NOT YET QUALIFIED.
Mr. Freeniai fa Trenton Qnestiou
About Confirmation Other
The newly appointed Marsha', Dr.
Thomasj H. Yancey, of Somerville, was
expected in the city yesterday, but
bad not arrived at supper time. He
was at the Cuitom House Saturday,
but eaid he had not received any of
ficial notice of his appointment. It
appears tbat he baa never been an ap
plicant for the pos tion and that the
telegram announcing tbat his name
had been tent to the Senate by Presi
dent Cleveland was as much of a sur
prise to him as to any one else. All
who know him, and his acqua'ntance
is largo, speak of him in the mos' com
plimentary terms. Ex-MaBhal Free
man is in Trenton. His successor baa
not yet qualified, and it waa rumored
yesterday that several ric ques
tions had arisen regarding the
making of the appointment, which
would make the neoeesity for
his doing so at this time unnecessary.
It is said that the failure of the Senate
to conlii in him before its adjnurmient
either knocks him out al'ogether or at
least leavrs the cilice in Mit'shal Free
man's hands until he is cor tinned by
the Senme after it reafsemti.r s. One
