FOLC.EK, JAMES AND IIATTON NOMI
NATED. Washington. D. C, Oct. 27. The
President nominated Charles J. Fogler,
of New York, for Secretary of the
Treasury, James for Postmaster-General
and Frank Hat.ton, of Iowa, for
First Assistant Postmaster-General.
CONFIRMED.
The Senate confirmed Fogler for Sec
retary of the Treasury, James for Postmaster-General
and Hatton for First
Assistant? Postmaster-General.
CONSULOU NOMINATIONS
Consulates Charles Kahlo, of Indi
ana, Sydney, Australia ; George V.
Roosevelt, of Pennsylvania, Bordeau ;
J. A. Leonard, of Minnesota, Leith;
J no. S. Robinson, of Tennesee, Tri
poli. ANTI-POLYGAMISTIC.
The President will fulfil the design of
Garlield by taking steps to stamp out
polygamy in Utah.
WILL INSIST ON MACVEAGIl'S REMAIN
ING. It is asserted that recent star route
complications have convinced the Pres
ident that MacVeagh might to remain
so as to conduct the cases and that he
will insist on his doing so or appoint
Solicitor-General Phillips Attorney
General pro tern, until Congress meets.
SLUl'HISE CONCERNING HOWE.
There was some surprise in the Sen
ate that Howe was not nominated for
Attorney General.
Howe s friends claim that he will be
nominated as soon astiie President can
communicate with him.
One objection urged against Howe by
the President's admirers is his age and
iniirmity. They say the President's
administration must be vigorous.
STKATIMM's NOMINATION KE POUT ED
FAVORABLY.
A majority of the Postolliee Commit
tee reported favorably on the nomina
tion of Strathani, Mahone's friend for
postmaster at Lyifchburg. The Demo
crats submit an adverse report and say
they will even filibuster tojlefeat Strat
ham. This is improbable because all
are anxious to leave. The contest will
have to be sharp.
CONFIRMATIONS.
The Senate confirmed Charles W.
Seaton, Superintendent of the Census;
J, L. Beveridge, Assistant Treasurer at
Chicago; Milton C. hlstner, U. S. At
torney for Louisiana; John S. Parris, of
Louisiana, Surveyor-General for Mon
tana. HOWE SENSITIVE.
The connection of Howe's son-in-law
Taitón, with defense of the star route
cases is the chief reason of Howe's un
willingness to accept the Attorney-Generalship.
The President's friends say
it does not figure with him. Howe's
ultimate appointment is regarded as
probable.
WILL LET THE SENATE ADJOURN.
The President has informed the Sen
ators that they can adjourn to-morrow,
as he has only a few more nominations.
GUITEAU WILL BE ALLOWED TWENTY
WITNESSES.
In the Criminal court to-day an order
allowing twenty witnesses to be sub
poemid in behalf of Guitcau, their fees
and costs ofvservice to be paid by the
government,

SUMED. The value of the gold consumed by
manufacturers for the last fiscal year is
$10.000,000, more than 3, 000,000 being
United States coin. The consumption
of silver is equivalent to $30,000,000.
MINERAL LAND DECISION.
The Commissioner of the General
Land Office has decided that land con
taining limestone is not subject. to en
try as mineral land. The Secretary of
the lnierior reverses the decision so far
as it applies to land containing lime
stone and of more value for building
and other purposes than for agricul
tural use.
LAND GRANTS.
The Secretary of the Interior has or
dered a re-survey of the eastern boun
dary of the Moquelmas Mexican grant
in California. A grant has been issued
for Rancho San Diego, Francisco Gar
cia and others grantees, comprising
110,000 acres in Bernalillo connty, New
Mexico. This land grant embraces
several hot springs, said to be of great
medical value.
CONCERNING FOLGEli's APPOINTMENT.
The ready and unanimous confirma
tion of Judge Folger by the Senate to
day shows that the nomination inspires
general confidence among public men.
The rumors connected with Judge Fol
ger that his nomination is to prelude
nis transfer to another sphere are said
by the friends of the President to be
entirely gratuitous. It is well known
that upon the entrance of General Gar
field to oilice it was the great desire of
New York that one oí her citizens
should succeed Secretary Sherman.
Hon. Levi P. Morton was centred upon
and public sentiment in the State was
almost unanimously in favor of his ap
pointment. When it was asserted that
his relation to a banking interest
seemed to be an objection "by the Presi
dent the general desire was that Judge
Folger must be appointed. He was
sent for by General Garfield aud ten
dered the Attorney-Generalship, but
declined. For many days his appoint
ment as Secretary ot the Treasury was
considered a settled matter, but for
reasons not publicly known Garfield
decided upon a Western man and made
the most acceptable selection
in the person of Secretary
Windom. The story, they say, is that
that Judge Fogler takes the Treasury
portfolio now under the condition or
understanding that it is but temporary,
and that it is with a view to trau taring
him to the Supreme bench upon the re
tirement of Justice Hunt has no foun
dation whatever.
NOTELETS.
Folger1 a nomination was received
with approval and not with cnthsiasm.
It is believed he will make an efficient,
safe Secretary.
General James was nominated as a
precaution to avoid ahy quibble regard
ing his future official acts.
Folger1 s appointment will only be
temporary. The President will at the
proper time appoint him Associate
Judge of the Supreme Court.
President Arthur says : " So far as I
am concerned the Senate can adjourn
in two days,"
Ramsdell has been nominated Regis
ter of Wills. It was supposed Webster,
whom Grant backed and whom Rams
d ell supplanted, would get the place.
The only thing urged against Fog
ler's confirmation was that he held
claims against the Government for
compensation while Assistant Treasurer
at New York. It being, learned that
this claim was settled. he was con
firmed. Contributions to the Garfield niemo
rial hospital to date only $557.
420,000 ounces f fine silver were pur
chased for the Philadelphia, San Fran
cisco and New Orleans mints.
Fat Trans-Continental Time.
Chicago, Oct. 27. There is a belief
that the Pennsylvania Railway is about
to put on a train to run from here to
New York on materially reduced time.
It conies from a dispatch from a rail
road official nw in San Francisco that
the agent of the 'Pennsylvania road
there was advertising that after Novem
ber first the passengers by the Pennsyl
vania Railway would be carried from
San Francisco to New York in five days
and two and three-quarter hours. As
the change of time will not be made by
v estern roads, it is certain the change
will be made by the Pennsylvania road
between here and New York. It is also
learned here that this company intends
to rim its 3:30 train to New York from
here so as to reach there by 4 o'clock
next afternoon instead of lOolockat
night. That will be six hours gain, and
the running time from San Francisco to
New York, which is now six days and
six hours, will be decreased about
that much.
Carousing Cowboys Killed.
San Francisco, Oct. 27. A Tomb
stone dispatch says four cowboys, Ike
and Billy Clayton, and Frank and Tom
McLowery have been parading the
tjwn for several days, drinking heavi
ly and making themselves obnoxious.
The city marshal arrested Ike Clanton
and soon after his release the four met
the marshal and his deputies, Morgan
and Wyatt In the city. J. II. Holliday,
marshal, ordered them to give up their
weapons, when a light commenced.
About thirty shots were fired rapidly.
Both the McLawery boys were killed
and Billy Clanton was mortally wound
ed and was dying soon after. Ike was
slightly wounded in the shoulder.
Wyatt was slightly wounded and the
others were unhurt.

THE DAILY NEWS ON BLAIN's CIRCU
LAR. The Daily News says of Secretary
Blaine's circular that it will undoubt
edly receive a friendly hearing, but as
to its logic it cannot be regarded very
powerful.
THE STANDARD'S VIEW OF IT.
The Evening Standard says: Few
Eersons are surprised to learn that the
nited States would regard a European
guarantee of the neutrality of the Pan
ama Canal an unauthorized intrusion.
If Columbia should be hampered by a
European guarantee it would create
complications.

tire world. Our soil, pastures and cli
mate are unequalled for the
propagation of thorougbreds. A par
tial recognition of this is shown
in the l-ecent shipment of a celebrated
English stallion and upwards of two
dozen brood mares to this country by
English parties. Their destination is
New Mexico, and one of tire erentlemen
interested has laid a bet that the Derby
winner will be bred on a New Mexico

A Bunk Badly Bothered.
San Francisco, Oct. 27. A Tucson
dispatch says: It has just been learned
that Dr. C. II. Lord, of the banking
firm of Lord & Williams, had not been
heard from since his departure from
here three weeks ago. The firm had
been wiring to every important point
between New Yorfc and Deming to
learn of his whereabouts, living or
dead. This afternoon a dispatch was
received here saying that Lord was very
sick at St. Vincents asylum, in St.
Louis. This intelligence was given to
the public and at once explained what
appeared to be a mystery. The mem
bers of the firm at first stated that all'
would be satisfactory, and they felt as
though they could pay every dollar of
indebtedness, and have ample to con
tinue business. Dr. Lord had started to
St. Louis to secure payments on ac
counts of beef contracts that he is car
rying for the government. The rumor
that the banking branch of the concern
had accepted money after their as
signment was made, is contradicted. It
is reported that the government inspec
tor made an examination' and found
everything right. During the day two
of the heaviest New York firms with
whom the house had large transactions
wired the firm to state the ftaount
necessary to help them through and it
would be forthcoming. The sympathy
of the community is with the firm and
there is little doubt but what business
will be resumed in a few days.

After a short executive session a re
cess was taken to allow the committees
to consider the morning's nominations.
The session lasted till 5:80 and then
adjourned .
The Tribune on Blaine's Note.
New York, Oct. 27. The Tribune on
Blaine's interoceanic canal circular
says: While Blaine's declaration is en
tirely satisfactory to the American peo
ple it is evident that emergencies may
arise in which we must be prepared to
back up facts with arms or by that
compulsion which nations sometimes
find sufficiently efficient without resort
ing to acts of war. Our position is in
effect not unlike that of Gortchacoff
when, in 1871, he partly annulled the
treaty of Paris with the Powers, who
were restive under the change, but
they had to acquiesce.
Foster's Impression of Arthur.
New York, Oct. 27. The Herald's
Washington sner il says Gov. Foster,
of Ohio, who has had two interviews
with the President says he was favor
ably impressed with his manner, but
more favorably with the remark that
during his term of office he would
know no faction in the Republican par
ty and that he hoped for the cordial
and constant support of every friend of
the party to the end that it might be
free from schism and discord.
