"Washington, March 10. No greater
contrast between two days could be imag
ined than between last Sunday and to-day.
A profound calm appeared to have settled
even en the most active of the politicians.
It was known that a large batch of nomina
tions would probably be sent into the Sen
ate to-morrow, and there was a lull in the
wire-pulling, that some indication might be
got of the way the cat has jumped in the
higher offices, that better knowledge of the
effort necessary to rake in the lower ones
might be gained. The bar-rooms were tight
closed, the hotel lobbies were as quiet as at
ordinary times and few of the celebrities
who have monopolized the prominent cor
ners since Monday could be seen.
The President had the first day of rest of
his term. He began to shut off the crowd of
visitors yesterday and gave notice that he
would receive no callers to-day.
Quay Removes Bis Doorbell.
Many of the Senators and members of the
House who are supposedto have -influence
with the President and who have therefore
been harassed by applicants for office, were
not' at home to callers. At the residence of
Senator Quay, heroic measures were taken
to preserve the proper solitude of Sunday,
ior to all but the earliest callers there was
apparently no means of attracting the at
tention of anyone in the house, as the knob
of the doorbell had been taken off and the
handle drawn within the hall so that it
could not be reached by the fingers of the
most persistent officeseeker unless he had
'As to the nominations that will be sent to
the Senate to-morrow, almost nothing is
known. It is supposed that they will be
mostly confined to the higher offices of the

Brooklyn, says his name will be sent in for

It is not believed now that any of the old

(SPECIAL TELECKAM TO TUB DISPATCH.!
"Washington, March 10. One oi the
earliest oppointments to be made by Presi
dent Harrison will be that of General
Superintendent of the Railway Mail Service.
There are several applicants, and they have
received word, in an unofficial way, that
one of the first official acts of Postmaster.
General "Wanamaker will be the reorganiza
tion of this important branch of the Govern
ment work. The man with the most back
ing is Paul VanDervoort, of Omaha, ex-Commander-in-chief
of the Grand Army of
the Republic He has, it is understood, the
indorsement of the delegations from
Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan, in
addition to that of General Alger and many
prominent Grand Army men.
VanDervoort was formerly chief clerk
of the railway mail service, stationed at
Omaha. He was removed by Postmaster
General Gresham for alleged insubordina
tion and neglect of duty. VanDervoort's
friends say that his removal was an act of
great injustice, and that in view of the cir
cumstances it reflects no discredit on him.
His opponents, however, will make the besj
possible use of the letter of removal, which
is a long and somewhat severe one, and it
has already been brought to the attention
of Postmaster General "Wanamaker.
The man most prominently mentioned for
the appointment by people in the depart
ment is John Jameson, who was the General
Superintendent under the Arthur adminis
tration. After the Democrats came in,
Jameson was retained for more thon a year,
and then removed by Mr. Yilas without
even one day's leave of absence. Jameson
is formerly from "Wisconsin, bnt Know a
resident of New York city. He has. been in
"Washington for a week, and a few days ago
had a long talk with Postmaster General
It-is absolutely necessary-that a General
Superintendent be appointed very soon, as
the present official, from motives of deli
cacy, has done nothing since March 4 but
the merest routine work, and the business
of the service is becoming badly delayed.
Next Friday, March 15, is the day fixed for
putting into effect the order placing the en
tire railway mail service, under the opera
tions of the civil service law, "but the order
will not be acted upon at present. The time
will be extended, probably to the end of the
fiscal year, to allow the President and Post
master General to reorganize the service,
which they think is badly demoralized.
The present Superintendent, "W. L. Ban
croft, is a Michigan Democrat, and has
from the first been violently opposed to
placing the bureau under the civil service
law. It is owing chiefly to his exertions
that the operation of the order of President
Cleveland has been several times postponed
and the Civil Service Commission prevented
from taking charge of the appointments.
The successor of Louis K. Church, Gov
ernor of Dakota, will be H. C. Mellette, a
Dakota man. The nomination will go iu

A SAD LACK OF TASTE.
The Cheerless Condition of fhcWhllc House
Suggests a Needed Improvement.
ISrECIAL TZLEGIIAM TO THE DISrjLTCIt.l
Washington, March 10. A New York
society, woman, who visited the White House
yesterday for the first time, made this crit
icism: "There have been volumes written
about the necessity of a new Executive
Mansion, but leavinc that question for the
future to solve, there could be much done to
improve the interior of the present build
ing, which is furnished much after the
fashion of a hotel, though inferior in its
furnishings to some of the first-class hostel
ries, and has the same cold, chilly look that
one always finds in the parlors of even the
handsomest hotels. It seems strange and
beyond belief that withithe treasury burst
ing with money, and with the artistic
taste that we as a nation,possess above all
others, our President's home is permitted to
remain in its present cheerless state. With
the exception of a few mediocre portraits,
the walls are bare, and there is an entire
absence of bric-a-brac: in fact, the suit on
the first floor, to which the people are ad
mitted, has much the appearance of being
emptied of all portable objects, so that there
might be no temptation to the good citizens
of the United States to petty pilfering.
"The Executive Mansion, above all
other, buildings, should show the nation's
taste and refinement. Its walls could and
should be filled with beautiful paintings
and etchings, and handsome .tables and
cabinets should be loaded with bric-a-brac
on which no duty has been paid, because it
is the work of American hands. It might
not be a bad idea for each big city of the
Union to furnish a room with the" things
that each is especially noted for. if this is
the only way in which the home of the
President of "more than CO.000,000 people
can be made worthy of him and them."

Washington, March 10. President
Harrison has enjoyed his first day's rest
since the inauguration. He couldn't es
cape from the politicians last Sunday, but
to-day visitors haven't attempted to invade
the White House, and the inmates have
been left to themselves. The President and
Mrs. Harrison and Mr. and Mrs. Enssell
rHarrison attended service at tbe new Pres
byterian Church of the Covenant this morn-
ing. Their coming hadn't been announced,
and many members of thercong'regation
were not aware ot jtheir presence until the
service was ended. A pew had been re
served for the Harrisons near the center of
the church, on the middle aisle.
The pastor,, the Rev. Dr. Hamlin,
preached, from the text: "He that hath"
seen me hath seen the father." In hisopen?

administration, and prayed that the people
might be. swifter to commend' than to criti

The members of the Legislature are being

Hakkisbtjeo, March 10. !'It seems to
me," remarked Hon. Henry Hall, ot Mer
cer, the other day, "that all I have done to
day is look over petitions for office and sign
such as I cared to. They're thicker than
requests for bird books."
That is what all the Bepublican members
of the House and Senate may. truthfully say
now at any time. Candidates were early in
the field and the influence of legislators was
sought from the start. The new members at
first felt some pleasure in the novel ex
perience. Now they are heartily sick of it.
Their mail has steadily swelled and keeps
on swelling until the business of the two
legislative postoffices is something to be
proud of, from a postmaster's standpoint.
The bulk of tbe letters and petitions are,
of course, from men who want fourth-class
postoffices, and candidates seem to be out
hot-footed all orer the State for them.
"Every cross roads in my county," said
Eepresentative Lytle, of Huntingdon, "has
its candidates for a fourth class postoffice.
I don't see why they should bother members
of the Legislature. "We cannot get them

This, of course, is a source .of regret to

local factional fights to supply several dis
tricts with material for discontent, was here
just before the inauguration on his way to
Washington, and looked worried.
He is making a conscientious effort to
straighten things out and restore harmony
in his district, but it is uphill work.. Had
Cleveland been elected the task would have
been easier, but with all the offices in sight,
and a number of determined aspirants for
each oi them, all with a backing ot more or
less determined friends, the task is not an
enviable one. Of course a Congressman
may always have before him the thought
that the more difficult -the task the greater
the glory in case of success.

Philadelphia, March 10. The Bev.
I. W Bagley, pastor of the Tabernacle
Baptist Church .of Camden, is very glad
that he has a stalwart father-in-law, .and
that he himself is something of a mnscu
lar Christian. When Mr. Bagley on Friday
afternoon united in bonds of holy matrimony
George S. Moyer, of Boxborough, and
Lillian M. Schall, of Manayunk, he little
thought that in ess than 36 hours an irate
elder brother of the groom would cross his
threshold, accompanied by an equally irate
friend and a blackjack, to ask for an ex
planation, and that it all would end in a
That was the way it did end, and as a re

both swore thetwebe of age.
It. was in the middle of Friday afternoon
that the bride and groom waited on Mr.
Bagley. In their sworn affidavit the groom
said he was 21 on March 22, 1888. and the
bride said she was 21 on May 2, 1888.
Mr. Bagley was alone in his study on the
second floor of his residence, 108 Broadway,
which is also the residence of his father-in-law.
At 1 o'clockon Saturday night two
young men were ushered upstair.
"Did you marry my brother according to
this notice?" asked young Mover, showing
the printed notice in a Saturday morning
newspaper. Mr. Bagley didn't answer, and,
as he looked his visitors over, he saw that
the brother was a strong, handsome young
man, with a dark mustache, about 27 years
of age, and that his friend was a year or
two younger, and also with a mustache.
Mr. Bagley still refused to give any satis
factory reply, and young Moyer was angry.
He said that he knew the marriage was
legal, but that wasn't what he wanted. Mr.
Bagley then ordered him from the room.
THE BOTV BEGINS IN EABNEST.
.Mr.JjeathwaiteJiad.come in by. this time,
and was upstairs: Mr. Mdyer followed Mr.
Bagley, the.fjend. followed him, and Mr.
Leathwaiteicame last. At .the. foot of the
stairs Mr. ,Bagley'says Mr. Moyer made a
pass to hit him; -but the latter says it was
the other way. The father-in-law warded
off the blow. The friend, so Mr. Bagley
says, took a blackjack from his pocket and
struck Mr. Leathwaite on the head,
Then Mr. Bagley took a muscular hand.
He smote that friend once, he smote him
twice, and he. smote him thrice. It was a
knock down plow each time.
Meanwhile; '.Mr. Leathwaite and Mr.
Moyer were "haying it hot on the" floor of the
dining room." while the preacher and the
friend were going; at it in the parlor. Soon
a parlor stand with a portable gas jet on it
was upset and broken, and Mr. Bagley left
his man to stop the house from catching
fire. Thcfnend ran out and got away.
Mr. Moyer also ran out, but Mr. Leath
waite Phased him. A crowd had gathered,
and eight or ten men gave chase and cap
tured the fleeing man.
aiOTEK ESCAPED LUCKILY.
Mr. Bagley said to-night that it was
lucky for Mr.'Moyer that the citizens joined
in it, for if they hadn't Mr". Moyer might
havejeceived injuries that might have re
sulted in the gravest wav, for Mr. Leath
waite was furiously mad, and he is said to
be-one of the most " muscnlar men in South
ern New Jersey.
An officer came up, and the scene ad
journed to the City Hall, where Mr. Bagley
and Mr. Leathwaite preferred charges of
aggravated assault against the prisoner.
Chief Dodd was also given the name of the
man who- escaped, and who lives in this
city, and he told Mr. Bagley that he ex
pected to arrest him to-night. A hearing
will be grauted to-morrow morning.
Mr. Bagley has been for eight years one
of Camden's famons marrying preachers.
The prisoner is a bookkeeper and so is his
father. The objection to the marriage on
the part of the groom's family is said to be
social inequality. The bride is said to be a
mill girl of Manayunk.

of the Senate resolution, and asking for the
policy of the managers on the subject, and
theiranswers accompany the Commissioners'
response. The replies show, in a great ma
jority of case's, that no discrimination is
made, but several are either not so clear, or
admit that colored applicants are not ad

Asylum writes to the Commissioners that
there is nothing in tbe constitution or regu

crawling through the brnsh took refuge in
the mouth of a sleeping geyser. He heard
the piteons groans and begging of the for
eigners, mingled with the yelling of thered '
skins. The latter proceeded with the mur
ders, and killed old Gerot just as the sun -:
was rising. The slaughter was most brutal.
Wound after wound was inflicted before
the death shot was given. No body con- v

seemed slightly demented when relating the
