How the Situation In the House 1* Affected by Mr. Laird's Demise. The death of Congressman Laird leaves the relative positions of the two parties in the the House just what it was after the election. The democrats were first to lose a man by death?Gay of Louisiana. The death of Laird takes off a republican. Out of this situation the chances seem better for the republicans to gain a vote. It is conceded that there is no hope for the democrats to elect a man to suc ceed Laird; whereas, on the other hand, the district Mr. Gay's death left vacant is probably naturally republican. It is gen erally understood that Mr. Gay was en abled to carry it because of his being a protectionist and having plenty of money, which he was free to spend. To hold this sarao influence in operation Mr. Gay's son-in-law has been nominated by the democrats, but whether they can elect him is a question. Miner, the republican nominee, is said to be strong and all efforts possible will be made to elect him. The republicans claim that all that is necessary for them to carry the district is to have a fair count of the votes. THE RIVER FRONT IMPROVEMENT. Col. Halns Reports the Progress of Operations on the "Flats-" The monthly report of operations on the river front improvement for July submitted to tho chief of engineers by Lieut. CoL P. C. Hains shows that the expenditures during the month were *15,289.82. The work of constructing the tidal reservoir outlet was continued. At the close of the month the material had been ex cavated from the last of the wing-wall coffer dams and part of the concrete foundation for the other down-stream wing wall had been put in place. Dredging operations were continued under contract with the California hydraulio dredging and reclamation company. About 95,000 cubic yards of material was excavated from the Washington channel and j deposited on the lower end of section 3. Un-) der contract with Henry Wilson about 4.000 cubic yards of material were dredged and placed in the embankment. In execution of the pro ject aimed at there has been dredged a channel 350 to 550 feet wide and 20 feet deep between Georgetown and Giesboro point. This chan nel has filled up to about 14 feet on the up stream side of Long bridge. The Wash ington chaunel has been dredged to a width of 350 feet and 20 feet deep, but by the freshet of Juno 2, 1889, this depth was decreased to about 19 feet. All the material is being depos ited on the flats, and up to the present time about 620 acres have been reclaimed from the ; overflow at ordinary high tide. Of the 12,000. 000 cubic yards required to till the flats up to the required height there lias now been depos ited on them about 7,713,000 cubic yards. EXTENDING THE RL'LES. The Civil Service Commission to Take In More of tho Departmental Service. Before the President left the city Saturday he had a conference with Civil Service Com missioners Lyman and Thompson. It is under stood that certain changes in tho rules were submitted to the President for his considera tion, and it is stated that an official announce ment will soon be made. One of the import ant changes proposed, it is said, is an amend ment of the present rules so as to require an examination before an appointment can be made of chief of division in the departmental service. Under the present rules chiefs of di visions while in the classified service are ex empted from examination and can be appointed without being certified by the commissioner.^ If this change should be made it would the civil service rules over nearlv the entire governmental service and would be the last extension of any importance that could be made to the operation of the civil service law. The following are the exceptions under the present rules from examination in the classified departmental service: One private secretary or one confidential clerk of the head of each classified department and of each assistant sec retary. and also of each head of bureau appointed by the President by and with the advice and consent of the Senate; d rect custo dians of money for whose fidelity another officer is under official bond, but this exception does not include any officer below the grade of assistant cashier or assistant teller; disbursing officers who give bond; persons employed exclusively in the secret service of the govern ment; chief clerks and chief of divisions. A number of additional places are also spe cifically excepted from examinations in the various departments. THE ZOOLOGICAL PARK. Difficulties Met by the Surveyors In Going Over the Grouud. The surveyors at work on the zoological park grounds find they have about as troublesome a bit of surveying to do as could well be imagined. The irregularity of outline and curious lines of holdings have given them much trouble, but they are making a very accurate survey and ex- | pect to be through in three or four weeks. Mr. J Hornaday says that the more he goes over the ; ground the better satisfied he is with it. He is studying the lay of the ground and laying out the park on paper, and as he divides it into sections for the various animals he is delighted to see how readily each species may be provided with a home suited to its nature. No advancement with the work, however, can be made until the surveys are completed. THREE AMERICAS EXPOSITION. Another Governor and Commercial Body Jolu the Patriotic Procession. The following letter was received at the headquarters of tho board of promotion today: Tebkitout or Idaho, Executive Department, Department or the Interior, Boise City, Idaho, Aug. 14, 1889. Mr. Alex. D. Asdeeso*. Secretary National Board of Promotion, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge tho receipt of your letter of July 22 inviting my co-operation in the promotion of the Three Americas exposition at the national capital in 1892 in honor of the discovery of America by Columbus. I accept the appointment so kindly tendered and will me my best efforts to nsaist in making the exposition in every way a success. 1 am fearful, however, that my official duties will deprive me of the pleasure of meeting you in Washington in October. I will be in Wash ington for a few days in the early part of Sep tember. I a in, with great respect, your obedient serv ant, Geo. L. Shocp, Governor. Notice was also received of the appointment by the Nashville commercial club of the follow- j ing committee to co-operate with the board of promotion: Lewis T. Baxter, president; Charles Sykes. secretary; W. ?. Metzger, A. E. Baird and J. M. Williams. A New Test for the Charleston. The new crit cruiser Charleston was given a trial run in San Francisco bay Saturday after noon. No government officials were aboard and the trial was simply to test some altera tions which had been made in her machinery since the official test trip three months ago. There was no attempt to develop maximum horse power or high rate of speed. It is un derstood the builders consider the trial satis factory. The President at Deer Park. The President, Mrs. Harrison and Private Secretary Halford reached Deer Park at 10 o'clock Saturday night. On the way there they were joined by Mr. John B. Elam, Mr. Harri son's junior law partner, and Attorney General Miller arrived at Deer Park Sunday morning. The President, in company with Senator Davis, attended religious services at the chapel, bnt Mrs. Harrison was too fatigued to attend. The President expects to leave for Indianapolis at ?JO Wednesday morning. ' Telegrams to The Star. 0 NINE BURNED TO DEATH. Terrible Results of a Tenement House Fire.

A GUEST OF GEN. MAHONE. Senator Quay's Sou Looking Over Af fairs iu Virginia. Spocisl Dispatch to the KvtM.NO Stah. Petehsbubg, Va., Aug. la.? The train from the west Saturday night nail among it* passen gers Gen. Mahone, his son Butler, and B. K. Quay, a son of Hon. M. S. Quay, chairman of the republican national committee. On their arrival here the party were driven to the resi dence of Qen. Mahone, and ou yesterday the general and his visitor were cnlled upon by a number of leading republicans of the Mahone faction of this city, and matters concerning the republican state convention, to be held iu Norfolk on next Thursday, were discussed. Gen. Mahone has been iu southwest Virginia for the past two weeks or more, where he had conferences with some of the most prominent lights of the party w that section of the state. Mr. Quay's visit here at this time is considered very sig nificant, and it is more than probable that the next few day* will bring other prominent northern republicans here, who will attend the state conveutiou at Norfolk. THE CANDIDATES FOB GOVEBNOB. Those wI10 are prominently spoken of as proba ble candidates ou the republican ticket for governor are Gen. Mahone, Hon. Geo. liowen of Campbell county, Col. Joseph P. Minatree of thin city, and ex-Mavor William I.amb of Norfolk. Mr. Bowen has served two terms in Congress, and is a prominent farmer in his sec tion of the state. Col. Minatree is store keeper of the ltichmond and Danville railroad, and during the war was on Gen. Mahoue's staff, wall the rank of colonel. He is a very popular man, and it is said that the position he now holds pays him a salary a* large as that of the governor of the state, which is *5 000. Col. Lamb is said to be a very affable geutleman, and served with much gallantry in the eon federate army, especially at the battle of Fort Fisher. The general impression is that MAHONE WILL NOT ACCEPT THE NOMINATION and that one of the other named gentlemen will be nominated in his place. The friends of Gen. Mahone assert that his nomination would create more enthusiasm in the state than that of any other man who could be nominated, and ^t_ is certain that every effort will be made to induce bim to accept the nomination. SlioulJ Gen. Mahone accept, the political fight in Vir ginia this fall would be one the like of which has never been witnessed in the Old Dominion. The democratic state ticket, headed by Capt. Phil. McKinney of Farmville for governor, is considered a very strong one, and the demo crats are determined to lead it to victory. Capt. McKinney is widely known and deserv inglv popular throughout Virginia, and is a good speaker, and in a few weeks his voice will be heard from the stump iu advocacy of his claims for governor and the success of the democratic ticket.
