Wa6hton, Nov. S3. Hon. Alfred C. Har-
mcr, member elect from your Fifth district, is
icre to-day, nnd was among the callers at the
White House. Mr. Harruer visited the Secre
tary of the Navy, and tnccecled in getting the
order recently Issued for the discharge of three
hundred men at your Navy Yard revoked.
Mr. llarmrr represented that turning these
men adrift at this reason would cause great
FufTerine-, and be thought if the Secretary could
poFsibly find work for them, tlicy should bo re
tained. The Secretary at once directed the
order dismissing them to be revoked. Mr. Ilr
mer promises to be a useful ntembor. This is
the second success he has had since his elec
tion, the first being the secured order to retake
member from the Pittsburg District, is here,
fettling up old rcores with tho men who op
posed him in the recent canvass. He called
upon the President to-day and had a long con
sultation. The President congratulated him oa
his success against the Democrats iu his dis
trict, and assured him that whatever he sug
gested relative to the distributioa.of Federal
patronage should be doce.
llr. Mamner and the PreHlrtent.
Senator 8umner, who arrived last night, did
not call upon the President to-day to pay h
respects. The feeling at the White House
towards him is anything but friendly, especially
since the publication of hit interview with a re
porter of the Chicago Jiepublican.
Although Mr. Sumner denies Its general accu
racy, there are people at the White House who
believe that Sumner said all the hard things
about the administration that are attributed to
him. There is no prospect of healing the breach
