GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAT
Theresas nothing tame or disconragirg
about the local dog show yesterday. The
spacious rink was crowded all day and
the immense number of visitors was made
up of all classes. It was a successful day
and no doubt of it Ladies were almost as
numerous as gentlemen, while youngsters
were present in strong force. Nobody
seemed more enjqyed than the little ones,
BEAU AXD LITTLE GIPST QUEEN.
and when a big mastiff put out its paw to
any of them, or a little pug jumped round
for their pleasure, the seventh
heaven of delight was reached.
There is always lots of fun, and
even much for older people to learn in watch
ing the children trying to get on good terms
with the dogs at the show. Of course the pugs,
poodles and such like are the great attraction
for ladies at the dog shows, andlyesterday was
no exception. Such expressions as: "What a
sweet little creature" and "What a handsome
little pet," were plentiful. And the little
puggies seemed to know all about the affec
tionate phrases as they danced about.
PITTSBUBG'S IROMINENT PEOrLE.
targe numbers of Pittsburg's most prominent
people were present and were apparently well
satisfied with what they saw. Prof. Parker's
wonderful dogs went through their phenom
enal feats amid the applause of hundreds
of spectators. It would almost seem safe
to say, judging from yesterday's attendance,
that the show will be a success. Certain
ly the untiring efforts of such gentlemen as
President Gregg and McLean will make it suc
cessful if it is possible. They are obliging and
Maior Taylor and Mr. Najlor resumed the
duties of judges in the morning and had fin
ished their labors shortlyafter dinner. During
a conversation the Major expressed himself ti
the effectthat the entries were good, but that
' the show had suffered by the local associa
tion withdrawing from the American Kennel
Club. He went on to say that this circum
stance had prevented many of the best dogs in
. the country from coming. Mr. Najlor resumed
his worK by judging the collie puppies. George
Will's oretty little Pupsie, by Rob RoyXlL,
carried off first honors, and the victory was a
ponnlar one. Mr. Will also came gloriously to
the front in the bull terrier classes, capturing
noless than four prizes. His white bitch Flirt
is really a hand-omc dog in her class and easily
beat the Connecticut bitch Nell Bright, winner
of several first prizes in the East.
THE PEETTr BLACKS AND TANS.
The black and tan terriers made a good show,
and Mr. W. G. McKnight, of this city, gained a
good victory with his dog Toby. The Irish ter
riers were not numerous, and there were no
Skye terriers and only one Italian greyhound.
Morris Dallet's three Blenheim spaniels were
really pretty little things, and attracted even
bodv in the show. They all got prizes, little
Banjo carrying off first honors. The pugs were
not numerous, but they were good. Mrs. A. B.
Van Home, of Allegheny, had a beauty there
in Dandy, who obtained a first prize.
Major Tajlor commenced wit!i the champion
black and tan setter dogs. Little Boy, owned
by S. G. Dixon, of Philadelphia, was awarded
first prize. Little Buy has a brilliant record,
having won seven first prizes previous to yester
dav. Roxie, a bitch, owned by H. F. Smith, of
Philadelphia, w on first prize in the champion
bitch class. She was. valued at 1,000 and has
been a remarkable winner. The Irish setters
cenerall v ere a tolerably good lot. Mr. B. F.
Lewis' Blarney tookaway championship honors
ior doss, and Mollle Bawn, owned by C. T.
Thompson, of Philadelphia, was the champion
among the bitches. The judging gave general
satistaction yesterday, except a change in the
collie class, made by Mr. JTavlor. that caused
extreme surprise. He took first prize from
Rob Koy IU. and gave it to Mr. Schacffer's
Prince. Rob was judred first on Tuesday, and
for some reason or other be was put down to
second yesterday. Following were the awards

Meinrod. He says that his dog has only been
shown three times and has won a prize each
time. At the last local show he was third in the
class in which Sir Charles, the champion, was
first; at the same show Meinrod won a special
for 2-year-old St. Bernards and was third at the
Cincinnati show. The dog is the best in the
Kevstone Kennel', and the kennels have sev
eral good winners in them.
BUSINESS IS MEANT.
A Straight-Forward Offer for Ridee to Run
There is every likelihood that another race
will take place shortly between Joe Ridge and
E. C. McClelland. The Ridge party, at least,
are anxions for another contest under slightly
different conditions. The following challenge
seems to indicate that Ridge and his backers
mean business. Pat Ridge, brother of Joe,
called at this office last evening and left the
"Hearing that E. C. McClelland is expressing
himself freely as to how easily he defeated Joe
Ridge is in a ten mile race, I make the follow
ing offer: Joe Ridge will run McClelland ten
miles, providing Ridge is allowed a quarter of
a mile the best of it at the finish. In other
words, if McClelland ran run ten miles sooner
that Ridge can run 9 miles, the latter loses
the race. I will make th's match for $250 a
side, and I now deposit $50 forfeit with The
Dispatch. I will meet the McClelland party
at The Dispatcii office to-morrow, Thunday,
eveninsatS o'clock, prepared to make a match.
This offer is certainly one that a flyer like Mc
Clelland will not refuse."

THET NEED .OME MONEY.
Mitchell Makes a Strange Challenge to Jem
A telegram from London, England, states
that Charley Mitchell has challenged Jem
Smith to a 12-round contest, Queensberry rules,
for C0O or 500 a side. Nothing is stated about
the size of glove to be used.
It may be that both Mitchell and Smith are
inclined to make arrangements whereby lots of
money can bo secured. It seems strange that
Mitchell should be so ready to challenge Smith.
Speaking of the challenge last evening Tom
Sterck, who knows both men well, said: "Smith
can whin a man like Mitchell every morning
before breakfast for a week, either with or
without gloves. Smith will fight with bare
fists if the battle is all right."
Something Abont Pontine
Pontiac, the horse bought by Milton Young
from the Dwyer Bros., was bred in England.
He is by Pero Gomez out of Agenona, by Ad
venturer. Pontiac as a youngster was owned
by P. Lorillard, but never won a race in En
gland. In February. 18SG. Pontiac was sold at
the Rancocas sale to tbeDwyers forS17,500. He
ran for them in ten races that year, winning
three, viz., the Conev Island stakes, worth
52.725, a pure of &5C0 later In the meeting and
a purse of 750 on the second day of the Mon
mouth meeting. Pontiac did not run in 1887.
but last year he ran in five races, winning a 5700
sweepstakes at Brooklyn in May, a parse of $000
and a sweepstakes of 550 at Sheepshead Bay
in June, which ended his career on the turf.
WHI Walt Awhile.
It was statea yesterday on good authority
that the city poolsellers will not attempt to
have an amendment attached to the Lafferty
bill to legalize poolselling in cities. It is
thought that allowing the present bill to be
come law without trouble the chances for an
amendment will he better after the new law
has been tried. This resolve on the part of the
city poolsellers makes it certain that the Laf-"
ferty bill will become law.

were taken, the jury finding in favor of the
defendant on the ground that she had been

he readily succumbed to the arguments of

PROTESTANT MINISTERS IN ARMS.
A Petition Against the Grant of$400,000 to
the Jesuits of Qncbcc.
Montreal, January 30. The Protestant
Ministerial Association has adopted a pro
test against the recent grunt of $400,000 to
the Jesuits of the Province of Quebec. The
In face of the fact thtt the property for
uV J -' i-h .Scmnity reverted
legally to the crown In 1773, when the Order of
Jesuits was abolished by Clement XIV., the
acknowledgment of the Legislature of Quebec
of the moral obligation to make compensation
for the said estates is utterly unwarranted,
and constitutes a grave impeachment
of the honor, and even the honesty,
of a deliberate decision of the British
Crown, taken after careful Inquiry over a cen
tury ago. The acknowledgment is a most dan
gerous precedent and one that may lead to the
exhumation of other claims to arrextent that
it is impossible to foresee. The powers
conceded to the Pope in the act con
stitute a perilous encroachment upon the
sovereignty of Her Gracious Majesty.
This Association therefore avails itself
of the privilege granted in the British North
America act of making an appeal to the Gov
ernor General in council "from any act or de
cision ot any provincial authority affecting any
right or privilege of the Protestant or Catholic
minority of the Queen's subjects m relation to
education," and will take measures to invite
their fellow Protestants throughout the
province to join in taking such appeal.
Rural Deau Lindsav, the Rev. Dr. Mac
Vicar, the Rev. Mr. Pitcher, the Rev. Mr.
Uriham and the Rev. Dr. "Wells were ap
pointed a committee to arrange for obtaining
signatures to the petition from Protestants
and present it to the Governor General.

Are Alone to Blame,
AND DEMANDS A CHANGE OP POLICY.
President Clereland Sends a Message to Congress
Upon the Snrjjcct
Additional and important information on
the Samoan trouble was sent to Congress
yesterday by the President. A 'diary of
American Vice Consul Blacklock, just re
ceived, is included. The Consul says that
he saw the German war ship seize a boat
carrying the American flag. Many other
outrages were perpetrated. Bismarck wants
the American representatives instructed to
co-operate with his forces. He has sent a
proposal for another conference.
"Washington, January 30. The Presi
dent to-day sent to Congress additional cor
respondence relative to Samoan affairs, ac
companied by the following message:
To the Congress:
I had the honor on the 15th inst, to commu
nicate to your honorable body certain corre
spondence and documents in relation to affairs
in the Samoan Islands, and having since re
ceived further dispatches from the Vice Consul
at Apia and the commander of the United
States naval vessel Nipsic in those waters, I
lose no time in laying them before you. I also
transmit herewith the full text ot instructions
from Prince von Bismarck to the German
Minister at this capital, which was communi
cated on the afternoon of the 28ihinst. This
appears to be an amplification of prior tele
graphic instruction on the same subject com
municated through the same channel, and
which being set forth in the note of the Secre
tary of State to Count vonArco Valley, the
German Minister, of the 12th inst., was duly
laid before Congress, with my last message in
relation to Samoan affairs.
GERMANY WANTS TO CONFER.
It is also proper to inform yon that on Mon
day, the 28th inst, on the occasion of the com
munication of the note of the Chancellor, the
Secretary of State was given to understand by
the German Minister that a proposition from
his Government to that of the United States
for a conference on the Samoan subject was on
its way by mail, having left Berl'in on the 20th
inst, so that its arrival hero in due course of
mail can be looked for in a very short time.
In reDlv to an innuirv from the Secretary of
State whether the proposition referred to was
for a renewal of the joint conference between
the United States, Germany and Great Britain,
which was suspended in July, 1887, or for the
consideration of Samoan affairs ab novo, the
German Minister stated his Inability to answer
until the proposition which left Berlin on the
20th inst should have been received.
I shall hereafter communicate to the Con
gress all information before me in relation to
the Samoan status. '
The correspondence accompanying the
message gives an amplified account of re
cent events in Samoa, an outline of which
has already been telegraphed and published.
It opens with a record of current events by
Vice Consnl Blacklock, including an ac
count of the fight between the natives and
the Germans, as heretofore printed.
A DRUNKEN OUTRAGE.
On December 15 and 16, the Consul says,
about 150 sailors came ashore from a Ger
man man-of-war and, becoming drunk, mal
treated the natives badly. The Marshal of
his omce, he also says, was beaten by these
drunken fellows. There were only old men,
women and children in town, and it was
with difficulty he prevented a squad ot
armed natives being brought in and attack
ing the Germans.
December 20 he says the German Consul
sent Mataafa word to come on board the
Adler to-day and his life would be spared.
He of course did not go, as he knew he
would never come on shore agaip. The
Consnl says he arranged a meeting of the
three Consuls ot the German consulate, but
that nothing could be done, as the German
Consul said he had lost so many men he
must now take the matter in his own bands
and revenge their losses. The day's diary
closes as follows:
Captain Mullan sends more marines on shore
to this Consulate with a gatliug gun, and has50
men detailed on board the Nipsic to land at
once, in charge of the first officer, whenever
the signal is made at this Consulate. .
December 21 The German Consul informed
Mr. Blacklock that a German man-of-war
would go to Matafagetcle and wait one hour
lor the Mataafe natives to come on board and
give up their guns. Mr. Blacklock protested
and notibed him that there was American
property in the town. The natives warned
British and Americans to put a black band on
their arms as they intended to retaliate on the
Germans if attacked again.
AN ARBITRARY CONSUL.
December 22 A meeting of three Consuls
and the three representative captains was held
December 22 to arrange for the better
security of inhabitants within the neutral
boundary, but the German Consul would agree
January 1 Captain Mullan having written to
the Captain of the German vessel which seized
the American boat the other day, received a
reply to the effect that there was no flag flying
on the boat. This is not true, as the boat was
seen from this office, and by others in other
parts of the town, plainly flying the American
flag. This is the usual way the Germans adopt
for straightening out the outrages they com
mit In conclusion the Captain says:
I am of the opinion that our Government
should have at this point more vessels, especial
ly at this time. I have caused to be posted in
the town of Apia, a notice that the lives of all
American citizens will .find protection on
board this vessel under my command, and that
at the first intimation or outburst of hostilities
in Apia, I shall land my force for the protection
of their property.
The lastletteris one from Prince Bismarck
to Count von Arco Valley, of which the
following is a translation:
SIinistby op Foreign Affairs, i
Berlin, January 13, 18SD.
I have already notified Your Excellency that
according to telegraphic communications from
Apia on the 18th of December of last year, a
detachment of German naval forces, which had
landed at the requisition of the Imperial Con
sul for the protection of German settlements
which were endangered by the conflicts be
tween the native parties there, was attacked by
armed Samoans belonging to the party of Chief
Mataafa. This unprovoked attack is said to
have taken place under the leadership of an
American named Klein. On this occasion
more than 50 German soldiers and officers were
killed and wounded.
In consequence of this we have been trans
planted from the territory of mediatorial nego
tiations, by which the imperial consul In Apia
was trying to reconcile the contending parties,
and for which ho has sought the co-operation of
his English and American colleagues, into a
state of war with the assailants t our regret
We shall carry on the contest which has been
forced upon us by Mataafa and his followers
with the utmost consideration for English and

diers, and the protection or our countrymen
and their property. As they on their part are
always Tilth the Tamasese, onr interference will
necessarily assume the character of assistance
to Tamasese. In the effort for justice, and the
punishment of a murderous crime, we hope for
the co-operation of the treaty powers in Samoa
in friendship with us, and we ask the United
States Government to be good enough to fur
nish the consols and commanders of its ships of
war in Samoa such instructions.
Armed forces thero are instructed to avoid
andto prevent all injury to neutral commerce
and property, and to adopt measures of re
prisal nd destruction only against the fol.
lowers of the party which Initiated the contest
against our troops by a murderous attack. We
shall, of course, abide by the agreements with
America and England with respect to Samoa,
and pay due regard une'er all circumstances to
the rights of those cowers as established by
the treaty. I beg Your Excellency to bring

Crown Prince Kndolf, of Austrln-Unngary,
Snddenly Stricken by Apoplexy
Great Excitement In Vienna
Vienna, January 30. The announce
ment ol the sudden death of the Crown
Prince Rudolf here to-day caused profound
surprise and great sorrow. The Crown
Prince on Monday went on a shooting ex
cursion to Meyerling, accompanied by sev
eral guests, including Prince Thilip of Co
burg and Count Hoyos. He felt somewhat
indisposed yesterday,, and therefore excused
himself from attending the family dinner
party at the Hotburg. ."When, the shooting
guests assembled this morning the Crown
Prince did nof appear.
Immediate inquiries were "made, and the
guests were overcome by the terrible news that
the Crown Prince was dead from.a stroke of
apoplexy. The shock of the calamity struck
the Hofburg like lightning at 6:15 A. Jt. The
offlciarannouueement that apoplexy was the
cause of death modified the alarm of the pub
lic arising from press rumors, that the Prince
had been killed while shooting. Iprge crowds
traversed the main streets and assembled in
groups discussing the event.
The Bourse first learned the news through
the Bourse Commisary General. A paralysis of
business ensued. Members rushed to the
streets and besieged the telegraph offices. The
Bourse was immediately closed, and the com
mittee decided to keep it closed until Friday.
The Reichsrath also adjourned amid great ex
citement. The official Gazelle says: "Fate has inflicted
a crushing blow upon the Imperial house and
the people of Austro-Hungary. Our uni
versally esteemed Crown Prince is dead. The
deeply loved son of the Emperor and Empress,
the life's happiness of his affectionate spouse,
the dearly loved and honored brother of the
Princesses Gisela and Valerie, the pride of the
Imperial house and the hope of his faithful
people, in the flower of his youth and the full
ness of his strength, sinks into an early grave.
With deepest mourning, with hearts brimming
with sorrow, the people of the empire turn
their sorrowful glances toward the throne in
hereditary love and fidelity, and join in an
earnest prayer that God will grant the Im
perial family the consolation that mere humaif
words, even when sounding from a million
tongues, can scarcely brine."
Telegrams of condolence have been received
from all of the leading Governments of the

Additional Testimony Before the Commls
slon Agninst the Lnnd League.
London, January 30. During the ses
sion of the Parnell" Commission to-day the
reading of speeches of Parnellites taken in
evidence was suspended in order to allow
some testimony to be given. Mr. O'Keefe,
Cashier of the Castle Island branch of the
National Bank, deposed that Timothy
Horan, the Treasurer of the League at
Castle Island, had an account with the bank
and passed checks there drawn by Mr. Kenny,
member of Parliament.
The object of this evidence was to connect
the Parnellites with outrages incited by the
members of the League in Castle Island. Mr.
Hanley, agent of an estate in Thurles, also tes
tified. He related difficulties which had arisen
between himself and the tenants as soon as the
League wtis establisbed in the district He
was positive that many farmers were forced to
join the League, the terrorism of wbicb, he
said, injured trade everywhere.
At the conclusion of the testimony the read'
ing of speeches was resumed.

The police managed by a feint to escape the
great crowd that was waiting to greet Mrr
O'Brien. At the Chester depot, however, there
was another large gathering of people, and Mr.
O'Brien was enthusiastically cheered.
Mr. O'Brien arrived at Kingstown this after
noon. The Lord Mayor and other Parnellites

route, conveying O'Brien to the Clomel prison
via the King s Bridge station.
ATTACKS THE DEAD.
A London Paper AssniU the Crown Prince
LONDON, January 31. All the conserva

trian Crown Prince in terms of
praise. The Daily A'etcs, however,
savs that his death suggests reflections
of "a different sort from those inspired bv the
deathbeds of Emperor Frederick and Presi
dent Garfield. "Ruiolf," it says, "was not a
man of great intellect nor of impressive char
acter. His sole title to distinction was that he
was the son of his father. Of his domestic
relations it is needless to speak."
It is stated that official private telegrams
from Vienna affirm that the death of the Crown
Prince was due to a wound inflicted with a
HOW TO MAKE A GOOD ROAD.
Mr. A. J. Cnsiatt Hna a Strong Preference
for the Macadam.
A. J. Cassatt, writing to J. G. "Williams,
of "Westtown, Chester county, in reply to
the latter's request for his opinion as to the
best and most economical way of making a
stone road, strongly approves the
macadam as against the t el ford
pavement. The latter, he says, is
likely to become rough by the wearing away
of the layer of broken stones, causing the
large rocks which form the foundation to
become exposed. The macadam road being
composed entirely of broken stone of every
size, cannot, become rough. The stones in
a macadam road should be small enough to
go through a two-iuch ring, and 16 ieet is
wide enough for the paved part of a
country road. If there is much heavy haul
ing1 the depth of stones should be 12 inches,
otherwise 9 inches would be sufficient.
There should he placed on the top of the
stones a thin coat of screenings (made by
the crusher in the process of crushing the
stone) to assist in the binding process, and
the whole should be rolled with a steam or

Senator Allison's Position as to the
Treasury Portfolio Still
THE PEIZE PUZZLE OP THE DAY.
Yice President Morton Preparing to Shine
JINGO SPEECHES ENLIVEN THE SENATE.
A Contested Seat in Congress Tirtnally Decided
by a Second Election.
Senator Allison is becoming a mystery.
The 15-14puzzle is child's play Compared
with guessing whether he will or will not
accept the Treasury portfolio. Mr. Morton
is remodeling a handsome residence in
"Washington, presumably with 3 view to
entertaining his friends. In spite of some
warlike speeches in the Senate, the majority
of the Senators are opposed to doing battle
with Germany over the Samoan Islands.
rSFXCIAI. TELEGBAM TO THE DtSFATCRl
"Washington, January 30. Senator
Allison spent most of the day in his com
mittee room. He was besieged by callers,
Senatorial and otherwise. To all of them
he was courteous, but most of them were
easily dismissed by the evident absorption
of the Senator in the mountain of mail mat
ter which had accumulated during his ab
sence. Many of his letters were from friends
urging him not to give np the Senatorship
and his chances for the Presidency for the
brief glory of a term as a Cabinet officer, to
which would be attached the possibility of
disagreements which would lead to his
resignation before the end of his term.
If Mr. Allison has disclosed his inten
tions to anybody his confidents have so far
kept the secret well, but in spite of a lack
of direct statement enough has leaked out
to assure his friends that the Senator left
General Harrison without having been in
duced to accept the Treasury portfolio; that
the President-elect refused to consider the
rejection as final, and that a greater pressure
than ever is being brought to bear on the
Iowa Senator to induce him to consent.
Those of Senator Allison's friends who
look only to his own interests urge him to
reject all Cabinet propositions. Their ad
vice is in harmony with his inclinations.
Another set of friends urge him to accept,
because that would open the way for a new
Senatorial clique in Iowa, which would,
probably, during the four years of Mr. Al
lison's Cabinet term, arrange the machine
to leave the Senator permanently out in the
cold. Another set of friends nrge him to
refuse, because they believe in that case the
Treasury mantle would fall on the shoulders
of Mr. Clarkson.
In the midst of all this advice Senator
Allison keeps his own counsel, except in the
case of a few personal friends who have no
other interests bnt his in view, and he will
only accept to relieve President Harrison
from a decidedly distressing situation.
The great difficulty that lies in the way of
making a selection for the Treasury is the
general demand for the choice of a "Western
man far removed from the influenced "Wall
HE IS THE MAN.
Aside from Senator Allison there is no
one who stands ont prominently as a par
ticularly fit person for the place. There
are plenty of bankers, railroad men and
corporation attorneys who are good finan
tiers, but they all seem to be hampered by
some connection which tbe popular vote
would declare to be inimical to the interests
of the whole people.
The row raised by the report that the
office of Secretary of the Interior wonld go
to Hon. John M. Thurston, the attorney of
the Union Pacific Eailroad, has mad" Har
rison all the more anxions to" select a Secre
tary of the Treasury who could not be ac
cused of a secret alliance with the banking
and speculating millionaires. Clarkson is
a bright man, but he does not size up to the
place. No one but Allison fills the bill.
"Whether Allison will finally help Har
rison out of his dilemma is the question.
Certainly he has not yet decided to do so.

rsrECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATC7I.1
"Washington, January 30. The domes
tic movements of Vice President-elect Mor
ton indicate that he intends giving brilliant
entertainments during his term, probably
rivaling those of the "Whitneys, who have
led society such a lively race for four years.
The residence of Prof. Alexander Graham
Bell, wbich he has leased, is one of the
most spacious, elegant and conspicuous in
the city. Mr. Morton is about to make ex
tensive repairs and alterations. Among
other things, his New York architect has
orders to prepare plans for the enlargement
of the dining room. This will be accom
plished by building additions at the south
east end of the house. The dining room is
at present large enough to seat 18 persons at
dinner. The" proposed additions will in
crease very much the size of the room.
The house occupies one of those triangu
lar pieces of ground so common in this city,
and with. the extensive parking on all sides,
it has almost the appearance ot a fine su
burban residence standing in the midst of a
lawn. Architecturally it is an imposing
pile, the towers and hfgh pointed roof being
conspicuous even in that locality of fine
residences. In front ot the house is a small
reservation filled with shrubbery, and then,
farther on. is Scott Circle, with its parterres
of flowers in proper season.
The entrance is from Bhode Island ave
nue, under a porte cochere. There is a
spacious entrance hall with a grand stair
case leading to the upper stories. On the
left of the hallis the library, and on the
right the reception.room. Leading from tbe
latter room there is an entrance to the par
lor, and farther along is the drawing room,
and then the dining room, all en suite, and
connected with the central hall. The ar
rangement of the house nlaces the living
rooms on the south side. The first floor is
handsomely finished in hard woods, and tbe
rooms are large and spacious, and well
adapted for social purposes. Mr. Morton
will furnish the house after the workmen
To the rear of the residence on Fifteenth
street is a spacious stable, with stalls for a
dozen horses, and connected with the house
by electric bells.
JINGOISM IS NOT KAUPANT.
Senators Not Generally In Faror of War
SPECIAL T!LEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
"Washington, January 30. It is evi
dent, even with the small progress already
made in the discussion of the Samoan ques
tion, that there is a great diversity of opin
ion among Senators as to what -should be
done. Of course they have not yet heard
all sides of the story, but the hot heads who
think that a foreign war would be a good
thing to more thoroughly unite the North
and the South in sentiment, assume that
Germany has given a casus belli and that
she should be immediately whipped.
Tbe jingo sneeches that were made by
Dolph and Beagan to-day were plentifully
interlarded with sarcastic remarks from
Senators who believe that this country
should and can keep its fingers out of for

Dolph asserted that the Samoan Islands
were of great importance in the defense o'f
the Pacific coast, it was immediately re

KNOCKED OUT THE EXPERTS.
They Are Unable to Distinguish Between
the Hand nnd Stenm Printed Bills.
SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DtSPATCH.l
"Washington, January 30. In the hear
ing before the Senate committee to-day on
the qnestion of hand versus steam presses in
the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, a
cood deal of amusement was created by the
test to which Chief Graves subjected the
experts of the plate printers in distinguish
ing between the hand-printed bills and
those printed by steam presses.
The experts failed as often as they suc
ceeded, but it is alleged that this was owing
to a trick of Graves, who had steam-printed
bills printed especially for the occasion, in
which special care was taken in ''wiping"
off the plates. These he placed alongside of
the poorest specimens of hand-printed bills.
Naturally some of the bills from the steam
presses seemed cleaner and better printed
than those from the hand presses.
QUIETLY DOING NOTHING.
The Senate Holds a Secret Session on the
Extradition Treaty Without Result.
"Washington, January 30. It is under
stood that the entire afternoon secret session
of the Senate was consumed in the discus
sion ot the British extradition treaty, but
no conclusion was reached or vote taken.
It is gathered from thetoneof to-day'sdis-cussion
that there is a strong disposition
among a number of Senators to recommit
the treaty to the Committee on Foreign Re
lations, tlitf effect of which, from the stand
point of the administration Senators, wonld
be to kill it as far as this Congress is con
cerned. At any rate, when the Senate adjourned
no date was fixed "for continuing the con
sideration of the treaty, and it is somewhat
doubtful whether it will again be considered
by the Senate as at present constituted.
