long acquaintance with Old Santa, undertaken to distribute a large line of all kinds of Toys,

his instructions: "First come, First Served with the Choice of the Line.

Washington, Dec. 15, 1899.—The
President and nil I lie members of the
cabiret, intended the ceremonies held
at Mount Vernon in commemoration
of the centennial anniversary of the
death of George Washington, luit they
declined to close I lie government de-
partments for the day, in order to ul
low the small fry officials to attend.
Congress was also well represented at
the Mount Vernon ceremonies, but
the program for the financial debate
in tlie House, which had to include
three night sessions in order to give
t hose who w ished to speak a chance to
ilo so, made an adjournment of the
House for that day out of question.
It did not really matter Unit yesters
day's speakers in the House talked to
empty seats, as they were not talking
for the members of Lhe House but for
Although Hie Mouse luis many able
members on both sides of the tinancial
question, very little good newspaper
'copy" has been made liv the debate
oil the financial bill. This is no dis-
credit to the numerous gentlemen who
lave made speeches for or against the
bill. When n question lias been a
thoroughly discussed as that of finance
lias been in Hits country, before, dur
ing and since Hie last presidential
campaign, it, is simply impossible for
any man, no matter how able lie may
be, to say anyt hing new on t he subject,
and reiterations on the most impor-
tant, subjects never strike newspaper
men as good "copy." The talk has
not changed a vote. It wast well
known frcm the first that Hie hill
would pass, simply because it is a par-
ty nieaiisuie of the majority, which
will receive every republican vote in
the House artd t he votes of a few deui
ocrats from the East.

The Senate is moving along in its
leisurely way, attending to routine

The nomination of Gen. Leonard
Wood to be made major general of vol-
unteers lias been utmuiraoueiy con-
firmed by the Senate. There was
some talk, inspired by military jeal-

ation of Geo. Wood, but his personal
popularity with senators Iliads those
who started it see that silence wan the
part of wisdom, The appointment of
Gen. Wood to he military governor of

to testify. Roberts is managing ids

that of a pettifogger seeking to becloud
the question at issue, which is simply
whether he has practiced polygamy
since there was a law against it. The
committee hes no doubts, but it wish-
es absolute proof before acting.
