THE ADJUTANT-GENERALSHIP.
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,

Patrick, Francis R. Shunk, Eugene W. Tan C.
Lucas, and Second-Lieut. Thos. H. Bees, judge
advocate, all of the engineer corps.

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.

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

Paris. May 27. ?In response to a communi

pany with Emperor William before his return
to Home. Count Meoabrea. Italian ambassador
to Francc. has assured M. Spuller. minister of

plated such a visit. Notwithstanding tho
denial of Count Meoabrea that King Humbert
had inU nded to viMt Strasburg it ?* riimon d
here that he had prepared to accompany f m

in deference to an appealing telegram from

All the mortimg papers believe that Kin^

especiallv among the Italiau patriot*, against
