THE NAVY MINUS A SECRETARY.
Becrotary Whitney left tho city this
morning without signing n doilgnatlon
for Commodoro Walker to act during his ab
sence. Owing to this oversight tho nivy
is without any person in Washington au
thorized to act as Secretary. This has
scaicoly ever happonod boforo and no om
barrassment is llkoly to result.
THE YVYOMINO GOVERNORSHIP.
It is generally botlovcd among tho Tor-
I tortal citizens now hero that Govornor
Wniren of Wyoming, President Arthur's
last npnoln tec, will not bo disturbed, and
his competitor, Mr. Post, has glveu up all
hopo of securing a change. J. B. Adams of
Rawlins said last night that ou account of
n friction of local and public lutorcsts In
tho Terrllorles, ho bollovcd President
Cleveland had not found It practicable to
adhere c'osoly to tbo Territorial plunk In
tho platform, and that tho citizens of tho
States would still bo admitted.
THE GOVERNMENT rHINTEK.

nro renewing tbolr applications to tbo
President, and pretond to havo Information
that a change Is imminent. Hon. John
Ecbloy of Indiana and It. P. Yorkston of
Bt. Louis are again brought out by their
friends. The belief is qulto general, how
ever, that Mr. Hounds will not bo dls
tntbed, or if disturbed, that a Buffalo, X.
Y,, man will rccolvo tho appointment. It
is understood that tbo President Is reserv
ing tho oflleo of Government Printer for
Lis own city, which has thus far nolthcr
tttked nor received any recognition.
THE INDIAN LEASE SYSTEM.
Senators Dawes and Iugalls of tho San
atoria! Subcommittee appointed to investi
gate tbo leasing system which prevails in
Iho Indian Territory, will loavo this woek
for tho West to onter on tho performance
ol tholr duties. Their report Is directed to
conialn otthor a rtcoraiio idatlon of legisla
tion making the leasing system logltimato
or prohibiting It altogether. This subcom
mittee should not be confounded with tho
con. mission which President Clovoland Is au
thoilzcd to nnoolnt to visit tho Clicrokoes,
Creeks and Semlno'cs, and aicortaln their
lights and opinions respecting tho loasos.
Tbst commission will not bo appointed un
til tho first of July, when tho appropria
tion theiofor becomes available.
THE ARTILLERY PROM WASHINGTON.
When tbo Secoud Artillery leaves Wash
ington barracks and Fort Mollenry an
Juno 1 the euttro regiment will procoed to
Atlanta, Ga,, whero It will go Into a sum
mer encampment, to remain until tho last
of September, or, possibly, October. Tho
contemplated transfer has occasioned so
much unfavorahlo commoutthat n roporter
nsLcd Geperal Drum to day whether there
liany possibility of a revocation of theorder.
General Dium replied that It would not bo
possible to rovoko tho order, as such a
uquiso would bo prejudiihl todleclpilnoand
in violation of precedent. Tho details of
tlio transfer remain to bo executed by an
cider from General Hancock. Too reason
for making tho change at this timo Is that
tho appropriation for tho purposo would or
Iiiro ou July 1, aud the amount for next
jear Is not suluciont to permit tho transfer
to bo made.

THE REFORMERS TROTESTINO,
Tho appointments under tho Troasnry
Department during tho last few days havo
occasioned bitter protests from clvll-scrvlco
reformers. Tho discharges of tho chief
clerk of tho Bureau of Statistics, tho chiefs
of division in tho Sixth Auditor s oQlco and
a special agent on duty at Bshtmoro, havo
allied to protests. In tbo case of tbo chief
clerk of tho Bureau of Statistics It Is alleged
thai the man displaced was ono of tbo most
efficient and useful in tbo Department and
that it is Imnosslblo for a political appolntco
to successfully perform tho duties. It was
tho first dismissal of tho chief clerk of a
Treasury bureau on partisan grounds aud
causes much unoislncss. among olllclalsof
this class, who relied upon being; retained
if their records wero good, Tho discharges
of chiefs of division In tho Sixth Auditor's
ofllco to make room for political appoint
ments, occasion complaint for tho reason
that Treasury chiefs of division have never
been political appolnteos undor Republican
administration. Tho chiefs of division,
over seventy In number, havo nearly all
rlson from low grade clerkships, and are
menof years of oxperlrno. Not a faw o'
them aro Democrats. President Clovolanl
