able to-morrow was freely sold at 35. In the
loan crowd the stock was the main attrac
tion and 1 per cent at $100 for every 100 shares
was bid for its use until to-morrow. Neither
side expressed much confidence in the result,
b'lt the heavy buying was apparently on

| goii Transcontinental. St. l'aul. Lackawanna
I and Chicago Gas were the only really active
! shares, and by far the greater portion of the
i interest in the dealings was concentrated in
tlie first named in which the contest was still
at its height and the stock was strong, although
; its advance was small. The feature of the
? dealings, however, was the large number of
j cash sales which were made at tirst at J4a% per
I cent premium over the regular way, but this
| difference was afterward decreased to % per
cent. Sales seller three days were also made
l'i per cent below the market. The general
market was firm but quite feverish in the early
trading, but fractional gains were made ail
through the list, and Chicago Gas. which dis
played most strength, rose % per cent, but the
market toward the end of the hour became
more quiet and prices dropped. The firmness
reappeared, however, and at 11 o'clock the
market was quiet to dull, but firm and gener
ally at small fractions better than the opening
prices.

play all by youf-self. Why don't you go in and
play with the other children?" ~-*A the poet.

TWO NEW COMMISSIONERS.
John W. Douglass and L. G. Hine.
APPOINTMENTS MADE TO-DAY.
The Men who Will Succeed Messrs.
Webb and Whestlfy.
THEIR SAXES AN!?OC*CED LATE THIS AFTEB
JfOOS?SKETCHES OF THE CAREERS OT THE TWO
APPOINTEES?THEIR RESIDENCE I* WASHINGTON
This afternoon, just before 3 o'clock, the
President announced the appointment of John
W. Douglass and Lemon G. Hine to be Com
missioners of the District of Columbia to suc
ceed Messrs. Webb and Wheatley.
SKETCH or MR. J. W. DOfOI.ASS.
In the person of Mr. J. W. Douglass the Dis
trict secures for one of its governors a man of
strong character, acknowledged executive
ability, unassuming personal manners,
and ' a thorough acquaintance with
District matters and the
needs of the people. He
is a little more elderly
in appearance than he
is represnted to be by
the accompanviug cut,
which was made from a
photograph taken sev
eral years ago. He was
born in Philadelphia,
but whi n he was ten
years old his parents
movt d to Erie. Ta.,
where he received his
education, graduating
'from the Erie Academy,
i He then entered the law
^ office of the Hon. Jas.
? Thompson, late chief
... docgi.ahs. justice of Pennsylvania,
and was admitted to the bar of Erie in 1851. The
voung man took a great interest in the polit
ical questions that were then beginning to
make the air quiver with possibilities,
espousing the republican cause, to whicn he
has clung ever since. When the great cam
paign of I860 was begun Mr. Douglass wan in
the front rank of the Erie republicans, and did
yeoman service in aid of the election of President
Lincoln. He was rewarded for this good work
bv an appointment as collector of internal rev
enue for the nineteenth district of Pennsylva
nia, with headquarters at Erie, in 1861. when
the internal revenue system was adopted.
He held that position until 1869, when his
zeal and energy were recognized and he was
made first depntv commissioner of internal
revenue. In 1871 ho was appointed commis
sioner of the bureau, and served four
vears, retiring in May, 1875, U> be
gin the practice of law in this city
with Judge Williams, who was Attorney-Gen
eral under President Grant. During his term
at the head of the bureau Mr. Douglass insti
tuted an important reform, abolishing the
offices of assessor and assistant
assessor throughout the country
dividing their duties between the
various deputy collectors and an assessment
division which he established in the office here,
and which is still in operation. This change
made a reduction in the annual expenses of col
lecting the revenue of about s 1,500.000, and in
the actual force employed of about 1,500
people.
Since May, 1875, he has resided in this city,
engaged in the practice of law before the dif
ferent courts of the District, the executive de
partments, the Court of Claims, and the United
States Supreme Court. Ho regards himself as
a citizen of Washington exclusively, and is
is deeply interested in every question affecting
the welfare of the people of the District. Mr.
Douglass is a near neighbor of Mr. Webb, his
predecessor, whom he knows intimately.
A SKETCH OF MR. HINE.
Mr. Lemon G. Hine, who will succeed Mr.
Wheatley as the democratic member of the board
of Commissioners is a well-knowu lawyer of
this city. He iB now about fifty-four years
age, and is a native of Ohio, having been born
near Toledo. He is a graduate of Oberlin col
lege, and studied law at Ann Arbor, Mich., where
he commenced the practice of his profession.
When the war broke out he left hispractice, as
also his young wife and
child, and. enlisting in
an Ohio regiment,
served in the west until
the close of hostilities.
A few months after (in
1865) he came to this
city and took up his
residence in South
Washington. Ho form
ed a legal partnership
with ex-Gov. Ford, of
Ohio, and for a num
ber of years was the
junior member of the
firm of Ford A Hine.
During this time he be
became quite popular
in his section and was
elected to the councils l. o. hine.
several terms. He was an independent candi
date for delegate to Congress from th%
District during the days of the
territorial government against Gen. Nor
ton P. Chipmau, republican, by whom he was
defeated. His legal practice became very
large, and ill 1875 and 1876 he led the entire
bar in the number of cases on the docket. He
about that time took Mr. Sidney T. Thomas
into partnership, and the firm of Hine A
Thomas was for many years one of the most
successful in the legal profession here. Some
four or fivo vears ago he became interested
in patents applic able to typesetting by ma
chinery. and iu 1887 he retired from active
practice to take the position of president of the
National Typographic association. Mr. Hine
resides with his family, a wife and six children,
on Lincoln avenue on the Glenwood road, just
north of the city limits, and his affable man
ners and genial disposition have won for him
the friendship of his neighbors generally as
well as that of the residents of other localities.
Mr. Hine. who is in New York, is expected
here to-morrow.
LEADERS OF THE REICHSTAG.
Picturesque Groups of Statesmen -Bls
murk's Great Adversary.
From the Londou Globe.
A contributor to "L'lllustration" has re
cently in a series of articles given an interest
ing account of the interior of the German par
liament. Speaking of its general appearance,
he says, in a moderately sized room are gath
ered specimens of all the various races of Great
Germany; tho Bavarians and the monumental
Rhinelanders with beards a la Lohengrin; the
pure-bred Prussians, squat and smug like
Richter, who keep by themselves, and pass
without looking either to right or to left; the
gentlemen from Silesia, big and bony, with
blazing-red beard and the air of an aldermanic
captain of militia, or of an English yeoman, foe
of foxes, and officer of volunteers. There is no
lack of uniforms in the group, and no lack of
overcoats folded and held on the aim?over
coats bourgeois, bureaucratic and professorial.
Still more numerous are the collarless ecclesi
astical coats, worn alike by Protestant pastors
and members of the Catholic center. The
members for the conquered provinces are con
spicuous spots in this crowd. Antoine, despite
his great military mustachios, would not be
taken by the groenest or most short-sighted re
porter for a captain of the landwehr. and the
Parisian vest of young Baron Zorn, of Bulach,
is iu sharp contrast with that of his brother
sporUmen of Brandenburg or the Vieille
Marche. ? .. .
Tho personal portraits are all exceedingly
good, though there is nothing new said about
Prince Bismarck and others, who have been
described ad nauseam; but the following de
scription of Herr Windthorst is clever and life
like: The figure of a gnome, the long neck of a
child, great blue spectacles which shelter the
remains of used-up eyes, a large mouth with a
satiricle twist. Such is Herr Windthorst. the
pearl of his party, the most redoubtable parlia
mentary tactician, the only adversary Prince
Bismarck has been unable to overcome, and
with whom he has often had to treat on equal
terms. He is not a thunderbolt of eloquence.
From his toothless gums comes a feeble voice,
which would not be able to travel past the
tribune or ths bench from which he speaks
were it not that the insatiable curiosity which
this resourceful spirit provokes establishes ia
the assembly a perfect silence as soou as he
arises. The skill and irony which at each step
I shine in his oratory make every one forget that
this thickset little man, with his wooden voice
and monotonous gesture, is the very opposite
of an orator. It is his mind which has held
together for eighteen years without visible
change, and even after the religious peace, that
paradoxical Catholic party built of elements so
Mterogeneous?great conservative and feudal
lords, little clergy with democratic tendencies,
and socialists. _

A List ?r the President's Caller* this
Afternoon.
In addition to the White House visitors men
tioned on the first page of The Stab the fol
lowing called:
Gen. Ju. A. Ekin (retired). U. & A., brought
with him another Kentuckian. John L. Wheat,
of Louis-iille. They apologised for call
ing. but gave as the cause a rumor
which stated that the collectorship of
the fifth Kentucky district hud been
given away to some man whom thev did not
want to get it. While they were ua. however,
they aaid a few words in behalf of John L.
Wheat. who is a candidate for the survivorship
of customs at I<ouisville.
Samuel C. Elliott was the only other Ken
tucky n who called.
F. D. Lee. a colored Virginia lawyer and one
of the dtlegHtea to the lart Chicago convention,

hia ?tat^. and he talked to the President about
it; he Was pleased with his reception.
AMERICAN AND ITALIA)! OPr.B*
met on common ground this morniug. H. K.
Thurber represented the former, while B. W.
Cioldberg w?s the latter*s victim. Both have
lost moaey in the business, but Mr. Goldberg
is the only one who wants the l'nite4 states
to recoup him for his losses by giving him a
pla<e. He is an extensive linguist, and he
probably tried another lahguago on the Presi
dent this tuorhing, although bis English is
not really bad. If he can only be consul-gen
eral at Berlin he will nfcver attempt to tram a
chorus again. Mr. Thurber only wanted to pay
his respects.

THE SECOND COXTBOLLERSHIP OF THE 1BEA?UBT.
Rumor hag it now that B. F. Gilkeson will be
appointed second controller to-day or
to-morrow. Mr. Gilkeson was the Penn
sylvania who was displaced as solicitor
of internal revenue by Mr. Alphonso Hart, of
Ohio. He was talked of for a Florida
jugdeship, but it is said that the
Floridians have agreed to abstain from
disagreeing, and the probabilities point to the
elevation of Mr. Swayue, of Kissimee, to the
bench in the United States court.
REV. DK. LEONARD'S ELECTION.
Not Decided Whether to Accept the
Position of Assistant Bishop.
Rev. Dr. Leonard, of 8t. John's church, re
ceived a telegram this morning from
the 72d annual convention of the
Episcopal diocese of Ohio, meeting in
Toledo, notifying him that he had been elected
assistant bishop of the diocese. In case
the resignation of Bishop Bedell
is accepted by the house of
Bishops Dr. Leonard would succeed
him. To a Star reporter this after
noon Dr. Leonard said that he
had come to no conclusion whatever in
the lustter as yet. He expects that a
committee from the convention will
wait on him within a few days and then they
will talk over the matter. But until then
he can state nothing definitely regarding bis
action in the matter. He would give no
intimation as to his leaning in the case, saying,
with a smile, that be had no leaning at pres
ent.

A Naval Examination.
From Ocean.
Rear-Admiral Stewart used to relate the fol
lowing anecdote?the incident occurred during
the examination of Capt Tatnall: Tatnall?
then Midshipman Tatnall. and a very modest,
retiring young gentleman?was ordered up to
be overhauled, when the following dialogue
between a rough, jolly old commodore, the
senior officer present, and himself occurred,
vis:
Commodore?"Mr. Tatnall. what would be
your course, suppossing you were off a lee
shore. the wind blowing a gale, both anchors
and your rudder gone, all your canvas carried
away, and your ship scudding rapidly toward
the breakers?"
"I oannot conceive, sir, that such a combina
tion of disasters Could possibly befall a ship in
one voyage."
Commodore?"Tut, tut. young gentleman,"
said the sea-dog. severely, "we must hare your
opinion. Suppose such a case to have actually
occurred."
Tatnall?"Well, sir, sails all carried away,
did you sav, sir?"
Commodore?"Aye, all; every rag."
Tatnall?"Anchors gone, sir?*
Commodore?"Aye, not an uncommon ease."
Tatnall?"No rudder either?"
Commodore?"Aye, rudder unshipped."
Here the young officer drooped his head de
?pond: ngl.v upon his breast, and the "old salt"
continued sharply: "Come, sir, what wouldyoa
do with your ship?*'
Tatnall (raising his head)?"I'd 1st he go to
, sir, where she Out to go."
Commodore?"Right, air, right. Mr. deck,
enroll Mr. Tatnall as a passed midshipman."
