Court Funds Kxliauntocl
WAMiiNdTON , Doc. HI. [ Special Telegram
to the Hr.K. ] When tlio house committee on
appropriations is appointed , the llrst thing
that will bo brought to Its attention will bo
the necessity for nn urgent deficiency bill to
prevent the closing of n number of United
States courts. Nearly all of these courts ,
owing totho exhaustion of money appropri
ated for Jurors' and witness" fees for the last
llscal year , wore compelled to close three
months bo fora the new appropriation became
available , which was on the 1st of last July.
Tliis threw a great deal of accumulated
business onto the present llscal year and hni
made , together with ordinary business , .such
aiiiiiiroad into thu present appropriation that
It is pretty well exhausted. Unless something
bo done before February the country will
again suffer from the closing of the courts.
Thuso fact.s will bo submitted to the appro-
pi i.ition committee by Attorney General Oar-
land us soon as it gets to work.

[ Copi/r/M ( ( / 1SS71 > H Jainct flnnlnn lltnnelt. ]
LONDON' , Dee. 13. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the BIK. : ] The extraor
dinary letter from Dr. Parker , published by
the Herald has , for the moment , thrown
more important matters into the shade.
Gladstone sometimes has made himself
rather cheap , especially of late , but it Is not
generally known that his friends had the
privilege of farming him out whenever they
worn short of funds. ' Perhaps ho would prefer -
for to have some cholco In regard to the
tlmo und place of exhibition , the
settlement of terms ' and the
distribution of prollts. Parker
undertakes to nianago all this part of thu
business , but wlic.ii ho returns ho will find
the sago of Hawarden 'quite ready to bo
hawked round for sale like u quaclr pill.
Parker has got himself into a pretty mess ,
As ho has preached In America , It Is un
necessary to s.iy what style of a man ho is.
Ho goes in for salvation at any price. I
passed his tabernaelo on Temple street und
saw an Immense crowd sround the doors. I
asked a Parkurito what was the matter. He
said a woman was going to preach. "And
Parker too I" I asked. The Parkurito groaned
and declined to answer.
Tliis stimulating diet is served regularly at
the temple on Holborn viaduct. But what
-will the faithful say now that tholr high
priest has been rejected I Brooklyn had his
lectures laughed at and now ho has tried to
sell the grand old man. Dr. Parker used to
pray a great deal for Gladstone's health nnd
long IIfo. Wo now begin to fear that these
gopd wishes wcro prompted by regard for
No. 1. A statesman who can bo hired out
for interviews , like n perambulating Juror ,
may bo made almost us good as nn annuity to
n smart manager and poor Gla'dstone
thought Parker loved him for his own
sake. However old a man may be ,
ho always has something new to learn beside
human nature. When Gladstone set up lately
In the timber trade all moneys were remitted
straight to Hawardon. Souvenirs frcm the
felled trees are still on sale at Cd and up
wards. The business Is strictly in the hands
of a llrm. No interloper is allowed to touch
It. Young Herbert takes the money and
sends off the goods Vith the usual circular ,
"hoping to merit your continued support. "
Herbert will' call upon Parker as
soon as the latter arrives. Ho will
want to have the now hiring out
game properly explained to him. Great in
dignation is cxuressed in the Gladstonlan
circle. He always has been careless about
the people ho too ! : Up with. A friend of the
great man has Just been explaining to mo that
anybody who lettered him could persuade
: iim into anything , but ho will not bo per-
.uaded . to pour out six columns of talk on
( Vmerica to nil n paper's pockets. He may ,
it times , bo duped , but ho knows
now to resent an affront. Parker's
inly chance is to explain his letter away on
rue Gladstonlan principles. Faillng > that il
may require morc'than ono wesian's , preach-
ng to draw a crowd back to the temple. The
Parkeritcs uro all agitated. So is a imicli
nore important body of extreme Protestant ?
f every denomination.
The Duke of Norfolk has gene to Rome ns t
special envoy from the queen and a.thousatu
onjectures as to his errand fill the air. Sonu
of the papers try to make out thai
ho queen is merely sending a trivial mes
iiigo in reply to the pope's Jubilee gift. Bui
assuredly tliero is something more than thai
n the trulh. , I bellovo it to bo that the goy
eminent intends to resume the firmer diplo
malic relation ! * with tlio Vatican ro
gar.llcss of the popular prejudice whicl
, till exists on the subject. It wil
bo remembered that Gladstone sent ai
envoy to the pope , though it was denied tha
ho had any oflleial authority. Afterwards i
came out that ho held diplomatic intercourse
with the papacy und that his expenses wen
[ > ald like thosn of any minister. Salisbury
no doubt , intends to counteract the singula
mission to Ireland of Monsignor Porscowhc !
has-naturally fallen much unflertholnfluonci
of the homo rule party. If the pope can to
brought to Issue n prouunciamcnto to favo
homo rule , a largo party of the Irish clerg ;
would be greatly pleased as well a
strengthened. It is hoped tha
M. Persico * will sucqecd in call
ing forth some such document
The government wish to bring inllucnccs ti
bear jipon tlio other side , therefore n propos
tion will bo nmdo for the dispatch of a p&pa
envoy to St. James , whi'.q the Duke of Noi
folkmay for a tlmo consent to remain Ei
glish minister at the Vatican. This woul
bo vary satisfactory to the pope , who ha
long and earnestly desired the restoration o
a formal oflleial relationship with the BritU
government. Hepcated overtures ha
been made towards that end , but til
now none have been well rccelvpi
When , however , it was seen thu
Monsignor Persico had been sent oftlclall ,
to Ireland , and that ho was returning wit
the obvious intention of procuring the pup ;
benediction on the homo rule movement , 1
was thought to bo high time to make nn ai
sworlng move , Salisbury in this affair ha
once more shown great sublcty and insiglil
Ho silently watched all thai had gonqon , an
Just as his adversary appeared to have wo
the game ho touched ono pioc
and cried "Chcckmato. " There can h
llttlo doubt that the prevent arrangement wi
bo successful. The Ouko of Nprfolk will h
eminently welcome at thoVatican. . H
represents nn ancient family which1 mad
great sacrifices for the church and suffure
much on Its account , including entire cxch
slou from political life for many generation !
The present duke's domestic aftlctiot
have drawn him the sympathy i
the whulo nation. This cou
must bo regarded ns one of Salisbury's mo
torpicws , and though Exeter hall may otu
more ralso its bray , I bellove the people goi
crully will approvn what Is Jielng done an
that the Vatican will again bo represented u
the English court , and that Mousignor PC
slco's litllo intrlguo with the ultra hou
iiilers will crumble to pieces.

hat thcyAvoro welcome here. We could no
.to without them. Their business was no
itily honorably ; it was also absolutely ncc
jssary for life. It began as early as tin
history of man. Two of the articles madi

J. Dlxon Avcry , of Fremont , who was tt
reply to the address by Mayor Hroatch , wiv
delayed by the lateness of the Northern Pa
clllc train. He , however , made i
few remarks of a praotlcal nature
which were appreciated by the audience. Th
association he said was not a mutual ad
miration society. At its meetings , ho wai
satisfied , would be given expression to th' '
jest thoughts on dairying by the best peopli
_ n the business , nnd before the close of tin
session ho expected to listen to dairyniei
from Iowa , Dakota and 'Wisconsin as regard
the best manner of handling milk. Nobrask

A Civil Service Si-ran.
WASHINGTON , Deo. 13. [ Special Telegram
to the Bcr. . ] Civil Service Commissioner
Oborly has got himself In trouble again. It
seems that the civil service commissioner U
very desirous for the promotion of n certain
female clerk , although an Interview with him
was published In which ho said thai all lady
clerks should bo dismissed from llio nervlc'o
because they are unlit to hold positions. Tim
particular female clerk in question passed u
limited examination nnd finally a general ox-
animation to get into the department service.
She has done so and twice the commissioner ,
It is said , tried to get her promoted and
failtxl. Ho made the third attempt the other
day in the treasury and f mm tills attempt has
arisen all the fuss and has caused the present
commotion which Is now ngltatlng tlio treas.
ury department. Thu commissioner and ho
is ono of tlic two democrallo commissioners-
went to Hie chief of llio division where ha
wanted the cleric promoted and demanded
to know in rather strong language why thu
promotion ho had asked for had not been
mado. The chief looked at him In surprise
and the commissioner continued and Inti
mated that ho wanted the promotion made
at once.
This fired the blood of the chief and ho re
torted : "I want you to understand , sir , that
1 run my own division and do not want the
Interference of a civil service commissioner. "
Tills lingered the smooth-faced commis
sioner and the blood rushed lo his cheeks and
In an exciled manner demanded in n voice
loud enough to bo hoard by many clerks in
the room and even in the corridors that tlio
promotion bo made. Tlio scene and the excited -
cited manner of the civil St. rvico commissioner
caused a sensation.
Tlio chief only replied ! "Do you know , Mr.
Commissioner , that you are breaking your
own law. Go back to your ottlco and road
regulation No. 10. I will conduct the busi
ness of my own division. Good tiny. "
The commissioner left In a fury.
Civil service regulation No. 10 reads i
"Neither the commissioners nur any exam
iner or other persons serving under them
fcliall attempt to control or inlliieneo in uuy
way or in any manner appointments , remov
als or promotions. "
The other civil service reform commission-
era are much CAorcisod over llio comlucl o !
their colleague , and as Iho fact of llio scone
lie made in Ihc treasury has been brought to
their attention , developments are watched
with interest. The clerks in the treasury are
indignant at the commissioner's attempt to
influence a promotion for a now female chirk
over their heads when they have worked lusr.l
and deserve the fruiis uf tnclr labor by pro
motion themselves when a vacancy occurs.

delegation of tlm Omaha freight bureau before -
fore the inter-slate cotninorcu commission , in
which they claim protection as against Chicago
cage in the discriminating rates shown by
existing freight Uiriifs , have become of na
tional Importance. The demand of the dele
gation for ovcnhanded Justice under the third
' section of the law has aroused tlio commission
to the gravity and deep importance of the
subject , and in view of llio fact that one nt
least of the Chicago roads has asked for a
postponement on thu ground of inability tfl
present witnesses before the 'JQth prox. , it
will in all probability Induce the commission
to hold a session in Omaha in the near future ,
when the argument will b < - heard. Tlio dele
gation are confident of ultimata success and
believe the commission will give their de
cision spccdily-iind - grant them all they claim.
A date for tlio hearing in Omaha will bo de
termined upon shortly.
