JOHN W. POTTER.
Friday, March 15, 1889.
Tbb first change made by the adminis
tration was the removal of aa employe at
the White house named George Hemp
bill, a Pennsylvania veteran appointed by
President Cleveland. The first blow
track a soldier.
Xzveb, in the hintdry of thTs country,
has there been such a scramble for public
office and spoils of war, as is now going
on in the ranks of the morality party.
Harrison is harraased day and night by
the hungry hordes.. The statement comes
from Washington that his family is dig
'tressed by the fear that he will break
down in the face of the insatiable orav
ins of the hungry spoilsmen, lie is
trying to throw pretty much all the re
sponsibility upon the members of con
trress, and they in turn, are sneaking
about through the corridors of the capitol
in order to avoid the very hungry and
very numerous mob of cormorants, whe
are waiting for a grab at the public crib.
An observer asks the Indianapolis
Sentinel why Ben Harrison's old regiment
(the Seventieth Indians) has 700 sur
vivors, while the average regiment of In
diana volunteers has only 150 survivors.
Also how many speeches Law Partner
and Atty-Gen. W. H. II. Miller made
for Greeley in 1S72. We are unable to
answer either question says the paper
alluded to. The members of Ben Har
rison's old regiment seem, for some
reason or other, to have escaped the or
dinary vicissitudes of life, and, judging
from all accounts, it bas more members
now than it bad at the end of the war.
Partner Miller was very active in the
Greeley campaign. lie made a good
many t peecbes, and very bitter ones they
were, too, in behalf of Greeley and the
whole democratic ticket. This is really
the most creditable pnrt of Partner Mil
ler's political record.

A Thoughtful Flan.
The C, B & Q. railroad company has
established a system of insurance for its

In the bouse the most important transaction
was the postponement of consideration of the
Chicago drainage bill to April 11. There was
a sharp light over this measure, and a lively
scramble for votes when it was seen
that the mo ion for postponement
would carry. Mayor Roche and other
Chicagoans worked like beavers among
Republicans who had voted to
postpone, while J idge Ptendergast used his
persuasive eloquence upon the Democrats.
On the other sid Jones of Sangamon was
active rallying tbo enemies of the measure.
All who voted for postponement, however,
were not enemies of the btlL This was the
case with Lester, of Sangamon, and the
struggle for his vote was almost amusing.

The lad's story, as gleaned by the officer,

Charisto.v, M. C, March 15. The
coroner's inquiry iuto the killing of Capt
Dawson was concluded yesterday. Police
man Gordon detailed a conversation be had
with Dr. McDow When the latter surrendered
himself. The only material fact brought out

ing and that he heard the words:

through the window of the doctor's office and
was ordered away by McDow' cook, Emma
Drayton. Emma Drnyton, the cook, denied
all knowledge ot the killing of Capt Dawson,
except that she heard the pistol shot She
contradicted much of the testimony of the
The coroners jury rendered a verdict to
the effect that the deceased came to his death
at the hands of Dr. McDow, and that the
killing was malicious. The jury also held
the colored office servant of Dr. McDow as
accessory after the fact
INVASION OF OKLAHOMA.
Boomers Complete Arrangements A Tel

Pcrcell, L T., March 15. Oklahoma Bill
spent yesterday in visiting the boomer camp
here and consulting with the leaders. Ar
rangements for entering the coveted territory
were completed, and Harry Hill loft to-day
for Oklahoma prairie. Fires, claimed to
have been started by boomers Wednesday
night have burned about fifty miles of graz
ing land and several cattle. Cattlemen en
deavored yesterday to frighteu Hill out of
Puroell, but failed.
The following message was sent by Hill to
President Harrison: " l"he situation in Okla
homa is critical It is a netional necessity to
have action at once in Oklahoma. If the
thousands of actual honest settlers clamoring
for admission are deprived of the right tOset
tleraent until too late to make a crop it will
be a severe disappointment, and w ili cause
actual starvation on the border."
Young Slg-el Pleads (iuilty.
New York, March 16. Robert Sigel has
pleaded guilty of forging a blind pensioner's
name to two checks. The penalty for each
offence is ten years' imprisonment. Sentence
was deferred. Sigel bad pleaded not guilty,
but the evidence was so overwhelmingly
against him that a trial could have had but
one result, and by pleading guilty be will
doubtless escaie punishment for the other
offences with which be is charged. The
young man seems completely broken down.

THE NIPSIC STILL AFLOAT,
And the Satnnnn Situation as Peaceable a
Could tie fcxpected.
Auckland, March 15. Advices just re
ceived from Samoa show that there was ne
basis for the sensational rumor of an engage
ment between the United States man-of-war
Nipsie and the German corvette Olga. Far
from this, the German officials in the island
have entirely given up their aggressive pol
icy. The proclamation of martial law bas
been iublicly withdrawn, and tho Germans
have abandoned all claim to the right of
searching incoming vessels for articles con
tra band of war.
Both these steps have met with the hearty
approval of all formga residents at Apia, and
have had a quietiug effct. Unusual tran
quality prevails throughout the Island.
Mataafa, however, has a force of troops
estimated to be 0,000 strong. Tamasese's
army consists of ahout 700 men. The nien-of-war,
German, American and English, still
remain at Apia ready for any emergency
that may arise.
