been acting as his father's private secretary,
has resigned in order to continue his studies
preparatory to entering Harvard college.
Richabd E. Sloan has been appointed aeso- I
ciate justice of the supreme court of Arizona.
Indians Must Not Slaughter Deer fob
Theib Hides.?The Secretary of the Interior
has directed that the the Indians in south
western Colorado be prevented from slaughter
ing the deer for the hides only. The treaty
provision which allows these Indians to hunt,
the Secretary holds, does not give them the
right to kill game necessary to supply their
need as a tribe.
The Cruiser Baltimore has been placed In
dry dock at Philadelphia and is being cleaned
and painted preparatory to another official
trial.
Increased Postal Receipts.?During the |
quarter ended September 30,1889, there was an
increase of 5.1 per cent in the gross receipts of
the Washington city post office. A statement
prepared at the Post Office department shows
that the groBs receipts at thirty or the larger
post offices in the country during the name
period had increased 9.6 per cent as compared
with the corresponding quarter of last year.
Amos Cummings as Cox's Successor.?Amos
J. Cummings was nominated by the Tammany
Hall convention of the ninth New York district
last night to fill the vacancy caused bv the
death of Congressman S. 8. Cox. The nomina
tion was received with great enthusiasm, and
Mr. Cummingtf replied in a forcible speech ac
oepting the nomination.
I Secretary Noble spent yesterday at Hagers
town. Md., and was at bis desk this morning.
Representative Perkins of Kansas bad a long
interview with the Secretary and there was a
large number of other callers who occupied the
chairs in Private Secretary Pope's room wait
ing their turn. Mr. Pope wag formerly a stu
dent in Secretary Noble's law office in St.
Louis, and as be is familiar with the Secretary's
mode of working he is able to render him valu
able assistance.
Virginia Postmastebs.?Nannie C. Goudy
has been appointed postmaster at Ca Ira, Cum
| berland county; 8. B. Giun at Glen Allen, Hen
rico county, and Jno. B. Rodgers at Richards
ville, Culpeper county.
Naval Orders.?Lieut A. F. Fechkler has
been ordered to duty in the bureau of naviga
tion; Chief Engineer Geo. H. White has been
ordered to special duty in connection with the
machinery of the Brooklyn.
Alleged Counterfeiters Arrested.?The
chief of the secret service is informed by Agent
Brooks of the New York district that he arrested j
Michael Ladykier for passing counterfeit Rus
Hian bank notes in New York city; also by Agent
Shnw from Leavenworth. Kan., that he arrested
Alice Jt-fferies for passing counterfeit ?10
Cuited States Treasury notes. Jefferies is a no
torious woman of the town and for a long time
has been suspected of dealing in counterfeit
money.
Not a Citizen.?The announcement that
Prof. Francis R. Fava, son of Baron de Fava,
had been naturalized as an American citizen
was erroneous. Mr. Fava Bays that, having
resided only two years in this country, hecoulc
not, under the law, become a citizen.
The Appointment is Legal.?Solicitor Gen
eral Chapman has decided a question referred
to him by the civil service commission and
holds that the appointment of a railway mail
clerk was Legal whose appointment was ap
proved bv the Postmaster General prior to May
1. when the service was placed under the civil
service rules, although he did not take the
oath of office until after that date. The solici
tor general is of the opinion that the appoint
ment was complete before May I, and the fact
that the appointee did not take the oath of
office until alter May 1 is immaterial upon the
question of his right to hold the office.
Personal.?Ex-President Hayes dined with
George W. Child* at his country seat, Wootten,

MAHONE AND THE NEGROES.
A Talk With Senator Barbour on the |
Virginia Campaign.
A Stab reporter asked Senator Barbonr to- !
day what be thought of the condition of the
Virginia campaign.
"Our people, (the democrat*,) aeem to be
pretty well satisfied," he replied. "1 can't say i
who ia going to be the governor, bnt we feel
very confident."
"Do yon think the attitude of Mr. Langs ton ia |
going to injure Mahone?"
"Oh, I can't tell about that It may and it I
may not. About Petersburg I think it may
amount to considerable, but it may not amount I
to so much in the state generally. Mr. Mahone j
is counting on the negroes voting for the re
publican party, regardless of their feeling i
to him personally and of the manner in which
he treats them. Of cou&e, he may make a |
miscalculation, but you can't tell. It may be
that the negroes will simply bleed Mr. Mahone
and Mr. Quay."
"Is Mahone going to gain white votes by re- I
pudiating the negro?"
"No, I do not think he will accomplish any
thing worth while in tbat way. The negroes
are the dominant element io the party, aud
when the party is in control they will be in i
control regardless of Mahone. When be tried !
to fight Langston in Petersburg and put up his
own candidate in the field. Langston got four
votes to every one cast for Mahone's candidate.
In Mahone's own district, aside from those
men he has gathered personally around him,
there are not five hundred white votes."
THE DISTRICT'S NEW ATTORNEY.
A Talk With Him About the Position
to Which he Has Reen Appointed.
A representative of The Stir called upon Mr.
Oeorge Hazelton, the newly appointed attor
ney for the District, this morning and found
that gentleman snugly ensconced in a large
rocking chair in the back parlor of hia cosy
little home on B street.
"How are you pleased with your appoint- |
mcnt?" ventured the reporter aa he drew up a
chair.
"Very much indeed," he replied. "I don't I
know but that I like it better than the com
misssionership. You see the duties are not so
arduous, and then again I don't have to please
every one."
"I see Major Raymond objected to your ap
pointment on account of your lack of knowl
edge of the local laws. What do you say to j
that?"
"Let my work show for itself," replied Mr.
Hazelton. "I go into the office to do my ut
most to subserve the best interests of the Die- |
trict. As far as my not being familiar with the
complex laws of the District is concerned I
have no doubt but that Congress will have them
codified at its next session."
"How about your assistants? Do you expect |
to make many changes in the present force?"
asked the reporter.
"That I can't answer. I will say, however.
that my assistant* will be chosen with care and
will all be republicans."
"I see," remarked the reporter, "that some
of the papers charge that tho Commissioners j
in making your appointment were influenced
by a District ring.
"Thert is not a word of truth in the charge.'
"Do you think you can be of use to the Com- j
missioiiers in Congress on account of your
former relations with that body?" continued
the scribe.

WHY STOLTENBFRG WAS ARREPTF.D.
Chicago, Oct. 18.?The morning papers give
the following as the real reason of Henry Stolt
enberg's arrest: Last June Stoltenberg went
to a friend?Wm, O. Dahl. a young man em
ployed by a firm of grocers on Madison street?
and asked permission to have certain mail that
he #as expecting come addressed to him (Dahl).
Stoltenberg explained that it was a little mat
ter that he wanted to keep quiet. Dahl con
sented. The first letter came the latter part of
July and was post marked Toronto, Canada.
The facts brought to light connecting the name
of Stoltenberg's employer with certain
individuals in Toronto excited Dahl's suspi
cions. He said nothing, however, until a sec
ond letter arrived some time later. Then be
took one of his employers into his confidence
and told him the facts. His employer advised
him to take the letter to the state s attorney.
Dahl did not do so, but refused to receive any
more letters. The matter, however, weighed
upon Dahl's mind and last Wednesday night he
came to the state's attorney with the story as
above stated. Stoltenberg was at once arrested
and brought to the state's attorney's office. He
was put through a rigid examination by the at
torneys for the prosecution, culminating with
the Dahl episode. Stoltenberg denied that he
had received letters through Dahl, and when
confronted by Dahl and his employer refused
to talk.

The occasion for tbe pr? sent special activity

menced this morning before Coroner Shultx.
Mr. Humstone. superintendent of tbe Westeru
Uuion telegraph company, and three Western
Union linemen testified regardiug tbe position.
4c..of Western Union wires on the fatal pole. J.
W. Harrow, foremuu of the gang in which Feeks
worked, testified that he instructed Feeka to
take down the dead wires on the fatal
pole, and that he told Feeks that he
need not be afraid of an electric light wire as
there were none in that vicinity. Witness
further said: *T 11 my opinion Feeks' face was
touching a dead wir* which may have Ix-ea
grounded, and his feet were ou a Western
Union or telephone wire. Since the accident 1
have made a thorough investigation to learn
whether the dead Western I'niou wire* crossed
an electric light wire or motor wire. The wire,
however, on which Feeks' face rested was in a
condition which made it dittn-ult to trace it, it
having been cut in taking down the body.
The coroner instructed Harrow to make a
further investigation of the wire and ascertaia
whether it was grounded at any point along
the line.
Other witnesses agreed with Darrow that th*
fatal wire was crossed with an electric light
wire.
