CLEVELAND SICNS THE BILL.
The Territorial statehood Measure
Becomes a Law.
A Great Day for Sam Randall.
"Washington, D. C. Feb. 22. There
seems to be a luck of organization at the
white house. A commitee of Dakota
people called on the president jesterday
and asked him to celebrate Washington's
birthday by siguing the territorial ad mis
sion bill. At the same time they pre
sented him with a handful of feathers
plucked from a Dakota eagle from which
to make a pen to use for the purpose.
This morning ut 10 o'clock a reporter of
the associated press called at the white
house to inquire when the ceremony was
to take place, and was told by Colonel
Lamont that the president would not be
a party to any such circus; that he would
take time to study the admission bill and
would doubtless think it necessary to
refer it to the attorney general for
examination before giving it his approval.
At exactly 11 o'clock, with a pen made
from one of the tngle feathers, the presi
dent attached hid name t- the bill, and
sent the quill as a memento to represen
tative Springer, who will pass it down to
his posterity as an heirloom.
A GREAT DAT FOR RANDALL.
Congress did not adjourn in honor of
Washington's birthday as it usually has
done, but celebrated the anniversary by
restoring Randall to leadership in the
democratic party and by passing bills for
the relief of Sirs. General Sheridan and
General Rosecrans. It was a great day
iu the career of Samuel Jackson Randall.
It might ba called an epoch. It was
just about a year ago now that the dem
ocrats of Pennsylvania read Mr. Randall
out of the party, but he took the sceptre
again today, and from this time on will
be the leader he was before the president's
free trade message was sent to congress.
The caucus last night showed that the
democratic party was hopelessly broken
and that the division was so great as to
virtually depose Mr. Mills from leader
ship and restore Mr. Randall to that posi
tion. The number of men who supported
Rindall caused considerable surprise,
and Lis position aud program received
endorsement from unexpected sources.
Ho found followers in Kentucky and
other 6ttes where it was supposed the
tariff reform sentiment was unaniinoU3,
and it is conceded that now the bars are
downj the members from the southern
states will rush oyer into the Randall
pasture in great numbers.
MORROW ON TUE CABINET.
Representative Morrow, of California,
who retuned last night from Indianapolis
s ivs he does not know any more about,
the cabinet than he did before he left
Washington. lie does not speak with
authority, but he thinks only four mem
Iwrs of the cabinet are absolutely settled
on. These are Blaine' Wiiido,nj Wan.na
maker and Me. Th remaining places
he thinks will not be filled unlil after
the arrival of G -u r.d Harris-m in Wash
ington and consultation with the leading
republicans at the capitol. lie thinks
the Pacific coast wij hayu a represent

vvant any political significance about it.
When I went up to General Harrison's
house I was hungry, tired and cross. The
general gave me a tiptop d nner, oqe of
tLe best I ever had, chicken pie and beef
steak, and I was as comfortable as a king
when I left him. Jt was not what he
saiil to me, but what he gaye me to eat
that made me so cheerful.
THE RANDALL RESOLUTION.
When the Randall resolution is taken
up, Mr. Mills will resort to the desperate
remedy of filibusterting. and he will have
s sufficient force at his back to prevent
its adoption. But the size of Mr. Ran
dall's victory will not be reduced, l?y any
such methods. Mr. Mills will simply
6uow the weakness of his positi-.m aud
demonstrate thelossof hisinfluence in the
house by resorting to such niiasur.'S.
NEWS FROM STANLEY.
Return of Lieutenant Baert Prom
Brussels, Feb. 22. Lieutenant Bvert,
who was sent to Stanley Falls when Stan
ley's letter to Tippoo Tib was delivered,
has m-iived here. He states that the
o " " j -j-. ; - j
they confirmed the details of the letter.
Lieutenant Baert believes that Stanley J
onley rrached Wadelai by strenuous ef- '
forts, and that Emm Pasha relieved. Stan
ley instead of being relieved and tevic
tualed by him. Stanley was nabled to
return to Murenia in eighty-two days,
whereas the journey from Yambuga to
Wadelai occupied ten months. Baert
adds that the first letters from Stanley
for England written when Stanley de
parted from Maurenia to rejoin Emin, ar
rived at Stanley Falls just as he left, and
may be expected shortly. lie says that
Stanley will not return cither by the Con
go or by Zanzibar, but that he expects to
capture Khartoum and wrest the Soudan
from the Mahdi. Baert expresses confi
dence in Tippoo Tib's fidelity, and says
that Tippoo's refusal to accompany Stan
ley was due to his fears of risking the
consequences of a prolonged abscence
from Stanley Falls.
Railroad Tunnel on Fire.
Cincinnati, Feb. 22.- TuDnel No. 17
on the Cincinnati Southern road, near
Suuburt, Tenn., is burning. The fire was
caused by a freight train collision, by
which a tank containing 2,000 gallons of
oil was broken and set afire, the limestone,
coal and woodwork inside the tunnel
combining with the flames to make the
tunnel a wreck. Nearly all hopes are
lost of subduing the flames, for it is
evident that two veins of coal are burn
ing and may continue to do so for months.
Both ends of the tunnel have been dam
med up and a stream of water has been
turned inside. The loss is put at $250,
000 and may go higher.
Perquisites at the Austrian Court.
Nothing except the linen, plate, china
and glass is ever served twico at the
tables of tho Austrian court. Some of
the servants have as their perquisites the
bottles which have come up to the dining
room but have not been uncorked; others
tho uncorked bottles, and others again
the wine that remains in the glasses.
Therefore it is the interest of one set of
servants to keep the glasses full; of
another set to draw as many corks as
H)saibk while parting with as. little wine
as they can. and of a third set to draw
-corks RTKtringly. As regards the- food,
too. there- are different orders of claim
ants for prnjtiisitcs. one man having a
vested interest in the joint;, another in

What Saves tho White Rats A CltUen
Who Wasn't Sure About III VUlon, and
lie Went to the Doctor.
A citizen who had lost his reckoning
and who was pursuing a tortuous course
along Mulberry street very early in the
morning chanced to look down into the
basement office of anoctural worker near
police headquarters. He seemed to be
somewhat alarmed by what he saw. A
frolicsome kitten was apparently giving
boxing lessons to a score of big and little
white rats on the top of a coverless pine
table. The rats took the cuffing of tho
kitten very amiably, and came up for
more as i " they rather enjoyed it. Tlio
convivial citizen grasjxnl the iron rail
ing in frontof the ba:;; :ac:u convulsively,
and, with an intensity of purpose that
was evident from the corrugations on his
forehead, sought to convince himself, by
harder gazing, that ho was the victim of
an optical delusion.
A young man of serious aspect came
out of an office next door and saw the
befuddled stranger peering into the base
ment. The stranger also observed the
young man, whoso guileless expression
cave no indication of the gay deceit
lurking in his soul.
" 'Scuse me," said the stranger, "but

lie had seen, as anybody may who
passes the basement, just what tho face
tious young man led him to believe he
had not seen. . If he had been 6ober and
had gone into the basement and had a
talk with tho owner of the rats, Mr.
Frank Hastings, he might have heard
some interesting things about them. Mr.
Hastings lias bred over a hundred of
them. Only one developed a vicious
spirit. It bit its owner whenever he put
his hand near it, and, fearing its exam
ple of ferocity might be imitated by the
rest of the 6nqwy colony, Mr. Hastings
decided to give it to the giant torn cat of
his guileless next door neighbor. This
cat had often looked through the base
ment window, devouring (he rats with
his eyes and apparently longing to make
a move substantial meal of them. The
wicked rat was taken next door and put
down in front of tho tabby, who sur
prised the onlookers by backing away
from the trembling little creature, which
made no effort to get out of the way.
Tom surveyed it a few moments and
cautiously approach and sniffed around it.

TIUS LION AND THE LASJCS,
Tlio peaceful disposition of the cats to
ward tlG bad white rat suggested to Mr.
Hastings the idea of getting a kitten for
them. It is a fc-iualj kitten, and vaa
presented to Jlr. ILting3 by Baker John
Brandemoor, around in Houston street.
It i: just about twice a3 big as the old
blind grandmother of the rats, but its
spirit is colossa and fierco . enough to
throb against the riba of a Sullivan.
Probably this is due to the diet of mince
pie it reveled in when with the baker.
It does not display it3 ferocity unless a
strange dog happens to come jnta the of
fice. Then it drives fill tho rats, except
tho old blnd grandmother, who will not
bo driven, into tho box, and marches to
and fro, with its back arched and tail
erect, sputtering and growling at the in
truder. If the kitten could talk on these
occasions, Mr. Hastings has no doubt
that it might say to the big dogs:
"I'm the guardian of (his household,
and you, can cross Its threshold only over
my dead body 1 Spitl-BpatP
There is one cannibal among the. rats
It is a female, with a bln.ck; epot on its
