CHARLESTON. W. Va., Aug. 19.?
Speculation If rlf?* a* to whom Presi
dent Cleveland will appoint district at
torney. In this connection Joseph Ituff
ner Is prominently mentioned. Ills views
cn the money quefltlon ure well knowi^.
Ii is said his friends can bring a strong
pressure to bear on the ndmlnlntrutlon.
Jaines II. Couch, present assistant dis
trict atorney, has a *trong pull on no
count of hi* familiarity with the olllce
njul his rcllldcnco here, while Stewart
Walker's friends are loudly prospect
ing hi* uppolutmcnt.
Mention U given of another name,
around which volumes of lutereslnK
political gossip center*. It Is that of
John D. Alderson, of Nicholas couuty.
It id natural to suspect Mr. Watts favors
his appointment Inasmuch us he did
more for Watts' gubernatorial boom
tn.m any one else.
It is* said that Alderson. In the event
ct Bryan's election. Is elated and. If he
rhould be named. It would necessitate
no change when the national adminis
tration becomes Popocratlc. This de
I cuds upon Mr. Cleveland's attitude to
ward the sllverltes and whether he In
tends giving them a parting elap or not.
Another phase of the problem Is that
Alderson does not wish to be district at
torney. as he has been slated for secre
tary of state under Watts, If ho la elect
ed. There are many reasons wupportlng
this Idea, not the. least of which Is the
fact that the Nicholas county man was
the father of the Democratic guberna
torlal nominee's candidacy. Those In
a position to know bay that General
Watts was sure of the nomination long
before It was taken seriously here by
leaders and he had so much faith In his
belief that he positively and emphati
cally declined to purcel out any otllces
Mr. Alderson made him thus comfort
able and to Mr. Alderson naturally will
go the best In sight If the election goea
The question now Is what Is to become
of the gang? Information Is that the
present secretary of state will be given
the chairmanship of the new state com
mitter and will be tho lord high dis
penser of sinews of war. Yet further
honors may bd accorded Hon. W. E.
National Chairman Jones Is said to
have his eye on the Kanawhalan.
In the event he Is made state chair
man he may promote him to a berth on
the national executive committee. How
ever, this will not come to pass If Hon.
John T. McGraw can help It. The tight
between the fections Is Tm~fa?t and
furious, with honors a shade in favor of
the Chtrleston pang.
After Col. McOraw beat Mr. Chilton
for national committeeman at Chicago,
the latter gentleman, so the story goes,
set about to play even, and knowing ^he
Taylor man's aspirations to become u
member of the executive committee,
went to Washington and there fixed up
a little matter of his own with the big
combinations now at work.
The state house gang- have plenty of
rough sledging before It.

It Ih understood that Gen. Haggles
will complete tin? arrangements by to
morrow. Thus far It Is settled only
that the President's reception of LI will
I occur In New York and not In Wash
1 Ington. As a result there Is some doubt
whether the Chinese ambassador will
visit Washington at all. as the main
1 purpose of his coming here was to pay
his respects to the President.
1 The propsed visit of Karl IJ to Boston
hnH been abandoned also, the present
plan being to extend the stuy In New

Under these circumstances no arrange

the distinguished guest at Washington.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10.?The Top
ultHt und Silver party national execu
tive committees to-day arranged to
open their headquarters in Wormloy'a.
1 hotel, adjoining those of tho DctnocrAt
I io congressional committor and tho
I branch headquarters of the national
I Democratic committee. This will place
I all the silver headquarters under one
' roof, and enable the respective mana
I alters to work in harmony. Vice Chair
man Stevens, of the Silver party com
mittee, and Secretary Dlddendorfer will
be in charge of the silver headquarters.
(J corse Keen I will have charge of tho
organization of the Silver clubs. Tho
plan of organization and other details
about lis; campaign will be made pub
lic to-morrow. , t
Chairman Lane. It to understood, will
devote his -time almost entirely to the
work of raising funds. It Is expected
that the silver committee will furnish
th<' Populist cuirilnlttce with a large
amount of literature, as the latter com
mittee. like the Democratic committee.
I probably will be hampered a good deal
for Use want of funds. Senator Faulk
ner, chairman of the Democratic con
gressional committee, speaking of the
lack of funds to-night, did not hesi
tate to Bay that the source* of revenue
In past campaigns, principally New
York City, had not and would not re
spond and that the committee would
have to depend un small contribu
tions from tho people.
Chairman Ifutier, of tho I opu 1st
committee, was asked tho following
I 'in view of your statement yesterday
to the effect that the Populist candidate!
are Bryan and Watson, and will be
until the close of the campaign, and will
be earnestly supported to the end with*
out discrimination for or against either,
what will be tho position of your com
mittee with reference to those states
where Democrats and Populists have
fused by the latter taking the state
ticket and the former all the electoral
ticket?" , i, ??
"We have no official information, ho
replied, "that this has been don* In
any state, hut If it has been dono or is
contemplated, the national committee
will not approve or recognize: It. Tho
highest law In any party Is the nctlon
ot its national convention. No men or
state organization can be disloyal to
such supreme authority without array
ing themselves In direct and hostile op
position to the national convention. Our
national convention nominated Bryan
and Watson by an overwhelming ma
Jorlty, and it la the boundon duty of
every loyal Populist to support both of
these candidates earnestly and loyally,
and. besides, Watson stands for what
Bryan stands for, and therefore Bryan
and Watson is the only ticket that rep
resents the^prlnclples that the Peoples
party believes In and has contended for
from the beginning. Mr. Sewall is no
more the candidate of the People's party
than is Mr. Hobart. The executive
committee will see that the action of
1 our national convention Is maintained
j in every stnte. but if there should arise
disaffection or disloyalty to either of
our candidates In any state, then we aro
sure that there nre true Populists in
such state who will support the whole
ticket, and such alone will bo recog
nized by our national committee."
"Does this mean you will Insist upon
a straight-out Bryan and Watson
ticket In every state?"
"No. but it means that wherever Pop
ulism and Democrats join forces on tho
electoral ticket there must be. a duo
and proper recognition of each party s
candidate by a just and equitable di
vision of electors supporting the can
didates of the respectlvo parties."
Senator Butler was asked what effect
this announcement would have upon the
fusion in Kansas, where the Populists
took the state ticket and the Demo
crats the electoral ticket, but he de
clined to go Into specific details, say
ing that his announcement related to
the general policy of the committee.
The statement of Mr. Butler was said
to be the unanimous expression of the

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19.?Haiti?
Overman, who figured so conspicuously
and unenvlably In the Brown church
scandal, has made a confession In which
she declares that she Is a perjurer, and
that Dr. Brown Is all his enemies rep
resented him to be. This startling ad
mission of Miss Overman, made after
months of silence, and after Dr. Brown
has taken up a new home In a new Held,
has reopened the entire case. Ihe wo
man's confession has been .fully con
sidered by the mlnistCVs and laymen
that form the trial court.
Mr. Tunnel I bun gor:? before the mem
bers of the ecclesiastical court and has
corroborated all tlmt Miss Overman
confessed. Tho members of the council
could listen to the startling story, but as
a council I hey could do nothing. M Ira
Overman's confession was placed In the
custody of the secretary of the Bay con
ference. A resolution asking the Bay
conference to take action In the mnttor
was adopted by a unanimous vote. 1 he
Bav conference will therefore meet
without delay In special session.
The ltev. Dr. C. O. Brown will be noti
