CONGRESS WILL GO TO WORK AGAIN ON MONDAY. Polities to be Throw Aside said Business , Attended to Much Speculation WaihluKton Begardlna; the Next Cab- " 1 net Mr. Blaine, WU1 Probably Not be Offered the State Portfolio. Washington, Nov. 80. Congress reconvenes on Monday t and (rem a business view point tha short session is likely to be more important to the general progress and material interests of the country than waa the unprecedented long session which adjourned in October. Politics are likely to be rele gated to the rear, and the business interests of the people brought to the front There is erery reason why measures of national Im portance, free from partisan or sectional prejudices, should receive the prompt and patriotic consideration of congress in the spirit of promoting the general welfare of the people and advancing publio prosperity. There are many measures of such general character already favorably reported from committees which failed to become laws by reason of the pending tariff bills absorbing the time and attention of congress to the exclusion of all other legislation. There is little probability of tariff discussion interfering with other legislation during the closing i gion of the Fiftieth congress. Owing to the approaching inaugural but little is heard about the convening of con gress, and while tha change of administration is more than three months away the probabilities and possibilities are being con' stantly discussed among the politicians. xne personnel 01 tne next cabinet is tne all- absorbing topic, but as the president-elect has kept his own council in the matter the greater part of the gossip on the subject ia of but little value. It is assuredly believed In Washington that Mr. Blaine will not be invited to accept the portfolio aof the department of state, but that Senator Sherman will receive such an invitation and the indications at this time seem to be that he will accept. An intimate friend of Gen. Harrison says that the statement could be made positive that Mr. Blaine's name had not been seriously considered in connection with the department of state all rumors to the contrary notwithstanding, i- Should Mr. Sherman enter the cabinet the present situation In Ohio warrants the assumption by politicians that Maj. McKinlaV would be selected as speaker of the bouse and that his colleague, Mat Ben Hutterworth would succeed Mr. Sher man in the senate. . - . ; Indications paint strongly to an extra s slon of the Fifty-first congress. It is known that Bepublican leaders will urge the calling of an extra session, with a view to the ad mission of the several territories to statehood. Mr. Springer will make an effort to have the pending territorial measures re-1 ported by his committee and acted on during the coming session; but while he declares that "it must be done," it is not thought probable that he will meet with success. Washington, SO. As usual on Thanksgiv ing Day the departments were all closed yesterday. In fact most of them closed at 1 or t o'clock on Wednesday In honor of the an niud fesUval...TLj was an air of Sunday quiet -about the streets early in the day which was broken about 10 o'clock by the sound of drum and trumpet as the local militia turned out for parade. The first regiment formed on Fifteenth street just south of Pennsylvania avenue and the second regiment and a battalion of Sixth and Seventh regiments drilled on Seventeenth street near New York avenue. It was at first Intended to drill on the White lot just behind the executive mansion and in full sight of its windows but the condition of the ground would not admit of this. On the White lot, however, in spite of the swampy condition of the grounds, the signal corps practiced signal ing all the morning. At 10 o'clock the entire command marcnea down Pennsylvania avenue to Four-and-half street and countermarching returned along the avenue past the treasury depart ment to the White House, where the parade was reviewed by the president, The churches-were all well attended. Ihe First, Fourth and Central Presbyterian churches held a union service with the Assembly churfh. The president attended service here accompanied by Mrs. Cleveland. The sermon1 was preached by the Bev. A. M. Pitzer. His1 text was from Deuteronomy xxxii; 8: When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance; when He sep arated the ions of Adam He set the bonds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.'' After reviewing the militia parade the president noined his family at Oak View, where a quiet Thanksgiving dinner was eaten. Tte only guest was Mrs. Harmon, a sister of All's.

The statement baa been published that Congressman Matson is believeijto be at the bead of the movement to organize a Democratic Grand Army of the Reiiblio. "I know nothing of it," said he to a eportor, "except what I have read in the p ts, and I am not at the head of any other I rt of the affair. The ether statement ii the dtspach that my friends expect me to i Uow Gen. Palmer's course and withdraw f Dm the Grand Army of the Republic is also ithout foundation.

Representative Thomas of Illinois has Just returned from Indianapolis. When asked what the prospects for President Harrison's cabinet were he said: "I do not speak with authority, but soieiy upon my own responsibility.' I should say that California will be given a member of the cabinet, New England one, New York one, provides: tne .New York leaders can come to some substantial' agreement, "What of the South r "Well, I should say the South will prob- auiy oe given a memoer. xae Bouth is go ing to do created fairly. The Bouth will have no reason to complain if they will come up and accept the situation like men and deal frankly, with Gen. Harrison. His letter to a Southern editor, no doubt is a fair expression of his views en the subject I dont think anybody need have any trouble In apprehending the spirit in which that letter was written." Washington, Nov. 80. N. D. Phillips. acting president of the board of health at Gainesville, Fla., telegraphs Surgeon General Hamilton as follows: , "Have just returned to city after an at tack of fever. Inform me what course you propose as to infected bedulnr and clothing, Impracticable to destroy without replacing at once, as people are entirely destitute and would suffer while waiting payment of vouchers. We regard it as absolutely essen tial that much bedding and clothing among the negroes be burned. We urge that action be taken at ; once, as refugees are likely to give much trouble a longer kept out" Dr. Martin telegraphs from Gainesville "Three new cases (colored) and one' death (white). Refugees returning daily. City authorities make no effort to prevent their doing; so." Another Ballroad Fight. Ftndlat, O., Not. 39. A railroad war b& tween the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton andj,he New York, Mahoning and Western was precipitated by the latter company crossing the tracks of the former with its line of road, despite a desperate fight made by sec tion hands of the Ciaoinnati, Hamilton and Dayton to prevent the trespass, and much bad blood has been,. engendered. The local militia company is patrolling the track to prevent bloodshed. . Civil Service In the Printing- Office. ' Washinoton, Nov. SO. There is considerable speculation about the possibility of the president extending the dasuned civil service on the recommendation of the civil ser vice commissioners so as to make it include the government printing otlce. The print ing office has about 2,000 people in Its em ploy and it is thought that with the exception of the compositors and pressmen ths service of the remainder might be improved by putting them under the civil service rule.

William Campion, a Hoboken tough, has been arrested for the murder of Henora Tiebbe, who was found strangled to death in her bed Tuesday, shortly after Campion had left her apartments.

Two Criminals Released. Boston, Nov. 80.

The Press Make Vague Threats of What Germany Will do If England Befusea , Her Co-operation In the Dark Continent The Sheehy InTcatlaaUon New Notes for the Bank of Ftanoa I London. Nov. 80. Quits sensation has been caused in political circles both hare and an the continent and wide attention attracted generally by a semi-official note published by the Berlin press. The note contains protest against the opposition of England to tha efforts of Germany in Zanzibar. It asserts that anti-German tendencies prevail in England and the co-operation in African schemes that might be given to Germany is, through their influence, denied. "Germany is forced to conclude," says the note, "that England does not need Germany's friendship." Then follows what may be looked on as a warning to the insular power. , ."It is true that it Is improbable that situs, tions may arise in the immediate future in which England may feel the want of friend ship from a continental power. . nut such a condition of affairs is not impossible," The note is but the legitimate outcome of a feeling that has long existed in Germany over the hesitation of English polictians to commit the Britiiih. government to the jdoubtful pol icy of assisting Germany to help herself to whatever benefits the east coast of Africa may present The ostensible object of the desired copartnership is to root out the slave trade and to make East Africa and Zanzibar safe for Europeani. Asa oolonizer and a reclaimer of savage countries England has greater success than Germany and the latter knows this and for this reason longs for Eng land's assistance. But England does not propose to help Germany colonize .Africa and this is why the co-operation is d nied.

THE HAYTIAN REPUBLIC. Brutal Treatment of the Vessel's Crew A Battle Expected. Niw York, Nov. 8ft The steamer Print Frederick, which has arrived here from Port an Prince, had as passengers twenty-four of the officers and crew of the steamer Haytian RepiibUo which was recently seized by the government of HaytL These men complain bitterly of the unnecessarily harsh treatment they received from the guard of seventy black soldiers who were put on board the Haytian Republic after her capture by the Haytian gunboat DessaUnee. The blacks. the American sailors say, behaved like a lot of savages, and many of the steamer's crew bear marks of bayonets on their persons for not having obeyed tome slight order quickly enough. The wife of Capt Compten and her neice, "who were on board the Haytian Republic were not free from the insults of the Haytian soldiers, and were subjected to many indignities during the seven days they were compelled to remain on the vessel. Complaint is also made that the officers of the United States cruiser Boston, which arrived in the harbor during the captivity of the Haytian Republic treated their appeals for assistance s with indifference, and even refused to aid them in making comfortable .one of their number who was suffering from a slight attack of yellow fever. Capt Compton remained at Fort au Prince to look after bis vessel until some disposition Is made of her.

GUNNING FOR TRAMPS. AUoganj Comity, H. V., Militia Go Out on a Fruitless Hunt. . OlJCAif, Nov. 80. The members of the Forty-third Separate company ware greatly surprised late Wednesday night to receive an order to report at the armory armed for service at 5 o'clock yesterday morning. Sev enty-five men assembled at that time and received ten rounds of ball cartridges each and marched to a special train at the Union depot. Capt C. (i. Thyng was in command of the company. For some time past large gang of tramps, numbering from twenty-five to fifty men, desperate and insolent fellows, have congregated in the woods about two miles from town, between here and Allegany. They have committed ail kinds of depredations upon the people in the vicinity, at Allegany, upon the railroad companies, and even here, where many of the late robberies have been traced to them. The sheriff of the county, upon being appealed to, ordered out the militia company to capture the tramps or disperse themr The company and a posse of policemen and constables skirmished through the woods for several miles, but did not capture a tramp.

A 8HIP IN DISTRESS. JFronch Vessel Compelled to Leave ths Crew to Their Fate.'f Philadelphia, Nov. 80. The French steamer Panama, Capt. Chabot, arrived at this port from Garrucha, Spain, with iron ore after a perilous passage of twenty-five days. On Nov. 26 the vessel was within 100 miles of the Delaware capes where she met the cyclone. The seas were mountainous and all efforts to keep the vessel head on were fruitless as the wind threw her around in the trough of the sea. At times she was eomplety enveloped, - At noon that day the carpenter, L. Francois, was swept overboard and drowned. No effort could be made to save the unfortunate man as the changing of the vessel's course in anyway might further endanger the lives of the rest of the crew. At 8 o'clock the same night the signals of a vonnl in distress were seen shooting up from a dark hulk which was nearly level with the water. Capt Chabot bore down on the craft as near as possible, but was unable to get close enough to rescue the men. He could distinctly see them clinging to the - after-house waving lights and hear them begging to be taken off. He believes the vessel to have been a full-rigged ship. She was deeply laden and doubtless foundered with all on board. Academy Notes. "NothlDg Is 80 successful as success.''
