Washington, Ovitolier 21. President Ar
thur stated this morning that he would not
send in the Cabinet nominations to-day. He
said he had requested that the Senate take a
recess, for the York town celebration, until
Saturday, but his request was misunderstood,
and that he had not intended to nominate
the Cabinet to-day, and probably would not
until Monday or Tuesday.
Iseellnea a Cabinet Position.
It is reported that Ex Governor Morgan,
of New York, who had been tender, d the
Treasury portfolio by President Arthur, has
written the President, declining to acc-pt the
position. It is said the reason assigned by
Governor Morgan for declining to accept is,
that it would be impossible, at present, for
him to sever his connection with the large
commercial business he is interested in.
1'bitt Tresnnrr Report.
The vote in the Senate calling for a Treas
ury reKirt excites considerable talk in that
department. The report itself is claimed to
be legj seusational than some expect. The
evidence, if published, would be interesting
reading, but it is not of the character of le
gal proof, come of it ia little more than the
current gossip of a large department. Other
parts are of a more damaging character.
Rigal af Way from the Clieetavta.
President Arthur and the Secretary of the
Interior to-day gave their conseut that the
Chicago, Texas and Mexican Central Kail
road and the St. Louis and St. Francisco
Road may apply to the council of the Choc
taw Nation, in the Indian Territory ,(for the
right of way through the Nation. The
council is now in sessiou, and it is under
stood that they will grant the right of way
to both roads, having waited only for per
mission from the Government.
A Hint to II n nary ,rs Torkrrs.
The Senate Commtit e on Military Aflairs
this morning agreed to report favorably on
all the army nominations nfernd to them
this session, except those of Carter, Kay
mond and Maddox, of New Y'crk, and of
Johnson, f Minnesota, to be asUtanl sur
geons. These nominations are withheld,
not because there is any objection to the ap
pointees, but the committee thought New
York seemed to begetting more than its
share of the new army surgeon', and that the
appointments should be more generally dis
tributed. Wlio nave K Away?
The decision of Secretary Windom rela
tive to the acceptance for redemption of the
balance of the fionds embraced in the 105th
call appears to have become known riy cer
tain brokers very soon after the Secretary
reached the c inclusion that it would be the
proper thing to do. The Secretary is satis
fied that the news leaked out prematurely,
and ike matter is being investigated. The
announcemt nt only passed through the hands
of a few persons, and there is no doubt but
the person giving the icformation will be
readily identified.
Kegmrdiax- lac Entry or t'aal Lands.
Secretary Kirk wood has given a decision
npon the entry of coal lands near
railroads, and the proper price. The Secre
tary says the price of the land depends
wholly npon the distance from the com
pleted railroad at the date of its entry, irre
spective of the preferred right of entry, and
if at the date of proof and payment, "which
constitutes entry, the land is more than fif
teen miles from such road, the price should
not be less than ten dollars per acre, and
that if it is within fifteen miles, the price
should not be less than twenty dollars. The
decision is intended to meet cases which may
arbe where the original location of a claim
for such land is made before the construc
tion of a railroad within fifteen miles, but
where entry and payment are not made until
after the completion of the road.

The Grand Jury have found an indict

him with embezzling over 90,000 from the

that Ho waste's bond was given to abide the

the warrant for Howgate's arrest be suspend

The Democratic Senators comment freely
uKn the action of the Republicans in voting
against calling for the testimony taken by
the Treasury Investigating Committee. They
think the Republicans made a mistake, and
several of the Democratic Senators say they
will, if they can get a proper opportunity,
call public attention to the vote of the Re
publicans, and maintain that it was done to
suppress the facts. The Democrats intend
to make capital out of it if they can. When
the report comes in, another motion calling
for the testimony, will be made by the Demo
crats, and this, they say, will give them an
opportunity to discuss the matter and em
phasize the points thev wish to make. It is
said that the Asristnnt Secretary will accom
pany the report ilh a written defense of

made the investigation, and was never in

pared for the private information of Secre
tary Windom. Upon his orders the commit
tee expected to go on with the investigation.
Every witness examined was under oath, in
accordance with a law of Congress empower
ing huch committees to administer oaths.
The opinion is, that the Senate will yet call
for the testimony, as the report is said to give
but au inaccurate idea of what the commit

party in the Sen at 'j intends to have the testi

as an indication of his purpose to act with

Davis voted, with the Republicans withont
hesitation. After the committee had sub

Assistant-Secretaries French and Upton, who
were more or less implicated in the testimony,
and who were mentioned in the statements,
were permitted to read it and file replies.

Tyner is making a hard fight to retain his
place, or at least lo be exonerated from any
complicity in the Star-route frauds. He had
au interview with the President to-day which
lasted three hours. He placed his side of
the case b.-fore the President, and his state
ment was listened to with patience and at
tention, frequent questions being asked,
which showed that the President had a pretty
thorough knowledge of the Star-route
aflairs. Tyner f iled to Bet the least
iudication of what impression he bad
made. He is to have another interview
to-morrow. There has been some effort to
day to enlist the Stalwart Senators in Tyner's
merest, but without much success. One
such Seuator said this evening that he could
see no grounds for special Stalwart sympathy
in lh". case, Tvner having had the whole

When the Memphis Cotton Exchange was
st.inerllt was insisted that in justice to the
pro iucer there should be no gambling in any
mays, connected with it, and it was finally
established with this understanding. About
a year ago the Tennessee Brokerage Association-
was established here to meet the de
map J-i of those speculatively inclined, and it
his been doing a most thriving business.
Thse are those who say that the principle
upon which it is based is simply that of
kenr, mrl that it is fully as much gambling.
In a '"i-ank" one beta npon black or red; in a
"bucket-shop" he puts his money npon a rise
or fall of wheat, cotton and so forth. There
is as much chance for him to win in one aa
in the other.
The Memphis "bucket-shop" haa claimed
all along that it made
but this claim is now being disputed before
the courts by Mr. J. J. Slover, who is deter
mined to get at the lowest strata of the case.
He is now prosecuting a case against the
a-so; iation before 'Squire Coleman which, if
rl- tt led, will show that the "bucket-shop"
here nas a mucn more lucrative business
than that of a mere commission.
The case was brought up before 'Squire
Coleman yesterday afternoon, and quite a
number of witnesses were examined. Nearly
all the afternoon was consumed by the case,
and it was coutinued until Monday, when
the evidence will be resumed. The case is
likely to become one of great interest, and
eventually it will involve, probably, the very
existence of the "bucket-shop." The concern
here is eubject to an association in Nashville.
