Washington, March 21. It is expected
that -within the next few days the presi
dent will send to the senate the nomina
tion of a commissioner of pensions, and
any changes in policy as to pensions and
questions of reorganization will be de
ferred until General Ranm's successor has
had an opportunity to familiarize himself
with the duties and needs of the office. In
the meantime Secretary Smith will con
tinue to sign all pension certificates as they j patronage in
esented to him. The daily issue of , make itself i
tbe senate naa never in its mstory effected
such an organization at an executive ses
sion, and that to attempt it now would be
- to the detriment of the working force and
cause great injury to the public business.
There was not a dissenting voice to this
proposition and it was agreed that Sher-.
, man, chairman of the caucus, should wait
i upon Gorman, who holds a similar posi
tion in the Democratic caucus, and notify
! him that any attempt to reorganize the

Quite Harmonious in Secret Session.
In an executive sesrion lasting a little
more than half an hour yesterday after
noon the senate disposed of a great deal of
the work that had accumulated pending

confirmed except here and there a post
master, and the nominations of ex Sena
tors Eustis and Hampton, made yesterday,
were confirmed without the formality of a
reference to the appropriate committees.
When the reports of the various commit
tees were made all of them favorable
there was not a word of dissent and the
utmost harmony prevailed. ' The nomina
tions were confirmed in the ordinary way, j

"The secretaay will see no visitors on
Monday," is the Bign pinned on the door
leading into Secretary Carlisle's room. It
means exactly what it says, as a number
of visitors, including several senatars,
found out when they called to see Secretary
Carlisle. To be absolutely free, the secre
tary did not even sign the official mail.

Not a Tammany Selection.
Washington, March 21. It was noticed
among the nominations made yesterday
that one was that of a man who would not
receive the approval of Tammany. This
was John E. Kisley. He was a candidate
for the congressional nomination from on
of the New York City districts last fall
Washington. M::iv5i -11. President
Cleveland's edict that members of con

Washington, March 21. Various reso
lutions affecting clerks of committee.modi
fi cat ion of the rules, etc., were offered in
the senate yesterday aud referred. One re
solution for the reprint of the Indian ap
propriation bill led to a discussion in which
the errors committed in the enrollment of
appropriation hills at the last session were
exposed and commented upon. Cockrell
stated that three of the most important ap
propriation bills had to be enrolled with
out any comparison, at the risk ot forcing
an extra session of congress. After an exe
cutive session the senate adjourned.
The Bouse Too Economical.
Washington, March 21. During the
discussion in the senate yesterday of er
rors in enrollment of bills Allison "said
they occurred exclusively in the bills en
rolled in the house. Piatt, Republican,
inquired whether the enrolling force in the
house was not so small that inexperienced
people had to be called in to assist. Gor
man replied that that was absolutely true.
He added that one of the appropriation
bills had not reached the senate (enrolled)
until 1 o'clock on the 4th of March by
standard time, .or 12 o'clock by the senate
Close Call for Secretary Carlisle.
Washington,- March 21. It was only
by an inch that a vacancy in President
Cleveland's cabinet was averted yesterday.
Secretary Carlisle came as near to losing
his life as a man ever came without re
ceiving bodily hurt. He was crossing a
cable car track lost in thought when a
car swept down on him. He did not hear
the bell nor the shouts, but a passer-by
dragged him off the track just in time, the
grip car brushing his clothing as it passed-
