Berglandu, it is said, a connection of Gen Har
rison s, the captain's wife being a relative of
^aTB?,n:v 8ome of the War department
officials think the story is based only on con
clusions drawn from this alleged relationship.
Gen. Casey, chief of engineers, told a Stab
reporter this morning that he knew of no rea
son for making any such change as that pro
posed, and the matter rests entirely with him
The law requires that Col. Wilson's successor
shall be an engineer officer, and he is to be ap
pointed by the chief of engineers. The old
oftce of commissioner of public buildings and
grounds has been abolished by law, and all its
powers and privileges have been vested in the
chief of engineers.
Capt Bergland is now stationed at Willett's
Point, N. Y.
Against Double Fees.
ASXINO TO MATE A CONSVLAB TOACTICE CHANGED.
Complaint has been made to the Treasury
department of the action of the United States
consul at Manchester, England, in charging
double fees for authenticating quadruplicate
invoices of merchandise shipped to the United
States ik entry under the immediate transpor
tation act. The consul states that such double
fees are charged only when the invoices indi
cate that the goods are to be shipped to the
U. 8. for exportation to a foreign country,
that is, where the goods are simply to peas
across the territory of the United States, and
that his action is in aonordance with a practice
of long standing.
Secretary Fairchild, in a letter to the Secre
tary of State oa the subject, says that he is not
aware of anv legal justification foe such prac
tice, and thai, on the contrary, it seems to be
in direct violation of the statute prohibiting
consular officers from snaking any additional
voices! He quadruplicate in

There is still doubt about West Virginia and

claim from three to four in West Virginia.
They are given two in the above estimate.

EXTRA SESSION TALK.
It is hardly expected by any one that the re
publicans will pass their tariff bill this winter,
as they will have control of both branches of
the next Congress. This leads tt> the impression
that an extra session of Congress is liable to be
called immediately after Mr. Harrison's inaug
uration. so as to avoid so long a delay on this
question. They have sjso a Targe amount of
work before them in t?e organization gtt the
next House, which they might get tffrough
with before the time of the regular meeting.
There will undoubtedly be a large number of
contests in close districts, the result of which
will tend to increase their majority. They will
probably set to work at once to admit four new
states into the Union, by which they
WILL INCREASE THE ELECTORAL VOTE.
Besides this the new apportionment, atter
the eleventh census, will probably be made by
the Fifty-first Congress. This may result in
the loss of one or two representatives to the
south. In the northwest there will be increased
representation, and it is expected that the elec
toral college will be not less than twenty votes
stronger four years hence.
THE INAUGURATION BALL.
The Doubt About the Pension Building?
The City Post-Offlce Question.
Already there is talk about the inauguration
ball and the prospect of holding it in the court
of the pension building. It is supposed that
in case the city post-office is moved to this
court the ball cannot be held there. There is
some doubt as to the possibility of fitting up a
city post-office in the court of the pension build
ing for the sum appropriated, ?5,500. Postmaster
Ross is out of the city to-day. When asked by
a Star reporter, some days ago, about the re
moval of the office from its present location,
Mr. Ross said he thought that means would be
provided for moving the office. It is stated,
however, that all the funds under the direction
of the Postmaster General that could be used
to supplement this appropriation for the city
post-office have been appropriated to other
uses. The clause of the sundry civil appro
priation act providing for the' removal says:
"That the Postmaster-General be, and is here
by, granted authority to remove the Washing
ton city post-office to the center of the court of
the pension building in said city, and use such
portion of said court as is hereafter specified
for the principal post-office of said citv until
further action by Congress." The matter has
been for some time awaiting the return to the
city of the Postmaster-General. It is held that
the law is not mandatory upon him. Citizens
talking of the matter to-day thought the in
auguration committee could better afford to
pay the rent of the city post-office in its pres
ent quarters for several months than to erect
a new building.
THE PROPOSED PUBLIC HALL.
The project that was set afoot here when
there was a movement to secure the holding of
one or both of the national conventions here,
of erecting a grand hall, has again been revived.
8?ch a hall as proposed would provide for
immense gatherings of any kind. Mr. Lawrense
Gardner, who was active in furthering the
project, said to a Star reporter to-day that it
would be impossible to erect such a building
as proposed in time for the inauguration. The
plan was to erect a large building, at
a cost of $100,000, on the public ground
at 10th and B streets northwest.
This would have in it an immense hall, 380 by
100 feet, with a large number of smaller rooms
along the sides beneath the galleries. The
roof was to be arched. At one end of the
building were to be accommodations for a fire
engine company and a salvage corps. The fire
engine company would provide for the safety
and care of the building. It was proposed
that the cost of the building was to be de
frayed by public subscription, the use of the
ground being given by the government
Decision Against Judge Terry.
THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT DENIES HIS
APPLICATION FOB A WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS.
The Supreme Cojirt of the -United States to
day denied the application for a writ of habeas
corpus in the case of David S. Terry, of Cali
fornia, who was convicted of contempt of court
for a violent scene in which he and his wife
both attacked the officers of the court. The
application for the writ was made on the ground
that Terry, at the time of his sentence, was not
in the court-room and did not have notice of
the intention to bring him to triaL Justice
Harlan, who rendered the opinion, says that
the offense was committed in full view of the
court and that the punishment followed prac
tically without any intermission, and that the
case is not one in which this court should inter
fere. Justice Field took no part in the case.
Beautifying the City."
WHAT OOL. WILSON IS DOING TO UCPBOVE THE
PUBLIC RESEBVATIOPS.
Col. John M. Wilson, in charge of pnblio
buildings and grounds, is having an asphalt
walk laid from the 10th street entrance to the
Smithsonian ground* up to the main building.
The grading, soiling and seeding down on
the east front of the pension building is now
under way and will be finished as soon as the
city post-office authorities have completed their
arrangements for moving the posv-omoe into
the hall of the pension building. The northern
approach to the pension building is also being
improved
The reservation in front of the National
theater will be beautified, after the asphalt
walks have been laid, by the planing therein of
a fountain. It to CoL Wilson's intention to
make this triangle ss attractive as possible.
Elisha Williams, a respected citiaeo of Ta?a

MAY COME IN DECEMBER.
President-Elect Harrison Expected In
This City. .
It is more than probable that Gen. Harrison
will visit Washington during the early part of
December. Dr. Scott, the general's father-in
law, said to a Stab reporter last night that be
folly expected that the President-elect would
be here in a little while.
"I do not know," said the venerable gentle
man, "just what will call him here. It may be
business before the Supreme Court?for he has
much of that?or it may be he will come to con
sult with some of his old senatorial friends over
the various and important questions he now
must settle. I am satisfied, however, thut he
will come, and it is not at all improbable that
Mrs. Harrisdh will accompany him. Of neces
sity their visit will be a brief one. and then we
shall see them no more until just previous to
the general's inauguration."
An Indianapolis dispatch to the New York
Tribune says: Gen. Harrison is coming east in
about a month, and that he will spend several
days in New York.
FAULTY TUNNEL WORK.
Testimony Before the Military Court of
Inquiry To-day.
The War department court of inquiry into
the responsibility for faulty construction in
the aqueduct tunnel resumed its work this
morning at 10:30 o'clock.
The first witness called was Samuel A. Har
per, a bricklayer by trade and Hubinspector in
the tunnel He worked in the west shaft at
Howard University in March, 1885, and after
ward worked in the eastern end of the tame
shaft. The brick used was of good quality and
the bricklaying was thorough in every res]>ect.
The packing, so far as he saw, was very good.
The stone was hammered or forced in so that
it was perfectly solid above the arch. There
may have been some vacant spaces above the
key when the packers worked where there was
much timbering. As far as possible the spaces
between the timbers was filled up with loose
stone. Of course there were
PLACES THAT COULD NOT BE PACKED,
but they were not numerous. Witness was em
ployed as an inspector in July, 1885, and worked
up to February 1, 1886. Work was suspended
then until September. Witness resumed as in
spector and continued there until October, 1887.
Mr. Coryell, then engineer, first appointed wit
ness as inspector. Witness inspected work in
Howard University shaft when he com
menced. Mr. Coryell's instructions were
to see that the work was done prop
erly. Mr. Shadwell, whom witness superseded
as inspector, gave him a copy of the specifica
tions, and he endeavored to see that tire work
was done in accordance with them. Witness
had to inspect the work of the trimmers, the
bricklayers, and the packers. He had some
times taken charge of the work in a capacity
other than that of inspector; he did so because
he thought it was his duty to see that the work
was thoroughly done. He knew of no drv
brick-work being done. The packing was solid.
Witness examined the brick and cement. He
went up to the surface twice or three times a
day to examine the material; he
OFTEN FOUND FAULTY BRICK.
He would, therefore, be absent from his duties
below about three hours each day. Sometimes
when he returned to the tunnel he would find
evidence of faulty work having been done
during his absence, but not very frequently.
The foreman of bricklayers was in charge dur
ing his absence on top. * Witness used to see
Capt. Symons in the tunnel quite frequently.
He saw Major Lydecker in the tun
nel but twice?onCe when he went
through with the congressional committee
and once previous to that occasion.
When witness had to absent himself while the
bricklayers were ' keying out" he would order
the workmen to do no more than a certain
quantity, and those orders were generally
obeyed. Sometimes when the bricklayers were
some distance ahead of the packers the packing
would be done at night. On such occasions
there wjjuld be no one present on behalf of the
government. Witness never received any
present from the contractors, neither in money
nor in any other form. ? He was paid ?75 a
month by the government.
HE MADE PACKERS TEAR OCT DEFECTIVE WORE.
Col. Hodges questioned the witness rather
sharply as to the packing which he allowed to
be done during his absence, and Harper stated
that he was satisfied that none of the work so
done was done in any other than a satisfactory
manner. He had made packers tear out some
defective work, but not more than once or
twice.
In response to a ouery by Gen. Ruger, wit
ness said he thought the packers did faulty
work so that they might catch up with the
bricklayers and then sit down. Sometimes the
bricklayers helped the packers, but only on
extraordinary occasions.
Col. Cruighill asked witness if he remem
bered anv occasion when more work bad been
done by the night force than could properly have
been done by the number of men engaged, and
witness replied that the force always did a fair
amount of work and when he inspected the
work next morning it was well finished and
seemed to be solid.
The cross-examination was then taken np bv
CaDt. Chester, counsel for Lieut. Townsenct,
and witness reasserted that he had only seen
Major Lydecker in the tunnel on two occasions
Witness might have rejected bad brick without
poing up to the surface to prevent such defect
ive material from being sent down, but he
thought it best to go up. If the brick came
down some of it might easily have been
worked into the arch.
COULDN'T BEE THROUGH A STONE WALL.
Capt Chester?"Could you tell the quality
of work done overnight in your absence other
than that visible on the face?"
Witness?"No."
Capt. Chester?"Why?"
.Witness?"Because f couldn't see through a
stone wall."
AN 0VER8EER OF lfASONBT.
Jacob B. Masters, for the past twenty-five
years a superintendent on the Chesapeake and
Ohio canal, was then sworn. He was employed,
he said, as an overseer of masonry in the tun
nel from Marcb to September, 1887. His duties
called him in both the east and west shafts at
ltock creek. Witness' instructions were ex
plicit, and were to the effect that the packing
was to be laid in cement. He never had
any copy of the specifications in his
possession, but he understood what they called
for. The average amount of arch constructed
each ni$ht was about fourteen feet. The pack
ing behind the side walls was always good, and
a sufficient quantity of mortar was used. Wit
ness often heard Sub-contractor Emery instruct
the masons and packers to do their work prop
erly. Witness never received any present from
the contractors?
NOT EVEN A ClOAR.
Quite an amusing and confusing colloquy
took place between the court and the witness
on the subject of brick inspection. The wit
ness failed to grasp the meaning of General
Ruger's inquiries, ana in spite of the kindly in
tervention and assistance of CoL CraighUl" and
CoL Hodges the needed information was not
obtained.
Witness said he sometimes detected poor
mortar, and had it sent up to the surface.
Witness was not discharged: ne left of his own
accord. The work was too hard for him. Col.
Kirlin discovered bad work, and told witness
of it, and witness then said he would "quit."
He had told Representative McComas (who
was his influence) some few days previous that
he would leave.
THI PACKERS WKRX LAST
and were generally unsatisfactory, and as there
seemed to be no promise of better men being
employed he concluded he would get out. A
younger and more active inspector might have
been able to get along better, but witness said
he oould not move around rapidly enough to
watch men working on four oenters at the saaas
time.
Lieut Towusend cross-examined the witness
M some length, but nothing of any apparent
importance was developed. Witness said he
had bean instructed to ?ischanre anv workman
doing bad work, but he had never discharged
anv cm, although be had disoovered bad work,
i At 1*4> the court took a recess for an hour.

INSISTING ON POWDERLY.
His Friends WiU Try to Keep Him at

Indianapolis, Nov. 12.?The eleventh annual
session of the general assembly, knights of
labor, will convene in this city on Tuesday.
The session promises to be one of the most im
portant in the history of the organization.
One of the points around which a contest will
center will be the election of a general master
workman, also an executive committee and the
full list of general officers. General Muster
Workman Pollrderly is expected to arrive in the
city early to-day. Mr. Powderly has repeetedly
stated that he would not stand for re-election,
but his intimate friends declare that he is tho
only man in whose hands the order can be
safely trusted, and it is known they will insist
upon his accepting the leadership another
term. It is claimed he can be re-elected if he
is willing to accept. Indications, however,
point to a vigorous contest, as Thomas Barry,
C. W. Carlton, J. P. Buchanan and other lead
ers of the opposition are going to be present in
force. It remains to be seen upon which side
of the contest Charles H. Litchinan, late gen
