The "masheeiT it muddled. It is rat
tled; it is swearing mad; it is rocky.
The exposure of its manipulators, its
premature promises and pledges bas
caused it to be so. Hence it waa that
ths prociamento went forth last night to
Phil Miller, Pat Carj, M. T. Stafford, Ed.
Wilcox and Steve Hull to deny every
thing. Aud McConochie, the figure-head
candidate of the "masheen." wu ordered
to publish in the "masheen" organ a
proclamation that everything pertaining
to his hating made certain promises was
falsa and without foundation. He did
so. The proclamation appeared in tbe
Eighteenth atreet organ this morning, but
it did not have the desired effect. Hence
tbe "masheen" is still muddled and mad.
Tbe assertion that McConochie's nomi
nation was conditional on his making cer
tain pledges, was not made without
thorough Investigation and tbe fact that
there is scarcely an office within the gift
of tbe mayor, certainly not one of any
importance, that baa not already been
provided for n the event of McCono
chie's election bas not been removed by
"masheen" denials. Not only has the
marshal, deputy marshal and auperin
tendency of water works been promised,
but even others have been provided for
in a manner that may be pretty accurate
ly guessed at were one pressed to do so.
Furthermore half of the police force, if
not the entire force, bas been selected,
and tbe men who are able to be so re
warded If McConochie v. ins, are gutting
in their licks now.
Tbe most ridiculous of the heretofore
unheard of tactics employed by the "ma
sheen," and tbe "masheen" organ in at
tempting to run this campaign upon the
strength of bluffj and misrepresentations,
is tbe attempt to pose Mr. W. A. Guthrie as
a German citizen. We doubt if Mr. Guth
rie appreciates having his nationality
hauled into politics as a mode of winning
him votes, any more than any other can
didate on either ticket would. Every
citizen who is foreign born bas in bis
heart a spark of love for bis mother land,
which, although he may be patriotic in
all bis devotion to tbe country of bis
adoption, is ever cherished; and this bas
never until tbe "masheen" took to run
nlng things, been raised as anything
against him. However, for tbe en
lightenment of the "masheen" and it
feeble mouthpiece, we will say that W.
A. Guthrie is not a German. He is an
Englishman by birth, and we do not know
how long he remained a subject of
Queen Victoria after coming to this
country. Suffice it to say that be did not
take out his final papers until 1831, when
be renounced forever all allegiance to
Queen Victoria. The article that the
"maaheen" had placed in the Vo'.kt Zeit
ung of this week, speaking of Mr.
Guthrie as "our German candidate,'
and wbicb tbe Union was instructed to
copy, as it did, is therefore quite re
Aid. Corken does not attempt to make
rotes on the strength of any sentiment of
nationalities. Though an Irishman, a
fact that he bas no reason to regret, the
"masheen" to the contrary notwith
standing, be bas many friends among the
Germaus as the Irish people, who stood
by him before when he was elected as
they will now. The German people are
too conservative to oppose a man be
cause be is not of their nationality es
pecially when an Englishman is palmed
off on them as a German for the express
purpose of winning their political patronage-

"Washington City, March 29. The senate
In secret session yesterday discussed the nom
ination of Murat Halstead to be minister to
Germany. The nomination wan hotly de
bated, the criticism of Mr. Halstead coming
principally from the Republican side of tha
chamber. The principal causa of grievance
against Mr. Halstead was his criticism of tha
course of certain Republican senators during
the investigation of tha election of Senator
Payne. Tbe criticisms were quoted from a
file of Tbe Cincinnati Commercial Gazette in
the senate chamber by Republican Senators,
Sherman defended Mr. Halstead, while Ingalls
and TelWr led the attack upon him. A vote
on tbe nomination resulted in its rejection,
the Democrats voting solidly against it, and
the votes of Ingalls? Cullom, Farwell, Jones of
Nevada, and Teller being recorded in the
When it was evident that tbe nomination
would be rejected Sherman changed his vote
from affirmative to negative that be might
be in position to enter a motion for reconsid
eration. The motion was entered and was
pending when tbe senate adjourned.
Tbe result of the vote on the nomination
surprised Sherman, chairman of tbe commit
tee which reported it favorably. It is said
that he demanded an explanation of tbe vote !
of Republican senators, threatening that if tha
nomination was rejected without causa he
would oppose the confirmation of every
other nomination that came before tbe sen
ate. A motion to lay on the table Sherman's
motion to reconsider waa withdrawn on this
appeal, and the debate on the nomination
then ensued, senators speaking to tbe motion
of Sherman. Tbe exact vote is said to have
been 26 to 13, a number of Republican sent
tors withholding their votes and only enough
voting to moke tha desired quorum.
Mr. Halstead's friends will rally to his
support, and endeavor to obtain a reversal
of yesterday's judgment Beck and Black
burn are quoted as saying that they will vote
for Mr. Halatead. A Republican senator
stated that If the nomination was not with
drawn it would be rejected. Mr. Halstaad's
friends my that it will not be withdrawn.
John C. New's nomination waa confirmed
without trouble, there being but two votes
First Assistant Postmaster General Clark
son's ax is swinging with great regularity
and effect, and every day the official heads of
many fourtb-elass postmaster drop into tbe
limbo of wantod-no-lonifer. Mr. Ciarkson
was questioned yesterday about- his rapid
work in this line. He said: "Perhaps It is
not generally known that my predecessor,
within a month or six weeks prior to March
4, mad over 1,000 appointments of fourth
class postmasters for tie purpose, apparently,
of foreinj them upon this administration.
This course had never been pursued, to my
knowledge, by any previous administration
During the last several weeks of President
Arthur's term not a single fourth olass post
master was appointed, except in rare in
stances where tbe exigencies of the service
demanded it, and when Postmaster General
Hatton resigned there were mora than 3,000
resignations on file In his office. Tbe com
missions of tbe thousand appointees of my
predecessor were, of course, withheld, and
these vacancies, with others, are now being
filled as rapidly as possible.'' He added that
practically all tbe changes were being made
for other than political reasons.
The president is experiencing a great deal
of trouble In finding a suitable man for pub
lic printer. Gen. Harrison has a very exalted
opinion of this office, and in conversation
with a senator yesterday acknowledged that
be had not yet found a man big enough for
tb place. Tbe president point. 1 out that
tbe law require a praoti'-al printer, and
tha office requires a man of large
executive ability whose honesty is un
impeachable. Millions of dollars pass
through this office every year, and there is
n check upon tha public, printer. For these
reasons Gen. Harrison has decided to move
very slowly la the matter of this appoint
ment and wait until he can find a man who
combines all the requirement of this im
portant post It is not at all likely that ao
appointment will be made until after tbe
senate adjourns. Another appointment that
will not bo acted upon for some time is that
of a justice of tbe supreme court to succeed
Justice Matthews. Tbe president told one of
the justice yesterday that he intended to
give this matter long and careful considera
tion before acting.
A cold and rainy forenoon yesterday did
not afford any respite to President Harrison
from tbe army of callers office-seekers and
other that congregate at tbe executive
mansion every day. In fact, the crowd yes
terday was as large as it has been any day
since Gen. Harrison's Inauguration. The
lobbies and waiting rooms of tbe mansion
were crowded during tbe entire morning, and
long after noon, when the hours set apart
for visitors should end, they were still
comfortably filled. Three members of the
cabinet Proctor, Noble and Wanamaker
had interviews with the president The lat
ter remained for a long time, and incurred
tb displeasure of some of tbe waiting appli
cant for office. Among those who saw the
president was ex-Marshall Norton, of Texas,
who is noted for the wealth of hair on his
face and head, having vowed never to shave
nor cut his hair until Henry Clay was elect
ed president Then there were senators and
representatives by dozens, some with people
in tow, who know what they are here for,
and other with big bundles of papers of
people who know what they want
It is probable that most of tbe railway mail
emploves who were removed by the Demo
cratic administration will be returned to their
old places at once. The matter bas been
further canvassed, and the department has
decided to take up the cases of these men at
onoe, and if tbeir records prove good they
will be reinstated without further delay. The
order by which the railway mail service goes
underfcivil service rules takes effect in July,
which leaves abundant time for all applica
tions for reinstatement to be examined.

Dille, of Indiana, to be register of tbe land
office at Guthrie, L T. ; Charles E. Montelth,
of Idaho, to be agent for the Indians of tbe
Ne Perces Indiau agency in Idaho. William
Jenney was nominated for postmaster at
Mount Clemens, Mich.
Commissioner of Pension Tanner has ap
pointed A. W. Fisher, of North Carolina,
chief clerk of tbe pension office, in place of
W. F. .Brock, resigned. Mr. rishor was
chief clerk under Commissioner Dudley, and
acted as Assistant chief clerk under Gen.
It is stated that tbe president said a few
days ago that be did not intend to make a
change in the office or commi-wioner of rail
roads, now held by Joseph E. Johnston.
Gen. Sherman, it is saiJ, has made a special
request that Gen. Johnston be retained. The
commission? is now 62 years of age, but in
spite of his advanced rears he is able to at
tend to tbe business of the offi -e.
"BOB" LINCOLN'S NOMINATION.
England Well Ploaoud. but Boston Not Sat
Ufied with Hit "Cultuah." .
London, March 29. Salisbury learned of
Mr. Robert Lincoln's appointment as minis
tor to England through Viscount Cran borne
Wednesday night The latter was dining at
Earl Cowper's bouse in St. Jamee square
where the cable dispatch announcing tbe ap
pointment was rd. The viscount hurried
to Lord Salisbura bouse In Arlington street
and communicated tbe news to tbe premier,
who was surprised, but expressed himself
pleased at tbe ap join tment
Mr. Lincoln's appointment is universally
approved here, w here he is known better as
tbe son of Abrahun Lincoln than for any in
dividual merit The papers, while they
speak favorably rf the new minister, do net
make much comment, because they know
very little of M . Lincoln. Tbe American
colony in London bas already begun prepar
ations for a suit jle reception to the new in
cumbent of tbe diplomatic office.
Washington C ity, March 2J. The Post,
commenting on ox-Secretary Lincoln's ap
pointment as m niater to England, says:
"President Harrison surprised the politician
by naming Robert Lincoln as minis tor to
Great Britain Elis name bas not heretofore
been mentioned in connection with that place,
and from all indications Lincoln was out of
politics. It is regarded as a good
one for a variety f reasons. As secretary of
war Mr. Lincoln's record was a good one,
and since be retirtd from that position be has
minded bis own business and kept out of the
turmoil of selfish politics."
Boston, Mass., March 29. The papers
here generally approve tbe appointment of
Hon. Robert T. Lincoln to the British mis
sion, but with the reservation that be lacks
culture. The Advertiser say it means a
dignified and able representative, but not so
brilliant in speech and diction as we have
had in Motley, Lowell and Phelps. The
Globe says both G -ant and Lincoln were ap
pointed because of their fathers' greatness,
but that Lincoln has ability whila Grant ha
none. The Herald alone U unqualit-jd in it
approval. It says: "Two things are plain
about this appoin anent first, it is unexcep
tionable; secondly, it was made by tbe presi
dent, and in match. g it he gave proof that be
has a mind of his own, and that he know
bow to secure respect for his wishes.".
COLOR LINE IN THE CHURCH.
South Carolina Episcopalians Trying
Coiuprou lte the Question.
Baltimore, Ml., March 29. The Sun's
special from Charleston, S. C, says: There-
port of the commit tee appointed by the South

tant Episcopal cb'irch, to try and settle the
color question, recommends a compromise
which proposes to Admit such colored clergy
men to tbe convention as have been in con
neotiou with the church a year prior to
May IS, 18S, when tbe convention
meets at Anderson. It also proposes
separate congregation for the colored
churches under the ministration of the bish
op. No provision in made for the admission
of colored lav delegates. A prominent ves
tryman of St Maria, the aristocratic colored
church here, said last night that the terms
would not be accented. "We won't secede
from the church," he aaid "We shall sim
ply wait, aud if br rred out of the diocesan
convention we shall carry tbe case to the
general convention" A to whether St
Mark's would continue to pay its contribu
tion to diocesan conventions be was not pre
pared to say. The question promises to be
a burning one at tie coming couvoution.

Nltw York, March 99. The World says:
C P. Huntington has strengthened his grip
on the railway system of California, accord
ing to the latest accounts, and has succeeded
in carry .'ng through a plan by which he baa
arranged for a consolidation of nearly all the
roads north of the Sacramento river. To do
this he has inflated tbe stock of the Southern
Pacific Railroad company to the astounding
sum of 1160,000,000. Until recently the total
capital stock of the Southern Pacific com
pany was 1100,000,000, of which 8S,-
6,200 had been issued, but Wednes
day notice was sent to the secre
tary of th stock exchange that the capital
stock had been increased by $50,000,000 and
that 400,000 shares ot the par value of $40,
000,000 would be issued, which would make
tbe total amount outstanding $128,076,200.
Whatever became of the 112,000,000 unissued
stock or what is to become of the additional
$10,000,000 not to be issued are questions
which perhaps some stockholder may like
answered. Since Mr. Huntington has been
weet be has arranged for a consolidation of a
dozen or more roads which will be known a

The Iowa Lines Kedurinr Expen
Mason Citt, la., March 29. The railroads
of Iowa have commenced their war for tbe
repeal of tbe state railway law. Tbey
claim that the practical operation of
tha law has entailed upon them heavy loss.
Tbey bava decided to reduce the number of
passenger trains, by taking off all express
trains and making every train carry fright
and even stock as well as passengers. Tbe
Central Iowa will adopt a new schedule Mon
day and take off two of their four passenger
trains. The remaining two will be mixed.
It is stated in railroad circles here that all
the other roads in tbe state will do likewise
early in April. The scheme has aroused much
Indignation aud is regarded mainly as a bluff
on the part of the railroads to compel the en
actment of laws mora favorable to them. If
the roads persist in it an appeal will be made
to the courts to secure tbe accommodations

vere Wound to Ulnilf.
Biruinoham, Ala., March 29. Blockton,
a small mining station on the Birmingham
Mineral railroad, was the scene Wednesday
night of a most daring attempt at safe-rob
bery. B. M. Huey, Jr., the Southern express
ageut there, bad just received a package con
taining $7,000 to be used by tbe Cahoba Coal
Mining company in paying off. It being too
late for delivery, Mr. Huey deposited the
money in his safe. About 10 o'clock he waa
startled by a voice from behind exclaiming:
Hold your hands up.
The expressman turned to behold two men
with blackened faces presenting revolvers at
him. Mr. Huey very quickly grabbed bis
revolver uear by, and the shots from the
foremost revolver and his owu were simulta
neous. Huey staggered back and the rob
bers fled. The firing brought citizens of tbe
village to the siatiou. Not fiftv yards from
the station tbe dead body of one of the would-
be robbers was found. lie waa a laree
white man, roughly dressed, wearing two
coats, and was identified as a man named

EULOGIES ON JOHN BRIGHT.
Gladstone to Pronounce One In tb Com
mons Salisbury's Tribute.
London-, March 29. Gladstone returned
last night from Scotland, where he has buried
his brother, to pronounce a eulogy over tbe
remains of a man who, until recent years,
had been his close friond and associate for
half a life time. It is expec ted that his eu
logy on John Bright in the bouse of com
mons will be one of tha most masterful ef
forts of his life. Not a seat will be empty on
the floor of the bouse, and the applications
for admission to the galleries is so great that
scarcely one-tcutb of those d.-sirous of at
tending can be aecommodMtol
In the house of peers last even nut Lord
Salisbury pronounced a eulogy upon John
Blight He paid a glowing tribute to tbe
memory of the dead man, who, he said, was
the greatest master of English oratory of tbe
present generation. "He possessed," said the
apeaker,"a singular rectitude of character
and inspired bis followers to pure patriot
ism." All the evening papers are filled with bio
graphical sketches and anecdotes of the great
Englishman just dead. On this occasion, at
least, the ancient injunction to "xpeak no ill
of the dead" is faithfuly carried out
The Times, in a leading article referring to
the universal tributes to John Brlght's mem
ory, makes this the occasion of a severe ar
raignment of Gladstone, whose character
and career it disparagingly compares with
that of the deoi-ased statesman.

HERRESHOFF'S SEA TERROR.
A Torpedo Boat Tbat I Elected to Make
S3 Knot an Hour.
BRISTOL, K. 1., March W. The work on
the new torpedo boat for the navy is fast
nearing completion, ami the Herresholts ex
pect to have it ready for trial during the
coming May I's hull is all in place, and the
turtle-back shaped deck is finished except
the fitting of a few more steel pi a tea The
government demands that this vessel shall
make twenty knot an hour on tbe official
trial. At tne same time the contract was
signed the Herreshotf estimated the boat's
speed for the trial ran at twenty-three knots
an hour. KavaJ officers eonfldoutly believe
that this new torpedo boat will prove
great a wonder aa did the Vesuvius.
The boat is 137 feet in length, bas a beam
of 14 feet and 6 inches, and a d. pth of bold
of S feet Its draught will be 3 feet and
inches. As it will lie in the water it will
present only S feet of free-board along it
whole hull, cava at the forward part, where
tne whale-back deck will nave a risa of some
ft feet from the water's edgi The chanoes
are that the long, loir, craft will go right
through the teas like a awordXLh, without
waiting to mount the waves. Sbe is to
carry a secondary battery of two 6-pounder
rapid-firing guns, presumably to be mountsd
somewhere on ner turtle-back. . , -
