Washington, March 1C This IjoIiib
cabinet day there was not the usual
rush of visitors at the while house.
Among tlu early callers were Senator
Penrose and ltepresentatlves Council,
Kulp, JJittlcr, Davenport, Olmstend,
Hicks and Kobblns, of Pennsylvania.
Senator JVniose today again present
ed Chuiiemnnge Tower to the president
for an ambassadorship and urged lita
speedy api)olntment. The fact that the
ainbassndois to England and Fiance
were nominated today and those to (ler
niar.y and Italy withheld is regarded as
an Indication that the president has
not yet lully made up his mind as to
whom to appoint to the remaining two
big missions. It Is generally believed
however that Air. Tower, if he gets any
thing, will have to be content with
something smaller. Up to dale, Penn
sylvania has no other applicants for
ambassadorship, and as far as known
the Keystone state delegation will not
present anybody elre.
Dr. Murdoch, of Pittsburg, who is a
candidate lor consul to Belfast, today
called on the president and filed his
papers. This post Is now held by Kdi
lor Taney, of the Wheeling Register.
.John J. Piatt, of Cincinnati, a relative
of the late Don Piatt, Is also a can
didate for that position. lie was con
sul to Dublin under the Harrison ad
ministration. Dr. Murdoclc is endorsed by Senators
Quay and Penrose and the majority of
the members of congress from Pennsyl
vania as well as the leading citizens of
Pittsburg and Philadelphia. He is an
old acquaintance of the president and
believes that he will be appointed.
CANDIDATE FOPv XUltEMllERG,
Uev. 15. Jl. Zimmerman, of Jeanetto,
Pa., a candidate' for consul to Nurem
berg, was presented to the president to
day by Senator Penrose and Represen
tative Itobblns. He tiled his papers
with the secretary to the president. Dr.
Pitcalrn, of llarrlsburg, who Is a can
didate for consul to Dresden, Germany,
has two opponents fiom his own state.
They are both from Pittsburg. Their
names are A. G. llutry and ex-General
Western Fi eight Ayent Cole, of the
Philadelphia and Heading railroad.
Representative Kulp presented the
application of 1,. T. Uohrbach, ot North
umberland county, to be collector of
internal revenue of the Twelfth district.
It Is believed that Representative Con
nell, of Scranton, will have the nam
ing of the collector for that district.
Mr. Connell's visit to the president to
day was of a social nature. He will talk
business later on.
John Russell Young is said to be
slated for the ministership to China,
which post lie tilled during Grant's sec
ond administration. His principal op
ponent is ex-Secretary of State John
W. Foster. Representative Hicks to

retary Miss W. A. Hammond, of Altoo
na, who is an applicant for assistant
secretary of the inteiior. Secretary
Rllss promised to give air. Hammond's
application careful consideration.
State Senator Chris Mageo arrived
here this evening from Harrisburg to
meet some friends from North Dakota.
He expects to leturn to the state cap
itol early tomorrow morning without
calling on the president.
PENSION BILL PASSED.
Other Business Transacted at Regu
lar Sessions Vesteulay.
Washington, March 1C In the senate
today one pension bill was passed, and
several bundled bills, public and pri
Mite, were Introduced and referred.
There was hardly one of them which
had not been on the calendar or on
committee Hies in the last congress.
When Mr. Allison, of Iowa, In gentle
remonstrance against the passage of
the one pension bill ($r,0 a month to the
widow of General John 13. Stevenson)
suggested that Its passage today would
not expedite Us becoming law, and when
Mr. Vest, of Mlssouil, expressed his
belief that It would, and that he could
get action on It In the house, the Iowa
senator looked incredulous and express
ed Ills great admiration for the Mis
souri senator's counUunije.
In connection with the extension of
civil service rules to the construction
of public works In chaige of the engi
neer department of the army, Air. l'rye,
of Maine, referred to those rules as "an
awful outrage" and as "absolutely ab
surd and stupid."
The senate spent over two hours to
day In the discussion of the credentials
of John A. Henderson, appointed by the
governor of Florida to till the vacancy
caused by the expiration of the term
of Senator Call.
An effort was made by Mr. Pascoe, of
Florida, to have Mr. Henderson admit
ted to the seat, but It was resisted
on both sides of the chamber as incon
sistent with the action of the senate a
few years ago In refusing seats to ap
pointees of the governois of Wyoming,
Montana ami Washington. Finally Mr.
Puscne yielded and permitted the matter
to bo referred, as were the like cases
this session fiom Kentucky and Oregon,
to the committee on privilege and
election. At 2.110 p, in. the senate ad
journed till Thursday.
The president today gent to the sen
ate the following appointments;
To be ambassadors extraordinary and
plenipotentiary of the United Slates:

Washington, March 1C Representa
tive Overslreet, Indiana, acting In behalf
of the International Typographical
union, presented to the president today
a protest against the appointment of
Colonel Hai risen Gray Otis, of Cali
fornia, as assistant secretary of war.
Representative Overstreet resides In In
dlatnpolls, where the International
union has Its headquarters. The pro
test was made on the ground that Col
onel Otis Is opposed to organized labor
and now employs non-union printers oi
his newspaper. No Intimation of the
Intention legnrdlng Colunel Otis was
made by the president.
Senator Penrose, of Pennsylvania,
headed a number of congiessinen of his
state who wanted to talk over appoint
ment applications of constituents. Rep
resentative Arnold and Senator Penrose
endorsed W. Irvln Shaw, of Clearfield,
Pa., for consul at Bordeau, France.
The President and Secretary of State
Will Subscribe to the Document.
Good Peeling Prevails.
Washington. March 16. There Is every
Indication of a much freer Interchange
of views and of confidences between the
state department and the committee cm
foreign relations of the senate since
the advent of the new administration.
The visit of Secretary Sherman to the
capltol this afternoon was entirely un
expected and the first that was known
of his visit was when, after his lunch,
a messenger informed Chairman Davis
that Mr. Sheiinan was at the committee
room. An Impromptu meeting was
called and for an hour the committee
and the new secretary of state conferred
about our relations with other powers.
Mr. Sherman was naturally anxious
to know what headway had been made
with the arbitration treaty and when
he was told that It was expected to
make a favorable report tomorrow the
secretary expressed his pleasure. It is
well known that President McKinley
and his secretary subscribe to the
tieaty and the purposes for which it
was negotiated, but believe that It
should be amended In some particulars.
Secretary Sherman expressed his satis
faction at the determination which had
been reached by the committee to leuve
the scope of the treaty untouched, but
to make such changes in Its administra
tive feature as would leave in the act
the treaty-making power of the Uni
ted States. This Is to be accomplished
by an amendment providing that all
questions to be submitted for arbitra
tion under the general treaty should
first be submitted to the senate for Its
approval or disapproval. This places
the United States on the same footing
with Great Britain in this matter. Mr.
Sherman urged that the treaty be re
ported and put forward In the senate
with as much speed as the magnitude
of the subject would justify.
There was also a considerable discus
sion relative to the construction of the
Nicaraguan canal question which is
bound to come prominently to the front
during this congress. Mr. Sherman Is
favorable to this project but has taken
the ground In his speeches In the senate
that tile canal should be constructed
through the instrumentality of the Uni
ted States alone, rather than through
the agency of a private corporation aid
ed and assisted by this government In
the matter of bonds.
It is understood that he told the com
mittee today he had hopes of securing
another concession from Nicaragua and
that the initial. steps would soon be
taken with that end In view.
While Mr. Sherman was present the
Cuban situation was touched upon and
while members decline to make any
statements about what took place In the
committee room they all appear to be.
pleased with the conference. It was
openly stated that the senate and the
country would be put in possession of
all the facts concerning the troubles
In Cuba and that the policy of suppress
ing the n. -s would no longer prevail.
GREEK FLEET DEPARTS.
With the Exception of Two Small War
ships the Entire Squadron Leaves
Canea, March 1C As a result of the
operation of the blockade of Cretan
ports by the combined fleets of the
powers, the Greek squadron, with the
exception of two small warships, left
Cretan waters today.
Paris, March 10. M. Ilanoteaux, min
ister of foreign affairs, made in the
senate today a dedal atlon of the pul
ley of France In the matter of the
Greco-Cretan situation similar to that
which he made In the chamber of depu
ties yesterday, when he announced
that France would adhere to the con
cert policy and at the conclusion of his
statement asked for a vote of confi
dence In the government.
The senute then attested Its confi
dence lu the government's policy by a
vote of 210 to 32.
Athens, March 1C. A prolonged
meeting of the cabinet was held today,
The ministers discussed at irreat
length the attitude to be taken in the
event of the powers attempting to
coerce Greece Into a compliance with
their demands. It Is stated that no
disposition was shown to accede to the
demands, mid that It was finally de
elded to take active measures as the
only possible solution of the difficulty.
It is thought that by active meas
ures is meant a declaration of war
against Turkey, which, in Its effect,
would be to givo Greece the right to
maintain her army In Crete and de
pilve the powers of any right of Inter
ference, Seven Toll Gates Destroyed,

.Mr. Woodruff, of Philadelphia, pro
posed an amendment Increasing the

The senate resolution Instructing the
senate and house committees on public
buildings to confer with the governor
on the new eaoitol question and make
a report not later than .March 17, was
taken from the table.
Mr. Bliss; of Delaware, was opposed
to the resolution. He thought it was
time for conference with the governor
and with each other to cease and get
down to business and pass a bill. After
a bill had been passed the governor
would have his light under the consti
tution to communicate his further
views. He declared that he had views
on the rebuilding of a capltol, and de
sired to express them on the lloor of

REV. DR. SWALLOW'S CASE
The Editor Will Not Be Brought Before
the Legislature for Contempt Until
After His Trial for Libel.
Harrisburg, Pa., March 10. Senator
Oobin said tonight that Rev. Dr. Swal
low would not bo arraigned before the
bar of the legislature for alleged con
tempt in refusing to testify before the
capltol lire investigating committee un
til after the trial of the libel suits which
begin tomorrow in the Dauphin county
court. This Is In accord with the pro
gramme agreed to at a conference last
week between some of the parties inter
ested in the suits and members of the
senate and house judiciary general com
mittee. Senator Gubln is directly Inter
ested In the case and tnlnks 11 Is wis
to delay action in the contempt proceed
ings until after the trial.
A joint meeting of the senate and
house buildings commission was held
today at which It was decided by a vol"
of ten to six to recommend that Dr.
Swallow be arraigned before the bur of
the house and senate to be dealt with
as the two bodies see fit. The com
mittee thiuks tho doctor should be forc
ed to divulge the names of those win
gave him the Information that the capl
tol fire was the result of carelessness.
Those who voted against the recommen
dation that the editor-preacher be held
in contempt are Representatives K tu
tor, Moore (Chester), Dixon, Chldsey.
Bntton and Phelps.
Those who wanted Dr. Swallow ar
raigned at once took the position that
his refusal to testify was an indlgnlt
which the legislature ought not to over
look. Mr. Keator contended that the
doctor refused to Live the names be
fore the conimltlee because he was
threatened with a suit for libel and
that in view of the pending suit lie was
justified In refusing to do or say any
thing which would tend to iuciinilnate
hiiiibelf. The leport of the committee
was referred to the senate judiciary
general committee with' instructions to
repoit at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning.

A Sport Who Has Examined Corbett and
Fitzsimmons Declines to Risk a
Dollar on Either Pugilist.
Carson, New, Mureh 1C This after
noon the weather was bad and the
clouds threatened rain or snow. The
klnetoscnpe people can take pictures
In such a light, however. The weather
bureau indications this afternoon say
fair tomuirow. Dan Stuart says there
will be no postponement unless there
Is a heavy snow or rain slot in. Later
a strong bieeze from the south swept
away the clouds and the sun beat down
on the battleground fiom a clear sky.
Fitzslmmon's tight wrist, which he
sprained while boxing with Illckey at
Colorado Springs a month ago, and
which he has favored in his training,
Is as sound as ever. Bob tiled It this
morning In the most severe manner
without pain. He will wear no band
ages on his hands tomorrow.
Corbett Is absolutely without blem
ish. His hands, usually tender, are
hard as nails, and there Is not a sore
tendon or an aching joint In his body,
lie never received a scratch while
training, and was fortunate in avoid
ing cold and chills. The Australian
seemed a trifle careless in exposing
himself and did not hesitate to Indulge
lu hot mineral baths, which he claimed
broke up his cold, lie Is more rugged
than Coibett and his complexion re
sembles crimson parchment. Both
men were examined this morning by a
sport who has money to bet. After
looking them over carefully he decid
ed not to wager a dollar. The betting
In the Paris Mutuals is slow. Corbett,
Green and Hawkins are the favorites.
Fltzslmmons, Smith and Flaherty are
second choice. The bookmakers a-'c
offering 10 to 0'i, Corbett being the fa
vorite. There Is still little Fltzslmmons
money In slcht.
Challenges to the winner from Shar
key, Cioddard and Maher will be read

not yet been selected.
The long-looked for sports from the
east and the west arrived today and
discharged additions to the crowd
which has already severely taxed the
resources of the town. But the attend
ance at the ring side will not bo as
large as was anticipated. Between 1,000
anil r,,00O people will perhaps be'a care
ful estimate of the number. Over
whelming confidence on both sides is
a bit of puzzle to all the sports. It Is
undoubtedly Genuine In tho two men
and tends to still further shake the Ideas
of any one who is inclined to waver
about picking the winner. The prevail
ing opinion seems to lie that the light
will be limited to fifteen rounds. No
one W Inclined to think that the battle
will be a long one. The Interpretation
of the rules which allows hlttlns In
clinches and breakaways appears to ac
count In a great measure for the popu
lar Idea of a short light.
Dan Stuart, it Is evident, assumes
what majoilty since, ho has put on the

Both pugilists turned In early to get a
