WHAT POSTMASTER APUF.ON SAVE.
When tho news was rccolved of tho ap
pointment of Mr. I. Parker Veazey as post
master of Baltimore, Colonel Adroon was
asked if he had been informed of it, and
replied : '"Not officially. It may bo so, If
Postniastor-Gencral Vilas says so. But this
70U may say : I nevor saw Postmaster
Goneral Vilas upon tho matter of bolng re
tained, and nover filed au application with
Iilm for rcappointmout. I am very glad it
is settled, but am uttorly surprised at tho
position tho President has takou, as it bo
lies every utterance of his on civll-sorvlca,
and I am now well satisfied of tbo opinions
and expressions of the proisand public that
tho appointment of tho postmaster at Now
York waB the payment of a political dobt,
and tho more so since looking ovor my
papers. I consldor I ought to speak of this
matter sluco I bad placed considerable faith
in the utterances of the Prosidenl, and on
New Year's I pi in ted his letter to Goorge
William Curtis on clvil-iervlco, and gavo
it to the mon to cheer tbem up. If civil
servlco is to bo earned out by hirn faith
fully, I cannot sco any reason why al
though I was not eager and anxious for it
a reappointment should not bo tondcied
to me, because of tbo system of tbo office
und Its good condition, ai testified to by all
classosof citizens. I have tho direct proof
that tho leappolntuiout of Pearson was a
roward for political services by bis frlouds
to Cleveland. I will clvo It to tbo pross Iu
a few days, aud it will bo satisfactory.''
It has beon doclded that the rule requir

present Secretary and Treasurer to force

New York, and leas of that class of money
will bo usod for tbo present in other cltl(H.

TnE DISTINCT M AKSHALSHIP.
Tho candidates for tho District Marshal
ship are unhappy. They say that the mat

deserves aud are not pleased at tho way in
which they aro handicapped In their ef
forts to strengthen their cases. Tbo papers
are believed to bo all iu. Tbo Presldeut
has fiom the first Invited everybody to file
all the 1 apors they pleased. The applica

docketed and filed. Tbo Presldont has soon
tbem aud the Altoinoy-General has seen
them, but they are in tho possession of tho

the dust is gathering ou them. The Presi

up tbo papers some time when ho has lei
sure, and will pick out tho ram who ap
peals tu bo tho choice of the resldonts of
Washington. Tho Attornoy-Goneral was
a&kcd to look over tho papers and roport
who this enviable individual was.
He returned ' tbo documents without
a recommendation, Ho was uuablo todo
tciiniiie from tbo papers who was tbo most
popular man. Mr. Cleveland told a dele
gation of business mon several weeks ago
that ho had two objects to serve in solocting
a malstiai first toplcaso tbo poople of Wash
ington and second to plcaso himself. The
(car among tbo applicants now is that tho
contention and rivalry over tho position
will lead tho President to the conclusion
that he cannot find out who is tho choice of
the ucoplo and compel him to make the
selection solely with roference to his own
prefoieucesaud views.as to the most avail
able man. Tho candidates sitythat there
are not more tbau three or four applicants
who arc at all formidable.
