Schofield, who retires Sun day, it will probably be Wen. Miles. ta between the civil and military authori 1..S ties on matters of policy. Desides, it is Mr. Cleveland's idea that in time of peace, when the chief mission of the troops is to quell domestic riots and enforce the orders of executive officers •j• in Washington, good order and disci pline can be subserved by exalting the y: -u'• civil authority over the military. f' May Speculation as to .Scliofleld's suc cessor has heretofore been limited to two names—Miles and Rug-er—and the former is the senior officer, aud according to precedent entitled to the command. The only reason to doubt the certain ty of liis being designated was the fact that a protest had been made against it and also because of some alleged dis agreement between the president and Gen. Miles about the policy of handling the Debs strike at Chicago. Gen. Ruger, who is next to Miles in rank, is in high favor with the president. Secretary Lamont is in favor of Gen. Miles, lie is now in conference with the president on the subject at Gray Gables aud expects to return in time to make an announcement Monday. Before leaving Washing'ton .lie stated that if asked for a suggestion by the j,e Would recommend that Gen. Miles be given the command. ,• May Lean Place Vacant. 1 President Cleveland, it is understood, hesitates to designate a general for the -./• army because he holds it is not author ized by law and that there is no warrant for it. except precedent. The navy department has no coui rnandcr and the president argues that a a a a vi out a commander in time of peace. If Mr. Cleveland adheres to this opinion he will be carrying out his well-known ideas of lopping off useless official frills, and will thus be relieved of hon oring Gen. Miles, whom he dislikes. The president reached the conclusion that a general in the army in the time of peace is a useless institution from his experience in the strike, when there were frequent conflicts of ideas SECURE HIS ICELKASfc. llabeaa Corpus runted In the Cage of Maj.

McHenry and Bigelow Ap pointed Over Northern Pacifio. They Represent Line of Policy of the Ex-Receivers Bondholders Are Dissatisfied. Alti.wAUKEE, Sept. 28.—In tlie United States circuit court Saturday morning, Judge Jenkins appointed two receivers for the Nortlieii Pacific to succeed Messrs. Rou3e, Oakea and Payne, who resigned to avoid an appearance before Judge Hanford, at Seattle, Wash., on October 2, to answer to the charges of malfeasance tiled against them in that court by llrayton Ives, the presi dent of the road. The new receiv ers named by Judge Jenkins arc Edwin W. McHenry, of St. l'aui, who ha3 for years been chief engineer of the North ern Pacific, and Frank G. ltigelow, president of the First national bank of Milwaukee. Judge Jenkins said he would not appoint a third receiver for the road, but that he might do so later if it should be found necessary for the proper administration of the trust. The attorneys representing the Farmers' Loan and Trust company nominated Thomas II. Lowry, the street railway magnate of Alinneapolis, and president of the Alinneapolis & Sault Stc. Alarie road, for appointment as one of the receivers. The court said that the Minneapolis & Soo road is a part of the Canadian Pa cific system, a competitor of the Northern Pacific, and, although Mr. Lowry had agreed to resign the presi dency of the Soo road in the event of his appointing him as receiver, he could not consider his candidacy. Air. Walker, receiver of the Santa Fe sys tem, was also proposed as a receiver. The new rcoeivers represent the same line of.policy that lias been fol lowed by Oakes, House and Payne. Air. Bigelow is one of Receiver Payne's bondsmen and is a costock liolder with him in the First national bauk, the Alilwaukec Street Railway company and the Wisconsin Telephone company. Edwin W. AlcHenry was appointed chief engineer of the Northern Pacific system under the Villard regime.' There is much discontent among the bondholders over the appointments. STRUCK BY A TRAIN.
