Mr. Win. 11. Webb, the new Commis
sioner of tlio District, entered upon the
duties of his new ollico to-dny. General
West, the retiring Commissioner, was at
his ollice ready to surrender to his succes
sor. Therowas a general (lUfjiensiou of
business during tlm morning1, and the
chiefs of all the departments ol tho Gov
ernment were on hand to pay their re
spects to llio retiring ai well as tho incom
General West wasl highly esteemed by
all of tlio District employes, mid bis retire
ment from ollico seemed to cast a tempo
rary gloom over many. There was a meet
ing ol the District employes in tho ollice of
the Assessor at 10 o'clock, which was at
tended by over fifty persons. Dr. William
Lindall, secretary to the board, c.iiied tlio
meeting (0 order. Mr. Ross Fish was
chosen chairman. A committee, composed
of Dr. Tiudall, Auditor Tiehenoraud Chief
Clerk Hock were appointed to draft suita
ble resolutions regarding tho retirement of
General West. The following resolutions
were drafted :
"Whereas tho term of ollico of Hon.
Joseph 11. West as a Commissioner of
tho District of Columbia has expired by
limitation of law, tho olliccrs and em
ployes of the District, assembled lo ex
press their sentiments upon his retirement
from ollice, hereby
"A'csovc, That tho District is thus de
prived of the services of a faithful and
painstaking administrator, whoso cllbrts
wcro always exerted in behalf of the
District'!) interests in general, and whose
zeal and ability greatly Increased t lie elli
cicney of those branches of the District
Government which were under his spe
"That the District employes lom a re
spected and considerate superior, who
ever manifested a sympathetic interest in
their welfare, and with whom (heir re
lations were uniformly of tio most
"That they assure linn ot their con
tinued L'ood-will and best wishes for his
future success and happiness."
Mr. Webb arrived at 11 o'clock and
was closeted with General West in his
ollico for a long time. He said lie
would take formal charge at 1 o'clock.
Shortly after noon General AVest noti
lied tho 'secretary that bo was at leisure,
and tho members of tho old board of
Commissioners and tho clerks and other
employes assembled in the Commissioners'
ollice. Major b'ish of the Assessor's of
fice presented the resolutions in an ad
dress expressive 01 1110 seniinienis 01
those employed in tho District buildings.
General West in acknowledging the
good wishes and kindly appreciation thus
expressed said: "The assemblage in tes
tifying their sentiments not only bore
witness to their regard for him, but their
very presence was testimony to their own
faithfulness as servants ol tho District
Government, for they were all well aware
that none but those who faithfully per
formed tho duties and executed tho trusts
committed to them as ollicers and em
ployes would be tolerated in IheDit.triet
Government under his administration
and that of the other Commissioners. In
conclusion ho said:
"Judgo a man by tho opinion of his as
sociates, by those who know him and are
acquainted with his daily walk and actions,
and when they testify their regard for
him, 1 care no! for tho opinion of those
outside it may go lo the winds. It is this
that has been a source of pleasure lo me
tliat those connected with mo in tho Gov
ernment have felt that esteem and con
fidence which has found expression in this
touching manner 011 my retirement."
At 1'i o'clock Commissioner Webb as
sumed control of tho ollice. His bonds
men are Judge A. It. llagncr and W. Ii.
Chace of tlio Treasury, .Republicans, and
Messrs. K. 11. White, Frank ITuiuo and S.
II. Walker, Democrats. After the cere
monies attending the departure olGen
eral West, Mr. Webb held a reception in
Ids ollico with the clerks. Tho duties of
the new Commissioner will be the same
those of Commissioner ost, which
were enumerated n Till! Cnrric yes
terday. Mr. Webb left his ollice at 1 o'clock and
said ho would not return for about one
week or ten days, He said that his nerv
ous system was in a bad Stale by over-
woru aim uie exciieiui'iit in nit inniuini
ment and needed rest.
Tho board was reorganized by electing
Mr. I'dmouds president pro tern.
II In I'll St Ac-t.
The Commissioners to-day tent a new
requisition to the Tieasury Depaitmentfor
$:tlH),000 in place of the one which the
Department refiued to honor recently.
Commissioner Webb, with the other mem
bers of the board, signed the leipiisitiou.
This was the first ollicial act of tho new
Commissioner. The money is necessary
for tho payment of work already
done, and unless the money is forth
coming pi city toon the District will be
embarrassed. The question raised by
tho Department was whether the com
missioners had a light to pay for work
performed during tho hist lieal year out
of this year's appropriation.

Honor Ireneo Par. is a native of Guadala
jara, capital of the western State of
Jalisco, that beautiful and fertile land to
which the Spaniards have given tho name
of the Andalusia of Mexico. He is slill
quilo a young man, a ready and brilliant
writer, a liberal in ideas, and a staunch
tupporler of every progressive movement
that has been initiated in Mexico during
Ids time. I To began life, it may he said, nt the
foot of the ladder, having had to depend
upon bis own exertions from early youth,
prison iuiiNT.o taz,
not only for his own intellectual advance
ment, but also for tho support of others
conlided to his care.
In 11 late issue of La 1'rensa Asocfoda
will be found a very interesting account
of the life of this brilliant Mexican
writer by Seuor J. do J. Garibay, from
which the following excerpts are" freely
translated: His life has been so full of
incidents, so rich in events, so replete
with adventure, that it might well nllbrd
subject-matter for numerous and varied
novels which would interest tho general
reader. Kndowed with brilliant talents,
and gifted with uncommon force of will,
lie has, wllliout extraneous assistance,
broken through a thousand vicissitudes',
until lie has reached an honorable posi
tion 111 society.
Whiloho is, personally, most genial and
afliiblu in manner, his pen is considered
0110 of the most incisive of Mexican
writers, llisslyleis. however, humorous
yet trenchant, nnd his wit is of the razor
type. hen lit! sets it to woi k on an
opponent it cuts keen and deep, leaving,
when it heels, no ugly sear for future re
membrance. Tho most memorable events in tho career
of Sr. Paz are closely identified with the
high patriotic aims and progressive ten
dencies of General Diaz, the actual Presi
dent of the Mexican Republic. In those
dark days of .Mexico's history when Diaz
was striving, in field and forum, lo subdue
tho mitiouated prejudices that had for gen
erations kept the people and the commerce
of Mexico away from their nearest neigh
bor the great Republic of the
North he found no wanner sup
porter, no abler advocate of the cau-o of
progress and civilization than Ireneo Paz,
who by bis pen, his eloquence and bis
sword has won the esteem of every pro
gressive mind in the idtcr republic.
Kditor at diU'ercnl times of more than a
dozen of papers in various parts of Mexico,
author of numerous novels, comedies and
other literary productions, Sr. Paz estab
lished in 1877 f.n J'alria, which is now
one of tlio most inlliicutial and important
dailies in Mexico. His writings in this
paper during the past eight years have ob
tained for him an inlluence which he
highly deserves among all intelligent and
progressive people, llo is alio a member
of the Mexican Congress.

General Grant's condition this morning is
no worse than it was last night, but hardly
better. Mrs. Grant, Colonel Grant, Dr.
Douglas and the nurse were at his side all
night fanning him. At about II a. 111. he
motioned for a lamp, which was brought
him, then lie wrote a note, occupying fully
five minutes. The note was addressed to
Dr. Douglas, and signed; but without at
tempting to read it tlio Doctor handed it to
Colonel Grant, the family having expressed
11 wish to Keep possession 01 everything ho
writes. Tlio Colonel read the note, kept
its contents to himself, folded it upnnd put
it in his pocket. After that tho General
sat half dozing until daylight.
Tho Doctor at fi o'clock telegraphed Dr.
Sands, not in tho hope of obtaining any as
sistance, but that nothing might hcomittcd
in tlio last hours. Two hours Inter tin;
answer anno that Dr. Sands had started
for Mount McGregor. Dr. Douglass tried
to give the General nourishment early this
morning. Tho General expressed 11 de
sire for food, but his throat refused to act.
The food flowed from tho mouth as fast as
ho tried to swallow. After this attempt,
and while tho Doctor was ntbreakfast, the
General roused sullieiently to take a few
swallows and then sunk back in his chair.
Rev. Dr. Nownian, who has been with
him two hours this morning, said at 10:."0
o'clock, on leaving him that ho was ex
tremely weak, and could not then swallow,
yet ho diil not wholly despair. Dr.
Douglas has no hope of his livingtlirougli

9 a. in. General Grant still remains in
an extremely weakened condition, and Dr.
Douglass gives it as his opinion that the
General cannot survive beyond the dnv.
Tlio patient, wjth great effort, succeeded hi
swallowing some liquid nourishment this
morning, but without any apparent reviv
ing ellect. The -members of the family
were astir early and seem to realize that
tho end is near. Dr. Douglass this morn
ing telegraphed Dr. Sands, hastily sum
moning him to the cottage.
