Fifteen Thousand Worki-rs in Class to Jlf- S"in IJusim'Srt in Three iVeeks. Pittsbuvg, Dec. 20.—Window glass factories throughout the United States- will , be able to resume work just as soon as they can get the furnaces hot enough to begin work. This\will be in about three weeks, and mea.V, u-ork fo; 1 about 15,000 men. Last night telegrams were sent to the managers of every window glass plant in the country to start the fires at once, as a settlement of the wage question, which has been so long; in dispute, had been reached. The workers will resume at an ad- rance which is not as larse as was expected, and for which such a strong contention was made. One week ago a settlement was reached by the blowers and gatherers. The cutters and (Jatteners, who have (seceded from the Window Glass Workers association, were not satisfied with, the rate offered and held out until late Saturday evening, when ;:he manufacturers offered the cutter:; 13 and the flatteners 15 per cent, raise over last year. Heretofore the flatteners have In addition been paid 25 per cent, of the gross earnings of the blowers. This feature was the hardest pill for the flattener? to swallow, but they finally concluded to accept the offer, thus end- Ing a protracted and expensive lockout. Another Luetgert Juror Suxpectea. Chicago, Dec. 20.—Another juror in the Luetgert case is under investiga- lion by the defense. Rumors were cur- -ent Saturday as to juror's identity, but the attorneys refused to confirm or 3eny any of them. It was admitted, lowever, that there is some.ground for suspicion that one juror expressed vio- enc opinions relative to the merits of :he case before he was summoned, and that affidavits similar to. those which ed to the dismissal of Hoffman and Boasbenr are likely to be obtained. .Murderer Merry at Chicago. Chicago. Dec. 20.—Chris Merry.charged ;vith the murder of his wife, and James Smith, his alk-ged accomplice, arrived .n Chicago yesterday from Princeton, iCy., where they werearrested. Bothmen .vere laterconfronted by Joseph Hickey, upon whose confession they were ar- -ested. but t!-ey stoutly denied any knowledge of Mrs. Merry's death, and .vere finally placed in jail, pending elimination. l*re»ent Congress Much More Likely to Issue >Iore Greenbacks Than to Retire What There Is, and to Order the Payment of Bonds in "Silver or Gold" and Command the President to Prefer Silver, He Says—A Prediction. Washington, Dec. 20.—Senator Chan- filer has written a letter to the Washington Post in which he says: "If the secretary of the treasury and his single gold standard associates will cease their demand for impossible currency legis- ation congress will pass the necessary appropriation bills, probably take care of Hawaii and Cuba, there will not be a serious party division during the session, ai;c! there will be an adjournment n May. Business will revive, the treasury receipts will ecual the expenditures, he balance of trade wil continue in our avor, and the Reupblican party will be s'ovember, 1SDS, elect a majority of the house in the Fifty-fifth congress. Otherwise There Will Be Trouble. "On the other hand, if Secretary Gagre continues to press upon congress a bill the object of which he says is 'first to commit the country more thoroughly to the gold standard,' and the immediate effect of which is to throw doubts upon the sincerity of the president's declarations in favor of continued efforts to secure bimetallism, a political turmoil -will arise in congress which will spilt the now united Republicans into fragments, while it wil unite and consolidate the now incongruous opposition. More Instead of No Greenbacks. "It is not feasible to retire the greenbacks; there is more probability that a bill will be sent to the president to increase their amount. It is ont possible to secure the passage through either house of a bill making the greenbacks into sold notes or authorizing bonds payable in gold. The effect to do either thing will probably result in the passage nf a bill for the redemption of ;:he reen backs in silver dollars, and for the payment of all United States bonds in gold or silver coin, in the discretion of the president, who will be commanded to exorcise his option for the advantage of the government and not for the advantage of creditors. Makes Some Dire Predictions. "With such an uproar in congress as these proceedings will create, with western congressmen embroiled therein; with presidential vetoes, as threatened by Secretary Gage, under angry discussion, it. •Ptitu. happen that ail business enterprises and funds and stocks will be disturbed, prices will fall, insolvencies will increase, and the Republicans will lose the congressional elections in 1S9S as disastrously as they did in 1890, and beyond the hope of a favorable reaction in 1900 at which time, therefore, a Bryan Democratic president and congress will be chosen. Says It Is Time to Keep Still. "Whether, we are to have one of these results—political safety, or the other- political destruction—depends entirely upon the course to be pursued by Secretary Gage and those who are pressing him forward, namely, the Gold Standard League of New York and the self- constituted National Monetary Conference. How much Secretary Gage cares for the Republican party is not known. Whether President McKinley, whose good faith toward bimetallism is coming to the test, will stop his secretary in his insane career is not known. It is to be hoped he will. But no political situation has been clearer than the present to sound eyes since the Republican party bagan its marvelous career forty- two years ago. There are times for all things. There is a time to move and a time to keep still, and now is the time lo so keep." investigation as he'would make would cost the government about $20.000. Some Official Christina* Gift*.

Washington, Dec. 20.—F. M. Gideon, ifhe clerk of the general land office who was referred to by Thomas Reddington ;n his testimony before the senate Pacific railroad committee Saturday ai having- changed the land office records so as to throw 5,000,000 acres of government land to the Southern Pacific railroad, has made a clear denial of the rbarge. Gideon is a resident of Washington,, and at his home, 1734 Fifteenth street, made the following statement: "The story told by Mr. Reddington is absurd, ridiculous and unqualifiedly false and without foundation or color of truth. The records of the land office will vindicate me, but I will insist upon the most thorough investigation, and stand ready at all times to answer any ind all questions so far as my connection with the Southern Pacific lands or my connection with the land office are concerned. I court the fullest inquiry into the matter." Gideon was appointed to the land office from Kokomo, iDd., in 1SS3 and was in charge of the di- rision of nd;ustji:ent of land grants. Upon leaving: the land office he was employed by the Southern Pacific as an attorney before the intertordepartment, remaining in its employ until December, . Reddingrton's charge was that * clerk in the general land office named ideon had in 1S92 taken the office records to his apartments and kept them for two days, changing them so as to insure an increase of several million acres in the land grants. After this transaction Gideon had resigned, and the witness could not say what lad become of him. He said that $53,000 had been paid for the change of the records. Reddington -was unable to give the committee the residences of witnesses, but hi> said that if placed in charge of th« investigation he could get the (acts.

Mrs. Hesing at the time was out shopping. A few minutes after 4 tl^e servant grirl went to Hesing's room on an errand. When she entered he was breathing heavily apparently asleep, and the girl went out as softly as possible, in order to avoid rousing him. From that time until 5 o'clock when Mrs. Hesing returned, he was alone in the room. His wife noticed at once upon entering the room that he was very ill, and quickly summoned assistance, but by the time medical aid was at hand Hesing- was dead. The physicians declared that he had died of hesrt disease, and said that in all probability they could not have saved him had they reached him before life was extinct. Washington Hesing was an Ohioan; •seas born at Cincinnati. May. 14, 1S49. He was the son of Anton C. Hesingr and Louise L. Hesing. Up to 1861 young Hesing attended the city schools at Chicago, his father having removed to this city in 1S54. In 1866 he entered Yale and was graduated with a degree. The year following his graduation he entered the University of Berlin on a special course. In 1S72 he began active work on The Staats Zeitung, of which his father was proprietor, and in a. few years became the managing editor of the paper. From the time of his connection with the paper Hesing- took an active interest in politics, and was a Republican until about 1880, when he became a Democrat, tried twice to reach the Chicago mayoralty and failed and was postmaster of the city from 1S94 to 1S97.
