JOHNSON TO RETIRE. Harry S. New of Indiana Will Suc ceed Him. William M. Johnson, first assistant post master general, lias arranged with Post master General Payne and President Roose velt to relinquish his office some time in April. It is understood ("apt. Henry S. New of Indianapolis, who was offered the post about two weeks ago, will be his suc cessor. Mr. Johnson's retirement from the department Is due to the remonstrances of his physicians that he cannot undertake the heavy duties incident to his present po sition during the summer months. After resting during the summer Mr. Johnson will resume the practice of law. He was appointed first assistant postmas ter general on (Jen. Heath's retirement in 1!KH(. and has now served almost two years. Before that time his public service had been limited to six years In the New Jersey state senate, of which body he was presi ident during his second term, and to tem porary service as acting governor of New Jersey while Gov. Foster M. Voorhees was abroad in I'.mm. His personal interests are very large. It is an open secret that his service in the- Post Office Department in volved a marked pecuniary loss, and it is generally believed that the temptation to re-enter active business life has had almost equal weight with the question of his health in moving him to retire. Mr. Johnson's position in New Jersey politics is regarded as particularly en viable. About two years ago he presented to Hackensack a public library worth The ability wi'.h which he presided in the state senate made him one of tlie most prominent men in the republican party of the state. During the recent con test over the election of a United States senator his name was frequently men tioned, but was not formally presented to the legislature, in view of Mr. Johnson's decided refusal to enter the campaign and his ardent support of former Attorney General Griggs. In anticipation of his re tirement from the pe>stal service many New Jersey newspapers and prominent pol iticians have Indicated him as the most probable candidate of his party for the gubernatorial chair. That contest is still three years distant, howe ver, and Mr. John son refused to discuss the matter this morning. As both Senators Kean and Dry den are from the southern part of the state it is believed to be Mr. Jejhnson's opinion that the next governor, should be chosen from the northern part. On perceiving that Mr. Johnson was in very delicate he-altli last summer Postmas ter General Smith prevailed on him to rest during the three hot months, and the first assistant's chair was filled by a subordi nate all that time. The past winter has In creased very largely the work of the first assistant, and Mr. Johnson has felt that he could not intrust it to any one else. His physicians would not hear to having him remain at his desk all summer. The only CQur?e open, therefore, was to resign, and Mr. Johnson communicated to his superiors his eletermination to do so about two weeks ago. The re-slgnation has not yet been submitted. An understanding prevails, however, that the President and Mr. Payne will have found a successor by the middle of April, anel that Mr. Johnson can retire before May 1. Capt. New is widely known as the editor and proprietor of the Indianapolis Journal and a member of the republican national committee. His military title was obtained by service at Jacksonville, Fla.. during the war with Spain, when he held the position of assistant adjutant general. He is about forty-two years old. When Gen. Alger re tired from the War Department Capt. New was strongly urged for appointment as Secretary of War. The only public office he has held is that of a member of the In diana state senate. Deputy Marshal's Suggestions. J. S Lacey, deputy United States mar shal in charge e?f the prisoners in the United States braneh of the Police Court, has addressed a communication to Aulick Palmer, United States marshal of the Dis trict of Columbia, in which he calls atten tion to the state of affairs in regard to the toilet facilities for men at the Po'.ic>e Court and suggests that a remedy be provided. Mr. Lacey makes a recommendation that a public toilet room be constructed in the basement of the building, the cost of which would be slight, and the one now in use be painted, cleansed and secured by a lock for th'* use of jurors and court officials. In closing it is suggested that the pris oner's dock be moved to the east and be joined to the wall, which would leave a passageway for witnesses at the west end between the court railing and the dock, making a straight course from the witness rooms, located outside of the court room.

Did Not Engage in Heated Discussion With Ex-Mayor Phelan. Mr. Wu, the Chinese minister, desires to correct certain statements in published re ports regarding a discussion between for mer Mayor Phelan of San Francisco and himself regarding the Chinese question. The minister declares there was no heated discussion between Mr. Phelan and himself, as stated, but simply a friendly exchange of views. The minister says he did not utter any threat that China would adopt a retaliatory measure in the event of the passage by Congress of a stringent law against the Chinese. Far from advising re taliation, the minister says he would be pained to see any such step taken by China, as his constant aim and purpose has been and will be to foster and preserve friendly relations between the two coun tries. In this connection the minister's attention was called to published reports that leading Chinese merchants of the country are planning a concerted movement to petition the Chinese government for some form of retaliation to meet the legislation proposed by the bill pending in Congress. The min ister asserted, however, that he was not aware that any such step was contem plated. Such a movement, however, might be under way without his knowledge, and those at its head might send their appeal directly to the Chinese government with out seeking the intervention of the lega tion here.

Ducretet, repeating the experiments of Bourbouze made in 1876 has lately endeav ored, with success, to transmit human speech through ordinary telephones, using the earth as the only conductor. The re sults are very interesting, though diffi cult to explain. One Ihing is certain, says the experimenter, namely that earth filters out, so to say, the continuous current nec essary to the operation of the apparatus. This current is diffused into many others capable of actuating a certain number of telephones distributed around the trans mitter, and in the experiments cited tnese diffused currents were strong enough to operate a relay with a call belL FINANCIAL.

A life of happiness and usefulness was cut short in young womanhood In the death of Mrs. Archer C. Gibbons, which occurred at the Hotel Johnson last night. Mrs. Gib bons, who was Miss Lillian Garrabrant. and well known in the fashionable socle', y of her home, Orange, N. J., was married Jan uary 15. With bright prospects she and her husband started on a wedding tour through the south. Mrs. Gibbons eauglit a severe cold on the trip and it was deemed best to return to their home. When Wash ington was reached her condition was such as to make it advisable to remain until she could improve. Pneumonia developed, and she gradually grew worse. Her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius Garra brant of Orange, were summoned, and they were with her when she died, as was also the father of Mr. Gibbons. The body was taken to her home this afternoon. Mr. Gibbons is a prominent business man of Orange. Hotel Arrivals. Ebbitt?A W. Bash, George H. Lindsey, New York; A. M.
