Cadet at the Military Academy.?James Charles Read, of Tittsburg. Pa., has been ap pointed a cadet at the military academy. Gen. Hunt's Condition- was unchanged this morning. He had an attack of heart failure at 4 o'clock this morning and another at 5, from which he rallied. The U. 8. 8. Mohican sailed from the Mare Island navy-yard, Cal., yesterday for Panama. Her crew will be discharged there, and she will receive a new crew sent from New York bv a Pacific mail steamer. The Mohican has no further orders than to proceed as far as Panama, but in case an emergency urises she will probably be sent to Samoa. Thin govern ment will be represented at the isthmus by three men-of-war upon the arrival of the Mo hican at Panama, the Atlanta and Ossipeo be ing now afAspipwall. on the Atlantic side. A New Captain of the Watch.?Sergeant Bartholomew Diggins, of tile Metropolitan police force, of this city, was to-dp.y appointed to be captain of the wr.tch of the State. War and Navy building, vice A. C. Paul, removed. This was done by Superintendent Williamson at the direction of the three Secretaries, who con stitute the commission governing the building. The administration of Captain Paul, who was appointed about a year ago, has nev?r been satisfactory to his superiors, and this fact, pointed by an unfortunate incident that oc curred about a week ago, very near to one of the Secretaries, caused his removal. He wns Slven an opportunity to resign, but refused to o so. Sergeant Digging is well known in tho city as a conscientious officer. The position pays $1,200 a year. Secretary Whitney's Christmas Turkeys.? Secretary Whitney to-day mailed a check for t485.10 to the clerk of the Supreme Court of the District, this being the cost of a number turkeys purchased by him for distribution among the employes of the Navy department in 18s<?. The purchase was made at the time of B. Robinson, of this city, but a man named Greenapple. who had charge of the business, owed money to a Arm in Chicago, and the latter garni ^heed the payment before it was made by the Secretary. The case hung in the courts a long time and was recently settled by compromise. The clerk of the court will make the proper distribution. It is interesting to note that while the Navy department haw not in reused in size. Secretary Whitnev's turkey bills have grown from ;4i2 in 1885 to $854 in 1888, more than double. Representative Sowden Calls.?The Presi dent this morning received Representative Sowden, who presented Mrs. Sowden. Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Bryan, of Vincentown. N. J.; John C. Blank and Hirwm Sterner, of Allentown. Pa., and Henry D. Fried and Reuben Fried, of Richlandtown, Pa. The President's Callers. ?

SETTLERS ON THE DES MOINES RIVER LANDS. The Senate then (on motion of Mr. Plumb) proceeded to the consideration of the House bill to quiet title of settlers on the Des Moines river lauds in Iowa. Mr. Evarts made an argument against the bill as contravening the most fundamental prin ciple 01 the security of title; as an innovation on the American system of legislation, and as an attempt to dictate to the Judiciarv?a thing which was intolerable in the proper co-ordi nation of the departments of the government, the bill, he jiaid, had been before Congress for many years, but had passed the two houses only once (last Congress), when it was vetoed by the President in a message, the reasoning of which Mr. Evarts described as brief ana terse, and as presenting precisely the legal and ' constitutional questions involved, and none other. THE ONLY PROPER REMEDY for the settlers was, he said, the bill intro duced by himself in January, 1888, and re ported back adversely from the committee on public lands.
