u Uullult In
WASHINGTON , Dec. 31. Chairman Dlng-
ley of the 'ways cad meaao committee fur-
nlshcs'lho AfiSoclateJ Press the following
statement of the revenue outlook :
The revenue for December shows nn In
crease ot more than $2,5CO.00 ( over that of
September , and cvon exceeds the oxpen-
dltiuros for December nearly $1,750,000.
The ofllclal figures for December ( sxclud-
l ing $31,713,201 received during the month on
account of tlio 1'aclllc railroad sale and
tno $000,000 paid out to qualify the govern
ment representative to bid In case ot the
sale of the Kansas Pacific ) make the re
ceipts $27,9JU9I ; expenditures , ? 2C,19iCOO , and
suiplus $1,73G-9I. ! The receipts in December
1S94 were nearly $22,000,000 , in December UM
they were $2G,00COO , and In December 1E9G
a Ilttlo less.
I This surplus for December , 1E97. however ,
! arises from the fact that there have been
almost no Interest payments for the month ,
which .makes the expenditures below the
i average. In January the quarterly Interest
I < will be due , which will swell the cxpendl-
I turcs considerably above the average ami
I leave a deficiency for that month notwlth-
standing the revenue will probably rise to
! at least $29,000,000 and possibly more.
I On the basis of this estimate the secre
tary of the treasury that the expenditures
for the present fiscal year will be Wra.OOO.COD
a Ilttlo over $200OJJ,000 bavins already
been expended th2 average monthly ex
penditures for this six months beginning
January will bo about $29,003,000 na the ex-
pcndltures of the first bait of the fiscal year
are considerably larger than those ot the
last half , on account of the suspension of
many pub'.lc works In the winter season ,
and the huge July payments of the liabili
ties of the previous fiscal year.
There is no doubt in treasury circles that
I the revenue under the new tariff law from
I January 1 to July 1 will exceed In the ng-
f regale the expenditures for the same
j period , notwithstanding January and pos-
| slbly April the two montns for payment
of quarterly Interest will show a balanca
on the wronp side , The revenue was only
$ iaCCOCCO in August ( $7COOCOO from cus
toms ) In consequence of the large importa
tions between March 1 and July 24 In an
ticipation of the new tariff. It rose to
$22,005,000 In September ( SS.OW.CCO from cus
toms ) , to $24,000,000 In October-$11,753,003 ( from
ctfsloms ) , In the month of November , and
now- rises to nearly $23,000,000 In December
( S11 , " > 00OOD fiom customs ) . This Increase
will grow as goods Imported In anticipation
I of the new tnrllf are consumed. Indeed ,
| the Increase of revenue as to sugar and
i as to wool will not be materially felt far month * .
The increased receipt from internal reve
nue taxes arc duo to the provisions ot the
new tariff abolishing th2 discount on lieer
stamps nnd increasing the tax on ciga
rettes and to th T bottling law passed by the
last congress , In connection with tlio Im
provement in business.
While the apparent deficiency for the first ,
half of the present fiscal year lias been
about $14,005,000 ( the revenue having been
nearly $15S.OOO.OCO and the expenditures $ C02-
000,000) , yet it will bo observed that this will
have been almost wiped out by the $3SOCO-
COO of rev'iuie received from March 1 to
July 1 , from importations In excess of the
same period of tha previous year made In
anticipation of the new tariff nnd Intended
for consumption the present fiscal year ,
which revenue was necessarily placed to the
credit of the last fiscal year but In equity
bolonfR to thlo flscal year , And this does
not take Into account the absolute loss of
revenue arising from anticipatory Impor
tations which the treasury lias already ex
perienced and will continue for several
months to experience In a loss degree.

parton , representing the lied Crosa , with ref
erence to the distribution of relief funds
cpa supplies In Cuba. It Is not yet settled
whether the Red Croso will undertake to
use Us machinery In Cuba , but the confer
ence today tended strongly to that end , The
present moans of distributing contributions ,
in Cuba are iiald to bo good in most OISM ,
the agencies being the Catholic bishops scat ,
tered through the Island and the United
States consular officers , but thcro U otlli
opportunity for a betterment. Assistant Sec

Importance of contributing ca.ih , although
clothing iind other supplies will to thank

part of the Interior of Cuba Is accessible
only to ox teams and the like and that no
railroads penetrate thcso places , To carry
supplies In will require tbo hiring of teams ,
and this can lie iJono only with ready money.
The Si'llo department has been advised that

WASHINGTON , Doc. 31. The director ot
tlio mint from Informat'lm ' now nt hatid aays
that there Is mibitaiv'.lal evidence that the
world's product of gold ( or the calendar
yrar 1897 will approximate , if not exceed ,
$240,000,000 , an Increase of nearly 20 per
cent over 1890. Tlio gold product ot the
United Statca ( or 1890 was $53,100,000 ; ( or
1897 U will approximate $01,500,000 , co lu-
crcaso of $8,400,000.
The product of Africa fur 1S9G was $14.-
400,000 ; returns received up to December 1 ,
197. Indicate that the gold product of that
I rountry ( or the year will bo $53,000,000 , au
Increase of $ .13,600,000 , For Australia for
1896 Iho production wag $4.5,800,000 ; ( or 1S07
the Indications arc that it will not bo less
than $51,000.000 , an Increase ot $5,200,000.
Mexico In 1S96 produced $8,330,000 , : ( or 1S97

an Increase of J 1.070.000. The Dominion )
of Canada for 1890. 52,800,000 ; it is I
estimated for 1897 at $7.600.000 , or oil Increase I I
of | 4,700.000. India's product fpr 1S97 Is i

400.000 over 189C. Russia's gold product for
189G wss $21,5.10,000 ; for 1S97 estimated to
approximate $25,000,000 , an Increase of $3-
The Indication for the United States Is
that Colorado will lead In 'the production cf
gold for 1897 , as It Is estimated by ex-Gov
ernor Grant tlwt It will not bo lets then
$20,000,000. Nevada will follow with a prod
uct of probably $19,000,000. With the ex-
ceptlcn of the South Appalachian rcuge , 1 !
Is believed there will bo an Increase In
every producing state of the gold product
over that of 189G.
1'ronTL'NH of Step * Tiiirnrit tJic Expedi
tion to AliiMlcn.
WASHINGTON , Dec. 31. It lias been dis
covered , on a careful Inspection ot the per
mit granted by the British government for
the taking of supplies Into ths Klondike
country free of duty , that the exemption ex-
tend.s only to such goods as are gratuitous ! ;
contributed. Under the terms of the act ol
congress the secretary of war Is permitted
io give supplies to such persons as are unable -
able to pay for them , but the act scorns to
require that where the minors are able to
pay for food , the money Is to be applied la
defray the expenses of the relief expedition.
A strict Interpretation of the lrltlsh ! permit
would not sanction tills action. Still , aa
the permit was In the shape cf a letter from
Sir Julian Pauncefote , the British ambassa
dor , transmitting a telegraphic acqulcscsncu
by the governor-general of Canada , and
since It was sent the Canadian iccretary or
the Interior has conferred with Acting Secretary -
rotary Melklejohn , with a full knowledge of
the Intention of the War department , It Is
believed that the Canadian government will
not Interpose any objection to our govern-
mcnt recouping Itself as far as possible by
selling supplies at cost to miners able to
pay for thum.
It appears that the plan of using reindeer
ns a means of transportation from the sea
board to the Klondike does not promise suc
cess owing to the Inability of the government
! Cgcnt , Mr. KJellman , to gct the animals
from Lapland In time to bo of service thlj
winter. It is the present puipose ot the
War department , therefore , to push through
with the muly pacic trains as : fftr 35 possible ,
nnd old campaigners assert that they can
get to Fort Selkirk at least , leaving the
reindeer to follow up the trail , If they
come along at all. The deer would be of the
greatest use If they can be gotten through
to Dawson , oven without a pack load , OA
they can b ? slaughtered for fresh meat.

WASHINGTON , Dec. 31. A complimentary"
dinner was given last night at the Metropoli
tan club by J. Foster Pcabody of this city

May Cut OfY the UoynlilcH.
WASHINGTON' , Dec. 31 , It Io ascertained
at the Navy department that the decision of
the patent office expeits , recently submitted
In the matter of the , patents for the Harvcy-
ized armor plae , may result In the with
holding or the payment of further royalties
cc > plate furnished by the large ateel com-
uanlca. The question submitted by Secre
tary Long to tfce patent ofllco was whether
the employment of a temperature above that
of mplten cast Iron Is an essential feature
of the Harvey patents , and the crpr.-ts
reached the conclusion that such heat was
an essential feature of the device. The
Navy dcfartment armor plato experts are
of the oplnlcci that the highest temperature
Is not essential to the obtaining ot the most
satisfactory face-hardened plate. * . The use
of temperature not qulto as high as that
covered by the Harvey process Is not re
garded by them as au Infringement o ! tbo
Harvey patents.

WASHINGTON , Dec. 31. The attorney
general lisa received a letter from the United

states that the Inquiry Into tiio movements
of the suapected filibuster , Somcrs N. Smith ,
has not so far disclosed anything of a dam
aging character within , the laat two months.
The examination , however , has produced evi
dence tending to show that late last August
or early In September the Smith success
fully landed 1m Cuba a cargo of munltlcoo ot
war for the use of the Insurgents. Two of
the callers on this expedition have tcntlflcdi
to this effect and It la probable- the United

ones a formal libel against the Smith and
place Its officers on tral. !

WASHINGTON , Dec. 31. ( Special Tele
gram. ) Congressman Mercer called nt the
Wnr department today In the Interest of the
packing houses ot South Omaha , requesting
that they bo rurnUmed with notice of the
War department Inviting proposals for sup
plies for the government relief expedition
to Alaska. Two thousand dollars has been
appropriated for the purpose and as much
ot It IB will have to bo spent In canned
meats and products of packing houses ho
asked that the department extend courtesies
to South Omaha packers , In view of the fact
that they are nearer the country to bo sub
sisted than the packing houses to the east
ward. Assistant Secretary Melklejohn has
taken great Interest In the relief expedition
to Alaska , the sickness ot tbo secretary of
war making It essential ho nuould meet all
parties credited from foreign governments
looking to the relief ot suffering miners In
that country.
Hon. Clifford SIfton , Canadian secretary
of the Interior , who has been In the city
with relation to the relief of Klondike suf
ferers , lu speaking of the Omalia exposition
said : "I should bo pleased to do everything
in my power to promote the Transml&ils-
slppl Exposition ami put Um matter before
the proper officials at Ottawa. Owing to
the magnitude ot the exposition and to our
Interests I think Canada should do all In its
power to make a creditable exhibition. "
A politician well known In South Dakota
said to The Boo regarding the report thak
Senator Pcttlgrow was endeavoring to get
back Into tha republican party , that ho was
now looking for friends who might repre
sent him , not only In the primaries , but In
local political situations , In various cities ,
towns and hamlets of the state , so that lie
would liavo an organization that would bo
powerful when his term as senator expired ,
March S , 1901 , and thereby secure his re
election to the United States senate. The
course of Senator Pcttlgrovr has been pecu
liar , and even here his friends have doubted
whether It was good politics to make the
plays ho has made for political preference.
In consequence of his position there- has
arisen against him , according to statements
of South Dakotans , n feeling which Is grow
ing stronger each year and which will Im
peril his re-entry Into republican politics.
The primaries are being looked after , so 'far
as can bo learned , against his breaking back
Into the party Which gave him political life.
According to those who dominate republican
politics In South DakoU , there will bo nn
uprising against , allowing I'eltlgrew to suc
ceed himself as Uujted Stales senator.

after thanking his hosts said : '
"Tho ability of a man and hta greatness
of heart and mind should bo judged by the
work ho has done and by the achievements
ho has attained. Mankind Is made up ot
domestic , civil and religious society. Leo
XIII , with his encyclical letters on mar
riage , oa the constitution of civil eoclety ,
and on the labor question , deals with the
security ot A superior mind with the greatest
problems and questions of the day and strives
to promote the prosperity and welfare ot so
ciety as well as ot the nation , pointing out
Iho niencn to bo used for attaining that end
and Indicating the evils which lead to Its
destruction or ruin. 'Among the evils pointed
out by the supreme pontiff are the want of
Individual and social freedom , the want of
honrsty , uprightness nnd religion , liccnuse
no man can bo honret , upright and loyal to
his neighbor who Is not loyal to his God ,
who Is not impressed with Iho idea that
there Is a supreme being to whom ho must
give sooner or later an account ot all hie
private nnd public actions.
"Thoro Is no need for mo to speak to you of
the pope's great love for your country and
Its la&tltuUons , nor ot < the Interest ho takes lu
Its prosperity , The general character of
Hio American people , the uaturo of your
political constitution , based < cn ono ot tha
greatest attributes with which man U endowed
dewed , with liberty , atfiods as the basis and
foundation of thU hope.A. . ke-cn observer
cannot fall to notice ibat the marvelous
progress made by 'tho Olthollo church In
this country la duo not only to Ita principles
and doctrines , but also to 'tho liberty wtilch
It cajoys In this tree land. Such progress
cannot bo accounted for unlcas wo admit the
Intrinsic forcn of Christian principles and
doctrines and the fltnoss and adaptability of
the laid In. which suc'i seed Is sowa. Let us
therefore congratulate you all for your good
dispositions end on the work already
