Talk on tho Subject A Brief History of
the Incoming Cabinet Officer.
WAsniNOTOif, Nov. 17. Tho report was
curront here last night that Don M. Dickin
son, who was reconiiy
offered tho appoint
ment of postmaster
general, had written
to tho prosldont ask
ing to be definitely
advised as to tho da'o
upon which he would
bo oxpectod to assume
charge of the depart
ment Whilo thero is
no ofllclal confirmation ot this rumor thero
can bo llttlo doubt of its truth. Mr. Vilas,
adhering to the rulo which ho laid down for
himself whon tho subject of cabinst chnnpos
was first agitated a few weeks ago, refuses
to say anything whatover m to what he
may know of the president's intention. He
does not deny the roport that ho is to take
the interiqr portfolio, which, it Is argued,
be would hasten to do if it were not sub
At tho White House nothing could be
learned beyon.l tho faot that the rumor of
Mr. Dickinson's aceepronco .had boon re
ceived thero. Inquiry with regard to tho
tender of tho appointment by the president
and Mr. DicknnonN reply was mot with a
refuxnl to di cuj tho subjaot Judgo Chip
man, of Detroit, con jresman-elect of tho
Fiivt Michiijrtn dNtrict, who is a warm por
cnnal friend f Dickinson, and whoso advice
lrni otiou cimlol him at critical points in a
rather eventful career, said:
"While I have V6 positive information on
tho sul'j-ct, I am confident that Mr. Dick
inson has a'lvsol thi presidont of his no
ce'i tance of the proffered appointment In
going into the cab.nat ho Is actuated solely
by a desire to p.ease Mr. Cleveland and a
largo number of his friends nnd admirers
who have strongly urged him to tako the
place. lie has tha greatest possible admira
tion for Mr. Clovoland, and boliove3 thor
oughly in his administration, sinenrity and
Integrity of purpose. Ho hai watched with
interest evory stop taken by the adminis
tration and is In the strongest sympathy
with its course on loading questions. Mr.
Dickinson possesses the confidenoj of the en
tire conservative and business eloment of
the west, and within the past few days has
received scores of letters and telegrams
from gontlemou prominent in tha business
circles f New York urging him to aooopt
"I have advised him to go into the cab
inet, though if it were the beginning, rather
than tho end of tho presidential term I
should not do so, and I am confident Mr.
Dickinson would not entertain tho proposi
tion. I estimate the income from his law
practice to be something over $50,000 per
annum. One of his partners, Judgo Hos
raer, has just been appointed to the olrouit
bench, and the business' absolutely demands
Dickinson's attention. Elliott O. Stevenson,'
a prominent attornoy of Tort Huron, has
accepted the offer of Mr. Dickinson, made
some time sinoe in view of the retirement of
Judge Hosmer, and will go into tho llrm.
While this' arrangement in a measure will
reliove Mr. Diokinson of much of the drudg
ery of his praotico, I know that ho is pre
pared to make a very substautlal sacrifice
topleaso the president in this matter."
The preference for Mr. Dickinson, which
has boon shown by the president in this ap
pointment, began almost at the first' meet
ing of the two man, This occurred shortly
after Mr. Cleveland's eleotion, whoa Mr.
Diokinson, at tho hood of a Michigan dele
gation of fellow-Democrats, visited the pros-ident-eleot
at Buffalo. Mr. Cleveland was
particularly pleased with the manner of tho
Michigan leader, and the two rapidly be
came well acquainted. Inquiries by the
president confirmed the roport of Mr. Diok
inson as a shrewd politician, and as the lat
ter often visited Washington in attendance
upon the su proms court, and always
hastened to the White House to pay 'bis re
spects to the president, tho acquaintance,
begun almost casually, soou became Inti
mate. When President Clevelaud was eltcted the
problem with him was to reassert and main
tain the rights of tho exocutlve as against
the encroachment of senators and congress
men, in thi matter of Federal patronage.
In carrying out this polioy it was neceswy
to find iu each 'state some advisor not in
congress. In Michigan he selected the
chairman of the Democratic State1 Central
committee, theu, as now, Mr. Dickinson.
In his suggestions ot appointments Mr.
Dickinson has made selections oreditable to
the state as a whole, and at the same time
has strengthened his p'arty. Mr. Dickinson
steadily declined any favors for himself,
however, other than the appointment of a
relative to a minor oflloe. By his discreet
ness, especially with roxard to personal in
terviews with the president, not the slight
est bint of which he has ever allowed to be
come public, ho continued in the president's
opinion to deserve tho confidence reposed in
Mr. Dickinson was born 'at Port Ontario,
Oswego county, New", York, January 17,
J64& His mother's ancestors came from
Wales. Whon two yean old he came to
Detroit with bis ' parents. He passed
through the comhion schools of the olty,
and after a year's ' instruction under a
privato tutor he entered the Michigan uni
versity. Whon he graduated from the law
department he returned to Detroit and im
mediately entered upon the proctloe of tho
law. Ho mixed considerable politics with
his business. In 167 J Mr. Diokinson was
chairman of tha Demooratio State Central
committee, and his enthusiasm and enorgy
proved so ncceptablo to the party that at'the
opening of the campaign he was unani
mously urged to resume the management,
which he did, though with much reluotance.
His labors were manifested in the result
Michigan's Democratic vote was increased
in a greater proportion than that of any
other state in the Union. Since that time
Mr. Dickinson has been the recognized
leader of the Michigan Democraoy.

Remarkable Freak of Nature Iteporte'd
From Chattaooochee, Florida.
Jacksonville, Fla., Nov 11. A most
remarkable freak ot nature at Chattaooo
choe is attracting great attention, and hun
dreds of people are coming miles to see it
At Barney Hill, a small colored settlement
ten miles from here, a colored woman some
weeks ago gave birth to a boy child that
nearly scared them all to death. The in
fant was healthy and well developod when
born and has continued in good condition
since, but the strangest part is its color. Zt
is divided into two halves, as it .were, each
representing tho Caucasian and African
race. One sido from tho center of its fore
bead down is as black as coal, while the
other is equally white and fair.
Another monstrous freak ot dame' nature
is shown by tho fao that the Caucasian side
has thick lips and flat noss, kinky hair and
black eyes in fact, all the African charac
teristics, while the dark sido bos fair and
good features, blue eyes and soft silky hair.
It is in perfect health, and grows fast Its
arrival created terrible hubbub in the set
tlement, and the negroes wore inclined to
regard it as an omen of evil.
