advertise for proposals for filling about six acres *
or the Potomac flats near Easby's point The for- S

and since then a number of bids have been re- r<

Secretary Lincoln on Gen. Crook.?Secretary ?
Lincoln stated to a Star reporter that he thought n
that Gen. Crook would arrive here the last of this h
week or the first of next week. "Gen. Crook," he 11
continued, "is a man that has been working hard, C
and he needs rest, and therefore I telegraphed him ^
not to hasten, but to make t'ae trip leisurely, as
there was no necessity of his being here r'
before Secretary Teller's return to the city." In a
answer to a question as to the reported placing of E
fie captured Indians <m the San Carlos reservation,
the Secretary said: "That Is all a mistake,

the Indians to the reservation, and I don't a
think he has disobeyed orders."

Mr. D. B. Parker, who was appointed city post- T
master last ?atur<?ay, has not yet returned to
Washington. At the Post Office department this
afternoon it was stated that he WAS expected today
or to-morrow. It appears now to be probable
that Mr. Parker will not accept the position offered C
him. The Postmaster General, when asked to-day 8(
about a report that Mr. Partcer had declined the tl
offlce, stated that he could not tell whether Mr. G
Parker would acccpt or decline It until he came di
here. Mr. Parker has not yet accepted the offlce, n
and, so far as could be ascertained this afternoon, ai
had not In any forntal way declined W
it It was understood.ThowevtT, by Post H
Offlce officials that h*r would decline. T

The Hill Investigation.
R. WILBUR, OF NEW YORK, TESTIFIES THAT UK.
HILL WANTED PAT FOR SETTLING AN OLD CLAIM.
The H1U investigating committee resumed its
isslon at 11 o'clock, ana J. M. Wilbur,
t New York, took the stand, and was questioned
y Mr. Coleman. Witness bad an account against
tie United States for putting In Illuminated tiling
)r the New York post office, and presented bis
ccount to Mr. Hill in person In March, 1877. Mr.
[ill, who looked It over, said It wa3 all right, but
d(led that be ought to have something for settling
uch an old account. Ilo said he would refer the
latter to Mr. Gannon (an employe of bis office),
te called Mr. Gannon, who took witness into anther
room and told hltn they ought to have 10 per
ent for settling the claim. \V itness neither asfntel
nor dissented, but said nothing. Subseuently
witness called on the Secretary, and
)und the claim had been disallowed. Witness
fterwards called Mr. Hill's attention to Gannon's
onnectlon with contracts, and afterwards, upon
dvlce, called Assistant Secretary Mcormick's
attention to Mr. Gannon's
ise,anl as a result Gannon was removed. Witess
believed that both Hill and Gannon made aderse
reports upon his (Wilbur's) claim. Mr. Hill
sported to the Secretary that his (witness') claim
rasnot worthy of consideration. Subsequently
ecretary French reported in favor of sending the
laim to the Court ot Claims, and afterwards 8ecstary
Sherman reported in favor of sending It to
ongress, as It Involved an appropriation of above
J,000. The matter was afterwards favorably conidered
by Congressional committees. Mr. Hill
ppeared before the Senate committee and opposed
he claim. The claim is still unpaid.
On cross-examination Mr. Thomas asked:
How have you supported yourself durl ng the
ast six years7"
Objection to the question led to a prolonged dlsusslon
as to Its propriety and admissibility, and
lie question was changed to "what business have
ou been engaged In?"
Witness for the past three years bad been enaged
upon a farm In Fairfax county, Virginia, as
uperlntendent A protracted cross-examlnatton
nsued, the Intent of which appeared to be to exract
an admission that witness' claim was
gainst Bartlett, ltobbins & Co., and not against
Ques.?Why did you not make a record of this
onversatlon which you alleged to have had with
[r. Hill in which you say he asked for 10 per cent?
Ans.?Well, I thought it was rather a strange
roceedlng on the part of a government official,
ut I was a stranger In Washington at that
Imp, and I did not know but that It was the cusam
with officials here. Witness said further,
tiat he had no secret of the matter, but had told a
reat many people that Mr. Hill had asked him for
9 per cent of his claim for passing It.

The Virginia. Duelists.
0 news from them up to 8 p. m.? an expected
meeting in west virginia.
No Information had been received up to 2 p. m.
)-day from the Virginia duelists, though friends
fboth parties In Washington are anxiously on
be lookout to hear something. The presence of
enator Rlddleberger and CoL Walker, two prom
lent readjusters, in the city yesterday gave rise
3 the rumor that they were here in connection
rlth the duel. They left last night saying they
rere going to Richmond. Senator Rlddleberger's
rlends say that he has Lot had anything to do
rlth the controversy. The published report that
oL Popham and Judge Riley, two friends of
Ham, had suddenly ana rather mysteriously left
awn on some business connected with the much
ilked of, but long protracted "meeting," was
rithout foundation. A Star reporter saw both
entlemen last evening and again to-day. They
ad no Information even as to the whereabouts of
llam. Judge Riley said: "I'm too old for fighting
nd would not have any connection with a duel,
iy mission on earth Is to keep peace, not to stir
p fights." The belief among the friends of Elam
nd Beirne here Is that they will meet to-morrow
omewhere in West Virginia, as the rain will preent
their coming together earlier. One gentlelan
said this afternoon: 41 know they were over
X) miles apart yesterday."
The Elam party left Richmond Monday night In
ehlcles and drove some thirty miles up the
besapeake and Ohio railway, for the purpose of
iking a train for West Virginia, where Beirne
nd his party were to meet them, early
aough yesterday afternoon to fight, but If nothlg
intervenes in the matter It may culminate toay.
R. F. Beirne reached Lewisburg, W. Va.,
uesday night, and is still in the neighborhood.
