WASHINOTON , D. C. , July B. )
The president Is not expected to return to
Washington before Saturday night , mean
while tho. whlto house holds no attraction for
the olUco-scekers , Secretary Hnlford wns
nt his desk to-day , dictating letters. The
mantle of midsummer dullness has settled
over the placo. Mr. Hnlford says ho loft
Mr. Harrison and the McICcc.i at Deer Park ,
well and hnppy. The story about ono of the
bnblcs hitting the other on the head with n
stick , necessitating ttio sudden cnll for u
doctor on the trnlc , ho says , was the combi
nation mid exaggeration of two trifling cir
cumstances not ; even remotely associated
with each other , nnd the nuthorizizcd ver
sion is ns follows : A day or two ngo Benja
min Hnrrlson MclCco struck the baby over
the head with n duster , whllo at play , doing
no damage wortli speaking of except to the
duster , the Jinndlo of which was broken.
This occurred nt the whlto house. On the
train tlio baby merely got n llttlo sea
sick or travel-sick , for which Benjamin
Hnrrlson McKee was In no way
responsible. Mrs. Hnrrison thought n
doctor oupht to sco itho llttlo girl
nud the physician attending Kilralu , who oc
cupied the sleeper In front , was called In.
Ho found that the child needed no attention.
The story ascribing pugilistic qualities to
Benjamin Hnrrlson McKco may have been
told to Kilrain , for when the party got to
Deer Park ho got out of his car nnd went to
look at the youngster. Ho found him with
Mrs. Hnrrison just being lifted from the
car. The two great men , Kilrain and Baby
Benjamin Harrison , MoKco , shook hands.
The whole white house party nt Deer Park
will remain with Senator Davis for n few
days until the Spencer cottage , winch they
wll ) , occupy , is ready for their reception.
The Spencer cottage Is n neat looking ono ,
with n high pitched roof , painted red ,
pleasantly situated in full view of
the hotel nnd nbout ono hundred
yards to the cast of it. It is about the same
distance to the west of Senator Davis' homo
and but a few steps to the north of the El-
kins cottage. It contains eight rooms , four
on Onch floor , besides several small rooms for
the servants. It Is neatly furnished and
when in order will present n very homelike
appearance. A car load of furniture from
the Indianapolis residence was brought thcro
early In the week. Mrs. Hnrrison nnd the
president arc not strangers at Deer Park.
They have spent n portion of nearly every
summer thcro for the past ten years as the
guests of Senator and Mrs. Davis , and will
meet n large number of their old friends. As
yet nothing special has been arranged for
their entertainment. Mrs. Harrison needs
rest and will remain very quiet for a week at
least. After that time she may hold ono or
two general receptions , and a reception mny
be given at the hotel in her honor. The pres
ident Is expected to go up on Saturday with
Private Secretary Halford and remain over
Sunday and return to his desk on Monday.

A ItF.VOLBTION PENSION.
An old gentleman named Thomas I , Emmett -

dentally ascertained from vho records of the
pension office , u few months ago , that the
heirs of his grandfather , Churchill Gibbs , of
Virginia , were entitled \p the sum of $09,000

lying to his ctedit as a veteran of the revolu

Daniel , of Virginia , undertook n settlement

THE I'EIIBUX MINISTERS SULK.
Hndjo Hnssclu Ghooly ICnlin , the
Persian minister to the United States ,
will shortly leave this country for
Europe. In nn interview to-duy ho
told n reporter ho hud been driven out of the
country by the unkind nnd ungenerous
things which had been written nbout him
nnd tils sovereign in American newspapers ,
The minister said ho had no fault to
llirl with the government or its officers
Inquiry nt the Persian legation to-day de
velops the fact that the newspaper extracts
of which the minister complains BO bitterly ,
nro mostly duplicates , many of them Asso
ciated press dispatches or special dispatches
nnd letters furnished by syndicates. Ho has
had these clippings furnished by n press
news bureau , and , us they charge so much
per cllppmg , they have not always been
careful about sending him not only dupli
cates but sometimes ten or twenty copies of
the same article , \yluch ho has placed In his
scrap book and translated each tlmo as the
expressions of publio opinion. Many of
them are cablegrams from London giving
the gossip about the expected visit of ttic
Bliah , nnd in no way attempt to express or
reflect the sentiment of the American people.
A largo part of the clippings ulso nro devoted
to comments upon tlio appearance and con
duct of the minister since ho came to Wash ,
ington. His custom , Ins mode of life , his
manners , his conversation , huvo been the
objects of comment by letter-writers tiero in
Washington over slneo his in-rival. Ho
has been the toplo particularly
oT the corrcsnondonts for country
newspapers and scientific writers , but there
Is not In tlio entire collection ono single par
agraph of editorial comment unfavorable to
him or to tils government. The contents of
tils scrap bonk show that ho has been treated
with n great deal moro respect nnd defer
ence than tlio president of the United States.
Both Cleveland und Harrison have a grout
deal more to complain of in this respect , than
the Persian minister , who thlnus ttmt the
povcrnuannt ought to control the press us It
docs In Persia and look up the editors of
papers who print disagreeable things.

THE SENAT13 COiUflUTl'UE.
President Bliss , of the Boston & Al-
hntiy , Testifies Before It.
BOSTON , July 5. The United States sonnto
committee on inter-state commerce began its
session hero to-day. Several railroad officials
are being examined.
Prusident Bliss , of the Boston & Albany
railway , stated that ho was not ono of ttioso
who believed the Grand Trunk railroad
should bo prevented at this Into day from
doing business in the United States , pro
vided , however , they were subject to nil the
rules nnd regulations to which American
roads are subjected. Ho had no
personal knowledge that the Ca
nadian roads were making reduced
rates , but it wiistho gcnoraloplnionthat they
woro. If they make reduced rates to in
dividuals ho considered that they failed to
comply with the urovislons of the Inter-state
commerce rates. If tno system granting sub
sidies to the Canadian roads was continued
it would bo Injurious to Boston in so far ns It
would divert trade from Boston. Bliss
claimed if it wns just to regulate American
roads so that they can not com
pete with water lines it is Just also
to rcguluto Canadian roads so they
can not prey upon American roads after the
latter nro tied up. Senator Blair tried hard
to make the president say that if Canadian
competition was removed the roads would
surely increase their charges , but the wit
ness would not do so , stating that if the Ca
nadian roads were subjected to the same reg
ulations ns the American roads the latter
would have to take their chances In competi
tion. Ho was not disposed to thinlc the Ca
nadian roads the public benefactors that the
people thought them.

Warner , ho now could see wherein it con
tained ono of the most essential provisions
for his people in the matter of schools.
With Whlto Ghost , the acknowledged head
chief of the Crow Creek Indians , In favor of
the treaty , very much is gained. The ex
ceedingly warm weather , with a prevailing
hot wind , has destroyed the crops in this
section , and this makes an argument for the
Indian to sell his land nnd secure further aid
from the Great Father. The same condition
of affairs exists hero in relation to General
Croolc as nt other agencies , hn being cred
ited by the Indians with all the influence.

in the constitutional convention liopan to
split hairs this afternoon , mid unless the
tlmo servers are sat down upon the llttlo
work there is to do will not DO completed
under three or four weeks. The disposition
to postpone final action on simple nnd well-
matured questions probably made some of
the delegates who mean business reflect upon ,
the suggestion that there nro these who want
to stay till the 520,000 appropriated by con
gress for the expenses of the convention Is
exhausted. Ah of the sovonty-llvo delegates
were present except the Deadwood Judge ,
who refuses to servo because ho is already on
the pay roll of Undo Sara , and very prop
erly holds that ho Is not eligible. Ho told
his constituents what the result would bo
during the campaign , but they thought they
know more low than tholr federal judiciary
nnd elected him. His seat will bo vacant.
The democrat who ran against him docs not
claim the place , contrary to custom in con-
Congratulatory telegrams were road from
the constitutional conventions of North Da
kota nnd Washington. The former tele
graphed from Bismarck :
"Tho constitutional convention of North
Dakota sends greeting and bids you God
speed in your advancsment toward state
hood and full American citizenship. May
the four now stars about to bo added to the
national flag not lose in brilliancy through
lack of care in laying the foundations of the
states to bo. Let Washington bring fruits
and flowers , Montana its precious metals to
add to the beauty and wealth of the nation ,
while the Dakotas will bring wheat and
corn to feed the people of the world. "
The officers nominated by the republican
caucus last night were all formally elected.
Democratic candidates were placed before
the convention , and each received an aver
age vote of 21 out of the 73 votes cast.
Uy a rising vote , without dissent nnd with
cheers , the constitution of the United States
was adouted as n part of the constitution for
the state of Soutti Dakota.
A delegate , ns the convention was being
seated after the vote , said : 'Thoro are no
rascals here. "
From the committee on rules , to whom It
was yesterday referred , a report was made
on the question of a commission to visit Bis-
inarck and acting with a commission of simi
lar proportion from the North Dakota con
vention , agree upon n division of the terri
tory's archives and indebtedness. The com
mittee recommended that the commission , on
the part of this convention , should consist of
seven delegates. This was believed to be
too many. Fourteen men would prolong the
work and exorcise less judgment than six or

At the same tlmo the proposition to appoint

Knncher Formally Elected.
BISMARCK , Dak. , July 5. | Special Telegram
to Tin : BEE. | On convening to-day the con
stitutional convention carried out the caucus
programme by the election of F. B. Fancher ,
the republican-farmers' alliance candidate ,
to the presidency of the convcrtlon. The
democrats nominated Judge John E. Carland ,
of Bismarck , und Fancher was elected byn
vote of 63 to 17 , ono democrat voting
for Fanchor and flvo delegates not
voting. The actual democratic strength
in the convention is 19 , against 50 republican.
Upon taking the chair Funchcr delivered a
speech , the tone of which , coming ns It did
from a strong Fnrmors' nlllatico man , was n
pleasant surprise. Many have feared that
the alliance victory meant radical and In
jurious clauses in the constitution. During
his speech Fanchor said :
. "As presiding officer I can not promise
very much. I nm not , very \voll versed in
parliamentary law , but I think I will venture
to do my best to please you , to endeavor to
carry out your wishes and to assist you in
embodying in this constitution for North
Dakota the sound judgment and level

Dakota and not to foster the interests of any
man or particular class of men , If , after
some experience , I shall succeed in meeting

justified ynu In your action to-day. If I
shall bo so unfortunate as to fall , I do most
solemnly assure you it shall not have boon
my fault , but my misfortune , for I will
make every effort to succeed. "

way Inr that body to escape Ibe issue. It
must bo met and disposed of in sooio manner.
The location of iho state capital is another
matter that will cut a very prominent figure
in the convention.

gram to Tun Bun. | There appears to ho a
good deal of ill feeling botweun the parti
sans of Sullivan and Kilrain. About the
hotel rotundas there are a good many acri
monious discussions in which the expletives
used are more forcible than elegant. There
seems to bo n disposition on iho part of in
terested parties to get every dollar there is
in sight , and the question of admitting oven
members of the local press is causing much
bitterness among the respective managers.
It bus been decided that each local pancr
shall bo allowed two representatives and
each of the prominent outside papers will bo
allowed but ono. It has been arranged that
no part of the gate money will bo paid over
until the light is finally decided , and if thcro
is not a square light it will not bo paid over

This is the programinoof the local managers ,

Cable Special to Tim Uun.l The following
Is n summary of the canvass made by the Her *
aid throughout the United Kingdom as to ttio
crop urosnccts for the present year : The
prospects for bountyful crous n England ,
Scotland nnd Ireland are qulto favorable.
The reports furnished by special correspond *
cuts of the Herald of the conditions m the
farming districts of England nro very full
nnd ulso very cheerful. The reports from
Ireland are nlso gratifying. The crop pios-
pcots In Scotland were moro than usually
favorable until the drought set In , but oven
In Scotland farmers have not given up the
battle. The outlook In the districts border
ing on Surrey Hill is satisfactory nnd the
harvest south of the Thames promises to bo
much bettor than usual. In Leicestershire
the prospects nro much bettor than nt the
same tlmo last year and un nverngo yield of
wheat Is expected. In ( Cast Gloucestershire
the hay crop Is good but the roots nro back
ward. In Durham the condition of crops
generally , but of liny particularly , is very
satisfactory ; twenty-four hours of rnln is
needed. The prospects nro considered un
usually fine in Dorcostorshlro. The sauio
may bo said for East Kent , though only an
average crop of hops is looked for. For
quality und quantity the hay crop of Somer
set is bettor than for twonty-tlvo years. In
Hereford the hay crop is the best since 1808.
It lias been exceedingly hot and dry in Corn-
wnll since Mny. Much therefore depends on
the weather In that county ; rain is badly
needed. Haiti Is also wanted in Lincoln
shire , but a good harvest is cxnectod m
Worcestershire. Grain crops nro nbovo tl)0 )
nverngo ; fruit prospects nro not so good.
Somerset farmers want rain , but nro la
cheerful spirits. From Graiitham comes
word that a considerable rainfall Is needed.
Crops in Huntlngtonshiro look well.
Hay Is particularly heavy. Rain would
benefit nil crops in Berks. The grass crop is
heavy ; other crops nro up to ttio average.
An unusually largo harvest Is looked for in
Norfolk. Not for years have the prospects
been so bright.
Appearances indicate extraordinary crops
in Kings county , Ireland , but some farmers
predict crop failures unless rain soon falls.
An immense crop of hay has been gathered.
In Derry nnd Donegal the crops nro the best
for many years and give promise of being
from 1 to 10 per cent above the average. A
general report from Dublin states that the
crops never looked finer. Spring was early.
Early planted potatoes nro in good condition ;
late ones need ruin for un average crop. The
crops all nroun'd seem good for n
increase of " 5 per cent above the average-
for twenty years. Crops in Golwny are
rather backward. The beginning of the sea .
son was very wet , but there has since boon
much dry weather. Wheat Is safe to yield
largely. Rain might innko nn all around
average in west Cork. Crops nro generally
flourishing and 30 tier cent above the nvorago
yield will not surprise the farmers. In Scot
land the prospects were liner earlier in the sea
son. The weather has bjon too dry recently ,
at least such is the word from Glasgow. Ad
vices from East Lothian , on tlio other hand ,
indicate a line crop. Wheat and barley look
especially well ; 20 per cent * of an Increase is
looked for. Reports from Edinburg are sat
isfactory. Rain is said to bo needed for the
root crop , Three weeks ago prospects la
Lanarkshire were brilliant. There has boon
drought since , though hopes nro yet outor-
tained of nn average crop.
