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

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.

by Mr. 0>ckrell. who stated the principle of it
to be that whenever the Treasury records show
that a sum of money is due to anv claimant
(soldier or civilian) it shall be adjudicated and
paid without regard to time.
Mr. Edmunds objected to its immediate con

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.
Mr. Wilson (Iowa) defended and advocated
the House bill and stated the history of the
case.
THE BILL PASSED.
Without further discussion, and without divi
sion or amendment, the bill was passed,
RAILWAY MAIL SERVICE EMPLOYES.

Mr Stfuble (Iowa) called up the bill increas
ing the pension of Mrs. Ward B. Burnett, but
the House refused-ye;is, 80; nays, 116?to con

THE ARMY APPROPRIATION BILL.
The House then went into committeee of the
whole. Mr. Dockery (Mo.) in the chAir, on the
army appropriation bill.
The pending question was on the point of
order raised bv Mr. Randall (Penna.) against
tho clause appropriating *500,000 for the pur
chase of movable submarine torpedoes After
debate the chair sustained the point of order
on tho ground that the item for torpedoes
belonged to the fortification bilL The clause

Mr. Cutcheon (Mich.) attempted to bring
the clause within the rules by offering it as an
amendment, so i?gktied as to provide that the
torpedo? shall bofjierated bv the engineer
corps ol the ?rmv aFpoints ou navigable water*
and at the entrances of harbors where there
are no fortifications.
But this was of no avail, and the amendment

the whole Senate would desire to join in pay
ing to this very excellent, faithful and honored

deserves."

Billings. Most.. Feb. 8.?A United States
deputy marshal, acting under the orders of
Indian Agent Briscoe, yesterday went to the
Crow reservation and arrested liarnej Brave, a
'?squaw man," and arraigned him before
United States Commissioner Bates. The
i squaw men were ordered by Briscoe to leave
the reservation because, as he interprets the
law, they have no right to a residence there.
Thev all" refused to leave and Brave was se
lected as a fitting subject for a test case. He
! has lived on the reservation twenty-five years,
I and sixteen years ago married a squaw. He
j has lived peaceably and quietly, and hold* a

tor hearing on February 18, and excites much
interest. Briscoe succeeded Agent Williams

to raise the question of the right of squaw-men
to reside on the reservation. The Inuiaus are
wrought up over his arrest, and the indications
are that the action of Agent Briscoe will pre

created a decided sensation here, where Belle
Boyd has been well known since her girlhood.
She was born at Martinsburg. Berkeley county,

fantry, commenting in severe terms upon the
German paaaport regulations. The Journal
d?* IteOat* says there can be only one opinion
of the action of the German officials in the
matter, and that ia that the? failed to ahow any
humanity. It also says: "Even a portion of
the German preaa haa condemned the frontier
regulations. bnt it ia impoaaible to allow a
colonel of the French arrnv to discuss auch a
matter in an order of the Aay. It is important
that Col. Senart should not be allowed to estab

MAKING BEACH Ol'T A LIAR.
He did not Talk with Kg an and SullU
van in Milwaukee in March, 1K83.
Mil w ArKVF.. Feb. 8.?A dispatch from Lon
don yesterday morning contained a statement
by Beach, the witness of the Tones against
I'arnell. to the effect that on March 8, 18H3, he
had neon Messrs. Egan and Sullivan in Mil
waukee and conversed with them about the
I revolutionary plans of the Irish national league.
I Joseph G. Donnelly, the register of probate in
thix city, on the day mentioned waa a member
of the committee which had charge of the
meeting at the academy, addressed by Messrs.
Sullivan and Eg*n and which met them at th?
depot and entertained them during the eveu
ing.
"The statement is absolutely false," Mr.
Ponnellr said. "Messrs. Sullivan and Egau
arrived Wre promptly at 8 o'clock, and w?
conducted them from the depot directly to the
academy. The committee waa composed of
well-known citizens of Milwaukee. I sat on
the platform all during the evening conversing
with both guests, but there was no Major
Beach among us. From the academy we all
proceeded to the Plankinton house, where we
remained until 3 o'clock in the morning. We
accompanied Messrs. Egan and Sullivan to the
depot and saw them de|>art for Chicago. No
man named Beach was with them. Not a tin
gle allusion was made to anything of a revolu
tionary character. Many respected Irish
citizens will testify to the same. Major Beach's
story is a lie."
