Mr. Krown Was u Hustler. !
It yeems that a man in Tennessee is not
the first postmaster appointed, a statement
to that effect having been printed a few
days ago. The first postmaster's name was
sent tn yesterday. He is Robert 11 Brown,
. it acainst anv
of Meadville, l a., and is said to be a bus- : will not sustain it
tier. The Republican incumbent of the
office, appointed almost four years ago by
Harrison, was removed, and about three
weeks before his term was vut Harrison
sent the name of W. S. Rose to the senate
for the place. Brown heard of this and
came down to Washington post haste
armed with letters of introduction to Dem
ocratic senators. He succeeded in having
the nomination held up until the Republi
can administration went out of power, and
then used his influence to secure his own

The other political nominations were:

timent of the people, regarding which
some doubts are entertained by the admin
istration. lilnnnt a Conservative.
Blount has occupied a conservative posi
tion on the annexation of Hawaii ever
since it was first broached by a secret com
mission from the island last wiater. He is
credited with having a suspicion that the
United States officials might have encour
aged the revolution and thereby put them
selves in a position to be accused of hav
ing a part iu the establishment of the gov
ernment with which they were now asked
to treat. Blount, it is further said, will
investigate the questions as to how the
overthrow of Lilioukalani's government
, was accomplished; whether or not the pro
visional government really represents the
popular sentiment of the islands.
Only Against Foreign Aggression.
It is further asserted that Blount will in
form the provisional government that the
United States will not aid in maintaining
but foreign aggression. It
against any other form
of government the people of the island
may see fit to attempt to establish.
A Republican "Chiel" to Take Notes.
Representative Hermann during the
summer proposes to visit Hawaii and per
sonally investigate the condition of affairs
on the islands. Hermann says that he pro
poses to do this because the people of the
Pacific slope are very anxious for the an
nexation of the Sandwich islands, and be
cause he thinks it will be advisable to have
some one on the Republican side of the
house to look into the facts.
THRONGS AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
Episcopal Ministers Speak a Word for Ah
Kin O facial Goaaip.
Washington, March J6. From early
yesterday morning until 1 o'clock in the
afternoon Cleveland was kept busy receiv
ing official visitors and then went into the
east room to shake hands with a lare
crowd of people. Among his callers were
a delegation of Episcopal ministers consist
ing of Bishops Paret, of Maryland; Potter,
of New Tork; Whltaker, of Pennsylvania,
and Hare, of South Dakota. They saw
President Cleveland and Secretary Gresham
in the library of the White House and ex
plained that their mission was in reference
to the Chinese exclusion law. The law, they
said, was extremely harsh and worked in
jury to American interests in China. They
hoped the president would secure some
modificniion of the cct, but had no definite
ideas to advance. Cleveland told the dele
gation that he was to a great extent power
less in the matter because he was bound to
carry out the law, but he promised to do
what he could.
Waylaid SI Ira in the Hall. ,
When the president passed into the hall
after his conference with the bishops, on
his way to his office, he was waylaid by
several congressmen, and stood for quite a
time in the hallway talking to them.
Among these were Senator Roach.of North
Dakota, who came with Judge Benton, of
his state, an applicant for the commission
ership of the general land office. Major
Daniel M. Ransdell, marshal for the Dis
trict of Columbia, and one of General
Harrison's most intimate friends, had a
pleasant chat with the president in which
D tendered his resignation informally.

Reception to the Vice President.
Washington, March 16. The reception
last evening to Vice President Stevenson
a t the residence of Senator McPherson was
attended by a larg- representation of prom
inent peopl- It was somewhat of au innova
tion in the line of receptions, the guests
being gentlemen only. Among those who
accepted Invitations were Gresham, Car
lisle, Bisaell, Smith and Morton, of the
president's cabinet, members of the diplo
matic corps, nearly all the senators and
many of the members of the house of rep
resentatives still in the city and local offi
cials and business men.
Carlisle's Financial Policy.
Washington, March ltt. A financial
plan involving a very complete reorganiza
tion of the present system of the govern
ment is occupying the serious attention of
the secretary of the treasury. The fall de
tails have not as yet been announced, bnt
enough is known to warrant the state
ment that the secretary's plan, which he
will submit to congress next fall, includes
the repeal of the silver purchasing clause
of the Sherman law, the repeal of the state
bauk tax and the issue of state bank cur
rency under the supervision of the nation
Light Keepers and Life Savers Need to Be
Washington, March It Secretary Car
lisle defined his policy yesterday as to ap
pointments in the lighthouse and life
saving service in the following letter in re
ply to a request for the removal of two Re
publican lighthouse keepers in New York
harbor to make room for Democrats! "In
reply I beg leave to inform you that the
positions for which Mr. Green and Mr.
Burger apply are not vacant ana no cause
for the removal of the present incumbents
is known. The great number or light
keepers employed, and their isolated situa
tions, prevents anythiug like constant over
seeing of their work, and a faithful per
formance of their responsible duties, in
volving the saety of the vast amount of
property and toe number of lives entrusted
to their care, depends upon the good char
acter and competency of the keepers them
selves. No Removals Except for Caase.
'It has been and is the policy of the de
partment and of the lighthouse, estab
lishment to encourage and insure a high
standard among them by retaining them
in the service during competency and good
behavior, and by promoting and trans
ferring them to better stations and rewards
for good service. Light keepers are held
to a strict performance of duty, but unless
some incompetency or neglect on their
nart is shown they will not be disturbed in
their tenure of office. It has l een the cus
tom for many years to regard t he lighthouse
establishment as a non-partisan service.
It is my intention to continue that custom.
No light keeper will be disturbed by me iu
his official position merely because of his

Herbert Visits a Navy Yard.
New York, March 16. Secretary of the
Navy Herbert paid his first official visit to
the Brooklyn navy yard yesterday. A sa
lute of seventten guns was fired as the car
riage was driven towards the command
ant's office. The officials were introduced
to the new head of the navy and after a
turn of the yard the secretary declared
him-elf highly pleased with appearances.
