WASHINGTON', March 23. The president ;
sent in another bach of nominal ions to the
senate yesterday. They were received with
mingled feelings by the represeutatives.but
senators who did not get their men chosen '
talked of opposing confirmation. The
nominations showed that the president is
not K'ns to treat the congressman as en
titled to dispose of the places, and that
while their recommendations will have
weight he will appoint other men than'1
thosa the congressmen recommend if
he sees fit. The important places filled
were as follows: John .S. Seymour of
Connecticut, commissioner of pateptsi?
Silas; W. h-iniorenux, of Wisconsin, com- '
missiouer of the neneral land office; Will
iam II. Sims, of Mississippi, Kit assistant
secretary of the interior; Kilwnrd A.
Bowers, of Washington, assUtanil commis
sioner of the general land office; Justice
Horace II. I.urton, of Tennessee, Unit. 1
States circuit jnde for the Sixth judicial
circuit; Max Judd, of Missouri, consul
general of the United States at Vienna.
May lie Trouble About Jutlil.
Juilge Linton, who lias succeeded Jus
tice Jackson on the circuit court Iwneh, is '
about 45 years old and has been a chancel- '
lor and is now chief justice of the state. ;
The Hebrew race and the chess players ire
both honored in the selection of Max Judd,
for Judd was the champion amateur chess
player of the country until the brilliant
Showalter, of Kentucky, wrested the title
from him not long ago. He was about
to retire. He is an Austrian by birth and
came to this country when very young. As
a general thing European governments do
not approve of their former citizens acting
in a diplomatic capacity for their adopted
country in the capital of their native land;
and Judd may be non persona grata,being
a Jew. It will be remembered that Kei
ley was rejected some years ago because
bis wife was - Jewess.
Vilas Cat Him a Place.
John S. Seymour is a good Connecticut '
lawyer, and state insurance commissioner. !
Silas Lamoreaux, the new land commis-
sioner, is a close friend of Senator Vilas to !
whom he owes his appointment. Vilas J
recommendation went a great way, as he
hag been a Cleveland man steadily. Will- t
iam H. Sims has been lieutant governor of
his state, lost a limb in the Confederate
service and stands well in Mississippi, 1
legally and politically.

Advice (rum a Negro Kepreseutative.
Representative Murray from the shoe
district in Soath Carolina, who will be the
only negro in the next congress, called at
the White House. He told the president
that he now had an opportunity to per
form an act of patriotism whose far reach
ing influence and effect would stand next
the great emancipation proclamation,
should he utilize ocension to force upon
the colored pet.ple the conviction that the j
change of administration would not mean

and who was said to have brought a barrel

Mr. ISurgar.l continued his story as fol- i
lows: "To tell the (Jod's truth, I made up
my mind to this effect: Yon are trying to i
rob Watson so I'll turn in and rob you. j
That's what I thought. So I told this man :
that for the fT.SOi) I and two more whom I i
named would stay away and not vote at
all. I informed him that I wanted $.",00
for myself and would divide the $2,500 be
tween myself and associates. He did not
care what division we made and asked
who should hold the money. Now. of
course, I intended to stay inside and vote
for Martin right through; so did the other
' Just So, llrother llurirard.
' "All that we aimed at was to get the
f 7,500 in our pockets and then let the other j
1 crowd whistle, I told him he must give
the cash to me, but he said some one must
bo agreed upon to hold it." He then nar
rated how he fixed matters with the stake
holder to bolt when he got the stakes, but
says the other side declined to entrust him
with the money, having apparently "sized
him up" about right. Just before the vote
this occurred, Burgard telling the briber
that he and two others would be absent at
the vote, fcOf course," adds Burgard, "we
' would have stayed and voted for Martin."
Must Have the Good First.
, But the briber was not a fool. JJe
seemed to know his men to a degree. He
smiled blandly, but remarked: "Xo; the
' money is in my pocket, and if you and
j your partners will walk over to the hotel
right now before they vote you can have
, it," And after all Burgard didn't get any
; of Watson's money.

They asked about the truth of the fre
quently reiterated assertion that congres

in the selection of postmasters. Bissell
denied having made such a statement.
Bland then supposed a case where there
were six applicants for a postoffice, recom
mended by a nnmber of reputable citizens
of the town. Would the place, he asked,
go to the man having the endorsement of
the congressman from the district?
Not Answering Hypothetical Queries.
The postmaster general refused to an
swer a hypothetical question and said he i
would not decide until an actual case of
fered. At the same time, he added, that
he was in readiness to carry out the will of
the people and their voice when clearly ex
pressed as to the candidate they wished
should and wouli have great veight. The
postmaster general also denied the printed
reports that no women and no newspaper
men would be appointed postmasters,
which it was hardly necessary for him to
deny in view of the fact that several news
paper men hare already been nominated
of Indiana, to be marshal of the
States for the district of Indiana.
