A. W. Maclien, chief of the free delivery
system, Postoffice Department, is in re
ceipt of hundreds or communications from
letter carriers who were dismissed under
the last Administration, asking for rein
statement. Each of these cases will be
considered. "When a letter carrier has been
out of the service for a longer period than
one year he will be required to take the
usual civil service application before the
subject of his reinstatement can come
properly before the department, though this
part of the civil service law will not be
made to apply to those applicants who are
ex-Union soldiers. Where the carrier was
dismissed for malfeasance in orfice, and
was convicted of the charges, ids applica

A number of the applications come from
Hamilton, Ohio; Xorwalk, Ohio; Spring

Gotlinni Ward McAllister Had
Uecn Its Genius and Sinco Ills
Death the Events Lost Popularity.
New l'ork, April 10. The -Patriarchs,
the organization under whose direction the
oldest aud most important set of sub
scription dances in this city has been given,
exists no longer. It. was dis.-olved at a
meeting held at the Waldorf Friday even
ing, and the majority or its members did
not know of it until yesterday. Those pres
ent were Johnston Livingston, 131 bridge T.
Gerry, William C. Whitney, Charles Lanier,
William Uhinelnrider, Stewart, George Gils
wold Haven, Edward N. Taller, Edmund L.
Baylies, Buchanan Winthrop, and Uradish
Absent members seuttheir votes byletter.
These weie thrown out, and only those or
the members present counted. There
were 1 0 yeas and 2 nays. The two in
favor of continuing the balls are said to
have been Joluibton Livingston and 12. N.
During the twcnty-foilr or twenty-five
years of the existence of the organization
the Patriarch balls, with the exception of
thosie of the past reason, have been given
at Delmonlco's. Robert G. Bemsen, who
died last year, was the last survivor or
the original members. Delaneey Kane,
George Bond, H. Le Grand Cannon, J. Fred
Tains, Thomas Howard, and EHhIi.i Dyer,
jr., are among those who have led the
cotilious of the Patriarchs.
Franklin Bartlett led for a number of
years, aud he was Mr. McAllister's choice
of all leaders. Mr. Bartlett led the last
of the balls, which was given on the night
of March 2 at the Waldorf. It lit generally
conceded thnt the management of thete
balls has been somewhat of a failure since
the death of Ward McAllister. For a
period of a quarter of a century the socinl
life of the gay mouths of each winter be
gan and ended with a Patriarch bail. On
this account the coming-out teas were com
pressed Into Hie month of November and
early days of December.
At the first hall of each winter the en
tire liht of debutantes was invariably been
and the amount of attention then received
was apt to indicate the young women'
social sucre-s or the reverse. During Ward
McAllistei's day the firs-t and last balls
were always larger than the Intermediate
one. It was not until after Mr. .McAllister's
death that the splendor of the entertain
ments, considering the amount subscribed,
was appreciated. The three balls given
each season at Delmonico's cost $5,000.
The floral decorations were vrry gorgeous.
As to the tuppers they were most elaborate.
The regular late courbe oupper was sup
plemented by a light buffet affair, served
upstairs during the entire ball. Two large
orchestras, furnished the music.
There was never any change In the form
of the invitations, which were engraved
on note paper, with the year on top and
the list of Patriarchs' names under the
body of the invitation. -Each Patriarch re
ceived eight as his share. Some of thec, of
course, were requiml for the members
of his own family, but The others were
used to wipe out special social obliga
tions. It was always possible, also, to
confer special courtesy to friends visiting
in townbysendinginvitations tothel'atri
arch balls- With the dearth of private
functions in New York this was no small
matter. Each of the Patriarchs in turn
sent his list of invited guests to Ward Mc
Allister. Besides these, there were a cer
tain number of special invitations issued
with the general consent. The recipients
of these were notabilities temporarily in
town and members of the diplomatic corps
It was the original specified object of
the Patriarchs not to give the balls ex
clusively for one set, but to general so
ciety, and it was only arterthe death of
Mr. McAllister that they lapsed into small,

A lOTnBIl'S MAD ACT.
She Attempts to Drown Her Chil
dren and Kills Herself.
St. Louis, April 10. Mrs. Sophia Vogel,
of whom little Is known, became suddenly
insane today on the ferryboat Br. Hill,
crosslug the Mississippi, and threw her
two children into the river. She then
plunged in after them.
As the boat a eared the Missouri shore
the woman, who had edged her way to
the rail, picked up one of the children and
threw it into the muddy stream, and it
disappeared with a faint scream. Turning
quickly, before any one could interfere,
she seized the girl. The child struggled,
but she wns lffteTThlgh above the mother's
head and tossed into the water. Then
with a loud cry, the mother sprang through
the gate on the boat's side and leapetlover
board. Cnpfr. Keller reversed his engine,
but before any- steps at rescue could be
taken a boatnad darted from the landing.
In it was Michael Bradley, a fisherman,
who pulled to the spot- where the children
went down. When they appeared he pulled
them into the boat. The mother did not
rise again. Both the children, who were
unconscious, were taken to the dispensary
in a critical condition. It is believed the
woman was crazed by poverty and mis
fortune. A GOOD PLACE FOR LA3IONT.
to Be Slated for Northern
New York, April 10. Daniel S. Lamont,
former Secretary of War, returned to this
city from'the South last night. When seen
today he declined to confirm or deny the
rumor that hels shortly to lie made presi
dent of the Northern Pacific.
"That is a subject1," he said, "which
I must refuse to talk about." The report
that Col. Lamont is to lie made president
of the Northern 'Pacific, was started this
week in Wall street. It has long been a
pet scheme of the president of the Great
Northern to have the Northern Pacific and
Great Northern consolidated. Col. Lamont
is an intimate friend of- President Hill,
and railroad men would .not lie surprised
if he should get the place.

New Yiok, April 10. Notuntll today was
it possible for anything like an oflicial
announcement of the program of dedication
day to be made. Now, too, it Is known
almost exactly how the Grant parade will
be made up. It is estimated that 5t,000
men will march, and that five hours will
be consumed in pas&lug the reviewing
It will be almost entirely a military pa
rade, and fully ao.OOO soldiers will be in
line, divided as follows: Federal troops,
5,000; New l'ork National Guard, 13,000;
Pennsylvania National Guard, 5,000; New
Jersey National Guard, 4,000; military or

these there will be 10.0UO in the veterans'
division and 10,000 in the chic division.
Gen. Hodge says the procession will
move at 10.n0, and reach the President's
reviewing stand at 1 o'clock. The pro
cession will continue past the reviewing
stand to One Hundred and Sixteenth
street, where the line will be broken and
the various organizations will proceed
down town by the way of the Boulevard
or Amsterdam avenue.
The exercises at the tomb will begin at
11 o'clock, and end by 12:20. They will
begin by a prayer by Bishop Newman,
followed by an address by Gen. Horace
Porter, who, as chairman of the commit
tee which raised funds for the erection of
the monument, will formally deliver it to
the city. Mayor Strong will accept it in
a ten-minute speech.
Then will come the address of the day by
President McKinley, the program ending
with the benediction, to be pronounced by

invited guests of distinction, he will board

President McKinley will probably accept
the tender of a four-in-hand made by Gen.
Healey. The latter has offered the equip
age for the use of the President, Mayor
Strougi and Gen. Porter, in tiding from
the Fifth Avenue Hotel to the monument
iu the morning and from the monument
to 130th street after the ceremonies.
