WINDOM AT KEST. WASHINGTON-, Feb. 2.—Funeral services over the remains of the late Secretary of the Treasury, William Windom, were held at the Church of the Covenant. The vast concourse comprised more officials of the povemmcnt than have ever before gathered together in one edifice. The scene was impressive in its solemnity- and awe- inspiring in its' simple grandeur. Gathered within the walls of the stately white marble church were .the Nation's greatest statesmen, the most renowned diplomates of foreign countries, the highest officers of the army and navy of the United States, the most brilliant women of the social world, while mingling' in the vast crowd were many whose plain dress bespoke their position in social life and emphasized the great truth that "death levels all rank." To a large majority of thos.e present the dead Secretary was personally known, his l*ng -public service having given, him an extended and varied acquaintance, and with many he was personally p.s well as officially intimate. From an early hour there was a constant arrival of friends and admirers of the dead statesman at the late residence, where they were permitted to take a last view of his face, which wore a natural and serene expression. The floral offerings were-beautiful and numerous. The President and Mrs. Harrison sent a large wreath of violets and lilies of the valley, encircled by a band of purple ribbon, crossed with a sheaf of wheat; the Vice-President and Mrs. Morton sent a beautiful wreath of English violets, roses, lilies of the valley and asparagus vine. At 11 o'clock the house was closed to visitors, and soon after brief religious services, ..including a prayer and the reading of the Scriptures, were conducted by Rev. Dr. Hamlin, pastor of. ' the Church of the Cov- nant (Presbyterian). These services were private, and the only persons present were the members of the afflicted family, near relatives, the President and the members of his Cabinet, and the Vice-President with the ladies of their families and a few intimate personal friends. At the termination of the services the remains were removed to the hearse, carried by eight stalwart members of a local military company, the Cabinet officers acting as pall-bearers. Following them came the President and Mrs. Harrison and the family of the dead statesman. The line of carriages moved slowly down Massachusetts avenue to the Church of the Covenant, where ' an immense throng of .officials and citizens had gathered to tender the last token of 'the universal respect in which Mr. Windom was held. There was an air of universal mourning throughout the whole city and the streets in the vicinity of the church where the last rites were performed and along the route taken by the funeral procession were crowded with men, women and . children, who stood in respectful silence, many of them with bared heads, as the mournful cortege passed. There never was a larger purely civic funeral in the city of Washington, and it strikingly evidenced the people's great love and esteem for the dead statesman. The funeral services at the Church of the Covenant began at 12 o'clock. While .exceedingly simple they were profoundly impressive. The attendance comprised all the leading. officials in Washington and their families, including the President and Cabinet, the diplomatic corps, the members of the Supreme Court and the court of claims, Senators and Representatives, officers of the army and navy, the heads of bureaus ard jhiefs of divisions in. the Treasury 1/epaitmen.t, and the Commissioners of -the District of Columbia. Congress was represented by special committees. Rev. Dr. Hamlin officiated. The services began with the reading o'f the Scripture, followed by prayer, in widen the sorrowing family, associates of the deceased and the Nation were remembered. After further reading of Scripture and appropriate selections of music Dr.. Hamlin delivered a brief but eloquent address, referring to the eminent services of the dead statesman and his consistent Christian life, which he characterized as the most comforting" thought to all in this trying moment. At the conclusion of the services the remains were removed to the hearse and a long line of carriages, containing, beside the family and .Cabinet, members of Congress, the Judiciary, Treasury officials and others, took up the line of march to Rock Creek Cemetery, which, is some two miles distant from the church. The services at the grave consisted 'of the reading, of the burial service of the Presbyterian church and a brief prayer, after which the remains were consigned to their final resting- place. '-'•'-' .. -'•:' " WHO WILL SUCCEED 'WISDOM? -•'•.' WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.—The discussion' of the Cabinet vacancy which is going on makes more plain each day the delicate task President Harrison has before him in finding a successor for Secretary VVindora. General Nettleton will be Acting Secretary for ten days by designation of the President and. at the end of that period the choice of a Secretary will probably be made. A good many thing's seem to show that a concerted effort is making in New York to impress on the ['resident the fitness of General Tracy for the Treasury Department, but it is without the knowledge or consent of the latter, who prefers" to remain .SiiiTvtury of *'je Navy. If in the end an Kastom ui'in should be taken it is more liUely to be Tracy than Cornelius N. Bliss, John Jay Knox or j a New England banker, however eminent. Major McKinley told a friend that, while he thought it premature to be discussing a successor before Secretary Windom was buried, if his name came to be considered it would be without his consent, for he could not accept the office if tendered him. There is not much to the talk about ex-Governor Foster, of Ohio. More is heard of the availability of Senator Spooner, of Wisconsin. But the trouble lies in giving the State two places in the Cabinet, as Jerry Rusk is already Secretary of Agriculture. There is a good deal of talk as to the probability that Representative Cannon, of Illinois, may be Mr. Windbnvs successor. Those who. mention his name with approval point to his long service as member and chairman of the appropriations committee and his great familiarity with all the fiscal affairs of the Government as strong arguments in his favor. The gossip about Lymaii J. Gage is complimentary to the Chicago banker's National reputation as a financier, but practically it means nothing, for the Secretary of the Treasury must be a fixed political quantity. Stephen B. Elkins, of West Virginia and New York, is among the possibilities discussed, but it is only in a tentative way. If a movement be make in favor of John . Jay Knox, formerly Comptroller of the Treasury, it is likely to come from the financial centers of the country. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 2.—Indianapolis friends of President Harrison believe he will call Colonel John C. New home from London and make him Sec- retarj 1 - of the Treasury. It is known among the friends of Mr. New here that he could have, had the Secretaryship of the Treasury when Windom was appointed, but he desired a more remunerative place and asked for and received the appointment of Consul-General to London. It is doubtful if Mr. New would come home to take the Secretaryship if it should be offered to him.

The Supreme Court Decides to Listen to Arguments on the Behrlnj; Sea Controversy ou the Second Monday in April .Next. WASHIS-GTO.V, Fob. 2.—Chief Justice Uuller has announced tliat the Supreme Court had decided to grant the petition of the counsel representing the British Government for the leave to file an application for a writ of prohibition, to prevent the District Court of Alaska proceeding's to carry out its decree of forfeiture, made in the case of the schooner Saward, libelled for unlawfully taking 1 seals within the waters of Behring sea. The court asked counsel at what date the rule requiring' the Alaska court to come here and show cause why the writ of prohibition should not issue should be made returnable. The Solicitor-General of flic United' States was anxious, to have, it made returnable at the earliest possible date, as was Mr. Caldron Carlisle, junior -counsel lor the parties who bring the Case here, and by mutual agreement the rule was made returnable the second Monday in April. . This settles merely the preliminary question of the right to. bring- the case into court and the matter now to be settled is whether or not the court will decide that the writ of prohibition should issue. There must now be an argument on the merits of the Behring sea controversy. In announcing' the determination of the court the.Chief Justice said that argument had taken a much wider range than was necessary and that the court was of opinion that it had jurisdiction by way of prohibition, under section OSS Revised Statutes, to review the proceeding's of the Alaska court. . .

POKTLAXD, Me., Feb. 2.—During the present week the tenth anniversary oi the foundation of the first Society of Christian Endeavor will be "observed throughout th'e- country wherever a lodge of tliat order has been brought into existence, and there will be special prayers for the extension of the wort 'in all parts of the world, while thank offerings will be given to the missionary boards'of the different denominations to which the societies belong. .

CHICAGO, Feb. 2.—The ways and means committee of the world's fair di- rectoryhas decided to recommend a. call for an additional.35,000,000 to tlie fund, making it 615,000,000 in all. President Harrison Denies That the Red Man Has Been Robbed Under His Administration. AX IXTICHYIEW OX THE SUBJECT. NEW YORK, Feb. 2,—The World prints a special purporting to quote President Harrison in. an interview relative to the alleged wrongs upon the Indians. He said: "Some of these" grievances are Teal, S ome are imaginary; some are inevitable consequences cl our form of Government. The -bison and toe elk have vanished from tbe plains and thus the great natural, larder of the Sioux has been emptied, but no legislative act caused or can remedy that. The Indian is naturally improvident; he -will gorge himsel ond his family to-day until his skin nnd their shins are bursting—he will eat ten days' ra tions in one and then complain because : fresh supply is not fortlicoming the instan his appetite beckons. In past years be bas often, no doubt, been robbed by cattle rings by agents and by .traders. The Indian has often received poor clothing and moldy rations. But I do not believe the Indians are robbed to-day. I have no doubt the Indian thinks he is being robbed, because on Saturday he forgets that on tbe previous Mon day he ate his entire week's rations. Also, he does not comprehend why his supplies are cut flown and delayed. That is not my fault nor the fault of the Secretary of the Interior, nor that of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs. The Commissioner promptly reports to the Secretary, who at once forwards the report to me, ond I recommend to Congress that the appro prlation be promptly passed in lull. There my power and uiy responsibility and that of the Indian Department end, and the delay be gins. Congress does the cutting down of which tbe Indian complains, and the wisdom or. folly of this is beyond my control. I do know, however, that the moment Congress appropriates the money, however much or little, every dollar of it is' at once applied to the Indians' wants, a.nd the entire machinery of the Indian Deportment is pnt in swift motion to get the supplies out as soon as possible. "I am entirely satisfied with the present administration of Indian affairs, It is thoroughly honest and intelligent, and no complaint has been given against it daring the last two years that has not at once received prompt attention and the cause removed. "There are many conflicting stories of the cause of the present outbreak. They are being examined, into. The chief trouble is a longstanding and constantly growing internal dissension among various factions of the Sioux nation. I shall talk -with this Sioux delegation If they desire a council; shall give them a. full hearing, a nd if any wrongs are presented they will be met promptly and thoroughly. I believe, however, that the main'-grievancois beyond my control—the tardiness with which Congress has ratified the agreement .made with them by the Sioux commission two .years ago, and the cutting down of the appropriation recommended for the current year. That they have been robbed by agents during my administration I know personally is not true. That matter has been thoroughly sifted and the charge found wanting!" JFonr Burne'd to Death.
