two greatest Uareans in the Government
that the transfer of the folics by the retire
ment cl Secretaries McCallch and Hatton,
and the indnctian of Manning and Vilas,
had not ncade a jar or jostle. The work ran
along just as smoothly, and there was jnst
ai mach of it done on tho day of
the transfer ond the sncc;eding dys
as at any timo before. There hu,
it may be laid, been an Improvement in the
8 -rvice already. The word has gone alonj;
the line that this is to be a working adminis

shall earn their salaries, and cow there li a
hum at the hour set for commencing work,
and no Idleness is observed at any time.
The chanue of administration has given a
new atmosphere to everything. Tnera ia

Special to the Sentinel.
Washington, March 11. Senator Voor
hees, representatives Holman, Cobb and
others will call on Secretary Manning to
morrow morning in the Interest cf ex-Representative
Stockslager for Second Comp
troller of the Treasury. They will have
euch strong indorsements that It is probable
he will receive the appointment. No appli
cant was ever more earnestly recommended
for a place than Stockslager. It was at first
determined by Indianians that Stockslager's
name should be presented f jr First Comp
troller, but he preferred the duties of Sec
ond Comptroller. The salary ($3,C03 a year)
is the same for both positions.

Hush of Callers at the White House In.
!lmtnlhed The Depnrtnients Also
Crowded With Vlsltors-Uazen'n
Court Martial, Etc.
Washington, March 11. There was aboat
til usual rush of visitors to the White
Hons to-day. The Freeident arose early
and at once betook himself to opening the
mail, which was unusually large. As one
cf the clerks at the White Honse put it,
'President Cleveland receives as many
letters in a day as the ex-President received
c a week." It is a fair inference Ihat many
lettt- r relate o appointments to offle, The
Prrsident ran hurriedly through his mil
ao4 then began hfs reception of visitor,
many of whom had been waiting some tio -.
Amorg the callers were Congressional de'--gations
from Kentucky, Illinois, low ,
North Carolina and Florida.
The Secretary of War called about nonu
and had a lone; conference with the Pres.
dent. At 1 o'clock the duors of th Whita
Houe were thrown open to the public, and
the President was kept busy receiving n.s
callers fcr over an hour.
Colonel Lamont said to day that the re
daction in the clerical force ia the White
House was made merely in the interest of
economy, and therefore no appointment)
will be made to 11 the vacancies. He said
there might possibly be one or two more
changes in the personnel of the force, but
that would ba all. Since President
Cleveland's inauguration the entire clerical
fore, including the Trlvate Secretary, had
been busily engaged frcm 8 o'clock in tt o
morning until midnight, and It is expected
the rush of business will compel a continu
ance of these working hours for some ti"e
to come. One cf the regulations of the
House prohibits employes from smoking in
Edward D. Clark, of Vicksburg, Mies., to
day nominated for Assistant Secretary of
the Interior, is a member in very high
siandicg cf the Bar cf Mississippi,
and has practiced before tne Supreme
Court of the United States. He is said to be
a man of great legal learning and force of
char; cter, who has been so wedded to hi3
profession that be has steadfastly declined to
have any connection with politics, althoagh
holding strong Democratic opinions.
At the Postcfficeand Interior Departments
the rush of visitors continued to day without
diminution, and notices have been posted in
conspicuous places by the Postmaster Gen
eral and Secretary of the Interior to the
efiect that only Senators and Representatives
will be received after noon. This regulition
is beginning to have a perceptible elfect, and
both these ofiic;a's now find time todsvete
a small part of the day to the transact! 3n of
necessary routine bcslns.
Tie Secretary of the Treasury had a large
number of callers tD-dy, Including three
delegations; one from Kentucky, healed by
Senator Beck and Speaker Carlisle; another
frcm North Carolina, headed by Senator
Vance, and the third from Virginia, headed
by Representative Barbour.
Secretary Manning has appointed Eusene
Hifgits, of Maryland, Cnief of the Appiint-
ment Divelon of the Treasury Department,

Mr. Higgins is a friend of Senator Gorman.
General Elack, the newly appointed Com

Republlcan Caucus on the Senate Commit
WASiiiXGTr:;, March 11. A cauens of Re
publican Ser. atorsand it3 Caucus Committee,
which has b ien engaged early and late since
the sessir bcran npon the allotment of
places on j ijorj'y sides cf the Senate's cjrn
mittees, fiiJfhed its ta?k tday, bat the
result will not be formally declared till to
morrow. Senator Conger succeeds to the
Chairmen ihip cf the Committee cn
Pcotoffices and To3t Roads, made
vacant by the retirement of Ssnator Hill.
Senator Pike takes the chairmanship of the
Committee on Claims, held by Senator Cam
eron, of Wieconsin. Senator Sewell takes
Senator Logan's place at the head of the
Committee cn Military Affairs. Senator Ev
arts was made a member of the Committee
on Judiciary and Foreign Relations. Sen
ator Teller was xnada chairman of tho Com
mittee on Mines and Mining and a member
cf the Committee on Pablic Lands.
The Judiciary Committee is increased by
one, and the Commerce and Pablic Build
ings Committees by two members each.
Many other changes were maia in the
membership of the Committees for the pur
pose of equalizing the honors, responsibili
ties and labors of the committee rooms, and
the task of the Caucus Committee was found
one of considerable difficulty. Its members
are unusually reticent about their proceed
ings, but it is understood the feature of thoir
worK which proved th9 mo3t perplexing re
lated to the Finance Committee.
Senator Sherman, it is said, asked to be
relieved from further service upon this C3m
mittee unless its composition was changed
in seme respects. He is credited with the
impression that New England ideas were
dominant in the committee, and is sdd to
have piyen this as his reason for wishing to
withdraw. Tni, it ia reported, when
brought before the lall acca9 precipitated
a discussion of the tariff, in which wool and
rsr iron figured as the leading elements,
Nei'her caucus nor Caucus Committee seems
to have seen its way clear to make the
chaDge desired by the Senator from Oh'o,
for the Republican membership of the Fi
nance committee, as it stands to
night, is the came as last
session. Many Senators have ured
Sherman to remain upon the FinancS) Com
mittee, upon the ground that his familiarity
with the financial a Hairs of the Government
would be then moit conspicuously service
able. He now stands second on the com
mittee list. He was foot at the Capital to
day, acd his further purposes in regard to
the matter are unknown.

Officer the strike Stronger
St. Louis, March 11. A Sedalia spBcial to
to tha Post-Dispatch says: "Ihe situation
remaines materially unchanged. Superin
tendent Hager requested the Mayor this
morning to swear in the Pinkerton detec
tives, but the Mayor refused on the ground
that the law required one year's residence
before a man could act as an oilicer. Tne
Superintendent sent for the Executive Com
mittee of the strikers this morning, and
asked if they had not violated the contract
made la9t night to allow ireJght trains to
run. They replied they had not, as tha
promise was made with the understanding
that freights were to be run if men could e
found to run them. Three attempts were
made last night to take out trains, and
several this morning, all cf which failed on
account of the men employed leaving the
trains. The committee cf citizens and
strikers who went to Jefferson City have not
Kansas Citv, Mo., March II. At Kans
City and Sedalia, Mo., there is little change
in the situation. If anything, the strike is
stronger than yesterday. No freight train?
were moved to day. No violence was used
to prevent it, but when p.n engineer would
step on the locomotive a party of strikers
requested theeDgirear to take the eng:ne
back to the round house, which he did. This
was tried several times with different men
with the sanre result. The railroad com
pany, through Superintendent Hager, noti
fied the city authorities that if any damage
was done to the company's property the city
would be held responsible. The committee
cf citizecs who vitited tte Governor U d.y
retcrt nothing new. The Governor main
tains that the law must be enforced; If no
violence ia used by the strikers he does not
intend to interfere with the militia. This
evening the militia were still at Centrtown
awaiting ord rj.
Paujc:, Kas., March 11. Another quiet
day amorg the Missouri Pacific strikers.
They aie still masters of the situation. Ad
jutant General Campbell, teat here by Gov
ernor Martin to investigate matters, arrived
here to day and h8d a conference with the
Mayor and the authorities, r.nd the Execu
tive Core mittee of the strtkers. After thor
ough invts'gaticn he concluded there wis
no need of troops. 9 tbe company's property
was not endangered. He returned to Topeka
th a afternoon on a special engine.
Ka.nsasCity, March 11. All the Wabash
trains end the Missouri Pacific passenger
trains frcm this taint are now running as
rsuai. Tne only work psrmitted in the
Missouri Pa?idc yards is the switching cf a
few freight cars that the strikers are aMow
ic to be moved to accommodate shippers.
An agent of a connecting line stated to a
Times reporier this evening that ha wai in
formed to-day, by a representative of the
Missouri Pacific, that the freight blockade of
that road would bs removed to morrow.
This report, if authentic, is understood to
mean tnat the railroad olli-ia'.s expect either
to efTect a compromise to morrow, or force
aa issue and una2rtake to operate the freight
trains despite the opposition of the strikers.
A small reserve police force was kapt on
duty to day, but there hss been no oceasioi
for their service or that of n loc.1 military
company of forty men, also held in readiness
in ewe of an emergency. It is reported the
Missouri Pacific pay car will arrive here to
monow, though not yet due for three days.
Atchison, Kan., March 11. Governor
Martin and the Rsilrcad Commissioners were
in secret conference the greater part of the
day with the Executive Committee of the
strikers, and I) strict SaparJn'endeot Fallon,
of ihe Missouri Pacific. Tho strikers pre
sented their grievances, and alter dincaneion
of the matter, at tho suggestion of the Gov
ernor, the Commissioners consented,
if both sides were willing, to
act aa arbitiators. There was
no pretense that the Commissioners had any
authority to arbitrate, bat thty consented to
act in hopes the difficulty might bs settled
amicably. After the conference adjourned
they communicated to the strikers the propo
sition of the Governor.
The meeting was largely attended and
lasted two hours. They then adjourned, first
haviDglauthorized the committee to give
their ultimatum which is said will be a de
mand first for the restoration of the October
rates, and then the arbitration decision of
aroitors to bs c jeeable to both side. This
evening the committee was in Eessio.i with
the Governor and Commissioner?.

A few weeks since we gave an account of
the trial cf Jacob Eberle, charged with as
assault on his neice, which consisted in kiss
ing her acainst her wishes. As stated at the
time, he was fined $10 and costs, amounting
to about $r,5, but the afterclap e?ercs to
bring more woe to Jacob than the original
blow, snd is not yet ended. It eeem3 in re
taliation for being prosecuted he swore out a
warrant for breach of tbe peace against Jacob
Knoefio. the husband, and Will Kriel. the
father of tte young bridr. They were duly
triea and acquitted, and right here was ihe
sarprise in store f jr Jake, for the laws of the
great State cf Indiana make the plaintiillia
b'e for the co3ts in such a case, where the
defendants ate fcuni not guilty. In this
ce the costs were about iGö, wnich the
Constables attempted to collect. Being ra
f need payment yesterday, Jacob Seidel was
going to sell his share in the grist mill, but
there was no bidder. The mill was
just started about two months ago, aod
owned by Mr. Eberle and his wif,
bbe having a three-fifths and he a
two filths interest. To day the same
constable went to the mill and
presented a delivery bond for
the signature of Jacob, so his share of the
mi.1 could be taken, the now thoroughly en
raged Jacob tcok the bend and tore it ujl
For this we hear cbargej are also preferretr.
Later the dauntless constable entered the mill
aud, seating himself on a piece of machin
ery, signified his intention of seizing it, but
he aain demurred, and by placing his hand
on his hip pecket, mve tb.9 cllicer an invi
tation to leave, which he accepted forth
with; for which, also, charges aie preferred.
They will all be sifted through the Justice
mill. Taken all in all, this is a great deal of
trouble over a kiss and we sympathize with
Jacob, but hope that hereafter he will kiss
his own wife.
