Paris, Jan. 7.?The BouLuigist organs ridi cule the candidacy of M. Jacques, president of the council of the Seine, who was nominated yesterday by the republican congress to oppose Gen. Boulanger in the election on the 27th instant for the seat in the chamber of deputies for the department of the Seine, made vacant by the death of M. Hude. They say that M. Jacques is too obscure a man to rally the vote of the electors of Paris. In an interview to-day Gen. Bonglanger stated that Gen. Montaudon, who was elected to the chamber of deputies yesterd.iv from the department of the Son)me, though described as a royalist, is really a sup porter of the Boulangist policy. The general said that the boulangist victories in the sup plementary elections presaged his return to power. m Balfour's Body-Guard Increased.

The room of the Senate committee on appro priation! was tenanted for aome time to-day by resident* of the District who were anxious to secure favorable action by the committee on items in the District appropriation bill in which they are interested. Commissioners Webb and Wheatley were present, ready to answer questions. Messrs. John Joy Edson and A. 8. Pratt asked for an appropriation of #25.000 for the National homeopathic hospital. The board of managers of the hospital think the useful ness of the institution is much impaired by the lack of sufficient and suitable buildings. They want to build wards for male and female col ored pattents, a maternity ward, and a new kitchen. An elevator is also a necessity, and the erection of fire-escapes is required by law. To do these things, and to effect other improve ments, the sum of t25.000 is needed, and the request of the managers for an appropriation of that sum is indorsed by Secretary ltayard, who is president of the societv. Messrs. Albert Behrend and Morris Clark pleaded for an im mediate extension of 11th and 13th streets. Messrs. Simon Wolf, John L. Vogt, Anton Eberly, and Dr. Walter asked for $20,000 with which to replace, by a brick structure, the frame building now occupied by the German American orphan asylum. Ex-Commissioner Edmonds wan also present, and he chatted for a while with Senators Plumb and liale.

LOUISIANA PLANTERS CALL OX COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE COLMAX. The delegation from the Louisiana Sugar Growers' association, which is now in the city, called iq a body thi? morning upon Commis sioner of Agriculture Colmau and were pre sented by the Hon. Mr. Wilkinson. Mr. John Dyinond, the president of the association, ad dressed a few remarks to the commissioner, thanking him. on behalf of the association, for what he had done in introducing and de veloping the new diffusion process in the man ufacture of sugar from the sugar cane. Mr. Dymond said that planters could no longer af ford to continue the old process of making sugar, and that the new process was certain to supplant it. He said that even the poorest of the sugar planters would get out of their dif ficulties much quicker by adopting the im provement which had been introduced by the department of agriculture. This admission, coming from such a source, is.of unusual sig nificance in its relation to the future sugar production of this country. It will be remem bered that this process is as well adapted to the sorghum as to the sugar cane. Interior Department Changes.

THE HOUSE DEADLOCK. The House was still in a deadlock up to a late hour this afternoon, every effort to adjourn having proved fruitless. The democrats tried to told a caucus this afternoon, but owing to the rt- adlock they were compelled to postpone it until this evening, when they hope to come to an agreement and to fix upon a date for the Oklahoma bill. It is thought, however, very doubtful if they will succeed. DISAPPOINTED DIPLOMATS. The most disappointed people at the action of the Senate in going into secret session to discuss Mr. Edmunds' resolution re garding the attitude of European governments toward interoceanic canals ou the American continent, were the the diplomats from the central and South American states. They are vitally interested in tue matter, and, having missed the open discussion of Saturday, they determined to hear that of to-day aud almost filled the diplomatic gal lery. When the motion to go into secret ses sion was adopted they departed, greatly disj ointed, and expressing their inability to un erstand the policy of Congress, or u branch of it, which varied" so from day to day. NEW MEXICO WANTS TO RE A STATE.

St. Clair, on the charge of false pretenses, was called?Mr. Campbell Carrington for the defendant and Assistant Dis trict attorney Mullowney for the government. DcHughes was arrested for false pretenses in obtaining $49 from Mrs. Kate Smith under promise of marriage, and subsequently it was ascertained that while acting as an agent of an insurance company of Baltimore he wrote to the agents there that his daughter was lying very ill, and asked for an advance of $100, and then sending a telegram that the daughter had died. The check was sent him, whereas he had no daughter here, and the whole pretenses were false. DETECTIVE BAFF'fl TESTIMONY. The first witness was Detective Raff, who tes tified that he had a conversation with the pris oner when the latter was under arrest in the 12th-street station-house. Whi n witness told Newman, that he had no right to represent that his child was dead he replied that that made no difference, for he was employed by the company. He at first declined to state where his room was. and witness told him he would find it. The next day witness went to the room and fouud some letters addressed to Dallas M. DeHnghes, and he answered, "It is a man whose life I have insured." An objection was made and a recess taken. A POSTPONEMENT. Mr. Mullowney, in answer to the court, stated that he was not conversant with the case, and did not until this morning know that he was expected to prosecute. He also stated that Judge Hoge and others of the office were sick. The court directed a recess, stating that he hoped the case would be prepared. After recess the court respited the jury till morning, stating that the case was not in'con dition to proceed with. State Patronage. SENATOR QUAY WBESTLINO WITH TITE SUBJECT. Senator Quay was the central fignre to-day in several little conferences on the floor of the Senate. The longest and apparently most im portant of these was held with Representa tive William D. Kellev. Cabinet matters are resting for awhile, and the practicai politicians are looking after the ends of the strings which they expect to pull on state patronage under the incoming adminis tration. With such affairs the silent Senator is now wrestling. He expects to leave Wash ington about the latter part of next week for Florida and there he will seek the rest he needs. He does not expect to return for a month or more. Removal of the Indian Rnrean. THE NEW QUARTERS IN THE ATLANTIC BUILDING TO BE OCCUPIED TO-MOBROW. To-day Secretary Vilas signed a lease with A. T. Britton, the president of the Atlantic build ing company, for the use of all the rooms on the eighth floor and ten rooms on the seventh floor of that building. The lease is annual, with the privilege of renewal yeitrly for five years. The rooms will be occupied by the Indian bureau, which is now located in the building of the Second national bank, on 7th street. The removal to the new quarters will be made to-morrow. The Atlantic build ing is on the south side of F street, between 9th and 10th streets, and was recently built by a company composed of citizens of this city. The inauguration committee occupy quarters in this building, which were tendered for that purpose by the company. The new accommo dations are considered by the officials of the Indian bureau as much superior to their pres ent quarters. Real Estate Matters. T. W. Smith has bought, for $4,100, of J. H. Soule, pt. lot 8, sq. 868, 20J* by 123 feet on East Capitol, bet. 6th nnd 7th streets northeast. Eliza C. Merrill has bought of W. P. Lips comb, for $6,000. sub. 31, block 5, Le Droit Park. John E.

Custody.?Friday night a negro named James Gray got in a Belt line car on 4th street and snatched a pocket book from Mrs. Elmira Rawlings. He lumped off the car and ran, but was soon overhauled bv one of the passengers and held until the arrival of Policeman Jamison, when he was taken to the sixth precinct station. Tho pris oner also proved to be the negro who was wanted for shooting at John A. Ruppert some months ago. He was also identified as bein? the person who attempted to rob a car on the Co umbia road a few nights ago. To-dav in the Police Court Gray was tried for assault with intent to kill and larceny from the peison, and was held in both cases for the action of the grand jury, Gttiltt or Robbery from thi Person.?To day Edward Golway and James Quarles, two colored boys, were tried for robbery of the person, 35 cents, from Wm.

If the Qnwtlon of Statehood Is Sot Settled They Want an Extra Session. Judge Moody, one of Dakota'* Senators-elect, has just arrived in this city, after having stop ped over in Indianapolis to consult with Gen. Harrison on matters of interest to those terri tories which are now seeking admission as states. Mr. Moody is extremely cautions in his expressions just now, because he fears that bis words may be quoted as coming from Gen. Harrison. He says, however, that the chances are all in favor of an extra session of the Fifty first Congress. "The leaders of the democrats in the House," said he to a Stab reporter to-day," are too far apart on this subject; they cannot agree. If they could come to an understanding as to Da kota's fitness for statehood there would be a renewal of the old trouble on the question of division. Of course it is possible that this Con gress may do something for us. but it seems to me to be rather improbable just now." There will be a delegation of Dakotans in town during the latter portion of this week. Fifteen or twenty of the more prominent citizens of the territory are now on their way here to do all in their power to push legisla tion looking to the speedy admission of the territory as two states. The delegation will be headed by Judge Burtlett Tripp, chief Justice of the supreme court of Dakota, and Goy.-elect Mellette. The two great political parties sre about equally represented in the delegation. If it becomes apparent that nothing will be done by the House before the 3d of March, then the delegation will endeavor to secure from republicans who will be in the next House a memorial to President Harrison asking him to call an extra session. DISTRICT GOVERNMENT. RinE TRACKS FOB ISAUOUBATION TBAINS. a he District Commissioners have addressed a letter to Senator Ingalls in relation to a bill to authorize the Commissioners to permit the temporary occupation and crossing of the streets by the B. and O. railroad tracks to meet the demands or increased travel at inauguration times. The Commissioners say that "there seems to be no reason why the "accompanying bill should not become a iaw with the excep tion that the Commissioners believe it to be fur I I?oro. Pre^eral>'e if discretionary authoritv i should be vested in them permitting ail rail , road companies entering the citv of Washing ton to lay temporary tracks for the accommo dation of traffic for a period not exceeding 30 days during any influx of the people of the L nited States into the city of \\ ashington. 1 he passage of a bill of this character would seem to be reasonable and proper." t?iXTB* POLIrEMKN* FOB THE IXAUOUBATIOX. I lie District Commissioners to-day drew tip and sent to Chairman Hemphill, of the House District committee, a draft of a bill provid ing "that -f 7,000. or as much thereof as mav be necessary, payable from any money in" the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, "and from the revenues of the District of Columbia, in equal parts, is hereby appropriated out of any money in the Treasury, not otherwise appro priated, to enable the Commissioners of the j District of Columbia to maintain public order j l'rote?t life and property from the 28th of l ebruary to the 9th ot March, 1889. both I inclusive. Said Commissioners are hereby au I thonzed and directed to make all reasonable j regulations necessarv to secure the preserva I lion of public order and protection of life and I property, and fixing fares by public convey j ances during said period. Any person violat ing any of such regulations shall be liable for each offense to a fine not to exceed ?25 in the I olice Court of said District." The Commis sioners estimate for 400 special policemen. THE RIGHTS OF A FRAME HOUSE. The question has been raised at the District building whether a frame house has any rights that a brick house is bound to respect." A few days ago Mr. Frank W. Adams wrote to the Commissioners as follows: "I am the owner of a frame house in this citv. The house is en tirely on my own land. My neighbor wishes to build a party wall, and in order to do so will be compelled to tear the side of mv house out be cause my house is built close up to the division line. Will you kindly inform me what the pro visions of the building regulations are upon this subject, and whether or not mv neighbor can tear my wall down in this manner? Mv house has been standing for a long time." The Commissioners to-day wrote to Mr. Adams that "under a decision of the court the builder of a brick house has the right to remove a sufficient Pa't ?n abutting frame building to place his wall hnlf over the party line, on condition that he makes good all incidental damages to the frame structure." THE MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE BBIDOE. Recently, at the request of Maj. Raymond, Messrs. O. W. G. Ferris A Co.. bridge engi neers, of Pittsburg, examined the new bridge constructed over Rock creek by owners of property along the line of the Massachusetts avenue extension. This is a private struc ture, and as it has been announced was intended only as a temporary bridge. A bill is now pending in Congress to appropriate SluO.OOO to build a bridge at Massachusetts avenue. The examination referred to was | made because citizens interested had in timated a desire to turn the bridge over to ^ the District, at the same time dedi eating its approaches to the public use The Commissioners will not, Maj. Raymond said to-day, accept a bridge or otLer structure until satisfied as to its security. In order to be informed on the subject Pittsburg experts were asked for their opinion These experts report that the sec tion of the end-panel top chord should be 14.13 square inches, while the contractor has put in but 12.70. Thev say that the com pression members, such as the i'h<inix column used m this structure, have long since received the general disapproval of American engineers, the principal objection to sui-h construction being its inaccessibility for inspection, cleaning and painting. The finish or the bridge, they bel eve, is much below what it should be for a structure in this local ity, and not equal to that required for railway structures. They say "the specifications for the structure have not been com plied with in regard to the proportioning of the principal columns. While the bridge ia perfectly safe for ordinary traffic, they would recommend, in the face of the several defect? which they mention, that the District purchase the structure. There is a question at the Dis trict buildings how far the Commissioners and building inspector have authoritv over a bridge erected as the one in question "has been erected, entirely on private property. Under the old regulations '-bridges" were especially named as among structures coming under the regulations. The word was struck out in the revision made bv Col Ludlow. Building Inspector Eutwisle "thinks the Commissioners would have power to close the approaches to an unsafe bridge. ?,,ca8e the Aqueduct bridge Col. Ludlow condemned and closed it. This action led to a settlement between the bridge owners and the government, and the erection of the free bridge. THE NATLOB ROAD. Dr. Tindall, the secretary of the District Commissioners, has written to Mr. 8 M Gol den in relation to his request to have Navlor road included in the schedule of roads for'im provement next year, "that *3.000 or #4.000 would put it in fair condition, but that it is too late for the Commissioners to submit an esti mate for it and the only way to get it before Congress is for you to present it to the Senate committee on appropriations, which is now 4|e District appropriation bill for 18JO. Capt. Symons, in reporting on Mr. Gol den s letter, say* the Navlor road will be of great importance as soon as the bridee across the Eastern branch of Pennsylvania avenue is completed.

Symons Say* flat* Made Rcfore Its Passage Are Not Affected by it. Referring to the controversy about subdi visions. Capt. Symons said to a Star reporter to-day that be desired to correct anv impression that might have been made that his recent ac tion or the action of the Commissioners or the opinion of Attorney Riddle had anything what ever to do with subdivision* made and platted and recorded before the law.of last August re quiring all future subdivisions to be made in conformity with the plan of the city of Wash ington went into effect. ; "It is not intended in anv manner," Mid Capt.

"to disturb these old subdi visions until Congress makes specific laws to ? - r4* The Cll!"'at issue is one in which a subdivision was made, surveved and platted sincethelawof last August went into tffect The subdivision is not in conformity with the plan of the city; it is not even in conformitv with the plan of the adjoining subdivision of ISrooklands.

A Case He fore the U. S. Supreme Court to Test Its Constitutionality. A motion was made in the Supreme Court of the United States to-day by ex-Gov. Hoadley. of Ohio, to advance for argument the case of Chae Chan Ping, appellant, against the United States. The appellant was a Chinese laborer who departed from the United States for China on June 2. 1887. first having secured a return certificate from the collector of the port of fan Francisco as required bylaw. He returned to the Lnited States on October 7, 1888. but Iand WM re,IM?<l the ground that the return certificate had been declared void bv the Scott Chinese exclusion act of Oc tober 1, 1888 Chae Chan Ping then sued out a writ of habeas corpus in the United (States circuit court, which being refused an appeal was taken to this court It is contended in his behalf that the Scott act declaring the return certificates void is unconstitutional and an ab rogation of vested rights. It is sought to have the case sdvanced for hearing on the ground that it is one of great importance, in vo ving thousands of certificates, many of the holders of which have considerable propertv interests in the United States, and that a clelav in the determination of the case would result in great injury to the persons affected.
