He is a relative of the" Grant Uent family and of ex-Commissioner Dent. Capt. Fabquhab, who commanded the ill fated Trenton when she was cast away at Apia, has arrived in Washington.

A Probable Delay In Appointing Gen. Drum's Successor. SECRETARY PROCTOR AGAIN CALLED AWAY BY THE DANOEROUS ILLNESS OF HI8 SON?HOW THE PENDINO CONTEST FOB ADJUTANT-OEN EttAL STANDS?THE ABHES CASE. Secretary Proctor, who returned to the city Saturday afternoon, received a telegram this morning from his home in Vermont, announc ing that his twelve-year-old son is dangerously ill, and the Secretary left at 11 o'clock. The illness of his son was one of the reasons why the Secretary went on to Rutland on his recent trip, but he returned with tlie belief that the patient was convalescent. The sudden newB he received this morning was a great shock to him. His departure at this time may cause a delay in the settlement of several matters now pend ing between the White House and the depart ment. which, it was expected, would be de cided this week. AS TO OEN. DBUM's SUCCESSOR. The most important of these is the selection of an adjutant-general to succeed Qen. Drum, who will to-morrow be placed on the retired list of the army on aocount of age. This mat ter, it is said, is giving the President consider able bother, and there is a rumor to the effect that the influence behind the two leading candi dates, Whipple and Kelton, is so strong that the President, not caring to ignore either by recognizing the other, is going to cut tho Goruian knot by selecting a third man for the place. In this event Col. Chauncev McKeevcr would probably be the appointee, for the only man between himself una tho head of the list, barring the main candidates, is Col. ltobert Williams, who is in such bad health as to put him out of the raco. But this conclusion is not generally expected, and the curreut belief is that either Kelton or Whipple will be selected. A doubt has been expressed of Gen. Sherman's energy in backing Col. Whipple; and if it be well founded that officer's chances are not as bright as they were commonly thought to be. ANOTHEB OF THE FLOATINQ ST0BIES is to the effect that the President has declared that he will not appoint a staff officer to the vacancy in the majorships caused by the chango of adjutants-general, but that the assistant must be selected from the line of the army. In support of this is argued, the strong feeling that is known to exist among western people in favor of the line against the staff, "but on the other hand it seems improbable," said an officer to-day, "that the President would mako such a declaration and establish such a principle, which is practically a warning to all the military cadets at tho academy that if they study so hard and do such good work that they will be put into the staff corps, they will destroy their chances ever afterward for promotion or advancement by transfer from their stuff to another. Thus," continued the officer, "if a cadet graduate into the engineer corps, according to this principle, he will perforce remain an engineer although an opening may como in another corps for which he may be better adapted or in which there is better chances for advancement. In other words, he asserted, it would be putting a premium on indifferent work at the military academy. THE ARME9 CASE. Tho Secretary's absence will also cause another delay in tho already long-pending Amies court-martial case, which has been at the White House for several weeks. It is not probable that the delay is occasioned by a de sire on the part of the President to return the cage to the court, but rather that he has not had an opportunity to go over it with the Sec retary. THE CITY POSTMASTERSHIP. Speculations as to a Change?The Post master-General and Mr. Smith. Mr. Frank H. Smith was at tho Post-Offico department to-day. His visit had some signifi cance from the fact that his name has been mentioned in connection with the city post mastership. While waiting to see the Post mattter-Uuieral, Mr. Smith,in conversation with a Stab reporter, said that he knew of no reason why he should be singled out to be specially mentioned as THE SUCCESSOR OF MB BOSH. He understood that the l'ostmaster-General had recently asked a Senator if he knew him (Mr. Smith), and he believed that the whole story was based on this incident. Mr. Smith concluded not to wait longer to see Mr. Wana maker, but to return later in the day. He went out into the corridor and passed a group of men who were talking together. One of the roup happened to be Mr. Wanamaker, who ad been stopped on bis way to his office. "Good morning. Mr. Smith'." called out the Postmaster-General, as soon as he saw him. Mr. Smith returned the salutation, and then waited for an opportunity to speak to Mr. Wanamaker. The conversation being some what prolonged, Mr. Smith remarked to tho Postmaster-General that he would return at 2 o'clock. "1 don't think I will be here at that timo," was the reply. Then Mr. Smith concluded to wait, and after the group had dispersed, the Postmaster General came over to where Mr. Smith was standing, and they stood and talked together for some time. THE RUMOR OF A SPEEDY CHANGE in the city postmastership created a good deal of surprise at the Post-Offico department. Mr. ltoss has three years yet to serve, and it is not supposed that there will be any charge for some time yet. One well-informed official said that there would be no change, at least, until the pots-office commission had completed its work. The Postmaster-General left the depart ment early in the day. and would not be seen. Mr. Clarkson. the first assistant, told a Stab re porter that he had heard no talk of auy change in the city post office. A LIVELY CONTEST Over the Appointment of Assistant Chief of the Life-Saving Service. There is quite a contest going on over the appointment of an assistant chief of the life saving service to succeed Mr. O'Connor, whose death left the vacancy. It has always been held that that bureau, upon the efficiency of which the bves of shipwreeked mari ners depetids so much, should be free from politics, and that the theory of pro motion should obtain, so as to havo always men of experience and training in charge of the work. Upon this theory the promotion of Dr. Reed, the chief clerk, has been expected, and it is understood that Secretary Windom looked favorably upon the proposition. This promotion was regarded as a certainty in the office until it was discovered that the chief of the bureau, Mr. Kimball, was urg ing the appointment of Dr. Baker, of the light house bureau. The contest has been waxing warm between the friends of Dr. Keed and the chief of the bureau, who stands out alone for the appointment of Dr. Baker, whose assistance he want* on account of his scholarly attainments. Dr. Beed's friends have urged upon Mr. Kimball and the Secretary that fact that Iteed has been the practical busi ness man of the office, aud has more familiar knowledge of the service than any other person except Mr. Kimball himself. There has been considerable feeling in the matter, and the Secretary has hesitated about going against the wishes of the head of the bureau. It is ex pected to be settled to-day, probably by the appointment of Dr. Baker. Some resignations may follow this appointment. A General Court-Martial has been ordered to meet at WiUet's Point, N. Y.. May 27. The detail ia as follows: Capt. Richard L. Hoxie, First-LieuU. J as. G. Warren, Geo. A. Zinn, Henry C. Newcomb, Second-Lieuts. Mason M. Patrick, Francis R. Shunk, Eugene W. Tan C. Lucas, and Second-Lieut. Thos. H. Bees, judge advocate, all of the engineer corps. Watchman ArPontTRD.?Robert L. Smith, Delaware, has been appointed a Treasury watchman. CIVILIZING THE INDIANS. Making Allotments of Land to Them Under the Severalty Act. The Indian office agent* are baiily engaged in making allotments of land nnder the sever alty act to the members of a nnmber of Indian tribes throughout the west Mr. Belt, the as sistant Indian commissioner, states that only those tribes are selected where a willingness has been expressed to hold the land in this way or when in the appointment of the officials the Indians are sufficiently civilized. At pres ent allotments are being made to the Indians on the Quapaw reservation, in the Indian ter ritory; at the Yankton reservation, in Dakota, and the Nez Perce reservation, in Idaho. The work of allotment has been in progress for some time at Warm Springs and Grand Round reservations, in Oregon. There has been a tem porary suspension^ the work at Warm Springs pending the settlement of the boundary line of that reservation. Secretary Noble has given authority for allotments to be made at Devil Lake's reservation, in Dakota, and at Oneida j reservation, in Wisconsin. UNDER THE TERMS OF THE ALLOTMENT ACT , a patent it issued to the Indians for ICO acres | each, or in case of grazing land twice that quantity. This patent exists for twenty-flvo years when the fee simple of the land is made out to the Indians. When an Indian gets a patent to his land he becomes an American cit izen and entitled to all the privileges of an American citizen. It includes, of course, the important privilege of voting, and the Indian vote has become quite an important factor in Eolitics in the went. Patents to lands have een issued to Indians from time to tjme under treaties, so that with the additions to the num ber recently made under the seAeraltv act THEBE ARE SOME FIFTEEN THOUSAND INDIANS who hold patents to their lands. There are , some 3,000 allotments which have been pre- | pared, but have not as yet been approved. As the work progresses the number of patents in crease with great rapidity, and the time is not ' far distant, it is thought/when Indian reserva- ] tions will be practically unknown. In cases where the Indians on a reservation have all received patents to land, the balance of the land will be purchased by the government under agreement with the Indians. THE NEW CHURCH COUNCIL. Proceedings of the Convention To-day? The Proposed New Washington Church. The platform in the Church of Our Father was prettily decorated with flowers when the gen eral convention of the New church reassembled there this morning. The morning session, which was well attended, was taken up with the reception of reports from associations, so cieties, and general pastors. A report made by the general church of Pennsylvania, caused some discussion. It reported to the general convention among other things the action of that association in enjoining Rev. Louis H. Tafel from preaching within the jurisdiction of that association. Differences arose between Bishop De Naido and Mr. Tafel which led to this action. A motion was made to refer the matter to the council of ministers, but it was finally decided to lay the whole subject on the table. If it had gone to the council of ministers, that body would be under obli gation to look into the merits of the whole case, and. as a Star reporter was informed, if they had decided in favor of Mr. Tufel tliey would" tako no action binding the Pennsylvania association to reinstate him. All that could be done would be to assign him to some other field, and this can be done without further action. THE THEOLOGICAL SCHOOL. The resolution to indorse the proposal of the managers of the theological school to place that institution on a permanent basis at Cam bridge, camo up for discussion, and after speeches were made by Uev. John Worcester. James Reed, Joseph Pettee and Chauncey Giles, Francis A. Dtwson and others, the reso lution was adopted. A building has been purchased near the Howard university buildings and the co-operation of the church is asked to put tbo seminary on a good financial footing. The speakers all regarded the movement as important as the presence of the university would be helpful and the location would afford a most advantageous point troin which to spread the doctrines of the new church. At 12 o'clocft religious services were held and a sermon preached by the Rev. Jolm E. Smith. ? THE WASHINGTON CHCIICH. ? A recess was then taken until 2:30 o'clock, when a missionary conference was opened, and the question "What shall be done for the New church at the national capital'/" was taken up for consideration. The committee appointed by the Washington society to consider the auestion of rebuilding the old temple on Nortn Capitol street, or se lecting a new site in the northwestern section of the city will, by order of tllfc Washington society, report to the convention their conclus ions. This committee is Mr. Job Barnard. Jno. Joy Eilson, Gen. R. D. Mussey. Juo. A. Sibbold. Henry Schooley, Mrs. Flora M. Barnard and Mrs. Sara A. Spencer. They report that they do not deem it advisable to rebuild the temple, ' and recommend the building of a new church on a new site. They ask in the namo of the society the coun sel and co-operation of the New church ( throughout the country. Letters from Rev. Chauncey Giles and Rev. Frank Sewell. the newly-elected pastor of the Washington society (now in Rome,), will be read, indicating the desire that a national New church be erected here. This evening a social mectfbg will be held at the Hamilton house. To-morrow three sessions will be held, and it is expected the business of the convention will be finished. Wednesday the delegates will go to Mount Vernon, where a basket lunch will be provided by the Ladies' Aid association of the , Washington society. ON TRIAL FOR MURDER.

Special Cable Dispatch to The Evtsisa Star London, May 27.?London is talking only of the scandalous mobbing of the Prince and Prin cess of Wales at the fire brigade parade of Sat urday. Tho crowd was perfectly good humored and in it* enthusiasm surged through all obstacles, and almost swamped the royal car riage. A royal duke was hustled, and earls, marquises, and M. P's were buffeted hither and thither. Howard Vincent, commanding the Westminster ritles, undertook to keep order, but arrived too late. His utter failure caused a general growl. The consequences might have easily been serious. Vincent reserves his explanation till to-morrow. The weather has suddenly changed to heavy rain and cold after boiling heat. The country is most lovely, the foliage being richer than usual. The Marquis Dufferin has arrived to receive a presentation from the city for the conquest of Burmah. It is somewhat of a white ele phant. but Dufferin is popular. Hekliemaun, of Troy, is in London.

The Policc Think They Were Concerned in Dr. Cronlii's Murder. ONE 19 ALBEADY UNDER ABBEST?THE NAMES OF THE OTHERS ABE KNOWN, AND TIIEV ARE BEI>'0 LOCATED?THE DOCTOR'S PAPERS TO BE EX AMINED?WHAT JUDGE LONOENECKER SAYS. Chicago, May 27.?The arrest of McGeehan, it is believed, will eventually lead to the arrest of all the participants in the foul crime. Where the prisoner is located could not be learned, but it is believed that he is buried in one of the deepest dungeons under headquarters in the city hall. There were many visits made to that quarter yesterday by police officials and several by Assistant Superintendent Frank Murray, of the Pinkerton force. On one of his visits to the central station Mr. Murray was ac companied by "Bill" Gallagher, whose exten sive acquaintance with all classes and charac ters in i'hiludelphia is well known. WHO THE PRISONER IS SAID TO BE. Certain friends of Dr. Cronin who claim to have been instrumental in bringing about the arrest say that the prisoner is no other than the missing J. D. Simmonds, who rented the rooms at 117 Clark street, opposite to Cronin's office in the Chicago opera house building, pur chased the furniture and trunk at Kevells'. and after keeping them in the rooms for a while, disappeared with all the traps found last week in the Carlson cottage in Lakeview. They further claim that he drove Dr. Cronin away, assisted in the awful struggle which resulted in Cronin's death, aud then aided in disposing of, the doctor's body. There was some mysterious^ telephoning going on between the central sta tion and "Capt. Schaack's hostelry yesterday after the visit of Murray and Gallagher. THBEE MEN IMPLICATED. The detectives are said to be in possession of the real names and actual identities of throe of the men implicated in the assassination. They are the two Williams' and Simonds. They also know that the three men slipped to three different parts of the country, and three of ficers have been sent to locate them, but so far no encouraging reports have been received. There are also under constant detective espion age six or eight people in Chicago. The police profess to know that McGeehan is neither Simmonds nor the man Williams who rented the Carlson cottage, but admit that they know nothing about his being the alleged "Smith" named by Detective Coughlin. There was a rumor last night that a Chicago barkeeper was under arrest, but while the city police denied this they assert that the princi pals and accessories are Chicago people, with not more than two exceptions. All the sus pects will be rounded up for the coroner's in quest. m'geehas fully identifed. It is reported this morning that Peter Mc Geehan has been identified as the occupant of the Clark-street flat and purchaser of the fur niture from Bevells. Neither the police nor the furniture men will talk. If this is correct one-half of the mystery is cleared up, and the only questions to be solved are who were tho other participants and who is behind the gang. DB. CBONIX'S PAPEB8 TO BE EXAMINED. Cbicaoo, May 27.?Judge Longnecker will to day meet II. J. Hvnes and Luther Latiin Mills, and will be shown the incriminating paper* and affidavits left with Mr. Hynes by Dr. Cronin some time ago. On the contents of these documents will depend whether the state's attorney will order the arrest of any per sons so often alluded to by Dr. Cronin's triends as being in the conspiracy 'to assassinate him. The present grand jury will close their labors early this week and the June body will not be impaneled until the second Monday of the month. "It will make no difference," said Judge Longnecker, "whether the grand jury acts or not. Any person against whom there is suffi cient grounds of suspicion can be held to await the action of the grand jury." A reporter this morning visited the ice-house of P. O. Sullivan to inquire what Mr. Sullivan knew about the reported disappearance of Tom Tierney. Mr. Sullivan was not at home, but hiB housekeeper was. She declared that Tom Tierney had not disappeared; ou the contrary he was still working for Sullivan and this morning took out one of the ice wagons. THE STRIKING MINERS.
