Virginia RepresentRti vc Cto??.
to Trenton to Visit
THEY DISCUSS CLAYTON
Questions of Customs Districts!
Will Be Settled Within
Washington, January 13?With a
broad smile on hie face, Representative ?
Carlln, of Virginia, to-day returned
from Trenton, where yesterday he ;
conferred with President-Elect Wilson
over the appointment of Representa?
tive Clayton, of Alabama, for the post- 1
tlon of Attorney Neneral. When Mr
< 'arlln was asked if he would Dot say
something to give the place-eeekors in
Virginia encouragement, he replied,
pleasantly, that he would be delighted
to tell what happened, but that in this ,
instance there was little of a local
kind to Interest the Old Dominion peo- ,
The fact that Mr. Carltn was invited
!? go to Trenton, and that ho did not go j
on his own initiative, in a point to show ;
that when President-Elect Wilson goes'
into the White House the former may1
be. relied upon to give advice from time
to time regarding Virginia appoint?
While there is not the least doubt
here that Virginia people will get all ?
they arc entitled to from tho now ad- i
ministration, there is much speculation 1
as to just whom the President will
IBOat depend upon for advice.
"The whole question of what to do 1
with the customs districts in Virginia ;
will be settled within the next week," !
was the statement made at the Treasury
Department to-day. to The Times- ,
Dispat'-h correspondent, when inquiiy|
was made as to what was being done
about consolidating the Petersburg!
office with Richmond. It was further
stated that within a week the President
would get the papers and then an execu?
tive order, in accordance with the law 1
passed last year, would he Issued.
Pi as it snail J ail other offices, except
that at Petersburg, have been settled.
The Senate Committee on Claims,
to-day favorably reported a bill In?
troduced some time ago to reimburse
Postmaster Edgar Allan. Jr . of Rich?
mond, to the extent of 117.260 for the
amount now charged against him by
the government as a result cf the big
post-offl.ee robbery in Richmond about
two years ago. At that time there was
stolen In money and stampsS 84,748.
and all but 117.240 of this amount has
been recovered. As it has been clearly
shown that Mr. Allan was in no way
to blame for the robbery, the Senate
committee just referred to. decided
that the postmaster should not be
charged with the loss. If is quite
likely that Senators Martin and Swan
son will call the matter up within the
near future, and urge Its passage.
