Soon Reciprocity Doomed.
Washington, April 6. There was a live
ly meeting lasting two hours and three
quarters last evening in the office of Post
master General Bissell between the two
factions of the South Coralina Democracy.
Senator Irby and Representatives Latimer,
Talbert, Shell and Strait were present
representing the Tillrnanites, and Senator
Butler and ex-Representatives Johnston
and Hemphill the Conservatives. The feel
ing ran high and some tart passages were
exchanged between them, of which the
climax came when, after Johnston had
ileniedsome of Irby's statements, the latter
responded that he was responsible for any
thing he might say at the conference. The
meeting started out by Senator Irby stat
ing that he had it on authority (which he
named) that Sdnator Butler came there
with a stick in his hand and a pistol in his
pocket. Butler denied this allegation ab
solutely. Didn't Get on Well Together.
Each side presented its case, the Tillman-;
itcs claiming that they represented the
Democratic party of South Carolina and
the Conservatives declaring the Tillrnan
ites were Alliance men and not Democrats.
Postmaster General Bissell had said that
he would hear Senator Irby. The latter
replied that he would wait on the senior
senator, to which Butler retorted that un
less Irby was running the meeting he would
submit to no dictation at his hands and
was tired of his insolence, and there were
equally sharp passages between Strait and
Butler. Postmaster General Bissell dur
ing the hearing laid down the policy of
himself. He said that the department
would not regard the recommendation of a
senator or representative as conclusive, but
merely presumptive in favor of the man
endorsed, no long as he was at the head of
the postofGce department.
That Eckels Nomination.
The nomination of Eckels to be comp
troller of the currency has not been re
ported to the senate, but is still in the
hands of a sub-committee of the commit
tee on finance. In view of the fact that
neither the comptroller of the currency
nor the gentleman selected as deputy
somptroller of the currency Tucker has
bad any previous experience in the man
agement of financial affairs the commit
tee is inclined to believe that the prevail
ing rumor as to Eckels' selection for this
position, being an inadvertence is well
Founded, and it is understood that the at
tention of the president will be brought
to this particular case by members of the
3omm:ttee through representations made
to the head of the treasury department.
ANOTHER MINISTER NOMINATED.
lainei S. Kwing, of Illinois, to Go to the
The men who were given public office
yesterday, so far as the president uonld do
it were: James S. Kwing, of Illinois,
minister to Belgium; Thomas T. Critten
3en, of Missouri, consul general at the
City of Mexico; Louis C. Hughes, of Ari
zona, governor of Arizona; William T.
Thornton, of New Mexico, governor of
New Mexico; William M. Maize, of Ohio,
surveyer of customs for the port of Col-
Ewing is. the law partner and cousin of
Vice President Stevenson; Crittenden is
?x-govemor of Missouri, and the man who
hunted Jesse James to his death.
Sarcasm Made 'Em Restless.
For a short time yesterday it was im
possible for newspaper men to get the us
ual list of appointments to fourth-class
postoffiees. The matter caused a good deal
sf comment at the department and it
leaked out that the cause of this policy of
jecrecy was the restiveness of the prasident
and the postmaster general - under the
numerous or sarcastic comments of para
graphers and headline editors on the news
papers on "The Working of Maxwell's
Suillotine, etc." It was therefore resolved
to cut off the source of information, but
later in the day Postmaster General Bissel
rescinded the order. The list showed about
134 fourth-class postmasters appointed.
The Next Feusion Commissioner.
It is reported as c i the authority of Sen
ator Palmer, charman of the senate pen
lions committee, that General Raum's
iuccessor had been selected and that the
lucky man would go to the senate within
forty-eight hours. . Further than this Sen
ator Palmer would not say, but he inti
mated that the appointee would be from
the north. From this hint it is believed
that there is a good foundation for the
report that Judge William Lochren, of
Minneapolis, has been selected. Addition
al importance is given the rumor by the
Fact that Judge Lochren called at the
White House yesterday morning.
Confirmed hy the Senate.
The senate has confirmed the following
nominations: William II. Seaman, of Wis
sonsin, to be United States district judge
for the eastern district of Wisconsin; Ezra
W. Miller, of South Dakota, to be attorney
of the United States for the district of
South Dakota: Felix A. Reeves, of Tennes
see, to be solicitor of the treasury; Herman
Stump, of Maryland, to be superintendent
REMINDED HIM OF A STORY
Palmer Raises a Laugh Among the Sol
emn Senators Tiring of the Session.'
Washington,' April 6. The noticeable
thing about the senate yesterday was the
large array of vacant seats, a considerable
number of the senators having gone home
and others finding the debate on the ques
tion on the power of governors to ap
point senators when the legislators fail to
elect too dreary to keep1 them in the cham
ber. Chandler spoke in favor of the ma
jority report recommending the seating of
the appointed senators and was replied to
bv Senator 1 aimer. Chandler had nlead-
ed tor a broad and liberal construction of
the constitute n, and having ridiculed the
minority's position as a technical and nar
row construction Palmer in reply said the
fathers of the constitution had adopted
what the senator called a narrow and illib
eral construction, but he (Chandler), their
wiser son, had found another method bet
ter than theirs.
Knew a Better Doctrine.
The senator's discovery reminded him of
a Calvin istic preacher, who, on a certain
occasion, said to his congregation: "My
brethren, there is a man going up and
down through the country preaching that
all men can be saved. Thank bod, we ..
teach better .than this." Laughter.
The senate is now awaiting notification
from the president that he no longer re
quires its presence before adjourning its
special session. There is no life in the de
bate and there is an understanding amount
ing to substantially the same thing as an
agreement that neither the question of the
power of the governors to appoint senators
nor the proposed Roach investigation will
be pushed to a vote at this session.
Proceedings in the Senate.
Washington, April 6. There were two
speeches made in the senate yesterday on
the question of the admission oil the sena
tors appointed by governors. Chandler
contended for a broad and liberal construc
tion of the clause of the constitutirn bear-
ing on the subject, while Palmer stood for I

'Will Repudiate Reciprocity.
Washington, April It is reported on
good authority that Secretary Greshani
has advised the president to revoke Presi
dent Harrison's action which prohibited
Venezuela and Hay Li sending in their
sugar and coffee free of duty. This action
by President Harrison was taken because
those nations refused to make any recipro
cal arrangements when the sugar duty
was removed. It is believed that the presi
dent will follow Gresham's advice and
that this act ion will prove the beginning
of the end cf ciprocity.
3I.rringe in Official Life.
Washington, April 6. Roy Jones, son
of Senator Jones, of Nevada, and Miss
Pauline Williamson, daughter of General
James A. Williamson, were married at St.
John's Episcopal church yesterday in the
presence of a large gathering of people well
known in Washington society. The young
couple will live on Senator Jones' 30,000
acre ranch in California, or which the
groom is manager.
Gives Bis Stepdad a Beap of Trouble.
Washington. April 6. Harry Martin, a
stepson of Senator Vance, of Xorth Caro
lina, attempted to commit suicide last
night because of a trouble with some girl.
He is the young man who figured in the
courts some time ago for attempting one
night to break into the White House dur
ing the Harrison administration when un
der the influence of liquor.
Martial Law for the Cboctaws.
Washington, April 6. Secretary Hoke
Smith has received a telegram from Indian
Agent Bennett in which he recommends
that the Choctaw nation be placed under
martial law. This he believes to be the
only way in which peace can be main
tained. Secretary Smith has as yet taken
Bo action on this recommendation.
Twenly-rive 1'ension Kinployes Dropped.
Washington, April 6. On the recom
mendation of the second assistant secre

The Martin Case Will Go Over.
Washington, April 6. Senator Vance,
chairman of the senate committee on
privileges and elections, stated yesterday
that nothing would be done this session in
J Martin, the senator from Kansas.
The Post says that it is understood that
the nomination of General E. S. Bragg, of
Wisconsin, to be minister to Brazil will be
sent to the senate this week. I
The impression among those who are
making it their business to find out, and
also who are his friends, is that Frank
Lawler will get the Chicago postoffice.
Secretary Carlisle has appointed Al Car
lisle, of Salem, O., inspector of furniture for
the treasury department, vice Henry L.
Swords, resigned. The place pays $3,000 a
year and traveling expenses. He is no rela
tive of the secretary.
PRESSURE ON PRESIDENT M'LEOD.
Miners and Dealers Don't Like the Idea
of His lietirement.
Philadelphia, April C. It is reported
in financial circles here that great pressure
is being brought to bear on President Mc
Leod to withdraw his resignation and con
tinue in control of the operating depart
ment of the Reading railway. Mr. Mc
Leod has, it is understood, taken the mat
ter under advisement, although he would
Would Be Bad for the Coal Trade.
It is believed McLeod's retirement from
the Heading railway will have a serious
effect upon the anthracite coal trade. His
policy, it is also said, had been such as to
increase the profits to both miners and
dealers, and these classes regard his re
tirement as-a signal for lack of cohesion
among all concerned in maintaining prices
at a uniform level.
