Washinotom City, March 16. The ad
journment of the senate until Monday has
given the president an opportunity to look
around him and select a list of appointees for
the senator to talk about next week. But
the gossip as to who thoee lucky ones wilt be
goes right along, and the im a'ience of those
who want to boo their state "recognized," is,
If anything, on the increase. This is par
ticularly tbe case with the Illinois delegation,
if reports are to lie credited. One prominent
Illinoisan is said to have poured into the ear
of Secretary Halford a very vigorous com
plaint, which he wound tip by expressing a
hope that at least he would he permitted to
name the postmaster in his own town.
The fight wages very warm on public
printer. The list from which the appoint
ment will be niatle is as follows: August
DonatJh, of Chester, Pa. ; Capt. IV. M. Mere
dith, of Chicago; Capt. Holloway, of Indian
apolis; ex-Congressman Nichols, of North
Carolina; Maj. A. Z. 8. Davis, of Minnea)o
lis, and Mr. Osborne, of Los Angeles, CoL
The Californians are pushing their man and
are hopeful, not to say sanguine, of suocena;
but thoy are, like the others, without any as
surance fsom the president.
In fact that is what troubles the most of
the politicians who are here wh the purpose
or loosing after trie interests of their friends.
The president is a good listener, hut i.evor.
commits himself until the official list is sunt
to the senate. He hears what his callers
have to say, and beyond a remark that plain
ly implies that there are two or three other
people who are just as anxious as his callers.

Among the new names now iut forward
for a place is that of Stephen A. Douglas,
who is uamod for a district attorneyship in
Illinois. Ho has strong backing. All hut
one of the judjjtw of Cook county have in
dorsed him, the exception being Judge Col
lins, who is for Maj. Adair. Leonard Swett,
Robert T. Lincoln and many other promin
ent and influential men have written per
sonal letters to the president and the attorney
general on behalf of Mr. Douglas, who is
also recommended by Rev. Dr. Harrows, of
whose church he is a member, and by Kev.
It is said that in the fight for collector of

the Illinois men. Corporal Tanner is leading

Mr. Clarkson, the newly confirmed first as-
sitttini postmaster general, arrived at thtjle-
partmoiit shortly before j o'clock yesterday.
He was received by CoL Stevenson and the
netb was administered to him by Judge Law
ransoii. Ho was then introduced to the em
ployes of tbe office.
Col. Stevenson will leave for home next
week. He has a new card which he is pass

get his seat as governor of West Virginia,
and to straighten up affairs there, has re
turned to Washington, and had an interview
with the president yesterday.
It is said that the president's choice for the
English mission is Chauncey Depew, but that
the suggestion of New Workers he has
been considering the nams of Evarts. War
ner Miller s friends think ha deserves this
mission, but if he can not have it the way
ought to be opened for him to reach the
senate by sending Evarts to England. It is
believed that Evarts does not want to tare
the senate, that Warner Millers's chances for
the mission are not very good, and that De
pew will probably take the prize. Blaine's
choice is still said to be . Reid, but he would
be quite willing to compromise on Depew
rather than cause any rupture in his relations

THE PRESIDENT AND DUDLEY.
n Interesting Tarn Current Kejrardlng
Thelr Delations A Robust Denial.
Washington Citt, March 1C There has
been current of late in political circles a
piece of gossip, said to be well verified,
which has caused a great deal of comment.
It is stated that a few after tbe president ar
rived in Washington a note was sent by Pri
vate Secretary Halford to CoL W. "W. Dud
ley, to the effect that the president sympa
thized deeply with him on account of the
srlticism and obloquy cast upon him by r Ba
ton or bis alleged "blocks of Ave" letter,
but requested him not to call or attempt
my personal communication, as it
might embarrass the incoming ad
ministration. CoL Dudley, piqued and
(hagrined, replied that he was not in need of
lympathy from any one; that he had done
nothing of which he was ashamed, and that
be had no favors to ask. At the inaugura
tion ball Col. and Mrs. Dudley met face to
face the president and Mrs. Harrison and
were presented with hundreds of others. The
president greeted CoL Dudley as if he were a
perfect stranger, but after hesitating a mo
ment presented Mrs. Dudley to Mrs. Har
rison. Much Ill-feeling among the Repub
licans is said to have grown out of these cir
cumstances. The above story was pronounced bymost
who heard it to be too absurd to obtain cre-
lenoe anywhere, but as it was published in
Philadelphia and Baltimore, Mr. Halford
was asked about it yesterday. He replied:
"Tha.'s a lie, pure and simple."

and that this was done, was shown to Dr.

"Yes, it ia true that a large number of
Harrison campaign documents were sent out

THE NEGRO PROBLEM.

Baltimow, March 18. A special from
Richmond, Va., says: Secretary of the
Commonwealth Henry W. FlournejUnade a
speech Thursday night before the Powhattan,
Richmond's crack Democratic club. His
theme was "The Negro Problem." Mr
Flourney, in the course of his remarks said

great question would be the final disfran
chisement of t he colored man. This, he be
lieved, would be brought about by northern
men settling i l the south find realizing the
true condition of affairs and creating a senti

Democratic state committee I would kick out
of tbe party any speaker who alluded to the

Washington City, March 16. The cabi

Ottawa, Ilia, l arch 16. The supreme

claimed that the record was untrue in de
claring that tbe pai ties were in court when
tbe decision was rendered, and that the sen
tence of the court as therefore illegal. The
court decided that t ie supreme court is not a
trial court of review to pass upon the record
of the court below end discover what error,
if any, exists. It wc uld be preposterous to
expect that prisoner should he brought from
a distant jail or penitentiary to be present at

mere form of law in this court, and could
not be otherwise construed.

more mystery gathers around the tragedy.
It is now learned that McDow was actually

the day of the murder, the inference being
that he was aeekiug on interview with the
Swiss maid, who seems to have been the cause
of tbe murder. When tbe body of CoL Daw
son was taken to his house it was clothed in a
shirt only. The coat, vest, and, overcoat

Glance Over the Week's Traf
A FEW THINGS THAT DID EOT 000UB
Business Slowly Improving He avjr Fall In
the Price of Copper Iron Manufactures
In the Damps Prospects of Lower Prices
for Wheat Situation In the Railway De
psrtmeiit -The Money Market Not an
Inciting Topic The Failures.
New York, March M R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of the trade says: The past
week has been free from exciting events, and
the news has been mostly negative. War
with Germany has not begun at Apia, the
copper syndicate has not been suddenly re
constructed, the March report of the agri
cultural department does not foreshadow a
famiuoin wheat The new administration
has not suddenly disturbed the finances, and
the consent of Commissioner Walker to
serve as executive of the Inter-state associa
tion has not lifted prices of stocks. Business
is still comparatively quiet, but slowly im
proving, and the great strike of the weavers
at Fall River is not expected to last long
enough to disturb trade.
The great fall In the price of copper, from
about ) to 50 per ton at London, appears
to have come to stay, and consumers in this
country are looking for much lower prices
when contracts run out in June.
The monthly report of iron furnaces in
blast, contrary to general expectation, shows
a Blight increase in February, the output
reaching 14!,775 tons weakly March 1, against
about 10S,500 last year. The persistent over
production has not affected prices during the
past week, and they remain unchanged, but
there are fewer signs of a disposition to buy
Deyond immediate needs. While holders
hope that prices are at bed-rock, consumers
urge that the demand for finished products
Is scanty. Tbe market for bar iron is pro
nounced the poorest for manyiyears; the de
mand for car-budding and skelp iron has
fallen off to almost nothing, and while there
is more demand for plate iron, and the move
ment of pipe is fair for tbe season, structural
iron is gloomy, nails show no improvement
and are demoralized, and st'el rails are
quoted at $27.50. ;
The government report showing 112,000.-
000 bushels of wheat in farmers' hands is re
garded by operators as an argument for
lower prices. With the visible supply 32,
000,000 bushels there is thus in sight about
81,000,000 bushels more than will be required
for food and sued until July 1, and there is
besides a Urge stock on tbe Pacific coast. In
country elevators, and in the hands of trad
ers not included in the visibly supply, and
probably more than the ordinary stock of
flour on hand, the winter having been open.
When it is considered that the ordinary stock
of flour would probably exceed 30.000.000
bushels of wheat, and that last year's exports
of wheat and flour, March 1 to July 1, cover
but 3K,Ol0,000 bushels, the prospect of scar
city seems remote. The price has fallen 4
cents for the week, with sales of 35,000,000
bushels here. Corn is 1 cent lower and oats
cunt. Pork products are unchanged.
l tie stoclc market has been weak and prices
have declined an average of (1 per share.
The consent of Commissioner Walker to
manage the Inter-State association does not
outweigh the fact that rates are again being
cut, and part of the roads deemed esseutial
to the success of the plan have not vet as
sented. The traffls returns continue fairly
ahead of last year's, however, and the root of
the difficulty is still dissatisfaction of inves
tors with the manner in w hich corporations
have been managed.
The reports from the interior this week al
most uniformly indicate some improvement
in business, though the compluint of slow col
lections is about as general as before. At
Philadelphia the caution of drv goods buvers.
the scanty purchases of wool by spinners and
the hesitation of iron consumers are especial
ly noted, but there is improvement in leather,
liquors, groceries and cattle.
Money at all interior markets remains in
ample supply, while at Milwaukee, Detroit
and a few minor oints improvement in the
demand is observed. The treasury has taken
in during the week only f40,UNj more than
it paid out, and no change in financial
policy is announced. On the whole,
while the improvement in trade is slow and
narrow, it is clearly helped by the failure of
wheat and copjer speculations, and by the
movement of prices toward a lower leveL
For the week the decline in average prices of
commodities has been nearly half of 1 per
cent, and since March 1 about three-fourths
of 1 per cent.
The business failures during the last seven
days number for the United Slates 223, and
for Canada 88, or a total of 2il, as compared
with a total of U8l last week, and 232 the
week previous to the last. For the week of
last year corresxmding the figures were 223,
made up of 2J2 in the United States and 26
in tbe dominion of Canada.
IMPORTANT TRAFFIC COMPACT
Between the Baltimore & Ohio and
BPaiLDELmiA, March 10. A special dis
patch from Er.e says that the Anchor Line
Transportation company has f irmed an im
portant compact with the Baltimore & Ohio
railroad. The Anchor company, whose
headquarters ore in Philadelphia, and whose
home port is at Erie, has contracted to
handle all of the Baltimore & Ohio's lake
traffic and bring it to Erie, and has con
tracted for extensive warehouses in Erie for
the Baltimore & Ohio traffic. This new ar
rangement consolidates the Baltimore & Ohio
business and brings it from Bandi.sky and
other ports to Erie.
Tbe Anchor line officials say that the con
tract will add about SO per cent to their
traffic. The new arrangement has compelled
the Pennsylvania company 'to put in about
tauO.OOO worth of improvements in which to
handle the Baltimore & Ohio traffic by the
way of the Erie & Pittsburg railway to
