With tha exception of the Nineteenth and Twentieth wards, the appointees from which have not yet been selected, the list of thirty-six deputies comprises all of the positions which tho new incumbent of tho office will havo at his disposal. Mr. Dlck mann had at first decided to run ids uffieo with thirty-five men, but on mature consid eration he deemed it expedient to Increase this number to thirty-eight. This is eight less than Sheriff I'ohlman has had, but, us Mr. Tohlman admits that he was carrying isC-mo "dead timber" in the form of Mir plus deputies. Mr. Dickmann. at his adilce. cut down tho number. It was tho original intention of Mr. Dick mann to appoint ut !lr.t only twenty-eight deputies, one from each ward, who would perform tho duties with the assistance f a few of the old men. whom he was think ing of retaining until the new men became conversant with tho run of things. In .Ms matter, also, ho n considered his original determination, and helected the tuliro force. HKOIMMCMlUll ll COMMITTCISMKX. In the selection of his appointees, Mr. Dickmann was guided largely by tho rec ommendations ot the committeemen repre senting tho Joiiersoii -Cluo and the City Central Committee In each ward. In llluH of the wards tile committeemen hud r.o trouble in agreeing on a bultablo candidate, but in eight waids. where there were a large number vt applicants, each with po irlul claims to consideration at the hands of tno party, tho committeemen were un it!; to agree on the ting.e appointment ac credited to the ward. .as a. result, a dial lock ensued in hese wurds, and bitter teel log was euger-rc-l, Air. DicKiruuin'. solved the question by announcing that it the re.-pective commit teemen In these wards did not agree upon a man by ti o'clock last night he himself would select a deputy from those wards without regard to the recommendations of the committeemen. This had the desired effect m every ward except the Nlneteenta and Twntlcth. The situation in these two wards is such that Mr. Dickmann has con sented to wait until Friday evening tor tha action of the committeemen. Ono of the most important features of the list given out by Mr. Dickmann is tho "turning down" of Jere Sheehan of the Third AVard. who. it la said, was. until a week ago, slated for chief deputy at the Pour Courts. Charles Bllhartz. who was dated for execution deputy at the Court house, Is named for chief deputy at the Four Courts, and Sheehan Is given an or dinal? position. Sheehan and his friends E confident of his appointment as chief tJV and It is aeserted that he may ro to accept a. minor position.

She asked that the owner be com pelled cither to she her a key or see that she was admitted whenever she rang the bell. ! .

The llrst night, he said, there was some delay admit ting the plaintiff, and the second night ho nd his family bad gone to bed and did not hear her. Justice Andrews said he could not compel the defendant to give the plaintiff a key to the outer door, as by the terms of her lease she was only entitled to access at reasonablo hours. He granted her a preliminary in junction requiring the defendant to permit Her to enter her premises' at all reasonable hours and promptly open the tloor for her up to 12 o'clock ut night.

Great Hrltaln and Germany have reopeneel the (Jhinese mies tlon by further eibstructlve tnctlcs. appar ently In pursuance of their intention lo present the accomplishment eif a ieaceful settlement. Grent Hritain has taken exeeptlon to the iletlaratlon e-mlecelleel by the Ministers In their agrei-mer.t. that its acceptance by the Imperial Government is .n "indlspensablo e-ondltlon" of ne-gotlatlon with the Chines-i enveiys. aiel Germany desire's a more ex plicit understanding reached on the emes tion of punishment. It will be recalled that the original agree ment was drawn in the shape of an ulti matum, uni'er which the Chinese should accept the elemaiiels or hostilities would bo re-neweel. As a result of the- efforts eif Sec ietuiy I My. r.ctintr in concert with the for clan .Ministers of Japan. If.i--.la arsl France, the word ultimatum was ellmlnateel. ami In lieu the-reof the de-claration was placed In the. amended agre-ement that the acceptance- of the ek-mands should I lndlspensi ble condition of regotiatlon. Great Hrltaln is unde-rstood to want even stronger lan guage use-el. It is belle-veel here that Great Hritain has the support of Gernany, and is lending sup jort to the German suggestion that un understanding- be- reacheel by the Powers rela-tle- te the piinlshme-nt fe-itures of the de lta ml. The- agree-ne-nt drafte-d by the Ministers demands the Imposition of a punishment on tho responsible authors of the outrages "a9 severe as China can Inflict." This phrao was suggeste-l by the Hu sian oviTument which had in mind the weak character of the Chinese Government and which, with the Unite-el States, Japan anil Frai.ee, el-s!red to present a demand for punishment which China could safely comply with.

The Fnlteel Statts had pave-el tho way to acceptance of the- Hu-.-laii preijHis.il by Its note advocating meideration. to which fa vorable responses were- given by all Pow ers. Including Great Hrltaln and Germany. As tho representative's of Great Hritain rnd Germany mut ha-e had instructions in order to appre.ve the amende-el agre-ement drafted by the foreign Ministers, some surprise Is now- eprese-d that the matter should now be openeet after the United States. Japan. Husla and France, had given instructions to the-lr repre?entatives In l'e-kin to tlgn.

Sei:.itor Penrose- of Pennsylvania Is one cf the- me-ii who h.es change-el. Senator Teller's preiposltion haei not be-en eliscussed a week ago. and It is doubtful whe-thcr half of the Senators are familiar with tho treaty. Senate.r Penrose was then claseil as favor ing the; unamended treaty. He said In the secret seslon yesterday that he- would not vote for the treaty unless the Teller amend ment was ndopteel. His position is that a great majority of the citlze-ns of this coun try believe- the-canal should !; an American w-.ite-rway. to Ik; made neutral by America, and to be- defended by this country If tha ewergene-y sheiuld arise. lleie.Hctrlt l Too ltuellrnl. The -onsensui of opinion is that the Da vis amendment will be aib-pted and tha treaty ratilleel without the Teller amend ment. Thus the- United State-s will be per mitted to elefend the canal with the army, but without fortifications, and with th naiy In the harbors at either end of tha waterway. It is the opinion, evidently, of a majority of the Senators that this is all that Is necessary. Senator Lodge is strongly of the opinion that the treaty wll! receive the necessary tno-thlrds vote If the Davis amendment 13 ade-pted. Frederick A". Heills of Yonkers. X AT., who was secretary of the Peace Conference at The Hague, and who is a warm rersonal frienel of Governor Hoosevelt of New York, has been urging Senators to amend the treaty so that the United States can fortify the canal. Senator Teller's amendment began to make headway soon after Mr. Holls opined the campaign. Governor HeKsevelt is also strongly in favor of the fortification of tha canal. Tho Governor, however, did not do any missionary work nmon? tho Sena:ors while here to-day, but he dined with Sen ator I.odge to-night. Mr. l.odge is not willing to take tho ex treme steps Governor Hoosevelt has advocated. table, will have to be made. IJKMA.MJS OF TIIK I'OWKItS. London, Dec. 12.
