; - Washington, March IS. Either the
members of the senate committee quoted
in, these dispatches yesterday, or the per-
, sous who repo-ted what they said, seem to
. have been talking at random, for the com
mittee not only didn't wait for the Repub
licans to complete their work on the stand
ink committees before giving out the assign-
.lent, but when given out they proved
to be practically what had been published.
This would seem to show that the mem
bers of a senatorial committee pledged
particularly to secrecy are peculiarly liable
to gairulity provided that yesterday's re-
' port was correct.
Some Additional Chairmanships.
a lie list jitcu 111 iiirac uisabuues jcawi-
day was correct as far as it went, but there
was one omission that was significant the
committee on mines and mining. Stewart
f Hep-, was chairman of this committee un
fUer Republican rule, is as as well known
a radical free silver man and was permit
ted to retrn the chairmanship by the Dem
ecratic steering committee. No other Re
publican was done such n honor. There
are one or two other chairmanships that
- may be noted as follows: George, agticul
ture; Turpie.census; coast defense, Gordon;
national banks, Mitchell of Wisconsin.
Discussing the Klective Officers.
There was a prevailing sentiment in the
canons committee in favor of a speedy re
organization of the clerical and executive
force of the senate and the sentiment took
tangible !h,.pe ininicuiatcly after the ad-
journmt'UWof the caucus, when the com
mittee snet in Ransom's room for the
purpose of considering the subject.
The Geographical Division.
The south gets thirty-one of the chair
manships, the north and west thirteen and
the Populist senators four. " The Repub
lican committee which is arranging the
minority representation on the committees
was at work again yesterday and its report
will be ready for presentation to the Re
publican caucus. Kleven chairmanships
of committees of minor importance will be
given to Republican senators. The Repub
licans decline to give out anything. It is
said that there has been quite a pressure
. brought to bear upon the committee to re
move Stewart from the Republican repre
sentation on the committee on appropria
tions and it is not unlikely that this will
be done in view of the fact that he has
been kept by the Democrats as chairman
of the committee on mines and mining.
the naval representative. M'be cabinet
also agreed upon the instructions to be
sent to Minister Stevens and these will be
forwarded by the first steamer leaving San
Francisco for Honolulu.

SPECIAL COMMISSION FOR HAWAII.
.That Poller Definitely Decided Upon by
;:' yWjiaHfit6TOK, March 15. The policy of
' sending a special commission to Hawaii for
the purpose of ascertaining the sentiment
of the people there upon the questiou of
annexation with the United States was
definitely decided upon at the cabinet
meeting yesterday. Practically, the entire
session was devoted to the consideration of
this matter, and Cleveland and his advisers
discussed the situation very fully. It is
understood, however, that the commission
will consist of three members, a civilian
and a representative of both the army and
? avyV : , ' . - .

Consequently the Civil Service Commis
sion Has to Stop Work.
Washington, March 15. The civil ser
vice commission yesterday took the neces
sary action to concel all examinations
scheduled to be held between March 23,
1893, and June 30, 1393, in the states of
Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Xew
York, Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Xew
Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho and
Wyoming.also the examinations scheduled
for Pittsburg, Pa.. Garden, City, Kan.;
Grand Junction, Colo., and Salt Lake City,
Utah. In explanation of this action Com
missioner Roosevelt said that the cancel
lation of these dates was made necessary
by the failure of congress at its last session
to appropriate suftioent money to pay the
travelling expenses of the examiners.
Congress Was Fully Informed.
When the schedules were prepared the
commission had barely enough funds
available to do its work. Subsequently,
by order ot the president, all free delivery
postoflices were included within the classi
fied service. This additional work neces
sitated considerable expenditure, and when
a deficiency became apparent the commis
sion asked congress for 1,000 to cover the
time until next year's appropriation be
came available, explaining that the work
of the commission could not be continued
without it. The deficiency appropriation
was not made, however, and the commis
sion now finds itself unable to hold the ex
aminations already provided for and leav
ing no alternative but to cancel them.
Precious Columbian Documents.
Washington-, March 15. The depart
ment of state has received from the United
States legation at Madrid a list of the or
iginal Columbus manuscripts which are

decendant of Columbus, for exhibition at
the World's fair. Some of the most in
teresting and precious historical cocuments
in the world are in the collection. The or
iginal contract made with Columbus with
the sovereigns of Spain is among them.
All of the documents are either written by
Columbus or Ferdinand and Isabella.
- The Free Gold Increasing.
Washington, March 15. The aggregate
of free gold now in the treasury is a little
more than $5,000,000. Several offers were
yesterday received from western points ag
gregating 300,000. Secretary Carlisle is
accepting these offers as fast as he can sup
ply the neccessary notes for them. The
most advantageous offers are now accepted
McAdoo to Assist Herbert. .
WAsnrNGTON, March 15. Speculation
concerning the assistant secretaryship of
the navy is practically set at rest by the
statement that the apointment has been
definitely settled upon. In a high official
who stands close to the president the state
ment that ex-Congressman McAdoo has
been selected finds its source.

been so high before for so long a time.
The water is slowly subsiding now and it
is expected will go down rapidly. The
Grand Rapids and Indiana railroad bridge
abutments were weakened by the torrent
yesterday and had to be strengthened with

sand bags- was laid along the top of the
bank to prevent serious damage.
The Town in Total Darkness.
The streets of the city were in total dark

Chartier; Etienne Char tier; Rose Chartier,
10 years old, and Lillian Chartier, 13 years
old. Stephen Chartier was rescued with a
broken leg and internal injuries. The heat
from the factory was so intense that the
firemen could not work on the ruin, which
was saved, however, from burning, and
the imprisoned may be rescued alive, bnt
it is doubtful.

its place, and, undoubtedly, will as
