cupants of which positions are doubtless
merchants of the country who are paid by
fees, and these fees seem to be very small,
inasmuch as only two make any returns at
all to the department of fees collected, and
those returns are under $.23 a year. Prob
ably many of them are native Peruvians,
though the names of some of them indi
cate the contrary. Whether the outrage
complained of occurred at one of the small
agencies or at Callao, no one at the depart
ment can determine from the telegram.
Not Uncommon in South America.
But inasmuch as it comes from Lima the
impression prevails that the scene of the
outrage was one of the interior points.
This impression is further strengthened by
the knowledge in the department that in
many cases where the natives assault the
sub-consulate the trouble is due not to any
antagonism to the country represented but
to prejudice and ill feeling against the
representative personally. This is not an un
common occurrence in South America, or
in other parts of the world, where the acts
of a mercantile consular agent are resented
by the people, who would respect the acts j
of a citizen of the United States duly ap- j

Gorman expressed regret that the origi
nal rule of permanency in the offices of
the senate had ever lieen iuterferred with.
He had seen that rule in operation and
knew how just and right it was. He had
seen the time when a subordinate officer of
the senate could not be removed by the
secretary or scrgeant-at-arms without
charges and without an opportunity to
make his defence before the vice president.
He regretted that the rule had been
abandoned. He closed with high praise
for the efficiency of the men who will go

adhere to his plan of selecting territorial
officers from the local residents unless
there were very cogent reasons to force him

Judge Lochren Was the Man.:
The long agony as to who would succeed
General Kaum as pension commissioner
was relieved yesterday by the appointment
of Judge William Lochren, of Minnesota,
to that position. Other nominations were:
Hannis Taylor, of Alabama, minister to
Spain. Postmasters Frank LBills,Urbana,
I1L; Thomas B. Powell, Vienna, Ills.;
Clarence M. Hawkins, Marion, Ind.: Royal
E. Purcell, Vincennes, Ind. Lochren's
name was received with general satisfac
tion. He is a jurist of the first order and
a veteran with a distinguished record. He
was one of the first to enlist and aband
oned a lucrative practice to do so.
His Gallantry at Gettysburg.
His services during the war culminated
at Gettsburg, where his regiment made the
famous charge that checked Pickett's on
slaught. Of the S00 men who made the
charge only forty came out whole, and
young Lochren, who started on the rush as
a first lieutenant of Company E, came out
in command of the regiment, every officer
above his grade having been killed or
wounded. When the war was over Will
iam Lochren returned to Minnesota and
resumed the practice of law.
Confirmed by the Senate.

Summary of Senate Proceedings.
Washington, April 7. Peffer made an
argument in the senate yesterday in oppo
sition to the right of the three senators ap
pointed by the governors of the states cf
Montana, Washington, and Wyoming to
take their seats. Hoar commenced a
speech in supjxjrt of e resolution declaring
the proposed constitutional amendment for
the election of senators by the people of the
several states inexiedient. The Democratic
nominees for secretary, sergeant-at-arms,
and chaplain respectively W. Ii. Cox, of
North Carolim; 11. J. Bright, of Indiana,
and Rev. W. H. Milburn were elecUnl, to
take their places on the assembling ot the
next senate in special or regular session,

Overtime for Letter Carriers.
Washington, April 7. Today the post
master general issued an order directing
postmasters at free delivery offices to ad

extra pay for services in excess of eight
the new deputy Bi0n of the United States supreme court
! holding that extra pay must be given for
more than eight hours work performed m
any single day. It will take over (000,000
to pay all the claims up to date for over
time. The postmaster general expresses
the opinion that the matter of overtime is
an evil which should be abated.
Ordered to Observe Decoration Kay.
Washington, April 7. General Yoder,
commander-in-chief,' of the Veteran Union,
has issued an truer directing commanders
of the order to properly observe Decora
tion Day. Commands that cannot meet
on cemetery grounds to decorate graves
are recommended to meet in their respec
tive halls aud hold such services as will
properly commemorate the gallant dead.
Cannot Recall the Russian Treaty.
Washington, April 7. It is said at the
senate that there seems to be considerable
misapprehension about the Kussian treaty
of extradition and there is no reason to ex
pect it will not be ratified and promulgat
ed. To decline ratification now would cer
tainly be regarded as an affront by Russia
and is therefore altogether improbable.
