- Washington, March 14. The week open
ed more busily for President Cleveland.
When he entered his office yesterday morn
ing he found crowds of senators and mem
bers awaiting him with their friends. To
A party of Missourians. composed of repre
sentatives Dockery, Morgan, Burns, Cobb
and DeArmond, who had come especially
to ascertain whether it was true that none
of their editorial constituents could hope
for appointment, Cleveland stated that
there was a misconception on this point.
Xewpaper meu would not be barred from
appointment to office and their applications
would be considered on precisely the same
footing as those of any other of the C5.000,
ft!0 of citizens. The impression that editors
and journalists generally were to. be
bnrred, .Cleveland said, arose from a mis
construction which he could not explain.
Dockery Susgests an Explanation.
Representative Dockery thought that
the mistake rnme from from a wrong in
terpretation of a remark of Postmaster
(ieneral lSissell, who, a few days ago, said
that in appointing postmasters he would
want to have it understood that whether
they were merchants or editors they would
Lave to be prepared to give their whole
time to tha service of the government and
could rot f.'trm out the business of the of
fice to incompett-nt clerks and others.
Sena'or Hill's Colleague Talks.
One or" the first of the president's callers
wiu fs'intor llarphv, of New York. His,
attention was called to the surprisingly
small number of applicants for office who
have yet made their appearance from Xew
York, the largest state of the Union.
"That shows the power of organization,"
replied Murphy. "Xew York will be heard
from at the proper time. Instead of hav
ing every Tom, Dick and Harry running
here to Washington and bothering the life
out of the president, the leaders of the
party in Xew York will decide upon the
men whom they desire to have appointed
to positions in the federal employ, and
whose appointment they think will benefit
the party most. These names being de
cided upon the men will come on to Wash
ington, present their papers and will, if
necessary, be introduced to the president."

ex-Commissioner of Internal Revenue Mil
ler, also of West Virginia, will be reap
pointed to his old position, in which case
that state will hardly be likely to get any
other big bureau appointments in the
Washington departments. Messrs. War
tier and Thayer, of Detroit, Mich., saw the
president in the interest of Levi T. Griffin,
of their city, whom they want to succeed
Justice Howell S. Jackson as circuit judge.
There was a noticable falling off in the
number of visitors who saw the president
but the crowd was still of fair size.
At 1 o'clock Cleveland held a public recep
tion in the east room. Several hundred
We're a-Comlng Father Biaaell.
There was a notable decrease in the num
ber of visitors at the postofnee. Post
master General Btssell, however, received
a number of visitors yesterday, but his in
variable response to appeals, however, ur
gent, for action on particular cases, was as
it had been during the last week that all
applications must take their usual course.
It expected that Maxwell, who has been
nominated for the position of fourth assist
ant postmaster general, will arrive here
next Thursday and that he will at once
take up the matter of postoffice appoint
ments. These applications are now com
ing in at the rate of a thousand a day and ;
it is probable that in a short time this .;
number will be increased to 1,500 per
A Mutually Agreeable Arrangement.
Senator Faulkner's name was yesterday
presented to the president as a candidate
tar appointment to the chief justiceship of
the new court of appeals for the District of
Columbia, recently established by act of
congress. Representative William L. Wil
son, of West Virginia, was the one who
announced Faulkner's candidacy. Faulk
ner is very anxious to leave the senate and
become a judge in an appellate court. If
his ambition is gratified it is already ar
ranged, so it is said, that he shall be suc
ceeded in the senate by Wilson.
KIAULANI VISITS THE WHITE HOUSE.
An Entirely Unofficial Call Mada On the
President and His Wife.
Washington, March 14. The Princess
KaiuUni has met her "great and good
friend." Hawaii and the United States
have shaken hands. The interesting event
took place at the White House at about
5:30 yesterday afternoon. At that hour
the princess, accompanied by Mr. and
Mrs. Da vies, Mia Davies, and the lady
companion to the princess. Miss Whatloff,
walked over from the Arlington and pre
sented themselves in a very democratic
fashion at the door of the executive man
sion. They were not unexpected and the
distinguished party was at once ushered
into toe blue room, where they found Mrs.
Cleveland awaiting them. They were soon
joined by the president, and a half hour
wo passed in a pleasant interchange of
Made Friends with Mrs. Cleveland.
It was a purely unofficial affair and not
a word was uttered on any subject even
remotely touching the present or future
;tatns of-ihe Sandwich Islands. This fact,
however, did not seem to interfere with
Princess Kaiulani's flow of spirits. She
and Mrs. Cleveland became very good I
rkiius daring 'be short titue tbev were
togetner, sua last, evening sne expressed
herself as having been charmed with the
president's wife. Mrs. Cleveland was
much interested in hearing the princess
tell of her impressions and experiences in
the United States.
The Commission to Visit Hawaii.
Gossip as to the persounel of the commis
sion that will probably be appointed to
visit the Hawaiian islands includes the
names of Judge Martin V. Montgomery,
of Michigan, late of the District of Co
lumbia supreme bench; General tfcholield.
Admiral Brown and Captain H. Lt.
Howison. General Schofield was a mem
ber of the commission that visited Hawaii
many years ago and Admiral Brown's last
cruise was to that country. Captain
Howison is now at the Mare Island navy
yard. He is said to be peculiarly fitted for
THE NEW SENATE COMMITTEES.
Rotable Makeup of That on Finance
Populists Provided For.
Washington, March 14. So far as the
Democrats and Populists are concerned the
senate committees are now completely re
organized. The fact that the Democratic
steering committee assigned places to the
Populists would seem to indicate that
there was no inclination to ignore the lat
ter, in spite of the fact that they were not
invited into the caucus. The Republicans
will now apportion themselves among the
committees and select chairmen for the
few which are generally conceded to the
minority party, and then the job will be
A Noticeable Assignment.
Probable the must noticeable assign
ments on the list are those made to the
finance committee, and unless all signs fail
there will be no harmony between that
committee and the administration First
comes Voorhees, chairman; then McPher
son (anti-silver man); but he is swamped
immediately by the names of Harris,
Vance, Vest and Jones all silver men
There may have been a "re-alignment"
the change of rulers March 4, but if thers
hasn't been there is no reason in the records
of the members of this committee why
Cleveland shouldu't have a free silver bill
to consider as soon as congress reachesthat

Not an Official List.
The chairmanships given above are not
official; they are what is published by the
papers. The senate committee did not
complete its work until late yesterday af
ternoon, and every member was pledged
from the beginning not to divulge any
thing that was done until the report was
made to the senate and the Republicans
had filled the places left for them. The
members of the committee say that all
statements touching the assignments must
necessarily be speculative and. as is ap
parent from the list published, very largely
Colnmbus Caravels at St. Thomas.
Washington, March 14. A cablegram
was received at the navy department,
yesterday announcing the arrival of the

Eight Hours for Letter Carriers.
Washington. March. 14. The United

Session of the Srnate.
Washington, March 14. The senate yes

adopted many years ago declaring the
right of the senate at extra sessions to go
into anything it chose, nd favored letting
that decision stand witLout further action,
but the subject was not talked out at ad
journment There were no nominations
Too Much Talk In the Treasury.
Washington, March 14. Secretary Car
lisle has given orders that no information
concerning financial affairs shall be given
out at the treasury except through him.
His action was caused by freedom with
which the oflicials of the department hae
been discussing the bond issue question
and other financial matters.

Washington. March 14 The Alabama

Employment Agent In the Detective
Role Situation at Chicago.
Toledo, March 14. It is apparent that
the bot torn has suddenly fallen out of the
Ann Arbor strike and that the difficulty
will be satisfactorily adjusted within the
next twenty-four hours. Chief Arthur
arrived here early yesterday morning and
with his assistant, Youngson, and Chief
Sargent was in conference all day with the
strikers and Railroad Commissioner Kirk
by. If a settlement is reached, which seems
now most probable, it will be largely due
to theefforts of the latter gentleman.
Interviewed the Parties.
After learning what concessions the
brotherhood was willing to mae to the
Ann Arbor Mr. Kirkby consulted J. M.
Ashley, the president of the road, and
after a lengthy interview he gave out that
the men will return to work today, not
stating, however, on what terms the set
tlement would be made.
Federal Law Had an Effect.
The Ann Arbor brought in some freight
yesterday for the Bake Shore which was
received as usual. The sudden retrogres
sion of the brotherhood is attributed to
the order issued by the federal court at
Cleveland on Saturday, obliging all rail
roads and employes thereof to receive and
convey freight from the Ann Arbor.
GOMPERS PLAYS THE DETECTIVE.
He Visits an Employment Agency In That
New York, March 14. Notwithstand
ing the reports from Chicago that the
switchmen there will not strike it is a fact
that there are several agencies open in this
city for the purpose of obtaining railway
men to go oat west. One of these is pre
sided over by Charles Dodge at 102 Fulton
street, and into this office Samuel Gompers
went yesterday in the role of a detective.
Labor leaders have become alarmed by
Dodge's movements. He is extremely un
communicalive, and if Gompers hoped to
get any information from him he must
Jiave been dJs,ipp;iuteJ.
Watching III ;tiirie Closely.
As Gompers was ushered into Dodge's
office Dode greeted him pleasantly and
asked him to state his business. Gompers
replied that he was acquainted with sev
eral switchmen who would like to get em
ployment. "Very well," said Dodge, "send
them to me and I will talk with them."
Do dge assured Gompers that the men he
employed would receive better pay for
their work than they could get in New
York. The switchmen are carefully watch
ing the movements of Dodge, and all other
railroad employing agents.
Had to Make the Tapeworm Drunk.
GKEENSBUKG, Pa., March 14. J. B.
Weaver, of Jeanette, has discovered a
rather unusual excuse for the drink habit.
He has been drinking heavily of late, con
trary to bis usual custom and regardless
of the protestations of his friends. The
other day Dr. Ringler removed from
Weaver's stomach a tapeworm over forty
feet long. Mr. Weavor says that only wheu
he drank enough liquor to make the worm
drunk could he have any rest.
"Ell Perkins" in a Scrap.
St. Louis, March 14. Melville D. Lan
don, better known as "Eli Perkins," was
one of the passengers on a train leaving
Chicago Sunday morning en route to this
city. Shortly after leaving Chicago Mr.
Landon began a heated argument with
the porter of the Pullman car in regard
to the ventilation of the car. The porter
resented the remarks of Mr. Landon and
iu the fight which followed the noted lec
turer was badly bruised and disfigured.
