"I havo not yet selected a slnglo member of
my Cabinet, aud all statements that I havo
aro lucorrect. Nobody has any authority for
saylug that I havo decided to put any man
Into my Cabinet, for I havo told nobody any.
thing which warrants him In believing that I
will appoint a specillc Individual. I havo not
vet Dually determined upon a 6lngIo man.
Sometimes I may have lliuught I hail, hut at
other times I have been equally certain that I
havo not, I am certain now,"
"I supposo thero has been a good doal of
pressuro brought to bear upon your" tho gen
tleman remarked.
General Harrison, ho says, almost grow
anury, and, rising from his chair, said:
"Thoro has, hut I am not going to bo forced
Into making uuy man a member of my Cabi

as layluggrcat stross upon tho word "forced,"
and ho was deeply Impressed with tho feeling
which General Harrison put Into his tones.
'Thou, I supposo, we will not learn tlio per

"I shall not aiinounco my Cablnot until
after I becomo President. When I send tho

This account may be relied upon Implicitly.

Thoy Approvo tho Treatment Olvon tho
Unfortunate Man, mid Dciiluro That nn

propriation, A special mooting of tho Exccutlvo
Commlttco of tho Garfield Hospital,
culled to inquire into tlio Daniels affair,
was hold yesterday afternoon, and ad
journed over to meet again this morning.
Thoro wore presont of tho commlttco
Henry A. AVillard, Joseph McCamcron,
Dr. John S. Billings and Reginald Ken
dall, and Dr. J. M. Toner, president of
the medical staff. The chairman stated
that on tbo 0th Instant ho hnd addressed
a communication to tbo staff asking
for Information as to tho admission, dis
charge and treatment of tho patient, R.
O. Daniels. Dr. Toner roported thut a
special mooting of tho staff to consider
tlio matter was held tlio next day at
which wero present Drs. J. M. Toner,
AV. W. JohtiBton, James Kerr, Joseph II.
Bryan, J. AV. II. Lovejov, Lewis Mack
all, J. Ford Thompson, AVllllam May,
Swim M. Burnett and Lloyd M. Mil
gruder. They heard tho statements of
the rcsidont physician nnd his assistant,
tlio matrou, soverul of thu nurses, the
orderly and flvo of tbo patlonts who had
boon disturbed by D.infols. After thor
oughly oxamlnlug this evidence tbo staff
unanimously adopted tho following reso
lutions: Tlin IIOSl'lTAIi TltnATMKNT AlTllOVED.
Tho data on which tho report of tho
staff was mado was submitted with tbo
report and thoy fully support tho con
clusions reached. Additional ovidonco,
such, for example, ns tho writton state
ments of tho pollco surgeons, Drs.
Kleinschmldt nnd Snyder, indicatine
their approval of tho treatment tho
patient received at tho hospital and thoir
concurrence In tho measures taken for
his removal, in .view of tho fact that
Mrs. Graves and her daughter, his Im
mediate friends, wero anxious not to
havo him return to their houso, fully
warrant thia committee in accepting tho
report.
Additional testimony taken by this
committee shows that in tho presont
mental condition of the patient any st,nto
mont from hlmmust bo inconclusive, and
that at no tinio sinco his removal from
the hospital has ho been capablo of
making a reliable statement.
Tho following roport was adopted, nnd
the chairman was Instructed to present It
to the Board of Directors:
Mil. DAMUI.'S CONDITION.
lleiolvcd, That In tho opinion of tho staff
Mr. Daniels was undoubtedly, on account of
mental disturbances, nu unlit person to re
main In tho hospital.
Iiesohtd, That as Mr. Daniels was violent
and noisy and was by his actions disturbing
tbo other patients of tho hospital, and as his
friends had nlroady been notllled by the resident
physician of. tho necessity for his discharge
aud of his Intention to send him to tho pollco
station If thoy should declluo to mako other
proper arrangements for hlscaro, aud thoy rc
luslng to receive him, It seems that thoro was
no other place euitublo for bis temporary su
pervision: ,:rjE.EXECUTIVI! COJtMlTTBE'S HErORT.
As the result 'or careful Investigation Into
tho facts of tbo caso of It. O. Danlc's, allcscd
to havo been Improperly treated at tbo Garfield
Hospital, and to havo been sout from thero to
tho pollco station without sufllclent cause;
and having beforo It tho report of tho Medical
Staff of tho hospital, tbo written statement of
patients, nurses and other employes of the In
stitution, and also tho statements of the per
sous who placed Mr. Daniels In tho hospital,
tho Executive Committee reports ns follows:
1. That Mr. Daulels, at the timo of his ad
mission Into tho hospital, was somewhat con
fused In intellect, nnd that his own statement,
that ho was suiferlntr from tho effects of ex
cessive uso of bromides, Is very proably cor
rect. 3. That very soon after his admission ho be
gan to have hallucinations, to complain of
witches In his room, etc., and that soon after
that lecamo.so extremely noisy and violent as
to bo u causo of great annoyance aud alarm to
other patients.
a. That his friends were communicated with
and requested to remove him, ou the ground
tbat tho hospital has no facilities for treating
noisy and unruly patients, and that his friends
wero told that If thoy did not remove him It
would bo necessary to turn him over to tbo
police authorities; that thoso who nlaccd him
thero declined to tako tho responsibility of
taking chargo of him, and merely requested
that when ha was turned over to tho pollco
thoy should bo notllled.
4. Ills' vloleut condition continuing, with re
fusal to tako food and manifestations of
various delusions und hallucinations, pollco
headquarters wero communlcatod with, aud
ou tho request of tbo Kesldcut Physician of
tho Hospital, ho was scut away under tho
charge of two policemen.
5. That It Is believed that this action was
proper and wise under tho clrcumstaucos; that
ho could not bo kept lu thut hospital without
risk to himself and danger to other patients;
that It would havo been unwise uud iubiimauo
to havo allowed him to leavo tho hospital un
attended, and that his frieuds refusing to re
ceive hhn, tbo ouly courso was to turn him
over to tho police authorities for such disposal
as they might find oxpedlcut or necessary.
0. That when scon after his removal from
the station-house ho was still In a dazed, con
fused stato of mind, uncertain ns to what had
really happened, nnd ready to certify to al
most anythlug tbat was suggested to him; that
ho then admitted tbat ho could not say
whether his previous statements as to Ill-treatment,
etc., In tho hospital wero founded on
fact or not, and showed that a certain nmouiit
of deluslou was still porslsllnc,
7. That during his stay in tlio hospital ho
was kindly and properly treated, and that
no blanio attaches to the medical stuff, tbo
resident physician or to any nurso or emnloyo
of tho hospital lu connection with his cuso.
TUB MILK IN THE COCOANUT.
8. That tbo systematic attempt which sdems
to havo been made to Induce .Mr. Daniels to
certify to falso statements, to Injuro tho
reputation of tho hospital by sensational and
untitle accounts of tho caso, and to prejudice
tho Committee of Appropriations of tlio llouse
of Representatives, lu order to prevent tho
granting of tho usual appropriation is highly
discreditable to thoso concerned In It, and Is
utterly unwarranted either hy the facts of this
particular caso or by tho previous record of
tlio Garfield Hospital and tlio character and
slaudlug of thoso connected with Its matiago
mont. Dr. Ilutton said this morning that ho
thought that there hud boon 1111 attempt
to unduly magnify tho circtimstnuces of
Mr. Daniels' enso in order to mako a
sensational story, llo thought his action
was ontiroly proper, "I merely wroto 11
loiter and did not ovon uso tho word 'in
sanity.' By tho way," taking down hla
letter-bonk, "hero is a copy of tbo letter
I gavo to tlio pollceinnn who took Mr.
Daniels to tho stiitton-houso. I will read
it to you: Sanitary Oillco, District of Co

opinion, uuablo to tako onto of himself,

''You see, I don't chargo Mr. Daniols
with insanity, by any means. I Hhowed
that snmo letter to Mr. McGIll, tlio Port
reporter, who called on me, but ho didn't

Tho Supervising Architect r.xnlttlns
tho
Mitniifromuiit of II In Ontua.
Tho examination of Supervising Archi
tect Froret was continued yestordny in
tho room of tho Sonata Commlttco on
Public Buildings nnd Grounds. In tho in
vestigation of tho ofllco of tlo Supervis
ing Architect Mr. Frerot was wipportcd
by Mr. Maynard, Assistant Sccrctnry of
tho Treasury, nnd by a clerk with an
armful of papers. Senators Morrill,
Spooncr and Stanford wero present and
questioned Mr. Frerct closely about tho
custom of having plnns prepared outside
thonrcliltcct'Kolllcc.
Mr. Frcrot prosonlcd a letter written
by tho First Comptroller November 21
in rcsponso to n query mado hy him, lo
show that ho had authority In law for
lotting tlicso contracts. Ho said tlio ne
cessity for letting thorn out uroso in part
from tlio refusal of thu Secretary of tho
Treasury lo adopt his rocommeudntlon
that fifteen extra draughtsmen bo em
employed temporarily. There was a
great pressuro of work, ho said, nnd ho
wns ambitious to clear up the work In
his oillco beforo Congress should meet,
If possible. Tho plana, under this nr
rnugemont, were prepared within six
weeks tlmo and cost tho Government
thrco-quartcrs of 1 per cent, of tho
amount to bo expended on tlio building;
whereas under former arrangements it
hud often cost 5 per cent, and tlio pro
cess was very slow.
Thero was no competition between
architects for tho work. IIo told his
chief draughtsman, Mr. Van Erin, that
ho wanted a plan prepared, and Mr. A'un
Erta obtained tlio architect, who sub
mitted his plans for approval.
Ono of tlio advantages of giving out
tlio contracts for plnns here, Mr. Froret
snid. was thnt he could oxunilne thu pen
cil sketches nnd pass tinon t lcm beforo
the plans wero completed.
Mr. Spooncr suggested t int if tho
plans wero mado under Mr. '. 'rerct's su
pervision they might 03 well bo made in
his office, but Mr. Frerct replied that he
could got tho work dono moro cheaply
outside. 1
Mr. Spoonor inquired whether or not
tho employes of tho Supervising Archi
tect's Ofllco did work for tlio outside
architects preparing plans budor cou
tract. Mr. Froret replied that thoy did, and
that he thought It was n good -tiling for
tho Government that they did. Mr.Aran
Erta was now working out of hours on
two plans which had boon let by con
Irnct. J
Mr. Spooncr said that practically, then,
tho plans were bolng prepared by Gov
eminent employes, though tho contracts
wero let to others.
Mr. Frerct replied in tho nfUrmntlvo.
Iu explanation of tho clyil service
questions, prepared In his ofllec, Mr.
Frerct said that It was truo,;as stated,
that Commissioner Oborly had called at
his oflico and said that none of tbb
draughtsmen could answer them; but he
had shown the questions to draughtsmen
iu his ofllco who said, on llrst glance,
that thoy could answer them without
difficulty . Thero bad been but ono ap
pointment in tho ofllco under civil service
rules.
Mr. Frerct explained the ru-esonco of
his sou in tho oillco by snylpgUiat luj
had worked thero without pay for seven
or eight months and that, without his
knowledge, Assistant Seqrotury Thomp
son had given tho boy nn appointment
as confidential secretary to no Super
vising Architect. ,
Mr. Frcrot advocated strongly tho sys
tem of single contracts for public build
ings. At tho conclusion of tlio examination,
tlio committee clork was instructed to
send for the correspondence relating to tbo
selection of sites nud construction of
buildinus at Binghampton, N. Y., De
troit, Brooklyn, and Lowell, Mass. Mr.
Frerct will be recalled by tho commlttco
in a fow days.

knowledgo of tho extent of tho frightful
catastrophe can bo hnd. Tho remains of

was unearthed at 0 o'clock. Just at

Shortly nftor two o'clock this morning

Everybody with a plan for settling the
vexed question of tbo routes and ter
mini of tho B. & O. nnd 11. & P. rail
roads in this city had nn opportunity to
explain tlicni beforo Senators Faulkner
and Farwell of tlio District Committee.
Among thoso present wero AV. C. Dodge,
Professor Gallaudet, Father Donnelly,
S. O. Clark, S. AV. Cuiridon, Luring
Clinppel, A. Gutz. Malor S. 11. AValker,
M. DeLand, John It. Lynch, C. 11.
Church and M. Keim.
Mr. Dodge represented tho Citizens'
Association of Northwest AVnsliington.
Ho said ono of tho principal objects is to
havo the question finally 'sullied, He
furring to tho ineonvenionce oconslnnetl
by tho B. it O. lu his section ho said
that, Instead of a surface grade, ns re
quired by their charter, the tracks nro
so olcvalcd at points that thoy aro almost
impassible.
He submitted two propositions for a
chance of routes. Ono of those was to
allow' tho Baltimoro & Ohio o como
into tho city over tbo Eastern Branch aud
thcu run parallel with tho Pennsylvania
road to tho junction of Maryland anil
A'irglnia avomfes, where n union depot
should bd located. Another plan was to
require tho Baltimore & Ohio lo havo a
depot at Now York avenue and Bound
ary, and thence run it tunnel to tho North
ern Market, where another depot could
be erected.
Professor 15. M. Gallaudot submitted a
proposition to require tho Baltimore &
Ohio roatl to mako n connection nt ivy
City, on the Baltimoro lino, to some
point just north rif Ecklngton, nnd como
into tho city exclusively by tho Metropol
itan braueh. This plan, ho said, would
relieve a groat part of Northeast AVnsli
ington. This plan was indorsed by Mr.
Loring- Clinppel, S. AV. Curriden and
John It. Lynch.. Mr. Martin I. Wollor
protested against any plan being adopted
that would tunuel Capitol Hill.
Southwest AVashington was represented
by Father Donuelly and -Air. C. B.
Church. Father Donnelly said his sec
tion was now a veritnblo freight yard.
llo was opposed to a uuion depot ou
Maryland and Virginia avenues as sug
gested by Sir. Dodgo. IIo proposed that
thu tracks como Into tho city through
tho tunnel at tbo Navy Yard, tlienco
down Virginia nvontio to a point back
of thu Botanical Gardens, where a depot
should bo located, nnd tlienco for its
southern out race down Delaware nvcnuo
and 1C street to water front.
Mr. N. II. Shea advocated this plan.
Mr. 0. B. Church directed his remarks
principally ngainst surfneu tracks. He
thought an elovatod road should bo rnn
down K street to AVatur street, IIo was
also In favor of a depressed grado on
Maryland and Virginia avenues. Tho
members of the committee regretted that
thero was such a diversity of opinion
amotig the citizens us to what should bo
done. They stato that if some plan
could ho agreed upon it would greatly
facilitate, matters.

The jury in the caso of James G.
Tracy, charged with assault to kill, did
notagrco yesterday, and Judge Mont
gomery gavo them permission to return a
sealed verdict. Heretol'oro the custom
has been to call back tho officers and re
open tho court Into at night iu order to
take tho verdict. After an examination
of the authorities' on tho subject, Judgo
Montgomery reached tho conclusion that
this was not necessary, that a scaled ver
dict might bo taken In any caso less than
a felony. Tho Jury, howover, failed to
agrco, nnd Ayorp still in their consultation
room whon tho court wns opened this
morning.
Al noon tho jury camo In with their
