Ave. ! " WAVVVVVVVV V vwvw wwvv STILL MOIHEB PROBLEM A Posial System Must Be Estal) lished on the Islands. THE PROBABLE PO TMASTERS It I Not Believed Tlint Any 1'rn SiiuuI.nu AVill He ItccoKnlzcil The CtilmiiN May Demand All tlie Ofllco.s Tlicrc Tlie Department Evolving n I'liin. The Administration has before it some problems of administration in connection with the new American colonies and Cu ba which are giving hardly less concern than the peace negotiations. One of the problems wh'ch will have to be met, as soon as peace is declared, will be the es tablishment of a postal service for Porto Bico and Cuba. In Porto Rico It Is quite probable that the present postal system In vogue in the island will be continued until an inspector of the Postofllce Department can get over the ground and see just what is needed to bring the system up to the American standard of efficiency. The Postmaster General has decided to send Nathan Smith to the Island as soon as hostilities cease to make an investiga tion and report his observations to the department. Mr. Smith, however, has been taken very sick, and some one else will have to be selected for the duty. Xo difficulties which time and patient zeal cannot overcome are expected by the department in solving the postal problem in Porto Rico. There will be many de tails to work out. and this will take time, but in six months or so the department expects to have the postal system on the island as good as in any of the States. At the outset the present postmasters will be continued in office except where there is too much objection on the part of the native population. All the pro Spanish postmasters will very likely have to go. The advisability of stationing a chief inspector of the Postoffice Department in Porto Rico permanently to Introduce the American methods in the handling of the mails is now being considered. Supt. Beavers, of the salary and allowance di vision of the Postoffice Department, has been charged by the Postmaster General with the duty of working out plans for the postal service in Porto Rico, and is now engaged on the details. His work has not taken such shape as yet that he is ready to make any statement as to the policy "hlch he will advocate. I-. is the postal problem in Cuba that is giving the Administration the most worry. This Is not a question of depiirt mental detail. It is a question of the Administration's policy with regard to Cuba when the peace between the United States and Spain Is declared. When the Spanish government surrenders Cu'a Jind the SpanUIi forces evacuate the island, the whole Spanish administra'ion n Cuba falls to the ground and a new one will have to be set up. One of the first necessities of -he new order of things will be the establisnment of a postal service. To continue the Spanish postmasters In offic Is hardlv to be thought of. Their opportunities tor mischief would be too good. The oues tlon. therefore, presents Itself: If net the Spanish, who? Will ths Administra tion recognize the Cuban government to the extent of allowing it to make the postmasters? This, also, is an extreme Iciprcbablll:'. If the American Government sees f.t to appoint the postmasters, and especially if Americans should be appointed, it would be taken as a declaration of our Intention as to the government of the isl and, and would probably be resented by tlie native population. The President and "the Cabinet have con sidered this question, and are much puz zled as to which course to pursue. All sorts of plans have been suggested. One Is that Americans be appointed as post masters, with the understanding that they are only to last until the plebiscite, which will de.ermine what sort of gov ernment the people of Cuba want. Another is that representative Cubans be selected for postmasters in all I he principal towns, and American clerks he sent to Cuba to Initiate them in -.he work ings of the postal system. The dec-lslon Is not one which can be postponed until aft er peace Is declared, but at the present time Ae Administration Is all at sea -m the subject, notwithstanding the fact that It has been a matter of grave considon tion ever since the prospects of peace arose. Tiiere has been some friction between the Postoffice Department and the "W'.tr Department over the establishment of postoffices in connection with the milita ry camps. I. is said at the Postoffice Department that the department has been much hampered In the work by lac.i of information from the War Department. Frequently the first suggestion that It has had that a postoffice was needed at a military camp was when the complaints of mail failing to reach them came from patrons of the postal system. TO CLEAR TITLE. Jo.sejili A. MeDermott Sues the Ger man Insnrnnee Company. Joseph A. MeDermott filed suit yester day In equity against the German-Amer ican Fire Insurance Company and Charles H. Parker and Albert A. Brooke, trus tees, to compel them to release him from the operation of a deed of trust, which has in part been satisfied. The circum stances which led to this action are that in 1SS4 MeDermott boriowed $2,500 from James Small, for which he gave his prom issory note. This note was secured by a deed of trust on lot No. 5S, In square No. 493, given to Parker & Brooke, as trustees, who In turn made it over to the German-American Fire Insurance Com pany. On April 3. 18S5, the note of MeDermott, it is alleged, was paid and was marked "canceled" by the Fire Insurance Com pany. MeDermott at the time, however, neglected to get a release from the deed of trust, and now appeals to the court to have the cloud removed from the title of his property. The fire insurance company and Charles H. Parker.in answer to the above com plaint, admit the facts as set forth and declare their willingness to give the plain tiff MeDermott the relief he asks. The obstacle in the way of the relief already being given Is that Albert A. Brooke, who was a trustee with Porter, cannot be found. The court is, therefore, asked to discharge Broke as a trustee and Issue a decree canceling the deed of trust In question. Pliywlcinns l.IceiiMeil.

OLD STATUTE HOLDS GOOD American Soltllcrn nml 'Sailors "Who Receive Honorable I)!seliiir;je by Ilcnxon of DlHiibllltles or Wounds Incurred in the Lino of Duty Will lie Hemeiiiliered. One of the chief benefits to accrue to the volunteers of the present war after tho cessation of hostilities will be the preference that will be given them in the matter of appointments In the Gov ernment service. The Revised Statutes of the "United States provide that all persons receiving honorable'dlscharge from the military or naval service of the country by reason of wounds or disability shall be preferred In the matter of civil appointments, and. as the act Is a general one, applying to the veterans of all wars of the Republic, the patriots who fight for their country in the present war will be accorded the same benefits. ' Many of tho men who .shoulder guns for Uncle Sam leave lucrative positions, and, during the storm of battle and tht stress of fatiguing campaigns, they1 fre quently receive wounds or contract dis eases which render them unfit for work in their regular walks of life. Others could return to the positions vacaled by them, but for the reason that dur ing their enforced absence new men have secured their places, thus barring them. It has, therefore, been, deemed wise and proper by Congress to accord them the extraordinary privileges granted In the statute in question. The provisions "of that section are as follows: " "Persons honorably discharged from the military or naval service of the United States by reason of disability re sulting from wounds or sickness Incurred In the line of duty, shall be preferred for appointments for civil oillces. provided they are found to possess th6 business capacity necessary for tho proper dis charge of the duties of such oillces." "W .ienever such claims for preference are granted," said Mr. Bailey, of the CJvll Service Commission, "numerous oth er advantages will also be given them. In the first place, they will be released from all age limitations. Then, again, tney will only have to attain an average of sixty-five per cent In their examinations, while all other applicants will have to reach the required mark of seventy per cent, inasmuch as the names of all vet erans who reach that percentage will be recorded on the register, and certified be fore any others. For Instance, a veteran passing with a per cent mark of sixty-si will be given preference over a civilian attaining even as high as a hundred per cent. "The third advantage which will accrue to .he veterans of '93 In common with the defenders of the Hag in other wars is that they will be released from the laws re lating to the apportionment for the sev eral States and Territories. "The only exception to the regular rule in the vorkings of the statute Is in the case of persons who are dlscharued or who will bo discharged on account of ex piration of service,- and persons ho were entitled to, but who failed to .actually receive, honorable discharges on account of disabilities. The preference will only be given -to those who actually re;eive discharges on account of disability and it must be clearly shown in each cane that the disability resulted from sickness or wounds Incurred in the line of duty." MUST PAY ALJMOWZ. TuHtice Cole Ihhuch RnlcK Afinlnst G. R. Kooiitz and Sidney Lcf tivicli. Justice Cole yesterday issued rules against George R. Koontz and Sidney Leftwich, requiring them to bhow cause on August 16 why they have not obeyed the order of the court to pay alimony to their divorced wives, Mary M. Koontz and Cordelia Leftwich. , , , On her petition, Mary M. Koontz -was divorced from her husband in October, 1S97 and the court decreed that George R. Koontz should pay her alimony in the sum of $23 per month, i Cordelia Leftwich was divorced from her hus band the early part of the present year and her husband was ordered by the court to pay to her $12 monthly as alimony.

Cortilii yesterday ordered an inve4tjpationf intp the trouble in the Third Virginia- Regiment, at Camp Alger. The members, ot that command claim that Gen. Butler acted unjustly and hast ily in issuing the order which placed them under guard. Gen. Bugler still asserts that the Virginians were guilty and de serve, punishment, and he will not hear o any smoothing over in the matter. Yesterday Attorney General Montague, Senator Martin, and Congressman Lamb, of Virginia, called on Gen. Corbin and at their request the latter has ordered an Investigation, which Major Mills will be gin this morning and will continue it until the facts in all the cases are de veloped. The latest news of moving is that the .Second Division will leave Thoroughfare Gap on Monday for Mlddletown, Pa. Or ders to this effect have been received at corps and division headquarters and the troops are getting into "skeleton" form so that they can jnove on short notice. The Second Division consists of the Third Xew York, Third Missouri, Fourth Missouri, Seventh Illinois, Twenty-second Kansas, Second Tennessee, One Hundred and Fifty-ninth Indiana, First Rhode Isl and, and the recruits from the Thirty third and Thirty-fourth Michigan and Ninth Massachusetts. The division is commanded by Brig. Gen. Davis. The First Division has as yet received no orders to move, but will probably go to Sea Girt, "N. J., within a week. Not a soldier, in camp has received a drill for a whole week. Regimental dress parades, battalion drills and even squad drills have been impossible owing to the heavy rains for the past six days. The grounds around, camp are ankle deep in slushy mud and the roads are all but Im passable. Guard mounting is only accomplished by subjecting the troops to a half hour of misery, as, it is impossible to march over the slippery clay. The typhoid epidemic is practically over. Only five casea were reported yes terday. Capt. Meade, assistant surgeon of th'e Sixty-fifth New York, has been placed In charge of tho typhoid ward at the first division hospital, and the pa tients are doing splendidly. About one-third of tho men in each regiment are suffering from rheumatism owing to the Incessant rains and con- i tlnued sleeping in damp clothing in flood ed tents.

The selection of the portrait of Father Marquette to adorn the one-cent Oma ha exposition stamps has created a good deal of comment, and the postoffice au thorities have received letters from all over the country requesting information on the subject. It has been pointed out to the Government officials that Father Marquette was a foreigner and was not a prominent figure either In American literature or science. Third Assistant Postmaster General -Merritt has written a letter in which he tells why the design was adopted. The question of politics or religion never en tered the minds of the officials who had the matter in charge, so the letter states, and they selected Marquette because he was one of the pioneers of the region In which the exposition was to be held. It was, therefore, appropriate, so the man agers of the affair thought, that the por trait of the man who had done so much to show the length and breadth of the Mississippi and to open that mighty body of water to future navigation. In his ! letter Mr. Merritt wrote: "Father Mar quette did not discover the Mississippi, It Is true, neither did Vespucci discover America, but the country is named for him. Columbus was equally as much a foreigner as Marquette, who perform ed his duties as a pioneer In such an able manner as to entitle him to citizenship." Concrrt'.siiiiin Ilnrko Rcnoinlnnteil.
