UJGcncral Land Commissioner Stockslagcr's
circular letter to the registers and receivers
of local land offices , requesting them to ex-
crciso uniform courtesy to all who call at
their places of business , and reminding them
that the most lowly citizen has a right to demand -
mand courteous treatment at the hands of all
public officials , has boon the subjectof much
comment to-day among men in congress. It
is stated that the circular was provoked by
the receipt of a largo number of complaints
from districts where there are now officers
who have been proceeding on tlio presump
tion that private citizens have no rights which
n federal official is bound to respect.
In some sections of the west it is almost im
possible for a private citizen to learn any
thing concerning the business being trans
acted In the land offices , and Commissioner
Stockslagor says ho proposes to have the
books opened for the Inspection of all who
have business before thu land offices , and to
compel the officers to bo courteous. The com
missioner In his circular says the instruc
tions ho issues are not to bo thrown into a
pigeon hole , as most circulars from the de
partment are , but that they must ba under
stood and obeyed. This is the first instance
on record wlicro It has bccomo necessary fern
n department to force its officers to bo polito.

Democratic members of the house commit
tee on ways and means and republican mem
bers of tlio senate committee on finance say
congress will not adjourn before the Novem
ber elections , nnd that they will fillibustcr to
defeat it. Tlio republican senators say they
intend to report a tariff bill before congress
adjourns , and that they not propose to bo
cut out it. There Is no doubt that the demo
cratic members of tlio ways and moans com
mittee can defeat the adoption of an niljottrn-
ment resolution , and of course tlio repub
lican members of the senate com
mittee on finance can del cat a
Himilar movement in ttio upper branch
of congress. There is barely a quorum
present in the senate , and probably not a
quorum of the house in the city. Inasmuch
us a quorum will bo demanded for the adop
tion of an adjournment resolution , It seems
juat now that the prospects for terminating
congress within four or live weeks are quite

Speaker and Mrs. Carlisle left in a special
car to-night for their homo in Covington.
The speaker will attend the democratic state
convention of Kentucky on Tuesday and will
deliver several speeches before his return
hero. Chairman Mills has loft the city for
Ills homo in Texas to bo absent about a
month. Mr. Scott , nnd in fact nearly
all of the leading democrats of
the housp , ns well ns tlioso of
the senate , have gone into their states to
work for either their own or their party's
flucccss. Senator Yoorhecs is on the stump
In Indiana and says ho cannot give any moro
attention to congress this session. Alto
gether there appears to bo n good deal of
limitation among the democrats just now , in
dicating that they do not bolievoin the walk
over they profess to havo.
I'liltSOXAL TO THU 1'IlUSinnNT.
The president has been steadily at his desk
during the past week , nnd has attended to a
multitude of matters. The papers of all the
urmy officers who are applicants
for stall appointments in the
army have been sent to him ,
nnd as there are several hundred of thorn , ho
has a big Job on his hands. Liut in thu end
ho will simply pick out the best men who
have served a long time and send their
names to the senato. Tlio publication ot his
letter of acceptance on Monday Jlnst was a
relief to him , as it was the most serious mat
ter on hand nt tlio white house until It was
published. It will not bo surprising if ho
manages to toke n little vacation soon , nnd
Mrs. Cleveland will doubtless go with him.
BI-.NATOH CHANIHXll'S SUCCr.S-iOU.
It is believed hero that Hcprcscntativo
Gallingcr will succeed William E. Chandler
In the senate. CJulliiiKor has been elected
clmlrnian'of tha republican state central com
mittee of New Hampshire , mid is said to
have the lend for the senato. Ho attracted a
great deal of attention hero by conducting
the Investigation Into the mnnnecmont of
the government printing office during the
past spring and summer , and by his work
for the nomination of General Harrison at
Chicago. Senator Chandler remains at his
iiost here while his rival is whooping it up at
01,1) Tr.CUMHKII NOT AVIU11) OV IinATII.
General Sherman does not seem to bo
nppallrd at the thought of dying. At any
rate ho speaks of it sometimes in an off
hand soil of u way that is almost amusing.
'Not long after Sheridan's funeral , in speak
ing of the decease of many prominent offi
cers of thu late war , the general remarked in
his rapid manner : " 1 shall have to hurry up
nnd die pretty soon or there will be nothing
but militia loft to bury r-io. " I am glad to
pay that the general appears to bo good for
nt least ten moro years of life , and perhaps
to survive after every other greatly dis
tinguished persmmge of thu war period shall
have passed away.
A I'OLITICAI , ADVASTVOU.
A rather amusing story connected with the
campaign coined from L'uffnlo. In one of the
biggest wards of that city an onthusiastio
democratic saloonkeeper caused to bo erected
in front of his grocgery a tall , straight ,
smoothly polished hickory polo. To ; the top
of this polo wi-ro attached thrco Cleveland
nnd Thurman streamers. There was n good
deal of jollification as the earth was packed
in solidly around the base of the hickory
stick , and the boys celebrated the affair by
relieving the cellar of the enthusiast of u
great deal of its liquid treasure.
That same nicht a platoon of Harrison
"hustlers" visited the locality nftcr tlio sa
loon was closed , and ono of them , who had
been a sailor on the lakes , shinned up the
polo and to the top of It nailed a long , thin ,
tough spar , on the extreme end of which was
attached a Harrison and Morton streamer as
lonir as the thrco Cleveland flags put to
gether. Then bo started to descend , and ns
ho did so ho carefully greased the hickory
from tlio contents of | u can of pure lard
which ho had strapped around his shoulder.
All attempts to climb that pole since that
time have proved useless , and the proprietor
of tlio saloon , who is roaring mad , Is said to
have offered free whisky during the rest of
the campaign to the man who will remove
the Harrison streamer from above thu Clove-
TUB I'llESIDKNT'S LACK OP CONFIDENCE.
President Cleveland is rapidly losing faith
In the assertions of his subordinates. The
latest ono to convince the president that his
officials nro not absolutely reliable when they
make political promises is that tried , trusted
nnd true patriot , Morton , commissioner ol
navigation , Morton , it will be remembered ,
was the leader of the dirty-work brigade In
Maine In the campaign of l&SI. As u reward
for his services ho was selected ns postmas.
tor for Augusta , but the senate convinced
the president that it would bo useless to try
to force such an appointment on the people
nnd Mr. Morton's name was put down foi
the Important post ot commissioner of navi
Sir Joseph Porter In Gilbert & Sullivan's
Comic operu "Pinafore" gives as advice foi
navy those lines every music lover knows so
"Stick fast to your desks nnd never go to
And you will bo rulers of thcquccn's nnvco. "
Morton did not know a inarlln-spike from
n hawser , and this wan probably why ho was
selected ns chief of the bureau of navigation.
At least this was ono of tlio reasons. An
other one was his supposed pull among the
politicians of Maine. Mr. Morton promised
all sorts of tilings this yo.ir , among others
the defeat of Tom Heed and the reduction of
the republican majority of 1&S1 by at least 50
per cent. In some of fits moxt enthusiastic
moments it is understood that ho oven went
so far as to predict the election of Putnam ,
that great diplomat to whoso mammoth brain
was due in part at least the conception of the
fisheries treaty , to the governorship of tlio
state. Moitou tried to fulfill his promise. He
worked far more faithfully In thu Interest of
the democracy in Maine than ho did in the
interest of the people at largo who have
business with his bureau. Mr. Morton loft
no stone unturned to gain republican votes ,
and within three days of the election is 10-
ported to have Informed the president that
the pro pccts were exceedingly bright ; that
Hoed would certainly be defeated , nnd that
there was not the faintest probability that
the republican majority would exceed fi.UOO.
The president has learned that it Is unsafe
to out your faith in commissioners , and that
there are Homo things in Maine politics
whieh even Morton does not know.

An IntorostliiR Clinrcli Question.
DCS MOINCI , la. , Sept. 10. [ Special to
Tin : MM : . ] An interesting case has been
ccupying the attention of the Presbytery of
ho United Presbyterian church hero during
he past week. Last winter a difference
rose in the church council as to whether
lie pews of the local church should bo free
ir be sold , nnd it was determined that they
hould bo sold. About fifty of the members
irotested iigainM , this plan , and showed their
disapproval by remaining away from church.
iVmong the protesters were twj elders who
took n prominent stand in denouncing the
icllon of the majority , and they were ox-
lolled. An appeal was taken to tlio Presby
tery and it has spent several days upon the
-aso. The question of the moral right to
sell church pews was discussed witli great
, 'igor and eloquence , the argument reaching
, ho intensity that has heretofore been dis-
ilaycd in settling the question of whether it
iX'ns a sin to have an organ in church. Finally ,
nftcr hearing all the evidence , the Presby-
lerv decided in favor of the expelled ciders ,
imif ordered that they bo reinstated. The
case will bo appealed to the state synod.

The Aniana Society.
Drs MOINI-.S , la. , Sept. 10. | SpccialtoTnn
ii : : . ] Down in Iowa county there Is a
argo colony at Aniana living together on a
jocialist plan. They have adopted the com
munity form of living though not with com
munity of wives or anything of that sort , as
at Oneida , N. Y. Hut they think they can
ivo better by pooling their Issues , so to
speak , and carrying on their business on the
community or general partnership plan. The
community includes several hundred voters.
Formerly they were all republicans. Hut a
few years ago they left the republican party
on account of prohibition , and have been
voting the democratic ticitct over since. They
had been raising grapes extensively , making
them Into wine , and they rebelled against
any intcrfercneo with what they called their
legitimate and honorable business. This
year , quito recently in fact , they have an
nounced that they should vote the republican
ticket again. They do consiiicrablo manu
facturing of woolen , starch and print goods
for the Amanain market , and they say that
'n self-protection they will have to vote
igninst the free trade party. So they will
probably all , to a man , vote for Harrison and
irotcctlon this year. This will make quite a
.inference in the result in their county.

Cable Special to Tim BEE. ! A terrible
operation for a cancer has just been suc
cessfully terminated by Dr. Hcrr Grucbor ,
who has presented his patient to the savants
of the Academy do Medicine. The entire
transversal section of the jaw , the entire
roof of the mouth , the salvatory glands , and
four-fifths of tlio tongue were cut away with
the knife. The wounds nro now healing
and the deformity resulting from this ter-
rillc operation is concealed by n beard , so
that any one casually meeting the patient
would not notice anything out of the way.
The sense of taste is preserved , but the
acuity of speech is almost lost. When ho
rlcstotalk ho only succeeds In making

Pasteur's innoeulatious have not been foi-

f death during treatment and two cases
after the completion of treatment. A Herald
correspondent has visited the hospital and

The llrst case was that of Mine , .lulle
Sarazin , of St. Maurice , Switzerland , ngod

two severe bites , one on the right siilo of the
forehead and another bite on the skull. The
alter tore away the skin in n spot six centl-
nctcrs long and five centimeters wide. Tlio
wounds wore b.ithod with phonic acid. Two
other bites in the right wrist were cauter-
zcd with nitrate of silver. The head of the
mad dog that made the wounds arrived nt

was innoculated in the eye with
the poison. Two other guinea
Digs were also innoculatod lii-tho body. The
first guinea pig went mad July 18 , the other
July 27. Mine. Tarazin was placed under
treatment July 4. Slio became nervously
prostrated July 24. She had headaches and
palpitations of the heart July 2. > . On July
SO and 2T she became diz/y. July 31 she had
pains and was attacked with vomiting.
During the nights of August 3 and I she died
at the hospital Uroussnjs. Two rabbits were
innoculated by treparnilion from the poison
taken from Mine. Sarazin. They died of
rabies August IS , fourteen days after in-
The second case was that of Joseph Guero ,
aged twenty-seven , bitten July 13 , 1SS3 , on
the upper lip. There were four bites , one of
which was very severe , at the junction of

There were two severe bites. La Beauramo
was unable to make the cat let go its hold of
him , and It was killed. The blooil flowed
freely from the wounds which were very deep
and not cauterized. The remains of the
cat that did the biting were brought
to the laboratory. A guinea pig was innocu-
latcd in the eye with the poison from the cat.
The pig died of rabies twelve days later. La
Beauramo was placed under treatment May
30. Ho left the Institute June 2 without gis--
ing warning of his Intention. Ho returned
Juno 14 because he felt severe pains in the
arms and a severe headache. His Innoculn-
tlons were continued , but in spite of them
La Ucauramc's sufferings continued. His
tcmpcrment became altered , ho wrote notes
about his sufferings and died of rabies In the
Hospital Do Versailles early in July.
The following persons have died of rabies
after the completion of the treatment. The
first case was that of MathewDucos , twenty-
eight years of ngc , n miner. Ho was bitten

went through the whirlpool rapids on August

ward proceodcd from the whirlpool to Lewiston -
ton , attempted the same feat this afternoon.
Ho left the old Maid of the Mist landing ,

the whirlpool rapids and out
of the whirlpool safely. When
about a half mile below the whirlpool waves
dashed in through the manhole door , forcing
him out into the boat. Heing thrown over
board ho swam through the dangerous rapids
to Lewiston , n distance of three miles , where
a fisherman picked him up in an exhausted
condition at7 o'clock. Percy had contracted
to make the voyage from the suspension
bridge through the Niagara river and across

A Very Successful Stiito Fair.
Dus Moixus , la. , Sept. in. [ Special to
Tun Hue. ] The officers of tlio State Fair
association have been busily engaged for several
oral days In settling up its accounts. They
find that the last fair was the largest and
most prolltablo so far hold , Tho. associa
tion has prospered over since it came to Dos
Momcs bankrupt nine years ago. Since that
time the fair has been making money stead
ily. It paid out $10,00) for buildings on
rented grounds , nnd then when the state
purchased grounds for n permanent homo ,
the association expended 75,000 , in buildings
nnd Improvements , and this year put in
510,000 moro. This year the receipts were
largo enough to make up past deficiencies ,
pay the old debt , and leave u few thousands
In the treasury. The association is therefore
out of debt , lias $100,000 worth of buildings ,
nnd owns real estate for fair purposes worth
$250,000. The Hock Island road carried
i' 0,000 persons between tills city and the
fair grounds. On ono day ( Wednesday )
8,000 pcoplo were brought m from the
grounds and unloaded In fourteen minutes.
The distance Is four miles.

AII Effort Will bo Miulu for Knrly Ac
tion on the Hill.
WASIIIXHOTOX , Sept. 10. [ Special to Tun
Lieu. ] Another effort Is to bo
made early this week to secure
action by the house on the bill
to charter the Nicaragua canal com
pany. There arc several opponents to this
measure In congress who assert that the fact
that the Panama compiny Is very anxious to
defeat this bill 1ms nothing whatever to do
with their attitude ; still the persistence with
whleh tlioso men use every parliamentary
device and the determination with which
they light the effort to pass the bill , would
Indicate that the Panama lobbyists have
been suftla ntly persuasive In their argu
ments to sTiffcn up the bucks of their friends
in congress. For there can bo no other
reason for opposing the great American en-
teipri u than thj doslro to aid the French
scheme for n cnnal acioss the
Isthmus between Panama nnd A pln\vall.
If Congress was asked to appropriate n
single dollar to guarantee interest on any
bonds , or to become involved financially in
any way In the Nicaragua project , there might
bo some good reason for opposing the bill :
but congress is not asked to contribute ono
cent. All that the projectors desire Is na
tional recognition in order that they may
have some status to maintain tlioir rights In
a foreign country. The benefits to bo de
rived from the construction of this canal can
scarcely bo estimated. From three to ten
thousand miles of distance will bo saved in
sailing from points on the Atlantic seaboard
otNorth America and from European ports
o all places on the Pacific coast , as well as
o China , Japan ami places in Austral-Asia.
Sot only this , but thn benefits to bo derived
ji a commercial sense nro almost incalcula
ble. All the Central American republics will
be brought Into closer communion with the
greatest republic on earth as soon as the
canal Is completed , and tlio vast resources of
Lhoso little countries , Costa Hlea , San Salva
dor , Guatamala , Honduras , Nicaragua and
the United States of Columbia will bo opened
to American enterprise and American energy
for development and progress.
Each ono of the republics named is as
iinxious for n canal connecting the two great
oceans as any people in the Unltod
States can bo. In fact , they ha/0
moro nt stake than wo have , and ,
consequently , the feeling in support of
the Nicaragua scheme is much moro wide
spread than it is in the United States. Amer
icans are too much given to a narrow view
of the possibilities for commerce. It is com
mon to road in American papers of the insularism -
sularism of the Englishmen , but English en
terprise has done moro to develop foreign
countries than any American farsighted
ness. In individual cases Americans have
boon as enterprising and as adventurous ,
and in fact more so , than any other people
on earth ; but when it conies to a question
where a little national ambition is required
wo find ourselves far in the rear.
The moment that the Nicaragua canal com
pany can bo organized with a national char
ter at its back millions of capital for the
purpose of building the canal will bo availa
ble. In fact , it is understood that more than
enough has already been subscribed , and
further than tills that three-fourths of the
sum required will bo furnished by citizens of
the United States. If the bill can ever come
to a vote It is doubtful if there will bo : t
dozen men to oppose it , but the otiponcnts
know this so well that they do not propose
that the voting stage shall ever bo reached If
they can possibly avoid it. Still It is so well
placed on the calendar that its final passage
seems to bo only a question of time , and
while it is possible that action may bo de
layed during the present session it seems
almost certain that before the close of the
fiftieth congress the United States will have
recognized the first great foreign scheme in
augurated by Americins and designed to ex
tend the commerce to our neighbors outside.
"ENUJjlSH , YOU KNOW. "
. Swell Hiding School with Admin
WASHINOTON , Sept. 10. [ Special to THE
BEU. ] It would have been much bettor for
the democratic party ut largo if President
Cleveland and some of his cabinet officers
had chosen some other placa for instructions
n horseback rldincr than Brown & Co.'s
swell riding academy , at Twenty-second and
streets , this city. Tlio firm came to this
city from the east not long ago , presumably
from Now York City , and after casting a
business eye around discovered that the west
end was the place for a riding sc-hool "you
know. " The social element was there and it
was sadly awaiting a novelty to break the
monotony of the old things that had become
tiresome. The riding academy was built , and
us the rate for instruction was put beyond
the means of the horny-handed son
of toil , that unfortunate character had
to get his instruction in tlio art
from oVhor sources. Tlio firm know that some
thing had to bo denote inalco asonsntion , and
the "paper hunt , " "public music rides , " and
the Hko were gotten up. These gave the es
tablishment tone , nnd drew tlio attention of
the administration and cabinet towards It.
In course of time this became known , and
the aristocracy were delighted ai it. Tlio
establishment bccamo " " in
very "toncy" con
The managers , to show the public how
highly they are esteemed , have now pub
lished a circular , which contains n statement
that among those who have bccomo annual
subscribers to the riding academy nro the
following ecntlonicn : Grover Cleveland , W.
C. Whitney. William C. Kndicott , Charles S.
Fall-child. T. F. Bayard and L. Q. C. Lamar.
This would have been proper enough in tlio
minds of the democracy , but for the un
fortunate additional statement in the cir
cular , that "only first class , imported
grooms employed in tlio stable. " Tins
glaring insinuation that the Amor-
lean groom was too incompetent for
such an "utterly too too" academy is more
than thoadministration supporters can relish.
The common American groom lias been ig
nored and set aside as not sufficiently "chic"
for the Jeffersonian simplicity that is alleged
to prevail. The administration , in the minds
of the faithful , has missed the c'laneo to use
the big park south of the white house for
practice of horseback riding on n slow "plug"
horse under the guidance of Its stable boss.
This would have been a card to cause multi
tudes to shout from ono end of the land to
the other. This was "not English , you
know , " and to bo a subscriber to the riding
academy wlicro "only first classjgrooms were
" the . "How will
employed" was thing. the
retaliation act fit herol" is what some people
would like to know.

How Uccltlcy Wits Nominated.
YOHK , Neb , , Sept. 10. [ Special to Tun
HEB. ) The senatorial squabble is just as
complicated as over. The secretary of the
convention has made out minutes of the pro
ceedings and had them published in the
Fillmore county papers and the York Hcpub-
lean. These alleged minutes abound in
jlnring inaccuracies , and contain statements
ivhich are positively false. Tills secretary
lolled the convention and now attempts to
jlvo the proceedings after ho left. The facts
nnccrning the convention are about as fol
York and Fillmore counties , under the
low dispensation , are now in one senatorial
district , York having eleven delegates and
illmoro ten. At the time of the county
convention the Fillmore politicians con-
reded the senator to York , understanding
, liat this senator was to bo Charles .
1. Keckloy. The delegates were
selected by Mr. ICecklcy and a commit
tee from the convention. Not the slightest
ililUculty or opposition was anticipated , and
no opposition arose until shortly before the
invention , when Captain Patrick S. Heal
amo out as n candidate. This did not worry
the York delegates greatly , as they had a
vote more than their opponents.
In the convention TIoii. N. V. Hnrlan was
chosen chairman. The first ballot was a
secret one and gave Heal eleven votes and.
Kcckloy ton. This was a thunderbolt to the
York delegates , who Immediately demanded
an Investigation. Tlio roll was called aud
eleven delegates declared they had
voted for-Keckloy. The Fillmore delegates
saw they were beaten and bolted , declaring
that the iirst ballot was legal and Just. Hut
something was wrong , as these eleven dele
gates now make affidavit that they voted for
Keckloy. A now vote was taken and Keckley
nominated unanimously. Call it n reconsid
eration or anything else , It Is certain that
a majority of the delegates of that conven
tion declared for Koekloy in open ballot , and
that certainly constitutes a nomination. A3
the matter stands now , both candidates
claim the nomination. The Fillmore dele
gates favor submitting the matter to the
state central committee , but tills committee
has not the slightest authority , and tlio York ;
delegates claim the nomination and don't ' sea
the necessity fonubitratlon. Tlio democrats
are hopeful , and if botli candidates remain la

lent opportunity of capturing tlio soat.
