It was another busy day at the "While

all the States -were in evidence, and :.s a

tented looks of the office-seekers from
oilier States were tho.se or Texans, Lou.'b

nonce lield up
This is occasioned in Kentucky by the
prolonged Senatorial deadlock, and in the
other three States by bitter factional
differences The Administration's pur
pose is to do nothing in these" cases until
home differences are healed and political
The right in Louisiana is parliculirly
bluer, the Republican patty theie being
divided into three opposing ructions. One

Pi evident McKinley has decided, how
ever, that the patronage of Louisianais to 1 e
given to representative men, irrespective
or the nurticularfactions to which t heylia ve
hitnerio belonged, with the end in view or
creating a solid and harmonious Republi
can party in that State In the meanwhile
no nominations are being made, although
there are a number or important places to
be filled, prominent among them being the
collector or customs and burvejor of the
port or New OrleaiiP
There are a number of applicants for the
former position, including Capt. Wimberly,
11. C. Miner, ex-Congressman II Dudley
Coleman ami Gen. Belian. It is generally
understood, however, that if factional dif
ferences are healed, 1 P. Herwig will
be tendered the place. He is In no sen-e
a candidate for the position, however, but
it is said would accept It ir It were ten

Louisiana is that of ociner or the miiiL

ing Repiiblicnnsof tneState.areappllcaiils
for the position Judge Thomas Brcoks,
of New Orleans, wants to be appointed
surveyor or the port, and in all probability
will eventually land the place.
The same condition of arfftirs that exists
hi Louisiana is also to be found in Texas,
where E. H R Green and Dr. John Grant
are contending for leadership. Green is
chairmai of the State committee, while his
opponent is national committeeman. Roth
claim to beorigiual McKlnleymen, and both
are equally anxious to control tip; spoils
Just what the outein of the fight will be
Is entirely a mattei of conjecture. In the
mean while all nominations!!! the Lone Star
State ar being held in abeyance. It might
be interesting in this connection to know
that Green is the bon of Hetty Green, of
Ne York, who is reputed t be the wealth
iest woman in America. Green went to
Teens several years ago, and has ac
quired large interests In the State.
President MoKInley is beginning to tire
of the persistency of those "who want of
fice, and it is not improbable thattherules
will again have to be changed. The
President finds it impossible to transact
the work that the duties of the office re
quire, and early yesterday morning in
structed Secretary Porter to allow no
one to see him unless on business of a
very important nature This was found
Impracticable, however, on account or the
large number of people who demanded to
tec Mr. McKinley As many or the im
portunate ones were Senators and Rcpie
sentatives, the President's secretary did
not find It an easy matter to exclude
them, and finally had to abandon the
imperative orders that his chief had laid
down for him early in the day. One of
the more notable callers at the "White
House yesterday was Col. Buck, the Re
publican leader of Georgia, who has lately
been appointed minister to Tokio.
Col. Ruck's mission to the White House
was for tin purposeof having a mllitaryof
ficcr attached to his legation. He sug
gested to the President Major John L.
Clem as the proper man to fill the place.
Major Clnni served with distinction through
out the civil war, and was known as'the
Drummer-Hoy of Shiloh. On account of his
bravery he was promoted to the rank of
lieutenant- At the present time he is at
tached to the TJ. S. Army pot. stationed
at Fort McPherson, Atlanta, Ga., holding
the position of quartermaster general.
Col. Buck also took occasion to recom
mend the following Georgians for office:
"Walter Johnson as United States maishal
and H. P. Farrow for an auditorship in
the Treasury Department. Col. Buck told
a Tunes reporter that he expected to I cave
for Tokio about May 15. As yet he has
not decided upon his secretaries. Another
distinguished caller at the White House
was Senator Wellington or Maryland, who
saw the .rrebident in reference to the
appointment of George T. Kustis, who
wants to be appointed to a consulate in
Denmark. Mr. Eustis is a nephew of the
present minister to France, but unlike his
distinguished relative is a Republican
The Maryland Senator also urged Mr
McKinley to appoint W S. Hegge eom

Fill a bottle or common glass with urine

There is comfort in the knowledge so

A Discharged Veterans' List Being

Cnus.es of Their Removal
Office to Heeeivo At
tention. Secretary Alger has directed the various
bureau chiefs of the War Department to
make a complete list of all the old soldiers
who have within the past twelve years
been removed from their positions in that
department, and to state the causes of
removal. This work is being conducted
very quietly, and there is no disposition
on the patt of the officials to discuss
the meaning of the order. Gen. Alger, !b
is well known, takes keen interest In
anythlngthac concerns the Union vett-r.ms,
and has been prominent himself in Grand
It is utidct stood that the Secretary is
having the record nridc with the intention
of ultimatelj restoring to their places
the ex-soldlers who were removed dur
ing the two Cleveland Administrations.
At least, the belief Is strong that Gen.
Alger will recommend to the President
a material modification of the ciyll service
regulations, so that the discharged divi
sion chiefs and clerks can be pat back on
the rolls, provided they were not guilty
of acts making their removal necessary.
It is also whispered that similar action
will be taken In other departments of the
Government, and after the information is
put In complete form, the President will
decide whether or not discharged Repub
licans arc to be reinstated.
The claim is made by many people that
.no matter how strongly the Republican
party is committed to the so-called merit
system. President McKinley should modify
the regulations so that justice may be
done men and women deprived of their
situations through alleged violation of the
civil service law.

toward a proposition which has frequently
been recommended by his predecessor, l hat
a limited indemnity be allowed for regis

doubtless ask that authority be granted

extent not exceeding 910 In any one case.

1,155 were chargeable to the burning and

dents. One hundred and ninety losses were due
to depredations committed by postal of
ficials; 231 were due to depredations com
mitted by outside persons, and in 102
cases of loss the responsibility could not
be fixed. The recoveries made through
the office of the chief Inspector, thiomh
the dead letter office and through outride
parties was 0518, leaving the number of
cases In which recovery wns found tube
impossible but S52. According to the rec
ords of the oHiee or the Third Assistant
Postmaster General the losses amounted
to but one piece ot registered mail in
Of the irrecoverable losses, 232 involved
official matter, such as postage tl.-iinps
and stamped paper dispatched to post
masters, leaving C20 private looses As
compared with other years the loves woie
heavy, due mainly to the greater number
of railroad and steamboat accidents.
During the first session of the last
Congress a bill was introduced in the
House cf Representatives favoring In
dcmnity for losses of first-clans registered
mail matter to the extent of actual values,
hi no case, however, to exceed $10 ror
otic registered piece. This bill was favor
abl reported by the House Committee on
Postoff ices and Post Roads, but no further
action was taken
Twenty-seven of the principal countries

where almost certainty of detection deters
the weak and wicked from crime. Because
of the speedy dispatcli and delivery or mat.
matter it Is expected by the postal officials
that money will continue to be sent through
the mails. They urge that If money let

are a constant source of temptation, and a
considerable portions of the fund for salar
ies and expenses of postoffice inspectors
is useil for the detection of depredators
upon such letters in the ordinary mail.
If the sworn value of each piece or

THITSTS NOT TO TROFIT.
Senator Pettifrrew'.s Amendment to
the Tariff Hill.
Senator PetUgrcw yesterday gave notice
or an amendment to the tanfr bill, de
signed to prevent the raising of prices
on idl articles upon which duties are Im
posed. It is proposed to admit f;eo of
duty all articles where it is shown that
the same kind or articles of domestic
production are under the influence of a
tiast, or the price affected by a Must or
combination, to increase the Co-;t or said
articles to purchasers, by preventing com
petition or otherwise. Where it is shown
that a domestic article competing with a
foreign product is controlled in any way
by a trust, then the duty upon the foreign
article shall be relieved and the same im
It is provided that every contract or
combination In the form of a truster as
sociation or corporation whose effect is
to restrict or increase the quantity of
production or increase the price of any
article, or any conspiracy in restraint of
trade shall be deemed a trust. Any citizen
of the United States may fib? a petfiion
in any United States district court, set
ting forth the allegations as to the ex
istence or a trust, and the president or
chief officer or members of the partner
ship shall be required to answer the same.
Such caes are to be advanced on the
docket and have precedence over all civil
cauces. If the decision of the court shall
be that the allegations of the petition
arc true that a trust is affecting the
domestic article, the customs officers shall
be directed to permit the free Importation
of the competing article; provided, that
where a duty is levied upon raw material,
or any article that is improved by any
process after being imported, the duty on
the raw material or unrefined or unim
proved article, shall be collected.

London financial circles are disturbed by
the fact tbat the London money market
is at the mercy of the Japanese govern
ment. Immense sums of Chinese Indemnity
money have been paid to Japan from time
to tlmo tlnougli the Bank of England. An
enormous balance has been allowed to re
main at the bank for many mouths, and this
linsproved a frequent source of difficulty
both to the bank und the financial situa
Uon. There is nothing to prevent Japan
from depleting the supply of gold at any
moment. This supply ordinarily amounts
to 35,000,000, Which is 10,000,000
less than It was a year ago. The.. Japanese
authorities this week -withdrew nearly 2r
000,000, thereby reducing the bank's sup
ply of gold 0 per cent. The return issued
by the bank today shows gold on hand to
the amount of 33,000000, The rate of
count of the baakr, ivhioh -was reduced
to 2 1-2 per cent on Arril 8, was not
changed at today's weekly meeting, but
the directors are seriously considering
how to meet or avoid the embarrassment
which may be occasioned by a sudden with
drawal of the remainder of the Japanese
balance in coin or bullion. Another in
stallment of -12,250,000 indemnity money
is due to Japan for China next month.
The New York stock market showed
something of a holiday spirit yesterday,
with an indisposition to do anything that
was very marked, and with a heavy and
most unpromising tone. Curiously enough
little further attention has been given to
the New York Central funding plan or to
reports that the Burlington management
is also considering the feasibility or the
refunding or Its 7 per cent bonds atalower
rate anil thus decreasing the possibility of
deficit after dividends. The success of
the New York Central project ought to
have" acted favorably on the market if
anything would. It was the best news
that railroad properties have had for the
direct In a long time. Trices went off
all along the list yesterday.
Gas continued to be the Interesting
feature of the market yesterday. Deal
ings were large, though not nearly up to
the immense record of G6,IW0 shares the
day before. The consolidation bill has
een introduced into the Illinois legis
lature, and Chicago Gas, after some early
weakness, was fairly strong on good sup
port. The fake bill introduced by the
committee or municipalities or the Illinois
senate, reducing the price of gas In Chi
cago from $1 to 00 cents, seemed to have
no particular effect. Neitner did the re
ported opposition or the Civic Federation
of Chicago to the consolidation or gas in
terests, though the Civic Federation is said
to be a strong organization.

The picturesque rumor'that Barney Bar

No mere hard-working maiter-of-raitclod

Washington firms are said to be selling
shorten Sugar on a large scale. Moore .t
Schley were selling Sugar a good part of
yesterday, and the day before there were
Immense sales by this firm and others. In
the Sugar trade the talk Is gloomy, because
of the reduced rates due to the fulling off
in demand. The trade still cherishes Its
gloomy view of the Dlngley bill, and pre
dicts par, or less, for Sugnr, If it becomes
a law. There is no question of the capacity
or the Sugar company to earn its dividend
under this law. It Is still thought by
shrewil traders that the company wantu
its stock down at present, and would not
object to par while the right is on.

Chicago, April 15. All the considera
tions in wheat this morning were decidedly
bullish and the market sold up promptly.
The buying was general, with larger
commission house trading, than during
any recent session. The crop scare element
is rurnishad in the almost sensational Illinois
State report, and the Price Current's tardy
ad.nissiou or unfavorable report Tor spring
and winter w.ieat A London cable stated
that the political situation was critical.
May wheat opened from 63 5-8 to
G8 7-8, as against the close last night, at
CS 1-lc. There was, an early rally irom
opening figures of a full cent.
Northwestern, receipts were 271 cars,
against 204 a week ago, and 295 a tear
ago; lor-al receipts only 10 cart, with 7
expected for tomorrow. Withdrawals from
store were 3J,000 bushel-. There have
