There is likely to be some trouble at the
ftrgnnlzntion of the next house of representa
tives , for It Is going to be so uncomfortably
close that the democrats nro to-day claiming
n majority. The repjblicans are nlarmod ,
nnd nro taking measures to secure cortlll-
catcs for candidates of that party who claim
nn election. The democrats have telegraphed
to every district where thcro Is a doubt or
where the differences are Hinall , to have the
votes recounted nnd all doubtful ones
thrown out , which Is , in other words n hint
to USD fraud if possible. According to the
ilgurcs ns thov stated to-night , the democrats
and republicans each have UK ) members
elected , with the Second Louisiana , Tenth
Michigan , First West Virginia , First Cali
fornia nnd Fifth California In doubt. Of
thcio five the democrats ' expect to
pet two of a certainty , and proba
bly a third , which will give them n
majority of ono In the house. And In the
Second Louisiana district ! and n district In
North Carolina , where the republicans have
n very small majority of votes , it is ex
pected that the democratic returning of
llcers will give the democratic governor n
fhanco to furnish n certificate of election to
tlio democratic candidates.
The result of the conference between
Chairman Qunv , Senator Mahono and Gen
eral Butler at Chamberlain's yesterday , is a
movement in the courts to secure certificates
of election for three republican candidates
for congress in the state of Virginia who ,
the republicans claim , have been counted
nut. Ciencral Butler will have charge of the
legal proceedings , with local attorneys to as-
nisl him , nnd will apply to the United States
district Judge in Virginia , who is a republi
can , to grant n mandamus requiring the gov
ernor of that stutu to give the ceitiflcutes to
the republicans- . This will bring the ba.lots
Into court and result in recounting them.
In one of the Maryland districts similar pro
ceedings will bo taken , and the republicans
hope to gain two or tin eo members by this

Ho Will KstnhlUh a Illg Conservatory
of niiiHlc In New York.
NEW YOIIK , Nov. 13. Tlio long felt want
of Now York for a grand conservatory of
music , it Is reported , is soon to bo supplied.
Mr , Andrew Carnegie , It is said , has been
the prime mover In furthering the project.
Ever since ho was elected president of the
Oratorio society he has sought for some way
in which to make an acknowledgment of tlio
honor. The disbanding of Theocore Thomas'
orchestra made him moro anxious to estab
lish n big conservatory. In order to get their
views Mr. Carnegie has held several consul
tations with the directors of the Philhar
monic , Anon and other societies over the
matter with Mr. Thomas , Walter Damroseh
and a number of leading musical critics.
They are all united , it i.s said , in praising the
plan and gave Mr. Carnegie nssuianccs of
their hearty co operation and support of
those they represented. The conservatory
will not bo for the use of any organization ,
but shall bo owned and controlled by all.
Those interested will decide upon a leader
for the orchestra. This will probably bo
Walter Damroseh or Theodore Thomas.

A Victory For Salvationists.
TOPEKA , Kan. , Nov. 1 ! ! . [ Special Tele
gram to Tim Bcc ] . An important decision
was handed down to-day bv the supreme
court concerning the right of the Salvation
Army to parade upon the public streets.
Some weeks ago the city of Washington ,
with the intention of preventing the Salva
tion Army from parading upon its streets ,
passed nn ordinance forbidding any person or
organization to parade upon any public
streets of the city while shouting , singing ,
beating drums , tambourines , or other musical
Instruments , unless consent in writing from
the mayor wus first obtained. After this or
dinance was passed several members of the
Salvation Army paraded ono of the principal
streets of that city without consent of the
mayor. Their leader , together with suveral
of the male and female associates was ar-
arrested , and subsequently tried and con
victed. Appeals were taken to the supreme
court. That court , in the opinion handed
down , declared the ordinance void and dis
charged all the parties arrested.
West Virginia Still Uncertain.
PiTTSiiuito , Nov. 13. The Chronicle-Tele
graph Wheeling ( W. Vn. ) special says : All
the important oftlcial count in the mountain
state has not been completed , and until it is
no ono will know definitely whether Goft or
Fleming is elected governor , or whether the
elector al ticket is republican or democratic.
The majority cannot be moro than two or
throe hundred either way. It will probably bo
the latter part of the week before the official
count is given. Judge Fleming , democratic
candidate for governor , has demanded a re
count of the Knnawa retuins , which county
reported a majority for Goff of 1HJ. ! ) In the
counts so far no important errors hnvo boon
discovered. What trifling gains are made by
ono party are offset by similar gains for the
opposing side.

An Interview With Wnrrcn.
LONDON , Nov. 13. [ New York Herald
Cable Special .to TIIK BEI ; . ] Sir Charles
Warren has copied Lord Sackvillo nnd in
consequence shares his fate. John Murray
invited the commissioner to use nis pen. Ho
produced an article on the police , defending
himself. The matter came up In parliament.
His superior , the homo secretary , grabbed
him , saying that Sir Charles was Ignorant of
a rule in the department that no attache
should write of his ofllco without permission ,
This was tantamount to stating that Sir
Charles was inattcnthv , so ho resigned. Ho
and Lord Sackvillo will therefore soon meet
and compare notes.
I called upon him last evening in cense
quence. Sir Charles is a handsome , military
man , looking little over forty and considera
bly browned. Ho wears a moustache sug-
gcstlvo of silence , and his features arc regu
lar and handsome. In plnco of the military
martinet which ho is represented to bo in
some quarters , ! found a gentlemancourteous
in manner , nmlublc of disposition , with much
dignity. His manner had more the suavity
of a diplomat than the rough and ready style
of a military man.
"Can you give the Herald any details
about your announced resignation , Sir
Charles i"
"Well , not much , " he replied. "You must
understand that until the government has
appointed some one in my place I can say
nothing. However , there is one thing I
wish to bo understood. That is that
Mr. Matthews is speaking for the govern
ment , but ho is not doing so for me. I , the
commissioner , will , when the time comes ,
have my say. At present I nm still commis
sioner nnd responsible for the London police ,
therefore I may not speak yet. "
"Can you suggest the reason of your res
ignation ! "
"Not fully. But I will say that a great
grievance has beun the interference of the
home ofllco in the police department. "
"Is that of recent datei"
"No. It lias been so for two years. The
police department had by law been originally
placed under control of tlio chief secretary
of state. Tlio charge was next made over
to the homo secretary. However , this did
not make us a department of the home ofticc.
I hnvo resisted this latter assumption
throughout. When it came to orders being
written to us by the homo oftlce clerks it was
n little too much. "
"Wcru you not consulted ! "
"Not directly. A curious feature of the
whole business was that the government ,
icpresented by Mr. Matthews , held me per
sonally responsible for all the crime of Lon
don , nnd yet they made some communications
to my subordinate. It wus First Assistant
Commissioner Munro , now it is Mr. Ander
son. "
"Is there any trouble with the police ! "
"No ; that is all nonsense. No feeling such
as has been represented exists. I think you
will find that the metropolitan police are
more contented now than they have been for
years. "
"You did not resign on account of the last
Whitechapel murder ! "
Sir Charles adjusted his glasses and smiled.
He resumed emphatically : "No. I sent in
my resignation before the Kelly murder , on
the 8th of this month , immediately after Mr.
Matthews' statement in the house of com
mons in reference to my article in Murray's
Magazine. The resignation was accepted
yesterday. That article was perfectly in
nocuous and could not do any harm. "
"But the Munro case ! "
"Well , if Mr. Munro , who has special
charge of the detectives , says ho resigned on
account of a difference of opinion with mo ,
this is the first I knew of it. "
"Have you any information about the
Whitcchnpel murder ! "
"No. We arc following up the slight clues
all the timo. We have received about four
hundred letters. Every single idea was in
vestigated. For example , wo were asked to
drag a canal nt a certain spot. Wo did so ,
but there was nothing to bo found. People
talk as if nothing had been done. As for
tlio Malay story , it cannot hold. Wo have
had the water police on the alert from the
first. Then , wo have followed up the idea of
the murderous cook , and every slaughter
house Is under watch for a murderous
butcher. In fact , every clue has been closely
followed up. There ara some clues and
ideas which occupy our attention , but which
it would bo impolitic to foreshadow to the
public. " _

heavily from the south southeast in the north
of Scotland and Shctlands , and moderate to

of the country , but in the fur north the mer
cury is still falling with a continuation of the
southeasterly gale and heavy sea , The Gal

The appearance nt Wick bay was one of
Wild grandeur , huge rollers dashing over the

PAUIS , Nov. 13. [ Now York Herald Cable
Special to Tin : BEE , ] The chamber of
deputies to-day discussed the budget of the
ministry of foreign affairs. M. Ferronays ,
of the Ulght , declared that ho saw nothing to
criticize in tbo policy of M. Goblet during
the past six months , M. Goblet stated that
the situation could be faced with composure.
France threatened no one , nnd was suf
ficiently strong not to fear provocation. The
government would defend the dignity of the
country without forgetting that peace wan
the chief interest. An amendment having
been pressed to abolish the embassy to the
Vatican , M. Goblet said :
"As long ns wo live under the regime of the
concordat it is necessary to maintain rela
tions with the Vatican for the training of the
clergy and the appointments of bishops nnd
cardinals. Tlio importance of our protector
ate in eastern countries ) also requires the
maintenance of friendly'relations with the
Vatican. Hivnl powers tspiito our protec
torate. The friendsnip of the pope is there
fore precious. The pope already has his bit
ternesses. Is it for ns to increase them !
It has been said recently that the pops
could no longer count upon any country but
France. That does not , mean that France
will intervene to restore his temporal power ;
but the moro the pope , is deprived of the
power , the moro France ought to honor him
by curtailing nothing of lier respect for the
high authority ho'rcpsbsetifs. " [ Applause. ]
The amendment tons rejicted by a vote of
307 to 1207. The foroigfli budget was finally

Uinarily largo purchases of grain , hay and
army provisions now being made here as
well as in Podoliaund In. the district of Kieff
byn number of military attendants are at *
trading the attention of German nnd Aus
trian correspondents. It is said that this is
only a timely provision against the exigen
cies ofan anticipated longaud severe winter.
At the same time , however , the fact remains
that the Russian armyj now going into winter
quarters on the front , and near military
lines of the western frontier , is sufficiently
nowerf ul to meet any Untoward political event
which might necessitate its instant mobiliz
ation , either during the wiuter or early In
tlio spring. Russia has , however , no inten
tion , so long as the present political situa
tion endures , of in any degree depleting her
western garrisons. Iij this , there is no act
ual cause for the alarm and enpcssimism of
the Austrian'and more so of the Hungarian
press. Russia's present attitude is dis
tinctly a waiting attitude , and for some con
siderable time will unquestionably remain
the same , unless eomo unforeseen rupture

probably see some great changes in the pas

Pacific const , and the establishment of an
Asiatic-European express , to run between
New York and San Francisco , is more than
likely. The Chicago & Northwestern , the
Burlington , the Hock Island nnd the St.

bo bound by the time agreement in running
between here and the Missouri river after
January 11 , and after that date there is
likely to bo great rivalry between these
roads In the running time and equipment of
their trains , The Union and Central Pacific
roads will put on the fastest trains they have
over run next month , and when the time
limit of the Missouri river lines expire , it is
expected that thu Pucillc roads will make an
arrangement for the running of through
trains from 'Frisco to Chicago and New
York. Indeed , negotiations are being car
ried on with the Vaiiderbilt and Pennsyl

PANAMA , Nov. 13. Serious International
trouble Is on between Peru and the govern
ment of the United States. Tlfo circum
stances nro these : On the assumption that
n houseat Mollcndo belonged t J the Aro-
tiulpa railway , nnd was therefore the prop
erty of the state , orders were given to oc
cupy It by force , although the building was
declared to belong to citizens of the United
States. The United States consulate was sit
uated in the building , and this was forcibly
closed , padlocked , coat of arms removedand
the agent prevented from entering his office
for nearly n week. The American minister
nt Limn , who protested against thn seburoof
the house , on receipt of Uio Intelligence of
this aggression , cabled to his government ,
nnd was instantly instructed lo demand nn
apology. The liouso was vacated nftor six
days' occupation , but the government
peremptorily refused to make nn
npology , anil rather upheld their
proceed Ing. On this the minister
telegraphed the intelligence of the refusal ,
and the department of state nt Washington
ordered him to forward full particulars of
the affair before taking further steps. The
recently effected treaty between the United
States nnd Peru , as well us International
law , secures from outrage and any sort of
interference nil consular archives and pi on-
erty , and unless Peru can show some moro
plausible reason than the mistaken assump
tion for violating the consular privileges , and
that , too , in the face of the warning protest
from the minister , it is dlfllcult to see how
the government can avoid a serious misun
derstanding with the United States ,

stnto docs not anticipate any serious results
from the complications between this country
and Peru growing out of the sei7iiro of a
building in which was situated the United
States consulate a' , Molcndos , Peru ,
The facts , as reported to the department of
state by United States Minister Buck , are as
follows : The building which was seized was
the property of the Arcqiupa railroad com
pany , the acent for the company being also
the United States consular agent , nnd u room
in the structure was occupied as the con
sulate. The Peruvian government took pos
session of the building in the absence of the
agent , hold it for a few days , and finally
turned it over to the agent on Instructions
from Lima , alleging that the building had
been occupied solely for protection. The
consular records were not disturbed. As the
action appeared to bo a technical discourtesy
towards the United States , an apology was
requested but was refused , the Peruvian
government holding that it had done nothing
lor which to apologize.

Suggesting Appointments.
us , Nov. 13 , [ Special Telegram
to Tin : lien. ] The News this evening prints
this bit of interesting political gossip :
The first suggestion that has been made to
General Harrison since his election regard
ing appointments came from the leaders of
the Irish anti-ClevelanJ ( movement , four of
whom , Dr. Carroll of Philadelphia , nnd
Messrs. Dovoy , Brislin nnd Ityan of Now
Yoik , arrived in the city last Saturday , but
returned to the eastyestcrday. Efforts were
made to prevent the public from learn
ing the purpose of their visit , out
they did not hesitate to say
they wprc here in the interest of a repre
sentative American of extraordinary ability
whom the Irish citizens would bo pleased to
see honoicd by the administration. The rep
resentative American in whoso elevation
they are interested , it was ascertained , is
Wharton Barker , the Philadelphia banker ,
and proprietor of the Philadelphia American ,
Mr. Barker was one of the original Harrison
men , having strongly urged his nomination
at the convention in 1SS4 , and ho did
what he could in the interest of the Indiana
candidate preceding the triumph last June.
His claims to consideration , however , are
based largely on the work that ho is said to
have done during the campaign. When
Carroll , Dovoy and others begun
political missionary work in the interest
of the republican candidate they formed an
organization known as the National Irish-
American Piotectivo society , which , us a po
litical movement , was entirely independent
of the republican national committee , and re
ceived from it no pecuniary aid in defraying
necessary expenses. Wharton Barker was
their backer. Jt may may not be entirely
reliable , but the information comes from
pretty good authority that ho gave as much
as Jr > 0,000 to the orgnni/.ition. Therefore
Carroll and others , who were among
the leaders in the movement , uro anxious
that ho should receive Home re
ward. They were so kindly received
that Dovoy undertook to explain to
General Harrison that the members of the
Irish-American protection organi/ation felt
' that they were too young in tlio republican
'party to expect any ofllcial recognition , but
it would afford them much gratification if a
representative American who had been
especially friendly to them , us well as
to General Harrison himself , should ho
honored by the administration. General
Harrison's reply is said to huvo been neither
encouraging nor discouraging , and the inter
view ended with the callers feeling that if
they hud not accomplished much , they had
done their friend no harm. The position
that is desired for Mr , Barker is a pretty high
one , In fart , the visitors expressed doubt to
their friends hero if ho would ho disposed to
accept anything below the treasury iiort-
folio. U has been suggested , however , if ho
should not bo called into tlio cabinet , that
there are strong reasons for the belief that
ho would make n good minister to China.

Tin : Bii : : . | The Herald iirints n page of in
terviews on the question of prolonging tha
presidential term on account of the neridus
loss to business during political campaigns *
In nearly every instance bankers , brokers' ,
real estate nnd other business men favor
prolonging the term of prcwideiiU It is snitl
by those competent to form an estimate that
the shrinkage in the internal commerce anil
the industries of the United States in the
last four months , which can bo traced to the
apprehension , excitement nnd other condi
tions dependent on the presidential
campaign. amounts to not less
than $ , ' 00,000,000. , This is not u
cuoss , but is an estimate mndo
by several eminent observers , ono of
whom is Chnunccy M. Dopew. Mr. Depew
reckons the Internal business of the country
for four months at $5,000,000,000 , and is satis
fied that there has been a loss of ten per
cent , during tlio four months of the national
contest. That is what it costs to hold a pres
idential election , outside of the immense
sums spent directly In politics. Other esti
mates on the loss of business uro even higher
than those of Mr. Depew. In almost every
instance the remedy suggested is the pro
longing of the presidential term to six years ,
and making u man ineligible for re election.
