The President Hears a Delegation in Favor of Mr. Thoraaa Somerville. The name of Mr. Thomaj Homerville for District Commissioner wu presented to Presi dent Harrison to-day. A delegation consisting of M. M. Parker, Gen. A. J. Cresweil, Henry A. Willard. E. Kurtz Johnson, Louis D. Wine, CoL Geo. Truesdell, Oeo. Qibson snd C. B. Church, called on the President a little after 11 o'clock. He received them most cordially, recognising some among them with whom he was personally acquainted, and gave them more time than it is his custom to devote to delegations. They presented the name of Mr. Somerville, as a citizen of the District, whose appointment would be in the interest of the community and would give most general satisfaction. In his support they left with the President petitions signed by representative men in nearly every branch of business and in the various sections of the city. Mr. Parker acted as spokesman, and the President was very attentive to all that was I said. The President said that of course it was not a matter that he could settle there on the mo ment. bat that they could be assured he would give their petition every consideration. The I interview was very satisfactory._ At the Post-Ofliee Department. ASSISTANT POSTMASTF.R-OENEHAI. CLARKSON SWORN IK?VIRGINIA AND MARYLAND DELEGA TIONS. Mr. Clarkson, the newly-confirmed first as sistant postmaster-general, arrived at the de partment shortly before 12 O'clock to-day. He was received by CoL Stevenson, and the oath was administered to him by Judge Lawrenson. He was then introduced to the em ployes of the office, and about 1 o'clock he went out with CoL Stevenson for lunch. He had, however, received a large number of visi tors. and seemed to divide with the Postmaster General the stream of visitors that poured into the department up to noon. Two large delegations from Virginia and Maryland arrived about the same time, and as they filed into the room of the Postmaster General some one estimated that were at least 100 in the two delegations. John 8. Wise headed the Virginia delegation, and after ? brief inter view they withdrew. Age and Weight of Cavalrymen. GENERAL SCHCFIELD'S CIRCULAR AS TO THE AOE AND WRIGHT OF RECRUITS. General Bchofield has issued a circular to the army announcing that the maximum age for cavalry recruits upon original enlistment is fixed at thirty years; also that the standard of minimum weight for cavalry recruits estab lished in June, 1887. is abolished, and that hereafter enlistments in that service may be made without regard to a minimum weight, pro.-ided the chest measurement and chest mobility are satisfactory. About two years ago the weight requirement was established, but the practice has demonstrated that It is of no value as a test of the qualifications of recruits. It has been found that men of comparatively light weight, when properly proportioned, are as efficient and capable cavalrymen as heavy men. This action on the part of the major-general com manding was taken upon the recommendation of Burgeon Greenleaf. Naval Orders.?Lieut. A. M. Knight. En sign G. T. Hawk, and Naval Cadet W. 8. Burke, ordered to the Chicago; Lieut Karl Rohrer, de tached from the torpedo station, Newport, and ordered to the Chicago; Assistant Engineer C. W. Dyson, ordered to the Mare Island naiy- i yard. _ Appointment of a Post Trader.?Upon the recommendation of a council of administration David Bourke has been appointed post trader at Marine Barracks. Norfolk. Va. Charge or Violatjno the Pension Laws.? | The commissioner of pensions has been advised that Horace House, of Tyrone. N. Y., has been arrested in New York and remanded to Mil wauke, Wis., upon the order of Judge Coze. United States district court for northern dis trict of New York, on charge of violating the provisions of section 4746. Revised Statutes. United States, in respect to a claim for pension. Gen. Busset, who has been nominated as assistant secretary of the Interior, was at the department to-day in consultation with Judge Hawkins. He is ready to be sworn in as soon as he is confirmed. Gen. Bussev is fifty-five vears of age, but has a most youthful appear ance. His hair is jet black and his whiskers show here and there a gray hair. He is of rather slender figure and has a quick, decided manner. Changes in the Pat Corps of the Navy.? The following changes in the pay corps of the navy have been ordered; Pay-Director A. J. Pritchard ordered to duty in charge of the pay office, Baltimore, April 4, relieving Pav-Di rector Jas D. Murray, detached, ordered to settle accounts and await orders; Pay-Director H M. Denniston ordered to the naval asylum. Philadelphia, March 20, relieving Passed As sistant Pavmaster L. C. Kean. detached, and ordered to'dnty at the New London naval sta tion.

Cowie ordered to duty as general storekeeper at the Newport torpedo station. April L Mr. Evarts and His Wines.?Senator Evarts has a world-wide reputation as a lawyer, and as a legislator he is credited with being remarka bly able, while, as a humorist, he bids fair to become a rival to such eminent wits as Bill Nye and Eugene Field. The senior Senator from New York was talking on the floor of the Sen ate with Senators Edmunds and Palmer, and the Vermonter. looking oritically at the appar ently frail physical representative of the Em ! pire state, said; "I don't see, Evarts, how you ' stand all this hsrd work and the endless round of social duties. Why. it must be a terrible strain upon vou simply to drink the different kinds of wine yon get at the various houses you go to." "The different kinds of wine I drink," replied Mr. Evarts, the ghost of a smile on his features, *-oause me but little concern lo long as they are good. It's the indifferent kinds that upset my digestion." Then Senator Palmer said, ' Let's go down stairs and draw a cork." Confirmed.?The nomination of John 8. Clarkson to be first assistant postmaster-general has been confirmed by the Senate. Minister Hubbard ok the Late Rear-Ad kiraa Chandler.?Mr. Hubbard, the U. 8. minister to Japan, in referring officially to the death of Rear-Admiral Chandler says that his knowledge of the character of the admiral and the ability and prudence with which he dis charged his duties as commanding officer of the Asiatic station, warrants him in saving that in the death of the admiral the naval service of the country has sustained a great loss. As commander-in-chief of the station he was uni versally admired, end as an individual he made friends of nearly all with whom he came in con tact The Sags of the legation and the flags of the consulates and men of war of all national ity at Yokohama were placed at half mast in respect to his memory. Verdict for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company.?In Circuit Court No. 2, Judge Montgomery, this morning, the case of Robert Bantum against the Baltimore and Ohio railroad company was riven to the Jury?Messrs. R. R. Beall and Meyer Lewin for the complain ant and Messrs. Geo. E. Hamilton and M. J. Colbert for the defendant The complainant alleges that be purchased a round-trip ticket from Hyattsville to this city, and on his return wae ejected from the train at Highlands, sub jecting him to walking home in the night to humiliation, Ac., and claimed *5.000 damages. The defense was that the plaintiff had a ticket to Highlands only; that he was awakened there and told to gat off, and that no foroe was used. The Jury, after an abeenee of two hours, found a verdict for the defendant Hon. John H. Pope, Canadian minister tif railways and canals, is dying. William H.

Caucus of Republican Senators. THE TWO SUBJECTS WHICH WEBK UNDER CONSID ERATION- VESTEBDAT. Republican senators, in caucus yesterday afternoon, argued for a long time over two questions in which the public is not overmuch interested. One was: 8hall the president pro tempore of the Senate, while the Vice-President lives, be elected at each daily session of the Senate, or is one election sufficient to make his title good throughout an entire Congress? On this ques tion there was considerable disagreement and noaenaito conclusion was arrived at The other question under discussion was the debate on the Hoar southern-outrage resolu tion. Several senators thought that Mr. Coke's speech ought to be answered now, and they ex pressed themselves as not only ready but anxious to do it. The caucus, however, came to no decision on the matter and it may be that another caucus will take the subject ; up on Monday and decide them. Wants $20,000 for False Arrest. THE SUIT OF WM.
