The President "Will Seek Solitndo la

Cabinet Meeting Before He De
parts Military Post for the Klou
dilie Appuictmeuts Announced.
Tha President will seek a refuge from
officeseekers on Tuesday next, wlicn lie
aud Secretnry Alger will leave Washington
for Adams, lima., where they will be the
guesth of "W. B. Plaunkett, an intimate
friend of the Secretary. During thclr
istay they will take a coaching trip through
the Berkshire hills. It is understood that
there will be one more Cabinet meeting
before he departs.
At the metting yufclcrday, although two
hours uud a half was .spent in discussion,
little of general interest was developed.
A great many smaller matters of depart
ment ai routine which had come up during
his absence were talked over, and others
wlii'-n may Arise in the nextmouth as well.
The Klondike matter came in for an
other discussion. It -was decided that h
post be established at St. Michaels. There
are immense quantities of provisions at the
Wand at the mouth of the Yukon, -which,
it is Mild, there is very little probability
of getting up the river this "Winter. Tho
military post, though not ostensibly tor
tills purpose, -will really be on guard duty
over these provisions. Secretary Alger has
the matter in charge, but has not yet
made any- arrangements for the execu

post, or from where the troops will be

ei arrived early and had a short con
versation with the President- The noml
nation of Mr Hicks for 'postmaster at
Philadelphia waB one of the subjects of
tho conference. Mr. Hicks is sure o
tbe appointment and- has no opposition.
Several consular positions were also talked
about in the conference.
Mr. Hoke Smith, Mr. Cleveland's Sec
retary of the Interior, was an early
caller. Congressman Hurley, of New l'ork
Senator Thurston, of Nebraska, was also
among the few prominent men received.
He had quite an extended conversation
with Mr. McIOuley, a part of which re
lated to future appointments in Nebiaska,
and incidentally the political outlook-In
various States was discus'ed. Mr Thurs
ton has Just returned from New York, and
while there had a conference with a num
ber of leading Republican politicians. It
ib jindfrstood that he said all he could for
Mr. Piatt's argument tliat it is highly im
portant to uphold the regular organiza
tion in the city and State, even thougn
it might be construed as supporting what
is called the "Piatt machine." Senator
Thurston also talked of Ohio politics. He
is soon to go to the Buckeye State to
take part in the campaign He will make
five or six speeches, the first of which
will be del'Vred the latter part of this
month, and the others early in October.
A long list of Interior Department ap
pointments and a few from other depart
ments were announced yesterday. They
were mostly registers of land offices and
Indian ngents. but one or two larger
offices were filled.

Interesting Meeting: uf the "Woman's
National Press Association.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Woman's Kational Press Association was
held at Metzerott's Hall la&t nighC the
president, Mrs. E. S. Cromwell, presiding.
Tho other officers preseut were Mrs. M.
b. Gist, vice president, and Mrs. Mary M.
North, corresiiondlng secretary.
The first speaker of tho evening was
Mrs. G. Ellen Foster, who has recently
been admitted to the District bar. She
chose as her theme,' 'Woman in the coming
campaign." Mrs. Foster dwelt especially
upon the influence of woman in local
politics. It is all nonsense, she said, to ,
say mav city ana Kiaie campaigns uo not
affect national issues. Attention was then
paid to the approaching election iu Greatc
New York, and Mrs. Foster expressed her
belief that this election is one of tne
most important events in the political his
tory of the country. It will show, she said,
Avhether so great a community is capable
uf pelf government; whether it is safe to
put as much power in H12 handsotoneman
as is placed in those of the mayor by the
uew charter, and above all, whether it
is wise to mass such great numbers under
one city government.
She begscd her hearers to pay attention
to the New York campaign, and draw
therefrom - the leph of how great im
portance local politics really are. And
this lesion learned, she urged that they
all pay attention to the issues of their
own citiep, andlend their influence to what
they consider the best side.
Mrs. Foster was followed by MIssFrances
G. French, who read a paper containing an
interesting economic stuay on "The atci

his people render it.
"The question," said Mr. Southwell, "is

HECEPTION TO MINISTERS.
Local "Divines Entertained nt the
Florence Crlttenton Mission.
The reception tendered the minlstera of
the city last evening at the Florence Crit
tenton Home, No. 21S Third street south
east, demonstrated two things first, that
the ministers are Interested in the rescue
work. ami. second , that the home Is accom
plishing a great deal of good.
The visitors were received by Mrs. Kate
Waller Garrett, the genpral superintendent
of the Crlttenton Mission work in the
United States; Mr. Charles Morton, the na
tional secretary, and Mrs. E. Ftilrcbild, the
matt on cr the home. ,
The most interesting portion of the little
colony is, perhaps, the little tots, fifteen
In number, who roam about the immense
building. Their little faces are constantly
wreathed in smile?, for they are well
cared for, each being the special pet of
the matron, Mrs. Falrchild, and the in
mates of the Home.
In all there are at present forty-three
adult and fifteen infant Inmates at the
Home. There are fifty-one other similar
homes scattered over the United States,
where over 3,000 rescued women are
sheltered and cared for.
Mrs. Barrett received a letter yesterday
from Mellen Food Co., which stated that
that firm had adopted tbe local Crlttenton
Hume, and in future would donate all the
products or the company necessary for
use in the nursery.
Refreshments were served to the visi
tors, the inmates, and some of the ludles
interested in rescue work acting as waic-rf-sscs.
