Itetrouctlve Provision of the Dlngley Bill to lie Stricken Ont or Radical ly Amended by the Sennte. WASHINGTON. April 21. Speaker Reed gave an interesting talk on the present pol icy of the House, and incidentally declared his views on labor organizations to-day in the course of one of the conferences which are of dally occurrence In the speaker's rcom. A delegation from the American Federation of Labor, headed by Samuel Gompers, the chief officer of the order, called to request action by tne speaker and the House on matters in which the Fed eration is interested. They presented a memorial asking the appointment of Rep resentative Gardner, of New Jersey, to the committtee on labor, and also suggested amendments to tho eight-hour laws. The specchmaklng on the part of the Federa tion was done by Mr. Gompers and P. J. McGuire. Mr. Gompers said that there was great distress throughout the country and many unemployed, and expressed a hope that Congress would do all In its power to alleviate the distress. lie remarked that there had not been as much legislation In the Interest of labor by the last Congress as the laboring men wished. They did not want to be put in the light of making de mands on Congress; they merely desired to express their wishes. They regretted that the eight-hour law was not more strictly enforced in its application to public works. They d?sired it to be understood, however, that they were antagonistic to revolution ary leaders, and believed In lawful and or derly agitation and In the improvement of existing conditions by legislation, ! Speaker Reed, in reply, expressed appre ciation o the moderate and reasonable at titude of the laboring men. The labor or ganization, he said, was a necessary con comitant of the factory system. While in the old days laborers had been individually independent, the growth of the factory sys tem had forced them to organize for the preservation of their rights and interests. He believed that results beneficial to hu manity were coming from those organiza tions. While reforms of the class they spoke of moved siowly, they did move. Public sentiment was 'now much more tol erant of the eight-hour law than it had been ten years ago. He could remember when every laboring man was expected to work twelve hours. Public sentiment had much to do with the enforcement of the eight-noun law. and he had no doubt that. undVr its impulse, conditions were contin ually Improving. Referring to concessional action, the speaker said that only one thing could be dono at a time, and he was certain all would agree that the first thing to be done by Congress now was to arrive at a decision on the pending tariff hill one way or an other. He hoped the delegation would use its influence to mold public sentiment to ask for as speedy action on the tariff bill as could be obtained. It was not thought best for the House to deal with other matters until that question was out of the way, because any action taken here might com plicato and delay action on the tariff, which all must concfde to be necessary. The tar iff question once disposed of. there would be opportunity for consideration of the other interests asking legislation.' As to the special request for the appointment of Mr. (iardner, the speaker said that would be taken under consideration, as all re quests for commltteo assignments weep. In response to the complaint that thv last Congress had not done enough for labor, Mr. Reed said that remonstrances had been received by him complaining that Con gress had been too much under the dom ination of the Federation of lalor. This fact would illustrate that there were con flicting ideas in the country. In conclusion, Mr. Heed expressed approval of the policy adopted by the Federation. A continual and constant pressure within the law was much more effective in securing reforms than violent. methods, he said. Violence al ways brought a reaction, and reforms sought were likely to be lost in the turmoil of tho outbreak. AO ItETROACTlVK IJLTIKS. Senate Will Kill One Feature of the Tariff Itlll Democratic Policy. WASHINGTON. April 21 .-The Republican members of the finance committee of the Senate have reached an agreement either to strike out the retroactive provision of the Dlngley tariff bill or amend It so as to pavo the way to have It stricken out in conference, and have so notified the dem ocratic members of the committee. The Democrats have agreed, in view of this promise, not to press the Vest resolution on the subject of Secretary Gage's recent circular. The sentiment among the Re publican members is said to have been against the provision from the first, but they felt that to take decisive diverse action on it in tho face of Democratic opposition would place them in a light of acting under firo and taking a position because of the criticisms of the opposition. They therefore asked that the Democrats keep their hands off until the Republicans should have an opportunity to make their intentions known. The Democrats considered this protositlon as reasonable and agreed to refrain from pressing consideration of the Vest resolu tion until the result of the labors of the Republican members cculd be known. While not absolutely decided between the material modification of the provision and its com plete cancellation, the balance of opinion In the commltteo ls undcrstocxl to be quite on tho side of destroying it entirely. The Democratic senators generally believe this will be the result of the committee's delib erations and expect that when the bill is handed to them the clause will have dls apiHiared. There has been some discussion of the prohahlo programme of the Democratic members of tne finance commltteo with ref erence to tho tariff bill as a w'.iole. and It Is learml that while their plans are not definitely matured they intend to have rea sonable consideration of the oill in commit tee and lelieve that they will have the support of Senator Jones, of Nevada, on any fair proiosition they submit. The Democrats do not want an extended consid eration in committee, but may desire to of fir some amendments after they have seen the. bill, the adoption of which they consider they would be more likely to secure in tho commltteo than in the open Senate. It Is saM that in the Senate the Democratic plan Is not to delay the bill any longtr than ls necessary, but that every senator desiring to discuss It shall have the oppor tunity to do so and that such record-making votes as the Democrats think necessary shall be had. This policy the Democrats will pursue to the end. In this connection It may bo stated that the Democrats of the Senate do not approve of the iKlicy of Mr. Bailey and his fellow-Democrats of the House. Attention Is called to the fact that It was long ago said that the policy Speaker Reel and the Republicans of the House are pursuing would be followed In order to di rect attention to the delay of the tariff bill in tho Senate. If delay should ensufe by reason uf dtbate by Democratic senators it will Imj pointed out. Democratic senators say. that this delay is not indorsed by the majority of the Democrats of the House. Th Bailey Democrats will le Indorsing the Republicans In their criticisms of the Demo cratic senators. It is not known whether ot not the advice which the Democratic senatorial leaders are freely giving thr Democrats of the House will be taken, but !t Is known that the House. Democrats ha l. n advised that acquiescence In the Re publican tactics ls not good policy. The Democratic senators do not want criticisms v. hl-h may be directed at them to be indi rectly lrulorsd by the Democratic mem'oers oi' tho House. It Is learned to-day that In tho changes made in the tariff bill by the t'nate subcommittee the rates In the metal schedule have been made very close to t he present lav. and the same is uald of the cotton schedule. The chemical schedule lit understood to be about completeel. Many changes In it in the direction of reductions havo been made. Rnllnir That Barn Many Cltlnene. WASHINGTON, April 21. The fitlorney general has rendered an opinion to tne sec retary of the treasury in which he holds that under the Joint resolution of Congress suspending tho operation of certain parts of the immigration laws so as to admit for eigners to be employed in various capacities in connection with the Nashville, Tenn., exposition, the secretary has a right to lim it the number to be so admitted. The ejucs tlon was raised as to the admission of sev eral hundred Chinese who had arrived on the border and had applied for entrance. The director general of the exposition, in answer to Inquiries from the department, stated that 2A Chinese should be admitted under concessions granted and that number would be allowed to proceed, but no more. This will necessitate the return to China of over a hundred now at Tort Townsend, and probably many more Foon to arrive. The necessary instructions to this effect probably will be s'.nt to immigration and customs officials to-day. Xotcel Counterfeiter Captured. WASHINGTON. April 21. Chief Hazen. of the secret service, has received a tele gram stating that James Foley, who es caped from jail nt Jollet, 111., March 22 last, where he was awaiting trial on a charge of counterfeiting, had been arrested in New York on another charge of coun terfeiting, giving his name as John O'Keefe. It is learned at the secret service bureau that Foley's right name is John W. Mur ray and that his home Is In Cincinnati. The records of the secret service are said to show that Murray has been arrested nine different times for counterfeiting and has been convicted seven times. The aggregate of Ms terms of service in Jail since isr.2 is twelve years and six months. Ills special ty is said to be dimes and nickels. He probably will be returned to Illinois, where he can receive a longer sentence for coun terfeiting and jail breaking than he would likely receive in New York. Ilrlef Sennlon of the Ilnune.

SAN FRANCISCO. April 21. Tho barken tino City of Papel. just arrived from Tahiti, brings news confirming the report that Queen Namai. of the Raiatla islands, was captured by tho French and sent into exile with her husband and tho principal chiefs. Mrs. S. J. Hutchinson, of tho Holiness Church of Los Angetcs, returneil from tho deposed Queen's land on the City of Papel, having been refused permission to do mis sion work there, as her religion differed from that which is the established church on that Island. She was allowed to land at Nouka Hiva, but was prevented from attempting to convert the natives. The war, which resulted in Queen Namal's exile, was brought to a close by a severe bayonet charge of the" French against the natives, whose ammunition had become exhausted. The natives were crowded behind a breast work and nearly every one killed. The Queen afterwards surrendered. Resides those exiled with the Queen more than three hundred warriors were taken In u trans port to Christmas island. As no water could be found there the warriors were taken back to Nonka Hiva for further in structions. The officers in charge of tho prisoners were directed to take them to another island of the Marquesas group that M. Lichtlc h;ul leased frem the French government for the purpose of using It as a cattle range. As soon as the natives were put on the island they began to kill the cattle for food. When the City cf Papel left the islands Uchtle was trying to get the government to remove the natives and to pay him for the animals killed. BILLY VERNON MAY DIE. Condition of the Injured Pur?HUt la Critical Xlne ArreHtn. PHILADELPHIA, April 21.-Billy Ver non, the Haverstraw (N. Y.) lightweight, who collapsed in the fourteenth round of a bout with Leslie Pcarce, of Camden, N. J., at the Olympic Athletic Club, at Athens, Pa., last night, remains in a critical con dition at the Presbyterian Hospital, this city, and his death may occur at any mo ment. The physicians cannot say whether his condition is a consequence of injuries received in the tight or of natural causes. Tho only mark on his body ls u slight bruise over the heart, and there are con flicting statements as to whether or not Vernon was felled by a blow from his an tagonist. Pearce and nine other partici pants in the alfalr have been arrested, and the former was committed to prison in Meelia to-night on a formal charge of as rauit and battery. Hy instruction from District Attorney Shaffer, of Delaware county, who stated that Vernon Is likely to die, the justice who held Pearce refused bail.

April 21. John L. Sullivan ls very much disturbed by the manner Jn which Champion Fitzslmmons disposed of his challenge. The big fellow, who is play ing In Louisville, Ky., has written a letter to his backer and manager, Frank V. Dunn, of this city, in which he rays: "My challenge to Fitzslmmons is meant and goes on record. It is no advertising scheme on my part, but a purely business proposi tion. The money posted proves faithful ness on my part, and is evidence cf confi dence on my part that I can beat him to a de-ad certainty. I want the public to know that I never laid down or quit In my life, which Is more than Fitzslmmons can say. All his talk to the public about his not pay ing any uitention to me etoes not go. 1 will make him pay some attention to me. and Julian as well.

Agreement Reached Vherehy Votinjr on the Unnkruptey Rill "Will HckI" at II o'clock Thin Afternoon. WASHINGTON. April 21. Senator Ma- son, cf Illinois, made his maiden speech in the Senate to-day, and signalized It by some breezy criticism on the rules of the Senate. It was such a variation from the prosy debate of recent daya that the sen ator was accorded close attention, and twice received the hearty applause of the crowded galleries. The speech was in sup port of a resolution introduced by the Illi nois senator directing the committee on rules to report a rule by which debate could be closed and the previous question or dered. In this connection Mr. Mason sar castically referred to the inaction of tho Senate on all great questions before it; the long and" fruitless debate on Cuba; the de lay of tho arbitration treaty and the in ability to say whether our difficulties are to be settled by arbitration or by the methods of "Corbett and Fitzslmmons." It was time, he said, to send the Senate into dry dock end rid it of accumulated barnacles. Mr. Hoar, of Massachusetts, replied briefly, pointing out that the other branch of Con gress was more open to criticism than the Senate. He was in accord with Mr. Mason, however, on the need of new rules. A vote was taken on Mr. Gorman's motion to re fer the Mason resolution to the rules com mittee, which prevailed. A further discus sion of tho subject is promised, as Mr. Hoar has a pending resolution to discharge the committee on rules from further consider ing the reform of the rules. Most -of the day was given to the bankruptcy bill. The vote on the substitute and amendments will be taken at 3 p. m. to-morrow, it was agreed that a committee of fifteen senators should represent tho Senate atythe Grant memorial ceremonies. The maturing of the tariff bill was indi cated by the "oeluge of petitions relating to tariff rates presented to the Senate to day. Mr. Spooner sent a bundle containing several hundred, petitions tfrging a re-enactment of the McKinley rates lumber. Mr Mantle presented a telegraphic memorial from the Montana Stock Growers' Associa tion asking an amendment to the tariff bill so that adequate protection would bo given to the hide industry. Among the other pe titions was ono from leading commercial houses in San Francisco opposing the abrogation ot tho Hawaiian treaty oi reci procity. Mr. Morgan reported favorably from t"K committee on foreign relations an amenu" ment to the sundry civil bid proposing an appropriation of 50,0u0 to improve Pearl harbor, Hawaiian Islands. Mil, MASON'S SPEECH. Mr. Cullom's resolution, Introdmied yes terday, calling on the secretary of tho treasury for information relative to inter nal revenue taxes on distilled spirits, was agreed to. Thi cleared the way for the unexpected and very breezy speech from the new sen ator from Illinois, Mr. Mason. It occurred on the resolution of Mr. Mason introduced yesterday directing the committee on rules to report xi rule providing for tho closing of debate and for the previous question. He said he elesirtd to have tho resolution go to tne committee on rule, but lie gave notice that unless some 'report was forth coming at an eviny eiay he would move to have the committee discharged so that the resolution could be brought oelore the Sen ate. It was agreed on ad hands, proceeded the senator, in a vein ot sarcasm, that tho Senate was a great body. This was tho view particularly of those within the body and on the pay roll. 'But every one knew also that it was the only legislative body in existence Incapable of doing business. -Mr. Mason said he hoped he would be for given tor these rellections, tor he was still in the -kindergarten class." and he recog nlzwl that he was threshing over old straw. Hut he proposed to keep threshing over this old straw during his next six years in the Senate. , k At . , Mr. Mason referred to the approaching tariff, debate. The bill would be before the Senate soon. It remedied an act which promised a "tariff tor revenue," and gave a "tariff for deficiency." It was now pro posed to give protection to American in dustries and to the American laboring man. And yet the business interests were trem bling on the verge of "despondency and Democracy" because they knew the fate of the bill depended not on the majority, but on the minority. Every one knows, he de clared, that wnlle we profess to be a gov ernment by the people, when we reuch the highest body in the government, there is a rule of the minority. Mr. Mason glanced around the chamber and said he observed the smllo on the faces of some of his col leagues. Thev all liked power, and as soon us a man entered these Senate doors his energies were directed to retaining power in the old way. "I want to deliver a mes sage from the people .before this hope of power possesses me." exclaimed the sen ator, and the galleries gave response by hearty applause. Mr. Mason spoke of the paralysis of business in the Senate on all great ques tions. Here, at the close of the nineteenth century, the great question was presented whether international differences were to bo settled by arbitration of by the methods of Fitzslmmons and Corbett. The Senate had listened to speeches, but in this, as in all other ciuestions. there was no action. The senator from Alabama (.Morgan) had presented a re solution as to Cuba, involving the great Cuban question "handed, dowji to us by Grover II." Put where was that resolution? It was impossible to tear down the golden god of the Senate rules in order to act on Cuba. The senator asserted that there was a "majority of insurgents" in this bodv; a majority was ready to act. but was held back by the minority in control. It was time to do away. with these barnacle rules. "I would not scuttle the old ship," exclaimed the senator vigorously, "but I would like to put her in dry dock long enough to have Iier bottom scraped." There was another rojnd of applause as Mr. Ma son concluded. Mr. Hoar, one of the veterans of the Sen ate, replied briefly to Mr. Mason. He pointed out that little could be expected from the committee on rules, as several of the members were engaged on the tariff bill and other work. He was in accord with much that the Illinois senator had said as to the need of action, but he differed from him on some of the criticisms against the Senate. SENT TO THE "GRAVEYARD." Mr. Gorman promptly moved to refer the resolution to the rules committee. Mr. Mason protested, saying this commit ter on rules was recognized as the "alto gether lovely graveyard to which are com mitted the bodies of deceased measures." The roll was called on Mr. Gorman's mo tion to refer, and it prevailed 32 to 21, as follows: Yeas Allen. Bacon. Raker. Bate. Rerry. Butler. Chilton, Cockrell. Faulkner, Gor man, Gray, Harris (Kan.). Hawley, Heit feld. Jones VArk.). Lindsay. McEnery. Mc Millan. Morgan. Mitchell. Murphy. Pasco, Pettlgrcw. Pettus. Quay, Rawlins. Roach, Sewell. Smith. Tillman, Turple and Wal thall. Nays Burrows. Chandler. Clark, Cullom, Davis. Fairbanks. Foruker, Frye. Gear. Hansbrough. Hoar, Mason. Mills. Nelson. lVrkins, Piatt (New York). Pritchard. Proctor, Spooner, Turner, Vest, Warren, Wellington and Wilson. Mr. Hoar followed with a motion dis charging the committee on rules from fur ther consideration of his resolution. Intro duced some time aro, for the revision of the Senate rules. Mr. Gorman afked that tho subject go over until to-morrow, and this arrangement was made. The calendar was taken up and the fol lowing bills passed: For the relief of the homestead settlers on that portion of the great Sioux reservation lying in Nebraska, formerly in the Territory, of Dakota, now the State of South Dakota: granting lands in the Black hills to the Nashville Presby terian Church of Nashvlllle, S. D. At 1:13 the Senate went into executive session. The doors were soon opened and the legislative session resumed. There was considerable difficulty In securing a quorum and It was necessary at one time to direct the sergeant-at-arms to summon absent senators. Mr. Chandler offered a concurrent resolu tion for an adjournment of the Senate and House from April 2iJ to May 3. with a view to participate in the Grant ceremonies at New York. Mr. Morgan's objection carried the resolution over. At 2 o'clock the bankruptcy bill was taken up. Mr. Nelson secured an agree ment that the voting on the substitute and all amendments to the bill be taken at 3 p. m. to-morrow. Mr. Turple argued against including cor porations within the benefits of bank ruptcy proceedings. An amendment pro posed by him was agreed to omitting public corporations from the operation of the bill. At 4 o'clock the bill was laid aside and the Senate adjourned. AN ELOQUENT PRELATE CAREER.

Many thousands of the promi nent Roman Catholics of the dlooese are In the city attending the celebration, and many noted divines of tho church are as sisting in the ceremonies. Not ono of the high dignitaries of the Ro man hierarchy in America can take rank with his Grace of Philadelphia as an orator, and few can point to a life so full of gentle ness, kindness and perfect repose of mind. An admirer recently said of the archbishop: "Ryan, I. suppose, will go to heaven when ho dies, but I don't see now he can go very high up near the throne; It is so easy for him to bo good. Most men have to strive to be good. He would have to strive to be bad." This admirer of the great ecclesias tic spoke the simple truth. The life of Patrick John Ryan has been as smooth anel quiet as that of an Arcadian shepherd. He is tall and fat. His face beams, liter ally, and from his eyes pours forth the light of beatitude. Physically he is the prover bial bishop, portly, dignified and sleek. Jn character he is gracious, good natured, lib eral, forgiving, and, above all, reposeful. As a clergyman he is an ardent and earnest worker in the vineyard of the Master. A quarter of a century ago Archbishop Ryan became titular bishop of Tricomla. He was consecrated bishop in the Church of St. John the Evangelist at St. Louis, of which he was the rector, and many of his warm iriends in St. Louis are here to-day to felici tate him on the completion of his twenty llvo years' work In the episcopacy. Archbishop Ryan was born in the little town of Cloneyharp. near Thurles, In the County Tipperary of Ireland. He is now sixty years old and at the zenith of his mental power. As a child he was deeply religious and was In love with the mys terious and beautiful rites of the religion of his fathers. He found, like Chateau briand, a depth of mystic poetry in the re splendant altar, tho soft lights, the aro matic incense and the heavy symbolism of the stately and elaborate ceremonials that form tho externals of the religion of Rome. From his boyhood he felt called to the priesthood, and his natural h well as his religious guardians did nothing to stop his tendencies in that direction. His loyhood and youth were spent among his books and in the open, pure air of the country. The one gave him the basis of his erudite mind; the other the foundation of tho rugged health that has staved with him through life and is his si ill In approach ing old age. A master in Rathmines. one Mr. McNaughton, taught him his humani ties and he was a very fair classical scholar before he made his entry Into Carlow Col lege, where he studied theology and ec clesiastical history. There are no more thorough divinity schools pertaining to tho Roman Church than those In Ireland, and young Ityan earned the notice of his pro fessors by the rapidity with which he learned to master the somewhat difficult studies and problems involved in the pur euit of Roman theology and metaphysics. At twenty-one ho was as prolicient as most men are at thirty. This brilliant youth gave promise of a manhood of great Intel lectual power, and that promise was not deceiving. As he reached his majority he finished the seminary course and was ordained a deacon. It was then that he conceived the ambition to come to America as a mission ary. He Bailed in 1SC2 and on landing at once set out for St. Louis, which was at that time the leading city of the West. He began his career in America by becoming professor of English literature in the Caron delet Theological Seminary in South St. Louis. One year after his arrival there he was ordained a priest and was appointed assistcint rector of the cathedral. In 1S.V5 he was made rector and filled that position until 1860. to be then placed in charge of the Church of the Annunciation. His labors there are made known in the fine parish school and the costly church that forms part of the wealth of the St. Louis diocese. During the civil war Father Ryan acted as chaplain to the military prison and hos pital In Gratiot street in St. Louis. He was given, through the Influence of General Frank P. Blair, a commission as chaplain in the United States army, but although he filled all the eluties of that office during the four years of the war ho declined to receive the pay or accept the rank that were properly his own. When the war was over Father Ryan was appointed revtor of St. Louis Church in St. Louis. In 1S(W, while the late Archblt-hop Kenrick was at tending the Vatican council in Rome. Father Ryan was appointed vicar general of the diocese, and In 1ST2 he was made co adjutor bishop. In November 183, he was called to Rome by the Pope, who created him archbishop, with the title of Salamlna. this being the first step of his removal from St. Louis to Philadelphia. He was so removed In 1SS4 to succeed Archbishop Wood. Since his coming to Philadelphia, thirteen years ago. he has won many fnends, not alone among those of his own faith, but among believers of all sorts. Ho is always sure of a distinguished audience, made up of Christians of many denominations and of nonchrlstians. when he speaks from the pulpit of the cathedral. He is a superb orator and very eloquent. Even as a boy he excelled In the elegance of his ellctlon. When Daniel O'Connell was imprisoned in Richmond bridewell, young Ryan was se lected by his costudents to prepare an ad dress of sympathy, and read it in their behalf to the patriot. The occasion and the speech the patriot made in reply form one of the most gratifying recollections in the memory of the ecclesiastic. When he visited Rome, in 1SGT. during the eighteenth centenary of the death of St. Peter, he was invited by the Pope to deliver the Eng lish course of the Lenten services, and he occupied the place that had been filled by Cardinals Wiseman and Manning and othfT brilliant orators. When Daniel O'Connell's centennial was celebrated at Dublin, in 176, Bishop Ryan was invited to deliver the oration, but he was compelled to decline. In 1579. when St. Patrick's Cathedral In New York was dedicatee!, he was the one selected by Cardinal McCloskey to preach the dedication sermon, and he preached from the pulpit of the magnificent pile when the cardinal was buried near the altar and the pallium was bestowed upon his successor, Archbishop Corrlgan. With these facts In mind it was r.o exaggeration to say that the Philadelphia prelate is the most eloquent of the high officers of the Roman Church in America, not to say in the world, for tho fame of his great eloquence is well known abroad. The archbishop has a fine presence and a strong, full. deep, rich voice, that perfe-ctly fills the great church auditorium he sneaks in. The full effect of his oratory Is by no means achieved through the restraints upon his activity caused by the old-fashioned pulpit, but even this restriction is lost sight of when he waxes warm with his theme and the stream of his eloquence flows in full tide and passion of power from his Hps. He has not had much building to do In his diocese here, but he has managed It ably, and has handlenl Its ever-Increasing wealth wisely. The archbishop has had time, un der these conditions, to travel a little. He went to Rome in 1SSS to act as orator on the occasion of Cardinal Gibbons' hatting, and while there he presented the Pope wltn a copy of the Constitution of the United States, which was a gift of President Cleve land to the Vatican. INDIANA P0ST0FF1CES CHANGES RECOMMENDED RV MESSRS. KAinn.YNKS AND FAIUS. Contest Over the Plaliifielel Offlce Set tled by the Pre Id en t In Favor of Taylor Ilefran. MR. STEVENS EXONERATED DANKER IUYVIVS CHARGES FOUND TO RE WITHOUT HASIS.. C. F. Springsteen Reinstated In the War Department Two CoiimuIn Ap pointed hy the President. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WASHINGTON. April 21.-Ranker Joseph I. Irwin, of Columbus.. Ind., through his at torney, Charles Tlngl?, of this city, is trying to get a rehearing of the charges against Mr. Stevens, indorsed for postmas ter of that city by Senator Fairbanks and Representative Overstreet. On the strength of tho report of Postoffice Inspector Fletch er, of Indianapolis, last week, that the charges could not be sustained, Mr. Irwin withdrew the papers he had submitted, but on second thought he concluded to make another protest against Mr. Stevens. Attorney Tingle met with a chilly recep tion at the Postoffice Department this aft ernoon and was informed that, so far as the department was concerned, the case would havo to bo considered closed; that the accusation reflecting on Mr. Stevens had been thoroughly investigated by ex perts and found groundless. It was sug gested to Attorney Tingle that he could appeal to the President if ho saw fit, and he left the department vowing he would adopt the suggestion. The documents on file in the department seem to fully exon erate Mr. Stevens, and there Is small like lihood that the present purpose to make him postmaster will be reversed through tho efforts of Mr. Irwin. Representative Faris, of Indiana, has recommended the following fourth-class postmasters for Hendricks county: Plain field (presidential), Taylor Regan; North Salem, John D. Adair; Maple wood, Jesse C. Pike; Coatsville, Joseph II. McClure; Brownsburg, Albert T. Webb; Cartersburg, Grant G. Martin. At Plainfleld there was a primary elec tion, in which five of the seven candidates participated. Joseph Bly was elected. To day Congressman Faris visited the White House and laid the circumstances before the President. Mr. Faris told the President that while Mr. Bly was a good man and entirely worthy, Mr. Regan was an old soldier and a delegate to the St. Louis convention and Mr. Faris believed he ought to be appointed. The President con curred in this belief and will act accord ingly. Senator Fairbanks has recommended the following fourth-class postmasters: Floyd count v Georgetown. George Sims; Edwardsville, Mrs. Ula S. Brown; Scotts ille Jacob Schmidt. Jennings County Beevllle, Miss Tena B. Smith. , . A. F. Springsteen, of Indianapolis, has been reinstated to a clerkship in the War Department and within a very'short time will be transferred to the Postoffice De partment. The reinstatement was ordered under tho "old soldier" provision. Mr. Springsteen enjoys the distinction of being the youngest soldier who served through the war. Controller Eckels gave George W. Robert son, of Mount Vernon, Ind., a chill te-day by refusing point blank his application for reinstatement to a position in the bureau of which Mr. Eckels ls practical dictator. Mr. Eckels said he did not propose to make any changes in his or permit any to be made during his term, old soldier or no old soldier. Oratory has received a reward In the ap pointment of Harry L. Bumham, the col ored campaign Demosthenes, to a position In the Indiana postal service. There Is likely to be a vacancy soon in tho postoffice at Clay City. The incumbent is shown to have "been too Industrious in the political vineyard last campaign. Marcus Sulzer. of Madison. Ind.. is here pressing1 his claims for assistant to the general land commissioner. Senator Fairbanks has Indorsed the ap plication of Lawrence Leatherman, of Val paraiso, Ind.. for the offlce of postoffice In spector, with headquarters at Cincinnati. This district includes Ohio. Indiana and Kentucky. Paul Williams, of St. Louis, has the backing of Senator Foraker for the place. The President to-day sent to the Senate the following nominations: Charles H. Smith, to be surveyor of customs for tho port of St. Louis, Mo.; Thomas If. Harri son, of Pennsylvania, to be agent and con sul general at Cairo. Egypt; James A. Smith, of Vermont, to be consul at Ieg horn. Italy: William Helmke. of New York, to be second secretary of the legation at the City of Mexico. The large batch of nominations sent to the Senate yesterday seems to have whetteel the appetite of the offici seekers, and there was a greater crowd at (he White House than for ten days past. Senators Perkins and White, of California, intro duced ex-Governor Pacheco, of California, who is an applicant for the mission to Bra zil. Congressman Babcock, of Wisconsin, chairman of the congressional committee, called to urge the appointment of Fred Schroeder, who was connected with the crmmittee during the late campaign, and who is a well-known newspaper writer, ns consul to some German city. Representa tive Marsh, of Illinois, introduced S. S. Price, of his district, who wants to be secre tary of Territory of Oklahoma. Among the other public men who called either alone or with constituents were Sen ator Foraker. of Ohio; Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire; Senator Hawley, of Con necticut, and Representative Hltt. of Illi nois. The last named, who was chairman of the foreign affairs committee of the last House, said his visit had no relation to the pending foreign complications. A delegation of about forty Texans called on President McKinley this afternoon, headed by Congressmen Hawley and Noonan and E. H. It. Green. chairman of the state Republican committee, and paid their respects. Earlier in the day some of the Texans called in the interest of the re tention of Mrs. Morrow, a daughter of (Jen. Houston, as postmistress at Abilene. She was appointed bv General Harrison and retained by Mr. Cleveland, and as a matter of sentiment they want her retained by the present administration. There were fully 2.500 people at the public reception this afternoon. Angell Will Not Stay Four Year. DETROIT. Mich.. April 21.
