the White House yesterday was Hon. Ben
Tillman, of South Carolina. His appear

some little comment, as the pitchfork"
man was conspicuous for his absence theie
during the last Cleveland administration.
Mr. McKinley received' his visitor cordially-
The two chatted in the most pleas

Tillman intimated before leaving the Presi

solution of the difficulty, and that the

It is ttated on excellent authority that
the principal and perhaps the on! dliect
official recognition which the gold Demo
crats will receive from the McKinley Ad
ministration will lie the retention in office
of William S. I'orman as Commissioner of
Internal Revenue. Mr. Forman will pioba
bly be permitted to hold office for the rail
four years from the date of Ins commissi hi .
This report is borne out by the fact that
ex-Cominisfcioner John W. Mason, of West
Virginia, who has been an active candi
date for reappointment, has received some
kind of tip from the Executive Mansion,
sufficiently strong to cause him to promptly
slutt his application and stand out for
"something equally as good "
The State or California, not content wilh
seeming a Cabinet position, is reaching
out for several foreign appointments, chief
among them being the Italian, Brazilian
and Japanese missions. A delegation
of Californlans, headed by Senator Per
kins and Representatives Barham .mil

to urge these appointments upon the Pre-i-dent.

visited the President was also de
sirous or having Col. J. P. Jnrk.soii r-p-pointed
as collertor of the port or San

appointments under consideration, but gave
the repieseatatives of the Golden Gate no
intimation ot -what he would do in regard
to the several applications.
Dr. W. C. Boteler, of Kansas City, who
is an applicant for the position as auditm
of the War Department, again saw the

lies in the fact that he nobly sang the

recent campaign, was another representa

President for an office. Secretary of the
avy Long remained with Mr. McKinley
for some time, discussing matters con
nected with his department.
It is understood that President McKinley
will probably appoint Hon. AndrewD. White,
oT New York, as ambassador at Berlin.
Since Henry C. Payne, national commit
teeman, of Wisconsin, who was slated for
the Berlin mission, has declined to leave
the country, several men prominent in na
tional affairs have been mentioned for the
plnce. Among them was Charlemagne
Tower, of Philadelphia. Mr. Tower was
indorsed by both Senators Quay and Pen
rose, and the entire Pennsylvania Repub
lican Congressional delegation. The
President, however. Is said to lean toward
tho candidacy of White.
While Senator Piatt was at the White
House on Wednesdayit issaid that he men
tioned Mr. White's name to the President
and intimated that his appointment would
not only be entirely acceptable to the
organization in New York State, but
would reflect great credit upon the Ad
ministration. In case Mr. White secures
the coveted position it is said that Mr.
Tower will bcappoluted to a minor mission.

A committee of five clergymen, repre
senting the various denominations of
Philadelphia, called upon President Mc
Kinley this morning and presented a peti
tion favoring the proposition advocated by
3Ir. David Lubln, of California.
On being handed the document the Presi
dent remarked: "I receive it."' Being in
formed of its contents he remarked: "I
know of it," and being requested to send
Ids reply before April 11 next, he handed
It to his secretary and said: ''You will
please call my attention to this matter."
Sir. David Lubin's proposition referred
to in the above document is the plan of a J
bounty on the exports of agricultural
staple" It i chinned by the movers of tins
plan that jitsto long as manufactures a re
piotecied by a tariff on imports, every
consideration of justice, equity and ex
pediency demands a- an offset an equal
firotecAVm to agriculture by a bounty on
exports. The movers claim that a tariff
on the liiijmrtsof llie "-tijiles of agriculture
is unable to protect the great staple so
lone as there ! a surplus lor export.
It Is iiiHlei stood that the President has
selected Miss Mamie Newlands to be poat
misticss of West Point. The selection of
Miss Newlands ends an Inti'lestiug contest
for the place Iretwcen the sut-oessrul nin

A CIIITHCH FOR I.AMKINS.
Followers of the Deposed Pastor
Organize the ".Lovely Zion."
The "Lovely Zion" is the name of the
new congregation, oiganized yesterday by
the boceders rrom Salem Baptist Church.
The new congregation is composed of the
followers of the Rev. Geiiah S. Lamkius,
formerly pastor of Salem CIiutcIi. They
are also said to be the fashionable part
ot the old Salem congregation and were
generpily known as the 400 ot that charge.
A special meeting of the council of
Baptist Churches was bold at the Second
Church yesterday to consider the causes for
the withdrawal of certain members from
the congregation of Salem Baptist Church.
The couucil was largely attended, aud
was presided over by Rev. Bishop Johnson.
The charges against the Satem congre
gation for jll-tieatmcnt of Pastor Lam
kins and the members of the church who
upheld his course, were presented by Wil
liam Washington, moderator, and William
Coleman, clerk of the church.
The charges allege that the Rev. Lam
kins and tils followers 'were "driven from
tlieir humble place of worship by physical
force and by unparliamentary, un-Baptistic
and tin-Christ-! ike proceedings o members
"who do not regard law or order."
The complaint then relates in detail all
the circumstances which led to the dis
turbances among the members of the con
gregation of Salem Church.
The Kev. Lamkin, whun seen yesterday
afternoon, seemed satisfied with the turn
things Jiad taken. His congregation , he
said, were already negotiating for the
purchase of a lot on which to erecta new
church building, and, he said, he had as
surances from a very prominent business
firm in the city that as soon as the lot

Perhaps the Wisconsin leader can le in
duced to accept the mission to Belgium,
for which he is now discussed, but. un
less he can, he will get nothing. Gov
Merrlam has had high hopes that he
might be sent to Germany, but his con
fidence has been nalely shattered by the
repoit .apparently fullj authenticated, that
the President proposes to send Mr. Cleve
land's Venezuela boundaiy commissioner,
Mr. Andrew D. While, lo Berlin.
The original McKinle men aie making
a desperate eflort to induce the President
to abandon his support of White. They
do not object to the man personally, and
freely admit his distinguished record in the
diplomatic scivlcc, and the piobability tli.it
he would make an excellent minister to
the court of William the Erratic.
But they do not like the idea of giving
Piatt this recognition. It is known that
tin' easy boss is very desirous of having
Prof. White recognized, and that the prin
cipal argument for his appointment is the
fact that it will be a sort of "compensatory
duty" for Secretary Bliss, who has always
been the antagonist of the Senator. An'
other objection is freely and frequently
made. That is that when there are so
few offices to go around the President
ought to frown severely on the ambitions
of "ex's" to get their old places back
again, or to get better ones instead.
COMnSSlOXKH OF PATENT'S.
It In Snid Uutterworth Can Dave
It is generally believed that Benjamin
Butterworth can have the nomination for
Commissioner of Patents, and that he will
accept it notwithstanding his frequent as
sertions that he did not desire his old posi
tion. There are many rival candidates for
the place, and one of-them, Mr. R. A.
Parker, was presented to the President
yesterday. The entire field of candidates
for CommlssioaeroJC Patents numbers about
thirty, most of them well-known patent
attorneys. Thereare said to be six from
the city of Chicjtgo alone, and every great
city has at least; one candidate. There also
is a group of about ten candidates for As
sistant Commissioner, and a large number
of those now competing for the fiist place
will bo quite wiHing to drop to the second
place after they full in their ambition to
be made commissioner.
Mr. Butterwqrth has only to give his
consent, accordjug.to the advices of close
frieuds of the President, to get the ap
pointment, andSQme of the gentlemen say
that ho will announce his willingness to
accept, the place the coming week.
The attraction at the Bijou Dext week

upon lovers of the vaudeville, many of the
strongest variety combinations ot the pres

LliOTUIIKD ON NAVAL WARFARE.
Capt. Malum Finds Greater Ivvll.s
Boston, March 25 -A large and distin
guished audience gathered In Huntington
Hall Inst night to listen to thTfTfrst of a
series or lectures on naval warfare to be
delivered by Capt. Alfred T. Mahan, U. S.
N., rctlied, under the auspices of the Low
Friends of arbitration would undoubtedly
have beta chagrined had they been piesent
and heard the burst of applause that
greeted the captain's statement that he
believed that a worse evil than war Is the
acquiescence of a people In wrong carried
beyond the point of human endurance.
"War," he said, "though different on
land and on sea, is the same great bril
liant and heroic subject. It is not an
isolated fact, but bears a close relation
ship to the history of its age.
"It is generally one of several factors
that make the success or undoing of the
nation and looks for Its cause, as a rule,
to civil conditions. There is no longer
such a thing as fighting ror the mere tri
umph or victory. The tournament of old
and the football game of today are exam
ples of the contest that is waged merely for
the sake of viotory."
LECTURED ON X-RAYS.

nology at the Catholic University, gave an
interesting lecture in McMnhou Hall yes
terday afternoon at 4:45 upon the "Roent

chair of technology in the University of
Illinois, and has made special research
into the subject ot his1 lecture. He said the
x-ray is no new thing, but has been the
study of scientists ever since the time or
Faraday, until its recent apparent per
fection by Prof. Roentgen. The lecture
was further explained by a numlier of ap
paratus and vacuum tubes used In making

prices that now obtain. This firm Is the
pioneer of moderate prices, combined with
strictly high-grade quality, and the public

dozens of different designs and materials;
all best quality; all moderately priced.

DEN ED, BUT NOT WINED.
Mrs. McKinley Has Kept Faith With
Mrs. McKinley lias kept her word. She
has given her first Cabinet dinner and
there was no wine.
The table appointments were all that
taste could suggest and money buy, but
the guests quaffed nothing more seductive
than nature's own vintage Adam's ale.
The wine question has been a matter
of vital interest to a large mass of re
rormert, ever since the election, and when
Mrs. McKinley assured them that no wine
should be used in the White House as long
as she was its mistress, she probably im
agine! that she had settled the point.
She reckoned, however, without a large
contingent ot moral despots who have
been doubting her assertion eversince
she voiced it until she made it good last
One prominent society woman up Con
necticut avenue way said to another yes
terday. "It is a matter of individual con
science. When Mrs. McKinley set out the
water carafres she simply expressed the
courage of her convictions.
"But has a woman in her position a
right to her individual conscience? It is
all right enough Tor home folks, but think
of when the diplomats go to the White
House to dine My husband says that, as
our chief revenue comes from whisky, it
is hardly consistent for the United States,
when actu-g as host to foreign guests, to
deprive them of the wines they are used
to and have a right to expect."
A lady of the Diplomatic Corps seemed
rather amused at the idea." "It Is all
righTT' she said, in referring to the possi
bility of being given water at some future
dinner "I like water, especially Washing
ton water It has such a fine body to it
and I like wine. My happiness docs not
depend on what I drink, and, indeed, since
I have been In America I find that I do
not want wine for my dinner not always,
you know and I like Mrs. McKinley, wine
or no wine."
The White Ribboncrs, of course, are de
lighted. Mrs. M. B. Piatt, president of the
District W. C. T. U, said: "I am sure that
every temperance woman the world ovei
will rejoice In the stand taken for total
abstinence by the First Lady of the Land,
but it is only wimt we expected from Mrs

A WEST POINT IDYL.
Old Letter Carrier Dyini; Hecnuse
the Pos.tmistrs Resinned.
When Miss Blanche Berard, who Is seventy-three
years of age. decided to resign
the West Point postoffice some two weeks
ago, she called James Garvey. the official
mail carrier at the military academy, Into
her private office, and said to him:
"Garvey, I -am going to resign. I have
lcen here long enough and I think I am en
titled to a rest. There is too much work
here for one ot my years."
"Why, Miss Blanche." replied the old
fellow, "if you leave here it will break
my heart. I could not work if you were
out ot the postoffice."
Between the venerable postmistress and
the letter-carrier there exists a strong
friendship. With Garvey -Miss Berard's
word has more weight than the commands
of the general ot the Army. When he read
inthe paperthatMiss Bernrdhadforwarded
her resignation to Washington, Garvey wept
like a child.
His comrades tried to cheer him up,
made every effort to divert his mind from
illss Berard's resignation, but It was all lu
vain. The veteran was absolutely broken
hearted at the prospect.
Last Sunday Gnrvey was removed to the
Soldiers' Hospital almost a nervous wreck.
To complicate matters pneumonia devel
oped. All day yesterday he hung between
life and death. In his wild delirium he
kept constantly begging the old postmis
tress not to resign, saying how much he
would regret her departure. Young Dr.
Mason, one of the most skillful physicians
In the Army, has been constantly at faith
ful Garvey's bedside during the past forty
eight hours. He is doing all that science
can suggest to nurse the broken-hearted
man back to health, but his vitality was
so weakened before he came to the hos
pital that it is doubtful whether Dr.
Mason'8 efforts will be succcssrul. Accord
ing to the latest reports Garvey's condi
tion "was almost hopeless. During one of
his sane moments yesterdaay the Rev.
Father Doyle administered to him the

Private Garvey is an old Army veteran.
All the officers respect him because of

tailed to deliver the mall matter to the
officers of the academy. He was the first
enli3ted man detailed for such duty, and

he was West romfs first official n.nll

meager salary Uncle Sam pays his enlisted

Should She Proclaim Herself, a

There are crowds and crowds of girls In
Washington who earn their own bread.
Many of these brave tollers belong to dis
tinguished families in reduced circum
stances, and while they are grateful to
have work, and do it conscientiously, they
are not so proud ot their wage-earning thaU

Of course there were many opinions. Sev

DO YOU LIKE THIS ROOM?
If One Girl WorRrd Wonders, S
It was not a very large room, but there
was enough of it, such as it was, In iU
germ state. Aye, so thoroughly unat
tractive was it in its ctntmonplnce dmgi
nes of dusty, stained lloor and old-fashionednot
antique cottage furniture, than
any but a determined home benutifler
would have pionounced it hopelessly be
yond the possibility cf satisfying the es
thetic needs of a dainty girl except at tho
cost ot a gcodly number of dollars for
complete refurnishing. But the joung en
thusiast who stocd in the midst of It and
mused was a woman of ideasand resources,
she saw, in her mind's eye, the end to ba
attained before beginning, as do all success
Daintiness being the keynote of this girl's
make-up, the idea came to her that aha
might evolve a violet room out of these
unpromising resources, aided by her littla
hoard ot $20, which must cover the whole
cost of embellishing.
The scheme was her own, and she
worked it out brilliantly.
She had the plaster-finished walls kal
somined a pale tint of violet, a cheap buti
artistic mural decoration, and around tha
top she put a paper frieze of the scattered
Then she enameled the bureau, wash
stand, chairs and tables white, with glid
ing on the knobs and railings. The bed
stead she sold and got an enameled Iron
one, over which she Hung a canopy mado
of dotted Swiss, caught back with violet
ribbons and bunches of the palest of those
artificial violets which are now sold by
the peck at the milliner's. The peck sho
disposed about that room yielded bushel
in the way of fine effects.
The dotted Swiss draping the sides
of the tall mirror, caught ali atout with
small bunches of single violets, and a
ruffled cover of the same for the top and
for the pincushion, made the impossible
old bureau as pretty as a picture.
She put white matting on the floor
and on that a pale-tinted jnte rug and
a white goatskin. The windows had
dotted Swiss curtains, with a ruffle down
the front edges, put on the poles with a
frill standing up. A home-made screen
frame was enameled and on its white
matting panels she sewed clusters aud
straggling single violets, connecting thera
by green stems traced with a brush.
This screened the washstand.
On the little white table was set a jar
diniere filled with the bJos.onis and green
leaves, and on the wall in the place of
honor over the mantel hung a friend's
gift, which had unconsciously suggested
the motif of this charming room, "A Yard
of Violets," framed in white and gold.
To add the finishing touch of daintiness
and renlUm, a sachet of Florentine orrU
was laid under the bureau cover and tha
powder sprinkled in the blooms all about
the room; giving a whltr or the real fra
grance to this little girlish bower, that wn
