WAPIIISOTOX , Dec1. 2. ( Special TcloKi'iim
to tlio HER. ] In conversation with your cor-
rpspomlunt to-day , Hon. Thomas It , Hoed , of
Maine , Hiilil ! "I have no dcslro lo express
. any opinion nt to the proposition on legisla
tion thl * winter In rcxuid to the surplus.
1'robnbly I can BCO very tittle farther Into
tlic millstone than you ran. It would bo n
fjood tiling , however , If tlio people of the
Uhltrd States could neothc rent dinieultlcs
that mo to bo met. uiiilorttandliiK
of the situation could be luid It would
go far to Irisuro reasonable treatment of con-
preaslonal action. Kvnr.vbotly agreei that n
BUrplus of not far from 4.11)0,00(1,000 ) ( Is uimn
us and ought to bo reduced. Hut when It
nomosto the question of lioxv to do It , the
trouble begins. At the very outset the party
condition ! * uro very htr.inpc and ominous.
The rcs | > onslbllty ! is , rtf course , on the patty
in power. The democrats have at
least ten majority , and perhaps fif
teen , Hut they arc divided be
tween democrats Inclined to free trade
and democratH Inclined to protection , the free
traders bohitf In a large majority. In caucus ,
Mr. Carlisle will bo nominated. If elected
ho will appoint a committee on w.iy.s and
fiioans from his wing of the party , which will
net precisely as his other ways and means
committees have done ; that Is to say , pro
duce a bill which has only a minority hack of
It , a hill which cannot pass. On the other
hand , the majority of the house
which could pats a bill , not having
the committee of ways and meaim , can not
produce n hill. This Is a parliamentary dif-
llculty arising out of the division In the demo
cratic party.
"Hut there arc intrinsic difficulties besides.
The first man I meet says : 'Keducc the suj'ar
duty. ' That loolis very simple. Hut in IbSU
that was tried andtho wholodemocmticparty
voted apnlnst it.Vhyi The was
that it was u revenue duty. The reason was
that Louisiana WHS a democratic state. There
nro also many protectionists who would vote
to . retain the full sugar duty from
u sincere belief Justified by recent discoveries
that wo are on the verge of producing from
Horgum and other souices all the sugar the
country can consume. You will remember
that the administration In mote than one
treasury utterance has demanded the reten-
ffir tlon of the sugar duty.
r "Tho next scheme Is to reduce protective
duties. Hut would that reduce the surplus ]
What makes up u customs revenue ?
The amount of articles Imported
multiplied by the duty. If you
reduce the "duty you reduce the multiplier ,
whivh would bo all right if you did not In
crease the multiplicand. Hut when you re
duce ' the duty you necessarily Increase the
amount Imported. Indeed that must be your
very object. Why reduce duties if you don't
want more foreign goods ! Hut we are not
left to conjettuio as to results. A
Binalt example will make this plain.
Uy an interpretation of the law
of 1&53 worsted goods duties have been re
duced. With what result ! Why , the reve
nue has doubled. If wo do the same with
Dther articles wo shall have more .surplus
rather than less. What effect such changes
tvould have on the business of the country
just at this moment I leave business men to
: onjecturo and to decide. Another i reposi
tion is to take the reduction from
llio internal revenue. There Is a
rcry wide agreement * as to the
tobacco tax and if the speaker would allow a
promsition | to take that fc'Hl.OOlMHK ) off it
Would easily pass. Hut ho probably Intends
to use it as a weapon to attack protection
Under the guise of reduction of the surplus.
1'ho whole internal revenue tax. is about
"When you como to the question of reduc
tion of the ruvonuo by taking oil the whisky
tux , ono man thinks that It has the advantage
f abolishing many offices , leaving the trade of
Iho country undisturbed , and Miss Willard
representing the Woman's Christian Temper-
unco union , believes that it will release the
government from u participation in the pro-
Ills of a manufacture which no government
ought to countenance. On the other hand ,
that tax Is defended as one easily collected
hid | much tulk is made about leaving off the
tax.on liquor and putting it in clothes. Tlio
nianufactuniiH also of whisky desire the
tax continued , because it enables those of
large 'capital to absorb the business. Tlio ex
pedient of creating n free list with coal , wool ,
suit , lumber , Iroii , ere and fish thereon is , of
iourse , only Hacking protection in detail.
You can see by this slight enumeration what
thodifllc-ultle.s are. If there was a sincijra
jingle desire to reduce the surplus , which is
ivhnt the country really wants , there would
ho but little Uifnvulty , but so
many men want to use the reduction of the
surplus , which everybody agrees to , as n
lover to do something which only u free trade
minority wants to do , that the people of tlw
country nro llablo to bo deceived unless thc > j
kooiVthoir eyes on the main question , wlitcli
is the reduction of the surplus without dis.
turbaneo of the industry of the country. "

Mr. McShano , who Is accompanied by his

commodious quarters. Congressman Laird

ivlll ho probably several days after the open-
ng of the session before the assignment of
senators to the several committees will be
announced. Senator Mundcrson , at present ,
holds the chairmanship of the committee on
irintlng , which ranks well in the list. Ho is
certain to ho retained unless ho should prefer
some other chairmanship , which is unlikely.
Senator Paddock , on account of his previous
service In the senate , is assured of good as
signments , whllo it is improbable that ho Will
eceive a chairmanship , owing to the rule
iVhlch places him among the new senators.
Ills extensive acquaintance and six years ox-

on several important committees.

Davenport's Great1 Triumph at Lloyd's
Again last evening ws Hoyd's opera house
the scene of a grand convocation of the city's
beauty and fashion. Every scat in the house ,
from gallery to panjuotto , was occupied nnd
the enthusiastic plaudits which greeted Miss
Davenport at each thriljlng crisin in the ca
reer of "Fedora" exceeded oven these of the
oitcning night. It would be folly to endeavor
to say anything additional to Miss Daven
port's credit In this her greatest role , so in
continently has she conquered criticism. Her
conception of the swiftly varying passion
now us placid as a midsummer stream flow
ing through the shadowy woods ; ho winning ,
so gentle , so lovely , and now as fierce and
hideous us a tigress in defense of her young ,
is something that defies description. So
human and intense uro her portrayals of all
the emotions that rent the heart of the ill-
starred Hussiun princess that they are shared
by each one in the audience and the great ac
tress' triumph is perfect. . As on the previous
evening the entire cast admitted themselves
witli striking effect , and itwouldboinviduons
to particuluri/o without giving each his and
her full measure , McDowell improved in
some small particulars , as Loris , whllo Cow-
per , Hurley , Hayes and Horoldo were all that
could bo desired. The audience at the close

ciferous cheers.

cil HluiTft by Mr. Clayton A. Clark and Henry
Knight , of Ogalullu , Neb. Then the quar
tette came to Omaha and the young Indies
were taken to the Puxton where they wer
immediately deserted by the gentlemen who
made a bco line lor the t-ounty court where
licenses to wed were issued to them , At high
noon the four were married by llov. W. J.
Harsha at his residence.
There is quite a pretty little romance con
nected with this double wedding. Hoth of
the grooms are from the Green Mountain
state and are now prominent young business
men of Ogalulhi , to which city they came
about eight years ago. In the sumo village
where their childhood days were spent there
lived the two young ladies who are now : iidr-
ried to them. They were ml very young
when the L'oyo struck out west to make their
I jortuues , but through ull their struggles the
memory of their childish sweethearts has
been kept fresh and green. Dame fortune
dealt kindly with tlio two boys and the loiters
between them and their Hweothcaits were
full of love nnd conslaney. So ut lust
when the boys had gained fame and forluno
they urged an immediate marriage , but tlio
"old folks at homo" objected. Finally the
importunities of the two lovers won the day
and the girls , even as Uuth did , allowed that
they would follow their lovers. So their
love for the gallant youths of Ogalulla was
stronger Ihan parental power , and resulted
in the long journey and happy culmination ,
