appointment of a custodian of the
public moneys at tli.it port a necessary
measure of economy. "By tho accepted
tests of geographical positions," it
is urged, "accessibility, distributing power
and present and prospective collections
of public money, Galveston commends it-
self as a proper point for the establishment,
of such depository." Whether congress can
bo induced at this short session to take ac-
tion on this proposal to put an assistant
treasurer at Galveston is, of course, a pro-
blem, but many strong arguments cau be
presented in favor of such action.
CREDIT TO JUDGE REAGAN.
Judge Reagan has received full credit for
the introduction of a couple of bills to in-
crease tho number of naval vessels, but it
ehould be stated that he only introduced
them "by request," a term used by senators
when a measure presented by them is not
original, but is only brought to the atten-
tion of the senate to oblige outside parties.
The parties in this Instance arc J. W. Gray-
don, late lieutenant United States navy, and
bis associates, who are the owners of patents
for ordnance und high-power explosives.
The first measure provides for two steel
rams, furnished with engines and boilers
calculated to develop a speed of not less
than twenty-one knots per hour, and to be
constructed in accordance with the plans
groposed by Rear-admiral Amnien, United
tates navy, said rams to be supplied with
an armament of high power rifled guns and
torpedo throwers, built in accordance with
plans of J. W. Graydon, late of tho navy.
The cost of the rams is not to exceed $700,000
TWO STEEL CRUISERS.
Provision is also made in a separate meas-
ure for the construction of two steel
cruisers of the same steaming capacity as
the rams, and to be similarly armed. Cost

CIVIL SERVICE RULES EXTENDED.
The president to-day signed nn order
which extends the civil service rules to tho
railway mail service. This action has been
under consideration for some time. The
possibility was discussed in these dispatches
some days ago. It clfects a large number of
government employes whose work can bo
classed as skilled labor. There are about
6000 employes of the railway mail service.
Oi these the only officials exempted from
tho operation of the rules are the general
superintendent and assistant general super-
intendent Hereafter when the superin-
tendent wishes to fill a vacancy in the ser-
vice he will have to send through the post-
master-general to the civil service commis-

SENATOR PLUMB'S ACTION.
The action of Senator Plumb in opposing
one fcaturo of the tariff bill as reported
from the finance committee has created
some bad feeling among republican mem-
bers of the senate, although there is no split
In the party. Several quiet conferences
were held to-day. Cautious senators when
approached merely ventured the opinion
that Senator Plumb's action was ill-ad-
vised. A republican official who can make
as close a guess as any one said this after-
noon that the finance committee would
adopt Mr. Plumb's amendment or compro-
mise, so as to get tho bill through the sen-
ate. There is no likelihood that it will pass
the house, but tho republican senators see
an imperative necessity for the passing of
the bili by the senate at this session.
DEMOCRATIC leaders depressed,
owing to tiie apatiiv concerning the
Washington, December 8.—The Evening
Star has the following: There is a feeling of
great anxiety and depression among the
leaders of the democratic party in the I
house on account of the course being fol-
lowed by democratic senators in tho tariff
matter. They are almost disheartened by
it. The democrats of the ways and means
committee put their souls into the fight in
the liouse and feel that the battle is still on
and must be kept up to theiast. They think
that the senate bill should bo fought with
the greatest persistence and vigor, so that
every defect in it may be exposed, and feel
that any other course toward it would be
equivalent almost to a confession of judg-
m ii'. They are surprised at the passive
way in which the democratic senators ap-
pear to bo conducting themselves. Nearly
all the liard work in getting up the facts
and figures has already been done by the
■ways and means committee, and the senators
have but to possess themselves of the
information now easy of access. Yet it 13
complained that they have shown no dispo-
sition to do So, and none of them has under-
token a vigorous championship of the par-
ty cause. All that tho democrats of the
house want is that the defects they think
tHey see in the senate bill should bo dragged
out, into daylight and vigorously attacked
And denounced. They do not care whether
the bill passes the senate or not, and they
don't want to have to take it up with (he
house at all this session. They desire that
the democratic Benr.tors shall make every
fcoiat possible against the measure, and
when it reaches the house that, it will be al-
lowed to lie in committee. They say, how-
ever, that they can not afford to let,
tho biil go without criticism, as it
has practically so far, and that if tho
senators fail to do their duty, the ways and
means committee will bo obliged to take it
up. After all tho work they have done tho
prospect of having to go ail over it again
has a horror for them, but if some of the
senators don't take up tho case, they feel
tlicy will have to do so. One of the mem-
bers of the committee said to-day that ho

concerning the composition of the next
Washington, December 8.—[Special]—
Tho feverish anxiety of politicians about
tho capitol concerning the composition of
the house in tho next congress was illus-
trated yesterday in a marked manner. Dur-
ing the afternoon the report spread like
wildfire that Governor Ilili had issued a
certificate of election to Mr. Bacon, demo-
cratic candidate in the Fifteenth New York
district. Tho basis of the report is said to
be a telegram received from New York to
that cfTeet. Apparently no effort was made
to verify the report, but it was accepted on
both sides as true, and speculation became
almost a roar. The republicans, chagrined
and indignant, said that the attempt to
overcome their majority had been given up
in tho south, as that would make it too un-
popular, and the leaders were now depend-
ing upon the executives and the courts of
northern states to carry out their plans.
The democrats accepted apparently as a
matter of course this reported addition to
the ranks of their members-elect, and
claimed that it would result in giving them
a majority of one in the next house. The
fact that Mr. Bacon had gone to New York
operated to prevent close inquiry into tho
truth of the reportat the time. This morn-
ing it occurred to some one, after the publi-
cation of the facts, that a certificate had
been issued to Mr. Stivers, republican can-
didate, to investigate tho origin of yester-
day's rumor. It was finally traced, it was
said, to the facetious assistant doorkeeper
of the house from New York, who started it
by saying that "New York had saved her

El paso, Tex., December 8.—The great
annual religious exercises of the Mexicans,
in honor of tho Lady of Guadalupe, the
patron saint of Mexico, was opened to-day.
The city of Juarez is thronged with visi-
tors from the surrounding country. The
two ceremonies which the Mexicans par-
ticularly delight to give-vent to their re-
ligious "enthusiasm, is bull fighting and

advertised on the hand bills as being in
honor of "Our Lady of Guadalupe." The
immense amphitheater in Juarez was filled
to-day with people'gathered to witness the
opening exhibition of bull lighting. A
great number of gambling places are in full

and was witnessed by many American
tourists. The sport of the arena will be

WILL THROTTLE ANARCHISM.
Austin, Tex., December 8.—The capitol
board and the capitol receiving board havo
passed out of existence and into history.
To-day the first named board had its last
meeting, heard the final report of Architect
E. C. Miller, superintendent of construction
and investigating architect, to the effect
that all defects had been remedied, and
agreed that the work was complete accord-
ing to contract, if there is any confidence to
be plaecd in human testimony. The board
at the instance of General Hogg instituted
a personal examination of the paintiug of
tho ironwork in the dome and iron columns
in tho basement. As was found upon in-
spection there could ba no objection to the
dome finish, but Mr. Miller required the
basement columns to bo repainted three
coats. Upon tho contractor agreeing to
have this done tho capitol board
passed in its checks
and the capital receiving hoard convened
and passed a resolution that having im-
plicit confidence in Architect Miller the
building is hereby accepted.
During the session of the board the report
of 31. E. Bell, ex-United States supervising
architect, was read. Mr. Bell had been em-
ployed by the capital syndicate to examine
and report upon t he building. His report
pointed out the same defccts Mr. Miller had
found. He also very clearly showed up the
blunders of the desiguing architect in his
plans and in his failure to supply working
plans, for which he was paid by the state.

rVhexi his lengthy report" had been read ho
isked Mr Miller if liedid not agree with the
conclusions stated. Mr. Miller replied that
except as to one point relating to tho heat-
ing apparatus he did.
Mr. Bell's report stated that the gross
cost of the building was nearly $3,204,580.
The board, before passing tho resolution,
asked Mr. Miller various questions, which
ho answered to the perfect ^satisfaction of
The board's action wrfs entirely harmon-
ious. There was no disposition to object,
every member of the board feeling conscious
that every possible means of detecting
faults and defects had been exhausted, and
nothing remained but to accept or reject all
Colonel Taylor, the contractor, Mr. Wilke,
sub-contractor, Mr. Bell and the press rep-
resentatives were present. Tho conclusion
finally reached was anticipated. Perhaps
there was a little haste in doing so for the
reason that it was apprehended that there
have been misgivings in the puolic mind as
to the stability of the house, and it was de-
sirable to remove doubt.
The assurances of Mr. Miller that the roof
was perfect, and that the masonry was per-
fectly reliable, were very satisfactory.
The comptroller's report will present
many interesting questions relating to the
revenue system. His estimates of the next
two years' expenses are likely to make the
economical statesman unhappy. Several of
the state institutions want largo sums for
improvements, and there is a deficiency in
appropriations of $300,000 to begin with, to
say nothing of the school deficiency. .

Captain J. D. Montgomery of this city,
assistant sergeant-at-arms of the lower
liouse of the last legislature, has received
letters from nearly every one of the old
members, and also many of the now ones,
pledging their support to him for tho same
position at the next session. His well-
known courtesy, competency and energy
shown at tlio last session has made strong
friends of those knowing him.
Quite a large number of old citizens of
the county have removed or are preparing
to change their residences in tlio near fu-
ture. This is probably caused by the de-
plorable troubles which have so long agi-
tated and excitcd the people. Politics and
political questions—the ins and the outs
continually grasping for supremacy—have
been the main cause of- all tho troubles and
also a score of new-made graves.
Were it not for the fact that Hempstead
was an important railroad junction, with a

ly, it would be the deadest railroad town in

A Boy Js Thrown Into a Cage Containing

St. Louis, Mo., December 8.—Willie
Maiers, a thirteen-yoar-old son of a widow
lady, is suffering from a malady that puz-
zles St. Louis physicians. The boy was one
of a large crowd of urchins who was fol-
lowing a dog catcher's wagon, and ono of
the men on the wagon, becoming exasper-
ated with him, threw him into the dog cage.
He was carried several blocks and then
thrown roughly to the sidewalk. The boy is
now a groveling imbecile, subject to fre-
quent spasms, during which he barks,
whines, and acts iuevery way like aeanine.
Physicians have advised that he be sent to
an insane asylum. To-day the police have
taken hold of the matter, and will endeavor
to ferret out the perpetrator of the crime
which has robbed the boy of his reason.

Tho Chicago Police Determined to Fquelch
All Anarchistic Meetings.
Chicago, 111., December 8.—At, a meeting
of the anarchists lust night a call for amass
meeting, to be held to-morrow at D4 West
Lake street, was issued and it was an-
nounced that in case the police would in-
terfere with this meeting an adjournment
would be taken to the Haymarket square,
the scene of the historical bomb throwing,
and that an open air meeting would ba
ii Id there. This is tlio boldest utterance
by the reds since that fateful night, and
trouble is anticipated. The best evidence
of tho truth of this statement is shown in
the fact that Chief of Police Hubbard to-
day issued an order holding nearly the en-
tire city police force or" 1500 men iii reserve
at tho various stations ready to be concen-
trated at any given point on short notice.
When asked what ho proposed to do
Chief Hubbard said: "They will not meet,
either at 54 West Lake street or in the Hay-
market square, nor for that matter will
they meet anywhere in Chicago, either in
the hall or in the open air. If they attempt
it. there will bo a light. We positively will
not allow any further anarchist meetings.
More than that, I am making a full list of
all the saloons and halls where anarchists
congregate, and will recommend to tlio
[ mayor that their licenses bo revoked. There
will bo no temporizing and no hesitancy.
| From this time out any anarchist meeting
will be broken up or prevented. There is no
place in Chicago or America's social
system for these destructionists, and
as far as Chicago is concerned they will not
be allowed any chance to publicly spread
their nefarious doctrines. 1 don't think
they want to fight very badly, but if they
do they can have all they want. They shall
not meet in Chicago, and we will begin by
preventing to-morrow's meeting."

THE DUDLEY CASE.
Something About the Letter Associated With
Ills Name—Investigating Proceedings.
Indianapolis, Ind., December 8.—The fed-
eral grand jury took a recess this evening
until December 17. During tho interim the
federal court will hold a session at Fort
Wayne. As to just what progress the jury
has made in its investigation of the letter
associated with the name of Colonel W. W.
Dudley, late treasurer of the national re-
publican committee, it is difficult to ascer-
tain, as the court explicitly charged tho jury
just prior to adjourning this evening to
carefully guard all matters that transpired
while they were in session. More than 100
witnesses were examined before the jury
during the week, and it is thought
that a goodly number of them were
summoned in the Dudley case It
is known that a copy of the letter
alleged to have been written by Colonel
Dudley was submitted to the jury, and a
dozen or more chairmen and secretaries of
tho republican county committees to whom
it has been supposed copies of tiio letters
were mailed, have been called into court.
Some of the witnesses are reported to have
admitted that they received similar letters,
bearing Colonel Dudley's name, or saw
copies of the same in other hands, but this
is here given as a mere rumor, as nothing
absolutely reliable is obtainable as to what
the witnesses testified to. It is certain that
all the witnesses ip the Dudley case have
not vet been examined. Editors of the Sen-
tinel, who are supposed to know who re-
ceived at least one copy of the Dudley let-
ter, have not yet been before thegrand jury.
Chairman Jewett of the democratic state
central committee was one of the witnesses
examined to-day. It is supposed that the
copy of the Dudley letter which went into
of the Sentinel passed through
a vicious slugging match.
