Hugh-Gordon -Miller is in town, and
presumably in . reference to the collector-,
ship/of.- customs,- at Norfolk, with which;
his name has'been mentioned.' Mr.-" Miller'
was at the House to-day.- and after
a : long wait, saw i the ' President. ". On i leav-/
ing tlie^WhiteiHousoAMr.S Miller, averred;
that he .couldn'tfsay'fa"; thirig-^ undoubted-/
|y one of ithe'most unhappy predicaments
Mr.tMH].er'eyer v got into, if. he" really "had
any tiling^ he:' could. sayJv*The. : impreSsloh,
however, 1 - i was 'that Mr. Miller was.; so
loaded with state- secrets ; that -it would
be utterly unwise for - him to say ..: any
thing./ Yet those who know Mr. Miller
feel that for him to keep a political
cret cbricefnlng himself for. any -length' of
time will be punishment /that heprobably
will not undergo. , When he gets back •to
publications f rorri " there are ex
'^>ecVed' to; indicate , that ;Mr. Miller really
•'^a wJ&He.j Presiden t. There is. surely some
thirig'/doing in connection with Mr. Mil-,
ler and his position of Assistant-Attor
ney. ' Judge . Lewis would I probably be glad
to: have Mr. Miller transferred/to 6oriie
other/ place, and if he could be worked j off
on' the. collectorship at Norfolk, Judge
Lewis wouldn't object or belsorry. '/ .
Mr/.Miller is at.'ieast a receptive candi-"
date ?"for the collectorship, as he is for
most anj'thlng in the way of -a Federal
position that comes along. It is needless
to say that Mn Miller will not , have /the
backing of the/ Virginia organization—
