Yesterday Just beforelenving for his trip
nto the Berkshire Ifllls, the President
named another machine inun for office
when lie appointed Congressman Wilbon as
postmaster of Brooklyn. Now comes the
interview in New York yesterday of Vie
President IIob.tit with Piatt and Presi

Ihe Vice President did not submit, to an
interview foru.ally but this statement
was giwu out by authority.
It Is further understood that Vice Presi
dent Tlobart is to Lave an interview with
I lie PrcoidPul during Ills absence in Mara
Jhuelts and It is quite probable that the
errand upon which he will seek the Presi
dent is tlie UiMUA-iun of the situnUon in
'New York." Flncu Mr. Plait left Wash
ington tlie other day, after reaching a
thorough uuoemandiiig with the President,
lie has beet, hard at work preparing for
the approaching struggle, and getting his
forces in fighting trim. The preliminary
skirmish uicr.rrod lat night, when the
prir. aries in Brooklyn were held.

that th" Tegular llcpubhcaus were stand

who were bolstering up the Seth Low

head and frtmt oi the CiUzeas' Union, wa

stronglKilds were captured. It i said there
will be a. big majority against hlin hi the

would not have more than a. meager third.
Mr. Plait i 'oBfioently expecting some

COMMENTS ON FAYSON'S DEATH.
Friends Attrlbnte It to Tils Treat
ment D3 the President.
Manv of the friends of Mr. Walter E.
Fa yson, late solicitor or the State Depart
ment, itgard his death as directly at
tributable to the manner in which he was
treated by the President. He was ap
pointed chief of the consular bureau, and
under tbe last Administration, when Judge
Dabney was made professor of law at tbt
UniversUy of Virginia, Fayson succeeded
him- The understanding was that it was a
civil service appointment, and it was cer
tainl so regarded by the last Administra
tion. Nevertheless. Mr. Fayson's place was
wanted, and he was told probably that he
bad to go, and he went In answer to
Inquiries as to cause, he was not satis
fed, and it is said that when lie was told
that Mr. McKinley did not regard him as
under the civil service, he gave up the
contention, knowing then that he was
marked for the slaughter. Mental trouble
and worry, they say, had much to do
with tae untinielj death of thiB very

Columbia Theater, wherethe Castle Square
Opera Company will present DeKoven
and Smith's matchless combination of
lyric beauties and entertaining happen
ius, "The Fencing Master." The work
nas not been grvunin its entirety for some
consideriole time, and the Castle Square
Opera Company's presentation promises
to be something out of theordlnary. Mls
Grace Golden will beFrancesea, a part that
calls for delicate treatment ajul flin lyric

will be with us at the Lafayette next
week. They give for the first time the
great New lork success, the spectacular
operetta, "The Geezer,'' the production
written by Mr. Joseph W. Herbert and
which played for ISO consecutive nights
in New York city. They have made new
and special scenery and electric effects,
and bring a company comprising forty
people, witli rich and costly costumes of
entirely new designs, which will assure
the patruns of this house a rare treat.
The play pictures the teahouse in China,
with its attendant pretty serving maids
Li Hung Chang's departure for America
his arrival in New York, a grand reception
tendered hi:n by his countrymen in China-,
town, his many perplexing experiences, his
contlnucasli' increasing difficulties, his
Jitgu&t wivh all things American, then his
deoartute for home and his reception by
the Emperor. Tiie play is full of funny
situations, and with the new and catchy
songs ami music should be one of the
good attractions of the season.
The Grand wHl have next week Davis
& Keogh's production, "Fallen Among
Thieves." It tells a simple but power
ful storj of country and city life. Real
heart interest centers in the heroine's
midnight elopement, In her subsequent
awakening to the perils that surround her,
when uhe finds tlmt she has been de
ceived and brought as a decoy to the
gilded gambling palace; In the heart
broken father's unwavering faith and
hia tireless search for his wayward child;
the startling part played by the mother;
the soul-stirring rescue when a fearless
woman dives into the river of real water
to save the heroine's life, and the final
denouement, all are absorbing features
of a thrilling plot which no stronger im
agery has been set upon the mimic stage
Iu many a day.
The play abounds in sensational ef
fects, Martling climaxes in stirring scenes,
the lepresentatlon of High Bridge, New
Sort, showing all its massive and ponder
ous details, being particularly effective.
"With this scene as tlie background, a
young girl dives headlong from the top
most point of the bridge into the Harlem
River, fifty feet belew, a perilous feat
of daring that thrills the heart and makes
the pulse tingle
